J to By PULTON LEWIS, Jfk WASMINOTON-A tttorIda Coft- gressman Js getting nowhere fast in his one-fran campaign to eft* act legislation that would combat massive vote fraud. Tampa'a Bill Cramef, whose research shows that upwards of one million votes are stolen each Presidential year, has introduced legislation that would permit the Civil Rights Commission to investigate all vote fraud cases. Presently the commission is limited to investigation of minority group complaints only. Cramer's bill was assigned to the HOUse Judiciary Committee, where Chairman Emanuel Celler,, Brooklyn Democrat, hopes to keep it bottled up. Other big city Democrats, often loud in their Advocacy of civil rights, have in* dicated they hopefully expect the bill to die in Committee. WHAT COULD the Civil flights Commission investigate if Cramer's bill were passed? The peculiar situation In Baker County, Georgia, for instate; whete 152 per cent of eligible white voters are registered to vote. Similar situations exist throughout the 1 Peach State. In Union County offici &r figures show' there are 3,95? white residents of Voting age. A grand total of 5,662 are carried on the voting rolls as registered, however. It is not only Caucasians, however, who are over-regtetered in Georgia counties, Take White - t A? r County, for instance, where 143 per cent of all Negroes over 16 (the state 's minimum voting age) are registered. In 41 Georgia counties there are more registered white—and in some cases Negro—voters than residents of voting age. twenty- five Tennessee counties have moe registered voters than Is possible. So do 12 Alabama and 16 Florida counties. THE MOST blatant examples of vote fraud can probably be found in North Carolina where registered white voters outnumber white adults in 57 counties. Henderson County boasts 33,889 registered white voters although census figures show there are only 21,062 residents old enough to vote. * Johnston County has 43,883 reg istered white voters, on its rolls, More than 15 ,000 ot these, How* /thriving ballot trade the avert price it ortMy about il- ever, are obviously ghost voters, though last-minute holdouts can The Charlotte (North Carolina) Observer earlier this year corn* pleted an exhaustive investigation into vote frauds in western coun- f * ties of the state.

In truth, best slogan which the , Republicans have come up with yet to sweep them back into the White House in 1964 is: "Make America Safe for Mrs. Murphy." Such a theme might even split the Irish vote—in America, that is—away from the Kennedys. This Mrs. Murphy, of course, is an imaginary character in no way related to the Mrs. Margaretta (Happy) Murphy who in real life married Gov. Nelson Rockefeller after both divorced their former mates. There would be a double-take on the slogan if Rocky got the^ GOP nomination. IT WAS Sen. George Aiken of Vermont—as good a rock-ribbed Republican dreamed up the modern mythical Mrs. Murphy as a symbol, He introduced her during debate on minimum wage law regulations. Small shopkeepers—"like Mrs. Murphy*—who ran what used to be known as "Mom and Pop'* stores should be exempted from all these government laws affecting v^ages ar) d hours, said Sen, Aiken. - F Mrs, Murphy got back into the limelight as hearings began on the civil rights proposal to ban discrimination in all business places catering to the public] This time she was introduced by the GOP National Committee chairman, Rep. William E. Miller of New York, as a widow woman who owned her own home in & resort area and rented her spare rooitis'to tourists. Safe Mrs her rooms on ' an integrated basis? Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, lead-off witness for the administration's civil rights program, thought that one over carefully ,and then said she would not be covered. House Judiciary Committee chairman Emanuel Celler, D-N. Y., presiding over the hearing, added that Mrs. Murphy was insignificant and not worth bother- as ever was—who Would she be required to offer ing about. Rep. Miller .was still unconvinced, with justification. JUST HOW MUCH freedom and independence individuals will have to do with what they please, in the future as America becomes more and more crowded with people* is "a growing problem. Government is stepping in to regulate more and more phases of what used to be considered private life and private business. Big Brother is watching you. Little Brother too. And the guv- ment'll get you if you don't watch out. Business complains about this and all the keeping of records it entails. Then business comes to Washington and in the name of supporting a "Fair Trade Law" backs a bill that would require Mrs. Murphy to sell brand name goods at factory-fixed prices, in complete contradiction of a free market. THE NEW regulations which Internal Revenue Service has just issued on reporting business travel and entertainment expenses as income tax deductions offer another example, They affect the Mr. Murphys more than the Mrs. Murphys. They hit t nat only big shot executive types but also a lot of smaller fry who art salesmen and operators of their own businesses. ; Internal Revenue Service hai now tried to interpret a tough law intended to crack down on expense-account chiselers so as to give the Murphys with legitimate expenses a fair break. But in reporting these - expenses, the Murphys practically have to keep a diary of everything they do and how much it costs, as evidence of their deductions. If Mrs. Murphy goes along with Mr. Murphy on a business trip and her expenses for travel and entertainment can be legitimately charged off, records of that must be kept, too. The good old days when the Mrs. Murphys ran Mom and Pop establishments just as they pleased are going, going, and almost gone forever.

Avoidance of Strikes Both management and labor are on no- the act could prove to be. tice. The mood of Congress, the sentiment of the citizenry, the outspoken attitude of the Chief Executive—all are such that a railroad strike of long duration is almost unthinkabl As for the public, a rash of national emergency disputes last year and earlier this year has created a kind of plague-on-both-your- e. houses sentiment that at bottom is probably President Kennedy on June 15 arranged less hospitable to labor than to management. for a further extension of a strike deadline for Perhaps as a reflection of this public dis almost a month, thereby establishing a new gust with strikes, there now appears to be a strike date of July 1L At the same time, he definite inclination on the part of both labor warned both sides that, failing a settlement, and management to avoid them.

At this rate it wouldn't take long to deplete* the body's salt and water. When, this happens heat cramps or heat exhaustion may occur. The victim gets a. headache with fever, becomes drenched with sweat and may or may not have muscular twitching and cramps. When this happens he must be moved to a cool, shady place at once. Most of his clothing should be removed or at least loosened to allow maximum contact with air. HE SHOULD be sponged with cold water and fanned. Do not try to give him liquids by mouth if he is unconscious as this will choke him. If he is conscious, let him drink water to which salt has been added — about a teaspoonful to a quart. If he becomes cold and clammy he has heat prostration. Wrap him in a blanket and caU a doctor at once. If, on tho other hand, the skin becomes hot and dry he has a heat stroke. Immerse him in a tub of ice water and have someone call a doctor out delay. These are true emergencies and sometimes fatal. All this can be prevented, of course, by using moderation.

Take several short rests rather than fewer long ones. In this way you will avoid placing an undue burden on your heart and will get more pleasure from your warm weather pursuits. Q-tOne reader writes that he is troubled with itching eyebrows for which various lotions have given only temporary relief. Another reader asks what would cause an itching spot on his scalp that is associated with scaling. A—Both these readers appear to have seborrheic dermatitis, a condition associated with excessive dandruff and an overproduction of oil in the skin. Although this disease can rarely be cured, much can now be done to con; trol it. Sulfur ointment, coal tar ointment or soap and preparations containing selenium sulfide, cadmium sulfide, tetrathionate and pentathionate have given excellent results but they should be used only under a doctor's supervision since improper use may aggravate the condition.
