Brother Juniper "I'll bet he doesn't bite HIS fingernails!" Blue Lake Freeway Plan Given Priority By Board A group of Blue Lake citizens appeared yesterday at the Hun holdt County Board of Supervisors session to ask that supervisor include the Blue Lake Freeway in the "A" category of th 1 annual request to the State Highway Commission. Wava DeMotte, Blue Lake newspaper publisher, presented letter from the Blue Lake Chamber of Commerce which said tha the freeway had been approved by supervisors in 1957, and lo dal there has been no action. Val F. Meyer, Chamber president, pointc out thai Highway 299 between Blue Lake and Arcata is extreme! hazardous and many accidents have taken place on that stretc of road. Ann Landers ANSWERS YOUR PROBLEMS A traffic count indicates that 6000 vehicles use the road daily. It was also pointed oul lo Ihe group that lumber interests are anxious lo "get things done." and two persons are delaying starling construct ion of new motels until the freeway question is settled. Supervisors agreed to place I Blue Lake Freeway on the cou ty's "A" schedule. A hearing on eslablishment of single family residence - agricu lure zone at Bayside was co tinued lo next Tuesday after s pcrvisors agreed to make change in the recommendation e made by the Planning Commi sion. . Edward Nielsen, property ow er in the area who has foug the issue, asked the board to r duce the zoning setback on th west side of the Old Arcata Rpa to 120 feel, rather than 300 fei as requested. He said he wou "go along" with a master zonin plan, bul did nol like spol zonin He pointed out that there ha been little construction in the Ba. side area for the pasl seven year and whal building there has bee consists of homes. E. M. Pctterscn. board chai man, said he felt the 120-feet re quest was reasonable. Supervisor Sam Merryman J objected lo the entire zoning pla because, he said, when zoning i planned there should be provisioi made for all types of develop menl, i n c l u d i n g commei dal a r e a s .

He contended that this i not the right way to plan, an limits proper development. N. J. Lund. Planning Com mission chairman who was a tending the session, pointed ou that citizens in various areas as for specific types of zoning an "get it." He added that there ar commercial areas in Bayside. Merryman answered that th Bayside cutoff which links the 01 Arcata Road with Highway 10 is heavily travelled, and has large commercial potenlial. Su pervisor Norman Robertson sail tlie single residential zoning "cai always be changed," and Merry man countered by saying "thei we'll have irale citizens. " "I believe we should conside the desires of the people," Pet Lersen said. The proposition was tabled, am the hearing will be continued ti next Tuesday to allow a new de scriplion of the area to be drawn up. Late yesterday morning, Rober Madison, counly fqresler for Ihi last two years, tendered his resig nation.

