The party of Navy Seabees, landed by ski planes yesterday to build a U.S. base at the South Pole, reported by radio that their survival tents were pitched eight miles away from the pole. If they cannot repair their caterpillar-track weasel, they must trudge the distance through powdery, knec-decp snow. The men are the first ever to go to the two-mile lush polar plateau to live for any period. Their mission is to build a base for U.S. scientists who will make observat.ous during the sunless Antarctic winter. Four navigators taking observations from the air -pinpointed the geographic pule at the place where the Seabees di.Minbarked from two (.'47 transports. Cut from the ground Navy Lt. I'.icn-aid A. Bowers of Han lsburg, I'a; took sun sights with a theodolite at six-hour intervals to locate the pole more accurately. Bowers, leader ol the expedition, reported back to this base on the Antarctic coast: "Still located original camp. Weasel down for batteries, and cracked transmission case and gear lube. "Can go via dog team to pole, located eight miles . . . from base but only with limited supplies for survival only. "Requires weasal parts . . . will wait here . . . "Men affected by altitude, and snow bothersome. No wheeled aircraft could use area. "We're stymied till we reach 90 south (the 1'ole's latitude). Do not want to leave anything here unless absolutely necessary." A big Clobeniaster transport plane took off immediately on the eight-hour trip to the Pole with parts for the weasal. They were to be dropped by parachute. But the polar expedition's mechanic, John A. Randall of North-field, Mass., will have a tough job changing the transmission virtually without protection from the cold. If the weasel cannot be repaired, the U sled dogs the Seabees brought with them must pull the bulk of the party's supplies.

Penniman stressed the need of a new building, and deplored the lack of funds for same. Ira IJandall told commissioners and eouncilmon that the museum commission's "raison d'etre is increasing every month. More and more residents are visiting the museum, and all we lack is room," "In the future we hope to hold workshop sessions and round-table discussions. We also hope to increase our usage, by providing the chamber of commerce with adequate publicity," Randall said. Kermit MeGranahan. chairman of the planning commission and of the redevelopment agency, turned the repot t on the latter over to agency member Les Ley. MeGranahan said of the planning commission, "When I took the chairmanship of this commission I stated that 1 hoped we would be more than a mere 'variance' commission." lie began reading a report with the words, "During the first 10 months of 1956 the planning commission considered applications for 28 variances, four amendments and three amendments to the text of the zoning ordinance (prohibiting lumber mills, interim freeze of trailer parks, and the formation of a professional-residential zone." Other work before the commission includes the preliminary general plan; the granted approved of a request for federal aid in the amount of $1 5,400, and cer-tain aspects of the small craft harbor proposed for the Twin Lakes lagoon area. Scofield Thoma spoke for absent chairman of the recreations commission, Dr. F.nrico Raffanti, when he reported to the meeting. Thoma spoke on the development of the Wesllake area and the cooperation of the fish and game department in stocking the lake with several thousand fish. In conjunction with the junior chamber of commerce, the recreation department is working on a community swimming pool. The urban redevelopment area will also come under parks and recreation supervision with the senior citizens headquarters and parks which have been planned for the San Lorenzo Park project, he said. During the (il) day period from June 25 to August 25, more than 32,000 children participated in the city's recreation program and 273 children learned to swim, finished Thoma. Ley, speaking for MeGranahan, and the urban redevelopment agency, said to the commissioners present, "We're flood brothers, and not blood brothers." He cited the city council when he said, "It took only eight days for the council to designate an urban redevelopment agency, and ten more days before an agency-was created." Ley praised Klein for his work with the agency members. "The city manager pushed us along in the right direction, while we were feeling our way in the dark," he said.

There were many of the former ami none of the latter. Progress was the keynote of the meeting. Kvcrybody who spoke boosted their various agencies or commissions, and thanked the council for help and guidance over the year. Tom Twohig, who led off the meeting as chairman of the civil service commission, said the benefits enjoyed by city employes "are on a par compared to cities of similar size. Until recently Santa Cruz was out of line, but recent pay increases helped to bring the city up to standard." "Prior to this time, Santa Cruz had served as a training school for surrounding cities. Due to the cooperation of the city council and city officials the turnover of city employes has dropped considerably over the past year. "I've got the feeling that we are now demanding a higher standard from the city employe, and we're getting it because we work together. The present employer-employe relationship is much healthier now than it has ever been before due to recent 'fringe-benefit' gains." George A. Bcrtolueci, chairman of the Flood Control and Stream Beau tificat ion eomniisswn was not present at the dinner. Hamilton F. Gronen tendered the report: . Gronen, who worked for six years as a flood control engineer in Washington praised City Manager Bob Klein lor his work in the present flood control project in 1 Santa Cruz. Gronen said, "When I first came to the city we spent a cou- ; pie (if thousand dollars a year shoving sand and gravel around the bed of the San Lorenzo river. The situation 'has changed tremendously, even if it took a major j flood to do it. ' "We've arrived at the stage now where something is really on the way. We have a great deal to thank Mr. Klein for. He has the 'energy and ambition to get the job done on the flood control project." Bert Snyder, chairman of the water commission, released a lengthy report detailing water department activities over the last live years, (part of this was ear-'lied in yesterday's Sentinel). In i addition, he told fellow commis-' sioners that they could expect to see a "rise in water rates in the not too distanct future." Operating expenses have increased 60'. 3 per cent over the 'last five years, while operating i revenue has risen only 20.4 per cent, he said. Snyder explained the increase in operating expenses as being ; due to increased pawoll. power : costs and material costs. The pay-' roll has increased by only two employes but salary increases have nearly doubled the payroll in the five year period, "while at the same time, the same rate schedule prevails." Increase in the number of services has risen from 10,611 in 1950-,rH to 11.812 during 1935-56, said Snyder. This shows an overall increase of 11.3 per cent. Millions of gallons of water consumed has jumped from 1446 to 1805, an increase of 24.8 per cent in the amount. The commission has carried on an unceasing search for more water, reported Snyder. A new dam combined with the Ranney Filtration Collector system, is one possibility. Chairman for the library board, Warren Penniman, regretted "there have been so few visitors to the library commission meetings in the main library but we understand that the 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. GA j New!
