RBdlands Daily Facts 4-Satun!ay, Apr. 25. 1964 Youths compete in race testing safety, economy With the flash of the green flag, more than 50 Redlands and Yucaipa high school students embarked upon an unusual race this morning. It was a race against time, to be sure, but it was also a race to see which driverj could squeeze the most dis tance out of each drop of gasoline without violating laws or safety rules. For this was the Safety-Economy Run sponsored again this year by the Kiwanis clubs of Redlands and Yucaipa: It was a different course this year and a grueling 146-mile one. It started from the comer of Brookside and Lakeside. Drivers went from there to Tennessee street, then to the freeway, and up to the Yucaipa tumoff. From there, it was through Yucaipa to Bryant, to Mill creek canyon and to Camp Angelus-Barton Flats to Big Bear. And it was down the back slope of Cushenbury grade to Lucerne Valley, then back to Highway 66 and the freeway to Washington street, Barton road and thence to the starting point. The youthful drivers, each ac companied by an adult observer from the Kiwanis club, were required to complete the 146-mile loop in not less than 3 hours, 15 minutes, and not more than 3 hours, 45 minutes. The first car was flagged away from the starting point at 7:50 a.m. A 15-minute planned break for the drivers was scheduled at the first highway junction in Lucerne valley where refreshments were prepared. Because there are a variety of cars entered in t h e race each .vear, the winner is determined on a ton-mile basis and trophies were to be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. In addition, there is a special trophy given for the driver scoring the best actual miles per gallon. The winners were to be announced and the trophies awarded at a special luncheon at Terrier hall this noon.

(Facts photo by Clifford J. Kenison) Hi%\or\c firsf U.S. coin fo be exhibited Sunday One of the most historical and controversial of the United States coins, the Half Disme of 1792, wiU be exhibited m the San Bernardino County Coin Show tomorrow in the Cafeteria building at the National Orange Show grounds. The show opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 8 p.m. tliere is no admission charge and free parking is available through the E street entrance. Food is also available since the cafeteria will be open. An auction of 200 lots will begin at 1 p.m. The Half Disme is five-eights of an inch wide and thin and was made as the first flve- cent piece. The term disme was for dimes and half disme for half dimes was used in the early years. . It is being exhibited by I Bryan Burke of San Bernardino a member of both the Redlands and San Bernardino Coin .clubs. He is a graduate of the I University of Redlands and is at present teaching American History in San Bernardino High School. It bears the portrait of Martha Washington and was made from house-hold silver ser^'ice provided by President George Washington from his home. Apparently about 2,000 were made but only about 200 have survived the hard usage [of the early days. Most of the specimens seen now have heavy wear. Mr. Burke's piece is termed a "very fine" example. Due to its minting before the mint was opened, the unortho^ dox origin of the silver, the unofficial design and the portrait of Mrs. Washington, the coin has long been a problem child of US collectors and author ities. Mr. Burke says that Congress authorized the half dismes in April of 1792 but the minting machinery didn't arrive from Europe until September and at that time the mint building wasn't built yet. President [Washington became impatient to see the big press work and also pointed out the fact that there was such a need for small change in Philadelphia and other cities. The press was set up in the Harper saw making shop at Cherry and Sixth street in Philadelphia. The design was haste- ly made on the die and the President brought in his sil- |verware to get started. The portrait was taken from early paintings of Martha. The legend partly abbreviated is 'Liberty Parent of Science and Industry". The date is 1792. On the reverse is a very crude portrait of a flying eagle and the lettering "United States of Amer- |ica. Half Disme". The President was apparently pleased with the new coinage and the next time he addressed Congress which was Nov. 6, 1792, he referred to I them saying "There has been a small beginning in the corn- age of half dismes. . . ." Large copper cents were the first regularly struck when the mint was opened the following year. The regular half dimes, which were considerably different from, the half dismes, were I not struck until 1794. r A fOX WIST COAST THBkTlf f7l • m CojM Html • n. wall HELD OVER — 2nd BIG WEEK Both Features Shown Once Only.

