In Willits last week, Chief Criminal Deputy William White of Ukiah cleared up an assault, kid­ naping and robbery, and secured a 3-page confession from the "victim," being ably assisted by Chief of Police Griffin of Willits. Maynard McGraw of Berkeley was the "victim" and it started when McGraw's friend, Richard Leach, also of Berkeley, went to Chief Griffin and reported that MoGraw had disappeared, saying he feared the young man was the victim of amnesia, as he had been [•studying hard. Late in the afternoon McGraw appeared and reported how he had been assaulted, kidnaped and robbed. When White took over the investigation he told him he had taken his car to a service station for gas and left it there while he cashed a check at the abnk. When he returned he went to the rest room and as he came out a man stuck some object against his ribs and he was told to go through a hole in the fence. Down an alley about 100 feet he came to a Ford in which a man was seated at the wheel. When he got into the car he was slugged and the next thing he Icnew was when he "came to" two miles north of "vVillits, minus two $50 bills and two $20 bills. McGraw was taken to Dr. Babcock for examination of a wound on his head and what the doctor found did not coincide with the time element arid after protracted questioning he spilled the beans. Leach and. two elderly ladies had bargained with ' McGraw to take them to Vancouver, Washington, and each had given him $20. McGraw had ii landlady in Berkeley who had ideas about board and room rent and didn't care much about trips to Vancouver taken by other people, so she got McGraw's money. After failing to negotiate a loan that would finance the trip McGraw decided to lay the matter on the knees of the gods, so the party took off. After he bought gas at Willits and cashed his $3 check he still was 64 cents short of-the ' SACRAMENTO, June 19 — <WNS>—Irogol action to prevent the so-called "bill of rights" proposition fi-om appearing on the No- I vember ballot was predicted here , tcdoy as Secretary of State Frank Jordan nnnounted the proponents ; of the measure had officially filed sufficient signatures to qualify for i the general election ballot.

It has been the period of the greatest growth in population and in industrial and commercial development ever witnessed by an American state. • No one will deny how significantly the Golden Gate Bridge has proven its value, in war and peace, both for public convenience and vital necessity. •Yet we arc apt to forget, as time marches on and the Bridge becomes more and more of value to the State, the courage and pioneering spirit of those who fought to make possible this world famous structure. San Franciscans, yes, but also men from other parts of the District... Taxpayers, engineers, bankers and investors all played their leading parts. • And, lest we forget, the public whose patronage has made the Bridge an outstanding success. facts ABOUT THE BRIDGE • Since the Bridge was opened the District has met ever)' obligation as it has Become due'. During that tinne there has never been a deficit nor has the District been compelled to levy an assessment on the taxpayers of the District at any time. The original bonded indebtedness of $35,000,000 has been reduced at the present to $3 3,600,000. Another $400,000 in bonds -will become due and will be redeemed on July 1,1948. To date the Bridge District has also paid out a total of $15,000,000 in interest on these bonds. At the same time the Board has made allocations of sufficient monies of the bond sinking fiind to insure the annual payment of maturities on non-callable bonds through July 1,1953. , .
