N a t i o n a l Cystic Fibrosis Research Foundation door-lo- Hoor drive to be held in Fay- fcttevllle Sept. 11, according to Joe ViUincs, chairman of the local chapter. J Villines said that there arc 40-60 known cases of cystic [i- hrosls in Arkansas and that the Inheritant lung disease which usually affects children results in death in 100 per cent of the cases. One in every 150 child- fen in the nation have the disease. t T h e disease is hereditary through a recessive gene and there is no lest to 'date that can determine the carrier, added Villines. . . · The Cystic Fibrosis Research Foundation has no salaried personnel and 98 per cent of its funds go to research of cystic fibrosis and other lung diseases of children, according to the HELEN HELP US By HELEN AND SUE BOTTEL local chairman. .Little Rock Is the home of one of the few Cystic Fibrosis Clinics in the nation. V i l l i n e s emphasized that although there is no known cure, early diagnosis and treatment relieves suffering and lengthens lives (the average life span being 14 years). The signs ot lung-damaging-disease are: recurrent wheezing, persistent coughing with excessive mucus, pneumonia more than ' once during childhood; good appetite but poor weight :gain and clubbing (enlargement of fingertips). · : · Persons wishing to donate funds to the foundation may send checks to the Cystic Fibrosis Savings Account at the First National Bank in Fayetteville. And persons interested in working during the door-to-Ioor drive should contact Joe Villines at 521-3834. DOUBLE FEATURE PROGRAM 3 SHOWS N1TELY CONTINUOUS FROM DARK Wives Accused Of Dissecting Husbands FIRST TIME TOGETHER! BOTH FILMED IN ARKANSAS Dear Helen: Would you please print this for wives like mine? That means most wives, judging from what 1 overhear. Listen to a covey of females yakking around a barbecue and .he conversation. is usually about husbands: "John eats like a horse and then. he..wonders why :lie .gains · weight." "My husband has this weird habit..." "His snoring- is unreal!" ". . .Just like a little kid, always wanting his own say." Women talk about their husbands as if they were children, and as often as not, right in front o f ' the poor guys. They compare" '/waist- · measurements, thinning hairlines, the way they dress, even how t h e y make love, I suspect.. , Yet if a husband .makes remarks about .bis':wife in public, all hell breaks loose when .hey. get home. .

The United States since has disentangled itself some, though far from completely. As for the offensive, it may have slowed or even hesitated, but it never stopped. It is on again righl iOW. -One of- the most painful chanters riti -American history began on 'Aug. 7, 1964; when Congress approved what would be known as the Tonkin Gulf Resolution. The vote in the Senate was 88-2, in the House. 416-0. The resolution's expressed aim was "to promote international peace and security in Southeast Asia." The effect was to permit. President Lyndon B. Johnson to intensly the Vietnam war and American involvement therein, at his discretion. As seen by Gen. William C. Westmoreland, newly assigned American commander in' Vietnam! the situation was this: The Viet Cong, strongly supported by Communist North Vietnam's regulars, controlled most of South Vietnam's rural areas. A series of military coups in Saigon had made-thai regime perilously unstable. The Communists were ;in grabbing distance of easy victory that would nullify years of American effort at a cost of more than $10 billion since the end of boat fleet and a petroleum storage area at Vinh, in the North Vietnamese ' panhandle, were iit,:[.the announced, purpose being' to signal Hanoi against "miscalculation" ' o f v American intent to' respond to attack. Two days later Congress gave the President carte blanche with the Tonkin Gulf resolution. The decision' would mean eventually that the original- billion American investment would swell toi more than $200 billion ia'another nine years. From about 20,000 American military men , on the scene in 1964, : the figure would be more than.500,000'at the peak of the war. The casualty figures among A m e r i c a n s , relatively in significant'up to the time of'lhj Tonkin Gulf, would stand at tlii end at 46,000 killed and 300,000 wounded. · . ; By conservative estimate, in those 10 years, perhaps 175,000 South Vietnamese troops were killed and 450,000 wounded possibly 900,000 North Vietnam ese and Viet Cong troops kille World War II. Ostensibly to gather intelligence on North Vietnamese movements of men and materiel southward, the .U.S. Navy was patrolling in the Tonkin Gulf. .By. American account, here's what happened: Ori Aug. 2, 28 miles off the and wounded. About 400,00 South Vietnamese civilian .rere killed and about 900,00 were wounded in the period b: conservative American est: mates. - . : ' · ' · · LAOS AND CAMBODIA Laos and.

Military morale ma have been permanently, affe'c ed. Economic consequence were heavy. One ironic result of the Toi kin Gulf episode was that in r ceiving the power of that res lution, Lyndon Johnson uli mately lost the power of tl presidency. It led to a situatii that helped persuade him not ek renomination in 1968 and ived the way for a Republican dminislraUon to succeed him'. .
