Vernon, Illinois A JFK Death Causes Movie, TV Changes By BOB THOMAS AP Movle-Tclovlslon Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - Movie and television schedules continue to get a shaking up In the wake of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. The tragedy came at a lime when the movie companies were making several films on political matters, something that Hollywood had avoided in recent years. "Dr. Strangelove," a satirical treatment of an atomic conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States starring Peter Sellers and George C. Scott, was originally scheduled for a premiere last week. It was postponed until Jan. 29, when it will open in New York, London and Toronto. "Fail Safe," a straight-faced treatment of an atomic war with Henry Fonda as a young prestdent, remains scheduled for summer release. If Paramount had Intentions of putting out "Seven Days in May" before year's end for Motion Picture Academy consideration, the idea has been abandoned. It will be released at the end of February. The film concerns a military attempt to take over the presidency and stars Fredric March, Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster. "The Best Man" a study of convention politics, will be out in May and June. It has undergone several cuts of references to the Kennedys. Henry Fonda is a candidate in this one. "Take Her, Sh;.'s Mine," currently in release, had a lew lines about the Kennedys cut. Warners has scheduled "Kisses For My President" for election day, 196-1. It stars Polly Bergen as the president and Fred MacMurray as her First Man. The studio said there were no topical gags in it. Warners' decision to withdraw "PT 109" from release has drawn a few complaints from cilizens who would like to see the film of the late president's war heroism. As a spokesman pointed out, the necessity of advertising and charging admission for the movie would appear to be capitalizing on the tragedy. All of the television networks have reviewed the films, tapes Financier To Face The Music NEW YORK (AP) — Earl Belle, fugitive Pittsburgh financier who fled to Brazil, returned here today and was met upon arrival toy two FBI agents. Belle chose to return to the United Stales and face business fraud charges rather than remain In Rio De Janeiro and face bad check charges, according to Brazilian police. A representative of Interpol, the international police agency, accompanied the former financial "boy wonder" on the flight from South America. Belle was permitted to remain in Brazil because that country has no ratified extradition treaty with the United States. However, the Brazilian Justice Ministry started a process against Belle in September 1962 in connection with his visa status. The ministry also denied his request for Brazilian citizenship. TOOK UP HER HOBBY LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP)—A heart attack led to a new hobby and eventually a batch of blue ribbons for 59-year-old Otis Livingston, a Louisville accountant and loan company treasurer. While recovering, Livingston watched his wife work on a needlepoint chair cover. Since he took up the needle and began making handbags and chair covers, Livingston has won 14 blue ribbons at Kentucky and Texas state fairs plus 11 others for second and third prizes. to eliminate dialogue of situations that might be untimely or offensive. An entire Joey Bishop show that featured Vaughn Meader in a Kennedy Impersonation had to be scrapped. Meader also was eliminated from the Record Academy special. Movies and television have fared better than the magazines with their distant deadlines. Many are in print with untimely and scripts of upcoming shows articles.

Washington Column Peter Edson Congress Record Shows Need for New Methods BY PETER KOSON Washing-ton Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA)— Every new day's news out of Washington piles up more evidence on the need for complete congressional reorganization.

