4 -Saturday, July 20, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Solid fuel rocket third anniversary of Polaris missile For the United States Navy, today is a day of celebration. It was just three years ago, July 20; 1960. that the submarine, U.S.S. George Washington, sliced quietly through the seas off Cape Canaveral. The Polaris missile was aboard. The submarine submerged. Every thing was ready. And there was jubilation as the Polaris broke from beneath the surface enroute to an instrumented target area some 1,000 miles distant. Wasn't Just Luck And just to show it wasn't luck, the U.S.S. George Washington launched a second Polaris just as successfully only three hours later. These things were brought to mind locally today by CDR. Henry M W'addell Jr.. VSN, a resident of 27 N. Michigan in Redlands. He is the Na\y liaison officer (o the Ballistic Systems division at Norton. His job is to e.xchange technical information with the Air Force involving the Polaris and the several BSD missile programs. He reports that there are cur. rently nine Polaris submarines deployed and another four in commission. Of these, two have already completed all tests and will soon be deployed. This deployment is primarily in the Atlantic and Mediterranean at present. But this is only the beginning. For the Na^T has a goal of 41 submarines by 1967, each equipped with 16 nuclear-tipped Polaris missiles. CDR. Waddell said the Navy feels the goal is an attainable one, particularly since the entire Polaris weapons system was developed from drawing board to deterrent force in less than four years. Lockheed Maneges Lockheed Missiles and Space of Sunnyvale is the weapons systems mahager for the Polaris, a solid fuel rocket. This is a sister company to Lockheed Propulsion company of Redlands. Actually. CDR. Waddell noted that there are three families of Polaris missiles. The first was the 1200, then the 1500-nautica! mile missiles, both of which are operational. Ready for "sea duty" next year will be the new 2500-nautical mile Polaris which has just undergone six successful test firings at Cape Canaveral — although none from a submerged platform yet. Because of the importance the Navy and the nation attaches to the Polaris as a deterrent force in the world. Navy missile units everywhere received a telegram from Rear Adm. 1. J. Galantin, director of special projects, Wash' Ington. D.C., markfag the date. He pointed with pride to "The high standards of performance which have brought Polaris to its present status (and) earned the praise of our friends around the world and the respect of potential enemies. Assure Growth "3y maintaining these standards, you can assure the continued growth and effectiveness of the system and the resulting increase to national security . . ." CDR. Waddell, who has lived in Redlands since last August, is the only Navy officer attached to BSD but is one of five assigned to liaison duties with various Norton units. Because of his particular assignment, he spends much of his free time presenting programs to service clubs and other groups complete with color movies or slides on the Polaris missile. He and his wife, Jerry, have two daughters, Barbara, a junior at Redlands High, and Lydia, who wilt be in 7th grade at Cope this fall. Aerospace to add 400 in next 12 months Another 400 persons will be added to the San Bernardino personnel ranks of Aerospace corporation in the next 12 months, the firm announced yesterday. With these added persons, the total payroll of the space age corporatioo will be 1,000 in the San Bernardino area, according JANE FONDA FRANK SINATRA JR. HAYLEY MILLS Foreign investments tax decision a delicate one WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Kennedy's decision to defend the dollar by taxing foreign in vestment was shaped by varied economic and political considerations that made the final judg ment a delicate assignment. Treasury Department technicians built up the case that fi nally convinced Kennedy this strategy offered the best hope for making some progress in the balance of payments problem. But top policy makers added it to the President's package only at the last minute. Earlier in the week, there had been reports the President's mes sage would not propose any radically new devices for closing the payments gap. And the so-called capital tax proposal came as a complete surprise to a good many officials who thought they were up on the latest developments in this area. While reluctant to name names, administration sources indicated the idea came from the Treasury Department, but that it also was "worked over" by the President's close economic advisers. The proposed tax—which would be levied on foreign securities sold in this country—is designed to ease the nagging balance of payments deficit which reached S2.2 billion in 1962 and probably will be higher this year. Drzins Gold Stocks Such deficits result when U.S. citizens and the federal government spend more dollars overseas than foreigners spend in the United States. In past years, the deficit has caused a drain on the nation's gold stocks as foreign governments with dollar holdings cashed them in for gold. The President's program was directed toward one of the most troublesome aspects of the pay- • 123Coj<nSl [Mt .nr.3-433l Week Days, Cent, from 7 P.M. Sat. & Sun., Cent, from 2 P.M.

