4 - Friday, Mar. 13, »5> Redlands Daily facts Pay Hike For Norton Wage Board Employes Pay increases up to 22 cents per hour have been approved for most Wage Board employes at Norton Air Force base and for some at March Air Force base, effective April 5. New 65 Mile An Hour Speed Limit Not Yet In Effect The pay schedule change was revealed by the% Army-Air Force Wage Board. Although some classes will gef the top of 22 cents, the average hourly hike for employes in steps 1, 2 and 3 will be 13 cents per hour. This means a weekly raise of from about S5 to nearly $9 for some. Employes at the fourth step of the various grades will adjust to the third step of a newly established *'\V" grade and will not receive a correspondingly high in -j crease. Officials explained that new Air Force policy eliminates the fourth pay step in the Wage Board class and Working Leader categories and that the former 28 grades, will be consolidated into 15 levels. The new Working Leader schedule provides an average increase of 14 cents per hour for steps 1 2 and 3. Again, fourth step will adjust to the new third step for a lesser hike. The new Wage Foreman pay schedule will provide an average increase of 18 cents per hour with fourth step retained for further study. The Board stated that the increases and classification changes will simplify grading and bring pay rates near to those in comparable jobs in other industries. 90 In Long Beach Thursday United Press International Southern California cooled off slightly today after a week-long warm spell, but the weather stayed summer — like with balmy breezes and clear skies. Temperatures over the southern half of the state still were above the seasonal normal, but they dipped slightly from Thursday's record setting heat. Long Beach was the warmest spot in the nation Thursday at 90 degrees. The mercury climbed to 87 in Los Angeles, making it the hottest March 12 on record and the warmest day of the year. Visibility was good throughout the area today except along the coast where morning fog and clouds lowered temperatures. In the Los Angeles Basin, light breezes swept the air clean of eye- irritating smog. Thursday's high temperatures and predicted highs for today included: Los Angeles 87-80, Long Beach 90-81, Santa Monica 74-70, Burbank 87-72, Mount Wilson 6865, Palmdale 76-76, Riverside 8381/ Palm Springs 87-87, Bakery field 80-76, San Diego 81-78, and Santa Barbara 77-73.

Freeman, commander of the California Highway Patrol's San Bernardino Area, declared today. Our officers already are reporting they have stopped motorists for speeding only to have the motorists protest that they were not exceeding 'the new 65 mile an hour limit'," Captain Freeman continued. "They even act offended when the officers explain that the new law is not yet in effect and won't be until the first of next year." j The local CHP commander said the Patrol approves the new law because of the favorable effect it is expected to have in regard to traffic law enforcement and high way safety. "Under the new law, a motorist who exceeds 65 miles an hour will be violating the law, period," Captain Freeman declared. "No longer will there be any question of whether it was 'safe' to drive at the excessive speed. We believe this will tend to curb the 'lead foot' drivers who think it is safe for them to drive at any speed they want. The severity of accidents increases greatly at speeds in ex-| cess of 65 miles an hour, and by cutting down on the comparatively few drivers who now habitually exceed that figure, we believe we will be able to reduce the death toll on our highways.'

