Weather Foreign policy, morality in government, and the exploding of the myth that President Lyn don Johnson is a conservative, are the three issues Republicans can use to win the November elecions. These were the major points in an hour and a half presenta tion by Rep. Robert J. Dole, R-Kansas, and Rep. John B. Anderson, R-Illinois, of the G.O.P. Paul Revere Panel to a dinner meeting of more than 200 peo pie sponsored by the San Bernardino County Republican Central committee and University of Redlands Young Republicans last night at the University Commons. Assemblyman Stewart Hinckley, R-Redlands, acted as em cee, and Robert Bierschbach, of Redlands, chairman of the central committee, chaired the meeting. Scrieut Blunder Congressman Dole termed the sale of wheat to Russia "the most serious blunder President Johnson has made since he came into power." "Why must we fight Communism on one hand and feed Communism on the other," Dole asked. "The wheat deal has opened the floodgate around the world to trading with the Com munists. How can we tell the British not to sell buses to Cas tro after we sell wheat to Khrushchev?" Dole pointed to the statement of J. Edgar Hoover, head of the F.B.I., in wluch he said: We are at war with Communism and the sooner every red- blooded American realizes it, the better off we will be." It is time we find out who our friends arc in the world," Dole warned. "Why were no concessions gotten from the Russians in this deal?" When we spend $52-billion for defense and in foreign aid to protect us from Communism, why did we turn around and bail Russia out the first time there was a show of trouble inside the Soviet Union? A Major Issue "The Democrats are scared to death of the Soviet wheat deal issue and I say we should continue to make an issue of it," Dole concluded. We hope to elect 40 new Republican members of the House in November so that we can investigate Bobby Baker, Billio Sol Eslcs and try to restore morality in government," Dole said. Rep. Anderson hammered at the "conservative image" of| L>'ndon Johnson arguing that Johnson has not repudiated a single program of his predecessor and has added some of his own.

WILLIAM T. HARHEU Incumbent saving to the American taxpayer." Anderson chided the president as "Light Bulb Johnson" and said that "it is time to turn the lighU on in the White House and to bum them brightly if any economy is to be developed in government." Foreign Policy Dabatt Anderson took Johnson to task for saying that "we shouldn't debate foreign policy." "W i t fain recent weeks six prominent Democrats have openly chal lenged U. S. foreign policy," Anderson noted. "I agree with Sen. Fulbright that it is time to expose the myths and face up to the new realities." "Johnson telis us that all is well, but in San Francisco before the Commonwealth Club, Ambassador Adlai Stevenson says that the Western Alliance is in grave disorder because it is no longer held together by the outward thrust of Stalinism," Anderson said. "Stevenson is basing his con elusion on the erroneous thought that there has been a change in Communism. We are told we don't need any new and shining policies, but the same day that we are told that an American helicopter is shot down in Viet Nam. The American people are not going to stand for this," Anderson de clared. Prayer Bill Pigeonholed The Illinois Congressman blasted the Democrats in Congress who have pigeonholed his bill for a constitutional amendment to permit prayer and Bible reading in the public schools. For two years they have re fused to act. The committee is 23-12 Democratic and the chairman could care less about the biU. Now they are talking about holding hearings, but only talking." In a question and answer period the two Congressmen gave these answers: Question: Whose side is Sen. Kuchel on? Answer: "We are not going to take issue with any Republican. We are trying to elect more Republicans." QuesUon: Is the Bobby Baker case a dead issue? Answer: "Lot of questions in this and the Billie Sol Estes case have not been answered. Either Reynolds or Jenldns is lying in testimony about a life insurance policy on the life of Lyndon Johnson. We can't get the answers in a 2-1 Democratic controlled Senate. Maybe the House can get the answers if the public keeps demanding them." Question: How can we get rid of the Berlin Wall? Answer: "It would have been infinitely easier if we had stopped the Russians when they started building the wall in 1961. We know that the VOPOS (Communist police) had orders to pull back if the Amer icans made a move to stop the wall. It was an open violation of the agreement on Berlin. It would have been easier if the administration then in power bad shown the resolution they had talked so much about in the campaign of 1960. To get rid of the Berlin Wall we should demand concession of the Russians whenever we enter into a deal with them. Our answer should be: Tear down the Wall, offer free elections and free determination to West- em Europe. "Why it is," the congressmen asked "that the Captive Nations resolution of the Eisenhower Administration is silenced? In this resolution the United States said that some day we hope to see the captive nations free. Today the Johnson administration says "don't talk about it, you will irritate Khrushchev. Don't talk of the day when freedom will come to those peoples." Question: Is the Civil Rights bill 90 per cent a power grab and 10 per cent civil rights? How did you vote, sir? Answer: Both congressmen voted for the bill which passed the House 290-130 with 34 Republicans voting no and 98 Democrats no. The 90 per cent, 10 per cent, is a poor and inaccur ate description of the bill. Both agreed that it is not a perfect bill. They pointed out that it is basically compatible with the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the constitution. Anderson commented on t h e two most controversial points: I. Public accommodations. 