6B · Northwes* Arkansas TIMES, Sun.. Oct. 27, 1974 FAVETTEVILLE. ARKANSAS For City Employes Physical Fitness Program Begins By JACK WALLACE TIMES Start Writer Huff, puff, pant, groan and if you think that's bad, just wait till the next day when the sore ness sets in. But, at least, the end result will be worth working for, say the participants of a new physical fitness program for city employes. For an hour a night, twice a week, city policemen, fire- m e n a n d workers f r o m other departments lift weights exercise, run and swim to get in shape. The outcome, at least for the first few sessions, is soreness and exhaustion, but as the pro gram goes on things become much better. The program was designed by Dale Clark, director of the city's Parks and Recreation De partment, to give city employes an opportunity to maintain the degree of physical fitness called for by the individual's occu pation. Clark's program started on Oct. 14. and, to date, 11 city employes have signed-up for the course. Clark said he hopes more will take advantage of the program in the future, once things are a little better estab lished. "My real hope is tha we Can get a lot of people in volved in the program and keep it going," Clark said. The group meets Tuesday am Thursday nights at the Fayette ville Youth Center on California Drive. A session takes abou an hour before the participant WARMING UP FOR FITNESS PROGRAM three city employes begin the arduous task of getting their bodies in shape. North Carolina Still Uses Old Statute CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) --| Recalling the days of posses and vigilantes, North Carolina maintains a statute which in effect deputizes the citizenry and allows officers to shoot designated felons on sight. The statute, enacted in 1866, empowers judges to declare felony fugitives outlaws. Once a person has been declared an outlaw, he is subject to arrest by any citizen. If the outlaw refuses an arrest warning, any citizen "may slay him without accusation or impeachment of any crime." Slate officials say they can- nol determine how many persons have been declared outlaws in modern times, although the statute has been used against four men in the last six months. There is no record of a modern outlaw ever being shot by a citizen, officials say. In one of the later/, instances I 19-year-old youth facing 6! years imprisonment for various ; robbery convictions was de : clsred an outlaw after he es i ceped from a Fayetleville jail. : Law officers who.have sough ' : outlaw status for felons saj ; they do not expect private citi ; zens to go after criminals like posses of old. "It's not a hunting license," said Burley Mitchell, district attorney of Wake County. "If a felon flees, law enforcement officers cannot shoot him unless the officer determines he's in immediate danger. . .Now if he becomes an outlaw, the law enforcement officers or any private citizen can shoot him. What it really does is deputizes the citizenry arid 'gives law enforcement officers more authority." AMBUSH OUTLAWED The statute does not empower officers or private citizens to lie in ambush for an outlaw.. In a turn-of-fhe-century decision, lie North Carolina Supreme determined that outlaws must be "called upon and varncd to surrender before hey are allowed to be slain." The statute itself gives wide atitude to judges in labeling clons as outlaws. Any judge of he state Supreme Court, Supe- 'ior Court "or any criminal court," or any two justices of .he peace, need only "to receive information that a felony las been committed.. and that such"- a person flees from jus- ice" ' ' ' ation. vided a judge deems that his guilt or potential danger appear convincing.

AP) -- The shooting death of Rebecca Stacy, 25, of Albuquerque probably will go before a gram; jury "in the next two weeks or so," Asst. Dist. Atty. Joseph Jelso said Thursday. "We have some things we're still trying to get," he said. One item is a transcript of long conversation that's being typed tip" and another is "some scientific evidence," Jelson said. IVfiss Stacy, who was gradu ated from .the University of New Mexico Hay 19, died May 27 at Bernaliilo County Medical Center of a ' gunshot wound in the head. Police said Miss Stacy, who had modeled and apppeared on television in Albuquerque ant Kansas City, apparently was wounded while visiting Mr. ant Mrs. Ron Hamilton at their At buquerq'Ufi · residence. Officers said Mrs. Hamilton told them a .38 caliber pislo' she was handing to Miss Stacy during a discussion of firearms accidentally discharged. City detectives turned their information over to the district attorney's office. Miss Stacy was the daughter of Rebecca Jane McCall Stacy of Kansas City, Mo., and Allen Dodson Stacy of Houston, Tex. Miss Stacy's mother was Miss Arkansas of 1(M6 and firsl runnerup to Miss America. I the showers and head home r on lo work. SIT-UPS AND WEIGHTS Easl session starts off with bout 10 minutes of calislhen- cs, including knee bends, sills, push ups and several ihers. Then the group s t a r t s i oti the weights, some of ·hieh weigh as much as 400 ounds. This goes on for nether 20 to 25 minutes. After the weight lifting, the nen retire to the football field 'here they run and walk round the track for about 15 minutes. They run the track wice (a half-mile) and then valk around twice. This is done nainly to loosen up the muscles .tier the weight lifting. Finally comes swimming he Youth Center pool, where hose who are able swim three aps of the pool before going o the showers. Clark, stresses that the group s not simply building muscles mt trying to tone and develop he ones they already h a v e 'Since the body is mainlj miscles, they should be main .aincd in top shape at all :imes," he said. Clark recommends that the men start oft slowly and built up to the heavier weights and onger distances gradually. He also encourages the participant o continue some sort of excr cise program on their own especially on weekends. "It's the kind of thing tha everyone should be doing There is no way to majntaii any degree of physical fitnes: without some kind of regula sxeycise program," Clark said. EVERYONE INVITED All city departments are invited to join in the program aut, to date, only members q the police, fire, street and busi ness departments have att'endet :he 'meetings. Assistant Police Chief Glen Eliggins commented, "I thinl the program is definitely worth While, because many of us don' get the proper exercise. A po [iceman's job is mostly rncntc so he doesn't get a chance to get good phyaical exercise." "The day after the firs session," said Patrolman Rand; Bradley, "I was sore as thi devil, out after several sessions I'm not that way anymore, thoroughly enjoy the program You ride around in a patro :ar all day and you tend t put on a few pounds here an there. This program is a grea way to keep in good shape After all, you never know whe you might need it." Another participant, Patro' man Larry McCawley, said h too liked the program. "If something we've been needin for a long time around here." At first, several of the part cipants 'took a lot of goo natured ribbing when the arrived at work the next da complaining of sore muscle, but the ribbing sort of fizzle out after successive session when the men began showin up feeling better and in belle physical condition than their c orkcrs.
