10-Monday, Apr. 13,1964 Redlands Daily Pacts Scraiiton seems totally unwilling By Doris Fleeson , WASHINGTON - Gov. WU- liara Scranton of Pennsylvania is tlie Everest candidate of the Republican National Convention. If it' deadlocks, he'll be there, aloof and mysterious, available only if the delegates are moved by the spirit of moderation to call his name. Further than that he see?is totally unwilling to go. He prefers the risk of starting a Presidential campaign as an unknown outside the East to becoming another abrasive factor in the bitter struggle of control of the party. Scranton has never really deviated from this position. He has confided that if drafted, he would wage a "rough, tough" campaign because it would be the only way to win, but he has never admitted to a rude desire to make the race. Gov. George Wallace's surprising 25 per cent of tlie Wisconsin Presidential primary total did not move Scranton, nor does it affect Scranton's chances within the limits the Pennsylvanian himself imposed on his ambition. Yet the Alabama segregation- Citizens of Redlands How would you like to own a good participating interest in a 180 million dollar corporation? This is the approximate market value of all real estate in our town. If we own a lot or a home or a business in Redlands we are a participating owner in the corporation, the City of Redlands. If we do not own, but rent an apartment or home here, we still participate in Redlands benefits or detractions. Jlost of us live in Redlands because we like it here. It is clean, beautiful, and probably the most friendly town in the U.S.A. That is what makes Redlands stock so valuable and desirable. It is good to own a share of it. There arc approximately 8,500 families participating in the ownership of o u r town. This makes the average family investment about 515,000 to 525,000. If Redlands is kept clean and progressive the value of any investment we may have here will grow in accordance. Redlands is governed by five City Councilmen, of which one is Mayor. We might say they are our board of directors. If this were a business corporation we could vote only in accordance with our actual cash investment. In free America though, the vote of all registered voters counts the s a m e, whether we own any stock in our town or not. Tne selection of our board of directors is very mportant. We elect them to make our laws and^ govern our town. Their pay is negligible. The city councilmen get $25.00 per month, the mayor 550.00 per month. This figures about 50 cents an hour or less for their working time on the job. Their true compensation comes in pride of a civic obligation well done. These are the men we are choosing to head up and run our ISO million dollar city corporation. We will vote for two of them Tuesday. The next competitive thing on the ballot is the "Measure submitted to vote of voters". In reading the measure it talks about sanitation, and getting a graduate Doctor of Medicine or a graduate Sanitation Engineer for a supervisor. It then says that anyone can bury their garbage on their lot any place in town. How could this be supervised? No other city in California allows promiscuous burial of garbage in their city limits. They talk of optional, rather than universal participation in pick-up and cost. This would automatically increase cost per stop. The measure makes no provi' sion for hardship cases as does our present law. To invite competition to t h e equipment we already have bought and paid for, (5100,000 •worth), would be to raise our cost per pickup. If the fee did not cover, it would have to come from the ta.xes we pay. To Sum Up To prohibit burial of garbage all over tott-n (a health hazard) — vote NO. In order to keep Redlands clean — vote NO. In consideration of folks who can't pay — vote NO. In order to protect j-our in vestment in Redlands — vote NO. In order to save money on operation — vote NO tomorrow, (Tuesday). ist has set the cat among the pigeons with respect to the other Republican contenders, who must state a reaction or have it stated for them because they are candidates. The prob^ lem is solved for Democrats, as President Johnson has come all the way for civil rights. At first glance. Sen. Barry Goldwater appears to have gained in the demonstration .that civil rights can be cxplos- jive outside the South. He is not a segregationist, nor does he admire Wallace. But he [stresses conservatism and states' rights, as Wallace did in Wisconsin. Other Republican candidates are civil rights advocates in greater or less degree, and I none have retreated. Richard |Ni.