4 - Wtt, April H, m RedlandsDaifyratts Red lands citizens fo vote on rubbish collection Redlands voters •mil berubish to accumulate in theiri called upon Tuesday to render their decision on the kind of rubbish collection program they vish made availale to them. The issue is brought to the voters by an initiative measure repealing the existing collection program and replacing it with an "optional" program. What changes would the pro- proposed initiative ordinance bring? Generally, there would be at least five immediate changes in city policy relating to the collection of rubish. These changes are: 1—Citizens would no longer] be required to subscribe to the city's. rubbish service. They, instead, could use optional means of disposing of garbage and rubbish. The "compulsory" nature of the city's program has been the principal issue in the rubbish collection controversy. Provisions of the initiative ordinance stipulate that the city will provide collection and disposal service only "for those residents and commercial establishments that desire this service." The initiative ordinance con tinues the prohibition against residents allowing garbage and yards. 2—Residents would be per-| mitted to bury garbage and rubish on their property, pro vided it is done in a sanitary manner. 3—Commercial rubbish haul ers would be allowed to compete with the city Disposal department Although the ordin-' ance itself is vague on this point, the intent is clearly stated in the official argument prepared by the Voters Committee Agamst Compulsory Rubbish Collection and mailed to voters along with the sample baUot The argument slates: "A vote for the initiative measure would make entry of the priv-! ate entrepreneur into this field (rubbish collection) possible." 4~Hiring of an expert sanitary inspector would be neces-i sary. Enforcement provisions of the initiative ordinance states | that "sanitary inspections will be made only by the City Health Officer or a member of his staff who is a graduate Doctor of Me^cme or a graduate Sanitary Engineer." Currently, the city contracts with the county Health depart-l ment for all health services. Most county health officers would not meet the requirements setfortb in the initiative measure. 5—a new commercial rate structure would be established. Businesses would be charged at the residential rate (now $2J0 a month), but on a volume basis. For example, a business which had a rubbish volume five times greater than the average household vohime would pay five times the $2.10 rate. Voters should also understand that iniaUve ordinances cannot be changed by City Council action. Authority to regulate the method of rubbish and garbage disposal is now vested in Uie City Council. The initiative proposes to strip the Council of this authority and to place it with the electorate, alone. Since it would be created by direct action of the voters,-the miative measure could not be altered or modified except by another general election. As submitted to the voters on Tuesday's ballot, a "Yes' vote would be to adopt the initiative rubbish ordinance. A No" vote would be to defeat the initiative measure. Assemblyman STEW HINCKLEY .... Says Creating committee pacifies traffic group Creation of yet another State Street Traffic Study group appears to have momentarily pacified leaders of the Committee for Sensible Downtown Traffic. The new study was authorized by the City Council last night in the face of a threatened initia tive campaign to put the State Street question before city voters. Police Chief Stanley R. Bowen was named chairman of a "representative" committee to explore possible alternatives in the traffic patterns on State street through the downtown area. He was directed to select his committee from the Traffic Commission, the Parking Place Commission, the Chamber of Commerce, the DowTitown Redlands Association and the Com mittee for Sensible Downtown TraflSc. In organizmg the study, the Council followed the same course of action it took in February, 1963, when the State Street traffic issue flared anew. At that time the problem was referred to the Traffic Commis sion. That study produced a slate of seven alternate traffic plans — all of which ultimately were deemed unworkable. The four month study ended in April, 1963, when the Council decided to keep one-way traffic on State Street. Then as now, the request to restore State Street to normal two-way traffic flow comes from merchants and property owners on West State who maintain that the present one-way pattern is detrimental to their businesses. Frank Taylor, chairman of the Committee for Sensible Downtown Traffic, has made it clear that his group is prepared to circulate petitions to call special election. "The only way we can figure to get rid of it (one-way traf fic) is by a vote of the people," he asserted last night However, he agreed to take part in the new study. Councilman Waldo F. Burroughs proposed the creation of; study committee. "There are great number of people and property affected," be noted. The Council should not be the sole judge and jury of what is needed." He added. "Those directiy affected should go into this for the benefit of aU. When falr-mmded men get together, a sohition can be found." His suggestion gahied imme diate support from other coun cilmen, and on a motion by Councilman William Hartzell, the study was authorized.

