Editor’s Note: Yesterday was not so long ago . . . in terms of our history. Thanks to the Works Project Administration (WPA).
Within this program was the Federal Writer’s Project, where more than 300 writers from 24 states would gather almost 300 documents that featured parts of our history and the people that made that history. It makes for fascinating reading and lets us look in on the lifes of those who came before us and see what they endured. The documents produced not only kept writers busy and gave them a source of income, but preserved an important element of our history in the process.
Their documents, typically 2,000 to 15,000 words in length, varied from narratives to reports to case histories.
Here we take a look at Harlem, some of the folk tales and examples of racism in a Harlem Bar . . . then a long look at show biz . . . . some of the characters and their lifestyle, “back in the day.” Here, then, is another sampling of this wonderful project. For certain, we will have more published in The Paper in the future:
FOLKLORE NEW YORK WORKER Ralph Ellison DATE June 14th, 1938 Name of informant: Leo Gurley SUBJECT Harlem
I hope to God to kill me if this aint the truth. All you got to do is go down to Florence, South Carolina and ask most anybody you meet and they'll tell you its the truth.
Florence is one of these hard towns on colored folks. You have to stay out of the white folks way; all but Sweet. That the fellow I'm fixing to tell you about. His name was Sweet-the-monkey. I done forgot his real name, I caint remember it. But that was what everybody called him. He wasn't no big guy. He was just bad. My mother and grandmother used to say he was wicked. He was bad allright. He was one sucker who didn't give a dam bout the crackers. Fact is, they got so they stayed out of his way. I caint never remember hear tell of any them crackers bothering thatguy. He used to give em trouble all over the place and all they could do about it was to give the rest of us hell.

It was this way: Sweet could make hisself invisible. You don't believe it? Well here's how he done it. Sweet-the-monkey cut open a black cat and took out its heart. Climbed up a tree backwards and cursed God. After that he could do anything. The white folks would wake up in the morning and find their stuff gone. He cleaned out the stores. He cleaned up the houses. Hell, he even cleaned out the dam bank! He was the boldest black sonofabitch ever been down that way. And couldn't nobody do nothing to him. Because they couldn't never see im when he done it. He didn't need the money. Fact is, most of the time he broke into places he wouldn't take nothing. Lots a times he just did it to show 'em he could. Hell, he had everybody in that lil old town scaird as hell; black folks and white folks.
The white folks started trying to catch Sweet. Well, they didn't have no luck. Theyd catch 'im standing in front of the eating joints and put the handcuffs on im and take im down to the jail. You know what that sucker would do? The police would come up and say: “Come on Sweet” and he'd say “You all want me?” and they'd put the handcuffs on im and start leading im away. He'd go with em a little piece; Sho, just
like he was going. Then all of a sudden he would turn hisself invisible and dissapear. The police wouldn't have nothing but the handcuffs. They couldn't do a thing with that Sweet-the-monkey. Just before I come up this way they was all trying to trap im. They didn't have much luck. Once they found a place he'd looted with footprints leading away from it and they decided to try and trap im. This was bout sun up and they followed his footprints all that day. They followed them till sundown when he come partly visible. It was red and the sun was shining on the trees and they waited till they saw his shadow. That was the last of the Sweet-the-monkey. They never did find his body and right after that I come up here. That was bout five years ago. My brother was down there last year and they said they think Sweet done come back. But they caint be sho because he wont let hisself be seen. NAME OF WORKER Ralph Ellison DATE June 15, 1939 SUBJECT: Racism in a Harlem Bar

some beat-up change.
Wasnt such a crowd in the place that night, just a bunch a them beer-drinkers. I was looking down at em dancing and wishing that things would liven up. Then a man came up and give me four dollars just to sing one number. Well, I was singing for that man. I was really laying it Jack, just like Marian Anderson. What the hell you talking about; I'd sing all night after that cat done give me four bucks; thats almost a fin! But this is what brings you down. One a these bums come up to the stand and says to the banjo player: “If you monkeys dont play some music, Im gonna throw you outta de jernt.”
Man, I quit singing and looked at that sonofabitch. Then I got mad. I said: “Where the goddam hell you come from, you gonna throw somebody outa this band? How you get so bad? Why you poor Brooklyn motherfriger, I'll wreck this goddam place with you.”
Man, he looked at me. I said: “Dont look at me goddamit, I mean what I say!” By this time everybody is standing around listening. I said: “I

Then man, I make a break for my pocket, like I was pulling my gun. Ha, Ha, goddam! You oughta seen em fall back from this cat. This bum had on glasses and you oughta seen him holding up his hands and gitting out a my way. Then the boss came up rinning running and put the sonofabitch out into the street and told me to get back to work. Hell, I scaired the hell out of that bastard. A poor sonofabitch! Drinking beer and coming up talking to us like that! You see he thought cause we was black he could talk like he wanted to. In a night club and drinking beer! I fixed him. I bet he wont try that no more. Man, a poor white man is a bringdown. He aint got nothing. He cant get nothing. And he thinks cause hes white hes got to impress you cause you black. Then some of em comes up and try to be your friend. Like the other night; Im up on the stand drumming and singing, trying to make myself some change. I was worried. I got a big old boy, dam near big as me, and every time I look up hes got to have something. Well the other night I hadnt made a dam thing.

