41 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N THURSDAY, MARCH 10, ltd* CASA GRANDE n 1TJLJ O i/V/J. J 4-Story Ruin This if tin third of a ttries on six National Park Service sites in Southern Arizona, designed to acquaint new Tnc- so- rcs:dc=ts a=d visitors vi'ith them and to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the service. By HELEN PASTERNAK Citizen Staff Writer A t a l l structure suddenly looms up above the low growing vegetation' of the desert as travelers near Coolidge and provides a nesting site for sparrows and a mystery that dates .back to the Columbus era. Why was the four-story tower built 600 years ago and what was its use? These are the two primary questions of the mystery surrounding the Casa Grande Ruins, a National Monument located 76 miles north of Tucson. MANY IDEAS are offered about the 11-room building, now shielded against the weather by a tall canopy, of .steel and concrete. Two possibilities are that it may have served as an apartment house or a watch tower for the Pueblo Indians. Indications are that the Casa Grande, a name given the struc- ture by Father Kino, was built around 1300 -- with excellent architectural planning -- a n d abandoned about 150 years la- f r V A * · . . . The Casa Grande, constructed of caliche, and the surrounding walled village already were in ruins when first seen by Father Kino in 1694. JIUINS OF MORE ancient Hohokam villages also are spotted throughout the 472-acre site, proclaimed a monument in 1918, and Supt. Charles B. Voll hopes funds will be provided some day for further excavation and investigation. There has been no excavation work at the monument since the 1930s. For the present, only the Casa Grande section -- which adjoins a visitor center and museum- is open to the public by guided tour. The cost of the tour is 25 cents per- person over the age of 12. A small picnic area also is available, but there are no provisions for camping. THE TRIP can easily be made in one day from Tucson and -for contrast -- could be extended to include the Tonto National Monument near Globe. GM Admits Investigating Leading Critic Of Autos DETROIT - UPI - General Motors Corp. admitted last uight it has been investigating the auto industry's chief critic, Ralph Nader, who testified recently before a Senate subcommittee. The GM statement came within hours after a Ford Motor Co. vice president sent a telegram to Sen. Abraham Ribicoff, EKIonn., denying his company had anything to do with alleged harassment or intimidation of the 31-year-old author of the controversial book "Unsafe at Any Speed." Nader!s complaints about unsafe automobiles has prompted Sens. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., and Ribicoff to ask the Justice Department for an investigation into auto safety. GM said its investigation of Nader was prompted by his "extreme criticism of the Corvair in his writings, press conferences, TV and other public appearances:" The automotive company said it bad hired a Washington law firm to initiate a routine investigation to "determine whether Ralph Nader was acting on behalf of litigants or their attorneys in Corvair design cases pending against General Motors." The statement said fee ir. tigation was limited only to Nader's "qualifications, background, expertise and association with such attorneys and did not include any of ttie alleged harassment or intimidation recently reported in the press." Tuesday Ribicoff, who heads the auto safety subcommittee, said an investigation should be conducted into the harassment charges. Ribicoff cited news reports detailing an intensive investigation of the auto critic by private de- c ImnlvitHr "t.hl»rt I* twuf^u) «--r-J~-w some connection between Mr. Nader's testimony and the alleged harassment -- that someone wants either to discredit Mr. Nader or induce him not to testify further." Nader has said he believed the investigation might have been ordered to impugn his standing before Congress. He scheduled to appear again at hearings on President Johnson's bill to set nationwide safety standards for motor vehicles.

Ctnirtn MA. 1-74W Prince Nets $225,000 For Charity MIAMI, Fla. --W-- Prince Philip of England headed for Houston today on a U.S. charity tour which he kicked off in Miami by raising $225,000. The handsome husband of Queen Elizabeth was the at; fraction at a glittering $100-a- plate dinner last night at the Fontainebleau Hotel. " The prince, piloting his turbojet, planned to reach Houston late in the afternoon. In Miami, Cuban exiles protesting British trade with the Fidel Castro regime, picketed in front of the Fontainebleau. As they demonstrated, the prince told a news conference fiat the British trade with Cuba and Viet Nam "has nothing to do with me. Even if I said I did or did not agree, it would have no bearing on the matter." Variety C l u b s International announced $225,000 was raised at the dinner for the benefit of ailing children. The prince, wearing a simple black jacket and tie, said in a brief speech, "Here we are in the heart of the bikini belt in full support of charity." Variety Club head James Carreras of London proposed a toast to President Johnson. Florida Gov. "Haydon Burns proposed one to Queen Elizabeth. The toasts were drunk in New York-made Royal Q u a l i t y champagne. The $100 menu included Gold Coast beef and Sunshine salad with hearts of Florida palm. Hundreds of plainclothesmen guarded the prince on his arrival, at his hotel and on a visit to Variety Children's Hospital. !A State' Department special agent, William McKee, reported the FBI received an anonymous call saying "you'd better watch out for the prince." McKee said it apparently was a crank call. The prince planned to stop at Dallas and Tucson en route to Los Angeles Saturday on the next leg of his tour. Politics One Thing, Home Life Another SACRAMENTO, Calif - UPI -- California Agriculture Director Charles Paul has asked Republican gubernatorial candidate George Christopher to stop saying Paul is not on Gov. Edmund G. Brown's- cabinet. .Paul has been attending cabinet meetings for four years. "Now when I leave home to attend a cabinet meeting, my wife looks at me with suspicion," Paul pleaded. (MSA GRAWE NATIMONUMSNT How to Get There --MVap By Dick Calkins AT HAMBURG, GERMAJVY OK Given For Building Of 4 SuperbrotheP HAMBURG, Germany --AP-Willi Bartels, a Hamburg property owner, has received official blessing for the million-dollar superbrothel. He hopes construction work will begin this year. According to his plan, a horseshoe-shaped complex of individual apartments will accommodate 150 women. Each apartment will have bathing and cooking facilities. Customers will be able to park their cars in underground garages. A single red lamp and nameplate inscribed "Eros Center" will locate the place for visitors to the city's famous Reeperbahn nightspot area. The name was arrived at after youth authorities took exception to the title "Girls' Hostel." The idea of the center is welcomed by officials as a means of stemming Hamburg's problems of street prostitution. Police and civic officials toured other West German cities before deciding that this type of brothel -- similar to one in Duesseldorf -- was an acceptable addition to the city. Girls are to pay 25 marks ($6.25) a day for an apartment in one of the six buildings in the complex. A position in the new centejcjssffild put them on a strong competitive footing with rivals in the Herbert- strasse, who display themselves in old-fashioned shop windows.
