(Citizen Photo by Dave Acton) Army Gen. Rossoii Now Runs Marine-Defended Khe Sank SAIGON (AP) -- Appointment of Lt. Gen. William B. Rosson -as commander of a new north," ern headquarters in South Viet- ;;nam puts an Army general in ^charge of a critical area which -until now was considered al- Lmost exclusively a Marine ^'Corps domain. - As commander of "Provision- »al Corps, Vietnam," Rosson will ^run the looming battle for Khe ;Sanh -- defended entirely by ·»U.S. Marines and some South " Vietnamese rangers -- and any : new fighting for Hue or north of - it in Quang Tri Province and .-just below the demilitarized ,.zone. Rosson's appointment was seen by some observers as an effort to bring the threatened sector under closer control of Gen. William C. Westmoreland, chief of all U.S. forces in Vietnam, and his command in Saigon. Some newspaper accounts implied that the move reflected Army disatisfaction with the way the Marines were operating in South Vietnam's northern provinces, known as the 1st Corps area. The reports prompted Westmoreland last Wednesday to take the unusual step of issuing Senator Renews Blast At LB J 5 Westmoreland ; COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI)-"Sen. Stephen M. Young, D-Ohio, ..Friday again called for the removal of Gen. William C. " Westmoreland as commander of · U.S. forces in Vietnam and said ^President Johnson made the "gravest mistake of any American president" with his actions .in the Southeast Asian nation. "The Vietnam War is imrnor- -al and the most unpopular war .'. in the history of America," said the 78-year-old veteran of both world wars at a news conference. He recently visited Vietnam. · "There was no previous Vietnam commitment by two 'other presidents when Johnson became President," Young said. · "The day President Eisenhower left office there were 685 military advisors in Vietnam. ·They day President Kennedy was assassinated there were 20,000 military Advisers there." Young, who said he considered himself a "chickenhawk or an owl" on the war issue, said Westmoreland "is not using his troops effectively." "He has some 5,000 Marines, the best fighting men we have, holed up in a defensive status in Khe San'h and even some doing pacification work," Young said. "I would like to see a man like deputy commander Gen. Creighton Abrams take over," he said. "I talked with Abrams when I was in Vietnam recently and he is a real fighting man." Young said the Central Intelligence Agency was "all over the place in Thailand, Laos and Vietnam." "The President has yielded too much to the CIA and the Joint Chiefs of Staff," Young said. a public statement in defense of the Marines. He expressed "great admiration" for the Marines, from their commander, Lt. Gen. Robert E. Cushman, "down to the lowest private," and said he was greatly distsressed by reports that he felt otherwise. Nevertheless, it has been an open secret in Saigon that the Army wanted a bigger hand in running events in the north where until the latter part of last year the only American troops were Marines. In early February, Westmoreland sent his deputy, Gen Creighton W. Abrams to Phu Bai, near Hue, to set up a new northern command. U n d e r ;the new set-up Abrams returns 'to Saigon afte less than a month in the north his command replaced by Ros son's new "Provisional Corps." The official reason given fo Abrams' return was that hi job in the north was virtual! completed. That job, the an nouncement said, was to effec coordination among Army Navy, Marine and Air Fore units in the area. Some newsmen, however, re ported the Marines were unhap py at the imposing of Abram a four-star Army commander over the three-star Marine com mand of Cushman. Cushman now remains techn cally and administratively i over-all command of the lj Corps area -- the five norther provinces. In practice, Rosso will be in direct tactical charg of the two northernmost prov inces and Cushman in the thre others. SATURDAY. MARCH 9, l?68 NEW HAMPSHIRE Rocky's Backers Aim For 15,000 Write-In Votes CONCORD, N.H. (UPI) - Uov. Nelson A. Rockefeller's ff Hampshire backers hope and believe that 15,000 votes in us state's presidential primary "\iesday will push him into ac- ive competition in the Oregon jrimary May 28. The New Yorker is the willing ut inactive beneficiary of a belatedly expanded write - in ampaign in the Republican residential primary. F o r m e r Vice President lichard M. Nixon, the only ma- or active candidate whose ame is on the ballot, is rated a sure winner. Meanwhile, it was disclosed lockefeller has asked a group of Republican party leaders to meet with him in New York ity tomorrow afternoon "to exchange views on the situation of he party" following Gov. George Romney's withdrawal m the GOP presidential race. A secretary said it had "been made clear to all participants :hat the purpose of the meeting s not to seek any commitments of support for the gov- :rnor. . . . " Rockefeller's supporters in New Hampshire have deliberately set themselves a relative- y low goal of 15,000 votes, in an expected turnout of about 90,000, because their campaign has not been well financed or organized. While denying that they have received any hints from New