2nd Sausalito Fire Linked To Break-In

Heirlooms Missing After

Flames Doused In House

Fire broke out and a burglary was uncovered at the home of Robert L. Spiegl and R. John Hutchings at 156 Harrison street, Sausalito, at 4:35 p.m. yesterday— just 16 hours after a fire and burglary at Bauman Brothers and Dick Miller Associates shop at Sausalito yacht harbor.

Spiegl said today that at least $2,000 worth of heir­ looms belonging to Dr. Hutch-

Ross Trustees

Select New

Schools Chief

Ross School Board n umbers last night chose a new superin­ ten dent for the district: Donald D. Leister, 29. now principal of a school in San Jose. He will replace Stephen Pa- rodi. who will move to the San Anselmo School District as su­ perintendent on July 1. Leister now is principal of Jefferson School in the San Jose Unified School District. He has been with the district for six years and has been prin ­ cipal for three years. Leister and his wife, Shirley, have three young sons. He is a graduate of the Uni­ versity of California at Santa Barbara, received h’s master’s degree from San Jose State College, and took further grad­ uate work at Stanford Univer­ sity. He served with the 11th Air­ born e Division in Japan from 19 46 to '48 . and in Korea in 19 50-’51. Leister was chosen by the hoard from more than 7 0 can­ didates. Final selection w a s made from five candidates whom the board chose for in­ terviews. Parodi has been superin ten ­ den t for eight years. Previously he was principal of Park School in Mill Valley.

ings were burned in the fire. He estimated that about $500 worth of personal items were stolen. These included such things as a portable typewriter, camera, overnight bag. binocu­ lars and a clock radio. There was also Spiegl said, smoke damage to the basement storeroom where the fire took place, as well as loss in family books and papers belonging to Dr. Hutchings.

ARSON PROBE Fire Chief Mathew J. (Matts) Perry said it looked as if some­ one had entered the home, gone upstairs to pick up some articles out of Spiegl's bed­ room. taken the articles and. then upon leaving, dropped a match or a cigarette into the books in the basement store­ room. He said an arson investi­ gation was under way today. “We're going to comb the neighborhood,” Perry said. Police Chief Howard Goerndt said his department also has started an investigation. On an initial investigation, he said, it was hard to tell whether a fore- ! ed entry was made since fire­ men had to break a door to get in to fight the fire in what is called the old Shoobcrt house. (The home was once owned by Fanny Shoobcrt. who now lives in San Anselmo.)

DISCOVERS FIRE The fire was discovered by Mrs. Tom Mathews of 148 Har­ rison street at about 4:30 p.m. It was lucky the neighbor next door spotted the smoke.” Perry said, “or there wouldn't be anything left of the house.” There was no one home at the time. Perry said there was nothing highly inflammable, such as paint cans or oil rags, in the

f storeroom. S pi e g l , an employee of Schwabacher-Frey Co., S a n Francisco stationers, said many of the items destroyed were personal property very hard to be evaluated in money.” The firemen had the fire un ­ der control in 10 minutes. Chief Goerndt said today that “we are sure that it wa? burglary at the Bauman Broth­ ers and Dick Miller Associates shop at the yacht harbor, but we don’t know if the fire was set to cover up-for it.” The fire, which was estimat­ ed to have caused $45.000 in damage, broke out early yes- See FIRE, page 4




Light rain began falling in Marin before noon today, and the Weather Man pre­ dicted more of the same in­ termittently through tomor­ row. The showers were brought by a small storm curving in from the sea, the U.S. Weath­ er Bureau said. The forecaster said the snow line in the mountains would be at about 5,000 feet. Small craft warnings were flying on the coast for south­ erly winds of 23 and 34 m.p.h, and fresh southeast winds were predicted for the high mountains and inland valleys.

