Barbara Ethel Schillreff opened the wooden window blinds the morning of Dec. 8, 1941, and found herself staring at a machine gun. During the night, five soldiers had planted the gun in the yard of her family's ocean view home in La Jolla--aimed toward the sea, ready to fire on invaders. For Schillreff and thousands of San Diegans, the war transformed their lives and their city virtually overnight.

Los Angeles is the most popular destination for people relocating from San Francisco, and also ranks as the top city from which people are moving to the Bay Area, according to a study sponsored by Ryder Truck Rental. However, San Francisco is No. 1 in the battle for new residents between the Bay Area and Los Angeles. Thirty-one percent more people are moving to San Francisco from Los Angeles than from San Francisco to Los Angeles, the Ryder study showed.

If you love San Diego, Gary Beals wishes you'd keep it to yourself. "Complain. Kvetch. Bellyache," he advises. "When people call San Diego a Navy town, don't correct them. Let them think the place is fit only for beer-swilling, overweight chief petty officers." Don't misunderstand. Beals, who runs an advertising agency, has no plans to leave his hometown.

Orange County lost its ranking as California's second most populous county in 1985, falling 3,700 residents behind San Diego County's 2,131,600 residents, according to figures released Wednesday by state Finance Director Jesse R. Huff. California remained the nation's most populous state with 26.36 million residents, a 2.2% increase, or 570,000 people, over the previous year, the department said in a report covering the fiscal year that ended July 1, 1985.

When Donna Lawrence arrived here last month, she didn't bother marching off to the zoo, Sea World or any of the other local tourist haunts. No way. Lawrence wanted something more elemental, more quintessentially Californian. So she headed for Black's Beach. The 21-year-old North Carolina native has not been disappointed. Lawrence said she feels right at home whiling away sunny summer days at the legendary nude sunbathing spot tucked beneath the towering coastal cliffs north of La Jolla.

As San Diego continues to grow and become ever more urbanized, the need to preserve open space within the city becomes more imperative. A quality city includes areas for its residents to enjoy that are free of parking lots, offices, condominiums, hotels and other structures. Famosa Slough is one of those areas. We need to preserve our breathing spaces for today and the future. I am not a naturalist or bird watcher, but I greatly appreciate the Famosa Slough as a peaceful area after a good hectic day at work.

San Diego's population has exceeded 1 million. It is absurd that the City Council would seriously consider implementing a rule that targets only one, solitary citizen. A proposal limiting a person's appearances before the council to 100 times a year was clearly aimed at City Hall gadfly Rose Lynne, who frequently voices her opinions at council meetings--much too frequently to suit City Manager John Lockwood and certain council members. The rights of the citizenry to speak out at meetings of public officials are guaranteed by the Constitution.
