Poge 20 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MAY 19, 1965 City must not neglect the bfighted -street problem How to finance the repaying of all of Redlands' worst streets is not answered in the city's progi'am for capital improvements in the decades ahead. This should be pointed out now because so many buildings and public works are specifically proposed that a quick reading of the "blueprints" gives the impression that all needs have been taken into account. The omission of these deplorable streets reflects the fact that no one at City Hall has ever been able to figure out how to bring all of our streets up to standard, and at the same time provide for public works of higher priority. But first, credit is due to City Hall for the positive progress of recent times. Some of the things that have been accomplished ai'e: 1 The widening and improvement of arterial streets by those who develop pi'operty along them. San Mateo below Cypress is one example. 2 Providing budget funds for resurfacing streets where property owners are willing to share in the cost. E.xample: upper Buena Vista street. 3 Through the League of Cities and members of the Legislature, successfully participating in the movement to add one cent to the gasoline tax. This was accomplished in September 196.3, all revenue accruing to county and city street improvements. Redlands gets about 560,000 annually. 4 Establishing a table of street surfacing priorities according to an objective formula. 5 Designating in the long range capital improvements plan streets to be widened to ease traffic congestion. Example: Eureka from the post office to Redlands boulevard. Collector and arterial streets carry the most traffic and will get 60 per cent of the available funds. This leaves 40 per cent for residential streets. Here is the problem. So many miles of street need resurfacing that the ones of lowest priority aren't even on the published list. What is a low priority street? The rating formula included three factors: traffic volume, how bad the pavement is, and if the curbs are in their ultimate location. The way this works out in practice the poor street with little traffic is not eligible for resurfacing unless owners of abutting property pai'ticipate in the expense. While chuckliole streets must be accepted with resignation by the impoverished people of Tijuana, Redlanders can reasonably hold higher expectations. Further, the city should identify the streets that have such a low priority rating that they can't qualify for funds for years to come. That is necessai-y in order to spread the realization that if property owners want better pavements in those neighborhoods they should get up a cooperative program in which they and their neighbors will pay part of the cost and the city will pay the remainder. in the long run, Redlands will eliminate blighted streets if—and only if—community builders insist that this is important. When boosters are setting their goals for Redlands, let them include a complete street system in which all can take pride. The Newsreel The office grouch describes the room where he sits and watches baseball on television as his fallout shelter from the cultui'e explosion. Wc saw a movie the other night which, for fidelity to the text, was about halfway between the book and the ads. It used to be you could roll a cigarette with one hand. Now it takes two just to get a pack out of the machine. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore Approved by the Assembly in Sacramento last Thursday, Assembly Bffl 1750: "Amends the education code, adding requirement that teachers, in addition to other moral training, shall teach pupils about kindness toward domestic pets and humane treatment of living creatures." These are noble sentiments, but we are wondering how they apply in the case o£ little .-Vp- plejack—a pet skunk who lost his charm. We have it on the word of Bill Jennings of the Riverside Press that Applejack is a pet who bears humans no malice and why should he? At the mountain station of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway he discovered that life can be easy for the skunk who loves mankind. There were daily handouts of food at the kitchen door. Hov/ever, when Applejack showed up for breakfast one morning recently he smelled like—well, like a skunk. Apparently he had met another of his kind in the woods, engaged in argument, and left in a spray. Wafted through the cafe, his perfume was not exactly an attraction to business, the management felt. But there wasn't much that could be done instantly except go to Applejack's scratching place under the building and scour it with tomato juice. This is said to be an anti- skunk treatment known to Indians, mountain men and the like, but we wouldn't vouch for it. The next step in the operation was to call on the state park rangers to trap Applejack and move him elsewhere. But then we get back to that Assembly Bill. The problem here is tliat if you love animals, they may love you—just like little .'Applejack. And if he really has deep affection for you, he may walk 50 miles to come back "home", skunky smell and all. The Legislature, alas, gives no guidance to the teacher who must tell little Johnny what should come ne.xt in the saga of the skunk who lost his charm. Burton E. Green, who turned empty fields into the fashionable :ity of Beverly Hills, died Thursday at the age of 96. Many a Eedlander can recall the almost uninhabited territory where the oil man began to promote a city. They used to gel on the Big Red Cars of the Pacific Electric, in Redlands, and go to Beverly I-Iills to attend the automobile races in the early 1920s. The track at Beverly, and its predecessor at Culver City, were the nearest thing to the Indianapolis Speedway that Californians have ever seen. It was a board track, oval in shape, and a mile and a quarter per lap. The turns were banked so steeply that when the race was not in progress you couldn't walk up it witliout taking hold of a rope. In those races the cars attained about the same speeds as ^t Indianapolis, and c o m- peted for about the same distance. Because the entire race ivas visible from the spectator stands, it was superior to any racing of the modern day, as at Riverside. The Beverly Hills track constituted an extravagant use of larnl, because a great area was requii'ed, and tliero were only a couple of races each year. Nothing could better strike the contrast with Beverly Hills of 1965—the Diamond Tiara district of Los Angeles—where land is as valuable as if every square foot was speckled with native gold.

