Page U REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MARCH 26, 1964 Salinger seeks senate seat but isn't a voter here On]y by squirming through the crevices in the law can Pierre Salinger get his name on the California Election Ballot. The former press secretary to President Kennedy and President Johnson is not a resident of California. That is the first technical bar, although we do not regard it as of much consequence. Once a man has been elected to the Congress the law is liberal as to residency. Here, the best known case is Rep. Harry R. Shep- pai-d who has not maintained a bona fide residence in San Bernardino county for years. Actually, it would not have been practical for him to have a home here because Congress has been in session so many months of each year. The law is correct in pennitting an incumbent to maintain legal — though nominal — residence in the place he was elected from. Salinger has not been in elective office, but he has lived in Virginia — at least in recent years — because he was in service in Washington. But he did not seek to preserve his California residence. Instead he became an elector in the State of Virginia, where he has been voting. Now he returns to California as neither a resident nor a registered voter and seeks to become a candidate for Senator. In so doing he violates the general understanding that one of the qualifications of a candidate is that he shall be a registered voter in the bailiwick he seeks to represent. Indeed, if the office of U. S. Senator becomes vacant the legal provision is that the governor shall appoint a California "elector" (that is, voter). However, the ways of the law are strange. The California Supreme Court may i-ule that he is qualified to seek the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senator. That would be no calamity. The votei-s themselves would have an opportunity to decide if they considered Salinger sufficiently a Califomian to represent their state in the Senate. Still, we require that people become residents of our state and our county for specified periods in order to vote in all save the pres- dential election. It would hardly be fair to require a mere voter to be a real resident and to permit Salinger, neither a resident nor registered voter, to stand for U.S. Senator. That would be a little too inconsistent to swallow. Oddballs make news Did you see in the paper: Doctors have discovered that husbands and wiv^s can be allergic to each other. (THIS is a discovei-y) The IVIDs blame such things as dandruff and face powder. (We've heard that strange lipstick marks %vill do it, too.) A college professor announces it is now possible to earn a doctor of philosophy degree without taking a course in pWlosophy. (Well, just as long as it doesn't spread to medical schools.) Cleveland, Ohio, learned almost simultaneously from two U.S. government bureaus that (1) it has a Iiigher average annual family income than New York, Chicago or Detroit and (2) its bankruptcy cases have increased 1,000 per cent in 15 years. (More money to go bankrupt with.) An argument between two gourmets over whether the onion in a hot dog sandwich should go on top of or under the wiener ended in a bi-awl and a lawsuit (Sorry, epicureans, but the judge never did say where the onion should go.) A baseball player who gets $50,000 a year has been offered a $3,000 bonus if he will keep his weight down so he can play better. He graciously accepted the offer. (Tliis guy is really big.) A criminologist warns that kids who are spanked for being naughty may grow up to become murderers. (Leave 'em unspanked so they grow up to be merely insufferable.) And in Illinois a coed has nosed out a cow in a spirited race for campus charity queen. (Nothmg beats a pretty girl — not even a pretty cow.) We say it again: A country that can turn out news like this can't be all bad! The Newsreel An emaciated friend has been rebuked by his doctor, who said, "Look, I just gave you the diet; I certamly didn't expect you to stay on it," The pupils of our eyes expand when we think, a research team reports, Anotho: danger we'll have to warn the children about; "Quit thinking, junior; you'll strain your eyes." Washington begins to tear down its Jerrybuilt temporary buildings, just as it was beginning to appear that this fellow Jerry built things to last as long as the pyramids. Congressman Sludgepump watches the space agency's search for moon fragments in west- em Iowa. If they find any, he's going to demand an equal number for his district. With the diildren demanding their allowances and his wife asking for the grocerj' money, a man down the block says he seems to be caught in the crossfire of the war on poverty. