THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC cm Thursday, April 3, 1969 iP j» agc 45 Socialite, 59, A-blast diamonds hard to iind found guilty of homicide Republic Photo Humane Society's Jack Waid gives water to abandoned pet shop's healthiest survivor. Seven other dogs died Ghana gets Dogs found dead, dying in pet shop new leader ACCRA, Ghana (AP) Power shifted yesterday between two men who toppled President Kwame Nkrumah in 1966. Lt. Gen. Joseph A. Ankrah resigned the chairmanship of the ruling National Liberation Council and was succeeded by its youngest member, Brig. Akwasi Afrifa. In Washington, Ghana's embassy said Ankrah quit after allegations about his involvement in fund-raising activities for political purposes. Informed diplomats in London expressed belief the unanimous election of Afrifa by the council ensures continuation of Ghana's present pro-Western policies. :, Ankrah, Afrifa and Col. Emmanueal Kotoka led the uprising that removed Nkrumah from power while the ' president was visiting Red China. The smell of death drifted heavily yesterday from Robin's Canine Beauty Salon East, a pet shop on 2115 E. Indian School. A sign reading "Closed" hung on the front door. Neighbors said no one had been seen at the shop for several days. In small, filthy pens in a plywood shed at the rear and in outdoor pens were 21 dogs, five of them dead and two ;'more dying. In each cage was an empty water dish, some of them bearing claw marks as though thirsty animals had tried to dig through the unyielding metal or plastic to find water. One horror was the discovery of the bodies of a mother dog and her pups. The dog ;had appsu-ejitly tried to sur- %ve bjr : 'eitfag onV of her pups, but she died of thirst. ^Tpiscoyery of the^abandoned JanimalS: was made by a prospective renter of the shop, who summoned help from the Arizona Humane Society of Phoenix. Employes of the society gave each living animal water ("We can't give them too much all at once, not in their condition," said one) and then carried the living and the dead dogs to three waiting animal ambulances. Before the ambulances completed the trip to the society's shelter at 9235 N. 14th Ave., two more had died. "As soon as we got them here," said Max Finch, general manager of the society, "we gave them their puppy shots and put them on a special diet. It looks as though the 14 who arrived here alive are going to make it." The store was a companion operation to Robin's Canine, Beauty Salon West at 2515 Wr Bethany Home. Both have been operated by Robin Roberts, also known as Virginia or Ginger Roberts, 35, whose last known address was on W. Holly. An attempt to reach Miss Roberts by -telephone last night was unsuccessful. The telephones at the two stores, an alternate number listed for one store and the telephone at the W. Holly address were out of service. Associated Press ACAPULCO, Mexico — Sofia Celorio de Bassi, wealthy socialite artist, was convicted yesterday of the fatal shooting of her Italian nobleman son-in-law and was sentenced to 11 years in prison. Mrs. Bassi, 59, maintained her shooting of Count Cesare d'Acquarone of Verona at her villa on Jan. 3, 1968, was an accident. Defense and prosecution lawyers filed appeals. The prosecution had asked that Mrs. Bassi be convicted of intentional homicide and be given the maximum sentence of 30 years. Judge Hugo Perez Bautista, in pronouncing sentence, decided on a charge of simple intentional homicide carrying the lesser penalty. Mrs. Bassi, dressed in red shorts and a white blouse, was painting at an easel in her jail cell when Alberto Jimenez Gonzalez, a court secretary, came to read her the formal decision. "I am not in agreement because I am innocent," she told him. Mrs. Bassi, an attractive grandmother, has been in the Acapulco jail since the night the fatal shots were fired at the edge of the swimming pool of the family villa. TUCSON (AP) - A Nobel prize winner yesterday described the theoretical nuclear formula for making diamonds. The only problem, said Dr. Willard Libby, is trying to find the gem after the blast. Libby, director of the University of California at Los Antibarefoot Angeles Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, spoke to about 200 scientists and educators attending the University of Arizona symposium on education for the peaceful uses of nuclear explosives. Libby said a diamond is made by sandwiching a large block of graphite between two nuclear devices and pulling the switch. 'We do Hot know exactly 1 j* I how it works," he said, "and law CllSCOUrageCl if we could ever find one of those diamonds after the SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)The city can't pass a law barring bare feet on public streets just because some residents think hippies have no soles, the city attorney's office ruled yesterday. City Attorney Thomas O'Connor informed a supervisors' committee a ban on bare feet would be unconstitutional. He was asked for the opinion after Everett B. Anderson suggested at a board meeting that such an ordinance is needed to control barefooted hippies. "Unless the proposed legislation can be justified as protecting the general public from disease and injury, legislation designed solely to protect that portion of the populace who desire to roam the streets barefooted cannot be justified as a legitimate exercise of police power," said O'Connor. Dr. Erwin Braff, head of the bureau of disease control, said the only people hurt by bare feet are those who step on broken glass. blast, perhaps we woujd know more." Libby, who received the Nobel prize in 1960 for work in carbon dating, said more than $250 million has been tspent on the diamond-making project in the past 12 years. Libby said there is little international interest in peaceful uses of nuclear explosives. "However, the demand for nuclear devices will outnumber the supply if economic accomplishments can be made in mining and oil shale developments," said the former member of the Atomic Energy Commission. Libby mentioned possibilities of forming harbors, canals and breaking up copper ore using nuclear explosives. Libby spoke in the final session of the three-day sym- posiiim.
