Page 12 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA JULY 23, 1963 County moves to control billboards Some progress towaj-d controlling billboards along freeways in the San Bernardino valley was made yesterday when the supemsors voted an amendment to the billboard ordinance. The measure limits the number of billboards and they may be placed only in commercial or industrial zones. This will help keep scenic ai'eas from being blighted by billboards. In the desert area Supenusor Ross Dana says his people want more billboards, not less. An amendment will be considered later after a public hearing on his proposal. Dana apparently believes billboards ai-e necessary to relieve the montony of desert di-iving. Also he says business people in the desert need them. The amendment adopted yesterday applies in county areas. The City of Redlands has an ordinance on the books conti-olling billboai'ds in the city. No new ones \\-ill be pei-mitted although exisiting ones will be allowed to remain in use. Proper conti-ol of outdoor advertising is a desirable objective, but one always pitting commercial interests against those who see the value of highway beautification. The result is usually compromise. Neither gets all that is wanted. The motorist will get only as beautiful highways as he demands. Showplace of inhumanity Willy Brandt, governing mayor of Berlin, pictures his city as a "showplace of inhumanity." Brandt fled his homeland in 1933 to work as a newspaperman in Norway. Later he sei*ved as a major in the Norwegian Army. In 1947 he returned to Gemany, became chief editor of the Berliner Standblatt, a member of the Bundestag and subsequently its presiding officer. He was elected mayor in 1937. Appeai'ing before the Rotary International convention in St. Louis, Mo., Mayor Brandt had this to say: Berlin is a showplace of inhumanity. A bloodstained wall of stone and barbed wii'e has to2Ti many families apai't. But West Berlin is no longer a desert of njbble. It has become an important city, bustling with economic and cultural activity. And Berlin is a city full of confidence. We have been exposed to what might be called an intense assault over the years and to frequent individual forays from our adversaries. But we have learned, and I think we have proved that with courage and confidence in our basic values, together with faith in our friends, seemingly impossible odds can be overcome. On the dividing line between East and West one has no time to be timid. Sometimes, it is true, one becomes weary and doubts are expressed about the future. Voices are raised, clamoring, "How long, oh Lord, how long?" But we have made our choice, ue have learned our lesson, we accept our responsibility with pride, and we will endure the consequences as long as necessary. My experience is this: when people of goodwill work together for a cause they hold dear, and if they have the strength to live with uncertainty, there is hardly any obstacle that cannot be overcome. The spii'it of freedom combined with the urge for normal human relations and contacts is a political reality that statesmen cannot ignore. No political program, no policy blueprint, can be successful in the long nm if this reality is not taken into consideration. This, in a very true sense, is the djTiamic power of the human factor. And policy makers who forget that the ultimate justification of policy must be in its response to the needs of human beings are living in an unreal world. There are those who tell us — and who have been telling us for years — that the division of Germany and Berlin is a reality. With this there can be no dispute. Division is a reality in many parts of the world, including Europe, as well as in my country and my city. The so-called realists go on to tell us we must live with this situation, that we must accept it as a fact that will not change, and that we must order our lives within a grim and unnatural political framework. It is a fact, of course, that we must live with harsh realities. But it is also a fact that we do not have to be content with them. Rather, we must always search for ways and means to replace them with better realities. The urge for unity with freedom is not a German specialty. It represents a far more universal hunger for the warmth of human contact. It reflects a common aversion for walls that divide men from other men, peoples from peoples. This is the fundamental reality. And to discuss it is as a lost dream or a futile hope is to miscalculate the dynamics of historj', to misjudge this century's imperatives of interdependence, to underestimate the human factor in today's power structure. . .

