( Hopes fading for Pasadena youth lost on Mt. Baldy

By TONY AULT P-B Staff Writer MT. BALDY With temperatures still dipping below freezing on the slopes of Mt. Baldy and winds gusting to 40 miles per hour, hopes dimmed today for a 16-year-old Pasadena youth lost since Saturday. The search for Christian Anderson of 2173 Crary St., Pasadena, resumed this morning with more than 25 members of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties sheriffs’ search and rescue team s and three helicopters planning to participate. Anderson became separated Satur­ day from seven of his hiking compa­

nions, all members of the Sierra Club, after they trekked to the club’s cabin about seven miles from the Snow Crest Lodge. When the hikers reached the cabin, light rain was falling, according to the sheriff’s department. “The hikers were wet, and decided not to continue because of the bad weather closing in,” said Sgt. John Von Coin, a member of the West End Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team. According to one member of the hik­ ing group, Marla Ross, Anderson wan­ ted to continue hiking to the top of Old Baldy. Miss Ross said despite the group’s warnings, Anderson would not return to the cabin with them. \ Von

Coin said that the other members of the group told Anderson that he was ill-equipped to handle the cold weather

and did not have enough experience to continue. Anderson, according to Miss

Ross, decided to continue and fhe group returned to the cabin. Anderson was last seen walking west towards San Antonio Canyon that leads to the top of Mt. Baldy. He was wear­ ing a blue hooded sweater over a light­ er blue sweater, Levis, hiking boots and a small day pack. Deputies said that Anderson left his heavier pack and down clothing in his car at Snow Crest Lodge.

A few hours after Anderson and the hiking group separated, snow began

falling, making the trails in the area wet and slippery. A cold wind followed, putting a layer of ice over five inches

of new snow. About noon Sunday, near­ ly 18 hours after Anderson was last seen, the Sierra Club members called the West End sheriff’s sub-station to report the missing hiker. Lt. Thomas Wickham, search co-or­ dinator for the West End Search team, said Monday as the search was se­ cured for the night, Considering what he’s (Anderson) dressed in, things look pretty dim.”

Von Coin said this morning, His

only chance might be to crawl into a cave somewhere and start a small fire.”

Monday the hiker’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Anderson, were at the command post in Cow Canyon east of Mt. Baldy Village, anxiously awaiting any word from the searchers. Young Anderson’s sister was waiting at the Pasadena home, in case the lost hiker might call.

Von Coin described the terrain on the mountain Monday as being, “slow for hiking, with loose rocks, ice, slippery logs, and freezing cold.”

According to West End sheriffs de­

tectives, the young hiker had been a

member of the Sierra Club for about a year, and had been hiking for about

three years. The detectives said that young Anderson had only classroom survival classes and had in the past displayed some unpredictability. One deputy commented that they were af­ raid that the youth might try to hide from searchers if they got near. Today the searchers were planning to hike from Snow Crest Lodge to the Sierra Cabin and then into San Antonio Canyon in the hopes of finding the youth.

Unanimous Panel to urge confirmation of Gerald Ford

WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Senate Rules Committee voted unanimously

today to recommend the confirmation of Rep. Gerald R. Ford as vice presi­

dent. All nine of the members were pre­ sent and voted for confirmation, Sen.

Marlow Cook, R-Ky., said as he left the half-hour long private session of

the panel. Cook said preparation of the formal committee report would be completed over the four-day Thanksgiving recess this week, and the Senate would start debate of the nomination on Monday with a vote expected Tuesday. The committee action had been ex­ pected. Ford. 60, the House Republican leader, underwent four days of hear­ ings and extensive investigations by the Senate panel. Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W. Va., the as­ sistant Democratic leader, made the motion for confirmation and Cook sec­ onded it. Byrd said there was little discussion and what there was centered on his re­ port to the panel that two FBI reports on Ford’s campaign contributions that were not completed by the last commit­ tee meeting were now available.

