Because of legislative enactments regarding the .Aid to Needy children program, the Welfare department found itself confronted with the need for more office space even before the building could be finished. The board had considered adding another floor to tlie building but had held back because of Uie extra cost of as much as $466,000. Originally, the idea was to centralize all welfare functions in the new building but inherent in the plan to use basement office space will be retention of branch offices in Fontana and m Redlands. relays and rolling tires for distance. July Fourth Kids' games chairman is Grayback Scout commissioner Col. William Freeman. Youngsters who plan to take part in the games are advised to wear old clothes. Redlands service clubs will be operating a variety of booths which will be located in a row along the Zanja between the games area and the picnic area off University avenue. The Redlands Junior Chamber of Commerce will be operating soft drink and milk booths as well as a fireworks ticket booth, the Venture Club and Na\'y Jlothers will be selling home-made pies, the Optimists will be selling snow cones, the Lions Club will be selling popcorn, the Soroptimists will operate a candy and peanuts booth, the Business and Professional Womens Club will sell ice cream and the Zonta Club will sell novelties. Professional entertainment will perform in the park during tlie afternoon. The entertainment will be conducted from a special bandstand to be located along Chapel street, between the service club booths and the Rose Arbor walk. Valley College sets tax rate of 43 cents A tax rate of 43 cents was set yesterday by the San Bernardino Valley college board of trustees. The new rate is down sharply from last year's 72.6 cents which included a 35-cent over-ride for capital outlay purposes. Added tin's year for the first time, however, was a community sen'ices ta.\ of 5 cents. It was added over the protests of Joseph Snyder, board chairman and trustee Mrs. Eva JI. Kennedy.

Beckord was elected as president of both the Mission elementary school board and the Redlands Union High school board at the organizational meeting last night. And Angus Bruce, newly appointed to the high school board but already an elected member of the Mission board, was elected board clerk. Wilbur Vroman, formerly assistant superintendent of busmess for Redlands schools, started his new job yesterday as superintendent of the Mission and high school boards and wiU serve as board secretary. Mr. Beckord has served as president of the Mission board for the past two years and has also been president of the County Board of Education since July, 1962. He has the longest tenure of any member on the high school board since he was appointed Oct. 16, 1962, and was elected to a regular term in April. Newly seated on the high school board last night were Mr. Bruce, Bill Luke of Fallsvale, both new appointees, and Mrs. Betty Rabenstein and Mrs. Patricia Bailey, elected to four-year terms in April. Mr. Beckord, Mrs. Rabenstein and Mrs. Bailey were also seated on the Mission board, the two women as new members. In one of their first decisions, the two boards agreed to hold their meetings concurrently on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at Mission school. The Mission school board is responsible for the education of children at the Mission and Victoria elementary schools west of Redlands as far as Tippecanoe. The newly constituted Redlands high school board does not have any school buildings within its jurisdiction. But its primary task will be to assure an education for children in grades 7 through 12 who reside within the Mission ele mentao' district of west Redlands and the mountain elementary dis trict of Fallsvale east of Red lands. This is accomplished through a tuition arrangement with some other school district. At present, the board is making such arrange ments with the Redlands Unified district although it could legally contract with some other district such as Colton or San Bernardino if it wished. Yucaipa school district trustees reelect Edwards Dr. J. Alton Edwards was reelected president of the Yucaipa Joint Unified School board at the annual organizational meeting last night and John P. O'Connor was retained as board clerk. Dr. Edwards and Mr. O'Connor have held their respective posts since the organization of the unified board last February. They were elected by their fellow board members following the election of the unified board in January. Supt. Merryl Powell was named board secretary. With unification fully effective yesterday, the Yucaipa Unified board now governs the policies of Yucaipa Jr. - Sr. high school for the first time. Yucaipa and Redlands held simultaneous and successful unification elections in January, each unified district encompassing the areas formerly within its respective elementary district boundaries. The district took four other actions at its organizational meeting. Members voted to leave next year's school calendar unchanged from a previous adoption. This means that school will start in Yucaipa on Sept. 16 and end on June 12. Christmas vacation will be from Dec. 23 through Jan. 3 and Easter vacation from March 22 through March 28. Yucaipa students will thus be at variance wth Redlands stu dents on two occasions. Redlands schools will have a "Spring" va cation instead of Easter this year during the week of April 5 (end of third quarter). And Redlands schools will not end until June 18. In other actions, the Yucaipa board: Set its meetings for 7:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month in the Yucaipa School admijiistration building, starting Aug. 6. Established Aug. 6 as the date of a public hearing on the school budget for the 1963-64 year. Awarded the bus transportation contract to Roscoe Deaton of Yu caipa at a cost of $65,000 per year on a three-year contract which will be reviewed annually. Deaton was the sole bidder for the school contract. Kennedy gives Italy the Big Picture By Doris Fleeson Brush fire covers half acre A brush fire, probably caused by a chain saw, was e.xtinguished after it covered about one-half an acre south of West Cypress near Terraeina boulevard this morning, according to the fire department. The fire was some 300 yards behind 1601 West Cj-press above the end of a new cul-de-sac in an area being graded for new homes. Workmen were sawing up some trees when the blaze apparently started, about 10:55 a.m. An orange grove helped stop the fire from moving to the south. It burned to within 20 feet of a barn owTied by Mrs. Lee Hawkins, 1421 C>T>ress, before being halted by the firemen. Three pieces of equipment were sent to the scene of the fire. 1 I * FOX WEST CO.'.ST THEATIf POX *^ REDLANDS Week Days Cent. From 7 P.M. Saf. « Sun. Cont. From 2 P.M.

