Protests Scene in Muny Opera ST. LOUIS (AP)-The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People protested a scene in a new musical comedy at the St. Louis Municipal Opera Monday, but the production director said he had already made changes which should satisfy the organization. John Kennedy, production director of "I Dream of Jeanie," which is based on Stephen Foster's works, said he aready had made changes in words and actions before tthe NAACP protest. "I made them because I wouldn't insult colored people of today with words used in older days," h e said. Kennedy said Ken Billups head of a choral group which includes 25 other Negroes, was given "carte blanche to delete anything from the songs he may have felt were offensive, and he made some changes, too." The musical-comedy, by St. Louis Post-Dispatch drama critic Myles Standish, was scheduled to begin its premier performance Monday at the outdoor opera amphitheater in Forest Park. Miss Evelyn Roberts, president of the St. Louis NAACP, said her organization objected to lines in the first scene of act 1 that, Mrs. Roberts said, stereotyped the Negro as "inferior, lazy, stupid, and addicted to gambling." Carpentier Stickler For Detail By EDWARD 8. KITC1I SPRINGFIELD, HI. (AP) Charles F. Carpentier, Illinois secretary of state, says, "I like things in shipshape condition.' The 2,500 employes under his jurisdiction are aware of it. His superintendent of buildings and grounds, James M. Walsh, sometimes is the target for his critical suggestions. "Jim, when you get around lo it, have new curbs put here," he said pointing to the chipped curbs near the Centennial Building where the auto and driver licensing operation is being quartered under one roof. "Keep those messy looking bulletins off the directory of this building, Jim." "Jim, get those flag cases (in the hall of flags) fixed up." Carpentier, 66, is known about :he capital as a fellow with a jolly smile, a friendly greeting for everyone and a low boiling point. He took over the secretaryship 11 years ago after a four-term stint as state senator. Before that he was mayor of East Moline, ind before that, an East Moline alderman. He is expected to announce Aug. 4 that he will seek the Re- jublican nomination for governor. Carpentier became known in lis home town as an operator of motion picture theaters. He gave up these operations four years ago and now operates or has an nterest in drive-ins in Scott County, Iowa, and Rock Island County, 11. His son, Donald, now serves in the Senate, a place where the elder Carpentier often is seen when he General Assembly is in session. One of the things Carpentier is quick to inform any visitor is that ic is the author of the slogan, ''Land of Lincoln." He is a great admirer of both Abraham Lincoln and Stphen A. Douglas. "If Douglas and Lincoln had ived, we wouldn't have the trou- )le we have today in race relations," he said. "What the car- pet-baggers did in the days of reconstruction shouldn't have happened." Carpentier's advice for success s: "hard work and attention to detail."

These are for the most part unskilled men. but the need still exists in various parts of Illinois for men trained in various vocational skills.

There are several ways to stretch it—or make it last forever. Try drowning, for instance—that's pretty permanent. Or feed the bears at Yellowstone, read maps on a crowded turnpike, doze-drive all night to get there sooner. People on vacation often take leave of their senses as well as their jobs. They forget tips like these: Boating: Sit down. Don't overload. Stay close to shore on shore if it's stormy. Carry life preservers. And watch your fishhooks—they're hard to remove from eyes. Swimming:Don't swim alone or try to set long-distance records. Know water depth and keep an eye on the kids. And be sure someone in your family knows mouth-to-mouth respiration. Take the sun in pink—not deep-red—doses. Camping: Be sensible about fire. Fit your hiking and climbing to your age and condition. Avoid rattlesnakes. Don't pet friendly furbearers—they might be two-faced or rabid. And leave poisonous berries—and poison ivy—alone. Driving: Improve the odds before you start—check tires, brakes, steering, lights. Install seat belts. Carry flashlight, flares, first-aid kit. Load up so you can see the road behind. Cut the risk by driving in daylight—at reasonable speeds for reasonable miles. At home: Don't tell thieves you've gone. Stop deliveries of newspapers, mail, milk. Lock up, but don't pull shades. Why the free advice? Well, Country Mutual's service to Farm Bureau members makes us one of Illinois' leading auto, property and liability insurers. So we know how costly carelessness can be.
