Page 10 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MARCH 7. 1964 America —the land that rewards crooks with power In America the cultural climate makes it difficult to raise a child on the maxim that honesty is the best policy. There is too much graphic evidence in the news to the contrary. Take the Teamsters Union. Here is an organization that grew to ti*e- mendous size and power under the leadership of Dave Beck. And we didn't say "Honest" Dave Beck, for he will never be so recorded in American history. On the contraiy, he was tliieving from his own people. He went to jail. Having a crook for its national president didn't ruin or reform the Teamsters. Instead, they got Jimmy Hoffa. Now he, along with two of his henchmen has been convicted in the Federal Court in Chattanooga on two counts of tampering with jurors in an eai'Her case that had ended in one of his spectacular acquittals. Hoffa, of course, proclaims his own \Trtue from the housetops and insists that he is the \-ictim of pei-secution at the hands of Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. Oh yeah? In the last three years the Justice Department has run up this score against the Team- stei-s boss and 175 of his cohorts in the union. On chai-ges that have included misuse of union funds, e-xtortion, mail fraud, acceptance of payoffs from employei-s, perjury, embezzlement and income tax evasion, the department has won 95 convictions. There have been eight acquittals and 14 dismissals. Still pending are 59 cases. If honesty was the guiding policy in our land, the Teamsters would be disenfranchised and dissolved. But no, on the contrary this union has reached a new apex of power wdth the fii-st nationwide collective bargaining con- ti-act Nvith the trucking industry. This is a gi-eat country — it must be — to be strong enough to withstand the strains of the crazy system we operate under. Having proved a frightful case of lawlessness against leaders of a union, we then pei-mit it to ac- quu-e potential control of a major lifeline of the U. S. economy. Frankly, we don't get it Ee-yow-0000 One of the present puzzlements in the publishing j)rofession is the great comeback of Tai-zan. Indeed, not only the ape-man but all of Edgar Rice Bun'oughs' creations — John Carter of Mai-s, Carson of Venus — are enjoying new popularity. By this summer 70 Burroughs titles will be in print His heirs have released five unpublished manuscripts. A full-hour Tai-zan program is being prepared for television. If any author submitted these stories to a publisher today, he would be more than laughed at The publisher would shed teai-s of sadness at the author's naivete and ineptitude. Why, then, the revival of Tarzan when "dai'kest Africa" is merely another crisis fac- toiy on the front pages of our ne%vspapers? Why the revi\'aJ of the other chai-actei-s when we now know tliat Venus is too hot to support life and that Mars certainly does not hold the teeming civilizations tlie Buntiughs imagination peopled it with? Partly it is explained as middle-aged men wishing to recapture their childhoods by rereading the books they read then, or buying them for their childi^en to read. In other words, personal nostalgia. But could there be such a tiling as supremacy nostalgia? Could it be that people will al- w-ays be suckers for stories of man over nature, man over man, man over animal or man over plant-man — especially in this day of thinking machines. Foim 1040, ti-affic jams and group therapy? "Tai-zan Triumphant" — "Tai-zan, the In- %incible" — "Tarzan, the Terrible" — "Tai-- zan. the Untamed" — and so on. Why, that could be me!

Twice upon arrival we have said we would never return. Twice when it came time lo leave, it has been with heavy heart. Italy is hard to explain. Like love. When you are caressed by the Italian charm, you succumb. You vow you are going to resist the Italians, because at first they are not easy to understand. Then all of a sudden they have you and like travelers throughout the ages you are a goner. You will come back to Italy. The language barrier for an American seems impossible. You keep trjing though, because you know that just about every Italian you meet is trying to be nice to you, frjing lo be helpful — in his own way. The Italian who speaks English doesn't speak the English an American is accustomed to. He may have the words in right sequence, but his inflections and manner are foreign. He seems abrupt and unkindly when really he is just the opposite. Communication is the world's greatest problem and for the traveler his greatest obstacle. We got into Italy the hard way and left the hard way. When we arrived over Milan in a Lufthansa Constellation from Frankfurt, Germany the fog was so thick that the pilot took us to Zurich, Switzerland. After an hour of talking to about everybody in the Zurich airport we finally got aboard a plane for Rome in order to go by train to Florence which has no airport. In the big Rome railroad station we found it almost impossible to hurdle the language barrier. The Italians were trying to help, but we weren't getting through to them. With the aid of various and sundry passersby we finally were able to buy a ticket to Florence, but then we didn't understand the baggage checking arrangements on an Italian fast train. We were so puzzled that we were about to surrender, when a handsome Italian gentlemen who spoke a little English came to our rescue. He walked the length of the train with us and our porter to show us exactly what to do. Then he took us to our car and helped us find a seat. The conductor, after while, asked for the supplementary fare which is charged on fast trains and for the scat charge, lie was the most smiling, pleasant man, but he spoke absolu- ely no English. Our friend explained. We paid the small o.\- tra fare and it was easy to understand the graciousncss of the conductor his gestures were so meaningful. Best game of charades we have been in for years. In Florence time after lime we heard these words "did you like. . ." The Italians try to please. What more can a traveler ask? When you travel without a planned itinerary, you frequently don't think far enough ahead and get yourself into predicaments that could be avoided. We delayed our decision to leave Italy, and as a result ended up with tickets for two crack trains "II Settebello" and the "Trans Europ Express". It was loo late to reserve a seat — they sell reser\'cd seats — so we went hoping for the best. This worked fine on the "II ScttebcUo" which makes the 150 miles from Florence to Milan in three hours including stops. There were enough seats and we were well taken care of on this supcr-duper train.

