32 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Thurs., April 3, 1969 Southern Arizona What they'll find is major question when copper drill tests Tucson street By BOB THOMAS Southern Arizona Bureau TUCSON — As an attraction for Tucson Copper Days—a salute to the area's big copper mines—a drilling rig used to bore holes in rock in preparation for blasting will drill into a city street. However, there will be no follow-up blasts. Backers of the event, set up by the Arizona Mining Association and the Tucson Retail Trade Bureau, confess they don't know what the drillers will strike when they drill into West Congress Street near Stone Avenue. It could be most anything. West Congress has been dug up so many times for sewer, water, gas and telephone line installations that it's anybody's guess where the lines are buried. The holes made by Copper Days drillers witt be cemented up afterwards. Goper Days always draws intense spectator interest when the mines exhibit their huge trucks, shovels and other equipment. One year, more as a gag than anything else, a mine car-load of partially crushed copper-bearing rock was shown and the public was invited to take a few samples home. They did—so much that the rock supply had to be replenished. Copper Days are April 14-19. The Gentle Dig—newsletter of the University of Arizona chapter of the American Association of University Professors recently published the following: "In a recent memorandum sent to all staff and graduate students, the (UofA) department of microbiology reiterated its longstanding ban on wearing beards, based on the fact that beards have been demonstrated to present an infectious hazard to persons who work in the laboratory. "A survey by the AAUP staff bacteriologist shows the following eminent microbiologists (with age at death in parenthesis) all wore beards: Von Behring (63), Ehrlich (61), Koch (67), Pasteur (73) and Petten- kofer (83). None were graduates of the University of Arizona." Signs of the times—the roof of Keen School, near the end of the Davis-Monthan AFB runway, will be painted "international orange," said School District 1 officials, so pilots can better see the school from the air. Many parents have voiced fears that an Air Force plane could crash into the school since a Phantom jet hit a nearby supermarket in 1967. City Councilman Rudy Castro has been named Cholla High School's new baseball coach. He ought to be pretty good, City Hall sources report, with all the pitches, curve balls, strikeouts and sliders he's seen at council meetings. Retiree served U.S. 46 years DOUGLAS — John Darling has retired after 46 years of government service. A native of Safford, he attended Douglas High School before enlisting in the Navy. In 1926, he joined the Border Patrol and, in El Paso during prohibition days, participated in many gun battles with rum runners and saw two of his fellow workers shot down. In 1942, he transferred to the administrative branch of the Immigration Service and was stationed at the port of entry between Douglas and Agua Prieta since that time. •He was presented a service cerificate by Robert Jarrett of Phoenix, state director of immigration, at a recent retirement party. Gifts from co-workers included tools to . continue his hobby of woodworking. UA launches 'Indian programs' TUCSON - The first "In- the UofA agricultural exten- dian Programs," a^ quarterly sion service, said the universi- newsletter describing University of Arizona involvement \vith Indian communities In Arizona, has been issued. Featured in the newsletters will be programs concerned with the development of human and natural resources in Indian communities. Dr. George Hull, director of ty has 18 employes in nine Indian communities under a contract arrangement with the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Ax ford's book in 2nd edition TOMBSTONE - A book written by Mack Axford, who started working as a cowboy at the age of 14 after his arrival from Michigan, has gone into its second edition. He was presented with the first copy of the new edition this week by Arizona Press Director Marshall Townsend. The book, ''Around Western Campfires," has been slightly revised in its second printing. Axford said he began work on a Tombstone ranch for $10 per month, plus room and board. He also worked in mines along the Mexican border, guarded prisoners in the Cochise County jail when it was still located here.and later became superintendent of a large cattle company. At the age of 79, he's still active and recently, as parade marshal, he led the Tombstone Helldorado parade on a spirited horse.
