Page 16 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MAY 20, 1965 With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore The lady peacock who thought she was a stork knew what she was doing after all. Our country correspondent, you may recall, reported that instead o£ building her nest in a sensible location she built atop the roof of his two-story house. He admits there was a splendid view up there and if you have nothing to do but sit on some eggs, maybe pleasant scenery makes you happier. But it was an awful struggle for him to climb up to the roof, straddle the ridge pole and to take her food each day. What really bothered him was Junior. How would the little guy manage to get down to the ground without breaking his neck, unless he stayed up there long enough to grow some flying equipment. Well, he needn't have worried. One morning recently he went out of his house and there, on Senator Pierre Salinger later added fuel to the ground, were Ma and Jun- Suppresslng early returns is the wrong method I In a doomed effort to keep early news reports of elections from influencing the outcome, the Legislature has now adopted a bill to suppress partial returns until 8 p.m. on election night. Assemblyman George W. Milias of Gilroy started cooking up such a measure on the eve- jiing of June 2, 1964. At 7:23 p.m., CBS announced that the Goldwater California delegation to the GOP convention was elected. Voting continued for 37 minutes in Santa Clara county, where Milias lives, and in four other counties. He believes the early news influenced Republicans who had not yet voted and contributed to the defeat of the Rockefeller delegation of which he was a member. the fire. He claimed that the early election returns in the Presidential election caused California Democrats to stay home during the final voting hours. Republican George Murphy beat him and took his Senate seat. The Legislature sways in the wind of every election. In 1960 the breeze was from the opposite direction. That was the year the Democrats thought they had carried California for John Kennedy. To their deep chagrin, the absentee ballots tipped the state to Richard Nixon. Determined to avoid such embarrassment in the futm-e, the Democrats adopted a fast election returns policy. They amended the Election Code to put the heat on everybody to tally the returns as rapidly as possible and to announce the results with haste. Now the Legislatui'e has backwatered. Under present law the polls dose in some statewide elections at 7 p.m. in some counties and at 8 in others. The Milias bill prohibits the release of any partial precinct returns until S p.m. In effect, any news of the trend of tlie election will be suppressed until all polls are closed in California. ior. How she transported the little guy from the roof to the ground he can't figure out. Donald and McKee had just been awarded a contract to build a new service yard for the Edison company, according to a 10-years-ago item appearing in the Facts Redlands Yesterdays column. Prompted by this item, we drove down to Tennessee and Citrus to see how the yard now looks. We can report that this facility is a model of its kind. In earlier times, it was expected that any industrial installation would be an eyesore. You weren't supposed to care how it looked because "it creates payrolls" and that was justification enough. When the Depression ended and business could think in positive terms, management began to take the view that plants really didn't have to offend the eye. With a little trouble they could be made attractive. In establishing its new service yard for the Redlands district. Edison look this idea seriously.

Our Legislature can bottle up early returns of California voting but other states will not suppress their returns.

The Kremlin thinkers have fundamentally underestimated the American will to halt Chinese Communist aggression in Asia just as two decades ago they underestimated the American will to halt Soviet Communist aggression in Europe. Seen over the long slope, this somber subterranean development dwarfs such current crises as those in Viet Nam and the Dominican Republic. For going down the drain is an opportunity for a rival still incomparably less powerful than the United Stares to make with us some livable accomodation. President Johnson was not only ready to explore an honest accomodation. Perhaps even more importantly, he was strong enough politically and confident enough at home to carry it through. No President could ever do it without at least the toleration of American conservatives; this toleration Johnson clearly has. And the adventurism of the Red Chinese in Asia—at present, the invasion of South Viet Nam they are pursuing through the North Vietnamese — never wiU .be in the mterests of Russians. To the contrary, every Chinese advance in Asia is a Russian defeat. Until recently Russian informants here have themselves privately made no secret of this reality. .All the same, Moscow has now decided that it must not only go on giving a mixture of progandistic and military aid to this invasion because "a fellow socialist state" is involved. Far worse, Moscow has concluded that it need do nothing to press North Viet Nam to cease its assaults upon South Viet Nam as the pre-condition to moving acceptably to some conference table with the United States. All this is the substance of the highest new American intelligence. The first loser in the fatefuiry ham-handed Kremlin choice is North Viet Nam, which is really playing China's game more than its own. But the deepest loser is the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union is locked with Red China in a brutual struggle for the headship of international communism. Still, this same Soviet Union is allowing itself to become the tail to a Chinese kite in a continent which poses a far greater and geographically much nearer threat for the future to Russia itself than to the West. Why, then, this essentially absurd Soviet choice? The obvious explanation is simply that the Russians believe they dare not let the Red Chinese appear much "tougher" than themselves. Moscow is the demagogue who thinks he must show his constituents—the Communist sateUite ragtag and rabble over the world-that nobody can be more "anti-West" than he is. There is, however, a second, a tragic and probably an actually controlling explanation. This is that the Russians, not for the first time, have ludicrously overvalued superficial evidences of disunity in the United States. A shrill and on the whole a fatuously powerless minority of well-intentioned home critics of this government's refusal to submit to Communist aggression, either in Asia or Latin America, is being seen in Moscow as a real force capable of causing the United Slates to soften its line. The Kremlin, as usual, finds an immense attraction in the cliche-thinking of semi-pacifists in this country. The supreme irony is that many of those Americans who for years have howled that their government was not "flexible" enough to make true probes toward casing the Cold War are precisely those who have now managed to smash the very flexible approach for which they had called so long. This they have done by tirelessly telling Moscow and the world that the United States doesn't really mean it when it says it simply will not lie down Ijefore Communist encroachment.

