Redlands Daily Facts 6 - Monday, July 15,1963 Over 900 dogs already licensed in city Some 918 dogs have been licensed during the two dog clinics conducted in Redlands this summer, the city Treasurer's Office reported. A total of 443 dogs were licensed July 10 and another 475 on June 26. In addition, several hundred dog owners have purchased licenses for their pets at City Hall. The Treasurer's Office reported that the third and final dog clinic will be conducted in the park at Lugonia avenue and Washington street on July 24. Dog owners who fail to obtain the S3 city license before July 31 will have to pay double that amount as a penalty. To help bring records up to date, the Treasurer's Office asks to be notified by persons who obtained licenses last year for dogs that have since died. SIDE GLANCES By Gill Fox PO department urges Negroes take other jobs WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Post Office Department is trying to encourage its most highly edU' cated employes—Negro and white —to find other government jobs, a spokesman said today. The department, the largest employer of Negroes in the coun try, wants its employes to look for better jobs being offered by other agencies, the spokesman said. The program of encouraging workers with college educations to leave the postal service is an outgrowth of efforts to eliminate racial discrunination within the postal system. The department is conducting a survey of the educational attainments of its employes. The survey revealed that 44 per cent of the clerks and carriers in Southern post offices had at least some college education. More than half the college-educated clerks and carriers were Negroes. Assistant Postmaster General Bichard Murphy said the department felt a postal clerk or a carrier had no special need of a college education. But, since 85 per cent of the postal employes are clerks or carriers, there is not enough room to promote all the deserving workers, he said. The Civil Service Commission conducted a special examination among employes of the Birmingham, Ala., post office. The Birmingham employes who took the test and passed were encouraged to apply for jobs with other agencies where there was more room at the top. Similar tests will be conducted at other post offices where there are large numbers of highly educated employes working at lower level jobs. Murphy said. House works on reduction in income taxes WASHINGTON (UPI) - House tax writers today went back to theu* task of drafting a bill e.v pected to provide a cut of between $8 billion and $10 billion in indivdual and corporate income ta-xes. The House Ways & Means Committee was set to resume closed sessions on President Kennedy's tax cut proposal after a recess of more than three weeks while staff aides drew up a tentative measure. Chances are still considered bel­ ter than 50-50 that Congress will enact a tax cut this year despite the legislative tieup threatened by the coming fight over civil rights l^gislatimi. The tax reduction would be effective next Jan. 1. Although the Vfhile House has hopes of faster action, it is doubtful that the tax bill will be hammered into final form and steered to the House floor for a showdown vote before mid-August. • 1«1 It HW. 1-e.TM.

State Ph. 3-250S Eighteen take off on leg in Air derby SPRINGFIELD, 111. (UPI) Eighteen women fliers punched their timecards, climbed aboard their airplanes and took off from Springfield today on a cross­ country flight to Atlantic Citj-, N. J., in the 17th annual Powder Puff Derby. Other women, who bedded down overnight in Colorado and New Mexico, were expected to arrive at this stopping-off point later in the day. Arriving pilots taxied up to a painted area on the parking strip and shut off their engines while their co-pilots punch a card in a time stamper. When they are ready to leave the next morning, the pilot must again taxi to the designated point, shut off the airplanes engme, and wait until the propeller stops before her co-pilot can again hop out and punch her card. The 2,460-mile run started Saturday and the deadline for reaching Atlantic City is noon Wcdnes- daj-. Each flier has a handicap, so the women with the most mileage are not necessarily the leaders. The winner is decided with a formula covering elapsed flying time and horsepower. Among the powderpuff pilots who stopped here were six-times champion Fran Bera; Mrs. Barbara Jenison, Paris, 111., and Jean HLxson, Hoopeston, 111.

