Girl Scouts Carnival Day This Saturday Saturday is Senior Carnival Day for 21 troops in the Oakland Area Girl Scout Council. The annual event will be held from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at the Veterans Memorial Building, 200 Grand Ave. Senior scouts will be in charge of 26 booths, including a country store, fortune telling, spook house, movie and refreshment -booths.

Elwyn Bobet, Mrs. Leo Cecaci, Mrs. Bobert Hitchcock, Mrs. James Morrison, Mrs. Eric Salmon and Mrs. Eugene Cox. The Oakland Public Schools' new planetarium at the Chabot Science Center will be a two-story, cube-shaped building, perched atop a single central pier. That was the concept em braced by the Oakland Board of Education Tuesday when they approved preliminary plans for the facility prepared by the architectural firm of Van Bourg, Nakamura and Associates. At a meeting of the buildings and grounds committee preced ing the official Board of Educa tion meeting, architect Mitchell Van Bourg estimated a stripped- down version of the plan could be built for about $53,000. With all of the extras a roof top observation platform, rest-rooms and an exhibition hall downstairs the building would cost an estimated $80,000. :- The viewing area and projection equipment will be located on the second floor of the building. An audience of 100 will be able to sit under the 30-foot perforated dome when the planetarium is in use. The building will house $37,000 worth of equipment purchased on a cooperative basis by Oakland Rotary clubs, the social district and the Federal Govern ment. Van Bourg also submitted a more conventional one - story building, but pointed out this building would use up too much- buildable space at the science center. Use of the central pier founda tion for the two-story structure makes it possible to suspend the building over a steep incline which would not, otherwise, be buildable. The board authorized school officials to contract with the architects for preparation of final plans and specifications. Man Dies in Hotel Room Fire Alfred Wunstorff, 70. was burned to death early today when he apparently fell asleep while smoking a cigaret in his San Francisco hotel room. Fire inspectors said the lighted cigaret set the mattress afire in a first floor room at the Wood land Hotel, 473 Ellis St. STONE LIONS TO GUARD ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS The two lion statues that have guarded the Alameda County Welfare Building for so many years are going to-a more appropriate environment when the old building is torn down. The Board of Supervisors Tuesday voted to present the stone replicas to the East Bay Zoological Gardens and Botan ical Society and they wilTbe placed at the entrance of the zoological gardens in Knowland State Park in East Oakland. The board bypassed a suggestion by Raymond H. Miller of the Botanical Society," that $250 to $300 would be required to sandblast and clean the statues and build new pedestals for them. ' City Says Land Suit Weakened by Cop Deputy City Atty. Mark Shragg told the Civil Service Board the action of an Oakland policeman weakened his case during trial of a city condemnation .suit for East Oakland street construction. He said Patrolman Constan-tine. Poulos provided confidential" traffic information to the opposing lawyer. The officer, who has admitted giving the other attorney the information, has asked the board to overturn his $200 fine and six months suspension for alleged misconduct. $49,520 AWARD Shragg testified Tuesday the defense attorney received a copy before he did of a special report on driveway accidents on East 12th Street near the Dallman Company headquarters. ' The report had been prepared by the traffic division in an attempt to refute Dallman's claims the street was hazardous. The plumbing firm eventual ly was awarded $49,520 for the loss of 248 square feet of land at East 12th Street and 22nd Avenue. The only remaining ac cess to the Dallman plant is on East 12th. r Poulos' attorney, Rod Duncan, Stanford Fund Hits $73 Million Stanford alumni groups connected by telephone in cities from coast to coast reported Tuesday night $72,841,089 toward the $100 million goal of the University's PACE campaign. The simultaneous meetings in 36 cities from New York to San Diego were held to spur thousands of volunteer workers in Stanford's Plan of Action for a Challenging Era.

The Nulaid association has as sets of more than $30 million and the Hayward association more than $6.5 million. Hartenfeld succeeds Robert G. Christensen of Hillsborough. P Every day 86 PROOF 1962, 0L0 CHARTER 0IST. CO., LOUISVILLE, KY. enjoy said at the opening of the board hearing that Shragg and City Traffic Engineer Jay Czizek had promised earlier to provide Dall man with any traffic informa tion it needed. NOT CONFIDENTIAL . He said the division gives similar information to a number of individuals and firms. "It was not a confidential report," he added flatly. Duncan conceded Poulos gave the report to a private Investigator on a street corner but de nied there was anything furtive about the action. He said the officer was on his way home and that the meeting place was more convenient. The city is represented in the appeal hearing, which will con tinue at 3:30 p.m. next Tuesday, by Asst. City. Atty. Edward Goggin. Montcla ir Rezone WMeaneYes Councilman Howard E. Rilea voted "no" when he meant to vote "yes." And some 100 residents of the Montciair District left the Tuesday night meeting of the Oakland City Council somewhat confused but under the impression that a proposal to build a 25-unit apartment house in their single-family home area was stalled. They learn today that Rilea later pressed for reconsideration and won his point. The apartment house will be up for approval again May 16. It is backed by Saul Pearce, builder, for property at 552 Montciair Ave. in a highly restricted "A" zone. Pearce applied for an exception from zoning regulations. Pearce wants to erect a building of five stories three with eight apartments each and a penthouse. The planning staff, recommending against the proj ect, noted that it would be "completely incompatible with the surrounding low-density development" and said it would not even be legal for a "B" zone, where some multiple housing is allowed. : THE VOTES Residents of the area protested and filed opposing petitions. The staff recommendation and a 5-1 vote of the planning commission against the project was noted. And the council voted 5-3 in favor. Joining to overrule the planning commission and the neighbors were Councilmen Fred Maggiora, Dan Marovich, Rob ert V. McKeen, Rilea, and Mayor John C, Houlihan. Standing by the planning commission's denial of the application were Councilmen Felix Chialvo, Robert L. Osborne, and John JH. Reading. Councilman Harry R. Lange was absent. Then came a motion by McKeen to draft a resolution to grant the exception. Amid some confusion, this came out 4-4, and lacking the necessary five votes, was defeated. At this point the council had refused to deny the application, and also refused to grant it. SECOND LOOK Later Rilea explained he had Intended to vote yes, and asked for reconsideration. By this time, Houlihan had left the meeting and another indecisive vote was imminent. But Reading reversed his vote so as to get the matter back on the council calendar. Chialvo and Osborne continued their opposition as the draft of an ap proval resolution . was ordered on a 5-2 vote. - Bert Pearce represented his father in arguing for the project He was supported by one neigh borhood resident, Mrs. Edward Jones. The opposition was headed by Mrs. Eloise B. Cushing, James Trezona, and Paul Mmossian John Bias said he is a friend of Pearce but dislikes his project.
