HAYS DAILY NEWS 7 December 15, 1976 December 15, 1976 PAGE 6 HAYS DAILY NEWS No Money, No Autopsies SLATON, Tex. (UPI) —The county's refusal to pay higher autopsy fees means murderers may go unpunished, according to a justice of the peace. "If a man entertaining homicidal thoughts knows he can not be prosecuted to the limits of the law, now is the time," Arvin Stafford said Tuesday. Physicians Pathology Service Friday ceased performing autopsies requested by Lubbock County peace officers after commissioners refused to increase the fees from $175 to $250 per autopsy. The first case involving the lack of an autopsy arose this week. Authorities searching a wrecking yard discovered the decomposed body of Seville Garza in the trunk of his auto. Relatives had reported him missing from his Lubbock home two weeks ago. "I have been working on it ever since last night," Stafford said. "There is no way I can get an autopsy performed. I've exhausted every possible lead. "I have no earthly idea what I'll put on the death certificate. I may not even sign it." What this means for investigators is that "I can't make a ruling on it at all," he said, thus impairing possible prosecution. Meeting Monday, the county commissioners said a suggestion by the local medical society to hire a medical examiner would cost too much. However, no other physician is willing to do the work. "I'm very disappointed that men of such high learning can not remedy the situation like the one that came up," Stafford said. Sheriff C.H. Blanchard said he felt there was "foulplay" in Garza's death. The man in his mid-20s, was confined to a wheelchair.

(UPI Photo) Like King Midas, Howard Hughes In History's Grasp HOLLYWOOD (UP1) Howard Hughes is gone but not forgotten — at least not by the courts, biographers and filmmakers, not to mention authors of phony wills. 'Billionaire Hughes, like King Midas, clearly is doomed to legendary status now and forever, enshrined by worshipers of wealth. Whereas the late J. Paul Getty and the equally late Aristotle Onassis (Jackie Kennedy notwithstanding) may have been as rich as Hughes, they were not the material from which folklore is created. Neither of them was accused -of wearing Kleenex boxes on his feet. Nor, so far as is known, did they design brassieres for Jane Russell. If Getty and Onassis had strings of movie star mistresses, word never got out. The list of Hughes' conquests reads like the film academy's directory of actresses. H. Hughes was a billionaire with flair. He is sure to be heralded even more greatly in death than in life for the excellent reason that he no longer is around to deny, defend or dismiss the rumors and tales of his colorful life. The first film story on the man, "Howard, The Amazing Mr. Hughes," will be aired early next year in two two-hour segments on consecutive nights by CBS- TV. Roger Gimbel, .an old hand at producing televisions shows (in- eluding ''The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman"), based his Hughes rriovle on the book by Noah Dietrich, who for years was the billionaire's No. i associate. Aside from hassles with Summa Corp., Hughes' conglomerate, GlmbeVs biggest problem was finding an actor to fit the title role. He finally found Tommy Lee Jones, who resembles the young Hughes although he is neither as tall nor as skinny as Hughes. He also is pathetically less well heeled. "We tried to get Warren Beatty for the part," Gimbel said. "We offered him a million dollars. But Warren refused. He's still talking about doing his own theatrical motion picture on Hughes. "Our film starts with Hughes at 20 and traces his life until the time of his death. We're being as factual as possible under the circumstances. "Hughes didn't talk to many people and there were rio interviews the last 20 years of his life except for that telephone press conference he held five years ago. "We've researched books, tapes, news accounts, photographs and newsreels. And, of course, Dietrich has been a tremendous help because he was around Hughes in the interesting early years when more facts were available." Among the film's highlights are the story of .the Spruce Goose, Hughes' plywood plane, his pursuit of sexy movie stars, his passion for golf and record setting flights and, Inevitably, his penchant for privacy. Gimbel thought it vital that he should understand Hughes' psychological quirks. He took key material on the billionaire to the Hartford Institute for Living In Connecticut. Psychiatrists studied the information andcame back with their own picture of Hughes. "That provided me with the most essential information of all," Gimbel said. "They gave me an analysis of the personality >WHY PAY MORE- MOP THE WI THIES "T" BONELESS HAMS SWIFT PREMIUM DUCKLING [ft FoJgers COFFEE Ib. R.g. $2.09 II-—'II Ib. SWIFT PREMIUM CANNED HAMS 3 Ib.
