2-Mon., May 10, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts Dominican rebels shell U.S. posifions in city (Continued from Page 1) mortar shells landing within 100 yards of U.S. Marine Corps headquarters near the U. S. Embassy, the sources said. It was the first time the rebels had used mortar fire against the American forces. In the only previously reported incident, the rebels used mortar fire to batter down the walls of the Ozama fortress in downtown Santo Domingo to overwhelm 200 police troops resisting there. There were no casualties in the mortar fire attack which took place at dusk Simday night. One round knocked over a tree 25 yards from a sentry post. The other landed nearby in a school yard being used as a U.S. military headquarters. .•\merican spokesmen did not indicate w^hether they knew where the mortars were em- placed, or whether they planned any action to knock them out of action. The new attacks came as rebel forces pondered an ultimatum by the new Dominican civil-military junta calling on them to surrender or face all- out attack. Their military command had previously indicated there could be no meeting of minds between the two groups struggling for power. The five-man junta, headed by Maj. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barrera, Sunday "retired" eight top-ranking officers from the Dominican Republic's armed forces in a move to win public support of the new regime. Imbert urged the rebels, believed led by "provisional president" Col. Francisco Caamano Deno, to lay down their arms peacefully. He said they would be well-treated and given safe conduct out of the country. Would Launch Offensive If they refuse, Imbert declared, his forces would launch an offensive to capture the rebel-held section of Santo Do mingo. "We are delaying all we can," he said. "We want to do the best we can without shed- ing more blood." Thirteen Americans have been killed and 76 wounded since forces loyal to exiled President Juan Bosch began the revolt April 24. Late Sunday, three American Navy men were released unharmed by the rebels. They had been captured Friday afternoon but were turned over to U.S. officials after negotiations with local Peace Corps Director Robert Satin. The three were Petty Officer 2-C Donald Martin of Wichita, Kan.; Chief Petty Officer Ellard Dana of Virginia Beach, V'a., and Storekeeper Michael Monk, whose hometown was not immediately made available. A U.S. Marine was wounded Sunday by sniper fire. He was the only American casualty during the day. Some 21.000 U.S. Marines, Army paratroopers and Navy men are on duty here. Imbert said his new government had removed from power seven generals and one naval commander—six of whom immediately left the country and two who were allowed to remain as "simply citizens." The United States in a show of force moved a row of 106 mm. Howitzers in front of the Hotel Embajador, which serves as the U.S. military command post. The move came as Imbert was delivering his ultimatum to the rebel forces, but American officials gave no explanation of the hardware buildup. Imbert's announcement of the military purge gave no indication of the fate of Maj. Gen. Elias Wessin y Wessin, who had been commanding forces fighting the rebels. It was believed the change of command also was aimed at peace arrangements with Caamano, a longtime aide of the ousted Bosch. Caamano Friday criticized "corrupt generals" he said were leading the Dominican forces and singled out Wessin in particular. Senate leaders say fox amendment to fail poll (Continued from Page 1) would help provide backing for expanded world trade. Reform: A joint House-Senate committee opens hearings on ways to improve tlie organization and operation of Congress. Sen. Joseph S. Clark, D-Pa.. easily the leading champion of •congressional reform, was to be the first witness. Persecution: Rep. Benjamin S. Rosenthal, D-N.Y., told a House foreign affairs subcommittee that Congress should express its "outrage" at what he said was the Kremlin's perse cution of Russian Jews. Rosenthal accused the Soviet goveni inent of "subtle and persistent cultural starvation" of its Jews. The subcommittee began hearings on a resohition, sponsored by 143 House members, that would put Congress on record condemning the Russian government's alleged persecution of Soviet Jews. Hospital Care: The Senate Finance Committee continues hearings on the administration's hospital care program under Social Security for per sons ovei- Uie age of 65. The House has approved the proposal, along with a voluntary insurance program to cover doctor bills, and a 7 per cent increase in retirement payments. Air Pollution: The Senate public works air & water pollution subcommittee meets in closed session to work on a