Major ATTEST: Helen Youn«. city Clerk Bottle Cap Crown Won't Be Displayed WASHINGTON (AP) - Pros- I I c n t Nixon's bottlo-cap "crown" may not be displayed at a U.S. exhibit in Berlin next month aflcr all. Up to a few days ago, the U.S. Information Agency was going lo have the crown--made from auto emblems, bottle caps and other odds an ends--shipped lo the annual German Industry fair opening in Berlin Sept. 15. The theme of this year's fair Is on environment and technology, said USIA project officer Paul Kcrvin. He said the USIA display will feature the ,heme "garbage Is beautiful" Lo stress recycling. So be thought it approrlalc, Kcrvin said, to include in the show the head gear of Irash- llke items which appeared in the August Issue of The National ' Lampoon,' The " magazine called it "The Great Crown of King Dick" and ran a composite photo picturing it on Nixon's head, along with some uncomplimentary remarks. Kervin told the Lampoon that the "crown" would be shown at the 10-day Berlin fair. He said USIA would pay shipping costs. This was until Kervin's boss, Gerhard Drechsler, chief of U S I A ' s exhibits division, learned about it. The project had never been okayd by those responsible for what will be shown at the U.S. exhibit, Drechsler said. He saic it was only through a slipup that the proposal went as far as it did. The junior officials "didn'l obtain authorization to do it, 1 ' he said. "They won't get it." At Eddie Jaffc Associate in New .York City, a public-rela lions firm which had publicizcc the Lampoon's expected display In Berlin, a spokesman said he had not yet heard 'of USIA's turndown. He said plans are still under way for a mock crowning of a Nixon look-alike In New York Tuesday. Lawsuit Over Bid Specifications May Be Filed LITTLE ROCK CAP)-- How ard Harper of Little Rock, president of Hie Arkansas Of (ice Machine Dealers" Associ ation, says that a lawsuit prob ably will be filed soon over new bid specifications for the sale ol office machinery to state agencies. Harper said the bid spccifica lions shutout or reduce competition on some kinds of office machines, principally typewriting and dictating equipment. He said the contracts would result in wasteful use of tax money. Some of the office machine dealers believe the new bid specification favor Inter national Business Machines. William Gaddy, administrate! of the state Purchasing Division, said his agency through the proposed contracts were fair and reasonable. He saic the bid specifications were designed fo strike a balance be tween fairness to dealers am the needs of the state agencies. He said the atlorney gcner al's office had reviewed the bi request and had rendered, an informal opinion that it is legal ly defensible.

(AP) -There wns no cloak and dagger stuff lo it. Just n normiil ommerclal Iransactlon," E. W. Ned Cook said Friday of his orporallon's recent $225-mll- ion sale of soybeans and grain jo Ihe Soviet Union. Cook president of the Mcm- hls-bascd Cook Industries, nc., leaned back In his hlgh- mck leather chair, propped his eel upon his large desk and ixplalncd how the agreement vna reached. When Ihe announcement of he sale was made earlier this week, U.S. Department of Agri culture officials said Ihey con- idered it the start of a mulli- jlliion grain purchase by t h e lussians. Cook said the negotiations, which resulted in the pact, began in June when three representatives of Export Khleb, the purchasing agency for the So viet Union, contacted him. "They asked Us how mucli we would like to offer and we sold all we felt we could reasonably handle," Cook said. NOT UNUSUAL Cook said be does not consider the transaction unusual cept for the amount of commodities involved. His firm has been trading with the Soviet Union since 193G. "Mainly, we have purchaser cotton and sunflower seed oi from them while we have sole cotton, and both European anc U.S. grain to them," he said. "Really, the only thing differ cnt is the amount in volved...and it Is the larges single sale this company has ever made," Cook added. "These people are very (a mlliar about U.S. business They know our language anc the various phrases we use here in business and are vcr' competent and well trained ' Cook said of the Soviet repre sentatives. Cook himself is no strange lo the Soviet way of life, having traveled there last year in wha he termed a "getting acquain ed trip." He said that trip was no directly involved in any way w i t h the mulli-million-dolla purchase. He said he met several times with the Soviet representatives including one in Memphis Cook said he made at least five trips to New York for talks, where the deal was finally closed las week. LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Pros Atty. Jim Guy Tucker of Little Rock said Sunday that he had made his stand clear on'capita punishment. His Republican opponent, E Bethune of Searcy, had again charged in a news conference Sunday that Tucker wa "avoiding the issue." Bethune challenged Tucker t' make his views known to I'm statewide news media in LIttli Rock. He said he had been advise that Tucker had comment 01 capital punishment in r e c e n speeches' in Mountain Homi and Pine Bluff, but he said tha his investigation had shown that Tucker was vague on thr issue. "Tucker was in both place; recently, but he again avoidei the issue by not taking a plea position." Bethune said. "I di not belabor this point in th campaign, but I am not going to let Tucker slip around thi issue or create a phon; record." T u c k e r said he had frequently taken a stand. "Let me make a statemen for the record once and fo all," Tucker said. "I do favo the death penalty under certain circumstances." He said that he would favo capital punishment in cases o planned, premedialed murder the killing of prison guards in an escape attempt and in th killing of a policeman in th line of duty. Tucker said he did not inten- to spend the three months be fore the November election talking about capital punish menl, hut he said it seeme' that was the only thing Bethun had to discuss.

