REPUBtIG Crash injuries iatal Candidates to three Valleyites tell needs of Phoenix Council Roundup Total community responsibility is the only solution to the city's problems, according to J, R. "Bill" Williams, Citizens Ticket candidate for City Council. Speaking at a meeting Monday a t the home of Mf. and Mrs. Henry Yoshii of 3707 W. Hazelwood, Williams cited two specific problems: respect for law by young people and the spiraling cost of government due to the pressures of inflation. The law problem includes drug abuse and juvenile crime and they require' farsighted programs, not merely temporary stopgap measures, Williams said. About inflation, he said, "We here in Phoenix can't avoid the results of national inflation but we can lessen its effects by increased continuing efficiency without any , reduction in the services our Phoenix citizens now receive and expect." * * * Air and noise pollution and the need for a mass transportation system were linked together yesterday by an independent candidate for City Council, Mrs. Charlotte Lockwood Cox. "We must not close our eyes to the worsening air and sound pollution problem," Mrs. Cox said at a coffee at the home of Mrs. Fred Kallof, 3102 Manor Drive, W. One of the biggest pollution offenders, she said, is "our internal combustion, vehicle. This serious pollution problem gives added emphasis to the urgency for the creation of an adequate mass transportation system for Phoenix." "Now the need is more than economic — it is tied in with our very survival," she said. * * * Also addressing himself to problems of mass transit last night at an all-candidates rally at the Maryvale Park Community Center, 51st Avenue and Campbell, was Gary Peter Klahr, independent candidate for City Council. Minibuses are the solution, said Klahr, adding that the city could either buy the buses directly or subsidize their use by a private carrier, depending on which would be more economical. "I am quite reluctant to have the city go into the bus business again," Klahr said, "Nevertheless, it seems to be the consensus of many people that something must be done to increase the availability of mass transit." While most Phoenix citizens have their own cars, "there are substantial numbers of elderly citizens, children, students and economically deprived residents of the Inner City who need mass transit. "The city can no longer afford to ignore the needs of those residents, even though they are a minority," Klahr said. Three Valley residents died yesterday of injuries suffered in traffic accidents, the Arizona Department of Public Safety reported. They were identified as Hershel Fox, 63, of 741 W. Pierce; James McLarney, 38, of 1062 W. Fifth St., Tempe; and Mrs. Florence Gay, 65, of 2347 E. South Mountain Ave. 623 traffic deaths in 1969 552 died same period 1968 Scottsdale police said Fox died when the pickup truck he was driving collided head-on with a car driven by Edward J. Messner, 22, of 1939 W. Berridge Lane, on Scottsdale Road north of Thunderbird. Police said Messner and his wife, Patricia, 21, who is five months pregnant, suffered cuts and abrasions. Patrolman Larry Rives said that Fox, driving south, was attempting to pass a car in a no-passing zone and was over the yellow line when the Barry gives support to CGC slate U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater, who worked on the Charter Government Committee from its inception in the late 1940s until he won national office, has revealed his support to the Charter Ticket in Tuesday's city primary election. Goldwater, former Charter vice mayor of Phoenix, said in a letter to Charter mayor candidate John Driggs, "I am extremely proud of what this type of government has meant to Phoenix and what it has done for its reputation around the country." Persons around the country ask him why Phoenix is the fastest growing city m the nation, why its economic factors are so favorable and why evr eryone wants to move here, he noted. "Of course," he said, "I have to give the climate a large part of the credit, as I have to give the wonderful people who live in Phoenix a large part of it.too. I "But I also have to give the long and successful tenure, of Charter Government as the basic reason for improvement, and the reason that Phoenix has been able to present such a clean, fine picture politically among the cities of America whose records never tend that way." Goldwater said he was happy to learn of Driggs' candidacy because "I know you as an individual and I know of your interest in and love for Phoenix. I also know those who are running with you and that they share this same concern. Charter Government must be continued, he added, to avoid the partisan government that subjects a city to "bossism, political favortism." truck and the northbound Messner auto came together. Patrolmen said McLarney was injured yesterday in a two-car crash on the Maricopa Freeway near Seventh St. Investigators said he was a passenger in a car driven by Celima Somoza, 25, of 601 W. Apache Blvd., Tempe, when a rear tire on the westbound vehicle blew out, causing it to spin into the path of a westbound station wagon driven by Janice Gray, 430 S. Esquire Way, Mesa. McLarney and another passenger in the Somoza auto, Beckey Perrault, 26, of 4801 S. 20th Place, Phoenix, were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital by AMES helicopter. McLarney died of his injuries three hours later. Mrs. Gray was injured Sunday, patrolmen said, when a car driven by her husband, Charles, 73, westbound on U.S. 60, made a left turn at lllth Avenue into the path of an eastbound pickup truck driven by Calvin Well of 101 N. 13th Ave. Mrs. Gay died yesterday in Northwest Hospital, where Charles Gay was still under treatment last night. More about Jury fees Continued from Page 23 that judges should not allow anyone to finish a court trial without paying the jury fees. "I think those who use the courts should be the ones to pay for them," Palmer said. Palmer noted that it was only two years ago, when he took office, that the county began collecting interest—as required by law—on jury fees. "But," he said, "if the judge fails to assess the jury cost then we can't assess any interest on the funds either." Jury costs on all criminal cases are picked up by taxpayers. Criminal cases accounted for 48.06 per cent of all trials during the 12-month period. Total cost for juries alone during that period was $416,536. Of that, criminal juries cost $186,500 and civil juries cost $230,036, of which $124,766 was legally assessable. Of the total assessable figure, the county has recovered only $61,662.

