4 - Friday, May 7, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts Bi in Hudak thinks of people oops, whorls and arches By HERB PASIK Ask Bill Hudak about people and, like as not, he'll tell you they come in three basic types —loops, whorls and arches. That is, unless Mother Nature stirs the loops, whorls and arches together. In that case, a person turns out to be an "accidental" in the fingerprint- oriented eyes of Hudak and others in his field. As identification—or ID—officer for the Redlands Police Department during the past 6 years, Hudak probably has "lifted" more latent, or hidden, fingerprints at crime scenes than Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot presumably collected during their combined fictional lifetimes. What does he do with all those 'prints? Some of them are discarded. That's because they may turn out to be those of a store owner or employe and not the fingerprints of a thief who burglarized the store. Others are tucked neatly away in a metal filing box until such time as they may be used to link their owners to crimes. An enlarged photograph of one such fingerprint, lifted by Hudak from a sliding glass window in a Redlands garage during a burglary investigation, currently hangs on a wall in the district attorney's office in San Bernardino. Local couple hurt when car hits ditch A Redlands couple was injured early today when their car hit the edge of a drainage ditch on Fifth avenue and went out of control, striking a cement driveway abutment, police reported. Officers said Donald Joe Brooks, 33, of 1328 E. Campus avenue, driver of the car, and his vdfe, Mary Magdelane, also 33, were taken to Redlands Community Hospital by ambulance following the accident, which occurred at 2:31 a.m. Brooks was treated for multiple lacerations and bruises of the face and head and his wife for multiple facial lacerations and a cut knee. According to police. Brooks said he was conversing with his wife when the wheels of the vehicle struck the edge of the ditch near Dearborn street. He said tlie car went out of control and slammed into tlie cement abutment. A DUSTY JOB - Bill Hudak, identification officer for the Redlands Police Department, delicately dusts a part from a cash register for hidden fingerprints during investigation of a recent burglary. The hidden, or latent, prints ore brought out by brushing surfaces with a special type of powder. One such fingerprint, picked up by Hudak at a crime scene, led to conviction of two men on burglary charges. The latent thumb print, wher.^cago as a security guard with 'the electromagnetic division of General Motors. He also did photographic work for the company, applying the knowledge he acquired as a hobby-minded youngster. Since joining the Redlands Police Department about 10 years ago, Hudak has held a variety of posts including patrolman and radio dispatcher. He admits, however, he was glad to get out of the radio shack, even though it eventually meant assignment for six months as a parking meter repairman. As the police department's only ID officer, Hudak spends a good deal of time in the darkroom, developing film and printing evidence photos frequently used in criminal investigations. One of the biggest problems he said, is keeping a crime scene free of "contamination" compared with that of one of two suspects arrested near the crime scene, was instrumental in convicting the pair of burglary. A jury found sufficient points of comparison, 10 or more of which are normally required to qualify as courtroom evidence, between the two thumb prints to lead to a conclusion of guilt. The revealing patterns of human fingerprints, brought into viev/ by sprinkling with a special dusting powder materials a: crime scenes which criminals are thought to have touched, are "lifted" with frosted scotch tape and placed on white paper for possible future comparison with a suspect's "known" fingerprint. Although it is considerably more difficult to uncover good t^pecinicns. according to Hudak, footprints sometimes play a key role in tripping up the criminal. Not long ago, a burglar who broke into a Redlands market made the mistake of stepping on a dusty meat tray. Confronted with a full-size photo of the shoeprint. which matched his own perfectly, a suspect who initially denied complicity broke down and confessed. Hudak's sleuthing embraces virtually every conceivable type of criminal clue. That includes strands of hair, bloodstains, pieces of torn fabric, expended pistol shells and bullet holes. In addition to having com pleted a course in scientific crime detection accredited by California courts and law enforcement agencies, the 42-year- old officer spent six months in in-service training with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department's identification bureau. He began his career in law enforcement in his native Chi- (Facts photo) until it can be thoroughly photographed and checked for possible clues. The modus operandi, or method of operation, uncovered during an investigation may often tip off police to the type of criminal—amateur or professional—they are dealing with. Sometimes, the physical evidence at a crime scene may even point to a certain known criminal, who operates in a particular fashion, Hudak explained. What does an ID officer do during his leisure hours? Hudak says he gets a bang out of watching TV mysteries. His professional training, however, frequently gives him an unfair advantage over the average TV viewer in figuring out video "whodunnits." "Most of the time," he said, "there's an over-abundancy of clues if you watch and listen closely."

