Wcslon, controversial editor and a would-be write-in candidate for governor, said today he would tile suit against the Republican party lo recover $1,495 of the $1,500 f i l - ing fee he paid to be a candidate in the May 28 Republican primary. Tile suit will be filed in Pulaski Circuit Court by Neat Sebastian of Little Rock, an attorney, Weston said. He said the fee was exorbitant and w a s "part of a general political conspiracy of both the Democratic and Republican parties of Arkansas to inhibit and discourage large numbers of citizens from ex- Youthful Offenders NOBLESVIT.LE, Ind. (AP) -While in police custody, Brian Landis of Noblesville drove off \vith a patrol car, lied about his name and address, commandeered a police radio ami disarmed the chief of police. Brian is '1 years old. He wandered away from home while his mother was sleeping and took police on a wild goose chase (hat ended after they bribed him with candy and sweets to tell them his correct name and address. ercising constitutional right to be candidates on the basis of equality under the law for the sole reason thai they do not have of cannot secure a large amount of cash in order to literally buy the right to be a candidate," Weston said. "A nominal fee of 55 is all that can constitutionally be charged for filing as a candidate for nomination by any party or as an independent candidate," he said. "Therefore, we are asking the return $1,495 of (lie $1,500 fee for which the Republican party, operating a monopoly, had sold me the right to be on. the Republican ballot. "Besides that, the Republican primary itself aws a contrived, unconstitutional and sloppy job." Weston said. Weston attempted several times this year to file as a Republican candidate. After first accepting his registration and filing fee the GOP returned the fee and rejected Weston's candidacy. Bob Scott of Little Rock, the state GOP counsel, said Weston was unlit to be a candidate on the Republican ticket. Weston filed suit and the courts ordered the GOP to put his name on the ballot and accent his fee. The party did. In [lie primary, Weston was badly beaten by Ken Coon of Conway, executive secretary of the state GOP. Since then, he has declared that lie would be a write-in candidate for governor. Wcslon said he had been told that his filing fee was used to pay Coon's salary as executive secretary. "The parly was in arrears on Coon's salary, and it's been reported to me that he got bis back salary by the use of my fee," Weston said. Apprentices Needed PRAGUE (AP) -- Industry in the Czech republic is getting only 80-85 per cent of apprentices it needs and even that with difficulty, Svobodne Slovo Daily reported recently. Up to 70 per cent pupils want to a t t e n d secondary schools. Those willing lo be apprenticed want to be auto repair men, electricians, dressmakers and hairdressers. Branches such as chemistry, glassmakers, carpenters, textile workers and locksmiths cannot find enough to fill the quota in spite of spending considerable sums on advertising for possible recruits.
