REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA Page 16 MAY 25, 1965 RIght-to-work generates heat—'Californians know President Johnson proposed on Wednesday that Congress nullify the right-to-work laws now prevailing in 19 states. On Monday, Sec- retai-y of Labor Wirtz appeai'ed before a House subcommittee, testifying against the state bans on compulsory union membership. At once he touched off a shower of sparks, for this is the nation's hottest labor issue. Ever since the election, the foes of nullification have been saying that the President would have to take this position. Labor helped deliver the landslide for him in November. He could not turn down the unions' key demand if he wanted to. That \iew point is pungently expressed in the editorial cartoon on this page. This is an idealogical issue and will not be determined by debate but rather by political power. Proponents of right-to-work will argue that an employe should be free to join or not join a union—that he should not have to belong in order to get or to hold a job. They will say that contracts between employers and labor organizations which require union membership of all employes should be prohibited. From the labor point of view, the aim of the "right-to-work" movement is to desti'oy collective bargaining, weaken responsible unionism and destroy union security. Since those wl:o hold to this opinion have a majority representation in Congress, they are likely to win. But this would have no direct effect on labor contracts in California. In the November 195S election an initiati\'e constitutional amendment was put on the ballot. U.S. Senator William F. Knowland made endorsement of it the keystone of his campaign for governor. This insured total disaster for the Republican ticket which he headed. Edmund Brown beat him for Go\-ernor. Clair Engle, Democrat, defeated Gov. Goodwin Knight, Republican, for U.S. Senator. The Democrats won solid control of both the Assembly and Senate for the first time in this century. The initiative was defeated 3-2. As a state political issue in California right- to-work is as dead as slavery. Where trouble begins The mischief in temporarily raising the gasoline tax to meet a one-shot need has quickly come to light. Earlier in the current session, the Legislature adopted an emergency measure to raise the gas tax one cent. The stated pui-pose of the bill was to quickly get S58 million to rebuild flood-devastated roads in Northern California. Senator Randolph Collier, whose bailiwick is in the far north, rammed the bill through the Legislature. Co-authoring his measure was Senator Thomas Rees of Los Angeles County. Senator Rees, it turns out, also had a scheme. He would authorize the Southern California Rapid Transit District to raise the motor vehicle license fee in Los Angeles County by one-half of one per cent. The tax would be authorized for one year only. It would raise S15 million to complete engineering on a transit rail system. When the showdowm came last Tuesday in the Senate Transportation Committee, it was defeated. Opposition of Sen. Collier, tlie committee chairman and a powerful influence on transportation legislation, was the key man in keeping the Rees bill bottled up. Collier argued that tlie Supemsors in Los Angeles county already had authority to levy such a tax. Furthermore, he said: "I don't see that the motor vehicle driver is responsible for building a transit system." Any softer Senator than Collier would have supported the Rees bill on the normally sacred political nile: "You scratch my back; I'll scratch yours." Because he didn't play the game that way, Collier is now the subject of Rees' wrath. The incident shows that once the gas tax is rasied as a favor to one special interest in the state, the stage is set for a turn-about favor to another. The way to stop the game is to never let it start. The Newsreel Men can't understand wliy it takes a woman so long to shop, but it isn't easy to find something just like what everybody else is wearing, only different. The mottoes a man hangs on his office walls may be a key to his chai'acter, but don't depend on it. Bedsheets now -come in beautiful and colorful stripes and floral designs, but we doubt if they have done much to make a Ku Klux meeting any more attractive. New York's mayoralty election looks as though it may do more than the fair to make the town a summer festival. The proposed cut in excise taxes is hailed by economic leaders and by Tillie, who figures that it means the more she buys the more she'll save. The nice thing about living in a neighborhood of golfers is that you can vai-y the usual, "Good evening," with, "What did you shoot today?"