An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%.
The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, 'Your hearing is perfect.. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.'
The gentleman replied, 'Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!'
me and says: “You stink!”
Now you know that made me mad before I even knowed what he was talking about. A white cat coming up to me talking about I stink? I said: “What you talking about. What you mean I stink?
He said: “You aint a good follow like the other cats. You wont take me up to Harlem and show me around.”
I said: “Hell yes, mammydodger, I stink! If thats what you mean Im gon always stink. Youll never catch me carrying a bunch of you poor sonsabitches up there. What the hell you gonna do when you get up there? You aint got nothing. Hell, you poor as I am. I dont see you coming down to Harlem to carry me up to show me the Bronx. You dam right I stink.” Man, he just looks at me now and says: “Jack, you sho a funny cat.' Can you beat that? He oughta know I aint got no use for him. DAM! Another one comes up to me another one a these beer-drinking bums- and says: “I want to go up to your house sometime.”
I said: “Fo what! Now you tell me fo what!” I said: What-in-theworld do you want to come up to my place for? You aint got nothing and I sho aint got nothing. Whats a poor colored cat and a poor white cat gonna do together? You aint got nothing cause you too dumb to get it. And I aint got nothins cause I'm black. I guess you
Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: 'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?' Slim says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.' 'Really!? baby!?'
'Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.' ••••• An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. . . I would recommend it very highly.'
The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'
The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You
got your little ol skin, thats the reason? Im supposed to feel good cause you walk in my house and sit in my chairs? Hell, that skin aint no more good to you than mine is to me. You caint marry one a DuPonts daughters, and I know dam well I caint. So what the hell you gon do up to my place?”
Aw man, I have to get these white cats told. They think you supposed to feel good cause they friendly to you. Boy I dont fool with em. They just the reason why I caint get ahead now. They try to get all a mans money. Thats just the reason why I found me a place up the street here. Got two rooms in a private house witha private bath. These other cats go down to Ludwig Baumans and give him all their money so they can meet you on the street and say: “Oh you must come up to my apartment sometimes. Oh yes, yes, I have some lovely furniture. You just must come up sometime;” You know, man, they want to show off. But me I done got wise. Im getting my stuff outa junk shops, second hand stores, anywhere. I aint giving these Jews my money. Like the chicks. I used to get my check and go out with the boys and pick up some of these fine feathered chicks. You know the light chicks with the fine hair. Wed go out making all the gin mills, buying liquor. Id take em to a room and have a ball. Then Id wake up in the morning with all my beatup change gone and Id I'd have to face my wife and tell her some deep lie - that she didnt believe. I dont do that no more. Now I give
know ... the one that's red and has thorns.' 'Do you mean a rose?'
'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?' Rules
Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn’t need my help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.
'I don't know,' he said. 'She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.' ••••• Couple in their nineties are both having problems remem-
most of my money to my wife. And I put the rest on the numbers. And when I see the fine chicks I tell 'em they have to wait till the numbers jumps out.
See this bag? I got me a head a cabbage and two years a corn. Im going up here and get me a side a bacon. When I get home, gonna cook the cabbage and bacon, gonna make me some corn fritters and set back in my twenty-fivedollars-a-month room and eat my fritters and cabbage and tell the Jews to forgit it! Jack I'm just sitting back waiting, cause soon things is gonna narrow down to the fine point. Hitlers gonna reach in a few months and grab and then thingsll start. All the white folksll be killing off one another. And I hope they do a good job! Then there wont be nobody left but Sam. Then we'll be fighting it out amongst ourselves. That'll be a funky fight. Aw hell yes! When Negroes start running things I think I'll have to get off the earth before its too late.

During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember … Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks. 'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?' 'Sure..'
'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks. 'No, I can remember it.’
''Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?' He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.' 'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that,

ordinary. As you enter, to the left there is a long bar displaying such signs as “Our Private Stock Rye—Average Age 4 years, 25¢; Dawson Scotch, 25¢,” a listing of “quick orders” served at the bar; extra charge if served at tables. Seating capacity, including a mezzanine, is about 110. The color scheme is dubonnet and cream, carried out in dubonnet upholstered chairs, and a decorative wall mural, depicting scenes of old Greece; the chariot races, athletic meets, etc. Music all day long by an automatic playing piano. The sign outside says: Gus and Andy's serving the best to the best since 1912. And the menu bears the tale of it's growth on the cover. “The Evolution of An Apple”
Back in 1912, Anthony Pournaras, realizing that the founding of a successful enterprise depended upon the quality of his merchandise, set himself in business at our present location by selling apples.....only the best for the price. A very inauspicious start, to be sure, but the verity of his homely philosophy was to be vindicated.
From an apple to a fruit stand : from a fruit stand to a fruit and candy story: from that to a light Luncheonette and Delicatessen: and from that to a modern coffee shop and restaurant (1927). His progress and expansion was positive proof of his unshaken belief in quality. In 1930, when vaudeville, whose artists were our friends and customers, officially bowed to radio and talkies, and then exhaled its last breath, Anthony Pournaras died. Later a new era began for his old establishment.....a new show business..... a new deal.....and a new home for the apple, on October 21, 1934. After extensive alterations the present Bar and Restaurant made its debut.
With a seating capacity of 110 including the studio mezzanine, we endeavor to present in a comfortable and pleasing manner, our club luncheons, our full course dinners and our famous blue plate dinners. Our bar serves only the best liquors and caters to the most discriminating in the vicinity. Through all these years the type of our business has been changed to suit the times and demand, but the underlying principles and character of our establishment have remained the same. 25 years in business is our mark of success in serving good food.....as wholesome as the symbolic APPLE.

