To make RHS mall possible F@rn - Redlands Blvd. redesign in budget Realignment of the Fern-Redlands boulevard intersection to make possible a Redlands High school campus mall is included in 1965-66 gas tax projects recommended by John R. Shone, pubUc works director. Shone will submit a list of eight proposed projects totalling $144,800 for City Council approval tomorrow. The projects would be financed principally from next year's state gasoline tax refunds. The Fcrn-Redlands boulevard improvement would require a $15,300 allocation. The project calls for the closure of Fern avenue through the Redlands High campus and the reahgn- ment of Church street into Redlands boulevard to create a! right-angle intersection. Both the City Council and the School Board have agreed to share the costs of the improvement. The School District will pay for the widening of Church street northward to Citrus. The city has previously budgeted another $15,000 in gas tax monies for the installation of a traffic signal at the Fern-Redlands blvd. intersection. Other projects Shone has proposed for 1965-66 are: —Realign intersection of Cyress avenue and Terracina boulevard to eliminate the sharp, blind curve, $40,000. —Widen Terracine boulevard from Fern avenue northward in front of Redlands Community Hospital, $8,000. This work is part of city-hospital cost sharing agreement reached earlier this year in connection with hospital expansion program. —Installation of traffic signals and realign intersection at Ford and Oak streets, $15,000. Smce another $15,000 in costs is to be paid by the Buin Corp., this project may be delayed if the corporation's proposed 30-acre development at the intersection is denied. —Widen Fifth avenue and'con­ struct roadway between Dear born street and Highland avenue, $6,000. This project is in conjunction with development of Moore Junior High school. —Install railijpad crossing signal on Grove street at the Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe railroad tracks, $7,500. —Widen Citrus avenue eastward from University street to freeway overpass, 88,000. —Purchase of right-of-way for the Ford street extension from Garden Hill to Garden street, $30,000.

Wallace and Family. In downtown Redlands Black Muslim members sell papers Saturday Redlands shoppers were accosted Saturday by members of the Black Muslim cult distributing copies of the sect's official newspaper, Muhammad Speaks. A poUce department spokesman said six men who identified themselves as Muslims earlier cleared the streetside newspaper sales with authorities. One of the well-dressed Ne- roes, who appeared to be in his late teens, said the group was "from Los Angeles." In attempting to sell the newspaper to a Facts reporter, the Muslim said "It's designed for Negroes, but it's very educational for everybody." The 24-page tabloid newspaper carried militant articles on the progress of newly independent .Mrican nations and alleged grievances of Negroes in the United States. The back page was devoted to a color picture of Elijah Muhammad, the Muslim Leader and an outline of the Muslims' proposed solution to racial conflict. A major tenet of the program, the paper declared, is for "our people in America whose parents or grandparents were descendents from slaves, to be allowed to establish a separate state or territory of their own- either on this continent or elsewhere. "We believe that our former slave masters are obligated to provide this land" and to "main tain and supply our needs in this territory for the next 20 to 25 years—until we are able to produce and supply our own needs." HeadUnes in the paper included "Nkrumah Answers: Why the West Groans as Ghana Grows," "Why Muhammad Is Destined to Defeat Christianity," and "Black Women in White Jails." A picture showed Muhammad Ali {formerly Cassius Clay) preparing for his next fight and an ad called for new members in the Muhammad AU Fan club. Police said the sales of the newspaper were regulated by the same city ordinance which allows distribution of religious tracts or printed matter from non-profit organizations. No incidents were reported throughout the day. Reactions of pedestrians approached by the Muslims varied from an uneasy "No, thank you," to frank curiosity about the cult and conversations with the men. iuffi hearing to lead off busy day for Councilmen Action on the Bum Corp.'s proposed 30-acre project at the Oak-Ford intersection will lead off a busy day for City Councilmen tomorrow. The Council will take up tjje city Planning Commission's recommendation to deny the Bum Corp. proposal at 3 p.m. when it considers other planning matters. At 7 p.m. the Council will reconvene to handle other agenda items. Among these are: -Receive construction bids for the off-site improvements required in connection with the 54-unit, three-story apartment building at Cypress avenue and East Redlands boulevard. The Southern California Mortgage and Loan Corp. of San Bernardino is foreclosing on the construction project and has given the city $61,000 to comlete public improvements. —Public hearing on rezonir.g 24-acres at Redlands Municipal Airport from agricultural to airport district. —Consider adoption of an agreement to participate in the Los Angeles Regional Transportation Study. —Take action on request by Westgate-California Corp. for installation of directional signs in Fifth street mall