4 - Thars, July 18, HB Bedlands Daily forts Fishing lake by 1972 Plans revealed for Yucaipa regional park Lang range plans for an 850- acre regional park, complete •vdth a fidung labe, in an area between central Yucaipa and the Crafton Hills were tmveiled yesterday afternoon at the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water district board session. The park -would be a combined developinent of the Yucaipa Recreation district, the Municipal Water district and San Bernardino county, Peter Dangermond, member of the county planning department staff, presented the tentative pro- jjosal and asked for cooperation from the Municipal district in the development. The lake, which would be the focal point of the park, would be on Municipal property and would be created as a reservoir when Feather River water arrives. But not untU 1972. Mr. Dangermond said it is envisioned that the lake would have recreational value (fishing but probably not boating or sim- ming), and that development around it would thus be eligible for state fuiids under the Davis- Grunsky act. "The tremendous potential cl this park site should be tapped. We strongly urge you to help us do three things," Mr. Dangermond emphasized. The three items, all approved by the board on motion of Maurice Shumaker, were: 1—Seek state funds for development of the park under the Davis-Grunsky act which could amount to $400,000 or more. 2—The Municipal district will continue its announced plan to develop the reser^'oir at that site. 3 — Study the possibility of changing the location of the spill way to enhance recreational use of the reservoir (lake.)

Three American soldiers killed near Saigon SAIGON (UPD—Three Ameri can soldiers, two of them officers, were killed early today in a Com munist guerilla ambush near Loc Ninh, 75 miles northwest of Saigon, a U.S. military spokesman said. The spokesman said the victims Were a sergeant and two captains, all members of the U.S. Special Force in South Viet Nam. The new deaths raised to 98 the number of American military personnel killed in South Viet Nam. The spokesman said that three Vietnamese special forces men traveling with the Americans were wounded in the ambush. One of them was said to be in critical condition. The spokesman said the men were dri\Tng along a road in Binh Long Province near the Cambodian border in a small convoy of two jeeps and a 2',i ton truck caro'ing medical supplies when Communist Viet Cong guerrillas sprang an ambush from a jungle cover along the road. The spokesman said escorl troops riding in the truck behind the jeeps opened fire and drove the guerrillas from the ambush site. The area of the ambush is a favorite zone of operations for Communist guerillas who can stage hit-and-run raids and then flee across the border into Cambodia. . The spokesman said the Americans killed in the ambush apparently belonged to a special forces team training and arming peasants in the area as a counter- guerrilla force. Only Tuesday Communist Viet Cong troops wounded 14 U.S. soldiers of a special forces unit in a mortar attack on a camp south of Saigon.

Newspaper photographers and reporters were ready. TV lights were on and the camera ready. Mrs. Lucille Robinson's fourth graders in the U.R. summer demonstration school program at Franklin school were seated around the table where a telephone and tape recorder were placed. Promptly at 11 a.m. this mom- mg the telephone rang and Mrs. Robinson was notified that a prearranged call to Japan was be- png completed. "Hello! This is Mike Garvey calling from Mrs. Robinson's class in Rediands, Olifornia. What time is it?", was the first question put to Jun Ichi Nogaki .principal of a woman's college in Nishinomiya, Hyogu - Ken, near Osaka. So began another in a series of special telephone contacts being used for the first time as added tools in learning in the summer program. The Califoniia Water and Telephone Company are mak ing this possible by arranging and financing the calls. Mike didn't get an answer to his first question. The connection was not clear on the other end of the line and Mr.Nogald was hav' ing trouble. So Mike tried again, ".'^re you sleepy?", he asked, aware through the class' current study of the country of the time differential. In words, unfortunately not un derstandable at this end, (the Telephone Company had also in stalled amplifying equipment so that both sides of the conversation could be heard), the Japanese educator made it clear, however, that he was unable to hear the question. "Is Nishinomiya a fishmg village of a city?", Mike tried again. Mrs. Robmson took the phone and had a little better luck estab- lishuig the fact that he was speaking to children in her class and that another youngster would ask a question. It was Cathy Laycook's turn and she asked ,"What is your home like. Is it Western style or Japanese"? A later playback revealed that Mr. Nogaki probably understood this question and gave an answer, but it was not possible to get the inflections of his words. Other questions, such as one concerning the possibility of Mr. Nogaki's ever having \nsited Hino, Rediands' Sister City where also lost at the other end of the line, and finally Mike was given the privilege of sayuig "Sayonara" when the ten minutes alloted to the call were up. But far from being a disappointment, these were an exciting ten minutes for the fourth- graders for whom this direct contact with a far-away land was somethmg real and they could not help but capture the atmosphere it created. Also, it seemed evident that in one point of her conversation, Mrs. Robinson got the point across that the children would welcome "pen pals" and that Mr. Nogaki agreed to send some prospective names. In addition to the intern teachers, curriculum workers and other teachers taking refresher courses present, there was Telephone Company representatives, J. C. Mercer, commercial supervisor, and Fred Frost, customer service representative for the Rediands office, and Dr. Kenneth C. Hansel of San Diego who originated this type of program m his school and who is a visituig REDUNDS CALLING NISHINOMIYA - Mrs. Lucille Robinson tells Jun Ichi Nogaki, principal of 0 woman's college in Japan, that he will be speaking to a few of her students during a ]0-minule coll pre-arranged with the Japanese educator. The youngsters ore in Mrs. Robinson's fourth grade class of the summer demonstration school directed by the University of Rediands. The conversation was to be a climax to their study of Japan. It was one of several of such direct contact calls being made possible by the California Water and Telephone Company who are not only making arrangements for the colls, but are also footing the bill. (Facts photo by C. J. Kenison) Bulgarians visit U.S. plastic exhibit VIENNA, Austria (UPD—Jlore than 50,000 Bulgarians visited an American plastics exhibit in Sofia on its opening day, U.S. diplomatic sources said Wednesday. The exhibition was first shown in Russia in 1961 and later was put on display in Romania and Yugoslavia. It opened in Sofia on July 6. "HELLO, CAN YOU HEAR ME?" - These were familiar words this morning as Mrs. Robinson attempted to establish better contact with Mr. Nogaki (who was a visitor to Rediands five yeors ogo) during the trons-ocean call to Japan. Mr. Nogaki, who speaks English, could not understand the children's prearranged questions due to the reception on his end of the wire, but the thrill they got from such a person-to-person visit was real for the children. member of the suntuner program faculty in Rediands. Better luck was realized with a call made a half hour later to the Brazilian Consulate in Los Angeles, arranged for Denton Palmer's sbtth grade class in connection with their study of Brazil. I About People Edward E. Biggs, son of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene E. Biggs, 632 South Buena Vista street, attained a high scholastic achievement at San Francisco State College during the spring semester and is named on the Dean's Honors List. Several students took turns in asking questions of Miss Ruth Entilla in that office whose answers were returned firm and clear.
