Page 12 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA JANUARY 27, 1964 Library area parking could be relieved by the new lot A lot of people say they would rather have the beauty of the trees in the Library neighborhood than blacktopped parking areas or wider streets. They wiJl have an opportunity to demonstrate their sincerity later in 1964. This will come when a parking lot is created at Fourth and Citrus, using the land now devoted to the Chevrolet dealership and garage. The municipality and the parking district are going to buy the property and when it is vacated they will tear down the present building. The joint-purchase of this site recognizes that the parking district, which serves retail business houses and offices, will derive but limited utility from the lot. It is more distant from the stores on Orange and State than the existing parking lots. The joint purchase also recognizes that the lot can seive parking to the south, outside of the district, which is to say, the Library neighborhood. If people who are going to the Library, and the Family Service Association, and to Sunkist when there is a major meeting, will use the lot, then there will be some relief of the present congestion. Questions, however, remain: Are people willing to walk a half block? Do they really wish to continue to yield the space now occupied by trees and grass if that means they have to walk a little? Also, the purchase of the parking space must be paid for, in part, through parking fees. Will people actually pay a nickle or a dime to park if they think there is the slightest chance of getting free, curbside parking? We can't continue to park more and more cars in the Library neighborhood unless we make room for them by removing ornamental trees, such as the beauties on Eureka. If the landscaping is to remain, then the cars must go elsewhere to find clear ground. Possibly a few motorists would be willing to walk and to pay if they understood the connection. The leash law The police are going to have a harder time enforcing the dog leash law. That's self-evident from the outcome of the Beaver jury trial. The judge instructed t h e jury that the city had to prove that "Freckles' " owner had willfully permitted him to run at large. This the prosecution was unable to do. Generally, the humane officer does not know how a dog got free — whether his owner deliberately let him loose, or he escaped from confinement or his leash. This has already encouraged a number of citizens to plead innocent and ask for trials, which is their constitutional right. However, the Beaver case makes no change in the underlying reason why a citizen should make a reasonable attempt to obey the leash law. This law is being enforced because the Public Health authorities of California are seeking to prevent rabies. In their opinion there have been enough rabid bats found, and there have been enough cases of rabid dogs in some parts of Southern California, to justify leash law enforcement over a wide area. The situation is not critical. A loose clog here and there is not likely to bring on a calamity. Still, we could have a nasty rabies threat if everybody now said: "To heck with the leash law. I'm not going to pay any attention to it" Love on the fly , An eminent scientist — admittedly "thinking small" in an age when it's practically illegal to think any way but big, big, big — has been studying microscopic brains of teensy insects and suspects that even the lowly fly can hate love, fear and suffer. This is news? Anyone who has ever tried to take a nap or eat outdoors on a warm day has learned the hard way that flies hate people, love to drive them nuts, are expertly afraid of a fly swatter, and suffer acutely from obvious frustration when they are chased away. And we have a hunch that, brains or no brains, emotions or no emotions, flies are going to keep right on being swatted by the people they insist on annoying. If these pests are as smart as the scientist thinks they are, why don't they have sense enough to leave us alone? The Newsreel The televised Winter Olympics may be disappointing to the small fan of the horror shows who is looking forward to the Giant Slalom as some sort of monster from the Black Lagoon. Walter Tippy fears that giving up cigarettes may shorten his life. It's made him so grouchy there's considerable danger somebody in the family will hit him with something sharp. The village show-off who rode all over town without the handlebars has a grandson who lets his seat belt dangle. Mother is willing to talk reasonably with the children about their household chores, but makes it clear that certain areas, such as bed-making and dish-drying are non negotiable. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore The San Bernardino County Society for the Preservation of Colorful Names (which we have just organized) may protest the abandonment of nine roads at the Supervisors public hearing February 10. There are too many bland names like "Main street"', "South avenue" and "Center". Names with zip should be cherished and preserved. Never has the county proposed to wipe off a saltier collection than these which are up on the execution block February 10: Mule Canyon Road. Morning Star Mine road. Copper City road. Goldstone road. Turtle Mountain road. Gold Crown road. New York Mountain road. Steam Wells road. Searles Station road. We don"t care where these roads go or what their con- dilion may be. Save 'cm. we say. as souveniors of the Old West. Now that a money order scandal has blossomed in California we have the perfect prescription for avoiding such pitfalls. Just rely on the Poor Man's Credit Card—money. Everyone has become so conditioned to