iFa cfjg Page 24 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA APRIL 28, 1965 San Bernardino will rue the day it has a World's Fair The City of San Bernardino is toying with the idea of having a World's Fair. This is insanity. World's Fairs have a history of financial failure. There is no way of predicting in advance what their drawing power will be. Even the greatest city in the country, New York, is now in difficulty, the fair there having been a poorer magnet than anticipated and now opening for the second season. In California, Long Seach has been engaged in an on-again, off-again World's Fair proposition. The story of that flirtation is "trouble, trouble, trouble." Seattle did manage to stage a fair—modest in size as such ventures go — and emerge with civic improvements, including a fine concert hall. However, the fair was integrated with long range plans for upgrading the City and required the adoption of a bond issue to support it. But San Bernardino is not Seattle. It isn't a fraction the size of the Washington city. It doesn't have the resources. It doesn't have the hotel accommodations. And it doesn't have the climate. There is some merit in "Thinking Big". But at the moment a very popular German automobile is having great success with a counter- theme, "Think Small". San Bernardino would be well advised to try that one on for size. The new Unruh Jesse M. Unruh is not going to'perish from the Hollywood affliction of becoming type-cast for life. A few years ago he was out in front, pushing liberal measures as hard as he could. The most famous one was the Unruh Act which aimed to eliminate racial discrimination in the sale of houses. It didn't prove to be tough enough because enforcement provisions lacked legal teeth. So the Legislature tightened it up in the form of the Rumford Act. When Fair Housing was put before the voters, each citizen registering his own opinion in the secrecy of the voting booth, it turned out that Unruh was far out of line with the majority of opinion. The public killed the Unruh-turned-Rumford Act by a landslide. The Speaker of the Assembly got the word. Employment prospects at the top of the California ladder are poor for the politician who is strongly type cast as a liberal. Hence, Mr. Unruh's speech Monday (he makes several a week) was pitched on this level: The new wave in politics and government in California is moving toward moderation. There is a new- dynamism in moderation, and responsibility in a politician has become a positive virtue. Instead of whooping it up for the sales tax he was declaring: "Property taxes are regressive, unrelated to ability to pay, impossible to administer fairly, destructive in economic impact, and too damned high." No key figure in recent California politics has switched his image from liberal to moderate. Unruh looks as if he will be the first, to manage this difficult feat.

When, on rare occasions, they do talk they will tell you that progress in aviation comes at a dear cost in human life.

Price: one human life. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore Since 1947 the completion of one project after another has added links to the freeway system between Redlands and Los Angeles International Airport. Now the chain is complete. You can drive onto the freeway at Orange street here and get off at Century boulevard, at the very corner of the airport. In all that distance, there is not a single traffic light or crossing at grade. This, then, can stand as our final report on the route — an intermittent series through the years that has brought us inquiries by the dozen. Someone is always about to drive Aunt Nellie to the airport and asks: "How did you say was the best way to go?" If you want to use the all- freeway route go west on Interstate 10 (San Bernardino and Santa Monica Freeways). Go south on Interstate 405 (San Diego Freeway). Go off at Century boulevard which is signed "Los Angeles International Airport". The distance is 82 miles. From ignition-on in Redlands to ignition-off at the airport the driving 'time is 90 minutes provided that you stay within speed limits and that you are lucky enough to avoid freeway congestion. This route is an alternate to the one you have probably been driving in the past year: west on Interstate 10, south on Harbor freeway, west on Century boulevard. That route is fivs miles shorter but requires five miles of go-stop driving on Cen- lury boulevard. By our careful lest, it takes three minutes longer. As you swim in your pool in September. 1967. you will be looked down upon by pilots of StarLifter cargo planes as they fly out of Norton and cross over town. We think it is only fair that since you won't be able to see from your backyard into their winged sky rooms, you should know about the pilot's surroundings. On these we can report from having made an inspection Friday while flying from Los Angeles to Travis AFB with the Military Air Transport Command — the outfit that is going to move into Norton in V 67. The first thing you should know about this new Lockheed flying machine is that the front office has class. Somebody turned an interior decorator loose in there and he didn't spare the color. The walls are a soothing pastel green. The pilot and co-pilot sit in armchairs that are cocktail-lounge red. These elegant seats are distinctly of the executive type. We doubt that Courtlandt S. Gross, the head of Lockheed, has finer furniture in his office at Burbank. Out of the panorama window? the view is splendid. If the crew tires of that, however, there is an aviators "television" screen for everybody — the fliers, the navigator and the engineer. The program is strictly a radar view of the ground or of the thunder clouds ahead. Unlike home video, these screens do not have sound. There is no voice that explains: "The dark area in the center of the screen is San Francisco Bay". You're supposed to know. The instrument panels in front of the pilot and co-pilot would strike you as different from what you expected, even if you had never been in a big airplane. Gone are the instruments with round dials — a shape of instrument that has been in vogue since the sun dial was invented. Instead these gauges read vertically like a common wall thermometer. They are so arranged that with one swift horizontal glance the pilot can tell if everything is right. On the walls of the office are wondrous instruments that make up sort of a "science fair" for visiting adults. Our favorite is the automatic celestial navi- "I Haven't Had a Square Meal Since Lunch!" Johnson defends Viet Nam policies By Doris Fleeson The Newsreel Self-service gasoline stations are said to be the coming thing. But do they have a machine that will refold the road maps? One thing about a society like Russia's; it makes it easier to order up a bunch of volunteers. The teenage lovely down the block has her application in and hopes she is accepted by the college of her boy friend's choice. In any crowd it's always easy to spot the lady who hates cats. She's the one the household cat is lavishing all the affection on. We trust it won't work out that way again, but history indicates that when literature starts emphasizing how funny the preceding war was, another is about to break out. When a fellow got shaggy we used to tell him, "Get a haricut or buy a fiddle." Now it's, "Get a haircut or carry a picket sign." The man at the next desk says, "The most irritating conversationalist is the one who wants to talk about my business when I'm eager to tell him how to run his."

