County Attorney... Pat Holman1 filed the charges'as'a'result of an alleged fight between. Smith and his father, Hiram Edmond Smith, 69, last Thursday afternoon. The elder Smith died of a heart attack following the argument at his place of business, Smith's Country Store, 531 West Main. The state charges the son as- saulted his father and did "bruise, wound and injure" him in the al- tercation. The younger Smith was arrested about Thursday by Ada police. He pleaded not guilty to both County Court charges.

Fanfani had appealed for victo- ry as an endorsement of his center-left national government formed three months ago. But fi- nal results from the 34 largest ci- ties and towns in the election- representing of the total 3 million votes the four allied parties 49.3 per cent of the vote. Control of the Rome City Coun- cil, biggest prize in the weekend balloting in 1ST.cities and towns, eluded Fanfani's alliance by one seat. If we could see ourselves as others see us, we'd probably deny Gen. Fea. Corp.) Although the election outcome was watched as a possible indi- cation of the balloting in the gen- eral elections next year, Fanfani said his government would not re- sign even if the coalition .lost votes. The alliance includes the.Chris- tian Democrats, Democratic So cialists and Republicans, with outside support pledged from the Socialist party formerly allied with the Communists. The fascists on the, extreme right made only slight gains de- spite their most intensive'political campaign since the war. Mon- archists slumped badly, even in their oldtime stronghold of Na- ples. Democratic Socialists scored important gains, but not. enough in most .places to make up .for the losses of their Christian Dem- ocrat allies. In Rome, where half of the weekend's 3 .million ballots were cast, the Christian Democrats lost over 10 per cent of !the votes they received. in local elections two years ago. The party, while still Italy's >iggest, also had sharp losses in ?isa, where the Communists made gains. man of the International Control Commission. Singh said a .delegation from the 19-member Cabinet named Monday will go to Geneva three weeks to sign the 14-nation Geneva accords. The one blank spot in these ac- cords is a declaration by.Laos of the neutrality it expects to main- tain under the new government, to be headed by neutralist Prince Souvanna Phouma. Souvanna and the other faction- al leaders rightist Premier Prince Boun Oum and pro-Com- munist Prince signed the formal agreement on the coalition whose main task will be to bring peace to this divided kingdom. The premier-designate expects to present the new neutrals, representatives from the present royal government, and members of Souphanouvong's Pa- thet King Savang Vathana Monday at Luang Prabang, -the royal capital. The three princes formalized their compact at a meeting in Khang Khay, 'Souvanna's head- quarters on the rebel-held. Plaine des Jarres. Among those, on-hand was Gen. Phoumi Nosavan, deputy premier, defense minister and strongman of the outgoing regime who is be- coming a deputy premier and fi- nance minister under Souvanna. Two pro-Westrn neighbors of Laos appeared not to share in the general international approval of the Khang Khay agreement. Officials of Thailand, where American, troops and token Allied units are on guard against Communist infiltration, withheld comment. They apparently -adopt- ed a wait-and-see attitude. Saigon newspapers, which often reflect 'official thinking in Com- munist-threatened Sout Viet Nam, called for firm U.S. action to pre- vent a possible Red takeover in Laos. The newspaper Dan Moi de- clared this action "should be di- rect military intervention." However, approval of the agree- ment was manifest in capitals of the big powers. East and West. Jury's Set For Trial In Death Selection Is Finished Today; Brutier Faces Manslaughter Case Pontotoc County's Dis- trict Court recessed at noon today after enpaneling a jury in the murder trial of Roy Lee Bruner, 22- year-old Ada man. The jury was finally de- cided at two hours after court began. The venire consisted of five women and seven men. The trial will begin in the early afternoon before .District Judge John Boyce McKeel. By 11 a. .m. both defense and prosecuting' attorneys had chal- lenged three jurors. It appeared probable at that time the jury panel would not be decided be- -fore noon. Bruner is accused of the knife slaying of Albert Wayne Frazier, 18, during a scuffle in front of Frazier's home at 106 East Fifth, on May'17. Vein Is Cut Frazier died at Valley View Hospital of a severed juglar vein two hours after the fight. Bruner was arrested at his home a short time, after the incident by Police Chief Homer Gosnell and Detective Doyle Cranford. A knife, which police presumed to be the weapon used to kill Frazier, was found wrapped in a bundle of clothes inside Bruner's home at 2923 North Townsend. Bruner entered a plea "of in- nocent when brought before Jus- tice of the Peace Bert Ratliff the next day. He was held over for trial after a preliminary hearing May 25. Bruner sat almost motionless in court beside his defense attorneys Barney Ward and BorTMacy. His strayed from the jury under questioning by both Ward and Assistant County Attorney Francis Mayhue. Jurors Questioned Mayhue questioned the Jury throughout the morning with the assistance of County Attorney Pat Holman. Ward questioned and qualified each of the veniremen mostly on the basis of their opinion of the justness of self defense, even' if it resulted in the death of another human being. Several witnesses are alleged to have been at the scene of the crime. Questioning of witnesses will begin early Tuesday after- noon. 11 Cases Set Bruner's case is one of 11 set for- trial before District Judge John Boyce McKeel in the next two weeks. The' original docket included 18 cases but several have already been., disposed of. They were aU arraigned before Judge McKeel in District Court Monday morn- ing. Other cases include: State vs. R. K.

S. nuclear tests in the Pacific. This addition to the Russian snooper patrol was dis- closed today as the United States prepared for a second try at firing a nuclear device at a high altitude over John- ston Island. Informed sources indicated the shot biggest of U. S. test is likely late this week. The Federal Aviation Agency said Monday the shot more than 500 miles over the Johnston Island test area is expected to blot out instantly all high'frequency radio communica- tions in the Pacific. Some of the disruption will last 32 hours, or longer, the FA A laid. The first high-altitude test shot ended disastrously June 4 when a Thor missile carrying the war- head aloft was purposely de- stroyed after the rocket tracking system developed trouble. The presence of three Soviet-in- strument ships within 10 to 15 miles of the Pacific test area was announced bythe Defense Depart- ment 18 days .ago. It said they were obviously on a large-scale military mission. intelligence collection It appeared the Soviet research ships may have collected data from Sunday's plane-dropped .nu- clear device which exploded over Christmas Island and released the equivalent of from one to sev- eral" million tons of TNT. This was the one of the big- shots .in the cur- rent. U.S. test series. The .'new-Soviet ship was identi- fied as the I. Voyeykov, a sis- ter 'ship 'of the Shokal'skiy, the largest of the three research 'ves- sels which took up stationrjduring May. 'This means'the Voyeykov dis- places about tons and is equipped with extensive, scientific instrumentation. Although tie Pentagon gave no details, it ;was obvious the Navy has been keeping a. watchful .-eye on the.Soviet snooper fleet. Be- cause the Russians are in inter- national waters, there -is nothing this country can do to shoo them away. Since the Pentagon knows the name of the fourth vessel, it was apparent that American patrol planes must have flown rather close to it. Normally, in an operation of this sort, the Navy -assigns at least one ship to shadow.. Soviet craft. Sometimes, it is a destroyer, sometimes a submarine. No effort is made to hide from the Rus- sians, officials said. Among other things, the Voyey- kov is understood- to be fitted with a pad for launching meteorologi- cal rockets to study -the effects of nuclear explosions on the upper atmosphere. The, Defense Department has said .analysis by the Shokal'skiy's 16 laboratories could provide information, on bomb -design, yield, and similar data "which have significant mili- tary implications."
