4 - Tuesday, Mar. 31, 1959 Redlands Daily Facts Parker Favors Civic Center Area Expansion Charles Parker, the City Council representative to the City Planning Commission, urges a stand-fast policy in regard to the Civic Center Area which is part of the official Master Plan for Redlands. The Civic Center has been brought to public attention recently because the county sought Planning Commission approval for a site elsewhere (Center north of] Brookside'. This occasioned two Facts editorials which Mr. Parker commsnts on. His statement, in the form of a letter to the editor, follows: May I add my thanks to those of Louis Fletcher for the two re, cent editorials concerning city planning and particularly the dis-, cussion of problems relative to Civic Center location. Certainly public interest must be generated if any such long-range plan is to be effective. Your observations concerning the difficulties involved in further expansion of the Civic Center in the general area as set forth in the City Master Plan are very well taken. I'm sure there are many who will feel that it would be wise to start planning now for an eventual move to another area of town where land is less costly and more is available. However, there is another side to the problem. During the past year more gen uine interest has been shown on the part of downtown businessmen and property owners to upgrade the shopping district than has ever been evidenced before. Landlords and others are investing more money in new construction and business house remodeling than at any time in the city's history. Our banks have shown confidence in a continuing centralized downtown district by investing over three-quarters of a million dollars in new facilities. Property owners in the Vehicle Farking District have obligated themselves and the district to another $300,000 for much-needed off-street parking. These were very expensive properties but since they seemed the best suited for their purpose, the high costs were considered justified. The Board of Parking Commissioners of the district are even now looking for further sites and considering ways and means to make further acquisitions self-, liquidating. . The California Water and Telephone Company is in the process of spending nearly a quarter of a million dollars for new facilities in the heart of our Civic Center. The Edison Company is building fine new quarters just on the fringe of the area. All of these added to the City Hall. Smiley Library, Park, Redlands Bowl, Lincoln Shrine and Post Office form the nucleus ef an already sizable Civic Center. No matter what expansion is needed in the future it is going to be extremely costly, whether it takes place here or in a move to a new location. I believe we are firmly committed to maintaining a closely- knit downtown Redlands. To do otherwise would be a breach of j faith with those who have worked so hard and invested so much time and money to assure its fu ture. Busy Month Ahead For Stanley Combs The month of April will be quite busy for Dr. Stanley L. Combs, professor of education at the University of Redlands. On April 2, 3 and 4. the educator will go to Santa Barbara with Dr. Robert L.

PEOPLE JUST DON'T CARE Public Apathy Blamed For Lack Of Polio Shots C.M.E. To Hear SC Professor LOMA LIN'DA — Dr. Herman Harvey, associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Southern California, will speak at the College of Medical Evangelists on Thursday. Subject of Dr. Harvey's address is "On Making Science and Scientists." He will deliver his remarks at a faculty dinner of the CME School of Graduate Studies. At least 100 faculty members are expected to attend the affair which will be held in the College Dining Room beginning at 6:30 p.m. Host for the affair will be Public apathy is the biggest deterrent to an effective polio vaccination campaign, Dr. Merle E Cosand, head of the County Health Department, said today. "We have tried to survey peo pie in a small way," he said, "and the answers we get are in dicative of the attitude oljhe general public." People were aksed how far along they were in obtaining im munity to paralytic polio via the Salk vaccine. Answers Included phrases such as "I hadn't thought much about it" or "I haven't bothered." "Everybody knows about the Salk vaccine," Dr. Cosand said "but too few people do anything about it. They don't wake, up to the danger until a friend or relative or the man next door is killed or made a lifelong cripple by polio." "We catch the kids in kindergartens, first grades and preschool clinics as a matter o 1 course," he said. Dr. Cosand went on to note that there is no shortage of vaccine the real shortage is of persons to be vaccinated. 'The promotion of the polio in- nocuiation campaign depends primarily on community interest," he said. "We are always quite. willing to discuss the problems involved with any interested group." He added that it is diffi cult and impractical for bis office to go out and drum up busi ness Apparently it does little good to publicize the Salk vaccine and the whens and whercs of obtaining it when the majority of the public is apathetic. It therefore becomes necessary for interested groups within the community to arouse the populace by putting on social pressure. The indifferent ones have to be made to feel ashamed of their apathyi toward their own lives and well- being. Meanwhile, nationally, polio statistics are going up instead oi down. Five epidemics were reported last year, and the increase was 24 per cent over the 1957 low. So far this year, the increase is 55 i-cr cent above last year. Why? Because one-third of all children under six have not had one shot of vaccine, let along the three required for immunity. Because only two-fifths of thej population have had one or more, shots. Because 25 million people un der 20 have had either no shots or not enough. Dr. Cragg Speaks On Panel * Increasing interest in fitness of| America's youth was reported today by Dr. Nadine Cragg, profes sor of physical education at the University of Redlands, upon returning from attendance at t h e 26th Statewide Conference of the California Association for Health Physical Education and Kecrea tion in Los Angeles recently.
