Louisiana governor to be tried second time NEW OR- 1 LEANS (AP) -I The government | will seek to retry Gov. Edwin Ed-1 wards, his brother! and three other people on federal racketeering and t, fraud charges Edwards stemming from a $10 million hospital investment scheme, a prosecutor said Saturday. "Maybe we can do it better the second time," said U.S. Attorney JohnVolz. The first trial ended in December with three defendants freed for lack of evidence, and a mistrial declared for Edwards and the other four. Volz announced his decision at a news conference here, and Edwards followed up with a news conference of his own in Baton Rouge. "This is a political case, rather than a legal one," said Edwards, a Democrat. "It's not surprising he decided to retry it." A strong majority of the jurors in the first trial, which lasted three months, voted to find the men innocent on all counts. Nevertheless, Volz said he and his assistants will present a "stream- lined" case to a new jury. He said the next trial might take only five or six weeks and that he would try to make the case easier to understand. Volz said he would probably try the case this summer. But Edwards said he would seek a trial in late February or March in hopes of getting the matter behind him before the state Legislature convenes in regular session in April. "If he thinks he's going to dillydally this case until spring or fall to get more headlines for himself, he's wrong," Edwards said. Volz said he consulted Justice De- partment officials in Washington before deciding to retry the case. The decision to retry was his, he said, but added, "They are behind it 100 percent." U.S. District Judge Marcel Livaudais is to hear defense motions to throw out all the remaining charges on Jan. 28. r Mid America Inn Restaurant ^ SUNDAY BRUNCH 11 am-2 pm Free Sundae 1842N.9th Salina, KS The Salina Journal Sunday, January 12,1986 Page 26 I FROM THE ESCORTED TOUR PEOPLE I Feb. 13 FLORIDA BN 16 Days The Florida Vacation You Have Been Waiting For! • THE RIGHT TIME - THE RIGHT PLACES • A ONE-DAY CRUISE TO FREEPORT ON GRAND BAHAMA TWO NIGHTS IN MIAMI BEACH Includes 3 meals on board, swimming pool, deckchairsi ft island shopping SIGHTSEEING MIAMI.

Jerry Falwell and his top aides have embarked on a "spiritual rescue mission" to a major fundamentalist congregation that has been torn apart by its pastor's public confession of adultery. Falwell, founder of the conservative lobby Moral Majority, is to preach Tuesday as interim pastor of the Bangor Baptist Church, where only about 100 people have been showing up since November to worship in a sanctuary that has seats for 2,000. As recently as last fall, thousands flocked to the church on the outskirts of this city of 30,000 far from the Bible Belt to hear the Rev. Herman C. "Buddy" Frankland, who founded the church nearly 20 years ago and has become one of Maine's most outspoken advocates of fundamentalist causes. Frankland first got attention outside Bangor in 1974 with his vocal opposition to the formation of a gay rights group at the University of Maine. He denounced the group during his program on a local radio station; the station canceled his program. Seven years later, Frankland founded WHCF, a 100,000-watt religious FM station. Frankland, 50, also ran an unsuccessful independent campaign for governor in 1978, and more recently led a legal battle that won Maine's Christian schools some independence from state regulation. But on Oct. 15, the walls came crashing down. "I am guilty of adultery," Frankland said at a news conference. "I have no excuse nor will I attempt to make one." He gave no details. Frankland, married and the father of four children, said he would step down from the pulpit within 30 days. But a month later, he appeared at a prayer meeting to say that God wanted him to remain in his post. All but a handful of the congregation walked out — and most have not been back. Falwell and Frankland are graduates of Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Mo. Falwell has preached at Frankland's church and the two have been identified as friends. However, five aides from Falwell's Thomas Road Baptist Church and Liberty University, who came to Bangor from Lynchburg, Va., last week are distancing themselves from Frankland. Ed Dobson, vice president of the university, said one of Falwell's conditions for assuming control of the congregation at the invitation of church deacons was that Frankland leave both the pulpit and the community. Dobson said Falwell's decision to become interim pastor is the first time he has accepted such a "spiritual rescue mission."
