6 .-r Wed./ April 29, m Redlands Daily Faets Hassle over sales tax City representatives in clash with supervisors SAN BERNARDINO (CNS) — Feelings between city and county officials seemed bitter Tues:day in a hearing before the • County Board of Supervisors over the cities' plans to cut the county's share of the sales tax. Nancy Smith, Board chairman, lectured the representatives of the cities on the services provided by the county for their citizens, and Supervisors S. Wesley Break and Daniel D. Mikesell accused them of seeking to break an agreement made in 1957. Except for spokesmen for Vic ton'ille and Upland and a telegram from Barstow, the other cities showed no sign of weakening in their determination to proceed with a reduction from 7 and a half per cent to 5 per cent as the county's share of the cities' portion of the sales lax. If the county does not agree, as pointed out by Leslie Harris, of Harris Co., the sales tax taled toward unincorporated areas, where there was. no sales tax. Harris told city officials that the 7 and a half per cent the county is getting is not really enough, to meet the building program for which the tax sharing was voted and for future projects. Rolland Tomquist, analyst for the San Bernardino Taxpayers Assn., proposed a study, to take about 60 days to decide if the county's share of the sales tax is too little or too big. Jlrs. Gladys Butts, mayor of Victorville, said she thought her city might hold off on the ordm ance it has passed to end its county pact, as of this week, and James L. Christensen, mayor pro-tem of Upland, said his city thought it would lose more than it would gain by increasing! its share of the sales tax. Supervisor Ross Dana declared that he thought Barstow Hold-outs were led by Kenneth collection situation will take on might hold off, due to a tele- something of the chaos which ruled before 1956. Then, each city had to collect its own tax, and buying gravi- gram received at the meeting that said the city was supporting the move for a greater sales tax share "with hesitation." G. Ziebarth, Jr., mayor of Mont clair. He said making the study to see what the share of sales tax should be would be acceptable, if Supervisors would first agree to the 5 per cent proposal It could be changed later, he argued, if the study proved it should be. Harold Martin, Ontario city manager, told the Super/isors that the cifies were up against jbudget deadlines and asked them to adopt Ziebarth's propos al. Mrs. Smith replied sharply: I doubt that anybody not an elected official should be trying to,persuade other cities. Richard Wright, administrator for the City of Chino, backed up the request for some stand by Supervisors. He said some thing has to be done wthin two weeks. Ziebarth asked for action on his proposal. He said the study; then could be made. "We have made a study," said Supervisor Break. "That's how we arrived at 7 and a half perj cent, but now you want to throw Ruby's sister rushes to his side DALLAS (UPI)— A sister of condemned killer Jack Ruby rushed across a courtroom sobbing, "He's so sick, why can't they do something?" at the start of a hearing today for new trial. Pale and with his head bowed, the S3-j-car-oId slayer of accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was led into trial Judge Joe B. Brown's court after his sister had taken her seat. Brown convened the hearing and then recessed it for 90 minutes to give Dist. Atly. Henry Wade time to reply to defense motions filed Tuesday. it out the window." Supervisor Mikesell declared there might be the question raised: "How can we trust the ciUes?" Supervisors then voted to set up a committee to study coun ty financmg, with the cities to name its representatives to meet with the group. In addition, the Board agreed to write to all cities to ask them to put off any action to break the sales tax pact until the study can be com pieted, in 60 days. The county gets more than S2,000,000 annually in sales tax revenues. Dropping the tax would result in an increase of 21 cents per $100 of asses-sed valuation. C of C directors call for promotion to sell homes Concern for a reported oversupply of houses in Redlands was expressed today by Chamber of Commerce directors who called for an out-of-town sales promotion program. AlUiough the Chamber's Board of Directors took no official action, its members were clearly in favor of a joint program with the Redlands Board of Realtors to promote the Redlands real estate market by advertising in the Los Angeles melropoliUan area. "We're facing a real problem," said Chamber president Dr. David B. Haag, "In the next few months there will be more houses for sale than there are people to buy them." The Chamber recently participated in the publication and circulation of a brochure en- tUed "The Houses of Redlands." Dr. Haag said the brochure was only the first step. "Far more action needs to be taken to help builders and Realtors, he declared. Creation of a joint committee of the Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Realtors to explore the housing problem and to formulate possible programs for dealing wth it was urged by Dr. Haag. He also suggested that the home tours inaugurated in 1962 sion transferred a large number] was recommended by director of families to the Redlands area I Hal Price, a real estate agent, 'xr» Tw_v 1 .1 1. t.r be reactivated. "People are beginning to shy away from Redlands because they are afraid of a decline in property values because of an excess of houses," Haag stated. The sales' promotion program Senators take stick out of Unruh's bill SACRAMENTO (UPI) - The Senate Education Committee today took the stick out of Assembly Speaker Jesse Unruh's carrot-and-stick education bill, then heartily passed it' on a voice vote. The bill went to the Senate Finance Committee, wtiich could try to make some further adjustments.

City Planning Commissioners yesterday denied the bakery's request for a 26 square foot identification sign because Alpha Beta had already used all the allowable sign area with previously appraved signs. Van De Kamps sought a variance to permit their small sign; Planning Commissioners were sympathetic, but refused to yield because Alpha Beta market officials had been previously cautioned that their signs would take up all the area permitted by law. "Alpha Beta will have to reduce the size of its sign. It's their problem," declared Commission Chairman E. R. Hales. Commissioner Joseph Prendergast observed: "The history-of this shopping center has been to ask for variances rather than to conform with the ordinances."

Dennis, sunburned and silent, was flown to Memphis late Tuesday night by tlie FBI, where his parents met him on the runway. His mother, his father and his 12-year-oId brother — the last person in Humboldt to see him—clutched the boy and cried. Dennis himself showed no emotion until they got into an FBI car to be driven back home to Humboldt. Tears came to his eyes then. The FBI said the boy was apparently unharmed. When the news reached Humboldt that be was safe, people ran into the streets shouting "They found the boy." His aunt wept hysterically and his mother sobbed. "I ant to let the excitement die down... to make sure he is all ght. I may just hold him for while," she said.
