Paducah Mayor Dolly McNutt said yesterday she was "disappointed" by a decision of special prosecutor L. M. Tipton Reed of Mayfield not to request a special grand jury to investigate bail bonding practices here. "I'm disappointed but I accept the decision ... I have no other choice," she said. "If I knew in what other direction to jump, I would jump. I have been advised that Mr. Reed made the decision in compliance with the statutes and I respect his judgment." The special jury had been recommended by a committee formed in May by the ! mayor and McCracken County Judge Andrew Palmer to probe bail-bond , conditions here. In its final report the committee recommended a special grand jury, a special prosecutor and an ordinance regulating bail-bonding in the city. The ordinance was adopted but on Aug. 4 McCracken Circuit Judge C. Warren Eaton issued a temporary injunction against its enforcement. Reed, appointed by the attorney general, also is Graves County commonwealth's attorney. He said Tuesday night he felt that a special grand jury would repeat investigative work done by a January grand jury. Ed Miller,' Paducah attorney, who headed the bail-bond investigating committee, noted that Reed said he would submit a report to Atty. Gen. Ed Hancock and would ask him to send it to the mayor and the committee. Miller said he wanted to read the re- port before commenting on Reed's decision. Soviets arrest official for receiving bribes MOSCOW (AP) A high official in the Agriculture Ministry has been dismissed from his job, expelled from the Communist Party and arrested for taking bribes, Pravda reported yesterday. The Communist Party daily said the official was named Vasily P. Syomin, deputy chief of the ministry's secretariat, or administrative sector. Pravda ran a long article July 2 that accused Syomin of taking bribes from Ivan I. Babich, director of a state farm in Moldavia. The paper said Syomin accepted cases of Moldavian apples and wine, chickens, lard and other produce of the state farm, a free vacation in a Moldavian village and a country house built by the state farm's workers. - ' 1 In return, Syomin provided a seeding , laboratory for Babick's farm, adding machines for his administrative offices, equipment for classrooms in an attached technical school and several television sets, Pravda said.

The Western Kentucky University board of regents decided yesterday to give students more voting strength on the Academic Councilthe advisory group that recommends university academic policies. The new council will have six voting students; the old one had two. The board's action produced a net expansion of four in the number of voting members on the council, from 51 to 55. The board brought about the expansion by giving voting rights to six students elected by the university colleges and by removing voting privileges from two officers bf the Associated Students, Western's , student-government organization. The president and two vice presidents of the Associated Students will be associate members of the board, however.

An arraignment has been held in Clay County and another is pending in Clark County for a former used-car salesman who collected $750 Jn; political contributions while purporting' to be an employe of Gov. Wendell Ford. Clay Daniels, 44, formerly of Prestonsburg, was arrested by state police last week in Lexington and charged with obtaining money under false pretenses.
