Lee Bailey of Boston and bounty Atty. William J. Seha- :er III are on opposite sides in the trial of Charles H. Schmid Jr., but on at least one subject they are in ahnost complete agreement. Both believe that a' system providing for the "full disc l o s u r e of evidence before trial" should be incorporated into state criminal laws, reveal their evidence in the presence of the presiding trial judge. Bailey told the Citizen this Schafer proposed such a system last month, claiming that it would save courtroom time and provide a better over-all system of justice. He noted that under current civil procedures attorneys meet in a pre-trial conference and week he is in favor of "full-disclosure" because it would take the element of "surprise" completely out of most criminal proceedings. .

The speaker at the luncheon will be Mayor Lew Davis. Roger Hill is chairman of the Y o u t h Employment Service (YES) committee. The YES project js sponsored by the Sertoma clubs of Tucson working in cooperation with the Arizona State Employment Service. It is endorsed by the Tucson Youth Board and the Tucson Chamber of Commerce. The YES office this summer will be located at the Youth Employment Service office, 340 N. 6th Ave. Local employers and homeowners are urged to call the office to obtain young men and women interested in summer jobs. Typical jobs suitable for youth applicants are those of delivery boy, caddie, salesgirl, baby sitter, nurse aide, coun- tergirl, busboy, guide, porter, lifeguard, receptionist, cashier, telephone operator, engineering aide, survey worker, yardman, laborer, camp counselor, fry cook, usher, carhop, car washer, ticket taker, bellboy, tutor, and office clerk. and brokers concluded the market was in a corrective reaction that was to be expected after its long climb. The week's most significant economic developments came Friday, when the market fell to a sharp loss. The Federal Reserve Board reported output of the nation's m i n e s , mills and factories dropped slightly in April to its lowest level in 11 months. The board's index declined to 155.9 per cent of the 1957-59 average from 156.4 in March. Consulting economists of the business council, made up of leading industrialists, forecast the federal deficit may soar to $18 billion in fiscal 1968 instead of the $8.1 billion foreseen by President Johnson. In that case, they said, a tax surcharge would be desirable for both budgetary and anti-inflationary reasons. For the week the Dow Jones average of 30 industrials fell 15.93 points to 890.03. Of 1,605 issues traded last week, 664 advanced and 827 declined. Volume last week contracted to 52,382,110 shares from 54,714,380 the previous week. The market reached its recovery peak Monday when the Dow Jones industrials rose to 909.63. The five most active stocks on the New York Stock Exchange last week: Sperry Rand, off % at 3314 on 679,000 shares; Gulf Western Industries, up 3Vi at 54 7 /g; Kern County Land, up 21 J /4 at 84%; Occidental Petroleum, up % at 59%, and American Motors, off % at 10%.

His last publicly sold work, ''Mother and Child," went for $532,000 at an auction at Soth- eby's in London April 26. Sources in the art world said the investigation involves a still unnamed New York Dealer who allegedly sold some Picassos which the artist himself later pronounced forgeries. Others, allegedly sold by the same dealer, were okayed by Picasso and have been returned to the owners. About a dozen works, art sources said, are still in the hands of the district attorney. Since most authentications come from Paris, the French surete are understood to be conducting their own investigation. As many sales are conducted in London, Scotland Yard also has been looking into the possibilities of widespread frauds. Frauds have multiplied since World War II. A l t h o u g h prices had not reached today's astronomical figures in 1948, an exhibition called "authentic and fake" now at the Graham Galleries, showed the photograph of a painting, allegedly by Matisse which a dealer tried to sell Dr. and Mrs. Milton Berliner of New York at that time. T h e f a m o u s artist h a c scrawled across the back of the photograph -- sent him for authentication -- "this picture .is grossly false The picture is definitely a forgery." The Berliners did not buy but they kept the autographed photograph. Many museums throughout he land submitted examples of akes in their collections -- ome ruefully admitting they ad been stung and others flowing they had both the orig- nal and later copies. Some, ke Manhattan's Whitney, had eliberately acquired phonies or their educational value. William Bright Jones, art :onnoisseur who arranged the exhibit, paid special tribute to the Philadelphia Museum of Art which made available the greatest single collection of akes on display. The Philadelphia, then the Pennsylvania, held the firsl such exhibition of forgeries in 1916. Other museums which displayed their fakes included the institute of Fine Arts, New York University;'the Brooklyn Museum; the Museum of Mod' ern Art. the University ot VI i a m i ; the Art Museum Princeton University; the Mu seum of Primitive Art (New York); Fogg Art Museum, Har vard University and the Amer ican Museum of Natural His tory.

DIAL 624-55X1 Goulder Dam Bill Unpaid, Suit Claims A Pennsylvania firm, claiming it is owed money for drilling and grouting work at Golder Dam, has filed a $136,041 complaint against the Rail^-Ranch Corp. Pennsylvania Drilling Co. claims in the Superior Court suit filed yesterday that the vork was completed according ;o agreement on Aug. 20. Rail-N-Ranch, a development near 'Oracle, has refused to pay a $61,897 bill due for the work the firm contends. In addition, the suit states, Pennsylvania Drilling has been approached by Diamond Alkali Io. for a $74,144 payment on materials used in the work. The materials were to have aeen paid for' by the Rail- N-Ranch Corp., according to the suit. Sal Spinelli Assault Case Dismissed Assault charges against Salvatore Spinelli and Robert T. Smith have been dismissed by Justice of the Peace Toby La- Vetter. Deputy County Atty. Stanley Paschal said yesterday he could not proceed with the prosecution as one of the main witnesses could not be located and a second refused to return to Arizona. Spinelli and Smith were accused of beating John A. Norton, 34, and Jarret N. Cohan 28, boh of Los Angeles, at the Doll House, 3143 E. Speedway Blvd., last March. The articulate trial lawyer aid "lack of discovery" is the siggest problem in the nation's courts today. Schafer said that under cur- ent criminal law, the state must give the defense a list of ts witnesses and allow exam- nation of "physical evidence." Although the prosecution exposes a great deal of its case at a preliminary hearing, he noted, the state is by no means duty-bound to reveal all of its facts before trial. Bailey, who gained a retrial in the Dr. Sam Sheppard murder case and then won an acquittal for the Cleveland osteo- j path and is generally regarded as one of the top trial lawyers in the country, said the defense has always had a great deal of difficulty in getting "at the facts before trial." Asked if he thought "full disclosure" would help the defense more than the prosecution, he frankly replied: "I think it would probably help the defense more." The one point that Bailey and Schafer disagree on is Schafer's belief that a defendant must give up his Fifth Amend- ment privilege (the right to avoid self-incriminatkm) if "full disclosure" is to work. "For the idea to mean anything at all," Schafer asserts, "we would simply have 'to know what the defendant's story is going to be. "In short, he gives up hit Fifth Amendment privilege k find out what the prosecution's case is going to be." Bailey feels this is wrong because it would depive an individual of one of his basic rights under the U.S. Constitution.
