There were is this prospective intnision upon one of the greatest spectacles of nature that so excites the Sierra Club. Such conservation battles are almost impossible to win if the proposed public works project is indispensable for the gi-owth of cities and crop lands. The Glen Canyon dam could not be stopped because of its function in conserving the waters of the river on which so much of the southwest depends. However, the dams that have now been built conserve the entire flow of the Colorado. When the stream finally reaches the Morelos dam in Mexico the last diversion is made. From there to the Gulf, the Colorado consists only of the water that drains back from the fields. The real purpose of the Bridge Canyon dam signed for anything but a big would be to extract electricity from the Jokc Everyone sees in it what mighty river. And the reason for this generation would be to subsidize the Central Arizona Project. That scheme envisions an aqueduct that \\-ouId start just across Lake Havasu from the San Bernardino County shoreline, and convey water to the Phoenix and Tucson districts. Some water would be for municipal use, but in the early years of the project, much would be for agriculture. In this regard, the Bridge Canyon dam would be somewhat similar to Hoover Dam. While part of the power generated at Hoover comes to Southern California, part is also used to pump water in the Metropolitan Water District aqueduct—the "life line" of Southern California. When Hoover Dam was being planned in the latter 1920s, there was no other immediate source of power for our aqueduct. Today the planners of the Central Arizona Project have has been the TFX fighter, which alternatives to Bridge Canyon power.

The explanatory sign said: "Photographers. Be our guest. Photograph your favorite astronaut on our rocket." "That's the craziest airplane I ever saw," exclaimed the lady in dark glasses and cornucopia straw hat. She spoke for practically everybody who looked at t h e startling XB-70.

"They say it looks like a cobra, and it does if you see it from the front and side." "Why that airplane looks just like those porpoises when they arch out of the water at Marineland." Maybe that's why Congress and generals were so at odds with Defense Secretary Robert McNamara. They were determined that the XB-70 should be the follow-on bomber to the B-52 and he was adamantly opposed. Like the spectators at Edwards yesterday, the people in Washington each saw something different in the starthng XB-70. Also causing great controversy the wings in against the fuselage — as in supersonic flight — and extending them, as when landing. Maybe you would call this airplane a "bird". We can report that Armed Forces ccuminity is working — after a fasliion — at Edwards. A Royal Air Force pilot was at tlie controls of the huge C- 133 turbo-prop transport, while a U.S. Air Force man flew the new C-141 jet transport. Navy men flew some of the fighters, as everyone could tell. Because when they came in and paraded before the grand stand —canopies up — three seagoing, airmen were wearing their shipboard Naval officers hats. And the real enthusiast raised and brandished his flashing steel sword above his head. Demonstrating the F-4 was Capt. Lachlan MacLeay, Redlands High school graduate ('49). Because he entered the service at the U. S. Naval academy when he was a resident here, he still gives Redlands as his home town. Graduating from the naval academy, he elected to transfer immediately to the U.S. Air Force and is now in his second Salvation by education? Today education is touted as the cure-all for what ails all individuals and our society. But J. Glenn Gray, philsophy professor at Colorado College, expresses doubts in a Harper's magazine article: "Salvation on the Campus". Writing of such brilliant, alienated students as Mario Savio who led the paralysing Free Speech movement at Berkeley, he says they are trying to make some sense out of life in this era. They have a profound feeling of disengagement with American culture, disdaining conformity and normal business and professional life. In their search for individuality and meaning, they crave action. Savio—typically—found it last summer working in the civil rights movement in the South, and last fall in bringing the University to a halt. The real question in Professor Gray's mind stInras "r \cst"piyot"at EdwaVds" is whether these students will take the philo- -Everybody thinks being a sophical road that finds purpo.se in life, or "Nothingness". That's where we get back to that nagging doubt about the fniits of higher education. In concluding his article the Colorado philosopher writes: "My pessimistic sense of catastrophe has lessened somewhat since 1960, but I find that my deep uneasiness about the cour.se of American education lias grown. Nowadays nearly everyone looks to education for salvation as once we looked to religion or to a political ideology. "But before we succeed in building the great society, we shall need to resolve the doubt and bafflement about its validity and worth in the minds of those now in college who should serve as leaders. Many of the harassed young men and women I teach, at any rate, have not decided what sense, if any, their existence has."

