REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA Page 20 MAY 5, 1965 Look the World's Fair gift horse in the mouth A county bond issue would be required to underwrite a 1968, San Bernardino World's Fair. Before the Supenasor's proceed to a decision on this issue, they are hereby notified that the Facts is opposed to this proposition at this time. Unless there is an e.xtra- ordinary change in the apparent circumstances, we would expect to be against such a bond issue when it came to a vote. As we understand the situation, there is an international association governing when and where World's Fairs shall be conducted. This organization sanctioned an exhibition at Long Beach. When the City of Long Beach got down to brass tacks on the deal, the result was one disagreement after another among the interested parties. In the end, they abandoned the project. Under the rules, however, a World's Fair "franchise" is transferable within a state. It is the default by Long Beach that now puts the proposition up for grabs. Having failed in Long Beach, the promoters are now shifting to San Bernardino. This is a bad beginning and in itself should be a warning to everyone in San Bernardino county to look this gift horse in the mouth. The promoters keep talking about the success of the Seattle World's Fair and what that city got out of it in the way of permanent civic buildings. This comparison, however, serves to highlight the fact that San Bernardino is not big enough to undertake a World's Fair on its own responsibility. They are not talking about a San Bernardino City Bond Issue as the financial foundation. It is the inability of the County Seat to support the Fair that would require a county bond issue. As explained to the Supervisors Monday the proposed financing method calls for: 1. An agreement by the county to lease the buildings and pay rent on them for 15 to 20 years. 2. Issuance of bonds by a locally-controlled fair corporation, backed up by the county's tax base. o. Repayment of bonds with fair receipts and cancellation of the lease. If the receipts fall far short of expectations, the county would have to continue the lease payments. This raises the question: "Would llie Fair succeed financially?" At first blush, the prospects look poor. The natural habitat of an international exhibition is a great metropolis — New York, Chicago. San Francisco, Seattle. It just doesn't look as if San Bernardino is a big enough city. There are no modern first-class hotels. The restaurants are geared primarily to a local clientele. The city has no airport of its own and Ontario International Airport is not directly sei'ved by jet airliners. Nor is the summer climate in our valley an inducement to a large attendance. Can't you see the headlines in San Francisco: "San Bernardino Fair Swelters. Temperature Reaches 110"? If the Fair doesn't pay its own way. the debt will be a lien against the property of everyone in the county. This is not a luxury the taxpayers can affoi-d, and it is difficult 1o imagine the adoption of a World's Fair Bond Issue. Nor is the argument persuasive that the "county" would get the Fair buildings in return for payments on the bonds. The buildings would be situated at the Orange Show in San Bernardino and would have minimal value to Redlands, Yucaipa, Ontario, Victorville and Bar.stow. Indeed, this is a proposition to benefit San Bernardino city at the expense of the rest of the county. If more public buildings is what they want, let the people of San Bernardino pay for tliem — just like all the i-est of us in other cities. Encourage Good Samaritans One of the favorite journalistic exercises in the past year has been to accuse individual 'Americans of being Bad Samaritans. Time and again an incident will be reported together with a commentry that by-standers did not go to tlie aid of the victim "because they did not wish to become involved". In our opinion non-involvement has always been the normal condition and is not something new and different. It stems from the fact that few people have the presence of mind in a crisis to act instantly and decisively. Nearly any group is made up of followers — not leaders. But if there is anything that can be done to further Good Samaritanism it is to get the law over on the right side. As matters now stand, the fellow who goes to a rescue practically needs a lawyer at his side to tell him if he has the authority to act and if he will get sued for his trouble. California has previously enacted a law to protect doctors who stop at accidents to help victims. Now the Legislature has several measures that would extend the principle to other citizens. Although sticky legal problems are involved here, which must be left to technicians in the Legislature, the general policy of making Good Samaritanism attractive should be encouraged. a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore As all of the natives know, the stream course through Sylvan Park is the Zanja. Nearly all of them call it "The Sankey". There is no use in giving lectures on the correct pronunciation of Spanish words. This one has been corrupted for so many years that it is a name in its own right. Now we are astonished to learn that there is a place in California called Sankey. According to the Automobile Club of Southern California, it is located 22 miles north of Sacramento in Sutter County. We cannot find it on any road map. nor does the name appear in the directory of post offices. So it can't be much more than a wide spot along the road. Wo are hopeful that someone from Sutter county will explain that there was once a Spanish water ditch there—a zanja — and that the settlement is thus called Sankey. However, some spoilsport may report that Sankey is merely an old family name in Sutter