Page 12 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA JANUARY 31, 1964 Why should fair housing people fear the voters? The initiative measure to nullify the California Fair Housing Act of 1963 will win enough voter-signatures to qualify for the June or November ballot. That is now conceded by Negro Assemblyman Byron Rumford of Berkeley, author of the act. But, he predicts, the nullification measure will be defeated at the polls. Whether Mr. Rumford is a gifted prophet remains to be seen. Our hunch is that the election outcome will depend upon the degree to which white voters — rightly or wrongly — fear that their property values would be depreciated if a Negro bought the house next door. In any case, the initiative measure sponsored by the California Real Estate Association, has aroused great anger among those who believe the Rumford Act should stand without challenge. Their alarm is understandable since the passage of the initiative would reverse the Rumford Act The 1963 law says that a seller of a home is forbidden to discriminate against a prospective buyer for reasons of race. The nullifier specifically gives him the right to discriminate — to accept or reject the offer from any buyer, as he sees fit However, when the Rumford proponents become so angry w i t h the California Real Estate Association proposal, they betray a fear which can hardly be defended. Basically they seem to be afraid that the initiative will carry. That is to say, they arc apprehensive that when the Assemblymen and Senators adopted the Fair Housing Act, they were not correctly registering the views of the majority of their constituents. If the Rumford Act is defeated by nullifica- (ion, then the Act was prematurely adopted. In California the people have reserved unto themselves the right to have the last word on legislation and that has been our system of government for over half a century. However, the initiative measure presents a golden opportunity for proponents of the Fair Housing Act, if they will keep cool long enough to take an objective look. And this is it: They have a chance to demonstrate that the anti-discrimination law in the rental and sale of housing is based on a mandate from the electorate of California. Previously the major gains of the civil rights people have come from other sectors of government: The executive department has used its administrative powers to spread equal-opportunity rules within government. It has used its legal department to back up the courts. The Supreme Court has been the real pace setter, beginning with the school anti-segregation case. The lawmakers in Washington and Sacramento have adopted measures one of which is the disputed Rumford Act. But the most solid ground on which the civil rights case can possibly rest is an expression from the voters themselves. A defeat of the nullification initiative would constitute voter-sanction for the California Fair Housing law. This would further the implementation of the act by at least five years in one year. The stakes are high and the opportunity great for California Fair Housing advocates in 1964. Disease of the week Of all the warnings about what might happen from excessive watching television — ruined eyesight, atrophied muscles, curvature of the spine — no one foresaw that an entirely new disease might be generated. It's been diagnosed as "TV medicitis" by Dr. A. M. Aibinder of New York City. According to the doctor, some viewers become so caught up in medical dramas that they identify with the actors and think they have caught the disease being portrayed. "Convinced they have the disease, they visit their doctor and even request the treatment they saw administered on television," he says. This might be an idea for the rating services. Along with asking viewers what they are watching at the moment, they could inquire about what diseases they are suffering from. This would reveal not only current program standings, but any carryover from previous weeks' shows. The Newsreel The hole-in-one becomes more common and so does the 4-minute mile. Improved equipment, we guess — the downhill race track and the funnel-shaped green. New York is going to have twin buildings of 110 stories high. This is a great addition to our national defense — think what a wonderful sling shot they would make. Foreign tourists in America are going to get awfully confused on our geography when they buy a Texas hat marked "Souvenir of Washington, D.C." A book on how to stop smoking costs §2.00. The man at the next desk is tempted but points out that if it didn't work he would have wasted the price of a half-dozen packs of cigarettes. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore When Chamber of Commerce types are in full bay on the subject of bringing industry to our bailiwick, they always say that the kind of industry they hanker for is without smokestacks. "Like Aerospace and Space Technology," they will add, by way of illustration. Well, fellows. We have news for you. These brain factories have smokestacks, too, although of a smogless variety. The trouble is that when you have a whole lot of smart guys sitting around pushing their slide rules and scribbling t h c figures on paper, they dirty up a lot of papyrus in the course of a day. Also, they can grind out quite a few reports in triplicate. If the maintenance staff didn't get rid of all of this paper each day Aerospace would soon be buried under its own paper — sort of a snowdrift banked over the building, shutting off the light and air. In an ordinary business you would just have the rubbish collector come around and throw it onto his truck with a pitchfork and haul it out to the Santa Ana wash. But it seems that the Wash is probably full of spies, looking for space secrets, so we've got to keep all of this scientific brainwork out of their hands. The remedy? Burn the stuff, of course. For such high powered rubbish, an ordinary incinerator would never, never do. Oh. dear no. They have to have a big gas flame to get the contraption heated up iikc a Kaiser blast furnace. Then when they start feeding the thing a lot of secrets, it gets rather gaseous so they have a secondary combustion chamber to take care of that. . . also of the fine bits that didn't get burned the first time. By this time they arc ready to inject spray into the remaining gas, cooling and cleaning it. Next day the scientists have to start all over and work like beavers, from dawn to dusk, to think up another ton of secrets to feed the fiery monster. The San Bernardino County Supervisors also have difficult days. too. . . like last Monday. When Chairman Nancy Smith smacked the gavel on the table, there was a sort of hollow ring in the chamber. Supervisor Dan Mike-sell of Ontario wasn't