12-Mar.23,1959 Redlands Daily facts With O Grain Spark Is Lacking In Pitch For Foreign Aid No sign exists that Congress in 1959 will be any friendlier to foreign aid than it has been for the last several years. So we can expect the lawmakers to bite fairly hard into President Eisenhower's S3.9 billion request. Conservatives in both parties have a cumulative feeling that the aid program inescapably Involves waste. They hope to minimize it by reducing the available total. Others see cuts in foreign assistance as an easy way to win the "economy" tag without hurting themselves in the eyes of their constituents. Some congressional liberals this time are said to feel that if foreign aid is slashed there will be more "budget room" for new programs they believe the voters want. And there are those who have taken to objecting not because they dislike foreign aid or see it as any easy mark but because they feel the recent emphasis on military rather than economic help is a mistake. The truth, of course, is that Congress as a whole grew so hostile to economic aid that it was slashed sbarpry, and the administration tries to work some of it back in each year by liberal . intororetations of the phrase "defense support." With assaults coming from so many quarters for such divergent reasons, only a miracle or an Imminent threat of disaster somewhere among our foreign friends would be likely to salvage the President's program whole. Of Salt By Frank and' Bill Moore "Can I help you, perhaps?" a polite stranger volunteered Saturday afternoon in the science section of the stacks at the A. K. Smiley Public Library. "I know these book shelves pretty well." As the boy had observed, we needed a little help. The chart of planetary motions which we sought didn't appear in any of a number of astronomy books which we inspected. "Here." he said, "this book might help. If it doesn't you might find what you are looking for in Van Nostrands Encylopaedia o f Science, on the reference shelves." Was he a student at the University of Redlands. we inquired. No, he replied, he is a senior at Redlands High School. Kenneth Aring by name. He likes math, he said, and is inclined to spend more time than he should, avidly reading physics books borrowed from the Smiley Library. We hope that there are many Kenneth Arings — and we suspect that there really are. They are the boys who have discovered the Wonderful world of books and are continuously excited by it. They approach mathematics, not as a chore, but as something interesting to reason out. They take to science as a duck to water. They are ready to share their interest and enthusiasm with any kindred spirit. They are in tune with today, and eager for the tomorrows of the dawning Space Age. , ^ , , , , , .. For the Kenneth Arings — and The program's prospects are not helped by the all our otner citizcns _ we have fact that its proponents seem to have lost most of whatever knack they had for presenting the case for foreign aid forcefully and persuasively. We hear again and again that the Soviet economic challenge in the world is great, that there is a crucial testing between Red China and free India. But the words the foreign aid advocates speak lack fire. They don't stir the blood of the citizen who wonders why he should care. The cause is made to sound tired. The results of the voting in Congress will be tired, too. unless the supporters of the aid program find strong new drums to beat. Duncan Hines The name of Duncan Hines, who died last week, is a household phrase throughout America. He made his fame and fortune in a simple way. In the automobile age, everyone is at liberty to travel the highways and byways of America. He does not follow just the lines of the railroads, as in early days. He constantly finds him- se'f in towns where he has never stopped before. This American wanderer is always wondering: "Where is a good place to eat in this town?" He may not know where the restaurants are. If he can see them, he still can't judge the probable food quality and service to his satisfaction from the newness of the facade or the size of the neon sign. To help the food-loving American motorist Duncan Hines came to the rescue. He published a guide book which can be consulted whenever the need arises. Later he began a system of posting Duncan Hines signs at restaurants and hotels. Grateful to a man who would provide such a wanted service, the American public responded by .patronizing the "good eating" man in a way that made him rich and famous. Go, Bug, Go As you probably know, the Internal Revenue Service takes cognizance of Nature's sudden assaults upon your property. If a whirlwind unroofs your house, you can take an income tax deduction. Up until recently, however, attacks upon your house by termites were not considered in this category. The bureau seemed to feel these depredations were the result of long, premeditated planning by the insects, and simply didn't fit what they had in mind. This policy has now been altered. Henceforth the IRS will try to distinguish between long drawn-out, chronic termite attacks and devastating sudden assault No deductions for the chronic, but deductions allowed for the lightning like visitations. The bureau's entomologists may have some tough decisions ahead. As for you, the taxpayer, if you spot a termite hanging around, get your tax accountant to slip him a note telling him and his crew either to beat it or to start gnawing—quick. The Newsreel "U. S.

