Argus (Newspaper) - May 20, 1960, Fremont, California Vol. I, No. 4 Published at Newark, California ,15 Friday, 'May 20, 1960 REC COMMITTEE PRICES MS -Like. any family' on; a budget, Newark: Recreation Committee take, a 'close at much the city 'can spend for parks, and .thetuwill try to de- termine how much that money will buy; before going on any shopping expeditions. .The Committee has agreed it -doesn't want to initiate a city- wide survey until it has se_yeral concrete" proposals, and estimat- ed costs to discuss. At last Monday's meeting al- ternatives suggested included (1) a community park; (2) a swimming pool; (3) two com- munity parks of 15 acres or less, with a community center build- ing in one; (4) (5) three neighborhood recreational cen- ters next-to schools. Concensus was that the com- mittee doesn't even want to talk about these alternatives in any type of city-wide poll, until they can put a price tag on each. So they'll meet again Monday, at p.m., at the Wooden Shoe, to consider a costs'bre'akdown on various phases of the recently defeated parks bond issue. Once costs of the segments within the original issue are de- termined, the committee will study plans drawn by the archi- tects to determine what can be lopped off. The survey will be initiated as soon as alternatives are priced Stanley Perry said he wanted the survey made "while the is sue is still alive in people's minds. It's fresh enough now to get some pretty intelligent an he declared. QUEEN JUDY REIGNS Judy Winter, Salt Lake City's gift .to. Newark, is Miss Newark of 1960. Brown-haired Judy 16, "and the' daughter pf Mrs. en B. Winter, 36647 Hafrier was; selected last Saturday in a contest at M. D. Silva School. The contest opened the Newark; Chamber of Commerce Mid-Spring Festival, sponsored by the Merchants Division. Picked to reign with- Queen Judy in 1900 were. Carolyn Rush- ing, M y r n a Shirley Bernardo and Linda Yowell. Judy, a junior at Washington High School, is the third of four Winter sisters. She's never won a beauty 'contest but then she's never entered one be- fore, either. She has worked at the local training center for queens, Fay's Apparel, and en- tered this contest only at the urging of her friends. She said her parents were "surprised but happy" when she won. Judy was determined to be philosophical about it. "I thought when I entered, I wasn't Miss Newark last year and I didn't miss anything. So if I don't get to be Miss Newark this year, I won't miss anything, either." But Judy did get to be Miss Newark, and she certainly isn't going to miss anything in the way of queen assignments. She's busy the rest of this week at Newark Pavillion, where she makes nightly drawings for the 100 prizes Newark's merchants are giving away at the Festival. Saturday she and her court will make their first appearance on Newark's new float, to be unveiled on this final night of the Festival. PET HOSPITAL UNDER WAt MERE That's Newark's first animal hospital going up at "5454 Central Avenue announces Joseph Car- and builder, The 1400 square-foot veterin- ary hospital will have accommo- dations for 35 to 40 pets. It's scheduled for completion by mid-August. Dr. Wilfred S. Bentham, who formerly practiced in Washing- ton Township, and who how is affiliated with a San Leandro veterinary hospital, is to be op- erator of the Newark establish- ment. SHE DANCES, DRUMS AND TEACHES A. dancing, drumming dynamo of Glenelle Ev- ans, 17, who keeps a B-plus aver- age and enters queen contests in her free moments. Glenelle is instructor for Don- na's Dancing School, 725 Jenni- fer Street. Right now she is readying 55 small fry for a re- cital at Washington High School Sunday at 2 p.m. Glenelle started dancing at three, under the tutelage of her mother, Mrs. Donna Scheide- man. She has been teaching for the past five years. Her life's ambition is just to keep right on dancing, and ultimately to es- tablish a fine arts school in Newark where students can learn dra- matics, dancing and art." She's well on her way to a career, for she's already had a job offer from a San Francisco night club. Maybe she'll take it, after graduation, or maybe she'll try for a television spot. But Glenelle does a lot more things than tap, acrobatics, bal- let, modern, toe and hula danc- ing. She's the drummer in Wash ington High School's marching band and tympanist in the con- cert group. She has so much fun with her drums she's' giving les- sons in it. There are other high school activities as instance, the Girls Athletic Association and the Science Club. And there's plenty, of time .left over to keep up that good grade av- erage in the commercial course she's taking. But this doesn't mean there's no work involved in the 10 dance classes a week, which Glenelle handles.. There's a whole lot more to teaching a dancing class than chanting "one-two-three- Glenelle assures. "There's lots of psychology in- she says. "You have to learn which ones don't like each other, and to keep them separat- ed. And you have to handle each one differently." Glenelle's pupils range in age from 3 to 17, and include both boys and girls. The boys are in the minority. Glenelle does al of her- own choreography, anc still finds time for advancec study in the field. "I'm still learning from she confides. "And I've got awful lot yet to learn too."

Dr. William district superintendent; recom- mended an annual suggested for future surveys the District formulate its-own "de- vices to measure teacher satis- faction." The teachers pointed to no particular problem, in their re- quest. One did say a "lack of written. policy" is troublesome'. Dr. Roller says the request .is because, teachers don't ''under- stand" administrative practices initiated this year and a gram for a new type of release- time (when teachers are freed from classes for other work) as- signment which will "free them for some real, refreshing teach- ing." The superintendent feels teach- ers will like what's-in.store for them when they understand what's ahead in new programs. CITY HALL BEAT One clue was all Officer Carl Pierce of Newark PD had to work with to L solve a burglary at-lhe Thomas Sales home, 5888 Biddle Street. One clue was all he "needed. Officer Pierce followed the trail of a blackened penny straight to two youthful burglars. They've confessed and now are wondering how it all happened from accommodations at 'Juven- ile Hall and Santa Rita. Almost all of the.loot, valued at approximately and in- cluding a revolver and holster, has been recovered. First census figures this week show there almost more Argus readers in Newark than anyone thought. Prelimin- ary returns peg Newark's popu- lation at on April 1. Fig- ure used prior to the nose count was a state estimate, made March 1, of 9150 people. Newark's first bowling alley is materializing on paper. Chief Building Inspector Doran Max- well got his first quick peek at plans for Lido Lanes this week. Construction is to begin very soon. Lido Lanes is to contain ap- proximately square feet. Facilities will include a restaur- ant, a bar, a nursery and a crib room. It is to be a concrete tilt-up and the builders Bev- ilaequa have arrived at a very clever idea for its evolution. They've poured a cement slab near the Newark Blvd., location of Lido Lanes, and are using it as. workspace for forming the tilt-up panels of the alley. When they've finished their bowling alley construction, why there's the floor, of their in-the-future skating rink ready and waiting. Nobody'told Newark's Senior Citizens .people usually stop growing when they earn a "sen- ior" rating. So Newark's Seniors didn't stop. They celebrated national Sen- ior Citizens' month last week by outgrowing their quarters at the Youth Center (and what were they doing and moving to the Community Center.