Nat Reynard: I was born on Second Avenue and Sixth Street and the only recreation we had would be gone 'ta dance halls. We went to seven dances a week and one matinee Saturday.
Naturally, we were all good ballroom dancers. So the first [venehur?] we had was a ball room
dancin' act with a goil from school and then I had a dancin' school with George [Deins?]. He had a dancin' act with his little goil I used to go around with. Later she wuz his foist wife. We usta go and give exhibitions for dancers for a cup.
be a little more quiet up there”.
[Doins?] would be the judge of tricks that's planted. By a previous arrangement, we'd say that after the sixth trick, we would start taking the customers. Say that it's the sixth trick. It has been finished. Now the seventh trick, which is already known to one on the stage is to be a watch.
You find out her name is Mrs. Jones, she lives a short ways out of town. So two weeks before your show plays there, an advance man goes out to see her. Gets her name and address, of course, from the theatre, and he always tries to get some woman who has a child going to school. About 11 o'clock in the morning he knocks on the door. He talks himself inside because he's demonstrating a new silver polish, and he wants to polish all her silver for her, loving cups and all, and it won't cost her a cent. What woman likes to polish silver! And anyway, he talks himself into her good graces 'cause he's a nice guy, making it still understood that he is not selling anything, having no sample kit or anything like that. He does a good job polishing everything in the house and gets up a pleasant conversation until the youngster comes home from school for dinner. Of course, the natural thing is, he's ast to sit down and have a cup of coffee too. He entertains the kid with some stories and gets himself foither into the graces and of course, there isn't anybody will tell you more about herself and her family than a mother.
The Magic Shows
As you're finishing your sixth trick, you toin casually to the row behind you and you say, “Let me have a watch, please”. Immediately three or four watches come out. In a glance, it doesn't take you long to pick out a standard make like a Hamilton, Ingersoll, etc. without the audience noticing that you favor one type. So you immediately look and experience tells you which is the watch to take. So without making it appear obvious, you pick out, say, the Hamilton watch, “What have I got in my hand?”
The word “what” means that you have a Hamilton. You've already told him at the end of the sixth trick, even before you asked the audience for a watch, that the trick coming up is to be a watch.
Now, if I said, “Here is something in my hand”, the word “here” means an Ingersoll. In all cases the first word is the give away. The next thing is to cue him on the time. For instance, he's come on the stage at ten o'clock. This stunt takes place between 10:05 and 10:10, so now you got to cue him on 7,8, or go 9. “Dan you tell me the time”, “What is the time”, “Will you tell me the time”. The foist woid again is the cue, and after he tells you the time you make one reply, and your reply is the answer to the next trick.
You have already whispered to the people behind you, “Let me have a bill”. So, without making it too obvious you pick out a fiver but don't take it yet. You say to the magician as he is giving you the correct time, while you are holding the watch in your hand, “That is correct”, or “You are correct” or “That is right”. Anything with three words, that is the answer to the next trick which you haven't done yet. Then you say, “The gentleman has handed as a bill”, meanwhile taking the fiver, “What is the denomination of the bill?” By the three words in the previous question, you have told him it's a five dollar bill. You immediately reach over and say, “What kind of a tie is this man wearing?” He says, “a polka dot”. You are not going to ask the tie question until you reach a polka dot tie, “What lodge does this man belong to?” “The Elks”. You are not going to ask that question until you come to an Elk pin. We used to rehearse every morning for an hour or two and go over the things we would have to do. If there's any difficulty between the feller on the floor and the person on the stage and they miss a cue, you can always toin around to the Balcony and say. “Will you please
Then you start over again.
Here's a real stunt. You go into a town where subscription seats are sold weekly and you find out the name of some woman who comes to see the foist performance every week.
Having got all the information you want out of her, you take your leave, telling her that if she ever wants to buy silver polish, be sure to ast for this coitin brand, but she couldn't find it in the 48 states if she went looking for it. The stuff is all written down and filed away. Two weeks later the magician comes to town. The same woman is sitting in row B-1. The polish man is concealed somewhere in the theater and identifies her to the cue man. And at some time during the performance you got to woik on her. He tells her all about herself and she never gives a thought that she told all this to a silver polish demonstrator two weeks previous. She immediately tells everybody what a great mind reader there is in town, and, before the end of the week, they pack in. After that foist performance the rest of the audience selected are plants. It was easy to do this in the old days because 90% of your house was sold by subscription to people that went religiously to the theatre, and they had the same seat.
Here's and old plant. A fellow goes into a theatre and puts down a tenner for his tickets. The cashier gives him a five, the number of which has been copied by the magician, and the rest in singles. The usher is tipped off to seat this guy and reports back the seat number. Having no time to spend the bill between the box office and the theatre itself, he still has it on his person. You know the seat he's in so you woik up to him, toin to his row and say

write it down?' she asks.
Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!' Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.. She stares at the plate for a moment. 'Where's my toast?' ••••• A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy: 'So I hear you're getting married?' 'Yep!'
'Do I know her?' 'Nope!'
'This woman, is she good looking?' 'Not really.'
'Is she a good cook?'
'Naw, she can't cook too well.'
'Does she have lots of money?' ‘Nope! Poor mouse.'
'Well, then, is she good in bed?' 'I don't know.'
'Why in the world do you want to marry her then?' 'Because she can still drive!' ••••• Three old guys are out walking.
First one says, 'Windy, isn't it?' Second one says, 'No, it's Thursday!'
Third one says, 'So am I. Let's go get a beer..' ••••• A man was telling his neighbor, 'I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it's state of the art.. It's perfect.' 'Really,' answered the neighbor . 'What kind is it?'

