SRacIs Pagfl 20 REDUNDS, CALIFORNIA APRIL 22, 1964 The Cyprus heritage — Centuries of strife For a small land — less than half the size of New Jersey and with a population about that of San Antonio, Tex. — the island of Cyprus casts a large shadow over current events. This is nothing new. The history of Cyprus is the history of the whole ancient world, and much of modem history has focused on this crossroads of the Mediterranean. Beginning at least as far back as 4000 B.C., Cyprus has seen successive ^vaves of settlers and conquerors, both because of its strategic position, 45 miles off the coast of Turkey, and because of its rich copper and iron deposits. A roll call of the conquerors includes Thotmes in of Egypt, Sargon II of Assyria, Darius and Xer.xes of Persia, Alexander the Great, Caesar Augustus, Mu'awiya of Syria, Richard the Lion Heart, the Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman Empires and finally the British Empire. Years of peace for Cyprus, witli or without independence, have been few over this vast stretch of centuries. Turkish conquest of Cyprus and settlement of Tui-ks among the predominately Greek population took place in the 16th centuiy. After 400 years, tJie two groups remain separate — linguistically, religiously and culturally. Greek Cypriot agitation for "Enosis," or reunion with Greece, bitterly opposed by the Turkish minority, began in the 1930s and accelerated after World War H. The blood of a hundred generations that has stained the soil of Cypius contmues to flow, despite the presence of the fu-st time of an internationally constituted peace-keeping force. Cyrpus, bearing the weight of centuries, will not know peace quickly or easily. Getting in on the top floor One of the hottest stocks in Wall Street, even before it has actually been placed on the market, is the S200 million offering of Comsat—the Communications Satellite Corp. Comsat will develop and maintain a commercial system of Telstar-type satellites. Half its stock, expected to sell for $20 a share, will go to communications companies, half to the public. Most of those who would like to buy a share in tlie space age will have to wait, however, for the Comsat stock is already oversubscribed — even though, as one analyst pointed out, the company hasn't earned a cent yet, may not show a profit for five yeai-s or pay a dividend for 10 years. If the Russians had any doubts about the eai-nestness of American intentions in space, the impending orbiting of their arch-enemy Wall Street ought to remove them. It may not be too gi*eat a jump of the imagination to predict that one day shiploads of planetcuy colonists will be financed by private speculators., After all, that's how the Pilgrims got to America. Red world is a-rocking The Soviets are trjing massive retaliation against, of all things, the "Ts^ist" According to a story out of Moscow, over the past 10 years the Communists have tried to popularize no less than 50 homegrown dances that would be acceptable both to party ideology and Russian youth. One of them bore the suspiciously Western name of the "Slag Heap," but evidently it was small potatoes ne.\-t to the "Mashed Potato" from America, because it just didn't go over. No one e.\pects this, uh, cultural invasion from the West to play more than a small part in the ending East-West tensions, but that old Iron Curtain seems to be a-shimm\1ng and a-shaking. The Newsreel We had been told that Mark Twain is widely read in Russia, but Khrushchev didn't say anything about reports of his death being greatly exaggerated. The latest thing that the syndicated brains require of a politician is "stj'le," and Congressman Sludgepump is looking around the house for his old ^ats and goldheaded cane. Tilly is enthusiastic over a new recipe she has just tried — baked potato without sour cream and chives. The next move, apparently, will be for a constitutional amendment requiring e\'ery candidate for president to pass a drivers' license exam. Wouldn't this old worid be better off if it took a tip from that oil company's economy run, and one in which everybody wins? The government thinks consumers need more ccurate information on food packages. Let for example, agree on a definition of ex- tly what "gourmet" means. Tontana Congressman reports that bank irs prefer silver dollars. And poUticians ^minded that the bank-robber vote is e one these days. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore "We came back from Palm Springs Sunday afternoon and the traffic was bumper-to- bumper all the way from Palm Springs to Cabazon," the Red- lander exclaimed. "That was a mistake. We should have stayed home." He is not the first to name Cabazon as the bottleneck. "I came through Cabazon a few Sundays ago," another Red- lander testified, "and there was a traffic cop standing in the highway. He would stop all of the cars to let a single woman walk across — and did she take her time?" Before Cabazon was a municipality there was no local police department and no authority the local pedestrian could demand ser\ice from. If you fly over Cabazon — and that's one way to beat the bottleneck — you can look down on two wide, white ribbons of concrete that by-pass the present town. From the air, of course, you can't judge how close to completion the by-pass actually is. Probably the question is academic, because the Spring heat on the desert will soon reduce the Sunday