Page 14 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA FEBRUARY 3, 1964 Being a housewife isn't 'living end' Even if her dainty bonnet gets trampled all over, Margaret Chase Smith's entry into the race for the Republican presidential nomination should do wonders for the morale of an important segment of the population. Sociologists are both worried and encouraged by the increasing number of women whose lives are "finished" by their 40s or 50s. Their children are grown and gone from home; the goals they and their husbands set at the beginning of marriage have either been reached or modified to fit what they have actually achieved. These women are physically healthy and intellectually in their primes, yet they feel superfluous and useless. This is not to disparage the career of housewife, which is the most important job in the world when a family is young. But it is a job that comes to an end, despite the old saw about women's work. Some women at this stage just languish. Others go in for social make-work and rounds of card parties. Others take meaningless jobs just for something to do. Still others deteriorate, develop neuroses, begin to drive their husbands away. But more and more women are recognizing the period as a challenge, a second chance at life. They are going back to college and the career that was interrupted by marriage. Or they are going to college for the first time, or taking specialized training and embarking on careers they never dreamed of. Not everyone, of course, can venture into politics. Mrs. Smith got a head start by being married to a congressman. She had no children, but she was nearly 42 when she was elected to fill her late husband's unexpired term in 1940. Any children would have been pretty well grown. No, Margaret Chase Smith is not a special case, just a well-known one. But because of her, the world of politics, if only on the local level (which is perhaps the most important level of all), may come to realize the truth of the statement: Never underestimate the power of a woman. More important, many women may come to realize that the statement applies to themselves. Priced out of work The announced purpose of President Johnson's proposal to require selected businesses to pay double for overtime is noble — to spread employment. In theory, an employer would hire another man, at straight time, instead of paying an existing employee twice as much. Maybe. It would depend on a lot of things . . . how long the employer expected more- than normal work to last . . . the availability of an additional man as competent as the one already employed . . . the ability of a new man do a particular job (people aren't interchangeable like standard nuts and bolts). If spreading the employment proved impractical, then the result would merely be to increase the wage the cost of the operation. Strangely, the President seems willing to take the risk. It is strange because the greatest stimulus for management to replace a man with a machine is the high cost of the man. In America a lot of people have priced themselves out of the market by demanding more for their sendees than their economic contribution. Just take a look at a construction job. So-called "common labor" gets such uncommonly high wages in America that wherever possible, machines have been invented to do the work. Double-time for overtime — where overtime was actually paid — would accentuate the trend toward mechanization and automation and worsen the employment situation. "Now let's get one thing straight, Mao, I'M RUNNING THE WORLD—not you.'" With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore You may be awakened some morning in the next couple of years by a deep, distant boom. Do you remember when the Atomic Energy Commission was setting off explosions at the Nevada proving ground and the sound would be heard here as a dull thud? Well, it would be just like that — even the direction would be the same. This noise, however, will come from the Bristol Mountains on the Mojave desert. 85 airline miles northeast of Redlands. That is the range through which the Santa Fe would like to put its railroad, straightening the Barstow-Ncedles route and shortening the distance by some 35 miles. At the same time, U. S. 66 could also be re-aligned. While the nuclear scientists undoubtedly know what they are doing, the highway engineers certainly don't. They will rue the day that they ever consent to blasting away mountains to put roads where they never could be put before. A mountain is an engineer's best friend and is at times his only defense against clamorous citizens who insist that a new highway be built in their bailiwick. Local history is filled with such campaigns. In 29-10-11. Redlands businessmen developed a deep yearning for a highway that would run approximately south from here. The geographical obstacle was of the same kind that the Santa Fe and the highway engineers face in the Bristol Mountains — a low range that would require a deep and long excavation. Beyond the San Timoteo hills, on our southern sky line, were the two giant military payrolls. One was at March Field, established in 1917. and booming again as World War II approached. The other was just west of March, Camp Ifaan, the army installation for the National Guard outfits that had been federalized. The Redlandcrs went to t h c highway authorities pointing out that "the National Defense" required the construction of this road through the San Timoteo hills. That sounds silly today, but human nature is such that you can always rationalize on other grounds something you