Valentine-Carver school boundary change has not had time to reach a final conclusion, according to William Ungles, a member of the committee who acted as spokesman at the board meeting Tuesday night. Ungles gave the board and the audience of about 25 interested parents an overview of the committee's work thus far. He said some of the things the committee wants to check before submitting any filial report are the traffic volume on Sierra Madre avenue north of Huntington, the volume on San Criminal Activity Slows Up April was a relatively quiet month on the San Marino crime GOP Women Will Hear Candidates "Meet the Republican candidates" and be informed before casting your vote on June 2.

Discussion Byers added that a thorough discussion of the issues with Rousselot had convinced him that the candidate's affiliation with the John Birch Society will in no way impair his ability to represent the district in Washington. Meanwhile, former candidate Ed Essertier, who this week resigned the editorship of the Pasadena Star-News to take a job as Director of Information in the Department of the Interior, threw his support to Patrick Hillings. Essertier stated, crosswalks and sidewalks, and. the operations of crossing guards. 'Startled' Ungles said he had "startled" City Manager Richard Malcolm with t$jlk that the city might have to come through with improved safety facilities in the area under study. But, he added, he is confident that the City Council will vote the funds for whatever improvements which might be necessary.

The guesstimation on county population released this week by the County Regional Planning Commission came as quite a shock to San Mar-inans. Our total rose by three souls during the past six months and that was some feat, believe us. Currently we have a population of 14,079 up from 14,076. True, the maternity wards of the neighborhood hospitals have not been checked recently, but we'll accept the figure as released as a fair and unbiased report of San Marino's growth. And it was some growth when you consider that this same county report showed Sierra Madre, South El Monte, Bradbury, Duarte and even Monrovia with no increase at all. Wonder what happened and where they came from. E. Bruington was in charge of installation of project No. 1117. One line of the two-pronged project begins near the intersection of Euston and Wembley roads and runs west in Euston to Hampton road. The other starts near the Kensington-Euston roads' intersection and extends east in Euston to Hampton road. The two lines converge at Hampton, Dorn said, and a single segment runs south in Hampton to Monterey road, west in Monterey to Kensington road, south in Kensington to Huntington drive, south in rights of way to Alhambra road and south in Alhambra to an outlet at Alhambra Wash near Roses road. Funding was included in the $275 million storm drain bond issue approved by County voters in 1964, Dorn added. end of the school year, being available for consultation with the youngsters or merely to answer questions about law enforcement and what it's like to be a police officer. 'Reaction' "Most of the programs of this type which we know about have been a reaction to an already existing problem," Yeske said Tuesday. "But we're initiating a program so we won't have to react to a problem later. I fully expect these kids to teach me a lot, and I hope to do the same for them." Yeske, who characterized the program as a chance for a down-to-earth "rap session" (conversation) with the students, said he hoped the officers could build a better understanding of the needs and desires of the youngsters balanced against the actions which MUSIC MAN SWINGS into its final two performances Friday tfnd Saturday nights at the high school. / Picture shows rehearsal of one of many colorful and lively scenes from the popular musical.

Listed in satisfactory condition with multiple injuries at La Puente Community Hospital was Gregory Miller of 1769 Pasa Real, Rowland Heights. A California Highway Patrol officer said Miller had Just passed another vehicle when he swerved sharply to his right, running off the road and on to a soft shoulder. In his haste to return to the road, Miller apparently turned the wheel sharply to the left, jack-knifing the car over the center line and into the front-left of Burks' vehicle. Alarmed Burks had left his home at 18987 Adney St., Rowland Heights, before noon Sunday. When he had not returned by 5 p.m., his alarmed wife, Lucille, called the highway patrol and discovered the tragedy. Her husband had been declared dead at La Puente Community Hospital at 1:50 p.m. Funeral services were held yesterday in Memorial Chapel of Rose Hills Memorial Park, Whittier. The popular administrator is survived by his wife; two sons, Jonathan, 21, and Jeffrey, 17; two daughters, Kelley, 10, and Mrs. Maureen Scott, 18; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ivyl Burks of Bass Lake, California, and by one grandchild. Burks came to the San Marino Unified School District In July of 1968. He had been Assistant Business Manager In the Rowland School District and' had held other administrative jobs in school districts and In private industry. He was selected for the San Marino Job from a sizable group of applicants, according to Superintendent of Schools Walter Dingus. Shaken The superintendent, who had just attended a conference of school trustees, administrators and supervisors Saturday with Burks and San Marino trustee Kathleen Crow, appeared particularly shaken at the news he received Sunday night. "The untimely death of Mr. Burks is a severe loss to the San Marino schools," he told the Tribune. "In his brief two years of service, he had earned the confidence of his staff and the admiration of his fellow workers. His knowledge of budget procedures, ability to handle personnel, keen interest in young people and contagious sense of humor were attributes which will be sorely missed. "In behalf of all the staff and his tnany school friends, I wish to express our deepest sympathy to his immediate family and relatives." The Board of Education expressed condolences to the family at Tuesday's regular meeting, president Sherm Tel-leen asking for a moment of silence in memory of the victim. Telleen said, "I should like to note that Jim Burks was an especial kind of employee. He was one of those few that you'd periodically wonder how the devil you'd ever replace if you lost him. Dedicated' "He was a dedicated and tireless worker. He accepted many new tasks with enthusiasm, performed them well, and earned the affection of all of us with ' wljom he dealt. We shall all miss Jim very much." Mrs. Crow invited the audience to send letters of sympathy to Mrs. Burks, and added sincerely, "He really was a fine, fine man." The tragedy places a par ticular burden on the administration at this time because Burks was engaged in sensitive negotiations with teachers on salary and fringe benefits as the (fistrict's representative to the certificated and classified salary negotiating committees. He had just received the teachers' proposals last Thursday and was in the process of making a report to the board which would have taken place last night Dingus told the board that he had received several offers from nearby school districts for loan of the services of their business managers to see San Marino through the crisis.
