Wilson, who conferred Mon- day with President Johnson, made clear at a news confer- ence that on these issues there will be no backing away from the British stand if his party wins the next election in Bri- tain. Wilson said the Labor party leadership is aware of argu- ments by U.S. officials that de- nial of trade with Cuba would help keep the Cuban-based threat of Communist aggression under control. :'But it's always been the tra- ditional policy of British govern- ments not to use trade embar- goes in support of political dif- Wilson said.

That is according to lectures at the Seventh Day Adventist Church five day quit smoking plan which went into the sec- ond session here on Monday night. The best remedy to beat the "light up" urge is to take deep rhythmic breathing exer- cises; repeat the slogan "I choose not to smoke" then get up and take a walk or call the partner in the program which is designed similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. It was also emphasized that the coffee intake during this per- iod be cut down. Caffeine, con- tained in coffee, and nicotine are first cousins. They react simi- larly on the nervous system. Soda and carbonated drinks al- so stimulate the desire for a cigarette, and also tea, but to a lesser degree. In tht morning if it has been necessary to drink a cup of cof- fee in order to wake up, Dr. Frank Damazo a lecturer, has another suggestion which serves the same purpose. It is a "cold- mitten an ice cold washcloth or washmitten, rub- down to stimulate circulation. This vascular exercise should be done until the skin turns pink. Begin first using tepid water then work up in a few days to ice cold water. Not only does this aid in pepping up the in- dividual as coffee would, but al- so it increases the number of red blood cells in the body and improves resistance to colds and sinus troubles. The "I choose not to" smokers are in their second day now. Though some didn't last the en- tire first day without a cigarette they managed to cut smoking down to a bare minimum. And, because they had one or two cigarettes, they don't have to feel that they have lost the war against smoking. They have just lost one battle in that war and by choosing not to smoke again they are resuming the fight by reaffirming their origi- nal choices, the class was told. The purpose of the films and lectures is to bring the facts to smokers and make them in- telligent nonsmokers. Cites Statistics A major portion of night's program at the Seventh Day Adventist School was de- voted to lung cancer and its relationship to smoking. In 1964 some persons in this country will die from lung can- cer, said Dr. Damazo, local surgeon. The growth in the number of persons dying yearly from cancer of the lung is not seen in any other type ot can- cer, and it has one of the low- est cure rates of any of the other cancers. Chances of get- ting lung cancer is 1000 per cent greater if a person smokes. Dr. Damazo said, however, that it has been seen that though a person is a heavy smoker, if he discontinues smok- ing his chances of acquiring the disease do diminish. Persons who smoke are cutting, on the average, nine years off of their lives as compared to the non- smoker. "When you stop smok- ing, you start improving your chances for a longer stat- ed Dr. Damazo. The cells in the central nervous system are stimulated by nico- tine. Then, however, the nicotine begins to suppress, making the person calm, taking away a feel- ing of nervousness. If after a person hasn't had a cigarette for a time, he begins to be- come nervous or tense again, it is his nervous system calling for another cigarette. This is a sure sign of addiction and even more reason why the deeply intrench- ed habit should be ended. U. S. Adviser Is Killed In Viet Nam TAN CHAU, South Viet Nam (AP) Communist guerrillas severely mauled two crack Vietnamese airborne battalions today, inflicting the heaviest casualties on government forces in a single engagement in months. A U.S. adviser was among the dead. In an hour-long battle which one U.S. officer described as the "damnedest firefight I have seen since World War 85 government troops were wound- ed and 15 killed, including an American captain advising an airborne battalion. Vietnamese authorities claim more than 100 Viet Cong guer- rillas were killed in the engage- ment, which began soon after dawn. But American advisers at the scene could net confirm the report The battle took place in Kien Phuong Province beside the Me- kong River, barely yards from the Cambodian border. The airborne battalions were searching for a guerrilla bat- talion which was known to be operating in the border area. After breaking off the fight, the Communists were reported to have headed toward Cam- faodia. U.S. helicopters could not fly in because of a rule prohibiting operation of U.S. aircraft closer than three miles to the border.

