Mew S51h ooettes iiriMerritt Skyline PJIgobb The Old Bull-avardier Affair of the heart in Piedmont: Nancy Sox, the blonde, beautiful and TALL daughter of Dr. Ellis Sox, the San Francisco health director, has been attending California College of Arts and Crafts and living in Piedmont with the Joe Shupin family. Shupin's daughter, Adrienne, goes to Piedmont High and - has been trying to interest her English teacher, Alton Sprague, in the willowy Miss Sox. Sprague needed a blind date like he needed a hole in the head and passed off Adrienne's matchmaking as childish fancy until about a month ago when Adrienne showed up with a family gathering photo that included Nancy Sox. The English teacher liked the picture. Adrienne arranged a date and no matter that Nancy Sox is six, feet tall. Sprague flipped and three weeks later he and Nancy were engaged. Sprague is six feet six. 0 O 0 0 The two San Leandro housewives, out shopping for 3 ! BILL FISET into the used car lot right behind the other car. It turned out the car ahead was driven by a salesman in the lot and when the two housewives began berating him he merely told them to "Go to h !" This made the ladies angrier than ever, and they said the least he could do was cough up maybe $3, to help reimburse them for the eggs. . Then the owner of the used car lot appeared and he sided with the women and Jold his salesman to give them $3. The salesman again said "Go to h !" The owner reached into his own pocTcet and fished out $3 but this didn't satisfy the two housewives. They reached into the sea of broken eggs in the back seat pulled out a flat and threw it on the hood of the salesman's highly polished car. So he took a flat and threw it on the ladies' windshield. Then, in a scene right out of an old film comedy, the salesman and the ladies threw eggs at each other. The owner fired the salesman on the spot and told the ladies if they didn't get lost he'd call the cops. They left. So did the salesman. oooo Coincidence department: Oakland's Shirley E. Porter that's a man served 48 years with Santa Fe Railroad here and the other night they threw a retire ment dinner for him at Jack London Inn, built, incidentally, on the site of the old Southern Pacific Station. And the main speaker was Porter's good friend, Bob Gilmore, who's with Southern Pacific. Porter happened to mention he has three children, Bob, Nancy and Shirley, and Shirley is a daughter named after the father. Then Gilmore said he also has two girls and a boy, named Bob, Nancy and Shirley. Speaking of names, a new senior citizens' housing development, to cost some $857,000, will be built in Val-lejo and the company building it is Ascension Services, Int. And Sherri Raap, the new "Miss Oakland," is signed up to take flying lessons (her father is an ex-pilot) and plans to fly herself to the Miss California contest at Santa Cruz. And with that shape she wouldn't even need a plane. oooo Irish Johnny Taylor, the ex-fighter who operates the old electric car converted into an advertising sound truck, was out with campaign posters for a candidate for judge the other day and drove by a friend's home in Oakland and the friend was out painting his house. The friend is as bald as they come, so Johnny tuned up his loudspeaker and cracked: "My candidate doesn't need votes from bald men. He'd prefer they stay home out of the bright sun. Only men with hair should get out and vote." The friend, from his painting scaffold, chuckled and waved, and as Johnny started off again he spotted a Cadillac sedan at a complete stop, a' bald man behind the wheel staring in apoplectic fury. And sure enough, that evening the candidate for judge Zook Sutton got a phone call at home from an angry citizen who declared: "I don't know what kind of campaign you're running, or what kind of attack you intend on bald-headed men, but you've certainly lost my vote, and my brother-in-law's, and my wife's." Well, any guy with a bald wife has no sense of humor, anyway. oooo Out in Berkeley a panel of prospective jurors was being questioned in Judge Rupert Crittenden's court and each was asked if he had anything on his mind to prevent his giving the case full and undivided attention. This is customary and the answers' usually range from a sick wife to press of business, and so on. One lady said yes, she did. What was the problem? Well, she'd parked in a one-hour time zone and already had been there 90 minutes. Judge Crittenden coughed and said he thought he could alleviate her worry on that score. All right, judge. How? ADnue groceries, bought four of those big, open flats of eggs for $5 and had them laid out on the back seat of the car as they drove along Mission Boulevard. They were gabbing as they drove and were following pretty close behind another car. Suddenly the other car braked and swerved into sl used car lot. The girl driving jammed on her brakes and of course the eggs hit t h e floor of the car, which made the two girls so angry they pulled High Rise Apartments Near Lake Two new silhouettes will start rising this summer to join the increasing skyline of apartment buildings around Lake Merritt. One will be at 1200 Lakeshore Ave., just east of the lake and will occupy a site cleared several years ago in anticipation of the project. The other will be at 1555 Oak St., adjacent to the Scottish Rite auditorium. It will rise 16 stories and contain 81 living units of which 54 will be split-level with views of both the lake and the San Francisco skyline. A similar view will be offered by the 1200 Lakeshore project which will reach 24 stories, topped by a roof garden and social hall. It will have 173 units ranging from one to three bedrooms, each with at least one bath for each bedroom. A second roof garden of three-quarter acre size will be at the rear at the third floor level.

