Garbage committees heading toward conflict A special citizens committee seeking to improve the controversial Mandatory Rubbish Collection ordinance and a second citizens committee wanting its repeal appear headed on a collision course. One committee will submit its recommended changes in the ordinance to the City Council on Tuesday. Meanwhile, a vigorous petition campaign is being waged by the opposition group to place the refuse pickup issue on the April municipal ballot as an initiative measure. The conflict between the two citizens groups seems unavoid able because five members of the study committee are leaders of the opposition. Vice Mayor Waldo Burroughs, chairman of the group studying possible ways to strengthen the ordinance, stated today that the 11-member committee will hold its last study session on Monday. Burroughs revealed that his committee will come to grips with the major issue — mandatory collection versus voluntary) collection — at that time. "We saved it for the very last, stated. Burroughs disclosed that no "earth shaking" revisions would be recommended by the committee, but that several "little changes" might be proposed to generally strengthen the ordinance. "The combined changes would give a more workable ordinance and one that will please more people," he said A spokesman for the Voter's Committee Against the Com pulsory Disposal Program an nounced yesterday that the in iative campaign was receiving "better than expected support" and that petitions calling for a city election will be filed before February 4. Mrs. Paul Jacobs, whose husband is chairman of the opposition group and a co-chairman of the ordinance study committee, reported that about 40 petitions are being circulated at the present time. "In voting precincts where we expected to obtain about half the potential signatures, we find we are getting from three- fourths to all the signatures. "In one particular precinct, he | only four people refused to sign our petition," she stated. With both committees moving rapidly forward to complete its work the five members who be long to both groups will have to decide whether they wish to support or oppose the rubbish ordinance. In addition to Jacobs, this conflict of interest will be faced by Joseph Loughney, 925 Alvarado street; Mrs. Martha Prescott, 1019 East Central avenue; Tiofilo Saldana, 1429 North Orange street; and Lawrence Osborn, East San Bernardino avenue. Vice Mayor Burroughs reported that his committee made "no progress" and was unable to reach a majority agreement at a meeting last night. j He said the matter of the initiative campagn is never discussed at the study sessions. "The whole question hinges on the changes suggested in the ordinance. 'The outcome of the overall decision on voluntary versus mandatory rubbish collection will depend on whether we end up with a workable ordinance that will keep the city clean and that will benefit the greatest majority," Burroughs observed. Chest Agencies to attend annual dinner The eight Redlands Community Chest agencies will share the spotlight on equal terms at the annual dinner meeting of the Redlands Area Community Chest at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 27, it was announced today by Dr. William E.

Dennis Wardle confirmed today that he has been considering tossing his hat in the county Congressional race but emphasized that he has still not reached a final decision. Political rumor had it a week ago that Mr. Wardle and Jerry Pettis of Loma Linda were both ready to announce their candi dacics for the Republican nomination to oppose Democratic incumbent Harry R. Sheppard. But neither has yet made any specific announcement although Mr. Pettis did resign his post as vice president for development at Loma Linda university, ostensibly to leave him free to pursue a political career. Mr. Wardle, in a written state ment to the Facts today, said he has indeed been encouraged by the urging of his friends to run and, in any event, he will take an active part in politics whether he runs for Congress or not. Here is Mr. Wardle's state Astronomers to hear of new comet study New developments in the study of comets will be discussed at length Thursday in a lecture sponsored by the Valley Amateur Astronomers. Dr. Robert S. Richardson, associate director of the Griffith Observatory, will be guest speaker at the 8 p.m. program in Room 101 at the Hall of Letters at the University of Redlands. Dr. Richardson, who has done extensive research on the nature of comets, believes that the ideal experiment would be to land a space vehicle on a comet and after taking a sample, return the probe to earth. Thursday evening's program is the last of the Alexander F. Morrison Foundation lectures co-sponsored by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and the Valley Amateur Astronomers. Tiran-2 delay CAPE KENNEDY (UPI) — Technical