D.O.P.O. ranks swelling Want to be president? Here's your big chance By RUTH SNOW O'ROURKE Shift into your left mind. No one in bis right mind would have anything to do with this idiocy! A few days ago an article appeared in the Daily Facts about the characteristic dress appearing on the citizenry in certain areas such as Palm Springs, Newport-Balboa, Redlands, etc. The latter portion of the article contained some very erudite information for the pixilated. It also printed a membership application for anyone yearning to join the Distinguished Order of Peacock Observers. "A Peacock Observer is any character who, with or without binoculars or bi-focals, can spot the origin of any passing Pce- pul Peacock by his "plumage", stated the article. It went on to furthur define a Peepul Peacock, as "just a dressed up or down ordinary 'peepul' ". The gist was that in this bright gay plaza and playa full world.of Southern California the woods and yacht clubs and tennis courts and super markets are loaded a discerning lot of retired and not-retired Peacock Observers and it's time we were organized. How right we were! Applications flooded in on us like a snowball, gathering girth as it rolls down hill, the mail is mounting eggcup high on our desk. It is becoming apparent that D.O.P.O., if it survives, will have more Presidents in 1964 than either the Republicans or the Democrats. In fact, we'll be inundated with Presidents since D.O.P.O. has no members. . . just PRESIDENTS. Some of the reasons given for wanting to become a President of the Distinguished Organization of Peacock Observers, substantiate the theory that if you build a better nuthouse, the better nuts will want to move in. Reasons as they appeared on a meagre few of the vast collection of applications: I "My neighbor gave me her application so find enclosed one self-addressed stamped envelope [with two applications for D.O. P.O. One is for me and one is jfor my bird dog." "Hunter Pidgeon" "Since they're for free, I'll take one of the D.O.P.O. presi Special Offer (Reprinted by popular demand.)

"Hanging around my neck all my life have been two stones, one that I've never been a President of anything. The other that everyone considers me a dope. Now I can knock off two stones with one bird." J.A.Y. "Being an attractive bachelor girl I'm a natural for associat- |ing with Peacock Observers.

Irma La Pooch Witness tells of Gypsies fight against Gestapo FR.'WKFURT, Germany - (UPD—A former inmate said today thousands of Gypsies battled Gestapo guards drivmg them into the mass gas chambers of Auschwitz "but in the end they all died." Hermann Diamanski testified at the trial of 21 ex-Nazi officials and a turncoat inmate charged with participating In the murders of up to four million persons at the infamous death camp in Poland during World War II. , His voice trembled with cmo- [tion as he told how the Gypsies fought with knives, razor blades and their fists against I Gestapo guards armed with [submachine guns and other weapons. "The Gypsies screamed all night — it was awful," he told the court. "Unlike the Jews, the Gypsies fought. They sold Uieir lives dearly. "Tlic Jews would sing death songs as they entered the gas chambers but the Gypsies battled." Wilhclm Roger, 57, accused master torturer of Auschwitz, glared angrily when Diamanski described his part in the liquidation of the Gypsies. He said Roger was driving Gypsy women to the gas chambers when a half-Jewish woman once married to a Luftwaffe (air force) ace named Novotny "walked up.. .and yelled in his face, expressing her disgust.." "Soger shot her down," Dia­ manski said. "He also killed another woman—" Asked by the judge if he had any comment. Soger snapped erect, cheked his heels in military fashion and said: "The witness must be wrong." Clem to head schools group Grovcr H.
