ting off California you affect anyone living up there — you’re denying them access to town,” resident David Bishop argued.
‘‘But only on weekends. People living there don’t drive through the park on weekends now anyway, because of the crowds,” Simon replied.
An alternate route down the hill to Fredericksburg Road, by way of Kentucky Boulevard and Ohio Avenue, would only take an extra eight-tenths of a mile, Simon added.
“We all have to consider our primary objective, which is to protect the park. We’re all going to have to make some concessions,” board member Edward Dedeke said.
Badouh himself said the gate wouldn’t change his weekend driving habits.
“They don’t have to put a barrier up there for me. On certain weekends I know I have to go all the way around. I’m happy to, but some of my neighbors
aren’t. I’m just scared some kid will run through in front of my car,” Badouh observed.
Other residents continued to press for access through the park from the California side, and were joined by Eberhard and Rogers.
“My wife told me to keep my mouth shut,” Rogers joked. “A while ago we experimented with some park ideas and stirred up a number of citizens. I think that’s great.”
Rogers said the board should consider some “relief” to hill residents whose main route to town would be blocked.
Haas took the opposite view.
“I’m violently opposed to through traffic in the park. I don’t live on the hill; I live in the old part of town, on Napoleon Street.
“You can’t determine the hazard by driving through. You have to get out and walk. And walking is a gamble — the traffic comes down California Boulevard entirely too fast.
“I remember the park before it was public. It was much more beautiful. Of course, there weren’t as many people, and it was much easier to keep the park well-groomed. I don’t know if we’ll be able to go back to those days; I rather doubt it,” he said.
Haas said he liked the plan as it stood.
“I’m in favor of stopping traffic altogether, or at least doing something to reduce the traffic pattern. We’re sacrificing too much of the park for roadways,” Haas said.
Finally, Frazer suggested the California-to-Fredericksburg connection, and it met with no objections — just a caution that the proposed location just east of the California Boulevard bridge over the springs would endanger a large oak tree.
So, when the motion to accept the plan was made and approved unanimously, a recommendation that council build the road “in a way that wouldn’t interfere with that oak tree” was attached.
Soviet media attacks increase
MOSCOW (AF) — Soviet press attacks on Poland’s independent labor movement are getting harsher after months of official attempts to play down the unrest in the neighboring communist nation.
President lieonid I. Brezhnev expressed confidence Oct. JO, after a meeting with Stanislaw Kania, the new chief of the Polish Communist Party, that the Poles
would be able to solve their labor problems on their own, an official report said at the time.
But Soviet government sources admitted privately to Westerners that many Kremlin officials believe the Polish situation threatens the existence of the Soviet system in Eastern Europe.
