He guided Lt. Edward Olmos of the Red lands police department and DcL Charles Callahan of the Sheriffs Office on a tour of Dorthsidc homes he had entered. On the strength of Brown's statement the Sheriff's Office is satisfied that Williams conducts cd an attack on a county resident two days before be (Williams) was killed. Three other cases in Redlands have been attributed to Williams. The robbery-rape incidents began in September. The most recent and most violent one occurred last Saturday. They all followed nearly the same patp tern — the intruder forced his way into the house, threatened the victim with a Imife, robbed) them and in many cases sexual ly assaulted them. AU attacks were reported behveen 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. Their frequency had caused great anxiety among residents north of the freeway, particularly among women who lived alone. Brown reportedly told police it was a matter of chance that his victims were aione in each case. The arrest climaxed weeks of frustrating investigation and stake-outs by police officers. Since February, police have maintained exfra psfrols north of Colton avenue from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. But still the attacks occurred. Lt Olmos said Brown's name entered the investigation through a routine check of possible suspects. A police photo of Brown was shown to one of the victim's on Wednesday and was identified as the assailant When officers later checked Brown's home, they discovered the two rifles takes la a Feb. 12 attack on North Church sfreet He was arrested when he returned home Wednesday evening. Lt Olmos stated that Brown failed six different lie-detector tests admhiistered yesterday. Brown is presently on parole from Riverside County for a robbery conviction. He served a sentence in San Bernardino County Jail in 1959 for grand theft auto. Changes m descriptions given by the dcUms led police to believe several weeks ago that, more than one person might be involved. Their supposition was substantiated by Brown's reported statement to detectives. 1- ' ' ' Search continues for frogmen SAN DIEGO (DPI) — A fuU search force of small craft helicopters and swimmers was set to search today for two Navy Frogmen who disappeared Taa- day night "The Frogmen vanished during ii-08|an underwater demolition exercise two miles offshore while trying to swim to a ship and set off flares simulating a mine atUck.

Kerpoint UNIVERSITY OF REDLANDS m -2121 JOHNNIE LEE BROWN Daily Facts pbotoi Bowen commends officers for cracking tough case Police Chief SUnley R. Bow en labeled tho arrest of rape- robbery suspect Johnnie Lee Brown as the toughest in the department's history, and ex pressed regret that the repeated attacks could not be stopped sooner. CUef Bowen praised poUce officers and patrolmen for their all-out effort, and revealed that many of them worked long hours without pay. A mounting weight of public an.xiety was lifted by the sus pect's arrest Chief Bowen's statement follows: •It is regrctUble that this case could not have been cleared sooner and thus averted the injuries and mental anguish suffered by the unfortunate victims. "Durmg the past few months since this suspect started his operations. I have felt keenly the lack of reassurance that I could give to the public that we of the police department were giving a 100 per cent effort to the apprehension of this suspect. "It was not possible to tell the public that we reassigned personnel from their usual shifts to cover the time when he was known to operate. Nor could we indicate that we were saturaUng the North area with officers who volunteered their own time and vehicles to pa trole this area all through the night "Even the top- supervisors and members of the staff worked double shifts for weeks on end. Actual hours of overfime ran into the hundreds, but no pay was asked for by any member of the department. "Now that the suspect is to custody we can relate the actual efforts we have given to the apprehension of this suspect, and to our knowledge no case in the history of the Redlands Pohce department has received so much contin uing and persevering all-out work on the part of all its members. "I wish to commend all per-J sonnel, and again state that I Redlands Schools go on vocation Today was it — ih* hit d»Y ef schoel before a wtek't Sprlnfl vacation in RedUnda public schools.

Gen. + r. date for the aty Council m the April 14 municipal election, has] submitted the following .statement at the invitation of the Daily Facts. This is the second in a series of campaign statements by the candidates. Mr Cummings is director of Alumni and University Relations at the University of Redlands. His statement follows without quotation marks: It is an almost impossible task trying to represent all of the people in the commum'fy, yet this is the prime responsibility of a good conncilman. I want to be a true representa tive of the entire populace of Redlands, not any special group, not any particular part of town, not any single cause championed by a few. Though minority views must carry great weight, the will of the majority — by the very nature of our form of government — has to prevail. It is plain to everyone that this city is in an important stage of transition from a pre- dominanUy agricultural area to that of a unique residential community. This transition in troduces problems, it also offers new opportunities. The problems call for reflection, patience and flexibility. The opportunities can for action. Specific issues come and go, but no single problem can be permitted to subordinate the broader horizon of community affairs. During my ten years as an admmistrator at the University, and while in busmess before moving to Redlands, I have bad experience in tong range planning; budgeting and finance; personnel administration; performance evaluation; business organization, law and management; and public mfor- mation and public services. If elected. I will work for careful review of the controversial ordinances, such as zoning, leash law and sanitation. JACK B. CUMMINGS I want to see greater emphasis placed on getting additional] clean light industry info Redlands in order that our tax base might be broadened, so that our tax burden might be reduced. A thorough, study of our street and traffic situation must be made. The facts about major issues before the council should be fuDy aured before action is taken, for the council and all citizen voters are partners in the key task of keeping Redlands a city of which we shall con tinue to be proud. I ask your active support and pledge to you my willingnesrto spend all the time and effort necessary to conscientiously perform the duties and respon sibilities of the office of Councilman. My family and I consider it a distinct privilege to live m a city as fine as Redlands. We're proud of its people, of its cultural interests, of its basic beauty, and of its apparent concern for what is right. My principal wish, if elected, is to help keep this a city in wliich we may all take pride. Redlands Daily facts Fridif.
