Arizona Silver Belt (Newspaper) - May 18, 1967, Miami, Arizona Pool prospects brighter H Prospects of getting the Mi- ami swimming pool in operation this summer looked brighter at the end of Monday nights' coun- cil meeting. COUNCELMEN voted to ac- cept the pool after Sam Lazo- vich appeared in behalf of his sister, Rose Lucivich, to say the 25 per cent profit clause would be deleted from the lease agree- ment. A discussion of the back debts turned into a heated exchange between cour.cilmen, former councilmen and Chamber of Commerce members. A, J, Flor- es, questioned whether the town could legally take over the debts. Lazovich answered that they could as consideration for the property. "I would like to see organiza- tions help pay it off because it is not budgeted Flores added. "I'm in accord with the town accepting the pool, but I'm sure there are .enough public- spirited citizens in town to pay for it." Mrs. Weimer remarked she would like to see the Chamber of Commerce "come up with some help." FLORES added, "Leave the Chamber of Commerce out of it and I'll start the drive with Chamber board of directors member Charlie Clark answer- ed, "Leave the chamber in and I'll give for me and for the chamber. Councilman Dave Barragon made a motion that Clark be named chairman and Flores co- chairman of a Clear the Pool Debts committee. The motion was passed unanimously. Clark said if the town would vote to. accept the pool, he would guarantee the back debts would be paid off with contri- butions from the public. A total of is needed to pay all back debts from last sum- mer's operation. In other business, Otto. Santa Anna appeared before the coun- cil to ask that plans be made to extend the sewer lines into Mackey's Camp. He remarked that he is building a home there and would like to connect to the sewer. STREET Superintendent Char- lie Phillips said the Santa Anna house could be connected with- out too much trouble but that extension into Mackey's Camp would require a much longer and larger line, which would cost a lot more. Councilman Adolph Trujillo said he felt the town should be setting aside some funds each year in preparation for new subdivisions. A. J. Flores asked the council to consider an ordinance which would make it necessary for any subdivision of five lots or more to have utilities in before lots are sold. He added that a plat of the proposed subdivisions should also be submitted to the council for approval. The mat- ter was referred to the judiciary committee for study. John Sandoval of Depot Hill asked the council for an ex- planation as to why he was not accepted into the volunteer (ire department. He said he was not given a good reason, merely told he was not voted in. FIRE CHIEF Ernest Lincoln said he had no jurisdiction over the volunteers, so the matter was turned over to the fire de- partment committee for inves- tigation. Police Chief Stiteler said department had several from parents about the sale a beverage which has an imita- tion beer flavor and smell. He said he contacted the state liquor control board and said the sale was not-illegal However, Stiteler said he would approach the local stores to see if it might be voluntarily re- moved.

SHERWOOD ANDERSON, spe- cial agent in charge of the US Secret Service in Arizona, said they are Kenneth H. Merrill, 42, of Show Low and Faustino ,Q. Lopez, 42, of soii said Merrill owns Mike's Tavern in Winkelman. The agent stated that the counterfeit money is associated with bogus bills that have turned up throughout Arizona, Utah and on the West Coast the past few months. "This is a big he said. Merrill and Lopez were ar- rested after an employe of a San Diego restaurant refused a bill. They were charged with pos- sessing and passing counterfeit bills. SOME in counterfeit bills was found in their luggae at a motel; another was seized in Merrill's car parked at Sky Harbor Airport, Anderson said. Coil lagged for board Ben R. Coil, general manager and vice-president of Miami Cop- per Company, has been named by Governor Jack Williams to the 16-member advisory board which will contend with Ari- zona's air pollution problems, on the state level. Coil received a three-year term as a representative of the mining industry. Roosevelt claims another victim A Mother's Day tragedy claim- ed the second life in the Jim Fields family in the past few weeks. Gila County Rescue Squad 1 members recovered the body of 18-year-old Brand Seldal late Sunday in 35 feet of water, one mile north of Roosevelt Dam. Sp4 Seldal was home on 30- day leave from the Army visit- ing his family in Tempe. He and .his stepfather, Jim Fields, went fishing and the young man de- cided to take a swim. Deputies reported the drown- ing to Rescue Squad. An inquest was held Tuesday in Miami Justice Court. The jury ruled Seldal's death was due to accidertal drowning. Only a few weeks earlier his brother was killed in an auto- mobile accident. Gov. Williams visits in area Gov. Jack Williams was in the area Wednesday to speak at the monthly law enforcement official's luncheon at