Excepting Saturday fo) w o LL2) Wo McNamara In Brush With Death Paris P) A plan carrying U.S. Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara and members of his staff narrowly missed a collision with a civilian airliner in a fog at Paris' Orly Airport today. McNamara's U.S. Air Force pilot, Capt. Meredith Sutton, abandoned his attempt to take off for South Viet Nam and braked his big K135 jet transport when the passenger plane came in for a landing in front of him. The tires on the American plane blew out and the big trans port jolted to a halt about 500 feet from the end of the long runway. Assistant Defense Secretary Arthur G. Sylvester, who was aboard, said no one was hurt. Sylvster gave this account of the incident: "Visibility was very bad. The pilot could not see the end of the runway. We got a clearance from the tower to take off. Apparently the passenger plane got its signals mixed and tried to land. "We were rolling down the runway hearing the point of no return when Capt Sutton suddenly aborted the flight. His quick reaction saved our lives, I'm sure. Another moment and it would have been too late." There was no immediat explanation of the mixup from the civilian controlled airport tower. The defense secretary had attended the annual winter meeting of the NATO Ministerial Council, which ended Tuesday. He is going to Saigon for his second on-the-spot assessment in three months of the Vietnamese and American fight against the Communist Guerillas. McNamara and his staff planned to take another U.S. military plane.

President Johnson said today he is willing to meet with any world leaders obviously including Soviet Premier Niki-ta Khrushchev any time he believes such conferences would be "fruitful and productive." Johnson was asked at a news conference to discuss his attitude toward a possible early meeting with Khrushchev.

The property is the 7293-acre Marks family holdings in the mountains above the Aptos-Soque! area. Nelson yesterday said Santa Cruz county, the second smallest in size in California, next to San Francisco, is "subsidizing the state division of beaches and parks to the tune of $1 million in annual taxes." "We need more state . parks like I need a tail." He pointed out that figures compiled by County Assessor Harold Kane disclose that property owned by state beaches and parks eliminate $938,236 yearly from taxes (bat "local taxpayers must make up." The 7193 acres has an assessed valuation of $232,090, according to Kane, with a current average tax rate of $7.80 per $100 of assessed valuation. He said removal of the property from the tax rolls would knock off about $15,000 in taxes yearly. Kane added that approximately $1 million in new construction in the Aptos Elementary school district would be required to offset the tax loss. The state purchased the land from The Nature Conservancy, a nation-wide nonprofit organization that acted as a "holding agency until we could raise the money," Jess Chaffee, district superintendent of beaches and parks in Monterey, told The Sentinel today. He said the state paid off a mortgage of SKiO.OIIO, including $10,000 interest,, on the property. Herman, Andrew and Agnes Marks, who live near Salinas, turned the land over to the conservatory until the state could raise money to pay the debts on the property. The 19fil state legislature appropriated about $500,-000 to buy the land as "opportunity buying." The state park commission approved the area lor use as a public park in July, 1902. Supervisor Nelson said he be Six Puppies Find A Foster fore their foster mother, a I.aborador Retriever owned by Wayne Hays of 744 River street, took over. Don's father, Les Waggoner of 2119 Ocean street, said the story about the puppies' plight brought numerous calls Fights lieves the "state is being hooked" in the deal. "The Marks family is retaining the things they acquired the property for in the first place," the board chairman said. "They're retaining oil and mineral rights, which pretty assuredly ts why they bought it, and are telling the state how to develop the land." He said the state is paying almost the same price for the land that the Marks originally paid for itby paying off the $460,000 mortgage but the family still has oil and mineral rights. Chaffee, however, said the Marks family has not retained oil and mineral rights to the 7193 acres. But the Markses do plan to conduct oil exploration in the remaining 2527 acres in Hinckley basin. That part of the property is not included in the request for the land to bo removed from the tax rolls, Chaffee said. The state official said negotiations are under way for acquiring the Hinckley basin area and details should be available after the first of the year. Nelson said he will bring the "facts," as he sees them, before fellow supervisors. "I'm not enough of a lawyer to know if we could make it stick and I haven't discussed this with the county counsel's office yet to see what our stand might be," he added.

Hearing Held On Osmer7s Application The slate today held on open hearing to delve into the reputation of former Watsonville Police Chief Frank Osmer for "truth, honesty and integrity," although Osmer's attorney had asked the matter be dropped. The hearing war, called by the state on Osmer's request that he be allowed to take an examination for a license as a private detective and register as an employe of a licensed private investigator. Deputy Attorney General Eldon Johnson said Osmer's attorney, James Maclnnis of San Francisco asked yesterday to withdraw the request. The hearing was held with neitner Osmer nor Maclnnis present. Harold Furst of the office of administrative procedure, San Francisco, heard the brief testimony this morning, which was handled by Johnson. All witnesses were asked only for an opinion on Osmer's truth, honesty and integrity. The first witness, Louis Gluhan, former Watsonville alderman and mayor, said he felt Osmer's reputation was "questionable;" District Attorney Richard Pease tirmcd it "very poor;" and Ole Thomson, chief investicator for the district attorney, said it was "questionable." Josph Webber, senior special investigator for the state department of vocational and professional standards, said Osmer's reputation, other than a few instances was "not good" based on interviews with over 30 persons. Furst received as evidence many documents including Osmer's indictment by the grand jury and subsequent conviction on a charge of illegally conspiring to sell liquor. It included Osmer's placement on three years probation and order of $1000 reimbursement to the county as well as a later court denial that probation be terminated and his record be e x-punged. Johnson said: "By having the hearing, we can establish our allegations." Furst said a transcript of today's hearing, along with the documents introduced and his recommendations, will now go to Sacramento for a final decision. i i i - -., V ' : 7 - r . ... . in. jt .pQ CTi S f3 f2 TP C9 n "a on i
