SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1976 Panels OK 8 % raise for state's employes T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N CIdMn FhoenU Bureau PHOENIX - An 8 per cent across-the-board pay boost for all 28,000 state employes has t)een approved by the House and Senate Appropriations Committees. · The pay increase, plus a rherjx pay raise averaging 2.6 per cent, would coat taxpayers at least $22 million in 12 months beginning July 5. . Action came yesterday at a joint meeting of the committees. Lawmakers decided to settle on the cost-of-living increase early this year before agreeing on specific departmental budget requests. ·In the past, stale employe pay boosts generally were approved as the session wound down. Neither Gov. Raul H. Castro's $786 million budget nor the $802.7 million one recommended by the lawmakers' Joint Legislative Budget Committee staff includes any cost-of-living increase. Both "This is too much like bootlicking. It makes me feel dirty," said Rep. Tony West, R-Phoenix. Later, Senate Republican committee members unsuc- cessully tried to talk the Democratic majority into caucus before voting on the 8 per cent, and charged "abuse of power" when the commit- tee chairman, Sen. Edward Sawyer, D-Safford, refused. Sen. Boyd Tenney, a Prescott Republican, said he was "apalled" at Sawyer's ruling and called it "a disgrace to the two-party system." The House in a morning meeting agreed to the 8 per cent figure. The Senate in a simultaneous meeting was unable to corne to a similar consensus.

Nixon's 1972 reelection campaign. told about 100 persons at an Air Force Association executive council meeting that U.S. forces now are able to deal with one major war and one "minor contingency" anywhere in the world. "Five years ago, our forces were structured to deal simultaneously with a major contingency in Europe, a major contingency in Asia, and one or more lesser contingencies elsewhere," Sitton, 52, said. He said national security policymakers have decided to rely on "good intelligence to get more mileage . . . out of a smaller military force." He said the information was necessary to allow the military to plan its force structures and training, and to prevent surprises. Possible surprises include technological breakthroughs by potential enemies and Sitton warned against likely harm by ongoing Congressional investigations, and said a U.S. intelligence capability must be active and continuous: "There will never be enough time to resurrect it in time of crisis or emergency." And Sitton warned that in spite of "detente" with the Soviet Union, the Communist goal of "worldwide domination . . . remains unchanged." "Detente is real, detente is important, but u l t i m a t e l y detente is tactical," he said. He said the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. share a desire tO| minimize "dangerously overt conflict that could result in .war." General retiring Maj. Gen. Jack A. Albright, 55, commander of the Army Communications Command since October 1971, has announced that he has requested retirement from the Army in April. The command, headquartered at Ft.

By CHUCK GRAHAM Clttm EiKertalnmMI Writer Many thanks td jazz flutist Herbie Mann for not tossing off his Tucson Community Center Music Hall gig last year as just another desert water hole to play while traveling on to bigger places. Backed by his Family of Mann sextet all w evening, and the Tucson Youth Symphony part of that time, Mann swung a modest audience of less than 2,000 right on through the first of a two-night concert series. Those who caught his act heard one of the tightest and finest performances to take over the downtown stage in the past couple of years. The symphony kids were creditably churning out their parts, while Mann and the Family obviously enjoyed being surrounded by all those orchestral chairs full of such intense earnestness. these guest instrumentalists during their lengthy solo breaks were especially bright. Accompanying Mann were Pat Rebillot, piano, Jeff Meri- nov, guitar, Tony Levin, bass, and Rick Marotto, drums. After intermission, the four were joined by Armen Halburian, percussion, and Bob Mann, guitar. Coming after the introductory success of "Concerto Grosso," this meeting was enough to nail the audience to its collective chair, especially as the Mann ensemble began to reel off track after track from the flutist's 41 record albums. The songs were mostly Mann originals, beautifully done and completely free of the hackneyed mass appeal commercial phrasing some groups try to pass off as imagination. This scene was full of smiles, just right for blowing. Mann is apparently enjoying himself so much on his first Tucson visit that he and the Family want to do a special free show of "different album sounds" for all ticket stub holders from both last night's and tonight's performances. The unique bonus appearance will begin at 10:30 this evening, right after the 8 p.m. concert is finished. Those who attended last night's concert need only show their ticket stubs at the Music Hall doors at about 10:15 p.m. Reagan backers Durin s TM rprtn ".· to meet here Tucsonians backing Ronald Reagan's bid for the Republican presidential nomination will meet at II a.m. Monday at the Aztec Inn, 102 N.

He said chairmen for the effort will be named at the session, to be in the Montezuma room. the opening "Concerto Grosso in D Blues" there is a section where Mann and the Family play alone after performing for several minutes with the Youth Symphony. Even though that portion came early in the program, it was already difficult to tell if the young musicians were trying harder to please Mann or he was trying harder to groove on their behalf. At any rate, the improvisations by A national non-partisan world affairs education program will have its meeting at Levy's in the Multi-Purpose Room Monday, February 9, 10 a.m. For more information contact: William J.
