Redlands Daily Facts, 6 - Monday, Mar. 30, 1959 Christians Rejoice In Easter Celebrations United Press International Christians rejoiced Sunday in celebration of the resurrection of their Saviour and its promise of eternal life. Easter senices in huge cathedrals and humble country churches, on mountain tops and at ships at sea repeated the message which gives Christianity its meaning: "He is not here; for He is risen." Cold weather cut attendance at outdoor services in the northeast and occasional rain dampened the Easter parade in the southeast. Despite near freezing temperatures, an estimated 800,000 persons turned out to parade along York's Fifth Ave. The cold and a Good Friday snowstorm froze out the traditional floral display at Rockefeller Center. At the other end of the country, clear, mild weather brought out a throng of about 20,000 persons at Easter service in California's Hollywood Bowl. Overseas, almost perfect spring weather greeted an unprecedented number of foreign pilgrims who flocked to Holy Jerusalem, where Christ was crucified nearly 2.000 years ago. Among the pilgrims were Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt and Queen Elizabeth of Belgium. At Rome, Pope John XXIII said Slass at St. Peter's Basilica and prayed that world leaders would bring an end to discord "in ths superior interests of peace in the world." After the two-hour Mass, the pontiff stepped outside and gave his Easter blessing to thousands of persons who stood in a steady rain in St. Peter's Square. Easter went virtually unnoticed in Moscow and the only service was at the Roman Catholic Church where Mass was said Saturday night for a capacity crowd. One Russian Orthodox Church does not celebrate Easter until May. Speaking at the Hollywood Bowl service. Agriculture Secretary Ezra T. Benson, a church leader, said history's greatest events are those which affect the greatest number of persons for the longest periods of time. "By this standard, no event could" be more important to individuals or nations than the resurrection of the Master," Benson said.

Brown To Push Program Despite Angry Cries Young Ballerina Told After Show Of Father's Death NEWARK. N. J. (UPI) — A pretty 13-year-old prima ballerina, who danced the role of Cinderella 1 on television Saturday night unaware that her father had died attended his funeral Sunday. Sharon Lent led 18 dancers in the fairy tale on the Perry Como show. When it was over she, learned that her father, Sanford Lent, 43, a taxi driver, had died Friday in a. hospital ' Members of the cast and her mother had managed to keep the news from her until the make-believe magic of the show was over. Afterward, she posed willingly for news photographers, thinking the pictures were part of show business. Then she returned home, still exuberant from dancing before an audience of millions and asked her mother: "Did you and daddy watch me?" Mrs. Lent gently explained that Sharon's father, ill for 11 years, had died Friday in Beth Israel Hospital. "It can't be," Sharon cried. She wept for some time, but then added, "He must have been watching me anyway." The talented youngster sobbed Sunday through the simple 20-minute service for her father. By JERRY REYNOLDS United Press International SACRAMEXTO (UPI) — Gov. Edmund G. Brown will continue to push through his tax and water program with a firm hand despite angry cries from the Legislature. Hale Champion, Brown's press secretary, said the governor and his staff talked about the situation Friday morning and that there was "no change" from the present handling of the administration program. The clamor arose last week when a proposed aqueduct in the district of Assemblyman James L. Holmes (R-Santa Barbara* was cut from the budget after Holmes voted against the Brown program. Holmes claimed he was being spanked for an anti-administration vote. Brown said this might be true, and he unleashed an attack on "hypocrites and demagogues who ask for appropriations of money then refuse to vote for taxes." Senate Stands Together Two reactions developed because of the case: —A Senate leader served notice that the administration should not permit such a case in the upper house or it would cause the 39 other senators to come to the rescue of the injured party. —Assemblyman Harold K. Levering (R-Los Angeles) said he detected a minor revolt brewing among some Assembly Democrats SELL IT TOMORROW With an Inexpensive Classified Ad 39 Women Told They Had Won Mother Contest NEW YORK (UPI)-The "mother of the year" for the state of Kansas, a title that 39 women from the Sunflower State may already have been told they won, will be officially selected today. The American Mother's Committee admitted Sunday that letters to 39 women last week informing them of their selection as the state's "mother of the year" were sent out in error. They got mixed in with some oilier mail. Only two of the falsely-notified mothers have acknowledged receipt of the letters so far—Mrs. Fred Gould of Arkansas City and Mrs. Nellie Krueger of Washington, Kan. The committee thinks the other 37 false letters also went to women from Kansas, but it can't be sure until the recipients come forward. Mrs. Ailcen C. Fogarty. national director of the committee, said the committee had been mailing out notices to all of its 5,000 members inviting them to come to New York for the festivities here May 4-8 when the national "mother of the year" will be picked from among the 52 finalists. Somehow or other, Mrs. Fo garty said. 39 of the 52 form letters waiting on hand to be sent to the state winners got mixed in 1 with the other notices and were sent out. "The clerks were working through the states alphabetically," said Mrs. Fogarty. "That's why we think they all went to Kansas." Selection of the real Kansas "mother of the year" today was to be made, Mrs. Fogarty said, from a list of carefully screened nominees who fill rigid qualifications. But Mrs. Fogarty thinks the recipients of the 39 false letters shouldn't have become excited. "It's a very silly thing on a person's part" she said. "If I received a letter saying I was Queen Elizabeth wouldn't I investigate?" SHORT RIBS By FRANK O'NEAL one of whom called the adminis tralion action in the Holmes case a Gestapo action. The Senate leader pointed out that the close-knit upper house traditionally has stood together! against executive pressure. "Otherwise a governor, any governor, would pick us off one by one," he said. Levering said Julian Beck, a former judge and legislator who now is Brown's legislative secretary, was "using a club" to push the Brown program through. He named several Democrats whom he said were disgruntled over handling of the Holmes case. Tax Bills Progress Meanwhile, the Brown program for new and higher taxes moved ahead another notch. His three- cent a pack cigarette tax and a boost in higher income tax rates moved to the Assembly Ways and Means Committee for technical approval before going to the lower house floor. The two measures were approved by the Assembly Revenue and Tax Committee in their first major test last Thursday. One of those who voted for the taxes in committee said he had been promised an appointment for one of his constituents by the Brown administration. , «, Another, who previously had an- rattlesnake and an African cobra, nounced against taxes and who to a snake farm at Grants Pass, also wanted an appropriation for " his district, changed his stand and voted for one of the bills. 12 Foot King Cobra Stolen From Truck SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) —A 12- foot king cobra, one of the world's deadliest snakes, was stolen from ,the cab of a truck early today in downtown San Francisco.
