DOCCC TEIC/1DAU (DU\ · . .. ^..u u ... ii 1.1C ·· --- ~ New male bastion fails- 27* By STEVE LAWRENCE SACRAMENTO (AP) Twenty-seven women will take the wheel of California Highway Patrol ears for the first time this month, breaking an all- male barrier t h a t has lasted 45 years. And several of the CHP's f i r s t female o f f i - cers said Thursday that t h e y ' r e as capable as their .30 male classmates in dealing with trouble on the state's roadways "There is ho way you could get through this program without being qualified," said-Vivian C. Winsor, one of 40 women who began the CHP's 16-week training program last fall. THE women were part of a class of 57 cadets scheduled to g r a d u a t e Thursday from the CHP training academy. A w o m a n , Deborah Street, 22, of San Jose, took class marksmanship hojiors, and five of the class's top eight scholars were women. '.'We feel they are quali- fied to go to (he field without lowering the CHP's standards of service !e the people of California," CHP Commissioner Dan Lanza said of the female cadets. The women will report to Highway Patrol offices in San Francisco and Southern California Jan. 28 to begin 30 days of patrol work with a veteran officer. T h e y can then be assigned to patrol by themselves if their supervisors feel they are ready. Cadet Winsor thinks they will be. "I think we have been prepared for any subject that is capable of being handled," she said during a press conference held b e f o r e graduation ceremonies. The CHP opened its ranks to women last year after the Legislature approved a bill setting up a two-year, $1 million pro- g r a m to d e t e r m i n e if w o m e n c o u l d function adequately as CHP members.

L a n z a agreeded w i t h that comment during the T h u r s d a y news c o n f e r - ence. "I think that any logical point of view would have to agree with that," he said. THE 40 women accepted for the program were taken from a list of 1,500 women who applied for patrol jobo. During the first week of training one m a l e and two female cadets resigned. They were replaced, but 12 women and 11 men left the program later, cutting the class to 57. The academy's 16-week training program included methods of arrest, marksmanship, administrative functions, unarmed self- defense and physical fitness. . And although they will . p a c k pistols and billy clubs, several women said their new roles would not make them less feminine. " M a n y of the instructors said they were surprised that we kept our femininity d u r i n g training," said Ms. Winsor. Besides Ms. Winsor and Ms. Street, the female cadets are: · .

Cagle, Davis; Sense of honor to make embezzle suspect give up SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A branch manager accused of embezzling $573.000 from a Chinatown savings and loan office has a sense of honor and will return f r o m Taiwan to surrender, his attorney says. "He has a sense of honor and has come to the realization of the futility of anyone in his position choosing to live the life of a f u g i t i v e , " a t t o r n e y George T. Davis said in a telephone interview from Urbana, HI. His client, Quailand Tom, manager of the Chinatown branch of San Francisco F e d e r a l Savings and Loan Association, has been formally charged by the FBI with embezzling $573,000 from five longtime savings accounts. Davis said late Wednesday that Tom contacted him twice by overseas telephone, appealing for his help in returning. He said Tom was expected to fly back here today or Saturday.

SACRAMENTO (UPI) About 70,000 uninsured drivers who lost their licenses or were 'in danger of losing them are ironically being allowed _ .to keep their driving privileges because of a new law making it illegal to drive without insurance. The new law automatically repeals a law providing drivers found to be at fault in an auto accident had to. either have insurance or post a $10,000 bond. The 70,000 drivers had come u n d e r provisions of the old law. Of those 70,000 drivers, 35,000 had requested formal h e a r i n g s to determine who was at fault in their accidents. Accordingly, those found, to be at fault would not have to turn in their licenses until a f t e r the hearings. But they were spared when former Gov. Ronald Reagan -refused to provide the necessary funds to conduct the hearings, and this allowed the 35,000 individuals to keep their driving privileges. "They w e r e home free," said Albert Espey, manager of the Financial Responsibility Section of the Department of Motor Vniecles.