Apache- land in Globe. This was the last luncheon for members of the various law enforcement agencies before the summer recess. Eyeball to eyeball The feud between some coun- cilmen and ex-councilmen and the Chamber of Commerce over who is going to spearhead a move to raise money for the swimming pool debts is ridicu- lous. We have never seen any money, nor any debts tagged "not to be taken care of by the Chamber of Commerce." Mon- ey's money and we would wager that not one child swim- ming in that pool this summer would care where it came from. Barm Two person charged in con- nection with a gambling raid at Harold's Club Feb. 11 have been found guilty of conducting a game of Black Jack and selling alcoholic beverages after hours. BEN EIDSON entered a guil- ty plea to conducting a' game of Black Jack when he appeared last week before Acting City Magistrate Charlie Phillips. He was fined In a jury triai Tuesday, Izola Wilton was found guilty on two counts of selling after hours. Her attorney served notice of appeal. Shi; was found not gull- -ty pintjUl-ma- chine. Mrs. Wilton, the barmaid at Harold's Club was charged for selling alcoholic beverages after hours on Feb. 4 and Feb. 11, the night of the raid. Testifying for the prosecution were two state liquor control agents, who stat- ed they bought beer on one oc- casioh and a mixed drink on another occasion after legal hours. The town's case was present- ed by Town Attorney Charles Eckerman and associate, Barry De Rose. DEFENDING Mrs. Wilton in the five-hour trial was Robert A. Petrie of Mesa. Mrs, Wilton testified the two agents "ha- rassed" her during the evening of the raid and denied any knowledge of activities in a "back room" at the club. She also stated she gave one of the agents some change after he played the pinball machine, but as a refund since the machine was malfunctioning. A trial set for Wednesday for J. T. Dungan, licensee of the club, has been postponed indef- initely. 'LET'S GO SHOPPING, DAD" Children in the kindergarten classes at Central Heights are getting a realistic lesson in shopping during their sessions, even to dressing up for the occasion. The youngsters provided all the boxes, cans and cartons for their "store." Doing their daily shopping are (1 to r) Edna Fay Lisk, Jimmy Van Drone and Cynthia Martin. Clerks are Catrina Minefee and Tina Flores. Court reverses Gault conviction warm Hi Thursday 76 Friday 74 Saturday 75 Sunday Monday 76 Tuesday 85 Wednesday 92 Lo 50 47 49 48 48 56 L. Walters It is possible the juvenile case of Gerald Gault of Globe will revert to Gila County Superior Court, Judge Robert McGhee said Tuesday. "It's too early to say, yet, he added. "I CAN ONLY speculate. I have not read the court's order, but I assume as in the Miranda decision, his case would have to be the judge added. The nation's highest court this week extended guarantees under the Bill of Rights to juve- niles charged with crimes. The decision came -after Mr, and Mrs. Paul Gault of Winkelman appealed the 1964 conviction of their son, Gerald, who, with a friend, was found guilty of making a lewd telephone call from a Globe trailer. He was 15 at the time and served six months in Fort Grant. He was released from the industrial school's custody in January. He is now 18. As to how the decision will affect the juvenile courts, Judge McGhee said, "it depends on how much latitude we are al- lowed in talking to juveniles. "WE HAD 300 referrals for delinquency last year. Many of a minor nature were handled without a formal hearing when a child admitted doing things he was charged with. Once he admitted his problem, he was 'Clear debts' drive moving A Clear-the-Pool-Debts cam- paign started with a bang Mon- day night when members of the council and visitors pitched in to get the drive off to a rolling start. CHARLIE Clark was named chairman and A. J. Flores co- chairman of the committee, which collected that night and by Tuesday evening. Donors to date include Dave Barragon, Adolph Trujillo, A. J. Flores, Frank Thraen, Sam Laz- ovich Katie Weimer, Robert Stiteler, George Ihrig, Ernest Lincoln, Charlie Phillips, Em- ma Koontz, Charlie Clark, J. T. Dungan, Leoo Cupples, Build- er's Supply and Nawfel's Frosty Freeze. A total of is needed to pay off the swimming pool debts. Although the town wants to accept the pool, the budgeted for its operation will be needed to get the pool and equipment ready to open. reprimanded and juvenile offi- cers worked with his parents and advised him." Again Judge MrGhee said he was speculating, "If we should have to hold 390 formal hear- ings with lawyers present, it would be very time-consuming and costly. Perhaps we should consider hiring a public de- fender. "If we are going to have at- torneys, the state should be rep- resented by the county attor- ney's office. He would have to issue written petitions with the precise legal terminology used (Continued on Page 7) Steve Gonzales receives two-month trip abroad Steve Gonzales, a Miami High School graduating senior, has received the opportunity of a lifetime.
