4 - Wed., May 5, 1965 kedlands Daily Facts Still $97,000 short of goal Hospital fund campaign adds another $27,002 The Redlands Community Hos. pital building fund campaign was S27.002 nearer its S500.000 goal today, but it still had nearly 897,000 to go to help meet construction costs. Campaign division chairmen reported at a breakfast meeting this morning that the $27,002 collected in the last two weeks brings the total contributions up to 8403,241. The goal in the campaign was raised to a half million dollars from 8350,000 two weeks ago after it was learned that bids on construction were far higher than the architect's original estimate. In addition, drive officials are trying to assure completion of the fourth floor in the planned five-story tower and the partial finishing of the fifth. To help bring in additional funds, officials today laid plans to broaden the base of the drive by seeking out new potential donors. "Previously," said drive chairman Lewis I, Pierce, "the effort was concentrated on peo- iple who had a past record of 1 generous giving." He explained Ithat an effort will now be made to locale other persons who might be willing and able to donate. And besides this, workers wiU continue to contact previously Ihsted potential donors and make further calls on persons and firms who were unable to make 'a decision on a gift earlier. I Pierce said the additional i funds will be used to put as 'much work as possible into the fourth and fifth floors on the initial construction job. "This would cost less to do as part of Ihe current program jand would obviate the inconveni- ience and mess that would be ' created by doing the work when I the building was in use," Pierce isaid. The hospital expansion plans I include an initial five-story patient care tower and an accompanying facilities with a second tower to be built later. When finally completed, the hospital will have a 400-bed capaci- ;ty instead of the present 98. Following are today's reported contributions. The division number is listed first followed by the campaign chairman or cochairmen, the division's goal in parenthesis, the total reported today and the division's grand total thus far.

Ronald Reagan 't Actor - turned - politician Ronald Reagan last night sharply criticized the expansion of the federal government in a speech before the Coiuity Mcdicial Society at the Orange Show in San Bernardino. A major target of his attack was the attempt at a government spon.sored medical care program. He called it a foot in the door for socialized medicine. lie cited the expense and failure of government health plnns in odier countries and declared llie proposed U.S. medicare program would cost three to seven times the official federal estimates. /Another target was education. Ho said a crisis in education was being "manufactured" as a means to justify federal encroachment in an activity usually left to local and state resources. He added that the government declines to provide a tax cut tliat would help poorer students stay in school but prefers to take taxes away from them and then give the money back in tlie form of loans and grants. Reagan said ho was not in favor of overturning existing government programs immediately but felt the government should bo withdrawing from areas that are better served by the private sector of the economy. On foreign policy, he declared that, "If an .\merican is askccl to ri.^k his life on a foreign battlefield then that American sliould be given the chance to try for victory."

Dick Mann, Ed Ruess and Ken Joris of San Bernardino and Wally Mann of Los Angeles, were only three trout shy of a seven-trout limit for each of the five men when gusty winds began churning up the waters of the lake about 1:30 p.m. Starting the outboard motor of their borrowed 16-foot aluminum boat, they headed toward the lake's docking area some distance away. On the way in, waves as high as six feet sent water streaming over the windshield and into the boat. Efforts to bail out the water failed and the craft was swamped.

"We all hung on and yeUed for help for about five minutes until another fisherman, James C. Young of Pasadena, spotted us," the Redlands man recalled. Unable to haul in the anchor of his boat because of the heavy winds, which reached gusts of 70 miles an hour, Young cut the anchor line and headed toward the struggling fishermen. Meanwhile, another fisherman, Tom Famigliett of Burbank, saw! the quintet in the water andj steered his boat toward them. Famigliett picked up three of the party with the aid of a rope, i while Young rescued the other two men.
