Daily Report, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1970, Ontario, California Area Youths to March for By CHUCK FREADHOFF DMIV SIlM Wrtttr ONTARIO-UPLAND Walk 20 miles, are you kid- ding me? "It's for a worthy cause." "I know, but I'm just not in shape for a 20-mile trek through the streets of the West End." It seems like that would be a typical reaction when the Altrusa Club began planning their Walk for Spastics, to be held Wednesday. But planners of the walk Repor" Photo by Ralph Vigsers Wynne Andreas Is Ready. He Bought New Crutch Tips Libya, Egypt, Sudan 3 Arab Nations Plan to Unite By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Egypt is planning to feder- ate with Sudan and Libya to form "a nucleus for the unity of the Arab world" in north- east Africa. It is Cairo's-sec- ond such "attempt to put to- gether a greater Arab nation. The late President Gamal Abdel Nasser failed in the first attempt, a federation with Syria and Yemen that was formed in 1958. It .-existed mostly on paper, and was broken up by Syria in Sep- tember 1961. Egypt's official name remains the United Arab Republic, a remnant of that try at union. Nasser's successor, Anwar Sadat, President Jaafar el Numairi of Sudan and Col. Muammar Kadafi, leader of Libya's military regime, an- nounced plans for the new merger early today after a conference in Cairo. No target date was given for putting the federation into operation. "The Arab world is facing internal as well as external attempts to liquidate the re- volutionary it said, ad- ding that the confederation was necessitated also by the death of Nasser, "whose mere presence in the Arab struggle (with Israel) was a sufficient symbol of unity for the Arab peoples." Under the plan, called flie Tripoli Charter in honor of a conference Nasser, Kadafi and Numairi held there this year, a tripartite command will first consolidate the poli- tical systems in the countries and coordinate their policies, the communique said. The .command will set up three- sided boards to govern the confederation later, including a "supreme planning com- a national security council for defense, an imple- mentation committee to maintain national progress and subcommittees to handle political, economic, military and social questions. Observers noted that the boards will include repre- sentatives from all three na- tions and their decisions pre- sumably will have to be unanimous. Iranian Airliner Hijacked to Iraq TEHRAN Ira- nian petty criminals, extri- dited from Dubai to Iran for trial, overpowered three armed guards today and for- ced a twin-engine DC3 Iranian airliner to fly to Baghdad, airline officials said. The plane landed at Bag- hdad International Airport on its last drops of fuel and was surrounded by Iraqi troops. The six hijackers, who were not immediately identified, and tiie three guards were detained by Iraqi officials. The aircraft, an air taxi chartered fio Iran Airways, had been on a scheduled flight from Dubai lo Bandar Abbas on Iran's Persian Gulf Coast It was released by Iraq four hours later. Airline officials reported the plane, three crewmem- bcrs and five passengers, lan- ded in Abadan, on the Iranian border, an hour later. Iranian government offi- cials said the six hijackers were smugglers and petty larcenist who fed been ar- rested in Dubai. They said the prisoners were not politic- al criminals and added the government was pressing for their return to Iran. Earlier, the airline officials said hijackers seized the guards' weapons and, holding a gun at the head of Austra- lian pilot Sidney Jordan, for- ced him to divert the flight to Doha, Qatar, for refueling be- fore heading on to Baghdad. Officials at first refused landing permission to the air- craft, which was hijacked during a scheduled flight from the state of Dubai to Bandar Abbas, on Iran's Per- sian Gulf Coast But reports received here said authorities changed their minds when Australian Pilot Sidney Stro- dy Jordan told them he had "not a single drop" of fuel left He had radioed authorities in Tehran, "I have no choice but to use Baghdad Inter- national Airport and follow instructions." say they expect close to people to join them. One of the walkers will be Wynne Andreas, a junior at Ontario High School. Most people prepare for the walk by finding a comfor- table pair of shoes. Wynne prepared by buying new tips for his crutches. Wynne has been crippled from the waist down since birth. Yet his handicap hasn't deterred his desire to help those less fortunate than he. Money gained from the Walk will be used to help train those kids usually con- sidered beyond vocational re- habilitation because they have multiple handicaps, or those who simply can't afford the costly rehabilitative pro- cess. Those are the kids Wynne is marching for. "I'm doing it for the kids who can't afford he said. The march is being spon- sored by the Altrusa Club of Ontario-Upland. The club is dedicated to raising money for projects like vocational rehabilitation for the multiple handicapped. Each marcher, gathers as many sponsors as possible. Each sponsor pays the wal- ker for each mile walked. Wynne already has 18 spon- sors. The amount of pay he is getting varies. Most of the sponsors are going to pay him 10 cents a mile, but some are paying as high as 50 cents, and one man agreed to pay a mile. He hopes to have 30 sponsors by starting time. Notices of the march were sent to Chaffey, Ontario, Upl- and and Chino high schools. More than were sent out. The marchers will gather at Upland Memorial Park, and walk past Upland High School, into Montclair, by Montclair High School, swing south by Ontario High School, and up Euclid past Chaffey High School and back" to the park. Wynne, who lives at 423 W. Granada Court, Ontario, has talked some other kids into joining him. "I preached a whole thing to them about he said. The 17-year-old future min- ister isn't planning on just going for show. "I know I can go 10 miles at he said. He depends mostly on the strength of his arms. Ht says he can bench press IW pounds. Walkers will begin their trek between and a.m., and the Altrusa Club has instructed everyone to wear sturdy shoes. They didn't say anything about new cane tips.

