PAGE SIX DISPATCH DEMOCRAT, URIAH, CALIFORNIA, FRIDAY, MARCH i9, lp4 TPOLLARD James Angelo Pollard, found guilty of manslaughter in the Christmas eve jungle slaying of Archie Murdoclc, a local Indian, was sentenced Friday to San Quentin prison. In view of the fact that .there were no witnesses to the slaying ihe 'evidence was largely circumstantial and Pollard's own testimony did him no particular good, as he sought to bolster' his plea of self-defense. ,, Pollard claimed that he was set upon and struck over the head by SiurdocJc, and that while Murdoclt sat upon him and beat him with his fists, he held one of the Indian's hands while he reached into his own pocltet, secured his poclcet- khife, opened it and stabbed the Indian in the throat, then slashed h^im across the face several times. . The light took place on the night of December 24 and Pollard was arrested at Willits the following Sunday, and at that time showed no eviderjce of a fight, such as he described, nor were his clothes Ijloody, as they should have been had the knifing of Murdock taken place in' the manner described. There was no blood at all on his clothing. Among the witnesses called were two police officers from Val- lejb where Pollard is known, who testified that he had many times been, confined in jail at that place. After the killing, Pollard left Ukiah for Willits where he was pjcked up by Willits police on advices from Sheriff Broaddus. He had become the No. 1 suspect after one of the quartet rounded up by Ukiah police had identified State Movie House Closed Attorney Agrees To Keep Show Dark Till Repaired Attorney James Mclnnis, representing the Trinity Theatres, Inc., appeared in Superior court Monday to answer the complaint of the City of Ukiah for an-injunction against the State Theatre of Ukiah and when his hour in court was over he had agreed to close the picture house until the building could be made safe for use, and he had secured the approval of City Engineer Gus Wallach. Attorney Mclnnes stipulated to the court that the State Theatre building was dangerous and liable! to collapse. Then he told the court that that very morning the Trinity Theatres, Inc., had reecived word from Washington that the priority hurdles had been cleared and the "go-ah"ead" order had been given for a new theatre building in Ukiah, which, he said, would be completed within 90 days. On the strength of this news he asked the court to withhold ihe injunction order for the present building. • In view of the admission that the building might fall down any' time, the court declined to with- 1 hold the order, but on' the promise that the building would be closed until it could pass inspection by the city engineer, agreed to hold the order in abeyance until and when the promise was made good. When Judge Gibson suggested that 90 days was a too short period in which tb complete a building such as would be required. Attorney iWcInnes said it could be Fifteen "Armed" Bandits Captured in Raids done, easily, and in fact had been rire "pockrtknife "picked^ in the case of their Modesto jungle camp by Chief of Police yiarengo as having belonged to a man named Pollard. The party ?Tiaking the identification had seen tiie knife in other jungle camps on several occasions. Co. B Given First Gov't Inspection Company B, California National Guard, was federally inspected Monday with Colonel Patterson of the Department of the Inspector General, Sixth Army, as inspection oflficer.'

Unit inspection was held at 8 o'clock with Colonel Patterson delivering a short, pomted talk to the men, in which he explaned the job the National Guard has ahead of it.

As to the state of the unit, Captain Smith says more men are rtdeded and all who are qualified for guard service will be accepted until the unit reaches its full strength, which he would like to see accomplished as soon as possible. Drs. Miller Take Country Retreat Drs. Arthur and Glenn Miller have purchased the property east of Willits which for the past three years has been the retreat of Lyman J.

Douse That Light! That north of the Tehachapi peacetime brownout is as important to most of the state as the blackout was to London during the blitz — though substantially less i^;ksome to the public. Rather than bombs, California is faced with the combined results of a 2-year drought and an unprecedented population influx. Power is in greater demand today than during the very height of the war. To cooperate in making the brownout effective and save vital power for agricultural and indus- trail users, every home is asked to leave unlighted one 100-watt light bulb each evening. Some 90,000 kilowatts of power would be saved, power company officials estimated—the equivalent of the output of a large electric powerhouse.

The state department of education has been allocated $203,041 of a total congressional appropriation of $5,000,000 for the national lunch program, to which has been reallocated an additional $57,250, This gives California schools $260,•291. More Rights . For Indians Total Withdrawal . From U.S. Supervisioit Is Forecast SACRAMENTO, M&rch 13 — (WNS)—California's 24,000 Indians are'getting closer to a complete withdrawal from U. S. government supervision, according to statement made here by Walter V. Woehlke, federal Indian Affal,»s director for California. . Indians are now receiving educational advantages, social security benefits, veteran assistance., and similar services to the same ex- t6ftt as , all California (utizeni;.It' was'^aid, and impositions on Indian lands are being stopp.ed. ;•. • In a letter to the department here, William Zimmerman, acting j r^nchb. cpmmissioner of Indian Affairs in Washingtori, pointed out thait legis-^ lation is perrding'at the national capitol to outlaw the liquor laws pertaining ,to Indians' and to turn over civil and criminal jiu-isdie- tion to state courts. Greatest controversy centers around pending United States Senate Bill' 168S, Which proposes to remove'restrictions on the real and personal.property of Qalifor- nla Indians and prescribes a method for the liqiii(}ation of all property and assets of California tribes through purchase by the United States and the pro'rata distribution of the proceeds among the individual members. Indians ovm considerable property in California, it^was revealed, some 9300 owning 651,000 acres of tax exempt land, including 30,000 acres of irrigable lands, 140,000 of forest lands containing 1,200,000,000 board feet of standing timber, valuable residential and business property and a trust fund of over $5,000,000. .

Frank Rogina efux toTheodof Feibusch et ux,'land In Yokayo Roland Boynten Given 35-Yeor Service Pin Pacific Gas By Thirty-five years, or what most anyone would refer to as a long, long time ago, Roland V, Boynton of Potter Valley began his employment w^th the Pacific Gas & Electric Company through its predecessor company, Snow Moun tain Light & Power Company, and this service has been, acknowledged by the award of a service pin in honor of his long and faithful service; / In Evanston, Wyoming, in 1,890, a son was born to'Dr. Charles and Capitola Boynton and that was where we make our first acquaintance with Roland V. Boynton. In 1897 we find him with his parents in Merced county, California, and in Potter Valley in 1905. He graduated from grammar school in Mendocino county and completed a correspondence electrical course which training has stood him well. In 1908 he became the village smithy with "large and sinewy hands,'' a trade he followed for foiir years. Novemebr 7, 1912, a job as oiler in the Potter Valley powerhouse presented itself and he left the blacksmith shop. In February, 1918, ''Kaiser BUI" kicked over the traces and Roland enlisted in the 37th U.S. Engineers and served gallantly in France, Luxembourg knd Germany and arrived back in Potter Valley in May, ^919, with his honorable discharge. After having won the war and returned a hero to a certain fair maiden in Potter Valley, it was only natural that someone would sooner or later pop the question,, which was done, and on October 19, 1919, Minnie V.'Maze and Roland V. Boynton became bride and groom. This has been,a happy marriage and has brought forth two fine sons, Sterling Boyntor. who is now an operator for the company at Drum powerhouse; Searles Boynton is attending the College of Physicians and Surgeons in San Francisco, as a dental student. To know Potter Valley for 35 years compels one to love it and enjoy a home there. The Boyntons own a 4(j-acre farm, 25 acres of which are planted to Bartlett pears, the balance devoted to general farming. Yes, 35 years is a long time, but if they had these years to live over again we dare say you would find Mr. and Mrs. Roland Boynton substantial citizens of Potter Valley, just as they are today.
