The recent Central American visit to Costa Rica was accompanied by pre-: cautions quite without precedent They went far beyond any ever taken previously There were, of course, the usual Secret Service precautions with a very Strong group of plain clothes agents on hand. In addition there are Washington reports that there were aircraft carriers offshore on both Gulf and" Pacific sides with Marine paratroops ready to spring Into action at any sign of trouble. There were enough of them to have taken the country over in half an hour. Presidential helicopters were within a few minutes' ride and could have snatched the President and put him aboard a carrier if necessary. En route home the President's special airplane was accompanied most of the way by a flight of eight F105 twice-the-speed-of-sound fighter planes with tanker1 aircraft which refuelled' the comparatively short-range fighters en route. Incidentally they put on quite a show for the President, doing their refuelling quite a sight in the brilliant Caribbean sunset just off to the right of the Presidential plane so that Mr. Kennedy would . have the opportunity to watch the spectacular operation. A special communications airplane also flew along to the rear of the Presidential aircraft to make certain that there should not be an instant during which he would be out of touch with the White "House. Big' deal? You bet! ; ' ' ; Wjfe House Travel Plans Presidential travel plans are getting quite a going-over these daysl He Is due to come to California next month with a weekend layover at Palm Desert. There is a lot of talk of a possible jaunt, a separate ' one, to Hawaii Purpose unknown. The "big deal" of the summer Is his" mid-June journey, to Europe. Kennedy plans are never quite certain until the last minutes and, since .he is a no-waits-and-no-delays man by nature, it had been expected that no matter where he went he would make his usual here-today-gone-tomorrow sort of junket. Not so, apparently. Latest dope plans are never firm' until ,the last min- ' ute with this restless, impulsive administration calls for three days in Rome, perhaps another day or two visiting northern Italy, three days in Bonn probably Including a visit to Berlin,, then two or three days in London with the off-chance of a brief ie drop-in at Madrid. Expectation among those who are considered to be good guessers calls for a trip of perhaps ten days altogether. Don't bet on lt.pEyerything is subject to change with the itchy New Frontiersmen. Still Handy With the Quips President Kennedy is still doing plenty of quipping congressional difficulties and criticisms obviously haven't soured his somewhat irreverent sensayuma. His remarks at the recent dinner of the Gridiron Club ire, as usual, made with "no reporters present" But . es always happens, somebody starts quoting these tff-the-record remarks a day or so later. The President' is said to have remarked about the recent visit of Khrushchev's son-in-law Alexei Adzhubei to the " Vatican that the Soviet and the USA are now "eye-ball-to-eyeball across the Holy See" . and accused Adzubei of "hiding Marxist Bibles In tha Vatican."

Foes of San Gorgonio Skiing Give Their Side Mechanized Development Seen as Step Costly to Back-to-Nature Recreation ' BY HENRY SUTHERLAND Opponents of a move toiover wilderness areas vest- open the Mt. San Gorgonio Wild Area for a downhill skiing development seek to halt a process which began 470' years ago, the day after Columbus made his landfall. "The vanishing of the wilderness has been a long process of nibbling," says Robert Marshall of the Sierra Club, which leads opposition. "It is still going on to day." ' - . . Marshall"; is conservation chairman of the club's Southern Section. "This attempt to take San Gorgonio is just one more nibble among the many big-i ger nibbles in progress all over America," he says. "Our Third of Five Fart wilderness is dwindling toward nothing, and it can never be replaced." Ironies involved in pale face inheritance of the Indian's long, losing -battle' to save the wilds, along with the Indian recourse .of ap peal to the "Great White Fa ther" in Washington, are not lost on the Sierrans. , . ' Skiers are currently paging an aggressive campaign1 before Congress for amendment of the Wilderness Bill to sanction development of a ski resort on slopes of the big mountain, Southern Cal ifornia s tallest, in the an Bernardino National Forest.1 The Sierra. Club, founded! by John Muir in 1892 to "preserve the scenic resources of the United States,", is one of the major advocates of the bill. Marshall says: ' "The big objective of1 the Wilderness Bill is to stop the nibbling.

Two years ago, the State of California plucked Yorkj out of the Pentagon (where he was chief of defense research, made him a chancellor and sent him to La Jolla to begin the University of California at San Diego.

