PANEL REJECTS RADAR FOR CHP School Securiiy However, the security agents, who are gaining added importance in the board's eyes as campus violence mounts, got what they sought in their brief strike, perhaps setting a precedent for teachers and other employees who will be negotiating for contracts. The board agreed to enter the 325 agents in the state Safety Members Retirement Plan for peace officers, giving the agents more liberal disability benefits and the right to retire at age 55 with a full pension. The agents, who are represented by California School Employees Assn., local 665, had argued the risks lf CosAnflete 5hne 21 Tun, July 1. 1980 Plft I they encounter on the job make the regular school employee retirement program inadequate. Most school employees, except teachers, are in the state's Public Employee Retirement System, which permits retirement at age 60 with full benefits and has limited disability provisions. The new retirement plan, contained in a two-year contract accepted by the board Monday, was seen as a major victory for the agents, who had remained adamant in their demands. Agents Pact OKd Security agents in Los Angeles city schools who walked off the job for seven days in May won an improved retirement package from the Board of Education Monday. Later in the same meeting, the board claimed budget troubles and voted to seek reductions in the health and welfare benefits for all other employees in bargaining sessions this summer. statewide speed law enforcement, although 331 cities in the state use it Opponents, led by the Teamsters Union, have been able to kill many similar radar measures in past years. Truck drivers insist it would be a speedtrap device, despite a CHP promise to use it only in marked cars and in plain sight CHP Commissioner Glen R Craig argued in vain for the Maddy resolution, which had been previously approved by a 21-15 Senate vote and a 7-3 Assembly Transportation Committee vote. It was sent to the Rules Committee for a so-called "perfunctory review." "My objective is not to write an increasing number of tickets," Craig said. "My objective is to increase compliance with the 55 m.p.h. speed limit" Craig also countered claims that radar is sometimes inaccurate and sometimes clocks the wrong car or trees, as reflected in a television show film clip provided by Papan.

But the Tudeh party is especially vulnerable because of its unflagging support for the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and this has earned it the scorn of other Islamic groups. The people along the Caspian tend to believe that they have been neglected by the central government in recent years, particularly in the shah's great industrial programs that saw plants constructed almost everywhere in the country except north of the Alborz Mountains. In seeking more central government assistance, these people were not reassured when President Abol-hassan Bani-Sadr spoke here recently and declared that government funds would not be quickly forthcoming. "Your province is one of the most developed in the country," Bani-Sadr said. "If we give you the oil money, you will help make Iran a class (as opposed to a classless) society." FUND RAISING Continued from Third Page raise from people who might present conflicts of interest for them. "I think the people who resist it are completely out of touch with what people perceive to be the unfairness of the process," Levine said after his bill was defeated. The bill was introduced in response to disclosures earlier this year by The Times that four Regional Coastal Commission members had used their positions to raise about $200,000 from people who appeared before them. Three of the four commissioners were elected officials representing local government on the commission. It's the lowest coach fare to San Francisco, on the only 747 going.

"I have every confidence we are capable of training our people and will demand that the equipment be used properly." But Papan said statistics show 31 of fatal traffic accidents involve drinking drivers and 2.8 involve excessive speed "How is radar going to help us on that?" he asked. "The biggest killer is alcohoL" He added that he believes it would be better to increase the patrol's strength by replacing the 600 officers it has lost since 1975. Craig replied it would cost $24 million to train, equip and pay these officers, in contrast to the $15 million in federal funds to obtain radar equipment for 1,300 CHP vehicles. "Obviously, radar is the most cost-effective way to tackle the speed enforcement problem we are faced with," the commissioner said. He noted that if California does not get enough drivers to comply with the 55 m.p.h. speed limit it could lose federal highway funds. The people here live well by comparison with Iranians elsewhere, Bani-Sadr went on. He suggested that the nation's resources should be used to help those with the greater need. Of his speech, one political observer commented: "That's somewhat bitter medicine for the Caspian. And it is not calculated to endear the politicians in Tehran to the people of the Caspian." Monterey Park Man Jailed in Tax Case A Monterey Park income-tax preparer who pleaded guilty to nine counts of presenting false documents to the Internal Revenue Service was sentenced Monday to spend 40 days in jail and donate 2,000 hours to community service during a five-year probation term. Edward Monroy, 48, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Manuel Real. He was accused of claiming false deductions on behalf of his clients and submitting fictitious receipts for charitable contributions, doctor payments and finance charges.

A 3-4 vote was cast against a motion to send the controversial resolution authored by Sea Ken Maddy (R-Fresno) from the Assembly Rules Committee to the Ways and Means Committee without recommendatioa The Rules Committee is chaired by Lou Papan (D-Millbrae), who has called police use of radar "a big rip-off." Four years ago, Papan received a CHP speeding ticket for driving 90 m.p.h. and he has been a leading opponent of the agency ever since. Maddy was bitter after the defeat of his resolution saying, The public in his (Papan's) district ought to think twice about reelecting him. The kind of arrogance Mr. Papan has displayed puts in question his motivation." California is the only state that does not use some form of radar for Tourism Not Continued from 7th Pate The main cash crops are rice, tobacco, tea and sturgeon. In the past fishing in the Caspian was tightly controlled by the state, but now it is open to all, and some officials fear that the sturgeon may soon become depleted. Sturgeon roe, caviar, used to be the main cash crop from the Caspian, but now its future is also in doubt Before the revolution, caviar production was about 225 tons a year, of which 190 tons were exported. In Astara, the rice crop is the main topic of agricultural concern. "We have plenty of rain in the Caspian," Astara's Mayor Hasan Zahmat-kesh said, "but sometimes it comes at the wrong time of the season for rice and so we have no crop." This year, however, experts are predicting an abundant rice crop. The revolution is reflected in the graffiti scrawled on public buildings and on the pedestals now barren of the statues of Reza Shah and his son, Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, who was driven into exile last year by the revolutionaries. The left wing and the conservative Islamic Republican Party battle it out with these scrawls and in their rival newspapers as well The conservative Muslims tend to focus their attacks on the Moujahede-en, the Muslim radicals who were active in the revolution and have strong support among the young and in the universities. The battle is a miniature of the bigger fight going on between the two groups in Tehran. By contrast the Communist Tudeh party is less a target for Islamic attack, mainly because it has followed the Soviet line in strongly backing The W1 mm m r V V exceptional Women's active blazers, tops, slacks. 100 sport swimwear. off: goods.
