CALIFORNIA JULY 11, 1963 Battle for the young voters During the heyday of the New Deal and its early aftermath, it was a commonplace to say that young Americans were voting heavily Democratic. Lately the political interests of the yoimg folk have not seemed so clearly one-sided. The Young Republicans have just finished another of their fire and brimstone conventions in San Francisco. You would hardly know the Young Democrats are alive. In a wide arc across the Old South, into the Southwest and well sprinkled in the Mountain states are new Republican leaders in their tender 30s. They are giving the GOP organization a new face, and some obser\'ers dare to suggest they may have already altered the party's power structure. By contrast key portions of the rival Democratic organization look old and tired — and here and there corrupt. Sea Barry Goldwater reminded the Young Republicans of this in his speech stressing liberal (Democratic) dependence on "corrupt big city machines" for voting power. Yet, despite all the sights and sounds of youthful upsurge on the Republican side, it is not clear that young voters are turning consistently to Republican choices at the polls. Dwight Eisenhower won many of them, but President Kennedy scdved well among them, too. The 1962 election results, strongly weighted \vith Democratic victoi'ies in Congress and at the governorship level, did not suggest the Democrats are suffering material defections. But every election is a new ball game, and the Republicans will have a golden chance in 1964 to cut into the ranks of youth—and build overall vote totals to winning levels. The Census Bureau says, in response to inquiry, that by November, 1964, there be 10,300,000 persons who will have come to voting age since the 1960 election. Not all these will register, or otherwise be eligible to vote. But perhaps 6 million new voters will be on the rolls, two thirds of them in cities and .suburbs. These youngsterg inevitably will represent one of the important battlegrounds of the 1964 campaign. Who wiU get them? Is consei-vatism the theme they want to hear? On the assumption it is, Republicans bang hard on that drum. Or is there still a quiet, somewhat unassertive but pronounced majority for the Democratic party's philosophy and progi-ams? The ansNver should be one of the most fascinating political results of 1964. No Solomon in sight Tlie i-ailroad strike has been postponed for another attempt to settle this dispute. But is any real settlement possible, no matter what bai'gaining procedure is adopted? Technological improvement makes it feasible to operate a railroad with far fewer hands than were required yestei-day. The management insists that it should not be forced to continue hiring men that it does not need. Railroad employes, however, are human. Many of them sincerely believe the jobs they hold are necessary, no matter what management or third parties may say. Moreover, they need to work to live and can't s\A'itch to oilier employment — for lack of such opportunity, skill, age, or other reason. Having tlie sti'ike weapon, the unions will use it as a last resort, much as the membership may wish there were another coui-se. If there is some way to solve this appai"ently unsolvable conflict, the Solomon who holds the answers has yet to step forth and reveal himself. Man—Apt imitator It is said that science and technology have advanced mankind many centuries in this past century. Yet, have they? Jet propulsion is new, but the squid has been jetting around the ocean by sucking in and e.xpelling water for much longer than man has been doing it Radar, of a type, has ijeen used by bats for centuries. The hummingbird is a natural helicopter, going up or down, backward or forward, or just hovering over a blossom. The scoipion's tail is a natural hypodermic needle. The caribou and snowshoe rabbit have built-in snowshoes. And abalones use suction cups to attach themselves to rocks. Science is man learning how to imitate the things he has seen around liim since he came upon the earth. The Newsreel With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Meere The gopher snakes are on good terms with the people up in Yucaipa. What they must do now is to make friends with the birds. This we learn from Hank Blaut who reports his e.\perience the other day on the Facts route he carries. "f was driving along Freemont street, south o£ H, when I saw a gopher snake in the road," he says, "I don't like to kill these fellows so I swerved and missed him. "Another car was coming along and I said to my-self, 'He'll get it noiv'." But he didn't ... He co-operated with the mortorist, shall I say, and sur\'ived. "When I came back that way the sparrows we're having a gopher snake rally . . . dozens of sparrows, they would fly down and peck at his tail, or his middle, all the time making a great fuss. "I suppose that there was a nest in the hedge he was heading for and the sparrow Air Force was bent on stopping him." Guy Wilson, 20G Catherine drive, writes: "In the interests of historical truth and the reputation of a lady I feel that I should set the record straight. "In a recent column you stated that there was a celebration in Sacramento in honor of the arrival there of the first ocean going steamer, which had recently arrived there. "In 1921 I crossed the Pacific on the Agnes Dollar, a twin-screw "single ended", steam schooner of 1200 tons. With her toy engines w-orking perfectly and no head winds or seas she could make 8 knots. She had busily plied her trade up and dottn the Coast for years and her sole claim to fame was the fact that she was the only ocean going vessel that had ever gone to Sacramento. While I personally did not make the trip to Sacramento on the Agnes Dollar nor did I know the date, her skipper assured me that this was a fact and J have no reason to doubt his word. "I never met the real Agnes Dollar and therefore do not know what her reactions were when and it she ever saw her namesake but I cannot believe they were pleasant, but the fact remains that she did sail up and down the Coast, go to Sacramento and finally across the Pacific where she may still be sailing out of Hong Kong to tlie South Seas for all I know." Ernie Larsen, the big citrus grower and shipper says: "Many people are astounded when you tell them that there are more Florida oranges consumed in California than those grown in their own stale. "This situation prevails because a greater amount of orange juice is consumed from the can than from fresh fruit. "When it is known that over 90 per cent of the concentrate is produced in Florida, of necessity a larger quantity of that sold in California is processed in Florida." Ernie spoke to his fellow Ki- wanians Tuesday noon and in honor of the occasion a rare beverage was served. •riiis was so delicious that the elixir was the subject of general table conversation throughout the room. What was it? Freshly squeezed, natural Valencia orange juice. This Gift of the Gods is still found in Redlands homes where people are lucky enough to have orange trees in their yards, or they own a grove elsewhere in the area. But even the homesite grower is likely to be thirsting for fresh juice this summer. The January freeze ruined most of the fruit in unhealed oranges, although you can find quite a few sound Vaienc- ias inside the foliage where there was some protection. A man who lives In this area, but has spent his life in the military service, told us the other day he had had nothuig, but frustration in tryuig to buy fruit at the packing houses.

