Y. Iff! — A visitor In the National Tennis championships owned to some curi iy as why Jarbslav. Drobny, the man of many countries who boat he world's best in this year':' Wimbledon classic, had not been nvitcd to compote in out- sliow- price. II was suggested that tht.- absence of the onetime Czech aco eft a. gaping hole in the entry ist. 'Oh, we invited him, all right," •eplied an official with a touch of asperity. 'We invited him, but wo couldn't offer him the Hind of money he's making playing every veek in one'of Ihose resort tournaments in Italy and France." Did he mean to imply that a sterling amateur such as Drobny, ioldcr ' of tennis' . most coveted crown, actually placed a money value on his services that he 'elt no overpowering desire to win the U. S. 'title too? 'What d6 you think?" came the retort. 'All we could offer him was the usual transportation and 15 per day. That isn't much of an inducement to a player who can demand and get up to $500 every week. You' can't blame Drobny too •nuch when /you • realize it's his .ivelihood." That was pretty blunt talk, coming from an official of the amateur game. He conceded that it was, and added thai maybe it was time .lie public knew what was going on in the net world — not that it didn't already know 'j.insiderable. "Let me tell you what happened in Italy this summer," he said. "They have a professional promoter, or entrepreneur, who puts on tournaments for all the big resorts. His name is Delia Vida, and he also promotes boxing. What he does is get the Italian federation to sanction a tournament, and then re does the rest. He figures how much he can pay the players, on a sliding scale, of course, and he goes out and gets them. 'Well, he had Fausto Gardini, the bust of the Italian Davis Cup players, signed up for a tournament at Florence. It meant a lot of lire for Fausto. Then the Davis Cup committee advised him he would be ••-•xpccted to do some playing for his country tlie same week as the Florence event, nt the iisual $15 per dium. 'What was Fausto to do? He sat down and wrote them wrote, rnind you that lie would be happy to play Davis Cup if they would only make up the loss he tv'uikl incur .by not playing at Florence. It put the officials on the spot. They like to go along with their players, but here they had something in writing. They had to suspend Cardini for six months, and it was rather difficult for them to explain without telling about the promoter. 'It's jus as though we would Jurn our tournament schedule over to Ned Irish of Madiion Square Garden and let him pay the players. Some of our tournaments undoubtedly do slip money under the table to a few players, but at least We don't sanction the practice. We arc in the game because we love it, and il. costs somu of us a lot of money." .By this lirne ouv man, who preferred to remain anonymous, was breathing pretty hard. "A couple of our good young players lire over then: now," he said. "They'll ncvor come back as long. as they can make the kind of money they are. Art Larsen says he's got an agreement with our association that he'll stay over there next summer too and get his 'share' 1 of the gravy. 'If true, that's great. What if he should win this trounament? We wouldn't even hnvo our defending champion hero next summer." Hollywood finally Finds Lewis, Clark By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (#) Hollywood is discovering those famed discoverers Lewis and Claik. It never rains but what it pours. For 50 years, the movie industry virtually ignored the saga of Lewis and Clark, one of the great adventures in American history. Then , suddenly everyone hops on the bandwagon. The Motion Picture Asn. which records suggested .titles to avoid conflicts among the studios, reports that no less than 18 titles have teen registered for Lewis and. Clark movies. Warner Brotly- ers announced plans for such a [ilrn in Cinerama and laid aside five possible titles for it. Walt Disney registered two titles, as did Howard Welsch and Clover Productions. Columbia. RKO, MGM, 20th-Fox, Harold Hecht and Joseph Bernhard have reserved one apiece. Of course, all of thcso films won't be made. But movie audiences will be getting a sizable supply of the Lewis and Clark .lives and legends. First of the films will be "Two Captains Wet," with Fred MacMurry and Carlton Heston as the famed explor ersT.hose carry producers Pine and Thomas kept the project secret so they could get the film to the market before their competitors. Here are some of the interesting facts uncovered by research for the production: President Jefferson bought the Louisiana Territory fr.r $23,213|OUO from Napoleon, who needed the money. The President made an ideal selection fo.- the two men to explore the vast region. Meriwether. Lewis had been his secretary. The 33-year-old Virginian was a lieutenant in the Army. H had served with his good friend, Capt. William Clark! 29 year-old Kentuckian, Jefferson apparently meant Lewis to be in command of the expedition. But Lewis accepted Clark as his co-leader saying, "Your situation will be in all respects precisely such as my own." : The cost of the trip: $2,500. Congress appropriated . that minor sum for supplies. Most of the men wore on regular salary with the Army. The group left St. Louis May 14, 1804, returned there Sept. 23, 190G. The crew: Lewis and Clark, 3 sergeants, 23 privates, Clark's Negro servant York. OUT OF DOORS with By Joe Stetson "A picture of a tolling dog is what she said," insisted Mack, when I expressed surprise. "She said some one had written a story about dogs and she hud to get a picture of one for the editor in order to Illustrate the story." Sometimes ' a story about tolling dogs ernorgo's from the pen of a man. \Vlio really knows the dog field. But tolling is a function or a profession and 'not a breed. Trying to 'run a picture of a tolling dog is> prully much like publishing the picture of n lawyer so that the reader will know what lawyers look like. Trim, tliore are certain characteristics which are often a requirement tor doing a job properly.

