Jack Williams tried to extricate himself today from controversies oyer slot machines and anti- ppverty programs. "At his first news conference since returning from Washington, Williams also said he is optimistic something will be done to end the nationwide eight-month copper strike. ''Williams said that it was last December that his office had received a report that some slot machines were operating illegally in parts of Arizona, and that his office had asked local officials about this at that time. "The officials we queried replied quite politely that they tvere taking appropriate action," Williams said. "Shortly thereafter the Douglas Dispatch headlined an article 'No Slots in Cochise County.' Further investigations by this office indicate that the slots were not operating then, nor do I believe have they been operating recently." Williams said his office had never made any information public on its report. He said he has faith in local officials to uphold the law against slot machines. ; "Until we have formal complaint from citizens or officials that there is a breakdown in local law and order, it is not the proper role for the state to move in," Williams, said. '. The Republican governor also said the only role of his office in the anti-poverty program is to account for funds "to see that every cent due the poor gets to the poor." · "I was surprised to return from Washington and to read an AP dispatch and see headlined in a Yuma paper the phrase 'go to hell,'" Williams said, referring to a statement issued by antipoverty organization workers aimed at the governor. Williams said: "I expected only such use of four letter vords to be confined to the campuses at Berkeley or to placards of picketers wearing ong hair and flowers." (Robert Kennerly, Yuma, a eader in the fight to prevent state supervision of anti-poverty )rograms, has denied that the roup said "to hell with you" at a Phoenix meeting last week, iowever, he said the battle against state control "is a real one.") The governor said that under federal law he is responsible for the handling of millions of dollars in the anti - poverty program." "The administration will continue locally," Williams said, 'but a watchdog operation has seen created to keep belter account of the funds." : 'We are not talking about taking away local authority, or not letting the programs operate, but we are talking about tightening up on fiscal responsibility." Williams said he and five other governors met for five hours last Wednesday with the President to discuss the copper strike. The governors agreed to try to urge both management and labor to end the strike as quickly as possible under recommendations made by a federal panel. "The administration indicated it would give full support to the efforts of the states," Williams said. Williams reported the Central Arizona Project bill appeared to be making good progress in the U.S. House of Representatives. In answer to a question as to whether he would support New 'York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller if Rockefeller should get the Republican nomination for president, Williams said he would support any candidate getting the GOP nomination.

(AP Wirephoto) EQURPAID DAYS LEFT Legislature Bearing Down On Budget Now PHOENIX (AP) -- Work on the state budget was the preoccupation in the Arizona Legislature today with only four paid working days left in the regular session. T h e appropriations committees were aiming at wrapping up their separate work tomorrow night, then plan to start joint negotiations on the final form of the budget. Senate President Marshall Humphrey, R-Maricopa, said that after the budget is agreed on the two chambers can wrap up their work on other bills during the three or four days it takes to write and double check the budget bill. The budget usually is the last bill passed during die session. Some senators were upset that the House still was shipping them bundles of measures. So far, the House has sent 141 bills to the Senate, and the upper chamber has acted on 22 of these. The Senate has sent 90 bills to the House, and the lower chamber has acted on only seven. In addition to the budget, the Phoenix Soldier Killed In Action WASHINGTON (UPI) - A Phoenix man has been listed as killed in recent action in Vietnam. He was Pfc. James L.

GRANT Owned Operated by · JIM CORBETT - Since 1C90 only major bill considered must legislation by both sides is revamping of the industrial commission. The House has been moving at a snail's pace on the bill, apparently to force the issue to a special session. This morning the House gave tentative approval to four minor house bills and one Senate measure. The bills were to be passed this afternoon. The Senate bill would provide that stale law on liquor importation from Mexico shall be the same as the federal law. The other bills would prescribe pre-trial procedures on the issue of insanity, require licensing of hay brokers, establish new regulations on produce shipping and modify contributions political subdivisions make to the state retirement system. The House labor and management committee will hold a hearing tomorrow at 10 a.m. on a bill to set up a slate industrial safety division in the industrial commission. Committee Chairman James Shelley, R-Maricopa, said the public is invited to attend and participate in the hearing on House Bill 277 at the capital. 7 Deserters Get Haven In Sweden STOCKHOLM (UPI) -- Seven more deserters from the U.S. armed forces were granted political asylum today by the Swedish Aliens Commission. The Americans who said they were defecting to Sweden in protest against Ihe Vietnam War were granted asylum on "humanitarian grounds," a commission spokesman said.

