Proceeds to Rediands Community Music Association, s cision on two proposed ordinance amendmtnts until ne.\t Monday at 9:30 a.m. Supervisor Oiairman Nancy Smith vigorously opposed such a delay and said the l)oard would be subject to "much justified crit- isism" if it did not follow through with the suits against sign companies whicli maintain highway signs that are nonconforming under the present ordinance. "We have already felt a great deal of public pressure and criticism for not starting the suits. We should not delay them any longer," she declared. Sign company representatives pointed out that the suits would not be necessary if the com- because of companies would then take the nonconforming signs down volimtarily. Two separate amendments were introduced to the supervisors dur^ ing today's two-hour hearing. The first, presented by the county Planning Commission, would define a "business or industrial" structure as intended in the original ordinance. Planning Director Neil B. Pfulb reported that sign applications should be based on structures which have already established the character of the roadside. The second amendment, proposed by United Outdoor Advertising, would expand the area now allowed for billboards from 500 feet on each side of the business or industrial structure to 1,000 feet on each side. The amendment would also open up 2,000 feet on the opposite side of the highway for billboard advertisements. They said they would agree to a maximum of eight signs in the expanded area. A sign company representative claimed that his company is losing $100,000 a year because the present ordinance is too restrictive. "There is no place to relocate our signs," he declared. Joseph Prendergast of Rediands urged the supervisors to "stand your ground" and to not allow promise amendment is adopted more billboards. He pointed out that Rediands was confronted with an attenpt by outdoor advertisers to liberalize the city ordinance. "A great many people in Red lands spoke out against billboards and the City Council was persuaded to prohibit new billboards altogether," he stated. Mrs. Ruth Cranmer, also of Rediands and a member of the committee which framed the original county ordinance, said she favored the amendment as proposed by the Planning Commission. Supervisor Ross Dana spoke in favor of postponing court action against nonconforming billboards. He maintained that people who live in the desert don't have the same opinion as Valley residents. "Desert people have freeways, too," he said, "and they have a need for well placed billboards." Dana stated that generally he had no objections to the Planning Commission definition of a "business or industrial structure," but that he would like give some more thought to expanding the area to 1,000 feet on either side of such structures. Supervisor S. Wesley Break of Rediands said he feared such a policy would permit the sign com panics to place eight billboards every 2,000 feet for miles and miles. Supervisors to aid KCAL in new site County supervisors yesterday pledged themselves to help locate three 213-foot KCLA transmitter towers on a site that will not hinder flight operations at Redlands Municipal Airport or Norton AFB. Labeling it the worst controversy he has faced during his long tenure in offive. Supervisor S. Wesley Break emphasized that the Board bad a responsibility both to the radio station and its listeners and to the airport and the pilots who use it. On his motion, the Board deferred its vote until September and promised to work toward finding a suitable tower location.

NEW YORK (UPI) - Citrus: California Valencias: 7 cars, half boxes $3.35. A low bid of $103,649 was submitted yesterday afternoon by James P. Powers of San Bernardino, for construction of a 7,000 square foot addition to the Methodist church. The Powers bid was the lowest of sj.t submitted. The others ranged upward to a high of $123,875 by Robinson and Wilson of San Bernardino. Donald W. Hunt and Swen F Larson were the only local con tractors to bid on the project. The addition will be constructed at the easterly end of the present Methodist church building on Olive avenue and will extend part of the way into the Olive avenue parking lot. The structure will provide an auditorium for 500 persons and dining hall for 300. A stage is included. By use of sliding partitions, the new Weeks Fellowship hall can be converted to five classrooms for Christian education purposes. The Methodist church board of trustees, headed by E. T. Fletcher, will meet Friday to consider the bids and decide on the contract award. Plans for the new building were drawn by C. Paul Ulmer, Redlands architect.

(Mrs. Davis RL) Kirkpatrick, who for 50 of her 100 years of life was a resident of Rediands, died in a San Bernardino rest home Sunday. Mrs Kirkpatrick, who celebrated her lOOth birttiday last December 18, was bom in Haydon, Indiana. She came to Redlands 50 years ago with her husband, the late Rev. Davis M. Kirkpatrick, who for several years was pastor of the local Unitarian church. They first lived at 236 Cajon street, later building a home at 703 Cajon street where they made their home for many years. This home is now the parsonage for the Bethany Reformed church. Joining the Contemporary club in 1913, Mrs. Kirkpatrick was a devoted worker for this woman's club and devoted much time to its many projects carried on to help pay off the mortgage. In later yeaics, when age prevented her from taking an active part in the club program, she was made an honorary member. During World War II, the Kirkpatrick home was always open to the service men stationed at Arrowhead Springs, many of whom continued to remember her many kindnesses and with whom she corresponded in subsequent years. In recent years, Jlrs. ICirkpat- rick had lived in a retirement home. Several months ago she broke her hip in a fall and was hospitalized for weeks. She was then taken to the San Bernardino rest home where she died Sunday. Her only survivors are several nieces. Graveside servises will be con ducted at 10:30 tomorrow mom- MRS. MARY S.

