This was underscored last night by Gen. Howell M. Estes Jr. MATS commander, who spoke during a transportation day dinner at Norton, attended by nearly 400 persons. Gen. Estes said the squadron of huge C141 Starlifters will give Norton "a solid foothold in the jet transportation age," in which tlie airlift has become a vital part of the U.S. military effort. Recognition of the historical importance of thfe airlift • has transformed it from an emergency measure lhat strains men and machines to the breaking point in 'iO an integral, economical part of defense transportation. Gen. Estes reported. "The Military Air Transport Service came into its own with the decision a few years ago to cut back inventories of military supplies," the MATS commander said. The airlift became a vital necessity in moving goods quickly and efficiently from where they were stored to where they were needed, he explained. In fiscal 1960. ho reported, the .^ir Force's inventory of spare parts and other supplies amounted to S8.79 billion. By the end of fiscal 1964 that figure had been reduced by $1 billion. And during that same period, he added, appropriations for purchases of new supplies were cut nearly in half. "The ability to airlift goods rapidly and efficiently enabled us to reduce our inventories and at the same time cut the amount of money spent on procurement," he said. However, the general explained that economy is only a secondary factor in the development of airlift capability. The need to move combat troops and equipment rapidly to any point in the world is the major element. The- nuclear stalemate, he said, "makes it likely that \ve will have to fight, or at least contain, lesser threats in many parts of the world. The list of contingency airlifts In 'recent years reads like a World Atlas." In addition, he pointed out the tendency of small conflicts to break out in pairs. The current need for supplying U.S. troops and equipment in Viet Nam and Santo Domingo is only a continuation of a trend that began with Formosa and Lebanon in 1958 and Guantanamo, Cuba, and Southeast Asia in 1962. "By 1968," he continued, "our airlift capacity to assist in these kinds of conflicts will have doubled over what it is now. By 1970 it will have doubled again. Our goal is the minimum capability to meet any contingency lhat may develop anywhere in the world." However, this capability depends upon the development of large, long-range aircraft such as the C141, which is being used by MATS now. and the C5A, currently being developed. He illustrated the economy, as well as the utility, of the planned C5A by reporting that a commercial version of the plane could carry between 500 and 700 passengers, reducing the cost of round-trip flight to Europe to less than SIOO. The C141, which will be stationed at Norton two years from now, is equal to the capacity of seven C124s, the piston-driven current backbone of MATS, on the major cargo run across the Pacific, said Gen. Estes. In addition, it wiU reduce the cost of air cargo by S540 per ton and the time to transport a given amount of freight from 7.6 days to 17 hours. However, the C141 cannot carry the Army's main battle tank, hence the need for the C5A. "Soon," said Gen. Estes, "it will be possible lb move anything anyone anywhere in the world wants rapidly and efficiently. The dinner meeting was spon sored jointly by the Inland Empire chapter of the National Defense Transportation Association, the local chapter of Delta Nu Alpha Transportation Fra ternity and the Valley Traffic Club. During the evening, donations totaling more than S400 from members of the three groups were presented to San Bernardino Valley College to establish a transportation library. SBVC has a special instruction program in transportation and traffic management. NOTICE I will not be responsible for any debts incurred by anyone other tlian myself. Vem N.

High vacancy factor noted in Redlands The percentage of vacant homes or apartments in R e d- lands is double the average for the San Bernardino Valley area, the county Planning department reports. As of April 1, a total of 14.8 per cent of some 16,960 dwelling units in the Redlands-Highland- Mentone area were not occupied, the county report states. The average for the Valley was 7 per cent. It the county's estimates are accurate, there are some 2,510 vacant homes or apartments in the Redlands - Highlands - Mentone statistical area, with about 1,764 of these vacant dwellings located in Redlands. Because of the high "vacancy factor" found in Redlads, the county Planning department has reduced the city's population to 33.170. In January, the county's estimate for Redlands was 36,130 persons. The reduction by some 2,960 in the Redlands population estimate was necessary because the county used a "vacancy factor" of only 5.53 when it calculated the city's population in January. While Redlands had the highest percentage of vacant dw^ell- uigs, the Yucaipa Valley registered the lowest percentage at 3.21 per cent of 7,029 dwellings. The county increased its population figure for the Yucaipa Valley from 17.840 to 18,950. Mentone, classified with Redlands in the 14.8 per cent vacancy rate, also was reduced in total population, from 3,570 to 3,260. The county's Population and Housing bulletin for April lists these vacancy factors for dwellings in other areas: Ontario- Montclair-Upland, 6.22 per cent; Chino. 7.01 per cent; .Mta Loma- Cucamonga-Etiwanda, 13.3 per cent; Fontana - Rialto - Bloomington. 5.22 per cent; San Bernardino-Colton-Loma Linda, 9.19 per cent. County to hold rabies clinics in this area Low-cost rabies vaccinations will be given to pets during immunization clinics scheduled at four Ptedlands area locations May 27 and June 8.