Police dogs are dogs trained for police worH and may be re- criuted for it from the ranks of the German or Belguim shepherds Doberman pinscher, Rottweiler,'or some other moderately large, intelligent, and agile breed. The job of tolling — running back and forth, back and forth u- long the shore, apparently aimlessly until the curiosity of ducks or geese is aroused so that they swim clpser and yet closer as they try to figure put just whut strange business the dog is about —is done bv dogs U - ame<i for the MMM&m The clojj, to be tu'livo and to have plonly uf endurance for a long spell of tolling, shpulct.be smallish !J5unie favor a foxlikc -dog, feeling i that if 1lio dog is mistaken for a fox, there is loss likelihood of associating the dog with man.

In Nova Scotia, where some tolling-dog tradition still lingers, some dogs resembling small golden retrievers' have be(|ii more recently used to lure birds within gunshot The trainers of tolling dogs in tliis region evidently incline to the "dog that looks like a fox" school, bul any .bright, agile dog c,an be trained to toll and will be just as effective as the extent of the ability of his "act" to arouse the curiosity of the birds. by N.$A Service) , AMERICAN LEAGUE New Vork Brooklyn Milwaifkee Cincinnati Philadelphia St. Louis Chicago Pittsburgh W L P—ct.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON I/W — After a week of worry and soul searching, U. S. officials arc fairly confident today that z formula will be found in a reasonable lime for arming West Germany as a partner in the anti-Communist defense of Western Europe. But. there is tar less confidence that this formula will promole Eu^'jj, ropean unity. Some other device may have to be found for that. . As Washington views the situation, the fvacedy rf French destruction of the proposal for a Eu ropeati Defense Community is that EDC would have served both de- sifliir,. Diplomatic authorities say privately the first dangers of liie EDC defeat apparently have been weathered successfully. ft\ There had been deep concern*" licrc about a violent rcnciion in West Germany, including nngry statements against France. out bursts of extreme German nationalism and the like State Department officials said that has ncit happened. They regard as encouraging the modcrp.te tone of German reaction, based on the them'! of getting on with the task of strengthening Europe'; defenses and unity. QO Another fear was that Amcri can reaction might take a violent swing. Some officials now concede that perhaps EDC was oversold ns a soluMon for Europe's troubles. If it failed, there was always a certainly ihat some other European clefun.se plan, however much less desirable, would have to be found.

