Redlands woman will be relieved of anxiety now that the police have ari-ested the man tliey are certain was breaking into houses and raping lone womea To have such a diabolic person at large in town was the basis for continuing teiror. While it surely seemed to those who lived in fear that apprehension of the offender was slow, the police actually did a tremendous amount of tedious, painstaking and systematic work. So strongly did individual officers feel that they contributed hundreds of hours of their own time in conducting intensive watches and patrols in the troubled neighborhoods. Yet they were unable to reveal their opei-- ations to the public because that would have tipped off the fiend they were striving so haj-d to catch. With the first break in the case they wore able to move quickly and make the arrest. After weeks of fi-ustration in trying to catch this man, Chief Stanley Bowen and his willing men should feel deeply gratified in theh- sen-ice to the people of Redlands. For earthquake rescues That w^e have made no progress on the West Coast in getting a French Capson device for finding people who ai'e trapped in rubble is strongly implied by the news out of Alaska in the past week. For example, the Associated Press reported from Anchorage on Tuesday evening — four full daj's after the quake: "Sun-ivors ran for their lives (on Good Friday) and spent a harrowing night in the dark heatless homes. Scores joined police and military imits searching through the wreckage for those possibly trapped, but still alive." The day before (Monday) Paul Weeks of the Los Angeles Times WTote from Anchorage: "Rescue workers prowled through the catacombs of half-buried downtown block today after a militaiy guard reported he heard screams for help. 'I hope somebody was just heai'ing things,' said Bill Hendricks, chief of the rescue squad." How different wei^e the reports following the earthquake last July 26 in Skoplje, Yugoslavia. That disaster also came on a Friday and on Sunday a crew of French technicians was flown in and immediately began to perform muscles. In the first and most dramatic one they located a Belgian biologist and his wife who, after 55 hours of entombment, had planned to cut their wi-ists and die together. On Monday the Capson crew.s found 10 people. As late as Tuesday night Ihey were still able to find a buried but living man. We believe that if a Capson device had been available in the Western United States it would have been flown to Alaska. The stoiy Paul Weeks wrote for the Times would have been altogether different. To refresh your memory, the Capson device was invented by the French specifically to find people imder rubble. The essential parts are: 1 A microphone that can detect the slightest sound, such as a person breathing. 2 A long tube on which the mike is mounted. This can be poked down into narrow crevices. 3 An electronic cunp- lifier. 4 Stethescope ear tubes which the operators listen with. The whole outfit is light in weight Writing of the Capson last August 2 we suggested that the supervisors in this county should check into the availability of one in California.- This came after a showing of interest by the Los Angeles County Supervisors. Now we are informed by Laurens Packard, civil defense coordinator of San Bernardino county, that he did make inquiries last August with negative results. To his knowledge there is no Clapson in California that could be flown in here from a central location such as Sacramento, in the event of an earthquake disaster. There may come another day in this region of the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults where lives could be saved if the French invention were available in California. The Alaskan quake suggests that you never know from whom the bell will toll. The chief of civil defense for California should see that our state gets a Capson soon. The Newsreel Higher education, w^ are told, is at the cross- ixjads. Many institutions of higher learning have to choose between more books for the library or mor6 parking lots. The Air Force has."Steve Canyon," the army has "Beetle Bailey," the little leagues have "Peanuts" and the school drop-outs have "Orphan Annie." Lyndon Johnson is optimistic about business in 1964. It may or may not be a great year for business, but it's a great year for optimism. Advance ticket sales inicate that the New York World's Fair is already a financial success, but they are going to go ahead and hold it anyway. General Gruenther laments that American communities "have lost some of their zip.". And only the Postoffice department seems interested in restoring it With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moor* When Karl Toevs visited the Lincoln Shrine on March 23 we hope that he took the trouble to sign the register. The great book would be incomplete without his name for he now stands as the visitor who will be best remembered. This Is not to say that we are- unappreciative of others who have made the pilgrimage. Certainly the most distinguished among them is Lincoln's biographer, Carl Sandburg. But no other visitor — including Sandburg — has ever been so enthusiastic about the Shrine that he could scarcely wait to return. Tocvs was only able to restrain himself for five days. He was on fire with the idea of all of the valuable things be could steal before the very eyes of the marble bust of Lincota. Upon approaching the octagonal building he gave more thought to the doors than any other guest. It was his opinion the entrance should have been as impregnable as the vaults of Fort Kno.x. (Never mind that some folks think churches and shrines should need no locks at all.) Having put temptation in the way of the devil, Toevs reasons, what could the trustees c.