4 — Tuesday, May 18, 1965 Redlands Daily Facts City needs over 20-year period Ambitious improvements envisioned for airport (Editor's Note: This is the fifth of a series of articles concerning a long-range $17-million Redlands public improvement program announced recently by the city manager's office. The program is designed to meet growing demands for city services through 1985.) An ambitious program for continued development of Redlands Municipal Airport through 1975 is envisioned by city officials. About $870,805 in airport improvements are scheduled over the next 10 years. The long range objective is to implement the federally-endorsed Airport Master Plan of development. The plan calls for adding ap- pro.vimately 23 acres to the airport site, realigning and extending the runway, providing new taxiways and constructing an administration building. Between 1965 and 1970, the city plans to acquire the additional land, to construct an access road from Wabash avenue and generally prepare land that may be required for future expansion and aircraft parking and servicing. City officials hope to acquire two parcels of land totaling 19 acres on the south side of the airport before 1959. The anticipated price tag on the two parcel $152,000. Next year, the city has scheduled the purchase of a 2.9-acre parcel on the southwest edge of the airport and a 1.4racre parcel at the airport's west end. These properties are needed for aviation safety purposes. Construction of a 36-foot wide access road along the south side of the airport is also planned in 1965-66 at an estimated cost of $30,000. Although the S33,000 Admin istration-Terminal building has been scheduled for 1966-67, its actual construction will not occur until demands justify it. The structure will be centrally located on the south edge of the airport. In 1969-70, the long range plan calls for site preparation of city-owned land on the north side of (lie airport "for future overflow aircraft activities." The required work is bugeted at $50,000. Runway realignment and lengthening to 4800 feet will occur between 1970 and 1975 if air traffic warrants it. This is one of the largest airport projects contemplated, requiring the expenditure of some $262,000 for excavation and construction of a 75-foot wide mnway. In this same period, a new 40-foot wide taxiway, about 5700 feet in length, is to be built. Additional money will be needed for replacement of runway lighting a taxiway lighting. Ultimately, the runway will be lengthened to 5400 feet. The continued development of Redlands Municipal Airport is in line with the official city belief that the airport will help to attract new industry to Red lands, and that it may eventually become a source of revenue. Municipal ownership of the Redlands Airport was approved by the City Council in 1962. First braceros pour into state from Mexico CALEXICO (UPD—Some 600 Mexican workers poured into California today, authorized to enter the state in an effort to ease a farm labor crisis. The flow of the first Mexican nationals to enter California for farm work since the so-called' bracero law expired Dec. 31 began Monday night when 225 crossed tlie international border. They were put on buses and driven northward. However, federal immigration officials here said the processing of workers was being handled from Washington and Mexico City. The laborers were getting only a visual check and smallpox shot here. Officials said they were given other medical tests and otherwise processed across the border at Mexicali. All 1,563 Mexican workers approved by U.S. Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz for use in California agriculture are expected (0 be in the state by Wednesday. Tliey were to be admitted under Public Law 414. The California Employment Department said 1,063 nationals will go to work in the Salinas Valley strawberry and vegetable harvests, with tiie remainder moving into the San Joaquin Valley to work inthe aspa ragus fields. Wirtz approved use of the Mexicans because of an insufficient supply of domestic labor in the areas. Congress permitted PL78 to expire because it was felt that the braceros could be replaced by jobless Americans. The National Council o£ Agricultural Employers announced in Washington Monday that officials of the Mexican government and the California-Arizona Farm Labor Association have reached a basic agreement for use of the Mexican nationals.

(Focfs photo) New charity drive plan for Norton under study The feasibility of a single, combined charity drive at Norton Air Force Base this year will be discussed Thursday at a meeting between Norton officials and executives of fundraising agencies in cities which benefit from Norton contributions. The agency executives are expected to decide whether their groups should participate in a controversial new plan for combined payroll deduction drives on military installations. Many agency executives fear their organizations will come out on the short end of funds designated for specific purposes by the individual donors, according to Jim Youngberg, Redlands Community Chest executive secretary. The final version of the Combined Federal Campaign Plan, tested last year in six cities with nearby military installa tions, was disclosed recently by John Macy, chairman of the U.S. Civil Service Commission. The plan, the only one authorized for combined payroll drives at military installations, calls for local agencies to draw up set of campaign materials.

