X Student help sought Citrus labor problem worsens as men leave By RON KIBBY Departure of 37 more migrant farm workers today accented a deepening labor crisis in the Redlands citrus industry. The workers left the Cone labor camp this morning, most of them indicating they were going north to take other *iobs. More men are expected to leave early next week. Seriousness of the current labor shortage has prompted the State Farm Labor Office in San Bernardino to seek weekend help from students at the University of Redlands and at San Bernardino Valley College. There was no immediate information on the success of the student recruitment effort. There are now about 60 farm workers at Cone Camp available for local citrus growers. Another 200 "loyal locals"—as one spokesman described them —are also on hand. Charles Cram, Cone Camp manager, said he anticipates more men will leave the camp on Tuesday, the next scheduled pay day. He said 37 men left today after being paid. More than 150 had already left the camp since early April. Growers Skeptical A survey of Redlands packing house managers today revealed a mood of general skepticism about prospects for recruiting the number of workers needed for the Valencia orange and grapefruit harvest which is now getting started. Meanwhile, the lack of labor is playing havoc with Redlands packing houses which are losing business because they are unable to pick enough fruit to fill shipping orders. Bill Brunton, manager of the Gold Banner house, asserted: "There's an excellent foreign export market for Valencia oranges and grapefruit, but we can't fill the heavy export or ders. It's really hurting us.". Similar comments were expressed by other packing house managers who are ready to start the Valencia and grape-.less than 20 men today. A half fruit harvest. But three Redlands packing houses still finishing up the navel orange harvest appear to be the hardest hit at this moment. These packing houses, operated by Redlands Associates, are Western Fruit Growers, Mission Fruit company and Redlands Heights Citrus company. Navel Harvest E. R. Larsen, president of Redlands Associates, estimated that the navel harvest would continue for three more weeks. Larsen stated that the three associated houses have not been able to start the Valencia season because of the labor shortage, and that some navels have been lost. "We would have had an extreme, shortage if we had not been able to borrow picking crews from other packing houses that have completed the navel season," Larsen said. Laird Roddick, manager of Western Fruit Growers, reported that 200 men are needed to pick the remainder of the navel orange crop. "We are down to less than 125 men, and we aren't picking 60 per cent of the volume of fruit we should be at this time of year," he observed. Larsen predicted that the "real test" will come this summer. He said, "Without bracer- OS or some other foreign laborers we will not have enough help to pick fruit this summer." That outlook was shared by Bill Hardy, manager of Redlands Foothill Groves packing house, who said his crews keep getting smaller by the day. "Foothill Groves is not in a critical situation today because the Valencia season is just starting, but I'm becoming quite concerned that we'll face a cri sis it we don't get more men," Hardy said, "I couldn't meet a big demand for valencias if one developed today. Brunton also was concerned about the future. "I'm down to a dozen left yesterday. I should have about 40 workers," Brunton said. I don't know what will happen from here on. It may get progressively worse," Brunton said. The packing house managers contacted today all agreed that the departure of migrant domestic farm workers from the Cone labor camp was a 'routine" for this time of year. Historically, the laborers have left the Redlands citrus groves simply "for a change. Packing house spokesmen maintain that the termination of the Mexican National (Bracero) program is the cause of the current labor shortage. In past years, the migrant workers who moved north were quickly replaced by Mexican Nationals and the harvest went on imin- terrupted, they point out. Ralph Sechrest, president of the River Growers Association, which manages Cone Camp and provides harvest crews to 11 Redlands packmg houses, stated that the association is applying for 100 Mexican Nation als. But Sechrest admittedly holds little hope that U.S. Labor Secretary Willard Wirtz will approve the request. Sechrest, who is also manager of Redlands Orange Growers Association (ROGA) packmg house, stated that the labor problem in Coachella Valley grapefruit groves is far worse than the local problem. Sechrest said that ROGA has delayed its Valencia harvest in Redlands area groves because it has been concentrating on picking its grapefruit in the Coachella Val ley. "I sent seven local pickers to Coachella. Two of these I took oft their regular packing house jobs," Sechrest related. He added that ROGA has also had to turn down grapefruit export orders because they could not be filled. Eight elected to Redlands Chamber board The names of eight candidates elected to the board of directors of the Redlands Chamber of Commerce in balloting that ended yesterday have been announced by Chamber Manager Richard D. McHenry.

YHS students fo launch drive for gym machine A trading stamp drive by the student body of Yucaipa High School to finance acquisition of a S2,000 gym machine to develop physical fitness was approved this week by the Yucaipa School Board. One trustee called the drive "an intriguing way to raise money, while another, commenting on the advantages of a gym machine, said, "Anything to escape the usual calisthenics, I guess." Supt. Merryl L. Powell said the device, a "Universal Gym Machine," can be used by four students simultaneously as a physical fitness aid for all sports. "The student body will attempt YHS students to vote again for officers Yucaipa High School students went to the campus polls yesterday to elect student body officers. Yucaipa High School students were scheduled to go to the polls again today to elect student body officers. What happened yesterday? "Something went wrong, said one school official. "We had a small problem ... because of a lack of voting facilities, a stack of ballots got away from us." Running unopposed for student body president is Stuart Oakes. a junior. Others on the ballot for today's "revote" are Steve Sorenson, unopposed candidate for vice president; Barbara Simon and Claudia Oakes, secretary; Janis Kiiwanek and Pat (Chambers, treasurer, and Bruce Milne and Bill Solberg, vice president of the Desert Valley League. to raise the equivalent of $1,500 during the drive. The remaining S500 has been donated by the school's lettermen's club. in other action Tuesday night, the board authorized applica tion by the Yucaipa Joint Unified School District for $1,500 m supplementary vocational education funds under the Federal government's Smith-Hughes Act. Powell, commenting on progress of new school building in the district, remarked that construction at the new high school "is going Gung Ho," but that at the Valley Elementary School site is "still on the slow side."

The action was taken after an April 1 hearing disclosed neighbors opposed the two-story buildings proposed, but a decision was delayed then by the commission to see how the Board of Supervisors would .vote on the Yucaipa area master plan. The aijplicant for the site ap presented a petition in opposition with 54 signatures, and Mrs. Roy Wilford said that nobody would object to one-story dwellings. Thursday, when Gabriel said he would go along with last year's 36 units in one-story buildings, those at the hearing to protest said Ihcy were satisfied. Neil G.

The land is zoned for light industrial use, but in the master plan it is designated for medium density residential uses. The zoning, upon which Supervisors are to act Tuesday, is recommended as that for single family homes. Gabriel indicated Thursday he knew what was going to happen to the zoning for the property, so he withdrew his request for the 54-unit project in order to be sure he could go ahead with a project for fewer units approved last year. This would allow 36 residential units, in single story buildings. Neighbors had protested the approval for tliat granted last year. Weather April 7 ..... April S April 9 ....

Det. Sgt. George Collins said Barbara WiUson, 25, and Balbo Harding Jr., 29, both of Los Angeles, were identified by Nancy HoUenbeck, an em­ ploye of Maggie's at IS E. State street, as the pair who took the clothing in a recent theft. Mrs. HoUenbeck was contacted by Glendora police after they found a quantity of stolen clothing in the pair's possession fol- fowing their arrest on other charges. The confiscated clothing Te. portedly was stolen from the store's Upland branch. Police said the $160 worth of women's clothes taken from the Redlands store apparently was sold by the couple to a "fence." N.Y.
