I nO NEWSPAPER Downtown The editorial in this ed by u.H.B., aroused a certain amount ol animated controversy. Three (at last count) downtown merchants cancelled their advertising in the Mail Tribune. G.H.B. was completely overwhelmed when, on Monday, a bouquet of purple roses was delivered to him in congratulations on the editorial. Various members of the staff heard the piece roundly damned and strongly acclaimed. The editorial itself, for those who missed it, offered certain criticisms of Medford's downtown merchants as a group (without, perhaps wrongly, pointing out that there are obvious exceptions), and then offering what was hoped were constructive suggestions. IT IS a fact that some downtown merchants, perhaps many, are in difficulty. These difficulties stem from many things (and among them is the fact that rents in the area, in some cases, are far too high to be justified). There are other reasons, however, and the same pattern is showing community throughout the nation. Sunday's editorial might also have pointed out that the merchants have, in some instances, done exactly what G.H.B. suggested in the way of parking space (Park & Shop has proven quite successful here), of store modernization, of aggressive merchandising, of training efficient and courteous staffs. But you can't tell the whole story in one editorial, and that piece was designed to make a point namely, that a combination of cooperation, self-help, and imagination among the merchants themselves can solve practically any problem they have. MOW the fact is that everyone in Jackson coun- ' ty has a stake m the welfare of downtown. The Mail Tribune, more than most, shares in this stake. And when we offer criticisms-it is because we are concerned, and hopeful that more-or-less detached suggestions will prove helpful in the long run, however hurtful they may be at the moment. We think that Medford is a splendid town, that it is in no immediate to blight and decadence, that it is going to grow and prosper. But there are definite signs, as Mayor Snider remarked, that it is in a period of transition. There are, no question about it, vacant stores. There are, no question about it, discomforting signs. "THE immediate question is whether the down- town merchants (and landlords) should seek help from the city itself, in the way of off-street parking, or relief from provisions of the fire code. The long-range question is what they are go-incr to do for themselves, for no citv is coiner to subsidize any considerable segment of its business community indefinitely. We see these encouraging signs : The tree program, which is now beginning to pay big dividends in attractiveness. the imaginative use awnings in two places, which makes shopping so much pleasanter. The forthcoming sidewalk sale, which, if it offers genuine bargains, will do much to restore confidence in the area. The spread, and use, of Park & Shop. Finally and perhaps most important of: all the fact that such violent reaction set in to! G.H.B.'s editorial, which means that people arel thinking; and if people think and then act, things get done. THE same ferment is T Mnl'tVl l?,i,l ( All 111 I'lJilll, CCl I II III lllU 1 1 I t. I V. llCtllto have gone to the city council and gotten them to abolish parking meters as several letters to the editor here have suggested. (The same has been done in the Hollywood district of east Portland; Roseburg is removing many meters, and Myrtle Point recently removed all on its streets.) Une and two hour parking zones will be sub stituted for the meters. ponce in the course of their regular duties, but no special meter officers will be employed. The merchants, themselves, will provide additional off-street parking areas. A committee has proposed merchants assess themselves $1 per employee per month for this. piIE Bend Bulletin comments: "The biggest argument In favor ot meters has not been revenue produced, but rather thai they keep downtown employees and merchants from hogging parking spots. "But policing these 'all-day' parkcis would not seem to be too difficult a task. "Bend has a reputation as a very hospitable town . . . But, with the rerouting of U.S. 97 on Third Street instead of the downtown area iMedford renders make It 'U.S. fill on the freeway viaduct' Instead of the downtown area), Bend must strengthen this reputation if it Is to continue to woo tourists at the present rate. "Removing of parking melers might be a strong step in that direction. Both city officials and Chamber directors should keep a close watch on the North Bend plan. "Parking meters are a necessary evil In large cities. But in the friendly, non-metropolitan communities, their value may be limited." This may or may not be an idea adaptable to Medford's situation. But this is by way of remarking that there is no one solution to the problems faced by the community of Medford's downtown. There are many, and each should be explored. Constructive criticism and suggestions, we like to believe, can be a help, rather than a hindrance, in finding them. E.A. in Ferment space last Sunday, sign up in community after clanger of succumbing ot permanent sidewalk taking place elsewhere. v.,m,,l fl, .l,nlo They will be patroled by "I Sure Miss COMMUNICATIONS Letters to the Editor must bear the name and address ot the writer, although under certain circumstances the use of a pen name or initial for publication is permissible.

