It;was night when we walked In and there were beautiful bedrooms in flat white and gold and an.' electric kitchen in robin's egg blue and a living room with modernistic furniture, a color television set, a porch hanging over the ocean, and a man about : to jump off the roof. - . "Excuse me," 1,said? to Mr. Hah, "is that man out there going to jump off?" Mr. Hartnod- ded.; Chief took thefatcigarout of his fat face. "It's goingtobe. messy on the boardwalk." "Idiots,". Gayle said. "He di- ves'into a swimming pool below." Mr. Hart nodded. "On-' ce a week," he said. I shook my head." "As long-as they don't move the pool," I -said. In the morning, Gayle tried the swimming pool. Chief and I.tried rolling chairs on the boardwalk. This time we'were inside;-: We took the kid to the Steel 'Pier and saw the'exhibits and the shows. Planes flew up and down trailing big signs proclaiming that .Jack E. Leonard would star at the 500 Club. A middle-aged woman with a diamond like the bottom .of a milk bottle cassia - rge eyes at Chief. : • -, • What a coward he is. .He ran. <She told him that all she was looking for was companionship, but he wanted her to spell out what it means.

It was also the first time I ever saw her so good to her 'father. Every simple thing I said like: "Please pass the sugar" becamehilari- pus. '-.'.' Young Mr. Avalon is a topflight rock V roll singer. He's 19. He's polite and his hair is bunched uponhisheadlikeloose hay. There are symphonic violinists out of work, but when Avalon blasts a tone across his tonsils, ope million teen-agers go out and buy: the record..... After several days, we said, farewelli Back at the Atlantic City Marina, we found that the ship-to- shore aerial had been cut in half by some kind soul; We tested the boat'on one engine and the area harbormaster, give us a ticket for making'a wave. He said that "me and my boys .wrote out 12 books.of tickets this summer. We're tryingtoget more." Friendly natives. ' Gayle and Chief didn't want to go home, I said that four days was enough for me. The bankroll wouldn't stand more. We were on baloney-skin sandwiches all the way north. The Away We Go Uplowedinto a running sea. I took the wheel, and the bows lifted high and shook the salt foam off. Gayle smiled. "That's some place - AOanticCity. I'mgladwewent. How come you picked it?" "No reason.'.' I said.

Everett McKinley (R-IU.). the Senate GOP leader, proposes meantime to.clear theairbefore quitting by installing an extra back page on the Congressional Record, Congress' own dailypaper. Dirkseo concedes that two back pages may be difficult to arrange and .will settle, he says, for an extra front page instead. Why that would be any-easierbe didn't explain, • Dirksen's problem.Is that Democratic leader Lyndon B.

He is going to 'explain pojjtonally to the heads of our allies- .England. France and West Ggmany just why he initiated the exchange of visits by himself and Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev to RUB-. sia and the United States, respectively. He is look-, ing for their participation in planning the tenor and extent of his conversations with the Russian leader. Behind these answers are some considerations more obscure, but more important In the first place Ike, in his talks with Khrushchev, .will be similar to a spokesman for an In-i dependent and divergent group of! associates. He knows, full well that Khrushchev will appear at the White House a much more autonomous leader than the President, with a much greater latitude in making proposals, concessions and conclusions than, does the President. • If Eisenhower Js.'to confer with Khrushchev on equal terms, he must have firm agreements from jllies on the limits they will accept on negotiated settlements °522? h P roblems as Berlin, 'German.' unification, disarmament and weapons testing, to mention only a few.

' i SENATE OFFICE BUILDING-As If tee going hasn't bSst. rough enough for the architect of the Capitol, one of the na- outstanding architectural magazines has now come out in criticism of the new $25 million Senate Office .building. Be criticism was not aimed at such 'mundane ; as slippery floors, unworkable elevators, bad sties and eerie screechings front the public fess system. It went to the very heart of the yersy and vehemently attacked.the afchitec- form itself, from the materials:, used in con^ ction to the design of the building with its completely false 3n<£.phony entrance.

By ARTHUR MGBEE Dnited Press International PARIS (UPI) - All the political indicators point to. a fresh effort by Gen. Charles de Gaulle for peace in Algeria. Some predict de Gaulle may give Algeria self• government with close ties to France and cast- iron guarantees for, the minority of one million Frenchmen-in Algeria (a minority often forgotten by those who think immediate outright independence is the only answer). De Gaulle, a man. who keeps bis own counsel, may not go that far. But the time is ripe for a new peace initiative of some klnd-and some previously immovable forces now seem ready to step forward to meet it. De Gaulle himself has perceptibly modified his public approach sjncehetook power IS monthsago. At that time he was referring to Algeria as "French soil, now and forever.' ' Last fall he indicated that France and Algeria were not one and the same thing: 'The future of Algeria. . . .will be built ona double base - its personality and its close solidarity with metropolitan France.", . .. ... In taking office as President last January heput it more strongly, speaking of "the Algeria of tomorrow, pacified and transformed, developing . herself her personality and closely associated.' with France." ; • De Gaulle's prfcpe minister, Michel ems more uncompromising than his chief. But slightly -more than two weeks ago, in. the middle of a characteristically fire - eating speech, hp. let .drop these words: "It is through ditions." This was a marked change from the one-time rebel insistence that the French must concede Algeria's right to independence before the rebels would talk to them," .These changes of position on both sides may seem minor, at first glance. But they are significant, and they came at a tune when circumstances pointing to a fresh peace offensive are converging. TRY FACTS CLASSIFIED 11! THE BRAZOSPORT FACTS ESTABLISHED till JAMES 8 NABOBS.
