In the center is Glen Watson, manager of the California World's Fair Corp. At left is James Rector, president of the Inland Empire Exposition (Facts photo) Corp. It 'll come in 1969 Organization formed for S.B. Worlds Fair By HERB PASIK Supporters of a proposed 1969 San Bernardino world's fair launched their campaign today for an international exposition they predict will draw 15 to 18 million visitors and have a S500 million economic impact at "no cost to the taxpayers." "We are going to have a world's fair in San Bernardino in 1969," said James R. Rector, president of the newly formed Inland Empire Exposition Co., Inc., (lEEC) a non-profit group responsible for policy guidance, financing and site development of the proposed exposition. Rector, a TRW Space Technology Laboratories executive, made the statement at a press conference this morning at the National Orange Show grounds, proposed site of the world's fair. Also present were Woodrow Miller, Orange Show secretary manager, and Glen Watson, Los Angeles attorney and general manager of the California World's Fair Corp., a non-profit promotion group. As outlined today, plans call for a six-month fair running from April through September of 1969. Watson said there is "no question" of a San Bernardino world's fair not receiving the endorsement of the Bureau of International Expositions, which thus far has given only "tacit approval" of the plan. He said the lEEC, as policy making and financing agency for the fair, will lease the 157- acre Orange Show grounds and enter into an agreement with county supervisors, w h 0 last week approved "in principle" a leaseback arrangement to finance construction of ?13 million worth of facilities for the fair. According to Watson, the fair's construction program will be financed by a tax-exempt bond issue by the lEEC, under- WTitten by the supervisors. Watson said an architectural advisory group will meet within "a week to 10 days" to select a master planner who, in turn, will formulate a "dramatic and unique" master plan for the fair. The Los Angeles attorney predicted attendance of 15 to IS groups in which "no money changes hands." A budget of $100,000 to 5200000 has tentatively been fixed by the lEEC for the next six months following its organizational meeting yesterday. The money will be raised from private capital. The funds, according to Watson, will be used for basic architectural and economic studies and a survey of proposed accommodations in order to "give sound information" to county supervisors. He said the "major hurdle" — agreement last week by the supervisors to underwrite the $13 miUion construction costs— "is behind us." Future "hurdles" seen by Watson are continued building of support, enlisting the aid of business and industry in providing "interim financing" and acceptance of a basic plan by residents and taxpayers in the county. Watson said some 200 acres of land, in addition to the Orange Show grounds, will be necessary for parking and auxiliary facilities for the proposed exposition. According to Miller, publicly owned land adjacent to the grounds is available. The Orange Show secretary- manager said plans are to coordinate the fair "between Orange Shows" which are held in March. He said he foresees no conflict between the two expositions. IPCs Apollo motor gets test tomorrow The system designed to whisk m.oon-bound astronauts to safety in an emergency will get its stiffest test Wednesday at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Apollo program officials at the Manned Spacecraft Center have announced plans to fire a Little Joe 2 rocket topped by a dummy Apollo spacecraft and its escape tower to a record height of 175,000 feet. A major component of t h e Apollo emergency launch escape system is a powerful solid propellant rocket motor designed and produced by Lockhesd Propulsion Company in Redlands. The launch escape motor subsystem, consists of a 155,000- pound thrust rocket motor and a smaller motor for pitch control mounted in the forward section of the escape system. Lockheed officials said the Apollo safety device recently became the first major spacecraft subsystem to complete NASA qualification tests and is now considered man-rated, or qualified to be used in actual manned flight. In Wednesday's test, reportedly scheduled for 6 a.m. scientists hope to determine at what altitude an astronaut could be returned safely using the ex- cape tower rocket system if trouble developed in the Saturn booster. months would be a factor in staging the fair, said: "The overall climatic condition here is vastly better than at the New York World's Fair." He alluded to "imaginative and dramatic concepts" of air conditioning which he said are planned for the San Bernardino fair. Miller, noting that Boeing Aircraft Corp. was "instrumental" in bringing a world's fair to Seattle, said the same role is being taken here by TRW Space Technology Laboratories. In addition to Rector, Joseph W. Caraway, another STL executive, is serving as vice president for pubUc relations on the ll-member lEEC board of directors. Other board members are Richard G. Sleight, vice president for finance; Oliver G. Jacques, vice president for management; Bruce D. MacLachlan, vice president and legal and recording secretary; Bernard M. Scheppers, secretary, and Richard L. Benton, treasurer. Also on the board are William T. Brown, Barstow; Alvin J. Tatum, Victorville, and James K. Guthrie, San Bernardino. Caraway said during the press conference that the lEEC's "next step is to get to the people of Riverside and Ontario and get them interested" in the proposed fair. He said a speaker's bureau Watson, asked whether theiis being organized to "fan the climate in San Bernardino during the spring and summer area" and disseminate information on the exposition program.

