M Nortfcwnt Arkamet TIMES, W«d., May 15, 1974 . rAYCTTKVIU.1. ARKANSAS Repulsed By Fanatics Zebra Informant's Life Said Put On Line 'OAKLAND. Calif. (AP) - '·People were being killer! at a pretty good clip. But il stopped when Anthony Harris put his life on the line" says Irving J. Hurd Jr. · Hurd, a lawyer, identified Harris on Tuesday as Ihe informant whose meetings with San ^·ancisco Mayor Joseph L. Alioto led to the arrests of three black men in the random Zebra street killings of whites. i Hurd, who acted as the go- between, said in an interview With the Oakland Tribune that Harris, the key informer in the rase, was "in so deeply lie couldn't get out" in his in- Oblvement with a black separatist group he had joined in prison. : Hurd said Harris was rc- piilsed by the group's fanatical dedication to killing whites and dissident blacks, and went to the police in a desperate effort te extricate himself. He said Harris was aware the group would try to kill him, even if he was in jail. He went to authorities seeking protection and the $30.000 reward that had been offered. Hurd said. · "He claimed the terrorist organization had already killed his brother f o r - infraction of flricl rules by which the group lives, 11 Hurd said. DEFENDS ALIOTO Hurd defended Alioto against critics who said the mayor's role was designed to bring attention to his gubernatorial campaign. Aliolo has charged group called the "Death Angels" is responsible for 80 murders nationwide, although law- enforcement authorities say they have no evidence of any such activity outside San Fran- He said the mas'or "was absolutely superb, drawing from him (Harris) more and more details of one of the most incredible murder plots ever conceived. Frankly, he should be given credit rather than abuse lor his ability lo draw information from the informant." Hurd said he became involved in the case when Harris contacted a u f m a n . an associate, Larry "Mention was made of the Zebra case" and Kaufman advised H a r r i s to see a criminal lawyer, Hurd said. Harris has since testified before the San Francisco grand j u r y investigating the Zebra killings and is in hiding again. Three persons have been charged in three of the slayings. Four others were arrested, then released for lack of evidence.

Lewis business, Mayo official fro City Council To Negotiate With Cab Firm SPRINGDALE -- The Springdale City Council, at its regular meeting Tuesday, authorized the city's Public,, Vehicle Commission to negotiate with Fayetteville Transportation Service Co. for taxi cab service in Springdale. The Fayetlcville-bascd cab company has been operating two taxi cabs in the city for two weeks at the request ol Mayor Park Phillips and members of the commission. This request was m a d e during a closed meeting at which the cily dropped its franchise with the Springdale Cab Co. According to commission member James Irwin. the Springdale firm had ceased operations for three consecutive days during which time Ihe mayor's office received several calls asking about cab service. Neither the Council-authorized franchise holder. Virgil Ellis, nor the unauthorized new franchise holder. James Tin cher, were notified of the f r a n c h i s e ' s cancellation. Phillips said TiiKher could not Irwin said R. E. the Fayetleville Transportation Service Co. heard that cab service iti Springdale had ceased and offered his cabs. Since the temporary interest item in the Downtown Emma project's budget already has been overrun by more (ban $100,000 and is expected to overrun $150,000 within two years, (he estimated time still needed to close oul the project. HUD has money for such amcndatorics and requested that Springdale make application for funding. Lewis said. The city presently has enough non-cash grant-in-aid credits to meet its share of Ihe additional $150,000 to be requested. CITY'S SHAKE Lewis said the city's share would be $50,000. Since Springdale already has done enough work in Ihe project to equal Uie $50,000 obligation, no cash would be t a k e n from the city's budget. The resolution was adopted unanimously. Lewis said the council also needed to adopt a resolution a m e n d i n g t h e cooperative agreement between the city of Springdale and the urban renewal agency to reflect the additional $150,000 f u n d i n g to be requested. The council adopted In other Phillips -said Frisco Etailroad would mee with him today to discuss prot lems al Ihe inlersections of cit streets and the railroad tracks.

"I've been a b a r m a i d foi eight years and I've dealt witl lot of people. You can tall people out of having fights."

The strip, of land will be used as easement for an already-laid 'sewer line in the Downtown -Emma project. Aldermen unanimously adopted a resolution supporting the Northwest Arkansas Criminal J u s t i c e Planning Council .hrough which the city can apply for federal law enforcement. Police Chief Joe Sims told the council the resolution will be a yearly agenda item. However, he noted that this year the planning council districts have leen reorganized so that the Northwest Arkansas district's area planner who once office in Fort work out of a stallation of his cabs. Barnes requested the city to let his company provide permanent taxi service.

Approximately 9.11 acres about two miles west on McRay Avenue west of Paradise Lane were annexed lo Springdale at Tuesday night's meeting. Attorney Stan Ludwick representing 1 a" n d p w n e r Virgil Cordes apologized for the trdiness in bringing the matter before the council. Ludwick said the annexation underwent county court procedures last November. BUILDING PERMITS The councilmen and Mayor told councilmen the Vehicle Commission Phillips expressed sur- that this land was not dale. ' Invin Public wanted to "straddle the fence' on the $100 fee. waiting until January 1, 1975 to review Ihe matter. He said the commission also w a n t s to work with Barnes in establishing a revised rale schedule for cab fares. The revised rate schedule ^ould be subject to council approval. Tnvin explained thai as the schedule now stands, cab f a r e is computed from ihe center of town. Persons t r a v e l i n g within Zone One the center of to\vn -- pay 70 cents per rirle. The fare increases 25 cents for each zone outward from the center of town. A person living on the Benton County line in Springdale and wanting to travel south to the railroad underpass on Hwy. 71 in Springdale would be charged $2.75. The commission feels (his fare is too 'nigh since Ihose persons using the service are usually Ihe ones who can'l afford t h a t k i n d of fare. Irwin said.

A city planning commission member said Cordes has already presented plats of the subdivision to the commission Tor its approval. After deciding it apparently was due to an administrative error t h a t the area was not already annexed, councilmen adopted the ordinance annexing the land. The attached emergency clause was also adopted. Two rezoning requests that had been previously approved by the planning commission were granted by the city council at Tuesday's meeting. Aldermen rezoncd three lots on Scott Lane in (he White Hills Addition from single-family residential to m u l t i - f a m i l y residential in order that developers H. C. and L. H. Schmieding can build duplex housing beneath utility lines. The council also rezoned a four-acre plot north of Jackson Road in Benton County from agricultural to commercial thoroughfare. Owned by Bill Schneider, the land originally was zoned commercial but in correctly classed as agricul tural on the zoning map.
