Ann Landers QX\%^Qr% your problems TIZZY By Kate Osanu Dear Ann Landers: A close friend has a four-year-old child. I've developed a terrific dislilce for the child and I'm sure others have, too. Whenever the telephone rings the child answers it. She often asks, "Who is this?" And "What do you want Mommy for?" Whenever this friend ftlephones me she says, "Somebody here wants to talk to you." Then she puts the youngster on. Is it fair for a mother to inflict her cliild on anyone who happens to ring up? Is it wise to give a four-year-old the impression that everyone and anyone wants to listen to her babble? I would like to see this letter and your reply in print because others who have this problem must be as baffled as I am.— RESENTFUL Dear Resentful: A four-year- old should not be permitted to answer the phone, and a mother who inflicts her four-year-old on friends does them a dirty trick. The solution: Tell the mother how you feel. Dear Ann Landers: I was born and raised in a small town in Ohio. Last Fall I completed a secretarial course. My parents agreed to let me come to Cleve- Unruh pays taxes but late INGLEWOOD (UPI) —Assembly Speaker Jesse M.

I walked right in on my cousin and a fellow 1 had never seen before. Both my cousin and the fellow were very embarrassed — and they had a right to be. I left m a daze and walked the streets for an hour. When I returned my cousin said she was sorry. I can't continue to live with her Imowing what I do. Should I tell my folks? They won't understand why I am moving out unless I explain. — TENDERFOOT Dear Tender: Tell your cousin that smce she created the unfortunate incident it's up to her to find another place to live. Then look for a roommate whoso standards match yours. Don't tell your parents what happened. In years to come you'll be glad you kept your mouth shut — and you cousin will be eternally grateful. Dear Ann Landers: My Pop was in an accident and lost several teeth on one side. He got a couple of bridges put in about two weeks ago. The trouble started then. Pop refuses to eat what Mom cooks for him. All he wants to do is drink one bottle of beer after the other. Mom says if he doesn't eat some solid food he will die of mahiutrition. Pop says beer is plenty nourishing, because of the malt and the hops and the grain and that he can live on it just fine. Mom says if he plans to live on beer he had better start look- ling for another place to live because he is not going to live here. About ten in the evening Pop gets pretty noisy. By 11:00 he is sound asleep on the couch. Pop says he is tired from working so hard. Mom says he is passed out. What about this? — SHOOK COOKIE Dear Shook: Pop needs to go back to the dentist and get those bridges to fit. He is not eating because his teeth aren't right.

SACRAMENTO (UPI) — The 1963, legislature, an abstracted and worrisome body, launched itself Monday into a tough week with tough problems — money and remapping of the state Senate. And the on - again, off-again fight for party leadership between Gov. Edmund G. Brown and Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Unruh, D-Inglewood, was back again. With only five weeks left in the general session and a pile of work to do, there was added confusion over a major chore— a decision on Bro\vn's $4-billion- plus budget - and-tax proposal for next fiscal year. It came with the surprise announcement by Brown last week that the state revenue picture was better than expected an that long - promised tax boosts could be held to a minimum. Despite Brow n's seemingly cheering news some Democrats, notably Unruh, saw it as a harbinger of defeat for a massive Unruh plan to reform the state tax structure, due to lack of an immediate crisis. The state Senate, meantime, was asking a Sacramento superior court judge to rule whether its remapping plan — which has not yet passed the -Assembly but has cleared the Senate—would meet the U.S. Supreme Court's vote" mandate. A heavy schedule of committee meetings on both the budget and reapportionment greeted the lawmakers return from their weekend recess. Several meetings were expected to go far into the night. The Assembly Ways and Means Committee, which is pouring through Brown's spending proposals, is expected to finish its work by the end of the week so floor action can begin on the budget and revenue proposals. But Brown's surprise announcement that he needed only a 5-cent-a - pack boost in cigarette taxes and a 20 per cent tobacco tax to balance his budget put deUberations in a different Ught. Brown, crediting state income tax collections primarily, dropped outright his bill to boost the same tax by $125 million a year. He said boosts in sales or income taxes would be unnecded until 1967—after the 1966 gubernatorial election in which Brown is expected to run. Unruh, thought a possible ri- Viet Nam Reappraisal (II) By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst SAIGON—This is a war without a front, and with many fronts. It is a total war, indiscriminate of its victims, soldier or civiUan. More than 35,000 Americans, ranging from civilian and military advisors to the tough U.S. Marines and paratroops assigned to guard vital bases are arrayed here in a vast effort to save South Viet Nam from a Communist take - over and to give it economic and political stability. .-American dead since Jan. 1, 1961, total more than 450. The effort ranges, from the watery delta of the Mekong River in the south, to the triple-tiered jimgle traversed by the Ho Chi Minh Trail in the north and to the dusty nmways of the big Da Nan airbase on the coastal plain. The war is fought aboard armed junks and converted landing craft patrolling the 2,500 miles of river channels threading tlie Mekong River. It is fought with the armed helicopter called "the Huey" and the troop - carrying 'copter called the "Shck." Fought From Ambush It is fought from savage am- one man, one'bush and it is fought by an American agricultural expert in a Communist Viet Cong - surrounded village. It is a war of frightened villagers and special heroes. Among the latter are the Vietnamese and their American advisors on the river patrol. The high, jungled banks on either side give the Communists a perfect field of fire with which to rake the decks with rifle, machinegun or mortar fire. Shelter is scant or non-existent. Explosive mines lurk just below the surface. Some of the Vietnamese boatmen wear tatooed across their chests the junk force motto — "sat cong." It means kill the Viet Cong. .A man captured with it on his chest is liable to torture and death, at the very least to have the live flesh torn away to erase the motto. The "Hueys" and the "Slicks" have given the helicopter new- status in this war. In most guerrilla wars, a ratio of 10 to 1 has been considered neces sary for defensive forces successfully to meet hit-run guerrilla attack.

