Dictionary definition: DlssenU-to differ In sentiment or opinion from the majority, Political satire has been a part of the American intertaln- ment scene from Will Rogers to Bob Hope. Comedy makers from the time of Aristophanes have used those In authority as the butt of their jokes, usually to the glee of those who are governed. But in recent times the tone of the satire has become more strident, the attacks more bitter. They range from the antlestab- llshment humor of The Smothers Brothers Show and "Laugh- In" to the sledge-hammer blows of the off-Broadway play, "MacBlrd." The remarkable aspect of the New Dissent is the availability of mass media. When Harry Belafonte took over the "Tonight" show In place of Johnny Carson tills month, he not only sang calypso songs; he also used the NBC program as a fo- Engogemer.f Announced CHECK THE CLOCK - LESS THAN 24 HOURS AFTER THE FIRE!

Carberry of Columbus, Ohio, to succeed the late Joseph Cardinal Rltter as archbishop of St. Louis, the Vatican announced today. The 63-year-old native of Brooklyn lias been bishop of Columbus since Jan. 16, 1965. Car- dlnal Rltter died last June 10. The archbishop of St. Louis Is traditionally a cardinal, and Bishop Carberry Is expected to be elevated at the Pope's next consistory to create new princes of the church. Nine cardinals have died since the last consistory last; June, and there is speculation ; that the Pope will call another one before Easter, April 14. 'fits*- expected at'the Vatican that by then he will have named a new archbishop of New York to succeed the late Francis Cardinal Spellman and that this prelate also will get his red hat. rum tor his views on Vietnam. In interviewing Dr. Martin Luther King, Belafbnte declared: "All of us here feel very strongly on the war, and we oppose it." The singer added his support of the protest vote for Sen« Eugene McCarthy. No demand for equal time to register opposing views has been reported. Recently Tommy Smothers, who opposes President Johnson both on and off the television screen, was asked about the is« sue of equal time for Democratic loyalists. "We feel the administration's views on Vietnam get plenty oi airing on tele/islon," the comedian replied. "The Bob Hope Show, for example." His argument is that Hope, with his Christmas special based on his entertainment tour of Vietnam, gives wide circulation to the hawkish side of the war. Hope and John Wayne are the most vocal of the show-business hawks; Wayne recently directed and starred in the first major film about the Vietnam war, "The Green Berets."

The first thing to understand is that driving is a skill, and that like all skills - it requires much practice. The heads of many Driver Education programs at schools advise newly-licensed drivers to log hundreds of driving miles under certain controlled conditions. Their recommendations, which parallel the recommendations of safety experts are these: 1. The youngster should be driving a car that's mechanically sound. 2, He should be solo-driving, or driving with his parents, not with a carfullof churns. 3. He should be driving on little traveled roads, 4, He should be driving in daylight, only in fair weather at first. Gradually, as handling a car begins to feel natural to him - and remember, each car handles differently - you'll want him to drive in a variety of situations under your supervision. In .your talks with your children, one point you should try to emphasize most is this; "The car you are driving is our legal and moral responsibility," Even if your youngster has saved enough to pay for a roadworthy car of his own, that car is still your responsibility, This gives you, as parents, indisputable authority to take away driving privileges temporarily when you believe they've been forfeited. You will find that such an understanding with your youngsters should probably work out pretty well, It just seems to take a little patience, the courage and self-discipline to use your parental authority justly,,, and a sturdy sense of humor} Yours sincerely, 2 eorge T, President and General Manager GTF/tah
