Strop Us* to Be Ruled on by Court ST, LOUIS (AP) ~ The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments here Friday on whether the use of a leather strap to discipline prisoners constitutes cruel and unusual punishment, Attorneys Edward L. Wright of Little Rock and Williams S. Arnold of Crossett raised the question in an appeal filed on behalf of three Arkansas penitentiary Inmates, The Inmates are William King Jackson, Lyle Edward Ernst Jr, and Grady W, Mask. Wright and Arnold filed their notice of appeal last June after U.S. District Judges Gordon Young and Oren Harris held that the strap was not forbidden by the constitution if accompanied by adequate safeguards to prevent "caprlcous administration." The appeals court will be deciding a moot question as far as Arkansas' prisons are concerned, because the state's new Board of Correction adopted a rule Feb. 29 prohibiting use of the strap. Wright and Arnold, who are serving without pay on appoint- ment by Young and Harris, are proceeding with their appeal In an effort to prevent the possi* billty that the strap might be reinstated some time in the future, King Plans to Ignore Injunction MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, and other civil rights leaders say they will ignore an injunction prohibiting another mass march here next Monday if the injunction is allowed to stand. Federal officials say the restraining order will be enforced by federal troops if necessary, A hearing was scheduled today before U.S. District Judge Bailey Brown, who issued the injunction Wednesday after city officials said they feared a recurrence of the rioting following a march led by King a week ago. King told a cheering audience of some 2,000 persons Wednesday night, "We're going to march again; we've got to march again in order to put the Issue where it's supposed to be." Raisins are a nourishing food. Thursday, ApriM. Convicted Slayer Is Paroled LITTLE ROCK (AP)-Hames Perry Williams, a convicted 1 murderer whose life sentence was reduced to 50 years by Gov.
