Poge 16 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MAY 10,1965 Faulty policies encouraged Air Force Academy cheaters Faulty policies of the Air Force Academy were in part to blame for the exams-for-sale scandal according to the special investigating committee's report. The Colorado Springs program relies heavily on athletics to build the competitive spirit that is essential in a fighting man. But this policy got out of hand, resulting in an undue desii-e for "big-time football glory." Once this fault developed, the report shows, it had the same corrapting influence on the academy that it has so often had in civilian universities. Nearly half of the cadets involved in cheating were men who had been reciTjited as athletes. The recruiting game, the board found, "distorted the tnie values of the educational experience in the mind of the sought-after-athlete." The board noted that football players had been gi-anted unwarranted "special privileges." They were permitted to divorce themselves from regular activities of their wings and to build up loyalties to each other rather than to the wing. "When those misplaced notions of loyalty were challenged by a less personal honor code, the latter gave way in all to many cases . . . The purpose of the academy is not to. produce the finest football team in the nation but to educate outstanding officers for an Air Force career . . . Tlie present football schedules and programs are not entirely consistent with this goal." The cheating incident did have the valuable side-effect of forcing a top level review of the institutional shortcomings of the academy while it is still in its formative years. Gen. White found the school has suffered fi'om too frequent changes in leadership, has imdergone rapid changes in basic programs and philosophy, and has lacked proper communication between authorities and cadets. Part of the fault has been a tendency in the Air Force to ti-eat the Academy as a post to which an officer is assigned as if it were just any other post. For example, the tenure of the Superintendent has not been much longer than the stay of a commander of the San Bernardino Air Materiel Area. An officer who is a civil engineer may be given a stint teaching mathematics at Colorado Springs for several yeai-s, and then be transferred to engineering duties at an air base. As might be ex-pected. Gen. White's board found that a great school is not build in that way. The board recommended that the superintendents and commandants of the academy serve tours of at least four years. The investigators also said that top priority should be given to selection and education of career officers for duty on the academy faculty. In short, the cheating scandal forced a timely soul-searching of the objectives and policies of the Academy. Now the job is to implement the Wliite report. Alabama justice The two White jurors who would not vote Friday at Hayneville, Ala., to find Collie L. Wilkins guilty of murdering Viola Liuzzo, tossed more fuel on the flaming issue of racial discrimination. By planting an infonner with Wilkins and his Ku Klux Klan pals, the FBI was able to produce in court a witness who told the tmth. He had been in the car from which the gim was fired, killing the Detroit woman who was transporting Selma marchers. Surely it must have gone against the gi'ain of several of the 10 jurors who voted for the conviction of Wilkins. They were trae to their oath and voted to decide the case according to the law and the e\adence. The two holdouts refused, in effect, to vote on the guilt of Wilkins. Instead, they decided that Gai-y T. Rowe violated his oath of Klan secrecy when he turned state's witness. To "convict" Rowe they cast their ballots for the innocence of Wilkins. This is such an outi'ageous substitution of prejudice for reason that it will heighten the widespread opinion that Alabama justice is measured for Whites and against Blacks.