The Paper • Page 4 • August 20, 2015 Solar Energy Attractive to City Governments
More and more cities are turning to solar energy to cut costs on energy bills. The city of Oceanside, for example, expects to save millions of dollars in addition to gaining 20 shaded parking spots, all as a result of a recently approved project to install solar panels at five city facilities which will include the city’s police headquarters and a fire station. Under a recent agreement the city signed a power purchase agreement with PFMG Solar LLC, a Huntington Beachbased firm that will install and maintain the solar panels in exchange for the city buying the energy they produce.
The city estimates it will see a savings of $8 million over the live of the 25-year contract.
The panels will be installed — at no cost to the city — at Oceanside’s police headquarters, Fire Station 7, the city operations center, Melba Bishop Recreation Center and El Corazon Senior Center. The agreement locks in Oceansides’ energy cost at $0.16 per kwh versus the 23 cents per kwh they are presently paying SDG&E and when SDG&E increases its rates, the city will remain at
the fixed rate of 16 cents per kwh. Movement Expected on Proposed Property Development
The city of Escondido may opt to update and expand the city’s Sphere of Influence - a document that identifies land outside the city limits that Escondido might eventually want to annex. The issue arises as part of the process of responding to the plans and proposal of a developer who hopes to build 550 luxury homes in a project that is drawing more and more neighborhood opposition.
The proposed Safari Highlands Ranch development, if approved, would be built on 350 acres of a 1,098-acre parcel in the rugged hills of the San Pasqual Valley. The land is in an unincorporated section of the county, north of the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park and just east of the Escondido community of Rancho Vistamonte and the Eagle Crest golf course. Outside the city limits of Escondido, but under the Sphere of Influence document, land that would be annexed if the city so chose. The developer, Concordia Communities LLC wants the site annexed by Escondido so
mainly because of the propensity for officers and/or directors to make long winded speeches.
For the most part, this convention was much better. It was a convention for Kiwanians from Calilfornia, Nevada and Hawaii. I got a lot of useful information from a number of workshops, very skillfully presented by excellent speakers with lots of easy to understand audio/visual aids.
Man About Town
Sacramento, it turns out, is one of my favorite towns.
Yes, I know it gets hot there . . but so does Escondido . . .and temperatures in the two cities are not all that dissimilar.
In fact, upon returning home last Sunday, it was hotter in Escondido than it was when we left Sacramento.
Sacramento is a beautiful city, warm, friendly people, neat, clean, lovely suburbs as well as a beautiful downtown area. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency, just a block away from the state capitol building.
As regular readers know, I’m not a big fan of conventions -
Tim Cunning, a big high mucky-muck in Kiwanis circles, and who lives in Escondido, may have set a world record, or at least a Kiwanis record for the shortest seconding speech in history. His seconding speech lasted about 12 seconds.
The moment he finished the speech the auditorium fell silent . . . and then erupted in applause, cheers, and laughter. The man hit a home run.
He understood clearly that conventioneers appreciate concise, factual information, and abhor long winded oratory. Tim delivered.
But, then, he usually does.
He’s one of the top leaders in Kiwanis circles because of his dedication to Kiwans, to the
that essential municipal services such as water, sewer, fire and police protection would extend to the housing project.
Annexation would also allow the developer to skirt county zoning restrictions, which would allow only 27 homes on the land. Critics say those zoning laws prove the project is incompatible with the quiet community where it would be built and that the traffic and noise it would bring would destroy the picturesque neighborhood. Escondido’s current City Council seems inclined to favor upscale new housing, hoping it might attract new, high paying businesses and their staffs.
In order to arrive at that point, the city first has to expand the Sphere of Influence to include the site. If and when that occurs, the other natural processes of government begins, including environmental review. The county’s Local Agency Formation Commission, which oversees spheres and annexations, has told the city Safari Highlands is such a big development that a sphere update — rather just a simple amend-

service of youth, which is the primary mission of Kiwanis. Tim is a tireless worker for kids and Kiwanis. And he managed to steal the show at the Sacramento Kiwanis Convention.
(Let that be a hint to any of you who plan on attending and speaking at a convention. Keep it short, bub.) ••••• Remember when it used to be fun, glamorous and adventurous to fly? Doesn’t happen much anymore.
Oh, once your plane leaves the ground and climbs into the sky, when you feel that surge of the engines combining to climb you higher and higher, and as you watch the ground slip away from you . . . and when you level off and settle in for a nice, comfortable ride, with blue skies outside . . . and those delicious Southwest peanuts and pretzels to keep you fed . . . then it’s not only not so bad but rather an enjoyable experience. But the price you pay! Both financial and personal. The delays at check-in, going through security, are a royal pain in a sensitive area of the body. The prices you pay for food and drink make you realize that highway robbery still exists, it just relocated itself to vendors inside airports.
Letters to the Editor
More Credible Reasons to Oppose Lilac Hills Ranch –
There are many project opponents who don’t understand, or are offended by County of San Diego Planning Staff’s ‘handling’ on this project, which has obvious regional significance. Many opponents have credible land use concerns that this GPA will establish intensive development patterns as an undesirable precedent. If the GPA for this Lilac Hills Ranch is approved for 1,746 units with a density increase of 600%, approval action on Lilac Hills Ranch by Planning Commission, and Board of Supervisors, this would establish a regional land use precedent.