In its summation to the Supervisors, the committee noted that all speed zones should be established only upon an engineering and traffic survey in accordance with the California Vehicle Code. After review of the com pleted speed zone survey, Uie committee finds that gufiScient warrants do not exist to recom mend the establishment of the requested speed zone.

Airports seek tax aid S.\N BERNARDINO (CNS)- A plea for tax relief for the Tri-City airport four miles west of Redlands and Upland's Cable airport was received sympaUietically Jlonday by the County Board of Supervisors. Supervisor Daniel D. Uikesell asked representatives of the airports to get together wiUi the county counsel and the county assessor to draft an amendment to the Stata Consti tution to allow assessments on private airports to be wiped out 'It behooves us to do aU we can," said Supervisor S. Wesley Break, "becaus* well be putting these people out of business." Supervisor Paul Young declared that Chino's city airport has an advantage over private airports, although there is com petition between them.

For this seems to bo the age of misunderstanding. So, to put things in perspective I would like to review the Sacramento situation. The regular budget session failed to produce a budget, and so for the third time in as many years the Governor has had to call a special budget session. This one opened at high noon Monday, March 30th. ConcurreuUy viHi Uio new budget session, the Legislature will consider measures in the first extraordinary session — some forty-odd items. From the temper of the times it would be my guess that we will be in Sacramento for about another month. By that time a good many of the politicos wiU be anxious to get home for their upcoming election campaigns, As of this writing it appears that the school bond proposals. The Redlands YMCA National Athletic Achievement Contest came to an end this week with John SmiUi again capturing first place with a total number of 487 points out of a possible 500. Second place with a total of 478 points went to Tom Fitch with Dean Tharaldson coming in third wiUi 470 points. The Athletic Achievement Contest is National YMCA event conducted annually through the YMCA's of Uie United States Redlands YMCA has placed first among California YMC.'V's for the past four years. Events in the contest were: L A Basketball Uirow (number of baskets made in 1 minute). Troops move into Norton for Desert Strike" together with the state lottery measure and the initiative to change the constihjtion via re-| peal of he Rumford Act, will all be placed on the November ballot In his budget message in February, the Governor recommended the school construction bonds be placed on the June baUot. The Governor, who holds Uie whip hand and the veto power over all bills, has again changed his mind and announced that under no circumstances vrill he allow the school building bonds to be submitted in June. All hands admit that should the school building bonds be defeated in November, a serious crisis would result This second guessing the outcome of elec tions has involved public educa tion in a "political mishmash' that is most regretable. X have been one who thinks that before wc approve the greatest spending program in any state's history, an adequate school finance bill should be passed. Basically this is the principal reason why the Governor's first budget has been rejected. This will be the mam bone of contention in the weeks ahead. What do you think? Your opinions and suggestions are invited. Your letters should be addressed to me at the State Capi tol, Sacramento.

MacArthur, the memorandum said, accused the British of perfidy. The general charged that all of his correspondence with Wastiington had been shown the British by the State Department and within 48 hours was in the hands of the Chinese Reds. According to the story, the correspondence reached the Chinese either through India or the Soviet Embassy in London. A spokesman here said the British Embassy knew of no foundation for the report "We had commonwealth forces in Korea at the time so obviously we had no interest whatever in leaking American plans to the Chinese," he com- 2.

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (UPI) —Former President Harry S. Truman declined to comment on dispatches published today in which the late Gen. Douglas JIacArthur was quoted as saying in 1954 that he was betrayed in Korea by the British, abetted by "fools" in Washington. Truman's office said the former president would have no comment about the late general or statements attributed to him, and would "stand on the statement he issued at the time of General MacArthur's death." In that statement, Truman said MacArthur would go down in history as one of the nation's military heroes. I "irS YOUR MOVE MAY WE BE OF SERVICE? TRI.CITY 31 VAN & STORAGE CORP. w.