"I've just seen ifie qwnfesseme <rf 's'faotion comedies' —a half-hour of straight canned laughter!" WASHINGTON (UPD—Purely in the interest of science, you understand, I dropped in at a cocktail party being given by the Women's League of Traffic Safety. Actually, it wasn't really a party in the conventional sense of the word. The ladies were assembled to witness a demonstration of one of those machines, commonly known as a "drunkometer." And they invited me to serve as one of the guinea pigs. They could not, of course, use real guinea pigs in a demonstration of this sort. Experience has shown that real guinea pigs tend to get rather belligerent after a couple of drinks. Although forewarned that the party wasn't going to be exactly a swinging affair, I accepted the invitation anyway. Having once taken a blood oath to uphold the code of the freeloader, I could hardly have done otherwise. (Section 8 of the Freeloader's Code reads: "Never look a gift bartender in the martini pitcher.") Lawrence A. Pavlinski of the Bureau of Public Roads, who was in charge of the demonstration, told us guinea pigs to consume our "normal" amount. This presented technical difficulties. The league had enlisted a police sergeant to operate the "drunkometer." Having a policeman in the room can cause a person's drinking norm to fluctuate drastically. We did the best we could under the circumstances, and then we all went over and breathed into the . machine, which registered the amount of alcohol on our breath. In most states using the breath test, a motorist must have a reading of at least .15 per cent before' he is presumed to have been driving while intoxicated. None of us got above .07 per cent. My own reading was only x .04, and I sort of felt that I had let Pavlinski down. I also began to have some misgivings .about whether such demonstrations were in the public interest. Although intended to show that even the "social drinker" is a menace on the highway, it WASHINGTON _ President Johnson is firing his biggest propaganda guns, himself included, against any and all who question his Viet Nam policy. The effort reveals significantly more than his customary dislike of criticism. What most impresses observers is that all the propagandists display sublime self-confidence that they are on the right path. No shade of doubt troubles them; they have already answered the relevant questions to their own satisfaction. It has been an unrelieved exhibition of true believers, carried out, according to one spellbound spectator, in an aura of self-righteousness not seen since the British built a bonfire under Joan of Are. That this should be true of such long-time shapers and operators of Viet Nam policy as Presidential advisor McGeorge Bundy and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara is not so surprising. Their prestige and even their Presidential appointments ride on the outcome. It is more surprising that their hard-headed convert, the President, does not appear to be asking them when the stock they sold him will begin to pay dividends. He is firmly joined in the effort to squelch those who think that a re-examination of some initial premises is indicated. By now, the Propaganda Week That Was is well understood in Washington, where few developments of this kind remain secret for long. It began Thursday night with an off-the-record dinner at which McNamara talked with reporters about Viet Nam. The general import of his remarks, attributed by agreement to "unofficial sources,'.' was published Sunday. Secretary of State Dean Rusk finished the curtain-raiser. Fri- day he assailed those who argue that U.S. tactics in Viet Nam will not produce victory or a settlement and may lead to a big war. These critics, Rusk said, are "talking nonsense about the nature of the struggle." Sunday's stories,, officially intended only as a persuasive restatement of U.S. policy, dad not turn out quite that way. The point of greatest concern, to the world in any military situation remains what use this country will make of nuclear power, and most accounts naturally stressed what was said about it Thursday. What was said was correct and not new. It was that the United States would refuse to tie its hands with advance promises that nuclear weapons would not be used. This is viewed as the great deterrent to war. McNamara also added that under existing circumstances there is no prospect of using them. Nonetheless, tremors of apprehension surged around the world. No doubt they were intensified by accompanying announcements that another 5,000 American ground troops will go to Viet Nam in May, evidence that further escalation of t h e war is intended. Monday morning early, McNamara sought to recover with an open press conference devoted to proving that American policy was succeeding in Viet Nam. He had his charts handy and a Red Chinese gun on display to liven up the show. Confronted with questions about the Sunday stories, he coldly took evasive action. This was the situation when the President saw the press Tuesday in an unusual conference marked by advance notice of the time, 4 p.m., and an adequate meeting place, the East Room of the White House.