You just don't find any storehouse of books to equal it in other towns of 25.000. That we should have such a fine library was determined when Redlands was in its infancy. This was still a village when a central depository of privately owned and loaned books was started. Then A. K. Smiley was inspired to erect and, give a library building. Such "things just didn't happen elsewhere. If there were any similar philanthropies they were from outside of the community, by the generosity of Andrew Carnegie. The lusty Redlands infant, getting off to such a sound start, earned community appreciation and support, which is its foundation to this day. A Redlands orange grower spotted the following column piece by Abe Mellinkoff in the San Francisco Chronicle. Here it is (without quotation marks i— During a break in the Berlin and budget matters last week, the House of Representatives voted to allow growers to paint oranges to look like oranges should look. The measure applies only to Texas and Florida. If the plan works out, I assume California ranchers will be allowed to follow suit. It would only be fair. Because no natural orange could possibly compete with an orange painted to the customer's order. The trouble is that customers get their notions about oranges from four-color ads. And the run- of-the-tree orange can never live up to that star billing. Oranges. like people, come in assorted shapes, sizes and colors. Some are pretty classy. Others • are not so hot. Paint can do wonders. Women learned that a long time ago. Orange growers, not being quite that smart, are just catching up. If the orange grower's wife can paint herself to look something like Marilyn Monroe, there seems no sound reason why he cannot paint his oranges to look something like a Madison avenue orange. Painting oranges of course is only a beginning. Let's' rouge apples. And I know a couple of varieties of grapes that could also stand a little retouching. Nothing is too good, or too phony, for us customers. &EB&UA&y - MAR.CH Teletips One Minute Pulpit For in him dwelleth all the ful ness of the Godhead bodily.— Colossians 2:9.

It stirred a vivid memory of what happened to this writer last December. The sky was as blue as the China Sea beyond. The helicopter which had churned out from Bataan Peninsula three miles away hesitated in midair over a jungle- tangled mass, and then swept down into a patch of weeds. Dry cha/f scattered into the sweltering airj The place: Corregidor. The writer had landed on "The Rock" at the mouth of Manila Bay to see how America had preserved its far Pacific' symbol of ultimate valor. What I saw on this hot. hilly, tadpole-shaded island was an ugly disgrace to the traditional patriotism of the folks back home. Here stood what is perhaps the most dramatic symbol of the courage in the history of our fighting men. Yet, nowhere on the island was there a suggestion that our people were preserving it as a tribute to the heroism of Gen. Jonathan Wainwright's men. Instead of a monument to the fallen heroes and to the 12.000 soldiers who stuck it out in Malinta Tunnel, there was nothing but a trash heap—a forgottten, dirty, neglected hunk of real estate. Ironically, five years ago the island was officially designated a shrine. Still, not even a flag waved on Corregidor. Neither Philippine nor American. Now, back in the heart of our democracy. Emmet O'Neal was beseeching our congressmen for help in perpetuating the hallowed memory of Corregidor. Mr. O'Neal, former ambassador to the Philip pines, is chairman of the Corregidor-Bataan Memorial Commission. The commission plans a $7.5 million monument, one that would rise 750 feet above the Philippine Sea. The shaft would be illuminated by night so it could be seen from ships far at sea and from as far away as Manila. The base would hold a library and auditorium. Last year, the House of Representatives passed the Monument Bill, but time ran out before the measure got tn the Senate. The sum of $7.5 million is a big piece of money, but Mr. O'Neal's point is that it's cheap when you consider it would weld our parting relations with the Filipinos. The monument would be a symbol for the four million men who fought on our side in the Far East. Thus, it would be. a memorial to the Filipinos as well. Corregidor is vacant now except for a small army detachment of Filipinos clearing away for salvage the big rusted guns and several thousand warheads still stacked in piles in the hills. The gaping shells of old barracks remain as they were 17 years ago, except that the jungle grows through the middle of them. Only improvement to the Island's wartime landmarks is a string of e'ectric lights affixed haphazardly through the main part of the 1,400-tunnel in the heart of Malinta Hill. Ribald phrases have been scrawled on the walls. So, now, finally, 17 years after the island fell, Corregidor is inspiring patriotic action. The little man, looking from the sidelines, would be moved to suggest quietly that