Page 14 REDIANDS, CALIFORNIA MARCH 5, 1964 Redlands—Next 5 exits During the 18 months that the Redlands fi-ee- \vay has been operating there has been continuous griping in town about the directional signs. The proper corrections have been under consideration for a long time and now the City Council has made its official recommendation to the California Division of Highways. The assumption of the existing signs, installed as part of the freeway construction contracts, is that "Redlands" means the central business district A further assumption is that since old U. S. 99 (now called Redlands boulevard) goes through the heart of the city, motorists \vill reach "Redlands" if directed onto Redlands boulevard — at Tennessee street if east bound, and in lower Reservoir Canyon if west bound. In the minds of the citizens, however, "Redlands" is not just the core of the city, but the whole inhabited area. They will say that you are in Redlands whether you get off at Tennessee, Orange, University or Ford. With the town creeping westerly by annexations, Alabama also fits into their conception of Redlands geography. Accordingly, the Council wants the "Redlands" label erased from off ramp, ora-head signs. Then ground level signs east and west of towTi would read, "Redlands — Next 5 Exits". Since this sign philosophy is in practice in other cities, such as Riverside, the Division of Highways should have experience by which to judge if the recommendation is as sound as it appears to be. If the State accepts the recommendation, however, this will not be the final word on the subject The location of "Redlands", in relation to the fiwway is not a static condition. For example, the Marigold Farm, between California and Mountain View, has been annexed to Redlands and is officially a part of the city. No i^uest for acknowledgement of this in the fiwway signs is made at this time because no motorist thinks of the ranch as "Redlands". Again, we must point out the urgent need for a road connecting the Wabash avenue bridge over the freeway with Sunset dri\-e, only a short distance away. Just above the bridge, (near Crystal Springs) houses spring up like mushrooms from a wet lawn. Tliere is an urgent traffic line of desire from tliat area to the fi-eeway. When that connection is made — and it should not be long delayed — then the City council will have to seek an amendment for traffic coming down Reservoir Canyon: "Redlands, Next 6 Exits." Yeah, yeah, yeah (Ontario Report) All right, kids, the psychologists and sociologists have been e-xplaining to your pai^nts why you go wild over the Beatles. Now it's your turn. It's time for somebody to explain to you why your parents don't like the Beatles — why your parents use words like "dreadful," "trashy" and "etch" to describe the songs the Beatles sing. Call it the age-old conflict between one generation and the next, and you miss the point Tlie real reason goes deeper. It touches on musical aesthetics. Back in the days when Mom and Dad were growing up, popular songs were different They were lyrical, melodious, sentimental. Let's turn a page in tlie golden book of memory for a few examples. One that hauntingly comes to mind is the Hut Sut Song. It began, "Hut sut rawlson on the rilaraw and a brawla brawla suet." We may not have the spelling quite right since we've lost our Swahili dictionaiy and can't check the words. But as you can see, it's pure poetrj'. Another old favorite was one that went: "DowTi in a meddie in a ittie bittie poo — Fam fee ittie fiddies ana mamma fiddie too." Translated from tlie lingua franca of infancy this was trying to say: "Down in a meadow in a little bitsie pool — Swam thi-ee little fishes and a mamma fish too." As you can see, kids, the good old songs that Mom and Dad grew up listening to had simple, meaningful, heart-warming lyrics. So the next time youi- parents tell you the Beatles' songs are sUly and nonsensical, get them to warble a few lines of the Hut Sut Song. We promise you'll hear no more about it Yeah, yeah, yeah. The Newsreel Johan Gutenberg is generally credited with the invention of movable type, which made general education and typographical errors possible. A histoiy of North America during the Ice Age is being pi*epai-ed. Even without any research we could start it off: "In the fu-st place, it was very cold—" There may be occasions when one picture is worth 10,000 words, but when you hit your thumb with a hammer, one word says it all. John Glenn slips on a rug in his home. That's one safe thing about outer space; something like this couldn't happen in a condition of weightlessness. The trouble these days is that if you save a stamp, hoping it will be more valuable some day the first thing you know it's not even worth, enough to mail a letter with. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Heore (Mr. and Mrs. Williim C. Moore arrived home from Europe lait night. Several more columns about their trip will be published.) By BILL MOORE WEST BERLIN — Listening on the radio to stations broad- castins from Free Germany is forbidden by law in East Germany. Some listeners are sentenced to as much as two years in prison for this "crime." Yet no dictatorship can restrain a determined people from listening to the uncensored news from the other side of The Wall. "By various means we have found that we have a tremendous audience in East Berlin," says Robert H. Lochner, director of RIAS, 2 U. S. government station in West Berlin. The station broadcasts in the German language and carries the message o£ the Free World to East Germany in a similar way to Radio Free Europe's broadcasts to the five satellite countries. With all