Munich to Gottingen—Jim Gilliam, 19 year old University of Redlands sophomore, was astonished to discover (wo Redlands travelers in a downtown store in Salzburg. As we walked out with this the bounds of propriety. It began last year, as we pointed out with alarm at the time, in the Capitol building at Sacramento. With the Rumford Fair Housing Act stalled in the Senate, members of CORE moved into the building and camped day and night on the second floor of the Rotunda. Mr. Brown made a polite call on the demonstrators thereby condoning their tactics. The next step was a more-or-Iess mock attempt to block the front door of the Senate so the members could not come out at the close of a daily session. Still no protest from leaders who should have been speaking out. Encouraged by the lack of resistance from officialdom, these demonstrations have moved step at a time into further fields. Now CORE is using the "shop in" against the Lucky supermarkets in San Francisco. In this maneuver a platoon of CORE demonstrators goes into the store, takes shopping baskets, fills them with merchandise from the shelves, goes through the cheeking stand. When it comes time to pay, the demonstrators abandon the shopping carl.s. The filled carts jam up the store and prevent, anyone who is a potential customer from doing his shopping. Fortunately the Negro people are endowed with Christian leaders who have more foresight and guts than the governor. They know- when to draw the line. They are not afraid to speak out. The Rev. George L. Bedford, president of the 40,000-member Baptist Ministers Union, said in San Francisco that "CORE has a right to picket but if it continues to use this tactic, we just can't go along. We will dissolve our working arrangement. We'll have to, because as pastors we teach the Bible: "Be not deceived. God is not mocked. For whatsover man soweth that shall he also reap.' " The seed of disobedience, planted at Sacramento with the governor's tacit blessing, is now being reaped in San Francisco. The cost to the Negro people is disunity — a cost they cannot afford. It's about time the Governor of California showed some bads- bone 1o give the Negro leaders such as the Rev. Mr. Bedford the support they deserve. The quick and the dead Jessica Mitford roasts the undertakers for the alleged high cost of funerals in her best selling book, "The American Way of Death". It is easy, of course, to see the mole in the eye of the other man—the funeral director. Looking into the mirror is more difficult. John D. Black, Stanford University psychologist, conducted such an exercise at the "alumni college" in Los Angeles Sunday. "It seems very clear to me that our willingness to tolerate the excesses of a specialized industry to handle the dead arises out of a desire to have as little to do with them as possible," he said. "Get them out of the house, call as little attention as possible to the presence of death in our midsts, seems to be the prevailing attitude." Friends do not pay attention to the bereaved — not in the personal way that they used to. Funeral attendance is relatively small, even for widely known citizens. People don't expect the widow to wear black for long after the funeral. Why? Dr. Black explains: Modern man "is infatuated with his own power. He is preoccupied with his triumphs, his control over the forces of nature, the burgeoning masses of his knowledge, his conquest of superstition. Our very preoccupation with material progress and scientific achievements helps to obscure the reality of death." It shouldn't though, he believes. In addition to the considerations of religion, Dr. Black notes that the living should let themselves be continually aware of man's mortality. Then, "human life would be greatly enhanced, for we would all be forced to live each day in a way that gives it meaning." into three U.R. co-eds who were strolling down the narrow street a stone's throw from Wolfgang Mozart's birthplace. It looked as though the woods were full of Rcdlanders. but of course with 34 students. 20 girls and 14 boys, csconccd in the Hotel Kupertiliof which houses the U.R. in Salzburg, plus Dr. and Mrs. Henry Dittmar and Dr. and Mrs. Edward Trill, there was a good chance that Redlands would meet Redlands. This was the first weekend for tiic new group in Salzburg after having landed in Rotterdam and spent time in Bonn and Heidelberg on the way to Austria. Fifteen of the students had planned a weekend of skiing at Berchtesgadcn which is about 20 minutes away by car. Unfortunately there w a s trouble with the U.R.'s 43 passenger Mercedes bus. and so the trip had been postponed. But there is lots to do for a newcomer to Salzburg and there will be other chances Ui ski. To make the student* travels in Europe more than sight-seeing adventures. Dr. Dittmar has prepared an excellent "llsix'- bouk and Study Guide" of the places VJ be visited. After Easter they will go to Vienna and l'rague. Later there will be 10 days in Italy and on to France and England before sailing for home the end of May. There are no students with Redlands addresses in this group. Fla^s were flying in Salzburg Feb. 21 because on that day the final reparations had been paid to the Russians. These were not a libel on the Austrian*, but were for German-held assets in Austria deemed to have been forfeited to Russia. A total of t>..~>-hillion shillings had been paid. Among the flags flying was the American flag as it does daily over the Rupertihof. Alv> old Glcry proudly decorates one wall of the dining room. Dr. Dittmar. who is an ordained episcopalian priest, says that he conducted two memorial services for President Kennedy and each time the church was filled. He conducts a service regularly each Sunday at the Anglican Communion. The Old Catholic church broke away from Rome in 1S70 at the first Vatican Council over infallibility of the Pope. The church has a bishop in Austria and Dr. Dittmar conducts the services in English for Americans and English people in Salzburg. Occasionally the services arc in both German and English. He speaks both languages fluently having been born in Germany. Republicans demanding television debates •« YOU G-Orir PLUGGED ALL THE WAY IN?* Teiefips TELEVISION TdP SHOW: — S:uO. Chan. l::.

