REDUNDS, CALIFORNIA Poge 16 APRIL 10, 1964 Out, damned spot Let them explain all they want Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama, got only 25 per cent of the vote in the Wisconsin Primary Tuesday. Gov. Wallace collected votes which were not for himself but against Gov. John W. Reynolds of Wisconsin with whom many of his constituents are angry. Gov. Wallace made a conservative pitch which appealed to many, quite apart from his views on race. Yes, yes, yes. But the fact remains that Gov. Wallace is a white supremacist, a do-or-die segregationist, a states' righter of the strongest stamp. He was not a legitimate entry in the Wisconsin primary and was only in the election to demonstrate that the Civil Rights issue cuts two ways in the North. And demonstrate he did. The 270,000 votes he collected in Wisconsin are handwriting on the \vall to be read from Coast to Coast The votes are a warning that Civil Rights demonstrations are at one time winning sympathy for the legitimate aims of the Negro people and creating a whiplash against them. They are a sign that wherever the issue arises, and in whatever form, Civil Rights is no shoo in. Wallace shows that it's not a case of the South, "No", and all of the rest of the countiy, "Yes". They are a straw in the wmd for California where a bitter controversy is guaranteed over the anti-Rumford initiative on the November baUot They are a question mark for the Democra- ic party, a doubt that Civil Rights may make many votes, against their candidates as well as for them. Say what they will publicly to e,\plain the 270,000 votes for this wild-eyed segi^gationist from Alabama, the Civil Rights opponents must say of that primary, in private, "out, damned spot." When was it mailed? The Post Office Department, whose annual operating deficits are as regular an event as the blossoming of the cherry trees around I the Tidal Basin, is usually fair game for criticism concerning its service to the public. Yet one recent innovation by the department has gone virtually imnoticed. Begjnmg Feb_„ ruary 1, the department stopped putting the mailing time inside the little postmark circle. Rep. Abner W. Sibal, Connecticut Republican, is about the only person in or out of government who has questioned this move. In a letter to the Christian Science Monitor, the congressman states that the timed postmark was not only a traditional service to the public but an important aid to many businesses and in many legal processes, as well as a necessity for election officials validating absentee ballots (which must be mailed by specified times). One also wonders what mail-contest judges will do when, in the event of a tie, "the entry with the eai-liest postmark %vill be the winner." Rep. Sibal protested to the Post Office Department "to no avail" and could not even find out how much money the alleged economy move was supposed to save. ^Vhen a member of the U. S. Congress is frustrated and reduced to \\Titing letters to the editor, what of the rest of us? The net result It was bound to happen, perhaps, and it did. A 17-year-old factory worker in England got his Beatle haircut caught in a machine. So the British Safety Coimcil has put out 50,000 safety posters ur^ng industrial workers to wear hairnets if they affect Beatle hairdos. We're strong for safety, but we don't believe this is going to work. It has taken American safety workers several 3-ears to persuade even a minority of drivers to wear seat belts, and we suspect by the time English Beatle buffs have been persuaded to wear hairnets the Beatles will have disappeared from the scene, hairdos and all. The Newsreel Luck is what explains the other fellow's success. Rockefeller challenges Heniy Cabot Lodge to come back from the front lines and fight As senator from Califorma, Pierre Salinger could keep e.xpenses down. There would seem, for one thing, little reason for him to hire a press secretary. The chairman of the board of General Motors drew a salary of $201,27o last year, which is $200 less than in 1962.

