Wqshingfoii Window Civn rights shifts focus to Wiseonsin By Lyle C. WDaoB CAKNIVAL By Dick Turner The civil rights spotlight shifts this week from the U.S Senate and the embattled South to an improbable tocus on the sUte of Wisconsin. Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama is entered in Tuesday's Democratic presidentia] primary. With a Democrat in the White House and eligible for the ISM presidential nomination, a Democratic presidential pri mary in Wisconsin should be the least newsworthy of political events. Wallace changed thSt He entered the primary to jSve Wisconsm voters a chance - to express themselves with reflect to the civil rights legislation now pending in the Senate. Wisconsin's Democratic Gov. John B. Beynolds is a primary favorite son opposing Wallace. Reynolds is committed to President Johnson and the civil rights bill. Tests Racial Views Wisconsin is one of several states in which racial attitudes will be tested this year. Wallace is entered in the Indiana and Maryland primaries. A Boston municipal election earh'er this year became a triumph for a school board member who boldly had challenged Negro demands for faster and more effective integration of the public school system. There has been much specula tion as to the political impact in northern communities of Negro pressure for open housing and such unusual methods of| ''school integration as sending white or Negro children by bus far from then: neighborhood schools to obtain a classroom racial mixture satisfactory to Negro leaders. Opposition to the busing of children away from their neighborhoods has been briskly angry even in New York, the capital city of civil rights. The matter of open housing —prevention of racial discrimi nation in the sale or renting of housing — has been an issue of some consequence in Wisconsin. But the state has no race problem in the sense that others are afflicted. Democratic leaders, therefore, had hoped and expected Wallace's vote to be so light as to be meaningless. Gets Chilly Reception United Press International re ported last week from Milwaukee that the Democratic leaders were chilled by the re ception Wallace received Milwaukee's South Side, a heav' ily Polish-Catholic area. This substantial Milwaukee district is agamst open housing, open housing bill was defeated last year in the Wisconsin legislature Wallace got an ovation from the South Siders. An aide said "We couldn't have done as well in Alabama." Autograph seek ers mobbed the governor. It must be conceded that an im pressive vote for Wallace mU have some impact on the Sen ate where the Civil rights bill is pending. Politicians are eager to know how northern commun ities are reacting to civil rights developments now that Negro pressure for a new deal has hit hard in the North. Sen. Kenneth B. Keating (R N. Y.) starUed the Senate in mid-March by revealing that his thousands of letters from New York were running about 50-50 for and against the civil rights bilL During some weeks, Keating said, "a majority of the letters opposed the biU. This is strange, indeed. New York seeks always to impose on white southerners the most rigid civil rights standards. Perhaps New York prefers to inte grate the South first, itself lat |cr. April showers annoying for that glamorous look By GAY PAULEY UPI Women's Editor NEW YORK (UPI)-Those April showers bring the Jlay flowers, but they also put a burden on a girl's maintenance of appearance. Some women manage to look glamorous rain or shine. Others find their hair droopy as a wet spaniel's on a rainy day no matter what amount of hair spray used, their stockings splashed at the backs from walking the wet sidewalks, their kid gloves stiff as a motorman's mitt, their makeup proving it isn't so waterproff after all. How do those'in the limelight maintain their glamour, though dampened? "Stand straight and walk erectly," said Jinx Falkenburg, radio and television star. "Don't look as if you've been beaten down by the drops." Only Lipstick "I wear only lipstick on rainy days," she said. It's a good day to look fresh-scrubbed. .And my hair, I just tuck all of it under a turban type hat." "Get some bright color in your wardrobe,"", she continued. "A bright coat, a bright um- breila." Others asked for their rainy day secrets agreed that color is a boost "I wear a bright scarf," said Anita Colby, the , blonde beauty known as "Hie Face." "Lifts the spirits on a drab day." Mrs. Frederick Eberstadt, Ogden Nash's daughter, and often mentioned for those best dressed lists, said she relies on an oversize umbrella—like a golfer's umbrella in several colors. "I get mto the brightest colors I own," said actress Joan Crawford. "Cyclamen, Kelly green, bright pink. Never black or somber tones. I use plastic raincoats so the color shows through. Or, when I can find them, I get raincoat, boots and umbreUa coordinated." Eva Likes Whit* Said actress Eva Gabor, "I dress against the weather, hate the gray of a gray day. so I put on white. I hate boots.^I just put on my pret tiest shoes and let them get wet if they must. Makeup's no problem because I don't wear any for days except on eyes and hps." Melame Kahane, the brunette beauty who bosses her own in terior decorating firm, also relies on bright colors—"A gray day is a perfect foil for color,' she said. "I have several handsome umbrellas. I think they do something for a costume. Tve never owned a raincoat I hate to concede that much to the weather." Muriel Johnstone, a handsome blonde who heads her ovna ad- vertisiog agency, relies on a coverall rain cape with hood— "I Just can't cope with umbrellas," she said. "And if I HAVE to wear'boots, I shed them as soon as possible. I tuck an extra pau: of white kid gloves in my purse for say a lunch affKuntment Nothing looks worse to me than gloves splash cd." Look Fashionable "Just because it is so difficult to feel glamorous on a rainy day, it is important to look as fashionable as possible," said Pauline Trigere, the designer who heads her own Seventh Avenue dress manufacturing firm. "Wear something special, a glowing color, and a careful ly chosen rain ensemble rather than the miscellaneous collec- fion of boots, raincoat and urn brella too many women cling to." Miss Trigere's favorite ensemble is an ombre red raincoat with umbrella to match. "The colors," she said, "make a bright spot for me and I hope for others as well." Pamela Tiffin, the beautiful young actress, skips makcupj until she arrives at her destination and then ducks into a powder room for a quick touch up. "Rain drives me to lavender eye shadow," she said, because rain reminds me ofj lilacs." About. . thoso splashes on' stockings. "Carry tissue and! wipe,' the women agreed. Unanimously not for glamour —the ubiquitous plastic rainhat "They're the terrible imposition of the technological age," said Miss Kahane.

