Sergeant John Pekelo, head of the Metro squad that led the raid, said the drag race activities at the Industrial Park have been under police scrutiny for '"some time" and "always draw a large crowd." Pekelo and some other officers were staked out last night in anticipation of a race. Shortly after 1 a.m. the race began and the squad moved in to make arrests. The officers caught 38 adults and 29 juveniles, including several young women. All were parked in their cars watching a race down a wide straight street between two "draggers." The racers eluded police. Pekelo said the spectators were in some 20 cars and that all were escorted in a caravan to the Pearl City Station for booking.

The only remaining hur- die for the attainment of that reality is the Legisla- Months Ago Site Group Bogged He said planning hasn't begun, pending allocation of the funds by Governor John A. Burns. And the Governor, he indicated, is waiting for his committee's report. A member of the site committee, asked about his group's status, replied: "That's a good question. "The committee is still intact," he added, "but has had no meetings at all." The last one was about six months ago, he said. He conceded that no conclusions had been reached because of political pressures, and expressed concern over this. "I was at the prison several months ago and it's Boundary Decision In Week in Sky Bus Federal Judge Martin Pence took the Hawaii boundary question under advisement yesterday as four hours of arguments wrapped up the current Sky Bus case. Judge Pence is expected to hand down his decision sometime next week on the boundary determination asked by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. . The final hearing trig-g e r e d strong arguments from both sides on the thorny issue of Federal-versus-State control of inter-island waters. The U.S. Government supported by intervenors Aloha and Hawaiian Airlines contend the waters beyond the three-mile limit are international. Island Air Lines, which wants to operate cut-rate Sky Bus service but lacks Federal Civil Aeronautics Board approval, says the waters belong to the State of Hawaii. Frank Padgett, I.A.L. attorney, in summation referred to the magnitude of the boundary decision to be determined. "This goes far beyond Island Air Lines," he said, "Right now it is the C.A.B. and State jurisdiction. Next it may be fisheries or some- thing else." Padgett said the bounda- ture, which will review teachers' salary question next February. The Board unanimously adopted a recommendation which will most likelv pro- vide for Class III teachers (master's degree or 5th year certificate) to earn a minimum or starting salary Sea Story ry question is of far greater importance to the people of Hawaii who should have jurisdiction of their Island channels. Padgett argued that the State claim to the waters goes back to a Hawaiian statute of 1846 which said that the Islands and the intervening waters were part of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The law was later repealed, he admitted, but said nothing was ever put in its place regarding the boundaries of Hawaii. Georgia In Road D A N I ELSVILLE, Ga. (AP) Two white men have been acquitted in the night rider slaying of Washington, D.C., Negro educator Lemuel Penn, but still face Federal conspiracy charges under the new civil rights law. Joseph Howard Sims, 41, and Cecil William Myers, 25. heard the verdict last night after a jury of white men deliberated slightly more than three hours. ' A gasp and murmur arose from relatives and friends. Superior Court Judge Cary of $513 a month, or $6,156 a year, and a maximum sal- ary of $758 a month, or $9,- 096 a year. Presently, the minimum or starting salary for Class III teachers is only $389 a month. The new figures coincide with what Civil Service em-' Chile Elects Pro-Western President SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) Pro-western Eduardo Frei, a moderate leftist, rode to a landslide victory last night in Chile's presidential election, setting back a serious Communist threat to the copper-rich Latin-American republic. Frei, 53, a reform-minded Christian Democrat, trounced Communist-backed Socialist Salvador Allende, who had pledged to nationalize nearly $2 billion worth of U.S. property in Chile and restore diplomatic relations with Cuba. "We have obtained a truly immense victory. I receive this mandate of the people with humility," the lanky, mild-mannered Frei told cheering thousands in a balcony speech. "In this hour there are no winners and no losers. My desire is to be President of all Chileans," he said. "This is a triumph not only for those who voted for me but for all believing in liberty and that justice which is a sacred bond for all Chile," he added. "Revolution!

Noonan, "has been in touch with the Governor's office." But he said no recommendation has been submitted. The group was expected to have its report ready for the legislative session earlier this year. Miss Noonan, former State Department of Social Services director, could not be reached for comment. Other committee members are Alfred Billy, the Turn to Page 2, Column 5 "It is clear that Hawaii has claim to jurisdiction. This was never removed, Padgett argued. "The waters belong to the people and the State of Hawaii." He referred to the Senate committee report accompanying the Admission Act which said the State would be comprised of all the Islands and the territorial waters. Of course, the question concerns the definition of the "territorial waters," he said.

Sims and Myers, identified by the F.B.I, as Ku Klux Klansmen, still face Federal charges of conspiring to injure, oppress, threaten and intimidate Penn and two companions. Penn was killed July 11 by a shotgun blast by as- sailants in a passing car. Sims and Myers will re main in custody until they ployees of an SR-17 rating currently receive, according to the Reverend Robert C. Loveless, . chairman of the Board's salary study com- mittee. Mr. Loveless told the group that teachers were com- pared to the Mi-17 em- ployees because both have Hong Kong Lashed By Vicious Typhoon (Combined Dispatches) HONG KONG Typhoon Ruby scored a bullseye on Hong Kong today with 160 mile-an-hour winds. At least 15 persons died, 35 are missing and feared dead and 250 were hurt. The Weather Bureau said it was the first typhoon in two decades to pass directly over Hong Kong. Twenty-seven persons were reported missing when the ship Dorar sank in Hong Kong Harbor. Thirty members of the crew were rescued. Police and emergency service forces dug frantically at many collapsed homesites in hopes of rescuing families buried inside. A spokesman said . the continuing heavy downpour probably would cause more landslides and house collapses. Ruby passed directly over Hong Kong and swept towards the Pearl River, heading for Canton in Communist China, according to the Weather Bureau. It was one of the worst to hit Hong Kong in years. Many of those injured were cut down by jagged Down Due Case that Congress intended to take away what was part of Hawaii." J. William Doolittle, here from Washington, D.C., to argue the Government's case, refuted the 1846 base. "This claim was abandoned 100 years prior to Statehood," he said. He argued that Congress set the boundaries in the Admission Act because the U.S. historically observes territorial waters as extending only to the three-Turn to Page 2, Column 3 Sims said, "We hope to post bond, and negotiations are now under way between our lawyers and the Federal Government to try to have the bond reduced.

There were no serious traffic accidents as Oahu began its three-day holiday weekend. Incomplete reports showed only 10 accidents between 6 p.m. yesterday and 8 a.m. today. Five persons were injured, one of whom needed hospitalization. Damage totalled less than $3,000. The roadblocks, set up around 10 last night and maintained into the early hours today, were manned by three four-men teams. Police report the public New Satellite Is Put Into Orbit CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) OGO I, a giant mon- ster-trom-Mars type satel- lite, whirled through space on a near-pertect oroit today while scientists tried to figure out a way to put it to work. Information relayed back to Earth by telemetry showed that one long boom, one short boom, and the omnidirectional radio antenna failed to deploy. Scientists of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration decided today not to turn on any of OGO's 20 scientific experiments un- til Monday night. At that time, the spacecraft will be within 25,000 miles of Earth on the return leg of its huge orbit.

They found that 150 drivers had been drinking, but only two that had to be sent home by taxi or with a friend. They issued 15 tags, most for driver license violations.

However, grinding continued through the day, he said, and mill backlogs were caught up. Gomez said management is, studying the grievance, which he did not identify.
