There are now, the outfit figures, some 500,000 —that's half a million-persons who are bigamists. From those relatively few of whom some facts are known, it is Inferred that almost all bigamists are' men, that they travel a lot, and that they keep their two or several marriages each in good repair and seem to everyone good husbands. The big mystery, for the data gatherers, is two-fold. For one thing, they would like to understand the devices which bigamists use to keep their different lives separate and non-interfering. For another, they would like to know more precisely who at least a large proportion of the bigamists are. That is to say, why do,they do it? ; Most of the ordinary, run-of- the-mill, one-wife husbands probably couldn't care less how the bigamists manage their deceptions nor why they do It, But they would like to know the answer to one thing; How can they afford it? - Gastonia (N,C.)

There are other practical reasons: The audiences are lively and bright. They ask good questions. He can be fairly sure of a full house.

McCarthy supporters had filed earlier In the day, as lad backers of Gov. Roger D. Branlgin, who will be a stand-In for Johnson. The Indiana confrontation puts Richard Goodwin, one of McCarthy's top lieutenants, In a ticklish spot. Despite his role In the McCarthy organization, Goodwin has long been associated with the political fortunes of the Kennedy family. Asked which way he will jump when It comes down to a McCarthy vs. Kennedy situation, Goodwin said Thursday In Milwaukee: "I don't know wlat I'm going to do, but lean say this. I don't expect Lyndon Johnson to be the nominee. It's going to be either McCarthy or Kennedy." McCarthy Is in the thick of campaigning for Tuesday's Wisconsin primary. Kennedy Is not In this one but Is urging Wisconsin Democrats to vote for McCarthy and against Johnson. In a speech In Superior, Wls., McCarthy said It's "really too kind" to criticize the South Vietnamese government as dictatorial and corrupt.