Jennings' Fortnightly club paper en the great East Highlands Orange company and its founder, the late J. 5. Edwards of Redlands.) "Unlike most orange growers, J. S. Edwards showed almost total unconcern for the picking of the oranges from bis groves. He was rarely to be seen around the picking crews. He was more likely to be out looking for new projects or new land to develop. "^Vhen I joined the company in 1925 in the lush years of the ciUiis industry. The trees had attained full production, were bearing heavily, and profits were good. Any grower who was not seen in a Cadillac was likely to be looked upon as a poor country cousin. "Profits of Uie East Highlands Orange company were spent in ways that could not be afforded today. In numerous locations massive rock walls, six to eight feet in height, were built on steep hillsides. Sufficient land was leveled above to accomodate single rows of trees, terraced one row above another. The leveling had to be done laboriously with teams of horses and scrapers. "Several acres of orchard land was constructed on the spot This was accomplished by the unusual method of sluicing dirt from the hills by hydraulic 'mining' and transporting the mud a half mile or so. This was done by means of natural drainage channels and by pipelines. The liquid soil was settled behind dams of earth-filled sacks placed across the arroyo. "A fire hose and nozzle, fed by gravity water, was used to loosen the good earth from the hillside. The sluicing hose was under terrific pressure so that it was very difficult for a man to hold it. "The nozzleman was startled one day when he heard a loud bang. A solid object had been ejected like a bullet. Upon investigating he was amazed to discover that a fair sized trout had been forced through the small opening. A stranger way to go fishing has never been devised. "It was during these flush times that the roadway for some quarter of a mile below the ranch headquarters (in the vicinity of Cram school) was paved with such a thick layer of concrete that the surface is still in excellent condition after 35 years of fruit hauling. "Mr. Edwards was such a lover of trees that he refused to remove a large sycamore that stood squarely in the middle of the road at the south end of the pavement Although this tree has been run into several fimcs, it still stands, a challenge to passing traffic." "There are 110 different orchard units of greaUy varying sizes in the East Highlands property of the company. Some of them have been known since the early days by odd names which are often a souce of amusement to visitors. "Such names as Stingaree, the Duckfoot pieces, Hell's Half Acre and Stony Point all originated from natural reasons, but they do sound odd to the first time visitor." "In the spring of each year during the 1920s there was a great influx of mouths to feed on the ranch for many teamsters were hired, just for plowing. Every grove was plowed both ways with teams of horses and turning plows in order to cultivate under the weeds. "It was a gigantic job on 700 acres. Shortly after 1928 this procedure was abandoned in favor of deep-cutting, team- drawn discs." (Concluded tomorrow) I Shall Return— Woshinqton Window Spending, debt ahead of last year By Lyie C.

TELEVISION Government spending, tax collections and the public debt in the current 1961 fiscal year are running well ahead of a year ago. When the Treasury closed its books on the first nine months of fiscal '64, it reported withdrawals of $94 billion, deposits of $87.1 billion and a public debt of $310 billion. That was as of March 31. The corresponding figures for the first nine months of fiscal '63 were: withdrawals $89.6 billion; deposits $81.7 billion; pub- Uc debt $303 bilUon. Withdrawals approximate government spending. Deposits approximate tax collections. The public debt shows precisely how much beyond its income the government has been living. Interest on the public debt is estimated to be $10.7 billion this year. Spending and debt trends definitely are upward. This is a Kennedy - Johnson fiscal year for which neither President is wholly responsible. ' President Johnson holds that he has made big reductions in expenditures originally planned for fiscal 1965. Republican critics contend that this has been achieved more by artistic bookkeeping and by shifting expenditures into the current fiscal year than by true economy. The outcome of this argument will be determined large- BERRY'S WORLD FRIDAY NIGHT 5:00_ 7—Hawaiian Eye 9—Engmeer Bill 11—Superman 13—Thaxton's Hop 5:30— 5—Whirlybirds 11—Mickey Mouse (Hub 5:40— 4—Believe it or Not 5:45-4, 13-News 6:00— 2, 7—News 5-You Asked For It &—Maverick 11—Wanted—Dead or Alive 13—Touche Turtle (C) 6:30— 4. 