No Action Scheduled Personalities in Nation's News On Accident PEARL BAILEY SEN. MONDALE VICE ADM. MACK By United Press International LONDON (UPI) - Actor James Stewart fingered a tattered blue necktie Wednesday night and then went on stage in a role he could probably play in his sleep. Stewart, the veteran Hollywood star, made his first London stage appearance as El wood P. Dowd in "Harvey," the play about an invisible six-foot rabbit. Stewart and Dowd are old friends. The actor first played the inebriated dreamer on Broadway in 1947. He starred in the movie three years later, and has revived the stage part four other times since. Stewart made a brief speech after the final curtain, saying it had always been his dream to play on the London stage. Then he went back to a dressing room adorned with a rather unusual floral tribute, carried in through the stage door just before the performance. It was two-feet tall, made of white chrysanthemums, and shaped like a rabbit. WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen^ Walter Mondale, D-Minn., says Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. should be the first black American to have his portrait or statue placed in the U.S. Capitol. Mondale introduced a bill Wednesday to commission a statue or bust of the late civil rights leader for such a display. Mondale said the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968 and the 1965 Voting Rights Act are "living monuments" to King but are not enough. "Not a single black American has been honored by having a portrait or statue placed in the Capitol," said Mondale. "This is supposed to be a building that symbolizes a government of all the people. WASHINGTON (UPI) -Pearl Bailey stayed on stage after her two hour show at the Kennedy Center to celebrate First Lady Betty Ford's 57th birthday. Miss Bailey told the Tuesday night audience Mrs. Ford and her daughter Susan were in the theatre, then brought out a football and sang: "Men of Michigan, on to victory. Everyman and every play, Michigan expects her varsity to win today. Mrs. Ford stood and clapped, as the audience roared on hearing the song from her husband's alma mater. Miss Bailey then led the crowd in singing "Happy Birthday." The First Lady stood again to clap and blew a kiss to Miss Bailey. ANNAPOLIS, Md. (UPI) Vice Adm. William Mack will step down this summer from his post as superintendent of the United States Naval Academy. Mack, 59, has served as superintendent since June, 1972. He will retire effective Aug. 1, the academy announced Wednesday. Mack did not give a reason for his retirement nor did he disclose his plans. No successor has been named. SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Police say no action is planned in an accident in which a 10-year- old bicyclist was hit by a car driven by Police Chief Dewey J. Flllis. Officers said the chief was driving east on 6th South Wednesday evening when his car struck Mike Valdez at the 4th South intersection. Investigating officers said Fillis' view of the boy on the bike was obscured by a car which suddenly drove through the intersection from a stop sign. Valdez was treated at Holy Cross Hospital for minor injuries and released. Porno Movie Queen Story Brings Call for Utah Chronicle Control SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) University of Utah officials have begun a drive to bring the school's student newspaper under tighter controls following the publication of an interview with a pornographic movie queen. University President David P. Gardner said Wednesday he has "launched a move to clarify the legal uncertainties and ambiguities" surrounding the publication of the Daily Utah Chronicle. Gardner said he wanted to know who had the ultimate responsibility for financing the paper, hiring and firing the editor and ensuring "good taste, propriety and responsible journalism." The Chronicle's news editor, Neil Robinson, immediately accused Gardner of wanting to censor the publication as a result of an explicit interview with Georgina Spelvin — star of such adults-only movies as "The Devil in Miss Jones" and "Wet Rainbow." Dr. Arvo Van Alstyne, Gardner's executive assistant, denied the administration was interested in censorship. But he did say Gardner wanted to make sure the newspaper acted responsibly as long as it was being funded with student money. "We've gotten reams of letters from very prominent supporters of the university - some from large contributors — complaining about the article," Van Alstyne said. "President Gardner is committed to free speech," he added. "But we clearly recognize that the only way a student newspaper can be completely independent, is to be financially independent." Van Alstyne said the Chronicle receives approximately 40 per cent of its funding from student body fees. He also said Gardner ordered him last fall to conduct a study of who was legally responsible for the Chronicle — a study which concluded that at least three separate campus organizations claimed to be the paper's official publisher. Robinson, however, said Gardner "basically wants to acquire more authority over what the Chrony does.'' "He was very unhappy with the article on the porno queen and he thought it was pretty poor judgement on our part to run it," the editor said. Van Alstyne said the admin- stration was unaware of any organized pressure from Mormon groups "although in the past the Latter-day Saint Student Association has been quite upset with student fees going to support the paper." Benefit Fund Slated for Medical Costs BLANDING, Utah (UPI) - A fund to help an Ifc-year-old mother pay for plastic surgery to repair her face, which was crushed in a fall, has been set up by San Juan County residents. March 20, Jerri Whipple and her husband Howard were climbing the north wall of Cottonwood Canyon when a ledge gave way and she fell 60 feet, landing on her face. Doctors had to wire her teeth to her jaw and