The views expressed In the report are those which have been held by the Veterans Administration for many years. I sh.Ul continue to keep in close touch with this situation but in fairness and frankness, I cannot offer any real encouragement at this time. "Wayne Morse, United States Senate, Washington, D.C. -- Dear Senator Morse: This is in reply to your letter of July 23rd concerning the possibility of establishing a hospital at White City, Oregon. There is no new basis to support the establishment of a hospital as part of our White City facility. The lack of a medical college with which a hospital could affiliate is a major deterrent. Experience has prov en the value of locating our hospitals adjacent to medical schools. The combined waiting list for our hospitals at Portland and Vancouver averaged 105 for the past fiscal year; and 92 for the previous year. This is in line with our overall waiting list for medical and surgical beds throughout the system. All those on the waiting list are non-service connected cases. William S. Middlclon, M. D..

Questions Branchfield To the Editor: Reference your editorial of Aug. 26 "On Blight and Fright" which was most unbiased and to the point. In the above editorial ref erence was made to the appearance of Attorney Edward Branchfield before the City Council in behalf of the down town landlords in which he opposed the passage of the city s revised fire code and, in which he stated that the merchants and landlords could not afford to install sprinkler systems. I know of no such protest when the state fire marshal directed that all nursing homes in the city must make such installations before renewal of their licenses would be approved, yet the nursing homes were, and are, far less able financially to make such installations than the downtown landlords. However, they are still a part of the business interests of the city and operate under licenses issued by Uie city. From the above, it seems that Mr. Branchfield is far more interested in the downtown business than other business interests of the city. Now that he is running for the legislature, I wonder, if elected, he would follow this same line of class legislation and discrimination in legislative matters? A. J. Curry 806 West Main st. Medford Fro Enterprise To the Editor: When Thomas Jefferson said "the safety of the Republic lies In an educated citizenry," he evidently meant more than mere scholasticism. Both his own deeds and other things he said bear out this Idea. No system of enterprise will long survive if it does not serve the community as well as the individual. Free enterprise does not mean that one can do any thing that he may please to do without regard to the welfare of the community. This does not mean socialism, but it does mean interdependence. No man lives unto himself. Free enterprise does not belong to the selfish, the greedy, the unpatriotic, the robber. The activities of such will ultimately destroy the community or bring rebellion and tyranny. If Russia is ahead in achievements today we have no one to blame but American citizens who refuse to live up to the privileges of free enterprise. Strikes, lockouts and refusal to bargain fairly, coupled with inordinate greed for high profits have crippled our progress more than Russia's slave labor capabilities. Shorter work weeks, longer vacations and the closed shop are not part of the Russian system. These arc the fruits of free enterprise, but if unrestrained by good sense and good citizenship, these fruits will destroy the tree that produced them, kill the goose I that laid the golden eg If an employer holds a gun at the head of an employee and says, "sign or else," everyone would condemn such tactics. But if a labor union sets up a picket line before a factory door and says sign this contract or else, the govern- , ment sends a mediator to set- j tie the matter, usually in fav- or of the union. What makes one right and the other wrong? If the pictures of the full moon were emblazoned with dollar signs or bikini clad maidens lolling on Hawaiian type beaches, you could bet your bottom dollar that Amer- icans would be the first to (tet there. If any one suggested a slow down. Jimmy Hoffa and George Meany, with Walter Reuther in the background, would join hands to tar and feather the ingrate and toss him over the Berlin Wai.