5, 11—News 13—MagiUa Gorilla (C) 6:45— 7—News 7:00— 2—News 4—Curt Massey (C) 5—Leave it to Beaver 7—Lawbreaker 9—People Are Funny 11—Movie 13—Ripcord 7:30— 2—Great Adventure 4—Intn'l Showtime (C) 5—Lawman 7—DestiT 9—Deputy 13—Human Jungle 8:00— 5—Seven Keys 9-Movie (C) 8:30- 2-Route 66 4—Ernie Ford (C) 5—Name That Song 7—Burke's Law 13—Mystery Theater 9:00— 5—Detectives 11—Checkmate 9:30- Z-TwiUght Zone 4—That was the Week That Was 5—Movie 7—Price Is Right 13—Rebel 9:45— 9—News 10:00— 2—Alfred Hitchcock 4-Jack Paar (C) 7—Boxing 9—Movie 11, 13-News 10:30—13—Harbor Command 11:00— 2. 4, 5, 7—News 11—Movie 13—Boston Blackie 11:15— 4—Johnny Carson (C> 11:30- S-Movie 5—Steve Allen 7—Laramie 13—Movie SATURDAY DAYTIME 9:00- 2-Alvin 4-Hector Heathcote (c) 7—Movie 11—Superman 13-Panorama Latino 9:30_ 2—Tennessee Tuxedo 4-Fu:d)all XL-5 5-Movie 11—Blast Off 10:00— 2—Quick Draw McGraw 4— Dennis the Menace 9—Movie 11—Youth Awards 10:30— 2—lUghty Mouse 4—Fury 7—Jetsons 11—Movie 11:00— 2—Rin Tin Ito 4—Sergeant Preston 5—Califomians 7—Casper 13—Variedades 11:30— 2—Roy Rogers 4—Bullwinkle (C) 5—Movie 7—Beany and Cecil 9—Mr. District Attorney 12:00— 2-Sky King 4—Exploring (C) 7—Bugs Bunny 9—Movie 11—Movie 13—Money in Real Estate 12:30— 2—Do You Know? 7—American Bandstand 13—Fore (Jolfers 1:00— 2—News 4—American Quiz 5—Movie 1.3—Bowling 1:30— 2—TeU it Again 4—Agriculture U.S.A. 7—Movie 13—Movie 1:45- 9-News 1:55— 9-Golf Tip 2:00— 2—Masters Golf 4—Paging Parents a-Movie 11—Movie 2:30- 4-World of Ornamentals (C) 5—Movie 3:00— 2—As Others See Us 4-Teacher '64 11-Tennis-UCLA-USC 13—Movie 3:30— 2—Repertoire Workshop 4-Profile 7—Pro Bowlers Tour 9—Championship Bowling 4:00— 2—Los Angeles Report 4—Greatest Headlines 5—TV Bowling Tournament 4:15— 4—Meet Your Council 4:30— 2—Scholarquiz 4—NBC Sports Special 9-Movie 13—Movie LIGHTER SIDE On taxing bubbles By DICK WEST "I th'iak I should warn yeu not to ignore mt aitf mon .., I'm a karato expert!" WASHINGTON (UPI)-If you have a yen to join a rebellion, to join, I may be able to help you out. I can put you in touch with Richard Calvert, wine editor of the Beverage Retailer weekly, who appears to be trying to instigate a "bubbles tax rebellion." Calvert raised the banner of effervescent sedition this week in a series of "open letters" addressed to Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon and published in the Congressional Record. His flaming episUes, which stamp Calvert as "The Tom Paine of the Vineyards," were directed at the $3.40 per galbn excise tax that the federal government imposes on sparkling wines. Tax en Bubbles Since the tax on still wine is only 17 cw.ts a gallon, and since the alcoholic content of both types is the same, the levy on sparkling actually amounts to a tax on bubbles, Calvert asserted. This he labelled as unjust, incomprehensible, inconsistent, discriminatory, tmrealistic and an exercise in "fantastic ludicrousness." Besides that, it hampers the sale of champagne. \Vhen a situation exists where "each and every bubble appearing in a bottle of wine has to be literally counted before arriving at a suitable tax rate, it may well be time for an aroused citizoiry to think about starting a wine bubbles tax rebellion," Calvert wrote. If I may be permitted to summarize his arguments, and perhaps give the rebellloa a rallying cry, Calvert seems to be saying that the excise on the bubbles is a case of "taxation without intoxication." Each citizen will have to decide for himself whether to support the bubbles tax uprismg. As for me, I regard the taxing of bubbles as no more illogical than most other federal revenue activities. Not Uniform The fault, it my view, lies in the fact that the tax is not uniformly applied. I deem it unfair to place a levy on wine babbles white allowing other types of bubbles to go untaxed. Soda water and ginger ale, for example, are fiz^. Yet for some reason the govanment has never regarded their bubbles as taxable. Another potentially important but currently neglected, source of revenue is bubUe gum. The Treasury could request the National Bureau of Standards to determine the maximum num- ly on the final figures for fiscal 1955, which will not be available until after