t 4 - Wed., Mar. 11, 1959 Redlands Daily Facts JOSEPH HARVEY two and also Planners Tell County To Ask Zone Change If the county wishes to place its Redlands branch building at Center and Pine it should request a zone change rather than a conditional use permit, the Planning commission decided yesterday afternoon. The county confirmed last week that it would request permission to build on 3'i acres at that location and the City Council waived the usual filing fees. The matter was not scheduled until the Mar. 24 meeting, however, the commission was asked by Planning Director Sid Conner what type of action they would like to have presented. After deliberation, it was decided that rather than do "piecemeal'" zoning, the county should ask for a change of zone for administration and professional and that the master plan should be amended simultaneously, if the location is approved. Public hearings before both the Planning commission Mar. 24 and the City Council later must be held before a zone change can be accomplished. Mr. Conner told the commission that the complete story of the Ontario branch building was not stated in previous newspaper stories. He said that the area about the county building was indeed residential when the building w a s erected but that since then the district of 520.000 homes has changed to commercial on corners and administrative professional on the other. Variance Denied The commission yesterday discussed at considerable length a variance request by Donald Van Wicren to eliminate the provision for a loading zone in the alley behind the new building he proposes to construct on the northwest corner of Fifth and Citrus. Letters from Clifford Brewster and Lloyd Hulbert. property owners in the area, favored granting the variance, while the Imperial Hardware company said it believed loading space should be a requirement of all new buildings Robert Kahl also favored it. The letter from Imperial indicated it was still endeavoring to purchase adjacent property so that it can provide off-alley loading space. Robert Van Roekel, speaking for Mr. Van Wieren, stated that the building is designed for office use only, not retail, and that no load- ,-.g space wouid be required by the planned tenants. The eventual action by the commission was to deny the variance since it said only the City Council is empowered to enter into restrictive convenants running with the land. Commissioners James Butler and John Runkel had indicated it might be logical to permit the variance subject to a covenant providing that the structure, be built so that a loading area ~ could later be provided ifj any of the offices were later converted to retail use. In other actions, the Commis sion: Approved a lot split for D. Lowell Wells at the southeast corner of Citrus and University. Approved a proposed roof sign design for Empire Bowl on West Colton avenue provided the sign be lowered some three feet to comply with the city's sign ordinance. Granted a home occupation permit for Edwin M. Brose to perform electrical estimating at his home, 435 Walnut avenue.

HOLLIMAN "THE TRAP" TECHNICOLOR' Senate Votes Four-Year Draft Extension WASHINGTON lUPI) — The Senate today overwhelmingly approved a four-year extension of the draft law after rejecting a move to limit it to two years. The vote was 90 to 1, with Sen. William Langer (R-N.DJ casting the lone dissent. Final approval of the bill came after Armed Services Chairman Richard B. Russell iD-Ga.-> told his colleagues they should "let the word go out from the Senate chamber that the United States means what it says when it says we must maintain the military strength of the United States." He said Congress could do nothing else in view of the Berlin crisis except extend the draft for another four years. The Senate beat down by wide margins an effort to cut the extension to two years and to set up a military manpower commission to study the draft and possible "alternatives." Senate approval sent the bill back to the House which had passed a similar extension earlier. In addition to continuing the present machinery for drafting young men aged 18 through 26, the senate bill would: —Continue the suspension of pre-Korean peacetime ceilings on the strength of the armed services. ' —Continue the payment of benefits to dependents of certain enlisted men. —Continue the authority to draft physicians and dentists. —Provide authority for the continued payment of extra pay, at the rate of $100 to $250 monthly, to newly commissioned physicians and dentists and S100 a month ad ditional pay for veterinarians. COUNTERFEIT POUND NOTE LONDON lUPH — Detectives from Scotland Yard investigated today the passing of a bill over a House of Commons bar. It was a counterfeit one pound note. Two Street Projects To Start Soon The widening and resurfacing of San Mateo between Highland ave nue and Walnut and of Fourth street between Olive avenue and Citrus avenue will be under way before the end of this fiscal yar, Director of Public Works John Jones stated today. In addition, the San Mateo-Cypress intersection will be completely rejuvenated and San Ma teo will be widened from Cypress north to the limits of Smiley school property. The work on all Ihese projects will be financed from State gas tax apportionments. Some $35,500 is allocated for all the work on San Mateo street and another $22,500 for the Fourth street work, according to Mr. Jones. Projects Consolidated The subject of street apportionments arose at the civic day City Council meeting yesterday when the city manager asked approval of a supplemental agreement with the state for the rest of this fiscal year. This agreement basically, consolidated several projects and will provide for the San Mateo widening by Smiley school and the Cypress intersection work which had not been programmed for this year. The Fourth street and upper San Mateo jobs were already budgeted for this fiscal year. The