M. EVERY NIGHT make judgments till all sides of every case are heard. But when congressmen of the standing of Rep. Wayne L. Hays, D- Ohio, and Rep. John W. Byrnes, R-Wis„ become involved in cases of unethical conduct and conflict of interect, idols are shattered. The charge that Byrnes Invested In a mortgage Insurance company after being- Instrumental in getting it a beneficial tax rilling from Internal Revenue Service may impair this Wuo ribbon congressman's standing as bin state's favorite son presidential candidate. The fact, that the now-dismissed Senate majority clerk Robert G. (Bobby) Baker was also a stockholder in this company rubs off on the standing of Byrnes—House GOP Policy Committee chairman and ranking Ways and Means Committee member—even though there is no direct association. Congressmen can't be counsel for constituents. HAYS EXPLAINS that he had to take a tri-lingual House restaurant; waiter to a North Atlantic Treaty Parliamentarians' conference because no other staff assistant was available. Accepting this at face val- us, it is still a pretty damning indictment of the poor quality of House committee professional staffing. The questionable part of this junket, however, was not so much thei hard-working waiter- translator but the wives of seven of the nine congressmen- delegates. What were they doing on tills government transport plane flight? Speaking of bad staffing, this was what got the House Judiciary Committee in its jam over writing the civil rights bill, now tied up in Rules Committee. Disregarding President Kennedy's request and Department of Justice recommendations on what constituted a workable bill, the House Judiciary Commit Ice in executive sessions came up with a completely unenforceable bill. If there had been better staff work, this snarl would not have dovelou- ed. THE NOW HIGHLY INVOLVED Bobby Baker case gives the Senate an excuse to wander off on another lengthy investigation excursion. The net effect is to distract public attention from more important pending business. Tliis is a favorite congressional detour. Billie Sol Estes— remember?—involved in government surplus storage and acreage allotment scandals 20 months ago, is finally called to Washington for an appear mice before the Senate Permanent Investigating subcommittee. This is long after the courts have passed sentence on fraud charges against him He is now free on ball, pending appeal. What good can come of the Senate probe? Also, the investigating committee headed by Sen. John L.

And rarely has the outpouring been so much in one key. Optimism, restrained but assured, is sounded by the greal majority. They have plenty of current j statistics to cite in their belief j that the momentum of the j business upswing is strong and as yet practically unchallenged. They have hope that past feelings of edginess between business and government can bo eased. They even see signs that the international climate may be improving. Heartening is the evidence that public confidence hasn't been shaken by the uncertainties inevitably accompanying the changeover in the federal administration. Retail sales have recovered after a period of faltering. Industrial orders have held up. So have production schedules. Some top executives have indicated sizable expansion plans for 1964 arc unchanged. As always, the most caution by individual businessmen is used when forecasting the trend of the national economy in general. Next, the problems of their particular industry may be stressed. But almost all are sure that their own companies are likely to see still better times in 1964 than in 1963. The current feeling of well being in general is summed up by the economists of the Morgan Guaranty Trust Co. of New York: "General business activity is still trending upward, paced by a brisk tempo of holiday trade and a continuation of the automobile industry's remarkable performance. "Pushed hard in the closing weeks of the year, auto output apears certain to exceed 214, million units for the full fourth quarter, a mark never before attained in any three - month period. And with retail demand for cars remaining strong (fourth quarter sales should approximate 2 million), a carryover into 1964 of this potent stimulus to a wide range of supplier industries is indicated." The First National City Bank of New York generalizes: "With widespread confidence in the future, and with a blend of fiscal and monetary policies dedicated to achieving economic growth without inflation, the economy can advance to new heights in the months ahead." that Congress Is working hard. It Is—but not on legislation. Of 13 appropriation bills to finance the government during the fiscal year which began last July 1, only six have been passed. This is bad management by any book. SEN. THOMAS <T. DODD, D-Conn., has withdrawn his stinging criticism of Senate leadership in both parties and apologized for his outburst. But there was much truth in what he said, as the record of this Congress proves. The real mystery Is how much longer the public will put up with (his kind of legislative clllly dallying. The only recourse suggested so far Is complete congressional reorganization. If not that, let the voters east their ballot* In 1004 against anyone now holding public office. The theory is that with a thorough housecleaning and a brand new bunch in Washington after January 1965, something might get done that would bo in keeping with the times. FIGHT TB WITH CHRISTMAS SEALS "Actually, I don't need all of them for homework. I just carry them as a status symbol!" AS HE EXPECTED MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) —Sheriff Al Lantrip used a bit of psychology in capturing four men who were gambling in the Nortonville School. He drove to the school and knocked on the back door. Then he dashed around to the front and was waiting with open arms when the gamblers came running outside. . W . ONTGOAAERY WARD 315 So.
