Page 16 REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA MAY 8, 1964 Desert strike The band will play. Soldiers will parachute. Sentry dogs will attack. Crowds %vill swarm. It will be Aniied Forces Day at Norton tomorrow. Once again everyone in the valley will have a chance to see the weapons that help to keep the peace. But this time. Armed Forces Day will have a little different feel. It comes a week early in 1964 to get ahead of "Desert Strike," the greatest military exercises held in our region since General Patton trained and hardened his lank force to drive the Germans from the rim of North Africa. Somehow, this is different. ''Desert Strike" is not an exhibition — not a public show. It is a dead eai-nest military exercise. That's why a convoy headed east from Redlands Wednesday on the State Highway to Barton Flats and in spite of the unseasonal snow storm, went up to set up their radar gear on the Santa Ana-Bear Valley divide. (It must seem like Washington at Valley Forge to the men.) That's why "hot" aircraft of the Tactical Air Command, fueled in flight, will arrive at Norton tomorrow — probably during the Armed Forces Exercises. That's why some 1400 officers and men are moving into tlie Redlands end of the Ah- Base and setting up a headquartei-s. These things, and many more in I^Iay 1964, will remove that air of unreality that somehow attaches to the Armed Forces in the absence of a Woiid Wai". Peiiiaps it is lime wc had this stern reminder of the trae nature of tlie Ai-med might of America. Don't wag the dog The rights of Negro cliildi-en are not violated because they must attend a school which is predominately Negi'o for the reason that it serves a Negro neighborhood. That's what the U. S. circuit Court held in the Gary, Indiana case. Monday the U. S. Supreme Court chose to let the decision stand. The Negro parents had ai-gued in their appeal that: "School systems which are administered so that all or nearly all the Negro childi-en attend schools, separate and apart from all or nearly all the w^hite students, are no less segregated than those systems where separate Negro schools ai-e mandated by state constitution or statute." To this the Gary school system rciilied with an argument that found favor with the court, and witli wiiich many laymen will concur. Tlie school system aj-gued that it is not "a redevelopment commission, or a resettlement commission . . . but being a school system must take residential patterns as it finds them f.nd accomodate children by furnishing school facilities as near as reasonably may be to their homes." The Circuit Court said the Negro parents' position "is grounded on the fundamental theory that their right to be integrated in school is such an over-riding purpose that little, if any, considex-ation need be given to the safety of children, convenience of pupils and their parents, and costs of the operation of school system." In short, the tail should not wag the dog. Not this 'pillow talk' A chemistry professor has come up with the assertion that people should be taught things wiiile they sleep. There is so much to learn these days, he says, that we can't afford to waste the time we spend sleeping. He accepts the theory (rejected by some psychologists) that it is possible to develop wholesome methods of utilizing the subconscious and thus make learning a 24-hour, around-the-clock, never-a-second-wasted project. Well, this may be fine for the professor. But some of us want to be left alone when we hit the hay and not have the old noggin stuffed with knowledge we don't even know is going into it Aside fi'om the old-fashioned belief that a guy desen^es a little rest from li-ying to cope with what confuses him when he's awake, it would be doggoned disconcerting to go to sleep knowing that the privacy of your dreams is going to be invaded by some chai'- acter wiio probably ought to be asleep himself instead of poking into your subconscious mind. We don't know whether such carryings-on would be illegal, improper or unnatural. But we do have tlie distinct feeling they would be unnerving. Please go away, professor, and let a tired man sleep. If a real beat guy can't relax tlien, when can he? The Newsreel The industiy decides to take the glamor out of tobacco advertising. It >vill be comforting to learn that homely folks can smoke, too. In the second house from the corner a debate rages as to whether the family should buy the sportiest of the compact cars or the most compact of the sports cars. Motlier is working extra hard these days, getting the house in shape so that the family can take over and let her rest on Her Day. With a Grain Of Salt By Frank and Bill Moore When Col. Walker (Bud) JIu- hurin bought the house at 535 East Mariposa drive 10 years ago, Redlandcrs soon came to know him as a man with a moving story to tell. A member of the elite fraternity of aviators called "Aces", he had shot doH -n 21 German and Japanese planes during World War II. During the Korean conflict he felled three Russian .MIGS before his luck ran out. Anti-aircraft downed his jet and he was taken prisoner. It was a sober Bud Muhurin who travelled the luncheon club circuit in Redlands. telling of his priNoncr -of-war experiences in a piiilosophical and moving way. Yesterday he flew from Los Angeles back to Norton, where he had served in Air Defense, but this time as a civilian, to talk at the Armed Forces day luncheon. Although he now wears heavy framed glasses, and looks like a prosperous lawyer, he talks with the quick wit that is often the mark of his breed. (Sample: "I'm so old I can remember when the Boy Scouts was an organization for kids instead of adults.") At the same time, he manages to be keen about the history of