Wildcats need atlas for Lions parade Tuesday, July 2, 1974 Ukiah Daily Journal, Ukiah, Calif.—3 How's the weather? BE Get out your geography book. You'll need it tor this article, pointing out that Lions International truly is international and world-wide in its community service activities, and proving that the earth and the creatures on it are subject to change, for better or worse. Wednesday the Ukiahi Wildcats Marching Band will be among 20 or so top high school bands playing in competition while representing various delegations of Lions Club\ members from throughout the United States and the world. The parade begins at about 6 p.m., starting in the heart of the San Francisco financial district and wending its way 1M» miles past the final San Francisco city hall reviewing stand on Polk. More about the parade, «4Jkiah's band and its part in the parade another time. Suffice it to say Ukiah is supposed to lead "300 to 600" plus, Michigan Lions into the parade, and along die entire line'of march. It will be something to see, that Lions international parade in San Francisco, the night before the Fourth of July! There will be more national, state, and international flags than you can shake a stick at, so. to speak. Band members and others will be rubbing shoulders with some 45,000 marchers in all, divided into 150 or more assigned marching units. (Ukiah is 85 and touches off and moves into the parade leading the Michigan delegation at 7:30 p.m. from Montgomery just off . Pine street.) Why the geography brush up before the parade, or while reading this piece? Because we hope geography will make both the parade and this article more interesting, and un. derstandable. Canada, France, Illinois, California-Nevada, Brazil, the other 48 states, Yukon Territory and Northwest Territories; . even Greece, Algeria, Chile and the Republic of China, Jordan, Republic of Korea, Thailand, Republic of Vietnam, as well as assorted Canadian provinces, and' African standbys like Ethiopia, Kenya; are. well torfowft, 1 thanks to wars and * history. But, in addition to seeing San Francisco's emerging skyscrapers, the Ukiahi Wildcats Marching Band will be viewing the flags and many of the peoples and native costumes of scores of emerging nations Wednesday afternoon and evening, when Ukiah joins literally/ and ' actually, thousands of Lions and at least 17 other top high school bands in, the Lions International Parade in San Francisco. * Where is, or are, Afars and < Issas, or what were they when you and I, or our mothers and fathers, grandparents or great- grand parents went to school? And how about Brunei, the Republic of Burundi? Burma is either a country or a shave cream; and the United Republic of Cameroon is, in the line of march, just ahead of the Central African Republic. The familiar Central America — Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama is followed by the Republic of Chad. (Is that where Chad Everett got his name, or is that emerging area named after Everett?) You're familiar with the Dominican Republic, Ecuador and Fiji Islands, but how about the Republic of Gabon? Where is the Republic of Dahomey? Even if you're a welUraveled World War II, or, better yet, a returned Vietnam veteran, you might be hard pressed to quickly recall or pin-point the location of Sri Lanka, Republic of Buanda, Maruitania, Mauritius, Republic of' Malagasy, Tanzania, Tojg£, Republic of Upper Volta, Zaire, Zambia, and Grand Cayman, or Torola, not to mention Botswana, Macau, and others. The Iron Curtain countries, from USSR on down, are not represented. And Lions International must be the occasion for renewed faith and hope for peaceful co-existence —marching together as unit 24 of some 150 units is the British Isles Lions delegation — England, Scotland, Wales, and North Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, "marching along, together..." as the old song says. For Ukiah and Redwood Empire Lions, and for the Ukiahi band membersiit will be an education, an unforgettable experience. It is expected that the number of persons marching in the parade will be about 4Vi> times the population of Ukiah —about 45,000, with most delegations 300 to 750 Lions in size, from all over the world! Six amendments have qualified for ballot "It was a great day for the people of California," said Assemblyman Barry Keene, former staff attorney to the Constitution Revision Commission, when legislative action qualified six commission recommendations for the November ballot. "This November's ballot is a people's ballot. It contains constitutional reforms in the areas of housing, voting rights, recall of elected officials, taxes, utility regulation, and strengthening the fundamental rights of citizens. I am pleased that the Legislature is giving the voters a chance to approve these exciting reforms." Sixteen Constitutional amendments have been submitted to the secretary of state for placement on the November ballot. According to Keene, this will not make an unusually long ballot. He noted that in 1914 there were, 48 ballot propositions and that 26 of the last 50 statewide elections have had 17 or more propositions. "Although the ballot will be long, these are largely good measures that benefit everyone. Not one of the 15 measures is sponsored by a lobbying organization and it is the first time that homeowners and renters, low and moderate income people, utility users, women and children, students and university officials, and voters wishing to recall unresponsive elected state, officials, all benefit from ballot measures. I look forward to voter approval of each of them," the Eureka Democrat said. THANKS EXPRESSED — Band Director Rowland Nielson, right, shakes hands and • says a Ukiahi band thank you to Don Starks before Starks, with his wife, Dorothy, "heads out" with a van and donated trailer loaded with band paraphernalia enroute home to Ukiah after,Portland Rose Festival' parade. Starks will haul another load of band in struments to San Francisco for Wednesday appearance of Ukiahi Wildcats Marching Band in Lions International parade at 7 that night. Ukiah Wild-Katz Band Parents Club and community backs band appearances tremendously with donated funds, materials, services. —Journal photo by Erickson.

Erma Knighien Co. cattlemen attend anti-rustling program If a raiser of livestock suspects theft, he should stay away from the area until the sheriff's office and investigators from the Bureau of Livestock Identification can get On the scene to gather evidence and establish the method of operation, according to Bill Hooten from .the California Bureau of Livestock Identification. Hooten spoke Friday to 45 cattlemen and law enforcement officials at the 12th District Fairgrounds. He told livestock raisers they should record license numbers, make of vehicles and color of any suspicious vehicles in the area. Films made with the aid of a cooperative rustler, who had f been captured by authorities were shown by Hooten. He stated that the gooseneck trailer was one of the most largely used single tools of the rustlers. The captured rustler demonstrated at a feed lot, not expecting to be "ripped off," how he could back his trailer up to the gate, open it, drive in cattle, close the gate, and be off in five minutes. Hooten told how the rustler had returned three times to the same feed lot to take cattle before the stock yard owner locked the gates. Another rustler, with the aid of his wife, pulled up to a field of calves and caught a three- month old calf and loaded it into the trunk of his car in three minutes. In addition to the cattlemen attending the meeting Friday were representatives of the California Highway Patrol, Mendocino County sheriff's office, Fish and Game Department, Bureau of Land Management and National Forest Service. ' The meeting was especially planned by the Mendocino County Cattlemen's Association because of the large number of incidents of rustling in this area, according to Jack Mitchell, association president, who acted as, master of ceremonies, IRS out of energy program SAN FRANCISCO — The Federal Energy Administration today assumed full responsibility for enforcing compliance with federal energy regulations. The change-over marks the end of the Internal Revalue/ Service's participation in^he energy program, As the petroleum industry's price- watcher, the IRS has ordered close to $800,000 in gasoline rollbacks during the first six months Of 1974 in northern California. , FEA compliance groups of IRS-trained investigators have been established in San Francisco and Sacramento with investigations continuing throughout northern California. The San Francisco FEA office is located at 111 Pine Street, telephone 556-7300. The Sacramento office is at 650 Capitol Mall, telephone 449-2343. The transfer of duties merely means that IRS will no longer participate in the energy' program. Petroleum price controls imposed under the Emergency Petroleum Allocation Act remain in effect and price-checking duties formerly performed by IRS will be carried on completely by the FEA. Since its involvement with the stabilization program began in August 1971, the IRS has ordered rollbacks totaling $4.1 million in northern California.
