twelve HOPE (ARK.) STAR Wednesday, August 21, 1974 News Briefs FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) More than 100 witnesses from four states have been subpoenaed to appear before a federal Grand Jury for the Western District of Arkansas, which went into session Tuesday. A court official said 22 jury members are questioning witnesses from Arkansas. Court records show that subpoenas for witnesses were issued in late July for state residents and persons from Louisiana, Oklahoma and Colorado. UTTLE ROCK (AP) - Deputy Pros. Atty. Jim Patton of the 6th Judicial District said Tuesday that by the end of next week about 100 persons will be charged with food stamp violations. He said more than 300 separate criminal charges are now being compiled. The arrests will culminate several weeks of investigations by the prosecutor's office, Patton said. The case involves several large food stamp fraud rings in Pulaski, Perry and Lonoke counties, he s«iid. Patton said he thought the investigation would set a record in Arkansas for the number of violations and the number of charges. LITTLE ROCK - Richard R. Heath, director of the state Finance and Administration Department, returned to his office this week for the first time since he underwent surgery in June for cancer of the sinuses. He said Tuesday he still would do much of his work at home for awhile and would hold his weekly staff meetings there. Heath, Gov. Dale Bumpers' chief fiscal adviser, will appear before the Legislative Council Thursday to discuss the state's computer programs and to support the controversial Capitol grounds building program of the state Public Building Authority, MENA, Arkm (AP)—Glendal W.

(AP) - Apipes- moking bandit who made his getaway in a red Volkswagen apparently slipped across the Arkansas line after robbing a Mississippi Delta bank, authorities said. "We've pulled in our roadblocks. He apparently crossed the river," a highway patrolman said several hours after the holdup Tuesday at the Lula branch of the Bank of Clarksdale. FBI agents said the robber, described as "very calm," entered the bank, displayed a pistol and ordered the manager to fill a black briefcase with money. The man, 30 to 35 years old, then hopped into his car and drove toward the Mississippi River and nearby Arkansas, puffing on his pipe as he went. Authorities would not reveal the amount of money that was taken. MURFREtSBORO, Ark. ( AP) _ Dr. James W. Ballard of Birmingham, Ala., found a 2.05 carat at Crater of Diamonds State Park Tuesday, according to Max Love of the state Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department. Love said the clear-white, triangular diamond was worth more than $3,000. 10 oil companies agree to repay millions in overcharges By CHARLES J. LEWIS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Ten oil companies have agreed to repay some $103.7 million in alleged overcharges to their customers, the Federal Energy Administration reports. In addition, agency officials said on Tuesday that four other oil companies have been notified they are suspected of overcharges totaling some $90.7 million. The overcharges stem from violations of the FEA's pricing regulations. Of the 10 companies, four were ordered to bar price increases and to roll back prices and take other steps until over- charges totaling $58.2 million are made up. The FEA identified the firms as Ashland, Charter, Conoco and Koch. The other six companies, which the FEA refused to name, voluntarily agreed to roll back prices totaling $45.5 million without a formal order from the agency. These companies had been accused of illegally increasing diesel fuel prices and service station rents and incorrectly computing base prices, product costs and product-exchange agreements with firms in other parts of the country. An FEA spokesman said that in many instances the violations were inadvertent because of the complexity of the pricing regulations. The four companies suspected of overcharges of $90.7 million have been given an opportunity to explain their procedures. Prices effective through Saturday, August 24 in your Hope Kroger Store.