flight, back to the days before he was born and about deep space travel that may not be done until after he is gone. His backward look forciiscs on the A\r .Museum at Ontario where airplanes of all vintage are on display. This is a labor of love among men who arc aviators by inclination. "We have young engineers working on the Apollo," he says, "who have never even seen a wooden frame aircraft". He and his museum associates think that a sense of the past is essential to those who are working so far into the future. They restore historic airplanes and fly them. Currently they are fixing up a British Spitfire, a report that must have pleased the R.AF officer in the audience at Norton yesterday. When it comes to looking ahead. Col. .Alahurin takes oi; the cap of an airplane buff and speaks in the role of Depuly Director. Advance Programs. .Space and Information Systems Divi.-,ion of North .Xmerica. "In our office, when wc speak of Old Business, we mean put- ling a man on the moon." he quips. "You can imagine what comes under our heading of New Businesis." Pausing to speak of "Old Business" he talked briefly of project Apollo. "The launching vehicle at Cape Kennedy stands 369 feet tall — so high that the three astronauts can collect flight pay for just getting up there on top of it." Such rockets, he said, represent the "dinosaur age" of missilery. They have to be so tremendous because we don't yet know how to make them smaller. B u t when nuclear power is eventually applied, the dinosaurs will go into limbo and the space ships will fly at the speed of light. It doesn't bother hira that some ph.vsicists say this prediction doesn't scan with Einstein's theory. He is confident that man will escape not only Planet Earth but the solar system. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, scientists are working on the theory that if they can 't put lead shielding against radiation into the moon space ship, maybe they can increase the tolerance of astronauts to radiation. Within the last three weeks, he revealed, it has been found that by changing the molecular structure of 2-4-D — an agricultural chemical well Welcome Neighbor Washington Window Bay of Pigs invasion ... a misunderstanding Redlands Yesterdays FIVE YEARS AGO Temperatures — Highest SI lowest 52. .Mrs. Irene W.

But here is the kicker: At the same time it is curing cancer in laboratory rats. That doesn't mean. Col. Mahurin cautioned, that it will be effective against cancer in man — but maybe it wUI. If it can be made to work against human cancer, then this "fallout", alone, would make that $20 billion trip to the Moon worthwhile.

By DICK WEST "Of coarse, you neUu ihot bf buying ihh mJenieh priced Amtrkm-made 'sports cor*—you're pegged us!" WASHINGTON (UPD—Each year between the "Oscar' awards for motion picture achievement and the "Emmy" awards for television achievement I present the annual "Gim­ me" awards. The "Gimme" awards originally were devised as a means of saluting.both public servants and private citizens for distinguished achievement in the field of deficit spending. I now find, however, that persons who perform outstanding feats in that category are being accorded recognition elsewhere. The Meramec Caverns at Stanton, Mo., has established a "Hole of Fame" as a means of honoring those who have done the most to put themselves or others in arrears financially. Billie Sol Its list of honorees, whose portraits have been installed at the bottom of the cave, include such famous deficit spenders as Billie Sol Estes and Joe Louis, who got behind $1,250,000 in in come taxes. There is no point in my duplicating the "Hole of Fame," so I have broadened the "gim­ me" awards to include distinguished achievement in other categories that might otherwise go unrecognized. The first award is for distinguished achievement in the field of congressional modesty. And the winner is Rep. Ed Foreman, R-Tex. A recent news release issued by this first-term congressman contained the following sentence "From a position of respect for his fast rise to leadership in the House, Foreman said he expresses the opinion of millions of Americans." Excessive Work The ne.xt award is for distinguished achievement in the field of forecasting the obvious outcome of a congressional hearing. It goes to Rep. Joe Pool, D-Tex. Announcing a subcommittee invesUgaUon of "excessive federal paperwork," Pool confidently predicted that "after completion of the hearings, reports will be printed." The third award is for patri- oUsm over and beyond the call of duty at a White House reception. It goes to Rep. Otis G. Pike, D-N. Y., who described such an occasion thusly: "I was talking with the President the other evening. "He said, 'May I?' All he wanted was my wife, who looked lovely. I said, 'Of course, Mr. President,' and as they waltzed off together, I said to myself, *' 'Ask not what your country can do for you; 'Ask what you can do for your country'." By Lyle C. Wilson The Bay of Pigs disgrace is back in the news in what appears to be a re-assessment of the shame and blame. Both are in ample supply in the story of U.S. policy toward Fidel Castro's Cuba. Remember the Bay of Pigs? The invasion took place in April, 1961, and was established in a matter of hours as a disaster comparable in some respects to the sitting duck array of U.S. offensive power at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The admiral and the general commanding at Pearl Harbor on that day of infamy became the sacrificial goats to appease an outraged American public. Young John F. Kennedy, only three months in the White House, instantly accepted responsibility for the Bay of Pigs disaster. Some of his associates offered to share the blame with the recently departed