Ed Sampson's Heating and Cooling 1338 Walbash Ave., Mentone Phone 794-1130 The movie Tom Jones provided a glimpse of the good living that Merrie Olde England was famous for. But beginning this weekend, Redlands area residents can sample a bit of early Britain at first hand — at the new Steak Eater's Inn. The new restaurant, richly decorated in an Old English motif, is situated at Highway 99 and Live Oak Canyon road, five miles east of Redlands on the freeway. The completely new building is one mile east of the former location on East Highway 99. But Mac Clay, co-owner of the establishment with his sister Billie Elder, says the plush atmosphere of the restaurant is only the frosting on the crumpet. What is the Steak Eater's main attraction? "The food," Clay says emphatically. Whether or not Merrie Olde England was noted for its steaks, that will be the specialty of the new eatery, as its name suggests. The Steak Eater's main menu item will be cooked in an ultra modern kitchen in full view of anyone who cares to watch. What's more, the lean red beef win be displayed attractively near the entrance, at one end of the kitchen. However, if you're not an ardent steak enthusiast, there will be a complete menu of other items, including prime rib, lobster, chicken, shrimp and other seafoods. As with every major restau- New Steak Eater's Inn has Old English motif 'rant, the new establishment v.ill also feature banquet facilities, live music and dancing on weekends, a cocktail lounge and a piano bar. A major feature of the Steak Eaters, built by J. B. Sooy Construction, of Redlands, wUl be an ultra-plush executive dining room designed for small luncheon and dinnsr conferences. Complete with telephone, deep red carpet, masculiie hunting scene murals and gold table service, the quiet room wUl be available for private executive parties of up to 14 persons. The Old English decor begins with the heavy, grained wooden doors conveniently reached from any point in the large parking lot. Inside, two ornate gold lamps hang on each side of the entry. As you enter the main dining room, a side passage leads to the cocktail lounge. Tables with comfortable padded captain's chairs fill the main dining room, while plush booths line two sides of it. At the back is a piano bar which can be reached from either the cocktail lounge or the dining room. The ceiling consists of a rough charcoal plaster with gold flecks which resemble stars. The carpeting is also of charcoal color. Large expanses of walnut paneling around the walls are re lieved by occasional areas of attractive gold wallpaper. The cocktail bar, upholstered in plush black leatherette will be enhanced by massive arti- jfacts in the old English style and by amber lights glistening off bottles and glasses. The new Steak Eater's is certain to impress the Redlands area resident looking for a nice place to have dinner or lunch. In addition to Sooy, the following contractors were responsible for the appointments and equi ment of the restaurant. Kitchen equipment, Avery Fix ture company, Los Angeles; ceramic tile, Coffey Tile company, Loma Linda; interior decoration. Bruce Danielson, Redlands; electrical work. Holly's Electric, Yucaipa.

Mac C/ay and his shier own new Sfeok Eoter's Mac Clay, co-owner, with his sister Billie Elder, of the new Steak Eater's Inn, describes himself as "just an average guy who has to work for a living." But the new restaurant he has built at the Redlands Freeway and Live Oak Canyon road, is the kind of monument to individual initiative that characterizes the best of the American heritage. Clay, who has lived in Redlands for most of his life, went through Redlands public schools Wants TV in hearings WASHINGTON (UPI) - Rep. Robert F. Ellsworth, R-Kan., wants the House to let live television cameras into committee hearings and into the House chamber for some floor proceedings. The Senate already allows broadcast coverage of many of its hearings, but the House still bars television cameras and microphones under an order by the late House Speaker Sam Raybum. In a statement Thursday, Ellsworth said that broadcast coverage would increase popular understanding of the con gressional process. A number of attempts has been made to allow such coverage in the past, but none has ever come to a vole. WASHINGTON (UPI) —Agriculture Secretary OrvUle L. Freeman Thursday gave Lassie a special award for "significant public service in forestry education." He got a moist kiss in return. i Freeman presented thei award to the dog star and to^ actor Robert Bray, who por- 1 trays Lassie's forest ranger master in a television series. The Forest Service, an Agriculture Department agency, provide story and technical advice for the series. and graduated from Redlands High in the class of 1938. He started out in the restaurant business more than 20 years ago as co-owner of a drive-in restaurant on the site where the new Safety HaU is now. Later, he became associated with a restaurant and a bowling alley before going into business for himself again five years ago. He and a partner opened the first Steak Eater's Inn at 31653 E. Highway 99. The old estab lishment is being closed down for the opening of the new business. A member of the Elks club. Clay and his wife, Ann, live at 766 B Pine avenue, Redlands. Shorf' on potatoes WASHINGTON (UPI) — An Agriculture Department offlcial said Thursday there are fewer potatoes on the market now than at any time since 1938. and that prices are about double what they normally would be at country shipping points. He said bad weather durin; the 1964 growing season and a substantial decline in the win ter potato crop had cut supplies. He blamed poor yields instead of a cut in potato acreage. Despite US space outlay, Russia stiil leads WASHINGTON (UPI) - Despite U.S. outlays of $7 billion a year, Russia still leads this country in the space race, and according to space Director James E. Webb Russia's aim in space is world domination. Webb said the United States has proposed cooperative space ventures, but the Russians "in this field as in many others.. . have been competitors and have been seeking some means to gain power over us and the means to further their interests in dominating the world." Webb said space outlays by Soviet space programs and goals in closed-door testimony taken by a House appropriations .'•ubcommittee last month and made public today. He said this country's Apollo or moon-shot program is two years behind schedule. He blamed budget cuts for the delay. But he said there still is hope the United States can put men on the moon by the end of the decade, as planned. Web said space outlays by this country have been chmb- ing steadily to a total of mere than $7 billion projected for the 12 months starting July 1. Of this, the space agency he heads will spend about S5.2 billion, with the rest allotted to the defense department and other agencies. to Mr. and Mrs. Mac Clay and Billie Elder at the new Steak Eater's Inn Electrical Engineering by HOLLY'S ELECTRIC Award for Lassie Facts Classified Ads Can Sell Anything CaU 793-3221 Our Best Wishes to the Steak Eater's tnn On the Occasion of its Opening Automatic Fire Sprinklers Designed, Engineered and Installed by INLAND AUTOMATIC FIRE PROTEQION 1457 N.