there. He was in bed in the hospital in Upland, having broken his leg skiing at Mt. Ealdy. Supervisor Paul J. Young of Ontario wasn't there. He was down in Los Angeles before a special V. S. Senate Subcommittee on Air and Water Pollution. (He forgot to discuss the problem of incinerated space secrets.) So, Chairman Nancy looked squarely at Supervisor D a n's vacant chair and declared: "I would think that would be an excellent argument against opening the San Gorgonio Wilderness area to skiing." Shortly she recessed the meeting so Supervisors Ross Dana of Apple Valley and Wesley Break of Bryn Mawr could speed out to Victorville for a Chamber luncheon. The Victorville Chamber of Commerce had called on the desert representative to explain the boards' opposition to a ski lift on San Gorgonio. They called because Gene E. Hallstrand of San Gorgonio Ski Lifts incorporated had been around and given them his pitch. Since San Gorgonio is in Mr. Break's backyard, and he has been the strongest opponent of the ski deal, Mr. Dana invited him to talk at Victorville, which he did. Then they hurried back to the courthouse. Supervisor Young arrived and reported: "Boy, there's a lot about air pollution those people Rockefeller makes hay in California By Doris Flecson THINK IT'S SAFE TO HAN<S UP ANOTHER ROSY flCTURfc?'

WASHINGTON (UPI)—Many women have in their wardrobes one or more outfits that are short on the bottom, low in the front and tight all the way around. They are called "cocktail dresses." They are called that because women look as if they had been poured into the dresses, and if they aren't careful something will spill out. I mention this to set the stage for a momentous announcement I have received from an out of town depart ment store. It plans to introduce sometime this year a line of cocktail suits for men. The collection will be shown first in Washington, which is reputed to have more cocktail parties than any other city. Permit me to quote from the press release that brought me these tidings: "Diplomats representing foreign nations almost always show up at Washington cocktail parties wearing high style suits adorned with sashes, medals, gold braid and other ornaments, but we Americans seem to consistently appear at such affairs in the same dark blue or charcoal grey suits we wear for business. "Special clothes are needed for men to wear at the dozens of informal activities after 5 o'clock, when a business suit, sportswear or formal attire is not right." It goes on to say that cocktail suits "may very well launch an 'age of grandeur' for men." Maybe so, but whoever wrol* that press release obviously was not very well acquainted with social life in the capital. The author apparently assumed that cocktails are only served after 5 p.m. Actually, the cocktail hour here begins at about 11 a.m. and runs until approximately 11 p.m. It is going to be pretty difficult to design a drinking uniform to fit that. The press release also reports that the store "has canvassed the leading men's fashion designers of the United States and Europe" to obtain ideas for the cocktail suit collection. I think that is the wrong approach. Better results would be obtained by canvassing the leading drinkers. I have done a bit of impromptu canvassing among some of the leading soaks in Washington and it is their consensus that the ideal cocktail costume would: —Be made of a sponge-like material to absorb the leakage from soggy hors d'oeuvres. —Be reinforced at the elbow to counter the wear and tear of frequent bending. Unless the suit includes these features, the age of grandeur will never get off the ground. LOS ANGELES — In 48 hours in California, Gov. Rockefeller has made a good start toward joining this state's 86-vote convention delegation with his own New York as his power base at the Republican Presidential Convention. He has produced a campaign committee with the state's senior Senator, Thomas Kuchel, as manager which the political trade including Democrats agree is a strong one. He has broken into the old operational strength of Richard Nixon both with that committee and the experienced professional staff it has recruited. In addition, appearing with him are elected state politicians w h o went to the wailing wall with Nixon in 1960 and 1962. This has given the New York Governor so much confidence that he all but taunted the rival who easily elbowed h i m aside four years ago as being an expatriate Californian. Nixon has departed Los Angeles for a New York law firm and a residence in the same Fifth Avenue apartment house occupied by the Governor. Nixon has announced he would be available for a Presidential draft this year. Asked if he thought this might bring Nixon into the June 2 primary here. Rockefeller replied it would be hard to manage "because he was here and he left." Nor did Rockefeller think the people now with him would prove to be "fair weather friends." Rather grimly he added that the New Yorker has friends in that state but no delegates "and delegates are very important." All this is very different from the Rockefeller effort to get his party's nod last time. The spadework done then was sloppy when non-existent. Republicans, fat cats and officeholders alike, had their eyes fixed on the then Vice President, so complacent over his prospects that many of them were rude even to a Rockefeller. The Governor seemed then to lack faith in the political appeal which so suddenly had landed him in Albany. He was slow to press and reluctant to challenge, lie appeared to be shopping around for support in a trade which wants candidates who are hellbent to win no matter what the odds. These are early days in this big and volatile state. It does seem unlikely that California can be translated into an indecisive New Hampshire s t y 1 • primary. In New Hampshire there are less than a hundred thousand voter hands to shake. Here the candidate must travel widely at great expense of money and energy. Only two, it appears, can manage that: The Governor and Senator Goldwatcr who arrives here, next week. A Iushly financed, vocal right wing has given the Senator momentum. Its director, former Senator Knowland, is respected and well known. But California's politics are a coalition affair in both parties and few one-track candidates do well statewide. Knowland himself, then Republican Senate leader, lost to Edmund (Pat) Brown by a million votes in the 1958 governorship race. In 1962, Joseph Shell, a right wing candidate for governor, got only 300,000 votes running against Nixon in the Republican primary. Rockefeller strategists figure the state's broadly based politics are tailor-made for him, its June 2 primary on the eve of the national convention an extra dividend. Hence the all out effort.

