Second Class Postage pate) at Mt. Mt. Vernon, lllinoi* People In The News By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON (API—Prince Charles nnd Princess Anne, accompanied by a detective, saw the movie "Cleopatra" Tuesday night. A detective always accompanies (he royal children in public, but his presence in the theater served a double purpose. "Cleopatra" has an "A" — for adult — certificate in Britain, meaning that children under 16 can be admitted only when accompanied by an adult. Charles is 14. Anne is 32. Gift Horse?

Editorial The Midas Touch In Its Heyday ARE YOU A MILLIONAIRE? " No? Then get with it, boy! What do you want to be, a freak or something? It has just been announced that America is producing millionaires at the fastest clip since the fabulous '20s and that there are now at least 100,000 of them running around loose in this country as proof that you just can't keep a good man down, and nuts to taxes and the tariff. Now this no doubt is good for the national economy. Certainly it is nice for the millionaires involved, and it just has to be encouraging to aspiring millionaires. But what's it going to do to the few of us laggards who still haven't made our first million? How are we going to explain to You Know Whom that there ean be no new fall wardrobe for her because things are so tough these days that iff Impossible for anyone, but anyone, to put away a dime? Is she going to buy this with love in her heart when she knows that 100,000 other women were smart enough to pick out men who were smart enough to make it big? What burns us nonmillionaires is that if these guys are Bmart enough to make a million, why aren't they smart enough to keep it to themselves instead of making a big, fat thing out of it? You wonder how 100,000 characters with no more judgment than that can be so lucky when the real geniuses have to keep on struggling? One hundred thousand of them. Wow! + + * TOKYO (AP)—Prime Minister Abdirashid Ali Shermarkc of the Republic of Somalia arrived in Peking for a state visit, the New China News Agency reported. The prime minister was quoted as telling welcomers that Somalia and Communist China became brothers during the period of European colonial rule.

Polishing and fitting together the pieces of the tax cut and revision legislation, the committee Tuesday spelled out a provision to give special consideration to a taxpayer whose income shoots up in one year more than a third above his average for the previous four years. Now, such an increase would put the taxpayer in a substantially higher bracket. SIU RECOMMENDS THESE BOOKS i Here's How To "Stretch" Your Mind In Dog Days U.S.-HUNGARY: U.S. and Hungarian officials are conferring in Budapest on problems blocking normal diplomatic relations between the United States and that Communist country. The two nations have exchanged only token diplomatic representation since Soviet tanks crushed Hungary's 1956 revolt. Richard I. Phillips, State Department press officer, acknowledged Tuesday the talks are under way but said "it would not be helpful" to discuss them publicly. PUBLIC DEFENDER: The Senate has approved a bill to provide paid consel for defendants in federal criminal cases who are unable to pay for their own defense. The bill, urged by President Kennedy and Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, now goes to the House. The Senate has passed public defender bills in previous Congresses only to have them die in the House. Want to "stretch" your mind during the dog-days of summer? Southern Illinois University has prepared a list of books which it is recommending to incoming freshmen, to help them adjust to the intellectual demands of the university curriculum, but the "thinking adult" who has not yet read them could find them a broadening experience, according to Elizabeth O. Stone, assistant director of the SIU library. Miss Stone has sent the book list, compiled by a committee from the English department faculty, to the 85 public libraries of Southern Illinois, inviting their cooperation in urging prospective freshmen to read as many as possible. "No book is an absolute must, but all are worthwhile," she said. "No student can expect to do well in college if he doesn't like to read. All these books are intended to stimulate individual curiosity and intellectual development." The list follows Robert Frost, "In the Clearing"; William Golding, "The Lord of the Flies"; John F. Kennedy, "Profiles in Courage"; Joseph Wood Krutch, "The Great Chain of Life"; Harper Lee, "To Kill a Mockingbird"; John Stuart Mills, "Essays"; John Henry Newman, 'The Idea of a University"; Plato, "Dialogues." Reynolds Price, "A Long and Happy Life"; J. D. Salinger, "The Catcher in the Rye"; John Steinbeck, "The Grapes of I Wrath"; Henry David ThoreaU, "Walden"; James Thurber, "My Life and Hard Times"; Thor- steln Veblen, "Theory of the {Leisure Class"; Theodore White, "The Making of a President: ll &aOi" . W. H. Whitehead, "The Aim* |of Education"; Walt Whitman, "Leaves of Grass"; W. H. Whyte, Jr., "The Organization Man"; Thornton Wilder, "Our |Town", and Thomas Wolfe, "Look Homeward, Angel."

An important new highway was opened—a long-awaited link fital to heavy traffic. And what happened? Was the mayor on hand with unsheathed scissors to snip a ribbon ? He was not. Did the governor herald another forward step in the march of progress? He did not, for the simple reason he was nowhere around. Did the driver of the first car to go through receive a gold- plated driver's license? He did not. Well, what did happen? A workman moved aside a wooden barricade and the traffic started rolling. What will they think of next?

"Now that amounts to a premium of $6.90 a month on a straight life. That's what ^ou wanted, wasn't it?" he asked. "Well." came the wistful reply, "Could I fool around a little on Saturday nights?"
