Vol. 91--No. 81--Phone HI 2 - 1 7 1 1 EUREKA, CALIFORNIA THURSDAY EVENING, APRIL 5, 1962 lOc Per Copy 32 Pages Today $41,000 Bay Study Included In Planning Program Harbor, Shoreline City's Chief Assefs View Of Consu/fanfs Almost everyone here knew before, and acknowledged it, but outside experts have confirmee that Humboldt Bay and its shoreline are Eureka's chief assets. For this reason, the City Council has included a $41,000 Harbor a " Shoreline development plan in the $261,000 planning undertaking authorized this week. Livingston and Blayney, who will do the plan, says in its re port: ."The shoreline is the site of the great lumber mills and the harbor that comprise the most important elements of the com munity's economic base. Hers sites offering water and rail Irans portation and possible future highway service will be available for new industries and distribution facilities. If the bay were bridged, the Samoa Peninsula might provide an appropriate location for a close-in airport. Except for the Clues Lacking As Officer's Wife Assaulted, Slain Mrs. Kathleen Dodd VENTURA (UPI) -- Homicide detectives today pressed the search for the killer of an expectant mother who was criminally assaulted and then stabbed to death with a butcher knife Officers said they had "no concrete leads" in the slaying of Kathleen Dodd, 22, mother of of .two, who.was found Wednesday about 300 yards from her home in a field. Neighbors said Mrs. Dodd, wife of Ventura Sheriff's Deputy Robert Dodd, constantly feared prowlers and kept her doors and win- dqws bolted day and night. Police said they had brought in several persons for questioning but were unable to turn up a lead. A neighbor said she heard Mrs. Dodd's screams and saw her staggering in the field. Police said a trail of blood from the victim's six stab wounds ran from the house to the field. Her husband was away when she was killed. Kennedy Seeking New Tax On All Pleasure Boats WASHINGTON (UPI) -- President Kennedy Wednesday asked Congress to tax pleasure boats upwards of $57 million a year to help pay for federal acquisition of land and water recreation areas. It was part of a revenue plan to finance a national conservation program outlined to Congress by the President earlier this year. Kennedy recommended four pri mary revenue s o u r c e s which would be used for maintaining existing federal recreational areas and acquiring new ones. They arc: --Admission fees to the areas. --Diversion of proceeds from sale of federal surplus non-military buildings and land. --Government retention of ! cents per gallon of the excise tax on gasoline for gas used in boats --A new annual federal "use" tax on all pleasure bonts. would be $5 per year on a boat 14 to IB feel long, with an nddi llonal $2 a year for each fool over 16 feel. small craft harbor little advantage has been taken of the shore-line's recreation potential. The islands and the peninsula with its greal sand dunes, offer outstanding rec reation park sites that would serve local residents and attract tourists to the area. The large protected expanse of the bay makes it ideal for .certain types of water sports. According to the State Division of Beaches and Parks, its most overtaxed facilities are beach parks, including those in Sonoma and Mendocino counties whose climate is similar to Eureka's. Some of this need could be met by slate beach parks on Humboldt Bay. Enormous Potential "For all these reasons, a Harbor and Shoreline Development plan should be prepared to ensure-that the enormous potential value of these areas is not wasted. The timing of plan preparations will be ideal because the U. S. Corps 'of Engineers will complete an exhaustive harbor .improvement study this summer. The development plan will take account of tlie cost of fill needed to make shoreline sites usable. "The General Plan industry and distribution survey results will be refined to indicate types and amounts of land that will be needed for these purposes in five, 10 and 25 years. Similar projections of recreation, park and tourist facilities will be made. "The plan will show in detail commercial harbors, industrial and distribution facilities' sites, small craft harbors, tourist facilities, recreation parks, water spprts areas and natural preserves. Based.on regionwide traffic studies and projections of traffic to be generated by the harbor and shoreline areas, bridges, freeways, and a complete road system will be proposed. If an airport site is justified, it will be included in the development plan. Possible Financing "Particular attention will ;iven to possible federal and state financing of harbor improvements, airport, bridges, freeways, parks and other projects potentially eligible for such aid. As in the case of the Central District Plan, the costs of public projects requiring local financing will be estimated and specific sources of funds