York, they believe that 15,000 votes should persuade Rockefeller to enter the primary in Oregon,, the only state where he won a primary contest as an active candidate hi 1964. He has been edging closer to becoming an active candidate this year, particularly since his own choice, Gov. George Romney of Michigan, withdrew Feb. 28 from the campaign for the GOP presidential nomination. Just eight days ago, he said he was ready and willing to run if the Republican Party wanted him but that he still was not a candidate. He said he would enter no primaries because they caused dissension when his party needed unity. Two days ago, he said he had no present intention of going into Oregon but that he would not rule out the possibility that it was a subject he had "to study very carefully." With his name on the New Hampshire ballot four years ago, Rockefeller polled 19,504 votes, 21 per cent of the total, and finished third in the Republican vote. Henry Cabot Lodge, as a write-in candidate, won the primary with 35.5 per cent of the vote and Barry Goldwater came in second with 22.3 per cent. At that time, Rockefeller was handicapped by widespread disapproval of his divorce and remarriage -- an issue that has faded with the years. He already has withdrawn his name from the Wisconsin and Nebraska primary ballots. He can wait until March 19 before making his decision about Oregon. Nixon and Gov. Ronald Reagan of California also will be on the ballot in Oregon. IN CALIFORNIA LB J Plans Campaign To Obtain Candidacy By The Associated Press President Johnson, reportedly seeking to clear "up an in- traparty dispute, is due to head for California this spring to campaign for a slate of candidates favoring his candidacy for re nomination. Another slate favors Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy of Minnesota, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination on a platform of opposition to Johnson's Vietnam policy. McCarthy, meanwhile, has criticized New Hampshire campaign attacks on his Vietnam stance. Political advertisements broadcast in advance of Tuesday's primary are saying a vote for McCarthy would be "a vote for fuzzy thinking and surrender." McCarthy told a news conference Friday in Rochester, N.H., President Johnson should take steps to disassociate himself from the attacks. SHREDDERS ADVISED Wastepaper Basket On Way Out? By LEN DAVIS Citizen Staff Writer The office wastepaper basket soon may be a thing of the past. Such is the opinion of F.J. Spencer, a management consultant from Houston, who spoke yesterday at a symposium on "Solid Wastes -- the Third Pollution," held at the University of Arizona. "We are being buried in paper and other waste materials," he said, "and one of the best solutions to the problem seems to be electric shredders connected with conveyer belts that go to convenient collection points." He said shredders are used by the armed forces to destroy secret documents. "Why can't we use similar equipment for-routine disposal of large quantities of paper, such as that found in large office buildings?" One of the biggest objectives of solid waste disposal is to "re,duce to manageable proportions, at the source, the myriad of materials no longer useful in ·; their present form," he said. ; The exhaust system in large . air-conditioning units could be ; "used to convey waste materials · t to pick-up points, according to . Spencer. · . M It would be the same prin- · ciple-as pneumatic tubes in post offices," he said. "Reduce the size of the objects to be conveyed, maintain a minimum diameter conduit and you increase the velocity of whatever is in the tubes." Victor Brown, president of Metropolitan Waste Conversion Corp., Wheaton, 111., told the symposium that the headlong rush of the affluent society toward an even greater abundance "apparently is generating so much garbage that it soon won't be possible to dispose of it without major technological innovations. Existing systems for getting rid of trash are largely obsolete or inadequate." "We have the ability to produce larger and larger volumes of everything. So far, there is no problem in picking up our urban refuse with ease. But the real question is, where does the truck dump it?" Brown said the nation's land surface is cluttered with 200,000 dumps. "Most of these are unsightly and unsanitary, and eventually will close by weight of public protest," he said. He discussed the use of incinerators, landfills and composting solid waste materials as a possible solution to the disposal problem and said, "There are infinitely more failures in the fields of incineration and landfills than in composting disposal plants. "Actually, the whole business of solid waste disposal is one dismal failure. We have raised our accomplishments to extreme heights, in science, literature, travel, health 'and in all manner of modern living and industry," he said, "but we have not learned how to keep from fouling our own environment, or how to get rid of our own effluvia except to toss it onto our neighbor's doorstep." Elmer R. Kaiser, senior research scientist at New York University's School of Engineering and Science, said the possibilities for steam and power generation from