Poga 16 REDUNDS, CAUFORNU MARCH 20, 1964 Give cheerfully to American Red Cross Redlands annual funds campaign for the American Red Cross has reached the §10,000 mark toward a goal of §27,000. There is still much to be done and the need for many more gifts to provide the community's share of this worthy cause. Dr. Gilbert Brown, Redlands Campaign chairman, observes that the Red Cross claims that it touches the lives of more Americans —practically every family — than any other nongovernmental agency. It has the facts to prove it. Dui-ing the past year: One of every four Americans was a member of the Red Cross. One of every seven served as an instructor, volunteer or blood donor. One of every eight received direct service or formal instruction from the Red Cross. One of every three U.S. servicemen's families received Red Cross service. Despite the donated time. Red Cross operations cost money — §99,200,000 to be e.\act. It came, and must continue to come, from the free gifts of all the people. Dollars go marching on One of the things that gives government fiscal planners gi-ay hairs is the snowball effect of long-term programs. The spending congressmen do 1 i v e s after them; their budget slashes oft lie interred with their re-election hopes. Congress could adjourn indefinitely and billions would still flow from the Treasury for such continuing programs as agricultural subsidies, highways, aid to dependent children, urban renewal and so on and on. This kind of snowball is a-building in the Defense Department, despite President Johnson's cost-cutting program. Insider's Newsletter points out that retired servicemen currently number 400,000 and draw §1.2 billion a year in pensions — more than the combined budgets of the Departments of Labor, Justice and State. By 1970, due mostly to the superannuation of men who joined up during World War II, the totals wiil be 700,000 men and §2 billion a year. When old soldiers die their widows may continue to draw pensions for years more. Amazingly, pensions are still being paid to a handful of survivors of Civil War veterans. The price of freedom is indeed eternal. Consumer's power "A steadily mounting number of consumers are simply dissatisfied with retail product packaging." The words are those of Mrs. Esther Peterson, special assistant to the President for consumer affairs. She cites such things as odd fractional weights, weights printed in small type and deceptiwly large packages that contain more air than product ]\Irs. Peterson recently urged industry to voluntarily set up standards on different products, simplify labeling and packaging and eliminate dishonest practices. Others go further and urge more stringent federal regulations. Manufacturers generally oppose tills, claiming the consumer is adequately protected by present laws, which at the same time allow industry enough latitude to exercise ingenuity in presenting new products and new packages to the public. The subject arouses passion on both sides, and the facts are often lost in the scuffle. ImaginatiTC packaging does help sell products and does add to the pleasure and efficiency of shopping. Yet any housewife could cite abuses. As in everything else, a few bad apples cast suspicion on the whole lot While the lawinakers investigate and cogitate and others agitate, the consimier need not stand by helplessly. The purse in his hand is a powerful weapon. In a negative way, be can refuse tO' purchase any product he feels is dec^tively packaged. More positively, he can inform the store manager, or better yet, write the company concerned. If the manufacturer is reputable, as most are, this ought to result in more action than a dozen letters to Congress. The Newsreel The man at the ne.vt desk says he isn't fussy about his neighbors, but he doesn't think he'd care to live downstairs under a shot-putter or a flamenco dancer. A sjTidicated brain says that, as a result of the New Hampshire primaiy, Scranton is the logical Republican choice. In politics it matters not if you won or lost but whether you didn't play the game at all. Underdog politicians may take heart from Cassias Clay, who lost all the polls but won the fight Women are reminded that not only is raising children a full-time job but it is tmlikely to be eliminated by automation. Congressman Sludgepump is in favor of keeping ethics on a high plane because there isn 't mudi chance of his running into them up there. