Page 12 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA JULY 22, 1963 Freeway access routes to be improved by city Major street project for the new fiscal year is the widening and improving of Tennessee street, Redlands public works department announces. This is another in the developments of Redlands changing street pattern to give access to the freeway. Tennessee has been envisioned as a major arterial for the western part of town and for the heights area by connection with San Mateo street Tennessee, formerly a country lane in the citrus belt, is rapidly becoming a street of major importance because of the apartment developments on it and intersecting streets. It provides on and off access to the freeway near Empire Bowl. Another project to give improved connection with the freeway is the realignment and widening of Oak street now nearing completion. The sign on the freeway off ramp is Ford street, but the ramp presently leads off to Oak street Long range planning is for extending Ford street from its present terminus at Sunset to the freeway off ramp. Country club area residents would benefit from a connection at the Wabash off ramp. This is on the drawing boards and the city anticipates the work can be accomplished when a proposed subdivision is opened west of the freeway. One of the first freeway access routes to be opened was the Eureka street north, south improvement which will be carried to completion with the wden- ing of the street this year from the post office corner to Olive avenue. In the year since the freeway was opened for use, new ti-affic patterns have emerged. So far they have been beneficial to the city and to the driving public. When all access' streets are improved as planned, Redlands will have first rate on and off facilities. FBI, crime and the courts We have grown so accustomed to annual Increases in crime rates that it comes as a mild surprise to learn from the FBI that in 1962 murders showed a 2 per cent decline in number from the previous year. There seems to be no profound explanation, other than the fact that police work in this field is extraordinarily good. The FBI, in its annual report, says that over the nation the police cleared up 92 per cent of willful killings in 1962. These include both murder and so-called non-negligent manslaughter. Unhappily, that does not indicate a 93 per cent rate of comacton. Of those cases disposed of by the courts last year, about half resulted in dismissal, acquittal or reduction of the charge. Often it is complained that the courts themselves, through the action of either judges or jury, are guilty of incredible softness toward the prepet- rators of crime — serious and minor. The FBI makes no such complaint, whatever it may feel on this score. As a matter of fact intelligent studies of court performance are sadly lacking. Judge and jury act from a wide variety of motives, only one of which may be an inclination to "take it easy" on the defendant The FBI does note that other factors, too, help explain why a big disparity may exist bet^veen the number of arrests and the number of convictions. Sometimes the police discover they were wTong, and there is no formal charge. When young persons are involved, special local or state laws may dictate leniency. Sometimes, despite police "clearance" of a case, the evidence proves insufficient for an indictment And, though this could hardly apply in a murder case, the victim of a crime often refuses to co-operate in prosecution of the alleged offender. So it is not a simple matter of the police doing a great job in some fields and the courts not doing so. Nevertheless, it is mot interesting to note that only half of the "willful killing" cases which reach the courts result in conviction on the original charges of murder or non-negligent manslaughter. The FBI points out that not only in the matter of killing but in other crimes against the person such as rape and aggravated assault, dismissal, acquittal or charge reduction is more common than for crimes against property. This seems to indicate a considerable reluctance on the part of the courts to act harshly or too swiftly in areas ivhere the penalties may be severe — even unto capital punishment A tendency exists in some quarters to depict the courts as agencies of brutal retribution — eager to speed defendants toward death or a life term. The figures do not support them. Obviously much murder and mayhem is never penalized at all. The Newsreel We are informed that the way-out beatnik is on the way out, but are heaving no sighs of relief until we see what replaces him. Walter Tippy says his brother-in-law is worried about compulsory retirement Once it becomes universal, he's afraid the next step will be compulsory work. Sprays and squirt guns are all very well, but the moment of truth is when one man and one mosquito are locked in person-to-person combat in the hotel room late at night It's an annual ceremony, and there is no particular significance in the fact that almost the minute prominent visitors from abroad left England the Queen counted her swans to see if any were missing. An expert on senior citizenship advises that it is not necessary to have money when you retire, as long as you have an interesting hobby, such as starving. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bid Moore By Frank E. Meer* The Santa Fe Chief arrives at Albuquerque at 5:30 a.m. and life was just beginning to stir for the daywhen we visited the Old Town Piaza. Mass was over and the Spanish- American people who live and work in Old Town were filing out of church. Several of them walked around the south side of the square where we met them, one fay one, as we strolled along. First was an aged woman. She was dressed all in black and had a black lace shawl over her hair. "Good morning," she said, with a friendly snaile as if we were her neighbors — not tourists. Then a brick layer, heading for his parked pick-up approached. "Good morning" he said to us . . . total strangers. An old, short weathered man was next. He tipped his hat to Mrs. Moore and passed along his way. What deeply ingrained courtesy those Old Town people have. Any less hospitable people would become silent and resen'ed under the onslaught of tourists which swamps their neighlwrhood each summer day, as we could easily see from the vanguard of people in shorts, carrying cameras, and flocking in family groups. A crew of men from the Albuquerque City Park department was at work in the shade of the leafy trees. Around the band stand, which is in the center of the plaza, they were building a circular planter of reddish-orange bricks. They were not