z,Zero Hour Midnight
' One minute past midnight, the newest facility of the
U. S. Air Force (defense) will be placed in operation.
That facility in the Air Defense filter center, in Bend.
It will be activated at 0001 Thursday, an military men
reckon time, and as it goes into' operation a new area
of responsibility will appear on America's defense map,
The responsibility for the area will be that of the
..volunteer workers, all civilians, and the Air Force per
sonnel assigned to the new center.
" At "zero hour," one minute past midnight tonight, a
.large vertical plotting board will blaze with fluorescent
lights, and figures, letters and symbols written back
wards will appear on the transparent glass.
Possibly a plane will be charted on that section of
the world geographic grid that covers eastern Oregon
-.and Klickitat county in Washington.
The Air Defense center, with its network of tele
"phones reaching to 206 Ground Observer Corps stations,
will be in full operation.
About a year ago, the local Air Defense filter cen--2er
was little more than a dream. Half a dozen different
"iities east of the Cascades sought the center. Jiend's bid
appeared fruitless.
But, eventually, Bend was assigned the center, and
a building was especially constructed to serve its needs.
Incidentally, omu binding promises were made in Cen
' 'tral Oregon.
Never before. Air Force officials pointed out, had a
- city under 50,000 been assigned such a center. To provide
"volunteer workers larger cities were essential, it has
been held.
But it was promised that volunteers would be avail
1 able. The response in this area was outstanding and it
even exceeded the promises.
Not only is Bend the smallest city ever to host a fil
mier center, but the center installed here is the most up to
; date in the United States.
The vertical plotting board that is the central fea-
hire of the center is the only one of its kind.
Formal dedication of the new center will take place
'. on July 14. It is a most appropriate date: It will mark
'. the third anniversary of "Operation Skywatch" in Amer
"ica. For the large number of volunteers engaged in "Op
eration Skywatch" in this area and for those that will
man the new defense filter center, Thursday, July 14, will
-bo a great day.
Vet there will be a note of sadness
Not present for the ceremonies will be an Air Force
officer who played a major role in planning the Bend
center as the finest in all America.
He is the late Captain Herbert F. Frary. It is fitting
"that his work is lo be commemorated in a'brohze plaque
"that will be seen by all who visit the filler center.

: A Bear on Mt. Hood
A news item from Madras reports that two alpinists
in that city found tracks of a bear on the .snowy summit j
of Mt. Hood on a recent climb.
They had no guesses as to the motivation for the
J bruin's ascent of the 1 l,24!i-foot high peak, or why the'
animal peered over the snowy parapets at several points
on the summit.
But why guess? j
The tracks were made by the bear that went over
the mountain, to see what it could see.
The Orphaned McKemie
I.inn and I.ane, sister counties just west of the Cas
cade divide, are embroiled in a road controversy.
It concerns the proposed construction of the Clear
lake cutoff, a year-around connective link between the
South Sanliam and MrKcnzie highways.
I.inn, through its county court, is opposing plans for
construction. I.ane threatens that if I.inn does not agree
to share the road building und maintenance within a
reasonable length of time, the stretch will be started from
I.ane coijnty, with timber access roads then built from
the end of the I.ane work.
I.inn county protests the proposed construction be
realise :
Z 1. It would put I, inn county limber buyers at a dis-l
"advantage over those of I.ane county because of hauls:
over unfavorable grades.
2. Tourists would be drained from I. inn's South San
tiam highway.
.'!. Cost of up-keep and snow removal would strain
county road funds.
I. The road would encourage hydroelectric interests
to build the controversial Beaver marsh dam, ruining the
beauty and fishing value of Clear lake. ,
Deschutes county posibly will be inclined to remain
neutral in this controversy between I.inn and I.ane.
Plans for the const nu t ion of a modern highway via
Clear lake have been under consideration for a number
of years.
And in the meantime the Mi Kenzie pass route, a
summer road that makes accessible for tourists an area
of spectacular volcnnism unsurpassed on the continent,
is becoming a third grade highway a sort of orphan
promoted by no community.

U.S. Officers
Unhappy Over
Order on Girls
SEOUL, Korea (UP) Hundreds
of U.S. Army officers were un
hanov today over a three-star gen
eral's order to keep their Korean
girl friends out of Army clubs.
Thousands of enlisted men
feared they were next in line for
a similar ban.
The verbal order was handed
down in a staff meeting several
days ago by U. Gen. John H.
Collier, the Army's top command
er in Korea.
Collier told his officers they had
until the end of the month to stop
bringing their Korean girls into
Army clubs. In tact, ne discour
aged officers from being seen at
all with Korean girls.
The order by Collier who
slapped a similar ban on fraterniz
ation when he was U.S. command
er m Stuttgart. Germany was
not very popular.
However, when an Army spokes
man was asked about the ban, he
replied that "it is simply the gen
eral's wish to eliminate an unde
sirable situation."
Further, the spokesman said,
Collier "is just trying to have the
olficers set an example."
But Brig. Gen. Mercer Walter,
head of the U.S. Army's Korean
Civil Assistance Command, said his
olficers could continue to bring
their girls into KCAC clubs, where
business is booming along.
About the only officers in (avor
of Collier's ban were chaplains.
"It doesn't look good," one said,
to see our top officers married
men. even colonels going around
openly with these women."
"Collier is absolutely right, an
other chaplain said. "After all.
most of these women who come
to the clubs are just out-and-out
It was generally believed that
as soon as the ban takes tun
effect, Collier will tell his officers
to start enforcing the same re
striction on enlisted men.
The enlisted men cry so much
about the difference in privileges"
one major said, "that you couldn't
very well tell them first to stop
having girls."
