Page two tuesday May 9, 1967 one Echo too Many the National federation of Republican women ended its convention saturday at Washington on non orchestrated music. The principal business for the meeting was to select a slate of officers. Mrs. Gladys of Donnell of i Ong Beach calif., won the real office at stake a the presidency. She Defeated mrs. Phyllis Schlafly of Alton 111., 1,910 to 1,494. The margin was much closer than a predicted 2-1 Victory for the Winner when the convention was first organizing. The loser charges 94 of her delegates were barred from the proceedings that her poll watchers were shielded from the ballot counting and during the proceedings prior to the vote tally the convention officials issued a string of rulings favourable to her opponent. Probably the Fri would have to be called in to determine what the skullduggery was but it would be a fair guess the Hawkshaw would find no More than the customary Higg Eldy pig Geld that characterizes most political gatherings. Somebody is always slipping in a fast play or trying to. Behind the mane vering is a re play of the 1964 . Convention. Mrs. Schlafly is an ardent supporter of Barry Goldwater and author of a Campaign Book on his behalf a a Choice not an mrs. Of Donnell represents the Interior guard which seeks to forget the fiasco of lbs is. Barry in november 1964 and get on with the business of winning the White House and possibly the House of representatives next year. Picking a Goldwate rite to head up the women a division would be the surest Means in the world of losing the Independent voter which the . Is wooing so assiduously and which to a considerable degree attracted to its ranks in the 1966 off year elections. Mrs. Schlafly is enough of a professional politician to understand this. Her Well meaning adherents do not. They Are most receptive to leaving the federation and setting up a sort of Bull Moose Congress of their own choosing. One word from their Leader and the 1968 Republican convention would have two warring female factions on its hands. To lbs who is having troubles with his poll ratings this possibility would be a Welcome Aid second Only to Romney and Nixon squaring off with pistols at Dawn. The conservative voice is not a st chord in the u.s., but if it is to be heard More effectively its spokesmen must rid themselves of a crippling fixation. This is the Assumption that the american Public wants the Black and White contrast of conservatism is. Libertarianism. It finds common expression in the clamor that a me Taoism can to How this squares with Eisenhower a majorities in �?T52 and 56 and Goldwater a debacle in �?T64 we have yet to hear explained satisfactorily. The fact is the american majority prefers a Middle ground. Possibly this is a notch left of Center but it is not a sled length commitment. Any doctrine must gain its acceptance through that filtering process. This will hold True until such time As the Public in a mass movement like a Glacier coming downhill discards moderation for something else. Only in localized elections does the unyielding advocate of the left or the right stand a Chance at this time. The federations convention Bosses realize this condition and for that reason picked an older less glamorous woman than mrs. Schlafly. Britain skid As had been Long expected great Britain a prime minister Harold Wilson has announced his labor governments a historic decision to apply for entry into the european common Market. A similar decision by a tory government was vetoed by Frances president de Gaulle in 1963. Although he is Likely again to oppose great Britain by every Means Short of a veto Wilson Hopes to take his country into the economic and political Community by Jan. 1, 1970. From indications de guile intends to put every obstacle he can devise in Britain a path. He still insists that her close ties to her Commonwealth nations and to the United states deprive Britain of the right to become a part of Europe. Even if the general relents Britain a Entrance into the Market would not be free of Domestic difficulty. For although a majority of britons polled favor membership Wilson faces opposition from labor unions and in parliament for Radical members of his own party. The prime minister also is aware the common markets farm policy would involve far reaching changes in Britain a own agriculture with the threat of an immediate Rise in food prices. Wilson has told parliament he will press vigorously for membership. But the prime minister wisely Hedges too. A we Are not approaching this problem a he said a on the basis that we must go in or perish. There Are alternatives including the alternative of staying perhaps this is the kind of approach that May Appeal to Gen. De Gaulle. Britain a failure to enter the common Market most Likely would draw her into even closer Alliance with the United states and this is not what he wants. Complacent Nasa the Broad Blanket of National Security Pride and patriotism serves to Dampen criticism of questionable practices and procedures in the related Fields of space and defense. Equally effective is the powerful Complex of influence generated by these industries an influence president Eisenhower once noted in warning against the a Rise of misplaced Power in government. What can Only appear to be permissiveness has marked the relationship Between Nasa and its prime contractor in the Apollo program. As Long ago As 1965, maj. Gen. Samuel Phillips Apollo program director noted that on the basis of deficiencies and Sloppy workmanship he could not find a substantive basis for Confidence in future yet the same contractor continued on the Job. Two years later a spark from a faulty wire ignited the Apollo test Craft and three astronauts died. New checks have been instituted since the Apollo tragedy with the result that a disturbing number of flaws has been uncovered including faulty electrical wiring required for the new spacecraft. What one must wonder is Nasa going to do about it beyond attempting to minimize the findings As a summary of known problems the really big problem is safeguarding the lives of the men who will be expected to take this equipment aloft. And an essential part of that is demanding higher standards of workmanship Quality control and care in handling delicate equipment a to the Point of changing contractors if necessary. A sunken ship becomes in effect an artificial reef that provides a Haven for fish. Fishing experts experimentally Are dumping old streetcars automobiles and other Bulky refuse into the Ocean to provide More Homes for Marine life thus better fishing. Instead of asking for a dime the Hobo of the future May request the loan of a credit card. R the pots boiling again a iter speaking of your health Vij Utju a. Glancing backwards a st.

One of these stains is a Mark of Honor it is a deep stain of Crimson red made by the blood of our boys in Viet Nam made by the wounded and by the dead. Their heroic blood has made this stain fighting for folks across the sea to keep their Torch of Freedom Bright in the great cause of Liberty. But there Are other stains upon our Flag that be smear miss Liberty s face by those who defile their native land and repell us by their own disgrace.

Some hands have built in traps to catch the unwary. Here is an easy one to fall into. West led a Spade. Declarer ducked two rounds and took the third one with the Ace. On the Spade he discarded hearts from Dummy. He then cashed the Queen of clubs and led a club to the Ace West showing out. South could not afford to establish the suit now by giving up a club because the defense would then Cash two More Spades to defeat him a trick. So he led a Diamond to the Ace and another one Back to the Queen on which East produced the Jack. But when he then cashed the King of chips find continued with the ten of diamonds he came to the end of his resources. He could neither afford to let the ten hold nor to overtake it with the King for in either Case it would be his last Diamond trick. West had kept his diamonds and the apparently innocuous nine proved to be a stumbling Block for South. So Declarer went Down one when the play is Analysed it can be seen that South would have made the contract had he led diamonds before clubs. This would have permitted him to score four diamonds three clubs and the two other aces. It May seem unnatural to Lead diamonds before clubs but that is the right line of play. By attacking diamonds first Declarer is Able to take advantage of the possibility that one opponent was death the Singleton or double ton Jack. The Queen of clubs then serves As an entry to Cash the fourth Diamond. There is no advantage in leading clubs first because that suit takes care of itself. It either Breaks 3-2 or it does no to.
