16-Mar. 13,1959 Redlands Daily Facts <Da% ifacts At Long Last, Hawaii Admitted To The Union At last, the Territory of Hawaii has gained admission to the United States. Congress has approved the bill, and the President will sign it Nothing but formalities remain to complete the action. Statehood will mean many things to many people. To plain John Doe, citizen and mainlander, the first thing it means is: "There goes the 40-star flag. I'm not going to buy one. I'm going to wait for the 50-star flag." To the people of the islands it first means the fulfillment of a deep yearning, the removal of an "injustice." the attainment of a long sought goal. It is the occasion for an emotional outburst—the tooting of steam whistles, the shooting of skyrockets, a celebration to make memorable in island history. To the State of California it means almost the admission of a brother state to the Union. The relationship between California and Hawaii is extraordinary in that virtually all travel to the islands starts from our harbors and airports, and the in-bound landings are at the same places. There is no such exclusive linking between any other states in the union, although the Washington-Alaska link is somewhat similar. To our national government it means a new era. The territory is dominated by people of Polynesian and Asiatic ancestry- Already the majority in the island legislature, they will climb the political ladder to the Congress in Washington. For the first time we will see them in the House and in the Senate. Incidentally, this will bring the wearing of leis into the Senate for the first time, adding a new note of color on opening day to this sedate body. Into the family of states it will bring another with color to match the Texans, with their telling of tall tales, the Alaskans with vast lands and rugged spirit, and the Californians with their extravagant pride. Hawaii will add the color of its flowers, the charm of its Hula, and the poetry of its poignant "Aloha." But there will be troubles, too. Hawaii is in the grip of ruthless Harry Bridges, head of the Loneshoremen's union. No state is so vulnerable to the whims of a single man as a cluster of islands, dependent upon transportation by sea for shipping its major products—sugar and pineapples—and for receiving the necessities of daily living. There are other lurking shadows, foo, which have caused the U. S. Senate to withhold statehood for so long. But this is not the day for further looking back. Hawaii has been voted into the Union. Now we must solve whatever problems that may bring, as we have done before—sometimes with tremendous agony, and sometimes with only a whoop and a holler. "In Line of Duty' (Flying Safety magazine) Sometimes you may feel that we in the Directorate of Flight Safety Research are far removed from the real-life problems of military flying. Here in a building crowded with computers and IBM cards, accident statistic charts and Forms 14, the procedures may seem very cold and impersonal. We are not so far removed from it all as you may think. Among the accident reports, so systematically numbered and methodically analyzed here, there are now two new ones bearing the names of some of our own associates: Colonel Harry G. Moseley. Major Thomas W. Greenwood. Jr., and Major Vernon R. Stutts. Colonel Moseley, Chief of the Aero Medical Safety Division of this Directorate, and Major Greenwood, Investigation and Field Operations • Division, were returning on 10 February from the School of Aviation Medicine, Randolph AFB, where they had attended a symposium on space medicine. The T-33 they were traveling in was reported missing and, as this goes to press, no further word has been received. Major Ray Stutts, Editor joi Flying Safety since 1956, was fatally injured in a T-33 accident at Wright- Patterson AFB on the 14th of February. He had been on a trip to the East Coast gathering material for this magazine. Each of these officers was "in line of duty" at the time, studying, working, gathering information to pass on to you in the interest of your safety. Here — surrounded in this building by the finest collection of accident-prevention material in the world—what can we do? Just one thing. Whether the accident involves our friends and associates or yours, we can only strive to learn what went wrong and why, then do everything humanly possible to see that it never happens again. The Newsreel The University of Pennsylvania dental school announces development of an electric toothbrush, the most massive breakthrough in oral hygiene since the plastic toothpick. Descriptions of the moon are chilling. It's just about impossible for most of us to imagine a landscape so desolate that there aren't even any beer cans. Pioneer IV, it appears, will circle the sun for all ternity, and Democrats in the Senate are expected to demand if the administration is taking steps to see that the next one stays in orbit longer. It is suggested that science instruction begin in the first grade. Bjut where would you get enough Nobel prize-winners as teachers to answer the science questions that only first-graders can ask? With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore This ought to be a flourishing spring in the clothes business. Easter, which makes a lady's fancy turn to drosses and hats, comes on March 29. the earliest date for it since 1951. The Facts Spring Fashion edition, of course, helped to stimulate interest. And then there is the Spring weather which brought March in like a lamb, and has been bringing us clear, warm days ever since. Actually, the Spring weather is an extension