The three had been clinging to their tiny boat for nearly two hours before the pilot of an aircraft landing at the runway over the water saw them and notified the tower, which relayed the message to the coast guard air rescue base. Pulled from the bay by helicopter hoist were* John Collins, 28, of 749 Baden avenue, South San Francisco sewage plant worker; William R. Macke, 30, of 4285 Cabrillo way, Martinez, an "official of the bay area water pollution district, and Walter Newton, 40, of 49 Rockridge avenue, Daly City, a San Mateo county health department sanitarian. All were given emergency treat- ment for shock and exposure at :hc coast guard base and transported to Peninsula hospital by ambulance. Macke and Newton, after further treatment, were discharged by the hospital. Collins, however, remained in shock and was hospitalized. The three men, according to Chid' North County Sanitarian Rein I Lingemann, went out in the bay at about 6 a. m. to take water samples for the pollution district and the San Mateo county health department. Their boat apparently was suddenly overturned by a sudden gust of .wind, sending them, into the icy bay waters. Pilot of the rescue helicopter was Lieut. Comdi-.

'Superman' Shoots Self (Continued from Fage 1) to retire when some friends came by for a visit. Objected To Visitors "He was irritated about the friends arriving and he ordered them out," Johnson said. "But then the argument was settled and Reeves went back to his room. . "When he went back to the bedroom, Miss Lemmon said, 'he's going up there to kill himself,' " the detective said he was told. "Bliss heard a drawer open and Miss Lemmon then said 'he's getting the gun.' Then they heard a shot and Bliss went up and found Reeves'dead," Johnson said. Bliss called police and said, "you better get someone up here right now. My friend has shot himself." Miss Lemmon, who said she was an actress and had planned to marry Reeves on Friday, claimed "intuition" warned her of the suicide, Johnson said. The actor left no notes but Johnson said the "inference was that he was despondent and out of work." Johnson said Reeves was planning a wrestling career and had intended to box a two round exhibition with light heavyweight ·champion Archie Moore today in San Diego. Life Is A "Challenge" Reeves, who was born in Woodstock, Iowa, first appeared in the movies in the 1937 production of "Gone With The Wind," in which he played one of the Tarleton twins. Reeves had appeared in numerous other film and TV productions. His motion picture credits included many Hopalong Cassidy films, "From Here To Eternity," "Winged Victory," "So Proudly We Hail" and "Till We Meet Again."

' Management Survey Due REDWOOD CITY -- A special management survey of the coun- Belmont Youth Back From Mexican Jail Nightmare A .Belmont youth was back in California today, asserting he had spent 14 months in a Mexican prison without a bed, clean clothing or a bath. Robert Peterson, 18, is staying ty health and welfare depart-i now at Norwalk w i t h - a n uncle, ment will be conducted this year by the county grand jury. Jury Foreman Lee Ham said the survey will include an investigation of the advisability of splitting the sprawling agency into two departments. The jury agreed last night to hire the San Francisco accounting firm of Ernst and Ernst to conduct the annual; county audit. The company bid $11,000 for the job, compared with a bid of $9000 by Peat, · Marwick and Mitchell, the firm that made the county audit last year, flam explained the jury selected the more expensive bid because Ernst and Ernst .proposed a more extensive survey. The health and welfare department survey will be in addition to the regular annual audit of all county departments. "We are going to make a recommendation," . Ham said, "that each year a particular department of the county be given a special study from a management efficiency standpoint. We started with the health and welfare department because it is the largest department." The study, he said, will have three phases: an efficiency survey, the investigation of the possibility of splitting the department, and the extent of the department's compliance with recommendations of past grand juries. The county chapter study commission has proposed that the board of supervisors be empowered to separate the functions of the department at its discretion. In other action last night, the jury heard expert testimony on 'the subject of juvenile court law. Witnesses were District Attorney Keith C. Sorenson and Lt. Peter Bolich, the sheriff's juvenile officer. Ham. said one member of the jury had been told by a police official that "kids can get away with murder if fchey now the juvenile law." Bolich told the jury,- however, Ham said, that he iis satisfied with present laws governing the handling of juveniles. Ham said the testimony was of an educational nature-and'the jury plans no particular action on the subject. Father's Day . . . Sunday, June 21 Ciire dad that gift of time!

Petersen said he went to Tijuana in May, 1958, "to see what at was like." "I found out," he added. He said he borrowed a ear from a Tijuana cab driver, visited San Diego overnight and that when he returned the cab driver demanded $300. Two policemen with the driver arrested him, although he offered to pay the cab driver the $60 he had in his pocket, he said, adding that the policemen took the S60.
