Kingsport Times (Newspaper) - August 30, 1972, Kingsport, Tennessee eorgia, South Carolina Choose Two Newcomers By IMted Frees Intenaltottl A newcomer to statewide politics defeated Sen. David .Gatnbrell in Georgia's Democratic primary Tuesday and another relative unknown won the right to challenge Sen. Strom Thurmond in South Carolina. Gwibrdl, who was appointed by Gov. Jimmy Carter to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Sen. Richard Russell, D-Ga., 19 months ago, was unseated by State Rep. Sam Nunn, a 33-year- old legislator who had received an llth-hour endorsement from U. Gov. Lester Maddox. Nunn faces formidable opposition in November from Republican Congressman Fletcher Thompson, who won the OOP's Senate nomination without opposition earlier this month. In South Carolina, State Sen. Eugene N. Zeigler, conducting a personal appearance campaign "without the use of the mass beat attorney John Bolt Culbertson, a veteran liberal from Greenville. Zeigler, 51, a six-year legislator who made his first statewide race, said he would begin his campaign immediately against Thurmond, a 69-year-old Republican whom Culbertson had said it would take a "miracle" to beat. With almost of South Carolina's precincts reported, Zeigler had a lead over Culbertson of votes to Nunn's margin over Gambrell, with 93 per cent of Georgia's precincts counted, was to In congressional battles in the primaries, veteran Rep. John L. McMillan, D-S.C., seeking his 18th term, led a three-man race but apparently was forced into a runoff despite a lead over his nearest challenger, attorney Bill R. Craig. In South Carolina's First District, Rep. Mendel Davis, 29, godson and former aide to the late Rep. L. Mendel Rivers, easily won Democratic renomination over two opponents, including another former Rivers' aide, Ben Frasier Jr., a black who disappeared Saturday after claiming he had received threats. Frasier called authorities from a Lumberton, N. C., motel early today to report that he had been kidnaped and robbed but was not harmed. Travelling Gunman Kills 6, Wounds 3 NAKUSP, B. C. gunman killed six persons, including a vacationing elderly couple' and a secluded fisherman, and wounded three others in a shooting spree that stretched over 100 miles of the rugged British Columbia wilderness. Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) were holding a suspect in the shootings, but no formal charges had been filed by late Tuesday. The suspect, reported to be about 40 years old, was not identified. RCMP released only sketchy details of the shootings, noting that "everything is still being correlated." Police said the drama began Monday in Oliver, B. C., near the U.S.-Canadian border, where the gunman com- mandeered a Landrover from a 16-year-old boy and his 65- year-old companion, who were going to tend orchard sprinklers. The pair were believed to have been the sniper's first victims. The killer then apparently drove more than 60 miles north to Damfino Creek in the western Monashee Mountains, where he chatted briefly with two vacationing couples. Police said the gunman left the four, but later returned and ordered them into a camper truck. A fusillade of rifle shots followed. Lester Clark, 56; Allan Wilson, 62, and his wife, Mildred, 55, all of Penticton, were wounded. They were reported in fair to good con- dition in hospital in Trail, B. C. Clark's wife was dead on arrival at the hospital. RCMP said the killer may have reloaded his rifle as many as three times before he left the four for dead and fled north into the Christian Valley, the vehicle was aban- doned. Police said the gunman then confronted an elderly couple, murdered them and took their vehicle for transportation north. A 24-year old Nakusp man, fishing near Burton, 30 miles north of Edgewood and more than 100 miles from the first killing, was apparently the next victim, police said. Amendment battle begins NASHVILLE (UPI) Southern Railway System began Tuesday what is expected to be a long court battle over the constitutionality of Question Three. The carrier charged that the question, a constitutional amendment classifying property for tax purposes, was un- constitutional and asked Chancery Court here to declare it null and void. The amendment was overwhelmingly approved by Tennessee voters Aug. 3. It classifies property according to use. Southern said it would suffer "irreparable" damage if the amendment is let stand. It said its taxes would jump a half million dollars a year. Southern had sought to have the amendment voided prior to the election but the courts ruled the suit was premature. The amendment is scheduled to go into effect Jan. 1. Innocent plea in shooting CENTERVILLE (UPI) A