Pag« 10 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA JULY 20, 1963 Goldwater says 'no thanks' to Rockefeller TV debate Sen. Gold\vater replies "no thanks" to an offer for a television debate with Gov. Rockefeller. Goldwater says it would contribute to disunity in the Republican party. Political debates can be of serious damage to a candidate. Richard Nixon found that his famed talents as a Whittier college debater were not sufficient in his historic TV bout with John Kennedy. The fomat of those debates made it difficult for either contestant to fully state his position. What it did do was to create a new image of John Kennedy. That was something Nixon was unable to overcome. In the 1944 primary Gov. Dewey knocked Harold Stassen out of the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination when the two met in a radio debate in Oregon. Whether a Goldwater-Rockefeller debate would split the Republican party or not, Goldwater, now riding the crest of the wave would have nothing to gain from debating Rockefeller whose stock has plummeted. Possibly he remembers Bob Kennedy's comment about a 1964 debate between the president and his challenger. Kennedy said there wouldn't be one. The public would probably welcome a Goldwater- Rockefeller debate. Yet the shortcoming of any such encounter is the lack of time for full discussion. Such a debate would really get somewhere if it were over a two hour period. If it were lively enough the audience would stay wth it. Goldwater's answer appears final, but it is a long time until the convention. The two might yet meet somewhere along the campaign trail. High level poker Every real poker player must be wondering how he would be playing the hands if he were sitting in on the nuclear test ban parley in Moscow. Here is a big-time session where the players are pros and the stakes ai-e really, really big. The United States knows from past perfomances that Khrushchev and his pals play rough and play for keeps. They can also play it smooth and play it gentle. And they have a beautiful change-up that keeps their opponents off balance. It would be a tough assignment to go up against these characters if the contest was only a chess game or a tennis match. Or if the chips were only a dime apiece. But when the fate of the world and the lives of millions of human beings may well be riding on how well we play each hand—can you imagine the stress and strain on eveiy American around the table? Are the Russians for real in their new-found camaraderie and robust geniality? Or is this a mask for a hidden gimmick they may be waiting to unveil at just the right moment? Is this sudden warmth for America and the West a logical aftermath of the big hassle between the Soviet and the Chinese Reds? Or is it just a shrewd psychological maneuver designed to lull the United States into lowering its guard long enough to become a patsy for a good, stiff diplomatic clout? Everybody wants peace, of course. Everybody hopes and prays a way may be found to thaw out the cold war, or at least to keep it from becoming hot. Nobody in his right mind wants to pass up a chance to slow down or halt the nuclear race toward potential mass destruction. But this country has learned the hard way that we just can't trust the Reds to play it by our rules, or trust them, period. They're a different breed of cat, and our only hope of self-presen'-ation is to be constantly alert, constantly suspicious, constantly steadfast in insisting on oiu* rights. Let's hope the Russians are playing this high level poker on a high level. But let's keep an eagle eye on any move to stack the deck. Dream come true With all the problems besetting cities, it must be the sweet dream of mayors to just start building their cities all over again on an empty plot of land. One former mayor is having this delightful experience. Michael V, DiSalle, whose term of office as chief e.\ecutive of Toledo, Ohio, led him into important governmental jobs and then to the governorship of Ohio, is living this dream come true. He is president of a private business organization which s creating a brand new community, planned for 75,000 people, at Reston, Va., outside Washington. The Newsreel Junior Tippy says he would like to go into some line of work where all you had to do was the job, without worrying about projecting an image, too. Walter Tippy is enthusiastic about an autobiography he is reading. "Here's a guy," he says, "whose life has been duller than mine." The best sign that a problem is just about insoluble is when any administration brings in a member of the opposition party to solve it Need a subject for those sleepless hours of worry? Where did all the hula hoops go and what becomes of autographed baseballs? Warning: hot, humid weather turns little, old lady drivers into regular tigers at the wheel Real estate jargon infects family conversations and the son is no longer described as a tall boy but as a high-rise kid. Numbers increasingly replace place names, and the songs of the future will have such titles as, "Giv-e My Regards to 6418," or "Area Code 932 Moon," with lyrics like "It Simply Would Be Heaven To Be In 97 In the Morning." With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore When we were at home battling the bug, our friends deluged us with kindness much of it in the form of literary material. We flipped through the pages at a terrific pace, but never did finish the entire stack. Now that Smiley Library has compiled its best seller list for 1962-63 as judged by demand from Redlands readers we can see how our taste fits in with the local populace. "Travels with Charley" John Steinbeck's tale of trailer life around the country has been at the top of the non-fiction liest seller list for some time". We have liked Steinbeck's works, but this effort doesn't seem up to past standards. He sounds like a tired old man. He observed that most of the people he met were traveling to get away from where they had been. Steinbeck appeared to be traveling for the same reason, and to get material for a book. The library reports that when Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature the popularity of "Travels with Charley" doubled. We greatly doubt that he would have been a Nobel winner if all his books had been "Travels with Charley." "Seven Days in May" is the best cliffhanger