checks, travelers' checks. Diner's Credit cards and other substitutes for currency that cash, itself, has come to be looked upon as something old fashioned and low brow. The man who hasn't lost his wallet in 20 years is afraid to take a trip to Chicago with S150 in his pocket for fear of losing it. He fusses and worries about getting some kind of substitute money. Why bother? You may shock hotel clerks, waiters and the like by producing a $20 bill — but a twenty is still legal tender in the U.S.A. Thursday, just at twilight, the Vandcnberg AFB launched a Minuteman out over the Pacific. The bird left a trail in the sky that was seen by thousands of people, none of them being us. Some even took fine pictures. We're getting an inferiority complex about never having seen a missile trail in the sunset sky. Several times Rcdlands people have seen such sky writing but we always miss. This in spite of our custom of looking in the west every time we happen to be out of doors at twilight. If you sec anything flying into orbit, run — don't walk — to the nearest telephone and let us know. When the San Bernardino State College opens for business in the windy mouth of Cajon Pass, the students will go to school by a calendar having three quarters, rather than two semesters, per year. This was made certain Friday when the Stale College Trustees voted in San Francisco to go ahead with conversion from a semester to a quarter basis, beginning in 1965, in existing slate colleges. Since San Bernardino will be starting from scratch it will have quarters from the beginning. The quarter system is much to be preferred, each division of the year ending with a vacation — Christmas, Spring and Summer. A student finishes his classes and examinations and doesn't have assignments hanging over his head during his vacation. This also clears the calendar for a summer quarter, equal in length to the Fall, Winter and Spring quarters. That's what the Trustees were thinking about. It makes it possible to utilize the expensive college plants for the maximum number of days per year. U.S. to crack down on trade with Cuba By WILLIAM S.

The answer to that depends on how you feel about jokes like: "What happens when you go to the dentist with a dollar in your pocket?" "You get buck teeth." My own feeling about jokes like that is that there is enough trouble in the world already. I heard it the other night at a local cabaret where a minstrel show was installed for an experimental run to see if it would click before a night club crowd. Good for Business I don't know how well it went over, but if the purpose of a floor show is to drive customers to drink, it must have been good for business. For me it was nostalgia on the rocks. I am old enough to remember when minstrel shows were a common occurrence. In my home town we used to have one just about every other year to raise money for the volunteer fire department. On alternate years, we had a "womanless wedding," which is one of the reasons I left home. It occurred to me, however, that there must be millions of young people who have never seen a minstrel show. My 14- year-old daughter, for instance, had never even beard of them. "What's a minstrel show, big daddy?" she asked when I remarked that I had been to see one. 'Well," I said, "it's a sort of hootenanny with tambourines. These folk singers line up on the stage and take turns dancing and singing and telling funny stories. The one in the middle is known as the 'interlocutor,' which means that he calls the signals. The two on the ends are called 'end men.' One is the 'tight end' and the other is the 'split end.' Except when there is a spread formation, in which case the 'tight end' moves out as a 'flanker.' "In the backfield there is a WASHINGTON — The United States for the first time is publicly warning — instead of merely privately appealing — against a rising determination among Allied nations to send to Castro Cuba supplies which undeniably build up the economy of that Communist lodgment in this hemisphere. For months. Secretary of State Dean Rusk had tried in quiet, informal conversations, to persuade other free world nations that to go on with this sort of trade with Cuba would be to cut across American policy to isolate Castro. And ultimately it would endanger all of that free world. The Allies had listened to him with great politeness — and gone right on shipping to Cuba. Now, in a speech in New York, Rusk has dropped the velvet glove. He has indicated plainly to them that a continuation of their course simply cannot long be accepted by this country. Behind the decision to move from private appeal to official admonition was more than the fact that the Allies have been paying him no heed. In truth, they are preparing to send more, not less, to Cuba. The British, who recently hit us one in the eye by selling Castro a fleet of buses, are now known to be thinking of offering him reconditioned passenger airplanes. The first deal unarguably eased the strain on Castro's transport system — which in the end is vital to his continued control of the island. The second deal also would provide Castro with an augmented air transport fleet clearly adaptable to military use in putting down any revolution. France, meantime, has already sent electrical generating equipment. Spain and Japan, too, are fishing for trade in these tricky waters. The Allied argument has been that the free world does after all do some trading with other communist - bloc countries, so why not with Cuba? Our reply is that the circumstances are poles apart. Yugoslavia, for example, has not mounted a clear and imminent military threat at this or any other Allied nation. Poland is not actively trying to subvert the whole