Slot machines are back in widespread use in Cochise County but are generating little interest from either the public o r l o c a l l a w enforcement agencies. ' This reporter found 10 of the one-armed bandits in Sierra Vista and Huachuca City where soldiers and citizenry generally ignore them and heard reports "of "a lot .nore machines in use in Benson and Willcox." The past weekend a tour of the bars showed slot machine at Sammy's Restaurant Cocktail Lounge, Kelly's Bar, Bill's Trading Post and the Mil- tary Inn in Sierra Vista and at ,he Star Dust in Huachuca City. Generally the machines pay off in free games. These, however, can be traded for a nickel a game. The slot machines in use are sophisticated electric cousins of the old-type one-arm bandits, but the gambling principle is still the same. Asked about the open use of machines, Cochise County Un- dersheriff Ron Alexander said Cardella Named State Senator By DICK CASEY Citizen Political Writer Ken Cardella today was appointed by the Board of Supervisors to succeed the late Thomas Beaham as Republican state senator from District 7E. The appointment ended more than a week of speculation over who would succeed Beaham, who died May 3 after a long . illness. Cardella, 35, currently is Tucson manager for Bankers Life Insurance Company of Iowa at 2343 E. Broadway. The new senator attended the University of Arizona from 1951 until 1955 and starred as a halfback for the Wildcat football teams of 1951-52-53. He graduated in 1955 with a degree in industrial management. After graduation, Cardella was employed by Union Oil of California, followed by four years with the U. S. Air Force as pilot for Military Air Transport Service. After completing his miltiary duty, Cardella joined American Airlines as' a pilot until 1960 when he returned to Tucson. "I am eager and enthusiastic for the opportunity to assist in the programs started this year by the Republican-controlled legislature," Cardella said. Since Beaham was a Republican, his successor had to be a Republican. , Prior to today's appointment, considerable infighting had oc- This Week $ 350 Citizen Charlie's crossword See Page 22 today, "Whether or not they are against the law depends on a payoff. I'd rather think they are not doing that." Sierra Vista Police Chief Reed Vance said "Listen, I'm not going to lie to you. I know they have the machines. We have a complete record of all the machines down here. But unless we see a payoff, there is no violation." Jack Sheik, superintendent of the State Department of Liquor Licenses Control, said his office had been given a notice concerning the machines from State Atty. Gen. Darrell Smith. But Sheik added that his office has taken no action since they have not received a request for help by local law enforcement agencies in Cochise County. ''Unless we do receive such a request, we don't get into the picture," he said. William Eubank, assistant state attorney general, said, "AH we did was receive an anonymous letter from a person who said they had knowledge of slot machines in Cochise County. We sent a copy of the letter to Sheik's office and to the sheriff in Cochise County and asked them to look into it. We have no power to order an investigation." Smith noted that under state statutes criminal prosecution is primarily the responsibility of the county attorney. His office could not become involved unless requested by the county Jury Panel For Schmid Doubtful By STEVE EMERINE Citizen Staff Writer The possibility that no jury c a n be selected here for Charles Howard Schmid Jr.'s first-degree murder trial in the death of Alleen Rowe grew stronger today as screening of potential jurors ,went into its Courts Face fourth day.

Part of it centered around a list of four names submitted to the supervisors by the Pima C o u n t y Republican Central Committee. Cardella was not one of these. As many as 15 names were mentioned publicly for the job at one time or another. Cardella resides at 4250 E. Cooper St., with his wife, the former Sharon Townsend, and their two children.

'68 Deficit Could Hit $24 Billion WASHINGTON, (UPI)^-Treasury Secretary Henry H7 Fowler said today the 1968 budget deficit, originally estimated to be $8.1 billion, might run as high as $24 billion, partly because of soaring Vietnam war costs. Fowler made the statement in asking Congress to raise the national debt limit to a permanent level of $365 billion --$29 billion more than the present temporary ceiling of 1336 billion that expires the end of next month. v The secretary at first told the House Ways and Means Committee, which originates tax measures, that the fiscal 1968 deficit would be $11 billion. But later he conceded it could rise to as much as $24 billion. lected, but defense attorneys F. Lee Bailey and William H. Tinney Jr. have asked that 18 of them be re-examined. Bailey originally asked Friday that the first 14 prospective jurors who qualified be re-examined. Today, however, Bailey extended that to 18 on the grounds that Friday's Tucson Daily Citizen and today's Arizona Daily Star printed the "specific grounds for disqualification of jurors." Bailey said he would subpoena scripts from weekend television and radio newscasts to see if they also reported the information. Superior Court Judge Richard N. Roylston took Bailey's motion today under advisement. In addition, Bailey already has challenged all 19 of the potential jurors selected -- 18 on the grounds that they know of Schmid's prior conviction and death sentence for the murders of Gretchen and Wendy Fritz and the 19th on the grounds that although she didn't know of the Fritz case now, she would before the trial begins. Roylston has denied Bailey's challenges on this point. Friday, Roylston also deniec a defense motion for a mistrial EVERYBODY CAL1622-5855 rand change of venue. But the judge indicated at that time he might grant a similar motion this week if it appears impossible to select a 41-member panel from the 125 persons originally summoned. Roylston last week ordered the 125 potential jurors to refrain from reading or listening to reports on the case. He said, however, that he fears that any additional persons called for jury duty will have read or heard news reports of the current court proceedings and probably be eligible for challenge as jurors because of this. The judge used this as a reason in making two separate requests of newsmen covering the jury selection to refrain from going into detail about the questions put to prospective jurors and theFr answers. Should Bailey successfully disqualify the 18 potential ju rors he has asked to have re examined, the number of panel ists selected would drop to onlj one of the first 63 persons in terviewed. With this low percentage, i would seem unlikely that 40 po tential jurors could be pickei from the remaining 60 or s persons to be interviewed, cour observers agreed today.

