6 - Friday, May 14, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts Camp Angelas annexation refused again by state The proposed annexation of the Camp Angelus area to the Redlands Unified school district was turned down yesterday by the State Board of Education. As a result j)l the decision, reached in a hearing in Los Angeles, secondary students from Camp Angelus will not be able to attend Redlands junior or senior high schools after this year. Redlands school trustees ruled Tuesday that if the proposal was denied, they would not consider any further interdistrict agreements for education of Camp Angelus students. Currently, three students from the small community attend Redlands High school under a contract with the Bear Valley school district, in which Camp Angelus lies. The annexation was vigorously opposed at the hearing by representatives of the Bear Valley district. They pointed out that a family with one elementary school child has moved into Ihe Camp Angelus area recently but was not living in the territory to be annexed. This was a major factor in the state board's denial of the annexation petition, reported Bill Gibson, assistant Redlands superintendent for business, who attended the hearing as a representative of the Redlands board. The petition was submitted by Camp Angelus residents who reasoned that it would be much easier for their secondary students to attend Redlands schools than schools in Big Bear City. Camp Angelus is about twice as far from Big Bear as it is from Redlands. Gibson also reported that State Superintendent of Instruction Max Rafferty reversed his earlier recommendation that the proposal be approved after he learned of the student who would be left out of the annexed area. The effect of the decision, in the light of Redlands' refusal to accept further i n t e r-district agreements, is to force Camp Angelus students to attend Big Bear High school unless agree- ! ments can be worked out with another district. Camp Angelus elementary school students, about eight in all, attend the one-room Glen Martin school in the community. Yesterday's ruling was the second denial in a year of a Camp Angelus annexation proposal. Last September, when a much larger area was being considered, the measure was denied after Bear Valley officials argued that it would take too much assessed valuation away from their district. Redlands Trustees had approved the annexation petition in both instances since it was felt that the Redlands district could provide a better educational situation for the students. From a financial standpoint, the annexation was of no consequence, one way or the other, since Camp Angelus has an assessed valuation equal to support its students but not sufficient to enrich the Redlands district. UCR report emphasizes: Citrus harvest machines myst limit leaf damage Potential designers of citrus harvesting machines have been •cautioned that leaf damage to citrus trees must be kept to a minimum. A team of horticulturists at the University of California, Riverside, presented the caution in a progress report they made on a study dealing with the effects of leaf and twig removal related to mechanical harvesting of oranges. The team began the study last spring on a grove of Washington Navel oranges to determine the effects of varying degrees of leaf and twig removal on fruit yield and quality. The researchers were C. Dean McCarty, horticulturist with the University of California's Agricultural Extension Service, and W. C. Kemper and L. N. Lewis, horticulturists at the Citrus Research Center, UCR. In the tests, treatments consisted of 100, 50 and 23 per cent leaf removal and removal of six to eight inches of stem with each fruit. .•\s they had suspected, the most dramatic effect of the leaf removal was in the fruit yield. Trees which had been completely defoliated averaged one-third of a box of fruit per tree; trees which had been 50 per cent de- N.Y. stocks NEW YORK (UPl) - Gains and losses almost balanced on the Stock Exchange today.

Kyons & Co.) •ilir, E. stale ume Close Chnc-l foliated averaged 2.93 boxes per tree; 25 per cent removal resulted in an average of 3.33 boxes per tree; where six to eight inches of stem had been removed, the trees produced an average of 4.08 boxes per tree, and check trees, which had received no treatment, averaged 5.08 boxes per tree. McCarty said fruit size increased with decreased yield but the increased size was not sufficient to offset fruit loss. Trees which were completely defoliated immediately produced a new flush of growth. There was considerable sprouting of buds on stems and branches inside the tree due to increased light intensity. New leaves which were formed were smaller in size than new leaves which made up the growth flush on the check trees. Minor element deficiencies, particularly zinc, were evident to a greater degree than on sur- roimding trees which had not been defoliated. Trees which had been 50 per cent defoliated showed the same characteristics, but to a lesser degree, as the trees which were completely defoliated. McCarty said still to be determined is whether or not an even lesser degree of leaf removal, say in the five per cent range, would have any effect. Also, the effect on future yield of clipping the stem approximately an inch above the fruit would be of value to those designing a mechanical harvester. Other items, he said, which might deserve investigation are llie effects of mechanical damage which might be sustained by developing flower buds when fruit is harvested in late winter and early spring and damage which might occur to mature blossoms and green fruit later in the season. Many bases plan Armed Forces day events Armed Forces Day observances scheduled for tomorrow at installations throughout Southern California will give residents a first-hand look at this nation's military might. One of the most elaborate programs has been planned at March AFB, near Riverside. An elaborate, all-day agenda includes flyovers by Air Force fighter, air rescue and transport aircraft. The day's events will be highlighted by a performance of the Navy's daredevil Blue Angels flying team. Air rescue methods, formation landing and Army paratroop jump techniques will be demonstrated. In addition, there will be demonstrations by Strategic Air Command judo experts and Air Police sentry dogs. Ground displays will include the gigantic B-52 bombers and KC-135 tanker air craft. At the Edwards Air Force Base Flight Test Center, the controversial F-111 fighter- bomber, the latest aircraft to begin tests at Edwards, will be shown on the ground and in the air in open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The variable sweep-wing plane will join more than 50 of the Air Force's operational and experimental aircraft in the show at the base. Visitors will see the record shattering YF-12A, the triple- sonic XB-70, the X-1D rocket research plane and many others. The 1 p.m. air show will feature flyovers and maneuvers by more than 30 aircraft, including the YF-12A. The Army and Navy will display several aircraft and the Army will also show four tanks.

