The Council vetoed the identification signs as proposed, maintaining they would not be compatible with the residential neighborhoods in which shopping centers are located. Instead, the Council approved the use of identification signs located on the three-feet-high concrete block walls around the shopping center sites. "Tenants want to be united under a common identifying trade mark. One free standing sign is quite important," argued John Foy, spokesman for the developer of the Northside Shopping Center at San Bernardino and Orange. The Council also adopted a sign code amendment "expressly prohibiting" shopping center tenants from posting temporary paper signs on windows or walls of their stores. N.Y.

Pierce, president, announced today. Final wording of the construction contract with Donald, McKee and Hart, Redlands contracting firm, was being worked out this morning. The contract for 52 ,358,729 was expected to be signed this afternoon. Total cost of the project, including equipment, is expected to be nearly $3-million. First work to be undertaken will be the erection of the five- story tower which wiU provide 51 beds for patients on the first three floors. The hospital board is studying ways to finance completion of the fourth floor wliich would increase the number of new beds to 71 and would in­ crease the capacity of the hospital to 179. The construction contract calls for completion of the tower in 16 montlis. This would mean that the Iniilriing could be put into use sboul October, 1966. i\Ir. Pierce today hailed the forthcoming groundbreaking as the most significant event in the 39-year history of the hospital. "To carry to completion this tremendous project, we still need the help of every commu nity-minded person in Redlands," Mr. Pierce said. "We have predicated our plans on the willingness of the citizenry to contribute 5500,000 to this im portant cause. We are approaching our goal and with continued united support we can achieve it." The groundbreaking will be on the orange grove property to the south of the present hospital. For stop at Redlands-Oak A "giant-sized" stop sign on Redlands boulevard at Oak street, one of the city's worst "problem" intersections, was recommended yesterday by the Redlands Traffic Commission. A battery of three regular size stop signs designed to halt eastbound traffic on the boulevard currently exists. The commission's recommendation, if approved by the City Council, would result in replacement of the center sign with one about four times as large. A sign similar to the one proposed by the commission recently was installed at Crafton and Lugonia in the Mentone area. Police Chief Stanley Bowen noted at yesterday's commission meeting that an average of 10 to 12 citations are issued monthly to eastbound motorists failing to stop at the Redlands-Oak intersection. The intersection has been the site of a number of serious traffic accidents in the past, many of them resulting from failure of motorists eastbound on Redlands boulevard to observe the existing stop signs. The easterly approach to the intersection is also posted with four "stop ahead" signs and an intersection warning sign. In other matters yesterday, the commission: Took no action on a request from the city manager's office for a stop sign at the Grove street railroad crossing. The request was made because the crossing was not among those included in an investigation by the Public Utilities Commission concerning crossing signals. The commission, however, referred the matter to the city engineer's office which was asked to contact the PUC regarding the placement of a stop sign at the crossing for southbound traffic. Under the state vehicle code, the PUC must approve installation of a stop sign at railroad crossings before the stop can be enforced. Recommended installation of intersection warning signs and double yellow lines on Colton avenue near Judson street. The recommendation followed a request from Grover Toliver, 1402 E. Colton avenue, for a four-way stop at Colton and Judson. Stop signs for north and southbound traffic on Judson are currently the only traffic control devices at the intersection. Recommended one-space load­ ing zones on Redlands boulevard next to the Tartan restaurant at Fifth street and in front of 24 W. Redlands boulevard. Held in abeyance, pending further engineering studies, a request for a "realistic" speed zone on San Mateo between Brookside and Cypress. An accident study of the intersection of Fern and San Mateo also was authorized. The present speed zone on San Mateo is 25 miles an hour. A three-day study, however, indicated that 80 per cent of the cars traveling on the street between Brookside and Cypress reach 35 miles an hour. The commission also recommended installation of yield signs on Pacific where it intersects with Cedar and ordered a further study of traffic conditions at the intersections of Monterey and Cedar and San Mateo and Cedar.

County planners reject community pool concept SAN BERNARDINO (CNS)- A request for approval of a lot in the Holiday Mis subdivision area, east of Redlands, for use for a community swimming pool was turned down Thrusday by the county Planning Commission. The proposed site was at the northeast comer of Melrose and Bedford drives, in an area zoned for single family dwellings, with 20.000 square feet of land required for a building site. The applicant for the site approval was J. M. McShane. Residents in the community protested the proposed swimming pool, to be 20 feet by 50 feet and to have a 12-foot wading pool for children and a bathhouse as part of the project. Those in opposition declared the developers of the area. Pickel and Gambtll, have failed to keep the streets free from mud and that they also did not provide enough parking for pool users.

Citrus Market LOS ANGELES, May 21 'UPI — Oranges: No representative prices. A request for approval of the pool was submitted in a petition signed by 45 person. "They said parking would not be required, as users would walk to the pool. Upkeep of the pool and the pool property would be provided by the subdividers and a club committee, the petition stated. Ralph Kirsch told the commission that a better location could be provided, and Major J. Bailey asked that the zoning in the area be upheld. Commissioners were told that lots in the area are large enough for pools for those who want them, that this was the reason that many bought property there. Commissioner Lewis I. Pierce of Redlands said that he has had some experience with such community pools and that he questioned plans for the upkeep of the proposed pool. There was no information on how the pool would be maintained, Neil Pfulb, county planning director, declared. He added that the commission, if it wanted to approve the project, could make its approval on the basis of an acceptable maintenance plan being later sub- milted. "If this had come to us with the subdivision map, so it was part of this from tlie beginning, with all (he lots tied in, we could have accepted it, said commissioner John H. Paterson. "But now it's sort of weak." The vote for denial was unanimous.
