PRECIPITATION 24-hours precipitation as of 5 p.m. 0.00. Total for the month of July 1.82 Injured Man Jailed in Clay From Page One "The people up here were really upset over it," said Cpl. J.N. White of the Clay state police detachment. "We'd been getting calls all morning so I took a look at him in jail about 1:30, He had head and face injuries and had been unconscious. I said they ought to get him to a hospital. You usually take a guy to the hospital when you find him like that." Unable even to give his name by about 3 p.m., Galford was taken to Montgomery General after being jailed about 8 hours. Attendants at the hospital treated the face cuts, and checked for possible alcohol or drug abuse. "There were no signs associated with the use of alcohol, and his eyes were not affected as they often are when drugs are taken," said one nurse. A doctors examination report indicated From Page One Western · But Jack 0. Horton, assistant secretary for land and water, said in a telephone interview Friday that "the tentative decision is to go final" on the disputed environmental impact statement. . He thus confirmed the persistent reports in the department during the week ·that Hathaway had decided to proceed /with publication of the revised coal leasing Impact statement even though a number -of Interior officials regard it as "irretrievably bad" and subject to an almost certain challenge in the courts. . One or more of the environment groups whose opposition to Hathaway's Interior 'appointment delayed his Senate confirmation to the cabinet post for 43 days last ·spring is expected to sue the secretary. Katherine Fletcher, a spokesman for the Environmental Defense Fund, reached by telephone at the group's Denver office, said, "We have as much as told them at Interior that we would sue if they did this, and we will." . Comments on the original 1974 draft of the coal leasing statement were uniformly critical. They came from the government's own Environmental Protection 'Agency as well as from private environmental and Western ranchers' groups. : In the most extensive critique--a 245-page booklet prepared by a group of consultants for the Institute of Ecology here -- the 1974 draft was described as "echoing the sentiments of the coal industry" and otherwise failing almost wholly to justify the leasing of additional federal coal reserves. 4 Barnaby' Creator Johnson, Dies at 68 NORWALK, Conn. ( A P ) - Crockett Johnson, who created the "Barnaby'' comic strip, is dead of cancer at the age of 68. He died at Norwalk Hospital late Friday. Johnson, who lived in Westport with his wife, author Ruth Krauss. was also a writer and illustrator of children's books and a serious artist who painted mathematical abstractions in oils. "Barnaby" first appeared in the old PM tabloid in 1943. Johnson discontinued the strip in 1942 for painting but was prevailed upon eight years later to revive it. Reunions ; AngeI-Campbell-25th annual family reunionjill be at 10 a.m. Aug. 10 at fee home oflfcr. and Mrs. Billy Joe and Doftb F. Campbell Legg in Milton. the youth was "incoherent" but the cause for the symptom was listed as "undetermined." The Ohioan was able to eat, shower and drink coffee later Friday night, and finally remembered a telephone number-- that of his parents in Akron, hospital attendents said. Between long stretches of sleep, Galford awoke to mumble names of persons and places, attendents said, but remained otherwise incoherent. Personnel at the hospital called the number he had remembered, and the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kent Galford of Akron identified the man as their son when a description was given. They arrived in Montgomery to take their son home early Saturday morning. "He wasn't drunk," said Mrs. Galford when contacted at her home Saturday. "He stayed clear of alcohol. He'd been down there looking for work, cause there isn't much work up here. "He said somebody had picked him up 'along the road and some boys beat him up. He doesn't remember where it was he got picked up, but he remembers getting dumped out. "His mind's cleared up some today, but he has an appointment to get a brain wave and head X-rays on Monday. It wasn't right to hold him in jail for that long. He could have died," the man's mother said. Mrs. Evans, the woman who brought Galford to Clay, concurred. "It just wasn't right to lock him in jail. He could have been my young one or your young one." Sheriff Frank Fields could not be reached for comment. The President said he had no idea of the amount of any grain sales and added he could not say whether bread prices would rise because of exports. Questioned about reports that CIA personnel have infiltrated the White House staff in the past, the President said: "As far as I know personally, there are no people presently employed in the White House who have a relationship with the CIA, of which I am personally unaware." He also said it would be premature to make any comment about Alexander Butterfield's relationship with the CIA operative when he served as a top administrative assistant to President Nixon. Reports have said Butterfield was a "contact officer." Ford also was asked if he is considering extending his September pardon of Nixon, which covered only his activities in office, to embrace his recent testimony to members of a federal grand jury. "The decision I made in September was the right decision as to time and otherwise," Ford said, "and I don't think I should speculate on something that hasn't taken place and may not take place." Ford held a breakfast meeting Saturday with Illinois Republicans and was asked if it was totally candid to describe his Midwest visit as nonpolitical. He replied,"... in all honesty I think it is a nonpolitical trip." * · * "IF WE HAVE an early-morning breakfast . . . and maybe spend 25 or 45 minutes, I don't think that can be construed to be political in the over-all sense of the other things that we do." Asked if Vice President Rockefeller would be on his ticket in 1976, the President replied: "The delegates to the Republican National Convention will make that decision." Ford was asked whether reports that former California Gov. Ronald Reagan is ready to challenge him has had any effect on Rockefeller's possible candidacy. "No," Ford responded, "I don't think there is any connection whatsoever." The tradition has been that a President announces his candidacy for the high office, or other candidates do, and I don't see any relationship at all between what I have done and what Gov. Reagan has done, and what people have done on his behalf, and what the Vice President's effort is." The President said he met in his hotel room Friday night with Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley, longtime Democratic leader who had said earlier other commitments would keep him from greeting