Page 20 REDUNDS, CAlffORNIA MAY 6, 1964 Stick to the deadlines; stick to the laws California is plagued in 1964 with public figures of bad judgment, including Gov. Edmund Brown, who do not seem to care if they ci-eate chaos by unsettUng the conduct of the Primary Election. With the mai'king of absentee ballots having begun on Monday, Harold Stassen still had before the federal court a plea that his name be put on the Republican Presidential ballot Recognizing that it was too late for such an injunction, U.S. District Judge Burke tm-ned Stassen down. He said that to grant his request would result "in in-eperable hai-m and injuiy to the people of California." I\Iayor Sam Yorty of Los Angeles showed no more concern tlian Stassen when he successfully went to court and induced the judges to extend the time for checking the validity of voter signatui-es on his petitions. This was only necessary because he bungled so badly in the cii-culation of his petition. The Legislature passed a bill which in our county changes the closing time at the polls from 8 p.m. to 7 p.m. The change was correct but was enacted so late that the precinct cards, showing the voting hours, had already been printed — as they should be at this date. So, they all have to be coirected by hand stamping. Gov. Edmund Brown proposed on April 2S that the election code be amended with a one-shot bill which A^-ould permit Senator Clair Engle to have his name withdrawn from the Democratic ballot. This would have a'cated no end of confusion. Many absentee ballots have already been mailed out and some have been voted. Ballots for the regular polling places would have to bo reprinted, or Engle's name would have had to be stamped out by hand. Fortunately for Califomians, the Legislature provided a check on tliis wild sciieme. Tlie Governor's measure w^as killed I\Ionday in tlie Senate elections committee. Senator Reagan admitted tliat the bill, which he was can-jing for the Governor, was dead after no member of tiie committee would make any kind of motion on it. The bill was that bad. . What wo are seeing in Sacramento is a belief in the veiy highest office — that of Governor — that it is quite air right to manipulate the election laws. Setting the e.vample, I\Ir. Brown shows no understanding of the fact that we have had elections of unquestioned integrity in Cal- ifomia because they have been conducted under stable laws tiiat represent long experience. The law is not frivolous in setting deadlines by which candidates and election officials must perform certain acts. The law is not winking when it requires a candidate to sign an oath that: "If nominated I will accept Uie nomination and not withdi-aw. . . ." The law has good and sufficient i-cason for pro\iding enough time for each stop in the election process to be .carried out. With undue haste, clerical mistakes and typographical errors on ballots could be expected. Let the Governor and the Legislature rc- imn to the custom of changing the election code in non-election years, and only in non- election years. So enter the state (Riverside Press) In tlie coui-se of testifjing in behalf of the proposed Constitutional amendment which beai-s his name, and which would permit religious e.xercises in public schools. New York's Rep. Frank Becker was asked by one member of the House Judiciai-y Committee ^•hy prayer and Bible recitation shouldn't be left to tlie home and church. "Because," said Mr. Becker, "there are million of families who do not support, sub- sciibe to, or participate in any religion, and then- children are not aware that there is any God or Creator." And so enter ilie state. And govci-nment imposed religious training. That's tlie Becker Amendment, from its chief spokesman's own mouth, and we want no part of such an amendment and cannot imagine that anyone else tiiily believing in traditional and well-advised church-state separation will want any part of it. Even if what Mi*. Becker contends is true, any proper remedy lies with church and home, not in the public school classrooms cuid not in the hands of government.

