FREE ESTIMATE Mobil A DON SIGNOR MOBIL SERVICE-GARAGE mtgknr H t n. vi«w Mkril FT t-ilK 50 inches of a water entitlement per meter. This legal entitlement was one granted years ago to him and others who owned a well in the vicinity of reservoir canyon which was rendered economically unfeasible when the city developed its wells in the canyon. But in addition to these water entitlements, Mr. Deshler was required to sign an agreement that whenever any move toward annexation in this particular locality developed, he would favor it. Favors Annexation To this Mr. Deshler lent his wholehearted endorsement stating that he would like to see the area annexed "immediately" if it were possible. The Council indicated it felt an nexation westerly to Alabama street would make a logical boundary line for the city. This boundary would extend all the way south to Barton road and would include Brookside Dairy and the Dee and Walt Service station. Annexation, however, is something which inhabitants and owners request rather than the city. Annexation became a question in connection with the Deshler water request several weeks ago when City Manager Fred Workman posed the question "if we grant water connections to outside-city business sites, what other than fire and police protec tion and sewer service could we offer as an inducement for an nexation at some future time?" Parker Votes No The final vote on the Deshler request was 4-1 with Councilman Charles C. Parker registering the "no" vote. He contended that extension of water service to business property outside the city put the city in the position of encouraging outside business development, especially at this particular intersection. In other actions at an adjourn-, ed meeting at 8 a.m. today, the Council Still on water problems, agreed that they would not negotiate with the Free Methodist church for 32 inches of "B" contract water since it will someday revert to the city, such water has never been purchased by the city and n o market value has ever been set oo it. Bids For Pipeline Referred to the manager's office for study a series of bids] for pipe and installation of a water line to serve Grand Central Rocket company. The combination bids, ranged from a low of $28,200 to a high of $59,870. AoopSa a resolution*" urging the State legislature to approve a bill which would add one cent to the gas tax. This would be split .6 for cities and .4 for the county and could be used on streets other than major dty streets. It was estimated this could mean about $80-100,000 additional for Redlands street work. Approved a three-year lease at $50 per year for permission to graze cattle on city property south of Mill creek road in the upper Men tone area. Floral Plunge Filter Approved a recommendation of; the manager's office for installation of a filter system at Floral plunge expected to cost about $6500. In conjunction with this, authorized the calling of bids for the project and the negotiation of a 5-7 year lease with some private swimming club calling for' payment of about $2,000 per year in return for the added health measure of the filter system. Agreed with the manager's office that present planning for the new Little League field should'be aimed at replacing facilities only equal to what exist now because' of high maintenance costs but come up with a master plan for ultimate development of the some 10-acre site for some future date. Discussed briefly the purchase of an unidentified property within the confines of the civic center area and agreed to continue negotiations. Banana Crop Stolen, Tree Damaged While N. Glen Hull was awaiting his banana crop to ripen, vandals stole the bananas and damaged the tree.

A picture of Mr. Hull and his 24 bananas on the tree appeared in the Facts only a week ago. Police listed the damage to his property at $50. E. L Truesdail Hit By Car On Olive Avenue Ernest L.

State Real Estate President Speaks Here "Now is the time for action to halt the continuously increasing tax burden on real estate," said lames B. Clayton Jr., president of the California Real Estate As sociatipn. Mr. Clayton spoke today before a joint luncheon meeting of the Redlands and Yucaipa R e a 11 Boards at the Masonic Hall here. There were 100 present. Don Figgins, president of the local board, presided. O t h e guests included H. Jackson Pontius, executive vice-president of the state association. Real Estate Commissioner Wynn Savage of San Bernardino, and Harry Wilson, mayor of Redlands. Clayton urged realtors to make every effort this year to encourage increased expansion of industry in communities throughout the state, thereby providing employment and the necessary support of the tax structure so badly need ed in California today. He expressed enthusiasm over Governor Pat Brown's proposed program to bring new industry into the state and said that the association has pledged its active support of the program. The realty official said that the California Real Estate Association encourages urban renewal proj ects that are supported entirely by local funds. He stated that the association plans several urban re newal and redevelopment conferences in the state this year. "Urban renewal that uses federal and state funds tends to create irresponsibility and bcaura cracy, causing costs to soar and often resulting in the drawing of) plans for extravagantly beautiful out highly impractical projects that do not solve the problems for which they were originally plan- ued," said Clayton. The president of the association which represents 161 real estate boards in the state, told of the work of its legislative committee in studying measures designed to give citizens the right to approvt new tax increases and also to establish a maximum debt in California. Clayton also said that they were studying legislation which will offer housing to our growing population of senior citizens under the free enterprise system, thus providing them an opportunity t o maintain an estate and a place in which to live without state and federal subsidies. Commenting on the current busi ness trend, Clayton noted that real estate activity was at a high lev el throughout the state and that 1959 promises to be one of the best years for the industry in the state's history.

Mcrrtress and Upholstery Needs & Repairs— BANNER Mattress & Upholstery m C«|en PY 3-5131 SACRAMENTO (UPD— A sen ate committee has done its part to save California almost six million dollars a year in taxes. The Revenue and Taxation Committee Monday approved a bill which would strip the property tax exemption from 80,000 veterans who did not serve in wartime. It also killed a bill which would have exempted prescription drugs from the sales tax. Sen. Luther E. Gibson (D-Val- Iejo) authored the bill to change the official dates for the end of World War n, and the Korea conflict to the day shooting actually stopped. Dugald Gillies, a consultant for an interim committee which Gib son headed, explained that the proposal would provide local gov emments with about $3,500,000 in additional property taxes. Gillies said under present law veterans who served for about If months after the end of fighting were eligible for a tax exemption along with wartime vets. The committee rejected a bill by Sen. Stanford C. Shaw (D-On tario) which would have exempted prescription drugs from the sales tax. Shaw admitted that passage of the bill would cost the state $2, 750,000 a year and would cost cities and counties about $900,000. But he argued that drugs were air "involuntary purchase" and hit taxpayers at a time when they were ill and least able to pay. V 1» COL. HARRY P. WHEATON Wheafon Now Full Colonel Harry P.

The kite was so far out toward the moon, which was hiding behind a cloud, that the -Facts man couldn't even see it. Even the youngsters who had joined the kite derby by this time had to send written messages to the flying "Man in the Moon". This they did on scraps of paper. They would punch a hole in the paper, put it on the string and let the wind carry it upward. Eventually Dennis' dad, Henry Kramer, came home and hoping to get supper at some reasonable hour, started to reel in the kite He' was still winding string over the spindle when darkness descended. If Dennis can promote enough balls of string he may get hi* kite out the remaining 238,851 miles to the moon. The kite was an ordinary "store bought" type.
