Red Star (Non-Soviet) Over Humboldt Bay Beautiful, modern and immaculate, the combination cargo-passenger motorship Goranka, registered out of the port of Piran, Yugoslavia, visited Humboldt Bay briefly last week to mark the first time a flag of that nation ever flew over local waters. The streamlined stack and superstructure, the derrick-type kingposts for the cargo booms, add to the big vessel's attractive appearance and top performance. The U. S. flag flies as an international courtesy at the main truck.

First was Eugene Laudell, 1604 S St., seeking a home occupation permit for sales and service of "home fixet centers." "Look," said Laudell, "nobody is going to come to my house. I'm onlv a salesman. I work. All I use mv home for is to live in. I really work out of my car." He was told he couldn't have a business address in a single family zone. "All right, 1 have rented a space. I have a downtown address now. 737 Fifth St. 1 have lo have this kind of a subterfuge just to be able to work." heavy industrial) is the only way out I can see, but that's going to have some problems, too," said Ditlmer. Commissioner Herbert Quaintance said "It is unfortunate the trailer court was allowed there n the first place." The commission authorized Dittmer to draft a resolution giving notice of intent to rezone, for action at its next meeting. like**" asked Tallcy "This is costing me $350 a month and I can't afford it. This wasn't my fault in the first place. It is the city's error." He was told "If anybody was awake, you wouldn't have obtained the permit at all."

If I wanted to cheat, for $2 a month I can rent an address from a hotel downtown. Is that the kind of subterfuge vou want to force me into?" He was told that the downtown address would be a way out of his trouble. "The ordinance does not allow a business license for a home in the single family zone," Laudell was told. However, using the downtown address he will be able to pursue his sales career, the commission advised him. "There is a wrecking yard in back of where I live: another neighbor raises chickens, yet I can't pursue my business as a salesman," he complained. Tallcy Case Second case was that of Donold K.

Review and another pubic hearing by the council is mandatory. Tallcy said he didn't think there ired commissioners were suggest- o his enlarging the trailer court. 5ven so, the commission said, two months would be the "absolute minimum" he could hope for. Certificates ol service for re- ired commissioners were suggest cd by Dittmer, who said be had n mind particularly Dr. H. H. Stuart, who recently resigned af- er 15 years on the board.

Not only Senica, but Dean Ca//s Reef Hand On War Propaganda GENEVA (UPI) -- The United States suggested today that if the Russians are concerned about war or propaganda they should oullaw books by Marx, Lenin and Stalin. American disarmament negotiator Arthur H. Dean, his temper for once stretched tight, made the suggestion in replying to Soviet allegations that the United States "suppresses advocate of peace." Dean also called on Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Valerian Zorin and other Communist delegates to refrain from allegations !hat West Germany's leaders are inciting a war. The angry exchanges in the 17- nation General Disarmament Conference committee of the whole came at the beginning of the last week of President Kennedy's deadline for cancelling American plans to test nuclear weapons late this month. The Soviet Union still has done nothing to end American or Russian testing of nuclear weapons and American officials went into this last week of Kennedy's deadline convinced Moscow will do nothing in the short time left. Dean reminded the Communists the big issue before them was a Soviet proposal to cease wai propaganda and propaganda disturbing relations between nations. He noted a statement by Bulgarian Deputy Foreign Minister Milco Tarabanov accusing Wcst German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer of describing Communist countries as "our mortal cne mies," and a Czech statement ac cusing Adenauer's defense minis ler, Franz-Josef Straus, of recom mending books calling for war. "The cold war lone you are using here," Dean told the Commu nisls, "is now helpful." lie said if the Soviet Union was truly concerned about propaganda for war, he hoped the Moscow government would outlaw books on the theme if the inevitability of war, including those by Marx, Lenin and Stalin. ,j; Britain and Italy came to the support of Dean, with all three advising the Communists to end heir attacks on a government (West Germany) which is not ·epresented here and therefore mable to reply. 2 U. I Advisers To Laos Killed in Crash Of Plane VIENTIANE, Laos (UPI)-- Two U.S. military advisers in Laos were killed Friday when a chartered Air America transport plane crashed about 65 miles northwest of Vientiane, the airlines disclosed Sunday. The Americans were identified as members of the U.S. military advisory group here. Their names were withheld until the families were notified. Thc airlines said the pilot and co-pilot of the Beaver-type transport plane also died ill Ihe crash. But it did not give their names or nationalities. Air America is a private civilian company operating under a contract with the U. S. military mission and frequently drops supplies to Royal Laotian army troops in remote hill areas where transport over roads in impossible. The airlines said however Ihe pliinc was on a routine "familiarization" flight when Ihc. crash (incurred.

