County orders study of sales tax SAN BERNARDINO (CNS)- The fate of the sales tax structure in the county as it now stands is likely to hinge on the conclusions of a study committee wliich the County Supervisors decided to appoint after a meeting with city representatives this morning. At issue is the amount of the city sales tax cities are willing to share with the county, if the county continues to collect a sales tax outside city boundaries. This rate was established sev oral years ago when it was agreed that sales fax revenue would go to pay off the county building program. Recently, cities have com plained that the county is getting more money than it needs to pay off the building bonds and several cities have already decided to reduce tlie county's share. As a result, the county has threatened to halt the county sales tax entirely. Today, however, the Supervisors agreed to do nothing along that line until after a study has been made — if cities will rescind actions they have taken. The study group would be appointed by the Supervisors but cities will be invited to have representation. Downtown plan to be discussed Information regarding the fu ture of Orange street in its application to the 701 study of downtOKTi Redlaods will be discussed tomorrow in a public study meeting at 1:30 p.m. in Safety Hall. In addition, a major down' town property owner has asked the committee for time to pre sent preliminary plans for the use of his property since he desires to integrate it with the 701 program, the committee said.

Last month, the same group made a clean sweep of honors at the University of Redlands Festival. Sponsored by the Southern California School Band and Or volve members of the Citylchestra Association, the all day Council, the Planning commis- affair included judging on per sion, the 701 committee and the public. The idea of a meeting to dis cuss Orange street arose after Victor Gruen Associates concluded that Orange would have to remain open as it presently is, even though this was not felt to be the optimum solution.

TIZZY By Kate Osann Supervisors neutral on wild area hearing County supervisors modified their position on commercial ski development in the San Gorgonio Wild Area yesterday by declaring they would not oppose public hearing if called by U.S. Secretary of .Agriculture Orville Freeman. • The action was taken at the request of the County Board ol Trade which submitted three resolutions before writing one the supervisors would accept. Our job is to promote and get people to come to San Bemar' dino County," Dr. D. L. Van Voorhis of the Board of Trade told supervisors. A hearing on opening the north slope of Mt. San Gorgonio to wmter ski development is being sought by San Gorgonio Ski Lifts Inc. of Los Angeles, with the support and cooperaUon ol the Far Western Ski Associ ation. So far, the U.S. Forest Service has rejected their plans. The proposed commercial de- elopment would involve 3,50i) acres above the 9,000 foot level. Supervisors S. Wesley Break told representatives of the County Board of Trade that their resolution saying there is a dc mand for access to the area was not based on fact. Break said that Supervisors had previously voted to retain the land for water supply and for youth camps. He added that only the spokesman for group which wants to exploit the ski possibilities of the snow area is pushing for a hearing to decide what to do about the property. "If Sec. Orville Freeman, of the agriculture department, ants a hearing, he can call one," Break declared. Supervisors then went along with Break's proposal that the Board say it does not oppose a hearing, if Freeman wants to call one. The last public hear jing on opening the area was held in 1947. Eleven trainees in first Forest Camp graduation Donaldr McKee to build county health center SAN BERNARDINO (CNS)- A contract to build a new county health center at 3rd and Mt. View was awarded Monday by the County Board of Supervisors, at a price about 25 per cent more than the Board was told the project would cost. The job was given to the Redlands firm of Donald and Mc Kee, after the low bidder asked to be relieved from fulfilling his offer because of a clerical error of $33,836 in his bid. The Redlands firm bid $904,000 for the health center. The low bidder was W. M. Stewart, Stanford Herliek, county counsel, said Supervisors could throw out this company's offer on finding that it had really erred in the arithmeUc in its bidding. C. W. JlcCoIlougli, director ol the county public works department, said that the bid of Sm, 000, compared with an estimate of about §700,000, was due to failure to make new calcula Hons when building plans were changed. He said the structure would actually cost tlie amount bid to build. The county has enough money in the funds it has set aside for health department projects to come out even on the health center, McColiough said. He explained that other work was bid in at less than, was estimated. Eleven "rehabilitated trainees of tbe state's Forestry Youth Camp at Oak Glen will become the first graduates of the experimental program tomorrow. The trainees have completed voluntary si.x-month terms at the forestry camp. Eight of them are leaving the program to seek employment or to re turn to school, and three are remaining with the program for an additional six months. Success of the Youth Conservation Corp program estab lisbed by the state Legislature last year may depend on the accomplishments of the II young men, according to Francis Raymond, State Forester for the California Division of Forestry in Sacramento. Objectives of the Forestry Youth Training Program' are to provide trainees an opportunity to develop traits, attitude and habits of work and study necessary to obtain em ployment or return to school when they leave the program. The 11 youths who graduate tomorrow represent half of the 22 trainees who opened the Oak Glen camp last Nov. 1. Of the 11 trainees who dropped out, three are einployed and one has returned to school. A check is being made on the remaining seven youths. Camp Director Bob Green said today that the program has experienced a 50 per cent turnover of trainees. A total of 180 boys have been approved for the camp. Half of those ap proved have cither not shown up or have quit. Immaturity, disinterest, and home sickness have been the{ major reasons for the dropouts, with employment, military service and school a contributing factor. Green said. A total of 25 youths in the 16-year-old age group have dropped out primarily because they were too imature to benefit from the experience. Of the 25, a total of five were discharged. But Green is optimistic that the dropout problem is being solved by better screening methods and by a two-week probaUonary period started recently. "Dropout among the 50 boys who have come to the camp in the past three months is down to about 10 to 15 per cent. Green related. The camp, located at Pine Bench of the San Bernardino Riverside county line, has a current frainee population of 90 of which 34 youths are scheduled for graduation within the next month. Green stated that four of the 34 boys soon to lie graduated have earned enough credits at the camp's voluntary school to obtain diplomas from their home town high schools. "A lot has been accomplished here," Green observed, "this is a pilot camp and.we have had to change our methods to find the best program." He added, "And we're not selling the dropouts short either, some boys don't need as much adjustment as others and nave gained self-confidence even diir- ing a brief stay." The California- Division of Forestry is assisteSd iii management of the program by the Departments of Education, Em ployment. Industrial Relations and the Youth Authority. While at camp, the young men engage in forestry projects such as insect control, fire road construction and maintenance, fire hazard reduction and fire control. Academic training and job counseling is available.