ROJIE. — About Ell that President Kennedy can do politically in Italy is to give its politicians what President Eisenhower used to call "the big picture." This is admittedly less satisfactory than talking turkey with a stable government of assured tenure, but it has its uses. One is to remind the quibbling, quarreling factions that their rich uncle has great projects afoot which require stable partners. Full cooperation with anything less would be too hazardous to the United States. Italy's politicians have been able to prolong their total immersion in factionalism because the coun try's economy continues sound. In this they unfortunately differ little from their foreign counterparts who play the same little games when satisfied that people are working and eating. It was, of course, a jolt to the West when April's national elections saw the Communists gain an unexpected million votes with some gains, too, on the far right. Now the Socialists, who were the old balance of power, are splitting apart. The prospect of a long per iod of unrest here while would- be kings and kingmakers strive for advantage is a dismaying one. In contrast, the Vatican is dis playing a sensitivity to the rush ing pace of change which will help to bulwark all Western governments. The Sacred College's conclave was brief and chose the heir-apparent preferred by Pope John XXIII, whose course had been so universally admired. The new Pope Paul VI has waited less than a week to announce that the universal council of the Roman Catholic Church v/ould resume September 29. This is the Ecumenical Council begun by John XXIII which fired so many men of goodwill outside About People William Elmer Kingham, Redlands photographer, has had three photographs accepted for the Western States Print Exhibit to open Saturday for a four day showing at the Statler Hilton hotel in Los Angeles.

The daytime s^Wmming hours of 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. find the pool rather crowded and Newmann said that adults would rather swim in the evening when there are less people. The pool is heated to a temperature range of 78 to 82 degrees. The facility is available for rental for private parties, or organizations on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening from 5:30 through 9 p.m. for a nominal charge, Newmann said.

There had been predictions that it would not be convened before winter, possibly not this year. Paul VI is already keeping up a heavy schedule. He sees the papal foreign minister daily and is granting audiences to a wide variety of people and organizations. One of them last weekend was for the press corps which covered the last days of John XXIII, the conclave and the coronation. He can expect many of its members to return for the council. The President's audience with the Pope, especially since the unifying council is so soon to be resumed, will be a significant occasion. It will, of course be entirely private. Apart from all public considerations, it is certain to be a deeply moving personal moment for the Pope and the first Catholic President of the United States.

That visit will advertise NATO and his efforts to hold it together and make it a viable instrument of military policy. At present it is somewhat in eclipse, and it is apparently Gen. Charles de Gaulle's intention to keep it so. DR. JAMES A. SADOYAAAA Dr. Sadoyama opens practice in Clock bidg.

On West State street Phone company workers occupy new building This is "get settled" week for many employes of the California Water and Telephone company as they occupied their offices for the first time in the newly completed modem building on West State street between New York and Tennessee. Built by Donald and McKee at a cost of some $150,000, the new building will provide additional space for e.xpansion of equipment in the main building at 11 Orange street. The move also paves the way for demolition of the old building on Fourth street just south of Citrus so that a new building can be erected on that site by the mid- No fireworks insurance group warns With July 4th at hand, the combined fire agencies of San Bernardino County issued a public reminder today that possession, sale or discharging of fireworks within the county is illegal. The only fireworks that are permitted are supervised public displays. A two-hour fireworks program is scheduled at the University of Redlands stadium at 7:30 p.m. on July 4th. Dr. Gibbs to give tallc on med Child' Dr. Elsie Gibbs of Redlands University will describe case histories of students from schools which have done an effective job with gifted children — and some where the work hasn't been so effective — tonight in Riverside. Dr. Gibbs, long-time educator who has specialized in school pro grams for the gifted, will speak on what the school can do to help the gifted child at 8 p.m. in Room 1000 of the Social Sciences Build ing. University of C^fomia at Riverside. Tickets for the talk, third in a weekly series on "The Gifted Child" presented through University Extension, are ?2.25 at the door. Areas of controversy such as hmv much acceleration schools should permit and how early it should start will be covered by Dr. Gibbs. Among the major problems she will also discuss is the place of grades in special classes for the gifted and their interpretation and use for college entrance. Dr. Gibbs, professor of education at Redlands, has served as chairman of the state conmiittee for study of the gifted which was set up in 1950. Last summer she served as representative of the California Teachers Association at the World Conference of Organizations of the Teach Professions at Stockholm, Sweden. die of 1964. according to Dale Eckrote, Redlands district manager. When completed, the Fourth street addition will house all the business office staff, and the manager's office. The space these departments now occupy in the Orange street building will then be utilized for addition of more equipment on the first floor and by the operators on the second floor. Reshuffle As the first step in this reshuffling of personnel and office space, however, moving vans collected the furnishings of some sLx departments on Saturday and deposited them at the new West State location. And the appro.ximately 40 em­ ployes involved in the move were busy unpacking boxes early yesterday morning so that business could get under way. Most of those moving are clerical or supervisory employes whose work is internal to the company, with one exception. This is the company's personnel and employment .department which now occupies the front corner of the new building just to the left of the main entrance. This department now has a large waiting room, clerical space, testing rooms and interview rooms at the new location. Other departments getting settled today are plant service, plant equipment installation, plant equipment maintenance, plant construction and the traffic superintendent and staff. The largest number to move were in the company's engineering department Main Office Still located in the main office on Orange street are the business office, which includes sales, records and PBX service adviso,-, the service or wire center, all operators and their supervisors, the chief operator and assistants, the manager, Mr. Eckrote, and his secretary, Jlrs. Dan Dolezel. The new building on the West State site is the second one the company has built there. The first was smaller and provided certain service facilities for construction crews and vehicles which have been operating out of that location for the past several years. The telephone company complex is on the north side of West State and is the only major development on that side l>etween .New York and Tennessee.
