6 - Mon., May 10, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts Reapportionment may yet be decided by courts Pacific Coast News Service ; By JACK JOHNSON SACRAMENTO — Willi much agony and many trampled feelings a reapportionment bill of sorts appears to be taking place in the Senate. Last week the bill was sent to the Senate floor and placed on the inactive file until Thursday to allow Los Angeles County Senator Tom Eees time for "amending" in senatorial districts. Rees unveiled 12 senatorial districts in populous Los Angeles County on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday succeeded in having these made a part of the original proposal. The bill will now be sent out for reprinting and work starts in earnest on it sometime next week. Still to be dealt with are senators who stand to lose a, seat with the shift of powers!conjecture, supposition and ora- open talk several weeks ago of "a lower house reapportionment plan." This was the feeling conveyed by Rees and president pro tern Hugh Burns (D-Fresno) in discussing reapportionment plans. They feel the senate redistricting should be handled by the Senate and approved by the Assembly. But there is no chance of this. Already many hungry-eyed assemblymen, with an eye on the longer terms in the upper house, have aimounced plans for changes in present plans. "Better" Districts The ink marks on Rees' 12 Los Angeles County districts are being tugged back and forth in to "better" districts by half of the present 31 member county caucus. And in the midst of all the out and to the Assembly it stands no chance of passage as proposed. This could mean weeks of delay while compromises are worked out. Unless a conference committee is able to work a "political miracle" the July 1 deadline appears all but hopeless. Senate Gambles The Senate is plainly gambling on an extension of time. In many eastern states courts have not seen fit to give additional time but have reapportioned on a "one-man one-vote" basis. Should this happen Northern California would find itself worse off than under the present proposal. Los Angeles County would have 15, rather than 12, senators and several counties granted a second senator under the proposal now offered would have more than two.

The permit, with a valuation of S56.000, was issued to the Robinson and Wilson Construction company of San Bernardino. Plans call for the offices to be housed in a modem one- story, concrete block structure. The new offices will be built on the site of the old building which has been demolished. Permits for three swimming pools were also issued during the week. Prestige Pools will build an 18 by 36 pool for G. W. Paxton, 1315 East Brockton avenue. Permit value is §2,780. The same pool construction firm will build a 17 by 34 foot pool at 218 Belmont Court for John Herbert. Dollar value of the project is $2,680.

His unit supports the ADC mission of Yucaipa school district plans elementary library Plans for gradual establishment of an elementary school level library were disclosed last week by the administration of the Yucaipa Joint Unified School District. The district's board of trustees, which approved an expenditure of about $8,400 for 1965-66 county library services for kindergarten through the sixth grade, were told the administration plans to phase-in its own library system over the ne.xt three years while phasing out the county service. Dave Martin, director of curriculum and personnel for the school district, said the proposal calls for a one-third- reduction of the amount of county library Mel Ericson to get science training Mel Ericson, Yucaipa llish school junior, has been selected to lake part in a summer science training program in field ecology at the University of Nevada.

The airman is a 1962 graduate of Redlands High school. application participation in the NDEA program is approved. The remaining cost of the books would be paid out of state funds on a matching basis. At least one trustee, Marion Arnett, questioned the feasibility of the district establishing its own elementary library, partic ularly when Martin, in response to a question by Arnett, admitted that a full-time librarian would be required at a salary in excess of S5,000 annually.

The program is one of intensive introduction to field ecology and consists of lecture, laboratory, and field study of four nat u r a 1 environments, desert mountain, rangeland and aquatic.

They would rather buy as much time as possible and let the courts decide. When all is added up here however, it is not the courts which have succeeded in mov ing a reapportionment plan as much as the Assembly. Assembly Speaker Jesse Unruh never offered a word of rebuke to his fellow assemblymen who began select its representatives on a purely population basis. The order further placed this as the "first business" of the Senate in the 1965 session and set a deadline for some plan at July 1. Should the Senate gel its plan Scholarships for seniors open at YtIS Announcement of local scholarships available to graduating seniors at Yucaipa High school w-as made this week by Worden NoUar, principal.

Application blanks are available at the counseling office of the school and must be returned by 4 p.m. on May 17.

Kennedy. lated northern counties, which have held the upper hand in the Senate for many years. May be Forced Thus with the court at its back and on eager Assembly waiting at its front the Senate may have to move out a bill of some sort. The Assembly with many eager candidates for senate, will likely ammend it drastically or draw up a plan of its own for the courts. And the courts may just look at the discrepancy in districts, from less than 200,000 in some counties to more than 520,000 in Los Angeles County, and decide that its order has been "sidestepped". In which case aU of the efforts of the 40 Senators for the past four months have been in vain. A strong proportion of the "silent" observers here would still bet on this as the ultimate solu lion to the problem.

The annual observance lias been endorsed by Governor Edmund G. Brown and by the San Bernardino County Board of Su pervisors. Slightly less than two and a half million veterans of the armed services now live in California, according to Gagnon, constituting approximately one- third of the state's labor 'force. He quoted figures from the local Employment Service that approximately 212,000 veterans had registered for work in em ployment services throughout the state in 1964, some 3935 in the San Bernardino area alone. "That means an awful lot of veterans looking for work," Gagnon said, adding that he would underscore the comment of Governor Brown in his endorsement of the annual HIRE A VETERAN WEEK that "the State and the Nation cannot afford to lose the services of these war veterans who through their service to our country earned an opportunity to continue in gainful employment." Gagnon pointed out that by placing job orders with the San Bernardino local office, employers have the benefit of exposing themselves to the largest file of qualified job applicants in the community labor market, with all applicants classified occupa tionally on the basis of ap tiludcs, education, training skills, and work experience. o must for sun £• surf...
