2 - Tuesday, Mar. 3, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts Fight appears to be developing Legislature faced with four school finance plar)s By PE VAN L. SHUMWAY SACRAMENTO (UPI) - The stage was set today for a legis laljve fight over school financing. At least four plans were either before the lawmakers or com ing up shortly to change the way the state distributes nearly SI billion a year to local school districts. Gov. Edmund G. Brown, who supports a countywide school tax and proposed an added S35 million in state aid to go witli it, hasn't turned in bis ideas into a bill yet—but that's expected soon. Other proposals came from Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Unruh, D-Inglewood; Senate Finance chairman George Miller Jr., D-Martinez, and Assemblyman Gordon Winton, D-Merced, member of the lower chamber Education Committee. Winton introduced h i s bill Monday and said it had been approved and recommended by the state Board of Education and drafted by the state Department of Education. The proposal (AB70) would provide about $81 million in ad ditional state funds for locaJ school districts plus an estimated $28 million through countywide equalization. "This measure is an attempt to bolster the state support of, public education in California to assist schools on the local level," Winton said. He called Ibe need for more local money desperate." In technical terms, Uie bill would add $20.35 per pupil per year to the state school fund increasing the state payment to $228.93. It also would increase equalization aid by $16 per pupil. The measure would boost the Mead to speak in series at Riverside Shepherd Mead, e.\ecutive- turned-author who seems to be "dogged by success," will speak in Riverside March 11, in University Extension's luncheon- lecture series, "E.xeeutive Pro file." His talk is biUed as an "advanced course" in the topic of his well-known book, "How to Succeed in Business without Keally Trying." The program, which will be held at noon in the California Room of the Mission Inn, is the second in tliis spring's series with four noted speakers presenting a spectrum of opinion on the general theme, "profile of Big Business." RHS journalism students in contest Zone change wins approval near Yucoipa SAN BERNARDINO rCNS)- A zone change to allow development of a 14-acre subdivision in an area southeast of Vucaipa was approved Monday by the County Board of Supervisors. The applicants for the rezoning, from use for agriculture to that for single family dwell ings, \sitli 7,200 square feet of area for a building site, were Villa Vista, Inc. and Bryan In dustrial Properties. Their property is on the west side of Bryant, north of County Line road. Neil Pfulb, county planning director, told Supervisors that the County Planning Commission approved the change of zone, dependent upon filing of an acceptable tentative map showing how the land would be developed. The map has been submitted, with dedications for road widening. The land is to be divided into 54 homcsitcs. Ten journalism students of Redlands Senior High school participated in the All-San Bernardino and Riverside County High Schools Newspaper writing Contest last Saturday at San Bernardino VaUcy College. "On the spot" writing was feature of the Tourney with San Bernardino High sweeping top honors. At stake were a SlOO scholarship and eligibility for finals in an AU-Southem California writing contest scheduled for AprU 11th. Participating for Redlaads High were Jill Anderson, Nancy Barnard, Carol Booghcr, Joy Brown, Donna Grace, Mary Jo Guia, Kerry Hartwig, Bill Klaus ner, Michele Marcott, and Sue Williams. Advisor Jlr. William F. Nance accompanied the group. The competition was conducted by the local chapter of the National Association of Journalism Directors, with over-all coordination under Mr. Sam Feldman, San Bernardino County Coordinator of English and Journalism. The morning sessions were limited to the writing of feature, editorial and sport stories, after all entrants particiapted in the writing of news presentation by .Airs. Alice Chous of Pacific High. junior college program by $25 per unit of average daily attendance to $600. In addition, it would adopt countywide equalization as sug gested by the governor. Winton called this provision a "much needed reform" that would help about 90 per cent of the children in public schools. Unruh's plan, introduced in early February, would abolish all but approximately 108 of the state's 1,585 school districts and add $75 million in state aid to schools. The Assembly speaker proposed to allow only one district for each of the state's 58 counties, plus the districts noi»' contained by charter cities. Miller's proposal, expected to be introduced this week, would abolish so - called "basic aid" under which all school districts receive $125 annually per student regardless of need. It would place all districts on "equalization aid" which is apportioned on the basis of need. The lawmaker estimated his proposal would trim $20 million from aid to wealtliier districts for redistribution to poorer areas of the state. It would require a constitutional amend ment. Other legislative developments Engle — Assemblyman Tom Carrell, D-San Fernando, intro duced a bill to permit the Dera ocratic State Central Committee to designate the party nominee if U.S. Sen. Clair Engle is nominated for a second term in the primary but is physically un able to run. MTA—A bill calling for creation of a Southern California rapid transit district was introduced by Sen. Thomas M. Rees, D-Los Angeles. He said it could lead to the start of construction of a "practical rapid transit system" for the Los .Angeles area within two years. Subdivisions — Assemblyman Lester A. McMillan, D-Los An geles, called for a legislative probe of senior citizen subdivi sions. He said there had been several complaints and pointed particularly to the Seal Beach area. Harrisons Host To Visitors Recent guests at the Norton Air Force Base home of Maj. Gen. and Mrs. Bertram C.