One concerns this country's on-the-spot representation when that crisis e.xploded. It is now clear that a wide gap of misunderstanding existed between the American Ambassador, W. Tapley Bennett Jr., and the rebels, particularly the non-Communist supporters of Juan Bosch. Bosch was the island's last and only popularly elected President in three decades. Bennett is a career diplomat and one of the better ones. But a long-known defect of American diplomacy is the failure of too many of its representatives to keep in close touch, not just with the government to which they are accredited, but with students, labor, intellectuals and the opposition which may later come to powei". Vice - President Hubert Humphrey, an inveterate traveler, has been a leading critic of this deficiency. Drawing on his own political experience, he warned it could only result in unwelcome surprises to Washington. President Johnson grasped early the one-sided nature of Bennett's on-the-scene judgment in the first confused days. He turned first to former Ambassador John Bartlow Martin, a friend of Bosch and former speech writer for Adlai Stevenson, John Kennedy and Johnson. Ironically, Martin was just completing a book on the limits of U.S. power in the world, using his own experience in Santa Domingo as an example. With great courage, he undertook the delicate and dangerous mission of acting as intermediary between the outraged Bosch and the American authorities. The original uneasy truce was largely his work. Last week end the President sent a new team to the scene, including his own top advisers. The Associated Press reports that it has tackled first the U.S. - backed Dominican junta, which was originally accepted here as a necessary evil, and is pressuring it to resign. The generals leading the junta have been the object of many disquieting assessments from reporters competent to judge. No American Ambassador could create that stable middle class in the Dominican Repub- Uc which seems best able to maintain order and afford hope of progress. Martm's forthcoming book wiU shed light on that subject. But the fact that the United States now feels compelled to turn against the junta it created because of the nature of that junta's leadership shows that the Dominican power struggle is more comphcated than it seemed from a State Department desk. An understandable desire exists at the White House to avoid hack political appointments to diplomatic posts. Still, the position of Ambassador is political in the best sense, especially if he is bound for a troubled country so close to our shores. With his top aides in Santa Domingo, the master politician of them all. the President, is showing a new awareness that this is true. He is absorbed now in finding political solutions, a congenial task whose success will answer his critics far more effectively than any amount of teach-ins.

