6 -$iturdiy f Feb. 29,19M Redlands Daily Faets u s hted to find that most Danes _ ; _ except in the remotest farming Denmark favorite country of American tourists By BORCE MORS United Prts* International COPENHAGEN (UPI) — The tiny kingdom of Denmark, producer of famous bacon and beauties, has no raw materials but such prosperity that the political opposition could find no better slogan than "make good times better." And the Danes who inhabit this tight peninsula have humor history and appetites in abundance. Denmark is the land of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet," of Hans Christian Andersen, the famous author of children's fairy tales, and of pianist- comedian Victor Borge. And many of its women have become famous all over the world as models and actresses. Danes have a reputation of taking almost nothing seriously —except eating. Tourists are introduced to such gourmet's delights as restaurants in Co penhagen with menus four feet long. Ever since World War I Den mark has been a favorite coun- ry of American tourists, who swarm here the year round but particularly in the summer. Tourism contributes importantly to the nation's income and accounts for more than 5 per cent of Denmark's foreign exchange. The monetary is the krone, which is valued at a little more than 14 cents, roughly the same as the British shilling. Education it Compulsory communities speak English. It is a required language in Danish elementary schools. Education is compulsory and Den mark is highly literate. The Danes are seafarers and trade keeps them prosperous Denmark's merchant fleet, one of the largest in the world, fol lows the tradition of the Danes adventurous forefathers, the Vikings. Danish ships carry valuable cargoes around.the world. Den mark exports more butter and produces more bacon than any country except the United States. The tiny kingdom, only 22 miles long and 165 miles wide, covers 16,576 square miles, an area twice the size of Massachusetts, but supports a population of 4,650,000 and finds room for 3.5 million cows, 6 million pigs and 25 million fowl. The nation's farms and her lack of raw materials. On a per capita basis, little Denmark is the world's greatest trading nation. World's Oldest Kingdom The Danes are proud that they have the world's oldest kingdom, the world's oldest flag —the red and white "Dannebrog"—and have been under the same royal family for more than 1,000 years. The king is Frederick IX, 64, who succeed ed to the throne on the death of his father. King Christian X, on April 20, 1947. Politically, the King and Parliament jointly share legislative powers. A new constitution, modernizing the one of 1849, was signed June 5, 1963, Denmark's Constitution Day. It made women eligible to succeed to the throne. King Frederick has no sons. The eldest of his three daughters, Princess Margrethe, 23, is in merchant fleet, joined in recent! line to succeed him years by rapid industrialization! The Evangelical Lutheran is Visiting Americans are de-overcame Denmark's complete!the established religion, but there is complete religious tolerance. The 1960 election, in which one party could promise no more than to "make good times better," wiped the Communists out of the Folketing, Denmark's unicameral Parliament, and re newed the pre-war coalition be tween the Social Democrats and radical liberals. Except for during the war years and a short post-war in terval, the two parties jointly have governed Denmark since 1929 and created a model welfare state. Denmark has public assistance, health insurance, disability and old-age pensions, workmen's compensation and unem ployment insurance.

Western Auto NEW YORK (UPI) — Compare Miles Davis of today with the young trumpet player of about 15 years ago who was trying to say something differently. This comparison can be made by listening to two new re leases, "Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool" (Capitol T1974) and "Quiet Nights" (Columbia CS 8906). The Capitol LP is a playback of some of the recordings Davis made as far back as 1948 with John Lewis, Gerry Mulligan, Kai Winding and other pacesetters of modern jazz. Columbia's Miles Davis disc is a 1963 study of his musican in a style that is all his own and almost Wagnerian .in its concept. In 1948 Davis probably was angry with the polyphony of Dixieland and, along with Gil espie and other jazz rebels, was seeking a new note. The result often bordered on the schizoid. Even so the traces of genius could be heard on Davis' long notes. "Quiet Nights," Davis' latest little masterpiece, follows the melodic line of "Sketches of Spain," one of the great Davis performances. The notes are attenuated and although some are startling none is cacophonous. After hearing "Quiet Nights" it is easy to understand why Davis is at the top of all jazz trumpet polls. "Woody Herman: 1964" (Philips PHS 600-118) is another interesting study of a fine mu sician who has remained po- ular through the years. In this selection of nine numbers, Woody doubles in brass with some imaginative work on the alto sax as well as clarinet. Tape Deck — The beautiful Roberta Peters-Alfred Drake recording of "Carousel" now can be heard on a reel adapted for the Revere automatic stereo tape recorder (Command MC 2T 843).

