March 20, 19f»l THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC THE STATE'S GREATEST NEWSPAPER ';!<„" Economist Asks Study Of Water TUCSON (AP)—Dr. Raymond E. Seltzer, head of the University of Arizona department of agricultural economics, yesterday urged extensive study of three urgent questions to be raised by settlement of the Colorado River water dispute. "If the special master's decision on the Arizona-California dispute is upheld by the U. S. Supreme Court, as expected, it may result in Arizona getting an additional 1,800,000 acre feet of water from the Colorado River," Seltzer said. Seltzer feels these problems will result: 1. What amounts of water with what probabilities can Arizona count on from the river from year to year in the future? 2. What are the best and most productive uses that Arizona can make of the additional water? 3. What is the best way to get these additional waters into use and out of the river? Seltzer said the picture at the end of the year on usable water j stored in Arizona's reservoirs j looked good. ! "IT WAS more than double the long-time average on the Salt and Verde system, and slightly higher than the long-run average in Lake Mead and Lake Mohave," Seltzer said. ,-..,-,, -™, j ^n The use of both ground and sur- six in January and 11 in February They averaged 40 facc waU?r [o| . irrigationi jndus .

"We tryin git a lil publicity, doncha kno\v, as a tourist center? Bes lil ol place in Texas have a good time." He said the residents agreed on a nickname for Dumas, i by way of stimulating tourist traffic. They are calling it Dumas, the Ding Dong Daddy Town!

While a driver performs, a sound camera grinds away, and the film strip is admissible as evidence in court. The tests are familiar: Walk a straight line. Close eyes and bring in forefinger to nose. Pick up coins from floor. Repeat, "Around the rugged rock the ragged rascal ran." Tucson reports— "Under the new system, there is no record of counsel having entered an innocent plea for his client after seeing a sneak preview of the film." « *• •::• Smokey Bear with a shave, J. Morgan Smith of Albuquerque, N.M., has distributed his annual report on the multiple uses of the 12 national forests in Arizona and New Mexico. Recreation is deemed to be "the fastest growing use." In I960, there were 8,200,000 visits to the forests. Up a half million from the year before. Lumber worth $22 million wholesale was harvested. The forests supported 330,000 big game animals, 231,000 cattle and 136,000 sheep. The men in green picked up 899,000,000,000,000 beer cans. At least, it seemed that many. •X- v> '..ALL WOMEN appreciate fur coats, but Mrs. John R. Sandige Sr. will have an especially high regard for hers.

She has a daughter, Jean, by the recently defeated heavyweight. If true, the unpleasantness would come around the date set for Ingo to marry his scretary and sweetheart, Birgit Lundgren— but then, they've set dates before, haven't they? A fantastic rumor from Cuba—but one from an excellent source—relates that Fidel Castro has "booby-trapped" all of downtown Havana, including luxury hotels and public buildings, so when he concludes that the jig is up on his crazy regime, he'll press a few buttons and blow up the whole place. Tin Pan Alley talk about the Livingston-Evans score for "Three Men on a Horse" is full of praise and lavish with predictions of hits. Eleven tune publishers and record company executives attended the first important playing of the score, when producer Joel Specter presented it to Betty Grable in Las Vegas.

He used to have 12—now he's down to a mere five. JACKIE CHAN, onetime flame of Antony Armstrong- Jones, is resisting U.S. offers to do a book about Princess Margaret's husband, although there's still considerable interest in the subject in publishing circles. She explains her Golden Rule position succinctly: "I wouldn't like it if someone did it to me." What, no more rusty little black dresses for Edith Piaf ? Marc Bohan of Christian Dior is designing a few numbers for her on-again off-again Russian tour. Joanie Sommors has been signed to costar with Pat Boone on the NBC Pat Boone spectacular April 20—the result of her fine showing with Bobby Darin on his video show last month. Escudcro, the famed flamenco dancer, was so impressed by Carmen Amaya's performance at the Chateau Madrid the other night that he sent a friend out in the middle of the act to buy a large bouquet of roses. After the finale, Escudero went onstage to present the flowers to her. This column's feeling that, the producers would have to change the title of the new Paul Newman film, "The Hustlers," to something more attractive was justified when the boys in charge decided to rename it "Sin of Angels." The fresh title was inspired by a William Henry Davies poem, "Ambition," which contains the line: "I had ambition, by which sin the angels fell; I climbed and, step by step, 0 Lord, ascended into Hell." THE CAST of "Tenderloin" is giggling over Jayne Turner's dating schedule. She's frequently seen with eligible songwriter Johnny Burke, but they have a feeling she prefers another, with whom she has quieter dates . . . Viola Roche, one of the -grande dames of the theater, is ailing at her Riverside Drive apartment. She was last seen on Broadway when she replaced Cathleen Nesbitt as the mother in "My Fair Lady" . . . Russ Morgan's son, Jack, who plays in the Morgan band, is slated for major surgery.

Everett David Williams, 17, was taken to Mesa Southside Hospital with a rifle bullet in his upper eft thigh. The companion whose rifle went off while they were *oing through heavy brush was Roger Barrientos, 15. Both youths live on the ranch. Hospital authorities reported the bullet lodged in the thigh bone and would probably be removed by surgery. The accident was reported by Sheriff's Deputy David Sanders.

A native of Bloomington, Idaho, Mrs. Claridge (nee Nelson) came to Arizona with her family in 1890. They settled in Thatcher where in 1892 she married Mr. Claridge, who took an active interest in Graham County politics and served four terms in the state senate. The family moved to Phoenix in 1919 and for many years Mr. Church Role Panel Set FLAGSTAFF — The role of the church in American political and social life will be the subject of a panel discussion Wednesday, iponsored by the Student Religionj Mrs aaridge was a member of ing command posts. Both were incorporated into the department's regular fire fighting gear by Rae A. Echols, ttie city's fire communications superintendent. ?. THE RADIOS are regularly marketed commercial items. But Echols actually played a part in the development of the "Smokeye;." a revolutionary firefighting gadget that city firemen pioneered operation- wise six months ago. Echols provided the brainstorm that led to the actual invention of the gadget by Dr. William A. Rhodes, of 4421 N. 14th St. Rhodes is research director of the Henes Manufacturing Co., of Phoenix, now planning to market the invention. Echols explained he needed a device which could seek out hot spots, such as a smoldering short-circuited wire behind a plaster wall. Or perhaps a burning roast in a smoke filled residence. So he mentioned the idea to Rhodes. A few weeks later Rhodes had built such a detec- blocks, the chiefs use the radios to bark out orders to the numerous fire rigs that converge at a fire. They also use it, via a relay system, to communicate enhower from a two-week .stay in Arizona.

ALTHOUGH they are quite willing to give up their spare time for the arts, outlanders are loath to give up their identity, livery year, it seems to us, more and more native clubs are being organized. It used to be that the New York Socieiy of Phoenix, the Pennsylvania club of Arizona, and Californians for Themselves were the only units that got together on y bright winter afternoon in South Mountain Park and toasted their comradeship and the old hometown in hotdogs, hamburgers and coffee.
