S3 a i hi Facts Page 20 REDIANDS, CALIFORNIA FEBRUARY 12, 1964 Lincoln for us, today Abraham Lincoln still lives. Almost a century after his death, his memory is familiar and comfortable as the penny which bears his likeness. Lincoln is a fine automobile. . . a school on Texas street. . . a Shrine in our Library park . . a pilgrimage of our Boy and Girl Scouts ... a traditional community dinner. . . an essay contest in our schools. His biographers are legion. Lincolnia fills our shrine and our library. On the national stage, politicians routinely quote him. Throughout much of the land almost every schoolchild, at one time or another, memorizes the Gettysburg address. When the Negro people of America wish to dramatize in the most forceful way their concern for Civil Rights, it is at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington that they mass. Abraham Lincoln lias counseled us for 100 years, yet we have too seldom listened. He lias shown us the road to brotherhood, yet we have too often set our faces against it. For too many of us, Lincoln has been an abstraction, a school holiday, a head carved in the rocks of the Dakotas. But last November all America touched Lincoln and we really knew him for perhaps the first time. Abraham Lincoln can no longer be merely a figure in history. For the fourth time in a century, our country's faith in reason and the basic humanity of man was cruelly shaken by the bullet which took the life of a president. We were bewildered, saddened, angered. Later, numbly, we thought back to Lincoln and to the legacy that lives in his words. With John Kennedy's assassination, those words were more clearly understood. Abraham Lincoln's eloquent wisdom has been carefully and reverently passed to us. It still makes our minds soar and our heartbeats quicken, but unless it makes our hands move, it is empty sound upon the air. Can we not help but hope that the sobering events of the past year have given Lincoln's words a new vigor? We have touched Lincoln and, in turn, have been touched by him. Remembering this, perhaps we can make his memory more meaningful, now and in the future, by sharing and working toward his cherished hope that "by the best cultivation of the physical world beneath and around us, and by the best intellectual and moral world within us, we shall secure an individual, social and political prosperity and happiness whose courage shall be onward and upward and which, while the earth endures, shall not pass away." Chop out the State Fair (Ontario Report) Since money is uppermost in the considerations of state legislators during the opening examination of Governor Brown's $3 billion-plus state budget, California lawmakers should take a realistic look at the California State Fair and Exposition. This record S3.66 billion Brown Administration budget shows the State Fair will operate at a deficit of §533,910. This item should make any moneyminded legislator pause, for this proposed 5533,910 deficit is greater than th» $518,361 deficit in the 1963-64 budget, which in turn was greater than the deficit in the 1962-63 state budget In other words, every year the people of California lose more money on this government-operated entertainment organization that never should have been continued in the first place. As a matter of fact, the California State Fair has never yet operated on a self-sustaining basis for a single year since it was revived after World War II. Every year the taxpayers of the state have watched it roll up a deficit of half a million dollars or more. In addition, county and district fairs will spend better than $2y» million more than they will take in as gate receipts, rentals and through other legitimate sources. This means that more than $3 million a year is diverted from the pockets of California taxpayers to cover deficits for these carnivals and horse racing sessions. If they met a legitimate need, they would pay their own way. Since California is hard-pressed for enough revenue to meet its bona fide needs, this is the time to chop out the State Fair and Exposition. It is a luxury at best, a complete waste of public money at worst Either way, there is no justification for continuing to operate at public expense. The Newsreel Russia is offering foreign students free tuition and up to $2,500 a year. And they don't even have to play football? Many another country in Latin America would probably like to have a canal to get indignant about Barry Goldwater generously offers senator Smith a ride in his airplane, although she may worry about its having too much Right Wing. Walter Tippy thinks he ought to be commissioned at least a Brigadier General in the war against poverty on the basis of what he has learned in about 50 years of close association with the enemy. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore By BILL MOORE WURZBURG, Germany — Aboard the Rhcinpfeil. the German railways crack train, this ancient cily in the heart o£ Franccnia is less than three hours norlh of Munich. When the slogan "Next time take the train." was created it was surely meant for the Rhein- ufcil. a train more super than the Super Chief. Never had wc ridden in such comfort — in such luxury — at such speed that the I?0 miles goes by before you know it. As wc sat in the elegant dining car enjoying a cup of clear soup with egg and mushroom omelette, a light snow was falling. It was snug and warm in the car and wc did not envy the bundled Germans wc .saw as wc sped along through the rolling countryside. After a six minute stop a f Nurnberg. only stop of the trip, the storm lifted and riding in an astra-domc car gave an exciting panoramic view of this beautiful part of Germany. Wurzburg, an industrial and wine center, was one of the most severely bombed cities in World War II. More than 80 per cent of the buildings