4 — Tuesday, Jan. 28, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts Gen. Thatcher says Air defense to continue vital local protection Vital (o the protection of Southern California, a key area in the nation, the air defense renter at Norton AFB is marked for continued operation. Lt. Gen. Harold B. Thatcher, chief of the Air Defense Command, gave that assurance at the SAGE blockhouse this morning. The three-star general making a two-day inspection of the Los Angeles Air Defense Sector, told newsmen that a major realignment of the air defense ground environment systems last year would not change the picture for the Air Defense nerve center at Norton. He was referring to the closure of six SAGE centers for economic reasons last May. "I can see no real change in Air Defense that would affect this area in the foreseeable future. "Los Angeles is just loo important an area to fool around with," he remarked. Gen. Thatcher was .scheduled for a briefing by Col. Joseph Myers, LAADS commander, and was to leave Norton at 10:30 a.m. to visit A i r Defense fighter-incfercepfor squadrons at Oxnard AFB and George AFB. On the subject of fighter-in- Icrceptors, the 55-year-old general speculated that within three years Air Defense pilots would be flying a new interceptor capable of traveling three times the speed of sound. i "We have high requirements to get an improved manned air- \ craft. "The Russians already have f ensc against missile attack asjfense's capacity for early detec a Mach 2.5 (2'/i-times the speed yet, Gen.

"A reliable interceptor must have the capacity to fly at least one-third faster than incoming aircraft. So we have to have a Mach aircraft 3," Gen Thatcher explained. He related that the Air Force is now awaiting a decision on just such an aircraft — one that could range 1400 miles from its base and still return, that would be equipped with airborne radar that could lock on a target at 100 miles, and that would be armed with new missiles. Conceding that there is no de- Leroy Hansberger heads 1964 Community Chest AIR DEFENSE CHIEF — It. Gen. Harold B. Thatcher, commander of the Air Force's Air Defense Command headquartered at Colorado Springs, Colo., smiles broadly as he responds to questions from newsmen during press conference at Los Angeles Air Defense headquarters at Norton AFB this morning. (Daily Facts photo by Ron Kibby) "Requirements exist on the highest level for a missle defense. We're not in competition (with other services). We'll take Ihe one which works best.'" he declared. He explained that the Army's Nike X is designed to intercept an incoming missile in its "terminal" stage, but that other possibilities exist for destroying enemy missiles as they lift off the launching pad or in the "boost" stage. Gen. Thatcher added that he had high confidence in Air De- attack, and in its ability to counter manned bomber attacks. Air Defense Command is also getting more involved in the space business as more and more satellites are put into orbit. Gen. Thatcher explained that ADC maintains trackers and optical sensors in six countries outside the United States and that Air Defense maintains a complete catalog on more than 500 objects floating about in space. "We're watching Echo II very carefully at the moment," he commented.

Before a crowded chamber of parents with their adopted chil- |dren and welfare department workers with children for whom homes are being sought, Roscoe Lyda, welfare director, reported to the Supervisors. Lyda was visibly affected i when he told of the acceptance |of youngsters of all races and colors into homes in the county. Supervisors, too, seem touched by the scene before them, so different from ,most of the business conducted in their chambers. The children for whom homes are being sought, ranging from infants a month old to a boy of three, Iwere introduced to Board members. , "It's a wonderful work you're [doing," Board Chairman Nancy Smith said to Lyda, those in his department and the parents who have given homes to the children. cific interest in outgoing and incoming mail schedules, the following is a complete listing as provided by Mr. Stanton.