"Monday night a boy and a girl from Arizona State University spent $23, Later they demanded their money back. The girl got her money, but the boy didn't," Station said. Sunday Phoenix police closed down a football dart game at the fair and the following day charged two men with operating a confidence game. Charged in the con game operation were Robert Barnard, 74, of Los Angeles, and Vaughn Lang, 38, of the Copa Inn, 2834 E. Van Buren. Station said no charges would be filed against the three operators who were ordered closed yesterday. Bonanno lawyer gets pleas time TUCSON (AP) - The attorney for Mafia figure Joseph Bonanno Sr, has been given two weeks In which to file motions attacking a federal grand jury's indictment against him, Bpnanno, his bodyguard, Peter N o t a r o and Charles "Batts" Battaglia were all charged by the grand jury last month with conspiracy in an alleged plot to free Battaglia frqm Leavenworth federal prison.

Russ cosmonauts happy over visit NEW YORK (AP) - Two Russian cosmonauts took off for home yesterday after jovially praising American hospitality, New York City and U.S. astronauts, whom they found "very much like our own and very remarkable fellows." Konstantin P. Feoktistov, who was the scientist member of a three-man Voshkod space flight in October 1964, said jn a Kennedy Airport interview that what he liked about American astronauts was their "sincerity and hopeful approach to life." "Friendship," said his fellow cosmonaut, Maj. Gen. Georgi T. Beregovoy, "is a force which will help the world to conquer space." DUE TO WCK OF FOOD * BULK IN YOUR DIET * Goldberg testifies on stock dealings with bank By JESUS A. BARKER Philip J. Goldberg completed his direct testimony in his $8.75 million suit against the Pioneer Bank yesterday by outlining how he had agreed to purchase $500,000 in stock, then an additional $100,000, and ended up with a note in his favor for $89,200 but no stock. Cross-examination of Goldberg by Elias Romley, attorney for the bank and a defendant in the suit as well, had barely started when the trial was recessed until today by visiting U.S. District Court Judge William D. Murray of Butte, Mont. Goldberg outlined his relationship with Allen Rosenberg, Pioneer Bank president, from the time of Goldberg's arrival in Phoenix in 1965 until his break with Rosenberg a year later. The former Scottsdale insurance executive said he had been made a member of the board of directors of First National Life Insurance Co. a month after he first met Rosenberg in September 1965. Rosenberg also was a director of the firm. Two weeks after he was named a director, the board named Goldberg chairman and voted to pay him $300,000 cash for 15,000 shares of his Hamilton Life Insurance Co. of New York; he also exchanged 15,000 of Hamilton stock, for 60,000 shares of First National. This occurred after Goldberg had signed an agreement to purchase $500,000' worth of Pioneer Bank stock. Goldberg said he was assured a 10-year financing program had been set up, but that he had been urged to sign a demand note of $500,000 while waiting for the finalizing of plans. In December 1965, said Goldberg, he was approached by Rosenberg and told he needed a $100,000 check because bank examiners were in town. He assured Goldberg the check would not be cashed. In January 1966, the check was returned, but Goldberg was told he should purchase an additional $100,000 in stock so he could qualify under the law as a director. Goldberg gave Rosenberg two $50,000 checks, made out to the Pioneer Bank. He testified that after continually inquiring about both his note and the stock certificates, he was repeatedly told that Jarril Kaplan, a member of Romley's firm, had not completed the legal work involved. Goldberg said his relationship with Rosenberg finally reached the point where Rosenberg resigned as director of First National Life and Goldberg stopped attending Pioneer Bank director s' meetings. In December 1966, Goldberg said, he sighed an agreement that removed him from the Pioneer Bank picture. He said in the agreement he would relinquish all future rights to Pioneer Bank stock. In return, he testified, he was given back his $500,000 demand note and a note payable in one year for $89,200. This represented his $100,000 given the bank in two checks, minus legal fees and other accounting costs. He instituted the present suit in February 1968, when he said he discovered that one of the $50,000 checks he had made out to the Pioneer Bank was endorsed payable to the savings account of Rosenberg, Kaplan and director Arnold Smith. Smith is now chairman of the board of Pioneer Bank. Goldberg said he did not See the checks until he wai : involved in divorce proceedings early last year, and; Romley, as Mrs. Goldberg's*' attorney, subpeonaed certaifr documents, including the twb ; checks. R o m 1 e y 's early cross-- < examination consisted mainly of Goldberg's background^ but Goldberg is expected t&*>. be on the stand all day today for extensive cross- *. examination. 4 FOR PEOPLE WHO CARE THE VILLAGE GREEN NURSING HOME 2932 N.
