ST. PETERSBURG TIMES THURSDAY. JULY 1, 1976 1 5B obituaries Zeigler jury without verdict after first day of deliberation United Preee Niternetlonel Gilbert Leggett, dentist and black activist EAGAN EARLIER told the jury the state's witnesses "couldn't lie" and asked the jurors to find Zeigler, owner of the W. T. Zeigler Furniture Store of Winter Garden guilty of first-degree murder.

Defense attorney Ralph V. Hadley III countered by arguing that even "if you are 90 per cent sure Tommy Zeigler did it you must acquit him 90 per cent sure is not good enough; 90 per cent means a verdict of not guilty." The remarks by the opposing lawyers came in the closing arguments of the trial that began four weeks ago. Zeigler is charged in the shooting murders of his wife, Eunice, 31; her parents, Perry Edwards, 72, and Virginia Edwards, 62, of Muultrie, Ga. and Charles Mays 35, of Oakland, a store customer. The state says the killings were part of a plot to collect $520,000 in insurance on his wife.

GILBERT LEGGETT JACKSONVILLE The circuit court jury, deliberating the first-degree murder charges against Winter Garden furniture store owner William T. Zeigler, recessed for the night at 7:06 p.m. Wednesday. Following more than five hours of deliberation, the seven whites and Ave blacks on the panel were sent to a local motel after receiving instructions from Orange-Osceola Circuit Court Judge Maurice M. Paul not to discuss the case or watch news accounts of the trial on television.

The jury is to resume deliberations today at 9 a.m. The case had gone to the jury at 2:03 p.m. Wednesday at the conclusion of rebuttal remarks by State Attorney Robert Eagan. By PEGGY PETERMAN It elf rturj TifflM Steff WrHer around larida compassion and friendship to all and his friends could be found from 22nd Street to more prominent areas of the community. A 1971 St.

Petersburg Times Floridian magazine article described Dr. Leggett as: "A man in the middle both respected by the white power structure, which is committed to building upon tradition, and loved by the meek as well as the moat militant blacks, who are determined to crack the white man's double standard." Many indigent blacks remember "Sonny" Leggett as the man who would stop whatever he was doing to serve their dentistry needs. "It was not unheard of to find Dr. Leggett working away late at night on people he knew would never be able to pay him a dime," a friend once said. His survivors include his wife Daisy two sons, Ray Alton of St Petersburg and Gilbert of Virginia Union University in Richmond; a granddaughter, Kianna; his mother, Mrs.

Altaire Hardon Leggett of St. Petersburg; and a brother, William, of Atlanta, Ga. Funeral services will be held at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church, Saturday, July 3, at I p.m. Judge rebuked for improper advances TALLAHASSEE The State Supreme Court Wednesday ordered the reprimand of Dade County Circuit Judge John Gale, who was accused of making improper sexual advances to a female lawyer who had a case pending in his courtroom. The court did not give details of the charges or name the female lawyer involved in the incident.

It based its finding on a hearing by the Judicial Qualifications Commission, which reviewed the case earlier this year. Dr. Gilbert M. LtgKett.47, St. Petersburg dentist and former chairman of the committee for education for the NAACP, died Tuesday (June 29, 197C).

A native of St. Petersburg, Dr. Leggett, better known as "Sunny" to his friends and patients, started his dentistry practice with his father, the late Gilbert H. Leggett, at 2I54 Ninth Ave. S.

Dr. Leggett was a graduate of Gibbs Senior High School, Morehouse College in Atlanta and Meharry Medical College in Nashville. He was a life member of the NAACP and also a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. He was known statewide as a fighter who championed many causes of black people but was most formidable in his appearances before the Pinellas County School Board in the early days of desegregation and in voicing grievances against the St. Petersburg Police Department in connection with problems in the black community.

He had been chairman of the government representation subcommittee of the Community Alliance. But the ever-smiling dentist was best known for his St. Petersburg youth found dead in surf bird feed has been exhausted only twice in recent years because of incursions by wild ducks and sea gulls; and no elephant carcasses have been left atop the barn, while bodies of smaller animals have been put in plastic sheets to limit odor. Sham-marriage 'arranger' convicted MIAMI A Cuban exile who said he was a double agent for the CIA while acting as an arms buyer for Fidel Castro was convicted by a federal jury Tuesday of arranging sham marriages for aliens facing deportation. Vidal Morales in testimony in his defense, told the jurors he was a mere errand boy for attorneys operating the sham marriage scheme.

