IN FULL ttllETOittCAL FLIGHT, the vSetiatc's master of mellifluence presided at a Washington luncheon honor* ing The World Almanac. Sen, Everett Dirkscn hosted the Capitol affair for members of Congress and the press marking the centennial celebration of the world-famed reference work, Byrd to Help Pay Tribute to Lincoln By SID HURLBURT> Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - At least one Southern Democrat in the Senate will join Republicans today in honoring the birthday anniversary of Abraham Lincoln, GOP patron saint and Civil War president. Amid preparations for "Lincoln Day" observances around the nation, traditional occasion tor speech-making and campaign fund-raising efforts by Republican politicians, Sen. Harry F. Byrd Jr., D-Va. ( said of Lincoln: "He was one of our great presidents." Byrd said Northerners shouldn't be surprised that a Southerner such as himself thinks highly of Lincoln, born 159 years ago. He noted Lincoln's declaration of "malice toward none and charity toward all." "Had he lived," said the senator In an Interview, "the plight of the South would have been much less severe." ,. a,,.,./ Visitors to his Senate office find a portrait of Lincoln In a •prominent position on Byrd's desk, emblazoned on the front of his leather-covered appointment book. "I'm a great admirer of Lincoln," he said. "When 1 see one like this in a stationery store, I buy it." One of Byrd's hobbles Is history, and much of his reading has been concerned with Lincoln and his time, the senator said. "What was perhaps our most tragic era—tragic because of this war which was a fight within the family, so to speak— produced two of the greatest leaders we have had: Lincoln and Rober E. Lee." Byrd, a newspaper publisher and former editor, said he ad« mires Lincoln not only as a strong and compassionate leader but also as a literary flgure. "His ability to write with such conciseness impressed me greatly," he said. "So many of his remarks had such common sense to them." Byrd, whose family has roots deep In Virginia history, said he finds no embarrassment in being an admirer of the Civil War president. Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy, much of the state was ravaged by the war and the final surrender of Southern forces was at Appomattox Court House, Va. But, Byrd noted, Lincoln also had roots in Virginia. His father was' from the ShenandoaH Valley, not far from Byrd's home.

Beat Profession^ Actors Invade High Schools: Equity league has approved experimental project in Santa Barbara, Calif. Combines pro-talent with students and community amateur actors. A first for high schools. Program so far has been limited to college campuses. Students raised all production money themselves (a must as school authorities insisted program could not be budgeted). The "net" is estimated at $7,000 plus a $5,000 bond with equity. Expenses to be met from box office receipts. Eight performances are scheduled in late January. Good concept if the actors can and will really work at their leadership-tutorship roles. Pig Wheels: Though some new stars prefer to rent '«' ride Vat/ier than own their own autos, one long-time javorite has a car to end all. It's Elvis Presley's "Gold Car." A splendiferous creation painted with 40 coats of translucent diamond dust paint, two telephones, a r e c o r d player, portable television and a stereo tape machine. The Gold Car does more than look like something out of a car crofter's imagination. It goes on t o u r for sweet charity. Already it has toured tlie U.S. and is now in Australia. The money goes to the National Benevolent Society. Junior Miss Competition Moving Along: Winners being chosen now, Seventy thousand entered in 1,200 communities. Finalists will share in pot of $350,000, mainly scholarships. Eleventh year of pageant. Finals in Mobile, Ala., March 7-15, VIET CONG DRAFTS 13 YEAR OLDS: U. S.

Talks in terms of "one to two years the allies will gain upper hand" in the delta. The timetable has a familiar sound. Comes the Pawn; In U>s Angeles a small, courageous group of teens meet twice weekly under the guidance of two University High School teachers. Topic? Similar to A.A.—only the devil is drugs. These teens share their unfortunate experiences with drugs in a gutsy soul-baring way. The purpose is to help themselves and each other. The only rules are to attend meetings and to stay clean.
