The vote was to to 6 against attaching a refurbished version. Of the family assistance plan to a pending social Security Bill that is scheduled to reach the Senate floor Early in december. From the administrations viewpoint this was an improvement Over the first try in Early october when the committee Defeated the original family assistance plan 14 to i but the showing was not Strong enough to provide much encouragement for the ultimate test on the floor next month. As a partial substitute for the presidents program the committee voted 13 to 3 for the authorization of a series of tests trying out the family assistance pm an and some alternative aides in a few states or cities before Congress makes any final decision. Continued from Page one he saw Christian receive the $5,000. Sanders told the jury in his closing argument that Hampton a testimony should be considered with a great care and Camion a according to Tho instructions As to the Law guiding the Case. He pointed out that Hampton has four felony convictions against him and several minor offences including a shoplifting spree in Charleston along with members of his family. Hampton is currently serving a one-to-15 year jail term. The state through knights assistant in the Case Charles Smith said that Hampton could very Well have had difficulty in identifying Christian because their relation was a casual a and because Hampton had not seen Christian in a suit and tie As he was attired in at the mar. To hearing. The prosecution which rested his Case in about a Days time was admittedly caught off guard in the trial when Sanders through christians wife Sonia a witness introduced records for the purpose of supporting christians Alibi. One record which was admitted into evidence was a Motel receipt alleged to show that Christian lodged at a Motel near Akron Ohio on Jan. 6, the Day following the Clyborne burglary. Hampton testified that immediately following the burglary he Martin and the late Ira Mathena went to Christian s Home and gave him $5,000, plus other stolen articles. On the following morning Hampton said be and m a r t i n went to christians Bluefield seat cover Center where Martin took his $65,000 share of the Clyborne Money in for the purpose of getting it a busted Christian denied the Allega nations saying that he was in Tazewell delivering an automobile to Mccann motors and visiting his wife s parents on Jan. 5.

Martin was convicted of burglar izing the Clyborne Home and later was sentenced to life in prison under the habitual criminal act. On the witness stand Christian denied that Martin had Ever been in his Home. He said however he had known him since the 1950s. He said he did no to know Hampton. Mathena he said had worked for him about two years. Christian said that after his arrest he asked Martin Why he had accused him of being involved in the crime. Martin he testified told him a i Haven to accused you of perhaps the key question in the trial was Why Hampton implicated Christian. The state contend that the Felon was telling the truth. Smith said a not one reason has come out in the trial As to Why Hampton would lie about Christian. Smith asked the jury in his closing argument who has an a interest in the outcomes of the proceeding. He named Christian his wife her Mother and Hall. Does Hampton he said. A a none was his answer. Sanders said his motive could be to pin the crime on Christian so that he could get out of jail and enjoy the Clyborne Money.
