48 t OjLkUub2tlg:ribunc Wed., Nov. 3 ,1 965 hspedor Exam Ruling Up in Air r: - - ROGER SESSIONS Composer Sessions Rejoins U.C. Roger Sessions, the noted American composer who taught at the University of California from 1945 to 1953, will return for one year, according to the U.C. department of music. Sessions, whose mammoth operatic effort "Montezuma" caused a sensation in Berlin in 1964, has received a one-year appointment to the Ernest Bloch professorship for the 1966-67 academic year. Since leaving Berkeley, Sessions, 69,, has taught at Princeton University and the Juilliard Conservatory in New York. There are as yet no plans by either the Oakland Symphony or San Francisco for perform--anc; cf.r.'g miL : : Plagued by memory trouble, Oakland Civil Service commissioners yesterday couldn't agree on exactly what they meant in a police department ruling handed down almost a month ago. That ruling was produced Oct. 5 after the board ordered interested citizens from the room and argued behind closed doors, an apparent violation of the Brown Anti-Secrecy Act. Reported as "unanimous" decision, that ruling found that police sergeants in investigative jobs are working within their job classification. OPPORTUNITY It also declared that all sergeants be given a reasonable opportunity to qualify for such assignments and directed 'that the method set up to fill the jobs must "satisfy the board." At yesterday's session, Police Chief Edward M. Toothman was to present his proposed methods for filling the jobs for the board's scrutiny. Present also were members of the opposing Police and Fire Coordinating Council, who have carried on a four-year fight against an administration plan to substitute sergeants for inspectors in investigative work. J. D. Burdick the council's attorney, recalled that in the public part of the Oct. 5 meeting, the board had gone on record as favoring competitive exams to fill the jobs.' EXAM NEEDED? "It's o b v i o u s," Burdick charged, "that the administration isn't going to give any." Board members agreed that their month-old ruling is clear and "speaks for itself." but after that the alleged unanimity of Oct. 5 disappeared. . Commissioner Charles Goadv meant to require a competitive exam. Stephen Bechtel agreed But ' Commissioner William Stumpf queried, "Didn't we discuss some sort of competitive screening?" Chairman Harold Lorenzten said, "Yes," 4ut later added, "I'm not sure the board in total felt an exam is required. I think some did, some didn't." Other' commissioners sat silent as Stumpf, added on another test, "I think we were talking about tenure. I feel it's important. "Let's be blunt," he told po lice officials. "You've down graded the rank of inspector and are getting sergeants to do the work for a lesser rate of pay." NO AUTHORITY Deputy City Atty. Mark Shragge, representing the chief, earlier had argued that an exam and tenure were unnecessary. Shragge has acted as the chief's attorney and simultaneously as legal adviser to the board during the four months of hearings. Presumably as its legal adviser, Shragge yesterday told the board it "had no authority" to give men tenure in criminal investigative work. "That would create a new rank," he said. At meeting's end, the Board again retired into still another secret session. Chairman Lorent-zen would say only that they wanted to discuss "a hiring or a firing" matter. The Brown Act, aimed at secrecy in government, allows private sessions on those matters. Observers speculated however that the commissioners were only trying to refresh their memories on what they supposedly had decided in last tiadijuonth-'s "unammQus-dtffc Bottler Gives Up Expansion Plan The Coca Cola Bottling Company of Oakland last night withdrew a request that the city council close part of 13th Street bounding its West Oakland plant. Outside the meeting, the firm's president, John F. Hig-gins, said plans to double the capacity of the plant at that location have been abandoned. Peter J. Crosby, the firm's attorney, told the council that "insurmountable difficulties" in clearing the underlying title to part of 13th Street, between Cypress and Kirkham Streets, caused the withdrawal. Oak Center Hearing Tonight Additional delay -or long-awaited progress hang in the balance tonight as the Oak Center Redevelopment Project plan faces its final public hearing., The Oakland City Council will put the proposal for repair or demolition of homes in the 200-acre area of West Oakland up for public comment at 7 p.m. at Lowell School, 14th and Market Streets. ' The plan, which has cost nearly $730,000 in federal planning funds and taken some four years, i staggered through a City Plan ning Commission hearing several weeks ago. It was approved as is mainly because time had ran out for commission action. But the commissioners made it clear they were not happy with the proposals for street closures and for traffic circulation through the area. Yesterday the city council held a "pre-hearmg briefing" session with the Oakland Redevelopment Agency and the same problem reared. its head. The police and fire departments are opposed to the proposed closing of 12th St. at two points to provide for school expansions. They fear it will slow down emergency vehicles. Leslie K. Moore, agency chairman, pleaded with the council to consider the overall, long-range advantages of the p 1 a n which will convert a blighted area into decent housing. "Don't let the one issue of 12th Street becloud the full picture," he said. Mayor John C. Houlihan said it appears that the council will be faced with "Hobson's choice," tomorrow. Rattier than have the plan lose by a bare majority, it might be better to hold over the final vote, he said. He said the hearing can be held as planned but it would be continued to allow further discussion of the traffic situation. SUITS made M WITH rffflfff GREAT ffljgf.
