Man Gets Prison in Purse Grab Alfred Jones Jr., 21, of 3010 Adeline St., has been sentenced to a one-year to life state prison term after having been found guilty of knocking a woman down and grabbing her purse. Jones, who steadfastly denied any part in the purse snatch, was captured by police a few blocks from the attack scene at Etna and Derby Sts. in Berkeley. The woman had been accosted after she left a bus to walk to the California School for the Deaf where she was employed. Four other men who had been in a car with Jones moments before the crime were released for lack of evidence. Berkeley police said six other similar robberies had taken place in the area previously but the crimes ended with the arrests. Jones was sentenced yesterday by Superior Judge William J. McGuiness. New Zoning Plea Set on South Shore ALAMEDA - The South- shore Land Co. yesterday sub mitted a new petition for re-zoning the west end of the South Shore Development. The action came less than 24 hours after the City Coun cil denied a prior rezoning petition but indicated it would go along with a 15-acre area of apartments along the shore line west of Grand St. instead of the 40.8 acres requested. The new petition incorporates exactly that change, out lining a rectangular area along the beach that is 394 feet deep and 1,743 feet long The rest of the 40.8 acres would be zoned for single family homes. Charles T. Travers, vice president of the land com pany, said he recognized the lack of a "buffer zone" between the apartments and homes. But he continued, "If we add the buffer zone, we may find ourselves in the position of going to the council with more than they have indicated was acceptable to them." He asked that the Planning Board, if it desired a buffer zone, initiate such action separately "so as to completely eliminate the risk of delay and confusion." Like the denied rezoning request, the new petition encompasses the 108 - acre area known as Unit II. It asks fewer apartments than the denied rezoning, but more than current zoning. Current zoning allows an estimated 4,515 population over the entire 108 acres; if the new petition is approved, that figure would increase by about another 2,558. The new petition will come before the Planning Board on Monday night and will be scheduled for a public hearing on either June 25 or July 9. 7 Want to Work' Says Sick Marilyn HOLLYWOOD 0JPD Marilyn Monroe, embattled with her studio, said from her sick bed, "I'm ready and eager to return to work on Monday." Under fire from 20th Cen tury-Fox for failing to report for her movie role this week, the blonde actress said she was following doctor's orders by remaining in bed all week. Producer Henry Weinstein said yesterday the studio was considering legal action against the star and of replac ing her in Something s Got to Give." A Fox spokesman said Kim Novak and other actresses were under consideration for the role. Marilyn, who has worked only 12 days in the film thus far, said, "I'm as concerned about the picture as anyone. I've looked forward to working with our director George Cukor, and Dean Martin and Cyd Chariss?." Two weeks ago the glamour girl raised eyebrows and blood pressure on the set when she went for a nude swim before the cameras. Because she failed to appear for work this week the studio announced it would "take action." Designer Outwits 'Fashion Pirates' By JEAN SPRAIN WILSON AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK W) People who design for the rich, as Count Sarmi does, have found a way to outsmart the rapidly growing numbers of fashion pirates the talented American women who stitch up their own clothes. When Jacqueline Kennedy proved with her trim figure and sheath "nothnig" dress that in simplicity lies greatness, ladies at modern do-everything sewing machines ecstatically began to make their own. At the opening of his winter collection yesterday, Sarmi proved that purity of line can produce great fashion, still produce great big price tags, and what's more defy amateur copying. The secret is in the fabrics. Conceivably with tailoring talent and scissors sharp enough to snip rugs, the home seamstress might recreate heavy, hairy woolen coats, or looped wool suits and dresses vaguely like the kind shown today that is, fi she could find the ruggy materials. If she knew the secret of maneuvering a raised insert belt, or the intricacies of a cross-draped back, she might possibly shape some black wool or crepe or alaskeen into pretty cocktail dresses. But if a woman did successfully reproduce Sarmi's black faille dress with the panel-pleated skirt and the deep, deep decolletage, her husband would swear that the scissors had slipped. Would anybody's neckline be that low intentionally? Nor could a seamstress possibly recreate those intricately beaded satins and laces that Sarmi's models wore, unless she had a long life-span and many nimble-fingered brownies on her side. Even if she could, she'd need a mink ranch in the backyard for the finishing touches black mink linings, white mink piping, or brown mink collars and cuffs. The simple truth is that to a wearer of a Sarmi design nobody will ever say, "Did you make that yourself?"
