Aiding the socially handicapped SAN JOSE, Calif. (UPI) - A neighborhood of mentally ill, retarded, alcoholic and drug rehabilitation residents is the classroom for a group of San Jose State University students. Now .involving 300 students and volunteers, the "Community of Communities" near the university campus is an effort to draw the socially disadvantaged persons back into the community. Living in the area within a mile radius of the campus are some 1,700 former patients released from mental hospitals , following state financing cutbacks, about 2,000 persons undergoing alcohol and drug rehabilitation and 14,000 senior citizens, according to Santa Clara County agencies. The students, who. receive, university credits, get together with the residents for dinners, dances, field trips and street clean-ups, and also teach a variety of classes ranging from macrame to self-defense. "There Weren't any activities or anything for us before the Community of Communities came along," said Joyse Jones, 42, a former mental patient. "We'd just, sit around the porch just feeling bad about ourselves and everybody. Just living from medication to medication." The program began two years ago with 15 students and quickly grew. Vlf we have a philosophy," said Sharon Hager, a spokesman for the project, "it's that normal treatment encourages normal behavior. We are anything but therapists. Most of these people have been through every kind of therapy from electronic shock to gestalt. As soon as you come on like a therapist, they.clam up." Students in tne-^roject, who can enroll for from three to nine units of academic credit, are studying such fields as business, engineering, law enforcement, art, physical education, occupational therapy, nursing, ecology and English. The large number of socially handicapped people in the area live mostly in aging Victorian and gingerbread houses that once catered to student boarders.

YARBROUGH Clerk 7-19,1974 Merry-go-round Oil men tried to block did Friday, July 1,9, 1974 Ukiah Dally Journal, Ukiah, Calif.- Geo thermal expansion area proposed By JACK ANDERSON By JACK ANDERSON WASHINGTON - Locked in the secret White House files is evidence that four American oil companies supported Arab interests against their own country during the Arab-Israeli war last October. At the height of the fighting, the chairmen of Exxon, Mobil, Texaco and Standard of California signed a joint memo to President Nixon and rushed it by special messenger to the White House; The memo, which was delivered on October 12, clearly was timed to influence the President against sending military aid to Israel. The oilmen correctly warned that Saudi Arabia and Kuwait would retaliate by cutting back oil, production., •, •. Added the memo prophetically: "There is a high probability that a single action taken by one producer government against the United States would have a snowballing effect that would produce a major petroleum supply crisis." The President didn't read the memo, however, until after he had already ordered a massive, emergency armslift to Israel on October 14, The Arab oil producers struck back, one after another, with an embargo against the United States; The greatest of the oil sheikhs, Saudi Arabia's Ring Faisal, halted oil shipments to the United States on October 20. The Saudi embargo was administered and enforced by the four American companies which together form the Arabian American Oil Company (Aramco). When Ring Faisal banned oil deliveries to U.S. military forces, the four companies scrupulously carried out the king's order. The supreme irony is that the four Aramco partners had amassed hundreds of millions of dollars in tax credits and oil subsidies from the American taxpayers for the specific purpose of preserving Saudi oil for U.S. defense. Yet Exxon, Mobil, Texaco and Standard of California, putting profits ahead of patriotism, didn't hesitate to withhold Saudi oil from the U.S. armed forces, at the snap of Ring Faisal's finger. The four oil giants were put on notice by the king at a secret meeting in Geneva on May 23, 1973.. He had come to Switzerland for a rest after visiting Cairo when President Anwar Sadat had put pressure on him to use oil as a weapon against the West. The king told representatives of the four American companies, according to an intelligence report, that he didn't intend to let Saudi Arabia's traditional friendship with the United States isolate his country from the Arab world. Unless the Aramco partners brought pressure on the U.S. government to change its Middle East policy, he warned, they could lose their Saudi oil concessions. He called upon them to impress this message upon both the U.S. public and U.S. leaders. "Time is running out," the king declared, emphasizing repeatedly that "you could lose everything." With this warning still echoing in their ears, the oilmen became panicky when the United States showed favoritism for Israel during the October war. The four chairmen — J.R. Jamieson, Exxon; Rawleigh Warner Jr., Mobil; M.F. Granville, Texaco; and Otto N. Miller, Standard of California — drafted a blunt "Memorandum to the President" on October 12. They turned it* oyer to Aramco's politically potent counsel, John J. McCloy, who sent it by messenger to the White House s,taff chief, Gen. Alexander Haig. In a covering letter, McCloy explained: "The chief Aramco shareholders with large concessionary interests in Saudi Arabia wish to have this brief memorandum summarizing the critical situation in regard