4 - Monday, Feb. 17,1964 Red lands Daily Facts Grand Jury report Supervisors urged to solve aviation problem The 1953 County Grand Jury, icy is supposed to be formed by has urged the Board of Supervisors to take action to solve what it terras "management and accounting problems" in connection with the operation of the county's Aviation Bureau and the activities of Wallace Robbins, the appointed department head. One of the major recommendations is that the present Aviation Advisory commission be reduced in size from the present 13 members to 5 and, further that this commission be made advisory directly to the Supervisors instead of to the avia tion director. Here is the Grand Jury re port, findings and recommendations for the Aviation department. Mrs. Frank E. Moore of P.sdlssds was chsir—.ar. of this committee and Charles Sruckarc was a member. The Aviation Bureau has a management and accounts the Aviation Committee which, in turn, is advisory to the Director of Aviation. The Director is under the supervision of the County Administrator. The Aviation Committee consists of 13 members. In practice, it is found to be extremely difficult to convene such a large group. Hence, meetings are infrequent. The Aviation Committee should be revised. Five members has been found to be a workable number. The Aviation Committee is advisory to the Director of Aviation. The Committee should work with the Director, but be advisory to the Board of Supervisors with whom the ultimate decision lies. No criticise, of the members or" the Aviation Corr.rr.inee is intended. Criticism is directed to the unwieldy size as presently constituted and because it does problem requiring the attcntionjnot advise tbc Board of Super- of the Board of Supervisors. The; visors directly, problem particularly arises withl 2. The Director of Avia- not enforced as to buildings situated on County airport land at Chino which may be leased in competition to the private, taxpaying property owner. No effort has been made for progressively bringing these substandard buildings, now un der lease, or available for lease, up to code. The Chief of the Chino Rural Fire Department has, among other duties, that of answering fire calls at Chino Airport He does not have the authority to make written recommendations for adequate fire prevention. 4. Certain airports are operated under contract by private individuals. They pay rent based upon aircraft sales, fuel deliveries, etc. Periodic audits should be conducted by the County suditor. This is a recommends- tion o: Diehl, Evans and Company in their Grand Jury Audit. 5. One of the primary duties of the Director of Aviation is to make master plans for indivi dual airports. Perhaps because „ , „ ... £ „v M < Ihe has been so preoccupied with air fields that the Federal Gov-!tion should be accountable to]_' ... 5. t ", u „ and maintenance of property which he administers. The deficiency of the present system is illustrated by this situation: A building at the Chino airport is leased to a private individual. He, in turn, subleased a portion of the space to Arrowhead Display Corporation, build er of parade floats. The Director of Aviation was one of the own ers of the corporation. This was a questionable arrangement — yet, it was not known to the Administrative Officer. 3. For the safety of property Aviation Bureau ' into" t h"e j aml life ' tne Countv of San Ber nardino enforces building codes as related to private property. At the same time, the code is County following World War II. The Grand Jury agrees with the present policy of fostering County airports on the premise that the aviation and other facilities are attractive to industry; that industry is desirable from the viewpoints of increasing employment opportunities, and adding to the tax base; that in order to make airports more self-supporting, the County has leased space on them to private companies. (Anticipated revenues for 1963-64 are $137,000; budget allowed is $132,000.) j The result has been to put the business of industrial and commercial property management, as well as promoting needed airport facilities. The central problem is to create a sound .system fur the administration of properties which are on airports, and arc- leased to industries having nothing to do with aviation. The building of mobile homes is one prominent enterprise that can be mentioned by way of illustration. The second problem is to create an effective agency for the formulation of aviation policy and the means of seeing that the policy is carried out. FINDINGS: 1.

QUALITYI" B & B DRIVE-IN Highway 99 at Alabama Redlands Princess Lee wed in secret ceremony LONDON fUPI) — A spokesman for the Roman Catholic archbishop of Westminister today said Prince and Princess Stanislaus RadziwiU were remarried in England in a Catholic Church ceremony following a Vatican annulment of her previous marriage. Princess Lee RadziwiU is the former Lee Bouvier, sister of Mrs. John F. Kennedy. She and the prince have two children. The chief judge of the Vatican Rota, which is the Catholic Church's supreme court in marriage cases, said Sunday that the princess had been granted an annulment of her marriage to American publisher Michael Canfield. I Msgr. Francis J. Brennan i said the annulment was grant- jed last June or July. The decision opened the way for the princess to marry RadziwiU in a church ceremony. They were previously wed in a civil ceremony which is not recog- inized by the church. The secretary to Archbishop John Carmel Heenan, Britain's top ranking CathoUc churchman said the church ceremony was held "privately." "I understand it took place i several months ago, but I do [not know the exact date or place," the archbishop's spokesman said. In New York, Prince Radzi­ wiU had refused to comment. "This is such a personal matter," he said, "I feel I cannot say anything about it." It was understood that that the princess had based her ap- ipeal for annulment on the [grounds that Canfield, a non- Catholic, had no intention of having children when they were married in Washington in 1953. She and the prince were married in a civil ceremony in 1959. The Polish-born Prince Radri- will was married twice before he wed Mrs. Kennedy's sister. But there were no impediments, to his marrying again, since his first marriage was annulled and the second was a civil ceremony. Msgr. Brennan, a native of Shenandoah, Pa., said he did not know the grounds for which an annulment was granted to Princess RadziwiU. "I wasn't on the case," he' said. There are 18 judges on the Rota besides Brennan. However, it was reported in New York—where the Radzi- wiUs are staying—that the annulment was granted on the ground that Canfield, a non- Catholic, did not intend' to have children when lie married the former Lee Bouvier in a CathoUc ceremony in Washington in 1953.

