YORK (AP) - one of ordeals of ffidern living is ie* telephones Uke many scientific marvels, Started as & mechanical serv* hnt of mart and now has man* lo master and enslave I him. It is letting more and iore difficult to feel grateful to Jexander Graham Bell, When your house is burning Ido-tfn, it Is a great advantage to hive a telephone in it so that you can summon* help from the fire depaf tment. Most of the time, however, your home isn't burning down, and then the telephone becomes more of a nuisance than a bless* ing. •^There was a time in the American past when business was conducted in the office, so* <jiai visits were arranged by mill, and the home was a sanctuary of real privacy. All that has been destroyed by a simple and repetitive sound— "rlng-a'Hng*a*llng." That sound has made man a prisoner in his own castle, It has turned his home into a market, an office, a political forum, a torture chamber where anyone In the world with sense enough to work a forefinger through a dialing system can grab him by the ear and pour a message Into It. Ring-a-ling-a-lingl "A mutual friend has informed us you have a child of school age. Naturally you don't want him to become a drop out, do you?

Ding-a-ling-a-llngl "Friends of the Draft Friendly Hobe Hurley for Dogcatcher Campaign would like to solicit your vote.

We have to catch a 1:59 a.m. train, so we won't keep you up very late." Brring-a-llng-a-lingl "I hate to bother you at home with something 1 know I should have brought up at the office but—. Oh, you were taking a bath? Sorr-ee. Well, go ahead and finish it. Take your time. HI hang up now and call you back in three minutes." Everybody hates to bother you at home, but everybody does. Brr-lngl Brrr-ingI Brrrr- ingl By day and by night the metallic clangor sounds. Many people today yearn to "get away from It all." If they ever do get away from It all, the last thing they'll get away from is the telephone. Even then, stridently calling to bring them back, will be the familiar echo of "Brr-ing, brrr- ing, brrrr-ingl" But Mansfield, a critic of Vietnam war escalation, said in an interview he would oppose any effort to suspend the program for the duration of the Asian conflict. "The trend in foreign aid is in the right direction—downward," he said. "1 believe that it should be cut to bare bones this year. But 1 do not think it can be cut off entirely. That would only be too abrupt," President Johnson's 1968-69 foreign-aid program Includes $420 million in military aid, Last year Congress lopped $1 billion off the President's request, voting only $2,2 billion, lowest in the program's 20-year history, Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho, another Vietnam policy critic, has proposed suspension of all aid to help meet mounting war costs. There are clear Indications of strong opposition to the aid authorization in both houses, but administration leaders feel they can salvage a reduced appropriation. Mansfield said economic aid obviously must be continued In Vietnam, South Korea and friendly Southeast Asian countries, But he said even this must be reduced as a part of a general economy program. By THE ASSOttAtED the wet weather appears to be over for a few days In Arkansas after heavy rains Wednesday sent many small streams climbing out of their banks and causing some concern about the larger rivers due to rapidly rising waters, No major flooding Is expected although some damage is expected In the low-lying areas along the smaller streams, the White River Is two feel above fiotri stage at Calico Rock and still rising steadily as runoff continues to pour into the White River from the mountain streams. At Batesvltle, the White is five feet above flood stage and still rising with an additional rise of one to two feet expected today. The river is expected to overflow from three to five feet from Batesvllle downstream to Clarendon. The Black River is six feet above flood stage at Black Rock and is expected to crest at 22 to 23 feet by Friday or Saturday, On the Arkansas River, Van Buren and Dardanelle were both above flood stage this morning with Ozark and Morrilton near bankful.

The Arkansas Democrat said he had not heard from the White House on the troop-increase re- ; ports. Gen. David M. Shoup, former Marine Corps commandant, appeared before Fulbrlght's committee to say a military victory * in South Vietnam Is Impossible. He submitted a peace plan proposing that: 1. The United States and South Vietnam ask Hanoi to schedule negotiations, with North Vietnam fixing the degree of participation by the National Liberation Front, political arm of the Viet Cong. 2. When the talks start, there would be a halt to U.S.-South Vietnamese offensive operations, with the right reserved to continue observation activities. 3. North Vietnam would not have to halt offensive operations as a condition for talks but refusal to do so would be Interpreted by the United States and South Vietnam as meaning Hanoi is not interested in a peaceful settlement. 4. If North Vietnam did halt its offensives, the talks could proceed with the goal of withdrawing U.S. and other outside combat forces from South Vietnam, Shoup said be submitted this plan last June to then-Secretary of Defense Robert S.

After all, if she had not left that lantern in the .barn, the fire never would have gotten started in the first place. Obviously, in following the chain of cause and effect, it is only fair to cut off responsibility at some point. Even if you do something wrong, the law won't blame you for every single consequence, from here to eternity. But just where is the cutoff point? That is a crucial issue in a great many of the personal injury suits so common in our courtrooms today. To begin with, you are not liable at all if no causal connection can be shown. Suppose you arc driving with an expired driver's license, and a pedestrian steps in front of your car—too suddenly for you to stop. True, you did wrong by driving with an expired license. But that would not make you liable for hitting the pedestrian, since (here was: no causal connection between the two events. Even assuming a causal connection, you are still not liable if your action was not the "proximate" cause of the final harm. What is a proximate cause? Of course, no two cases are identical. But what the law looks for most often is foreseeability. That is, you are usually not held liable if harm was not reasonably foreseeable as a result of your action. On the other hand, if harm was indeed foreseeable, you may be responsible even if the exact form of the harm was not. Pulling away . someone's chair, making a minor bump likely, could lead to liability for a n.ajor injury as well. What if there is an "intervening" cause—some misconduct by a third party, following your own misconduct, and leading to the ucci- dent? Does that intervening cause let you "off the hook"? Often it does.

The Texas Republican/ a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, disagreed with reports the panel has all but decided even before the carrier tests to deny the Navy's request for $350 million to construct 30 Fill Bs. Tower instead said he thinks Uie "committee position is fluid right now." The panel begins today considering the massive Navy procurement request, which includes the proposed F111B authorization, v ; i> Pentagon sources, in predicting earlier that the committee would ditch the plane, said the action could come even before Navy engineers report next month on four contractor proposals to replace the Fll IB. These sources said airborne maneuverability—rather than its ability to take off and land on carriers—is the main problem dogging the FlliB. It reportedly weighs about 80,000 pounds, or about 20,000 more than Navy officials would prefer. Two admirals testified atare- cent hearing that had funds not ifreadf %eM' srM" %n*%e Fll IB, they would recommend development of an entirely different plane. The development of the Fill has been enmeshed in a political hotbed ever since former Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara overruled the military and 'awarded the TFX contract to General Dynamics rather than to Boeing. The first Fill A fleet now is in Thailand, awaiting assignment in Vietnam, Air Force officials generally have praised the plane's performance. The 30 Fll IBs for the Navy would be built by Grumman Corp. at Long Island, N.Y., instead of by General Dynamics of Fort Worth, Texas. General Dynamics built the Air Force model. In the past the Armed Services Committee has attempted to get its bill in shape for floor action by summer, It could thus delay consideration of specific proposals affecting the future of the FlllB for several months.
