Trustees used the survey as a basis for a discussion on possible regulations governing the com- munity use of school They made no firm decisions at the mooting, but will determine specific regulations at next Tues- day's board meeting. Most neighboring. districts charge a recreation tax, in order to recover costs of community use of school facilities in after- school hours, Mrs. Evelyn Kipp .reported.

First baby of the New Year for Newark (born at a local hos- pital) was -Frank Zepada, son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Zepada, 36563 Drive. He was born at pirn., on January 2. e h'e i x burices at birth.'He is the first cild for the Zepadas.

SIXTY A BUSINESS-SIZZLER FOR NEWARK POSTOFFICE Newark Postoffice are ready to paste up a gold star.on their calendars for the good business 1960 brought, but Postmaster Julia Harris confi- 'dently predicts 1961 will rate a double gold star for its increased postoffice business. Receipts for 1960 totalled Mrs. Harris says they'll go "at least to in 1961, and they could be even better." Receipts for last year were 42 percent better than the total for 1959. Letter cancellations moved into higher brackets last year, too, although the rate of increase was only 32 percent. The figure for 1959 was as compared to for 1960. There were 14 employes in Newark Postoffice in 1960, in addition to Mrs. Harris. That fig- ure will go up in '61, too, says the postmaster. More carriers will be added this year. The .biggest priority item on the postoffice '61 agenda, still not a reality but a healthy probability; is a move to new and larger quarters.

Lercara which estab- lishes the number of pickets which Local 5649, United Steel- workers of America, may place at the gates of the struck Titan Metal Manufacturing Company here. injunction prohibits vio- lence against Titan's employes, against anyone, doing business with Titan, against any Titan visitors, and bans interference with "merchandise, supplies, or other property in transit to or from the plant."

There can be no "congregation of other pickets within 50 feet of any entrances Or gates. CITY HALL BEAT They're running out of super- latives at.City Hall, when they try to. sum up what's happened in the past 'year, or predict what's ahead for Newark in 1961. For instance, there were 11 differ- ent types of recreational activi- ties directed by Newark Recrea- tion Department. L -Last year, "the total attendance was says Rec Director Mel Nunes. --on the coming spring budget, season; delved into costs figures .of the past five years, and found the per-uriit'cost-of recreational ac- tivities is down 66 percent over 1954. It means Newark is getting more fun for less pocketbook strain, Nunes clarifies. Also dealing in the "bigger, better, best" line of adjectives is Chief Building Inspector Do- ran Maxwell, who even under- estimated Newark's building valuation in 1960. Maxwell predicted a 000 total. Actual figures reached to Total construction valuation last year was 668. There were four million-dollar months in; Newark in 1960. Big- gest month of the year, building- wise, was March, when the total ran up to What's for '61 in Newark? Maxwell's not talking, except in terms of "bigger, better, best yet." He's promised a prediction in March, when the construction season swings into high gear again. GOING AWAY? A trip out of town on January 17, isn't a tailor-made excuse for not balloting on the Washing- ton Union High School District bond issue and loan authoriza- tion. An absentee ballot is avail- able upon request (mail it, phone it, or call !n person) from the office of Business Administrator Larry Sylva through January 12, Fourth Sheffield Heir A fourth son, Kirk, was born to Mr. and Mrs. Neil Sheffield of 5747 Parkside PL, Newark.

Cam- po Country Club sometime in the early morning hours of Jan- uary 3, reaped a haul in liquor, cash, a camera and a television, worth The robbery was discovered shortly before nine o'clock, and it apparently occurred sometime after two a.m., when the night janitor goes off duty. The intruders glas, on a rear door near.Vthe swim ming pool, reached through ant forced open the door of the secretary's fice, broke into a portable cash register, and then forced entry into the liquor storeroom, where they took an estimated worth of assorted liquors. Three-Part Agenda For Planners An election of officers, con- sideration of revocation of a use permit for Newark City Dump because of violations in opera- tional procedures; and issuance of a use permit for reconstruc- tion of Bill's Signal Service at Thornton Avenue and Sycamore Street, are the trio of items on Newark Planning Commission's agenda Tuesday. The meeting opens at 8 p.m., in Sycamore Hall. On The Run hadn't time to draw an breath Wednes- day, when the post holiday calm at. Newark Fire 'Station was ihattered two ''major fire calls within; six hours.. Most was the 'ire'which .'broke out in the yard Box on r Boulevard, destroying ap- proximately a quarter of -the_ corrugated waste, paper, raw material for the factory's paper mill, stored there, according to he estimate of L. J. Meunier, mill manager.... There was structural dam- age, other than 'charring of a ence at the mill. Newark's firemen .worked for ive hours to control the stub- )orn flames, which smoldered nside tightly stacked bales of paper. Plant employes worked around the clock, and were still.' dumping water on smouldering embers late yesterday. Newark's Fire Chief Joseph Pashote says his department was "very lucky" in their early arrival at the fire. Firemen were at the scene before the alarm sounded, and almost as soon as employes discovered the flames. The early report came from an observation tower South- ern Pacific, where a workman saw flames climbing high in the sky. Fourteen firemen fought the flames. Oner volunteer Rob- ert Malone, suffered an injury to his" hand .when he fell between paper bales. Meunier. estimates, .the plant but. says there will be no interriipation in the round-the-clock work day at the paper mill, since there is still adequate raw material on hand; Pashote's damage loss Is con- siderably lower, but is confined to actual destruction, which he pegs at That figure does not include clean-up'costs, labor, he points out. The other fire in Newark Wed- nesday, reported at 11 a.m., de- stroyed the upstairs of the home of Arnold Luthold, 6250 Robertson Avenue. Most of the roof'was burned and there was considerable water damage to. furniture, Pashote says. He es- timates the loss at struc- tural damage and to con- tents of the home. 'Defective wiring is believed the cause. COPS CREATE COLLECTION WOES FOR HOSPITAL DOCTORS SAY City police officers (Fremont and Newark) are creating bill collection problems for' Wash- ington Township Hospital, Dr. Walter J. Hartzell asserted at Wednesday's meeting of direc- tors. Dr. Hartzell says police of- ficers advise accident victims to report to the hospital emergency service for treatment, rather than referring them to a family doctor. Dr. Merle Buehler and Dr. Robert B. Fisher, the .latter chief of staff .at the Township hospital, agreed with Dr. Hart- zell's statement. Dr. Fisher explained many accident victims are not true emergency cases, but, are suf- fering only from minor injuries which can be treated by a per- sonal physician. The discussion was touched off by the request, of Adminis- trator William Waddill, seeking permission to .write off bad bills. Waddill explained 13 of the 19 accounts were for emergency treatments. Directors expressed concern over the mounting total of Waddill said that total still is less than "one-six- teenth of one percent.'> Dr. Buehler suggested doctors might do more to investigate fi- nancial background of patients, checking insurance coverage before referring "them for hos- pitalization. Dr. Fisher demurred. "Doc- tors can't be spending 'their time worrying about an emer- gency patient's finances, before beginning medical he declared. "We're here to treat him, not-' to worry about his ability to pay." ;
