Osborn Road, was made by state witness Mrs. Norene Beehler at the first day of a preliminary hearing before Justice of the Peace Ralph Jenkins in Northwest Phoenix Justice Court. Mrs. Beehler, of 3795 W. Luke Ave., told Deputy County Attorney Joseph Schoepf hat she saw Pyhel, whom she pointed out in court, in the parking lot as she left her job as student assistant in the college library at 4 p.m. Sept. 18 and made her way to her car before going home. THE CASE was heard before Jenkins because Justice of the Peace Marion Reno, who ordinarily presides in the northwest Phoenix precinct, disqualified himself after the defense filed a motion of bias and prejudice against him. The motion stemmed from Reno's attempt to raise Py- hel's bond from the original $13,750 to $38,500. The defense appealed the increase and, alter a Superior Court ruling in Pyhel's favor, the bond now stands at $25,300. Pyhel, who was arrested on Sept.:23,-is charged with kid- naping, assault with a deadly weapon and grand theft, auto in the Phoenix court. Charges of rape and lewd and lascivious acts are pending against him in Chandler Justice Court, where his preliminary hearing is set before Judge Coy Beasley at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 19. : PYHEL BECAME a suspect in the case- after police noticed a resemblance between sketches of her assailant drawn by the victim, an artist, and a mug shot of Py- hel which was in the possession of the Scottsdale police department. •'...• At;., the time of his arrest, Pyhel, a coodinator for the Salt River Project, was free on $300 bond from Scottsdale City .'Court on an indecent exposure charge. After -Mrs. Beehler's testimony yesterday, the hearing was continued to an unspecified date next week. Attorney's aide quits Bill Kayanaugh, administrative assistant to Maricopa County Atty. Moise Berger, quit yesterday as the result of a salary dispute between Berger and the Board of Supervisors. : Berger wanted the board to raise Kavanaugh's salary $3,500, to $13,800 annually, and the board refused. Kavanaugh is reportedly going to accept employment with the Internal Revenue Service in Los Angeles at a cut in salary. Berger had told board members that Kavanaugh had been offered a job with the IRS at $14,500. However, a spokesman for the federal office in California told Supervisor Bob Stark that Kavanaugh had been offered less than $10,000 to come to work. , needle in gift goodies Two razor blades and a needle were found in apples and candy handed out during Halloween trick or treating Friday night in the neighborhood of 16th Street and Bell Road, police said yesterday. Detective Ken Troutman appealed for information that might expose the identity of the.sadistic prankster.

