14 E AkhtUiiifcffrtbutte Thurs.,Nov.ll,1965 BROADWAY SNARL- Tunnel. Traffic Plan The opening of the new Calde-cott Tunnel removed temporary ily, , anyway a massive traffic clot that formerly plagued commuting rush hour drivers. But participants in the morning rush hour find the clot has not disappeared. It simply moved down the vein of Broadway toward the heart of Oak- land. Freewheeling inbound motor- -fsts now back up along a IV-' mile. stretch of Broadway between Patton Street and Coro-nado Avenue. There are only two lanes to carry traffic there and signal lights further impede the flow of cars. To provide a third lane, the city's traffic engineering division proposes to prohibit 7 to 9 a.m. parking along the west side of Broadway between the two streets. The new parking hours, which traffic engineers hope to put into effect sometime after Dec. 1, would eliminate the last two-lane bottleneck on Broadway - from the tunnels to downtown Oakland. From Coronado southward, rush-hour parking already is prohibited on Broadway. From Pat-ton eastward to the tunnels, traffic moves rapidly although there are only two lanes. Arnold Johnson, city traffic engineer, estimates that 3,300 cars pass Patton on Broadway between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m., with 2,150 of them Oakland-bound and traffic heavily congested. The addition of a third lane should allow a capacity of about 2,400 cars per hour; with traffic flowing freely. But it won't be long until that limit is reached, Johnson said. --He said that more and more cars are expected to come pouring into Oakland through those tunnels. It appears that Broadway will have to carry the load until the Grove-Shafter Freeway reaches the hills, probably not before another eight years, Johnson said. Directors Of AC OK Pay Boost AC Transit District's "white collar" workers will get the same five per cent increase in pay recently granted its unionized workers. AC directors yesterday approved a pay hike for some 175 supervisors and non - contract workers effective Jan. 1. It will cost about $68,400 annually. Union workers got a 10 per cent increase effective over - two years earlier 4his year, under terms of an arbitration board decision. That award covered 1,200 workers and including health and pension benefits will cost the district $2.1 million over the two years. The non - union workers also will get an extra holiday and improvements in welfare, pensions and vacations. XonceiLPostpoiifdL Tower to Dominate Center of Church A concert by Chester Russelle, baritone-bass, will be at 8 p.m. Nov. 19 at the First Unitarian Church, 14th and Castro Streets, instead of tomorrow as previously announced. Oakland's fire code insists on a free-standing fire escape stairway for a new $400,000 activity center planned by St. Paul's Episcopal Church. So church officials, with architects Norris Gaddis and Win-field Hyde, decided to make the thing the most conspicuous feature of their structure next to the church at 114 Montecito Ave. They moved hs location up to the front of the lot, and designed a brick and stone tower to encase it which will rise to about 70 feet, 15 feet higher than the new five-story building itself. ON THE CHURCH the tower, to cost about $50, 000 even outstretches the tower on the church by a few feet. Details of the new building were outlined before the city's Board of Zoning Adjustments yesterday. The Rev., Darby Rptts, rhnrch rector said the building will primarily be used by residents of the $10 million St. Paul's Towers retirement home under construction across the street. An underground tunnel will connect the two buildings. Proposed are a library, lecture hall, craft shop, offices and enough classrooms to accommodate up to four grades of a private school, Dr. Betts said. The church seeks a variance in a city regulation that at least 25 parking spaces be provided for the new building. EXTRA PARKING Rev. Betts noted that the 279-unit apartment will have 228 parking spaces. Plenty of extra parking will be available, he said, because fewer than half of the 234 residents signed up have reserved parking space. The board will rule on the matter Nov. 24. In other business, the board approved: A new union hall and office building proposed by Teamster's Local 70 for a four-acre site at 70 Hegenberger Rd. in an area zoned for light industry. A request by St. John's Lutheran Church to provide only 16 of the required 40 parking spaces for its planned $80,000 church at 1824 55th Ave. New School Plan Under Study ALAMEDA A proposal to build a $180,000 temporary school administration center on South Shore property is being studied by the Board of Education. The proposal, submitted by school superintendent Donald Roderick, calls for setting up buildings, which, if need be, can be used for classrooms. "We could, if we have to, convert the entire facility into a primary school," Roderick said. He called the buildings "relocatable." -The center would also house the instructional materials department which is now located in the 100-year-old Everett School building. Demolition of the Everett School, to be replaced by child care facilities and transfer of adult education offices to ti&itfngus depressed with a pad present Oak Street administra tive offices, are also included, in the proposals. The board,,, which said it was "sympathetic" with Roderick's proposal, ordered the staff to make a complete analysis, including further cost studies, before it takes action. Ambulance Are Briefed Ambulance drivers , from throughout California have just finished a course in Oakland which will help them keep the spark of life flickering in desperately ill or injured patients. The whirlwind one-day course is given at Highland Hospital by the Alameda - Contra Costa Medical Association and other Alameda County medical Institutions. :..... Approximately " 200 drivers from as far south as Whittier and as far north as Eureka came to Oakland last week for the specialized medical instruction. 