Still, it is sometimes a necessary evil to grab a plane somewhere and hope . . just hope that everything goes smoothly and your delays are not too lengthy.
Our flight home from Sacramento was one of the more pleasant recent airline experiences. Excellent staff on board, clear skies, smooth ride, and before we knew it . . . we were home! Nice to visit Sacramento, a beautiful city, but oh, how nice it is to be back home and to be welcomed so enthusiastically by our two daughters. (Oh, you might call them puppies, but you’d be wrong. Indeed, they are our daughters . . . Trixie and Cindy. A neighbor stopped by and saw to it they were fed and watered . . . but they still missed their mommy and daddy. And we missed them, the rascals. They’ve been hanging around all day, begging to be petted and loved . . . not realizing that we have a paper to get ready to go to press.
Speaking of which, remember earlier when I spoke of the costs of flying? We changed our flight to leave about five hours earlier than originally

A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.
A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, 'You're really doing great, aren't you?'

“Let me have a fiver, please?” If this guy takes one out you can be sure it's the marked one, because if he had another one in his pocket he wouldn't have changed a ten, and you find that this always woiks. You take the bill out to his hand and glance at the number and you see it's the right one. You're still on the last trick so that if something slips up and it isn't the one he got from the cashier, you can cue the magician when you answer the trick he's finishing up. Here's another trick that astonished a group of professors who tried to figure it out. We're sitting in the office one day, the magician, myself and two professors, one of the professors with his leg up on the desk. So the magician led into a card trick. And the card trick led up to four aces. When we all got through the ace of hearts was missing. He turned to one of the professors. “You got a knife?” The feller takes a knife out of his pocket. “Now, rip the sole of your friend's shoe open”. He thought it was a gag but he did it and there was the missing ace. They tried to figure out this trick for years but nobody ever could. Here's what happened.
This magician was in a shoe store getting a shine a few weeks before and he sees this professor's house man bring in the boss's shoes. So

Most opponents view this project as delivering the exact type of urban sprawl pattern of leapfrog development that is not consistent with San Diego County’s General Plan Land Use Element, which explicitly discourages such leapfrog growth patterns.
The analysis of Lilac Hills Ranch by County of SD Planning Staff has so far been neither objective, accurate, or reflect full disclosure of project related impacts from Lilac Hills Ranch. Instead, the applicant, Accretive, has somehow ‘been allowed’ to merely substitute their own analysis, with a promotional DVD version that projects a false, and artificially minor perception of actual project related impacts, and a grossly incomplete Land Use Analysis that only partially addresses primary issue of general plan consistency and land use. The limited analysis contained in Staff Report prepared for Planning Commissioners for this project fails to fully apply County of San Diego General Plan authority to limit growth patterns in a way that would avoid this type of urban

Even small accounts should be changed to the Trust. Once a small account became a large account when the proceeds of the house sale were wired, resulting in a large annoying probate. Marilyn Shea, Estate Planning Attorney Problem With Unfunded Trust
Dear Marilyn, My mother died recently and although she had a trust she never “funded” it. What does this mean? Mr. B from Shadowridge Dear Mr. B,
Unfortunately, an unfunded Trust has little or no value in California. When a person creates a Trust, a new deed should be done for their home and other property that one owns. Next is to notify your financial institutions which is often done improperly as different
Retirement plans such as IRA’s, Keoghs and Corporate Pension Plans are treated quite differently. The Trust (or the brand new IRA Trust) is only made the contingent beneficiary so that the surviving spouse (or heirs) can minimize taxable income on distributions.
Competent Estate Planning Attorneys will guide you through the process, helping you doing a Trust and funding it. This should not be a “do-ityourself” project. You need to deal with a professional expert who keeps advised of any changes in the law. copyright 2015

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
One of America’s Worst Presidents
Warren Gamaliel Harding was the 29thPresident of the United States, serving from March 4, 1921, until his death on Aug. 2, 1923.
Although Harding died one of the most popular presidents in history to that point, the subsequent exposure of scandals that took place during his tenure -- such as the infamous Teapot Dome scandal -- eroded his popularity. In historical rankings of the U.S. presidents, Harding has been rated among the worst.
Historians generally agree that if Harding was guilty of anything it

was poor judgment of character and choice of appointments. He famously took care of his friends, but many of them were either unqualified for their positions or took illegal advantage of their office. Harding was born in Blooming Grove, Ohio, Nov. 2, 1865. Except when political service took him elsewhere, he lived in rural Ohio all of his life. When not yet 20 years of age, he settled in Marion and bought the failing The Marion Star newspaper, building it into a successful publication. In 1899, he was elected to the Ohio State Senate, and after four years in office successfully ran for lieutenant governor. He was defeated for governor in 1910, but four years later Harding was elected to the U.S. Senate. In 1920, when Harding ran for the Republican nomination for president, he was considered an “also-ran” with little chance of success. The leading candidates could not gain a majority in order to secure the GOP nomination, leaving the convention deadlocked. Harding's support gradually grew until he was nominated on the 10th ballot. Harding conducted a “front porch campaign” from his home in Marion, allowing supporters to come to him. Running on a theme of “return to

