Attorney General Bob Corbin said the meeting, set for Wednesday, was scheduled at the request of Mohave County Supervisor Dale D'Alessandro. D'Alessandro said he wants to determine whether taxpayer dollars are being wasted. He said some Colorado City residents may be abusing welfare and aid programs. The county official said he's interested in allegations that some children are forced into polygamous marriages and that the religious trust controlling much of the property of the community is bilking residents. Corbin said his office will conduct an investigation if he can be shown that statutes have been broken and that his office has jurisdiction. 5 returned to Mexico after desert trek YUMA Five Mexican men have been returned to their home country after a sun-parched ordeal in which they tried to cross 50 miles of desert with only 6 gallons of water, immigration agents say. One of the aliens was found by the Border Patrol on Wednesday, a day after agents found the other four. The men had left Los Vidrios, a pueblo about 80 miles east of San Luis, Sonora, with 6 gallons of water on May 29, John Elton, assistant chief agent for the Yuma sector, said Thursday. They were in search of farm work near Gila Bend, he said. After four days, one of the men walked about 25 miles to Red Mountain Farms in Dateland for help. A farm employee with an all-terrain cycle took some water to the other men before calling the Border Patrol. Three of the men were found in a canyon near the Mohawk Mountains, about 25 miles south of Interstate 8, Elton said. The fourth, who also had left in search of water, was found about eight miles away. Chiefs of juvenile institutions named State Corrections Department officials have announced the appoint ment of two superintendents for juvenile institutions. Tom Korff, 42, becomes superintendent of the Catalina Mountain Juvenile Institution in Tucson on July 6, and Ben Meyers, 57, will become head of the new Pinal Mountain Juvenile Institution in Globe on July 1. The Tucson institution is a 210-bed facility for males. The Globe institution is for first-time offenders and will function as a center for juveniles to work in conservation-related jobs toward their release. Star speaks at grandson's graduation TUCSON Actor Anthony Quinn told Tucson High School graduates Thursday night that he comes from a long line of dropouts and that seeing his grandson get his diploma was one of the great thrills of his life. "I have done the best I can in my time," Quinn said. His grandson, senior class President Wade Colwell, asked Quinn to speak when he found out that the scheduled speaker had canceled. Rangers to 'remodel' refuge for geese U.S. Forest Service officials say that when Canada geese return to Roosevelt Lake this fall, their home will have been "remodeled." Four thousand acres of the Roosevelt Lake Wildlife Management Area in the Tonto National Forest will be burned next week, officials said. Many geese fall prey to predators that lurk in the brush, they added. "The fire will also improve the winter food supply" with fresh grass, said Delbert Gricgo, who supervises the Tonto Basin Ranger district. 'Drowned man was beaten to death LAKE HAVASU CITY An autopsy shows a Tucson man believed to have drowned last month near Lake Ilavasu actually died of injuries received in a beating, officials said. Ernest Guzman, 22, was a resident of a Tucson foster home for developmentally disabled adults, Mohave County sheriffs deputies said. Guzman disappeared May 14 on an outing at Lake Havasu with other residents. His body was found in 12 feet of water about 10 miles south of Lake Havasu City. Deputy Bob Kuerner said the autopsy showed he died of beating injuries, sustained as much as three weeks before death. Kuerner said the office's investigation into the death is continuing. Tucson vies for presidential debate TUCSON Tucson is in the running as a host city for a presidential debate next year, according to a League of Women Voters official. Victoria Harian of Washington, the league's presidential-debates manager, was in town Thursday to give local facilities the once-over. Tucson is suitable for one of the debates, she said. Arrests of aliens drop along border TUCSON Apprehensions of illegal immigrants dropped 60 percent in southern Arizona last month, compared with May 1986, and immigration officials are giving new immigration policies as a likely reason. In May 1986, Border Patrol agents in the sector, covering southern Arizona except the Yuma area, arrested 8,133 illegal immigrants. Last month, with no change in patrol policies and an increase in Border Patrol workers, 3,222 illegal immigrants were arrested in the sector. Compiled from the Associated Press and United Press International. By ANNE Q. HOY Republic Washington Bureau WASHINGTON - Indians, the federal government and Arizona utilities agree that the Bureau of Indian Affairs should be required to sell its power-delivery system, which provides electricity to cen tral Arizona customers. The unanimity came during a hearing Thursday before the House Interior and Insular Affairs Committee on a bill that would require the BIA to sell the power-delivery system of the San Carlos Irrigation and Power Project in Coolidge. The committee is led by Rep. Morris Udall, D-Ariz. The project provides power to the Gila River and San Carlos Indian reservations as well as customers in Pima, Pinal and Gila counties. The district was formed in 1923 to provide electrical service in areas that the Arizona Public Service Co. did not serve, including rural stores, farms and businesses. The project, which is controlled by the BIA, has been plagued with power shortages, inadequate service and rising costs. "The Bureau of Indian Affairs does not possess the resources, the expertise or the incentive to manage this project in a manner that serves the interests of the Indian and non-Indian users," said Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Ariz. The bill would require the BIA to divest itself of the project. It has not been determined who would be permitted to buy the facility. Mark DeMichele, president of the Arizona Public Service Co., said that regardless of who purchased the facility, the more than 10,000 utility customers served by it would see "a significant rate increase" caused by the amount of money that would be required to upgrade the facility. But supporters of the bill, including Udall and Kolbe, said the improved service that would result from the sale would be worth the increased cost. No consumers testified. The selection of a purchaser also is likely to be widely debated. Cecil Antone, chairman of the Gila River Indian Community, proposed that the portion of the facility on his reservation near Phoenix be sold to the tribe. Buck Kitcheyan, chairman of the San Carlos Indian Tribe, said his tribe was short-changed by the BIA after it allowed the construction of Coolidge Dam on the Gila River to provide water and later power for the facility. Kitcheyan proposed that the San Carlos Tribe be the first to benefit from the revenues generated from the eventual sale of the facility as belated compensation to the tribe. The dam has not operated since the fall of 1983 because the BIA has allowed it to fall into disrepair and the power project has been required to purchase more-expensive power for its customers, according to testimony. The dam flooded part of the San Carlos Indian Reservation, but the tribe never was compensated as promised.
