Daily News (Newspaper) - June 9, 1969, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania PAGE 6 THE DAILY NEWS Monday June 9 l69 Editorially Speaking Defeat For Extremism The comefrombehind victory of Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty over his Negro challenger city councilman Thomas Bradley has been branded by some people as a defeat of reason by racism and demagoguery It may be that But it was also a defeat for for if race was the determining factor in the election it was not Yorty who beat Bradley but the memory of the Watts riot of 1965 freshly reinforced by the turmoil on the campus of San Francisco State University and a string of other schools It is true that Cleveland another city which experienced its own species of Watts disorders elected Carl B Stokes as mayor in 1967 However his white opponent Seth Taft did not stoop to racism in his campaign Also some whites may have hoped they were buying an insurance policy through Stokes against any further trouble from the black community But 1967 is ancient history The whole face of race rela tions in America has been transformed since then by the rise of raceproud groups like the Black Panthers the spectacle of guns in the hands of black students at Cornell University all the episodes of violence elsewhere All Yorty had to do to win reelection was warn that Los Angeles was one big campus that would be taken over by black militants and leftwing extremists if Bradley won It is often argued with a lot of history to back up the argument that minorities have never achieved a measure of justice without applying force against the dominant majority But this tactic if carried to the point where fear displaces aroused social concern on the part of the majority ultimately exacts a bitter price It was fear not simple bigotry that went to the polls in Los Angeles The wisest thing the black citizens of that city can do is to heed Bradleys words spoken in the depths of defeat Blacks have known disappointment before There will be another campaign another election They came close this close in view of the fact that Negroes are only 18 per cent of the population of Los Angeles The American system cannot be so rotten after all The system works though undoubtedly it ought to work better But it will never be made to work through fear or force Will the campus and black alike get the message Hitching Horoscopes One of the paradoxes of our times is the current upsurge of interest in he occult Business was never better for the casters of horoscopes and authors of books on astrology and prophecy What makes it even more paradoxical is that so many young people reared in an age of science are dabbling in astrology witchcraft spiritualism tarot cards the mysti cism of the East and the like Campus bookshelves are filled with books on sorcery and astrology reports the Rev Andrew M Greeiey a lecturer in sociology at the University of Chicago and director of the universitys National Opinion Research Center The Confucian system of I Ching to guide decisions is par ticularly popular at Catholic girlscolleges he says Half the dormitory rooms have horoscopes on their walls Greeiey attributes the new interest in part to a revolt against science which students say is failing to solve prob lems and in part to an effort to fill the void left by a turn ing away from conventional religion Some students also see in the occult a chance to control their own destinies even though they may only half believe that it works While the supernatural may be a novelty to the young fascination with il is as old as mankind Even today it exists beneath our thin veneer of scientific rationality One of the newest publications directed at this enduring interest is called Psychic In its inaugural issue the magazine reports that disaster warning systems have been set up in London and New York In London the Central Premonitions Bureau a working part of the London Evening Standard collects and analyzes premonitions of disasters The center was created largely as a result of an unusual number of prophetic dreams and premonitions preceding the October 1967 tragedy in Alber fan Wales where an avalanche of slag killed 116 children and adults So far the psychic warning system has collected over 600 premonitions most of them concerning air crashes earthquakes and political events Overall aim of the proj ect is to develop methods of assessing premonitions espe cially large numbers of corresponding ones in an effort to warn of coming disasters and prevent loss of life In New York the Central Premonitions Registry is look ing for premonitions involving national or world events known personalities and other nonpersonal precognitive experiences If youve had a bad dream lately about some public dis aster that hasnt happened yet

Pennsylvanias tax payers are going to pay an addi tional halfbilliondoHars re mains as elusive as it did six months ago As the battle continues over Governor Shafers controversial billion budgetary proposal with its builtin million tax increase it is worth noting that the struggle both pro and con on the issue has diminished little if any in intensity Unquestionably one of the more curious aspects of the great fiscal tiff revolves around the inescapable fact that amaz ingly the biggest fight by far against His Excellencys budge tary tome is being staged not by antiadministration legisla tive Democrats but by Mr Sha fers fellow Republicans in both the House of Representa tives and the Senate In both chambers GOP blocks have introduced their own pective programs to hold the line on role nominally falling to antiadministration stalwarts in this case of course legislative Democrats In fact it is almost unpreceden ted for proadministrationforces to vent their feeling in such in escapably strong terms as publi cly producing fiscal documents virtually in direct opposition to that of their theoretically aligned administration Usually such feelings on tie part of lawmakers are not vented in public rather they are confined to the inner mumble Crumble san ctum Meanwhile where are legis lative Democrats who by virtue By LUSTER L COLEMAV MU Alcohol and Conception In 1942