after the guy leaves, the magician gets the shoe maker to put an ace of hearts in before he soles the shoes. In his pocket he carries around an identical deck, including an ace of hearts. He waits until he is with the professor and he's wearing those shoes, and then he woiks up to the card trick. He knew that if he waited long enough he could use that trick, and that's way he publicized himself. Always figgering ahead and leaving plants for the proper time. I might as well tell you that the man I woiked for and who all the stories are about is Houdini, the whitest guy that ever lived—and one of the cleverest, too. Because I woiked for him and helped him in his act, of course, I got to know all the goings on about his tricks.
There is a fortune in the stuff I know, but my code of honor is too strong for me to give it out. In fact, maybe you better not mention his name at all, just say when I woiked for a famous magician, 'cause his brother is now troupin' and I wouldn't want to hoit him any.
There's one thing you oughta know about Houdini. He always insisted that everything he did could be explained. There was nothing to all this psychic phenoneman, or vibrations. Oh, some people have another sense. Houdini thought that, too, but all of his stuff was easy to explain if you knew how. Before he did a trick he used to say all this but nobody believed him, He has a great contempt for professors, and all the educated scientists. The reason for this was that after he demonstrated a trick in front of such an audience, they would retire to their laboratories and make up charts, pages long, trying to figure it all out scientifically. Then they would show him all the figures and he used to call them damn fools, because it was so easy and they couldn't figure it out.
I was with him when he died. Did you know how that happened? We were at the McGill University, in Canada and he was demonstrating before a large group of professors and students. One of the things he used most in his famous burying and escape acts was breath control. He was showing them the one where he stand on the stage and someone from the audience comes up and punches him as hard as he can right near the stomach, on the appendix. Sometimes he had the student use a very large wooden hammer. And many doctors couldn't understand how he could live though this. Well the trick was in the way he prepared himself for the blow. He had a way of flexing himself, without it being obvious to the audience, so he couldn't fell the blow. On this night he called up a student and told him where to hit him when he gave the signal. Someone was talking in the wings and in that minute when Houdini toined around to see what it was about, relaxing himself at the same time, the kid swung at him and his appendix bust. Imaging that! If the kid had hit him a minute sooner, or if Houdini had-
n't relaxed himself, everything would have been allright. But he died. That's ironical, isn't it?
Maybe you were too young, but do you remember his famous burying himself alive trick? He used to have himself buried under sand, or in a glass coffin in a tank of water, and when they would pull him up 35 minutes later he was alive. He did that by breath control. I remember there was a guy and they advertised that on a coitin night this guy would have himself lowered in a glass coffin in full view of an audience, up at the St. [Nicholas?] Rink.
Houdini was out of town at the time and he sent me a wire to go up and see this act. And I did. And I saw the fellow put in this glass coffin, lowered into the water, and when they brought him up 35 minutes later he was alive. I wired Houdini about the trick and he ast me to hire this guy for him, which I did. Houdini came back and then he included this in his own act. You see, there's a coitin amount of oxygen in that coffin. If you have breath control and breathe very slowly and calm all the time, there will be enough oxygen there for 35 minutes. But say you're excited and yo start gaspin' for breath, why then the oxygen is used up in a coupla minutes. That's all there was to it. But it takes a man of iron nerves and a tremendous amount of control to be able to do it. ••••• How's it by me? Say, a lot's happened since I saw you last. Sure. I got a pink slip, and I got back on again. No kiddin'. I just called up Edward and told him how important I was and he put as back. This is everybody's struggle. You figure it out. Did I ever tell you how I foist got on? So I finally wind up bein' a bum an the Bowery—don't quote me on this. I was walking along the street, broke, and I met the head of one of the projects and I ast him for a job. He took me upstairs and I went to woik immediately. “Now”, he said, “before you got paid you got to get on relief”. And then he explained that I could go to work, sign the time sheet even without a work number. I ast him how I could got on relief, so he threw up his hands and said, “everybody for themselves”. Now, I was living, at that time, in a hotel. Not the Ritz or the Plaza. But a hotel. So I went to the relief office in the district and after waiting twelve hours to see somebody in authority, I finally did. My application was toined down immediately because there was no relief given to anybody who lived in a hotel. Understand, my hotel bill had not been paid for three weeks and I was gonna to be put out. I ast him what requirements they were and he said, “that you had to live in a foinished room, pay no wore than $2.50 a week and do your own cookin'”. I called his attention to the fact that it was against the law to cook in a foinished room, but that was out of his department. Inasmuch as I had a job and I wanted to keep it, it was up to me to get on relief. So I ast a woman who was on relief whar she thought I ought to do to cut the red tape. She said. “Go down to the Bowery, tell them that you're broke, which you are, and make them give you some kind of

relief. And no matter what that is, that's classified as relief; it would entitle you to a relief job.”
So immediately, it was on a Saturday morning, I went down to Lafayette Street and the man in charge told me to come back Monday. I stood there and hollered as loud as I could. “I slept in the subway the night before, I had nothing to eat for 36 hours, and I got not place to sleep tonight”. So he gave me a ticket to sleep in the lodging house, which I immediately put in my pocket and forgot, because I could bunk with someone over the week end. Of course he told me to come back to see him Monday morning. I forgot about the ticket and went to sleep with a friend. Monday morning when I went back to him, he saw my ticket wasn't punched, that I didn't sleep down in the lodging house. I had to think fast, so I told him I had gone out to Newark to work in a theatre and had slept there over the week end. He told me that I had to use the ticket, and he gave me a new one. This ticket called for a [delocks?] lodging house on Eighth Avenue. And I had to use it. This I took back to the job I was woikin' and they filled out the necessary papers, requestin' my transfer from relief to the woik project. These papers were filled out and sent over to the proper man to be signed so they could start on the way. Unfortunately, ten minutes before the papers were on his desk, he was fired, and he wasn't

