(AP) The life sentence of 1930s murderess Winnie Ruth Judd has been commuted to time served in prison. A final decision on parole re- sulting from Gov. Jack Williams WINNIE JUDD release near commutation action Tuesday rests with tte state board of pardons and paroles which de- cided by a 2-to-l vote last Feb. 23 Mrs. Judd's sentence should be commuted. Since Mrs. Judd has indicated she wants to rejoin a San Fran- cisco family with whom she was until her capture and re- turn to Arizona in 1969, an agreement on parole board su- pervision between the two states would have to be reached, board Chairman Keith E. Ed- wards said. Mrs. Judd, 66, was convicted in 1932 of the shooting death of Agnes Anne LeRoi on Oct. 17, 1931. Mrs. Judd was not tried for the murder of Hedvig Samuel- son. His dismembered, nude body was found in one blood- soaked trunk and Mrs. LeRci's in another at a Los Angeles rail- road station where they were shipped by Mrs. Judd. Mrs. Judd was sentenced to death Feb. 24, 1932, after a sen- sational trial but shortly before she was to be hanged, a sanity hearing indicated she was men- tally incompetent and in April, 1933, she was committed to the Arizona state hospital in Phoe- nix." Years later, Gov. Howard Pyle commuted her death sen- tence to life imprisonment with possibility of parole. During her years at the state mental hospital, Mrs. Judd es- caped seven times. The latest dissppcarance was Oct. 8, 1962. She stayed hidden until June, 1969, when she was discovered wcrking as a domestic for a San Francisco family. Mrs. Judd was returned to Ar- izona and placed in tha Arizona state prison after she was ruled sane at a second sanity hearing.

Company officials said Tues- day the shorter week is the first of its kind for a large, complex accounting operation in North America. Under the scheme, employees will normally work lour hour days with three days off, including the Saturday-Sunday weekend. The third day off will be on a rotational basis and will provide employees one four-day weekend every five weeks.

Employees, who worked out the plan with management, will continue to work 35 hours weekly but will start at a.m. instead of a.m. as at present. They will finish their day at 5 p.m. Imperial earlier this year began a three-day work week on an experimental basis at its Winnipeg refinery. That plan provided for 12-hour days with three days on, four days off. 3Q kept books well Ordered to pay overdue wages CALGARY (CP) Two city firms were ordered hi provin- cial court to pay overdue wages to the Board of Indus- trial Relations, representing the companies' employees.
