Entered as second class matter Post Office. Tucson, Arizona T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N * SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 1972 Drunken Driver Law Enforcement Held Up By Wire services : PHOENIX -- Gov. Jack Wil- ·lams has signed into law a !WU aimed at drunken drivers, ·but because of an oversight it 'wiM not take effect until later Ihis yjpr. , "The bill reduces the amount ·of alcohol that must be -present in. the blood of a drunk .idrivJng suspect for presump- 'tion of guilt. The present standard is .15 of 1 per cent. The ibffl signed yesterday by the " governor lowers that amount -by one-third, to .10. ", But the biU did not carry the emergency clause that would have made it effective immediately. Bills without the emergency clause do not become effective until 90 days after the legislature adjourns -- meaning it will be next summer before this bill becomes operative. Sponsors of the bill said lack of the emergency clause was .an oversight. It was the first measure of the two-week-old session that was passed by both houses and signed by the governor. Williams termed it "another step forward an the battle against one of our major killers, the drunk driver." The House Commerce and Industry Committee opened bearings today on no-fault ·auto insurance with testimony from the insurance industry and the Maricopa County Bar Association. The committee, headed by Rep. Jay Stuckey, R-Phoenix, lias introduced a bill identified las "pure no fault" under which accident victims would -- HERE'S THE PAYOFF... Ultimate 'Week' Due Next Month In the past year, Tucsonians have been asked officially by the mayor to respect the law, bike to work, forget- me-not, punt-pass-and-kick, and wear a golf ..sweater for six days in a row. But the ultimate in mayoral-blessed events will come next month with the proclamation of Pay Your Bills Week. Somewhere along the line, there must have been a few sceond thoughts about where such encouragement .might lead, because that same week also will be proclaimed Crime Prevention Week. job of screening requests and is- suing proclamations usually ends up on the desk of the mayor's secretary. Most requests are granted, she said, "unless they're for something that supports overthrowing the government." There were 111 proclamations issued last year, including 54 for specific weeks honoring a variety of professions, events and causes. Two local newsmen last year decided to ask that a day be set aside honoring them, just to see'if it could be done. Their request was granted and a day was proclaimed in their names April 31. Coprt Building Plans Face ;New Scrutiny By Jurists ; Plans for the construction of -a major phase of the Superior "Courts'',7 Building may be Amoved off dead center next -week. - Jim'RUey, county physical I plant director, said today that ; he will meet Monday with a - committee of judges in an ef- ". fort to clear the way for the ; county to seek bids on the pro- -ject. I The judges reportedly have - been concerned about the inte- rior layout of the court facilities, and supervisors have been reluctant to advance the work without their approval. · Riley said he and the architect working on the project will outline the plans to the jurists. He said most of the suggestions made some time ago by the judges have been included in the new drawings. The county is considering a building of seven stories above ground level and the interior completion of three of them. The three levels would house court administrative offices and 12 courtrooms. Construction could begin in the spring and the work could be completed in the fall of 1974. The seven stories would top the two-below ground levels due for completion in March or April. The lower levels will contain parking spaces, utilities and a holding facility for jail prisoners. Survey Shows Militants Produce Negative Effect - NEW YORK (AP) -- A sur; vey of junior and senior high ; school students by four publi- - cations showed that 40 per " cent -.thought that militant ;groupsyiad a negative effect -on society, while 26 per cent ' thought-they had a positive effect. * ' ' I An Associated Press story ; about the survey incorrectly - reversed the figures. Thirty"four per cent thought militant - groups had not made much dif- -ference. The survey was among 34,000 senior high school students and 51,000 junior high school students who mailed in questionnaires published in World Week, Senior Scholastic, American Observer and Junior Scholastic magazines. The question about militant groups gave Students for a Democratic Society, the Black Panthers and the Young Lords as examples.

Wilson, counsel for 'the American Insurance Association with offices in San Francisco, said, "the insured waives the right to suit for a guaranteed payment that would compensate him up to §750 a month for permanent disability." "It takes the lottery out of current legal actions where the victim cannot be sure his award will be commensurate to his loss," Wilson added. Hughes Gets TOW Green Light The Army 'has given Hughes Aircraft Co. the go-ahead on the first increment -- |9.6 million -- of a $109.3 million four- year procurement program for TOW and antitank missiles.

Parallelling · the liyfesQSf a basketball hero ' .(although'Jie is something less : off the' court) and an under- graduate radical, the story has litlte in it outside of sex and is an obvious pandering to what is believed to be the young-audience taste. It will only bore the sophisticated. Since Nicholson produced the film, with Steve Blauner, and worked on the script with Jeremy Larner, from whose novel it was adapted, as well as directing, one is forced to pity such a display of retarded maturity. The story is formed of every cliche already worn threadbare in previous youth-oriented movies, even to a selective service scene in which the canpus radical fools the draft board by pretending to be a homosexual and compulsive masturbator. Also in the radical's area, two distressing scenes show a small child looking on at a psychedelic, pot-smoking party and at its mother enjoying sex.

In the end the radical goes insane (not that he hasn't been all along) and tries to commit suicide by running naked to a science lab and letting loose aD the insects and reptiles capable of poisoning him. The sex scenes are explicit and one abnormality is so long drawn out it becomes even more ridiculous than disgusting. The cast is headed by William Tepper, Michael Margotta and Karen Black, who would have done more for their careers and the cinema if they had refused to appear in this sick picture.

Even the young audience should be both bored and put off by this childish and stupid rendering of human relationships. It is not surprising it created a storm of controversy when it was shown at the Cannes Film Festival.
