REPUBUi Cltf 8-A The Arizona Republic O Phoenix, Thurs., Nov. 6. GoIdberg^s divorce suit hits sparks Excerpts from Philip J. Goldberg's 1968 divorce proceedings provided the first fireworks yesterday in the trial of Goldberg's $8.75 million suit against Pioneer Bank, its attorneys and some of its directors. Goldberg has charged he was not given $500,000 in Pioneer Bank stock he had agreed to purchase prior to the merger of Pioneer Bank with the Bank' of Scottsdale. He claimed he lost a possible $8.25.million in profits by not having had the stock. Elias Romely, the bank's defense counsel and a defendant himself, asked Goldberg under cross-examination if he had not really instituted the damage suit to have Romley removed as counsel for Mrs. Goldberg during the divorce proceedings then in progress. Goldberg replied that he had instituted the suit because "I felt I was wronged, and any remarks about the divorce proceedings are better left unsaid." Romley 1 then read from the divorce proceedings transcript 1 of Feb. 19, 1968, when Goldberg was asked if he was "contemplating filing action or asking an attorney to investigate the Pioneer Bank transaction." The question was posed by Goldberg's counsel in the divorce action, Harry J. Cavanagh. The transcript quoted Goldberg as saying he was contemplating such action. Yesterday, Goldberg admitted the answers were correct, "if that is what the transcript says." Then Romley turned to the divorce proceedings for March 8, 1968, the day the damage suit was filed. He again read from the transcript, with Cavanagh again questioning Goldberg if the suit had been filed, and was quoted as answering "Yes." Cavanagh then attempted to have Romley removed on the basis of a conflict of interest, in that there was pending against Romley litigation by one of the parties in the divorce suit. The motion was not allowed in the divorce proceedings, but Goldberg's present defense counsel, Harned Pettus Hoose, moved to have the transcript testimony struck from the present record because it could in no way impeach Goldberg's present testimony. Visiting U.S. District Court Judge William D. Murray, of Butte, Mont., at first rejected the motion, but following a recess, permitted the striking of testimony from the divorce suit transcript. Romley completed his cross-examination of Goldberg yesterday, and Hopse will begin his requestioning Goldberg today as the trial enters its fourth day. Close files. Research discussed * plea asks on electric vehicles Republic Photo by Forrelt Stroup Teachers Mrs. John Whelan, Charles Lee Whitecraft and Mrs. Robert Clements, from left, help ring up $84,600 for United Fund campaign. United Fund U F -backed Plus-60 gains start bells ringing Representatives of 10 sections in the United Fund education division rang small school bells yesterday to announce that they had reached 100 per cent of their 1970 campaign quota. Their achievement and a $2,600 contribution from the Phoenix Suns basketball team brought total campaign progress to $1,616,696, or 62 per cent of the $2.6 million goal. Campaign chairman Karl Eller gave the bells to school personnel drive leaders in recognition of their achievement, which places them first among the 10 divisions in progress to date, during a report luncheon at the Smokehouse Restaurant. Charles Lee Whitecraft, who heads the 18 education sections, said the accomplishment reported by 10 of the sections yesterday brings his division to 94 per cent of its $90,000 quota. Jerry Colangelo, Phoenix Suns general manager, presented Eller proceeds ;from an exhibition game Oct. 3 with the San Francisco Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers and San Diego Rockets. .Other reports revealed that the; cities of Phoenix and Scottsdale are leading the .government division in its campaign for $167,000. Phoenix chairman Pat Jackson said her section has collected pledges for $41,025, more than 100 per cent of its $41,000 goal, noting that street and sanitation workers were especially generous contributors. Scottsdale has reached 96 per cent of its $2,000 quota, chairman Don Renz said. Report luncheons will be held the next two Wednesdays at the restaurant. Arizona Public Service Co. sponsored yesterday's luncheon. The campaign ends Nov. 19. success story Three senior citizens yesterday visited the Plus-60 Personnel office at 804-A N. Fourth St. with success stories to tell. Plus - 60, despite its name, is a free employment service for persons over 50. It will become one of the 39 Valley United Fund supported agencies beginning January ID 197 ° Mildred Haines, 67, who stopped by the office to report her progress, said the service found her a job as "a companion to an elderly lady." "I came to Phoenix on Ash Wednesday," she recalled, "stopped by this office and found work just like that." Bill Wells, 74, was reapplying for work, but said the office had