WASHINGTON (UPD-Down through the years, choosing a wife or a husband has always been a rather haphazard venture, with the accent on the "hazard." The precarious nature of the enterprise can readily be seen in the rising divorce rate. At present, about 25 per cent of the marriages in this country eventually fall down and go boom! This may have been what prompted a California concern called Human Inventory, Inc., to seek a scientific approach to matchmaking. It commissioned a psychologist to prepare a test to determine marriage suitability. Males and females both an swer 500 true-or-false questions of a self-analytical nature, such as "I am frequently the life of the party" and "I believe could adjust to life in prison. These are fed into a compu ter, which then decides what couples are right for each other. Maybe tlie system works, but I am inclmed to doubt that questions like that mean very much as far as ideal marriages are concerned. I have about concluded that the foremost consideration is whether the couples have well- matched fighting styles. My basic for this theory is a survey recently taken by Red- book magazine among 105 married women. The findings published in the current issue show that: —Ail but 4 of them have had fights with their husbands. —44 had been engaged in fights that involved some type of physical violence. —81 believe that fighting serves a useful purpose. —Each woman has an individual fightmg style. The survey tui^ed up sulkers, yellers. A few decades ago men worked 60 or more hours a week and still managed to squeeze a little fun out of life. Now. for mo.st workers, a week's work is 40 hours or less, .As automation is applied to more and more tasks, a further shrinking of the work week is inevitable. I am still a little apprehensive that for many persons this trend is fostering an altered attitude toward work. Truly fortunate is the man who has found THE ALMANAC Today is Tliursday, May 20, the 140th day of 1965 with 255 to follow. The moon is approaching its last quarter. Tlie morning star is Saturn. The evening star is Mars. Dolly Madison, the wife of President James Aladison, was born on this day m 1768. On this day in history: In 1902, Cuba became a republic as .American occupation under Gen.

HKbands were not included in the survey, but they apparently use some of the same tactics. That bemg the case, it may be that the key to wedded bUss is combat compatibility. It is obvious, for example, that two sulkers would Ije mis- mated and that hard object throwers should never marry soft object throwers. On the other hand, snarlers and yellers are made for each other. They have positive responses without vocal competition. Unless a computer can separate the door slammers from the drawer bangers, scientific matchmaking doesn't stand a chance. a worth-while job to do and who enjoys doing it. If you don't enjoy your work, you are in the wrong line. It is all right to grumble a little now and then but, if you really want to quit working, you're sick. When I see some of our teenagers wearing large celluloid buttons with the slogan "I HATE WORK" I cringe. I can only hope that they think this is a huge joke and that they do not take this motto seriously. In the words of Thomas Carlyle, "Blessed is he who has found his work; let him ask no other blessedness." What have our extra leisure hours provided thus far? The answer varies, hut in many cases they have made it possible for a man to take a second job so that he can buy a faster car. In the heavily populated areas that are ever expanding this leads to the frustration of traveling bumper to bumper and hub to huh. In other cases the new car has enabled the buyer to shave a few seconds off his race to a collision. The others increased leisure means more sodden hours watching violence on television. In this case it is not the diversion that is at fault but the use of it to the exclusion of the development of inner resources. Setting aside 20 or 30 minutes a day for contemplative thought or improving one's mind with great literature, music and art can heal a troubled spirit as no tranquilizer or miracle drug can do. Everyone should have a restful hobby, a place to pursue it and a special time for its enjoyment. The dictionary gives as one definition of "retreat" — a safe, quiet, secluded place. If ever each man needed such a place it is now. Many of us, in the turmoil that surrounds us, have actually become frightened of solitude. I believe we should try to recapture some of its healing propensities before it has completely vanished from the face of the earth. WHAT'S A PIGEON? CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y.
