4 - Wed., July 17, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Brown, Judson and Jacobs Founder triumvirate to he honored by Diamond Jubilee Formal recognition of the pioneer "triumvirate" which founded Redlands will be a special feature of the Diamond Jubilee celebration in November. The Jewish Mens Club of Redlands announced today it has received permission to mount a bronze plaque on the base of the Liberty Flag pole honoring the three men who founded the city. Jack Levine. president of the Jewish Mens Club, stated that the Diamond Jubilee Committe has agreed to make the presentation and unveiling of the commemorative plaque a Jubilee event. The ceremony will take place on November 7 at the flag pole, now located in front of City Hall. The founding triumvirate in­ cludes Frank E. Brown, a Connecticut Yankee engineer; Edward G. Judson, a New York stock broker; and Lewis Jacobs, a Jewish merchant-banker. Both of Redlands' historians. Dr. L. E. Nelson of the University of Redlands and Mrs. George S. (Edith) Hinckley, have substantiated that the three men to be honored are the "founding fathers." Jlr. Levine explained that the actual plaque will be 14 by 2-i inches with raised lettering and ornaments. "We believe it will be of a quality in which the city can take pride," he stated. The ornaments will include two oranges. "Use of the orange em­ blazoned on the plaque recognizes the orange industry as the initial force in the founding of Relands," Mr. Levine noted. Dr. Nelson's recently published book, "Only One Redlands," relates the founding of Redlands and the respective roles play by Brown, Judson and Jacobs. Wording of the plaque and its location are based on a quotation from Dr. Nelson's book. The plaque will include this statement: "By this triumvirate was Bed- lands founded." The quotation is credited to J. S. Edwards speaking before the Fortnightly Club in 1929. In that speech, Edwards suggested that a monument honoring the three men be erected at the Triangle. City studies street paving requirement City officials are foymg with an ordinance which would require developers to complete improve ments on e.\isting streets before a building permit is issued. The City Council last night heard a brief report on the pro- proposed ordinance from Public Works Director John Shone. It is slated for a formal introduction ne.vt month. Decalred purpose of the measure is to speed up work on existing streets in connection with the construction of subdivisions and other large-scale projects requiring street improvements. City Councilman Robert Wagner termed the proposed law a "good thing." He maintained that when developers allow existing streets to remain torn up for long periods of time they "are imposing a real problem on the people who use the streets regularly." Shone stated that before the ordinance is presented to the Council for action, he wants to discuss it with some of the major Harris to aid workshop with talk on Africa Harold C. Harris, Redlands merchant, will serve as a resource person for the University of Redlands workshop "The World's Emerging Nations" Thursday. Recently returned from two months in South Africa, Mr. Harris will discuss and present his observations to the class which is taught by Dr. Stanley L. Combs, professor of education, and Patrick L. Egan, department chairman, Eisenhower High School, Bi- alto. Dr. John D. Goodman, associate professor of biology, who was awarded a Fulbright Foundation grant for his studies on deadly parasitic disease, shistosomiasis, common in Africa, also visits the class on July 17. Dr. Combs reports that the workshop offered for the first time Oils summer, has been enriched thus far by 10 resource persons including exchange students, AID officials from the Far East and author E. R. Braithwaite, UNESCO official. OAS asks end of abuses in Haiti WASHINGTON (UPI) — The council of the Organization of American States (OAS) has asked the Haitian regime of President Francois Duvalier to end civil rights abuses and grant safe-conduct passes to political refugees in the republic.

"We want to find out what problems, if any it will create for the developer," he said. The public works director pointed to the disrupted situation on Oak street and Franklin avenue as an example of the hardship placed on local motorists when streets are disrupted for several weeks. He added quickly, however, that the delay on Oak street was the result of a paving contractors strike and that the prime contractors were not to blame. "The ordinance would require contractors to install sewer lines and water mains and to complete curb construction and street paV' ing before a permit would be issued to start work on struct' ures,' Shone explained. He pointed out that this requirement would apply only to existing city streets. "Traffic could (hen flow normally through the area during the period of construction," he said. Shone stated that in the past developers have dug up the streets to install sewer lines, and then some time later they disrupted the street again to install water mains. "All this work should be completed at about the same time," he declared. Developers would not be required to install driveway pads or sidewalks before construction started. Shone noted that heavy equipment entering and leaving the area would crack the concrete slabs. Power plant hearing opens in Los Angeles LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Public hearings on a proposed $32-million nuclear power plant at Camp Pendleton opened here today before the California Public Utilities Commission. The Puc previously heard testi mony on the project on June U in San Ciemente. In Washington Tuesday, the Sen ate completed congressional action on a bill to grant two private utilities use of camp land for con struction of the plant which would generate enough power to supply the electrical needs of a city of a half million people. The Senate agreed to House amendments to the bill introduced by Sen. Clair Engle, D-Calif., and sent it to the White House. The bill would authorize the Navy to allow use of some 90 acres on the sprawling Marine base by Southern California Edison Co. and San Diego Gas and Electric Co. If all necessary app .i -ovals are granted, site preparation was expected to be started in October. The plant was expected to go into commercial operation by Jan. 1, 1967.

Early Redlands Film Festival Proposed Editor Facts: How exciting and appropriate it would be during this falls Diamond Jubilee Celebration to show some of the movies which have been made in Redlands by local, Hollywood, and New York companies. It would certainly give many thousands of us our first opportunity to not only see Redlands as it was but also to see some of the splendid mansions which have been long gone. While travelogues and amateur movies of pre World War 11 scenic Redlands would alone be of great interest. Dr. Nelson's deh'ghtful "Only One Redlands" contains descriptions of at least a dozen movies (all filmed m Redlands by as many different companies) anyone of which would have tremendous interest and surely pack an auditorium night after night. If the outstanding early homes tour is any criteria at all, an Early Redlands Film Festival would easily be one of the real highlights and most popular events of the entire Diamond Jubilee year!

Drivers warned about portable radios in cars California Highway Patrol Commissioner Bradford M. Crittenden this week cautioned drivers against placing portable radios on the dashboard in a position which obstructs or reduces vision through the windshield. He said the Patrol Officers had noted a growing tendency to prop radios up on vehicle dashboards. 'The law states that no object or material shall be placed in or upon a vehicle in a way wWcfa ob­ structs or reduces the driver's clear view through the wmdshild, excepting required or permitted equipment and adjustable sunvis- ors which are not attached to the glass. "The prohibition extends to any article or material which would reduce or obstruct the driver's vision, including banging oma- mCTts." The commissioner pointed out that the law also prohibits the placement of any sign, sticker or non-transparent material on the windshield except within a seven- inch square in the lower comer farthest removed from the driver. Paving plant back in operation SELL IT TOMORROW With an inexpensive aassified Ad The Matich paving materials plant on Alabama street was back m operation this morning, along with 97 others in 11 southland counties, after an eight-day walkout by employes ended today. The decision to return to work was announced yesterday after adoption of a tentative agreement between representatives of employers and AFL-CIO Operating Engmeers Union Local 12, according to UPI. The agreement, in the form of an amendment to the master contract covering about 600 union members, is scheduled for submission to members by Aug. 4. The walkout developed as a result of union efforts to assure adequate manpower on crews 'faced with replacement by automation or on jobs regarded as potentially dangerous. Because of the short duration of the walkout, no particular difficulty arose in Redlands, according to Jack Shefchik, city street superintendent. The only major street paving project scheduled this week was Oak street from Redlands boulevard to Franklin. Mr. Shefchik said the paving was to have been done yesterday but will now be delayed several days. The only other inconvenience to the city occurred when a few patching projects were done with temporary materials.
