Page 24 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA APRIL 30, 1965 City-Chamber industrial drive scores home run The decision of the La-Z-Boy chair company to locate a manufacturing plant here is a triumph for the City and the Chamber of Commerce in their efforts to attract payrolls and to broaden local employment opportunities. Like nearly every other city in the land, Redlands seeks to attract some industry. But the prominent successes since World War II can be counted on the fingers of one hand. In part, the limited results are explained by the split personality of Redlands which has created the impression abroad that the municipality really isn't serious about this objective. With the growth of the city, however, the need for more places of work, and for a deeper tax base to support the schools and local government, has become increasingly obvious. This has permitted the City and the Chamber to speak with authority when they offer a welcome to industrial prospects. Cooperation is now general in the community. Indeed, the "tremendous selling job" of the city, chamber and local realtors in this case climaxes a series of steps, indicating the genuine drive to attract industry. These include: —City Hall's decision to municipalize the Redlands airport for the reason that airports are attractive to certain industries. —Revising the zoning ordinance to make the provisions reasonable from the industrial prospect's point of view, at the same time protecting the city. —The Chamber's creation of an industrial aim — the Redlands Industrial Development Council. —Participation in the new Regional Economic Development Council, including a $10,000 city subscription. —Publication by the city of a carefully prepared industrial prospectus, 100 pages in length. —Operation of a site-inquiry clearing house by which the availability of industrial sites— known to local Realtors—is made known to industrial prospects. —Selection of Richard McHenry, an applicant with an impressive background in industrial development, as chamber manager. Mr. McHenry proved to be the trigger. He came here from Monroe, Michigan, the home of La-Z-Boy. Catching a hint that the company might establish a plant in California, he followed up with the personal support of others. Mayor Waldo Burroughs, Councilman Robert Wagner, Chamber President Joe Enarson and Mr. McHenry made a trip to Monroe to "sell Redlands". The Chamber manager spent most of last week there, finalizing the negotiations. In the opinion of City Manager Ralph P. Merritt, Jr., this aggressive and personalized campaign was a demonstration that Redlands is "tooled up for industry" and can now get results. It does look that way. Who came? — Bettina In Southern California, the American Civil Liberties Union is free of Communist control, according to the State Senate Committee on L 7 n-American Activities. In Redlands, persons of prominence who have been publicly identified with the organization, certainly are not Communists. Yet, the things that happen under ACLU auspices require an outsider to steel himself with objectivity to retain a judicial outlook. We refer to the meeting in San Bernardino Wednesday evening. The ACLU had invited a representative of the now-troubled Free Speech Movement at Berkeley to talk. According to their spokesman, they were in a position of having to take whoever came. And who came — why Bettina Aptheker, of course. Her father, Herbert Aptheker is a noted Communist theoretician and historian — a writer and public speaker. She is a member of the DuBois Club at Cal. To avoid the inference that this club is subject to Communist Party discipline, the members describe it as "Marxist". Of the 50 members of the original Free Speech Movement Board, two were DuBois Club members. Ask for an F.S.M. champion at San Bernardino and who does the ACLU get? Not any of the 48-non DuBois Club members. They get Bettina. Her appearance was legal. It was in accord with the way the U.S. Supreme Court reads the freedom of speech provision of the Bill of Rights. It fulfilled the natural desire of most of us to "hear both sides". Still, a lot of people would feel better about the ACLU if, when it holds up a shield of civil rights, the person behind it was not a Bettina Aptheker. The Newsreel Travel is getting more difficult. The airlines don't want to take you anywhere you want to go and the railroads want you to stay home. A big seller among children is the skateboard, which most of us invented 40 years ago. We're going to have to build more and more colleges, and one wonders where all the money and alma mater songs are to come from. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore A love of the farmer's lore of the weather, and a scientific eye for meteorology were combined in the late Floyd D. Young. He was the father of the Fruit-Frost Service of the U.S. Weather Bureau. For many years, he issued twice-daily forecasts for the citrus industry from his headquarters at Pomona. As a pioneer, Mr. Young had to study out many of_ the weather puzzles for himself. He wrote up quite a few of them in scientific reports. Now, his papers have been presented to the Citrus Experiment Station at the University of California, Riverside. They will be a valuable addition to the archives. Some forecasters are keen on air mass analysis — the battle between cold and warm, moist and dry. Some may still rely on an aching corn to tell them when a storm is coming. Mr. Young's true love was the type map. He was a great believer in the repeatability of the weather. After preparing a map showing the weather pattern today, he would thumb through his file of maps — classified by types — until he found the ones that matched most closely. Then he would see 'what weather developments had followed the conditions shown in the historic maps. Those maps ought to give