Turner said is not expected until sometime a f t e r the year 1990. j The main concern of the com-! mitk'c, made up of college, per-; sonnt 1 ]. a field representative of' ihe state Chancellor's office,! Krank H. Scheslcr, and state planning con.sultant, Donald P. Keay, were the possible areas of expansion into the city and connecting road links and freeway crossings in the eventual expansion. Also up for discussion, however, »as the more immediate matter of egress and ingress to the cot- lege in the area of lite present I7th street and freeway crossing, and the benefits of traffic io the campus as a result of the 4th street interchange ami eventual overhead at 7lh street, Emphasis was made early in the meeting that college representatives hncl no authority to make decisions on any matters, hut would make recommendations to state trustees. This sentiment was repeated by other goi'ern- mcntal representatives present, including Ncal Anderson, assistant district engineer with the State Division of Highways, and J. H. Anderson of the same District one office. Xeal Anderson said that studies were just beginning and the department is in the process of ob- t a i n i n g maps of the area between the 4th street project do be completed in 19G5) and the Mad River. "We have no preconceived idea ;is (o where the intersections might he." he said. He said if ihe project involved no relocation it would lake at least (wo years lor final plans to he developed and five to eight before any construction could begin. Officials seemed to favor an eventual overhead crossing at 17th street with some provision for fool t r a f t i c , with the interchange lo be located north of 17th. This will probably be included in tentative plans to be forwarded to trustees in .July. Amlercan said that ths Highway Department would not have anything developed on a plan by thai time, and the state would be working with both city and county officials, with the college working through the local governments in establishing a final plan. Koay, using maps with college facilities plainly marked, traced possible expansion plans. Some (if tentative proposals touched on were: i A road system around the peri- miter of the campus, perhaps to' become a reality in about five years, with planning to include tie-ins with other roads, some of which are now in existence. Either expanding the present sports area, made difficult because of the terrain, or eventually considering its complete movement to another location on city property, across the freeway north j of Arcata or perhaps in the tide-! land area south of Arcata to he reclaimed by the city with ils sanitary land fill. (This is a long- range, 12,000 enrollment plan.) J I mmediat e expansion in the! area bounded by Union and 14th I streets and behind the Baptist Church. i General expansion in the area: smith of Hth street In i l t h . 'Also! long range. 11 Turner, who at the beginning of the meeting, said if there was no feasible expansion, alternatives i would be limiting enrollment I'venuially. building another campus, or moving the present one. He said at the close of the .se.sskm for lunch, that a precedent has in't.'n el for coojwralion with all! ligi'iu'io.s concerned. He added (hat i much of the discussion was pure! conjecture. : City Attorney John Stokes, a l s n j acting city manager, saiil, "VouJ ;i re planning a part of the city (if Arcatn. fr»;Ier any facilitii-s ol the city at your disposal.

Trading was the heaviest in over a month during the churning, confused period which ended with many Wall Strcelers believing the $0 a ton price increase in the ic was wanted and believed to be in the Eureka area. He told police he is on proba- .ion from Keddirig on check charges. He said he has been (ravelin] around on his latest "spree," using the name "Lee Fuller" to sign checks. basic, melal might never take effect. Initially the market's response to the price boost announced by U. S. Steel Corp. was highly favorable, but the picture changed rapidly on reports that President Kennedy was furious with the steelmen. After Wednesday's close the President attacked the move as contrary to the national interest and mentioned possible antitrust action against the industry on monopoly and-or. price riggini charges. The stern speech produced Ihe widest selloff of the ,g year on Thursday. The decline was converted into a rally lale Friday when Inland and Kaiser Steel refused lo go along with the other steel companies and Bethlehem, Ihe na- lion's second largest producer, rescinded ils planned price boost. In Hie past a steel price increase has prestaged -a big rise in stock prices with such inflationary news sending investors chasing after common stocks a Ige against declining purchasing power of the U. S. dollar. However, in this instance the market declined under the threat ig of stern administration reprisals, and widespread belief that the industry was only courting additional, foreign competition here and shrinking markets overseas i, by raising prices. Other business news, more fa- vorable than not, was-shoved into the background · by steel developments. The whole market joined the decline with defen: electronics especially hard hit in the belief that higher steel prices would raise costs and reduce profits of companies working on fixed-price military contracts. Tobaccos lost further ground as the U..S. Public Health Service set up a committee to study the alleged smoking-cancer link, and drugs came under pressure stemming from presidential endorsement of the Kefauver committee's ·ecommendations for limited con- .rols "over the industry's practices and profits.
