Wednesday Details of the plan were an-flounced at a news conference by Dan Matkin mayor of Irving and a past president of (JOG and Jerry Clay director of science and technology in the Criminal Justice Division of the Office of the Gov he wanted to take a polygraph test on it" "Ile knew something about it had read it in the paper Ile said he knew quite a bit about it" Hudson testified The detective said the polygraph examination was administered by D E Wheeler of the police department who told him afterward that "Mr Kneeland was lying" Wheeler also took the stand Tuesday and told the judge about the test He said after the test was administered he talked with Kneeland and "I told him that I could not pass him on the Carla Walker killing" Hudson told the court that Kneeland was placed in a lineup with five other people — a police trainee and four det ectives—which was viewed by Rodney McCoy "the boyfriend of Carla Walker" on another matter the board was expected to accept —but didn't—the Air Trans people mover system from LTV Aerospace The meeting's agenda called for a closed meeting session at which the board was expected to at least par tially accept the system but that agenda item was passed over Air Trans program manager Austin Corbin said his firm had "nrt all our criteria" But he said the airlines at D-F1V also must approve the Air Trans acceptance and this apparently had not been done by meeting time Morning November 6 1974 ernor Clay's office awarded the grant The money will be matched by 25 per cent in local funning for a total V55 million program including a V4 million contract with General Electric for radios McCoy he said identified Kneeland as the man who abducted Miss Walker whose body later was found in a culvert near Benbrook Lake

run through next week Gholson and handy allegedly were hitchhiking south from their homes near Oklahoma City two years ago when they were picked up by a truck driver Their partly decomposed bodies were discovered July I in a remote spot near Southwest Airport Kneeland was arrested earlier this year after Miss Danita Ann Cash told officers he had abducted and attacked her Hudson and Det Jerry Blaisdell said they were among about a dozen police officers who arrived at Knee-lands home in Euless about 6:30 am on May 6 to take Kneeland into custody and search his house Since his arrest Kneeland has given statements to police here and in Winkler County about the deaths of Gholson and handy and about the I97C killing of a Kermit woman Mrs Nancy Mitchell It is these statements which the defendant's attorney Harry Williams is trying to have ruled inadmissible Irving teen-ager arrested in abduction of boy 5 IRVING (AP) — held a teen-ager Tuesday in the abduction of a 5-year-old boy who was kidnaped while More police asked to quell teen damage ARLINGTON — An Arlington merchant wil) said the windows of his business have been smashed by teen-agers who congregate nightly on a shopping center parking lot asked City Council members Tuesday night to increase police supervision of the gathering place T h e businessman who asked not to be identified said merchants in the shopping center each morning must pick up "about 20 gallons of broken glass" from activity of the night before "Recently we've been having beer bottles thrown through plate glass windows" he added The parking lot at Cooper and Benge Street is a longtime gathering place for teen-agers Last spring a streaking incident at the shopping center evolved into a near riot which required virtually the entire Arlington police department and police reserves from several surrounding cities to control However Police Chief Herman Perry said the police also have been criticized by parents for interfering too much with activities of the teen-agers City councilmen took the request for added police supervision under advisement and said they would look into the situation further before making a decision During Tucsday night's session the council also tabled a request to rezone 429 acres west of FM 157 and south of the Trinity River for a single-family home and apartment development Edward Green developer of the tract told the council during his zoning request the development will include a greenbelt of park space along the edge of the Trinity River Clay said the grant was the "largest single action grant our agency has ever made and the largest equipment-purchase grant in the state for this type of equipment" He said the imit price under the contract provides the "best price for comparable equipment by anyone anywhere in the United States" Matkins said as an example for an expenditure of $35000 Irving can get equip ment that would cost it $111000 if it did it on its own The money will allow communities to update older equipment and to provide better communications between agencies The new system will pro vide for eight radio frequencites in a high band range for better clearer communications without the "blank spots" that sometimes occur when a vehicle goes over a hill Clay said Tarrant County is not a part of the program but has equipment that will be compatible with agencies getting the new GE equipment Fort Worth will take bids on equipment at a later date and then determine on the basis of those bids whether it wants to participate in the program with COG Matkin said agencies could decide to join the system at any time during the life of the one-year program and get the same unit price for the equipment If enough law enforcement agencies join later Clay said the state funding could be increased The program is made up of 25 per cent local funding 375 per cent state funding and 375 per cent from the Federal Law Enforcement Assistance Administration Mail for France held by embargo A strike by French postal workers which began Oct 29 has caused an embargo on all mail to France and Postmaster Jack D Watson said there was no indication when it would be lifted Watson said all surface mail already deposited with the post office here would be held for the time being Air mail Watson said would be returned to the sender
