Ci ity Fri., Nov. 25, 1966 B-l Earl Buie Earp Story Clarified (Editor's Note: Earl E. Buie, the conductor of this column, is recuperating at home from eye surgery. During his absence, a series of re-runs columns from his book, "The Best of Buie," will be used. Each bears the date it originally appeared.) MARCH 4, 1959 The storied Wyatt Earp didn't always wear his guns. There were even times when Earp, the bloody battle of the O.K. Corral Denina him, was given to whooping things up a bit just as do those mean-ies who romp across your television set into Dodge City or Tombstone for a rip-roaring night on the town. And at least on one occasion, the gunman with the fastest draw of the Old West drew second money, podner, in a little tussle on the streets of Needles. But before I puncture all of your illusions, I hasten to tell you that Earp was "clean," as they say in the westerns; he had surrendered his irons to a friend who had feared that Earp's revelry might lead to just what it did a little trouble. The only reason I write of the incident at all is that, with the rash of Wyatt Earp stories, here is one illustrative of the fact that when you get beyond the pages of the story books you frequently learn that heroes, like you and me, were subject to their human frailties; and sometimes they were overcome by them. The story: Along about 1912 Earp was living in Arizona. He was in the habit of taking trips around the country. Although Earp was, ordinarily, an affable fellow of quiet demeanor, a self-appointed guardian usually kept an eye on him and accompanied him on his tours. On this occasion as Earp boarded the train, his friend swung onto one of the rear cars, unbeknown to the famed lawman. As Earp left the train at Needles and hot-footed it to a saloon, the friend followed him. As the day wore on and the toasts got louder, the friend persuaded Earp to surrender his guns for safekeeping. Earp decided he should see the town. He straightened out the sidewalk to the (Continued on B 6, Column 6) NEW JUST ARRIVED! Waltz Shift Gowns. Peignoirs Matching Gowns, Robes, Slippers ELIZABETH'S Bankamerlcard 484 W.

Sage's Del Rosa Sage's Rialto Sage's Base Line Sage's Redlands Great Future Seen For Ontario Airport By KARL R. EDGERTON Sun-Talegram Military Editor (Second in a Series) Is Ontario International Airport destined to become a colossal freight center receiving daily shipments of fresh fruits and vegetables from around the world? Or will its future role be that of just another satellite airport dependent on the overflow from Los Angeles International? Woodruff De Silva, Ontario's amiable director of aviation, is one of those who paint a rosy picture of the years ahead. His optimism is based on the giants of the airways now on aeronautical drawing boards, plus the Ideal location of Ontario International. When the huge Boeing 747 and the commercial version of the C5A begin operating we will see a tremendous break-through in rate structures of cargo and long distance shipments," De Silva says. "And with our complex of freeways and the concentration of warehousing facilities for most of the chain stores east of the Los Angeles River, Ontario International Airport could become a great air freight center, receiving fresh fruits and vegetables from such far away places as Africa, Australia, South America and Mexico." De Silva predicts that with the aid of new cargo planes and Ontario International, the produce could be harvested in these countries and be on Southland supermarket shelves in less than 24 hours lapsed time. Most products in these countries now are grown to withstand much longer periods of time from the foreign fields to the American housewife's table. "By cutting down on shipping time the grower can build back into his products quality and flavor that were lost when the product was developed for truck or rail transit." The explosion De Silva foresees in the aviation industry will bring about many new airport and terminal problems, making obsolete some existing air terminals. "It is a blessing in disguise for Ontario International Airport in that we have not developed our new terminal or constructed new runways, but could produce a super airport and terminal complex to meet these new requirements," the airport director said. Federal Aviation Agency officials, too, look forward to a more prominent role for Ontario because of the "crisis in the sky" created by congestion that surrounds Los Angeles International. Although they don't all agree with De Silva's prediction, most say it is a possibility. One probability being discussed by FAA flight experts is to develop Ontario into a "satellite airport" absorbing the massive overflow of traffic from Los Angeles International. "One way we could clear up the crwoded conditions at L.A. is to divert all private planes to Ontario," explained one official. "That would leave Los Angeles free to handle the bigger transports of the future." It's doubtful that this suggestion will be greeted with enthusiasm by air travelers and businessmen living east of metropolitan Los Angeles. They reason that this would require At Open Air Force Meeting Thirty Fighter Pilots to Form Panel For Discussion of Viet Nam Air War Thirty Air Force fighter pilots recently returned from Viet Nam will conduct a panel discussion at an Air Force Association meeting to be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Norton AFB Non-Commissioned Officers Club. Moderator for the panel will be Col. James P. Hagerstrom, fighter ace of two wars. The combat-seasoned fliers will combine talks about their personal experiences to form a "Big Picture of the Air War in Viet Nam."

Colonel Craigwell flew 48 missions in Southeast Asia, both day and night, with many of them over North Viet Nam. Captain Bache flew 256 combat missions, 40 of them over North Viet Nam. Colonel Hess compiled 302 missions while flying a CH-34C helicopter and serving as helicopter advisor to Viet Nam Air Force. He has been responsible for the rescue of 86 persons (military and civilian) in the U.S. and overseas. KC-135 aircraft commander Captain Lee flew 30 combat refueling missions. longer driving time to the airport. Once in Los Angeles they would still be faced with the prospect of bucking the heavy flow of freeway traffic to L.A. International. If the two cities consolidate their air facilities, Ontario may be handling nearly 5 million passengers by 1975, according to De Silva. Commissions from both Los Angeles and Ontario are still attempting to lay the groundwork for such a consolidation. If they are successful, the con On Aug. 14 of this year he saved a battle-damaged F-105 and its pilot during adverse weather conditions when the fighter was critically low on fuel.

It is certain that when the gigantic "birds" of the future take to the airways in the 1970s, they will be looking for the best possible "nests" to handle their millions of passengers and tons of cargo. That places Ontario International Airport in an enviable position for growth and expansion. Hear Ye!

(J roup The processes of a medical examination sometimes seem a bit mysterious from the patient's point of view. The San Bernardino County Heart Association says that a physician's examination of the heart in the usual case involves only easily understood measurements which the patient himself can learn about from the November Heart pamphlet of the month, "How The Doctor Examines Your Heart." One of six recommendations of the local Heart group to reduce the risk of heart attack is "Have regular medical checkups." If you are hesitating to follow this advice, from feeling "strange" about having your heart tested, read this pamphlet first. You can obtain your copy by writing to the County Heart Association at 760 North D St., San Bernardino.