At Milan we had 15 minutes to catch the "Trans European." Ten minutes were consumed retrieving our bags. Then we dashed to the waiting train. They wouldn't let us on. All scats had been rcser\'cd, t h e man indicated by showing us his scat plan. He spoke no English. Our porter tried to help. We were frantic, but getting no place. A passerby translated for us. but to no avail. Wc sprinted past eight cars to the front of the train. No they wouldn't let us aboard. Then just as the train was leaving came the miracle, climb on the man beckoned. A photo finish if ever we saw one. At this point we were out of Itahan liras, but as usual were able to handle the transaction for seats. in dollar bills, the world's most accepted currency. In the soft light of dusk we arrived at Lake Como. Then in the twilight we saw the Alps. The confusion was over. We were aboard a train that would be hard to improve on. In four hours we would be in Zurich. We sat back to rest and contemplate. Why did we leave Italy? A strange way to feel, perhaps, but that is the way it was.

Before the bill is completed it may also mcludc beef as a sop to the cattle states. Democrats and Republicans arc cooperating happily to see how many vested state interests can be crammed into the end product. That is par for the course, as is the fact that the issues raised have oddly failed to attract the campaign orators now discussing virtually every other subject on the national stage. The economic anarchy called farm policy has long since defied the analytical powers of the occasional recorder of its workings. But a dedicated spec- iaUst who was in at the farm- subsidy takeoff, and expects to be here for the crash landing, says simply that the present specimen is all bad, a mere piling of subsidy on subsidy. He adds that nobody really wants to vote for such a bill, including Chairman Allen J. Ellender of the Senate Agriculture Committee. He recalls that only a few months ago Agriculture Secretary Orville Freeman and President Kennedy said there would be no such bill. But President Kennedy was then basking in the adulation of the great-city stales where elections are won or lost. He was not disposed to cultivate the wheat states where people are fewer and those fewer apt to vote Republican. Toward the South he had adopted more or less a let-the-chips-fall attitude. President Johnson has no such assurances that he is invincible in the densely populated areas which are the firm base of his party. A Texan, he has a built-in advantage in the South which he does not propose to lose for any stakes less than the civU rights bDl he has lo produce. The new farm bill enables him to bow to his fellow-Southerners en masse and in the Congress. Actually it is more direct help to members of Congress who seek re-election this fall than to the President. So far Democratic Presidents have been able successfully to curb the resentment of urban liberals against being asked to vote for farm favors unpopular in their districts for the benefit of Midwest and South- em conservatives. The urban liberals point out that what they get in return from a coalition of Midwest Republicans and Southern Democrats is the civil rights filibuster. President Johnson has a compelling claim on their sympathy at this point. He is in a sense a caretaker President, facing a challenge of unknown dimensions at the polls in eight months. If and when he achieves his own mandate from the voters, the situation will, of course, be different. The record shows that any hope of reciprocal civil rights help by Southerners, no matter what cotton, peanut, tobacco and similar programs are adopted, is pure illusion. They may accord it to Johnson, but the odds say no. Republicans also have an argument for winning what they can for their old heartland. It furnishes the principal Congressional power base for their party now, and they would be hard put without it. Even at the cost of helping Johnson to some degree, they feel they must defend their jobs. Most of them feel it is hazardous lo help the Southerners on civil rights, but their party is growing in the South. The cotton bill is a safe complement there. ASSIGNMENT: West Krufch finds place of natural beaufy By Neil Morgan THE ALMANAC Toflay is Saturday, March 7, the 67th day of 1964 with 293 to follow. The moon is spproaching its new phase. The evening stars are Venus and Jupiter. Those bom today include American horticulturist Luther Burbank, in 1849. On this day. in history: In 1876. Alexander Graham Bell received a patent for his invention of the telephone. In 1936, Adolf HiUer ordered his troops to march into the Rhineland, breaking the Treaty of Versailles. In 1945, the U.S. First Army crossed'the Rhine at Remagen, south of Cologne, Germany. In 1962, U.S; steel companies agreed lo resume talks with the |Union following an appeal by President Kennedy. A thought for the day—American Sen. Daniel Webster once said: "Liberty exists in proportion to wholesome restraint." The lion