VOLUME XXI SEPTEMBER 1976 NUMBER
Dedicated to the propagation
of a better understanding among all the peoples of the earth, and of those who
are not of earth.
Now that the celebration of our two-hundredth birthday in
the United States is drawing to a close, perhaps we can turn our vision from
the past to the future. There are, of course, those who loudly proclaim that we
have none. That all of us will shortly be incinerated in a worldwide holocaust
of nuclear devastation. If they are right, and there is always the possibility
that they are, then Humanity, as a cloud of incandescent gas floating around in
the stratosphere, will have no more problems and no more responsibilities. If,
on the other hand, we somehow manage to muddle through the swamps and pitfalls
of international politics for a few more years without invoking the dread Genie
of the Atom, we do have a very definite responsibility to our children to do
whatever we can to make life possible for them also. During the past few
decades, very little has been done in this direction, which is why this sword
of Damocles is still hanging over all of our heads, still suspended by the
perilously thin thread which has already been nicked on several occasions by
the wild swinging razors of some of our political "Brinksmen."
As General Douglas MacArthur said, in his world shaking
speech of 1955, "It is no longer an ethical equation, to be pondered by
philosophers and ecclesiastics, but a hard core one for the decision of the
masses, whose survival is the issue! The ordinary people of the world have been
ready for peace for a long time. It is the Leaders who are the laggards. The
disease of power seems to confuse and befuddle them. They have not even
approached the basic problem, much less evolved a working formula to implement
the public demand. Never in the chancelleries of the world or the halls of the
United Nations is the real problem
raised. Never do they dare to state the bald truth, that
the next great advance in the evolution of civilization cannot take place until
war is abolished. It may take another cataclysm of destruction to prove to them
this simple truth. But, strange as it may seem, it is now known by all common
men. It would not mean Utopia at one fell stroke, but it would mean that the
great roadblock now existing to the development of the human race would have
been cleared. The great criticism we can make of the world leaders is their
lack of a plan which will enable us to go on. All they propose merely
gravitates around but dares not face the real problem. We are told we must go
on as at present - some say 50 years or more. With what at the end? None say -
there is no definite objective. They but pass along to those that follow the
search for a final solution. And in the end the problem will be exactly the
same as that which we face now.
We are in a new era. The old methods and solutions no
longer suffice. We must have new thoughts, new ideas, new concepts, just as did
our venerated forefathers when they faced a new world. We must break out of the
straight-jacket of the past." Although these words were uttered by General
of the Army Douglas MacArthur more than twenty-one years ago, in a speech which
the amazed reporters who covered it stated was, "probably the most vital
and important speech ever delivered in this century," very little has
changed as a result of it. The common people of the world are even more ready
for and desirous of peace, and the "Leaders" are ever more laggard.
The "disease of power" still confuses and befuddles them in all parts
of the world, and they continue to enunciate palliative theses which may
relieve the conscious, but have no effect upon the situation.
There has, however, been one bit of progress. Stimulated
by the need for, "New thoughts, New ideas and New concepts," the
Leaders of Understanding, Inc., (who have never had any power, and so have
never been confused or befuddled by it.) have conducted an in-depth study of
the basic human motivation and misunderstanding that result, from time to time,
in the mass tragedy and brutal nonsense known as war. As most of our readers
know, we have, in the past, printed and distributed many thousands of copies of
a paper entitled "The Area of Mutual Agreement." It contains an
analysis of the problem together with suggestions for a tool which could lead
to practical solutions. It is a proposal which has never been so much as
suggested as an avenue to peace. Nevertheless, its merits have been
demonstrated beyond all questions in the physical science, and it is time they
should be applied to the social problems that now seem so insoluble. Although
considerable mention has been made of this subject in our magazine it has,
perhaps, not been described in sufficient detail for complete understanding.
Because its implementation is one of the principal goals of Understanding,
Inc., we will go into it more deeply in subsequent issues of this magazine.
SEPTEMBER 1976 3
We have lived under the shadow of nuclear extermination
for so long that we seldom think much about it any more, but few persons
realize how very close we have been to it on at least three occasions in the
past ten years. The next time we may not be so fortunate, and it is only by
eliminating the condition that breeds war, that we or our children can look
forward with any confidence to the future.
