Friday, November 8, 19f4 HOPE (ARK.) STAIR Henry Criner is 108 IN ATTENDANCE at a recent session of the Nutritional and Recreational Program was Henry Criner who is 108 years-old. Criner who is the father of "seven children, about 10 or 12 grandchildren and about five great grandchildren," was born 1866 in Waldo in Columbia County. Asked that question put to all persons who live over a 100 as to what he attributed his long life to, Criner laughed and said, "I guess it's just from being a good fellow." . _...,.,. Abortion law suggestions made LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The state Medical Board decided Thursday to ask the Arkansas Legislature to substitute an innovative statute letting the board make most of the rules for abortions in the state. Recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings probably have rendered Arkansas' abortion law unconstitutional. Eugene R. Warren of Little Rock, the board's attorney, suggested the approach. He said he believed it would become a model for other states. Warren said differing interpretations of the Supreme Court rulings would make it difficult to write a statute that definitely could stand constitutional tests if the legislature tried to set out every detail of acceptable abortion procedure in the law. Warren concluded that the best approach would be for the legislature to set out relatively broad guidelines, quoting Supreme Court rulings as much as possible. The legislation would specify that the Medical Board would be the one to set out the details, in the form of regulations. The broad outlines would provide that only physicians holding valid Arkansas licenses could perform abortions in the state and that no advertising for abortion services offered either in or out of the state would be permitted in Arkansas. During the first three months of the pregnancy, all decisions about an abortion would be solely between the woman and her doctor. From the end of the first three months to the time of viability of the fetus, the Medical Board would establish procedures "reasonably related to maternal health and consistent with good medical practices," Warren said. After the fetus became viable, the regulations would be Helene Thimig VIENNA (AP) - Actress Helene Thimig, 85, the widow of stage director Max Reinhardt, died in a Vienna hospital Thursday. Although she was also known in tne United States, Miss Thimig appeared on stage most often m Austria and Germany. "consistent with good medical practices" but prohibit abortions except for the "preservation of the life or health of the mother." Under this approach, Warren said, the law itself could remain constitutional even if one of the regulations itself were found unconstitutional. —Shop in Hope.

Call No. 491 Charter No. 10579 National Bank Region No. 8 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Annabella Battistella, 38, the former stripper involved with Rep. Wilbur Mills in the Tidal Basin incident, says her marriage has broken up since the episode. But the curly-haired brunette, here Thursday to tape a Mike Douglas show as part of a publicity tour, claimed the Oct. 7 incident had nothing to do with her marital problems. She did say that her ex-husband Eduardo was "very uncomfortable" about the public attention she has received. He is living in Argentina. Police said they hauled Mrs. Battistella out of Washington's Tidal Basin in Washington the night of Oct. 7 after they stopped Mills' car. Officers said Mills, who was not driving, had been drinking and his glasses were broken. She said the party of several persons, including herself and Mills, had been to a private party and they were on their way home when they were stopped. She was the only intoxicated person, she said. The Arkansas Democrat, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, was elected last Tuesday to his 19th consecutive term. He said his wife had missed the party because she was at home with a broken foot. "She told me later she'd never miss another party, no mat- Icr what," Mrs. Battistella said. In the past four weeks Mrs. Battistella, once billed as "the Argentine firecracker," said she has had offers to appear on television shows and at clubs in New York and Boston. She described herself and Mills as "very good friends" and said she and her husband had played bridge with Mills and his wife. Alexander M. Bickel NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Alexander M.
