10 Galesburg Register-Mail, Galesburg, III, Tuesday, June 25, 1963 Says Supreme Court Should Make Decision MONMOUTH. III. (AP) - A former Illinois judge blamed the U.S. Supreme Court today for excessive delays in carrying out death sentences. Wiilin.n M. Bardens commented on the still pending case of Lloyd Eldon Miller, a Canton, 111., cab driver, whom Bardens sentenced to death 6M> years ago for the rape murder of an 8-year- o'd girl in 1955. Post-trial litigation in some death .sentence cases has dragged 8 or 9 years in absence of high court action on appeal merits, he said. Bardens, who was Circuit Court trial judge in the Miller case, noted thai the Supreme Court refused hearings on the merits of Miller's appeals four times. "Had the U.S. Supreme Court decided in 1958 that Miller had a fair trial, no other court thereafter would have felt need for a stay of execution," Bardens said. "But so long as the highest court had not spoken on the confession's receipt into evidence (the appeal issue) any lower court would bend backwards to allow Miller to endeavor to get a decision on that point." Bardens expressed his views in a signed article written for the Monmouth Review Atlas after the latest phase ol the Miller case, a ruling affirming the sanity of Miller, was returned last week by a Circuit Court jury at Carthage, 111., before Judge Keith F. Scott. Miller, by terms of an Illinois Supreme Court stay ot sentence faces execution July 26. His attorney, however, has said that a new trial on the issue of Miller's sanity will be sought, and that Gov. Otto Kerner will be asked for commutation of sentence. "Why a death sentence is not of sufficient importance to gain the consideration and opinion on merits of the U.S. Supreme Court I fcannot answer," Bardens said. "It is a busy court, as everyone knows, but it does consider civil cases for many damages and misdemeanor cases which it considers important." MONMOUTH MM Rortmat?

Marriage License MONMOUTH — A marriage license was issued Monday to James Lee Vollbracht and Joyce A. Taylor, of Monmouth. The rare okapi is a strange creature with a giraffe head, donkey ears, horselike neck, elklike body and zebra legs. House Okays Bonds for Hospital SPRINGFIELD — Monmouth Hospital's plans for improvements—or even a new structure- were given a boost by the House late Monday. A bill that would allow a municipality to issue revenue bonds for reconstruction and improvements for a municipal hospital was passed unanimously. The bill, which had been passed earlier by the Senate, now goes to the governor. Rep. R. E. Anderson (R-Gnles- burg) said the bill will allow Monmouth Municipal Hospital to take advantage of existing federal funds. The measure states that the revenue bonds would be payable in 40 years, whereas other municipal bonds are usually payable in 20 years. The bill technically applies to all municipalities of 100,- OU0 or less. Plans for improvement, addi- Monmouth Hospital Listings MONMOUTH — Dismissed Sunday, Carl Stodgel', Warrensb'urg.

Letters of administration were issued to Marion Beal with will t annexed. tions or reconstruction at the Monmouth Hospital have been indefinite and hanging six months, pending approval of this bill. Check Writer Will Face Lie Detector MONMOUTH - Carl Stodgel!, 28, of Warrensburg, who has been held in Warren County jail since Friday, appeared in county court Monday. On April 10, Stodgell is alleged to have given a fraudulent check in the amount of $10 to Mac's Trafler Sales, and Willard McMaster of the firm signed a complaint for his arrest. Stodgell was picked up Friday in Peoria by local authorities and returned here. Yesterday he claimed, in court, he was not aware his account in a Decatur bank was closed out at the time he gave the check. However, it was found the account was closed Feb. 13. If Stodgell should now pass a lie detector test charges will probably be dropped. Charles Bundy, 23, of Kirkwood, who was arrested June 10 for assault and who has been serving a 6-month sentence in the county jail, was also due in court. He had appeared Thursday and pleaded not guilty to a charge of criminal damage to public property, after some trouble in the jar], and asked for a change of venue. Bundy was to have appeared in court Monday. However, Keith Sanderson of Oquawka appeared, representing Bundy, and asked for a continuance. Judge Scott I. Klukos granted the continuance until this morning. John Miller, 17, formerly of Berwick, who has been living lately in Macomb, was in court Monday on a charge of violation of probation. Miller was arrested sometime ago for the theft of a chain hoist from the Walter Eaton home in Berwick and placed on probation in Warren County Court. On May 10, Miller was arrested for drinking in Macomb and it was found he had used some credentials belonging to a Western Illinois University student who lived in the same house as Miller. The deception was discovered when the youth called to see why his name appeared in the paper. Last week Miller was returned to Monmouth to answer the charge of parole violation. Yesterday, while in court, it was discussed whether he should serve a term in Vandalia or return to high school and finish. In the meantime, Miller is in county jail.
