Pag« 16 REDUNDS, CALIFORNIA MARCH 2, 1964 Houses built to real market demand will find buyers Is Redlands becoming residentially overbuilt? In the continuing discussion of this question, Pi-esident Robert Kalil of Redlands Federal has given the Realty Board a useful answer. Essentially, lio makes not one appraisal, but two different ones by di\iding the question of •what is meant by "overbuilt". He concedes that there are some sick tracts and they will remain so for some time. They were developed because of easy money policies of some Los Angeles area financing instl- • tutions, and not, he says, because of true demand for houses of these particular kinds in the places they were built. In short, Redlands is not a red hot market where a developer can sell anylhing he happens to build. This is a fau- wai-ning because it is not good for the real estate business, the community, or the people who are employed in the construction industries to have houses built for which there is only a feeble market. The other half of Mr. Kahl's commentary is a prediction that there will be a continuing market demand for single family residences tliat are built to meet what the buyers really want. The elements are size, location, quality, style and price. As we have seen during pre- \-ious ups and downs of the building cycle one tract finds few buyere while another one within a few blocks may even succeed in pre- selling most of its houses. The great art in the building game is to anticipate pi^ecisely what the buyers will want at the time a tract is ready to put on the market Some highly experienced local builders have, at times, found themselves stuck with houses which they had anticipated would sell briskly. Again, the same builder will turn around and hit the bullseye of the tai-get on the next tiy. All that the community can really expect of a builder is that he will make a genuine attempt to appraise the wants of potential customers and provide housing accordingly. In Mr. Kahl's commentary on apartment building there was also a useful obsei-vation. He said that the city is still lacking in luxuiy projects. Again, his remarks basically get back to matters of definition. By "luxury" he means an apartment having some 1,300 square feet, with two baths, and expensive appointments throughout. If the building was of more than one floor, there would be an elevator. Redlandei's are not accustomed to the idea that any apartments might be built here to Beverly Hills standai'ds. It is human to entertain the notion that what we have not seen in the past we won't see in the futui-e. Yet, Redlands was predominately a city of single family residences until very recently. The mass building of apartments started here only IS months ago. The new trend is not yet developed enough to indicate all things to come in the next five years. Mr. Kahl makes the community aware of one possibility that could materialize if Redlands is able to make "quality" the city motto. Charge of the Blue Jeans l^Iany still think that Britain's Beatles were sent over here to get even for the Re\-olution. While this is possible as a "bonus" effect, it now becomes clear that the Beatle infestation is part of an audacious master plan to break "the East-West deadlock and restore the Pax Brltannica of the good old days. For news comes tliat another group of English minstrels with the "Mersey sound" — the Swinging Blue Jeans — are preparing to decamp to Moscow. The Swinging Blue Jeans have actually displaced the Beatles on the British hit parade. The Mei-sey sound, or Birmingham beat, is the greatest adxfance in weaponry since tlie invention of ner\-e gas. The Blue Jeans intend to allow the Russians no quarter; they will perform with balalaikas in place of tlieir cus- tomarj' guitars. Some may protest from the standpoint of humaneness, but Geneva Convention and all that aside, the temporan' demoralization of the American and Russian populations is small price to pay for an end, or at least a new twist, to the cold war. The Newsreel A s\-ndicated brain says that if fewer American families had two cars could have better schools. But a lot of families have two children so they need hro cars for them to di-ive to school. Pastel clothes for men are urged on the grounds that it is the male bird which has the most gorgeous plumage. "The only thing I envy the birds," says Shotgun Schultz, "is their ability to sit on a barbed wire fence."