teenager pleaded innocent here Tuesday to charges that he killed his mother after an argument over money for a motorcycle. Keith Anglin, 15, was accused of shooting and beating Mrs. James Anglin at her home Feb. 17. Defense attorney Luke Harvey entered innocent pleas on all counts for his client before a packed courtroom. The prosecution presented in evidence a .22 caliber automatic pistol, a .38 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver, a telephone ripped from the hall of Mrs. Anglin's home and wood fragments found scattered over the living room. Committee will conduct probe MEMPHIS (UPI) A Memphis city council police committee will investigate charges of corruption in the city police depart- ment and report its findings to the council. This was the resolution which the council adopted yesterday by a vote of 11-1. The council had failed to reach an agreement in two previous attempts. The committee will be made up of three councilmen. A former FBI agent chosen by Mayor Wyeth Chandler pulled out of the investigation of the department's internal security division Monday. He said the reason was uncertainty about what courie other investigators might take.

Ritchey kept 81 dogs in kennels near Deerfield Beach, Fla., and when she died Oct. 14, 1968, she named the dogs heirs to her million estate. After almost three years of court battles, the dogs were allowed to inherit the million. The dogs range from pedigree show winners to mutts, found in dog pounds. Junior Totes A Gun To Insure 6His Side' CUMMING, Ga. (UPI) Television star Junior Sam- ples, the country comic of "Hee strolled into the local newspaper office Monday with a gun strapped to his side to make sure the story of his arrest was accurately reported, authorities reported Tuesday. Authorities said Samples was arrested over the weekend with his son and manager on drunk charges, but the celebrity contended he had been caught up in a political machine. Samples said he went to the county jail Friday night to bail out his manager, James Gibson, who was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. Sheriff's Deputy Norman Peppers said Samples arrived at the jail "better'n half plastered and runnin' at the mouth." The actor was jailed for disturbing the peace and for permitting a person to operate a vehicle while under the in- fluence of alcohol. His son, Lamar Samples, was booked on a public drunk charge. News editor Johnny Solesbee of the Forsyth County News said Samples came into the office Monday to make sure the story of the incident was correctly printed. Solesbee said he and four other employes witnessed the event as Samples demanded to talk to editor Tony Maddox, who wasn't present. JUNIOR SAMPLES pistol packing "Tell him (editor Maddox) he better get the whole story and it better be the Solesbee said Samples told the group with a pistol and holster belt full of ammunition on his hip. "I'll beat the hell out of him if he don't get the truth." Solesbee said the actor who lives in Cumming claimed he was caught in a political trap because he had supported a candidate for sheriff who lost to the in- cumbent several weeks ago. Solesbee said he thought the gun and ammo belt were "more or less for show." Deputy Peppers said, "We were glad to get rid of them. He was beating on the bars and stuff like that. It must have hurt his pride to be arrested." Pepper claimed Samples came in Friday night "cussing and billigerent" and waiving a wad of money, claiming it was "I've got enough here to buy this jail and have it towed Peppers said Samples told him. 99 Fliers Missing In Red Thrust SAIGON American fliers are missing in action after missiles, MIGs or unexplained problems brought down their planes over North Vietnam in the five months of the Communist offensive, unof- ficial figures showed today. The most recent additions were announced in a delayed report today by the U.S. Com- mand, which said three of four crewmen shot down last weekend are missing. The command said on Aug. 17 that 82 fliers were missing over the North as of that date. Seventeen more have been listed on the missing rolls since that date in the downing of 10 planes during that time, records show. The command says 67 U.S. aircraft have been shot down by MIGs over North Vietnam during the entire war, and surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) have brought down another 127 American warplanes. An undetermined number of other planes have crashed because of undetermined problems after raids on the North. American jets have accounted for 160 North Vietnamese MIGs in sky battles while MIGs have shot down 67 U.S. planes. In addition, a Soviet-made AN2 Colt biplane was shot down early in the war.

