REGIONAL BRIEFS COMPILED FROM WIRE DISPATCHES Mother pleads innocent in son's death JAMESTOWN, Ky. A woman and her boyfriend have pleaded innocent to charges stemming from the death of her 21-month-old son last week. Elizabeth R. Turner, 23, of Jamestown, pleaded innocent Tuesday in Russell District Court to a felony charge of complicity to commit murder. She was arrested Sunday after failing to make a "proper effort" to prevent the death of her son, Nathaniel Turner, according to her arrest warrant. Turner's boyfriend, Timothy B. Polston, 20, was charged Aug. 19 with the killing. He also pleaded innocent Tuesday. A state medical examiner concluded that the boy died of "battered child syndrome." Nathaniel died Aug. 18 at Russell County Hospital. He was taken there after Polston called an ambulance from Turner's home, police Chief Joey Hoover said.

Ex-Rep. Charles Diggs Jr., 75, dies By IRVIN MOLOTSKY The New York Times WASHINGTON - Charles C. Diggs Jr., a founder of the Congressional Black Caucus whose 26-year House career ended in disgrace when he was convicted of taking kickbacks from his staff, died Monday. He was 75 and lived in suburban Washington. His son, Douglass, said the cause was a stroke. Diggs, a Democrat from Detroit, was an early and aggressive congressional advocate for black causes and helped increase U.S. aid to Africa. But in 1978 he was indicted on charges that, among other things, he had taken kickbacks from three congressional employees. Testifying on his own behalf, Diggs said the employees had made their salaries available willingly when he was in "very dire financial straits." The jury found him guilty of all 29 counts against him in October 1978, but he was re-elected to his 13th term the next month while awaiting sentencing. He was sentenced to up to three years in prison. In July 1979, the House voted unanimously to censure Diggs, who had remained free on appeal. He resigned in June 1980. A month later, he entered the minimum-security prison at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama and was released after serving seven months. Diggs was elected to Congress in 1954 at 31, a victory that increased the number of blacks in the House to three from two. There are 39 members of the Congressional Black Caucus now. Rep. William Clay, D-Mo., and Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Detroit, said Diggs pressed the United States to improve relations with the developing countries in Africa and to provide them with assistance. That made Diggs a hero to many Africans, Clay said. "We went on a trip to Sierra Leone," Clay said, "and the plane was due to arrive at 8 o'clock at night. We were delayed until 1 a.m., but there were 10,000 people still there waiting at the airport to greet us. "Until Muhammad Ali came along, Diggs was the most popular American in Africa." Besides his son, Diggs is survived by his wife, Darlene; another son; four daughters; and 13 grandchildren. J2. During life's most difficult moments, you feci better just being with family.
