Pagt 16 REDUNDS, CALIFOitNU APRIL 11, 1964 World is oyster for U.S. woman Spring is a fitting time to pay a tribute to the fair sex by passing on some remarks made a few weeks ago by Mrs. Katie Louchheim of the State Department As deputy assistant secretary for community advisory services, Mrs. Louchheim has been in a position to note the surprise of foreign visitors when they encounter the American woman in her natural habitat "Before they come to the United States," says Mrs, Louchheim, "they have a mental image of the American woman living in idleness, pushing buttons to activate her innumerable electric servants. "Instead, they find her out ringing doorbells to raise money for the United Fund, the Heart Drive, the Lighthouse. She sits on the boards of community organizations. She carries trays in hospitals, exercises handicapped children in clinics . . . "The community's welfare activities depend on her. It has been estimated that the hours of work freely given by our women volunteers would cost many millions of dollars if they had to be paid for. They are a priceless service to the community and to the nation." Nor is woman's work limited to volunteer services. Mrs, Louchheim herself is an example of the many women in business, politics, government Incidentally, the latter, she says, offers almost limitiess opportunities to women. In the State Department alone, 7 per cent of the 5,000 members of the Foreign Service are women. There are two women deputy assistant secretaries and three women in the important post of office director. Of only sLx career ambassadors, one is a woman. Miss Frances Willis of Redlands. In 1963, there were 29 counselors or first secretaries of embassies, 22 second secretaries and 60 third secretaries. "American women," says Mrs. Louchheim, "are living and working all over the globe, as Foreign Service officers, as Peace Corps volunteers, as AID technical experts, as the wives of technical advisers or Foreign Service officers . . . "For today's American woman, the community is not only her town, her city or even her nation. Her community is the world." Prayerful decision The U.S. Supreme Court decisions banning state-composed or state-ordered prayers and Bible reading in the public schools have resulted in a batch of proposed amendments to tile Constitution. No less than 146 congressmen have introduced bills to modify the First Amendment to permit religious exercises in the schools. The House Judiciary Committee \vill begin hearings soon. Polls have shown that the overwhelming majority of Americans oppose the Supreme Court's stand. Because of this, it is often asked why these millions of citizens should be forced to bow to the wishes of the handful of persons involved in the com! cases. This ai-gument has two edges, however. It is usually overlooked that at the time of the coiut's most recent decision, 38 states of the Union did not require religious activities in the public schools. Many states absolutely forbid them. Of the 12 states requiring religious exercises, eight have so far defied the court's ruling. It may be asked whether a change In the Bill of Rights, the first since it was adopted in 1791, may not result in eight states having forced at least 38 states to adopt practices they have heretofore not deemed necessary or even desirable. Goulash Communism A new term has entered the vocabulary — "the goulash school of communism," referring to Nikita Khrushchev's new emphasis on providing a full dinner pail of goulash in every garage, or something like that, for the long-suffering Russians. This is not to be confused with "an old galosh;" which is what Mao Tse-tung once called Mr Khrushchev. The Newsreel The Eiffel tower is only 75 years old. Before that tourists who wanted to be sure they were in Paris had to ask somebody.