Ticksts Now on Sala — 90c Personality Spotlight WILLIAM F. QUINN Territorial Governor Hawaii United Press International HONOLULU — There's a man heading back to Hawaii from Washington today who Congress just voted out of a job. And he is just as happy as can be about it He is William F. Quinn, 39. last appointed governor of the terri tory of Hawaii. He plans on staying in the governor's mansion at historic Washington Place on the edge of Honolulu's downtown section. But he is going to have to get elected to do it this time. That suits Quinn just fine. He has <•: competitive sou], an Irishman's warm charm and a cheering section of wife, Nancy, and six little Quinns. He also seems to have his share of Irish luck. Attracts Ike's Attention Quinn attracted President Eisenhower's attention as a gubernatorial prospect by losing the only territorial election he ran in. That was in 1956 when he tried for a seat in the territorial Senate. A Republican, he lost in a Demo- cractic landslide that year, but he polled more votes than any other Republican. That, plus the combination of his comparative youthfulness, decided the issue in the President's mind. After 19 months in office, Quinn still remains a popular and respected public figure in Hawaii Some criticize him for his quick temper and others for what seems a tendency toward showmanship. He likes to sing and dance and he acted in several community theater productions when he was just plain Quinn, rising young attorney, and not Hawaii's governor. Some compare his personality and career to that of Vice President Richard Nixon, and the two do have their parallels. Rochester, N.Y. Native Quinn is a Harvard Law School graduate and also a graduate of St. Louis University in St. Louis where he was reared. He was born in Rochester, N.Y., in 1919. He is a Roman Catholic. The governor is a curly-haired Mooter still trim of figure. He| served the war as a naval officer. Political observers have said Quinn probably would go a long way if he were the governor of a state instead of a territory. With statehood now assured he is getting his chance to prove it. Dr. Charles D. Howell, associate professor of biology at the University of Redlands, report^ the completion of a study of heart function in an unusually large sampling of 2-J5 dogs. In this study. Howell and his associates had the opportunity to learn whether, under* anesthesia, the amount of blood pumped by the heart is related to the size of the animal. "The surprising result" says Dr. Howell, "was that there was practically no correlation." These facts are reported in his latest publication, "Evaluation of Cardiac Output in Dogs" appearing in the January 1959 issue of the'American Journal of Physiology. He states, "This finding has important implications in research as it influences the manner in which an experiment is controlled." He is continuing research at the university with the aid of senior students. Lonnie McClanahan .j Philip Young, and Dave Harlan, j The purpose of this research is. to uncover more basic data about the relationship of physiological variations to species differences and to environmental stress. Dr. Howell and his staff of three students had to collect more than 200 lizards from nearby canyons last spring and summer, to carry on this research. The group is working on the effects of low and high temperature and the lack of water on the heart on survival and on organ growth. They are also investigating other problems concerned with blood cloUing and the ability of the blood to carry oxygen. Some of the scientific equipment used in this research at Redlands was obtained by means of a grant made last year by the National Institute of Health. The equip ment was first put to use last May and the following summer. Much of the previous research done by Dr. Howell, on the cardiovascular and respiratory characteristics in animals, was carried on at the University of Iowa where he was a National Public Health Fellow under the NIH. CARDINALS "BEWARE COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI)-House Speaker James Lantz brought down his gavel hard Tuesday to close off debate on a bill to allow shooting of cardinals, the official state bird, as "greedy and noisy." One lawmaker was trying to] amend the bill to make it read' St. Louis Cardinals." 400 SC Students Mark Spring With Water Fight LOS ANGELES (UPI) — Some 400 University of Southern Cali fornia students marked the coming of an early spring Thursday night with a water fight along fraternity row. School officials blamed a heat wave for the near riot. Students doused themselves.and onlookers, with garden hoses and water- filled bags. The melee began when some fraternity members dragged a coed from the Alpha Phi sorority house and drenched her with buckets of water. Others joined in and soon the street was alive with soaked students. Those on the ground battled with hoses and others tossed wa-| ter-filled paper bags and balloons from upper story windows. The only damage was to a palm tree which was set afire. | Police stood by, but took no action. The crowds dispersed when a school official appeared. The downtown temperature hit 87 degrees Thursday to set a new mark for March 12. The week-long heat wave has; extended throughout most of i Southern California. It was 90 in Long Beach—warmest in the nation—and 81 in San Diego. Ford Plans To Make Economy Car In 1960 DETROIT (UPI) -Ford Motor Co. told its stockholders today it plans to introduce a small American-built economy car sometime during the 1960 model year "barring changes in the market or oth er circumstances." The announcement was the first official statement by a major automobile company which indicated it definitely was convinced at this time at least, that there was a market for smaller cars. I Ford, along with General Motors and Chrysler, previously revealed they were developing a small car which would be introduced if there were indications the market for them existed. But all of the companies insisted .they still were not convinced the market existed. Ford, in effect, now is saying the market exists and unless it disappears again. Ford will enter the market. Redlands Motors To Offer Taunus Economy Car Line The complete line of Taunus automobiles has been added those already carried by Redlands Motors, Inc., 405 West Central avenue, it was announced today by James Glaze, owner of the firm. The Taunus is an economy car from Ford of Germany with per-| formance of up to 35 miles to the gallon and room for five passengers. Mr. Glaze says the Taunus 17 M is a precision-built economy car — two feet shorter than conven tional cars and nearly a foot less in width. It's amazing the difference this smaller size makes in easier handling, easier parking and less car to maintain and service. Yet inside there's sprawling] out comfort for five and a vacation-size' luggage compartment that holds 15 cubic feet of luggage, according to Mr. Glaze. The Taunus presents German ingenuity and thoroughness in everyj detail of the six models. It has self adjusting springs, telescopic shock absorbers. The German made engine has four cylinders and is rated at 67 h.p. This econ omy car has numerous luxury| items in its appointments. It has cither three or four speed transmissions.