Tries to break latest enthusiasm for drugs contest about what the 1964 He- publican consensus on civil rights is and ought to be was brought from the Senate Republican caucus to the Senate floor by Sen. Jacob Javits of New York. In so doing, the Senator in effect offered a preview of the platform struggle at the G.O.P. National Conven tion next July. Javits contended that Republicans already had developed a civil ngbXs consensus and it was in favor of pending legislation. He pointed out that the only reason the Senate had the bill was beoause House Repub licans in key committees' and on the ftoor gave it indispensable supports. He called the roll of Repub lican Governors considered to be Presidential possibilities and cited their approval of it He called attention to three test votes on the- Senate on the pending measure. In one. Republicans voted unanimously to take up the bill. In the other two, a heavy Republican ma jority took the civil rights side.

By DELOS SMITH UPI Science Editor NEW YORK (UPI)—A newly written "natural history" of the itchy skin disease which is connected somehow with allergies, (although medical science doesn't know just how,) offered little hope to its many victims. And it only accented its mysteries. Its average duration among long-term victims who provided facts for this "natural history" was about 30 years. The longest single duration among them was 63 years. The disease is "atopic dermatitis." It is an on-and-off itchiness and is be- lived due to deep-down allergic reactions. Family Background Among the now historical victims S5 per cent were also given to asthma, hay fever, hives, mi^aine headaches, and allergic rhinitis which is a run ny nose not caused by the common cold. All this empha sized its connections to the generalized allergic state called "atopy." In 65 per cent there was a family background of atopy.

