Crisis for Student Funds at CSM llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllHIIMIIIIIIIilHIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIII. Adventurers Are Rescued A Foster City teen-ager who spent yesterday afternoon drifting along the Bay on a Huck Finn-style raft with a friend only to be rescued when the adventure got out of hand, said he might do it again after it was all over. The y o u n g s t e r s , 14- year-old Mark Shanks and Rick Otanez, both of Foster City, said they found three telephone poies which had been nailed together with plywood to make a raft, and they decided to embark on their own afternoon on the Mississippi. Grim reality soon set in. however. After the boys set themselves adrift, they soon lost the pole with which they were propelling themselves. Then' they discovered that the current was w a r d s the Saa Mateo Bridge. Mark said later 'that "At first it seemed like we could drift back in to shore, but then when we saw that we were going out we started screaming for help." A woman who was walking her dog on the Beach Park i'evee heard their cries, and n o t i f i e d the watchman on the dredge docked on the boulevard. 'Police were also notified. The watchman went out in a launch, and rescued the lads who said they were fine except for having wet feet. But then later, after he had time to think about it, Mark said it was "pretty fun" and "I might do it again, as long as I don't get too far out." Okay Huck Finn, but how does Jim feel about that? going out, taking them to- iiiiuiiimiiiiiimiimmiiiiiniiiii miiiiiimiimiiiiiimii'.iiiiiiiiiiiiii New County Youth Program Readied Planning for a Youth Service Bureau in Pacifica is about completed and the project is due to become operational soon. Recruitment by the County Delinquency Prevention Commission of a coordinator .who will be paid $16,000 a year, is in its final stages. The deadline for applications is October 6. ·'The project will get off the ground when the new man is hired," says Rchard B. Hazel, commission consultant who has been doubling as acting coordinator. The purpose of youth service bureaus, as stated by the California Delinquency Prevention Commission, is "to offer an incentive and opportunity for local agencies, 'both public and private, to pool their resources and develop innovative programs to divert young people from entering into the juvenile justice system." Once in operation, the bureau might work this way: 'Take a 14-year-old boy. picked up by police for joyriding in a "borrowed" car. Ordinarily, he would be booked at Hillcrest Juvenile Hal! or cited to the probation department. In this case, however, he would go' in for a conference with the coordinator and it just might turn out that he would be referred to a social service agancy in the community and would not have to go to HiUcrest or juvenile court. "Many youngsters are being caught up in the juvenile justice system 'that shouldn't be there," Hazel says. "If these cases can be handled in the neighborhood, we will all come way out ahead." Juvenile court is not what it used to be, according to Hazel, because of the growing emphasis on the legal rights of those brought before the court. "Once the juvenile court judge could be paternal, helpful. Now he finds himself presiding over legalistic adversary proceedings." Helping put delinquent or delinquent-prone youth on the right track--away form the court--is, of course, the chief purpose of the program. But its by-product. Hazel points out, will be to help relieve overcrowding at juvenile hall and the workload of the probation department and judge. The Pacifica bureau is one of nine in California that have been granted state and federal funds of $25,000 a year for t h r e e - y e a r demonstration projects. "I am confident that this concept is around Second Front Pa?e SAN MATEO TIMES AND DAILY NEWS LEADER Peninsula Section SECOND MAIN NEWS* * SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1969 Section II, Page 27 ty," Although Pacifies has the second highest delinquency rate in the county it has received little attention form social service agencies. Hazel states. In 1967 the city had 10 per cent of all referrals to the probation department although its population is only five per cent of the county total. The city of Pacifica has been "exceptionally cooperative" in planning for the bureau, Hazel states. Adequate office space in the city hall has been promised and the Delinquency Prevention Commission is counting on the cily donating accounting serv-; ices, a telephone, office furniture and supplies. Hazel gives credit to County Supervisor Jean Fassler, Pacifica's first mayor, for arranging for the city's contributions. . The probation department is to donate one full-time officer to the -project, on the; theory that :he bureau, will save .the department at least the time of one employe. Hazel -is counting on :he County Social' Service Division to donate a worker and the Family Service Agency and (Catholic Social Sprvice to also contribute professional services.

A similar grant bound at all by actions of a prior council Back in 1963 the student council first began appropriating $10,000 a year for two years each for the Skyline and Canada colleges, the two new San Mateo Junior College District campuses and $5.000 the last year. Today's problem stems from the CSM. students' new discovery last school year that purchase of student body 1 cards was optional, not mandatory, and af'er the student unrest of last fall the bottom has fallen out of the student body card market. This is believed to have been helped along by the student council, which backed some of the agitators' demands with $24,000 for various "actions" programs, mainly College Readiness. At the time there also was a widely publicized threat to curtail other programs, such as athletics, to provide the funds for the new activities. So far. only 22 per cent o!

Where the student coffers were filled with $84,000 last year at this time, the -spring card sale took in only $9,000 and this fall about the same, meaning an operting budget of only $18,000 for student government. Already there has been nearly $200,000 from CSM operations transferred to the two new cam- nuses. according to published figures: These include SHO "00 f"om (he CSM bookstore, with half to each of the n"w go:n? ine lectrical · ado P ted in eg special ckys at World to kicxoff Fire Thrown into a six-man cell in ! for t (,e'r s'ores: $30.«00 Ed Burton On Probation Edward R.

"When they had their fun," he wrote, "they threw him back in his bunk, so hurt he could hardly breathe." Later, he said, he was given the choice of becoming a homosexual plaything, or suffer more beatings. "Said defendant told him he did not want any more beatings, that he could rather die than' submit," Nix wrote. However, he said, the beatings and groin-kicking resumed, and he was homosexually attacked. He was told he would be "found accidentally dead," if he told the guards.