were damaged or destroyed by an RAF incendiary raid in 1345. So complete was the destruction that Wurzburg became a shrine to the horror of war and was never to be rebuilt. For three years it lay in shattered ruin, but the survivors of Wurzburg were determined to restore their city and they convinced the government by their efforts that Wurzburg would rise again. What has happened here since 1918 is part of the miracle of Free Germany. Today Wurzburg is a thriving metropolis of more than 100.009 prosperous citizens. It is a tribute to the spirit of a past which produced such greats as Roetcngcn who discovered the X-ray in this very city. But even though World War II is nearly two decades into history, war goes on in Wurzburg. A convoy of U.S. Army trucks tics up traffic on the main throughfare as supplies go out to the Third Division quartered here. To the cast a mere 25 miles away is the heavily guarded border of Czechoslovakia. American GI's carrying rifles with live ammunition dig fox holes in the wintcrbound soil and American tanks take positions with guns aimed at the Communists forces to the cast. When an alert is called, none can be sure that it is not the real thing and an occasional burst of gunfire makes everyone doubly uneasy. For Lt. William Craig, husband of Joanne Finlay, daughter of the Madison Finlays of Redlands, the Cold War is cold indeed in February in Wurzburg. Fresh out of law school, Lt. Craig finds an "exercise in the field" no bed of roses. A defense attorney in the judge advocate general's department, he has such cases as a GI who got lost and strayed across the Czech border, was shot at by the Communists, but got back safely. For this incident he was to be punished. Craig pleaded that being shot at by the enemy was punishment enough. Possibly the commander would relent. Time would tell. Despite the tension, war is not all hell in Wurzburg. For, an inquisitive young couple like Will and Joanne, (here is a fascination to being stationed in Germany. They enrolled in a course in the German language made available by the University of Maryland. In four months of intensive study they had completed the first year of college German and are now far advanced. Hard as the language is for an American, they find that they can communicate with the people of Wurzburg and the practical application of their studies makes the course a joy. Their quarters are on the fourth floor of the modern apartment house three blocks from the main shopping street downtown. Breaking up the monotony of a sea of rooftops arc the spires and domes of one of Wurzburg's many fine old churches and on beyond are the steep slopes up from the banks of the river Main. On the terraces arc the vineyards which since the eighth century have produced the fine Franconia wines. Around the corner a block away is the Holy Ghost Burger- spitel keller — a wine cellar under a hospital, a common thing in Wurzburg. I£ the patrons imbibe too heavily, they have only to go upstairs for treatment. Wc investigated this keller and concluded that while this might go well in Wurzburg it would never do as an annex to the proposed addition of Redlands Community Hospital. > Afifc-OLD PROBLEM OF POVERTY ADMINISTRATION DECLARATION Of WAR BALLY-HOO * WHERt SHALL I HIT HIM FIRST ?

WASHINGTON (UPI) — If a Russian beats an American sliding down a hill, what does this mean? To me, it means that the Russian can slide down the hill faster than the American. But I apparently have a narrow view, reflecting a strong disinclination to slide down hills myself. The wider, or global, view of the matter has been pungently expressed by Rep. Louis C. Wyman, R-N. J., in a series ofj statements on the recent Win ter Olympic Games. Wyman asserted that "the proud name of the United States" was being "eroded as a world image" by defeats in these games. "Already the cry is being heard 'wait until 1968,'" he said. "But, my friends, at the rate we are going wc may never reach 1968." Gee whiz! This kind of shakes me up. The British used won "on the playing fields of Eton," but I never realized that our survival hinged on the fortunes of our stretch pants and barrel stave brigade. If Wyman is right, and I have no reason to doubt it, then we need to give the situation some deep thought, as Wyman and I have already been doing. Wyman charged that the Soviets were using "professional ringers" against our amateurs. If that continues, he said, the United States may have to "fight fire with fire" by extending government aid to our athletes. He may have a point there, but I doubt the climate is right for it. There was, you may recall, a loud outcry in Congress last year when it was learned that the Agriculture Department had granted a loan to develop a ski resort in Pennsylvania. Besides that, subsidizing ath- Washington Window Work cur out fcr Democrats In Texas By Lyle C. Wilson The greatest balancing act since High Wire B I o n d i n pranced above Niagara Falls is taking place among the top Democratic politicians in Texas with President Johnson in charge. The President is trying to balance the 1964 Democratic ticket in Texas. The ticket may be balanced with a conservative shoo-in for the Democratic candidate for governor and a Democratic liberal shoo - in to run for the U.S. Senate. This delicate balance between conservative and liberal Democrats could leave everybody happy or anyway less angry than they might otherwise have been. Further, it is designed to avoid Democratic primary contests for either nomination which might so damage the party as to permit the Republicans to elect another candidate to high office in Texas. Texas has been tending a bit toward two-party politics. Rc- publican presidential candidates carried Texas in 1928, 1952 and 195S. Lyndon Johnson was put on the 1960 Democratic ticket by John