Page 12 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA JULY 2, 1963 Where there is faith, parks are built in our town "Faith moves mountains," Robert Browning, the poet said. And it also builds city parks. In Redlands. City Councilman Waldo Burroughs, a hunting and fishing man, has had a notion that a place for kids to fish, and for families to picnic, could be created on the grounds of the city pumping plant just above Highland avenue. But where would the money come from? How could it be financed? That is always the nagging question when somebody says: "We ought to have a park." The Rotarj' Club, which has been park minded for some time, volunteered a contribution of $2,500 to get the work started. Then the Engineering and Grading Conti-actors association said the local chapter would like to supply a fleet of heavy grading equipment owned by its members, and supervise the work. The only cost to the city would be about 53,000 for the equipment operators. On Saturday they moved in and did a Herculean job, as a civic service to Redlands. Without this immense help the cost would have been about $13,500. Some money has been appropriated by the city but it is likely that much more work will be done by volunteers in the couple of years that the take- it-in-phases program of development calls for. At the same time the Evening Kiwanis is working away on a neighborhood park at Texas and Lugo- nia — a spot where a park can well be used. This one is modest in size and is intended primarily for mothers v,nth small children, but vAll have other facilities, too. This is a relatively small club — about 55 men and it means that virtually every member must do a lot of work %vith hand tools. It also means that all members will have to really exert themselves to stage the barbecue in Sylvan Park on Thui-sday, Fourth of July. They have put this event on three times and from experience know how to do the job, evei-y man being given a definite assignment. They will devote the barbecue profits to the park, gradually improving it to meet the careful plan that has been drawn. They have no money at present but they have devotion and faith. But isn't it strange that when you mention Prospect Park there is so little faith? Many people have said that as bull dozere level the lush orange groves to make way for housing tracts we should preserve the sylvan beauty which has historically been the pride and glory of Redlands. Yet, you hear doubts on every hand. The property is too expensive. It's the wrong spot for a park. The tax rate. The voters won't go for it Doubts, doubts, doubts. Isn't it time to pause and put the question the other way? Isn't it time for more people to be asking: "Can't it be done? Isn't there a way to save Prospect as a City Park? Aren't there angles that we haven't e-xplored because -we haven't thought about them?" Faith is building a park in Reservoir Canyon. Faith is building a park on Texas at Lugonia. Can't faith also build a park en Prospect HiU? In fifteen words? Want to blow your cork about boondoggling on a government project in your state? On international affairs?

The government is trying to reduce its stored surpluses, but only in the case of the 5,800,000 pounds of siuplus feathers is the stockpile really down. rS WORLO "// you think Noieow is ieprtuing, ym sbould tu East Berlin." With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore Hundreds of little ponds and lakes reflected the setting sun on their surfaces as we flew toward Omaha Thursday evening. No one had told us that Ne- braslia was a land of many waters. How could this be? The Omaha Worid-H e r a 1 d, which we bought soon after landing, had the answer. As much as 14 inches of rain had poured down on some farms earlier in the week. Friday the paper reported that Governor Morrison had issued a flood-disaster proclamation for seven counties. By Friday afternoon when we started back west, the Missouri river seemed placid, and surprisingly narrow. We guessed that it would be an easy swim from the Nebraska bank to the Iowa shore. .A lone boat was pushing a long freight barge up stream and the skipper had better watch his navigation on that narrow waterway. No wonder an enterprising cattleman had created a sensation a few days earlier when he arrived with a boatload of livestock. He had purchased the animals in the South and fattened them up while barging them to the slaughter house at Omaha. The operation was quite profitable. The river, as a transportation artery, had suddenly come back into its own. Before turning west our pilot flew down the Missouri about 30 miles and wheeled over Nebraska City. We were not too far downstream from Council Bluffs. Iowa, where the covered wagon pioneers began the long journey over the Oregon Trail, and later the river had been bridged by the railroad, westward bound to Promontory Point and the Pacific. At Nebraska City you find the ne.xt kind of bridge — the automobile bridge — and then the singular span that now appears at every great river. It is a suspension bridge that supports a large pipe which carries natural gas across hills and prairies to distant cities. But it was Nebraska City, itself, that caught our fancy. Tliere it was. -Main Street for sure, lined with stores, banks, and businesses and the houses ranging back a few blocks on either side. To the west was a mansion, situated on an estate. Judging by the two-story, brick construction, we guessed it dates to the Twenties. Next to it was a newer house — low, in the modern stylo. Wasn't there a story there. . . the Nebraska City's wealthy banker in his mansion. . . and now the son with his family, following in father's successful footsteps and settled nest