Legg, Redlands district meteorologist for the Fruit Frost Service. While temperatures have still been dipping near the danger point the past few mornings, the frost season is considered over by this time of year and Jlr. Legg left today for a new assignment in Napa.

A diurnal difference of 49.1 degrees is seldom found in a mature orange grove un der normal irrigation," he emphasized. In his specific notes on orchard heating, he pointed out that light, scattered firing on the colder, low ground locations was necessary on Dec. 11-12, Dec. 12-13, Jan. 3-4, Jan. 8-9, Jan. 9-10, Jan. 10-11, Jan. 1213, Jan. 13-14, Jan. 15-16, Feb. 6-7 and Feb. 14-15. On a comparison basis, 196364 will go down in the record books as having the most nights below 32 degrees (49) since the 1956-57 season (50) or since the cold 1948-49 season (70). Ralph Kirsch of Redlands files for Supervisor Western Heights hearing in recess The hearing on a plan to issue additional shares of water stock in the Western Heights Water company conducted by the State Division of Corp oration in Los Angeles yesterday was recessed until June 9 to permit the new board to present a new plan. Some shareholders had expressed concern over the original agreement when the first hearing was held more than a month ago. In tho interim, three new board members were elected at the annual meeting last month and it was disclosed at the hearing yesterday that the board is now making a survey among stockholders to determine the demonstrated need for more shares. .\s a result of that survey, the new board is expected to have a substitute dislribution plan available for hearing before the state in June. The hearing yesterday went info considerable detail on a well agreement between the company and Maurice Shumak- cr who was formerly president of the company but was not reelected to the board at the recent annual meeting.

He added Castro ready to restore water II.WANA (UPl) — Premier Fidel Castro said today that Cuba is ready to restore water supplies to the U.S. Naval base at Guanlanamo. (In Washington, the White House indicated the United States has no intention of accepting Castro's offer. Asked about the offer, Press Secretary Pierre Salmger pointed to President Johnson's recent announcement that the base would be made self-sufficient.) Ralph L. Kursch, a swmming pool repair contractor who lives on Sunset drive just outside the city, confirmed today that he will seek election as county supervisor from this, the third dis trict. Mr. Kirsch indicated several weeks ago that he was giving serious consideration to his can didacy and would make a decision during the filing period. Yesterday, he made his decision a firm one by paying the S200 filing: fee and taking out nominating petitions from JIrs Eleanor Felton, county regi strar of voters, Mr. Kirsch, 44, has lived at 31049 Sunset drive for the past six years and in California since 1924. He was a pharmaceutical salesman for seven years before coming to Redlands and lived in Covina. He is a graduate of the University of Southern California. He spent four years in the Navy during World War H and was in action in the South Pacific. He was released as a lieutenant. His current contracting business involves a special process for re-lining swimming pools which takes h i m from Palm Springs to Van Nuys, and points between. He and his wife have four children, Karen, 12;. Tom, 10; Jolm, 8; and Mike, 6, all of whom attend Sacred Heart i school. The following is a statement delivered to the Facts this morning by Sir. Kirsch (with' out quotes): I still believe that govern' ment should be 'by the people' when a man who has been in the same office for 20 years and desires another four years that office becomes a political dj-nasty! The voters can be assured that because of my youth and health I will not utilize this office as a source of retirement income, but devote my full time and energy to the job. What would happen to a candidate for public office if he should forsake the successful political formula of kissing babies, out promising the opponent, and handing out cigars? Is it possible to be completely honest as a candidate and not get shallaeked at the polls? I am running for supervisor because of my love and inter- RALPH L. KIRSCH est in this county which stems from boyhood camping trips: the challenge, and the satisfaction of doing the kind of work I like, am interested in and would be most efficient at. Is it conceivable, that, to wm an election I must join my oppon cnt by gallantly announcing my candidacy witii the soul stirring proclamation that if the voters want me and need me I will be big enough to accept this 'oft times thankless task"? Another opponent, states that 'he is alarmed by the lack of interest in our economic stagnation due to lack of leadership' I say this area is. going to boom irregardless of campaign promises, leadership, or individual personalities. Geographically San Bernardino is next in line to know the staggering growing pains that some of our neighboring counties have experienced or are now suffering. The explosive growth in in dustry and population wll be as much or more so as the'urs. am not promising economic growth, I am saying it is in evitablc. A campaign promise I guarantee will be kept is to prepare and mim'mize the re sultant conjesUon, inadequate roads, crowded classrooms, etc. I leave it to the voters if they will or will not accept my opponents' simple solution to the 'economic stagnation' of our area: 'better leadership'.

