The clowns, Henson, Larry McKinney of Phoenix and Quail Dobbs of Coahoma, Tex. (in the barrel) fight a Mexican bull at each performance of the Fiesta de los Vaqueros. The rodeo's final performance will be tomorrow. ,. . Tucsonians Lead., But If s Still Anybody's 'Bull' Game · · ' " · . ··/ V By JiM BERRY qtizen Staff Writer..

' By Radicals Must Stop, Says Agnew PHOENIX (AP) -- Vice President Spiro T. Agnew says the assault by revolutionaries on the nation's courts must be stopped if justice is to be preserved in America. Agnew spoke to about 1,900 Republicans at a ?75-a-plate dinner last night. He was interrupted often by applause. "The trial of the Chicago Seven or JCight was a stormy footnote to the 1968 Democratic convention," Agnew said. "It could have been a test of the constitutionality of the 1968 Civil Rights Act." Instead, he said, "The script was written for drama, not for justice and the outrageous courtroom conduct totally obfuscated the constitutional question.". "Our courts don't need lectures from self-appointed social critics or the antics of guerrilla theater," the vice president said. "Within the courtoom dissent must be orderly . . . the, rule is persuasion, not intimidation." He said the court's business is to favor neither the majority nor the minority but all. "The courts need lawyers who are not self-proclaimed disciples of a new cult," he said, "and reporters who do not predetermine the guilt or innocence of the defendant." Agnew characterized today's radicals as "totally negative and nihilistic with perverse ideas of being like the founding fathers." "Those who smash windows and seize universities destroy by injustice whatever is just," said Agnew. The vice president, commenting on the burning of a bank in California, said, ."As Americans know, those who burn banks can bank on being burned.'' Agnew hastened to add, "I mean by a fair trial of a jury of their peers,'so you, don't take me literally," . Senior Citizens The -Tucson Senior Citizens Club No. 1 will meet a.t 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Downtown Center, 220 S. 5th Ave. Arrangements have been.made by the club to serve lunches to the public in the dining room at the center during the national shuffleboard tournament, Tuesday through Friday.
