In view of the recent report of the school committee of the county grand jury and a letter received from A. R. Clifton, county superintendent of schools, the question of ^‘whether or not to evacuate the present First Avenue school building and, if *------ Arcadians Attend Associated Chamber of Commerce Meet so. what steps to take?" was discusscd at length at the meeting. As the report of the grand jury was received by the board Just prior to the meeting, without allowing time for consideration, the members deferred action on the question until a complete study of the situation can be made. In his letter addressed “To all school officials,” the county superintendent of schools, A. R. Clifton, points out that: “I am assembling data as rapidly as possible on our confusing problem, and in a few days may be in position to offer better advice than I am able to offer at this time In the meantime all of you responsible for property and children, as officials in our many districts, should think calmly and constructively on the individual problems of your individual districts/* In the letter Mr. Clifton enclosed a copy of the report of the school committee of the 1933 grand jury. He asks that his letter and enclosure be brought to tlie attention of the entire board. In its report the school committee of the grand jury points out: **Lou Anireles is in a known seismic area. Eartliqnakes jiave occurred In this locality with considerable regularity In the past, and as mountain making Is still iroing on In this west* ern section of the coniineiii, they are to be expected in the future.” The report discloses ccj'tain reports of geologists and technical societies point out the possibility of major earthquake shocks, The committee furthei* pointed out findings of the “coroner's Jury composed of experts in all phases of building construction,” which jury reported "that earthquakes of themselves rarely if ever kill—it is the falling portions of Improperly constructf'd buildings that do the fatal work,” and that “damage was greatest in cases where emphasis was placed upon quantity rather than quality, effect rather than stability, or fostered by the thought of constructing only to skimpily meet minimum regulations.” The school committee of the grand Jury further points out that a series of hearings were held—flrst with the Board of Supervisors and then in turn with the mayor, council, city attorney and boards of education of every incorporated city in Los Angeles county. Following the meeting January meeting of the San Gabriel Valley Associated Chambers of Commerce meeting was held Tuesday Night In Christian church in Glendora. A number of Interesting talks were heard at the meeting. The gathering was welcomed by Vi, C. Miller, president of the Glendora Chamber of Commerce. Response to the welcome was made by Roy Teeters, president of the Associated Chambers of Commerce. Hoeppel Confers with President Congreiian Diicuiies CWA and Veterans' Problems with Chief Executive Notwithstanding that Congressman Hoeppel was invited by the President to confer with him on various problems as a result of which Hoeppel journoyed to Washington before the session, he was unable to meet the President until January 4. The first sub;cct discussed was tnt C. W. A. and lî". application lo C.ili-fornia. A statiîment that a pensioner was wholly removed from the pension rolls, along with others of a similar character, was presented to the President, with the assertion that such individuals were being discriminated against In the C. W. A. setup. The B'îneral veteran problem was discussed, .ind as a result of the discussion, Ho»îppel Is very hopeful and optimistic that remedial action will be taken to restore to the pension rolls 9.657 jnfirm and disabled men who were summarily removed because they were under 55 yeojs uf age. The question of equal and adequate hospitalization and domiciliary care was discussed.
