The Sheriffs Office began the probe after, a San Diego man rented the Piper Chero- kee and said he would return it the next day. Two days later, the man called Aero In- ternational to tell them he had crashed two miles northwest of Perico, Sinaloa, Mex. Aerial checks failed to find the plane and Perico authorities said they were not aware of any plane crash. The plane had still not been located this morning. Lt. Dale Freeman is heading the Sheriffs Office investigation. not be justified under any cir- cumstance. "It harms too many inno- cent, said Arnold. "In this case growers, workers and consumers." Later he told the crowd of nearly 200 at the Stardust Hotel that the Chavez group is power drunk. "They believe they have the power. They don't negotiate. They tell you what you are going to do." Arnold continued to shoot holes in the UFVVOC's con- tracts with alleged examples of what the contracts limit and how they would affect the farmers' ability to govern and work his own land. "Chavez spends a lot of time talking about his non-violent added Arnold. "During this past summer we have seen his followers smash windows, wreck buses and as- sault workers." Odell Stafford, general man- ager of Pete Pasquinelli Pro- duce Co., was moderator of the information and organization meeting. Mel O'Campo, a former Santa Maria radio announcer who is now a public relations man' in the fight against UFWOC, gave an illustrated talk of when he knew Cesar Chavez and how his feelings have changed in the last five years. "My whole concept of the movement changed in about 30 minutes when 60 Brown Berets (Mexican militants) attended a rally in Santa said O'Campo. He added the Brown Berets followed the philosophy "of that Chinese guy, Mao." O'Campo went on to say much of the Chavez campaign had a Red (Communist) aspect. He used. an Un- American Activities report to document his allegations. "The Theatro Campesino and Chavez are said- O'Campo as he pointed out the Mexican theater group gave skit shows at the Chavez ral- lies. "They are too loaded with anti-American propoganda for me." He also charged it was the Anglos who were also behind the UFWOC issues. "The white-browns, I mean Anglos, are directing the said O'Campo and he mentioned Anglo names and followed each with a report of their al- leged subversive activities. He quoted Judy Graham as saying in Holister, Calif, that, "our participation in this movement fits into our bigger plan, a movement." O'Campo said when he was a child, of Mexican origin, Chi- cano was thought of as some- thing bad. "It would be like calling an Italian a 'wop' today." "We have a brown revolu- tion in the making, not just a labor he added. "When they use Chicanoism as a wedge it is a dangerous weapon." He also mentioned racial, economic, social, cul- tural and political factors as being stressed. "They use the feeling-'you can't make it be- cause you are brown." As O'Campo went even far- Yumo's KALJ-FM On Air at Noon Radio Station KALJ-FM re- ceived permission from the Federal Communications Commission to begin broad- casting at noon today.

Isolate the race, then unite the race, organize for action and build a revolution are the factors he gave. "In conclusion I want to yshow the American people there is something greater ended O'Campo. "They (UFWOC) have the words but I have the message."

Higher School Budgets Erode Tax Reform PHOENIX Home- owner benefits from Arizona's tax reform program are being eroded with each year by higher school district budgets, the state valuation chief said today. Arlo Woolery, director of the State Department of Property Valuation, said the state's school districts levied mil- lion in property taxes in 1967, the year before the reform was effective. In 1968, he said, the levy for school purposes fell to million. Sales taxes and other nonproperty levies made up the difference. In 19i69, said Woolery, school district budgets went higher, taking million from prop- erty taxpayers. "Things really came apart this year when budgets rose to to the point where it took million from property said Woolery. "If these in- creases keep coming like that, it will wipe out all the benefits the homeowner received from the reform." uiimiimiiiiimiiimiiiiiiimittWMNWim THE WEATHER SPEAKING AGAINST UFWOC Mel O'Campo, a public relations man in the fight against Cesar Chavez and UFWOC, gestures before a near full house in the Planet Room of the Stardust Hotel last night.
