LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The state Supreme Court ruled today that the state Highway Commission cannot be required under present law to make the Highway Department deduct union dues its employes' paychecks. The 4-3 ruling upheld the ruling of Circuit Court Judge Tom F. Digby of Little Rock, who dismissed the suit filed by Arkansas State Highway Employ- es Local 1315 for an order to require the commission to have the deductions made. The suit was filed under Act 876 of 1973, which says deductions may be made from payroll checks only for specified purposes, including union dues when such deductions are requested in writing by state em- ployes. The appeal from Digby's ruling asked the Supreme Court to Issue the order sought by the lawsuit. Associate Justice J. Fred Jones, writing the major- LONDON-bound Texan, Wiley T. Buchanan Jr. reportedly has accepted the post of U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain. He is replacing sometimes controversial Walter Annenberg. ity opinion, said the court could grant such an order only when the duties the union sought to impose on the commission were clear legal duties specifically spelled out by law. Jones said the majority had concluded that the payroll provisions of the law under which the suit was filed were permissive, rather than mandatory, and, at the leastn could not be said to be "clearly mandatory." Therefore the court turned down the union appeal. Associate justices George Rose Smith, John Fogleman and Conley Byrd joined in the majority opinion. Dissenting were Chief Justice Carleton Harris and associate justices Lyle Brown and Frank Holt. They concluded the provisions of the law in question were mandatory. Harris, who wrote the minority opinion, pointed out that the law also made provision for deductions for withholding taxes, Social Security contributions, and contributions to the State Retirement System. He characterized these as "items that we all know to be mandatory." Other deductions provided for by the law, including such items as deductions for group hospital, medical and life insurance, concern matters which result in benefit for employes, Harris said. "The examples, to me, clearly support my original premise, that the act was passed for the benefit of the individual state employes, and was a mandate to the several state departments," Harris wrote. He said that the use of the word "permitted" was tied to the language specifying the only purposes for which deductions could be made and that the law was mandatory when a union dues deduction was requested in writing by a state employe. —Support your local merchants. ffl ft!!!!! »J£|JXJ1»JSI»AS1B«SW<SM*!»5*!»5'«»='«*»«*="="^^ CHRISTMAS SPECIAL ll/VTt TUC NU 1 1 I tit This is noHusm baby picture special!

Marriage 'catastrophe' for Mrs. Trudeau ^^— _ _. i ._ _ i. 1 f nn .1I«i-r *ltm»»I7 \TOP\7 1 TORONTO, Ontario (AP) — Margaret Trudeau says the stress of being the wife of Canada's prime minister, anxiety over the birth of their second child and her first active political campaign all contributed to the mental troubles that sent her to the hospital last month for psychiatric care. She was not ready to be Canada's first lady when she married Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau in 1971 and the marriage was "a total catastrophe in terms of my identity," she said in a television inter view Sunday. She added: "I prepared myself for my marriage to Pierre Trudeau, but I didn't prepare myself for my marriage to the prime minister." She was 22 then and Trudeau was 51. Mrs. Trudeau, who says she is still a "flower child," said loss of freedom is one of the worst problems of life in the executive mansion in Ottawa. "It's like being a prisoner be- cause I'm never alone, except inside the house," she said. "It's certainly not the glamorous, exciting life that most people think it is. It's a lonely life. It's not a free life — but it's a good life." She said that following the birth of their second son last Christmas, she experienced postnatal depression. She said she hadn't had time to feel the "responsibility of another life." Mrs. Trudeau said that campaigning with her husband before the election last July left Body found at Lonoke; man held LONOKE, Ark. (AP) - A man led authorities from the Lonoke County sheriff's office to a woman's partially decomposed body Sunday night, Sheriff Donald Brumett said. No charge had been filed against the suspect Sunday night. The woman, who had been reported missing to Jacksonville authorities, was about 19. Brumett was withholding her identity pending notification of relatives. The woman's fully clothed body was found about 15 miles west of here below a bridge over the Bayou Meto near Arkansas 89. "She'd been beaten or shot to death," said Lonoke County Coroner Jerry Adams. "It looked like she'd been dead about a week." James M. Cox Jr. MIAMI (AP) — James M. Cox Jr., 71, board chairman of the Cox Enterprises newspaper publishing firm and Cox Broadcasting Corp., died Sunday after a long illness. The company owns newspapers in Florida and Ohio. Cox became chairman when his father died in 1957. Thomas J. Herbert CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — Thomas J. Herbert, 79, former Ohio governor, state Supreme Court justice and state attorney general, died Saturday. In 1946 he upset incumbent Democratic Gov. Frank J. Lausche, but was defeated by Lausche in his bid for re-election two years later. —Looking for something? Try the want ads. Brumett said the body was sent to the University of Arkansas Medical Center at Little Rock for an autopsy, but that the woman did not appear to have been shot. He said, unofficially, that it appeared she was beaten to death. Brumett said the suspect had 'some connection" with Little Rock Air Force Base. Brumett said he did not believe there was any connection between this death and the discovery of another woman's decomposed body in west-central Lonoke County on Oct. 19.

She said she was "reaching kind of a crisis stage" when she entered a Montreal hospital for treatment of severe emotional stress. Seeking psychiatric care should not carry a. social stigma, she said. "We're willing to run to a doctor if we've got a cold, for heaven's sake, but if there's something desperately the matter with our mental health ... we're so afraid to say we need some help."
