Kedlands Daity Fazts 4-Saturday, May 8,1945 Stocks rise to record levels NEW YORK (UPIl— The stock market set aside its international worries this week and advanced to record levels on a modest expansion in volume. News of increasing American involvement in the Dominican Republic put pressure on the list Monday and, although only a tiny loss was recorded in the market averages, losses held a wide margin over gains. However, the Dominican situation held sway over investment decisions for only that one session. Prices got off to a good start Tuesday and the advance picked up steam as the session progressed. Dow - Jones industrials advanced 6.11 to a new peak of 928.22. Another good start was made and lost Wednesday but a last minute buying spree, prompted by re ports of a settlement in the Caribbean island, boosted the indicator 4.00 to 933.52, another new peak. The market closed the week with a day's loss of 1.00 in the senior average after a session of churning. The average advanced 10.21 on the week to finish at 932.52 just 1 point below tlie peak of 933.52 reached Thursday. Rails advanced. 0.76 to 213.39 but utiUties skidded 0.50 to 161.26. Standard & Poor's 500 stock index 0.74 at 9.85. It reached an aU-time high of 89.92 Thursday. Volume swelled to 29,562,190 shares from 28,115,890 shares a week before and 26,762,310 shares in the same week last year. Despite the size of the rise in the market barometers, gains held a comparatively small lead over losses at 730 to 651. Of the 1,534 issues traded, 294 hit new 1965 highs while 107 touched new lows. Business highlights WRONG-WAY SIGN — Division of Highways' Maintenance Department sign crew members Alan Ivie (left) and Walter Ross install the first WRONG WAY freeway off-ramp sign in this area. The warning sign went up yesterday on the north and south off-ramps at Sixth and H streets in San Bernardino. Although it may be several months before signs are available for all off-ramps, this location received a rush installation due to reports of numerous wrong-way incidents. State ready to install new wrong-way' freeway signs By United Press International Automotive: Ward's automotive reports — output of cars and ti'ucks in the U.S. this week estimated at 250,530 units com- pai'cd with 244.535 units a week earliei- and 212,579 units in the same week last year. Bank clearings : Dun & Bradstreet Inc. — week ended May 5, clearings in 26 Icadmg cities $48,342,541,000 agamst 543,855,167.000 a week before and $38,998,556,000 last year. Carloadings: Association of American R a i I r o a d s — week ended May 1, loadings totaled 600,672 cars compared with 578,712 cars a week earlier and 560.003 cars last year, year-to- date 9,678,616 cars vs 9,452,329 cars a year ago. Slcel American Iron & Steel Institute — week ended May 1 actual production totaled 2,776, 000 tons or 1.1 per cent below the 2,806.000 tons a week earlier. For the year-to-date output totaled 47,309.000 tons or 17.5 per cent above the 40.265,000 tons produced in the similar period a year before. The odds aren't too good. ,"WRONG Even a gambler-type motorist would shudder at his chances of survival. He might as well play a round of Russian roulette—because the odds of winning this classic game just about match the survival rate of wrong-way freeway accidents. These mishaps, according to the California Division of Highways, take about 30 lives a year in this State. And many persons are seriously injured, often permanently— because not too many people "Walk away" from wrong-way freeway accidents. The cause of these accidents, of course, is driver error. Motorists, for various reasons (including drinking), roar up an off-ramp and create momentary chaos—which usually is terminated in injury or death! As an effort to prevent wrong- way mishaps, the Division of Highways is installing newly designed signs on freeway approaches. C. V. Kane, the Division's District Engineer in San Bernardino, reports that about 1.000 signs will be installed in this area, which includes San Bernardino County and the western portion of Riverside County. The safety sign-installation program involves two types of signs. One type — a sign reading Senate votes disaster aid WAY" — will be placed beneath the existing "DO NOT ENTER" warning signs at freeway off-ramps which intersect with city streets or county roads. The new sign is designed with the warning message in white letters on a red background. Since motorists arc accustomed to recognizing the color red as a warning signal, the Divison of Highways hopes this new sign will stop potential wrong-way motorists before they create an accident, Kane noted. The other new sign, which reads "FREEWAY ENTRANCE" and consists of white letters on a green (a go-signal color for motorists) background, will be installed on freeway on-ramps. An additional effort to provide a warning to drivers heading into wrong-way freeway traffic involves the painting of large (4-feet-long) white arrows on off-ramps. Kane said some of these directional arrows ahready have been painted on off-ramps; eventually, all freeway off- ramps will have them. These tangible steps to offset the wrong-way driving menace are the result of a study by the Division of Highways, working in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Pubhc Roads, the California Highway Patrol and the city police of Riverside, San Diego, Long Beach and Los Angeles, according to the District Engineer. Kane added that the Division of Highways will continue to seek additional means to pre vent wrong-way driving incidents. This effort will include a follow-up study to determine the effectiveness of the sign installation program. Kane reported that it may be several months before the "WRONG WAY" signs are available for installation throughout this area. However, the warning signs were installed Friday, on the north and south off-ramps at Sixth and "H" streets in San Bernardino. The District Engineer said this location received a rush installation due to reports of numerous wi-ong-way incidents.

