Page 10 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MAY 8, 1965 From the Cow Counties — concern for the cities Under the "one man, one vote" edict of the U.S. Supreme Court, the 30-year-old framework of the California Senate is now being lorn down. In its place the Legislature must erect a new structure according to the model decreed by Chief Justice Warren. In light of recent events in tlie Legislature, a skeptic may wonder if the Warren doctrine squares with certain realities. Let's note two of them—smog and senate reapportionment. Smog is the plague of the cities but not of the Cow Counties. Under the Warren doctrine, it is supposed that the problems of the populous cities will not be solved if the Legislature is balanced, the cities dominating the Assembly and the Cow Counties the Senate. No, says Chief Jus- lice Warren, the cities must control the entire legislature. If his assumption were valid, the Assembly would be following a hard line on the auto- smog legislation and the Senate would be soft. Actually, the situation is the other way around. The author of the bill which will revise the existing laws is Senator Randolph Collier. He represents Siskiyou and Del Norte counties, up against the Oregon border. They are sparsely inhabited, with no town larger than oWi^somewhafwoodwUerritory" 5,000 inhabitants. Collier pushed the bill through the Senate, keeping the regulations as tough as he could. Now his bill is over on the Assembly side. The Transportation committee watered it down a bit Thursday. The bill still has to run the gantlet of the Assembly Ways and Means committee and of a floor vote. But as of today, it is the Senate that is facing up to the smog problems of the city—and not the city-dominated Assembly. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore When Bill WeaUierwax of Redlands and Louis Guyomard of Morroco get together here on May 16, it will be different. Now BLU is the manager of the Redlands Heights packing house on Texas street. Guyomard is a member of a French zone citrus delegation which is coming to Southern California to see how we do things here. Their first meeting was quite another story. During May 1944. American airplanes by tliousands were flying out of England to bomb rail centers and industrial targets in occupied France and in Germany. co-pilot of a Flying Fortress. Bill was about 75 miles cast of Paris on May 29 when the B-17 was shot down. He wound up at a French farm liouse at Orbais L Abbaye (church in the valley) and was a guest there for six weeks. The family consisted of a mother, her middle-aged daughter and a son. They were hospitable to the American airmen and members of the underground, although the Germans came around weekly to take most of their produce from them. The night of July 10 proved to be a busy one for tlie underground. From England tlie O.S.S. dispatched an airplane with eight paratroopers. Since the drop had to be made in darliness and Make Mother's Day a Daily Habit The Federal Court requirement that the Senate reapportion itself into districts of roughly equal population would seem to be politically impossible. The adoption of the re-districting bill would force many Cow County Senators out of the jobs they now hold, and, by election, bring in a new crop of replacements from the cities. Yet, the Senate is going to come to a vote on the reapportionment bill Monday. Unless the balance changes over the week-end, the leadership has the votes to put it through. It is true, of course, that a very important amendment was proposed by Senator Thomas M. Recs of populous Los Angeles County, and apiiro\'ed by the Senate Thursday. This would c'tu-ve Los Angeles county up into 12 Senator- i,=!l districts, each represented by one senator. Without amendment, the Teale bill would have provided for 12 senators, each representing all of Los Angeles county. What will happen to this bill when il gets over on the Assembly side remains to be .seen. In any case, the Senate has demonstrated that it is responsible to all of the people of California. To a great extent the capability of a legislature depends upon the quality of its leadership. The giants are sometimes products of Ihe cities and sometimes of the Cow Counties. This fact is dismissed by the Warren doctrine. Men are to be judged by how many voters reside in their bailiwicks, not by performance. That is the "one man, one vote" rule in which we do not believe, nor did Earl Warren when he was Governor of California. Corned beef in orbit For slipping an unauthorized corned beef sandwich aboard the spaceship Molly Brown on the most recent space flight, astronaut John Young was rebuked by James Webb, Ihe space chief. This came out in testimony Wednesday when Webb was before the House Appropriations Committee. Webb is barking up the wrong tree. One of the characteristics of the most successfully adventurous men is that they are prone to retain some small decisions to themselves no matter how ironclad the rules arc supposed to be. In writing about the conquest of Ml. Everest, the British leader noted that when the highest camp is reached one of the climbers invai'iably produces something from his knapsack that just wasn't supposed to be there. It might be a pair of slippers, or, as in Young's case, something to eat. Experienced mountain leaders know that this quirk is built into the character of their best climbers. They resign themselves to it. Maybe what really irks Webb is that the high priests of spaceology were debunked by a simple prank. They were making a big deal out of food. Didn't they used to say that the only way an asti-onaut could eat in a state of weightlessness was from a squeeze tube? Yet, Gus Grissom ate Young's sandwich—and survived. The Newsreel Do fish go around