I School paper faces Jarvis-Gann claim EL CAJON (AP) A claim for $800,000 is being pressed on behalf of Howard Jarvis and Paul Gann over Brad Teaby's story in the Granite Hills High paper. Teaby, 16, tried to explain the Jarvis-Gann tax limitation initiative. In a footnote, he identifiied Jarvis and Gann as "prominent real estate owners. The footnote went on to say passage of this bili will save them both several million dollars. The claim against the Clarion and Teaby, the first step toward filing a libel suit in court, describes the footnote as libelous.

The students think it's pretty ridiculous," Brad said Thursday. But AByn Smith, the 17-year-old editor, said shell publish a partial retraction April 28. In a letter to a San Diego attorney representing Jarvis and Gann, the editor said they are certainly prominent no doubt, own some real property in California. The claim was formally rejected by the district's school board. Supt.

Leland B. Newcomer said Jarvis and Gann couldnt prove libelous intent. Principal Philip Morell said he was pleased that young Teaby tried to write about complex current events instead of who kissed Susie in the the back of the blue Chevy. Newcomer said he was unsure why Jarvis and Gann are taking on a 16-year-old boy in a little school newspaper. As for Brad, he said hes having second thoughts about a career in journalism.

I'm not so sure after this its become a little shaky, he said.

Hayakawa, said today he may withdraw his support from the Panama Canal treaty because President Carter's foreign policy has created an impression of U.S. weakness overseas. In a letter to Carter, Hayakawa specifically attacked Americas timid acquiesence before Communist aggression around the world and mentioned Carters cancellation of the B1 bomber program and delay of the neutrom bomb. Hayakawa, who voted for the first treaty, was the latest among several senators threatening to vote against the main treaty next Tuesday after originally supporting the two-treaty package to turn the Canal over to Panama Dec. 31, 1999.

Hayakawa disclosed he had written Carter after awakening apartment Monday, and a roommate. Ileen Castillo, called the sheriffs office and filed a missing person report when she became alarmed at Miss Anderson's absence. Miss Castillo was alarmed, Mosunic said, because Miss Anderson's baggage and personal effects were in the apartment, her auto was at the apartment, and her work uniform appeared to have been washed so she could wear it. Miss Anderson was listed as a missing person until Wednesday, when her purse, bloodstained clothing and a piece of carpeting were found at the Yuba City dump, LOS GATOS Mary Christina Anderson, 22, missing since Monday, has been found bludgeoned, stabbed and shot, and a man who lives in her apartment building has been arrested in connection with the slaying.

Clanahan has been booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail in San Jose on counts of murder, rape and burglary. Miss Anderson, a waitress at the Le Baron Hotel in San Jose, and a student at West Valley College in Saratoga, had gone to San Diego to visit her parents April 5, Mosunic said.

I have tried to argue, Hayakawa wrote, that the new arrangements regarding the Canal show the strength and self-confidence of a great nation that is willing to change an old and unequal treaty in order to treat the Republic of Panama as a partner and equal in the family of nations. But how can I maintain this postion, Mr. President, when there is nothing in our foreign policy that shows anything but silence or timid acquiescence in the face of determined communist aggression? At this juncture, I want you to know how very difficult it is for me to continue to support your foreign policies.

Menlos La Loma School to close doors in June NEW YORK (AP) The stock market staged an explosive rally today, caught up in a rush of buying by cash-laden institutions that broke trading-volume records at the New York Stock Exchange.

Shares traded hit 52.3 million. There was no single news development to explain the upsurge of activity. Instead, analysts said the market's recent strength in the face of bad news on inflation and other economic problems had touched off heavy buying by investing institutions which had been sitting with large reserves of cash. They also said several factors added to the buying fever today. The dollar climbed in value against leading foreign currencies.

And the relatively small $400 million rise in the basic measure of the money supply reported late Thursday by the Federal Reserve came as a pleasant surprise to Wall Street. Most Fed-watchers had been predicting a large increase that might prompt the central bank to tighten credit in its efforts to restrain inflation. I would think we've been building up to this for some time, said Harry A. Jacobs chairman of Bache Halsey Stuart Shields Inc. The market had been battered for many months by bad news on inflation, interest rates and the dollar.

I think it decided it had had all the bad news it was going to take. Analysts said cash-laden institutions stormed the market because the Federal Reserve's report late Thursday of a smaller-than-expect--ed $400 million money supply increase sent the dollar surging on foreign exchanges. (See page 38 for closing stock list) trict's master plan calls for consolidation to two schools by 1980-81, to accommodate shrinking enrollment and budget. Board President William Essel-stein cast a swing vote. He preferred to close Ladera this year, he said, but no bids were received for leasing that school, and he didnt want to postpone the decision any longer to re-issue a call for bids.

Trustees had called for bids on all three schools considered for closure, Ladera, Las Lomitas and La Loma. By SHARON NOGUCHI La Loma School in Menlo Park will be closed as a public school in June, and Ladera School in Atherton is next in line for closure, trustees of the Las Lomitas School District decided Thursday night. Before an audience of well over 100 people, the board unanimously voted to close La Loma, after a vote to close Ladera in June failed, 2 to 3. A 6-8 school will continue next year at La Entrada School in Menlo Park, with K-5 schools at Las Lomitas and Ladera Schools.

The group is an offshoot of Trinity School, a private religious school that has. operated at St. Bede's Church in Menlo Park since the early 1960s.

Because of the rivalry, the three whales have not been able to perform together for the past year, with Kianu usually kept on the sidelines except when Yaka was unable to perform.

Kianu has been sold to the World Safari park in Shirahama, a dry springs resort in Japan. The park is a $40 million development with $3 million worth of water filtration and life support systems for the marine life, Demetrios said. The park is to open April 22. Getting Kianu there will be half the fun. A special sling has been made to hoist her out of the water, and planning for the move has been derway for three months under the direction of Dr.

Martin Dinnes, Ma rine World veterinarian, and Sonny Allen, head of mammal training at Marine World, who will be accompanying her on the move. The move is to start Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with lowering of the water in her tank, which will take about 3 12 hours. Trainers and divers will then wrap the sling around her for lifting onto a flatbed truck. About midnight, she will leave for the San Francisco International Airport for loading by 1:45 a.m.

onto a Flying Tigers Airline 747 cargo plane. (There is no Flying Whales airline.) She is to arrive in Tokyo about 7 a.m. Monday, where she will transfer to Hankyo Airlines for the trip to NankiShirahama Airport She should arrive at World Safari abopt 10:30 a.m. Monday, according the schedule. Yaka, will outgrow the space available within the next year or two, he said.

He said there are plans to build a new whale home, but they are still indefinite, and the space situation could become a serious problem for the health of the whales. Also, he said, Kianu is Jealous. Nepo has recently reached sexual maturity, which has resulted in extended periods of incompatibility amongst the three whales, primarily between Kianu and Yaka, Demetrios said in an announcement of the sale. Nepo apparently has eyes only for Yaka, and this has made Kianu exceedingly jealous, he said. Because Cetaceans (the whale family) are essentially a matriarchal society, the older female thought that wasnt quite cricket By JAY THORWALDSON Marine World-Africa USA has sold Kianu, one of its three performing killer whales, to a new oceanarium in Japan.

Her name means Big Woman in Eskimo. Mike Demetrios, Marine World president, said the decision to sell Kianu was an extremely difficult and agonizing one to make. But he said there is a space problem at the present Oceana stadium, where the whales are kept: The two other young whales keep growing.
