Meeting at University Tuesday, June 24, 1969 Reno Evening (' c-o Fortas Controversy Considered by Judges The recent controversy concerning Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas is currently being considered by a group of 150 judges meeting in Reno his week. The judges are members of the National College of State Trial Judges, holding its annual four week summer session at the University of Nevada. "The purpose of the session is for judges from all over the country to exchange views on current problems," Judge Lau-rance Hyde, Dean of the College, said. "Judges all share similar problems, and here they Owens Lake Has More Water Than Los Angeles Reservoir Special to the Gazette BISHOP, Calif. Owens Lake, which went dry in the 1920's after the City of Los Angeles tapped its main source, now has more water than the main Los Angeles reservoir, Crowley Lake. That reality of the 1969 runoff was made clear in an announcement by Duane Georgeson, northern district engineer for the Los Angeles department of water and power. Owens Lake, said Georgeson, had 136,000 acre feet, while Crowley Lake had 132,000 acre feet at the last measurement, June 16. What it has gained in water, however, Owens Lake lacks in depth. The 136,000 acre feet is spread over several square miles, and the lake is only 5 feet deep at the deepest point. Landmark Hotel Might Not Open on Schedule LAS VEGAS (AP) -Publicity releases announcing the open ing of Howard Hughes' Landmark Hotel went out Monday while a case which may delay opening of the 31-story Tower Hotel bounced back and forth between courts in Las Vegas and Reno, The scheduied opening of the Tower Hotel on July 1 could be held up by a suit filed last week by Sun Realty Corp. The Las Vegas firm claims it should have been paid a $500,000 fee for arranging the sale of the hotel to Hughes. The case was referred to U.S. District Judge Roger Fo ley Jr. by federal bankruptcy referee Russell Taylor. Foley disqualified himself Friday and sent the case to the court of U.S. District Judge Bruce R. Thompson in Reno. Judge Thompson said Monday there was no way he could hear the case this week as Foley requested and added he was under the impression Foley would try to find another judge to hear it. "He (Judge Foley) indicated they were anxious for a hearing this week. I could not give it to them," said Thompson. "If it stays here it will follow the normal briefing procedure and be set for argument." Crowley Lake, the city's prin cipal High Sierra reservoir lo cated 30 miles north of here, holds about 60 billion gallons and is not hurting for water. However, its deepest point is about 100 feet from the surface. Rainbow trout and Sacramen to perch abound in Crowley Lake, which is the most heav ily-fished body of water in the Eastern Sierra region. Owens Lake, however, despite all its water, is good for little more than sailboating. Fish can not survive in the briny water and none of the runoff can be exported to Los Angeles. Owens Lake, located 70 miles south of here at the southern end of the Owens Valley, was a navigable body of water well into the 20th century. At one time, a paddlewheel steamer crossed the lake carrying the riches of the Cerro Gordo gold mine to outside markets. Once Los Angeles built its first aqueduct into the valley, beginning in 1913, and tapped the Owens River, the big desert lake was doomed to rise again only in periods of exceptional runoff. The first of those did not arrive until this year. can discuss and evaluate the various approaches to these problems." Judge Hyde said some of the judges are "insulated by life tenure" whiie others are "hold ing political offices. "This offers a diverse range of opinions, which is valuable to all the judges," he explained. Washoe Dist. Atty. William Raggio was scheduled to ad dress the College of Judges at a luncheon meeting today on the University of Nevada campus lawn. Judges from every state ex cept Connecticut are repre sented at the summer session. Each morning they meet in such classes as community relations, civil law, inherent powers sen tencing and probation, and special problems. The afternoons are devoted to library work, and each evening is spent in two-hour discussion sessions. "In these discussons, we try to review the previous dav's class," Judge Hyde said. "This in-depth discussion is very help ful m solving problems." On July 12, groundbreaking ceremonies will be held for the new $750,030 building which will house the judicial college. Money for the building has been donated by the Max C.

The ship just took a brief roll. I said 'We're dead.' I heard someone else yell, 'Let's get the hell out of here!' " Fireman Terry L. Baughman, 21, of Troy, Mich., said. He was describing his night of terror June 3 when the U.S. de stroyer Evans was sliced in half by the Australian aircraft car rier Melbourne during war games in the South China Sea. Baughman and two Evans shipmates appeared today before the joint U.S.-Australian board of inquiry investigating the collision. All three suffered second and third degree burns in the Evans engine room. Asked by the board how his injuries were, Baughman re plied: "I am alive." Seventy four of his shipmates went down when the bow section of the Evans sank. Fireman Michael W. Peacock 19, of Davenport, Iowa, said the impact of the collision threw him 10 to 12 feet from the engine room switchboard he was watching, and he saw steam lines breaking. "I started burning." he said. "I covered my face. A few seconds later sea water started gushing in. I got up and the water was up to my chest." Peacock said he crawled over pipes and escaped through a hatch to the right section of the main deck. FOR LEASE STORE SPACE OR OFFICE SPACE. CLOSE IN. 6,250 SQ. FT. 10' SQ. FT.