We admire people who always speak their minds, except that so often they have such dull ones. A smart aleck wire service says of a Russian lady basketball player that she "has a sweet smile but looks something like Primo Camera." As \ve recall, Primo Camera had a sweet smile. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore This column is one in • series from a Fortnightly Club paper by Robert F. Jennings on the East Highlands Orange company and its founder, J. S. Edwards.) "In 1928, thanks to the series of profitable years, Mr. Edwards held a big ceremony for the burning of the mortgage on the ranch. The employes, stockholders and directors and their wives all gathered in the ranch dinbg room for dinner. Afterwards the crowd assembled around a big bonfire in the yard nearby. "Mr. Edwards made a short speech, appropriate to such an auspicious occasion, after which the mortgage was thrown into the fire and burned. It was a red letter day for Uie East Highlands Orange company. "Times had not always been so beneficent In fact, during much of his long career, J. S. Edwards had been desperately in debt. The years of bringing the young groves into bearing, and of expanding his holdings, had sometimes strained his financial resources to the utmost. "But wilh the burning of the mortgage in 1928, the Orange company was not destined to be free of debt for long. Jlr. Edwards was soon looking around for ways of expanding his operations. Withm two years the purchase of the 550 acre Sunrise Ranch at Greenspot had been consumated and he was back in debt again and happy about it. "He explained his philosophy to me one day in words that gave me serious cause for thought. It had been my habit to consider a debt as something akin to a curse and something not to be contracted it it could possibly be avoided, "Mr. Edwards said, 'Every young man should be in debt. It gives him an incentive to work hard and to get ahead in life that he would not have otherwise.' He lived by this philosophy and was greatly rewarded." "During the developmental years of the big ranch at East Highlands, J. S. Edwards installed an elaborate system of waste ditches to conserve t h e precious water. "Waste water Icavmg the lower ends of the furrows is directed into a concrete ditch that enables the water to be delivered to some other grove at a lower elevation. Or, if desired, the waste water from much of the higher portion of the ranch can be diverted into a very large reservoir near Uie center of the property. "This articifial lake was constructed by moving sufficient dirt with teams and scrapers, to erect an earth dam around the lower end of a broad ravine. When full it measures perhaps 100 yards across and 250 yards long. "It is filled each spring before the start of the irrigation season with surplus water from the mountain streams in which the Orange company holds right. "The lake, while a most valuable part of the over-all irrigation system has, unfortunately, been a problem. What more attractive bait for the young fi-y, particularly on hot summer days, than a fine large body of water in which to swim? "Even when the water has dropped to a very low level, and has become rather green and covered witli a scum of algae, the resulting foul smell is insufficient to deter some of the hardy swimmers. "At least three boys have lost their lives in the reservoir. The area is posted and is closely watched and regularly patrolled to prevent any trespassing, lest another tragedy occur. "I'm afraid the young fry are most unappreclative of these efforts in their behalf. They would much prefer to live dangerously, for some of them still try to sneak in for a.surrepti­ tious dip."

By Neil Morgan LA PAZ, Baja California — One day soon, the nnlikeliest ot an mule trains is due to straggle into this remote Mexican seaport Its riders left Tecate, on the United States border about 70O air miles to the north, last Dec. 1. Despite the view of Indian opinion along the length of this wilderness peninsula, the riders are not insane. They are intent on fraveling the length of this largely unexplored wilderness peninsula in much the same way that Fr. Ju- nipero Serra, a Franciscan priest, did it in 1769 when he established the first white settlement in Caiflomia at S a n Diego. This expedition was organized by Joanne Alford, a San Diego engmeer and former beauty contest wmner. She is leadmg it, along with Andrew Meling, a canny Baja California native whose family operates a cattle ranch south of Ensenada-. Among the riders are two other girls: Eva Ewing, the pretty young daughter of a Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientist; and ilrs. Catid Barton, wife of a Navy helicopter pilot. Along for much of the tedious journey have been Scot Macbeth a Carmel geologist; and Dr. Reid Moran, a botanist with the Museum of Natural History in San Diego. "This is the last frontier of Mexico," explained Miss Alford when the tedious journey began four-and-a-half months ago. "It is ravaged by drought and untouched by modem communications. We want to see and study the remote parts of the peninsula as intimately as can be done only by foot or pack frain, and to talk with its people." When the mule fram reached Mulege recently, the riders were two-thirds of the distance down the peninsula. Their goal is Cape San Lucas, south of La Paz at the tip of Baja California. Cape San Lucas is a 40-minute flight by private plane from La Paz; it may take the mule frain another month to cover the same distance. Business and personal affairs have forced some of the riders to return; others, like Miss Ewing, have flown back to the United States to attend to their affafrs and then flown southward