i'age 10 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA APRIL 25, 1964 Don't, count on your toothbrush to prevent cavities Parents may Avant to censor this item before their kids see it Some manufacturers might like to censor it before anybody sees it. Anyway, Dr. Ralph R. Steinman, who happens to be a resident of Yucaipa, has stated that "brushing teeth makes no difference in preventing cavities." What gives it impact is the role in which he spoke, and the place where he said it He was speaking as professor of oral medicine at the Loma Linda School of Dentistry. It was in the Health Bulletin that he reported that at least two studies show that children who brush the most have slightly more decay than those who skip brushing. "The areas most susceptible to decay," says Dr. Steinman, "can't be reached with a toothbrush." The real ans\ver to tooth decay. Dr. Steinman believes, lies in chan^ng our eating habits. The chief causes of decay, he says, are, first, between-meal snacks; second, desserts; and third, refined grains, such as macaroni, cold cereals and white bread. The amount of nibbling children do, says the dentist, has a "very, very close relationship" to the number of cavities they have. The average person consumes about 100 pounds of sugar a year. Dr. Steinman has cut his family's individual consumption to 12 pounds. Toothbrushing is such an ingrained habit with Americans, and the merits of various brands of toothpaste are so constantly and forcibly presented to our eyes and ears, that most of lis would consider it heresy to give up brushing our teeth. Dr. Steinman undoubtedly has a good point about diet, though. Too many of us have the idea that v.delding the brush and tube two or three times a day is all.we need worry about. Time and tide don't wait William 0. Douglas, Associate Justice of tlie U.S. Supreme Court, put registrars of voters in nearly every California county in a bind Wednesday when he ordered them to stop preparations for the June 2 Presidential Primary Election. Harold Stassen had appealled to the court, claiming that he should have a delegation to tlie Republican National Convention on the ballot "All right," Mr. Douglas said, in effect. "We won't let the registrars print the ballots until we decide if your name should go on them." This created a neai' crisis because a great deal of lead time is necessary in order to get sample ballots, absentee ballots and regular ballots printed in sufficient time. It must be remembered that in a single county it takes numerous variations of tlie ballot to ac comodate local contests such as justice court judgeships. Fortunately, the rest of the Supreme Court does not shai'e what often appeai^s to be Mr. Douglas' view of the law — tliat anything in the U.S.A. can wait until the court has had time to consider any point of law that is so tiny it takes a microscope to see it Yesterday the court found that sbc justices did not consider the Stassen appeal to be sufficiently gi-ounded. Not w a i t i n g until Monday — which is the custom — the court made its decision known at once. The election officials in California could get on with their work, \vithout further loss of precious time. The simple moral to the whole Stassen case is: "Meet your deadlines." California law was explicit as to how many valid signatures were needed to put his delegation on the ballot and the deadline was fbced. Stassen did not file petitions bearing sufficient valid signatures within the period prescribed by law, "Time and tide wait for no man" . . . and that includes aspurants for President. The Newsreel Evolutionists now think that nature may have tried out several different kinds of man before deciding on the one we're stuck with. A perennial problem of our diplomats is that they don't get enough money for cocktails. Also, these days, it takes a rich ambassador to pay the putty and window- glass bill. Scientists are beating the gamblers. There may have to be a new house rule: "Check your 6-guns and computers at the door." Proponents of daylight saving point out that Benjamin Franklin thought it up. He was also the man who thought it was a good idea to fly kites in a thunderstorm. When he reaches his mid-teens the average American boy is likely to be taller and heavier than his father. But, of course, there may also be other factors in the decline of parental discipline. The problem of getting men to the moon is about to be solved. Getting them to and from work in our cities will, of coui:se, take a little longer. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and BiD Meere B/ FRANK MOORE At 3:07 p.m. Tuesday the Rev. Keith Kenny, Chaplain of Uie California Senate, opened the day's session with a prayer of 137 words. Just 35 minutes later the same minister in the same chamber again offered an opening prayer — but this one was as quick and short as' grace before supper. The Girl Scouts of Antioch Troop 2578, who were in the gallery, may have been astonished at this repetitious ceremonial. But old Senate hands didn't bat an eye. They are quite accustomed to the Constitutional quirk that causes them to play a daily double header. The first one concerns money (the budget) and the second one, laws. When you visit the Legislature in Sacramento, the proceedings may look chaotic. Many a visitor is shocked that "DO one paid any attention whild Senator Jones was speaking." But as a veteran of umpteen hundred committee, club and organizational meetings, wc watched with unbounded admiration the rapid dispatch of business in Uie Senate Tuesday. Amateurs can spend half an hour merely reading Uie minutes of the last meeting and setting the time and place of the next meeting. By our rough tally, the Senators, in just 3S minutes, dealt with 33 different bills and resolutions, heard 15 committee reports, answered nine roll calls, and gave their consent to 11 important appointments by the Governor. Man — that's really rolling. It is (rue, of course. Oiat much of the maUer was trivial, such as congratulating Gov. Edmund Brown on his S91h birthday and applauding "Picnic Day" at the University of California, Davis. But tlic Senate did deal with such substanUal appointments as Lawrence E. Wilson as Warden of San Qucntin Prison, Warren Thompson as Director of the Department of Rehabilitation, and Dr. James B. Lowry as Director of I^Icntal Hygiene. They considered the plight of schools which have no property lax revenue because they are situated in State Parks. They approved of a small experiment in houses for farm workers, to be needed because the bracero program is ending. They authorized the State Division of Beaches and Parks to consider whether picnic and camp grounds should be financed under the November bond issue for Mitchell Caverns on tlie Mojave Desert of our county. This was on a resolution by Senator Eugene Nisbct of our county; a similar resolution by Assemblyman Stewart Hinckley of Redlands will cause Cima Dome to be similarly considered. Although many of the matters in these daily sessions do not loom large in the entire state scheme of things, they arc frequently important to somebody somewhere in California. How do they dispatch business in their sessions so fast? JIainly by expert use of the parliamentary rules wc laymen have so much book learning m, but use so poorly in most of our meetings. They do most of the detailed, compUcated work in committees. They have a printed order of business and slick to it They waste no time in talking about things they are already agreed upon. They follow the rules. When they are through, they quit. If only they could cvport some of that expertise to their constituents back home, we could shorten most of our meetings by one half.

