4 - Wed., April 28, 1965 Redlands Daily facts Facts editor receives award for San Gorgonio campaign Frank E. Moore, editor of the Redlands Daily Facts, is among 17 newspapermen named today 'as winners of the Scripps-Howard Foundation's first Edward J. Meeman Conservation Awards for distinguished work in writing on conservation in 1964.. Mr. Moore is one of ten third place award recipients. He will receive a $100 cash prize. A series of eight editorials in opposition to opening the San Gorgonio Wild Area east of Redlands to commercial skiing won Mr. Moore the Conservation Award. The editorials were written between January and August of 1964 during the time ' the San Gorgonio issue was rag. ing in the United States Con- gress in connection with the National Wilderness Preservation Bill. The Daily Facts editor was nominated for the national award by members of the Facts news department. The letter of nomination stated, "It is generally conceded that Mr. Moore's editorials were an effective force in mobilizing local opposition and that their indluence may even have extended to the floor of the House of Representatives." First prize of $1,000 in the Scripps - Howard competition went to Stuart 0. Hale, outdoor writer of the Providence R. I. Journal and Evening Bulletin. Hale was cited for using"al- mpst every news, feature and editorial department of the paper in an appeal to the people of Rhode Island to approve a $5 million Green Acres bond issue." Conservation for the purposes ot the Meeman Awards is limi- ed to soil, water, forests, vegetation, wildlife, scenery and open space. The award is named in honor of Edward J. Meeman, Scripps-Howard conserva tion editor, Memphis. Tenn. Walker Stone, editor-in-chief of Scripps - Howard newspapers and a trustee of the Scripps- Howard Foundation, recently announced that response to the awards was so enthusiastic that the trustees have approved second competition. Cement strike feared as deadline nears Employes at cement plants in San Bernardino and Riverside counties today faced a full- fledged strike unless a union contract dispute is settled be•fore midnight Friday. Labor-management talks reportedly were "still a long way apart" between cement industry representatives and officials of the Cement. Lime and Gypsum Workers International Union, which authorized the walkout last month. Talks were scheduled to continue tomorrow and Friday in hopes of a settlement before ex• piration at midnight Friday of the current union contract. An alternative to settlement or strike would be an extension of Ihe contract. The dispute is centered around wage increases and fringe benefits. The walkout would affect sev: en cement plants in Southern California. Three of them are | in Victor Valley, where more! than 800 persons are employed. Other plants are Southwestern! Portland at Victorville, River-) side at Oro Grande and; Permanente, south of Lucerne Valley; and plants in Colton, Tehachapi and Riverside. Pilot walks 15 miles from crash landing : ELY, Nev.

Teacher pay increase gets board approval Free Speech girl to talk tonight in S.B. A University of California coed who belongs to the Free Speech Movement on the Berkeley campus will address a meet ing of the American Civil Liber ties Union (ACLU) in San Ber nardino's main library tonigbJ despite unofficial protests by th< San Bernardino Valley Young Republicans. Howard M. Rowe, c i t j librarian, said today there an "no indications" that the sched uled 8 p.m. talk by 20-year old Bettina Aptheker before t ACLU's Arrowhead c h a p t e 'will not occur." The Young Republicans ob jected to the "use of our tax supported library" for the tal in a press release. Rowe said he has received n< formal protest from the Youn Republicans, although the h brary has received a number o protest letters sent by indiv; duals. Meanwhile, an ACLU spokes man accused the Young Repub licans of "censorship" becaus of their stand. "If the Young Republicans who say they believe in indi vidual liberties, oppose he point of view," said Albert A Sanders of the ACLU, "the ought to have another meetin to present their viewpoint. We' be glad to attend." le bottom end of the scale Is more competitive" with other istricts than the top end. "We have a policy of trying o attract young competent eople instead of teachers with ears of experience whom we ould have to hire at a higher alary level," Dr. Heisner said. He also pointed out that here is a significantly greater ncrease at the top end of the cale than at the bottom. "The alary committee," he said, 'wants to make the maximum alaries more competitive than tiey are." Bill Gibson, assistant super- ntendent for business, said, 'We have projected this schedule into next year and we ex- >ect that this increase will cost us about $95,000. The schedule will be reviewed at the end of the calendar year, when the school district will lave a more accurate idea of Is income, with an eye to pos- ible additional increases. The board did not deal with ialaries of classified (non-teach- ng, non - administrative) em- ployes since a study of their >ay schedule being conducted >y the state personnel board is not yet complete. However, Gibson assured the board that the district can absorb the teacher pay hike without endangering possible increases for the classified workers. He added that the study probably will be completed by next week. Board member Charles R. Stultz expressed doubt about :he wisdom of passing a salary increase before the preliminary budget is prepared. However, President Robert E. Kahl pointed out that administrators need to proceed with recruiting of new teachers for the coming year. Mikeseil named to road board San Bernardino County Supervisor Daniel D. Mikeseil has been appointed to the board of directors of Californians for Modern Highways, it was announced b# state Sen. Randolph Collier.
