CITY 16 the Arizona Republic QRJN AND BEAR IT •EO , Wed., Nov. 5, 1969 George Lichty . *,, 2 Latin jets hijacked to Havana United Press International Two Latin American commercial airliners with a total of 133 persons aboard were hijacked in flight at gunpoint yesterday and ordered to Cuba. The first hijack occurred over Central America when two gunmen held up a Nicaraguan Lanica jetliner with 32 persons aboard on a Miami- to-Mexico City flight. The second was a Brazilian Varig jetliner with 101 on aboard, seized over the Andes on a flight between Buenos Aires and Santiago, Chile. The flight had originated in Rio de Janeiro. The Nicaraguan aircraft, a British-built BAC111, landed at Havana in the afternoon, after an earlier landing on Grand Cayman Island in the Bahamas, 250 miles south of Cuba, where all but four of the seven crewmen and the two hijackers were disembarked. 0 The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said one of the hijackers narrowly escaped arrest at the tiny Caribbean island when he stepped off the plane to supervise the disembarcation. Police on Grand Cayman seized the hijacker but released him when his companion, still aboard the plane, threatened to shoot the crew. Airport police in Santiago said six hijackers, including a woman, were involved in the seizure of the Brazilian jet. They based their report on information supplied by a couple allowed by the hijackers "to disembark in Santiago because the woman was pregnant. The Brazilian aircraft was a Boeing 707. Its pilot planned to overfly Lima, Peru, to reach Havana on a normal flight pattern. Varig officials said the jet carried 12 crewmen and 87 p assengers after the couple—identified as Argentines Mr. and Mrs. Mauricio Menichelli—disembarked. The two hijackings raised to 53 the number this year in the Western Hemisphere, and -to 23 the number of Latin' American aircraft hijacked.

School boards urged to hike plant usage By JACK KOWALEC Arraignment of Ahee set next Wednesday TUCSON (AP) — The Superior Court arraignment of former state Sen. Sol Ahee, a Tucson Democrat, has been continued until next Wednesday! Ahee is accused of grand theft. The charges involve a $24,000 loan Ahee allegedly took out on an insurance policy for a Tucson nightclub. He is free on $1,000 bond. A program to open schools during evenings and in the summer for a variety of community uses can be accomplished at a minimal cost, the Arizona School Board Association was told last night. The Rev. Rex Sprink, newly elected member of the Glendale Union High School District Board, said such a program was inaugurated last year at Sahuaro School in the Washington Elementary District. "It can be done and done cheaply," Mr. Sprink told 110 persons attending the 12th annual county workshop of the ASBA at Sevilla School, 3801 W. Missouri. His comments came during a question-and-answer session following a panel discussion on a film, "To Touch a Child," produced by the Mott Foundation of Flint, Mich. "We ran the program all year on $50," he said, endorsing the community education development concept. "Many agencies just wanted a place to come. All of us who serve are volunteers from the community." The programs at the school he said, included a campers' clinic, father-son shop, mother- daughter program, baby-sitting class, Red Cross .program and several others. "I would urge every board member here that if he is petitioned by the community for the use of the schools, he should give them a chance," Mr. Sprink said. Tony Carrillo, associate coordinator of the Southwest Regional Center for Community School Development at Arizona State University, said 23 pilot projects in the Southwest were operating at a cost below $12,000. The panel questioned the cost of implementing such a program, stifling private business interests, disrupting family life and maintaining community interest. In general, however, the panel agreed more use could be made of school facilities throughout the year-. The panel consisted of Sen. William Huso, D-Navajo; Rep. Fred Koory, R-Maricopa; Richard Harris, Maricopa County School superintendent; Ed Fitzhugh, editor of The Phoenix Gazette, and Victor Loman, principal of the Moon Valley High School.. Group plans child care center help A group trying to keep child day-care centers open in Arizona last night agreed upon a two-point program, Dr. John S. Kruglick said. Dr. Kruglick, who headed an earlier drive for funds to aid the Allenville Center, said the goals are: — To raise ?50,000 for matching with $150,000 in federal funds to operate the centers for the next year. — To work with the State Welfare Department in order to obtain the matching federal money. On the Allenville center specifically, Dr. Kruglick said there is enough money to operate through November. There is no money for December he said, but the center may receive $2,500 remaining from funds donated by the public for construction of a new water system at Allenville. To raise the $50,000, he said, the Arizona Day-Care Center Task Force is considering forming a Save-a-Child League. The league would seek donations of $1 per year from contributors. Dr. Kruglick said representatives of the task force will meet Nov. 12 in Nogales with the welfare board. He said the task force wants the welfare department to submit a proposal to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare to obtain 75 per cent matching funds. If the task force raises $50,000, HEW would ma'tch that with $150,000, he said.

Welfare suit based on court jurisdiction A lawsuit attacking state limits on the property that welfare applicants may own must be tried in Maricopa County if the Navajo Indian plaintiffs cannot show legal cause for their contention that they are entitled to trial in Coconino County. The State Welfare Department won this ruling yesterday from the Arizona Supreme Court, which gave the department and the Indians a total of 50 days to file further pleadings in their dispute over the department's contention that it can be sued only in the capital. The Indians, Mrs. Sally Tucson brings water to growing east area TUCSON (AP) - An additional 20 million gallons of water will be available next summer to a rapidly growing section of Tucson which has been seriously short of water, city officials said yesterday. The city water department called for bids yesterday on a new ground - storage reservoir to be built at the southeast corner of Kolb and Golf Links Road. Bids will be opened Dec. 3. Frank Brooks, city water director, said the fast growth on the far east side caused the area to run short on water. John Begay of Coconino County and Mrs. Roberta Blackgoat of Navajo County, are represented by Mrs. Sarah Barlow from lawyers working for the Revitalization of the Navajo People, Inc., at Window Rock. Mrs. Barlow told the Supreme Court that the $1,200 limit on personal property owned by welfare recipients is unconstitutional because it applies to all families whether they have 2 members or 15. She said her Indian clients were denied welfare benefits because they owned a stocked grazing allotment and a pickup truck. She acknowledged that their problem may not recur since the Welfare Department has relaxed its rules so the mortgaged portion of their property will not be counted against them for welfare eligibility purposes. But Mrs. Barlow maintained that they may be entitled to retroactive benefits denied them when the rules counted all their property against them. 3 TON AIR Complete Installed Connected to your existing electric service.
