Frank Hanson, 14, Of Glendale Holds Green Chick Hatched In Class Project Called Kooreetsee, (Russian for chicken), the bird lives in a box' in the classroom. When its peeps' get too loud, Frank puts the pet on his desk or cradles it in the palm of his hand. Wherever Frank goes, the chick is sure to go. On March 13 Frank placed the egg in a foil-lined cardboard box incubator, equipped with light bulb, thermometer, find water (for moisture). He turned the egg once a day. On March 25 he injected green food coloring with a hypodermic needle into the small part of the egg, which contains the air pocket. Before the injection, he placed masking tape over the point of injection so as not to break the shell. Afterwards, he covered the hole witth tape to keep in the green coloring and to keep the air out. The chick was born last- Thursday. How long will the chick stay green? That's the purpose of the ex? periment, Mason Koffman,' teacher, said. Frank intends to find out. Next year, the class hopes to develop a chick in blue and white, the school colors. Scout Party Overdue on 4-DayHike NINE Phoenix Boy Scouts and their three^.adult supervisors were reported tnogre.-thah 24 hours overdue yesterday from a 60-mile hike into the, rugged Mazatzal mountain range.' • The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said.' and rescue operation might be started today. But there was uncertainty whether it or .Yavapai County would have jurisdiction. THE YOUTH, all members of Scout Patrol 40$ of Sahuaro School in Westown^. were jdenti- fied as Joey Smith','' 14, of 3326 Aster Drive; Pat and Mike Tucker, 13 and 16, of 3107 W. Wind- rose Ave.; George Hinant Jr., 14, 3132 W. Wethersfield; Gary Judy, 14, of 3-254 W. Corrine Drive; John Mandoske, 13, of 2S13 W. Aster Drive; Bill Ledinski, 14, of 3325 Windrose Drive; Dale Bentrup, 14, no address, and Larry Leshber, 14, no address. Their supervisors were listed as Malcolm Smith, 38, the scoutmaster and father of Joey; Bob Smith, 25, Joey's brother; and Bill Tucker, father of Pat and Mike. According to George Hinant, assistant scoutmaster, the youths were taken by car to Strawberry, northeast of Pine, on Thursday. The plan called for the group to hike southward along the Verde River to Horseshoe Dam, where they were to be picked up by Hinant on Sunday afternoon. THE GROUP was equipped with five days of supplies, and water was readily available from the river, he said. Hinant said that a private plane last spotted the group at 7:10 a.m. Sunday at the confluence of the West and East Verde rivers, one mile south of Hardscrabble Mesa. He said on the basis of this information the troop was' apparently 24 hours behind schedule. Hinant said he and a guide, Claude Wright of Sheep Btidge rode horseback into the brushy area Sunday afternoon in an attempt to find the group. Don Dedera Saddle and Sirloin --Victim of Progress Accidents Claim 2 TWO highway accidents in southeastern Arizona took two lives yesterday running the state death count to 139. On the same date one year ago 112 persons had died. Robert Dease, 32, of the Swan Ranch near Bisbee died last night shortly after his car ran off U.S. 80 6 miles east of Bisbee, The other victim was David D. Fairchild, 68, oi Daytona Beach, Fla., who was killed when his car crashed headon with a vehicle driven by Phillip Seff of Tucson. A FEW DAYS ago in Phoenix, so quietly that hardly anyone noticed, the Saddle and Sirloin Club gasped its last. The family would prefer no obituary. But such a once- robust body deserves at least a memoir and a requiem and a certified cause of death, at the tender age of 20. Kemper Marley thinks he and the late Phil Tovrea begat the club. Since territorial days cattlemen met at the Hotel Adams to draw up million-dollar deals on. the tablecloths and close them with drinks at the bar. -Then, seemingly overnight, Into the desert cow town crowded servicemen and defense workers. Public places were jammed. To hear themselves think; Marley and Tovrea rented a room and had meals sent In. Word spread among brokers and feeders and ranchers. : In a few days Marley anil Tovrea had'a list of 50 men who were willing and able to support a private club where ranching business could be mixed with city pleasure. Tovrea was first president. INITIATION FEES of $250 paid for leather furniture and paneling, and fixtures for a bar and kitchen. Tom Chauncey, first secretary and treasurer, recalled that the club tried to lose money on meals. Members periodically drove to the stockyards, chose the best animal in the pens, fattened it to perfection, and had it butchered and aged. Many a guest asserted that the Saddle and Sirloin served the best steaks in the West. It also had atmosphere. In the one smallish room with plain decorations, members