Hightower, 76, of Little Rock Tuesday of attempting to induce an abortion on a 19-year-old little Rock woman Nov. 29 at his residence. A jury of six women and six men deliberated one hour before returning the verdict and setting Hightower's punishment at a $1,000 fine and three years in the state penitentiary. Judge Richard B. Adkisson set Hightower's appeal bond at $5,000 and allowed Hightower, a retired barber, to remain free on his previous $5,000 bond pending posting of the appeal bond. The woman, an unmarried student at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, had testified that she paid Hightower $500 to perform the abortion.

HARVIE ELLIS, public health vet talks to Lions Club Lions hear talk on animals and health The Hope Lions Club heard and viewed an excellenl program on public heallh at its weekly luncheon meeting Monday at the Town and Country restaurant. Dr. Harvie R. Ellis, publich health veterinarian for the Arkansas State Health Dept., was the speaker. Dr. Ellis has held his present position since 1957 when he came to Arkansas after completing a military career in the First Cavalry Horse Division (last user of horses) as a colonel in the Vet Corps. Dr. Ellis now works in the area of animal diseases that are transmittable to man. The emphasis here was on rabies. A movie was shown in which it was learned that domest- caled animals become infected with rabies virus from 'their skirmishes with small wild •animals like skunks, rabbits, :foxes, and others. Cats and dogs are most dangerous because they are more often in contact with people. Those mosl likely to become victims of rabid animals are children, postmen, and delivery men. In addition to the movie, slides were presented showing the scarred and mutilated faces of children who had been attacked by dogs. Dr. Ellis said there were 100 million cats and dogs in the U.S., all potential carriers of rabies, and that lesls on wild animals indicated 60 to 70 per cent of skunks, foxes, and raccoons tested positive wilh rabies virus. The program made a good case for a leash law in every city, and the speaker listed control vaccination, leash laws, elimination of stray animals, and animal control authority as legislation to control the danger of rabies. A strange fact brought out in the discussion was that mice and rats seem to be immune to rabies or that none tested had proved to be rabid. .. .. . , ,, , ,,,; ,-*».• The speaker was introduced by Barry Wilson, program chairman. Guests present were Roger Stockslager with Winston Davidson; Bill Byrd with Bobby Webb; Vince Cervera with Jim Gunter; Jim Caudle with Thompson Impson; Maynard Short with Ron Endsley; and Mike Westbrook with Lowell Harris. Ford administration ponders new gas tax, surcharge on utilities WASHINGTON (AP) — A stiff new fee on gasoline, surcharges on natural gas and electricity, and a tax break for insulating your home are among the energy saving proposals pondered by the Ford administration. Administration spokesmen said Tuesday that these and other ideas were being circulated among White House and Cabinet officials with the aim of sending energy-conservation proposals to Congress as part of President Ford's economic package. The proposals could come as early as next week, but spokesmen and officials said they were not yet in final shape and had not been approved by the President. Among the tentative propos- jils were ideas to require in- Tluslry planning for energy conservation, and to boost government publicity on fuel-saving methods. A spokesman for the Federal Energy Office said the United States would gain two ways from strong conservation efforts. They would allow a reduction of oil imports, reducing the outflow in ihe U.S. balance of payments. And they would "show the world we mean business" as the United Stales seeks to rally oil-importing nations behind a campaign to reduce denvind and force international oil prices down. Another FEA source said still more energy-saving proposals may emerge later when the agency sends its Project Independence policy proposals to President Ford in November. The spokesman and source provided these outlines of the conservation ideas under consideration for early proposal to Congress: —A conservation fee on gasoline, al 10, 20 or 30 cents per gallon. This would raise Ihe price al Ihe pump to as much as 80 cents per gallon, but at least part of the fees collected might be refunded to the public through the income tax system. —Owners of homes and commercial buildings might be allowed to purchase basic quotas of natural gas and electricity at normal prices; but graduated surcharges might be collected on excess use. I>arge commercial buildings probably could reduce their use of eleclricily some 10 to 20 per cent, the FEA source said. —Home owners who install insulation or storm windows might be allowed to deduct 20 to 30 per cent of the cost from their income lax payment. —Industries might be required 10 develop energy conservation plans subject to federal approval, but the FEA has not indicated how such plans could be enforced. Last winter's public appeals, followed by rising prices, cut energy consumption and the FEA reports that even now, instead of the usual annual increase, energy consumption is barely back to last year's level.

