Joan Cash filed suit in Superior Court this week asking that the tow company be stopped from holding her camper because she can not pay to get it out of storage. A hearing has been set on the case on July 11.

Cash's camper was towed as part of a general roundup of illegal campers by sheriff's officers along the North Coast. She claimed that when she went to retrieve the camper, she was presented with a towing bill. Because she could not pay the initial bill, the vehicle remained in storage. Each day the vehicle is in storage she must pay $6 more, the suit says. The suit asks that the tow company Pioneer Auto Service be stopped from detaining any vehicle towed at police request where the owner disputes the tow and there is no hearing process for retrieving the vehicle.

It also asks that the tow company be stopped from charging storage when the owner cannot pay a tow fee to retrieve it. Attorney for the suit is Gary Brayton of the Community AdvocatesLegal Aid Society. Donna N. Payne Died Wednesday (AP Laserphoto) 'Hogan's Heros' Robert Gary and Larry Hovts were pallbearers. Funeral Mass Conducted For Actor Bob Crane is and Robert Clary; Edward Feldman, who produced the series, and John Thompson, a friend.

The mourners included celebrities Carroll O'Connor, John Astin and Patty Duke Astin. Crane's body was found Thursday by actress Victoria Berry, who went to the apartment to look for him after he failed to keep a noon publicity engagement. Police said he had been struck fatal blows on the head with a blunt instrument, apparently while asleep. Police Lt. Ron Dean reported no new developments in the investigation Wednesday and said a search was continuing for the murder weapon, probably a tire iron.

Dean said detectives also were interviewing a number of persons to determine how and with whom the actor spent the last 12 hours of his life. A former disc jockey and drummer, Crane turned to acting in the 1950s and was a regular on "The Donna Reed Show" before starring in "Hogan's Heroes" on CBS from September 1965 to July 1971. He starred in another series, "The Bob Crane Show," on NBC in 1974-75. HOLLYWOOD (AP) Family members and about 200 friends attended a funeral mass for actor Bob Crane, bludgeoned fatally last Thursday in a Scottsdale, apartment where he was living while acting in a play at a local theater. Crane, 49, was buried Wednesday after the mass at St.

Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in Westwood, conducted by The Rev. Bernard Lohman of Clemson, S.C., a close friend of the actor. Burial was in Oakwood Memorial Park in Chatsworth. Crane, best known for his portrayal of the wily Col. Hogan in the popular television series "Hogan's Heroes," was appearing in "Beginner's Luck" at the Windmill Dinner Theater in Scottsdale at the time of his death.

His widow, Patricia, who acted with him in "Hogan's Heroes," was present at the mass along with their son, Robert Scott. Crane's first wife, Anne Terzian Crane, also attended along with their children, Robert David, who was one of the pallbearers, Deborah Ann and Karen Leslie. Other pallbearers included actor Eric Braeden; "Hogan's Heroes" costars Larry Hov It Was No Easy Task Transporting 'Big Mama' A 16-year-old youth is in critical condition today after plunging from a cliff near the East Cliff Drive railroad trestle Wednesday afternoon.

4261122 CALIFORNIA CREMATION SOCIETY For bee brochure on complete ervicei covered by Social Security and Veteran btnetih, coll write. Sit N. First San Jote SH Ph. 991-4066 By BILL NEUBAUER Sentinel Staff Writer The county Transportation Commission today agreed to give partial funding to both the Capitola and Santa Cruz bus shuttle services that will be offered free to passengers. Granted for Capitola was $4,200 to help provide the bus shuttle service from the Disco area to the Esplanade on weekends through Labor Day.

The city of Capitola is paying all other costs. Included with the grant is a stipulation that a ridership count be taken to aid in future analysis of bus users. For the Santa Cruz service, the commission agreed to provide $3,400 for payment of the county's share of the joint sponsorship of this service with the city. Previously the commission had agreed to fund half the city costs. Myron Jacobs, principal planner of transportation for the county, said the funding of the county's share is a direct result of passage of Proposition 13.

The funding had been requested specifically by County Administrative Officer Bob Neyman because of the impact of the revenue-cutting measure. The Santa Cruz shuttle runs daily through the Labor Day weekend from the county center through the downtown area to Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf. In another funding action, the commission granted $5,000 for a study that will include setting up a car-pooling system for county workers. "We will study the incentives and the dis-incentives of car-pooling," Jacobs told The Sentinel. "We hope then to use the data to set up a countywide car-pooling system a year or so from now." The commission approved $5,000 for that future study, as well.

The study for county workers should be completed this fiscal year, Jacobs indicated. Jacobs announced his resignation as principal planner for transportation, effective July 18, after six years with county Community Resources Agency. Jacobs will enter a consultant firm in Santa Cruz that deals with soils, foundation and geologic engineering. Crime Report Man Slashed With Knife On SC Mall An apparently unprovoked knife attack brought arrest for a 34-year-old Santa Cruz man Tuesday night, Santa Cruz Police reported today.