2. Fair Employment Practices. He said that in previous state ser\'ice he had helped enforce a public accommodations law in Illinois. "The bill passed by the House does not take away prop erty rights. I contend that hu man rights and personal rights take precedence over property rights. The bill also protects the rights of local governments and gives them time to act before federal enforcement can be brought to bear." Introduced at the meeting were: Congressional candidates, Faith DuPre, Jack Allen, Jerry Pettis, and Dennis Wardle's son who was representing him. County Supervisor S. Wesley Break, and Mrs. Robert Stockwell, executive secretary of the central committee. Construction of 50 new homes authorized Constraction of 50 new homes near Sunset drive and Via Vis-^ ta drive was authorized this week by the city Building department. The $1,335,000 subdivision will be developed by Best Built Enterprises of Ontario. All of| the homes will have eight rooms and will be of frame and stucco construction. Best Built Enterprises started work on 38 homes at Lincoln street and Colton avenue 1 a • t month. Other permits issued this week were as follows: Residence, 1018 Church street, owner, John L. Persenaire, builder Guaranteed Homes .of San Bernardino, frame - stucco construction, permit value 58,300. Swimming pool, 338 Fountain, owner Dale B. Eckrote, builder Barton Prestige Pools, 16 by 36 feet, permit value $2,700. Swimming pool, 1322 Center Crest, Dr. Norman Howard builder Barton Prestige Pools 17 by 45 feet, permit value $2, 800. Redlands Daily faas SalBrdiy,Apr.i W44 -5 Victor Gruen Plan Proper distribution of traffic important (Editor's Note: This Is the last of three articles on revitalizing the Downtown Redlands commercial district as outlined by Victor Gruen Associates during a 701 Study progress report Tuesday. Today's article concerns the traKie problem.) Proper distribution of automobile and pedestrian traffic is a principal objective of Victor Gruen Associates' ambitious plan to energize Downtown Redlands. E.xisting streets are inefficl lent and subject to congestion. Most of them are relatively short and have no continuity. That was the appraisal by traffic engineer Harold Marks of Uie Victor Gruen staff. Orange street is such a sticky problem that the professional planners frankly admit there's nothing to do but 'to "leave it alone." Their best plans designate Orange as a through street spanning the "core" area. "It's unusual to have a major street cutting through the downtown, but we could find no economically feasible way to reroute the traffic that uses it," Marks slated. The traffic engineer noted that Orange street carries 40 per cent of the north-south traffic moving in the study area—| Texas street on the west and Ninth street on the east. About Oatlji WILLIAM G.

Had it been possible, the Vic tor Gruen plan would recommend the closmg of Orange be tween Redlands boulevard and Vine street. Redlands Planning Commis sioner John Runkel disagrees with the concept of continuing Orange as a "through" street. He maintains that it will ere ate a serious hazard for pedes traiiis when State street is con verted to a mall (a proposal explained in the first article of this scries). Victor Gruen answers this argument with a plan for tun neUng under Orange street, thereby separating the cars from the pedestrians. In addition, the tentative pro gram is directed at relieving the amount of traffic on Orange by encouraging motorists to use Eureka street and Sixth street. Boy injured in car-train collision \lctor A. Dinkle, 3, of 630 Clark street, suffered minor injuries last night when the car in which he was a passenger collided with a freight train on San Bemardino avenue near Tennessee street, the California Highway Patrol reported. Driver of the car, Harl 0. Coins, 25275 Davidson street, San Bemardino. was eastbound on San Bemardino avenue about 7:30 p.m. and apparently failed to see a westbound Pacific Electric freight ' train. Coins vehicle stmck the side of the last car on the train, the CHP said. The youngster received a lacerated lip and was taken to Loma Linda hospitaL Coins' car sustnined extensive damage, the CHP reported. There are two major suggcs tions toward that end: 1—Create a continuous freeway access route between Eureka and Sixth by extending Pearl street eastward from Or ange street to Sixth street. 2^ReaIign Vine street into Eureka street south of Brookside avenue (near the Post Of fice). The second proposal is part of an ultimate plan to make Vine street the major east-west street on the southern perimeter of the commercial district. Citrus avenue would be phased out and converted to parking from Eureka to Ninth street. Redlands boulevard would re main the major cast-west street on the northem perimeter. Except for landscaping, there are no plans to change Redlands boulevard. The secondary streets between Citms and Redlands boulevard from Eureka east to Ninth would be eliminated. They are envisioned as pedes- train approaches to the mall from the parking created on atrus. Persons who have viewed the 'grand design" outlined by Victor Gmen may disagree with its particulars, but most are agreed the general concept is a realistic approach. . . something that is possible.

