« - Tues., March 24, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts CARNIVAL Candidate Allen issues campaign statement By Dick Turner Jack G. Allen, a Republican candidate for Congress in this district, has issued the following statement: I wish all of the citizens of our county to know my purposes, reasoning and what I sincerely believe to be my qualifications in seeking the privilege of representing them in the Congress of the United States. My purposes are simple and clear: To forcefully represent our county in the Congress. To exercise considered judgment in all matters pertaining to our county and nation. To be attentive to the needs of all segments of our population and to serve tliem sincerely and impartially. Everyone knows our country is facing serious threats. Its need are urgent. These must be met with alert thinking, planning and tactics — every force available — as the situation in dicates. Therefore I believe the man we elect must have broad top-level experience to deal with these matters. This should in elude holding positions of respon sibility in which varied problems have been faced and decisions made. During the difficult period ahead,- San Bernardino County will need a congressman with the comprehension and adaptability which can be gained only through dealing with many types of people in different geographical and ethnic areas. I have been fortunate enough to have had that kind of experience, in both military and civilian life, in many areas of the world. First, however, my roots are deep in our county. I was bom in San Bernardino and have had my schooling and a substantial share of my business experience and community service here. My business experience has been long and varied and covers not only all of the United States, but every country in the Western Hemisphere and Europe. Moreover, I did not "start at the top" in these businesses, but over the years gained top management positions in several business firms, serving as president of two of them. 1 know what it means to work hard. Among other experiences, I was assigned to and completed the task of negotiating with the Canadian Government for a factory in the Province of Ontario. This involved many complications, international in scope, not the least of which was tariff. That factory is now in operation. My present job is that of president of an industrial iron works in San Bernardino. It is a union shop. I feel that my military back ground is an added and import ant asset. Moving from a "buck Private" in the San Bernardino County National Guard to rank of Colonel in the Army of the United States has provided a useful depth of experience. This service ranged from command of combat troops in the Battle of the Bulge to Army Genera] Staff service, including three years service in Washington, D. C. as an Inspector General. My community service activities have covered service as a worker in our own Arrowhead United Fund drives; chairman of the Advancement Committee for the Los Angeles Area Coun cil Boy Scouts of America, and as foreman of the 1963 San Bernardino County Grand Jury. My education and training include: Stanford University (Law), 1927. U.S.C. (Post-graduate course in Business Administration and Finance.) Army Command and General Staff College. Training by the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, and the Army Guided Missile School. I will appreciate sincerely the thoughtful consideration of our county's citizens may give this statement and my desire to serve them further. Need something new TEZY By Kate Omm "A little more of this sort of thing and I'll bet dogs won't continue to be man's best friend!" Notes from foreign news cables TELEVISION IN REVIEW By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) mild rash of televised political debates, or reasonable facsimi les thereof, is breaking out — tliough the big news of whether President Johnson will alao take the ftcp is not yet officially known. Last Wednesday night, in prime time. Sens. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota and Strom Thurmond of South Carolina debated the civil rights biU on "CBS ReporU." This Sunday, according to an ABC-TV announcement, Gov. George Wallace of Alabama and Sen. Daniel Brewster, D- Md., who will be opponents in the Maryland presidential preference primary in May, will appear on the network's "Issues and Answers." ABC describes the Wallace-Brewster Yorf y blasts Brown's drug action refusal LOS ANGELES (UPI>-Mayor Samuel W. Yorty today said Gov. Edmund G. Brown has refused to call for immediate legislative action on attempts to place strict controls on the drug Percodan. Yorty said Brown explained his position ia a letter. Brown was quoted in the letter as being against placing the issue on special call unless "some emergency would occur which could not wait until the next regular ses- meeting as a "confrontation." There was also another scheduled debate last week, which I confess I missed, with probably a great many other viewers, because of its early morning Lsting and relatively late announcement The billing for this discussion found Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia and Sen. Humphrey as the an nounced combatants — and the point is that video is thinking along debating lines currently. Strangely, all the abovc-nen tioned figures are Democrats, which can be Interpreted any way you want You may recall that some months ago Gov. Nelson Rockefeller and Sen. Barry Gldwater were offered aur time to debate issues. Goldwater, the first to reply, declined the invitation arguing that such a move would serve to divide Republicans. Rockefeller said he was for the debate.