takinglarge amounts of t r a n quilizing drugs Is there any validity to this idea Mrs L H Maryland Dear Mrs H I have never seen any specific statis tics that relate birth abnor malities or behavior problems to the use of alcohol during conception That does not mean that the possibilitiy does not exist even though the chances are remote We have learned by sad ex perience that some drugs that appear to be innocuous may be toxic to some people The ca lamity that followed the use of thalidomide is evidence that strange things can happen with new drugs The genes and chromosomes are hardy but may be affected by the use and abuse of toxic drugs Alcohol must be classed as being toxic when taken over a long period of time in large quantities It is for this reason thai many physicians avoid the use of drugs during the very early weeks of pregnancy Whether or not there is even the va guest possibility that alcohol at the time of conception wax responsible for your childs present state is speculative That which is positive how ever is that irrespective of the cause your child should be studied by psychological test ing and if important clues are revealed she should be treated without delay A discussion with your own physician will then tell you if the specialized care of a psychologist or a psychiatrist is necessary Can eye problems be respon sible for lack of physical co

examination with highly spe cialized instruments must al ways be done in children who have learning disabilities and poor coordination For years complex eye disturbances and neurological abnormalities were overlooked because a child appeared to have good vision during daily activity Clumsiness and poor coordi nation with games memory defects difficulty in reading reversal of letters and poor

Phlladelphiar Mullen estimated that the cratic spending proposal would require somewhere between million and million in new of an absurd spread if there ever was one But while legislative Republi cans

substantial cuts are made in any of them there are only two alternatives CD A proportionate cutback in the service or 2 An ircrease in local taxes to mate up the difference Question to Hts Excellency Why would cutback in ser vice be necessary when at the very least the same level of funds would continue to be available Of course the cutback ac tually is based on the supposi tion the

Antoinette a Editor Dir of Adr belli Adv HIT Mameinc Editor Society Editor Edftor Circulation Mcr Ml Union Ed WASHINGTON NEA Judge Warren Burger has expressed some strong differ ences with how the US Supreme Court has operated in recent years Since it is virtually certain Burger will be confirmed as chief justice on that court the public should know just what these disagreements are and what they are not The evidence indicates that Burger believes the Supreme Court has been on firm ground in its basic and fundamental constitutional interpretations on the rights of men and women accused of crime The holdings of the Supreme Court on right to counsel on trial by jury instead of trial by press and on coerced confessions will always stand out as landmarks on basic rights The basic function of judges is to decide cases and resolve controversies In performing that function a court of last resort such as the Supreme Court must as we all know construe and interpret constitutions statutes rules contracts wills and trusts and in so doing It will frequently make law This is inherent in the evolution of common law Burger is not in agreement with those who have objected to the Supreme Courts making rules for police procedures in criminal cases He believes the court should be in that business In fact Burger assumes the correctness of the objec tives the court sought to reach in its controversial deci sions on police procedures for the interrogation of suspects including the conduct of lineups and eyewitnessidentifica tions and in the conduct of preliminary hearings I question says Burger not the court or the last decades holdings opinions of the court but its methodol ogy and the Supreme Courts almost undigni fied haste to clothe detailed rules of evidence and police station procedure in the garb of constitutional doctrine He believes that it has been unwise for the Supreme Court to revise something as complicated as the code of criminal procedure and evidence piecemeal on the narrow record of a few than by the orderly process of statutory rulemaking The evidence suggests Burger now believes the Supreme Court rulings on isolated complicated unusual cases when applied generally tend to unduly restrict police procedures by technicalities which can be interpreted quite differently by different judges Burger argues that rules must be used in a common sense way which meet the spirit of the both the rights of the accused and the practical problems of the police Burger insists the Supreme Court should take the lead ership in rewriting the rules of federal criminal procedure in an orderly systematic and comprehensive way But he believes that a variety of men with wide practical experi ence must be in on the that Congress too must have a say
