Poge 12 REDLANDS. CAUFORNIA JUNE 24, 1963 California Fair Housing bill is full of dynamite Passed in angry debate in the final hour of the 1963 session of the Legislature Friday night, the fair housing bill is a blockbuster. Affecting an estimated t\vo-thirds of all dwellings in the state, it could send a raciaily prejudiced homeower to jail. An immediate side-effect will be the spread of sit- in demonstrations through courthouses and city halls, up and dowTi the length of CaJifomia. It was the housing bill that the CORE demonstrators wanted. They ai-e the ones w^ho "camped" for weeks on the second floor of the Capitol rotunda, with the blessing of Gov. Edmund Brown. They arc the ones who piled their bodies on the floor, blocking the e.xit of the Senate at adjournment time. This will encourage pressure groups to believe that the way to win is to conduct aggressive demonstrations. They will occupy corridoi-s w here boards of super\'isors and city councils meet, contrary to the previously accepted belief that such actions were beyond the bounds of law and order. Just watch! Gov. Brown and his Legislative cohorts identified themseh^ with this measm-e. Accordingly they will make political hay with minority gi'oups reaping the possible fiiaits at tlie polls. They will also invite the wrath of whoever happens to feel the housing bill is wrong. This will certainly be an influence in the jumping of party lines by many voters for conviction in this matter does not neatly divide into Republican and Democi-atic blocs. No one needs to be told that fair housing touches •on the most sensitive ner\'e in the body politic. The voice of the Negro people was heard in Redlands last week when the Rev. L. L. White, a Negro Methodist minister from Los Angeles, told .service club men, that the moment of truth for minorities has come. . . that the demonstrations by Negroes everywhere are a manifestation of their determination to have the same rights that others have. . . "the right to be a man". Equal housing rights are but a surface showing of much, much more that they -w-ant, he e.vplained. Reflecting the opposite view is Daniel F. Sheehan, Sr., the president of the National Association of Real Estate Boards. He said in a Mai-yland speech the other day that inequality cannot be solved with laws for "forced housing". "Speedier progress can be made only when the basic problem is brought out openly into the light and dealt with directly — and that problem is the attitude of the people about whom they want as neighbors," Sheehan declared. "It is there, and being an emotion it cannot be removed by laws, demonstrations or intimidation. It can be solved only by education, tolerance, un- dei-standing — and these stem primarily from the home and the church." If Sheehan is right, then the home and the Church have a big job of work cut out for them in California and they had better get on with it with fei-vor equal to that of demonstrators. The law has been adopted by the Legislature, vvill be enthusiastically signed by the governor and will become enforceable in the courts by fall. Brown falls on his face Gov. Edmund Brown, Democrat, has top-heavy Democratic majorities in both the Assembly and Senate. When the allotted time for the 1963 session ran out Friday evening, Governor Brown had not won passage for the budget he wanted. So who does he blame? "A handful of corporate interests." But isn't the simple fact that the Governor's ta.\ and budget schemes were so faulty that he couldn't even sell them to his own partisans? They wouldn't buy the turkey. Nor did he exercise leadership, correcting his budget and tax schemes to meet the wll of the Legislature. This is a sorry performance by a Governor who has the political muscle to be effective. To tiy to get the budget he demands he will call the Legislature back into session on July 1. Let him engage in all the name calling he wants. He can't explain away this incompetent performance. Bake a happiness cake In the old days, one of the traditional ^ts for the June bride from female friends and relatives was a cherished recipe. That may be a little out-of- date in this day of frozen dinners and \varm-'n'- serve meals. But here's one sentimental recipe for happiness that bears passing along, with thanks to Libby, McNeill and Libby: 1 heaping portion of true love 1 heaping cup of perfect trust and confidence 1 heaping cup of tenderness (the most tender available) 1 heaping cup of good humor (a little e.\-tra won't hull) 1 tablespoon of good spirits (the more spiiited the better) Blend with: 1 heaping cup of unselfishness A dash of interest in all HE does Add: 1 good helping of work—^to avoid this would spoil the flavor Mbc all these ingredients with a pmt of sympathy and understanding combined. Flavor with loving companionship. Bake well all your life. Frost with kisses, fond hopes and tender words. This cake keeps well and should be served often. What did people spend the summer sitting beside before they had swimming pools? Congressman Sludgepump says there is no nepotism in his office and he has hired several relatives to check from time to time that none of it starts up. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore For an ornamental fountain to be located in front of Safety Hall the Redlands Horticultural and Improvement Society has contributed S400 to the City. This, we presume, is intended lo catch the spirit of the fa«n fountain by City Hall, created in memory of George Hinckley, for decades Redlands City Engineer. To create a suitable fountain additional funds will be needed and the Horticultural Society hopes that some philanthropically minded citizen will come forth with a supplemental donation. Fountains can take many forms but our favorite was the simple, utilitarian one that used to stand at the State street curb just east of Orange. This was a cylinder of granite, about a foot in diameter and about 40 inches tall. At the top a perpetual jet of water squirted into the scooped out bowl, inviting all v.ho passed that way to pause and drink. The granite fountain was magic to the litUe kids on a hot day. They would bolt for it, drinking their fill. The small jet was the one place where you could see running water at any time, any day. It was a far cry from the Mill Creek Zanja which used lo flow across Orange street at Redlands boulevard, but still it was living, everlasting, visible water. Beginning next week you are supposed lo augment your own mailing address by writing your ZIP number immediately after "California". In Redlands your ZIP is 92374 if you have a post office bo.