Killed was North Island Naval Air Station pilot Lt Cmdr, Edward A. Morse, 33, of 763 Monserate Ave., Chula Vista. Attached to Carrier Early Warning Squadron 11, he was making practice mirror landing approaches at the facility in propeller-driven aircraft.

Morse, from Hartford, Conn., was on a training mission, prerequisite to actual aircraft carrier landings. Morse is survived by his widow, Ann, and four children. u a w fa- rt .J n i 1 EDWARD A.

The $1 million South Bay General Hospital, built in 1959-60 by former owners but never opened because of lack of funds, was notified Tuesday that had passed inspection, according to administrator mer Sorensen, one-time local public relations man who heads up the new management.

The 20,000-square-foot, 54-bed plant, was bought this fall for an estimated $950,000 by Chula Vista Medical Properties Ltd. from a local sav. ings and loan group who took over the plant when the original builders defaulted. Until the state grants a license, the hospital cannot take patients. Sorensen said that he was quite confident that the license would come through this week. The.

Chula Vista City Attorney James Duberg this week was directed to draw up an ordi nance to regulate ambulance services within the city y which would also bring halt one service's monopoly answering police emergency calls. At the same time the coun cil voted unanimously to drop , ... . . , . ., , .... n the $3.50 subsidy for each pJpW Vlsta. sald that the last f e $200,000 equip lice department call responded to by the Bay Cities Ambulance Co. : BAY CITIES has a contract with the city to answer calls from the police department. It operates three ambulances at 567 H St, and has others in the San Diego area- Steve Ballard, operator of Bay Cities, told the council he had no objections to cancellation of the subsidy but said he was concerned over who would pay when he had to transport "alcoholics or psy chos" to County Hospital where facilities were available for their treatment. "I'm perfectly willing to take anyone to the Chula Vis ta hospitals regardless of his ability to pay," Ballard said, 'but those longer trips are ex pensive and I'd like to know what arrangements can be made for them." THE COUNCIL indicated that this could be settled, ei ther in the ordinance or by written agreement. Ballard said about 40 per cent of his calls are "uncollectables," in which the patient is unable to pay the ambulance fee or re-, fuses to do so. Passage of the proposed or dinance would also open the way for all city-licensed ambulance services to answer police emergency calls. City Administrator Fred Ross told the council that 312 pol ice calls were answered by Bay Cities or its standby company, Acme Ambulance, in the first 11 months of 1963, The city paid $1,092 in sub sidies for the calls. The standby ambulance ser vice is called in when all available vehicles of the contract company are in operation. BALLARD SAID he has just purchased two new ambulances at a cost of more than $33, 000 and Chula Vista now has as good an ambulance service as can be found on the Wes,t Seven Still in Race For Grand Jury Posts (County News Service) A record number of South Bay; residents seven were chosen yesterday in the semi-final drawing of prospective county grand jurors, The names were drawn in presiding Superior Court from a list of 103 originally submitted.

Lancer Injured As Scooter Is Hit by Auto Ray Timberlake Anderson, 16, of 850 Halecrest Dr., Chu la Vista, a Hilltop High School junior, was treated this week at Chula Vista Hospital for head and leg injuries when he was thrown over the handle' bars of his scooter and into the windshield of the car which hit him.

She said she didn't see the boy on the motor scooter. CV A4 Sun Was NO 7 The sun was blamed this week for a Chula Vista colli sion, but a motorist was cited just the same. Daniel Bruce Peterson, 19, of 2015 F Ave., National City, a pipe fitter, was driving southbound on Broadway and failed to stop for the red traf fic signal at K street because; he said, the sun was in his eyes, and he didn't see it. Peterson collided with Jos eph Ira Passerino, 44, of 981 W. Bay Blvd., Chula Vista, a machinist, who had entered the intersection on the green light. Irving Bailey, 45, of 2839 Grove St., National City, a passenger in Passeriho's car, was treated by a private doc tor for an Injury to his right side. .

Parks and recreations director William Jasinek had ob jected to locating the building on the original 20 acres in tne Greg Rogers area but the city has since acquired another 20 acres there and the matter of leasing part of the new prop erty to the Y was referred to Jasinek. In the meantime the council directed City Administrat- or rea koss io coniaci ine county, which owns the site where the school building is located, and try to make arrangements to leave the building where itis until a final decision is reached. QUINN HAD reported that Crawford's only ambulance was a converted 1958 p8nel truck, modified for ambulance use.. Crawford said, "No ambulance on the road is built from the ground up to be an am bulance. Thry are all modi fied from truck or limousine chassis by special ambulance conversion firms." . He said his vehicle has al ways been operated as an am bulance and has approval of the California Hichway Pa trol, It was approved by the city when he was issued his license to operate here and is the same type vehicle used by the county and the San Diego Police Dept. he said. CRAWFORD IS a former manager of Acme Ambulance, He said he is negotiating for two or three more ambulances of the same general type he now operates. "I won't be able to offer Cadillacs as Mr.. Ballard does, but I'll guarantee good service," Crawford said. Pendine aooroval of the or dinance, Bay CitidW will still continue to hold its monopoly on the police call list. fTn.