He continues: "In the early days these wild, rough areas were con sidered the poorest parts of our country. That is the only reason we still have them, and they are all that i3 left of the Great American wil derness. -: . v ' "But lumbermen, grazers, miners and petroleum inter ests now covet them, too, and it is they who are fight ing the Wilderness Bill. "Opposition to the bill Is based solely, on the fact that it would strengthen the sta tus of the wilderness areas. Opponents simply hope to get around the law and gain the land for p r l v a t e exploitation." Recreationisls Divided Marshall says the San Gor gonio controversy is "part of this same movement," but that: "In a sense it contains the greatest , irony of all. Past conflicts always have -been between commercial land us ers and recreatiociists. But here we have recreationists fighting each other." iy no means all skiers fa vor tows and lifts in the wild area, according to Marshall. "Many are on our side.' he' says.

Levy told the officers he was given the huge painting by Bob (Red) Hare, missing proprietor of the coffee house, in lieu of pay for some decorating work he did at the Insomniac. After he read in newspapers that Oda's owner, Byron Stevens, an art . collector, had reported the nude missing, Levy called police headquarters and agreed to relinquish the painting. New Television Station Begins Operation Here BY CECIL SMITH Live television, a rarity these days, came back to town Monday night with the opening of the new UHP interracial station KIIX (Chan nel 22). It was both live and live ly, normally beset with open ing night jitters, filled with technical mishaps but a Dot of fun. The station went on the air from its gaily painted studio at 2320 W Washington BlvtL, a former automo bile showroom, for a 4i hour opening session. ; There were no formal cere monies. The Rev. C. Dubois Tolbert opened the telecast with a prayer, and announcer Bob de Coy introduced the station, saying it is designed to serve the Ne gro population of this area There was only one "formal" program a children's show conducted by Mrs. Shirley Jones. De Coy introduced various personalities who will con duct regular shows on the station, including Dick Bass of the Rams, who will han dle sports, and Verne Steven son, who will present a 3- hour- "Jazz Festival" each Saturday night This is the second Los Angeles UHF station designed for a special audience to begin telecasting in the last six months.

Howard Holtzendorff, the authority's executive director, made the charge in a bitter 21 -page statement he read to City Council's gov ernmental efficiency committee. "It is one thing for the mayor to destroy employee morale and interfere with the orderly administration of city departments but quite another thing for him to do the same thing with a state agency," he said.

Probe Widening The widening probe, undertaken on the basis of charges leveled by minority commissioner Leo A.

Physicians attending the 92nd annual meeting of the California Medical Assn. at the Ambassador heard a run down Monday on progress in detecting and treating the disease. The most recent work was described by Dr. Laurance W. Kinsell of Oakland, na tionally known dietary ex pert, who told how a high fat diet combined with oral drugs may halt tha progression of diabetes in juveniles and perhaps even allow in sulin-producing cells to re generate. He explained at a press conference that juveniles usually suffer diabetes more severely than older persons. They also usually fail to respond when given the new oral drugs and. require in sulin injections instead.

Blodgett that the mayor's office financed a trip to Washington for two Housing Authority representatives in order to withhold information from Holtzendorff and his as sistant, Miss Barbara Rosien, because of their pending law suit against the authority. In his statement, Holtzen dorff asked the council's cooperation in removing administration of the Housing Authority from the "local political interference, domination and control of the mayor." Points to Mayor The mayor, he asserted, is "personally and directly responsible" for inducing Blodgett and the other three new commissioners he appointed last July to attempt to break the employment contracts held by Holtzendorff and Miss Rosien. This is the action the two authority officers have attempted to halt through their pending lawsuit. Holtzendorff also branded as "malicious, false and defamatory" statements mada by Blodgett that the author ity's office building had been wired with listening devices and that its operational re-, serve fund had become a' cookie jar for outrageous and improper expenditures."

A high-fat diet, he said, gives the overworked pancreas, where insulin is pro duced, a resting period which he believes may allow the organ to regenerate. The pancreas is rested be cause a high-fat diet eliminates the necessity of obtain ing calories from carbohy drates. Insulin is required in large amounts to metaboliz carbohydrates. In a series of 13 juvenile patients receiving the high-fat diet, four have shown the ability to produce enough insulin to make In jections unnecessary, he said. Another speaker, Dr. Pe ter H.
