« ·· Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Tues., July 16, 1974 . FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS From Wyoming To Arkansas Decision Delayed On Pipeline Construction LilSK, Wyo. (AP) -- A decision whether a ?2.2 billion coal slurry pipeline originating in Wyoming and running 1,000 miles to Arkansas will be built could be made within a month. But the decision could be delayed because of questions raised at a public meeting Monday by officials from South Dakota and the Wyoming slate engineer's office. State Engineer Floyd Bishop said at the conclusion of Ihe 3',4-hour hearing attended by 300 persons that ho would decide within 30 days whether Energy Transportation Systems, Inc. (ETSI), could proceed with plans for Ihe 38-inch underground pipeline. : The line would hau| 25 million Ions of low-sulfur coal annually from Northeast Wyoming's Powder River -Basin south of Gilletle lo power plants near Williams Seeks Dismissal 0! Charges After Jury Released ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) .lance device were properly pro-- Wayne K. Williams, an Arkadelphia attorney whose bribery trial ended in a hung jury last month, filed a motion here Monday to dismiss the charge, contending that since the jury was discharged without his consent he should be acquitted. Williams also filed a response to the order by special Judge Maupin Cummings of Fayeltc- ville which declared the mistrial. In Ihe response, Williams charged that the judge was prejudiced against him and was more interested in protecting Circuit Court Judge John Goodson of Texarkana. The docu- . ments, a motion to dismiss and two responses to court orders by Cummings were filed at Clark County Circuit Court by Williams' attorney, Boyd Tack- clt Sr. of Texarkana. Williams was accused of allegedly accepting $5,000 from B. F. Wheat Jr. of Crosselt in return for a probated sentence Wheat's son in a drug case. Cummings was appointed sented to the grand jury, that .he grand jury was properly seeded, that Goodson did not orce statements or confessions y Williams and that the grand ury indictment was valid. It also challenged the find ngs that the recordings obtain ed through the use of the sur veillance device were admis sible evidence. The motion a l s o dispulec what it called "a suggestion' by Cummings that he dis qualified Pros. Ally. Norman Smith of Texarkana from try ing the case upon a motion by the defendant.

IDABEL, Ihorities continued a search Monday fo the body of Steve Brinkley, 15 fo hear the case after both Goodson and Judge Otis Turner of Arkadelphia disqualified themselves. DISMISSAL CITED The motion to dismiss said, that "after a jury has been em- paneled and sworn in a crimi- , nal case any discharge thereof ] without sufficient cause operates as an acquittal, in that it effectually bars another trial for the same offense." The motions said that to have this effect the discharge must have been made without the consent -- expressed or implied -- of the defense. The right of the defendant to Insist that the trial, once it has begun, shall proceed to a verdict, is, according to the motion, "personal in nature, being designed for protection against arbitrary and oppressive criminal proceedings." It claimed that JVjlliams', attorney "begged thff judge- to' give the jury a little time' rather than arbitrarily dismissing the jury in a rage of anger." The motion disputes Cummings statement that one reason he declared the mistrial was that he felt a s u d d e n pain in his chest during jury deliberations. It contends that Cummings dismissed the jury because he didn't want to receive a verdict exonerating Williams. RESPONSE In a separate response to the mistrial order, Williams noted that all 12 jurors had signed an affidavit saying they could have reached a verdict in another five minutes of deliberation. The jury had reported during the deliberations that it was split 11-1 for Williams' acquittal. The response also said that Cummings' actions during th trial indicated that lie was biased and prejudiced against Williams. "The defendant alleges that these proceedings and activities should be determined by an impartial magistrate who does not feel that his sole responsibility is to protect a 'bugging' judge," the response said. Goodson testified during the trial that he directed detective Capt. Danny Sewell of the Texarkana, Ark., Police Department to place an electronic surveillance device on Wheat to record conversations between Wheat and Williams. RULINGS CHALLENGED The response also challenged several rulings by Cummings including his findings that Wheat was not an accomplice to the alleged crime, that Wheat voluntarily wore the surveillance device, that alleged confessions of Williams were voluntary and that Goodson "properly participated in the investigation of the defendant." The response also challenged Cummings' rulings that Goodson "properly arraigned the defendant after causing the defendant to be 'bugged,' properly called a grand jury in Clark County, properly empaneled and presided over the grand jury, properly testified against the defendant and properly contacted the state attorney gener? al and offered assistance against Ihe rights of the defendant before the stale Supreme Court...."

He said, however, th since the pipeline's life was e timated at 30 to 50 years, the should be no problem obtainin enough water for'the .project life span. imiMinny HELEN HELP US By HELEN AND SUE BOTTEL Byfrin'c Doll Cries Real Tears I really liked Tony until he arted talking marriage and m not ready for that! ,i But very time I try to break off ith him he starts crying real ears and saying he can't Jive ithout me. · ,| I finally said, "That's jit!" nd he went on a week^long runk.
