Holds Faith in Public Pride To Save Prospect Park Editor Facts: We shall pay taxes with pleasure, if they contribute in any way to the preservation of Prospect Park.

If the John Birch group is so bad, and they are the extreme right, why isn't the Foreign Policy Organization just as bad and they are to the extreme left? Many of our government officials are members of this organization. Why don't you come out for some one who is a real Repub lican and see what he can do for us? After all the gamble would not be as great as the gamble we uould be taking with Mr. Rocke feller. Gov. Ccranton or some of the others.

NITE VU 4-4610 - NA 9-8487 Dr. Moreland to give UR courses in literature Dr. Agnes Moreland, an outstanding student and graduate of the University of Redlands in 1952, returns to her alma mater this summer as a visiting specialist in American literature. A Negro, she is believed to be the first of her race to occupy a faculty position on the UR campus. She was graduated from the UR magna cum laude and has since earned her Ph.D. degree in literature from Columbia university. She has also been awarded a Danforth fellowship and a Danforth teaching fellowship in the years since she left Redlands. A member of the NAACP, the Modem Language association. Association of American University Professors and other civic and social organizations, she has traveled extensively in Europe and has held teaching positions at Spelman college and Atlanta university. Her most recent position has been as assistant professor of English at Boston university. At Redlands, she will teach three courses during the second erty. Pomona has developed a beau tiful hillside park adjoining the Fair grounds. The finest old trees were kept and pruned high; the slopes cleared, and walks maintained below the hilltop sites sold for residences. For a contrast in hillside treatment, look at Oak street in Redlands. Imagine the bulldozers in Prospect Park. My gratitude and appreciation will always go to the families who so long gave us their private parks to enjoy. I am trying to have faith in the public pride of Redlands to save one part of that generosity. Kuth E. Sargent 1565 KnoU road Wants a "Real Republican" Editor Facts: The time has come when we need a change in the White House and whom do you think can beat .Air. Kennedy? Do you feel Republicans are going to continue to vote for liberal candidates when they have the same give away programs as we have had for the 1st 20 to 30 years? People were thrilled over Ike — but really, what did he give us? His policies resulted in Mr. Kennedy in the White House. Certainly we would have been better off — had Ike have listened to his banker brother rather than Milton. Why must the Liberal element of the party continually harp same domestic policies as the Democrats have? The time is coming when people will revolt. Mrs. John Speidel 837 West Sunset. Push for More Parks Editor Facts: Enclosed you will find an article which might be of interest in the current park issue. This particular clipping is from The Milwaukee Journal, and is specifically about the beautiful parks in Madison, Wisconsin, state capital and home of the University of Wisconsin. The article states that the "National standard for park lands is 10 acres for every 1,000 population". I would be interested to know what Redlands ratio is — in comparison with the above standaril. Anyone who has visited or lived in Madison, as we have, will be quick to agree that it is a city of bautiful parks, "above the na- ional standard". Let's hope Redlands will continue to push for more parks. Lorraine R. Jorgenson (Mrs. James R.) 922 College Avenue summer session from July 29 to Aug. 30.