A panel of experts thinks there may be life on Mars. If there's life in a panel of experts, why not Mai's? Thanks to its high standard of living, the United States produces 1,000 pounds of litter and i-ubbish per person annually. And we can double it by 1975 if everybody tries just a little hai-der. The office grouch refers to the beat music from Great Britain as Cornwallis's revenge. A poll indicates that only 2 per cent of the population think that criminals are treated too harshly.

More poignantly, they are in truth turning 180 degrees away from tlie whole position stoutly mamtained on this harsh issue by their late brother. President John F. Kennedy, and by his closest advisers, including Bob Kennedy, when he was John Kennedy's Attorney General. President Kennedy — and Attorney General Kennedy, too— always wanted only accomplished and enforceable legislation, knowing that to demand Uie screaming impossible was perhaps good political theater but was also to risk winding up with nothing useful done. President Kennedy steadfastly resisted the liberal extremists. And so did Robert Kennedy— as Attorney General. Indeed, the Kennedy Administration never asked Congress for civil rights legislation remotely so sweeping as President Johnson and the responsible Democratic and Republican Senate leaderships are now asking. But even though this Negro voting rights bill is incomparably more far-reaching than anj'thing ever proposed by tlie Kennedy Administration, it is still not nearly "tough" enough for the Kennedy brothers. Their recent defeated effort to incorporate into the bill an attempt to strike dowTi even local and state poll taxes by mere Congressional ukase involves the most extraordinary turnabout in recent political history. For they insisted upon this thrust in the face of all these plain facts: Item. That the present Attorney General. Nicholas Katzenbach — the same Nicholas Katzenbach who was Robert Kennedy's principal advisor on precisely such questions when Robert Kennedy was Attorney General—had gravely and repeatedly questioned the constitutionality of so violent and so unexampled a Congressional fiat. (After all. Congress had already once conceded itself powerless to strike down the poll tax, even as applied to national elections. So it submitted a constitutional amendment to the states, and thus the job_ was done constitutionally.) Item. That former Assistant Attorney General Burke Marshall, who was Robert Kennedy's trusted second man in the Justice Department, agreed with Katzenbach. Item. That the same forces now demanding this absurd and pointless rider — pointless because it is not the poll tax which has prevented Negro voting but rather the denial of the right to register—constantly bedeviled President Kennedy and were as constantly brushed off by him. Item. Tliat the incorporation of this needlessly provocative and undeniably dubious gadget would have raised a clear danger to enactment of the bipartisan bill itself. For tliis would have carried the thing so far as to repel those reasonably minded Northern Senators who will have the power of final decision on the whole business. Jlost ironic of all is that Sen. Ted and Robert Kennedy have now made an alliance with the same extremist groups which gave their late brother the only consistently serious trouble he ever knew as President. He would never come to heel, for illustration, to Americans for Democratic .\ction. They have become, in this matter, its principal Senate spokesmen. The assumption is that Ted and Robert are moving to grasp unchallenged leadership of the entire Democratic left wing against the day when the Presidential nomination will be open to competition. Their presumptive rival is Vice-President Hubert Humphrey. He used to be at least a dozen shades more liberal than any Kennedy—John, Robert, or Ted. Now, it is not possible to see where Humphrey in common sense can go, unless toward the center. The Kennedys are going altogether to preempt the left, and the urban masses on which it is based. Politics makes strange bedfellows? In this case it makes even stranger beds. (Copyright, 1965, by United Feature SjTidicate, Inc.) THE Will CHILD Remind son that heroes take safety precautions By Dr. Wajne G. Brandstadt If your son rebels against summer safety rules it may be because you adopt a "mother knows best" attitude. A better plan is to remind him that his heroes—be they astronauts or baseball stars—prepare very carefully for every performance and (rain themselves to meet emergencies. Noting that the leading causes of accidents among school-age children are auto accidents, drowning and burns, a group of physicians at the University of Rochester found that children between the ages of 5 and 14 are the ones most likely to violate safety ndes. At thai age they are starting to use such adult tools as lawn mowers and sports equipment, yet they resent and tend to ignore adult advice on safety. Parents should, of course, set a good example in summer safety precautions. Here are some summer hazards and tips for preventing them: Children and fireworks don't mix.