Joel R. Clements
Actually this whole business of tipping was begun by Mr.
& Mrs. Newlyrich, anxious to create an aura of opulence by leaving large
and impressive tips to those who served them. Then, Mr. & Mrs. Country
Cousin, anxious to imitate the illusion, followed suit. By now, in my opinion,
the whole thing has gotten completely out of hand.
Some employers today deem it a privilege to work in their
places of business so they pay a minimum wage only and tell the employees to
get the rest from the customers. Certain hotels and restaurants are making it
even easier (sic) for their customers by adding the tip to the total bill. This
being a new tactic; a gentleman asked the cashier if this was the customary
"Yes, sir," she said demurely. "We feel it
saves the patrons the embarrassment of not knowing how much to leave."
"I see," said the diner, annoyed, "Your
customers are obliged now to pay the salaries of your employees - whether they
do their jobs well or not!"
"Why should I tip a bellboy in a hotel for showing me
to my room? Isn't that part of his job? How else could I find my room?" A
businessman asked me that question recently, and, before I could answer,
another man chimed in.
"I go into a store to buy a necktie. It never crosses
my mind to tip the clerk, no matter how helpful he is, or even if he gift wraps
my purchase. I expect management to figure that kind of service into what's
written on the price tag."
To tip or not to tip -- that is a question which, even
more than the H-bomb or other much headlined issues, is guaranteed to set
sparks flying in all directions. I know there are many people who work for low
pay plus, they hope, high tips. But, consider the other side of the coin.
I know a man who figured pretty closely last summer what
it would cost him and his wife to go to New York for two weeks vacation. They
had to return home three days early - "There were just too many
out-stretched hands along the way. Bellboys, waitresses, taxi drivers, maids,
hat-check girls, beauticians, barbers, guides - each one expecting at least
fifteen per cent over and above the stipulated price. I felt real guilty about
overlooking the dishwashers, cashiers, bus drivers and policemen. I'm sure they
were doing their best for me, too."
A college boy and a friend, both on very limited budgets,
sat down at a restaurant counter one day for short orders. Their combined bill
came to about three dollars. They left a quarter tip, according to their story.
They had received no extra service whatsoever.
"In fact," one of them told me afterwards,
"we had to wait at least fifteen minutes for the girl to finish her
conversation with another waitress before we could catch her eye and get
another cup of coffee."
When they reached the door, the waitress rushed up to them
and said, "Here, you guys must need this quarter worse than I do."
One of them reached and took the quarter and said,
"Gee, thanks. We sure do."
Quite often, persons who must depend on tips to make a
living wage are even more embarrassed by the practice than are the customers.
They are, as one girl once described it to me, in a position of "begging
for alms." A waitress who quit her job because
"I didn't want to be a beggar" is now a sales
girl in a dress shop, and much happier about the whole situation.
"Now I can figure my income tax on the basis of a
stipulated salary instead of either pocketing the tips with a guilty conscience
or trying to keep all those complicated records," she told me.
"What's more, my boss knows I'm working hard for HER, not just charming the
customers into bigger handouts for ME."
No doubt many people who work for tips have heavy expenses
to meet; perhaps a sick child who needs a doctor's care, or the home payments
are crowding them for cash, but why shouldn't they look to their employers for
a living wage, even as the bookkeeper, clerk, or coal miner?"
The public will continue to pay the extras until it
decides to do something about it. Should the tips begin tapering off to
nothing, then, and only then, will the employees concerned demand, and get, a stable
wage - and the public will be rid of that unfair and degrading nuisance -
SEPTEMBER 1976 5
I watched the leaves on the giant oak tree as they danced
gracefully in tune with the gentle spring breeze. What a truly magnificent sight
and just think, it all started from a little brown nut in a gray jacket.
The more I pondered this, the more miraculous the whole
process seemed, well, maybe not so much the process (science has pretty much
explained that) but the cause or creator of the process. How did all the
information necessary to produce the mighty oak get placed in such a small
Despite the magnificence of this creative process, it has
its limitations. It was at some point in time determined that an acorn would
produce an oak tree and likewise, oak trees would produce acorns. Nothing much
has changed from then to now.
What about human beings? Who or what establishes our
limits? Is there some force out there somewhere which at the time of conception
says, "This human being will be President and this one will be on Welfare?
