While the law must be enforced we can't blame these young persons for doing something many of us did in our younger days. Slipping over the fence for a midnight dip isn't any mark of delinquency. Rut there's another side of this late-night activity at the big pool here. Pool attendents and lifeguards sec the story nearly every morning — beer cans littered all around, some in the water, and even broken gl.'USS. One of the major causes of mishaps at the pool this summer hits been cut feet on broken glass. Recently, a boy (from out of town), came out of the water with a gash in his foot. His father, also in swimming, started looking for what caused the injury. In doing so he also wna cut. A lifeguard was summoned, and discovered tho culprit, Tt was the bottom section of a whiskey bottle, which had lodged in a crack at the bottom of the pool — with the jagged edges pointing upward. It's possible it could have ]>cen placed in the pool by some late-night swimmer. The out-of-hours swimming can be tolerated. The breaking of bottles in or along the pool is a different matter. We happen to know that police aren't nearly as concerned over the late swimming as they are of the drinking activities which some young people carry on around the pool. So the law against trespassing inside the pool will be enforced. While it was most pleasant to be residing this fcpace instead if writing it for the past week or so, it is something of a relief to be back on the job. For one thing we hncl such an "unfinished" feeling during our days of freedom from the press and deadline — like you get after you've retired for the night and start remembering all you've left undone. Several times as we were cleaning up after lunch, we panicked with a "Good grief it's after one and not a line is written." THEN WE felt guilty being in town when folks kept asking why we weren't "out" on vacation. Well, we were away four days (only three publication days). d h. It doesn't take any particular talent to fit n vacation into four clays. All you really need is a limited budget. * * * SINCE WE failed to turn over the Cat Placement Bureau business to Mayor Sloan, we have this Special that's a week or more old: Three nice kittens ready for good homes. Contact Mrs William L. Boles, 305 Davis. Phone 6-4890. * * * MORE ABOUT cats: If you live in the West Side and your family cat is missing, check at the Humane Society shelter. We have a report from a kindhearted lady that a West Side resident, presumably a cat-hater and or birdlover, has a cat trap baited with sardines that's been going groat guns. The cat trapper, according to our informal, snares the cats and then calls for them to be hauled off to the shelter. It's caused crowded conditions in the shelter's cat quarters. It doesn't occur to many who lose cats and kittens that the feline pets have been deported. Hoi Boyle Says; Medical Check Gives Status NEW YORK (AP)—Getting an annual medical clun-kup is a leading status s'ymlx)! today—particu- early if it turns up a rare ailment no one else has. I wondered why old acquaintances were cutting me dead in the street, and strange,i- s fled from me at cocktail parties. Finally, an old friend took me aside anil said: "I hate to be the one to have to tell you this, but it's your own fault people have lx»n\m to avoid you. You've let our s«t down dreadfully by failing to get your annual medical checkup. "This leaves no common ground for discussion." I protested that after my last chei'kup five years ago the doe- tor told me I was "medically un- interostini;." "I'd die rather than let word of that get around in our crowd," I said. "Oh, surely there' s something wrong with you by now," replied jivy friend cluvnngly. "Get another checkup.'' So 1 did. Remember when all the doctor did was to make you stick out your tongue and say "ah," thump you on the chest, listen to your ticker, and then tell you to take a dose of F.psom salts? Those simple days are past. Medicine is on the assembly line now. My doctor didn't make me say "ah," at all, but examined me from stem to stern with instruments I'd never seen before —and don't want to again. "Well?" I asked, when he had finally pu tme back on my bare feet again. "You don't have athlete's foot, and your scalp seems okay," he said. "But everything in between i s suspect.'' "And that means—?" I whimpered. "lust a few routine hospital tests," he answered consolingly, as 1 tried to remember the name of my friendly neighborhood undertaker. Koutine? They X-ray you, stare at your gizzard through a fluoroscope, pour liquid chalk and other chemicals into you. run your symptoms through data processing and computer gadgets. Then a pretty technician needles you and draws off enough blood to put the American Red Cross over it s national collection goal for l'Jt>;i. Finally they strap you into a death-house like machine called an electrocardiograph that snitches on your madly pounding heart. As you lie tlu>re listening to the pretty technician, talk about her vacation, you try vainly to think up some famous last words. The only phrase that comes to mind is—"pray now—pay later." Several days later, after the doctor had reviewed all this medical machine gossip, i crept cringingly into his office for the verdict. "Well, if jou give up your lwisterou s an ( | profligut ( . ways, and settle down to a calm and sensible way of life," .said tho doe- tor, "you should last for a long time yet. But, of course, (his is no guarantee. I don't have a pipeline to the l./inl." "Yeah, doc." 1 mumbed. "I'ut just what exactly is wrong with me?' 1 "Specifically, you're at least 20 pounds overweight, and you have a protuberant verruca on your forehead?" .-"Wliat'^ a protuberant ver- ruca?" I pleaded, wiping my brow. "A big wart! 1 ' I should be the life of the party in my set from now on.

