Oregon interested in vice presidency By Doris Fleeson SALEM, Ore. — Oregon is un usually interested in the V i c e- Presidency this year. Republicans have an offering for the post in Gov. Mark Hat field, whose availability is imperfectly masked by a drive to make him permanent chairman of the convention. Hatfield, i moderate, is a somewhat younger version of the 1960 Democratic chairman, the then Florida Governor, LeRoy Collins, whose velvet-glove technique amid tension was much admired. Democrats who kept Robert Kennedy out of the state in 1960 have not changed their minds about him but, paradoxically, regard brother Edward, the Senator, as a good friend of the West. Many of them openly express a preference for Sen. Robert Humphrey of Minnesota for Vice President. All stress that they can detect no important dissatisfaction with President Johnson. They see no reason, therefore, why he can't pick his own man, and they expect him to do so. A Humph rey-for-President write-in is not planned except as a backfire if one for Robert Kennedy begins. Their complaint against the new Administration is that the Texan President does not under stand the West and should get some campaign helpers who do. They had established, they say, a good working relationship •with President Kennedy but now feel neglected. Some of this was imparted to Senator Kennedy, who campaigned last week in Montana, the Dakotas and Minnesota for colleagues who are up this fall, Sens. Mike Mansfield, Quentin Burdick, George McGovem and Eugene McCarthy. Kennedyi bobs up in California occasionally to help his University of Vir­ ginia law school roommate, John Tunney. Tunney, son of prize fighter Gene, seeks to represent the Riverside county and Imperial Valley constituency in the House. These travels arc a new de parture for Kennedy, who had been sticking quietly and close ly to the Senate. Presently, how ever, he is the indicated family spokesman, as the Attorney Gen eral and brother-in-law Sargent Shriver are Johnson aides and inhibited from active politicking except at his signal. The primary — May 15 — is a boon to Hatfield. It brings not only candidates and their advocates here but the great world of communications from their fortress, New York. The attrac tive Governor's door is always open and his bright-eyed press secretarj', Travis Cross, is an ever-present help to all. Geographically, Hatfield balances all the candidates except Sen, Barry Goldwater, and the Hat field moderation balances the' Senator ideologically. Should the national prospect fail him, Hat^eld is expected to run against Sen. Maurine Neu berger in 1966. Exasperated Democrats who charge that the Hatfield glamour far exceeds his real gifts concede that the Senate race might be dose. Democratic distrust here of Robert Kennedy stems initially from his conduct of the JlcClel Ian committee hearings on racketeering. Democrats who did much to unearth Portland scandals support his aims but charge that he was unmindful of isdi vidual rights when pursuing them. The heat of the argument, so evident in 1960, has cooled, but the memory lingers. (Copyright, 1964, ny United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) U.S. neglecting its underseas exploration By DOUGLAS DILTZ LOS ANGELES (UPI) - The United States is neglecting its underseas exploration in favor of too much emphasis on space, a scientist said today. Ron Hinman, head of the Sys terns Management Division of Western Gear Corp., said "this could be far more dangerous than forgetting about anti-mis' sile missiles." "We have as much need to worry about the missiles com jng from an offshore submarine as we do from one coming over the North Pole," he said. He noted that for 1963 the U.S. Government allotted only S14.5 million to oceanography— to study the mysteries of "in ncr space" — while So billion went for "outer space." However, Hmman said the "average landlubber" has no idea of ths extent to which sci entists of his company and oth er firms arc working to develop foolproof defensive mea sures against possible enemy at Ucks. "The problems of working in Computer brains no substitute for human mind BERKELEY — Computer "brains" are not replacing the human variety — in fact, they are creating an even bigger demand for highly trained human minds. This is the view of a noted physicist and Nobel Prize winner who spoke recently to a group of high school students on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. "Computers are fast and they are patient, but thc.v are also quite stupid," said Dr. Owen Chamberlain, professor of physics at Berkeley and general chairman of the recent North- cm California Junior Science and Humanities Symposium held on the campus. ; They are able, at best, to do exactly what they are asked to do, he added. "I urge all high school students to carry their education to as advanced a level as possible," he said. "Our . country needs more trained minds every year; there is no more important process today than the thinking process." Attending the Junior Symposium at Berkeley were some 300 outstanding high school students from 40 nortbem California counties. The Symposium was sponsored by the U.S. Army's Research Office, International