SIDE GLANCES By GUI Fox By WILLIAM J. FOX United Press International Notes from the foreign news cables: De Gaulle Views: President Charles de Gaulle plans to go to the people to win new support for his poUcies when he gets back from his current foreign travels. The French leader plans to hit back at the mounting criticism of his foreign aid program, which he extended even further during his visit to Mexico. He has scheduled a grass-roots speaking tour of tliree northeastern departments of France April 16-20. At that time, he plans to push his ideas and also try to show that he does not ignore public opinion entirely—as his critics so often charge. However, he is said to have abandoned earlier thoughts of staging some kind of popular referendum vote this . year. De Gaulle has staged and won a number of similar referendums in the past. And it had been thought he would come up with another one now, largely as a popularity test-before deciding whether (o run for a second term in 1965. But that idea has been scotched because he can't find a burning issue which would fire up the French public to roll out and vote for him. Indonesian Muscle: The way the Maysians figure it, if Indonesia's President Sukarno weren't "confronting" them, he wt>uld be after someone else—say the Portuguese on Timor, the Filipinos, or the Australians in Eastern New- Guinea. Some officials in Kuala Lumpur say the saber - rattlingj by Indonesia agamst Malaysia is just an excuse for Sukarno to begin showing his muscle among his neighbors—now that the Dutch are no longer around and because of many internal problems. Military Pilferage: With the arrival of spring, officials expect a steep increase in the pilferage of U.S. military property in Korea. A num ber of Koreans have been shot while engaged in such thievery, touching off some unpleasant moments in relations between Seoul and Washington. However, U.S. army officials and Korean authorities now are jointly studjing measures to curb the situation. The Koreans have been cracking down at all levels, and in one recent case 195 Korean policemen were arrested for malfeasance of duty in connection with the pilferage and sale of stolen property. Most of the losses run to radio parts, commimications wire, metal, vehicles and personal property. But there was an unusual new addition to the record: "eight miles of road stolen." The asphalt topping was found to be flammable. So eight miles of it were chopped up and sold for house fuel! Javits says Lodge should return to U.S. WASHINGTON (UPI) — Sen Jacob Javits, R-N.Y., wants Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge to return to the United States now if he is serious about the Republican presiden tial nomination. Javits, during a radio-televi sion interview for New York stations, said a "presidential candidate must e.\pose himself, to the American people."

(UPI)-Amcr ica's new Junior Miss, Linda Felber of Colfax, Wash., travels to New York today for magazine and broadcasting inter- \iews that will begin her year's reign as the ideal high school senior.