Planted on 113 acres near Camp Angelus. Barton Flats and Converse, the sccdUngs in eluded Ponderosa pine, Jcffry pine and Coulter pine. In addition, 1500 Sequoia and Moritery Knobcone pine seed lings were, planted in camp grounds, along scenic roads and around ranger stations. The newly planted pine acres, for the most part, can be seen as "tree plantations" from Highway 38. The Forest Service noted that the new trees will provide future stands of timber for both recreational enjoyment and for timber production. Receipts from the logging of insect susceptible trees in the area provided funds for part of the reforestation work which has been under the direct sup ervision of forester Theodore Zrelak. Members of Mountain Home Troop 2 of the Boy Scouts earned their Conservation Merit badges by spending a Saturday assisting in the Converse planta-. tions. And the Banning Kiwanis club and the Beaumont Wom en's club earned the plaudits of the Forest Service for their contributions under the "Pennies for Pines" program. These organizations donated funds so that trees could be planted on two acres north of Banning. A sign has been erected naming the plantation By PHIL NEWSOM UPi Foreign News Analyst One of Uie fragedies of Cyprus is that Greek and Turkish Cypriots are dying in a stnig gle which should be settled by the baUot box. Unfortunately, in what now can be called a full-scale civil war, differences have gone far beyond any such logical solu tion. And, whether the 1960 consti- tuion giving Greek and Turkish C>T)riots the right of veto over one another ever was a workable one also is a matter now of um'mportancc. So deep have gone Uie hatreds that certainly it won't work now. The only workable solutions seems the extreme ones. Clement PTA to elect officers at meeting Election and installation of of ficers will be one of the main items on tbe agenda at the organization meeting of tbe new P.T.A. of the Henry G.

All parents of present sixth and seventh grade students who will attend Clement Junior High School next fall are urged to at tend the meeting Thursday night. and its cooperators. RAYBURN HONORED BONHAM, Tex. (UPI) - The most recent tribute to the late House Speaker Sam Raybum was the naming of a one-year- old National Guard Armory after him in his home town. It is n 0 w the Sam Raybum Memorial Armory. A war that neither wants remains a possibility between Greece and Turkey, with NATO, already torn by dis agreement, a further possible victim. U.N. in Middle In the middle, in a not unfamiliar situation, is the United Nations. It would take an optimist indeed to beheve that the U.N. can in any way meet the three - month target date it originally gave itself to find a compromise solution. On the' one side is the Greek Cypriot majority of more than 400,000 led by President Arch bishop Makarios. Makarios demands revision of the constitution to eliminate the Turkish veto. .And on the other is the Turkish mmority of less than 100,000 fearful of losing its minority protection and demanding partition of the island. So far the great tragedy ofjt' Cyprus is its mounting number "' of dead, its thousands of refugees and its wrecked towns and villages. No Longer Local But a conflict which should remain a local one aU-eady goes far beyond its island boundaries. Thousand of Soviet -built weapons find their way to the hands of Greek Cypriots through the United Arab Republic of President Gamal Abdel Nasser's love of Makarios but for his hatred of Turkey. The U. S. Ambassy is bombed and Americans are threatened. British troops, accepted by Jlakarios in the role of peacemakers, find themselves the gargets of snipers' bullets. United Nations forces, their own role imprecise, find themselves accused ol favoritism on both sides. Makarios proved himself a master tactician in the nego- The rain that wasn't supposed to happen, at least according to the forecasters, pounded ferociously for nearly an hour early this morning, dropping .18 iiich before becoming a misty fog. Ramfall was generally light throughout the. area although stations in the vicinity of Riverside, Corona and Elsinore reported about .30 inch. Nearly all the recordable rain fell in a downpour between about 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. but a mist began to fall in Uie CaH- mesa area about noon and in Redlands about 1:30 p.m. In Redlands, the downpour came with-.such a flurry that gutters were quickly filled and many constnicUon projects were forced to suspend oper- jations for tbe day. I The season rainfall total for I Redlands is n o w up to 11.38 inches. This compares with only 7.25 last year but is still below what is considered normal of nearly 14 inches by the end of April. Court of Appeals refuses to reopen water suit The Fourth District Court ot Appeal has refused to reopen the Orange County Water suit against Redlands, San Bernardino, and Colton. A request for a rehearing on the case was made to the State Supreme court weeks ago by the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water district. But late last week the high court declined to hear the case and referred it back to the appellate court. Yesterday, in San Diego where the court is now sitting, the justices denied the Muni petition to reopen the case. San Bernardino is holding an election today to determine whether or not it shall join the MeUroplitan Water district as one way to solve its water problems which will become acute in October when the Orange county judgement is put into effect. tiations which led to C>'prus independence in 1960, and in this war of many losers, if there is a winner he is the one. By successfully resisting proposals Uiat NATO nations take over the pacifying role and m- volving the U.N. instead, he has reduced the chances of intervention by Turkey.