of the unusually mild, and climatically short, winter — the second mild winter in a row. Why this weather, which can only be criticised for lack of rain, has come to us is hard to say. But at least we can all look for explanations. One of them may be the temperature of the ocean, that great air conditioner. For nearly two years the Pacific Ocean off Southern California has been abnormally warm. This we have on the word of the ' Scripps Institution of Oceanography at La Jolla. The tepid masses of water moved in two years ago this month and have remained. Over large areas the temperature is four to six degrees above normal. "The changes in climate that have affected Southern California have been felt in the whole Pacific Basin." says Prof. John Isaacs of Scripps. So you might just as wejl buy your Spring — and maybe your summer — outfit soon. - In supervising the operation of the big Mangold farm, just west of Redlands and adjoining th e Calectric steam plant. Foreman B. F. Goodwin likes to ride .a horse. The steed that he favored called Ontario home, as does M r. Goodwin. That's why he didn't stick around these parts when some children tried to catch and ride, him. He broke out of his pasture and headed for home. Being a smart horse he knew that the most direct route to On. lario was along Highway 99. But he didn't take the heavy automobile traffic into account. It was difficult enough, trotting through Loma Linda, and figuring out that three-way light at Waterman avenue. The traffic interchange at the San Bernardino freeway junction, proved puzzling but he did manage to get through. In Colton he found the steep freeway embankments a bit difficult and on west, those crossings were just too much. Excited, fenced and confused he blundered into the oncoming traffic at Bloomington and was critically wounded. There his journey ended, forever. Firecrackers are forbidden now aday to celebrate the glorious independence of our republic on Fourth of July. But there are limits to these "verbotens" and Assemblyman Phillip Burton has introduced a bill that would make a certain exception. Firecrackers, says AB 1833, could be legally exploded in a religious ceremony. What religious ceremony? You'll have to ask Assemblyman Burton to ask his constituents — the ones who live in the part of his bailiwick that is called San Francisco's Chinatown.

Flemming says job discrimination against older workers is "absolutely indefensible" and a "disservice to the country." SUSPEND NEWSPAPER ANKARA, Turkey <UPI) — The Turkish newspaper Ulu has been suspended for one month and its editor, Ulku Arman, has been sentenced to 16 months imprisonment for publishing a story critical of the government. A court handed down the sentences Wednesday as punishment for printing a translation of a dispatch allegedly written by Eugene Pulliam and first published in the Indianapolis (Ind.) Star. WASHINGTON CPU — Commemorating the Civil War is one thing. Refighting it is something else again. The Civil War Centennial Commission set up to plan a four-year observance starting in 1961, wishes we all would go to the movies instead. Plans to re-enact big Civil War battles are taking shape on a scale that has commission officials beginning to worry. Lee and Grant weren't able to mobilize much faster, and Ihey were out to make history, not recollect it. A dozen or more engagements already are contemplated by state and local interests, and the commission gets rumors of more in the works. Grant On Hand From what commission members hear, some of these re-runs may cost almost as much as the originals. The battle strategists are hoping, however, to draw tourists enough to refill local tills. It is hopefully assumed also that all the shots thss time will be blanks. But Maj. Gen. I'lysses S. Grant III, grandson of the Union war leader and" chairman of the centennial commission, would rest easier if there were more ceremony planned and less shooting. "I am much disturbed by the knowledge that people think of the centennial as only a giant re- fighting of the war." Grant said the other day in a statement. "This isn't the case at all." Grant insisted today it wasn't the prospect of reopening old wounds that prompted his statement. He said all he meant was that the job of restaging the battles is too big and too costly. For whatever reason, the general is trying hard to discourage any wholesale mock letting of blood. As part of the campaign he took time this week to decorate two Hollywood figures for their part in a Civil War movie. Afraid of Horses! The movie is known as "The Horse Soldiers" and is based on a famous Union cavalry caid. Naturally, since horses are involved, Ihey got John Wayne for the main role. William Holden was the other actor cited. Wayne has ridden the range in so many horse operas he can't recall the number. But he's been classed as a star now for 30 years, and he said he had passed the 100-movie mark before anybody even heard of him. Some observers thought Wayne bridled a little in accepting the decoration. If so it's no wonder. They hadn't told him until then that Col. Benjamin Henry Grierson, whose role he plays, was deathly afraid of horse?. To get back to the battles, as everybody seems anxious to do. it is considered inevitable that the festivities will get under way April 12. 1'JSl, with a retake of Beauregard's attack on Ft. Sumter. Between that event and a new surrender at Appomatox. on April 9. 