He said he was prosecuted only because he refused to give the names of the attorneys to immigration agents. Witnesses testified that American citizens were paid $1100 to go through marriage ceremonies with aliens and after the aliens received resident status in the U.S. the marriages were annulled. Morales' attorney said he would appeal the conviction. 4 Alachua County officials indicted GAINESVILLE Three Alachua County commissioners and County Administrator Howard Weston were indicted by the Alachua County grand jury Wednesday for "improprieties" in the handling of county funds.

The grand jury issued a 21-count indictment against County Commission Chairman Jon Wiershow and Commissioners Ed Turlington and Jack Durrance and a four-count indictment against Weston. The investigation began in February with a state audit of the 1973-74 fiscal year, which listed 21 pages of "improprieties" in the handling of county funds by Alachua officials. They included using bond money to pay operational costs, not keeping proper accounts and records, co-mingling of construction funds, failure to appoint trustees to handle bond issues and failure to keep proper records. Recent audits show the county has a short term debt of most of which has been spent on operations since 1973. All the indictments are third-degree misdemeanors based on Florida's Malfeasance Law.

The commissioners will appear before a county judge July 15 to answer the charges. Teacher group backs Barron foe TALLAHASSEE The Florida Teaching Profession (FTP), which has strongly criticized legislative appropriations for school financing, Wednesday endorsed Tallahassee businessman Travis Marchant, who is running against Senate President Dempsey Barron, D-Panama City. The FTP and Florida Education Association-United, two teachers' lobby groups, are trying to unseat Barron because of the legislator's firm stands against increasing taxes for providing additional school revenues. Barron feels that recommended levels of school financing are adequate and said earlier this week that the two lobbby groups do not fairly represent views of teachers. Many teachers, said Barron, are supporting his bid for re-election.

FBI arrests man wanted in Chicago JACKSONVILLE A former professional wrestler wanted on burglary charges in Chicago was arrested by the FBI in Jacksonville Wednesday along with a man sought on armed robbery charges in Miami. The FBI identified the two as Helbert Eugene Sanner, 45, of Arkansas City, and Edward Allen Rose, 21. Sanner has been charged with three burglary counts for crimes in Elk Grove Village, Wilnett and Chicago 111., the FBI said. Rose was charged on an armed robbert warrant issued last week in Dade County, a spokesman said. The FBI said Sanner, a former wrestler, was visiting relatives in the Jacksonville area.

Rose was arrested in the same vehicle with Sanner. 'Lubbers' moving east COCOA If you thought love bugs were bad, get a load of the Florida lubber. The lubbers are multicolored grasshoppers ranging up to three inches long that have been spotted on Interstate 95 heading east toward Brevard County's inhabited sections. At times they have been seen in thick concentrationss along the road, with many of them hopping to their doom beneath car tires. Unlike the love bug, Florida lubbers eat vegetation and are "quite destructive and will eat anything green" in their path, says Lowell Loadholtz, county extension director.

"They are heavier than normal this year," he said Tuesday. Sylvester Rose, county extension agent, said he also has received reports this year about the influx of the locust-like pests. The pests can be controlled with insecticide, officials said. American Party leader criticized TALLAHASSEE American Party members castigated a party leader who negotiated a so-called conservative coalition with Republicans to support Dr. John Grady's U.S.

Senate bid, a published report said Wednesday. Tom Anderson of Pigeon Forge, the American Party presidential candidate, said the alliance with Republicans was opposed by Florida members of the party, reported Roland Page, Washington correspondent of the New York Times-Florida newspapers. Anderson said Florida members of the party "read the riot act" to state chairman Mark Andrews at a meeting in Orlando last month. His account was confirmed by several Florida members of the party, Page said. nard Sr.

The 20-year-old son of a prominent St.

Petersburg surgeon was found dead near Palm Beach Tuesday evening. Police said he was found drowned in the surf after suffering an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He was the son of Dr. and Mrs. David Smith Hubbell Jr. Dr. Hubbell is a former president of the Pinellas County Medical Society and a member of the executive committee of the American Cancer Society.

CREAL FUNERAL HOME 896-2602 Wildlife group backs Holey Land canal TALLAHASSEE The Florida Wildlife Federation announced its support Wednesday of a plan for construction of a small canal across the northern boundaries of the "Holey Land" in Palm Beach County.

The plan was developed by hydrologist James H. Hartwell as an alternate proposal to the Division of State Planning recommendation to flood the Holey Lands with up to five feet of water. Hart-well, a former U.S. Geological Survey engineer, said his plan would send the water over the marshlands, which would act as a filter to clean up nutrient loaded waters. The water then would be sent through culverts to Conservation Area III.

He said water pumped from the Miami Canal could be sent through the small distribution canal and allowed to overflow onto the Holey Land in an effort to restore the natural wetland characteristics of the area.