refuse are being restudied, and that the disposal of incinerator residue, salvage of metals and the utilization of soot for industrial purposes are under investigation. "The burning of oversized waste, with or without prior shredding, also is being developed," said Kaiser. "Trees, furniture, pallets, mattresses, truck and auto tires and demolition lumber reduce to even finer residue than does the equivalent weight of normal refuse," he said. He predicted that larger capi- tal investments will become available for incineration plants and allied facilities," "as public officials become more aware of the benefits derived from waste management programs." Chairman of the symposium, which was attended by nearly 100 people, was Prof. Quentin M. Mees of the UA's department of civil engineering. HOP UNDAY McCarthy said he didn't know whether they were being run with White House approval bu "if these ads were being put oul in my name, I'd protest publi cly." The Minnesota senator faced troubles of another kind in Massachusetts, where's he's running in the April 30 primary The authenticity of signature, on petitions to place his name on the presidential preference ballot there was challenged Fri day, but specific charges wer not filed. On the Republican side of th presidential race, Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York still technically a noncandidate has asked a group of GOP lead ers to meet with him Sunday ii New York City to assess "th situation of the party." An aide said 20 to 25 GOP leaders -- he would not nam them -- will talk wLth Rocke feller about the .implications Gov. George - Romney's with drawal from contention for th Republican nomination. California Atty. Gen. Thoma C. Lynch, delegation chairma in that state, said Johnson prob ably will appear in San Fran cisco and Los Angeles but h dates have been set.

(Citizen Photo) Associated Grocers Plan $500,000 Warehouse Here A new warehouse costing about $500,000 will be built on 16 acres of industrial property, Walter C. Grant, vice president ,n charge of Tucson operations for Associated Grocers, disclosed today. The new facility will be located on South Country Club Road, north of the flood control channel and will replace Associated Grocers' present building at 830 E. 17th. St. where 80 persons are employed. The AG warehouse now operating here lacked modern facilities. "For a long time, we were going to close it. But we decided against it. We decided that instead of going that route, we would start another plant and go from there," Grant said. The replacement warehouse probably will not be bigger than e current 67,000 square-foot building, Grant said. But future 2 Plead Guilty To Petty Theft Tucsonians Theodore Edward Dzuban, Jr. and Todd Cooper Scholer, arrested on suspicion of grand .theft, pleaded guilty to an amended charge of petty theft yesterday. The men, both 20, were taken hi custody after police said they w i t n e s s e d them removing household articles and clothing from a car parked at the Ramada Inn. Both men were fined $25 by Justice of the Peace Joe Ja- cobsoti and released. ixpansion of the new building is possible, he added. At AG's present warehouse, :he firm handles only canned and packaged foods, known as ''dry groceries," and frozen foods, according to Grant. Added to these items at the new warehouse will be delicatessen items, produce, and items such as houseware goods, kitchen gadgets, and drug sundries, he said- Associated Grocers serves 138 retail supermarkets and groceries in the Tucson area, according to Grant. Plans for what AG calls its "first stage"of development of its industrial acreage on South Country Club were approved Thursday at a board of directors meeting, Grant said. Tucson members of the board are Jerry Lee and William Sharp. "First stage development will consist of a modern warehouse building and offices, together with extensive truck ramp facilities for accommodating heavy flow of truck traffic between Driver Sentenced Frank L.

Insulin Shot Murderer Gets Death LOS ANGELES (AP) - William Dale Archerd, the first person believed ever to be convicted in the United States of murder by injecting insulin, iias been sentenced to die in California's gas chamber. Superior Court Judge Adolph Alexander, who heard the first- degree murder case without a jury, passed sentence on the 55- year-old former hospital attendant Friday after hearing testimony about Archerd's health. A defense witness, Dr. Joseph Marx, testitified that Archerd had chronic heart disease, arterial sclerosis, latent diabetes and has only about five years to live. But Dr. Irwin Hoffman, a prosecution witness, said he strongly disagreed. Archerd was convicted last Wednesday of the insulin injection killings of Zella Winders Archerd, 48, his fourth wife, iti 1956; Mary Brinker Post Arden, 60, his seventh wife, in 1966; and a nephew, Burney Kirk Archerd, 15, in 1961. Estate Appraised The estate of Stephen T. Pence, 3417 E. 3rd St., has been appraised at $123,713.99 in Superior Court. Pence, who died April 29, 1967, willed his assets to his widow, Mariam E. Pence, and his four children. MUSEUM OF THE HORSE THE INDIAN PONY TRADING POST Best bet for browsing or Buying.
