Page 20 REDUNDS, CALIFORNIA MARCH n, 1964 Lodge bandwagon starts, but N.H. not decisive Republican voters in New Hampshire appeared to be grasping for straws when they rejected the two candidates who campaigned in the primary and voted for the absent Henrj' Cabot Lodge. Both Barry Goldwater and Nelson Rockefeller had strong support among leading party members in New Hampshire, but the voters had independent ideas. They bounced away from both candidates. Voting for Lodge was a way of saying "no" to Goldwater and Rockefeller. Where Lodge stands on the issues no one knows. In his role as Ambassador to South Viet Nam he is in no position to speak. New Hampshire knows him as a Nav Englander, as Nixon's 1960 running mate and as a strong figure as ambassador to the U.N. in the Eisenhower administration. That was knowledge enough. Their vote was away from the issues propounded by Goldwater and Rockefeller and to a pe:-sonality untainted by debate. The New Hampshire results show the quandary the Grand Old Party finds itself in four months fi-om convention time. The Lodge bandwagon will now begin to move, but New Hampshire with less votes than San Bernardino county, is far from a decisive testing ground. Neither Goldwater, Rockefeller or Nixon wei-e killed off in New Hampshire. The showdown will take place in California next June 2. Unless a last minute msh is put on to get a Lodge delegation in the field, Goldwater and Rockefeller will slug it out to a fi.iish in our own state. Fred Workmon Fred Workman in his 12 yeai's as City Manager contributed much to Redlands. In a period of explosive growth the city ^\•as confi'ont- ed by controversial and difficult problems. Some of these generated so much heat that the City Council members were in and out of office so fast that it was difficult to maintain a continuity of government By his calm, reasoned way of approaching problems, Mr. Workman retained the confidence of the people of his town. He played a vital role in helping rcstore stability in government so important to the growth of a city. A city manager is the target of all who have complaints about the city. He must have an appreciation for people, be willing to hear them out, but in the end he cannot always satisfy their demands. He is restricted by the policies of the City Council who are his bosses. He is restricted by the economics of a city that is not tax rich. Mr. Workman working within these limits, did the job the best way he could. It satisfied a majority of the citizenrj'. One of Mr. Workman's greatest accomplishments was the upgrading of the capital equipment of the city. Large sums have been spent on the water department to improve the system. This could not be done in a year or in a series of years, but over the decade marked gains have been made. Likewise in equipment for the park department, in disposal, in street cleaning good equipment has been obtained. During his re^me the demands for space to house the expanding city government were provided, first in the City Hall and more recently by the building of Safety Hall, a feat accomplished without a bond issue. The Police depai'tment which went through as many upheavals as the City Council itself, settled down imder the capable hands of Chief Bowen, directed and backed up by Manager Workman. Added together over the years the accomplishments under IMr. Workman's manager­ ship are great He felt Redlands w-anted a strong city government and good municipal facilities. He did what one smcere man in a key position could do to give the ta.xpayers value received. Redlands is a better place in which to live because of what Fred Workman did for it The Newsreel Silence used to be regarded as a sign of strength, but when they go before a congi-es- sional committee some pretty weak characters show they can clam up, too. Word that the cost of living hasn't gone down any will come as a surprise only to those who haven't been living. The roads to wealth for a young man are so varied that a father hardly knows whether it is more profitable to teach his son to throw a cui-ve or twang a guitar. Much as we would like to worry about Zanzibar, we do our nightly counting of crises in alphabetical order and fall asleep before we get to it A retired acquaintance says he is spending his sunset years living in an apartment and strolling around the old neighborhood telling people what they are doing wrong in their gardens. Men are more interested in a woman's mind than in her appearance, according to interviews i^ven out by prominent actors and other liars. Scanning vacation possibilities, the office grouch says it's going to be pretty tough finding any place this summer that's not too close to some kind of cultural festi\^ With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore When j'ou fly from West Berlin to Frankfurt, the pilot announces as you near Frankfurt: "For the next three minutes we will be passing through the corridor, please fasten your seat belts." An ominous message in view of the shooting down of U.S. planes. Fortunately three minutes is not a long time. But long enough. Jazz, Coca Cola, and the National Cash Register are America's leading contributions to culture of Uie OH World we found on our recent travels. Turn on the radio in any European city and it sounds just like home. Same old crash and clatter. The foreign language commercials are great — you can mentally tune them out easier than the ones at home. Coca Cola is everywhere. Competes well with the huge