(Facts photo) School-park negotiations to be started Redlands school officials soon will begin negotiations with the city on a proposed agreement for using some school grounds as city paries. School Trustees authorized the negotiations last niglit in response to a proposal from the City Council and the Park Study committed. Under terms of the city proposal, school officials would prepare the school campuses for park sites in return for reduced water rates. Tliis would involve planting the grounds in turf and installing sprinkler systems, reported Bill Gibson, assistant school superintendent for business. The Trustees expressed enthusiasm for tlie proposal, but Gibson said he felt the city Bhould be wilhng to make "better arrangements" than the water price reduction which would amoimt to about a 50 per cent rate cut. Lutheran church location approved by commission Faragher wins UC Regents' scholarship John M. Faragher, son of Mr. and Mrs. AlvJn R. Faragher, 1228 Center, has been awarded one of the coveted Regents' scholarships to the University of California next fall, it was announced today by the university.

The scholarship amount is based on the student's financial need and can mean as much as the full cost of fees, board and room, books and supplies and other expenses. The university said the Regents' scholarship is one of the highest honors wliich can be conferred upon an undergraduate at the imiversity. Faragher wHl attend on the Riverside campus. A conditional use permit for jSite approval for a church and two-room day school planned by the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Wisconsin Sjnod, was approved yesterday by tlie Redlands Planning Commission. The permit, v.'hich carries an initial one-year time hmit and tile right to request a one-year extension, vriil go to the City Council for final action. The chiu-ch group plans a facility wliich will accommodate 200 people and a two-room day school on 2.2 acres of land at the comer of San Mateo and Magnolia. There was no opposition to the proposed church development during yesterday's public hearing, although Rev. Paul Heyn, pastor of the church, complained about tlie conditions required foi development of the property. Rev. Heyn said the $32,000 cost of the property, when coupled witli $24,000 which would be required to meet the develop' ment conditions, is "rather expensive." "You're pricing us out of the field," he told the commission. talk at VC Freeway ramp signs sought RIVERSIDE (CNA1 — The state Divsion of Highways has been asked here by the County Board of Supervisors to provide adequate signs for County Line Koad access from freeway Route 10 in Calimesa. A. C. Keith, county surveyor end road commissioner, reported that original freeway agreement had not provided for the signs. Supervisor Norman J. Davis of Beaumont said that tlie sign warning motorists of both the on and off ramps at the roadway had been requestml by the Calimesa Chamber of Commerce. According to the pastor, the present Prince of Peace Lutheran Church congregation consists of six families. E. R. Hales, commission chairman, told Rev. Heyn he would have to get "relief" on the permit's conditions from the City Coimcil. The chiurch's congregation currently leases meeting space at McKinley school auditorium and plans to continue meeting there until its new facility is constructed. The church group originally applied tor site approval and approval of an existing residence on the 2.2-acre property for tem- porai'y meeting purposes. According to Planning Director W. C. Scliindler, the use of the existing residence for meetings was ruled out because it failed to meet building code requirements and the original ap' plication was withdrawn. A lecture-demonstration on the makmg of teaching aids, illustrations, and scientific models will be presented from 7 to 8 p.m. tomorrow in the San Bernardino Valley College auditorium. The program will be presented by Karoly Foga^sy, senior scientific illustrator with the University of California, Riverside. Fogassy, whose work is displayed at the Smithsonian Insli- luto. The Museum of Natural History in Washington, and in many other museums and institutions across the country, will divide the program in half. Tlic first portion will deal with illustrations; the second, model making. "More people should become interested in scientific illustrations." said Fogassy, "the need for this ser\ace is mcreasing at a very rapid rate. There are more scientific publications, more publications needing precise illustrations, more museum displays." In September, Fogassy will be teaching a course in his special­ ity at San Bernardino Valley College. A teacher in Hungary before the Com.munist take-over, he was as well an architect in that nation's Ministry and Agi-icul- ture and also for two yeai"s Conducted the Budapest City Choir. He and his family escaped from Hungary in 1956, became U.S. citizens in 1962. Fogassy has been with the University of Califoniia's Riverside campus as a scientific illustrator since 1959.

Chairman of the current membership effort is Dennis A. Martin of Redlands. A goal of 125 new members of the Association has been set To rise 11 stories high LLU Trustees vote to add two floors to new center campus this noon that the trustee action yesterday was prompted by needs in the schools of medicine and nursing. The two schools, long divided between university campuses at Loma Linda and at Los Angeles, are both proceeding more rapidly than had been expected in consolidating their programs at Loma Linda, he said. School of Nursing programs currently are conducted in the old hotel building bought with the campus property on May 26, 1905 — the event bemg observed by the luncheon gathering where Dr. Anderson announced the new plans. The original medical center construction plan had called for Local Realtors to oppose new Unruh tax measure The Redlands Board of Realtors today registered strong opposition to real estate transfer tax measures being considered in the state legislature. The transfer tax, which would require many property sellers to pay a levy of 1 to 1.5 per cent of the purchase price, is at the heart of the Petris-Unruh tax reform bill, AB 2270. and another tax proposal, AB 609. The Realtors' resolution opposing the bUls was "based upon the knowledge that the owners of CaUfornia real property ai-e now caiTymg a staggering load and this proposed new tax would further aggravate an already difficult situation." Earl Johnson, board president, said the ti-ansfer tax would "strike at the wellsprmgs of California's growth by discouraging the sale of real property." "This means," he continued, "that a new industry coming in^ to California, it this tax were appUed, would have to pay for the privilege of locating here. The tax wiU be on the seller, but he certainly will pass it on to the buyer in the selling price." He ex-plained tliat the levy provides for a 1 per cent tax on improved property selling for $15,000 to $25,000 and 1.5 per cent over that figure. The transfer tax on undeveloped land would be 1 per cent <m the first $25,000 and 1.5 per cent on tlie balance. Improved property seUing for under $15,000 is exempted, he said. The measure authorizes county Boards of Supervisors to im pose the tax. Johnson added tliat, "the bill also takes away from the local jmisdictions substantial amounts of other tax monies so that its for the campaign, he added. Volunteer workers will attend a special kick-off breakfast which will be held at 7:30 a.m., tomorrow at the Holiday Inn Restaurant, aftei- which they wUl devote the remainder of the day to the intensive one-d a y drive. Climaxing the effort, a dinner meeting will be held that evening at which results will be tabulated.

"We urge the people of this area," he said, "to write their legislators in Sacramento asking them to oppose such a transfer tax as deterimental to the growth of California." additional stories in a second phase of building to follow completion of the basic luiit. Builders will now include the two upper floors in the basic project now under way, but will leave tliem only "shelled in"— that is. unfinished — temporarily until tliey are needed for use. One million dollars ^viU be added to the construction cost of the project by the work authorized this week. The School of Nursing floor will be completed at a cost of $250,000, and the two additional stories at the top of the building will be shelled in for $750,000. Another $750,000 will be needed later to ready the two upper floors for occupancy and use, Dr. Anderson said. Earlier estimates of the construction cost of the center had been $17,650,000. The School of Nursing floor wtU be added to tlie lower, rectangular area of the medical center extending northward toward the central campus, away from Barton Road. The two top floors, each including a level in all three of the cloverleaf- grouped towers rising from the hospital's rectangular base, will be on the south, overlooking Barton Road.