Just a few weeks ago it was the Beatles; right now it's Shakespeare. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Hoore Robert W. Tosh, who is madly in love with .Mt. San Gorgonio, once again returned from the Joffy summit this last week end and reported to us a geographical discovery — the highest lake in all of Southern California. This tarn lies at an elevation of 10.560 feet in (lie saddle which is immediately south- cast of the 11,502-foot peak. "Last September I was there with John and Jeanne Goodman, looking for mountain -sheep," Bob reported. "At that time there was no water in the saddle. "As everyone knows who climbs Grayback, the ground is composed of sand and water will sink right into it. "The lake is created by the melting mow on slopes which drain in three directions into the .saddle. I don't suppose that it will last very long. "I took some pictures of it in color."' Bob did not propose a name for it but by right of discovery it should rightfully be called Tosh Tarn. (Or would the jokers quickly u-anspose that into Gosh Darn?) It is strange that he should be able to find something new on Grayback since according to his research that mountain was first climbed in the 1870s. Peo- l)lc who are e.xhiliratcd by achieving high summits have been climbing San GoVgonio in ever-increasing numbers until on certain summer days there arc enough on top at one time to organize two baseball teams. However, tlie traffic is very light at the time when water would be found in Tosh Tarn. When skiers arc attracted to the top the ridge is covered with snow and the water — or ice — would not be exposed. In summer the saddle is bare. It anyone has ever been there before and seen the tarn, they have not made their observation widely known. Bob made the hike by the most strenuous route one can imagine at this season — up from Poop Out Hill to Dry Lake, down in the Whitewater to Xorth Fork Meadow and then up to the Saddle and down into Mill Creek. He had a couple of boys with him from La Verne College where he does some teaching. They ought to be awarded some sort of medal for this, say, "Mt. Everest, Junior Grade." Now Bob is planning a foray into the upper reaches of Barton Creek on the north slope of Mt. San Bernardino. There he is going to look for some- thmg of which others know, but few have seen. Bob says that at just the right season one can find some caves — low and shallow, we suppose — in which the dripping water has formed sta- lagtitcs and stalagmites of ice. .May, presumably, is the right month in 1961 for this quest. Meanwhile, the future of the San Gorogonio Wilderness Area is the subject of a continuous campaign to open the Dry Lake section to ski lift development and of a counter-campaign to preserve the whole area intact. On behalf of San Gorgonio Ski Lifts Inc. (the lifts are proposed — not existing) Gene Hall- slrand has presented the syndicates' story to numerous clubs in this area. Last week he made important political progress by changing the position of the Board of Supervisors from "opposed" to neutral on a proposed federal government hearing on the ski development plans.

WASHINGTON (UPI)—There is a new book on the market now that is so bold, daring and novel in concept it may start a whole new trend in literature. It isn't se.\y. The name of the book is "Boys and Other Beasts," and as far as I have been able to determine it is the first unsexy book that has been published since "The Bobbsey Twins. The author of this startling innovation is Barbara I^ang, an attractive young woman who lives in New York. She was visiting here this week, which gave me an opportunity to discuss it with her. "That was a clever idea you had, OTiting a book that underplays sex," I said. "Did you omit the four-letter words on purpose, or did you- just not know any?" Shocking Book "I wanted to write something really shocking," she replied, "and I decided that a good, clean book would shock the readers more than anything else." To show you how clean it is. in Chicago that had "Boys and Other Beasts" filed in the "nature" section. What makes this approach even more unusual is the fact that the book is aimed at a teen-age audience. At least that was my impression. Miss Lang claimed she wasn't aiming at anything. At any rate, the book deals with some of the problems that young gurls are likely to encounter when they start having dates with boys. Problems like parents, for instance. "I don't think very many teen - agers are reading the book," Miss Lang said. "I thmk most of the readers are parents of teen-agers." "Apparently they want to know what advice you would be giving the teen-agers if the teen-agers were reading it," I said. Lot of TroubIt 'It isn't meant to be advice," Miss Lang said. "If a gu:l took this to be a book of advice, she could get into a lot of trouble following it." I doubt she cotdd get in too LOS ANGELES - California Democrats will name a Senator in their June primary and at the very least sharply nudge President Johnson on his choice for Vice-President. Republicans here are so completely absorbed in theur Presidential primary, which will determine whether party control will pass to their right wing, they have virtually written off the Senate race. Democrats have no Presidential problem but now find themselves obUged to make a clear choice for the Senate between nostalgia for John F. Kennedy and loyalty to Gov. Edmund G. Brown, who has a chance to be Johnson's Vice-President and, failing that, will still be Governor. The inevitable withdrawal of the ailing incumbent. Sen Clair Engle, has left them with no place to hide. Brown backed State Controller .