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and BiB Meora By FRANK MOORE As you fly domn the West Coast of Mexico there are var- ted patterns and places on the land. Near HermosiUo and Ciudad Obregon the dams have created a water supply which is the making of vast agricultural areas. They remind you of Nebraska, the roads surveyed on long east-west, north-south lines, the fields in rectangles of green and brown, and with widely scattered ranch houses. Farther north it is desert. You might think you were seeing the cattle ranges and ranches of New Mexico and Arizona. • To the South it becomes tropical, with palm trees and lagoons along the immediate coast. There are small farm towns and big ones, like HermosiUo There are thriving ports, like Manzanillo where you can sec the big oil tanks by the refinery and several large ships in the harbor. There is incredible Acapulco with its huge and elegant hotels overlooking the ocean... a playground of the very rich. . . the international rich. But Mexico to the air travel­ ler — if he has never been far .south of the border before — is likely to be the first town where be stays. .Although I had been in Jlcxico and Central America several different times, starting in 1927, Mrs. Moore had not and she found first impressions to be strong ones. Founded in 1532 by the Spaniards, San Bias was originally an important city. Indeed, it was the first Spanish port on the Pacific. It was from San Bias that Father Junipero Scrra sailed to found the now famous Cahfomia Missions. It was lhe.e that the foundry for making cannon balls managed to cast bells for first the churches of o u r state. But the original fort and the cathedral are in crumbling ruin atop the hill — a striking sight as you wheel over them for a landing. Now the village stands on the low ground by the sea, largely a resort for Mexican people and for Americans and Canadians who want to make their money go a long way. Leaving our airplane we boarded a 1937 Chevrolet. It is a tribute to General Motors that their product can stand the ordeal of time, fast Mexican drivers, and the dirt and cobblestone roads. Apparently considering anyone a fool who doesn't jump for his life at the sight of a moving car the driver, tj-pically, raced ahead. There were but fieeting glimpses. . . about a dozen women sitting on the ground in firont of a house, playing bingo. . . the tidy housekeeper sweeping at the front door of her crude home ... the plaza, almost deserted ... the proprietor of the open- front restaurant setting up for the evening trade. As the taxi sped along the cobblestone road, we passed through a grove of coconut trees. Presently we rounded a bend and straight ahead was a band of horses. The contest was joined. Our driver honked madly. The horses didn't budge. They had won. He braked to a quick stop. When the taxi was almost upon them they consented to move. In San Bias the hotel proved to be tj-pical of the tropical coast where patronage is mostly from the local people. Toward the sea, on the grotmd floor, there are no glass windows. 'Who would want to shut out the refreshing breeze? The floors are of tile — cool, easy to clean. BougainviUias, with their electric - bright flowers, climb on the verandahs. Toward the beach, the walk leads between lush tropical palms. There are birds sounds, more Sign Here!" ^^^^^^ Redlands Yesterdays TELEVISION FIVE YEARS AGO Temperatures — Highest 84, lowest 48.

Like many of the Mexican villages on the coast, San Bias hopes to become another Mazat- lan, to attract the lucrative tourist trade from the U.S.A. They have a small beginning but you are most likely to find people who are studying the book, "Mexico on Five Dollars a Day".

WDson The 1964 congressional elections will flush a fine covey of left of center U.S. senators into scattergun range of conservative voters. Conservatives could bag more than their limit of such senators next November if they prepared for the himt. They probably won't be prepared even though many of the sweethearts of ADA will be seeking re-election to the Senate. ADA, of course, is Americans for Democratic Action. It also is the depository for the conscience of the Democratic party. More practically, it is the heir to FDR's New Deal ideology. A Polifical Powerhevs* Moreover, AD.A is a 'political powerhouse without being a political party. It maneuvers and reconnoiters on the outskirts of the Democratic party organization. AD.A turns back strays, repels conservative raiders and enforces the unwritten law that as the Republican party moves toward the Democrats, the Democrats must move further and further to the left. ADA mamtains itself in positions of power within the executive department and in Congress. So it is that most Senate Democrats and some Republicans who are up this year are ADAers under the skin. The most inviting and practical invitation to Repbulican conservatives to beat back toward a solid political position in the United States is offered in the numerous states where ADA- oriented senators seek re-lc- Uon. ADA itslf compiles the list of those so oriented, the latest being a rundown on the voting record of the 1963 session of Congress. ADA selected 17 key Votes as a basis for detarmining the political positions of senators. A senator who voted the ADA way on all 17 was graded 100. A senator who voted against ADA on an 17 was goose-egged. ADA Gradts Listed Here are some of the senators up for re-election this year with their ADA grades: Goldwater, R-Ariz., 0; Engle, D-Calif., 88; Dodd. D-Conn.. 76; Fong, R-Hawaii, 65; Hartke, D- Ind., 82; Jfustae, D-Maine., W; Kennedy, D-Mass., 94; McCarthy, D-Minn., 94; Symington, D- Mo., 76; Mansfield, D-Mont, 76; V/illiams, D-N.J., 94; Keating, R-N.Y., 88; Burdick, D-N.D., 88; Young, DOhio. 