With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore "This may shed light on the use of tomato juice to de-perfume dogs which have battled with skunks," writes Howard R. Marsh. 1638 Garden street. "You ' seemed somewhat skeptical of this treatment in your account of Little Applejack, the pet skunk at the Mountain Station of the Palm Springs Tramway. "My daughter, who lives outside of Boston, raises golden retrievers as an avocation. These, as you know, are very large long-haired dogs. One of them, the largest, mi.xed with a skunk in the woods and immediately reported defeat by howling at the kitchen door. ••My daughter called Harvard University, where her husband is employed, and reached t h e head of the appropriate department. He informed her the best deodorant to use under the circumstances was tomato juice. ••My daughter stood the dog in the kitchen sink but failed to find tomato juice in her ice bo.\. She did locate two quart cans of tomatoes, however, and emptied them over the dog, expecting this treatment to be even more effective. '•You know what a long-haired dog does when a couple of quarts of cold liquid is emptied on his back. If you don't know, he shakes himself violently. The resultant shower bath of tomato pulp, tomato skins and tomato juice not only covered my daughter but splattered three wails and the ceiling of the kitchen. '•The dog was summarily banished to the barn where it received a minimum of attention for several days. However, by the time the kitchen walls were cleaned and redecorated it was found that the dog could be allowed around civilized people. "Is that proof enough for you of the value of the tomato treatment'.'" We warned yoit Thursday I hat when travelling west on West Stale you had better keep watching the sign posts. Beyond Tennessee — with no warning to the unwary—the name changes to Citrus avenue. We should have written Ihe column a day earlier and supplied it to the hearing on railroad crossing signals conducted here by the Public Utilities Commission. The location being argued was the Southern Pacific crossing of Tennessee. (That's the Edison corner.) '•Just a minute, gentlemen" exclaimed Kent C. Rogers, the presiding officer. "I don't seem to get the name straight. Along what street do the tracks lie?" Well, said Frank 0. Haymond, Jr., PUG spokesman — that's a puzzlement. Some maps say "State", others say "Citrus". Quien sabe'? No man to be caught with his and/or clauses down, SP Attorney Radolph Karr forged ahead. "Now on Stale street, sometimes Citrus ..." he declared. And on each following reference, for a time, he played it safe giving the supposedly correct name and the alias. Finally, the boys got down to cases and reached an understanding. At the Tennessee crossing, the easterly three quarters of the intersection is within Redlands and is, there- lore. State street. The westerly quarter is in the county and is, therefore. Citrus avenue. It seems to us that fixing the precise point at which the name changes is something like finding the North Pole for the first time. They ought to take a Golden Spike and drive it in the S.P. tie at that exact spot. One Minute Pulpit But Je.sus came and touched them, saying. "Rise, and have no fear."—Matthew 17:7.

Last weet / declared bankruptcy'." WASHINGTON (UPI) — Reaction in the U.S. capital to the ominous news of Russia's latest scientific breakthrough has, on the whole, been remarkably restrained. 1 am referring, of course, to the claim by Soviet scientists that they have discovered a way to make synthetic caviar that tastes and smells like the real thing. Obviously, the prospect that the Soviet Union may one day be able to blanket the world with mass-produced ersatz fish eggs has far-reaching implications for this country. Thus far, however, the federal government has made no move to seize the railroads, which is usually the first step after an emergency arises. Nor has President Johnson asked for television time to explain the crisis. Even Congress has remained By WILLIAM S. WHITE WASHINGTON —To those who like to watch the spinning of po-- litical wheels within wheels, the New York mayoralty campaign now opening is a spectacle to make the eyes reel in a splendor of dizziness. Here is the Republican party putting forward a standard bearer. Rep. John Lindsay, so glamorous, so authentically liberal that his success would vastly dim the luster of both the present liberal G.O.P. bosses of New York State, Gov. Nelson Rockefeller and Sen. Jacob Javits. Nevertheless, they must and do now vie in proclaiming immaculate devotion and unqualified loyalty to a candidate who in the Mayor's office could within months quite overturn the Republican power structure, with himself at or very near the top. The protege, Lindsay, could easily become something like the patron to those who are now his patrons. Rockefeller and Javits. To be sure, a victory for Lindsay over the sitting Democratic Mayor, Robert Wagner, would be of some momentary advantage to Rockefeller. No doubt it would assist the Governor in his own campaign for re-election next year. Still, in the longer run it would at minimum force Rockefeller to share with Lindsay, as already he must share with Javits, a national leadership of the G. 0. P. left wing that once was Rockefeller's alone. As to Javits, a Lindsay in the Mayor's office would bring to a jarring end the Senator's frank aspirations for the Republican Vice - Presidential nomination in 1968. For if the G.O.P. at that time should wish to look eastward for a liberal second man on the ticket. Lindsay would have the capital advantages of being both a newer face and the newest giant killer witliin his party. Moreover, yet other seeds of unavoidable trouble are being planted by both Rockefeller and Javits in their necessary sponsorship of Lindsay. For the only real hope he can have of beating Wagner lies In the theme of his youth and freshness. But the more these qualities are gravely saluted — as they must calm. Which is generally a bad sign. Anytime Congress remains calm it usually means nobody sees anything to get excited about. Fearful that such might be the ease in this instance, I resolved to call up a couple of lawgivers for comment. For reasons too subtle to explain, I decided that Sen. Ross Bass, D-Tenn., and Rep. Otis G. Pike, D-N.Y., would