A number of the speakers at c Sunday gathering also said at they had no quarrel with e terrorists' methods. "There is a diversity of forms ncl means by which the Puerto ican people struggle for inde- endencc and national liber- ,ion. This is one of the neans," said Juan Mari Bras ecrctary-gcneral of the Puerto lican Socialist party. "I do not ondemn it." At a news conference after he rally, Mart Bras was joinec Miss Fonda, Miss Davis ant ,hcrs. When asked to commeni n the bombings, Irwin Silher ditor of the Radical Guardian, aid Mari Bras had expressed ic views of those present.

The 4-3 ruling upheld the rul- ig of Circuit Court Judge Tom . Digby of Little Rock, who ismissecl the suit filed by Aransas State Highway Employs Local 1315 for an order to cquirc'the commission to have e deductions made. The suit was filed under Act 70 of 1973, which says deduc- lons may be made from pay- oll checks only for specified urposes, including union dues vhen such deductions are re- [uested in writing by state em- iloyes. The apppeal from Digby's ruing asked the Supreme Court to ssue the order sought by the awsuit. Associate Justice J. ^red Jones, writing the major- ty opinion, said the court could grant such an order only when he duties the union sought to mpose on the commission were clear legal duties specifically spelled out by law. Jones said the majority had concluded that the payroll provisions of the law under which the suit was filed were permissive, rather than mandalo- ·y, and, at the least, could not ie said to be "clearly mandatory." Therefore the court turned clown the union apppeal. Associate justices George Rose Smith, John Fogleman and Con ley Byrd joined in the majority opinion. Dissenting were Chief Justice Carleton Harris and associate justices Lyle Brown and Frank Holt. They concluded the provi- lation arc among tho explanations offered for the in- ·ease. "Ten years ago, a lot of joaching was a carryover of .he old tradition of living ofl the land." said Norma Ames of .he New- Mexico Game and Fish Department. "Now your poachers contain a much larger percentage of urban people concerned about getting meat." M o s t poaching involves deer--bunting them without licenses or permits, shooting them out of season, hunting at night or with spotlights and illegal killing of does. The kings of ancient Assyria, faced with similar problems protecting the royal preserves, resorted to cutting off the bow arm of poachers. In 19lh century England, judges just shipped poachers off to Australia. In Ohio, the maximum fine for deer hunting without a permit is now $500 and 30 days in jail. Without returning to the punishments of old, officials in several states said more severe penalties were necessary now to deal with the poaching problems. "We're going to have to keep fines in line with the price of meat," said Charley Kelly, director of Alabama's Game and Fish Department. Texas officials reported 118 Brilliance Of Social Event Is Dulled By Economic Gloom NEW YORK (AP) -- The gaiety of guests at the April in Paris Ball, reputedly the most lavish event of tho New York social season, was dulled by the economic gloom that has darkened life tor many in less rari- ticd social strata. "I don't approve of things like this when the world is facing snch a serious economic crisis," Harry Plait, president of Tiffany and Co., said at the bali Friday night. "Surely the money could he put to better use." sions of the law in question were mandatory. Harris, who wrote the minority opinion, pointed out that the law also made provision for deductions for withholding taxes Social Security contributions and contributions to the State Retirement System. He characterized these as "items that we all know to be mandatory." Other deductions provided for violations during August of the two major hunting laws--killing or possession of deer out of season and hunting at night. Thai was up more than 100 per cent from the 58 violations reported in August of last year. Despite fines, some people feel poaching is worth the risk, said Henry Burkctt, director of law enforcement for tiie Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife. "When inflation is up to your eyeballs, they feel that the free meat can save them money unless they get caught," said Burkctt. Like other state officials, Burkelt reported that most of the illegal hunting was being done by people who wanted to put meat on their own tables. However, t h r e e men were ined $5.060 after being stopped n Bctlon, Texas, with 13 dead deer. Burkett said they were caving venison at cafes anc ining up customers for a regu- ar run. In Michigan, there were 5,500 p o a c h i n g arrests between January and June of this year, up 500 from the same period ,ast year. Mississippi officers lave handled 1,896 more poaching cases this year than last. Fines totaling $249.0DO have oeen handed out in Mississippi this year, up $62,000 over last year. Madame Gerard Gausscn, wife of the French consul gen oral, took a different view: "Of course balls like this are important. It gives a lot of money to charities in France." Another 'guest taking a dim view of the current state of the economy was Mrs. Laura Johnson, a New York socialite in a juffy. gold-threaded gown by Christian Dior. She pointed to a dazzling diamond necklace anc asked to be quoted as saying, "Instead of watching my money go down the stock market, I prefer to see my money bus diamonds -- by Bulgari -- go ing down .my decollete." The 23rd annual ball was held to benefit the American French Foundation Charities, including Odyssey House and Cancer Re search. Organizers said the bal earned $150.000 last year. The ball's organizers said 1, 200 people would attend, bu waiters serving the five-cours meal estimated 900 plates. Tickets for the fete held :he Waldorf-Astoria's Gran Ballroom, decorated .simpl with ferns and candles, sold fo $175 a person. But a random survey of dozens of tuxedoe and sequined guests uncovere none who had paid for a ticket Many of the guests seemed t have come to the ball for mor t h a n just a glittering evening The husband of a prominen 53/4% 61/2% 6 3 A% We bave a savings program and interest rate to meet your needs.

