DAILY FACTS, Redlands, Calif. Wednesday, May 28,1975- A6 Brown's budget bills sent to floors of both houses Day in Sacramento ver- SACRAMENTO (UPI) - Competing sions of Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr's $11.3 billion "no nonsense" budget arrived on the floors of the Assembly and Senate today, with one carrying an additional $151 million for "pressing human needs." The Assembly Ways and Means Committee approved 12-5 a record $11.5 billion state budget Tuesday, which was $151 million more than Brown requested for the 1975-76 fiscal year. Two hours later the Senate Finance Committee endorsed its budget bill 10-fl, but members were unable to come up with a spending total. The measures were sent to the floors of both houses, but the final legislative budget version will come from an Assembly-Senate conference committee. It has to be on the governor's desk by June 15. Most of the $151 million added by Assembly budget writers was funneled into programs for the elderly, handicapped, and education for the young. "In conclusion this is a tight budget," said Assemblyman John Foran, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. "The Assembly augmentations have been added to meet only the most pressing human needs." Edwin Beach, a top aide in Brown's finance department, said he had "absolutely no idea" of the size of the budget approved by the Senate Finance Committee. Brown, who has the final say on the budget because of his power to veto spending items, has himself added $108 million since he first proposed the spending measure in January. The Senate committee voted to spend $77 million in state funds for higher education construction over Brown's objections. Beach noted that this would reduce the state's an­ ticipated surplus from $349 million to $272 million. "The surplus is going to be a deficit if we're not careful," warned Sen. Albert Rodda, D- Sacramento. The Assembly committee figured its additional spending still left "a net prudent" surplus of $240.2 million. Brown has projected a $349 million surplus at the end of the coming fiscal year. Bill Stall, Brown's press aide, said the governor would study the proposals, keeping in mind the need for a "prudent" surplus for "uncertain economic times." The Assembly committee, in announcing the increase, also said it had reduced by $61.2 million the amount of state money going to adult education. The cuts were achieved by clamping a lid on the enrollment in adult education classes in public high schools and community colleges. It also scuttled a Brown proposal for a $90 a month across-the-board pay increase for state employes in favor of its plan for an average 8.5 per cent increase, with a $400 a year bonus for low-paid state workers. The Senate committee reduced Medi-Cal appropriations by $22 million and added $524,593 for an 8.5 per cent pay increase for Senate employes. Other significant Assembly increases included: —$65.2 million for a 9 per cent cost-of-living increase for the state's 625,000 blind, aged, and disabled receiving state assistance. —$15.8 million for increased state aid to local mental health services. —$12.3 million for bilingual education programs, tripling the state's effort to help foreign language-speaking school children. —$35 million for the expansion of early childhood education programs.

Now You Know The cheetah, unlike all other cats, lacks sheaths for retracting its claws. Rain delays farm union HIDALGO, Tex. (UPI) - A heavy thundershower along the border today delayed an intensified effort by the United Farm Workers to organize field hands in the Rio Grande Valley. About 100 demonstrators again massed at the International Bridge to Reynosa, Mexico, to begin the day's activities. But Antonio Orendain, Texas organizer for the union headed by Cesar Chavez of California, dispersed the group when the rain hit. He said the activities would resume Thursday despite two court orders forbidding the UFW from interfering with the melon harvest in the Valley. 70-million-year-old fish dissected "It jeers at fish unfossiliied As intellectual snobs elite; Old Coelacanth, so unrevised, It doesn't know ifs obsolete." —Ogden Nash SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - A rare coelacanth, a fish scientists believed was extinct 70 million years ago, was dissected Tuesday in day-long surgery at San Francisco State University. "Who's got a vial for the bile?" shouted one scientist while another looked around for "a bag for the pancreas." The scientists were so excited that at one point the 66-pound fish was ac- cidentially dropped. In 1938 the first coelacanth known to scientists was found in the Indian Ocean. Since then 84 have been caught —but until this year not one had been kept in a state that allowed its fresh tissues to be examined to learn evolution's secrets. Two perfectly frozen specimens were given this spring by the president of Madagascar to an international expedition that went to Africa in search of the mysterious fish. One went to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla and the other was kept for dissection. The dissection will permit analysis of enzyme systems and blood proteins, among other things. Scientists say the coelacanth has remained unchanged since the days it moved around in primordial seas 370 million years ago. They'd like to know why its genes have remained stable while those of other animals have evolved. John McCosker, curator of the