youth Council, chairmanned by Susie Simmonds as mayor, approved the supplemental agreement. Construction In May Mr. Jones stated today that the work on San Mateo street is expected to be ready to go to bid within six weeks with actual con struction anticipated in May. The link from Highland to Walnut will consist of considerable filling to reduce the grade at the Highland avenue intersection and will also include covering t h e storm drain on the east side to permit widening to 40 feet. It will "flare out" where it joins the Gordon Fields tract which is wider than the proposed link. Completion of these last two San Mateo projects will mark the end of a several-year program of improvement to the street which is designated as a major north-south artery. Additional widening may be done at some future time. Fourth Street Widening The work on Fourth street will involve eliminating the parkways to provide a full 40-feet street. This highly congested street will then have sufficient width to accommodate two full lanes of traffic and parking on both sides ofj the street. At present it is a ticklish proposition for two cars to pass when cars are parked on both sides. Mr. Jones said present plans calf for this project to be undei way in June after completion of the San Mateo work. In other actions yesterday afternoon the Youth City Council which consisted of Karl Phillips Howard Elliott, Tom Winn, Frank Budd and Mayor Simmonds, took the following actions: Deferred to the department of public works an oral petition by Mike Moseley, acting youth postmaster, requesting the city to improve Eureka street by the post office where chuckholes have been getting increasingly deeper. Authorized the director of public works to attend a two-day conference April 16-17 in Monterey for public works administrators. Sponsored by the League of Cities, it is the first conference of its kind. Lot Split Approved Approved a final lot split for John Hinkle for property at 1323 Fifth avenue, presented by John Murdock, acting youth planning director. Directed the city manager and police chief to take care of two parking tickets "for today only" issued to Councilmen Elliott and Winn while attending earlier youth day sessions. This was amended to include Councilman Budd and Paul Butler, acting city manager, "in case" they received tickets while the council was in session Agreed that Carl Reimuller might be allowed to transfer cred it for 23 shares of water stock at ready sold to the city to a new owner but would have to make specific request to the council at a later meeting.

PY M50S Badges reading "Official Sidewalk Superintendent" will be issued visitors at the 1959 National Orange Show, April 23-May 3, in San Bernardino, watching the ac tual five-day .erection of an aluminum dome of striking and unique design which will be construct ed by the Redlands contracting firm of Forsberg and Gregory, Inc. The dome — when completed with its front entrance structure and landscaping with a huge pool — will be the main exhibition hall of the exposition's rapidly expanding L"'ernational Spring Flower Festival. Contract for the erection of the 125-foot diameter, stressed-s k i n aluminum dome developed by Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical corporation has been awarded to George C. Forsberg. president, and Arthur Gregory, Jr., for their low bid of $210,352, Howard Holcomb, president of the National Orange Show announced this week. "Official Sidewalk Superinten-I dent" badges will be issued by the| contractors who are taking this means of publicizing their part in this unusual event: A huge shell consisting of 365 curved, diamond-shaped alumni- num panels integrally strength ened with aluminum struts, the dome requires no support other than anchoring piers around the perimeter and will provide a clear span, enclosed area of 11,500 square feet. "The dome, with its striking and unique design, will be a major attraction on our grounds," said G. Walter Glass, secretary-man ager of the National Orange Show 'It will provide a dramatic set ting for displays and give us greater flexibility in arranging exhibits." A crescent shaped entrance en closure containing offices, storage space and public facilities will be located at the front of the dome facing a landscaped terrace. Lighting fixtures will be installed to display the structure and to create artistic effects in the exhibits. These and other special features for the project have been designed by H. Pinkncy, landscape architect, and Leland Evison, A.I.A. Associates. The dome will be the second of its type constructed on the West Coast. The first was erected in January at Palomar College in San Marcos, California, for a gym-i nasium. Similar domes are being used in other sections of the country and in Hawaii for civic auditoriums, theatres, a bank, and an industrial facility. A 200-foot diameter Kaiser Aluminum dome will be built in Moscow, Russia, late this summer for" a cultural and industrial exhibition by the United States. Principal advantages of the dome are its clear-span construction. Its design :s based on complex geodesic structural principles and stressed-skin approaches similar to those used in the aircraft industry. Methods used to erect the dome are as unique as the structure itself. The diamond shaped panels are bolted together around a portable mast which protrudes through the center and peak of the dome's shell. As panels are added and the diameter of the dome increas es, it is progressively raised up into the air by a system of cables and winches operated on a mast. When the dome is completed, it is raised onto piers around the peri meter and anchored with bolts The mast is then dismantled and removed and the hole at the top is covered with ventilator panels. The dome. Glass explained, is the major unit of a $300,000 improvement program currently under way on the National Orange Show grounds. John Deere Co.
