Charges against Pfc. Junior W. Collins, 20, of Trumann, Ark., by American authorities were still pending. The Army said an investigation by German criminal police and American investigators was under way. German authorities have 21 days to take jurisdiction in the case. If they do not, prosecution reverts to the U.S. Army. Collins, assigned to the 1st Armored Division in the north Bavarian city of Schwabach, was taken into custody by Germany police Thursday, the day after Jorinna Kraus was found dead in a Schwabach street by an American cook on his way to work. German police said she was wearing a bra and a sweater. Her skirt and other underclothing were missing, police said. German police returned Collins to his unit after questioning him. The army placed him in pretrial confinement. Bumpers on pardon issue 13.90 17.10 113.00 Bomb rocks restaurant in Madrid MADRID (AP) - A powerful bomb rocked a restaurant only a few yards from police headquarters in the center of Madrid today. Witnesses said at least six persons were killed and between 20 and 30 were injured. Police neither confirmed nor denied the estimates. Some of the victims were believed to be police officers eating at the restaurant. Reports said two floors of the building collapsed into the basement and that a number of people were feared trapped. Police gave no immediate explanation for the blast. It followed serious shooting incidents in the Basque capital of Bilbao involving members of the Basque Land and Liberty guerrilla organization and rural police.

London, Philadelphia and Montreal since April 1972, says the Northern Affairs Department of Canada. LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Gov. Dale Bumpers said Thursday he had talked to no one since Sunday whose spirit had not been diminished because former President Nixon was granted amnesty from prosecution. The governor said he had talked to no one who wanted to see Nixon imprisoned, but said the American people "resent the acknowledgement of two standards of justice. "I think they resent having to pick and choose sides again just when they thought it was all over," Bumpers said at the state Chamber of Commerce community awards program. Bumpers also made a pitch for preservation of the environment, especially in rural states such as Arkansas. He said the federal government should make pure air and water standards a high priority.

Other volunteer workers will come from the Red River School, B&PW Club and the men's civic club.

Watergate cover-up trial will go forward WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica has decided the pardon granted Richard M. Nixon is insufficient reason to throw out Watergate cover-up charges against the former President's subordinates. Shortly before Sirica declared the cover-up trial would go forward, the White House indicated there will be no pardons for Watergate defendants while they still face trial. The Senate also voted 55 to 24 on Thursday urging President Ford not to issue further pardons until all the Watergate trials have been completed. And Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee said they favor having the spe- Obituaries LAWRENCE WHITEHEAD Funeral services were held Friday at 3 p.m. at the Central Church of Christ for Lawrence Whitehead, Hope Rt. 1 who died in a local hospital Wednesday. Burial was in Central Cemetery under the direction of Herndon Funeral Home. Surviving are his wife, Bessie Whitehead, Hope; three daughters, Catherine Burns and Maxine Burns, both of Patmos, Leola Hutson of Deweyville, Tex.; three sisters, Vera Spears, Deweyville, Tex., Venice Hutson, Texarkana and Ina Beavers, Hope; ten grandchildren; and three great- grandchildren. MRS. ERMA ODOM Mrs. Erma Odom, 88, died Friday in a Pine Bluff hospital. She is survived by one son, Everett Odom of Pine Bluff. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at Fulton in Union Church with burial in Memory Gardens under the direction of Herndon Funeral Home. cial prosecutor disclose the evidence against Nixon. But Chairman Peter W. Rodino Jr., D- N.J., said he does not agree with proposals to indict and try Nixon despite the pardon which precludes any penalty. Although Sirica rejected requests from three cover-up defendants for dismissal of charges against them, he in* dicated some sympathy with problems of a wave of pretrial publicity. The judge set back the start of the trial by one day to Oct. 1, so a new pool of potential jurors can be selected. Sirica had indirectly alerted a special group of 400 potential jurors that they would be judging the Watergate case. Sirica said because of publicity surrounding the Nixon pardon, the trial jury would come from a completely new group. Attorneys for former White House aide H.R. Haldeman had said the original group of 400 would have prejudged the guilt of the defendants, if only because they would have paid more attention to Watergate developments than other citizens. At the White House, acting Press Secretary John W. Hushen, asked if any Watergate pardons would be delayed pending completion of court trials, answered, "I believe that is true." One of the dismissal requests to Sirica was from former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell, who claimed to have "been subjected to the same degree and intensity of publicity that prompted President Ford's pardoning of Richard Nixon." Attorneys for Mitchell argued unsuccessfully to Sirica that a pardon for Nixon and prosecution for Mitchell "is particularly offensive to the American concept of equal justice. A similar motion also went to the judge from former White House aide John D. Ehrlichman. Thursday's Sale CATTLE: Estimated receipts 1373, last week 760.

Observers prefer man with good-looking wife PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) A man with a good looking wife rates higher in other people's eyes than a man married to a homely woman, two University of Pittsburgh psychologists say. Leonard Saxe and Daniel BarTal report, however, that the reverse isn't true — a handsome husband apparently won't enhance the status of his wife. Saxe and BarTal said in a report released on Thursday they showed portraits of various couples to a total of 128 viewers and asked them to try to rate each man and woman according to personality, success and social and economic background. The portraits were paired differently for different observers, with homely men paired with attractive women in some cases and the combination switched around in others. In every case, the observers were told that they were looking at a man and wife. The findings: —Homely men with good looking wives got the top ratings for income, job success and professional status. —When these same men are paired with homely women, their standing in the eyes of the observers dropped. —The lowest ratings went to handsome men paired with attractive women. —Good looking women fared better than handsome men. "Among females, an unattractive woman married to an attractive man is evaluated lowest on these scales, whereas an attractive female married to an attractive male is evaluated highest," Saxe said. "A Good Guy isn't hard to find! Just look under his white hat." You might just find a Good Guy like W.L.
