4 - May. Mir. 20. 1959 Rutland* Daily facts Fourth St. Parking Spaces To Be Revised Parking spaces along Fourth street between Vine and Olive will be revamped to make them standard size, the Traffic commission decided yesterday afternoon. Residents of the .street had complained that cars parked on Fourth "hung over" into driveways blocking access Stanley R. Bowen. commission chairman and chief of police, said many complaints had been lodged with the police department b u t that as long as the wheels were within the stall markings, citations for improper parking could not be issued. Joseph P. Colley, city engineer, said his survey disclosed that the problem was in substandard size of the spaces. Some, he said, are as small as 15 feet and the commission agreed that today's cars cannot fit in such a small space. Hence, it was agreed that the spaces should be repainted to a standard size despite the fact that •"about four stalls"' will probably be eliminated as a result. 1 Mr. Colley noted, however, that this will only be a temporary measure since Fourth street is scheduled to be widened this summer and new. wider driveway approaches installed at that time. The commission also recommended to the City Council? that "no parking" for loading or any other purpose be permitted in the alley between Fifth and Sixth which serves as exit for the new parking district lot. Complaints have already been received by motorists trapped in the lot when trucks have been parked at both ends of the alley. Loading Space In conjunction with that recommendation, the commission recommended that a loading space be provided just north of the alley on Fifth street and that the Jean Calvert Elected President Of Women At UR Jean Calvert was elected president of the Associated Women | Students of the University of Redlands yesterday, to serve during the coming school year. Also chosen were: Linda Arthur, vice-president: Ruby Hickel, secretary - treasurer; and Jean Camfield, dorm board president. The announcement was made at dinner last evening in the Commons when the newly chosen officers arrived carrying long-stemmed roses as a symbol of their election. Miss Calvert, graduate of North Phoenix High school in Arizona, is majoring in history and is a , J member of Alpha Xi Omicron sorority. She was Sophomore class secretary last yar and is presently secretary-treasurer o f Associated Women Students. A significant proposal on the AWS ballot was to establish the organization on a self-sufficient basis. The resultant passage of this constitutional amendment means that the AWS feel they can do without the $250 "lat has hereto-fore been forthcoming from student body funds. .

Discovered that the reported in adequacy of the warning system at'the Santa Fe tracks on Church street had been previously investigated in Dec. 1957 and the railroad had advised the city that the two auto warning bells had teen deemed satisfactory upon examination by the Public Utilities commission. Aware of Hazard Was advised by the State Division of Highways that it is aware of the hazards of the Highway 99- Oak street intersection and that a continuing study of this intersection as well as those at Highland and Palm is under way to see what improvements could o r should be made "at this time." Agreed to initiate an engineering study of the intersection of Highland avenue and Redlands street to determine if any changes should b? made because of increasing traffic. Indicated, unofficially, that i f representatives of the driver training department at the high school have traffic saf?ty questions, they could be brought to the commission by letter or in person but that a representative of that group on the commission itself would probably serve no purpose in the overall function of the commission.

Before entering the Navy in July 1958, he graduated from Redlands High School. Yucaipa School Cafeteria Program Praised Mrs. Lucretia Ayers, represen-j tative from'the state Department of Education, praised the cafeteria program of the Yucaipa school district in her official report. Mrs. Ayers visited Yucaipa schools recently to audit the cafeteria books and evaluate performance. Her report stated in part: "The cafeterias in the Yucaipa School District are extremely efficient. It is hard to believe that they are entirely self-supporting with no monies being spent from the General Fund. In most districts in California, some monies from the General Fund are put into the Cafeteria Fund to help support it. The lunch served meets all the standards set up by the State Department. 'The problem of the Oak Glen cafeteria was discussed, and even though it is losing money, it would be the recommendation of the State Department that the school subsidize this particular cafeteria in order that the children would have opportunity to have a hot lunch if they so desire." "The following figures are based on the January lunch program. State Yucaipa Avg.

PY 3-2505 Work Starts On Orange, Citrus Traffic Signal Installation of the new four-way traffic signal at Citrus and Orange is under way by Allen Engineering company which said today it expects to complete its work "within three weeks." The firm was awarded a contract for some. $5800 for the signal installation several weeks age by the City Council. It will be a standard four-way signal and will be placed in operation as soon as the installation is a complete, according to John Johcs, director of the department of public works. This will be onfy the third traffic light in the city which is not on a state highway. The first was at Orange and State and the second is at Church and Citrus by the high school and junior high Planning for this Citrus-Orange signal started nearly two years ago when approval of the State Division of Highways was requested. The fourth traffic light is al ready being planned for Brookside and Center and Mr. Jones said today h.e expects to recommend it in his budget for next fiscal year. This light, which he expects to lie an "actuated" type light by Center street traffic, is still subject to State approval.

