Page 16 REDUNDS, CALIFORNIA APRIL 23, 1964 Burroughs well qualified for role as Redlands mayor Waldo F. Bvurroughs \vith seven years of experience on the city council is well qualified to step into the position of mayor. He has participated in city government during a turbulent period and has won the respect of his council associates and the community for his cool-headed approach to difficult problems. Burroughs, as much as anyone in Redlands government, has shown a %viJlingness to look at all sides of a question and to listen open- mindedly to advocates of various positions. Then he has made up his mind and stood by his position. He has been willing to compromise when compromise seemed valid. He has been unyielding when that seemed the only couree. Burroughs is a product of Redlands schools, Redlands business community, and Redlands civic organizations. He went into business for himself duiing the difficult 1930s and prospered in a highly competitive field. His first community prominence came in the Boy Scout pi-ogram where lie has long been one of the leaders. He is a past pi-esi- dent of Redlands Rotary club. Redlands has had able leadership with Charles Parker in the mayor's chair, and Burroughs, as vice-mayor, was a strong help. His experience as vice-mayor gives him the background to carry on with sound programs. Tuesday night he listed goals for the city during his administration all of which are worthy. There are many problems that must be solved as Redlands continues to suffer the growing pains thrust upon it by the population explosion and westward migration. It will take real leadei-ship to solve them. The community wishes Waldo Bm-roughs every success in the city's most important governmental position. In darkest Washington Not since the blackouts of World War II has official Washington, D.C., been as dai'k at night as it has since President Johnson ordered that only necessary lights be turned on at the White House. Always sensitive about its public image, the Pentagon has gone the Executive Mansion one better. Not only ai'e all unnecessaiy lights turned off, but those that must be on ai-e shielded from outside view by drawn shades, evidently on the theory that you can fool some of the people some of the time, etc. It's possible, however, that some of these people may wonder if anybody is attending to government business after five o'clock — at least emptying wstebaskets and mopping the flooi-s — rather than be impressed by all tliis solicitude for their tax dollars. At any rate, the richest nation in the world ought to be able to afford turning the spotlights around the White House back on. This is one instance where the symbol is more important than the substance of a smaller electric bill. Kinds-words-across-sea Visitoi-s to our shores inevitably come armed with sterotyped images of America and Americans which don't last long once they arrive. Sometimes, though, it takes a foreigner to show us that we often have wrong notions about ourselves. One traditional American view is that we — the men, at any rate — are casual dressers who take no gi-eat interest in dothes. Comfort, not style, is the important thing. On the other hand, we think of the Brit isher as the epitome of sartorial correctness —dark suit and muted tie, bowler hat, cane or umbrella and all that Now comes an Englishman, master tailor Peter Dewar Haggart of London, who says he finds "the average American a little more con9er\'ative, more quietly dressed than the average Englishman." Americans, he discovered to his surprise, ai'e favoring quiet patterns in their business suits. "I though Americans all wore dreadful ties and loud suits," he says. "I suppose it is a revolt against the ZBZZ Age." Or may'oe Haggart merely saw too many old Ameiican movies on the "telly".

