This includes such things as smoothing cobblestone gutters removing collected dirt and debris, killing weeds and filling all "major" indentations, pot holes if you will.

Hungary may free Cardinal VATICAN CITY (UPI) — There was new hope at the Vatican today that Jozsef Cardinal Mindszenty may soon be released from his seven-year seclusion in the U. S. legation in Communist Hungary. The hope was spurred by an Italian News Agency report from the United Nations Friday night, quoting unnamed diplomats as saying year-long negotiations for Mindszenity's release are nearing a successful conclusion. The ANSA Agency said Hungary, which previously insisted that the 71-year-old cardinal request a pardon, is now prepared to give him unconditional "full liberty." The agency said this would amount to an admission that the cardinal's conviction in 1949 on charges of treason, espionage and black market curren cy dealings was unjust. ANSA said Hungary also is prepared to let the Vatican appoint bishops to fill vacant dio ceses in that country, subject to government approval. A high Vatican source ac knowledged that the Mindszen­ ty negotiations were "in a very advanced stage" but said he could not confirm or deny the report. "We hope it is true," he said. gelus residents to annext to the Redlands Unified School district was endorsed this week by School Trustees. But it was emphasized that the matter is one for residents of Camp Angelus to decide and the annexation will not be ac tively promoted by the Redlands district. Camp Angelus is now part of the Bear Valley Unified school district and its de-annexation from that area would have to be approved by the Bear Valley board. Because there are indications that the Bear Valley board will not approve and further that residents of Camp Angelus arc also divided on the question, officials suspect that the annexa tion might never occur. The formal petition, however, bore the required signatures of 35 per cent of registered voters in Camp Angelus. It was submitted by Richard A. Geiger. It noted, further, that the area would bring into the Redlands district an assessed valuation of $1,216,230. Supt. H. Fred Heisner said this assessed valuation would be more than sufficient to pay for the education of the approximately 28 students who would attend Redlands schools if annexation were completed. Dr. Heisner explained that he had conferred with proponents of the annexation several weeks ago, at their request, and had told them that he felt the Redlands district would accept Camp Angelus into the district "if people there felt we could provide a better education fori their children." But he also not said that Redlands would seek the annexation. It was on that basis that the Trustees endorsed the annexation if it is eventually approved by Bear Valley, Camp Angelus, the State Board of Education and the County Board of Supervisors. In other actions this week, Trustees: Approved a new Mission PTA scholarship fund for a student or students living in the Mission school district. Accepted a gift of a motion picture scenario of "The Ten Commandments" autographed by Cecil B. deMille. Walter F. Sutter, 1320 W. Highland, offered the scenario to the district. Trustees directed that letter of appreciation be sent to him for the gift. Approved the necessary rcso Iutions for completion of the purchase of a 10-acre site for the new southeast elementary school on East Highland at Lincoln, as approved by Trustees on Jan. 14. Approved the rental of the University of Redlands swim ming pool for the senior high school from January through May, 1964. Employed Howard E. Spurney as building inspector for construction of new classrooms at Smiley and Kimberly.

Miss Ball, 52. president of De- silu Productions.

No citation was issued "because there was nothing to issue a citation for," according to the California Highway Patrol. GLENDALE (UPI) — Funeral services were conducted today for blond film star Alan Ladd, whose exact cause of death at the age of 50 remains a mystery, although the police and coroner have all but ruled out foul play or any deliberate cause. ( Services at the Church of the i Recessional in Forest Lawn Me moriai Park here were scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m. PST for the star of "This Gun for Hire," "Shane," and other motion pictures. Ladd, who was found dead in his Palm Springs home Wednesday and thought at first to have been a heart attack victim, may have succumbed because of "something he ate or drank that attacked his central nervous system." Riverside County Deputy Coroner Robert Drake suggested the latter reason, but said the specific cause must await the results of further laboratory tests expected to be completed by Monday. An autopsy has ruled out a heart seizure or any other dis ease, and the possibility of suicide, Drake said. Police Chier Gus Kettman of Palm Springs said there was no evidence of foul play. He said he planned no further investigation. Ladd, a comparatively short leading man, starred in some 40 films and will be seen in his last picture, "The Carpetbaggers," still to be released.
