S«crtUiy-Gener»lL mOTertslr( ; edb y theWfst . Soviet, Cyprus Talk of Airline Assemblyman Tom Bane of North Hollywood the other day raised questions about Long Beach State College's proposed nine-story Theme Building. or less earthquake damage in the little over a century since California has It might involve earthquake hazards. Bane suggested, since "Long Beach is on a fault-line." The assemblyman thus picked up and passed on some more of our earthquake folklore--that the only danger f r o m earthquakes is along a relatively few fault-lines. Famed seismologist Charles F. Richter discusses this and other earthquake myths ia the current issue of the California Institute of Technology Quarterly. There are faults almost everywhere ia Califor- WELLS nia, Richter says, and every part of the state is shaken from time to time. "The popular press," Richter writes, "by continual emphasis on active faults in general and the San Andreas fault in particular, gives its readers the idea that risk is concentrated near the faults. This is not true. In any large earthquake, the damaging shaking extends to long distances from the fault which has moved; and in California * there are so many active faults that in the long run every locality is exposed to the risk of heavy shaking. There is no "safe" area. AH the older centers of population have had more been a state.' About 'Positively' Mrs. Carmea Warschiw, chairman of the California Fair Employment Practices Commission, thought she had a commitment from State Democratic Chairman Gene Wymaa to support her for national Democratic committeewoman in California. Howsoever, she says Gene now tells her the commitment isn't binding because it wasn't in writing. Carmen showed up at the California Democratic Council convention at the Lafayette last weekend and passed out big buttons to her friends. The buttons read: -Get It In Writing." Just Tins Side of 'Taps' According to the Courier, publication of the Long Beach Public Library, a young boy showed up at the library's record section the other day and asked to check out a recording of bugle calls. Librarian Helen Kennedy asked him if he were studying the bugle. No. he said, he was a paper carrier and had several younger boys assisting him on his route. He wanted the bugle call recording to play over the telephone to the ether boys to let them know its time to start their routes.
