the necktie of an official at the office of the Independent Commission Against Corruption today following a massive march - By RICHARD RODDA Special To The Bee RICHMOND — Little by little the passenger train is making a comeback in California It was helped along today by the dedication of the new Amtrak-BART station here Gov Brown and officials of Amtrak and BART participated in the event marking the opening of a facility linking main line Amtrak trains with rapid transit lines serving Alameda Contra Costa and San Francisco counties Later in the day two additional services for rail passengers were to be dedicated In Stockton brief ceremonies were planned for the inauguration of a new bus service providing a connection to Amtrak's "San Joaquin" for Sacramento and Lodi passengers The final event is the dedication of a station in Madera which will be served by the San Joaquin on a daily basis starting Sunday The state Department of Transportation (Caltrans) played a major role in funding the new services Federal funding through Amtrak on a matching basis also was provided The Richmond station is expected to be a busy place for the arrivals and departures of six daily trains It offers a convenient connection for BART trains serving Berkeley Oakland San Leandro Hayward Fremont San Francisco and Daly City Amtrak officials predict its trains will benefit from this service Trains using the station are: southbotmd Coast Starlight 7:14 am to San Jose Santa Barbara and Los Smashing Man's Cigarettes Brings Woman A Smashed Nose $8000 MINNEAPOLIS (UPI) — Mrs Ann Houk kicked a cigarette out of a smoker's hand on a bus and got a broken nose and $8000 in return Mrs Houk 59 said a man was standing with a lighted cigarette in his hand at about the height of his knee Mrs Houk raised her foot and "smashed the cigarette out of his hand" she said She said she was then struck on the nose A doctor testified the resulting injury will interfere with her breathing Awe - IgIA34Agii

Southern Pacific All Amtrak trains in California are operated on SP and Santa Fe tracks The new bus connecting with the southbound San Joaquin will leave the Amtrak station in Sacramento at 10 lam returning at 5:15 pm after a layover in Stockton for the northbound San Joaquin The San Joaquin serves Stockton Riverbank (east of Modesto) Merced Madera Fresno Hanford Wasco and Bakersfield The San Joaquin is one of the newer Amtrak trains It carries all new cars and continues to show modest growth In ridership according to Amtrak For the first five months of 1977 the train carried 40015 revenue passengers as compared with 26556 in the same period of 1976 Since Amtrak took over the passenger trains from the railroads in 1971 it has expanded service by in and can be corrected only by surgery A district court jury awarded $8000 to Mrs Houk Wednesday saying the defendant the Metropolitan Transit Commission was responsible because the bus driver did not intervene to prevent injury to her Mrs Houk told the jury she and other passengers asked the man to put out his cigarette but he responded by yelling obscenities and spat at two women passengers by the police to protest what they describe as the commission's harassment tactics in investigating graft in the police department Train Comeback Amtrak-Bart Station Opens creasing the frequency of the Zephyr from three times a week to daily

International Fund for Agricultural Development will begin financing projects to increase food production in the developing countries before the end of the year the chairman of the !FAD preparatory commission' announced Thursday THESACRAMENTO BEE By JOHN BERTHELSEN Bee Staff Writer Dr Josette Escamilla-Mondanaro dismissed Tuesday as one of the top women officials in the Department of Health consistently received outstanding performance ratings virtually until the day she was fired For instance on June 26 Dr Mondanaro was rated outstanding in nine out of nine categories on her job performance by Chief Deputy Director Raymond K Procunier "This is a rare rating from me but you deserve it in every respect" Procunier wrote on her performance report for probationary employees "It is a pleasure working with you" Under that comment State Health Director Jerome Lackner wrote: "I wholeheartedly concur" Dr Mondanaro was fired Tuesday from her position as deputy director for the division of substance abuse for writing an angry and obscene letter to Dr Judianne Densen-Gerber of the Odyssey Institute of New York on June 24 She was terminated one day before her one-year probationary period as a civil service employee was up The letter was taken from Dr Mondanaro's files months ago At that time it was shown to The Bee but no story was written because the letter even though it was on state stationery was deemed a personal communication between the two women It is unknown how long it was in the hands of health and welfare agency officials before it eventually was shown to Gov Brown last week However the letter became a factor in the developing power struggle between health department officials and those of the health and welfare agency which oversees the department Agency Secretary Mario Obledo says he had no part in Dr Mondanaro's firing He says he was almost unaware that there was a feud going on between Dr Mondanaro and Henry Collins an Ob ledo ally whom Dr Mondanaro blocked from working in her department But other sources say Obledo was angered at the woman who as head of the substance abuse department oversees most of California's drug rehabilitation and abuse programs It is believed to be the hole card played by agency officials in their attempt to oust Dr Mondanaro Dr Lackner and Procunier are We shop the world over for the newest

SAIIIROA known to have asked that she be kept on in her position because they thought highly of her work Neither of the two men will comment on the situation Proctmier said he does not comment on personnel matters and Dr Lackner issued a terse statement the day she was fired saying he highly valued her work Eventually the situation was taken to Gov Brown who was appalled by the tone of the letter and is also said to have been worried that her lifestyle would adversely affect his own political situation Dr Mondanaro is a lesbian and Brown reportedly was worried that it could become an issue for anti-homosexual crusader Anita Bryant and Republican Sen John Briggs who has announced his intention to run against Brown in 1978 Brown denies her lifestyle had anything to do with the situation Friday October 28 1977 Page A3 r Mondanaro Fired Health Official Highly Rated Nonetheless he went along with the decision and ordered her fired The firing brings into focus another developing power struggle between Obledo and Lackner A Brown-backed proposal for a massive reorganization of the health department creates an entirely new department of alcoholism and drug abuse with far more employees and more power Dr Mondanaro as head of the old substance abuse division could logically have been expected to be appointed the new department director However there is wide speculation that Obledo is interested in seeing Dr Xavier Mena a former US Labor Department official on loan to Obledo's agency for the past year as the department director The firing of Dr Mondanaro is seen as clearing the way for Dr Mena to be appointed Hotel Groundbreaking In traditional groundbreaking ceremonies Thursday for the 14-story Capitol Plaza Holiday Inn Hotel to be constructed north