There were ample warnings from others, however, that the congressional action should not be construed as a blank check for all-out ground war in tlie Far East. The House approved the supplemental appropriations biU Wednesday on a 408 to 7 vote. Because tlie Senate made no changes it went directly to the White House. Sens. Wayne L. Morse, Ore., Ernest Gniening, Alaska, and Gaylord Nelson, Wis., voted against the bill. Nelson protested tlie "precipitous haste" involved. Morse and Gniening said they feared it would mean Citrus Market LOS ANGELES, May 7 (UPI) — Representative prices by size and grade all orange auction markets; 56s 72s .3.83 3.77 2.02 2.39 113s First grade 3.86 Second grade 2.35 First grade ..

Grueoing charged the President was dragging Congress around like a dog on a leash" and branding congressmen as "less than patriotic if they choose to differ and disobey the presidential command." Morse predicted Johnson would announce the landing of "thousands of more troops in Viet Nam." Senate GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen, III., whose Republi can colleagues gave solid backing to the President, led the attack on Morse's arguments. Dirksen said the North Vietnamese radio had been quoting Morse's frequent criticisms of U.S. policy as a sign that the United States is softening, and "every little nation. . .will scoff at us if the Senate lets the President down as (Morse) wanted it to do." Six Yucaipa seniors get scholarships Six •yucaipa High School seniors have received college scholarships during the past month on the basis of their high scholastic acheivements, it was announced this week. A report to the school dis trict administration by Agnes Lamkie, senior counselor at the high school, notes that three students, Carolyn Caminiti, Sandra Lane and Mike Wilhelm, have recieved California State Scholarships valued at up to $1, 500 annually. In addition, Miss Lane also was granted scholarship aid from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Supt. Merryl L. Powell told trustees of the Yucaipa School Board Tuesday night that Wilhelm has accepted a full scholarship from the University of Southern California's School of Architecture worth S2,000 a year. Two other students, Nancy Howe who plans to attend Whittier College and Charles Chiappone who will attend University of Redlands, have been awarded scholarships from those institutions. Richard Fitter has recieved a certificate of honors at entrance from UCL.'^ and has been awarded a Regent scholarship by the University of Cahfornia. the highest such honor granted by the university. Mrs. Lamkie's report notes that all of the scholarships are renewable and may be retained for the four years that the student is in college, providing he or she maintains a satisfactory grade point average. HIGBEE GRADUATES — Airman James L. Higbee, son of Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Higbee of 11696 Dodd street, Yucaipa, has completed Air Force basic military training at Lackland AFB, Tex. He has been selected for technical training as a statistical data specialist at the Air Training Command (ATC) school at Sheppard AFB, Tex. His new unit is part of the vast ATC system which trains airmen and officers in the diverse skills required by the nation's aerospace force. Donald Hunt submits low school bid Yucaipa contractor Donald Hunt submitted the low bid yesterday for construction of a new five-unit classroom building at Crafton Elementary school. School officials today were studying the bids and the contract is expected to be awarded during a school board meeting scheduled for Tuesday evening. Six other contractors also submitted bids ranging up to the high of §82,065 turned in by Swen F. Larsen. A proposed school tax reform bill in the state legislature would cut local school taxes, but it would depend on higher state income taxes and other revenue and would place strict regulations on school districts. Details of the Petris-Unruh tax reform bill, AB 2270, were explained today by Assemblyman John P. Quimby (D-Rialto) and a Redlands school official. Quimby said taxpayers in the Redlands Unified School district could expect their school taxes to be reduced under the bill next year from S3.22 per $100 of assessed valuation to §1.97, a cut of S1.25, or 39 per cent. The total Redlands school tax rate is just over S3.31 per §100 assessed valuation, which includes a 10-cent override "civic center" tax for recreation and public use of school facilities. The assemblyman