at Redlands Plaza development. —Request from city manager for authorization to purchase tax delinquent triangular-shaped parcel at the southeast corner of Sylvan boulevard and Lincoln street. Parcel is needed for pos sible street purposes and can be acquired for $8.39 delinquent taxes plus about $25 advertising costs. —A d 0 p t resolution declaring city's intent to annex 9.1-acre site on Tennessee street and West State street in conjunction with the La-Z-Boy Chair company development. —Request from city manager for authorization to obtain bids for demolition of old buildings at Highland avenue pumping plant. —Request for $250 appropria tion for construction of tables at Texonia Park for use in summer recreation program. —Board of Trustees of Smiley Library request that $6,000 of Library surplus be used to in stall shelving in Library base^ ment. —Authorization to expend $16,' 500 from current gas tax mon ies for emergency reconstruction of University street from Citrus to Cypress avenue. Supervisors considering boot, ski restrictions Announcemenf of Services SAUERBERG, Fred J. Services Pending Valley Chapel Loma Linda Emmerson Mortuaries and Chapels 703 BROOKSIDE AVE. 793-2441 Sharp restrictions on boatingj throughout San Bernardino County and water skiing at Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake will be the subject of a public hearing scheduled by county supervisors for May 17. A proposed county ordinance aimed at making boating and water skiing safer will be discussed at the 2 p.m. hearing. Among the proposed regulations are provisions which would: —Prohibit persons under 14 years of age from operating a ski tow boat. —Require an observer at least 12 years of age in ski boats who would raise a yellow flag to indicate a fallen skier. —Require rear-view mirrors on ski boats. —Prohibit water skiing at Lake Arrowhead between sunset and sunrise and between sunset and 11 a.m. at Big Bear Lake. Fourteen would be the minimum age for operating a boat with more than 10 horsepower or a spead of more than 12 m.p.h. and only if the operator is accompanied by an adult. Sixteen would be the minimum age rive rescued from Lake Crowley Five Redlands residents and a West Los Angeles woman reportedly were rescued from a boat which sank on wind- whipped Lake Crowley Saturday. The five from Redlands were Dr. Roland K. .Miller and Dr. Forrest Robinson, both dentists, Robinson's son Garry, 14, and Mabel Johnson and her daughter Janet, 16. Also in the party was Edith Warren of West Los Angeles. Newspaper reports credited unidentified occupants of a nearby boat with rescuing the passengers of the 17-ft. cabin cruiser when its anchor chain became tangled in the propel- lors. No injuries were reported. Relatives of members of the party said they were enroute home today from the lake northwest of Bishop. Besides the sinking of the Redlands boat, some two dozen other craft were swamped Saturday by winds up to 70 m.p.h. which v.^hipped up 4-ft. waves. The winds caught by surprise the 2,000 boats on the lake for the opening of the trout season. A 29-year-old Pomona man, Bert Havre, is still missmg after the boat he was fishing from overturned in the stormy wind. By Sunday afternoon the winds had subsided to 15-25 m.p.h. and the lake was again opened for fishing. Sounded like a fire buf if wasn'f A mid-day fire scare at Sage's shopping center apparently was inadvertently caused by a telephone repair crew, the Fire department reported. Two fire engines and a ladder truck were dispatched to Sage's at 12:29 p.m. when the automatic alarm indicating a fire at the shopping center went off at the Fire station. Firemen, who could fine no trace of a fire, determined that the automatic alarm probably was accidently tripped by telephone repairmen who were working at Sage's. Fullgrabe hurt in accident on motorcycle A 21-year-old Redlands man was seriously injured yesterday in a collision between his lightweight motorcycle and a car in the 1200 block of Orange street, police reported. The victim, Herman Fullgrabe Jr., 1332 Clay street, was thrown from his motorcycle in the accident and suffered a fractured right hand and abrasions. He was treated at Community Hospital. Pohce said the accident occurred at 1:02 p.m. when Full grabe's southbound motorcycle collided with a northbound car driven by Gerald E. Smith, 503 W. Colton avenue, which was making a left turn into the driveway of Allen and White's Market. CLEAN SWEEP — Vernon Crear, chairman of the Redlands Lions Club broom sale project, holds an armful of brooms to remind residents that the annual door-to-door sale will be held today through Saturday. Long-handled brooms will be sold for $2 and wisk brooms for $1. Proceeds from the sale v.-ill go to the club's program for blind and visually handicapped children. (Facts photo) Redlands Daily Facfs Monday, May 3, 1965 - 7 Yucaipa votes tomorrow on new service district Voters will go to the polls tomorrow in a special election to decide whether t h e Yucaipa Lighting District will be converted into County Service Area No. 31 for street lighting purposes. Balloting will be limited to voters residing in the one-third Elementary School auditorium. Charles Williams, chamber president, has urged approval of the supervisors' resolution in an argument favoring the measure which accompanied sample ballots mailed to voters in the area.