to the flow of oil supplies from the MORENO'S CLUB Open from 10a.m. to 11 p.m. Every Day LUNCHEON SPECIALS DAILY in the soon as Middle East placed President's hands as possible." The memo warned that "the Arab negotiators in Vienna have stated that their governments were angered by the speech of Ambassador (John) Scali before the United Nations which they interpreted as a dear expression of support of the Israeli position.... "They also report that a request from the United States to Ring Faisal that he urge Arab combatants to retire to (the pre- attack) ceasefire line produced great irritation. We have been told that the Saudis will impose some cut-back in crude oil production as a result of the United States position taken thus far. "A further and much more substantial move, will be taken by Saudi Arabia and Kuwait in the event of further evidence of increased U.S. support of the Israeli position. "We are convinced of the seriousness,of the intentions of the Saudis and Kuwaitis and that any actions of the U.S. government at this time in terms of increased military aid to Israel will have a critical and adverse effect on our relations with the moderate Arab producting countries." Raising the familiar cry of national security, the chairmen pleaded that "much more than our commercial interests in the area is now at hazard." The real stakes, they pleaded, were "bom our economy and' our security." . Bureau of Land Management Ukiah District. Manager Mel Clausen announced today plans, to study two areas for possible addition to The Geysers known geothermal resource area (KGRA) in Lake, Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma Counties. Since January 1974, BLM has received $7,323,000 in bonus bids for 12 leases on national resource land in the KGRA. The high value placed on geothermal leasing rights has created an intense interest in areas outside the present KGRA. Approximately 300,000 acres in the Ukiah BLM district is now covered by over 300 lease applications. Due to the size of the area . under application and the requirement to prepare detailed environmental analyses, the total study will be conducted over several years. Initially, two small study areas have been selected to the southeast and west of the present,KGRA. National resource land and private land with minerals reserved to the federal government are included in the study area. In September 1974, BLM resource specialists will begin the analysis of impacts upon the environment which could result from an expanded leasing program. Private and public interests will* be consulted throughout the analysis. If BLM determines that the issuance of leases would be a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the environment, an environmental impact statement will be written. The public will have ample opportunity to review the statement and comment on its adequacy.

First, he asked if "it is true that no nuclear waste disposal system has yet surfaced that is truly satisfactory and without serious question." No, it is not. The AEC has,developed plans for a long-term storage facility which is based on the concept of retrievable storage. Under this method, solidified waste will be stored in canisters, cooled and monitored. It will be possible to retrieve the canisters and remove them to another repository at a later time for permanent .disposal. New methods, aimed at reducing or even eliminating long-term maintenance requirements, are being developed and show promise of commercial application. Just two of these options include disposal in geologic formations or transmutation. In an oblique reference to nuclear power plant emergency core cooling systems, Mr. Crowe", asks if they ever have been tested. Indeed they have. Many thousands of tests have been conducted which provide information concerning the physical phenomena known to occur during a postulated loss- of-coolant accident (which never has occurred.) The chances of a loss-of- coolant accident occurring have been estimated to be once in a million to once in 10 million years for any given reactor. Obviously, sound engineering practice does not require building and ' seriously damaging a several hundred million dollar plant to determine if emergency core cooling systems will perform adequately. One does not need, for example, to duplicate the 32- story PG&E headquarters and set it on fire in order to determine if its fire sprinkler system will work. , It is true, as pointed out in Mr. Crowell's letter, that a 9-inch model test performed by the AEC to check out design computer codes gave disappointing results. As a result the AEC 'began a long, detailed investigation that proved the AEC's code was old. Newer and even more stringent codes have checked out on,every scale model test thus far. , Mr. Crowell also asked if defects have, been discovered during nuclear power plant construction and operation. He used a plant near Norfolk, Virginia as an example. Various abnormalities in plant construction and operation have been detected by the AEC. This very fact is proof positive that stringent quality control is being exercised. Finally, Mr. Crowell compares nuclear plant safety with the Apollo space program. The comparison is an obvious non- sequitur. The safety record of the commercial nuclear power industry speaks for itself. Not a single person has been threatened, injured or killed from radiation from any commercial nuclear power plant. Christopher C. Newton Nuclear Information Pacific Gas & Electric Alan H.
