A-:--INDEPENDENT U«l I IK*. OM.. Ttorv. fe». t, KM -L.A.C. SAYS:Deserved Honor * It is refreshing to know the people of Long Beach ·ire to honor Burton Chace at a luncheon next Tuesday In the Efts Club. We say "refreshing" because we ;Vnow d no public official with as long and honorable a ·record in, and to, this community. It is an opportunity ·|or the many of his friends to personally show their jlppreciation. / * ft * £ Long Beach is especially in debt to Burton Chace ior over 30 years of dedication to its interests. It was ISO years ago he was elected to the local Board of Edu- Iration --then to the City Council where he served as inayor--and then 10 yean ago to the County Board .of Supervisors. During all these years he has been out- .jtanding in that he has shown, a calm, conservative lind courageous attitude in dealing with many compii- .Vated and controversial issues. £ ; Some people have thought the humbleness of his jattitude was a sign of weakness. But, when the chips 4yerfc down and real courage was necessary, he Demonstrated his ability to art with a decisiveness ^hat shocked those who opposed him. There were ·hany such incidents when he served on the school ·loard and City Council. But it has been even more ·ipparent as a member of the county board. ;« * * * £ In my opinion, the outstanding example of this Courage was a few years ago when Los Angeles in- '.terests were seeking to place an auditorium and civic ·tenter in the middle of the downtown LA. area. It Varied as a ISO-million deal--to be paid by all county laxpayers. It soon grew to a JlOO-million deal All the ;l_ A. city newspapers were promoting it All the other Supervisors went along with the program. But Chace ·Jjlaced his political life at stake when he opposed the .Jlan as presented. ·J It was a long and hard fight but the plan was Defeated. The county taxpayers were saved from paying for something that was a promotion for downtown Los Angeles. A much less costly Music Center program is now under way in the area where Chace ·Insisted it should be placed. Over $12 million of private Donations have been provided for the new develop- ;hient. Even those who opposed Chace at the time, jiow agree he was right in the position he took. J * * * £ A look at oi5r own local Civic Center is evidence tf what Burton Chace has done for Long Beach. It is 'doubtful the County Courthouse would have been |ui!t here had it not been for his efforts. This is only ·jpne example of the way he protected our interest. lOnly this week over strong opposition, Chace and two' ;ef his colleagues forced through the plan providing that the county will pay to Long Beach a large share Jf the cost of the city's Health Dept. For years Long ^Jeach, Los Angeles, Pasadena and Vernon have main- gained their own department--but also paid taxes to _jupport the County Health Dept. from which they re- Reived no services. Under the leadership of Burton iChace this inequity is about to be ended with sub- 'Itantial tax saving to Long Beach taxpayers. .J Burton and his wife, Polly, have been honored in !ether cities and county areas he serves. But this is his Jiome where he has endeared himself to the people by ·his 30 years of dedication to public duties. It will be a ,)ieart-warmins luncheon for the home folk to show ^heir appreciation to these two people who have Iproven themselves worthy of every honor we can Jjestow upon them. Luncheon tickets are available at tjhe Chamber of Commerce.--LA.C. v rnt rece-.i»r1y rtfect tft con- Japan Bids for Trade in State SACRAMENTO (Jfi -- Gov. Brown promised Japanese Ambassador Ryuji Takeuchi Wednesday that he will ask t h e California Legislature next year "to take a look" at the state's "Buy America' The law requires public agencies to give preference to American-made goods in their purchases.