Well, He's A Dirty Imperialist Peacemonger" ^ Drew Pearson Reports Interest Conflict Looms In Pharmaceutical Grant JACK ANDERSON EDITOR'S NOTE: Drew Pearson has gone abroad to interview world leaders and report on the prospects for peace. The Washington scene is covered by his associate, Jack Anderson.) WASHINGTON —The public health service, with a furtive backward glance at the taxpayers, has just slipped $100,800 to the American Pharmaceutical Association to study how pharmacies can serve as community health centers, The association's executive director, William Apple, will also help the University of Pittsburgh spend another $221,057 of the taxpayers' money to study drug costs and uses. By a curious coincidence, the public health service's pharmacy chief, Dr. George Archambault, happened to be doubling in brass as president of the American Pharmaceutical Association while both grants were being processed. HC acknowledged to this column thai, as APHA president, he had set up the committee which requested the $100,800 handout. Wearing his other hat, as PUS pharmacy chief, he had been consulted informally about the grant. But h e insisted that he had nothing to do with the final decision to award tike money. Dr. Archambault defended the decision, however, as "wonderful for the public." The money would be spent, he said, to make public health information available to people at their neighborhood pharmacies. Wasting no time, APhA has already put its communications director, Cieorye Griffenhagen, on tlie taxpayers' payroll at $12,000 a year to gel the program started. Critics have questioned whether APhA is interested in benefiting the public or the pharmacies. Turning pharmacies into public health centers, they point out, will also lure customers into the drug store's. On an earlier occasion, APhA suppressed news of counterfeit drills in order to protect the pharmacies from losing business. Director Apple brought pressure upon the Armstrong Cork Company to cancel a TV show, exposing liov, counterfeit pills and powders une being peddled to the public. Note —Tile public health service has kipt strangely silent about the APhA grant. A PUS spokesman c I a i m e d that the APhA application was a "privileged communication" though it dealt with public money. This column learned, however, that the grant was applied for in March, two months before Dr. Archambault retired as APhA president. The justice department has brought pressure upon a grudging Italian embassy to help prepare a deportation case against New Orleans racketeer Carlos Ma reel lo. The Italians aren't at all enthused about accepting the terror of the .New Orleans under world. He wasn't even born in Italy, but in Tunisia. It was his Italian parentage, the justice, department aver>, that makes him de-portable- now Earlier, \.\i ti immigration ser- vice tried to get rid of him by hustling him off unceremoniously to Guatemala. 'But Marcello grew tired of the drowsy, dolce vita in the banana republic and smuggled himself back into the United States. H e has used every stratagem in the law books to stay here. Now the justice department is going to try again to declare him an undesirable alien. In this effort/ Attorney General Robert Kennedy has obtained the reluctant cooperation of the Italian embassy, which sent to Italy for paper s proving Marcello's parentage. The Italian authorities are privately irked over the American habit of casting the derelicts from the American underworld upon their shores. They learned their nefarious skills, 'the Italians argue, in the United States. George Lincoln Rockwell, the s e 1 f-styled American feuhrer, has ordered his storm troopers to "block the bridges" on August 28, to stop Negro demonstrators from marching on Washington. He has been barnstorming up and down Virginia trying to recruit volunteers to help back up his Nazi stand against the Negroes, so far, he has enlisted fewer than 100 men who will be somewhat outnumbered by the 100,000 Negroes. If Rockwell and his Nazis start trouble at the bridges, police have promised privately they will be hustled off to jail. Housewives may no longer be permitted to save trading stamps if Congress, as appears likely, passed the quality stabilization- bill. This would let a manufacturer set retail prices on his products, which would knock out both discount stores and trading stamps. (Legally, the stamps are considered a price discount.) French President Charles de Gaulle is going ahead with plans to test his first hydrogen bomb on a remote South Pacific island in the Tuamotu Archipelago. The French are expected to develop an H-bomb before the end of the year, although the test site probably won't 'be ready until next spring. (What worries Washington is that a French explosion might give the Russians an excuse to tear up the test ban treaty and blame the West.) Stafford Farmer Killed STAFFORD, Kan. (AP) — A Stafford farmer, Herman Perry Dickson, 45, was killed Wednesday night when his car crashed into a semi-trailer truck jackknifed on U.S. 50 five miles east of here. Trooper Tony Bendle said the driver of the truck. Junior Set- tlemeiers, 33, Waurika, Okla.. had jackknifed it trying to 'turn around.
