Independent, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1958, Pasadena, CaliforniaOpinion Page the Independent february 13, 1958, Page 18 officer arrest him tried to pay his Way in the land of the free Load the Man who wants to pay his Way is wicked. Of All the strange fancies flickering across the television screen none is As strange As the real life performance now being put on by the Industry itself. Television weeping for itself in Washington wrings its hands Over what it Calls the threat of Competition. It is asking Protection against those wicked toll television people who have the Gall w suggest charging Money for the service they perform. This fee is almost in american were told. This could be a dangerous blow against private Enterprise. For the first time in the history of this nation congressmen Are considering a Law to forbid a direct charge for a direct service. And for the first time in history an Industry with a product for which it makes no direct charge is frightened of a potential competitor who plans to charge a fair Price for the product. This is an upside Down situation and the longer you study it the stranger it gets. The people now producing free to say they Are very sure that the Public prefers their free product but in the same breath they beg for a Law that will prevent the pub lic from even trying a competing product. They want Congress to forbid a trial run to Sample Public opinion. They ask this despite the fact that polls on the subject have indicated the Public would at least like to have a look at pay to. In the los Angeles area 52.2 per cent of those questioned said they would pay a fee to see new movies and other Box office features and Only 33.7 per cent indicated they would not be willing to pay. The pay to people say they can sell the Public the kind it has always been willing to pay for at the Box movies major sports events top Broadway musicals and plays and Good musical comic and dramatic Talent. The free to people claim this is dangerous that it might disrupt their Industry that the Public does t really want it anyway and that there ought to be a Law to keep the Public from trying it. Only an Industry fearful that its product is shabby would ask Congress to outlaw a potential competitor. It is frightening to think that Congress right now is actually considering such no pay legislation. Are we approaching the time when it will be criminal to pay for what you want our own coins Are ready for the Slot ready to give the new idea a whirl. What comes out is Only the same old Western with the same old Commer Cial Well look for another Slot. The ballot Box is the world s Best device to get a direct democratic answer. Another democratic device is the Box office. Mark s report inside w4shington Mili ciry pay increase studied Robert s. Allen Washington. The administration s Bill in increase military pay is going to be extensively rewritten in Congress. That appears definitely indicated by backstage developments. A particularly significant instance was the private meeting of the House armed services subcommittee which is handling this Long pending legislation. During a discussion of plans for its consideration committeemen voiced Sharp dissatisfaction with major provisions of the administration s measure. Especially important was the critical attitude of Paul Kilday d., chairman of this key group. The san Antonio Veteran is a leading congressional authority on military pay. He tarries much weight with ills colleagues on this matter. Publicly lie has refrained from commenting on the administration s Bill. But Al this closed door conference Kilday made no secret of his disapproval of it. At one Point he said flatly no Bill with provisions of that kind is going to be reported out by this com Mittee. For one Ranson Tho House would never stand for none of the other committeemen disagreed with Kilday. Following Are principal changes contemplated by ii powerful lawmaker a Rost of living raise if at least 6 per cent for All Active and retired military personnel. The administration measure would give this increase Only to Active personnel after two years service and exclude entirely All retirees. Slash a proposed salary of around for the head of the joint chiefs of staff and other sizable hikes for top ranking commanders. Give Junior officers a bigger pay boost than is in the administration Bill. Under it certain second lieu tenants would receive a raise of less than s1. Junk the administration s far reaching 20-year retirement provision. Under representative Kilday s plans his subcommittee will launch hearings next monday with the aim of pelting the pay Hill before the House by March 15. By sending this Bill to the Senate Well before april 1." Kilday told his colleagues thai should appreciably cup Chile ii consideration there. We want to do everything we can to make certain this pay raise is enacted by Congress this year. It s been hanging fire Long Kilday s views and plans Are authoritatively under stood to be Appi overt by three top democratic leaders of the Sam Rayburn. Tex., floor Leader John Mcconnach. Mass., and Carl Vinson ga., chairman of the full armed services committee. Palaeontologists Don t know Why reptiles took to the Road that turned them into mammals and eventually into science note.

