Name Is Ahglih' A Mysterious Caller a aan rrancisco woman toraey received a phone call f f one of the three Alcatrai es- capen, offering to lurrender himself to the U.S. Marshal, The Examiner learned yesterday.' The call was received at 11 a.m. Wednesday, and the FBI sent two agents who spent the rest of the day at the attorney's office. ' NO FOLLOW UP But, as of last night, no second phone call was made. Mrs. Eugenia MacGowan, who with her attorney husband, Leslie, has an office at 2245 Irving St., told The Examiner about the mysterious call yesterday. "The mart called and talked to Mrs. (Carolyn) Moore (the Maceowans' receptionist). "He asked for my husband but Mrs. Moore said he was In court, so the man asked if EUGENIA MacGOWAN there was anybody else there, and she transferred the call V ', v t ! A CALLER: Mrs. MacGowan? A: Yes. Q My name is John Ang-lin. I want you to call the U. S. Marshal and tell him I will to me." DAY IN COURr . The following conversation ensued: jJliiaaru-j-1-j-.r.-j-j-j-u-j-y .............. surrender to you. I want my day In court. A I don't know you. Q Read your paper! (Hangs up) Mrs. MacGowan, puzzled, got a copy of The Examiner for Wednesday morning to read about Anglin's escape with his brother, Clarence. and Frank Morris. "I called the U. S. Mar shal'i office and they gave the report to the FBI, and the two agents spent all day out at our office," Mrs. Mac Gowan said. TRIPS TO PRISON Her husband, it was noted, had made several trips to Alcatraz in the past years to consult with prisoners there "I never met the Anglins or Morris," he said. "But I guess they have a good grapevine there and they probably know who's coming onto the island before they even arrive." Mrs. MacGowan said the FBI had instructed her to tell the caller should he call back - that he "certainly would get his day in court." Lowrey Pushes Canyon Dam SACRAMENTO, June 14.- (UPD Assemblyman Lloyd W. Lowrey, today called for State and Federal authorities to speed up their investigations into the feasibility of constructing Iron Canyon dam on the Sacramento River near Red Bluff. "The early construction of Iron Canyon is the only acceptable method of preventing floods in Butte basin and in reclaiming the large area for agriculture," Lowrey said In a prepared release. 'Not Very Pardonable The three men who made the break from Alcatraz had to 12H years to go on their sentences. If caught, however, each can expect up to five more years to be tacked on. John W. Anglin, 32, had the least time to serve. He could have been released Feb. 9, 1968, at the end of his 10 year sentence. His brother, Clarence, 31, was due to be released Feb. 9, 1979, to end a 15 year sentence. The third escapee, Frank Lee Moss, 35, was scheduled to be released Sept. 18, 1970, after 14 years in jail. John Anglin and Morris already had passed their first possible parole date and had been turned down. Brothet Clarence was scheduled for his first review Feb. 9, 1963 After each parole refusal, there is an annual review until parole is granted or the man completes his sentence, In the case of the three escapees, Alcatraz Warden Olin D. Blackwell said "they were not very parolable. 7 lllEnsign Leaps Off Gate Span A young Naval Reserve of ficer, relieved of duty in Long Beach because of ill health, jumped to his death from mid-span of the Golden Gate Bridge early yesterday Two motorists witnessed the leap of Ensign Ronald C Milligan, 23, of Oroville. OVER EAST RAIL They said he stopped his car, got out, trotted to the east rail and vaulted it He was clad in a walking shorts, tennis shoes and a sweat shirt. The Highway Patrol said Milligan and his wife were on their way home and had stopped overnight in San Mateo. The wife said he was depressed and they had quarreled. Mrs. Milligan became concerned when she awoke yes terday morning to find her husband gone. PAPERS IN CAR This was about the same time that a tentative identification of him had been made from papers in his car. Residents of Oroville. Butte County, remembered Milligan as a popular high school student and an outstanding scholar and athlete. He was a star forward on the Oroville High School basketball team of 1955-56 when it was con-siderec the best in northern California, winning 29 consecutive games. He entered the University of California in 1956 as a business administration major, graduating in 1960. He was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, Skull and Keys Club. Winged Helmet Club and the Rugby Club. A Coast Guard boat searched the area under the bridge for several hoars, but did not find the body. It was the 228th known suicide from the span. :- Still No Action on Gate Span Arches Five weeks have now passed since the Golden Gate Bridge directors said they would look for alternatives to their much-criticized plan for traffic-control arches. But no meetings have been held on the matter and as of yesterday none was even scheduled. "We'll have a meeting as oon a I ret time." said Dan iel Del Carlo, chairman of the directors building and operating committee. TOO BUSY' But Del Carlo, who is sec retary-treasurer of the San Francisco Building and Construction Trades Council, said he has been so busy with ne gotiations to end the con struction strike he's had time for little else. "Besides that," Del Carlo added, "some of the directors have been on vacation." He said too that "when we get around to the Finch thing, we'll have to take all day to study it" ROADWAY LIGHTS "The Finch thing" Is a sug gestion by Prof. Daniel M. Finch, research engineer at the University of California, that a system of roadway lights be installed on the bridge. The purpose of either the arches or the lights would be to provide a fourth lane for rush-hour traffic. But at public hearing five weeks ago, some 33 speakers criticized the arches as not only ugly but Inefficient BROADLOOM ALLtN'S OPEN SUNDAY 21 SS JealaeraSemi Korda Art Sold For $1,300,516 LONDON.
