1 REPUBLIC KLFUBLIG CITY MAIL Si; 4 >' By Ralph Dunagtn Belli plans [lawsuit for |lrs. Judd Central Arizona Bureau .Belli, - Melvin M, defense attorney for Ruth Judd, said yes- Iferday he will file a court suit Challenging the validity of the Board of Pardons Paroles' refusal last to recommend Mrs. Sfiidd's freedom from Arizona jSitate Prison. »;' Contacted at his office in San Francisco, Belli said the pbard's decision "was a .shock to me, just as it must have been to all of Arizona." i ' "I think the board was born too late," he said. "They should have been born at the time of the Inquisition and the Star Chamber period." '•". He termed the board action ''utterly unbelievable." : "There was uncontradictory .testimony that Mrs. Judd has a cardiac condition, there was no opposition, nor no ad- Verse claim by the state, and she was involved in no prob- ; lem in California," Belli de- glared. i; Belli said he "didn't know yet" whether legal action ] would be taken in federal dis- jtrict court or in the Arizona f Supreme Court. | •.'' "It is fortunate that the ; board issued a written re* .view," he said. "Had they not filled an opinion, we might not j;have been able to go after j them." |T "For one thing, her parole | hearing was opened with a Iprayer, which is unconstitutional," he said. £-; v >' Belli's allusion to the pray- * • » • Dick Smith ]Ye W law not problem Santa Fe official, state argue rail tax figures brought raised eyebrows |from parole officials. $$ When he spoke at the Oct. &27 hearing for Mrs. Judd, I'Belli complimented the pa- f role board and said, "I am ^impressed that you open your Ifjjneetings with a prayer." fv Parole board director Wil- Iliam Drew said, "We always | open each session with a prayer." ' ;'•'?' : ':- : #*Atty. Gen. Gary Nelson jTsaid he knew of "no case fall yolving a criminal situation ^which would allow any cred- *ence" to a challenge of the * board's opening ritual. £•* "The Supreme Court opens , £its own sessions with prayer," *r he said COSMOS 308 LAUNCHED || MOSCOW (AP) - The So£ viqt Union yesterday launched | No. 308 in its Cosmos series | of unmanned earth satellites. Total taxes on Arizona railroads are not excessive when their business growth and taxes in other states are considered, state lawyers argued yesterday. A Santa Fe official, however, told another story. He said his railroad lost a multimillion - dollar coal hauling contract because high taxes forced its rates too high. The testimony was presented on the second day of a crucial tax' suit being heard without a jury by Superior Court Judge William Gooding. The railroads are attacking the .state's entire property tax reform, adopted in December 1967, which pegs their assessment at .60 per cent of full value, compared with 18 per cent for homes and .agricultural land, 25 per cent for business and 40 per cent for utilities. The main witness yesterday, was Lawrence Cena, Chicago, the Santa Fe's vice president for operations. Under questioning by Philip Von Ammon, Santa Fe's lawyer here, he testified that the railroad's hauling rate is the single most important factor in ' meeting strong competition from cars, trucks, buses, airlines, corporate fleets and pipelines. "Can you , shift any increase in your tax burden to the customers?" Von Ammon asked. "No, you cannot," Cena replied. "You price yourself out of the market." He said that the railroads tried to get a contract to haul coal from a $100 million -deposit at Black Mesa in north- eastern Arizona to a planned steam-fired power plant on the Colorado River in Nevada, just north of Bullhead City. But Cena said the railroad couldn't compete pricewise with a pipeline which is being built along the Santa Fe lines and will carry the pulverized coal in liquid form. Under cross - examination by Robert 0. Lesher, special counsel to the state attorney general's office, Cena conceded that the Santa Fe's nationwide business has increased from $226 million in 1930 to $673 million last year. The number of ton-miles for his railroad tripled in that time, he testified, and the Arizona dollar volume went from $17.5 milllion to $79.5 million. Lesher then turned to a crayon board to demonstrate that nationwide Santa Fe paid 4.1 per cent of its gross revenue in taxes last year, while the comparable Arizona figure was 4.9 per cent. The state's lawyers brought out that, despite inflation, tax assessments on Arizona railroads have dropped from $110 million in 1930 to $103 million this year. to executive post at bank Dick Smith, chairman of the Coliseum and Exposition Center Board and former state manager for Fox Theaters, has joined the executive staff of the First National Bank of Arizona, the bank's president, Robert D. Williams, said yesterday. Smith, 62, will coordinate a statewide community relations program for the bank, said Williams, adding, "We are proud to have a man of man of the board, said, "he Smith's stature to head this up." Sherman Hazeltine, chair- brings a lifetime of community awareness and service Which we know will be a real asset to us in our statewide activities." Smith, chairman of the Phoenix Charter Government Committee, said he is eager to begin work Monday. "They are giving me a job I will love, dealing with civic projects," he said. "It's right down my alley." A manager in the theater chain for 37 years, Smith caused a considerable controversy Sept. 23 when he resigned after the chain booked into the Vista Theater a Swedish film that Smith charged was "pornographic." A former vice mayor of the city, Smith has been an active member for many years in local and state civic affairs. He has been involved in Charter Government for 15 years, serving as chairman of the campaign and nominating committees before being named general chairman this year. iLining of reservoir delayed /> * ..• ™ •.,;•; ..

From midnight Friday until Monday morning, spokesmen for the Sheriff's office and the police department reported yesterday, 23 of 26 drivers arrested for driving while intoxicated agreed to take a police-administered breath analysis test to determine the alcohol content Of their blood. The new law provides that a suspected driver must consent to the police test, on pain of having his license suspended for six months. Such will be the fate of the three drivers who refused the test. Of the 23 who agreed, not one asked for a second privately administered blood test, to which the drunken driver is entitled under the new law. Observers had feared that tiite second test would cause confusing legal and medical problems, as when a driver demanded to, be taken to his own physician or when a physician refused to visit a jail in the middle of the night or when a hospital refused to administer the test for fear of an eventual court case. The optional test portion of the law remained unexercised in the Valley area last night, spokesmen for both agencies said. All suspected drunken drivers are being advised of their rights, they added. A spokesman for the Arizona Highway Patrol asked for more time before releasing statistics from his agency. He did say that after the law's first weekend there seemed to have been no trouble.