With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bid Moore By BILL MOORE WEST BERLLV - An E a s I German Communist guard peered througlj binoculars from a window in his post overlooking The Wall. He watched intenlly as a crowd gathered on the Free side where a French soldier climbed atop a French Jeep in an attempt to see o%cr the wall. The binoculars pointed our way. We hoped we were a satisfactory image of the Free World because he seemed so sinister, so real an image of the terror of the Police Slate. Four French soldiers, apparently on a sightseeing tour of The Wall, rode in two jeeps. They had parked right ne.xt to The Wall and to satisfy their curiosity the tallest man stood on (op of the car. They seemed to be taunting the guards on the other side. A few steps from where the jeeps parked is one of many monuments to Germans killed in attempts to cross (o freedom. .\11 you have read. .Ml you know about The Wall. .All .vou have imagined docs not prepare you for the jolt that come-s from .standing within touching distance of (his ugly monument lo ineptness in high places. The Wall is frightening. That it could exist in the so-called civihzcd world of the T»ventieth Century is beyond belief. Yet there it is. Barbed wire. Broken glass. Heavily armed guards. At night bright lights like those on the walls of a penitentiary. There it is — a wall built by Communists to keep a people enslaved. To prevent a people from escaping to freedom. In the bright sun of a clear winter day The Wall is as awesome a sight as we have ever seen. Its message pierces t h c heart. It tells so clearly t h e failures of those responsible for the policies that made The Wall possible. Stand in front of The Wall where with your own eyes you can sec the gun of the Red .soldier. Then there is no sophistry that excuses the intellectual snob who scorns those who dare to suspect Communism. Communists or friends of Communists. The whole diabolical plot is bared before your eyes. You feci overwhelmed by frustration, by futility. You say to yourself when Communists arc allowed to speak on American campuses they should stand before an enlarged photograph of The Wall. Preferably one showing a German boy, his body riddled by Communist buUets, snagged in the barbed wire as he tried desperately to reach the Free Worid. Let not the Communist speak in the cloak of American decen- c.v, but in the (rue color of (he terror of The Wall. There are those who explain The Wall away as a "good thing" because it personifies (he captivily of the Communist world. It is hard to see anything good about it here in Berlin. AU you have to do is look across and you know that a city of more than a million people arc slaves to the Police State. Basically they are human beings no different from the happy, industrious free Germans in West Berlin. There is nothing good in a wall that forces them to such a life. Berlin is a place where the ghosts of the past mingle with the Big Brothers of today. It is a place too where Free Men have built one of the great cities of the world. If East Berlin is horrible and depressing, not so the bright lights of West Berlin. This may be the showcase for the world to see Freedom and Communism side by side. But is the showcase really being De Gaulle may enter onother crisis area By WILLIAM S. WHITE YOO ^Ol^ACiTOTRY TO FLOAT THAT HERE?'

WASHINGTON (UPD-There was snow in the air and slush on the ground when the Nation al Committee to Abolish March convened for its annual meeting. Here is a transcript of the proceedings: Chiairman: The meeting will come to order, .'^t our last meeting, I appointed a delegation headed by the vice chairman to confer with leaders of the United Stamp-Oul February League, We will cow hear its report. Vice Chairman: The delegation met twice with the Anti- February group during 1963 but was imable to reach any sort of merger agreement. Chairman: What was the difficulty? Vice Chau-man: They kept in sisting that February is a more disagreeable and depressing month than March. They agreed it might be a good idea for us to work together, but only if we concentrated on getting rid of February first Chairman: Did you show them our public opinion poll which indicated that 64 per cent of the people regard March as the most unpleasant month? Vice Chairm-an: Yes, Mr. Chairman. Chairman: What was their reaction? Vice Chairman: They showed us a public opmion poll which indicated that 69 per cent of the people regard February as the most horrendous month. Chairman: Did you point out to them that March is the only thing standing in the way of April? That March lasts longer than February and seems much longer than it actually is? Vice Chairman: We did. We also pouted out that there are no holidays to help make March bearable. Chairman: Did you tell them that if they helped us do away with March it would make it easier to eliminate February later? Vice Chairman: We used every argument in the book, but they are dedicated, calendar-carrying February haters. They fear that if they recognize the defects of March it will weaken their case against FelJ- ruary. Chairmkn: How about trying to form an alliance with the Federation of Down-with-January Societies? Vice Chairman: That's a WASHINGTO.V — There is fear in Washington that President Charles de GauUe is about to enter yet another theater of world crisis brandishing the non - power of France to the grave harm of Western Allied interests. Interviews given to French journalists by President Makarios of Cj-pnis are taking the line that de Gaulle would be the ideal mediator of the desperately dangerous quarrel involving C.vpnis' rival Greek and Turkish populations. It is a quarrel that is tearing that island apart and threatening to tear apart the Western alliance