Pag« 16 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA FEBRUARY 6, 1964 Let the state explain the leash law need The City should bring to Redlands the key officials who are responsible for the statewide enforcement of anti-rabies regulations Mayor Charles Parker said Tuesday evening. The Council then instructed the city manager's office to invite Dr. George L. Humphries, state Public Health Veterinarian, to come here—probably for a public meeting on leash law enforcement This proposal recognizes the fact that the leash law can only be enforced if there is a general public agreement that keeping dogs under control is really necessary. In the end, compliance with the law must be 99 per cent voluntary. The humane officer and the Gourts can only be effective when nearly everyone agrees that dogs should not run free. If Dr. Humphries does come to Redlands, citizens who have doubts or misgivings about the necessity for rabies control, and about the methods now being used, should have an opportunity for face-to-face questions and answers. After all, it isn't our municipal government that initiated the enforcement program. City and county officials are merely seeking to carry out the orders that originate with the state and come down the governmental ladder to the hometown level. Reading thrives Americans, who have been admonished in the past for being cultural illiterates, are reading more now and liking it better. Results of a nationwide survey by the American Library Association show that consumption of both fiction and nonfiction is rising •—at least accordng to reports from 84 library systems in cities of 35,000 to 40,000 population. "It is apparent that Americans not only are reading more each year, they are reading more seriously and are selecting more significant literature," says David H. Clift, executive director of the ALA. In fiction, there was a shift during 1963 away from westerns and light romances toward historical, biographical, psychological, political and mystery novels. In nonfiction, science and technology, health, travel, education, business and international affairs were favorite topics. Significantly, rather than competing w i t h libraries for people's time, the communications media — newspapers, magazines, radio, television — have generated much of this new interest in serious reading. Librarians credited ccrverage by mass media for a growing awareness of and interest in the world about them on the part of library patrons. Not only news stories but book reviews in newspapers and magazines stimulated demand for library materials. Footnote of interest in an election year: Out of 30 libraries, 23 said this interest reflected a growing conservatism in their communities. Seven claimed it reflected a growing liberalism. Revoke Burton's visa Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who are not man and wife, travel about the world as if they were. There are laws against this sort of tiling. Yet, no one considers any police chief or sherrif derelict in his duty for failing to arrest them. In Congress there is at least a flicker of hope that officialdom will be stirred to some action. The Immigration and Naturalization Service officials have been questioned in a closed meeting about the possibility of revoking the British actor's visa according to Rep. Michael A. Feighan, chairman of the appropriate subcommittee. He says that the State Department has agreed to "re-examine its position" and results are expected "soon". It would be a victory for decency if the British actor was declared an unwelcome person in the United States. We don't wish the British any bad luck, but they are welcome to Liz, also. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore "Did you sec that crazy Imogene Coca on Danny Kaye's show last night? ... I thought I'd bust a gut." "No, I didn't catch her. I was watching the Olympics, instead. You ought to see that event where they ski and shoot rifles. It's wierd." It's the morning coffee break and the television post mortem is in full swing. But, not everyone can take part, not if they follow Benja-min Franklin's advice about "Early to bed, and early to rise. . . " Too much programming comes after 10 p.m. Those who go to bed at an "a reasonable hour" never do see such performers as Jack Paar, nor are they around for the specials such as NBC's "Bay of Pigs" which was shown at 10 p.m. Tuesday. Late television has made of Americans a people who are inclined to be after-breakfast yawners . . . and more prone to be tardy to work than their father's would have dared to be. lust why television can hold a late audience, when it's predecessor, radio, never did. is a good topic for starting a dinner conversation. Some will say that radio listening was a passive occupation and after an hour or two. you quit. TV. on the contrary, has you hooked by both the ear and (he eye. Whatever the reason may be •AC have been checking into the files to be sure that radio programming was generally lacking in late entertainment. For this comparison we picked the first week in February 194G — the last year of radio dominance before commercial television. This shows that the two big hours :or the net work, big- name programs, were 6 and 7 p.m. Jn that February week some of the 6 and 6:30 features were: Amos'n Andy, Fibber Mc- Ccc and Molly, Eddie Cantor, Frank Sinatra, Andre Koste- lanelz and Bob Burns. Some 7 o'clock listings were: Contented flour. Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Kay Kyser. Abbot and Costcllo and Jimmy Durante. About the only notable performers between 8 and 9 were Burns and Allen. In Ibe 3 o'clock spot were the Telephone Hour and Dinah Shore. By 10 p.m. there was nothing left but a spate of newscasts followed by music. As you know from current experience, television is going full blast until 11 o'clock. The strong programming extends about two hours longer than radio did and then virtually rings down the curtain, as radio did, with a newscasters free for ail. This is a tribute to the ability of television to hold its audience, in spite of all the snide remarks that arc made about "the wasteland". The medium should, accordingly, change its ornithology. They should replace their beloved peacock, with spreading and colorful tail, with the bird to whom TV owes so much — the Night Owl.