kinds of psychological warfare. With divisions of American troops. With U. S. air power. With billions of U. S. dollars the Cold War goes on day after day along the German frontier. Goes on year after year after year. Who is winning? It would seem that the West is. But who knows? "If they had free elections in East Germany today," Alfred Buettcnmuller, Pan American executive, says "at least 95 per cent would vote against the Communists. "But of course the Communists operate with a small bloc strategically placed." Yes, free elections as agreed upon at Potsdam, would change the complexion of the world drastically. There is no chance that there will be free elections, however, in the foreseeable future. While spending nearly three weeks in Germany and Austria one cannot help but be impressed by the prosperity and the state of the people. Store windows are fiUed with fine looking merchandise. Prices are the same or less than in the U. S. Jobs arc plentiful. People look happy. Places of entertainment are filled. Streets are jammed with cars in many of the 'cities. Passenger rail trains are well filled with prosperous looking people. Everyone looks well fed. Too well fed. And no wonder •with a conditori offering delectable pastries, a center for coffee breaks in every area. While viewing all of this we noted a piece in the European edition of the New York Herald Tribune. The headline read: "Faced With Riches, Bonn May Revalue the Mark." The article said that the foreign exchange holdings of t b e Bundesbank now have reached S7.654 billion, equal to roughly half ot the total gold reserves of the United States. It is incredible that wc could destroy a nation and help rebuild it to a point where its economy and its money is as strong or stronger than our own in less than two decades. The U. S. sparked the rcburth of Germany and continues to pour money into the country because of the Cold War. To any of the generation who remember Henry Morgenthau, Franklin Roosevelt's treasury secretary, and his plan to keep the Germans down as an agrarian people with no industry, the Germany of 1964 is just about as opposite as anything could be.

When you see this new Germany and you think of a friend who died in the Battle of t h e Bulge. . . when you recall the remark of a former prisoner, a Redlander, who says he would not have survived his captivity but for Red Cross packages. . . Can everything be forgiven. . . everything be forgot. Hardly. But it is like the Berliner said: "Life has to go on." If we once had a mortal foe in Germany, today we have our sfrongest ally.

WASHINGTON (UPI) — All signs indicate that members of Congress are getting ready to vote themselves a $10,000-a-year pay increase. As they go about preparing for this painful ordeal, I would like for them to know that they have my full sympathy and understanding. Next to voting to declare war on somebody, voting themselves a pay raise is probably the most wrenching duty that congressmen are called upon to perform. They approach the task gin gerly, as though waltzing on egg shells. Reluctance is etched in the lines of their faces. Plainly, it is not something they want to do. But sooner or later they must fact the moment of truth. Each member, acting according to the dictates ot liis own conscience, or pocketbook, will have to stand up and be counted — provided they are unable to get the thing through by voice vote. Actually, in my view at least, the pay of a congressman is not as important as his perquisites. Or, to use a more familiar term, the fringe benefits. One of the most scholarly dissertations on congressional perquisites that I have seen was composed by Rep. Otis G. Pike, D-N.y., who was startled to find upon arriving at the Capitol that he was entiUed to a free cuspidor every year. "In addition to the cuspidors, which make nice flowerpots for us effete youngsters who don't chew, we are presented at the start of each Congress with one comb and one hairbrush," Pike reported. "Such are the glorious traditions of our Republic that this presentation is made without regard to the question of whether the member possesses any hair." He also observed that a lawgiver can annually avail him- W.^SmNGTON — An unpleasant odor of police-state methods — of instances of illegal wiretapping and of Federal snoop- ery over the mail of private persons — is arising from the vicinity of the United States Department of Justice. The victims of these episodes have been, of course, either highly unpopular or even "bad" men, in the minds of many. This superficial circumstance, however, is wholly irrelevant to the deep, root fact that this abuse of the Federal inves- figative power is fundamentally alien to a free society, that it is mortally offensive to the Constitutional guarantees of freedom and privacy which it is this same Justice Department's responsibility to shelter rather than attack. Attomey General Robert F. Kennedy, tlie department's head, owes a duty to his position and to the American tradition not simply to put a stop at once to every form of this unfairness. It is his obligation as well to punish those officials involved in it — resolutely and pitilessly. For the Department of Justice has one fimction even higher than that of fighting crime and subversion. This is the lofty duty to protect and defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the people — including the "bad" people — imder it. Though there is no evidence that the Justice Department has actually been running wild in this area, it is all the same a fact that recent examples of extra-legal Federal action against "baddies" are froubling many reasonable men, most notably