4 - ThHfS, April 2,1964 Retihnds Daily Fatts SERVICE BILL - This is fhe new formot of ths city lerviee bill Redlandert will receive later this month. The changed ap­ pearand of the wafer, sewer and rubbish collection bill re- suits from the switch to an IBM punch card system in calculating and preparing the service charges for mailing to homeowners. New electronic billing system for city water Homeowners will get an un familiar looking bill this month when the city Finance Depart ment converts its utility billing to electronics processing. From now on, charges for water, sewage and rubbish disposal will be computed by an IBJI punch card data proces sing system. Except for the format of the bill mailed them, homeowners won't be affected by the changeover to electronic billing, noted Finance Officer lUchard Anderson. First mailings of the 10,000 city service bills is expected about April 10. The punch card system will speed up the billing process and at less cost per bill. Just how much ^TU be saved can't be determined until fhe electronic process has been in use for a period of time. "This volume woric is what justifies the city have the punch card system," Anderson stated, "it has the ability to absorb future growth without fairing additional personnel." He added, "Once the ma chines are set up they require no additional tending. This frees personnel to go to other worlc.' ' As iin example of the time saving factor, Anderson noted that manual calculation of one boolc of water meter readings (about 300 homes) required as . much as one day. Tlie punch card system can calculate consumption and convert that figure to a cash charge for the same number of homes in one hour. "The likelihood of error has also been greatly reduced," he pointed out Calculating .the city service bills was formerly a Public Works department responsibil^ ity. To take advantage of the IBJI system, the work has now been shifted to the Finance department. "The previous billing system was extremely well run," An^ dersoD emphasized, "but the machmes are designed for volume work and are less e pensive in the long run." The IBM punch card system was installed a year ago. The city's entire accounting proce dure has been converted to it. Metcalf says he sees no global conflict FFA members attend annual awards banquet Eight Future Farmers ot America from Kedlands High School will be among 80 FFA youths to be honored this eve ning at the annual FF.\ Proj' ect Competition Awards B a n- quet to be held at the Ilohday Inn by the octopus. Representing Redlands in the competition, sponsored by t h e Security First National Bank, will be Danny Francos, John Buckmaster, Bob Buckmaster, Dennis Boyle. Larry Jacinto, Joe Trenery, Kenny JIcKibban, and Phil Disparte. The banquet concludes a sc­ ries of competitions among FFA members at high schools in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. The boys will learn tonight how they finished when they will receive either a gold or sil ver certificate. In addition, each boy will receive a gold FF.A. tie clasp from the sponsoring Security Bank. The annual competition is held under the administration ot the State Department of Education. Agricultural Education Department, in co-operation with the bank. It is designed to stimulate interest in farming careers among high school students. The boys will be accompanied to the banquet by school officials as well as bank leaders. 'I see no global conflict", said John C. Metcalfe, Wash mgton news analyst and prize v^lnning journalist during bis discussion of "The United States and Mr. Khrushchev' last evening as a Commumty Forum speaker in Memorial chapel at the University of Redlands. Mr. Metcalfe analyzed many of the problems faced by the leaders of this country and Russia and came to the conclusion that in his opinion there was no danger of war between then: two countries. 'But, while we do have the preponderance of power, and since Russia is not going to move, it seems to me that we can afford to be a little tougher. It is nonsense to keep on being afraid of the Rus sians". Earlier, he described President Lj-ndon B. Johnson as being "very reaUstic — very rough — the opposite of the image presented, for instance, over television". No man, he said, knows as much about the operations of government. He is, according to the speaker, a specialist in domestic affairs and not recognized as an expert in foreign affairs, an area in which he must "learn, and quickly", commented Mr. Met- caUe. President Johnson is not an.x- ious to confer with Mr. Krush­ chev now, he said, "maybe after the election" and "I think Mr. Krushchev will go along troubles of his own.' He expressed the opinion that the . Soviet leader's problems may be much greater than are kno\»Ti. "We have found from experience that, in a dictatorship, it is difficult to ascertain the truth. They don't want you to see their failures." He examined what he called the "splintering" of the Communist apparatus itself with particular • emphasis on the Chinese Communist party. Of the threatened split with China, Mr. Metcalfe expressed the belief that it will not become real split, because both have the same goaL "It is in differences of approach that the, feud lies," he concluded. He attributed the influence of NATO for the loss of the drive of Communism in Europe, but said that while it bad lagged on this continent, the opposite was true, in the Far East where "China can frighten to death the nations along her rim." Of the Viet Nam situation, the speaker noted that there is a feeling among many that "we'll not win as things are going today". Many feel, he said, that there comes a time when the U.S. must Uke a calculated risk—make some kind of dra-! matic move of a defensive, rather than an offensive na ture. Mr. Metcalfe was introduced by Dr. Robert L. Morlan, pro fessor of government at the University of Redlands, who with this because he has many|was chairman for the evening.

Norton doubles switch center capacity The capacity of the Norton AFB switching center will be increased during the next two| years according to an announcement by the- Western Union Telegraph Company. WU said that it has just signed a $55,000,000 contract! with the Department of Defense to expand its Autodin communications system serving a huge automatic digital data network. The present system was com-1 pleted by Western Union for] the Department of Defense in 1963. This includes five major switching centers — of which Norton has one — and 350 outstations. The, new contract will add four switching centers making the augmented system capable of serving 2000 outstations. The new system will absorb many existing nationwide teletype networks now separately operated by the Department of Defense. Autodin is being developed in-, to a global system for the rapid interchange of telecommunications for the Defense Department, not only between military installations but also with industrial plants which provide direct support for the weapon systems. It is capable of hand ling - enormous quantities of narrative, data and other digitalized information. Each center employs two large solid state electronic com puters and other equipment for control, storage and relay of message and data communi cations. , Candlddfe's statement DeMir jyn stresses work in educational field DMV offices to remain open one night Forty-two ot the larger offices of the State Department of Motor Vehicles started stay ing open this week an additional two hours, from 5 to 7 p.m., on a onenight-a-week basis, it was announced today. In this area, the San Bernardino and Riverside JIV offices will both be open the added two hours, starting tonight and every Thursday evening.

Mr. Detlirjyn. a Redlands High school teacher of Ameri can government, states: "For the past ten years it has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with the young people of this commumty in the fine educational facilities provid ed by its citizens. It is my de- sre to serve this community in the city council because Red- ilands has afforded my family and me as unsqualed environ-j ment to that of any other community. "I feel that my educational background would prove val uable in the discharge of duties of a councilman. I expect the office to be time-consuming and am prepared to make the neces sary adjustments to fulfill my obligations to the citizens of this community. My background has not been purely academic. Previous to teaching, I worked as an hourly-rate employe in the automobile plants in Detroit I t b e n went into the contracting business until I began teaching in 1932. I believe these experiences have widened my perspectives and will be an asset in dealing with community problems and their effects on all the people. Plenty snow provides gc ski conditions CHARLES G. DoMIRJYN "Space does not permit the discussion of issues at this time however I would be happy to meet with any individual or group in discussing the problems facing our community at this time. "In my recent study of a His tory of Redlands High Curriculum, I found that ours is an unusual community, rich in c u 1- ture and tradition. It is my earnest desire to work in preserving and in furthering these things which have made R e d- lands the fine community it is today."