steins of beer so common in Germany. The business world would be lost without NCR. In Europe, however, many of the models have hand cranks instead of being electrically operated. Cheaper that way. Even the smallest cafe will have an NCR. Amazing because so much of the business that takes place is added up in what seems to be a haphazard manner then recorded in such a busincssUke way by cash register. Those wonderful raih-oad stations that serve the fine rail networks throughout Europe for the most part have plaques giving credit to U.S. foreign aid. Our dollars built a lot of tlie new Europe. Most Americans wonder whether long term value in friendship will result. Hard to tell. Hard to understand dealmgs between nations. Overheard in a Zurich, Switzerland, cafe: "America all looks the same — except for San Francisco. Los Angeles is a dreary place. No parks. Why don't you Americans have more parks?" Zither playing is just about a lost art, but the little old man in Kottlcr's restaurant in West Berlin makes you wonder if there really isn't a future for zither playing. His repertoire is endless. At his feet he has a half dozen brief cases stuffed with sheet music. You name it. He's got it. If folk singers and guitar players can be so successful, why not a good zither player? Getting foreign students into homes of tlic local people is a problem in Redlands and also for our students abroad. A Swiss friend says she saw that there were American students in her city who would like to meet foreigners. She wrote a letter saying that her own children were grown up, she spoke fair English, would be glad to have American students come to her home, spend the day and see how the Swiss live. She never got a reply. Too bad. In Wurzburg, Germany, the Army sponsors an American- German women's club. The Americans go, sit on one side and the Germans on the other. There is little mixing up. They go through the motions, but fail to achieve the purpose. Possibly this is because the military service is a self-contained community of its own no matter where it is. Should American students abroad such as the University of Redlands at Salzburg have their own professors and no contact with a foreign university — or, should they attend a foreign school such as the University of California is doing at Gottingen? How many American students are willing to take a crash language course so that they can attend a foreign university? Exchange of students offers 'Let's See Your Driver's License!'

The Republican who can win the California primary decisively probably can be nominated for President. It is almost as simple as that, but not quite. Fifteen states and the District of Columbia authorize presidential primaries. AU are booby trapped. The least of them can be deadly. The presidential primary system more often eliminates contestants than it designates winners. Sometimes a primary does a bit of both. The beginning of the end of Sen. Robert A. Taft's ^Vhite House dream came in New Hampshire's March, 1952, presidential primary. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, a reluctant and uncertain candidate, won all 14 New Hampshire delegates to the Republican National Convention. Ike took 46,000 popular votes to Taft's 35,000. Wisconsin's presidential primary in April, 1944, blasted Wendell L. Willkie entirely out of the contest for a Republican p r e s i dential re-nomination. Willkie was a bad last in a field of four in Wisconsin after a good New Hampshire beginning. He had been the 1940 Republican nominee. Dewey Late Winner Harold E. Stassen made a good start toward the 1948 Republican presidential nomination, a prize ballyhooed as practically assuring election to the presidency. The Republicans could have lost in 1948 only by conducting an unbelievably inept and superficial campaign, which they finally did. Stassen showed well in New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. "Thomas E. Dewey knocked Stassen clear out of the contest in the Oregon presidential primary. Dewey went on to lose the election to Harry S. Truman. The primary system of indicating a preference for individuals seeking national and local office was established in 1903 by the late Robert M. Lafollette Sr., then governor of Wisconsin. He caused the Wisconsin Legislature to enact the first state-wide direct primary law. The primary system responded to popular demand for elimination of the existing evils of nomination by party conventions or, as strildngly phrased by the late Raymond Clapper, nomination in a smoke- filled room. Abolish Presidential Primaries Such nominations frequently were corrupUy obtained and often picked not the best but the least desirable nommee. Most states now nominate for state and local office by primaries. But only 15 states and the District of Columbia provide for presidential primaries. The public enjoys the primaries. They are colorful and interesting. But they add nothing to the efficiency of the American system of government. Politicians and public alike probably would be belter served if presidential primaries were abolished. THE DOCTOR SAYS Look at it in any light: women are stronger sex By Dr. Wayne G. Brandsfadt In any population there are always a few more boy babies bom than girl babies. But the death rate for boy babies is also a little higher than that for girls. As children grow, girls equal boys in muscular development until the age of puberty. That is why many girls come to be known as tomboys in their early years. With