Prof to settle
By GEORGEA KOVANIS
The drama surrounding the estate of
the late billionaire Howard Hughes sur-
faced again Tuesday at an informal
hearing before University Law Prof.
The conflict is between two states,
California and Texas, which are bat-
tling over the rights to collect taxes on
Hughes' $1.1 billion estate.
BOTH SIDES claim Hughes' legal
residence was in their own state. The
state declared to be Hughes' legal
residence will collect all of the tax
McCree, a former U.S. solicitor
general and federal judge, was appoin-
ted by the U.S. Supreme Court as a
special magistrate to hear the case.
California's attorneys argue that
their state should get the tax money
because Hughes, who died in 1976, spent
40 years of his life there and owned a
movie studio in California.
HUGHES WAS born in Texas and was
registered to vote there, which Texas
officials argue make the state his legal
place of residence. He also filed his tax
returns as a non-resident when he lived
Preparing the case has not been easy,
said Marla Miller, one of the Califor-
nia's attorneys. She and other workers
have spent more than a thousand hours
going through hundreds of personal
possessions and papers stored in Las
Vegas and Los Angeles.
Everything was saved, Miller said,
including Hughes' baby cup and actress
Jane Russell's skimpy costume from
the movie, The Outlaw. "Nothing was
thrown out, all the way back from his
early life," Miller said.
McCree called for a more formal pre-
trial hearing in September. The trial is
expected to take place in Denver next

Preparation for College: What Students
Need to Know and Be Able To Do."
THE COLLEGE Hoard is an
association of 2,500 schools, colleges,
and other groups that sponsors the most
widely used college entrance exam, the
Scholastic Aptitude Test.
The report, part of a 10-year project
begun by the College Board in 1980 to
strengthen high school education, laid
special emphasis on the escalating im-
portance of the computer for both lear-
ning and working.
The report also underlined the impor-
tance of the arts, saying visual arts,
theater, music and dance can
"challenge and extend the human ex-
The study was released just two
weeks after a scathing report card on
