16 - Wed., Jan. 22, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts Johnson bows to Demo Conservatives By Doris Fleeson WASHINGTON — President Johnson has bowed again to the conservatives of his party in his economic message and economy budget. Only time will prove the validity of his rosy economic outlook and demonstrate his ability to hold down spending. The first installment on the political price for the new tax bill had already been paid by the late President Kennedy, who jettisoned tax reform to please House Ways and Means Chairman Wilbur Mills. The new President has made similar obeisance to Chairman Harry F. Byrd of the Senate Finance Committee with budget cuts and acceptance of a wide range of tax cuts. The President will seek lo compensate for these conservative moves with his war on poverty. Hix message outlining that program will appear shortly. group includes men on whom the President has long relied. Even so, it appears that he will be in good shape for the short run, and the manner in which the situation has developed poses a problem for Republican strategists. Arguing against prosperity has never proved politically profitable, and the irritable comments of some Republican leaders suggest that they realize it very well. ( Their complaints that the | President is making impossible: promises he does not even believe have a faint flavor of -sour grapes, another type of argument that does not pay off in politics. Business today is applauding the President. Its own economists rather generally support the Presidential forecasts of a good year, particularly when and as the tax bill becomes law. This is good news politically for the Democrats. The election is less than 10 months ahead, and it is reasonable to suppose that things can't get too bad in that time, even if they fall short of the ideal. Businessmen personally tend to vote for Republicans, but if they will just keep people at work, the other party figures it can win a majority at the ballot box. Some of the President's advisers have warned him that the lax bill at its best will not do all that is expected of it. They say in particular that it will do little to create new jobs for the younger generation streaming jYork State history. One Rockefeller supporter puts it that "the President has run off with Senator Goldwater's clothes and that's all right with us, but we are having our own troubles trying to argue that the rosy Johnson visions just aren't so." I Lending particular bitterness to these remarks is Gov. Nelson Rockefeller's trouble w i t h his own budget. He is proposing an "austerity" total of nearly S3 billion at Albany today. By law, that budget must be balanced. To do it, according to Albany sources, he has a plan to raise an extra S150 million in revenue by requiring business firms to pay half of next year's taxes in advance. This would naturally not be popular with business. Any kind of fiscal trouble j mars the Governor's effort to appear conservative with money, a prime aspect of his campaign for the G.O.P.

"Hitch 1 suspense ropes on By Erskine Johnson HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) —,because Tippi's debut in "The cherub has washed the of his last two movies his hands. He sits with folded innocently in his Birds" was not exactly impres sivc. But Hitchcock is still betting on h e r "rare high style once represented in films by Claudettc Colbert and Ingrid Bergman." In his enthusiasm, he even says: The other day I received a "crystal ball" study from one of our leading financial institu tions. They attempted to an swer the question, "How long can California sustain its current rate of growth?" This peek into our future should be of interest to us all. Here is a summary: The State's leaders in business, labor and government mean to see that economic growth continues indefinitely. Great efforts are being made lo provide water and power for unlimited future development and to create greater diversity in our job structure. By 1970, there will probably be about 21 million Californians—some 3.3 million more than today. San Bernardino county will grow accordingly. Employment should reach nearly 8 million by 1970 — a full 30 per cent above the 1960 level. There will be an accompanying increase in personal in come. Per capita income will increase from today's $2,871 to around $3,300. In all likelihood, California will develope the highest total personal income in the union. The blood from them lap.

But agricultural employment will continue to account for a de creasing percentage of the State's labor force. There will be serious changes and substan tial shifts in the pattern of land usage due to the bracero pro gram, increased mechanization and improvements in farm pro ductivity, organization and tech niques. California stands to benefit greatly from the increased em phasis throughout the country on foreign trade. The State's ports have traditionally provided the "Gateway to the Ori ent". As underdeveloped nations reach to attain higher standards of living, as industrialized na tions continue to expand, and as U.S. business and industry take greater advantage of over seas markets, California will become an even more important foreign commerce center. In short, California's profile will continue to show expansion and change. It will behoove our San Bernardino County labor leaders, boards of trade, chambers of commerce, and political leaders to work toward providing a favorable business atmos phere, and job opportunities to meet this challenge.