door? Westward across Nebraska and upper Kansas the great plains recede away for miles, merging with the brown haze which obscures the horizon. The dirt roads all appear to be oriented east-west, north-south, marking off the farm lands into giant squares. Within each square there is a typical pattern. . . the farm house which is set back from the rural road 100 yards or so. . .the barns behind the house. . .several utility buildings. . .and shade trees. The big square, between the roads which border it, is a mosaic of rectangles. . . long green ones which we suppose are usually com. . . long, tan rectangles of stubble (oats or wheat?). . . and dark brown earth. This repeating pattern extends for miles to the westward, and here is rural America. . . farm houses that are widely scattered . . . unpaved roads. . . small towns. The sameness of the land is its most striking feature. .. and the lack of cities. It is no wonder that Nebraska has the only one-house, non-par- • tisan Legislature in the United States for only in such an homogenous state would that political system work. As the land becomes uneven, the farms disappear, and as you continue toward the Rockies the earth is barren. Only within sight of the mountains do you again find farms, and then for a brief time. Flying over the land you wonder why the pioneers ever set out for California, leaving the fertile great plains behind them, crossing such vast reaches of inhospitable territory. Mile after mile you look down on Colorado and New Jlexico forests where the snows come early and stay late. . . on the Navajo Indian reservation where Shiprock casts its bold shadow on the earth and sand clouds ride the desert wind... the forested Grand Can,von plateau of Arizona, favorable for ranches but not for farms, and then the deserts westward from the Colorado river, as barren as the Moon. Not until the blue waters of Lake Arrowhead appear below the wing, and the airplane glides into the San Bernardino valley does the land seem entirely fit for man.

The morning stars are Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. The evening star is Mars. On this day in history; In 1776, the Continental Congress formally passed the Declaration of Independence, which was signed two days later. In 1881, President James Garfield was shot in the back by a disappointed office-seeker. In 1890, Congress passed the Sherman Antitrust Act, later to be used to break up the business trusts. In 1912, on the 46th ballot. Democrats meeting in Baltimore aominated Woodrow Wilson for President. A thought for the day—English satirist, Jonathan Swift, said: "Every man desires to live long, but no man would be old."

Washington Window Surplus seen in number of deficits By Lyie C. Wilson Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., reminds his fellow citizens that they have much more than merely the big 1963 Treasury deficit to worry about. There is a surplus of deficit all around. Byrd discussed these deficits in a Law Day speech at the University of Virginia. First, Byrd cited the United Nations deficit which amounted on Dec. 31, 1962 to a dues arrearage of more than $121 million. Second is the NATO deficit. Of the 15 NATO nations, Byrd named only Canada and the United States as having met the prescribed goals in quantity and quality of troops provided. The third deficit is in the balance of payments between the United States and all other nations with which the United States engages in foreign trade. "We spent $2.2 billion more in foreign countries in calendar year 1962 than we took in from transactions abroad," Byrd said. "Our money went out in foreign aid, maintenance of troops around the world, migration of U.S. business, tourist expenditures, purchases of imports, etc. We have run deficits in these accounts for 12 of the past 13 years. This has resulted in the loss of two-thirds of our gold. Gold backs the dollar." Fourth Deficit Noted The fourth deficit, of course, is the Treasury figure for government operations in fiscal year 1963. Fiscal '63 ended last midnight. The precise deficit may not be immediately known but it is e-xpected to range from $6 to $8 billion. This '63 Treasury deficit is the 27th since 1930. A chairman and board of directors of any company with that kind of a non-earning, deficit record would be voted out of office and into disgrace by any group of share owners. But Franklin D. Roosevelt was kept in office as long as he lived once he gained the White House. Harrj- S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower were re-elected despite deficit records almost as bad as FDR's. And John F. Kennedy's re-election chances seem not to be much dimmed merely because he is not planning to balance the Treasury books in his first term nor likely to balance the books in a second term if he is re-elected. Kennedy's present program projects Treasury deficits through 1967. Discount Unbalanced Budget The President's economic advisers downrate any preoccupation with a balanced budget as an outmoded conformity with a puritan ethic. Byrd's response to such reasoning is a shocked reassertion of the old time economic religion. "We are surrounded," he said, "by deficits. And with them we have debt and inflation: we have balance of payments trouble; we have dwindling gold reserves. "Gold backs our money and some S12 billion in gold is required for that purpose. We had more than $24 billion in gold in 1949. Now we have less than SI6 billion. We are within S4 billion of the amount required to back the dollar, and the gold still is going out. "I regard this as our most serious fiscal and monetary problem. If the time comes when we cannot offer doUars-or-gold convertibility in our foreign