Marks when informed that the high court had ruled against the state in a case involving a Globe youth. "Marks'said he was. not sur, prised; that; the.ruling[.was in livpr bf Gerald F. Gault, who : as a 15 year-old in 1964 w a s sent Jto ithe s t a. t e Industria .; School f6r)Boys at Ft.

Gila County Juvenile Cour ^sentenced.Gault to a maximum ~ of six yeaVs after the boy ad ;, mitted making the calls. - Although he was paroled afte ix inonths, Mr. and Mrs. Paul V. Gault .decided to make an is- ue of the case with the backing f the American Civil Liberties fnion. ...-'Arizona Supreme Court upheld the lower court actions a an opinion which declared: 'The juvenile court stands in the position of a protecting parent rather than a prosecutor,". The case then, was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Marks said he foresees one roblem in meeting the. news requirements for handling juveniles -- providing transcripts of their court sessions. 'It's going to be quite : expensive to hire court reporters for all the juvenile cases,", he said. In addition, Marks said, giving juveniles the right to appeal a decision will be another major departure from present procedures. He said other basic standards set by the Supreme Court already are in practice here ' · He and Paul Charters, assistant chief juvenile probation of Drastically ficer, were most concerned about whether the ruling will apply to handling of non-criminal cases. \ "The juveniles we see now fall into five 'separate categories,'* Marks pointed out. 'Besides those accused of a criminal act, we deal with delinquent, dependant, neglected and incorrigible juveniles." The present "referee" system of handling all cases probably will not be altered except for children accused of crimes, Marks said. Under the referee system, aymen are appointed by the juvenile judge to hear cases for him.

Mollowy noted that there ave been no recent deaths mong local law officers in the ine of duty. .That does not present those men presently serv- rig as officers from carving a monument- to their profession, past and future, through their icroic deeds, he said. 'In 1966, one police · officer was killed on duty every four days," Molloy.said. "Most were murdered by ielons. It takes courage to perform your daily duty in face of statistics like these. "It is significant that no Tucson police officers have been killed. The reason is the fine training these men are receiving. 1 " ' · v , The " observance ·...·yiras spon sored by the .Tucson Lodge Fraternal Order of Police. case Charters noted that in most cases, where juveniles have been given the chance to be tried in adult court, they have chosen to remain under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court. "I wonder if the ruling allows for a double system, where the juvenile has a choice about which court he goes to" he said. "If not, the question of who is going to prosecute these cases arises. Will the county attorney? Who's going to-pay for all the extra people we'll need, and the transcripts? A vast majority of the juveniles referred to us cannot afford an attorney," Charters said. He also questioned what might happen if, in the process of appealing a juvenile court decision, a youth reaches his 18th birthday. "The juvenile funds," O'Mara explained. "Most years, we do this out of bond funds." City Water Director Paul Eeermann said, "The main reason is that we don't have the money" and pointed out that revenues this year have not been as great as expected. This will mean, Beermann said, a cutback in improvements such as extension of fire hydrant services. The adopted budget this year for major improvements was $2.37 million. Departmental requests on which the new budget is based show only $837,000 for major improvements. that the flight of professors fo | higher salaries elsewhere is be coming constantly more cal. "I'm talking about an atti- ude of legislative leaders rath- than : promises," Chambers I believe they appre- aid. "But :iate the fact that we have a rery highly competitive prob- em in maintaining top grade acuity. "Our situation is critical. We not only have competition with schools in other states that pay more but also industries and jovernment are jdrawing away our faculty at higher salaries. "I should add that even if the legislature's attitude is reflected in next year's budget, it is going to take several years to close the gap between our schools and the others." Chambers said that the regents will take a budget to the legislature next year with a "substantial raise for teachers." "We cannot afford to continue to lose our teachers at the present turnover of 8 to 9 per cent reported at the UA and ASU," said Chambers. In telling, 'he regents of 67 resignations since the last board meeting, Harvill said "It's tragic to see some t h e s e brilliant young men leave." A $75,786 c o n t r a c t was awarded today to L.