to labor long. Two plaza merchants, their dander up, demanded that the work stop. "There's nothing even remotely historic about a brick planter," Mrs. R. P. Hooton said. She is the wife of an architect who is chairman of the advisory committee for historic zoning. She got through to the Parks Director and he stopped the job. Old Town must be kept in the historic Spanish style in appearance to match old fashioned courtesy of its people. At the University of New Mexico the architects strive to adapt the Pueblo style to whatever building is needed — gymnasium, administration, class rooms, or laboratories. It would not be surprising to a visitor if the people coming out of the doors in streams at class-changing time proved to be brightly dressed Indians rather than normally dressed American (and Spanish American) students. In the newest architectural show piece, the School of Education, the largest lecture, hall turns out to be an adaption of the kiva, and is so called. The professor is in a pit in this ch-cular hall and the seats rise up almost all around him. It is similar to center staging in theatricals. While the main building retains the Pueblo feeling outside, the inside is as modern as the Aerospace building adjacent to Norton AFB. There are masses of glass, luminous sphere lights hanging on long rods, air conditioning as cool as the Sierra and acoustical tile where needed. Here, in New Mexico, the old and the new meet with decent respect, in architecture as in human affairs. But the visible harmony can be misleading. Politics are churning. Here, as in many states of the Union, the U.S. Supreme Court decision compelling the reapportionment of legislatures, has stirred up the city people against the country people. Albuquerque wants more seats in the lower house and is meeting the standard resistance to change that is found in every state. The legal ground for opposing Albuquerque's demand was stated the other day by the State Attorney General. The population of Bernalillo County (in which the city is located) is so unstable that an accurate count of its permanent residents is impossible, he argues. Population increase in Bernalillo "has been caused predominately by the growth of federal, military and scientific installations," he said. "The duration and continued existence (of this growth) are en- Kennedy walking on a mine-field By William S. White PLUMBERS CONJVENTIOM Redlands Yesterdays Temperatures—Highest 86, lowest 57.

But it remains a curious and interesting argument to any one frcm the San Bernardino valley of California. Our growth has been much from "federal, military and scientific installations," also, and we may some day hear echoes of the defense raised by the Attorney General of New Mexico.

He is, in consequence, walking across a mine-field at home. Never before has he entered so grave a foreign policy enterprise with so little effective contact with the body which must in the end say yea or nay to any arrangement he might possibly make with the Russians.This is the United States Senate, whose constitutional authority to "advise and consent" to treaties — or to advise and then reject them — is at bottom the greatest power in foreign policy short of that of the Presidency itself. In sending Under Secretary of State Averell Harriman to Moscow to negotiate with Nikita Khrushchev for a nuclear test- ban agreement — and to "discuss" though not actually to negotiate other cold war issues — Jlr. Kennedy took a step he had every constitutional power to take. The fact, however, that he did not really consult the real Senate leaders in both parties, beyond certain routme briefings given to them by secondary Administration figures, lays him open to future peril. There is no question that as President and commander-in-chief he had a "right" to enter this somber and infinitely risky affair more or less in isolation from the rest of the American government, which is Congress. There is the greatest question, nevertheless, that he was wise to go it so nearly alone. Had he consulted with and obtained the informal consent of the Senate's centers of power he would be armed now, at least to some extent, should things go sour, in the domestic political sense or in the world sense, with his effort to deal in some trust and faith with the Russians. As things actually stand, however, he already has on his hands a skeptical and worried Senate. And he could, before he is through, have on his hands an actively hostile Senate, as Woodrow Wilson had half a lifetime ago when he embarked on his League of Nations project with little advance regard for Senate attitudes. The sense of the Senate is now, and long has been, deeply opposed to any further nuclear concessions to Klurushchev. Three of the most influential Senators in the defense field — Russell of Georgia. Sj-mington of Missouri and Jackson of Washington — long ago put the President on notice of this state of affairs in a still-unpublished letter to him. These and other Senators are disturbed about the Moscow meeting and its possible implications. They are not ready openly to attack the approach. For, like everybody else except possibly the small chrcle immediately around the President, they do not yet know what, if anything, we propose to give up in the end. Already, however, warning signals to the President to go slow are issuuing from a Senate almost wholly preoccupied with the harsh domestic issue put before it by him in his civil rights legislative program. Whatever one may think of the merits of this legislation, the President's decision to throw the issue wide open in the Senate concurrently with his new negotiations with JIoscow is, to put the truth at its softest, profoundly ill-timed for the conduct of a strong and united foreign policy. One of the most significant admonitions to Mr. Kennedy yet uttered has just been given by Senator Jackson of Washington. Without directly mentioning the Moscow talks, Jackson has attacked as dangerously unrealistic nearly every argument that underlay the Administration's conclusion to undertake them in the first place. These "fallicies" — as Jackson roundly terms them — are that since Khrushchev is in a row with the even uglier Chinese Communists this necessarily suggests we should take a more "inoffensive" and "flexible" line toward the Soviet Union. And so on. The Jackson position — and, indeed, the Senate position — is that while the Russians may currently speak of us with less public nastiness than do the Chinese Communists, the aim of both is to bury us, even though the Chinese may plan "a twelve-foot burial" for us and the Russians only "a si.x-foot burial."

