(AHK.) STAH Tnrsday, September Escapee faces two procedural hurdles LITTLK HOCK (AP) - Alvin Tyger, who escaped from Cum- Inins Prison Farm six years a«o, will face two procedural hurdles before his appeal for cleiiu.'ncy can be considered by (Jov Dale Mumpers. Clov. Jack Williams of Ari- /ona signed an extradition ordered to return Tyger to Arkansas Friday despite the con- lenlion of Tyger and his friends that he had been rehabilitated since he fled the prison in 1968. A screening committee at the prisons first would consider Tyger's request for clemency and make its recommendations to the sUite Board of Pardons and Paroles. Unless a majority of the five-member lx>ard recommends that the governor corn- mule Tyger's sentence, he cannot be considered for clemency by the governor. Robert L. Brown, Bumpers' legeil assistant and adviser on extradition and clemency, said that was the interpretation of Arkansas statutes followed in the past. Tyger, 25, was serving three years for a clothing store robbery, plus seven years for another robbery, and a concurrent three-year term lor a previous escape when he escaped, authorities said. He look the name of Bobby O'Brien, worked as a truck driver in Tucson, Ariz., married and fathered a child. Tyger's friends at Tucson conlinued a petition drive Monday to ask Bumpers to order a pardon for Tyger. Spokesmen for the petition drives said more than 2,500 signatures had been gathered by Monday. John Aboud Sr., Tyger's attorney, said Monday Ihe law used by Gov. Williams could be unconslitulional because il left France said pressuring plane deal WASHINGTON (AP) -i Defense officials say the French government is putting "staggering pressure" on four NATO countries as they decide whether to buy a new French or U.S. jet fighter. At stake are contracts potentially worth billions of dollars, prestige and influence in Europe, large numbers of jobs in two ailing economies, and each nation's hope for balance-of- payment benefits. The Netherlands, Belgium, Norway and Denmark are to buy about 350 planes to replace aging U.S.-built F104 Star- fighters. The French entry is the Mirage F1M53, while the United States has two candidates, both lightweight fighters competing also for selection by the U.S. Air Force. The U.S. planes are the YF16, built by General Dynamics Corp., and the YF17 of the Northrup Corp. A struggle for this business has intensified on both sides for months.. For the United States, a decision for the U.S. plane could re- i duce the cost of up to 600 light- j weight fighters for the U.S. Air | Force by permitting a wider ] spread of production and devel- | opments costs. I It also could open the way for j sales to other NATO countries. I For France, a decision for J the Mirage would help stave off | unemployment in its aircraft I industry and overcome balance J of payments problems growing I out of high import prices for ! fuel and other goods. I Late last week, the French I foreign ministry invited defense J ministers of the four countries I to Paris on Sept. 8. J Pentagon officials said the French have persistently emphasized to the four countries that, like France, they are small European nations who should stand with France against dominance by the United States. There also have been reports of strong French economic pressures, including warnings to Belgian businessmen that they would lose French orders unless the Mirage was purchased. U.S. authorities close to the situation say Belgium leans toward the Mirage, but that informal indications are that the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway favor a U.S. plane. ;hr iwnior liulc Choice in ihi; mjiiicr.

Brown sairl T>gcr coiilrl not be considered for clemency un- iil he was relunied to Arkansas Presumably, Tyger would ask thai his sentences he commuted to a term of years that woulrl make him immediately eligible for parole. The governor has the [xjwer to reduce his sentence and the Hoard of Pardons and Paroles then could grant parole. Brown observed that if parole were granted, an inte.r.sUite parole agreement could be prepared to allow Tyger to serve his parole in Ari/ona.

More donations to MD telethon LITTLI'] HOCK (AP) - Arkansans increased their dona- lions to this year's Jerry Lewis Telethon for Muscular Dystro- piiy. Last year, Arkansans gave a total of $(>0,000.

She says things like, "I like being a woman. We should be treated sweetly because we always are sweet." She also laughs a lot. "I always thought that when 1 was 21 I'd be a mature, sophisticated woman. But I still feel like a teen-ager," she giggled. Then, she turned to a middle-aged hostess and asked seriously, "Is it always like that?" The frosted blonde stands out in the crowd of Miss America contestants. She's the one whose name the local people mispronounce. "They call me Miss Our-Kand sas," she said. "I never heard it like that before." A street in this resort is spelled A-R-K-A-N-S-A-S and called Our-Kansas. But Miss Pope, a green-eyed beauty from Hot Springs, doesn't seem to mind. "The people on the Boardwalk said, 'Oh, Miss Our-Kansas, you're so pretty!' I love it," she laughed. Miss Pope has had enough marriage proposals to qualify her as one of the last of the Southern belles. "I've been asked at least seven times," she said, but that's not counting proposals like the one she got in the 10th grade. All told, the number of times guys have popped the question is "in the teens," she saicL "I seem to have dated the guys who always wanted to get married," she explained. "I date 'em for awhile, and then they say, 'Why can't we get married? 1 "Maybe it was just teasing around. They seemed to have meant it, but I don't know. I'm just a girl." Miss Pope attended the Gulf Coast Bible College in Houston in 1071-72, a school she says was unofficially known as the Gulf Coast Bridal College. "Most of the guys come out preachers. Most of the girls are in there to snag a husband," she said. She worked as a credit clerk in Houston for a year and has also been a secretary: She is crazy about football in general and the Razorbacks especially, and she gave a "soooeeeeey!" call to prove it. I-est anyone be tempted to make serious proposal No. 8, Miss Pope said she is in love now. Although it's not official yet, she said she may be engaged by Christimas time to a young construction company owner in her hometown. "I think I've found the right one," she laughed, "If he plays his cards right." When Miss Arkansas isn't being interviewed by reporters this week, she's often rehearsing for the pageant which will be climaxed with the crowning of a new Miss America Saturday night. She spent most of Monday practicing on the Saturday night production in which she and the other contestants will sing "Our Song Is a Good Song" and "The House I live In." Singing should come easily for Miss Pope. Her talent will be a vocal medley of "Friends" and "I'll Get By with a Little Help from My Friends." She rehearses again today before joining the other girls in a parade along Boardwalk tonight. Miss Arkansas got a chance to go fishing Sunday afternoon from a pier along the Atlantic Ocean. ••She really thought she had something, but she didn't" said Miss Pope's chaperoiie, Ann Peyton of West Memphis. "....If she did, it got away." Coon opposed to amnesty RECTOR, Ark. (AP) - Ken Coon of Conway, the Republican nominee for governor, sent President Ford a telegram Monday, expressing his opposition to amnesty for draft evaders. Coon said amnesty meant pardon and that there was no such thing as conditional of earned amnesty. Coon said the question involved was one of discipline. "These draft evaders and dissenters broke the law, and if we let them come back unpunished, we have not helped them," Coon declared. THANK Many of the new customers who come to our insurance agency do so because of the recommendation of a friend. Nothing is so powerful as a boost from one who has no ax to grind ... a person who simply likes our service. Unfortunately, some of you good people remain unidentified.