The Grand Jury questions if there is a proper inventory, including location, of aU property under the jurisdiction of the Aviation Bureau — especially ac quisitions from U. S. Govern ment surplus. RECOMMENDATIONS: 1. That an Aviation Advisory Commission of 5 members be appointed by the Board of Su pervisors to replace the 13 man Committee. That this Commission be in fact a direct advis ory agency to the Board of Supervisors. 2. That the Board of Supervisors make a review of the Aviation Bureau looking to sounder administration, including property management. And that this review specifically include a more adequate system for audit of leases, fixed base operations, property and surplus goods. 3. That buildings on airports comply with standard code regulations for Building and Safety. 4. That BuUding Inspectors and Fire Prevention Officers be required to make regular inspec tions of facilities and submit written reports. That in cases where presently leased buildings faU to meet codes, that said representatives recommend reasonable means and methods for progressive compliance to County standards, and that the Aviation Director assist in bringing these recommendations about.

A spokesman for the council, John V. Newman, said the council based its decision largely on the unemployment situation in the country and the narrow margin by which the one- year extension of the bracero biU passed Congress. Opponents of the use of Mexican nationals for farm labor in the United States have contended that the jobs are taken away from U.S. workers. The council, which represents most large Thomas Braden, president of the State Board of Education, will open the 33rd University of Redlands Writers' Week tomorrow, with a speech on "The Right to Read." ] And Eugene Burdick, author .of "The Ugly American" and "Fail-Safe," wiU deliver an address at 8 p.m. that evening on his new "Presidential" novel, soon to be pubUshed. More than a thousand authors, teachers, students and readers are expected to attend each of the main pubUc speeches in the University's Memorial Chapel. . Eleven lectures and 'discussions by professional writers of fiction and non-fiction have been scheduled for the 1964 Writers' Week at the University of Redlands tomorrow through Friday. Braden, pubUshcr of the Oceanside "Blade-Tribune," is expected to affirm the "right to read" as fundamental to' the democratic process in his 10 a Angels start spring training PALM SPRINGS (UPI)—The Los Angeles Angels start spring training today for the 1964 baseball season with 25 pitchers and six catchers scheduled to report to manager Bill Rigney.

Thurman was assigned to the Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana Area. farm interests in California, has claimed that the amount of domestic workers does not meet the demand for "stoop" crop picking done by braceros. However, Newman said the council recognizes "the serious unemployment situation." Also, he said, the decision was based on "what is reported to be the wiU of the American people as expressed by members of Congress." The Council wiU urge the state to help it study how to fUl the ranks of domestic farm workers, and possibly how to attract unemployed farmhands from other states who would be willing to do the type of work done by braceros.

In view of past events, it should result in a crushing reaUzation by t b e American people of just how degraded the U. S. leadership in the world has become. In an inadequately veiled appeal, Mr. Rusk "suggested" the people of the U. S. could, by consumer boycott, probably provide the influence necessary to urge our allies to desist from providing tools of war to Castro Cuba. What makes it aU the more fantastic is the fact that citizens groups who last year engaged in a buyers strike against Communist goods sold in this nation were denied, by court injunction, their right to express their animosity against commerce with our enemies. State denies Cuban patriots the right to attack Communist power which has stolen their nation, prosuses to "give every co=s:cer£tio2" ID resegocaiios of the Panama Canal treaty as the result of a riot by a handful of Castro Communist agitators, accepts the prospects of a Communist British Guiana before another year shall have passed and then makes no effort to compensate for her glaring errors of "judgement" in double crossing the friendly, pro West regimes of the Congo, Laos and Viet Nam. State even sells wheat to the Russians. The only times, since WWIIj that the U.S. has earned any degree of respect in world politics! were when we showed strength such as when Ike sent troops in-l to Lebanon, his firm stand over the offshore islands of China, and JFK's firm stand on Cuba, which, for a fortnight, the peoples of the world thought was sincere. The support for the U.S., in each case, was immediate, especially the Cuban situation. South and Central America were never so united as in support of our display of strength in October, 3962. Worldwide Communism has never retreated except before strength. Goldwater's suggestion to go in and turn the water back on for Guantanamo wouldn't bring war. A failure to do so could bring slavery. Warren Hooper Rt. 1, Box 576, Redlands Site Condemnation At Kingsbury Questioned j Editor Facts: [ As taxpayers and parents of elementary school children, we should like to raise the following questions regarding the proposed condemnation of t h e Luther EUison grove on West Palm avenue, for use as an addition to Kingsbury School: 1 — If this property is condemned now, are there funds available for its development? 2 — Has any professional school planner given approval to this long, narrow, corridor-type access to additional school grounds, involving crossing a street (Clifton court) and ending np two blocks- from the administrative offices? 3 — If the school is thus divided, what arrangements are to be made to make nursing, cafeteria, and office facilities abaUable to these "orphans" at the upper end of the school ground? 4 — Since, for the last eight years, the school board has repeatedly changed its policy re garding the purchase of this property, how can we as tax payers be sure that this wiU not occur again after the property is purchased? 5 — If the board is serious in its intent to enlarge the school, why was the former HiU property overlooked before improvements which have added considerable to its value? (This property was offered to the board). 6 — Why not purchase the older homes on Cajon street be tween Cypress and Clifton to complete an orderly growth? This would square the school property and place it across from the large church where mutual cross walks could be worked oat 7 — Why add on to Kingsbury School, which is not overcrowded, rather than build the new Mariposa School for which bonds have been voted? or enlarge Kimberly School which is bursting at the seams? 8 — How wiU parent traffic and bus traffic be handled on the narrow, dead-end Clifton Terrier swim season opens with CIF relays An entry,of eight Terrier mer men into the C.I.F.