puberty, the boys in general show greatly increased muscular development and the girls settle down to a quieter way of life. But which sex has the greater staying power? Any statistician will tell you that the number of wives who are widowed by the time they reach age 45 is about twice the number of husbands widowed by that age. There are several reasons for this. Not only is the death rate from diseases of the heart and blood vessels higher in men than in women — it is also increasing at a greater rate. Death from peptic ulcers show Teletips LIGHTER SIDE Land of fantasy By DICK WEST ".,. And being a thinking man in the Viet Cong, I'd rather switch than fight!" WASHINGTON (UPI) - As has often been noted, the state ments and comments from baseball spring training camps have a lot of the airiness and charm of pure fantasy. Tiiis is particularly true of the statements and comments eraergmg from the training camp of the Washington Sena tors, where there is talk once again of rising from the American League cellar. My reading of the sports pages recently started me to wondering what it would be like if this annual outbreak of vernal euphoria were to spread to other fields of endeavor. I think it would produce a spate of news items somewhat like these: SirisQti, Fla.: . Herbie Grump, veteran General Manager of the Tidewater Cotter Pin Corp., predicted today that his company will overtake General Motors this year as the nation's biggest business. "It is true that our net earnings were less than $1,000 in 1963," Grump told reporters, "But I see no reason why we can't raise that to around $15 billion in 1964. "During the winter we acquired a new assistant vice president who should strengthen our production department. And our accounting department already is as accurate as any in the National Association of Manufacturers. "Last year we got off to a slow start because of mechanical breakdowns. This year, if the water cooler doesn't spring another leak, we'll make people forget about General Motors." St. Peteriborg, Fl«.: .Pfc. Rancid Thmp, veteran U. S. Army infantrymen, ended his holdout today and signed up for another hitch. It is believed his pay and allowances will total about S98 a month, making him one of the TOP SHOW: — 7:30, Chan. 2.

Negro married couple clash over their opposing views on integration. highest paid Pfc's on active duty. "Reports that I insisted on a new messkit are a bunch of bunk," Thrup said.. Thrup predicted he will have a good year on the rifle range. He credits platoon Sgt Boscoe McCadence with improving his shootmg. "McCadence showed me where the trigger was," Thrup explained. Orlando, Fla.: .C. Amory Famsworth - Keathkit, veteran state department foreign service officer, expressed delight today upon learning that he had been traded to the Agriculture Department. Agriculture gave up two grade 12 entomologists and a cotton parity statistician to obtain Famsworth - Keathkit. In recent years, "Famy" has been used only sparingly at state. He probably will see more action at agriculture which has been weak in diplomacy. "This is the best thing that has happened to me since the Bay of Pigs," Famsworth - Keathkit exclaimed. t a similar frend. Both categories of disease are aggravated by nervous tension. Women give vent to their emotions "more freely than men and thus have less tendency to get high blood pressure or a heart attack. Lung cancer is another disease that has shown a growing preference for men. Air pollution may play a part in causing this disease but, whereas the exposure to polluted air is about the same for men and women, men smoke more cigarettes, inhale more deeply and smoke more of each cigarette before discarding it. Scientists are searching for other reasons for the increasing death rate in men at the prime of lUe. Many men now do jobs with the aid of machmery that used to be done with then: muscles. If they do not counteract this lessened muscular activity by taking up golf or some other sport they will become early victims of hardening of the arteries. Add to this the higher death rate from men from venereal disease, alcoholism, homicide and accidents and the constant lowering of the death rate from childburth and women's diseases. It becomes evident that the modem wife will have' to co-operate with her husband's physician in keepmg her spouse alive if she doesn't relish the idea of widowhood. She can do this by encouraging him to have a physical checkup every year, by providing a peaceful home atmosphere and by seeing that he gets proper rest and nourishment. THE ALMANAC Today is Wednesday, March II, the 71st day of 1964 with 295 to follow. The moon is approaching its new phase. The evening stars are Venus and Jupiter. On this day in history: In 1888, a great blizzard began in New York City and snow fell for four straight days. In 1930, WiUiam Howard Taft became the first President of the United States to be buried in the National - Cemetery at Arlington, Va. In 1941, President Tloosevelt signed the hotly debated lend- lease bill and immediately ordered goods sent to Britam and Greece. In 1959, the Senate approved Hawaii as the 50th state. A thought for the day —British statesman Sir Winston Churchill once said: I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma." One Minute Pulpit Welcome one another, therefore, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. — Romans 15:7. We must not only affirm the brotherhood of man; we must live it. — Bishop Henry Codman Potter.
