Bruce Babbitt took the witness stand Tuesday and defended the Arizona Board of Regents' secrecy in selecting a president for Arizona State University.

Hector Estrada, Roblcs' attorney, argued that Roblcs' use of Spanish is protected by the U.S. Constitution.

He said that based on this experience, he believes that the most qualified applicants are not willing to be interviewed for such a post unless their names are. kept confidential in the selection process. People who would be flattered to have their names publicly mentioned as candidates for the post probably arc "the ones you, don't want," he said. Babbitt said the use of secrecy allows regents to make a selection of the caliber of former ASU President Grady Gammage and deters them "from meeting in a cabal to pick a car salesman." . "The use of confidentiality is, in fact, the best way to make the reach for another Grady Gammage," Babbitt told Judge Elizabeth Stover, whom he appointed to the bench in 1980. in binding legal decisions. Charge is dismissed in Tucson beating death TUCSON A judge has dismissed a second-degree murder charge against a Tucson man because the prosecutor could not find an eyewitness to the slaying. Judge Lina Rodriguez of Pima County Superior Court dismissed the charge against Tommy Gene Jones, 19, "without prejudice," meaning it could be rcfilcd, said Richard Nichols, a deputy county attorney. The judge had ordered the prosecution to make the witness available for an interview by defense attorney Glenda Edmonds by July 21, and dismissed the charge after the deadline was missed, Nichols said. Jones was charged in the slaying of his mother's boyfriend, Edward "Ten-Speed" Means, 47, who was beaten to death with a pipe May 9. The case will be dismissed with prejudice, meaning the charges cannot be rcfilcd, on Nov. 1 if the witness cannot be found, Nichols said. Compiled from reports by The Associated Press.
