Harvey said he arrested j. H. Russell brother in Law of the wounded woman and jailed him on an open charge pending comple Tion of his investigation. The Marshall said preliminary investigation showed the two Vic Tims were watching television in the Home of Grady Russell.

John Herbers reports special session on Constitution and liquor this fall shorn governor s effectiveness la getting done what he thinks needed by John herders United press staff correspondent Jackson miss., aug. 3 up a one year timetable for setting into motion the most sweeping changes in the state government Ince the turn of he Century leaked out of the state Capitol this week. Gov. . Coleman was waiting util he could inform legislators by letter before making the announcement but reporters consid ered the news too hot to hold in new. Of the fact that Coleman discussed it with a number of peo in pie and there was no reason for Security. All that remains to be done is setting a Date for a special session t of the legislature probably in november and drafting of Bills to set up a constitutional convention and a local option liquor system. If time remains the history making legislators will try to abolish the quickie marriage Trade and tackle a few other matters. Legislature slow observers of the slow plodding Legislatures of the past find it almost impossible to believe that All this could happen in a six week session. The regular 1958 legislature would then be free to turn legislation financing the government and possibly rebuilding its tax Structure. A legislative committee appointed by the special session could Start to work on a proposed Constitution to submit to the Conven Tion which would Convene about August of 1958. Both opponents and friends of the administration agreed hat the layout of the plan Speaks for the amazing effectiveness of Coleman in getting what he wants. Last Spring Coleman was talk ing about going on television to sell the idea of re writing the Constitution to the Public. He also was planning to let the legislature dispose of the reapportionment dilemma rather than the Conven Tion. Public opposed recently the governor announced that Public opposition the convention had and indicated there would be no need for stumping. Apparently legislative opposition started crumbling too because Coleman is now willing to risk getting a convention Bill the legislature without providing first for. Reapportionment. His recent stand for local option liquor sales probably helped with some old time wets in the Legisla Ture and most members like the idea of having a committee of to their own working been Constitution delegates-rid-the1 convention would be elected independently the legislature and will not be. Bound by anything in legislature says. But a lot of leg. I slaters will be delegates and High Coleman already has announced he will be a candidate. The opposition group to the convention which organized last Spring has not been heard since. At least on member from the Delta is now reported in favor of a new Constitution.