Nearly 330 seniors and 55 master's candidates will receive degrees. payroll deductions must include a space for designation of the donation to a specific cause. However, designations can be neither encouraged or discouraged by the campaign publicity or the solicitors. The designated money will go to the specified cause over and above its alloted amount of un­ designated donations. Allocation of undesignated funds will be based on the receipts of the participating agencies from federal campaigns over the past three years. The designation clause is the main bone of contention among the fund-raising agencies. Executives fear that there will be few designations to Community Chests or United Funds. Youngberg explained, "The Norton employes are not often likely to designate to the Redlands Community Chest or the Arrowhead United Fund because we're not a cause." He also said executives have doubts about the plan because funds designated to "causes" such as heart disease or cancer research are not subject to the strict control imposed on money collected and distributed by central agencies. Agencies in many California cities and in two of the six test cities have indicated opposition to the new plan because of the designation requirements. Nevertheless, Youngberg said he expected the plan will be approved by the executives because of "special circumstances" at Norton. Job instability caused by the planned phaseout of the San Bernardino Air Material Area (SB.AMA) and other operations at the base has lowered the morale and consequently the donations of the employes, he explained. Tests of the federal campaign plan in sLx cities last year showed total contribution increases between 20 and 125 percent over the previous year at military installations. Last year, when three separate drives were conducted at W.ASHINGTON (UPD—Presi­ dent Johnson today announced the first $52.3 million in grants to local organizations for his "Project Headstart" to prepare underprivileged pre-school children for regular classes next faU. In an annotmcement prepared for a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden to inaugu rate the project as part of his war on poverty, Johnson said that when complete the program will total ?112 million and involve grants to some 2,500 local areas. It is expected to help about 530,000 children, or half of all the poor youngsters reaching school this fall. Some of these children have vocabularies of less than 100 words, and many have never listened to a bedtime story or visited a zoo. Participating in the White House ceremony were R. Sargent Shriver, head of the antipoverty program who will ad minister Project Headstart; Dr. Julius Richmond, director of the project; avA a planning committee of experts in child development headed by Dr Robert E. Cooke. Today's grants are for the first 1,658 projects approved Johnson said the rest of the grants will be announced within the next two weeks. Johnson said the program will "rescue these children from the clutches of poverty which otherwise could grip them all their lives and will put them on an even footing with their classmates as they enter school." The first group of grants will finance 9,157 centers at which 352,537 children will be given the special training, Johnson said. He said the over-all program will use the services of 41,000 professionals, employ more than 47,000 poor ani involve more than $16 million in local contributions. Norton—for the community fund for health agencies and for over seas relief—more than $100,000 was contributed by Norton em ployes. Although contributions are ex pected to be down next year because of the phaseouts, local agencies hope to gain in the long-run by adopting the com bined drive plan for the base TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or ap pliances will find a ready market through Classified Ads.

Friendly fox likes Pfymoufft village folks Pearl Russell retreated from her patio into her home yesterday afternoon when she was confronted by a fearles.t, but apparently friendly, fox. Mrs. Russell, who resides at 809 Cajon street in Plymouth Village, spotted the grey fox walking across her patio about 3:30 p.m. and decided to get a closer leek. As she walked onto the patio, the fox unexpectedly reversed his direction and turned back to the patio —where Mrs. Russell met it faee-to-face. "It didn't run and didn't seem a bit scared. And when it started to walk toward me, I decided I'd do the turning," she related. The bold animal continued to meander around the yard for about 10 minutes, paying little heed to the curious neighbors and school children who ioined in the excitement. "It walked away. It didn't run," Mrs. Russell observed. MELON HEADS FUNCHAL, Madeira (UPI)— The "Club of the Melons" was officially formed Sunday with membership restricted—to men with bald heads.