With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore Fifty years ago the F. \V. Woolworth company opened a store in the heart of Redlands. Today they are still doing business in about the same location. Several other chains have tried to compete with Woolworth at nearby locations, only to suffer defeat and retire from the battle. By the test of survival. Woolworth is the champ in its field. When we were kids, nobody called the store "Woolworth's". They usually called it "The nickel and dime store." Later, that was shortened to "the dime store." Modern kids might wonder what you meant by that term. Woolworth's abandoned the nickel-and-dime system of merchandising a long time ago. We don't know what their most e.xpensive item may be, but in casing the store Friday evening we noticed that the customer was expected to bring folding money. Stretch capris, for example, were somewhere around S5.95. The capris also indicate the change in merchandising. They are a fashion item. Style travels downward and the journey from the ski slopes, to I. Magnin's to Woolworth's was relatively short. In the old days, notions were the stock in trade . . . buttons . . . pencils . . . soap . . . safety pins . . . hair oil. Now its hard to define the range of merchandise. What would the founder think of orchid corsages from Hawaii and miniature finches from Africa? And what would he think of the 25 cent guide to California sauterne at S2 per bottle and French champagne at 56.50? While the customer can infer the retail policy of the store from inspecting the merchandise, some of the business policies aren't visible on the surface. Such a store requires a high volume of pedestrian traffic passing the front door. The trick is to get a firm lease on such a spot and at a price the volume of business warrants. Having determined before World War II that the main corner of town — Orange and State — was a prime location, Woolworth negotiated a deal with the owner of the property, the Estate of A. G. Hubbard. On that site stood a building occupied by Annabil's Drug Store, on the ground floor, and by offices on the second floor. Those leases wore terminated and the building was torn down. In its place the present building was built by the Hubbard Estate to the Woolworth specifications. The lease was written with a basic rental per month to which would be added a specified percentage of the gross business. That was considered a progressive lease at the time and proved advantageous to both the store and the estate. Not many years ago a tape recorder was a machine that seldom sold for less than SIOO. Distribution was mainly through stores that specialized in radios, phonographs, and television. Now the tape recorder is found everywhere — department stores, food centers, jewelry stores, drug stores and — yes —"the dime store". Although we hold the functions of a tape recorder in high respect we simply cannot understand why so many people buy the machines or what they do with them after they take them home. Our guess is that the most common motive for buying is vanity. The human being does not live who can resist looking at his own image in a mirror. The tape recorder permits you to hold a "mirror" up to your voice. No one supposes that his own voice sounds as the recorder proves it to sound, nor does he reahze that he says things precisely in the way he docs say them.

LIGHTER SIDE Mighty zippy WASHINGTON (UPI) — In testifying before a House subcommittee recently. Postmaster General John A. Gronouski gave a glowing report on the progress of the zip code program. While conceding that there may still be "pockets of resistance," he said the public thus far "has taken to the zip code like ducks to water." I'll confess that until a few days ago, I was one of the pockets. Frankly, my conduct in relation to the zip code has not been very duck-like. Having already been assigned more numbers than I can possibly keep 'track of, I automatically tend to resist anything that smacks of digitization. At the same time, however, I also try to keep an open mind, and so I resolved to put the zip code to a little test.

Nelson Rockefeller of New York has now drawn up his forces into battle array for a decisive and as yet a largely underground war for control of the liberal wing of the Republican party against the 1968 Presidential election. The Governor's announcement for re-election to a third term next year signals beyond much question his intention again to seek the G.O.P. Presidential nomination. Without any question at all, it signals at minimum a determination to reassert early and consolidate early his presently shaky headship of the party in New York State. He is moving to be certain of holding total command of the big New York delegation to the Republican national convention of 1968. But if the Governor is refraining, so far, from anything like an overt ca^ididacy for President, his erstwhile closest associate. Sen. Jacob K. Javits of New York, is making not the faintest secret that he has a candidacy of his own. In a word. Senator Javits is running right now for the Vice-Presidential nomination, paying no attention whatever to one of the hardiest traditions of politics. Nobody ever is supposed to seek openly the Vice-Presidency. One is supposed only to wait around until the job is offered to him by the Presidential nominee. Moreover, the rules of the game say that if a man wishes quietly and softly to maneuver backstage to be "considered," he must never admit it, except perhaps to his wife or mother. But Javits admits it, even though of course he stops a bit short of saying it under klieg lights. In consequence, the figure of Jacob K. Javits of New York is now necessarily becoming the possibly immovable object in the path of the presumably irresistible desire of Nelson Rockefeller of New York for the top nomination. For Senator Javits is pro- Rockefeller — for Governor in 1966, but certainly not for President in 1968. The Javits view is that Rockefeller has had his times at bat, could not in any event win the Presidential des- By DtCK WEST Texas, mail to my home in the Virginia suburbs of Washington six envelopes — three with au-mail and three with first class postage. One of each variety bad my zip code on the address; one had no zip code, and one had the WTong zip code. In the third category, I used the zip code of some place in Florida. My father dropped them all into a mail box on a Sunday afternoon, and I marked down their arrival time as they were delivered. On the basis of this experiment, I am now willing to admit that the zip code program really works. The airmail envelope with the correct zip code was delivered to my house on Tuesday. Which is pretty zippy. Considering the distance, you could hardly ask for better service than that. The zip coded envelope bearing regular postage arrived on Tliursday. Which isn't bad eith- ignation. and should now gracefully withdraw from that contention in favor of some other liberal Republican. If the phrase "some other liberal" should come to mean Gov. George Romney of Michigan, it is a very safe bet that no objection would rise from the vicinity of Jacob Javits. For he is undoubtedly attracted, unprecedented as this would be, by the possibility of a 1968 Republican ticket made up at both ends of representatives of what are called minority groups—Romney, a Mormon, and Javits, a Jew. He thinks that since the country got rid in 1960 of the old saw that no CathoUc could ever be elected President it might well get rid of another old saw, that no Jew could ever be elected Vice- President. The Javits estimate of Rockefeller's inability under any con-' ditions to attain the Presidential nomination in 1968 may or may not be sound. What is quite certam, and what is at all events much more important, is that a deep wedge of great implications for the future is being driven into the Republican party in New York State. The Eastern Republicans generally are and long have been in or very near the orbit of New York, with an occasional turn toward Pennsylvania as an alternate power center. The Eastern RepubUcans have never been able to master a Republican national convention except when they were at one among themselves. The Eastern Republicans are not going to be at one in 1968, as things presently stand. This is the simple one, two, three of it. Thus barring the highly improbable eventuality of some renewal for national purposes of the old RockefeUer-Jav- its partnership, some accomoda­ tion of their sharply competing interests, the traditional Republicans based in the Middle West will again be in the saddle. Again in 1968 they will send the Easterners howling in rage and frustration from the convention hall, rather as they did in 1964 in putting over Barry Goldwater.