LIGHTER SIDE Award time WASHING TON (UPD- SpringUme is the traditional season for handing out awards in .-America. There is hardly anyone who doesn't either win a prize or contract hay fever. During this period, we have the Oscar awards for the movies, the Emmy awards for television, the Pulitzer Prizes for journalism, and scores of other national, regional and local citations in various lines of endeavor. Despite the broad scope of tiiese awards, however, there are always many meritorious achievements that go unrecognized. For this reason, I customarily make it a point to hand out a few awards of my own in categories that would otherwise be overlooked or ignored. Within the past year, for instance, there has been a lot of excellent work in the field of congressional modesty (news release division). After long deliberation, I By DICK WEST have decided to make this a joint citation. The winning entries for the most unassuming congressional news releases read as follows: —"Billie S. Fanjum's reputation as Michigan's 'watchdog of the tax dollar' today won him an honor rare for a freshman congressman — a seat on the powerful appropriations committee. —"The U.S. House of Representatives Building Commission has announced a spending reduction of $5.5 million dollars on office facilities following a request by Congressman Jack Edwards (R-Ala.) and 65 other Republican congressmen." To William L. Batt Jr., head of the Area Redevelopment Administration, goes this year's award for dramatic oratory (local angle division).

After at first "standing out like a sore thumb" on a certain issue, Stratton "came up smelling like roses." A special citation for myth debunking (shattered illusions division) goes to the National Georgraphic Society.

Next spring, with a little luck, maybe they will get hay fever instead. that youngsters don't have access to them. Use garden chemicals according to directions. Clean insecticide sprayers after each use and store the containers out of reach of children and pets. If you use a chemical fire starter in your outdoor grill be sure to follow the directions on the container. Don't spray lighter fluid on a fire once il's started. Never use gasoline as a fire starter. Don't let anyone mow the lawn while barefooted or lightly shod. When the mower is in use be sure that everyone is out of range of flying pebbles because a pebble struck by 3 power mower travels at the speed of a bullet. Children and adults alike should receive an antitetanus booster every 5 years after the initial series of inoculations. This should be done before summer activities get under way. A nail scratch could be fatal. Install and use safety belts in your automobile. When driving keep a sharp watch for hikers and bicycle riders, especially at dusk. For minor cuts and burns rmse gently in cold tap water. In case of serious injury get professional help immediately. Above all don't panic. THE ALMANAC Today is Monday, May 17, the 137th day of 1965 with 228 to follow. The moon is approaching its last quarter. The morning star is Saturn. The evening star is Mars. Edward Jenner, the EngUsh physician' who discovered the vaccination against smallpjx, was born on this day in 1749. On this day in history: In 1875, the first "Kentucky Derby" horse race was held at Churchill Downs, in Louisville. It was won by "Aristides." In 1954, in a unanimous decision, tlie Supreme Court ruled that racial segregation in the nation's public schools was unconstitutional. In 1960, summit talks collapsed as Nikita Khrushchev demanded an apology from President Eisenhower for U2 spy plane flights over Russia. A thought for the day: President Franklin D. Roosevelt once said—"It is an unfortunate human failing that a full pocket' book often groans more loudly than an empty stomach."
