Friday, MareK 18. (966 Editorials And Features Perry Britton Served Baytown Chamber Wei The Baytown Chamber of Commerce ends a year Monday night by starting another. The term of President Perry W. Britton will end. and the tenure of Eldon Berry will start- Perry Britton probably will go down in history as president of the trade group during the most momentous era in the history of the organization. He was at the helm when official announcement was made that U.S. Steel was coming to Baytown. It was the biggest commercial or industrial announcement since the late Gov. R. S. Sterling and his associates over five decades ago revealed they would erect a refinery on a rice field near Wooster and Goose Creek, It didn't take the U.S. Steel announcement, however, to make the year a successful one. That merely made it fabulous. The Perry Britton year was highly successful because Perry gave the organization sincere and dedicated leadership, and he was accorded fine cooperation both from the board of directors and the entire membership. There are few chambers of commerce in this area or any other area that are as close to their membership as is the Baytown Chamber. The reason is the weekly luncheons each Friday. You attend or you don't attend. There is no pressure. It gives newcomers an opportunity to meet other people. It gives older business people an opportunity to visit with old friends and to hear what is going on in this community. It gives the president an opportunity to gauge the interest of the membership in the projects before the organization. The Baytown Chamber of Commerce will have a good year under the guidance of new President Berry. And let us repeat that if the Berry tenure is as fine as the Perry Britton tenure, there will be nothing but accolades at the end. All of which adds up to this: Perry Britton, you did a darn good job. The Baytown Sun and many other friends are proud of you. Fulton Lewis Speaks — 60 Soviet Vessels In U.S. Territorial Zone By FULTON LEWIS JR. WASHINGTON — Administration officials have played down the alarming news that 60 Soviet vessels outfitted with the most modern electronic equipment have been spotted in U.S. territorial waters during the past year and a half. Nikolai F. Artamonov, a Soviet skipper who defected to the west, has testified that Red trawlers are "loaded with electronic gear for keeping tabs on U.S. Navy units, radar frequencies, shore-based signals and flight patterns or early warning aircraft." Sen. John Tower (R.-Tex.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, last week recommended to his colleagues a study published in Navy magazine that details the clandestine operations of the Soviet fishing fleet. The article, written by Raymond Schuessler, warns: "There is also the possibility of thes e vessels conducting electronic surveillance of our military defenses and exploring ways of interfering with or controlling the guidance and abortive systems of our missiles and rockets." A NASA scientist concedes that Soviet agents stationed aboard fishing trawlers "would have no trouble throwing a communications monkey wrench into our space flights if they wanted to." Vice Adm. John Hayward has told Congress that the Soviet fishing fleet is mapping New Fngland coastal waters, presumably as an aid for missile- toting submarines, The Soviets are known to have planted in the ocean floor off both coasts radioactive devices that will enable missile- men to "home in" on key American targets. More than 40 of our largest cities and 80 per cent of U. S, industry lie within missile range of the markers. The Coast Guard is operating on a limited, peacetime basis and officials of that service admit that Soviet trawlers off Florida could put ashore or take aboard agents, weapons and other material with little chance of detection. (The Coast Guard has only one boat to patrol the entire coast between Palm Beach and Miami.) Coast Guard officials believe that it would be in the nation's best interest to board Soviet vessels observed in U.S. waters, to examine the ship's log, to check for any violations of U. S. security. But State Department planners insist this would only increase East-West tensions, that Soviet trawlers should be presumed peaceful unless there is positive information to the contrary. NOTE: Russian vessels are stationed near U. S. military bases in the South Pacific. When the Guam-based B-52s began air strikes against North Viet Nam, two Russian trawlers with giant antennas set up posts four miles from the Guam airbase. Adds Navy magazine: "Since we did not protest, we soon found the Russian trawlers trailing the 7th Fleet off Formosa. Now spy trawlers are off Viet Nam where they can give immediate information on American air attacks, and. at times, amphibious landings. During one U. S. Marine attack, according to a Pulitzer Prize correspondent, the Soviet trawlers were able to report when, what and how many U. S. troops were involved." HIGHLY recommended: "The Paper BuIIett" (William Morrow and Company, Inc., New York, $4.95) by Otis Carney. Carney is more than an engrossing wordsmith. He is a novelist of great perception who spells out in gripping fashion the all-too-effective work of Kremlin agents who mobilize "world opinion" against the enemies of international Communism.