Binkey and other school officials applied for some $6,000 in federal funds to set up basic education project for adults with little or no formal schooling. Binkley said he hoped to start instruction by Feb. 1, since the money supplied this year could not be used after June 30 under terms of the federal agreement. Thursday, Redlands school officials were notified by telephone that the grant had been approved — not sent yet, but at least approved. "It's too late in the year to start a class," Binkley told the Facts, "but we can still use part of the money to buy books and other materials that can be used in the program next fall." AppUcation has already been made for additional funds to begin the program in September. Money grants for adult basic education are provided under the Economic Opportunity Act, popularly known as the war on poverty.

Angeles Times, asked yesterday that a federal suit charging the company's ac quisition of three San Bernardino newspapers violated anti-trust laws be rejected. In a point-by-point denial the company cited figures to support its case. The company acquired controlling interest in the San Bernardino Morning Sun, The Evening Telegram and the Sunday Sun Telegram last June 24. The Justice Department filed suit March 5, asking the Times- Mirror to divest itself of the papers in question. The federal complaint asked the federal court to order the company to divest itself of stock in the Sun Company and to forbid it to acquire any other newspaper in the metropolitan Los Angeles area. The times said in its response that the average paid daily circulation for 12 months ending March 31, 1964, was about 790,000 copies of which 16,650 were sold in the San Bernardino County. However, the Los .Angeles firm said about 37.8 per cent of its sales in San Bernardino County was concentrated in the western portion which adjoins Los Angeles County. These sales represented 15.3 per cent of the total daily newspaper sales in that area, the company claimed. In contrast, the daily circulation in the San Bernardino City zone was only 6.2 per cent for the Times, the denial said. The defendant alleged the daily circulation of the Sun - Telegram in the San Bernardino City zone was 45,852, or 93.3 per cent of the total daily newspapers. The Times-Mirror denied that newspaper readers and advertisers have been or may be deprived of the benefits of competition between the Los Angeles Times and the newspapers of the Sun Company. ^erospoce fiead reporfs 'sharpening' of policies The president of the government-supported Aerospace Corp., which operates facilities in San Bernardino and El Segundo, told congressional critics yesterday the research firm has been refining and sharpening" its policies and practices. Dr. Ivan S. Getting, head of the nonprofit corporation, made the statement in the last of four days of hearings by a House armed services subcommittee in vestigating Aerospace's spending, salary and other policies. Some of the firm's practices have come under fire from the General Accounting Office, Congress' watchdog over government spending. Getting admitted that, from a viewpoint of hindsight, there were company practices in earlier years that "needed tightening." "We have been reassessing our policies and practices," he said, "and we have been refining and sharpening them in the light of the conditions under which we must operate in the pubUc trust." Getting mentioned, among other things, continued efforts to reduce overhead costs. The Aerospace head also defended practices which subcommittee members criticized earlier in the hearings, including certain public relations expend! tures and money paid to a consultant psychologist. Asked if the psychologist had helped Aerospace, Getting said his work had an over-all value, although one of his reports made no contribution and the work was "cut off." The Aerospace president said funds paid a public relations firm for advice represented only the payroll equivalent of one man in the public relations department of the corporation. Aerospace came under new criticism yesterday for a subcommittee member for being in a position to make 130 per cent profit, as of today, on a 1962 Florida land purchase. "Maybe you're better as real estate speculators than as a nonprofit corporation," Rep. Charles S. Gubser, R-Calif., told Getting. Getting answered that the land near the Cape Kennedy missile center had appreciated only 32 per cent. It was bought when the Air Force could not find space to house Aerospace em­ ployes. It remains undeveloped because the agency later did find space. Getting said. The Florida land purchase at a price of $216,400 was cited by Gubser as another example of the "improper" use of fees which Aerospace gets from the Air Force for its work. These fees, which have totaled $16 million since 1960, are akin to profits a commercial company receives. However, the subcommittee feels the government should have more control over how the money is spent. Big business told not to be too greedy HOT SPRINGS, Va. (UPI) Treasury Secretary Henry H. Fowler' today warned big bu.