6-Monday, Dec. 14, 1970 Reno Evening Gazette Students spend two nights, day in rain doing ecology research It was cold and wet. Rain pelted clothing, eventually even penetrating rain gear. It splattered into faces, and coursed in tiny rivulets over cheeks and noses. In short, it made ideal working conditions for a group cf students at the University of Nevada, Reno. For 36 continuous hours, two tights and a day, during the height of the recent storm in the Reno area, the students waded in Tahoe Basin and Sierra Firm adopts new name: Recrion Corp. BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) Stockholders approved Thursday changing the name of Par- vin-Dohrmann Co. to Recrion Corp. and stripping the firm of all its holdings except three hotel-casinos in Las Vegas, Nev. The 45-minute shareholders meeting saw no challenges to management, a marked contrast to previous meetings of the Los Angeles-based firm. The name change, which should be effective Monday in the company's common stock listing on the American Stock Exchange, was seen as an image-changing move. "The board, of directors believes that the proposed change of name will better reflect the company's activities and will help overcome the effects of the adverse publicity suffered by the company during the last year," said Delbert Coleman, majority stockholder. Trading of the firm's stock was temporarily suspended this year by the American Stock Exchange because of a government suit charging Coleman and others with violations of securities laws. Parvin-Dorhmann announced sale this week of its hotel and institutional supply subsidiaries to Holiday Inns. The firm maintained control of the Fremont, Stardust and Alladin hotels. 1972 issues peace, prosperity Morton: governors' help needed Adverttsm.itt District reports $2.1 million school damage SACRAMENTO (AP) -Burglary, theft and arson caused $2.1 million damage in Califor nia's largest school district in fiscal 1969-70. This is the damage estimate for the 400,000-student Los An geles City Unified School District given by administrative consultant Gordon Trigg to a Senate education subcommittee hearing in the Capitol. Trigg said the district has in creased its security staff from 15 to 104. but still needs another 100 agents and more burglar alarms to thwart night-time breakins of schools. Only 57 students were expelled bv the district in fiscal 1969-70 with most expulsions coming for narcotics or assaults. Trigg and other Los Angeles spokesmen said racial conflict was not the major source of campus violence. They were unable to single out a cause for some fights at high school football games except to suspect "outsiders." - creeks like Incline, First, Second and Third, Galena, Grey, Bronco and others. The students, majors in Renewable Natural Resources, College of Agriculture at the University, assisted in a research effort that includes analyzation of sediment concentrations produced by rain storms in the surrounding Sierra region. Work is being done under a U.S. Department of the Interior Water Resources Research Center grant. "A primary objective of the study," said Douglas J. Jager, research assistant in RNR and project leader, "is to determine the effect of land-use and water shed condition on the production of sediments and plant nutrients." Jager said that 24 streams in the Sierra including some in the Tahoe Basin are involved. Some of the streams, he said, are relatively undisturbed while others are in the heart of development activity. This enables a comparison, he said. During the storm, which pro duced a rise in many of the streams, the students sampled 14 of the 24 creeks. They took periodic water samples from each. The samples will be analyzed for seeds, nitrates and phosphates as well as other components. Results, hopefully, will provide a better understanding of the area's ecology and provide data that may be used for environmental enhancement, Working on the project, aside from Jager, are two graduate students. They were assisted in the sampling by a number of undergraduate students. Some worked the entire 36 hour pe riod. Others worked in shifts. In order to obtain the samples they waded into the creeks until the water became too high. They then suspended samplers from bridges and culverts, or used other means to acquire what they needed. ! "The effort of the students is one example of their getting out of the classroom and into the field to learn," Jager said. In the course of doing the work, Jager said that some un expected things happened. At 3:00 a.m. on one of the creeks, a highway patrolman was per plexed as to what students would be doing out in a storm at that hour. In another instance, the students returned to a creek they had sampled one hour ear lier and found that an automo bile had skidded into the creek and was partially submerged. SUN VALLEY, Idaho (AP) - Republican National Chairman Rogers C. B. Morton