Seer el WitniiS all ,Ci : jjjjfjity ends escapee's freedom UL4S2-34S1 Smog dip A UTOE Has there been any measurable decrease of smog in the Los Angeles Basin since the state first required smog control devices on automobiles? K.L.H., Lake- . wood. There has been "a marked decrease" in smog in the county in the past few years, said Dan Madden of the Air Pollution Control District. The decrease is "plainly visible" in the data collected, he said. In 1972, he explained, there were 211 days hi which the ozone level either equaled or exceeded .10 parts-per-million, and in 1973, the figure dropped to 185 days. William MacBeth, senior air pollution analyst with the , State Air Resources ' Board, said there certain- 'ly is a decrease in the basin's smog, with most of the decrease attributed to smog control devices which are standard on new cars. He said other factors, such as the "very stringent" controls on stationary sources, play a part in the somewhat cleaner air. Both men agreed that the remaining smog problem still is ^caused largely by motor vehicles. The controversial nitrogen oxides control devices now being required for ; 1966-70 cars aren't the answer, Madden said. He said Robert Lunche, the air pollution control officer for the district, believes the NOX devices offer no improvement in the smog condition because they make the ozone problem worse and increase gasoline consumption. In addition, he charged that they cause overheat ing and engine damage and will cost Los Angeles County car owners $49 million just for the installation alone. Won and lost '' J My son graduated from Millikan High School in June and received a $100 scholarship from the Kiwanis ' Club of Whittier. He was told that after he had enrolled as -a full-time college student, he was to send a letter from the school verifying his enrollment, and then the ''money would be mailed to him. He sent the information to an address he was given for the organization, - but his letter came back stamped, "no such address." We haven't been able to find out where he should write to get his scholarship money, which he desperately needs. B.W., Long Beach. With the help of the Long Beach Unified School District, we were able to track down the treasurer of the Whittier Kiwanis Club, Joseph Caviezel, who handles the scholarship payments. He apologized for the mix-up and said he didn't know why your son was given the wrong address. Your son should send his verification of enrollment to Caviezel in care of the Whittier Kiwanis Club, P.O. Box 4464, Whittier, Calif. 90607, and then his scholarship check will be mailed to him immediately. If you have any further questions, contact Caviezel at 698-0248. Almost three years of freedom for a 41-yearnold prison escapee came to 1 an end because of a tip telephoned to the Independent, Press-Telegram's Se- - cret Witness desk. South Gate detectives working on information supplied by the Secret Witness informant arrested Robert Nieto in that city shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday, less than three hours after the tip was relayed to them. The informant, offering no code name or number, disclaimed interest in a Secret Witness reward at the time of the tip, adding "I'm just tired of seeing this man walk around free." South Gate authorities said Nieto, who had been living in South Gate under an assumed name for an undetermined length; of . time, escaped from the California Institution for Men at Chino on March 3, .1972. At the time of his '"flight he was serving an indeterminate sentence for an armed robbery con. viction. : With the capture, Nieto became the 39th criminal suspect to be arrested , through Secret Witness since the program was inaugurated by the I, P-T '· on June 10,1972.

Angeles beginning, early this morningi · ' , ; . . ; Jake Koenig, secretary- treasurer and; executive officer of Teamsters Union Local 692 in Long. Beach, said the strike was called over wage disputes and the company's alleged failure to, remain competitive with American auto manufacturers. He said that the walkout has the support of the Sour note? \ I was informed by a friend who is involved with the Long Beach Symphony Association that the new municipal auditorium currently under construction will not have adequate facilities for symphony performances. I was told the Long Beach Symphony will Continue to appear at local high schools. Can Action Line find out if this is true, and if so, why the city is spending all that money when the building will be useless for our symphony orchestra and for residents who don't attend rock concerts or revivals? A.L., Long Beach. ' The $42.2-million Pacific Terrace Center convention complex will include a 3,100-seat auditorium suitable for symphonic events, light opera performances and other theatrical productions, according to City Architect George Montierth. The Long Beach Symphony probably will perform in the new auditorium when it's completed in three years, but the seating capacity may be too large for some of the orchestra's programs, said John Hyer, manager of the symphony. He said he has been meeting with city officials to discuss the auditorium's facilities and believes they are suitable for symphonic events. The auditorium will have special acoustical features, rehearsal rooms and a large orchestra pit that can be hydraulically raised or lowered. The Pacific Terrace complex also will include a smaller concert hall with an 830-seat capacity, but it's designed primarily for lectures, musical recitals and theatrical events requiring smaller staging. Codicil I have a will that was drawn up by an attorney, but I would like to add a codicil to it. Can I do this on my own without hiring a lawyer? If so, must I have witnesses sign the document? B.O., Long Beach. An entirely handwritten, or holographic, codicil would be recognized in California and it would be probated along with the will that was drafted by a lawyer, said a local attorney. If the codicil is entirely handwritten, no witnesses are required, but if it's typed or drafted on a printed form, the document must be signed by two witnesses other than the named beneficiaries, the attorney added. Do-it-yourself wills and codicils should be dated and signed, and they should include a statement indicating that the document is indeed a will or a codicil. Fair question Can Action Line find out how I can enter some of my handiwork in the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona? F.W., Long Beach. . Entry blanks and explanatory rule books for fair contestants are available by writing to the Los Angeles County Fair P.O. Box 2250, Pomona, Calif. 91766.
