REDLANOS, CALIFORNIA Pagt 10 APRIL 18, 1964 World has new behavior rule One of the dinches of our time is that "nuclear bombs have made wai unthinkable" — unthinkable' in the sense that we can no longer fall back on armed force to settle international arguments. Too much — if not all — of human life and human civilization would be wiped out Actually, the immense distructive power of the atom has forced men to think about i\'ar as they never have before in history, and in this fact lies hope for the future. In the stable world of 1914, after a century without a major international conflict,' war was also "unthinkable." But the tragic fact was that because the leaders of that day did not think about war and its consequences, war came. Its results are part and parcel of the crises we face today. The first child of 1914 was World War D. Its grandchild is the Cold War, whose specter of atomic Armageddon has been chilling our bones for these nearly 20 years. Suddenly — but not accidentally — it may be that something resembling real peace is breaking out President Johnson recently called for "reasoned agreement instead of ready aggression" in dealing with world problems. ITiere is nothing new about this lofty idea, of course. It is as old as war itself. What is new is that it is no longer a plati- • tude but is becoming a rule of international behavior. Despite Cyprus, Viet Nam, Berlin and a dozen other old and new points of friction between East and West, the world has moved steadUy back from the nuclear precipice it stood on during the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. This does not mean that the possibility of war has ceased to exist and we need no longer worry about it, or that the Communists have abandoned their goal of making the world unsafe for democracy. There is still plenty of unrest in the world, and the Communists are trying and %vill continue to try, to profit from it. But more and more fi^uently they are being brought up short by the "Stop" sign of nuclear war. More and more, internal dissension is racking the Communist world itself — the Chinese-Russian feud, Russia's economic troubles, tlie growing independence of the Eastern European satellites. More and more, communism is being forced to compete with demoa-acy against a backgi'ound of general peace. And it is in peace that democracy thrives. As President Johnson said on the 15th an- nixersary of NATO: "Our guard is up. But," he added, "our hand is out" Disaster opens opporfunify When you want to rebuild a California city Redlands, or any other — you are confronted wth the existence of old buildings that must be cleared away to make way for the new. Acquisition of the structures is expensive and the cost is a barrier to revitalizing ihe city center. An Act of God has taken care of the problem for Crescent City, 15 miles from the Oregon line. The seismic wave generated by the Alaska earthquake smashed into the business district comprised of 29 blocks, mostly one-story shabby buildings. In all, 154 buildings were damaged or destroyed. For a town of that size, the disaster was enormous. Yet, the demolition of the old buildings creates an opportunity to resurrect Ci^cent City — an opportunity that hardly e.\isted before March 28. Mayor William G. Peace says that city officials have decided to seize their big chance. Planners ai'e rapidly considering the form the new business district can best take and their prescription sounds quite amilar to what Victor Gruen believes Redlands should attempt . • . the Mall, the long blocks, the close in parking, beautification, harmonized architecture. This may seem improbable because a wrecked towii is usually in a bad way financially. History, though, is on the side of Crescent City's di^am. Santa Barbara — another California coastal city — was badly shaken in June 1926 with great damage in the business district Converting the disaster into opportunity, the municipality decreed that reconstruction would have to conform to the California Spanish style of architecture. Not only do modem buaness establishments stand in harmony with carefully preserved historic buildings, they harmonize with the magnificent Spanish courthouse. Out of the earthquake, Santa Barbara was reborn and annually celebrates its old-new life with the Spanish Days Fiesta. The Newsreel There is this to be said in defense of beer cans — the headlights glinting off of them mark the edges of the highway. All the medical plans are too voluntary, according to the man at the next desk, who feels tliat ewrybody shaild be forced to spend two weeks in the hospital every year, doctors included. The Army sees a decline in American traditions of marksmanship. The iitter around the office wastebasket indicates that it has been falling off for years. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and BiB Moon In this era when houses seem to explode into being, like corn kernels into popped com, it appears possible to stimulate the process. If. tie trustees decide to build a new school on open ground — prestpi Houses will pop up all around it Soon you can't see the school for the houses. Again, a super market fertilizes the soil in its neighborhood. Sage's is about to be surrounded on the fourth and last' side. Market Basket escudes an apartment - construction stimulant. NQ\7 we have another phenomenon — the polling place that goes ahead of the people. This innovation appeared Tuesday in the City Election when voters in Consolidated Precinct 32 journeyed to the model house, in the President Homes tract, east of the Country Club. Since the polling place at 1657 Country Club drive is m a tract that is built up, but yet to be sold, there are several possibilities. It might be that an active Republican movement could form a solid GOP colony there, although they might have trouble on deciding whether the neighborhood was for Hocky, Barry or that fellow do>vn in Vietnam. The Democrats, • also, could take over President Homes, making the present model home their headquarters. They might want to revise the front a bit to suggest either the Wlute House, or a certam ranch house down in Te.\as. Either way, they would have little trouble on agreeing on their candidate — LBJ. City Clerk Hazel Soper assures us that she had no such experiment in mmd when the pollmg place was designated. Rather, the County Registrar of Voters did a bit of reprecincting east of the Country Club because of the rapid increase in the number of voters. This was done close to the deadline for the selection of polling places, and the boundaries weren't clear until the last moment, she says. Mayor Charley Parker, who is the sales agent for President Homes, volunteered to solve Mrs. Soper's problem by making the way-out polling place available — a solution she was happy to accept. New polling places aren't easy to find. The city pays $12 and the householder is supposed to provide table, chairs, heat, light and space for the election board and the booths. The trend in recent years, as you have noticed, is from houses and residential garages to other places. City and County election ofljcjals like school- bouses because they afford the requisite utilities and are easily located by the voters. Moreover, they are made available for elections without cost RccenUy the City has used more Sunday school rooms and church halls. The most centrally located ones arc at the Congregational and Baptists churches, situated at the Lord's Corner (Cajon-Olive). Of course, this is all bound to change. In a few years you will just walk into a computerized voting center and push some buttons. Lights blink. Tapes whirl. And bingo — you've elect- cd a new president. One Minute Pulpit So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. — Hebrews 9:28.