again to rejoin the mule frain. Photographers have accompanied the group on various legs of their journey. At last report, there were mne riders headed out of Mulege southward past Concepcion Bay on the Gulf of California coast, crossing the narrow peninsula to the Pacific Coast at the vil- lege of Comundu, and taking the old mission fratt across the awesome Sierra de la Giganta mountain range. A handwritten report from Miss Alford, flown out of Mu­ lege, gives some suggestion of the urgency of their progress: "Snake season is quickly coming on us. Indians have warned us to be exfremely careful at night because of rabid animals of every type, and an abundance of mountain lions. In Comumdu we will buy new burros to give some of our mules a rest, which they desperately need. We will pick up other supplies later at Loreto." Loreto, more than 300 miles north of La Paz by the route the mule frain is following, was once the capital of all California. It was the site of the mission from which Father Serra set out for what is now California, U.S.A. On an average day the mule frain moves about 1 miles; some days only five miles could be covered. Throughout much of the journey, water for mules and burros has been reached only oa alternate days. North of the Bay of Los Angeles, the train fraveled three days and two nights without water, and the animals still show the sfrain of that period. Feed has been so sparse that the riders cut branches of mesquite and palo verde for their stock at night, and allow them to roam in search of feed. "At first they would fravel up to 20 miles during the night trying to return to their homes; we lost three of our mules and our bell horse in that way," Misj Alford writes. One mule died in a fall from a cliff and another was killed by a mountain lion. In leaving Mulege, the riders took 14 mules and eight burros. "There is usually some comical side to it all," Miss Alford writes. "Our guitar had ridden safely aboard the packs for over 700 miles. But it was smashed when the mule carrying it fell from a steep fraiL We left its remains in a mesquite free for future archaeologists to study." Miss Ewing writes that "our food is mostly beans, canned vegetables, a few canned meats, flour tortillas, jerky and wild game. We have eaten dove, quail, rabbit and gone clam digging. We have resisted two attempts to infroduce us to cooked cow and goat heads." Wisconsin issues warning to Democrats By Doris Fleeson I NURSING BRUISES JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (UPI) I— Princee Way nursed the bruises on her face today that should have belonged to someone else. She told police she was walk- ling downtown Wednesday when a man began beating her with his fists. Suddenly he stopped and said: "Oh, you're not her. I'm sorry." Then he fled. WASHINGTON — Wisconsin has warned Democrats that they can take nothing for granted in the effort to elect President Johnson this fall and enact his programs. It has re-emphasized to Republicans that they are deeply involved in an internal revolution, with a well-financed right wing aiming for absolute control and imresponsive to pleas for unity with the forces of moderation. These are the long-run aspects of the state Presidential primary which fotmd one quarter of Wisconsin voters choosing Gov. George Wallace of Alabama, an outright segregationist Wallace's goal is to upset the pending civil rights bill by demon- sfrating that a large body of protest against it exists outside of Uie SouUi. Wisconsin politicians in both parties argue that if thefr primary was a civU rights test, the voters were for civil rights 3 to 1. They find more provocative the question of who voted for the invader from the strife-torn South and why they did it. The Milwaukee Journal concedes that the Wallace percentage exceeded expectations but points out that Gov. John Reynolds, standing for President Johnson, got the highest Presidential primary vote in history. The biggest Republican crossover on record contributed to this paradox. The Journal suggests that it is "open to conjecture" why they made this transition, which is painless and without penalty in Wisconsin. Light is shed by an examination of the returns locally and by district It is inescapable that Reynolds got support from Republican moderates alert to thefr right-wing adoption of Wallace. The Stii District Congressman, John Byrnes, ran as the Republican favorite son in order to take an uncommitted delegation to the national convention. He had won re-election handily in 1962, nearly 2 to 1. In Tuesday's primary, Reynolds passed him in the 8th with 44,492 votes to Byrnes' 40,294. But the securely Republican district still gave Wallace 22,009 votes. Wisconsm has a new district in the 9th, deliberately carved out to contain the rich Republican suburb of Milwaukee and areas equally prosperous. The untested 9th has the highest per capita income and the highest educational level of any ia the state. It is, in short, a silk- stocking district Reynolds prevailed there with 52,000 votes, but Wallace came in second with 45,000, his highest percentage of the Democratic vote in any district Byrnes frailed with 33,000 votes, Wallace also carried Wan- watosa city, believed impregnably Republican, with Byrnes second and Reynolds tiurd. Such figures illumine the Republican dilemma and the in- fransigence of the prosperous conservative who does not like the dfrection the country is taking. Wallace will attempt to push his advantage in the Indiana and Maryland primaries next month. The details of how he did it in Wisconsin fascinate the politicians more than his claims that it was a vote in support of segregation, which they do not believe.
