Page 24 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MAY 6, 1965 Worrying about problems is the all-American pastime We met an excitable gentlemen the other day who opened the conversation by deploring racial strife. In 20 seconds he was racing through unrest on the campus. Viet Nam was giving him the jitters. And he felt rather sure that the bomb would be dropped any day now. It was apparent that he would not need to wait for Doomsday. Doomsday had already arrived. While he must be regai'ded as an extreme case, there are many who feel that the whole world has come unscrewed. They are prone to chronic worry. Only a fool would say that we are now living in the Best Possible of All Possible Worlds and everything will come out all right if you just keep your chin up and smile. Still, in looking at this unscrewed world of ours, a certain amount of alarm is subject to a heavy discount by reason of the conditions and attitudes of our day. We have become a problem-oriented people by an evolutionary process. If one problem is solved and disappears, few people notice it because another one takes its place. One reason this has become The Era of the Worry Wart is the growth of behavioral sciences. They are devoted to worrying about things that people never worried about before in depth. Sigmund Freud struck almost a whole new vein with psychoanalysis. The contribution of this science is typified by the cliche about the psychiatrist who, greeted by a friend's "Good Morning, Doctor", walks away muttering: "I wonder what he meant by that?" Sociology is a more recent inventi9n. As psychoanalysis can make you an expert in worrying about what bugs you personally, sociology gives you rich material for worrying about the pathology of the society in which you live. Subjects that were capable of limited discussion in the past can now be developed endlessly — the cause and cure of poverty. Marriage and divorce. Juvenile delinquency. Crime. Sexual misbehavior. Another reason that worry has become such a full time occupation in the modern day is that so much communication is now problem- oriented. Newspapers used to stop with the editorial column. Some now have a stable of 12 columnists. Radio can be listened to in your automobile between job and home. Television keeps it going with news, interviews with public figures, and hour-long "specials". Some magazines are filled with problem ai'- ticles from first to last page. In this country we started out with the Revolutionary War, engaged in a bloody Civil War, participated in two World Wars, endured financial panics and a prolonged depression, and have known earthquakes, fires, floods, hurricanes and tornadoes without end. There may be more great problems in 1965 lhan ever befoi-e in the history of this country. But are there really? Haven't there always been disasters, crises, ominous dangers, wrongs-to-be-righted, and threats to our security? If so, this is not really Doomsday. We merely tend to let ourselves think that it is. We might even conclude that many people never had it so good, which gives them more time than ever to worry about how bad things are. It's bug eat bug Although as august a body as the agriculture subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee of the United States House of Representatives has declared that the warnings about the dangers of pesticides in Rachel Carson's book "Silent Spring" were highly overstated, householders should not rush to drench their lawns and shrubs and gardens in chemicals. Entomologists caution that the bug situation in the yard should first be sui-veyed to see if beneficial insects are present in sufficient numbers to keep the populations of common pests such as aphids, or "plant lice," below damaging levels. Enemies of aphids include lady bugs, green or golden-eye lacewings and parasitic wasps. Chemicals applied to shrubs harboring aphids can also kill these beneficial insects. Time enough to use pesticides when it becomes apparent that aphids are not being controlled by their natural enemies. And then the label instructions on the chemicals should be followed exactly. The Newsreel Cousin Fuseloyle is enraptured by the prospects of supersonic flight. The promise is that if you board the plane at cocktail time and fly west it will always be cocktail time. A young tourist, returned from Washington, reports excitedly that she saw one supreme court justice, three senators and five beatniks. A United States senator, making a public an- Jiouncement of his financial affairs, says he lives on his salary. Isn't there something almost un-American about this? With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore In a letter to the Facts, Monday, Daniel A. Larsen wrote: . . Redlands is one of the few cities in Southern California where a motorist does not need to use the city streets to arrive at another destination. . . . Our traffic is limited primarily to Redlands residents." Mr. Larsen made the observation following a visit to Anaheim. The significance of his remark becomes clearer if you look at a detailed street map of the Orange county cities, and then contrast that with Redlands. What you see on the map is this: 1. Various cities have expanded until there is no separation between them. FuUerton, Anaheim, Garden Grove and Buena Park merge into a single mass. 2. Those four cities share a common, checkerboard pattern of streets. Lincoln is a main street in Garden Grove and Anaheim. Orangethorpe is a main drag in Buena Park and Fullerton. 3. Travel between city centers —and there is a great deal of it — is on these common city streets. 4. To drive from Anaheim to La Habra you pass through Fullerton on FuUerton city streets. This is typical, although the developing freeway system will lessen such journeys. Then, strike the contrast with Redlands: 1. Our town does not merge with any other municipality. Orange groves still form belts between Redlands and L o m a Linda: Redlands and Mentone. The Cratton Hills wall off the Yucaipa Valley. 