and guests could relax and get acquainted. Men with manure on their boots were the majority, and if wives wanted to show up" in evening dresses, that was their business. Too, the place had slot machines. Through the 40s, most Phoenix clubs did. Before Charter Government reforms, the Saddle and Sirloin accumulated a surplus of $60,000. • "I think success was the reason for our failure," said one old- timer who'd as soon not be mentioned. "We'd about outgrown the Adams place. The club was moved up to the Westward Ho, and a fortune was spent on making the place so pretty that a lot of the old members were ashamed to walk in wearing their Levi's. They dropped out." OTHER ORIGINAL members mention other factors. Phoenix business and social activities scattered. A Cowman's Club formed at the stockyards. Downtown developed its parking crisis. And, perhaps as much as anything, cattlemen changed. The free-dealing pioneers gave way to younger stockmen who are more accountants than cowboys. Periodic injections of new money did no lasting good. New members initiated at $60 stayed away in droves. Whatever killed the Saddle and Sirloin, it wasn't heartburn or fanny blisters. To the end, the management was able, the help loyal, the food better than most. ' "I'm not sure any of the standard reasons were decisive," reflected Chauncey. "You know, we never established a goal beyond our own needs. We were all busy, and we never got around to it. If we had, our own enthusiasm would have remained. "Maybe instead of getting so fancy, we should have given the $60,000 to buy calves for poor kids, but now the chance is gone." CITY Twins 9 Home Yields More Loot By-JACK KAWfc POLICfe last niglit literally removed everything but I h e kitchen sink from the Tempe apartment of Iranian twins now held under $50,000. bonds each for the kidnaping of a 3-year- old- Phoenix boy. "Everything but thai kitchen sink had been stolen from some place," said a Scottsdale detective. Meanwhile, the 1 two suspects, Nassei* Haghighi, 26 and his twin, Mansour, have been positively identified by witnesses as robbers who staged a $3,100 holdup of the Safeway Store in Scottsdale on March 23, police said. The brothers have steadfastly denied implication in the robbery. Yesterday they were picked from a nolice lineup by five witnesses. To date, Sheriff's deputies;, Phoenix police, and Scottsdale officers have recovered more than $15,000 worth of stolen items from the apartment at 920 E. Apache Blvd., Tempe. Earlier, officers had removed .thousands of dollars in merchandise allegedly stolen from Tempe shops and homes in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, and Phoenix'. Take Furniture Last night officers went back to remove the remaining furniture which they said they learned was stolen last month from a model home of the Lusk Home Corp., Scottsdale. As evidence piled up against the- twins, U.S. Immigration au- thorities announced thfiy arc considering new deportation charges against the twins. Old deportation proceedings against Nasser were delayed yesterday pending outcome of the kidnaping charges. Stolen Car Charge Nasser had been ordered by Immigration Service on March 21 to show cause why he should not be deported for abandoning his status as a student at Arizona State University. Grove Callison, deputy regional director of the Immigration Service, said Nasser tried to obtain passage to Brazil shortly before he was apprehended by the FBI in New Orleans on a federal stolen auto charge. The twins came to the United States to enroll at ASU as foreign exchange students. Callison said Mansour. too, would be subject to deporation if convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude. Yesterday police were contacting university girl friends of the twin brothers to determine whether more stolen merchandise had been passed out as gifts. One coed turned in thousands of dollars worth of clothing and other presents she said had been given to her by Mansour during the past year. 'Couldn't Rcsisr The twins were arrested Friday and accused of the kidnapping of Mike Anther, son of Mr. and Mrs. John C. Anther of 110 W. Lynn Drive. The twins denied the kidnapping, saying they picked up the I boy because he, was crying and they believed him lost. When captured by Phoenix patrolmen more than three miles from the Auther home, they said they were taking the boy to the Scottsdale Police Department. Scottsdale, Tempc, and Phoenix officers said the twins admitted a burglary spree, contending, in their words, that they "couldn't resist the wonderful things in this country." Nasser and his brother, it was learned yesterday, have been frequent guests at homes of prominent society members in both the Paradise Valley and Scoltsdale area. Sometimes, police said, they