» B Candidates tell needs of Phoenix Total community response bility is the only solution to the city's problems, according to J. R. "Bill" Williams, Citizens Ticket candidate for City Council. Taxpayers pay Goldberg testifies on slock dealings with bank Council Roundup 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 Com- - munity Center, 51st Avenue and Campbell, was Gary Peter Klahr, independent candidate for City Council. j 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.

Hazelwood, Williams cited two specific problems : respect for kw by young people and the spiraling cost of government due to the pressures of .inflation. tion. 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.

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 fo its reputation around the country." Persons around the country ask him why Phoenix is the fastest growing in the nation, why its economic factors are so favorable and why everyone 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. "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 av- iode the partisan government that subjects a city to "bossism, political favoritism." Justice of peace named in Pima , .TUCSON (AP) — A. Bates Butler, chief criminal investigator for the Pima County attorney's office, yesterday was named justice of the peace for a new justice : court precinct. Pima County Supervisors Board Chairman Thomas Jay said the appointment of Butler, a ; former FBI agent, would be effective immediately. Butler will sit in a court vacated by Clark Johnson who was removed from the post after he was ill for several months and did not appear at his bench.' 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 $418,536. 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. More about Brainstorm Continued from Page 23 In the afternoon, the groups turned to their individual tasks. The one dealing with planning, and how to achieve the cooperation of all public agencies and citizen groups, found more obstacles than encouragement in its path. It listed these major "restraints" working against adequate planning: — Communication barriers. — The difficulty of actively involving all interested parties. — Competing or conflicting interests. — Resistance to and suspicion of change. — The skepticism of people who feel they have been "left out" in the past. — Lack of agreement on priorities. On the positive side, it was noted that most people view planning favorably, at least as an abstract ideal; some agencies already have cooper- a ted successfully; more knowledge and information are available than ever to make adequate planning possible. Then the group began to move toward the central focus of the conference: education. Its potential for "creating attitudes among people," for fulfilling the individual and improving society, were regarded by many participants as one of the major hopes for the future. FRANCE WANTS TALKS..

Congress group passes germ-gas warfare bill WASHINGTON (UPI) Compromise legislation restricting the transportation, storage and testing of chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents was approved yesterday by a Senate-House conference. The measure, a part of the 1969 Defense Procurement Bill, was" considerably less extensive than the anti-CBW amendment which passed the Senate in September. But it represented the first controls ever imposed by Congress on deadly germ and gas warfare agents.

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 directors' meetings. In December 1966, Goldberg said, he signed 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 was 1 involved in divorce proceed- ' ings early last year, and Romley, as Mrs. Goldberg's attorney, subpeonaed certain documents, including the two checks. R o m 1 e y 's early cross- examination consisted mainly of Goldberg's background, out Goldberg is expected to be on the stand all day today for extensive cross- examination.