It is the story of Moise Tshombe, Chiang Kai-Shek, and Ngo Dinh Diem. A political novel of the first order, "The Paper Bullet" ranks with Allen Drury's "Advise and Consent" and Constantine Fitzgibbon's "When the Kissing Had to Stop." CAPITAL CAPSULE: Radio Peking has announced what security officials already knew — that U. S. leftists will stage •widespread protests next week against the war in Viet Nam. March 25 and 26 have been proclaimed "International Days of Protest" and more than 100,000 Americans are expected to pour into the streets to denounce U. S. policy. Among the groups that will participate in rallies throughout the country are the Communist - controlled W.E.B. DuBois Clubs, the pro - Peking Progressive Labor Party, and the radical Students for a Democratic Society. Reports from Havana indicate that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has become increasingly jittery. Trigger-happy guards have in the past month shot by mistake three members of the foreign diplomatic community, including an envoy from Communist Yugoslavia. Letter To The Editor Editor, The Sun Dear Sir: We have again arrived at the season of the year wherein we strive to improve educational opportuniteis for our children by removal of members of the en- tranched machine that has stood so long against us. As usual, we have the conservatives, in Knox Beavers and Ben Shiray, trying to maintain the status quo, men who will place niggardliness above educational excellence, who will sacrifice the future for a few immediate dollars gain. If not in fact, these men are in philosophy and practice an extension of the conservative establishment of Connally, Carr, Tunnell, and Crawford Martin. They are special interest men; they are not public servants in the high tradition of American politics. The children of our school district have had far too much of "too little" and "too late'' on our school board, and poor management of their days in school, in spite of diligent effort on the part of our capable classroom teachers. Those visiting our schools during Public School Week {and the visitors were very few in the junior and senior high schools) could judge for themselves the poor use made by school top management of both our tax money and the efforts of our teachers and students. We hope that the voters of Baytown will reject the negative thinking and actions and the mistakes of the past and elect new, young, and vigorous blood to our board of trustees. We have such an opportunity in the person of Carol Opryshek and Bob Wahrmund. Ray Heinrich Mrs. Barbara Hcinricb New Toy Poses Major Problem in Transportation GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Jerry Bouman Jr. finally got his new toy home for the kiddies. But it wasn't easy. The toy is a 13-ton Army tank which Bouman bought from a Detroit tavern keeper. He hopes to use it to give his wife and three children rides around their 11-acre property in suburban Belmoat. "I'm a bug on tanks and my wife is almost as bad." Boumaa said. Bouman and the tank arrived home Tuesday after an overnight trip from Detroit. The tank was hauled 145 miles on a flat-bed truck at a cost of 5215. about a third of the price of the tank. It also cost Bouman a lot of sweat. The Kent County road commission ruled the tank was too heavy for a small bridge. So Bouman had to detour six blocks. It took three hours of towing, winching and bracing, up and down sveral hills. On hand to welcome the tank were Bouman's wife. Donna, and 5-year-old daughter Sheri Yvonne. Two sons, Jerry, 8, and Mark, 6, were at school — under protest. Bouman, a former Navy aviation mechanic, works in an appliance factory and repairs and makes guns part-time. Ke said he got interested in tanks by reading about them. So did his wife. "I probably wouldn't have done it on my own." he said. "But the more you read about tanks the more they interest you." This one. a World War H model T6 which sports two inoperative 37mm antiaircraft guns and twin Cadillac engines, is the first he has owned. Bouman hopes to have the engines running by the weekend. As for Mrs. Bouman, she can hardly wait for her first ride, but she thinks she probably will have to, because: "Everybody and his brother-in-law says they're first." Beer, Liquor Boosters To Try Fourth Time LAKE DALLAS, Tex. (AP)— Advocates of beer and liquor at the tiny community of Lake Dallas, near Denton. will try to muster enough votes April 9 in the fourth election within eight months on selling intoxicants. The Denton County Commissioners approved the election when presented with a petition signed by 90 residents. One of the previous elections was invalidated when it was learned not enough persons signed the petition forcing an election. The other three efforts failed. The election would authorize legal sale of beer for off- premises consumption.

