Washington Joins Appeal In Bakke Case SEATTLE (AP) - Washington state and the University of Washington have joined in the appeal of a case to the U.S. Supreme Court involving the University of California's special medical-admissions program for minorities. The state and the university have submitted a friend-of-the-court brief in support of the program. The California university is appealing the case of Allan Bakke, a white student who was twice denied entry to the U.C. at Davis Medical School. Bakke filed suit contending certain seats in the entering class were reserved for minorities and that some students admitted were less qualified than he.

By DENISE SIEBENTHAL Sentinel Staff Writer By the 1978-79 school year, the Scotts Valley Union School District may be operating year-round schools. A proposal for year-round schools where children would attend class for 18 weeks, be off for a 8-7 week vacation and then return for another 18 weeks was presented to trustees by a committee of parents, teachers and administrators Thursday night. The board seemed interested in the proposed program, known as Concept 6, but moved to analyze alternatives to overcrowding meeting and to educate the public on year-round schools before making any decisions. The Year-Round School Study Committee has worked for nearly a year, studying all forms of year-round schools. Committee Chairman Jean Dunn explained that under this program, children in each grade would be separated into three tracks. While two tracks are in school, the other track would be on vacation. rn cdy cdy cdy .03 clr clr clr .24 cdy .29 rn .01 rn cdy clr clr clr cdy clr clr clr .03 cdy cdy clr .12 cdy clr rn cdy cdy cdy clr cdy clr .03 cdy clr cdy cdy clr .04 rn cdy cdy clr .71 rn clr clr clr rn clr .37 clr rn clr .06 clr .02 clr cdy clr rn cdy cdy clr clr .13 cdy JUNE 1977 LOW HIGH 11 02:11 0.7 08:12 3.4 13:20 1.8 1:51 5.3 12 02:56 0.3 09:13 3.5 14:07 2.1 20:29 5.3 13 03:35 0.1 10 06 3.7 14:49 2.4 21:05 5.3 14 04:13 -0 3 10:51 3 8 15:28 2 6 21:39 5 3 15 04:48 -0.5 11:33 3.9 16:06 2.7 22:11 5.2 16 05:21 -0.6 12:14 4.0 16:45 2 8 22:43 5.2 .17 05:55 -0.6 12:53 4 0 17:23 2.9 23:15 5.1 IB 06:27 -0.6 13:29 4.1 18:03 2.9 23:49 4.9 19 07:01 -0.5 14:08 4.1 18:49 2.9 - HIGH LOW 20 00:25 4.7 07:41 -0.4 14:46 4.2 19:45 2.9 21 01:08 4.4 08:18 0.1 15:22 4.4 20:45 2.7 22 02 02 4.1 09:00 0 2 16:01 4.6 21:51 2.4 23 03:04 3.7 09:45 0 5 16:41 4 8 23:?? 1.9 24 04:21 3.4 10:38 0.9 17:22 5.1 - LOW HIGH 25 00:09 1.3 05:54 3.3 11:30 1.4 18:08 5.3 26 01:11 0.6 07:20 3.3 12:29 1.7 18:54 5.7 27 02:06 -0.1 08:34 3.6 13:24 2.1 19:43 5 9 28 02:59 -0.8 09:38 3.9 14:23 2.3 20:34 6.2 29 03:50 -1.3 10:35 4.2 15:17 2.4 21:24 6.3 30 04:39 -.6 11:25 4.4 16:11 2.4 22:15 6.3 86 64 cdy 75 59 cdy 62 58 cdy 64 53 cdy 79 60 cdy 68 54 cdy 95 66 clr Santa Cnu Srntincl Established 1856 Published Sunday morning and every afternoon except Saturday and certain holidays by Santa Crui Sentinel Publisher.