Walker said the building will be "truly luxurious" with 24-hour doorman service, piped-in music in its three elevators, FAST-GROWING U.C. Scientists Discover Two New Basic Particles BERKELEY Two new particles of apparently basic matter have been discovered by University of California scientists. They are being added to a fast-growing list of so-called fundamental particles which have been discovered in recent years, mostly at U.C.'s Lawrence Radiation Laboratory. The two latest are named the A-l and A-2. The latter may be the first of a new family of eight formerly undetected particles. The A-l's status is unknown. Big Chore For Transit Study Aide Richard M. Zettel was named study director for the newly formed San Francisco Bay Area Transportation Study Commission today, and immediately was handed a big chore. He was ordered to prepare a comprehensive master plan before July 1, 1965, covering the future of highway, freeway and rapid transit transportation in nine Bay Area counties. The assignment has an $80 million annual price tag on it. Unless the plan is in workable shape by the deadline, the Commission and the area it represents stands to lose that amount yearly in federal highway construction funds under a U.S. Commerce Department "no plan, no money" proviso. U.C. ECONOMIST Zettel is a research economist with the Institute of Traffic and Transportation Engineering at the University of California. He has filed several reports with the Association of Bay Area Governments in anticipation of formation of the transportation commission. The commission, which met today in its second session since formation, is headed by A. W. Gatov, San Francisco business executive. It met in the State Building in San Francisco. 37 REPRESENTATIVES The unit is made up of 37 representatives from various facets of business and civic life in Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin, Sonoma, Napa and Solano counties. .

FOR 1200 LAKESHORE Will cost $6 million and offer 173 units corridors and jointly-used fa- j cilities; radiant heat, and seven foot wide balconies, some as long as 65 feet. Total cost will be $6 million, Walker said, with construction expected to start in July and be completed by the end of next year. Architect is Sardis and Associates of San Francisco. Bra- ClST They were found after scientists bombarded other particles called protons with powerful beams comparable to cosmic rays generated in giant accelerators. Two teams of U.C. scientists headed by Drs. Gerson Gold-haber and' Donald H. Miller are responsible for the latest discoveries. They worked at the Brookha-ven, Mass., and U.C. bubble chambers. Dr. Miller and his group completed the research with tests in the 72-inch hydro Highway Game Is Fatal for Cyclist "Just plain horsing around" was blamed today for the death of motorcyclist Hugh T. Larrick, 22, of 2179 16th Ave., San Francisco. He and two friends, Don Bar ry, 27, of 851 California St., and Franklin K. Haitsuka, 26, of 399 30th Ave., both San Francisco, were returning from a beach party at 5:50 a.m. Haitsuka was a passenger m Barry's car.

For Tribune Delivery Service Phon by 7 p.m. daily, 12 noon Sunday Oakland main office 13th & Franklin Srt. 273-2323 nagh Construction Co. will be general contractor The Oak St. project will total $3 million and feature unique split-level units having frontage on both sides of the building. A view of the lake will be afforded from the front, and of San Francisco from the rear, according to Michel Marx, architect for the T. H. Guy Com- gen chamber here, using particles generated by a 6.2 billion electron volt machine. The particles, which exist for only very short fractions of a second, are created when the protons are hit by the very high energy beams. The protons are particles which rest in the nuclei of atoms. The discoveries, a spokesman for the Lawrence Laboratory said, advance nuclear science a bit further toward knowledge about the fundamental particles which make up the world. misjudged his distance and cut too closely. The car flung him 184 feet, the motorcycle went 174 feet in another direction. Larrick was killed. Investigating Officer William Aylward said the accident was caused by "just plain horsing around."