Washington Merry- Go-Round — Dodd Used Campaign Funds To Write Book Bv DREW PEARSON and JACK A>T>ERSON WASHINGTON — One interesting chapter in the life of Sen. Tom Dodd. D-Conn., whom this column has praised for his battle against monopoly, juvenile delinquency, and indiscriminate sale of guns, is his finances. He had a habit of financing various private projects out of money raised from friends to finance his election. The sepro- jects ranged from vacations for his family, to repairs on his home, to paying ghostwriters for a book to be published under his name. Two of the ghostwriters were Edward Lockert to whom was paid S8.000 out of the "Testimonial for U.S. Sen. Thomas J- Dodd" account, and Jay Sourwine to whom Dodd paid ?2,500 The latter transaction is especially interesting because one of Sourwine's checks, for $2,500 bounced. Sourwine is the well known counsel for the Senate Internal Security Committee which has focused great attention on government security risks. The committee's defini - tion of a security risk includes a man who cannot pay his debts. Sen. Dodd's intimate financial relations with Sourwine are important right now, at a time when the White House has been persuaded to abolish the State Department's Bureau of Securi- Fred Hartman Editor and Publisher James H.

It has been suspected that Sourwine, Sen. Dodd, and Miss Francis Knight of the Passport Division persuaded the White House to abolish Schwartz's job. SOURWTNE CAME to Washington from Nevada under the late Sen. Pat McCarran, D-Nev., to become counsel of the Internal Security Committee, headed by McCarran, Sen. William Jenner, R-Ind., and latterly by Sen. James Eastland of Mississippi. Dodd is one of the committee's most zealous members. At x'arious closed - door sessions of this committee. Sourwine grilled Schwartz on such petty matters as, "Did you describe this committee or its proceedings in derogatory terms? . . . Did you make it a point of telling these officials that I was highly nervous . . . and that I took some pills and drank a great deal of water?" Sourwine. with the support of Sen. Dodd, put Schwartz on the griddle for allegedly harassing Miss Knight and trying to fire her as head of the Passport Office. The part that Sourwine and Dodd appeared to have played in Schwartz's ouster was only a small part of an unusual career. Sen. Jacob Javits. R-N.Y., when attorney general of New- York blamed Sourwine for the accusation that he, Javits, had used Communist help in first getting elected to Congress. Sourwine also aroused the wrath of the late Sen. Tom Hennings, D-Mo., for going on a witch hunting expedition against the New York Times in 1955. He accused various staff members of the Times with prior membership in the Communist party. Most recently Sourwine had aroused Dodd's ire by branding the American Friends Service Committee as pro - Communist. Sen. Dodd apologized and told intimates that he would demand Sourwine's resignation. But nothing happened. DESPITE ALL this, the senator from Connecticut wrote in his diary Jan. 20, 1964: "Jay Sourwine visited the office. A couple of weeks ago, he came to see me and said he knew I was attempting to write a book, and that he could be helpful. He would have to do this on his own time, and if I could pay him 53.500, he could be of great assistance. "I told him at that time that it was pretty expensive, and he said that he owned some money and was getting pressed to pay- it. This is why he would like to earn some extra money. "Some days later he called on me again and asked if I would endorse a check of his so that he could cash it at the Senate disbursing office. Today, he said he was worried about his check and that it had bounced at his bank in Nevada. "This was very upsetting to me because I had endorsed it so that he could cash it. He said he would see what he could do about it. and the matter was left at that." On Jan. 27, the senator wrote further: "Jay Sourwine came by this afternoon and told me his check had bounced ... I told him what I thought about it and told him I was very put out about it. He asked if I would make it good. He said he would do some extra work to help me with the book and would do it on his own time." Dodd gave Sourwine a check for S2.500 on the Hartford National Bank- Next day. Jan. 28, Dodd's political henchman, Ed Sullivan, negotiated a S2.500 loan for Dodd with Connecticut Bank ey in the Hartford National and Trust, and deposited them Bank to make good the Senator's check to Sourwine. The Connecticut Bank and Trust loan was finally paid off one year later from the pro - ceeds of a fund - raising dinner, March 8, 1965, to which Vice President Humphrey was induced to come on the plea that Dodd needed to pay off his 1364 campaign deficit. Secrets Can Be Bared By HEXBY MdXMOHE "Carefully fill out the top portion of the Selection Profile. Then, in a rapid manner, make & check mark in the "Me" column beside the things you like, the things you dislike, the things you are. and have. Then go back and make a check mark in the "He-She' column beside the things you prefer the other person would like, would dislike, to be like and to have." If you do this, and send the Selection Profile to the Comp- tronic Selection Corp.. Boulder, Colo., or to one of its branches in Albuquerque. N. Mex.. Cocoa Beach. Fla., or Des Koines, Lowa. It will be processed at a Data Center, and you will be on your way to finding yourself an ideal husband, wife, or bosom friend. The "I Like" column covers about everything a person could like with the possible exception of going to the dentist and losing at cards. Here is a sample of the "Likes": concert, opera, movies, science, religion, rural life, city life, chess, history, debate, gossip, phychia- try, dancing and current events. The "I Dislike" list is not quite so inclusive but it covers quite a bit of ground: neatness, order, men, women, etiquette, overwpir-bt. ho>J«<?work. family life, animals, and attentlon- The "I Have" column runs a fairly comprehensive gamut. It mentions a beard, thin hair, no hair, many worries, no worries, good habits, bad habits, many friends, and no friends.

