10-Monday, Mar. 9, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts Miss Wilkins' says . .. "G/>/s - - clean up, comb up" By GAY PAULEY UPl Women's Editor KEW YORK (UPI) — The woman designer who won a top fashion award for changing the image of American bobby-soxers now hopes to reform the beatniks. She believes the presence in the White House of the two beautifully groomed and gracious Johnson girls will help her cause nationally. "It is nice," said Emily Wilkens, "to have someone who projects a ladylike image." "Clean up, comb up, but don't over-pamt up" might well be Miss Wilkens' slogan in her campaign to get today's teenaged girls more aware of what good appearance means in class room and career. "Ninety per cent of good grooming is cleanliness," said Miss Wilkens. "CTean body, clean dothes, clean hair. I sometimes think the youth of today would solve most of its problems if it just washed." "The bow shouldn't be larger than the package," she said of today's teen-aged girls penchant for teasing hairdos into haystacks. "A big bouffant just overwhelms the girl." And," she added in criticism of the heavy makeup she finds far too many girls applying Cleopatra does not belong in the classroom or office." Miss Wilkens, a beauty with red-gold hair and brown eyes, qualifies as critic of and adviser on grooming in her role as au tfaor of a book on the subject and as member of the faculty and honorary director of the Fashion Institute of Technology. She also qualifies because she has two children in the age area she's trying to reach — Hugh, who's 14, and Jane, 12. And she qualifies because of her many years of designing ctothes for growing girls. Her book is "Here's Looking At You" (Putnam), first published in 1950 and now coming out in revised version. At the fashion institute, a two- year New York state college, she teaches a 10-week course which includes health care, diet, figure improvement and exercises, makeup, skin and hair PLASTERED PORKERS MONTGOMERY, Ala. (UPI) —State investigators Thursday announced the capture of an 18- member pig rustling gang whose method of operation was to feed the porkers bread soaked in com liquor and haul them away when they passed out care, voice, manners and wardrobe. Each girl takes a "before" picture and starts a glamour notebook which Miss Wilkens suggests she will find useful the rest of her life for filing health, beauty and wardrobe hints. Each girl also gets an "after picture at the end of the course. But Miss Wilkens said there is more to be stressed than the external. It is the "total girl," who sure of her appearance, gains new poise and confidence —the disciplined body leads to the disciplined mind. She quoted a letter from a former student who wrote, "Thank you for the how to — that made me want to." L6C8d [ng chuf ist drops to death in Australia ADELAIDE, Australia (UPI) —Donald West, one of Australia's leading sports parachutists, phmged 12,500 feet to his death Sunday while taking part in a world record attempt in baton passing. West, 29, had made more than 200 jumps and had repre sented Australia in the world parachuting championships in Masaachusetts m 19fi2. West plunged to the earth at more than 120 miles per hour, passing and receiving a baton from other jumpers six times, which equalled the world rec ord. But his main chute failed to open and his reserve chute opened too late — only 500 feet from the ground. Other jumpers said another 200 feet would have saved his life.

