Yesterday's high, 91. VOL. 43 7 CENTS CORONA. CALIF. ' DlAt REdwood 7-1234 Eight in Jail Here Following Two Gang BrawlAge Range 20 to 34; Touched Off V^en One Hit With Rifle Butt A two-family brawl, reminiscent of "the Martins and thé Coys", with some outside assistance, Jodi?-ed seven men in the Corona jail ard set police searching for two others. Under arrest on charges of disturbing the peace are Joe L. Esparza, S4, of 139 North Merrill street; Jess L. Esparza, 21, of 344« Center street, Norco; Refugio L, Esparza, 20, of 117 Blaine street; Emllio A. Bccer-ra, 21, of 123 Vlctoiria avenue; Peter R. Maelel, 23, of 4M Joy street; am) Louis Aguirre, 20, of 315 East Third street. Joe A. Aguirre, 2«, also of 315 East 3rd street was arrested on a charg> of assault with a deadly weapon. Police said they would get out warrants for the other two men involved, who fled when police arrived. Corona officers said the fracas yesterday aftemoon was the result of numerous "small" incidents, in which members of rival gangs would find ffnother gang-member alone and "work him over." This ■•vas the first time both groups met in strength. Police knew at least one of the groups was spoiling for a fight, and at one time hauled six cars in a single file parade to thî roadside and shook the occupants down for deadly weapons or clubs. L iier, unloaded rifle was found being used as a club, but it was not in t>e cars during the search. Firing-pin The incident which touched off the combined disturbance occurred wJien Refugio Esparza and his car were forced to the side of the road. Using the unloaded .22 caliSer rifle as a club, one of his assnilai)ts, believed by police to be Joe /.fuir-rCj swung, tjiç gun into his : facé,-Jciocking out teeth and injuring his upper lip. Within minutes, other members of that branch of the Esparza family ^nd companions learned of the assault „and descended on the "Aguirre home at 315 Railroad street. While one officer was taking Refugio to the hospital for treatment, a radio call inform-crl him of the full-time fray on Railroad. He radioed two other officers for support and went to the scene. Much of the fight had been knocketl out of all t»"' combatants by the time the policemen arrived. While officers rounded up the brawlers, two fled, but police said they recognized them and will issue warrants. Once booked at the police station, the two sides were kept separate until they had an opportunity to cool off, cificers said. Then they were put together in the main jail with the warning that if they started the ruckus again, the police would finish it. The admonition seemed enough to keep any further outbreaks from occurring. Tlie combatants will be arraigned tomorrow in justice court here, closed today in. recognition of Veterans' Day, which fell on Sunday.' Judge W. .S. Caudill, who has had several of those presently involved in justice court before on similar charges, had warned earlier that he would show no Icniency toward repeated offenders. •aRobert Shipman, 15, Recovers Second Time i=rom Attack of Polio Twice stricken with polio, 15-year-old Robert Shipman has once again been released from the Sister Kenny Memorial Hospital in El Monte as a normal healthy boy, according to hospital authorities.

According to a CHP officer, Nelson-Weaver had told him earlier that his fool had slipped from the clutch at that moment and the truck jerked forward, throwing Ryan to the pavement. Head testified he asked the drier to stop, but he only/ slowed down. The CHP said ii\ian earlier report Nelson-Weavcir had said he looked back and saw Ryan standing in the road looking mad, and instead of stopping they just threw his packages from the truck cab. Ryan died in an ambulance cn route to the Riverside General hospital. Tlie nemrs of Hie ten bands choscnr »d take port in iN. second annwoi Corona InvitaHonal Band Jàfifbor«« wore rèvoéilkiìt roday.

P. Hand. Headed by a five-man Labor-Manàgement Committee, a concentrated five-day campaign was held to enroll employees of the company's Eastern division in the one-donation plan of giving. Final results of the campaign will be announced at an award-report meeting next month in Los Angeles, Hand explained. The Associated In-group Donnors program, acting as an effective single campaign to support health and welfare agencies, sets up a standard contribution .so that each ' enrolled employee gives at least ; 12 minutes pay per week to the plan. Contributions to AID are j handled on a year-round payroll-deduction basis. Through this plan, gas company employees support the Community Chest, Red Cross, Heart, Cancer, YMCA, Polio and other drives. "The AID plan not only results in a ;;rcat saving of time over conducting multiple drives throughout the year, but it collccts more money for charity," Hand said. Conducting the drive were Division Manager W. P. Hand, Campaign Coordinator W. P. Danforth, aiat Labor-Management Committee members Don Walters, Henry Robertson, John Andres, V. E. Camber and W. M.

Saudi Arabia Halting All Oil for Anglo French; Russia Renews TlireatsDAILY WAR ANALYSIS BY THE UNITED PRESS Sending the United Nations police force into Egypt might not settle anything after all. It might not even get Anglo-French troepi out of Suez. And it might leave the situation in the Middle East Just as dangerous as ever. The force to be led by Gen. Burns actually^ only a symbol of the moral force of the UN. The 6,000 troops from many nations will not be organized to resist even a moderate attack. They could be brushed aside in a few hours if either Egypt or Britain nnd France decided on new action. France still appears to want to seize the whele Suez Canal. Russia still seems ready to provide weapons and volunteers and to be encouraging Egypt and the Arab states to fight for total ictory. Also It appears President Nasser of Egypt la insisting that all the UN force be stationed west of the Suez Canal—while Egypt regains full control of the canal. Russia may be backing Nasser to the hilt in this stand. If Britain nnd France had to bow to that demand they would be admitting total defeat in their costly Suez adventure. So, they might refuse to get out on those terms. The tension in the wohid over Suez thus wouldcon-tlnue, and it might get much worse.Involve Injuries and Citations Five accidents clouded the traffic horizon In Coronn over the weekend, Two collisions involved Injuries and three drivers received citations.
