Â·Representing owner Hembree, Attorney Jay Roy Penix sought the rezoning of the Oak Valley Subdivision property -a 13.3 acre tract on Hwy. 264 east. . ; . Penix asked that all the property except a 92Vi foot strip on the east border be re-zoned irom agricultural to single- family residential. He requested the 92'/z loot strip of land ad joining the Shilo Tank Company be rezoned from agricultural to industrial in order to create a buffer zone between the sub division and the light industry. The council granted both requests and then unanimously approved the final plat of Oa! Valley Subdivision. The Springdale Service Corp asked council men to rezone 1 lots from single-family resi dential to multi-family resi dential in iis American Sub division which lies beUvee; Gutensohn and Kings Roads. The lots -- an entire bloc! have to pay legal fees for the city's error. A resolution to correct a solution passed at the June council session was unani- o u s 1 y approved Tuesday ghl. The orginal resolution thorlzcd the city's mayor to x e c u t e a $20.000 grant reement with the Federal on the extreme west ot th subdivision --i border a poultr farm and Eddie Lee agricultual zoning of the Springdal Service Corp. said duple housing will be built on the 1 lots.

W) -The prosecution today attempts to tie 18-year-old Elmer Wayne Henley to .an assortment of items used in a homosexual torture and murder ring in which 27 teen-agers died. Henley is on trial for six ot those murders. The state expects to call scientific witnesses today to link physical evidence to Henley. On Tuesday, the jury gazed Â»t a plywood "torture board," f feet long and y) feet wide, to which the victims were handcuffed. Also brought into the court ms weeK was a wooaen ouay DOX" which, according to Heney's statements introduced at he trial, was used to conceal young men being taken to one of -three burial sites where the 27 bodies were discovered last August. The introduction of the evidence came both during and after the testimony of Sgt. David Mullican, a detective with the Houston suburb of Pasadena whose efforts resulted in Henley's indictment. Â·Defense attorney Will Gray was overruled on more than 125 objections since testimony in Stephan Publishes Study Of Protestant Hymns, Ecology Despite the fact that churchgoers in America are over- w h e l m l n g l y urbanites, t h e hymns they sing each Sunday morning that, have environmental reference are mainly rural in nature, according to Dr. Stephen Stephan, professor emeritus, of sociology at the University of Arkansas. Dr. Stephan, in an article published in the June 27 issue of the Arkansas Methodist newspaper, analyzes hymns from several books used by 'different denominations. The hymns are "replete with rural thought forms and imagery," Dr. Steftban said. Dr. Stephan concludes thai this could become an imporlanl tuftnr tn prnTnf-v. -As he n u l in their teachings. "The mass media has made man mon conscious and concerned with disturbing the relation between man and his environment," Dr. Stephan said, and added that this provides an opportunity for churches to make "meaningful" to modern man "the God-giver resources of the earth," and "the need to eliminate the waste of resources." Hymns are more than jus "music of tile church,'" Dr. Stephan said, rather they reinforce what he termed "ths teaching ministry." He ruiotef Rene Dubos, famous microbiologist, who said, "We sha not be able to solve the ecological crisis until we recapture some kind of spiritual relationship between man and h environment." he trial began Monday. Henley called Pasadena pa- it "This irrelevance can be rriade relevant through the message of ecology, a message that has religions significance." Of 72 hymns in "The Methodist Hymnal' 'that contain environmental reference, Dr. Stephan found that 66 were rural in nature; only six urban. Only one new urban hymn was added to the hymnal between 1939 and 1964, he found. He said much the same results are found in examining the 1956 hymnal of the Southern Presbyterian and the "Northern" United Presbyterian Churches. Even in the hymn book used by many Unitarian churches, t h e rural emphasis is pronounced, Dr. Stephan says. H i s research showed, 'however, that "The more fundamentalist^ a n d old timey' the hymn books are, the more rural is the imagery." Dr. Slephan pointed out that many urban worshippers, particularly in fundamentalist^ faiths, have been uprroled from rural heritages in recent years. TMÂ° ;hymns may "assuage feelings of alienation loneliness, he says. . One reason for the emphasis on rural themes, Dr. Stephan said, Is a bias against city and fjrban life growing from the early-day association of rural *reas with "the good life and of city life with that which is bad. "The city is (considered) the source of the bad: sin, vice, 1 poverty, crime, and more recent ills of pollution^ noise, waste and ugliness, 1 Dr. Stephan said. The churches could provide Â« real contribution toward making urban life more "congenial," Dr. Stephan argues, by including what he called "the ecological message" ThÂ» TIMES li On Tap of Th* News SÂ«vÂ«n Days a W*ek ce last Aug. 8 to tell them he ad shot and killed Dean A. iorll. 