Pag* 16 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA FEBRUARY 26, 1964 April 28—"Judgment Day" in water-short San Bernardino Under insistent prodding from a citizens group, the Water Action Committee, the San Bernardino City Council has now set April 2S .'is the date for voting on a proposal to annex llie city to the Metropolitan Water District. The purpose of annexation would be to gain an immediate right to a portion of the water which MWD brings to the coastal plain from llie Colorado River. Since a large feeder line goes through Fontana the water is within quick reach of the County Seat. To anyone who follows water affairs in this valley there is only one rational way for San Bernardino people to vote. They should vote for annexation because there is no practical alternative. How much water a city needs is, in the main, determined by how many people live in it, and by the consumption of her businesses and industries. How much water a city in this valley c;in use is limited by a court order. Legal decisions — not how much water is in the ground — control. The plain fact is that San Bernardino presently needs more water than it will have a right to pump when the Orange County Water judgment goes into force, as it soon will. All talk about cost, the MWD as an orgrc, and )cgsl sleight of hand to nullify the Orange county judgment, is irrelevant. There arc, however, a great many people in San Bernardino who do not want to believe this. What they want to think is that il is not necessary to pay the additional taxes that MWD would impose upon them. They are ihus able to rationalize away the necessity for supplemental water, persuading themselves that if black is not white it is at least grey. Now that the election date has been set the immediate problem of the leadership group becomes people, not water as such. In two previous elections of modern vintage the citizens of San Bernardino have cast a majority of their votes against MWD and staved off annexation. It is said that many minds have now been changed by the Orange County Suit, the factor that should be controlling in the thinking of any objective person. For the welfare of our neighbors, it is to be hoped that this is true, but the conversion remains to be demonstrated on April 2S. Since San Bernardino finds itself in a position of being unable to wait for northern California water until 1972, that city is acting independently from the rest of us in the San Bernardino Valley Municipal District. We regret, that the peoples of the district find it necessary to cease acting in concert on the great issue of supplemental water but recognize that the Orange County suit compels the County Seat to go it alone. We are at least gratified that San Bernardino waited until after the state authorities had decided to go ahead with the East Branch of the California aqueduct, thereby giving us assurance of additional water by 1972. This election will not cloud the fate of the High Line, for it has already been sealed. Better U. S. 'Meerschaum 1 Here's good news for loose-onded, ex-cigarette smokers and-or secret admirers of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Allen Dulles, Norman Rockwell, Bennett Cerf and a number of others: The Corn Industries Foundation has announced the results of scientific project MO Pipe 12. Put in simple terms for the layman, it means that better corncob pipes are in the offing. MO Pipe 12 is a new hybrid corn with an exceptionally hard cob that was developed by Dr. Marcus S. Zuber at the University of Missouri. It is perhaps the greatest breakthrough in the field since 1S69, when a Missouri farmer named John Seharnke had the first pipe bowl fashioned from a corncob. Only three companies in the nation make corncob pipes, and because only Missouri bottomlands seem able to produce the quality cobs needed, they have made Washington, Mo. the corncob capital of the world. They are currently speculating on what would happen if they could get women interested in corncob pipes.

