Awaits Dcotft Thrvc Ywrt Negro Youth Granted Four Delays ~fty JACK StlLLMAN ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) — For almost three years, Preston Cobw Jr. has awaited death. "Hie Negro, now 18, has seen the date of his e*ecution wiped out four times. Cobb was sentenced to death when he was 15 for the slaying of Frank C. Dumas ST., 70, a white farmer on whose property Cobb's mother and most of her nine .children lived. Cobb admitted the slaying during his trial but later repudiated, his confession. His death sentence brought to light that Georgia has no law protecting a juvenile from the death penalty. At his trial Cobb toM a white jury that he shot Dumas to death after an argument over a fish he had caught in Dumas' pond. "\ was mad with him because he kept telling me about that little old fish I caught, and he told me he was going to blow my brains out," Cot* testified. The jury deliberated 45 minutes. Until his conviction, few had heard of the Negro boy. The sentence brought him into the limelight. The late Eleanor Roosevelt i asked former Gov. Ernest Vandiver of Georgia to intervene in Cobb's behalf. A Malayan attor- j ney made a similar request of i the late President John F. Ken nedy. Scores of letters were received by Vandiver and by! Georgia's present governor, Carl E. Sanders, urging that they stay the boy's execution. Georgia governors, however, have no clemency powers; only the Pardon and Parole Board can commute a death sentence. Cebb tint vm sentenced to MEN AMERICA SCOUmWEEK «=*OY SCOUTS Of?

After Cobb's conviction, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People hired an Atlanta Negro attorney to take over the case from the court-appointed white lawyer, J. Ben Warren. Warren, who lives in Monticello, Ga., refused to appeal Cobb's conviction. The Negro attorney, Donald L. Hollow-ell, described what he called the systematic exclusion of Negroes from juries in Jasper County, and filed an appeal. He also said that Cobb had admitted the slaying under duress. Cobb meanwhile remains in death row in Reidsvillc State Prison. Sometimes he reads, sometimes he does push-ups and other exercises in the small cell.

The Food and Dnig Administration has approved irradiated bacon and is expected to approve, within the next month, irradiated potatoes for which an application is pending. Applications are pending, too, for irradiated oranges and lemons. Irradiation to preserve food is done by gamma rays or electron beams. It's the kind that doesn't stay on to leave any lingering radio-activity—it kills decaying agents and moves on. FDA approval means that the irradiated food items are stamped safe for human consumption. Researchers have talked of these advantages, among olh- MARMADUKE "Now if we could just train him not to eat them on the way in!" A farmer could virtually eliminate spoilage by giving his fruit a dose of radiation as soon as it is harvested. A housewife could buy a ham, chicken or turkey and keep it on the pantry shelf for months. Commercial fishermen could triple the shelf life of certain fish ami other seafoods by giving them a dose of radiation and storing them at one degree above freezing. The American soldier anywhere in the world could get food that tastes like the fresh item back home. V\ The Army has done extensive research at its Natick, Mass., Fond Preservation Library to find good field rations for its men. Will radiation processing replace established methods such as canning and freezing? No, says Anthony A. Hertasch, head of the government's interdepartmental committee on radiation preservation of food. ."It's tike everything else in an expanding economy and a growing population—it's not going to displace anything," Bertasch said in an interview.
