lllNIIlil 1 ROAD AWASH Hub-deep water from melting snow in San Bernardino Mountains flows across Alabama St. between Redlands and Highland where 100-yard section of Santa Ana Wash crosses it. Foothill areas are on the alert for floods. Water Quality Inquiry Sought for Salton Sea CALIPATRIA To protect the Salton Sea as a prime recreational attraction, an Imperial-Riverside counties citizens' committee is seeking to have the state finance an investigation which could lead to eventual water quality control of the sea. Rising salinity and nutrient levels in the sea, which straddles northwestern Imperial County and southern Rive rside County, now threaten and could eventually destroy the inland sea's value as a prime sports fishery, waterfowl habitat and water sports attraction. Bernard Galleano of Calipatria, chairman of the citizens' group and Replica of Famous Plane Sent to Paris SAN DIEGO An exact replica of Charles Lindbergh's plane, "The Spirit of St. Louis," was transported by air to Paris Sunday to be used in the 40th anniversary observance of the aviator's historic transatlantic flight. Frank Tallman, a movie stunt pilot who built the replica, will fly the plane next Sunday along the Seine River, around the Eiffel Tower and into Le Bourget Airport, landing on the same runway Lindbergh used to complete his nonstop flight from New York. Theme Symbol The plane then will become the principal theme symbol at the U.S. Pavilion of the Paris Air Show, May 26 to June 4. Meanwhile, a drive is under way in San Diego to raise $50,000 through public subscription to buy the replica from Tallman for display in the Aerospace Museum, Balboa Park. The original "Spirit of St. Louis" is in the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. Bishop Will Pick Queen for Rodeo BISHOP Entries are being sought for the 1967 Bishop Homecoming Rodeo Queen. The queen and her court will reign over the Bishop Homecoming celebration and rodeo in September. As in the past, the queen will receive a handcarved saddle, silver buckle and a western outfit. SCHOOL UNIFICATION PROPOSAL APPROVED OCEANSIDE A plan to unify Oceanside and Carlsbad schools into separate school districts has been approved by the County Committee on School District organization. The program, which proponents fear has little chance for approval by the State Board of Education, will be submitted to that group this fall. Under the proposal, ichool districts would be , . ivHjv.'-jwX'..' :-:-;v :''':::U:''i::v5"::x'::i':''::':'i: iv;S:"f.:;:vJ-:J ;V:"."S : :C '. 'vv. director of Imperial Irrigation District, is forwarding to Gov. Reagan and members of the Legislature a resolution asking them to study the problem and take appropriate action. The resolution points out that while the primary use of the sea is to serve as a depository for irrigation drainage waters, it has been developed into one of the most attractive and well -used recreational areas of the state, as well as an excellent sport fishery and refuge for migrating water fowl. Probes Supported It notes that the State Water Quality Control Board and the Colorado River Basin Regional Water Quality Control Board strongly support feasibility investigations leading toward implementation of water quality control in Salton Sea. A reconnaissance investigation of the sea's water was conducted by the state and regional boards during 1964-65. It outlines the growing adverse content of the waters, advocating further studies as a precedent to implementing a water quality control project in Salton Sea. The citizens' committee, comprised of farmers from Imperial and Riverside counties, specifies that any plan of water quality control be so oriented as not to interfere with agricultural drainage and seepage waters. Pointing out that the recreational benefits of the sea accrue to the people of California statewide and not to agriculture, the committee insists that under no circumstances should agricultural lands be assessed to finance a water control program. Master Plan Projected at Carpinteria CARPINTERIA City Council and Planning Commission members have begun a series of joint meetings on a projected master plan for the community. Victor Gruen Associates is in charge of the project to prepare a plan to meet the city's expected growth for the next 25 years. Plan preparation will continue through M a y, 1968 and then will be followed by a series of public hearings called by City Council and the planning body, it was announced. organized along city boundaries. At present Oceanside and Carlsbad elementary schools are operated in that manner, but Ocean-side and Carlsbad are in a school district (Oceanside Carlsbad Union High School) that crosses city boundaries. In addition to approval by the State Board of Education, the plan also must' be approved by voters in the two cities. ' . .. . fS . ....