33, the man police say ras the leader of the toriure- uurder group. Police have also harged David Owen Br-x'Â«, 9, with four counts of murder -i the slayings. No trial dale las been set for Brooks. In a written statement given .0 Mullican, Henley admittet rilling six of the 27 youths. And n oral statements while he led jfficers to the bodies, Mullican aid Henley told details of the millings. Mullican said youths lured U Corll's home were tricked into donning handcuffs, then tied to he torture board and stripped. "Henley said they were handcuffed to the board and suuic- .irnes to a wall with their mouths taped with adhesive tape so they couldn't make any loise," Mullican said. Henley told of forms of sexual torture, Mullican testified. Most of the victims died shortly after they were strapped to the board, Mullican said Henley told him; but one jouiii, William Ray Lawrence li, stayed alive longer. Lawience. a neighbor of Henley's, is one of tiie six youths Henley is accused of killing. "Billy Lawrence was kept about three days becausp Dean Corll particularly liked him," Mullican testified. "Henlpy said that Lawrence was 'Â«/. ftr about three days chainad to the board."

With the help of Clark, Donn S t r e e t property owner corrected an error in the city zoning map at Tuesday meeting. When the new zonin map was drawn up, the Dont Street area was incorrect isted as commercial. The Ian was supposed to have been res dential. The council corrected tl error by rezoning the land bac to single-family residentia Clark abstained from all vot pertaining to the rczonii because he had personal helped property owners petiti for the rezoning. He told t council he did this because did not think the owners shou iatlon Administration. The grant, with $10,000 . cal money from Fayetteville d Springdale, is to be uscc update the regional airport greed contacted to write by NSNA letters en- orsitig the installation of a ignal at the main crossing. A matter the council has dis- ussed on and off for several cars, aldermen assured Mrs. 'aylor they would also contact Duller and local Frisco officials o-support the signallzatlon of he main tracks at the Huntsville Avenue dossing. In other business, the council leard the street committee's udy. AUTHORIZATION GIVEN Since Mayor Park Phillips mains hospitalized, Vice layor Charles McKinney was i sign the grant agreement ut he technically was no ulhorized to execute th alter. In a resolution Tuesda ight, the council formall uthorized McKinney to slg he papers. Aldermen voted to allow the eputy city clerk to set a earing date for the closing of earcy Street -- the portion of IB street which is adjoined on ilher side by Springdale Memorial Hospital property. The section to be closed ravels by the hospital parking ot, off Maple Avenue, the econd street east of Hwy. 71. The hospital plans to expand cross the street right of way. Councilmen approved Aug. 13 t 7:30 p.m. as the hearing date or discussion on closing that egment of Searcy Street. Spokeswoman for the North- ast Springdale Neighborhood Association ( N S N A ) , Mrs. 'oAnn Taylor asked the council o write the Frisco Railroad upporting NSNA's reqcst for signal lights at the Hunlsville Avenue railroad crossing -- the scene of several car-train collisions. SIGNALS REQUESTED Mrs. Taylor said her group, a f f i l i a t e d with Arkansas Community Organizations for Reform Now, has written Frisco officials to ask for signal ighls. According to her, the officials said that all tracks -- main and spur lines -- had to be signalized at the Hunlsville Avenue crossing. R. S. Fuller of Frisco's Tulsa, Okla. office said serialization of all tracks would greatly increase project costs. NSNA asked that the main track be signalized first, maintaining that this would eliminate most of the danger. Several businessmen in that recommendation that the low )id of $1,275 for a side-mounted rotary mower be accepted from h o Norlhwest Equipment Company. The street committee had advertised for bids on the mower to be used by the street department. Two bids on the same model mower were received: the Northwest Equipment Company bid and Rushing Mason's bid of $1.312.75. The council unanimously accepted the lower bid.