Iwitb tte buflet" Diego to come up with the ob- servafa'on that there are two sets of four seasons in space, that winter is the hottest sea son and summer the coldest. Like the time business, it goes back to the pomt that an astronaut is traveling around earth, back and forth across the equa tor. At the same time, the earth is moving about the sun. From Winter to Summer Bearing in mind that when it is summer in the northern hemisphere it is winter in the southern half of earth, one can see the difficulty. The spaceship goes from printer to summer and back to winter every hour and a half. It is one of the quirks of nature that in an American winter, the earth is ctosest to the sun and that in summer, it is farthest away. Seasons, howev cr, are dictated not by Uie earth- sim distance, but the angle at which - solar rays strike, the globe. Except, again, in the mixed up world of space. .As the General Dynamics engineers explained it, "winter, when the earth is closest to the sun, will be the hottest season. Temperatures on the exterior of the space station will range up to 210 degrees." But in an American summer, "the season is reversed... when Uie eartii is farthest from the sun. The angle of the sun's rays will drop temperatures on the exterior of the space station down to about zero." To. space engineers, it Is one great big headache. It means Uiey must design temperature controls in space stations to take care of two sets of seasons that occur at the same time. It is roughly equivalent to b-yiog to air-condition and to heat a house at the same time. "These seasons get awfully complicated," one admitted. "They sure went In for sleeping bags, didn't they?" Thief picks wrong man SAN JOSE, Calif. (UPI) -A would-be gun thief was behind bars today because he picked on the wrong man. Pohce said the suspect Friday entered the gun shop of Joe Doutre, 50, with a weapon to be repaired. As Doufre turned his back, the man picked up a hammer from the counter and hit Doutre on the head with it twice, stabbed him in the back with a switch-blade knife kicked him in the ribs and then bound and gagged him. As the thief filled a paper bag with eight revolvers and automatics, Doutire worked loose from his bonds. The man ran out the door and Doutre picked up a 38 automati'c, went to the door and ordered him to stop. The man refused and Doufre —a veteran competitive marksman—fired once, hitting him in Uie left leg. The man, identi fied by police as Robert D. Rodela, 23, of San Jose, was taken to a hospital in fair condi tion. The gun shop owner's mjuries were minor. Doutre said of the experience: "When! yelled at him to stop, he looked at me as if he were.seemg a ghost Fish in master plan SACRAMENTO (UPI) -CaU- Ifomia, which already has master plans for everything from schools to sewers, now is developing one for fish and game. The basic idea is to protect wildlife from human progress and other master plans—such as Uie California Water Plan. The state Fish and Game Department specifically wants to find out where California wildlife is going, how it is getting there and if anything can be done about it We want to get a better grip on the future," explains Robert Jones, a department researcher and biologist Jones Wednesday took charge of a department study he hopes will result in a "California Fish and Wildlife Plan." This in turn will become part of an overall "State Development Plan" — a sort of "master - master" plan for California in 1980. U we can predict what environmental changes will take place," Jones says, "Then we can foresee our problems and find solutions. Changes aren't always bad for wildlife. Some can be beneficial."

FOX United Press International Notes from the foreign news cables f Japanese Communists: A recent U. S.

They agree that Communist influence in the tirade unions is diminishing. They also agree Uiat the party has been split by the Sino-Soviet dispute. Yet, the Reds poUed 1,500,000 votes in last fall's parliamentary elections — compared with 1 million in 1960. They also increased their number of seats from Uiree to five. The number of card-carrying Communists hit a low-of 37,0CO in 1959, but since counfry witii a booming and widespread prosperity like Japan's, the best explanation is the simplest: As the once rigidly-doctrinaire Japan Socialist party eases toward the middle ground in a quest for "respectability" and power, its extreme left drifts away to the Communists. Berlin Talks: Western officials doubt that a new round of talks between West Berlin and East German representatives — reopening this Wednesday—will achieve agreement on passes for West Berliners to visit relatives in East Berlin. The West Berlin government has agreed with the West German government it can not accept the main Communist condition—that the passes be issued, by East German functionaries from offices in West Berlin. China-American Politics: The Nationalist Chinese government will try again this year to keep its nose out of domestic American politics — but once again, it probably won't succeed. There is no hidmg the plain fact that Nationalist leaders are solidly pro-Republican. And the more conservative the Republican, the more "pro" they are. Former Vice President Richard M.
