12 -Tae3day, May 4, IMS neilmis Dnill facli Civil rights move change forecast Radical changes in the whole character of the civil rights movement are predicted by a University of California law professor. Robert M. O'Neil, acting associate professor of law at the Berlveley campus, says areas remaining for the courts to police have been "happily minimized" by recent federal legislation. Speaking to a University Extension lecture course, "Indivi-| dual Rights and Liberties," he discussed "The Supreme Court in the Political Forefront: Reapportionment and Civil Rights." After a decade of preoccupation with civil rights cases, and thanks to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the voting rights bill of 1965, "there are few residual issues remaining," he said. Noncompliance will become difficult since the federal government may cut off its substantial aid funds under Title 6 of the Civil Rights Acts. "This threat of withholding the carrot will accomplish what the stick never could," O'Neil said. He forecast a shift away from civil rights issues before the Supreme Court, back to the civil liberties questions of the '30s and '40s. And he said, the court's willingness—"sometimes even apparent eagerness"—to tackle "messy political questions" may bring profound changes in the federal balance of power. This willingness has "elim Inated what used to be an important barrier to any court's consideration of political questions," O'Neil added. Despite current proposals in Congress to reverse court-ordered reapportionment of state legislatures with a Constitutional amendment, he said such a re versa! is unlikely. "By the time the amendment gets around to the states for approval — assuming that it can pet two-thirds support in the House and Senate—more than one-fourth of the state legislatures probably will have been reapportioned. "It's doubltful that a reapportioned body is going to vote to bring back the old guys from the hills," he commented. Why has the Supreme Court chosen to enter what the late Chief Justice Feli.\- Franfurter called the "political thicket," after scrupulously avoiding it for years? There are subtle changes in the court's "attitudes and emphasis" that account for tliis, O'Neil says: An increasing concern for the individual as opposed to the masses. Mussels now quarantined or smmtr Tlie yearly quarantine of mussels for human consumption goes into effect May 1 as a protection to Californians from the highly toxic poison present in the shellfish during the summer and early autumn months, according to Dr. Malcolm II. Merrill, state health director. The quarantine, established along the California coast and including San Francisco Bay, will be in effect to October 31. he reported. Mussels may be used for bait during the quarantine period, but must be broken open and placed in containers plainly marked in large print, "Mussels may contain poison. Unfit for human food." The director also warned Californians to be cautious in the preparation of clams for sum mer meals. He advised that clams should be cleaned and washed tlioroughly before cooking and that all dark parts (where poison concentrates during the quarantine period) should be discarded. Only the white meat should be eaten. In addition, clams should be taken from areas free of sewage contamination. The poison, found in plankton •which serves as food for mussels and clams, is an alkoloid which acts like strychnine and can prove fatal to persons eating the toxic shellfish. The health officers of the coastal and Bay counties will post quarantine signs for mussels, and warning signs for clams. Church seeks approval for Yucaipa site A public hearing has been scheduled before the county Planning Commission May 13 to consider a request by the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints for approval of a churcii site in Yucaipa. The request by Merrell B. Dahlstrom asks approval to construct the church, with a 63-feet high tower, on the west side of Sixth street, about 1,290 feet south of Avenue E. Persons owning property affected by the proposed chui'ch construction may appear and bo heard during the public hearing which is scheduled for 2 p.m. mir/pm —1111' A shifting emphasis from gov- ervnmental non-interference to governmental aid. "It's no longer enough to satisfy the Supreme Court that an individual is left alone by government. Now there's a governmental obligation to take affirmative action to help him." The touchstone used to be "due process;" now it's "equality" in civil rights and criminal cases. "Many former practices among law enforcement officers won't pass muster now. The court is concerned that the poor man gets justice equal to the rich man's." O'Neil predicted that these changes in court attitudes will lead to complete elimination of the "double standard" between state and federal proceedings, and to "radical expansion" of the use of the "cruel and unusual punishment" clause. UR student gets grant Unda J. Hargis, a Riverside student attending the University of Redlands, has been awarded one of the $500 scholarships awarded annually by the Riverside Foundation. The seholarsliips come from funds left to the Foundation by Charles Brouse to assist worthy graduates of Riverside area high schools to continue their college educations. They will all be juniors at four-year colleges and universities next year. Bryn Mawr market asks zone change Requests for a zone change and for approval of a roof sign at Bell's Market in Bryn Mawr will be considered by tlie county Planning Commission on May 13. Kathryn C. Bell, owner of the market, has applied for a change of zoning classification from limited agriculture to C-1 neighborhood business. The rezoning is sought in order to bring zoning into line with the present commercial use of the property. Bell's Market, in existence for more than 10 years, is located near the southwest comer of Barton road and Bryn Mawr ave nue. The present agricultural zoning limits the size of the property of a minimum of 10 acres. The request for the roof sign on the market was filed by Walter S. CuiTin. The Planning department reported the proposed NINE-POUND BROCOLI LONDON (UPI) — Oddities for the produce show: a giant, nine-pound broccoli with a circumference of 3 feet 4 inches, grown by Herbert Skipper of Saham Hills; and a freak nar- cis.sus with six blooms on a single stalk, gro\vn by W. Y. Alston of Hellesdon. sign would be illuminated and would read "Liquor." Also on the county planners' May 13 agenda is a public hearing -to consider a request by Peter and .Anita Barron, of Bryn MawT who seek to build a sec- sond residence on property on the south side of First street, approximately 800 feel cast of Whitlier avenue in Bryn .Mawr. All three of the above hearings are scliedulcd to begin shortly after 2 p.m. Facts Classified Ads Can Sell Anything Call 793-3221 Hereltlie fcket... 5 BIG SALE DAYS!