Watson said that. In his opinion, San Bernardino County will end up with $13 miUion to $15 million worth of building facilities and a surplus from fair profits "at no cost to the taxpayers" when the proposed fair ends.

The final section, about a mile 'No shooting' sign design now settled RIVERSIDE (CNA) - It is finally settled. The county's "no shooting" signs are going to be so small that they will not make inviting targets at all. The County Board of Supervisors decided Monday that they should even keep the "no shooting" portion tiny enough so that the "o's" would be tougher to hit. Sheriff Ben Clark was directed to start ordering 8 by 10 inch signs with black lettering on yellow background that says "Closed Area" in large letters with "no shooting" or any other appropriate lettering to be smaller. Supervisor Norman J. Davis of Beaumont said he believed that this choice of lettering would discourage potential target shooters, addmg that the size and color had been successful for the state Fish and Game Commission and he was hopeful these would work as well. The supervisors had adopted a firearms control ordinance some weeks ago, but had argued the matter of signs sizes, shapes and word selec tion for an additional month. cinity of the Cherry Valley Boulevard Interchange. East and westbound traffic has been using the freeway's eastbound roadway during construction on the westbound section at this location, according to the District Engineer. Kane added that the Redlands- to-Beaumont freeway widening project still involves completion of construction on ramps at Live Oak Canyon and Singleton Roads, the Brookside Avenue Overcrossmg and the ramps and overcrossing at San Timoteo Canyon Road. San Bernardino gets new Redlands Daily Facts Tuesday, May 18, 1965 - 5 State forced to condemn for MEMENTOS FROM HOME - Noboru Udagawa, a resident of Hino, Japan, admires Sister City display in City Hall. Mr. Udagawa is visiting Redlands as part of a world tour. (Daily Facts photo) Hino law student visits Redlands on world tour San Bernardino Mayor Al C. Ballard, in a surprise move yesterday, named a new chief of police to succeed Melvin W. Owens, who has served as chief since last Dec. 16. Ballard promoted Sgt. Louis J. Fortuna of the Police Department's juvenile division to the police chief position. The City Council endorsed the appointment by a 3-2 vote. Fortuna, who assumed his new responsibilities this morning, said that Owens will be utilized in a staff and advisory positir rather than to return to his former job as sergeant in the Traffic Division. Owens reportedly said he had not been informed he was to be replaced until a reporter notified him of the council action shortly before noon. Fortuna, 41, of 279 East 43rd street, has 18 years of service with the department, 17 of them in the Juvenile Division. "One of the reasons I appointed Fortuna is because juvenile delinquency seems to be one of the biggest problems we have, and by putting a juvenile officer in as chief, I hope to solve that problem," Mayor Ballard stated. Ballard created another stir yesterday when he requested that former Mayor Donald B. Mauldin's controversial city- owned 1963 Lincoln Continental sedan be offered for sale. Ballard said he had never set foot in it. "I'll drive a Ford, or whatever car the city gets," he declared. A 22-year-old law student from Hino, Japan, ended a visit in Redlands today. This was his first stop of a world tour. Noboru Udagawa, a resident of Redlands' sister city, was conducted on a tour of local public schools and the University of Redlands. Yesterday, he visited San Bernardino Valley College. Mr. Udagawa is staying with Mr. and Mrs. Charles C. Parker 642 Alta Loma drive, while he is in Redlands. Parker is chairman of tlie Sister City Committee. A student at Waseda Univer­ sity in Tokyo, Mr. Udagawa arrived in the United States on Friday. He plans to return to Japan in March, 1966. He will leave Redlands tomorrow and will tour the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas. He will spend three months in the United States before traveling to Europe and other parts of the world. Howard Wagner, principal of Mariposa School and a