What is the determining factor, who is rally in control of human limitations?
Any issue with this much magnitude naturally creates a lot
of controversy. However, a combination of time and scientific investigation are
gradually shedding a gleam of light on this could of confusion. We are at last
beginning to realize the validity of the Biblical Statement, "As a Man thinketh,
so is he."
There are numerous articles currently being written about
the relationship between the mind and the body and how that relationship effects
our health. Books stressing the power of positive thinking are not really new,
but they are still much in demand. In recent years there has been a continuing
increase in the amount of interest shown in Eastern religions, Yoga, and
Transcendental Meditation. Bio-Feed-Back is a process of using the newest
electronic machines to measure body response to thought patterns. By use of
this process people without any special prior training have been able to learn
to measurably change their heart beat and brain wave patterns. In many cases,
the ability to do this was developed in a brief period of fifteen or twenty
Just think, if people spent the same amount of time in
this kind of training that is spent on becoming a Doctor, what the end results
might be. One thing for sure, we wouldn't need as many Doctors and perhaps, our
health care would be less expensive.
The fact that it is being proven that we can, by
will-controlled thought, influence two of the most important organs (heart and
brain) of our body indicates that we have a lot more power than we have
previously been aware of. This being true, then it is safe to say we have more
responsibility for our own existence than we have heretofore been willing to
accept. This is not to imply that we understand how it all works, but the fact
that we don't understand it does not rule out the consequences caused by our
Every time we get angry we put extra stress on our hearts.
When we get embarrassed, blood rushes to our face causing some other part of
our body to be temporarily short-changed. Thoughts originating from the
emotions of hate, jealousy and envy create stress in our relationships which
cause the whole body to go through a tightening up process which restricts the
flow of blood throughout the entire body. These are only a few of the many
examples of how what we think really effects the way our bodies function.
Evidence of the influence of our thoughts on our lifestyles
can be witnessed at every level of Society.
Economists admit that public attitude is one of the prime
factors in determining the direction of the economy. Regardless of what the
actual facts are, if people are scared and hold on to their money, demand for
goods goes down causing jobs to diminish. This in turn further reduces buying power,
:hereby establishing a recessionary trend.
Thoughts are really powerful things. We think, for
whatever reason, certain people are inferior. From these type thoughts originate
social injustices which create much disharmony within the social system. This
disharmony is costing us an untold amount of money and an immeasurable degree
of emotional conflict.
The question is how much longer are we human beings going
to suffer consequences for not accepting the responsibility for controlling our
At what point are we going to stop popping pills and start
dealing with our thoughts which create the stress in our relationships that
make us feel that the pills are necessary for out survival?
How many recessions must we endure before we accept the
fact that much of the problem stems from our individual thoughts of greed?
SEPTEMBER 1976 7
How many more riots and racial skirmishes do we need
before we realize that our thoughts of hate and prejudice will destroy us?
It is pertinent to all of our survival that each of us
devise a way of evaluating our thinking process so that we avoid a
crystallization of our value system which eventually leads to individual and

British scientists have developed a simple chemical test -
the biphenyl test - to determine if new or old substances are likely to cause
Hopefully the test will replace the current method which
involves injecting the suspected carcinogen (cancer-causing substance) into
laboratory mice and then waiting to observe the development of tumors.
The new chemical test can check out in four hours what now
takes two years, about 60 mice, and $25,000 to prove.
The biphenyl test was developed by scientists at Surrey University
who expect that manufacturers will test as a matter of course all new
substances marketed in cosmetics, paints, food flavorings, dyes and additives.
A reliable screening can reduce the incidence of cancer,
and the biphenyl test seems most reliable. In trials on 70 known cancer-causing
agents, the test has been correct 68 times.
In the twilight of our journey,
When the years of youth have fled,
Gleanings of old recollections
By an inner light are read.
