PAGE 4 T U C S O N D A I L Y CITIZEN SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 4, I960 IDEA REVIVED Juvenile Detention Home At Marana Base Studied By MARGARET KUEHLTHAU i The possibility that Marana A i r ; Base can be used as an inter- i mediate institution for male juve-j nile offenders is being invests: gaied by members of the CITY] Committee (Citizens Interested in Tucson Youth). A preiiminary investigation of the base ha» been made by Wil-i liam A. Mitchell, chairman of j the committee; Lyman Foster, chief juvenile probation officer for i Pima County; and John McFar-l land, superintendent of the Juve-' nile Detention Home. The investigation was for i n - ; formational purposes only. If the idea proves sound, the CITY Com- ] mittee of the Tucson Community j Council will attempt to Interest \ \ the governor and the Legislature, i If the idea proves acceptable, ' it would be necessary to deal with ; the Final County Board of Super-; visors and the Beiser Aviation Corp. which now leases the facilities. During the recent session of the Legislature, the use of Marana Air Base as an intermediate institution was suggested by Slate Sens. H. S, (Hi) Corbett and David S. Wine, and State Reps. John Haugh and Arnold Elias, all of Pima County. The idea was abandoned when it was announced that Pan-American World Airways was negotiating for a lease of the facility. Pan-Am, however has leased space at the Tucson Municipal Airport and the CITY Committee is investigating the Marana base with the idea of reviving the plan to use it is a state juvenile detention center. A n intermediate i n s t i t u t i o n would allow juvenile offender* to j be segregated according to the; severity of offenses. It also would be used as a receiving and a i diagnostic center, and offenders | j could be kept at the intitution { '· until rehabilitated, it was pointed I out. i ! Marana Air Base was built dur- · \ ing World War II at the cost of j ' several million dollars. Its loca- j tion and physical plant ideally recommend it as a detention j i home, the CITY group feels. ! i One section contains 32 cottage- j I type dwelling units, a chape), ad- j ministration building, two large i classroom buildings, a hospital, I dining hall, clubhouse with swim- j ming pool and a hobby building. ! All are permanent concrete block ! buildings. I The other section contains two | i large hangars, a garage, machine j i shop and other similar buildings. UNDER «40,450 GRANT 69 High Schoolers To Do College Research At UA Flour MUls Now Arizona Mffling Co. Arizona Flour Mills will now be known as Arizona Milling Co., according to Joe T. Melczer, chairman of the board. It also was announced that Albert Lent Jr. of Tucson has been appointed vice president of the company and manager of the Tucson unit. Melczer said the name change was made in recognition of the increased volume of the company's production of animal and poultry feeds. Lent has been active in community and civic affairs. He was president of the Tucson Rotary Club last year and is a board member and budget committee chairman of the United Community Campaign, He also serves on the boards of the Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Sunshine Climate Club and Arizona Poultry Federation. Gordon (Jiggs) Lent has been appointed assistant manager of the Tucson unit. He is a graduate of the University of Arizona, as is Albert Lent, and holds a master's degree from the University of California. Apartment House Zone Designation Study Set The need for a special county designation for apartment house zoning will be discussed by County Planning Director A. M. Faure and Chief Civil Deputy County Atty. Marvin Cohen. They will report recommendations back to tht Planning and Zoning Commission at its June 28 meeting. It is Cohen's opinion that the present designation, CR-5, is not an adequate tool for apartment zoning since the designation also stands for five-homes-to-the-acre. CR-5 is usually used along major thoroughfares surrounding neighborhood units. The commission, however, fears that a small-lot interpretation, may be given in an area that otherwise may have only three-homes-to-the-acre as th» densest zoning. One approach to apartment zoning may be the placing of restrictions as to size, of lot. For example, if apartments were not built, residences would have to be located on 8,000-foot lots instead of 7,000 as presently allowed by CR-5. Or it's possible that a special designation, such as CR-10, might be used which would allow only the use of apartment houses. , LOOK FOR THE GOOD ONE --Citiztn Phott Coanterfeiteller, a display that gives bank patrons a chance to test their ability to recognize counterfeit bills, is now being shown at the Stone and Alameda office of the Bank of Douglas.

Boy Paddled; Action DefendedRy^Teaeher A complaint has been received by police that an 11- year-old boy was badly bruised during a paddling at tht Borton Elementary School. . - Principal Mrs. Mary Meredith yesterday defended the paddling action, stating the boy and another youth abused a 12-year-old girl on the way home from school Wednesday afternoon. "Their conduct could not: be overlooked We felt mat we should take care of it here rather than report the boys to juvenile authorities," Mrs. Meredith said. The boy told police he and another boy had asked the girl not to use foul language while walking home Wednesday afternoon. Then the boy said that on the next day the two were called to the principal's office and were told they would be paddled for striking the girl and using foul language in her presence. Thft boy also told police that he received 15 swat* with the paddle while he was being held. Mrs. Meredith said the boy was paddled by Leslie Prentiss Jr., a sixth grade teacher, while held by James Brogden, a fifth grade teacher. She added fiat tht boy was struggling and the teacher held him "so that his hands .would not be struck and injured during the paddling." Mrs. Meredith, who was present during the incident, said t paddle three-quarters of an inch thick and four, inches .wide, was used. . . ·· * Bicyclist Hurt Ramming Truck A M-year-old boy suffered a cut on his forehead yesterday evening when his bicycle crashed into « parked truck on Broadway near Rosemont Blvd. The youngster, Steve Beatty, 5458 E. 8th St., was treated at.