Eisenhower administration, but Kennedy stood firm that the blame was his. Private Feelings That was the President's pubbc position. His private position was that the Joint Chiefs of Staff had goofed. Kennedy stated his indictment of Joint Chiefs in language so vigorous—in spots unprintable-as to shock fascinated listeners. On one occasion. Kennedy sounded off to a small group of newsmen who accompanied him on his government airplane. All but one of the group were regulars around t h e White House, veteran Washington reporters who knew the difference between a news conference and a statement that was not intended to go beyond the circle of persons then present. The junior member almost got his story into print but was foiled by a White House plea to his editor. Kennedy's assessment of the Bay of Pigs disaster was that the Joint Chiefs were responsible for letting the invasion take place at all. He had not much blame for the Central Intelligence Agency w'nich was under' a heavy cannonade of popular criticism. "Never again." Kennedy said with angry feeling, "will I rely entirely on military advice." Goes To Defense Kennedy's assessment of responsibility for the Bay of Pigs fiasco may or may not have been fair and accurate. Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara tended to defend the Joint Chiefs when compelled to discuss the matter. At a time o£ congressional demands that the Joint Chiefs be fired, McNamara was cornered in a news conference and went all out in their defense. This was more than a month after the Bay of Pigs invasion. Continued silence by McNamara would have been interpreted as conceding the chiefs responsibility for the invasion disaster. Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, just out of office, was quieOy but sharply critical of some of the military judgment involved in the invasion. He was astonished that the attempt was made without air cover, the lack of which appears to have been Kennedy'! prime responsibility. General Ike also was surprised at some of the logistic preparations and because the invaders lacked intelligence infor- mafion which should have been rather easily obtained. The Joint Chiefs were not abashed. Adm. Arleigh A. Burke, chief of naval operations, held that Kennedy had misunderstood the Joint Chiefs. Burke told a Press Club audience that if be had it to do over again he would make sirs that the people in the White House understood what he said to them. DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Operation for hernia not always successful Dy Dr. Wayne G. Brandstadt SELL IT TOMORROW With low - cost Classified Ads Q—.About three years a;o I was operated on for a hernia. .About six months ago it came back and 1 have been wearing a truss ever since. I am 60 and don't want another operation if I can help it. .•\—Every surgeon in repairing a rupture tries to insure that it will not recur but this sometimes happens even with the best of surgery. Tne only danger involved with this t>T3e of hernia is strangulation — the locking of a segment of intestine in the hernial sac. If your hernia slips back in place easily when you lie on your back and if your truss keeps it from protruding when you are up, there is no harm in treating it in this way.

THE ALMANAC Today is Friday, May 8. the 129th day of 19« with 237 to follow. The moon is approaching its new phase. The morning star is Saturn. The evening star is Venus. On this day in history: In 1541, Hernando De Soto and a company of Spanish explorers discovered the Mississippi River near the present site of Memphis, Tenn. In 1942, Vice President Henry Wallace coined a new phrase when he said: "The century on which we are now entering can be and must be the century of the common man." In 1945, President Truman annoimced the end of the war in Europe on VE Day. In 1958, former Vice President Ni.xon, touring South America at the time, was spat upon by leftist students in Lima, Peru. • A thought for the day—American author Nathaniel Hawthorne said: "Mountains are earth's undecaying monu- mentr." be? My doctor says I have a yeast diarrhea. Does this kind of infection come back after it IS cured? .A—There are at least 15 kinds of yeast or fungus that may cause disease in man. but none of these diseases primarily attacks the intestines. Some attack the s'tdn: others the lungs or brain. Diarrhea could be a complication of a number of fungus diseases. They vary widely in the degree of contagiousness. Q—A friend of mine has blood in his urine all the time. Is this because he is an alcbo- holic? .A—This is always a sign of serious trouble. Alcohol is not a cause but your friend should have a doctor find the tru» cause without delay. Q—I read where a woman was nearly blind and she took Hetra- zen and was cured. Whera could I get this drug? .A—It is true that dietbylcar- bamazine (Hetrazan) can save the sight of a person whose eye involvement is due to the tropical parasitic disease, oncho­ cerciasis. It would be of no value in persons with any other kind of eye disease. Q—My nephew, 52, had a blood tumor removed about seven years ago. It seems to b« coming back. What should ho do now? A—Your nephew should be examined to determine whether ha is having a return of the same condition or whether a different kind of tumor is developing. In either case it woiUd seem wise to have it removed completely. One Minute Pulpit Jesus said. For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind. — John 9:39. Certainly, no revolution that has ever taken place in society can be compared to that which has been produced by the words of Jesus Christ. — Mark Hopkins. .NOTICE TO CREOITOKS No. 33481 Superior Court of the State of CaU- fomia. tor the County of San Bernardino.