Newsmen Say Nixon Nof Accessible Enough CHICAGO Nixon promised during his 1968 campaign to run "an open administration" but is not doing so, according to a journalistic society com- mittee. "President Nixon's use of the news conference provides little to inspire confidence that he actually believes in full and free accountabil- ity to foe says the Freedom of Information Committee of Sigma Delta OH The committee made its re- port public Saturday. SDX opens its national convention in Chicago Wednesday. More than 700 newsmen, educators and college journalism stu- dents are expected. The dele- gates will represent more than SDX members. The committee sug- gested Nixon hold televised news conferences every two weeks, and experiment with a monthly, nontelevised news conference with a limited number of reporters who could ask followup ques- cannot be done at regular news conferences. 'The entire level of open- ness of an administration is set by the frequency and na- ture of public meetings be- tween the chief executive and the committee re- port said. "For all his pre-election pledges to run an open administration.

The report said Nixon held 16 sessions that could be cal- led news conferences during his first 19 months in office, bat three of these were limit- ed and reporters usually could not follow the Presi- dent's replies with probing questions.

Hoff said the lawyrs will compare notes and suggest reform measures and ulti- mately draw up legislation to cure ills in the penal system. "One thing we probably will try to have changed is indeterminate Hoff said Sunday. "Instead of the judge sen- tencing someone to a min- imum number of years he must spend in jail, it may be better to impose no min- imum. It might be better to say to a prisoner, 'if you re- ally show some development, you can get out early-' "There's not much incen- tive for a man if he knows he must stay in jail for at least, say, five years." Other possible recom- mendations mentioned by Hoff included more psycholo- gical counseling, work release programs, free legal services an overall improvement of prison conditions. "Statistics show that some 80 per cent of all prisraj in- malcs have served sentences said Joseph W. Mullen Jr., president of the Young Lawyers Section. He said prison is a "school of crime" for inmates. McNeil Island was chosen for the first visit because of work already done there by the Seattle-King County Bar Association. Lawyers have been visiting there for a year along with law students from the University of Washing- ton. One of the victims was identified by sheriff's de- puties as Alvin P. Williams of Laguna Beach, the owner and pilot of the aircraft The sec- ond victim is still unidenti- fied. Witnesses said the Fairch- ild 24, a model on which pro- duction was .discontinued in the early 1940s, stalled at about feet and the pilot was unable to regain flying speed before plunging into the wash. U.S. Forest Service and Los Angeles County units con- trolled the brush fire in an area near the intersection of Mt. Baldy Road and Padua Avenue. William and his passenger left Brackett Field in their open cockpit aircraft about 1 p.m. with a flight plan to take them to Cable Airport in Upland where a 25th anni- versary air show was to take place. Cable officials, said thb morning, however, they had no idea where the plane was from, or whether it had in- tended to land at Cable Air- port Paul Cable said the plane was not scheduled to participate in the airshow. Following the crash, heat from the fire was so intense that rescuers were unable to enter the wreckage for three hours.
