Cerebral Palsy Victim Battles for Highway (C) \w York Times Stfrriee AUSTIN, Tex. -- Four large trucking concerns and a bus company are trying to nin a 28-year old cerebral palsy victim and his small pickup truck off the road. Howard Boyd of San Angelo has applied to the Texas Railroad Commission for a permit to operate his truck commercially to bring raw materials to other handicapped persons so that they may work at home. After the material is assembled, Boyd" plans to come by in his three- quarter-ton pickup and return the finished products to a rehabilitation center where they can be sold. However, there is not enough of that kind of business to pay the overhead expenses required by the railroad commission to merit a license. Boyd asked the railroad commission for authority to transport auto parts as he drove around West Texas calling on his clients. PROTESTS WERE LODGED against the application by 0. and A. Express Inc. of Lubbock, Merchants Fast Motor Lines Inc. of Abilene, Morgan Express Inc. of Dallas.Curry Motor Freight of Amarillo and the Curville Bus Co. of Curville. The five oppose Boyd's plan to haul auto parts, and 0. and A. and Morgan are not happy about any part of his application because they also make home deliveries. An attempt was made to reach a compromise and let Boyd call only on the handicapped. ·"if he wasn't handicapped, he would never submit to a compromise. We'd stay and fight it out," said Austin Hatchell of Austin, a lawyer for 0. and A. and Morgan. But Boyd says he must have the additional work in order to call on his handicapped clients. He feels that any reductions in the requested authority would prevent his trucking operation from growing and would kill his chance to be a success. W.P. Danforth, the hearing examiner, took the application and the protest under advisement and will make a recommendation later to the three: member railroad commission for a final decision. Rite Tuesday for City Man Killed in Crash Sen-ice will be Tuesday for a 30-year-old Charleston man who was kilkd Saturday morning when the car he was driving went off U5.21 at Tuppers Creek, smashed into a tree, then burned. Killed was Hershel Lyone "Bo" Kelley Jr. of Charleston Rt. 4. Deputies who were passing near the wreck were flagged to a stop by Kelley's wife, Carol, who had been following her husband in another car with the couple's son, Dwayne. Deputies said Mrs. Kelley was taken to General Division of Charleston Area Medical Center where she was treated for shock. Using a fire extinguisher and borrowed garden hose, deputies attempted to put out the fire in Kelley's car, but were unsuccessful. The accident occurred about 4 a'.m.

Man Charged In Murder Of Girl, 13 WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Sheila Ferrell, the 13-year-old black girl who was shot two weeks ago allegedly while trying to steal peaches from a backyard tree, died Saturday and her alleged assailant was charged with first degree murder. John H. Bailey, 24, who is white, was arraigned in Wilmington Municipal Court and sent without bail to the Delaware Correctional Center near Smyrna under heavy guard and wearing a bulletproof vest. The maximum penalty for first-degree murder in Delaware is death by hanging. According to police, Miss Ferrell was shot in the back Aug. 17 as she fled from the rear of Bailey's Wilmington house with peaches she had taken from a tree. The shooting triggered five days of racial unrest last week that culminated in scattered violence and vandalism. Blacks were outraged at Bailey's release on $30.000 bond on charges of assault with intent to murder and use of a firearm during a felony. DR. EARL P. FISHER Announces the Association Of DR.