do extensive rebuilding of the face and eye. The bill has gone over $25,000 already and officials say it could double. Mr. Whipple is unemployed and carried no insurance. The couple has a two-month-old son. Tlie woman is being treated in Albuquereque. The fund has been set up at the First Security Bank in Blanding and donations are requested. No Marina Slated on Bear Lake ST. CHARLES, Idaho (UPI) -The Bear Lake Regional Commission has given a Utah group permission to resume cleaning up the beach on a stretch of Bear Lake with the understanding no marina is planned. A complaint had been made through the planning and zoning commission that some group was building some kind of marina on the lake. Upon investigation it was discovered that the Firemen's Relief Association had a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers to clean the beach, remove bullrushes and replace it with sand. Hugh T. Steel of Salt Lake City, representing the Firemen's Relief Association, appeared before the Bear Lake Regional Commission to explain the work the group was doing on the shores of Bear Lake below St. Charles. Steel said he would go ahead and finish the project as his permit allowed. Three Charged With Murder In Brutal Killing of Price Man PRICE, Utah (UPI) - Three men were charged with first degree murder Wnednesday in the slaying of a Price man who was yanked from his bed before dawn, shot at least seven times and dumped in a remote canyon. Gypsy Allen Codianna, 25, Waterbury, Conn., Irvin P. Dunsdon, 32, of Bingham Canyon and Price, Utah, and Craig Marvel, 27, of Laguna Beach, Calif., were held in Carbon County Jail today without bail. They were arrested early Wednesday in a blood - spattered truck on U.S. 5<W west of Price after authorities were notified of the shooting of Michael Thomas Hogan, 26, by his roommate. After County Attorney Ronald B. Boutwell filed the charges, the three men appeared before City Judge A. John Ruggeri for arraignment. He denied them bail, but delayed the entering of pleas until today so the suspects could obtain attorneys. Carbon County Sheriff Albert Passic said the killing was apparently an execution in revenge for testimony Hogan One Nice Thing About Weather, The Water SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Somebody has something good to say about March's weather in Utah — the people who worry about summer water supplies. Three federal agencies report the storms which kept residents shivering into early spring dumped above normal precipitation over most areas of the state, improving snow cover as much as 41 per cent. Precipitation ranged from 497 per cent of average for the month at Jensen in the northeastern comer of Utah to 66 per cent at Orderville in the southwestern comer. Seasonal totals for the October through March water year increased 10 to 20 per cent during the month, but continued to be erratic. The Sevier and Price River Basins are below average, while the remainder of the state ranges from near normal to much above normal. Snow cover ranges from 79 per cent on Ashley-Brush Creeks to 155 per cent of the 1958-72 average on the Ogden River, with heavy accumulations at low levels. The report, by the Soil Conservation Service, National Weather Service and Geological Survey, said reservoir storage continues well above average with water being released through some dams to make space for spring runoff. Utah's 16 reservoirs outside the Colorado River Storage Project held 2,810,710 acre-feet of usable water at the end of March, 124 per cent of average. Contents of the Colorado River project increased 81,100 acre - feet to 21,663,770 - 69 per cent of capacity. gave a year ago against the leader of a Salt Lake City motorcycle gang. The sheriff said three men went to Hogan's Price apartment about 1 a.m. Wednesday and yanked him out of bed. He said they took him outside the building and shot,., him three times. Then, Passic said, the killers "threw his body in the back of a truck, took him up the canyon and finished him off." The roommate, who had been told by the killers to "mind his own business," reported the shooting. The Utah Highway Patrol stopped a pickup truck carrying the suspects as it drove back toward town from Price Canyon about an hour later. A 22-caliber rifle was recovered from the truck, which had blood stains in the back. Hogan's body was found in Crandall Canyon, a spur off Price Canyon. Passic said several spent shell casings were found near the body — which had been shot seven times. The sheriff said Hogan was originally from Salt Lake City, where his testimony helped jail a motorcycle gang leader about a year ago. Boutwell said the victim had been in protective custody in Salt Lake for a time and acquaintances described him as "living in fear." He was beaten up and his apartment ransacked several weeks ago, the county attorney added. West Virginia has a total area of 24,282 square miles, of which 150 square miles are water surface. Cloudiness, Showers and Cool By United Press International The pattern of cloudiness, showers and brisk temperatures continued over the Utah- Idaho region and forecasters said there won't be much change. A persistant low pressure system in the upper atmosphere is causing "the year without spring," bringing spotty precipitation, cloudy skies and below normal temperatures to most of the Intermountain West. Highs Wednesday ranged from 60 in southern Utah to the upper 30s in parts of Idaho. St. George was high for Utah with 60 while Bryce Canyon's 36 was the low. Lewiston had 51 for the high reported Wednesday in Idaho. A 35 at Idaho Falls was the lowest high temperature in the Gem State. Boise reported 48 with .05 of precipitation while in Salt Lake City it got up to a nearly spring-like high of 49 with a trace of precipitation. Scattered showers were predicted over much of the area today but the amounts were forecast to be light. A slow warming trend should be in store.