Wa»hbtirn State Tax Resources Near Exhaustion; Need lieIp at Local Level This is a pretty grim day for small fry — it's back to school them. lit there's an echo in the back- ound which spells trouble for eir elders also. No sooner had a tumult and shouting of the litical campaign died down than e began to read statistical reports om Little Rock forecasting that e .state government will have Jo is'Jf'an additional 12 million tlol- •rs annually for the public school '•stem. • A good deal of the campaign ••atory concerned Itself with giving He people cither additional Hjencfits" or relieving them from dsting taxation — but no one lid anything about new or higher xes to pay for all this, much less jvering the "12 millions" for hicjj the drums have now begun Mat. Many thoughtful citizens have scognized for a long time that cal government in Arkansas has insistently fallen down on the b of assessing property thorough and raising a reasonable portion f revenue at the local level, caus- ig an cver-incroasing tax burden ) be thrown on the state. For this reason Proposed Con- tituMonal Amendment No. 43 was ut'^hrough the legislature in 1953 nd referred to the people, who will ote on it this November. No. 43 roposes to equalize ad valorem ax assessments throughout the ;ate, and to put on tho lax books uch property as is not now being ssessed at all. No. 43 changes the ssessing base — but it does not liange the taxpayer's charge in ollars. If the assessment goes up 'e..millage comes down autornat- '<: It is a fair and just proposal, j leretofore when the millage has! een raised by vote of the people ssessing totals would drop, with- ut much gain in dollar revenue — causing Arkansas to thrust upon ts state government one of the eaviest per capita tax burdens in ic nation. How heavy that burden is ompared to the rest of America s-^-scussed by an editorial in the Awf&nsas Democrat, • quoting gurcs from the -Arkansas- Public ixpcnditure Council. The result if the failure of local government o reform its tax assessing methods — which No. 43 would correct — ias been this, according to the rYPEC: In the decade from 1043 to 1953 the annual budget at the state-government level has grown from 43 millions to near- Jfe, 106 millions. To sustain this budget the slate government has had to dig directly into the income of all citizens with a variety of special taxes — sales, 'income, excise, luxury, etc. The state government now levies in all taxes a total of 5.6 per cent of the average Arkansan's income — compared with only 3.8 per cent as the average for all The state tax "take" in Arkansas is higher than in Missouri, Texas, and Tennessee — the only states with a still higher "take" are Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Mississippi. And our 5:6 per cent figure is a little above the average for all six states. It is obvious that Arkansas is close to the point of exhausting th^potential tax revenue which is resizable from special state levies. Our taxes on tobacco and liquor arc already at the peak. The 2 per cent sales tax can't be increased without causing widespreac damage to Arkansas merchants, who already are having to mee stiff competition from sales-tax-free Texas. And a hike in the sta'te income tax rate would be resistec bitterly by payroll employes who are already stripped by the fed eiflfi* income tax collector. I know of only two remedies foi this crisis. One is something the readers o The Stnr are already familial with: To seize the liquor industry and establish a state-ownec dispensary, such as 17 other stales are already operating. This migh raise between 12 and 15 million dollars annually. But il would be fought by the churches and the l.njjl'ior people. •' The alternalive is to quit press ing the state government for helj and find more of our tax monej at the local level. That is th< Jong-range objective of Proposed Amendment No. 43. Your edito knows something about it, as < member of the Joint Tax Revisioi Committee which drafted the original recommendation, back ir November 1952. iJJJhe Arkansas Democrat take a view similar to ours. Says tlv Democrat in its edition of Saturday {•September 4: "It's time for a halt, not a rise in slate taxes-. But the schools must have more money.

He nothing bul he doesn't know how to do nothing. He feels he ought to be doint< something, no matter how little, tcj earn mis day's pay no matter how small. It isn't his conscience that bothers him. It's his fine smise of artistry- He lias perfected the art of stretching about Iwo hours of honest toil over an eight-hour day. To do this takes careful planning, a great deal of anergy, and considerable acting ability. Then along conies Labor Day and ruins his careful routine. He can't spend the day happily ducking his work, as usual, because he isn't even on the job. He can't impress his boss by picking un a letter, rattling it and iokin.j at it iteroly. The boss around. fine and stamp around with an important looks on his face to impress ,he hired hands with how busy and "iard-\yorking he is. Both boss and hired hand know low to act in tha office, and in the ordinary business office there is more dramatic actim 1 , than in three Broadway shows. But neither knows how to kill time except when working. "What'll I do all day?" each asks himself. Chances are they do the same thing. They load the wife and kids in the car, spend four fours caught in a traffic jam going nowhere, and another five hours in u traffic jam coming from nowhere back homo. Thus they get about as much done, as they do on most work days? but they miss the office audience. Actually, however, Labor Day can be fun if you remember MarH Twain's wise definition of the difference between f sW work an4 dusty arenna. It was n big one, 4 years old, Pat began playing him daringly. "In her capo work she was pulling the bull in awfully close," Blninsaid. "Then she 'fixed' him." They call it the "fis" when the bull, after being fought for some time, makes a past wheels around stops and states at the bullfighter. The bull usually stands there a while, and it is customary at this point for the matador to turn his back on the bull, strut and take bows.