Gift Enables Parks to Light Arena Area A $3,000 gift from the Metropolitan Horseman's Association will allow the Oakland Park Commission to relight Sequoia Arena at Joaquin Miller Park, probably doubling its use. The four 20-foot light standards are expected to be installed by summer's end. Electroliers are also .being placed in the arena's entrance, area, just off Skyline Boulevard, and in both a public parking area and a horseshoe - shaped concession stand. Conrad J.

Fire Suits Are $1.7 Million Five injured survivors and the family of a man killed in the May 23 fire at All Hallows Par ish Hall have sued the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco for a total of $1.7-million. Six suits were filed in San Francisco Superior Court yesterday by Attorney Bruce Walk-up. They accuse the archdiocese of "negligently and carelessly" allowing more thar. 200 persons into the small hall to watch a Samoan fire dance. The suits say the hall was "in a dangerous and defective condition with insufficient and in- adequte means of exit." The suits also say there was inadequate means of preventing or controlling fire. Twelve persons were fatally burned in the blaze, touched off when a pan of gasoline used in the dance act was ignited by mistake. About 100 others were injured in the panic. A spokesman for the archdiocese denied any responsibility, saying the hall had been turned over to the Samoan Catholic Benevolent Association free for the evening. The largest suit filed is for $750,000 on behalf of Aouliuli Vaesa'u, 19, a steel worker, who received burns over 74 per cent of his body and is still hospitalized.

Viet Tourist Tax SAIGON, Viet Nam (UPI) -South Viet has slapped a "tourist tax" on its citizens. Fri., June 5, 1964 23 Berkeley's $1 Million 'Gateway' BERKELEY - The city will have a "million-dollar gateway" within three years if plans for improvement and beautification of Vh mile-long University Ave. are approved by city officials. Details of the $972,900 project, largest ever planned for one street in the city's history, were announced today by City Man ager John Phillip;;, who suggested the job be divided into two phases, west of the Freeway and east of Sixth St. to the U.C. Campus. From Sixth St. to Oxford St. the street would be widened to 80 feet, providing two moving traffic lanes in each direction separated by a landscaped 16-foot center island. There would be parallel parking on both sides of the tree-lined street. Also recommended is a new street lighting system on "davit" type poles and underground-ing of all utilities. 10-FOOT SIDEWALKS Where necessary, left turn lanes would require narrowing the median island to a five foot width. Sidewalks would be 10 feet in width. The city manager also suggested an intensive program to encourage private property owners to improve the appearance of their land and buildings. West of the Freeway the road would be separated by a 40-foot median strip. Two 24-foot road ways would allow two lanes of traffic both east and west. Street lighting would be installed on each side and the center strip landscaped in a manner that would compliment that proposed for the new Marina. Phillips recommended that this segment of the project be constructed in the spring and summer of 1965 and that landscaping be completed in the fall of 1965, all at a cost of $190,600. . SECOND PHASE The second phase, from Sixth St. to Oxford St., is scheduled for the 1965-66 and 1966-67 fiscal years at a cost of $782,300. Phillips emphasized in his re port that improvements planned west of the Freeway should be completed before the Marina is opened in 1966 and that improvements east of the Freeway be finished well in advance of the university's Centennial in 1968. The plan will go before the Planning Commission for a public hearing on June 17. Subsequently it will be considered , by the Civic Art Commission and the Recreation Commission. Final authorization is the responsibility of the City Council. Members of the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce and the Junior Chamber of Commerce plan to circulate petitions among merchants and property owners on University Ave. Saturday urging they lend support to the plan. Dutch Admiral Visits SAN DIEGO (UPI) - Rear Adm. Pieter Cool of the Royal Netherlands Navy toured naval installations here yesterday.
