They had $130 for the trip in their old car to a relative's home in Cleveland. He found jobs in Cleveland where they have another rel- Planners Tell Group To Await Plan States Force U.S. To Do Jobs, Says Water Exper t and later in Safford, ative. But. mostly, he found trouble. Trouble like three months in jail, car breakdowns and a wreck, his wife mugged and robbed, his foster father dying. . . And his 85-pound wife, Patricia, 20, expecting their third child. THE TALE of Williamson's woes was detailed by him yesterday in the Tucson office of federal probation officer Edward Brown. Here's the story--sad, but with a happy ending: Their old car started acting SECOND-GRADE GEOMETRICIANS Citizen Photo The intricacies of geometry are being tackled by this group of second graders at Corbett Elementary School under the instruction of Mrs. Keith Dolgaard. If Mrs. Dolgaard anticipates some problem-solving d i f f i c u l t y , a short briefing session is held at the blackboard. PALMISTRY R E A D I N G S -- Advice o n l o v e , marriage and business.

Broadway Try Tucson First as do the high school students, there is no laxity. The seven and eight year olds can discuss, intelligently, ine segments, arcs, vertex, equilateral triangles, angles, adius and quadrilaterals. Taking geometry means getting to school a half hour early for the elementary school mathematicians, who are taking geometry on a voluntary basis. The class, introduced at Corbett on an experimental basis for the first time this year, was designed for the average, not gifted student, stressed their teacher, Mrs. Keith Dolgaard. Mrs. Dolgaard became interested in geometry for elementary students in a workshop she attended while teaching in California. The main idea, for the present, is to construct figures from stated problems without TUCSON INN (127 W. Drachman) · Have you Breakfasted, Lun- cheoned, or Dined with us lately?

The students were offered a great deal of teacher guidance at the start. Mrs. Dolgaard said students now have reached a point where they come into the classroom, sit down with their workbooks, read the problem and go to work. What about tthe vocabulary used in geometry? "That isn't much of a problem," Mrs. Dolgaard said. "They're always interested in learning big words. It's the small ones that give them trouble." The introduction to geometry, according to their teacher, has made the youngsters more aware of their surroundings. "They have learned how triangles are used in constructing bridges," she said. "They notice the angles used in constructing their desks and they recognize the globe as a circle." up in Idaho. By the time they reached Billings, Mont., most of their m o n e y had been spent for repairs and more repairs were needed. WILLIAMSON, 22 who never committed a crime before, forged five checks for $180. This became a federal offense because the checks, which he picked up in a store, were drawn on a Wyoming bank. On to LaGrange, 111, where they had to junk their car for $25, hitch-hiking the last 350 miles to Cleveland. There, a man saw them on the street w h e n they arrived and promptly gave Williamson a job setting tile. ABOUT A MONTH later, the FBI arrested him on the check charge. After he went to jail, the rent was raised $7 a week on their apartment. Welfare finally contributed a $10 food order. Mrs. Williamson gave the dog away because she couldn't afford to feed it. She got a job in a hamburger stand, only to have her first week's wages of $35 stolen by a purse snatcher who punched her in the face. Williamson pleaded guilty and after two months behind bars was released on a year's probation. A relative, who came from Seattle to help them, drove them back to Seattle to visit Williamson's foster father who was dying of cancer of the throat. THE RELATIVE gave them the car, an old one, and they went back to Cleveland to report to the probation officer. It was almost Christmas then and Williamson didn't have a job. So he telephoned another The Pima County Planning and Zoning Commission yesterday told a group of protesting land owners in the Sabino Canyon Road-Cloud Road area that future development must await a proposed neighborhood plan. It then ordered the planning department to submit such a plan. Neighborhood plans dictate the construction character of neighborhood areas in the county area, subject to the general land use plan. After enactment of the neighborhood plan, individual rezon- ings may be granted by the commission and the Board of Supervisors. Holding up the neighborhood planning to date has been a dispute between County Engineer Walter Burg and the county planning department, headed by Director Andre M. Faure and Associate Director John Tsaguris. Burg wants Cloud Road to be established at a width of 150 feet while Faure and Tsaguris say that 90 feet is enough. The engineer and planners met recently in an effort to iron out the difficulty. They could reach no compromise. ALBUQUERQUE, N.

It pledged a speedy rise in the standard of living to bring the island's stone-age natives into the 20th Century. Indonesian officials beamed as the blue-and-white banner of the United Nations was lowered at the end of a two- hour ceremony, ending seven months of interim U.N. administration and transforming the old Dutch West New Guinea into Indonesian West Irian. The Indonesians wasted no time in wiping out traces of the Dutch rule. This capital city, known as Hollandia under the Dutch, became Kota- baru. All Dutch street signs were taken down and replaced by Indonesian names. Foreign Minister Dr. Suban- drio, representing Indonesia at the ceremony, said the Indonesian government is determined to raise "in the shortest possible time the standard of living of the West Irian people." Indonesian President Su- karno, in a special message, said colonialism had come to an end in West Irian with the t r a n s f e r of administration from the United Nations to Indonesia. The president's m e s s a g e was sent to coincide with installation ceremonies for the new governor of the territory, E. J.