Postponing the tobacco ads until after the children are in bed may be a good idea. Also how about holding off the pet food commercials until the dog is asleep? A college education is likely to improve a man's financial situation in later life, even after deducting the cost of season tickets to alma mater's football games and contributions to the alumni fund. We are encouraged by word that work on Project Mohole, drilling a shaft deep into the innards of the earth, is to proceed. Maybe down there, if nowhere else, we will find somebody who likes us. A newly converted admirer of Lyndon Johnson sighs, "What a wonderful Republican he'd have made." A man may steer his course for success by some inspirational motto but he has to achieve success before he has the courage to hang it on the office wall.

WHITE WASHINGTON — The vaguely grandiose and infinitely dangerous efforts of Charles de Gaulle of France to promote some so- called neutralization of Southeast Asia under the kindly auspices of the Chinese Communists have had ill effects already. They have emboldened the Chinese Communists — who already were by far the most aggressive and menacing members of the international Communist bloc — to begin to act as though they had no problems left in their design of conquest in Southeast Asia. The current arguments are varied: We shouldn't be o u t there in the first place. Or, anyhow, if we should, we can't really stay because the problem is hopeless and Papa de Gaulle knows best. Haven't the French been out there much longer than we, and aren't they much more experienced? So whatever else de Gaulle may do, he has accomplished one thing already. He has put the Free World position in Southeast Asia under the twin pressures of a brutal Chinese Communist expansionism abroad and the spirit of appeasement here at home. His proposals for the "neutralization" of Laos. Cambodia and Viet Nam are treated with astonishing respect by a whole section of American opinion- makers which is capable of forgetting the most blazingly obvious facts. ITEM. France, the "expert" in dealing with Southeast Asia, was driven 10 years ago from Southeast Asia in the partition of the old Indo-China under Communist attack. ITEM. "Neutralization" has been for 10 s'ears the watchword — with this result to date: Agressivc Communist troop cadres still stand, after a decade, in Laos in open violation of a treaty. Cambodia clings to a perilous "neutrality." Viet Nam, divided between North and South, is the scene of a nasty hot war of North Vietnamese agression in which 15,000 American troops are trying to assist anti-Communist South Vict Nam. ITEM: France, to all but the most naively credulous, is try ing to get back into Southeast Asia on the back of American efforts to halt the very Communist incursions that expelled France from Southeast Asia in the first place. France, moreover, has neither the slightest capability nor the slighest intention to put a single French soldier into Southeast Asia to prevent the Communist takeover that would obviously result from neutralization. De Gaulle's proposals are thus demonstrably irresponsible unless the kind of neutralization he is talking about could, for once, be a genuine and not a phony neutralization. Thus, President Johnson's position is that he would be glad to consider neutralization — but only if both Viet Nams are to be truly neutralized. His point, though some profess to be quite unable to follow it. is simple enough: He is not interested in a neutralization of South Viet Nam so long as a "neutralized" North Vict Nam continues to serve as the base for armed Communist attacks on South Vict Nam because of its crime of remaining anti-Communist. This is the kind of unthink that General de Gaulle, whatever his good intentions, is actually promoting. And this is the kind of unthink that many Americans are falling for, in the incredible notion that the way to stability in Southeast Asia is to let the Chinese Communists run unchecked. Some of de Gaulle's people, indeed, seriously suggest that the West need only give the Chinese enough rope and eventually they will use it to wrap a noose around Soviet Russia. This extraordinary theory is that if you feed the tiger long enough, he will later bite somebody else and not you. The one bright ray in all this business is the fact that President Johnson, though belabored at home by opinion for neutralization and abroad by the extraordinary deference being paid to General de Gaulle's curioui policies, has not