KtcuBi.il CITY CHASER Ox Arizona Republic Wed., Nov. 5, Republicans victorious in Tucson TUCSON (AP) - All three Republican City Council candidates swept to victory over their Democratic incumbents last night. Michael B o r o z a defeated Kirk Storch, on the council since 1962 and vice mayor, by a vote of 18,092 to 14,385. RAY CASTILLO defeated Rudy Castro by a vote of 18,141 to 14,227 in the ward 5 race. In the closest contest, in ward 6, attorney Robert Royal won over John Steger, 17,024 to 15,462. When the Republicans are sworn in on Dec. 1 they will hold five of the six seats on the council. Democrats have held control since November 1965, when they won three seats on the council, then presided over by Republican Mayor Lew Davis. Elected to four-year terms, the winners will join two other Republicans on the council, Dr. Conrad Joyner and William Ruck, each with two years left to serve. The lone Democrat on the council now is Richard Kennedy. James N. Corbett Jr., a Democrat, is mayor. A campaign pledge of the Republican candidates was that they would install Joyner, a University of Arizona government professor, as vice mayor. AS THE election drew near, it appeared its outcome would be decided largely on the promised leadership of Joyner and the record of Corbett and his administration.

Durham sentencing gets postponement The % sentencing of Arlie Frank Durham, 26, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the March 8 .slaying of a member of a rival motorcycle gang, has been postponed until Nov. 24.

Hearing set to find if film obscene Deputies not allowed to accept theater jobs A hearing was set yesterday for Nov. 13 to determine if a controversial Swedish motion picture now playing in Phoenix is obscene. The hearing will be held before Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Paul W. LaPrade. The film, "I Am Curious (Yellow)," has been the center of controversy since it first was imported from Sweden last year. A New York jury at that time held the film was obscene, but a U. S. Appeals Court in New York ruled that the film was not obscene and ordered the federal government to permit its importation. The movie, in Swedish with English subtitles, includes graphic portrayal of sex acts. The film was seized here last week by Sheriff John Mummert, but LaPrade ruled that the search warrant used to obtain the film had been issued illegally and ordered Mummert to return it. The request for the hearing is the legal method of testing the film, LaPrade said. Uncut marijuana Health board approves immunization fee found on desert Central Arizona Bureau , The Maricopa County Health Board yesterday approved, without protest, a proposal to charge a $1 fee for. immunization shots now administered free by the county. • This, and other recommendations okayed by the board, will be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors for final action. Other items adopted'by the •board at a public hearing at which no citizens appeared included charging $2 for international health cards and raising from $2 to $2.50 the fee assessed for health certificates required by food handlers. :: ; Still to be exempted from the immunization fee requirement are children receiving shots in school programs, and indigents. The board also proposed that teachers be required to pay the same fee charged others for health certificates. Teachers now receive free certificates. A public hearing on the question of including teachers among the fee payers was scheduled !for 9:30 a.m. Dec. 5. Recommendations adopted by the health board will be forwarded to the county Board of Supervisors. FLORENCE — Discovery of 38 pounds of marijuana on the desert 10 miles southeast of here was announced Monday by Final County Sheriff Coy DeArman. DeArman said the uncut marijuana, wrapped in freezer paper in two-pound cubes, was found Sunday by hunters. Officers said they believed the narcotic may have been dropped by an airplane. A dispute over alleged motion picture film obscenity has led to an order that Maricopa County sheriff's deputies may not accept "moonlighting" jobs as security guards in theaters, Sheriff John Mummert said last night. Many deputies have been accepting such employment on their own time, keeping order in drive-in theaters. "We felt that we had to do this," said Sheriff Mummert, "because we have no control over what type of films the theaters show. It would be awkward if we raided a thea- Iiijunction asked in strike at GE NEW YORK (UPI) - The 90,000-member International Union of Electrical Workers (IUE) has asked the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to seek a temporary injunction barring the General Electric Co. from continuing "unlawful conduct which has been responsible for the present nationwide strike." Thirteen unions including the IUE went on strike against the giant electrical firm Oct. 27, affecting some 147,000 workers. The unions claimed they were unable to negotiate on a GE wage and fringe benefits offer because it was presented to them on a take-it-or-leave-it basis, a bargaining technique known as boulwarism because it was used by a former GE vice' president, Lemuel Boulware. NOMINATION OKAYED WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Judiciary committee has approved the nomination of Paul J. O'Neill, Miami businessman, to be a member of the Subversive Activities Control Board. ter and found some of our own deputies working there." (For several weeks, Phoenix police officers have been urged by department directive not to accept off-duty work at theaters while they are showing movies with "X" ratings.) Last week, Mummert confiscated the print of a controversial Swedish motion picture film, "I Am Curious (Yellow)," showing at the Vista Theater, 215 N. Central. Superior Court Judge Paul W. LaPrade later ordered the .sheriff to return the print on grounds that the search warrant with which it was seized had been issued illegally. But he noted that his ruling "has no bearing on whether it (the film) is obscene." A hearing on Whether the film is obscene, and thus a legitimate target of such raids, is scheduled to be held in LaPrade's court Nov. 13. If that ruling goes against him, Mummert said, he'll wait until the next such film is showing in the county, one that can be expected to be shown a number of times, and then he'll try again. "We want something that can go all the way up to the top, and reverse this whole trend," said Mummert. "Every time someone new is appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court the outlook gets brighter," the sheriff added. "I Am Curious (Yellow)" was being shown at an indoor theater, and almost sail deputies moonlighting at theaters were doing so at drive - in theaters, said the sheriff. "But such films are also -shown at drive - ins," said Mummert. "And, if anything, that's'worse. At a drive - in, there's no way for anyone to control what any youngster driving by might see."