On Christmas day, the car skidded on an icy road in Kansas and plunged into a ditch, i n j u r i n g Mrs. Williamson slightly. A sympathetic hotel operator provided a Yule dinner and. $20 toward bus fare. AT SAFFORD, Williamson got a job as a painter, then added one as a gardener for a physician. He needed two iobs to pay for a $300 loan to buy a truck and for his wife's doctor bills. Then his foster father died and on March 27, he was arrested on a warrant charging he violated probation by leaving Cleveland without permission. Taken to the Pima County jail, he faced as much as 10 years in prison. His wife, a fiery redhead, put her daughter, 2, and son, 1, in the truck and drove to Tucson, where she practically besieged the jail, the probation office and the U. S. marshal's office, demanding her husband's release. WHEN HE WAS transferred to the federal detention center at Florence in an his followed in the truck. But finally, with the birth of her child imminent, she went back to Safford. Yesterday, moved by Williamson's troubles and persuaded by the support of his physician-employe}-, the law relented and restored him to probation. Williamson was on his way back to Safford at 6 p.m. yesterday--12 hours after his wife gave birth in the Safford Hospital to a six-pound, four-ounce boy. The issue now will be sent to the Board of Supervisors for solution. slates often ignore important public programs, thus forcing the federal government to undertake such responsibilities. Dr. Dean E. Mann of the Brookings Institution spoke yesterday during a symposium of Western water problems. The symposium at the University of New Mexico was part of the 39th annual meeting of the Southwest and Rocky Mountain divisions of the American Association for the Advance of Science. Mann said Western states "too often have stood back and waited for the national government, with its greater tax resources, to undertake responsibilities they l a t e r complain about." Another speaker, University of Colorado economist Dr. Morris E. Garnsey, predicted a bright future for the western area. Garnsey said the population, employment and income in the West will continue to grow if water technology can keep pace. In addition to Mann and Garnsey, others in the symposium were chairman Carle Hodge, science editor of the Arizona Daily Star at Tucson; Dr. Ira G. Clark, historian at New Mexico State University; Dr. Marion Clawson ot Resources of the Future. Inc., and Dr. Peter C. Duisherg, arid lands consultant from El Paso, Tex. attempt to discourage wife's persistence, she 2 Requests Are Denied By P-Z An apartment development on the near North Side and a commercial rezoning near the Catalina Highway's entry into the Coronado National Forest were denied yesterday. Meeting on the two before the Pima County Planning and Zoning Commission were Justice of the Peace Joe Jacobson and developer Sam Sneller. Jacobson asked for rezoning to permit building 40 apartments on 10 acres of land on the northeast corner of Tucson Blvd. and E. Prince Road. Property owners submitted 71 signatures in protest. They said such use was not in conformity with the suburban- type land use. Sneller is developing a one and one-half-square-mile residential subdivision east of the Catalina Highway and south of the Coronado National Forest. He wants commercial zoning on about eight acres. The commission denied the request on grounds that other business zoning exists less than one mile from the area. Girl, 17, Killed; Said Lying In Roatl CASA GRANDE--(/P--Ramona Sandy Lugo, 17, of Casa Grande, was killed in au auto- pedestrian accident early this morning on the outskirts of Casa Grande. The Arizona Highway Patrol said the girl was lying in the road when struck by a vehicle driven by Eugene Bradley, 43, of Phoenix. Bradley told officers he did not see the girl until his car was only a short distance away. He was not cited. The death sent the 1963 state traffic toll to 169, compared to 137 on this date a year ago. Tucson Navy Recruit Has Meningitis Robert P. Mendoza, 20, a former Tucson High School and University of Arizona student, was in serious condition today with meningitis at a San Diego Naval Hospital. Mendoza, son of Mr. and Mrs. Juan G. Mendoza, of 1236 W. St. Mary's Road, yesterday became the 17th Navy recruit to bfi stricken with the disease at the San Diego Naval Training Center. Doctors from the Navy and U. S. Public Health Service are investigating the o u t break, which started two months ago. A Navy spokesman said Ihe latest victims apparently contracted meningitis after sul- facliazine they took during a mass immunization program last week became ineffective in their systems. The epidemic has resulted in three deaths. - BUS SERVICE ""--"" TUCSON - NOGALES Greyhound Terminal MA 3-05S8 Leave TUCSON (or NOGALES 7:00 A.M. 11:15 P.M. 4:30 P.M. »:1S A.M. 1:15 P.M. 6:15 P.M. 11:15 P.M. 3:30 P.M. 10:30 P.M. 6:00 P.M.
