Page 12 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA JULY 9, 1963 Will the California water plan serve all areas? The question now facing the California Division of Water Resources is this: Did the people of California approve a California water plan, or did they just vote to assist the Metropolitan Water District in augmenting its supply? This question is brought into currency by the automatic working of the law and by tlie acts of JIWD. The California water plan provided that by June 30, 1963 the agencies contracting for northern water would specify when and where they wanted water, and in what quantities. MWD has specified that it wants water delivered to it in Los Angeles county by 1971, but wants the East Branch (high line) which would bring water directly to our valley delayed until 1985. However, nine agencies which have contracted for state water have requested delivery through the East branch by 1972. If the state accepts, without change, the position of RRVD, we will not have a project to ser\-e all contracting agencies down here by 1972. Although certain areas could be served by the initial system that ]\RVD advocates, others would not. Excluded would be the high desert of the Victorville, Apple Valley area, the Beaumont-Banning Pass area, and the Coachella Valley ai-ea. While the Metropolitan plan includes a pipe line that would come eastward from Los Angeles County to the Penis reservoir near Mai-ch AFB, this line is nowhere near as satisfactory for this valley as the East Branch would be. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore While witing the Grain of Salt Thursday afternoon we felt a twitch about one inch under the skuU. That unscratchable itch should have told us that some one was tuned in on our brain waves by mental telepathy ... but we didn't catch on. So we tapped out the piece about the Redlands High School graduates who had won California State Scholarship grants which they might never receive because the Legislature had appropriated for some awards, but not for others. Whoever was practicing mental telepathy up in Sacramento said: "This will never do. We'll have to straighten out those kids in Redlands right away." Saturday, the day following the publication of our column piece, a letter came to Penelope Stanley — one of the students we mentioned. The substance of the letter was: rela.\, Penelope, you'll get the grant. The other Redlands winners, we hope, received similar assurance. Did you recognize the picture of the granite boulder at Church and Lugonia, published in the Facts July 1, and again yesterday? Horace P. Hinckley did. because he was a civil engineer super\'ising U'PA projects when it was erected. He wrote to Dorothy Brenan, chairman of the Historical Landmarks game committee, as follows: "The picture, of course, marks the site of our first schoolhouse. "The interesting thing about it is the storj- behind the securing "Could Be We Tip the Thing the Wrong Way!" Too righteous, too humorless Many who voted for the California water plan understood that it was to bring into flower many inh^^^n'^ ™rwas"bacl-r;h1 "have not" areas, and thus it was truly a state days when we had literally hun- plan — not just an IMWD deal. Only by sticking by the East Branch plan will the state keep faith with them. Teletips TELEVISION Eureka—at last! One of the curious acts of the General Session of the California Legislature this year was to adopt as the official State motto: "Eureka". This was a strange thing to do because any Old California Hand could tell you that the state has — and always has had — a motto and that it is: "Eureka". Even wTiters, noted for their fastidious care with facts, would assure you on this point. Phil Townsend Hanna, in his "Dictionary of California Land Names", in explaining how the northern City, Eureka was named, wrote: "Legend has it that when Ryan's vessel landed here in 1850 he exclaimed 'Eureka'. The name, a Greek word meaning 'I have found it!' was in common use in California at the time for it was adopted as the State motto when the people ratified the State constitution, November 13, 1849." Hanna wasn't writing without foundation for the Constitutional Convention of 1849 did adopt "T h e Great Seal of the State of California". Here is a reproduction of it and as you can see "Eureka" ap­ pears above the spear of the Goddess Minerva. The design was dra\vn by Major Robert Sheldon Garnett of the U. S. Army. Caleb Lyon, a clerk of the convention, concluded an explanation of the seal in the Convention Journal of September 29,1849, with this sentence: "A miner is engaged vnth a rocker and bowl at his side, illusti'ating the golden wealth of the Sacramento upon whose waters are seen shipping typical of commercial greatness. . . while above is the Greek motto 'Eureka' (I have found it) applying either to the principle involved in the admission of the State or the success of the miner at work." A non-legal mind would suppose that the adoption of the Great Seal would be sufficient to make Eureka, at the same stroke, the official motto of California. But you know how lawyers are: unless the "i" is dotted and the "t" crossed, it isn't official. It could only be established beyond doubt that our official complement included tiie Bear Flag, the Valley Quail as our State Bird, the Redwood as our State Tree, the Golden Trout as our State Fish, and the Golden Poppy as our State Flower. Now, after nearly 104 years, "Eureka" has been given the status that every true-blue Californian always thought it already had. Great is the majesty of the law. dreds of men on relief and those of us in charge of the projects were hard put to find jobs for the halt and the blind who showed up with work relief tickets. "I remember picking several elderly men and giving each one a