ten HOPE (AttK.) STAR Thursday, September in, 1974 Berry's World "/ think I can get Harold on grounds of mental cruelty — he's constantly cracking his chewing gum! State's first evader is seeking amnesty LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Joe Bradley, 22, formerly of Little Rock, has become the first Arkansas draft evader to seek conditional amnesty in the Eastern District of Arkansas. U.S. Atty. W.H. "Sonny" Dillahunty of Little Rock said Wednesday night that he and a federal attorney in California, where Bradley has been living recently, were "in the process of trying to get papers going back and forth." Dillahunty said Bradley had fled the United States for Canada to avoid the draft. Dillahunty said the attorney in California and himself were discussing the possibility of allowing Bradley to meet the conditions of amnesty — such as alternative service — in California so that he would not have to return to Arkansas. "Presently, I see no reason why I would object to it," Dillahunty said. ;u . 'Dillahunty said he thought Bradley had been arrested about a month ago in northern California, before President Ford announced his conditional amnesty program. Dillahunty had said earlier this week that there were 11 cases of indicted draft evaders in his district. Since then, he said, he has learned that an Army deserter is living in Pulaski County. Dillahunty declined to identify the deserter, but said he and the deserter were discussing the possibility of the deserter's seeking amnesty. Another draft evader, Stephen Lucas, 29, of Pocahontas telephoned Dillahunty from Vancouver, B.C., Wednesday to discuss the amnesty program. Lucas fled to Canada 5Ms years ago — the same day he took his military physical. Dillahunty said Lucas did not indicate whether he would accept the amnesty offer. "He didn't give me a positive yea or nay one way or the other," Dillahunty said. A man who identified himself as "Samuel Lucas," also from the Pocahontas area, told a newsman for KAIT-TV in Jonesboro by telephone Wednesday that he was undecided about returning. Lucas indicated that he might have some difficulty in meeting the Jan. 31 deadline to return to the United States because of his job in Canada. Dillahunty, interviewed late Wednesday night, did not have access to his office files and did not know if "Samuel" was Stephen Lucas' first or second name. Dillahunty said he thought there was a good possibility that more draft evaders would be returning home. "The conditions are neither honerous nor vindictive," he said. U.S. Atty. Robert Johnson of the Western District of Arkansas said the conditions for amnesty were similar to the conscientious objectors' program. Johnson said Judge Paul X Williams of U.S. District Court at Fort Smith already had set aside three convictions of persons indicted for failing to comply with provisions of the federal Selective Service Act. Those persons had performed their assigned tasks while on probation and their indictments subsequently were dismissed. Johnson said he could not say if or when he would release the names of alleged draft evaders in his district. He said one of the three was a Fort Smith resident. Edwin 0. Lewis PHILADELPHIA(AP) - Edwin 0. Lewis, former President Judge of Common Pleas Court, is dead at 95. Lewis, a leader of restoration efforts that helped change the Independence Hall area from a virtual slum into an attractive historical site, died Wednesday at his apartment. Among Lewis' survivors is his nephew, Pennsylvania Sen. Hugh Scott, the Senate Minority Leader. Farmer, cropdusters on trial for deer kill MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A $53,000 damage suit filed by the state in the 1971 herbicide poisoning of a herd of wild white- tailed deer in Shelby County went on trial in Circuit Court Wednesday. The suit accuses a Shelby County farmer and a West Memphis, Ark., cropdusting firm of negligence in using an arsenic-type herbicide on a 300- acre tract in Ensley Bottoms, where the herd was poisoned. John Thomason. a state attorney, said the civil action is the first case to be presented to a U.S. jury by a state for damages in the death of wildlife. After an all-male jury was empaneled, Thomason said the defendants applied the wrong type of herbicide for preparing the land for soybean planting and knew the mixture was a danger to area wildlife. Defendants in the suit are Charles S. Riggan, owner of Riggan's Planting Co., and Neil Dickey, Inc., a West Memphis cropdusting firm. Defense lawyers James Causey and James Allison contended their clients prepared the field for planting by customary farming methods and were unable to control the movements of the herd. Tennessee Game and Fish Commission officials found 11 adult deer in or near the field after the field was sprayed. The tract, in the Mississippi River floodplain in southwest Memphis, was sprayed June 10, 1971. Within a few days, state officials reported they had discovered the dead deer, some of them pregnant does. Thomason said expert testimony would show that each deer has a value of $1,000 and that probably three times as many deer as those found were killed by the herbicide. "The stae is asking for $33,000 in compensatory damages and $20,000 in punitive damages to see that this sort of thing doesn't happen again," he told the jury. Ford's address on world food problems stirs only timid hope AHA official challenges medical costs statement UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) — President Ford's address to the 29th General Assembly stirred only timid and guarded hope among proponents of international action to deal with staggering world food problems. The President promised the assembly on Wednesday that the United States would spend more on food shipments to needy countries and increase technical aid to their food production programs. He also said the U.S. government is ready to negotiate a world food reserve plan. But he pointed out that the problems of food shortages, oil prices and runaway inflation are all related. He warned the 137 other members of the United Nations: "Failure to cooperate on oil," food and inflation could spell disaster for every nation represented in this room. The United Nations must not and need not allow this to occur. A global strategy for food and energy is urgently required." Even the guardedly hopeful suggest that progress thus far ' has been minimal toward this goal of concerted international efforts to avert future calamity in much of the world. Attempts to produce concrete ; results toward curbing the j growth of populations got nowhere at the recent Bucharest conference, where bickering about ideology and national interests eclipsed the business at hand. Nations being nations, other conferences have run afoul of such things as jealousy over sovereignties, over ideology and over questions of who gives what and who gets what and how much. That's happening again in the case of fo,od problems. U.N. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim said this week that governments should display more give and take. LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Dr. Roger M. Busfield Jr., executive director of the Arkansas Hospital Association, has challenged a statement that medical care costs have increased 50 per cent since wage and price controls were removed. Casper W. Weinberger, secretary of the federal Department of Health, Education and Welfare, recently made the statement. ., Busfield of Conway called Weinberger's statement "a distortion of fact and not a true picture of the cost situation in the health field." Busfield said hospital service charges had risen 9.2 per cent in the year that ended Sri July, while (he consumer pried index rose 11.8 per cent—the steepest increase in one year since the year that ended in Septem* ber 1947. Busfield said Weinberger had based his statemtnt on the first four months after controls were removedj a period when hospi* tals were catching up with general economic inflation. Prices charged by hospials still were controlled during that period while restrictions on other industries had been removed. "It was either that or go bankrupt," Busfield said.,"Hos- pitals do not contribute to m- flatibn; they react to inflation as do all other consumers of the economy." Busfield rioted that in the year that ended in April, the food component of the Consumer Price Index rose 16 per cent. Dairy products rose more than 26 per cent, cereal and bakery products 34 per cent, "These are products purchased in great supply by hospitals, he said. "As another example, hospitals paid in June of this year 16.7 per cent more for goods and services than they did in 1973."