THALER United Press International London-IUPD-The Kremlin apparently continues to maintain firm control over Communist action in Berlin while officially renouncing responsibility for the city. Whatever the tactical moves against the West, Moscow is keeping a solid grip on East German Communist Party boss Walter Ulbricht and his aides. The signs are that Premier Nikita Khrushchev does not want to give Ulbricht a free hand for action that could spark off a military clash with the West and erupt into World War III. May Go To Brink Khrushchev, the best available assessments say, may go to the brink, but he is afraid of a war which would destroy much of what Russia has achieved and possibly even communism Itself. The heightened tension in Berlin has all the markings of a major Communist probing operation into Allied strength. Provocations and trouble tormented at the wall and elsewhere seem to be part of a calculated strategy to de termine just how much the Strictly Personal By Sydney J. Harris c- Field Enterprises Inc. DEFINITION The continuing "disarmament talks" between the Soviet Union and the West in which both sides use the same words to mean much different thing s remind me of a story that's so old it is probably new by now. Once, a long time ago, professor visited Scotland to teach. As a rib, the students told him there was a noted sage in the city who was much smarter than the professor. He was so smart, in fact, that the professor didn't even have to talk to him sign language would suffice. Then the students hunted up an ignorant, one-eyed butcher, and told him the professor wanted to see him and find out if the butcher were really the most ignorant man in Scotland, by giving him a test in sign language. Highly insulted, the butcher angrily agreed to the meeting. When the professor met the man whom he thought was a distinguished savant, he immediately held up one finger; the butcher promptly held up two fingers. The professor held up three of his fingers; the butcher, his clenched fist. The professor displayed an orange; the butcher a dry crust of bread. The professor was delighted at the man's genius. "When I said there was one God," he exclaimed, "this man replied that there were Father and Son. When I declared faith in the Trinity, he as strongly asserted the Unity. When I said the earth is as round as an orange, he replied that bread was the staff of life." The butcher was equally delighted with tne encounter. "I showed up his insults," he chortled. "When he held up one finger, snenring that I had but one eye, I told him I could see moro clearly with one that ha could with two, "When the professor said we only have three eyes between us, I made a fist to warn him that if he kept on insulting me, I'd paste him in the jaw. When he held up his orange, implying that w couldn't grow such fruit in Scotland, I answered that we didn't care for that, so long as w have plenty of good rye bread." Today, instead of sign language, we and our antagonists are using words like "peace" and "freedom" and "disarmament" to signify totally disparate ideas. The dialog between East and West can be neither meaningful nor fruitful until we can agree on the concepts we are disagreeing about. The delicate and difficult art of definition has been lost in a sea of sloganeering. or propaganda talks or senatorial filibusters, what we need is a citizenry aroused and determined to roll up sleeves and get on with the job. The safety of the Republic still lies in a morally mature and educated citizenry. L. G Weaver 301 Haven st. Medford. Ore. Herri i Spanish West is prepared to take and whether it can be intimidated to withdraw. According t o dispatches from Moscow from Allied diplomats, the Kremlin has been devoting much time and thought in recent weeks to the Berlin situation and the overall German problem. Khrushchev i s believed under pressure from his East German allies, and he stands committed to a Berlin settlement, having put off his deadline repeatedly in the face of New York For Candidates Against GOP By RAYMOND LAHR United Press International Washington - IUPII - In their search for candidates this year. New York Democrats look as bewildered as the stranger hunting for the right subway train in the catacombs under Times Square. Obviously, such offbeat Republicans as Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and Sen. Jacob K. Javits are regarded as tough to beat. Obviously, the New York Democrats believe in the old proverb that you can't beat somebody with nobody. So a casual reading of the In the Day's News By FRANK This modern world note: An ultra-modern inn now under construction in the Loop district of Chicago will have a FRUSTRATION ROOM in which guests can work off their tensions by smashing lamps and ash trays "The remedy?" TtHAT raises this question: Is this TENS1UN Busi ness something new In the world? Of course not. People are just finding new ways to work off their tensions. There was a time, as oldsters will recall, when if you got all strung up and couldn't go to sleep you went out on the back porch and kicked the cat. rPHAT, at least, was consid--- prahlv less exDensive than going to Chicago and blowing yourself for a room in a fancy new inn in the Loop district and working off your tensions by smashing lamps and ash trays against the wall. RUT Sad to sav It's no longer possible to work off your tensions inexpensively by going out on the back porch and kicking the cat. Why not? There are no longer any back porches. THIS TENSION business is getting a lot of play. The Southern California Dental association held its annual convention recently at Los Angeles. Among the speakers was a Dr. Ralph H. Boos, a mouth specialist from Minneapolis. He told his confreres: "Modern Americans are GNASHING THEIR TEETH AWAY. They spend five to eight minutes at mealtime each day GRINDING their Governor Hopes For House Action On Power Plant Washington - fl'PD - Washington's Gov. Albert D. Rosel-lini expressed