1965, engagements are understood to be contemplated at Manassas, Antietam, Chattanooga, Vicksburg. Atlanta, Pea Ridge, Ark.. Philippi. W. Va.. and Carthage, and Lexington, Mo. Commission officials e x p t c t also that the Monitor and the Mcrrimac will do battle again in Hampton Roads. Maybe this time we will find out for sura which vessel won. IN HOLLYWOOD Vic Mature And The Lion Give Androcles Bum Title By Erskine Johnson HOLLYWOOD - "Androcles and the Lion" were bums.- it seems to me. and I hope the trustees of George Bernard Shaw's estate don't mind my saying so today. A one-day stand — a matinee at that — in a Roman arena hardly puts them in the same blue-ribbon, box-office champion class of "Vic Mature and the Lion." Even. I say, if Vic's lion prefers his meat broiled, sleeps under a monogrammed coverlet, has his teeth filed flat and has a complex, I understand, that he's a duck. Vic Mature and his movie- trained lion, you see, have been a top-billed act ever since 1949 and they have played just about every theater in the world. They now are "together again" as the movie ads like to say about Bergman and Grant — in "The Big Circus." ' This is a movie about murder intrigue under canvas which Producer Irwin Allen is bringing to the screen with Kathy Grant 'Mrs. Bing>, Rhonda Fleming, Red Buttons, Peter Lorre, Gilbert Roland, Adele Mara. David Nelson, -a human cannonball, wire walkers, etc. Vic is the new owner of a circus and. naturally, a lion breaks loose during an elaborate under- the-big-top party he is giving for his friends to celebrate the occasion. "A lion is loosf." Rrd Buttons screams as he comes running up to big Vic. almost knocking him down. That's how much little Red puts into a scene since he's been on that "natural" good diet. Well, everyone screams and there is panic but Vic, braver than Errol Flynn. yells for quiet. "Don 't anyone move," he shouts. That's when Vic, with a chair in his hand, and his lion show Androcles and his lion a thing or two about bringing down the house. Yes. it's the same gentle- as-Ed-Wynn lion Vic "subdued" in two previous films. "Samson and Delilah" and "Demetrius and the Gladiators." Facing Vic, the lion knows he doesn't have a chance. But-he knows about the script and puts on his usual polished performance. With "method" overtones, of course. Vic pokes him with the chair and the lion roars and feints with his paws and makes it look real good. After one angry roar, the lion. I'll swear, gave Vic a quick "don't-worry-pal" wink which I hope the camera didn't catch. Vic's the winner, as usual, and his lion trots off, finally, into a temporary cage. The bars slam shut and Vic takes his usual bow. It was a good thing Director Joe Newman cut quickly to Vic's bow, because once in the cage the lion immediately curled up and went to sleep. Probably had an early call after a big night. But compared to Vic and the linn, I still say Androcles and the lion were bums. Why. Andy didn 't even get paid, and an agent with Roman ancestry I know at MCA still gets nasty memos about it. THE FAMILY DOCTOR Body Odor A Troublesome And Common Complaint By Edwin P. Jordan, M.D. SELL IT .TOMORROW With an inexpensive Classified Ad What is both a common and troublesome complaint is the subject of today's first inquiry. Q—What in the world can be done for an unpleasant bodv odor? - W.A. A—The first step is to . make certain that the unpleasant odor is real and not in the imagination sf the person involved. Once this has been done the problem is to try to determine the cause of the offensive odor and correct it. It can be associated with certain general diseases and with certain skin disorders. I tmay also result from secretion in the perspiration of odors taken into the body through foods, particularly onion, garlic and other seasonings. Certain drugs will also give an offensive body odor, and sometimes more commonly used foods, such as fish. It appears also that th* action of germs on the sweat can produce a bad odor. This can sometimes be handled by using safe sweat reducing preparations locally. Occasionally, an unusual cause Is discovered. There is one famous case in which a patient with an offensive body odor was found to be weiring a ring. When it was removed, e permanent cure resulted. —What are the chances of becoming pregnant when a woman has only one ovary? — J - M. A—Ordinarily, of course, there are two ovaries. Each ovary manufactures eggs which are capable of fertilization. A woman with one ovary will in all probability manufacture half as many eggs as one with two. But there are many instances en record of pregnancy in women with only one ovary. Q—Not long ago I heard of a vitamin which was supposed to he splendid for dissolving fat in the arteries. Can you give me the same name of this vitamin? — Mrs. B. A—I do not believe that any vitamin has been scientifically proven to dissolve fat in the arteries. Indeed, this whole question of deposits of fat and cholesterol in the arteries is the subject of considerable research today and some controversy. Q—Can you tell me any reason, or possible remedy, for small hanging bits of skin or flesh which began sprouting from a half dozen areas of my body? — F.J. A—This sounds rather unusual. I can thnk of two or three possibilities, but it would be safest to consult promptly a skin specialist or diagnostician. It could be serious, or again could be something which you can safely ignore. Q—Please say something about the disease called cellulitis.—F.S. A—This is an infection of the tissues lying in and under the skin. In some respects it resembles a very large and extensive boil. It is usually acute and requires concentrated and expert care and possibly surgery, since it is both a serious and potentially dangerous condition.