any Riverside researcher a quick way of finding the major weather situations to be expected here. Among Mr. Young's scientific papers is "Desert Winds in Southern California", published in 1931. "While these winds still cause heavy damage to citrus groves every few years," he wrote, "there is no doubt that the same pressure gradients produce surface winds of considerably less severity now than they did in the days when Southern California was given over almost entirely to grazing. "Windbreaks, orchard and shade trees and buildings have moderated the fury of the gales which occurred in earlier times. Pioneer citrus growers tell of the terrific force of the desert winds of 50 years ago, of the unroofing of houses and barns and of crawling on hands and knees from house to barn to water the stock." Winds through Cajon Pass — and at times, directly over the mountain tops — "bring relative humidity in this region that is as low as anywhere in the world. . . . "The extreme dryness of a desert wind causes a change of frictional electricity to build up on objects insulated from the ground. Heavy charges develop on the body varnish of automobiles. When the driver reaches to open the door there often is an audible snap and unpleasant sensation in the hand and arms as the discharge takes place. "Reports have been made of the flashing luminosity of large pieces of gravel carried by the wind at night, whenever they touched the ground. These electrical manifestations are erroneously believed by a large proportion of Southern California residents to be the principal cause of damage to vegetation." As the Gulf Stream is a rivrr moving through an ocean of water, the Santa Ana Wind out of Cajon Pass sometimes retains its identity as a narrow stream of wind in an ocean of air. Speaking from the viewpoint of a motorist driving from Ontario to Colton on about the line of the present San Bernardino Freeway, he wrote: "On going eastward in the open country some seven miles south of Cajon Pass with light to gentle variable winds, one often passes abruptly into an air stream moving from the north- northeast at a velocity of 30 to 35 mph. The easterly limits of the stream usually are just as well marked and one passes from a near gale into a region Escalation Republican response gives new hope By Doris Fleeson Rediands Yesterdays TELEVISION FIVE YEARS AGO Temperatures — Highest 84, lowest 45.

The width of the air stream under these conditions probably will average about five miles. . . . "The stream may shift its position slightly from time-to- time but appears to change little in width or velocity."

Thsnks in part to the ARS, beekeepers now have a new machine that uncaps honeycombs. The next step, I presume, will be a flip- top honeycomb. Smells Like "Nootkatone" —"G" is for grapefruit. The ARS has identified the substance that gives grapefruit its distinctive aroma. It is called "nootkatone." —"R" is for rooster. I've already mentioned that once, but I feel so sorry for the poor bird, I thought I would give him an extra plug while he is still around to enjoy it. —"E" is for ears. Research into the physiological effect of noise on insects shows that if Indian meal moths are exposed to low frequency sound waves, a lot of their eggs won't hatch. —"S" is for "switch." This is a growth-regulating substance that has been isolated and iden- ified in plants. The ARS says "switch" may bring about revolutionary changes in agricul- ;ure. Farmers may one day be able to start and stop the growth of their crops "on command," so to speak. If so, old mother nature will be in the same boat with the rooster. —The final "S" is for surplus property. Which is what that unfortunate rooster may become. '- e I9«s fcy NH, Inc. "You gotta admit—it hearts afternoon TV!" and/or if the time comes thai we all join hands and go marching into the Great Society, I feel certain that the U.S. Agriculture Research Service will be at the head of the column. No other group that I know is doing more to lead us onward and upward than the good old ARS. During the year we get occasional reports on some of the wonders being performed by the boys down at the lab. But the full impact doesn't register until these marvels are all on view at the same time. A summary of recent agriculture research projects has just been published by a House appropriations subcommittee. Put them all together, they spell P-R-0-G-R-E-S-S, a word that means a lot to thee and me. Worms, Peaches and Pregnancy —"P" is for pink bollworms, peaches, pregnancy prevention and parthenogenesis. Within the past 12, months, the ARS'has: Unlocked the secret of what makes female pink bollworms attractive to male pink bollworms; Developed a new peach drink that can be made from peaches that are too ripe to ship and would otherwise be wasted; Found a new birth control method for dairy cows; and, conducted new experiments with parthenogenetic development, a mysterious process by which chickens are hatched from infertile eggs. —"R" is for rooster, which won't have much to crow about WASHINGTON - The Republican party is not united; it is broke; it is a minority of only one third of the Senate and House; its few Governors lack glitter; its major spokesmen leave the warmed-over taste on the palate. And yet 800 people have dined here at $500 a plate to finance the not-too-rosy prospect of electing more Republican Senators next year. This was not an enterprise of the rich and zealous rightwing- ers. It was accomplished by Sen. Thruston Morton of the Republican Senate Campaign Committee and his associates by writing letters. No arms were twisted; it was simply assumed that Americans understood the value of the two-party system in a democracy. The dinner sponsors admit to some surprise at the size of the response, and they are convinced that it means more than a net of about $300,000 