12— Uklah Dally Journal, Uklah Calif. Wednesday, Jutv 3, 1974 Wildcats march in SF tonight David never saw to many Lions as the Ukiahi WUdcata and San Frandacana are aedng this week! Starting in the heart of the San Francisco financial district at Montgomery and Pine, and ending with a hopeful flourish in sturdy and steady strides and lines past, city hall some ltt miles later, the Ukiahi Wildcat* Marching Band tonight will proudly represent not only its own community but the state of Michigan, and its lions, at the 57th annual Lions International Convention Parade. • The massive parade, with the peoples, flags and costumes of some 200 nations, territories, islands, regions and states, as well as assorted marching bands, will begin at 7 p.m. and continue for several hours. Assembly time for parade units 66 through 88, including Michigan's Lions fronted by the Uldahi band in 85th of 150 starting positions, is set for 7:30 p.m. on Montgomery, just off Pine near the Post Street initial line of march. 'Green Monster' is boon fo Wildcats Transporting a crack high school marching band, such as the Ukiahi Wildcats Marching Band has become, is akin to transporting a three-ring circus and its gear from place to place. Apart from three Petaluma Western Charter Service buses, loaded with baggage, bandsmen and small instruments, plus assorted adults, the trip to Portland by the Ukiah Wildcats Marching Band entourage included not only acting nurses Verna Todd and Charla Neilson in a well- decorated VW, and a few band parents, but also the "Green Monster", as someone has dubbed the big Chevy suburban van driven by Don and Dorothy Starks. Don and Dorothy truly are "band sweethearts," both as individuals, and because they first met when each was a band student at Boise high school. Their son, Raymond, was a band member under Nielson at Ukiahi a few short years ago, too. Without the help of the Starks, and people like them, including for the recent Portland trip Ken Levy, Ukiah, and Fred Wilkening, of San Francisco, who arranged for and hooked up a donated 6 by 14 foot U-Haul trailer; Arnold Bogner, of Mendocino Van and Storage, who protected delicate instruments with furniture pads; and Charles Sankovlch, of Sanky Signs, who painted and furnished signs on the trailer advertising the Ukiahi Van, band trips would hot be as efficient and smooth as they amazingly are. The Starks literally lived with that van and trailer, and its seemingly "tons" of uniforms, instruments, music stands, a 70-pound U-K-I-A-H banner and assorted flags, including the Canadian Maple Leaf and Portland Rose Festival banners, for five days. , Today Don, who is office manager for Total Real Estate Service here, is transporting another load of band paraphernalia to San Francisco where the Ukiahi band is competing in the big Lions International Parade tonight. (Dorothy, clerk of the board of supervisors, will miss this parade:) At that, Portland and San Francisco are shorter than the Starks' beautiful trip to Victoria a year ago with the band. True the chaperones and attendant adults accompanying the* 106 band members to Portland were kept busy. Settling the excited young people down at night, polishing shoes,'fixing hair-dos, checking uniforms, trimming hairlines, etc. etc. etc. People like Jim Howlett, assistant band director for the Portland trip; troubleshooter Margaret Weselsky, Jane Zeek, Marsha Young, Mr. and Mrs. Pete Onori, Mr. and Mrs. Bing Wong, Mrs. Ron Bushby and the tireless Mary Farney and Agnes Gomes, and others tried to take some of the load off Band Director and Mrs. Rowland Nielson. The work of Verna Todd and Charla Neilson in "band-aiding" toes and heels of a hundred or so marchers was preventive medicine before the 5Vi mile hike- and helped ward off blisters and other problems.' Yet, if it also weren't for the donations of Mr. and Mrs. Robert MacDougall, Mark Grover, Talmage Entertainment Club, Masonite, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Cooper, Judge and Mrs. A.B. Broaddus-, Mr. and Mrs. Alan Auger, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Cook; Mrs. Alice Allen; Ukiah Chapter 816 of Women of the Moose, and others, no trip would have been possible at all. • Given this total community support, and continuing to merit it, the Ukiahi Wildcats Marching Band, and also the rising Pomplita-Ukiah junior high band, and Redwood Valley junior high drill or band units, will march to new places and new honors in the future. Ukiah's marching young band adults are its best spokesmen,' by musical note and marching deed!