Wallace's efforts to win votes in Wisconsin's Democratic primary drew political attention away from the West Coast Monday. Wallace was scheduled to make another foray into the .Alidwestem stale seeking sup port in Wisconsin's April 7 presidential primary. Democratic "truth squads" were ex pected to dog the segregation ist governor wherever he went in an effort to offset any votes he may be able to gamer. "No Joke" Wisconsin Democrats led by Gov. John Reynolds warned party members that Wallace 'must not be looked upon as joke." A substantial vote for the Alabama leader, Reynolds said, would "give heart to the hatemongers from coast to, coast" Wallace already has spent more than a week in the state speaking on college campuses and small town streets to further his ambition to "shake the eye-teeth of naU'onal politicals" by gathering a big vole in the state's primary. The June 2 primary in California still was uppermost in Republican minds. Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon, departing on a 23-day trip to the Far East, declared Sunday night that the victor of tiic California contest will be a "very potent candidate" for the GOP nomination at the national convention. "Roll Over Convention" He said that the California primary "comes late and its ef feet will roll over to the con vention" which will be held July 13. Pierre Salinger, former ^Vhite House press secretary who re signed to seek the California Democratic senatorial nomina tion, began legal maneuvers today to gain certification as an eligible candidate. He said his lawyers would ask the state Su preme Court to order Secretary of State Frank Jordan to certify him for the ballot. Salinger, until recently, was a Virgmia resident Br JESSE BOGUE UPI Finaneu! Editor NEW YORK (UPI)-In the business of convenience foods, said Herman W. Lay, you have to have something new all the; time. Lay is chairman of the executive committee and chief executive officer of Frito-Lay, Inc., DaUas, Texas. With Fladger F. Tannery, president of the company, he discussed the changes which have occurred in the field of convenience foods over the past several years; they have come about as America's eating habits and leisure activities have altered. Convenience foods," he said in answer to a question, "are more than just 'snack foods such as the packaged com chips and potato chips with which nearly everyone is familiar. They also include instant teas, instant coffees, instant rice; frozen orange juice can be considered a convenience food, as caii the packaged din ners which come frozen and ready for heating and consumption." Basic Foods The "snacks," represented by the com and potato chip packages, Tannery said in further illustration of differences in the nation's eating habits, have as sumed in part the role of basic foods; they appear as a regular feature in school lunch programs, in the workman's lunch box, as well as in the home for between-meal eating. There will be other trends in years to come; the company works constantly with its re search staff, production and marketing men, and outside consultants in an attempt to an ticipate these. It has made feasibility studies in three overseas nations, looking at the eating habits, ethnic backgrounds and the differences between here and overseas in distribution and marketing channels. "For example," said Tannery, "We use primarily the driver-salesman type of distribution, which would just not be possible in some overseas operations." "But we feel we are going to| go very slowly and feel our way in any ventures of this kind. We are not going overboard in allocating funds abroad," said Lay. Raw Materials As in any food company of national scope such as Frito- Lay, the officials explained, considerable interest is taken in the raw material which goes into preparation of the company staples. Frito-Lay has its own pro gram for raising potatoes. Lay said it was estimated that only 20 per cent of the potatoes grown in the United States make a good potato chip, only a few out of the dozens of varieties which are marketed. Com likewise comes in for research. "We have to use a special type and quality of{ com," said Tannery, "and it undergoes an extra special sort of cleaning. By the time we are ready to use it, it is an expen sive type of com." The company has nearly 50 manufacturing plants, scattered in strategic areas around the country. Frito-Lay was formed in a 1961 merger of Frito Co. and H. W. Lay, both of which began as small operations in the same year— 1932— and went their independent ways for years. The Federal Trade Commission late ast year said recent mergers and acquisitions by the company had the effect of lessening competition or tending toward a monopoly, a charge which company officials denied, saying that competition in the snack foods business was growing ever sharper.

In 35 years of Oscar awards only IS foreigners have won major acting honors. In this year's voting there are 10 foreign - bora candidates among the 20 nominated for top acting awards. But that's just the beginning. The foreign invasion and Hollywood's loss of domination is reflected right down the line. Three of the five nominated "best films" were made overseas. Three of the five "best actor" candidates are English men. Four of the five best supporting actress nominees are foreign bora. And the motion picture with the largest number of Oscar bids — 10 — is the made-in-England "Tom Jones." Hopes for rapid transit bill S.'iCRAMENTO (UPI) - Sen. Thomas M.