(UPD- Authorities today were looking for a stolen jail. The four-by-six-foot lockup, being used to house violators of "Old Home Week" regulations, vanidied during the weekend. THE ALMANAC Today is Monday, July 22, the 203rd day of 1963 with 162 to follow. The moon is approaching its first quarter. The morning stars are Jupiter and Saturn. Th3 evening star is Mars. On this day in history: In 1864, Union troops under the command of Gen. William Sherman won the first battle of Atlanta. In 1933, Wiley Post completed the first solo flight around the world. In 1934, FBI agents shot and killed John DiUinger as he left a Chicago theater. In 1937, President Franklin- Roosevelt's plan to enlarge the Supreme Court was defeated by the Senate. A thought for the day—English author Ford Madox Ford said: "Only two classes of books are of universal appeal: The very best and the very worst." What is that pounding noise in the nursery? Most likely it is your infant going through a period of banging his head against the mattress or the headbord of his crib. Apparently this bothers the mother more than it bothers the baby, because no report of concussion or brain damage from this source has been recorded. There are different theories as to why infants behave this way. They usually start their head- banging in the second half of their first year and may be responsible to a need to express a feeling of rhythm. When they get older they will do this by clapping their hands or tapping their feet on the floor. Nothing to be alarmed al)out. Another possibility is that they are tense or feel frustrated and are trying to unwind. One fact that would seem to support this theory is that head-banging is most often seen in a first infant who has just been presented with a brother or sister, and suddenly gets less of his mother's attention. If this is true, head-banging would belong in the same category as thumb-sucking. A good treatment would be to give an extra helping of tender loving care several times a day until the habit is stopped. It has also been suggested (not seriously) that these children bang their heads because it feels so good when they stop. In any case this is another of those habits for which the child should not be scolded or punished. Do all you can to give your child a feeling of being loved and try to ignore the habit. The child will almost surely stop of his own accord before he is 4 and any effort to restrain him will only make him more tense. Tne only precaution necessary is to make sure that there are no sharp corners in his crib against which he might injure his head. Of course, this should be done even if your baby is not a head-banger. A closely related habit that is preferred by some infants is head- rolling. This habit is much less of a worry to most mothers. The child may roll bio head rhythmically from side to side in his crib for hours and thus wear all the hair off the back of his head. This bald spot is only temporary and as socm as the diild stops his head-rolling the hair comes in normally. Q--My 4-year-old son had a concussion three weeks ago. Now he complains of his head aching. How long will this continue? —Headaches follov/ing such an injury are relatively common in adults but rare m children. Your doctor should make sure that there is no pressure on the brain from a small clot or broken blood vessel. If there is no serious disease present there must be a psycho logic element in the headache. If you are inclined to be oversolicit- ous you may have asked him several times in the first few days after the accident whether his head hurt. Suggestion of this kind can be a powerful factor in producing the type of headache described. Even a 4-year-old is not above making a play for your sympathy and attention in this way. On the other hand if you have been giving him flavored child- sized aspirin tablets he may be complaining of headache just to get some more of that candy. If this is the case you should stop giving him aspirin at once or switch to a quarter of an adult tablet. In any case you should reassure him that the headache will go away and then divert his mind to something of greater interest.
