THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1976 Mine inspector selection change shelved by panel PHOENIX (AP) -- A perennial bid to have an appointive instead of an elective state mine inspector appears dead after being shelved in the House Government Operations Committee. The committee, headed by Rep. James B. Ratiiff, R-Sun City, voted to hold the proposal, which would require voter ratification as a constitutional change, late yesterday. Ratiiff, prime backer of the bill, said the measure is the best way to assure that qualifications and not politics would determine the choice of mine inspector. Sandra Metcalf, president of the Arizona League of Women Voters, told the committee the proposal had league backing for the same reasons as those expressed by Ratiiff. "We feel that the inspector should be responsible to the governor, who would determine the qualifications of the man he appoints," said Mrs Metcalf. Referring indirectly to incumbent inspector Bert C Romero, Ratiiff said, "it's no secret we have problems with the present situation, but I hope no one votes for or against this bill for that reason." His allusion was to Romero's previous appearance before a House committee during which allegations of administrative incompetence wereaired. Several committee members, however, dissented from the view that an appointive mine inspector would be an improvement, "Over the years most of our inspectors have been good, and I can't think we should change an elective office because of this one," said Rep. Juanita Harelson, R-Tempe. Rep. G. T. "Tom" Alley, D- Ajo, said he'd spent most of his life in a mining community and UA student dies in van wreck The University of Arizona coed who died in a van crash on Old Spanish Trail is the county's 16th traffic fatality of 16 -- Kathleen M. Warrell 17 --WHO??? the year. At this time last year, there were four traffic deaths. Kathleen M. Warrell, 19, Carlisle, Pa., died at the scene when the van she was driving overturned several times. She was a junior in the UA College of Fine Arts, deputies said. A passenger, Thomas J. · Jensen, 20, of Tucson, was treated at Tucson Medical Center for minor injuries and released, hospital officials reported. Deputies said the crash occurred as the van was heading west near Colossal Cave, about 14 miles from Tucson, at a high rate of speed. Miss Surgeon Madden elected Dr. John W. Madden, professor of surgery at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, has been elected treasurer of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. Madden, director of the UA's division of surgical biology and the Hand Rehabilitation Center, was chosen last week at the group's annual meeting in New Orleans. He joined the College of Medicine faculty in 1969, serving on the University of North Cart)lina faculty before coming to Tucson. He is a graduate of Yale University and earned his medical degree at Harvard University. The American Society for Surgery of the Hand was founded more than 30 years ago to provide continuing education programs for medical students and physicians and to encourage teaching and research in treating diseases of the hand. Warrell lost control of the vehicle, which left the roadway near a curve, investigators said. She was thrown through the windshield, deputies said. She died of massive head injuries, deputies reported. Jensen was found stunned near the vehicle. Nine of the 16 fatalities reported this year occurred within city limits. None of those reported by this date last year occurred within city limits. Tucson police officers in the traffic division could not explain the surge in fatalities. opposed "getting rid of an elective office." "If they do a good job, we can show them by re-electing them," said Alley. Rep. Carl J. Kunaseh, R- Mesa, attempted to save the bill with an amendment that would have required the inspector to have a degree in mining engineering. Rep. Gerald F. Moore, D-Phoenix, ended debate on that point with a move to hold the bill -- generally tantamount to burying it. Officers elected by league Paula W h i t e , assistant manager of operator services at Mountain Bel) Telephone Co., has been elected president of the Tucson Urban League. Richard Davis, a lawyer, was elected vice president. Becky Schulman, a housewife, was named treasurer and James Randolph, a businessman, was named secretary. Newly elected members of the league's board of directors are Joseph Daugherty, Cheryl Hill, Ralph Martinez, Bessie Morris, Alice Paul, Clyde Phillips, William Ponder and John Biggs.