sug- ;ested. "Sites to be acquired and projects to be built in each five-year period will be programmed. Other measures necessary to carry out :he plan will be recommended. In addition to coordinating federal, state and local expenditures, the Harbor and Shoreline plan will used to promote industrial and other appropriate types of development and to attract investment to the Humboldt Bay area. "Assuming the General Plan and Economic Development studies are made first, the Harbor and Shoreline Plan will cost $41,000. The federal government will contribute two thirds to the cost. The local contribution will consist of staff services (Planning Department, Public Works Department, city manager, finance director), and cash, all or part of which should be contributed by larbor and shoreline property owners and others interested in the development of the area." The resolution adopted Tuesday night by the City Council on the planning provided that as its share in the total cost, the city of pay $65,561.33 cash, with the use of personnel for technical assistance in the value of $21,500. Two Trapped In Hotel Flames Die WASHINGTON (UPD - A fire [hat started in an overstuffed chair trapped two men in their Mayflower Hotel suite early today and the smoke suffocated them as they sought refuge in the bathroom.

Walker Finished up two days of testimony on alleged military muzzling today by questioning Secretary of State Dean Rusk's patriotism and throwing a punch at a newsman after leaving the stand. He told the special Senate subcommittee investigating troop in- 'ormation and education programs' that he was not satisfied with Rusk's dedication to (lie nation's independence and security.

(UPI Teteplioto) Congress Gefs JFK's Transporfafion Plan WASHINGTON (UPI) -- President Kennedy sent Congress today an amibitious transportation probe gram which looked to reductions air, rail and bus fares and federal aid to improve urban-suburban transit. The 6,000-word message was described by Myer Feldman, deputy special counsel to the President, as the first comprehensive national transportation plan ever drafted by a Chief Executive in U.S. listory. The message was designed to enunciate a new, broad transpor- ation policy, curtail federal regu- ation and subsidy, eradicate discrimination and inconsistency in present laws and rules, and lay he groundwork for a modern, effective metropolitan area mass ransit. "The troubles in our transporta- ion system are deep," the President said. Less Federal Regulation Kennedy's proposals included: --Less subsidy and federal regulation, especially removal of restrictions setting minimums on passenger fares. Also, simpler and lossibly lower freight rates. --That Congress vote $500 mil- ion in grants to local authorities or investment in rail and road mass transit facilities, such as terminals right-of-way and rolling stock. Federal money would pay two-thirds of investment costs with local funds financing the remainder. The $500 million would be for three years. --More federally sponsored research to make the transportation of people and freight more effi- icnt, thereby cutting costs. --New charges of users of airways and inland waterways as iroposed by Kennedy earlier this r'ear. Repeal of the 10 per cent excise tax on passenger fares, travelers would pay a 5 per cent "user charge." --Development of a policy which would guide the Civil Aero- Old Folks Home Fire Fatal To 3 TORONTO (UPI) -- Flames swept through an old folks home in castcnd Toronto early today, killing three elderly women. Police idonlificd the victims as Marion Towers, 7!l, Mrs. Agnes Cocker, 77, and Alice .Jamieson, 77, nautics Board (CBA) and the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) in air and rail mergers. The effect would be less autonomy for these agencies which sometimes are described as "independent." The President's unusually long message contained the last major set of legislative proposals plans to submit to Congress for action this year. Sen. Harrison Williams, D-N.J., was expected to introduce a bill containing the mass transit provisions. ne rcka Red Newspaper Hints At Party Purge In China TOKYO (UPI) - The official newspaper of the Chinese Communist party today denounced party members who have become "arrogant" and "self-complacent" and said they must be "re-educated." Observers here said the criticisms may presage a purge of the Chinese Communist party. The .errned the attack most "unusual' since it publicly disclosed the existence of "defects" among Chi. nese Communist party members. It was regarded particularly significant since it came while the National People's Congress -- the rubber-stamp Chinese parliamenl --is meeting in secrecy in Pci- ping. The altack came in an edilorial demanding "better education' party members in the Peiping People's Daily which was broadcast by Radio Peiping and monitored in Tokyo.