2. Our checkerboard cuts off at the bank of the Santa Ana Wash, Orange street being the single exception. To the south, San Timoteo canyon abruptly cuts off the city street pattern. Only Alessandro road and Fern avenue have extensions down into it. Our street pattern does continue westward into the Mission district and eastward into Men- lone and Crafton. But in both directions, only the primary streets continue. Barton road and Redlands boulevard are the only important (non-freeway) carriers to the west, and Lu- gonia avenue to the east. 3. Travel between city centers is primarily Redlands-San Bernardino and this is done mostly on the freeway. 4. Most of the traffic passing through Redlands is on the freeway. The main exceptions are State Highway 38 on Lugonia avenue going to Mentone and the mountains, and Orange street to Highland. Why then is Redlands so different from Anaheim? It all boils down to a simple, geographic fact. Where the ground is flat, fertile and inviting, neighboring cities in Southern California expand outwards from their centers until their developed areas meet — or, they will eventually. Where natural barriers exist, they will always give some separation, one town from the next. Terrain barriers will also confine the street pattern within a city. Here, then, is Mr. Larsen's point. San Mateo, Center, and Ca- Jon will never reach to some future town to the south of us because they are forever blocked by San Timoteo canyon. Texas, Church, Judson and Wabash will not be developed northward because of the Santa Ana Wash. Furthermore, the Tennessee Street Freeway, when built, will lessen the present traffic on North Orange. Although Redlands and Loma Lmda will merge someday, the freeway, Redlands boulevard and Barton road will be the main routes. Lugonia avenue to Mentone will probably have to be relieved by a freeway. In city planning the meaning is that Redlands streets will Oh Well, Every Little Bit Helps U.S. challenqr - i double standard Redlands Yesterdays FIVE YEARS AGO Temperatures — Highest 92, lowest 48. Pace of swimming pool construction, 21 since January, indicates record number of pools may be built in Redlands this year. Citrus growers in area just west of Redlands and north of Highway 99 take steps toward gaining zoning protection from trailer parks or any other de- development wliich would encroach on farming activity. Kyle Pratt, Redlands High school senior, named editor-in- chief of tlie Hobachi student newspaper for 1960-61 school year. TEN YEARS AGO Temperatures — Highest 65, lowest 49. Numerous individuals suggest a street corner poll on the Redlands freeway routing. George P. St. Pierre nominated as commander of American Legion Post 106. Hugh Folkins, Robert Knight, W. A. Sanburn and Eari Wilmer elected trustees of the Fir?t Methodist church. FIFTEEN YEARS AGO Temperatures — Highest 73, lowest 40. W. Earl Bandy appointed city recreation director by City Council. Rep. Richard Nixon speaks to crowd of some 300 Redlanders at the Triangle in his campaign for seat in the U.S. Senate. Chamber of Commerce stadium drive hits 824,000 and UR trustees agree to start construction on the first 2,500 seats as soon as possible. One Minute Pulpit The sound of a carefree multitude was with her; and with men of the common sort drunkards were brought from the wilderness; and they put bracelets upon the hands of the women, and beautiful crowns upon their heads.—Ezekiel 23:42. God must have loved the common people; he made so many of them.—Abraham Lincoln. serve primarily traffic moving within the city. We are not going to be engulfed in a surrounding sea of cities, each as big or bigger than our own.

WASHINGTON (UPI)Friends, if you happen to have an old lame grandmother who likes to drink and gadabout in foreign countries, ask yourself this question: Would you like to see her hobbling down the gangplank of an ocean liner, her frail, feeble frame bending low under the burden of a gallon of hooch? Well, then, I would advise you to take heed of a matter that came before the House Ways & Means Committee this week. The point at issue is whether American tourists should have to lug their duty-free liquor along with -them when they return from a trip abroad. Jlost world travelers, as you may know, generally pick up a few bottles of the hard stuff while overseas. That way they avoid paying taxes on it. Which cuts the price about in half. .•\t present, up to a gallon of By WILLIAltf S. WHITE WASHINGTON — Something more than the defeat of another Communist probe in this hemisphere, fatefuHy important as this is, has been accomplished by the decisive military action of the United States against planned anarchy in the Dominican Republic. For the first time, Washington has honestly and effectively challenged the perilous hypocrisy of a double standard in the matter of "nonintervention" hi Latin affairs. The doctrine on nonintervention originally and rightly rejected any idea of gunboat Yankee interference, on the model of half a lifetime ago, in the affairs of countries to the south. International communism, however, had long perverted this, as it has perverted so many other decent concepts, so that oblique Communist subversion in this hemisphere—as in Castro Cuba—was never, never, "intervention." Any effort by the United States to halt these creeping advances of Communist imperiaUsm became, by the same mad process of doublethink, the only kind of "intervention" there ever could be. Q. What is intervention? A. Why, it is when the United States tries to prevent the destruction of a government in this hemisphere by outside Communist states operating through locally placed stooges and gunmen. This has been the absurd and evil gospel of an absurd and evil time in history; it is the gospel no more. The plain truth is that the real interventors in the Dominican Republic were hard-core Communists, who were preparing there the same sort of phony "war of liberation" which we are resisting in South Viet Nam. It was they who systematically took