Page 20 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA JULY 10, 1963 A sense of history has long prevailed in Redlands Many people are now reading Dr. LawTcnce E. Nelson's "Only One Redlands" and they are discovering for themselves the pei-sonality of this latest volume of our history. They find it quick-paced, sparkling and good natui-ed. They do not, however, find that it is the complete history of Redlands in a single volume. Nor did the author ever intend that they should — for two reasons. First, tlie economics of publishing a local history severely limit the number of pages that may be included. The autlior must first write his precious manuscript, piune it severely and then re-write for further condensation. No one knows better than the local historian how much detail he is compelled to omit. Second, Redlanders ai'e blessed with histoi-y and the person who wishes to read further may turn to other sources. Dr. Nelson wrote "Only One Redlands" to complement eai'Iier histories — not to replace them. What are these works? In 1897 the Daily Facts published "Illustrated Redlands", the pictures being pj-incipally of the substantial citizens and their homes. These are accompanied by biographies which reveal not only a great deal about who the founders were, but of their part in building the then small but booming town. Introductory material also gives a short history of Redlands. In 1904, "Ingersoll's Annals of San Bernardino County" came from the press and the Redlands chapters are rich in formal, basic history. Some biographies are also included. In 1906 Mi-s. E. P. R. Crafts followed with "Pioneer Daj's in the San Bernardino Valley". Then SO yeai-s of age, Mrs. Crafts told her stoiy from a quite personal viewpoint, much of it pertaining to San Bernardino and the Craf ton district east of Redlands, but not excluding Redlands history. Although various illusti-ated booklets and books were published in railroad days, mostly for the flourishing tourist trade, it was not until 1938 that another substantial history appeared. This was the Golden Jubilee book, edited by Envin Hein, and issued for the celebration in 193S. While it includes much historical writing and art it is strong in biog- raphes of well known Redlandere of the day in which it was written. In that respect, it is similar to "Illustrated Redlands." In 1939, Mr. and Mrs. George W. Beattie issued "Heritage of the Valley". They were extremely scholarly in their methods and went to mission documents, legal documents in the county recorder's office, to official sources in Washington, and so on. They started with Indian Days and worked in detail through the Mission Period, the Rancho Days, the Mormon Period and then through the Civil War Period. "Heritage" ends at a time when Redlands was nothing but a poor sheep pastui-e, the city yet to come. In 1951, Edith Parker Hinckley, brought out "On the Banks of the Zanja" w^hich is stxtictured as a formal histoiy of Redlands. This is a splendid introduction, and is solidly based on her knowledge of Redlands as the wife of the man who was city en- ^neer (virtually city manager) for most of his adult life. It also includes many womanly insights. With a supplementary booklet, "Redlands, 19501960", she brought the story up to date. In 1958 Dr. Nelson \vrote "Redlands: Biogi'aphy of a College", the story of the University, an institution that is inseperable from the story of the city of Redlands, itself. All of this bibliography reflects a concern for history by those who have known Redlands well. Scipio Craig, editor of the pioneer "Citrograph," printed his ne\vspaper on book paper, and had it bound six months to the volume, instead of the convential 12 months, "for the convenience of future historians." While Redlands may not be sure where it is headed in the fiiture, there is no excuse for failing to know from where w^e have come. Our histoiy is well recorded. The Newsreel Kremlinology is a new science, but w-e still have the feeling that figuring out from outside what's going on inside the Kremlin is about as scientific as judging a watermelon by plunking it It's not that the little body down the street minds spending the craft periods at camp making a beaded belt for his father, but he is a little put out because every year it takes more beads.

