THE HOBBIT HABIT ... if you haven't got it, chances are
4 you've been living in a cave. The craze for Middle-earth and
its Hobbit inhabitants has infected the American fancy with
all the violence of an epidemic. Controversy rages over the
value of these fantasies in contemporary literature. What kind:
of mind breeds Hobbits? Here is a distinguished scholar's per-
-sonal appraisal of Tolkien and his work. It is not only a pain-
less initiation into the cult but an invaluable casebook for fans
and critics of Middle-earth lore.

Police prefer


to bullets

'Poor people'

NEW YORK (P--Most U.S,
polce departments which have
experimented with chemical
Mace for subduing aggressive
citizens intend to continue its
use despite reservations voiced
by some medical men.
In general, the police feel
that a squirt of Mace in the
face is much more humane than
a brisk rap on the skull with
a night club, or maybe a bul-
let in the leg.,
This finding emerged from a
nationwide survey released yes-

terday in the wake of a warning
by U.S. Surgeon General Wil-
liam H. Stewart that the chem-
ical might have "more than
transient effects" on human
eyes unless there is prompt first
The primary chemical ele-
ment in Mace, which is made
by the General Ordinance
Equipment Corp., of Pittsburgh,
is phenylchormomethylketone,
the main constituent of tear

In Ann Arbor, Police Chief
Walter Krasny ordered a Mace
cease-fire until University sci-
entists complete a series of
tests on the substance. The
tests were arranged because of
protests by civil rights groups
against the use of Mace to calm
an unruly crowd at the scene
of an auto accident last month.
David Craig, Pittsburgh's
public safety director, volun-
teered to be squirted in the face
after protests erupted against
police use of Mace to quell a

high school uprising last No-
"It was like instant sunburn
in the way it irritated the skin,"
Craig reported. "There was an
immediate watering of the eyes
and a general loss of aggres-
"Our police will continue us-
ing Mace. The main point, as
the surgeon general's report
now confirms, is that this
chemical weapon is infinitely
safer and more human than the
firearm or the club," Craig said.

By The Associ tted Press
Demonstrators in the Poor People's Campaign will be permitted
to construct a temporary camp on 15 acres of federal property
located between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memor-
ial, south of the Reflecting Pool, it was announced yesterday.
Rep. Kenneth J. Gary (D-Ill,), chairman of the House sub-
committee on public buildings and grounds, said the agreement was
made between government officials and campaign representatives
for use of the ground, in West Potomac Park.
He said the camp-in will be limited to 3,000 persons, with the
permit terminating 8 p.m. June 16.

Local governments, businesses
put restrictions on sale of guns

NEW YORK (IP)-Many state
and local governments and major
department stores are clamping
down on gun sales in the after-
math of recent civil disorders.
Most active in restricting sales
and possession of firearms, par-
ticularly pistols, have been states
in which riots occurred, a spot
check around the country showed
Sears'Roebuck and Montgomery
Ward-two major mail order
houses-have quit filling mail and
phone orders for guns. Some ma-

jor departments stores have dis-
continued gun sales entirely.
Early this year Chicago en-
acted laws which require gun
owners to register them and which
extends the fan on carrying con-
cealed handguns to include rifles
and shotguns.
Effective July 1 the State of
Illinois will require all persons
posessing firearms or ammunition
to have a license. California en-
acted a gun control law banning
loaded firearms 'in public areas

The company said the restric-
tion was adopted to "help en-
force the registration and delivery
provisions of new and changing
state and local ordinances without
interfering with the sale of guns
and ammunition to ranchers,
farmers, hunters and other legi-
timate customers."
Sears, Roebuck said it was im-
posing the same restrictions "be-
cause of the climate in which we
are living and the great prolifera-
tion of state and local laws."
In New York City, Macy's, Al-

i LONDON UP)-Prime Minister
,Harold Wilson faced a battle for
his political life last night after
a once friendly newspaper tycoon
fgrecast Britain's greatest finan-
cial crisis and charged the Labor
government with lying.
The accusation by Cecil King
capped a political nightmare for
Wilson's followers in countrywide
local elections and helped send the
pound sterling plummeting in
world money markets.
King, 67. owns a publishing em-
pire. that includes the mass cir-
culation Daily and Sunday Mir-
ror. He supported Wilson and the
Labor party in the last two gen-
eral elections.
His demand for Wilson's ouster
on charges of incompetence and
failure to grapple with Britain's
economic woes possess a special
King was a director of the Bank
of England, which manages the
nation's day-to-day accounts. This
would entitle him to an inside
look at the state of Britain's re-
serves. He resigned the directorate
after issuing his blast.
Ministers and lawmakers never-
theless rallied to Wilson's defense
with one colleague, Edward Short,
insisting the prime minister would
yet lead Labor to another electoral
triumph in 1971.
There was little doubt Wilson's
leadership has weakened. The local
elections produced a pro-Conser-
vative swing that decimated the
number of Labor controlled town
halls to a handful up and down
the land.
In Thursday's voting the Con-
servatives had a total of 1,320
gains and 13 losses-against 1,307
Labor losses and 13 gains. The
third main party, the Liberals had
59 losses; 39 gains.,
The Labor reverses had been ex-
pected. Wilson has repeatedly
warned' his followers to brace for
a phase of unpopularity while his
government's tough recovery pro-
gram is under way.
