In deciding to call a new grand jury, the judges acted on a recommendation by County Atty. Harry Acker- man.

Castro was assigned 24-hour guard by armed deputy sheriffs last night after his wife received three telephone calls from a youth who threatened to kill the judge. Because of a court case, Castro could not be reached by telephone last night, depu- ties said. The courthouse switchboard closes at 5 p.m. Castro, who doubles as Juvenile court judge, quoted his wife as saying, a "very determined and mean-sound- ing young man" called her three separate times trying to reach the judge. "He threatened to kill me, to 'rub me because I'd sent his buddy to Ft. Castro said. Ft. Grant is the site of the State Industrial School for Boys, where offenders under 18 years of age are sent. Sheriff's detectives today were screening records of Castro's juvenile hearings in hopes of gaining a clue as to the identity of the caller and his "buddy." The judge said threatening calls "are old stuff to us we've h4d about a dozen since I first became county attorney in 1955. "But my wife (a former deputy sheriff) said this guy really sounded like he meant business. He wasn't drunk, just meaiv and Castro The judge admitted he was "concerned" because the cal- ler was a young person. "They're more apt to do rash on the spur of the moment without think- ing of the Castro said. Sheriffs deputies indicated crank calls and drunken threati against county offi- this one sounds said one deputy. "We can't take chances." Castro was hearing a civil case in Superior Court last night until about The sheriff's office assigned Depu- ty Thomas Cromwell to guard him from 10 p.m. until mid- night, when the judge arrived home. Deputy Mike Valenzuela took over at midnight and stayed at the Castro home un- til a.m., when he was relieved by Cromwell, who was to be with Castro at all times today. Cromwell accom p a n i e d Castro to the Pima County Juvenile Detention Home this morning, where the judge conducted weekly juvenile hearings. Rain Is Good Possibility We're going to have Some rain, you know. But keep on smiling: It's better'n snow, Annie There's a good possi- bility that showers ex- pected tonight may con- tinue through tomorrow, the weather experts tell us. The low pressure area from the West Coast which caused today's overcast is expected to bring light rains by to- night and snow flurries to higher nearby moun- tain areas. It will be a little cooler tomorrow, making the rain seem chillier. A 64- degree maximum high is predicted, three degrees cooler than yesterday's warmest. Tonight's low will be near 45. Last night's low was 47. At 2 p.m. today it was 58 with 50 per cent humidity. Full Weather Report. II Pearl Harbor Warning Repeated PEARL HARBOR, this missile and thermonuclear age, it would be foolhardy indeed to as- sume that surprise attack will never be a possibility." This warning was in a. speech prepared for delivery today by Adm. John H. Sides, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, at ceremonies marking the 20th anniversary of the Japanese Pearl Harbor. attack on Settlement Reported In Dominican Crisis SANTO DOMINGO, Domin- ican sources said today a settle- ment has been reached in the Dominican political crisis. It is understood the agree- ment calls for the resignation of President Joaquin Balaguer before Dec. 31 and installa- tion of a provisional council of state to govern this island nation seeking a new way Ceremonies were held on a platform above the waters along non-restored "battleship i row." Activity throughout the naval base halted momentar- ily in memory of that black 7, 1941. The ceremony was timed to coincide with the exact mo- ment a.m. when the first Japanese planes swooped low over the battleships lin- ing the northeast shores of Ford Island. BELOW THE memorial platform for the U.S.S. Ari- zona, center of today's cere- monies, was the rusting hulk of the warship and the re- mains of crewmen who went down with her. The Ari- zona and her crew are sym- bols of those hours when war came to the United States. South of the Arizona the old battleship row was va- cant. But between the flag flying above the Arizona and one beside Ford Island's ad- ministration building less than a mile away nearly men died on a Sunday morning. "The lessons learned (that Informants said an accord j are recorded. ir.blood" ways be reacy to defend the freedoms for which we stand and for which these men and died." Taking part in the memor- ial tribute were military lead- ers, congressmen, and repre- sentatives of veterans organ- izations, including 108 Pearl Harbor raid survivors from New England. A group of 60 Gold Star Mothers, many of whose sons died on the Ari- zona, also was on hand. See TUCSONIAN, Page 21 In a prepared statement announcing his recommenda- tion to call a new grand jury, Ackerman declared that "be- cause of the passage of time, the outlawing of certain crimes because of statutes of limitations, and the death or disappearance of potential witnesses, the job of success- fully investigating the city's steel purchases will be diffi- cult." Ackerman said that he felt a complete investigation should be undertaken "be- cause of the large amount of money and principals in- volved." In a 1957-58 stockpiling program, the city paid for steel bought from the General Steel Co. of Carlstadt, N. J., and Universal Indus- tries Inc., of New York City. Investigation indicated that pollution. "EACH DAY in this town there are tons of waste products put into the air from automobile Nordby said.