It's not only relaxing, but we like to think of some archaeologist, a few thousand years from now, trying to translate it With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore Camping at Trail Fork Spring Saturday evening, a group of Redlands Boy Scouts toolt a moonlight stroll along the ridge of Mt. San Bernardino. .•\t their elevation, which was about 10,400 feet, the sky was clear and even in the bright moonlight the stars sparkled. As they approached the knob which is the East Peak of Mt. San Bernardino they saw something in the Big Dipper which fixed the time to the minute. What did they see? What time was it? Only a space-age Boy Scout would know both answers. They saw Echo, coming right up through the Dipper to the zenith. The time was 9:27, the satellite being punctual in keeping its date with the constellation. A decent respect for a mountain requires that the ascent be earned. This platoon of scouts qualifies. Their leaders did not let them set off on a mad scramble tn sec who could be the first to the top fand collect the worst foot blisters, the deepest fatigue, and stoutest resolution "•to never do it again".) Rather, the boys began a series of conditioning hikes as far back •ns last February. First there were day hikes of moderate length. Then, when they were ready, a climb from Camp Angelus to Mt. San Bernardino and another from Idyllwild to the top of Mt. San Jacinto. Being in physical and mental condition for the outing, they backpacked during the past week-end. in reasonable stages. On the first afternoon they hiked from Jlill Creek to High Creek. That put them within good range of Ml San Gorgonio Saturday morning, and gave them time lor the walk west along the high, continuous ridge of Mt. San Bernardino. Then they camped and on Sunday, went on down to Camp Angelus. That's a fine hike and, if properly done, a fully rewarding one. On bchalX of those scouts it should also he noted that they and their leaders have a%oided the "Highway 99" to Grayback — the trail from Poop Out Hill to South Fork Meadow, passing Dollar Lake and along the ridge to the Summit. "Everybody" goes that way. There are many inlersting miles of trails in the San Gorgonio Wild Area in addition to "Highway 99" and these scouts have had the originality to seek out the routes. Not only have they avoided the crowds; they have also become familiar with country that many others have overlooked. If the San Gorgonio Wild Area is going to stay wild in fact as well as m name, many more people must follow the lead of the Redlands scouts, and scatter out. South Fork Meadow and Dollar Lake will become mountain ghettos unless the backpackers disperse through the high country. Over on Mt. San Jacinto there will be an easier way up part of •the mountain, beginning in mid- September. The Palm Springs Tram will then be in commercial operation. Soon after it opens we expect to hear someone tell how expensive they found the outing to be. We anticipate this on the basis of the S4.50 fare for the round trip ride, and the $5.50 dinner to be served by the concessionaire at the top of the lift. If there are four in the party, they have a drink before dinner, and give the waiter a standard tip, the tram outing will cost nearly $50. There is no requirement that you buy more than a tram ticket but many tourists, without thinking about the total cost in advance, will find themselves taking the line of least resistance into a larger expenditure than they had wished. Those who take what the publicity agents call "The First Ride," on September 12. know what they are getting in for. The tickets will be $1,000 each. There will be 50 o£ them; 25 are already sold.

Wilson The sands are shifting beneath the foundations of President Kennedy's civil rights proposals. There is. for example, the matter of compromising a moral issue. There is the !uriher matter of imposing morality by law. These matters arise especially in consideration of that part of the Kennedy proposal that would legislate the desegregation of all places of public accommodation. It is argued that the federal government has a moral responsibility to desegregate all places of public accommodation even though thousands of those places are mere mom-and-pop operations or Jlrs. Murphy tourist homes and boarding houses. But it also argued that the federal government could not in good conscience impose this particular morality on such as these small, family public accommodations. It is argued, also, that the imposition could not be enforced even though the armed forces were summoned to compel all of the Mrs. Murphys to bed down unwanted customers, or the moms and pops to serve them. These latter arguments apparently possess great force because there is a disposition on the part of the Kennedy administration to back away from the federal de- segragation of Mrs. Murphy's spare bedrooms, for example, as well as the little business operated by Mom and Pop. Nor do the Kennedys alone seem to hesitate. Sen. Jacob K. Javits. R-N.V.. is an all-out civil rights politician. Vet he told a television audience last week that some compromise may be necessary to obtain legislation on public accommodations. He implied that business volume or the number of employes might need to be considered in determining exemp­ tions. But Javits was insisting Tuesday that the public accommodations section should cover everything, including Jlrs. Murphy's tourist home. Javits regards civil rights as a matter of morals. To exempt little business probably is good, practical politics. But it seems not to be good morals. If the Waldorf Astoria must be integrated as a matter of morality, at what point do\vn the business scale toward Mrs. Murphy's motel does morality cease to be the controlling factor so that practical politics may take over? That is a question the pratical politicians cannot answer. Question Stilf Unanswered They may soften its impact but they can't answer it. For example, Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy told a House committee during civil rights hearings that the Justice Department had considered a cut-off point based on business volume or number of employes. But the department rejected the idea, he said, because it seemed not to make sense to say that big business could not discriminate but that little business could. But Kennedy also testified that the bill as drafted was not de- sisned to desegregate very small operations, notably tourist homes where the owTier operates the business and lives on the premises. That seems not to make much sense, either, if the questions is one of morality. Perhaps it is the puritan ethic again haunting the congressional conscience as when President Kennedy proposed to continue deficit spenduig to help finance a tax cut. It is well known that the puritans were squares of the worst kind, but they believed in living within their income. They didn't believe in compromising moral issues.