different colored piece of chalk, then sending them to comb the Wash from Orange St. to Forest Home to find a suitable boulder for a marker. They spent days on the project and even at $3.C0 each per day I was beginning to have qualms about how much time was showing up on the payroll for this project. "Finally they reported that they had several stones picked out so 1 delegated a truck driver to take several men and bring the best one. The truck driver took one look at the stones they had chosen, concluded that they were unsuitable, drove back to the mouth of Mill Creek canyon and picked up a rock lying alongside the road and that is the marker. ".Moral: one practical truck drive is worth $250 of Leaf rakers'." Beattie's schoolhouse was not demolished when it could no longer hold enough students. It was moved across Lugonia avenue to the southwest comer. There it was incorporated into the Truman Reeves house and you were only aware of its presence when some knowledgeable local historian, like Don Anderson, pointed it out. A few years ago the Reeves house was demolished, and with it, the No. 1. school. The house had extended the natural life of the little building by at least one generation. "When the familiar e.x-GI bombers dropped their loads of fire retardant chemicals on the blaze near Cabazon Saturday, onlookers blinked and took a second look," The Riverside Press reports. "The 600-gallon mess that came from tanks was rust red, not the pallid pink of Bentonite or the dirty white smudge charasteristic of Borate. "Phos-Chek, a new phosphorous base chemical developed by Monsanto, is an apparent success, although state and federal firemen are not ready to label it more than an experiment, 'Hemet-'Ryan Airport person-, nel who load the big ex-TBM planes with the heavy mixture on a three-minute land and load and takeoff schedule are hopeful that Phos-Chek will have the power of Borate, but without the sterilization and plant growth retarding effect of this product. And it should have more fire quenching strength than Bentonite." TOP SHOW: - 10:30, Chan. i. "Report From".

White With all the eager attentiveness of one pro watching another at work in a tight spot, American politicians are sympathetically eyeing a tense transatlantic test of personal political skill. This is Prime Minister Harold Macmillan's combat against outrageous fortune — and the Labor party — in England. "Old Mac" now has more than the unexpressed good wishes of most of our political men. He also has recaptured their admiration as carefully and ably he attempts to come back in the tenth round in his struggle with Laborite Harold Wilson for future control of the British government. Until recently the view was universal here that Macmillan, buffeted by a nasty sex scandal to add to all his other difficulties, was as good as finished off. Expert opinion now sees him as still in the ring, not so much because his posture is inherently strong as because of the conviction that Wilson will overreach in trying for a quick kill. When the John Profumo affair first broke out in Parliament, it had looked here that Macmillan could not possibly siu-vive, having in mind that his administration, long in office, was already beset on half a dozen other counts. Harold Wilson, for his part, opened Labor's attack with a prudent and fair understatement so wise as to gain him high notices from political critics on both sides of the ocean. Macmillan's initial defense in Parliament, moreover, was widely seen as rather weak. Still, it soon developed that he had not spent a lifetime in politics for nothing. From his poor beginning he suddenly pulled himself together. He gathered up his considerable dignity and began to present himself, with a good deal of justice, as a patient victim of circumstances whose ample apologies for a scandal he never made were being met by a small- minded and querulous Labor opposition which believed in irredeemable sin. At this point the bout began to turn, not actually in Macmillan's favor but at all events no longer quite so totally in Wilson's favor. For Wilson, unwisely losing his head at Macmillan's calm assumption that quite enough had now been said of the business, quite unwisely began to justify Macmillan's implications that his opposition was going beyond the bounds of fair play. Wilson began to display that almost-universal mark of his kind of professionally liberal politician, a pettiness at the hour of apparent victory and a lack of generosity toward the apparently fallen foe. Coupled with this, there began to arise from Labor generally that unpleasant odor of special sanctity which always hovers about self-righteous political movements, like the smell of moth balls from the closet of some excessively pious and everlastingly lecturing maiden aunt. If Jtacmillan is to be saved at all. and, of course, lamentably the odds are still greatly against him, only Wilson and what Wilson typifies can save him. What Wilson typifies is an eye-squinting "intellectual" approach to political life that is all right in planning enterprises but is often inadequate at the human showdown. It blathers constantly, and usually truthfully, about its compassion for mankind in the large abstract. But it is notably ungenerous toward man the individual. Wilson, in short, is not and never will be in the true inner club of Anglo-American politicans. A smallness of personal spirit almost invariably accompanies the high motives of professionlly reformist politicians — and this the club has never liked and never will. We have some of this type on this side of the world, notably in the Senate, and they have the same disability. They often tend to defeat their own purposes by umvittingly rallying the pro-underdog vote to those they atack too righteously and far too humoriessly.

