Court Grants Defendants Right To Be Represented By Lawyer PAMPA. TEXAS PAMfA 66lh YEAR it I Nt- Tuesday. WASHINGTON <AP) - It* Supreme Court today granted all defendants who face a pot- sible jail term the right to be represented by a lawyer. The 7 to 2 decision delivered by Justice William 0. Douglas, guarantees a lawyer's help to millions of poor people who are prosecuted for petty offenses and misdemeanors. Less than half the states now supply free lawyers to defend- •nts in all trials that could lead to a jail term. The historic ruling, M eipanston of past Sixth Amendment decisions, will necessarily change trial practices in those states. Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, who agreed with Douglas, said he was confident the legal profession would meet the -large new burdens" placed Diary Of PHS Students On Europe Choir Tour Editor's Note: Pour students from Pampa High School are touring Europe with a choir from Irving, Texas.

While in New York, the enfee group found that prices are hnh and the air is very dirty. Montjw Bryan said he "sure would be glad to have some Texas air!"

Departure for Luxembourg was at 7:45 p.m. A brief stop-over at Iceland for refueling was followed by the landing in Luxembourg at 10 a.m. their time. So far, the students reported, it's been a tiring but very enjoyable trip. upon it. Juattrn Lewis F. Powell and William H. Rehnquist, the court's freshman members, objected to the sweep of the decision although they did not dis- tent In a technical sense. They said the court should have ruled there is a right to a lawyer only when "necessary to assure a fair trial." Back in IMS a case known as Gideon v. Wainwright first laid the principle that a man on trial for "serious offenses" has the right to a lawyer and that if he cannot afford one the state must supply counsel. Until then, the Sixth Amendment had been interpreted as necessitating lawyers only in capital offenses—when there was a chance of a death sentence. Subsequently, the court granted the right to a free lawyer when the jail term could be six months or more. fast and Sate Your lawn has a consistent labit.

He's Mr. Lawn Mower Safety in your neighborhood. 0. II. of Rockford, III., writes: Is there any rule against loud radio playing In a plant? Dear G. II.: There are no restrictions under relevant federal law, the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, on radio playing. However, standards on occupational noise exposure limit sound levels to 90 decibels when exposure is continuous over an eight-hour day. This standard might apply to a very loud radio. * * * B. K., St. Louis, Mo., asks: If a firm deliberately violates the equal pay law, what can employes do about it? Dear B. K.: fortunately, the Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division is able to persuade most employers to comply with the law by educating them about its requirements. However, lawsuits are filed where necessary. The secretary of Labor may obtain an injunction against the employer to restrain further violation and require back wages to be paid, or he may bring suit for payment of back wages upon written request of the underpaid employe. Further, employes may file their own suits for unpaid wages, an additional but equal amount as damage, plus lawyer's fees and court costs if the employe has not been paid back wages under the secretary's supervision, and the secretary has not already filed suit for the back wages. Since the Equal Pay Act went into effect in 1964, nearly 250 court cases have been filed and back wages totaling more than $10 million have been recovered through litigation and out of court settlements. Most of the affected employes also have received pay increases as a result. t * t L. L., of Petaluma, Calif., writes: I employ 15 Spanish- speaking persons. Is there available an approved Span ish version of a poster on employe rights that will satisfy posting requirements? Dear L. L. Yes. Copies of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration poster in Spanish may be obtained from Regional Offices of the Bureau of Labor Statistics in San Francisco, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Al- lanta, Chicago, Dallas and Kansas City, Mo. * * * P. T. of Cleveland, Ohio, writes: I am a federal em- ploye and belong to a union. How can I see the financial records of my union? Dear P. T.: The union is required under Executive Order 11491, as amended, to file an annual financial report with the Labor Department. These are available to the public in 24 area offices and in Washington. See your phone book for complete address. Price Asks Amtrak To Extend Service To Northwest Texas WASHINGTON, D.C. -In a personal telephone conversation with Roger Lewis, president of Amtrak, the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, Congressman Bob Price, requested consideration for an extension of Amtrak service through the Northwest Texas area as part of a new East-West line to be added between Chicago and Los Angeles. The Congressman made the request as part of a continuing effort to bring improved rail service to the Panhandle of Texas. "I am convinced that the economic growth of our area is directly dependent upon a diversified and well organized transportation network, and the inclusion of rail passenger service would be of considerable benefit in opening new opportunities to Northwest Texas communities and businesses," Price said. Four of the nation's largest airlines have their corporate headquarters in New York City.