Brandstadt When handling any kind of electrical equipment, remember that you may not be the best conductor of an electric current —but you'll do. Most people who carefully avoid high tension lines fail to realize that the 110 to 120 volts in their homes also can be deadly. It is not the number of volts that does the damage, but rather the amount and duration of the current and the route it takes through the body. For example, a person may recover from a short charge of 750 volts, but under different conditions be killed by a current of only 50 volts. The National Safely Council cites the example of a man who was using a defective electric drill and was killed when he touched a metal laundry tub; a woman who walked through her flooded basement to her deep freeze that had become short circuited and was killed when she touched the lid; a 2- year-old boy who died after putting a frayed electric wire in his mouth. All these accidents were preventable. Teletips TOP SHOW:—9:00, Chan. 2.

I figured that if word of that got around, someone.at a non-. scientific cocktail party might use the information in the wrong way. It could produce a situation. something like this: She: "You better watch it, Buster. You've got to drive home, you know." He: "Shucks, I haven't even hit .09 yet." Pavlinski assured the ladies, however, that even though my breath was below the legal limit, my driving skill had nevertheless been impaired. That made me feel a lot better. I would have hated to- have been a total flop as a guinea Pig- If a current passes from a person's hand through his arm, down his flank and out through his foot, it is much less likely to harm him than if it passes from one arm through the chest and out the other arm because in so doing it may paralyze the chest muscles and prevent breathing. It may also paralyze the heart. Water is a good conductor and perspiration, because it contains salt, is even better. Thus, a current passing through wet skin is many more times likely to cause a severe shock than if it passes through dry skin. An example is the baby who, while being bathed in a kitchen sink, was killed by the current that reached the bath water from a radio that was sitting on the wet drain-board. The soap in the water was an added factor in increasing the current. Electric burns are often painless because they have killed the sensory nerves in the burned area. There may not be much external evidence of the burn, but following recovery from the initial shock there may be muscle soreness, fatigue and headache. It may be several days after a severe shock before your doctor can evlauate all the damage done. In rescuing a victim, first try to shut off the current. If the victim is still in contact with the current, you must use a very dry board or rope to remove him and you must stand on dry ground while doing it. You will not help matters by becoming a casualty yourself. When the victim is free, apply artificial respiration. Once he is breathing, be ready to apply it again because the breathing may stop within the next 30 minutes. Dolls dating from 3000 to 2000 B.C., carved of fiat pieces of wood, have been found in Egyptian graves. Dolls were buried in children's graves in Egypt, Greece and Rome and have been found in early Christian catacombs. The earliest known American dolls were those found in Aztee graves. About 1820, the first.China dolls were imported from Europe into! America.- © Incyclopoedia Britannic!
