THE BRA|$SPORT FACTS BXTOttAL PAGE Brazosport and Brazoria County, Friday. g~ • ?mber 25,1959 JIM fi/SHOP: REPOOTB? Comic Shops for a Boat is about the day that Jack Paar came to Sea Bright, New Jwsey. He had never been to this corner of the Atlantic Ocean, and wouldn't have, except that he found out that-his little girl Randy has been answering all the advertisements about boats, and dad wanted to find out, first hand, how much they cost, how to navigate,'how to buy one, and so forth. Jack and Miriam and Randy drove down and found Sea Bright after onlytwowrongturns. Jack Is my friend, and so Ilevelwith him even when the truth runs contrary to what he wants to hear. Boats cost money. You can get a pretty good-sized one today for $15,000 to $20,000—a sea boat—and insurance will run to $500 a year and upkeep and gasoline to another $1,000. If you have that kind of money, boating can be fun. Idon't spend money on nightclubs or booze, so the money saved Is applied to a 34-foot Richardson. ft is named after Jackie Gleason (Away We Go) and the next one will be named after Paar (Leaky Jack). In the Paar family, you must understand that Mrs. Paar is the solid saint. She is not only good and wholesome and pretty, but she comes from a part of Pennsylvania where they hang onto a nickel until the Indian jumps on the buffalo. This is good because Jack is • man of boyish enthusiasms who' falls to love with huge objects—like a bouse—and wants to buy them at ,-once. Mrs. Paar keeps the books and the money. She is her husband's four-wheel brakes as well as his sweetheart, and If . she permits him to go to that show with more than enough money for: a sandwich and a glass of milk, it is a surprise tome. ' ; Randy, who has one of the most spiritual faces I have ever seen in a child, has already learned how to get to the local stores in Bronxville, New York, and send a gross of power tools to her dad with the words: "Please 1 charge ft,"We loafed around the bouse and Jack was surprised to find that there/is a strip of sand called .Sea Bright where one can haye a house with theocean just 'beyond the front lawn and the Shrewsbury River in the backyard, only 225 feet apart. After lunch, we got in the boat and went down the river and around Sandy Hook Bay and into the Atlantic, ' Mr. P. is fast with intelligent questions. He might have made a pretty good reporter. Suppose an engine dies, what do you do? Suppose both of them conk out? How do you ' call the Coast Guard? What do you say? How can you steer with engines. Instead of the wheel? How many gallons of gasoline per hour? How can I spot a good sea boat from a pretty one with no guts? We covered a lot of ground and had a. lot of fun. Miriam Paar relaxed on the quarter deck with Miss Joan Sullivan. i She didn't want to hear the details because she knew he couldn't buy anything without going into « convincing huddle with her. Randy took the helm, learned to steer a good heading in ten minutes and absorbed everything about fire prevention and other safety measures. .--, . , . The boat got us home in the ' early evening and we went to Bahr's Landing'for dinner. The word got around that Jack Paar was in town andthepeople were standing andsittingaround the outside of Bahr's, waiting for a look. When- he got 'out of his station wagon, I saw all the lips moving. They were saying: "There he is." lack is a gentle person, but he freezes in the company of strangers and, when he saw theline- up. he got between Miriam and Randy and walked, eyes straight ahead, like a'comdemned man who spurns the blindfold. Peggy Bahr gotatablenearthe big window on the river and we ate sea food, and watched the boats move through Highland Bridge. K was a carefree day and Paar went home, more determined than ever to buy a boat. I hope he does. With his ISO television stations, he can do more for good boating than anyone I know. Cue thing .is obvious: he has outgrown the one Miriam put in the bathtuh. . . WASHINGTON SCENE...

At a bull session with 25 of our best politically-trained Senators. tt was obvious the Communist Boss had a high old time with them, particularly when it came to a tilt with Senate Minority Leader Everett McKinley Dirksen. The GOP shepherd asked aboui Moscow's censorship of news dispatches. Khrushchev said he would not permit dispatches "not conducive to peace" and this exchange resulted: Dirksen: "Then you say censorship will continue." Khrushchev: "I would no' :all it censorship."

In Baghdad, the "moment of truth" may be approaching for Iraqi strongman Maj. Gen. Abdel Xarim Kassem. • . Reports from Beirut tell of a new "palace .•evolt" against youthful King Hussein of Jordan. Both have in them the seeds of far-reaching consequences. . . . . Reports of the trouble in Iraq come primarily through the Cairo and t^njjas'cus ridios i>f the United Arab Republic, and'tell of mobs demonstrating in Baghdad and four provincial centers against the executions of 17 anti-Communist lea- lers. The Cairo and Damascus broadcasts aresigni- 'icant because they appear to mark the end of m uneasy truce in the war of words between the Cassem and UAR President Carnal Abdel Nasser ' ut Iraq finally is falling wholly into the hands f the Communists. . . .

The UAR will not be alone in watching the •end of events in Iraq. . The Cairo and Damascus reports say Kassem '9 thinking of reviving the Communist-influenced "popular resistance forces" to deal'with the violence. If he does so, he will have gone far toward meeting demands which Western diplomats last spring said would be the measure of Communist power. Those demands were that he carry out de-"^' sentences passed -by the people's court and that he "arm the people", specifically, the popular resistance, forces. Communism is not involved in the reports' of new troubles for Jordan's King Hussein. In May, in a move to become his own man, Hussein threw out his long-timepremier,-S»mir Rifai, and appointed a man of his own choice ind thinking, Hazza Majali. Both Rifai and Majali were friends of the West, but Rifai was notably anti-Nasser. Hussein lias noved closer to the UAR regime of late, and Sifai and Hussein's autocratic mother, Qdeen 'ein, are said to have joined forces to restore he old order of things.
