CITRUS OUTLOOK By W. A. Brunton Mexico. At the outset of World War ir, and shortly before his assassination, she broke with him because of her fundamentally different appraisal of the nature of the Russian slate. Far from agreeing with Trotsky's stand that Russia was a workers' state which had to be defended, she asserted that Russia, with its purges, slave labor camps, and Hitler-Stalin pact, was the greatest totalitarian bararism in the modem industrial world. She later designated the Russian regime a state-capitalist tyranny, and developed this analysis in rigorous systematic study of the Russian economy, undertaken in 1940, from original sources. Miss Punayevskaya's lecture will be held in Room 1000 of the UCR Social Sciences Building at 8:15 pim. Admission is free and the general public is cordially invited to attend.

Almost without exception every car of Navels arriving in the markets is showing evidence of overmaturity. Skin breakdown, pitting and some decay are re ported on the big percentage of arrivals. Where the off condition is not too serious delivery can be effected, but in many cases allowances must be made or cars are rejected outright and usually are diverted to an auction market As a result the terminal markets have been oversup- pUed and prices have drift' ed progressively lower. Fruit arriving in sound condition and with a minimum of trouble continues to sell well and the pre mium sizes are commanding good prices, but these are the exception rather than the rule. All of the smaller markets and many retail outlets in the larger markets have discontin' ued handling Navels. In switch' ing to Valencias volume movement has declined and most handlers report considerable consumer resistance because the fruit does not eat well. This is to be expected after the pub­ lic had become accustomed to the outstanding eating quality of California Navels this year. The heaviest demand for new crop Valencias is for the medium and smaller sizes. Larger sizes are running into stiff com petition from Florida Valencias which are running large and are at the peak of flavor and maturity. At the rate Florida Valen­ cias are movmg to the canneries and also being shipped in fresh fruit channel competition from that source should lessen as the season advances. In the meantime, however, shipment of Southern California Valencias will be gaining momentum and in this area there is no shortage of small sizes. For next week twenty-two shippers in Southern CaUfomia made application for Early Maturity allotments totalling 143 carloads. With seventy per cent of the crop in the south running sizes 163s and smaller it would appear the demand for small sizes will be taken cars of in short order. In Central California Valencia sizes are heavier to the medium bracket with a fair percentage of large sizes. Arizona Valencias are turning out larger than either of | the California districts. Next week Central California shippers will operate under a prorate of 600 carloads and Arizona 225, so buyers will be able to secure almost any size they require. Democrotic club to meet Monday Two candidates and a president of the district club organization will be special guests at the regular meeting of the Redlands Democratic club next Monday, April 27, 8 p.m. at the Security First National bank community room, 7th and State.

Planners delay action on variance request SAN BERNARDINO (CNS)-I Action on a variance sought to allow a residence on a substandard lot in the Bryn Mawr area Thursday was put off until May 21 by the County Planning Commission. The delay was voted in the hope some development plan could be worked out so the whole 80-acre block in which the property is located will not also be divided into substandard lots. The applicant was R. L. Doe ring. His wife told the com mission that her father had left the property involved, which totals six acres at the southeast comer of Beaumont avenue and Nevada sfreet iviU> the understanding she and her brother were to have a part to build homes. The area is zoned for agri-l cultural use, with 10 acres required for a building. The Doering application was for a variance to allow a little less than an acre to be cut out of the six-acre parcel on which her mother now has a home. Mrs.] Doering said her brother has already taken the parcel needed for his residence. Neil Pfulb, county planning director, declared that the six- acre parcel involved was large enough to subdivide into the normal residential lots of 7,200 square feet if the zoning were changed. The hearing was con tinued to allow the applicants time to consider an overall development plan for the property.

Mere Greek ffien Greece Editor Facts: I would like to comment regarding the Cyprus crisis, in connection to your editorial cf| April 22. It Should be noted that thej great number of coniiuerors ,of Cyprus, which you have listed in your article, came and left; but the Greeks "somehow,' television commentator conceded, "have always been there." The "somehow" is simply that the Greeks, mainly from Mycaenae, settled in Cyprus in the fourteenth century B.C.; and also in the. eleventh century B.C., after flie Troian War. The remarkable thing is that despite continuous subjugation since 709 B.C., when Sargon nj of the Assyrians conquered the island, the Greek character has been conserved to such degree as far as fradition, culture, re- IligJoD, and language are con-| cemed, to provoke the amazement of all of those who have had the opportunity to be exposed to it and study it lie Qrpript dialect spoken to-| day is onfr of the closest to Homeric Greek. The Greek na ture of Cyprus is summed up in the words of the French au thor M. Antoine Charmay, who said that "La Chypre est plus Greque que la Grece meme" (Cyprus is more Greek than Greece itself.) The English author Lawrence Durrell in his book "Bitter Lemons" says: "I could not help reflecting wryly that had we been honest enough to admit the Greek nature of Cyprus at the beginning, it might never] have been necessary to abandon the island or to fight for it." If an of those who are in- strumeotal in settling the pres ent crisis in Cyprus admitted its Greek nature, Cyprus, de spite the weight of centuries could know peace quickly and easily.

HUL County Superin tendent of Schools, has an nounced the first phase of comprehensive survey aimed at studying existing programs in schools in the county in light of occupational needs and also projected reqmrements.