Gallenkamp THE FAMILY SHOE STORES KINGSPORT MALL E. STONE DR. EASTMAN RD. CHICAGO early today killed two of three men who abducted five women hostages at gunpoint in a robbery at a North Side restaurant. The hostages were rescued unharmed. Dead were Michael Jones, 17, and Michael Larry Griggs, 18, both of Chicago. The third man was arrested and identified as Louis Tarver, 21, Chicago. A police spokesman said the hostages, who ranged in ages from 17 to 46, were "very thankful, very happy to be alive." In the gun battle that culminated the hectic chase following the robbery and abduction, one policeman was wounded slightly in the arm. Police squad cars and helicopters cautiously gave chase to the car the offenders demanded after robbing Kiyo's Japanese restaurant and terrorizing its patrons. Police had broken the lenses of the car's tail lights to aid in spotting the vehicle in the chase that followed. Despite repeated radio pleas for no shooting by Deputy Police Superintendant Walter Vallee, the highest ranking police officer on Chicago streets at the midnight hour, gunfire broke out between the offenders and police at a South Side location about seven miles from the restaurant. Police were able to rescue the hostages in the shooting melee which ensued, as leaking gas around the abductors' automobile was ignited and the car burst into flames. The episode began shortly before midnight Tuesday when the three men entered the restaurant. They had been there an hour earlier, one of them asking to use the bathroom. The waitress who refused that request was approached when the gunmen returned. She, eight other restaurant employes and eight customers were held at gunpoint for about an hour while the men robbed them and stole the day's the cash register. One of the gunmen shouted out to the ap- proximately 100 policemen who had been brought to the scene after a restaurant em- ploye was able to sneak out and alert police. The gunman demanded an unmarked car, a police radio and the removal of police from the he would shoot the hostages. While Vallee communicated by buU-horn with the offenders, a gunmen placed his weapon to the head of one of the women and instructed her to do the talking. Several times during the course of the bargaining, she screamed in terror. Police eventually provided a car, belonging to one of the restaurant employes, but no radio. A young woman then crawled to the doorway inside the restaurant, peered out at the auto and crawled back in apparently at the request of the gunmen. The men and hostages finally got into the car. One suspect was armed with a sawed-off shotgun, the two other had handguns. There was a moment of particular tension when one police officer, apparently unaware of the city-wide alert on the car, attempted to apprehend it for a speeding violation. The gunmen stopped once for gas during a period of the chase in which they had eluded police. The attendant who filled their car later said he saw no guns in the car, which sped off without its driver paying for the gas. Names and ages of the offenders and hostages were not immediately available. Wallace Winding Up Hospital Stay BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (UPI) Gov. George C. Wallace plans to leave a Birmingham hospital for good either today or Thursday and probably will attend at least part of the Southern Governors' Con- ference beginning this weekend at Hilton Head, S.C. Billy Joe Camp, Wallace's press secretary, said the day of release would "depend on the decision of his doctors about the abdominal incision from the last operation." Wallace has undergone surgery twice for abdominal abscesses since coming to Spain Rehabilitation Center six weeks ago for physical therapy. He has left only for occasional weekend visits with his family. Wallace remains paralyzed from the waist down as a result of the May 15 shooting in Maryland. Camp said the therapy program would continue at the executive mansion in Mon- tgomery, where the Governor will go after his release. He added that Dr. George Traugh, Wallace's therapy specialist, "is pleased with the Governor's progress. He thinks the return home will be beneficial to his rehabilitation." Camp said Wallace planned to go to the governors' con- ference because he wanted "to see the other governors and talk with them about the issues and problems that we have in common in our area."
