That the Redlands school district already has plans well under way was explained to School Trustees recently by Robert K. Burley, coordinator of pupil personnel services for the district. His aim is to create a VD educational program which can naturally be part of the physical education curriculum at junior and senior high school levels. But this isn't always easy. For, as he put it, "to add something to the curriculum, some —fn 1962, syphillis and gonor-i rhea, combined, ranked first among reportable communcable diseases in the entire county, well ahead of measles or tuberculosis. —Surveys conducted bw priv-l; ate physicians indicate that for j each case diagnosed and reported, nine cases are unre-j ported. This means the true VD picture looms up to nearly 7,-{ 000 cases in the county. "The greatest danger seen isj in the sharp increases noted nationwide in the 15-19 age range. A sizeable number of these | cases are appearing in respectable neighborhoods where, previously, reported cases were' non-existent.

MYLER United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — The first Americans on the moon will land standing up. Through smallish triangular windows, the two Apollo astro nauts will be able to see a bit of what's below them. But in feeling their way down to a safe landing they'll need what every good helicopter pilot has a lot of—ability to fly "by the seat of the pants." If first contact with the lunar surface shows it to be soft or otherwise dangerous, the astronauts will have about two minutes of hovering time to find a better spot in an area of about 10 miles. If they can't find one, they'll have to beat it back to where they came from. This is the way Dr. Wernher von Braun described the Apollo lunar landing maneuver to reporters at an informal lunch gathering Monday.

He disclosed that major changes have been made in design of the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) to save weight and give the pilots more visibility. LEM is the little capsule in which two astronauts will descend to the lunar surface — JThe storm snowclouds flocked IN HOLLYWOOD "Idiotic optimism" keeps film going By Erskine Johnson PALM SPRINGS — (NEA)-ily obscured by clouds and hopefully in early 1969 — from an Apollo spacecraft in orbit 100 miles above the moon. Originally it was planned that the LEM pilots would ride down to the moon strapped in seats from which they could look out upon space through large square windows. This was bad both from weight and visibility standpoints. Sitting down. the pine trees high on the slopes of towering Mt. San Jacinto and splattered rain drops on the warm sands of Palm Canyon 12,000 feet below. Looking up at the desert sun's unexpected game of now-you- see-me, now-you-don't, movie- maker John (The Great Escape) Sturges laughed: In this business you must the pilots wouldn't get much of j have idiotic optimism, a look at what they were head- Two hours earlier, before the ing for. sudden clouds came to darken Instead of sitting, the astronauts will stand, supported by slings which will help absorb; any shock in landing. They will be closer to their windows, which thus can be made smaller. Cut Capsule's Weight Elimination of the seats, along with rcjiggcring of LE.M's interior arrangements thus made possible, will cut the landing capsule's weight by aj ton or so. LEM's descent rocket will enable it to hover briefly. Each pilot will be able to see one of the craft's extended landing legs. If a leg sinks on contact, the astronaut in command will gun the rocket engine and pull up for a new try. If the exhaust of the descent rocket kicks up a lot of dust the man at the controls will be in the fix of a helicopter pilot trying to ease down on dry snow whipped into an artificial blizzard by the rotors. He will have to feel his way "by the seat of his pants." If they are unable to find a the camera lens and give the Chamber of Commerce reason for fingernail biting, the sky was blue and the crew perspired under the hot desert sun. But that "idiotic optimism" kept the film company waiting Sturges decides to wrap it up for the day. A little idiotic optimism goes a long way. A few years ago Sturges directed the classic, "Bad Day at Black Rock." This location on the California desert today, he admits, is more like "Cold Day at Hot Rock." Hollywood is getting back to pure entertainment without problems or messages, and that's the category in which Sturges puts "The Satan Bug:" "A suspense drama, a two-hour chase about which, I hope, audiences will say, "That was great entertainment.' " The plot centers around a supersecret government repository for biological warfare materials. One heavily-guarded in the canyon and, at last, the weapon—a liquid so lethal that sun reappeared. As fast as it had been halted, filming started again on Sturges' latest movie, "The Satan Bug." The film is a suspense thriller starring George Maharis in his first movie since he escaped the clutch of that sports convertible on television's "Route 66." "Action," says Sturges. And ->n the canyon's narrow, winding highway a police patrol car, red lights flashing, meets and stops beside a car driven by Maharis. The dialog revolves around "Which way did they go?" and then the cars speed off in opposite directions as a clap of thunder rolls down from j the still-obscured top of I mountain. one teaspoonful in air or water could contaminate the entire world, killing off everyone — is known as the Satan bug. When a mad scientist anonymously threatens to unleash the bug, hero Maharis goes into action as Hollywood's version of England's James Bond. Working for a supersec­ ret U. S. agency, he starts to track down the madman who reveals his timetable, but not himself. One sequence will have Ma­ haris and the scientist fighting for possession of the deadly 'liquid in a helicopter duel while the city of Los Angeles, below them, is being evacuated.

