Ronald Reagan nogiinated appeal court Justice William P. Clark Jr., his former executive secretary, today to the state Supremem Court. Clark, 41, has been an associate justice of the District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles since March of 1971. He will fill the vacancy created on the seven-member court by the death last week m veteran Justice Raymond E. Peters. Clark is a Republican who joined the Reagan administration in 1967 after ranching and practicing law in Oxnard. His nomination is subject to Nominee is a pilot and ranch owner LOS ANGELES (AP) — Justice William P. Clark Jr., newly appointed to Uie California Supreme Court, is a rancher, pilot and family man whose father and grandfather were law enforcement men. At 41, he is just a year older than the youngest jurist ever ai^ointed to the state's highest court. , Clark said he isn't sure how active he will be able to continue in a second major interest in his life—helping run his 900 acre grain and cattle ranch dn weekends in the Paso Robles area. Clark pilots his single-engine private plane to commute from his seat on the Court of Appeal in Los Angeles to the ranch, where his wife Joan and their five chilcb-en reside. . "The three boys run the cattle," the justice says with fatherly pride. The children are Monica, 16, Pete, 15, Nina, 13, Colin, 12, and Paul, 9. His grandfather, Robert E. Clark, served as sheriff of Ventura County and U.S. marshal for Southern California. His father was police chief of Oxnard and earlier undersheriff of Ventura County. Bom in Oxnard and attending a Catholic school in nearby Ojai, he aUended Stanford University and helped work his way through Loyola law school as an insurance claims adjuster. He met his wife while serving as an Army counterintelligence officer in Germany. He was appointed to the superior court ^n San Luis Obispo County in 1969 and to the appeal court two years later. An acquaintance familiar with his cour^oom in San Luis Obispo County termed him "very fair and very just. He felt that if a man committed a crihie he should pay the consequences." Price roll-back asked WASHINGTON (AP) — Ralph Nader and Consumers Union asked the courts today to roll back increases granted by the Price Commission for 1973 model General Motors and Ford cars. Last month the commission granted increases averaging $54 a car for General Motors and $62.55 for Ford. confirmation by the Commission on Judicial Appointments. The post carries an annual salary of $4fe;583, Peters was considered to be a liberal. Clark has written opinions as an appeal court justice that are considered to be more conservative. His is only the second appointment Reagan has made to high court. The first was his appointment of Chief Justice Donald R. Wright in April of 1970. Reagan said at that time, "It is my fervent hope that-under Justice Wright's able leadership, the court will return to a policy of judicial restraint." But Wright's court has issued rulings that have angered Reagan although he' has hesitated to criticize the chief justice personally. When the court struck down California's death penalty as unconstitutional, an angry Reagan said the court has placed itself above the will of the people.'' The majority opinion was written by Wright himself. Clark served as Reagan's cabinet secretary and then as his top staff aide. Reagan appointed Clark to the superior court in San Luis Obispo County in 1969, an appointment that was protested by that county's bar association. The bar association argued that Clark, from Ventura County, was not on a list for persons recommended for the judgeship. Clark was elevated to the District Court of Appeal by Reagan in 1971.Final word on Phase 3 this week? WASHINGTON (AP) — President Nixon is expected to make a final decision this week on wage-price controls for Phase 3 in his ^onomic stabilization program due to go into effect after April 30. Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegle-said Nixon received recommendations from his top economic advisers at a meeting today and said there might be an announcement on Nixon's decisions , later this week. In the face of record increases in this month's wholesale farm prices, however, Ziegler said he could rule out any price controls at the farm produce level. He said that despite the wholesale farm fwice increases, which showed the biggest monthly increase in 26 years in December, other economic indicators were viewed by the administration as indications that 1973 "should be a good year." Nixon imposed wage-price controls in an attempt to hold down inflation and the congressional authority for that action expires April 30. But Nixon has said that he intends to continue some form of controls and has been having his economic aides conferring with various branches of government, industry and labor for their recommendations.'

