PHOENIX (AP) - Amid ten-
sion and fear, this state's most
controversial trial - People
versus John Harvey Adamson-
was beset by security problems
yesterday, which halted its
opening session.
Adamson, a 32-year-old grey-
hound dog breeder, is charged
with the bombing murder of
investigative reporter Don Bol-
les.
HE WAS SCHEDULED to go
on trial yesterday morning. But,
two hours after jury selection
was to begin, Superior Court
Judge Frederic Heineman ab-
ruptly stopped proceedings and
dismissed some 100 prospective
jurors who had been searched
andscreened for admission to
the courtroom.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we've
had a misunderstanding," said
the judge, "and the trial will
not proceed now'."
He told the prospects they
would be assigned to another
case, and, outside court, he de-
clined to say why he had aborted
the trial's opening.
HOWEVER, Maricopa County
Atty. Donald Harris said later
that security was the problem.
"It's my understanding," Har-
ris said in an interview, "that
the judge had been informed
that security was not good at
the courtroom and the sheriff's
department was concerned."
Harris said that security of-
ficials would take any steps'
necessary to protect Adamson's'
safety, but it was not cleart
whether there had been threats
on the defendant's life.
"WE WILL CONVENE later,
and the press and public will
not be admitted to jury selec-
tion," said the judge. He had
announced earlier that jurors
would be selected behind closed
doors.
Defense attorneys, who had
sought a change of venue in
the case, had protested that lo-
cal prejudice against Adamson
would make it difficult to find
unbiased jurors.
Bolles' killing last summer
shocked this Arizona capital
city. The renorter's agonizing
11-day battle for life drew head-
lines locally and nationally.

who specialized in exposing
white collar crime, Bolles had
been summoned to his June 2
rendezvous with death by an
informant promising a big sto-
ry.
The story concerned land
fraud and politicians, and Bolles
went to the meeting with his
mysterious contact at the Clar-
endon Hotel.
The meeting was cancelled by
a phone call in the lobby, and
as Bolles left the hotel parking
lot in his car, a powerful ex-
plosion ripped through the floor
of the auto.
BOLLES' LEGS were shat-
tered and he was thrown onto
the pavement. Witnesses said
later that the mortally wounded
newsman gasped: "John Adam-
son sent me ... Find John Adam-
son."
Police said Bolles also mut-
tered the words, "Emprise, ma-
fia ... find Adamson."
Hours after Bolles' death,
Adamson was booked on a
charge of murder. Authorities
speculated that others might be
involved, but there have been
no further indictments.
An 18-member investigative
team of reporters from across
the country is working on the
story that Bolles was prevented
from finishing - a story of pos-
sible land fraud and corrupt
politics.
The judge has estimated it
would take two days to find
a jury to try Adamson. But
courthouse observers of the
case say it could take much
longer to find 12 people unaf-
fected by the publicity surround-
ing the Bolles slaying.

PARIS (AP) - A French en-
gineering firm said yesterday
that oil-rich Saudi Arabia is
seriously considering a plan to
tow icebergs from the Antarctic
to the Red Sea to provide more
water for the desert kingdom.
The firm said the 5,000-mile
voyage, at a snail's pace of one
nautical mile per hour, could
take from 6 to 12 months and
cost about $80 million.
THE COMPANY, Cicero, lo-
cated in the Paris suburb of
Marly-Le-Roi, said it was con-
tacted about a year ago by,
Saudi officials who wanted a!
fresh approach to their coun-
try's water shortage problems.1
Contract discussions are in the
final stage, Cicero officials said.
Cicero engineers worked out
the plan to use icebergs, which
are salt-free and melt as fresh
water, in coordination with
French polar experts and said
they are confident it is feasi-,

ble. Details were provided by
the firm's commercial director,
Francois de Broglie.
ie said for the trial run, five
ocean-going tugs, each driven
by 20,000 horsepower engines,
would travel to the Antarctic
where special crews would pick
out a suitable iceberg.
THE IDEAL ONE would have
a more - or - less rectangular
shape to prevent tipping, weigh
about 100 million tons, be about
a mile long, 900 yards wide and
750 yards high, one-fortieth of
which would be above water.
De Broglie said after the ice-
berg is selected, experts will
fix an 18-inch thick special plas-
tic cover over the monster, both
to protect it wrom the melting
rays of the sun and the destruc-
tive force of waves and currents.
Special cables will then be rig-
ged between the mothballed ice-
berg and the tugs, and the long
trip will get under way.

But there are still two main-
problems.
THE FIRST ONE is heat. Ice-'
bergs are rarely sighted beyond{
40 degrees latitude and, Cicero's
confidence notwithstanding, 'it is
not known for sure whether the
iceberg will survive the torrid
portion of the long trip.
Problem No. 2 is ocean depth.
Even though the waters off the
Saudi capital of Jidda are 1,800
feet deep and could accommo-!
date the iceberg, the Straits of
Bab al Mandab, connecting the
Gulf of Aden with the Red Sea,
are only 120 feet deep.
Cicero engineers, however,
have thought of a solution to
this obstacle. They plan to slice
the iceberg into smaller sections
with special electrically-heated
cables before entering the
straits