LOS ANGELES (UPI) —Jlo- bert ("Birdman of Alcafraz") Stroud, a convicted murderer who became an authority on bird diseases while behind bars left a will describing his hopes for building a model prison. A hand-written, nine-page let ter was filed for probate Friday by attorney Stanley A. Furman of Beverly Hills. Stroud died Nov. 21,1963 at Springfield, Mo., in the U.S. Medical Center for federal prisoners. He was 73. Stroud said in the letter - will he wanted to write several universities to get a "top notch graduate student in architecture to design a model prison which he hoped to finance partly with a 40 per cent interest on royalties from his biography, "Birdman of Alcatraz." "There has not been one prison put up during the last SO years that is not a disgrace to civilization or which is designed for good discipline and efficient management of the kind required to bring about a high level of rehabilitaUon," Stroud wrote. His estate, Furman said, consisted of an uncashed check for S447.84 left in Los Angeles and the book royalties. He designated his sister, Mrs. Mamia Stroud Shaffer, 80, as his sole heir. He also left a brother, L.G. Marcus, of Honolulu. Stroud spent the last 54 years of his life in prison despite international attention that focused on him from the book "Birdman of Alcatraz," a movie of the same title, and subsequent appeals for his release. His book, "Stroud's Digest of Bird Diseases," was published in 1939, three years before he was transferred from the Federal Penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kan., to Alcatraz. Some bfend Aomemofcer role wif/i ffieir career If the nominations confused most moviegoers this year, can't say I blame them. The movie "Hud" reflects the strangest turn of nominee voting. The film won seven major nominations: Best director, best actress, best actor, best supporting actor, best screenplay, best black and white cinematography and best black and white art direction. But the voters surprisingly said "No" to "Hud" in the "best picture" category. How could it happen? The only explanation is that actor members of the Academy nominate actors; directors nominate only directors; writers vote on the writers, etc. In se- electing nominees the full membership of the Academy votes only on the "best picture." In other words, the Academy members strangely thought almost everything about "Hud" was great except the movie itself. Meanwhile "aeopatira," deserving of only most-expensive- picture-of - the - year honors, won a best picture nomination. It beats me, too. By GAY PAULEY NEW YORK (UPI)-Some women combine role of homemaker and careerist with complete assurance. Some candidly admit they can't Betty Commden says she is among the latter group. Miss Camden is wife, mother, performer and half of a writing team highly successful on Broadway and in Hollywood. In filluig these assorted roles, she voices what many another woman in multiple roles must often feel. I'm going off in so many directions I probably do each job less well than I'd like to, said Miss Comden. "I've always admired the women who do so many things with aplomb. "I'm always deeply concerned that I might neglect But think we working women leara to live with the problems which arc there. They won't disappear." Likes to Work To those who would say. Well! Miss Comden. You don't HAVE to work, why don't you quit?", she answers: "I've always worked. It is part of what I am. Since my husband is . aware of this, I think we both feel we have a better family situation. I don't see me as a keeper of the hearth alone."

A converter devetoped in Britain for reducing the clamor of the drill is being supplied to penumatic tool manufacturers in the United States. The device is a sleeve which fits around standard penumatic drills and changes the frequency of noises produced by the drilL LOS ANGELES—More Americans are killed by automobiles than by any other means, yet most people resist the idea of protecting their own lives. That's the view of Derwyn M. Servey, research engineer, who helped pioneer an experimental automobile collision program, sponsored by UCHA's Institute of Transportation and Traffic Engineering. The program has supplied government agencies throughout the world with important facts about auto accidents. According to Severy, automobile manufacturers stand ready to equip cars with a number of valuable safety modifications, and many design innovations have already been tried on experimental models. Unfortunately, he says, these improvements add to the cost of the car. and therefore some safety devices must await public acceptance before they appear in produc tion. Since 1950, 76 automobile collision experiments have been undertaken by Uie Institute at an abandoned airstrip in Long Beach, California.

Among the movies they've written are "Singin* In The Rain", "On the Town", Auntie Mame" and "Bells Are Ringing." Two seasons ago, first in Greenwich Village then on Broadway, the pair presented "a party" in which they performed material from their earlier days as part of a troupe called "The Revuers." Judy Holiday was one of the early revuers.
