j| 10 Investigating Units Probing State Hospital toitk MALCOLM EPLCY GPR1NG IS busting out 13 satisfactorily. Herds of rabbin are cavorting happily in the new green grass at the airport, occasionally taking time off from eating to race a jet. There are daffodils in my back yard. Fellows who blossomed out in light seasonal suits Monday shivered in spring zephyrs that bad chin and vigan. And the gals of the Chamber of Commerce launched a cleanup and beautification campaign just as the wind Uttered the area with rubbish. It's a fine season, and op to tradition. A S FOR CLEANUP, with " great satisfaction note is taken of aa improvement that was urged here a while back and is now underway. They've sandblasted and are now painting the old Pig n' Whistle BIdg. on Ocean Blvd. near the Breakers HoteL · Loose plaster, ancient political signs and peeling paint will no longer make this structure one of the area's most prominent eye-. sores. Give credit to the building's owner. Gene Shidler; Fred Miller, owner of the Breakers, and Downtown Long Beach A s s o c i a t e s . They're jointly footing the bill. Shidler has leased the building to people who pay and don't lise it, but would lease it to somebody else if it weren't under threat of possible condemnation for an arena entry street. So it win probably remain empty but won't look so bad. WHAT HAS happened here is an example of what might be done to other bad spots when attention is concentrated opon them. When such places are in private hands, problems are presented. But the Pig n' Whistle case shows the potentialities of private cooperation. A bow to Bra. TRY to pay a bin. with a blank check? I did it, inadvertently of course, the other day in remitting my fee for a Pensacola party reunion at Los Aiamitos Naval Air Station. Back came a note from Cmdr. R. G. Bresso, thanking me and appending these column-worthy remarks: "We certainly appreciate trust and confidence and would be very happy to fill in the blanks but before we do so, your signature will be required. I am returning the check and if you will kindly affix your signature, ! win do the rest-.. "You have given us a tremendous idea. For our next party we win request an participants to send us blank checks (over their signature, of course) and by so doing, it will be entirely possible to rent the Taj Mahal for a real blowout. "Yours for bigger and better reunions." I signed the check and returned it to Bresso. But I took pains to fin in an blank spots. If I had left that to him, I'm afraid the check would bounce with an NSF stamp on it. rjRIFTWCOD--Reader suggests that women who go out at night carry a police whistle with them. If they're approached by a suspicious character, they can blow the whistle. The sug- gester guarantees it win send the fellow hiking if he has evil intentions. . . And that reminds of the day when women used hatpins to stick in the hides of mashers and would-be molesters... Things must be looking up for the ragged bike rider whose occasional appearance around town has been mentioned here. Fellow says he saw the bike man getting a new set of tires for his ancient wheel the other day. Last time I saw him, he was osing ropes for tires... And a bow in the direction of -John McNaughton, a young fellow living at 5224 Broadway. Saving his money from buying, fixing and selling old cars, he completely financed a Hawaii trip for his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. F.