clean air act. President Johnson wants increased federal au- tliority to investigate potential pollution sources and to launch a full-scale attack on automobile and ti-uck exhaust fumes. No legislation has been submitted yet. Policy: Problems of national security policy liave grouTi too complicated for any one man to know all that goes on, and the result is an "absence of a clean sense of direction and coherence of policy at the top of the government." Tins criticism was voiced over the weekend in a staff memorandum prepared for a special government opera tions subcommittee. Chairman Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash., announced the subcommittee will hold public hearuigs this month and next "to take a frank and impartial look at America's number one problem—^the coin- duct of national security policy." FincK may run for lieutenant governor LOS ANGELES (UPD— Robert H. Finch, campaign manager for former Vice President Richard M. Nixon in 1960 and Sen. George Murphy, R-Ca.'if.. in 1964, may run for lieutenant governor next year. Finch was awaiting responses today from some 12.000 Californians. mostly Republican leaders, to a letter he sent them asking for an appraisal of his chances. "My candidacy would aim to unify our party — not split it," Finch said. "I will not attack my fellow Republicans." Finch said he would be able to devote a full year to campaigning if his prospective candidacy is favorably received. Pianist Horowitz Returns To Concert Stage With "Smashing Triumph" NEW YORK (UPD—The thundering ovations and quiet tears of a Carnegie Hall audience made the master's edict unnec- cessary. World-renowned pianist Vladimir Horowitz had asked that no one be allowed backstage following his first public recital in 12 years. "I don't want anyone to tell me how I played," he said. "I know." His performance Sunday after a dozen years of self-imposed exile from the concert stage was regarded as a smashing triumph. A new generation of music lovers—some of whom queued up for two days to get standing room tickets—heart Horowitz in person for the first time and discovered a new zenith in piano artistry. Tall, elegant and still dark- haired at 61, Horowitz showed that his long-renowned keyboard mastery had not suffered during his seclusion but rather had attained vital maturity. The consensus of those in the capacity audience who had knoTO him as one of the world's greatest musicians for a quarter of a century was that he is now in a class by himself. During the mysterious years of his retirement, broken only by an occasional recording, he has moved deeper toward the heart of his art. He brings to the keyboard technical prowess, sensitivity and a luminous purity of tone that few pianists—if any—can hope to achieve. Stafe official ties Wirtz wif li organized labor SACRAMENTO (UPD — The State Board of Agriculture today voiced a "suspicion" that U.S. Labor Secretary W. WUlard Wirtz was using California's farm worker shortage for the benefit of organized labor. During a general discussion of the shortage, created by a congressional refusal last year to extend the Mexican worker importation law, board member Leo J. Giobetti said there was a "great suspicion" among California farmers that Wirtz was using the labor shortage "to organize California agriculture." I question whether he (Wirtz) is acting in good faith. I wonder if organized labor has the ear of the secretary of labor," Giobetti said. Spokesmen for organized la bor have asked Wirtz not to allow widespread importation of Mexican workers under provisions of public law 414, the National Immigration Act. They contend that there are enough domestic workers to handle farm work, if growers will pay higher wages. Giobetti's remarks, which met with general board approval, followed a report from member John J. Kovacevich, who complained of a week-old strike affecting grape growers in the Coachella Valley. "(Joons are chasing men out of the fields," he said, "The crews are just afraid to go out there and work." Previously, the Department of Employment presented statis tics to the board showing that California's farm labor force is nmning about four per cent smaller than last year. In its monthly report to the state Board of Agriculture, the department said that agricultural employment at the beginning of May totaled 294,000, down 12, 700 from the same time last last year. Employment of domestic workers was up 12,700 from last year, but the rise was more than offset by the absence of 23,100 foreign workers who were employed m 1964. . "Except for 20 Filippinos, all of the 200 contract foreign workers this year were Japanese na Uonals working in the Salinas Valley strawberry harvest and in Coachella Valley date activities." the report said.

