V4-INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) !.«*« tftrtt- t»H., TKlrv. ft*. V. 1W SLICK (Continued from Page A-l) area to try to rope with the new leak. A week ago. Hickel authorized Union's activation of fivr wells in what was described as an effort to "relieve pressure" on the. channel floor. It was one of those which sprang a new leak Monday. Late Wednesday, Hickel said he would permit no further offshore drilling in the Santa Barbara area until convinced "that ihe disaster that happened won't rehappen." -- Alan Cranston, California's junior senator, said Wednesday he will propose legislation banning all offshore drilling in the Santa Barbara Channel. "Neither national nor state interests can be served by continuation of oil- drilling and production." he said. The new leak -- in Well A-41 -- apparently came when a procedure designed to seal off the channel entry point misfired, producing the opposite '. effect. The new leaky well is located on the same shelf as A-21. which spurted oil for 11 days and. left a wake covering SOO''square miles. In the Santa Barbara area, local officials renewed their attacks on the offshore drilling. Most of them maintain that geological conditions off Santa Barbara are so unstable that any f u t u r e drilling would run the risk of repeating the oil leak tragedies. Earlier entreaties from Santa Barbara officials were met. with the same responses from federal agencies; any halt in the Santa Barbara drilling would cost, the U.S. $600 million in leases already paid by Union and some other companies to operate Santa Barbara Channel wells. The flow of the latest oil slick to Southland beaches could produce powerful allies for the Santa Barbara officials in the form of representatives of Los Angeles, Santa Monica and other affected areas. Union spokesmen said that crews were still attempting to plug the latest leak with a compound of drilling mud combined with cement. Oil Pollution oi Porl Prevented A threat that crude, black oi! would spill into the harbor at Wilmington Wednesday was prevented when Los Angeles Harbor Division firemen hastily threw up dikes and called for vacuum trucks to suck up the oil. Firemen and stale Department of Fish and Game officials said a 10- inch pipeline was under a pressure test by Mobil Oil Co. when it burst, sending up a six-inch geyser of oil in: the 300 block of South Neptune Avenue. 10-Story Fall K i l l * One. Injurpj* Another NEW YORK (/PI -- A window washer at t h e U.S. mission to the United Nations fell 10 floors to his death Wednesday when one end of an electric scaffold collapsed, pitching him and his partner to a courtyard. The other man was injured seriously. Police identified flip dead man as James Dorset. 40. of Manhattan. They said Colson .Jonas, 39, of Brooklyn was lakr-n to Beilevue Hospital in critical condition. RESCUE WORKERS PROBE THROUGH DEBRIS OF SILVERADO CANYON FIRE STATION Grim Search Continues for Six Flood Refugees Missing, After 11 Were Found Dead in 'Sanctuary' --AP Wirepholo UC Pickets STORM AFTERMATH Tot Killed r* J* rri «i Hiding 1 rike o Into Street March on City Hall BERKELEY Wl -Striking University of California students extended l h e i r demonstrations Wednesday from campus to City Hall. More t h a n 350 Third World Liberation Front followers marched to downtown Berkeley to protest Municipal Court arraignment of 104 persons arrested in campus outbreaks since Jan. 22. The parade was orderly. Earlier on the campus, a gasoline fire bomb was thrown into Haviland Hall. Campus policeman Richard Smith quickly tossed Ihe missile back through a smashed window. There was little' damage. A witness said the bomb thrower fled i n t o a wooded section of the campus. The bomb came after a strike leaders threat to close the u n i v e r s i t y "whether by striking peacefully or whether we have to burn the s.o.b. down." Meanwhile, university authorities ordered five students off the campus under the regents' new rule banning agitators. Berkeley campus officials declined to identify the five students who were put on interim suspension for violating campus rules earlier this week. Ask Study of Harbor Pollution By .TACK O. BALDWIN Maritime Editor A l.os Angeles City Council committee, twice requested by the harbor d e p a r t m e n t to support a state-conducted prohe of harbor w a t e r pollution, finally agreed an investigation is a good idea. So Ihe committee instructed the d e p a r t m e n t Wednesday 10 launch i t s mvn. In some quarters, the action by t h e Public Health and Welfare Committee was decried as "sending the fox to guard the chickens." The three-man committee asked the harbor department to determine the extent and cause of pollution, what steps the city should lake to provide clean water in t h e harbor, t h e costs to correct t h e s i t u a t i o n and who should pay such costs. Lawrence Whitencck, chief harbor engineer, claimed the committee was asking the harbor department to do what the stale is required to do. "The harbor department is not. in a position to es- l a b 1 i s h water-quality s t a n d a r d s . " Whiteneck said. "Standards for these waters should and must he based on fact--not desires." Bernard .1. Caughlin, porl general manger, expressed (louhl. since the pollution problem is so complex that, a report could be ready w i t h i n fiO days a f t e r t h e hearing.

