Hurlbert reports music education here on a par Redlands public schools are on a par with other districts in the amount of music education they provide, but they may not be offering as much technical in- This is what the Rediands school Trustees were told Tuesday in a report by Kenneth M. Hurlbert, assistant superintendent for instruction. As a prelude to the report, members of the Crafton Elementary school choir, conducted by Ian H. Johnstone, sang to the board members and the standing-room-only audience. Music education in kindergarten and the elementary grades, Hurlbert said, includes 15 to 20 minutes per day in which the children sing, listen, play musical games or rhythm bands. In the junior both instrumental music are taught participate in high schools, and and choral at the senior high, band, orchestra and choirs are offered on an elective basis.

SAGE'S REDLANDS ris G. Durham provides instru mental instruction for more than 400 elementary and sec ondary students. The classroom teachers may also request the services o choral instructor Wilbur H. Sho waiter as a consultant. Hurlbert also said mosl schools have a choral group o; some kind like the Crafton choir. Schools have maintained the policy, which they hope to con tinue, Hurlbert said, of "trading off" among teachers to make the best use of those with spe cial backgrounds in mlsic. The administrator said the music program will be ex panded with the addition o some 900 students when the Mis sion and Fallsvale districts join the Redlands Unified district on July 1. Half of another teacher's time will be devoted to the instru mental program and more time will be given to the choral instruction, he explained. He also reported that the district has musical instruments for lending to students. "No stu dent who really wants to play an instrument is prevented from playing," he declared. Much public attention was fo cused on the music education program six years ago when i was curtailed after a ballot pro posal to increase school tax money was defeated. And in a public forum two weeks ago, then school boan candidate Dr. J..Richard Allan said he regretted the music cut back. Dr. Allard was elected April 20. The Buin Corporation con- inued its campaign to promote mblic support for its 30-acre 3ak-Ford commercial development this week by mailing SO etters to potential customers. Aimed at residents living with- n the service area of the proposed shopping center, the let- er urges citizens who favor he project to write or telephone :ity councilmen and express heir support. The City Council is scheduled o consider the Buin Corp. proposal on Tuesday. The city 1 a n n i n g Commission has recommended denial of the project, principally because of strong public opposition. Buin Corp. proposes to construct a service station, res- aurant, motel shopping center and a residential buffer on 30- acres situated on the hillside be- .ween the Redlands Freeway Muscoy man questioned in death A Muscoy man was being questioned today in the death of a state hospital mental patient whose body was brought to County Hospital yesterday in a rented trailer.

About People Dr. Gordon Bennett, 1417 Mira Monte, returned yesterday from San Francisco where he al tended the California State Den tal meeting at the Fairmont ho tel. Bum Corp. issues letter seeking public support and East Sunset drive North, east of Oak street. Last week, the Buin Corp. conducted a public meeting at the Redlands Country club in an effort to overcome public opposition. In this week's letter, the Buin Corp. states: "We have compiled in every detail with existing planning concepts and city ordinances. The Master Plan of the City specifies a shopping center in your area and it is our firm belief that our location is the best possible. "The land area we propose to use does not totally lend itself to residential estate home development because of its topography and its proximity to the existing highway and freeway. Our development can become a barrier to any further intrusion upon that which now exists and, in fact, by virtue of its design, a buffer and a transition zone." The letter also notes that the availability of service facilities close to residential areas is a part of twentieth century living. The Buin Corporation was formed in March 1956. The members are all Redlands men. Bert Marcum, Realtor, is president and Charles Ziilch, certified public accountant, is secretary-treasurer. Other members are: Clare H. Day, architect; Rex W. Cranmer, attorney; James H. Hicks, civil engineer; W. Eugene Malone, business man; Robert Kahl, business man, and A. Leslie Richardson, business manager. H. M. (Hank) Emerich, Realtor, owns a portion of the 30 acres proposed for development but is not a member of Buin Corp. at this time. PALM FROND BURNING — A layer of brown smoke drifted over north Redlands ecrly today as the City of Redlands took advantage of special permission from the county Air Pollution Control District to get rid of seven month's accumulation of palm fronds stacked up in the old city dump in the Santa Ana wash at the north end of Church street. The smoke, visible throughout much of the valley, caused some public concern. There were several telephone inquiries to the Facts Offices. City Manager R. P. Merritt, Jr., explained that this is the last time the city will be permitted to burn at the dump, unless soms sort- of county-wide burning program is worked out. He maintains that hauling palm tree debris to the county's land-fill disposal site is an unnecessary taxpayer expense and that burying the bulky fronds is rapidly using up the available land-fill disposal sites. (Daily Facts photo) City fo start annexation of La-Z-Boy plant site Annexation procedures to bring the La-Z-Boy Chair Company's west Redlands site within the city limits will be initiated Tuesday by the City Council, City Manager R. P. Merritt, Jr., reported today. The chair manufacturing firm, headquartered in Monroe, Mich., disclosed yesterday that it will start construction of a $350,000 assembly plant in Redlands by mid-summer. La-Z-Boy is purchasing a 9.1- acre site at the northwest corner of State street and Tennessee street, bordering the existing west city limits. Harley and Don Contractors of Anaheim, the.present owner of the plant site, has filed a formal request with the city manager's office for the city to commence annexation of the property. Tuesday, the Council will adopt a resolution of intent to annex the land. The. annexation proposal will then be reviewed and acted upon by the county Local Agency Formation Commission. Since the 9.1-acres is contiguous with the existing city boundary, Merritt foresees no obstacles to approval by the LAFC.