Mr. Glaze in announcing the Taunus line said he has complete sales and service for the Taunus Combining this with his lines of Lincoln, Mercury and Edsel. he offers automobiles in all price ranges. CITRUS OUTLOOK By W. A. Brunton WORMY CAR FAREHAM, England (UPI) Michael Delaney was fined six pounds ($16.80) for driving a car afflicted with worms. Delaney said the worms got Jn the wooden door of his 1929 car and he had to tie it to the steering column with wire. He was charged with having a dangerous door. It is a novel experience to have Florida shippers complaining about cheap competition from California navels and a complete reversal of the usual pattern 'at this season of the year. Historically, Florida shippers are crowding the fresh fruit markets with the cleanup of their early and mid- season varieties along with their, new crop valencias, resulting in two prices which offer stiff competition to California navels. This year, however, the situation is completely reversed and California has kept the markets plugged and selling at prices that are considerably below what wholesaler, retailer and consumer are accustomed to paying for navels. As a result Florida fresh fruit shipments are much lighter than normal as any heavier shipments would result in prices that would be less than processors are paying for fruit for juice and concentrate. That there is a strong demand on the part of processors in Florida is a real blessing to California navel shippers. With the all- time record crop in Central California and the much larger than anticipated crop here in the south some disastrously low prices would have resulted had Florida moved her usual volume in fresh fruit channels. The processors in Florida have put a floor under the market that has been a tremendous assist to the entire industry. The navel market has been ragged the past two weeks due largely to many cars arriving in poor condition. This is true not only of fruit from Tulare County* that is being heavily discounted due to staining, puffing and general overmaturity, but also to cars from the south that are arriving as a result of the rains last month. This condition develops after the fruit is packed and is almost inr possible to detect on the grading table. Many of these cars are winding up in the auctions and are having'a depressing effect on the averages The advent of warmer weather is making the breakdown more evident and it is felt shipments now going out will not show this condition on arrival in the markets. The lowering of grade and outright elimination has been greatly accentuated in the past few weeks and will probably increase as the season advances. For this reason shippers generally are resigned to maximum movement rather than holding back in the hope for higher prices. This is particularly true in Central California where it is felt that unless the remainder of the crop is disposed of this month it may never be shipped. Advanced maturity in the south may also be a serious problem before the season is over. Another increase in the navel crop estimate was announced yesterday by the field department of the Navel Orange Administrative Committee. An increase of 1000 cars in Southern California, bringing the season estimate to 14.000 carloads is a far cry from the original estimate of 9,000 cars made at the beginning of the sea son. In Central California the estimate was raised 500 cars to bring the total up to 20,500. Sales in the auctions last week amounted to 185 cars selling at prices averaging $3.24 per carton delivered, which was down 17 cents from the previous week on a volume of 149 cars. A year ago at this time navels were averaging just one dollar per carton Santa Fe May Keep Two Stations Open The Sante Fe Railway, which has been considering closing its East Highlands and Mentone stations, said today it may be able to keep them open under a dual operation with one man for both stations. Two other stations at Ludlow and Highland have been posted for closing since January and will come up for hearing before the Public Utilities commission April 3. - ' A general lack of business is generally cited as the reason behind all, the possible closures although the company is officially on record as stating that the stations are no longer necessary for public convenience. The informal proposal by which the Mentone and East Highlands station might remain open is expected to be formalized by the railway on Monday. The Santa Fe said it would provide communications between the two stations which would make it easy for a customer at cither point to reach the agent if he happened to be at the other branch. with fruit showing skin breakdown above current prices. Total sales TOO MANY WIVES MANILA (UPI) — The Philippines has 102 incumbent male members in its House of Representatives. That's why the Manila Daily Bulletin asked why the "congressional ladies' circle, composed exclusively of wives of representatives, has 133 names on its roster." in all markets last week amounted to 1312 carloads whi-h brought an average price of $2.26 per carton f.o.b. shipping point. Prorate for next week has been set at 650 cars for Tulare County and 750 cars for Central California, but it is expected this will be increased during the shipping period if demand, warrants. In view of the continuing increases in the estimates it will be imperative that every car be moved that the market will take at going prices. * We're giving a real Redlands welcome to the newest car in America!