want, if you want it badly enough. Unfortunately, the commanders at March and Haan did not rally around the Redlands flag. The highway authorities had only to say. ••but those hills are pretty high". If a handy-dandy bomb had been available to them they would have found saying "no" more awkward. When people get hungry, their visionary dreams know no limits. It was also during the Depression — along about J937 — that the boosters in Mill Creek canyon used to argue that a mainline highway should be constructed up that gorge from the valley and down the far side to the desert. They said that this would be a shorter route to 29-Palms, and to Needles beyond, than U.S. 99 by way of Beaumont and Banning. And they said it with a straight face because they were in dead earnest. The proposition was simply appalling. Lower Mill Creek is a narrow- gorge. If a road is built in the bottom, a flood will destroy it sooner or later. (The 1938 flood wrecked the road of that day.) Putting a road up on the side of Morton Peak would be costly. At the head. Mill Creek narrows into a *V" and in midwinter snow often avalanches down from Galena Peak. The canyon ends in a s t e e p bowl. Beyond, to the desert, mile after mile of rough country extends across the Whitewater drainage. So long as they had no handy-dandy bomb in their construction kit, engineers could handle the eager mountain men by listening to them sympathetically — and promising nothing. Suppose our engineers did have the power to explode mountains at will. Imagine the clamor for new routes. Those hordes of San Ber- nardinians, with money burning holes in their pockets, would demand a bee-line road through the mountains to speed their journeys to Las Vegas. On a hot summer day, t h e thoughts of Riversiders would turn to a bee-line road to Laguna — right through the Santa Ana mountains. And if they would just blast Mt. San Jacinto out of the way, everyone in Redlands could drive to Palm Springs in 40 mm- utes instead of 50. The only way the engineers can save themselves from these potential demands is to put away that nuclear bomb and forget ail about the Bristol Mountains.

CHARLES R. STULTZ. Clerk of said Governing Board. have been witnessing some in teresting demonstrations this year of the various techniques of throwing hats in the ring. Throwing a hat into the ring is not as simple as many peo pie think. A lot depends on how the political winds are blowing. Occasionally, a candidate will make the mistake of throwing his hat against the wind. When that happens, the hat comes right back to him. This is knowu as the boomerang effect. Or a candidate might misjudge the wind velocity and throw his hat during a dead calm. In which case it drops at his feet and stays there for the rest of the campaign. This is known as the doldrums effect. Or his hat might get caught in a cross current which causes it to roll out of the ring and into the street, where it is run over by a truck. This is known as the March wind effect. Some candidates throw their hats with their left hands, and some with their right. And some are ambidextrous. Butj presidential contest a stylist known in basketball as the two- handed push shot. Rep. James Roosevelt, D- Calif., gave an unusual display of hat throwing the other day when he announced his present intentions as regards running for the Senate. He threw his hat over the ring in a vertical trajectory that will keep it aloft for several weeks. Should he decide in the meantime that his hat is heading for a crash landing, he will be able to catch it before it hits the ground. Another novel variation was provided by astronaut John Glenn, who, in entering the Democratic senatorial race in Ohio, became the first candidate to throw a space helmet in the ring. There are indications that Bud Wilkinson, former University of Oklahoma coach, might become a Republican senatorial candidate in that state by throwing in a football helmet. Sen. Margaret Chase Smith, R-Maine, has given the GOP No easy way out in South Viet Nam By WILLIAM S. WHITE WASHINGTON — Washington's best early estimate is that the new siezure of power in South Viet Nam by the strongly pro-American General Nguyen Khanh could very well promote the joint Vietnamese- American military resistance to Communist invaders. It is at any rate most unlikely to hamper that campaign. And it may well have been motivated, precisely as Khanh has asserted, by valid fears that some in the old and now ousted regime were indeed susceptible to the idea of a "Neutralization" of South Viet Nam which would amount to a Communist victory. It is a fact, known to American officials with much direct knowledge of the personalities in Vict Nam, that some of the generals thrown out by Khanh were at least under the influence of unofficial French sources who are promoting "neutralism." It is also a fact, according to highly reliable intelligence estimates here, that Khanh was never one of those violently opposed to the old regime of Ngo Dinh Diem, which was bloodily overthrown by the junta which now in turn is kicked out of Khanh. The most hopeful single factor in the business is that some of our most knowledgeable people have a high regard for Khanh's military qualities and his true determination to prosecute the war against the Communist invaders, to which some 15,000 of our own troops are also committed, though not in direct action. They think he is probably the most qualified military officer today in South Viet Nam. The fact that Khanh's coup came on the very heels of French recognition of Communist China — against the most