Brandstadt With nice weather, people naturally turn to outdoor sports. It is important to avoid overdoing them. Some people assume that if a little exercise is good, a lot must he even better. This is not true and can endanger health. The least of these is the muscle soreness fell when a sedentary worker decides he must not waste a single minute of his weekend and goes out and plays 36 holes of golf or 10 sets of tennis in one day. ]\Iore serious is the risk of getting a severe sunburn or putting too great a strain on tlie heart. The athlete who engages in sports often has through proper coaching, learned how to take care of his body in all seasons. Most of us are not in that class. Wo must work into summer sports gradually. Other serious hazards of overexertion in summer are heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Heat stroke comes on after sustained The Conservative party in the city of New York will be faced with a now-or-never situation this year in the election of a mayor. Democratic Mayor Robert F. Wagner will be opposed by Rep. John V. Lindsay, a liberal Republican now serving his fourth term in the House of Representatives. The Republican leaders of New York persuaded Lindsay to run. The formalities of his nomination are a mere routine. That puts it up to the New York Conservatives. The Conservative party in New York was organized to compel the Republican party in city and state to reverse the drift to the left in an effort to out-promise the Democrats in bids for votes. Resist Left Wingers It is the Conservative purpose to resist the nomination of left wing Republicans to political office. When they are unable to prevent such a nomination, the Conservatives put up their own candidate to siphon of Republican votes that otherwise proba- 0 1965 by NEA, Inc. "D'td'ja hear the scuttlebutt.. . Congress is genna give would brcak ""for the par- pay raises to federal employees AND the Armed Forces!" ty's left nominee. The upcoming nomination of Lindsay for mayor is precisely the kind of political maneuver that the Conservatives are pledged to prevent. Since they cannot prevent this nomination, it will be up to the Conservatives to prove their political muscle by entering their own candidate and thus obtam Linday's defeat. Balance Of Power It the election should work out that way, the Conservatives •would emerge in a very strong balance of power position in New York. They would demand and expect to get some authority in the selection of future Republican nominees for city and state police. And, of course, they would blackball Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. Should Lindsay be elected mayor despite Conservative opposition, the splinter organization might begin to disintegrate. As a Republican mayor of New York City, Lindsay reasonably could expect to be promoted to governor. The governor's mansion in Albany is an ideal launching pad toward a presidential nomination. Lindsay will be 50 years old in 1972. LIGHTER SIDE By DICK WEST Selling hope WASHINGTON (UPI) — For all of my ever-loving, blue-eyed, married life I have been wondering w^hat in the world was in that gloop my wife spreads over her face at bedtime. Now I know. Chemically, it is composed of hydrated complex colloidal magnesium aluminum silicate, sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, polyvinyl pyrllidone K60, methyj parahydrox benzoate and pro- •p.icylated octadecanol, among other things. But the main ingredient is "hope." My thanks for this vital bit of intelligence goes to a squad of indignant ladies from the cosmetics industry who appeared before the Senate Commerce Committee this week demanding certain rights on behalf of all womankind. They were in a high dudgeon. That's for sure. They may even have had blood in their eyes, but I couldn't tell about that. Too much mascara. Anyway, there was no uncertainty about their opposition to a provision in the "truth in packaging" bill that they claimed would tend to standardize the size and shape of cosmetic containers. This, they protested, would deprive their sex of a basic freedom—freedom to buy creams, lotions, oils, unguents, powders, fragrances and various other poultices in the bottle, jar, spreader, duster or spray-on applicator of their choice. "If she wants her eye shadow in a replica of the Grecian urn, let her have it!" one of them dramatically declaimed. "Women do not want cold cream packaged in mustard jars," another daintily demurred. "To standardize packaging would be as catastrophic as to standardize women," a third drastically declared. Furthermore, women don't want the labels on the bottles cluttered up with a lot of tech- Today is Wednesday, May 19, the 139"th day of 1965 with 226 to follow. The moon is approaching its last quarter. The morning star is Saturn. The evening star is Mars. Dame Nellie Melba, the Australian operatic soprano, was born on this day in 1859.

In 1940, William Allen White, the editor of the Emporia, Kan., Gazette, helped organize the Committee lo Defend America by aiding the allies. In 1945. more than 400 U.S. Superfortress bombers soared over Japan, attacking Tokyo and laying mines in vital sea Janes. In 1964, Gov. George Wallace of .Alabama won 42 per cent of the votes in a primary election in Maryland. It was one of several primaries Wallace entered and the voting was viewed as reaction to civil rights activities. -A. thought for the day: Greek playwright Epictetus said: "No man is able to make progress when he is wavering between opposite things." nical nomenclature setting forth the ingredients of the potions contained therein.

Should the committee fail to heed their plea, I recommend that they organize a demonstration. They could call it a "smear-on." .'Vnd for a theme song, I suggest something on the order of "•We Shall Overcome."

His skin becomes hot and dry and his lemperatiu-e may reach 110 degrees. Prompt lowering of the temperature is essential to prevent damage to the brain, heart, kidneys and liver and even <leath. The victim should be placed in a tub of ice water, if possible, a doctor should be called. If he cannot be placed in ice w-a- ter he must be cooled as rapidly as possible by whatever means are available. In heat exhaustion the victim's skin feels cold and clammy. This condition is due to a depletion of salt and water through excessive sweating. The lictim should be wrapped in a blanket. He should be given water to which salt has been added (1 teaspoon to a quart) only if he is conscious. Otherwise, trying to get him to drink will cause him to choke. He should also be under the care of a doctor until the emergency is past.