Bed-ridden woman dies in house fire LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The body of OHie Bea Reddicks of Little Rock was remoyed'Tues-'" day from the ashes of the tin- roofed house where she burned to death Monday night, authorities said. Pulaski County sheriff's deputies said the woman — bedridden fpr the past 30 years — died after a coal-oil lantern exploded and engulfed the house house in flames. Li. Gene Walther said Minnie Harris, who lived with Mrs. Reddicks, had to leave her friend behind when the one- room house became too hot. Mrs. Harris said she could not remember her own age, but she estimated that Mrs. Reddicks was 103, the deputies said. Walter said the structure was a mile back in the woods in the northwest portion of the county, inaccessible by motor vehicle. He said it had no modern utilities and the women depended on lanterns for light and the coal-oil stove for heat. Mrs. Harris told deputies that fire began falling around her everywhere after the flaming coal-oil touched off fires around the room. She said she could not reach Mrs. Reddicks, who screamed for help from her bed. Substitute CHICAGO (AP) — Plastics industry officials quickly denounced and filed lawsuits contesting new federal safety standards reducing worker exposure to vinyl chloride, a gas that may cause cancer. One industry official called the standards "economically unrealistic, technically unfeasible, politically motivated and medically ridiculous." President Todd C. Walker of the Firestone Plastics Co., a division of the Firestone Tire & Rubber Co., added in a statement Tuesday that the standard "puts the vinyl plastics industry on a collision course with economic disaster. More importantly, it throws two million jobs down the drain, according to an economic impact study made earlier ihjs year by Arthur Little & Co.," an industrial consulting firm. Assl. U.S. Labor Secretary John H. Slender, who had announced the new Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards earlier Tuesday, said some plants will have trouble meeting the tightened standards, but he added, "This will not cause the industry to shut down." The stricter regulations for vinyl chloride, a chemical used in numerous plastic products, would cover 7,500 U.S. plants with 350,000 workers. Present standards will remain in effect until January with a gradual, one-year transition to the tighter standards, Slender said. Slender said provisions would allow a company that cannot meet the standards to ask for a variance or a time extension. At least two industrial groups immediately filed court actions contesting the new standards. The Society of the Plastics Industry Inc., which represents more than 90 per cent of vinyl cloride and polyvinyl chloride producers, filed suit in New York asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for judicial review. A separate suit was filed by the Hooker Chemical Co., of Stamford, Conn. After several deaths from a rare liver cancer which were thought to be related to the handling of vinyl chloride were reported, the government in April ordered an emergency lowering from the then-prevailing limit of 500 parts per million to which workers could be exposed. Preliminary tests conducted in Northbrook, 111., later that month showed that test mice developed liver cancer when exposed to concentrations of 50 parls per million of vinyl chloride.

Under the stage name of Flore lie, she worked with well- known directors, including Jean Renoir, Fritz Lang and G.W. Pabst. erroneous teac hers are needed here LITTLE ROCK (AP) —News reports Tuesday that a key dairy industry official had testified thai Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., knew about a 1971 dairy cooperative gift to the "Draft Mills for President" campaign apparently were erroneous. The testimony, according to the Watergate Committee draft report, actually concerned a Hifl in June 1972. Mills has insisled thai he knew nolhing about dairy funds — legal or illegal — funneled to the draft effort in 1971 or in the early months of 1972, before he formally began to seek the Democralic presidenlial nomination. The news reports originated in ihe Memphis Commercial Appeal, which reported on the Watergate Committee testimony of Dr. George Menren, chief executive of Associated Milk Producers Inc. in 1972. The article said Menren testified thai Ihe AMPI political arm, CTAPE, made a gift of Hope Public Schools are in need of qualified persons to serve as substitute teachers. This is not regular work, but only to be on call as a substilule whena regular leacher is sick. Interested applicants should have a minimum of one year college education. Application forms for sub- stilule teachers are available at ihe school administration building, 117 East 2nd Street. $25,000 in 1971 to the Mills effort: thai Mills knew aboul it, and thai Mills lhanked Menren for it. However, page 798 of the Watergate Commillee draft report contains this testimony by Mehren and shows that it concerns a $25,000 gift made on June 13, 1972, not 1971. The money apparently was a legal gift, from Lhe political fund ralher lhan corporate assets of AMPI, and was reporled both by CTAPE and the Mills campaign.