Back through corridors, unending
As the pages, each, are turned,
Back through ups-and-downs, and yearnings,
Where the ways of life were learned: -
Failures, fraught with many heartaches,
Mellowed by the passing years;
Conquests, born of youthful venture,
Won through strife and stress and fears;
Friendships, deaf to blight and error,
Standing ever ready, nigh;
Loyalty, a trust that knows no evil,
Questions not the reason why;
Love, a softly welling fountain.,
Springs from life's eternal spring,
Holding man and maid in bondage,
Whatsoever fate may bring;
Little tunes that strum the heartstrings,
Ending on a quaint refrain,
Tunes that hold the warmth of sunshine,
Too, the lilt of falling rain;
Laughter, gay as running water,
Like a testy little rill;
Lusty shouts of children playing
Hold out hearts in thralldom still.
In the quiet of the gloaming,
When the light and shadows play,
Life has compensations, truly: -
In the mind they're stored away,

Please forgive me for not writing the last few months. I've
been so busy and so much has happened. I simply haven't had time to write but I
promise to make up for lost time with this letter. I hope you will read it
Before I continue, I want to ask a favor - please sit

Well, first of all, the leg I broke when I jumped from the
dormitory window is almost healed, and the doctor says my limp probably won't
I had to jump because a bomb exploded across the hall and
set my room on fire. I escaped dressed only in my nightgown. The dorm burned to
the ground, and everything I own was destroyed.
Fortunately, a young man who was working across the street
in a service station saw me jump and called an ambulance, then rode with me to
Jim (that's the fellow's name) came to visit me everyday I
was in the hospital... brought flowers and candy and kept my spirits up. Then,
on top of that, when I was dismissed from the hospital he offered to let me
move into his apartment and live with him.
I accepted the invitation, and I must say it turned out to
be one of the wisest decisions I've even made. You see, Jim and I have fallen
in love. And we hope to get married before the baby comes.
That's right, Mom. I'm pregnant. Boy, am I pregnant: In fact,
the doctor says it's probably twins (wouldn't that be something?)
Now, I know what you're thinking but you really shouldn't
judge Jim before you meet him. Once you get to know your future son-in-taw,
you'll come to love him as much as I do.
He has the sweetest disposition of any man I've ever
known. He's soft spoken and very gentle. In fact, I'm sure you'll find it
difficult to believe that he's served five years in prison for armed robbery.
Please don't hold that against him. He wouldn't have
robbed the liquor store except he was trying to get some money to feed his wife
and kids. (Don't worry, he's divorced now.) Anyway, that's all behind him.
Besides who am I to judge him? After all, there's the shoplifting charge
against me. (Did I tell you about that?)
I was so ashamed. It was a real dumb stunt. But, I had to
have money to buy drugs, and I was too embarrassed to write and ask you for
You see, while I was in the hospital, I was in such pain
that Jim felt sorry for me and gave me something to help me relax. Then one
thing led to another until I finally got hooked on heroin.
That was a bad scene. I don't know what would have
happened to me if I hadn't been caught taking the necklace from the store. I
passed out while the policeman was questioning me, and when a doctor examined
me, he discovered that I had hepatitis - probably from a dirty needle.
So, I'm writing this letter from a hospital bed - all rosy
and healthy again. And Jim and I have decided that it's time to get married. (We
would have done so sooner, believe me, but Jim felt it would be best to wait
until he got off probation. There's some legal problem about the aliases he's
That's what I really want to discuss with you - the
wedding. You see, Jim's an atheist, and he just doesn't think that we should
have a big church wedding like you've always wanted.
So, by the time you read this, we will have eloped across
the state line, and I'll be Mrs. Jim Smith.
Well, that's about all the news, but, in ceasing, let me
The dormitory didn't burn down.
I don't have a boyfriend,
I'm not pregnant.
I haven't been on drugs.
I'm not in trouble with the law.
I don't have hepatitis and I'm not married.
But I did make a D in history and an F in chemistry, and I
want you to see that news in it's proper perspective.
OUTER SPACE VISITORS
(Burlington Free Press June 10,1926)
There are people in California who either are convinced
that visitors from outer space will land on earth this year, or else they are
willing to part with a chunk of cash to get publicity.
Recently the London bookmaking firm of Ladbroke & Co.
Ltd. quoted 100-to-one odds against visitors from outer space coming to earth
in 1976. Probably members of the London firm were astonished when bets began
"pouring in from Southern California."
SEPTEMBER 1976 11
Will H. Parry writes from San Diego to "National Observer."
