Pag« 16 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA FEBRUARY 5, 1964 Real Gold—for 11 years small and successful One of the most difficult things for a small business to do in America is to stay small, independent and successful. Redlands has had its share of demonstrations since World War II. The Universal Sanitary Pottery company came here as the manufacturer of bathroom equipment, establishing a factory in Mentone. But before long it joined Rundle, a company that manufactured related products, and broadened its line and increased in size. Grand Central Rocket came here from Pacoima as a venture owned by Charles Bartley and his associates. Then it went through an intermediate stage, involving Tennessee Gas, and Food Machinery, and wound up as a Lockheed subsidiary. When Pure Gold (then called "Mutual Orange Distributors") got out of the citrus products business 11 years ago, the men in the products sales department took over the "Real Gold" label and set up a business for themselves. This they have conducted from the office at Brookside and Center under the leadership of John Doyle. Gradually stock in Real Gold has gravitated to Minute Maid, a subsidiary of Coca Cola, and now that corporation is acquiring full ownership. This follows the consistent tendency that is observed throughout the American business structure. Nonetheless, this differs from the cases of Universal-Rundle and Lockheed in that the Real Gold operation will wind up in Redlands and transfer to Florida. This means the loss to the community of an organization that has been of economic value and which has permitted many fine people to live here. Real Gold has been a tribute to the enterprise and ability of the men who organized the company and made a go of it. Undoubtedly most of them will choose to remain in Redlands, If so, it is to lie hoped they will find an equally satisfactory outlet for their talents. Shades of the depression How strangely we are slipping back into some of the devices of the Depression in an era of prosperity. At Oak Glen the state is operating a 1964 version of the Civilian Conservation Camps which were scattered over our mountains in the Thirties. In the Depression the primary purpose was to provide wholesome outdoor work, at nominal pay, for boys who would otherwise have been unemployed. Now the primary aim is to make employable men out of fellows who lack the necessary education or skills to compete in the labor market. In San Bernardino County we arc going back to the system of employing in public work men who require public assistance to support their families. In the Depression this became institutionalized in the WPA, a federal agency whose business it was to provide work for men who could not get jobs in private employment. Now the new system is being applied only to parents in families where public money is paid to them through what has been known as the Aid to Needy Children program. Like the Oak Glen experiment, this one is provided for by the State Legislature for the purpose of putting people into useful employment and to giving them vocational training. As everyone who was an adult during the Depression knows, this is going to be difficult for a hundred human reasons. Trouble will be the constant companion of those who must run the program. Criticism will be the order of the day. So, let's face it. The program will have to proceed on a trial and error basis. Patience and understanding should be the aims of the citizenry at large. Nearly everyone will agree that the objectives are good, but only a few will realize in advance how rocky is the path ahead. Once again a real lake (Riverside Press) Save for two years when it was partially filled, Lake Elsinore has been dry since 1951, the victim of sustained drought. And Elsinore and adjacent communities, to say nothing of people from all over Southern California who depended on its recreational benefits, have suffered. Now all this is changing. Colorado River water, provided by the Metropolitan Water District and purchased by the State, has begun to fill the dry lake. The filling process will require some 50 days in • all, but it must be said that there have been times over the years when even the most optimistic surely doubted that they would see this happen. But it is happening. Before too long Lake Elsinore will again be filled, a full lake renewing economic and recreational advantages to the area. It is a welcome development all around. The Newsreel Valued Contrib suggests that we might have vice senators and lieutenant representatives to take over the duties of these important offices when the incumbents are incapacitated by campaigning. Critics who say that football coaches and astronauts don't have what it takes to be a U.S. Senator don't go on and tell us what it takes to be a success. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore Vou say you arc too old to ski? Listen. At Snow Valley the other day a young Redlandcr worked his way along with the waiting line until it was his turn to board the double-chair lift. Another '•single" joined him and they paired up for the ride up the tramway. "How do you like your shorties?" the younger fellow asked, looking at the stubby skis worn by ihc older man. "Fine," the senior skier said. "They turn easy. I can go wherever I want on the hill, but I'm no spcedball, you understand." "Did you take up skiing recently?" the Redlandcr continued, wondering why an oldtimer would be using the newly fashionable short skis. "Rather. I started three years ago," he said. All at once the Redlandcr sensed he was talking to a man who was much older than he had previously assumed. "Say, how old are you?" he exclaimed. "Seventy eight," the novice skier said. They had reached the top and the Redlandcr, gliding away, hollered, "take it easy". On the evening of January 25, 12 hours after Echo 2 was launched, we watched it glide over Redlands, a small tagalong star about 25 miles behind it. Since that first observation we have seen the balloon about eight times but the jettisoned hardware hasn't been visible. We suppose it has dropped out of orbit. But it's awfully hard to be sure. The sky is full of mysterious objects. Twice we have held a pair of binoculars on the spot in the sky for about a minute after Echo went by. Twice we have seen tiny objects moving in the same direction as the satellite and at about the same angular elevation — but only for a few moments. Each time wc wonder what made the streak — a very high jet aircraft, another satellite, or some of Echo's hardware. Since there arc over 500 objects orbiting the earth you can't be sure of what you do sec. Echo 2 has frequently passed through the gate between the two brilliant evening stars in the West. Venus is the brighter, and lower; Jupiter is the higher. The gate, however, is narrowing rapidly as Venus, night by night, mounts in the sky. By February 27 they will be so close together that a satellite would have to be launched on an extremely accurate course to find its way between them. The proximity of these brilliant objects will suggest to you what the shepherds on the hill in Bethlehem may have seen nearly two thousand years ago. In 6 B.C. three planets formed a small triangle that may have been the so-called Christmas star. It's going to be lonely on North Center street in the mornings. Recently wc have become accustomed to neighborhood company — early and lots of it. The citizens, you see, have been foregathering outside the Department of Motor Vehicles office. They begin to arrive about 7:20, philosophically taking up a standing position before the office door which doesn't open until 8. By then the line forms a long L. Now the deadline has gone by and at the DMV it will only be business as usual. And that's good because Ernie Wintergerst, the manager, lost his voice in the license-renewal ordeal and can only croak.

WASHINGTON (UPI) — During the past 24 hours, great progress has been made in the so-called "West - McIIale Pro ject." Thanks largely to my efforts as chief coordinator of re search, the project has achieved its goal of finding a uniform system for measuring the intensity of hangovers. Before accepting any laurels, however, I want to give due credit to my distinguished associate, Terry McHale of the Flint, Mich., Journal. It was his brilliant theoretical analysis that made the breakthrough possible. With the aid of only a pencil and paper, and a couple of aspirin tablets, McHale was able to deduce that hangovers emit shock waves, somewhat in the manner of earthquakes. My role in the project was to test his theory under laboratory conditions, which was really quite simple. I merely found an ostrich that had a hangover frightened it. When the ostrich hid its head in the sand, I took a seismo­ graph and recorded the vibrations. The reading showed a distinct tremor. Although this verified Mc- Halc's deduction, the method is impractical for every day use. As a practical system for determining hangover intensity, I recommend the Mercalli Scale. Ordinarily used to rate the intensity of earthquakes, the Mercalli Scale divides ground tremors into 12 degrees of relative severity, excerpts of which are reproduced below: 1. Not felt except under exceptional conditions. 2. Felt only by a few persons, especially on upper floors of buildings. 3. Felt quite noticeably indoors. Vibrations like passing truck. 4. Felt indoors by many. Sensation like heavy truck striking building. 5. Felt by nearly everyone. Some dishes, windows broken. 6. Felt by all. A few instances of fallen plaster or damaged chimneys. 7. Noticed by persons driving motor cars. Some chimneys WASHINGTON — The position of Richard Nixon in California political calculations is a curious one. Republicans there believe that today he is stronger outside his native state than in it. They acknowledge that all over the country he has pockets of strength created in three Presidential campaigns, his own losing bid and two victories on the Eisenhower ticket. They will even accept that he may be their best known potential candidate. But they just don't want to campaign again in California with him. The major clement in this reluctance is that they have ceased to feel that he is a winner. When he came up so fast and went so far. they had attributed to him a lucky star and, in the universal manner of politics, supressed doubts, dislikes and some natural jealousy. The spirit of fatalism vanished with Nixon's defeat for Governor in 1962 at the hands of the Democratic incumbent, Gov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown. Some California Republican