\ and one digit lower if you don't, that is, 92373. You are also supposed to start writing the ZIP numbers you do know, or will learn in the future, with addresses you use in writing lo others. Just as the banks have given you a personal account number which is imprinted in magnetic ink on your checks, the post office department is assigning ZIP numbers to work toward automation of mail sorting. It you have ever watched a batch of checks being sorted by an electronic machine you can appreciate the potential of this improvement. The checks shoot through the sorter at a speed that makes a machine gun seem slow. Of course, it will take a long time for the ZIP system to really get rolling, just as the banks needed a couple of years to get themselves and the public geared up to electronic data processing. In case you arc curious about the meaning of your ZIP number, the e.\planation is simple. The digits begin with the largest geographical area in the ZIP classification system and keep narrowing down until they become specific to a particular post office, or zone served by a post office. Thus the Redlands home delivery' number, 92373, breaks down in this manner: 9 West Coast including California, Oregon and Washington, as well as Alaska and Hawaii. (There are 10 zones, 0 through 9). 2 Our postal district within Area 9. 3 The San Bernardino Sectional Center serving 82 affiliated post offices in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Jf\ *tt^t4 T.4 Redlands Yesterdays TELEVISION When the system eventually does get into high gear it will be interesting to see if numbers actually are an improvement over names in the accuracy of mail sorting. If our experience is typical the most common error is for a clerk to confuse Redlands and Redondo. . . an error that works both ways. A letter from Chicago may be a day late arriving in Redlands, having first taken a side excursion to the beach town. Less common is the confusion with Redding, California, probably because Redding is in the north- em end of the state, which is a different part of the postal world. In the newspaper business we are particularly struck with the coincidence that the Redding Searchlight and (he Redlands Facts both receive their mail at P. 0. Box 191. Once in a great FIVE YEARS AGO Temperatures—Highest 91, lowest 56. California Water and Telephone company seeks rate increase amounting to 75 cents per month for four-party line and $1.35 for single line users.

England (UPD—Michael Brooks, 12, said today he would give the barrel of beer he won at a church carnival to his father. while we get a piece of the Searchlight's mail. While ZIP numbers may provide more positive separation of Redlands and Redondo, the system may introduce new errors that only experience will reveal. It is doubtful that Redlands letters ever get missorted, winding up at the small post office of Hinkley, between Victorville and Barstow. However, this does seem a distinct possibility under the ZIP system. The commonest error in numbers, we beUeve, is to reverse a couple of digits. Try this on 92374 (Redlands, main office boxes) and you get 92347 which is Hinkley. We'll be watching.

This description of current reality is reluctantly but earnestly given in private by an informant of the highest competence within the Administration. It was precisely the existence of this reality that led President Kennedy's advisers to encourage him to make a June visit to Europe, if only to demonstrate that .American concern for the Western world had not in fact been submerged by American concern for strictly •American problems. Not since Kennedy came to office has he been so preoccupied by home affairs as in recent weeks by racial difficulties of the United States. .And also not since Kennedy came to office has his chief cold war antagonist, .\ikita Khrushchev, been so preoccupied with home troubles of his oivn — notably his contest with the even more sinister Chinese for mastery of the Communist movement. Actually, these two leaders face much the same kind of problem. Jn the world sense. Kennedy is under rising demands of history to take some step — however bold and dangerous — to restore the free world to true repair and thus to vmdicate in form as well as in fact his right and obligation to lead it. Khrushchev is under the rising demands of personal survival to take some step — however Iwld and dangerous — to prove his headship in that vast prisoner-of- war society which is international communism. His is an insistent challenge from the Chinese, who reject his notion of coexistence and seek instead a military collision with the West. The challenge to Kennedy is as decently motivated as the challenge to Khrushchev is evilly motivated by a spirit of reckless banditry from which even Khrushchev recoils. It is essentially from President Charles de Gaulle of France. De Gaulle threatens not merely the unity of Europe — as in his exclusion of Britain from the Conmion Market — but also the common-sense defense of the West itself. -All high-sounding excuses to tha contrary, he is proceeding in simple truth to an alarming degree on a course of military go-it- alonism. All the same, because he is a man of demonstrated honor and strength and patriotism, de Gaulle is attracting adherents, not merely in Europe but here. too. President Kennedy therefore must, and sooner rather than later, face up to his ultimate test. This is to find an effective means to "tell off de Gaulle." as it is sometimes put, by demonstrating that Gaullism in the West, for all its noble intentions, is an "ism" of irresponsibility which Lhe West simply cannot afford. The French President encourages irrational nationalism all over Europe by his insistence on creating a purely national and and "uidependent" French nuclear force which, in the first place, France is simply unable to mount in adequate strength and which, in the second place, would lead other European nations to demand the same foolish and basically empty status symbol. It is therefore high time for the President, racial crisis or no racial crisis and domestic politics or no domestic politics, to subordinate even these passionate concerns lo the absolutely indispensable concern of ultimate Western security.