Tuesday-Saturday Tuesday and Thursday Evenings Hours By Apointment 115 Quarrier St. 346-6511 By Kay Michael "We are not inviting America to defend Israel," said Allon, "nor to get involved in any possible conflict, nor to endanger a single American life... - "It's a great contribution toward peace. I think America, which played such a tre- .mendous role in bringing about such an ·agreement, can be proud of the fact that '-this is really the first time in recent years ;that two rival sides asked for American ·service to both of them." · Earlier, in Alexandria, Tahseen Bashir, the Egyptian government spokesman, told newsmen: "We would like to have Congress pass American technicians to help '.bring a step of stabilization." · Briefing newsmen while President An"war Sadat met again with Kissinger, Bashir added "my own feeling is that Congress wants the United States to play an Active role in bringing stepped up peace to . this area." ~ Bashir also said Egypt and Israel are still at odds over the precise lines their forces will take up. He described them as '."technical aspects of where the forces .·are, how they move, where the U . N . forces go ... defining on the ground how '.things will be" when Isarel pulls back the -12 to 30 miles from the Suez Canal. ",,· Kissinger, after conferring with Sadat ior about 20 minutes and then at length -with Egyptian Foreign Minister Ismail CFahmy, shuttled back here for a late night /·session with the Israeli negotiating team. '". While the Israeli cabinet meets today, ..he plans to return to Alexandria a sixth . -time to resume discussions about provisions for Israeli and Egyptian limited forces zones on opposite sides of a U.N. peacekeeping force. Newsmen, were told the military "an- .nexes" were taken up with the Israelis for Uhe first time on Friday and with the '.Egyptians Saturday and would eventually · be made public. Partly because of the removal of several women from the board of education building Friday, the Rev.' Avis Hill said Saturday he's confident striking coal miners will involve themselves in the "abortion and textbook protest." Mr. Hill, a protest leader, said he expects miners' help "once the right-to- strike issue is over." He said he believed miners would join because the woman who fell as police cleared the board building was a miner's wife. The woman, Lorraine Atkinson, was taken to the General Division of the Charleston Area Medical Center after she fell. She was treated and released. Mrs. Atkinson was one of 18 women who staged a round-the-clock sit- in at the board building. The demonstration was halted by police late Friday as they enforced an eviction order signed by Kana- wha Circuit Court Judge Oden Goshorn. t * * WOMEN WERE PROTESTING Kanawha County textbooks and had vowed not to leave the building until administrators agreed to a list of demands including a refund of their tax money and the resignation of key school officials. They said they wanted their tax money to pay the costs involved in sending their children to Christian schools. Resignations were demanded of Superintendent John Santrock and school board members Russell Isaacs, Matthew Kinsolving, Harry Stansbury and F. Douglas Stump. ' Mr. Hill said textbook protesters will set up food and clothing collection and distribution centers for striking miners. He said the collection center will be at the Freedom Gospel Mission in St. Albans. Food will be distributed at Coal Fork on Campbells Creek, located near the Coal Fork Methodist Church. He said clothing will be distributed from the United Mine Workers' local union headquarters on Campbells Creek. . He said the biggest oil companies are likely to take over the most profitable, high-volume stations now carrying their brand names and sell through economical gas-only and self-serve operations. By doing this, he said, they can absorb a profit margin totaling about 12 cents a gallon, which presently goes to jobbers and station dealers. "We've got to be vary cautious in regulating these changes to make sure we aren't pumping our own gasoline, waiting in line and paying the same or higher margins to the oil companies," Patterson said. Federal energy officials report that the number of stations operated directly by the refiners has remained relatively constant since 1972 at about 13,000 with the rest run mostly be dealers who lease brand-name stations' from the big companies. But experts point out that company takeovers of such stations are impeded by federal allocation rules which were designated to lock in the market at its 1972 status. Allocation regulations expire Sunday night along with price controls, although President Ford and Congress are working on a compromise to extend the controls. Despite federal regulations, some com- jauuuancia on ^muyuciia ^itcn. - 1 ·--.- - -= . · .

From Page One Help Eyed The senate leader said he is most concerned, however, about the plight of people on fixed incomes who chronically face rising utility costs. ;' Other forms of state assistance are ·available to people in need, he said, in the .'form of welfare and food stamps So far, \nothing has been done to help a pensioner 'faced with a $200 utility bill. ' He said he believes utility stamp legisla- ; tion could bridge that gap. Union officials emphasized that although they were sympathetic with striking miners in their protest over grievances, injunctions, and the right to strike, their orders calling on miners to return to work were necessary by law. "There is a lot of misunderstaind about the problems of court injunctions in coal mine disputes/' said Patrick. "The 1974 contract did not give coal companies the right to go to court and obtain injunctions, and neither did the 1972 contract. It was the Supreme Court of the United States in 1970 which ruled that coal companies can seek injunctions in labor disputes. "I don't like this law," Patrick added. "I believe that disputes should and must be settled at the mine site between union and management. The use of courts by the operators only makes the situation worse. "But the law is the law, and we can't change it by striking. We can try to change it by action through Congress or through the courts, but prolonging this strike won't change the law. It will only bring more injunctions and weaken our union." In addition to Logan County local presidents, representatives of locals in Mingo and Boone counties also atttended the meeting Saturday. UMW President Arnold Miller did not attend. Most miners do not work over the Labor Day weekend, so it won't be until Tuesday that it will be known whether miners will heed the union's latest plea to return to work. 8,000 Expected For Celebration In Boone Today DM* From NATIONAL WEATHER SEHVICt.