The moon is at its first quar< iter. The morning star is Saturn. The evening star is Venus. On this day in history: In 1775, American patriot Paul Revere began his famed ride to alert the Massachusetts countryside with his cry "The British are coming." In 1906, the- San Francisco earthquake started. When it ended three days later 500 persons had been killed. In 1342. Lt CoL James Doolittle and a squadron of IS B25s bombed Japan. In 1945, the U.S. war correspondent • Ernie Pyle was killed on an island in the Pacific. A thought for the day—Playwright Oscar Wilde said: "Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes." LOS ANGELES — There has been a rash of magazine writing out of New York City which attempts to make a case for a current sexual revolution in America, with emphasis on the changing attitudes of American youth toward pre-marital sex. The pieces have been read attentively in California. But no one seems to learn much from it all. A pert, blue-eyed brunette who is a graduate student at the University of California at Los Angeles may have spoken for the majority of her contemporaries when she told me: "^Vhat's aU this excitement back East?. You'd think that sex just came out this season. The only revolution I can see is that there's been so much publicity all of a sudden that now we feel a little clinical. I was sitting in a bar the other night with my date and he was talking about P.M.S. I thought' it must be Pimm's Cup, or some weird drink. But be was talking about pre-marital sex." Her campus, UCLA, has the largest enrollment in Southern California:- 22,000, but only one in seven students lives in a dormitory, with curfews and an earnest ban against visiting in dormitory rooms of the opposite sex. There is no great furor for setting up parietal hours as on many Eastern campuses to allow such visits. About two of every three male students have cars, and the Southern California student doesn't have the sense of sexual claustrophobia which characterizes campuses in regions of less hospitable climate and sexual mores. One in three UCLA students commutes to the campus from home. Another 40 per cent live in apartments away from campus jurisdiction. University ad- mimstrators are prone to an au: of gratefulness when they observe that they have litUe jiiris- diction over the majority of the student body in social and sexual affairs. The UCLA campus lies between Hollywood and Beverly Hills to the east, and the upper- class suburbs of Bel Air and West Los Angeles to the west. Not far away are the beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu. Even the names of the communities are associated with a certain sexual laissez-faire. It has been a long way from Plymouth Rock and Salem to Sutter's Mill and the Hollywood Hills. At the college level in Southern California, where co-education is almost the invariable rule, going steady is a matter of status. "Having a girl of your own on campus." a sophomore at University of Southern California told me, "is as important as it is to have a car when you turn 16. Without a steady, you're nobody. A lot of talk among the fellows is about who's marrying whom and when."

But it does conform to fewer established patterns of behavior than most cities. Its people have converged on Los Angeles, and the rest of Southern California, looking for something different from what they have known: more freedom, an environment without cloying relatives and traditions, a diance to be themselves. The mood is. Why not? -In an almost rootless society like ifaat of Southern California, the answers to such a question can be slow indeed in coming. When a \Vhy not? question involving sexual liberty is asked, and there is hesitation about the answer, no one stays around to listen. By no means everjone in Southern California is happy about its blitheness toward sex. Among those admittedly apprehensive is Dr. Svend Riemer, a sociologist at UCLA who teaches a course in marriage and the family. Dr. Riemer feels that the yeasty influx of millions of people to the area has triggered a massive case of anomie — a sociologist's term for that state of society in which normal standards of conduct and belief have weakened or disappeared. In the individual. Dr. Riemer notes, anomie leads to anxiety. It is anomie which accentuates the Southern California restlessness that leads to what is probably the nation's highest rate of extra-marital affairs, and is certainly the nation's highest rate of divorce. In their continuing strides away from Puritanism, Southern California youth have the blessing, implied or explicit, of many of their parents, who often are immersed in sexual obsessions of their own. It is sometimes the parents who have wrestled with inherited Victorian restraints and lost, and feel doubt and guilt. The youngsters, many of whom never were told what not to do anyhow, have struck out to find their own sex codes. They are clearly the most liberal sex codes m the United States. Not divorce, not even unmarried pregnancy, seems to carry so serious a social stigma as elsewhere.