The "I Arn's" include handsome, pretty, strong, weak, different, polite, not handsome, not pretty, tall, short, common, normal, a drinker, a smoker, smart, not smart, lonely, not lonely, a salesman, a manager, a professional, a clerk, a skilled worker, careless, and carefuL \ How happy I am that the Comptronic Selection Corp.. with its sympathetic personnel and ruthlessly true Data Processing gadgets, was not functioning before Mary and I were married, for we never would have been matched up by the Comptronic Selection Corp., at its main office or one of the branch ones. Mary and I have been extremely happy, but certainly I wouldn't have been in a hurry to propose if I had found out through the Comptronic people that she liked — and she does— ironing, thinking, order, crowds, and seclusion. And I feel certain she would not have flown into my arms had she known that I had thin hair, many worries, was short, not handsome, had bad habits, and was weak. How do you think she would have felt about marrying me if Comptronics had tipped her off that my Selection Profile showed that I was crazy about criminology, rural life, debate, woodwork, straight hair, gossip, and group sports. Comptronics may think it is on the right track in bringing about marriages, but it isn't. The best thing to do is to keep the other party fooled as long as possible. This laying of one's cards on the table, at the start, is fatal. I am not at all sure, after all these years, that Mary is certain that my hair is thin, so skillful am I at combing it a thousand different ways to cover up the bald spots.

YOUR FUTURE Be alert for the splendid business opportunities heading- your way. Today's child will b« resourceful. BORN TODAY Born in 1837, Stephen Grover Cleveland has been the only president of the U.S. to serve two non-consecutive terms. He was first elected in 1884. lost to Benjamin Harrison in 1888. and was reelected in 1892. An honest, stubborn, bigh- p r incipled man, C1 e v eland was an old - fashioned, 19th century liberal baffled by the new problems of an industrial society. Though he pushed civil service reform, opposed the pension grab and attacked the high tariff rates, neither of his administrations was successful. His first term was marred by wrangling- within his party; the second by a serious economic crisis and a wave of strikes, By RUTH RAMSEY Cenfrcl fr»tt Writer the worst of them being the Pullman Palace Car Company dispute in Chicago, 111. When violence broke out, Cleveland sent federal troops to restore order. The union's charge that Cleveland used the soldiers to break tht: strike lost him the support of organized labor. Others born this day are composer Nicholas Rimsky-Korsakov, Lawrence Cardinal Shehan, poet Robert Coffin and actors Smiley Burnett, Robert Donat and Edward Everett Horton.

If you could be sure of making five c!ub tricks, you would be certain of the contract, but, since the odds favor making only four of them, you must consider a diamond finesse as an eventual source for the twelfth trick. Peculiarly enough, the best method of play is to take the diamond finesse first. Suppose at trick two you lead a diamond to the jack and the finesse wins. Once this occurs you have a 100% chance of making- the contract. The only problem left is to make four club tricks, and this can be arranged by returning to your hand with a spade. a heart or a diamond and leading a low club towards dummy. Obviously, if the clubs are divided 2-2 or 3-1, you will easily make four club tricks, but, by playing this way, you also make four club tricks if the suit is divided 4-0. Which opponent has the four clubs would make no difference. If it turns out that, the diamond finesse at trick two loses, you will have to assume that South was dealt the K-x of clubs and rely on a finesse to bring home five club tricks. 2. There are two things to watch out for — a possible trump loser and a possible club loser. Play the ace of spades and then a low spade to the queen. If both opponents foliow suit, discontinue drawing trumps. Now lead the A-K-Q of clubs. If the clubs turn out to be divided 3-3, draw the outstanding- trump and claim the rest. If the clubs are divided 4-2, you may or may not make the contract, depending on how the adverse cards are divided. If the defender with the three trumps has four clubs also, you make the hand because your fourth club can be ruffed in dummy. If the defender with three trumps has only two clubs, you gx» down one, but then you would have gone down one even if you had drawn his last trump earlier. (© 1966, King Features Syndicate. Inc.)
