Ta!;ing the Show on the Road There were a few changes. The scene was different, for example. Thft cast wtfsj younger and smiled more. But otherwise the atmosphere was distinctly reminiscent of San Francisco '64. It was, of course, Omaha '67 (and the difference in meeting sites may be indicative of the esteem in which the Republican Party holds its younger members) and the Young Republicans of America were getting together to name a national chairman and discharge other business. One of the OOP's old troupers (still playing the heavy), Barry Goldwater was there. Richard M. Nixon, one of the nation's great standup comedians, was winging into Omaha airport (though surely not on one of Frontier Airlines' DC-3's) and Ronald Reagan was articulating "brown cows" up in the hotel room, which doubtless had a view of Omaha's splendiferous stockyards (the city is a principal center of bull shipping). There were other nuances which brought to mind San Francisco "64, where the GOP left its heart, not to mention its hat, gloves and shirt. For example, there is a toothsome candi. date for the YR presidency from Tennessee who was (until today's voting) campaigning on a conservative ticket. There was a chap from Ohio campaigning on a "liberal" platform and there was Ray Cooper from Arkansas, who presented himself as a moderate. In mid-week, Mr. Cooper cried "foul." What Mr. Cooper termed "the syndicate," he said, is running the show and has assured a conservative take over of the YR's. It was the echo of Nelson Rockefeller and William Scran ton from the San Francisco convention. Mr. Goldwater (whose storm troopers took over in the Golden State amid the boorishness of the 1964 national convention) was up on the platform coming forth with some old hee-haws about foreign policy, which is not one of his strong points. One Arkansas Young Republican commented privately this week that the way the Omaha show is moving, "It's probably going to give us some trouble in '68." It probably will. ^^ 4 ^ 4444 *«««*«««********************** 4 (Hollywood Highlights f\i (~)p n,/ , l/tetV6 ^-^f \-SttlGfa New Paper Dresses To Resemble Nylon Don't look now but that lady standing over there just might be wearing a paper dress. They are hitting the market now in fairly substantial numbers and at a distance one can hardly tell whether the material is paper or some fancy grade of nylon or rayon acetate, or perhaps, slik. Visit a friend in a hospital and it's just possible he is resting in bed on which there is a sheet of paper. The hospital gown may also be made of paper. Or drive your car into the service department of your dealer and the service salesman may greet you in a white jumper coat made, not of cotton, but paper. These are just a few of the items made of paper mentioned the other day at the Southwest Paper Merchants Association convention at Tulsa, Oklahoma. The mrechants are gearing themselves to take advantage of the changes that are taking place in this old modern world. No longer will they be handling just wrapping paper, bags and printing pap- ers. There are such things as shoes, wiping papers for industrial uses, hats, shirts, table cloths (oops! paper coverings!) even tents and houses—all made of paper. The dealers in paper may become specialists to hospitals, institutions, restaurants, hotels, and so on. Also, they see a tremen- duos market for refuse bags and say that garbage cans could become a thing of the past. Refuse bags will be used to hold discarded dresses, the shirts, bed sheets and so on, as they are discarded because it will be cheaper to buy new ones. The way the paper industry is thinking about new products means more emphasis is going to be placed on growing trees as a crop to furnish the pulp necessary to make these items. Tree farming may become an even bigger industry than anyone dreamed a quarter of a century ago.—Laurel (Miss.) Leader- Call. A Local Responsibility Reports are that there was no open violation of the law in Marked Tree Sunday in regard to the sale of beer. As far as can be ascertained there was no covert law violation either, however this, might be harder to pinpoint with certainty. These reports indicate that we have taken the first step toward eradicating a problem of long standing in Marked Tree that grew out of the sin of commission on the part of violators and the sin of omission on the part of the enforcers. It is a problem that should trigger embarrassment and regret on the part of all responsible local residents for the simple fact that we apparently had the only community in this section where this violation was so flagrant.

