Water pollution board lame ducks revealed The state Water Pollution Control Board, serving the Santa Am basin in which Redlands is situated, is operating with three members whose terms have expired according to Art Nauman in the Riverside Press. This is the board that was orianally^ headed by Horace P. Hinckley of Redlands. Air. Nauman's account (without; quotation marks) follows: Governor Brown probably is too busy to worry about this: Three members of the Santa Ana River Regional Water Pollution Control Board are continuing to serve even though their appointments expired long ago. One of these is former Riverside City Councilman U. L. Voris. A fourth member of the seven-member board resigned some months ago, and still hasn't been replaced. Officialdom locally isn't overly exercised about it, but there has been some private grumbl­ ing. The board's job is to see that the river water, used by thou sands of persons between San Bernardino and the sea, stays as clean as possible. According to the law, mem-j bers serve a specified term, but stay in office until either reappointed or replaced by the governor. The appointments are political. The board is comprised of one member • associated with each of these fiinetioos within the Santa Ana River watershed: an orgamzation dealing! with water supply or conservation; irrigated agriculture; mu nicipaUties; counties; industries that produce industrial waste; recreation and wildlife agencies; and the public at large. Voris was named to represent the cities. His term e.xpired Sept 30, 1963. He was defeated in a bid for re-election in AprU, 1963. The city's legal staff takes the position that the law im­ plies the board member w h o represents municipalities should be eitijer an elected official of, or employed by, a city. If true, this interpretation makes Voris ineligible to serve. Another board member, Clinton Flynn, of Orange County, who represents wildlife and recreation agencies, has been serving without appointment since September, 1962, -when his term expired, accordmg to the board's Riverside office. The term of Nancy Smith, a San Bernardino County supervisor, also expired last Septem her. The member who resigned was Haze! Lewis of Orange County. She represented the public at large. Members don't get paid, but they do get mileage and lunch expenses on meeting days. Some board observers report that because of these "lame duck" situations, quorums have occasionally been difficult to get at meetings.

Humane Society opposes baby Easter pets The California Branch, Humane Society of the United States, today issued a statement condemning as cruel the Easter traffic in live baby chicks, ducklings, and rabbits. Belton P. Mouras, Society Executive Director, said that 95 per cent of the young ani mals will be dead or abandoned withm two weeks. "Every year at Uiis time," Mouras said, thousands of tiny aniihals, placed in the bands of unknow ing children, are mauled, crushed or squeezed to death. The ones that survive mishandling are often abandoned after they've outgrown their baby- cuteness. Baby chicks, rabbits, and duckling s," he continued, make poor house pets. They are easily frightened and quickly try to hide. This lack of cooperation frusb-ates a child who wants to hug the fuzzy, wiggly animal." Accordmg to Mouras, the Hu mane Society advocates buying children realistic toy animals at Easter time. He explained that children happily accept these toys after being instructed about the delicate nature of live animals.

Federal job insurance poy may be delayed The San Bernardino local office of the California Department of Employment yesterday began notifying persons who are receiving federal un- empfoymcnt insurance benefits to anticipate a temporary in terruption in payment soon. Manager Eve Mclahi said fed eral funds for pajonent of benefits to former civilian emptoyes of the United States Government and to former members of the armed forces are nearly exhausted. If the depletion point is reached, it will be necessaryj to suspend payments until the Federal Government makes additional funds available. California State Unemployment Insurance benefit payments wiii not be affected. Manager Mclain said further that if an interruption of federal payments actually occurs, claimants should continue to report and certify their unemployment in the usual manner. If they do, they will be paid the suspended benefits when funds are available. Otherwise, the back payments cannot be made. The preliminary notice is being given to claimants so they will not be taken by surprise. If San Gorgonio Wild Area opened $160,000 for Olympics offered by Adams group San Gorgomo Ski Lifts, Inc., would contribute $160,000 for training potential U.S. Winter Olympic competitors, if the San Gorgonio Wild Area is opened to commercial recreation devel- [opment The pledge was made this week by Morgan Adams, Jr., president of San Gorgonio Ski Lifts, in a letter to U.S. Sena-j tor Hubert H. Humphrey, who has been critical of the United States' "poor eighth" showing, at the recent winter games atj Innsbruck. San Gorgonio Ski Lifts is a Los Angeles organization which has been campaigning for the opening of a 3,500 acre portion of the San Gorgonio Wild Area 20 miles east of Redlands, for development of winter recrea tion facilities. So far, the group's proposals have been re jected by the U.S. Forest Service. In response to Sen. Humph for development of skiing and efforts to bring victory to our 'Olympic competitors."

Much Sunshine The climate of Puerto Rico attracts 400,000 visitors each year. Here the sun shines 360 days a year and temperatures average 76 degrees Fahienheit, with only a 6-degree variation between] winter and summer. Adams wrote, "A public spirited group of 20 Southern Call- fomians has pledged $160,000, for training expenses over the next eight years for potential Winter Olympic competitors in this area.. "The only condition of the pledges is that a small porfionj of the vast San Gorgomo Wild Area in San Bernardino County be opened to limited entry iwinter recreation facilities.' He continued: "We will be most happy to make available our proposed skiing and winter recreation £a-j cilities witijout cost to Winter Olympic team trainees as it has always been our intention to foster Alpine competition. These facilities can serve both the Olympic hopefiil and the recreational skier, if we can but convince Sec of Agriculture Orville Freeman that this addi tional enjoyment of the mountain will not jeopardize his fine conservation program." Citing Mt San Gorgonio's po-! tential, Adams' letter explained: "This upper portion of San Gorgomo above 9000 feet is absolutely unique for skiing as far as Southern California is concerned, being the only reliable snow area with suitable terrain within a-350 mile radius of Los Angeles. It is only 85 miles from the center of town and is an ideal traming area for winter sports, with Olympic size downhill courses of more than 2200 feet vertical descents, with slalom and giant slatom possibilities as good as any in Europe, with an excellent site for ice skating training to develop distance speed skaters, and mndi terrain suitable for, bobsled and luge courses.
