rainstorms in Southern California,
where mudslides and high water have
caused millions of dollars in damage.
"There's one storm right after the
other," said National Weather Seirvice
forecaster Al Bascomb. "There's so
many I can't keep track."
ABOUT 3,000 people were evacuated
for the second time in less than 24 hours
yesterday when more than 550 homes
were inundated with up to five feet of
mud and water at Point Mugu Naval
Air Station, a missile weapons test cen-
ter about 60 miles north of Los Angeles.
"Some people were just beginning to
return to their homes about midnight
when a sailor trying to tow a vehicle
from a ditch along the highway yelled
over the radio, 'Here it gomes again,' "
said base spokesman Ray Lucasey.
The wall of water left two-thirds of
the houses on the base awash and
flooded the base chapel, gymnasium,
and even some higher-elevation
barracks "within a few minutes,"
"HUNDREDS OF sailors have been
going back and forth all night in water
up to their necks bringing people and
belongings out of the flooded housing,"
Hollywood divorce attorney Marvin
Mitchelson saw his home in Hollywood
Hills left perched precariously on the
edge of a cliff created when the wet
hillside gave way and flattened another
house down the hill.
In Phoenix, only three of the ten
bridges were open across the normally
dry Salt River, which became a raging
torrent in its 20-mile run through the
metropolitan area of 1.5 million people
over the weekend.
But authorities said there were no
significant traffic problems yesterday,
partly because it was a holiday.
ABOUT 400 homes in the Phoenix
area were damaged in flooding along
with hundreds of streets and bridges.
No estimate of the damage was

WINAMAC, Ind. (UPI) - The Ford
Motor Co. executive in charge of the
1973 Pinto testified yesterday he was
not familiar with statistics which led
the government to ask the firm to recall
that car because of fuel system
In other testimony, a consultant to
the Big Three automakers said he
never cautioned Ford about fires in
rear end collisions because they are so
BOTH MEN testified at Ford's trial
for negligent homicide in the deaths of
three girls whose 1973 Pinto exploded in
flames when struck from the rear by a
Prosecutor Michael Cosentino tried
to get into evidence figures from a
study for the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration, on which he said
the agency based its recommendation
the 1973 Pinto be recalled for changes in
its fuel system.
Cosentino said those figures for 1973
cars showed Pintos suffered twice the
national average for deaths in rear end
collisions resulting in fire.
HAROLD MACDONALD, the
engineer in charge of Ford passenger
cars from 1965 to 1975, replied to every
question about the study, "I am not
familiar with those statistics."
Judge Harold Staffeldt instructed the
jury not to regard the figures quoted by
Cosentino as evidence. The prosecutor
told reporters he would try again to get
those figures admitted into evidence.
MacDonald, who said he and his son
both owned and drove 1973 Pintos, cited
another set of federal statistics for 1975-
76 comparing the Pinto to the avera
of all other cars in fatal accidents
which there was a fire.
HE SAID only 673 fatal accidents in
that period involved fires, and only 13 of
those fires were in Pintos. He said there
were 96 million autos in operation in
that period, of which 1,850,000 were Pin-
Donald Huelke, professor of anatomy
at the University's Medical School, w*
has been a consultant to Ford, Chrysler
and General Motors, said fires in auto
collisions are "extremely rare events."
He said in a study of more than'3,500
accidents he investigated since 1961, he
remembered only two fire deaths.
Huelke said his research was done prior
to the 1973 model year, so his data did
not include the 1973 Pinto.
HUELKE SAID Ford hired him frr
1965 to 1973 because "they wanted to s
what was happening in the real world"
in accident injuries. He said he lectured
Ford employees monthly, but never
mentioned fire in rear end accidents
because there were more important
things to talk about.
NEW SPRING COLORS NOW IN
Fresh out of the Seabees,
I sought out some t'op-flight
engineers who knew their
disciplines, and would share their
knowledge. And weren't afraid to
see newcomers take hold and
become project leaders.
I found what I wanted here at
Duke Power, so I became a
But what looked like a learning
experience has turned into a career,
with a lot of responsibility. Like in
1963, when I helped build Cowans
hydro generation for our system
and impound Lake Norman, with
its 550-mile shoreline. It's the
cooling pond for Plant Marshall,
our world-beating, high-efficiency
coal-fired steam station. And for
McGuire Nuclear Station, being
prepared now to go on-line.
You can discover career
excitement here, too. With
competitive salaries, great
benefits, a fine cultural calendar
and continuing education
opportunities at major colleges and
year-round golf and tennis. Or
fishing for the big ones (in Lake
Norman, of course).
