4 " Friday, May 8, 1964 Redlands Daily facts FIRE STARTED HERE — This box storage area on the north side of the Redlands Citrus Company packing house is where firemen believe last night's fire started. The metal roof of the storage orea collapsed before firemen were able to get water on the flames. (Doily Focts photo by Clifford J. Keni$on) Building total loss in eight-hour blaze (Continued from Page 1) walls remained standing this morning.-The fire could be seen from miles around as a cloudy overcast reflected a bright red glow. A large gallery of spectators was attracted. Redlands police kept the crowd at a safe distance as high voltage power lines along the north side were downed and other power lines on the south side, along San Bernardino avenue, threatened to faU. Low %vatcr pressure in the area hindered efforts to check the blaze. Firemen successfully pro lected two empty railroad re frigeralor cars on a siding adjacent to the building. The Bed- lands Heights company is one of two packing houses ser\'ed by the Pacific Electric spur line on San Bernardino avenue; William Weatherwax, manager of the packing house, said that about two carloads of or anges stored in the building wore lost.

Newly remodeled offices at the west end of the building escaped the flames and all of the company's records were salvaged. Weatherwa.x said office functions have already been relocated at the Western Fruit Growers packing house on Opal street in Mentone. Kedlands Associates decided not to rebuild the Western packing house at its former location at Stuart and Sixth streets in Redlands, and instead merge it with Crafton Citrus Co. in Mentone. According to Wealher\vax, the two remaining packing bouses operated by Redlands Associates — Western Fruit Growers and Mission Fruit Co. in Bryn Mawr; — have the capacity to process the remaining Valencia oranges and grapefruit that would have been handled at Redlands Heights. However, the two remaming houses will not be able to handle all of the Navel orange crop ne.xt winter, Weatherwax said. Principals in Redlands Associates arc E. B. Larscn of Redlands, Phillip and Tom Davis of Beverly Ilills and the Eding ton Fruit company. Before its acquisition by Bed- lands Associates, Redlands Heights was a Sunkist affiliate and for many years was man aged by George T. Mason, 5X0 West Olive.

Also on the special meeting agenda is a resolution in connection with the proposed annexation of commercial properties along the southside of West Redlands boulevard between Kansas and Alabama streets. Colton's water claim apparently has failed An attempt by the city of Colton to claim additional water rights by virtue of a deed to "overlying" rights from individ ual property owners has apparently failed. In a test case, the trial court turned the theory down and the; Fourth District Court of Appeals has now upheld the trial court^ Judge Albert Ross, who was trial judge in the original Orange County Water Suit, heard this new approach, too, and while saying it was a "novel idea," decreed that it isn't possible to separate "overlying' rights from the land. "Overlying" water rights are those which give each property owner the right to sink a well in his own back yard and use that water — but on his own property. In the Colton case, several property owners actually gave deeds to the overlying ri^ts to the city, ostensibly in return for city water service. The San Bernardino VaUey Municipal Water district hand led the test case for the city ofj Colton. Johnson pleased with trip (Continued from Page 1) constituted his biggest personal ovation since taking office.

Mr. Goode is employed as a the Te.\as-Bom President urged fellow southerners to ignore the "tattered and discredited banners" of racial extremists. Johnson spent 15 hectic hours Thursday whipping through six states of the poverty stricken Appalachia area. He rubbed elbows with sharecroppers and governors and told the people he was there "to listen and to learn" and to show them he caresi Few Hours Sle«p With only a few hours sleep, Johnson was back on the crowd- lined Appalachia trail bright and early today. The president said that while racial problems have deep roots in Southern soil, "they also trouble the passions of men on the shores of Marjiand, in the shjms of Philadelphia and in dark streets of New York." He reminded the Georgia lawmakers we are one nation and urged against heeding those who seek to stir old hostilities and kindle old hatreds. A crowd of several thousand persons broke through police barricades and surged forward for a better look at the President when he emerged from the hotel where the breakfast was held. The President shook bands with scores of well-wishers, many of them children carrying American flags, while police struggled to unsnarl the crowd and get the motorcade going. Johnson finally climbed in the closed car, rolled down the window and continued shaldog hands. Heavy crowds, liberally sprin kled v^ith high school bands, lined Johnson's route through Atlanta and the Chief Execu tive changed from a closed car to a convertible to get a better look. Accompanied by his daughter, 20-year-old Lynda Bird, who has proved a hit in her own right, Johnson bounded out of the car repeatedly to shake hands with members of the crowd and to look over the bands.
