Pag* 20 REOLANDS, CALIFORNU APRIL 8, 1964 Human behavior is at the root of the United Nations What is the basic flaw in the United Nations? James S. Wadsworth holds an opinion on that which is worth attention. Back of his conclusion is about eight years of experience in the UN representing the United States, first as deputy and then as Ambassador. The almcKt automatic reply to his question is "Russia — that's what's ^vrong with the United Nations." And Mr. Wadsworth made it abundantly clear at the University of Redlands Monday evening that he is ready to agree that the U.S.S*R. accounts for a great hunk of international trouble. But Americans are blinded by Russia — they can't see beyond it to any other root cause, the former Ambassador finds. And so blinded, they fail to understand why the U.N. falls so far short of the performance that was promised to them when the Charter was being written at San Francisco in 1945. The trouble, he says, is individual people themselves — the people of whom governments are but an extension. "What people dread the most is to be called chicken," he says. "They resent slights, insults, threats. Often they react •hysterically urging their governments to invade . . . even to eradicate." Yet, when a man represents his country in the United Nations he finds that the delegates realize that it is best to get along with other countries. In the nuclear age, you simply have to. You can quarrel with another nation . . . you can disagi-ee ... but you don't shooL When the understanding that comes with international diplomatic . experience soaks down to the level of "just people" then the United Nations can become more of the organization that peace loving people yearn for. How long will it take? A long, long time, Mr. Wadsworth thinks, but we are" moving forward — not back. Ideas have legs The restoration of Lake Elsinore to its former status as a popular Southern California resort will set an example that will not be lost on other, resorts, troubled by low water in their lakes. One of these resorts is Bear Valley, a mountain commimily that shares with Redlands a vital interest in the ^vaters of the North Fork of the Santa Ana river. A reservoir exists at Bear Valley, on the north fork, because Judson and Brown needed the water supply for the place they had named Redlands. That was in 1884. Later, in 1912, a higher dam with much greater storage capacity was completed. Redlands water leadei-s consider our i-ight to the water ironclad by generations of beneficial use. But the mountain people have come in recent years to hold a deep conviction that their welfare is vitally affected by the lake, that they have a legitimate interest in it. A low level is bad for the resort and real estate buaness, they believe, and high level is a guarantee of prosperity. Recently they have created by popular vote a home-rule district which they hope will eventually be able to hold the lake at the highest level the natural precipitation will permit. Or, to put it another way — the aim of the district is to oppose withdrawals from the dam to supply Redlands. From the Redlands point of view the only possibility of accommodating both the mountain resort and our area ivill come with the arrival of so-called Feather River Water when the California Aqueduct is completed about 1972. The present situation is that Elsinore has been revived by a scheme which,, to a limited extent, is similar. Colorado River Water for Lake Elsinore was purchased from the Aletro- politan Water District by the State Park System. Now the Lake is a big attraction and Elsinore is seeing a wild, real estate boom Such ideas have legs. \Vhat is happening in Elsinore wiU kindle the optimism of Bear Valley busmess people that they, too can achieve full-lake prosperity.

By June you'll realize you can't afford it Now wie have an anthropologist who thinks man is 12 million years older than had been thought; a blow to the theory that age brings wisdom. One of the most fascinating of our multi-million-dollar industries is the one devoted to turning out equipment designed to make men almost as smart as fish. Florida communities stage dances to prevent rowdyism among holidaying college students. The trick is in telling the difference between the dancing and the rioting. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore Harold Marks of the Victor Gnien staff, lecturing on the problems of revitalizing Redlands' core area, said that Orange street is the stickiest puzzle. This street alone carries 40 per cent of the north-south traffic in the city center, he said, and constitutes a barrier to pedestrians walking on such cross streets as State and Citrus. "It. is unusual to have a major street cutting through the downtown but we could find no economically feasible way to reroute the traffic that uses it," he said. At first hearing Marks comment seemed to offer an ironic jest — a street that was designed to give great traffic service becoming a handicap to the business center it serves. But on second thought — where did he get the idea that major streets cutting a downtown area are rare? Banning was paralysed by U. S. 99 until the freeway took the through traffic away. San Bernardino has had E street as the main north-south traffic artery — until the freeway age. Colton was cut tA°o ways through the heart by major highways. Indeed, as we continue ticking off the towns we are inclined to believe Marks has it backwards. In our region the Orange street situation has been more the rule than the exception in cities along the Santa Ana river from Redlands to the sea. But let it go. Suppose that you agree with Marks — that Orange street is a curse. Docs that mean that the men who developed the town were less foresighted than current city planners? Could there logically have been several parallel streets that would have carried north-south traffic around the business center? First, we must say that t b c question is academic because the historic purpose of streets was to bring people into the trading center. You didn't want to go around the place where the general store, the hotel, the blacksmith shop and the r a i 1- road station were situated. So Orange street, originally serving Lugonia — now the north portion of Redlands — took people to about the intersection of Collon avenue. That's where the Lugonia business center sprang into being. When the upstart Redlands became planted about a half mile farther south, Orange became an important Lugonia - Redlands artery. But returning to our original question — could parallel streets have been developed in the founding days? — the answer is no. In the beginning, there were natural barriers. East o£ Orange street to Church there is a natural hump, the Terrace. It's not easy to put a city street over it and only one was ever . built. West of Orange for some distance the terrace takes the form of a low bluff—also discouraging to street construction. The ne.\t barrier to east-west streets was the Zanja, or irrigation ditch, dug by the Indians at the direction of the Franciscan fathers. This required bridges. Then came the raikoad tracks, closely m parallel — the Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe. It was far safer to have one major street for the trains to cross than to scatter the buggies, and later the cars, on minor streets. Finally, to get the fransconU- nental highway traffic off Citrus, Orange and Colton, in the city, what is now Redlands boulevard was constructed in the thirties. That also strengthened the series of barriers through the center of the' city. ^Vhen the freeway was built the engineers merely confirmed what they found on the. ground after some 70 years of Bed- lands. They placed their fill closely parallel to the barrier which was here before any ''Can He See Me Now?