The bureau's latest study estimated a decline of 35,200 people in the next year to 7,983,900 as of July 1, 1967, Killer youth sentenced to 5 to 7 years A 17-year-old youth who killed a man after an argument over who would be served first at a hamburger stand, was sentenced yesterday to 5 to 7 years in prison. Leon Curtis Adair, then 16, stabbed Alfred Luna, 23, of Casa Grande, in the heart May 24 after following him to his car during a fight in front of the Jack-In-The-Box, 1601 E. Van Buren. Adair was convicted Oct. 10 by a Superior Court jury of voluntary manslaughter. Yesterday, as Superior Court Judge Robert L. Myers handed down the sentence, obscenities were shouted by several spectators in the courtroom. The spectators supported a plea by Adair's attorney Gerald Alston that the youth be placed on probation. In ordering the sentence, Myers said:. "...this court finds you .....are guilty of the crime. Because of the age of the defendant in this matter I have given the decision very serious study ... but in light of all facts surrounding this case and his past record I feel I cannot place him on probation." In July, Juvenile Court Judge William Holohan remanded Adair from Juvenile Court for trial as an adult and Adair was charged with second-degree murder. Adair had appeared in Juvenile Court several times for fighting and stealing. During the three-day trial in the court of Myers, Adah- testified he stabbed Luna in self-defense. 1, 1968. Other census data indicated that substantial migration out of Manhattan and Brooklyn played a major influence in the city's population changes. Manhattan was estimated to have had 196,900 more people moving out than in between 1960 and 1966, the latest years available, and Brooklyn's net outward flow was put at 99,300. the city as a whole, there were 185,900 more people moving out than in from 1960 to 1966, even though the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island showed a net migration on the plus side. During the decade of the 1950s, the city had witnessed a falling off in population — down 109,973 from 7,891,957 in 1950 to 7,781,984 in 1960. This was a decade when the city appeared to be losing heavily as middle-income residents moved to the suburbs. By DANIEL BEN-HORIN They mourned the "Pepsi Kid" last night. Rick Ornelas spoke about him: "He went to the bartender and asked for a cola.' The bartender said, 'What do you want in it?' John said 'Nothing' and the bartender laughed and said, 'It takes all kinds'." The Pepsi Kid, John Brockman, 28, of 1007 S. 19th Ave., spent Saturday night with fellow members of the Rebel Sky Divers Parachuting Club at a barbecue and parachute exhibition sponsored by the 82nd Airborne Association. At 3 a.m. Sunday morning, he was dead — shot three times during a brawl a block from his home. Last night, 20 fellow club members emptied their pockets of $169 for Brockman's widow and child, heard how he came to die, and lamented both his death and the fact that their sport and their club would become linked in the public mind with drinking, fighting and shooting. Early in the meeting at the Scottsdale okays increase in pay for Indian landfill game charged at fair Two men were charged yesterday with obtaining money or property by confidence game in a football dart game at the Arizona State Fair, police reported. The charges were filed against Robert Barnard, 74, of Los Angeles, and Vaughn Land, 38, of the Copa Inn, 2834 E. Van Buren, before Northwest Precinct Justice of the Peace Marion Reno. Police arrested the two men Sunday after they witnessed the operation of the game. The players, police said, attempted to score "100 yards" by throwing darts at a numbered board. Accomplishing this, officers said, the players were told they would win a portable television set. The odds of gaining the 100 yards on the board, police said, were impossible. The game was confiscated by officers under a city ordinance prohibiting frauds or lotteries. SCOTTSDALE - The City Council last night voted an eventual increase in payment to the Salt River Indian Reservation for use of reservation property for a sanitary landfill. The council voted to extend the present contract that calls for payment of ,5 cents per cubic yard of refuse delivered to the landfill.

At 19th Avenue and Buckeye Road, Brockman and one of his friends started a fight with the driver of another car. During the fight, a third car drove up; four shots were fired from within it, three going into Brockman's back; and then the car sped off. Brockman died in an ambulance. Police so far have no suspect. They have requested that bystanders who informed a policeman at 17th Avenue and Buckeye Road of the shooting come forward with information, if they have any. "Even here, at our home, we tried to get him to take a drink, but he never would," Deana Ornelas, wife of the club president, repeated last Ruling asked on obscenity The Maricopa County attorney's office is expected to file today a request for a court hearing to determine whether or not a controversial Swedish motion picture now playing in Phoenix is obscene.

Then Ray Vela, 21, of 1007 S. 19th Ave., who rode with Brockman that night, entered the meeting and corroborated the police account. He told how, at the barbecue, Brockinan had suddenly switched from the straight Pepsi he had been drinking for eight months to straight vodka, and then to mixed drinks. "He had a lot of trouble with his wife being in the hospital," Vela said, "And he couldn't take care of his little girl by himself. He just wanted to get rid of it that night." As Vela told them what they didn't want to know, the club members fell silent. The trim men with handsome wives sat somberly in the Ornlas' tidy little den. As they accepted the fact that it really had happened, that Brockman had been drinking, that the police were correct in their account, their attention turned from the individual who was gone to the Phoenix girl dies of bums An' 8-year-old Phoenix girl died last night of burns she suffered when her dress caught fire Oct. 20, police reported.

"John Brockriian was my student. He made his first jump Oct. 12," Ornelas, one of the club's six licensed jumpmasters, had said at the meeting's veiy start. At the end, Gary Fuller, a medical student at Arizona State University; Courtney Varner, the lawyer who wons the club's plane; Ornelas, an assembly line inspector, and the others talked about the club's varied aspects. They stressed that it wasn't like a Hell's Angels motorcycle club; they talked about parachuting standards and meets with other clubs, and they sadly pointed out that Brockman's was the first death in the club's seven- year history. Someone mentioned the new patches the club members had ordered. "When did we get them?" "Saturday," Ornelas said. "Just in time for him to put .his on."
