8 — Tuesday, May 4,1965 Redlands Daily Facts BRAKING ACTION - The wheels of this runaway boxcar, visible at right, were sheared off in Redlands this morning when the boxcar ran over a parked auto, causing the box­ car to grind to a stop in the middle of Fifth street a short distance from the front of the building in the background. (Facts photo) 'Mooniighf sale cancelled this year Downtown Redlands association members yesterday voted to eliminate the annual "Moonlight Madness' sale this year and concentrate on a promotion connected with the scheduled June 10 opening of the new Redlands Plaza. The annual sale, which usually featured closing off State street, streetside merchandise booths and other special promotions has been held each May for the last several years. This year it was scheduled for May 14. However, at yesterday's DRA meeting, several merchants indicated it would be difficult to stage a Moonlight Madness promotion in May and another a month later for the Plaza opening. Plans were made to devote ne .Nt Monday's association meeting to developing promotional plans for the gala opening celebration. Most merchants indicated they planned to stay open on Thursday evening, June 10, the night of the plaza opening. Riverside Plaza bars Muslims in court order Sale of the controversial Black Muslim newspaper, Muhammad Speaks, has been barred from a Riverside shopping center by a temporary restraining order. The same paper was sold on downtown Redlands streets Saturday. Riverside County Superior Court Judge Leo A. Deegan Friday continued an earlier court order upon agreement of both the Muslims and officials of the Riverside Plaza. There is no law against selling papers on a public street, as the Muslims did in Redlands, but an injunction can be issued for private property, or if salesmen disturb the peace or unduly harass citizens. The earlier restraining order was issued April 14 after plaza businessmen complained that salesmen had been harassing customers. The court complaint in the civil action charged they were using" toercion in sales. Friday's hearing was schduled for the Muslims to show cause why the order should not be made permanent. The plaza's lawyer said after wards that Judge Deegan's action left the door open for a motion by the Plaza or the Muslims to amend the order or re move it. However. John Shabazz, a Los Angeles Muslim minister who represented the cult in Friday's court proceedings, said he had not come to argue against the order. The judge's decision was announced following a conference in chambers with Shabazz; Capt. Edward 2X of Muhammad's mosque 27 in Los Angeles; Russell Ribbard, plaza vice president; and Gerald F. Sehul- te, its lawyer. The newspaper, official publication of the cult, spurns the integration approach of civ rights workers and advocates complete separation of Whites and Negroes. Stale studies difricult problem If you driver. meet wrong way you're dead By JACK JOHNSON Pacific Coast News Service SACRAMENTO — If you meet a wrong way driver by accident on one of California's freeways, chances are you'll be dead. This has become increasingly apparent to state safety engineers looking for a solution to the problem of wrong way drivers. And, as they search, the problem is mounting with more| deaths recorded in such accidents during the first four months of 1965 than during the ness of the latest attempts. Prime factor in nearly half of the wrong way accidents is liquor. Many of the drivers are drunk or have been drinking before moving out onto the freeway against the flow of traffic. Blood tests of killed and injured drivers have revealed that more than one third were either drunk or marginal. Another 10 per cent to 20 per cent had I been drinking enough to register some alcohol in the blood. The second known factor the freeway and was weD rested. The freeway, two lanes, was visible for some di.stance Despite these factors I had to make an emergency swing onto the center divider at the last moment to avoid being hit.
