Battle of taxation C. of C, Standard Oil reply to Brown MR. AND MRS. ORANGE SHOW 1964 - Mrs. Naomi Reynolds, new "First Lady" of the Na- fionol Orange Show, pins a bouquet of oranges on the lapel of her husband. Earl S. Reynolds, OS a reminder that he is the new president of the 1964 citrus exposition to be held in San Bernardino March 72-22. Reynolds is director of public relations for the Kaiser Steel Corporation. He succeeds Lyman S. Rich, president of the successful 1963 show. Austria, a nation of many contrasts By ALLEGRA BRANSON United Press International VIENNA (UPI) — The Austro- Hungarian monarchy was once the largest European empire next to Russia. Then came the First World War and its dismemberment and what is left is Austria — about one- eighth the size of the land ruled by the Hapsburgs before 191S. Austria has an area slishlly smaller than the state of Maine— 32.375 square miles. It has a population of 7 million, about one- quarter of whom live in the capital city of Vienna. German fs the official language but the nationalities of the old empire — Czechs, Hungarians and Yugoslavs — make up sizeable minorities. Austria has not done well out of world conflicts. The first one cut her down to a minor power. Then came nnschJuss (or linkup) inflicted by Hitler's Germany and for seven years the name of Austria even disappeared from the maps of Europe. The last allied occupation troops did not leave the country un til 1955 althougli the restoration of -Austria as a free and indcpcn dent land was recognized by the Allied Control Council in 1945, in return for a pledge of political neutrality. From a distance and even to the tourists at first hand Austria is the pleasant land of Mozart (who wrote its national anthem) or the waltz king Johann Strauss. But in Uie harsh economic realities of today, the heart of most Auslrians docs not beat in three- quarter time. The cost of living has been rising, bringing with it the threat of inflation and disaster for thousands of low paid government employees or retired persons. And this despite the fact that the average family of three people pays only S5 a month rent for three rooms in the government-subsidized housing developments. IMedical, dental and hospital care are also part of a national health scheme. Austria is a land of contrasts. The family may have television but no running hot water; an automobile but only enough income to run it weekends; a modem kitchen but no bathroom. There are 2 million radios and 400,000 television sets but there are 250,000 families whose water taps are outside their apartments and only 14 percent of homes have their owTi bathrooms. Some 300,000 apartments inha^ bited today were built before 1900. The average Austrian goes to the movies once every 17 days, attends the theatre twice a year, the opera once a year and a classical music concert once every four years. Yet Vienna is the only town in the world with three full-time opera houses — which run at a state subsidized loss of $6 million a year. Earl Reynolds elected president of Orange Show Earl S. Reynolds, director of public relations for the Kaiser Steel Corporation, has been named as president of the 1964 golden National Orange Show to be held in San Bernardino ne.xt March 12-22. Reynolds, who has been associated with the Kaiser Industries since 1948 with headquarters in Los Angeles and the Fontana plant, succeeds Lyman S. Rich of San Bernardino. Both men were feted at the annual President's Dinner June 20. Under the guidance of Rich, Reynolds, who served as first vice president during 1963, and Ken \V. Dyal, secretary-manager of the National Orange Show, the citrus exposition established an all-time record attendance of 332,001, eclipsing the highly successful 1962 show which rolled up an attendance of 316,550. It firmly established the National Orange Show as the third largest fair or exposition in the state operating under Fairs and Expositions department of the state. This was accomplished despite the fact that the Los Angeles County Fair and the State Fair depends also on it's horse racing schedule. Reynolds, who was named to the National Orange Show board of directors in 1961, resides in San Bernardino and has taken an active part in many civic enterprises. Long range plans for the 1954 citrus exposition call for numerous improvements and changes in the show's format without overlooking the exposition's primary objective of being dedicated to the state's multimillion dollar citrus industry. "With the cooperation of departmental chairmen and community participation." Reynolds said, "we will again strive to bring to the general public an entertaining and educational exposition." S.-VCRAMENTO 'L'Pl'-The first in a scries of administration memos on money shortages appeared Monday in Gov. Edmund; G. Brown's battle for a bigger budget and faster taxation. i As the memo appeared, the: state Chamber of Commerce and the Standard Oil Company of California issued retorts to Brown' for singling them out as the chief j villians in the defeat of his 5157- millinn tax program. ' The memo was issued by Daniel Lieberman. director of Mental i Hygiene. He said the lejislature's; cuts in Brown's S3.2-billion bud- 1 get included S6 million for state: hospitals, out-patient clinics, and' community mental health programs. "This will be the first year I since World War II that we will have taken a step backward." he; said — unless the special session' called by Brown restores the mon-' ey. ! The memo reflected the tone of a meeting between Brown and his i administrative heads. ! At the meeting Brown de-, nounccd the state Chamber of: Commerce, Standard Oil. and 12: Republican senators for the "trag-! ic" Senate vote last Friday that I killed his tax reform program. | "I hope the stale Chamber oil Commerce and Standard Oil ofi California are proud of what they've done to this state," Brown said. "They're the principal culprits in this." The chamber promptly replied it "is proud of any part it has been able to play in bringing about greater fiscal responsibility in California." Standard Oil said it was "at a loss" to understand why it was singled out for blame by Brown. "Perhaps." said R.G. Follis, chairman of the board, "he was seeking a w'nipping boy to confuse the issue and direct attention away from the fact that his bill was rejected by the legislature after judicious and thorough study." DISREGARDS OBJECTIONS CAPE TOWN. South Africa lUPD-Joseph Satterwaite, U.S. ambassador to South Africa, has served notice on the government that he plans to host a multiracial Fourth of July reception here despite official disapproval. Foreign Minister Eric Louw earlier asked the diplomatic corps to hold only one reception to celebrate national days. This would automatically rule out multiracial emba-'sy fetes.

