Ellington Estate NEW YORK (AP) -- Initially estimated at $200,000, the estate of composer Duke Ellington is to be administered by his son, Mercer K. Ellingon. Ellington.75, died May 24, leaving no will. Arrangements were made for the son, Ellington's only child, to serve as administrator in Surrogate Court here. By JA YSHARBUTT NASHVILLE, Tcnn. (AP) -Singer-guitarist Jerry Reed graduated from country to nu- tional stardom because of network TV. but his Music Row headquarters here is still just a plain, white wood frame house. You need the address to find it. There's no sign outside. The proprietor, a regular this spring on NBC's since-canceled "Music Country U.S.A.," is equally surprising in the flesh, Where some top performers here might cite only old-time country artists as their main musical influences, Reed, a fine guitarist, readily claims the late jazz guitarist Django Reinhardl as one of his. Mention Lenny Brcau. an obscure, legendary Canadian known mainly to plectrum pros, and Reed lights up like Christmas: "Greatest guitar player I've ever heard, and I've heard some guitar players." In short. Reed, a tanned, wiry native of Decalur, Ga., is among what Glen Campbell calls the "nc\v breed" of courv try performors artists equally at home not only in country music, but also jazz, blues and pop. A CROSSOVER Like Campbell, who gave him his first network break on CBS in 1969. Reed is what you'd call a "crossover," a country performer accepted by countrv and noncountry music f alike. Surprisingly Reed doesn't want a weekly country music show of his own on network TV. "I don't like people to see il every time they want to see it.' Reed said, sipping a cola drink in the small, eight-track office recording studio ho uses to trj out new song ideas or hear those pF others. "I like to keep it important. Put it on network TV week in, week out, you're overdoin' it The name of the hall game is going out and visiting those people. Fairs, concerts, that's where it's at." Starring in specials is anoth er matter, lie said: "Now you're gettin' down to the nitty gritty, talkin' my kind of Ian guage." However, he laughed, "if I do a show. I'm going to call the shots because I'm the one who A L E X A N D E R , Ark. (AP) -Jov. Dale Bumpers endorsed a 'ill Wednesday pending in the I.S. Senate that calls for na- ional standards of juvenile jus- ice lo he developed. Bumpers made the endorse- nent of the bill, sponsored by Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., during a dedicatory speech for a new multi-purpose building at the jtate Training School for Girls lore. The building, which houses administrative and counseling ffices and classrooms, cost 5193.239. The state appropriated 153,239 for the structure in 1971 and the remaining $10.000 came from the federal Law En- orcement Assistance Adminis- ration. Bumpers, a Democratic nom- nce for the U.S. Seriate, said Bayh's hill would "help keep children out of court" by seek- 'ng to develop alternatives to .raditional juvenile institutions. The bill would incorporate )asic protections for juveniles nto federal law. including many of the due process rights of adults, Bumpers said. It also would establish what Bumpers called a "long o v e r d u e institution" to serve as a nationa clearinghouse for delinquency prevention and treatment.

Henderson, director of he state Parks and Tourism Department, said Wednesday hat he is transferring $20,000 rom department cash funds for he operations of Ihe Ozark ·'oik Culture Center at Moun- ain View.

Hogg said he would favor building a new jail with the insurance settlemenl the county receives. . Prisoners currently are being edged at city jails at Dumas and McGehee, Hogg said. Opposes Oath LITTLE ROCK (AP) - J, Bill Becker, state AFL-CIO president, urged the General Assembly in a prepared statement Wednesday to stand against a loyalty oath proposal suggsted by state Rep, Bobby Glover of Carlisle. "Declarations of loyalty are useless and unworkable tools to avoid the hazards of totalitarian doctrines," Becker wrote. He praised Gov. Dale Bump ers for questioning the usefulness of a loyalty oath and asked legislators to' vote against' the proposal. "The real danger is that in endlessly crying wolf, our people will be confused and di vided and our ability to recog nize a real peril when it ap pears on the horizon wil be di! minished," he said. Becker said the far left poset a danger, but there was just as much danger to a democratic society from the radical arid re actionary far right. Bank Bomb Thrw* HOT SPRINGS, Ark.
