Nov. 28, 1970 egal Citizen Band use angers serious operators AP Wirephoto 'Now, play the black 10 on the red jack' . . , Delbert tlx steer roaches Nora Martin, 17, at livestock show Long-haired stockmen keep animals straight Chicago Daily News Servlc. CHICAGO Changing limes marked by longer hair styles have reached the International Livestock Exposition, long a hallmark of straightness and stock showmen in increasing numbers have been in evidence at the exposition in the International Amphitheater in recent years, show officials admit. But they a're quick to emphasize that: Longhairs still are a minority among exhibitors. Longhairs at the e x h i b i t Dotto refused financial aid Kettering inventor Gianni A. j Dotto has run into another ob- j stacle in the development of an electronic device he says is for j treating and detecting cell disor-; ders, including cancer. The local unit of the American I Cancer Society says any finan-: cial support for such a research project could not be made to Dotto, but only to an institution i that would conduct the research. K1CHARD Hohler, executive! director, said the "no grants to! individuals" stand is "defi-i nitely" a policy of the national organization. "If he gets any aid from us, he must go through an institution," : Hohler said. Furthermore, he said, any such research applications would have to be made to the national organization and could not be handled by the local unit since it does not have the background or qualifications to act on such matters. DOTTO, a former automotive engineer, was not available for comment. Earlier, t h e Montgomery County Medical Society Executive Council also turned its back on the inventor, saying it "cannot and will not recommend treatment for cancer" by the electrical device. The statement, published in a paid advertisement in The Journal Herald, said qualified scientific evaluaion of the treatment had been sought by a number of institutions and agencies but "no information of probative value has been received from any of those sources." $7,700 bond set on CSU student XENIA - A Central State University student who tried to hang himself in Xenia jail had bond set at $1,100 on charges of fraud and auto theft yesterday. Gerald Pace, 18, of Cleveland, had been indicted by the Greene County grand jury for the Oct. 2 theft of an auto but was released on his own recognizance to the university. Following his arrest last weekend for using a stolen credit card, he tried to hang himself with his own pair of socks in his jail cell Wednesday. He was taken to Greene Memorial Hospital, then to Miami Valley Hospital, where he was treated and released. Municipal Court Judge Joe L. Hagler set Pace's preliminary hearing on the fraud charge and his trial for the auto theft count for Dec. 16. He imposed bond, telling Pace he "didn't understand" the provisions of his release on recognizance. The fraud charge was brought on the complaint of Wade Parker, an attendant at Reeves Service Station, North Detroit Street and Ankeny Mill Road, alleging that Pace bought S6.40 worth of gas with a stolen credit card. The missing auto later was recovered in Jamestown. may forget to get haircuts, but they do not forget to wash. BOTH POINTS were verified by a spot check of the nearly 5,000 exhibitors at the 71st annual exposition, which is in the third day of a seven-day run. No longhairs were observed in the act of washing themselves. But plenty were seen washing or even scrubbing their animals. "We put some kind of detergent-lined soap on them," explained Terry Rule, 22, of Mineral Point, Wis. "Then we work over their bodies with little rubber hand-scrubbers for about half an , hour! "IT'S HARD on the arm if you haven't done it for a j whilue, but we try to do it once a week." Rule gave this kind of treat- ment to his two hereford show steers twice in the week that I immediately preceded the exposition's opening. ; And the day before the show ! opened, Rule, whose own hair is long enough to sway in the wind, : cut the hair of both Speedy, a I 930-pound steers and Stallion- S (aire, which weighted in at 1,135! pounds. "We go over them with regu-j lar barber's hair clippers and ! sheep shears, which are a hand-scissors affair a little over a foot j I long," he explained. "THEN WE use the blower on them to blow the hair away, ' : down into the straw " A steer gets his haircut, which takes between an hour and an hour and a half, the day before a show. But for his own hair, which is cut by his wife, Nancy, on the j Rules' 400-acre farm, Rule can afford to wait until "it needs it," which, in his opinion, is not! "that often." IMMEDIATELY before taking a steer into the show ring, however, Rule dons a wig a short wig. "1 guess if they're going for I short-haired looks, you may as well give 'em that look," he I explained. And from Rule there was an added note of concession: "I had a mustache before 1 came down here, but 1 shaved : that off. "I knew that wouldn't 'get it," either." By Michael Seiler Journal Herald Staff Writer The Shadow, Night Owl and Moonlight ride the late