Kennedy noted that the outflow of long-term capital rose from $850 million in 1960 to $1.2 billion in 1962. He said this now was up to an annual rate of $1.5 billion. The administration previously had been pictured as reluctant to impose any restrictions on foreign investments. It began to retreat from this position, however, as the problem became more serious. "About the beginning of the year, the danger flags were fly ing," one source said, "and we knew something would have to be done before long." The taxation approach was believed the most palatable of several alternatives. One proposal, quickly discarded, would have had the United States "screen" loan applications and proposals to buy foreign securities. The idea was that the transaction would be disallowed if it aggravated the dollar deficit. Enforcement Difficult Administration sources said this approach- was turned down because of enforcement difficulties and because it would suggest an unwarranted interference in the decision-making process on the market place. Another more drastic possibility for stemming the flood of dollars from the U.S. capital market would be the raising of long-term interest rates to make them more competitive with overseas rates. This never received serious consideration by administration policy makers because of its political and economic implications The Kennedy administration firmly on record against raising long-term rates which would af. feet the consumer with the mort gate or personal loan. It could turn out to be a sensitive pock' etbook issue that would seriously handicap the Democrats in 1964. An increase in long-term inter est rates also was rejected be cause of fears that it might trip the delicate balance of economic factors that currently have gen erated a healthy rate of business expansion this year. School official charges Negroes discriminate LOS ANGELES (UPI)-A white school superintendent has accused the all-Negro WiJlowbrook School District board of trustees of discrimination in replacing him with a Negro. The claim was made Friday in a reinstatement suit filed by Or. Francis B. Martin, 50, in the court of Superior Judge Kenneth N. Chantry. Dr. Martin, through his attorney, told the jurist the superintendent had received a letter from board president John H. Kelly stating the post should be given to a Negro. The plaintiff was suspended from bis post last April 9 when he was accused of causing discord, insubordination and ridiculing board members. Lloyd D. Dickey, a Negro, was appointed acting superintendent. Dr. Martin's salary of $14,639 yearly has been paid regularly since his suspension. He was hired in 1960 on a four-year contract. Judge Chantry continued the proceedings until July 26 at the request of the beard's attorney, who said race was not an issue in the case. FAILS TO FOIL THEFT EDMOND, Okla.

The Czech news agency C.T.K. identified the prelates as Msgr. Josei^ Hlouch, 61-year-oId bishop of Ceska Budejovice (Budweis); Stepan Trochta, 58-year old bishop of Litomerice; and Msgr. Karel Otcenasek. 43-year.old administrator of Hradec Kralove and titular archbishop of Chersonese dl Creta Hlouch apparently was freed recently, C.TJC. said that Trochta and Otcenasek were freed in 1960 but this was the first known word of their release. The Vatican had listed the three bishops in its directory for the last few years with the notation "detained in an unknown place." The Czech news agency made no mention of the status of Prague Ardjbishop Josef Beran, the ranking Roman Catholic prelate in Czechoslovakia, who has been under detentiwi since 1949. The Czech news agency did not say whether the three released bishops would be allowed to re- sunne their ecclesiastical duties. A new generation of film, stage stars takes its bow By ERSKINE JOHNSON HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) "Are these our children?" The once-painful question for some film personalities has become a proud announcement — "These ARE our children" — about a new generation of famous- named young folk. Old headlines about the escapades of Hollywood's sons and daughters once had a ready explanation. Old dad was a hell- raiser himself and mother lived it up, loo. Hollywood was rich, sassy and irresponsible. "Like father, like son," the often-shocked public shrugged as juvenile authorities lamented lack of parental control. No longer rich and sassy now, Hollyv.'ood has matured and its new crop of well-behaved, serious- minded sons and daughters have accepted responsioility and are forging careers of their own. Looking back, it is difficult to recall a time when so many famous film juniors scored in the achievement column. Surprising, too, is the number who have followed in the show business footsteps of their parents. Judy Garland's daughter Liza was recently acclaimed in an off- Broadway revue. Jane Fonda, daughter of Henry, is one of the screen's brightest new stars. Her brother Peter is a fine actor. Darryl Zanuck's son Richard, 28, is the new production boss of the 20th Century-Fox studio. At MGM, Robert Walker Jr. and Jack Jones, son of Allan Jones and Irene Hervey, are on theu: way to stardom. Stardom already has been achieved by Liz Montgomery, daughter of Robert. She cut her acting teeth on television, then graduated to motion picture roles. Ingrid Bergman's Jenny Ann, 24, has decided to become an actress. Theater marquees and television credits flash the names of Ray Milland Jr.; Jody McCrea; son of Joel; Pat Wayne, son of John; Frank Sinatra Jr. and James MacArthur, son of Helen Hayes. Danny Thomas' daughter, Mario, has an acting career. Dorothy Lamour's son is a Hollywood agent, as is the son of David Niven. The late Lou Costello's daughter, Carol, just made her singmg debut. Harold Lloyd Jr. is acting, and so is Loretta Voung's daughter Judy Lewis. Jack Haley Jr., son of the comedian, is a television executive and Bronwyn Fitzsimmons. daughter of Maurreen O'Hara, has been starred on television shows. The daughters of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and the son of Claire Trevor are serious about acting careers. Andy McLaglen, the director of many top telefilm shows, is the son of the late Victor McLaglen. Switching between television and movies are Alan Hale Jr., J i m Mitchum, son of Bob; and Ronnie Bums, son of George and Gracie. Norman Powell, a television executive, is the son of the late Dick j Powell and Joan Blondell. Acting credits have been won by i Melinda Markey, daughter of Joan Bennett, and by John Payne's daughter Julie. Talented Hayley Mills is the daughter of veteran actor John Mills. For beauty and acting, too. there is the new "Miss Arizona" — Phyl lis Harris, daughter of Phil and Alice Faye. Sean Flynn, son of Errol, has been starred in several films. The "like father, like son" words came back to baunt John Barryraore Jr. a few years ago, but today his problems are behind him.

