4 - Tuesday, Mar. 10, 1959 Redlands Daily facts Citrus, Fifth Parking Lot To Open Tomorrow Redlands shoppers tomorrow will be able to use the new parking district lot at Citrus and Fifth for the first time as a paved and striped lot Missing, however, will be the parking meters since these have yet to be ordered and purchased. Authorization to open the lot" with a two-hour limit was grant ed this morning by the Board of Parking commissioners. Signs will be posted this after noon calling attention to the time limit and enforcement will be accomplished by chalking tires. Joseph P. Colley, street superintendent and engineer, notified the commissioners that the lot had been paved, was being striped today and could be in use before the meters are installed, if desired. The commission agreed that the space should not be wasted and therefore authorized its use on a limited basis. This was the second meeting of the new Board of Parking Com missioners and was primarily aimed at familiarization with financial aspects of parking meters and the district's relationship to these finances. Merritt Submits Data R. P. Merritt, Jr., city finance director, submitted a statement of revenues and expenditures including actual .figures from July 1, 1958 through Feb. 28, 1059 and estimated figures through June 30, 1959. These figures reflected a total revenue of $40,604 with expenditures of $17,519, leaving a revenue factor for the fiscal year of S23, 084. The main question in the minds of the commission was whether the printing of parking tickets ($963) should be charged to the meter fund since fine money does not go back to this fund. Basis for this, as explained by City Treasurer Marion Poyzer, is that the revenue derived from meters is almost directly proportionate to the enforcement applied. Mr. Merritt also submitted a memorandum requested by the commission setting forth the initial agreement on participation of the city in the district. This memo stated that the original agreement called for a con- ribution of 89 per cent of parking meter revenues as of Aug. 31, 1955. This amounted to $39,173. Also agreed upon was an additional con tribution of $40,000. Special Fund Mr. Merritt noted that on Oct. 31, 1958, a special district fund was established and $80,000 less district expenses to date, was transferred to that fund rather than the $79,173 originally promised. One other problem this morn ing was whether all off-street parking requirements should be waived for members of the parking district or whether some limitation should be imposed. _This_ question was posed by Si No School, Teachers To Have Busy Day There will be no school tomorrow for all Redlands students. The teachers, however, will have a busy day. The junior and se nior high teachers will convene in the Grace Mullen Fine Arts Building to hear two distinguished' speakers. Dr. Wally Moore, professor ofj education at Long Beach State College, will deliver the morning, address. Dr. Moore had served the government in Korea and Japan as a periodic consultant for the U.S. Information Agency in Washington. During the year 1957-] 58 he took his sabbatical year as a Fulbright Lecturer in Pakistan, after which he served as a consultant for the State Department in Morocco. During the afternoon session, O. \V. Richard will address the teachers on "People to People," the program initiated by President Eisenhower. Mr. Richard is now in his second year as President of the Orange Empire Council, Boy Scouts of America. As operator of Richard's Lido Market in Newport Beach he has earned the distinction of being named Retailer of the Year throughout the United States and has earned five McCall's Magazine awards for distinguished ad- ertising sen-ices. In 1957 Mr. Richard attended the Milan International Fair at Milan, Italy, as a special delegate appointed by President Eisenhower through the Department of Commerce, addressing large and small groups of people throughout Italy, under the guidance of United States Embassy in Building Dept. Now Part Of Public Works The city building inspection department today lost its identity as a separate department and became a division within the city department of public works. The change was made today at the civic day adjourned meeting of the City Council with youth members participating., Raymond C. Phelps, who has headed the department for the past 10 years, remains in his same capacity-but as a division head instead. City Manager Fred H. Work man explained that the change will mean that permits for all construc-j tion will now be centered in one place and further that engineering inspectors and building inspectors can now be interworked. It will also make it possible toj utilize the new public works radio system in building inspector's cars to permit them to' be dispatched to various jobs without the necessity of reporting back to their office. Although the building department and the department of public works are already together on the upper level of city hall, Mr. Workman said there will likely bej some rearrangement of office! space at some future time. With today's action, the building department joins the engineering department, which covers streets and sewers, and the water depart-, ment in the department of public works which was formed by coun cil action last summer. John Jones, director of the de-] partment of public works, will thus have over-all supervision of these three divisions and division heads will report to him rather than directly to the city'manager, Joseph Colley heads the engineering and street division, and Emmett Lowry the water divi-l sion. the Rome. In addition to the speakers a number of special meetings are scheduled during the day and will include the English Curriculum Steering Committee, Junior High Science Curriculum Committee. Teachers of the Special 8th grade math classes. Algebra I Teachers, and Librarians. There will be a noon luncheon meeting at Cope Junior High School. Teachers of the Elementary School District will have the opportunity to study and compare teaching methods of other schools with the Redlands methods when Present Utility Assessment Policy Defended men -Etam;-jlanning consultant,-^ observe.teaching practices in who' stated, h>-pothetfcaUy, t h a t n ™ °£; r d f^, soie firm within the district could ? a , ch ? rs .,, at f^ 1 ™ *' lUt ™ ]t build such a large establishment f?™*'™ the Upland School Dis trict; Cram School will visit Mis- that it, alone, could conceivably attract enough additional shoppers to absorb all the off-street park ing now provided by the district Mr. Eisner offered to submit to them through the planning department a new ordinance adopted by Covina which sets up stipulations to cover such an eventuality and the Commission agreed i t would be well to study the problem before the new amendment is drafted The City Council, at the Parking commission's request, had directed the Planning commission to initiate proceedings to amend the zoning ordinance to waive the one for one parking requirement for downtown buildings altered, remodeled or reconstructed.

