12—Mar.2T,1959 Redlands Daily facts HISTORY'S GREATEST CHARITY: Redlands Must Pay For Civic Center To Get One In deciding that the proposed county office building does not belong on North Center street, the Planning Commission reasserted that it should be placed in the Civic Center area. Ideally, this is correct. The more central the location of the building, the greater will be the place-convenience to the public. The more our public buildings are grouped, the more orderly will be the heart of the city. The more that buildings are put in their proper place, the more attractive the town will be. For these, and other reasons, the Master Plan for the City of Redlands provides a civic center area. Generally, it is the neighborhood of the City Hall, the Library and the Post Office. It is this blueprint for the Redlands of tomorrow that the Planning Commission upholds. But until the present day, Redlands has not come face to face with an actual proposition to build a building in this civic center. The City Hall, which sits on a cramped lot, with no room for expansion, and with no parking lot, predates the master plan. The Post Office, also with no public parking, is over 25 years of age. The fine arts building, south of the Prosellis, was a beautiful idea, but died aborning. There was no money for it. The county of San Bernardino is the first agency to seek a specific parcel of property on which to build. And all efforts ha%'e been stymied. The trouble is money. San Bernardino County has about 530,000 budgeted for the real estate. That figure comes out of the bond issue in which funds were earmarked for branches in various cities and localities including Yucaipa, Redlands, Fontana, Ontario, 29-Palms and Barstow. It is politically unlikely that the county could spend much more here than it has in other cities, even if the money could be found. When you go hunting for real estate in the civic center area you find that S30.000 doesn't buy much ground. The heart, of the city was subdivided into residence lots in pioneer days, and houses were built on those properties. To assemble enough property for an office building and a parking lot requires the purchase of various houses and of assembling various smaller lots to make one large property. The answer is that 530,000 does not buy civic center real estate. Redevelopment does not come that cheap. So, there must be some way of solving the financial problem, or there never will be a civic center development. Instead, the county building will go out in the boondocks today. Tomorrow, when the City Hall becomes impossibly crowded, the city itself will go elsewhere for less expensive real estate. Zoning controls, operating in that economic climate, will not hold the city together but will accentuate disintegration. If the Civic Center dream is to come true, then our first step as a community is to face up to the current lesson of the county building site stalemate. And this is it: We can only have a true civic center development if we are willing to pay for it.. It's going to take money, public money, substantial money. And probably it will be mostly Redlands money. That is the problem. The solution, as yet invisible, calls for inspired leadership. Good News From England The world of medicine has been increasingly troubled in recent days at the growth of virus and bacteria strains resistant to antibiotics. Dangerous outbreaks of infection in U. S. hospitals have highlighted the problem. It is wonderful news, therefore, that a new scientific break-through in the penicillin field promises a curb on this trend. A team of scientists working in Britain has labored to produce the basic substance of penicillin by precise chemical synthesis, with the result that its nature can be endlessly varied to yield antibiotics likely to be effective against many organisms now resistant. Also probable is a series of cures of diseases heretofore not touched by penicillin, and there is said to be prospect that penicillin derivatives can Be found for persons allergic to the types now available. This could be one of the biggest advances in medicine since the antibiotics were first discovered. The British researchers merit the heartfelt thanks of humanity everywhere. The Newsreel Dan the Dip worries a lot about the H-bomb. He has recurrent nightmares in which he is the last man left on earth, with no pockets to pick. Physical fitness for American youth will never get anywhere until somebody invents a 525 piece of equipment that you have to have in order to do push-ups. Geologists report that if the earth's crust were turned inside out it wouldn't look much different So let's not do it So far only the diplomats have used the word "disengagement," but it might be useful in the newspapers' society section for the girl who would like to announce that she has sent back the ring. , Crucifixion Was Most Horrible Form Of Death Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore On Friday, the Thirteenth o f February, while searching for Col. Harry Moseley of Redlands, a Marine Corps pilot crashed a helicopter in the mountains east of Redlands. That night, and the next morning, the four marines were rescued by a second El Toro whirli­ bird and flown back to Norton, where they were found to be sound of limb and wind. The flying machine, however, was beyond rescue and we have just been checking up to see whatever became of it. Jim Kofahl of Montrose and Bill Maxwell of Anaheim are partners in the aircraft parts business. They sell. They buy. They scrounge. Often they deal with the Marine Corps at El Toro. buying from surplus and from the scrap yard. Naturally, they cooperate with the Marines in any way they