Western Auto By PHILNEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst Notes from the foreign news cables: Toogh Policy: A new American "get tough policy against communism in Asia seems to be in the cards in the ne.\t few months. Such a move stems from the alarming Red gains in South Viet Nam and Laos, and a determination to stop them. Diplomatic ob scr^•e^s in Tokyo look for a number of moves to bring this about—stepped-up military aid for South Viet Nam, the neutralist government of Laos, and for India, as well as some stem warnings to Red China that the United States intends to hold fast at all points in Asia where the Reds have been exerting pressure. Allied Patrols: Western Allied officials are keepmg a close watch on their East Berlin military patrols. A Communist propaganda cam paign denouncing these motorized patrols for allegedly violating traffic rules and endangering East Berlin lives has caused some fears the East Germans might try to halt them. In recent weeks, the Reds have stepped up their harassments of the patrols. The latest incident came last week when Communist police halted a U.S. Army patrol car in East Berlin and held it for 45 minutes. The Reds said the car was held up for speeding and U other traffic violations. West- em sources said these were Communist lies. De Gaulle Shakeup: Reports in Paris say President Charles de Gaulle may shake up his government when he returns from his state visit to Mexico later this month. The ministry for refugees may be scrapped, and the mmlsters ot industry, cooperation with Africa, scientific research and construction shifted to other jobs. There will be no changes in the main cabinet posts. SEATO Changes: The word is that the Philippines probably will renew its call to put more teeth into the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) at the 10th anniversary meeting of the group in Jlanila next month. Recurrent crises in Laos and Viet Nam, and growing tension in Borneo where Malaysia and Indonesia have rival claims, are seen as evidence of SEATO's limitations in preserving regional security. British Elections: The British elections may be put off until next October. The Conservative government of Prime Jlinister Sir Alec Douglas-Home is expected to bring in a tough budget by the middle of next month because oi the strains on the country's economy. Earlier expectation of tax relief as a vofc-cafching boost for the Conservatives has been written off. In fact, the government may even tighten fhe tax screw. Political sources say this probably would induce the election postponement from a tentative date in June to the Johnson's mate selection a problem By Lyle C. Wilsoo The process quietly continues of painting President Johnson into a dangerous political comer on the choice of his 1964 vice presidential running mate. It could continue tomorrow in New Hampshire's presidential primary voting. Democratic Gov. John King of New Hampshire is reported to be fostering a New Hampshire write -in campaign for a Johnson- Bobby Kennedy ticket. The Gallup Poll reported last week that Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy was top choice among rank and file Democrats, nationwide, for the vice presidential nomination. Kennedy had a 37 per cent preference, up from 34 per cent m January. Second was Adlai E. Stevenson at 25 per cent, down one percentage point since January. Sen. Hubert Humphrey D Minn., scored 13 .and 14 per cent. Half a dozen others were nowhere. It was notable that Kennedy's score was up, where as Stevenson, Humphrey and most of the others were down since Januar>-. Ready to Flame The Gallup Poll offers ample evidence that the Democratic rank and file outside the South is a tinderbox of Bobby Kennedy sentiment. A big New Hampshire write-in vote could spark it afire. That would be the end of any choice Johnson might hope to have in selection of his vice presidential associate. It would be the end, that is, unless Kennedy announced he would not accept the nomination if it were offered. Kennedy might do that. His Justice Department spokesman last week repudiated Gov. King's write-in program. The spokesman said Kennedy thought the choice of a vice presidential nominee should be left to Johnson and the Dempcratic national convention. This was not a repudiation in sharp language calcu lated to compel King abmptly to call off the vvTite -in project. Perhaps it merely was a matter of form instead of substance. The Kennedy name has most or aU of the emotional appeal that used to attach to Roosevelt. It there were a popular clamor for Keimedy as the vice presidential nominee, Johnson just about would be compelled to take him. Else the President would risk offending Kennedy Democrats, especially in the great northern. Eastern and western cities. Effect on South But what would be the effect of Kennedy's nomination in the South? The attorney general personifies to southemers the use of federal force to compel acceptance of civil rights proposals which the southerners bitterly resent. Kennedy on the ticket could cost Johnson the electoral votes of some or all of the southern states. As the situation is developing, however, Johnson may have no choice. He dare not offend the Kennedys and their political following. Neither would Johnson happily abandon southern electoral votes to the Republicans or to a state's rights ticket. The pending civil rights legislation probably will have been enacted by the time the Democratic National Convention meets in late August. Its fair employment and public accommodations sections are angrily opposed by southem legislators. President Johnson is committed to those propositions. Their enactment into law might deprive Johnson of southem votes with or without Kennedy. K the President should agree to a compromise which would eliminate or wither those sections he might hold the South but face trouble in the great cities of the North, East and West. At that point, Johnson would need Kennedy on the ticket to hold the city votes. Politics is mighty confusin". Nasser's attacks continue in Yemen By WmiAItf S. WHITE fall June is considered the ear-JAbdurraman Ben Yahya of Ye- hest practicable date, with Oc -Len. who is in the United WASHINGTON — A forgotten war, a 17-months-old war of aggression, still goes on against the ragged, barefoot little kingdom of Yemen in the Middle East The invading forces of Nasser Egj-pt, supplied with Soviet- made tanks and bombers against the rifles and machine guns of the Yemeni royalists are larger now than 10 months ago when Egypt agreed to United Nations-inspected "dis engagement" that is no disen gagement at all. Indeed, the United Nations observation mission in Yemen has just conceded that in the single brief period Jan. 3-Feb. 18 Egypt increased its forces by 1,000 to 2,000 men.