Ready for Smart Growth?
Smart Growth features are included in every General Plan established by local government agencies. A General Plan serves as the blue print for future growth. In an older City, like Escondido, there are visible remnants of projects built before zoning laws and general plan standards. Newer Cities, like San Marcos, have grown with the benefit of well thought out master planned projects and quality of life features.
seems that most new development projects become embroiled in controversy. A General Plan inevitably fails to capture the micro interests of residents directly impacted. Some advice – participate in planning efforts, now and in the future. Locate your neighborhood on the General Plan and see what potential land uses are approved for nearby areas.
City planning standards have evolved. Urban sprawl is frowned upon for its high cost of infrastructure maintenance and environmental damage caused to undeveloped land. The concept of Smart Growth is widely accepted as the way to accommodate regional growth by increasing housing density within City boundaries to make greater use of existing infrastructure and If you live in Escondido, you can review the transportation options – near voter approved General Plan on-line at: employment hubs.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 Church San Marcos Things I Would Do Differently
Thinking back in life, there are a lot of lessons I’ve learned through “experience”. My wife and I were talking about some of the things we could have done differently and the impact it would have had on our lives. Here are a few of my random thoughts. (I could write a book on what experience has taught me). 1. I would make sure there were people in my life that motivated me to reach higher and grow deeper. In isolation, I often struggled alone when I needed those in my life who inspired and
challenged. Iron sharpens iron and I thank God for those in my life who challenge me. They are not all “yes” people. 2. I would read much more than I have. Hours spent watching television have yielded little. A few choice volumes I’ve returned to have nurtured my soul. I also would add to that the music that has touched me. They have changed me. The scriptures are at the top of that list. 3. I would have written down my goals. I have many dreams that have not been realized, but some that have were ones I wrote down. To do that, I needed reflective time. I hope to do more of that 4. I’d invited others to offer me more feedback. Call me insecure, but many times I didn’t want to know what others thought – out of fear of what I might hear. These days I love such conversations and those I value most are those that are vulnerable enough to give (and sometimes receive) honest evaluation. I would be stronger today if I’d been more open. 5. I would pursue my passions with more passion. I think 20% of my time has been spent doing what I’m best at and gifted in. I plan on spending the next few years doing what produces the most fruit. What are some things you would do differently?

"Well Archie," Barack replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?"
"Right now," said Archie, after a moments calculation, "there is myself, my cousin Harold, my next-door-neighbor Randy, and the whole dart team from Hooters. That makes eight!" Barack paused. "I must tell you Archie that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command." "Wow," said Archie. "I'll have to call ya back!"

"Well sir, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Harry’s
President Obama sighed. "I must tell you Archie, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also I've increased my army to one and a half million since we last spoke."

All during this time I had to sleep in the lodging house, sign out every morning, check in every night, and no chance of sneaking off any other place. I explained to the feller in the lodging house, however, what it was all about, and he gave me a little extra privileges. He allowed me to sleep in a dormitory where there was only 60 men instead of 100, and I didn't have to get up at six o'clock to get out. 'Cause in those places the bell rings at six and you better get out and look for a job. And don't you think I slept for one minute.

normalcy,” Harding was victorious over Democrat James M. Cox and Socialist Party candidate Eugene Debs. Harding became the first sitting U.S. senator to be elected president.
Harding preferred a low-key inauguration without the customary parade celebration. He was sworn in as President on March 4, 1921, in the presence of his wife and father. There was a brief reception at the White House where he gave a short inaugural address.
"Our most dangerous tendency is to expect too much from the government and at the same time do too little for it," he said.
Harding appointed a number of well-regarded figures to his cabinet, including Andrew Mellon as Treasury Secretary; Herbert Hoover as Secretary of Commerce; and Charles Hughes as Secretary of State. A major foreign policy achievement came with the Washington Naval Conference of 1921–1922, in which the world's major naval powers agreed on a naval limitations program that lasted for 10 years. But Harding’s success was overshadowed by two of his cabinet, Interior SecretaryAlbert Fall and Attorney General Harry Daugherty, who were implicated
3. When your ISP (Internet Service Provider) tells you the reason you can’t connect to the Internet is your problem not theirs, they may be right, but often they aren’t. Bring your PC in to our shop. It takes about five minutes to determine whether it’s their problem or yours.
4. These days the customer service “help” desks for ISP, Telephone and PC companies are no longer staffed with their own employees. Cox, Time Warner, Dell, HP, AT&T and others routinely employ third party foreign contractors located in “low rent” countries to man their customer service operations. This can be a problem when the “mother company” fails to provide adequate oversight. These contractors have been known to transfer customers to “Windows” technicians in order to “fix” PC problems. The customer thinks he is being referred by his/her trusted provider (AT&T, HP, Cox etc) to a real Microsoft technician and allows the “Windows” technician access to the PC. In reality it is a scam to extort money from the unsuspecting customer after disabling their PC. Don’t fall for it. 5. When seeking help from one of the above service or product providers either by phone or on line, take care to make sure you are actually contacting the real provider. Scammers make it very easy to contact them instead of who you want. Never use conin corruption.
The two Harding cabinet appointees who darkened the reputation of his administration for their involvement in scandal were Harding's Senate friend, Albert B. Fall of New Mexico, the Interior Secretary, and Daugherty, who became Attorney General. Fall was a Western rancher and former miner, and was pro-development. He was opposed by conservationists such as Gifford Pinchot, who wrote, "it would have been possible to pick a worse man for Secretary of the Interior, but not altogether easy.” Harding appointed a number of friends and acquaintances to federal positions and served competently, while some of Harding’s friends, who were dubbed the "Ohio Gang," proved corrupt.
Most of the scandals that marred the reputation of Harding's administration did not emerge until after his death. The most memorable of the scandals involved the U.S. Naval oil reserves at Tea Pot Dome in Wyoming. Teapot Dome was one of three reserves set aside for the use by the Navy in a national emergency. There was a longstanding argument that those reserves should be developed. Harding signed an executive order transferring the reserves from the Navy Department to the

