l\ PENMS 1 Hi; Akatraz SAN FRANCISCO The Alcatraz Indians yesterday defended the firing of an arrow at a ferry last weekend, saying the boat had repeatedly come too close to the island's dock and its wake had slammed their own boat against pilings. "We asked the ferry people DEAL OFFERED MANILA (UPI) - Datu Mapantilan, leader of a gang of bandits in the Philippines southern frontier, has offered t o surrender on condition President Ferdinand E. Marcos grants him "amnesty, absolute pardon and full protection." defend arrow firing at ferry "Knives an' forks sure take all the FUN out of eatin'J" 3rd gun in fatal kidnap linked to Angela Davis United Press International SAN FRANCISCO - Amid speculation she was no longer in the country, ousted UCLA philosophy instructor Angela Davis was linked in published reports yesterday with another of the guns used in a bloody Marin County courtroom kidnaping. The San Francsico Examiner and the Los Angeles Herald Examiner said a 30-caliber carbine found in an escape van where a judge and three kidnapers were shot to death was bought by Miss Davis earlier this year. Marin County and state attorney general's investigators said previously two other guns used in the kidnaping and shootout near San Rafael were bought by the 26-year- old avowed Communist and black militant in 1968 and 1969. Although both Att. Gen. Thomas Lynch and Marin County Dist. Atty. Bruce Bales have said they would like to talk to Miss Davis, no warrant has been issued for her arrest. Lynch answered "no comment" yesterday when asked why. He said he had no idea where she was. Los Angeles television station KNXT said Miss Davis had "obtained a passport" and fled to Canada. Since passports are not required for travel by U.S. citizens in Canada, the station surmised she intended to move farther. Officials at the federal passport office in Los Angeles said they had no record of Miss Davis being there this year. Miss Davis was ousted as an acting assistant professor of philosophy by the UCLA regents this year. Wednesday, state and county officers confirmed that a 38-caliber Browning automatic pistol and another carbine bought in Los Angeles by Miss Davis in 1968 and 1969 were the ones used in the Shootout the Marin Civic Center Aug. 7. Judge Harold Haley, 65, Assistant Dist. Atty. Gary Thomas and three women jurors were kidnaped from Haley's courtroom at gunpoint during a trial of San Quentin convict John D. McClain, 37. Haley was shot to death with a shotgun strapped around his neck. Also killed were McClain, convict William Christmas, 27, and Jonathan P. Jackson, 17, identified as the outside accomplice who smuggled the guns into the courtroom. Miss Davis was scheduled to speak at a Balck Panther rally in the San Francisco Civic Center next Wednesday on behalf of three black Soledad Prison inmates accused of killing a white guard. Jackson was the brother of George Jackson, one of the Soledad defendants. Panther defense wins look at only one officer's notes United Press International NEW HAVEN, Conn.— A second attempt by the defense to obtain complete New Haven police surveillance records of Black Panther activities around the time Panther Alex Rackley was slain was denied yesterday by Superior Court Judge Harold M. Mulvey. Attorneys for Lonne McLucas, on trial in the slaying of Rackley, were given access, however, to notes taken by a New Haven police official in the "spot surveillance" of six Panthers, including McLucas. Nicholas Pastore, deputy chief inspector in charge of internal affairs, was directed by Mulvey to turn over his notes, which consisted of a single sheet of 8-by-ll inch paper. Pastore, the only witness summoned during the 90-minute morning session, was a sergeant in charge of crimi- nal intelligence when the surveillance took place. He said national Panther chairman Bobby G. Seale arrived in New Haven and was observed entering the apartment of Erica Huggins on Monday, May 19,1969, at 5:50 p.m. Seale and Miss Huggins are among seven other Panthers awaiting trial on charges of conspiring to kidnap and murder Rackley. The prosecution claims Rackley was tortured and killed because he was a suspected police informer, while the defense contends that key state witness, George Sams Jr., was the real informer and ordered Rackley killed to harass the Panthers. Sams and another prosecution witness, Warren Kimbro, have pleaded guilty to second degree murder. Pastore said he did not "tail" Seale, but made periodic checks to determine where he went in New Haven. Copter combs coast for missing girl OGUNQUIT, Maine (UPI) — An Army helicopter manned by Green Beret veterans of Vietnam combed the southern Maine coast yesterday for a faded maroon- colored car in which a brigadier g e n e r a 1 's 13-year-old daughter was believed kid- naped five days ago. HERO'S AWARD WASHINGTON (UPI) President Nixon Thursday presented the American Merchant Marine Seamanship Trophy to the widow of Richard D. Hughes of Gettysburg, Pa., in honor of Hughes' efforts to save the SS Badger State, an American freighter, when it caught fire and sank in the Pacific last He was lost at sea g U/fc fc//a.-/t j i-jjry. At the same time, state and local police methodically patrolled backwoods roads in the so-far fruitless search for the car or anyone who might have seen red-haired, freckle-faced Mary Olenchuk. A witness told police she saw a girl fitting Mary's description talking to a man in his mid-30s in a maroon car Sunday, about 200 yards from the Olenchuk summer home. Mary's bicycle was discovered nearby a short time later but there have been no other traces of her. The giH's father is Brig. Gen. Peter Olenchuk, commander of the Army Ammunitions Supply Agency in Joliet, 111. The Olenchuks, who have two other daughters, were spending the summer to stop this, we asked the Coast Guard to take action, and finally we said we wanted it stopped, and yet it continued," said John Trudell, one of the leaders of the band which has held the abandoned federal penitentiary since November. Trudell defended both the arrow fired at the ferry and the occasional throwing of rocks at boats. He said any rock throwing has been the result of obscene and derogatory remarks made by people in boats to Indians on the dock. The arrow was fired into the side of the boat from the dock. Trudell, 24, a Sioux from Santee, Neb., and one of the island's seven ruling council members, held a news conference at Fishermen's Wharf to announce a change in Indian demands concerning the relighting of the Alcatraz lighthouse. He said the island occupants have obtained a generator "and we now require only the return of our water." Trudell announced last week the Indians would prevent the Coast Guard from rest o r i n g the lighthouse and foghorn on the island until the federal government restored the island's power supply and water barge. "We don't want another Wounded Knee, My Lai or Kent State here," he said, "but we will not back down when we're right. We've had to take our lumps before." 70 RENAULT $ 1725 DELIVERED IN PHOENIX LtiCI IMIUMI CITY Phoenix, Sat., Aug. 15,1970 MAIL The Arizona Republic 11 ASSORTED "795 LIGHT FIXTURES I <"> CABINET HARDWARE 47 e 125 New Elegance Fop Every Room In Your Home! fa I Ask About Your FREE HOME INSPECTION AND Don't Forget Our LABOR DAY SALE Coming Up AUG. 28th & 29th Qliddan Paint ft Decorating Center 2340 West Bethany Home 277-5418; Mon.-Fri. 8-5, Sat. 9-3 Find it easily in the classified section.
