Parking District Eyes Property, No Money The parking district today found itself in much the same position as many families—a desire to make a purchase but with no money and apparently no credit rating. This was the problem which occupied much of the time of the Board of Parking Commissioners this morning. An unidentified piece of prop- Car Flips, Tiny Girl Escapes Serious Injury A tiny girl had a narrow scrape with death as she learned that the age of two is just a little too young to learn to drive an automobile. Little Linda Crain, two year old daughter of Mrs. Patricia J. Crain, 20, evidentally shifted the car into gear when her mother had left the engine running while it was parked in the driveway of their home, 1030 Fremont street in Calimesa near Avenue L. The car moved forward, flipped over a high bank and dropped upside down on its hard top twenty five feet below. It was listed as a total wreck. Little Linda was taken to the Yucaipa hospital where it was found that her injuries consisted of minor cuts and bruises. erty in the downtown area is on the market Because it is desir able 'or off-street parking, t h commissioners would like to ac quire it. But the price tag is $35,000 and the fledgling district has expended most of iu readily available money for the existing parking, lots and the improvements. R. P. Merritt. Jr.. director of finance, estimated it would be about two years before the district starts to accumulate any "unobligated" income. Conflict Of Laws The lack of a credit rating apparenUy stems from a conflict of the laws governing the dis trict and the general laws governing the city of Redlands. Chairman W. E. Malone stated it was his understanding from the Parking District Act of 1943 under which the district was formed that the commission had financing powers similar to corporations and therefore could borrow the money over a five-year period. If legal a financial institution has already agreed to the loan, Mr. Malone s-id. But City Attorney Edward F. Taylor has told the commission that it must be ruled also by general law which permits no contracts for more than a year. Conference Planned And this is where the situation ended today. A conference later this week is expected to be set in order to discuss the subject further from a legal standpoint If it can be resolved in the near future, the property may yet fall to the district Lloyd Hulbert, member of the commission and a substantial holder of downtown business properties, has indicated he is going to buy the property on his own and if the commission can finance it, he will let the district buy it at the same price he is paying for it now. The only other action by the commission this morning was to make a direct request of the Traffic comnrssion to consider the pos sibility of permitting motorists to, enter the Triangle parking 1 o t from the Orange street side, especially now that signals are im pending. In another matter, the commission w^s informed that the County Board of Supervisors today agreed to waive five-sixths of the second tax installment due on the Robin Hood property at Fourth and Citrus, now owned by the district. I Mrs. Cantley Not To Be A Candidate Mrs. Morris Cantley, Redlands area representative on the County Board of Education, will not be a candidate Tor reelection for the: post, Mrs. Cantley announced to-| day. 'I appreciate the trust the citizens of Redlands have placed in me," Mrs. Cantley said, "a n d have been happy to make a contribution to education in this area I have enjoyed my association with administrators and county officials in the cause of better edu cation of our children." Her term in office expires at the end of June. No notices of ( candidacy for the post have been received by the county office.

No filings have been received on two vacancies in the Mission district or one in the Fallsvale district. There are three entrants so far in the contest for two vacancies on the Yucaipa school board, Alex Law, Dr. J.

Sheriff's Men Capture Escapee It just didn't seem right to an alert clerk in a Calimesa market last night when he heard a husky male voice coming from one of his female customers. He called the -.heriff's office and in a matter of minutes in custody was a Patton State Hospital escapee whom lawmen and psychiatric workers considered "very! dangerous" and who was disguis ed in women's clothing. Deputy Sheriff Willard Farqua -I har identified his captive as Ben-j jamin Kneeling. 59, of San Diego. Kneeling was dressed completely in women's apparel including underclothing. Kneeling had walked away from the state hospital at about 4 p.m. An all-points-bulletin notified all law agencies that Kneeling was 'considered very dangerous with possible homicidal tendencies. He is a known sex offender. The slight, greying Kneeling had driven a stolen car to Calimesa the Sheriffs Office said. He offered no resistance when Farquhar approached him. At the Redlands sheriff's substation he sat quietly waiting for a Patton staff member to arrive to identi fy him. The Sheriff's Office said all of its units were joined in the search at the time Farquhar reported that he had taken into custody r, man answering Kneeling's description.