^i- ness not to be too greedy in its demands for excise tax cuts spring. Too big a tax cut could oxer- heat the economy and put an end to the government's steady progress toward a balanced budget. Fowler said in an address prepared for delivery to Uie high-level Business Council. The Treasury secretary said crises like the one in Viet Nam. and the Dominican Republic are going to make it hai-d enough to reduce the federal deficit without too big a reduction in revenues. .Attending a two-<iay meeting tlie council here were heads of some of the country's largest corporations, many of which have been campaigning to get their products included in the reduction of excise levies. City Council takes stand on four state proposals PACIFIC DRIVE-IN THEATRES Open 6:00 — Show 6:30 — All Drive-in's Education,elementary subjects with an emphasis on reading and writing for persons with less than an eighth grade education. In a report prepared for a school board meeting in January, Binkley noted that the 1960 census showed that in the Redlands school district there were 225 adults with no formal education and 4,712 who went to the eighth grade or less. Many of these persons, the report added, are among the 1,488 families classified by the ccn sus as having combined family incomes of less than $3,000. The proposal called for housing the pilot project class in a low-income section of town, possibly at the House of Neighborly Service. School officials will try to recruit students by personal contact as well as by referral from welfare authorities. No new or additional funds from the local district will be required to participate in t h e program. The federal funds will pay for costs of administration salaries, books, pupil transportation and other expenses. The theory behind this aspect of the many-sided war on poverty is providing adults with at least a minimum amount of education will increase their earning potential with a consequent drop in the number of families on the welfare rolls. the University of Redlands Monday and Tuesday lo talk to classes and meet students.

City Council resolutions on four state legislative matters affecting the City of Redlands have been sent to key leaders in slate government. The resolutions declare the Council's support for a proposed telephone company tax and for a parkland dedication bill, but assert Redlands opposition to a bill establishing a moratorium on lumber-cutting in the Kern River Plateau and to a proposal to add painting standards to the uniform building code. All of the resolutions were adopted on Tuesday. The telephone tax would be authorized under a proposed constitutional amendment now before the state Senate. The amendment would require telephone companies to pay a local tax in lieu of a local business license. LITTLE SHORT SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — When multi-millionaire Walter S. Johnson, 80, went to city hall for the man-iage ceremony uniting him with Margherita Dan, 61, a Utile thing like money almost gummed up the works. Johnson, whose industrial fortune is estimated at $26 million, had to boiTow $2 from his best man for the marriage Ucense. CAKNIVAL By Dick Turner The Kern River Plateau logging moratorium is being op-j posed by Redlands city officials because "a moratorium on lumber and logging would imniedi- lately gravely affect one of thej largest industries in the City of! Redlands, possibily pulling this- industry out of business, causing the loss of 275 jobs and consequently, a serious economic setback for this city." The Council was referring to the Big Bear Timber company on North Orange street which conducts extensive logging operations in the Kern River plateau. According lo the council's resolution, the logging moratorium is being sought because present limber cutting operations are damaging the recreational value of the forests. With this in mind, the council's slate^ , , ,|ment urges a feasibUity study Telephone companies are noti^^ immediately initiated for the tRI-CITY DRIVE-IN *^ hwy. 99«Bet; Cotton and Redlands Frwy.
