Prof. Childs dies suddenly in Oregon Redlands assessments increase by $3 million The assessed value of property within the city of Redlands rose by more than $3 million in the past year, it was disclosed today by County Assessor John Bevis. The new assessment roll, anxiously awaited by all governmental agencies who must have it before adopting final budgets, was presented to the County Board of Supervisors this morning. In the county as a whole, the assessment roll on secured prop erty rose by $53,185,280 while the unsecured roll was up $4,500,840. The total county figure was $737,149,830 for secured and $56,864,760 for unsecured, according to Mr. Bevis. And the city figures were good news to the Redlands City Council and to city officials concerned with budget preparation. For the county had suggested the city use an estimate of $1 mil lion as an assessment increase in budgetary considerations. This left the City Council hard-pressed in its effort to hold the tax line. The total figure for the secured property in the city of Redlands was $34,877,470 compared with $32,180,430 a year ago, up $2,720,040. The unsecured roll was $3,502,090 compared with $3,150,520 a year ago, up $351,570. Mr. Bevis said an analysis of the Redlands assessment increase showed that it is primarily due to new construction rather than reappraisal of existing properties. He noted that in the county as a whole this is also true with approximately 50 per cent of the increase coming from "new proper­ ties added to the tax roll for the first time," an hidication of growth and activity in this county." Mr. Bevis said the breakdown on the various school districts had not yet been completed and that figures for the new Redlands unified district were not yet available. The assessment figures from Mr. Bevis' office do not include assessments of public utilities which are appraised separately by the State Board of Equalization and do not become public until later. R. P. Merritt, assistant city manager, said today that the increase for Redlands "is certainly good news." The City Council is slated to adopt its budget tomorrow night. Ignore U.S. State department 59 U.S. students arrive in Cuba HAVANA (UPI) — Fifty-nine American college students, defying a U. S. ban on travel of Cuba, flew here from Czechoslovakia Sunday in hopes of meeting Premier Fidel Castro. They ignored State Department warnings of possible five-year prison sentences and up to $5,000 fines and went more than 8,000 miles out of their way to make the trip. Group leader Levi Laub, of Columbia University, said the students will spend a month in Cuba as guests of the Cuban Institute for Friendship Among Peoples (ICAP). He said they had no political motives for the trip and merely wanted to "see what's taking place on this island '90 miles from Florida' as we are tired of canned reports, misleading synopses, garbled accounts, half- truths and no-truths." The students arrived aboard a Cubana Airlines plane from Prague for the visit, which is being paid for by the Cuban government. They were welcomed at the airport by Student Union leaders of Havana University and Robert Williams, former official of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), currently a figutive from a kidnaping charge stemming from a racial clash in Monroe. N. C. Most of the students are from New York and the San Francisco Bay area. They flew to Prague in two separate flights via Lon don and Amsterdam. The U. S. State Department is sued formal wammgs to the stu dents in London and Amsterdam that they face possible prosecution on return to the United Stales, Travel to Cuba without a specially validated passport has been against the law for U. S. citizens since January, I96I. Laub handed out a press release on arrival which said the students did not feel they were violating any law and declared that "to deny Americans the right to travel to any country is contrary to the essence of democratic so ciety." Prof. Leroy Childs, early day resident of Redlands and nephew of Mrs. Jane Gaston, 1317 Sylvan boulevard, died at his home in Hood River, Ore., recently, fol- lowmg a heart attack. Mr. Childs attended Redlands High school wliere he graduated with the class of 1908. He graduated from Stanford university in 1912. He had been a resident of Hood River since 1914 and was superintendent of the Hood River Experiment Station from 1914 to 1952, after which he retired professor emeritus of the Oregon slate system of higher education. In 1958, Mr. Childs was awarded the honorary Hartman cup by the Oregon Horticultural Society for his services to horticulture. He leaves his wife. Hazel, and a son, Allison Oliver Childs, both of Hood River, and a daughter, Mrs. Sally Ann Randall of Moorestown, N.J. Another son, Leroy, was killed in action during World War 11.

Kreitz of In glewood as state commander, in one of the closest races in his tory, and adopting a number of critical and commendatory resolutions aimed at both state and national figures and policies.

Lost man found after night in mountains A Big Bear man feared lost on Mt. San Gorgonio 20 miles east of Redlands walked out of the mountain wilderness unharmed this morning, the Sheriff's Office reported. Missuig was 38-year-old James Black who started up the Vivian Creek trail to the top of Mt. San Gorgonio with a hiking companion Sunday morning. Searchers who had been tracking him all night caught up with Black at the head of Mill Creek canyon about 10:30 a.m. today. Black explained that he lost his way at the top of the mountain and became confused. He was caught by darkness and decided to spend the night on the mountain. His hiking partner, Joseph Bayles of Highland, tired about halfway up the mountain. Bayles waited for eight hours and when Black failed to return, he notified the Sheriffs Office. Members of the Valley of the Falls and the San Gorgonio Search and Rescue team participated in the search. DR. BRUCE B. BRAUSTON Brauston to be associated with Nielsen Dr. Ray H.

Kahl was re-elected president of the Redlands Unified school board at the noon organizational meeting today. Charles Stultz was re-elected clerk of the board and Supt. H. Fred Heisner, secretary. Richard L. Scott was elected as representative to the County Trustees association. Mr. Kahl, president of Redlands Federal Savings and Loan association, has served as president of the new Unified board ever sii.ce it came into existence in February. He was also president this past year of the elementary and high school boards which became defunct, effective yesterday. He had served on those two boards since 1955 and was elected to the Unified board in January. Trustees also decided to retain the existing salary schedule for all employes until after the legislature reconvenes to determine what, if any, school aid bills will be approved. A proposed salary schedule would have given teachers a 3 per cent increase but Trustees are hopeful that the legislature may give schools enough support to permit the 4 per cent increase sought by the Redlands Teach ers association. Because non-teaching personnel are on a 12-month salary basis and would lose a month of pay increase by the delay, the Trustees provided that any increases approved will be retroactive to July 1. Also approved today was the schedule of board meetings for this new school year. All meetings are slated for 7:30 p.m. in the board room at Lugonia and Orange. Meeting dates approved were July 9. 23; Aug. 6; Sept. 10, 24; Oct. 15, 29; Nov. 12, 19; Dec. 3, 17; Jan. 14, 28; Feb. 11. 25; March 10. 24; April 14, 28; May 12, 26; June 9 and 23.

Schools reaffirm offer for new Mariposa site An offer of $35,500 for 9.2 acres of property east of the city limits as a site for a new elementary school was reaffirmed in a formal resolution by the Redlands Unified School board today. Trustees made the original offer for that amount on May 22, based on appraisals by Edward G, Grigsby and Albert L. Johnson, both of San Bemardino. Owner of the property is Nine Points, Inc. which is developing adjacent properties for residential purposes. The formal board resolution today was based on conditions that necessary water stock is avail-, able (10 shares) and that any' deed restrictions can be lifted for i school use. The property is about a quarter of a mile outside the east city limits between Mariposa, extended, and Palo Alto, e.xtended. It is one of the few reasonably level sites in the vicinity and was offered to the district by Walker Smith, president of Nine Points, as an alternate to a site adjom- ing the city limits at the easterly end of Mariposa drive.
