A few curious people have examined the book at A. K. Smiley Public Library in recent days, but only one or two persons have ob jected to its presence in the library. Head Librarian Edith Taylor declared that recent public reaction to the slang dictionary is "ridiculous." She pointed out that the reference book has been on the shelf at Smiley Library since January 31, 1%2. Attacks against the Dictionary of American Slang and efforts to have it removed from public and school libraries have been based on the inclusion of obscene words and definitions in the book. Miss Taylor termed the dictionary a valid reference tool for writers and explained that it was not much different th^n the Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English which also contains "vulgarisms" and which has been in the library since 1950. "So far, tlie 18 or 20 people who have examined the book recently have been satisfied that the dictionary is a proper reference book," she said. The dictionary is kept in a locked shelf and is issued out only on request. "It has never been used to any great extent," Miss Taylor related. The University of Redlands library also has a copy of the controversial book. At the UR, however, the slang dictionary is kept on an open shelf. It was placed on the reference shelf in the summa: of I96I. Public reaction has missed the Redlands High school library al together because the school K- brar>- does not have a copy of the dictionary. We have never deemed it necessary," RHS Librarian Dorothy Lagather stated. Local book stores have also felt a slight reaction to the American Slang storm. The Harris Book store reported that in the past two weeks it had received one order for the book and that at least three persons have asked about it. Serr's Stationery has also received a few inquiries, hut has not had an order for the dictionary. Local stores do not stock the book. County Supervisor Paul J. Profile Of a Satellite Three held when bonds found CHICAGO (UP!) - Three New York men were held on $10,000 bond each today after Federal Bureau of Investigation agents found a half-million dollars in stolen stocks and bonds in their hotel room. Agents entered the hotel room with a warrant for the arrest of Arnold D. Naidich, 39, a New York atomej', on charges of jumping bond on a theft charge. Inside the room, agents found Naidich and John B. Sullivan, 64, Brooklyn, N.Y., working over the bonds, which were spread out across a bed.

This evening the artificial star wiU be North of the City at 9:33 p.m., 52 degrees above the horizon and moving southeasterly. The 100-foot diameter balloon of aluminum mylar construction is wrinkled and deflated but is still being used for successful communications between distant points. One manufacturer of electronic equipment uses the satellite to bounce signals between its plants in Iowa and Texas. Recent observations by NASA technicians indicate that Echo has deflated in size to about one-half of its original fully-inflated size. Echo I, in its journey through space travelled more than 380,000,000 miles. However, they point out that Echo is constantly changing its orbit from a relatively circular orbit (apogee 1,M9 miles, perigee 945 miles) to a more elliptical one and back to the near circular path about the earth. During each cycle when the Echo's perigee is reaching its lowest point (about 800 miles) there is a chance that it may lose enough speed to reenter the atmosphere and bum up. Yucaipa growth to cause change in precincts Population growth in the Yu caipa area will make substantial changes necessary in the boundaries of existing voting precincts plus the addition of eight new ones according to a report to the Board of Supervisors by Mrs. Eleanor Felton, county registrar of voters. With the addition of eight more, the Yucaipa area will have a total of 47 voting precincts. The new ones will be numbired from 40 through 47 inclusive. Boundary changes will be made in precincts 5, 7, 8, 10, 14, 16, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 36, 38 and 39. Similar changes were made in Redlands boundaries several weeks ago, along with additions. The realignments are made to conform to a state law providing for a maximum of 250 registered voters in each precinct. Young of Colton yesterday sought to have the dictionary removed from the county librai-y, but his attempt was not supported by supervisors S. Wesley Break and Nancy Smith. Young reportedly charged his colleagues with lackuig courage for not seconding his motion. Mrs. Smith said that county 11 brarian Dorothy Traver had defended the book as a "serious study" of slang compiled after many years of research. "I hope this board never gets into the ugly area of censorship," Mrs. Smith added. >lnnouncefnenf of Services LYONS, Thomas W.