as well — if not to start a full-scale war. In a rational world this sort of suggestion would be freated as the sheer nonsense it ought to be, but the present world has been made anything but rational by Charles de GauUe. France's total incapacity to enforce any sensible solution in Cyprus — where the United States and Britain are feverishly trying to prevent a civil war that might readily lead to warfare bctiveen Greece and Turkey — is abundantly clear. But it is an incapacity no less plain than is France's total inability to enforce any solution in Southeast Asia that would not in fact simply turn the arc over to the Chinese Communists to whom de Gaulle has now attached himself. Powerlessness, in a word, has not deterred General de Gaulle from interfering in Southeast Asia with his clamors for "neutralization." It therefore follows, in the nightmarish but unavoidable non - logic of today, that powerlessness need not deter him from interfering in Cyprus. Already, he has publicly criticized the Cyprus constitution, the attempted nullification of which by Makarios is precisely the cause of the trouble there. Already, there are signs that de Gaulle needs only a formal "invitation" from Makarios to go galloping into the Cyprus affair with alt the destructive irresponsibility ah-eady, shown in his meddling in Southeast Asia. The basic position in Cyprus is this: Makarios, with Soviet encouragement, is attempting to desfroy the rights of the minor­ ity Turkish Cypriots which Britain, Greece and Turkey — all of whom arc our allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization — have formally imder- written. He also wants to recant on a 1960 treaty which, in establishing the independence of Cyprus, allowed Britain, Greece and Turkey to send in troops if necessary to preserve the peace between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots. He wants no Western troops for peace-keeping but rather United Nations troops — a maneuver which would bring Russia squarely into Cyprus along the vital southern flank of NATO. Nikita Khnishchev of the Soviet Union, acting on cue, has already "warned" against a Western "occupation" of Cyprus, notwithstandmg that t h e West has a manifest treaty right and a manifest duty to prevent the civil war toward which Makarios is heading. How General de Gaulle could persuade himself that all this is either his business or his responsibility, since France had nothing to do with setting up Cyprus and has not the slightest intention to risk a single soldier to keep it from chaos, is one of the mysteries of our time. • That he may well so persuade " himself, however, is seen here as distinctly possible. For the non - power of de Gaulle France is accompanied these days by the non - logic of de Gaulle France. This is an explosive mixture for the responsible Western powers, as has already been seen in Southeast Asia, where de Gaulle's "neutralization" moves are seriously hampering the policy of United States military aid to anti-Communist South Viet Nam in its brutal struggle with Communist invaders Srom the north. Anything hi did in Cyprus could have only one foreseeable result: A further unnecessary foul-up of Western mterests and a consequent further gain to international communism, which, despite all the talk of a great Russian - Chinese "break", is currently giving the West a bad time all the way from Saigon in Vict Nam to, Havana in Cuba.

Brandstadt Q--Do you think it is good for a child to nurse from the bottle until he is nearly 5? Should a 5-year-oId eat fresh fruits, celery, raw carrots, nuts and popcorn? A—.A 5-year-old who prefers a bottle to a cup may have an emotional problem that should be investigated. Often, t h e cause is jealousy of a new baby. The child wants to do the things the new baby docs and thereby Set the mother's attention. Or the child may have a morbid fear of growing up. Whatever the cause, steps should be taken through the family doctor or a child guidance clinic to remedy the situation. A 5-year-o!d child should certainly be allowed to eat ail the foods mentioned if he chews them thoroughly. Q—My 8-year-old frequently complains o f momentarily smelling strange smells. What could cause this? A—This may be a phenomenon of memory. Just as sight and sound may flash across our minds, so also may certain smcUs, both pleasant and unpleasant. On the other hand, some persons are momentarily aware of strange smcUs at the onset of an attack of epilepsy. In a very mild form of epUepsy, the smell may be the only evidence of the attack. If your doctor thinks there is a possibiUty of epilepsy, he might suggest an electroencephalogram which should remove any guesswork. Q —My 5-year-old has allergies. He has not been vaccinated against smallpox and our doctor says he must not be vac- cmated because he is allergic to something in the vaccine. What will happen when he starts school? A—Since most schools require vaccination against smallpox, he should be vaccinated. But ha should take one of the antihistaminic drugs at the time of vaccination and for a few da.vs thereafter. If your doctor will not agree with this, he may arrange to have your son excused from this requirement but sooner or later, especially if he enters military service, he wiD have to be vaccinated. Furthermore, he if ever leaves the' country, he will not be able to re-enter without evidence of a smallpox vaccination performed •within the preceding three years. Q—Is Vitamin B-12 good for allergic rhinitis? A—Vitamin B-12 is of value in the freatment of pernicious anemia and it is necessary for the growth of children. It has been used in the treatment of many diseases but excepting anemia, without apparent benefit. Teletips TOP SHOW: — 9:30, Chan. 4. Hollywood and the Stars.
