How, Gault hopes, he will be able to hold a steady job. Lars Raid Ckea-Cola Plant Thieves broke into the Coca- Cola Bottling Co. at 3939 N. Romero Road early today and took $3,588 in cash and checks. Patrolman Carson Stanford said entry was gained by prying a sliding glass door. About two-thirds of the loot was in cash, police said. Suspect Held In Rape Try William J. Walker, 35, o 1033 N; Sonoita Ave., was arrested yesterday at his home by city detectives on a warrant charging attempted rape. Walker is accused of trying to rape a 12-year-old girl. "I wasn't happy when my parents started the appeal to the Supreme Court," Gault said Tuesday at a Job Corps center where he is learning to be an auto mechanic. "Everytime I got a job I couldn't hold it because of news stories about the appeal and the : act I had been in jail." Gault's appeal led to a landmark ruling this week that juveniles are guaranteed the same righs as adults in court actions. He spent six months in the State industrial School at Fort Grant after being declared delinquent in Globe three years ago for alleged lewd telephone calls to a married woman. Gault denied Tuesday that he had made the telephone calls or that he had admitted to the juvenile judge that he had. "The decision will help me," Gault said. "It will give me peace of mind. I can learn better and quicker now without this hanging over my head." Gault dropped out of high school as a sophomore and he joined the Job Corps in Globe a month ago. An official of the center described him as "very bright an dambitious . . . and determined to learn his trade." were "considered unreasonable" when they sought to supply the m i l i t a r y with tetracycline, chlortetracycline, sulfadiazine, meprobamate, meclizine, oxyte- tracycline and nitrofurantoin. So Pentagon buyers went abroad where "foreign manufactured drugs have been and continue to be of high quality." "There have been 63 contracts awarded under foreign source items," the agency said. "The total price of these was approximately $12.6 million as opposed to a total price offered by the lowest domestic firm of $33 8 million, a price differential in excess of $21.2 million. "Of the 63 contracts, 26 were for (antibiotic) tetracycline tablets and the total price was $7,589,670.72." If American produced tablets had been purchased, the agency said, they would have cost $9,974,666.13. Since 1959, the agency has spent $4J6.5 million on hundreds of various drugs, most' of them bought in the United States. Disaster Warnings To Be Improved WASHINGTON (AP) - More than half the states will be provided with imporved warning systems against tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, seismic sea waves, severe storms and solar disturbances. The government says it expects the better service to cut by half the annual death toll of 500 to 600 now attributed to natural disasters. The Environmental Science Services Administration said Tuesday the expansion program for the nationwide weather warning system will include extending a teletypewriter circuit in states where tornadoes often hit. This will be done before June 30. Other steps will be purchase of eight high-powered weather radar sets, expanded river forecasting in the Delaware and Susquehanna River basins and a strengthened seismic sea wave program in Alaska.

