There may have been "Trouble with a capital 'T' in River City" but the audience reaction to the campus visit of Meredith Willson said things were "Swell" in Redlands.

Introduced by UR President Dr. George H. Armacost who proclaimed it "Meredith Willson Day," the composer treated all to a rousing, toe-tapping, scene-setting heart-warming glimpse behind the score.

"Every other instrument in the band has a music holder that can be used while marching — but it's a sad state of affairs when here in 1964 we have rockets and space ships and still haven't a device for holding music for the piccolo and flute player!" he declared.

The special meeting highlighted the Civic Day activities yesterday in which 28 high school seniors participated. First matter considered by the teenagers was a request by Leroy Gish, owner of Redlands Ambulance Service, for permission to move his operation to 41 West Colton avenue. He asked for a variance to allow his ambulance attendants to sleep in the building, located in a commercial district. The Council approved the request, noting that the ambu lance provided an important public service. Next, the Councilmen adopted a Traffic Commission recom mendation to place a snorkel mailbox on the north side of Citrus avenue, across the street from the old Lange and Runkel building. The Council then received a report that the proposed annexation of five acres west of Alabama between the Redlands Freeway and the Southern Pacific railroad tracks had been cleared through the Local Agency Formation Commission. It promptly scheduled a public hearing on the annexation for March 17, Signing of a contract not to exceed $20,000 was authorized with the American Aerial Sur vey company of Covina for de velopment of aerial photo graphs and contour maps of the Redlands area for the city Pub- i lie Works department.

Says With the Legislature meshed in the multifold strands of the biggest state budget in history, at least two familiar features stand out: 1. Again the total spending program is at an all-time high, S3.66 billion. This is an increase of nearly a half a billion dollars over the Governor's last proposal. 2. Once again support for local public education has been short-changed. A close examination of the Brown budget figures indicates that the state will be spending $90 million more than its anticipated revenues for the 1965 fiscal year. Despite a $100 million surplus last July, the Gov ernor's spending spree will liquidate all but $8.7 million by the end of the year. Tucked away in this "fancy- dan" political program is a "breach of faith" with our local school districts and home-owner taxpayers. While available sur Planners adopt program for small business A plan for allowing incidental commercial ventures within office buildings in the city's Administrative - Professional districts was adopted by the Planning Commission yesterday. A zoning ordinance amendment approved by the city planners would permit such operations as coffee shops, prescription pharmacies and medical or sickroom supply outlets in tha A-P zones along Brookside avenue and Cajon street. / Under the plan, stringent requirements and conditions must alone. The whole business [be met before a conditional should be cut from the budget.[use permit would be granted for as the project duplicates work)"incidental commercial uses that is more properly done by of last session. Now, we find the Governor swiping some $15 million from the school kids so he can indulge his Administration in "nice but questionable" spending programs. An illustration of this sort of thing is the Governor's proposal that the state technical assistance program to Chile be continued, at a cost of more than S40.000 a year for two salaries the federal government. For California to indulge in "state foreign aid programs'" is patently ridiculous. I ask you, why should California taxpayers underwrite a unilateral state program of international technical assistance when they are already being well-plucked for federal foreign largess? The Governor might be well advised to practice a few- economies and take care of the clearly related and subordinated to the permitted offices and which provide services for tenants and patrons of the building in which they are located." The requirements are designed to make the commercial use unobtrusive. Principal conditions are that the uses must be located within the main buildings; that no external signs or displays are permitted; that customer access must be from within the building and that the total floor area of the incidental operation must not exceed 10 almost completely eliminated by a loss of Green River last week, travel to meet the California CC team tomorrow at Whittier.
