Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday Sept.mbtr 13, 1971 THE LETHMID9I HMALD 17 Living, working, playing and shopping in new southern California complex By ROBERT A. WRIGHT New York Times Service NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Tom Wolff works and plays and New- port Centre, a business com- plex situated on a bluff over- looking Hie Pacific where cat- tle once grazed. I His office is across the street from the first tee of the gol! course, and from there ho can see the ocean. His home is two blocks away. People like Thomas C. Wslff Jr. live in spacious to condominium town- houses lining the fairways of a country club. They can walk to one of Newport Centre's high- rise office buildings in about the time it takes to reach the average golfer's drive without an electric cart. Not all of I he centre's toilers are that fortunate. More typical is Claire Con- nell, vice president of the Avco Financial Services subsidiary of the Avco Corporation who must drive almost 10 minutes from his home to his office in the IG-story Avco Tower. From there he can keep an eye on his 37-foot yawl at its slip in Newport Harbor, clearly visi- ble from his office window. Acceptable applications of lots of money have long been on display in Newport Beach, where many residents like actor Jolm Wayne literally tie up their boats in the sea that borders their backyards. But now Newport Centre gives the working wealthy and the merely affluent a way of deal- ing with life's routines. The bulk of the people svbo work here, of course, cannot afford Newport Beach and must commute from other communi- ties in Orange County, driving an average ol about 15 min- utes. But this kind of working en- vironment can produce some very unbusiness-like ebullience not typical of rats in a race. "I sometimes wonder why I get blurted out an exe- cutive who moved here from the East so recently that he is still unreconstructed. Wallace 0. Laub, who runs Ms own advertising agency here, chortles: "I'm the only guy I know who lives on a golf course and works'in a high rise." He obviously has not met Wolff who frequently gels in a rouiu of golf with his wife before sup- ;nr. Newport Centre's towers re- flect the warm sun most day of the year. A salty onshor reeie conditions the smog-free air. Golf, tennis, sailing, fish- ng, horseback riding are al- ways in season and nearby. A. visitor wonders how any- xxly gets any work done. Per- haps it is the fear that they will be transferred to New York. But executives here say the en- vironment docs not detract from their efficiency. All of this, of course, was not envisioned by James Irvine who in 1864 founded his cattle ranch here, later adding two contin- gent Mexican ranches to ex- pand the property to acres. The property was formed into the Irvine Company by James Irvine Jr., in 1894, but remain- ed intact as a cattle and crop Better schools, better jobs concept challenged NEW YORK (AP) A Har-j vard University research team has challenged the widely-held concept that belter schools mean better jobs, in a report which asserts that luck and personally are, the major fac- tors leading to economic suc- cess. The three-year study finds that improved schooling, even if successful, would have "sur- prisingly little effect" on poor students' prospects for eco- nomic success as adults. The report, prepared by an eight-member team directed by Christopher Jencks of Harvard, says a better economic balance can only be achieved by United Stales government moves to put a floor and ceiling on indi- vidual incomes. Tho report, entitled In equality: A reassessment of the Effect of Family and Schooling in America, was based on an extensive, computerized rc- analysation of much of the data on family, school, jobs and in come gathered in the last dec- ade. The researchers attempted to establish correlations among all relevant -factors thought to influence job status and in- come, Jencks said. "All we are the re- port states, "is that giving chil- dren better schools is not going to eliminate poverty and eco- n o m i c inequaliy among adults." ranch for many years, even with the influx of World War II defence workers into the Los Angeles area. Roy Rogers in those years had a hit record in which he pined for the wide open spaces of San Fernando valley. That was an accurate description of the area then, but by the time of the Korean War the valley's ranches had been transformed into a criss- cross of freeways and single- family homes just feet apart as Los Angeles' largest bed- room community, In the late 1950's the com- pany hired the architectural firm of William L. Fereira and Associates to draw up a mas- er plan, the start of which is ow a new life style. Opened in 1967, Newport Cen- re is the downtown core of the rvine complex. The 18-story Union Bank Tower is the tallest of the eight buildings in the fi- nancial plaza, which houses mpre than 100 financial com- panies, including the home of- 'ice of the Pacific Mutual In- surance Company. The office buildings ring Fashion Island, a 76-acre shop- ping centre with four depart- ment stores and 60 specialty shops and restaurants compris- ing square feet of re- tail space and parking spaces.- There is a cinema, 17 tennis courts in the Balboa Bay Club, an athletic club and, of course, golf within the centre. Two buildings pro- vide square feet of space for medical services, the design plaza now under con- struction will house design companies in square feet of space, and the City of Newport Beach plans to build its civic centre here, including administrative offices, courts, library and museum. Pontiac battles Olds BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. CP) Pontlac, engaged In oily-contested battle with olher General Motors Division, Oldsmobile, for third In he auto sales race, showed oH a much-changed of 1S73 cars today. Pontiac General Manager F. J. McDonald said Pontiac held a lead over Olds through the first 11 months of the 1972 model year. Pontiac said Its 1972 model year sales would run about cars, giving it the third spot behind Chevrolet and Ford. It predicted sales would total in the 1973 model year. McDonald said the new Pon- tiae line has 33 models, two less than in '72. He said Pon- iac has achieved a break- hrough in designing and manu- acturing emission-controlled engines. He said new engine perform- ance has been gained because Ponliac "added cold-air in- duction, a new hot-air choke, new camshafts with revised timing, recirculation of exhaust gases and controlled spark ad- from the transmission." Pontiac said much of its em- phasis will be on the Inter- mediate field where it has a new entry, the Grand Am. The car, a sports luxury of- fering, is available in a twr> door hardtop with a 112-inch wheelbase and a four-door hardtop with a 116-inch wheel- base.
