Shopping Mall Grave For Elephant P 0 N T I A C, Mich.WT--Littl Jenny, an 8,000-pound elephan which costarred with Elizabet] Taylor in the movie "Elephan Walk," now lies hurried outside the Pontiac Mali shopping cen ter. The 60-year-old beast died o: old age Friday while appearing with a carnival-circus at the nearby Waterford T o w n s h i p mall. At the order of local health officials and police, an impromptu funeral service was held and the elephant was hurried near the sopt where she breathed her last. Circus officials said Jenny became ill Thursday and a loca veterinarian prescribed antibiotics. Dr. Robert Willson, director of the Detroit Zoo, was called in for consultation but concluded there was little to be done. Jenny quietly slumped to the ground and died Friday. The death left circus and mall officials in a quandry over what to do with the carcass. Finally, after threats from the police and consultations with the mall owners, it was agreed to bury Jenny on the spot. A backhoe dug a nine-foot- deep grave, but didn't quite have the strength to push Jenny to her rest. So trainer Guy Gossing brought over Jenny's long-time companion Babe, who is now the last survivor of the 10 elephants in "Elephant Walk," and she nudged Jenny into her grave.

Dial 348-4848 By Lurry Hobbs NASHVILLE, Tenn.~*l- After firing ISO striking guards, Tennessee closed its maximum security Brushy Mountain State Prison Saturday and transferred the 400 inmates under heavy guard to other prisons. James Earl Ray, convicted assassin of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., was among the inmates taken from Brushy Mountain at Petros in east Tennessee to the main state prison in Nashville, 200 miles away. Ray was transferred in a spe- cial three-car convoy that moved out of Petros before dawn ahead of a caravan carrying 185 inmates in buses and station wagons. State troopers, armed with handguns, shotguns, rifles and submachine guns, were stationed along the route as the prisoners were transferred. '"It was nothing significant," Claude Armour, state safety commissioner, said of the tight security around Ray. "But he's nationally known and we wanted to make sure there was no criticism involved in his method of transfer." C o r r ec t iens Commissioner Mark Luttrell said the decision to close Brushy Mountain and transfer the prisoners was made Friday after the guards were fired. "Due to the conditions that developed, we felt we could not get sufficient help and might as well shut it down," Luttrell said at a Saturday news conference. When the guards struck Thursday--in protest of disciplinary action taken against two of t h - e m -- s t a t e troopers were called in to man the guardposti. But, Luttrell said, the troopers were temporary replacements and could not be used to keep the prison open. "As a result, we felt we had no choice but to move the prisoners to Nashville," he added. The transfer of nearly 200 prisoners to Nashville began shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday. The rest of the 400 Brushy Mountain inmates were removed by Saturday afternoon. About 1000 prisoners, honor farm trustys, were headed for a minimum security center at Only, west of Nashville, authori- ties said. The others were transferred, at least temporarily, to the main state prison. The special convoy for Ray, serving a 99-year sentence in the slaying of King in April 1968, moved out about 15 minutes ahead of the caravan of five buses and 25 cars and station wagons. Ray was placed in a patrol car that carried two hefty state troopers and was driven by a third. That car was followed by one carrying more state troop- Wife's Law 'Appetite 9 Lost { White Dining on Parchment DETROIT (AP) -- Gloria Judge, 24, maye have lost her appetite for legal measures. Mrs. Judge said when she told her husband she had obtained a court peace bond to prevent him from beating her, he forced her to eat the 5-by-8- inch parchment document, then beat her again. Clifton Judge, 34, xvas fined $100 after pleading guilty to an assault and battery charge- ers and another carrying Armour and Luttrell. The special convoy arrived at the Nashville prison at 7:45 a.m., one hour and 15 minutes ahead of the longer convoy. Ray was whisked- into the prison as armed guards maintained tight security along his entrance path. Waiting newsmen and photographers caught only a fleeting glimpse of th« confessed slayer. 59 Brilliant Decorator LAMPS RECLINERS La-Z-Boy, Futor!an| Your Choice of Styles Was 266. 159.
