JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Clarince
Wheat, a terminally ill convict, was
carried out of the Mississippi state
prison earlier this year, pardoned by
the governor so he could die at home
with his family,
This week, authorities say, he shot
and killed his wife and son and then
took his own life.
SHERIFF HOWARD Huggins, who
had known Wheat for 40 years, says
releasing the convict was "a dumb
Wheat, 61, suffering from diabetes,
heart disease, and terminal cancer and
barely able to walk, was freed from the
Mississippi State Penitentiary at Par-
chman in January.
On Monday, he pulled the trigger on a
shotgun and killed himself after
shooting his wife and son to death at
Ill. ERA vol
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Chances
are "about zero" that the Equal Rights
Amendment will be called for another
vote in the Illinois House this year, a
chief sponsor of the amendment said
yesterday as ERA supporters reaffir-
med plans to push the issue at the ballot
Three other legislative sponsors and
Eleanor Smeal, president ._of the
National Organization for Women
(NOW), agreed it might be better to
wait until next year - when supporters
hope to have more sympathetic
legislators in the House.
But Rep. James Taylor (D-Chicago),
added: "I'm not saying we're through
at all for this session."
ON WEDNESDAY, the amendment
fell five votes short of the 107 needed to
pass the House. The vote was 102-71,
three fewer votes than the ERA got in
their home near Lexington, officers
. HUGGINS, SHERIFF of Holmes
County, said he had objected to
releasing Wheat, who had served eight
months of a five-year term for shooting
at police officers during a family
disturbance at his home.
"I remember, someone came by here
and asked if he should be let out,"
Huggins said. "My answer was no.
"I still say, if he had been up at Par-
chman like he ought to have been, two
people would have been living."
State Corrections Commissioner
John Watkins said it was routine policy
in Mississippi and many other states to
release terminally ill prisoners.
the last House vote in June 1978. It was
ERA's seventh defeat in the Illinois
House since 1972.
Rep. John Matijevick (D-North
Chicago),,_ said the amendment likely
would be defeated again if sponsors
called for a vote before June 3,
scheduled adjournment date for the
General.Assembly's spring session.
He said it also would probably be
defeated in the fall veto session, when
attendance generally is low. "The
likelihood of calling it before January is
about zero," said Matijevich.
ERA sponsors note that a number of
incumbent House members who op-
posed the amendment were defeated in
the primary last March. As a result,
they expect several new pro-ERA
lawmakers to be elected in the Novem-
ber general election.
