Poor Man (Or Woman) May

If They Choose Right Way
(By HAL BOYLE)
' NEW YORK UP) So you're
coming to visit New York this
ummer for the first time?
And your ailing rich uncle
hasn't died yet and left you his
money, so you have to travel on
your own skinny pocketbook?
And you want to know whether
anybody can come here and have
fun on a small budget?
... . Brother, at least 7,000,000 of the
people wh,o live here will tell you
"yes" with some qualifications.

curiosity to see and know as much
as you can of this circus too big
to put under canvas. But if your

the New York that O. Henry
wrote about. And so is the Bow

of, Greenwich village. It's best to
see them at night, and the subway
will take you to any of those
places for a dime.
But let's start at the beginning.
When you get off your train or
bus, treat yourself to a cab ride to
your hotel. If you don't know a

WASHINGTON, July 25-UP)
A little bill tossed into the
Senate file last week by Sen

some other western , senators
As explained by Senator Mc
Carran the bill would permit suits
against the United States to ad
judicate water rights in certain
He- says it is aimed partic
ularly at a western river, which
he did not name, where the
United States has acquired rights
by purchase from private hold

.. federal government should wani

stream to the injury of holders of
other water rights, the latter
could go into the federal courts
to determine their rights.
Block Power Development
One western senator suggest
ed legislation of this kind .could
be used to block any new hydro
electric power development. Sen
ator McCarran said, however, He
would not lend a hand toward
any such objective.
He also denied that the bill
has anything to do with the dis
pute between California and Ne
vada on one side and Arizona
on the other over state rights
on the lower Colorado.
Western senators are constant
ly on guard against an expan
sion of federal control of water
sources. One member from a
reclamation state said the Mc
Carran bill would require care

Go to the restaurant at lunch.
The prices are usually scaled
lower at midday and you are
just as likely to see a celebrity
then. Hit the theater boxoffices
half an hour before curtain time.
At all except the top musicals or
"death of a salesman" you'll prob
ably be able to pick up a pair of
tickets. "A Streetcar Named De
sire" is now advertising good
seats available for .all perform
ances, and my wife says it's the
best play in town.
Hear Park Concert
If you're a music lover, you can
listen to some of the world's best'
talent at evening concerts under
the stars at Lewisohn stadium.
And the prices; tax paid, range
from thirty cents to $2. Major
league baseball isn't too high. Go
to see the Dodgers play at night
then you won't have to add the
cost of a bottle of sunburn lotion
to the price of your bleacher seat.
Don't fail to go up to the top of
the Empire State building. Take
a trip through Rockefeller Center.
See the Rockettes in the Radio
City music hall. Ride the ferry to
Staten island and enjoy the grert
est "view and the longest over
water ride on the globe for a
nickel. All are good buys.
But walking and gawking are
the finest fun here if your arches
are strong. Stroll through the gar

noon; Wall Street, deserted on a
Saturday , afternoon; and Times
Square on Saturday night,, the
biggest country town in America.
Two final Important tips:-
(1) Don't change any. $2 (or
$20) bills for strangers.
(2) When In doubt about any
thing, ask a cop. If you can't un
