The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD Wednesday, January 9, 1974 Alleged stock manipulation Hughes won't appear for Las Vegas court hearing By BOB THOMAS LOS ANGELES (AP) Howard Hughes has a date to appear in a Las Vegas court Friday, but no Nevada gambler would likely give odds that he will make it. The billionaire recluse himself indicated hs no-show inclination last week. His press spokesman issued a statement here denying Hughes is guilty in an alleged stock manipulation for which he and four others were in- dicted Dec. 27. Said the spokesman: "Mr. Hughes is guilty of nothing more than making it possible for one of his com- panies to save an airline from bankruptcy and make it over into a successful, vigorous, dependable service to the public." The justice department charged that Hughes "by handwritten and verbal com- munications, authorized and directed the defendants Chester Davis and Robert Maheu to unlawfully manipulate the market price of Airwest Inc. common stock." Davis is chief counsel for Hughes' Summa Corp. and Maheu was head of Hughes' Nevada operations until fired in 1970. They and Hughes, along with two one-time ma- jor stockholders in the regional airline, were charged with conspiring to depress the Airwest stock before Hughes bought the company in 1960. KEEPS HIDDEN Hughes, 68, hasn't appeared in public for 17 years, and there is no reason to believe he will shatter his privacy to answer the charges Friday, especially since he now lives in Freeport, the Bahamas. The United States-Bahamas Extradition Treaty applies mostly to major crimes. "Howard will not his long-time aide, Noah Dietrich, said flatly. "He can't appear. The minute he shows himself in public he will be subject to subpoenas on a variety of law suits, including my own." Dietrich, who left Hughes in 1957 after 32 years as top aide, has a libel suit pending against the billionaire. Hughes has gone to great lengths to avoid appearing in public. He has settled law suits worth millions of dollars rather than show himself in court. In November, 1970, Hughes slipped out of the Desert Inn in Las Vegas, his residence for four years. He flew by private jet to the Bahamas, where he stayed until March, 1972. He had left Nevada with his holdings in disarray, and Maheu was soon fired. A flurry of suits resulted. Hughes left the Bahamas as immigration officials were looking for him. A chartered jet took him to Managua, Nicaragua, where he occupied another hotel floor until he flew off briefly to Vancouver. He returned to Managua to avoid paying Canadian income taxes. The Nicaragua earthquake last Christmas dislodged him again. His next stop was a London penthouse. His return to the Bahamas last month was believed motivated by the islands' more favorable ex- tradition treaty. MOST VISIT U.S. The majority of Canadians who travel abroad visit the United States.