76; Pastore, DR. 1., 88; Gore, D-Tenn., 80; Yarborough, D-Tex., 76; Moss, D-Utah. 94; Jackson, D-Wash., 65; Proxmire, D-Wis., 71. Sen. Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., also up this year, shares a goose egg with Goldwater. Other senators who voted against ADA on all occasions were: Stennis, D-Miss.; Curtis. R-Neb.; Mechem. R-N.M.; Thurmond, D-S.C.; Tower, R-Tcx.; Bennett, R-Utah, and Simpson, R-Wyo. Senators who always voted the ADA way were all Democrats; Neuberger, Ore.; Clark, Pa., and Nelson, Wis. Thirty-three Sedate seats will be up for grabs in this year's election, 24 Democratic and 9 Republican. Eighteen of the Democratic seats are outside the South where the Democratic nomination still is close to a guarantee of election. DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Using unsterilized razor can cause 'Ember's Itch' By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt Q—What is barber's itch and what measures can be taken to overcome it? A—It is an infection of the roots of the hairs in the bearded area. It is caused by the common staphylococcus and is usually transmitted from person to person by a razor that has not been properly sterilized. It may also result from shaving too closely, especially if acne, impetigo or any other skin infection is present. The condition may become chronic. It is then hard to eliminate without hospitalization. The usual treatment is am- LIGHTER SIDE Leave it alone By DICK WEST BERRY'S "Leoky hert, hitnd ... when I make a speech tiiey're called CUB cards—not idiot cardiV WASHINGTON (UPI)-As I was leafing through a volume of congressional budget hearings the other day, I ran across a question that simply made me "go ape," as they say m Somaliland. Members of a House appropriations subcommittee were quizzing officials of the U.S. Customs Bureau about narcotics smuggling, including the illegal traffic in marihuana. And one of the congressmen wanted to know whether smoking marihuana causes cancer. That is an intrigumg inquiry to be sure. But a bit like asking whether butting your head against a wall causes dandruff. Customs Commissioner Philip Nicholas Jr. replied that he did not know whether the health hazards reported to be associated with tobacco smoking ap plied to marihuana. "Perhaps it should be looked into," Nicholas said. Friends, you would be hard pressed to find anyone more dedicated than I to the increase of knowledge and enlightment. But there are times, I believe, when, iterance is the best pol-^ icy. And this, I suspect, is one of those, times. . In the first place, the fact that marihuana smoking is illegal might make it rather diffi-, cult to gather the necessary statistical data. The marihuana smokers 1 have known were hardly the types who would come forth and volunteer information about their habits. And if you caught them at it, they wouldn't admit it. Assume, however, that such a survey were possible and that it established a definite link between marihuana smoking and cancer. Would this cause anyone to give up marihuana? I doubt it. The marihuana smokers I have known were hardly the types who would worry about a thing like that. In fact, they didn't seem to worry much about anything. Which is one of the reasons why they smoked marihuana. "riiis brings us to a third consideration. What would happen if it were established that marihuana smoking does not cause cancer? Would that not tempt many tobacco smokers. to switch to marihuana? I imagine that marihuana peddlers would seek to encourage the trend by bring out filter tip reefers, menthol-flavored reefers, king-size reefers and [reefers with a hint of mint. "Don't be half safe," they would croon. "Be really safe with reefers. Come aH the way up to the mystic magic of marihuana." If marihuana smuggling is a problem now, think what it would be like under those conditions. It might be better for the customs bureau to leave bad enough alone. Teletips TOP SHOW: — 7:30, Chan. 4.

Q—Is there any new treatment for acne rosacea? I am 29 and have had this skin trouble for several years. I have tried all kinds of treatments to no avail. Is it possible to get rid of it? A—Unlike teen-age acne, this form of acne starts after maturity is reached. It is usually limited to the kin of the face, especially the nose, forehead and chin. It may be due to a liver disturbance, a deficiency of vitamin B or hypersensitivity to sunlight It will not adversely affect your general health. There is no specific cure but you should avoid anything that would aggravate it such as spiced foods, alcohol, coffee and tea. You should shampoo Hvice a week with one of the shampoos that controls dandruff. Avoid greasy cosmetics. Make sure you are gettins enough vitamin B, the vitamin that is found in meat and dairy products. Early in the course of the disease, astringent lotions containing sulfur may help. Having the affected area frozen by your doctor could give relief. But when, as m your case, the disease has been present for several years, these measures are of limited value.