The Wildcats will be mixing with Lions from all over the" world, and will be .competing with sdfme of the finest high school bands in all of California for a share of the evening's honors. There's a chance to win not 100 but 200 maximum points for marching and maneuvering, music and general effect; and a chance to win some "green stuff as well as other laurels. The competition, as well as the judging requirements in marching and maneuvering, music and general effect, will be stiff, but the parade through some of the most famous, historic, exciting and colorful parts of San Francisco in one of the world's biggest parades will be a memorable occasion, with the Wildcats rising to the occasion to cap an enjoyable day that is expected to include a trip to Steinhart Aquarium in Golden Gate Park and a dinner before assembling for the parade. Marching and maneuvering and music will be scored alike, 75-total points each, and general effect 50, or 200 points in all. Marching and maneuvering, for the uninitiated, will include straightness across ranks and down files, interval and distance,, uniformity of cadence, military bearing and precision. Music will be rated as to quality and selections, expression of rhythm, instrumental balance, tone, including smoothness and control, richness of volume, intonation and ensemble blend. General effect will be graded on uniform and general appearance, drum major (appearance and position, accuracy and precision of baton handling), the esprit de corps, originality, entry and exit. Every effort is being made to - see that bands are separated by one, or more of the 150 or so delegations of Lions, which may range from 100 to 800 or so Lions, per delegation or combined delegations. Thus each band will get a chance to be seen and heard by the judges. Ukiah will be competing with some old and distinguished marching rivals, and a few new ones. Armijo, selected to lead the Illinois delegation; and the Torrence Youth Band of Torrence are among the many fine high school bands competing. Invited high school or youth f non-professional bands, along, with Ukiah, together representing some of the finest bands in California, include the Weldonian Youth Band of some 150 from Hayward; the Fairfield Scarlet Brigade of 100; Moreau of Hayward, 70; Dublin high school, 70-80; Concord, 120 Cupertino, 176; Wesjtmoor of Daly City, 86; Antioch, 70; Torrence Youth < Band, Torrence, 120; Armijo of Fairfield, listed at between 7580; Live Oak, of Morgan Hill, 106; Samuel Ayres, Milpitas, 140; and San Mateo, 80 marching band members. Like several of- the bands, Ukiah may not be at its peak strength in num*bers, but Director Rowland Nielson and Drum Major Steve Price expect to have the predominently Frosh, Soph and Junior band members participating sharp and competitive, as - well as representative of the best' in music, and discipline, to well represent not only Ukiah but also the visiting Michigan delegation. David never saw so many Lions— but like David the Ukiahi Marching Wildcats expect to do alright! Card's father believes his son not a killer WILLOWS, Calif. (UPI),,— The father of John W. Card is convinced his son is not a killer and he is pleading that he surrender to police. "I just don't believe he has done the three murders he is suspected of. I don't believe it. I don't believe that John could do it," said the man's father, retired farmer Tom Card, of nearby Oroville. The plea from the distraught father was broadcast Tuesday by Sacramento radio station KFPK. Speaking in a drawl with his voice breaking, the elder Card said, "I would like to ask him to give himself up. "I would like to tell him if he would call me I would him and talk with him and be happy to go in with him." The FBI, meanwhile, joined the 5-day-old search for the 6- foot-2, 240-pound woodcutter, suspected in grisly slayings of three persons and the kidnaping of three others. Authorities said the "worst is possible now" for the three hostages, Kay Skillen, 34, a widow, and her children, Debbie, 12, and Wesley, 13. The three have been missing since Saturday. "The possibilities are very shocking," said Butte County Sheriff's Capt. Leroy Wood. "We are greatly concerned for their safety—the worst is' possible now." Also Tuesday, deputies in nearby Glenn. County disclosed that two of the slaying victims were brutally strangled with baling wire. Dr. C. B. Griffiths, a prominent Willows veterinarian, and his daughter, Lisa Ann, 13, were bound, with wire, stabbed and then strangled with wire, deputies said. ^ Their bodies were found in the backyard of their secluded home Friday. Griffiths' wife, Nancy, was found shot to death earlier in a field near