On trial was Richard Shaw, accused of the theft of a $250 midget auto racer in 1961. The trial began yesterday. Shaw, 18, was found guilty of the charge last year, but his conviction was reversed on an appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court. The h i g h court granted a new trial on the ground that the arresting officers failed to treat Shaw as a juvenile. He was then 17. ^HlbiL-'.' V \ '. 'fcA ' ·J.-^A^vi--'; 1 /-!

Guntner, he 28-year-old University of Arizona graduate student who s accused" of murdering his 16-month-old .stepdaughter. But Jacobsbn declared that, contrary to the position of he county attorney's office, he has the 'power to set bail r or a murder suspect "when he proof (of guilt) is not evident nor the presumption (of ;uilt) great."

Drawing the stiffest term was James D. Boyer, convicted by a Superior Court jury on five counts. He was ordered to serve 4 to 5 years in state prison and upon his re- ease spend iO years on probation. Boyer, 40,' of Douglas, massed five worthless checks :otaling $70 at a downtown department store last Dec. 19-20. He appeared before Judge John F. Molloy. Joseph D. Causey, who pleaded guilty to passing a worthless $25 check on March 2, and Gary Harden, who Dleaded guilty , to passing a worthless check for $33.79 on Dec. 15, were sentenced by Judge Herbert F. Krucker. Causey, 21, of Mullins, S.C., received a term of 2 to 4 years in state prison. Harden, 25, who gave his address as 224 E. Aviation Drive, was put on probation for two years. Drinking Report Was In Error In a story appearing in the Daily Citizen Saturday, it was erroneously indicated thai Larry Dietzman, 16, had been drinking with other teen-age boys preceding a fatal shoot ing April 16. .The story, concerning th sentencing of Larry Fitzpat rick to the State Industria School at Ft. Grant, said the shooting occurred as Joseph Bunton, the youth who was shot, and Dietzman, were walking away from the Fitz Patrick trailer after drinking tequila. Sheriff's office records anc prior news stories in the Cit izen indicate the Dietzman youth arrived on the seen subsequent to the drinkin^ and had not taken part in ii Man Seized In Theft Of Cement Mixers City detectives today ar rested a 41-year-old Tucso truck driver on a warran charging him with two count of grand theft. Larry D. Banta of 2127 IS Fair Oaks Aye., is accused o stealing cement mixers, on April 6 from 5602 E. Linde St., and the second April 2 from 4442 E. Blacklidge S STifcTE INSPECTOR FIRED hat bars me from setting bail t this time," the judge said. "My door remains operand will happily review this .jjji'at-. er once the Superior Court as ruled · on the important egal question of whether Sirs., Guntner can testify gainst her husband," he con- inued. · .,·? Defense attorney A. Alan Hanshaw and Deputy County Atty. Morton Freilich argued heir positions for nearly an lour before Jacobson ruled. A Superior Court hearing s set for Friday to determine if Mrs. Gunner can estify to events leading up o the death of her daughter, Sonia, about Jan. 29. Jacobson ruled April 17 hat the 18-year-old, Spanish- speaking mother could testi- y "because., in effect, a crime against the mother's child is the same as a crime igainst the mother." H a n s h a w immediately .ought the writ to keep 'acobson from hearing her estimony. Jacobson declared today he has "no doubt" that Hanshaw was correct in arguing: 1-That Guntner is bailable because "there is no proof of guilt evident nor any pre- Two At Tacna With Cattle YUMA -- JJPI-^Twb men 'were* charged with grand theft and a state cattle in- spectpr was dismissed from his job today as the result of a "cattle 'rustling" incident near Tacna April II. · Charged with the theft of cattle were John Sowards and Bob Ross, both of the Tacna area. The inspector waf identified as Tom Bowman of Roll. ·Yuma County investigators said Ross had admitted he and Sowards stole 14 head of sumption of guilt of a capital offense." 2--That the bail should be fixed at an amount reflecting not the seriousness of the crime charged but the "risk of the defendant skipping out of the state." Hanshaw said today that :he writ was intended only to bar Jacobson from hearing ;hat part of the case. But the ower court jurist held that the writ "lifted the whole thing out of my hands" and therefore, he could not set bail even though he said the defendant was entitled to bail. Hanshaw asked that the bail be set "between $5,000 and $10,000. Jacobson observed from the bench today that if Hanshaw is successful in Superior Court in barring the woman from the case, "the state'has no case and the defendant won't have to worry about bail . . . unless the state appeals the ruling, which it might." The Superior Court decision will almost certainly be appealed by the losing party to the state's highest court because the'degree of protection of one mate from testimony by the other has never been decided by the high tribunal, officials here say. Mrs. Guntner told authorities her husband mistreated the child by dropping her on her head and placing her in tubs of cold water. He was arrested March 29 after deputies found the girl's body buried in a shallow desert grave west of Three Points on the Ajo Road. Guntner reportedly admitted burying the child, authorities said, but denied responsibility for it? death. Saipan Hit, Flattened By Olive AGANA, Guam -- (#)-- A radio message from nearby Saipan Island today said Typhoon Olive, paqking 110-mile an hour winds, 'destroyed 95 per cent 'of the homes and nearly half the island's public buildings. The message said no deaths were reported. 'One person was injured as the devastating Pacific storm--the second to slam into the Mariana Islands in six months--flattened Saipan. Property damages were estimated at $2 million. All electrical p o w o r and telephone lines were bowled over and water s e r v i c e was knocked out, the message said. Saipan and Tinian Islands were struck by Olive late Tuesday after the storm dealt less damaging blows to Guam and Rota Island, also in the trust territory chain. Jose Benitez, deputy high commissioner for the Pacific trust territory, said he had asked President Kennedy to declare Saipan, Tinian and Rota disaster areas. This would prepare the way for federal assistance to repari storm damages. Demos Hear ACC Chairman Chairman A. P. Buzard, of the Arizona Corporation Commission, recalling past criticism of the commission, assured the South Side Young Democrats today that where reforms were needed, they were instituted. He was certain "that as time goes on the economy of our great state will be benefited" from more efficient procedures that have been adopted. Buzard assumed the commission chairmanship at the beginning of this year. Appearing with him before the Democratic club at Alfredo's Restaurant were some of his key staff members. They'were William Howe, of the Utilities Division; Rose Sandovai, long-time director of the Motor Carrier Division, arid Joe Sotelo, director of the Securities Division.