Local Aerospace Wives Coffee pouy's POINTERS By Polly Cramer ccietif msS JOSEPHINE RE.4Y Society Editor DEAR POLLY—After I wash my untreated dust mops I first| use them to go over the ceilings and corners of the various rooms in the house. This removes any embarrassmg cobwebs from sneaking up on me. —JULIE GIRLS — Do be careful to brush only the cobwebs. Too heavy a hand on the dust mop might smear the celling or wfalls.—POLLY DEAR POLLY — This is hard to believe but it really works. Pour tomato catsup on the copper bottoms of pans and just watch the tarnish disappear.— M. F. C. DEAR POLLY — My Pointer relieves needless anxiety after an important item or paper has been mailed. I have found that by inserting a sheet of paper (the size of the mailing envelope) and the same size carbon paper inside the envelope before addressing (or making notations), a duplicate of the exact "From" and "To" addresses will be made. I keep this with all pertinent papers until I receive an acknowledgment from the recipient. If there is too long a delay I can check back to learn if I misdirected the envelope.—HELEN DEAR POLLY — I am a den mother always on the lookout tor ideas for things the boys can make. We have found making "meter minders" one of our best projects. Use plastic pill containers with snap on lids. Punch or drill two small holes in each lid and insert a key chain through the holes in the top. The following poem is typed and the paper placed in a bottle with the printed side out. Keep me filled with nickles Keep me filled with nickles And you will never be stuck When you pull up at a meter With no change but half a buck. The container is filled with nickels and hung over the automobile direction signal lever or gear shift so it is handy. The key rings were given us by the telephone company. — MRS. K. K. K. We, the Women By Ruth Millet! The only thing wrong with American men is that too mans of them are married, a British newspaper columnist (a woman) recently observed after castmg a calculatmg eye on the American male. What the columnist overlooked is that some credit goes to American wives for the (act that American men are so nice to have around. They catch them young—and start right in to improve them. Is the young husband ill- equipped to succeed in today's world? His wife will take care of that by urging him to get more education while she cheerfully supports him. Does the young man know little and care less about music, painting and literature? If his wife is mterested in these thmgs she will soon have him going to concerts and art e.xhibits and reading the books she brings home from the library. Is the young husband ill at ease socially? He won't be for long if his wife is socially m- clined. She will ease him along until he becomes a' fine host and a guest who is an asset to a party. Is he indifferent or helpless as a handy man? A few wife- promoted do-it-yourself jobs will soon have him setting up a workshop and showmg oft his handiwork with pride. Does he have the insufferable attitude that men are vastly superior to women and that the less a wife knows about her husband's business affairs the better? It's a revelation to watch a wife with a quick mind and a sense of humor prick a husband with an inclination to become a stuffed shirt until he is deflated enough to act like a human being. Sure, American men are wonderful. But the very best of the lot have wives who have quietly but determinedly helped to make them so.

(UPD—A king became a queen recently! It happened when Mary Elizabeth King, widow of director Louis King and a member of the American Institute of Designers married business executive Jack Queen. DEAR POLLY — Readers who use return address slickers for their correspondence would find their correspondents very pleased if they enclosed one of the stickers in the letter, especially if your address has changed recently. GIRLS — I think Ed's idea would be very good to acquaint our correspondents with our ilp code numbers. It is impossible for me to remember even those of my own children.—POLLY DEAR POLLY—My Pointer is for the mothers of small children. When my little ones come in covered with snow, I just pick them up at the door, carry them to the bathroom and stand them in the tub to undress them. I leave wet boots and mittens in the tub until the snow melts and keep a few hangers ready on the shower rod for wet coats and pants. This prevents the usual mess on the kitchen floor and no wet clothes draped all over the radiators.—MRS. L. G. DINOSAUR, Colo. (UPD- Easy Street isn't as easy as it used to be. It is now known as Brontosaurus Boulevard. It is the main street of this newly-named northwest Colorado town—the gateway to Dinosaur National Monument. Up until a few days ago, the town was known as .'irtesia. To town officials, it seemed only logical to change the street names along with the name of the town. After aU, who ever heard of calling a street Dwight Avenue in a town called Dinosaur. Plypto-pus Street seemed much more appropriate. Some other new street names, along with the old ones: Stegosaurus Freeway, former ly Baxter Avenue (Colorado 64) Triceratops Terrance, Rangely Avenue Barosaurus Street, Strout -Avenue. Plateosaurus Plaza, Fisher Avenue. Coratosaurus Camino, Bosco Avenue Tyrannosaurus Trail, Dexter Avenue. New street signs will be erect ed in the shape of the ancient reptile for which each street is named. The town fathers decided to leave the numbered streets with their present designations, rather than add to the confusion. The town is located on U.S. 40, south of tlie large monument area, which contains the world's largest collection of dinosaur fossils. let Theatre and former soloist with BaUet Busse de Monte Carlo, will dance the Prince in the same production. Patricia Norman, ballerina, and Bruce Bain, premier danseur, will appear m the roles of Aurora and the Prince in Act II of "Sleeping Beauty".
