Or is it? Lt. Claude Miles of the Redlands Police Department told his wife yesterday morning he was sure he'd heard a sheep bleating outside their Center street home during the night. Mrs. Miles gave her husband a "What kind of a nut are you, anyway?" look and h» left for work feeling somewhat sheepish about the whole thing. He was vindicated, however, after glancing through t h • previous night's police log. A young sheep, described alternately as "a goat" and "a iamb," had indeed been wandering the streets during the night. Police said it ended its journey a few doors from Miles' home where it was tied to a tree and later picked up by unidentified youngsters who owned it. When Miles telephoned the news to his wife, she reported ly felt . . . sheepish. 'Untypical' May weather brings area thunderstorm Old-timers who have been thinking that the weather during the last few days is unusual for this time of year have been right. The late afternoon thundershowers which have hit Redlands on two out of the last four days are more typical of a weak wintertime disturbance, according to a spokesman of the U.S. Weather Bureau. The "unusual" springtime rain desposited .10 of an inch of moisture on Redlands yesterday in a steady, light shower that began about 6 p.m. and lasted nearly two hours. Redlands apparently caught the heaviest portion of the spotty precipitation in the local area. The shower deposited .03 of an inch in Mentone, .02 in Mill creek and .01 in Calimesa. However, the weatherman said yesterday's shower was the dy ing gasp of a storm which today had moved northeast. The forecast for today and tomorrow predicted night and morning low clouds and fog and sunny afternoons.

The team will assist personnel from other GEEIA units expand and rehabilitate communication facilities at Far Eastern military installations. The men are expected to be gone for approxi mately four months. This Far East assignment is in conjunction with a program of expanded communication facilities in support of military ac- ticities in that area.

Roy Simpson, chief of the Weather Bureau's Pomona office, said the showers have been caused by a cold low pressure area aloft which created cloud- forming unstable air. "It's more like a weak wintertime condition," said Simpson, "but nearly every year we get it once or twice in May and maybe once in June. It's like the Santa Ana ^vind which usually blows during the vrinter but sometimes you get one in June and that makes Uars out of us." He explained that the high- altitude low pressure area moved in from Nevada Saturday and hovered over the mountains to the east of Redlands until last night. The city caught the western edge of the rain belt.

Lt. Willard Farquhar, commander of the Yucaipa sheriff's sub-station, said burglars apparently took "everything they could carry away" from three cabins and a barn on the 50-acre Harmony Ranch, owned by Harry A. Schuyler of Whittier. Among the items reported m.issing were furniture, dishes, cooking utensils, a gasoline generator, an old cider press, antique logging equipment, old pic- lures and even a leather-bound guest book. Lt. Farquhar said the theft may have occurred as early as last February or March, but was only recently uncovered. State seeks young men for job corps The San Bernardino office of the California Department of Employment, 211 W. 5th street is again recruiting young men, ages 16-21 for the Job Corps, it was announced by Mrs. Eve McLain, office manager. The Job Corps is for young men who are out of school and cannot find a job. Young men who are selected will receive basic education, job training, and the experience to develop good work habits. They will re- cieve room and board, clothing and spending money of $30 a month. When they leave, they will receive $50 for each month of satisfactory service in the Corps. Movies, athletics, games, libraries and various kinds of entertainment will be available at the center. Applicants must pass a physical examination and have a consent form signed by the parents, or legal guardian, if they are under 21 years of age. Interested young men should apply in person immediately since the quota is expected to be filled within a few days. He said the thieves smashed two locks on the ranch's front gate and probably made numerous trips into the property to cart away their loot. Farquhar said Ihey placed a lock of their own on the gate, thus covering up the fact that forced entry had been made. Two small cabins, the main lodge building and a barn were broken into during the thefts. The sheriff's lieutenant said the property, formerly an apple ranch, was visited at various times by church and other groups at Schuyler's invitation. The ranch is about halfway between Camp Angelus and Seven Oaks, some distance from a dirt control road. 70 parking spaces rented in Plaza lot A total of 70 spaces in the city-owned underground parking lot beneath the Redlands Plaza have now been rented, it was reported Wednesday. The U. S. National Bank, which will be located in the plaza, has rented 26 spaces for its employes. Other plaza businesses have rented 12 spaces while businesses outside the plaza have rented 20. The city has reserved 12 spaces for City Hall employes. There are a total of 175 spaces in the underground lot. Parking spaces rent for $10 a month. Covington gets civic award in San Bernardino Robert A. Covington of Redlands was presented the 1965 Distinguished Civic Achievement Award of the San Bernardino .Argonauts Club yesterday. The award was presented to Covington during the 13th annual San Bernardino Inter - Service Club Council luncheon. Covington, county administrative officer, was cited for his dedicated service to San Bernardino county. Covington, named to his key coimty position in 1959, resides on Country Club drive.
