Montgomery, an off-duty officer with the North Little Rock Police Department, was shot and wounded after he surprised a young man apparently trying to burglarize a vacant house owned by the officer's father Monday. Chief Deputy Bill Younts said Montgomery, 31, was listed in good condition Monday night at North Little Rock Memorial Hospital after undergoing surgery. Montgomery was unarmed and was wearing civilian clothes at the time of the shoot- in". Here are the final letters PBA appea l —Bill Wray photo with Star camera Travis is guesl speaker Rotarians hear talk about Hines Lumber On Friday, November 1 the Edward Hines Lumber Company marked its second anniversary as a manufacturer in Hope, and Gilbert Travis, general manager, brought the program to the Hope Rotary Club at a luncheon meeting in the Town and Country. A native of south I/)uisiana and a graduate of Southeast Louisiana State, the speaker touched on his personal background briefly before giving a history of the Edward Hines Lumber Company, which was founded in 1892 and has its headquarters in Chicago. The Hope Division of Edward Hines Lumber of Arkansas produces 110,000 board feet of lumber a day. The plant employs 58 people and has an annual payroll of $500,000. An additional 25 people are employed in the woods. These are local people, for this company is locally oriented in every respect, whether it is employing people, buying material, or selling products. President Gerald Keith welcomed visiting Rotarian Frank Key of Shreveport, George Jordan of Van Buren, who is making new maps for the city, Judge John Wilson, Jim Pitts, Mike McQueen, Tim Duckett, Vic Massanelli, and student guests Jimmy Rhodes and Bobby Jones. The club sang Happy Birthday to Guy Basye, who joined Fred Ellis and Comer Boyett as recent celebrants receiving this recognition.

Roman's death believed caused by brown spider LITTLE ROCK (AP) — A physician raid Monday that the death Sunday of Sue Joyce Bishop Helms, 44, of Little Rock was caused by an infection from an insect bite on her leg. The woman's physician, who asked not to be identified, said the bite might have been made by a brown recluse spider. But, he said, there was no way to confirm exactly what bit the woman on the calf of her right leg because she had not seen it. If it was a brown recluse spider, the physician said, it might have bitten her while she was asleep or after it had got into her clothing in a closet. Mrs. Helms died at St. Vincent Infirmary after being admitted Friday suffering from blood poisoning and a temperature of 104 degrees. "She thought a mosquito had bitten her," the physician said, "but from the reaction it looked like a brown recluse spider bite. She developed an overwhelming infection from the TIRE RETREADS EASE DISPOSAL PROBLEM WASHINGTON (AP) - More than 200 million tire casings are discarded each year in the U.S., according to the Tire Ret- r e a d Information Bureau. That's enough to circle the earth four times at the equator. Retreads are a way of recycling tires while saving valuable crude oil reserves. It takes seven gallons of oil to produce an average automobile tire, but only 2^ gallons to retread one. At that rate, the more than 40 million retreads sold in 1973 alone saved hundreds of millions of gallons of crude oil. bite." He stud Mrs. Helms was bitten four or five days before she was hospitalized and she went into irreversible shock from the infection 12 to 14 hours after she entered the hospital. She was given massive doses of medicine, but "all to no avail.... "She didn't know what it. was that bit her," the physician said. "I guess that's why she waited so long." The physician said he had seen two or three patients who had been bitten by the brown recluse during the summer, but they were treated promptly and didn't become seriously ill. Obituaries MRS. LILLIE PEARSON Funeral services were held Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Prescott for Mrs. Lillie Pearson, 85, of Prescott who died at her home Sunday. The Rev.