Miss Sherrod has ridden for the past four years and was a princess in the Sheriff's Rodeo contest. She is a Rider of the Purple Sage. Redlands Daily Facts Tuesday, June 25, 1963 -7 Capt.

Will be rebuilt Delmonico's demolished by cafe society crowd NEW YORK (UPII- The cafe society crowd conspicuously consumed Delmonico's Imperial Restaurant Monday night, breaking up the famed hostelry with pick axes, electric drills, hammers, crow bars and flying gilt - edged Cliina. The assault was at the invitation of S. Joseph Tankoos. who owns the Park Ave. hotel and plans a $1 million renovation of tlie restaurant. For publicity, he sacrificed the old diggings to the destructive whims of his best clients. High-heeled ladies and their expensively clad escorts acted like peasants at Versailles during the French Revolution. Jlrs. William Amory, a fashion leader, led off ivjth lusty whacks that toppled a plaster balustrade. Charles Van Rensselaer of the patroon clan hurled a plate through a huge mirror, inspiring a sympathetic reaction from Robert Gardiner, 12th hereditary lord of Gardiner's Island off Long Island, who splintered another mirror. Once aroused, the ladies proved more destructive than their mates. Mrs. Wellington Koo. sister-in-law of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, wielded a pick ax. Actress Anita Louise, in a golden helmet, applied a whirring electric drill to a table. "It's terrible—it's vandalism." said Princess Caroline Windisch- graetz, as she laughlingly tossed four cocktail glasses against a wall. The status symbol is the private car. There are 500,000 registered in Austria at present, many of them bought at the price of eating dark bread and lard for supper in order to meet the installments. The Austrian is hungry for durable consumer goods but he can hardly afford them at today's prices. Only 41 percent of homes have refrigerators, 36 percent washing machines and the steam iron is rare. Much of the apartment is furnished from money earned after hours or in weekend jobs. The Austrian family is generally small. The cost of raising children and the shortage of apartments are the main reasons. Many couples have their first child years after marriage. "We couldn't afford apartment, furnishings, a car and a child all at once," runs the usual explanation. Schooling in Austria is virtually free. A child attends the Volks- schule for four years, then either a Hauptschule for another four years or a "Gymnasium" (a combination high school and junior College) for eight. Austrian universities turn out graduates with the title of "doc tor" at such a rate that waiters in the tradition-bound coffee houses can safely address as "herr doktor" any male customer they know is not "herr baron." Austria is composed of nine provinces. The country borders West Germany, Liechenstein, Italy and Yugoslavia and along the Iron Curtain its neighbors are Hungary and Czechoslovakia. The boom industry of the moment is tourism. Last year foreign tourists accounted for 19 per- Lanes Now Available Nightly For Open Bowling Reservations taken for all organized groups Special Mixed Bowling Classes Every Monday Night at 8 o'clock Advanced Ladies Class Every Friday Morning at 10 e'eleck Ladies FREE Beginner Class Starts June 12th at 10 A.M. 640 W. Cotton Ave. EMPIRE BOWL Phone 793-2525 cent of Austria's total income and covered 37 per cent of its chronic trade deficit. Austria produces 90 per cent of its own food but the greatest problem is to keep the farmers down on the farm. There is a steady drift of small farmers to the cities although the government sub sidizes milk, bread grains and other products to help farm in^ come. There are a million per sons engaged in agriculture, 3 million in industry and 100,000 in volved in the tourist and trans portation industries. Austria has been governed by a coalition since 1945. The gov ernment is almost equally made up of the Conservative "Peoples Party" and the Socialists. Although Austria is located between "East" and "West" there has not been a Communist in Parliament since 1959. Catholicism is the state religion with 90 per cent of the population clauning this faith. Most of the remaining 10 per cent are Lutheran. Despite the overwhelming Catholicism, the divorce rate is high — 16.6 per cent.