\pcct? Once inside the Shrine, Tocvs reports, he was angry with himself for not having come with a truck. There was so much to steal that he couldn't take all of the precious things within his reach. Just why he discarded on the library grounds the Gettysburg battlefield bullets is not clear. Perhaps, in his singular way. he felt that anytliing that had once been "lost" and again found, should be returned to the "lost" department. Much more obvious was his lust for the Lincoln coins which he wanted for reasons no different than those of the liquor store armed robber who scoops the cash out of the register. It was pure greed. Fortunately, his impulse to turn the old coins into modem cash set the trap enabling the police to capture him. That they worked with such speed and efficiency saved the irre- placablc treasures of the Shrine, and they have been returned. From this crazy episode, which could have ended in a tragic, heart breaking loss, to the Shrine, there is an inverse consolation. As never before Toevs, the thief, has publicized the value of our Lincob treasures. Citizens who were unaware that much was to be found there have been forced to admit: "Well, I just never thought of the Shrine that way." To you we leave this philosophical speculation. Suppose that the Shrine bad been to another great man — say George Washington. Suppose that Lincohi was the magistrate who had to pass judgment on Toevs. What would be his decision . . . and what would his remarks be from the bench to the prisoner? THE ALMANAC Today is Friday, April 3, the 94th day of 1964 with 272 to follow. The moon is approaching its last quarter. The evening stars are Mercury and Venus. On this day in history: In 1860, the Pony Express postal service began when riders left St. Joseph, Mo., and Sacramento, Calif., at the same time. In 1882, the infamous Jesse James was shot and killed by a member of his gang, Robert Ford. A thought for the day: English novelist Samuel BuUer once said: "The man who lets himself be bored is even more contemptible than the boor."

LIGHTER SIDE Improving the image WASHINGTON (UPI)-I had a talk this week with a man who is trying to improve the image of women drivers. This noble citizen is William J. Toth, professor of driver education at New York University, who came here to lecture on traffic safety at the National Police Academy. Toth has been retained by the Califorria Oil Co. to direct a campaign aimed at removing] the stigma that is associated with women drivers. (A stigma, my dear, - is a brand or mark of disrespect. 1 felt I should explain that for the benefit of women drivers who might think it is part of the carburetor.) I asked Toth how he expected to accomplish this feat and he said it was partly a matter of destroying certain myths that have developed over the years. Isn't Funny "In the first place," he said, "there is really nothing funny about a woman driving.a car." "Then how do you account for aU of those jokes about it?" I inquired. "Some of the jokes are pretty funny", Toth conceded, "but in most instances they are not based on fact Women are potentially as good at driving as men are. Maybe better. "In my classes, the best students both in skill and attitude are women. The trouble is that most women do not know anything about the vehicles they are operating. . "This is because ^Is do not normally take an interest in automobUes until they are old enough to drive. And even then they rarely learn anything beyond how to steer and shift gears. "If a car needs a quart of oil and the service station attendant asks what weight to put in, a woman driver is likely to ask 'What weights have you got?' Fill In Gaps "The purpose of our program is to fill in these gaps in her knowledge and understanding of cars and driving. We have prepared three bo(^ets titled 'How To Handle Simple Emergencies', "How Your Car Works' and 'How To Avoid Common Driving Blunders'. "Women drivers who absorb |this information will receive a purse-sized diploma and a supply of jokes- about men drivers.'! I asked Toth tty tell me some of the jokes about men drivers. He had trouble thinking of even one. Finally he said, "Do you know why those fellows who By Lyle C. Wilsoa Sea. Barry Goldwater saw trouble coming when Dwight David Eisenhower smote a stone on his Gettysburg farm and there rose up a genii that came to be known as the Republican Citizens Committee of the United SUtes. The trouble has arrived. The miracle of the genii took place on June 30, 1962. At the Eisenhower farin that day had assembled the first All-Republican conference or ARC. ARC sponsored the Republican Citizens Committee (RCC) and former President Eisenhower became honorary chairman of both groups. Goldwater promptly denounced Eisenhower's citizens committee, to a letter to GOP National Chairman William E. Miller, Goldwater said the leaders of the citizens group were the same individuals who had caused most of the current Republican party troubles, meaning election defeats. Goldwater said that he and other party leaders had been by - passed when RCC was formed. Progressive Step Ike replied that formation of ARC and