traffic. By next fall, when the automobile river again rises to high water mark, the motorists won't even know Cabazon is on the route. The by-pass will be doing full duty. The latest craze in outings can usually be observed by taking notice of the weekenders cruising alonp our freeway. At first you would see a car pulling a house trailer. Then came the cars pulling outboard motor boats on trailers. Ocassionally you would see a car pulling a house and behind that a boat. Jlorc recently the camper- boat combination has been the rage. Now we are beginning to see the camper plus motorcycle. We paused to inspect such a rig in Rcdlands Sunday. At the back of the camper (mounted on a Chevrolet pick-up) was a steel bracket projecting from the bumper-step. This supported a Red Honda 55 registered to Stanley Charles of Granada Hills. Mr. Charles wasn't in evidence but we suppose that having conquered the Granada Hills he now pursues more distant knolls to skim up and down on his light-weight motorbike. It may be that you have never been in tlie nearby hills —the Crafton Hills, for instance — on a Sunday afternoon. On foot your life is in danger. The motorbike riders whiz up one hogsback. down into the next canyon, and up over the far ridge. This is the age of motors and wheels. What comes next in the outdoor craze department is anyone's guess. The free balloonisls have revived the mode of travel favored by the hero of ".•Ground the World in 80 Days". The for-fun parachute jumpers are busy every Sunday. Next, probably, will come these fellows who attach hydrogen peroxide bottles to their backs and fly into the air, wingless, under jet power. .'Vfter that we expect to see campers going through Redlands laden with disassembled helicopters on the roof. This will be the small, family size helicopter, of course, driven by an outboard motor and very haiidy for pulling someone on water skis. Or are we just dreaming? •'You Suppose It Can Be.

Vatican stamps for fair participation VATICAN CITY (UPI) — The Vatican commemorated its participation in the New York World's Fair with an issue of postage stamps released today. The four stamps bear the Latin inscription "Civitas Vati- cana univ. Neo A Boracensem E.xpositionem participat" meaning "Vatican City participates in the New York Universal Exposition." They bear the likeness of Pope Paul Vi and Michelangelo's Pietra, which the Vatican sent to the fair.

He reported that "the power ful bagpipe lobby" in this country has undertaken a campaign to persuade Congress to amend the tariff laws so that bagpipes can be imported duty free. "Make no mistake," he warned, "once they are import ed, they'll be played — if that's the word." Rather than eliminate the tariff, he added. Congress. would do better to double it "The purpose of tariffs is protection and this is a field in which we feel we, aU need.pro tection, the more the better," he wrote. As you might imagine, the reaction of the bagpipe lobby to this attack was immediate and heated. One spokesman said it had "aroused the ire of all true • Scots from the rock - bound lochs of JIaine to the heathered glens of Sunny California." Another declared that "the grand music o' the pipes instills in ilka briest an abidin' love for freedom, justice and brither man." Still another asserted that the heavenly music of the Scottish pipes" is "the sound dearest to the hearts of Scots save only the sound of their mother's singing." Informed sources revealed that the bagpipe lobby is composed of 17 members of the V/ashingtonScottish Pipe band. And it was further disclosed that the band holds weekly practice sessions on the campus of Gallaudet College, a school for the deaf. An investigation is now un- dierway to determine whether the Gallaudet students were deaf before the band started practicing there. There is an dd (Hiinese proverb to the effect that nobody can be neutral about bag- Alabama's chunky Gov. George C. Wallace is blowing up a storm in Indiana. The word from Indianapolis that Wallace is likely to poll a spectacular vote in Indiana's May 5 presidential preference primary. Wallace rattled political windows a fortnight ago in Wisconsin where he polled more than a quarter of a million preferential primary votes. Wallace didn't win any delegates but he polled 10 times the vote party regulars predicted he . would. In Indiana as in Wisconsin, Wallace offers himself as a state's righter opposed to the civil rights bill now pending in Congress. He is, in fact, an all- out segregationist. Wallace does not expect to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate. His purpose is to illuminate northern areas of disenchantment with the civil rights developments. Stall-ins such as Negro leaders proposed m traffic leading to the New York World's Fair tend to win for Wallace votes against headstrong and overly- militant Negro leadership. These votes need not be against civil rights so much as against the methods sometimes used to attain them. Protest Vote For example, here is a letter recently published in the Indianapolis Times: "My vote for Wallace is just a protest vote. This is the only way I have of showing my disgust for the asinine sit-ins, march-ins, demonstrations, and every other form of rabble rousing." Wallace will be running against a favorite son who is committed to President Johnson. The favorite son is Gov. Matthew E. Welsh. It is Wallace's good