Alexander opposes justice court abolishment Abolishment of justice courts is not in the best interest of a free people, Redlands Justice Court Judge Ben G. Alexander asserted in a special report sub mitted to the County Board of Supervisors this week. The study of issues of government policy in abolishing the office of Justice courts was prepared by Judge Alexander as president of the county Judges, ^larshals and Constables Association. Ills defense of the justice court system comes in the face of a 1963 Grand Jury recommendation to County Supervisors that the Redlands Justice Court be replaced by a Municipal Court. The Grand Jury recommended that the Supervisors "make a thorough feasibility study of combining the Judicial District Courts of Redlands; Yucaipa, Loma Linda and Highland ivith a Redlands Aluncipal Court District which could use the courtroom facilities of the County Building at Redlands." A similar consolidation was proposed for the Fontana, Bloomington and Rialto judicial districts into a Fontana Mimici- pal Court District. Principal Arguments The principal arguments presented by Judge Alexander follows without quotation marks: Justice Courts were created for two purposes. The first of these was to enable citizens to effect equitable settlement of their disputes without. recourse to formal legal proceedings. The first purpose, the more important of the two, is to avoid and to prevent legal actions if at all possible. It is s role that belongs to a judicial office of a government of the people, by the people and for the people. It belongs to an office that is close to the people, an office that is more of them than of cold, impersonal rules of action — for that office, in the person of the judge, must feel deeply, even though fairly and impartially, the strengths and weakness of people, the motives and emotions that propel them; it must encourage and inspire them, both the victims and the transgressors, to exercise reason, compassion, charity — all of the human values in order that the people may reach their own just and proper settlements. Make Own Decision This is the application of ethical and moral forces that a free people have the right to exhaust. This is the fultaess of individual existence that transcends all government power. This is the right to make their own decisions for they are not compelled to invoke the powers of government or due process as the first and only available remedy. The preservation of this estate of free people is the first obligation of our government. The incidents in which it arises are al- Salinger confronted by tough campaign By Doris Fleeson LOS ANGELES - When Attorney General Stanley Mosk balked at the starting gate. Assembly Speaker Jesse Unurh needed a horse for the Senate race. Unruh has now found one in Pierre Salinger, White House press secretary in the Kennedy- Johnson Administrations. Gov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown's horse. State Controller Alan Cranston, is already warmed up and prancing around the track. The ailing incumbent. Sen. Clair Engle, has still to Uke his first step following his Tc -cntry in the race, but has not withdrawn. Salinger first has had to seek a court test of his eligibility, as he has been a registered voter in Fairfax County, Va., since 1960 and resided in the Washington area three years before that. If he wins it, California will again stage one of those titillating political contests, which have bewitched, bothered and bewildered the more sedate states and Washington for many years. Governor Brown and others will not be amused because they had already committed themselves to.Cranston, nor will they care to enlarge Unruh's influ ence. A Kennedy favorite, Un ruh had used the ^Vhite House leverage on Brown, but it is now lost to him. President Johnson has lost a key figure in his effort to advertise administration continuity with the Kennedy policies. The Presdent is entitled to his own team who understand him, but he wants that identification with John F. Kennedy until he wins a voter mandate of his own, as he hopes to do next November. Salinger will carry the Kennedy colors here with some discreet Johnson touches. Cran ston will seek a tasteful combi nation of Johnson, Kennedy and Brown hues, and he will carry a lasso plainly labeled Unruh which he will try to place on Salinger's shoulders. Less picturesque than Salinger' in person and expression, Cranston will dwell upon his knowledge of the state and his experience in one of its most important offices. He abo has the endorsement of the grass-roots California Democratic Council. No Democrat has ever won statewide without it, but the CDC and Cranston, one of its founders, are considered too liberal by some circles. Salinger's starting problem, if he qualifies, is money. A vigorous primary in big and populous California costs $400,000 more or less. He has been assured that there is plenty of loose money around which was waiting for Mosk to declare and that it's his. A congenial companion, a lover of good food and wine, the portly press ace will also find an 18-hour campaign day a se vere test of his endurance. This time, too, he must attend to de tail, press the flesh, and either answer the questions or evade them successfully. No Kennedy mantle will be there to shroud his personal inadequacies. Salinger has displayed a sense of political reality in making the break for a powerful politi cal post of his o^n amid the shifting