DON'T YOU READ BEFORE YOU BUY? Most people do. They count on advertising in print to give them the information they want on products that interest them—information on features ... designs... and prices, for example. People not only read about products and services, they show ads to their family and friends; they clip coupons for information and samples; they tear out ads to take along when they go shopping. People read an ad because they want to (it's never forced on them). They can even check back later; the message is still there. When you add it all up, print advertising— the kind you read in the pages of this newspaper—makes sense. And because it measures up to the buying habits of consumers, print makes sales. Most people read and then buy. Don't you? Datli Action delayed by planners on Calimesa zoning SAN BERNARDINO (CNS) —Action on a proposed 46-space trailer park in the Calimesa area was put off for three weeks at the recent County Planning Commission meeting to give the Board ' of Supervisors time to act on a change of zone pending before it. Joe Mulder asked the commission Thursday to grant site approval for his trailer park, on property on the east side of 5th street, north of County Line road. Neil Pfulb, county planning director, told commissioners that he thought it would be illegal to consider Mulder's appli cation, until Supervisors decided whether or not to grant the change of zone. Mulder is seeking zoning for apartments for his property. The planning commission late last year voted to recommend to Supervisors that the request be granted. But the change of zone, was before Supervisors at their Feb. 3 meeting. There were protests against the rezoning, and Supervisors voted to postpone a decision until they could inspect the property. Pfulb said that R-3 zoningj does allow a trailer park, after site approval. But the Mulder land, lie added, has still not received its zone change, so sitej approval action could not be legally made.

TELEVISION IN REVIEW By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — It is TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or appliances will find a ready market through Classified Ads. now clear why President Charles de Gaulle has been giving England such a hard time about the Common Market He undoubtedly saw the Beatles and decided nothing doing. As you certainly know, America saw the four-member rock 'n' roll British group live on television Sunday night. Pandemonium reigned. Vive le France. In fairness, it should be noted that the boys with the shaggy- dog haircuts are popular smashes all over —in France, too, I believe — and Sunday night was the first of their three appearances on CBS-TV's Ed Sullivan show. They will be back the next two Sundays so you can catch their art. It is silly to get superior or snobbish about the boys. They are simply one of those inexplicable things that burst into a show business phenomenon — with a little professional help—| every so often. They are mere Iy taking advantage of that sound old laissez faire theory that there's a sucker born every minute. The truth is that they are really pretty borning to listen to. Their act is absolutely nothing. Their greatest asset is that they look like rather likeable, almost innocent young fellows who have merely hit a lucky thing. In fact, one gets the impression that they are having a private lark over the silly, screaming girk in the audiences, not to mention the music. I remember reading once that the Beatles actually were doing a parody of rock 'n' roll. I don't know now; their act not usually bring as many dollars as the real thing. I'm inclined, though, to feel they're putting us all on, and if that's the case it's in their favor. They have, by the way, been described as Elvis Presley multiplied by four. Not really. Divide. Judy Garland tossed out the regular format of her weekly CBS-TV series Sunday night, put on a solo concert, and—except for some coy business with an on-stage wardrobe change— had, for about half an hour, the best musical show seen on television this season. Then, with the audience all hers in her special mood, she suddenly began singing a song dedicated to her son Joey, and brought him into the number as a spectator and touched him like a loving mother, but it was pretty embarrassing. Then she did a song for her daughter Lorna, and the same sort of stuff followed with the girL The sock concert atmosphere Miss Garland had built up evaporated, and though she finished strong she never fully recovered. She had three-quarters of a honey of a show. It's a shame about the lapse of taste. BED PARTNERS ABERDEEN, Scotland (UPI) —George Home and his wife, Muriel, felt sorry for their new puppy because it was trembling, so they took it into their bed to keep it warm.