In particular was I impressed by the wide variety of occupa lions covered by the program. They included jobs with such interesting titles as "stripper assistants," "ladle liners" and "barking machine operators.' I am not indebted to A. H. Cotton of Aberdeen, Wash., for providing a belated footnote. He informs me that barking ma' chines are used to peel logs for pulp mills. Ai)oth«r Occupation I might mention yet another occupation that I think could be added to the training program with good advantage. On any job classification chart it probably would be listed as "hint dropping." Hint droppers, who are. particularly active in the spring, engage in the preparation and distribution of helpful household hints, without which no homeowner could long survive. One of the largest employers, of hint droppers is the National Paint, Varnish and Lacquer Association. It sends out a steady stream of helpful household hints as a public service to newspapers and other publications. As a homeowner myself, I was pleased to find among its recent output a list of hints on how to guard against moisture damage to the interior of a house. Somt Hints Reutina Some of the hints—keep attic ventilated, open window when bathing, install exhaust fan in kitchen — were rather commonplace. But one was a real eye-opener. According to the association, moisture damage can be reduced or prevented R you 'eliminate phimbing leaks." It had never before occurred to me that leaky plumbing causes moisture and I was By Lyie C. Wilson Ghostly figures and shadowy issues haunt the major political parties in this presidential election year. The Republican spook is Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge. And here is one for the book. Lodge will be hexed by his own private haunt if he continues to run well in the pre-convention Republican contest. Lodge will be hexed by the memory of Robert A. Taft, the man whose nomination for President in 1952 was prevented by a little band of Eastern politicians among whom Lodge was a notable figure. Some of Uie Taft men of 1952 have died and others perhaps have phased out by now the fervor of their former commitment to the senator. But there are those who love him still, and remember. The memory of Lodge playing littie Jack-the- Giant-Killer to Taft's giant m 1952 probably will cost the ambassador some delegates in next July's Republican National Convention. A Long Shadow Meantime, Lodge haunts all other Republican aspirants. For a haunt. Lodge casts a long shadow. It extends now from New England to Oregon and California. Increasingly it is be- gmning to appear that it is to Lodge Uiat the soft boiled Re- publans shortiy must turn to cut down Sen. Barry Goldwater. The soft boileds will not be content merely with preventing Goldwater's nomination for President. They urgenUy desire to short circuit him away from any considerable influence on the party platform and on the nomination of a compromise presidential candidate. All of that is a bigger job than Lodge reasonably could be expected to undertake. If he does undertake it. Lodge is not likely to bring it off. Blocking Goldwater's nomination is one thmg, and within reason. Damming the tide of conservative ideas £rom flowing into the Republican platform is something else again. It wovdd be even more difficult for Lodge or any other to deprive Goldwater of the balance-of-power position he is beginning to occupy in Uic GOP presidential sweepstakes. The senator likely will have the most pledged delegates come July. If he can hold them and, finally, defiver them, Goldwater. can iring about the nomination of the man of his choice. That man is likely to be Richard M. Nixon, Wallace 's Candidacy Spooky is the word for the Republican Party. Less complicated is the spookery afflicting the Democrats. Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama is the official Democratic spook. He rode his broom for weeks in Wisconsin before Tuesday's presidential primary, crowding the Johnson Administration finally to panicky counters against the govemor's effort to put some thousands of Northern voters on record against the current trend in civil rights and the tactics of Negro leaders. From Wisconsin, Wallace will proceed to Maryland and Indiana where he also is entered in presidential primaries. Hundreds of angry pickets mshed Wallace in Kenosha, Wis., in the closing hours of the campaign, the pickets charged, swinging wildly with their staves. Wallace was cUpped on the head before police were able to move in. The obscurity of the Wallace incident was in contrast with national uproar after Adlai E. Stevenson similarly was whacked last October in Dallas, THE DOCTOR SAYS LSD. the 'mood drug,' is exceptionally powerful By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt (Firs! of two related articles) For many unstable persons, there is a certain fascination about taking drugs that pep you up, knock you out, or cause hal- lucmations or a dream state. Since time began, man has used such drugs as alcohol, morphine derivatives, hashish, ether, marijuana and loco weed for such purposes. In recent years, science has added amphetamine (Benzedrine), tranquilizers and, most recent of all, lysergic acid dimethylamide (LSD). None of these have solved man's fundamental problem — failure to appreciate being alive, alert and able to take nourishment.' It is not uncommon, therefore, to find that the type of person who experiments with one kind of jag will be a willing candidate for one or more of the others listed. Some of these cause tme addiction with punishing withdrawal symptoms. Others merely cause habituation or emotional dependence. Thus a person with neurotic tendencies may take a pep pill on arismg to get him started, a tranquilizer as the pressures of the day begin to bear in on him and a sleeping pill on retiring so that he can get some rest Since LSD is flje latest, most powerful, and least understood of the so-called mood drugs, let's see what it can do for those who use it.

Several students who decided to find out for themselves about LSD were hospitalized for several weeks after they took "an infinitesimal dose." Another user was kept in « mental institution for six months before making what may or may not be a complete recovery. The drug cannot be obtained legally except for experimental use. However, a vast black market has already sprung up in the larger cities to cater to those who want their kicks from drugs and who have not yet learned of the great potential dangers involved in using LSD.