The second child killed in Nfoore was found about midnight when rescue workers lifted an overturned mobile home, one of a dozen heavily damaged trailers. Forty-five of the injured were in Moore. Most of them were treated for cuts and broken bones and released from three hospitals. Another 40 mobile homes were des­ troyed by the tornado, undersheriff Bob I amb said today.

POMONA - The City Council strongly hinted Monday night that Po­ mona may move to extend its annexa­ tion potential over unincorporated county territory north to the proposed Foothill Freeway, contrary to a “gen­ tleman’s agreement” reached years ti.0 with the neighboring city of Clare­ mont. The Local Agency Formation Com­ mission (LAFC) will conduct a hearing Nov. 28 in Los Angeles on a sphere of influence” study of unincorporated areas adjacent to Pomona’s northern boundaries and surrounded by the cities of La Verne and Claremont. Designation by LAFC of an area being within a city’s sphere of in­ fluence is a preliminary step before annexation proceedings to actually in­ clude that area within a municipality’s city limits. * The council reviewed a 1959 joint re- soluiion with La Verne and a 1966 agreement with Claremont on future

siors favorable to milk interests. The New York Times reported, meanwhile, that an FBI agent alleged­ ly cannot verify that the $100,000 Re­ bozo returned to Hughes was the same money he received.

Young Kennedy gets his first exercise WASHINGTON (UPI) - Slowly working his way to recovery, 12-year- old Edward Moore Kennedy Jr. has walked for the first time with the aid of parallel bars. A spokesman for Georgetown Uni­ versity Hospital said the son of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., worked Monday in physical therapy using pa­ rallel bars for the first time since the amputation of his cancerous right leg Saturday. No further details were available, ex­ cept that he was in “excellent spirits.”

Between 15 and 20 trailers were damaged. Hail and heavy rains accompanied the funnel clouds to Kansas and Okla­ homa. Many rural roads in Kansas were impassable. Tornadoes tore roofs from homes and uprooted trees around the Kansas communities ot Hutchinson, St. John, Ellinwood and Seward. Fire Chief Eddie Manley of Ton­ kawa, Okla., said a tornado struck his community causing thousands of dol­ lars in damage. All the power lines are down,” he said. We’ve got trailer houses turned over, rooftops are blown away. Both city warehouses are flat on the ground and the city trucks are covered with bricks.”

common boundary lines, but rather than reaffirm those agreements, voted 4-0 to hold the m atter over pending a city staff study on specific areas Po­ mona should aim for. In the 1959 resolution, La Verne and Pomona agreed that the future bourda- ty line north of Foothill Boulevard which would divide the two cities would be Williams Avenue running north-south from Foothill to the \ng- eles National Forest. In the agreement with Claremont, Pomona said it would not attem pt to extend its’ boundaries generally north of Briarcroft Road and west of Wil­ liams. T h e proposed east-west Foothill Freeway would run further up north near the Base Line Road alignment. Councilman Adrian T. Wright said it could be 1C years or more before the freeway is built and spoke of the de­ sirability of Pomona having control over the freeway’s proposed on-an-j off­ ramps at Garey Avenue, one of Po­ rn o n a s main north-south arterial streets. Extension of the freeway from La Verne east through Claremont in the past drew heavy opposition in Clare­ m ont Wright said that in Pomona history, city leaders looked for any excuse to avoid annexing territory north of Po­ mona, adding that such areas would be suitable for executive-type housing. Councilmen were not specific about possible areas Pomona should include in its sphere of influence, saying they would prefer to wait for a city staff recommendation. Wright suggested as a "natural” boundary line the Thompson Wash, which runs in a northeast course from Foothill and Williams. When the freeway does come, Wright continued, the ramps at Garey could become one of Pomona’s main en- tranceways and land in the vicinity for shopping centers and other devel­ opments would be beneficial to the city. But Councilman R.T. French noted that annexation of inhabitated county territories would have to be put to a vote of the inhabitants, saying that the chances of this happening seemed slim. Before the council acted on the mat­ ter at its evening session, it heard from Public Works Director Ronald Kranzer, planner Sanford Sorenensen and water department Manager James Van Wagner at the council’s afternoon meeting. The three city staff heads spoke a b o u t the advantages and dis­ advantages of Pomona’s attempting to annex the northernmost areas from the standpoint of city services Pomona would have to provide. But Wright concluded that the advan­ tages to the city would outweigh the disadvantages from the standpoint of water services. Van Wagner said the