June 30 of that year. Meantime, there is a Ted-ink flood tide. John F. Kennedy took office as President on Jan. 20, 1962. On Jan. 19 that year—Uie last day of the second Eisenhower administration—the public debt was ap- proximateUr $290 billion. The 1961 interest was approximately $8.9 billion. Makes Cempariien From the day JFK took office to the day he was shot, the public debt increased to $307.7 billion. From that latter day until March 31 of this year, the public debt increased to $310 billion. The Johnson budget estimates that interest on the public debt in the current fiscal year will be $10.7 billion and tiiat it will rise to $11J. billion next year. This is likely to prove to be an underestimate. To comprehend the enormity of the cost of the interest burden imposed by the public debt, consider: The average annual expenditure in each of the four years of Franklin D. Roosevelt's first New Deal ad- ministiration was only S6.5 billion. In fiscal years 1933-34-3536, FDR spent $26.1 bilLon and he was beginning to be denounced as a spendthrift president DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Breathing ills commoner than previously suspected By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt Q—For sue months, I have had spells of what my doctor calls hyperventilation syndrome. What causes it and what can I do to get rid of it? A—Your condition is much commoner than we doctors used to think. The person who hyperventilates gets spells of breathmg too fast and too deeply. This is usually due to nervous tension and is more common in women than in men. When there is an emotional crisis the hyperventilation does not occur untU the crisis has passed.

As Calvert so succinctly pomted out, "bubbles are bubbles." If this be treason, make the most of it times so slightly increased in . depth and frequeiicy as not to be noticable, washes too much' carbon dioxide out of the blood, thereby creating a condition known as alkalosis. Hyperventilation is hard for a doctor to recognize because it may cause a wide variety of symptoms. In some persons it causes a severe chest pain that may be mistaken for a heart attack. In another, it may cause pains similar to those of gall bladder, colic or arthritis. It may cause muscular twitchmg and fainting and be falsely labeled epilepsy or it may cause a victim to talk loudly and stagger as though drunk. The manifestations are often limited to one side of the body, usually the left side in right-handed persons. No drug is required to relieve the attacks, but prompt relief can be had by breathing into a paper bag held tightly over the nose and month or by merely holding your breath as long as you can. You should train yourseU to avoid yawning or sighing. Incidentally, fainting, when it occurs, automatically stops an attack. Q—Is there any medication for waterloggmg, especially in . Uie ankles? A—Your edema can he due to various causes. If a leaky heart valve has resulted in a decompensated heart, your doctor may want yon to take one of the digitalis preparations. Whatever the cause, ha may also want to ^ve you one of the newer diuretics. These drugs help to draw fluid froa the waterlogged tissues and excrete it through tiie kidneys. Q—What can I do to relieve a burning sensation in my feet? I am 52 years old and stand on a cement floor about 10 hours a day. A—It is often hard to get rid of this complaint In some victims multivitamin preparations have been helpful. You should, if possible, get off your feet for five or ten minutes every hour. Make sure your shoes are not tight in any dimension. Wear socks of a soft fabric and change them daily. Foot powder on the sWn and dusted into your shoes may give some comfort THE ALMANAT Today is Friday, April 10, the 101st day of 1964 with 265 to follow. The moon is approaching its new phase. The morning star is Saturn. Tae evening stars are Venus and Merctn7. On this day in history: In 1841, Horace Greeley published Uie first issue of tiie New York Tribune. In 1945, the infamous Nazi concentration camp at Buchenwald was liberated by Uie U.S. 80th Division. In 1962, an increase in steel prices so angered President Kennedy that he stepped in and forced the boost to be wiped, out In 1963, the atomic submarine "Hireshtt" sank in the Atlantic with 129 men aboard, in the Navy's worst peacetime submarine disaster. A Uioaght for the day: English writer Samuel BuUer onca said: "A hen is only an egg's way of making another egg."