F. Kennedy to hold the Texas electors. What else Johnson might accomplish in the South would be so much frosting on the cake. Johnson is not likely to need any help in winning Texas' 24 electoral votes in this year's presidential election. But the balancing act he is imposing on Texas Democrats is a good hedge against unexpected trouble. Roy McGhcc reported last week from Washington, D.C., that: "The awesome power of the White House was brought directly to bear on Democratic party chieftains in Texas to safeguard President Johnson's liberal image in other parts of the United States." McGhcc is a member of the Washington bureau of United Press International with some special responsibility for Texas news. He explained that Johnson's awesome power had been used to chivvy Rep. Joe Kilgore, D-Tex.. out of this year's contest for the Democratic senatorial nomination. Kilgore would have opposed in the primary Sen. Ralph Yarborough, a liberal Democrat. Kilgore had the support of Gov. John B. Connally, a one - time aide and long time political associate of President Johnson. A Texas Democratic slate headed by conservatives Connally and Kilgore might have persuaded big city northern voters to suspect that Johnson also was tainted by southern conservatism. ! Protect Connally Texas dispatches now relate that the President has moved to protect Connally from a primary contest with another Tex- scnator. This Yarborough is Don who missed by a whisker defeating Connally for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination two years ago. The President's thumbs down evidently cither will get Don Yarborough out of the primary contest altogether or cut him down to bite size for Connally. Connally is regarded as a conservative by Texas liberals. Texas Republicans do not regard Connally as a bona fide conservative. The story of the Democratic party in Texas is of angry struggle between liberals and conservatives. Each wing controls about 15 per cent of the party. They battle for the middle 70 per cent which is not absolutely committed in politics. John F. Kennedy's visit to Texas last November was to heal the party breach. President Johnson is continuing the effort to make a deal. THE DOCTOR SAYS Cholesterol may have accomplices By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt What causes hardening of the arteries and especially the deposits in the coronary arteries that arc associated with so many heart attacks'." Browsing through the maze of medical literature on this subject is like reading a whodunit. In this case, however, wc cannot rule out the butler — or the butter. For over 10 years we have been hot on the trail of cholesterol. I still think he's guilty but it is beginning to look as though he has some accomplices in crime. The foremost of these is a group of products which, like cholesterol, is derived from your body fats. These are the triglycerides and they, along with cholesterol, do what the detectives would call an inside job. But first there must be a weak spot in the artery due to overstretching or an inherited defect. If this localized weakness is great enough, little plaques will form in the arterial wall regardless of the amount of fat derived chemicals in the blood. The greater the amount of plaque - forming substances in German switch to cigarillos girls to say that their battles were'letes would only solve part of HAMBURG, Germany (UPI) —West German girls have begun smoking cigarillos — tiny cigars — the nation's cigar industry disclosed today. A spokesman for the industry said the sale of cigarillos has skyrocketed in West Germany ever since the U. S. Surgeon general's report linking cigarette smoking to lung cancer was published. "Even women and girls are switching from cigarettes to cigarillos," he said. the problem. Also to be considered is the fact that there are large areas in this country where skiing is impractical. Florida, for example. A better approach might be bo try to persuade the Olympic committee to expand the games to other events. Wyman's charge about "professional ringers" suggests one possibility. Our chances in the Olympics would be greatly enhanced if there were a contest in horseshoe pitching. Or, taking literally Wyman's remark about fighting fire with fire, why not have an Olympic contest in fire fighting? The only other solution I can see is for our meteorologists to find a means of producing blizzards all across the nation. Some of the tourists in Miami might complain, but the republic would stand for another four years. the blood, the greater the likelihood of arterial hardening. Triglycerides in normal concentration remain in solution in the blood, but when the concentration exceeds the saturation point they combine with cholesterol ( a normal and essential constituent) and form the insoluble particles of which the plaques are made. Even with this knowledge we not say definitely that restricting the fat in your diet will insure you against arteriosclerosis. Persons who were subjected to severe fat restriction but who used sugars and starches to supply the calories formerly supplied by fats were found to have an even higher triglyceride concentration in their blood than when they were allowed a more liberal amount of fat. It would appear, too, that another accomplice is lack of exercise. Persons who walk several miles a day or otherwise use their muscles in their work have lower concentrations of cholesterol and tryglycerides than their more sedentary neighbors. Because cholesterol is manufactured in the body tissues, the amount of it in your diet is not the important consideration. What is important is how much you yourself manufacture. A high concentration of cholesterol and triglyceride in your blood does not always spell an early heart attack, but there can be no doubt that it increases the risk.
