Death is dawn, the waking from a weary night of fevers unto truth and light.—Joaquin Miller. Editorial Death From Afar COUR UNITED STATES PRESIDENTS have been shot to death: Lincoln, Garfield. McKinley and now Kennedy. There have been attempts against others that failed. It is worth noting tihat in every case but the last, the foul deeds were perpetrated at close range. Though hand weapons capable of killing men at ranges up , to hundreds of yards have existed since at least the days of | the Kentucky long rifle, John F. Kennedy was the first president ] to be so assassinated—indeed, was probably the first outstanding | leader in all history to be murered at a distance. j It is ominously significant that it should occur at this time ! in history, when this nation—and all nations—are openly vulner- j able to long-range destruction. { U. E. Baughman, former head of the Secret Service, wrote : In his memoirs that his men could provide sure protection for I the presidents under their charge in almost ail circumstances, j he had only one great worry during his years in the serv» ice, and that was precisely what befell President Kennedy: the ! unseen rifle, telescopically equipped, protruding from one of i thousands of windows along a crowded city street. Short of containing the president in a bulletproof cocoon, or employing hundreds of men to search and patrol every; building along a given route, there was no way the Secret; Service could guarantee the president's safety against a de- j termined rifleman. j In the days before the atomic bomb and intercontinental < missiles, the military chiefs of a nation could offer reasonable j guarantees for their country's safety. Policies could be based l upon the bality to resist possible armed attack. Today, when hydrogen weapons make possible the assassination of entire nations, for the first time in history we are all defenseless against long-range, instant death—as defenseless as a bareheaded man in an open car. j The word "defense" today really means "retaliation," for \ that is the only means men have so far devised, short of world- i wide disarmament, for keeping the dogs of war at bay. In the long run, it may be that this very weakness will be the source of our greatest security. For jjust as the only real protection against an unbalanced j assassin is to devise a society in which mental instability is I treated in childhood (which almost happened with Lee Oswald) ! and in which the seeds of hate and extremism are never allowed \ to take root, so the only real protection against an ICBM is to j build a world where such weapons do not exist because they are unthinkable.

By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (API — The wise crowd had it figured that 7, the i Mary Tyler Moore would get squeezed out of the picture on "The Dick Van Dyke Show." They figured wrong. The girl with the triple name would have seemed a prime candidate for oblivion amid such hard-sell characters as Dick Van Dyke, Rose Marie and Morey Amsterdam. Yet she has managed to emerge em integral part of the situation comedy, which is enjoying a new burst of popularity in its third season on CBS. "I knew it would be a hazard working with Dick, Rose Marie and Morey, who had all been schooled in night clubs," she said. "Rut I thought I could hold my own because I had i I something the others didn't have '—dramatic training." Mary got the roll of Dick's; wife thanks to Danny Thomas' long memory. She once tried out j for the role of his daughter, but I lost out to Penny Parker because she had too much sophistication and too little resemblance. When the Van Dyke show was being packaged, Danny suggested Iter for it, "I grabbed at it," she said. I "A series seemed to offer what an arlivss dreams of: Security. 1 had been working pretty steadily in all the shows but at that point I would have accepted any series even if it meant merely answering the phone with 'Dr. Casey's office' every week." With "The Dick Van Dyk< Show" near the top of the ratings, it looks destined for several more seasons. That's all right with Mary. She works four days a week at a healthy salary and makes outside appearances: she'll do throe with Danny Kaye this season.

Detective Bernard Kay arrested Joseph A. Valfre, 40, and Warren A. Meyer, 17, Nov. 26 for loitering on a South Side stret. He said they used the radios to transmit results of horse races from tracks to one of the men. who then hurried to a bookie joint whore a bet could be placed before the bookie knew which horses won. Sentencing w a s withheld Thursday in Municipal Court after the men asked for a new trial. NEW YORK (AP) - Police capitulation to the glare of pu- publicity deprived Lee Harvy Oswald not only of any chance for a fair trial, but his life as well claims the American Civil Liberties Union. If Oswald had been convicted of assassinating President Kennedy, the courts likely would have thrown out the verdict because of prejudicial publicity, the organization said. "From the moment of his arrest until his murder two days later, Oswald was tried and convicted many times over in the newspapers, on the radio, and over television by the public statements of the Dallas law en­ forcements officials," said the statement issued Thursday by John de J. Pemberton Jr., executive director of the ACLU. "Where in Dallas, or anywhere else in the state or nation for that matter, could there be found 12 citizens who had not formed a firm and fixed opinion that he was guilty?" the statement said. The ACLU cited a decision by the U.S. Supreme Court which six months ago reversed the murder coviction of a Louisiana man because a 20-miniitc film of an interview between the defendant and the sheriff, in which the defendant confessed, was shown thre times on television. The ACLU said police agreement to transfer Oswald from one jail to another in a manner to suit the convenience of the news media exposed him to the very danger that took his life. His murder might have been averted, the ACLU said, if he had had a lawyer who had objected to the public transfer. In Dallas, Police Capt. Glenn King said Oswald was advised of his rights by at least three lawyers and that there was no violation of his civil liberties. Robt. Taft Jr. Runs For Senate CLEVELAND (AP) - Rep. Robert Taft Jr., R-Ohio, became a candidate today for the U.S. Srnatc, where his late father gained national and international renown. The 46-year-old Cincinnatian announced at a news conference his candidacy to run for the Senate seat now held by Democratic Sen. Stephen M. Young. Young has not declared his intentions for 1961, but is expected to seek re-election. Taft has at least one challenger, Secretary of State Ted W. Brown, for his party's nomination. Brown became a candidate Nov. 5. Taft is the son of Robert A. Taft, who served in the Senate from 1939 until his death in 1953 and won the title of "Mr. Republican." He is a grandson of the late President and Chief Justice William Howard Taft. HUMOR QUICK THINKING The customs man looked through an old gentleman's luggage and located a flask of whiskey.

South decided to try to count the hand and started by running off three clubs. East shed the deuce of hearts on the third club whereupon South tried the diamonds and spades only to find that neither suit broke. However, South had acquired his count. West had started with two spades, four diamonds and five clubs and that left him exactly two hearts. Therefore East had started with five hearts. This made the odds 5 to 2 In favor of finding East with the queen of hearts so South cashed dummy's king and finessed his jack, whereupon West took the trick with the queen and proceeded to take the last two tricks with the jack of diamonds and eight of clubs. South had played the hand fairly well, but not well enough. The heart finesse wasn't necessary. He was right to take his top cards in clubs, diamonds and spades to start, but after doinc; this he should simply have led his last spade. This would force East into the lead and since East would be down to hearts and nothing else, East would have had to lead a heart whereupon it would not make any difference where the queen of hearts was held.