East was marked with the ten of diamonds and the only hope for the defense was to collect either two heart tricks or one heart and one trump. Anyway, West led another diamond. Declarer ruffed and played ace and ten of trumps. His idea was to win the expected heart return, cash two clubs ruff a low club, enter dummy witSi the jack of trumps and discard both heart losers OB the last two clubs. "East was no fool and led a trump right back. Declarer could only discard one heart and lost four tricks. ' Declarer made his error it trick four. His first trump lead should have been the ten. This would leave a sure extra entry to dummy and he would have made the hand in spite of fail- break evenly." We can't agree with Mr. Tn- gram's criticism of West's failure to lead a heart since we can visualize lots of situations where he would be dropping the king into declarer's ace- queen but we do admire his suggestion of how South should have played the hand.

He is Liverpool-born Geoffrey Shurlock, 72, who administers the production code for the Motion Picture Association. Between 90 and 95 per cent of the movies seen in American theaters pass through his office. There they are measured for compliance with the industry's self-censorship code. Shurlock, a brisk, smallish man, insists that I'm just a paid employee, trying to apply the code which the producers have created." Yet his power is undeniable. Rarely are his decisions disputed or appealed. With films turning, more and more to realism in language and treatment of sex, Shurlock finds his office under continuing fire from industry and public critics. I think we are doing a good job of reflecting the taste of fte American public," he says. After all, the people are the final judges. They will generally accept what is reasonable and reject what is in bad taste. We watch very closely the reaction ef the public to what appears on the screens. After all, what other good judgment is there except the general good sense of the public?" Shurlock points proudly to the fact that the United States is the only country in which censoring is entirely in the hands of those who make the films." In all other countries censorship is done to a greater or lesser degree by the government," he said.

Hollywood's self-censorship stemmed from scandals in the 1920s, when moralists assailed the industry and threatened to create censor boards in every state and city. A strict code of morality was created and enforced. Only last year was tha code reduced to basic, generalized statements. That was something Shurlock had been advocating .for years. He also had advocated a classi. fication system for age groups, as is done in most other countries. In the past year 14 movies have been passed by the code administration with the label, suggested for mature audiences." Shurlock operates in the Producers Association office in the Rexall Drug Building at Beverly and LaCienega Boulevards. Before shooting begins, producers submit two copies of their scripts. They are read by two of Shurlock's six-man staff. Every morning at 10 the seven industry censors meet to discuss scripts. Letters are sent to the producers with possible suggestions that there might be too much sex or brutality in certain scenes. Each letter carries the notice: You understand our final opinion must be based on the completed picture." Shurlock and his assistants are available for consultations with producers over troublesome scenes. Often questionable material will be filmed with the hope that the director's sense of taste will make the material acceptable. Fur can fly when the final film is presented for approval. Sometimes producers refuse to make suggested cuts. Then they can appeal to the directors of the Producers Association, joined by six theater operators and four independent producers. That is the court of last resort. EBB COURIER NEWS (HE cotrrcim NBWS co. H. W. RAINES. ruBLISHEB RARRX « HMNE8 Assistant . nbltsher-Editot PAU1 O.

The trouble often results frm preparing food with hands that have cuts infected with staphylococci, the common pus former. This germ may also enter the food if the hands preparing it have touched tlie nose. As the germs multiply in the food, they produce a poison that causes vomiting and diarrhea. If you let the contaminated food stand for as little as two hours at room temperature a heavy concentration ot the poison will result. Once the poison has formed it cannot be destroyed by refrigeration. Thorough cooking will destroy the staphylococci but not their poisons. The best way to prevent a sad- ending to your picnic is to omit perishable foods from the menu. Bring potato chips instead of potato salad, frankfurters instead of chicken salad and cookies or raw frujt instead of custards, cream puffs or eclairs. Canned oods don't require refrigeration iut they should not be opened until they are to be served.