RCC was the most progressive step the Republican party had taken in many years. The implication of the whole was that Ike • and - company were determmed that Eisenhower's soft-boiled Republicanism and not Goldwater's hard boiled conservatism should guide the party into and through the 1984 presidential campaign. RCC will make its first big move next week under command of Ike's brother. Dr. Milton S. Eisenhower. Dr. Milton will appear in Washington in his capacity as chairman of the Critical Issues Council to unveil the first of a series of critical issues papers. This first paper will be released next Tuesday, April 7. Others will be issued at intervals of about a week right up to the Republican National Convention next July. "The Critical Issues Council is organized," the announcement disclosed, "under .sponsorship of the Republican Citizens Committee of the United States, to conduct research, and articulate Republican - oriented positions on the great problems facing the people and government of the United States." The foregoing paragraph of gold-plated, S20 words is egghead talk for what would read in the speech of the common man, something like this. Would Rath«r Fight "Now hear this: Barry Goldwater and his conservatives can't get away with kidnaping the Republican partys' presidential nomination, writing its platform and otherwise taking over in 1964. We'd rather fight than switch to conservatism. Ike is on our side. Brother Milton ditto. No Republican nominee can be elected without Ike. So, prepare to read the critical issue papers carefully and to be guided by them when writing the Republican platform." Brother Milton's Critical Issues Council consists of a couple of dozen graduates of the Eisenhower cabinet and/or other associations with Ike's administrations. The council is salted with a few — very few — crcdentialed conservatives such as Lewis L. Strauss, chairman. Atomic Energy Commission, 1953 - 58. There is no political officeholder or candidate for public office on th» council. That means that these cinti- cal issues papers will be drafted independently of the congressional leadership of the Republican party. Senate Republican Leader Everett Dirksen and House Republican Leader Charles A. Hallcck probably will grin and bear it. Ike's citizens have whacked that pair before this and got away with it. Goldwater, however, may be expected to fight, perhaps alone. DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Food, emoriond upsets, are causes of distress By Dr. Wayne G. Brandsfadt Q—We live at an altitude of 4,600 feet Every weekend we spend a day at a lake that is at 6,200 feet While at the lake, we feel fine but on the way home we suffer from stomach gas. Does the alfitude cause this or is it the sugar in the coffee and the cookies we eat? A—There is always some gas in the stomach because of swallowed aur. Some people swallow great quantities of air in their attempts to belch. This is the commonest cause of gas in the stomach. Since gases tend to expand when air pressure decreases, you would -have more trouble with internal gas pressures when going up to the lake than on the return. Fermentation of sugars and starches in the intestines is a source of abdominal discomfort and bloating. The gas in the intestines causes pressure on the stomach and in that way may increase belching.

I haven't laughed so hard since that time my wife backed our new car into a fireplug. this fermentation usually occurs in the lower rather that the upper par of the intestinal tract, it usually involves foods eaten one or two days before the discomfort is felt That would rule out any cookies eaten on the day of returning home. Look for the cause in foods eaten earlier or in emotional upsets associated with returning to the old grind. Q — What are myocardial ischemia and hypochromic anemia? What can be done for them? A—When one of the small coronary arteries that nourishes the heart muscle (myocardium) becomes plugged through hardening of the arteries or a clot, it cuts off the blood supply to a part of the heart. That part is then said to be ischemic and the victim may have coronary heart disease or angina pectoris, depending on whether the circulation to the area is cut off completely or only partially. When it has been determined how severe the damage to the heart is — usually by an electrocardiogram — there is much yonr doctor can do to improve your health. There are several kinds o£ anemia. Hypochromic or iron- deficiency anemia is the type in which the hemoglobin (red coloring matter in the red blood cells) is deficient This is the only anemia for which iron salts are a specific cure. Q—My doctor says I have chronc nasopharyngitis. What is the cause and can it be cured? A—Nasopharyngitis is an inflammation of the area where your nasal passages join your throat. It may be caused by allergy (hay fever), a head cold or cronic exposure to smog. The treatment would depend on the cause but, like all chronic conditions, this one is hard to shake. Internationol health counci' formed SAN DIEGO (UPI) —A tocal health official Thursday announced formation of an international health council to step up the fight along the border against disease. Dr. Elmer M. Bingham, assistant county health director, said the council consists of personnel from Mexican agencies, the U.S. Public Health Service, the U.S. Navy, the San Diego County Health and Welfare Departments and volunteer groups.