Featured speaker for REA's quarterly executive board meet- ng at Brooktrails Resort is Fred Bagshaw. assistant State Director of Public Works. Bagshaw will ·eport on implications of the California Highway Commission's recent route-adoption for the South Marin County end of the Shoreline Highway (State Route 1). The association will host a oint banquet at Brooktrails on Friday night with the Mendocino County Development Board. More han 100 prominent Mendocinans are expected. A brief program will explore REA and local ef- 'orts to import travel dollars, according to REA president Jack Craemcr. The Redwood Empire Associa- ion currently is arranging local 'welcome traveler" clinics, designed lo teach latest techniques )f hospitality lo motel, restaur- nnt and other "public service" personnel before Ihe impact of an estimated 2,000,000 Senltle Fairgoers hits the Redwood Highway vacationland.

But neither is it owned by the government. The paper, one of many, is owned by a "company", comprised of all of the people who work on it, n all departments. So is all other Yugoslav industry, according to he straightforward report given by Senica and interpreted without lesitation by Third Officer Juko Alajbegovic of Ihe motorship Gor- anka. Here is the story told by Senica under direct questioning, and answered through the young officer of the ship which itself, with three sister ships, is owned by the latter's "company". On one point, both men were positive -- almost angrily so. The Yugoslav system is not like the Russian system, and they do not want it to be so. They run .heir companies as they please, succeed or fail as docs any Amcr- can business, and they are not directed by the government what tind of company to form or how o run it after it is formed. They have a profit system, and hey have individual opportunity and reason for individual initia- ivc. (There \vas no evidence of po- itical fear in answering questions nbout their government and their own operations, even when told )y the interviewer that any ques- ion which might embarrass them n their homeland need not be answered at. all.) In Thc Middle First of all, Senica said through lis fluent interpreter, the Yugoslav people and government are 'against the blocs". They want no part of either the Eastern bloc controlled by Ihc Soviet Union, nor of the Western bloc led by he United States. They are altogether neutral, just as Switzerland and Sweden arc neulral, Senica said. He pointedly named those two notions as examples of the political position of Yougoslavia's six republics in relation to the East and the Wcst and their troubles. A Communist .nation? No. said Scnicn -- no! A Socialist nation, whose six republics are lo her what Ihe 50 slates are lo Ihc United Slates. There was a slight degree of heal, a slighl flush of Irrilu'.iou visible in tilt 'aces' of bolh men at the infer- to each individual company it- ence that their land might be classed with the Soviet Union itself. Freedom of Religion Yugoslavia has full freedom of religion, with two main religions )Ut with many church edifices . ."the freedom, too, like your own country, to believe or not o believe." In the south it is largely Greek Orthodox, in the north, Roman ; _^^^^_fe """""1 ! ^dfl^^^^fe^.