Surely Hollywood will.cash in on two big award-winning pictures by filming a sequel; "Tom Jones Meets Cleopatra." An elderly gentleman of our acquaintance doesn't know what a hootenanny is and rejoices that, at his age, there's no reason to find out With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and BiH Moore One of the greatest driving aids to be put into use recently are the reflectors that mark the road for night driving such as those on Barton road approaching Loma Linda. The reflectors seem to create a lot of activity and make for consciousness of the road and intersections. While these are somewhat of a sensation the first Ume a driver comes upon them, they are hut nothing compared to what miles and miles of reflectors do on desert roads. Driving Highway 395 from Cajon Pass through Adelanto and out across the desert to Red Mountain and Johanessburg used to be dangerous at night. Drivers were inclined to overdrive their liglits, come up on unseen curves in the road and ended up in disaster. With the new reflectors the road is a stream of lights. First reaction is that this is a mean way to arrange things with distracting lights out on the lonely desert where there should be an absence of light except for the occasional car passing in the opposite direction. After the driver gets used (o it, he takes on a new confidence. He can see the road curvmg away long before he gels to the curve. He knows he won't speed into a disguised turn that could cause him trouble. The desert road, lighted by his own lights, now is a ribbon of lights. Old timers will be confused. They will swear they are not on old Highway 393, but on some well traveled boulevard. Just how dark the desert is without the lights be finds out after leaving San Bemardtno county at Red Mountain. A few miles later there are no reflectors. It is as black as the inside of a wild burro. Unless he knows the road intimately he had better slow down because it is narrow and of minimum standards. If he has been around a long lime, he will probably recall days when the High Sierra fans took this route during the era of the Model T and the Model A Fords. It was dirt and sand with "thank-you-mams" at every gully that were an impediment to fast and pleasant driving. At night there were no reflectors and the jackrabbits would come dashing onto the road where many met an untimely end. The Model A driver didn't have to use this route. He could go on pavement by way of Lancaster and Slojave, but that was 75 miles farther. Furthermore it was much more heavily traveled and he had none of the feeling of being way out away from civilization like he had on the old desert cutoff. The desert on a week night after leaving Adelanto en route north to Owens Valley despite the reflectors is still a lonely stretch of road. The weekend ski crowd is slaving it out earning enough money for trips to Mammoth Lakes region an hour beyond Bishop. The boat crowd has not yet taken to the road for the lakes are still frozen and the Sierra snow comes down to the 8,000 foot level. On Friday night Highway 395 really comes to life. The skiers and the pickup trucks with camper bodies travel in steady procession. Amazingly many skiers seem to prefer Volkswagens and they look awkward speeding along the desert with skis pointing to the sky from the rear of these small sedans. The road will be busy most of the night and again on Sunday. Then there will be another interval of peace and desert solitude.

Hubert Humphrey or,Bobby Kennedj?" V/ASHINGTON (UPI) - The White House has announced that President Johnson will hold an international reception in June m honor of Shakespeare's 400th birthday anniversary. It occurred to me that it might be fitting to give Shakespeare a chance to return the compUmenL And so I have contrived another one of my "interviews" with the immortal bard. To accomplish this, I have lifted some of his more poetic lines out of their original context and placed them in a contemporary setting, thusly: O. Mr. Shakespeare, how do jTou feel about having your birthday honored by the United States President? A. "O, wonderful, wonderful, and most wonderful wonderful! And yet again wonderful, and after that out of all hooping." Q. What type of receptron do you think would be appropriate? A. "Every room...bIazed with lights and bray'd with minstrelsy." Q. Wait a minute, Mr. Shake speare. How can you have a reception like that when the Prses- ident is trying to economize by cutting the electricity bill? A. "Light seeking light doth Ught of Ught beguile." O. Shouki dancing be permitted? A. "The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils." Q. Do you approve of the way the President has been dancing at White House functions? A. "Why should a man. whose blood is warm within, sit like his grandsire cut in alabaster." Q. How would you like to go driving with the President? A. "It goes much against my stomach. I was now a coward on instinct" Q. You must have heard those stories about the Presi- doit driving 80 miles an hour in Texas. A. •'Very tongue brings in a several tale." Q. Have you also heard how some of the men swim in the White House pool? A. "Like little wanton boys WASHINGTON — President Johnson has taken the most far-reaching steps in American political history to put self-re- slraint in both parties over foreign policy discussion in this election year. This was the central motive in Mr. Johnson's offer, in his speech before the publishers in New York, to open the facilities of the Stiie Department, Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency — not later in the campaign but now — to all major aspirants for the Republican Presidential nomination. Never 'belore has the basic national security information, ordinarily available only to the administration in power, been made available to the opposition party generally even before its own Presidential nominee has been chosen. The nearest to a parallel is far from exact. In 1944 the Franklin Roosevelt Administration invited Thomas E. Dewey to look into the inner secrets of the govemment. This, however was in a time of shooting war. And it also was only after Dewey had actually been nominated and so carried the sole responsibility on the Republican side for the nature of the campaign. President Johnson's decision means that the whole Republican Presidential field — Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, Sen. Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, Gov. William Scranton and Henry Cabot Lodge — is invited to inform itself from the inside on the heretofore classified details of this country's conduct of the cold war. There is obviously a risk from the DemocraUc point of view, for one or another of the candidates may well find weapons for his own arguments against the Admmistration. Mr. Johnson believes, however, that the risk is not so great as the probable reward. It is his conclusion that when one or another of his prospective opponents reads the whole record he will be less inclined than he would have been otherwise to shoot from the hip. As the principal spokesman of the Democratic party throughout the eight years of General Eisenhower's Presidency, the then Senator Johnson neither participated in nor permitted purely partisan Democratic at tacks on Eisenhower foreign policy. He was kept well informed by Mr. Eisenhower. He intends to return the favor to the Republicans now that it is they who are in opposition status. . There is also a fact that this Johnson offer to open the whole record to his political adversaries puts him in the posture of having nothing to hide. The purpose here, of course, is to what is being done in the world policy. More importanUy, however, the President's intention is to discourage irresponsible oratory on both sides, not so much in fear of' its political consequences here at home as in concern for its possible damaging effects abroad. He is not inviting a foreign policy debate. He is acting in awareness that some such debate is more or less inevitable, and that it should be nm with due regard for national interest. He is asking his opponents — and pledging himself — to remember that the whole world and not merely America will be listening to our campaign oratory. Much of that world does not understand that our parties can disagree violently about methods while remaining in complete unity on this country"! ultimate purposes. He is not quite asking that politics stop at the water's edge. But he is asking that no man can say things that could be read beyond the water's edge to indicate any true na-' fional disimion here. How aU this will work will remain to be seen. The Republican candidates may suspect an effort to neutralize them by the sheer hospitality of the President's offer of access to the iimer facts of cold war policy. They may, therefore, decline the invitation; or, accepting it, refuse to be impressed by what they see. It is, in any event, a reassuring approach to all those who can realize that the world is in the midst of grave shifts in the power balance and that to exploit events for our national purposes with care and prudence is infinitely more important than something called the Democratic party or .«wmething called the Republican party.

When a person needs more than he can get normally, he can be placed m an oxygen tent or can use an oxygen mask. Now from Holland comes a device which shows great roraise. It consists of a tank large enough to serve as a complete operating room, into which pure oxygen can be pumped. The many uses to which such a tank can be put include the treatment of carbon monoxide poisomng, decompression sickness or bends, gas gangrene, tetanus, apopletic strokes and shock. It has also been found to enhance the effectiveness of X-ray treatments for cancer. In certain chronic diseases characterized by an insufficiency of oxygen, such a decom pensation of the heart improvement is noted only while the vicfim remains in the tank. For such a person, the oxygen mask or tent is stiU the best mode of treatment. Perhaps the tank's greatest success to date has been its use in heart surgery, especially Teletips TOP SHOW; - 8:30, Chan. 4. Dr. Kildare. "Night of the Beast."

Thank you, Mr. Shakespeare. on children with congenital defects. An operafion is started at sea level pressure, then the pressure and oxygen concentration are increased so that the system is drenched in pare oxygen for 10 minutes. This not only doubles the oxygen saturation in the blood, it also enables the plasma to carry IS times as much oxygen as it does under normal conditions. This means that tissues can get oxygen from the plasma instead of from the red blood cells and operations can be performed that would otherwise reqture marked lowering of the body temperature. Other applications of the tank are being investigated. At present the chief disadvantage is that the appartus is very expensive. There are also certain potential hazards that must be studied. Rigid safeguards agamst explosion, fire and sudden accidental Joss of pressure must be built into the tanks. Furthermore, too great a concentration of oxygen in the blood can damage the retina and other delicate nerve cells. Safe limits, which may vary from~ one individual to another, have yet to be determined. THE ALMANAC Today is Thursday. April 23, the 114th day of 1964 with 252 to follow.
