Longest death row resident wins battle TRENTON, N.J. (AP) Au- thor Edgar H. Smith, the U.S.'s longest death row resident, has been granted a new hearing Jan. 18 in his 13-year-old battle ,p overturn his murder convic- tion, it was learned today. U.S. Distri-ct Court Judge George H. Barlow will preside at a hearing during which Smith and his lawyers will present what they term "new evidence" in an attempt to overturn a con- fession Smith gave to police shortly after his arrest. Unlike Smith's previous ap- peals, this hearing will require appearances by some of the wit- nesses who figured in the case over a decade ago. Earlier ap- peals have been decided on the basis of transcripts of Smith's original trial. Smith was sentenced to death June 4, 1957, after a jury con- victed him of the murder of a 15-year-old school girl Victoria ZielinsK. She was murdered March 4, 1957, in a deserted sand pit. The murder, his trial and con- viction were the subjects of Smith's book, Brief Against Death. Smith contends lie was brow- beaten into a confession by po- lice through incessant question- ing- NEW COIN HISTORY MEDFORD, Mass.

"Anytime there is a price war you look for places to save said Mr. Weinstcin. "That's one reason for the lay- offs. And this time of year there's always somewhat of a layoff." Mr. Weinsteui said the timing of the layoff was not affected by an Ontario government an- nouncement that new restric- tions on mass layoffs will bo- come effective Friday. "These layoffs were planned some weeks he said. "I've checked "with our personnel de- partment and they knew nothing about this when the decision was made."

H.EG1NA (CP) A jiollutioi lawsuit launched by the Mani- toba government has indirectly forced the closure of two Sas- katchewan chemical plants and is threatening the operation of a pulp mill. Intcrprovincial Co-Operatives Ltd. closed its chemical plant two miles north of Saskatoon Monday, saying it is unable to continue paying its bills because the Manitoba lawsuit is hinder- ing its ability to obtain credit. Manitoba is seeking million damages from Interprovincial, claiming mercury from the Sas- katoon plant polluted Manitoba waters through the South Sas- katchewan River system. The International closure also shut down Armour Industrial Chemicals Ltd. in Saskatoon and has created a problem at the Prince Albert pulp mill which it supplies with bleaching chemicals. Saskatchewan Treasurer D. G. Steuart. said Tuesday that Premier Boss Thatcher had twice asked the Manitoba gov- ernment to withdraw its suit, but Premier Ed Schreyer, after meeting with the Manitoba cabi- net, refused. The premier defended Mani- toba's actions in seeking dam- ages since the provincial, fishing industry suffered when lakes had to be closed due to mercury pollution. "It's only right we try to re- cover part of the money lost. We must take this through the courts so we can have adjudica- tions to where financial respon- sibility Mr. Schreyer said. ASKED BY TELEGRAM Mr. Steuart said in an inter- view that the first request was made during the prairie eco- nomic council conference in early December in Winnipeg and the second by telegram. George Kirkwood, plant man- ager for Armour, said his plant depends on Interprovincial to supply steam, water and hydro- gen. Mr. Kirkwood said Armour, which normally employs 23 per- sons, has laid off ail but :j maintenance staff "until we find out what has happened." Inter- provincial employed 40 persons. He said he had believed that Federated Co-Operatives Ltd. lad agree lo take over the op- eration of Interprovincial and to supply some additional financ- ing but "now was backing out" Because of the Manitoba law- suit. Premier Thatcher said the In- tel-provincial plant owes Hie Saskatchewan Economic Devel- opment Corp. (SEDCO) more than million. Vcrn Bodcnhcimer, manager at the Prince Albert mill, said the mill will probably reduce operations next week and produce a limited amount of un- bleached pulp until its source of chlorine and caustic soda is re- stored. He said he hopes no employ- ees u'iii be laid off. In Winnipeg, Premier Schreyer denied that the Mani- toba lawsuit is responsible for the closing of the plant. He said the Saskatoon plant had been in financial difficulty before Manitoba filed the suit. was looking for an excuse and selected the lawsuit.