"Ronald Pollard, an odds-maker for Ladbroke, says
eight El Cajon residents have bet $10,000 since January. Mrs. Ruth Norman a
75-year-old widow from El Cajon, says she has placed $4,000 in bets, one at
100-to-one, another at 60-to-one and a third at 40-to-one. She says she stands
to win $225,000, but she adds, "I'm not interested in a lot of money, only
enough to bring truth to earthmen."
"Mrs. Norman, a co-founder of the Unarius Society
(Universal Articulate lnter-dimensional Understanding of Science), says she has
been in touch with leaders of 59 other planets. She predicts that visitors from
outer space will come down near Jamul, a hamlet of a few hundred people in the
foothills east of San Diego, near tie Mexican border.
"I recently purchased 65 unimproved acres of land
rear Jarul for their landings," she says. "There will be other
landings in other places, such as England and Canada. There also might be
landings in the Phoenix area."
One shouldn't be surprised at anything which happens in California.
But it would be interesting to know by what method Mrs. Norman is communicating
with people from outer space, or what she hopes to gain by her far-out

PIPE CREEK (Spl) - At first she thought it was a large,
bright star. It was really a beautiful unidentified flying object, Mrs. Delle
Dennis is convinced.
The former non-believer of UFOs was converted early this
mowing. She watched one for half an hour.
The hovering craft was in the sky north of Medina Lake
where Mrs. Dennis lives in a home on a bluff where Medina River swell; into Medina
Mrs. Dennis said she awoke shortly before 3 a.m. "I looked out the window and saw what I first thought was the largest star I
ever saw," she told The News. She added:
"There was a great big ball. There was a smaller one
underneath. It was just hanging there in the sky, immobile.
"Lights were flashing from the larger ball and there
was a steady beam from the smaller one to the larger one. It was a beautiful
"I looked at my watch and it was 3 a.m. It hung there about 15 minutes then it started moving. It didn't say. It didn't swoop. It
didn't jet away. It moved smoothly.
"There was no noise, and I had the windows open.
There was not a sound, It moved from a northwest direction to a northeast
direction in a level, straight line and hovered.
"I watched it for maybe another 15 minutes and it
just hung there and I went back to sleep."
Mrs. Dennis said the flying object was maybe three miles
away and at cloud level.
I am not a lover of antiques for their own sake. Yet, a
worn wooden washboard hangs in my bright laundry room, right above my new
automatic washer and dryer in my modern new home.
To me, the washboard is not a decorative conversation
piece. It means much more than that. It belonged to my grandmother, who carried
it in her arms when she trudged off a ship from Austria-Hungary in 1907. At the
age of fifteen she was looking for a new life in a new land, a land so new to
her she was sure that modern conveniences like washboards were not for sale
here. Her washboard was a cherished and useful possession, as well as a link to
all she left behind; an old friend who shared her new adventure.
The washboard sat stiff and proud beside her as she and
her seventeen year old sister bounced along for two days and nights aboard a
transport wagon from Austria-Hungary to Fiume, Italy. It boarded the steamship
"The Slavonia" with her, and rested at the foot of her bunk bed. When
the steward bustled by with each person's daily ration of one hard-boiled egg
and a cup of warm milk, the washboard served as a tea-table, lending an air of
propriety to the dreary, crowded area between decks.
As the ship docked at Ellis Island twenty-two days later,
my grandmother stumbled from the gangplank, wide-eyed, still clutching her
washboard as she clutched her memories of what was forever left behind.
SEPTEMBER 1976 13
She balanced the washboard carefully as she boarded the
train that chugged to Bath, a small town in Pennsylvania. Her older married
sister, settled there, greeted her joyfully. That evening, for the first time
in almost a month, grandmother scrubbed on her washboard, washing away the old
life, trying to scrub away the homesickness and the vague fears of her unknown
The next morning she rose early to begin work in a
stocking factory, saving her pennies to pay her travel debt to her parents as
well as the monthly board to her sister. When her older sister decided to
return to Austria, my grandmother moved to Philadelphia, working as a nursemaid
for five children. Her washboard worked with her, as she scrubbed diapers on
the drafty porch in the early morning hours. She did her own laundry late at
night, when her employer could hear her splashing suds in the basement and
humming melodies from her homeland.