county areas involved were not serv- ic2d by the Southern California Water Co. French said he agreed with Wright that it would be to Pomona’s advan­ tage to have some control and said that rather than arbitrarily decide what specific areas should be included in the city’s sphere, that the staff look into this for a recommendation. Kranzer said that in the meantime toe staff could advise LAFC of possible council considerations.

Youth dies of burns; rearrest of trio sought

CHINO A 14-year-old Chino youth who police believe was set on fire in the restroom of a garage two weeks ago died this morning at Loma Linda University Medical Center, only hours after charges of mayhem and assault were dismissed against the three men accused of setting the fire.

According to Chino police, Rodney Almaguer of 13263 Fourth St. died at 8:10 at the hospital from bums over 50 per cent of his body.

Immediately after police were noti­ fied of the youth’s death, officers went out to rearrest the three men originally charged with mayhem and assault in the case.

The charges against the trio Jesse Alexander Ruiz, 23. of 13122 Ros­ well Ave.; Steve Edmund Lope?. 20, of 1448 Jacaranda St., and Rudy Arellano, 22, of 1337 Mildred St. were dismissed Monday following a preliminary hear­ ing in West Valley Municipal Court. Deputy Dist. Atty. Charles Wolfe told Municipal Court Judge Martin Hildreth that his office wished to withdraw the charges of mayhem and assault with intent to commit a felony citing a lack of sufficient evidence.

In the preliminary hearing a tape re­ cording of young Almaguer’s state­ ments taken at the hospital were ad­ mitted into evidence. The recording was witnessed by Judge Hildreth. In the tape, Almaguer said that he ran into the restroom of the White Garage, 13216 Filth Ave., trying to get away from the three suspects. He said he saw gasoline come from underneath the door and it ignited. Almaguer, on the tape, said his clothes caught fire and he heard someone kicking on the door. He said he began yelling for help and that Ruiz kicked the door open. A Chino fireman at the scene of the fire on Oct. 26 said that the defendants had made statements about the fire. The statements from the defendants given to the Chino firemen were not admitted into evidence. Wolfe said af­ ter the hearing Monday that without the fireman’s statements there might not be enough evidence to put the three defendants at the service station before the fire. Wolfe said that his of­ fice intended to refile the charges against the trio. Now that the youth has died the charges, could be amended to read murder.

Court knocks down Reagan welfare reorganization

SACRAMENTO (UP1) - Gov. Ro­ nald Reagan’s proposed reorganization of welfare for the elderly, blind and disabled has been scuttled by a court whose ruling could increase taxpayer costs by $324 million a year. In a sweeping decision, the 3rd Dis­ trict Court of Appeal said the plan to implement grant increases without leg­ islative approval was illegal and also violated a 1945 state law requiring min­ imum levels of state financial support for adult recipients. State officials announced Monday they would seek a rehearing of the case. A spokesman for Reagan ex­ pressed “confidence” the issue would be appealed to the state Supreme Court. As they have throughout the pro­ longed controversy, Reagan adniin-

istration officials sought to assure 500,- 000 aged, blind and crippled recipients that their January' benefit checks would not be cut back. In a oreliminary estimate, the state Department of Social Welfare said the ruling would run about $300 million more a year in state welfare costs plus undetermined local costs. Legislative welfare sources figured it would mandate $268 million more a year in state and local costs above what Reagan’s plan would have tota­ led. The California Welfare Rights Or- o-m.i.zation figured the sum at $324 mil­ lion over current levels. In an opinion by Justice Bertram Janes, a Reagan appointee, the court held that effective Jan. 1, $130 a month in federal funds would be added to the state minimum support level per

recipient —$320 for the disabled, $246 for the elderly and $252 for the blind. Reagan had intended to increase giants for the elderly and disabled from a current average $212 a month to $221, and to $237 for the blind on Jan. 1, the day the federal government takes over administration of welfare for adult recipients. The court struck down the plan be­ cause the legislature had not given Reagan the authority to act to plug Cali­ fornia into the federal system. It also said the plan violated existing law re­ quiring minimum state contributions of $122 for the blind. $116 for the elderly and $100 average for the disabled. The lawsuit challenging the plan was filed by nine welfare rights and senior citizens organizations. State Controller Houston Flournoy, a

