JULY 12. 1770 FINAL Edition NiNTY-SiX PASES City, Police Hopeful Of Settlement Two Principal Issues Remain To Be Solved Differences between city officials and Tuc- son policemen appeared yesterday to be near a settlement as both sides developed a solid line of communication to iron out their dis- agreements. Attorney James Quigley, representing the Fraternal Order of Police, met with the mayor and City Council in the council chambers to discuss police employment and grievance de- mands. Patrolman Paul Tracey seemed to repre- sent the policemen's attitude after the meeting when he said, "The biggest thing now is the fact that we're (city officials and police) are communicating." Quigley agreed to meet Tuesday night with City Manager Roger O'Mara and City Attorney Lewis Murphy to discuss issues that both sides agreed yesterday there was little or no dis- agreement about. O'Mara said he would pre- pare a report on their meeting to present to the mayor and the council by Friday on items they agreed or disagreed upon. Two of the FOP requests, city recogni- tion of the FOP as the bargaining agent for policemen who belong to the FOP (all but 13 of more than 300 officers) and an arbitration agreement will be taken up later by Quigley and Murphy. These two issues involve legal disagreements between the two attorneys about whether the city can enter into an arbi- tration and bargaining agent agreement with employees. O'Mara said he would try to submit a re- port to the mayor and City Council on basic, agreements and differences betweeirthe FOP and the city by July 27, Murphy told Quigley the city could possibly accept an arbitration agreement with the city if Quigley could reword the legal agreement presented to the city. Murphy said if he and Quigley still disagreed after the rewording, they could ask the state attorney general for a ruling on the matter. Mayor James N. Corbett Jr. said any new concessions gained by the Police Department as far as fringe and other benefits were con- cerned would be passed on to every other city employee, and Quigley said he agreed. "I do hope when we discuss these things we do it with a greater rapidity than we.have in the Quigley told the governing body. Councilman Richard Kennedy, however, told Quigley he was trying to put blame on the governing body for slow negotiations and said "that is simply not O'Mara described the meeting as "very productive" and said the issues over which there is little dispute should be settled first, "and then the legal (bargaining agent and ar- bitration) issues will be easier to resolve." Quigley said after the meeting that he hopes the matters discussed Saturday can be resolved between the FOP and the city within the next two weeks. He added, however, that he was "disappointed that the city wouldn't make a definite statement of issues we came here to discuss. Kennedy said "there is no great problem in settling their requests, and it'll just take some give and take to settle the two legal issues." ring Students Get Role In Parleys FLAGSTAFF The Arizona Board of Re- gents Saturday approved a study of the Uni- versity of Arizona Student Constitution, to be made jointly by student government (ASUA) and the administration. UA President Richard A. Han-ill said he hoped the study would clarify certain derstandings'' in the document, which has been given different interpretations by ASUA and by the administration, especially in regard to control of student funds. Reports earlier this week indicated tha'. Harvill and Vice President Marvin D. Johnson would ask for the abolition of the 1965 con- stitution and all amendments made since then. But Harvill said yesterday that he had no such intentions and still hoped that, the con stitution and its amendments could be inter- preted at the university level, rather tha bringing them to the regents. Harvill said the constitution had worked ef- fectively for the first two years and that it was only during the past three years that problems had arisen over it. In another decision affecting students at all three universities, the regents denied a request for student participation in board meetings, saying that this would be permitted only on rare occasions. Regent's President Wesley P. Goss. in a let- ter to the State Universities' three student body presidents, said that most student propos- als could be handled at a lower level, without having to come before the board. He said the few questions requiring board action could be better handled if presented in carefully documented written form. Gov. Jack Williams said the board's struc- ture, with each regent serving for an eight- year tenure, does not lend itself to student par- ticipation. "If students took part in the work of the board, they would have to absent themselves for such long periods from their studies that they'd have difficulty he said. "In addition, student participation would lead to requests for participation from oilier groups such as the faculty, staff, alumni and civic interests." Dr. Paul Singer, regent from Prescott. said the board must not attempt to represent vested interests on the campuses. "The regents represent the public, not indi- vidual he said. "We must maintain a certain aloofness from these interests." Harvill told the regents that the visitation and student key policies begun last fail at the UA are working out very satisfactorily and that he did not recommend any major changes. The visitation policy allows residents of fra- ternity and sorority houses and dormitories to have guests of the opposite sex in their rooms during certain specified hours. The key regu- lation permits women students to return after their living unit has been locked for the night. Hanill said there had only been four in- (Conttnued on Page 11 A. Col.

