Simplified tests and counselors at the school will help persons with alcohol prob : lems. Programs operated through West Center will be available for those who need additional · help after the classes. McCabe emphasized that West Center has no connection with the school's operations. ,, Losing a driver's license will be an added incentive for perfect attendance at the school, Casanova said. Assignments to the school began Jan. 25. "It will make a better impression on the people," Casanova said, "if the class is held in the courtroom. "We want to help overcome the problem of drunken drivers and keep them off the road." £ity ready |opOOth Jbirthday ^Committee ^ to begin.work ·v Tucson[officially .will begin. ^jlanning ill 200th birthday cel- .:;^ebration when-the-City Council ·-jffqnday'.establishes., the city's ^irthdate : and the"comiittee to.'Splan the year-long party. ;u The, Tucson Historical Coni- ·^mittee will coordinate activi- 4;ties fqjkTucsoh which will be- ·^%iii a$IB?lefore the National 5-picentei^i;Geleibratipn. : The. ^councjMoHJially will acknow- *iedge^Aug~ 20, 1775, as the »iity!s fouling date. t~The cjj^cil Monday also £mU consider, leasing space for *a ; North SSBt Ward 3 City Hall. iJiecomnfflffled is : a;952 square~foot suite-dn the Fort Lowell J ~Pi;ofessil«*l Plaza, 1735 E. -Fort LoW Road.

Two groups designed to aid Tucson young people 'have decided to forget their differences and become on organization. News Capsules Livestock prices to stay high T WASHINGTON (UPI) -- Backing up earlier forecasts of ·higher meat prices this year,. Agriculture Department econo- ^nists today predicted that livestock prices in the first six months of 1973 will continue record-high, well above year-earlier ievels^p overall forecast was offered for the second half of the -year,- bilt-the report pointed to some relief for consumers from icuiTentoieordpork prices. Prices for cattle will continue "relatively htglV' the report said, and are not expected to change ·much from current record levels through June although "occasional soft spots" will develop. The city-sponsored Tucson Youth and'Delinquency Prevention . Council and the private Tucson Youth Board agreed yesterday to join forces as a Tucson Communi- · ty Council' subdivision called the-Metropolitan : Youth Council (MYC): ;; : : .Conflict between the two groups came to a head last year when the city government ended.financial support. for the youth board, handing over the board!s scheduled 515,000 allocation to the'Youth and Delinquency Prevention Council. . '. ·.; But in an effort aimed at consolidating their projects on behalf of local young people, the groups decided at the meeting yesterday to merge as o f July 1 . · · · ' · . B'urt Rotter, an 18-year-old University' of Arizona student who heads the currrently city- sponsored council, said that in effect the two groups are now one, although, the formal merger won't be accomplished for five months. Rotter said the city would contribute $30,000 to the new organization during the next fiscal year. A federal grant of $45,000 also is expected to be awarded the MYC, he said. The MYC wiR have offices in the Tucson Community Council services building, 3833 E. 2nd St., and will be administered by a 25-member executive board. · ' Nine members will come' from Rotter's group, five from the youth board and the remainder will, be persons not ·affiliated with either group. · Torch fires hit schools Money market turmoil continues I BONN (AP) -- West Germany is trying to head off another round of currency revaluations by taking a series of severe jsteps to halt a flood of speculative U.S. dollars into the country. t ·At an emergency cabinet meeting last night, the government IffillflJl ordered a ban on the purchase of West German stocks by for- * ^«^ l '*'ttlt Signers. The turmoil in the.money markets is coming from speculators^ who feel currency exchange rates are no longer ·realistic. But Germany does not want a revaluation. That would mean its goods yould be more expensive in the rest of the world and would feed Germany's domestic inflation. Airline fined in Hartke cage · WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The government has fined Delta lAirlines^ $2,000 for lettin Sen, Vance Hartke, D-Ind., board a 3'etlineiwithout passing through an anti-hijacking screening de- Vice.

A court here ruled that the film about two lovers in no way offended morals and should be released. An appeal was filed by prosecutor Gino Paolo Latini, but the film \yill be shown while the verdict is appealed. Jail sentences for the defendants and a permanent ban on the film had been sought. Fires set by arsonists in two Tucson schools have resulted in more than $7,000 in damages and the- arrest of four juveniles, police reported. · The four youths were taken into custody early this morning and charged with burglary and arson after they allegedly set fire to six classrooms at Flowing Wells Junior High School, 3710 N. Caballero Road. Police said the juveniles took^hree tape recorders and caused- other damages, although an estimate was not available. The youths were turned over to Pima County juvenile authorities. In an apparently unrelated incident at the Arizona Training Center for- the Handicapped; 308 W. Glenn St., fire department officials reported an arsonist used paper and lighter fluid to start a blaze . that resulted in $7,000 damage to the building and its contents. An investigation is continuing but police have made no arrests. , . Yesterday morning, an em- ploye at the Haskell Linen Supply Co., 301 S. Park Ave., reported an arsonist set a small fire in a wastebasket there. Joe Pina, 1926 W. Grant Road, said' ..he attempted to stop the man who set" the fire,but the suspect 'escaped after .throwing a bucket of bleach in Pina's face. Teams build wall to halt lava flow Schmid guilty of escape , Kidnap charge fails to stick FLORENCE (AP) - A Final County Superior Court jury ·has convicted three-time slayer Charles H. Schmid Jr.,of escaping from the Arizona State Prison, but found him innocent. on three cf four counts of kidnaping. · The jury, which' was unable to decide on a fourth kidnap- ing count, had been deliberating since yesterday afternoon, and the court bailiff announced the verdict at about midnight. Schmid had been charged in connection with an escape Nov. 11 with another three- time killer, Raymond Hudgens. Schmid was captured three days later in a train yard near S. Country Club Road and Aviation Highway on Tucson'i south side,' after; a railroad employe -- a former ^clasa- mate of Schmid -- reported seeing him walking along -the tracks. · \ Hudgens has been returned to Arizona to face, similar charges, after being captured in Hemet, Calif., last month. , The kidnaping charges stemmed from the alleged abduction of Florence rancher Charles Glover and three persons who dropped by his home. Schmid, the only defense witness, said he never intended to kidnap anyone, and had entered the Glover home only to get warm. The escapees were charged with kidnaping the four-and forcing them to drive .to a point near Phoenix where they were released. Schmid had been serving a commuted life term for the slayings of three'Tucson girls. Hudgens had been convicted of killing his estranged wife and her parents near Kingman. The 30-year-old Schmid said' he escaped to prove to the parole board that he could live non-violently in society. He said parole boards ask how . convicts can be .returned to society "so. I felt the only way I could do that was escape and go. out in society and not be violent and that way I . could have some record of how I could establish to somebody that I was not violent anymore." Following Schmid's testimony, Judge T. J. Mahoney termed the defendant's rea- ' sons for escaping "Novel." Underscross-fixamination by County Attorney Robert Bean, Schmid said that his "ethics as a convict" prevented disclosure of how he escaped. REYKJAVIK (UPI) -American servicemen and students joined recovery teams today in building a wall around the island fishing town of Vestmannaeyjar to keep out molten lava from the erupting Helgafell Volcano; ,:...' I.:;". Officials said students from- Reykjavik and servicemen- from the U.S. base at Kefla- vik, Iceland, were brought to the stricken town to build a wall of ashes around the imperiled houses. , As many as 1,000 persons were working on Heimaey Island today, to build the wall and remove the heaps of ashes on the roofs of the nouses, the officials said.
