Supervisors asked to help Teenagers seek use of Enchanted Forest SAN BERNARDINO (CNS)- A proposal by San Bernardino teenagers that the county assist them in a project to re-open Enchanted Forest near Running Springs was approved in principle by the county Board of Supervisors Monday. The supervisors decided to study the plan to reopen the bankrupt amusement park for operation as a year-around recreation and educational facility. The Teen Council's spokesman was Clement Johnson, who told the supervisors the members had a projected plan embracing all young people and ethnic groups. He said operational revenue might be partially obtained from Federal agencies. He added that the County Dependency Prevention Commission had also indicated its support of the proposal. Rev. Jack A. Sullivan Jr., Baptist minister and adult spokesman for the teens organization, said the young people planned the Enchanted Forest program as a "do it ourselves project," and are willing to assume responsibility for operation and maintenance once it was underway. "The county's expense in the program will be very small," Rev. Sullivan said. "The cost to the county will be less than CARD OF THANKS We wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the kindness and sympathy- extended us during our bereavement.

This is not a plan confined to the City of San Bernardino only, but embraces young people of all communities." Chairman Ross .Dana explained to the spokesman and these teens who accompanied them to the meeting that no money is budgeted for activities like those proposed for Enchanted Forest. "We are all interested in furthering the progress of our young people and I believe my fellow members endorse my sentiments." "However," added Dana, "this is something requiring study by various departments, their findings and recommendations to then be considered by the board." Johnson told supervisors the Enchanted Forest site is owned by Jack Roberts. He said Roberts had indicated he would make the land and facilities available to the teens at a nominal charge. In his brief read to the supervisors, Johnson said the area included 25 buildings, the "world's largest roller rink," horseback riding facilities, picnic area, hiking and winter sports facilities. "We would like to make a one-year trial of the program," Johnson requested, "and' demonstrate the need and accomplishments of a planned program which would include group dynamic discussions, programmed readings, debating, educational, sessions on ethnic problems and living with one another, and recreational programs which will be not only athletic and health building, but will also advance understanding of fellow teen citizens and appreciation of American citizenship." Questioned by both Dana and Mikesell on transportation to the forest area. Rev.-Sullivan replied that the Dependency Prevention commission and other agencies had indicated assistance in meeting the problem. "We-also have members and adults who have offered their aid in transporting young people there," he said. The supervisors agreed that Johnson's presentation and Rev. Sullivan's suggestions would receive thorough investigation. Members of the teen organization, as well as Johnson, Rev. Sullivan and other officers will be called back to a later meeting for further discussion, they said. Native Cuban to teach UR Spanish classes A native of • Cuba who holds two.

Sheriff seeks reports Stiffer regulations sought for pawn shops $2.5 million for completion Scherer awarded contract to finish Vegas project L. P. Scherer, Redlands and Las Vegas general contractor* has been awarded" a $2,500,000 contract for the completion of the Landmark Tower, a 27-story hotel, casino and restaurant structure in Las Vegas. Ground was broken 'for .the project in September, 1961, with completion planned for early 1963. Because of inadequate financing, work on the project was suspended in. 1963 before completion.-Scherer was the contractor on the project. Final papers were deposited in escrow last Thursday transferring title of the property to Plaza Tower, Inc., a Nevada corporation made up of investors including Frank Caroll, developer who launched the original tower project; his wife, Sue Caroll; their legal counsel. Sheldon F. Sandler and Bernard £. Ballon, Kansas City, Mo.; L. P. Scherer, and Hugh Wallace and George Bethe, owners of the franchised chain of Kopper Kettle Restaurants. Plans call, for completing the Tower and adding a ground floor casino, restaurant and cocktail lounge. The Landmark apartments' will be converted into 524 hotel rooms. There will be two cocktail lounges and two. casinos,' one on the ground floor and one on the 27th floor. A glass enclosed elevator will carry passengers to the top, enabling passengers to view all of Las Vegas. The top floor will have a sky bar with an extraordinary view of the city. It is the tallest structure in the state. Because of the legal entanglements involved in the de­ layed project, Caroll's attorneys stated that the acquisition of title required more than 5,000 legal man hours and the settlement of more than 40 law suits. Prior lien claimants have been fully satisfied. Caroll anticipates completion of the project in early 1967. The entire project-has 127,614 square feet of floor space. There is a total of 9,014 cubic yards of concrete in the building. Two basements extend 30 feet into the ground and 1.267 cubic yards of concrete were poured in the 5-foot-ihick, solid, reinforced concrete footing, 80 feet in diameter. The tower is 60 feet in diameter with a bubble for the 26th and 27th floors with a diameter of 141 feet. The structure is 297 feet 11 inches tall.

SAN BERNARDINO (CNS)— The county sheriff s department received the green light from the county Board of Supervisors Monday for an ordinance which would tighten control of sales to junk dealers and second hand stores by private individuals. The ordinance proposed by the sheriff's department will require firms dealing in second hand merchandise to be licensed and to make daily, descriptive reports to the sheriff's office of all merchandise purchased from individuals or firms. A public hearing will be held by the supervisors oa September 19. The ordinance was proposed by sheriff's detective Fred R Smith, in charge of the pawn shop and junk detail. He told supervisors that present regulations of junk dealers and second hand stores were not stiff enough. He proposed, and the supervisors approved his suggestion, that an ordinance be passed requiring dealers in second hand goods and junk to be licensed at an initial cost of $200 with a charge of $150 annually thereafter. In addition, the ordinance will require dealers to make comprehensive reports by noon each day of items purchased. Detective Smith said that while junk dealers are presently making reports to the department they were sketchy and did not furnish enough information to identify stolen property. "This ordinance will be of considerable assistance in the recovery of stolen property," Smith said. Supervisor Daniel D. Mikesell, who moved for adoption of the ordinance, seconded by Super visor Mrs. Nancy E. Smith, said the proposed licensing fees would merely' defray cost of operating the increased duties of the sheriff's detail. Hew Twentynine Palms highway soon to open Completion of the new seven- mile Route 62 (Twentynine Palms Highway) expressway section northerly of Interstate 10 is expected later this week, the California Division of Highways announced today.