ASSIGNMENT; West Neqro revolt slews Son Francisco renewal By Neil Morgan SAN FRANCISCO — Untfl this spring, the great pliilbsoph- ical batUe for urban renewal was thought to have been long won in most U.S. cities. With varying success, agencies in major cities now buy blighted land, raze old buildings and sell the land back to developers who build by a new master plan. But because those blighted urban areas in many cities are the homes of minorities, especially Negroes, the process- of redevelopment is being slowed In the Negro revolution. Urban renewal specialists are often as dedicated as the dam builders who must sweep thousands from their homesteads before the waters back up. In U.S. cities, thousands are routinely forced from their homes by urban renewal. But because the moving force is local, and not from the federal government, the protests of the evicted are potent. The process of renewal bends and shapes to the pressures of local politics as well as to the sense of humanity. Los Angeles is far behind schedule on its massive Bunker Hill renewal project, almost in the shadow of City Hall, where a 136-acre slum will be replaced by tower apartments for six to eight thousand residents in a walk-to-work location; many of them will be employed in office buildings and hotels which are planned for Bunker Hill. San Diego only now is beginning to think seriously of urban renewal; this city and Dallas are the largest cities in the nation which have not gone into some kind of renewal. San Francisco has a redevelopment program more experimental than most — more socially oriented, and with greater variety in function of the finished projects. Its proponents claim better quality and design for projects such as the Golden Gateway, a com munity of apartments and offices now rising in the old produce district; Western Addition Area 1, a slum back of Van Ness avenue where major residential, institutional and commercial buildings ah:eady have been completed; and Diamond Heights, near Twin Peaks, where middle and upper priced residential units are being built on scenic sites never before occupied. But even in San Francisco, this month, there were signs that public officials were hesitating on the city's largest and newest redevelopment program in the face of fevered protests by Negro spokesmen. Til program is Western Addition Area 2, a 73-bIock area of about 15,000 people where an estimated 48 per cent of t h e residents are Negro. Negro leaders have pledged to turn the district into a bloody battleground if wrecking crews aren't called off. Residential units built in renewed areas often are too expensive for former occupants of the area. The result is that many move from a rehabilitated slum into other slum areas. Urban renewal decreases the number of low-cost housing units available within a city. Carried to its extreme, it forces some low-income families outside a city's limits. San Franciscans arc not insensitive to this problem. As early as 1961, Dr. Ellis D. Sox, public health director, asked bluntly in a meeting of San Francisco civil leaders: "Where in hell are they going to go?" That same question echoed through three days of tense hearings this month in San •Francisco, during which the five white commissioners of the Redevelopment Agency were challenged to seat at least one Negro member on the board. The tone of the protest was militant and sometimes irrelevant. But plaintive arguments came starkly clear. "These officials came around a long time ago and told us our place would be bought and torn down, and not to fix it up, not even paint it," one householder testified. J'Now they come back to appraise it and they say, 'Gee, it's not m very good shape, is it?" " One NAACP aUomey referred to urban renewal as "the newest device of racial discrimination. It concentrates on buildings and not on people." Yet even among the protestants, there has seemed widespread favor for some kind of renewal of their blighted area. The difficulty is in the mechanics. Renewal experts, pointing out their past efforts to relocate displaced residents and to un- derwTite costs of moving, were quick to respond. "What they're asking for is idealistic but impossible," replied M. Justin Herman, executive director of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency. "They want integrated housing throughout the city at a price all can afford." Urban renewal spotlights human misery and rejection. "The war is over," testified one former Negro shipyard worker in San Francisco, "and they don't want us here anymore." Sighed Herman: "It is obvious we must either leave slums for people to go to, or provide a controlled substitute. We need to look at the big picture: What must we do as a total city for these people, as distinguished from what urban renewal can do in a single small area?" BACK AGAIN JACKSONVILLE, Fla.
