season brotherhood and peace on earth were demonstrated in Yreka" This was the consensus of a majority of more than 2- 000 holiday travelers who were stranded in the 5400 population community by the 14-hour closure of Interstate 5 on Thursday "Yreka will always be more than just a name on the road map to us" Mr and Mrs Bill Braze Iton of Portland Ore commented to their hosts after spending the night in a private home The closure of Interstate 5 actually began about 9 an Thursday when two truck-trailer rigs jackknifed near Black Butte Summit between Weed and Mount Shasta Second Closing Wreckers were called and the trucks removed from the road by about 9:45 am However the highway patrol closed the road again about 10 am when high winds snow and fog reduced visibility to zero The blizzard conditions continued throughout the day dumping 14 inches of new snow in the Mount Shasta area and maintaining the closure until nearly midnight All southbound traffic was stopped at Yreka and northbound traffic was held at Redding The stalled traffic began I 4k to block Yreka streets shortly after noon and by 4 pm the downtown area was so crowded that no parking space was available for last-minute Christmas shoppers At 4 pm the county's Nye '- fare department opened up the National Guard Armory on the fair ground and issued a call by radio for local residents with available space to house stranded motorists especially those with small children and elderly couples 'Wonderful' Response 'It was wonderful We are more than pleased with the response we received from local citizens in answer to our call" director W M van Over of the welfare department commented lie reported that it is impossible to determine the number of stranded motorists who crowded the community "By 4 pm all motels and available rooms in the area were contpletely filled We opened up the armory and some 250 people remained there throughout the closure while another 252 adults and 102 children were sent from the armory to private homes" Van Over said "Three local churches opened their doors provided heat coffee cocoa and other food and refreshments Each church probably served at least 100 people

effort standpoint and from the courteous and helpful attitude of the visitors We were offered more homes than we could possibly use" Van Over said ''I hope that people who offered to house someone were not disappointed and will respond again if another emergency arises" TI Changing Concept DAVIS — Starting with the spring quarter students majoring in economics at the University of California at

Warren Atherton will observe his 80th birthday Tuesday but he will not be alone Hundreds of friends and admirers including former Chief Justice of the United States Earl Warren will be on hand to help him celebrate About 300 persons are expected to attend the affair which will begin at 7 pm at the San Joaquin County Fair ground Charter and Airport Ways Proceeds from the dinner will help pay for the new wing at the Pioneer Museum here 1944 Mission Atherton is credited with getting Congress to enact the GI Bill of Rights back in 1944 At the time he had gone to Washington DC as national commander of the American Legion He found there were more than 200 bills pending in Congress to aid in the rehabilitation of returning veterans Each of the bills dealt with an individual subject Some overlapped and in some cases there were gaps Atherton said he surveyed the situation and then recommended to the American Legion an omnibus bill that would cover everything from veteran's education to his buying a home Many advised against it on the grounds that every committee with an interest in one of the other 200 bills could demand a hearing on Atherton's proposal and in all likelihood the bill would die of old age before enactment the Stocktonian was told Did Not Give Up But Atherton said he did not give up despite such pessimism Instead he decided that the legion should seek passage of an omnibus bill covering all basic needs of returning veterans In January 1944 the bill popularly referred to as the GI Bill of Rights was introduced in Congress The first fight was to get permission of both houses of Congress to have the bill heard by only one committee in each house That fight ac cording to Atherton was won "The veteran's committees of both houses held extensive hearings before which I appeared together with financial and rehabilitation experts" he said (ts 1 ttic I Gt:fa t eC te' -vkaif CD Class Slates Study In Prison DR GLENN T SEABORG of the Atomic Energy Commission says that SMUD's Rancho Seco nuclear electrical generation plant will be safe from radiation Ills statement in a recent article may be true However if the nuclear plant will not contribute con According to engineers at SlIUD the radiation level at the Rancho Seco nuclear plant site is now 115 millirems per year And that count they say is about the state-wide average per year However they point out at higher elevations the amount of radiation increases For example at Placerville — about 1700 feet above sea level — the milli-rem count is about 125 per year Compare that with the dosage of radiation from one chest Xray which is about equal to an entire year's exposure at sea level The SMUD plant is expected to add no more than 1 millirem per year to the count at the site itself THERE ARE SOME