Brandstadt At this time of year, a small boy's fancy turns not to love but to baseball. Whether played on a sandlot or on a Little League team there is much to be gained by constructive efforts to improve your child's physical fitness through sports. Parents should be on their guard, however, against allowing a boy's natural enthusiasm to carry him to the point of overdoing. A common injury in 9 to 12- year-old ball players who must throw the ball a lot — and this could apply to any player on the team — is a chip fracture of the elbow. Because the muscles in the arms of these boys are stronger than their bones, violent throwing may tear a small bone chip from the elbow. Once this happens, a boy is out of play for the rest of the season. Parents and coaches have a great responsibility to place a young player's health above winning the game. The chief preventive measure to remember is that conditioning the body m any sport must be gradual. On the emotional side, there is also the danger that, if parents make a child feel chagrin when a game is lost, he may develop a defensive, hostile, or withdrawn personality and, as a result, grow Teletips "Cbriitine Keeler lid,, may tue ruin. youV LIGHTER SIDE Well-rounded personality them a publication called "Clay- boy." .A friend recently sent me some copies of these publications with a suggestion that they might add to my o»-n store of knowledge about brick selling. I appreciated the gesture because, to be frank about it, I have neglected to keep current in this subject. Sometimes I'll let a whole week slip by without giving it a thought. "NADD Magazine" contains a nice editorial balance of business articles (how to win a fight with the boss and still keep eating) and philosojAic reflections (the most important leg of any three- legged stool is the one that's missing). Givts Health Hints It also passes along timely health hints, such as these rules for avoiding summer colds: —Don't fall asleep in the yard with the gate <^)en. —Don't drink from moist By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPD — Among the numerous commercial organ' izations that have headquarters in the nation's capital is the National Association of Distributors and Dealers of Structural Clay Products. Loosely translated, this means that they sell bricks. Like other organizations, great or small, private or governmental, the National Association of Distributors and dealers of Structural Clay Products likes to be known by its initials, in this case "NADD." From time to time, the association will spread culture and enlightenment among the nation's brick sellers by soiding them a publication calling "NADD Magazine."

Brick sellers, however do not live by mortar alone. Every person needs a bit of spice and levity, which is supplied in abundance by "Clayboy." One of the features of "Clay- boy" is a roundup of the jokes told at the last sales meeting. But like most publications, "Clay- l)oy" has a space problem. This the editors have neatly solved by printmg only the punch lines. It also helps keep them in good standing with the postal author- ies. Another feature of "Clayboy" is the "Claymate of the Month," whidi is a picture of a pretty gu-1 fully clothed. This is known as the novelty approach. Taken together, the two publications help brick sellers develop well-rounded personalities. Which is important If they didn't do anything but sell bricks all day, their personalities would be rectangular. to avoid physical activity and competition for fear of losing. This defeats the chief purpose of sports programs for children, which is to build healthy bodies and strong characters. Much is lost if the j'oung player is not inspired with a love of fair play, and if he does not learn to enjoy domg his best regardless of whether he wins or loses. Q—I have read that bone meal tablets will help to keep a child's teeth healthy. Is this true? If so, how old should the child be before he starts taking them? A—Bone meal is used in feed for farm animals and in fertilizer. It is a source of calcium. But for your child, milk is a better source of this vital element. Fluoridation of the local water supply is another important factor in the dental health of children. Q—Our 4-year-old son can't stick out his tongue properly. The end of his tongue roUs under behind his teeth. Can this be corrected? If so, would he have to go in the hospital? A—Your son is tongue-tied, but this minor deviation from normal usually causes no difficulty in eating or talking. These are the two most important functions of the tongue. Since it is not essential that he be able to stick his tongue out, the best atUhori- lics recommend no treatment. THE ALMANAC Today is Monday. June 24, the I73th day of 1963 with 190 to follow.