returned to these homes to steal. ACTOR IN COURT—Flanked by his two attorneys, Frederick Steiner, left, and Roger Perry, screen star John Wayne appeared yesterday in Superior Republic Photo by Ken Hudson Court in attempt to prevent 'Phoenix real estate office from continuing to use his name. Wayne exchanged his Western wear for conservative suit. Blaze, Taxes Close Down The Flame THE FLAME restaurant, 34 W. Adams, was caught yesterday be- ween the frying pan and the fire. A sign on the front door said: 'Closed because of fire." Earlier in the day, Internal Revenue Agents seized the estab- ishment's liquor, some of its of- ice furniture and six of its seven cash registers for nonpayment of exise and withholding taxes. The downtown restaurant-night club, was hit by fire in the early morning hours of Sunday. Eight pieces of equipment answered the call at 12:35 a.m. The )laze, of undetermined origin, tarted in a passageway between a rear dining room and the kitchen and broke through the ceiling before firemen were able 10 control it. Extensive damage was done by smoke and water to the restaurant. SpoKesmen for the restaurant gave firemen an estimate of damages running from $30,000 to $40,000. John Wayne Tells Court He's Used Name 30 Years Robbers Get $40 At Liquor Store Alamo Liquors, 2001 E. Van Bur en, was robbed of $40 last night by two men, one carrying a small automatic pistol, police said. The clerk, P.. H. Clausen, 62, told police the bandits forced him to put the money in a sack, then ordered bun to stay in a back roonj of the store. By KEN HUDSON Film star John Wayne went to court yesterday to protect his famous name, even though it isn't his real name. Wayne shyly admitted his real name is Marion Robert Morrison, but quickly explained he has been using the John.Wayne name for more than 30 years and "pays taxes under that name." Wayne appeared before Superior case under advisement after Church asked for time to file a legal memorandum. A ruling is not expected for several weeks. Wayne showed Judge Chatwin his passport as proof of his common use of the name. The star said he was leaving for Acapulco last night on vacation. Wayne, and his business manager Donald La Cava of Encino, Calif., testified that the film star owns land in the Stanfield area which is used for cotton growing. Wayne also added that he hopes "to continue to invest here and grow with this great state." He said he had received telephone calls asking if he was connected with the John Wayne Realty and Investment Co. Real Estate Broker Wayne Johns testified "as many people call me John as call me Wayne." He said the fact of having two first names for both first and last has resulted in confusion "all my life."

Bernstein of River water case,' Californians Fete Arizona Chief Justice Bernstein Decision On Pipe Delayed By RONALD VAN DOREN THE Phoenix City Council last night, for the third time is as many months, ducked a decision on whether to ban use of bituminous fiber pipe under the city plumbing code. The sewer pipe, which has a market in the Phoenix area of a quarter-million dollars a year, has been judged inadequate by the Plumbing Advisory Board and the city building inspector, who claim it deteriorates in time with heat, pressure and moisture. The final case for banning the pipe was presented by Building Inspector Clarence Lintz. He said the s cost of inspections necessary to make sure installations of the pipe were adequate would be prohibitive. In rebuttal, Edward Johnson, Executive Secretary of the Bituminous Pipe Institute, offered an "unconditional 50-year guarantee" of all bituminous pipe installed in the area "from this day on." Johnson said the city department would not have to make extra inspections of the pipe installation, a point the council wanted studied, but would have only to see that the pipe complied with the existing plumbing code. THE COUNCIL did not specify when the matter would again be considered. In other action, the council took under advisement: a proposed closing of Brill Street at 50th Street, and established a policy allowing residents to build fences on public right of way under certain conditions. The Brill Street matter, first presented last month, Involves closure of the street to prevent traffic from the Motorola plant from using the residential street as a throughfare. Fifteen witnesses appeared, cither for or against the closure. Further action by the council was expected today. Public Works Director Fred Glending presented a number of slides and other evidence in support of the more lenient policy on fence construction, so long as the city is allowed to specificy the height of the fences and require removal of the fences when necessary. star's name. the Arizona Supreme Court was the Colorado he said.
