But, like many of her colleagues, she doesn't de' pend on palm reading for her support. Right now, her hus- oand said, the .income from palm reading amounts to "a dozen eggs every now and then."

Brewery pro- luction manager Ramsis Awad also claims a large number of narcotics .users are turning to beer rather than face life jail entences. Crowds of Egyptians line up iiitside the company's dis- ribution stores to purchase bot- les of Stella -- the best selling of the company's four beers -at 15 piasters a bottle, or about 35 U.S. cents.

The editor of the English^ language newspaper, The tian Gazette, recently plained of not only the varying price of Stella but also its varying quality.

Atty. Sam Weems of Des Arc 1 committed serious and intentional violations of the professional conduct code for lawyers, the Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct said Tuesday. The committee, in a brief filed with the · Arkansas Supreme Court, said the violations were not merely technical and that they warranted permanent disbarment. Weems has said his co- Woman Dies In Fire Al Home In Little Rock LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The body of Ollie Bea Reddicks of ' Little Rock was removed Tuesday from the ashes of the tin- roofed house where she burned to death Monday night, authorities said. Pulaski County sheriff's deputies said the woman -- bedridden for the past 30 years -died after a coal-oil lantern exploded and engulfed the house .house in flames. '· Lt. Gene Walther said Minnie Harris, who lived with Mrs. Reddicks, had to leave her friend behind when the one- room house became too hot. Mrs. Harris said she could not remember her own age, bul she estimated that Mrs. Recl- .dicks was 103, the deputies said. Walther said the structure was a mile back in the woods ;in the northwest portion of the county, inaccessible by motor 'vehicle. He said it had no mod- ,-ern utilities and the women depended on lanterns for light and the coal-oil stove for heat. ( o mingling of clients funds with lis own, rather than putting them in separate trust accounts as the code requires, was a technical violation that did not warrant such a severe penalty as permanent disbarment. There was no evidence of in- .ent to defraud his clients or that he benefited in any way, Weems said. Weems was disbarred by Judge Harrcll Simpson ot Poca- riontas, who was appointed as a special judge to hear the case. The Supreme Court later refused to stay Simpson's dis- b a r m e n t order, pending Weems' appeal, hut it said Weems could continue as prosecutor in the 17th Judicial District. State law does not require prosecutors _ to be licensed by the Arkansa's bar. The committee said Tuesday that Weems' argument aboul the violations being technical was "a nice way of saying thai there should not be any disciplinary rule...." The committee added, "The entire rule is technical. It way meant to be technical. The rule says to keep your client's mon ey separate from your own. Ii says, "Don't buy groceries and clothes with your clients mon ey.'....Tn short, any violation o: the 'rule is technical and any violation thereof is ground for disbarment. Certainly, repeated violations are grounds for dis barment." The committee said if the Weems case were merely one "of technical violation of the rules, the matter would not be nearly as serious as it is. This however, a case of serious m i s c o n d u c t involving con version of a client's funds." Weems was charged by the committee with signing the in surance settlement checks ol five clients without author izalion and disguisng the signa lures so that they would bo! different. He also was accusec of not telling the clients that he had their money, Alexander Raps Altitude Of Federal Agencies ·WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rep. Bill Alexander, D-Ark., charged Tuesday that many federal agencies "build an invisible vail between the governmenl and the people that governmenl "s intended to serve." Alexander made the com ment during the first day ol icarings on rural health care jefore the House Agriculture Committee's subcommittee on ·ural development, of which he is chairman. The remark followed lesti mony by Donald W. Whitehead "ederal cochairman of the Ap palachian Regional Commission who said many federal law and regulations "are written and administered in such a wa; that they do not fit the small dispersed population base" o rural areas. "The rules are designed b: and for persons with an urban orientation and implementin^ them outside concentrated pop ulation centers is frequently difficult, it not downright irr possible," Whitehead said "Further urban bias is buil into federal health care pro grams by a failure to recogniz the financial and technical pov erty of rural America," Alexander said planners don pay enough attention to the ru ral poor, even though the make up 17 per cent of the non metropolitan population, whil the comparable rate for th cities is only 10 per cent. "The political power in th Congress is in the cities," Alej ander said. "They vote the pro grams for the cities and that where the planners go -- to th money, not to the problems."
