Kti t ,,u.iU CITY 12-A The Arizona Republic *** ** B Phoenix, Srni., Ang. 18, 1970 FBI seeks Miss Davis in Alabama Associated Press SAN RAFAEL, Calif. Black militant Angela Davis, avowed Communist and former UCLA instructor, was sought in Alabama yesterday on warrants charging murder and kidnap in the Aug. 8 Shootout that killed a judge and three others. Federal fugitive warrants were issued late yesterday to go with the state charges after officials said she had not been found in a raid on a San Francisco home and informants reported she had been seen in Birmingham, Ala., yesterday. Assistant U.S. Atty. Jerrold Lader said he had filed the complaint on the basis of the state warrants issued earlier in Marin County, on the alleged purchase by Miss Davis of guns two days before the Shootout and on information by the informant that she had been seen in a Birmingham shopping center. Marin County Dist. Atty. Bruce Bales earlier had issued an all-points bulletin for Miss Davis. Miss Davis, 26, identified by police and news media as the purchaser of three guns used in the courthouse kidnapings, was charged with one count of murder in the judge's death and five counts of kidnap, Bales said. Similarly charged was Ruchell Magee, 31, San Quentin convict wounded in the shoot-out. Bales said Miss Davis was charged under California law holding that anyone who aids or abets in a major crime is equally guilty with the direct participants. Warrants against Miss Davis were issued on the eve of a funeral in Oakland yesterday for Jonathan Jackson, 17. Police say he smuggled weapons into a Marin County courtroom for the attempted escape of three San Quentin convicts. . Panthers salute coffins of two killed in San Rafael courtroom escape attempt Press James D. McClain, 37, and William Christmas, 27, also were killed. Services for Jackson and Christmas were held jointly In the crowded church. Bales said investigators had "a number of leads" on Miss Davis' whereabouts. In Friday night's raid, police found her sister, Fania Jordan of Los Angeles, but released her after questioning. The home raided was headquarters of defense activities for three black convicts accused of killing a white Soledad Prison guard last January. The Soledad Brothers, as they are called by militants organizing their legal defense, are awaiting trial at San Quentin. During the courtroom break, witnesses said Jackson shouted a demand that the Soledad prisoners be freed by 12:30 p.m., or within the hour. Bales said he understood four guns had been brought into the courtroom by Jackson. At least two guns had been purchased by Miss Davis, the office of California Atty. Gen Thomas C. Lynch said Wednesday.

Agricultural experts say a late spring and dry weather had spread the weed over an estimated 2.5 million acres. Advertisement Alfano was in "very grave" condition at Billings Hospital where he has received more than 100 pints of rare AB positive blood. Doctors said bullets struck his liver, an organ that normally helps cleanse blood, making it necessary to continue transfusions. The Thursday night gunfire began when bullets were fired from the once stylish Southmoor Hotel at an unmarked gang intelligence unit police car. The hotel, abandoned by its owners, has been taken over by street gangs. Twenty other persons, many of them members of the Black P Stone Nation, a coalition of about 50 street gangs, were arrested on a variety of charges after the incident. They have been charged with disorderly conduct, aggravated battery, resisting arrest, mob action, failure to register firearms and possession of marijuana. TERMITES - 6th of a Series. If your home is less than five years old, you probably have a "termite warranty." The mini mum FHA guaranty is for I yean. The builder is responsible for any termite treatment or damage for the first five years. Some builders give 10 year warranties. These warranties are include^ In the purchase price of the home and there are no further charges during the lifetime of the warranty. Treating is done by a termite firm at the time of construction. We've seen termites in buildings before construction was complete; we've seen buildings over 5U years old without a sign all termite jobs, termites first showed up in the 6th to 8th year. A 10 year warranty spans these dangerous years of discovery. For homes over one year old, FHA requires a "termite inspection" before they will insure a new mortgage. Every buyer should insist on such a report at the escrow closing by a firm in whom he has confidence. A thorough inspection costs about $80.00, which is paid by the seller.

Your Key to a Better City A comprehensive bond program is absolutely essential for the capital improvements our City will need during the next five to seven years. Over a period of many months, a cirixens committee worked out a minimum program, to meet the city's basic needs. All these proposals were overwhelmingly approved by the voters of Phoenix last year. On Tuesday, August 78th, Phoenix voters must re-approve the program, because the 1969 election was declared invalid by the U.S. Supreme Court. This year, all registered voters will be eligible. We must also give our approval again to a small amount of unsold bonds first authoriied in 1961. Total amount involved is $177,400,000. These are the vitally needed capital improvements to assure orderly growth and progress.
