Editorial The Error Of Snap Judgments THE SLENDER YOUNG WOMAN who walked away from the ' White House a bare fort-night after her husband was cruelly struck down will be remembered as a First Lady unique in American history. Millions in America and the world saw the incredible courage and dignity with which she met the ordeal of John F. Kennedy's violent death and his solemn burial. It is not clear how many, particularly in her own country, grasped the full import of Jacqueline Kennedy's illustrious example. For the hard truth is that, until tragedy struck, countless Americans had been sadly misjudging her as a frivolous, flighty, glamor-conscious, pleasure-seeking woman who graced the White House poorly All the solid evidence was against this harsh verdict. But, unhappily, many Americans—perhaps many in the world—are given to measuring people according to shallow stereotypes. In Jacqueline Kennedy 's case, the stereotype was made of such fragments as these: a "breathless" voice that sounded to some like affectation, pictures of her in such informal attire as Capri pants, or with wind-tousled hah", or laughing gaily on some foreign beach. The root truth is that she is a woman of high breeding and great sensitivity, well versed in literature and the arts, independent of spirit (she held her own against the army of Kennedys), a devoted mother determined that her spotlighted children should have as nearly a normal life as possible, a faithful, dutiful wife to a man who held the world's most demanding job. Far from treating her White House years as a time for frivolity, she used them as fruitfully as any First Lady in the nation's whole history. She set about with unmatched intelligence and dedication to make of the White House a living repository of all the best In the nation's background. Her restoration efforts were remarkable for their taste and thoroughness, and the new First Lady, Mrs. Lyndon Johnson, is wisely urging her to continue them. Mrs. Kennedy also made of the White House a center for the celebration of the arts, a place where the greatness of the spirit could bo honored again and again. Here came poets, dramatists, musicians, dancers of high fame. At no time did this make the White House less than a home for her, for her late husband and for their two children. Somehow it managed also to be school, playground and comfortable home all the while she was busy enhancing its symbolic image for the good of all Americans. This, then, is the woman whose character and quality were given supreme test in the searing, gruelling hours from midday, Nov. 22, until now. The manner in which she bore herself in that test was no surprise to anyone who had troubled to look beyond the fragile stereotype. She behaved exactly as she had always behaved— true to herself and those she loved. Now that millions have been awakened to her always visible qualities, perhaps they will move with greater care hereafter in judging not only the broad range of public figures, but their friends and associates as well. Jacqueline Kennedy should have taught us all to measure people not with surface labels, not by artificial standards which in fact are merely the appraiser's own, but by the only fair, gauge: fidelity to oneself, the best in oneself and in humanity.

By PETER EUSON Washington Correspondent Civil Rights Bill Petition Gives Johnson First Test- Newspaper Enterprise Association ASHINGTON—A first test on President Johnson's influence with Congress is shoping up on civil rights. The Johnson jjnal is simply to get Hit' ndnilnist ration's civil rights hill cleared by thr House Rules Committee before Christmas, lor floor action early next year. Octogenarian Howard VV. Smith, D-Vn., chairman of the Rules Committee, has made a flat .statement that he will not let the civil rights hill be reported out this year. He is sup- w ported in this position by southern Democrats, the House Republican leadership and a House GOP caucus. President Johnson has approved an effort by liberal Democrats to force the bill out of the Rules Committee for a floor vole. 'Phis can be done only by a petition signed by 218 of the 435 representatives. According to H o u s e rules this petition was not to bo placed in the well of the House for signing before Dec. 9 and cannot bp considered by the whole House before Dec. 23. This m iikes it a battle against time. Many congressmen want to adjourn the session for the Christmas holidays on Dec. 20. Some would like to push adjournment to Dec. 17 nr oven Dec. 14. Congress would then reconvene on Jan. 2. -o- -O- -0- Roy Wilkins, executive secretary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and chairman of the SO-organizatinn Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, thinks that the 218 signatures can bo obtained. NAACP and other Negro organizations have counted congressional noses on Ibis score often enough to know. Hut VViikins admits that he doesn't have absolute pledges to sign and that after 200, the going will be tough. So the out come will be close and il could be failure. Rut Wllkins says: "We won't make a Imw to anyone's Christmas vacation to get action tiiis year." In other words, lie wants Congress to work right through the Christmas holidays. Most conirressmen say there* isn't a chance. But Wilkins, speaking only for himself and not for his organization, says: ''This is a crusade. It can't be guided by cold realism. You have to believe in fairies and magic will be accomplished." This is like believing there will be another Christmas miracle this year. The political question is what will happen if there isn't a miracle. •o- o -o- WilU'nis promises retaliation at the polls in the 19R4 elections. Failure to sign the petition will place a congressman under suspicion, though it won't necessarily blacklist him. Rut he will have to have a good alibi. Failure to vote for civil rights legislation on final passage will subject a congressman (o N.AAC'P opposition. Wilkins says that a moratorium on direct political action of this kind has not speeded congressional passage of civil rights legislation in the past, i "This year's demonstrations 1 have sharpened appreciation of the issue," he adds.

BRANDSTADT, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Q — I am 35 and suffer from nausea, dizzy spells and fainting. I have been told that this is due to orthostatic hypoten sion. What is this? What causes it and is there any drug that might help me? A — Whenever a change of position from lying or sitting to standing causes a fall in blood pressure sufficient to produce the symptoms you mention, a diagnosis of orthostatic hypotension can bo made. What happens is that the lowered pressure prevents the brain from getting enough oxygen. This oftenh appens to people who have taken too largo a dose of a drug to control their high blood pressure and to victims of diabetes, multiple sclerosis and adrenal deficiency. In most victims, the cause is unknown. In treating this condition elastic stockings that reach to the hip and an abdominal binder help to keep all the blood from going to the foot and abdomen. Transfusions of dex- tran are sometimes necessary, but most victims can be benefited by treatment with drugs. Q — What is hemolytic streptococcus infection? Is il serious? Is it contagious? What is the usual treatment for it? A — The streptococcus is one i of the so-called pus formers and the hemolytic variety destroys red blood cells.

"We've cut down on the number of phone calls he can make and told him he can't have some of the visitors lie wanted," Sheriff Bill Decker said Monday. "He's not too happy about it." The sheriff reported earlier that. Ruby, 52, was a model prisoner. Meanwhile, Decker was thinking ahead to Feb. 3. Ruby is due to appear in Criminal District Court that day for trial on a charge of murdering Oswald. Decker will be responsible for the prisoner's courtroom safely, and the sheriff has received numerous suggestions. One proposal is (or Ruby to sit inside a capsule of bullet-proof glass while in court. There is a question in the minds of some lawyers, however, about how far Decker could go without risk that the Texas O/urt of Criminal Appeals would set aside a conviction. Lawyers speculate the appeals court would rule that a capsule of bullet-proof glass or other elaborate arrangements could influence jurors as they weigh a verdict. Defense counsel Tom Howard talked of seeking freedom on bond for Ruby after he shot Oswald in the City Hall basement Nov. 24. It appears now, hu«- ever, that Ruby will stay in the county jail until his trial.
