HOPE (ARK.) SfAK Pag* Five Storm is blamed for fatal air crash MOUNTAIN VIEW, Ark. (AP) — Sheriff Flynn Norman of Stone County theorized Saturday that an airplane crash which killed four persons last week occurred after the plane went into a spin in a violent thunderstorm. . Norman speculated that the single-engine plane lost a wing and tail section before hitting the ground. Killed were Dr. Milton Stevens, 37; his wife, Mary, and their two children, Charlotte Lee, 12, and Sharon Louise, 8, all of Amarillo, Tex., according to Coroner Cecil Melton of Stone County. Of the plane, Norman said, "The wing tip was probably a half mile from the other part of it. We didn't find the tail section — just pieces scattered here and there. We had a lot of hail in that storm, and it was raining real hard." The crash site is about 10 miles south of hear near the Parma community. Bill Dollar of Parma reported the crash to authorities after he heard a loud noise, looked up and reportedly saw the plane fall from the sky. Dollar said the plane twisted as it fell and that debris was falling from the main mass. Norman said no flight log was located in the crash debris. State Police said Friday night it was believed that the plane was en route from Muscle Shoals, Ala., to Amarillo, but Norman could not confirm this. He said 'Federal Aviation Agency and National Transportation Safety Board investigators from Arkansas and Texas completed their investigation Saturday. Federal officials said Sunday they had no new information as to the cause of the crash or flight route. "The plane was torn all to pieces and the bodies were, too," said Norman. "We couldn't find a flight plan." ST. LOUIS (AP) - Judge Floyd R.

Morriss Henry of Fayetteville says several legislators are working on plans to organize a taxpayers' lawsuit seeking a temporary halt to the multimillion dollar Public Building Authority construction program. Henry said that when the state office building proposal first was presented to the Legislative Council, the issue was $15 million, but that it now had grown to an estimated $75 million to $90 million with cost estimates rising almost daily. Henry spoke at a luncheon Friday of the Downtown Fayetteville Unlimited. The 26 members of the organization present voted unanimously to approve a motion that the organization oppose further construction on the PDA project and support a movement to delay the project until it can be debated by the full legislature. Henry is a member of the Legislative Council which recently approved the PDA proposal.

If the boss would play golf instead of working at it he'd be less grumpy after a game. is going to court again CAVE CITY, Ark. (AP) — Joseph H. Weston, controversial editor and a would-be write-in candidate for governor, said today he would file suit against the Republican party to recover $1,495 of the $1,500 filing fee he paid to be a candidate in the May 28 Republican primary. The suit will be filed in Pulaski Circuit Court by Neal Sebastian of Little Rock, an attorney, Weston said. He said the fee was exorbitant and was "part of a general political conspiracy of both the Democratic and Republican parties of Arkansas to inhibit and discourage large numbers of citizens from exercising their constitutional right to be candidates on the basis of equality under the law for the sole reason that they do not have or cannot secure a large amount of cash in order to literally buy the right to be a candidate," Weston said. "A nominal fee of $5 is all that can constitutionally be charged for filing as a candidate for nomination by any party or as an independent candidate," he said. "Therefore, we are asking the return $1,495 of the $1,500 fee for which the Republican party, operating a monopoly, had sold me the right to be on the Republican ballot. "Besides that, the Republican primary itself as a contrived, unconstitutional and sloppy job," Weston said. Weston attempted several times this year to file as a Republican candidate. After first accepting his registration and filing fee, the GOP returned the fee and rejected Weston's candidacy. Plane missing with 7 aboard BELLEVILLE, 111.

Greeks and Turks are leaching the difference By PETER ARNETT AP Special Coff espondents FAMAGUSTA, Cyprus (AP) —The Greek cities and towns of northern Cyprus lie dirty and deserted iri the sun. The Turkish villages are gay with flags and smiling people. That is the difference between being liberated and conquered. For such Greek cities as Kerenia and Famagusta, the first and last places taken by the Turks in their month-long advance across Cyprus, capture has meant urban death. Famagusta on Sunday was so still that the plaintive meow of a stray kitten in an empty coffee shop could be heard for some distance.
