Page 12 REDLANDS, CAIITORNIA MAY 5, 1964 Business plans own 'Peace Corps' Idealism and business too often ai'e considered to be something lilve oil and water — they just don't mix. This fallacy ought to be disproved by news that a group of American businessmen is planning to form its OWTI "Peace Coi-ps" to help small companies in underdeveloped nations abroad. "We want to show people that the free enterprise system is a good one," saj-s Tliomas 0. Thomas of the U.S. State Department, as quoted by the National Obsei-\'er. Tliomas is an employe of the Agency for International Development (AID), the department's foreign aid office, wJiicIi will provide an initial $1 million to kicli off tlie project. Eventually, it will operate solely on private donations. Not yet bearing an official name — it is informally called the Executi\'e Sen'ice Coips — tliG gi'oup plans to utilize the experience and knowledge of both retired (but UNtired) e .xecu- tives as well as younger men. The latter would take leaves of absence from their companies for overseas sei-vice of three months to two yeai's. Explaining the type of aid the Americans would offer, Thomas cites the example of a shoe company in Colombia. It makes good shoes, has good workers, but is in financial trouble. "They need someone to determine the per- imit cost for each shoe," says Thomas, "taking , in the cost of leather, labor, overhead, then adding a profit mai-gin, so a fair, but profitable, sales price can be established." Other tjTJes of help would be advice on setting up an assembly line or streamlining manufacturing and administrative methods. Under the program, the foreign company would pay its American executive the same salai-y as it would a local man. The corps headquarters in America would pay travel expenses and any salaiy supplements. During his tour of service, the American \^-ou]d train a local man to lake over the job when he leaves. This is the kind of "capitalist subversion" we should be telling the world about. To get the message, you gotta talk back! Communication is a two-way street. For understanding, ideas and thoughts must travel in both directions. What happens when, somewhere along Hie route, ti-affic snarls? Misunderstanding and confusion can result. In a series of experiments, a Bell Telephone Laboratories scientist has graphically demonstrated the role of two-way commtmication in tackling a problem. In each test, six people were divided into paii-s. Each of tlie six was given a set of dominoes. The dominoes of one pei-son (A) in each group were placed in a specific pattern; the dominoes of the other person (B) were unorganized. "A" was told to teU "B" by telephone how to set up his dominoes in the same pattei-n, but with this difference: In Group 1, "B" could not talk to "A." Result: none of the "Bs" got the pattern right. In Group 2, "B" could only indicate by pressing a buzzer that he didn't understand the in- sti-uctions of "A," who was allowed to repeat the instructions. Result: some of the "Bs" got the pattern right. In Group 3, "B" could talk to "A." Result: all of the "Bs" got the pattern right When interviewed after the tests, "As" in Group 1 thought the "Bs" were dim, since they couldn't understand simple instructions. But the "Bs" felt the "As" couldn't e.xplain things. The Group 2 participants expressed similar views, but not quite as strongly. Only the Group 3 people — who had been pei-mitted full two-way communication — felt happy about the experiment. The tests seem to show that it's easy to misunderstand, misinterpret and become completely confused when two-way channels are closed. Small wonder, Uien, that a common phrase these days is, "Well, what I meant to say was . . ." • The Newsreel A sun-ey shows the cigarette scai-e didn't last long. The only way to get the American public to quit something is to say it's good for them. Aunt Effie, a lifelong Democrat, snaps, "I never had much use for that Richard Nixon, but at least he never picked Checkers up by the ears." The two dangers of the worid's fair are people running out of gas on their way there and running out of money after they get in. The biggest salesmanship challenge in industry today would be trj'ing to persuade the average motorist to buy a car he could afford. Unwai-j' gardenei-s are warned tliat highly- publicized flowei-s and shnigs may not live up to expectations. But in the gai-den it's dreams, not realities, that matter. The charge that world's fair visitors are being gouged is being heard in New York. But would we want people from abroad to think that we wei^ lagging behind in the greed race? With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bid Moore On one o£ the open fields near March Air Force Base each morning a man appears with a peregrine falcon which he releases. The bird takes to wing and when the man has flushed out the prey, the falcon plunges swifUy to the earth, killing it. This is the ancient and medieval sport of falconry. From this sport of the mobility many technical words found their way into the plays of Shakespeare: "How high a PITCH his resolution soars!" (Richard II) ••My F.\LCON now is SHARP N D PASSING EMPTY." (Taming of Shrew) To explain these terms Henry T. Swaim came from Riverside Sunday to the University of Redlands. a feature of the current Shakespeare Festival. Although he is a Rivcrsidcr by residence, he did attend Redlands High School, graudating in 1933 and then making a ca­ rer of the military (mostly Air Force) from which he is now retired. On a table, placed in the shade of a grove of eucalyptus on the campus, he displayed -Aurora, who is now four years old, and quite jealous of the young newcomer, Pegasus. Both birds are about the size of crows, although slimmer and much different of plummag-j. If you have never seen a falconer's birds before, the appearance is sure to be quite s'rangc. As the duck hawk perches, she wears a hood which closely covers all of the head, only the beak protruding. Atop the hood is a jaunty plume of feathers. To put the hood over tlie head, .Mr. Swaim simply holds the bird on his left arm and quickly slams the hood down over the falcons head. The draw "strings" are leather thongs. Since he has only one hand free, he bites the thong closest to his face to hold it and pulls the other thong with his free hand. Once hooded the bird is calm and seemingly unconcerned about his blinds. On his legs he wears a harness, caDcd jesses, by which he is kept captive, and quarter- ounce bells. When the bird has felled his prey he inadvertently jingles the bells, helping his owner to locate him if he is hidden by grass or bushes. When released the falcon can be called with a whisUe. Mr. Swaim uses a shrill British police whistle which can be heard up to half a mile, at times. The trick in traming the falcon is to bring him down to the artificial bait — a leather bag full of buckshot on which the food is placed. The bird comes to believe that he cannot move the artificial prey and so does not make off with the game he kills for the falconer. There are very few falconers in CaMfomia and each must pay S15 a year for a special hcense. This permits him to own not more than two hawks and he can only hunt with them under the rules applying to gun-hunters under the Fish and Game Code. If the falcon takes pheasants, for example, Mr. Swaim must have pheasant tags. While this discourse and exhibition were fascinating to the audience of about 200 people Sunday afternoon, many were disappointed that neither his birds, nor the Krider hawk owned and shown by Dave DeSalvo of Redlands, could not be flown. There were two reasons— When the birds are moulting — and Dave's has just begun "Maybe He'll Drop One Before November" Freer trade movement gathers momentum By wnxmsi s.