With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore By FRANK MOORE Santa Fe, New Jlexico — This community also enjoys outdoor music two evenings a week during the summer. If you are a Redlands tourist here you must attend the Santa Fe opera, not only for the music itself, but to make comparisons with our Bowl. -Although Santa Fe was founded in 1610 and is the oldest capital city in the United States, it is young in outdoor music compared to the upstart Redlands, founded as recently as 1888. It was in 1924 that Grace Mullen got up the Community sings which quickly developed into the programs of music and dancing which are now in the 40th season. It was only six years ago that outdoor music started here. While Redhnders could conveniently converge on the Bowl in the very heart of their touTi, no similar facility was available here. A Spanish plaza is a good place for a band concert but will not do for opera, the music Santa Fe enthusiasts had in mind. So (hey went live miles out of town on the main highway to place their amphitheater on a hill top, looking to the mountains that border the Rio Grande valley east and west. There they could provide parking for all of the automobiles of the patrons. .A 1 0 u g h this arrangement means that the parked automobiles of opera-goers do not line the streets of Santa Fe — in the Redlands manner — it also means that people who must walk wherever they go in a town, are denied access. Of those who established the Santa Fe opera; Ross Parmentcr of the New York Times said they were but a handful of people with soaring imagination, with the daring (0 solicit large sums of money, and with the will to work hard lo make their impossible dream come true. They did not. houever. have the courage of Grace Mullen who dared to imagine that music could be for everybody — not just for those who have the price of admission. Even she might have been stymied if she had had to find financing for the construction of the JIunicipal bowl which stands on land given by the Smiley Brothers, with city built seats, and with a Prosellis donated by the Clarence G. Whites. But when you decide that you are going to charge admission, then at once many things become different. While you might see the same opera in Redlands and Santa Fe it is unlikely that on a voluntary basis you would put into one of the red bowls as much as you would pay for tickets here. A few tickets are available at $2.80 but the common range is from $4.50 to S6.80. For the average couple, then, the cost is SU. There is in addition, of course, an opera association whose duty, we assume, is to provide under- wTiling of finances beyond the income from tickets. Programs here are free but a cup of coffee at intermission costs 25 cents. We don 't know about the bar prices, but a bar does serve patrons of the opera, the profits helpmg lo finance the series. (Imagine that arrangement in Redlands.) Because it was built for opera alone, and for an admission paying audience, the Santa Fe amphitheater is quite different from ours. The Santa Fe seating, we guess, would accomodate about one third of the Bowl audience. The benches are also wooden, but far more comfortable. The seats and backs are more realistically angled and positioned to accomodate the human figure. There is a pad on the benches and as you enter they offer you a small woolen blanket. Since all seats are reserved, they are numbered in the usual manner of a theater, and each is separated from next by iron work. The amphitheater is ornamentally fenced on either side and there is nothing like the Prosellis. Rather, the scenery stands at the back and sides of the stage and is about 10 feet high.

The total stage effect at Santa Fe is much closer to that of an indoor theater than the familiar outdoor feeling we always get in Redlands. The Santa Fe opera is sung by artists who are generally of more professional experience than those at home. The orchestra, too, is able to attract for at least one performance such a famed conductor (and composer) as Igor Stravinsky. But we see nothing that suggests any single performance here ever gives so much enjoyment to so many people as some of our ever-popular light operas, say the Mikado. It would be unfair to say that one is better than the other. Redlands and Santa Fe are different. Each, in its own way, can be very satisfying indeed.