earnest entreaties of the United States — will cause some suspicion in the world that the United States knew what he was about to do and perhaps even encouraged him. High authorities here not only deny this: they deny it most convincingly. Washington had no knowledge of what was afoot, nor did Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge of Siagon. Of this, this columnist for one is totally convinced. There is no official disposition here to come down hard on the French. Nor is there any charge, even in private, that any French officials were plotting neutralism in any way with the now deposed generals. There is, however, a conviction that Khanh was genuinely in fear of some such plot at unofficial French levels and that in moving against it he moved for higher reasons than merely his own elevation in South Viet Nam! Still, it remains a fact that two overturns of regime in South Viet Nam within a few months do not, by the most conservative estimate, say very much for the stability of the country we are trying at such cost to rid of Communist aggression. Nobody here, moreover, can guarantee that the regime now in power will not have its own internal difficulties. All this is to say that we were and are in a box in Viet Nam and that there is no easy way out. To concede all this, however, is not for a moment to concede that the United States should — or will — now regard the whole thing as impossible and simply scuttle and run. Some such advice has been coming of late from people who deny that we have any rightful interest in South Viet Nam, and so on. This is. however, the advice of weakness — and, indeed, of appeasement, however un- doubedly honorable are its motives. No amount of internal turmoil in South Vict Nam and no amount of difficulty can hide the basic fact: If South Viet Nam goes down to Communism all Southeast Asia may be next. We stand and fight there, or we give away the game. (Copyright, 1964, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) THE WELL CHILD Handle temper tantrums with love and patience By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt Temper gets the best of most of us at times. And the preschool child who has not learned how to handle the ordinary frustrations of life will normally have an occasional tantrum. He isn't up to doing battle with his parents, so he reacts in the only way he knows how: blind fury directed at himself or the floor. The tantrum may take t h e form of screaming, stamping, kicking, breath-holding or head-banging and it may be the result of jealousy of his parents' attention or not being granted what he wants when he wants it. An occasional tantrum is a normal part of your child's discovery of his own individuality. Parents often attach undue im- THE ALMANAC Today is Monday, Feb. 3, the 34th day of 1964 with 332 to follow. The moon is approaching its last quarter. The evening stars are Venus and Jupiter. Those born today include American journalist Horace Greeley, in 1811. On this day in history: In 1913, the income tax, or 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, became law with ratification by the state of Wyoming. In 1917, the United States broke diplomatic relations with Germany following that country's announcement of unrestricted submarine warfare. In 1924, Woodrow Wilson, former U.S. President, died at his home in Washington. In 1930, President Hoover appointed Charles Evans Hughes chief justice of the Supreme Court. A thought for the day—Former President Woodrow Wilson said: "The world must be made safe for democracy." touch by throwing in a hat with matching purse and gloves. And Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., adopting the technique employed by President Johnson four years ago, has shown his versatility by throwing one hat in the presidential ring and another in the senatorial ring. Some candidates, of course, do not throw their hats at all. They wear them loosely on their heads in hopes that they will be wafted into the ring by a draft portance to these outbursts and are especially resentful if they occur in a public place. One mother writes that her 3-year- old daughter has tantrums and that kindness, spanking, and withholding privileges have all failed to stop the tantrums. This mother should determine, if possible, what it is that usually triggers such outbursts and then tactfully try to avoid provoking them, but not to the point of submitting to the child's whims. A show of true affection for the child at all times should go far to relieve the situation. It is especially important n o t to show anger when dealing with a tantrum as this reinforces the child's anger and sets up a vicious cycle. Give the child a chance to cool off and to save face. If the tantrum takes place in public, get the child to a quiet spot if possible. Let her know you love her but not the way she is behaving. Don't reward her by capitulating, but keep punishment to a minimum. Above all, adopt a consistent policy so that the child's frustrations won't be the result of not knowing what to expect of you. Q—Our 3-year-old daughter had Guillain-Barre syndrome. What causes this disease and what are the aftereffects? A—Your daughter had what is better known as infectious polyneuritis, a disease that is characterized by a slowly progressing paralysis of both legs. It is caused by an unidentified germ or virus. The disease is self-limited and most victims, especially children, gradually make a full recovery. Treatment is directed at relieving symptoms as there is no drug that will cure the disease or shorten its course.
