facts Page 16 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MAY 24, 1965 Success of hospital shows Redlands cares Redlands today readies a milestone in community development with the gi-oundbreaking for the new five story tower addition to Redlands Community Hospital. The milestone is particularly significant for two reasons: 1. The immensity of the project. It is the largest single building project ever undertaken in the city. Total cost is estimated at about 5;3-million. The building contract of 52 ,358,769 is the largest ever let in Redlands. 2. The fact that the citizens of Redlands have been able to care for the hospital needs of the community with their own non-profit institution that is neither ta.x supported nor government subsidized. Redlands Community Hospital succeeds in fulfilling its vital role because it is a labor of love for so many people. Tlie Biblical tale of the Good Samaritan lies close to the surface in the minds of most of us and inspires all who give of themselves or of their funds to their hospital. The reward to these people is the knowldge tliat what they have done has in some way helped those wiio suffer, those who need tlie hospital bed and the care and comfort that it alone can provide. In this day of advance medical science people go to hospitals for a kind of treatment that was unknown even a decade ago. They go there confident that their doctor will work for tliem what llieir grandparents would have considered a miracle. And in most cases it works out that way. Our owm hospital has an unusually young and competent staff of doctors. They have built on high standards. The quality of health care they strive for, is a little-recognized fact of community life, yet it is another of the pluses that makes Redlands the kind of town it is. This biggest of all Redlands projects was put out to competitive bid and some of the largest and most experienced firms in California submitted bids. Against this competition the oldest Redlands firm, Donald, McKee and Hart won out by offering the lowest price. This is a source of great gratification to all who are connected with the hospital and is of immense help in arranging the important matters where confidence in the builder is of supreme moment. Today the financial campaign to raise $500.000 as the community's stake in the project is short of its goal. Leaders in the campaign believe that the goal can be reached. They arc rightfully confident from the response so far that the need will be met. Redlands can take pride in the achievement of its hospital. It measures the responsibility of oiu- town in a degree that it has never been measured before. Homing-in on garage doors In this complicated age, even staying in your own back yard won't necessarily keep you out of trouble, particulmiy if j'ou are one of those progi'essive homeowners who have radio-controlled garage doors. The Federal Aviation Agency has discovered that the equipment that operates the doors can be a hazai'd to flying by interfering with air navigation signals. Though they are receivers, they can generate signals like a small radio ti-ansmitter if their antennas are not sufficiently isolated. In one week in Los Angeles recently, the F'AA tracked down 5S offending garage door openers and shut them down. While most of the trouble has occun-ed near big airfields, some receivers are strong enough to be picked up by aircraft as far as 16 miles away. Thus it would be possible, says the FAA, for a pilot to home-in on somebody's garage and fly directly toward it—"conceivably with disastrous results." Tlie hazard works both ways. Tlie doors on one gai'age in the Midwest open or close every time a certain flight passes over. In other locations, signals from radio navigation aids have caused doors to flip-flop at all hours. Some pranksters have discovered a new sport in operating garage doors with transmitters as they pass by on the street. The FAA recommends that owners cut down garage door receiver antennas to the minimum needed for driveway operation. Or else get out and lift like the rest of us. — O.C. The Newsreel We all want to get the criminals off the streets. How about getting them up on the sidewalks whei-e the skateboard surfers can run over them?