De Gaulle Brushoff Won't Halt Britain ? s Market Bid LONDON (AP) -- British newspapers today backed Prime Minister Harold Wilson's reported resolve to press ahead with his bid for Common Market membership despite Presi- Licavoli Rezoning Denial Faces Test David A. Garber Wreck Kills 4 Viet GIs SEOUL (UPI)--A five-ton U.S. Army truck carrying soldiers to a surveillance position near the Korean Demilitarized Zone went out of control and overturned, killing four American soldiers and injuring 14 others, U.S. spokesmen said Tuesday. None of the victims' names The nominating committee, headed by Gin. included Dino De Concini, Donald Starr, Mrs. Sweeney, Beaudry and Elliott. was released. The accident occurred Monday evening near the Western part of the demilitarized zone. The truck was climbing a steep incline when it went out of control and rolled backwards, hitting embankments and finally overturning into a deep ditch. PROFOUND ANALYSIS of the news Holmes Alexander in the CITIZEN Denial of a rezoning request on mobster Pete Licavoli's Grace Ranch faces a Superior Court test. David Pakula, attorney for the Licavoli trust, said after the Board of Supervisors' action yesterday the case will be taken to court. He said he was confident the ruling would be reversed. A similar case involving land just a quarter of a.mile west of Licavoli's ranch on Wrightstown Road was rezoned last year under similar circumstances. The board denied the request for three homes per acre zoning on that property. A compromise in court permitted two homes per acre. The request of Tucson Title Trust Co., as trustee for Licavoli's land, was for two residential lots per acre plus some m u 11 i p 1 e-family zoning near Tanque Verde Wash at the back of the ranch. Three zoning plans for the area specify minimum home sites of four acres, and it was these plans that the supervisors upheld yesterday. Denser devel opment, they felt, would b premature. An overflow crowd turned ou for the board's hearing. Mor than a dozen property owner n the area of Tanque Verde nd Wrightstown roads criti- ized the request before the joard. However, two property wners whose land abuts the Grace Ranch wanted to see he rezoning go through. The County Planning and loning Commission last month voted 4-3 to recommended the change. It was the feeling of a majority that the land might 3e approved for denser uses despite the low density set by ;he Rincon Area Plan -adopted in 1959 -- and smaller land use plans adopted since then. By its action yesterday, the supervisors did not agree. All three board members visited the property Monday. They were plainly worried over flood dangers because of a wash, in addition to their regard for the adopted master plans. Opponents apparently felt the case might be finally decided in the courts. After the board's vote, a group indicated it wanted to hire an attorney to help the county defend itself if the case went to court on appeal. It marked the fourth time since 1958 that Licavoli has failed to get the ranch rezoned. Three previous requests failed to get commission approval. dent Charles de Gaulle's new brushoff. There was no official comment on De Gaulle's new rebuff at his news conference Tuesday. But high officials said they were not particularly surprised arid that Wilson was determined to go ahead with his campaign to get Britain into the European Economic Community. London newspapers termed De Gaulle's statement ."\ brushoff," "a velvet veto" and the start of a new kind of cold war in Europe. The French leader did "not repeat his outright veto in 1963 of the first British application. But he outlined what he called "formidable obstacles" standing in the way of quick British entry into the six-nation European trading group. He spoke of British isolation from the Continent, Britain's Commonwealth . ties and its "special agreement" with the United States. Admitting Britain to the Common Market, he said, would lead to applications for membership from Britain's fellow members in the seven-nation European Free Trade Association -- EFT A. And this would mean "building a totally new edifice and razing what has just been built," he said. De Gaulle listed as alternatives an association between the Common Market and EFTA, which Wilson has already red- jected, or waiting until the British achieve "the profound economic and political transformation which would allow them to join the six continentals. SLIP COVER EVENT! CUSTOM MADE He plays checkers with 20 tons of molten metal Inside the vast Smelter Building at Kennecott's Ray Mines Division, copper "concentrate" is liquefied by heating to 2800-degrees Fahrenheit in a 3 5-by-l 20- foot Reverberatory furnace. "Slag," containing worthless impurities, floats to the top and is skimmed off -- while "matte," a mixture of sulphur, iron and copper, sinks to the bottom and is drawn off unto steel ladles of 20-ton capacity. At this point, a Cfane Operator inside his "traveling office" high above the block-long Converter Aisle, hooks onto the ladle and transports it to one of three Converter furnaces -and gently pours the "matte" into the furnace for further purification by methods that eliminate the sulphur, iron and other impurities. Later, when it has become 99.5% pure copper, the molten metal is poured into a ladle and transported by the Crane Operator to the Anode furnace for final processing to 99.7% purity. · Like all of Kennecott's more than 1450 mine, mill, and smelter workers, our Crane Operators are highly skilled workmen -- utilizing the industry's most advanced facilities to extract copper at lowest cost from Arizona's low-grade ores -- which average less than 1% copper content.
