THERE'S NO SECOND CHANCE IN A FIRE It's frightening but true that moat fina in the home start batman midnight and 6 a.m.- when moat members of the family are asleep and least pre pared to handle an emergency. And the lung-scorching heat, tha fumes, and the smoke can travel ahead of the actual fire; your home can be a deathtrap before you ever see the flames. Scary? Sure it is. But you can turn the odds in your favor by planning ahead. Your worst en emies in a fire are panic and confusion. If your family including the children—can act calmly and efficiently, you can survive circumstances which otherwise would be tragic. A new booklet, "How to Abandon a Burning House Without Panicking" has just been prepared by The Conti nental Insurance Companies. Available from local agents who display the Continental Soldier, the booklet describes the family fire drill as the key to survival. It gives you tips like these: Point 1. Select a family alarm recognizable to all—it can be a bell, a whistle or just SNOOPY SPELLS FUN FOR MILLIONS OF AMERICANS Peanuts is a crackerjack of a cimiic strip if its 60 million plus Sunday circulation is any indication. Featuring the capti vating Snoopy and (ho Rod Baron as well as dozens of other delightful characters, tin strip also appears in It) college as well as .135 newspapers and ton magazines in 51 foreign countries. It has been translntod into I I differ ent languagox. "Peanuts are the grandest people in the world," explains creator Charles M. Schulz. "Your children are peanuts, and so are mine." They're de lightful, lovable, funny, irresist ible and wonderfully unpre dictable. I really hate to see them grow out of the peanut stage." The artist draws this conclu sion from the world-wide success of the strip distributed by United Features Syndicate. Peanuts has won phenomenal popularity among readers of all ages and earned for Schulz such prized honors as the National Cartoonists' Society's "Cartoonist of The Year" Comments from the Capital Ji 1 ON THE NEED FOR REMAINING REASONABLE by Vant Neff The man I interviewed was public relations director for the 'Free the Panthers" movement in New Haven. In the course of our reasoning I said, "But someone was murdered. Who should be tried?" "The police", he answered. "Why not Jesus Christ?", I in quired of him. "He could have prevented it!", he replied. My sarcasm was lost on him. Instead came a long tirade that the police throughout the coun try had hampered the Black Pan thers from registering their dis approval. My conclusion is that you can't rationalize with irra tional people. The only thing to do, in my humble opinion, when someone steps out of line, is to slap him down. Condoning il legal actions creates criminals. • • • Funny, but the Woman's Lib eration agitators want every thing for women, yet the tactics they utilize to gain their objec tives could hardly be considered feminine. Witness their brash behavior toward the editor of a national women's magazine. His office was invaded. He was locked in a closet. He was held prisoner for several hours, until he agreed to change the maga sine's editorial policy to coincide with their oddball ideas. I sug gest, that as far as femininity and women's rights are con cerned, these wild, way-out gals may have won the battle —but lost tiie war. • * • Many people regard the mili tant Weatherman faction of the SDS as merely misguided young terrorists. Behind this mask of free love, high spirits and free everything else lies the same kind of rebellious fanaticism that foments riots, bombs and burns buildings and causes sab otage, wildcat work stoppages ana strikes, all without batting a tender young eyelash. Last summer, well • indoctrinated Weathermen, about a thousand strong, emerged from hippie pads and went into industrial jobs where they practiced their revolutionary strategems. They were so successful that you can count on the number multiplying this year. Their main targets may be arms factories, chemical warfare plants who knows? "In hate with almost every thing, one of the fondest wishes of the SDS is to cause slowdowns rmH curtail production of war materials to demonstrate their support of the North Vietnamese. (Havein't you seen pictures of these shaggy kids, waving Viet cong flags?) I will be watching with great interest for whatever new strength and solidarity they may add to the "hell with every body attitude that's the banging on a wall, but it must be loud. Point 1 Decide in advance how each member of the fam ily should proceed when awak ened .... that will be the basis for the drill. Point 3. Plan two escape ■ routes from each room—one to be followed if the halls and stairway are safe, the other if some alternative exit becomes necessary. (If you need help in choosing a safe exit, check with fire department.) Point 4. If your household includes a small child, an inva lid or anyone else who would need help in an emergency, assign responsibilities for rescu ing them. Point 5. Agree to a rendez vous point outside where everyone is expected to meet immediately after leaving the house. This is important—loo many people have been killed going back to search for a family member who was al ready outside. Point 6. Conduct your drills award in l!>sti and li)6t (the only two-time winner), the society's "Host Humor Strip of the Year" award in l!(t>2, and the 1958 "Humorist of the Year" award of the Yalo Record. In the beginning, in lilt!), ho sen( a bundle of panel cartoons to the syndicate. "My wile and I kept our fingers crossed, wail ing for the reply," ho says. "And when they wrote thai they would be interested in seeing my funny youngsters developed in comic-strip form, rather than as single panel car- toons, I really got excited. 