Nelson Rockefeller of New York is making urgent and dangerous use of the civil rights issue as he attempts to arrest the great decline in his fortunes as a 1964 Republican. Presidential possibility that followed his divorce and remarriage. He has seized the leadership of an extremist Eastern and urban G.O.P. faction which would actually like to go even farther than the Kennedy Administration itself in its appeal to Negro and other minority group votmg blocs. This he has done by his announcement that at the National Governors Conference in Miami Beach, July 22-24, he will demand the adoption of a very "strong" civil rights line. It is most doubtful that the governors generally will follow him in this thrust. But it is unquestionably true that it will tend to bring him back to massive public notice, just as it will operate as a challenge to President Kennedy's thus far unchallenged leadership among minority groups in the civil rights field. The current racial tensions, in short, have given the governor an opportunity which so rarely comes to politicians as to be regarded as heaven-sent. He is able to join his undoubtedly honest convictions for far-out civil rights legislation with his clear necessity to find some way to try to restore his position in the Presidential race. That position has been steadily v;eakening, not simply relative to Senator Goldwater of Arizona but also relative to such other G.O.P. Presidential possibilities as Governors William Scranton of Pennsylvania and George Romney of Jlichigan. If there are significant rewards for Rockefeller in this enterprise, however, there are even more significant dangers. He has taken a perilous course in breaking, publicly and imperiously, with the entire top leadership of his party in the United States Senate. That leadership is ready to go along with much of the President's "strong" civil rights package, but it is resisting forced integration of privately owned business. And that leadership will — to put it at its softest — not appreciate it that a Republican governor with no responsibility for national legislation, no experience in it, and no real knowledge of the depth of the problem nationally has chosen to instruct it in its legislative duty. This circumstance, while not necessarily be fatal to Governor Rockefeller at next year's G.O.P. convention, will certamly be far from helpful to him there among the party regulars likely to control the convention in the end. The regular Republicans of Congress — notably Senate chief Everett Dirksen of Illinois — have already been under savage pressure from Democratic ultra-liberals, plus a handful of Republican ultra-liberals, to abandon their own convictions and automatically vote for every paragraph and line in the Kennedy program. Rockefeller now joins this pressure group. In doing so he not only complicates the work of the Republican leaders and a majority of the Republican rank-and- file in a Senate chamber not really known to him. He also, in effect, supports the clamor of the ultra- liberals that anybody not prepared instantly to sign up for all the Kennedy package is ready to make the G.O.P. "a white man's party." This same "anybody" is. in fact, a majority of the Republicans in both houses of Congress. And this excessively violent, and totally unfair, accusation of G.O.P. "racism" could fatally boomerang against the very party Rockefeller seeks to lead. Unwittingly, he is at the end of it, playing the game mainly of the ultra-liberal Democrats.