MOORE "Order, decency and regularity must be preserved in a dignified public body." So said Henry M. Robert in the preface to his famed manual, "Robert's Rules of Order". Although the eminent parliamentarian died 42 years ago, his spirit was in full command of the Board of Regents of the University of California when they met at U.C.-Rivcr- side Friday. This felt-presence registered strongly with me because I had gone 10 the session to see how a Board of 24 members, meeting once a month, can possibly govern this extra-ordinarily complex institution. Seated around a huge, oblong lablc. the 22 members who answered the roll call preceded to their business with ulmasl formality. Because he is the Governor of California, Edmund G. Brown is automatically the presiding officer. In that role he constantly fights the irrepressible Irishman within himself —the Irishman who cannot resist frequent, humorous quips —by addressing each member by title and last name. He did not speak to his former secretary as "Fred", but as "Regent Dutlon". Nor did he let the discussion wander for more than a minute without insisting that the matter be crystalized in a motion. Keeping control, and keeping the discussion on the track, however, required but little el- fort from the Govei-nor. The Regents, in the main, are men and women of large affairs and they are accustomed to self- restraint. They speak only if necessary and then in brief words. If they have a motion to offer, it is likely that they have written it down in advance to make it concise and pointed. For this reason, an outsider who attends a Regents' meeting expecting fireworks finds that controversy — when it arises — is tame in comparison to the usual hometown fare. Those who were scathing in their criticism of the way in which the Forbes committee handled the Byrne report were careful, at the same time, to compliment William E. Forbes, the chairman, on his conscientious performance of a herculean task. Decency was preserved. .\ peculiarity of the Board is that they never .seem to be discussing the actual topic at hand. Rather, most of their discussion involves the best possible manner of dealing with the pending business. As you can quickly see in a Regents meeting, it is impossible to cover much ground in so large a meeting. Hence, the real deliberation is conducted within the committees responsible for the various concerns of the University. It is there that the discussion becomes open and the shuttlecock is batted back and forth across the net. During a one hour go-around on the Byrne report on the basic causes of student unrest al Berkeley — and what to do about it — 93 per cent of the discussion in the full board was on procedure. Unless you know what the Byrne report was about, you wouldn't even know what they were talking about. The real possibilities before the Regents were to accept committee reports; or return them to committee; or to turn them over to another committee; or to forward them to the President of the University for further analysis or implementation. Thus, the mills of the Regents grind slowly. It is no wonder that the conflict between the Berkeley students who demand instant reform and the ponderous Board of Regents is so slow of resolution.

They have made it triple-plated plain that what they want is not discussion but rather South Viet Nam. .Apparently they never got the message of the splinter in the Senate which had so long pictured them as tremblmg with eagerness for "negotiations" — if only bad old Uncle Sam would not be so warlike. The brief and now happily lifted suspension of American bombing against the nests of aggression in Communist North Viet Nam — a suspension for which the splinter had clamored to give the North A'ietnamese a chance to show how reasonable they could be — has accomplished precisely nothing. The Communists themselves remain curiously unconvinced of those essentially conciliatory intentions which the splinter had so earnestly attributed to them. They intend to do what they always intended, and what everybody save our little band of Senate foreign-policy experts and criers of "peace" always knew they intended. They intend to overrun South Vict Nam — and then perhaps to "negotiate" over the body of their victim. They had a least six previous opportunities for honest negotiations, including one offered by neutralist countries which not even the Senate splinter could describe as mere American stooges. Again, for the seventh time — or perhaps the eighth; one loses count — they have given the back of their hands to American softUners. Thus those Senators who had demanded a halt to an American bombing mission which was manifestly necesary to help defend South Viet Nam from unbroken Communist assault have now shown the quality of their wisdom. There is no joy in twitting them. For every one of them is a perfectly patriotic man — if also, in LIGHTER SIDE A dent, at least By DICK WEST I © 1965 ij NEA, Inc. "Let 's make a list of things that wil[ be o/fecterf by the txQise tax Qutl" WASHINGTON (UPU—I suggested that we all rise and give a standing ovation to the State Department's Bureau of Administration. .At a lime when the federal paperwork jungle has been growing by leaps and boimds, or al least by reams and bales, this bureau has turned in a commendable job of defoliation. During the past year, it managed to reduce by two the number of copies it makes of a certain type of message. Even Rep. John J. Rooney, D-N.Y., chairman of the House appropriations subcommittee that handles the bureau's budget, was impressed by the accomplishment. And Rooney is about as impressionable