A "correction oF judgment" request is delivered to the chief prosecutor of the appeals court and asks him to suggest to the higher court a review of the case. A criminal law expert said, "This procedure works in only one case out of a thousand. " A second avenue open to the defense is to petition for a retrial.

Contrary to popular belief, the short story is alive and well and flourishing in the hands of such highly talented writers as Maeve Brcnnan. In the 13 stories in this excellent book, Miss Brcnnan demonstrates again and again ler great gift of insight into the luman soul as well as her remarkable talent for using words in exactly the right way to'create a complex image or strike a certain mood. Divided almost equally between locates in the New York City area and Dublin, the stories primarily concern tlic-m- s e l v e s with the interrelationships between people, whether close, such as that between husband and wife, or dis tant, such as that between a discontented housewife and a beggar who has come to her door for years.

(Atlantic Little, Brown $5.95.) This is not an easy novel I get into, nor, having managei that, to understand. The plot seems to operate o two levels, the real and the un real, and the reader never i quite sure when he is dealin with shadow and when wit substance. The novel a p p e a r s t be abolut a psychotic y o u n man who, while confined in sanatorium, is trying to wril story about his life before hi confinement. But, since th writings are meaningless to a but the young man, one neve is quite sure whether this othe lite he writes of is real or fi tional, a product of his di ordered imagination. The odd thing is that once til reader gets involved in this st' ry-within-a-story theme he coi tinues to read on in hope i finding some kind of resolutioi There isn't. Not really. Wha remains after the book ha been finished is a feeling of di satisfaction at not having bee able to fit together all the par of this lierary puzzle. Dan Jacobson, who has previous books to his credi writes a tight, well-chisele prose that at first glance seem simple enough to understand, isn't. ayed off against the stupid, citllhy woman who dotes m and the domestic help who alhc him and bring him to his ell-deserved f a l l from gr;ice. The Irish stories, by contrast, re .somber in tone with littUi urnor intruding.

Poltergeist, by definition, is a ghost who throws tilings, but they also stink up a place, howl and even can be dangerous, ".atcly, scientists have comu to .he conclusion that much oE the poltergeist activity is caused by ) young boy or girl in puberty. For some strange reason they can up.sot the normal events of a household and cause knockings, hangings and all sorts of things around a house. Steiger tells about the poltergeist who dug rock and roll, the one that came to an office and even the army's store with the walking boots. lie also recalls the vicious BEAUTIFULLY REMEMBERED THE MEMORY OF OLD ACK. By Wendell Berry. (Har- :ourt Brace Jovanovich. $6.95). Jack Becchum is very old, in iis 90s.

Berr is primarily a poet who als writes novels on occasion an his poetic skills are revealed t best advantage in this fine] written story about the life o an old man, His use of the contrapunta technique to draw this lovini portrait of Jack is most skillful As the title indicates, the boo deals with both Jack s memo ries and the memories of him by those who knew and love him over the long years of hi life Fine writing aside, this sti is a most refreshing book t read -- wonderfully under stated and yet so very muc alive. ghost of florley, the disrespectful poltergeist of Epworth who plagued a minister and his ·imily and Jeff the invisible longoose of the Isle of Man.

One young woman named Esther Cox was possessed by a demon -- or poltergeist -- ifter she refused the advances if a young man.

THE SUN'S GOU, by Smith Klrkpatrlck (Houghton- M i i r i i n -- $5.85) This Is the story of an Arkansas mountain youth who hitches and walks 1.800 miles to ship aboard the merchant vesol fOkonk. Known as "The Kid,'-' he carries only his sea bag and an Ishmacl curiosity to sco thd world. Once under way he .find* much to learn -- about sea life and about people. His teachers arc a strange lot, There is the aged bosun, the wildly tattooed male and the d r u n k e n captain. "The Kid," meets up with love, violence and all the driinr ken, brawling brutality of man, Beginning as a youthful adventure. the voyage ends with self- discovery and the awful hurt of parting love. Smith Klrkpatrick was raised in Paris, Arkansas and attended Arkansas Tech. He served as a pilot in the Navy and received a U.S. in Journalism, as well as an M.A. from the University of Florida. The story moves along deceptively quiet, salty yet lyrical. It should interest land-locked sailors, especially since It has a touch of Arkansas mixed in both in "The Kid", and in the author.

