Tfie CJgKfe* SiSe^ Dressed for Formal Hearing—Naturally By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) — There is a menhaden fisherman on the Gulf Coast of Louisiana namec Clarence West. I have never met him but I suspect we may be distant cousins. In addition to having the same surname, we share a family trait in the matter of wardrobe selection. Clarence and I have the same conception of what constitutes sartorial elegance. The feeling of, kinship came over me ;this week' as I was reading a report on a hearing held at Lake Charles, La., by a trial examiner for the National Labor Relations Board. The case involved an unfair labor practice complaint and Clarence was one of a group of menhaden fishermen who appeared as witnesses. Deep Impression An NLRB report is not ordinarily the type of document you would turn to for fashion news, but in this instance Clarence's attire obviously made a deep impression on trial examiner George L. Powell. So much so that he included a description of it in his report. "He was dressed," Powell wrote, "in a tuxedo coat and trousers with a pearl pin in the coat lapel. He wore a red tie. His feet were enclosed in brown cowboy boots!" "I can only surmise," Powell added, "that he was told he was to appear in a FORMAL hearing." But of course. What else would a well-dressed menhaden fisherman wear to a formal hearing? If the other witnesses were less appropriately clad it was only because they lacked the traditional West instinct, inherited by Clarence and me, for choosing raiments to match the occasion. Matter Of Taste It's all a matter of taste, actually. You either have it or you don't. I personally decided early in life that if a function called for a tuxedo, I didn't want to go. I would rather be out catching menhaden or something. And I imagine Clarence feels the same way. But if attendance were compulsory, as it was in this case, I like to think that I would show the same inbred flair for correctness of apparel that Clarence exhibited. Offhand, I can't think of any accessories that would complement a tuxedo more than a red tie and brown cowboy boots. Had the hearing been only semi-formal, I'm sure Clarence would have been equally impeccable. A tuxedo with chartreuse tie and Army shoes sounds about right to me. HAPPBfTO YOU* Overtrained MEMPHIS, Tenn. (UPI)— Smokey, a police dog, was trained to protect his master and he did to a perplexing degree Wednesday. Deputy Sheriff J. T. Stone was knocked unconscious when his car swerved into a tree after something went wrong with the steering mechanism. Smokey refused to allow anybody into the car to aid Stone. The stalemate finally was broken when Mrs. Stone arrived and coaxed Smokey into permitting officers to take her husband to a hospital. Admiral Ends Saturday at 5 P.M.

In certain cuts of meat like lamb, pork or veal chops, that means completely severing the little tip which sometimes has several bites of meat. After cutting off all the fat, I slit the chop to the bone, (as one does to stuff them), stuff in the little lean bits of meat, and secure with a toothpick — slant-wise so as not to interfere with cooking. The chop is thicker, and there is absolutely no waste. Mrs. Roy C. Jeflebower Dear Heloise: I have read many hints in your column regarding rolling pins... I have another. At my bridal shower, I was given a rolling pin which had been autographed (with a ballpoint pen) by all guests present. It was later varnished and presented to me. I will always cherish it as a lovely remembrance of that happy day! Mrs. Jan Scaminaci Dear Heloise: I was making a burlap tote bag and going crazy trying to handle the curved seams. My husband suggested taping the edges of the burlap with mending tape, and it worked beautifully. . . No fraying of the fabric or my nerves! Pati Dear Heloise: Here is a hint for mothers when washing baby's booties or small stockings: I keep a box of safety pins next to the bassinet, and when I undress baby, I take the socks or booties and pin them together at the toe, then pin them to the baby's kimona, blanket or terry outfit. It may seem a little troublesome at first to pin the stockings in this way, but when you think of the time saved in trying to find those little objects after washing, I think it is well worth a few extra seconds. Karen Dear Heloise: I dreaded having to take down my perfectly clean drapes for pressing after my little angel crumpled a few spots while looking out the window. I wrapped a small magazine in a heavy towel, held it be- • Firestone Tiret • Seat Coven \ • Brake Service 1 • Engine Tune-up • Wheel Alignment • Wheel Balancing • Lubrication • Battery Service • Philco Radios • Philco Televisions 225 E.

F. K. Copyright, 1965, King Features Syndicate, Inc. '! President At Rites For Friend WINDER, Ga. (UPI) —President Johnson, obviously saddened and saying .little, flew into the rolling north Georgia hill country Wednesday to pay his last respects to a friend. The President, tight - lipped and solemn, came to this textile town to attend the funeral of Judge Robert Russell of the Georgia court .of .appeals, described by Johnson as "a fine and able young man." Interrupting a full schedule for his three-hour trip into Georgia, the President consoled Russell's relatives and friends following • graveside ceremonies and visited the widow at her home. Russell, 40, a nephew of Sen. Richard Russell, D-Ga., died of cancer Monday at the National Institute of Health in Washington, where the President had insisted he be treated. The largest crowd, here, estimated at about 300, gathered outside the red brick First Baptist Church before the President arrived by helicopter and motorcade from nearby Athens, where his Jetstar landed. . Russell and Johnson were longtime friends and during the J1964 presidential campaign the President frequently called the young judge on the telephone. They had deer-hunted together as recently as last November. POLICE CHIEFS MEET TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (UPI) —N.

Evansville was picked as site of next year's conclave. of S6viet Top Brass Rumored By HENRY SHAPIRO MOSCOW (UPI) — Moscow's diplomatic colony 1 is speculating again whether the Kremlin is planning a shift of its top rulers, including, party chief Leonid I. Brezhnev, Premier Alexei N. Kosygin and President Anastas I. Mikoyan. There is no reliable evidence to support persistent rumors from abroad that a reshuffle of the Soviet leadership is imminent, 'but the guessing game nevertheless revolves around" the following possible decisions. —Mikoyan will retire sometime this year and his place as chief of state will be taken by former President Brezhnev. But Mikoyan will remain a member of the Communist party's all- powerful Presidium. —Alexander Shelepin, .vice Rely on our Rexall Pharmacist for prompt, indi-.' vidual service.

VISITS ETHIOPIA ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (UPI) — Indonesian Foreign Minister Subandrio arrived here Wednesday from Cairo for a 24-hour visit and talks with Emperor Haile Selassie on Afro- Asian unity. There is no incontestable evidence to support the speculation of impending changes in the upper Kremlin hierarchy. .'. The , collective leadership which succeeded fallen Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev appears to be working 'harmoniously. JVp serious disagreement on basic policy- has been reported. There is a clear division of authority between the party and government, headed respectively by Brezhnev and Kosygin. And no single member of the 12 - man Presidium appears to be forming alliances and maneuvering for supreme power. Shouldn't an extension phone be there? A kitchen telephone ia endlessly convenient.
