Jensen said costs cannot be estimated until the board makes a policy decision “as to what you are going to charge them for.” Mrs. Schultz insisted that Jensen make a study of the success or failure of other county programs where police protection is furnished cities. Fusselman. who represents the Ross Valley, said he would prefer to make the investigation himself and report back to the board. “We have an administrator to do that,” Mrs. Schultz replied. “Unfortunately, we do,” Fusselman shot back. gional Supporting his unsuccessful motion were Commissioners George Scott and Niels Schultz, with George Ludv and Chairman William Upton opposing. Cuzner later won unanimous approval of a motion calling for re-evaluation of areas designated for com- i mercial use by the North Marin master plan.

He wore a blue sailor cap and he held his grand • father's hand tightly in that thicket of grown-up coats and trousers. In a minute the San Leandro would sound her whistle and pull out of the Ferry Building slip, bound for Oakland. Then there would be fun on the old ferry boat for the new sailor. “7 never rode on a ferry boat before," he said, looking up at us. “Will we see the bridge?” When the San Leandro got under way, his grandfather held him shoulder high, and he saw the Bridge and Treasure Island and the ships and gulls and the Bay. He would never see them again in this funny old once-upon-a-time way. Neither would we, but we felt happy that so many had done it before and that he had done it once. * * • • * Indeed, we were pleased that so many Bay Area people of all sizes and fancies turned out for a “last ferry boat ride.” As owners of the San Leandro, we know she was pretty crowded most of the time, and maybe a few toes got stepped on. But all in all it looked to us as if everybody was having fun. To all of you adventurers who joined the throng, may we say “Thank You” for your interest and good company aboard. The ferry boats will live longer in more happy memories because so many of you were with us. To the newspapers of San Francisco, Oakland and the Bay Area, to the radio and television stations, and to those throughout the country who cover news, go special thanks for their most generous attention to the somehow merry, somehow mournful passing of the “covered bridge.* Southern Pacific
