High school's cost up more than $1 million ' Our State Bureau SACRAMENTO--Inflation has increased the estimated cost of Irvine High School by more than a million dollars since last July, state officials have been told....-A - -. . · : , As'a;'result, the State Allocation. Board earlier this week :approved the addition^ $1,061,555 .for constructing, and equipping the "new school, to be located at 4371 Walnut Ave. in Irvine. David King, director of facilities planning and development for the Irvine Unified School District, said that the state last July had approved the expenditure of $8.8 million for the school. , But bids received for the project were so far over original estimates that the entire job was reevaluated, and the revised estimate is now $9.8Y million, he said. "That's an increase of 12 per cent in less than seven months," he said. . Construction of the school, designed to accommodate 1,800 pupils, is expected to start in mid- February 'and be completed by September 1976, King said. Board to decide Tuesday Disclosure law eyed in Orange Co. Morgan leading for endorsement By BOB HOUSER Political Editor Ron Morgan, candidate for Long Beach City Council, Seventh District, in the Feb. 18 special election, placed first in a pre- l i m i n a r y endorsemeht caucus of the Seventh Dist r i c t Campaign Support Committee. The c o m m i t t e e and other district registered voters cast endorsement ballots to select the top f o u r c a n d i d a t e s f r b m among 13 who appeared at the meeting. E i g h t other candidates did not appear. A w a r d i n g points to candidates on the basis of their talks and their answers to questions, the caucus gave Morgan 104 points, Edward A. Tuttle, 97, Lana Clarke Phelan, 68, and Elmer M. Share, 58. ^ The caucus and any Seventh District registered voters who so desire may ballot in the runoff session to select a single endorsee. That meeting is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday in Westminster Comm u n i t y P r e s b y t e r i a n Church, 2474 Pacific Ave, An earlier sto-ry erroneously reported the time as 7 p , m . . . Meanwhile, candidate ·Tuttle Thursday charged that candidate Jack Cox is avoiding public appear- ances, specifically failing to appear at two of the largest meetings for the candidates. Tuttle called it "disgusting" that'Cox.missed the m e e t i n g s in f a v o r of "dropping thousands of dollars i n t o a polished m e d i a campaign." He credited the public forums as means for residents to "establish a meaningful dialogue with candidates, determine their personal qualifications and establish t h e i r attitudes on various issues." RON MORGAN Ranked First Los Altos fees cot, directors replaced Leaders of dissident homeowners in'the 5,209- member Los Altos Association. achieved two of their three goals Thursday night with the election of a new board of directors and the announcement early in the evening by the deposed board that annual membership fees would be rolled back to their former $5 and ?10 levels. Elected at the association meeting held in the Millikan High School auditorium were Harvey Allen,.of 5931 Belice St, a 21-year-member of the Los Altos Association; Ed Green, of 2655 Vuelta Grande, spokesman for the new board and'a resident of the area for 3Vi years; Len Julian, of 1930 Conquista Ave., an association m e m b e r for 16 years; Doug Leafstedt, of 5430 El Parque,-a 7-year member; and Bonnie Seymour, of 1840 College Place, a resident of the area for 3'/2 years. The five, who were part of a seven-member team which coordinated the effort to roll back fees and replace what they described as a "do-nothing" b(iard, were nominated from the floor and were elected by overwhelming margins. ·They opposed current board members Wayne Roy, president; George Riggins J r . , vice presi- d e n t ; and directors W a y n e Gingerich and Steve Harvey. Realization of the third goal of the dissident group --self-determination of members, including notifying each homeowner of the rules and regulations of the organization and determining each tract's support or opposition to continued membership in the association--will take continued help from residents, Green said in his acceptance address. The deposed board fell into disfavor last month when .it raised the $5 annual fee paid by most homeowners to $7.50 and the $10 fee paid by the remaining minority in a more expensive neighborhood to $12 without a vote or poll of the membership. For many, the dues increase was the last straw. While some had opposed the association for years, saying they objected to the mandatory membership requirement or complaining that the organization was not responsive, it was not until the increase was announced that residents, led by Green and his seven "team captains," banded together to do away with both the new schedule and the old board.

' '· '" ChairmafT Ralph A. Diedrich said he will'offer the lengthy document because "voter confidence in the electoral process requires it..;" . ·,'-' : / His measure will pro v ,pose the creation of an Orange County Fair Camp a i g n Practices Commission with the same powers locally that the state commission has statewide. The county commission "can determine violations and may hold hearings to ascertain if certain violations have occurred," Die drich said. It then would be required to .make a f i n d i n g promptly and refer'its accusations, if any, to the district attorney. He said \that adequate e n f o r c e m e n t of all campaign-control laws by ,state, and county authorities is''Vital, and the ordinance calls for such action, His preamble holds that ."voter confidence in the electoral process" not only.requires full disclosure by candidates, committees and others in election campaigns, but that "major recipients of campaign .expenditures need to be identified in order for the voter to know the manner in which a campaign is furthered. The proposed control law calls for full accounting of all donations to all c a m p a i g n s , r e q u i r e s deposit of moneys receiv- ed in banks within the county, requires f u l l accounting and reporting procedures, and demands that campaign treasurers keep intact for at least three years, the financial records of each campaign. In turn, the Fair Campaign Practices Commission may move against any c a m p a i g n or campaign officials on its own initiative, or on sworn statements of private citizens. In addition it can hold h e a r i n g s on "reasonable cause" to believe t h a t campaign literature Or broadcasts contain "false or misleading statements." Violation of any provision of the proposed code calls for a $1,000 fine or six months in the county jail, or both the fine and imprisonment. Oiedrich's measure spells out what campaign "donations are considered to-be: "a payment, a forgiveness of a loan, a payment of a loan by a third ' party, or an enforceable promise to make a payment..." The t e r m "contribution" includes "the purchase of tickets for events such as dinners,, luncheons and similar fund-raising events; the c a n d i d a t e ' s own money or property used on behalf of his candida- cy; the granting of discounts or rebates not extended to the p u b l i c generally..." There is a provision which identifies as a contribution "an expenditure made at the behest of a candidate, committee or elected officer..." but jt apparently does not define c o n t r i b u t i o n s m a d e anonymously to a camp a i g n , or without the candidate's knowledge.