Steinhart Aquarium in Golden Gate Park, said knowledge gained from studying the fish could be used to solve major problems of human disease. For instance, why did man's genetic code become so changed that cancerous tumors could develop while the coelacanth's code remained immutable? Scientists all over the nation will soon receive samples taken from the fish, joining those who got first crack Tuesday. A piece of pancreas, some rectal gland and gonadal tissue went to Susan Brown, a Seattle biochemist and her husband, George, an associate professor of fisheries at the University of Washington. Charles Rand, a professor of comparative hematology at Long Island University, got a sample of blood, some liver and a slice of esophagus. After the marathon surgery, the scientists and a journalist had a chance to taste grilled coelacanth. The newsman reported "it hardly proved a gourmet's delight." Court rejects marijuana law JUNEAU, Alaska (UPI) The Alaska Supreme Court has declared unconstitutional a state law prohibiting possession of marijuana in one's home for personal use. Irwin Rabin, appealing his Dec. 11, 1972, District Court conviction at Anchorage, contended there was no legitimate state interest in his possession of marijuana for personal use in his home. He said it was discriminatory for the state to classify marijuana as a dangerous drug when alcohol and tobacco were not also so classified. The state Attorney General's office will decide later whether it will appeal. DAILY FACTS, Redlands, Calif. Wednesday, May 28. 1975- A7 Priest wins election with write-in votes By United Press International The Rev. Francis X. Lawlor, who gained national attention in his efforts to keep blacks out of a Southwest Chicago white enclave, won a stunning write- in victory in the city's 5th District congressional primary Tuesday. The 57-year old Roman Catholic priest and former Chicago alderman racked up 60 per cent of the vote in his write- in battle against William H.G. Toms, the only name appearing on the GOP ballot. In Kentucky, Gov. Julian Carroll won his state's gubernatorial nomination overwhelmingly. Lawlor will meet state Rep. John Fary, D-Chicago, in a July 8 special election to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Rep. John Kluczynski. In the GOP balloting, Lawlor garnered 3,077 votes to Toms' 2,100. Fary, running unopposed in the Democratic primary, took 41,341 votes in the heavily Democratic district. The tall, gaunt priest resigned from the City Council to seek the congressional seat and was nearly denied when the Chicago Board of Elections declared his nominating papers invalid because they failed to state clearly that he was running as a Republican. The board canceled the GOP primary, since Toms was the only person on the Republican ballot, but Lawlor went to court seeking an order to hold the election, saying he wished to run as a write-in. A three-judge federal panel ordered that the primary be held after two lower courts had upheld the Board of Elections decision to call of the election. Lawlor gained a national reputation in his organization of the Southwest Associated Block Clubs, a coalition of nearly 200 clubs which have battled to keep blacks out of the white Southwest Side neighborhood Lawlor has made his home and his life's work. Sato worsens TOKYO (UPI) Premier Eisaku — Former Sato, in a coma since he suffered a stroke in a Japanese restaurant May 19, has developed a high fever and the outlook is pessimstic, Dr. Yasushi Ueda said today. Ueda told newsmen Sato's blood pressure had decreased. Public Notice NOTICE INVITING BIDS 1. TIME OF OPENING Notice Is hereby given thai the Board of EducaUon of the Redlands Unified School District.

He had quite a task gathering fresh produce for his customers. During the summertime he bought from local farmers and was able lo handle an abundance of fruits and vegetables. After the autumn frost, his stand was sadly lacking in variety. Onions and potatoes carried over, of course, and oranges, apples and pumpkins provided bright spots, but his stock wasn't very "green." With the improvement of refrigerated transportation, the opening of winter-growing farmlands in the Southwest and Mexico, and Ihe introduction of controlled atmosphere storage, the supermarket has been able to constantly expand the selection on Ihe produce gondolas. Alpha Beta has had many "firsts" in its produce department. The "first of the season" and the finest in quality produce has always been our goal. Alpha Beta was the first major chain to air freight fresh papayas from Hawaii. Alpha Beta also became the leader in floral merchandising in the fifties. Cut and potted flowers were introduced lo supermarket shoppers along with the concept of mini-flower shops which carry a variety of decorative supplies. Through the years. Alpha Beta has led the way in the introduction of unusual fruits and vegetables lo the supermarket scene. Have you tried daikon or go bo root? What about kiwi fruit or kumquats? Jicama. that delightful sweet but low calorie root from Mexico, has made a big hit! And have you noticed our produce bags? Alpha Beta originated the concept of printing consumer information for selection, preparation, storage, nutritional helps, and recipes on these helpful storage bags. If you need further guidance in using more produce variety in your menus, pick up the small booklets by Sybil Henderson for sale in your produce department or contact us.