of this, or any other, hemisphere. The blunt fact is that the Allies are adopting the curious position that free world security is a divisible matter. So long as Castro Cuba is not menacing them directly — but only us — there is really no danger to speak of. This is not only foolish; it is profoundly ungenerous. And it is sowing seeds from which the harvest could be most unpleasant for these same Allies. No amount of sophisticated logic- chopping can hide the simple reality that no American Administration — and no Congress — can or will forever tolerate this theory (hat what's yours is ours but what's mine is mine. If the Allies do not now heed our case, this country will be forced, however reluctantly, to consider a third approach. Such an approach would be the application of direct leverage to halt this Cuban trade. It is a trade against the common interests of all the free world. And it does not, even in the most petty and short-term view, bring more than a handful of not very clean money to its practitioners. No one here objects to tha dispatch of the basic things of life — food and medicine — to the Cuban people. Everyone here objects, however, to the dispatch of heavy goods which by no conceivable definition could fall into the category of humanitarian relief. This sort of thing — contributing, as it does, to Cuba's basic economic strength — strikes at the one hope of eventually cleansing the island, short of a military operation which not a single ally would be prepared to support. This one hope is Castro's economic isolation. We have had trouble enough in persuding most of Latin America to join us in this attempt at isolation. Every Allied ship that takes important materials into Havana harbor weakens this hard-won Pan-American effort. For the Latins will say that if the British, the French and the others can get by with just, a little of this far from noble form of quick - buck snatching, why shouldn't they?

Brandstadt No greater tragedy can befall a mother than to find her baby dead in the crib. It is estimated that more than 10.000 such deaths occur in the United States every year. The babies are usually between 2 and 6 months old. The deaths are in the country and in the city, in the homes of both rich and poor. Most of the other causes of death in this age group have been brought under control. Thanks to increased concentration on the problem of these crib deaths there is a good chance that they, too, can be eliminated. Forty or 50 years ago these deaths were attributed to an enlarged thymus. Autopsies showed that this gland was much larger in all these babies than in infants who died of infectious diseases. However, this theory had to be abandoned when it was found that babies who died of skull fracture or other severe accidents also had a large thymus. We now know that all healthy babies hive a large thymus, needed to throw off an infection. The next theory to gain popularity was that these babies, whose faces were often found buried in their pillows or whose heads were covered by their blankets, had smothered to death. This theory placed an unfair burden of guilt on the mothers, many of whom never forgave themselves for their "neglect." Fortunately, this idea was disproved by a courageous doctor who placed infants face down on their pillows, then covered their heads with blankets. He found that even the youngest ones had no difficulty in fighting their way into the open. The doctors next turned to viruses and other infections as a possible cause, but this, too, proved to be a blind alley. Now Dr. Daniel Stowens and cowork- 40-piece band. Half of them play the trombone and the other half play the banjo. Or vice versa. "The trombones and banjos play 'Shine on Harvest Moon' while the end men are singing 'The Camptown Races.' " "It sounds dreamy," my daughter said. "It is," I said. "When you are my age, someone will bring back Elvis Presley." ers at the University of Louisville have made a series of significant observations. Almost all the babies who are victims of this mysterious disease are bottle-fed. A severe type of allergy — anaphylactic shock — would account for the changes in the kidneys found at autopsy. The greatest number of these deaths occur in infants at the age when they are losing the protective antibodies derived from their mother's blood. No claim is as yet being made that allergy to cow's milk is the cause of all crib deaths, but it may well be the cause of a large portion of them. If this is true, there are two things that the mothers of infants under 6 months of age can do: They can use a simple test which consists of placing a piece of indicator paper on a urine-soaked diaper. If the color change indicates the presence of albumin, the baby's kidneys are affected. In such a case the mother should stop giving her baby cow's milk and use goat's milk or soybean milk instead. Other aspects of this tragic problem are still being studied. One Minute Pulpit The Lord has an indictment against Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways, and requite him according to his deeds. — Hoseah 12:2. When the last sea is sailed and the last shallow charted, When the last field is reaped and the last harvest stored. When the last fire is out and the last guest departed. Grant the last prayer that 1 shall pray, Be good to me, O Lord. —John Masefield. GOING UP WASHINGTON (UPI) — Topping all previous highs for the twelfth straight year, the number of students working for degrees this year in the nation's 2,140 colleges and universities total 4,529,000, the National Education Association (NEA) reports. The figure is 7.7 per cent higher than in the fall of '62 and more than double that of the fall of '51. k