the slightest intention to let Southeast Asia fall to Communist military expansion. Nor, happily, does a single one of the Republican Presidential aspirants. (Copyright, 1964. by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) THE DOCTOR SAYS Body function is impaired if enzyme balance slips By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt We all know what it means when we lose our balance. But what happens when we lose our enzyme balance? Several hundred enzymes control thousands of reactions in the human body, so any enzyme imbalance of one type or another is not to be wondered at. Each enzyme has a specific task to perform and, when the body fails to manufacture any one of them, some function is impaired. Only a few enzymes have been reproduced in the laboratory. All of them are classed as proteins and hundreds still remain to be discovered. The enzymes in the digestive tract have been known for decades. Those in the saliva convert starch into simple sugars; Teletips LIGHTER SIDE Bunny in footnote WASHINGTON (UPD—When At a By DICK WEST .. OOOOoaoh ... this is going to be a BEAUTIFUL jump, but that rip in his stretch pants might cost him points . . ." it comes to exercising judicial restraint, at least as far as language is concerned, no agen cy of government can quite match the National Labor Relations Board. The NLRB's knack of finding just the right phrase to sum up a delicate or complicated situa tion was neatly demonstrated recently in a case that arose in New York. It involved a petition by the Restaurant Workers Union to form a bargaining unit at the Playboy Club. One of the main issues the board had to resolve was whether such a unit would include the famous "bunny girls" who have become a sort of Playboy Club trademark. The union contended that the bunnies were, in effect, waitresses and should be included. Management, on the other hand, argued that the bunnies were more like "actresses on a stage." hearing on the case, certain pertinent facts were elicited, such as: —One of the considerations in the hiring of a bunny is "an attractive and provocative appearance." —Bunnies work under the supervision of a woman who is known as — you should pardon the expression — a "bunny mother." —Bunnies "are expected to portray the image identified with Playboy Clubs throughout the country." —Previous experience as a waitress is not required. It also was established, however that bunnies "take orders for drinks, place the orders with bartenders, serve drinks to the customers, and share tips with bartenders and bus boys." After carefully weighing the evidence, NLRB Regional Di- recor Ivan C. McLeod concluded that the bunnies "Share a community of interest with other employes who service the TOP SHOW: — 9:00, Chan. 11.

If you've never seen a Playboy Bunny in the flesh or in photographs, any attempt on my part to describe them would probably be misleading. McLeod, however felt obliged to include a definition of a bunny in his decision on the case. He did so in a footnote which I hope will be included in future legal textbooks as a model judicious pronouncement. "The name bunny," he wrote, "is derived from the distinctive costume worn by female em ployes who have contact with customers. "Any resemblance to the traditional bunny is, at best coincidental." stomach enzymes turn milk into curds and break down proteins into simpler compounds, and those in the pancreas break down proteins and fats into substances that can be absorbed into the blood. Insulin from the pancreas is not released into the digestive tract but directly into the blood. This and other internally secreted enzymes are called hormones. Your doctor can use enzymes as an aid to diagnosis or as a form of treatment. For example an enzyme manufactured by germs so they can resist penicillin can be used to treat a person who is having an allergic reaction to that drug. Some scientists beb'eve that every disease in the catalogue is due to some form of enzyme imbalance and that time will unravel the mysteries. Q—Is it true that honey is less harmful to the teeth than other forms of sugar? How important is it to limit a child's intake of sugar for the sake of his teeth? A — Honey would affect the teeth in the same way as sugar. Children should eat a balanced diet but they need proportionately more sugar than adults because they use up so much energy. In order to protect their teeth you should give them sweets only at mealtime and have them brush their teetb after every meal or snack.
