P»fe 9A NEWSHBRALD, Panama City, Fla. Monday, Fcbniar?' i9, lfl73 EI: Black, White Soldiers Think Other Gets Better Treatment WASfflNGTON (UPI) A recent Pentagon-funded study shows that both black and white soldiers tend increasingly to believe as they go throuRh Army training that the othi-r rac« ii getting favored treatment. The findings were based on responses given by soldiers who were asked on three separate iccaaions —their first, eighth Man Arrested On Drug Counts A North Carolina man was being processed into the Bay County Jail late Sunday afternoon after being arrested in a St. Andrew's motel and charged with possession of more than 500 tablets of LSD and anipheta mines — "speed" as it is known on the streets. The drugs didn 't get on the streets this time, though, as narcotics investigators from the Bay County Sheriff's Department walked into the motel room where Donald Ray English, 25, of Highpoint, N. C, was staying and confiscated the two different tj 'pes of drugs. The drugs and English, wore taken to the Bay County Jail. The drugs were tested to determine what they were. The lab men reported the drugs were LSD and amphetamines — drugs known as acid and speed in street vernacular. English was charged with the two counts of possession. His bond, taken off of a new "bond schedule" instituted as part of the new judicial reform laws, was set at $5,000 for each charge. He was still being held under the JIO.OOO bond Sunday night. English was scheduled to be arraigned early this morning be- fort a local judge., UNITAX NQW INCOTAX SYSTEMS lOMHOCAVI. PH0NE769.2951 and 16th weeks in the sen'ice — to say how they thought minorities were treated in the Army. Although a majority in both races still believed whites and blacks were being treated equally, the study concluded that the answers "show a steady erosion of belief in equitable treatment." Five per cent of the whites in the first week of basic training thought blacks got favored treatment. This rose to 23 per cent by the end of advanced individual training four months later. Of blacks entering basic training, 15 per cent thought whites were getting better treatment and that opinion was shared 16 weeks later by 38 per cent of the blacks questioned. The survey results were part of a broader study made of men going through basic training during 1971 at Ft. Ord, Calif., and Ft. Jackson, S.C. Working under an Army contract, the Human resources Research Organization of Alex- andria, Va., collected 83,297 responses for the study. The report offered no specific explanation for the attitude changes found. At Ft. Jackson, which draws men primarily from the South, significantly more men of both races lost their belief in equal treatment as they went through training. The drop-off was not so great at Ft. Ord, which draws men primarily from the West. Curtis R. Smothers, acting deputy assistant defense secretary for equal opportunity, told UPI after reviewing the report that "I don't find it disappointing." "You've got the segregation of neighborhoods, and you lake- people out of that environment —black ghettoes and white ghettoes —and put them together for 16 weeks," he said. "After that, if a majority thinks the system is still fair, then you've done pretty well because race is a very obvious factor to most recruits." Deaths And Funerals SfR. EDWIN A.

Robert E. Wideman, 29, whose mother lives in Lakewood, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb. The 20 men, wearing blue slacks and light blue shirts issued to them by their captors, were greeted here by 2,000 cheering persons, mostly Air Force families and Filipino base workers, carrying signs reading: "Free and Beautiful." The group was expected to leave here Wednesday for Travis Air Force Base, Calif., from where they will be ferried to special military hospitals across the country. Many of the 143 men already returned to the U.S. have been released from the special hospitals and have gone home to their families. An Air Force spokesman aboard the freedom flight said the turnover of POWs at Gia Lam airport in Hanoi was delayed 20 minutes because observers from the International Control Commission were caught in traffic and arrived late. Col. James R. Dennett, 47, of Spruce Pine, N.C., head of the American delegation to Hanoi, said he left a sack of mail for U.S. POWs still held. Another officer aboard the flight, information officer Col. Emil Wengel, said the men were quiet as they boarded the plane—but pandemonium broke out after takeoff. MR.

(NEXTTOGAYLORDS) OPEN 9-9 1.6 SUNDAY New Judicial Laws Change Lot Of Lives The new judicial laws in Florida have changed a lot of people's lives — especially the lives of judges. Qrcuit Judge Larry Smith, a new face around the benches of the Bay County Courthouse, got out of bed Sunday morning and went into work — something courthouse veterans looked upon witli awe. Smith is serving his turn as the "Bay County weekend arraigning judge," as law enforce- nient officers call the judge who has to come in to work on weekends to arraign persons charged with felonies. This time, the occasion was the arraigning of Clarence Middleton, 26, of 1623 E. 9th Court, on charges of attempted rape. Middleton was arrested Saturday after a screaming 18-year- old girl called the Panama City Police Department and gave officers her location, along with the cause of her screaming — Middleton, she said, had attacked her, reports show. Smith arraigned Middleton Sunday at 9:45 a.m., and set bond at 52 ,500. Middleion went back to his jail cell after Smith finished setting his bond and explaining to him his rights under the law. At 2:45 p.m., Middleton posted the $2,500 bond and left the jail, with orders from the judge to be back at the courthouse for the March 12 plea day so that charges against him can be read in court, and a trial date can be set. Middleton also will have to enter a plea to the charge that day. Middleton was the only person who had to be arraigned Sunday, as the law requiring arraing- ment of persons picked up for felonies only requires that a per" son must be taken before a judge before 24 hours passes. A North Carolina man was arrested here Sunday afternoon for a felony, but the 24-hour span before he must be arraigned will run until 1:45 p.m. today.

One of the accidents was a hit and run, and the driver who allegedly left the scene was arrested early Sunday morning when he came in to the police station to report the accident. The Saturday accident, which occurred at 8:05 p.m. in front of Gulf Coast Community College, injured two persons slightly and destroyed the car they were riding in. Phillip Douglas Thurman, 17, of P. O. Box 9168, Panama City Beach, along with Laquita Sue Legear, 16, of P. O. Box 485, of Sunnyside Beach, were slightly injured when a car driven by Albert Edisal Hathaway, of Rt. 1 Box 840, Panama City, reportedly hit them head-on in the 5200 block of U. S. 98, near Gulf Coast College, officials reported. The vehicle driven by Hathaway, according to police reports, came out of a drive-in restaurant and headed east on U. S. 98, and then crossed over the centerline in an effort to turn onto 21st Street. Hathaway's car hit the Thurman car head-on, and then left the scene, according to reports. When Hathaway showed up Sunday at 9 a.m. to report the accident, he was charged with failing to report an accident by leaving the scene, and failure to yeild the right of way resulting in an accident. Hathaway is scheduled to appear before the city judge at 2:30 p.m. today. The second wreck, which sent a Tyndall AFB man to the Tyn- -dall Hospital, occurred at 2:30 a.m. Sunday at Jenks Avenue and Eighth Street. A car driven by Jacques Lee 26, of the 4756th Civil Engineer^, ing Squadron at Tyndall, hit two parked cars, and in between hitting the first and sliding into the second, flipped his car over, according to reports. Lee, who was accompanied in the car by Jeffrey S. V /illiams, 20, of the same Tyndall squadron, was later charged with driving while intoxicated and driving without a license. Officers reported that Lee's vehicle hit a car owned by William Lambert, of 3711 E. 8th Ct., first, and then flipped over and slid into a car owned by Clara Matthews, of 831 Jenks Ave. Both the Lambert and Matthews cars were parked and unoccupied at the time of the accident. Lee was taken to the Tyndall Hospital where he was treated and released. Lee also is to appear at today's 2:30 p.m. court session.