the Skillen ranch on the outskirts of the community of Durham. The manhunt for Card, who was facing charges of illegal firearms possession and stealing hay from a ranch, centered around old timber camps in the region where the suspect was known to have cut wood. • Education date is extended On May 31, the day the G.I. education entitlement expires for veterans discharged between Jan. 31, 1955, and July 1, 1966, the President signed PL 93-293 granting a 30-day extension to the eight years entitlement veterans normally have. Educational assistance checks for sdme 150,00^K veterans whose G.I. Bill eligibility was extended by one month will reach them by late June or earlier, the VA also announced today. The extension allows 85,000 veterans pursuing correspondence courses during May to continue through June. The extra month of eligibility extends also to nearly 4 million other eligible veterans not currently training. Commenting on the pay problem posed by the former May 31 deadline, VA officials explained: "Most veterans receive educational assistance checks at the beginning of each month of training, but veterans who continued training after the deadline could not legally be paid for June training." The new deadline, July 1; 1974, for veterans Separated from service between Jan. 31, 1955 and July 1, 1966, applies only to school training, it was pointed out. Veterans taking farm cooperative, flight, apprenticeship and on-the-job training have until Aug. 30,1975, to complete training. Veterans : Administration officials noted bills are pending in Congress to increase allowances, and to extend G.I. bill eligibility from eight to 10 years. Council won't meet tonight There will be no meeting of the Ukiah City Council tonight, due to a lack of quorum of available councilmen because of vacations or other reasons, it was announced today. The next meeting of the council will be July 17 at 8 p.m. at the Council Chambers: Ehrlichman gave okay for Ellsberg break-in WASHINGTON (UPI) — Egil "Bud" Krogh Jr., co-director of the White House plumbers, has testified his old friend and patron, John D. Ehrlichman, gave the "go ahead" for the 1971 Ellsberg break-in and told him later he had been less than candid with the FBI about it. Krogh, just out of' prison, Tuesday gave the federal jury the trial's most damaging information yet about Ehrlichman. Krogh said he met Ehrlichman at a family gathering in 1951 or 1952, went, to law school through his strong influence and became his White House deputy in 1969. Ehrlichman and three others are in the sixth day of their trial for conspiracy . in connection with the plumbers' attempt to get psychiatric information about Pentagon Papers defendant Daniel Ellsberg. Krogh, the seventh witness, was to return to the stand today. Tuesday, Associate Watergate Prosecutor William H. Merrill led Krogh through a long series of meetings, memos and calls between the two men in July and August before the break-in during the 1971 Labor Day weekend and in March and April, 1973, when the break-in became public knowledge. On April 27, 1973, Krogh said he got a call in Miami from Ehrlichman saying he had been interviewed by the FBI. ' "He said he had had to dissemble somewhat" with them," Krogh testified. "It meant to me to be somewhat less than candid or not tell everything about the subject under investigation." Krogh told of making a call to Ehrlichman Aug. 30 or 31, 1971, after E. Howard Hunt Jr. and G. Gordon Liddy, masterminds of the operation, had returned from a "feasibility" study of the target, the office of Ellsberg's psychiatrist, Dr. Lewis J. Fielding, in Beverly Hills, Calif. "It was made from my office. We conveyed to him, as I understood it, he was at Cape Cod, we conveyed to him, we felt the operation —I'm not sure of the words we used; it was an open line —could be conducted, all the conditions had been met, we thought this was something we could do," Krogh testified. "I recall his listening and asking Young (David R. Young Jr., the other co-director, who was on an extension), 'do you agree with this?' We both gave our independent assurance. Krogh said that "very shortly" after the break-in, he showed Ehrlichman photos revealing that Fielding's office had been ransacked to make it appear the burglary was "a drug rip-off." William Penn called wood substance with a Soul." COURTESY DOCK — The Pope Company of Sacramento has installed a vital part of its contract to improve boater access at the south launching ramp. Kenneth Edmonds of Ukiah tries the • _ _ __ new landing dock on a hot afternoon this week. Paving jfcMaf— j •*••""•*"»•• URIAH parking area is the next step which should be completed soon.
