4 - WaL. tpril a IW Kedlamls Daily faat $77,367 for Prospect Custody of Park fund transferred to council Custody of some $77,367 for the purchase of Prospect Park was- transferred to the Ci^ Council last night, bnt acquisition of the property remained a distant hope. Mayor Waldo Burroughs told members of the Prospect Park Citizens Committee that the city would hold the public contributions "for a reasonable length of time" until other plans are presented for the park's eventual purchase. Committee chairman Lloyd Yount informed the Council that in addition to the $T?,367 already donated, the committee has received a commitment for another 560,000 in the event the city purchases Prospect Park. In the meantine, the citizens group asked that the Council accept the $77,367 gift and de posit the funds into a city Trust Account to be "held and used only and solely for the purhcase of Prospect Park. Transfer of the public contributions to the city was made necessary by the expuration of a special holding escrow estab lished at the downtonn branch of the Bank of America. The committee is still exploring ways of obtaining the ad- diUcmal money needed to buy the 40-acre parkland at Cajon street and Highland avenue without the use of city tax money. Yount assured the Council: "We anticipate being able to present to the Council in the near future specific recomenda- tions on how Prospect Park can be purchased in line with the Council's annnounced policy that no city tax money will be used." Tax sources were cut off by virtue of the October, 1963, de feat of a $575,000 bond election to acquire the paik. Victor/ dinner planned by Community Chest The Redlands Community] Chest is hopeful of conducting an intense vigorous but brief campaign next fall, topped with a "Victory Dinner" by mid-No vember. This was reported to, and approved by, the Chest Board of Directors at their regular meet-; ing this week. A special feature of the Victory dinner will be a series of awards wliich would be developed by a new awards commiteee, according to plans of the campaign cabinet. Chest leaders have felt for the past several years that it has been a mistake to hold off the final Chest .campaign report until the annual meeting in January. The mid-Novemberj Mctory dinner is expected to be the answer to a shorter campaign period. It was also reported that plans are now firm for the campaign Idckoff dinner to be held on September 28, the last Monday of the month. In other reports to the Board: The budget committee an nounced it will meet at 4 p.m June 8 to consider agency bud get estimates for next year so that a recommendatioQ can be made to the board as to the possible campaign goal. The budget committee also assigned its members to become well acquainted with spe cific agencies as follows: Mts. R. K. Scholton, Girl Scouts; Bert P. Marcum, Day Nursery; Mrs. Dushane Hynson, Family Service association; Joseph W. Enarson, Salvation Army; Ben Wilson, YMCA; Mrs. E. R. WQ- son, YWCA; L. R. Handley. Boy Scouts; Kenneth M.

In another matter relating to finances, the Chest board authorized that Debber Estate funds (less than $5,000) be deposited with the California Com munity Foundation. This is a non-profit corporation for which the Security First National Bank is the trustee. The money is deposited with the Fund for interest purposes and also to help create a ve hide through which other Red- landers could leave designated funds to the Redlands Community Chest. Redlands agencies have already received allocations from the Foundation. Boys Scouts received $350 for an audio-visual set; the YMCA has received funds three different times for $548, $475 and $305. The YWCA has also received considerable help from this Foundation. The $1500 for sand-j blasting and pamting the exterior in 1962 came from this source. Other allocations to the YW have included $500 for new chairs, $800 for new tables, $482 for painting the main hall and $675 for new lighting. The money placed with the Foundation by the Chest is held in Trust for the Redlands Chest and can be retrieved at will.