Save and put to other uses. Old stockings can do many jobs for you. —To make sure a tecsnUy sanded surface is perfectly smooth, pull an old nylon stocking over your hand, rub the surface lightly and any rough spot will immediately make itselfj known. Use old nylons to polish mirrors and windows. The nylon leaves no lint and gives the glass a beautiful shine. Old nylons make beautiful braided rugs. First remove the color and then dye in bright, gay colors. — ARTHUR m& JOSEPHINE REAY Society Editor General Bank Presents Travelogue For Contemporary Club Program Mrs. Marquardf New Golden Age Club President Jlrs.

MAKefHIEWQS Young children accept the death of a loved one more real- 1 isticolly if they are taken briefly to the mortuary. GIRLS — This tttter provtt that w* girls have no inonep> oly cn ingenuity. — POLLY DEAR POLLY — Wrap your coat hangers with old nylon hose and trim with pompoms of nylon. Those who make pot holders with a loom and strips of jer sey can do the same with ny Ion hose. Have you run out of space for hubby's ties and your own belts and scarves? Most everybody knows how to make a birdcage out of coat hangers. I made half a birdcage, leaving the hangers as they were. 24 of them were wired close together and hung on the closet door. This takes care of at least lOO ties. - KITTY GIRLS ~ Perhaps some of you are like me — you do not know how to make • birdcage from coat hangers. To make the support, bend a hanger to a long thin shape by pushing in the outer comers. The cage shape is made from the orher hangers with the bottom wire of each pushed up toward the hook so the lower part resembles a broad, in> verted V. Wire these hangers together through the lower corners and secure to the hanger support in a perpendicular position, one end to the hook and the other toward the bottom of the support. Hang up and the hangers will flare out to give the impression of half a birdcage with hooks extended all around the outside center. — POLLY Delta Zetas Meet Tomorrow Riverside Area alumnae of Delta Zeta sorority will meet at 7:30 tomorrow evening at the home of Mrs. Roger Chaussee, 2009 Garretson street, Corona.

The travelogue concluded with representative views of India, ending with several' pic tures of the Taj Mahal taken at various hours and including some inner scenes for a closer look at the exquisite workmanship. General Bank also photo- iwaphed the new building in Agra which is expected to be just as impressive the Taj and which features the same delicate inlay patterns of semi-precious stones in marble.

Eita Robinson, Anna Kuite and Ida DumonL 'The frightening thing about growing older" writes a woman reader of this column, "is see ing how a commum'ty pushes its older citizens aside. My husband and I still have a few years to go before retirement, but I know already what will happen to us when that day comes, because I have seen it happen to those who are older than we are. "They aren't asked to give up membership in their clubs and organizations — but they are never given any important jobs to do. If they speak up in meeting, they are listened to with impatience. Younger members expect older ones to take a back seat and keep quiet. "Nobody calls on older peo pie who have time, experience and, often, wsdom to do com munity work. They are left with nothing important to do while younger citizens take on more jobs than they can do weU. "Social life all too often ex eludes the older age group—' no matter how much they have to offer, or how socially active they have been through the years. Even though I am confident that my husband and I will never lose our interest in others or the world about us— it must be hard to stay active and alert and happy in old age when the world loses interest in you." That's quite a harsh indictment, hut unfortunately it's true. Just look around and see what is happening to those who have reached old age ahead of you. Do you want it to happen to you, when it's your turn? It will, unless your community makes a real effort to include its older citizens in its active life. Garden Club Studies Art Of Bonzai Planting Bonzai planting was demonstrated at The .^owhead Garden Club's recent meeting at the home of Mrs. Charles L. Wimberly, 303893 Sunset drive.
