Ed Toylor moires sfafemenf Grafton Hills college to be built on time (>aftoa Hnis college win be built on the present schedule, n- gardless cl recent doubtful dec-' iarations by advisory people. This reassuring statement came today from Edward F. Taylor, of Redlands, chairman of the board of trustees of San Bernardino Valley college. !He continued: 'We expect students to be attending classes on the Crafton Hills campus in the fall of 1972. The first buildings should be open then. Any suggestion of a delay in the college construe- tion, or that it may not be built, has no foundation in fact We regard the recent report of the Coordinatmg Council for Higher Education, wluch con­ tained such a suggestion, as reaching canduaons generally applicable on the State level, and establishing broad guidelines for districts throughout California. Such staff studies often are not intended to take into account the details of local needs and conditions. "For example, the proximity of the main San Bernardino Valley College structures to the Bunker Hill earthquake fault and the lack of vacant surrounding lands severely restrict future expansion of the San Bernardino campus, and make Crafton Hills an essential addition to the college system, which must serve as many as 20.000 students. The Crafton Hills campus does not de- • pend upon State fimds, wliich ia the principal area of concern to the Coordinating Council for : Higher Education. The Council has no authority to stop or hold uo the construction of Craflon Hills CcIIrge. It may advise the ligiflature as to requirements 3f phjsical plants for California cdiica.'ional institutions, but its influence extends primarily to projects wholly dependent upon Slate funding. "From the outset of the Crafton Hills program, which was given impetus when the voters approved the multi-million dol- . lar tax override, we havc'taken pride in the independence of action and Iccal incentive underlying Crafton Hills College." .Water ready for new facility VISITING 'BOMBEROS' — One of five Me.>dcan firemen or "Bomberos" billeted at the Redlands Fire Department this week while they attend a training school in Colton strums a guitar for the enjoyment of Redlands firemen.

The committee asked the superintendent to report at the next meeting, March 4, on an adaptation of the so-called Berkeley Plan, to Redlands. In a news release of January 17, 1968 the Berkeley district gave this brief summary of what is actually a many-faceted program: "The Berkeley integratioo plan, which will involve the entire elementary school popula tion of 8,900 students in grades kindergarten through 6, calls for two-way busing throughout four zones of schools. Termed the 'K- 3. 4-6 plan', it will work like this: "Children in grades kindergarten through 3 win be bused bom South and West Berkeley, predominately Negro, to the schools in the bills, now primarily Caucasian. Children in grades 4 through 6 will be bused from the hill areas to the schools in South and West Berkeley. Approximately 3385 students will be bused." in Mentone.
