In their final major action, out going directors approved participation in the association which would unite the Bcdlands Chamber with its counterparts in Yucaipa, Mentone, Calimesa, Loma Linda and Oak Glen. "The East Valley Association would give us a stronger voice in matters affecting the entire area," explained President Harold Mc- .Millcn who today turned over leadership of the local Chamber to the new president, Dr. David Haag. Mc.Millen revealed that by-laws for the combined chamber of commerce association have already been drawn and submitted to the various boards of directors of the chambers in each community. Initial plans were made at a luncheon earlier this month. tion, but that official ratification by each separate board is not expected until later this month or in July. Each community is to have three representatives on the board of the East Valley Association. McMillen stated that the association would be beneficial to the smaller "volunteer" chambers of commerce which can look to Redlands for help. The communities of Beaumont and Banning, although located in Riverside County, may also be in vited to affiliate with the new chamber of conunerce group, according to McMiilen. Today's noon board of directors meeting marked the final session for the outgoing board headed by McMillen and the first meeting of the new board headed by Dr. Haag. The 1963-64 directors promptly adopted a slate of recommenda­ tions presented by the retu-ing body and approved a balanced $25,185 budget to carry out the year's work program. Recommendations to the new board urged — (1) A continuation of the 1962-63 board's work program with special emphasis on industrial development. (2) Greater concern for water problems affecting Redlands. (3) A program of greater awareness in the realm of public affairs, federal budget, taxation and other major issues. (4) Continuing emphasis on civic affairs at the local and county levels. (5) Concern for military affairs and liaison with Norton Air Force Base. Today's meeting, the last during the summer months, was adjourned to September 25 when the Southern California Edison company will host the chamber of conunerce directors. LOS A.VGELES (VPU-A resolution Urging delay m construction of the East Branch Aqueduct of the Feather River Project until 1985 was sent to the state Department of Water Resources today by the Metropolitan Water District. The MWD directors urged concentrated effort to complete the West Branch Aqueduct by 1972 instead of attempting to complete both branches by that date. The resolution, passed Tuesday, corresponded to an earlier five- point proposal by the MWD which argued early completion of the 128 -mile East Branch Aqueduct across the Mojave Desert would be expensive and unnecessary. It contended that demands of the San Diego-Riverside - San Bernardino areas would be belter met by a branch program that would bring water to the Perris Reservoir near JIarch Field. Supporters of the East Branch have argued it was needed to insure adequate water supply. Cope classroom building still remains uncertain Quote of Day MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Gov.

Bill Gibson, assistant superintendent in charge of business, placed a call to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare in Washington this morning to ex plain the urgency. And officials there pledged to axpedito the application and advise the district by telephone if and when it is approved. Since it was not estabUshed that the funds would be officially available. Trustees of the Redlands high school district could not award the contract last night to Donald and JIcKee, lo\v bidders at $187,338. But they did set an adjourned meeting of the board tomorrow at 5:45 p.m. in the hope that approval will have been received by that time and the award can be made. The bid itself was termed "an excellent one" since it was nearly $15,000 below the $200,000 esti mate of /Vrchitect C. Paul Ulmer. Air. Ulmer said the Donald-Mc Knee bid would provide the 10 classrooms for appro.ximately the same price as an identical Cope building five years ago, despite the hike in construction costs in the intervenmg years. Donald and McKee, a combina tion of the local firms of Gordon Donald and Lewis McKee built several of the origmal buildings on the Cope campus, although not the identical building. The School district received approval of the $217,000 federal grant for building purposes last month but has been trying to get the grant transferred from Clement to Cope since Cope is the school in the tightest enrollment pinch. In another construction matter, the elementary board, in one of its final actions before gomg out of existence, awarded a $23,490 contract to Moore Construction company of Banning for erection of two portable classrooms at Smiley school. The district expects to have these units erected in time for the opening of school next fall to cope with an anticipated enrollment increase in southwest Redlands. In other transactions.

Authorized (he purchase of 24 White Sewing machines from the Harris company in San Bernar S.\N DIEGO (UPI) — Two Republican leaders today accused Gov. Edmund G. Brown of "political blackmail" and of tr>-ing to panic the people of California. Senate muiority leader John F. McCarthy, R - San Rafael, said "Gov. Brown is trying to panic the people of California into believing the state will stop on dead center unless his new ta.x program is increased." State Republican chairman Caspar W. Weinberger accused the Governor of planning to use his veto power to block measures for certain districts unless the legislators from those districts back up his program which was defeated Friday. The two today began a three- day tour of the state to inform the people that the Republican Party was not to blame for the defeat of BrowTi 's program and of the vurtues of their own program. At a press conference McCarthy said elimination of the installment payments of income taxes and bank and corporation taxes would provide $78 million in additional funds to finance the governor's program and leave a surplus. But the governor would accept no compromise, JlcCarthy said. "It was either accept the withholding tax or nothing." McCarthy said Brown was playing politics in that matter because "he promised legislators he would call a special session to consider their pet bills if they passed his program." McCarthy and Weinberger were to include Santa Barbara, Bakersfield, Fresno, Monterey and Salinas in the three-day tour.