Business Machines Corporation, and the University of California. water miles deep are apparent," Hinman said. "Take the search for the submarine Thresher, for example. This proved how lacking in undersea vehicles we really are. "The Na\-y is interested in de veloping underwater robots which read like science fiction of a few years ago — vehicles equipped with television cameras and mechanical arms and flood lights. "We're building some of the exoUc equipment for Subroc, the torpedo - missile that emerges from the water, flies through the air to the proximity of its target, then re-enters the water to complete its mission." The scientist said there "could be much more value to mankind beneath the rolling seas than there is on all the way-out planets combine d." He said there is food and minerals and life-saving protection" to be found in the "inner space" of the seas. 'If the population growtli causes worry that man can't produce enough food on land, there's a tremendous untapped food source in the sea," Hinman said. "If oil, vital to modem machmery, mns out in our proven fields, there's as much or more beneath the ocean." "The appalling fact is that all of man's knowledge of oceano graphy is still meager," said Hinman. "We think it's time more people applied the con ccpts of space to the space be neath the ocean, which may be more meaningful to man than zippmg around Venus." SIDE GLANCES By tiiU tax "Laura, I'm not amused!" Washington Window True story of phone-coll thot decfcd Kennedy Presidenf By Ljle C. WilsoB Long after the event, UPI's AL Kuettner dug out the true story of John F. Kennedy's 1960 campaign intervention in behalf of the Rer. Martin Luther King, then jailed in Georgia. About a fortnight before the 1960 presidential election, the story broke that Kennedy's intervention had sprung the reverend from jail. Moreover, candidate Kennedy also had made the well - publicized long distance telephone to Sirs. King expressing concern for ber husband. If anything was needed to as sure the Northern Negro vote for the Kennedy-Johnson ticket, that did it, Kuettner now reports from Atlanta that the Martin Luther King strategy was wbomped up by William B. Hartsfield, then mayor of Atlanta, Ga. As Hartsfield recalled the incident to Kuettner, the ma}-or's office was full of protesting Negroes, letters and telegrams were arriving from all oTcr demanding King's re lease. Couldn't R««ch Kennedy Hartsfield realized that King could become a flamboyant campaign issue and, maybe, help elect John F. Kennedy as president When he tried to reach candidate Kennedy by telephone, Hartsfield had no luck. JFK was moving too fast. So the mayor telephoned friends at the Democratic National Committee in Washington. He told them he would order the Atlanta police to release King and announce that be acted at candidate Ken nedy's request. He warned the politicos not to deny his story. Kennedy instantly bought the deal when be learned of it and placed his well-publicized telephone call to Mrs. King. Considering the narrow margin by which JFK defeated Richard M. Nixon in 1960, it is reasonable to believe that HartsGeld's maneuver elected Kennedy, didn't say it. President Dwight D. Eisenhower saw it that way. He told White House visitors in mid- December 1960 that the election had been won by a couple of| telephone calls, obviously referring to the Hartsfield-Kennedy coup. But thcra was more. Nixon's 1960 presidential campaign was snake-bit from the start and never more so than in the Martin Luther King incident The Republican effort was crawling with gremlins. Awar* Of Situation The New York Times re vealed Dec. 15, 1960, that the justice Department under Atty, Gen. William P. Rogers had been alert to the Martin Luther King situation. The department drafted a statement for Eisenhower to make on the subject of King's arrest In it, Ike would have ordered the attorney general to act to get King freed. The Times further related that on Oct. 22 an Atlanta Republican politician had made a futile effort to reach Nixon by long distance telephone to propose that he inter\-ene in the Moving becomes deductible item Moving to another city or state to take a new job is going to be easier on the pocketbookj from now on. Under the new U.S. tax law, moving expenses of this type are deductible. As a. result a sharp rise in intercity and interstate moving is expected this year, according to Clem Martin, manager of Tri City Van i- Storage, local agent for Mayflower long - distance service, and it is in long-distance moving that the biggest increase is anticipated as a result of the new tax provisions on moving expenses. Mr. Martin explained that the new law permits an individual to deduct the cost of moving to take a new job, providing the move is at least 20 miles and the employe is not reimbursed by his new employer. Previously, such moving expenses were not deductible. If the individual is reimbursed by his new employer, he no longer must declare the amount of the reimbursement as income and pay tax on it In addition the individual now may also deduct the cost of transporting his family to the new location. This travel expense allowance includes food and lodging on the way. "The new tax bill