Wilson President Kennedy gave himself high marks at last week's ^Vhite House news conference. He said his Treasury deficit in the 1963 fiscal year would be only $6.2 billion instead of the $8.8 billion estimated sL\ months ago. The President and his successors must do better than that, however, if the United States is to escape from the tailspin of deficit spending that threatens the American way of life. A stronger president than the United States has had in the past 30 years must come along soon to reverse the trend of spending. There have been 27 Treasury deficits in the past 34 years. Public and politicians were shocked years ago as the deficits accumulated from year to year. Franklin D. Roosevelt regularly promised to balance the budget but always "next year." He never made it Now a president considers it reason for congratulation when his budget deficit is a mere $6.2 billion. Debt $306 Billion All of these budget deficits are paid off with borrowed money. This public debt in 1930 was $16.1 billion, a holdover from World War I. Interest on the public debt that year was $659 million. The public debt today is S306 billion. The taxpayers have paid S133 billion in interest on the public debt since 1930, the most costly dead horse of all time. The cumulative budget deficit, 1930-64, was 5278.9 billion. That is the margin by which the United States government has been living beyond its income. The spending trend has been steadily up as politicians happily overworked the late Harry L. Hopkins' famous New Dead system of remaining in office. The system, accorduig to Hopkins, was: "Tax and tax. spend and spend, elect and elect." But the politicians lag on taxes, speed on spending. Government expenditures in fiscal I960 were S76.5 billion and revenue was $77.7 billion for a fat surplus. If the Kennedy administration had been willing to hold spending at the 1960 level there would have been no deficit in fiscal 1963 but a surplus, perhaps $10 biilioa instead of a deficit of $6.2. A Deadly Menace The endless Treasury deficits are regarded by old fashioned folk — the political squares — as a deadly menace to the general welfare. There is another deficit, however, equally menacing. That is the U. S. deficit in its balance of international payments. This deficit is accumulating now at a rate of about $3.3 billion annually. The Kennedy administration's alarm is evident in legislation now proposed to check or reverse the trend of that deficit in international transactions. The deficit hit $3.9 billion in 1960, the last Eisenhower year. Kennedy got it under limited control and into a downward trend through 1961-62. But the trend is sharply up again and the administration is worried. The U. S. gold stock is running perilously low. It is down to S15.6 billion now from nearly $24.5 billion in 1949. The United States could not today meet its gold obligations if demand were made. The rich Uncle Sam of the generous Marshall Plan and other foreign aid may be just another poor relation one of these days.

The minister is to be a live man, a real man, a true man, a simple man, great in his love, great in his life, great in bis work, great in his simplicity, great in his gentlenes.s- John Hall. Q—I feel tired and ache all over. My doctor said my blood pressure was very low. Is this serious? A—Low blood pressure is hard to define because any level of pressure that is high enough to keep your blood circulating when you are up and about is not too low. Many of the best athletes have blood pressures far below the average. No one ever died of chronic low blood pressure. (The sudden lowering of blood pressure known as shock is a different matter.) In fact, persons whose blood pressure is below average generally live longer than those who have higher blood pressures. There is, however, a condition known as orthostatic low blood pressure in which a person who gets up too quickly from a prone position blacks out or feels very faint. When this happens one should sit down and lie down then get up slowly. This is frequently seen in persons who have been in bed several days because of an illness. Most persons with low blood pressure require no treatment. But, if your doctor thinks your low blood pressure is causing your symptoms, he may want to give you angiotensin (formerly called angiotonin). Q—Must the heart action have been stopped for an hour before a person can be officially pronounced dead? A—This would depend on the circumstances. If a person had been ill for a long time and death was expected, a doctor would listen with his stethoscope to the patient's chest for signs of heart action and would also determine whether or not the patient were breathing. If there were no signs of breathing or heart action the patient could be pronounced dead at once. On the other hand if a person has apparently drowned or been knocked unconscious by an electric current or a blow on the head and stops breathing, artificial respiration should be continued for at least an hour before the victim is pronounced dead. Q—What is von Recklinghau sen's disease? It is curable? A—Von Recklinghausen's disease is a hereditary condition in which spots of increased skin pigmentation are found, especially on the torso. The chief feature of the disease is the large number of tumors that appear to be in the skin but are really tumors of the nerve endings just beneath the skin. These may occur anywhere but are most abundant on the trunk. They are usually soft, varj* in size, and, with rare exceptions, are painless. Although the condition is hereditarj-, the disease does not usually make its appearance until late in life. The condition is really not a disease as it dops not affect the general health. There is no treatment except for removal of those tumors that become so large that they cause pressure or discomfort. 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 answer letters of general interest in future columns. RUSSIANS IN CHURCH LONDON (UPI) - The Rev.