The other limitation was that the falconer must see where his bird comes down and retrieve it, which is not possible in orange grove, park and subdivision neighborhoods. That's why Jlr. Swaim goes to the open country near March Field. Even there, Aurora escaped recenUy and flew down to Santa .4nita to watch the ponies run, being recaptured there when her bells identified her.

But Honey, iktn mtatbtJelsef 'women rfoefs* who han not bttn iarited to Ladr BinTs luneheoral" WASHINGTON (UPIV-World War II is rapidly fading into history. ^Vhich is all right with me. Unfortunately, however, the veterans of that conflict are rapidly fading, too. i have seldom felt niore faded, old soldier-wise, than I did this week when my military alma mater, the U.S. Army, presented to the Smithsonian Institution a model of the original W II jeep. The doughty little vehicle will go on display later this month at the New York World's Fair and then will be permancnUy enshrined in the Smithsonian's collection of national keep sakes. What faded me was the sudden realization that most of the 660,000 jeeps made between 1941 and 1945 have already passed on to that great wrecking yard in the sky. The Army, which always did have trouble finding things, had to search far and wide before it finally located this one in a military depot in Korea. It was identified by its serial number — 2(M76135 — as a wartime model. But nothing of its military history or service record could be traced. This prompted Lt. Gen. Frank S. Besson Jr., who made the presentation, to liken the jeep to the "Unknown Soldier" which conjures up an heroic image. If its career could be documented, however, I suspect it would .show that old 20476i35 spent the war hauling gin to the officers' club at Camp Kilmer, N.J. John Magruder of the Smithsonian staff recalled that someone once credited jeeps with having "changed the course of history." He thereupon fell to musing as to bow history might have been influenced had the jeep been invented a few centuries earlier. •They would greatly simplified the winning of the West," Magruder said.