leaders had questioned the Nixon judgement in making the race and blamed it on his Eastern advisers. Even these doubters did not regard Brown as too formidable and his cosy 300,000 plurality jolted them. They Quit When the defeat was followed in the cold, grey dawn by a famously graceless Nixon press conference, many quietly threw up their hands. His departure for the long, green pastures of Wall Street, New York, came almost as a relief. Californians concede that possibly elsewhere the impact of that press conference has faded. They can see that it could be forgiven as an understandable piece of bitterness caused by campaign fatigue and a second and more humiliating defeat. In the state, however, it is still spoken of with a kind of awe. Some say that shock waves arc still reverberating. Democrats, of course, arc prepared to help the effect along. A tape of the conference il a treasured party possession which has already been prepared for campaign purposes if required. Insurance for Future Democrats also are pushing through the courts a suit against the Nixon campaign organization charging that it financed defamatory charges circulated against Brown by a wright-wing group. Most such suits are dropped after a campaign, especially by the winner. It was decided that this one could be proved and might be valuable insurance for the future. A rising young Assemblyman of the type on which the party needs to rebuild and an experienced State Senator were frank in their comments about the possibility of another Nixon campaign. In pungent vernacular, the Assemblyman pronounced Nixon politically dead not so much because of his critics or the enemies he had made but because of the poor quality of his campaign. It was all wrong, in his view, including Nixon's personal performance, and he deeply opposes a repeat. Poor Political Health In more polished terms, the State Senator agreed that Nixon's political health in California was poor. His idea is that Nixon can't help the state party at this point, and it hopes it won't have to help him. Neither man denies that their former leader might be able to mobilize grass-roots strength at the convention should other aspirants make unimpressive primary showings. They are now with Gov. Nelson Rockefeller and say the party can only benefit from widespread airing of his doctrines of moderation. They express optimism somewhat short of conviction that the New York Governor will make a grand entrance from the state primary June 2 into the convention July 13. This is the Rockefeller hope and, in a sense, his last chance. (Copyright. 1964. by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) THE DOCTOR SAYS 500 million colds annually; quick cure still a mystery By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt Much that .is new is being learned about the common cold, and much that is old is still true. In the United States about 500 million colds occur every year. City dwellers have a greater exposure to colds and hence have more colds per year. The spread of colds is almost impossible io prevent because the causative viruses get into the air in battalions every time an infected person sneezes, coughs, laughs or even speaks above a faint whisper. Fortunately they don't live more than a few minutes when exposed to sunlight or drying in the atmosphere, but a goodly number are inhaled and find a happy home in the respiratory tract of some innocent bystander. It is hoped that there will eventually be one or more vaccines that will prevent colds, but this remains a hope for the distant future. There arc so many different kinds of cold virus that a vaccine would have to be developed for each. It might, however be possible to combine several vaccines in a single injection. It is now known that sitting in a draft or getting your feet wet are not nearly so hazardous as mingling, kissing or shaking hands with those who have or are about to have colds. Lowered resistance through fatigue, exposure to superheated dry air and poor nutrition may be added factors. To prevent the spread of colds, it helps to wash your hands after touching your nose and to cover your face and turn your head when you cough or sneeze. You should wash your hands often — especially before eating. If you do get a cold, remember that it is a self-limited disease. In spite of the ads, there is no vitamin, antibiotic, or electric gadget that will shorten its course. There are drugs that may relieve some broken. 8. Persons driving motor cars disturbed. Heavy furniture over-turned. 9. Ground cracked conspicuously. Underground pipes broken. 10. Ground badly cracked. Rails bent. 11. Bridges destroyed. Earth slumps and land slipes in soft ground. 12. Damage total. Waves seen on ground surface. Lines of sight and level destroyed. Anyone who has ever experienced a hangover will immediately recognize these conditions. of your discomfort although none can be guaranteed to do so. One of the best drugs for this purpose is aspirin. But even this is not as good as allowing yourself an extra hour or two of sleep at night and drinking a glass of fluid (fruit juice, weak tea, or plain water) every hour or two during the day. Laxatives will not cure your cold and will only add to your misery. On the other hand, common sense and a little fortitude will take you far.
