Arizona again rejects proposal for golfathon The Arizona Highway Commission again yesterday rejected as unsafe a proposal from Tee-Views golf magazine for a golfathon along the highway from Phoenix to San Diego. The Phoenix magazine offered to sponsor the golfathon to publicize Arizona as a recreation area. However, the commission said it had studied the request thoroughly and received unanimous recommendations to refuse the proposal. The commission said it appreciated the magazine's efforts, but "we are not willing to risk one human life, however inadvertently, to achieve this or any other material end." In other business, the commission awarded construction contracts for seven state highway improvement projects worth a total of $1.9 million. It also bought $151,000 worth of radio equipment from Motorola to complete the conversion to modem equipment in highway department districts 1 and 5. The purchase leaves only districts 4 and 7 to be re-equipped.

The University of Arizona plans to expand its cooperative education program between the mining industry and the colleges of mines and engineering this fall, Prof. Jay Dotson announced here yesterday. Dotson, professor of mining and geological engineering at UofA, said students enrolled in the five - year program work alternate semesters and during the summer in Arizona mines. They are paid full wages by the mines for whatever jobs they perform. Every other semester is spent studying in UofA engineering and earch science classes, he said. "This is a real fine oppor- tunity," Dotson said. "Students in the program get two years of training in all aspects of the mining industry and a chance to pretty much pay their own way through college." The program, which began on a small scale in 1961, has about 55 students enrolled. Fifteen mining companies participate. CENTENARIAN DIES SOUTH GATE, Calif.