of the year. We agree with every single Bed- lander that put it on his best seller list. For those who have not read it, it is a novel about a military conspiracy to take over the government of the United States. Eisenhower warned of the danger of a militarj'-mdustrial complex. "Seven Days in Jlay" goes the route. "Fail-Safe" is another fantastic novel about the Strategic Air Command and a nuclear bomber that is accidentally loosed on Russia. The story was all right for a while, but the author fu.mbled the plot towards the end and lost the effect of a great start. Our Strategic Air Command friends picked a few flaws in the book and denied that what happened in "Fail Safe" is even remotely possible. "Guns of August," another Redlands choice is a fine history of the fateful days of World War 1. Like all histories of war the reader is left wonderuig just how any nation happens to win one. "Final Verdict" Adela Rogers St. John's story of the life of her father. Earl Rogers, Los Angeles attorney, was too drawn out for us. An earlier book on the same subject "Take the Witness" we thought was far superior and not nearly so wordy. Those who hadn't read the earlier book probably enjoyed "Final Verdict." Mrs. St. John stayed at Wissahickon Inn several times while her son was a student at the University of Redlands. Nizer's "My Life In Court" another Redlands favorite is a tremendous book. His account of the pro.\y fight for control of MGM is more exciting than a Rose Bowl football game. Mrs. George Hinckley's "On the Banks of the Zanja" is a perennial favorite at the library. All the more so should it be in this Diamond Jubilee year. Those who are now reading Dr. Lawrence Nelson's "Only One Redlands" will also enjoy Mrs. Hinckley's earlier work. The library lists Hedda Hopper's "The NVhole Truth and Nothing But:" first on the books it mentions. We have not read it, but she is a good writer and personal publicity agent. To the library's pick we would add a personal selection of Admiral Lewis Straus' "Men and Decisions" as the book of the year. CANT FLY KITES WASHINGTON (UPI) - Rep. Frank Thompson, D-N.J., wants to make kite flying and balloon launching legal in the District of Columbia. In introducing the bill Thursday, Thompson noted that President Kennedy was forced to fly kites in Massachusetts because the sport has been illegal in the nation's capital since 1892.

"Maggie" is the Capitol's affectionate nickname for Sen. Warren G. Magnuson (D., Wash.) The load of hay that now burdens his solid, uncomplaining, Scandinavian-American shoulders represents twin responsibilities which are at war with each other. The discharge of one is anything but helpful to the dicharge of the other. On the one hand, as chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, Magnuson's job is to forward the most controversial part of the Kennedy Administration's omnibus civil rights package. This is the proposal to force integration of private business by Federal law under pain of Federal punishment. On the other hand, as chairman of Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, it is Magnuson's urgent help re-elect ail Democraic Senators who muse run agam ne.xt year. The first task is difficult in the extreme. For, notwithstanding the probability that Magnuson will be able to faring the integration bill from his Commerce Committee — though doubtless in a much modified state — its chance of approval by the Senate itself is dim, indeed. A Senate majority, if allowed to proceed without unduly violent intimidation from the Negro leaders and the small band of Democratic and Republican civil rights extremists allied with them, is likely in the end to vindicate such actual Negro rights as the free vote and unrestricted use of publicity supported facilities like schools and transportation. But it is most unlikely in any event to accept the proposition that the refusal of a private business or lodging house to serve all comers, however unethical this refusal may be, is actually to be made a Federal offense. The concern here, of course, is for the maintenance of the centuries-long rights of private property. It is at this point, in any event, that great complications arise under the second of Magnuson's hats, the hat he wears as chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Conmiittee. For the mere existence of the civil rights issue in its inflamed condition — and especially that part of the issue specifically involved in the "public accommodations" section now before Magnuson's Commerce Conunittee — will undoubtedly injure most of the Democratic Senators who must run for re-election next year. This is most poignantly true, as it happens, of precisely the one group of such Senators — seven from the West — who happen to be the most vulnerable of all to Republican challenge in 1964. No competent political observer denies that the West — which was generally hostile to the Kennedy-Johnson ticket in 1960 and which in all the country outside the South has since shown the sharpest rise in conservative sentiment — is the most dangerous Senatorial territory from the Democratic point of view. To pass any sort of substantial civil rights legislation in the Senate will require application of the gag rule to shut off a South- em filibuster. This needs a two- thirds majority. The Westerners will be pressured endlessly to vote for the gag. If they do not so vote, they will be branded, quite un- faurly but also quite inevitably, as "anti-civU rights." If they do so vote, they will break an old tradition among- Western Senators — outside giant California — against supporting the gag at any time. It is a tradition based upon the demonstrated fact that the West itself knows it often needs the right to the filibuster, as the ultimate pro- tecor of all minority interests and of all the ill-populated states. This columnist, who is not innocent of skepticism toward the motives of politicians, has no doubt that Magnuson of Washington is truly of the civil rights package, "public accommodations" and all. Equally, there is no question that Magnuson is no less devoted to his mission of helping return his hard-pressed Western Democratic colleagues. All this explains why it is that when his fellow Senators say that the whole load of hay has fallen on Maggie, they utter but the painful and total truth.