(Facts photo) Six area chapters into one Red Cross merger plan would include Redlands A proposal to merge the six Red Cross chapters in San Bernardino and Riverside counties into a single Inland Empire chapter will be discussed at the regular board meeting at noon Monday at the Redlands chapter, 611 Chapel stret. John Doyle, board chairman of the Redlands chapter, said the proposal resulted from a study by a structure committee appointed by tlie organization's bi-county council of how tlie Red Cross could offer the best possible service and standardize that service among different chapters. Under the merger plan, temporary admmistrative headquarters for the Inland Empire chapter would be set up in Riverside with temporary operations headquarters in San Beniardino. Withm five years, permanent headquarters would be established near the georgraphic center of the metropolitan area to be served.

Leslie Williams, executive officer of the Connecticut State Police, drove here m an unmarked cruiser to attend a seminar called "Pohce Crisis—1965." Early today, Williams reported his own police crisis to local officers. His cruiser, containing a loaded revolver, an .4rmy carbine and 100 rounds of ammunition, a riot helmet and radiological testing equip ment, was stoleii from a parking garage. west on the boulevard to Sixth street, then south to the high school parking lot. At 2 p.m., serving of a brick pit barbecue will begin at Sev. enth street Park. Members of the chambers will serve the meal during the afternoon. Also featured will be a w-hiskerino contest with announcement of winners schedul for 3 p.m. at the park. Other events at the park in-' elude games for children of preschool age through the eighth grade from 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. with prizes awarded to winners. An aU local talent show and other entertainment will be staged from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. An exhibition ball game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the park's ball field. Purpose of the daylong program is to publicize Yucaipa Valley and to provide a day of pleasure for local and outside visitors. begin at 9 a.m. Saturday with displays of weapons and equipment, including a Hawk missile system, 155 mm self-propelled guns, and field dental trailers and operating room trucks. An explosive ordnance disposal unit will demonstrate disarmkig unexploded ammunition. Barstow Marine Corps Supply Center — From 10 a.m. Saturday, open house will include tours of repair facilities, displays of combat equipment, band concerts and assaults on a fortified position by a Marine rifle squad. No observances are scheduled at Norton AFB, San Bernardino, in keeping with the tradition of rotating celebrations between there and March AFB each year. Valley college to offer many summer classes San Bemardmo Valley College will offer a total of 147 courses ui 13 subject areas during its summer session, beginning June 21. According to Thurston B. Swartz, Summer Session director, open registration for the six and eight-weeks classes will be conducted June 17 and until noon June 18. Students presently enrolled ui the college will be permitted to sign in May 24 through May 28. Classes will be schedided largely in two time blocks Swartz said, one beginning at 7:30 p.m. and another beginnin at 6 p.m. Both college transfer and non- transfer courses are included. A total of 10 classes Under the proposal, Doyle said, the Redlands chapter would have nine members on the central chapter board of 63 directors. Redlands would maintain its present quarters with two full-time, paid staff members as it now has and the present Redlands chapter board would, in effect, become an advisory council. According to Doyle, who served on the structure committee which formulated the proposal, the plan will be submitted to the local Red Cross board Monday. No action is expected until about the first Monday in June in order to give board members time to digest tlie information. Doyle said the structure committee study stems from a suggestion made to all Red Cross chapters by the organization's national board of governors concerning possible standardization of services throughout the nation's 3.500 local chapters. Women getting to fee better drivers By GAY PAULEY UPl Women's Editor NEW YORK (UPl) — Evelyn Lucille Todd, whose job is promoting highway and traffic safety, defends the woman driver who consistently is cussed, criticized and cartooned. "Women are getting to be better drivers, but I doubt if the men will ever admit it," said Mrs. Todd. "It's still the battle of the sexes on the highways." Mrs. Todd, 56 and a grandmother of two, is director of the women's division of the Automotive Safety Foundation, in Washington, D.C. She travels the country preaching safety, mostly working with women's organizations. But sometimes it's an appearance before a men's group. She recalled the time she was keynote speaker at an American Bar Association law and Vital Records BIRTHS LAYCOCK—Born, a daughter, to Mr. and Mrs. James Laycock, 26464 Temple street.

"Men drivers are very annoying." said Mrs. Todd. "They'll turn in front of you, never signal, not sound a horn." Mrs. Todd said she believed the feminine driver is generally improved in performance because she's had to become the chauffeur, especially in two and three-car families. Of the 95 million licensed drivers, more than 50 per cent are women. The safety expert said she tries to think positively in campaigning for safety—that "with more edlcation and legislation we can bring down the traffic toll." Even so, last year, 47.800 persons were killed, 1.7 million injured and the economic loss amounted to 8.3 billion from highway accidents, she said. Her organization is non-profit, supported by more than 600 companies and associations representing car manufacturers, the petroleum, rubber, steel, cement and asphalt industries, tire dealers, insurance companies, bankers, and others.
