24 The Arfeona*Republic SO Phoenix, Wed., Jnne 17,1970 Hearings to deal with power line The U.S. Bureau of Land Management will hold public hearings in Kingman and Phoenix this summer on the request of the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Power and Light to build a power line across the Arizona Strip. The hearings will deal with the question of whether the California city should be required to build the line in an existing corridor across Arizona. The decision to hold the hearings was approved yesterday by the BLM State Multiple Use Advisory Board, comprised of representatives of business, city and county governments, education and research, wildlife, recreation, livestock and soil and water conservation interests. No dates were set. The Los Angeles agency was urged to hold hearings in these areas after it requested right of way for the power line last February, but instead held hearings in St. George and Kanab, Utah, which would be little affected by the power line. Routing the line across the Strip area would cost Mohave and Coconino counties substantial tax revenues and scar public lands, opponents contended. Glendon Collins, land manager for BLM in Arizona, said a comprehensive study was started yeslerdny to assemble information on the power line proposal. He pointed out that the proposal hns been opposed by the Governor's Commission on Arizona Beauty, the Arizona Conservation Council and the Mohave County Board of Supervisors, plus several other private organizations. All of these groups urged that all power lines from the Page area (about 9 or 10 oth- ers going to Phoenix and Los Angeles are proposed) be required to follow a corridor that already has been established via Cameron. The Multiple Use Advisory Board requested Acting BLM Director Riley Foreman to submit findings of the study and the Phoenix and Kingman hearings to it, and that it be convened later this year to take formal action. The board unanimously adopted a resolution urging the U.S. Bureau of Sports Fisheries and Wildlife to retain an adequate predator control program in Arizona. The action was taken in the face of reports that the program would be greatly curtailed beginning July 1. Board members heard detailed reports on range improvement work and recreation nnd wildlife development projects in the three grazing districts of the state and the Colorado River Land Use District. Hospital office bids to open Bids for the construction of an office for the director of nursing at the new Maricopa County Hospital, 21th Street and Roosevelt, will be opened July 20 by the Board of Supervisors. The office addition will be an extension of the hospital's main floor, said County Manager Charles W. Miller. Meanwhile, the building is in the final stages of completion and is expected to be ready for occupancy in August. Emprise must list Tucson Turf stock Republic Washington Bureau WASHINGTON - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday took 'civil action affecting stock of the Tucson Turf Club, which is controlled by the Emprise Corp. of Buffalo, N.Y. The SEC suspended an ex- e m p t i o n from federal registration requirements which it previously had allowed on 298,000 shares of Tucson Turf Club stock. The suspension was made on the ground that ownership of the Roust Cosa Nostra., Steiger urges FOP stock was falsified at the time the exemption was applied for. The commission said the actual underwriter of the stock was Emprise Corp., not Jacob J. Isaacson of Omaha, Neb., who was named as the underwriter. Thus, said the SEC, Em- prise and not Isaacson owns 218,000 shares and is the controlling interest and source of financial backing of the track. The club filed a request in August 1967 asking that the 298,000 shares of $l-a-share stock be exempted. The SEC action yesterday will bring the Tucson Turf stock under the federal securities law, which requires detailed stock disclosures from issuers of all securities sold to the public in interstate commerce. Rep. Sam Steiger, R-Ariz., has charged in Congress and elsewhere that Emprise has underworld connections. Em- prise officials have denied the charges. Tucson Turf Club has been inactive since running an unsuccessful race meet at the old Rillito racetrack in the winter of 1967-68. Former track manager Hal Nunn testified at an Arizona Racing Commission hearing May 12 that Emprise failed to give him promised finandng for the track under an earlier ownership in 1964-65, then took over the physical facilities in a foreclosure sale. Tucson Turf stockholders have filed a $1 million lawsuit against Emprise and Isaacson, alleging misrepresentation. U.S. District Court Judge James A. Walsh dismissed one count against Isaacson June 9 on grounds federal court had no jurisdiction, but refused to grant a similar motion for Emprise. Northern Arizona Bureau Highway accidents fatal to 2 A New Mexico man died yesterday when he was struck by a car as he played catch in the middle of Interstate 40 near Sanders, and a 15-year- old Texas youth died yesterday of injuries he suffered in an accident Monday, the Department of Public Safety reported. The two were identified as Richard Parker, 24, of Man- ualito, N.M., and Bobby Frank Reams of Grand Prairie, Tex. 318 traffic deaths in 1970 305 same period 1969 Parker and a second man were playing catch in the middle of Interstate 40, patrolmen said they were told, when Parker dashed into the path of a car driven by Jimmie Leota Klein, 58, of San Bruno, Calif. Klein and a passenger in his car were not injured in the crash, officers said. The Reams youth died yesterday in Winslow Memorial Hospital as the result of massive head and internal injuries suffered in an accident on the Blue Ridge Reservoir Road 3 miles East of Arizona 87, investigators said. Reams and Dale Morey, 16, of 7448 E. Granada, Scottsdale, were riding in the bed of a pickup truck driven by Ronald Wayne Blackburn of 7417 E. Edgemont, Scottsdale, when it went out of control, left the road and overturned. Morey was reported in fair condition yesterday at Winslow Hospital with head injuries.

More about Starsky firing probe asked Continued from Page 23 Morris said, to "retain counsel to intervene in the Starsky matter in court in the event that issue of stability of employment (tenure) is attacked by the attorney general." In dismissing Starsky, the regents cited his "general unfitness for a position with the faculty of ASU, which is the core of the separate specifications with which he was charged." They offered him a choice between dismissal and a year of terminal sabbatical at 60 per cent pay. Starsky and his attorney, Alan Kyman, replied that the professor was entitled to the sabbatical regardless and that they would appeal the dismissal in court. FLAGSTAFF - Rep. Sam Steiger, R-Ariz. last night offered a partial answer to containing the spread of organized crime. "You can roust them!" he told 200 state law enforcement officials and wives at the 33rd annual state conference of the Fraternal Order of Police. "You know who they are, and if you don't, you can find out." Steiger suggested that the rousting of organized crime should take place at other levels besides the police. "These people have to deal with a lot of regulatory agencies — those agencies ought to roust them too. It takes some guts on the part of administrators, so make your communities aware of the value of your expertise — and of the value of an administrative arm with some guts," he said. Steiger also urged police departments to warn the business community of the .potential dangers of organized crime. He pointed out that it had existed in Arizona since 1936 but never on the large scale it has assumed on the East Coast. But he warned, "We've become a fertile area for investment of organized crime. "The more respectable their associates in the business world, the better their chances of expanding their interests. They work it to a science and it's one of their most important methods of operation.

"When a state or city has been corrupted systematically the corruption grows. You only have to study Newark and certain cities in Louisiana and Ohio to see it. Cities end up paying double and triple the price for things they aren't getting," he noted. The Mafia, with an annual gross of $60 billion a year, is in a position to hire the best professionals in any field, Steiger asserted. As a result, "your chances of success in getting a wholesale conviction in organized crime are two: Slim or none." So the best weapon is rousting, he observed. "I think you people can be the cutting edge of the sword," and if civil libertarians oppose it, he suggested, "Tell them to look at the wreckage in a city dominated by organized crime, the narcotics and other problems. "It's a lot easier to keep them out than to get them out once they're in," he said. FOP delegates agreed with a standing ovation.
