By FRANK E. MOORE As a connoisseur of official meetings, I drove over to tfie University of California at Riverside yesterday afternoon to sample a session of tlie Board of Regents. No pedestrian that I met on the campus could tell me where the Humanities building was. However, the place of the meeting was easily recognized when Subscription telewsion is a legitimate busi- J ^^f^'' ^..'^.""P'? ^?^Bn stu- ness.

It was hatched by the movie theater industry, There" were a tew beatniks put on the ballot by hired petition circulators, and "sold" to the public with a fear campaign. It carried 2-1 on November 2. This measure was a violation of the intent of the federal Anti-Trust Act, but for technical reasons the attack on Proposition 15 had to be made on Constitutional grounds. In defending the measure before the Superior Court, the movie industry—the ones who retained a monopoly over pay television—charged that Subscription TV was tlie potential monopolist. This classic case of double-talk was rejected by Judge Irving H. Perluss of Sacramento: "In tlie final analysis", he said, "the charges here made could have been made by the radio industry when television was made for the home and by producers of silent pictures on among them—beards and bare feet—but most of them looked lilce ordinary college types. Presently, I found myself being introduced to Dr. Ivan Hinderaker, Chancellor at Riverside. Watching the students he laughingly said that he had borrowed a picket sign, joined the march and had his picture taken. The sign read: "The University is not a playpen. Student government is not a sand bo .N." Those words were coined by Bob Holcomb who had been student body president until he resigned in protest against administration restrictions. '•I agreed with Bob's words so I had no objection to carrying the sign," he chuckled.

A secretary also Prof. Kahin might spend more time on teaching modem history and less on charging the U.S. government with seeking to e.xtend our national self-interest in a part of the world wh.ere we don't belong. Lesson No. 1: No nations, no peoples, are free today as a result of Communist support in realization of their nationalistic aspirations. Every newspaper reader knows that. Lesson No. 2: The Spanish-American War of 1898 was America's first excursion into global "imperialism." The ensuing military occupation required years of bloody fighting before guerrillas were subdued. All of the moral char'ges and military arguments being directed against the U.S. in Viet Nam now could have been made against us in the Phillipines then. Today, the Philippines is a free and independent nation. Lesson No. 3: In 1945, the United States utterly defeated Japan and imposed its own ideas of how a country should be governed. Today, Japan is a free and independent nation, the most advanced in Asia and one of the most respected in the world. Far from being dominated ideologically by the United States, it is, as a responsible free nation should be, often an outspoken—but constructive—critic of American actions. Far from being bound in economic vassalage to Wall Street imperialists, it is a tough competitor.

As meeting lime approached, the Regents wandered in and for once no big-name person attracted any notice at all. Gov. Edmimd Brown went to his chair, at the center of the head of the table. Soon, Dr. Clark Kerr, president of the University, sat on his left, and Edward Carter, chairman of the board, on his right. As a group, the Regents look like important businessmen and lawyers. And, many of them are just that, Wr. Carter is the head of the Broadway Stores chain, and. incidentally, the man who really put over the Los Angeles County Art Museum Project. Ed Pauley, the big oil man, is known in Redlands through the days when he came here as a co-owner of the Rams. Norton Simon is the corporate genius and art collector who made international news recently by successfully bidding for a Rembrandt at a London auction. There are three women—Mrs. Edward Heller of Atherton who looked like a character since she was wearing Benjamin Franklin spectacles. Mrs. Dorothy B.

