The melon, donated to the Junior Auxiliary by Lloyd, is being shipped to Mrs. Joe Woosley of Hot Springs, who was high bidder at a charity auction held at the annual convention of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries last May.

(AP) Friends of Alvin Tyger rallied 1,500 strong and signed their names to petitions asking Arkansas Gov. Dale Bumpers to show clemency for the prison escapee. Tyger fled the Cummins State Prison farm six years ago while skeletons of murdered inmates were being unearthed there. He said he had been threatened with murder by a trusty-guard made to look bad in Tyger's previous two-week flight. The fugitive married and took a job as a truck driver here. Tyger and his wife L'nda are parents of a 2-year-old daughter. His employer and friends say he's rehabilitated. But Arizona Gov. Jack Williams ordered Tyger returned to Arkansas Friday, in accordance with state law Arkansas authorities say he is not eligible for parole and can request executive clemency only after he is once again in custody. Authorites say he still owes most of a three-year term for a clothing store robbery and a seven-year stretch for another robbery, plus a concurrent three-year term for the previous escape. The escapee's lawyer, John Aboud ST., contends that Tyger may not have to return to Arkansas to be granted clemency. He noted that Gov. Dan Evans of Washington paroled a Georgia prison escapee. Aboud said he sent a newspaper clipping of that story to Gov. Williams along with a request that he reconsider sending Tyger back. "President Ford granted clemency to Nixon without bringing him from California back to Washington, didn't he?" asked. Aboud. Meanwhile, citizen groups headed by Mrs. Bill Fannin and Tony Jiacopelli have been gathering signatures on petitions since Friday, calling on Bumpers to grant clemency and "recognize that Tyger has been rehabilitated and proven himself an asset to this community." The Rev. David Sholin, chairman of the Arizona Citizens Committee on Corrections, started a legal defense fund and said his group will send an appeal for full pardon to Bumpers. Jiacopelli's group held a rally Sunday at Palo Verde High School and announced that 1,500 signatures had been obtained. Aboud said he was doing legal homework over the Labor Day weekend and hoped to delay Tyger's return to Arkansas by two or three months. But Tyger says he may be back in Arkansas by Tuesday. "He's working hard, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed," said Tyger. "It's hard to believe the people will support us like this. These days a man doesn't even know his neighbor. Just saying thank you to everybody doesn't seem like enough." School enrollments lower, costs higher WASHINGTON (AP) - Enrollments in the nation's schools and colleges will hit a four-year low this fall, but the costs of education are expected to reach a record $108 billion, the government says. U.S. Education Commissioner Terrel H. Bell, in a back-to- school forecast Sunday, said 1974-75 enrollment would dip by seven-tenths of one per cent below the previous year, continuing a trend begun in 1971. He said 58.6 million students would go to schools and colleges this fall. Despite that drop, Bell said, education expenditures are expected to rise by $11 billion, or about 11 per cent, over last year's $97-billion cost. Little Rock youth shot by officer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Ronnie Shipp, 17, of Little Rock was shot to death by a policeman Monday as the youth fled the scene of an armed robbery, police said.

They got into a parked car and tried to drive away, police said, but the patrolman who saw them leave the store cut off their exit path with his patrol car. The three then fled on foot, police said. The officer ordered them to halt, then fired a single shot, killing Shipp, police said. The other two surrendered a few minutes later, but their identities were not released by police.

Earlier reports estimated that 150 persons died Friday night and 150 more were injured when the train carrying vacationing Yugoslav workers back to their jobs in West Germany ran off the rails and overturned as it approached Zagreb station in northern Yugoslavia. AN OFFER HE COULDN'T REFUSE NUNEATON, England (AP) — A customer, lacking the full price of the auto he wanted to buy, offered Roger Hext a donkey as a trade-in.

Echeverria calls for Uib 9 laws MEXICO CITY (AP) - President Luis Echeverria of Mexico, where male dominance has been the rule for centuries, has called for the enactment of laws eliminating "any vestigate of discrimination against women." "It is necessary to break the barriers that impede women from achieving their total development within political, eco- lomic and social life," he declared in his fourth state of the jnion address Sunday. In the televised speech before Congress, Echeverria also called for an end to the economic blockade of C'uba, reiterated his refusal to negotiate with kidnapers and assured that inflation will not undermine Mexico's economic growth. The president took direct aim at Mexico's traditional machismo—male superiority—and declared that women ••must enjoy absolute equahu with men in the exercise of their rights and obligations " He said his government has prepared legislation tiecea:>ar\ for a "complete reuMon ut the federal laws" to eliminate sex discrimination. But ne said Mexican men and women must also "shake off the old mental strictures that have caused the current unjustified situation." Echevema made only brief reference to the guerrilla kid- naping of his father-in-law, Jose Guadalupe Zuno Hernandez, declaring that terrorism will not destroy Mexican institutions He stood firm on his policy of not negotiating with kidnapers. --Bi- a courteous driver. By FRANK CORMIER Associated Press Writer CAMP DAVID, Md. (AP) _ President Ford, enjoying his first weekend stay at this rnountaintop retreat for presidents, says of the place, "It's great." Meeting with newsmen and photographers Sunday, Ford also said that Camp David is "a nice place to work" and that he expects to return frequently, "particularly in the fall when all the leaves are turning." Mrs. Ford was even more enthusiastic, saying: "It's so nice up here, I'd like lo bring Ihc White House up here." "Don\ say that," her husband interjected. Ford spent a couple of hours working in his study at Aspen Ixxlge on Sunday afternoon, studying pending legislation and plans for a late September economic summit conference. He said he also brought with him option plans for granting conditional amnesty lo Vietnam war deserters and draft resistors. He said he would announce his action on this issue late in the week. The President took an evening swim in the pool near the flagstone patio at the rear of Aspen Lodge soon after arriving by helicopter Saturday and took another dip before breakfast Sunday. The President played tennis Sunday afternoon with his 18- year-old son Steven and later practiced his chip shots at a golf green near the rustic lodge. Here for the holiday weekend with Ford, his wife and son were 17-year-old daughter, Susan, and two friends of the younger Fords. The President and his family plan to return to the White House Monday night. He scheduled a helicopter round-trip Monday, September 2, 1974 flight there during the day, however, to sign pension legislation. The Fords posed for informal news pictures late Sunday morning — the first time in memory that a presidential family has done so at Camp David. To add interest to the pictures, aides arranged for the presence of a 10-week-old fawn being raised by the family of the camp's Navy commandant. Mrs. Ford fed the animal milk with a baby bottle while her husband squatted on one knee beside her. DISCOUNT WITH A DIFFERENCE Quality Is Firs' a? Safeway! Finding it hard to save money?