previously placed him as a companion to older men. "This place is wonderful," he said. "It makes it easier for people like us to find em- . ployment." Mrs. Blanche Crews' success was in finding an employment agency willing to help someone of her age search for part time office work. Like many people 1 near retirement age, she had made tlie rounds of prospective employers and employment agencies on her own, but "I found more success here," she said. Edesse Dahlgren, Plus-60 president, said many of the applicants "come in here absolutely . down. They may have been in one job for 25 years and now don't know the job market changes or how to go about getting a new job and be interviewed." The 12-year-old service, which is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Fri• day, counsels and conducts classes and seminars • for these people. Every month it places 45 to 50 persons, who in that period of time add $5,000 to $8,000 to the economy, Miss Dahlgren noted. Employers also benefit by hiring senior citizens who "have to augment Social Security or want to feel needed," she added, because that age group has "know-how, wisdom and stability." Plus-60 is supported by contributions and memberships. With; its United Fund allocation next year it hopes to expand the counseling now done only by Miss Dahlgren and executive secretary Mrs. Marie Wienand. The 1970 UF campaign for $2.6 million ends Nov. 19. The City of Phoenix yesterday asked the State Court of Appeals to deny access to certain police records to the plaintiff who filed a $200,000 false-arrest suit against the city. The Maricopa County Superior Court suit against the city and Policeman W. Eugene Scott is by Tony Dauksis, who alleges he was subjected to false arrest and assault and battery by police earlier this year near 2600 E. McDowell. Dauksis charges he was wrongfully jailed and maliciously prosecuted on charges of drunk and disorderly conduct, using vulgar language, and disobeying an officer, since he subsequently was acquitted. To further his suit, Dauksis illegally is attempting to subpoena police personnel records of any disciplinary actions against Officer Scott, plus statements by fellow officers, the city alleges in its petition to the appeals court. The petition asks the appellate court to prohibit Superior Court Judge Howard Peterson from requiring the city to produce the records. The petition will be heard at 1:30 P.M. Nov. 20 in Department B of Division 1 of the appeals court. On-lhe-road vehicles, electrified railroads and urban transit systems are three of the major areas being researched by developers of electric motive systems, according to William J. Clapp, chairman of the Electric Vehicle Council. Clapp's address yesterday opened the First International Electric Vehicle Symposium at the TowneHouse. "In this country," said Clapp, "the on-the-road vehicle market is virtually untapped. One hundred of the major electric utility companies alone own and operate more than 85,000 cars, trucks and other vehicles and more than 30,000 of these travel less than 50 miles a day." He pointed out that the Edison Electric Institute alone has committed $1.6 million to the development of high - energy - density batteries which will help supply some of the answers to vehicles that could supply such a market. Similar activity in research and development is taking place in other industries, ranging from tlic automotive field to suppliers of components. "Urban transit systems and transit systems needed around airports form another immediate area for action," according to Clapp. "Application of electrification to transportation problems in our crowded cities could do much to ease traffic and to improve the quality of urban life," he pointed out.

All of the thieves were identified by the drivers as having been Negroes, except for the two men who robbed Brewer, who were said by him to be Mexican-American, police reported. Clarence Shumway was denied his request yesterday that the City of Phoenix be forced to place his name on the Nov. 11 u ballot as a candidate for mayor. The denial came from Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Morris Rozar. Shumway appealed to the court after he was informed by the city that his nominating peti- voters. Shumway's attorney, Barbara Dunham of Scottsdale, sought to prove^, yesterday that the city had stricken "at least eight" signatures of voters who were eligible to sign for Shumway, there-by making all strikes illegal. After a discussion, Assistant City Attorney Alan Polley agreed .that, seven of the names could be counted, but argued that Shumway needed at least 466 more valid signatures to be a, candidate on the ballot and the other strikes were legal. Rozar agreed with Polley. Suhumway, after Rozar's ruling, said he was "very disappointed" not to be on the ballot, but he said he would seek election , as a write-in candidate.