Editor The Star: To begin with this is the first time, ever, for me to write The Editor. I am made to wonder if some of the people realize what they are saying about the local liquor option law. Are they sincere in this or is it just so much propaganda they are putting out thinking the good people of Hempstead county do not know any better? For instance: Much has been said by the proponents of this measure (repeal of prohibition) about stopping the bootlegger. I'm sure all who are against this measure would like to see the bootlegging of liquor stopped. But really they are not the ones who can stop it. It is a law enforcement problem but there is a simple solution. If the drinkers of the bootleggers product would stop buying the stuff the bootlegger would be out of business. It's that simple if the drinkers want to stop it. There has been much said about littering the highway between here and Texarkana, the drunks, wrecks, etc. Maybe these people would rather have much more of the same on our city streets, because with so- called legal control we will have much more of the same. None of us want wrecks and death on the highways, not even littered highways. There is also a simple solution to the Texarkana traffic if the drinkers want it stopped. The solution: Just stay away from Texarkana, and other places, for the purchase of alcoholic beverages. If the drinkers would do this all the money could be spent in the Hope area for food, clothing, shelter, etc. This would create no new problems and might be the solution to some of our problems. There was something about all industry going to the wet areas. It seems Hope has done rather well industry-wise the last few years. It would be interesting to know just how many industrial firms refused to come to the Hope area simply because it is dry. Did you ever hear of the Chamber of Commerce, etc., listing the number of beer and liquor joints along with the alcohol related problems in trying to bring new industry to an area? , ; . What is wrong in being 49th in "some things" among the 50 states? Being 50th is the only thing better in alcohol-related accidents—murders, suicides, thefts, rapes, and the other evils of alcoholism. No one except those involved in the sale of drugs want our youth using dope. But alcohol is the teen-age tragedy of the seventies. Alcoholism now affects an estimated half- million youngsters. It dwarfs all juvenile health problems- including drug addiction and veneral disease. There has been a sky-rocketing rate of juvenile arrests for drunken driving and liquor law violations. 12 and 14- year-olds are turning up at A.A. meetings. Alcohol is legal and used commonly and openly by adults, so youngsters feel no shame in doing the same. Social drinking is so much a part of American life that the step from alcohol as a pick-me-up to alcohol as a need can occur gradually. It is no accident that children of alcoholic parents so often become alcoholics. These are not my opinions, nor that of the unlearned. They come from those in the know. Those who work with alcoholic related problems in our society. Does anyone believe that the legalizing of the sale and drinking of alcohol, making it more convenient, will reduce these evils and problems of our youth, and others? Drugs may be a problem for some, but let's not hide behind this smokescreen and make things worse for our young people. Then there was something about "membership dues of the church." There are many things I do not know and one of them is any church that charges membership dues, or excludes anyone for not paying dues. If our contributions of time, effort and money to further the Lords work here on earth, to make it a better place in which to live, was intended it seems it would have been in better place in which to live, was intended it seems it would have been in better taste to have learned that and stated it accordingly. The idea has been advanced that the New Testament in no way condemns wine. It does condemn the drinking and drunkenness of wine. Eph. 5:18 says, "and be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit." A direct command against it. Rom. 14;21 says, "It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor anything whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak." The legalizing of sale and drinking of liquor, as cited above, will cause many to stumble and be made weak, especially our young people. The Bible does record instances of merry-making etc. from wine. It also records instances of stealing, cheating, adultry, murder, etc., but God never approved of them. The same condemnation is pronounced upon these along with drunkenness in Gal. 5; 19-21 and Christ was accused of being a winebibber and glutton. He was also accused, falsely, of many other things. Yet he was without sin. In fact Christ pronounced a blessing upon those who are accused falsely for his cause. Matt. 5; 11. I suppose some are going to drink regardless. By the same token, some are going to steal rape and murder, but legalizing them would not help any. When all is said and done, it seems that those who want to drink are just looking for a more convenient way to obtain their liquor. The ad in todays paper mentioned that convenience. And for their convenience they expect the rest of us to share in the blame, responsibility, of all its evil problems. I do not want that on my conscience. Habakkuk 2; 15 says, "Woe unto him that giveth his neighbor drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken." I'm afraid the legal sale and drinking of alcohol would be putting the bottle to our neighbors mouth, especially that of our young people. After all, and not that this is good, who needs more than a gallon of whiskey and a case of beer at one time? But this way the drinker and his family are the only ones that suffer. His family should not have to suffer, neither should we as we will if it is on the streets. Thank you, Respectfully yours, LOY GARNER Nov. 1, 1974 313 S. Spruce St. Hope, Ark. is planned LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Four members of the state Public Building Authority agreed Monday that they had no choice but to appeal a ruling that it would be unconstitutional for the PBA to issue revenue bonds to help finance construction of a $74 nu'llion state office building complex. Since all four of the PBA's seven members present at the meeting Monday agreed to appeal the case, they took no formal vote, on it. "We have to make the appeal," said member Bill Lindsey of Caldwell. "For the benefit of the legislature, we need to know once and for all whether this is a valid method of financing." Even if Chancellor Darrell Hickman's ruling had favored the PBA, member Mike Mehaffy of Little Rock said, he understood the ruling must be appealed. Bond lawyers had advised that all legal questions must be settled before the bonds could be sold, he said. Fulbright in hospital WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., underwent minor surgery at nearby Bethesda Naval Medical Center on Monday, his office said today. A statement issued by Fulbright's office said the senator was hospitalized "for some corrective surgery which had been postponed until the congressional recess. The corrective surgery was performed Monday morning and was successful and uneventful." Fulbright was reported in good condition and a spokesman for his office said the senator probably would be out of the hospital within a week. Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was defeated earlier this year in his bid for re-election and will end his 30-year Senate career in January.