County. When recounting the upward steps in her life, a lady we know likes to recall that honor first came to her in elementary school. She was elected Wastcbaskcl Chairman of her room. We had always understood that this was a singular mark of distinction. However, a suspicion has now been planted by Principal Don Mactnlosh who discourses upon such honors in his latest report on life at the Franklin Elementary School. He calls it: "Love Those Little Je- kylls". Here it is— In polite society we refer to our children as youngsters, pupils, or little darlings. We might be more precise in labeling them little monsters. Before our very eyes (just like on the late show) these strange beings demonstrate a remarkable facility for dramatic be haviour change. Reluctant "chore doers" leave home each morning. Somewhere bclwcen the mail bo.x and the schoolground, a miraculous change takes place. Kids, who ten minutes before had no time to sweep the porch, would now deem it a distinct pleasure to sweep the whole playground. Like Boy Scouts six weeks behind in good deeds . . . five days before Christmas, everyone is searching frantically for their fair share of duties. Can you imagine kids fighting to clean lunch tables? A compa.ssionate principal tries to give everyone a turn. One boy worked his way up from "window closer" to "waste basket carrier" . . . and in only three weeks. Carrying a basket down the aisle is very exciting, as your little friends (three rows awayj will try to help you fill it. "Flower watercr" is very big this season . . . especially if you can haul water the length of the hall in a leaky bucket. There arc, of course, certain hazards. One boy accidentally erased the names of the "after- schoolers" and got broken to chalkboard monitor second class. When the word got around, he was elected class president. If not controlled, this zeal for service can bring forth startling events. Did you ever see eight boys walk by carrying a broom? With over five hundred hypnotized laborers, the principal finds himself wondering how long it would take thirty boys to polish his- car. Unfortunately, children only perform light housekeeping, and then never at the expense of their lessons. Pupils want to be a part nf something, and this docs help build pride in their school. Teachers find it necessary to keep,score .so that every youngster may participate. Let it be said that no child will be deprived of an opportunity to serve with distinction. .•\n<l what if this magic worked the other way? Can you imagine your saj'ing.

"Sure, ibe boxes are the same she, but this one has 55 per cent less air." LIGHTER SIDE On television W.-\SHINGTON (UPI) — As anyone who has ever fallen in arrears on a charge account can attest, bill collectors are noted for their resourcefulness and dedication to duty. If bill collectors ran the Red Cross, they likely would send bloodmobiies into turnip patches. What is more, they might turn up a few donors. The perseverance and ingenuity of bill collectors probably cannot be matched anywhere— except by the perseverance and ingenuity of deadbeats. When the bill collector and the deadbeat collide, you get a rough approximation of the irresistible force versus the immovable body. This can lead to some rather interesting situations, one of which recently turned up before the Federal Trade Commission. Until the FTC put a stop to the practice, it worked something like this: A bill collector would send the name and address of a By DICK WEST deadbeat to a man in Detroit. He, in turn, would send the deadbeat a postcard. The card would inform the deadbeat that "Your name has been chosen as the recipient of a new model car. If you will answer all the questions, and fill out and mail the attached card, it will insure correct processing and proper delivery." The questions that the deadbeat was invited to answer involved such things as the name of his employer, whether his wife was employed and what time he could usually be found at home. The deadbeat, thinking he was about to receive a new auto, on which he would not have to default any payments, would complete the form and Imail it back. Then the man in Detroit would forward the information to the bin collector, who would use it to put the squeeze on the deadbeat. In return for divulging data WASHINGTON — A sickness like McCarthyism is stirring again in this country. Each new period of tension in the cold war seems to arouse a patent paranoia ui our own national makeup. The quagmire of 'Viet Nam has once more unleashed all the insecurities, frustrations and over-reactions to which this Puritan nation is heir. The Dominican civil war, which again finds United States Marines in Latin America under the slogan "No more Cubas," aggravates the problem. The domestic reverberations of foreign policy are too little noted. A common fallacy exists that our course in the world must be decided solely on the basis of external events, as though the consequences at home are irrelevant. That may have been plausible in a simpler, earher era. But the lessons of the cold war are to the contrary, as are the warnings of nuclear warfare and ICBMs. On the domestic front, ihe new McCarthyism is clearest in the ugly accusations of appeasement being ruled with gathering intensity by self-styled hardliners against those who urge alternative policies. .