Slang Dictionary Should Be Viewed With Perspective Editor Facts: I have a few observations on the furor stirred up by persons in California who have recently discovered that the Dictionary of American Slang contains taboo words connected with sex. First, the inclusion of taboo words in dictionaries of English is not new; it has been going on for 300 years. Even the supremely respectable Vvebster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition (1935) contains the milder ones, and the Third has some that aren't mild. Eric Partridge' Dictionary of Slang (1937, 1938, 1949) treats taboo words with thoroughness that approaches the handling In the Dictionary of American Slang (Partridge is long respected and beloved Brit ish scholar and a very conserva five gentleman). State Superintendent Rafferty's much quoted label of the diction ary as "a practicing handbook of sexual perversion" is a gross distortion to say the least. Actually, the taboo words make up a small part of the total vocabulary of the dictionary — as the list-makers have, I'm sure, discovered. The lexicographer is a social scientist engaged in recording one as pect of man's behavior, namely his linguistic behavior. By mod em standards of scholarship in the sciences and social sciences, it is hard to see how the exclusion of taboo words from any diction ary of slang could be justified. Of more interest to parents, though, than the obligations of scholarly thoroughness, is another point. A dictionary — an alphabetical list of words concisely and impersonally defined — just isn't the place where one goes for sen sual stimulation. It is not so much a word itself, merely a succession of sounds or letters, that affects the reader, but the way in which the word is used. The context, the intent behind the word, is what stunulates the mind of the reader. In fact, highly suggestive writing or speaking is possible without the use of any taboo words at all; the evidence is available on practically any newsstand. The filthy-word list, which we are told is to be printed and distributed throughout the state, by certain excited individuals, is a prime example of changing the effect of words by changing the context. When you extract all the taboo words of any dictionary and put them together in a list and say "My, isn't this dirty!" it does become dirty. One can only agree with Bishop Kennedy (at the Methodist Conference in Redlands last week) and Thomas W. Braden in questioning not only the judgment but also the morality (perhaps even the sanity!) of persons who dirty their own minds and the minds of others by such filth peddling — all in the name of morality! What a pity that these self- styled protectors of the morals of children do not put the money to be spent in printing and distributing their list into a cause that would advance rather than undermine their alleged purpose: for example, sending children to summer Scout or Y camps. WiUiam G. Stryker 512 S. University street Forest crews battle fire on desert U. S. Forest Service fire crews reportedly were battling a major blaze five miles south of Cabazon today in what was described as "the thickest brush in Southern California. The Forest Service dispatcher at Del Rosa announced shortly after noon that the fire had been contained within 10 acres but was "still definitely not under control." Some 120 men were said to be on the fire line located about two miles from the Twin Pines Boy's ranch. The ranch was not in any immediate danger, but a shift in wind would make the fire "a direct threat" to the ranch, according to the Forest Service report. The fire broke out about 9:45 a.m. in brush said to be 25 feet high. Aerial tankers apparently had stalled the fire's advance with borate. The blaze is within the San Bernardino National Forest boun daries and was burning in the di rection of the Black Mountain recreation area. Redlands Daily Facts Tuesday, July 2, 1963 - 5 Rules tightened on Mexicans entering U.S. WASHINGTON (UPD-The Labor Department has announced a tightening of regulations under which Mexican workers are allowed to enter the United States as permanent residents. The new rules require that jobbers be endorsed by the local state employment service. A spokesman for the department said Monday the new rules meant that the U.S. Bureau of Employment Security would in each instance have an opportunity to determine whether the Mexican's entry would "adversely affect" the wages and working conditions of domestic workers. Under previous rules, the immigrant was required only to present proof to a U.S. consular official that he had a bonafide offer of a year-round job. The new procedure, the spokesman said, would allow local officials a chance to notify the would- be employer that a qualified domestic worker was available for the job. EL CENTRO (UPD-Tmperial Valley agricultural leaders said Monday that they e.\pected the tightening of regulations governing the entrance of Mexican workers into the Um'ted States would not greatly affect local farm production. A more uncertain future, however, was forecast for Mexican workers employed as clerks, domestics and mechanics in Imperial Valley centers. Tne new rules, announced by the Labor Department in Washington, require that employment offers be endorsed by the local state employment service. Herb Lee, president of the Imperial Valley Farmers Association, said, "Other than harass- SPECIAL AUTOGRAPH - Dr. Lawrence E.

United GOP hear policy talk Members of the United Republicans of California held their monthly meeting in the Community room of the Security National bank last evening with approximately 30 members heard a brief "policy talk" by Warren Hooper, president pro tern. Greater participation by Republicans in the affairs of their party, education on party policies, and active party work at the precinct level in cooperation with the regular party organization, v,-ere points stressed by Mr. Hooper. Dues of the organization, he stated, are two dollars a year. Chuck Bishop is secretary-treasurer. "We hope to stress the conservative image of the Republican Forest service warns of fireworks ban Forest Supervisor Don R. Bauer stated today that the discharge, possession, sale or offering for sale of any type of fireworks in San Benjardino or Riverside Counties is prohibited by law. All areas within the San Bernardino National Forest will be extensively patrolled on the ground and in the air, to insure that no forest fires are started by the careless use of fireworks.

Puce is the Respensibility ef Citizens ef All Ages Editor Facts: The other day I met a newcom er to Redlands who expressed some very pessimistic views about the future of humanity. He is what we call an "old-timer." And he used his age as an excuse for not being very concerned about the possibility of nuclear destruction. I believe that in this question age makes no difference. All responsible Americans are now rightly and urgently concerned about this problem. Winning the peace is the most important issue which our government now faces. No American wants war. Our leaders are now working hard to win the peace. And it must eventually be won. But our representatives cannot do this alone. We must all as citizens accept our responsibility. We must all help set the stage for a peaceful world. Our task is new. Throughout history men have prepared themselves for war. But in our time, we must prepare for peace. Each of us works in the way he thinks best. The important tiling is that we all, every one of us, take a part. Kenneth Willing P.O. Box 536 Yucaipa DEATHS KESSLER - Died in Baker, Calif.
