Only One Barrier Blocks Delmann Heights Work f ,V W Liity Thursday, May 11, 1967 B-1 Earl Buie Dogwoods' Late Bloom .1 have another request, the third or fourth I have received this spring for information as to when the dogwood will be in bloom in the mountains. This is from William and Velma Derby, 115 Michigan St., Redlands. Because of the late storms and cool weather, the dogwood is a little tardy in blooming this spring. But should the warm weather come again, as it almost certainly will soon, the dogwood will reach the height of its blooming season in a week or 10 days, said Donald R. Bauer, supervisor of the San Bernardino National Forest. The blooming season will continue until mid-June. : The dogwood, which in my opinion is the most beautiful flower of the forest, is found in the sha- $ dy, moist canyons I $r ' Vj slopes of the moun- lama. 111c uugwuuu zone extends from the Lake Arrowhead district on the east to Crestline I an yond Saw-I v yi I pit canyon on the I V I west.

And I should tell you, Bauer said, that the dogwood is protected by law. You can't pick the beautiful, waxy petal blooms. But they are beautiful to see. '--..'

Each morning and afternoon he helps Mrs. Tiny Dog Makes Career Out of Going to School By LEONARD METZ Sun-Telwam Staff Writer Tuffy has been in the 5th grade at Barton School longer than the teacher. Mrs. Ann Reese inherited Tuffy when she came to Barton about seven years ago. Tuffy was already attending. He started by accompanying Steve Pepper to the fifth grade, and Steve today is a senior at San Gorgonio High. When Steve left Barton for junior high school, Tuffy kept right on going. He would leave the home of the Charles M. Pepper family at 6277 Rosena, early every morning, stop at Pumalo and Sterling to help the youngsters cross the street, then spend the rest of the day at Barton. Every afternoon he would reverse his steps, helping to guide the youngsters across busy Sterling Avenue before returning home. He's still guarding the crossing. Mrs. James McHarry, named crossing guard at the corner 30 months ago, said that Tuffy is a big help. "He keeps the other dogs away, too," she said. "He growls at them." "Tuffy decided he likes me," she said. "He comes here between 7:45 and 8 every ' morning and keeps me company. He goes out into the street even farther than I do to guide the children across. "He waits for Greg to come along." Greg is a boy who lives on his street. Greg stops for the dog, and they go on to school together. Greg is not a member of the Pepper family, but there are no longer any young Peppers going to Barton. Mike, 20, is in the Navy, and Steve is an All-CIF tackle at San Gorgonio High.

Pumalo Street on their way to and from Barton School. . At Barton, Tuffy spends a lot of time in Mrs. Reese's classroom. This year they included him in the Room D-l pictures, right between Mrs. Reese and the principal, Cecil E. Moore. Tuffy is usually well-mannered, but has a few bad habits. The children say he likes to chew up erasers and crayons. Mrs. Reese said Tuffy can only stay in class if the children obey "t h e rule." "We can't put him," they chorused, when asked to give the rule. Lloyd McDaniel, the teacher in D-3 two doors down, remembers when Steve was attending his class. Tuffy still comes in once in a while to visit, McDaniel said. Tuffy is a non-partisan dog, part Pekinese, part toy collie and part uncommitted. He is 12 years old. "He's been real good with kids," said Mike. "He lets them pull on his ears and push him around and doesn't do anything." When Tuffy was small, you'd never have thought he'd take up going to school as a career. "Once he walked into a corner," Mike said, "and cried because he didn't know how to back out."