Dr. Franklin Clark Fry, 58, president of the United Lutheran Church in America, was under observation at New Rochelle Hospital today following a kidney attack. The noted Protestant leader was taken to the hospital Monday Specialists were called to examine him for possible surgery, and all of his engagements were cancelled pending outcome of the ex amination. The Rev. Dr. Fry is president of the 50-million-member Lutheran World Federation and chairman of the central committee of the, executive committee of the World Council of Churches. He had been scheduled to preside over a meeting of the presidents of all 32 synods of the United Lutheran Church in Cleveland, Ohio, today. Oral Polio Vaccine Tested SACRAMENTO (UPI> — Two! members of the Board of Equalization suggested today that the Legislature enact a law to permit a continuation of the present practice of assessing private utility property. Board Chairman Paul Leake appeared before a joint legislative committee to oppose a recom mendation contained in a 239-page report by three out-of-state experts which suggested a gradual lowering of the taxation of private utilities. The staff report contended that utility property was assessed at half of^its market value while common or non-utility property 1 was assessed at an average of one-quarter of its cash worth. But_ Xeake - said even if the staffs report were acceptable at face value, he would oppose decreasing utility taxes to make them equal with common property taxes. "Monopoly utilities should recognize the justice of paying assessments at a higher ratio than common property owners," he said. Unique Security Leake contended that state regulation gave utilities "unique security and handsome profits." Leake told the committee that if the current practice of assessments were found to be unconstitutional, "The people should be asked to amend the Constitution and legalize the existing procedure." Board member John W. Lynch also suggested that legal sanction be given to the status quo. In addition, he contended that utility property was assessed on a different basis than common property. He said the Board of Equalization fixed utility property on the basis of earnings, market value of utility stocks and the original cost of the utility property. However, Lynch said common property was assessed by figuring the cost of replacing a building and then deducting depreciation. Lynch said if the method of assessing common property were applied to utilities, the utility assessment rates would be higher than under the present system.

Illegal Parking Of House Trailers May Be Penalized House trailers parked illegally in county areas may soon be sub-] jected to more rigorous enforcement, it was indicated at t h e Board of Supervisors meeting yes terday. Action yesterday was to take enforcement responsibilities from the planning department and place them with the inspectors in the building and safety department. The move was taken with approval of both departments and would be an extension of responsibility of the inspectors. Trailer park owners and supervisors have been critical of lack of enforcement of present county ordinances which restrict trailer parking to recognized trailer parks except during construction or vacation periods. A similar ordinance applies in Redlands. Idaho Survey On Student Cars Vs. Scholarship A study made recently at Madison High school in Rexburg. Ida* ho. throws some light on the current controversy of scholarship vs. student car ownership. The results of the study: No straight "A" students had the use of a car, 15 per cent of the "B" students drove cars to school as did 41 per cent of the "C" students, 71 per cent of the "D" students, and 83 per cent of the "F" students. It should be noted that the Rexburg case is an extreme example. The study, however, does indicate that car ownership has some effect on scholarship. Some viewpoints expressed at the recent Redlands Youth-Adult Conference were that a car, aside from providing transportation, brings a higher social standing, more freedom, and is a sign of maturity.

The study is being made among 65 student families at the University of Minnesota. The subjects live at East Grove Village in St.- Paul. The object Is to learn if the "triple-threat" vaccine is as effective as three separate inoculations of Salk Vaccine, each of which provides immunity against only one type of polio. The cherry-flavored vaccine con tains weakened virus of all three types of polio. It can be given safely to day-old infants. The Committee on Criminal Pro cedure argued the issue for at most three hours Monday — and finally admitted it could not come to a decision. All bills proposing drastic increases in narcotics pen alties were sent to a subcommittee Tor further study. The bill before the committee Monday was the so-called Elks bill. In its original form it provided for a minimum penalty of, 30 years for anyone convicted of transporting, selling, furnishing, administering or giving away opium or cocaine. Backing the proposal was delegation of 66 Southern California businessmen and civic leaders armed with petitions bearing 1,250,000 signatures urging the Legislature to stiffen narcotics penalties. Also testifying in favor of the measure were three experts in the field of narcotics enforcement—| Col. George White of San Fran Cisco and Howard Chappell of Los Angeles, federal narcotics officers, and Ed Petersen of Cbula Vista, retired Navy officer who specializes in narcotics investigations. Petersen said California must "declare war on drug peddlers" and said the only way to do it was put them in jail for a long time.' White described Southern Cali fornia as one of the three "hot spots" in the United States in narcotics trafficking. He blamed the "revolving door" technique of judges meting o u t ceremonies. Dennis is the son of Mrs. Leo Thayer, 1838 Valle Vista drive.
