Sgt. Clark just completed a three-month training course at the F.B.I. National Academy at Quantico, Va. It was the 97th session for the Academy, and Clark was one of 249 graduate officers in this session. County, city, and state officers attended the training courses and came from all over the U.S. Eighteen officers came from foreign nations. Graduates of these training sessions now number 8100 in the U.S., and others are being trained at the rate of 250 officers every three months. Clark gave a brief history of law enforcement starting with colonial days. The F.B.I. Academy school started in 1935 and Hope Police Chief Alvin Willis attended a similar session in 1951. Due to increased mobility and population increases the training sessions got more sophisticated as new methods and equipment develop. In addition to the F.B.I. Academy, there is now mandated training in 44 states. In Arkansas, there is the Law Enforcement Academy at Camden. The session which Clark attended in Quantico was an eight-hour day, five-day week course that lasted three months. He was given training in marksmanship, sue of i weapons for riot control and all police duties, physical fitness training, fingerprint training, background investigation, and other subjects essential to police work. Clark was handicapped in giving a complete report because a power failure knocked out the lights for most of the luncheon period, and he could not read his prepared speech. The program was arranged by Leon Prescott, who introduced the speaker. Guests present were Mike Westbrook with Lowell Harris; City Manager Gerald Keith with Jim Cobb; and Larry Patton, son of Albert Patton. President will weigh request for pardons MRS. FLORINE BUCHANAN Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the First United Methodist Church of Prescott for Mrs. Florine Buchanan, 83, of Prescott who , died Tuesday. The Rev. Jerry Westmoreland and the Rev. Truman Warren officiated. Burial was in DeAnn Cemetery. Survivors include two sons, Paul Buchanan of El Dorado, Ark. and Donell Buchanan of Tulsa, Okla.; a daughter, Mrs. Archie Johnson of Prescott; two sisters, Mrs. Lucille Freeland of Hillsborough, Calif, and Mrs. Bernice Garreth of Santee, Calif., and four grandchildren. Cold front creeps in By The Associated Press Temperatures dropped sharply today as winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour pushed a cold front across the upper Mississippi Valley and central Plains. Overnight readings plummeted into the 40s in some areas while ahead of the front—through the lower Missouri Valley and west central Plains—more seasonable 70s were the rule. Light snow dusted the higher elevations in the northern Rockies. The cold front sparked thundershowers as it rolled across Nebraska, and showers and thunderstorms also splashed over parts of the Atlantic Coast and the lower Mississippi Valley. Dense fog hid a large section of the country early today, from southern New England to the lower Great Lakes and through the upper Ohio Valley. Fog and low clouds also were prevalent along the Southern California coast. For the rest of the nation, skies were clear and temperatures generally mild. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 36 at Cut Bank, Mont., to 94 at Needles, Calif.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford is not at present actively considering pardons for all Watergate figures, but will weigh any request for pardons which reaches his desk, House minority leader John Rhodes said today. Rhodes and Senate minority leader Hugh Scott, R-Pa., clarified Ford's Tuesday stand on Watergate pardons after meeting for one hour and 45 minutes with the President at the White House today. Scott read a presidential statement which he said Ford asked him to give to reporters. In it, the President said: "The announcement yesterday by Mr. Hushen concerning a study of the entire matter of presidential clemency and pardons was prompted by inquiries to the White House press office concerning Mrs. John Dean's reported statement in reference to pardoning of her husband and similar public statements on behalf of others. "Such a study is, of course, made for any request concerning pardon of an individual. However, no inference should be drawn as to the outcome of such study in any case. Nor is my pardon of the former president, under the unique circumstances stated by me in granting it, related to any case which is or may be under study." lawyers for the six defendants conferred for nearly two hours Tuesday to discuss a joint strategy in view of Ford's controversial unconditional pardon of Nixon on Sunday. The defense lawyers were elated at the disclosure by acting White House press secretary John Hushen that Ford has "the entire matter ... now under study." But prosecutors voiced dismay at the White House disclosure, as did dozens of members of Congress. "Pardoning all those connected with Watergate would complete the cover-up of the cover-up," objected Senate Democratic Whip Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia. House GOP leader John J. Rhodes of Arizona, who conferred with Ford on Tuesday, said he agrees with the pardon for Nixon but "it does not eces- sarily follow that a similar pardon should be issued to those individuals under the former president who participated in criminal activity." Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr., D- N.C., who headed a Senate committee investigation of the Watergate scandal, said: "I can't imagine that he could possibly make such a mockery of the principle of equal justice under law by pardoning these men who undertook to steal from the American people their right to a free election...." House Speaker Carl Albert of Oklahoma said such pardons would "be viewed as an abuse of presidential power." "Where would he stop?" asked Albert. "Would it mean that all politicians in trouble would be pardoned?" Boswell (Continued from Front Page) platform. The committee, however, did approve a resolution saying it opposed raising the 10 per cent interest rate. Boswell said McLarty was well aware that the effort to pass the proposed usury amendment is the best financed campaign in recent Arkansas history. Boswell said the effort for the proposed usury amendment would be "disguised as an opportunity to continue to get installment credit when, in fact, the monied interest who are pushing for the passage of this amendment want to place in the hands of the Arkansas Legislature the right to raise interest rates whenever they see fit." McLarty responded that, if elected chairman, he would speak only to those issues officially endorsed by the party or to those issues "that are legitimately before the party." He added, "I do feel and have felt that we have a potentially serious problem regarding credit availability in Arkansas. I think the proposed constitutional amendment gives the people of our state the opportunity to evaluate uiis proposal." We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our friends, neighbors, and relatives for their flowers, food, prayers, and comforting words during the loss of our loved one. We would like to extend a special thanks to Drs. Forney Holt and George Wright along with the staff at Memorial Hospital and the Hempstead County Ambulance Service. The Bernice G. Hopson Family Tuesday's Kiwahis Club speaker at town and Country Restaurant was Charles Mitchell, District Engineer of the Arkansas Highway Department. Me was introduced by Tom Jackson who arranged the program. In his opening remarks Mitchell stated he had some good news, some bad hews, and some good and bad hews. The good news is that the Main Street project will be completed this year. The bad news is that present construction on Highway 29 South will not be completed this year, and the good and bad news is that when the present construction on 29 South is completed to a given point the department will immediately start construction from that point on the next section of the project further South on 29. Mitchell gave some interesting information concerning the Highway Department in general and its operations. The department is an employer of about 4,000 people, 33 of whom are resident engineers. There are 10 districts in the state with eight counties in this area comprising the third district. A documentary film of recent origin was shown, covering operations of the Highway Department throughout the state. President Gordon Renshaw reported that 642 plates were served at the annual Kiwanis pancake supper last Friday evening. In this connection the Kiwanis Club wishes to apologize to those who may have attended but turned away on observing how long the serving line vras and how slowly it was moving, necessitating a rather Jong and tiresome wait before they might have been served. The club is very sorry about this. They are most grateful for the support of the citizens of Hope and this area, and steps have already been taken to insure faster service at future pancake suppers. George Wright, Jr., formally inducted Bobby Embry into the Kiwanis Club. Jim Hayes, Tommy Russell, and Key Clubber, Tom Flores and Tim Boyd were guests at Tuesday's meeting. Sweeney Copeland, a former Kiwanian, and Freddie Verser were introduced as the newest members of the Hope club. Trial set for sheriff FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) Sheriff Billy Joe Holder of Searcy County is to be tried at Harrison Oct. 7 on charges of filing fraudulent income taxes. Holder, who has been indicted by a federal Grand Jury here, has posted a $1,000 bond. The indictment charges that Holder reported an income in 1969 of $6,148. The federal government contends that Holder's income was $15,838 and that he owes $2,243 in back taxes. In another count, Holder is charged with reporting a 1970 income of $7,931 while the true amount is alleged to have been $18,602. -Henry Haynes photo with Star camera KIWANIANS hear Charles Mitchell All Around Town .By The Star Staff.