If you feel frustrated, a doctor recommends, work it off by yelling at the boss. After you do, of course, how you are going to have the money to pay the doctor isn't too clear. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and BUI Moore By BILL. MOORE EN" ROUTE VIA MOZART EXPRESS, Salzburg to Munich — Princess Windischdcraz served tea to four Itedlanders in the Haus Christoforetti in the late afternoon in historic St. Wolfgang. The princess lacked none of the initiative that had made her great-grandfather a hero to the Hapsburgs when he led the re- conquest of Prague in 1848. In fact Dr. Henry Dittmar and Mrs. Dittmar and .Mrs. Moore and I were practically overwhelmed by her combination of salesmanship and showmanship. It was a cold afternoon in St. Wolfgang and the amber light of the sinking sun was coloring the sharp peaks that make this one of the most enchanting spots in Austria. True the lake, so blue in summertime, was frozen except for a small pool in the center and boys were ice skating near the shore. The White Horse Inn wa.; closed and workmen were tearing it down for remodeling and modernizing. There were no tourists in St. Wolfgang and no customers in the Haus where the Princess awaited eagerly to serve her fine pastries and black coffee topped with nn ample portion of slag (whipped cream). She greeted us with the fervor of an innkeeper meeting his first guest in a long time. We were welcome, very welcome indeed. Surely this was a strange contrast to moments in history that Hashed through our minds as we sat near a radiator warm and co/y in a snowbound world. Kor here in St. Wolfgang just one thousand years ago in 'J'2 Wolfgang had come to build a hermitage and establish a church and village. Long after the saint had gone to his heavenly reward a small church of late Gothic and baroque was built in the period 1-I30-77. Its central feature, an altar with extraordinarily fine wood carvings, was in this Lenten season obscured from view by a screen of religious paintings. As wc stood in the freezing cold church wc could not help but think of all the love and devotion that had gone into building it and that it had been a place of worship since before Columbus set foot on the Western hemisphere. In our time St. Wolfgang and its hostelry had inspired the musical comedy "The White Horse Inn*' which Dr. Dittmar had seen in its premier in Berlin in 1930. Recently he and Mrs. Dittmar had been enraptured by this delightful show in a performance in Vienna. Perhaps that had something to do with our being in St. Wolfgang in February, for we had hardly arrived at the home of the University of Redlands in Europe than it was suggested that we go for a drive. We had seen the DiUmars a year ago when they arrived with their first group of students and it was with real joy that wc could see them a year later, more experienced, yet still ready for the challenge of coping with the problems of American students abroad. The road, after leaving t h c high speed autobahn (freeway) was icy and Dr. Dittmar drove his black Ford Zephyr sedan with care, especially where the road hugged the shoreline of a large lake. We came through a heavily forested pass and looked down into St. Wolfgang. There was a ski lift bringing skiers back from the slopes on a high peak. As we ncared St. Wolfgang we wondered if any of the happy skiers knew, or recalled, that it was here at the White Horse Inn that Von Ribbentrop had come in 1939 from his nearby villa to met with Josef Stalin's envoy and plot the pact that was to let Adolf Hitler send t h e Wehrmacht into Poland and enflame the world in its greatest conflict. Few pause to read the long list of names chiseled in stone next to the church of those who gave the last measure of devotion to the madman and the Third Reich. What a travesty on the beauty and history of St. Wolfgang that this place should have been picked to play such a fateful role. And blessedly, how soon forgotten, for as we sat chuckling at the antics of Princess Windi­ schdcraz nothing could have been further from our minds.

Yes, our lives are merely strange dark interludes in the electrical display of God the Father!—Eugene O'Neill. A thought for the day — Russian author Dostoyevsky once said: "Tyranny is a habit capable of being developed, and at last becomes a disease . . . the man and the citizen disappear forever in the tyrant." WASHINGTON fUPI) — You undoubtedly will be delighted to learn, if you didn't know it already, that pythons are sold by the "creeping foot." Pythons in good working order currently cost S10 a creeping foot in 10-foot lengths or under. If a python is longer than 10 feet, the price rises sharply. A few years ago, short pythons could be picked up for only S2.50 a creeping foot. Creeping footage, as you can see, is highly susceptible to creeping inflation. The rising cost of pythons and other creatures of the wild was pointed out to a House ap propriations subcommittee re cently by Dr. Theodore H. Reed director of the National Zoo. Reed, who wants Congress to provide more money for animal purchases, reported that giraffes have gone up from $2,000 to S4.500; leopards from $250 to $400; open-bill storks from S32 to $40; entelius monkeys from S5 to $50, and so on. .Members of the subcommit­ tee, who apparently are not very python conscious, accepted this information without comment. Which is not too surprising. As Reed himself noted, "not many people are concerned about snakes." The system of python measurement intrigued me, however. So much so that I contacted J. Lear Grimmer, the zoo's associate director, and asked him to | define a creeping foot. "A creeping foot is an honest foot," Grimmer said. "It means that the python has not been stretched by the dealer who is trying to sell it." lie explained that a python [can be stretched about five per cent beyond its natural length. Which can make a big difference in the price. If, for instance, a nine-foot-six python were stretched beyond 10 feet, the price would just about double. It seems that someone is always trying to deceive a zoo director. And not just animal By Doris Flecson LOS ANGELES — The approach of spring finds Gov. Nelson Rockefeller gaining ground here in the Republican Presidential primary and Democrats wrestling with senatorial primary problems. If Rockefeller enters the San Francisco convention July 13 with two aces, back to back — New York and California — it will be (iifficult to deal him out short of an intense struggle. Here, as elsewhere, the suspicion exists that Eastern internationalists arc preparing t'> slip in Gov. William Scranton of Pennsylvania after a Uockc- feller-GoIdwater deadlock. The same group has nominated the Republican candidate in modern times. Rockefeller forces suspect it of trying to undercut him with some Coldwater delegates in New York, particularly upstate, and this it conceivably could achieve. The group has no standing here. In fact. California Republicans blame it for inducing Richard Nixon to make his ill- fated try for governor in IV',2. a campaign they would like t<i forget and Nixon as well. Part, of Rockefeller's strength lies in just that fact. The California transition l> Scranton would bo much Ie.-.i difficult, though there is considerable grumbling, even among moderates, that, he is an unknown quantity in this vital state. Republicans took heart from Democratic difficulties over Sen. Clair Envies apparent determination to seek re-election despite brain surgery last August. Behind the nomination itself exists a potentially troublesome struggle for power between par­ ly leaders. The past week end offered evidence that the Engle bid for a sympathy vote is faltering. The California Democratic Council gave State Controller Alan Cranston a comfortable endorsement for the Engle scat despite an emotional telephone call to the convention from th« Senator and a tough floor fight by Rep. James Roosevelt. CDC includes the hard-working rank and file, and it is not; : blv liberal. The delegates wept with Engle. particularly when he stumbled over an answer to the question of when he could come to California. Roosevelt's attempted blitz won over many delegates thought friendly to CDC's founding president. Cranston. P.ut in the end Crinston won fil more votes than he needed for a majority. Roosevelt promp'ly promised privately to withdraw. But a notable vote -:t iter. State Attorney Gr-n'-ral Stanley Mosk, gave no siirh rorr.for'mg assurances.