\on has, however, warned of what Wallace in part proved, which is that Northern voters might take alarm if civil rights demonstrations lead to violence. But it is being argued by Republican moderates that Goldwater will suffer from being identified, even at arm's length, with those to whom the Alabama Governor is accept able. They insist Wallace can bring the Senator no strength not already in the Goldwa|ter camp. Wallace is heading East by way of the Indiana primary .May 5 and will next display Ihimself under the noses of the Senate in the Maryland pri- .mary May 19. Political factors [in lioth states suggest he can do better in both than he did in Wisconsin. Indiana is regarded as the most Southern state outside the South. Only a few Southern states bowed more deeply to .the Ku Klux Klan in the '20s, [and more recently it sent William Jcnner to the Senate for 14 years. Jcnner was unofficial 1 chief of staff to the late Sen. [Joseph McCarthy. The state is new Democratic, with the Governor and two Senators, but strong conservative forces re[main in politics and in the 'press. IMaryland has been bitter and violent civil rights struggles, which may become worse with the advent of Wallace. As in Wisconsin, both moderate Rc- 1 publicans and Democrats are trymg to fend him off. (Copyright, 1964. by United Feature Syndicate, Ific.) Quarter-million signatures on prayer bill PASADENA (UPI) — Proponents of a bill to reverse a Supreme Court decision regarding use of the Bible and prayers in public schools said today they have about a quarter - million signatures for presentation to Congress urging action on the measure. Dr. Robert Kofahl, first vice president of the American Council of Christian Churches of California, explained that the aim of the campaign is to force a vote in Congress on a bill introduced by Rep. Frank J. Becker, R-N.'Sf., which would "guarantee the right of Bible reading and prayer in any public school, institution or place." Kofahl said various religious groups, including the Interna tional Christian Youth, started collecting signatures last Sept ember in communities through out the nation. He said the bill was introduced a year and a half ago, but has been "bottled up" in the house Judiciary Committee. 'At stake is not simply the question of reading the bible in schools," said Kofahl. 'As the Becker amendment acknowledges, it is whether or not the United States may con tinue officially to give honor and respect to God. 'Those who have succeeded in casting the Bible out of school have vowed that they will not stop until they have God out of the Pledge of Allegiance, Chaplains out of the Armed Forces, Prayer out of Congress, Bibles out of the courts, and the last verse out of the 'Star Spangled Banner.'"

(UPI) James Roosevelt Jr., grandson of the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt, has become a member of the Christian Brothers, a Roman Catholic teaching order. Brother Jerome, western provincial of the order, said Saturday that the 19-year-old son of Rep. James Roosevelt, D-Calif., is studying to become a brother at the Christian Brothers' novitiate in nearby Napa County. Young Roosevelt's mother is a Roman Catholic and he was reared in that faith. Looking back on Oscar nights of other yeors By VERNON SCOTT UPI Hollywood Corrcspondtnl HOLLYWOOD (UPI)- Here's some stuff about the Oscars that most of tonight's winners and losers will have forgotten, if indeed they ever knew. The very first winners back in 192S were Emit Jannings for the Way of AU Flesh" and Janet Gaynor for "Seventh Heaven." The winning picture was "Wings." The losers that year still glow with greatness— Richard Barthelmess and Charlie Chaplin among the actors; and Lou ise Dresser and Gloria Swanson among the actresses. Academy Awards members had a fit in 1944 when Barry Fitzgerald was nominated for best actor and best supporting actor of the same role, that of the doughty old priest in "Going My Way." Bing Crosby won the Oscar for best actor in that picture, Fitzgerald took the supporting trophy. Thereafter the rules were changed. Only once has there been a tie and two Oscars parceled out for the best acting award. The year was 1932. The winners were Wallace Beery (The Champ) and Frederick March (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde). Walter Brennan is the only triple actor winner in the his tory of the Oscars, having won best supporting awards in 1936, 1338 and 1940. Another first occurred in 1940 when two foreigners copped the top acting awards — Vivien Leigh for "Gone With The Wind" and Robert Donat for "Goodbye Mr. Chips." First president of the Motion Picture Academy was Douglas Fairbanks Sr. The first awards party was held at the Ctocoanut Grove with the Oscars (nameless statuettes at that time) being handed out after a fancy dinner and several roimds of booze. Lionel Barryraore ran off with the best actor award in I 1931 while one of his compefi tors, Jackie Cooper, was sound asleep on Marie Dresaler's lap. Perhaps the zaniest award was the writing Oscar in 1959 when the winner was Robert Rich for "The Brave One." No one knew Rich and he wasn't there to pick up the award for the very good reason that Robert Rich was the pen name ofj black-listed Dalton Trurabo. In the 36-year history of the Oscar race no actor has managed to win both best actor award and best supporting ac tor, although many performers have been- nominated in both categories. As coveted and cherished as the Oscars are to movietown's hams and hamsters, it is jolt ing to realize just how fleeting fame can be.