night radio waves, spreading their illegal and sometimes off-color chatter from their Dayton bases across the continent to anyone who cares to listen. And to some people who would rather not. One man who could live without Moonlight and his ilk is Cecil M. "Bud" Morrett, president of the Dayton-Montgomery chapter of REACT. REACT is a national group of Citizen's Band radio operators who monitor emergency channel 9 and lend assistance to other CB owners in distress. THE SHADOW, Night Owl and Moonlight are the "h a n d 1 e s" used illegally by some operators in place of call signals. Morrett said there are about 2,500 legal users of CB radio in the area and 500 illegal ones. And of the 500 illegal users, maybe 75 or 100 "mess things up for the rest," Morrett said. CB radios are the low man on the Federal Communications Commission totem pole. The FCC is busy enough with micro-w a v e transmitters, television, commercial radio and ham radio, Morrett said, so busy that CB often falls beyond the pale of law enforcement. "A CITIZENS Band radio was meant to be used for business and emergencies," Morrett said, but it frequently doesn't work out that way. Channels set aside specifically for emergencies often are overwhelmed by carefree talkers, interested only in seeing how far their "rig" will transmit. For instance, during last month's widespread and devastating forest fires in Southern California CB operators from Tennessee, Indiana, Michigan and Oklahoma, using illegally high-powered equipment, "skipped" hundreds of miles into California. MEANINGLESS chatter, much of it unintelligible, clogged the channel CBers were using for emergencies. At one point an angry man broke in and said, "Keep this channel clear. Please, if you are skipping to the California area, j please turn to another channel." "There are people's lives endangered on the West Coast,"! the man said. "We do need this channel very urgently." After more undecipherable chatter, the man broke in again: "Now get the hell off it, and I mean it buddy." He might as well have been talking into unoccupied air. IF THE problem exists every where, it is more acute in the Dayton area, than most other places, Morrett said. "The overcrowdedness of alii 33 channels including emer-j gency channel 9 seems to be I particularly bad in Dayton," he said. "There are places in the U.S. where you don't hear any of this (non-essential chatter.) "The epidemic seemed to begin three years ago and I said then that in five years the Citizens Band radio would be completely useless. It seems to have gotten to that stage now." THE PROBLEM, Morrett said, is one of power. The FCC limits CB sets to an input of 5 watts and an output of 3.5 watts. With that sort of power, he said, an operator usually has a range of about 30 miles. But operators can easily purchase linear power units which increase the total power capacity of their sets. 500 watts is the rule, not the exception for CBers who avoid the FCC rules and "I know of one and two kilowatt stations in Dayton that jam three channels at once when they broadcast." MORRET SUMS up CB prob lems this way: Too many people using the channels for chit-chat and nonessential calls when CB was intended for emergencies and business matters. Operators talk far more than the 5 minute limit, sometimes obscenely, and without the use of call letters as laid down in FCC regulations. Illegally high antennas and overpowered transmitters. The answer, Morrett said is two-fold. First, anyone purchasing CB equipment should be required to show the dealer a license; currently anyone can purchase the relatively inexpen sive equipment. SECONDLY the FCC should have "more money to hire more engineers and do a better job of policing," he said. Edward Adams, an engineer with the FCC's regional office in Detroit, said, "We're operating as well as we can with what we've got." In the case of the Detroit office, that means only five engineers to monitor and inspect the whole range of FCC responsibilitiesfrom microwave systems on down to CB in Ohio, the southern peninsula of Michigan and Western Kentucky. "We're just not staffed so that we can go into each city in the region," Adams said. "We have a lot of responsibilities much more important than Citizens Band radio," he said. SINCE illegal CB hobbyists strike most frequently at night, "many of our engineers have to go out on their own spare time," Adams said, to track them down with directional signal detection equipment. Adams said he and the other Detroit-based engineers got into Dayton "more than half-a-dozen times a year," and hand out many $100 fines. Operating CB radios without a license is punishable by a fine as high as $10,000 and from one to two years in prison, Adams said. The use of obscenity is a special case. "Any person who uses obscenity is subject to criminal prosecution by the Department of Justice," Adams said. "We don't handle the thing, we turn it over to the FBI." Despite the threat of investiga-t ion by the FCC and the FBI, violations continue over the night air waves. Why? Only the Shadow knows.