LIGHTER SIDE Patent office swamped •f... And Vm Jim lormal. Welcome to our little iartyl" By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPD-Accord- ing to a magazine article published this week, the United States is experiencing an invention explosion of even greater magnitude than the population ex plosion. Our old Yankee ingenuity is sparking new ideas so fast that the U.S. Patent Office can't keep up with them. At last count, it was almost 200,000 applications behind. To realize how really big the backlog is, one must consider a statement made by Patent Commissioner David L. Ladd in an interview with U.S. News 4 World Report. Ladd said the problem could not be solved by hiring more em­ ployes. I never thought I'd live to see the day whan a bureaucrat would make a statement like that. Picks Up List It shook me up so much that I stopped by the Patent Office and picked up a copy of its weekly list of new inventions. I could Q—My husband gets canker sores in his mouth. He has used many treatments but they always come back and are hard to get rid of. What causes them and is there any cure? A—Canker sores are usually caused by a virus. But in some persons a food allergy appears to be the cause. Recurrences are the rule rather than the exception. A new chemical, 5-iododeoxyuri- dine, has been found to cure the disease, a solution of the drug is painted on the sore or it is applied in an ointment. Healing occurs in 1 to 5 days instead of the usual 2 or 3 weeks. Furthermore recurrences are apparently checked although the drug has not been used long ^ough to be sure of this. The drug is not yet on the market but it can be obtained from Smith, Kline and French by your doctor. Q—My doctor says I have nasal polyps which must be removed. Is this a serious operation? A—Although all operations are serious, the removal of nasal polyps is relatively simple. Since such polyps are often caused by an allergy you should have this angle investigated. If allergy is the cause and it is not treated, the polyps will return after they have been removed. If they are interfering with your breathing they should, of course, be cut out. Q—Will the prolonged use of nicotinic acid have any side effects? It was prescribed along with meclizine (Bonine) for dizzy spells. A—Small or moderate doses of nicotinic acid, which is a vitamin, may be taken for prolonged periods without harmful side effects. Very large doses may cause flushing of the face and neck, but even this is not harmful and quickly passes. Q—My 17-year-old daughter has severe cramps with the onset of each menstrual period, these are common they are not usually as severe as those you describe. Since the usual pain killers have not given any relief, your doctor may want to have your daughter ti-y dienstrol (Synestrol) daily in the interval between her periods. The dose must be carefully adjusted to meet your daughter's individual need. This drug has relieved 90 per cent of those on whom it has been tried. If this does not work, emotional factors must be sought because some girls build up enormous tensions over this natural function. If this is the cause, the sympathetic guidance of a doctor trained in treating emotional difficulties should be consulted. In extreme cases the sympathetic nerve roots coming out of the lower segments of the spinal cord have been cut, but such extreme measures are rarely advisable. 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 an- ser letters of general interest in future columns. THE ALMANAC Today is Tuesday, July 9, the 190th day of 1963 with 175 to follow.

In 1850, President Zachary Taylor died of typhoid in the White House after serving only one year and four months of his term. In 1943, the United States, Canada and England invaded Sicily.