There are representations of oilier religions, including Moslem and Protestant. None, Senica stated positively, meet with any interference from the Yugoslav government, nor do those who attend them, nor their priests and pastors. Would I -- or any other American citizen -- be able to visit Yugoslavia as a tourist, look free y, and move about freely? Such travel to and inside that nation requires only the same passport visa which is required to visit Great Britan, Italy, Peru, France or any other free nation, Senica said. Merely apply at the Yugoslav consulate in San Francisco, or at the Embassy in New York City. You're in. You are, in fact, invited. More tourists visit Yugoslavia on a year-around basis than visit Italy. Senica claimed. "We have a beautiful land -the seacoasts of the Adriatic, many beautiful mainland and island resorts, and only four hours from the sea, some of the best ski slopes in all Europe"! Thc Companies Senica acknowledged that for a erson living his life under the American system, the companies which form Yugoslavia's industry, business, transportation and other phases of what appcars to be a normal life for their own people could be difficult to understand, lint, aside from the (act that all of the employes of each company are owners of that particular business, there appears to be no vast difference. One point he made clear -neither all of Ihe people of the country, nor the government, o«i or control Ihc business of llu companicsionly those who belonj, self. Familiar Note The company, when the profits are reckoned, pays income tax to the government. (Here Senica grinned. . ."I think you know.") This money goes to build the roads, the roads, the schools, the roads, the schools, the hospitals, sustain the military, and other unctions vital to all nations regardless of political status. Yugoslavia has free schools. [rom elementary through the university, except for living expenses and books. The basie education period is 12 years. They can go on. It does have socialized medicine. The hospitals and all medical care are free to any citizen, supported by the taxes on the companies. Senica said the care is good. After the taxes, certain amounts are set aside by the company itself -- in the case of the shipping companies, to build more ships. to train new officers, to maintain the existing ships. Profit Divided After that, the profit is divided among the owners of the company on a share-and-share-alike basis, even though salaries and wages may vary greatly during the earning of the profits. A ship's captain, a tram's engineer and conductor, an airliner's chief pilot, are paid proportionately more during the year than those whOse duties and responsibilities are not so great. But Third Officer Alajbegovic, the interpreter, can be a captain himself someday. He is working toward that end now. At the present time he is learning by mail -- a correspondence course, if you please, plus the practical experience of the ship and the sea life itself. But when (lie time comes, he must spend a full year at "the academy", the school itself. During that year his salary will be paid by his company the same as if he were serving aboard the vessel itself. Retire At 55 Alajbegovic, like all members of all companies, can retire for life at his latest pay rate at the age of 55 -- providing that during those years he has worked for 35 years. This means that his ordinary productive life begins not later than 20. but if it does, he can retire as many years aflcr Ihe age 55 as he begins work after the 20 mark. Time spent improving one's self in the acadcm' % s counts. Claim (Democracy Both Senica and Alajbegovic maintain that there is democracy n Yugoslavia, and pointed out one famed native of that nation, familiar lo thousands of Americans through his work, as a case in point. Ivan Mcstrovic, Ihc sculptor, came lo Ihe United States in 10-1(1 from Switzerland, where he haf previously been working. Mostro- vic remained and worked in tilt United Stales until his death las February. Hut before he left his native Yugoslavia, Metrovic had made his will. Its final terms were that he be buried in the great mausoleum where the past great of his kings, the bishops of the church, the military great, the heads of state, and many lesser ones. There, today, lies Ivan Mestro- vic, his mortal remains flown back to Yugoslavia by his own will -- and by one of the companies which really make his country run, Senica says. Personal View The newspaperman, friendly, interested and interesting, had this to volunteer: "Of all the coastal states ' In the United States, California and Alaska are the most beautiful. Of the cities, San Francisco." Senica also said he was. surprised by Americans everywhere he has been. He expected them, he said, to be close and reserved "like the British." Instead, he said, lie has found a warm friendliness, a certain sympathetic understanding, and open, friendly expression. He is pleased and glad. "Our Way" But his parting point was again a denial of Russia. "The peoples of Africa and some of Asia like the Tito system'. (These were S c n i c a ' s exact words.) They can see it is true, nobody lying. The Russians. . . they have their way, we have ours." Senica and Alajbegovic rose, smiled, and shook hands in tiie conventional manner. "We hope that you, loo, will visit Yugoslavia soon"! USAF Launches Secret Satellite POINT ARGUELLO, C a l i f . (UPI)-- The Air Force today, successfully launched a top-secret satellite, believed to be a MIDAS or SAMOS sky spy. The satellite was boosted into orbit by a powerful Atlas Agena- B booster combination. As has been the procedure on previous similar shots, the Air Force would neither confirm nor deny that the satellite was a sky spy. An Air Force spokesman said the Department of Defense bad imposed a policy of no longer using jmpular names on missile projects. U. S. Program On Alcoholics Crawls WASHINGTON (UPI) - T h c National Committee for the Prevention of Alcoholism said Sunday Ihe United States still is In the "dark ages" in its efforts lo set up a program against alcoholism. Dr. Winton H. Bcaven. director of institutes for Ihc committee, said there are at lotisl six million alcoholics in Ibis country and nine million "problem drinkers."