Ehrenburg attends reception MOSCOW (UPI) - Ilya Ehrenburg, 73-year-old "dean" of Soviet letters, attended a Bastille Day reception at the Frendi Embassy Sunday in his first public appearance since he was denounced by Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev last March. Ehrenburg chatted with guests but steered bis remarks away from his chastisement for "unor. thodox" views of the Stalin era. The writer, who is suffering from a heart ailment, appeared frail and drawn. SELL IT TOMORROW With an inexpensive Classified Ad Rockefeller warns of lunatic fringe ALBANY, N.Y. (UPI) - Gov. Nelson Rockefeller warned Sunday that the Republican party may be destroyed altogether unless it takes steps to stem the growing subversion from the "radical right lunatic fringe." I'he Ne\v York governor, a possible GOP presidential candidate next year, also warned against abandoning Northern industrial areas in order to concentrate on getting the Southern vote. Such a plan would be disastrous, Rockefeller declared. In a statement issued here, he said the Republican party must unite against the radical right elements—which would destroy the party—to save itself and the nation as well. Rockefeller pointed to the recent young Republican national convention in San Francisco as an example of how the "Republican party is in real danger of subversion by the radical, well financed and highly disciplined" radical right. He said the proceedings there were dominated by extremist groups, "carefully organized' well financed and operating through the tactics of ruthless, rough-shod intimidation. "The leaders of the Birchers and others of the radical right lunatic fringe ... who successfully engineered this disgraceful subversion ... are the same people who are now moving to subvert the Republican party itself," he said. By "Birchers" he meant the John Birch Society. "These are the tactics of totalitarianism," Rockefeller said. The governor said these extremists preach programs of "distrust, disunity and the ultimate destruction of the confidence of the people in themselves. They are purveyors of hate and distrust. .." Scientists hope to photograph Bailey's Beads LOS ANGELES (UPI) -American and Italian scientists hope to make photographic history eight miles above Canada later this month when they train their lens on the spectrum of the corona— the luminous outer envelope of gas around the sun. The spectrum has never before been photographed. To add to the international flavor of the project, the cameras will start to roll when a crescent of minute beads of light, first observed by an Englishman, appear. The beads of light, first seen by astronomer Francis Baily in 1836, will serve as the curtain riaser for aerial e,xperiments to be conducted during the July 20 total solar eclipse. The appearance of "Baily's Beads" will signal the start of 144 action packed seconds [or members of the National Geographic Society-Douglas Aircraft Co. Solar Eclipse Expedition. During the short time the total eclipse is visible, at least 20 experiments will be conducted aboard a DC-8 jetliner serving as airborne observatory. The beads of light last only few seconds before totality arrives. They result from the sun's rays silhouetting the mountains and valleys of the Imiar rim. The 520-mile?per-hour jet pursuit of the eclipse shadow racing across the earth increases totality viewing time by 44 per cent over ground-based observations. Location of the flight is in the area of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories where duration of the totality is longest. Named Project APEQS (Aerial Photography of the Eclipse of the Quiet Sun) the expedition will cruise at 42,000 feet and will intercept the shadow of the moon at approximately 4:30 p.m. (edt). Scientists expect improved photographic and photoelectric mea surements at the altitude because they will be above 85 per cent of earth's atmo.sphcre and most of its water vapor absorption. The aerial project, sponsored by National Geographic and Douglas, includes 11 other organizations. Three of the airborne experiments were developed as part of Douglas' basic research, with applications in space exploration. Douglas scientists and others from the Astrophysicial Observa tory of Arcetri, Florence, Italy, will photograph the spectrum of the corona — the luminous outer envelope of gas around the sun. This area has never been pho tographed because scattered light in the atmosphere limits ground observations of the corona. Nation produces millionaires at fast clip WASHINGTON (UPI) - The na tion is producing millionaires at the fastest clip since the get-rich- quick era of the late 1920s. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) — in its latest tabulation on the subject — reported today that 398 persons filed returns showing $1 million or more income in 1961. This was the largest number since 1929 when the stock market was at the peak of its stratospheric binge, and the total of $1 million taxpayers h i t a record 513. Ninety-two new faces were added to this select group in 1961. the biggest increase since 1928 when the number spurted by 221. The IRS statistics show only those who reported earning $1 million or more during the 1961 tax year. Authorities on the distribution of U. S. wealth estimate there are a lot more Americans who are worth $1 million today. Some have placed the number as high as 100,000. Government tax reports, of course, mention no names. But from these studies, it is possible to get a statistical profile of the average |I million taxpayer in 1961. It would look something like this: The average top-bracket ta.xpay er had an adjusted gross income of about $2 million. He paid about $800,000 in income taxes. Most likely he was on a pay roll, although his income from salaries was a drop in the bucket — to him, anyway. The biggest chunk of his earnings came from profits on the sale of such items as stocks and property. The IRS Millionaires Club accounted for about .8 per cent of all taxes paid in 1961. By contrast, those in the $6,000 to $7,000 bracket paid 8.4 per cent of all taxes collected that year.