Many remained overnight, but most went w i t h relatives or friends. Six women were taken HI ihe Orange County Medical Center Wednesday from the a i r l i f t . THE STORMS which slammed i n t o Orange County dealt the most damaging blow of the century. Creeks and streams everywhere became raging rivers. The mountain creeks and streams feed inlo Irvine Lake behind Santiago Dam -- and it was full from the January storms. Millions of gallons of water tumbled over the spillways, swelling Santiago Creek below and soon filling Villa Park Dam. Below that structure, the creek broke its banks, destroying three apartment houses in Orange and battering a dozen residences there and in Santa Ana. Some were lost. "The damages will soar into the millions of dollars." Chief Osterman said. He paid high tribute to hundreds of volunteers who helped in the emergency. * * * * THE STORMS have broken water lines and sewer lines and many beaches have been quarantined. Dr. John Philp quarau- l i n e l Laguna Reach s t r a n d and Aliso Beach at South Laguna. Breaks in sewer lines contaminated both areas, Orange County health officer said. · Also quarantined were West Newport and Doheny Beach. All water service to Silverado. Modjeska and Santiago Canyons has been broken. MORE RAIN was due Friday, but in light a m o u n t s for what weathermen called the "tapering end" of the seemingly-interminable downpour. The weekend should be "nice and sunny," they said. The mudslide in Silverado Canyon and a slide at Mount Baldy which wiped out f o u r members of a family in a cabin were the major dealers of death. Three other isolated deaths thus far have been discovered. Meanwhile, the search for more bodies and rescue efforts for some still stranded goes on. A 60-man patrol on snowshoes and helicopters from George Air Force Base began an extensive search for four Explorer Scouts and their adult leader missing since Saturday in San Bernardino County. Blizzards in the area near Green Valley Lake, north of R u n n i n g Springs, have prevented a major search prior to Wednesday. HELICOPTERS w e r e brought inlo use in at- tcmpls to rescue a couple and their four children 1 rapped in a cabin in Chantry Flats in Big Santa A n i t a Canyon. 2 Fliers Rescued From Sierra Snow LF.MOORK NAS (UPl) -- Two Navy fliers whose plane crashed high in t h e snowy Sierras near Mt. Whitney Tuesday were flown to safety Wednesday by an Army helicopter. Sheriff's ground units started a trek up Angeles Crest Highway to bring out about 50 persons stranded in a ski lodge at Kralka Ridge in Los Angeles County. Searchers found t h e frozen body of Mrs. Sarah Laurel Painter, 58-year-old West Covina woman, in her car buried by snow on Highway 38 in the Big Bear area. D e p u t i e s said h e r daughter, Mrs. Irene Klisz of South Gate, walked 16 miles for help after the car stalled in the snow Monday night. After an all-night walk, she reached a telephone to call deputies at Big Bear Tuesday morning. But rescuers were unable to reach the car until eight hours later. Officials at the Ventura Marina, where 150 vessels were s u n k .or damaged when the Santa Clara River surged into the anchorage, said the loss may reach more than $4 million to the boats and harbor. FULLBACK (Continued from Page A-l) miles and the Dunaway car more than 29,000 miles, he said. "Investigation disclosed the Hunt car had suffered severe damage to the forward underside, i n c l u d i n g damage to the forward parts of the exhaust system, when it struck a bump the day before the deaths occured," the spokesman said. "Inspection of the Dunaway car showed the exahnst pipe was rusted through near the end." The recall involved more than twice as many vehicles as the largest previous recall. The previous record recall had been set three years ago, in February of 1966. when GM's Chevrolet Division recalled 1.8 million 1965 models to install splash shields to prevent freezing slush from jamming the throttle in an open position. THE PRESENT recall campaign was triggered by 30 reported cases in which exhaust fumes "were claimed to be entering the cars," and 48 cases in which the carburetor fast-idle cam failed on the quadra-jet carburetor, GM said. From September of 1966 u n t i l the present recall was announced, GM recalled a total of 2.7 million vehicles. GM said | only 4.5 per cent of the j 2.7 million "were suspected of having a defect." The 2.4 million Chevrolets in the current recall included certain Biscayne, Rel Air, Impala and Caprice models for the years 1965 through 1968, and 38,000 of this year's models with optional 350 cubic-inch engines. "The possible entry of exhaust emissions into certain of the Chevrolet models involved, occurs only when the exhaust pipe is substantially out of design position or deteriorated from use," GM said. Three conditions had to exist to allow fumes into the ear -- "a neglected exhaust system, the development of a nearby body opening and a negative air