confi d e n c e Tuesday that the House would reverse itself and approve a plan for the construction of the world's largest atomic power plant at Hanford, Wash. Rossellini said he was opti mistic that the plan for local agencies to buy waste steam from the Atomic Energy com mission's new plutonium actor at Hanford would be approved through a change of votes bv Congressmen who opposed the plan earlier. Rosellini besan a round of visits with Congressmen to urge them r.ot to oppose the plan, which he said would not cost the ff ieral government a single cent. Pick Up Tab "Residents of the Northwest are prepared to pick up the tab on this investment," he said. j Under the plan, the Washington Public Power Supply System would build the power ! piant. i Rosellini said Oregon's Re-! publican Gov. Mark O. Hat-field had authorized the Wash-I ington governor to speak for ! him and had promised any I help he could give. The proposal was approved by the Senate and may reach the House floor again" sometime next week. Western determination to stand fast. A decision now seems to be ripe and current troubles are probably the prelude to new and more significant Kremlin moves. Left Door Open Significantly, Khrushchev so far has left the door open for further talks with the West, notably with President Kennedy, before taking the threatened ultimate step of concluding a peace treaty with the East German regime. Democrats New York papers suggests to the distant onlooker that the Democrats are feeling frustration. This was apparent even though Democratic- Mayor Robert F. Wagner Jr. was reelected last year by a plurality of 400,000 votes and President Kennedy carried the entire state in 1960 with a majority of almost 400,00. And Rockefeller was supposed to have been damaged by his divorce this year. Trial Ballons Trial balloons have been floated and boomlets launched for a variety of candidates, JENKINS food. Why? The food, of course, may be a bit tough. But most of the gnashing is due to TENSION. It's a modern phenomenon, this teeth grinding, due to the great increase in worries being experienced by modern man. "Jiggle your jaw. Open your mouth, then move your jaws without allowing your teeth to touch. Do it four times a day - the last time just after getting into bed. You'll find it calms you down." ? ? ? ? ? Nc OT bad. Still, I can't help think ing that going out on the back porch and kicking the cat was more satisfying. It's too bad the old ways are vanishing. Tuna Fishermen Seek Protection From Government Washington-diPD - A spokes man for California tuna fish ermen told Congress Tuesday that the government had fail ed to protect American fishermen from seizure and har assment on the high seas. August Felando, general manager of the American Tunaboat association, San Diego, told a house foreign affairs subcommittee that har assment of American tuna fishermen by Latin American countries had increased sharply in recent months. Felando said, as a result, his association was opposed to a Senate-passed bill to give the interior secretary authority to impose a quota on American fishermen in line with yellowfin tuna conservation measures recommended by the Inter-American tropical tuna commission. He said the association, which previously had supported the legislation, now would oppose it unless it were amended to place an embargo on the sale of fish in the United States by any country which interferes with U.S. fishing vessels on the high seas. Felando said the U.S. tuna-boat White Star was seized Aug. 3 and the vessel and its Try and Stop Me By BENNETT CERF "Jl 1ARTIANS, insists Mike Connolly, can get jealous, too.

C 1K3. by Bennett CerL 'Distributed br King Futures VMi,t'4 The Soviets have shown every sign that they are still anxious to maintain talking contacts with the U. S. In the past, Khrushchev has often built up tension to promote such talks and to put the West under pressure in tha hope of getting concessions. He may be using the same) technique presently, although he has been made aware by the Western Allies of the fact that they remain determined to stay in Berlin, no matter what comes. Looking most of them unknown outside New York, where the governorship is supposed to ba an incubator for presidential hopefuls. Both parties will hold their state nominating conventions in less than three weeks. The) Republicans will renominate Rockefeller and Javits. Rockefeller Is already busy campaigning like a candidate running scared. If he is not scared, he must be trying to make an impressive showing for the benefit of 1964 national convention delegates who will nominate a candidate for president. In his first try for electiva office four years ago, Rocke feller unhorsed then Gov. Averell Harrirnan by soma 470,000 votes. Other Republi cans have carried New York with larger majorities but 1958 was generally a black year for the Grand Old Party. The GOP had little to cheer about then, except Rockefeller's victory for liberal Republicanism in New York and Sen. Barry Goldwater's victory for conservative Republicanism in Arizona. Even Republicans who view Rockefeller's brand ot Republicanism with suspicion or distaste can be impressed by success. Javits, seeking a second term, was first elected to the Senate in 1956 by a margin of about 450,000 votes. But he was running on a ticket with Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was carrying the state by 1,600,000 votes. The Democrats must draw comfort from the belief or hope that the shine has worn off Rockefeller after four years, that the newly formed conservative party will drain away Republican votes. They can also hope to come up with candidates who will light some fires along the county fair circuit and will get soma effective help from Kennedy. 6,000 Babies Said n.r i l.. r ueiormeu oy urug London-IUPD-The Daily iMr-ror reported today figures show 6,000 deformed infants have been born throughout the world to women who took the tranquilizer Thalidomide.