Police said Ragg approached an unsuspecting stroller identified as 29-year-old James Loken of Santa Cruz and suddenly pulled out a knife. Loken raised his arm to protect himself and Ragg slashed him across the fingers, said police. Loken received minor injuries. Ragg was arrested a short distance away.

Thieves broke into the De-laveaga School bakery, 1134 Morrissey and made off with 34 loaves of bread, Santa Cruz Police reported today. A burglar took out a mailbox frame, then reached through the hole to break into the Great American Weiner Works, Santa Cruz Police said. The thief made off with $13 in cash.

The recent project, related by officials at the nearby Lockheed-Georgia aircraft plant where the air freighter was manufactured, involved "Big Mama," a 16-year-old whale and one of only 22 killer whales in captivity. The whale, captured several years ago off British Columbia, was the star of the Hollywood movie, and had been on display at Marine World at Redwood City.

"Big Mama" was sold to a new enterprise in Japan, World Safari, the largest such wildlife park in the Orient. But because of the weight and the whale's length of 21.4 feet, transport became a problem. The animal's girth was too big for a DC-8. Also, the DC-8 couldn't meet the noise standards of the Osaka airport, which was about six hours by truck from the wildlife park. The key to the transfer was in getting the whale from pool to pool from San Francisco to Shiraham within 24 hours.

The trans-Pacific stretch was solved by transporting the whale to Tokyo on a Boeing 727. For the crucial final leg, the job went to a Hercules air freighter, which was large enough for the job and had the capability of landing on a short strip. Because of this, the Hercules was able to bypass Osaka and fly directly to Shirahama, despositing "Big Mama," who was renamed "Shirahama Mama." For the trip from California, the whale was rubbed down with zinc oxide and lanolin and was sprayed periodically with a water mist. She was placed on a special sling inside a cradle and foam was released inside the cradle to relieve the pressure on the whale. The entire cradle, with the whale, weighed 12,000 pounds.

AF Promotion Michael S. Ball, son of retired Air Force Lt. Col. and Mrs. Allan W.

Ball of Santa Cruz, has been promoted to staff sergeant in the U.S. Air Force. WASHINGTON (AP) One of the nation's largest home-builders agreed today to repair major construction defects in as many as 20,000 homes sold since 1972. The agreement came in a consent order signed by Kaufman and Broad Inc. of Los Man Who Helped Bomb Hiroshima Laid To Rest of the homes.

The company did not acknowledge any violation of law, but it agreed to make the repairs and not to use the practices complained about in building or selling future homes. As part of the agreement, the company will send owners of the covered homes letters telling them that they can submit claims for free repairs within 50 days from receipt of the letters. The company's sale of homes in 1976 totaled more than $283 million. The defects cbvered by the order are those to major structural elements of the home, such as the foundation, load bearing walls and roof structure. It does not cover minor items due to normal wear and tear or cracking due to normal settling.

The FTC complaint alleged that, contrary to claims made to buyers, all the houses were not built according to federal standards or good construction practices in the housing industry. Some of the homes had cracked foundations, improperly supported walls, foundation walls not covered with waterproofing and numerous other defects, the complaint charged. Other allegations included false representations to home buyers on taxes, schools, community facilities, closing costs and limited time price offers. The consent order applies to homes sold as a house and lot, including condominiums, but, not to homes built by the company on a purchaser's ow.n lot. Angeles, which has subsidiaries throughout the country.

The order was accepted unanimously by the. Federal Trade Commission, which had accused the company of misrepresenting to buyers that its homes were free from defects that could impair ordinary use years. "All I want is a break," he said. "There is no peace." "I can remember him waking up night after night," his brother, James Eatherly of Midland, said after the burial Wednesday. "He said his brain was on fire.

He said he could feel those people burning." Joe Eatherly of Van Alstyne said he thought his brother had suffered from nuclear radiation. "One of his navigators came down with radiation sickness. We didn't know what it was then. I doubt we really know what it is now," he said. A resident of Houston for the past 20 years, Claude Eatherly was stricken with cancer and lost his speech several years ago.

"I kind of felt for him because I went through 16 atomic bomb tests after the war," said Paul Guidry, a fellow VFW member and one of Eatherly's pallbearers. "Just watching a blast makes you feel insignificant like a cockroach on a dance floor." HOUSTON (AP) The man who spotted targets for the American plane that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima in August 1945 has been laid to rest after searching the last 33 years for some peace. Claude Robert Eatherly was a 24-year-old Army Air Corps pilot who picked out Hiroshima through a hole in the clouds that Aug. 6 and radioed the Enola Gay to bomb the city. He died Saturday from cancer in the Veterans Administration Hospital here.

The Distinguished Flying Cross winner did not witness the actual bombing of Hiroshima but later flew into a mushroom cloud during nuclear bomb tests on Bikini Atoll. He was discharged from the service in 1947 after numerous psychiatric tests indicated a "severe neurosis and guilt complex." Doctors said he told them he felt responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Japanese at Hiroshima. In 1960 after a series of small-time burglaries, the Van Alstyne native told reporters he had not had any sleyp in 15.