ant, known in the United States as the doodlebug, is said to be carnivorous, according lo the Encyclopaedia Britannica. TUCSON — Joseph Wood Knitch, an uneasy Messiah of cultural affairs in this mountainous desert, thinks Tucson is still the best place for him to live. "But I don't know," he sighs, "how much longer it will continue to be. The changes I feared are taking place at an accelerated pace." Krutch met me at the door of his simple, comfortable adobe house on East Grant road. It was late in the afternoon, and the shadows were creeping up the jagged Santa Catalina Mountains that rise outside his living room window. He wore a flannel shirt and sweater and slacks. Over his left eye a dark lens blocked light from an eye troubled with cataracts. He had been scanning an advance issue of Saturday Review, in which appeared one of a series of papers he is wTiting for that magazine. Scattered about on his desk and nearby tables were manuscripts and correspondence involving other of Krutch's current interests: essays to be published in book form next fall by Sloanc, an NBC documentary on Grand Canyon, articles for American Scholar, and research involving Baja California, an area which appeals lo Krutch as a naturalist and humanist. Krutch is a New Yorker by temperament, an inmate of the intellectual ghetto, who did not move West for the usual reasons. "I didn't come West for its future, for its industry, its growth, its opportunity," he said. "I came for three reasons: lo get away from New York and crowds, to get air I could breathe, and for the natural beauty of the desert and its wild life. "I'm not the kind of person that the chamber of commerce is interested in at all." Krutch, in fact, was persuaded to speak at the Tucson Rotary Club several years ago after moving to Tucson. It was assumed hopefully that he would give a testimonial lo the lure of Tucson for writers. "I told them that it was indeed a good place for a writer, but that I liked it less every year because it was getting bigger and dirtier and more like everywhere else. In spite of the fact that their folders talked a good deal about the charm of the Old West, they seemed to be trying lo remove it as rapidly as possible. I proposed that they replace the 'Help "Ricson Grow' slogan with 'Keep Tucson Small.' The ne.xt day the newspapers said that most people assumed that Mr. Krutch had his tongue in his cheek. I didn't at aU." But as Tucson has grown, Kmtch has found his escape more frequently in Baja Cafi- fomia, and especially in the ma jestic wilderness of Cape San Lucas, at its southern tip. He is anxious to encourage geologic and anthropologic research in Baja California, and looks forward to accompanying scientific expeditions for the opportunity to write his reactions. Several such expeditions are now under consideration. "What interests me about Baja is that right here below our U.S. border we have almost a perfect antithesis to our way of life," he said. "We're advanced technologically; they are very retarded in that way. We are worried about how to consume enough; they are on an economy of dreadful scarcity. Everything has to be used until it's worn out, and then it has to be used for something else, until it's wom out from that too. Everything goes down step by step until it disappears into the earth. We are rich; they are poor. "Nobody who visits Baja California would think that way ol life is best. Anybody who has the idea he would like to return to the primitive life would be disillusioned in Baja California. "But nobody seems lo ask if there is no choice between poverty and complete absence of technology — and abundance so great that it demands waste, a technology so complicated that it takes precedence over everything else. "Is it really true that you have to make a choice between going on and getting bigger, or growing disastrously small? That if we don't try lo be as rich as possible, that we will soon be poor?" Krutch is disturbed, in Tucson and all over the West, by the pell-mell rush, "if it is not accompanied by some controlling impulse, by some novelty of purpose," he said, "then actually all you will have is simply another East on the West Coast. Some sense of value and ultimate purpose must be developed. The future of the West can't be realized simply by importing into the West those ideals and standards of civilization from which the in-migrants have run away," he said. "The West did, and sUU does, offer a wonderful opportunity for starting a new kind of life. The real questions are, 'Is that opportunity going to be muffed? WiU the possibUity be realized?' Won't it be interesting to sea the answers?" On the local level, Krutch feels that the West might not- be over-run with triteness "if the city fathers and property " owners didn't cooperate quite so . enthusiastically. It would be good if we could make our land attractive to the kind of people to whom it offers something special, instead of lo those who might just as well live somewhere else.
