4 - Monday, July IS, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Reservoir canyon pork ponds to be filled The two man-made fish ponds in Reservoir Canyon Park will be filled with water for the first time on Wednesday. Water will be diverted into the upper acre-sized pond about 10 a.m. following a brief ceremony by city officials. Once it is determined how well the ponds hold water a brood stock of fish will be planted. Then, when necessary public facilities have been installed, the ponds will be opened to fishing. The Ponds, located above the large open reservoir east of Highland avenue, were graded into final shape by the San Bernar­ dino-Riverside Chapter of the Engineering and Grading Contractors Association n June 29 and 30 as a community-betterment project. Water will be diverted from a Redlands Water Company weir- box at the top of the hill into the upper pond. By gravitational flow the water will drop through a pipe into the lower pond and then through another pipe into the open reservoir. The inmiediafe purpose of filling the ponds, however, is to determine whether the ponds will hold water without being lined. Engmeers presently believe that there is enough clay in the soil to prevent seepage. City Councihnan Waldo F. Burroughs, one of the sparkplugs of the Reservoir Canyon Park Proj ect, said that plans are moving ahead to open the park for public use as quickly as possible. He stated that the Rotary Club, which has adopted the park as a community project, intends to go all out during the next year. Immediate needs are a sprinkler system, restrooms and fencing for the ponds. Long-range plans include picnic and recreation areas. Artist speaks to UR class by telephone Internationally renewed artist- lithographer Frederick O'Hara cooperated in an educational venture with 20 children studymg in a special art class at the University of Redlands' Summer Demonstration School. A pioneer in art forms of Lithography, he became an "instant" source of information and stimulus to the class when they contacted him by a long distance telephone call placed to his private studio in La JoUa. Picking up the tab for the telephone bill and installing special amplifying and recording equipment so that all the class mem^ bers could participate was the California Water and Telephone Company. It was the first time that the media of telephone has been Used by a class in Riverside-San Bernardino Counties, according to J. C. Jlercer, commercial supervisor, and Fred R. Frost customer service represenative, of the local telephone Company. Mrs. Ota Jane Howell, teacher for the Demonstration School's first airt class, made prior arrangements with the artist and invited Vernon J. Dornbach, chairman of the University Art Department, to share in the conference telephone call. During their conversation with O'Hara, the children asked questions for which they could not find answers from their readmg, or ones that directly pertained to the artist's individual style of workmg. Other telephone calls are being planned during the remainmg two weeks of the summer school. The California Water and Telephone Company will continue to "pick up the tab" for the calls including one transocean contact with an educator in Japan. "Roorback" The "roorback" may be defined as a special form of political lie, one circulated so late in an election campaign that refutation is difficult, e.xpensive or impossible.

University of Redlands, will participate in the Seventh Annual Industry-Educa tion Council Conference at the University of California Conference Center at Lake Arrowhead August 14-17. Dr. Brown is a member of the Board of Directors of the Council and will conduct one of the workshops. The yearly California Industry- Education Conference is limited to 100 senior industry and education leaders and provides an opportu nity for leaders in business, industry, education and the professions to thoroughly discuss the educational problems which may be solved through co-opertive action. The Industry-Education Council was founded in 1957 under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences as part of the activities to stimulate local action in support of secondary education which the Academy and President Ei­ senhowers' Committee on Scientists and Engmeers sponsored. Currently the Industry-Education Councils have established local councils in which school systems and industries set up cooperative activities and coordinate activities that arise. Featured on the program along with Brown will be Paul Fannin, Governor of Arizona, and Dr. Jlav Rafferty, Superintendent of Public Instruction, State of California. Refrigerator fire fills rooms with gas An apartment at 1123 West Palm was filled with dangerous gas Saturday when a refrigerator caught fire, the Fu-e Department reported. The fire broke out about 6 p.m. when the refrigerator's electric motor shorted out. A gas line in the refrigerator broke allowing a large quantity of freon to escape. Norris Brackett, occupant of the apartment, was forced out of the building. Firemen put on gas masks and carried the refrigerator to the outside. Large fans were used to clear the building. Two grass fires were also handled by Redlands firemen over the weekend. They assisted state fire fighters in extinguishing a small brush fire along the west side of Alabama street in the Santa Ana wash about 1:56 p.m. Saturday. The fire was located next to the new county cut-and-cover dump site. Sunday at 3:21 p.m. firemen were called to Redlands boulevard and Te.\as street to put out a grass fire along the Zanja storm drain on the southwest comer. Day Nursery needs aid on transportation Assistance with transportation on Thursdays at Redlands Day Nursery was requested by Mrs. George Dilthey, nursery director, when the board met recently in monthly session. Jlrs. Dilthey takes the school- age children of the nursery to the library on Thursdays from 1:15 to 2:45 and volunteers to help with their transportation would be appreciated, it was announced. Current needs of the organization uiclude a portable cooler for the office and cartoon films for the projector. A recent contribution to the nursery was the work of Elza Grisamore who collected and repaired all of the broken toys. College students Chuck Goldie and Chuck Beedy painted Imes at the street intersection as a contribution of service. A third memorial plaque has been donated to the nursery. Anyone wishing to donate to the community project in memory of deceased friends or relatives may do so by contacting the nursery. Jlrs. Elmer Parks, vice president, conducted the meeting in the absence of the president, Jlrs. Gordon Witter. People's Column Preparations finished for Mentone Bar-B-Q Preparations are now complete for Jlentone's biggest summer event — the annual barbecue at the Jlentone roadside park, ac cording to Jlrs. Claire W. Bahney, chairman of the Booster club. It will be held this Sunday, July 21, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Proceeds will be used to further Men tone youth activities.

