Some Suggestions The PP of A manager, in an inter\'iew during a business trip to New York, listed some suggestions to assure a good wedding album. Don't pose, except for one formal shot in the studio or at the reception. Even tossing the bridal bouquet should be done just as if ffie bride didn't know the photographer was on hand. The bride should try to get a good eight hours sleep the night before, he said. "But I know it's often impossible. However, a good rest does make her photograph better.

Old City Archaeologists unearthed the Isrealite city of Gibeon near EI- Jib, eight miles north of Jerusalem. The ancient city is believed to have been built before 1200 B.C. LOS ANGELES (UPI) — The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. told about 30,000 persons taking part in a "Freedom Rally for Birmingham" Sunday night that President Kennedy "had not done enough" to outlaw segregation. King, leader of the Alabama desegregation movement, told an enthusiastic crowd that the President "had done some significant things on civil rights" but that much more should be done. After the rally an estimated 1,000 persons marched the four miles through the downtowTi area to city hall led by two Negroes holding two police dogs on leashes. The assemblage was quiet and orderly during the march and the half-hour they remained at city hall to listen to the vice chairman of the Los Angeles chapter of the Congress for Racial Equality gave a short talk. Some marchers carried signs with such slogans as "Equality, when?" and "Freedom in Alabama." —"so different!" * Imported & Domestic Decorative Accessories • Unusual Gifts & Novelties * Special Artists Cards • Cuitoroer Forking Volidated • You Moy Park in Front 221 East State Acrosi from Sccurttj Bank Helen Vawter Jeuit Vewter Spectators at Wrigley Field attending the three-hour rally contributed thousands of dollars to support,the Alabama non-violence movement.

Harlem itself creates biggest race problem in New York Qty EDITOR'S NOTE: Following is the first of five dispatches by United Press International on the racial situation in five key areas in the North—New York, Washington, Chicago, Detroit and Los Angeles. By GARY P. GATES United Press International NEW YORK (UPI) - If one word could be used to s >Tnbolize the Negro problem in New York City, the word would be Harlem. Civil rights leaders on both sides of the color line agree that the removal of Harlem and all it represents from the face of the nation's largest metropolis would all but eliminate the racial tensions here. Harlem is considerably more than a community situated in New York's Upper Manhattan. To many Negroes who live there it is less a home than a condition of life, and the name of the condition is poverty. Or, as more than one Negro leader has phrased it, Harlem is "the black man's ghetto." Exceed One Million There are slightly more than one million Negroes livuig in New York City and they represent about 12 per cent of the city's population. (Ten years ago it was roughly 10 per cent and the increase is the result of Negro migration from the South as well as the exodus of the white middle class to suburbia. Since both movements show no signs of decline, the percentage is e.xpected to continue rismg.) Nearly 35 per cent of New York's Negroes live in Harlem, and most of the others live in what might be called subsidiary- Harlems in other parts of the city. There is no law enforcing this residential segregation, but to escape from it is almost as difficult here as it is in communities where segregation has the official approval of local governments. And therein lies the difference between the racial conflict in New York and the one that now is on the rampage in the South. For unlike the South, the civil rights struggle here is not a legal problem. Best In Nation "New York City and New York state have the most enlightened civil rights laws in the countrj'," says Stanley Lowell, chau^nan of the City Commission on Human Rights. And Negro leaders would be the first to agree. New Y'ork Negroes have no trouble exercising their right to vote; there are no legal barriers to school integration; the housing laws, both city and state, make it illegal for realtors to refuse rental or sale on racial grounds; and it is against the law to refuse employment to Negroes because of race. "The Negroes in New Y'ork have won their battle for legal equality," said Lowell. "Now they are demanding true equality and make no mistake about it: They're impatient and angry and they're tired of L'stening to empty promises and platitudes." "The shortcomings of our laws are that they're all negative." Lowell said. "You can enact legislation forbidding people to practice overt discrimination, but you can't pass laws demanding employers to actively seek out qualified Negroes and you can't pass laws forcing white Americans to accept Negroes as first<lass citizens. And that's what the whita community must do. We must increase our awareness of the Negro problem and we must do domething about it before it blows up in our faces." Tension On Rise There has not been a serious race riot in New Y'ork since 1943 when racial tensions erupted in Harlem and quickly spread to other parts of the city. Since then there have been a few minor skirmishes, "but these did not originate from racial problems as such," said Deputy Police Commissioner Walter Arm. Arm confirm^ the recent reports that conditions in Harlem and other Negro areas have been more tense and hostile in recent weeks and that police officials are studying the situation with growing concern. "I don't know if it's a resentment over what's been gouig on in Birmingham (Ala.) and other parts of the South or what, but the atmosphere is not good. Not good at all," he said. 350 inventions daily Americans swamp patent office with all sorts of new ideas (First of Three) By HARRY FERGUSON