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and BiD Moor* By FRANK MOORE For a trip to Mexico you are required to have a smallpox vaccination. Still to be invented, however, is a shot against "tur- ista", the concern of every U.S. resident when he is south of the border. Ordinary diarrhea will not kill you, but it is guaranteed to kill the fun of travel. It was not surprising, then, that the California Flying Farmers with whom we toured in Mexico and Guatemala recently carried enough pills to start a drug store. There were brown pills to prevent "turista" and white pills to cure "turista" if it did catch up with you. There were aspirin tablets to abate the misery. There were water purification piUs to be dropped into the carafes found in the hotel rooms. At every meal there was talk of what was and, was not safe, to eat — the butter, the milk, the lettuce, the radishes. But care, knowledge and pills were not enough. Of the 23 people on the excursion at least a dozen were fetched by "turista". Mexico is a fine place to test your high school Spanish. At first you will be impressed by your o\ra ability to make yourself understood. You will get along because most of the people who serve you know a few words of English relevant to their calling. A taxi driver is familiar with hotel names. A waitress can understand that you want coffee, although nothing short of an Act of Congress will induce her to bring it until the end of the meal. The moment of truth eventually arrives when you come up agamst the native who speaks not one word of English. Raising your voice won't help. Your Spanish vocabulary has suddenly failed. That all important key word — and the key word is the only one that really counts — cannot be summoned. Usually a Spanish speaking friend is in the vicinity and will baU you out. But not always. We don't know whether the mints are on strike in Mexico and Guatemala, but whatever the fact may be, change is extremely hard to come by. Try to get it from hotel cashiers, waiters and the like and you will be frustrated. Any note less than 10 pesos (80 cents) is obtained by luck, only. The next time we go south we are going to get from a Redlands bank, in advance, SO oue dollar bills, two roUs of halves and two rolls of quarters. That should get us through the ordinary tourist day which requires an average of nine tips. Unless he is carrying a camera, the American tourist is naked. The Kodak is part of his costume. It may be, though, that George Eastman should never have invented the Brownie. It is hard. South of the border, to be a shutter bug without at the same time being an Ugly American. The Indians, in their quaint costumes, are the most appeal- ling subjects. They are conditioned — and reasonably so — to the notion that they are entitled to a modelling fee. Yet, there are extreme difficulties in trying to be fair to them. Many of them cannot, understand either English or Spanish and know only the phrases they have learned. . . "take-a- pic". . . "six-bits, six-bits". If }-ou try to make a deal with one, nine cousins, sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles try to horn in. No picture is possible. If j-ou try grab shots, and your subject sees you, he is aggrieved. You are almost forced to make a choice between photography and diplomacy. In this dilemma diplomacy is almost sure to lose. The urge to photograph is too deeply rooted in the American breast. The Big Push Reedy speaks in more deliberate key By WILLIAM S.

This week, in a landmark decision, the U. S. Court of Appeals rejected their complaint, ruling that copyright protection did not extend to parody. I haven't consulted a lawyer, but I assume this gives the rest of us a license to join the fun. So let's clear our throats, revamp the lyrics of "I Lost My Heart In San Francisco," and smg along with the news. "We lost our case in federal courthouse. "The judges there turned down our plea. "So now that little magazine, "Which treats us very mean, "Can still lampoon our songs. "The court won't right these wrongs. "Oh, it's a crime. Tliere ain't no justice. "That's why we sing this mournful tune. "But we'll come back to you. Tin Pan Alley, still "As long as 'moon' rhymes with 'June.'" The same .newspaper that brought me word of the copyright case also carried another item with Tyrie possibilities. It reported that the leader of a cult on a tiny island in the South Pacific had raised $1,000 with the intention of "buying" President Johnson from the United SUtes. A grandiose, plan ,like that fits right into the theme of "Going to Build: A Mountain." to which we sing: "Gonna buy a president "From the USA. "Gonna Ud a thousand 'TorLBJ.. .