Nixon Urges Local Rule For Schools SAN JOSE (UPD--Richard M Nixon has called for continued local control of the public educational system. Addressing the Santa Clara County School Board Wednesday night, the GOP gubernatorial candidate called local educational control "a full-time, 100 per cent matter--and any retreat represents an opening wedge that may pull down, ultimately, our whole tree way of life. "We must also recognize this fact: Whoever pays the bill calls the tune. If we turn to Washington for financial assistance, and :f we sit back and wait for the federal government to assume the evermounting burden of educational costs, then we are inviting control of our local schools by the federal bureaucracy." Earlier, the former vice president autographed copies of his new book, "Six Crises." in San Francisco's downtown Emporium store. He received warm applause from shoppers when he entered. A double line of customers stood railing the length of the store to obtain Nixon's signature. While seated in the store, Nixon discussed a variety of topics with newsmen. He said he was keeping in touch 'y with Sacramento and the inter- party fight over Gov. Edmund G. Brown's $2.9 billion budget: Nixon repeated his earlier statement regarding the Alger Hiss case, saying it was a research- it er's error that led to confusion about the typewriter involved in the case. He also said he was sludyiiif, the transportation problems of III Itny Area mid I*s Angeles. ias been controlling. the Central Intelligence Agency's "operating arm" since 1954. The target of Walker's punch was Tom Kelly, a reporler for the Washington Daily News. The [lare-up occurred outside the iiearing room when reporters gathered to hear Walker read a statement for television and newsreel cameraman. -Kelly asked Walker about a statement attributed to George Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi party.

Walker then strode from the building without further comment. Senator Praises Walker At the end of Walker's testimony, Sen. Strom Thurmond, D- S.C., a staunch supporter, lauded the former general as a "great soldier...a great American.' Thurmond said, however, he did not agree with all of Walker's statements nor with some of the methods he used to advocate them. Sen. E.L. Bartlett, D-Alaska., said there was no question but that Walker was "a dedicated American." Chairman John Stennis, D-Miss., added he thought' of Walker in terms of "a field General. Under closing questioning by the Senate investigators, Walker, who resigned from the Army after being admonished, charged that CIA intelligence estimates are arranged to fit a "no-win" policy. He said that "instead of State traitors." Walker told the Senate group he was "framed in a den of iniquity" because he ran head-on into a "no-win" policy he charged was being followed by Rusk. He said others "framed by this hidden policy" were Gen. Douglas MaCarthur, the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy, the late Defense Secretary James A. ForresUil. former President Synghman Rhee of South Korea and Moise T-shombi of Katanga. Walker ended by 'telling the committee "we are digging our own grave" in the cold war. He said it was three feet deep now and that the State Department t, was digging two feet more--"al that would be necessary"--with its disarmament plan. (Earlier story on Page 7) Department policies being made on the basis of CIA estimates, CIA estimates are made to fit State Department policies." Sen. Howard W. Cannon. D Nov., challenged Walker to name Communists who had infiltrated the government and the Army. "I believe we caught only one, Hiss," Walker replied. This was a reference to Alger Hiss, former State Department official who was convicted of perjury for denying that he slipped secrets to a Red espionage ring. Walker also mentioned three persons named during the McCarthy investigations of alleged to infilitration into the government Si in the early 1950s. He said he had been accused of calling some people communists. Walker said this was "not McClain Assails Delay On Budget SACRAMENTO (UPI1-- Gcorg, McClain, champion of California*: senior citizens, today charged the Assembly Republican minority had "forgotten ils first rcsponsi bility is to the people" in voting against the state budget, "The chances arc the insurgents will not carry on these tactics long enough to halt the proccs sing of pension checks," McClain said, "but there is no guarantee they will know where to slop."