These are the Strauss standards but they become alive in London's Phase 4 system. Automation still far off in state crime file Pacific Coast News Service SACRAMENTO — A long awaited plan for the automation of California's "morgue" of criminal identification records has been dealt a stinging setback by economy-hunting members of the State senate. And in the process, legislators blasted the State Dept. of Justice for admittedly turning a four-year automation study into a fiasco." A Senate finance subcommittee, seeking ways to trim Gov. Brown's S3.66 million budget proposal for 1964-65, voted to chop S184.200 and 10 new employes from requests submitted by Attorney General Stanley Mosk for the Department of Justice. The funds and staff additions were earmarked for establishment of an electronic data processing system within the Department's Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation. The automated records system would provide a highly centralized quick-response "crime library" for statewide law enforcement use. It would be designed to eliminate the need for local police departments to maintain costly duplicate files! and would substantially reduce the personnel and storage space burdens of local record-keeping operations. Municipal and county law en forcement administrators have urged the creation of such a centralized statewide records system for CII for several years. "A Confused Mess" But budget hearings before the Senate Committee this week uncovered what State Senator Eugene McAteer of San Francisco described as "a confused mess" in the conduct of a four- year study preparing for conversion from manual to electronic record operations. State budget analysts and economists, who recommended the automation program in 1960. severely criticized Mosk's office and the Dept. of General Services for causing the state's taxpayers "considerable loss" of time and money by failing to implement a workable system within a shorter period of time. Justice Department and General Services officials were also criticized by budget analysts for finally selecting a data processing system "which is n o t yet on the market and cannot be defended by anyone." McAteer, in moving to deny Mosk's budget request, said, "There is absolutely no question of the need for automating our criminal records system. We should have done it years ago." "Start from Scratch" "However," he added, "t h e people responsible for getting the job done have turr.ed the entire project into a complete fiasco. Our only logical move at this point is to wipe out everything that has been done so far and start over from scratch." Experts predict that a fully- automated system could enable any law enforcement officer in the state to obtain available information on a suspect from the statewide file within 15 seconds.

Gus Lesnevich dies at 49 of heart attack CLIFFSIDE PARK, N. J. (UPI) — Genial Gus Lesnevich, who had the second longest reign as world light heavyweight champion and who believed he would live to 94, died Friday night in a doctor's office from a heart attack at 49. Everyone, particularly wife Inga, was shocked. His buddy, former heavyweight champion Jim Braddock, couldn't believe it when he was informed during bouts at Madison Square Garden, just across the Hudson River in New York. The man who had weathered 76 professional fights, including one for the world heavyweight title, complained of chest pains in the evening. Then the always healthy, happy man — somewhat plump at 220 pounds— said: "It's just indigestion," I guess. Wife Inga drove him to the office of his physician, Dr. John William here in Cliffside Park. Feels Faint There the man who had won the world 175-pound crown in successive fights with Anton Christoforidis and Tami Mauriello in 1941 began to feel faint. Biscuit-faced Gus a Russian- American with light brown hair and blue eyes, said to Inga, "I think I'm going to pass out!" Telling the tragic story today, Mrs. Lesnevich recalled, "I screamed and the doctor came running. They massaged his heart and gave him an injection straight into his heart. "But it didn't do any good. Gus was dead!" Gone was the popular referee and business man, who at the peak of his boxing career in 1947 was named "fighter of the year" by the Boxing Writers Association.