WASHINGTON Watch this 'comer* among Johnson's aides By Bruce Biossat WASHINGTON — (NEA) — A man to watch more and more in President Lyndon Johnson's sprawling family of aides and friends is Horace Busby. Short, stocky, quiet-spoken, (he 39-year-old Washington public relations consultant is perhaps the least heralded of the President's close associates. This seems bound to change. , Operating out of an office just a few blocks from the White House, Busby right now finds aj good many of his days pre-empt- ted by presidential command. Recently he and his wife were on the limited guest list w h e n Johnson spent a weekend at Camp David in Maryland. Busby usually is described as a speech writer, and this he has often been. But his usefulness to the President appears to be a good deal broader — and in the policy-shaping area. elbow in important meetings and conferences. Acquaintances label Busby as close-mouthed and not eager for attention. Biographical details on him are hard to come by. The available evidence suggests, however, that his link to the President may bear marked resemblance to the tie between the late President John F. Kennedy and the gifted Theodore Sorensen, who has announced his resignation from the White House staff effective Feb. 29. For one thing. Busby has tre mendous seniority with Johnson. His working association dates back to the President's days in the House. He helped in Johnson's successful 1948 campaign for the Senate and stayed with him for a time thereafter. Then the bond was broken for a time, but Busby frequently was summoned in subsequent years to serve as a consultant to the Senate Preparedness subcommittee which Johnson head ed. During the nearly three years of Johnson's service as vice president. Busby continued to answer the call whenever it was given. On his several missions abroad for Kennedy, Johnson took Bus by along and kept him at his She didn't see how it ended SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (UPI)Santa Cruz sheriffs desputies have smashed an extortion and blackmail plot attempted by a 12-year-old girl, who said she was inspired by a television program. The youngster, who sent a letter to a stranger demanding $10, told deputies she didn't realize the television extortionist was arrested — because her mother made her go to bed before the program was over. I Some who have observed Bus by see his value as this: In a fashion different from Walter Jenkins, the President's close-in administrative aide Busby seems able to grasp the mode and trend of Johnson's thinking. More than most, he is a perceptive judge of the President's manifold complexities. It used to be said of Sorensen that he functioned almost as the other half of Kennedy's brain. This early, no one is saying this of Busby. But he is clearly a candidate for such a role. Nor are Busby's writing talents small. One who knows him rates him a "very facile man at the typewriter." With Sorensen's writing skills lost to the Presi-j dent a few weeks hence, the prospect is good that Busby will have a considerable hand in helping to prepare Johnson', public utterances in the time ahead. Himself a former Texas news man, Busby is, of course, in easy sympathy with the Presi dent's basic speech style. All these things considered, it is odd that this young man has thus far been largely overlooked in the voluminous speculations about who does what for Lyn don Johnson. Time — and perhaps the President himself — will remedy that. but this time all of it is not in the script. For the first time in his career Hitchcock is in volvcd in a suspense drama of his own making, on a personal level. The suspense of "Mamie' lurks in the shadows of its sets. Is Alfred Hitchcock guessing right about a "cool blonde named Tippi Hcdren. a fashion and television model he introduced in "The Birds"? It is the biggest suspense drama of the new year in Hollywood. Princess Grace (Kelly) was Hitchcock's original choice for the starring role of "Mamie." She accepted the part, then bowed out when, she said, there were protests from the people of Monaco. Now Tippi, who had never acted before "The Birds," is starring in "Marnie." It is a challenging role, worthy of an Oscar winner. She appears in 517 of the 528 scenes. She has four personality transformations, which include five changes of hair color and 15 varied