CITY B-2 Thurs., Apr. 20, '78 O The Arizona Republic Dem to run for Corporation Commission the Miter side TUCSON-Democrat Tom Patten, 36, is scheduled to announce his candidacy today for Republican Ernest Garfield's sea,t on the Arizona Corporation Commission. . Patten will not accept any campaign contributions torn representatives of public service corporations regulated by the commission, according to his campaign aides. Patten, a graduate of Salpointe High School and the University of Arizona, has been in the graphics business in Tucson and Phoenix for 10 years. He will serve notice of utilities that he opposes any further rate increases for them until they show they are operating at maximum efficiency, his campaign aides said. They said he is running for the three-member commission because he believes that utility rates are rapidly becoming unaffordable and already have reached that point for the elderly and fixed-income families faced with utility bills as big as their mort-gage payments. Patten's election would transfer majority control of the commission from Republican to Democratic hands. Patten served with the Marine .Corps and various Arizona law enforcement agencies. He also was on the Washington staff of the late Sen. Carl Hayden, D-Ariz., and served as chief clerk of the Senate rules committee. After Hayden's retirement, Patten was elected executive director of the Arizona Democratic Party.

The audit refers to employees by name and therefore is a personnel matter, Goodman said, adding that the board might agree to release the financial details in an edited summary. "The board would go through there and edit out what we don't want you to see," he said. Barth Weistart, the certified public accountant who conducted the audit, would not discuss his findings without the board's permission.

An audit of Shadow Mountain's student activity funds, . ordered by the school board last month, has been completed but Goodman would not release the results. Goodman at first described the audit as a routine checkup but then said, "We suspected there might be some problems.". He would not say what problems were suspected or what the audit dis Continued from Page B-l said, "Frankly, it seemed that 'if in fact he (Ryan) had done what was alleged the investigation seemed to imply that he had what'd he's done 'simply didn't seem to merit federal prosecution. "It looked to me like we might be getting in the middle of a domestic situation." Scales said the situation apparently was clouded by an office romance. Jim Talbott, assistant superintendent for business services, said the district Sex-case evidence revieived The Arizona Supreme Court took under advisement Wednesday a petition that would allow the state attorney general's office to use evidence linking accused murderer Jonathan Charles Tread-away with another sex assault. The high court delayed Treadaway's murder trial until it has reached a decision on the matter. Treadaway, 2 4 , was scheduled to stand trial last week in Maricopa County Superior Court ior the 1974 sex slaying of six-year-old Brett Jordan. Treadaway was found guilty of first-degree murder two years ago, but the' state Supreme Court overturned the conviction last July and ordered a new trial. Treadaway had been sentenced to die in the gas chamber. . The attorney general's office filed a petition for special action last week in the Supreme Court after Superior Court Judge Robert J. Corcoran i ruled that evidence the I state considers vital to its prosecution could not ' be introduced at the new trial. Assistant Attorney General Stan Patchell accused1 Corcoran of "abusing his discretion" in a hearing Wednesday before the high court. Patchell said the evidence Corcoran banned "amounts to at least two - thirds of the state's case." Patchell said the evidence includes a police report that indicates Treadaway may have molested a nine - year -old boy three months before the Jordan killing. According to a scientific analysis, public hairs found in the boy's clothing match hairs taken from Treadaway's body. fined to the Grand Canyon, Alamo jLake State Park and other Arizona locales.

Susan is a pet of Nellie Can-trell of Fresno, Calif., and had disappeared from nearby Madera while Mrs. Cantrell was visiting there.

Among participants in the two days of meetings was Forrest Gerard, assistant secretary of the interior for Indian affairs. Others were A. J. "Jack" Pfister, general manager of the SRP; Wesley E. Steiner, state water engineer and executive director of the Arizona Water Commission, and attorney Bill Stephens, representing municipalities that might be affected by the negotiations. The negotiations were initiated by the Interior Department and future meetings are expected to take place in Phoenix. Krulitz said the meetings the past two days produced an agreement on the terms and conditions by which the future negotiations will take place. Continued from Page B-l on the case of Winters vs. the United States in 1908. This case established the principle that when the United States created an Indian reservation on land adjoining or including a river, the government reserved enough water to meet the needs of the reservation in future years. ; The Indians date their claims back to the creation of the reservations, though in some instances they assert their water rights from time immemorial. ,'Some of the Apache reservations were created in the early 1870s, though the Fort McDowell reservation wasn't created until 1903 and 1904. The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Reservation was created in January 1879, but its size was reduced substan- cluding: incriminating statements Treadaway made before his arrest; statements he made after the arrest; testimony he gave at the first trial and a letter to his parents in which he admits that he's a homosexual.

Flynn indicated he had evidence that Jordan died from pneumonia and wai not suffocated as the prosecution maintains.
