Members Wednesday unanimously approved a resolution, intro- duced in a meeting of representatives of the cities of Fremont, Newark and Union City, and of the three Chambers of Com- which calls for immedi- ate action to acquire the Brinker estate in the Livermore Valley for a regional park. The resolution urges Regional Park District directors to use "whatever means necessary" to effect the acquisiticji. Chamber president George Carlson says the phraseology means local res- idents want condemnation 'pro- ceedings instituted in order to get the 3000-acre ranch, located near Calaveras dam. The property is particularly desirable for park purpos.es, be- cause San Francisco Water De- partment, which owns surround- ing land, has expressed a will- ingness to lease it for park purposes, Carlson explained. Southern Alameda County res- idents are growing impatient, .the Chamber president said, be- cause they have been paying a five-cent tax for regional parks and there are still none.

Dearest Wish of A little handicapped boy who wants a puppy will give Newark nation-wide publicity next Tues- day, although he still doesn't have his puppy. Because her little son Jeff, 7, who was born with a birth de- fect, wanted a puppy, Mrs. Jack Dennis "wished" for a puppy when she sent for tickets for the "Queen for a Day" show at the Fox Theatre in San Francisco recently. Mrs. Dennis says she mailed her request, mostly "-just for a and without any real expectation of getting a ticket. When it arrived, she was de- lighted, and she made immedi- ate plans to attend. When Mrs. Dennis was asked Newark Wife to write a "wish" on her ticket stub, she "wished" for a. puppy for Jeff, who is now confined to a wheel chair as he recovers from the latest of a series of 12 operations.

While she wasn't top winner, she was one of the top four, and she came home with several new house appliances.

Consultants say Newark will need seven high schools, to house students, by 1967. How- ever the schools won't be built, until the need exists, so funds won't be borrowed, nor bonds won't be sold, until the money is needed for the next building project. A two-thirds majority of those voting is required for both meas- ures next Tuesday. Six District organizations, in- cluding Newark's Musick P-TA, have endorsed the bond and loan program, according to Clyde Voorhees, co-chairman of a citi- zens' committee working for ap- proval of the measures.