told GOP governors today the party needs their political leadership to pre Groups suggest auto accident insurance plans CHICAGO (AP) - Insurance plans which would provide fast compensation for bodily injuries in an auto accident no matter who was at fault have been proposed by two nationwide insur ance associations. Personal injury claims, under the proposals, would be arbi trated by insurance companies, using a system similar to an arbitration process now used to handle vehicle damage claims among companies. Changes in state insurance laws would be required, however, before the plans proposed by the American Mutual Insurance Alliance AMIA and the National Association of Independ ent Insurers NAII could be enacted. The nearly identical proposals were labeled the "Guaranteed Protection Plan" by the AMIA and the "Dual Protection Plan" by the NAII. Both recommended that state statutes be altered to require that every policyholder have a minimum coverage of $2,000 for medical expenses and $6,000 for disability income. Even if he were at fault, a person covered by the plans would receive Immediate pay ment of claims for bodily inja ry, the associations said. Then insurance companies which con tend the client they paid was not at fault could seek out of court payment from the other driver's insurance company. xne plans tail snort or no fault" auto ' insurance, which has been rejected by the Indus try as unfeasible. pare for a 1972 campaign waged on the issues of peace and pros perity. " His emphasis on the political role of the governors seemed an effort to offset President Nix on's own postelection discount of their importance m the presi dential campaign. Morton, the Maryland con gressman Nixon chose to be come the new secretary of the interior, said the most important leadership in molding a po litical organization "is that supplied by the governor's office." "We will need your best ef forts to win in '72," Morton told the Republican Governors Conference. That has produced some com plaints among the governors, and some of them also have complained about the 1970 cam paign saying a more positive approach would have done bet ter for the GOP. Morton said there was no doubt economic issues were an important factor in the Nov. 3 elections in which Republicans lost 11 governorships. He said the administration Is making "a very difficult transi tion from war to peace, from an inflationary to a stable econo my. Unemployment and the rate of inflation will both be lower in 1972 than they were in 1970," Morton said. The Republican governors are expected to try to persuade the White House to adopt a new po litical look in the 1972 cam paign, with the emphasis on the positive rather than the attack But one Republican governor said his colleagues are not like Iy to stage any political rebel- TRAFFIC FATALITY LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada's highway fatalities reached 248 for the year with the death of Bovd Charles Brown, 22, Las Vegas, who died following in- iuries suffered in an auto acci dent last month, the Nevada Highway Patrol has said.

Thirty GOP governors and governors-elect hold the first business session today at their winter conference in this snowy mountain resort. Ten of them here will be yielding their statehouses to newly elected Democrats next month. All told, Democrats dis placed eleven Republican gover nors in the November elections "One of the things that's going to keep this from being very flashy is that about half the people here are looking for jobs in the Nixon administra tion," said Gov. Tom McCall of Oregon. "That's going to inhibit any revolution." There has been speculation that Gov. Raymond P. Shafer of Pennsylvania, chairman of the Republican Governors Associa tion, may wind up in the admin istration after he leaves office. Gov. Don Samuelson of Idaho. another lame duck, said he would like an appointment to work on Western states pro grams for the interior or agri culture departments. Gov. David F. Cargo-of New Mexico said he is going back to the practice of law and is not interested in any administration posts. About a dozen of the governors planned to meet later today to talk about politics, the 1970 campaign and the future of the party. Cargo and McCall both raid they were concerned about President Nixon's firing of Interior Secretary Walter J. Hickel. Cargo said he intends to protest Hickel's ouster to administra tion officials. Vice President Spiro T. Ag-new is to address the governors Tuesday evening and confer with them privately over breakfast Wednesday. Gov. Linwood Holton of Virginia said he would have pre ferred a more positive tone In 1970 administration campaign ing, and added that he thinks his colleagues generally agree. Rep. Rogers C. B. Morton, who is stepping out as Republi can national chairman to suc ceed Hickel, was to address the governors today. TWfnve P Anrirf. WnV That !
