MATTHEWS Citizen Staff Writer Known to his associates as "Chromedome," "Old Baldy," and "Big Daddy," Benjamin Hoskins Paddock is Tucson's contribution to the FBI's list of 10 most-wanted fugitives.

He made the list after escaping on Dec. 31, 1968, from the Federal Correctional Institution at La Tuna, where he was serving a 20-year sentence for robbing a Phoenix bank in 1960. Paddock alias Perry Archer, Benjamin J. Butler, Leo Genstein, Pat Paddock and Patrick Benjamin Paddock -hasn't been seen or heard from since. At the time of the robbery, Paddock lived in Tucson his wife and four children.

Neighbors said they couldn't believe that the colorful businessman, then 34 years old, was involved in crime. Paddock sold garbage disposal units here under the business name of Arizona Disposer 'Chromedome' Co. He called himself "Big Daddy" in connection with a night club operation on North 1st Avenue. Before selling the disposal units, he operated an East Broadway service station and also sold used cars. Although he was imprisoned for the holdup of a branch of the Valley National Bank in Phoenix, Paddock also had been accused of two other bank robberies.

Those charges were dropped after his conviction. Federal officers reported that when he was arrested in Las Vegas, Paddock attempted to run down an FBI agent with his car. "Since he has utilized firearms in previous crimes, has employed violence in attempting to evade arrest and has been diagnosed as being psychopathic, Paddock should be considered extremely dangerous," said Palmer M. Baken agent in charge of the Phoenix FBI office. Baker described Paddock as being "A glib, smooth-talking man who is egotistical and arrogant."

Will Appeal Wiretap Decree In 'White Panther' Case WASHINGTON (UPI) The Justice Department announced today it will appeal to the Supreme Court a ruling that it is illegal for the government to tap telephones of domestic groups in absence of a court warrant even in the interest of national security. U.S.

Solicitor General Erwin Griswold said a petition would be filed in the Supreme Court asking review of a 6th Circuit Court of Appeals' opinion, Cincinnati, in the case of a member of the so-called "White Panthers." The 6th Circuit on April 8 upheld a decision of U.S. Dist. Judge Damon Keith in Detroit. The petition to the Supreme Court will be filed later. The 6th circuit ruling, if allowed to prevail, was seen as possibly a major blow to the Justice Department's stepped- up use of wiretapping in surveillance of radical domestic groups.

In a 2-1 ruling, the Appeals Court ordered the Justice Department to disclose contents of telephone conversations wiretapped in its investigation of the bombing Sept. 29,1968, of a Central Intelligence Agency office at Ann Arbor, Mich. The case involves Lawrence "Pun" Plamondon, 25, one of three White Panthers accused of conspiracy in the bombing incident. Keith ruled Jan. 27 that wiretaps of Plamondon's telephone conversations must be disclosed to him because of a constitutional prohibition against unreasonable search and seizure.

"An idea which to permeate much of" the government's argument is that a dissident domestic organization is akin to an unfriendly foreign power and must be dealt with in the same fashion," Keith said. There is great danger in an argument, of this nature, for each strikes at the very constitutional privileges and immunities that are inherent in United States citizenship." Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell last Friday made a strong defense of wiretapping and surveillance, arguing in a speech that the greatest danger to the naion was from within.

He staunchly defended what he felt was the government's right to firetap purely domestic groups. "National security is indivisible," MJtchell contended. "You cannot separate foreign from domestic threats to the government and say that we should meet one less decisively than the other." "I don't see how we can separate the two, but if it were possible I would say that experience has shown greater danger from the so-called domestic variety." Awareness House, Neighborhood Centers Federal Grants Are Sought Two federal grants totaling 5335,000 are being sought by The Tucson Drug Problem Coalition, G.W. Eckles, the group's director, reported today. Eckles said that $101,000 is being sought for Awareness House, a drug rehabilitation center in Tucson, from the Office of Education of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare.

The amount would be used for the facilities and programs of Awareness House and to initiate a new program of bringing drug education and consultation services out into the community. The other grant, for $254,000, would be used to set up 24-hour- a-day centers in Neighborhoods served by the Tucson Committee for Economic Opportunity including the Model Cities area and the municipality of South Tucson. The grant is being sought from the Office of Economic Opportunity. Eckles said that a "crisis intervention center" is being planned to refer narcotics addicts and drug abusers to treatment and counseling sen-ices. He said that OEO money can be used to finance this program because its prime concern would be tr "get people back into the job market.

''Gainful employment is one of the essential ingredients of a lerson's self-concept in relation- pad," where addicts could go to ship to society, and therefore a kick the habit, key to remaining off drugs," he said. Eckles also said that a portion of the facility could be used as a "kick pad, or a temporary crash Eekles said that, if the $254.000 grant is received, and "in- Rehabilitatioii Parlev SCOTTSDALE (UPI) The Pacific regional conference of the National Rehabilitation Association will be held at the Executive House here May 10-12. The IS workshops will be open to anyone interested. Registration fee is 57.50. dications are good that it will be," the program will be presented to the South Tucson mayor and council for approval.

This grant would have to be matched by $63,500 in non-federal funds, which could be money 'in kind" in the form of services or facilities used in the program, he said. On Saturday, the coalition received a grant of $25.810 from the state's Justice Planning Agency for Eckles' salary and for office expenses. Ex-Banker Sentenced For Threats Wallace B. Erickson, a former vice president of the Southern Arizona Bank Trust Co. in Tucson, yesterday was fined $500 plus court costs and sentenced to four years probation for making telephone threats.
