Independent, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1958, Pasadena, CaliforniaOpinion Page the Independent february 24, 1958, Page 8 we d like to know what s going on the american people Are getting mighty sick of of is. Spoon fed Little morsels of information about what is a Cine on in their government by Eva shission bureaucrats. Either they do not know the i i of Pihulic depends upon an informed electorate or they do not care. Time alter time Washington officials decide that the frail and a chess Public be i Ned by bad news or incapable of understanding or import of loud news. So out Coith a the stamp the information is with held. Some of this material applies to National de i i be but much of it applies equally to matters where there is absolutely no Security problem. Such exaggerated paternalism implies that the electorate of the United states is composed of such spineless Nincompoop they cannot be trusted truth. No one wishes or expects the government to broadcast legitimate secrets which might give Aid and Comfort to our enemies. But. Ii the govern ment expects us. The i Ople. To support prepared Ness measures with our Money and our votes it must give us the facts. If the government expects us to our Money to foreign economic or military Aid. We have a Richit to know Why this is so necessary. The hush hush Caither report is a prime example. Lunn after the fact that Russia has 500 submarines and is building 100 a year was published in this newspaper and presumably in every other in the United states a member of the Gaith or committee refused to make a statement on this phase of the investigation saying it is top top secret from whom the russians ought to know How Many submarines they have. Apparently our military people do too. So the information is secret from whom not even the american people who were the last to know. Washington s mania for secrecy has reached ludicrous Bounds. The Bonds of. Official secrecy extend to almost every department of government. They can be listed in the scores. As one instance there Are More than 1200 committee hearings in Congress yearly which Are closed to the Public. Ask your Congress Man Why. The chances Are he does t know. Fortunately there is at least one congressman who is taking this usurpation of Public rights seriously. He is rep. John Moss of California chair Man of a House committee which has Beon into the governmental secrecy problem. He recently introduced a Bill which seeks to break this paternalistic hold bureaucracy has upon the american people. One would think that it would be welcomed but the House government operations committee has voted to table the Bill for a while and every one of the 10 Cabinet level departments in Washington have opposed it. Things Are much better in California however. We have statutes now requiring Public bodies to hold Public meetings. We even have 66 Laws requiring state agencies to open their records to the Public. But Washington remains obdurate. Why what reason is there for the Only tem Bill to Grant All of us the rights we must have to remain free your rights Are being infringed. Before its too late you might ask your congressman Why he in t doing something about if. Inside Washington acc awaiting new chairman Robert s.

A Kadyk hiking trails for week Enders Leadabrand it May Only be a Lull Between the storms but the current Fine weather this time of the year brings out the hikers. Already the Foothills Are Green and attractive and the Young adventurers some of them who have never been in the mountains before Are interested in trails to climb in the search for High adventure. Here is a list of some of the Rllins on Back to Jit. Lowe More frequently used trails. Irom in most cases these trails will be in better condition than some of the less used routes. As Habi tues of this particular Corner Are quite aware it is the policy Here to keep up March of science during the International geophysical year. Scientists Are scraping Moss off rocks thousands of feet below the Ocean s surface and studying it. Others Are. Measuring the depth of icebergs under the Ocean s surface. Tea Are at the South pole seeing How they like the cold and. Incidentally bugging the eggs of penguins with Small transmitters. Scientists literally Are at All Corners of the Globe probing and smelling and reporting on this Anil that in an Effort to make this an extra special year in scientific achieve ment. Our own modest efforts have been directed at such simple things As sure fire ant killers liquid detergent and the study of Garden weeds. And now another discovery to help science keep tramping along to its glittering destiny Gin jello. Booze will jell. Confirming experiments were made the other night which will now change the out look of the thousands upon thousands who have previously scorned Gelatin deserts de spite their health giving Energy providing qualities. They had told me it could t be done. The Standard recipe on the Box of jello was used exception that Gin was substituted for water. A very cheap Gin was purchased for the Experiment. It was unfortunate that the Only jello available at Home was Raspberry or Orange. Lime would have been preferred. At any rate. Orange was selected and a Beautiful shimmering bowl of jello it was friends. And with a Wallop that May make the singing of Mother Machree the Whiffen poof song and Sweet Adeline closely associated eating of jello. I sampled it the following morning eating a heaping tablespoonful. It is not recommended before breakfast unless you Are accustomed to starting your Day with a wee nip and 1 am not. It was like tossing off a straight shot. And since the Combina Tion of Orange and Gin was not too palatable the entire Batch was tossed in garbage to be fed. Perhaps to some unsuspecting hog who will proceed to make a Lush of himself. It was feared that innocent children might dive into it on their return from school and go rostering through the neighbourhood swinging on tree limbs and peddling their bikes with unseemly abandon.

Music to the housewife s cars. A Sioui Ficat new study scientific on Dandruff has been submitted to this Bureau by Max Kogel inc. A Public relations firm in new York which is promoting Dandruff removers and repellents not Dan Druff As one might suppose. According to their Survey your chances of living bothered by Dandruff Are greater if you live in a Largo. Northern City Anil have a responsible Job in a Lon Sion producing business. Farmers have the least trouble. The poll was conducted in Barber shops Beauty salons Ami drugstores. In addition to really get to the people the firm put out an inquiring reporter who found that there was a 7-10-20 per cent increase above the 7i per cent Norm among City dwellers and men and women engaged in anxiety creating lines of work. New York and Chicago lend the nation. Hollywood is next. Eighty per cent of the people in Hollywood have Dandruff Accord ing to the Survey. Possibly the Ligure would be higher at Santa Anima. People really Are anxious at the track. But 1 suppose that Max Rogel inc., did t really Trust its in Quiring reporter enough to let him get into the hair of the horse players.