as a rooming house mattress. In order to appreciate the bureau's trend - reversing performance to the fullest, we must go back to the subcommittee's 1964 hearuigs. this columnist's view, a mortally wrong man. Still, the public is entitled to know, for reference when yet other proposals are made, the names of some of those Senators who in months past have in one damaging way or another snipe<l at a basic and bipartisan policy of three .American Presidents not to let armed Communism run lose. Of course they have had a perfect right to do this. B \i t their only atlternativcs would demonstrably have let down a South Vietnamese people hard- pressed enough as things stand. They are such Senators as Wayne Morse of Oregon, Frank Church of Idaho, Albert Gore of Tennessee, William Fulbright of Arkansas and Mike Mansfield of Montana. Anyhow, one gain has emerged. Only the most credulous can continue to endorse the cliche that the way to bring an open aggressor to an honorable conference table is to tell him in advance he need never stop his aggression. An other cliches are now receiving attention. One is that our bombing has made us desperately unpopular "in Asia." Another is that we are identifying ourselves as bad White men attacking good dark men. These, too, will wither under the light of reality now shining upon them. 11 is a light cast by the .Asians Ihemseives in the recent meeting of the Southeast .Asia Treaty Organization. And it is cast by such diverse and on-the-spot observes as the 1960 Republican Vice-Presidential candidate, Henry Cabot Lodge, and a Democratic Senator from Connecticut, Thomas Dodd. No, the Asians themselves— men of integrity such as Thanat Khoman of Thailand- are not denouncing us [or oppose aggression. They are thanking God that we do oppose it. So arc the Australians and New Zca- landers, who can hardly be waved aside as warmongers. Even minds enchanted with wonderful, wistful pacifist dreams of a world made safe without sacrifice or struggle surely cannot go that far. (Copyright, 19(;5, by United Feature Syndicate. Inc.) THE WELL CHILD Proper diet, good example, aid the overweight child By Dr. Waj-ne G. Brandstadt At that time the bureau was seeking funds to hire a duplicating machine operator to augment the 40 operators it already employed. In justifying the request, the bureau told the subcommittee that on a single day it made 83.646 copies of messages coming into the State Department. Rooney was impressed by that figure, too. As he said later, "we almost fell out of our chairs." Some of the incoming messages were of the "eyes only" variety—that is, they contained classified information addressed to the secretary of state and marked for his eyes only. It turned out that the bureau had been making 10 copies of the "eyes only" messages. Rooney wasn't so much impressed by that as he was puzzled. He had some trouble understanding why there had to be 10 copies of a message that Overweight children become overweight adults unless steps are taken to bring their weight down. About 25 percent of our teen-aged population has been found to be overweight. The proportion is higher in the girls than in the boys. 11 has been amply proved that these youngsters arc shortening their lives by carrying this excess fat.

Let us now move forward to the 1965 hearings. Rooney, having regained a firm position in the center of his chair, again took up tlie matter with John W. Coffey, and official of the bureau. "How many copies of 'eyes only' messages do you make for the secretary today?" he inquired. Coffey replied that "we have altered the designation." They are no longer referred to as "eyes only" messages. Now they are called "no distribution" messages. And since there is no distribution, the bureau only makes eight copies. "That is quite an accomplishment," Rooney commented. I couldn't agree more. .After all you can't have a clearing in (he jungle unless somebody breaks a few twigs. ble. These tend to work in a vicious cycle. As the child becomes more obese he becomes more upset or embarrassed by his deviation from the norm and he seeks solace in eating. At the same time the child becomes more wilh-drawn and less interested in physical activity. Before anything can be done to reduce his weight he must have a strong desire to help himself (and f don't mean to a candy bar). No one can do his dieting f o r him b u t mother can do much to smooth the way. Feed him several small meats a day rather than three large ones. Offer him foods that are high in protein and low in sugars, starches and fats. Cut away the fat from the meat before serving. Give the child snacks of low-calory fruits and skim milk. Don't rely on appetite-depressing drugs to solve the problem. Remember that an obese child who is growing docs not need to lose weight. Just keep him from gaining and his normal growth will bring him into line. Stress the advantages of a trim appearance. Praise him for small successes b u t avoid shaming or scolding for failures, ores. Serving meals on a smaller plate will make it appear that he is getting more than he actually is. Help him find satisfactions in physical activity rather than eating. Provide a peaceful environment by avoiding emotional crises and never let him doubt for a minute that he is a cherished and valued member of the household. .Above all. set a good example by not overeating yourself. Obesity in children is a many- sided problem for which there is no single, simple solution. The diet you provide must give your child all the essential nutrients but in controlled amounts. Remember, t h e child's future health and happiness depend on it.
