o - thurs., April 16, 1964 Redlands Daily facts 22 Redlands young people work on Baptist project Transforming a neglected Victorian mansion into a sparkling hall worthy of its name "Hospitality House" was tiie work project of 22 young people oi First Baptist church of Redlands on their visit to San Francisco last week. Enthusiastic scrubbing, scraping, and scouring preceded a dazzling display of previously undiscovered talents of the group for spreading quantities of paint with rollers and brushes on very tall walls and ceilings, and shining ancient doors and stair rails to brand-, new with varnish and poUsh. With their leaders, Bevs. Dave Silke and Bob Moore, senior high students studied the inner-city of San Francisco in conjunction with their annual work project. Visiting Glide Memorial Methodist church in the downtown "tenderloin" district of the city, they heard Rev. John Jloore explain some of the problems of a church in such a location. Usmg funds of the G i I d e Foundation, surveys have been made of the various young- adult sub-groups living within the city, including large groups of homo-sexuals, unwed mothers, single working gurls, etc. Constructive recreational facilities for these people have been provided through the estabUsh- ment of coffee houses and creative classes. Minority racial groups in ghetto areas of the City were also visited and included in the study. Students learned from leaders of the Youth for Service movement of the progress made in providmg work proj- Redlands schools will be opening bids galore in a few weeks for a number of miscellaneous projects.

I It provides planned recrea- itional activities in the only I gymnasium in t h e area, and [tutoring services to help those m scholastic difficulties.

The Unexpectec Friday! FINDING THE ANSWER - Mrs. Isabelle Smith, reference librarian, searches for an answer to one of the hundreds of unusual questions asked of her department at A. K. Smiley Pubhe How do you raise mudsuckers? Unusual questions get answers from Library By RUTH SNOW O'ROURKE How do you raise mudsuckers for bait? What's the difference between fish eyes and cow eyes? Neither of the questions appeared on a quiz program. They are just a smidgen of those asked of the librarians at A. K. Smiley Public Library where Redlanders young and old go for "answers" as well as divertissement. The ways of libraries have changed according to Edith Taylor's observations, and she should know since she's head librarian. "The pathetic old men that used to come into libraries early in the morning and spend the day reading newspapers and magazmes are a thing of the past Most elderly men no tonger feel pathetic and they're over in the park playing roque orshuffleboard. They're healthy, active, and enjoying themselves." As for old ladies . . . well who ever hears of an old lady anymore? Those spry creatures, knocking eighty, who come and go through the doors of a library are probably looking for "Do It Yourself" books on plumbmg repairs or raismg mushrooms. The habits of the young have changed too. Not long ago, the book stacks at Smiley Library screened plenty of hanky-panky. That's over. The fact that a "peace officer" is on duty from seven to nine in the evenmg may have something to do with it, but the rash of misbehavior that badgered the library a few months ago has stopped.

"One new officer at Norton said he had never been stationed where there was such a fine library. He looked over oiu: new books and just couldn't believe his eyes." Daytime attendance at the library zooms into impressive numbers . . . between 16,000 and 18,000 people patronize the library in the month of March. Eventide brings a swarm of teen-agers into the reading rooms. They come to get reference material and to study and maybe a little bit because working at the library is "in" Miss Taylor conjectures another, reason. "There's just too much togetherness' these days. Children can't find a place to study at home . . . there's the T.V. go ing and everyone's in the family room and there just isn't any privacy. Next year the li brary at the High School may be open evenings and if it is, the pressure on the Public Library will be relaxed." Reading tastes have changed too. Science books are m greatest demand by the boys. Horse books are most popular with small girls. Books OD dogs are read more than books on cats. An "astronaut Reading Club" drew 1121 "astronauts" from the youngest set and they read 27,374 books on their favorite subject The Children's Room at the Library was filled with space capsules, log books and outer space maps to satisfy the imagination of the young hopefuls of our Space Age. Redlands borrows lots of library books on Shorthand and Languages. This is a non-fiction reading town. Travel books and biographies supersede' fiction. Time was when there were 3 number of books on bridge at the library. No more. . Miss Taylor explained that [certain types of books have a habit of going out but never coming back. Sports and bridge books were the most frequently [noted absent members. "Now we don't buy bridge books any more. A woman phoned one day to ask why we didn't. 'We explained it was because people walk out with them. Her reply was, 'My goodness ... I didn't know you could do that!"