Brokers continued to attribute at least part of the decline to growing fears that risuig interest rates eventually may lead to a boost in the discount rate. Added to this is the fact that the Securities & Exchange Commission's report to Congress on the securities industry is expected sometime this week. Other reasons cited for the extended decline included investors' concern over railroad labor unrest, delays in tax reduction legislation and racial tensions.

The Southwest Broadcasting Company, which owns the local daj-time Spanish-speaking station, sought a reversal of the height limit and wanted permission to construct the towers at the 213- foot height. The supervisors heard 3M hours of detailed testimony from engineers, pilots and aviation experts representing city, county, state and federal agencies before coming to their decision. Mental Hazard If the vote had been taken at the end of yesterday's hearing, the appeal appeared certain for defeat. A majority of the supervisors, including Jlr. Break, said they believed the 213-foot towers would create a "mental Hazard" for pilots using the Rediands Airport and said they were ready to deny the appeal. "Since the radio station and airport are in my district, I'm behind the biggest 8-ball you can imagine," Supervisor Break declared. He added, "I'm ahnost stymied. This is one ot the worst things I've had to face since I've been in office. My sympathies are di vided, but I believe the towers would be a hazard." Seek Another Site Supervisor Daniel D. Mikesell of Ontario said he would start work immediately to coorduiate efforts to find a less objectionable site for the towers. Initial investigation will apparently look into trading KCAL's 10- acres in the Santa Ana wash about three-fourths of a mile from the Rediands , Airport runway for equal property owned by the county approximately two miles to the north. The site approved by county planners has been vigorously opposed by Rediands city officials, local industry, the county and state aviation agencies and numerous private pilots. They maintain that the transmitter towers would create a definite hazard and that the airport's future development would be jeapordized because the towers would give the muncipal facility a "bad reputation." Conflict is Testimony A sidelight of the airport-radio station battle was the conflict in testimony by three Federal Aviation Agency officials and a representative from the California Division of Aeronautics. Harry Suffron on the FAA testified that the proposed towers would not violate the criteria for safety as established by the FAA. The FAA officials appeared as expert witnesses on behalf of the Southwest Broadcasting Company. Later, Arthur Kendall of the state aeronatuics agency testified that "the towers create a mental anxiety when a pilot's forward vision is obscured by inclimate AIRPORT PUBLICITY — Newspaper clippings publicizing the cit/$ activities in connection with Rediands Municipal Airport ore shown to county supervisors by Assistant City Manager R. P. Merrift, Jr., during public heoring yesterday on radio station KCAL's appeal concerning construction of three 213-foot transmitter towers northwest of the airport. "Development of the airport has been given a lot of fanfare," Merritt declored, (Doily Facts photo by Ron Kibby) weafer." Kendall appeared as an e.\pert witness for Rediands. Letters protesting the towers were received from Pure Gold Inc., Lockheed Propulsion company, San Bernardino County Industrial Commission, Rediands Chamber of Commerce, and flying poultry rancher Marshall Richardson. Letters supporting erection of the towers were received from the Lady of Guadaloupe Church and San Bernardino City Councilman Jesse Arias, who also made personal appearance. Technical Aspects Radio engineering consultant Floyd Hall outlined technical as pects of locating radio stations and Civil Engineer William G, Drydra produced testimony auned at discrediting claims that a hazard would be created. Prsenting the City of Red lands' case were Mayor Charles C. Parker, Assistant City Man ager R. P. Merritt, Jr., City Attorney Edward F. Taylor, and Airport Advisory Board chairman Maj. Gen. John Sessums (USAF-ret.). Richard Bates, chief pilot for Lockheed Propulsion company, told the supervisors the proposed towers would be a definite haz ard for transient pilots who arc not famihar with the Rediands Airport. Lockheed Propulsion, which uses the airport on a day and night schedule, objected to the towers "due to the increased hazards particularly to senior executives flying during periods of reduced visibility.
