The Republican Assembly has been endorsing since 1934 and the Democratic club organization adopted the process in 1954. Both men have received endorsements themselves from their parties’ volunteer organizations. I A total of 25.000 members of the AFL-CIO Communica- jtions Workers of America is involved in the dispute with the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. A strike hy the union, au- j thorized to begin at any time union officials give the word, would cripple long distance service across the nation as well as service to foreign countries and ships at sea Local service would not be affected. The union, representing long lines workers in 42 states, including California, and the District of Columbia, wants higher pay and management abandonment of demands for a no-strike clause, discontinuance of voluntary union dues check-off and longer hours for administrative workers in 24 communities. John Ryan. Mill Valley ham radio operator, is spending until midnight tomorrow alone in his radio truck on the summit of Mt. Tamalpais while taking part in the VHF j (very high frequency) contest of the American Radio j Relay League, He'll be alone, but not i lonely, in his 34-hour vigil. Purpose of the VHF contest is to gather as many contacts as possible with other radio operators stationed, presumably, on other mountaintops. Ryan said information collected from the contest at ARRL headquarters in Hartford, Conn., would ultimately be turned over to civil defense authorities. Very high frequencies, those above 30 megacycles, are comparable to television and FM bands.

Revival Time II P.M. : KFRC-News Wheel KCBS—Integration :30, Question Time KGO—Melody Lane Financing For Homes Gets Tough CHICAGO HF — American home buyers expecting another boom of “no money down” financing probably have a long wait, according to the president of the United States Savings and Ixian League. Roy M. Marr said that until the past two years, many of the homes builf since the close of World War II were sold with no down payments or with fractional down payments. “But it is highly unlikely that we will see much of this type of home financing for some ! time to come,” Marr said. He urged that various segments of the housing industry assume the responsibility of informing the American public that the unusually easy home financing prevalent in the decade after World War II v.as “the exception, not the rule.” When credit is easy, he said, houses are sold more readily and not enough attention is given to keeping building costs in line. The higher costs are usually added to the mortgage balance. But the ultimate effect of somewhat tighter credit in times of prosperity, is to produce better values for the home buyer, Marr said, and give him more for his money. Cities Called Upon For Financing Of Public Facilities CHICAGO (IF — The United States Savings and Loan League has called on local municipalities to finance the construction of public facilities through long-term bond issues rather than by extracting “special concessions” from home builders. The ieague, in a resolution passed at its 65th annual convention here, charged that such special concessions placed “unreasonable demands” on home builders, and in turn, on a relatively few home buyers. “These demands,” said the resolution, “have the immediate effect of increasing housing costs and prices, and thus retarding home building and buying.” It stressed that public facilities such as parks and schools usually are open to the community at large, and thus should be financed by the entire community. Planners Approve Three Variances Three variances were approved last night by the Sausalito Planning Commission in a special meeting at the city hall. Chairman Victor E. Hecht said today. The applications for “simple" variances by Mr. and Mrs. Sol Silver on Sausalito boulevard. Mr. and Mrs. E. Nash on Wolfback ridge, and Views Unlimited will be recommended favorably to the city council, he said. Firemen Elect At Homestead Ernest Roberts, veteran secretary of the Homestead Valley Firemen's Club, was advanced to chairman for 1958, replacing Fred Foss, in an elect i 0 n Thursday at the Homestead firehouse. New secretary will be David Henriod, son of Mel Henriod, treasurer of the Homestead Board of Fire Commissioners. Justin (Bob) Garris was reelected treasurer. Chester Kirby continues as chief of the department (Continued from page 1) more than 30 schools affiliated with it in an area extending from California to Oklahoma. The Allied Schools gives its own white, green, brown and black belt ratings. But it emphasizes judo for self defense instead of for competition. And Esposti, now 30, back on active duty with the Marines as a recruiting sergeant, has 60 boys starting at eight years old enrolled in his own Marin School of Self Defense, which occupies the whole lower floor of his home at 1001 Magnolia avenue, Larkspur. ALL ELEMENTALS Esposti teaches his pint-sized pupils all the elements of judo: Karrate (Japanese boxing, in which one strikes with the side of the hand); nage (throwing holds 1 ; gvaku (holds with which ! to render an opponent helpless after he is thrown). After his pupils have about six months training, he teaches them the dangerous strangle holds, which can be fatal. Isn’t it inviting trouble to teach such youngsters such lethal self defense? Won’t it make bullie§ of them? Quite the contrary, insists Esposti, who says he has only had to use his own judo training once in his life so far (“It was adequate,” he adds drily.) DOESN’T MAKE BILLIES “Judo training doesn’t make bullies,” he insists.