Judge Ross Jones signaled the end of the hearing at Friday afternoon. He took the matter under advisement and is expected to present his find- ings to the Arizona Supreme Court when he finishes study- ing the case. It will be up to the Supreme Court, which or- dered the hearing, to determine whether or not Joseph Janovic Jr. and Lawrence Kruchten, both 25, should have a trial. To Death Bow The two were returned to Ar- izona State Prison death row Saturday morning. They have seen there over two years un- der the death sentence im- posed by Yuma County Superi- or Court Judge William W. Na- bours.

Judge Jones incidated he did not expect any more testi- mony would be needed. Candidate Culling Begun by State GOP PHOENIX (AP) Arizona's Republican leaders met for five hours Saturday in what State Chairman Harry Rosenzweig called an unprecedented at- tempt to unify the party behind a candidate for governor. The closed-door session drew more than 60 party leaders in- cluding county chairmen, state committee officers, elected state and county officials and Young Republican leaders. At least five candidates were said later to have made them- selves tentatively available for the race against Democratic Gov. Sam Goddard's expected bid for re-election to a second term next year. The fiver are Richard Klein- dienst, the unsuccessful GOP opponent of Goddard last year; Kep. John Haugh, R-Pima; for- mer Atty. Gen. Robert Pickrell, Maricopa County Juvenile Court Judge Jack D. H. Hays and former Mayor Sam Mardian. Wihdraws Marshall Humphrey, a Chand- ler cotton farmer and former state representative, was pre- sent but reportedly asked that he not be considered. Former Phoenix Mayor Jack Williams, although not present, was con- sidered another possible nomi- nee. The presence of Evan Mech- am, the Republican's' 1962 'cand- date for the U.S. Senate, lent party harmony to the meeting. Mecham lost the nomination for governor to Kleindienst in a bloody primary campaign last year. Mecham reportedly is interest- ed in running for Congress in the Third District if it is re- vamped to include Glendale, where he lives. Willing Judge Hays confirmed later that he is willing to be the GOP nominee for governor, but he said he would resign his court post before becoming a candi- date. "We can't afford the luxury of fighting among Rosenzweig told the group. Later, he said he was "extremely pleased at the good feeling we all left with Every- body spoke frankly and honestly without any recriminations over past differences." Added the party chairman: "We dispelled any idea that (Turn to Page 2, Col. 1, please) Nab Tacoma Kidnaper, Ransom TACOMA, Wash. 34- year-old 'carpenter was charged with first degree kidnaping Sat- urday after turning himself in and leading officers to of the ransom paid for young Charles Hyde 111.

At the present time, 111 classrooms in the district arc overcrowded. That is 57 per cent of all avail- able classrooms. The bonds, if approved, will cause an increase in the dis- trict's tax rate to pay off iis tended indebtedness of about 12'i cents per of assessed valuation.

A person is considered a real property taxpayer if he has paid a tax on real property. If either the husband or the wife is a veteran and takes his ex- emption for taxes, they are both eligible to vote if the oth- er mate pays taxes on the oth- er half of their community property.

(AP) The U.N. Security Council Saturday called for a vorldwide economic boycott ngainst Southern Rhodesia. The United States then announced hat President Johnson had or- lercd rejection of a shipment of tons of Rhodesian sugar low in transit from that coun- try. The announcement was made jy U.S. Ambassador Arthur J. Goldberg shortly after the council adopted a resolution toughening its stand against the rebellious white minority re- gime in Rhodesia. Do Utmost The resolution, approved by a vote of 10-0 with only France abstaining, calls on all states "to do their utmost in order to break all economic relations with Southern Rhodesia, includ- ng an embargo on oil and pe- roleum products." A proposal against recog- nizing or aiding the breakaway British colony passed the council by the same vote Nov. 12, the day after the declaration of independence.
