Californian convicted of burglary, rape try A California man has been convicted in Superior Court of burglary and of attempting to rape a 40-year-old south Phoer nix woman.

Gas stations found easing fuel limits TUCSON (AP) - Arizona's service stations appear to be easing off the restricted hours and gasoline rationing, the Arizona Automobile Association reported Friday. The AAA said its weekly survey of ..gasoline stations showed a 7 per cent decrease . both in the number limiting hours and in the number limiting customers to 10 gallons. It said 53 per cent of the stations checked still were limiting hours this week, and 14 per cent were limiting the purchase amount. By area, northern Arizona stations were not limiting purchase amounts, while 35 per cent were limiting hours. The Sedona area was called the state's most critical, because most stations there are nearly out of gasoline with shipments still several days off. i In .southern Arizona, half the stations were limiting hours, while 14 per cent were limiting purchase. In the Phoenix area, all stations surveyed had limited hours, with 10 per cent limiting purchase. Pima holds teen accused in office iire TUCSON (AP) -- A 17- year-old Tucson boy was or-i dered detained in the Pima County Juvenile Court Center Friday after he was arrested in connection with the $540,000 fire that destroyed part of the county administration building. Juvenile Court Judge John P. Collins ordered the youth held in the court center until the case is decided or he is transferred to Superior Court for trial as an adult. Collins postponed setting a date for a r preliminary hearing to determine if the boy should be tried as an adult. Collins said the youth admitted setting the fire that swept through the fourth floor of the 11-story building last Monday, severly damaging 950 of the county's 1,396 voting machines. The youth was arrested Wednesday after an investigation by the sheriff's office, fire department and county attorney's office placed him near the site of the fire at pbout the time it started. According to testimony at his trial, which began Thurs-. day, Parker met the south Phoenix woman and her 23- year-old niece at on Van Buren and later accompanied them to their mobile home with a male friend of the older woman. Parker then tried to force his attentions on the niece, testimony indicated, but she ran to another part of the mobile home and Parker left. However, according to testi- ; mony, he later returned and broke into the home. The. older woman said she heard Parker trying to break in and called police. Parker got a butcher knife from the kitchen, she said, and forced her to disrobe, but she fought him off. He then took about $40 from her purse, testimony indicated. At this point, police arrived and arrested him. Town makes radio deal with sheriff . -Marieopa County supervisors agreed Friday to provide radio communication through the sheriff's department for 'the Town of Paradise Valley marshal's office. In exchange, the marshal's office has agreed to patrol 3 square miles of county area and 6 miles of road in or next to the town. The Town of Paradise Valley previously paid $10,836 annually for the communications service, according to Marshal Ron Dalrymple. Paradise Valley patrol cars are radio equipped, but the marshal's office does not operate its own' communications center. Included in the areas to be patrolled,- by the marshal's office are Clearwater Hills, Camelback Inn, Mountain Shadows, and the Casa Blanca Inn property. Dalrymple iaid Friday that all the a|eas ; to be patrolled are easily accessible by the marshal's; force. The , t 8heriff's : ; department has had one patrol car available to answer calls in the county ar$as between Para- Valley and Carefree. Last week a spokesman for the , sheriff 's department said the patrol "beats" are being realigned. The new agreement is a part of that process, according to sheriff's deputies. ; UPLIFTING IMAGE: Women's Wear Daily reports that teen bras, or "trainer/ bras" as they are sometimes" called, are out to update their "little girl" image.