bragging to one another about the size of the fisherman they got away from? A new oven which is said to dean itself sounds like a boon for the housewife. Now if .somebody would just develop a child that did tlie same thing. quite a number of the men got hung up in trees. The French had to move fast to rescue the men and having done that, to go back and get the tell-tale pai-achutes out of the trees. Not only did the new arrivals make the farm an unduly populous spot. One of tliem, Guyomard, had brought a radio transmitter and would be keeping in contact with Intelligence back in London. During the few days that Bill remained on the farm, he came to know that Guyomard had escaped from liis native France to England, had jomed up with the Americans and was a second lieutenant. Since it was quite possible that tlie radio transmitter might attract the attention of the Germans, Bill decided that it was time for him to move out into tlie nearby forest and to live with the underground. Altliough this has the sound of liigh adventure, Bill speaks lightly of it. The invading Allied Armies w'ere giving the Germans more than they could handle. They had no time to go chasing around in the woods to round up individual airmen and others who were living tliere. ".'\fter all, we weren't giving them any real trouble," Bill explains. The woods gave iilenty of cover to hide in and one morning, from a rise, he could see 21 different columns of smoke rising fi"om scattered camp fires —an indication of the mmierous men who were living there. On September 21. the American troops arrived and for a few days, Bill again saw Guyomard. But that proved to be the last time. Nor did he communicate with him during the intervening two decades. He has, however, written periodically to the French family at Orbais L Abbaye. Through tliem contact was re-established by Guyomard in anticipation of his forthcoming visit to CaUtornia. Before arriving here, his recollections of 1944 will be refreshed. At New York, his first spot in the U.S., he will stay with M. E. Oesterle. "He was a paratrooper, too." Guyomard wrote to BiU. "We were together in England." ADOLF'S LAST DAY HOLLYWOOD (UP!) — 20th Century-Fox announced it will film the last day of Hitler's life in "The Last 24 Hours."

Not for the view. Just to escape from Alice in Wonderland-by-the-Bay. What did it was sitting in with i\Iartin Meyerson. Maybe I shouldn't use that expression. He's the acting chancellor of the University of California campus here, the one you may have read something about lately, and what I mean is that I was sitting in his office. In case we are interrupted, let me say right now that Meyerson, for my taxpayer's dollar, has been acting with superb intellectual calm and personal courage in a situation which for him can only be as personally rewarding as lying down in the middle of a freeway at 5:05 p.m. While you may not be just ecstatic yet about the state of affairs at Berkeley, Meyerson has won a few rounds lately. All he has to do is make friends out of 27,000 students and about 2.000 professors, who among them have 29,000 different ideas on how he should run the campus. A student committee had just made an earnest presentation in Meyerson's office during which they asserted that the university had no right of discipline and only the courts were entitled to adjudicate their offenses. There was a lot of talk abo\it due process and double jeopardy, and these students were telling the chancellor all about it. What they really wanted him to do, I got the impression, was keep the campus sw-ept up and the blackboards washed. They could take care of the rest. Meyerson's office has a round table and some soft deep chairs and a couch. AU this chivah'ous conversation was taking place around the round table. After a while, to keep from getting into the act and saying what I thought Meyerson should do to run the campus, I got up and walked around his office. On one wall I found some prints that Meyerson's secretary later told me had been hung years ago. Obviously nobody has looked at them lately. They w-ere excerpts from Blackstone about the transfer of civil jurisdiction over students from the king's courts to the chancellor's courts at Oxford and Cambridge. As I recall my history, that happened six or seven centuries ago, and has been hailed down through the years as a milestone in academic liberation. What that did was take away from the king the right to send his men on campus and arrest •Students, and give that power to the university chancellor, who in those days was a chap more often to be trusted than his royal highness. All I'd been hearing for the last hour in the office of the chancellor of the University of California w^as an ungraceful demand, by some students who fancied themselves to be avant garde intellectuals, to turn back history by six or seven centuries. These days, men like Meyerson, who seek to retain some discipline, are considered depots by a lot of students and professors. "In this permissive generation," President Clark Kerr said the other day, "all authority is suspect." I walked out of the chancellor's office and over to the base of the Campanile and paid my dime and rode up to where it was quiet and I could look down on Ahce in Wonderland-by-the- Bay without having to listen to it. It is better that way these days. "What makes this an strange," Meyerson told me, "is that as university professors go, I'm conservative. "Some alumni were in to see me not long ago and they demanded I expel all the students who were involved in the sit-in last December. I asked them if they were willing to risk losing half the faculty—the better half, the ones who have standing offers to go somewhere else — which is about what would happen. They went