TELEGRAPH HILL NEEDS REWIRING— Erosion from underground waters toppled this.apart­ ment building on San Francisco's famed Telegraph Hill. The foundations (left) are what's left after other buildings toppled 35 feet onto Lombard Street. Hilie" supported >—n.., ted program enacted by the 19G3 General Assembly. "The voters remembered the tax increases just as they overwhelmingly defeated Welsh—allied Democrat candidates for mayor last year and then registered their indignation over Welsh — particularly in Lake County — in the, primary election last May." Brown wrote. Attractive candidates who believe in a realistic Republican program are needed, according to Brown. "The Republican Party was founded as the great champion of the. Middle Class.'' Brown wrote. "It made no direct pitch for regional victories but went ou' to demonstrate- that at all levels of government it stood for constitutional law- and order, individual rights and human dignity, the free enterprise system, and the peace, progress and prosperity of the entire nation. With that truly national appeal we won many times. And we can do it again" More Taxes Coming More taxes are in store, according to Brown, who wrote: "Governor Welsh, in his lame- duck message to the 1985 Legislature, will propose another deficit budget-calling eventually for many millions more in new taxes. "This amount will be in addition to all of the new 1333 tax monies presently being collected by the state. If this budget passes—and this time there is. an all-Democrat legislative majority—'More Money Matt' may be able to impose another new tax increase on his successor by • 19C7." The snowstorm was an aftermath of the torrential floods that took at least 41 lives and caused damage estimated at [nearly S700 million in the five- state area of California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Nevada. A fleet of 50 helicopters — military and civilian—were engaged in the rescue operations in northern California. The overall picture in the flood area showed a staggering loss. California Gov. Edmund G. Brown said the loss in his state was conservatively estimated at S300 million. He declared 21 counties disaster areas and has asked the federal government for grain to feed starving livestock in Humboldt County. Estimate Damage Federal officials who toured Oregon Tuesday estimated the damage in that state at S315 million "at least." The figure included $55 million for roads, streets and bridges; S55 million in agricultural damage; S160 million for transportation and public utilities: and S11.3 million in residential damage. In Washington, flood damage was estimated at more than SI million in Columbia County, where 13 bridges .were completely destroyed. Gov. Albert D. Rossellini has asked President Johnson to declare the county and 13 others disaster areas. Gov. Robert E. Smylie of Idaho said a preliminary estimate of damage in his state was $5 million to public property. He said there was no esli : mate on private damage as iyet, but "it'll be extensive." 'Flood damage in Nevada was minor, but one of the disaster's 41 victims died there — an 11- year-old boy who drowned while City and county residents are^ ttem P^ n 2 *> save the life ° f reminded that local governmen-' s do °' tal and administrative offices will be closed for the New Year Holiday. The Courthouse will remain open this afternoon, but will be closed at 1:00 p.m. Thursday and remain closed until January -4.