Joinf advertisement sparked interest in Community Music Editor Facts: The Directors of the Redlands Community JIusic Assoiation join Tie in wishing to e.vpress appreciation of the fine ad which appeared in your paper last week sponsored by a group of community spirited businessmen. It not only sparked interest in our opening concert, but for the entire season. It is very encouraging to have our businessmen realize the importance of the "Bowl" Concerts to the Community. With the wholehearted loyalty of all Redlands, we will, undoubtedly, be able to meet the budget for this season. Jlrs. George Emmett JluUen Founder-President Redlands Community JIusic Association, Inc. Prospect Park Offers Many Possibilities I am greatly interested in the Prospect Park project, and have heard much discussion about it, pro and con. I am heartily in favor of the purchase of this property for a city park, and I believe a Park Bond issue would be the most painless method of acquiring it if the City has no available funds. The south side of Redlands is so rapidly being covered up by crowded subdivisions that if we want any open space, aside from streets and parking lots, it is important that park areas be designated now. Prospect Park is ideal for the purpose, offering the special advantages of terrain and planting that is beautiful, mteresting and useable without too much work­ mg over. An unusual kind of city park could readily be developed there. I believe if it were planned to have some of the features of a botanical park or arboretum, it would have definite appeal, both to community pride and as an attraction for visitors. It already has unusual planting, which could be diversifed by more native and hardy naturalized shrubs, trees and flowers, replacing some that is overgrown and moribund. The west half of the Cajon-Highland corner could well be planted to grass where children could rassle and play ball as they do on the Kingsbury school lawn. Winding paths through the hilly wooded area, with an occasional log bench, plenty of trash receptacles, a small comfort station, a few picnic tables and benches, a play area where people could bring young children — it could become an e.xtremely pleasant neighborhood park. All planting should be plainly marked with name and native orign; the Horticultural .Society would help with that, I am sure. A reasonable amount of lighting at night would serve to enhance both looks and safety. There would probably be some vandalism and misuse, but why not try it out in a sunple way, as a community possession of beauty and interest? Other cities have acres of unpoliced parks which give enormous pleasure, and remain undamaged. Jlrs. Stewart R. Hotchkiss 1801 Rossmont Dr. Rafferty blasts Braden for personal attacks SAN FRANCISCO (UPD— Dr. Ma-x Rafferty Sunday accused state Board of Education President Thomas Braden of "making personal attacks on me" around the state. "There is no question that Jlr. Braden has been making such attacks regularly—but I will not reciprocate," the state superintendent of public instruction said. Rafferty's statement was in response to Braden's speech in Jlar- in County Saturday when he accused Rafferty of lacWng "good faith" in dealing with the Board of Education. "I have never questioned any of the board members as to their good faith," Rafferty said. "And I do not think it is in the best interests of the state's children for whom we are all working, for a board member to question my good faith." Braden's charge was made at a JIarin County gathering of the American Civil Liljerties Union. Rafferty also dismissed t h e Oceanside publisher's accusation that he had made "plauily false" lANDAAARK NO. 2 - "From jewels to decoration" was the clue for this Redlands landmark, second in the current contest series. The onswer is: building located at 14 North Fifth street, now owned by Bruce L. Danielson, decorator. This was originally Stephenson's Jewelry store, built in 1885, the first business house in Redlands to be built after street boundaries were determined. First located at State and Fifth, it was later moved to its. present location, in succeeding years it was Oleson's Jewelry Store, lofer C. L. Smith's Jewelry store and in the post few years, Mr. Danielson's interior decorator studio. statements about board members and policies. 'I have never had any harsh words for any members of the state board," Rafferty said. "I cannot say the same for certain members of the board, however." The superintendent said Braden had mistakenly construed a new high school economics course his department is developmg as an anti-Communism course." "It is only a suggestion economics course for senior high school students that would go from Adam Smith down to our economic system today," Rafferty said. 'Necessarily, a small portion of the course will deal with a comparison of the capitalist system and other economic systems, including Communism," he said. In his speech to the American Civil Liberties Union, Braden LANDMARK NO. 3 — Know what this picture represents? This is the third in the Landmark game series sponsored by Redlands Diamond Jubilee historical committee. The clue is: "Presidents have passed through these arches. Take the Dinky to Idyllwild, Redlands Junction and Tippecanoe. To go on a foot, woit for a toot." Participants should send their answers on a postcard addressed to Mrs. Dorothy H. Brenon, 821 East Colton avenue, with their own name and address. Postcards should be postmarked no later than next Sunday midnight. The answer to today's question will be published in next Monday's Facts. said that Rafferty had recently made some statements "which are so plamly false and perhaps defamatory of the citizens who are serving on the board of education that I now question his good faith." Braden quoted Rafferty as having said that the state board opposed. Rafferty's proposal to remove the Dictionary of American Slang from school libraries. "This is not true," said Braden, "the only objection of the board in respect to the Dictionary of American Slang or any other book anywhere is a statement that the decision as to what books are to be in libraries should be left to librarians."
