I. MONDAY, JUNE, 15, 1988 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THMB Last-Ditch Battles | Are Wagedto Keep Rosenbergs Alive By WARREN ROGERS JR. WASHINGTON (AP) — Pleaders for the lives of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, condemned to die as atom spies [ Thursday, fought last-ditch battles today at the White House and the Supreme Court. The street in front of the White House iast night teemed with thou| sands of placard-bearing demon- i strators, including the Rosenbergs 1 ^brown-eved sons, Michael, 10, and Robert, 6, who brought another [ to President Eisenhower. The Supreme Court, which has refused three times to. review the I case, was scheduled to rule today on an appeal filed Saturday to stay the Rosenbergs' execution set for three days hence. The court's session was expected to be its last before it returns from •ummer recess Oct. 5. If it should grant a stay of execution and agree to review the case, the lives of the husband and wife would be spared at least until a final decision next fall or winter. If not, they must die in Sing Sing's electric chair Thursday night, unless the President should grant them executive clemency. "There Is no question about it if we are denied a stay," said the Rosenbergs' .attorney, Emmanuel H. Bloch. "We will try again for executive clemency." Eisenhower refused their last request last Feb. 11, saying the crime of which they were convicted involved betrayal of their country. (TChe President said they had had a /air trial. It was ijpon this point that the Supreme' jourt appeal was based. Counsel 'for the condemned couple argued new evidence had been found and contended they^were the victims of false testimony at the trial. The White House demonstration was arranged by "The National Committee to Secure Justice in the Rosenberg Case," which picketed the White House on two other occasions last winter, but in smaller numbers. Committee sponsors include some persons prominent in organizations cited by the attorney general as subversive. The committee contends its membership is on an individual basis and, although it says it has made no background checks, assumes many members have no such affiliation.

The committee will start tomorrow on an extensive series of hearings on wholesale revision of the tax laws. One of the Sirst subjects It will consider is-whether to allow working mothers to deduct, for income tax purposes, the cost of hiring someone to care for their children. Eeed said he believed there should be such a provision.

Walter Price was In an improving though serious condition after regaining consciousness, Baptist Hospital officials said. He suffered contusions of the brain and lacerations of the forehead, doctors said. Price was injured Saturday night when struck on the head with a beer bottle by H. Betts, proprietor of the fish market. Mr. Betts told the Courier News this morning that the injured man came into his establishment acting if he "wanted to take over the place." A fight started and "I hit him with a beer bottle," Mr. Betts said. He declined to comment further concerning the affair. The Sheriff's office is investigating though no charges have been liled pending development of Mr. Price's condition. Wild sheep are all horned, but only a few domestic breeds have horns.

Chief Graves must be available at the station office in City Hall .during the majority of his working hours, which also run "12 hours a day, easily" he says, while a desk sergeant-radio operator must be on constant duty Two "meter officers" spend a majority of their time checking for parking meter violations, although they are not totally lost for other duty, by virtue of being "on the street" during working hours. As far as hours go, It becomes exceedingly hard to estimate actual hours put in for any of the men As Chief Graves, himself, says, he's "afraid to leave home on Sundays" or to get more than phone-call distance away from his office, day or night. The Blytheville force's work is set up so that, unlike police chiefs in some cities, the top law enforcement officer here has no time to attend meetings or conferences of police officials to deal with enforcement problems, methods or training. * * * A MUNICIPAL employes' group insurance policy covering: the police force does not include hospitalization coverage.