not only will encourage more people to move to distant cities to take advantage of better job opportunities," said Martin, "but it will encourage them to take more of their household possessions with them." Heretofore, a man moving to take a new job was discouraged from moving all of his house hold goods because, even if reimbursed, he had to pay tax on the reimbursement Motorcyclist liurt in crash EL CAJON (UPD-WiUiam E. Hall, 44, Corona Del Mar, was reported in serious condition today in El Cajon Valley Hospi tal from injuries suffered when his motorcycle collided with car. The accident occurred Sunday on snow-covered U.S. 80 just west of Pine Valley. California Highway Patrolmen said Hall's motorcycle sideswiped a car driven by Cyril Van Kramer, 22, San Diego. Hall suffered a broken knee and ribs, attendants reported. King arrest before Kennedy got into the act President Eisenhower never made the statement that had been prepared for him. The Atlanta politico apparently never got through to Nixon. The Democrats got away free with the neatest trick of the campaigp. All of this took place, of| course, at a Ume when Nixon still was deluding himself with the belief that he would sweep the Solid South. He may not have wanted to offend white Southerners by saying a good word for King- .Anj-way, he didnT say it CARNIVAL By Dick Toner "OhiL coma now, Mrs. Prantiss! Surely you wouldn't want to ba the only woman in the neighborhood not to know about the Smiths!" Foreign audiences have varied TV program likes By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Corr«H>endant HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — The stream of American television shows being shipped abroad has become a virtual torrent, making video exports a major item of international trade. Hundreds of series—and single shows—both new and ancient are being shown from Japan to Uganda in breath-taking quantity. Millions of dollars are involved. "Bonanza," for instance, is seen in 56 different countries. "Ben Casey" is bemg distributed in 57. "Perry Mason" in 48. Every civilized country outside the Iron Curtain — and some uncivilized ones — beam American television shows. Certiin patterns have emerged that indicate foreign tastes in video entertainment vary tremendously from homegrown preferences. Situation comedies are the least popular exports while they top the ratings at home. Variety shows and musicals also are tatxra. Distributors are experimenting with new sound tracks and laugh tracks, however, and 'The Dick Van Dyke" and "1 Love Lucy" shows are beginning to catch on around the world. But the big favorites are "The Defenders," "Burke's Law," "Dr. Kildarc," "The Greatest Show on Earth," Gunsmoke," "Twilight Zone," "rne Fugitive" and "Outer Limits" among current series. Such oldtimers as "Medic," "87th Precinct" "National Velvet" "Panic" and "Victory at Sea" are still going strong. Our biggest customers are Australia, Japan the South American countries and Mexico. Australia buys more than 40 of our series, as does Japan. Not all of the shows are run on a weekly basis. A German sta tion, for instance beams only six "Perry Mason" shows a year. Blase Paris runs only two American shows in prime time —and both are amazingly square for the City of Lights, Wanted, Dead or Alive" and "My Friend FUcka," neither of which were hits in the U.S. Foreign countries rely almost entirely on American television to supplant local shows. But England is moving into the field now. A trickle of British-made shows are flooding into this country, "The Saint," "Danger Man" and "Espionage." One of the largest distribu tors of American television abroad is ABC International Television, Inc., which purchased $8 million worth of video programming last year. Little dubbing is done in most countries—a notable exception Redlands Daily Faefs HiiL, March 23,1964 -7 THE ALMANAC Today is Monday, March 23, the SSrd day of 1964 with 283 to fbUow. The moon is approaching its fun phase. The evening stars are Venus and Jupiter. On this day in history: In 1775. Patrick Henry, speaking before the Virginia Convention, made his immortal statement—"I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death." In 1933, the German Reichstag gave Adolf Ifitler "blanket powers" for four years. In 1942, Japanese-Americans were moved from their homes along the Pacific coast to inland communities as a wartime precaution. In 1943, the Danes, bravely de^g Germans occupying the nation, voted 99 per cent for democracy and one per cent for the new order of Germany. A thought for the day—German author Goethe once said: The sum which two married people owe to one another defies calculation. It is an infinite debt, which can only be discharged through all eternity." is Japan. Jlost American programs are beamed in English with the native dialogue flashed in subtitles. Others simply mn the shows as they arrive. If the viewers don't speak English, tough. The reason for this massive foreign activity: The number of television homes abroad (60 million) has surpassed the number of domestic television domiciles (approximately 56 mil- Uon)» ipfas «sE.r:.'--;i FREE PARKING AT REAR OF STORE DOWNTOWN REOLANOS Save time and trouble . . .
