CITY 4 The Arizona Republic O Phoenix, Tuec, June 30, 1964 Steiger Challenges Senner to Debate By WADE CAVANAUGH Eastern Arizona Bureau Rep. George F. Senner Jr., Third District incumbent, has been challenged to defend his past political performance in debate by State Sen. Sam Steiger, R-Yavapai, a candidate for the congres sional seat. Steiger issued the challenge after a political speech to Mexican-American gathering in; 1 0 fj a Miami. He said he preferred to debate Senner in Miami and expressed doubt the incumbent congressman would accept. SAID SENNER in Phoenix yesterday: "I am going to debate Mr. Steiger on his home grounds July 17 at the Rotary Club in Prescott, and that will probably be the last time I will appear on the same platform with him to draw a crowd for him." Steiger, in his Miami speech and in a subsequent interview, made two major accusations against Senner: 1. That "During his term as Gila County attorney in the mid ile of 1950s, prostitution and Gambling flourished and it wasn't until his appointment to t h e Corporation Commission that Gila County was able to eliminate these commercial aspects of sin." 2. THAT Senner used the office of corporation commission er unethically to further his 1962 campaign for Congress Steiger referred to a letter confining tickets to a campaign hind barbecue sent by Senner to firms doing business with the Corporation Commission and re minding recipients that he would still be on that commis sion if he failed to get elected to Congress. "He readily admitted this while under oath before the Arizona Senate in the impeachment trial of Eddie Williams," ; Steiger asserted. In reply, Senner declared, "If Mr. Steiger will check the court records, he will find my name as county attorney or the name of my assistant on papers clos ing every house of ill fame in Gila County prior to my leaving that office. I believe it was the first time in the history of Gila County this had happened." AS FOR HIS letter with the barbecue tickets, Senner said he thought it was "a pretty good idea," and he plans to send another like it this year. Senner yesterday filed his petitions to seek the Democratic nomination to succeed himself and said he planned to return to Washington today. Marvin Linner Takes Supreme Court Position V - ? -7' f " Republic Photo NEW COURT AIDE Marvin Linner, right, who yesterday was appointed Supreme Court administrator, receives congratulations from Chief Justice Jesse Udall and Justice Lorna Lockwood. Linner replaces Al Feinstein, who has retired. Linner, an attorney, lives in Tucson. Marvin Linner, Tucson attorney, yesterday was appointed Arizona Supreme Court Administrator replacing Allen Feinstein, who has returned to private law practice. A native of Galesburg, 111.. Linner was admitted to practice in Arizona in 1954. He was graduated from the University of Arizona Law School that year. From November 1954 until January 1960 he served as a corporate attorney for Hughes Aircraft Co. in Tucson, and since that time has been in private law practice there. Chief Justice Jesse A. Udall, who announced Linner's appoint ment, praised Feinstein's "ex ceptional performance as the state's first Supreme Court ad ministrator. Feinstein took the post in June 1961. 'In addition to all of his oth er achievements he has had ex ceptional success in helping to raise the standards of the state's justice of the peace of the peace courts," Judge Udall said of Feinstein.

"I would like to thank my many loyal friends who expressed their enthusiasm and support," Hunt said. "However, it is too late at this time to organize a campaign, and I do not have the time or money that would be necessary to catch up." Hunt said he was amazed to learn that most candidates consider a reasonable cost for a campaign in excess of $100,000. He indicated he might be in terested in seeking the governorship some other time, but said he would not consider spending that much money. ' Hunt, a former baseball teammate of Gov. Fannin, skyrocketed into politics in 1940 when he won election as state treasurer. Because of a constitutional prohibition against seeking re-election as treasurer, he ran for the State Tax Com mission in 1942 and was elected. Court Given Assault Case James E. Johnson, 32, charged with second-degree rape involving a 6-year-old Glendale girl, was bound over to Superior Court yesterday by Justice of the Peace Vern Sessions of Tol leson. Judge Sessions, substituting for Justice of the Peace Al J Flood, who disqualified himself. made the ruling to conclude a hearing which started Friday He resigned as tax commissioner in 1951 to go into the restaurant business. He now operates restaurants in Scotts dale. Yuma, and La Jolla, Calif. Motions by the defense that the complaint be dismissed and that the child's testimony stricken were overruled. No witnesses were called by the defense. Called by the state yesterday were Jack Roher, 2218 W. Wel-don, a plumber, and Detective Sgt. Virgil, R. Glidden of the Glendale Police Department, who made the arrest. Koher identified Johnson as the man he saw with a little girl June 12 in a dwelling under con struction. Johnson, of 1742 E.

"He honestly has not made a decision," replied an associate of Church who was reported to be conferring with clients and unable to comment for himself.' State Rep. John Vanlanding-ham, D-Maricopa, an announced candidate for attorney general, told The Republic he was surprised to find Church nominating petitions in circulation. "He told me quite awhile ago he would not run this year," said Vanlandingham. Robert Pickrell, Republican incumbent, is not a candidate for re-election this year.