pointed out that the state not only would substitute funds to make up for the loss in local revenue but also pour an additional §97,700 into Redlands school programs. However, Bill Gibson, assistant Redlands superintendent for business, pointed out that the measure would also place an absolute ceiling of five per cent per year on local school tax increases after 1965-66. "This would create a situation where the people couldn't even go to the polls and vote to increase their local school revenue by more than five per cent even if they wanted to," Gibson declared. He also said the California Teacher's association has issued a warning on the bill. The CTA declared that if the act is passed before school budgets are made out this year, districts may try to increase their taxes by huge amounts to provide a higher base for the five per cent Umit on later increases. Redlands' Republican Assemblyman Stewart Hinckley sharply criticized the bill. 'I don't think the real estate taxes are going to go down like that," Hinckley declared. "They may not go up as fast as they would otherwise, but they're not going to go down. This bill hasn't been through hearings yet and those figures are just guesses." "This is no tax reform biU, he continued. "This is just a gimmick to raise more taxes to support the Brown admmistra- tion, which is in the hole." Although Gibson said local school officials are studying the bill to determine its specific effect on Redlands, a preliminary estimate indicates it would hurt educational programs. "We may be facing a situation where we would need an increase of more than five per cent," he declared. Both Quimby and Gibson pointed out that the loss in local revenue, as well as the increase in state aid, would have to be made up through significant hikes in state income taxes. Also being considered is a new five- cent-per-pack state cigarette tax and higher state sales tax levies. Quimby also said the bill would improve local business cUmates by eliminating the inventory tax, help senior citizens who are being forced out of their homes by high property taxes and ehniinate taxes on household furnishings. The proposal is one of four tax measures that have been introduced but on which no hearmgs have yet been held. s City issues 76 licenses for new firms in April Trend: Slightly higher in spots. r PACIFIC 0RIVE-IN THEATRES 1 Open 6:00 — Show 6:30 — All Drive-in's TRI-CITY DRIVE-IN H*>. 90 Bet^ Cotftn and Rcdtands Frwy.,Exit '.'Loma Linda'*—Ph. 796-0777 NEW CREST THEATRE 5th & "E" Sts.

Four persons died in Mound, three in Spring Lake Park, one in Norwood, one in Mounds View, one in Fridley, and one in tlie Robbmsdale Hospital. Hospital workers were still trying to match names to some of tlie bodies today. Young, Old Die The dead ranged in age from an 84-year-old woman to a 3- month-old baby whose body was found in a street. Gov. Karl F. Rolvaag paid a midnight visit to Mercy Hospital at Coon Rapids, where more than 100 persons were treated and 25 were admitted with se^ vere injuries. Rolvaag ordered out the National Guard to main tain order and aid in rescue work.

Ralph & Thelma CampbeU, Jack Tabata, one of the owners of Tabata Bros, strawberry farms, said a 12-acre field at nearby Westminster would be plowed under this morning. He said the strawberries in the field were worth $120,000. Tabata also said that hundreds of other acres with berries valued at about §4 million will be leveled in the county. The county's berry crop last year grossed $12 million. Acting as spokesman for 85 growers, Tabata said Thursday he sent telegrams to President Johnson. Murphy. Sen. Thomas H. Kuchcl. R-CaUf.. and Secretary of Labor WiUai-d Wktz. He said the telegrams advised the officials tliat the destruc tion of the strawberries resulted from lack of experienced field hands - such as Mexican bra- ceros - to harvest them. The Bracwo program, under which Mexican nationals were imported as farmhands, ended last Dec. 31. Murphy flew to Los Angeles from his office in Washington, D.C., last night for an emergency tour of the fields. He also planned to tour the fields tomorrow witli a group of growers to check on asserted spoilage caused by tlie lack of workers. He said he would report to the Senate next week on his findings. In anotlier development, Ron Rankins, director of the California RepubUcan A.ssembly (CR-A), estimated that 100 persons in Orange county had responded to an appeal from the state president of the assembly to volunteer to pick crops.
