The tragedy of Man: He starts off with a Country - and winds up with a Government! Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex H. Washburn Color Run Tuesday; We've Recovered Red and Yellow T he Star will publish its 14th tour-color photo production tomorrow, Tuesday, May 21, We hit a peak in June, 19G7, with four productions that month, Color work was discontinued during the summer vacations— and we encountered technical trouble when resuming in the Fall, One of our new darkroom refrigeration machines had to be replaced because of faulty temperature control. The four separation negatives for each color production have to be processed within half a degree of Faren- heit 68. We finally got a refrigeration unit which would hold within a quarter of a degree. That should have ended our troubles- but it didn't. Production calls for four colors- cyan (blue), magenta (red), yellow, and black. But the red and yellow vanished. It was a progressive disaster, beginning with ''Autumn in Arkansas" Oct. 18, continuing through "Buffalo River and War Eagle Fair," a two-page run Nov. 24, and ending with "Marineland Porpoises" March 6, 1968— by which time our published pictures had nothing but blue and black. Last week we discovered the trouble. The first step in a process color production is the making of the "tri-mask"— a black- and-white copy of the original color transparency which is sealed to it in exact "register" and placed in the enlarging head of the Berkey machine, which then produces the four separation negatives from which the press plates are made. If we were losing the red and yellow in the final result it could be that something was wrong with our starting film— it not only could be ... it was. Eastman's Tri-Mask film is a color-balancing device— a thick film with four layers. But it is perishable stuff. While v*e were out of color production waiting for refrigeration replacement last summer our supply of Tri-Mask film- $50 worth- was quietly going to pot. Apparently somo of the layers fogged up— therefore the red and yellow were blocked from com Ing through on the Berkey's projection of the separation negatives. I ordered one box of new Tri- Mask film, shot a series of 4x5 Ektachrome transparencies for test purposes— and last week made an apparently solid color production. The reds and yellows were back with us! You'll see it on the back page tomorrow. It shows the azaleas at the former home of Mrs. Anna Judson at N. Elm and Ave. C, a house now owned by Mrs. F. R. Johnson. The azaleas were a hobby of the late Mrs. Judson, and were at their peak when we photographed them April 20— before the prolonged rains washed them out. If you're short of red an azalea picture will let you know. Our shop color proof shows not only the red is back but the yellow also. How do we know, since there's no actual yellow in the picture? Well, the grass is green— and it takes yellow over blue to make green. Remember our last color production, "Marineland Porpoises" March 6 ? It was blue where it should have been green ... but now we believe we're back in business. Can Picket All Stores, Court Rules WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court decided today that a privately owned shopping center is essentially a public area, and to prohibit picketing there would violate constitutional guarantees of free speech. The 6-3 decision involved a union which was picketing outside a supermarket that was run by non-union employes. The owner of the shopping center contended that because it was private property the union could not picket there. But Justice ThurgooU Marshall, who delivered the opinion of the court, said modern shopping centers are "open to the public to the same extent us the commercial center of a normal nope Jmm Knife Star Printed by Dffctt gttf %J& PR?«345I ~Sitard and i artier tilt <feH Wf VOL. 69-No. 186 -10 Pages Star of Hope, 1899, Press 1927 Consolidated January 18, 1929 HOPE.

Only Family With an Electric Toothbrush on Living Room Table Lcjne Jury Trial Right Binding on States - , „ ree separate dissents were filed by Justices Hugo L. Black, Byron H. White and John M. Ha r Ian. By JOY STILLEY NEW YORK (AP) - We have probably the only apartment in New York City with an electric toothbrush on the living room table. It may not be the answer to all our decorating problems, but it has certainly solved our tooth- brushing problems. Thougji a bit out of place among the lamps, ashtrays and potted plants with which it shares display space, it came to its final resting place by the process of elimination. My husband purchased this automatic tooth cleaner as a surprise— which I feared might give me something of a shock— for my birthday. I am dubious about the wisdom of mixing electricity, water and toothpaste, but this time the lazy side of my nature won out over the cautious side. Actually, I was in no great danger of getting electrocuted while the busy bristles were swishing up and down at the rate of 11,000 stokes per minute. It turned out that there's no electric cord attached to (lie power handle which holds the toothbrushes. It operates on rechargeable batteries and the electricity all goes intu the re- charger base, where the handle rests to revitalize itself when it's not muse. However, there was one drawback to this mechanical manvl, we discovered on reading the ground rules: it had to be plugged in to a "live" electric outlet in order to keep its muscle power in working order. The outlet in our bathroom i.s on the same switch as that room's electric light. To main, tain the toothbrush in operating condition, the bathroom light would have tu remain on 24 In the Little Miss Hope contest the title went to Julie graves, daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Al Graves.