fortune that the favorite Democratic son governor in Indiana is rather unpopular with his own party. This was the situation in Wisconsin where Gov. John W. Reynolds was less than the idol of his state's Democrats. Three others in the Democratic primary are Lar Daly, John Hugh Latham and Mrs. Carpenter Srain. Daly and Latham are not taken seriously but they can't be entirely dismissed either. In 1960 they polled 83,000 votes, taking them largely from the Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy. Richard JT. Nison won Indiana's electoral vota with 1,175,120 votes to Kennedy's 952,358. Angry Democrat* "There are a lot of angry Democrats in Indiana," a longtime Indiana watcher reported. "Some of them are mad at the state civil rights bill. Some others are mad at LBJ and some still are mad at John Kennedy. A great many are mad at Gov. Welsh." Wallace has been well received, so far. Indiana Democratic leaders are not brushing off the Wallace invasion as the Wisconsin party leadership was inclined to do until Lite in the campaign. No one is playing the numbers game for publication. There are not likely to be any Indiana post mortems in which it can be shown that Wallace poUed twice, thrice or ten times the vote the party leadership had expected. Wallace in Wisconsin did 10 times better than Gov. Reynolds expected him to do. And that made the Wallace performance look better than if the governor had refused to play numbers. But the word is out in Indiana that Wallace is going strong and not losing momentum. Gaining momentum, maybe. It does not seem extravagant to believe 'he may do better in Indiana than in Wisconsin. From Indiana he goes to Maryland for the May 19 presidential preference primary. He is likely to run pretty well in Maryland, too. THE DOCTOR SAYS Spare parts for heart tell story of medical advances By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt While colds, indigestion and pimples continue to annoy a large part of the population, let us consider the amazing advances in the surgical repair of the heart. The life of any one of us might be saved by these new techniques. Two things have made it possible to open the heart of a living patient. One is the ability to stop the circulation for a short period by lowering the body's temperature and the other is the use of the heart- lung machine. This machine takes the blood that is about to be emptied into the heart and pick up oxygen in a mechanical pump, then retums it to the general circulation just beyond the heart. This part of the operation depends on the proper use of anticoagulants. The first operations of this sort were repairs of heart valves damaged by rheumatic fever or other diseases. It soon became apparent, however, that some valves were damaged beyond rpair. Dr. Albert Starr Teletips TOP SHOW: - 6:30, Chan. 4. "Openmg Night at the World's Fair."

I would not like to appear to be trying to influence anyone's opinion, but, frankly, I was amazed to leara that bagpipers practice at all. One of the nice things about playing bagpipes is that you can hit the wTong notes without anybody knowing it. Regardless of what tune you play on bagpipes, it sounds like the second choms of "Who Threw The Kilts In Mrs. MacTavish's Haggis?" On the other hand, I would like to leave you this parting thought — no country that produces Scotch whisky can be all bad. of the University of Oregon with the help of M. L. Edwards, a retired engioeer, has devised an artificial valve to wholly replace these badly diseased valves. Unlike the normal heart valve, the artificial replacement is a ball valve. The several materials used are all chemically inert in the human body and thus cannot corrode. The ball, which is made of silicon elastic, is enclosed in a shmy cage made of Vitallium alloy and attached to the heart by a sleeve or ring of knitted Teflon. Another group of surgeons, working in Boston, has found that a special plastic glue can be used to seal surgical incisions in blood vessels. When applied to an incision this gli'e sets in two minutes. This adhesive seal not only holds, but it can stretch with the pulsations of the vessels. This is a great advantage over the un- yieldmg metal and fiber sutures formerly used. THE ALMANAC Today is Wednesday, April 22 the 113th day of 1964 with 253 to follow. The moon is approaching its full phase. The morning star is Saturn. The evening star is Venus. On this day in history: In 1864, Congress authorized the mint to use the motto "In God We Trust" on U.S. corns. In 1898, the U.S. Navy fired the first shot of the Spanish- American War. In 1915, the German army began using poison gas in World War I in violation of the rules of the Hague Convention. A thought for the day: French novelist Marcel Proust said—"The time which we have at our disposal every day is elastic; the passions that we feel expand it, those that we inspire conUct it, and habit fills up what remains." One Minute Pulpit And he will give rain for the seed with which you sow the ground, and grain, the produce of the ground, which will be rich and plenteous. In that day your cattle will graze in large pastures. — Isaiah 30:23. America is a.world symbol of productive power, of military strength, and of great material wealth but this is not enough. ' We must demonstrate the qualities of moral leadership, for power without iporality is power without purpose. — Walter P. Beuther.