can. When the big Sikorski-33 went down in our mountains. Maxwell and Kofahl became interested. They offered to help the military boys get out all of the helicopter equipment that is in any way valuable to them. In return, would the Marine corps officially abandon the remainder of the wTeck so they could salvage it? Indeed, the Marine corps would and we have it from Maxwell that that is what happened. The Forest Service, however, was another official party at interest since the Sikorsky came down on public land. Again proceeding on a policy of cooperation. Maxwell and Kofahl agreed to build about a mile of cat track. This would enable themselves and the Marine corps to conduct salvage operations. It would also extend the territory into which forest service fire fighters can reach with mechanized equipment.. Some three weeks ago Carl Hickerson went out to the Raywood Flats with the enterprising Maxwell and Kofahl to line out the cat track. According to what Maxwell reports, the helicopter was badly wrecked. As the ship came down the rotor chewed into the surrounding trees and was mangled. The S-58 then tipped forward and crashed down on its fat nose. The landing gear was torn off and this split at least one fuel tank. The fuselage was impaled upon a stump. When the ship came to rest, the engine was half way 1 out. The intricate and costly transmission was out of kilter' from shock. "The ship should have exploded." Maxwell says. "But the pilot was really thinking. He cut the gas, and the engine was dead when they landed." The helicopter struck the forest only a 100 yards or so from the wreckage of the Hill, Cessna which was found last summer. In both crashes the electronic gear bad considerable salvage value. Mr. Maxwell was pleased t o help the Marines recover the helicopter radios and gadgets which he says may have been worth $80,000, although that figure sounds mighty high to us. After other items having value to the Marine corps were removed, the identification was blown up and the ship was abandoned to the civilian enterprisers. What can Maxwell and Kofahl do with the parts they recover? If their dreams come true they will some day be able to assemble a whirlibird of their own. They can't afford to buy one whole, but maybe they can put one together, piece at a time over a period of years. Already they own an engine from a Marine helicopter which was dunked in the ocean. Miscellaneous parts have turned up in stirpes. Other salvage oppor- Teletips TOP SHOW — 7:00 — Chan. 4. Boxing. 10-round bout features featherweights Paul Jorgenson and Harold Gomez. 7:00—Chan. 2.

One Minute Pulpit But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. — James 5:12. I take one decisive and immediate step, and resign my all to the sufficiency of my Saviour. — Thomas Chalmers. SELL IT TOMORROW With an Inexpensive Classified Ad CROWD DRAWS SUSPICION BALDWIN PARK, Calif. (UPI) —Police, curious by a sudden increase in business at a market, found the answer Wednesday. Owner Catalado Conscntino, 38, and another man, Peter Flaxa, 67, were arrested on charges of taking horse race bets at the market. By LOUIS CASSELS United Prats International The gospel accounts tell the story in four stark words: ". . . and they crucified him." No elaboration was necessary, at the time the gospels were written, to convey the agony of Jesus' death. Crucifixon was known throughout the Roman world as the most horrible form of execution ever devised. It was slow death by torture. This form of capital punishment was usually reserved for slaves and insurrectionists. The condemned man was nailed through his hands and feet to a wooden cross, and left to hang there until he died of what modern medical science would describe as a state of shock induced by excruciating pain. It usually required about 12 hours for a crucified man to die. Cicero records that most of the victims became raving maniacs. It was often necessary, he adds, to cut out their tongues to put a stop to their terrible screams and curses. Jesus had already undergone many hours of suffering before lie reached the skull-shaped hill called Golgotha on which his cross was planted. During the long hours of the night, the soldiers had buffeted liim and spat upon him, fitting a purple robe around his shoulders and thrusting a sharp crown of thorns onto bis head to mock the "king of the Jews." Pilate had "scourged" him. A scourging was a brutal beating administered to prisoners with a special kind of whip whose many thongs were loaded with bits of metal. In keeping with Roman custom, he was required to carry the heavy wooden crossbar to which his outstretched arms would be nailed. 'The upright pole of the cross was already in place at the execution site.) Exhausted by his sleepless night and the beating he had received, Jesus stumbled un­ der the. load. The guards compelled a bystander, Simon of Cyrene, to carry the cross for , Jesus. Cyrene was a town of North Africa, and an ancient legend holds that Simon was a Negro, who later became a Christian apostle. At Golgotha, Jesus was stripped to a Join cloth and the Roman soldiers rolled dice for his clothing. He was offered wine containing an opiate — an act of mercy which women of Jerusalem customarily extended to crucified men. But he would not take the pain-easing drug. It was nine o'clock on a Friday morning when they nailed, him to the cross. Curious onlookers waited for him to curse and wail like other crucified men. When he remained silent, some of them began to taunt him. "If you're the Messiah," they said, "come down from that pole, and we'll believe in you." "Father, forgive them," he said, "for they know not what they do." Toward the end of his six-hour ordeal on the cross, Jesus uttered a cry that has been a source of great perplexity to his followers. He cried: ".My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Some modern scholars point out that these are the opening words of the 22nd Psalm — • psalm that goes on to answer the question with a fervent affirmation of faith in God's unchanging love. Others, however, see in this cry of despair a brief glimpse of the ultimate .