Brandstadt In the Civil Rights field, an appeal is now being made to reason — always the court of last resort The real thrill of watching a panel discussion on the teevee is when the guy who has been smoking a pipe and looking wise says something stupid. Henry Cabot Lodge gets the appomtment as Ambassador to South Vietnam. That's the kind of favor a fellow kind of hopes to avoid. Where wiR this clamor for truth-in-packaging end? Accurate descriptions of the contents on the dust jackets of books? Obviously the average man can't begin to keep up with all the new scientific publications, but it's heartening to know that mankind knows a lot of stuff that it doesn't even know it knows. Our feeling about tomatoes is that if it's a bad year we can't grow them and if it's a good year the neighbors will have enough for everybody. To those great partnerships, such as bacon and eggs, Scotch and soda, Damon and Pythias, has now been added sex-and-security. ERRY'S WORLO LIGHTER SIDE Folksinger transition "Fve tbreatened 'compulsory arhiiTatio*^ ^ni stilt it won't work!" By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) - I can remember when a folk singer was a guy who wore dir^ undershirts. He played the guitar "by ear," which probably sounded better than if he had used bis hands. He coxild sing all 102 verses of "Lonesome Freight Train" and insisted on doing so. In some states, this was recognized as grounds for divorce. Almost every community had a folk singer, along with a town drunk and a village idiot. In many communities, all three of them were the same fellow. Folk singers performed mainly in 'talent shows staged in the hi^ school gymnasium to raise money for the volunteer fire department. They were not paid for these appearances, but as a reward for their services they were allowed to start two fires. All of this, as anyone who has looked out the window lately is aware, has drastically changed. Folk singers now travel in groups. partly for harmony and partly for safety. Clean-cut young men in Ivy League clothes, who studied business administration in college, are making fortunes by musically recounting the misfortunes of immigrant coal miners. Their link with the working class is authentic, however. They have calluses on their string- plucking fingers and they wear union-made neckties. Which are real sincere. As much as any group, and more than most, the Kingston Trio is responsible for the folk music transformation. Having l>een together for five years now, the Kingstons are regarded as the elder statesmen of the new breed. This makes them a prime target of the traditionalists, as I found out in the course of a talk with the Kingstons, wiio are appearing here this week. 'Everybody is a self-appointed folk music e.xpert nowadays," said g u it a r i s t Nick Reynolds. Right now it's very 'in' to put How does the body adjust itself to hot weather? When I was a boy people thought that the blood got thicker in winter and thinner in summer. But there is very little evidence to support such a belief. A hormone called aldosterone secreted by the adrenal glands is now known to play an important role in our adjustment to a warmer environment, because it regulates salt and water balances in the body. If a man is transferred suddenly from a cool climate to a hot climate, he is unable to accomplish as much physical work as formerly. But within 10 to 20 days his work capacity returns to its former level. This process of acclimatization requires a change in the function of the heart, blood vessels, and sweat glands. The output of the heart is increased even when the body is resting. Furthermore the volume of blood shunted to the skin is increased. This allows more of the body heat to be dissipated through radiation and sweating. Normally perspiration carries a great deal of salt out of the body. Until acclimatization takes place it is often necessary to add a large amount of salt to the diet. After acclimatization, even though more water is lost through sweating than formerly, the amount of salt lost drops back to the normal level — or less than 5 per cent of that lost at the initial exposure to heat. All these mechanisms are very important to our survival and are controlled by the releases of more aldosterone through the adrenals in hot weather. In some persons with diseases that affect the adrenals these glands are stimulated to produce more aldosterone than is needed. This condition is called hyperald- osteronism and is manifested by weakness, high blood pressure, increased output of urine and an abnormal thirst. The most usual cause is a nonmalignant adrenal tumor. If this disease is not recognized and treated uremia is likely to develop. The treatment is removal us down as prostitutes of folk music." "If we so much as add an E-minor to 'Dear Betsy,' they picket our next concert," said guitarist Bob Shane. "With some of them folk music is almost like a reh'gion," said guitarist John Stewart. "If they served communion at concerts, half of the audience would be up at the rail." The mention of religion started a discussion of the rising popularity of gospel singers on the m'ght club circuit. "A bartender told me that peo- Vle drijk more during gospel songs than at any other time," said Frank Werber, the trio manager. "Almost any day now I expect to see some cabaret change its name to tte Tirst Baptist Saloon'.'-' of the diseased adrenals. Because the adrenal secretions are essen- ial to life they must be given by injection to anyone who has had these glands removed. Q—What is uric acid disease and what is the cure for it? A—Uric acid disease is not a common term but it undoubtedly refers to gout which is a disorder of metabolism. In this disease uric acid crystals form in the skin (especially of the ear) and in the joints (especially of the great toe). Many drugs have been used in the treatment of this disease, but in recent years probenecid has been found to be the best. Q—I have a fatty tumor. It is painless. What is the cause of this and should it be removed? A—Fatty tumors or lipomas are very common. As long as your tumor is painless and not so large as to be unsightly or get in your way it should be left alone. If it ever becomes necessary to remove it you should know that this is a relatively simple operation. THE ALMANAC ; Today is Thursday, July 11, tha 192nd day of 1963 with 173 to follow. The moon is approachmg its last quarter. The mommg stars are Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. The evening star is Mars. On this day in history: In 1804, Vice President Aaron Burr challenged Alexander Hamilton to a duel. In 1884, the Democratic convention in Chicago nominated Gov. Grover Cleveland for the presidency. In 1936, German Nazi dictator Adolph Hitler signed a treaty with Austria and promised to recognize the Austrian frontier. In 1952, Gen, Dwight D. Eisenhower won the Republican nomination for President. A thought for the day—Henry David Thoreau, the naturalist, said: "The perception of beauty is a moral test."