Not as much fun as you might suppose. Some children are born with a disease known as familial dysautonomia which means a hereditai-y disturbance of t h e nervous system involving certain functions. The victims do cry, but they shed no tears. The have normal intelligence, but poor muscular control. They gag easily and have frequent spells- of vomiting. They also perspire profusely and have bouts of fever as high as 110 degrees. Another name for this recently discovered abnormality is Riley- Day disease. Pain normally is a warning Teletips TOP SHOW: - 7:30 Chan. 7. Saga of Western Man. "The Pilgrims."

Just to complete the record, and for purposes of comparison, here are the delivery times of •the other envelopes: The two airmails — one without a zip code and one with the wrong code — also arrived in Tuesday's mail, along with airmailed, zip-coded envelope. The two first class items—one sans code and the other incorrectly coded—were delivered on Thursday, along with the correctly coded envelope witli the same postage. As you can see from tliis, the zip code program is truly remarkable. It not only speeds deUvery of zip coded letters, but of other mail as well. I wonder why Gronouski did not tell the subcommittee about that. sign and since the cliDdren with this disease do not feel pain they may suffer burns, fractures and cuts without knowing it. Tlie only advantage is tliat if they have to have stitches taken they don't need an anesthetic. It is rare for a doctor to diagnose this disease in a cliild under one. Since some victims die of compUcations in theur first year, their death is usually blamed on some other cause. Once the diagnosis is made measures aimed at preventing complications are applied because no drugs have been found helpful. The child must be taught not to take hot food or drink. His friends must be taught not to engage him in rough games. When he has had a fall he must tell his mother so that she can look for an injury. One young victim was heard to say, "I'll bet I'm the most X-rayed kid in town!" Any parent who must carry the worry of trying to raise a child with this disease may get in touch with the Dysautonomia Association, Inc. (576 Fifth Ave., New York, N.Y. 10036) for further mformation. In union tliera is strength. Q—About tliree months ago my daughter, 8, had a kidney infection. The doctor cleared it up but suggested that we have her kidneys X-rayed. Would it be possible for her to have bad kidneys and still look healthy? A—Because kidney infections often recur, a check of your daughter's urine should be done three or four times a year for several years. If there is any evidence of a recurrence a thorough examination of the kidneys, including X rays, should be made. The object is to treat the recurrance before she no longer appears to be healthy.