•'Sony which Jesus suffered on the cross—that of "bearing the sins of all mankind," taking on himself the total burden of humanity's guilt and alienation from God. When the end finally came, at 3 p.m.. Jesus was once again serene. His dying words were: "Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit." IN HOLLYWOOD 'Up Periscope,' Gobs Cry; Joan Sails With The Fleet By Erskine Johnson HOLLYWOOD — Hollywood and GrapeVine: So Mickey Cohen and gal pal Liz Renay will play themselves in a film subject close to them, "The Liz Renay Story." I can almost hear the dialog: Liz: "Isn't it a beautiful day. Mickey?" Mickey: "I refuse to answer on grounds that I may incriminate myself." Sophia Loren may be going western in "Heller With a Gun," but she's walkin', not ridin'. Scenes showing her going that- away on a horse were cut from the script. As Sophia tells it: "I flunked the riding lessons. I just couldn't get the rhythm of it." A wire service flashed Paramount that Clark Gable had "expired." Very much alive on the set of "But Not for Me," Mr. G. laugh .d: "I don't mind death rumors but 'expired' sounds like my subscription ran out." The Gables, by the way. head for Europe June 26 for some travel and fun before he goes to Italy in mid-August to star in "Bay of Naples." NEWS ITEM: "The Nigerian government will build Africa's first TV station." Man. are those natives going to be restless! A live pin-up girl for the crew of a U.S. submarine to whistle at may be unfair to Brigitte Bardot postcards and'Marilyn Monroe calendars, but the idea has Joan O'Brien's vote. As an Army nurse being evacuated from Manila, she's the doll aboard the sub who gets laughs in a World War II comedy, "Operation Petticoat." If you've been wondering where you heard the name of Joan O'Brien, she's the gorgeous doll who warbled three songs a day for four years on Bob Crosby's daytime TV s h o w. She went right from school, at 17. to stardom. When the Crosby show faded away in 1957, J0---1 appeared in one movie at MGM. Then she married Jack Meyers of NBC, became the mother of a daughter in 1958, and now she will mix movie emoting with singing appearances. The sub training school at New London will never be the same after the boys let Joan loose aboard the sub. She accidentally leans on a torpedo firing button — and the torpedo scores a direct hit on a truck parked on a nearby beach. And after Cary Grant squeezes past her in the sub's narrow passageway, he removes a pack of crushed cigarettes from hii shirt pocket, and offers her one, saying: "You know, there must be an easier way to fight a war." THE FAMILY DOCTOR Light Or Serious, Infection Of Fingernail Requires Treatment By Edwin P. Jordan, M.D. Most people at one time or another have liad an infection around the base of a fingernail. Q—Please say something about infections at the root of the nails called onychia. — G. A—This infection of the nailbed also carries the name paronychia. The infection may be the result of germs or of fungi. The exact cause has to be determined since the treatment it different. In those cases caused by germs, antibiotics in ointments or taken orally may be needed. Warm antiseptic soaks are commonly used. Sometimes cutting into the area and drainage may be required. In very severe cases X-ray treatment or removal of the nail may have to be used. These remarks, of course, refer to the severer types, but most such infections are unpleasant enough to require accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. In general, housework, laundrying and similar irritations to the base of the nail have to be avoided. Q—Could you settle an argument between us women? Is it possible to have a seven-months baby weighing about seven pounds?— F.H. A—If this question is asked for the reason I think it is, I should prefer not to answer. Why net change to some other argument? Q—For the past year I have had trouble with my thyroid gland. Although I am nervous and can't seerrj to relax, the thing that wor­ ries me most is that my hair is falling out excessively. Will I get completely bald, or does it grow back just as rapidly? — Mrs. S. A—It is possible for the hair to fall out in the presence of certain glandular disturbances, i n- cluding those of the thyroid. You should have a basal metabolic test taken and probably other examinations to see if it is trouble with the thyroid which is responsible for your loss of hair. If the thyroid is not secreting enough of its hormone, it may be that your hair situation can bo improved by taking appropriate amounts of thyroid extract. Q—Please explain the expression "mittelschmerz." — S.B. A—This is a word of German origin which refers to pain coming between the monthly periods. It is believed to be related to the extrusion of the egg from the ovary — in other words, ovulation — and is a common complaint. Q—Would you say something about a dead faint? Does the blood pressure go down? — B.Y.O. A—Fainting is considered to be the result of a temporary lessening of the blood flow in the brain, or at least part of it, which leads to loss of consciousness. It is likely that the blood pressure wilt drop somewhat for a short time, but it is the blood flow in the brain which is primarily responsible. > <
