Pag* 16 REDIANDS, CAlfORNU MARCH 17, 1964 Another airplane bomb jokester found guilty Making a joke about a bomb aboard an airliner is again found to be a crime. CecD R. Gibson, an engineer for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration \vas found guilty Monday in a San Francisco federal court of this offense. After Gibson told the airlines stewardess an acquaintance was carrying a bomb in his suitcase, she reported it to the captain. The flight was delayed for an hour and 45 minutes. Airlines have been plagued with bomb reports, but convictions of "jokesters" have reduced the problem somewhat. Bomb tipsters have yet to tell an airline the correct information. No bombs have been found. Yet two planes have gone to their doom because of bombs planted or set off on them. The risk is always present. An association of civilian users of airlines proposes that one of the most sure-fire ways to curb the bomb menace, is to develop some kind of detection device for inspecting baggage. In this day of electronic marvel this should be possible. Jokes about bombs on planes are as dangerous as standing up in a theater and shouting fire. Strong action against these jokestei-s every time one of them is hailed into court is just Avhat they deserve. There is a time and a place for eveiything. Automation puzzle The social dislocations caused by the automation revolution are going to get a lot worse before they get better. According to Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz, machines are taking the place of about 4,000 workers every 24 hours. Though the effects are severest in the unskilled worker category, they are by no means confined to it Neither are the effects confined to any one age bracket, which is one reason why there can be no all-embracing solution to the problem. There wjll have to be a number of "solutions" and the field is wide open for suggestions. Wirtz, himself, looking at the near side of the age spectrum, recenUy came out in favor of raising the compulsory school age limit to IS and for providing two extra years of free public education beyond high school. This, he said, would have the immediate effect of reducing by a couple million the number of job occupants or job seekers. More im- portantiy, its long-range effect would be the up- gi-ading of the work skills and employment potentials of these youths. A more general "solution" has been recommended by Edwin F. Shelley, director of the National Council on the Aging. Under his plan of "earned educational leave," workers would be withdrawn from the labor force every year and sent back to school, while still drawing their pay. K unemployment equaled, say, 5 per cent of the labor force, 5 per cent of the employed workers would take their leave each year. If unemployment were 10 per cent, then 10 per cent of those working would be removed from the rolls. "This," says Shelley, "would leave job openings across the board for the unemployed to fill." The ne.\t yeai-, the workers returning from leave supposedly would fill the void left by another crop of furloughed workers. Obviously, this "solution" would be ideal if all jobs were the same and the only problem was that of shifting the troops. Unfortunately, it is not that simple. Both "solutions" rely on the magic power of education and the fact that much unemployment is of the so-called "structural" type. That is, there are jobs available, but unemployed workers either don't possess the skills necessary to fill them, or the available jobs are in one location and the unemployed in another. At present, education is undoubtedly the best answer to the challenge of automation. What will happen when machines begin decimating the ranl« of management and brain workers, no one can say. We can only try to solve those ills we have, rather than look ahead to others we know not of. Another big adventure Joan Merriam Smith today takes off on the first leg of her ai'ound-the-world solo flight following the exact route Amelia Earhart attempted in 1937. If the 27 year old blonde succeeds she will become the first woman to fly around the world solo. The flight will show the capabilities of light planes and of the improvements in air navigation aids since Amelia Earhart was lost on her flight. Beyond the scientific values, if any, of this trip is the show of courage upon the part of Joan Smith. The glamour of record airplane flights has been worn thin long since, but the combination of a lone girl in a light plane over a big ocean should stir the heart of every lover of ad\'enture. Good luck, Joan. The Newsreel Shotgun Schultz says that nothing irritates him like a healthy, happy millionaire. Whatever other honors may come his way, surely Bobby Baker is a leading contender for Moonlighter of the Year. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore Taking a look at the "new Redlands" in the vicinity of the new Mariposa school, we found ourselves bewildered. What used to be good rabbit and quail hunting country not so many years ago, is now completely unrecognizable. Bulldozers have carved out pads, shifted soil around until the terrain is entirely new. Stand on one of these lot sites and the view in every direction is stupendous. Of course the view won't always be that way. Houses will be built, trees will grow, the whole area will change. The most significant change in "new Redlands" is the manner in which the land has been graded. Formerly houses were built onto a hill. Now they are built into the hill. Improved earth moving machinery and the economics of house-building dictated the change. Even in a town built in the hills as is the south side of Redlands, until recently there have been few houses that front on a street and appear to be one story houses until viewed from the back side where they are two or more stories below. This is true of some houses on Sunset drive and on some of tlie developments that adjoin. Grading equipment at work on the Mariposa school site is creating great areas of flat ground that cast a completely new look to the land. Yet this will cause no amazement to most Redlanders because it is land that they have not had occasion to be on or to know. Mariposa school will be so new in every respect that whether you have lived here a year or for decades it won't be part of anything old — not even the site. Tlus is unlike any other school site ail of which have been in familiar territory. The Sunset drive area still needs additional arterials to downtown Redlands. At present Sunset itself carries the traffic. Palo Alto will be cut through before too long and this will provide access from Mariposa to Sunset. Links to the freeway offer the most hope for this growing area. How to tell what generation you are in — which do you say: 1. Some days you can't make a dime. 2. Some days you can't make a nickle. Shows what mflation has done to small money. The new generation says "can't make a dime." In their short lifetimes — under 30 — the nickle has just about gone the way of the buffalo that is its hallmark. THE ALMANAC Today is Tuesday, March 17, the 77th day of 1964 mih 289 to follow. The moon is approachmg its first quarter. The evening stars are Venus and Jupiter. On this day in history: In 1897. Jim Corbett lost bis heavyweight boxing title to Bob Fitzsimmons at Carson City, Nevada. In 1912, Mrs. Luther Gulick of Maine, announced the formation of a new organization for young gu-Is to be called "the Camp Fire Girls." In 1942, General Douglas MacArtbur arrived in Australia to become supreme commander in the Southwest Pacific Theater of Operations. In 1953, the last price controls set up in the U.S. during World War II were discarded. Today is the feast of St. Patrick.