Brown Claims

He's Unable To

Save Chessman

SACRAMENTO Gov. Ed­ mund G. Brown today all but ruled out executive clemency that would save Caryl Chess­ man from execution next Mon­ day. I am constitutionally now prohibited f r o m extending clemency,” he said. Brown said he's still con­ vinced that Chessman is guilty of the kidnap-robbery-sex char­ ges which brought the death sentence 12 years ago. Some material has been pre­ sented to hjm this week through clemency secretary Ce­ cil Poole, he said. But he said that he finds it contains noth­ ing to change his conviction as to Chessman’s guilt. The governor, described by Chessman's attorneys as the prisoner's last hope, read to newsmen a section of the state constitution which says: “Neither the governor nor the legislature shall have power to grant pardons, or commu­ tation of sentence, in any case where the ?onvict has been twice convicted of a felony, unless upon written recommen­ dation of a majority of the judges of the Supreme Court.” Brown noted that Chessman had eight prior felonies; that the court twice refused to rec­ ommen d clemency. Under any reasonable con­ cept of what is intended by the Constitution. I am power­ less,” he said. (See story on Chessman on page 6 )

Neglected Baby Moved To Hospital

An eight-month-old San Ra­ fael boy, ill. bruised and neg­ lected in his squalid quarters, enjoyed his new “home” at San Rafael General Hospital today in a clean crib. Little Guy Fields, son of Richard and Diana N. Fields of 9 22 B street, was taken from his makeshift, arm-chair bed last night after complaints from neighbors. The case came to the atten ­ tion of police about 7 p.m. when a neighbor called to report that the baby was being neglected. Johnnie O. Howe, about 29 . of 9 22 B street, told Officer Leland Ahern that Mrs. Fields had asked him to care for the baby yesterday morning but had not been home all day. Howe said ne heard that the mother was at a Fourth street bar. Police said the child had large bruise marks on both sides of his face, is suffering from an ear infection and has a chest congestion. The infant was bathed and cleaned at the neighboring apartmen t of Mrs. Marie Jewel Van Winkle, then admitted to the hospital. Officers said the Fields apart­ ment was a mess, with beer bot­ tles and dirty linen and bed­ ding strewn about. The child had been placed in a large arm chair pushed against the wall to form a makeshift bed, the officers reported. Officer Earl Christensen said he received a telephone call this morning from Mrs. Fields, who wanted to know where her baby was. The officer refer­ red her to the probation office,

Fairfax Home Fire

Mr. and Mrs. Frank L Gardi­ ner Jr. return ed home this noon to find firemen fighting a blaze at their home at 220 Scenic avenue. Fairfax Damage was estimated at $ 7.000. Damage was to the second story of the house and the basement. The couple expect­ ed to spend the night at the home of a relative in Larkspur: Fire Chief Charles Thornton said a gas heater may have caused the blaze, but cause has not officially been established.

I told the ambassador that if he didri* resign today, we would move in and take over the embassy,’’ Koh said. “We had planned to (act) this morning, but we postpon­ ed action because of President Rhee’s statement last night” offering to permit new elec­ tions. Koh said the ambassador “re­ tracted his charges of Commun ­ ist instigation of the demontra- tions and promised to resign.” Yang confirmed this account of the conversation.

and shouted for Rhee’s resig nation. Rhee’s whole regime appear- j ed crumbling. His once trusted j lieutenants deserted him in the National Assembly and joined j in deman ds he quit. His police,; who killer 5 at least 158 persons! in a week of rioting, fled their! posts. His ambassador to Wash- ington quit un der fire.

