O-A (Die Wednesday Morning, September 27, 1 1978 Judge Gives NY Times Reporter Temporary Freedom WASHINGTON tUPI) New York Times reporter Myron Farber won temporary freedom Tuesday under a Supreme court order issued less than an hour before he was to return to jail for refusing to let a judge inspect his files on a murder case. Justice Potter Stewart issued a stay allowing Farber to remain free "until further order of this court." This kind of stay often is granted when one justice, or the full court, needs more time to consider a case. Sydney Schanberg, Times metropolitan editor, said Farber had been advised not to discuss the case because it was before the high court. But Schanberg quoted Farber as saying, "I am gratified that the Supreme Court has granted thestay. 1 " Farber already has spent Annual Holy Name Mass Set The Holy Name Society of Holy Rosary Catholic Church will conduct its annual mass, to be followed by a Father-Son Breakfast, at 7 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 8. The event erroneously was announced for this coming Sunday in Monday's edition of The Galveston Daily News. The mass is offered for the spiritual welfare of the civil and religious leaders of the community. The Rev. Msgr. J. Fiorenza, chancellor of the Galveston- Houston diocese, will be the celebrant. The Father-Son Breakfast will follow the mass at 8:30 a.m. in the Grecian Room of the Galvez Hotel. State Rep. Mickey Leeland of Houston will be the main speaker. Special guests will include civil officials of the state, city and county and clergymen and laymen of various demoninalions. Tickets for the breakfast are $4.75 and are available from any member of the Holy Name Society. The Rev. Louis Saporlto, SSJ, pastor of Holy Rosary Church, is the spiritual director of the Holy Name Society. Wilfred Simon Is president, and the Rev. Mr. Richard Haller is past president. 27 days in jail for refusing to let a judge inspect his files on a murder case, and the newspaper has paid $130,000 in fines in the confrontation belsveen the judiciary and the press. The New Jersey Supreme Court freed Farber on Aug. 30, but last week upheld civil and criminal contempt convictions against him and the newspaper. The court had ordered Farber back to jail by 4 p.m. Tuesday, and the Times to resume paying a $5,000-a- day fine until he complies. Lawyer Floyd Abrams flew to Washington Tuesday morning and filed papers asking the Supreme Court to let Farber remain free and to suspend the fine against the newspaper until tlic justices can act later this year on their formal appeal of the state court ruling. After Justice William Brennan disqualified himself from the case, it was submitted to Stewart, who stayed the judgment of the New Jersey Supreme Court, suspending the fine and allowing Farber temporarily to remain free. The formal appeal by the Times and Farber challenges the state court's 5-2 ruling that the reporter has no First Amendment protection against being compelled to turn over his notes, and that the privilege, granted by the New Jersey shield law is outweighed by the Constitution's guarantee that a defendant shall have a fair trial. Floods Hit State THE STRAND of Galveston, once "The Wall Street of the Southwest" contains one of the finest concentrations of 19th century iron-front buildings in the United States. In the 1850s through the 1890s, The Strand and the port of Galveston were the center of commercial activity for Texas and much of the Southwest. Now The Strand will come alive once more with the Strand Street Festival '78. The arts and crafts festival will be staged from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. It is being sponsored by The Strand Street Merchants Association, with Dick Waterman as executive director. Those interested in more information can call 765-7721 or 763-3331. By Unlled Press tatenulloul Heavy rainfall brought cooler temperatures to West Coast areas plagued by recent heatwaves Tuesday, but triggered flooding in Texas and New Mexico. 1 n Hope, N. M . , authorities, barred from a ground search by high waters, waited for a break in a three-day rain to send a helicopter to search for three hunters missing in the Guadalupe Mountains. State Police said the search area was "mountainous ranch country" in Eddy County about "20-25 miles south' of Hope, the nearest community. Several days of steady rain in southeastern New Mexico filled normally dry arroyos and low-lying areas, the National Weather Service said. A flash flood watch was in effect for three counties in southeastern New Mexico and a 15-foot rise was expected in parts of the Rio Grande. Rain and thundershowers persisted throughout western Texas and spread into western Oklahoma and western Kansas. Some roads in Texas and New Mexico were under water and flash flood warnings were posted for northern portions of Hudspeth and Culbertson Counties in Texas. The Weather Service said residents in Southern California enjoyed a slight reprieve from record temperatures. Los Angeles recorded 105 degrees Monday and the mercury in Palm Springs reached the nation's highest temperature at 109. The nation's lowest temperature Tuesday was 27 at Watertown and Massena, N.Y.. Elsewhere temperatures were generally in the 40s and 50s, while some 30- degree readings were scattered through the Central Rockies and Central Plateau. Forecasters said a large high-pressure system produced chilly temperatures from northern Michigan to Maine.