difficulties forced an other postponement today in the test firing of a Titan-2 rocket that is slated to boost America's • first ' unmanned Gemini space ship into orbit in March. Announcement of Funeral Services EDWARD A. STOWE Private services 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, at the F. Arthur Cortner Chapel. WILLIAM O. HALLETT Services pending. t. ARTHUR CORTNER m BROOKSJDE J0TE..PY 2-1111 ment, without quotes: Reports that I have been urged by many responsible persons to run for Congress are correct. Further inquiries have brought warm and even enthusiastic response. While I am amazed and deeply gratified at the kindnesses expressed, no decision has been reached. The numerous factors in such a decision are not easily or quickly weighed. Regardless of what the decision is on the Congressional race, I am definitely decided to take a more active part in broad public affairs from now on I am concerned, even deeply troubled about the unsound policies and preposterous proposals being promoted by the socialist! cally inclined wing of the present administration in Washington. I have heard nothing from our present representative there in opposition to these dangerous and unconstitutional trends. From this hour, my voice will be raised in defense of our national sovereignty, in opposition to tyranny everywhere, insisting that unnecessary government programs and expenditures cease, and to bring about the removal of government interference in business and private affairs. These aims we can all strive for without bitterness and without narrowness. In fact, a full and constant discussion of the factual issues is always helpful for this great republic. Above all, we should not permit our enemies to divide us even though we have honest differences of opinion. This decision to speak out will in no way lessen the time and attention which I devote to the CountyClerk's office. This month I am concluding my term as Commander of the United Veterans of the Republic for S. B. Co. My duties as immediate past President of the County Elective Officers Association are ended. I am withdrawing from some community, social and personal obligations to spend that time in political affairs whether I decide to be a Congressional candidate or not. I am most grateful to those in the Co. clerk's office who have given us the excellent reputation as the best functioning and most courteous County Clerk's office in the state.

The Pomona Fruit Frost Service issued a preliminary forecast calling for 26 degrees tonight with orchard heating expected to be necessary as early as 3 a.m. in the colder locations. The winds, which developed in mid-morning, were expected to die down sometime this afternoon or early evening. Roy Simpson, chief of the Pomona bureau, said the stormy looking clouds over Redlands this morning were part of a fast-moving and very narrow weather front. The front brought light show ers to some areas in Southern California and thunderstorms near El Toro and Fullerton. But Redlands got nary a drop of jrain. Although Redlands citrus growers are expected to have some light firing tonight, Florida citrus was expected to be in for some big trouble tonight. According to W. 0. Brunton, a "hard freeze" is predicted in Florida tonight and it was already snowing in St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Sarasota this afternoon. Florida is just recovering from a severe freeze last year. LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI)— A Congressional subcommittee caught in the fire of sports enthusiasts and conservationists resumed hearings today on possible opening of part of Mt. San Gorgonio in Southern California for commercial ski development The subcommittee, hearing re quests for possible changes in government policy outlined in the "Wilderness Bill," was told by an attorney for the San Gorgonio Ski Lift Inc. that opening of the 11,502 - foot high mountain above the 9,000-foot mark to mechanized downhill skiing is necessary to "the public welfare and expanding needs of the 12 million people in Southern California." Andrew Hauk of Los Angeles, an attorney for the ski lift company which was formed in hopes of opening the area, said the 3,500 acres in question constitute less than 10 per cent of the wild life area of the San Bernardino National Forest, dedicated 1931. But Barclay Kamp, geology professor at Caltech, said arguing for development under the principle of the "greatest good for the greatest number" is like arguing that churches be converted to roller skating rinks to increase attendance. A representative of the Barton Flats Camping Association testified that 26 non - profit youth camps adjoining the wild area could die if it is not maintained in its present state. Bird watch ing societies in the San Bernar dino area also have fought the almost two - year-old effort to open the area.
