ikOB SIX DISPATCH "Dm6(S!R^T^...^klAH. CALIFORNIA Initiative Battle !*—(Continued from Paae 1)~ iSTlile as a country schooltnostar and ended as the father oi: the Tennessee Valley Authority and .'tJip Muscle Shoals development for public power. _JMorris wrote the Neljjraska con- fititutional amendment which created the unicameral legislature foi: that state back in 1934, and make no mistake about it. Proponents of the California plan have studied the unicameral idea jxnd will loan heavily upon It. As a practical matter, what doer, the California plan portend? It seems to pomt, quite definitely, toward an apportionment idea ^ whereby the people of the large | metropolitan areas, such as Ld? Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland: apd so on, might pipe the legislative tune to which the rural areas of the state v/ould be required to fljipcp. Krsr obviously, the densely populated areas might have an cane u the senate was subjected to • a population apportionment plan. Eventually, it Is conceivable that. Munson Fortifies For Br'dway Boys Realizing that Ills tcain Is on the proverbial ."hot spot" when they meet the Broadv/ay Clowns in a basketball game at the high school gym Sunday night, player- coach of Knudsen-Munson, in order to strengthen his squad, swallowed his pride and prevailed upon the Ukiah Tire Shop to release] Uklah's greatest basketball player and permit him to play lor the; Knudsen-Munson quintet that nifjht. The game will start prompt-1 ly at 8:15. • ' I When notified that he had been : drafted to play for the K-M boys, | fjlno Stridor, who has often been i compared to Herman Wedemeyer ! for his great athletic ability, mod- 1 estly stated, "If I score 20 or 30 points, will that be enough?" Stridor, a local boy whose fame has slowly reached statewide prominence, has ravaged the courts throughout the county for years, In latev years, the Fort ] Bragg town team has broker) relations with the local league when- Sfote Hospimt Employees Go to o Parly BTIIDAY, JANUARY '2, 10^8 • ever It became known Strider was tl>e-abolishment of the senate in which today, for example, the sehator from Mono and Inyo counties, who represents eight or possibly ten thousand people at the most, has an equal vote with the senator from Los Angeles county, wKo represents about three and a half million persons. From the standpoint of representation alone, and tV^e loity yipwpoint of majority ' rule, it .would appear at first blush that the vociferous proponents of qJiange in the manner of selecting -the legislature ha^'e just about everything iii their favor. ^ lYet a second look at the picture Is; morgl. revealing. Not without reason does a strictly 2-bouse legislature, as at present in California, constitute what is called the federal plan of assembly. . Xt is patterned almost exactly after the congress of the United 'Sfales, which was devised by our founding fathers only after a lot of tJWught, having' closely in mind what was perhaps the grandest assemblage known to man up to that tiijfie—the Parliament of England. "There was a cogent reason why jllj^^ foimding fathers created the united States senate and apportioned its membership to the statfcs lie-equal basis of two each, in- steaid 6f by population. The men .v^>i<> drafted the constitution plan- lieA the senate as a balance -."heel •~as a.deliberative body unswayed by the gusty and ephemeral passions which move a less august gjrftup of delegates rhore closely allied to the grass roots of a'con­ stituency • ; Jtis as a balance wheel that the California- state senate operates, according to the argument which will be advance^ by those who oppose the initiative, th^y will say that it is the. sent^te which" brings c6ol temper, seasoned judgment, a broad and less ebullient view to public affairs than is furnished by the; comparatively rough-and-tumble assembly. Labor suppprters of the proposed measure are reported to be thoroughly realistic in the reasons tbe,v advance for espousing Jt. They believe, and rightly so, that th!?, voting strength of labor lies in tlie. largo city populations. They believe, with some reason, that country areas, on the whole, are inclined more toward conserva- tisip than metropolitan districts. They think—and there is merit in their contention—that labor has received more hostile vot^s from rural area senators than from either senators or assemblymen from city streets. ; Ergo, they'd like to do away with equal rural representation and fall back upon representation more closely tied to population figures. It's as simple as that. Whether they succeed, or not, is another matter. There will unquestionably be almost 7,"0 per cent opposition from the rural districts, and many a city voter, conservative in his thinking, and fearful of what may come from tampering with the present system, will vote right along with the country opposition. •There's a real ballot box battle shaping up. A great individual duel Is expected between Henry Blackburn, all-conference player from Xavier University, and Strider, a product of the local high school. Basketball League To Resume Play January 5 The Ukiah Basketball League Will resume play the first o'f next week, when the last two games of the first half of the schedule will begin.