“These boys don’t need to go throwing other kids around to prove what they can do. You prove yourself on the mat every day when practicing.” Further, he declares, “ a bully won’t stick with judo.” The one who does stick with the training, and who profits by it, according to the Larkspur teacher, is the boy who “has an underlying inferiority complex, the one who isn’t sure of himself.” These boys acquire self-confidence from the training, he insists. They never need be afraid any more that they cannot protect themselves. And their self-confidence is sufficient that they need not push anyone around to prove themselves. FAIR RESULTS Judo training for children, says Esposti, produces four beneficial results: First, it teaches them the art of failing so they will not get injured in tumbles; second, it gives them self-conifdence; third, it builds health through exercise; fourth, as they progress in the study, they learn leadership and responsibility. After training, a 70-pound boy can toss Esposti himself, who weighs 175 pounds,1 over his hip in the approved judo throw. Esposti has taught judo to more than 600 Marin boys since he started the school. And only twice, he says, has he had to call down any of his pupils for using their knowledge of judo to start a fight. JUDO SUPERIOR? As to the old question of whether judo is superior to boxing or catch-as-catch-can wrestling as a means of self- defense, Esposti refuses to go out on a limb for his favorite, But he says: “Judo does more than any other method to equalize weight between opponents.” And he tells of a junior college student—17 years old, 200 pounds but lacking in knowledge of self-defense and afraid of combat—who came to him recently for training. The youth was afraid of a rival. The youth attended one lecture. He was to return for private lessons—being a bit too large for classes with boys of 8 to 14. But instead, he showed up next day to say his problem was solved. What he learned at the lecture had been sufficient. He had subdued his rival without striking a blow. His self confidence was immense. obituaries Cartoonist Harry Peter Dies In N.Y. Harry G. Peter, San Rafacl- born cartoonist who drew “Wonder Woman,” died of a heart attack Thursday in Staten Island, N.Y., it was reported today by Kenneth Irwin of San Rafael. Irwin is the husband of Peter's niece Marie Peter Irwin. Peter, 77, had drawn “Wonder Woman” for 10 years, Irwin said. His parents were the late Louis and Louise Peter, who arrived in San Rafael in 1875 and later built the Peter Building at Fourth and C streets. He is survived by a sister, Marie F. Peter, who lives with the Irwins in the'Peter Building. Peter worked as an illustrator for the old San Francisco Call, Irwin said, before moving to New York as a free-lance commercial artist in 1910. Funeral services will be held Tuesday in Staten Island. Handicapped Care, Training Can Be Exempt From Tax WASHINGTON U0 —A ruling that special training and care for the mentally and physical ly handicapped are deductible as a medical expense on income tax returns was formalized yesterday by the Internal Revenue Service. The 1RS bulletin said the deductible costs may include board and lodging in an institution other than a hospital if the person is there because medical care or special schooling is available. “For example, medical care includes the entire cost of institutional care for a person who is mentally ill and unsafe when left alone,” the bulletin said. William Edwards Dies In Home William D. Edwards, 50, died last night of a heart condition at his home at 117 North San Pedro road, Santa Venetia. A gas meter repairman for the Pacific Gas and Electric Co. and a 12-year employee of the San Rafael office, Edwards is survived by his wife, Theressa. who has been employed as a clerk at the San Rafael PG&E office. Funeral services and burial will be at Lancaster, Ohio, where Edwards was born and reared. He is also survived by his parents. Melvin and Amelia Edwards, two sisters and three brothers, all of Lancaster. Edwards had been ill about two weeks before his death. He suffered a heart attack Christmas week. The Harry M. Williams Mortuary. San Rafael, is handling local arrangements. SEWERS (Continued from page 1) main facilities at Francisco boulevard. San Pedro road. West Railroad avenue, and Simms street will be adequate to meet ultimate needs, if they are provided with added equipment. 2.—The pumping plant and force main system at Glenwood are inadequate to serve ultimate needs. They must be enlarged to connect with the present treatment plant or a new plant built in the area. 3.—In general, the physical condition of existing pumping and treatment facilities is satisfactory, except at the Irwin street and McPhail pumping plants, which need rehabilitation. and the Bret Harte pumping plant, which should be replaced. McMAHAN (Continued from page one) heart condition. McMahan was known throughout the state and nation because of his efforts to publicize Santa Venetia, a dream development of homes along a system of canals. He was honored by his profession, serving as president of the California State Realty Federation, forerunner of the present California Real Estate Assn. His ambitious Santa Venetia project—visualized as a Venice of the modern world was more than a dream. Contracts were let in 1914 for $21o.000 worth of work and construction began on some six miles of canals. There were a few eager purchasers of lots as the canal system grew in the next two years, but sales did not meet McMahan’s expectations. He needed further financial backing, and when he could not get it for Santa Venetia, its three buildings from the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition were left standing alone. Its canals, crumbling to ruin in succeeding years, still serve small boat owners of subsequent subdivisions. For the past 18 years, McMahan has lived at the Winton Hotel in San Francisco, until hospitalized two weeks ago. He was born 111 Knoxville, Tenn. Funeral arrangements are pending at Frank J. Keaton Mortuary in San Rafael, which was advised of the pioneer’s death this morning by his son. McMahan's death followed by two weeks the conclusion of a series of articles on his Santa Venetia project in the Independent-Journal’s Marin Magazine. Montgomery Ward Talks Stalled WASHINGTON W—Federal mediators reported “still no agreement” today between union and management representatives in talks seeking to avert a strike of Montgomery Ward clerks called for Monday. Officials of the Retail Clerks International Assn. said if no settlement is reached they plan to go ahead with a strike in certain key Ward stores Monday. They said all tcld about 4,500 to 5.000 clerks are involved in 61 stores in 53 cities. Research ships from the United States, Canada and Japan are now seeking fishing grounds in the Pacific Ocean for salmon. DEATHS HONG 1 Wee Yem) — In Mill Valley.