Witherspoon, a longtime Norco resident, said today he plans to donate money toward Councilman O.M. (Red) Taylor's trip to Sacramento next month. Taylor, a supporter of the adopted route of. Interstate 15 through Norco, plans to make the trip north to speak for the route before the" State Highway Commission. ' ALSO SPEAKING, will be either M. Bud King or Louis)deBottari, council members who oppose the -route and instead have pr^osed an alternate through the La Sierra Hills to the east. Mayor Bill Jarrett is also an opponent and Mrs. Nellie Weaver is undecided. "I'm pleased to know Taylor hasn^t lost interest in the people and will take'it on himself to go to Sacramento," Witherspoon said. "I'd like to see him make the trip and help the people because $11-12 million extra for a freeway may not seem like much to some but it is a burden on taxes statewide." The State Division of Highways has studied the proposed alternate route and says the cost difference would be about that amount over the adopted route. TAYLOR AND DEBOTTARI also plan to attend Thursday's commission meeting in San Bernardino even though the Norco segment of 1-15 is not on the agenda. Witherspoon also said any help from others would be welcome. At the February commission meeting, Norco petitions favoring the adopted 1-15 route will also be presented.

Because construction of new facilities is at least three years away, the committee also recommended that dis|trict authorities consider three stopgap measures during the interim. The committee's decisions were reached at the close of a three and a half hour session that developed into a parliamentarian's paradise during the final hour. AIR CONDITIONING of certain district schools to serve dn extended year program was the opening subject, but it soon got lost as committeemen turned to what was obviously the most most important matters. The shift developed as some comitteemen and persons- in the audience indicated unhappiness with the modified 45-15 program now in effect in four district . schools. ' "If anyone says that some kind pf extended year program will make a bond issue unnecessary, he's all wrong," said Dist. Supt. Charles Terrell in focusing attention on the subject of major importance. WILLARD LOVE, chairman of the committee and president of the school board, called attention to the need for stop-gap measures. "We need immediate relief, and bonds won't give that," he said. The committee began its study by listing eight alternatives on a blackboard - maximum utlitization or overcrowding of facilities, extended or split school days, double sessions, use of relocatable buildings, bonds and new buildings, organizational changes, increase of class sizes and the various types of extended year programs. It followed up by striking certain items from the list. Increased class size was the first item to go. Double sessions and extended or split day sessions followed. FATHER RICHARD HALL, pastor of St. John Episcopal Church, turned the thinking back to a bond issue with the remark, "We're not going to avoid new construction ior more than" Qfi^feST^SSPiT,""' "" and that means a bond issue." He urged the preparation of "as strong a ciase as possible" to convince taitpayers that bonds for hew construction are the ultimate solution. "Extended year pr^rams merely delay construction. I think we mi^t as talk about a bond issueheadH)n," he Committeeman cleon diers brought ^discussion to a head with a three-pronged motion: A. That the district go for a $10 million bond election in September, 1973, B. That the district use three stop-gap measures in the following order of priority - vse of relocatable buildings, overcrowding and organization changes. C. That the district study the implementation of some form of extended year program. The motion provoked a host of amendments. Jack Brown won approval of his motion to strike the amount of bonds and anticipated date of passage. Approval of his motion left intact the bond issue, but left the amount and date of election for a future determination. Rev. Hall then lost another amendment to the main motion-that the district abandon the 45-15 version of the extended year program at the close of the current school year. He charged that the 45-15 plan is more disruptive than other extended year programs and that it creates six "forgetting periods" instead of the one in the normal program. "I don't see any reason to continue it," he argued. But he failed to convince a committee majority. CONRAD FARR then moved an amendment to re-arrange priorities of Section B, but later withdrew it. EATHER HALL then won a motion to divide the pending question, separating A and B from C. He also woff approval" of recommending A and B to the school board. „ Diers then called for a Jan. 17 committee meeting, and moved Section C of the main motion be tabled to that meeting. His motion won ai^roval. The question at that meeting will be if the committee will recommend the extended year program to the board; and if so, which one is to have priority. ;
