6 - Monday, Feb. 24,19M Redlands Dally Facts Red lands weather.... lovely and clear but dry From that typical Chamber of Commerce viewpoint. Bed- lands weather has been beautiful for nearly a month. The mountains encircling the valley have loomed skyward inj all the glory — almost fully visible during the day. And myraid of blinking lights at night. But even the Chamber of Commerce might have to admit there have been a couple of drawbacks. For one thing, this has per haps been the "windiest" February in many a year. The north and east winds off the desert have kept the atmos phere clear of smog, true. But they have also kept the streets littered with debris and made traveling east and west on the hazardous side. Too, those winds have done another thing. They have held back one very importaint ingredient—rain. It has been one month Saturday—Jan. 22—since the last substantial rainfall pelted the valley. There was IVi inches on Jan. 21-22. But since that time, there was a dribbly .02 on Feb. 12 and a stingy .03 on Feb. 16. the season total is just 8.16 inches. Thus, for the first time since the end of August, rainfall for the season is below average. Is there still hope? Well, the careful records analyzed by the San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation district show there is, perhaps. On a frequency basis, for in stance, there has been rain more often on March S over The rainfall year, which begins on July 1, started out just great By the end of September, there was 3.10 inches, By the end of October, 4.35 inches and by the end of November, 6.43 inches. All far above normal. December, with only .05, was almost blanked. Then came January with another below-average month of 1.63 inches. • „ n m-~i <i,^ ,„„ Now, it is February 24 andj^ ™ ^ And, as a practical matter, .March should be good for at least three inches. Yet, February should have been, too. What does the Weather man say? Well, today he has some hopeful remarks. He believes it'll rain tonight, tomorrow and again this weekend. Perhaps all is not yet lost.

Republicans in Senate block farm bill action WASHINGTON (UPI)-Senate Republicans again blocked consideration of the administration's farm bill today. One GOP foe of the measure said Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman bas ample authority now to head off a drop in wheat prices. The objection which prevented Democratic leader Mike Mansfield from getting up the wheat- cotton bill was voiced by Sen. John G. Tower. R-Te.w, who said his farmers want to learn what's in the bill. Under the present parliamentary situation in the Senate, Mansfield can bring up the farm bill only by unanimous consent. Tower waved a sheaf of telegrams which he said were from Texas farmers asking for a delay on the farm bill. Sen. Jack Miller, R-Iowa, backed Tower's argument that more time is needed. Mansfield is fast running out of time. Leaders tried Friday to start debate on the measure but Sen. John Williams, R-Dcl., objected. Administration supporters are concerned that unless the bill is voted on early this week, it will be shunted aside as action on the civil rights bill be- ins. The expected filibuster of the rights measure could delay the farm bill so long that it's passage would be too late to affect spring crops planted this year. The wheat section of the legislation would restore expected farm income loss by giving growers who limit their acre age higher price supports through the use of redeemable marketing certificates. The cotton clause would pro vide indirect subsidies for textile mills which would be paid through traders in an effect to increase domestic sales to U.S. mills. It would also give direct payments to producers who agree to limit planting. in single market steers, as did; Don Buyak and Don Taylor Kenny McKibban. with Jeffjboth won firsts in Swine Single Hudges a third place.

The Joint Legislative Retirement Committee ordered immediate preparation of an emergency proposal for a SI0O.00O appropriation during the current special session of the Legislature to finance a 2-year evaluation of the spiralling retirement program. Projected liabib'ties of the fund are currently estimated at $2 billion dollars. Assemblyman Don A. Allen of Los Angeles, chairman of the 6- man joint committee, said the intent of the order is to develop positive retirement fund revision for submission to the entire Legislature at a special call in 1966. The committee's decision to proceed with a long-range study of the teacher retirement program came as both victory and defeat for leaders of the move to secure improved retirement benefits for teachers trained and experienced outside of Calif. Hall were in attendance. Ansiel to oppose Dana for supervisor Fred H. Ansiel Jr., a teaching principal in the Amboy school district, has announced that he will oppose incumbent Ross Dana for supervisor of the 1st District in the forthcoming June primary. The 1st District encompasses most of the county's desert and mountain areas. Mr. Ansiel said he is a former teacher at Barstow and principal at Fort Irwin, holds a degree from Northeastern State college and has taken graduate work at the University o£ Redlands and at USC. FIRST GAS TAX NEW YORK (UPI) — The motorist, if he wishes, can celebrate the 45th anniversary of the gasoline tax this year. Oregon started it with a one cent per gallon levy in 1919. The national average is just above 10 cents, including Federal and state levies. TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or ap pliances will find a ready mar ket through Classified Ads. I LEASE...