The ball was given in honor Palm Beach society's Mrs. ephen Sanford, who has been u national chairman of the all for many years.

Turner St., unlocked. The items were stolen from her children's bedrooms. siana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Southeast Missouri. Utility President Floyd W. Lewis said revised lax laws made the change possible. "The Louisiana Legislature, in its 1973 session, acted to eliminate duplicate corporate franchise taxes on the s a m e dollars of capital in a public utility holding company and its Louisiana subsidiaries, and this year the new Louisiana Constitution removed a second exposure by including stocks among the specific exemptions from ad valorem taxes," said Lewis. "These changes m a d e Louisiana competitive as a location for headquarters of holding companies like Middle South." The operating companies of the Middle South Utilities System are Arkansas Power jight Co., Arkansas-Missouri J pwer Cr., Louisiana Power '-light Co., Mississippi Power Light Co., and New Orleans Public Service Inc. Lewis said Middle South has invested $3.3 billion in its plant and facilities, and is carrying out a 5600 million annual construction program through 1978 to serve its customers. 1 We feel that having the corporate offices of Middle South Utilities located in and identified with our servce area wll accrue benefte to the M i d d 1 e South Utilities System companies, the customers served by the system operating companies, and the stockholders who reside in the area," Lewis added. David itrode was upheld on a charge of assault with intent to kill n connection with the stabbing James Hamblin at a Tyson's oods plant in December 1973. The defendant contended on appeal his trial was prejudiced when the sheriff, while tcsti- 'ying, showed the jury a knife with a blade-length equal to that with which Hamblin was said to have been stabbed. The weapon actually used was n o t found. The Supreme Court said that since Strode's own attorney had exhibited a knife with a blade shorter than that of the alleged stabbing weapon, it w a s all right for the sheriff to show one with the same length blade as the missing weapon. The court reversed the conviction of William Jefferson Swaim on a charge of delivery of a controlled substance. The court said Swaim's attorney was not given enough time to prepare for the trial of the case. The attorney, William H, Howell, took charge of the case after Swaim's 'ge of first lawyer, Larry R. Forelich, was founc to be licensed to practice law n Texas but not in Arkansas. Howell asked for a con tinuance to give him time to study his debit's case, but the, trial court refused to allow more time. Swaim was convic ted and then appealed on thi ground that more time shoulc iiave been allowed. LET'S CUT THE RED TAPE AND GET FAYETTEVILLE MOVING AGAIN RAYMOND D.

Mitchell hospital, medical and life insurance, concern matters which result in benefit for employes, Harris said. "The examples, to me, clear- r suppport my original premise, iial the act was passed for the lenefit of the individual state imployes, and was a mandate o the several state departments," Harris wrote. He said that the use of the vord "permitted" was tied to he language specifying the inly purposes for which deduc- ions could be made and that he law was mandatory when a mion dues deduction was requested in writing by a stale imploye. Unemployment has aggravated the situation this year. "A person who has lost his job may be more interested in providing food for himself and; his family," said .Anthony Dean, director of the Illinois Department of Conservation. "And someone who is not working may have more time to enter into outdoor pursuits." Poaching of fur bearing animals is also on the increase in Illinois, and Pheasant poaching is on the rise in the Black Hills of South Dakota. "Some of the pheasant activity may be for cheap meat, fjut some is also because residents sometimes stockpile dead birds in hopes of selling them to non-resident hunters," said Warren Jackson, chief of the state Game and Fish Division. Ciiy r Federal Workers Relax City and federal workers were given a 'brief vacation today as local offices were closed in honor of Veterans Day. The doors of the Washington taurlhousc were open, though, and county workers there were involved with the business of this rainy Monday morning. State offices were also in operation today, and students at the college, high school and s e c o n d a r y levels attended sses. The county and city jails were open, as always, for criminal customers. Crime, heedless of the holiday, took a slight increase with an early morninf drug arrest in Fayetteville anc several small thefts around the county. Police Plan Holiday Fest SPRINGDALE -- A haunted house, free drinks and candy, apple-bobbing contests, and other games will be featured in the second annual Springdale Patrolman's Association Halloween Carnival. The carnival will be helc Thursday, Halloween night, from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Springdale National Guard Armory on East Sunset Avenue. Open to children aged 14 and under, the carnival's purpose is to keep youngsters from trick- or-treating on the streets at night and thus reduce accidents, vandalisms, and injuries. Policemen hope that those who still go trick-or-treating will do it in the afternoon. Last year's carnival was very successful with an estimated 1,000 children participating. Police Chief Joe Sims said the carnival apparently helped reduce by half the number of calls usually investigated by police on Halloween.