pressure in the interior," GM said. Debbie Sherbondy, 4, of Ififtt Marshall Place, was killed Wednesday when struck by n car as she rode her tricycle into the street from b e h i n d a parked car, Long Beach police said. The child had been riding on Walnut Avenue near M a r s h a l l Place a n d wheeled suddenly out into the roadway. She was struck by a car driven by Martha Heminger, of 1307 E. 37th St., who said she had no opportunity to apply her brakes before striking the child. She was not held or cited. The child was reported dead on arrival at Memorial Hospital at 1:15 p.m. TRUSTEES (Continued from Page A-l) by Louis 11. Heilbron, chairman of the trustees committee, and Frank D. Dollard for the San Francisco State administration, constituted "appeasement" of the strikers. Th trustees noted a so-called victory statement issued by the union upon conditional acceptance of ihe settlement last Monday. Gov. Reagan said the letter had been "distorted to indicate capitulation" by the trustees. Reagan said a widespread impression had been created that negotiations took place and capitulation was the result. Trustee Dudley Swim com ended San Francisco Mayor Joseph Alioto had made "political capital" out of the settlement. * * * * HEILBRON, however, insisted there was no capitulation. "If there's anything the l e t t e r doesn't constitute, it's appeasement," he said. Earlier in the day the trustees authorized state college presidents to require teachers to certify their own attendance on their jobs "in such form and detail as the president shall prescribe." The move, an amendment to the State Administrative Code, may supplant the honor system for attendance at the option of the various presidents. It was taken in reaction to developments at San Francisco State College and San Jose State where difficulty arose in establishing attendance of professors during faculty strikes. The new order will go into effect March 1, the trustees ruled at the meeting at state college headquarters here. The attendance regulation was offered by Swim of Carmel and was approved unanimously by all Alioto, Unruh Hit Reagan on Strike ;APRAMENTO (UPl) -- San Francisco Mayor Josoph AH* o Wednesday charged Cov. Ronald Reagan . : ?u .,, 1 ,,, "«,hn. a t-s" the agreement aimed al end- this highly desirable me that he would sabo- with trying to "sabotage" the agi ing the teachers strike at San Francisco Stale College. Assembly Democratic Leader Jess M. Unruh also sharply criticized Reagan's reject of the tentative agree- mcnt as "only worsening the situation. Allow made his angry remark at an impromptu news conference outside a legislative hearing room m the state Capitol. "After a very representative committee of trustees worked so hard "to bring about agreement, it is incredible to tage it." Reagan rejected the proposal to end the six-week strike Tuesday on the basis that it contained illegal provisions. 1 * * * * ALIOTO SAID BOTH REA(iAN and state schools chief Max Rafferly used "cowboy lalk" about teacher strikes. He defined "cowboy talk" as that "which you get from people who wear guns on their sides and will, sometimes and somehow, repudiate the rules of reason' and the role of negotiations in the role of American af- Alioto showed reporters a copy of a Dec. 15 telegram from College Trustees Chairman Theodore Meriam to San Francisco labor leader George Johns. Alioto said the wire constituted authority for the trustees to "negotiate grievances" with the teachers. He said Reagan waited eight weeks before declaring his opposition to the talks. Unruh called a news conference to announce Assembly Democrats in caucus "officially welcomed the settlement worked out by nonpartisan mediators at San Francisco State." "Misrepresentations and h a l f - t r u t h s , " he said, "can only serve to worsen the situation." U n r u h .said rejection of the agreement with the teachers "would almost represent an invitation to resume and escalate the b i t t e r s t r i f e which we've seen on thai campus for four months." trustee committees. Approval was expected from the full board. In other action, the board's Educational Policy Committee recommeded making it a misdemeanor for students to violate "reasonable regulations" regarding the time, place and manner in which they use college facilities. SAN FRANCISCO (UPl) -- The Council of Academic Deans at San Fran- cisco SliiK; College said Wednesday the school ad-ministration "is prepared to negotiate with student strikers regarding disciplinary proceedings." In contrast to mass marches of the past months, fewer t h a n 30 students and teaching assistants picketed on" the campus Wednesday while the rest of the .18,000 students hustled back and forth to classes. \ \ \ " H JEWELERS S SELLS BIG DIAMONDS Than You Would Normally Expect To Pay WE IMPORT OUR DIAMONDS DIRECT FROM THE CUTTERS-WE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OUR DIAMOND RINGS-WE ELIMINATE ALL MIDDLEMEN PROFITS.
