I Grief, anger at King slaying Monday, July 1, 1974 Ukiah Dally Journal, Ukiah Calif.—3 By United Press International The country's political, religious and dvil rights leaders expressed grief and anger Sunday at the killing of the mother of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Mrs. Alberta King, ft), and a bystander were shot to death while she played the organ during services at the church where her husband, the Rev. Martin Luther King Sr., is pastor. Police identified the gunman as Marcus Wayne Chenault, 23, Dayton, Ohio, a graduate student at Ohio State University. -•••-•>. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, head of Chicago's Operation PUSH, whose name appeared on a list of what Columbus, Ohio, police called "possible targets" Chenault had left in his apartment, called for a full-scale investigation of the slaying. "I'm convinced it's not as innocent as a berserk man. It was calculated," he said. President Nixon learned of the shooting on returning to his guest quarters at Yalta, U.S.S.R., after a Black. Sea cruise aboard Soviet Leader Leonid Brezhnev's yacht. "The President was saddened by the tragic and senseless act," deputy White House Press Secretary'.Gerald L. Warren said. Roy Wilkins, executive director of the NAACP, said the incident was a source of sorrow for bim, "but the anger wells up about a family who has given so much to the cause of civil rights arid to God. ...I believe we ought to have vengeance, here '—no lynching —but I mean a trial should be held without dillydallying." , r — < "The reasons behind it (the slayings) are hard to fathom," Sen. Hubert Humphrey, D- Minn., said. "The person who committed the act of violence was obviously disturbed and mentally deranged but that does not ease the pain, suffering and sorrow." The Illinois Senate, meeting three days beyond its scheduled adjournment date, took time out to pass a resolution expressing "profound grief and sorrow at Oregon proving to be irresistible temptation By ROBERT SHEPARD SALEM, Ore: (UPI) — Oregon, like the forbidden apple of the Garden of Eden, is proving to be an irresistible temptation. A few years back, an informal campaign got underway to discourage people from coming to Oregon and overpopulating the presently uncrowded state. That effort does not seem to haye been very successful. The campaign involved Gov. Tom McCall, who,said "come, and visit, but please don't stay," and an organization called the James G. Blaine Society which was dedicated to publicizing Oregon's flaws (up to 130 inches of rain per year in some areas), and "ungreeting cards," which further tout the state's bad points for out-of- state friends or relatives. "But out warnings and pleadings have had no effect," McCall complained in a recent San Francisco speech. "Our population growth is now three times that of Washington and twice, that of California. "We've recently found that. Oregon's monthly net population increase includes 1,800 persons from California alone," he-reported. In terras of absolute growth, Oregon ranks 18th in the nation. The state's population is expected to double in less than 35 years. McCall consoled himself somewhat with the thought that "maybe my rueful admonition helped Oregon to avoid an even, faster growth rate." , McCall concluded that-telling people to stay away is counterproductive. "It serves, apparently, more as temptation than a deterrent —a temptation to taste the forbidden fruit." Stay r away comments by McCall and others, combined with the state's tough pollution control demands, have impressed some people, however. McCall wants to attract "dean" industries to Oregon and he had to fly down to the San Francisco area late last year to assure officials of an electronics firm that they would not' be hissed and booed by Oregonians if the company decided to build a plant in the state. The company decided last month to do just that. While McCall bemoans his state's rapid growth, the founders of the ungreeting card business have discovered a gold mine in the "stay away" pitch. Starting with "$120 and a brainstorm," Frank Beeson and Jim Cloutier, Eugene, Ore.,' turned out an initial line of 18 cards which humorously tell how it is to live in Oregon: "People don't tan in Oregon, they rust." . The cards were an instant success and the company was barely able to keep up with the demand. Then they discovered that people in other states also have a sense of humor and the desire to preserve what is good TO UKIAH SUBSCRIBERS of the UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL PLEASE do not make advance subscription payments to your CARRIERBOY.

Mystery of the 'phantom limb' By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB — Possibly you can help with my problem of "phantom toes." These attacks occur from three weeks to three months apart, and last from 8 to 24 hours. My missing toes feel as though someone°has given them an electric shock. These shocks last from a split second up to a full second or two, and my stump often jerks upward convulsively. This is very distressing, although not really painful. My left leg was amputated in 1924 in the middle of the thigh. I have been most active on an artificial leg. I'm 68, five-feet-ten and have weighed 136 to 139 pounds for many years. In general I'm in excellent health. The various doctors I have consulted suggest aspirin for my phantom toes as an alternative to an operation. They say an operation on the stump is rather uncertain of success. I'm hoping you may have some helpful recommendation for me. DEAR READER - The problem of the "phantom limb" is really a medical mystery. In most cases the amputee has the sensation immediately after surgery, but it can occur years later. He may have the sensation of still having the complete limb that has been cut off. This can lead to difficulties. If he still has the sensation of the original leg and gets out of bed quickly, stepping on the phantom leg, he will fall. If it is the arm that has been amputated he may reach out with the phantom hand and nothing happens. As time goes on the phantom leg may shrink into the stump and disappear. In other in- the passing of two of God's children, Mrs. Alberta King and Mr. Edward Boykin.:." A copy of the resolution was forwarded to the the Ebenezer Baptist Church. Cardinal John Cody, archbishop of Chicago, sent a telegram of sympathy to the' Rev. King, and President" Spencer W. Kimball of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints expressed his sorrow. Two legislators, Rep. Robert Drinan, D-Mass., and an Ohio state lawmaker, Rep. C. J. McLin, said the slaying pointed up the need for gun control legislation. Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho, blamed the "haters and fanatics who fill our society with poison." Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson said "Atlanta is in a time of great sorrow because of the loss of a woman-who truly must be one of the great women of history." Mendocino businesses burglarized Three Mendocino businesses were, broken into and merchandise valued at over $2,300 taken late last week and early this, week. Several cases of vandalism, one involving the Albion library, were also reported. The Mendocino Art Center reported the theft of $1,197 uv jewelry Friday night.

The same thing can happen to the hand in relation to the arm. In your case I take it that you feel the presence of your toes, but not the missing leg. Obviously the sensation is transmitted some way through the neryes. There seem to be sensitive spots (trigger areas) that; when pressed, make the limb or the sensations appear. There are a variety of sensations reported, including tingling (the most cornmon) and sensations of hot and cold. No one has been successful in defining the anatomy of the pain. It is riot from irritated cut nerve ends. Surgery has been tried, even by snipping off the roots of nerves at the spinal cord, without success. Because of the lack of correlation of the pain with, anatomy, some have thought the problem was related to psychological factors. While emotional upsets can trigger an episode, it just isn't that simple. You can inject the nerve areas and provide relief. One proof of the anatomic basis versus just "nerves" is that if you do not inject the right nerve areas or trigger points, there VVill be no rehefrln' general ToT'patients with severe problems, efforts should be made toward treatment with injections of demonstrated trigger areas that set off the reaction of nerves to that area. This sometimes gives relief for many months and occasionally leads to complete remission. "You may'not need the injections since your sensations are usually short-lived and you have long periods of freedom from your phantom toes. Shatterproof Bottle
