Hart Jr. of U.S. District Court issued the permanent order Tuesday against the manufacturer, A.K. Electric Corp. of Brooklyn, N.V., and 36 distributors and retailers. But he turned down a government request that he order the firms to take out paid television and newspaper ads. He said the "magnificent response" of the news media to his personal requests for coverage of the hazards made warning ads unnecessary. Authorities said the light poses an electrocution hazard because the user's hand can squeeze the soft plastic handle and touch metal electrical receptacles. They said one of the lights was believed responsible for the death of a Florida man last fall. The lights bear no brand name or other identifying marks Show tickets on sale Mel Tillis and the Statesiders, a musical group, will star at this year's Third District Livestock Show.

Maddox, 59, who led a 12-can- didale field in Ihe Democralic primary on Aug. 13, was defeated in the runoff on Tuesday by state Rep. George Busbee, who had the support of black civil rights leader Julian Bond and most of the party's moderates. "People are quicker to turn out to vote against somebody than they are to vote for somebody," a tearful Maddox told campaign workers., Busbee, 47-year-old majority leader of the Georgia house, said afler winning by a comfortable margin "I do think people have made il clear they want four years of sound, stable government." In addition to the Georgia runoff, primary elections were held Tuesday in North Dakota and Nevada. Maddox had served as governor from 1967 to 1971, then was elected lieutenant governor under a Georgia law prohibiting a governor from succeeding himself. The governor for the last four years has been Jimmie Carter, a moderate considered one of the leaders of "The New South" of white and black coop- eralion. Maddox' career was forged a decade ago when as owner of Allanta's Pickrick Restaurant he became a symbol of southern resistance to integration by issuing clubs to his employes. The clubs were used to drive away blacks and college stu- denls attempting to patronize the Pickrick. Maddox eventually sold the restauranl. In the Republican gubemalo- rial primary, Harold Dye, a re- lired Army officer from Atlanta, held a slim lead over Macon Mayor Ronnie Thompson, a law-and-order candidate who once gave "shoot to kill" orders lo his police in a crackdown on crime. In Nevada, former Gov. Paul Laxalt easily captured the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Alan Bible, who is retiring. Laxalt will face Lt. Gov. Harry Reid, who won a three-way fighl for the Democratic nomination. His main challenger was Maya Miller, a political newcomer who campaigned as an environmentalist. Rep. David Towell, Nevada's first Republican congressman in 20 years, easily won renomi- nalion. Two Democrats were locked in a close race for their party's nomination. In North Dakota, former Gov. William L. Guy won the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senator over Bismarck businessman Robert P. McCarney. He will face Republican Sen. Milton Young, 76, who is seeking a fifth term. Young was unopposed for renomination. In the Republican primary for North Dakota's only U.S, House seat, incumbent Rep. Mark Andrews won renomina- tion by a 3-1 margin. He will face state Tax Commissioner Byron Dorgan, who was unopposed in the Democratic primary. Carmen is expected to regain strength MERIDA, Mexico (AP) Tropical storm Carmen was expected to regain hurricane strength today as it drifted slowly weslward across the open .waters of the Gulf of Campeche between the Yucatan peninsula and the Mexican mainland. The storm's 175-mile winds were sapped to about 60 miles per hour as il crossed Yucatan. It remained stationary for several hours on Tuesday just west of Campeche. But forecaster Paul Hebert of the National Hurricane Center in Miami coiiunented: "It's not a question of whether Carmen will become a hurricane again, it's a matter of when. The winds are down only to about 55-60 miles per hour, and that's not far from hurricane standing." A storm becomes a hurricane whvn its sustained winds reach 74 tn.p.h. Hebert said if Carmen continues to move west, it would next hu another pan of the Mexican coast. But he said u was unpos- sible to yet say when or where this aught occur. He added that officials do not think the storm will affect Texas. Carmen did severe damage to the town of Chetumal, on the east coast of Yucatan, but no deaths were reported there or inland. So far the storm's only reported casualties have been three persons drowned last weekend in Jamaica. Meanwhile, the Miami hurricane center was watching another disturbance that was increasing in strength and threatening to become a tropical storm in the Atlantic Ocean. The tropical depression was located 450j.niles west of Bermuda and moving north-northwest at about 15 m.p.h. It was expected to turn north and increase its strength. The hurricane center said the depression's highest sustained winds were 35 m.p.h. with gusts of gale force mainly north and east of its center. If it continued to strengthen and winds reach more than 39 m.p.h., officials said, it would become Dolly, the season's fourth tropical storm. Weather warnings were issued northward from Cape Hatteras, N.C. calls for better world food planning WASHINGTON JAP) - Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz said today that the nations of the world should spend more lime talking about how to produce more food and less time discussing how to manage food stockpiles. As he has before, Butz pledged the United States will act to provide humanitarian food relief regardless of what world planners decide on the management of food reserves. He said the United States is committed to an internationally coordinated system of food reserves, but he called on food importing nations to plan better and develop their own reserves. He described speculation about a world food-shortage disaster as "apocalyptic nonsense," but said there is a "crying need" for more food production. Butz made his comments in a speech prepared for a meeting of nongovernment organizations in preparation for a United Nations World Food Conference in Rome beginning Nov. 5. He has been named head of the U.S. delegation. Butz said, "There has been much misunderstanding about what we mean when we say the U.S. government is prepared to participate fully in an international food reserve system. "We have never questioned the need for food reserves. What we believe, however, is that importing countries have to take a much greater share of the responsibility for carrying their own reserves than they have in the past." Ellis passes Bar exam Fred 0. Ellis Jr., has received word that he passed the Arkansas Bar examination. He has also taken the Tennessee Bar exam, but will not learn the results of those tests until October. Mr. Ellis, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Ellis of Hope, is a recent graduate of Vanderbilt University Law School. Butz frequently has spoken out against U.S. government ownership of large grain reserves. He says farmers and the private trade should control stockpiles. He also criticized those who see crop disaster and hunger in Africa and Bangladesh as a preview of things to come. "At best, these theories of climatic change and inevitable drought are without scientific foundation," Butz said. "At worst, they are apocalyptic nonsense, brought forth by observers who become interested in agriculture only when they can view it in terms of disaster." Obituaries MRS.

"Mutt" Jones of Conway said he was "being deliberately evasive" when asked Tuesday if he was considering resigning from the 21st District Senate seat. "I'm being deliberately evasive because I'm faced with some rather serious problems and those problems arise because of my own conclusions as to what is right and what is wrong and what is law and not the law and my own stubbornness and the problems of the people I wish taken care of 'the people in the 21st District," Jones said. "There is a problem there facing me to guarantee that those people will have a senator, and I'm not positive I can assure them it will be me — ergo the problem," he said.