He said the planned growth of the San Bernardino operations will reduce support from the corporate offices in El Segundo to a few specialized tasks. As a result, he said the local operation will be "essentially autonomous" with the next year or so. The San Bernardino operation is now headquartered in recently completed facilities on the southwest comer of Tippecanoe and Mill, just across the street from Norton Air Force base. Aerospace came to tin's area from El Segundo a year ago in conjunction with the move of th« Air Force's Ballistic Systems division to Norton. Dr. Krause said he expects another 50 scientists and engineers will be transferred mto this area this summer from the EI Segundo offices while other personnel are being sought from throughout the nation. Aerospace is organized as a nonprofit corporation to provide technical management, engineering, planning and direction to the U. S. government, primarily the Air Force. Stocks fall to lowest level since April 3 Ralph Miller named to State realty board Ralph H. Miller of Upland, brother of Dr. Roland Miller of Redlands, has been appomted to the State Real Estate Commission by Gov. Edmund G. Brown. A former teacher for 12 years at Oiaffey hi^ school and college, he didn't obtain his real estate license until 1949 and didn't move into full time sales until 1954. Since then, he has been elected president of the Ontario Upland Board of Realtors and was state director of the California Real Estate association in 1962. He is also chairman of the Chaffey College Board of Trustees and is a past president of the Upland Savings and Loan association and the Upland Chamber of Commerce. JA31ES MacARTHUR LIZA MLVELLI BOBERT WALKER JR. NEW YORK (UPI) -A weary stock market finally surrendered to overwhelming odds this week. It fell to its lowest level since last April 3, but not before putting up a good fight Dow-Jones industrial average closed off 13.8 Ito 693.89 but some observers said that in the light of what it was up against they "wouldn't have been surprised if it was off 6.0" The market had little trouble absorbing the shock of the Federal Reserve Board's boost in the discount rate from 3 to 3'/i per cent announced after the close on Tuesday and the Securities & Exchange Commission's blast at the Securities Industry on Wednesday. The SEC asked that floor traders be abolished from both the New York and American Stock Exchange. Dow-Jones industrials reacted to both developments with a mild 2.40 drop in Wednesday. However, President Kennedy's request on Thursday that Congress grant a temporary new tax on American investment in foreign securities was more than the market could cope with. Stocks broke sharply on heavy volume during the last half hour of trading. The market, which had revived itself enough prior to the news to show a 1.20 gain at noon, closed off 3.82 in the senior average. The break chipped away $2.3 billion of the market's overall dollar volume. Foreign stocks were the worst hit by the tax request, designed to help stem the flow of U. S. capital abroad. Such issues as Royal Dutch, International Nickel, Aluminium, Lt and C^inadian Pacific lost as much as 2 apiece. As if all this weren't enough, it was announced after the close on Thursday that gold stocks were down an additional $50 million and that short interest had taken another drop. Lost, but not forgotten amid the week's confusion, was the fact that the rail labor dispute is yet to be settled. Stocks continued to drift lower on Friday with foreign issues once again setting the pace. The market closed with its eighth consecutive loss. Forecasts coming out of brokerage housK failed to be clouded by the week's action. "U the market can act this good under all these pressures think of what it might do with a little good news," one broker said. Most observers believe a settlement of the rail dispute at the end of July could provide that needed "bit" of good news. Until then, the experts say "we will see very little happen one way or the other." Trading for the week contracted to 17,271,487 shares from 1,859,815 in the previous week and compared with 15,962,490 in the similar 1962 period. Dow-Jones rails closed the week at 169.29 off 4.71; 15 Utilities 137.95 off 1.66; and 65 Stocks 250.53 off 5.06. Stand & Poor's 500 Stock Index closed at 68.35, off 1.29.