NEW YORK (UPD —Citrus: California Navels: 12 cars, low er, hall boxes $3.46. Attracted by the Tom Thumb Players, a capacity audience of parents and children filled Clock auditorium Saturday in Redlands' first annual benefit for the Children's Home Society. The dramatic troupe brought de- iight to the children who overflowed the auditorium to see, "Rumpelstiltskin" and "Little Red Riding Hood" enacted on the stage. The event was termed a "finan cial success" by Mrs. James A. Smith, president of Bonnes Meres^ Redlands chapter of the society Proceeds will be used to finance the services provided by the society to children, natural parents nd adoptive parents throughout California. Mrs. Raymond L. Haight was chairman of the benefit performance, assisted by Mrs. Frank Babcock, refreshments; Mrs. Melvin Haas, tickets; Mrs. Edward Campbell, service, and Mrs. Lloyd Watts, ushers. Serving as usherettes for the event were members of Kimberly Juniors. A licensed adoption agency offering protection to all parties involved in an adoption. Children's Home Society provides skilled professional counsel for parents considering adoption. The natural parents receive expert guidance while they make their decision as to the best plan for the child. Children under the society's care are placed in adoptive homes that have been carefully selected by qualified Social workers. "Financing a Children's Horn Society adoption begins long before the child is actually placed because it is then that a study of the child and his needs and the evaluation of the advisability of adoption from the natural par cnt's standpoint must be made,' Mrs. Smith explained. 'Each child coming under the care of the society is immediate ly placed in a specially selected temporary boarding home, where he receives loving care and affection while permanent plans arc being completed," she said. 'It is the responsibility of our local chapters to bear part of the burden for supporting the program of the Children's Home Society and fund-raising activities such as the Tom Thumb Players' performance help Bonnes Meres to dis charge their responsibility". Mrs Smith said. Mumble, mumble. "You're ten dollars short —you forgot to carry one here." "Yes, this is considered as income — it ought to be added in there." The author of these and other! like statements is Edward V. Var -J ton of the United States Treasury Department, Bureau of In ternal Revenue. Mr. Varton is holding forth in the basement of the Redlands Post Office during the income tax season. He will be there from 8 a.m til 4:30 p.m. for the next two Mondays, April 6 and 13. After that it will be too late; the filing deadline is Wednesday, April 15. While the lineup for an audience is never too long, business i s brisk enough to keep Mr. Varton busy full time. While most people obtain temporary relief, they still seem to carry their burden with them as they leave. "No, there's no help for it," Mr. Varton said at one point. "you're stuck in the 20 per cent bracket.' The woman slowly shook her head as she left. What a shame to have made all that money! Two sweatshirted coeds from the University of Redlands breezed in and selected forms from among the piles laid out on a long table. They finally selected the short form 1040. One reached for the IRS's instruction booklet on how to compute the tax. She handed it to her partner in distress who thumbed it nervously and dropped it as though it had lice. "Oooooh," she said, "I don't want that — I'll never understand that." They left hurriedly. Mr. Varton was very congenial and impartial about the problems presented to him. He always says, "They won't give you anything back." He never says, "We won't give you anything back." Alter all, the income tax is not his fault either. Mrs. Chace Dies In East SMILEY P.T.A.

The Mitchell engineering organization said it plans a 50,000-ton. 600-foot nuclear-powered submarine that could travel under the ice into Canada's Hudson Bay the year round. Valuable ores mined in the area build up during the winter because surface vessels cannot get through the thick ice into the bay to transport them to smelters. A spokesman for Mitchell engineering said the planned submarine, nicknamed the "Moby Dick," would cost around 54 million dollars. He said it should be ready about 196".