But the growth of the small feeder airlines around the West in the years since World War II has been linked closely with the unprecedented growth of this region. The names are known best to the people of small cities and towns: Bonanza, Frontier, West Coast, Pacific, and Trans Texas. Not long ago I sat in the Seattle office of Nick Bez, an old- timer who owns floating fish canneries in Washington and in Alaska, but has given more and more of his lime to his West Coast Airlines, which serves about 70 towns and cities between Calgary, San Francisco, Salt Lake City and Great Falls, Mont. When he showed me boarding figures for the current month, it was with an air of almost parental concern. BeUingham had boarded 64 passengers. Olympia, the capital of Washington, had boarded only 28 — less than one a day. Bez believes his line serves more small towns than any airline in the nation. He keeps at it in good cheer and deep faith and with federal subsidy. "The people will keep coming," he said. "Some days I think I'd like to give away a dozen of these towns that we serve, but then I remind myself that this is oxir last frontier." He would get arguments from some of the nation's other feeder line presidents, who seem convinced that they are operating in the nation's last frontier too. West Coast has grown steadily in the 17 years since it was founded, and recenUy has been getting a new look: a major overhaul of everything from its table of organization to the paint on the planes. There's a popular new "Jetbus" commuter service between Portland and Seattle. But it is West Coast which you take if you are flying into the country of Hell's Canyon or the Seven Devils Mountains, or if you are skiing at Sun Valley or hiking in Glacier National Park. You take Bez' line if you need to fly into isolated towns like Bend or Burns or Baker or Lakeview in Oregon, or Moscow and Lewiston and Coeur d'.Alene or Burley in Idaho. Bonanza is better knowTi in Southern California. Its routes are between Los Angeles and San Diego. Las Vegas, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Reno. If you are flying into the Grand Canyon or Bryce Canyon, you are hkely to be on the sleek little F-27A prop-jets of Bonanza, which retired the last of its piston-engine planes back in 19G0. Edmund Converse is founder and president. .•Ml the feeder lines owe their existence to 'he significant con­ gressional action shortly after V.'orld War II which put 370 smaller cities on airline routes, moving Main Street toward the jet age. There are 13 local airlines operating now in the continental United States. Few of them generate enough passenger business to provide large fast planes or elaborate on-board service. But their service records are exceptional. In a recent year, 7 of the top 12 domestic airlines in terms of on- time performance were local airlines, and only 5 v ere the big trunk airlines. To make possible air service to small cities, it has been necessary so far for the federal government to subsidize them: last year by close to .570 million. It is the assumption of Congress that these airlines are vital in developing indu .slry and tourism for the generally isolated areas they serve. Pacific Air Lines is another of the lines familiar to Cali- tornians. It ranges from San Diego to Portland, but with local stops between the major cities so that the line does not compete with major carriers. You take Pacific if you are headed to Vandenbcrg Air Force Base or Paso Robles. to Inyokern or Palmdale. It stops at llary.s- ville-Yuba City, at Chico, at Santa Rosa, at Redding, at Eureka and Crescent City. The wildest region served by any domestic airline, however, is the Rocky Moimtain ridgepole flown by the planes of Frontier Airlines. Its president, Lewis W. Dymond, likes to note that while his region contains 30 per cent of the continental United States, it has only two per cent of the population. It is possible to fly Frontier almost from border to border: from El Paso to Havre and Glasgow in the far north Montana plains. Although such characteristics aren't measured, the Frontier routes seem often to provide the most turbulent air, catching the updrafts and downdrafts of the Rocky Mountain slopes. Frontier, like most of these lines, is phasing out of the workhorse DC-3, and rebuilding its Convair Liners with jet-prop engines. But still there is the charm of the lower-flying, lower-powered aircraft from which one can see the territory. There is no lovelier territory in America. One could spend three or four iays flying from border to border with Frontier if one sought to drop in on hard-to-reach mountain towns. One route from El Paso would give you stops at Alamogordo, Albuquerque and Santa Fe in New Mexico; Alamosa, Durango, Gunnison, Montrose, Grand Junction and Denver in Colorado; Cheyenne, Laramie, Rawlings, Rock Springs, Riverton-Lander, Worland and Cody in Wyoming; and Billings, Lewiston, Great Falls and Havre in Montana. Whenever I soar fast and high in the transcontinental jet, I feel slightly cheated. After all, how many of those towns have you seen? By Arthur Benjamin Anderson THE ALMANAC Today is Saturday. May 22, the 142nd day of 1965 with 223 to follow. The moon is approaching its last quarter. The morning star is Saturn. The evening star is Mars. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, English novelist, was born on this day in 1859. He was the creator of "Sherlock Holmes." On this day in history: In 1807, former Vice President Aaron Burr went on trial for "treason" in Richmond, Va. Burr was acquitted the following August of charges of plotting to set up a state independent of the U.S. government. In 1819, an American-made steamship, the Savannah, set out for the first transatlantic voyage by that type of vessel. In 1868, the great train robbery took place as seven members of the Reno gang held up a train at Marshfield, Ind. The robbery netted 98-thousand dollars in cash. In 1924, after the body of 13-year-old Bobby Franks was found in a ditch outside Chicago, investigation led to the arrest of Nathan Leopold, Jr., and Richard Loeb. A thought for the day: Plato said: "Human nature cannot know the mystery of an art without experience." This w-eek it's "Aly," a biography by Leonard Slater. The ideal of the "great lover" —the Don Juan, the Casanova— is nowhere so strong, so well recognized, as in the two countries that produced Aly KJian,— Italy and India. His mother was Italian, his father Indian. This indoctrination from two parent cultures rc,<:ulted in the character that startled .'America some years back, by publicly "rushing" Rita Hayworth, America's then-reigning love-goddess, —despite that face he already had a wife of his own. When he burst on the American scene he was already the talk of Europe, South .America and the Orient. He was the extreme type of the rich playboy. He besieged women—and women besieged him. He had his own airplane, used long-distance lines freely, and flew to an endless succession of dates all over Europe. The switchboard at the Ritz, in London, became h i s phone-answering agency. He would call in from this or that country to take the names and telephone numbers of beautiful or titled lady friends who wanted to talk to him. He was unique in one respect: he could do no wrong! By the standards of his people, the Is- mailis, (a heretic sect among the Moslems,) he was the son of a living successor to the Prophet,—wtich, to some members of the faith, made him a god. They loved to read of his racing stables, his friendships with the great in many countries,—and his avoidance of alcoholic beverages. Surprisingly, in World War II he served with distinction in the American army, under Henry Cabot Lodge. He was decorated twice. Lodge said .Aly was courageous, physically hardy. In the war, he was immensely popular with the men. The book quotes a vice-president of Olin Chemical Corporation, who said flatly, "Of all my friends, I enjoyed Aly the most. He was a real man. He had three qualities: physical vitality, hurnility, and love of people. Money meant nothing, to Aly." When, shortly before his death, (—he was killed in an automobile accident in Paris, in I960—) he served as representative of Pakistan in the United Nations assembly, the lounges buzzed with conversation about him. Everyone wanted to talk to him. As a result, he did a good job for Pakistan. In this biography you learn not only about Aly Khan, but about the south of France, the Moslems of Bombay, the titled "county" families in England— and (in the part dealing with Aga Khan, Aly's father,) about La Bella Epoque, that time before World War I when fashion and wealth were super-glamorous, progress was inevitable, and war was something you found in history books. This is a first-book by a man with twenty years experience in journalism. It is well researched, lively, well written. A subject that, in other hands, might be material for a movie magazine, is here treated with good taste, in an entertaining way. One Minute Pulpit I have applied all this to myself and .Apollos for your benefit, brethren, that you may learn by us to live according to scripture that none of you may be puffed up in favor of one against another.—I Cor. 4:6.
