OPEN EVERY NITE TILL 9 I'M From Pott Wirt Strvicti WASHINGTON - For the second time in a week, the Supreme Court temporarily spared the life of a death row inmate who wants to be executed. In a two-sentence order approved with only one dissent, the court yesterday barred the execution of Robert Excell White of Waco, Tex., that had been scheduled for Friday. White had been convicted of murder and given a death sentence which he says he wants carried out. After his lawyer had started an appeal to the Supreme Court, White wrote to the justices and said his lawyer had no authority to do that. "I have had plenty of time to consider my particular situation," White said. "I am mentally prepared to accept the judgment of sentence imposed upon me." However, the justices yesterday postponed the sentence at least until after White's lawyer formally files an appeal and the court takes some final action on it. That apparently means that White could not be executed for several weeks at a 80, 90.4 It 100 PROOF, DISTILLED FROM GRAIN, SAZERAC CO., INC., N.O., LA. s In in nocJuulmSm ill I I onrki itm nni Use P-T Classifieds iii 7rm IK-MART PLAZA J LEATHER BELTS C.

The court told the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to come up with a more limited plan to integrate blacks, Mexican-Americans and other whites in schools. "The remedy ordered appears to exceed that necessary to eliminate the effect of any official acts or omissions," Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr. said in an opinion that spoke also for Chief Justice Warren E. Burger and Justice William H. Rehnquist. Ruled that exclusion of even one juror opposed to capital punishment invalidates any death penalty imposed in a trial. In a 6-3 decision, the court tossed out the death sentence of condemned Georgia murderer Curfew Davis because one prospective juror at Davis' trial was excused after stating general scruples againsh capital punishment. An assistant to Florida Atty. Gen. Robert Shevin said yesterday the decision will not affect Florida as the state already follows the procedure outlined in the Georgia decision.

After the policy was found to be a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, a back pay lawsuit was filed by some stewardesses. U.S. District Judge J. Sam Perry of Chicago refused to let them represent the entire class of individuals subjected to this treatment. Thus about 140 were excluded.

Post Grad fashion jeans byH.I.S.' for the Gilmore Asks Mom End Appeal SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) - Condemned killer Gary Gilmore pleaded with his mother yesterday to drop her U.S. Supreme Court appeal of his death sentence, saying that dying "ain't no big deal.". Because of her appeal, Gilmore watched the sun rise from a prison hospital room instead of facing a firing squad. It was the second delay of his execution for the murder of a Provo, Utah, motel clerk. "Please mom, accept the fact that I don't disagree with the law and the sentence that has been imposed upon me and I wish to be dead," the 36-year-old convict said in a letter to his mother, Bessie Gilmore of Milwaukie, Ore. "We all die and it ain't no big deal. Sometime it's right and proper," he said in the letter released through his attorney, The Supreme Court stayed the execution last Friday after the NAACP Legal Defense Fund filed an appeal on behalf of Mrs. Gilmore, a widow bedridden with arthritis. The high court has delayed the electrocution of Texas killer Robert Excell White, who also asked to die without appeal of sentence. No one has been executed in the United States since 1967. Gilmore asked his mother to "please disassociate yourself with the Uncle Tom NAACP." "I don't know how the NAACP got to you, but please don't let them use you as a sympathetic national appeal," the killer said. "Mom, they have no concern for you or for me. In fact, they are less than concerned about any white person." . mature man. rBt, m!?"" t y" """y J j j f W 'I They're cut a little fuller for a fit that's right on the mature man's shape.
