Destination: Las Vegas. Flying in his private. (win- engine, eighl-passenger crafl, liailey (his « p eek is making (he round trip daily after Hie court sessions to give lectures lo a lawyers' meeting in the gambling resort. The pace is exhausting. Is he so confident of vinning Ihe Hearst case that he can take on I he extra burden in the middle of it? "I'm thinking about it as much up here as I would down there." he said during Ihe journey. Besides, he saiil. his staff is on lop of the case. "He thought the trial would be over." said his wife Lynda. Besides, Bailey has a personal interest in Ihe sessions, which are a week-long school in trial advocacy, lie said he and a n o t h e r lawyer f o r m e d the course. About 80 attorneys are attending, paying $500 each. - "That's {40,000 gross, but there are no profits after expenses," said Bailey. "The academic process is stimulating in itself, for all the rushing." The rushing never stops. Monday, 3:55 p.m.: Bailey hurries out of Ihe courthouse and into a Cadillac, accompanied by his wife, associate attorney Henry Gonzalez and a reporter. Two minutes later, the group, driven by Bailey investigator John M c N a l l y , is on the f r e e w a y , headed for San Francisco International Airporl. Bailey indicates he thinks Ihe jury has made up its mind, saying, "1 think we're beating a dead horse." 4:14 p.m.: The car pulls into the airporl. Bailey's copilol, Dave Savage, is waiting. Bailey often flies his plane, but on this day, fighting off th2 flu and taking medication, he leaves the driving lo Savage and helps himself lo cigarettes and a few drinks. "II relaxes me up there. I kick around what I'm going lo do," says Bailey. 4:23: "Gosh," says Lynda Bailey, "we're taking off inlo a thunderstorm. Gonzalez laughs with glee. "1 used to be fearless," says Mrs. Bailey, a former airline stewardess. "But now I get very nervous." ·1:30: Smooth takeoff. No thunderstorm. San Francisco gleams below. "I wish he'd take il easier," says Lynda Bailey of her husband. "1 don't like to see Ihe lines under his eyes gel intense. It's frightening. "With a little bil of care, lie could lasl lo be 100 instead of 90. Then nobody could lalkabout his young 80-year-old wife," she laughs. She continues: " He seems lo be able to drink about as much as he wants with no effect." 5:47: The lights of the Las Vegas Strip emerge through the clouds. 5:53: Suddenly it's bumpy and rough. "1 don't like it. I don't like it," says the blonde and beautiful Mrs. Bailey. 5:56: Perfect touchdown at McCarran Airport. Car waiting. Bailey is asked about the Hearst trial decision. "It's Russian Itoulette," says Bailey. "And we're in Ihe right town for it." Fast, fast, fast. 6:15: Car pulls up al MOM Grand Holel. Bailey heads alone for the cocktail party that precedes his lecture, while tliose (raveling with him grab a bite. "That's what bolhers me," says his w i f e . "He feels obligated lo go to the party." 7:02: Bailey begins his lecture and finishes an hour and 40 minutes later. The Hearst case comes up again. "It could go either way," he says. 8:50: The car leaves from Ihe MGM Grand. There is almost dead silence en route to the airport. Everyone seems exhausted. In an airporl waiting room, Bailey stands by a slol machine. "Do you gamble?" he is asked. "No, 1 don't like to do that." 9:16: Takeoff.