the President. Ford described the meeting as "delightful" and said he and Daley discussed problems of American cities. Asked to outline his biggest accomplishments and failings since he assumed the presidency in August, Ford said the No. 1 achievement was "we have restored public confidence in the White House and the executive branch of the government." He also listed as accomplishments reducing the rate of inflation to 6 per cent and the "forceful action in the Mayaguez case." Asked to list any failings, the President drew a laugh when he replied, "I will leave that to my opponents." He then added: "I don't think there have been many." « » · AFTER THE NEWS CONFERENCE, Ford spoke at commencement exercises held in McCormick Place Exhibition Hall by Chicago State University, whose student body invited him to speak. "I was so moved by the more than 5,000 signatures on the petition inviting me that nothing could have kept me away," he said. Noting that many of the graduates held jobs to remain in college, Ford recalled his freshman year at the University of Michigan where, he said. "I worked as a busboy in the nurses' cafeteria at the university hospital. I also waited oa tables in the totems' dining room." He added that "even during the Great Depression, it was much easier for me I was not the victim of a racial prejudice nor of a deprived environment. So 1 cannot honestly say that my experience was the same as that of those who are struggling to make it today... But I do say that my experience leads me to care about and to identify with every upward bound individual in the nation." "And I defy anyone to put down the greatest fraternity of them all -- the college graduates who learned something about life by dirtying their hands." Ford drew frequent applause from the audience of about an equal number of .black and white students. JP Says Del. Walter Rollins, D-Wayne, noting the amendment has resulted in "favors to the state Supreme Court, the circuit courts and the magistrate courts" asked Kanawha County Justice of the Peace Al Shephard "what have we done for the people?" Shephard said eventually he thought the voters would see "a much more equitable court system." He added, "you'll see the negative points eventually eliminated and the courts will reach the stature they should have had" years ago. Retired Surgeon, Dr. Jordan, Dies After Illness Dr. Emory V. Jordan, 76, of 1623 Loudon Heights Road, died Friday at home after an extended illness. He was a retired urologist and surgeon. He was a graduate of the Tennessee mili tary School and Medical College of Virginia. He was a member of the Medical College of Surgeons. Since retiring, Dr. Jordan was volunteering his services in Putnam County to allay the shortage of doctors. He was a 50-year member of the Masonic Lodge, the York Rite Bodies, and the Shriners. He was a member of the Kanawha Country Club. He was a commander in the U.S. Navy during World War II. Suriviving: wife, Mrs. Mathilda Jordan; sister, Mrs. R. H. Walker of Charleston. Service will be 1 p.m. Monday in Bartlett-Burdette Funeral Home with the Rev. J. B. F. Yoak Jr. officiating. Burial will be Sunet Memorial Park, South Charleston. Friends may call from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. today. There will be Masonic graveside rite. Man Takes Stand In Own Defense In Murder Trial HE ALSO predicted that with time "much more qualified" individuals will preside over the courts. Lois Kauffelt, president of the League of Women Voters of West Virginia, urged training and testing for the magistrates. She reminded the committee that "to achieve substantial improvement at this level of justice, where more cases are heard than at any other level of the judiciary, even longtime incumbents must keep abreast of changing laws and court decisionsto maintain a high degree of competence in the performance of their duties." Logan County justice of the peace Andy Sos urged that the magistrate courts be removed from the reach of "political hacks and the rule of committees" and he mentioned specifcally county commissions and judges. He complained he was receiving only SI 00 a month compensation and added it was "hard to function" on that salary. Shepard predicted that after January 1977 magistrates will have more requests for jury trials since their jurisdiction in civil suits will increase from $300 to $1,500. He said the present method of the justice of the peace finding jurors to serve was "very archaic." He recommended circuit clerks supply names of possible jurors to the magistrates. The committee will hold additional hearings Friday in Romney at the courthouse at 2 p.m. and Saturday in Clarksburg at the courthouse at 9 a.m. and in Parkersburg at the courthouse at 2:30 p.m. The final hearing is scheduled in Wheeling Aug. 2 at noon in the courthouse. £, Previous bearings were held in ton, BecUey and Kuntington. MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Lawrence Sette, accused of being an accessory before the fact in the April 1 murder of his wife, took the stand in his own defense Saturday in the final round of questioning in the Monongalia County Circuit Court pro: ceeding. The extraordinary Saturday session was dictated by Preston County Circuit Court Judge Robert Halbritter, who is presiding over the case. Halbritter, who is between sessions in his own court, took the case when Monongab'a County Circuit Court Judge Marvin Kiger disqualified himself. Sette denied that he planned the murder of Elizabeth Sette, 24, and also said he had no knowledge of the .22 caliber rifle identified as the murder weapon. "I never furnished it, never purchased it and had nothing to do with it," he said. Sette, however, did admit that he lied several times to police investigators concerning his involvement with Kathy June West. Included were ommissions of her name from lists of baby sitters and visitors to the Sette's Morgantown home. Miss West, 17, admitted earlier in the trial that she had killed Mrs. Sette through Sette's direction and by following a "master plan" allegedly drawn up by Sette. Sette's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sette of Yonkers, N.Y., said that Sette visited his sick father last February. Miss West told the court that Sette went tn New York to arrange a "hit man" to murder his wife. Sette said that his wife knew of his affair with Miss West and he said he promised her that he would terminate it. When he confronted Miss West, Sette said "she got very emotional... she went off the deep end." Picketing of Two Post Offices Canceled The W. Va. Postal Workers Union has called off picketing of post offices in Huntington arid Clarksburg that was earlier scheduled for Monday. A spokesman for the union said Saturday union representatives are working iprjth postal authorities to try to settle thefllif- ferences.