Always in Controversy, Plan Must be Wrong Editor Facts: As an average citizen pcrhapr, f don't understand our vaunted master plan and why it permits shopping centers in established residential areas. Perhaps I also don't understand why it calls for our streets to be widened when Redlands is one of the few cities in southern Calif, that do not require the use of city streets to arrive at some other destination. Palm Springs has two streets, approximately the size of our Brookside, to handle all the desert traffic and people have to pass thru San Bernardino to arrive in the mountain areas but in Redlands our traffic is limited primarily to Redlands residents. It just doesn't make sense to eliminate the ti-ee Uncd beauty we now have by widening the streets so that there is easier access to shopping centers now in progress or under consideration. I may not understand the foregoing but this I do understand. If our master plan is such that it arouses the emphatic objections of the citizenry when items shown on the master plan are implemented, then it must be wrong for Redlands. In this age of the automobile shopping facilities are not necessary every six blocks. AU the arguments now being presented by people opposed to the Buin development have already been presented by others just as opposed to the Gerrard development. However, in the interests of "fair play," it does not seem proper that if our master plan allows these developments, the Buin development can properly be turned down. Daniel A. Larsen 914 W. Highland square mile boundaries_of theito progress," WilUams said. "The growtli established in Yucaipa during the past 30 years speaks for itself, yet the fact remains that no change nor any attempt has been made since the inauguration of a small lighting district 30 years ago, to afford lighting to any other part of Yucaipa Valley. "We have that opportunity now. Let us do our part to see that it is accomplished." Opponents of the measure claim the service area may be too easily expanded to include other services such as sanitaton and fire protection. for persons with a driver's license and operating the boat alone. Skin diving and SCUBA diving would be prohibited in county waters unless authorized by the Sheriff's office, the Lake Arrowhead Development company or the Bear Valley Mutual Water company. Immediate application of the ordinance, without the customary 30-day waiting period, has been discussed by the supervisors. The ordinance would also spell out additional conditions for fishing on Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear. N.Y. stocks NEW Y'ORK (UPl) — The stock market moved cautiously today. Steels generally were frac- [tions lower. Motors followed about the same pattern. Chemicals in the final hour recovered from the softness which prevailed in the section most of the day. Union Carbide was a strong spot. !.•> Most Active Stoclis {now-Jones Service. Courtesy Lester, Ryons & Co.) 205 E. State Volume Close Chnp. H8,7(ll) l.ehiBh Valley .... 4 4 Vz lM,:ino Consol.

Mrs. Eleanor Felton, county registrar of voters, said 706 registered voters will be eligible to cast ballots. Votes may be cast from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the two special precincts in the district—No. 1, Floyd White's office, 34989 Acacia avenue, and No. 2, American Legion Clubhouse, 12167 California street. The voters will decide whether the Dec. 30, 1964 resolution of the county Board of Supervisors is to be approved. If a simple majority of the voters vote yes, the resolution converting the old lighting district to a county service area will once again be effective. If there are more "no" votes than "yes" votes, the resolution will die; County Service Area 31, which came into being Dec. 30 will be dissolved and the Yucaipa Lighting District will be revived. Tomorrow's election results from petitions protesting the con version of the lighting district into a county service area. If the voters approve the resolution tomorrow, the service area will become responsible for providing street Ughting for the old lighting district and some 14 additional square miles. The special election will be discussed tonight at an open meeting of the Yucaipa Valley Chamber of Commerce, scheduled for 8 p.m. in Yucaipa Poultry and Eggs LOS ANGELES.