Licenses For Bikes On Sale Here Saturday Tipton city police department reported today that bicycle licenses for 1965 would be available Saturday morning. January 2, at the city police station. The licenses will be olive green in color, to correspond with state plates, .with white figures and a border of while'. Chief Pratt advfcjed that a?I! bicycles ridden in the city -of Tipton and to school, 'would have to have license plates, which will cost 25c. Those who prefer a certain number may have same by calling at the police department as soon as possible and making the request in person. No phone call requests will be honored. Lights A Must The chief also pointed out that bicycles must have lights after dusk; those not having lights will be picked up by city police. They also request that when calling to purchase licenses, children and adults have the serial number and name of the bicycle, if possible. Citing the fact that several boys have been picked up for riding without lights in the past few days, Chief Pratt advised parents they should talk to the youngsters, pointing out that full cooperation regarding bicycle licenses is advisable if they are to become responsible citizens. Protect Police From Politics Hoover Urges Ball State Band To March At Inauguration WASHINGTON (UPI) —FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover today sharply criticized civilian police review boards as a step toward political domination of law enforcement. "Such panels represent a backward step for law enforcement toward ineptness and mediocrity," Hoover said. "Mote- over, one of the major weaknesses of these boards is their inherent political overtones." The target of Hoover's ire I was what he called "a questionable move" to establish civilian review boards in some cities to hear complaints against local law enforcement officers. The FBI chief made his com- j been busy collecting contribu ments in an article in the Jan-i 1 "" 15 f or expenses incidental to uary issue of the monthly FBI | th y „i"^ law enforcement bulletin. His INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — A toss of a coin brought victory to Ball State Teachers College and defeat to Indiana State College in a battle over which school band would represent, Hoosierland at the inaugural in Washington next month. . Democratic state chairman J. .Manfred Core flipped the coin when Indiana's efforts to send both bands to Washington turned out to be fruitless. State officials had expected that the bands from the state college campuses at Muncie and Terre Haute would be permitted to participate in the inaugural parade and other festivities. But the parade committee firmly ruled only one band from a state could appear. Student groups on both campuses have Closed For New Year CRITICAL CONDITION CEDARVILLE, Ind. (UPI)— Scott Eubank. 7, Cedarville, remained in critical condition today with first-degree burns suffered Tuesday when a two-gallon gasoline can exploded. A companion. Trenton Brindle, 7, was in less serious condition at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne. Allen County authorities said the explosion occurred behind the Brindle home when the boys, who had found some matches, held a lighted match over the gasoline can. article is a regular feature in the magazine, which is circulated to thousands of enforcement agencies throughout the nation. "A questionable move currently being championed in some localities is the establishment of civilian review boards," Hoover wrote. "To a large degree these panels would consist of appointed individuals who are generally inexperienced and uninformed in law enforcement and police administration." WEATHER Cloudy with occasional light rain or drizzle and turning colder today. Mostly cloudy and colder tonight. Thursday partly cloudy and a little colder. High temperature today falling from lower 50s this morning into,40s this afternoon. Low tonight lower 30s. High Thursday 40 to 47. TROUBLE ON TROUBLE—The flood wasn't enough trouble, so a gas leak blew this house to smithereens in Brlafwood, Ore. The root wad blown clear across the street. Indiana State had collected about half the estimated S10.200 cost of the trip and had scheduled a benefit basketball game Jan. 15 to raise more. Core said that plans to send both bands started last October when the musicians provided music for a campaign appearance on Indianapolis Monument Circle by President Johnson. "When • the President spoke here, he went over and shook hands with both bands and said 'You all come'> to the inauguration," Core said. "We assumed we could substitute one of the bands for a state or territory which couldn't send one. We'd had trouble getting a band for the President's speech and these t'wo bands came when we asked, and we felt that we owed it to them, even though we were told wc could have only one float, one governor's car, one marching unit and one band. "We got an order saying the state chairman would make the decision and we would be held Ko just that. I said I couldn't accept that, and I went clear tc the White House, beating, crying and hollering, and so did the senators and the governor. "I got an invitation from the Virgin Islands to substitute one of our bands for theirs and we went to work on that. Then I think Hawaii offered'to take one of our bands, too. But the President had said he wanted the parade over sooner than last time. So the parade chairman called me night before last and said no substitutions would be permitted under any circumstances. "So yesterday I said we might as well get this over with. First we called the band director at Ball State and he was in Iowa, and we called him there and he agreed to split his band so that part of Ball State and part of Indiana State bands could go. "But when I called Indiana State, the band director said it would be impossible for him to split his band and that he would not divide the honors. So the only thing left was to flip a coin." Son of Missing N. Y. Hoodlum TUCSON, Ariz. (UPI) — Federal agents today hoped they might trace missing Mafia king pin Joseph Bonanno through his son, Salvatore (Bill) Bonanno. •Police swooped down on young Bonanno Tuesday as he sat in a motel barber's chair in Tucson, Ariz.

Bond had been s-et earlier by New York federal Judge Harold Tv- ler. When Bonanno wis "nable to post bail, he wv.s taken to •Pima County Jail. Tucson attorney • Joseph Soble, -vacationing in the East, was returning here to arrange bail today for Bonanno.