Most of his clothing should be removed or at least loosened to allow maximum contact with air. He should be sponged with cold water and fanned. Do not try to give him liquids by mouth if he is unconscious as this will choke him. If he is concious, let him drink water to which salt has been added — about a teaspoonful to a quart. If he becomes cold and clammy he has heat prostration, wrap him in a blanket and call a doctor at once. If, on the other hand, the skin becomes hot and dry he has a heat stroke. Immerse him in a tub of ice water and have someone call a doctor without delay. These are frue emergencies and sometimes fatal. All this can be pre\'ented, of course, by using moderation.Don't stay in the hot sun more than a few minutes at a time until you have become acclimated by gradually increasing the time of e.v- posure from day to day- Wear loose clothing, as little as is consistent with modesty, and preferably light in color.

Take several short rests By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — A quality that I greatly admire is straightforwardness. I like things laid out in one-two-threc order. Cards oa the table Open and above board. In short, I like the Agriculture Department's proposed new standards for food container inspection. They take a down-to-earth, mince- no-words approach that is all too rare in the federal bureaucracy. Suppose, for example, that you were inspecting some food containers and you noticed that one of them was leaking. In your usual slipshod manner, you probably would mark it down as defective and let it go at that. Well, sir, under these new standards, you wouldn't get by that easily. If defects were found, you would evaluate them under a defect rating system. Then you would classify them as "minor," "major" or "critical." In my opinion they are neoclassical in their logic and simplicity. They go like this: "A small dent in a metal can which doesn't affect its usability is a minor defect; a tear in a fibre carton which does materially affect its usability is a major defect; and a leak in a can or jar is a critical defect." Now that is what I call laying it on the line. Once you have decided whether regards himself alone, who turns the defects are minor, major or everything to his own advantage, critical, the next step is to de- Thou must live for another, if One Minute Pulpit miored, As each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: — I Peter 5:10.

Q— One reader OTites that he is troubled with itching eyebrows for which various lotions have given only temporary relief. Another reader asks what would cause an itching spot on his scalp that is associated with scaling. A—Both these readers appear to have seborrheic dermatitis, a condition associated with excessive dandruff and an overproduction of oil in the skin. Although this disease can rarely be cured, much can now be done to control it. Sulfur ointment, coal tar ointment or soap and preparations containing selenium sulfide, cadmium sulfide, tetrathionate and pentathionate have given excellent results but they should be used only under a doctor's supervision since improper use may aggravate the condition. THE ALMANAC Today is Wednesday, July 10, the 191st day of 1963 with 174 to follow. The moon is approaching its last quarter. The morning stars are Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. The evening star is Mars. On this day in history: In 1890, Wyoming was admitted to the Union as the 44th state. In 1908, William Jennings Bryan was nominated by the Democrats as theu: presidential candidate for the third time. In 1960, Russia shot down a United States plane in the Soviet Arctic. In 1962, the Telstar satellite relayed television pictures from the United States to Europe, and America received clear pictures back from Britain and France. A thought for the day—President Abraham Lincoln said: "Towering genius disdains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto termine whether they are "related defects" or "unrelated defects."