2-DAY COURSE The course was held on two days so that half of the staff of each ambulance company could stay on the job while the other half came to Oakland for classes. A dozen Bay Area doctors gathered at Highland to pass on special knowledge to help the ambulance men handle all kinds of cases. The drivers and stewards learned how to handle everything from children with convulsions to homicidal maniacs. MENTAL CASES They learned, for example, that for certain kinds of mental patients, it is best to get all the help you can before approaching them. They are less apt to do something desperate if confronted with a number of people. The drivers were told not to lie to paranoic patients. Tell them exactly where they are going to a hospital, the-doc-tors advised. If a suicide quiets down, be on your guard, they were told. Chances are he has just figured out a way to complete the job of killing himself. Children with convulsions are a major problem for ambulance drivers. A pediatrician told them to keep the youngsters' ded tongue depressor and as sist the breathing. The ambulance men studied various ways of keeping patients from bleeding to death, how to remove injured people from badly damaged cars, and even watched a film on how to de liver a baby. Yidow of GM Man Leaves $4,288,904 A $4,288,904 estate was left by Mrs. Bessie Beckett Fuhr of Oakland, widow of a General Motors executive, it was disclosed in Alameda County Superior Court yesterday. Mrs. Fuhr, of 950 Larkspur Road, was 80 when she died Sept. 16, 1964. Her husband, Edward W. Fuhr, Pacific Coast sales manager of the Chevrolet Motor Car Co., died in 1937. Lincoln Rode, family attorney, said the fortune grew from $300,-000 left by Mr. Fuhr, the principal part of which was 9,000 shares of General Motors, which increased to 33,000. Tax appraiser Robert Fairwell reported to probate Judge S. Victor Wagler that the inheritance tax on Mrs. Fuhr's holdings was $519,509. Her will of July 8,-1949, provides this distribution: To a daughter, Maryellen Fuhr of Lafayette, $2,191,647; a niece, Arlene Beckett Van Geld-er of 733 Jean St.,, $1,037,378; grand nephews Ian. J.. VaaGeld-er, 496 Mandana Blvd, Daniel B. Van Gelder, 733 Jean St., Scott D. Van Gelder, Los Gatos, and a grand niece, Rosanna Van Gelder de Oineda, Taxco, Mex., $258,094 each. . Nevers Opens Book Drive For Troops STANFORD - Ernie Nevers, Stanford University great, yesterday kicked off Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity's drive to send books for Christmas to American troops in South Viet Nam. The drive is scheduled to continue through tomorrow. It has attracted offers of support from Oakland, San Francisco, Hay- ward and Santa Cruz. Spokesmen for the Delta Kap-pa Epsilon chapter said: "We feel that contributions will show our soldiers that those demonstrating against government pol-icyare only a small vociferous group which does not represent the majority of students." Search Intensified For Hit-Run Driver PITTSBURG - Little Erica Cacioppo died a week ago today. The three-year-old girl probably never knew what hit her some 18 hours before she succumbed to head and internal injuries in a Walnut Creek hospital. She also had suffered a broken leg. Pittsburg police know, , however, that she was run over on Davi Ave. by a rapidly-moving -panel truck. And officers are intensifying their search for the driver, who fled the scene and disappeared with his vehicle in the anonymity of westbound traffic on the Highway 4 Freeway. Police Chief Sal P. Jimno appealed today for public assist ance in locating the driver and his truck. To assist in the search, he is circulating throughout California and particularly in the Bay Area an artists' conception of the driver, reconstructed from witnesses' descriptions. He also is making available to law - enforcement agencies a photo of a vehicle of the type involved in the fatality. Officers know there were 48 feet of tire skid marks at the accident scene. They're reasonably certain the vehicle they seek is a rear-engine, unlettered, medium green Chevrolet van a 1961 to 1964 model. It probably had California license plates. The driver is believed to be a white male adult between 25 and 33 years of age, with brown hair and a fair complexion. Witnesses said he wore glasses. If he is found, the driver may be charged with felony hit-and-run manslaughter. Alameda Man Apparent Suicide ALAMEDA - Frank B. Lu-can, 75, of 308 Santa Clara Ave., was found dead this morning, an apparent suicide. According to police, Lucan was sitting in a chair in the living HIT-RUN DRIVER? revolver on the floor beside him. He had shot himself twice in the head. - Mrs. Lucan said her husband had been in ill health for some time. No notes were found. 3 Murder Convictions Reversed The State Supreme Court says it isn't enough for police to tell a prime suspect of his right to remain silent under questioning. He also must be advised of his right to an attorney, the court said yesterday. The court returned the 6-1 ruling in reversing the murder convictions of two men and a woman for a Long Beach killing. New trials were granted for James R. Stockman,- 52, who was sentenced to death, and to Miss Genevieve Humble and Ronald A. Cathcart, both given life sentences. They were convicted of the murder of Carrol C. Elwell on Jan. 12, 1964. Elwell was shot to death and robbed of $20. The three gave confessions and incriminating statements to officers. The court found that the police warned them of their right to silence but failed to tell room0iiHsJhQ neys. : "Both warnings, and partial-larly the latter, must be given," the court said in an opinion written by Justice Raymond E.