ASSIGNMENT; West Irvine Ranch, Cdifomia's greatest modern development By Neil Morgan THE ALMANAC THE ALMANAC By United Press International Today is Saturday, July 20, the ZOlst day of 1963 with 164 to follow. The moon is new. The morning stars are Jupiter and Saturn. The evening star is Mars. On this day in history: In 1834, federal troops were withdrawn from Chicago as the country's most bitter, labor dispute of that day, the Pullman strike, was broken. In 1917, the Secretary of War, Newton Baker, drew the first draft number for World War I. In 1940, Congress approved a $4 billion appropriations bill making possible a tno-ocean U.S. Navy. In 1945, the U.S. flag was raised over Berlin and the first American troops prepared to participate in the occupation government. TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or appliances will find a ready market through aassified Ads. NEWPORT BEACH,-The Irvine Ranch, which can be reached in less than 40 minutes from Los Angeles Civic Center, has been the largest undeveloped urban tract in the nation. But it won't long remain so. By the end of this year, construction will begin on a new University of California campus, three miles inland from Newport Beach. The building boom during the next two decades will be nearby, along the part of the ranch that borders the Pacific Coast. Irvine Ranch is three times the area of San Francisco and more than six times the size of Manhattan. It makes up one-fifth of booming Orange County. It re- mamed almost intact from the days of Spanish settlement until Joan Irvine Burt, the pretty young heiress of the • ranch company, led a three-year battle with company durectors for a master development plan. It extends 22 miles from the Pacific Ocean to the Riverside County line. The ranch includes eight miles of coves along the coast between the resort towns of Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. ^Vhat makes Irvine Ranch significant in Southern California is that its diversified development is being planned with care in an area fast being blighted by urban sprawl. Irvine may stand as an example for future urban planners trying to untangle the Southern California jungle. The young heiress won a round in her battle with her directors after making public a letter to the company president in 1960 in which she cited the Irvine ranch as "an unparalleled and golden opportunity in the creation of new and lasting standards of community development." The man who then was president stepped aside, and Charles S. Thomas, former Secretary of the Navy, was called in to implement a master plan. It is being developed under the One HiRute Pvlpit Did not my hand make all these tUngs? — Acts 7:50. Open, ye heavens, your living doors; let in The great Creator from His work retum'd Magnificent, His six days' work, a world! —John Milton. supervision of architect William Pereira; it is to be executed in three phases requiring 10 years each. The results seems likely to be a hopeful example of community planning. Included is a 1,000-acre university campus at which classes are scheduled to begin in 1965. By 1990, the Irvine campus will accommodate 27,500 students. Then there are homes, hotels, golf courses, beach facilities, business and mdustrial sites — all the trappings of modem megalopolis — but, hopefully, in smoother juxtaposition to each other and with an eye toward beauty and practicality. Thomas regards the Irvine Co. as in a position similar to that of cities and counties around the ranch. "We are concerned with the over-all development, as they are, of a vast area — not just piecemeal, fragmentary development." There are three planning zones: A coastal sector of about 44,000 acres, from the ocean north to the proposed route of the San Diego Freeway. A 20,000-acre agricultural sector runnuig to the foothills of the Lomas de Santiago mountain range. And the northernmost area of the ranch, which rises to the mountains of the Cleveland National Forest. Today industrial parks within the first sector are beginning to blossom with well-designed buildings. Largest of them is the Ford Aeronutronic Research and Science Center, which occupies 20O acres. Its 2,700 employes are involved m electronic and space engineering and manufacturing. There are other firms already active here, like Collins Radio's information Science Center, and Astropower, a subsidiary of Douglas Aircraft Co. Luxurious homes are being developed along the scenic shoreline in many residential communities with names like Cameo Shores, Irvine Cove and Dover Shores. Right or wrong, this is the destiny of the land which was bought in 1864 by James Irvine, Irish- bom migrant who came to the Northern California goldfields in 1849. In 1868, the ranches on which Irvine and three partners grazed sheep and cattle were assessed at $28,000. Today, a corps of assessors keeps busy updating their estimates of the worth of the Irvine property.