What is that? A—This is a special type of headache that usually occurs at night and wakens the victim. It is usually located in the region of one eye and is very severe, but usually subsides in less than an hour. As it subsides, there may be weeping from the affected eye and profuse sweating. The attacks may occur every night for several weeks, then disappear for an indefinite period and return later. Cafergot (also prescribed for migraine headaches) or the inhalation of pure oxygen will give relief. Because the victim apparently has so much histamine in his system, desensitization to histamine has been tried with good results, but this is not an easy procedure. A drug called betahistine hydrochloride has been developed and shows great promise, but it's not yet commercially available. Q —I have a back ailment known as fibrositis. Could a fall 10 years ago have caused this ailment? My doctor has me taking a steroid drug, prednisone, that gives me a lot of relief.

CERTIFICATE OF CESSATION 1 Or DOING BUSINESS UN'DEB FICTITIOUS NAME The undersigned does hereby certify that she ceased to do business under the fictitious firm name of "HDJERMAN JEWELER" at 109 Orange Street, Redlands. California. My name in fuU and place of residence is as follows: ROSE S. HINERMAN, 303 Summit Avenue, Redlands. California. I certify, under penalty of perjury, that the foregoing is true and correct Sated: January 23, 1964. ROSE S. HINERMAN. State of California. ) County of San Bernardino > ss. On this 23rd day of January. 1964. before me, ESTHER A. MILLER, a Notary Public in and for said County and State, personally appeared ROSE S. HINERMAN. known to me to be the person whose name is subscribed to the within instrument, and acknowledged to me that she executed the same. IN WITNESS WHEREOF. I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my Official Seal the day and year in this Certificate first above written. ESTHER A. MILLER. Notary Public in and for the State of California, with principal office in the County of San Bernardino. «SEAL> Filed with County Clerk Jan. 29. 1964 in a confusion of tongues. The confusion has persisted down to our own times. "Fibrositis" is a term that was originally used to label rheumatic pains that were not due to an actual involvement of the joints (arthritis). It is a convenient term and has a pleasant ring to it, but most doctors today prefer to pinpoint the cause of the pain as an involvement of the muscles (myositis), tendons (ten dinitis), or bursal sac (bursitis). The steroid hormones, such as cortisone and prednisone, will usually give relief. Having received relief, you should reduce the dose of this drug as quickly as possible to prevent the undesirable effects of prolonged treatment. Exposure to cold, damp air or a sprain that occurred just before the onset is the most likely cause, and not the fall you incurred 10 years ago. Q —I am 38. My doctor put me in the hospital for peri carditis. Another doctor says I had myocarditis. What is the difference? A—Pericarditis is an inflammation of the pericardium — the membranous sac that surrounds the heart. It may be due to one of several infectious diseases, or it may follow a coronary heart attack, rheumatic heart disease or a variety of other causes. Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle itself. This, too. may be due to these causes. It is not unusual for a person to have both conditions. THE ALMANAC Today is Friday, Jan. 31, the 31st day of 1964 with 335 to follow. The moon is approaching its last quarter. The evening stars are Venus and Jupiter. Those born today include Austrian composer Franz Schubert, in 1797. On this day in history: In 1865, Robert E. Lee was appointed commander-in-chie : of all Confederate armies b- Jefferson Davis, president o the Confederacy. In 1950, President Trum .T announced he had ordered the development of the hydrogen bomb by the Atomic Energy Commission. In 1953, Holland experienced one of its worst floods in history as more than 2,000 people lost their lives when dikes crumpled, flooding 330,000 acres of land. In 1958, the first U.S. satellite, Explorer I, was launched • into orbit.
