Cinco De Mayo Today commemorates defeat of French army Cinco de Mayo — celebrated in Redlands last Saturday — is a national holiday obsen'cd throughout Jlexico today. A historical explanation of the holiday is offered by Joe H. Herrera of Redlands. The following information was compiled by Mr.Herrera: The holiday commemorates the battle of Puebla, fought at Fort Loreto about two miles northeast of the center of town, and at Fort Guadalupe, one fourth mile beyond Fort Loreto. In this batUe, 2,000 AIe.\ican troops won a victory over 6,000 French troops ending France's attempts to establish the Empire of Maximilian. The battle was fought and decided on Cinco de Mayo 1862. Benito Juarez, a pure blooded Zapotec Indian was bom in Oaxaca (pronounced: WAH-HA-KA) in 1806, and was president of Mexico from 1858 until his death in 1872. Juarez founded a liberal me.vican government. He was a lawj-er, was elected governor of his home State of Oaxaca in 1847, and won attention in 1855 with the JUAREZ LAW. This Law cut down the authority of the Roman Catholic Church in the affairs of state. He also helped to frame the Constitution of 1857 and adopted in 1917 in effect today. Mexican financial difficulties forced Juarez to stop payment on public debt for two years, as a result, the French under Napoleon III sent troops to Mexico to enforce the issue, and to set up an Empire on this hemisphere. Napoleon III, Emperor of France, was schcmmg to obtain Chfno center turns out large fire fighter crew The Southern Conservation Center at Chino has begun turn ing convicted criminal offenders into firefighters for service in Southern California's Conserva tion Camp network. The new •640-man institution is the second of its kind. The first, the California Conserva tion Center at Susanvillc, was dedicated last year. Selected offenders committed to the California Department of Corrections receive intensive forestry training in these cen ters prior to service in the camp system. The California Conservation Camp Program has near ly tripled in size since 1959. Camps are operated in a part ncrship involving the Depart ment of Corrections and the Division of Forestry of the Department of Conservation. Besides training men for service in the camps, the conservation centers provide a manpower pool for use in area emergencies, such as flood, major fire, explosion, earthquake, etc. , The Department of Corrections, which operates the conservation centers with the as sistance of Division of Forestry instructors, plans two more subcenters: One, the Sierra Conservation Center for 1,200 men is already under construction in Sonora, Tuolumne County. The other, the North Coast Coaser vation Center will be built near Garberville in Humboldt County. Conservation camp crew men are carefully screened from the total Department of Corrections population of more than 26,000 inmates. Southern Conservation Center Superintendent Robert L. Ekiund said today. Ekiund, a veteran of 27 years in correctional work, said the Southern Center and the 1,200- man center at Susanville are especially designed with dormitories, instead of cells, and adjoining counseling and activity rooms so that men assigned to 16-man training crews learn together and live together as a unit under the guidance of a single Correctional Program Supervisor.