Board picks SB State College site SACRAMENTO (UPI) — The state Board of Public Works picked two state college sites Monday in apparent settlement of a contest between four Southern California cities. The board backed up the slate college Board of Trustees by choosing a 200-acre Rolling Hills Estates site at Crest Road and Hawthorne Boulevard, for the new South Bay State College. , For the proposed 20,000- student San Bernardino State College, the board authorized a location in Devils Canyon, northwest of San Bernardino, (over objections from the city of Rialto that the site was located on a major earthquake fault and lacked an adequate water supply. Despite the outstanding services provided for the community by the existing eight Community Chest agencies, there are still three "blind spots" where needs are not being fulfilled, the Rev. John Foerster emphasized as featured speaker at the annual meeting of the Redlands Community Chest last night. These needs, he said are for a service to unwed mothers, a service for the mentally ill and a service to care for children "who get beat up by their parents." And Rev. Foerster said "I'm not just talking off the top of my head about these things, I'm speaking from deep experience." He noted that one eight- year-old child in Redlands was beaten to the point where he was in a stupor for six weeks. When he was well again and ready to be returned to his home, his parents commented that "we know what to do with him. We'll just kick him off our boat in the middle of the Colorado river." I Rev. Foerster said there now is no place to care for children in this situation nor is there a place where unfortunate girls who are unwed mothers can get love and understanding. Tells of Need He said there is an effort being made now at the county level to help the mentally ill but there should be a local concern as well. Earlier, he traced the work of the existing eight Community Chest agencies, emphasizing that "Chest Agencies don't just provide services. There's that added something which our Chest agency leadership provides, a moral spirit and connotation." In his view, each agency is doing "my work as a churchman. Each organization has its roots in Christianity. Each is. It was also pointed out that an added hand in 'our work.' I agency requests went only "I, therefore am much con-(from $133,400 a year ago to cerncd that every Christian!$135,894 this year, while alloca- share in the total program ofjtions went from $105,500 to these agencies ... for the agen-i $116,000. cies are concerned not only with i the body but with the mind and! the spirit," Rev. Foerster declared. At the outset, he traced the derivation of the word "community" which, he said when put together with all its ancestors means "Bound together in strong fellowship for the benefit of all." More than 200 gathered at the University of Redlands Commons for the annual meeting to hear Rev. Foerster, pastor of the First Evangelical Lutheran church, and to elect officers and board members. They also heard a report from the Chest budget committee jwith allocations for the eight | agencies for this coming year. Allocations were approved by The specific allocations are listed as follows with this year's allocation first, then last year's allocations: Boy Scouts . Day Nursery .. Family Service Girl Scouts House of Neighborly Service Salvation Army YMCA YWCA ..$14,372 $13,550 .. 8.606 6.850 . 10.000 . 8,950 9,650 8,950 15.445 12,200 30,555 15.872 13.450 11,400 21350 14.300' As part of the annual meeting.

Budget chairman Yarnum Clark noted that interviews with representatives of each agency were held earlier this month before the allocations were made. "And I can report that the agencies are budgeting their funds carefully and are seeking funds for needed expansions. While we do not have funds to grant all the requests, our committee endorses, in general, the total programs proposed by all the agencies," Mr. Clark commented. Outgoing Chest President H. Fred Heisner noted, too that because the campaign went over its $138,000 goal by S3.000 "the board expects additional money can be allocated to some of the agencies later." Campaign Chairman Leroy Hansberger reported that the Chest campaign has now gone over the goal to a total of $141.727 and presented certificates to each of the division chairmen. He, himself was presented with a plaque commemorating his service to the Chest and the community by Dr. Heisner. And Dr. Heisner was also given a gift by Charles O. Pierpoint for his service as outgoing president and as 1962-63 campaign chairman. Special tribute was paid by both Mr. Hansberger and Dr. Heisner to the organizational abilities of James Youngberg, executive director "who has made our successful campaigns possible." Program tells of dangers in smoking A countywide program to educate people to the dangers of smoking and the need for early detection of cancer has been launched by the San Bernardino County chapter of the American Cancer Society. Five hundred clubs and church groups are being urged to show two films — "Is Smoking Worth It? and "Cancer; and Your Lungs." Many physicians have offered to attend showings of the films to answer questions where the audience numbers 25 or more. The film "Is Smoking Worth It?" is being requested for showing in county schools, The American Cancer Society reported. Dr. L. W. Bowersox, local Education Chairman, urges officers of clubs to schedule film showings for their members at an early date. SUNDAY MORNING DO-NUT CLUB 3-6-9 Doubles FREE COFFEE! FREE DO-NUTS!

"Science helps manufacturing industries reduce consumer prices by cutting down the man- hours needed to perform a given task," he said. "Science has exactly the opposite effect in the health business. It brings an increase in the man-hours needed to provide patient care because it has taught us how to do so much more for the patient. In hospitals, science saves lives, not time nor money." portant of all, the rates arc much lower." Praises Health Insurance The CHA official called voluntary health insurance such as "Blue Cross" . . . one of the best ideas developed in our society in the past century. "By increasing the total volume of money available, as well as spreading the payments over a much longer portion of the population, voluntary health insurance has brought the reality of modern medicine to a far greater number of people," Mr. Thomas said. "Any examination of its progress in only 30 years government — of giving all Americans regardless of age the best possible medical care at the lowest possible cost." Mr. Thomas assured his listeners the hospital industry knows it must hold the line wherever possible on the cost of hospital care. "We know that we are deeply involved in perhaps the toughest economic and social problem of the time" he concluded.