Levee Built to Safeguard College Site BAKERSFIELD A 6,000-foot levee 3.5 to 4.5 feet high is being thrown up along the north side of Stockdale Highway as protection to the donated site for construction of a state college in Kern County. Kern County Land Co., which donated the land for the college west of Bakersfield 14 months ago, is constructing the levee. William E. Rand, Kern County Land Co. manager of real estate, said the earthwork is being thrown up as an added protection against possibly heavy spring runoff in the Kern River. He said the levee will tie in with other levee systems in the area. While no flood is expected, he said, the new levee would protect both the campus site and Stockdale Highway. The college site has not been inundated in recent years, including during last winter's major storm which pushed the Kern River to flood proportions. Rand said the state colleges' engineer listed the flood hazard as minimal. Name of Park Honors Victim SEELEY An Imperial County roadside park has been named by supervisors in honor of a Seeley youth who lost his life in a Navy plane crash off the coast of Spain during war maneuvers. John R. Bates Memorial Park is named for the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Bates of Seeley, who was killed on his 21st birthday, Oct. 27, 1964, after 20 months of Navy service. Young Bates was a 1960 graduate of Central High School and had attended Imperial Valley College. The Seeley Women's Club and other community organizations plan to beautify and care for the memorial park, which is off Interstate 8 Freeway at Seeley. It has been planted to grass.

(1 00 24 Parti MONDAY MORNING, AAAY 15, 1967 Saving of $1.2 Million Held Possible in Plan San Bernardino County Would Spend $140,000 a Year for Employe Salaries SAN BERNARDINO County supervisors will hear a report today from Administrative Officer Robert A. Covington on a proposal to spend $140,000 a year to save about $1.2 million. The plan called COSMOS (County of San Bernardino Management and Operating Systems) calls for use of the county's new computer system to streamline and speed up a d m i n i s trative procedures. It's the brainchild of the county's four-man systems and procedures division. Further Savings Economies achieved by moving into only nine areas of county government could total about $1,281,000 a year and further savings could be made as the program expands, officials estimate. Nine projects selected by a steering committee of county department heads for the initial program involve the county recorder, facilities control, probation department, highway-flood control, property, welfare, personnel-payroll, hospital and sheriff. Covington, the steering committee chairman, said the $140,000 a year would be the total salaries of about 19 new employes needed to do the job. Supervisors Worried After hearing an initial report on the program, supervisors referred the proposal back to Covington for further recommendations. Supervisors are worried about hiring new employes with a rough budget session coming up. Covington cautioned that the cost reductions expected from the program do not represent opportunities for immediate dramatic budget reductions. Instead, he said, the program represents the beginning of a plan to satisfy the needs for increased service without proportional increases in costs to taxpayers. Student Body Leader SAN LUIS OBISPO Rush Hill, 22, a junior from Tustin, has been elected president of the California State Polytechnic College student body for 1967-68. Can this country s largest mortuary be considered a small neighborhood business? YES! Hemet Law Bans Telling of Fortunes Action Follows Application by Palm Reader HEMET An ordinance banning palm reading and related activities has been passed by the City Council. Police Chief Carl Mc-Williams requested the law prohibiting a person from charging a fee or accepting a donation for predicting or foretelling the future. Also outlawed are any acts which are claimed to foretell future events, "through analysis of a celestial body, crystal ball, tea leaves, playing cards" or by use of supernatural powers. The ordinance was prompted by an application from a Los Angeles woman for a business license in the city for purposes of palm reading. Modeled after a Riverside County ordinance, the Hemet law places punishment for violation at six months in the county jail or fine of $500 or both. Highway Assn. to Meet at Bishop BISHOP Officials of Pan-Am West Highway Assn. (Alaska to Mexico City) will meet here at noon May 22 with Inyo-Mono County public officials and Bishop business interests. Another similar meeting has been set for May 23 at Riverside. "With 20 mortuaries in greater Los Angeles, Pierce Brothers . serve more families each year than any other funeral director. But throughout our 65 years growth we have always thought of ourselves as a small neighborhood Business. Of course, it's important to those we serve to have the resources of a large company.
