Jack Wilams ordered Tyger returned Arkansas Friday, in accor- ince with state law. Arkansas thorities say he is not eligible r parole and can request ex- utive clemency only after he once again in custody. Authorite's say he still owes ost of a three-year term for a othing store robbery and a even-year stretch for another obery, plus a concurrent hree-year term for the pre- ious escape. The escapee's lawyer, John iboud Sr., contends that Tyger nay not have to return to Aransas to be granted clemency, [e noted that Gov. Dan Evans f Washington paroled a Georia prison escapee. Abpud said e sent a newspaper clipping of lat story to Gov. Williams ilong with a request that he re- :onsider sending Tyger back, "President Ford granted clemency to Nixon without bring- ng him from California back to Washington, didn't he?" asked Aboud. Meanwhile, citizen groups leaded by Mrs. Bill Fannin and Tony Jiacopelli have been gathering signatures on petitions since Friday, calling on Bumpers to grant clemency and 'recognize that Tyger has been rehabilitated and proven himself an asset to this comu- njly." The Rev. David Sholin, chairman of the Arizona Citizens Committee on Corrections, started a legal defense fund and said his group will send an appeal for full pardon to Bumpers. Jiacopelli's group held a rally Sunday at Palo Verde High School and announced that 1,500 signatures had been obtained. Aboud said he was doing legal homework over the Labor Day weekend and hoped to delay Tyger's return to Arkansas by two or three months. But Tyger says he may be back in Arkansas by Tuesday. "He's working hard, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed," said Tyger. "It's hard to believe the people will support us like this. These days a man doesn't even know his neighbor. Just saying thank you to everybody doesn't seem like enough."