hair styles. Hollywood eyebrows are lifted Is Hitch right? That's the suspense of "Marine." As Mamie, Tippi plays a liar and a compulsive thief. But she's clever. She has never been caught. There's only one threat to Mamie's life — a man's love. She hates men. Rather than return one man's love, Mamie's psychological fears drive her to attempted suicide on her honeymoon. "After two shockers (Psycho and The Birds), I decided it was time for me to return to psychological drama," Hitch explains. He mentions "Spellbound" and "Notorious," his hit films of another day. "These," he says, "were the kind of stories movies were made of. I compare 'Mamie to 'Spellbound.' A bizare situation, a psychological roller coaster ride." Hitchcock's genius at suspense is legendary in the movie world. So are his briefi appearances in all of his films, which he will make as usual in Mamie." But suspense on a personal level is something new for the old master of chills. Sam fights Sam After first skirmish sides fall back, regroup Baby dies in home fire FIELDBROOK (UPI)- Bobby Loucke, 14 months, died Tucs day night in his crib when fire engulfed his home in this Hum boldt County town. The boy's mother was out for a few minutes and the father was in the back yard when neighbors heard an explosion and saw the house burst into flame. Firemen chopped their way into the bedroom and found the infant dead. The house burned to the ground within a few min utes. A fire department spokes man said faulty wiring was be lieved to have led to the fire, but said a full investigation would be made into the blaze. Bill favors dog control ATLANTA (UPD—The House Special Judiciary Committee approved a bill Tuesday that would make it a misdemeanor for people to abandon unwanted dogs. The author of the bill, Rep. Grady Coker, said many of the stray dogs become wild animals and kill pigs, sheep and chickens and suck eggs. i De Gaulle may recognize Red China's regime By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analayst When President Charle de Gaulle vetoed British membership in the European commu nity and in effect turned his back on both the United States and Britain he deliberately was creating a vacuum which he obviously intended France to fill. Now, to the distress of the United States, he apparently intends to recognize the Red Chinese Peking regime, creating another vacuum which he also intends France to fill. It was just a year ago that De Gaulle delivered the one lap to those to whom he refers as the "Anglo-Saxons", and it is being widely predicted that the second will be administered soon through the same medium the first, a news conference on Jan. 31. But to suggest, as has been done, that De Gaulle simply is ening a score born of his difficulties with the Americans and the British in World War II, is a mistake downgrading the man. Downgrades Grand Design It, further, downgrades the grand design which De Gaulle extended first to Europe and Africa and now seeks to extend to Asia. First and foremost this is to restore the voice of France in world affairs. De Gaulle and the United States are in collision in three vital areas: —The Atlantic alliance which De Gaulle opposes because it interferes with his own design for French leadership, in Europe. —Continuing U.S. talks with Russia, the partial nuclear test ban and the apparent tendency of the United States to side with Russia against China in the in­ tramural dispute over Commu nist ideology. —De Gaulle's advocacy of neutralism in Indochina and a united Viet Nam as opposed to the militant U.S. effort to roll back or at least contain communism. Other elements, of course, enter in. Paris dispatches indicate that De Gaulle believes he has Red Chinese acceptance of French recognition of both Peking and the Nationalist Chinese admin istration of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek on Formosa. This would imply recognition of the "two Chinas" idea which both Peking and Taipei have denounced in the past. Might Break Bar Opponents of Red Chinese on try into the United Nations fear that French recognition will make it difficult, if not impossible, to bar the regime next year, particularly if France and the French African community vote in favor. I Red China is the sworn enemy of the United States and is the advocate of violent revolution everywhere in the