Ford In Decision Against Cardinal DETROIT (UPI) - The Ford Motor Co. has abandoned plans to iroduce its small Cardinal aulo- nobile in the United States be- ause of a swing by the American onsumer to larger and fancier ars. Board Chairman Henry Ford If said Tuesday night that after 'long and serious consideration" t was decided not to build the ar here this year. The reasons, Ford said, were market conditions and other fac- ors." Another executive explained hat "the time isn't right" for anther small car since sales of tiny mport models are slumping. Sales of foreign cars here ropped from 610,000 in 1959 to ',000 last year. Most of the de- line has come in tiny cars such s Renault. Only Volkswagen im- roved its record. Dear Ann Landers: You are supposed to be a big problem solver. I am 11 years old and I have a big problem for you to solve. I am loo kind-hearted. If the kid next to me wants lo 'borrow an eraser I say yes. If the girl across from me wants lo borrow some notebook paper I say yes.. These people know good ami well lhat they need certain supplies to do their school work. Yet they are always running oul of stuff and borrowing from me. · I- guess you might say my problem is I can't say no. Please help me.--JOHN Dear John: No is a perfectly respectable word--and you should learn, right now, how to use it. Everybody runs out of something at one lime or another. It is always nice lo help a friend who is in a spot. There is such a thing as being a shnook, however. If the same person tries lo borrow from you three days in a row I should tell him "I have to buy my supplies and it's time you bought yours." Dear Ann: My problem isn't original. Tnere must be thousands of olhers in the same boat. What's Ihe solution? I arise at 5:00 a. m., fix lunches and breakfast for my husband and myself. He gels up at 5:45. At 7:00 a. m. 1 wake Ihe two children, dress them, feed them and take them upstairs to the baby-sitter. I then dash lo gel the 7:50 bus. (My husband rides with a friend.) ' After work I rush home, pick up the children and start supper. My husband gets home an hour before I do but he has to bathe, shave and read the evening news. After dinner and dishes I do some cleaning, washing and ironing. My husband meanwhile is in his favorite chair watching TV and .drinking beer. At 8:00 I slop whatever I'm doing and get the children bathed and ready for bed.. I then return to my cleaning and ironing: By this time my husband has had several cat-naps. By 11:30 I'm ready to collapse, so I bathe and prepare for the next day. At midnight when I finally fall inlo bed, my husband gets romantic. I can't afford to quit my job. What do you suggest?--TIRED Dear Tired: I'm surprised you aren't dead. How long do you think you can- keep on with a 19-hour-day? Your husband should help you with the dinner dishes and the cleaning. He can also give you a hand by bathing Ihe children and pulling them into bed. From your description it sounds as if he doesn't touch the kids with a slick. With his help you should be in bed by 10:00. And since he wi have been pilching in, too, he won't be quite so zippy every nighl Dear Ann Landers: I'm 20 years old and I work as a punch-pres operator. I make very good money for a girl my age. This fellow I've been going with since September is the bcsl looking guy who ever hit town. He's built like Hock Hudson an has a voice like Rock, loo. Unfortunately he has had some troubl hanging on to a job. I've kept up the payments on his car an gave him money for room rent a few times. He is very appreci live. Please don'l get the idea that he's a sponger because h isn't. He's just had some lousy breaks. When he's loaded he talks about marriage, but when he's sobe he avoids the subject. I'd give my eye-teeth to marry this guy How can I do it?-SOFT-HEARTED Dear Soft-Hearted: He doesn't want your eye-teeth, honey, hi only wants your financial help and the pleasure of your company My advice is to drop him, unless you want to continue to pou: your hard-earned dough down a bottomless well. To learn- how to keep your boy friend in line without losing him, send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "Necking and Petting-And How Far To Go," enclosing with your request 20c in coin am a long, self-addressed, slamped envelope.

Although Democrats oulnum- bered Republicans 44-34 in the lower house, 54 votes are needed for final approval of a budget. In the first budget session, the Democrats fell short by 9 voles of passing the budget and Brown was forced to call a special session to work out a compromise. Initial efforts to effect a budget settlement failed because of GOP demands that the budget be cut by $20 million. But Tuesday, both sides appointed five members to meet in "truce team" effort lo work out a compromise. Tuesday nighl, leaders of both Jarlies reported to the lower house that "we are making real jrogrcss but we need a litlle more time." However, (he shaky efforts lo vork out a compromise were given a setback by GOP standards iccause of a speech the governor made last night to a meeting of Democrats in Fresno. Brown claimed the Republicans vere blocking his budget "for po- ilical ransom." He labeled his ipponents as "Republican extrem- sts" who were "trying to save heir political skins." This drew a blast from Assemblyman John A. Busterud, chairman of the GOP caucus in the Assembly. "The governor has deall a serious body blow to the efforts, being made to work out budget cuts acceptable lo both parties," he said. "It will do little, good for the group of negotiators from both parties to continue their efforts if the governor is going to keep up his battle of emotionalism." Appointed to the Democratic .nice team were Assemblymen Jerome R. Waldie, majority leader; Robert W. Crown, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee; John C. Williamson, Bakersfield; Thomas M. Rees, Los Angeles and Pauline Davis, Portoln. Republicans named Glenn E. Coolidge, Felton: Don Mulford, Berkeley; Howard J. Thelin, who speaks on fiscal affairs in the Assembly for GOP gubernatorial candidate Richard M. Nixon; Houston I. Flournoy, Clairemonl and Clark L. Bradley, San Jose.
