Ed Hardwick. life termer at Tucker prison farm since 1921, when he was convicted In circuit court 'nere of the first degree murder of Barney Richmond, near Manila, will not be freed to marry an Indiana widow, Governor J. M. Futrall in- dicalcd at Little Rock today. Hardwick was guilty of the most brutal crime that occurred in this judicial district during his four years as district prosecutor, Cecil Shane, Blytheville attorney, said today in recalling HarJwick's trial and conviction. Mi-. S'.iatie said that he had been asked on several occasions to agree to a request for Hardwick's furlough or parole and that he had refused. At one time Mrs. Lula Tuveson. the South Bend, mil., widow whose romance j with Hardwick began after the life lermer had answered her adver- ILscment in a "love story" magazine, came here to ask. Mr. Shane to agree to a recommendation for Hardwick's release, but was refused. Evidence Circumslaucial Shane said that as he recalled the trial Hardwick was convicted of first degree murder after a jury had deliberated on 'ills fate for only a short time. Some of the jurors were for the death penalty at first, he snld. Tile evidence against Hardwick was almost entirely circumslancial but the circumstances were unusually strong, the former prosecutor said. Apparently trie only motive for the crime was a desire on ?the .part of .Hjtrdwick for a team of mule's" belonging to Richmond. The latter had'-moved into-.the(ssction near" Mmfcia from MissourT VnL had been in the vicinity for. only a short time w'hcn he disappeared Then Hardwick moved from the community and was later discovered in a nearby county with Rich- V/arns Control Needed For Soft Coal Industry WASHINGTON, May 28 (UP)—!