to finance their labors. They believe, and they know their mailing list, that it reflects sentiment for a Republican party prepared to fight for the broad highway of American politics. Some previously discouraged tacticians among them are arguing with rare optimism that opportunity is knocking for a new generation of Republicans willing to enter the fight. As they see it, the Democratic army is overcrowded, with no more room for the young and ambitious, and its members are already competing with one another. This may be too optimistic a view, but political cycles have been the rule in the past and while there are campaign funds, there is certainly hope. It is conceded that Republican Senate prospects are less good in 1966 than they wera early in 1964 when the party had golden hopes of capturing eight to 10 Senate steals. They lost them all in the Johnson landslide. A cheerful Republican estimate is that only half of the 14 Republican incumbents up for re-election in 1966 are home free while at least 12 of 19 Democrats enjoy the same happy prospect. In four states energetic efforts to unseat Democrats are already planned* They include: Montana, where Rep. Jamea F. Battin is expected to oppose the exceptionally able Sen. Lea Metcalf. Oregon, where Gov. Mark Hatfield is seen as a sure victor over Sen. Maurine Neuberger or any one of several Democrats who may. challenge her in a primary. Tennessee, where ambitious young Republicans with political experience want the chance to oppose Sen. Ross Bass, a newcomer filling out the unexpired term of Estes Kefauver. Rhode Island, where Gov. John Chafee may take on Sen. Claiborne Pell. Republicans say frankly they can't attempt to judge the fortunes of their new recruit, Sen. Strom Thurmond, a Goldwater convert to their party and former Dixiecrat. They do not expect to profit by the problems of Sen. John Sparkman of Alabama with his segregationist Governor, George Wallace. They still think their modest hopes make even more significant the generous response to their pleas for Republican Senate campaign funds. (Copyright, 1965, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Chlorinated water helps in preventing infections By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt Q—Will chlorinated water in swimming pools be harmful to children, especially if they have a tendency to have earaches or sore throats? A—On the contrary, properly chlorinated water will help to prevent infections of all kinds. Of even greater help is the exclusion from the pool of persons with skin infections, recent smallpox vaccination, sore throats and other respiratory infections, pink eye or diarrhea. Well-run public pools are less likely to spread infections than unchlorinated lakes and pools. Q—I have been told to put copper sulfate in my backyard swimming pool. What would this accomplish? A—Copper sulfate is added to some pools to kill snails. This is especially important in areas where blood flukes are prevalent. For most backyard swimming pools the addition of alum to remove murkiness and chlor- Teletips Facts Classified Ads Can Sell Anything Call 793-3221 TOP SHOW:—10:00, Chan. 7. 12 O'clock High.

THE ALMANAC Today is Friday, April 30, the 120th day of 1965 with 245 to follow. The moon is approaching its new phase. The morning stars are Saturn and Mars. The evening stars are Mars and Jupiter. Franz Lehar, composer o£ light opera, was born on this day in 1870. Also Robert Shaw, American choral conductor, in 1916. On this day in history: In 1789, George Washington took the oath of office in New York City and was sworn in as first President of the United States. In 1812, Louisiana was admitted to the Union as the 18th state. In 1945, Nazi Dictator Adolf Hitler committed suicide in a bunker in Berlin. Also in 1945, Russian soldiers captured the Reichstag in Berlin and raised the Communist flag over the German capitol. A thought for the day: French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte once said: "From the sublime to the ridiculous is but a step." ine or bromine to kill bacteria and viruses is recommended. There should also be a continuous or a weekly complete change of water. Q—I have been lying down and taking a nap for about an hour after lunch for several years. Some of my friends say this is harmful. What do you think? A—In these hurried times there is no better way to preserve both your health and your sanity than to take a short nap after lunch. Too few persons are situated where it is convenient to do this, but even 10 or 15 minutes of complete relaxation in the middle of the day can give you renewed vigor for the afternoon's work. Q—My mother, who is 60 and has osteomalacia, fell and broke her shoulder. Her doctor said he couldn't set the fracture because the bones are so soft. What would you advise? A—Osteomalacia (softening of the bones) in adults, like rickets in children, is due to a deficiency of vitamin D or a failure of this vitamin to be absorbed into the blood. The disease is a common cause of fractures in elderly persons. Before the fracture can be treated the osteomalacia must be controlled. This requires taking foods that are rich in calcium (milk and cheese), calcium salts and vitamin D. When the bones have regained their normal hardness, an orthopedic surgeon may be able to fix the ends of the fractures in place with a metal plate.

Life consists not in holding good cards, but holding them well.—Josh Billings, American humorist and writer. The French ascent of Annapurna (26,391 feet) in 1950 under Maurice Herzog made a deep impression on mountain climbing and helped spur further ascents in the Himalayas. When he reached the top of Annapurna, it .was the highest peak man had then mastered. He-and his partner suffered severe frostbite which cost them parts of their 'fingers and .toes. © Encyclopaedia Britognica