According to city traffic engineers, frequent rock throwing at the signs necessitates repairs, but they had no explanation for the backwards spelling of "walk." (UPI Telephoto) Administration protests Refugee competition for jobs opposed SACRAMENTO (UPI) — The Brown administration has urged the federal government to prevent Vietnamese refugees from competing for jobs with 655,000 unemployed American Vietnam war veterans. State Health and Welfare Secretary Mario Obledo Tuesday said state-conducted interviews of refugees at Camp Pendleton indicated that approximately 48,000 Vietnamese will settle in California. In a telegram to John Eisenhower, chairman of the President's Advisory Committee on Refugees, Obledo said: "America's 655,000 unemployed Vietnam veterans should not be forced to compete with refugees for scarce jobs." Obledo also charged State Department's sponsorship program will "eventually result in the majority of refugees receiving welfare assistance." A department spokesman said it was not known how many of refugees were employable, but that few interviewed had skills presently in demand. Obledo said interviews with 1,138 refugees indicated one per cent of refugee children speak even limited English and few refugees have substantial assets (97 per cent had fewer than $4,000). Meantime, Robert Carleson, the federal commissioner of welfare and former state director of social welfare in the Reagan administration, criticized Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. and Obledo for failing to welcome the refugees. Carleson said on the basis of news reports he read in Washington that Obledo was sowing fears that welfare rolls would be expanded by unemployed Vietnamese. Carleson conceded he did not know how many refugees would settle permanently in California, but said there were "probably more people on California welfare rolls now who are ineligible and could be removed than are the entire number of refugees who could ever possibly be expected to locate in California." He said in California "there are probably over 60,000 persons who are ineligible for Aid to Families with Dependent Children while the total number of refugees coming to this country may run from 120,000 to 130,000.'"' Workers forego pay- to keep hospital open NEW YORK (UPI) - Doctors and employes at Brooklyn Eye and Ear Hospital knew what they had to do Tuesday to keep the financially troubled hospital open. They decided to work without pay. The hospital is faced with a $1.2 million operating deficit and an immediate $100,000 cash need. "We're living from hand to mouth," said hospital president Dr. Abner Rosenberg. "What we need is about 15 angels to drop some gold bars on us." Kitchen workers did their best Monday by scraping together $17.11 to pay for the day's bread bill. And while the 110-bed facility's clinic was crowded to near capacity, about 100 doctors and staff members met in the cafeteria Tuesday and overwhelmingly agreed to keep the hospital running. The rest of the hospital's residents and employes were elsewhere —either performing surgery or tending to the sick in the wards —but there appeared to be near unanimity among the entire 300-member staff. "There's an absolutely wonderful rapport between em­ ployes, residents and the administration," said Dr. William Rand, the resident opthalmic surgeon, who is leading the ad hoc effort to solicit contributions and maintain staff morale. Many of the 85 attending physicians are considering donating their surgical fees for the week. Anesthesiologists are expected to take similar action. Rand said $8,000 in donations had already been made by hospital employes and area residents, and he fingered a pile of about 75 unopened letters sent since the facility's dollar crisis became general knowledge Friday. Nearly every letter contained a brief message of sympathy and a contribution ranging from $1 to $50. High-potency vitamins won't be classified as drugs WASHINGTON (UPI) - In response to pressure from Congress and consumers, the Food and Drug Administration has abandoned its long effort to classify high-potency vitamins as drugs. Instead, most will be classified as foods. The FDA Tuesday published revised regulations affecting the "supervitamins" and minerals —those with 150 per cent or more of the minimum daily requirement. The agency had contended since January, 1973, that such large dosages could be dangerous and were sometimes promoted by quacks as cure- alls. The drug classification would not automatically have put such vitamins on a prescription basis, but it would have placed them in a category where they would have been subject to review for safety and effectiveness and where they could have been listed as prescription products if the agency so decided. Under the new regulations, supervitamins will be classified and regulated as food, not as drugs. High- potency doses of vitamins A and D, which previously had been ruled potentially toxic,. will continue to be regulated as prescription drugs