BONDS THRIFT PROGRAM IN THE WORLD By QUENTIN FOLEY Sun-Televam Staff Writer When one remaining decision is made by the San Bernardino City Council, work can be started on the $2,152,-393 project to revitalize the 30-block Delmann Heights residential area. The first task in preventing Delmann Heights from becoming a blighted area is to survey each building to see what modifications are necessary to bring them up to the Uniform Housing Code. To do this, the city needs to hire three building inspectors, two secretaries and a loan grant specialist. The question that has caused the slight delay in hiring these people is whether Vietnam Hot Topic To Ex-Ambassador By MARJIE REYNOLDS Sun-Telewam Staff Writer A former ambassador to Vietnam believes that . "firmness backed up by force" is the way to end the war there, he said in a conference at San Bern-nardino Valley College. But Elbridge Durbrow had a difficult time answering challenges to his position from a University of California at Riverside graduate student. Their discussion, taped at a Valley College conference on Asia last week, will be aired tonight over KVCR, Channel 24. Durbrow, ambassador from 1958 to 1961, and Larry Davis, a Regents' Fellow at UCR, were panel members in the program on "What's happening in Vietnam?" Davis, who is co - author of a forthcoming book on Vietnam, "War without Victory," believes that the basic issue is the U.S. Government's failure to recognize the extent of North Vietnam control over South Vietnam. While Dr. P. K. Banerjee, first minister and charge d'affaires of the Indian Embassy in Washington, D. C, and Dr. S. H. Tan, adviser to the Embassy of the Republic of China took part in the program, the debate primarily was between Durbrow and Davis. 1 At various times. Davis tossed tut Best Outfit in the State Ontario Air National Guard Honored By KARL R. EDGERTON Sun-Telegram Military Editor The Ontario , Air National Guard, charged with the responsibility of protecting Southern California from attack, has received the Outstanding Unit Award, highest honor given by the Air Force in time of peace. The elite 163rd Fighter Group based at Ontario International Airport scored highest on an operational readiness inspection of Air Guard units in California and Arizona. The surprise test is held approximately every two years at bases throughout the country to test the ability of Guard personnel and pilots to get fighter planes in the air to intercept and destroy incoming planes. Scoring by the inspection team was based on film shot by pilots as they scramble to intercept enemy targets and the efficiency of ground crew3 and other personnel who back up the fighters. As part of the ORI, base personnel were recalled in the alert phase and almost 750 guardsmen from throughout Southern California were at their posts within two hours. During the battle phase of the inspection, pilots of the 196th Fighter Interceptor Squadron flew an estimated 56 sorties against faker forces comprised of B-57 Canberra aircraft supplied by the Air Defense Command headquarters at Ent Air Force Base, Colo. Officials reported that at one point during the scramble and intercept phase the Ontario pilots scored 42 successive "hits" or missions accomplished. It is the second outstanding award in House Committee OKs Pettis Seeks to Strengthen Congress The House Republican Policy Committee approved six resolutions presented by Rep. Jerry Pettis, R-San Bernardino County, aimed at updating and modernizing congressional procedures. Pettis warned that unless Congress is strengthened, "there is a grave danger that the historic role of Congress, including a check on massive power of the executive branch of government, may be dangerously diluted." The action of the committee is an attempt to renew efforts for updating contained in a Senate-approved bill which is now before the House Rules Committee. "There are disturbing indications that with the Democratic- leadership having a 2-1 majority on the rules committee, they should be city civil service employes or non-civil service. "It is up to the City Council to decide, and the mayor's office is preparing data now on which they (council members) can base a decision," said Steve Franks, city federal aid coordinator. "The matter could be placed before the council next week that's our hope," he said. Mayor Al C. Ballard has indicated he would prefer to fill the positions by hiring people residing in the Delmann Heights area, although it is not required by the federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) agency which is putting up the bulk of the revitalization money. statistics which appeared in government statements, but Durbrow admitted he was unfamiliar with them. On one point, he said, "I must have been asleep that day." Durbrow took the traditional stand that the United States is committed to (Continued on B 9, Column 4) Sun, Warmth to Sunshine and warmer weather are expected to be here now for some time to come as yesterday's overcast and showers left the San Bernardino Valley and county desert regions late in the day. The U.S. Weather Bureau in Los Angeles forecast clear skies and warm weather for today and tomorrow in the valley and desert regions and called for partly cloudy skies over the San Bernardino Mountains. A five - day forecast issued yesterday predicted clear weather for all San Bernardino County points through Monday. , Rains in the mountains may have contributed to a landslide that partially closed State Highway 18 1 mile south of the Panorama maintenance station Tuesday. . The California Highway Patrol report a row for the San Bernardino Air Guardsmen. The last surprise inspection was held in 1964 when the Ontario fighter-interceptor squadron was flying F86 Super Sabres. Pilots now man the F102 Delta Daggers that have become a familiar sight in the skies over the Inland Empire. The F102s are equipped with heat-seeking missiles and .45 cal. machine guns, flown by "weekend warriors" as much COL. ARTHUR BRIDGE . . . Air National Guard 6 Resolutions no action may be taken this year," Pettis said. "Nothing has been done." The freshman congressman's resolutions called for: 1. Establishment of a joint committee on congressional operations with power to recommend reforms and changes. 2. The protection of rights of the minority party through provision of additional committee staff, right to present minority reports and call minority witnesses at hearings. 3. Authorizing measures to assist members of Congress in performance of their duties, including employment of consultants on interim basis to take advantage of expert knowledge in various fields such as space. "The city is still receiving applications for the jobs," Franks said. When the building deficiencies have been catalogued, the loan grant specialist will decide which property owners can apply for HUD grants and which should apply for low interest loans from HUD. Income is the dividing line between those who get free money to bring their houses up to standard and those who must borrow it. Ralph F. Spencer, city superintendent of building and safety, estimates there are about 135 families in the area with such low incomes they could be eligible for grants of up to $1,500 each. To cover this, the city has applied to HUD for $202,500 in grant money: Spencer estimates there are about 200 families who could be eligible to borrow money to fix up their houses at 3 per cent interest to be repaid over a 30-year period. The city has asked HUD to set aside $400,000 to cover the loans to be requested. Neither of these city requests has received an absolute approval from HUD. Coupling the two requests with funds HUD has approved and other city applications, the HUD involvement in improving Delmann Heights could total $1,-566,246.20.

The 750 airmen who are members of the 163rd share a proud heritage that began shortly after World War II when the group was formed at Norton AFB. They were called to active duty during the Korean War and flew combat missions against Communist MIG fighters. Although not technically on active duty since the end of that conflict, the fighter group has been on constant 24-hour alert status ever since they were assigned to Ontario. "For all practical purposes we are on active duty all the time," said lean, slightly gray Col. Arthur Bridge, commanding officer of the guard unit. He explained the 163rd's combat pilots alternate with time off from their civilian jobs to maintain a round-the-clock readiness status at the Ontario base. The time spent patrolling the sky and coastline of Southern California keeps their combat effectiveness honed to razor sharpness so that they are capable of reponding almost instantaneously to any and all threats against the continental United States.

Implementation of fiscal controls and budgetary reforms which will include a greater use of the general accounting office and explanations of the budget presented by the administration. 5. Establishment of bill of rights for committees that would require announcement of record votes, permit filing of reports, and printing of committee rules prior to committee sessions. 6. Strengthen the Lobbying Act of 1946 to enforce a code which prohibits executive branch from using appropriated monies to influence congressmen's votes on legislation. Pettis said the passage of these resolutions by both houses would help "restore the balance between Congress and the Executive Branch." . .