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Federal Trade Commission has proposed a new rule that may shake Madison Avenue to its very foundations, assuming that Madison Avenue has any foundations to shake. In essence, the rule says that you can't sell or advertise American cosmetics or toilet articles with foreign names un less you clearly identify them as products of the U.S.A. In other words, to use a hypothetical example, if you are putting out a U.S. perfume called "Place Pigalle," you would have to print "made in Brooklyn" in large type on the front label. The commission says it has reason to believe that foreign words on cosmetics tend to deceive consumers by leading, them to believe some of the domestic stuff is imported. It will hold a hearing next month to permit manufacturers advertising agencies and other interested parties to air their views on the proposed rule. But I can't wait. I have just returned from a drug stoje where I inspected the cosmetics counter and I feel I should warn the commission right now that it may be letting itself in for a lot of grief. Certain products win, of course, present no difficulty. Take pMfumes bearing such names as 'Toujours Moi" and "Bon Voyage," to choose a couple of the less sensuous brands. These are clearly foreign words. Both perfumes are compounded or blended in America. Therefore, there is no question that the rule would apply to them. But what about such products as "Fabulash" (an eye shadow) and "Etema 27" (a skin cream)? Neither of those names comes from any language that I am familiar with. Presumably, the commission would have to judge them by WASHINGTON — Washington, which always stands m the eye of the hurricane m the international storms that blow endlessly about the world, is now prepared for an annual crisis of a most homely kind. Fast approaching is the time of the descent of the tourists. Beyond doubt, it is a happy thing for the merchants, the sight-seeing guides, the hotel- keepers and the like. For in this season a city so accustomed to seeing vast sums shoveled out for great enterprises at home and abroad undergoes the otherwise novel experience of seeing dollars coming in rather than going out. Of course, what comes in is by way of private enterprise, whereas what goes out is, as the saying goes, "within the public sector of the economy." This means that it all goes on the naUonal tax biU. Still, the time of the tourists is a good deal 1 ik e Christmas in the springtime for the local people. Lost for most of each year in total obscurity among the storied bigwigs who run the government, the locals for a brief hour make the town their own, put their own stamp upon it. They also make it one vast, hospitable motel-inn-filling-station-campground for hordes of American males in flowered Hawaian shirts and hordes of American females in regrettably bulging shorts carrying tens of thousands of cameras forever at the alert Washmgton is then en fete for out-of-towners; the country has moved in here to see its national capitaL H, however the local free-enterprisers beam with honest happiness, as well they might, other characters here do not regard this as the finest of all seasons. For to many the descent of the tourists bring more pain than pleasure. The policemen — and Washington preplexingly has three sets of them variously denominated as Metropolitan, Park and Capitol policemen — see it as a grim time, indeed. They must stmggle with earnestly pleasure-bent and determinedly culture-bent throngs which grow larger year by year and will at length make this city from April to August look like the coast of England, in the sprinf of 1944 when the great marshaling for the D-Day channel crossing seemed to l>e pressing that island down into the sea. Traffic on the streets is fouled up far more than normally by hundreds of school buses from here, there and yonder. These bring countless thousands of high-school youngsters here to see the sights of history- and the scenes of our long past — though the youngsters occupy themselves- instead in ceaseless demands'to be taken without delay to the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. They want to see the G-men. Movement in the Capitol, by those there in the necessary errands of their business, becomes slow and perilous. For the visitors, adults as well as ' children, invaribly fill the corridors from echoing wall to echoing wall. And, resolved both to get their money's worth and to sustain their constitutional rights as free Americans, they will yield not an inch of walking space to those who are there simply because they must be. And, lo the poor members of Congress! It is this season which brings upon them not mere visitations from home but human inundations of constituents who demand to look personally upon their Senator or Representative with the same unnervingly cool curiosity they show in gazing at such inanimate objects in the White House as are opened to the public view. Almost one is moved to the imkind observation that if the American tourist abroad is thought to be unduly aggressive and demanding, he is the very model of tact and patience as against the American tourist here m Washington. Indeed, in a very giddiness of uncontrollable heresy that is probably un-American, the temptation is to put it thus: Washington, though its summers are perhaps a bit too hot at times, is very beautiful in the spring. It would be almost incredibly so — but for all those new people. They do sort of tend to get in the way of the view. (Copyright, 1964, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.)

To me, they sound like science fiction. Which, I suppose, would be considered foreign. Another potential problem is a line of lipsticks called "Sidewalk Cafes." We have some sidewalk cafes in America, but they generally have a foreign connotation- How will the commission handle that? There is also a perfume called "Chantilly." WWch could mean either (Hiantilly, France, or Chantilly, Virginia. For that matter, if foreign names on cosmetics are deceptive, how about such things as Bermuda shorts, Dutch ovens and Irish potatoes? If Uiis rule is adopted, I fear the commission may be opening another Pandora's box. Which, by the way, didn't contain Greek deodorant. blood pressure, a reduction of body weight by dieting and maintaining a normal weight may be an important part of the treatment. Regardless of weight, a low-sodium (salt poor) diet should be followed. In order to be effective, such a diet should be supervised by a physician who is familiar with its details. (}—Since childhood I have never been able to distinguish different smells. What could cause this? A—It is unusual for a person to lack a sense of smell from birth but it could occur if you have a developmental defect in the olfactory nerve. Other causes would include inability to breathe freely through your nose because of some form of chronic obstmction.