away saying they'd think that one over. Savio has stepped offstage and now Bettina Aptheker, daughter of a U.S. Communist historian, seems to be the spokesman for the student group which is talking of organizing on a trade-union pattern so they can call strikes against the university. They find the new code of discipline proposed by the Meyer Committee unacceptable. This code is the result of a four- month study by a regents' committee headed by Theodore Meyer, with minor changes, is almost certain to win approval of the regents at their next session in Riverside on May 21, "There's more unanimous agreement among the regents over the i\Icyer report than on anything in months," one regent told me. It is the regents who are calling the shots these days for the University of California, and my informal survey among several of them, who asked that they not be quoted, shows why. Both pro-Kcrr and anti-Kcrr factions among the regents expect a showdown vote at their June 18 meeting in San Francisco on whether Kerr will remain as president of the university. Just now, the regents are almost equally divided on Kerr. There is a list of three men, on campuses outside California, who have been aji- proached by some of the regents as possible successors to Kerr. The availabiUty of a man acceptable to a majority of the regents is hkely to determine Kerr's fate. The man most frequently mentioned. Chancellor Franklin i\Iurphy at the University of California at Los Angeles, seems to have convinced the regents that he simply does not want the job. He believes university campuses should have more independence from the state administration, and to a man in favor of decentralization, the presidency would be a philosophical dead-end. Meyerson has indicated he wants to return next fall to his post as dean of the college of environmental design. A faculty committee, at the request of the regents, is sifting through a list of 36 names to come up with recommendations for a permanent chancellor at Berkeley. That Latest Best Seller By Arthur Benjamin Anderson THE ALMANAC Today is Saturday. May 8, the 128th day of 1965 with 237 to follow. The moon is in its first quarter. The morning star is Saturn. The evening star is Mars. Former President Truman was bom on this day in 1884. On this day in history: In 1541, Hernando De Soto and a company of Spanish explorers discovered tlie Mississippi River. In 1879, George Selden of Rochester, N. Y., filed papers for the first automobile patent. It was granted in 1895. In 1945, President Truman announced the end of the war in Europe and this date become the official "VE" Day. In 1958, 'Vice President Nixon touring South America was stoned and spat upon by leftist students in Lima, Peru. .A thought for the day: .Author Nathaniel Hawthorne said: "Mountains are the earth's un- decaying monuments." 'DAD' WINTERS HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Jonathan Winters ^vill play the title role of Dad in "Oh Dad, Poor Dad, etc." This w'eek it's "Meriwether Lewis," a biography by Richard Dillon. Thomas Jefferson was so fascinated by the idea of sending an exploring expedition up into the American Northwest that he began contacting possible leaders for such an expedition long before he became President and negotiated the famous Louisiana Purchase. WTiile Minister to France in 1786 Jefferson contacted a possible leader named Jolm Ledyard. Ledyard. an adventurer, promptly set off walking through Russia, aiming to cross into Alaska by ship at the Bering Sea—! Catherine the Great had him arrested and deported. Jefferson's final choice was as excellent as his first choice had been weird. He chose Meriwether Lewis, able son of an aristrocratic neighbor in Virginia. Lewis was a natural leader and an experienced woodsman. In fact, Jefferson thought so highly of him that he engaged him as his private secretary during his first few years in the White House. The Lewis and Clark expedition into the Pacific Northwest was an extraordinary accomplishment. It was begun in 1804. In a little over two years, Lewis and his party of forty men descended the Ohio by boat to the Mississippi, went up the Mississippi to the Missouri, up the Missouri to the Rocky Mountains, portaged across the Rock ies to a tributary of the Columbia River, managed a wild trip by canoe through rushmg rapids to the Columbia iteslf — and finally reached the Pacific Ocean. And then the entire party went back th eway they came! On the trip up the Missouri the boats had to be poled, or dragged with a line from the bank. The Missouri is. a vast mass of water coursing through the soft sands and muds of the High Plains. It is forever changing its course, tearing down its banks. Hairbreadth escapes from drowTiing were daily occurrences. Indians were a constant danger. The Sioux finally decided (0 exterminate the party. But by the time the gathering of chiefs had taken place, the expedition was far enough up .tlie Missoiu-i to discourage pursuit. Grizzly bears were plentiful, — huge, ferocious, incredibly hard to kUl. They would continue to fight and pursue after bemg hit by bullet after bullet. On one occasion Lewis, attacked by a grizzly while without his gun. survived only because — on this one occasion! — the bear suddenly turned and ran. Stranger than fictJ.on is the story of Sacajawea, young Indian wife of one of the scouts. She carried a papoose on her back, literally saved the expedition at one crucial pomt when a Shoshone chief discovered she was his long-lost sister —! (Lewis desperately needed horses for portaging, was given them by the Shoshone chief.) This re-telling of the story o£ the Lewis and Clark expedition, too detailed for the general reader, will be of interest principally to students of American liistory.
