Wood 38 traffic deaths IllOlltll James Earl Ray in f Or j W Rowe, director of the Red River Valley Vocational Technical Training School, who hosted the exhibit, which runs through Wednesday, Oct. 23 The Arkansas State Police in its monthly, statistical review reported that 38 persons died in traffic accidents during the month of September. According to State Police figures, this is a decrease of 24 deaths over the same time period a year ago. Captain Milton Mosier, district commander of the Hope district for the Arkansas State Police, said that three persons died during September on Arkansas highways in the Hope district. Counties in the district recording deaths were Clark 2, and Miller 1. Hempstead, Howard, Lafayette, Little River, Nevada, Pike, and Sevier were free of traffic fatalities during the reporting period. Captain Mosier said troopers in the 9-county area investigated 84 accidents. Sevier county experienced the highest accident rate during September with 18, followed by Miller with 14, Hempstead 13, Lafayette 8, Clark, Howard, and Little River 7 each, Nevada 6, and Pike 4. The report indicated that speed was the leading cause in the accidents followed by failure to yield right of way and driving on wrong side of road. The 38 traffic deaths during September occurred in 31 collisions. Statewide troopers investigated 936 accidents during the month of September. Inimitable Green ink was invented by Thomas Sterry Hunt, Professor of chemistry at McGill University. This ink, immune to photographic imitation, was first used in 1862 in American currency or "greenbacks." MEMPHIS, leim. (APT Authorities secretly whisked James Earl Ray from his maximum security cell at Tennessee State Prison in Nashville to the Shelby County Jail for a long-awaited evidentiary hearing. Officials at the Memphis jail said the man who once admitted the slaying of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. arrived Sunday night under the escort of U.S. Marshal George R. Tallent and al least five other federal officers and state corrections personnel. The 200-mile transfer was made in such secrecy that one of Ray's attorneys, Robert I. Livingston, was unaware that his client was in the city until contacted by The Associated Press. Ray is attempting to with- draw his 1969 guilty piea in King's death. The first step begins Tuesday before U. S. District Court Judge Robert M. McRae Jr. Federal authorities said last week that Ray would be held in the same maximum security cellblock where he was housed for eight months prior to entering his guilty plea to shooting the Nobel Prize-winning civil rights leader on April 4, 1968. Ray maintains he was pressured into the guilty plea by attorney Percy Foreman of Houston, Tex., and others who he claims stood to profit from the sale of publications about the King case and his involvement. The first Republican candidate for president was John C Fremont in 1856. He lost to James Buchanan. 1