Republican gubernatorial candidate and keeper of the state’s checkbooK, urged Reagan to forget further legal action and im m ediately call a special session of the legislature to head off what he called threatened “chaos.”

But Democratic legislative leaders

such as Assem blym an John Burton, D-San Francisco, were cool toward a special session. Burton said the court acted to “protect” welfare grants and the “need for legislative action is less urgent than otherwise would be the case.”

On the last day of the 1973 session, the Senate by two votes killed a bi­ partisan welfare bill authored by Bur­ ton that would have increased grants of the aged and disabled to $230 and of the blind to $255.

WASHINGTON (IP!) - The Senate has voted President Nixon the sweep­ ing powers he requested to deal with the energy crisis, and the admin­ istration was reported considering a plan to ban Sunday gasoline sales. The Senate passed the e n e r g y emergency bill 78 to 6 Monday. If ap­ proved by the House it would allow Ni­ xon to ration gasoline and other fuels, limit energy use by business, relax clean air rules and curb oil exports. Meanwhile, a cabinet-level admin­ istration task force, was reported by The Washington Post to have recom­ mended to President Nixon Monday that he ban sale of gasoline from 9 p.m. Saturdays until midnieht Sundays in order to discourage Sunday driving.

Case of devout mother of 7 changing into sexpot begins

SANTA ANA, Calif. (UPl) Jury selection begins today in the $1 million damage suit by a woman who contends that she was changed from a “devout Catholic mother” into a promiscuous barroom pickup because she was trapoed in a sauna by a broken door handle. Attorney' for Maria Parsons, 47, of Anaheim, said they expect to call about 50 witnesses in the suit against the Holiday Health Spa. Mrs. Parsons maintains that because of her experience, trapoed in the sauna for an hour and a half, she became a sexually promiscuous woman, who prowls bars in miniskirts, picking up strangers and having sex with them. Superior Court Judge William Mur­

ray Monday ordered jury selection to begin today after attempts at an out of court settlement failed. Mrs. Parsons is represented by Mar­ vin Lewis, the lawyer who won a $50,- 000 judgment in a similiar case, involv­ ing a San Francisco woman who said that a cable car crash increased her sexual appetite. Lewis said that before she was trapped in the sauna, Mrs. Parsons was “a devout catholic mother of se­ ven,” but that the incident caused her to develop separate personalities. One of the personalities is “Maria,” he said. She picks up strangers In bars. The other is “Betty," he said. She suffers remorse over Maria’s flings.

Spirit of America still there, 'explorers' find

XT. LOUIS, Mo. (UPl) Five young men retracing the 3,800-mile trek which took Lewis and Clark acre-» America’s heartland said a: the end of their five-month journey Monday that Americans h ave not been bowed by the problems of their leaders in Washing­ ton,

“They’re disgusted with Watergate, all right.” said Gary Kimxey of Inde- P ad, nee, Mo., “but the spirit is still there.” The five modern day “explo­ rer'“ left the Pacific Coast at Astoria, Ore., June 7 to re-enact the historic 1803 journey in reverse. They were out of touch with the news for days and even weeks at a time.

“We had been out for 14 days when I looked at a news magazine in Montana and saw something about Watergate,” said Mike Wein of Highland Park, 111. I asked somebody what it was, and he looked at me like I was a dummy.”

“When we got to Sioux City,” added Mike Cochran, 29. Grand Junction, Colo., “we found out we didn’t have a vice president.”