A few years later, she went back to Bath, her first home
in the new land. She planned to marry, and the washboard felt a more energetic
and joyful hand scrubbing the new linens. Grandmother felt a surge of pride -
she and her new husband could finance a wedding meal for forty-eight people!
But as time went on, the washboard must have sensed a deep
weariness in the hands that needed it so often. Grandmother interrupted her
factory job for only three months after my father's birth, and took in boarders
to help pay expenses. The birth of two more children made the washboard even
more indispensable and it hardly had time to dry between uses!
Soon new curtains and new slipcovers bounced merrily on
the treads of the washboard. A dream come true! My grandparents bought a house,
a sign of success in the new country. Thoughts of year-long debts were scrubbed
away along with the dust from my great-grandparents' brother and five sisters,
had all traveled the weary route to Ellis Island, and were welcomed warmly in
the new house.
Busy years followed, years filled with people, with
accordion music and dancing, with old-world memories and new-world hopes. Then,
suddenly, the "children" left - my father married, his brother moved
to new opportunities in a large city, his sister joined the convent. The house
was strangely silent now, and grandmother could hear the suds splashing over her
washboard. Many evenings she trudged down the cellar steps to scrub a little
more slowly and to think, as her husband worked night-shift in the cement
factory and the silent house brooded over her.
Too soon she was all alone - a premature heart attack
claimed my grandfather. Still the white wash rippled in the morning breeze of
the little town, as she held fast to her household routine. When she moved in
temporarily with her son to care for
his sick wife, her washboard accompanied her. Even though
her daughter-in-law's washing machine handled the large loads, the washboard
was much more practical and thorough for the kitchen towels and other small
When my grandmother died at the age of eighty-four, the
washboard still held a prominent place in her kitchen. Reluctantly, I took it
down from its nail. It had been a faithful friend, it deserved a place of honor
in my home.
Now, it watches me from its new nail every time I load my
wash into my shiny, efficient automatic. As I run my fingers over its worn
grooves, I think of the worries that my grandmother scrubbed away in the
billowing suds of hope, and I feel strengthened to face my own problems with
The washboard has become my friend, too!

Our most efficient (?) postal department has announced
that from this time hence, magazines which are returned to the publisher
because of a changed address will cost said publisher twenty-five cents each!
As you know, it costs plenty to send out the Understanding
magazine. Even with the bulk mailing privilege, it still costs too much. So,
with great regret we must announce to all subscribers, if you do not let us
know of your changed address before mailing time (the 15th of the month prior
to the issue of the next month) we cannot accept your returned magazine at the
twenty-five cent penalty assessed to us for doing so.
So ----- PLEASE -------- notify the magazine mailing
department of your moves at least one full month in advance of your move.
Magazines, as of this date will not be accepted and re-mailed.

Michael J. Campione of Cinnaminson, NJ, founder and
president of Del Val UFO, Inc., is no longer associated with the organization
in any capacity.
He will continue his research into a "contactee"
incident of a friend's which happened on July 7, 1974, at Beachaven, NJ.
This incident was widely publicized nationally last year
about how Charles Book and Joe From (fictitious names) saw a space craft, saw
it land, behind sand dunes and a strangely dressed man walk towards them. Joe
ran to their parked car a short block away and stayed in it. He noted the time
as Charles disappeared behind a sand dune with the space being.
Twenty-five minutes later when Charles reappeared and came
to the car, he could NOT REMEMBER what happened during the missing time. Joe is
a State Trooper and not one given to imagination
or hallucinations, but accurate in all his details of the
incident. He never talks of the incident to anyone, but one year later he
confided to Charles of seeing the same shaped craft over his home - outside of Trenton
- while on duty.
Since his encounter with a Space Man, Charles has been
responsible for saving his life twice and those of friends at least seven
times. His premonitions and warnings have always been in their immediate
presence. The most disturbing part of these warnings are his inability to know
or realize the words that issue from his mouth.
Unable to explain WHY he says or makes these warnings, his
friends are slowly dropping away from him and his occasionally strange
premonition warnings. All which saved these people from harm or death.
Neither can Charles and two male friends driving home
south on the Garden State Parkway, remember what happened to one missing hour,
when they turned off the highway for a brief look at something, and found
themselves one hour later two miles away.