The Republican National Con- Hijackings Drop As Airlines Tighten Security WASHINGTON (AP) _ Tighter security measures b the nation's airlines and a de ciine in fhe number of person arrested have given Federa Aviation Administration off cials hope that would-be hijack crs are being deterred. Th eFAA said 170,078 person u n d e r w e n t special secuit checks in June because the ; appeared to fit the PAA-deve! oped profile of hijacker behav ior. This compared with 80,05 such checks in May. The FAA says 453 person were prohibited from boardin in June because their action were suspicious, they could no properly identify themselves o they were guilty of a law viola lion.

Support For Strong Defense Plank By Republicans Seen vcnllon opens next Monday and the completed platform w i l l b a prcscnled to the convention Tuesday. APPROVAL E X P E C T E D ^ Approval was expected to bo virtually automatic, Rhodes told a news conference on the eve of the four-day platform hearings thnl a.38-page working draft of the platform, which had been reviewed and revised by the White House staff and himself, already was in tho hands of bis committee. "The finished document will, we hope, bear a close resemblance lo the draft," Rhodes- said. Rhodes culmly ansyvercd charges that sessions of the 108- member committee, which will hear some 300 witnesses, will be largely perfunctory because an unpublished draft already exists. Such 'a working draft is standard procedure, Rhodes said, and in this case the White House made so many suggestions that the document grew to 211 pages before it was boiled down again by Rhodes and platform committee aides. Search For Plane Missing Since February Under Way KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -A search is under way again lor a ..light .,, plane that disappeared with two persons aboard last February and never was found. Capt. Costo .McGhee of the Knox County Volunteer Rescue Squad said foul weather prohibited a satisfactory search after the single-engine Piper Cub disappeared shortly before dusk Feb. 10. Piloting the plane, which took off from a private strip in Knox County, was Elmer H. Reynolds,.30, of Knoxville. Authorities say his passenger .was Jinfla Hendrich, 16, sister-in: law of Andrew Tabo, manager of the Cox Sky Ranch where the plane took off. Knox County authorities said Miss Hendrich had been reported as a runaway from her home in Adrian, Mich., shortly before she arrived in Knoxville and a few days before she took off with Reynolds. McGhee said the new search is focusing on a portion of Ft. Loudoun Lake not far from the Cox ranch, the same center; for the first search. .'. Several persons told of seeing an oil slick or the lake after the plane was reported missing. One boy reported actually seeing a light plane go into the lake, but his story was doubted becasue of his age and weather conditions at the time . Additionally, searchers could never find the oil slick. McGhee said Sunday authorities have new evidence to Indicate the plane might be in-tho lake. - . ' · ' , He said .a pilot' tola '.him recently of seeing such a slick. The pilot had not mentioned the slick before because of other oil such reports and because the lake was being searched at the time, authorities said. About 80 men from seven rescue squads from Knax and surrounding counties resumed the search Saturday morning. Brazilian Judge Called A Saint Of The Courtroom . By BRUCE HANDLER RIO ,DE JANEIRO .(AP) -Brazil's poor people cajl him the "St. Francis o f , the^- couir^ troom" or simply "the good judge." But Criminal Court Judge Eliezer Rosa of Rio says he's just applying the law the way it was intended: "as a work of love." Rosa, 62, has gained nalion- wide (ame for his unusual and generally lenient sentences. He lels criminals go, when most other judges would throw the book at Ihem. He gives 10 per cent of his salary to the poor and to families ofi pris oners. And he has refused pro= motion three times to the State Appeals Court, "because I would lose contact with the people." "Society sometimes forces a man to commit a crime," the soft-spoken, while-haired jurisl says. "Society tells a man it's better to have a new car than to ride the .bus. Society creates more desires than means for f u l f i l l i n g them." RULED ON CASE Rosa became a front-page personality last year when he ruled, poetically, on an assault case during Rio's frenzied Carnival. A samba band member had whacked a -fellow over the head with a t a m b o u r i n e in a bar, because the man couldn't keep the rhylhm while lapping his fingers along with an impromptu melody. The judge ordered the defendant to take his tambourine and band to the slum where the p l a i n t i f f lived and serenade his victim in the moonlight. And he admonished from the bench: "You will learn that in the history of the tambourine, it was never raised as an ins t r u m e n t of war. The hands that once played il were those of the beautiful Hebrew woman and the young prophets' of Samuel. Bui you misused your musical i n s t r u m e n t , injuring a companion with it. Your salvation remains with the tambourine, which w i l l sing out as an injured soul in repentance f a r your mistake." SYMPATHETIC Rosa says his tendency lo he easy on defendants is due to his n a t u r a l sympathy for the "little guy" and his com-' mitmcnl to the principles of justice expressed in the Bible.