Not only would nerup. that be a little too much brightness in our lives, but while the toothbrush was charging, the electric company would be charging too. The dental delight had to be plugged in somowhere— but where? The kitchen, too far afield to make It a practical base, was vetoed. The bedrooms were similarly bypassed. Obviously the living room, with Its multitude of live outlets and its proximity to the scene of dental action, was the only possible answer. So there it sits, trailing Its electric cord, on a table behind a flower pot trailing ivy, If we know in advance that company's coming, we remove the appliance and plug it in somewhere else where it is at least invisible, though temporarily inaccessible, But the unexpected visitor, coming upon this unusual bit of decor spotlighted under the lamp, never knows whether to comment on our originality or to avert his eyes and pretend it isn't there, Two Charged With Kidnap at Little Rock LITTLE ROCK (AP) ~ The filed kidnaping charges Sunday night against two escaped convicts who a Mississippi funnel 1 claimed forced iiin) to take them to little Hock late Saturday night.

WASHINGTON Is Returning to Face Crisis By RODNEY ANGOVE Associated Press Writer PARIS (AP) _ President Charles de Gaulle consulted with his top ministers on France's growing crisis Sunday after hurrying back from Romania, but he took no immediate action despite the rebellion rising across the country, De Gaulle returned home 14 hours early from his state visit to Romania, called back by the situation which began as a students' revolt and ballooned into the biggest strike wave to cripple France in three decades. More than 100 factories and an estimated two million workers were idle, and the number increased steadily. Strike votes were called today in many factories, including Sud-Aviation's main plant at Toulouse, where the Concorde supersonic airliner is being built. The strikes started with Sud-Aviation's factory in Nantes last week. Only, the big Paris international airport, was almost deserted as airlines switched their flights to Brussels and sent travelers to Paris on chartered buses. The French capital was also without trains, postal or telegraph services, subways, buses, garbage collectors and street cleaners. Workers occupied the city's electric and water plants over the weekend, but these services were continuing. Telephones in the city were also operating normally. France's three big union federations appeared unwilling to break openly with De Gaulle, and none has called for a general strike. So far their demands have been nodest: Higher pay with no specific target and a , slight lowering of the retirement, age. " ' •' •'•" "• .:-'' De Gaulle conferred with officials in charge of national security and held a long meeting with Premier Georges Pompidou. Information Minister Georges Gorse told newsmen "various measures concerning public order were examined." There was no indication what those measures might be, or when they might be employed. But De Gaulle gave no indication that he planned to advance his radio-television address to the nation, which was still scheduled for Friday. Pompidou facing a vote of censure in the National Assembly Wednesday, has granted some concessions to the students, and since then the student situation has quieted a bit. The students are torn between a desire by many to take the year-end examinations and the determination of others to achieve drastic reform of the "bourgeois social system." The radical wing of the student groups demanded a boycott of the exams to symbolize their desire for reform, Youth at War With The Establishment, Iff* Bureaucracy, System AP News Digest By W1LUAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent PARIS (AP) - Rebellious youth in East and West have declared war on The Establishment. In the East, the Establishment is the Communist party and its bureaucracy, In the West it is the bourgeoisie and its system.

Czechoslovakia's new leaders say the Soviets are coming around and the liberalization growing numbers of young people see around them a world they did not make and do not want. The black flags of anarchism and the red flags of communism flying over the stately old Sorbonne In Paris signal the students' rebellion which has pushed Charles de Gaulle's Fifth Republic into deep crisis. "The bourgeois state must be destroyed," proclaims a big, hand-printed sign on the portico of the university's chapel. Another says: "In Warsaw, Prague, Madrid, Algiers, New York, Tokyo and Rome, students are fighting in the struggle against capitalism and against the Stalinist bureaucracy."

Winthrop Rockefeller called on the Arkansas legislature today to come to grips with "the most politically sensitive problem presently facing us" and enact legislation to legalize mixed drinks. "I am aware as you are that this is an election year," Rockefeller told a joint session of the House and Senate as the General Assembly convened. "But I am also convinced that the people want this matter resolved and now." Rockefeller revealed In his speech for the first time that his proposed cigarette tax increase will be 3 cents per package, which, he said, would produce about $5 million a year in new revenue. He said that the total new revenue from all of his tax proposals would be from $8 million to $10 million a year. Rockefeller noted that the call will permit the legislature either to legalize or outlaw mixed drinks. "I have made my position clear," he said. "The decision Is now yours." Rockefeller also called on legislators to approve a $1.8 million funding package for the state prison system and to change the date for a vote on See Legislature (on page two) The leader of the Biafran secession pledges to fight a guerrilla war after Nigerian federal forces report the capture of Port Harcourt.
