Comics Sports Theaters TV-Radio Crossiiord The Arizona Republic Conference to Consider Consumers' Questions Monday, August 22, 1966 H Page 2 Law Instructor Now Ready For Question of Experience medical care has some peculiar relationship to the amount of insurance you carry? Or why medical costs went up when Medicare was introduced? "Why is the cost of financing a car or appliance never stated in clear and simple terms'? A $500 second hand car can cost as much as $1,200 when all credit and interest charges are added. "WHY IS Arizona bereft of laws favoring the consumer'.' "Why is there no meal inspection law in Arizona? There's no guarantee of the quality or safety of any meat raised, processed and sold within the state." THE QUESTION. "Have you ever been gypped?" will set the stage for a conference next month of the newly formed Arizona Consumers Council. The conference, which will include a talk by Mrs, Esther Peterson, President Johnson's special assistant for consumer affairs, is scheduled Sept. 28 at the Ramada Inn, 3801 E. Van Buren. "SEVERAL OTHER provocative questions," said council president John Haynes of Phoenix, "will form the basis of conference workshops." Among the inquiries, Haynes said, are: "Have you ever wondered whv the cost of -"Why do homeowners bear the brunt of state t;ix needs? And why do most other groups tend to receive lower tax assessments? ' Why is there such a galaxy of package sizes greeting you on the supermarket shelf, making it almost impossible to tell which one is the best buy?" Workshops, said Haynes, will be led by J'lhn Rickel, manager of the Arizona Credit Union League; Lauro Garcia, of the Guadalupe Organization; Peter Starrett, executive assistant to Gov. Goddard, and Dr. Michael A. Plesher, a special consultant to Operation LEAP. Miner Killed by Ore Fall By HOWARD BOICE STEVEN Duke heads back to the academe today, armed with the handy retort he came here to get. "No longer will I have to say 'none' when they ask me how much trial experience I've had," Duke said as he prepared to leave the Maricopa County public defender's office after 10 weeks. Duke is the youngest full professor on the Yale law school faculty. He returned to Arizona this summer to gain trial experience, which he believes will help him as a teacher of criminal evidence and procedure. OF THE four trials he handled here, the professor lost only one. He won his last and most important victory when a jury last Thursday found Mario Joe Contreras, 17, innocent of the fatal stabbing of Gilbert Gallegos. Is he interested in giving up teaching and going into private practice? "I've given it some thought," he answered. "But I'll probably stay in the academe where I have more time to study legal problems." DUKE WAS born in Mesa, attended high school in Yuma, did undergraduate work at Arizona State University, received his law degree from the University of Arizona in 1959 and spent a year at graduate study at Yale before joining the faculty. He and his wife Janet have four children, 9, 5, 4, and 2. After he was graduated from the UofA, he worked for a vear as clerk to U.S. Su- Republic Photo by Larry Repp IT'S LIKE THIS Prof. Steven Duke discusses teaching criminal law as he winds up a 10-week stint of duty in the Maricopa County public defender's office.