Difficulty with his sfuds EPPING England (UPI)—Arthur Hughes, on a world cruise aboard the liner Maretania, lost his front collar stud when his dress shirt went to the ship's laundry.

One million of his countrymen, he adds, are now living in caves for shelter from Nasser bombers sent by the Soviet Union. Yemen's ahready pitiably small supply of arms is running out. for reinforcements from Saudi Arabia are obstructed under the U.S. "cease-fire. Rarely has an emissary come to this country in so hopeless a state of affairs. The royal Yemen government is no longer, recognized, either here or m the United Nations. The so called democratic revolution which dislodged it — with the massive help of Egyptian mill tary forces — was granted, during the Kennedy Administration, an American recognition which necessarily is now maintained. The Prince, therefore, has no official status here; there is no one to whom — officially — he can put his case. ^Vhat he hopes for, nevertheless, is some indirect assistance for Yemen, by which he really means some decision by Washington to put pressure on Nasser to cease his attacks. arrange to withdraw his forces, he has increased them instead. Monarchial governments — even such a pathetic littie tribal "monarch" as was involved in Yemen — are not popular any more. Anybody who comes along with the claim that he represents a "forward - looking" reform to get rid of such old-fashioned arrangements is automatically looked upon with favor. Royalty has a hard time getting a hearing, as the royal regime in Yemen did in this instance. It is, at all events, not too late to examme this case example of how sincere Western advocates of free government in the State Department are taken in by phony revolutions pumped up as movements for "freedom and independence" by the foreign agents or collaborators of Moscow. A bit more reserve before we granted recognition so many months ago would have changed the whole picture. Nasser might now be back in Egypt instead of beating down the tribesmen of Yemen, crying slogans that everybody must be "forward- looking" while Soviet weapons are driving a helpless, ignorant and hopeless people much farther from real freedom than they had ever been before. How the United States could now reverse itself is not easy to see, for the water of much irrevocable history bas flowed under the bridge since this country bought the view that the "revoluti'on" against the Yemen royal regime was what it was presented to be — an honest, local uprising to procure a more democratic society. What was not understood then was that the "revotation" was in fact a Nasser export. ^Vhat is now crystal plain is that though American recognition was granted to the new regime For the truth is that within six days of the outbreak of what was advertised as an authentic, home-grown revolt against the Yemen royal government by Democratic forces, Egyptian troops were on Yemen's soil. They had to come by sea — and six days is the minimum time in which to mount such an amphibious operation from Egypt. If this did not show whose "revolution" this really was, what did it show? Finally, we could usefully look back a bit farther tiian aU tiiis. We could look back to 1956, when this nation joined the Soviet Union in the United Nations in condemning as an "aggression" against Nasser Egypt th« attack made in actual self- defense by the British, the French and the Israelis to try to strike Nasser's throtUing handsfrom their lifeline, the Suez CanaL When Nasser Egypt atUcks somebody, it is never aggression under the peculiar definitions of tiie U.N.