"While we arc in the vicinity of Africa, why don't we go there on a camera safari?" Mrs. Dittmar asked her husband. "Just like a Rcdlander." he replied. "We are hardly in the vicinity, but why not." So they went on a chartered plane from Zurich for three weeks on the East Coast of Africa, leaving the day the trouble broke out in Zanzibar. They found the trip exciting, the hotels luxurious and the food marvelous. Best of all was the time at the Sinbad hotel on the Indian Ocean in Malindi, Kenya. For Betty Dittmar, Malindi was like childhood days in Hawaii. And just about as opposite from the U.R. in Salzburg as two worlds could be.

The moon is full. The evening stars are Venus and Jupiter. On this day in history: In I860, Abraham Lincoln made his first speech in the East, and spoke oa slavery. In 1D32, scientists were overwhelmed by the announcement that a British scientist had discovered the neutron. In 1939, the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed "sit-down" strikes. A thought for the day—Abraham Lincoln once said: "While the people retain their virtue and vigilance, no administration, by any extreme of wickedness or folly, can very seriously injure the government in the short space of four years."

A good example of this is the throw away beer bottle. Use once and toss into trash can. Throw-away beer bottles also have a sort of built-in temperance guide. When the beer drinker is no longer able to hit the trash can. it's time he switched to coffee. Although few things are more obsolescent than empty beer bottles, I recently beard about a new product that appears to be the next logical step forward. A doctor I know who is medical director of the Pet Milk Co. told me his firm had developed a throw-away baby nurser. Formula, container and nipple all come in one convenient, presterilized, pre - mixed unit Just like the natural nurser. Except for certain obvious differences, such as the shape of the container. You give the nurser to a baby and when the litUe glut­ ton's tummy is full you throw- it away. The nurser, not the baby. American know-how has not yet produced a throw-away baby, although that development may be just around the corner. Perhaps there are some people in the audience who do not see the advantages of throwaway nursers. Such people have never arisen at 3 a.m. to give a baby its bottle. Believe thee me, if there is anything that makes a man long to resign from fatherhood it's mixing a formula, warming a bottle, sterilizing a nipple and all that jazz at 3 a.m. The throw - away nurser is kept on the shelf until used. No refrigeration is necessary, which leaves more room in the refrigerator for throw - away beer botUes. It is served at room temperature, like red wine. Which eliminates two steps in the baby feeding routine. One step is warming the bot- By WILLIAM S. WHITE WASHINGTON — The Republicans have opened from, all levels of their party a rising demand that President Johnosn agree to television debates with their yet unchosen Presidential candidate in the coming campaign. While the President himself remains silent, the response of the Democrats generally is far from eager. Nor is the Democratic Congress showing any mad rush to clear the sort of legislation which opened the way for TV debates in 1960 between John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon. (The substance of this bill was to free the networks of the obligation to offer their facilities to even the most minor and crackpot of self-styled "candidates" once they opened those facilities to the major candidates). Though Mr. Nixon was generally conisdered the net loser in the confrontations four years ago with Mr. Kennedy, his is among the powerful Republican voices now raised for debates this year. Republican insistence and Democratic reluctance are equally understandable. The man on the outside looking in has nothing to lose and possibly much to gain: the man who is in has nothing to gain and possibly much to lose. There is. however, no real parallel between the situation existing in 1964 and the situation of 1960. Then, neither candidate held the Presidency, though Nixon, as Vice-President, did have some duty to defend the Presidency of Dwight Eisenhower. This time, a sitting President, Mr. Johnson, would waive a good deal of the enormous advantage that comes from holding the office by the mere act of agreeing to meet the Republican candidate on television. An incumbent President is, in the nature of things, able to summon up a far larger audience than a mere aspirant for the Presidency could marshal on his own. The President thus would build up his adversary from the word "go." Far more important, an incumbent President actually holds the ultimate national responsibility which an aspirant President is only seeking. A President cannot discuss the grave issues of foreign policy as can a man simply campaigning for that office. When he speaks, even in these partisan circumstances, he unavoidably speaks as head of the United States and his words are read abroad not as campaign oratory but as the solemn declarations of the American government, with all their implict- tions to both friendly and enemy nations. For all these reasons. President Johnson will be wise if he refuses to engage in such debates, even