His experience with Justice Douglas gave him "a fairly unique understanding of the Supreme Court and the direction it's going," the professor said. "I saw more than 2,- New Training Schedule Set for Phoenix Police 000 criminal appeals while 1 was there." THE SO-CALLED "liberal" lack of the high court is good, Duke firmly believes. "The Supreme Court will force the states to re-examine their obsolete criminal procedures," he stated. "They will have to take another look at the prisons and make them do the job they're supposed to do: rehabilitate." The landmark Miranda decision, which requires police to carefully spell out a suspect's rights before interrogation, will result in more scientific investigation, he contended, "which in the long run will mean better prosecution." He predicted that in light of recent Supreme Court decisions, every large city in the country will eventually need a public defender's office. AND A public defender's office can become expert in criminal law as it gains experience. A guy in private practice who handles one or two criminal cases a year doesn't know criminal law," Duke asserted. And a lawyer with a lot of (rial experience doesn't necessarily make a good teacher, he contended: "Private practice ruins more teachers than it helps." experience" for the 16 students who have worked on the survey over each of the past two summers in the field, and put in additional weeks on the office work involved. "They'd had all the courses, in forest mensuration, map-making, photo interpretation and the like, and suddenly they had to use them on a very practical forestry problem." Minor said. After a preliminary study, Minor and Thompson defined private forest land for the inventory as any properly containing more than 40 acres and including at least 10 acres of sawtimber. Lesser stands, they concluded, would not be Sprinkler Installers Face Test By CLARENCE W. BAILEY ALTHOUGH every lawn in the Valley is well soaked by recent rains, the Phoenix City Council tonight will wrestle with the problem of lawn sprinklers and who is eligible to install them. Licensed plumbers are objecting to a proposal by the city's plumbing inspection department that employes of lawn sprinkler firms be permitted to make the final connection to the City of Phoenix potable water system. The city's proposal follows approval two weeks ago by the Arizona registrar of contractors of a regulation permitting lawn sprinkler company employes to do the work. The state will require them to pass a qualifying examination. Mike J. Sienerth, superintendent of building inspections, said, "We are trying (o keep in line with the registrar of of contractors, so we propose to register these lawn sprinkler contractors so they can work in the City of Phoenix. "Normally, they would require a plumbing contractor to make the final connection to the potable water supply. 'UNDER THE new regula tions we hope the City Council will approve, they will not have to be a full plumber, but will have to take an examination prepared by the building inspection division, to prove they are qualified to make that final connection," Sienerth said. The lawn sprinkler amend ment, which comes up for discussion at 7:30 p.m. before the councils informal session, is the same kind of amendment to .the city's plumbing code that was approved by the council for jwater conditioning contractors in late June. "This will give the city a chance to inspect the lawn sprinkler system to make sure it has a backflow prevention device to avoid contamination of the entire City of Phoenix-water system." Sienerth explained. The new proposal, which received the recommendation of the Phoenix Plumbing Advisory Board a month ago, is expected to come up for formal council action soon, by as early as Aug. 30. i Sienerth said if the council! as eany as aepi. n. ; Licensed plumbers in the city are eXpected to appear before the council tonight to protest the amendment.

The inventory was begun in June 1965. It was undertaken by the NAU foresters at the request of the State Division of Appraisal and Assessment Standards, which is winding up the massive task of revaluing all taxable property in the stale. "Standing timber" is one of the 26 property classifications sel up by the legislature for the revaluation. THE TIMBER inventory is being directed by Dr. Charles O. Minor, dean of the school at NAU. and a veteran forester and educator. He is being assisted by Dr. William O. Thompson of NAU's forestry faculty. Most of the field work is being done by upper division and graduate forestry students. "We were asked to do the job because, as the only forestry school in the entire Southwest, we were the logical ones to do it." Minor explained. "At that time, of course, there was no state forester or state forestry office." Minor estimates that the inventory will record approximately 151 000 acres of salable, privately owned timber in seven of the state's 14 counties. This, he said, is roughly three times the a-mount that has been on the assessment books in recent years. It is still, however, a very small fraction of the state's over-all timber resources, which are mostly on (he 11.365,246 acres of seven national forests. Almost 100.000 acres of the new total are in Coconino County, with Navajo next uith 28.000 acres. Yavapai has an estimated 7.300 acres of private timber. Apache 6.817. Gila 4.000. Greenlee 1.156 and Mohave 5.000. There is no marketable timber in private hands in Maricopa or in the southern counties of the state. MOST OF the stands in the inventory are small, scattered and isolated. Student foresters have "cruised" each stand to determine its extent, density, quality of timber and other factors, such as the nature of the terrain, accessibility and special, localized circumstances. This. Minor pointed out. ha? provided "a great educational 16 HE CUTS? ' ,TELL HiM WUfi VERV GCCD FR.EMD, 'PEPFcRWNT'fSTTVgA'HELLO" T one of die highlights of the 14th mmediatelv.
