RbHUdLIC The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Fri., April 4,1969 fore JllMlt Kret quits leadership Continued from Page 1 But nobody chdftged his vote and when the roll call was completed the motion carried, 18-14. Shortly afterward, the House decided to adjourn until 2 p.m. Tuesday as loud cheers went up on floor from weary members tired of the Senate stalemate. House Speaker John Haugh, R-Pifna, said the Senate impasse "throws open the question of adjournment." "Since the decision rests entirely in the Senate at this point, we decided to give them a day and a half to make their decision before we have to make ours," he said. The Senate struggled with the money problem behind closed doors until 3:30 p.m., when the Rules Committee voted the bill out with 12 votes. Information leaking out from disgusted members indicated that several "package plans" were proposed to solve the dilemma caused by cutting the university operating budget from the requested $60.4 million to $56.6 million. The Pima County delegation turned down a proposal to leave the operating budget unchanged, to give the universities $12.2 million in new construction money and appropriate $2 million to start a state office building. In fact, this proposal got only nine votes. Sen. Douglas Holsclaw, R-Pima, reportedly countered with a suggestion that $1.5 million be subtracted from the proposed $12.2 million for new construction arid given to the universities for additional operating expenses. This also failed. At this point, the Senate leaders decided to play "showdown" by bringing the bill to the floor and force each member to stand up in public view and be counted. But this also fell flat when the Democrats and the three Pima rebels forced adjournment. While tfret included both President Porter and Senate Whip Orme Lewis Jr., R-Maricopa, in his warning that an adjournment vote was a "vote of no confidence," they said they have no intention of resigning. "I'm not resigning," Lewis told a reporter. "It was too hasty a decision he (Kret) made." If Kret sticks by his announced intention to resign, there was considerable speculation that Sen. Bill Jacquin, R-Pima, .might be named the new majority leader. Jacquin served as whip of the Republican-controlled 28th Legislature, but was bypassed this year. This caused a falling out on the part of the Pima County faction, which had been waiting for the moment when they could exercise their muscles on the fragile majority. 'Raise hell' on taxes, car firms told United Press International WASHINGTON - Walter Ueulher, president of the United Auto Workers, said yesterday major car companies should be "raising hell" because some other industries 1-nve a lighter federal tax burden. Reuther, appearing before the House Ways and Means i.'ommittee tax abuse investigation, singled out the oil industry as an example. "If I were president of General Motors," Reuther said, smiling about his bargaining table rival, "and I want to emphasize that I am not au- fiorized to speak for him, I'd be raising hell." Reuther appealed for a series of reforms to tax the wealthy who pay little or no tax and at the same time, asked for relief for middle and low income taxpayers. Reuther said unfairness in hue laws is unacceptable at any time, but added it is "absolutely indefensible and intolerable" for high income people to avoid taxation while young men die in Vietnam. Committee Chairman Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., told Reuther, "The reason you have a tax is to defray the costs of governments," and added that when people try to use the tax system for various "social services you get into trouble." Mills said a number of the provisions considered loopholes originated when Congress provided tax relief for a single case — only to find that numerous people took advantage of it. Reuther asked for restrictions or an end to various tax benefits, including capital gains tax treatment, unlimited charitable contributions, tax-free municipal bonds, "fictitious" farm losses against 6ther income, oil depletion allowances, and the 7 per cent business investment tax credit. "The deep rumblings of a taxpayers' revolt are becoming more audible as the small and middle income homeowner is forced to carry a disproportionate share of the tax burden while the rich, by taking advantage of the many tax loopholes available to them, escape their fair share," Reuther said. Rep. James B. Utt, R-Calif., told Reuther he was about the 100th witness to say there is a taxpayers' revolt over "loopholes," but Utt wondered why the sudden cry for reform, since nearly all the "loopholes" had been in the law for years. "This indicates how patient the American taxpayer has been," Reuther replied. "They're just catching up with the glaring facts that they are paying someone else's taxes. As long as they were in the dark they were quiet." Another witness, Rep. Henry Reuss, D-Wis., asked that 13 "loopholes" be closed, including the 7 per cent tax credit on business plant and equipment, costing the Treasury some $3 billion annually. "I've never had more mail on a subject than I've had on tax reform," Reuss said. Gusick's bail money, other property vanish Convicted child molester, Charles A. Gusick, was apparently 18 years too late in asking for the return of $60,000 bail money and other valuable property confiscated when he was arrested, it developed yesterday. The $60,000 bail posted by Gusick, serving 60 to 100 years, in the Arizona State Prison, was picked up Aug. 17, 1951, by his attorney, George T. Wilson, who died in 1954. Camera equipment, guns and a valuable stamp collection taken from Gusick's home by sheriff's deputies could not be located. Gusick, son of former Chicago gangster Jake "Greasy Thumb" Guzik, was sentenced