member of the Sister City Committee, met Mr. Udagawa when his ship docked in Wilmington and coordinated the visits to the schools. Norton team investigates ¥iet Nam plane explosion Pacific Coast News Service SACRAMENTO — Thirteen property owners holding land in the proposed Heart Bar Valley State Park may "delay development of the area for several- months according to c spokesman for the Department of Parks and Recreation. Since 1963. when S5.1 million was allocated for the purch.nse and development of the 4400 , acre park, only 1444 acres have been acquired — those mainly from governmental agencies. According to Donald Lawyer, with the Division of Planning and Control, hold-nut owners, controlling nearly 3000 acres of land, have rejected all department offers for purchase of the property. Even with this delay he said he does not expect total costs over the amount originally budgeted. The department has begun condemnation proceedings against land holdcr.s and it will be up to the courts to appraise the land and set a final price. Lawyer said because of a crowded court calendar decisions may not be reached until late this summer. He said the park should bo completed within a year after all land is acquired. When the park, located near Barton Flats, is completed it will have facilities for overnight camping, picnicking, horseback riding, hiking, fishing and some winter sports. Of the S5.1 million allocated for the park, S2.S million was funded for land purchase and S2.5 million for land development. The development funds will be used to construct 670 camp units. 300 picnic units, five 75 person group camps and over two miles of riding and hiking trails. A four-man team of explosives experts and safety officers from the Deputy Inspector General's office at Norton Air Force base were in Viet Nam today to investigate the cause of an explosion which killed 20 Americans Sunday. The team was headed by Air Force Inspector General Lt. Gen. William K. Martin. They flew to Viet Nam early Sunday to help determine the cause of the disastrous explo sion, termed accidental, at Bien Hoa air base. A total of 30 persons were reported killed in the chain-reaction blast which was apparently set off by an accidental explosion of a 50-pound bomb aboard a taxiing B57. The Norton DIG team assisting in the investigation consisted of Brig. Gen. J. T. Uoh- bins, director of air space safety: Col. Joseph A. PetaUve, ground safety explosive expert. N.Y.

Miller, chairman of the State 65 Plans Liaison Committee, and president of New York 65, largest of the state 65 plans. "Today there are approximately 320,000 elderly people covered by the state 65 plans in eight states," he said. "At the end of 1963, there were such plans in operation in five states.

Local employes of Aerospace large givers Some 70 Redlands employes of Aerospace Corporation, San Bernardino, contributed a whopping $5,146 to the Redlands Community chest drive this year, it was announced yester day. The employes contributed an average of $70.30 each through the company's payroll deduction plan, reported Jim Youngberg, Chest executive. The funds were collected by the Arrowhead United Fund and those designated for Redlands were transferred to the local Chest. During a meeting of Chest directors yesterday. Youngberg warmly congratulated the employes for their contributions. He also praised the firm's personnel manager, Redlander Jerome F. Brownson Jr., who played a key role in eliciting the cooperation of the workers. Some people object to Dedi;cti- ble Clauses in Homeowner's policies. They shouldn't. We think the purpose of insurance is to protect us against financial loss that really hurts; those small losses we can stand ourselves, we should. Experience under Homeowner's policies has been going sour principally because of a high frequency of small losses. Either these small losses must be eliminated or the rates are going to have to be drastically increased, and no one wants that. We've become accustomed to Deductibles ir Auto Insurance, and we'll simply have to get used to them In Homeowner's. Sawyer, Cook & Co. REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA Insurance & Sj/fefy Bonds 12 W.