"WANT ADS" Call 662-1177 FREDERICK MONDAY THRU SATURDAY 9 A. M. To P. M. ANNAPOLIS pos- sibility of the traditional city- county fight shaped up in the Maryland Legislature today over a plan to reshape the state's congressional districts. Drawn up by a 16-raember committee of legislative lead- ers Saturday, the plan brought complaints and a threat of ap- peal to the voters from big- county interests. Their chief objections lay in a proposal which would tend to assure Baltimore City's reten- tion of its three congressional seats by expanding city districts into Anne Arundel and Balti- more counties. The plan had been regarded as politically practical and con- stitutionally sound by commit- tee members. It was drawn up under court pressure to redraw present districts on a population basis or force all congressional candidates to run statewide. After hearing the protests Monday, Senate President Wil- liam S James, head of the spe- cial redistricting committee, said he did not plan to hold an- other meeting until after the scheduled Thursday adjourn- ment of the Legislature. Sens. James A. Pine, D-Bal- timore, and Joseph W. Alton Jr., R-Anne Arundel, objected that the committee plan sliced their counties up into too many pieces merely to enable the three city districts to come up to popula- tion requirements To br.ng the three city dis- tricts up to the committee agreed said James, to take portions of Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties. To bring the all-Eastern Shore First District up to someplace near the norm, it agreed to add St. Marys and Calvert counties and part of Anne on the western shore of Chesa- peake Bay in southern Mary- land. The biggest chunk of Bal- timore County would dominate another district including Har- ford County. A fourth piece of Baltimore County, plus a third piece of Anne Arundel County, would help make up another district. Other components would be all of Carroll and Howard and part of Montgomery County. The rest of Montgomery, tre northern rural area, would be thrown in with Western Mary- land. Pine and Alton threatened to petition the plan to referendum if it is ever enacted. STILL UNCONSCIOUS George William Eckenrode, son of Mrs. George Eckenrode, of Keymar, who was found un- conscious Sunday in his car parked with its engine running on Virginia 725 near Round Hill, is reported today as still in critical condition at Loudoun County Hospital in Leesburg, Va. Eckenrode has not re- gained consciousness, a spokes- man at the hospital said. Brown Became 111 Today Chief Defense Counsel Objects; New Judge Seeks To Complete Jury DALLAS, Tex. sub- stitute judge, J. Frank Wilson, began presiding over the mur- der trial of Jack Ruby today after a long argument from the bench with Ruby's chief de- fense counsel, Melvin M. Belli. Belli protested, on several legal points, against Wilson's sitting on the bench for Judge Joe B. Brown, who came to his chambers this morning but be- came ill and his doctor ordered him home to bed. Brown said, "I've got an awfully bad cold." Belli objected on several grounds to Judge Wilson re- placing Judge Brown. The de- fense attorney argued: That he has a continuing mo- tion to transfer the trial away from Dallas; he said this is "cumulative with each and that Judge Wilson could not possibly have knowledge of all that has gone into the rec- ord in the trial which is now in the third week. At the same time, Belli ar- gued, while Judge Brown is ab- sent "he cannot act on material presented hi his absence." Sev- eral times Judge Wilsoa cut Belli short with a curt: "That's enough. Take your seat." "Could I Belli began. "Take your the judge repeated. "When the court says to you to take your seat it means take your seat." Belli sat down. At another point, Judge Wil- son told Belli, "There's no use belaboring the issue." When Belli raised the ques- tion of additional peremptory challenges, by which attorneys can discharge prospective jur- ors without stating a reason, Wilson said he would consider that question when it arises. He tojd Belli: wouldn't require any de- fendant of any race, creed or color to accept an unfair juror." Dist. Atty. Henry M. Wade rose and said, ''Judge Brown refused him any more chal- lenges." Belli then said he was formal- ly objecting "to your honor sit- ting in this and to Wilson's assuming discretion about granting any more per- emptory challenges. Ruby is on trial for slaying Lee Harvey Oswald, accused assassin of President Kennedy. The defense has exhausted its allotted 15 peremptory chal- lenges. Judge Brown had grant- ed three extras which also have been used and he said Monday that he would not allow Belli any more. The legal instrument by which Judge Wilson replaced Judge Brown was signed by Dallas A. Blankenship, presid- ing judge of the First Adminis- ;rative Judicial District of Texas. The administrative as- signment said it was "for the period beginning March 3, 1964, ror the disposition of such mat- ers as may come before him and terminating when such matters have been concluded." Times Have Changed Securing Babysitters Has Now Boomed Into A Big Business Across The Country NEW YORK (AP) To get acquainted with her neighbors, it used to be that a new resi- dent would borrow a cup of sugar. Now she goes over and asks, do you know any good babysitters? It breaks the ice and might turn up someone like Margie Alexander, 16. She marched out her four charges, aged 1 to 7, before the Harry Walsh home at La Honda, Calif., collapsed in flames. Or the Kansas City teen-ager who teaches "Mrs. Harold Mor- gan's three oldest children bak- ing while she sits. The search for the perfect babysitter is a commonly shared quest of American moth- ers, an Associated Press survey showed. But clinkeis are found as often as nuggets.

Babysitting has long since passed being the exclusive en- terprise of relatives and teen- agers. Metropolitan areas have thriving organized sitter serv- ices. In Brooklyn, a department store conducts a training pro- gram for sitters, offering such advice as "expect a mess with young children" when eating. Frequently parents band to- gether and provide sitting serv- ice for each other, such as the organization at Emory Univer- sity where ledgers record the hours used and the hours owed. Prices range from 35 cents an hour in Boise, Idaho, to an hour in Los Angeles. The average fee across the country seems to be 50-75 cents an hour. With this KO certain privileges, such as and television rights. KWSPAPLRl
