Senate would fund benefits extension THE EL PASO TIMES, Thursday, August 12, 1932 Page 3-B WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Senate passed an amendment sponsored by Sen. Harrison Schmitt, R-N.M., Wednesday that allows for an appropriation to fund a federal program extending unemployment compensation. Schmitt said the legislation that passed by a 96-3 vote is "vital to New Mexico, where many workers in the copper and uranium industries and elsewhere are suffering extended periods of unemployment." Schmitt, in Washington, D.C., said the amendment "is to avoid any possible delay in getting the supplemental benefits program implemented once the legislation is enacted." Last week, the Senate passed another Schmitt amendment calling for the extension of unemployment benefits for 10 weeks for workers whose benefits have been exhausted. The extension is under consideration by a House-Senate conference committee. The amendment passed Wednesday "simply removes roadblocks in the appropriations process and will give New Mexico and other states the lead time they need to plan for the extended program." Schmitt said. In related action Wednesday, Schmitt said the Senate approved another amendment he sponsored that would require the government to start using proceeds from sales of surpluses in the strategic mineral stockpile. "There is at this time about $300 million in the transaction account that can only be used for the purchase of raw materials," Schmitt said. M V if i Parolee isn't wanted in slaying Harrison Schmitt . . . "Vital" to state SANTA FE (AP) - Police no longer are searching for a Penitentiary of New Mexico parolee in connection with the slaying of the pastor of SL Francis Cathedral. A prison official said Tuesday the man, Manuel Pete Nieto, 39, was properly paroled, contrary to what officials reported Monday. John Ramming, aide to Corrections Secretary Roger Crist, said Nieto was lawfully paroled from prison Aug. 3 from a 10- to 30-year sentence as an habitual offender, but he violated that parole by failing to show up at a drug rehabilitation center. Nieto was allowed to walk outside the prison walls because he was carrying parole papers authorizing him to do so, Ramming said. A warrant has been issued for Nieto's arrest in connection only with his parole violation, Ramming said. Richard C rie Baca, deputy State Police chief in charge of the Criminal Investigation Bureau, said Nieto had been sought in connection with the death of the Rev. Reynaldo Rivera, but late Tuesday, State Police Capt. Bob Carroll said officials concluded Nieto could not hae been involved in the slaying. "We are basically in receipt of information that tends to corroborate Mr. Nieto's time has been accounted for," Carroll said. The investigation into the killing cf the priest was continuing. Rivera's body was found south of Santa Fe Saturday with a gunshot wound to the stomach. Officials say he had been summoned in a telephone call Thursday to give last rites to a heart-attack victim. State Police Sgt. George Ulibarri said the phobic Cull oa "ut-fiiuiely a set-up." A condition of Nieto's parole was that he report first to his parole offi cer in Espanola and then to the rehabilitation center. Ramming said. When Nieto hadn't checked into the center by that evening, he was in violation of parole. Ramming said. Ramming said a corrections officer saw Nieto twice after his release in the downtown Santa Fe area and notified law enforcement officials. A notification that Nieto violated parole "may have been issued the day he failed to comply." although the officer who would have handled that is out of town. Ramming said. Ramming said that when he was c ailed to State Police headquarters in connection with the Rivera slaying about 11 a.m. Sunday he "re-entered cr entered" Nieto as a parole violator. Rimming said me state Parole Board's report on Nieto of Long Beach, Calif., said "he seemed to be well-adjusted." Silver teacher transfer checked By SANDRA SEARL Times correspondent SILVER CITY State Sen. Ben Alta-mirano, D-Catron-Grant, said Tuesday he is looking into a dispute over the transfer of special education instructor Tom Edmister from the program for gifted students at Stout Intermediate School. After a closed session last week, the Silver Consolidated School Board took no action to overturn the administration's decision to transfer Edmister. Parent groups have objected, saying the reassignment will deprive the gifted students of an instructor with special endorsement in work with the gifted. Resource room teachers with no special training will replace Edmister in a program that teaches several types of special education students. A letter from the parents' group to school board members last week contends the transfer "represents a major change in the Enrichment Program." Altamirano said he met with about 25 parents and will be contacting the state superintendent's office about the matter. Alan Morgaa, assistant state superintne-dent for instruction, said the beard had the right to meet in closed session on what he termed "a delicate matter to discuss in public session." But Morgan also said the board is responsible for requesting justification from local district administrators regarding proposed policy charges. If it is not satisfied by that justification, he said, the board may overturn an administrative decision. Morgan said that while research has indicated that combining different types of special education students benefits all children in the program, there are some cases where it has not worked. "In certain specific exceptionalities, there is an advantage to having a teacher who has had training in that area," Morgan said. State sues to get back reparations ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - The state Crime Victims Reparation Commission is seeking repayment of more than $15,000 paid this year to crime victims or their survivors.

Nothing new is reported in educator's murder case ALBUQUERQUE ( AP ) - Police continued their investigation Wednesday into the weekend shooting death of a prominent Alamcgor-do educator, but Albuquerque Police Sgt. Nick Alarid said officers have nothing new to report. Ralph Garner, vice principal of the New Mexico School for the Visually Handicapped in Alamogordo, was shot to death about 12:30 a.m. Sunday at an apartment he had taken on San Mateo Avenue to be near his father, hospitalized in Albuquerque.