Please keep an Eagle Eye Oil such mailers in Pasadena too especially in the movie Field. Reader Pasadena report on red globes Given Russ Leadabrand sincerely George w. Dunton anybody want to argue from Paris France that i wish it were Paris Kentucky. Your fugitive from Vogue Magazine has left the delights of Spain and the flesh spots of London to per form his occasional duty to the Good ladies of America on what is new in High style and i have a word for you. If you go along with the newest in haul couture from this town you Are going to look so silly that the British expression bloody can be construed As a compliment. The Young have inherited the Earth since the Good Messieurs dior and Jacques Fath joined the feathered choir and they have reverted to 1928, Well before they were born. A Nipper of 22 named Yves St. Laurent re placed dior and there s another child around named Pierre Cardin and another named Rency and what they Are going to do to the matrons i Don t like to think about. For me it s just like being a kid myself for the new stuff seems to Combine equal parts of Clara Bow Early Myrna Loy and space Cadet. I had forgotten How silly extremely Short skirts look on a Dame acid the Dames Are cursing while wearing. A lady who Calls herself a lady can t get out of a Low Slung car without making a spectacle of herself and even the simple chore of sitting on a sofa leaves very Little of the lower Structure to the imagination. This will be known As the Era of the in crossed knee or the legion of decency will Burn a flaming Cross once More. When Milady is standing up straight the skirt hits her right on the dimple of her knee. Being generally tightly gathered around her she might As Well fare Forth in her Girdle unadorned by extras. But if the leg men Are going to have a Field Day the upstairs admirers will silently Slink away. From the hips up Mademoiselle emerges from what seems to be a balloon above an area of one Square mile entered a Block or so South of Huntington drive about Midway Between san Gabriel and Rosemead the objects seemed to be rising slightly and on a Compass heading from North quotes West to Southeast. Plotting the distance on a music map gave us about feet line of sight from our in Europe music is a Trade Telescope.

In yields a velocity of 12 feet Amma music is a Bonfire per second at the estimated Francescatti. Distance of feet. Robert Ruark secured to the lady by a Belt under her behind. All around this nonsense is a flock buttons and Bow. The hats remind you of the Early Myrna Loy ice age or at least an awning because they come Down to the shoulders unless they Are a bad copy of a Man s fishing hat. The hair do is All Over the place and i swear on the memory of Hattie Carnegie i never saw such a conglomeration of mess in my born Days. The shoes still have nine Inch heels in the Middle of the sole and ice pick toes. The bunion is Back again in full Flower and i can imagine that the Blue Jay Corn plaster people Are celebrating wildly. As for the dresses there is enough space in the Back of most to accommodate twin Papoose. If the sack is dying perhaps but it is dying hard and Only the fact that the legs emerge can possibly identify the wearer As a woman. You can t see the face for sheep dog hair and you can t see the head for the hat and you can t see the figure for the sack and you get the Odd impression that this is a shaggy vegetable which has Sud Denly sprouted legs. I think we Are in for another reign of horror As the Young gentlemen take Over the old reins and i think that this time the. Ladies themselves will do the screaming. They have grown accustomed to display ing some aspects of the upper form which proclaim them to be girls and also crossing their Knees in Comfort. In advice to the Auto Industry. I will Send a warning. Re design your cars gentlemen and bring Back the old High line with the running Board or you will lose the female customer which you prize so highly. Because a lady cannot get either in or out of a car in the Mode of tomorrow unless the Lap Robe suddenly becomes fashionable again As an adjunct to decorum. News note Reader s recess some of you that saw the red globes of january a 1958 Aren t going to be too Happy with this report by George w. Dunton.

C. A. Dean it is a terrifying thing for a Parent to witness his child having a convulsive seizure sometimes called a the appearance of such a spell gives the impression that damage to the child s brain or another Organ such As heart must be happening. It is important for every Parent to know the Cance. Of convulsions in Case his child becomes a victim. Many years ago it was Felt thai convulsions being dra malic As they Are must cause brain damage but in re cent years the general Opin Ion has changed. It was found that most convulsive seizures end spontaneously and leave no defect. If any serious damage is found in the child it is prob ably due to the cause of the convulsion and not to the convulsion itself. Recent work has shown a possible exception to this Rule namely that if a convulsion is Al Lowed to persist for a Long Lime some damage might re sult. The causes of convulsions in children Are Many. The most frequent cause in the latter part of infancy and in Early childhood is an acute infection especially one associated with a High fever. If no infection or fever is present shortly before the at tack disorders such As head injury poisoning with some drug or agent such As allergy epilepsy Low blood sugar and Letany Are consid ered. Wilh convulsions due to infection and High fever the usual treatment prescribed by the family doctor is Seda Tion and lowering of the elevated body temperature. If a child suffers a convulsive seizure for the first time a Parent has the right to be upset momentarily.