Also at the Broadrfus home for Christmas were their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gilley of Alameda, and another daughter, Pauline Broaddus, of Palo Alto. This is the first Christmas for over five years when all of the family have been together. SISTERS ARE THANKFUL JT PAYS TO TRADE IN UKIAH The grateful Dominican Sisters of the Albertinum Orphanage are firm believers in the old adage, "Pennies make dollars," since the day Mr. George O'Quest rang the door bell of the convent and handed Sister Superior what looked to be an ordinary Christmas package. Imagine her surprise when she found it to be as heavy as a gold brick, and a vertiable treasure. The sisters wish to thank their kind friends and benefactors for their generous contribution to their work for dependent and underprivileged children. VISITING MOTHER TAKEN ILL Mr. and Mrs. Errol Bradford of 425 Jones street have been hosts to Mrs. Bradford's mother, Mrs. Esther Malandrino of Napa. Christmas excitement proevd too much for Mrs. Malandrino and she has been confined to her bed under the care of Dr, Arthur Miller, ! Presiding at the jury trial of John Heedy of Healdsburg last wfeek, Superior Jiadge Lilburn Gibson; of Ukiah, laid aside the rules of practice long; enough for some hfart-to-heart.talks after the jury, had delivered their verdict The report Of the matter shows that after Judge Gibson had thanked the jury, be mentioned that there, are few countries in the . world today, wher4 one can ask and receive a jury trial. - ^ It Was 'then that Arthur W. Folger of Healdsburg, a DryCreek valley ranchman and foreman of the jury, arose- and said: ".Your honor, I presume this is irregular, I have hot served as a juryman before. Could I addres.s you far a moment?" Upon receiving the Court's permission, he .cpritinued: . "I siiriplyi On behalf of the jury, wish to thank ypvi :and the ofticers of the court for the eflfbrt to expedite the- casej and the courtesy we have been shoWn-^and on my own behalf; as a' layman. We so often hear so many^ remarks slighting our judicial procedure, of the technicalities, of. the means of evasion. And on my own behalf I v/ould'like to say that your conduct of the case and the treatment accorded,us by the oflicers of the court has been such as to fortify my own belief in this institution, which you have ju^t told .us is so much a part of our way of life. "I wanted to thahk Your Honor particularly for that, and extend my feelings to the' other officers of the court." . ' Continuing along much in the same vein, Judge Gibson replied: "I think that while we are here and having a little family discussions here—so to speak—that it might not be out of place for me to say what I have often said 'before—that there ought to be more of our citizens come into the courtroom an.d see what actually goes on. We see ridiculous representation of pur court procedure in the picture shows.'. We see things in newspapers that do not always truly depict the proceedings in the courts. "Out in the outlying districts, like Santa Rosa ana Ukiah, the newspapermen usually,iget things pretty accurate; ' "I have gone Into'courts in San Francisco, for instance, and tried cases there and then see writeups about it in the newspapers the next day and wouldn't recognize it as being the same case at all. "And I ani particularly gratified to see these youngsters (a. group of high school and junior college-age boys and girls who closely followed arjguments and instrucfions) sitting around in ,court durLi'g the trial of this case and getting first-hand information. Oftentimes we try important cases when the courtroom is bare. I thinlc. it is a splendid thing for the citizens and it is a good token vvhen we see the youngsters coming into court and seeing how these trials are conducted. " vfery much, and you may be excused, and we wish you all a Merry. Christmas and a Happy New Year." Reedy, a Healdsburg resort owner, was charged with manslaughter, in the death of Ettore Podesta, his dishwasher, who died after a fall through the porch railing. The state sought to show that Reedy had knocked Podesta through the railing. The "not guilty" verdict was unanimous. It was termed the "piecemeal" trial. The growth of the Redwood Valley Nursery, since its openmg last January, is. almost incredible. It was started by Mrs. Helen' L- Scholl 'and .Elaine and Paul Imje up in Redwood valley, and'*grdw out of bounds, demanding a location nearer .the center of their market. They are now located on,South State street next to the Frozen Food'Lockers, having moved there in October.

Mr. and Mrs. William Driskill will be in ch&rge, with sufficient help, to take care of all comers.

Soap, bluing and bleaching are furnished as a part of the service. Roy Hurt is the owner of'the business. The 25 initial washing machines are only a part of the contemplated equipnient. Another 10 machines will be added, along with other laundry equipment as the demand for them develops.

FederEd Farm Labor Camps First is the matter of California's federal Farm Labor Camps, and second, the condition of the schools of the, state. , • , . With regard to: the Farm Labor Camps, most, of which are now leased to non-profit organizations of farmers, the governor said the whether the state will take, them over. : - •. . Proposals have ' been made to make the camps a state project, but before he can present the matter to the legislature; the gever- npr said mere infprmatipn is nec-jji^. esfary from federal officials in Washington. This information concerns the capital; outlay for tho camps; the " price if the state takes them over,; whether any terms and conditiortS| would be imposed if they­ signed to the state, and what • would happen in the future if the state assumed the responsibility and later changed its mind, : ' The.governor wrote for this information several months ago, he said, and to date it.has not been received from the federal agency in charge of the camps. "It. is essential that the camps be operated,'' said the governor. '.'If they are not, tin even greater prqbleni will arts? in connectlorf-i >with; rural housing." He pointed put that the rural housing probleni, particularly for farm Ipbor,. is paramount at tlie present time, citini;,the instance of Stiuthern California citrus growers whoivaht to import Mexicans and jRu'eito Ricans, largely because housing cannot be provided for California's 'own= migrant 'residents. ' Impoverished School Districts At the same time • the governor said that "at least $10,000^000 would be requested for California's impoverished school districts." •This announcement followed decision of the State Allocation Board to postpone allocation of $20,000,000 voted by the 1947 legislature to reli-'ve the districts, andU, provide more facilities for schpou • children,, until more requests for aid have reached the board, and | greatest need could be determined first. The original .appropriation wasV $30,000,000 and this was cut $10,i%l 000,000 by Governor Warren when he signed, the bill..Already the . allpcatipns . board says, requests have topped. .$23,000,000. "During the next ' five . years, when the crop ,pf war babies reaches schopl age, we are going to need, more school rooms and more facilities for their educatiom" the governor,said. "The exact figure to be asked of the legislature has not as yet been determined, but it is certain to be at least $10,000,000.
