A wide flagstone terrace would grace this side of the building. The plan will be submitted to the Legion membership March 17.

Rentals, Tool SERRS Fire Damages Highland School Pupils of Pacific elementary school in Highland were in class today "almost as usual" despite a fire Saturday morning which destroyed one classroom building and damaged another. Both structures were a part of the original school a»d were erected in 1910. Investigators said the fire was apparently a result of this antiquated design since they had gas heaters which projected into the classrooms. They said papers had apparently been left on top of the healers and caught fire when the thermostat clicked them on during the early morning hours. | Firemen of the State Division! of Forestry at Highland received the alarm at 4:48 a.m. and units from Highland. San Bernardino, Loma Linda and Mentone answered the call.

Emergency arrangements for class "as usual" today were made by the Highland school board at a special weekend session. Some students were shifted to other classrooms while others were shifted to rented quarters at the Highland Methodist church.

Harry Allison Retired County Clerk Dies At 77 Harry L. Allison, whose career in public service spanned more than half a century, will receive his final tribute from his legion of friends at funeral services tomorrow at 10 a.m. Mr. Allison, who retired in January after 56 years in county service, died of a heart attack at 4:30 Saturday afternoon. He was 77. His wife, Bonnie, wai at his bedside. Although known mainly for his 39 years as San Bernardino coun ty clerk, Mr. Allison had previ otisly served 10 years as county recorder and seven years as San Bernardino city clerk. Model Office Because his philosophy held courtesy and service to the public above all else, his office be came a model for other county offices. That the public held him in high esteem is shown by his lack of opposition. During his entire 39 years as county clerk, an elective position, only twice was he opposed and both times he was overwhelmingly returned to office. Only days after a retirement party in his honor last January' sponsored by the County Bar association, he suffered several minor strokes and never regained his health. A native of Clinton. Mo., where he was born Oct. 8, 1832, he moved with his parents to San Bernardino as a baby and remain ed there the rest of his life. His first job after completing public school was with the old Times-Index newspaper in San Bernardino where he remained for four years before becoming a telegrapher for the Postal Tele graph company. Ventures Into Politics In May. 1903. he ventured into the political arena and was elect ed San Bernardino city clerk. He was re-elected in 1907 and serve.-? until 1910 when he was elected county recorder. During his long tenure in coun ty office, he became known as a friend and counselor for new- county officials and employes as well as fledgling attorneys. A man beset by personal mis haps, he lost his left leg from an infection when he was only 20 years old and a few years later misfortune struck again when he lost his right arm. Despite these crippling losses he still managed to indulge in skeet shooting, his favorite sport and holding a standard 12-sauge with his left arm could still hit 97 of 100 birds at his prime. Mr. Allison was a charter mem ber of the Elks lodge of San Ber nardino, was a member of the Clerks association of California and a member of the Holy Rosary Catholic church. Survivors include his wife. NAMED NEW ENVOY KARACHI. Pakistan (UPI) Agha Hilaly, 43, is Pakistan's new- ambassador to the Soviet Union His appointment was announced by the government Sunday.