AS FOR the general air pollution situation here, Nord- by called it "moderate, but getting worse." In his view, air pollution Nordby congratulated thejmust be considercd in some Automobile Manufacturers i wavs separate from dust Assn. for agreeing yesterday j which makes up 96 per cent to place air pollution control devices on the 1963 model cars and trucks. "THEY'VE SEEN the light and are doing the right Nordby said. "The quicker we can get these fil- ters all over the country the better off we will be. They should be standard equip- the city paid from 10 to times the going price for the steel purchased. Little use has been found for the steel to date, and, con- trary to City Charter, the purchases were made without competitive bid.

"THE IMPORTANT thing for us here today, and for all Americans, is to pledge anew that pur country shall always remain strong and shall al- cials are not uncommon. "But settlement is expected today. I f. day of a general strike was a key factor in the negotiations. The volume of street traf- reased appreciably. In the streets chants of "Balaguer out" were mixed with others of "Liberty by Christmas." Balaguer's health reported- ly figured in developments of the last 48 hours. He was re- ported exhausted and suffer- ing from a mild kidney infec- tion. Persons close to him said Tie was on the verge of col- lapse after the Nov. 19 coup which foiled an attempt by two brothers of the late Gen- eralissimo Rafael Trujillo to seize power. Eyman Has MUd Heart Disorder FLORENCE Warden Frank Eyman was taken to Final County Hospital today suffering from a mild heart ailment. Sources said the warden was stricken sometime during the night. Hospital workers refused to say what the warden's con- dition is. His physician. Dr. W. P. Tucker, "could not be contacted. of the particulate matter in Tucson's air. It is the gaseous material in the air that causesr'lhe irritation. "Dust affects the visibility more than Nordby said. "We don't like it, but it's not nearly the irritant that the gases are." In most parts of the coun- try, the water vapor acts as the carrier for the air pollu- tion. Here in the desert, dust probably is the carrier, Nord- by said. THE ACTION of the auto- mobile makers came less than four months after Welfare Secretary Abraham Ribicoff warned the industry to reach a voluntary agreement before 1964 or face federal action. ELISABETHVILLE, Ka- tanga, The Congo UPI Katanga soldiers hit a low- flying United States Air Force plane with .rifle and machinegun fire today and set it' afire. The damaged plane, landed safely at Elisa- bethville airport and the crewmen escaped injury. .With the shooting, U.S. servicemen were brought under fire for the first time in the 18 months of Congo turmoil. In the only other in- stance of violence against American military men 15 U.S. Air Force technicians were beaten up by Congo troops at Stanleyville last year. Shortly after the shooting the United States called off its airlift of troops and sup- plies to the United Nations forces seeking to bring rebel- lious Katanga troops under control. THE BATTLE for the con- trol of the capital of the breakaway Katanga province raged into its third day with much of the fighting centered on a strategic tunnel control- ing the main traffic artery in and out of the city. In private advices to Katan- ga sources in New York, Ka- tanga's Foreign Minister Evar- iste Kimba said his troops had driven U.N. forces from the United Nations' headquarters in the heart of .Elisabethville and had scored "victory after victory." The word from Kimba was that the Katanga troops now controlled all of the city of Elisabethville. He charged that U.N. troops were shelling two Katanga hospitals.
