The next shipment from New- York will be the "aft" segment which is scheduled to start its trip about the first week in March. All three segments arc scheduled to be assembled at Potrcro and put through a static test firing sometime in late spring or early summer. This giant solid fuel rocket is being developed under an Air Force contract. TIZZV AADIOS ' PUONOGRAPUS ?0P RECORDS Capitol Crier California GOP so anemic Democrats are concerned "There's something fishy about Lois. She enjoys classical music!" U. S. 395 included in proposal for improvement A new proposal by State Sen. Randolph Collier to add 2.697 more miles of California highways to the federal Interstate network could mean a vast improvement in travel conditions to San Diego and northerly to Bishop for residents of this area. For listed among the highways in his proposal is U. S. 395, the speedy but hazardous two-lane highway which most Redlands area residents use to get to Oceansidc and San Diego. While (he State Division of Highways has been slowly improving this highway, by creating four-lane passing areas from time-to-time, its inclusion in the federal system would permit the use of federal funds. Interstate highways are constructed with about 90 per cent federal financing (as was the case with the Redlands freeway which is Interstate 10). Sen. Collier, who is "Mr. Freeway" in legislative circles, pointed out that the Interstate Highway program is due to expire in 1972, but the present four-cent-per-gallon of federal gasoline tax will likely be continued. "If the federal government is going to continue to collect approximately S300 million annually from the California motorists, wc want assurance that this money will be returned lo California in the form of improved highways.

C. V. Kane, District Engineer in San Bernardino, said these parcels are part of larger parcels acquired for construction of the freeway through the City of Redlands. The sale will begin at 10 a.m. on the south side of the freeway on Eleventh street, with an irregular-shaped parcel of unimproved land, containing approximately 7.200 square feet. The minimum acceptable bid for this land, zoned R-2, is $700. Two other parcels of unimproved land will bc auctioned; one with 4,859 square feet located northerly of the freeway at the south end of Eleventh street: and thc other with nearly 5.000 square feet on thc northeast corner of Division street and Central avenue. The minimum acceptable bid for thc first is $300 while bidding may start at $345 for thc latter parcel. Both parcels arc zoned R-2. Commission favors Redlands annexations SAN BERNARDINO (CNS)- Two Redlands annexation proposals were approved Wednesday by thc Local Agency Formation Commission. Thc City of Redlands was the applicant in both cases. One re-i quest was for an annexation submitted several weeks ago. but delayed because no spokesman from Redlands was present to explain why the area involved did not extend all the way to Nevada street. Mayor Charles C. Parker informed the commission Wednesday that the city is not prepared to annex the additional area, which includes some buildings and residents. Approval was then voted for the original proposal which takes in about 5-acres just west of Alabama street between the south side of thc Redlands Freeway and thc Southern Pacific railroad tracks. ! The other annexation proposal was a small parcel of noncontiguous land that has a water well serving thc city. The By JACK GERMAIN Pacific Coast News Service SACRAMENTO — Don't look now, but the Republican Party in California is becoming so anemic even thc Democrats are getting concerned. Not that individual Republicans in individual places arc suddenly coming unglucd. But thc Grand Old Party just isn't up to snuff — if you'll pardon the expression — collectively. It is the opinion of many, in fact, that unless the old guard leadership of the GOP quickly recognizes it's whipping a dying elephant, the carcass may never rise again. Democratic club to meet Monday A meeting of the Redlands Democratic club will begin at S p.m. Monday in the community room of Security First National Bank. Reports of delegates returning from the C.D.C. state convention in Long Beach will be presented at this time. Highlights of thc speeches by President Lyndon Johnson. Governor Brown and Senator Eugene McCarth of Minnesota will bc discussed. Bob Minick and Ray Conatser will attend the Monday meeting and members of the club will have an opportunity to meet them at this time. All members and interested residents of the community are invited to attend the meeting. property, less than a acre in size, is located on Davidson street near Curtis lane, about one-half mile west of the Marigold Farms property. Commissioners were told the property is assessed at S450 and the improvements at $5,000. Only by annexation can the city avoid paying taxes on thc property. State law allows annexation of non-contiguous land, but thc final action must be approved by the Board of Supervisors. And there's more than just a little evidence to fit the analogy. Among the tell-tale signs most fresh upon the political trail is the current sad state of affairs surrounding the Republican 'challenge'" for thc U. S. Senate scat now precariously occupied by Democrat Clair Englc. The Democrats are bugged by a sticky dilemma of an unhealthy incumbent and an overabundance of eager heavyweight vote-getters diving for the same chair. i GOP Paralysed i But thc seemingly rudderless ! Republicans appear almost with- iout the faculties npcessary to 'pick up the golden egg. Even [a modestly muscled GOP candidate has yet to answer the rare knock of opportunity, and the |Engle post may well go by de; fault. | More conspicuous corroboration, of course, is written on the Statehouse walls. Here, only (Frank Jordan and the ghost of Hiram Johnson arc allowed to • carry thc Republican banner ; above half staff. ; Jordon is the only GOP resident of a constitutional office in i the Capitol, more because the Secretary of State's office is j considered a family heirloom. I than because of any party prow- i ess. Badly Outnumbered i In thc legislative chambers | things arc mathematically bet!ter but politically unimproved.| I On a nosc-to-nose partisan push. Senate Republicans! jcoudn't stop Senate Democrats Uvith anything short of a iThompson sub-machine gun. They are 13 against 27. j Over in the Assembly, the jGOP minority numbers 28 as 'against 51 Democrats. The im­ balance is sharply accentuated by the presence of the omnipotent speaker Jesse M. Unruh among the 51. although some observers might suggest that the slenderized "Big Daddy" may prove a boon to a future GOP rally. Assembly Minority Leader Charlie Conrad of Sherman Oaks, who might be likened to Lawrence of Arabia without a horse, still clings to a numerical bloc capable of snarling up a budget bill. But, the defection of only three votes from the caucus can sink the bloc. Thus far, Conrad has been able to hold things together reasonably well in the big partisan fights. On occasion, one or two chickens have flown the coop, but in such cases a counter-defector from Unruh's camp often sustains the precarious balance. Lines are Withered So, the once - mighty, still proud Republican cadre scrambles on. The front lines are withered, battered and diffused. The trumpets still sound and the drums still roll, but there isn't a veteran around who has been able to saddle thc white horse. The party as a practical political influence has virtually disappeared from the State Capitol. Even its vocal dissents against thc majority program barely stir an echo. But. there arc signs of unrest in the GOP trenches. The "young turks". tired of the constant defensive refrains and muffled voice, arc chomping for a chance to lead a new Republican charge. Chronologically, they stand at the foot of a political San Juan Hill with a summit in 1966. And from here, it's a long, long way to the top. SELL IT TOMORROW With low - cost Classified Ads lion.
