Friday, January 6, 1978 Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Calif,—7 Cathy Velardi Suggested resolution for '78: to let the holiday spirit continue throughbut the year, and be Ss nicie and cheerful to others as they Were — aln^ost unfailingly — to you during the Christmas season ... Unfortunately, some Ukiah young people did not get-the Christmas message, atjd spent the holiday weekend defacing local stores and sigiis. K mari was the victim of the most vandalism, with the entire Auto Service Center sign smashed, and y^uxiliary' floodlights destroyed and twisted from their moorings. Damage at K mart is estimated at $2,000. — an expensive prank! Another victim of the holiday destruction was A-1 Travel Planners, whose sign was holed several times. In keeping with the "Do unto others ..." theme, perhaps we could give the merchants involved a pile of stones and equal time. Contrary to local wags' speculation, K-LIL neither had its license yanked nor was it bested in a speak-off with 200 local CB'ers. Our recent high winds deroofed an antenna station, and subsequent rains soaked equipment and damaged a transformer. Repairs are underway and the voice of K-LIL will soon again be filling the airwaves as of old. Ukiah is expanding, expanding, expanding...nearing completion is a brand new Mr. Steak restaurant in the Orchard Plaza shopping Center...And scheduled to grovv is Zack's popular north^iderestaurant; an enlarged parking lot: will come first, to be followed by bigger and better cooking and eating facilities, now on the drawing ' board.,..My Christmas poem received such comment that I will probably print, someday, one of the seven sonnets of four Haiku (which, lest we forget, is Ukiah spelled backwards) I composed one day last week while waiting for the green light at State and Perkins Streets. Really, Somebody Up There,' SOMETHING must be done about an alternate route through town! Col lege has va riety of classes outside Ukiah And on the same expansive note: .Dave Spencer, celebrating the New Year with a year end sale, reports that Dec. 27 was his best day since he opened his store — 28 years ago! ' Just missing our First Baby of 1978 contest was Lillian Kipnmel of Wells Fargo Bank whose first venture into Grandmotherhood was more than she bargained ^or — twin girls! Gunnie's fifth annual Winter Wipe-Out Sale (with savings on merchandise of up to 50 percent) has proven such a great success that it will be continued for another week Will we soon haye an Important Notice issuing from the southwest corner of School and Perkins Sts. Stay tuned: same time, same place...and until then, Qao! ' FROM OUR REAPERS) Sonoma, CA Editor, Ukiah Daily Journal: In your Dec. 28 issue you reported that Assemblyman Barry Keene and Supervisor Ernie Banker had jointly informed Office of Management and Budget Director John Melntyre that he should ignore efforts by officials of California to determine the safety of the Warm Springs Dam. Their telegram to Melntyre said that a board of independent experts had evaluated the questions. The experts referred to are Dr. Arthur Casagrande, Harvard professor emeritus and a recognized soils "mechanic; Francis Schlicter, retired " Corps of Engineers dam designer and engineer; and Lawrence B. James, retired Califorflia Department of Water Resources geologist. All of these men were eminent in their fields during their active lives but not one of them is a seismologist. The -^full development of the plate tectonic theory that is now accepted as the moving force for earthquakes along the San Andreas Fault is less than 15 years old. The instruments to record such movements have only been available to this part'.of California for the last four or five years. The geologists and seismologists of the State Division of Mines and Geology have reason to believe that the seismicity of the dam site is not fully understood. They are led to this conclusion by several recent events (which occurred after the review of the dam design by the experts) including the Willits earthquakes of Nov, 22 and Nov. 23v The State of California is responsible under law for public safety. The state ,officials are not undermining the Corps but are asking that seismologists and geologists be allowed to determine that the proper data base was used in the design. Everyone is confident that, given the proper data, the Corps can design 3 dam to safely sit atop the Dry Creek FAult. Would the people of Dry Creek a'nd Healdsburg want it any other way? The memory of newspaper {leadlines and TV coverage of the Teton and Toccoa dam failures is too fresh. Perhaps a review of the facts concerning those tragedies should be made by Assemblyman Keene and Supervisor'Banker before they are so quick to find fault with state officials.

The well-publicized antics of the President's colorful younger brother are producing more embarrassment than smiles these days among administration insiders, according - to Washington observers. In a recent television appearance, Carter modeled a "suit of armor" constructed from beer can pop tops. Israel support most significant WASHINGTON (UPI) The most significant religious development in 1977 was the groining support for Israel by evangelical Christians, a widely respected com- hientator on religious affairs says. "This sign of friendship is cheering and should help dispel lingering Jewish fears that the soil from which mittee's honoring evangelist Billy Graham and recent newspaper ads t&ken out by conservative Protestants condemning President Garter's "flexible" Mideast starice.

Dr. Madsen's topic.will be "We Thank Thee, Oh God', For a Prophet," and will center around the influence of the living prophets with personal insights. Madsen is presently serving as the Executive Assistant to the Managing Director, Youth Section, of the Church's Priesthood Department. He has been af^JUated with the Church Educational System for many years, having served as a teacher or director of seminaries and institutes of religion in Utah, Idaho, Washington, and Great Britain. He was born in Washington D.C., received his B.S. degree at Washington State University and his masters and doctorate in psychology from. Brigham , Young University. He has served in many responsible church positions including a mission president, missionary, high counselor in three stakes, and MPMIA General Board member, m^nd his wife are the parents • of %our daughters. Dr. Madsen suggests everyone bririg their scriptures to this lecture. The "Know Your Religion" lectures are a seminary-type cldss for adults provided to supplement and strengthen the regular programs of the church. However, tensions still exist between conservative Protestants and Jews over the issue of evangelical proselytiang. A recent survey of religious thought undertaken by the Anti-Defamation Leagiie of the B'nai B'rith suggests Christian proselytizing appears to be "increasingly out of step with mainstream Christianity, which now more than ever recognizes a coexistence with Judaism." Marty said it was unlikely conservative Christians have "deserted llrieir messianic claims for Jesus" or given up "their interest in carrying on a mission to the Jews ..." c IN UNIFORM JAMES POMPLIN Coast Guai-d Radarman Second Class James L.
