You'll find then idvcrtised in the Want Ad. columns of the Star Citizen daily and The STAR CITIZEN 622-5855 took various dealings and transactions of which the people have no knowledge," it said. Jayne Carr, an assistant attorney general who drafted the suit, said in a telephone interview there is much law dealing with fiduciaries, or trustees, but little or none dealing with public officials as such trustees. When asked if a successful Hi Indian Subjects A ADS i he held a position of trustee for the people of the state "for the vast amount of power, influence and discretion," the suit said, which enabled him to affect and control the actions of others in power. The suit accuses Powell of having breached his trust by violations of the state purchasing act and other statutes, and asserts Powell owes the state his income and profits from breaches of trust.

It concentrates on Powell's purchase of a substantial number of shares of the capital stock of Chicago Downs Association, Inc. authorized to conduct harness racing with pari-mutuel betting. Statutory authority for the corporation was won in the 1949 legislative session, the suit said, and thereafter Powell bought a substantial number of race track stock shares at a bargain price. It was Powell's duty to turn his purchases and profits over to the state, the suit said, and in breaching his trust as a state official when he failed to do so he forfeited his holdings to the state. The unusual nature of the state's claim is evident in the suit: "The people of the State of Illinois have no adequate remedy at Jaw due to the nature of their fiduciary relationship with Paul Powell by virtue of which Powell was vested with vast discretion and in the name of the people of the State of Illinois under Gypsy artist Tina Aiouz, who lives in a camper near the Papago Reservation with her husband and their seven-year-old son, has devoted her talents lately to portraying the Indian life of North and South America.

Young Artist Plans First Tucson Show Tina Azouz, a young artist now concentrating on portrait studies of American and Mexican Indians, has planned her first major Tucson showing. The showing, to be held at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Ruben Acosta, 85 Sierra Vista Drive, on March 11, is to be a benefit for the Tucson Civic Ballet.

A $5 donation will be collected at the door. Wine and cheese will state suit might not jeopardize estates of public officials by subjecting them to similar suits, she said, "I would hope it would generally serve as a deterrent to amassing funds directly attributable to a public position." At the time of the filing of the original suit, J. Waldo Ackerman, then assistant attorney general in charge of the case and now a circuit judge, said his case was based on a 1909 U.S. Supreme Court decision. "The larger interests of public justice shall not tolerate," the decision said, "under any circumstances, that a pubUc official shall retain any profit or advantage which he may realize through the acquirement of an interest in conflict with his fidelity as an agent." When asked whether a favorable decision in the claim against Powell's estate would apply to other officials, Acker-man said, "Before we start talking about these other people, let's first establish the principle in court." 1 Pakistan On Media Anti-Government Editors Arrested RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (AP) President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto's regime is tightening its-control of Pakistan's press, radio and television.

One directive from the Ministry of Information orders editors to play down statements by Bhutto's opposition especially the National Aw-ami Party and to play up remarks by pro-government poBficians. Police arrested Altaf Gau-har; the editor of Dawn, an independent English-language daily in Karachi opposed to Bhutto. At least seven other editors and publishers opposed to Bhutto also were jailed. When Bhutto became president in December 1971, he fired Z. A.

Suleri, editor of the Pakistan Times, a paper that has a virtual monopoly in the English-language market in the populous northern half of the country. The Times is part of the National Press Trust, financed by wealthy industrial families in an effort to create a press loyal to whatever regime is in power, Bhutto campaigned to abolish the trust while a member of the opposition, but since taking power he has kept it al-. ive. Bhutto's opposition has fought controls, and despite government pressure, more criticism of the administration has been published since Bhutto assumed power than during the military regimes of Field Marshal Mohammed Ayub Khan and Gen. Agha Mohammed Yahya Khan.

The opposition also has struck in other ways. Crowds in Peshawar and Quetta ransacked offices of the Daily Mashriq, an Urdulaily owned by the press trust, because it had criticized the National Awanri Party. But the Bhutto government's resources have been greater. The Ministry of Information controls newsprint allocation and according to the Investment Advisory Center of Pakistan nearly 30 per cent of advertising in newspapers and magazines. After Information Secretary Nisim Ahmad denounced Dawn in November for a series of articles which he claimed maligned the army, the.

government withdrew its advertising from the paper. Bhutto is keenly aware of radio and television as pillars of: support. His speeches are regularly aired in full during evening prime time. Aslam Azhar, the head of Pakistan Television, says he sometimes gets two calls a night from Bhutto commenting on just about anything from political programs to: the propriety of macabre plays. 52 The best columnists appearing anywhere, appear on the editorial page of ffljr Arizona paUaSar amp Jurors In Kerner Trial Were A Finicky Group By T.

Official Amassed Fortune In Office SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) More than two years after the death of Paul Powell, Illinois secretary of state, the question of who gets his $3 million plus estate including a $750,000 shoebox fortune still is up in the air.

