WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Supreme Court again has .ruled against two classes of .women — divorcees caring for small or handicapped children, and married women desiring to retain their own names for all legal purposes. The court unanimously held Monday that when a wage earner retires or is disabled Social Security benefits can be denied a divorced wife^under age 62 burdened with child care, while granted to married women in the same • circumstances. The court also rejected the '.appeal of a Lexington, Ky., •woman who used her maiden 'name for social and legal purposes but was prevented ,'from using it on her driver's 'license. ' Sylvia Scott Whitlow, an instructor at the University of Kentucky School of Jour- '.'nalism, sued to challenge an ;iinwritten regulation of the .state Driver Licensing •Division requiring married 'names. She was told her .license had to show Van tubergen, her husband's last ;name. 'In a lower court Ms. 'Whitlow's arguments foun- dered on a 1972 action by the Supreme Court upholding a similar practice in Alabama. The justices rejected her appeal without comment. The Social Security case was brought by Mrs. Helen de Castro of Chicago, 56 at the time, who was caring for a 24- year-old retarded daughter. She was denied benefits because she had not reached 62 when her former husband retired, although had she still been married to him she would have beemeligible. In recent years the court has declared unconstitutional a part of the Social Security Act providing survivors' benefits to young mpthers but not to young fathers. On the other hand it has upheld a provision which in , general barred widows' benefits to women married to the wage earner less than nine months. Speaking for the court in the de Castro case, Justice Potter Stewart said Congress does not act unconstitutionally merely because classifications under its laws are imperfect or in practice result in some inequality. He said the purpose of the old-age and disability aspects of the Social Security system is not simply to pay money to those who need it most but to provide workers and their families with "basic protection against hardships created by the loss of earnings "Divorce by its nature works a drastic change in the economic and personal relationship between husband and wife," Stewart said. "Congress could have rationally assumed that divorced husbands and wives depend less on each Other for financial and other support than do couples who stay married." Last week the justices ruled that employers do not violate federal law by excluding pregnancy from their disability insurance plans. Longef s Diary Won't Be Used .. DENVER (UPI) - Singer .Claudine Longet's diary, which allegedly detailed her deteriorating love affair with the man she is accused of shooting to death, has been ruled inadmissible as prosecutor evidence by the Colorado Supreme Court. •. The state high court Monday 'also said prosecutors could not .use as evidence blood tests .and urine samples taken from Miss Longet after pro skier .Vladimir "Spider" Sabich was '$hot at the couple's luxurious '.mountain home in the resort .town of Aspen last March. A private security officer who rushed to the home after the shooting, said Miss Longet pointed to Sabich as he lay ^bleeding from a single stomach wound on a bathroom floor and told him '"I shot Spider, help him.'" ' The diary was confiscated by Pitkin County Sheriff's Lt. Bill Baldridge from'Miss Longet's dresser drawer while $he rode in an ambulance with her fatally wounded lover to an Aspen Hospital. He also demanded that Miss Longet undergo blood and urine tests. "Clearly, a personal diary secreted under clothing in one's bedroom dresser drawer is an item of the kind intended to be protected by the Fourth 'Amendment's warrant requirement," the court said. •'Indeed, it'would be difficult •to imagine what papers and ; effects should be more entilled HAYS TAXI SERVICE 628-3712 6 u.m.-Midnight Serving Ellis County Cut out for future us lo privacy than one's personal diary."

SMOKING STAND Insert— 11 x 23 x 11 Furniture Fingerprint Might Void One Howard Hughes Wi ' LOS ANGELES (UPI) The purported "Mormon Will" of Howard Hughes, carrying a windfall of wealth for a desert "good Samaritan," was on the verge of destruction Tuesday by a fingerprint that may bring down criminal charges as one of the biggest attempted swindles in history. If so, Hughes' $2.5 billion fortune could go to relatives he saw little of in life. The legal sponsor of the disputed will, attorney Harold Rhoden, planned to ask a Las Vegas, Nov., judge Tuesday to suspend probate proceedings and demand the Nevada attorney general's office turn over evidence the "will" is a fake. He _promised to withdraw the document if the reports are true. Hhoden, and attorneys for Hughes' relatives fighting the will,' told a Los Angeles Superior Court judge Monday that the FBI, at the request of Nevada, identified a fingerprint on the will's envelope as that of Mclvin Dammar, a Willard, Utah, B !1S station operator. Dubbed the "Mormon Will" because it appeared mysteriously on a. desk in Mormon Church headquarters in Salt Lake City three weeks after Hughes died, it left Hum mar one-sixteenth of Hughes' fortune or more than $100 million. "There are potential criminal charges here," said Nevada Attorney General Knbcrt List about the fingerprint. "What they are and who they might be filed against, I'm not going to say at this point." He would not discuss the fingerprint, but Nevada sources confirmed it had been found. In Ogden, Utah, nummar's lawyer, Roger Dutson, said "we simply deny thai Dummar ever handled that letter or had anything to do with Ihe writing of Howard Hughes' will. That thumbprint is not Melvin Dummar's ..." Outnmnr said his only connection with Hughs came in 1908, when he gave a ride to- Las Vegas lo a shabbily dressed, bleeding old man he found beside a lonely desert highway. The man said he was Howard Hughes, Dummar said. The fight over the document's nu t he nl icily been me a battle of handwriting analysts, centered on whether Ihe will had in fact been written entirely in Hughes' hand giving it legal standing even without witnesses. Attorney .lames Dilworth, representing three Texas relatives of Hughes, told a Los Angeles Superior Court judge Monday thai the FBI identified Utimwar's fingerprint on the "will's" envelope, and on a book and maga/.ine containing samples of Hughes' authentic handwriting.
