Firing of Hughes Executive Upheld LAS VEGAS (AP) A Judge Wled Saturday the directors of the Hughes Tool Co. had the right to control Hughes' million Nevada empire and to fire Robert Maheu, who had run the billionaire's properties in the state for four years. District Court Judge Howard Baboock said a proxy giving the tool company officials power to act for Hughes was valid and the signature "How- ard R. Hughes" on the bottom of it was genuine. The tool com- pany said the proxy gave it power to fire Maheu and take control of Hughes' Nevada Investment. Babcock dismissed as "not credible" the testimony of a wit- ness Introduced by Maheu who said he saw Hughes' departure from Las Vegas. The witness, LeVane Forsythe of Torrance, Calif., was part of an attempt by Maheu's attorney to show that a sick and ailing Hughes had been removed against his will In a power grab engineered by tool company executives. Maheu said after the judge's ruling that he was still con- cerned about Hughes' well being. "I will not leave a stone un- turned until I am thoroughly convinced he' is well and this was his he said. "Needless to say, I was not happy with the decision. Nor was I particularly surprised." Chester Davis took company general counsel and a leader of the tool company forces, said it was gratifying to know the tool company could do business in the state Just like other firm. "It is also gratifying'to have his property interests managed through his board of said Davis. Hughes, now reportedly on va- cation in the Bahamas, left his penthouse, hideaway atop the Las Vegas strip on Thanksgiv- ing Eve.

Smith, manager of the Hopes for Adjournment Despite Senate Cloture Vote WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate refused Saturday to cut oft a filibuster intended to kill funds for the supersonic trans- port. But behind-the-scenes ma- neuvers encouraged hope that Congress would be spared a forced return to work on Jan. 3. The off-stage struggle for workable compromises on ma- jor bills came against a back- ground of presidential threat to bring the new Con- gress into action on Jan. 3, instead of Jan. 21, coupled with his urging that Sunday and around-the-clock sessions be re- sorted to to break the legislative deadlock. Although there was little on the record, reports of progress were heard from the negotia- tions on: Special Session, Pg. 10-A The efforts concen- trating on a proposal that would permit funding of the Transpor- tation Department, Including SST, until February with assur- ances the Senate then could vote on the aircraft project.

The family assistance plan, another big log in the jam, got an administration-encouraging boost late Saturday afternoon when the Senate rejected by 65 to 15 a motion to kill the House- passed welfare-reform bill which includes the much-disput- ed guaranteed annual Income floor of J1.600 for an urban fam- ily ol four. i Gibson Discount Center in -Brookhollpw.

A slow-seUing item for the last three Chrislmases, the sudden demand for toy firearms caught local merchants unaware. Most retailers ordered short prior to the Christmas shopping season and have since had to reorder. It's been a better-than-average season for most all local merchants, whether their stores have featured toy departments or not. Clothing seems to be on all shnppers gift lists, with women's pants suits and men's shirts leading the lists. And if dear old Dad couldn't tell from his deflated pocketbook that Christmas was upon us, the number of ties under the tree should clear up the matter. Patterned and color-coordinated ties have been selling very well in local stores. Several stores Minters, Thorntons, Sears, and others report that sales have already exceeded their record day for last season. An unusually warm winter has helped keep customers coming Into the slores, and an extra shopping day, one more than last year, hasn't hurt business either. "We've been drawing well from throughout the said one obviously-pleased store manager. "I wouldn't want to be quoted on it, but we've even flrawn customers up from While the pleasant weather hasn't hurt business, it certainly hasn't done much for winter, merchandise, particularly outerwear.

It was the worst rioting in 25 years of American rule. In a four-hour outburst, riot- ers hurled thousands of gasoline bombs, rocks bottles at U.S. military and Okinawan police. Eighty-two parked American- owned cars were burned or de- stroyed, including six military police vehicles. The riot was sparked by a traffic accident in which a car driven by an American soldier struck and injured an Okinawan pedestrian at a crossing in Koza Maromi outside the Katiena base. The pedestrian's injury was described later as minor. At least 500 rioters charged through a gate of the air base, burned a guard post and dam- aged with fire bombs a wing of a newly built American school 100 yards inside the gate. MPs fired warning shots and hurled scores of tear gas shells to dis- perse the rioters. Thirty-five persons were treated for injuries at the U.S. Army hospital near the base, in- cluding 29 U.S. military police and three Okinawans. The other three were not identified. Most were treated for burns and bruises. At least 19 Okinawan rioters were arrested. An Amerjcan witness tald Okinawan police left the brunt of the riot control task to Ameri- can troops. He said he saw Okl- nawaMs filling bottles with gaso- line at nearby filling stations and distributing them to the rioters. The streets of Koza Maromi were Uttered with thousands of broken bottles and with garbage that had been hurled at the American troops, he said. All U.S. military bases on Oki- nawa were put on alert.