Mrs. Postle heads 7964 Redlands Cancer drive Stocic market down witli post holiday blues By C. J. PARNOW United Press International NEW YORK (UPD-The stock market came down with a case of the post-holiday blues early this week but recovered sufficiently to score two sets of new highs before the final session. Prices churned narrowly mixed Monday and the only bright spots in the list were tobacco and airline shares. The picture turned darker Tuesday and prices dropped some. A late rally on Wednesday set the stage for an even better advance on Thursday when prices rose sharply to record highs in both Dow-Jones industrial and rail averages and Standard & Poor's 500 stock index. Trading on Thursday hit 6,840,008 shares—the heaviest volume since last Nov. 26, the first trading day after the assassination of President Ken nedy. Dow-Jones Industrial average climbed 7.08 to a new record high of 822.99 while rails ad vanced 3 .30 to 195.46, also a new record high'. Standard & Poor's 500 stock index also scored a new high of 79.94 on a gain of 0.75. Trading totaled 29.689,310 shares compared with the 21,334,064 shares in the prior holiday week and 23,611,104 shares in the same week last year. Of the 1,511 issues traded, 803 advanced, 314 to new 1964 highs while 557 declined, 120 to new lows. Studebaker topped the market in activity, rising IVS to 8% on turnover of. 575,300 shares. The activity in the issue stem med from a statement by the company president in which, he said first quarter earnings would approximate $1 million compared with a net loss of $6.4 million a year earlier. Tobacco shares continued to improve on reports of rising cigarette sales. Philip Morris gained' 5?i, American Tobacco and Lorillard 3V^ and Liggett & Myers 3%. Western Air Lines shot up 8 points, Braniff 2Va, Nafional 4Vi and Trans World 2%. Delta backtracked 3^8. Coca - Co\i jumped 6 and Royal Crown Cola advanced 5. Jlrs. Franklin Postle was today named to head the residential section of the 1964 Cancer Cmsade in the Redlands district, according to W. Eugene Malone, general campaign chairman. Volunteers selected for each school district will distribute packets in the various neighborhoods, beginning on Monday, April 13. Already appointed as • school district • captains are Mrs. E. Raymond Wilson, Franklin; Mrs. E. G. Gleitsman, Kingsbury; Mrs. William Barlow, McKinley. Mrs. L. G. Hahn, Lugonia; Mrs. William McCormick, Smiley; Mrs. Harold McMillen, Kimberly east; Mrs. Virgil Luke, Kimberly central; Mrs. Swen Larson, Kimberly west; Mrs. Warren Hooper, Crafton and Mrs. Oddie Martinez, Lin- coto. Mrs. PosUe said the Redlands residential campaign will again, be conducted in the unique neigbbor-to-seighbor manner which has been so successful in past years. That is, the volunteer worker starts the packet and it is passed from neighbor-to-neighbor with each taking out the educational material and making a contribution if desired. Chairman Malone emphasized that Redlands is now a' full-fledged unit of the County Cancer Society, holding regular meetmgs the fourth Friday of each month. TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or appliances' will find a ready market through Classified Ads, > Ruth Pico tells pupils of eariy Calif, history A part of California history came to life for Kingsbury School 4th grade students of Miss Marian Wakefield and .Mrs. Carol Ross, when Mrs. James Arnold, parent of a 4th grader, contacted a decendant of early Califomians and invited her to visit the school this week. Miss Ruth Pico, now residing in Riverside, is a niece of the last Mexican governor of Call fomia, Pio Pico. Her great grandfather was Don Jose Estudillo, who was given a land grant of 32,000 acres in the San Jacinto 'Valley where she lived on Casa Loma Rancho until it was sold in 1961. The first Spanish land ^ants were given to the Missions but were later given to individuals for services rend ered or to help settle New Cal ifomia. Miss Pico's grandfather owned part of the largest rancho in the State, Rancho Santa Margarita, where Camp Pendleton is located today. However, he gave part of his property to the Sobobo Indians for use as a reservation. Miss Pico told the children many interesting stories about the lives and events of her ancestors. She also brought valuable family heirlooms with her to show the classes. A highlight of the coliecUon of shawls, parasols, mantillas and pic tures, was a golden comb decorated with tiny, gold nuggets. >lnnouneement of Funerof Services HAROLD H.
