ifefl erry's World © 1974 by NEA, Inc " 'Amnesty' is such an interesting subject don't you think so?" 4 Women escapees are back in custody CUMMINS PRISON FARM, Ark. (AP) — Four female inmates of Cummins Prison farm are back in custody after an unsuccessful escape attempt Saturday night. Tim Baltz, public information officer for the stale Correction Department, said the four inmates took another inmate hostage at knife point, but were apprehended on the prison's parking lot. No serious injury was reported. Baltz identified two of the four immales as Brenda- Kay Spencer and Lucy Smith, who are serving life sentences in the kidnaping and murder of a Hazen policeman. BalU said one of the matrons on duty Saturday night went to investigate after she heard a noise from the isolation section. He said the matron found inmate Wanda Forrester climbing through a heating vent running from the hall into her cell. The matron then went to summon help. Ballz said some inmates had broken a lavatory in the isolation cell. Miss Forrester, who is solving a 21-year term from Pulaski County on second-degree .murder charges, was us- iiiU a drainpipe as a weapon, Ballz said. She tried to hit the matron with the pipe, but missed, he said. While another inmate held the matron, Baitz said Miss Forrester broke into a cabinet containing the prison's kitchen knives and took the keys to the isolation cells. The woman also took car keys from the matron's purse, Baltz said. He said Miss Forrester then freed Miss Spencer, Miss Smith and Debbie Wiggins, who is serving seven years from Conway County for obtaining money under false pretenses. The four inmates armed with butcher knives ran through the dining room into the dormitory section of the pentitentiary, Ballz said. One girl in the dormitory was awakened and wandered into the dining room. The four in- rnales then took her as hostage and allegedly held a knife to her throat while they went outside. The escapees climbed the gale and were trying to start the matron's car when additional security guards pulled into ihe parking lot and captured them, Baltz said. The only injury reported was by one of the four inmates who scratched her leg as she climbed the prison gate. Jones says education primarily up to states LITTLE HOCK (AP) — John Harris Jones, the Republican candidate for the United States Senate, says education is the primary responsibility of the slates and Arkansas educators .should not expect him to seek large doses of federal funds to finance education efforts. Jones, who opposes Gov. Dale Bumpers, the Democratic senatorial nominee, made the remarks in a speech to the Arkansas Political Action Com- miilee for Education Saturday. Jones, a Pine Bluff banker, said ilie federal government does noi have the $40 billion a year io pay for school aid. The only way that could be done, Jones said, is for the govern- ineni to print more money and, thus, increase inflation. "We are in an economic crisis brought on by the spending and expansion of federal government sponsored by liberal Democrats," Jones con- tended. He said Bumpers had agreed to support the educators' goal of one-third of the cost of education to be paid by the federal government. Meanwhile Saturday, the suite Republican Executive Committee decided to seek financial support for Jones' campaign from the Republican Sen- atortal Campaign Committee in Washington. Bill Valentine, executive director of the state Republican party, said no specific amount of money was requested. He said Jones had not received any funds from the committee for his senatorial race yet. Valentine said Judy Petty of Little Rock had received funds from the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee for her race against Rep. Wilbur Dm Mills, D-Ark. Valentine said he did not know how much Mrs. Petty had received. Mississippi, Plains invaded by cold air By The Associated Press Cold air spread across the northern Great Plains and Mississippi Valley early today, sending temperatures to near- freezing marks over much of the area. But the National Weather Service said the latest cold snap would be shortlived, with rapid warming expected in the affected areas by Wednesday. Late last week a similar cold snap killed much of the corn and soybeans in the Northern Plains and Mississippi Valley. Early morning temperatures ranged from 19 degz'ees at Williston, N.U., to 87 at BJythe, Ca- lif. Light snow fell in northern Minnesota and rain was reported in upper Michigan, central New York and northern new England.

(AUK.) STAR Monday* September 30, ISf4 Popcorn Ed is saved by a nose Popcorn Ed's nose saves him from bankruptcy. .A customer unfamiliar with Ed may wonder why the popcorn vendor sniffs, fingers and jerks a dollar bill offered for a bag of popcorn. But it is the only way 80- year-old Ed Artis, known as Popcorn Ed, can be sure he won', end up with a cash register full of useless paper at the end of the day. The eyes behind his dark glasses were blinded 33 years ago, but Ed says he doesn't need to see to run the stand in this town of 8,000 about 90 miles east of Bismarck. •Tall and thin, he moves with confidence in the cramped 8 by 16-foot wooden stand which houses tt popcorh rnachihe, freezer, refrigerator and counter. ° -. ':V,V "1 know exactly where every thing is," said Artis* reaching unerringly for a popcofn bag. "I can tell real rnoney by the smell," he said, "fteal dollar bills have a kind *of gooey smell. It's hard to describe... "I feel the bill with my fift- gers and thumbs," he said. "There are fine pieces of silk in real money. You can't snap it in two. Fake money feels thinner — there's no fiber in it." The popcorn man says his expertise comes from 25 years of selling popcorn, candy and soft drinks. A wire mesh separates him and his customers, but it wasn't always that way. "Until a few years ago I had ah open counter," he said. "1 used to ha've the candy fight up there in front, it's just the last few years the kids started stealing." Camden man shot CAMDEN, Ark. (AP) Charles H. Ingram, 54, of Camden was shot to death at his home early Sunday, police said. A preliminary investigation showed that the shooting probably was accidental, but the in- vesitgation is continuing, a spokesman for the Camden Police Department said. Ingram was shot near the neck with a .25-caliber pistol. His funeral is to be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Proctor Funeral Chapel here. Burial is to be at White Church Cemetery. Most guerrilla groups expected to go along with peace strategy Associated Press Writer BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) ^ Mosl of the Palestine guerrilla groups are expected to go along with Vasir Arafat's new peace' ful strategy despite the opposition of the Popular Front for ihe Liberation of Palestine. The Popular Front, a Marxist organization led by George Habash, last Thursday withdrew from the executive council of ihe Palestine Liberation Orgah^ ization and repudiated the agreement made by Arafat, the head of the PLO and of the Al Falah guerrillas, to work with ihe Egyptian and Syrian gov- emrnenls,for a political, settle*. •.'".,, '. ../••*>••.£>.'•"•= •-.•.!,- fnetit with Israel. The Popular Front vowed to continue the "armed struggle" against Israel. Two small guerrilla groups, the Iraqi-backed Arab Liberation Front and the Popular Front — General Command, approved the PFLP's move and were thought likely to support it al a mtieling of the PLO's executive council in Damascus today. But they indicated they would not quit the council and instead would "work from inside." The other 11 guerrilla organ* izations in the PLO are all ex* peeled lo.stick with Arafat. The central council is ex- pected to endorse Arafat's mod' erate line. Arafat's' - position Was strengthened by the agreement of the U.N. General Assembly to debate the Palestine question as something more than a refugee ,queslion for the first time, and by the recognition Of the PLO by Egypt and Syria as the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people; WHAT WILL PLAYBOYS DO NOW ?
