More than 150 Partido Accion Nacional leaders and supporters remained in jail in this Baja California capital city and at Tijuana. The arrests were part of an apparent move to lop off the leadership of an organization which in Sunday’s election handed Partido Revolucionario Institucional so stiff a challenge that soldiers were ordered to cart away ballot boxes in PAN precincts.
>> 40 years ago ? A six-year career ended in 20 minutes last night as the Imperial Valley College Board of Trustees quietly accepted the resignation of Jack Holley.
Holley, the man who built Imperial Valley College into a national basketball power, tendered his resignation in a short letter to board president Milton Carr, and after a brief executive session the board voted unanimously to accept it.
“I am not leaving for a better job and I am not leaving to go home. I am just leaving,” Holley said later. Although reluctant to discuss the reasons for his decision, he said he did not think he could be a part of a program directed toward intramural athletics.
