(AP) — Gregory Shaddy has been ordered back to Larned State Hospital to resume treatment hospital officials had claimed he successfully completed following the murder of his parents. Judge B.

His first trial ended with a deadlocked jury. Tuesday's hearing on the Larned release request was sought by the district attorney's office under a new state lasv making possible a judicial review of such a recommendation. Russell Shultz, attorney for the 20-year-old Shaddy, said he may challenge the con- situtionality of applying the law retroactively, as was authorized by Kansas Ally. Gen. Curt Schneider in late April. "As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned emotional thing," said Shultz of the hearing. "The people don't want him out and the people got what they wanted. And that's kind of the reason Alexander Hamilton said: 'The people arc a beast.' " The testimony of Larned chief medical officer Dr. George Getz and two other staff members that Shaddy was cured and posed no danger to himself or others was disputed by the state's only witness, Dr. Karl Targownik, clinical director of the Kansas Reception and Diagnostic Center in To- peka. Targownik, who examined Shaddy May 24 at the request of Judge Bryant, said the young man could be dangerous to those close to him under conditions of stress. ''Under special circumstances, he might be dangerous to others especially in an emotionally tense, emotionally loaded situation," the psychiatrist testified. "I do not think the aggression would be directed at random," he later added. "I think it would be directed to someone to whom he is bound by emotional ties." He implied that those people coutd include Shoddy's fiancee, Toni fteiz, and her parents. The two had planned to be married later this year if his release was granted. Targownik said he feels Shaddy still does riot realize what he did to his parents and that if the full realization comes to him, the result could be explosive. "I think he should stay in the hospital, he should be observed, he should be tested with projective techniques," he said. "I am not sure what we're dealing with and what the treatment should be." Prosecutor Steve Robison criticized the work of Larned officials involved with Shaddy, stating they "lost their objectivity" because of the publicity surrounding the case. Shaddy also was not placed in a stress situation, Hobison added, noting that his schedule and lifestyle were so arranged that "no one at Larned knows how he reacts under stress." The assistant district attorney also questioned why Larned officials failed to perform any protective tests of their own on Shaddy to see if he was indeed cured of insanity. Miss Reiz, a Wichita optician, disputed the testimony of Tar- gownik, noting that it was "unfair" that he spent less than two hours with Shaddy and could still form an opinion. "As far as I can tell, Greg's cured," she said. "I'm not a professional or anything but I've known him for seven years. And he was with him for an hour and <15 minutes." . Nonetheless, she said "we really didn't expect him to be released," although she still contends Shaddy is cured and would not be dangerous to her or her parents. Miss Reiz, who said she and Shaddy had planned to move another city where he would change identity if he was released, plans to continue the weekly visits she has made to Larned for the past year. , As Shaddy was taken from the courtroom. Miss Reiz said to him quietly, "See you Sunday." Shaddy stood to inherit at least $60,000 from the estate of his parents, had the release been granted. It is possible that amount could increase because a probate hearing later this week will establish whether he is the valid beneficiary of other insurance policies on his parents. But Miss Reiz' father, John Reiz Jr., has noted that attorney fees and other trial expenses will consume more, than $60,000. R & J CONCRETE 416 So.

The House Ways and Means Committee tentatively agreed Tuesday in a close vote to allow a tax credit of up to $400 for the purchase of insulation and other home energy-saving devices. The 13-12 vote could be an-indication of more trouble'than expected for Carter's entire energy-tax program, parts of which the administration concedes already face strong opposition. Most Republicans and liberal Democrats opposed the tax break. At least three of the 13 congressmen who voted for it indicated their votes cannot be counted on when the proposal comes up for final consideration in the committee later this month. The vote was the first by a congressional committee on any of the tax portions of Carter's energy program. The size of the opposition was surprising because the insulation credit had been regarded as the part of Carter's plan most acceptable to Congress. Rep. Fortney Stark, D-Calif., urged deletion of the provision from the big energy bill. He said it would clutter up the tax laws and waste federal money on unnecessary subsidies. Rising fuel prices provide ample incentive for insulating homes, he contended. Rep. Al Ullman, chairman of the committee, said killing the provision just as the panel begins work on the Carter program would be a bad mistake and "cause all kinds of repercussions." The provision would let a homeowner or renter subtract from his income laxes 20 per cent of the first $2,000 spent for such items as insulation, weath- crstripping and caulking, storm windows and doors, clock thermostats, or efficient heat systems. The credit would be available only for expenditures made between April 20, 1977, (when Carter first announced his energy program) and Dec. 31, 1982. The maximum credit would be $400 for that entire period. The credit could not be claimed for insulation on newly built homes. The credit approved by the panel would be for a shorter period and for a lower percentage of costs than proposed by Carter, although the $400 maximum would be the same. Still facing action in the committee are three highly controversial Carter proposals. They include standby authority for a gasoline tax 'hike of as much as 50 cents a gallon, a tax on crude oil that could add 7.G cents to the price of a gallon of gasoline and a tax that eventually could be as high as $2,500 on cars that get poor gas mileage, coupled with rebates of up to $500 to buyers of fuel- efficient models. The standby gasoline tax and the tax rebate on fuel efficient cars are conceded to be in deep trouble in Congress. The crude ou tax is, by administration estimates, not quite so unpopular, •¿r -ir ir Waechter Buys House John Waechter has bought a new house al2502 La Guna St., in the Becker Addition from Mr. and Mrs. Maurice A.