Locally, the May 27 clinics will be held at the Mentone fire .station, 2 to 3 p.m.; and the Yucaipa fire station, 10 to 12 a,m. and 6 to 8 p.m. On June 8, clinics will be held at the Loma Linda fire station on Barton Road, 3 to 4 p.m.; and at the Victoria school, 6 to 8 p.m. Redlands Daily Facts Saturday, May 22,1965-5 UC Regents still seeking organization solution still pending before the Board of Regents today is the complicated and controversial issue of what reorganization of the nine- campus University of California is necessary to prevent a recurrence of the Berkeley demonstrations. They conducted their May meeting at the Riverside campus yesterday afternoon. In advance, there had been predictions that the board would consider the report submitted May 7 to a committee of the Regents by Jerome Byrne. The committee had commissioned the Beverly Hills lawyer and a staff of eight to investigate the underlying causes of the "free speech" uproar at Berkeley and to submit recommendations. Regent William E. Forbes told the board that the public tempest in reaction to the Byrne report had made it impossible forj his committee to review it and' to make recommendations to; the Regents. After heated discussion, the Regents accepted his motion that the Forbes committee transmit the BjTne report to the full Board of Regents and be| discharged. | The upshot of his decision is- that the Byrne report will go be-i fore the Regents as a Committee of the whole. This will either be at their regular June meeting, or a special meeting. From the discussion, it resulted that the Regents wiU by no means consider the Byrne report as a blue print to be endorsed, as is. On the contrary, a number were emphatic in saying that it will be just one item to be considered along with the recommendations of President Clark Kerr, and with other material. The 85-page Byrne report recommended that the Regents limit themselves to policy matters and that administrative authority be decentralized. Referred to President Clark Kerr for implementation were the rules of student conduct drafted by the Meyer committee of the Regents. Especially sensitive are the points touching on the issues raised during the Berkeley troubles. On the question of who should discipline students — the university or the police and courts — the rule now reads: "A .student may not be disciplined for off-campus conduct unless such conduct affects his suitability as a student. Political action, as such, shall not be deemed to affect suitability." The Free Speech Movement picketed the meeting, favoring the Byrne report and opposing the Meyer report. One member, James Mundy was refused permission to speak by Gov. Edmund Brown on the grounds that if one person is allowed to talk, others must also be heard. Mundy went ahead, and, because there was no sergeant at arms in the room, Mr. Brown, as presiding officer, could not stop him. This caused Charles Powell, student president at Berkeley, to jump up and to insist that if the Regents are to hear from students, they should deal with the duly elected representatives. New 43'unit motel sought for old Hillcrest site A third motel has been pro posed along the Redlands Freeway in the vicinity of the Orange and Colton intersection. The proposal for a 43-unit Imperial "400" motel on the old Hillcrest Inn property on North Orange will be considered.Tues­ day by the city Planning Commission. Applicant lor commission review and approval of site plans and elevations for the motel is Frank Schneider and Associates. The plans call for a two-story motel building on the west side of North Orange, next to the! Freeway. A portion of the prop-! erty formerly was the site of the old Hillcrest Inn which was demolished several months ago.; Accordmg to site plans, there j would be 20 rental units and the manager's apartment on fhei ground floor and 22 units on the second floor. A 16 by 28 foot swimming pool would be situated in the northeast corner of the development. Off-strect parking would be provided for 44-cars. The planned Imperial "400" motel would be the third to be established within a two block area along the freeway since it w^as opened. The Stardust Motel was established on The Terrace at Sixth street, while the Best Western Motel was established on The Terrace just west of Sixth street. SIDE GLANCES By Gill Fox K 1*65 W NEA. f«.