to 20 consecutive 3- to 5-year terms in prison by former Superior Court Judge Renz L. Jennings. Gusick pleaded guilty to 20 counts of committing lewd and lascivious acts with Phoenix children. Tucson attorney Maxwell R. Palmer Jr. petitioned the court yesterday to return the bail money and the personal property. Presiding Judge Charles L. Hardy granted the request for the return of the personal property, but acknowledged it could not be determined what happened to it. The missing property was listed on a search warrant return, Hardy said, but no further trace of it could be found in court records. Included in the missing property were a movie projector, a Polaroid camera, Leica camera, darkroom equipment, four rifles, three pistols and a stamp collection. In addition to the $60,000 bail money, Wilson also obtained Gusick's house at 6734 N. 13th Place, valued at about $30,000, for his legal services, Drug to aid clotting for hemophiles New York Times Service NEW YORK-The federal government has approved for marketing a new drug that supplies in highly concentrated form the clotting factors that are lacking in the blood of some hemophiliacs. The addition of this new drug, called Konyne, to the medical armamentarium means that nearly all patients with what is known as bleeder's disease can now be treated quickly and effectively without the costly and often dangerous administration of large quantities of blood plasma. Konyne, prepared by Cutter Laboratories of Berkeley, Calif., contains in concentrated form the clotting factors known as IX, II, VII and X, any one of which is missing in the blood of about 20 per cent of hemophiliacs. The great majority of hemophiliacs do not have clotting factor VIII, a concentrate of which is marketed by the Hyland Division of Baxter Laboratories, Inc. Pig farmer free of feed charge TUCSON (AP) - A Superior Court jury yesterday refused to convict an Avra Valley pig farmer charged with feeding uncooked garbage to his swine. Judge Jack G. Marks declared a mistrial for Michael Coronado when the jury failed to reach a decision. According to Arizona law, all pig food must be cooked for 30 minutes before it is served.

I'm eager to get arrested for my It's just to make my old man mad!" Dead heart recipient showed no rejection PENDINE, England - A battered hnfo from motoring's golden age of record breaking was gently exhumed from the windswept sands here last week. Babs, the car in which the Welsh racing driver J. G. Parry Thomas died as he sped toward a world record 42 years ago, was taken from the hole in which mourning villagers had buried it. On March 3, 1927, the blue-and*white 500 horsepower, 27-liter giant was streaking across the 7-mile sweep of Pendine Sands. One of the driving chains snapped, burst through its guard, and killed Thomas. Between 1924 and 1927 Pendine villages had seen Thomas and Malcolm Campbell break the world land speed record five times on these sands. On his last journey, Thomas, who held the record twice in 1926, was trying to beat Campbell's record of 175 mph. For the past four years Owen Wyn Owen, a lecturer in engineering at Bangor Technical College and a motor historian, has planned to retrieve the car and restore it. At first many villagers objected. The matter was complicated because the site was within the boundary of an army range. But last December ft meeting of local people agreed to ask the ministry of defense for permission to dig. A mechanical digger broke through concrete covering the car and a crane hauled Babs out. One wheel was intact and could still be turned. Owen said: 'It will take me two or three years to restore Babs to original condition." After restoration, the car will return to Pendine and be placed on permanent exhibition. TORRANCE, Calif. (UPI)—Southern California's first heart transplant recipient, Richard Charles Newell, who died Wednesday night from pneumonia, showed no signs of rejecting the new heart he received last Feb. 20, a hospital spokesman said yesterday. "He showed no signs of rejecting the heart. It was strong right up to the end," said a spokesman for Harbor General Hospital where Newell, 58, received the heart of a 23-year-old mother who had committed suicide. Newell, a. grocer from Oxnard, Calif., had progressed so well that he became an outpatient -about two weeks ago. He stayed at a nearby motel, returning to the hospital for checkups. The spokesman said, "He was continuing to make satisfactory progress up to the last episode." Newell showed the first symptoms of pneumonia Wednesday morning, about 12 hours before he died. The grocer was removed from drug therapy—drugs to suppress the body's natural rejection mechanism—very early after the operation, the spokesman said. Newell, who had led a bed-to-chair existence before his surgery, was able to move around and go for short trips with his wife after the operation. Newell received the heart of Mrs. Shirley Ann Highhouse, who committed suicide after an argument with her husband who gave permission for the transplant. Her kidneys also were transplanted to other recipients. ABM called impractical Washington Post Service WASHINGTON-Sen.. Charles E. Goodell, R-N.Y., said yesterday that Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird tried unsuccessfully to dissuade him from making a statement mocking the antiballistic missile (ABM) system as a potential white elephant. He said Laird called him early yesterday at National Airport just before Goodell left for Dayton, Ohio, to stage a public comparison between the ABM and the Air Force bomber that never was used, the XB70. Goodell would say only that he and Laird discussed the merits of the ABM and the XB70 and that the defense secretary "obviously was trying to dissuade me." the SmfasltbiicKIe Thing.