The State of Illinois has a claim pending in Circuit Court, contending the $3.4 million estate consisted of funds being held in trust by Powell as a public official. Powell lived modestly during his long political career and the surprise fortune was found in Powell's name after his death Oct. 10, 1970. It included the $750,000 found in shoe boxes in a closet in his Springfield hotel room. With the help of interest and dividends, the estate has been paying lawyer and court costs as well as executor and other expenses.

The estate is locked up in the court primarily because of the suit filed by Atty. Gen. William J. Scott of Illinois, claiming all Powell's wealth for the state. When the suit was filed in July, 1971, the estate was estimated at about $2.7 milhon.

Judge Jack C. Morris dismissed that claim on the ground it was too vague. Scott filed an amended complaint in Circuit Court in Powell's home town of Vienna. A hearing was scheduled Jan. 25 but was canceled because it coincided with a judicial conference, Judge Morris said.

In a telephone interview, Judge Morris said he is having difficulty rescheduling the hearing. Besides the state's claim, there are five others pending. Judge Morris said he is trying to set a time convenient for all. The state claim, if it were granted, would probably take precedence over all others, even that of the Internal Revenue Service. John S.

Rendleman, executor, said in his last report the IRS tax lien on the estate has been revised upward from $370,000 for income taxes and penalties to more than $1 million. Rendleman, president of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, said attorneys for the estate were served with an adjustment on the income tax for the years 1965-1970 that raised the lien to the new level. In his report on receipts and disbursements filed Friday to bring estate financial records up to date, Rendleman cited the redemption of $3 million in matured Treasury bonds and the purchase of an equivalent Treasury bond issue. Other assets were bank accounts and certificates of deposit. Cash on hand, in a Mat-toon bank, was listed at Among expenditures listed were state and federal taxes, executor's and attorney's fees, and the settlement of a $14,950 suit brought by Michelin Tire Co.

Essentially, both the original and amended state claims demanded that Rendleman give an accounting of how Powell amassed a fortune. The demand can be made of Rendleman, the claim says, because Rendleman legally as executor, stands in Powell's place. From the time Powell came to Springfield as a Southern II-linois legislator in 1932 until he died in office as secretary of state, the claim says, Powell had no known source of substantial income except his salaries as public official. He was known, however, to hold large amounts of race track stock. Moreover, as public official, Public MARRIAGES David T.

Her recent work is mostly oil on canvas and masonite or oil washes on canvas. The March 11 showing will feature about 25 of Tina's paintings.

One will be auctioned. Her work is characterized by the use of warm subdued earth colors, applied with a loose brush in an impressionistic flair. She says she seeks out the "exotic and unusual, yet simple and noble the salt of the earth." Tina says she tries to depict her subjects with a "flowing warmth." Though she has had very little formal training, Tina's interest in art stems from her childhood. At her family's encouragement, she began studying on her own some of the well-known European artists. Though Tina feels that perfection is not attainable especially for an artist she believes she must strive for it.

House OKsBillOn Indian Crafts SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) A bill that would require merchant identification of imitation Indian arts and crafts offered for sale in New Mexico was passed Monday by the New Mexico House of Representatives. The measure, approved by a 43 to 22 would require that a tag carrying the words "Indian imitation" be attached to all imitation arts and crafts offered for sale in the state. Imitation Indian arts and crafts are identified in the bill as products represented as being made by Indian labor workmanship, but which, in fact, were not handicrafted by Indians, or were made by machine or from synthetic or artificial materials. The sponsor of the bill is Rep.

Leo Watchman, D-McKinley-San Juan. He is a Navajo Indian. Watchman told the House that imitation Indian crafts coming into the state for sale are increasing. This includes machine-made jewelry and rugs from Mexico, he said. The bill now goes to the Senate.

"He's catching cold," she told Salene. "That room is full of chills. I know he's cold be- cause he told me." Even though the pair was moved to another room, the woman remained dissatisfied, To combat boredom, jurors were treated to meals in different hotel dining rooms and, on occasion, were taken out for a meal, Salene said. De spite the varied cuisine, jurors made special requests. "One man had a thing for sardine sandwiches," Salene said.

"And would you believe I didn't have one can of sar dines in the hotel?" A shopping trip by a U.S. marshal remedied that, he said. But another marshal pur chase was not as helpful, Sa lene recalled. When a jar of peanut butter was taken to the juror who wanted it, the man said: "This is creamy peanut butter. I don't eat that, All eat is chunky peanut butter." And jurors watching tele vision insisted on having pop corn.

"We didn't have popcorn in the hotel either," Salene said, "So we fetched some and pop ped it for them. Even this did not provide enough distraction for one woman who kept complaining to fellow jurors and the mar shals about the interruption of her sex life. "One marshal told me that he never blushed so much in all his life," Salene said. Kerner and Isaacs were convicted Feb. 19 in U.S.

District Court of conspiracy, bribery, fraud and income tax evasion in connection with a racetrack stock transaction hen Kerner was governor of Illinois between 1961 and 196S. Kerner also was convicted of perjury. Salene was not sure what the bill was for the jurors' stay but the government paid for it all mcluding the sardines, peanut butter and popcorn. Despite the difficulties. Salene said he would be willing to go through it ill again.