world. The Korean War still is unfinished and neutralism in Viet Nam would negate all previous U.S. efforts and sacrifices to preserve democracy there. Indochina, including Laos and Viet Nam, is a traditional area of French influence. When the United States moved in as the area's chief defender after the Geneva conference of 1954, it was a blow both to French pride and to French prestige. The French attitude is that Red China is a force in being which cannot be ignored, either diplomatically or in trade which: for France now amounts to about $50 million per year. It! is an attitude shared by some in the United States. I NEW YORK (UPI) — It was Snorin' Sam Scheir vs. Slam min' Sam Gutwirth today and of course, it took place in Brooklyn. The way they told it to the judge in Criminal Court Mon day it sounded like a Shakes pearean plot written by James Thurber and acted out by W.C Fields. There was Sam the Snorer facing Sam the Slammer, each accusing the other of creating sleepless nights by the nightmarish combination of lionlike snores and slamming on walls in frustrated retaliation. Sam Scheir, a waiter, said his early morning sleep was disturbed by Sam Gutwirth's pounding on the walls. Sam Gutwirth said he pounded the walls because he was kept awake by the "unnecessary noise" made by Scheir's snor ing. A thin wall separates their apartments in the Brighton sec tion of Brooklyn. Both Sams ad mitted that the droning and humming of the snores and the banging and slamming of walls was making their respective wives almost nervous wrecks. Judge Matthew F, Fagan listened with patience and understanding. At stake was the right of man to have his 40 winks and the repercussion the ruling might have throughout the city RECORD REVIEW NEW YORK (UPI) — The long run of "The Threepenny Opera" off Broadway was one of the theatrical phenomena of our times, yet there was no reason why it should not have played to full houses year after year. Bertholt Brecht's lyrics to Kurt Weill's score were beautifully translated into English, making it possible for the audience to follow the action without a libretto. j But it should be heard in thei original German. Several years ago Vanguard Records issued "Die Dreigroschenoper" in German and now it is available on the original soundtrack of a German - language movie, "The Threepenny Opera" (London M76004). Though the language may be unfamiliar to some, the names of the singers are well-known- Curt Jurgens, Hildegard Neffj and June Ritchie. Kurt Muhl hardt's "Mack the Knife" is quite penetrating. Music sung in foreign languages, though, has not been shunned by Americans. Some of the best selling records were in French ("La Vie En Rose" bj Edith Piaf) and in Italian ("Nel Blue di Pinto Nel Blu by Dom enico Modugno). Recently Soeur Sourire's "Dominique" has enjoyed fantastic popularity. For those who would like to hear Soeur Sourire's bouncy song in English, "Gisele Mac- Kcnzie sings 'Dominique' in French and English" is available on an LP (Design DLP- 168). Gisele rounds out her program with other listenable French folk songs. where wafer-thin walled "luxury" apartment houses have sprouted up faster than one can say Rip Van Winkle. Scheir and Guthwirth have been waging their sounds - in- the-night battle for the past six months. Snoring Sam finally filed a complaint. In court Monday Scheir heard his snores described as being of "gigantic proportions" that sound like "animalistic roars" that vibrate the rooms of the adjoining apartment. Gutwirth's lawyer said "the very anticipation of their (the snore) beginning . . . has shaken my client and his wife, deprived them of sleep, injured their health, and, in fact, they constitute an assault upon their person." Scheir said his nocturnal noises were a natural phenomenon whereas Guthwirth's wall- banging was deliberate and calculated to jangle the nerves of him and his wife. Gutwirth said he had hired an operator of a sound-level meter to measure the volume of the sonorous drones coming through the wall. But Gutwirth said the operator himself fell asleep and started snoring, After listening to the evidence, Fagan advised Gutwirth to file a counter-complaint and invited all parties to return to court on Feb. 13 for a ruling on what he described "this new and alleged violation of the law." byQuincy PERSONAL I GUIDANCE J • nut?

