Valley 96E2-M E. Lu Tuat AUGUST 9. 1966 2 i Issue Mrs. Margaret E. White, in a letter filed with the city clerk for board consideration, says she approves of the purpose of the surcharge city beau-tification but points out that power lines in the Linda Vista area are under ground. This, she says, was paid for "at great expense" by homeowners at the time of installation. "You would agree," she adds, "that it would be unfair to ask them to pay again." Mayor's View "I don't blame these people," Welin stated. "It seems unfair to put a surcharge on everyone in order to underground the remaining areas." He said he would favor repealing the surtax and to charge those residents directly benefiting from the improvement by means of an assessment district. Welin added that the entire project appears to be like "paying for a dead horse." He believes-power will be transmitted to homes and businesses by means other than wire in the not too distant future. Director Floyd Gwinn, who has long advocated underground utilities to beautify Pasadena and who led in support of the measure, admitted the problem raised by the Linda Vista residents was a new one. He said, however, that it does not appear practical to exclude certain areas in the building process. Noting that the average homeowner will pay only about 13 cents more a month, Gwinn said one should be willing to pay for crosstown beautifica-tion projects because they benefit the entire city. 9 SAN MARINO the logical corapanion oc VILLAGER, shirts & sweaters.

PASADENA PREFERRED Realtors Will Request Repeal of Bench Law GLENDALE Council-men will receive a request today by the Glendale Board of Realtors to rescind a recently-adopted ordinance banning advertising on benches placed in public right-of-way. The council meeting will start at 2 p.m. in City Hall. Allan G. Watson, president of the realtors board, said Monday he had sent the letter containing the request on behalf of his board- of directors. City to Be Urged to File Claim SIERRA MADRE The City Council will get a recommendation at 7:30 tonight from the city attorney that legal action be taken to claim about $5,000 from a firm of developers for debris clearance near a housing tract. Sierra Madre Estates, the developers, were billed by the city for work done by city crews in clearing mud and debris during heavy rainfalls last year. The firm, according to city officials, has not paid. City officials claim that the work should have been done by the firm. "We feel the prohibition of bench advertising is an infringement on free enter p r i s e," Watson saM. "We.also do not agree with the council that benches carrying advertising signs are unsightly." Inference of "unsightU-ness" of, many pf the publicly-used benches over the years was one reason why the council, by S-2 vote, passed the ordinance last June 21. Council men James Perkins, Allan F. Daily Jr. and Mayor William Howard Peters approved the ordinance with Warren Haverkamp and Herman Barnes voting against it Under terms of the ordinance, the ban does not immediately affect benches currently under contract by bench advertising firms. However, ' as contracts for advertising on each bench expires, the bench or benches, under the. city plan, would be replaced by city-owned benches without signs. Thus, the phasing-out plan permits most bench advertisers a final year to run out current contracts. Bench advertising firms also have protested the ordinance. iTVSWlM tal Waff Ttatjkt NM PAUL WOLF OLYMPIC SWIM SCHOOL 30 N. 9m Madre IM. SY 3-2704 f cme PASADMA J) r
