Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OtfFOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 298 YEAR, NO. 363 ABILENE, TEXAS, FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 8VX31 3Ay It u the season to salute the bride and groom and after we do, individually and collectively, let tu edge in a word in behalf of that harried woman cast in the role of The Mother of The Bride. Tne bridegroom's parents are lurking safely out there on the fringes. The bridegroom is in a stupor. .The bride in a trance and the bride's father long since lapsed into a financial coma. Only. The Mother of The Bride Is left to cope with the confu- aion. And, experts such as florists and preachers tell us, it takes a special, nerveless type to keep cclm, to retain her sense of Bior when caught up in the ufo- ceedin'gs and the protocol which bind the forma! wedding. Now, the rites of holy rnatri- .nwny, ceremonies much in vogue currently, are solemn and beautiful, tending to turn old ladies to tears, young ones to dreaming dreams. But the formal wedding, an elderly preacher declares from experience, is "a procession of crises the bigger the wed- ding, the longer the procession." .Some funny things do happen along the way. But, alas, the humor is often wasted on the harried principals. So these mothers who still don't think it was will not be iden- tified. There is this newspaperman in West Texas who has a wife who is gay, witty and charm- ing. The couple's one and only daughter got married. The mother was turned, presto, into a' serious and dedicated woman. Preparations for the wedding were precise. No detail of deco- ration, entertainment or cos- tume" .was, overlooked. bride, brides- maids and mother were just right. Papa's bank roll took a beat- ing. The big day came and the big moment. Only after it was all over did the father of .the bride get around to pointing out to his wife, "Say, honey. Look. "You forgot to take off that old tweed skirt and it's hanging down below your new dress." The rest of the story is this: The next day, being an alert journalist, the father wrote a funny story about his wife and her old tweed skirt. He is still trying to figure out why she al- most divorced him. Then there is another mother who overlooked nothing in prep- aration for daughter's wedding. Everything was beautiful and everything went perfectly, Except. The organist was given the Wrong cue. As the mother was started down the aisle the glorious mu- aic burst forth, "Here Comes the Bride." Many people get involved in big wedding, the preacher, who is essential; the florist, who doubles as a stage manager; even, the newspaper society writer, without whom there would be no clippings to pre- aerve for grandchildren. Some years ago our society writers came on an interesting wedding story by mail. The bride had given the nup- tial music. With the bridegroom at her tide she turned to the audience, lifted her voice and sang, "I'd Rather Have Jesus."

But he brand- shed the big stick of presidential pressure at a labor union threat- ening a major airlines strike. At a news conference studded with economic questions, Kennedy said he could not believe any busi- nessman would take pleasure in seeing a stock market slump or economic difficulties in order to gain some political benefit. This was in response to a news- man who said: "There is a. feel- ing in some quarters, sir, that big business is using the stock markel slump as a means of forcing you to come to terms with business.' Many businessmen have been hotly critical of Kennedy since he cracked down on U.S. Steel and forced it and other companies to rescind a price increase. As if to show the big stick can be wielded both ways, Kennedy talked tough Thursday to the AFL-CIO Flight Engineers Inter- national Association, threatening lo strike Pan American, Trans World and Eastern. In a statement read at his news conference, Ken- nedy said such ,a strike woulc cause serious damage to the wel- fare and economy of the public Noting that the union has ig r.ored an arbitration proposal by him, while the companies have accepted, he said; "I strongly urge the flight engineers to mee their responsibilities." Asked what he would do if the union did. not comply, he said 'We would then have to consider what would be the proper action.' The aircraft industry is a vest weket one as compared with Big Steel, but Kennedy said the strike would have a significant impact on our economy. He said: men are threat ening a strike which would cause the immediate layoff of some 60, 000 employes, the immobilization of 40 per cent of the nation's air line service, and the loss of over SI million a day from internation a! flights, which our balance o payments cannot afford."

A newsman called tention to a speech by Solicitor General Archibald Cox, who said t appears that eventually new nechanisms will be 'needed to give trie government an early 'oice when key industries and ua- ons tackle wage-price decisions.

JS' KIRK CHARGES 'RUBBER STAMP1 Zoning Bids Delayed By BILL McADA Reporter-News Staff Writer Five zoning requests were post- poned Thursday after City Com- missioner Truman Kirk charged that the commission'.and the Planning and Zoning Board "have become rubber stamps" for land' owners and developers wanting zoning changes. The motion to defer the requests "for further study" split the com- mission 2-2 and relegated the re- quests to next week's agenda when Mayor C. R. Kinard de- clined to cast a tie-breaking vote. The five zoning change requests were recommended for approval by the commission in a meeting of the Board earlier this month. Thursday's lack of action by the commission marked the first open rift in many months between the commission and the Board. Ordinarily, the commission ap- proves zoning changes recom more than a cursory examination. past action by the P4Z Beard and the commission. He said passage of the rezoning requests before the commission Thursday would "add more to the breakdown of our zoning structure. "We Are have to tighten up our ordinance i little ht toW hit fellow He suggested that some of the changes up for consideration may constitute "spot" zoning, a type of zoning change prohibited by state law. "But this is nothing new." he said. "We give zoning to anyone who asks for it." Take Issue Commissioners Wiley Gonnally and George Kaerwer took issue with Kirk on his remarks about the alleged "rubber stamp" ac- tions of the Board. "1 don't Kaerwer said. "1 think the board is doing a good job." Connally's comment in defense of the board was similar. "We have a nine-member board and I don't think they are a rubber he said. The rapid-fire discussion ignited when Planning Director Bnice Clark described the first of the five changes requested. This change would allow a 25- Commissioner Cleve Cul- lers agreed. "We've had some real shopping center (zoning) exper- iences in the past." He said he ivas uninformed on this particular change. Kirk suggested there was no opposition to the shopping center from adjacent property owners "because there is nothing but a plowed field around it."