Says Hartzell to seek more flood control benefits Concern that Redlands may not be getting dollar-for - dollar value from its county Flood Control taxes was exprcfscd by City Councilman William T. Hartzell last night. Harfzcll was authorized by the Council to voice his qualms at the Zone 3 Flood Control Advisory Board meeting on Friday at which the 1364-65 budget will be adopted and the tax rate set. 'It appears there is room for some difference of opinion on how this money should be spent," Hartzell noted. He pointed out that Redlands tax payers will pour more than $100,000 into the next year's pro posed $274,000 Zone 3 budget. "Yet the only 1964-65 budget Triple by 1974 Telephone statistics indicate heavy growth If telephone service is an ac curate measure of population that growth, this area will be three times the size it is today by the end of 1974; according to statis- lics presented to the Redlands -., , , The second job the Board-Board of Realtors this morning the interstale freeway svstcni. cleared the way for bidding onibv Lou J.

The second speaker was Robert Kahl, president of Redlands Fedral Savings and Loan association. He, too. admitted that there are some problems ahead in some types of bousmg but that housing designed to meet a community need will continue to find a ready market. From the telephone company standpoint, Mr. Seitzinger notes that all its projections have to be based on a residence or business "after it is built, sold and moved into" because only thenj is a telephone instrument instal-l led. i -Ml his projeclionr,. therefore ' In the past few years, t h c rate of growth has been from about 600 to 900 new phones each year. The forecasted gain for 1964, remains in about that same ratio. In numbers, 3.824 new services. For 1965, the gain will be 4.085 or up to a total of 36,000 by the end of 1965. Then. Mr. Seitzinger slated gains are projected at about 4. item directly beneficial to Red' lands residents is a $3,500 expenditure toward the cost of a S20,000 aerial mapping project authorized by the City Council. "And the city's original request for the aerial mapping was for S7.000 from the Flood Control District," Hartzell as sorted. Hartzell concedes, however, that flood control projects outside the city arc beneficial to Redlands. One of his objectives at Friday's Zone 3 Board meeting will be to get a clarification on how certain projects affect the city's drainage. He will also make an effort to have four specific requests included in the 1964-65 budget: 1—Initiate and complete a sur vcy of the Zanja drainage through east Redlands. 2-Obtain the fuU 57,000 for the city's aerial mapping program. 3—Widening of the Tennessee street bridge at Pine strct. 4—A continuing program for acquiring Zanja right-of-w a y within the city limits.

