-By JIM PHELAN- Peace With San Francisco? Most of today's items seem to have a gurgle in them. To start out, our PHELAN Harbor Department is collecting water. You'd think they would have all they want, with a big ocean right off their port bow, but the Harbor fellows are assembling extras p e c i a l water, from such exotic places as ·Leningrad, Karachi and Haifa. The water is being gathered, in special native containers, for the dedication of the new Harbor Administration Building March 4. As a high light of the d e d i c a t i o n , the waters will be poured into the reflecting pool at the building by girls dressed in the native costumes of the donor nations. So far, 18 foreign countries have either sent their donation or signified their intention of doing so. After the ceremony, the containers will he installed in a showcase as a permanent exhibit. The ceremony stresses the importance of our port as a foreign-trade center, and the mingling of the waters in the pool is a symbolic gesture of international good will. Accordingly, we're happy to learn that the Harbor has solicited a donation from San Francisco, a foreign nation that has been at war with Southern California since beyond the memory of the oldest citizen. We hope they come through (Russia already has agreed to join the ceremony) and that March 4 will 1 mark the beginning of peaceful relations with Baghdad-by-the-Pacific. Lngislirs Meanwhile, local members of Alcoholics Anonymous are busy preparing for the international A. A. convention, scheduled here July 1-3. Between 8,000 and 10,000 reformed drinkers will assemble then for their world-wide 'get- together, which is held every five years. Many convention hosts make certain that there's an ample supply of liquor available when the delegates hit town. The A. A. doesn't have that problem, but it has another one. Right now the local A. A.'ers are busy hustling up 10,000 pounds of coffee. Pink Elephants, Inc. We don't know whether it's coincidence or a deep-dyed plot by the liquor trust. But there's a new craze going around town that we hope burns itself out before the first of July. The new fad, called Pie-Eyed in the Sky, is the old chnin letter in a new garb--namely a belt in the middle. A fellow approaches a friend w i f h a list of five names. According to the rules of the game, you send a fifth of liquor to the name on top of the list. Then you make two new copies of the list, scratching off the top name and adding your own at the bottom, and then get two friends to keep the chain going. When your name reaches the top --if the chain is unbroken--you get 32 fifths of liquor. It's a sort of pyramid plan, with pink elephants. There are dozens of lists going around town, and a lot of people are getting a glazed look in their eyes. If the fad keeps up, the A. A. may have a bigger convention than they planned-and that five tons of coffee won't last the first day. £?

Rumor Ike Plans Winter Home on California Desert By MERRIMAN SMITH PALM SPRINGS (UP1) -As President Eisenhower Sunday neared the end of his long weekend in the Southern j California desert, many of his close friends here were convinced that the Chief Executive ultimately will buy a winter home in this vicinity. The President has been here since Thursday on his third visit to the desert, and he was scheduled to take off by jet transport early today for Denver and Washington where he is due in the late afternoon. The White H o u s e has denied repeatedly the last few days that the President is in the market for desert property. But this has not deterred his friends, who predict confidently that the Eisenhowers will have a place of their own in the desert by the time he leaves office next January. f.i j! * # ONE STORY current Sunday was that a group of his friends plan to give the President a piece of property and build a house to his specifications at nearby La Quinta. iisenhower has been staying .here at the home cf his good Washington and Gettysburg Viend, George E. Allen. La Quinta is a large hotel and country c l u b development about 25 miles from Palm Springs. Many of the President's closest friends either have lomes here or use Palm Springs regularly as a winter 1 ·esort. Many of these friends also share the President's enthusiasm for the Augusta (Ga.) National Golf Club. Mrs. Eisenhower likes the desert, too, but in the past she has been partial to Arizona. She plans to visit the Waine Chance Beauty and Health Farm outside Phoenix, Ariz., next month. Taking advantage of ideal dry, sunny weather, the Pres- dent went golfing at 8:10 a. m. Sunday with a group of lis friends at Eldorado Country Club, several miles from lis La Quinta base of operations. S a t u r d a y night he Balloon Parts From Gondola played bridge until a relatively late hour in the Allen bungalow. * * * * BECAUSE OF the 55-degree early morning weather, Eisenhower wore a tan sweater throughout the golf match. After two-putting on the final hole, he stopped to chat with actor Randolph Scott. When Scott shook hands, the President remarked jokingly, "I didn't recognize you without your gunbclt on." Scott explained he had talked with the President last year to get his endorsement for a golf course at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. Eisenhower deviated slight ly from his daily routine when he toured the new million-dollar course at La Quinta in a golf cart ana fished foi five minutes from one of the trout-stocked lakes on the course. He used cheese for bait, but failed to get a nibble. Boy Clings to Bumper., Falls, Killed BATESVILLE. Ark. Ml -A bus driver drove for a half mile Sunday, unaware that a small boy had clung precariously to the bus bumper front "or five blocks, then had "alien to his death beneath the wheels. Driver Lloyd Pierce col- apsed in tears upon learning [hat his bus, carrying passengers home from church scrv- :ces, had killed four-year v old Terry Pierce. They were not related. POLICE CHIEF Jim Mitch um said the child apparently was in front of the bus when it started, a f t e r having stopped to let Terry and five other children off. Mitchum said Terry apparently clutched at the bumper, trying to avoid being run over. When the bus turned a corner, he lost his grip and was crushed under the wheels. The bus driver continued until stopped by a motorist who had witnessed the tragedy.

DEL MONTE CLING NO. 2'/ 2 CAN ABOARD U.S. CARRIER VALLEY FORGE (ffi -- A.[_UCKY giant balloon, known as Sky-1 Ihocik Charlie, broke loose] Sunday at the moment of launching, leaving its gondola and scientific equipment on deck. While some 800 pounds of nuclear emulsion in the gondola remains available for possibly some later experiment, the scientists still need another balloon. The 500-foot balloon lost was the largest in the world and the last remaining one of its kind. A 500-foot companion balloon, known as S k y h o o k Bravo, was sent aloft Saturday to gather data on cosmic rays. HOPES OF the scientists had run high Sunday for a good launch of (he second giant balloon. The winds hac seemed perfect and the pre- i launch activity went smoothly. | The balloon had been filled with 6,000 pounds of helium so it would rise more quickly. All spectators had been ordered aft on the carrier and everything was ready for the launching. The big b a l l o o n ilself started to rise but as it began to lift the weight of the 11,800-pound gondola the line parted. The weightless balloon shot jupward as cries of disappoint- jmcnt sounded from among lithe spectators. . QUART JAR $10,000 SLICED LUER'S QUALITY . . . AROMA THAT TEASES . . .