Dunn A March 19 hearing has been ;et by the Tucson Civil Service Commission on the appeal by Sx-Police Sgt. William C. Dunn of his dismissal. Dunn was denied retirement pension benefits of his 20 years on the Tucson Police Department when he was fired Feb. 23 by Police Chief Bernard Garmire, who said Dunn had com- nitted "numerous violations of ·ules and regulations." At that Lime, Dunn was a week away from retirement. The firing came in the wake of investigation by Atty. Gen. Darrell Smith and a one-man grand-jury probe by Superior Court Judge Lawrence Howard into alleged police corruption in Tucson. The appeal, filed by attorney William T.Healy, charges Dunn did not receive notice of his dismissal as required by law, that the burden of proving alleged violations rested with the department and mat his dismissal constituted "double punishment." Civil Service hearings may be open or closed at the discretion of the employe. The commission may uphold the dismissal, reverse it but decree some lesser punishment or decide that there should be no disciplinary action at all. Deci- Bill Licensing Bingo Given Little Chance sions may be apealecl to Superior Court. According to police sources Dunn's pension would have amounted to about $335 a month. An intradepartmental investigation revealed "admin-is trative violations," according to Garmire, including alleged fal sification of official police case reports. PHOENIX (AP) -- A bill providing for state licensing of bingo is buried in two Senate committees and there is little chance it will be excavated during the current regular session. The bill, sponsored by Reps. Tom Goodwin, R-Pima, and Bud Walker, D-Pima, breezed through the House but has received little attention in the Senate. S e n . W i l l i a m Porter, R-Maricopa, said his finance and revenue committee would have to have a public hearing on the bill before they could act on it. Majority Leader Chet Goldberg, i.-Maricopa, says it's too late for any such public hearings. The bill would allow chari- table, religious and civic organizations to obtain licenses from the State Tax Commission to hold bingo games. Meanwhile, committee action in both the House and Senate was into the critical stages. The Senate Labor and management Committee approved a bill which would tighten up on eligibility for unemployment 'compensation and at the same time increase benefits. In the House, a bill to allow cities and counties to sanction n o n p r o f i t industrial development corporations cleared its last committee hurdle in the commerce and industry committee. A bill to revamp the State Development Board was to be considered today by the state government committee.

END OF AN ERA Last All-Night Drug Store Starts Closing At 11 p.m. By LEN DAWS Citizen Staff Writer ' For nearly 50 years Tucson as had an all-night drug store vhere prescriptions could be iiled around-the-clock. The end of an era, which bean in 1925, came this year vhen Ryan-Evans Drug Stores hanged store hours at its Congress and Fifth Avenue loca- ion, reflecting a decline in the pharmaceutical business down- own from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. "We began the all-night ihase-out Jan. 4, when we closed at 1 a.m.," Charles M. Vmdham, area manager of 10 l-E drug stores in Tucson, said oday. "Now our Congress Street ·lore is closed at 11 p.m., effec- ive last night," he added. The only place in Tucson vhere prescriptions can now be illed after 12 p.m. is Tucson Wfedical Center. Dr. James E. Brady Jr., president of the Pima County VIedical Society, termed it 'deplorable" that a city the size of Tucson does not have a cen- rally located drug store open all night. "I've had occasion to use the Description services of the ^yan-Evans store on Congress Street three or four times since began closing in January," ie said. "I am sure many of my more than 400 physician-col- .eagues here in Tucson have d similar experiences during this period." Mrs. Myrdas J. Brewer, director of TMC's pharmacy and central services, said most of She prescriptions filled there after midnight are for children and adults in emergency rooms. "We try to limit the compounding of late-hour prescriptions to emergency cases," she explained. The former owner of seven Ryan-Evans drug stores in Tucson, Andrew P. Martin of 80 S. Stone Ave., said he kept the Congreess Street facility open 24 hours a day for 30 years until t was sold by him in 1955. Martin, now "81-and-a-half years old and busier than ever," explained that the closing Js "probably due to (he fact ;hat registered pharmacists get $5 an hour, and it just isn't Colombian Plane Seized By Hijacker BOGOTA, Columbia (UPI)--A Colombian transport has been hijacked in flight and its pilot ordered to fly to Havana, authorities said today. They sad the plane carried 26 passengers and 4 crewmen. The hijack, if successfully carried out, would be the fourth such incident so far this year.

A Southern Pacific yard crew member said he had been dropping in regularly, since' 1925, after his work ended at 11:15 p.m. When he saw the sign on the door, indicating the new hours, he looked bewildered and remarked: "Well, I'll be."