SENATOR FEARS: U.S. Vietnam Expansion Could Bring On War III WASHINGTON ( A P ) - Sen. J o h n S h e r m a n Cooper, R-Ky.. said today an expansion of American military might in Vietnam may bring Red China into the war and lead to World War III. His remarks were in a prepared Senate speech. Cooper, a member of the Senat foreign relations committee and a former ambassador to j India, said the history of Korea | i n d i c a t e s that t h e Chinese the United States should "confine and restrain its bombing -if bomb it must -- to infiltration routes near the demilitarized zone." He said if this met with an "affirmative response" from the north then the bombing of North Vietnam should be suspended.

Nor would this new attempt to achieve negotiations be as dangerous as an increased involvement by the Soviet Union, and the greater peril of World War III. "We cannot assume that the turmoil and struggle in Communist China will prevent it from intervening," he said. "Seventeen years ago China belied our similar assumption and went to the aid of the neighboring Communist state, North Korea.

The landmark decision is certain to lead to broad reformation of juvenile court proceedings across the land. The vote was 8 to 1, with three of the justices in the majority differing with the controlling opinion, given by Justice Abe Fortas, in some re- pec ts. The dissenter was Justice Potter Stewart. Using an Arizona juvenile case as a springboard, the court concluded that juveniles, like adults, are entitled to the f o l l o w i n g BUI of Rights safeguards: 1. Notice of the charges placed against them. 2. The right to have an attorney's assistance. 3. The right to c6nfront and cross examine complainants and other witnesses. 4.

"Neither the Bill of Rights nor the U.S. Constitution is for adults only," he declared dramatically from the bench. Fortas' majority opinion, a little more than 55 pages long, traced juvenile court history, and the largely informal procedures followed by juvenile court judges in dealing with youngsters accused of crimes. He noted that the informality stems from the concept that the state was considered as a sort of substitute parent, with the judge careful to protect the child from the strict procedures f o l l o w e d when adults are charged with crime. The court acted on an appeal in the case of 15-year-old Gerald Gault, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Gault, of Globe. He was committed to the State Industrial School at Ft. Grant in 1964 after being accused of placing lewd telephone calls.

GENEVA ( A P ) -- The Kennedy Round negotiations appeared to have run into difficulties again today, leaving up in the talks for lowering tariffs. The negotiators failed to meet the deadline they had set themselves Sunday night and four major participants met this morning. But after less than half an hour all four stor med out of the shabby villa consultations with Eric Wyndham-White, the British director- leneral of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade which administers the Kennedy nuuiiu serving as a center of the talks. Looking angry and excited, they drove back to their delegations. William Roth of the United States, Jean Rey of the Common Market, Sir Richard Powell of Britain and Ambassador Morio Aoki of Japan met for He presented a compromise package plan for balanced worldwide tariff cuts, which he and his near-exhausted staff of assistant? worked out during the early hours of the morning. The United States and the Common Market were still as Ear apart as ever on the controversial issue of chemical import duties and the American systtm of calculating tariffs. There still was no definite agreement on the American plan for a food-aid scheme. Chou 6 Ready v To Pour Men Into Hanoi CHICAGO (UPI) -- Premier Chou En-lai says Communist China is "ready--tomorrow if need be"--to send an avalanche of volunteers into North Vietnam to help fight in the war. All Hanoi has to do Is ask, Chou said. Chou was quoted today in the New York Daily News in ih« first of a copyrighted series of interviews with five major Chinese Communist leaders. He vowed to send his armies into Vietnam if North Vietnam is threatened with invasion or a "sellout peace."