Bruer to operate a beauty shop in her home on California street in Yucaipa was denied by the County Planning commission yesterday afternoon. Commissioner Will Collett suggested later, however, that the commission make a study of home occupations in order to possibly define them in the new zoning ordinance now being considered. CITRUS OUTLOOK By W. A. Brunton The amazing demand for navels that has prevailed the past num ber of weeks continued unabated this week. Prorate set at 1400 cars for the current week was increased by 130 cars on Wednesday to enable shippers to take care of orders that were pouring in for the Easter business. The week prior to Easter usually sees the most active trading of the season and shippers were anxious to capitalize on it to the fullest extent. Prices continued steady but there was no move to get the market up. Instead, it appeared the thinking of the major part of the industry was to hold the price line and move the maximum volume the market would take at the going level. It is a bitter pill for California navel shippers to swallow to sec Florida oranges bringing almost fifty cents per carton more for its fruit than California is receiving when the situation is usually the exact opposite. Florida, however, is shipping only half the volume that is going out of California, and for this navel shippers are very thankful The ban on color added that has been in effect the past several weeks has probably had considerable influence on shipments from Florida, but now that this process has been legalized by congress it is expected shipments will increase since there are over 20.000 more cars to move from that state than there were a year ago at this time. Of more concern to Southern California navel shippers than current marketing problems is the fact valencias are already beginning to move from both Tulare and Orange counties. While the volume is small it nevertheless is an indication that early maturity of the summer variety will mean that valencias soon will be offering competition to navels. With some 20 per cent of the Tulare County and nearly 50 per cent of the Southern California navel crop remaining to be shipped it goes without saying that shippers are apprehensive over the future of the navel deal. The redeeming factor may be that Valencia sizes in both north and south are very small and that the trade will continue to prefer navels as long as they can be delivered in sound condition. Any small navels, however, will be forsaken as the prepackages and small markets that take these will almost certainly swing .over t o valencias. Already outlets that specialize in packaging citrus in consumer size bags are-inquiring for valencias, claiming that navels are too mature and deyelop decay too rapidly after being tagged. Auction sales in the eight terminal markets last week amount ed to 211 cars of navels which sold at prices averaging $3.10 per carton delivered. The week previous sales were 183 cars selling at prices averaging $3.24 per carton. The corresponding week a year ago 136 cars brought a n average price of $4.43 per carton. Florida sold 131 cars of oranges last week at prices averaging $6.98 per standard box. Total sales of all grades, sizes and containers last week amounted to 1402 cars' which brought prices averaging $2.25 per carton f.o.b. shipping point. Prorate for next week has been set at 1400 cars which will be divided 800 cars to the south and 600 cars to the north. If demand continues as active, as it is this week the prorate will undoubtedly be increased during the shipping period as members of the Navel Orange Administrative Committee have expressed themselves as being anxious to move every box the market will take.' Joint Use Of Railroad Depots Seen The "dualization" of the Men tone and East Highlands freight offices of the Santa Fe railway is clready posted to become effective April 16 unless formal protests are filed with the Public Utilities commission, it was reported today by A. K. Johnson, division superintendent for the railway. He said a notice to that effect was posted at both stations Mar. 16 to become an actuality 30 days hence. He explained that the "duali zation" means the offices will be kept in operation by one man on a "flexible" alternating schedule but that some method of phone service will be instituted so that the agent can provide service regardless of which station he happens to be in.

Brown Feels Tax Plan Will Succeed (Continued from Page one) to impose a slightly greater burden on those who have better ability to pay." Possible Revenues Computed The cigarette tax proposal would produce 68 million dollars a year income for the state. The income tax would bring in an additional $71,400,000 a year, about t w o thirds of it from persons with incomes over $25,000 a year although single persons and childless couples with incomes under $10,000 also will feel the bite. MacBride said the success of the first two tax proposals would determine handling of the rest. The GOP caucus also was presented with a plan by Assemblyman Glenn E. Coolidge (R-Felton) to "give the governor everything he wants in the budget" and still obtain near balance without new taxes. Coolidge said he bad a series of 23 bills prepared for introduction today which would save 88 million dollars, 45 million of it by speeding up the collection of franchise taxes. Governor Urges SI Hour Farm Wage Minimum (Continued from Page one) . bor force out of work because of increased mechanization, cause a terrific migration of farm laborers to California, raise the cost of food beyond comprehension and throw huge relief burden on welfare agencies." The rebuttal was handled by John F. Henning, a former AFL- CIO labor leader appointed by Brown to head the Department of Industrial Relations. "We should never try to remako this state in the image of Alabama, Arkansas or Mississippi," Henning said. Assemblyman Augustus F. Hawkins (D-Los Angeles), author of the bill, chimed in by adding: "I don't think anyone can survive) in human decency on less than $1.25 an hour. The wage we're talking about in this bill is less than wha* a person would get on relief." About People Cyrus J. (Cy) Willis, 1*33 E.
