7A -July 18, 1976 Sunday Gasette-Mail Chwliifon. Witt Virjlnii · -Otherwise Brains Are Stretched Thinking of Future By Tom Fesperman Annie Holmes stood in the Majave Desert. At Saddleback Butte in Antelope Valley. Looking east toward the unseen dry lake of El Mirage. Far out in California, among Joshua trees. Mikes out there was only more grit, rocks, gopher holes, cacti and unclim- able bald hills. Silence moved slowly around her. This was as far as you could get from home on The Plaza in crowded growing, high-rise Charlotte, N.C. Annie Lane is a great-grandmother. She sees the past without regret and faces the future with the happy anticipation of a child in mid-December. * * * SHE HAD ALWAYS been at home in the South. Close home. Few trips. But her mind is broad, conscious of sights unseen, snow-topped mountains, incessant waterfalls, salt-filled lakes. Yet, unexpectedly, she had got a trip to the West with sister Mary, and she stood in the Mojave, her senes soaking it in like a sponge. We had introduced her to Malibu, Beverly Hills, Bel-Air, Hollywood. The spider web of Los Angeles freeways. And she appreciated it. But nothing matched the desert. It caused Annie Lane to get meditative, to say things to herself behind closed dry lips. She had never fully seen space before. * * * I HAVE LIVED in the desert, become sort of adjusted to it. I had almost forgotten the first impression, but Annie Lane brought it back. We talked about it later, in a quiet way. It invokes spiritual thoughts. It makes us wonder how the first explorers ever.made it across. It makes us wonder why, with all this unused space, we cluster togetherand bump into each other. We recall dinosaurs, yet wonder what our descendants will do with this space in the 23rd century. Unlike anything else, it stretches our brains. Annie Lane bent over and picked up some tiny rocks, knowing no one would miss them. She would take them home to her commercial city, proof to the kids that she'd been out there. And proof, too, how wrong I can be. 1 don't know why I had ever thought she'd be most bowled over by the spider web of freeways in Los Angeles. OPEN DAILY 10tol( SUNDAY 1T07 PRICES IN EFFECT SUN. MON, JULY 18 19, WHILE QUANTITIES LAST 50 Arrested in Ohio In Union Picket Protest SIDNEY, Ohio, (AP) - Shelby County sheriff's deputies arrested 50 persons Friday night after using tear gas to disperse a mob of some 600 persons that had stormed the county jail to protest the arrest of 25 union pickets. The 50 were arrested on charges ranging from resisting arrest to rioting and disturbing the peace. Most were released on $100 bail and are scheduled to appear in Shelby County Common Pleas Court Monday. Some 300 police officers from adjacent counties were summoned to help Shelby County deputies and tear gas was used to break up the crowd. Deputies said the mob threw rocks and bottles at the jail, shattering every window in the building. Four officers inside the jail received minor injuries from flying glass. "It was like a little.Vietnam inside there," said a union official who was inside the jail posting bail for some of the pickets when the rioting started. . The trouble started when sheriff's deputies were dispatched to enforce a court order limiting picketing at the strikebound Copeland Corp. plant here to two pickets per gate. The order also limited picketing at places that move the refrigeration products produced at the plant. The officers ar- rested 25 pickets, members of Local 725 of the'International Union of Electrical Workers, when they allegedly refused to move. A member of the local, Patricia Sale, in describing the arr«ts, said,"They told us to wive the pickets and when we didn't they turned fire hoses on them and herded them into horse vans." Sheriff John Lenhart said the majority of the people who were arrested were not affiliated with Copeland's in any way. "A lot of them are just local troublemakers and our feeling is they took the opportunity to retaliate against some law enforcement officials," Lenhart said. "I don't feel that the law enforcement officials treated my people fairly," said Eugene Amburgey, president of Local 725. "I'm sorry that people got hurt during this, but I don't feel it was my people's fault. This union does not condone violence." The strike, involving about 2,600 workers, began six weeks ago when the union's contract expired. Negotiators returned to the bargaining table this week, but the talks were stalled after one day. Pickets at the plant Saturday morning observed the court's two-per-gate limit. n L.M. A LATIMER'S MAN GOES TO COLLEGE!! .. .and what a way to go!