(AP) An estimated bot- tles and cans landed in the city dump here Saturday in a cleanup project that cost the sponsoring savings and loan institution about "It's only said an official of the First Federal Sav- ings Loan Assn. as he watched the experiment which cost his firm two cents per container. The institution had promoted the project with modest expectations, thinking it would receive sev- eral thousand empties from Skagit County roadsides. The drive was to run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, but by 7 a.m. cars and trucks had begun to line up outside a city parking lot adjacent to the savings institution to dump the cans. At one point the line of vehicles stretched five miles away. People of of all ages brought cans and bottles in plastic bags, paper sacks, cartons and gunny sacks. One boy lugged his collection in a small red wagon; another pushed a baby car- riage. "One family five children and the parents picked up almost cans, working at it all Wilson said. NEWTON. Iowa (AP) Iowa's native prairie flower, which once blanketed the land in a sea of colors before man plowed it under, poked its head above the bromegrass on a hillside last week and was blasted with weed killer. For Frank Pellett of rural Newton it a sickening loss. He set out to prove that if the flowers could be re-established Iowa's roads they would not only provide beauty from spring to fall but would stabilize hillsides and crowd out weeds. So in 1966 he started writing letters to the Iowa Highway Commission seeking permission to use two acres of roadside near his home for the experiment. The flowers bloomed for the first time this year, but for many death was headed down the highway. It arrived last Wednesday, a large orange Iowa Highway Commission truck which spewed pesticides over the plants. By Saturday many of them had shriveled up and turned black. The truck driver had mistaken them for weeds. Richard A. Hamli New Technology Imperils Privacy Murray Sinclair The electronics revolution is transforming our culture and threatening one of Americans' most prized possessions privacy. If you feel secure from prying eyes and ears in the privacy of your home, apartment, office, hotel and motel room and such places as the bathrooms of stores or factories you're living in a dream world. Giant computers and tiny, highly sensitive microphones, transmitters, cameras and elec- tric eyes are in danger of ripping away the fundamental right to basic secrecy. Author Ian Fleming's fertile mind never provided James Bond with a flock of the spy- ing devices now widely in use across the coun- try. All of us are now represented in the memo- ry bank of one or more electrical digital com- puters. If we have paid a bill, signed a check, been to a hospital, received a parking ticket, got a summons, traveled on a toll highway, bought or sold stocks, bonds or goods even been born we are recorded, stored and processed in some information machine. In time, we could even be stripped of our names and rank and given the indignity of a numbered identity. John Brown would be 527- 32-5386-831B. The threat to our privacy, and what can happen, is generally uncomprehended except by a few congressmen, industrial specialists and thinkers. At the same time concern over who will have access to everything that happens to us from the womb to the tomb, and how far in- vestigators can go in prying into our private lives, is growing. Because of this concern the establishment of a National Data Bank has been held up, and is being kept in the dis- cussion stage. The ability to pry is increasing far more rapidly than the safeguards: and there does not seem to be any body or law defining value of personal information. French sociologist Jacques Kllul maintains "The Technological Society" that we have vir- tually lost control over technological forces and consequently will move closer and closer to totalitarianism. l.p.ontine Young says in ''Life Among Gi- ants" that "Without privacy there is no indi- viduality, there are only types. Who can know what he thinks and feels if he never has the opportunity to be alone with his thoughts and Everyone, for emotional release, must have privacy. President Nixon and the ditch digger need time to themselves. How else can they engage in self-evaluation? Man's need for privacy is probably rooted in his animal ori- gins. Business, unions, governments, committees all groups must on occasion meet in privacy. This is becoming increasingly diffi- cult. The ways in which privacy are being in- vaded are frightening.

Hanlll announced his retirement, effective June at the Ari- zona Board of Regents meeting here Saturday. The UA administrator, who has seen the institution's enrollment grow to about since he assumed the post in 1951, said his decision was based solely on the fact that he had reached retirement age and that his ten- ure in office was "much longer than is typical for American university presidents." Harvill said that he continued to find the president's role interesting and personally re- warding and that he looked forward to another year of sen-ice. Regent Ehvood P. Bradford of Yuma praised Han-ill, saying that the UA would be losing one of the outstanding educational ad- ministrators in the country today. Bradford said Han-ill's three most unusual qualities were his ability to judge people, his insistence on running the university himself and his honesty. "The first enabled him to surround himself with a very capable Bradford said. "He has insisted in maintaining control of the tmi- -vexsity .himself, despite the fact that there are many people who would like to take over, such as students, alumni or civk interests. "But his honesty is his most important quality. Never once have I ever known him to try to pull the wool over our eyes. When we ask his opinion, we know we are getting the full story." One of the major accomplishments in Har- vill's nearly 20 years of sen-ice as president was the establishment of the state's first school of medicine in the middle 1960s. The medical school will graduate its first class of students next year, about the "same time that Hanill will step down. In addition, Hanill has followed a strong building program for the entire campus and is known for his ability to obtain research grants from government., private industry and foun- dations. The regents did not discuss a possible suc- cessor for Hanill. The board also accepted the resignation of Dr. J. Bryon McCormick, a former president of the UA and dean of the law college, from his post as associate adviser to the regents. He will remain as a consultant to Han'ill on a limit basis- Board of Regents members and university presidents are required to retire at 70, said Kenneth Murphy, UA vice president of busi- ness affairs, but they can continue if they get regents permission each year past 70. "Harvill's resignation is strictly said Murphy, AF Missile Goes Astray, Probably Hits In Mexico WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE, N.M. (AP) An Air Force Athena missile pro- grammed to come down on this New Mexico desert testing ground went astray early Satur- day and probably crashed in a remote section of Mexico. Range officials said the missile probably landed in mountains 180 miles southeast of Chi- huahua City, Mex., about 400 miles south of where it should have hit on the missile range. They also said the Athena might have been destroyed by the stress of atmospheric re-en- try. It was fired at p.m. from Green River, Utah, for an overland flight to White sands, 400 miles to the southeast. The Athena would be the third White Sands Missile to land in Mexico since the nation's space program be- gan here 25 years ago. The Athena is used to test re-entry charac- teristics of warheads and other parts that will be used on intercontinental ballistic missiles. After launching from southern Utah, it climbs above the earth's atmosphere then rockets the test components back into the atmosphere at speeds up to miles an hour. -1