scenes in Washington. His judgment of his chances may be too exuberant. He would not be the first to find that the view from Washington is dis torted. But it's a free country. (Copyright, 1964, by United Feature Sj-ndicate, Inc.) Anything having to do with water should be of more than passing interest to us in San Bernardino County. Last week in the press the story broke of a great new plan to bring water from northern British Columbia in Canada to the United States and Mexico. One of the proposed tremendous canals (a mile wide and fifty feet deep) will serve the Pacific Southwest. It is a grandiose scheme of a magnitude never before conceived by man. Hope it works. The session of the Legislature is picking up steam. Last week the Assembly Ways and Means Committee approved a budget slightly larger than the one asked by the Governor. It is chockfull of spendmg gimmicks. It is rumored about the legis lative corridors that there is a possibility the Legislature may ad.journ immediately after agreement on the budget is reached by both houses. If this I happens, and it could happen before you read this, there will be many bills now in the special session that will go down the I political hatch by remaining in committee. Of course, the (Jovemor has the authority to recall the Legislature for another special session, and this would make, a good many politicos very un- I happy in an election year. One of the hot subjects on the political burner is the question of bond issues. For what? How mncji? When to vote? It is my judgment that the school bond issues should be placed on the June ballot. Education should not be a political issue. The Redlands Daily facts WeA, March 25, 1964-11 sooner a decision can be made the better off we will be, as we can then get on with the. educational program and quit kicking it about Legislation has been introduced reqiuring "full disclosure" of state bond acts and the costs. The measure will provide that the ballot descriptions of the proposed bond issues shaD include the full cost of interest and other charges necessary to retire each bond. The thinldng back of this proposition is the people have a right to know. \Vhat do you think? Your opmions and suggestions are in.- vited.

The contract, which runs for I two years, increases the daily wage from S24.25. to $26.25. It also hikes vacation pay by $25 (to $225 for two weeks. The pact covers approximately 150,000 workers. It is tiie .first new agreement between I the United Mine Workers and the Bitummous C;oal Worken Association' in six years. most as numerous as the people themselves. There are the batteries inflict ed upon family, friend or neigh bor in the heat of argument or alcoholic revelry; there are the outraged parent or relative of neglected children; there is the hurt, confusion and revenge m the heart of the mate of strayed husband or wife; there is the merchant with the unpaid bill; the customer with the faulty repair of home, auto or appliance; there are the noisy vehicles, the loud stereo and backyard quarrels for which local police are called with monotonous regularity; there is the damage claim, the wrongfully detained • property; there is the youngster who has stolen the first gasoline for his proudest possession. AU of these and others like them come in a never endmg stream; they come to have the wrongs set right. Don't Want Arrest As often as not, they begin by saying, "I don't want him arrested, isn't there some way we could get him straightened out without going to court?", or I don't want to file suit, but, couldn't you talk to him, if he'll just pay something now and then so I'll get my money, that's all I want." This is the victim talking; this is the man that government insures will be rendered his due, and he's saying, in effect, "I'll setUe this right, but, out of court if it can be done." This is the man who has the right to make this very decision — without government consent. Here is the precise object of people — to get along with one anoUier. Here is the precise object of all government powers — to enable people to get along with one another in the fulhiess of individual existence. This is the other side of the justice courts, effected by the inherent, natural powers of people and not through the imposition of powers vested in government; this is the side of the justice court that is not relegated to nor regulated by the formal rules of action. Available to People The justice court is the only judicial office readily available to the people. When this office is abolished, there is no judicial office to which people can turn that is not just an office of government. In the other side described above, the judge of the justice court acts entirely as an arbitrator for the people involved and does not impose any of the powers of government. It is his knowledge of the individual people and the regard in which they hold him that acts here quite independ- enUy of the office. In a public hearing not long ago a state assemblyman described justice courts as outmoded horse and buggy justice that should be abolished. The office is being abolished; there are less than 300 justice courts left in this state, 24 of which are in San Bernardino County. It is being abolished tmder pro visions of amendments to t h e state constitution by Uie direct vote of the people. Consider Effects It is almost an article of faith that people must have wanted what was adopted, else they tt-ould not have voted for it.