This would solve the overcrowding problem, now experienced mainly at Vine Hill School, because only two-thirds of the school population would be In school at one time. One advantage of this concept is that parents can choose between summerwinter vacations or springfall vacations for their children, Dunn said. That way, if parents and high school-aged children have a summer vacation, the younger children can have vacation at the same time, she explained. Another advantage listed in the committee report is that if families have more than one child In school, children can be placed on different tracks so that the child at home gets more individual time. Dunn also explained that when children return after vacation, they return to the same classmates and teacher, all who have been on vacation at the same time. A slight disadvantage, especially for the teacher, is that the class must return to a different classroom after each break. Committee Member Kathy Cook explained this scheduling dilemma. "You're using three classes In two rooms and that's how you're getting Increase in space. When you have one track out, when there vacation is over, they must come into one of those rooms. The one they used before Is now being used by the track that came in during their break." This moving aspect may be one reason why the majority of teachers so far are not supportive of Concept 8. In two separate polls, one taken by the committee and one taken by the teachers, teachers expressed disfavor with the program and stated overwhelmingly that they preferred the present two semester plan. Teacher Chris Nicholson, who served on the committee, told the board, "There is a strong feeling among teachers against it when you compare it to the current system. There would be more teachers for it if they had to choose between it and double sessions." She emphasized, and the board agreed, that teachers, parents and staff must be thoroughly educated on the plan before anyone makes a conclusion. . "Get the teachers and parents involved now so when it comes down to a decision, we won't have to take a vote where because the word scares them, people vote no," Trustee Doug Factor advised. The committee also pushed for the board to get started before a. crisis situation exists. In order to implement year-round schools by September, 1978, the board must publish its intent to have such a program by Nov. 1. If 25 per cent of the electorate presents a petition by Dec. 10 in opposiiton to the proposal, the district must hold an election on the matter. Trustees can call for a vote even without a citizen petition. The law also requires that the board must hold public hearings with employes, parents and representatives from the community before implementing year-round schools. SV School Budget Cuts Recommended Trustees of the Scotts Valley School District Thursday night began to recommend cuts in the proposed 1977-78 budget to provide money for employe salary increases. The board has until June 30 to approve the $2,283,489 tentative budget. "If the budget is balanced and we have a one per cent contingency (reserve of 823,292), the job now is to make cuts because we're looking for ways to pay teachers and other personnel," Trustee J.D. Baker stated. Board member Doug Factor came out strongest for cuts, recommending the removal of "fringes" to provide about $110,000 toward salary increases. This amount would allow for about a six per cent raise to district employes. Trustee Paul Jordan supported a six per cent salary increase, but board members Marj Bourret and Eddie Payne cautioned that the board should wait and see how much the state will provide the district after the legislature decides on a new school financing bill. Payne didn't believe the increases would amount to 8110,000. As Factor proposed slashes in the budget, he proposed that busing be cut out completely because it did nothing for education. This would save about $63,000, he pointed out. Busing was one of the first things to be cut in last year's budget session with buses being moved from outside a one-mile limit of schools to outside a three-mile limit. Baker disagreed, pointing out that busing is expensive, but the district is very rural and the ultimate results of cutting busing would be a drop in attendance, people coming in late and ultimately someone hurt on the highway. Payne interjected that he would support cutting many other things before cutting busing anymore from where it is now. Jordan suggested cutting busing back to outside a four mile radius of the schools. Factor further recommended cutting out library personnel to save about $29,000 in salaries; cutting out the already scaled-down music program for a $26,000 savings; hiring a lower salaried account clerk for the district office and putting the assistant principal at the junior high back into the classroom. These recommendations did not go unchallenged by the public. Former board member Jim Relph queried Factor on why he was suggesting cutting the music program and not the ELE program for gifted children. Relph answered that music is predicted to cost $27,084 next year, while the ELE program only costs the district $14,170. He added that children can get music lessons elsewhere, but ELE can only be offered in the schools. Jordan wasn't as detailed as Factor in recommending cuts, but did say his priorities in cuts would be transportation, overlapping positions in the district office, and a cutback in the negotiator's cost during contract hearings. He added that he would support cutting ELE before cutting into music and library personnel. The board will return to the subject of budget cuts at its next meeting. In the meantime, it addressed the following questions to Superintendent Don Slezak to answer: How would cuts in the summer school budget affect the program? What would the district save by cutting busing back to outside a four-mile radius of the schools? What can be cut from the administration's budget? Could one bus be retained to serve children on the outer limits of the district? Is it possible to operate ELE on state funds only, without contributing any money from the district? Is it feasible to reallocate space in the schools instead of buying another portable if overcrowding continues?

Bank To Open In Watsonville For the first time, County Bank of Santa Cruz is planning to open a Watsonville office. The State Banking Department has approved the location of a new County Bank branch "in the vicenity of Main and Beach Streets" in Watsonville. The Lettunich building with the site of the old Bank of America office has been selected. The branch is expected to open in October, County Bank senior vice president Bill Lynch said today. "We don't plan to modernize the office," Lnch said, "but to keep it in an older style." It will be the sixth bank in Watsonville, along with Bank of America, Wells Fa"rgo, Valley National Bank of Salinas, and Crocker National. Lynch said the new bank branch was sought "to expand our market base, of course. This will provide us with a keystone office in Watsonville, right on the town square." Tiny Tim Not Among Missing ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -Tiny Tim admits he did "tiptoe out of Honolulu fast" but says he wasn't missing just trying to allow privacy for some hon-eymooners. The singer, known for his falsetto rendition of "Tiptoe Through the Tulips," apparently was relaxing in Orlando today. He was reported to be studying a movie script and preparing for a night club appearance in nearby Sanford. Ohta Daughter Commits Suicide The oldest surviving daughter of the Dr. Victor Ohta family and friend slaying almost seven years ago has committed suicide. A quiet ceremony last week in Santa Cruz marked the death of 25-year-old Taura (Ohta) Whalen who committed suicide at her Coventry, R.I., home in a "continuing depression" over the murder of her parents and two younger brothers, and Ohta's secretary. The Otha family was found shot to death and dumped in their family swimming pool Oct. 19, 1970. Only Taura, then 18, and her younger sister Lark, then 14, survived the slaying. Four days after the killings, John Linley Frazier, 24, was arrested in a makeshift cabin near the Ohta home. He was found guilty of the murders and sentenced to the gas chamber by Superior Court Judge Charles Franich. Frazier escaped the death penalty when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the penalty as cruel and unusual punishment. Taura, who studied for a career in fashion design, had been in and out of mental institutions for the past seven years in an attempt to cope with a severe depression over the death of her family, according to reports. A few months after the murders, she married her high school sweetheart, but was divorced about two years later. She was married a second time to UC Santa Barbara student Stephen Whalen and went to his New England home to live. About two years ago, she gave birth to her daughter, Tyese. According to reports, she took some pills and attempted to asphyxiate herself with carbon monoxide gas in her garage. She was discovered unconscious by her mother-in-law and rushed to the hospital. She died the following day, May 27. Her death came just before her sister, Lark, graduated from Stanford University. Rites were conducted at Holy Cross Church. She was buried in the Holy Cross Cemetery beside the rest of her family.