a gesture of true pariotism could be accomplished simply, effectively, inexpensively. Such as raising the colors over Corregidor. IN HOLLYWOOD Whodunit? Not Bubbles, The 1,700-Pound TV 'Actress' By Erskine Johnson HOLLYWOOD—Twenty pounds of squid, even ocean fresh, as reward for a TV appearance can't compare to what Perry Como will be making on his new contract. But Bub. bles, a captive 1.700-pound black pilot whale, leaped 15 feet out of her private swimming pool to grab the loot. There are some human actors who leap out of their pools, too, for TV loot. But not quite 15 feet, you understand. But almost. Bubbles was in camera closeup at the time, and Marlon Brando may or may not be happy to know that even whales are copying his acting style these days. Bubbles scratched her stomach with her tail the minute she landed back in the water. The star attraction of Marineland of the Pacific since her capture off the coast two years ago. Bubbles also will get full screen credit for her TV appearance. The hefty star with the craziest curves in her skin-tight, one-piece bathing suit will be seen in "The Marincland Mystery" April 5 in the "Richard Diamond" murder series. David Janssen tracks a killer to Marineland and during the usual chase the poor fellow accidentally falls into the pool where Bubbles spends hours giving the fishcye to tourists staring at her through plate glass. But f know whodunit, and it wasn't Bubbles. The producers made sure she wasn't a killer whale. Since Bubbles has a husband a 3.000 -pound male whale named . Squirt who was permitted to work only as his wife's stand-in. or swim-in, I hope this doesn't start one of those typical Hollywood domestic squabbles. But if it happens, you won't catch me referring to it as-a whale of an argument. But I will mention, even if Bubbles is a lady, that when the sound crew recorded her under-water gargling she ad libbed a stomach rumble that darn near sent the soundmen to the hospital with a busted eardrum. Maybe she was just mad about her salary- As Como would say, "twenty pounds of squid, indeed.'" "Wagdh Train" rolled into first place over "Gunsmoke" in the Nielsen and now in the American Research Bureau popularity ratings so it must be official. Runners-up on the ARB February poll: Rifleman. Maverick, Perry Como, The Real McCoys, Have Gun. Will Travel: Wyatt Earp, The Price Is Right, Loretta Young and Perry Mason in ttiat order. Hmm—only four westerns this time! Estimated audience in the "Wagon Train" rating was 54,630,000. THE FAMILY DOCTOR Menopause Is A Change In Life—Not The End Of It By Edwin P. Jordan, M.D. At any one time millions of women are in the stage of life known as the menopause, which probably accounts for the large number of letters I receive on that subject. I have questions before me asking whether the menopause is responsible for dizziness, nervousness, panic, and a whole lot of other unpleasant symptons. At the start it should be emphasized that most women pass through this phase of life without either serious physical or mental disturbance. It is properly considered as a normal change in the physiological functions and represents principally a decrease in the activity of some of the hormones manufactured by feminine glands and not simply as the cessation of the . menses. Considered this way, the change of life, or menopause, is a gradual process and does involve changes in t h e human body, as well as mental adjustments. The most constant reflection of the change of life is the cessation of the menses and the impossibility of further reproduction. However, this should not lead to concern. Nature has provided these changes for the "benefit of both of the individual woman and for mankind as a whole. It would hardly seem beneficial for wom an to be able to go on producing children into her 60s or 70s. If symptoms related to lessened hormone production do develop, the most common are hot flashes, abnormal menses, a tendency to melancholy, putting on weight, headaches and sleeplessness. However, glandular products are now availavle which can be given by injection or by mouth which will help most of those whose symptoms are severe enough. They act by supplying some of the internal secretion which the patient's own glands fail to manufacture. Adjusting the size of the dose to the need is desirable. Many women are greatly concerned about the possibilities for pregnancy during the latter stages of the menopause. It is difficult to tell exactly when conception is no longer possible, and pregnancies have occurred as late as 55 years of age or beyono. In general, however, there is little chance of conceiving when a year or more has passed since the last period and the woman is over 50. During the usual two or three- year period of adjustment to the menopause, a woman should be active, both mentally and physically. At this time old interests can be renewed profitably and new ones developed. It should NOT be considered as the beginning of old age.