though Congress should approve legislation for them. It will not be an easy choice; a refusal will invite heavy criticism, particularly since the late President Kennedy once committed himself in a press conference to a return engagement with the Republican challenger of 1964. It was not a commitment welcomed by Mr. Kennedy's advisers on world affairs: and there is good reason to think that he himself later regretted his impulse. Whether he did or not, the plain fact is that no President, Democrat or Republican, should ever open himself to this form of exposure and partisan argumentation. This is not because he has a right to be unduly protected, but only because what is involved here is not a man but rather a lofty institution — the Presidency — which belongs to neither party but only to t h e country. This institution should never be compromised in what is. after all. more nearly a piece of political theater than a means of true public enlightenment. It should never be so compromised because vital American interests could so readily be damaged by unwise, unwary or ill-considered statements by a President in the heat of argument with an opponent not required to bear an equivalent responsibility before the world. But does not this sort of thing give the President the edge over his adversary? No; it only retains for him the edge inherent in his possession of the office. It only means that we cannot have two Presidents at a time. (Copyright. 1964, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) THE DOCTOR SAYS Inflamed thyroid can indicate Hasimoto disease By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt Hasimoto's disease is a chronic inflammation of the thyroid. Although inflammation may cause some changes in thyroid function, this is quite different from the myxedema and the goiters which I have already described. It may be due to an infection. But often the cause is unknown. It is most common in middle-aged women and is characterized by a painful swelling of the thyroid. Your doctor may have to take a small piece of the gland (needle biopsy) for microscopic examination in order to make the diagnosis. In the more acute form, cortisone may be given. X-ray treatments also help most victims. In the chronic form, thyroid substance or one of its derivatives is often given if the thyroid function is found to be decreased. Complete cure is the rule. There is no relationship between this disease and cancer of the thyroid which is relatively rare. Q—You recently said that cancer was not hereditary, but my father, my uncle and three of my brothers all died of cancer. How could this happen if cancer is not hereditary? A—There is growing belief that most cancers are caused by as yet unidentified viruses. While cancer does not appear to be contagious in the ordinary sense, there is no reason why several members of the family could not become infected with tie and the other step is cooling the bottle after you have let it get too hot. Both are sheer agony at 3 a.m. Pediatricians now tell us that bottle warming is unnecessary. They tell us an infants gets along just as well on cold bottles. They should try telling that to my infant's grandmother. Old Granny would punch them right in the nose. Another aspect of throw-away nursers is the cost, which runs about S7 a week. This is about $5.40 more than breast feeding costs. The old concept of breast feeding as a free lunch counter turns out to be another economic illusion. Someone has figured out that nursing mothers cat an extra S6.40 worth of food each month. one or more varieties of these viruses. Tuberculosis, another infectious disease, also may afflict several members of a single family. It was also once considered to be inherited but this is no longer true. Q—In a breech delivery, are the baby's feet or its buttocks born first? Why is this more dangerous than a head first delivery? Could a doctor turn the baby and make him come head first? A—The buttocks are usually born first, although sometimes it is a foot or a knee. This type of birth has dangers for both the mother and the child. When the head comes first, there is a gradual dilation of the birth canal to allow the passage of the head, which is the largest part. There is no stimulation of the baby's respiration until the head is born. The rest of the baby follows promptly. When the breech comes first the delivery of the head is difficult because the birth canal has not fully dilated. If the head is not delivered quickly the baby, whose breathing has been stimulated, may suffocate. On the other hand, too rapid a delivery of the aftercoming head may injure the mother. For these reasons a doctor will make every effort to turn the baby so that it will be born head first. Q—I take Amytal every day for nervousness. My doctor says it is habit-forming. Does it also have any bad side effects? A—Amobarbital (Amytal), like all barbituates, is habit- forming. Side effects may include extreme excitement, dizziness, headache, nausea and a skin rash. One Minute Pulpif And every day in the temple and at home they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ. — Acts 5:42. The test of a preacher is that his congregation goes away saying, not, what a lovely sermon, but, I will do something!—St. Francis de Sales.
