OSCEOLA (Continued from Page One) $5,555.55 Sets Wortham Free MOSCOW (AP) - A Soviet appeal court today fined American Buel Ray Wortham 55,555.55 on two criminal charges and released him from a three-year labor camp sentence. He had been convicted of engaging in illegal currency operations and stealing a statue from a hotel room. The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation confirmed its earlier sentence that the 25-year-old North Little Rock, Ark., youth was guilty of theft and black market currency deals in Leningrad. But it accepted his plea not to send him back to confinement, where he spent more than three months, before being released on bail. The court rejected a request to overrule part of the sentence confiscating his car and other valuables. Wortham heard the verdict with an almost impassive face, smiling faintly as the proceedings ended. He had appeared nervous during the five-hour appeal. Wortham said later, "I'm grateful to all the people who have helped me throughout this, especially Mayor (William) Laman and the people of North Little Rock." Laman had written to the court appealing for clemency and promising that the citizens of Wortham's home town would pay any fine which might be- levied in place of sending him to a labor camp. * * * Wortham, who has been living at the American Embassy since his release on bail Jan. 14, also expressed gratitude to U.S. diplomats, especially consular officer Harlan Moen. Moen stood by his side during tha hearing today. Asked when he now planned to go home, Wortham said, "I'll be leaving as soon as we get the technical matters taken care of." He hoped to be back in North Little Rock by next weekend, Wortham said. Earlier today, Soviet Prosecu- Sor Ivan F. Novokshonov had recommended that Wortham be fined instead of serving the sentence. He was sentenced in December for stealing the statue of a bear from his Leningrad hotel and illegal currency transaction totaling about $75. The court deliberated 105 minutes before bringing in a lengthy written decision that summarized the case. The review mentioned that a traveling companion of Wortham, Craddock M. Gilmour Jr., 24, Salt Lake City, Utah, had also been convicted in Leningrad last December of one illegal currency deal and was fined $1,111.11. Gilmour returned to the United States shortly after the trial. He did not appeal. OBITUARY Crash Kills Officer Lt. Cmdr. Jolin F. Kcnnerly, 30, husband of the former Patti Dean Wright, daughter of Harold Wright of Blylheville and Mrs. Floyd Lowery of Memphis, died in an airplane crash 20 miles southwest of Fallen, Nev. March 3.

The decision read by Miss She was born in Ripley, Tenn Faina Mamazora, one of the snd had been a resident o£ Eh/ two deputies to the court chairman, noted that Wortham had both during the trial and in an appeal statement today expressed regret for his actions. Wortham's guilt is completely proven, the decision said. But the court "finds it possible to grant the request" for a lighter sentence, Miss Mamazora read. The Soviet prosecutor had asked tSiat Wortham be only fined the $5,555.55 and not imprisoned. Wortham estimated that the total cost of his actions during his stay in the Soviet Union would come to more than $10,000. In addition to the fine, Wortham's car cost him about $2,100, legal costs came to about $1, 500 dollars and there were other expenses. The crewcut, rawboned youth seemed too worried about the money to have much time for joy that he was not being carted off to a labor camp. theville since 1901.