transactions, we shall be faced with a catastrophic situation. "For years we have given foreign governments and their central banks the option of taking payments for (trade balance) deficits in dollars or in gold at the statutory rate of $35 an ounce. "They take gold instead of dollars if their confidence in our dollar is impaired. They have taken two-thirds of our free gold since 1349." DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Common dust sometimes can stir up allergies By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI)-"I stuck my head into the office of House Clerk Ralph Roberts and asked "do you have a couple of comedians in here?" "The place is full of them," the receptionist said. "Which two are you looking for?" I was looking for Marty Allen and Steve Rossi, who showed up a couple of minutes later and requested information on bow to register as lobbyists. It gets a bit complicated trying to explain why a night club and television comedy team was interested in lobbying. But I'll do the best I can. It is the practice of big name comics these days to associate themselves with "causes," usually one that is identified with health. As to whether this has anything to do with the outbreak of sick jokes I am not prepared to say. At any rate. Allen and Rossi have reached the upper stratum of clowning owing in part to a boost they got from astronaut Gordon Cooper. During his recent orbital flight. Cooper paid them the honor of borrowing a line from one of their routines. In case you missed it, it was "hello down dere." So now they have taken the next logical step by linking themselves with a "cause," m this case the Epilepsy Foundation. They came to the Capitol this week to confer with Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy. D-Minn.. about a bill he has introduced to provide federal assistance for improving methods of educating students with epilepsy. But first they took the precaution of obtaming lobbying registration forms. All clear? I asked Allen if there was anything else he planned to do while be was in the Capitol. "Yes," he said, "I want to see Senator Goldwater. I want to return some cuff links I bought at his store." SELL IT TOMORROW With an inexpensive aassified Ad Q—I have an allergy to dust. What is the treatment? A—In some persons with a hard- to-define allergy, common house dust may be the culprit. But often it is hard to pinpoint the element in the dust that is responsible. Dust is a combination of human and animal dandruff, molds from both outdoors and indoors, lint, clay, and soot. The treatment is similar to that for any other allergy. Avoid contact with dust, especially by inhalation, as much as possible. Your doctor may prescribe epinephrine and antihistamines for relief of symptoms. For long-range protection, get desentitizing shots. Although commercially prepared house dust antigen can be used for this purpose, the best results are usually obtained by using a preparation made from the sweepings in your home. Q—Tests show that my adrenal glands are overactive. Is this Cushing's disease? Could it cause cancer? A—Cushing's disease shows up in an excess of fat which acum- ulates in the face, causing "Moon- face"; in back of the shoulders, causing "buffalo hump"; and in the adomen. The blood pressure is increased, the victim tires easily, there is an excessive growth of hair on the usually nonhairy parts, there may be bleeding under the skin, and the bones become weak through a lack of ability to retain calcium. As a result, they may collapse. With more than half of the victims, a tumor of the adrenal gland is the cause. Changes in the pitu- tary gland are usually present.

Since some of the tumors of the adrenal associated with Cushing's disease are malignant, it would be more correct to say that this type of cancer is a cause of the hyperactivity of the adrenals than that the hyperactivity caused the cancer. Surgical removal of the adrenals is the recommended treatment, in any'case. This was not possible tiefore adrenal cortical hormones became available but now, with these supplements to replace the essential adrenal secretions, persons with Cushing's disease can be restored to a more normal life. Q—My right hand turns numb when I go to bed every night. What would cause this? .A—Numbness can result from injury to a sensory nerve in the hand or to a disease anywhere throughout the sensory pathways. It is impossible to pinpoint the cause of your numbness without a thorough examination. Q—What is radiculitis? My doctor has me wear a body brace for it. A—Radiculitis is an inflammation of the root of one of the large nerves that branches off from the spinal cord. A body brace should help you to avoid making movements that would irritate this nerve. Treatment depends on the cause. Please send your questions and comments to Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D.. in care of this paper. While Dr. Brandstadt cannot answer individual letters, he will ansNver letters of general interest in future columns. New You Know By United Press International Among the inventions of Leonardo da Vinci was a forerunner of the armored tank which he said was designed to force "even the largest masses" to retreat, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica. The "median" is the point on a statistical scale above which and below which is 50 per cent of the distribution. As a measure of central tendency it has the advantage over the "arithmetical mean" or average. It remains unaffected by un- i usually high or low values of the variable. Given the values 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 100, the. median is 6 but the arithmetical mean is 19. © Enqrclopaedia Britannica
