Willard of Mooresville was a troublemaker, according to Mooresville Police Chief Harold Kojak Martin, who has known Williard and his ex-wife girl friend, Marjorie S. Pollitt, for about eight years. WILLARD, a former maintenance man at Kendrick Hospital at Mooresville, has been unemployed for about a year. Mrs. Pollitt, a former waitress at Kelley's Drive-In Restaurant at Mooresville, just never could seem to decide whether they belonged together or not, acquaintances said. They were married and divorced twice since they met in the late 1960s, and although they shared a small house together in recent years, the relationship was stormy. "The situation between them was like a circus," said Chief Martin. "Howard was always in and out of the house. One day she'd throw his clothes out on the porch and the next day she'd be asking him to come back." THE AT-ODDS COUPLE Continued From Page 1 deacon of the New Revelation Baptist Church, 1806 North Alabama Street, and aside from his ownership of Johnny's Car Wash in the 2400 block of Central Avenue, he also is an employe of W & W Auto, 2600 block of Capitol Avenue. Something of an automobile enthusiast, Williams owns two 1970 Thunderbirds and he owes $6,000 on a 1974 Lincoln Continental. Probation reports from earlier arrests note that his family "has no real financial strain" but that Williams "appears to be an egocentrist." His two-page arrest record dates back to 1959 at Chicago, and continues through this year, when he was arrested on a charge of possession of marijuana. Charged with murder in 1975 (one detective has said it was self-defense), Williams was free on bond after his first trial ended with a hung jury. Annie K. Young Annie Young, police said, was a new name to them. She is said to have been Robinson's girl friend and, according to one neighbor, only recently leased her apartment on East 20th Street.

(UPI) Gov. Iteu-bin Askew has signed a law making Florida the third state in the nation to legalize the drug laetrile, billed by some physicians as "a hope, not a cure" for cancer. The law takes effect Oct. 1. All it does is let physicians and hospitals administer the drug at the request of patients, after telling them they might have a better chance of getting well if they undergo more traditional treatments such as chemotherapy. The law does nothing to make it easier to get a supply of the drug, which is made from ground-up apricot pits. It is still illegal to transport it into Florida because the United States Food and Drug Administration refuses to recognize it as a lawful drug. ror Ine gftirTaiinns. members o the Si Pierre family have been extending the hand ot friendship to Indianapolis and Greenwood area families in time of need We're proud of our reputation as family friends, and of our long association with Wilson Funeral Homes Thus, it is with great pride that we announce the addition of our family name to the respected Wilson name.

"I've always wanted him in iail 'cus that's where he belongs." Neighbors complained so much about the pair's running battles, he said, that finally the police stopped responding to the calls. "She'd constantly call us and ask to have Howard arrested for assault and battery and then she'd come down and deny the charges or post his bail," the police chief said. ALTHOUGH MRS. POLLITT had no criminal record, Willard was well known to policemen. He was sentenced to 1-10 years in prison in 1958 for grand larceny, and after serving 6V2 yars he was released. A few months later he was sentenced in Morgan County to 2-5 years for second-degree burglary. In 1968 he was arrested for safe burglary at Danville and got 2-5 at the State Penal Farm at Putnamville, and then earlier this year he was given 1-10 years for the theft of a $125 brass coal bucket belonging to Dr. William Kendrick, his employer. He currently is free on $5,000 appeal bond while he is fighting the 1-10-year sentence. trial, gave a dramatic closing argument which included re-enactment of Jackson's shooting. Scifres said: "If you love your homes, your family, if you believe in protecting the rights of society, give a warning to the criminals of Indiana and those of other states who may venture into her borders by bringing a verdict of guilty and not turning this poisonous reptile loose to add to his killings." The jury was convinced. Problems that still plague trials today were also aired during the trials of the two men 45 years ago. The long ordeal of choosing qualified jurors occurred in both cases. And then, as in spectacular cases today, venires of more than 100 prospective jurors were used. ONE FAMILIAR LEGAL problem arose the use of confessions. Both men had confessed to Indianapolis detectives but both claimed the statements were made under duress. The confession was not allowed to be presented in the Witt trial because, according to the judge, two detectives violated Witt's constitutional rights. "The evidence shows undue influence was used to get it, regardless of whether any threats, beatings or promises were given" to Witt, the judge ruled. However, a different judge ruled in the Hamilton case that detectives did not use undue influence and the confession was admitted into evidence. Both men appealed their convictions to the Indiana Supreme Court and the verdicts were upheld. Hamilton died in the electric chai" at the Indiana State Prison Sept. 26,1934, and Witt nn Nov. 24, 1934. Albert C. Hall Services for Albert C.

Burial will be in Bennett CemVfery "ear Rays Crossing. By ROBERT N. BELL The shooting death of Marjorie V. Jackson, whose body along with millions of dollars was found in her burned-out home May 7, was not the first violent death in the Jackson family. Lafayette A. Jackson, founder of the Standard Grocery stores here, who was Mrs. Jackson's father-in-law, was gunned down by bandits as they attempted to rob his main store, then located at 419 East Washington Street, May 27, 1931. He died the next day. Two men, arrested a month later, died in the electric chair, following highly publicized trials. They were Charles Vernon Witt, an escapee from the Kansas State Prison who was a convicted murderer, and Louis E. Hamilton of Iola, Kan. SO MUCH PUBLIC interest and publicity surrounded the case against the pair that the trial was moved to Lebanon. "Despite the crisp weather, a curious crowd of men, women and children gathered about the jail in the hope they might catch a glimpse of the prisoners," one 1932 account in The Indianapolis Star said. The two requested and received separate trials. Jury selection in Witt's trial began Jan. 12, 1932, at which time the state asked that the prisoner be shackled at all times in the courtroom because he was convicted of killing a Kansas sheriff. "Witt appeared almost defiant ... he seemed to regard lightly the charge against him," a story in The Star said. There was an almost circus-like atmosphere at the trial: "SPECTATORS CROWDED into the courtroom with such rapidity that Judge Police Time Ltd It Time Reported PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENTS Fridee 1:11 p.m., 10m Slrcft ana Bllmont Avenue; Abrenam Baher, 71, West lOltl Street, hip. 2:47 p.m..

Hornaday found it necessary to order the aisles cleared and roped off. Hundreds of men and women and boys and girls of high school age jammed together in the rear of the courtroom and many men and boys found places of vantage in windows," a Star account revealed. The state paraded witnesses to the crime before the jury, and even physicians who were with Jackson at the time of his death. One physician quoted Jackson as saying, "They shot me down like a dog." But the star witness was Jackson's son, Chester, who was the husband of Marjorie Jackson. CHESTER JACKSON "presented a vivid account" of the slaying. "The wit-' ness added a theatrical touch to his story by arising from the witness chair at intervals to illustrate better the manner in which the bandits shot down his father," The Star's account read. The two men contended they could not have committed the crime because they were attending a birthday party in Kansas at the time. The prosecutor presented a witness to the jury who said the party was held after the shooting. Witt was found guilty of first-degree murder after six days of testimony. On Feb. 3, 1932 he was sentenced to die in the electric chair. Hamilton almost lucked out. A trial held in July, 1932, ended in a hung jury. A second trial in November of that year, which included many of the same witnesses as in the Witt case, ended in a guilty verdict.