Opponents argue that to change zone lines solely for the purpose of integrating schools would be assigning people on the basis of race—exactly what the Supreme Court has forbidden. Monday's Supreme Court action was in the form of a brief order rejecting the Negroes' petition for review. There was no written opinion or statement of any kind by the court. It has long been established that denial of review reflects no expression of opinion by the high court that the lower court was right. Legally, all it means is four or more justices did not vote to hear the case. The court will grant review if four justices vote for it. The NAACP told the Supreme Court that similar disputes were at stake in Cincinnati, Sacra mento, Calif., San Francisco, Rochester, Westbury, N.Y., Am ityvillc, N.Y., and Springfield, Mass. Racial disturbances in volving de facto segregation have occurred in such communities as Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago. power in Mexico (The Monroe Doctrine of the United States forbade any such attempts by European powers, but the United States was torn by the War between the States, April 2, 1861 to April 9, 1863, and was unable to inlerefer.) A few years later he ap pointed Archduke -Maximilian of Austria as Emperor of Me .K- ico. Napoleon III and a group of members of the Catholic Party of .Mexico offered Mexi- milian the crown, he accepted and arrived in .Mexico City on June 12. 1864. Maximilian and his beautiful wife, Carlota, took royal resi dence in Chapultepcc Castle on the outskirts of the City. Carlota designed the lovely formal gardens, to this day, Chapul­ tepcc Castle contains many relics of the era of Maximilian and Carlota, the furnishings of her bedroom and of the drawing room were given by Emperor Napoleon IIL Immediately a war began between the forces ot Maximilian, and of Benito Juarez. In the midst of the civil war that followed, news was received of the end of the war between the States. The United States now had time to enforce the Monroe Doctrine, and had a large and seasoned army to do so. Napoleon III was practically ordered to withdraw his troops from Mexico, he did so, and JIaximilian was left without support. In 1866 Maximilian's wife, Carlota left Mexico and returned to Europe to beg for help for her husband, she went to various Capitals of Europe and to Pope Pius IX, but was unsuccessful. Meanwhile Max- imihan fought bravely, and diplomatically for his crown. He was a man of ability and high character, although told to, flee for his safety, he had determined to remain in Mexico and do his best for that country. In 1867 he left Cbapultcpec Castle of Mexico City at the head of a body of troops and marched to QUERETARO. There he was betrayed by General Gomez, a trusted aide. Ma.ximilian and his staff fled to EL CERRO DE LAS CAMPANAS (Hill of the bcUs) from the TEMPLO DE LA CRUZ (Temple of the cross) on entrance of the Republican forces. He was captured by the troops. Maximilian surrendered his sword, and here on the Cerro de las Campanas, Maximilian and two of his generals faced the firing squad on Sunday morning June 19, 1867. The execution was carried out on orders of President Benito Juarez, in spite of pleas for mercy by three European governments. A few years later, Mexico granted permission to the Austrian government to build the Expiratory Chapel wluch now stands on the slope. Carlota lost her mind and Edison plant in operation in desert An additional source of clec trie power surged into life on the Mojave Desert Friday, as Unit No. 2 at Cool Water steam electric generating station was placed in commercial operation by Southern California Edison company. Unit No. 2 at Cool Water, located ten miles cast of Barstow and two miles cast of Daggett, represents an investment of approximately SIO million and boosts the total cost of the station to about $22.4 million. Unit Two joins a 66,000-kilowatt unit at Cool Water which was completed and placed "on the line" three years ago. The combined power producing cap ability of the two units is now 141,000 kilowatts — enough elec trieity to serve a city of more than 175,000 population. With the boiler-unit heights soaring to 118 and 150 feet, the station is an impressive sight in the Mojave Desert for many miles in all directions. In addition to its role as a producer of vital electric pow cr, the station is important to San Bernardino county residents as a major source of tax revenue. With completion of Unit No. 2, property taxes paid by Edison on the station will run in excess of $555,000 annually. was confined in a Chateau in Belgium, she died there sixty years later in 1927. This was the culmination of events that followed this historical date of CINCO DE .MAYO 1862 at PUEBLA, so thus it is a national holiday celebrated in Mexico. San Bernardino had a new chief of its Board of Water Commissioners today — W. R. Holcomb, one of the leaders of the group which was opposed to the annexation of San Bernardino to the Metropolitan Water district. He was appointed to the board yesterday by Mayor Donald G.Mauldin after GUbert H. Patton and the other two members of the commission agreed to resign if Holcomb would take over. Two other members remain to be appointed. San Bernardino residents voted not to annex to MWD last week despite appeals from the Water Commission, the mayor and the Water Action Council. Since that time, leaders of| these organizations have been stepping down with statements that the leaders of the opposition should now assume the responsibility for solving San Bernardino's water problems. San Bernardino, Redlands, Colton and Riverside all face major water cutbacks in October when the Orange County suit judgment becomes effective. But San Bernardino is the only city where the cutback will be less than enough to serve residents of the community.