United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - Every day 350 American inventors apply to the federal government for a patent and automatically become mental millionaires. They have rosy dreams of quick wealth, but as Uie days, months and years roll by they are driven to the conclusion that roulette and crap- shootiog may be better bets. The odds against an inventor getting rich are formidable. There is almost a fifty-fifty chance that somebody thought up the gadget before he did and already has obtained a patent. In any case his application goes to the bottom of a list of 198,000 others which are awaiting a decision in the U.S. Patent Office, and on an average it will be between three and three and a half years before he will know how he stands. Only The Beginning But his troubles are only be ginning. Once he gets the patent, he has to persuade somebody to manufacture and sell his gadget and here, again, his chances are only a little better than fifty fifty. Too many people invent things that nobody happens to want at the moment. The classic example is Johannes Gutenberg, a German who invented movable type in the middle of the 15th century. He made crude block letters and printed a 28-page book in Latin advising people how to make speeches. Then he ran out of money and got a loan from Johann Fust, a banker. Gutenberg then printed some bibles, but they didn't sell well. The miscalculation in Gutenberg's plan was that very few people knew how to read and there wasn't any market for printed pages. The banker foreclosed on him, seized all of his equipment and Gutenberg wound up working for the archbishop of Mainz at a salary of one new suit of clothes a year. Has Same Problem Bartolomeo Cristofori ran info the same problem when he invented the piano in 1709. The Italians didn't like the piano, preferring the dulcimer and the harpsi­ chord, and Cristofori's pianos rotted in the warehouses. Long after the inventor's death a German, Gottfried Silbermann, read about Cristofori's pianos and began to build them. He got rich fast. The Germans happened to like pianos. American industry is highly competitive and the natural assumption would be that corporations would slug it out with each other in an attempt to get an invention that would improve their product. But sometimes they appear to be completely blind when a new idea—patented and proved —is put before them. Tells Amazing Story In 1926 F. W. Davis invented power steering for automobiles. It made a car infinitely easier to handle and obviously was a strong selling point to women drivers. But just the other day Davis, ra Boston, told in the WaU Street Journal an amazing story about his invention. As soon as he bad perfected the device he took it to Detroit and demonstrated it to 10 automobile companies. None was interested. In 1928 he stirred some interest in Cadillac Motors, he said, and a tentative licensing agreement was drawn up. But Cadillac decided the cost of tooling the invention was too high and the agreement was allowed to expire. Davis said he then went to the Bendix Corp., which agreed to experiment but only on pilot models for buses and trucks. Sometime in 1940 Davis said he got the Buick Motor Co. interested in power steermg. 'It looked like we were ready to go," he said, "but then came Pearl Harbor and the end of civilian automobile production. 'After the war I went back to Cadillac and they told me they didn't need anything new because they were selling all the cars they could make. It was not until 1951 when a buyers' market returned that the automobile makers became interested in power steering. When Chrysler introduced a power steering model, everybody wanted one and I be- Car(Js and Gifts for ALL Graduates DOWNTOWN REDLANDS FREE PARKINS AT REAR of STORE gan to make some money." Before adoption of the U.S. Constitution the American colonies and states issued patents and the first one went to Samuel Winslow of Massachusetts, who in 1641 devised a new method for manufacturing salt President George Washington signed the first federal patent law on April 10, 1790. and since then the U.S. Patent Office has granted 3,090,044 applications. Most of them have been forgotten, and that is the reason few inventors get rich. But when a man comes up with the right thing at the right time, the money rolls in like the tides of the ocean. Take Cyrus H. McCormick, for instance. His father owned four farms in Virginia, two saw mills and a blacksmith shop, and was constantly tinkering with the idea of a machine for harvesting his gram. Y'oung McCormick went to work on the problem and in 1831, at the ag? of 22, submitted his plans to the family blacksmith. What he had done was to solve the problem of how to keep stones and stumps from breaking the sharp edge of the knives which cut the grain. He did it by protecting them with a string of metal fingers which brushed aside the rocks. Before 1831 a man with a scythe could cut about half an acre of grain a day. Soon McCormick's reaper was cutting 16 acres a day, even though it was horse drawn. McCormick had hit the jackpot and he moved to Chicago, where he put up a factory and sold reapers as fast as he could make them. One by-product of McCormick's invention was that the Chicago lawyers never had it so good. They went up and down the land suing people who were infringing on McCormick's patents. When an inventor has to spend lots of time in court, he knows he has it made. Next: How to get a patent and what to do with it. Plane crew listed as missing SAN DIEGO (UPD-The four- man crew of an S2F tracer plane from the aircraft carrier Kearsarge was missing and presumed dead today, the commander of Air Force Pacific Fleet said. The plane crashed during antisubmarine warfare exercises about 150 miles south of Honolulu Sunday. The crew members were Lt. Cmdr. Norris M. Tollefson of Imperial Beach, the pUot; Lt. (j.g.)