The United States Chamber of Commerce urges the Johnson Administration to reduce the list of items thus far barred from sale to Russia and the East European satellites. On the same day, it is disclosed in Paris that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's embargo on sales of certain goods to Soviet countries is to be moderately relaxed. As for the Soviet Union itself, it has been fairly clear here for months, and abundantly clear from Soviet sources in recent weeks, that Moscow wants increased trade with the West more than anything else. It wants this far more than it wants even that dubious form of "disarmament" for which the Russians are forever clamormg but toward which they have never been willing to accept sensible safeguards for inspection and enforcement. Trade, in a word, has become the one field in which even the most skeptical of hard-liners can see some possibility of real — and prudent — easing in cold- war tensions. For trade is the best weapon of the true conservative, as the altemative to the ultimate weapon of war. If the great contest between East and West can be centered on an economic stmggle, the American people should welcome it and never shrink from it. For if in this area of affairs the West, with its centuries of experience in free enterprise production and distribution, cannot lick the Communists, with theu: jer­ ry - built economic structure, then we are indeed in a bad way. But our system is just as good as we believe it is. Obviously, we can lick them here. High American policy now reflects this estimate of the plain reality. If the Russians and their associates really want to pit their economic know-how against ours in the world markets, they have got themselves a ball game. So, we are going to be prepared to listen to realistic proposals for increases in trade — so long as these proposals come from Communist states which are not threatenmg us or making war on our allies. There is not the slightest possibility of any rise in trade with the Chinese Communists or the North Vietnamese Communists, who make aggressions upon our friends in South Viet Nam. There is not the slightest possibility of any rise in trade with the North Koreans or the Castro Communists in Cuba. To the contrary, in all these cases. But there is a distinct possi- biUty of such increases with the Russians, the Poles, the Czechs and others of the European and nonbeUigerent Communist bloc— so long as they continue to show that they have given up open and convert aggression, through subversion, against the West.' In the reasons why the Soviets want more trade also lie the reasons why a great opportunity is now open to the West. They want it because the Soviet masses demand more and more consumer goods — a situation which happily puts more and more pressure upon the Soviet bosses to reduce military preoccupations. And they want it because of the existence of the immense Soviet - Red Chmese rift which is breaking up the monolith of international communism and turning the Russians somewhat more toward the West, if only in fear of the Chinese East. The chance is here for the West to exploit all this to profound advantage. For we can widen the Communist division by trading with those Communist states willing to maintain the peace and by denying all trade — and thus all hope for real economic advancement — to those Communist states which persist in techniques of aggression. This is how we shall bury communism in the end, if it is to be buried shore of war.

If a person with leukemia were cured would this prevent his getting cancer? A—Leukemia is considered to be cancer of the blood. In the victims, tumors of the spleen are almost always present. There may also be tumors of the lymph nodes and bone marrow. The newer dmgs used to treat this disease may control the growth of the tumors for several years but cannot be considered permanent cures. Whether successful or not, such treatment would have no bearing on the victim's susceptibility to a different form of cancer, Q—Three years ago at the age of 30 I had a hysterectomy.

Or suppose that Paul Revere had made his famous midnight ride in a jeep. According to Magruder, the Longfellow poem commemorating that event might have read like this: "It was two by the village clock "When be gunned his jeep into Concord town. "He slammed his gear into four-wheel drive "And set the farmers* dogs alive "As he beeped his horn as an alarm "For the country folks to be up and to arm." All in all, it was a very impressive ceremony and. frankly I choked up. Too much nostalgia in the carburetor, I guess. Since then I have times when I feel crampy and moody just as I used to when I expected my periods. Would the operation have anj-thing to do with these symptoms? ^Vhere does the blood go that I normally would have lost with my periods? .•\—Y'ou have undergone a surgical menopause. This may be partially responsible for your symptoms. The blood you would normally have lost doesn't go anywhere. Menstrual bleeding is a part of the preparation for tho renewal of the uterine wall to receive a fertilized ovum. With the uterus removed this is no longer possible. Q—What are the symptoms of hardening of the arteries of the brain? What can be done about it? A—Cerebral arterioscleros 1 s may cause a wide variety of symptoms depending on the part" of the bram that is damaged. One of the commonest results is what is known as a little stroke. The victim undergoes a change of personality — becomes untidy, noisy or profane where he was formerly neat, quiet and respectful. There is no cure for damage that has already been done but steps can sometimes be taken to check the process. These would include getting more rest, drugs to reduce the abnormally high blood pressure, diet to reduce overweight, cut- gmg out smoking and m carefully selected cases the use of a tranquilizer or drugs to enlarge the smaller blood vessels. Q—Is it harmful to drink coffee that has been reheated? I have heard that this develops some chemical that constructs the blood vessels. A—Coffee beans are roasted before you buy them so when you make fresh coffee t h e grounds are reheated. Reheating does no harm but the caffeine in coffee, fresh or reheated, is a mild blood vessel constiictor.