Best Actor Sidney PoiHer "Lilies Of The Field" Stocks end week with sharp drop NEW YORK (UPI) The stock market finished the week with its sharpest decline since the assassination of President KcU' nedy in November. Prices had retreated consider ably by late Friday and a burst of heavy selling in the final half hour of the session pushed them ever lower. Turnover became so heavy, the high-speed tickers lagged 5 minutes behind floor transactions. As WaU Street waited the week out for some news on the railroad work rules dispute, in dustrials worked lower but rails registered one gain after the other except in the final session. Most brokers termed the sharp declme as a "technical correction." However, most ex planations seemed to hinge on the market's reaction to the rail settlement. News of the accord came too late to be of any help in Wednesday's session but the market opened on the following day with a promising upturn in prices, particularly among the carrier issues. However, by late afternoon the advance ran out of steam and prices tumbled. Even the well positioned rail section was dragged back from its best level. Friday Break Prices opened mixed Friday and declined steadily until the big break came shortly after 3 P. M. Although the corporate background remains good, the economic situation has been slightly greyed by the fact that some of the economic indicators have not risen to their anticipated levels. The American Iron & Steel Institute reported a gain of 0.04 in steel production above the preceeding week. However in the week before that production had been unchanged and some forecasters took this as a sign that production was topping out. There has also been some warnings, both from the White House and economic circles of the dangers of inflation and the necessity of holding prices down. This was further emphasized by President Johnson's inuendo that auto makers should reduce their prices. In the market place itself, many experts feel prices, particularly in some of the recent high-flyers, bad risen too high too fast and were due for a setback. They also noted a rise in the number of odd-lot buyers. Many Wall Streeters believe that the arrival of the small buyer in the market signals the impending end of the bull market They base their feeling on the historic belief the public al ways gets in too late. Industrials Tumble Dow-Jones industrial average tumbled 12.44 from last week's record high to 814.89. Rails sUpped 0.89 to 196.18. Utihties eased 0.05 to 139.95. Standard and-Poor's 500 stock index sldd- ded 0.80 to 79.75. Texas Gulf Sulphur topped the market in activity, rising 4 to 4 on a turnover of 1,749,400 shares. INTO THE LINEUP — It took push-power to get entries in the high school Safety-Economy Run lined up and ready to go this morning. Once cars were filled with gasoline, they were pushed into line, then forward, car-by-cor, into starting posi- tion before the, engine was ever started again. All entries started from the corner of Brookside and Lakeside and fin- inshed there approximately 314 hours later.

Pomono firm seeks new /ocoffon for mix p\an\ The Pomona Ready Mix Company — accused by the City Council recently of conducting an illegal concrete batch plant — is seeking Planning Commis sion authorization to operate at a Park avenue site. Frank DeSalvo of Upland, representing the Ready Mix company, has asked for a Plan ning Commission determination on whether "a portable conveyor to be used for fransferring dry concrete components into a transit mix truck is similar and not more objectionable" than uses permitted in the M-2 general industrial district. The Commission will consider the question on Tuesday. Pomona Ready ilix moved its portable conveyor from property on High avenue near Ninth street and adjacent to the Red lands freeway last month after the City Council authorized court action against the firm. The Council maintained that the company had no business license, was illegally using city water, and that such an opera tion was not permitted by right of zone. Smce the Council's action, the concrete company has moved the portable conveyor to an empty lot in the 1400 block of Park avenue, according to Plan- It hopes to use the property as a fransfer point. The dry concrete would be lifted into the mix trucks, usmg the conveyor belt. Water would then be added and the cement batch would be mixed as the truck travels to the construction site where the cement is to be used. City Treasurer Marion Poyzer said that Pomona Ready Mix has not as yet obtained an offsite business license. The company does have a license that woidd permit them to mix their concrete at the "job site." Other matters to come before the Planning Commission on Tuesday are: Resumbmission of two resi dential subdivisions totaling 77 lots in the Church sfreet, San Bernardino avenue area. The tracts are proposed by Pickle and Gambill of Wilmington. Public hearing to consider a variance to permit an additional 26 square foot sign to be placed on the Alpha Beta build ing when the total allowable sign area for the building has been utilized.