This reviewer enjoyed the book, while not taking much of it seriously. It is that kind of book. Xaviera a f t e r being forced to leave the U.S. is now in Europe or Canada, or wherever she just happens to decide to go. She is no longer a professional. Now she writes a column in a man's magazine. Larry tells how he met her in Puerto Rico when, she was using the n a m e of Cookie. He said he talked her into changing her name to Xaviera Hollander. Anyone who buys this book should read it with tongue in cheek, even though the author apparently means every word of it. It is. in a sense, a fun book and the author's attempt to rid himself of the devils he is apparently carrying. It is a difficult book to review because of the many explicit scenes he recalls. NEED SEEN FOR CHANGE THE REMAKING OF THE CHURCH, by Richard P. Mo- Brien (Harper and Row) The myths surrounding th» Pope and the belief that he is infallible in all things (not part of the early church teachings) should be dispelled by having him elected for a limited number of years only and by removing his power "to function as an absolute monarch, w i t h o u t limitation, without accountability, without the possibility of correction," says Father Richard P. McBrien, recent president of the Catholic Theological Society of America. He puts forth this idea In. ' ' T h e Remaking Of The Church," in which he discusses the present conflict within the Catholic Church that has resulted from efforts made by Pope John XXIII at the Second Vatican Council to change the Catholic Church from a monarchical institution into a democracy. The mistake made at Vatican II, he writes, was in trying to impose reforms from abova without adequate preparation of members to help them understand why changes were necessary. This aroused the resistance of traditionalists who clung to set patterns, he says, and thus polarized the forward thrust of those who desire more changes, "A church of armed camps, suspiciously facing one another across a kind of DMZ" is the result, he writes. McBrien explains in his book why each group has responded as it has, and suggests 13 steps he believes church leaders should take to break the deadlock and keep the church which is in crisis from dying. NEW YORK (AP) - A federal court jury turned its attention Saturday toward the credibility of key government witnesses as it deliberated for a third day the criminal conspiracy case against former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell and ex-Commerce Secretary Maurice H. Stans. Among targets of scrutiny was ousted White House counsel John W. Dean HI, At the same time, the nine men and three women jurors continued to review perjury charges against Mitchell, onetime law and order bastion of President Nixon's Cabinet. However, the jury's first request of the day--and the fourth sent out to'federal Judge Lee P. Gagliardi since they got the case at 4:55 p.m. Thursday--could apply also to Stans, and constitute an enlargement of the scope of the panel's deliberations. Hitherto, they have appeared to be concentrating mainly on the government's case against Mitchell. Stans and Mitchell are accused of conspiring to obstruct a Securities and Exchange Commissjon fraud investigation " r multi-millionaire financier co, was granted total immunity rom prosecution in return for iis testimony, although he was co-defendant with Mitchell and Stans in the indictment. The bulk of his testimony was directed alike at both defendants. Richardson actually handed over Vesco's $200,000 in $100 bills. He testified that as he did so, he told the former commerce secretary that Vesco still needed help in his problem with the SEC. COUNT BASIS Richardson quoted Stans as replying that this was Mitchell's bailiwick. Stans denied any such , remark, and this formed the basis of one of the perjury counts against liim. Although named a co-conspirator with Mitchell and Stans, Richardson was not indicted. By custom, this is a reward for prosecution testimony from a witness involved in a purported crime. of Robert L. Vesco in return for a secret $200,000 cash contribution to President Nixon's 1672 re-election campaign. The defendants arc charged Jointly with one count of conspiracy and two counts of obstructing justice. In addition there arc six separate counts of perjury against both Mitchell and Stans, CHARGE TO JURY Gaglliirdl, In his charge to the jury, had directed that no witness be rejected out of hand as unbelievable, However, the credibility of Dean and two other chief government witnesses -· former New Jersey Republican bljfwig Harry Scars and Laurence Richardson, Vesco's onetime right-hand m a n --was open to question, ha aald, because all Inron were accomplices with Mitchell and Slans In the purported conspiracy. "Tho testimony of nn nccom pllco should ha mod w l l h ffrenl caution nnd Mrutlnl/«rl close l.v," fiiigllarri! hiul written in that pnrt of his charge that he reread at tho Jury's request. "You may consider nny bencfil the wllnens may derivn or ha? derlvrd from his testimony."

The checks from the Foundation, which is supported by the Aluminum Company of America, were presented re ccntly by James W. Wells, Alcoa operations manager for Arkansas, nnd n, Moy Smith, public relations manager for the company's Arkansas operations. Both are from Benton. The larger of the two grants was for $10,000 and represented Alcoa's annual contribution to the Alcoa Distinguished Professorship In the Department of Chemical Engineering,. This Is the seventh annunl contribution to the professorship and the a m o u n t was raised $1,000 this yoar.

Dean's testimony was directed aggainst both defendants and figured strongly in the areas of both conspiracy and perjury. He admitted from the witness stand however, that he hoped his testimony would win consideration in his behalf when he is sentenced later in Washington as an admitted conspirator in the Watergate break-in of Democratic national headquarters, June 17, 1972. Dean, like Richardson, was an unindicted co-conspirator here. The judge also reread his charge as it applied to former SEC general counsel and later chairman, G. Bradford Cook. The latter admitted on the witness stand that he was a five time liar under oath about the Vesco matter, not only before the grand jury, but also before two congressional committees. His trial testimony figured in the joint conspiracy char""':, and also in a perjury count against Stans. CAUTION URGED "The testimony of nn admitted perjurer is to be considered with caution and weighed wllh great care," Gagliardi told the jurors for a second time. As for the testimony of Mitchell and Slans In their own defense, Gagliardi read that defendants have an inducement to tailor their testimony since they have much at slake. But ho added: : "When, as here, n defendant docs testify, it is the function of you, as Jurors, to assess his credibility the same as von assess the credibility of any other witness. H by no means follows . . . t h a t he Is not capable of lolling n straightforward nnd truthful story."