in the United States Senate. Roy Cohn, the New York lawyer under Federal indictment on perjury and conspiracy charges, complains that his mail is im­ der govemment siureillance — a clear and imdeniable violation of his basic rights as a defendant in a criminal case brought against him by that same gov­ emment Justice Department spokesmen first deny any Federal mail watch on their behalf. Subsequently, they are compelled to admit the truth of Cohn's complaint; they then blame it on the assistant Federal prosecutor. A Federal judge, Archie 0. Dawson, feels obliged publicly to denounce the incident as "shocking" — as indeed it is, in spite of the fact that Cohn in his day was an eager part of the pack of professional accusers of other men who gathered around the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin. Edward Levinson, a Las Vegas, Nev., gambler — albeit a perfectly legal gambler under the laws of that state — says before a Senate committee investigating the Bobby Baker case that Federal authorities "bugged" his telephones. This sort of thing has repeatedly been condemned by the courts of this country as a dirty business. It is disclosed at the s a m • time by United Press International that Nevada members of Congress had gone to President Johnson — himself a life-long antagonist of all forms of illicit Federal snooping — to protest reported Federal wire-tapping in both Las Vegas and Reno, even before the Levinson affair. UPI reports that Sen. Howard Cannon of Nevada had then been assured by a Justice Department official that there would be no Federal wire-tapping in that state. And to add to all this tmpleas- ant and disturbing business, Levinson, in the midst of his appearance before the committee in the Baker case, is handed a subpoena in an income tax investigation by a Federal agent who invades the very Senate without its knowledge or permission to work this blatantly intimidating unfairness to a Senate witness. The point to be stressed in all this is that good intenfions are no substitute for correct Federal procedures. For unless the constitutional rights of all — including, and even particularly including, the Cohns and Levinsons, whatever their real or alleged sms — are kept safe, the rights of none of us can be guaranteed in the end. The understandable and proper desire of Federal agents and prosecutors to enforce the law must not be further confused with the fateful duty of these agents and prosecutors to uphold something else called the Constitution of the United States. (Copyright 1964, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) THE DOCTOR SAYS Care and watchfulness * aid bad back sufferers By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt A slipped disk, a ruptured disk, a prolapsed disk, a herniated disk ail mean the same thing. A disk is a soft cartilage between two vertebrae. It sometimes protrudes beyond its normal bounds and impinges on the spinal nerves. This happens most frequently in the lower back and is the cause of about SO per cent of the complaints that used to be called sciatica. The condition is seen more often in middle-aged housewives and office workers than in well-developed laborers. The immediate cause is not always Teletips TOP SHOW: - 9:00. Chan. 13.

"Those who have been here as long as the chairman of my committee could build a pretty good-sized wall with all the trunks he's entitled to," Pike commented. "I get haircuts for only 75 cents in the House barbershop," he continued. "They are subsidized. The meals in the House cafeteria are at cost, which makes them very reasonable. "When you're a senator, you have a pool to swim in. The House of Representatives hasn't a pool, but they're building a new building to correct this obvious oversight." I suppose that many members of Congress would resent my move to deprive them of these perquisites. In Pike's case, this would be known as Pike's Pique. easily identified, but often it is a sudden twisting of the back that is accompanied by a sharp pain. The victim usually feels the pain most acutely when he gets out of bed in the morning. He is most comfortable lying on his back on the floor or some other unyielding surface. He would rather sit erect on a hard chair than to slouch in an overstuffed chair. Coughing and sneezing agravate the pain. Given these symptoms, your doctor can confirm the diagnosis with an X-ray. For the acute case five to 10 days of bed rest is often all that is needed for a cure. The less the victim uses his back during this time, the better will be the results. Heat from an electric pad helps some victims, but appears to make others worse. Massage and other forms of manipulation may be definitely harmful. AVhen the victim has recovered, it is essential that he remember at all times that his back is not as good as new and that it may act up again if he doesn't refrain from heavy lifting, especially if he attempts to lift with his back rather than his legs. This is always dangerous, and may have been the cause of his frouble in the first place. He must also avoid sudden twisting or bending movements. Exercises to strengthen the muscles of the hips, back and abdomen (but no twisting exercises) will help to prevent a recurrence. Back supports are of little value except as a reminder that the wearer has a trick back. If rest fails to give complete relief or if the victim has repeated attacks, his best course would be to have the protruded portion of the disk removed surgically. Some persons so greatly fear an operation that they would rather put up with the pain. But the operation is not particularly formidable and the results are almost uniformly good.
