Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 14, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Hypnotist Needed Because    IRA    Denies    Planning Incite Bloodbath Conner Unable To Recall I he reason cited foe a hypnotic examination of one of the two men accused of murdering two Cedar Rapids teenagers is that tile defendant is unable to recall in detail conversations and activities relevant to his defense. The hypnotic examination was ordered in Linn district court friday for Atwell Junior Conner, 29, of near Bertram. Examination of court records Monday showed that the defense application for the examination was based on Conner’s inability to recall details “of recent months which are relevant to his defense.” ‘Time, Shock’ The application stated that this inability was the result of passage of time, shock, anxiety or other factors. It alleges that a detailed account from the defendant of conversations and activities in recent months is necessary to prepare for cross-examination of state witnesses and to have access to all possible evidentiary leads. The application states that Conner has consented to the examination in an attempt to induce recall. Authorize $600 The hypnotist, Henry Arons, has agreed to come to Cedar Rapids from New Jersey at a cost less than his normal fee, according to the application. It estimates expenses at $200 for round trip from Newark, $150 a day for two days of the examination and $60 for food and lodging. Up to $600 has been authorized for the examination. It states that Arons has been used by law enforcement agencies as well as defense counsel in criminal investigations throughout the United States. Background lie is editor of Hypnosis Quarterly, director of the Ethical Hypnosis Center, Irvington, N. J., and founder and past executive secretary of the Assn. To Advance Ethical Hypnosis. The examination is to take place this month in the county jail. Results of the examination are to remain privileged infor- Means Arrested At Sioux Falls SIOUX FALLS, SD.

Means was arraigned in Sioux Falls municipal court on charges of injury to a public building and riot. He was in the county courthouse April JO when a fight erupted between Indian demonstrators and law authori-j ties.

Dole, (R-Kan ), who contended the present nationwide limit of 55 m p h. imposes a hardship on truckers and on residents I of rural areas. Iowa Democrats Harold Hughes and Dick Clark split on the amendment. Hughes voted for the increase, while Clark opposed it. Senator Randolph (D-W. Va.) said the savings in fuel and lives that he attributed to the 55-mph. limit “far outweigh any conceivable benefits that would accrue from a 60-m.p.h. limit.” Allowing the states to raise the maximum speed “would be another signal to the American people that we no longer consider serious energy conservation an important matter, “Randolph said. “Even though the President may have declared the energy crisis at an end, the U.S. is far from resolving its fuel-sup-ply problems,” he declared. the graduates and confer degrees, and Patricia Burch, Vinton, who will receive a BA degree in anthropology, will give the student charge.