Rabies is not the Issue Editor Facts: Speaking of freedom, I great ly appreciate the freedom to walk along the beautiful streets of Redlands without the danger of encountering loose and po tentially hostile dogs. During an hour's walk with my dog last Sunday, I revelled in the beauty of flowers and trees, the singing of birds, and the zestful exercise. I was very grateful to encounter no loose dogs along the way. In the past, our walks have been restricted to areas where we were not apt to be approcahed by barking, menacing - looking dogs. I sympathize with our mail carriers who have suffered from so many painful dog bites in the past. My mother was once bitten by a neighbor's dog, so I know from her what a horrible experience that can be and how, long it can take for treatment and healing. I would not want my dog bothering people as they walked by or trespassing on neighbors' property. And I would not dream of endangering my dog's life by allowing her to run on the streets where she might be injured or killed by a passing car. If a person truly cares for his dog's welfare, he will try to pro vide a fenced yard or take his dog for frequent walks so that he can get needed exercise without roaming the streets. Even if there were no risk of rabies, I would favor retention and enforcement of the leash law. Gertrude Hagum 1317 College avenue IVhat is an Assemblyman? What does he do: These ques tions and many more are frequently asked. In response lo several recent requests, I will discuss these and other items of state governmental interest. San Bernardino County has two Assemblymen, elected every two years to serve and represent the County as members of tbe State Legislature. In short, an Assemblyman has the same responsib'ilities in the state government that a Congressman has in tbe federal government. In California, members of both bouses of the Legislature are paid a salary of 1500 per month and expenses when on legislative business. In addition they are funushed with funds to maintain a district legislative office for the handling of legislative business when the Legislature is not in session. Store has new idea for cigarette soles MILES CITY, Mont (UPI) A Miles City drug store has come up with a new cigarette advertising campaign. The store is giving away a free X-ray to every person who buys 52 cartons of cigarettes. for not having an opportunity to perform public service when it is so difficult to arouse taxpay ers interest in public affairs. Every county employe should be able to voice his opinion and perform work for or against projects that may require con sideration by a county agency, department, commission or Board of Supervisors, as long as it does not interfere with his faily work. We feel this policy should be changed, but if it is to remain, then certainly it should be enforced for everyone. Blooraington Committee Of THE TAXPAYERS RIGHTS ASSOCIA -nON Margaret Holtzman Corresponding Sec'y P.O. Box 127 Bloommgton The job of representing San Bernardino County has become a full-time job. Our County with its vast area and its diversified and energetic economic complex requires understanding and fortitude. As your Assemblyman it is my duty together with all other members of the Legislature to work towards the solutions of our State's many problems. A conscientious legislator cannot be "aU things lo aU men". He must take a stand on every issue in a manner that serves the best interest of the majority of his constituents. No matter what decisions are made, some will not please. Tbe pressures can be tremendous. And must add, sometimes mistakes are also made. When that happens, tbe Legislature is duty-bound to rectify the mistakes at the next session. It must be remembered that the actions of one legislative body do not necessarily bind the succeeding one. Of increasing concern to many of us is the trend towards "a commission form of government". The creation over the years of special boards, commissions and agencies has developed tax-eating bureaucracies of such power that they are almost beyond control. They have become "special interest governments" all unto themselves. In some cases when a citizen is hauled before such a state agency for some alleged infraction, he is prosecuted, judged and sentenced by the same body. This is a dangerous trend, for although tbe accused may appeal to the courts for judicial review, it is time-consuming and exceedingly expensive. This type of government is harmful to the rights of tho "litUe guy". I think it is high time that the Legislature take a long hard look before creating any more such super-agencies. It should examine into the inexcusable delays and procrastination and high-handed activities of some of these hoards and their hearing officers. What do you think? Your opinions and suggestions are invited. Your letters should be addressed to me at the State Capitol. Sacramento.

"Before the end of this year, history will be repeating itself and our business office building, expanded by about S400,000 will once again be opening its doors at the 4th street address. "And this is the same location that, only last year, be cause it was overcrowded, necessitated the building of considerable office space at our yard on State street. 'Even today, my own'office is being relocated temporarily on the second floor. Central office equipment is slowly but steadily marching toward the very counters where the customers now pay their bills," he emphasized. benefit for Boy Scout Troop 77, the newest troop in the Redlands Council. The luncheon will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to accommodate the various lunch times of the business community as well as the gen eral public. Bob Lawrence, scoutmaster of the troop, will also be the chief chef and will be assisted by other adult leaders of the troop and their wives. The new troop already has 17 boys on its roster who will assist as waiters during the benefit luncheon Saturday. Proceeds from the affair will go toward the purchase of tents and other scouting equipment which the troop now has to borrow in order to participate in the various outdoor activities. Menu for the Blarch 7 luncheon will include bam as the entre and boiled, buttered, par-| sley potatoes, buttered wax, beans, crisp, tossed salad, hot! Don't Bar Cotinty Workers From Civic Affairs Editor Facts: On February 18 you published an article in connection with our County Board of Supervisors having adopted a policy to prevent county employes from per- i forming outside work or ser' vices which may require consideration by any County Agency, Department, Commission or Board of Supervisors. Then why does our County Board of Supervisors allow John R. Sipe, director of business advisory services for County Superintendent of Schools, to be chairman and campaign for the incorporation of Bloomington which requires action before the Board of Supervisors and the Commission? The Board should enforce the policies they adapt. Despite the fact that this committee is against the incorporation of Bloomington, we sympathize with county employes rolls and butter, coffee or milk.i A.