RED MOVE FEARED And there were fears of some overt Communist move to take advantage of the uprising. In Washington, the United States summoned its Korean war allies to ar^extraordin ary session to discuss the possibil­ ity of a new Communist attack. The State Department also issued a statement calling for “adequate measures to redress grievances of the people.” It took note of Rhee’s declaration “that lie is prepared to resign.” Students who led the demon­ strations threatened new riot­ ing today unless Rhee leaves office and calls new elections. Police fired into their midst yesterday and killed 23 per­ sons, bringing to 158 the n um­ ber killed in a week of violence. JOIN STUDENTS The army, which had sup­ ported Rhee without firing on the students, began fraterniz­ ing today with the rebels. They joined hands in policing the capital city, which was quiet during the early morning but still un der martial law and tense. Today was one of the darkest in the career of Rhee, who was reported to have left his presi­ dential palace while he made up his mind whether to quit at once or to hold onto power. The only out appeared for him to resign, call new presi­ dential elections and then run again for the presidency. Some of the student demonstrators said they would vote for him— that their protests were not against Rhee the man but against the graft and corrup­ tion in his government. It was one of history's great­ est unarmed revolutions and all indications were it had won.

U.S. Summons

Korean War

Allies To Talks

WASHINGTON (UPD T h e United States today called for early action by Korean Presi­ dent Syngman Rhee to “re­ dress the grievances of the Korean people.”

It also summon ed its Kor­ ean war allies into an extra­ ordinary session to discuss the possibility of a Communist at­ tack against troubled Southern Korea.

15 NATIONS State Department press offi­ cer Lincoln White said repre­ sentatives here of the 15 na­ tions which fought un der the United Nations ban n er in Kor­ ea had been summoned to a session at the State Depart­ ment “to discuss the situation in Korea,” including its mili­ tary implications.

Other officials said the 16 countries would talk about dan ­ ger that Communist forces in North Korea might be tempted to intervene again in the south because of the political chaos there.

READY TO RESIGN White, noting that Rhee has “indicated that he is prepared to resign” and "has promised to hold new elections, said:

“We are naturally following these developments closely in the hope that adequate meas­ ures will be taken to redress grievances of the people. Lat­ est press reports from Seoul, however, indicate that demon­ strations against the govern­ ment are continuing.”

White added un der question­ ing that the United States was hoping for quick action by Rhee. But he declined to elab­ orate on the “adequate meas­ ures” it wants him to take. J o r Setter Cd uca tich

Newcomers To State Amazed At

Multiplicity Of School Districts

(This is the second of a series of articles on .Marin County’s school district setup and possibilities for revamp­ ing it.)


There are 29 school districts in Marin. There is one junior college district. There are high school districts and elemen­ tary districts. Only one No­ vato— is unified. Some of them are called union districts, some have the word “joint” in their names. Newcomers to California are mystified. Many of them come from states where one superin­ tendent and one school board operate a school system like that in Novato composed of kindergarten through grade 12. The only way such a system can be achieved in California is through unification. A uni­ fied system even can include a junior college.

A school district is a kind

of municipality. The govern­ ing board of a school district sets up and adopts budgets and collects taxes or has some other agency collect for it. The boards are made up of people who are elected on the public ballot And they set the policy un der which a district is to operate, and hire and fire personnel from ad­ ministrators to janitors.

When two like districts join, the resultant district is called a union district. If a single dis­ trict takes in areas in two or more counties it is a joint dis­ trict. A n umber of elementary districts, for example, could join together and become a union elementary school dis­ trict. Also they could be brought together to form a union high school district, as is the case of the Tamalpais Union High School District. The Tamalpais Union High School District has within its boundaries 12 e l e m e a t a r y

school districts. If these dis­ tricts were eliminated, their boards wiped out, an d the whole district placed un der one board and administration, it would be a unified district.

Unified districts also can be formed, as was Novato, from an elemen tary district. Such a district then must erect a high school and offer high school courses.

But if the Fairfax an d San Anselmo districts, for instance, were to unify, the one new dis­ trict might take over Sir Fran ces Drake High School and would no longer be part of Tamalpais Union High School District.

In California, there also are city school districts. The only one in Marin is in San Rafael. Actually there are a San Rafael High School District and a San Rafael Elementary School Dis­ trict, governed by one board. Continued on page 2
