Delivered by carrier In city per week - .30 Today In Washington By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) - In the news from Washington: AS YOU WERE: The Army is scrapping its experimental program for rotating battle-group size outfits on six-month tours of duty in Europe. A brief announcement Saturday said the program—called "rota- plan" — was being dropped "be-! cause it generated considerable personal turbulence and did not produce hoped for reduction In the spending of dollars abroad. ''Do the Plans Call for a Living Room and Roof?' Sen. says Jacob Sens. A Thought for Today DARK HORSES?: K. Javits, R-N.Y., Thomas Kuchel of California, Clifford P.

However. Javits said Sunday In a radio-television interview, "it Is most likely it will be Rockefeller or Goldwater, because both are national and international figures, as things stand today." is A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck tip what Is planted.—Eecl. 3:2. -O- -O- -O- -0- Observe a method in the distribution of your time.

" It is obviousQy popular, Is undoubtedly here to stay, and nobody in his right mind is going to knock it. But lovers, PLEASE—not behind the wheel of a moving car In today's traffic. There just has to be a better—and safer- place to neck and nuzzle! But there Is increasing evidence that the driver 's seat replacing the davenport, the park bench and even the movie balcony as a favorite sparking spot. | No one has any figures so far to show how many accidents; have been caused because a driver was smooching instead of steering and wooing instead of watching. But you don't have to be a safety expert to know that high horsepower love can be lethal. Let's forget any bad taste involved and consider the problem from the standpoint of safety alone. Surely no one can seriously believe that a young lover— or even an older one—can keep his mind on traffic when he has at least one arm around a cuddling cutie and is driving cheek to theek. If he can, he just ain't much of a lover! If he can't, he ought to get out of the driver's seat. What to do about the problem? Legislation? Let's face it, you can 't outlaw love. You would have to put a traffic officer in every car and keep him there as a chaperone. For unlike alcohol, romance doesn't show up on the breath in a balloon test or in a traffic spot-check. Seatbelts? Do you think these lovebirds would use 'em— unless someone invents one that will buckle the lovers cozily together? Public opinion and education? Probably the best hope. If only a fraction of these immature exhibitionists could be persuaded that they are inviting death and disaster for themselves and others, and looking cheap and silly as they do it, it would be a big step in the right direction. Or we might pass a law that every driver and passenger must sit in an individual bucket seat. That might just do it! • • • The Easier Way— AS IF THINGS WEREN'T already tough enough these days, " many of us don't even know how to pronounce the names of most of the places and people we read about in the newspapers. And even when we get a clue from a bigtime radio or television commentator, along comes another commentator and gives an entirely different pronunciation. Maybe that's why so many of us are talking more about the current government difficulties in England than about the crises in other lands. Almost everybody knows how to pronounce Christine and Mandy and Ward! PROPAGANDA WAR: Russia and Red China are using the airwaves to step up the war of words over their ideological differences, U.S. officials report, and the Voice of America appears to be a beneficiary of the split in the Communist camp. Officials at the Voice of America, the U.S. government's overseas radio, say the Soviets and Chinese are beaming more short wave propaganda broadcasts at one another while the Soviet bloc has eased its jamming of American transmissions.

Getting anything less than what the groups want may be considered a defeat, calling for more drastic action later.
