Candidates face city's major requirements State street traffic, the need for new industry and creation of a local animal shelter emerged as the prominent issues among City Council can- didtaes during a grueling Qty Forum staged by the Redlands Junior Chamber of Commerce last night Differences of opinion among the seven council aspirants in Tuesday's election crystallized during the question-answer por-| tion of the three-hour forum at Grace Mullen Auditorium. An estimated 50 to 60 voters attended the public forum to compare the candidates-and to ask questions. Each of the candidates — William Hartzell, Jack Cummings, John Foy, Carl Giese, Larry Nowak, Charles De- Mirjyn and Louis Kalman — set forth their views in brief statements before the grueUng lV4-hour questioning period be gan. In his talk, Cummings appeared to urge the election ofj Hartzell, the incumbent, to one offithe candidates agreed. Each of the two Council positions be- mg contested. "I am campaign ing for the seat vacated by Mayor Parker," the young Uni' versity administrator declared, "I don't want to displace anyone now on the Council." Foy also conceded one of the two seats to Hartzell. Foy observed that incumbent candidates have always enjoyed a 50 per cent better chance for, election. "There is really only one seat open," he declared. Broaden Tax Base Broadening the city's tax base by attiracting new light industry to Redlands appeared to be the only issue on which all stated they would endeavor to lighten the property tax load by encouraging'industrial ex pansion. Whethei*- State street should be returned to two-way traffic was a recurring issue throughout the Forum. Most candidates had an opportunity to express their wews. Foy asserts that as far as be was concerned State street was the only issue. "Half the town is bang blighted by the pr^ent one-way pattern. 1 will do everything I can to help the Committee for Sensible Downtown Traffic make State a two-way street, he said. Ridiculous Situation DeMirjyn concurred, calling the present one-way traffic a ridiculous situation." Cummings stated that he believed the Council's action this week in creating another studyi committee was appropriate. Nowak said the problem should b? solved by the merchants themselves. Creation of a city-operated animal shelter was proposed by three of the candidates. The is sue developed as an apparent outgrowth of the city dog leash law controversy. City operations of its own dog pound was urged by Foy, Kalman, and Giese. All three were critical of the city's current practice of transporting animals to the San Bernardino shelter, which they described as unsanitary. Hartzell Disagree* In rebuttal, Hartzell related that the present San Bernardino shelter is being replaced witii a modem $70,000 facility. He said Police Chief Stanley R. Bowen has inspected the shel- ternow in use and is satisfied with its condition. "The dty pays $1,000 a year for use of the San Bernardino shelter seven days a week. This is one of the areas in which the Council believes joint-use ofj facilities is more economical than an individual effort," Hartzell sUted. Kalman, whose nomination is endorsed by the Voters Committee Against Compulsory Rubbish CoUection, was the target for questions rdating to the rubbish disposal controversy. Conflicting Statement* At least' two of his responses Iseemed in conflict with the initiative rubbish ordinance placed on Tuesday's ballot. by the Voters Committee. When asked about the provi sJons of the initiative measure which would permit the burying of garbage, Kalman stated: "I dont know why anybody should bury garbage. It 's not sanitary. I 've never heard of| anybody making a practice of burying garbage in thehr backyard." On a question relating to in creased collection rates for businesses, Kalman answered: "What ever the rates are now, that's where they should stay. To my knowledge, the ordinance makes no recommenda tion to raise the rates." Kalman urged the audience to vote "Yes" on the initiative measure, and asserted that the Voters Committee was not a "special group," and that it represented a cross-section of, the community. N.Y.

No hammer, sickle, just initials DENVER (UPI)-The tiny in signia on the new Kennedy half- dollar might look like Russia's hammer and sickle, but mmt officials are quick to point out it isn't Mrs. Fern T. Miller, superintendent of the Denver Mint, said the insignia actually was made up of the initials of Gilroy Roberts, the mint's chief sculptor. The insignia appears at the base of the neck of the profile of President Kennedy and just above the word "We" in the Motto "In God We Trust" Roberts, who desired the profile, engraved bis initial "G" over Uie "R."

Clash over water in committee WASHINGTON (UPI)- Art zona and California clashed on an old battlefield today in their unceasing batUe over how the waters of the Cotorado River should be divided. Officials of the two water- short states collided before the Senate Irrigation subcommittee in renewed hearings on the long delayed Central Arizona Project (CAP). As before. Interior Secretary Stewart L. Udall was caught in the middle in the battle over the $1 billion Arizona project The Arizonans demanded that the CAP be given priority even if made a part of Udall's ambitious five-state Pacific Southwest water plan. They backed legislation by Sens. Carl Hayden (D-Ariz.,) and Barry Goldwater, (R-Ariz.,) calling for early con-] stniction of the Arizona project California Sen. Iliomas H.'Kuchel, senior Republican on the Interior (^mmittee, called for amendment of the CAP legislation to prevent any possibility the project might cut into Cali- fomia's claim to a minimum of| ,.4 million acre-feet of Colorado River water. Reports progress on City 's park projects Fun loving Redlanders can look, forward to the use of a new park and a refurbished plunge this summer. Public use of the Texonia neighborhood park at Texas and Lugonia streets is expected by mid-summer,. Park Superintendent Charles Dawson related. Except for planting' the lawn, Texonia Park is virtually completed. The lawn will be seeded this month and should be estab- Ushed well enough for public use within three months, Dawson said. Development of the park has been a Redlands Evening Kiwanis Club project Additional playground equipment and a barbeque pit have yet to be installed. Restroom facilities are finished, the sprinkler system has been installed and trees have been planted. Imprevammts Dawson also announced that major improvements at Sylvan Plunge have been completed This mdudes the renovation of both boys' and girls' dressing rooms, installation of new restroom facilities and drains and a coating of paint inside and out The improvements, costing about $6,000, should make the pitmge an adequate facility for the next 10 years, according to Dawson. Later this summer, Dawson expects the heavy use of Syl van Plunge to be relieved by completion of the two pools at Redlands High School Baseball City Park department crews have also been busy improving the infield areas of the baseball diamonds at the Commua ity Field on Church sti-eet Dawson is doubtful that Fish Pond Park in Reservoir Canyon above Highland avenue can be opened to the public this summer. Development of the park is a Rotary Club project Fish Ponds The two fish ponds have been completed and arc now filled. Final grading of the park property to create additional flat areas for picnic spots has been completed. Restroom facilities are now under construction. But installation of the sprinkler system has delayed the park project. Dawson said it is possible to open the park before the sprinlders are put in and the lawn planted, but he would prefer to get the lawn esUblished first Additional property acquired in a land trade with the Carmelite Fathers has been cleared and graded. Palm trees removed from oUier areas in Redlands have been transplanted to the park. For reasons of safety, the entire perimeter of Uie park has been fenced. Sections of the fence will be relocated when adjacent land now part of the city pumping plant is added to the park. Several large shade trees will become part of the park when this land is added, Dawson noted.