-^ flagrant example w^ a s Sen. Russell Long's appeaser-and-beatnik demagoguery last week before the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Long is second in command of the Democratic Senate majority. Also coming back in vogue are the conspiratorial theory of history and the illusion of -American omnipotence and omniscience. Pavlovian reflexes to the word "Communist" are being played on with increasing frequency by government sources and columinsts who know better. The State and Defense Departments have become so preoccupied with their domestic propaganda campaigns that they now play down the historic splintering of the Communist bloc during this decade. It is tragic that they are doing so little to exploit that disarray. Secretaries Dean Rusk and Robert McNamara have personally led the drive to stifle public discussion of their policies. Both have recurrently intimated that their critics are somehow less sensible and dedicated to the nation than they — less than 200 percent American, as it was put in the heyday of the late Senator from Wisconsin. The most marked difference between the old McCarthyism and the expolsive new climate overtaking the country is that this time important parts of the executive branch have joined, if not started, the chorus of abuse and the effort to smother debate. Among Washington officialdom, only President Johnson has said of late that he welcomes "honest, forthright discussion" of U.S. policy abroad. Unfortunately. instead of bringing about the national unity that the President seeks, the loaded semantics and propaganda distortions of some of his chief advisers and supporters in the press are only inflaming the divisiveness he wants to avoid. The country is now further from a consensus on foreign policy than it was just a few months ago. The ones who talk loudest about America's global responsibiUties are the first to indulge in the home-front irre- sponsibiUties of name-callmg, misstatements of fact and attempts to swamp debate. The recent gathering here of the nation's newspaper editors reflected widespread concern over the Administration's efforts to harass objective reporting on South Viet Nam. Now, Washington's lack of candor, then its shifting of ground about its Dominican intervention, can only aggravate the growing suspicion that U.S. officials are cutting corners on ihe truth when it suits their convenience. News management in the nation's capita! is currently more deliberate and sweeping than it ever was during World War II or the Korean period. Before the wellsprings of public discussions are further damaged or dried up, the Johns 0 n .-Administration urgently needs to recognized that there is no point in trying to win the world while doing irreparable injury here at home. 'Copyright, 1065, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Rubber band treatment helps heal hemorrhoids By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt Q — What do you thmk of the new treatment for hemorrhoids, in which the doctor places rubber bands tightly around them and tliey disappear in about a week? A — When properly applied this method is pamless and effective. It has been used successfully for bleeding as well as nonbleeding piles. Some persons get a recurrence of the hemorrhoids after having had them cut out. Although such persons often object to a second operation, it is not always possible to use the constricting rubber bands on them because of the presence of scar tissue. This method also cannot be used in the presence of infection, cancer in the area or anal fissures. Q — How important is tliat Pap test? My doctor says it isn't necessary to do it unless a tumor is present. .-\ — The whole purpose of the Pap test for cancer of the uterine cervix is to discover a malignant tumor before it can be detected in any other way. The only way to prevent needless deaths from cervical cancer is to find them before they have had a chance to spread and then to remove them completely. Specialists in women's diseases now advise a routine Pap test at least once a year for all women over 40. Q — My uterus was removed 6 months ago. I get terrible hot flashes day and night. My doctor has me taking one Pre- marin pill daily. Would these pills cause cancer or any bad that wild horses couldn't drag from him otherwise, the deadbeat would receive a small plastic toy auto. Although the FTC found this scheme deceptive, I think you will agree that it comes under the heading of creative thinking. In fact, the eternal battle of wits between the bill collector and the deadbeat seems to have all the elements—conflict, suspense, intrigue, etc. — of high drama. It might make a fine series for television. I have in mind a program called "Deadbeat." It features a handsome secret operator for a collection agency who is trying to track down a lovely young model who bought a fur- lined bikini on the installment plan and then defaulted on the payments. That toy auto could be the beginning of a beautiful romance. side effects? Are they habit forming? A — Premarin is a female hormone. In women in the menopause, whether natural or as in your case following operation, they help to relieve unpleasant symptoms. They are not habit- forming. If they make you feel better you can take them indefinitely. Such undesirable side effects as soreness of the breasts can be avoided by carefully regulating the dosage and by skipping the tablets every fourth week. Far from causing cancer, they may help lo prevent cancer of the breast. Q — My daughter, now 17. took radioactive iodine for an enlarged thyroid about 7 years ago. When she marries what are the chances that her children will be normal? A — The radioactivity in iodine is completely dissipated within a few weeks. Furthermore, it tends to concentrate in the thyroid, net in the ovaries. Your daughter has, therefore, nothing to worry about on this score. One Minute Pulpit Jesus said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were amazed at him.— Mark 12:17. As we take Just and full measure of all authority, let neither time nor the times press us so hard to render unto Caesar the things which are Ceasar's that we neglect to render unto God the things that are God's.— A.