1 had already developed some definite little characters that I thought would make a good daily strip, so I drew them up and left for New York." Since its first appearance in 1950, the strip has generated a constant flow of devoted fan mail. One woman wrote, "Al though peanuts are fattening and I'm supposed to be on a diet, I just can't resist your delightful comic. I read it every morning in lieu of breakfast." Another woman wrote. credo of many troublemakers on the labor scene today. * « • Just out of jail, an outspoken labor leader recommended that all of the nation's lawmakers be locked up too. Why? Did they break any laws? Isn't this pos ture typical of many labor big wigs who pretend to seek justice and fairness for all, but in reality want to make their own laws? • • • It's puzzling to me how a cer tain mayor has little concern for the problems that beset his crisis torn city dangerously inade quate public transportation, pov erty, bombs, street riots, strikes, budget woes—but plenty of time and energy to devote to deni grating the government's posi tion on Indochina. His name? John Lindsay of New York, a man, some think, with definite aspirations toward the Presi dency of the United States! Bet ter tidy your own backyard first, Mr. Mayor, before attempting to assume greater responsibility and even bigger problems. Even though the automobile industry is facing some mighty challenge* this year, the union masterminds won't relent in their unflagging quest for more. Money is the big prize, as al ways. The United Auto Workers Union is all set to spring its new demands this fall—totalling, it is conservatively estimated, 6 bil lion. And that's not pin money! • • • The Gallup Poll reveals that people are 4-1 in favor of Justice Douglas' impeachment. Not only has he written a book praising youthful rebellion (he's married again to a very young woman) but also has placed a similar article in a magazine that spe cializes in erotic material. "Shocking!" a Congressman de scribed it. About time, I think, to look into Justice Douglas' fit ness to sit on the Supreme Court bench where he wields so much power over the lives of so many. Clearly, most sensible Ameri at night with no advance notice to your family. Point 7. Don't endanger yourselves in the drill. You need not actually go out on a roof so long as you know enough to do so and have learned how to open the win dow and screen, for instance. Point 8. Don't waste time. It's precious. Everyone must act promptly, correctly and automatically. Looking around for a pet, for instance, could cost your life and the life of someone who might then try to rescue you. Point 9. Don't stop to col lect your valuables, and don't be concerned with your appearance. The Continental booklet also has some very valuable tips on other aspects of fire prevention and survival, as well as a grid for charting your escape routes. This might be the most important thing you can post on your kitchen bulletin board! Pick it up, "How to Abandon a Burning House Without Panicking," from your local Continental Insurance agent soon. "Whenever I refer to my soon lo-bo-bom first baby, I call him Charlie Brown. If ho is a boy I will undoubtedly name him Charlie Brown." Today there's even a delight ful game by Millon Bradley for youngsters thai features that dashing, daring, cavalier of the sky. Snoopy, the dog, and his arch-enemy, the villainous Red Baron. The object of the game for boys and girls aged 7 to 12 is to foil the Red Baron by fending off bad bullets (marbles) that he fires at Snoopy while rounding up the good bullets in the doghouse. Two players lake turns in the "dog fight" acting as Snoopy and the Red Baron. It's a sturdy, all-plastic, down-to earth "pilot project" that children love. Grown-ups as well as young- Km? A slers are devoted to the strip. When the Detroit Free Press inadvertently omitted Peanuts from the first two editions one day, "our switchboard," according to the editor, "lit up like a Christmas tree. We stopped the presses and got Peanuts back into the paper." cans have come to the same con clusion. , » « It's a sore subject with many victims: the National Labor Re lations Board's union-coddling rulings are keeping a strangle hold over the small business man. He may think he owns his own place. He may depend on it for his livelihood. But he doesn't really have much say in running it. Can he set up efficient work schedules? Can he promote the man he considers best equipped to handle bigger job responsibility? Can he discon tinue an out-of-date product that's a dead loss financially? Before he does, he must first try to get the union to agree to the matter. This restraint on his free dom is imposed by the NLRB. Is it fair and just? Why is it that the NLRB is so consistently one sided, in favor of the unions? Could it be because the labor chieftains they pamper play such an important role in politi cal maneuverings, wielding their vast vote-throwing power like the strong man in the circus? Isn't it time to give our country's antiquated labor laws the good shaking up they so urgently need? A major revision is in order. Shouldn't the job be un dertaken by impartial people with no political debts to pay off. and no apparent vulnerabil ity to future pressures from union overlords? t • • Talk about labor troubles! Even the dog catchers in Brook lyn caught the strike bug. Here's hoping for a quick recovery for the poor pets, because strikes never benefit anyone, in the long run. • * * Congratulations to the Justice Department for turning thumbs down on the visa request of Mrs. W. E. B. Dußois, widow of the notorious Afro-American expatri ate. After living abroad as a citi zen of Ghana for many years, she was invited to speak at a university in the southern part of our country. How much trouble Mrs. Dußois might have stirred up had she been permitted to return to the U.S. is anybody's guess. But isn't the whole coun try now suffering from the effects of the violence, subversive ideas and rabble-rousing incited by Mr. Dußois' contentious campus clubs? • ♦ • Psychology professor Di. Ken neth B. Clark says that Vice Pres ident Agnew "uses the powerl and privilege of his position to DARE to interfere with the free dom of academic institutions". Question: aren't the students who seize and destroy university buildings and property interfer ing with academic freedom?
