i \ IS 8 Officers Quit City's Police Force The Phoenix piolice department will still be urKfe-rmaTine'd after 25 new officers Joirt the force June 10, it was learoe<i yesterday. Tine City Courrcril authorized the additional f>ersor«nel last month because of a 3O per cent increase in major crime in Phoenix. The new *ne*t would have brought the dejpaut If'iient up to full strength of STlT officers. But since the authorization eight men have resigned of a-etired. MOST OF those resigning said they have accepted employment with police departments in other cities with higher pay scales. Police Chief Charles Thomas has said that the 25 additional men would be utilized in establishing roaming squads of officers during the hours wfaen most felonies happen. Thomas said the special shift will work between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. The new m-en will not be as- Signed to the roaming squads, but they will release seasoned patrolmen to work with the mobile Units. USE OF roaming squads will permit selective enforcement and concentration of extra manpower both in certain city areas and on specific crimes, the police chief said. . In previous statements, Thomas said it would tsufce at least 225 additional patrolmen to adequately provide police protection for the more than 5OO.OOO residents 6f Phoenix. It Is reliably reported Chief Thomas will ask for more offi- bers in the police budget he will will present to the City Council in mid-June, He would neither confirm nor deny the report. Commutation Power Held Parole board xnembcrs and the governor have <iiscretion to com mute at any time a sentence giv en for kidnaping with intent to commit anottier crime. That legal opinion was given the state prison, superintenden yetserday by Atty. Gen. Robert Pickrell. Commuting a sentence means making it less severe. Pickrell pointed out that Ari zona law denies parole to anyon' convicted of Kidnaping for pur poses of committing anothe crime until the minimum sentence has been served, But this provision does no mean that reduction of the sen tence cannot parole board toe considered b; members and thi governor before the original min imum sentence Pickrell added.

The farmers met with members of the Final Agricultural Stabill- iation Committee. Untie* the federal proposal, wheat would have a price support of $2 per bushel. All wheat would be grown under federal controls. SOME farmers expressed fear the wheat program would hurt small farmers and called it a "pig in the poke." Steve Faltis, executive director of the State Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, and Dean Stradllng, service director for Casa Grande, attended the meeting to explain the program to the farmers. Wilbur Wuertz of Casa Grande, vice president of the Final ASC committee, attacked the proposal. "PASSING this bill would kill initiative and incentive In young farmers," Wuertz said. "Farmers should still rely on the laws ol supply and demand for their wheat regulation."

Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., voiced qualified approval last night of the use of federal force to guarantee civil rights of Negroes in the South. In answer to a question from a student at Phllipps Academy, Goldwater said federal force should be used if local law, local officials and the national guard do not do the job. Goldwater said that law alone will not change man's feeling for man, which he said was the root of most troubles in the world. He said it will take education, church teachings and home environment, coupled with laws, to bring about changes in human nature. But Goldwater said the Negro of the South may not be patient. "If I were a Negro," he said, "I don't think I would be very patient." Goldwater visited the preparatory school for a lecture.

The officers were unhappy about being required to wear ties and long-sleeved shirts in yesterday's 103-degree heat. Patrolmen will doff ties and go intp short-sleeved shirts June 1. "Why can't the chief take a little pity on us and tell us we can go into the cooler uniform now?" said one sweating patrolman. "I think it's real dumb to make us wear these ties when the temperatures climb beyond 100 degrees." lotment acreage would drop from 55 million to 49.5 million.
