THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS HAPTI DICTATOR HAS MADE PLENTY WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1963 God Hates Ugly" Maybe, But Papa Doc Survives By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP)-In Loulsl ana there's an old saying: "God hates ugly." It means you'll get yours in time, if you're a heel or you hurt people. Yet Francois (Papa Doc) Duvalier, who isn't pretty, is still Haiti's dictator. But time is running out. He's had trouble a-plenty. He's made plenty. Monday before dawn about 500 exiled Baitian officers and soldiers reportedly landed and started an invasion of this island which Calumbus liked. If this flops, Duvalier can ex-' pect something else. His opposition within Haiti has been chopped to pieces by mass arrests, exile, murder, and political blackmail. He's too hated to sleep well. Last month young rebels fought his regime in the mountains until they were crushed. He had a crisis in April with an army plot aganst him. It failed. But his army suffered. Top officers fled. He doesn't trust his army, about 5,000 men trained mainly in police work. He has his own militia, the dreaded Ton-Ton Ma coutes (Creole for bogeymen). He had a crisis with the United States too. He was elected in 1957, supposedly for seven years, not because he was loved but because Haiti's Negro masses had to choose between Duvalier, a Negro, and his opponent, a mulatto. The bitterness between Negroes, mostly illiterate, and the better-educated mulattoes goes back almost to the 'beginning of the country. But when his term was up May 15, he decided to stay a few years more. He claimed that an election two years ago legally extended his rule. This country was self- conscious anyway for having supported this dictator, the worst in ROOFING SIDING INSULATION DIAL 242-0805 Aluminum Storm Windows, Doors and Awnings. FREE ESTIMATES NEAL BROS.

Then, even though the State Department said he had imposed a reign of terror, it resumed relations with him June 3. But Duvalier pulled Uncle Sam's whiskers, a popular tactic in Haiti which remembers that U.S. Ma-, rines occupied the country from! 1915 to 1934. Duvalier demanded that Ambassador Raymond L. Thurston be withdrawn. The United States withdrew him. Duvalier had had trouble with, the United States before that, Last March he threw out Marine Col. Robert Heinl, former boss of the U.S. military mission in Haiti. Helnl angered Duvalier a year ago by writing a letter—which leaked out—to army chief of staff Col. Jean Rene Bouclcaut. Heinl allegedly deplored Duvalier's downgrading of the regular army in favor of a civilian militia and demanded that the militia be dissolve. It wasn't. Duvalier began a purge that ousted or exiled almost all his pro-U.S. officers, who could have led a move to overthrow him. He, got even tougher. He ordered the U.S. Navy and Air Force missions to leave Haiti. The last left July 26. Remaining in Port au Prince are only the U.S. military attache,!

