Her comments were in an ad* dress prepared for delivery to* day. She said inferior quality goods, overpricing, high interest rates and fraudulent practices are common in the slums, "Unethical retail practice is a principal burner under any long hot summer," she said. Miss Furness added! "I think the burning days of April ( have made it clear that one of the great problems of our urban ghettos is that the poor are being swindled, or feel they're being swindled," Referring to a major 1965 riot, she asked: "Is it so startling that stores were burned in Watts where the markup on television sets ranged as high as 160 per Cent above prices for the exact model in other parts of Fight Over Release of Information by CARL P. LEUBSDORF Associated Press Writer . WASHINGTON (AP) Sources predict the House Government Operations Committee will beat back what a Republican member calls "an attempt to muzxle" a watchdog subcommittee on government Information. Chairman John E. Moss, D- Calif., declined direct comment on the effort by Rep. William L. Dawson, chairman of the full committee, to abolish his subcommittee—a panel which has championed access to government information and has assailed corruption in the U.S. aid program in Vietnam. But Rep. Qgden R. Reid of New York, the subcommittee's ranking Republican, criticized tfee move .and said it came "at a critical juncture in our affairs —when dissent is not always encouraged." Reid called the move "an attempt to muzzle" the panel. Dawson, an 81-year-old Chicago Democrat, is empowered to reorganize subcommittees. But a majority of the full com mlttee can force a meeting and overturn his actions. The subcommittee is counting on support from all 15 Republicans and at least 3 of the 20 Democrats if a showdown is necessary to force Dawson. to retreat from his present plan. Dawson's stated reason for abolishing, the subcommittee, given April 11 in a letter to Republican Rep. Florence P. Dwyer of New.Jersey, was the House action- reducing the full c o m m i 11 e e 's budget from $875,000 to $550,000. THE Los Angeles?

(AP) - Mrs. Myrtle Clark, 47, charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of her husband, testified Wednesday that Millard Cla.rk, 51, was shot when he fell as he was checking their shopping center for prowlers. Prosecutor David Hodges of Newport rested the state's case Wednesday morning and Fred M. Pickens, Mrs. Clark's attorney, called her to the stand. Pickens asked Mrs. Clark did she and her husband have any domestic troubles March 18, 1967, the day Clark's body was found on the floor beside his bed with a wound in the back of his head. "Wo had gotten along better in the last five years than we had the last 20," she answered. Mrs. Clark testified that Clark kept a ,38-caliber pistol on a night stand by the bed or placed it in the night stand drawer after several, instances of hearing strange noises in the shopping center. The couple was living in ah apartmnnt on the second floor of the shopping center. She said that the night of Clark's death, he had heard prowlers. She said he got up and went to the window. He then returned to bed. She said he heard the noise again and took the gun from the drawer. She said the next thing she .knew,: the.,gun went, bfy' and saw her husband between the bed and the wall with his head on his pillow. Pickens asked her Ihether Clark had stumbled and fallen befor in the dark. "Yes sir, many times," she answered. Board Picks Polling Sites LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The attorney general's office ruled Wednesday that county election commissioners, not school boards, pick polling places. George W. Fite of Malvern, superintendent of Glen Rose schools, who sought the opinion, said the district wnated to lease a building for use during school elections because some patrons objected to the center presently used. HONOLULU (AP) - Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mans* field says it is "very questionable" whether the Viet Cong is a Communist organization. He made the statement on a discussion program produced by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and KHPH-TV, Honolulu. Mansfield also indicated a deep division of opinion about Communist China miy exist be- tween President Johnson and Secretary of State Dean Rusk Mansfield said President Johnson does not view the Viet* nam war as a confrontation with Red China. Asked if that position wasn't in conflict with recent testimony before the Senate Foreign Rela* tions Committee in which Rusk conjured up the "specter" of a billion Chinese threatening Southeast Asia, Mansfield replied: "t think he was ill*advised to say what he did, 1 don't think he thought through what he said." Mansfield said the United States should withdraw from Vietnam as soon as is honorably possible because "we have no Vital interest there and ... it is not necessary to the security of the United States." He added he regarded as invalid the theory that with U.S. forces gone the nations of South- eat Asia would topple like domi* nos. "The war in Vietnam, allegations to the contrary, is a civil war because the Viet Cong are South Vietnamese," he said. Kennedy Declines Challenges By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Sen. Eugene J, McCarthy, campaigning in Indiana, says he wants to debate Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, and also wants Secretary of State Dean Rusk to resign because of his association with the Vietnam war, Kennedy responded to the McCarthy debate challenge by saying the Minnesotan "isn't the only candidate" and that he is willing to debate all other White House contenders together, including Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, who is expected to be a candidate. There was no comment from the Johnson administration regarding McCarthy's demand that Rusk leave. On the Republican side, Gov. Nelson A.

BRANDSTADT, M.D. If you plan to take advantage of the good weather ahead to paint or repair your home, you will probably have to bring out the ladder. The National Safety Council advises that, before you use it, you check it for cracks due to drying out, rotting or termite damage that may have occurred during the winter. Jt is better to apply linseed oil or a varnish to preserve the wood than to use paint, because the latter can hide dangerous cracks and other weaknesses. Although metal ladders are easier to handle than wooden , ones, they are also good con' duetors of electricity. For this reason, you should not use this type of ladder within four feet of wiring or electrical equipment. The loot of your ladder must be firm and level. If it is placed too close to a wall, your weight may cause it to faU backward and if too far away, you will put too great a strain on the ladder. The ideal distance between the foot of the ladder and the Wftii is one-quarter of the distance from the foot to the point of contact on the wall. .fhs top oj the ladder must §Jsq rest against a firm, even ». Jf you must place the m from of $ door, you rrt task tt» door, ladder you are climbing up and climbing down and take only one rung at a time. Before climbing up, you should make sure there is no wasp nest under the eaves. If there is a strong wind, don't try to erect your ladder. Wait for a calmer day. While you are on the ladder, don't try to reach beyond a comfortable arm's length. Never lean so far to one side that you have to stand on only one foot. If, while on the ladder, you feel faint, it is safer to drape your arms between the rungs and rest your head on the ladder until you feel better than to try to climb down. If you are using a stepladder, you should make sure it is fully opened and that the spreader or brace is in the locked position. Unless it is a short, three-step kitchen stepladder, don't climb higher than the second step from the top. Never lean a stepladder against the wall and use it as you would a straight ladder. Follow these rules and you may live to climb the ladder of success. (Newspaper Enterprise Ann.} Pleatt und yew/ quejdonj and comment) to Woyr.c G Sronditodt, MO-, in cart ot Mi paper.
