Sailed promoter has political ambitions} ALL EDITIONS . c Phoenix, Sat., June 30, 1973 The Arizona Republic A*13 Associated Press FRANKFURT, Germany From his Frankfurt jail cell, Glenn W. Turner has been laying new "dare -to-be great" plans. The American promoter hopes to secure himself a say in the running of what he regards to be his chief competitor — the U. S. government. "I'm going to be someone in the federal government one day. And when I am, I'm going to reform the American prison system," Turner said in an interview Friday at the Preungesheim confinement facility where he was being held for possible extradition to England to face allegations of fraud. Turner, 38, rested his elbows on a thick book entitled "100 Great Modern Lives." He was m o d i s h 1 y dressed with a blazing red shirt, black pants with red pinstripe and matching vest. "Half the people in this book have gone to jail," he said, patting the tome. 1 "These walls, they're not confining," Turner said. "The only thing that can stop you is yourself." Turner said the American government has helped to put him in jail. "America fought for free enterprise. Now the government is trying to tell the people when to go to the bathroom." Next September, he faces trial in a U.S. federal court at Orlando, Fla., on mail fraud charges in connection with his "Dare-to-be-Great" motivation courses and the marketing operations of two other companies. Turner has been involved in running legal battles in various states that have challenged his pyramid system of selling marketing franchises. He has claimed to have amassed a personal fortune of some $300 million. Cornerstones of his pyramid have been Koscot, a Florida-based cosmetics firm, and his "Dare-to-be-G r e a t" motivation courses. Turner was arrested by West German authorities at Frankfurt airport June 16 on an Interpol warrant issued at request of British authorities, who w e r e investigating a sales scheme connected with his name. On Thursday, the British Home Office decided not to seek his, extradition. At the same time, a federal judge in Orlando issued a bench warrant for turner at request of his lawyers. His loneliest time in jail, he said, eame between 4 and 10 p.m. when he was forced to retire to his cell. This had led him to consider a prison re- form scheme that would permit prisoners more time out of cells and television and other entertainment during night hours. American stars and stripes.
