Shirley's long career takes diplomatic turn By BOB THOMAS Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - Shirley Temple Black's carreer, which began con "The Good Ship Lollipop," now takes a diplomatic turn with her nomination by President Ford as ambassador to Ghana. Conscious of protocol, Mrs. Black responded to Wednesday's White House announcement with the comment that she was "deeply honored." But she would say little more about it until the Senate nomination hearing. "If confirmed by the Senate, I will move to Ghana with my family," she said by telephone from her Woodside, Calif., home. "We will maintain our residence in California and will return here after the assignment is over." The family consists of husband Charles Black; Susan, 26, Mrs. Black's daughter by her first marriage to actor John Agar; Charles Jr., 22, and Lori, 20, both university students. Black is president of Mardela International Co., a marine resources development firm. "The company does a lot of work in the Middle East, Yugoslavia and Central America, and his associates are based in New Zealand, Hawaii, Missouri and here in Burlingame near our homen" Mrsm Black said. "Charlie travels a great deal, so he might as well be based in Ghana as here." Now 46, Shirley Temple Black has been in the limelight for 40 years, achieving international fame as the most successful child star in Hollywood history. She delighted Depression-era movie audiences and later generations of television viewers with her performances in such films as "The Little Colonel," "Curly Top," "Wee Willie Winkie" and "Bright Eyes," vehicle for the song "The Good Ship Lollipop." She managed to bridge the awkward age in films like "Kiss and Tell, fhe Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer" and "Fort Apache." Her last movie was "A Kiss for Corliss" in 1949. She returned to television in a fairy-tale series in the late 1950s. Since then, Mrs. Black has devoted herself to politics and good works. She made a bid for Congress in 1967 and lost in the Republican primary to Paul N. McCloskey Jr. Would she run for office again? "If I were 18 and sure of everything, I would give you a definite yes or no," she replied.. "I don't have any plans. I prefer the world of international relations." Mrs. Black was a U.S. delegate to the United Nations General Assembly in 1969 and in 1972 she served as vice chairman of the United States delegation to the U.N. Conference on Human Environment in Stockholm. She was the first woman elected to the boards of directors of the Del Monte Corp. and Walt Disney Productions. Although she described herself as a believer in equal opportunity for women, she admitted that she has riled women's libbers with two of her remarks: "I was liberated when I was 3 years old" and "I prefer the strong arms of my husband."

The combined profit from the heifer and melons was $400 for the Junior Association. Ned Ray Purtle served as auctioneer. Doyle Shields, representative of the Ralston Purina Company, presented trophies to the winning individuals and teams in the cattle judging events. Trophies were provided by the Ralston Purina. Danny Joyce of Hope placed third in individual judging and a team that he served with placed second. Out-of-town guest included Bob Felton, manager of the Turner Ranch at Sulphur, Oklahoma; Leon Freeze, Turkey Creek Ranch, Sulphur, Okla.; John McKnight, River Stronger drug laws sought LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The Community Council of Central Arkansas annnounced Wednesday that it will seek legislation during the next session to tighten controls on the use of prescription blanks in a move against drug abuse. Some estates have required the use of serially numbered prescription blanks by physicians who obtain them in limited quantities from a state agency. This limits the number of prescription blanks that may be stolen and enncourages physicians to safeguard the forms. Prescriptions written on them also are said to be harder to alter. The council also will attempt to encourage pharmacists to maintain patient medication profiles as a means of spotting unusual drug usage. The council also will attempt to encourage the use of unit- dose medication distribution systems in hospitals and nursing homes. Council officials said they would ask the state for 40 per cent of the $409,944 sought by the Arkansas Drug Abuse Authority for the Pulaski—Saline metropolitan area for increased and improved treatment and rehabilitative programs. Federal money would make up the other 60 per cent. The council is the subcontractor for Metroplan to coordinate, plan, evaluate and provide data on drug abuse for the Arkansas Drug Authority.

Texas jail revolt ends AMARILLON Tex. (AP) Sheriff's deputies ended a 36- hour revolt by prisoners holding a hostage in the Potter County jail by blasting their way inside and shooting the rebel leader to death. The hostage was rescued unharmed. Darvin "Red" Meharg, 39, a former Wichita Falls policeman who had turned to crime, was killed on Wednesday as officers rushed the seventh floor of the jail after using explosives to blast the door open. Meharg was felled by shotgun fire and three other persons were injured in the melee. Captured unharmed were Meharg's four partners in the escape attempt, James E. Quinn, 23, an escapee from a federal institution in Florida; Kenneth Albert Oliver, 27, serving a murder sentence; James Petty, 26, convicted of armed robbery; and Barbara Thiel, 40, who had been arrested along with Meharg on robbery charges. Meharg and his confederates, armed with knives stolen from the prison kitchen, took over the seventh floor of the jail about midnight Monday when they overpowered guards Don Sidwell and Stan Snitker. They demanded a getaway car and $10,000 cash. Later in the day they released Sidwell, who had been injured in a scuffle with the prisoners. Sheriff T. L. Baker said his men moved in "when it became apparent that further discussion would gain nothing and, in all probability, might endanger the life of Snitker and other innocent people." •£•.