Try it to the tune of "Com- WASHINGTON - As th« transition from the Kennedy era to the Johnson era now moves at a somewhat quickened pace, the voice of the White House speaks in a lower, more deliberate key through George Reedy, the new press secretary. Those who are forever chattering about something they call "Presidential style" will find' Reedy less gay, less informal and far less bouncy than his redoubtable predecessor, Pierre Salinger. They will, however, find him no less informative — and certainly no less devoted to his boss, Lyndon Johnson, than Salinger was devoted to John F. Kennedy. Responsibility sits with a heavy solidity on Reedy's massive, round shoulders, and it peers soberly through his heavy-rimmed glasses. He is not humorless. But he is all business, all the time, all 250 pounds of him. He is also, and quite unwittingly, a killer of cliches and a desfroyer of stereotypes. The notion is that President Johnson has always leaned truly in the end only on authentically Texan advisers. The fact is that Reedy — who now sits in an intimately inner- circle seat, indeed — was bom in Chicago and is most clearly and almost painfully not at home on the range. Moreover, he was baked in an indubator for eggheads hardly excelled in cerebral heat even by Harvard College — the University of Chicago. Again, the fiction is that all those really "close to" the President are by definition tough, unbookish types. The fact is that Reedy, a veteran in the service of LBJ going back to the President's Senate days, is bookish — and, yes, even intellectuaL In truth, he is far more intellectual than was Pierre Salinger. The excellent Salinger bad many good qualities in the job, and none that was really, bad. Still, in any contest of brain power around the student lamps there cannot be the slightest doubt that Reedy would well overmatch his predecessor. For Reedy is at heart a backroom boy, an idea man, a writer of philosophically studied memos, an almost detached clinical worker in politics rather than a hearty participant therein. Temperamentally retiring, he did not want the Salinger job — nor did the President welcome Salinger's leavinS it But now that he is in it. Reedy will do welL Back of him is the incomparably demanding reportorial training of press association work, in Reedy's casa with United Press International. He knows what is news and what is not And though he obviously is not in the White House simply to make his chief look bad, he is no hard-sell propagandist — as, indeed, Salinger was not either. But Reedy, who knows Mr. Johnson up and down and sideways, has one special capability not often found in press officers. This is the capacity to understand and to e.xplain the bottom purposes and ideas of his principaL With him, the trees can never become so important as the forest. He may at times be short on details— what did the president have for breakfast and so on — for trivia have a way of escaping his notice, but he will never be caught unaware of the large, subjects of Presidential policies' and Presidential attitudes. Washington correspondents rightly regret the departure of Pierre, who was both a good press secretary and a good fellow — and who, by the way, went out to run for the Senate in California in what is neither a Johnson enterprise nor a Kennedy enterprise but solely a Salinger enterprise. But there is no need to lament For when the President decided that now George must do it, he had a George who really can do it He also had a George who knows that a press secretary's function is, at the end, one of impartial assistance to press, radio, and television. Reedy has never been a man to choose favorites among reporters. And he has also never been a man to promote George Reedy. The months he had been in a White House back room with Hi-defined duties could well have been occupied with just such self - promotion, with no danger of reprisals. For he was definitely "in" and could have thrown his notable weight around without challenge. That he didn't do so - is no special tribute in this instance — for he couldn't have even had the wanted to. (Copyright 1964, by United Feature Syndicate, Inc.) THE DOCTOR SAYS Snerer is butt of iekes. but he's net the victim By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt If you are a snorer, you are not the victim; your roommate is. Snoring is the subject of many jokes but the humor drains out of all of them in the middle of an otherwise peaceful night Let it be said to the credit of the snorer that his snoring is purely involuntary, although how he manages to sleep through all that racket remains one of life's unsolved mysteries. Basically the cause of snoring is vibration of the soft palate and uvula. The underlying causes are many. Lucky is the person who is married to a snorer for whom a correctible cause can be found. Such causes include enlarged tonsils and adenoids; a swollen uvula (usually associated with a tliroat infection); nasal obstruction (due to allergy, infection, a nasal polyp or a deviated nasal septum;) fallmg asleep without removing poorly fitted dental plates — a bad Teletips TOP SHOW: — 9:00, Chan. 13.

The first step in treatment is for the snorer to have a thorough checkup to discover the cause of his snoring and correction of any contributory factors found. Operations for the removal of the uvula and part of the soft palate should never be done. Unfortunately, in many snorers no obvious cause can be found and the treatment then boils down to devices applied tp the snorer or his captive audience. The government has granted patents to over 300 sure-fire "snore stoppers." If any one of them was as good as it was alleged to be, it would have a clear field. None of them are very effective so perhaps the ultimate solution is ear plugs for the real victim. Q — Is there anything you can take for a Pseudomonas infection? A — If you have such an infection the chances are you have been taking penicilllin or a related antibiotic. Psetidomo- nas germs are common in our environment but usually cannot gain a foothold in the body unless antibiotics have suppressed other germs that are normally present Infection witir this organism may occur in the skin, bones, joints, eyes, ears, sinuses, heart, brain, bladder and lungs. If the infection is localized, irrigation with 1 per cent acetic add may be all that is needed. For more persistent infections, nitrofurazoie or such antibiotics as polymyxin, colistin, streptomycin, neomycin and tet- racycfine may. be effective if they can be brought into contact with the infectioii.
