Rakestraw inks with Falcons about District 4 rabbit stew Continued from Page 1 trict will consume us next time," one Republican official said. "It will be a knockdown, dragout fight!" But before either political party can make the necessary rabbit stew next year, they will have to catch the rabbit this Nov. 3; that is, gain, or retain, control of the legislature that will draw the new lines. — Carve 437,000 persons out of eastern Maricopa County and give them to Rhodes for his 1st District. — Give Tucson's Rep. Morris K. Udall, D-Ariz., 428,790 by combining Cochise, Santa Cruz, Greenlee and Pima counties for the 2nd District. Republicans control the Senate 17 to 13 and the House 34 to 26, so a change in a few seats this fall could be decisive. Rep. John Rhodes, R-Ariz., a nine- term veteran, reportedly is the major Influence on how the lines will be drawn to reshuffle his 1st District, which lies entirely in Maricopa County. Rhodes reportedly wants no east-west divisions. He believes the present line simply should be shifted eastward on a north-south bias. An informed source said the Arizona congressional delegation generally would be happy with the following plan: Unexpected fee charged NUERNBERG, Germany — (AP) — Nuernberg airport has billed the Czechoslovak national airline $82 for the landing and handling of one of its airliners, hijacked to this West German city June 8 by eight young Czechoslovaks, an airport spokesman said. — Allot Rep. Sam Steiger, R-Ariz., 437,500 persons in the 3rd District by combining Mohave, Yavapai, Coconino and Yuma Counties with western Maricopa County. — Create the new 4th District by grouping Graham, Gila, Navajo, Pinal, and Apache and whatever additional population is needed from the core of Maricopa County. This alignment would result, of course, in Maricopa County dominating three of the congressional districts. But that's where the people are and there doesn't seem to be any alternative. If the Democrats gain control of the legislature, or find themselves in a good bargaining position, it is expected they will hold still for a plan giving the Re* publicans a stranglehold on the 1st and 3rd districts. The Democrats would continue to control the 2nd District and divide the 4th so it, too, would fall within their purview. The 4th would, if it favored the Democrats, include Graham, Gila, Yuma, Pinal and then draw whatever additional population was needed from the Democratic stronghold of South Phoenix. But before one makes a rabbit stew ATLANTA (AP) Rakestraw, former Chicago Bears quarterback, has signed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League and will report to the club's training camp in July. The Falcons signed Rakestraw, a former University of Georgia star, as a free agent last season but a technicality voided it and Rakestraw played minor league football. Rakestraw spent five years with the Bears, but saw little action.

He said the estimated population of the county in 1970 will be 1.5 million and there should be 59 judges to accommodate that many persons. Hardy said that if four judgships were created immediately an additional judge were added each year there will only be 38 judges by 1980. "We still would be 12 short," he said. The letter said that Juvenile Judge William Holohan "reports that the workload of the Juvenile Court is presently too much for one judge and that a number of bills passed by the last legislature . . . will tend to increase the workload further." The letter also stated that probate caseloads have increased 18 per cent during 1969 and that another probate judge is needed to handle the growing number of cases. "During the past three years," the let- ter continued, "active caseloads of the trial divisions has been fairly stable. "A decrease in the civil active list has been offset by the increase in criminal cases. However, the number of civil cases seems to be on the increase and there is no leveling off whatever of the criminal cases."
