Freeman his agency's handling of the Billie Sol Estes case today but acknowledged "some errors and shortcomings for. which I, as sec- retary of agriculture, must as- sume responsibility." Freeman's statements were in testimony prepared for the Senate investigation of the Estes case. The Senate Investigation sub- committee headed by Sen! JohnL. McClellan, is exploring how the Pecos, Tex., financier made' multimillion-dollar' profits under federal farm aid programs, and whether high-powered politi- cal influence deals helped him. As the hearing began, McClel- lan said Freeman's actual ap- pearance on the. stand would be delayed until afternoon. He said members of the com- mittee had not received copies of Freeman's statement. until this morning and his testimony, would be delayed to give them-time to study it. Freeman declared "no ..official or employe now in the depart- ment is known or can reasonably be believed to have improperly. accepted gifts or other- favors from Estes." "Estes received no special ben- efits as a result of favored treat- ment from the Department of Ag- he added. POSTPONES TRIAL Dis- trict Judge J. H.-Starley of Pecos postponed of Bil- lie Sol Estes on chargts of defrauding a fillow farmer and said he would move the case out of the West Texas .area. (AP "Freeman repeated what he has said before, that the' government "has lost no mony through its business with Estes.'" The secretary spelled out. his testimony in-a 50-page typed state- ment. In''it ..'he said Estes should, not have received: additional cotton acreage under scrutiny '..in said, the appointment '.of. .Estes' 'to the National'Cotton Advisory'Com- mittee was -a mistake'. Freeman said, however, that Undersecre- tary of Agriculture Murphy acted, in good faith in" ap.-: proving the appointment. The Senate subcommittee was told Wednesday that Murphy proved Estes' appointment last Dec. same day the-under- secretary had endorsed a proposed cancellation of cotton acreage al- lotments-to >Estes in some com- plex land deals the legality of which has been challenged by the department. "The undersecretary concluded that Estes' involvement, in the transfer problem was not a suffi- cient reason, for, dropping .him from the advisory Freeman said. He added that Murphy based this belief on an understanding that the 'allotment issue was- ,a civil legal dispute which would not affect Estes' standing as a committee member. The first day of tlie Senate in- quiry erupted into a political row set off by one of Freeman's sub- ordinates.

The state court reversed a sen- tence, given P.earmon J. Gossett, Oklahoma this county. Gossett was ed. Allen store' in January of 1981. the grounds for reversal was "improper remarks by the county, attorney.'.' "It is -improper fotv the .county attorney to .state his .personal opinion as to the guilt of the ac- cused or to make any statement in his closing argument outside the record for the purpose! of creating prejudice against the de- the' opinion said. "The evidence (in the case) creates a strong suspicion of guilt and when viewed in the light.of proof beyond a reasonable doubt, the case is a close one. It is al- together possible that; Tiad it not been for the unfair tactics of the prosecution, the' defendant might have been, acquitted. "A prosecuting attorney should confine his argument before the jury to a fair discussion1 of the is- sues in the case'. The" county at- torney in his argument, no right to supply the-lack of evi- dence or make, greater'the weight of the evidence in'any case."
