State Files For Hew Trial In $12.7 Million Hassle By VERNON SCOTT. . UPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) -Tennessee Ernie Ford will almost certainly leave a unique legacy ' among popular show business, figures, a spectrum of Christian hymns as sun in the 19th and 20th Centuries. In all, the old peapicker from Dixie i has recorded 23 religious albums,, six of which earned him gold records. . - A Methodist himself. Ford sings • the most popular hymns of all denominations in his deep baritone. The country • boy quality. of his humor is absent from {the recordings, which he sings seriously indeed. So far as is known, no other commercial, popular; balladeer has - compiled a.larger repertoire of religious songs "The first album I made is still the biggest seller/' Ford said, grinning. "And the -most popular song in that record is 'The Old Rugged Cross.'- It's my favorite, too." Tennessee Ernie has gradually . withdrawn from' the television and recording treadmill, spending more and more-time as a rancher. Once a television regular with his own musical-variety show. Ford invested his money in California real estate and now lives on 15 acres of rolling hill country south of San Francisco. But his real pride is a magnificent ranch on the California - Nevada ' boundary planted in alfalfa and with 3,000 head of beef cattle. "Man, that's living up there," he said on a stop in Hollywood to play a guest role on the new Jim Nabors show. "I ride, fence, brand cattle and look after the crops. Love every minute of it." Ernie is far from retiring from show business, but' he's ' busier than he'd like to be as an entertainer. • "I got a television special coming up on Nov. 24," he said. "It's about a peapicker in Picadilly. I try-to give viewers a-look at London through my eyes. It's not one of those things that could be done on a stage in Hollywood." Because he is so closely -associated with religious songs, Ernie will have a smash finish for his special. For the first time in history, Westminster Abbey will be used as part of an entertainment show. "I. got special permission to sing the Battle Hymn of the Republic in that magnificent place," Ford said reverently. "It was one of the most moving experiences Of my life." Ford has grown tremendously in stature 1 . from the.'hillbilly character he assumed in' - the early days of his career to his present standing as a recording ar edian-andcattlerancher INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - A motion for a new trial was filed. before the Indiana Appellate Court today by the State of Indiana in an effort to avoid having to pay $12.7 million to the Mass Transportation Authority of Greater Indianapolis Nov. 22. The high court last Dec. 31 ruled that pocket veto by then Gov. Roger Branigin of bills passed by the 1967 Legislature was unconstitutional. The. MTA sued on the basis of that ruling to recover inheritance taxes the vetoed bill had required to be paid Marion County, by the state. The motion was filed at the same time the Indiana Supreme Youth Unrest Caused By Refusal To Let Them Vote . By RAYMOND LAHR WASHINGTON (UPI) -If rebellious youths in 46 states want the vote before they are 21, they can easily: see that the outlook is bleak. They could move to Georgia or Kentucky, where the minimum age now is 18, to Alaska, where it is 19, or to Hawaii, where it is 20. Elsewhere, there has been no trend toward giving the vote to the young despite pronouncements from the major political parties and presidents from both partie.s This reluctance was underscored, in state elections Nov. 4, when voters rejected' proposals to lower the voting age to 18 in New Jersey and to 19 in Ohio.. In 1968 elections, Nebraska and North Dakota voted against cutting the voting age to 19 and Hawaii against the vote for 18- year-olds. The Tennessee electorate voted to delete consideration of the issue from the agenda for a proposed constitutional convention. Michigan voters refused to lower the minimum age to 18 in 1966. In their recent decisions, unrest among the young has been counted a factor. in the refusal of their elders to give them the vote. The council of state governments reports that the issue will come up in at least 10 states in 1970.' Proposals to set the minimum age at 20 will be on the ballot in Nebraska and Show Times 7:00.4 9:15 ENDS TONIGHT • Maine, at 19 in Minnesota, Massachusetts, Montana, Ore- go and Wyoming, and at. 18 in Alaska, Connecticut and Hawaii. - ' • ' If approved a second time' by their leigslatures, the issue will come before the voters of Delaware and Nevada in 1972. The 1968 Democratic platform expressly declared support for a constitutional amendment to give the vote to 18- . year-olds in all states. The more qualified Republican platform plank said "lower age' groups should be accorded the right to vote." "We believe that states which have. not yet acted should reevaluate their positions with ewaowxr to 18-year-old voting and that each state should decide this matter for itself," the GOP said. "We urge the states, to act now." Court was debating a previous mot on for a stay of execution of the Appellate Court order to return the money to the MTA. Oral arguments were scheduled for this afternoon. Return For Bowl Game Until last week, when Notre Dame President Rev. Theodore Hesburgh indicated he had an open mind about bowl competition, the Irish probably would not have received a bid. "Many people have asked me why It took so long for. us to . change our position on bowl games," executive, vice president Rev. Edmund P. Joyce said, "and all I can say is the arguments in favor this year outweigh those against participation in a bowl game." Boy Joyce and Parseghian said all practice and travel for the bowl game.will take place during Christmas vacation and Parseghain said- a team committee of six players would he named to determine practice time. He also announced that. three players injured before-the start of the regular season, tackle Greg Marx, guard John Dampier and - fullback John Cieszkowski, could join the team in the bowl.

All the FAA will. say about the system is that it screens passengers according to "psychology-based behavior profiles." the profiles were developed after the backgrounds of hijackers were studied to determine certain common behavior traits. Any passengers whom the profiles • fit apparently are detained for questioning and possible search. I'm delighted, of course, that the system looks promising and I certainly wouldn't want to do anything that might compromise it. I couldn't help wondering, however, just what behavior traits hijackers have in. common. Permits Speculation . . "I would like a ticket, please. If the) FAA will permit a bit.

Rap Brown, by black power railiant, to revocation of his bail by Federal District Judge Lansing L. it a r+r- —• .—Mitchell of New Orleans in LAND OF THE SEAl 19 jf- . . Mitchell declared Brown's $15,000 bail forfeited .and set a new one of $50,000 because of fund-raising speeches Brown made in Oakland and Los Angeles for Huey P. Newton, another militant. Under terms of the original bond, Brown's activities were restricted to traveling to other court appearances and. to consultations with his lawyers. The appeal to the Supreme Court contended that the 1966 Federal Bail Reform Act, permitted forfeiture only when the defendant absented himself from a court proceeding. Brown was convicted in May, 1968, on charges of illegally carrying a rifle on ah airplane from New Orleans to New York. "Okay, make it first class." "Very well, sir. Do you have any luggage?" "Just this rifle.". "Would you like us to check it for you?" "No thanks. I'll keep it in my seat with me." "As you wish, sir. Would you like us to reserve ground. transportation for you at the Miami Airport?" thanks. I won't be at Miami." this is a nonstop flight, NOT A GIMMICK . | v BIRMINGHAM, England (UPI)-The Rev.