read to him in court. Then he was given his choice of facing a jury trial, at 50¢ a juror and $2.00 for the defending attorneys, or immediately throwing himself on the mercy of the court, and believe me there was no mercy. They had all sorts of rules in connection with the conduct of the court. Like, for not removing his hat he was fined 50¢, talking to the judge, 50¢, sneaking a drink, $2.00. Sometimes the judge would stop the court, duck down under his desk and take a sip, put his hands in his pockets and pay his fine right away. And a great source of revenue was our Bailif, Fields, who had to have a nip every few minutes to refresh his memory, but he had a special wholesale rate of a buck a drink. All this money went to pay for the feed, the finest you ever saw. Just fit for kings. The finest smokes from Owls to Corona Coronas. And one man was the sponsor for the dinner. For instance, Granville made magnificent spaghetti and he would go into the kitchen and take care of the feed. On other nights, Williams, who was an epioure of the highest sort, would take charge of the kitchen. Now, when the guilty man came before the court, all the officers would hold an open conference, treating the man like he was already convicted. They would rattle off the maximum and minimum for the charge and work it up so that the guilty person would be forced to interrupt and put them straight on certain facts and when he did this, of course he was fined. And
water, things like that, so in view of that, I got, what you call an “in” with the guys there.
In that show we had the grandest bunch of two fisted troupers in one room. We opened the season here in the New Amsterdam Theatre, and they conducted the Follies Midnight Court every Thursday night after the show, at some tavern. The procedure was, they had regular subpenas made out, a little risque, and they were made and drawn up in the names of certain outstanding sports who could take a ribbing. They would find out from the feller's closest pal about some little touchy subject, something they could blackmail him on, something not so kosher. Maybe it would be something he had bragged out. Then they would bring charges and sometimes in the court they substituted phony names in the questioning, but they did it so that everybody could recognize who was the guy behind the false name and everybody was wise to his identity. Three or four of us were deputies; Bernard Granville was Judge; Bert Williams was Chief Magistrate; Will Rogers was the Attorney for the Defense; W.C. Fields was Bailif; and Don Barclay and Sam Hardy were the Prosecuting Attorneys. And, Believe Me, those guys were merciless. When anybody got in their clutches he had to know how to take it. The procedure went like this. They would send out the deputies to bring in the guilty man and then the charge was

his own attorney would join in, building up the case against his client. And the jury would take up the cue at once. Well, I'm Telling You, it was the funniest stuff you ever wanted to witness. In the middle of it all, Fields would start juggling and doing his Honest John act to convince the jury of his integrity. And Rogers would ring in something homey. And you know the kind of stuff Williams was famous for. Mind you, all this was done in dead pan. Just as serious as in a regular court.
I remember one night there was a guy playing in a show in town that the Midnight Court was trying to got something on. Well, one night he saw his darling wife off on the train, she going back to their home and a few minutes later he picks up a hot looking blonde, that he was trying to make for a long time, and they go to a nice quiet restaurant. There they're sitting in a dark corner and he's getting there fast. Already he's at her elbow. A couple of us had a warrant already made out for this guy and we spot him with this dame, she was a

lulu all right, so we wait for the right moment and then we tell the waiter to have him paged, that a coupla guys want to see him in the lobby. He sends back a message that he can't be disturbed. We should see him some other time. Then we march into the restaurant and up to his table. “You are hereby summoned to appear before the Midnight Court” I say, and hand him his summons. Well, you know it's an honor to be selected to come before the court and for a minute he's all puffed up and trying to impress the dame, but then he remembers where he was when we so rudely interrupted him, so he says, “Listen, you guys, make it next Thursday. Can't you see I'm very busy?”
“Oh,” we say, “resistin' arrest. Come along, you lug.” And he's pleading on the side. “Give me a break, fellers. Can't you see——— —“ you know how it was, talking from the side of his mouth, winking to us, but we play like we don't know what's on his mind. We get on both sides of him and pick him up and rush him out of the joint, all the time he's calling back to his dame. “Wait for me honey, I'll be back as soon as I can”, etc. etc. When we get him before the court they sure gave him the works for resisting arrest. That guy was taken for $45 and we had some swell feed that night.
That court was the most wonderful thing I ever witnessed, but it finally broke up when Fanny Brice put on pants and tried to sneak in. You see, no women were allowed. And Ina Clair tried to crash, too. And in Detroit, a bunch of Fairies started a fist fight to get in and the thing got so disorderly we had to give it up.

So we're sitting in the lobby and watching them register, the salesmen and travelling men coming in on the same train were lined up there in front of that window like it was a box office and we noticed a couple of kids a boy and girl, they looked like show people and they're standing there in line with the rest of them and the girl looks pretty nervous. So I go up and ask her if anything is the trouble. “No,” she says, “we're just registering. We're doin' the act”.
Well, that don't mean nothing to me so I don't pay any attention. So that night, I have a boy for a quick change, to do a few things for me and he picks up a little extra change, and I ask him what is doing the act. “Don't you know? One registers and the rest of us sneaks up and we get a big bunch in and then we split the ticket”. The next morning I'm checking out and taking care of my bill with the Greek who owns the

And in the meantime I hear steps scurrying down the stairs, one after another they're running out of the place. The greek runs after them hollering to come back.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.
Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the

extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment. Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the