over the rebellious forces in Santo Domingo. These are the facts. Of course, some of the same quarters here at home which find innumerable excuses for the Communist invaders of South Viet Nam and innumerable hair-splitting shortcomings in the American position there are now doing exactly the same thing as to the Dominican Re- pubUc. It is standard operating procedure; we must just get used to it. this bargain booze may be transported back to the United States free of duty. They may either bring it back with them or have it shipped home. Since a gallon of whisky can get pretty heavy if carried for any length of time, many elect to entrust the cargo to a shipper. Recently, however, the administration sent Congress a bill to change this arrangement. It would eliminate the duty-free allowance unless the returning traveller had the sauce in his possession. The theory is that such a measure would discourage overseas purchases, thus curbing the outflow of dollars and improving America's balance- of-payments position. But when the Ways & Means Committee began hearmgs on the proposal, Paul A. Porter, a distinguished Washington attorney, was on hand to register a The plain truth is that the United States "intervened" to strangle at birth another Cuban- model conspiracy. It "intervened" at the only point in which in simple common sense the thing must be done—that is, before the conspirators had time to consohdate their power and present the free world with an accomplished tragedy. The plain truth is that those who have troubled to look reality in the face know all this perfectly well. It is not, therefore, a pretty picture which has been unfolding inside Washington in recent days. In the name of "nonintervention" some Lat- in-.'^merican powers have been screaming at us—in public—for the rude, rude way in which wa have dared to act for the security of all this hemisphere, not excluding the security of their own countries. But in private they have been saying to our people: "Thank God you went in in time." Of course, we also are getting a little more or less concealed flak from some people in the other Western and allied powers. This is not solely because bear-baiting the big fellow who must carry the burden of all the West is a fairly common temptation—as well as an unhappy illustration of one small aspect of human nature. It is also because the United States has long fought "colonialism"—too soon and too much, sometimes, in this columnist's opinion, but fought it just the same. Thus some of the e:i-colonial powers point a finger and say: "Ah, hah, you people are colonialists, too." This is mere rubbish without a chemical trace of justification. Still, it makes some of the other Western fellows feel bel­ ter. And this, too. is one of the pains of power and responsibility: The nation that carries the real weight alone must not only lift smaller powers onto its back but must also allow them to bite that weary back as well. National frustrations and petty envies these days are not purged on the psychiatric cough; they are worked off on the tired frame of old Uncle Sam.

Can it be cured? .•\—Peritonitis is an inflama- mation of the inner wall of the abdominal cavity. The commonest causes are rupture of the appendix or of a peptic ulcer. 11 may also follow a gunshot or stab wound of the abdomen or it may occur by extension from a liver abscess or abscess of the uterme tubes. The victim has a severe pain which may be diffused throughout the abdomen or localized in a small area. The pain is aggravated by movement or pressure. There is fever and the victim's breathing is rapid and shallow in order to minimize the pain. The treatment usually involves opening the abdomen, Teletips TOP SHO\V:-10:00. Chan. 9. Special '65.

"No doubt," Porter conjectured, "the average tourist will still be prepared to struggle back, despite the inconvenience, with his gallon of duty­ free liquor, for the sake of the eventual solace it will bring him. "But," he pointed out, "the elderly and the lame will not be able to take on the burden of extra luggage so easily." In effect, he said. Congress would be telling them that "it you aren't fit enough to carry it back yourself, you don't deserve to have it at aU." Porter, I hasten to add, did not say this simply because he believes in being kind to old ladies. He was representing a group of companies that specialize in selling and shipping duty-free liquor. Nevertheless, the point he made retains its validity. Poor old granny would be getting her nightly noggin of discount spirits the hard way. slopping the leak, flushing out the abdominal cavity and giving massive doses of antibiotics. Fluids by vein and blood transfusions are also often necessary. With prompt treatment recovery is to be e.\pected. Q—What is meant by milk leg? Is it the same as edema? What causes it and what can be done for it? A—Milk leg is an inflamation of the deep veins of tlie thigh and leg, usually on one side only. It is a phlebitis that comes on 10 to 14 days after childbirth or shortly after the milk comes into the breasts. The first manifestation is pain along the course of tlie involved vein. As the vein becomes plugged by the formation of clots, edema or waterlogging occurs. Milk leg may be caused by previously existing varicose veins, infection, or too long a period of bed rest following delivery. Dextran, anticoagulants and clot-dissolving drugs are used in the treatment. Smokmg should be avoided because it constricts the blood vessels. An elastic stocking or elastic band-. age may have to be worn for a while. Q—Ever since I had my second baby 2''i years ago I have had a feeling of nausea wlien- ever I go into a store. My doctor says it's all in my head. What do you tliink? A—Persistent nausea is often caused by anemia, cirrhosis of the liver and chronic low-grada colitis. Even through your doctor may have ruled out these and other possible organic causes, this does not necessarily mean it is aU in your head. Emotional tension may, however, be a factor.
