California Tik a slav. Mar. 1.?. 15 17 vol. Xxx is Sanita Sage Winier racing season broke crowd record annexation a lot of Folk around town Are getting All worked up Over the proposed annexation of the county area just West of the City limits West Arcadia. Seems that a big development program is under Way Down there and the talk of annexation is going up and Down Baldwin Avenue and has been presented to the City Hall. Folks can t understand what a holding it Back. Seems like a Good idea but done to move fast enough. The whole affair looks like a Small boy who is being offered a piece of cake and done to take it because a hunk of the frosting is broken off. Better take tin cake and forget frosting party they had been to a party and it was u whoopee Roo. A few Days later the Little woman got Over it Anc began hammering away at her husband after picking up remarks about what he did at the party that lie should not have done. A a you Are a Fine one a she shouted. A my my what a fool you made cd yourself Why mrs. Jones tells me you got their wheelbarrow out of the garage and wheeled it up and Down the Street. That s what she funny thing i did t notice that. I wonder Why Quot who do you think was in the wheel Barrow a he said. Civic Center you can Start crossing your fingers. Looks like the armory committee is making headway and along with it will be settled for once and for All the site of the civic Center. The committee have been making Progress and the meeting tomorrow night of Al Perkins and his armory committee it the City Hall May Start the Bull rolling in the right direction. Highway 66�?the chamber of Commerce have started something that May develop into a Fine thing for this City the sponsoring of a Highway 66 association for California. Bill Libby recently attended a meeting of the group at Winslow ariz., and has been asked to help in the formation of a chapter of the Highway 66 association in California. Since this is the terminus of the Highway it splits at the lace track the group should Start from Here. With the right kind of cooperation from Monrovia and other cities along the much travelled Highway from Here to the state Border it should do much to publicize and advertise this City. This kind of civic work is much better for a chamber of Commerce than some projects other Chambers along the line have been involved in of late. Like getting out letters taking a whack at the state Border inspection. Another chamber along the Highway suggests a pamphlet to be Given All Drivers entering the state to explain our traffic Laws. These projects Are really Highway 66 association activities and not chamber of Commerce activities. The local chamber will get a lot of credit and be doing a swell thing if they sponsor this association and draw All cities along the route into a closer group.

As we see it. There Are today two main Barri test it it was transportation in Arcadia one of which the Park and race track Block of land is probably impossible to do anything about i he other the Santa be track can be solved. W e know of no other Community anywhere which allows a Railroad to bisect it across the Middle without making adequate arrangements for Crossings for almost two Miles of its length people living in South and West Arcadia in St Ither go a the Way to Rosemead Boulevard or Back to Santa Anita a tenth in order to get to the Northern part of the City or to Sierra Madre. I his is an intolerable situation and one that must by changed. However be i Ore that need be Don adequate highways must be built up to the Point or Points of crossing. Most important of these is tile Baldwin Avenue crossing. Baldy a ii. Avenue must be extended North from Huntington drive to it Colorado just As soon As possible. Nothing must be allowed to interfere with this program. The eminent development of the Baldwin ranch property into an arboretum May easily present an Opportunity to arrange for the construction of this Street along the Eastern limits of the arboretum property and the City should As soon As possible secure for Street purposes the length of Road now running North from Huntington to the ranch property. The other serious situation about to develop in arcadians transportation problem is the construction of the drainage trough running North and South from Huntington drive to the san Gabriel River Between Santa Anita and Al Monte. As the situation now stands the army s plans Call for construction of an open Cement ditch 50 feet wide with no Bridges Between Duarte Road and Las Tunas. This must not to it Quot to happen.