“That’s kind of ironic because that’s where Lewis and Clark asked a French trader about the state of politic' in the country,” Cochran said. But the five said they had the same optimism about the future of America that their earlier counterparts had af­

ter exploring the land and its natives. “From just reading about all the shocking events, you’d think America was about to fall apart,” Kimsey said. But we’ve met over 2,000 people— from bricklayers to housewives to gov­ ernors—and the attitude we’ve seen is one of optimism.” “People are very interested in histo­ ry,” Wein added, “in fact, they -were more interested in hearing about our journey than they were in relating to us the current events of the world.” The five paddled their kayak and two canoes through the Mississippi Monday to the levee below the Gateway Arch, where they were met b\ city officials, relatives and girl friends.

Clay Asher oi Twin Falls, Idaho, at 18 the youngest of the five, was pre­ sented with a bottle of champagne while Bob Miller of Albuquerque, N.M., was draped with a string of peppers by his mother.

While the nearly five months in canoes resulted in cramped legs, the tan, lean explorers said the hardest part of their journey began in Lewis­ ton, Idaho, where they left the boats for a 435-mile hike through the Bitter­ root Mountains.

They carried 65-pound packs loaded with freeze-dried foods and such neces­ sities as flour, sugar and peanut but­ ter. Edward not Wally s great love, biography reveals

Excerpts from the book, based on in­ terviews with the Duchess and her friends and aS'Ociates in many parts of the world, were published in this m o n t h s Ladies’ Home Journal. Martin s a i d Mrs. Simpson's chief hold on the then Prince oi Wales, in addition to showing interest in his work and bis comiorts, must have been se­

xual. He quotes a close friend, Lord Castlerosse: “She m ust have given him omething in bed that no other woman ever did. She must have made him feel more vital, more masculine, more satis­ fying.” This opinion was echoed by Lady Thelma i umess, one ot a number of older women with whom the Prince had atlairs beiore meeting Mrs. Sim­ pson. Martin ^aid Lady Furness told friends years later “th.a the Prince of Wales was a most unsatisfactory se­ xual partner” and described his prima­ ry problem as one of timing. “Walli' of course, had been married twice beiore,” the book said. “She had known many men, In her year in China, she had learned much about Chinese concepts of life and love. She knew what it was to be fulfilled.” The Duchess met Espil when she was separated from her first husband, Winfield Spencer, a Navy pilot who drank heavily and abused her. Martin FELIPE A.

said her great ambition was to marry the polished, dashing South American as soon as she could divorce Spencer but “Espil’s ambition did not include marriage with Wallis Warfield Sim­ pson,” He wanted to be the Argentine Am­ bassador to the United States and he would be,” he wrote. It would hardly help his career to marry a Protestant divorcee whose husband was still alive...One day he made it plain to Wallis: It was all o\er. Never had she been so crushed, so empty, so forlorn.” The Duchess, who had lived most of her young life on the bounty of wealthy relatives, tried a reconciliation with Spencer but finally divorced him in 1927. Shortly after she married Ernest Simpson, whom she had met in New York with his wife, from whom he sub­ sequently was divorced. Mrs. Simpson said years later that she had liked Wallis, who was “much more clever than I.” The book pictures the Simpsons’

married life in London, where Simpson * was in business, as happy and upward- directed socially. After they became part of the Prince oi Wales’ circle, Simpson chose to iade into the back­ ground of his wife’s life as the Prince spent more and more time in their home. His withdrawal from their lives was the only option he felt he had,” the book said, “...talking about his person­ al dilemma with a close friend, Sim­ pson confided he felt as if he was liv­ ing in an armed truce, ‘as if I was meddling in English history’.”

Martin said that when the Duchess was bore Bessie Wallis Warfield seven months after her parents’ marriage, her mother asked the doctor whether the baby was all right and he replied, “She’s perfect, in fact she’s fit for a king.” Martin said the Duchess first laid eyes on the Prince of Wales when he attended a ball at the Hotel del Coro­ nado in San Diego, Calif., where Spen­ cer was stationed, in 1920.