be the most appropriate sources. (There is no congressman named Sturgeon.) I was unable to reach Bass, but Pike quickly set my mind at rest. He made it clear that some congressmen do indeed grasp the significane of the fish egg breakthrough. "I have given this matter very serious consideration and I am concerned about what it will lead to," Pike reported. "My boncern, however, is not be—the more middle-aged and unfresh Rockefeller and Javits must inevitably become by con- U-ast. To the Democrats, too, the miances of tiiis mayoralty affair are dancing all over the lanscape. The decision of Robert Kennedy to become a New Yorker and enter the Senate last year was obviously based on national ambitions that seemed unattainable from his home state of Massachusetts. His first need, once he got into the Senate, would be to become the unchallenged top man within the New York State Democratic hierarchy. All the same — like Rockefeller and Lindsay on the otlior side — Kennedy must go all (he way for Wagner, or risk being put down as unacceptably ambitious personally. .And in doing so must promote h i s only surviving rival of consequence. .A Wagner returned to City Hall would be formidable. Kennedy could not begin to speak for the whole of the giant, crazy-quilt Democratic party of New York State. Control would be in the hands not of one man but of a two-man regency. And in New York politics the city Is a dog which has no trouble whatever in wagging the upstate Democratic tail. And the city's big man traditionally is the Mayor. Thus, not merely one city and state and one political year — 1965 — are involved in this mayoralty race. Involved directly, for the Republicans in 1966 is the statehouse, and, in 1968, the struggle for the Republican Vice-Presidential prize. Involved, for the Democrats, is 1972. Assuming President Johnson stands f o r re-election in 1968. both designations on the national ticket will be in his control — his own and that for the Vice-Presidency. In 1972. however, the whole thing will be open, and if Robert Kennedy is in fact to make his expected move, this will be the year for It. He would be a far stronger claimant if in the meantime ha had long stood in stark eminence as the sole boss of his party in New York. (Copyright. 1965, by United Feature SjTidicate, Inc.) DOCTOR'S MAILBAG No sure way to curb locker-room infections By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt Q—As a school nurse I see kids with plantar warts and athlete's foot. Since our school now has a swimmmg pool, what measures should be taken to prevent the spread of these infections'? A—.•Mhlete's foot, or ringworm, and plantar warls are spread by contact with (he locker-room floor and not from the water. Individual resistance appears to be the determining factor in who develops these Infections. Attempts to control their spread by keeping m- feeted pupils out of the pool have not been successful. Chemical foot baths for bathers leaving the pool have been tried but this has also been showTi to be useless. Some help can be derived from having aU swimmers wear their own private slippers or sandals at all times except when actually in the water. Daily cleaning and disinfection of the locker room floor is helpful. Bath towels should be boiled after each use. Q—What causes hives'? What tests are needed to make a diagnosis'? What is the treatment? A—Hives are cau.'.cd by allergy — usually 10 an article of diet or something in contact with the skin. Food allergies are determined by carefully supervised diets that eliminate one or more foodstuffs for four or five days. Contact allergies are tested by patch tests. The suspected irritant is applied to a small piece of blotting paper and held against the test area based on the possibility that Russia will sell synthetic caviar to the masses, and thus win over the undeveloped countries to their side. "It is my belief that people who eat caviar do so, not because they like it, but because they derive a masochistic pleasure from chomping on little fish eggs. "But if the Soviets can imitate the eggs of the sturgeon, it is only a question of time until they will be able to produce synthetic pigeon eggs. "And if they can do that with pigeons. they can do it with chickens. So what we will actually be facing in the long run are synthetic hen eggs. "Something like that could upset our entire economy. It's one more weapon that the Communists are using against us in the cold war." As they say at the Pentagon, understanding the problem is half the battle. with adhesive tape for 24 hours. Although various antlhista- minlc drugs will give some relief, the only satisfactory treatment is to discover the causa and avoid It. Q—My sister was operated on for Kaiiler's disease. What is the cause? How serious is it? Can it be cured? .A—Kahler's disease or multiple myeloma is a disease of unknown cau.se. It is manifested by painful tumors in the bones and results in a severs anemia. Recent work on the treatment of this disease shows promise. NSC-1026, a drug that is still experimental, relieves the pain. Cyclophospha mide, a drug that is available with a doctor's prescription, halts the progress of the disease in some victims. Care- fidly regulated doses of sodium floride combined with calcium lactate have been u.sed Mith success In others. The best results reported to date, however, ha\'e been with mel- phalan, a derivative of nitrogen mustard gas. THE Today is Tuesday. May 25, the 145th day of 1965 with 220 to follow. The moon Is approaching its new phase. The morning star Is Saturn. The evening star is Mars. Ralph Waldo Emerson, the American poet and essayist, was born on this day in 1803. On this day in history: In 1935, Babe Ruth hit the last home run and 714th of his career at Forbes Field where his team—the Boston Braves- were playing the Pittsburgh Pirates. In 1949, Chinese Communists entered Shanghai as Nationalist troops abandoned defense of the city. In 1964, the Supreme Court unanimously held unconstitutional the closmg of public schools to avoid desegregation in Prince Edward County, Va. A thought for the day: W. S. Gilbert wrote in one of his operettas — "I see no objection to stoutness, in moderation." CAST ADDITIONS HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Director Mark Robson has added George Segal.