THE LOSS LEADERS " By Steve April At first Jack thought she stood out among the Impatient women milling about the COMPLAINT window because she wasn't holding a package to return. But on second glance he knew she stood out because she was young, tall, the grace ful figure; exciting face framed oy dark hair. Leaving his desk, Jack told the window clerk, "Give you a hand." Then, smiling at the tall girl he asked, "Something wrong?' "The store advertised a $75 portable typewriter for $25. I traveled more than 50 miles, was pushed and mauled reaching the counter—only to be told all the machines are sold! Can I buy the one in the win dow?" "That's a sample and it's a store rule never to sell sam pies." "But I need a typewriter, came all the way in from Shady Harbor!" "Sorry, rules are rules," Jack said sadly, knowing she was lying. He hated people small enough to become liars for the sake of a bargain. "Whole thing's a gyp! You dangle a few bargains merely to get the people into the store,like sheep,and then..!" "Correct," he said coldly, "but it isn't a gyp. It's smart merchandising. These items are loss leaders. It pays us to sell them foi a lost because people will come in and buy other items, once they're in the store. And Miss, next time you dream up a corny sob story, pick some other town, Shady Harbor is charming be cause it's so small everybody knows each other. Vou see, I live there!" As she turned away, Jack had a brief glimpse of her t flushed face, bright and angry eyes, the heavy red lips open as if she'd been slapped. For the rest of the afternoon Jack couldn't forget her. It annoyed him that she had cheapened herself to buy a typewriter. But then, he'd seen shop-lifters who'd looked like debutantes. • • • At 6 p.m. Jack punched out, made his usual wild dash to the station, caught the 6:15 with less than a second to spare as usual. He sat next to Dave London, an ad man who commuted daily from the Har- 1 bor. They talked about outboards and fishing, but the ;irl's angry face remained in ack 'a mind. Finally, he told Dave, "A tall girl with dark; hair and a wonderful face came into the store, claimed she'd come all the way from the Harbor to buy a sale type writer. Got me steamed, lying over a ..." "Good figure, hot looking?" Dave cut in. Jack nodded, went pale as he asked, "She really lives in the Harbor?" "Name's Alice Coles, a writ er. Rented one of Mrs. Maltz's rooms last night. My wife men tioned it." Reaching the Harbor, Jack headed for his house and there was Alice, sitting on the steps Before he could stammer an apology, she snapped, "I'm only here to prove I don't lie, you junior stuffed shirt!" "Really, I'm terribly sorry for " "The liar is that phony store you work for! Loss leaders! I bet they never had a single machine on sale!" "Three typewriters were for sale," Jack began, but Alice walked away. "Alice!" She stopped. "How did you know my name, Jack?" "Never mind! Look, I have a typewriter you can borrow. Minute we have another sale, I'll put one aside for you." • • • "Well," Alice hesitated. "My old machine was broken in moving and I have a deadline ... Thank you, Jack." She ex* tended her hand. He mumbled, "Wait right here. I'll get the type..." And holding her hand he added, "I suddenly feel so . . . so . . . tender!" "Sounds silly," Alice said, "but a delicious glow actually WATCHING TV "Loss leaders are smart merchandising." went through me. As if I'll never feel quite this happy— again!" Of course, they didn't realize they had both felt Nature's loss leader, that tremendous, emotional peak reached only once in a lifetime when THE two people made for each other meet, get ready for the biggest bargain of their lives— themselves! j (The End) jjjg TONK>HT 6:00—News 2-4-5-6-12, Cartooni 3, Thlj World 8, Three Stoogtt It. oil5-Newi 2-4-5-6-12, Reeky and Hit Frlendi 11. 6i30—Wagon Train 2-3, CBS Reporti 4-12, Tht-.

He took one look, knelt quickly and tested the fallen man's wrist as a voice in the next room said, "Call a doctor." "No need for a doctor," said Perry. 'Print it," called the director, using the motion picture phrase indicating mat no re-takes would be necessary. That's the merry murderous way things go as "Perry Mason" starts its seventh—and probably last—season on CBS. After years during which cast and behind-the-scenes personnel have remained pretty much intact, the operation runs like the proverbial watch. More often than not, regulars Ramond Burr, William Tallman, Barbara Hale and William Hopper go through rehearsals and then the scene is filmed, just once. Producer Gall Patrick Jackson, once a film star herself, is sorry that prospects for another season are dim. But she is more con cerned that CBS has pushed the show back an hour on Thursday to 9 p.m, Last season the show did quite well starting at 8 p.m., which gave it a haUVhoUrfs jump onj NBC's popular "Dr. Kildare." A lot of viewers, including this one, soon learned that it was pretty easy to watch the whole legal show on CBS and then switch over for the last half of "Kildare." The medical plot lines could be picked up and the cldmax was easily un derstood. Come fall," however, Mason starts half way through Kildare, And if six years experience watch' ing Mason is a qualification, 1 would say that it would be almost impossible to start watching at its half way point. Its plots are tightly knit, usually very complicated and involve a number of characters. Sometimes the viewer can lose the thread of an episode by merely leaving his set for a drink of water. Waiting In the wings is another based on his books about Donald Lam and Bertha Cool, private eyes. Civil Rights Bill Lacks Majority WASHINGTON (AP)—A survey made for the Senate leadership shows that only 55 senators—12 short of the necessary two-thirds— would vote now to end any Southern filibuster against President Kennedy's civil rights bill, the Washington Post reported today. Staff writer Robert Albright wrote that substantial modification of the key public accomoda tions section may be necessary to win additional support from Republicans and border state Democrats.