I Maj. Edwin Riley of Norwalk, Conn., is a veteran pilot of a "Huey" assigned to protect the troop carriers. His craft carries four machineguns on the outside and two pods each car- rymg seven rockets. Says RUey, "if the Shcks suffer a single hit, then the armed helicopter hasn't done its job." Some 500 miles to the northeast of the delta, where the Hai Vien River flows into the South China Sea, is the city of Da Nang. The French used to call it Tourane. Its population is about 150,000 and it also is home now for 15,000 Americans, including 9,000 Marmes. Cool, thick - v.'alled homes set amid palm trees and flowering gardens are reminders of French colonial times. Its streets tlirong with bicy cles, pedicabs, jeeps, children and just plain people. Sells Anything An open-front shop is the headquarters for an enterprising Da Nang merchant named Kim Chi. He will sell you a piece of jewelry or rent you a jeep. His business motto is: "No VC (Viet Cong), no MP, trade with Kim Chi." No one knows how many of the faceless Viet Cong t h e touTi harbors behind its peaceful and tropical facade. Its streets have been put off limits for the Americans for fear of a Viet Cong-instigated incident. Fronting the river is the Grand Hotel. UPI correspondent Charles Smith stopped there for a quick sandwich one day. A Viet Cong terrorist had planted a bomb on the terrace less than 20 feet away. The bomb failed to explode on schedule, and poUce seized the terrorist when he returned to find out why. H i s bomb's failure saved Smith's life. Men and jet fighters steaming into the Da Nang base to add muscle to the fight against Communist aggression have strained it to its utmost capacity. Tents have mushroomed around barracks buildings and new buildings go up overnight. Planes Give Support Resting on the runways are the FlOO's, the F104's and the Marine Phantoms which give ground support to South Vietnamese forces and carry the war to the North. Maj. W. W. Irwin of Wenatchee. Wash., commands a squadron of F104's that island- hopped from California to reach Da Nang. Less than 24 hours after arrival he flew his first mission. Workhorses of the Da Nang base are the FlOO's, from close support to strikes against North Redlands Daily Facts Tuesday, May 18, 1965 -9 Vietnamese bridges and other communications and supply lines. Squadron Commander J. A. Minish of Yellowstone National Park pointed out a chart on a hangar wall. It showed that in 32 days U. S. fighter - bombers had dropped more than a million pounds of bombs on Communist targets. MORE Maj. Ronald Ingraham of Bethesda, Mich., wears the Silver Star for missions coming to the rescue of downed pilots. These are business-like fighting forces, trained to a de manding profession. Marine Commander Commanding the Marines whose job it is to protect the base is Brig. Gen. Frederick Karch. Karch concedes that his forces cannot prevent a suicide mortar attack against the base, ei Iher from the Viet-Cong-infested villages nearby or even from a hidden platform within Da Nang. But the tough young men under his command daily are pressing their defensive perimeter closer to the green hills which mark the beginning of the mountains and jungle beyond. They seek contact with the Viet Cong and they are getting it. You get the impression that Ihcy hope the Viet Cong will come oui of the hills in a massive strike against them. This is I Corps, the northernmost of the four mihtary corps in South Viet Nam. Da Nang is its most tempting target, both for a Communist attempt to Im- miliate the United States and as a must for Communist victory. Maj. Gen. Nguyen Chanh Thi, energetic commander of 1 Corps, believes Da Nang is No. 1 on the Communist list. No. 2 may be the ancient royal capital of Hue. Beginning Of Trail To the west of Da Nang and Hue lies the beginning of the jungle-covered Ho Chi Minh Ti-ail. Here, along the border with Laos, the jungle is triple-tiered. The top tier of dense foliage feeds upon the second and its roots never reach the ground. Somewhere within the jungle is the Do Xa secret headquarters of the Communist command in I Corps. It remains successfully hidden in a jungle in which a good day's progress may be limited to 75 yards. Americans scotf at any suggestion that Da Nang could develop into another Dien B i e n Phu. Tlie defeat at Dien Bien Phu in 1954 broke the French Wax museum to move West to Anaheim NEW YORK (UPD-The wax works museum that has been the most profitable single amusement concession al the New York's World's Fair is going to have a permanent home at Anaheim, CaUf., near Disneyland. This was announced Monday by Louis Walter, president of Waller's Amusements, Inc. Walter also said thai the wax works museum is oft and running to another successful season in Flushing Meadows. Last year it grossed almost 5600,000 and netted $67,000 while dozens of other fair attraclions folded or had heavy losses. This year, Walter has two wax works shows in the fair. The second is called "Paris Spectacular" and represents an additional investment of S250.- 000. It also will become part of the permanent museum at Anaheim. It includes about 100 figures, some of them reproductions of famous paintings and statues in the Louvre. Police in big roundup S.AN FR.ANCISCO (UPI) — Patrolmen Paul Johnson and Warren Coombs were engaged in a spirited chase of two stray horses Monday when they discovered they were also being pursued — by a goat. Just as the two policemen had almost gotten t h e horses back into their corral, the goat appeared. Johnson scrambled onto the hood of the patrol car and Coombs jumped into the front seat. The goat charged by — following the horses into the corral where, apparently, he also belonged.
