BULLDOG 24 The Artama Republic Phoenix, Wed., Jm» 17, Tit T n «0 J» v Republic Photo by Con Keyti tne j. u. Bud Kmgerys soon will sail their own yacht to Alaskan waters 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 yesterday to assemble information on the power line proposal. He pointed out that the proposal has 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. AH of these groups urged that all power lines from the Page area (about 5 or 10 others 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 and wildlife development projects in the three grazing districts of the state and the Colorado River Land Use District.

I'll let you know what happens when I get back." Court refuses Judd sentence review The Arizona Supreme Court yesterday refused to interfere with appellate court decisions against Phoenix trunk murderess Winnie Ruth JudcUnd in favor of Pima County Sheriff Waldon Burr in grand jury ouster proceedings against him. The high court declined to review a decision by Division 1 of the State Court of Appeals saying that Maricopa County Superior Court cannot compel the State Board of Pardons and Paroles to recommend a reduction sought by Mrs. Judd in her life sentence. This decision held that Su- perior Court powers over the board are limited to seeing that the board respects the constitutional right of those coming before it to due process of law. In the Burr case, Division 2 of the appeals court upheld dismissal of Pima County grand jury accusations of official misconduct on Burr's part between 1958 and 1964. The accusations amounted to a criminal proceeding for Burr's removal and were subject to dismissal because they were belatedly brought in 1968, the appellate court held. The Supreme Court refused to review this holding.

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 regcstration 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 Court sets aside mutiny verdict WASHINGTON (NYTS) Citing lack of sufficient evidence, a court of military review yesterday set aside the mutiny conviction of a private who was court-martialed for his participation in the alleged "mutiny" by 27 soldiers at the Presidio stockade in San Francisco in October 1968. Instead, the Army court of military review found Ne- sery D. Sood, 27, guilty of what is called a "lesser included offense," willful disobedience of a lawful order. The ruling on Sood's conviction is the first to be made by an appellate court that considered the issue of whether in fact a mutiny had occurred. The language of the decision raises the prospect that at least some of the 22 other mutiny convictions in the much - publicized case may be overturned. Policemen plan long foot race LOS ANGELES (UPI) Ten members of the Los Angeles and San Francisco police departments are preparing for a foot race from the City Hall here to San Francisco. Each man will run five 10- mile legs of the relay and the rest of the team will follow along in two camper trucks. Most of the officers are Police Academy staffers. The LAPD team raced the Los Angeles sheriff's department to San Diego last month and beat them by 300 yards on the 120-mile trip. The San Francisco police issued the challenge for this race. 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 Jacobson 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 tfaek manager Hal Nunn testified at ah Arizona Racing Commission hearing May 12 that Emprise failed to give him promised financing 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. SPECIAL PURCHASE!