-Man Cranston before Engle withdrew. Their calculations were upset when White House press secretary Pierre Salinger at the last possible moment boldly wTapped the Kennedy-Johnson colors about him and look the plunge- In these closing weeks the rival candidates, liberals both, are finding it hard to reach far enough for voters to grasp a real difference between them on issues. Both realize the dangers of getting lost in the struggle for state party control and' a Vice-Presidential battle which could become passionate and perilous. Their own assets and liabilities remain substantially unaltered. Since Engle's withdrawal the bulk of the party establishment, including the Congressional delegation, has backed Cranston. This gives him the advantage of well-known names for whom Democrats are accustomed to vote- It is too soon to tell how the Engle vote will divide in practice. Salinger's dramatic entry onto the scene gave him a communications advantage which probably still obtains. He enjoyi the support of Assembly Speaker Jesse Unnih, an adroit politician with considerable leverags on sources of campaign fimds. Because Unruh also has enemies and carries on an envenomed power dispute with the Governor, he is not endorsing Salinger pubhcly. Colorful in person and in action, Salinger enjoys instant identification. Once a piano prodigy, he has the theatrical talent to use it to his advantage. But he also has discovered its disadvantages in that he is expected always to produce t h • ready quip, the joking allusion to his days close to the Presidential throne. He is also playing down the early "Sweethearts for Salinger" touch typified in the red and white "P.S- I Love You" campaign buttons arranged in a heart shape on the headquarters notice board- The new ones say "Pierre Salinger for U. S. Senator" in sober blue on white. In small gatherings and supermarkets his touch is increasingly sure. After he has wrapped the Kennedy mantle about him, he deftly whips enough of it away so as to appear modest- Often a clear copy appears of the style to which he became accustomed in seven years with John F. Kennedy. Salinger's belated decision to bring forth the late President's sister, .Mrs. Peter Law^ord, as co-manager is probably an acknowledgment of Cranston's growing organization power. Against it Salinger's greatest . weapon remains the emotion attached to the Kennedy memory. There is some question about whether the volunteer armies of the California Democratic Council have dwindled in prosperity, but so far no Democrat has won statewide without its endorsement, which Cranston has. CDC is a pet Unruh hate and vice versa. They will do more because he is in the picture. (CopiTight. 1964, by U n i t e d Feature Syndicate, Inc.) THE DOCTOR SAYS Trichinosis, long known, still takes heavy tell By Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt • When the cause of a disease and effective preventive measures have been known for more than 100 years, it should come as a shock to learn that some 27 miUion persons in the United States have that disease. Yet this is the case with trichinosis, an infestation with a microscopic worm. Fortunately, it is so mild in most of the victims that they don't know they have it. In man it is caused by eating raw or inadequately cooked products from hogs which are infested with trichinae. The worm in a resting stage becomes encysted in the animal's muscles and, when the pork is eaten, the digestive juices dissolve the cysts and the worms become active in t h e intestinal tract. Although they do not harm directly they leave behind myriads of youngsters (larvae) that penetrate the intestinal wall and are carried in the blood or lymph stream to the muscles of the victim. There they in turn go into a resting stage but if there are enough of them they set up an inflammatory reaction. This causes the victim to have fever, weakness, headache and soreness in the involved mus- Mlss Langc found a bookstore I much trouble, however, because Telefips TOP SHOW: — 7:30.

She pointed out that books of advice cover such theoretical questions as whether a gurl should let a boy kiss her goodnight. Her book, on the other hand, examines such important practical questions as how to keep him from it. If a girl doesn't want to be kissed. Miss Lang recommends eating an apple. She claims that nothing will discourage a boy's osculative ambitions quite so effectively as the sight of a girl chomping on a winesap. Which shows that things have certainly changed a lot since the Garden of Eden. cles. A massive infestation may may be caused by a high concentration of the parasites in the heart museles- Until recently there was no cure for this disease but thia bendazole, a drug that has long been used to treat a variety of infestations in animals. It has now been tried on a human subject with excellent results. The best treatment, however, is still prevention and this consists of relus'mg to eat any pork products that have not been thoroughly cooked. Of course, pork found on government inspection to be infested is condemned. There are still some persons who have a decided preference for raw pork and even they can protect themselves by storing the meat in a deep freeze at 0 degrees for 24 hours or at 3 degrees for three weeks. Q—I have been taking Ortho- novura pills for 3 months and have noticed that I have to urinate frequently. Does this drug harm the kidneys? A—Orthonovum is a synthetic steroid hormone. With the proper dosage it causes no serious side effects in normal persons but if urinalysis shows that you have a kidney disease you should discontinue its uss as it may aggravate the condition.
