Appeal Expected After Sirhan Is Sentenced LOS ANGELES (AP) Whether the jury decrees death or life in prison for Sirhan Bishara Sirhan in the penalty phase of his trial, it will be a long time before the future of Robert F. Kennedy's murderer is finally determined. Appeals are expected to take a year, perhaps longer. For today's proceeding, prosecutor John E. Howard and de fense attorney Grant B. Cooper said they would not take long to argue their cases before the same jury that last week convicted Sirhan of first-degree murder. Howard, an advocate of the death penalty, said he would call no witnesses and would take only 20 minutes to "point out facts we think important-his lack of remorse, and the effect of political assassination on a democracy." Cooper said the jury, which found Sirhan guilty of first de gree murder Thursday, might begin deliberations on the sentence by late tonight or early Tuesday. be announced by Nelson's Funeral Stock Market In Review By COY C.

McMillan, an attorney from Arkadelphia. was appointed as evidence officer to investigate the charges against the commissioners Rockefeller hoped to oust. The court was unanimous in its opinion, although Chief Justice Carleton Harris and Associate Justice John A. Fogleman disagreed with portions of the majority opinion. The majority held that the mmissioners could not appeal nd receive a new trial in Chanry Court. Fogleman and Hars said they did not believe the urt should become involved in at matter at this point, but ould wait until such issues ·ise. MAJORITY OPINION Associate Justice Conley yrd, in the majority opinion. aid that the language of mendment 35 to the state Con- itution. the Game and Fish ommission Amendment, shows at a commissioner removed y the governor is entitled to a ·ial anew on the merits in the lancery Court of the 1st Dis- ict (Pulaski County) "without igard to any error, defect or her imperfection in the pro- eedings before the governor." The high court said that mendment 35 did not give the overnor the right of subpoena r the compulsory production ' evidence. A new trial in the lancery Court would provide r compulsory attendance of inesses and preservation of IP record. Byrd wrote. Harris, in his concurring opin- on. said that the governor's nding could be appealed to the gents from migrating to the state nor limitation of welfare benefits to those regarded as contributing to the state is a constitutionally permissible state objective," said Justice William J. Brennan Jr. in the majority opinion. The vote was 6 to 3. Chief Justice Earl Warren and Associate Justice Hugo L. Black joined in one dissent. Associate Justice John Marshall Harlan dissented separately. The ruling is a major legal advance for the poor. It is ei- pected to make 100,000 to 200.000 poor people newly eligible for Aid to P'amilies With Dependent Children. This would boost welfare expenses $125 million to $175 million a year. its annual report Sunday thai the number of cities in the United States with daily newspaper service is now 1,500, an increase of 104 since 1945.