Republicans are prevented from full enjoyment of the Senate scene becau-e tiiey lack a strong candidate v. i t h a new look of their own. President Johnson, who took pains to avoid the CDC battle to which he was physically so close, seems to be riding high here. But his high percentages in polls before he has an opponent will backfire when one is named and Republicans rally to him. Then it will seem that Johnson has fallen further than actually is the case.

Like your left thumb, you don't appreciate it until it's disabled. The thyroid is one of the glands of internal secretion. It manufactures a substance called thyroxin which is an essential regulator of the body's metabolism or the rate at which the body uses energy. When the production of this hormone falls below par, hypothyroidism results. In its mildest form this causes a slowing up of mental and physical activity. In its severer form it results in a condition known as myxedema in which there is list- lcssness and generalized swelling. Fortunately, this can be treated satisfactorily by giving thyroid substance from cattle in carefully regulated doses. At the other end of the spectrum are those persons whose thyroids put out too much thyroxin. They have a high basal metabolic rate, a fast pulse, a fine tremor of the hands and they become very jittery for no external reason. They may have protruding eyeballs and. in a room where others are comfortable, they usually feel too warm. The treatment of this condition requires great skill and no one method is applicable to all cases.

Attorneys for Executor. i First publication Feb. 26. 1064) adults, such antithyroid drugs as propylthiouracil, methimazole and carbimazole usually give the best results. Some doctors prefer to remove part of the thyroid but it is difficult to determine just how much to take out. When too much is removed, hypothyroid develops and thyroid substance must be given. When not enough is removed there is a gradual return of the hyperthyroid state and the operation must be repeated or some other form of treatment must be tried. In older adults the giving of radioactive iodine has largely replaced operation but is subject to the same hazards. Since the radioactive iodine selectively destroys thyroid tissue, too little will not relieve the victim's symptoms and too much will cause myxedema. There is as yet no sure way to determine exactly how much will be required by any given patient. Doctors have gotten old and gray trying to lick this problem and some day they will do it. Meanwhile, the experienced doctor gets some amazingly good results. When complications do arise he has the means to treat them. This brings us to another condition — the large goiter without any hyperactivity of the thyroid. This is usually due to a deficiency of stable (nonradio­ active) iodine in the water supply. The Great Lakes region is sometimes referred to as the Goiter Belt because of the water in that part of the country lacks iodine. Now iodized salt takes care of this problem for most people. The large goiters that caused no symptoms except those due to pressure on the windpipe are rarely seen. dealers are guilty. The animals themselves get pretty sneaky at times. In his statement to the subcommittee. Reed confessed that he was fooled by a gorilla named Moka, which recently gave birth to a baby named Leonard. "It was only three days before the birth that we decided that she was pregnant," he said. ''Naturally, I am chagrined at not knowing that such an important animal as a gorilla was pregnant." The mistake, however, was understandable. Everyone assumed Moka had "merely lost her figure." The circumstances of William H. Vanderbilt's oft- quoted statement, "The public he damned!," were as follows: Vanderbilt was being pressed for a state-; ment about reduction of train schedules on his railroad by a reporter who talked incessantly about the public interest Supposedly, Vanderbilt's ire was directed at the reporter, rather than at the public. £ Encychjesdia Brihtnnica