TELEVISION IN REVIEW By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — War is not exactly a hilarious busi ness, and a situation comedy about it is leading with its chin, but we all have our weak nesses, and mine is ABC-TV"; 'MeHale's Navy." I defy you to find on televi sion a more trustworthy face than that belonging to the star of this Tuesday night series Ernest Borgnine. There are those who might rather run into other faces in a dark alley at night, but bis longtime fans can sense, at bottom, the milk of human kidness, not to mention a bottle of beer or two And that, really, is a hefty part of why the series is a popular success. These are high-flying days for Borgnine. His half-hour show, about a PT-boat crew that has its own paradise in the Pacific in World War II, is sail ing along comfortably, and will lmost certainly return next season — its third. He is plan ning matrimony this summer with the only human west of the Mississippi who can shout him down, the demure Ethel Merman. And this Saturday, he is even taking a crack at being emcee of ABC-TV's new weekly ariety series, "The Hollywood Palace." Being a situation comedy, MeHale's Navy" is not always very funny. It is not up to the often comic genius of Phil Silvers in his old "Sgt. Bilko' show. But it has some funnymen in Tim Conway and Carl Ballentine, and Borgnine provides the ballast. He is not going to throw any comedian out of job with his attempted jabs at humor, but his human qualities Brown names Bueche to Riverside board SACRAMENTO (UPI) — Gov. Edmund G. Brown Monday appointed Sunnymead contractor Francis Bueche, 39, a Democrat, to fill the Riverside County Board of Supervisors seat left vacant by the death of Fred McCall. Bueche, a m e m b e r of the school board for seven years, four of them as president, will serve in the post until an election is held. He is a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and served six years as field secretary for former Con-, gressman D.S. Saund. shine through. Tuesday night, for instance, his crew was engaged in trying to manufacture sarongs, and while the laughs were few, the good nature of the star was often infectious. Borgnine. of course, is playing it broad because — as Jackie Gleason found out — that's usually where the audience ratings arc. But beyond that, this popular success in "MeHale's Navy" has been the escape hatch from being typed as "Marty," the lonely bachelor character for which he won an Oscar in the movie of the same name. For a man who began an acting career relatively late in life, Borgnine has turned in a wide range of roles — from the brutal soldier "Fatso" in the film "From Here to Eternity" to "Marty" to Mcllale.

Johnson quits Naval Reserve commission WASHINGTON (UPD—Presi­ dent Johnson has resigned from the U.S. Naval Reserve to underscore his impartiality on issues between the military services, the Defense Department disclosed today. The President sent a letter dated Jan. 17 to Navy Secretary Paul H. Nitze, asking that the resignation be made effective "as soon as possible." Johnson's letter gave no reason for his action. But it was understood he felt that his role as commander in chief for all the military services precluded him from being affiliated with any one of them. The President served as a. Navy commander in World War II, and held that rank in the- Naval Reserve. ; Nag, nag, nag Surgeon hits into General's report heart of home By GAY PAULEY UPI Women's Editor NEW YORK (UPI) —To nag is to irritate by persistent scolding or urging, says Webster. Plenty of such nagging goes on in American households these days given impetus by the U. S. surgeon general's report indicating cigarettes as a health hazard. The bulk of the nagging seems to be on the part of wives as they try to get hus bands to quit cigarettes, or at least cut down on consumption, or switch to pipe or cigar which the surgeon general's report found less risky in developing lung cancer. But an informal survey also showed a surprising portion of the renewed pleas to change smoking habits coming from men who never smoked, who quit smoking long before the surgeon general's report, or were cigar or pipe types—appealing to their wives, the cigarette smokers. Substitute Cigars One husband whose wife is a cigarette smoker said every time she lights up, be reads to her a section of the surgeon general's report—then he fires up a cigar. j One husband whose wife consumes between one and two packs a day of cigarettes said he never nags her. "Even though I've quit," he said, plaintively, "I remember what a pleasant habit it was. I enjoy seeing people around me smoke. It reminds me of the good old days." Another husband, remembering how "rough it was for me to quit five years ago," said he didn't nag the missus because 'I don't want anyone else to go through that. Two ex-smokers would make for a rough marriage." One determined smoker was philosophical about the U. S. report—"I operate on the theory that by the time I get it, they'll have found a cure for it," he said. Peril of Drinking One male office worker said he gets through the day's ten sion without a bit of trouble abstaining, then finds his will power eroded after he's had a couple of drinks at the end ol the day. "I hate myself," he said, "as I put coins in t b e { cigarette machine." Another husband said stopping the habit for him was, on the surface anyway, easy. He was hospitalized for a mildj coronary when his physician f. came by, lifted the pack of» cigarettes nearby and an-? nounced, "you've just stopped V, smoking." 1, The men who said they were--"' hearing about cigarette con-" sumption from the distaff said^ their wives used a variety of; means of "cure." {; There was a supply of cigars '•• suddenly in evidence.
