3 Pitts-Lee Murder Case
County to pay defense expenses
for the pair.
Defense attorneys Irwin Block,
Dade. Public Defender Phillip
Hubbart and Maurice Rosen de-'
veloped the' contention that the
two defendants could not receive
a fair and impartial trial in Gulf
or surrounding counties .because
of stories published in The Star
and the Panama City News-Her-
ald pointing to the guilt of the
defendants in past trials and
hearings. Hubbart said "these
stories have been published
month after month and year af-
,ter year molding a public opin-
ion of guilt".
The state, represented by
States' Attorney J. Frank Ad-
ams and assistants Leo Jones
and Russ Bower, attempted to
show that a jury of 12 impartial
people could be found in Gulf
County : to conduct the trial.
Jone, who did most:of the talk-
ing for the state claimed "fail-
pre to produce 12'fair people to,
serve on a jury is the only just
cause for a change of venue".
"Feel" Fair Verdict Is
The defense brought five wit-
nesses to the stand, three of,
which "felt" Pitts a9d Lee could
not receive a fair and impartial
verdict in Gulf County. .
Assistant states attorney, Leo
Jones countered the claim by
pointing, to the fact that the twoo
could get as fair a trial in Gulf
County as anywhere in Florida.
Jones introduced testimony to
the fact that only about 21,000
people were subscribers to the
two papers mentioned, whereas
the Miami Herald had been pub-
lishing the exact opposite view-
point South of Tallahassee and
Jacksonville; "So where are you
going to find an area which
hasn't been influenced "by news
David Hellman, a Miami pri-
vate investigator was introduced
as a witness by the defense and
testified that he had been ar-
rested by Wewahitchka Police
Chief J. H. Glass While making
a. survey of the feelings of the
people in Gulf County. Hellman
said he carried two prepared
affidavits with him for people
to sign; one stating the signer
didn't believe Pitts and Lee
could get a fair trial in Gulf
County and a second stating the
signer believed the pair was guil-
ty as charged. The defense law-
yers entered 107 of these signed
affidavits as evidence to their
claim that a fair, trial could, not
be had in Gulf.
Attorney Jones in his cross ex-
amination of Hellman heard him
say he had no prepared petitions
i, forfpeople to sign who.may think
a f ir trial was possible.
Hellman also testified that af-
ter his 'arrest, Chief Deputy H.
T. Dean had told him, "You want
'to" be careful bothering people
like you have been, you could
get shot", or words to that ef-
fect. Dean -testified .his office
had numerous calls that Hellman
was "bothering" people with his
visits and questions and that it
was standard procedure for his
office to 'investigate any such
Publication of Confessions
In his summation before the
Judge Friday evening, Block
made the point that the law re-
quires a change of venue when
a confession by defendants is
featured in a newspaper. Jones
countered in his summation that
the law applies only when the
confession is published before
grand jury arraignment or trial.
"This wasn't the case in this in-
stance", Jones said.
In their request for a sup-
pression of the guilty plea, the
defense used the arguments of
Block and Hubbart, who argued
points of law on every motion
while Block questioned witnes-
ses, to try and prove that the
confessions were not voluntary.
The defense called as a wit-
ness Bruce Potts of Atlanta who
was the Army CID man sent here
in 1963 when the crime was com-
mitted. 'Potts was sent here be-
cause Pitts was in the Army at
the time. Potts testified that the
two were jailed on August 3,
1963 but that he was not allowed
to see them until August 8. The
two were in Bay County jail at
A second witness, Dorothy
Martin who gave her address as
Jamaica, New York testified she
had seen the pair in the Bay
County jail and that Pitts' face
was swollen and his eye black.
Under cross examination she
couldn't say how Pitts' face had
been injured. Miss Martin had
been arrested for questioning at
the time of the murder.
Jury Selection Unfair
The defense sought to have
'the charges dropped basing their
argument on their claim that the
Grand Jury who indicted had
been illegally selected and that
Negroes had been, kept off the
jury. They pointed out that only
four Negroes were in the jury
box at the time along with 265

In the request for expenses,
defense witness asked for only
travel pay for their witnesses.
States Attorney Jones pointed
out that the law has rules and
regulations for defendants to fol.
low in order for the county to
pay expenses. "These defendants
have private attorneys and do
not qualify under the rules for
their expenses to be paid".

Honor The Verb
Labor Day, the summer season's last important holi-
day, is almost here. As with all three-day holidays, one
primary consideration will be sheer survival in the press of
traffic and other hazards of congestion.
There is another consideration too of which we should
all be acutely conscious. As individuals, we can each
contribute mightily to pollution control during a period
when lakes, forests, streams and parks are swamped with
visitors. A leaflet, issued by Enterprise Publications of
Chicago, offers the following questionnaire for those who
are sincerely concerned about pollution. It asks, among
other things: When did I last throw an empty can, bottle,
cigarette butt, or paper wrapper out of the car window?
When. did I last throw a cigarette pack, gum or candy
wrapper on the street or the floor of a public building?
When did I last leave a picnic table without cleaning up?
.When did I last leave a camp site without picking up all
the refuse? When did I last leave a public or private
beach without picking up paper, glass, or other sharp
objects? When did I last-when no one was looking-
drop off garbage or junk by the side of the road-hop-
ing I wouldn't be caught?
How these questions can be answered by those re-
turning from the long Labor Day week end will be a
pretty accurate gauge, of public interest in pollution con-
That's one side of Labor Day, but there is another
facet of this end of the summer holiday that of honor-
ing labor for their part in making our nation the most
affluent in the world today. While at this particular
time we are recognizing labor, we cannot forget that
industry played its part by providing the jobs which labor
enjoys and reaps the largest paycheck ever paid to a man
for his abilities.
Another unique situation we find ourself in is that
in many cases in the United States, labor and industry are
one. Many laboring people own stocks in the corporations
which turn out the products for the good life in the United
States. In many instances labor is working for other
laboring people by virtue of the fact that the money they
have invested has built the huge corporations and made
, them a source of even more jobs.
No nation in the world, with the exception of maybe
Japan has as energetic a people as does the United States.
This energy is reflected in the super highways we travel,
the fine homes we live in, the many pleasure-filling gad-
gets we use every day to prepare our meals, furnish our
entertainment and occupy our liesure hours.
Labor is what has made this country great. Con-
tinued labor on the part of our citizens will, keep it great.
Labor day was originally designated to honor the or-
ganized labor of our land, but we had rather think of it
as the inspired labor, using the word as a verb, as due
the inspiration of this special recognition.
Holding The Line
The governments of Gulf County,/are due the con-
gratulations and thanks of our tax payers for their ef-
forts in holding the line on taxes and public spending this
coming tax year. From the city hall to the schools and
on to the ebunty, some economies were put into effect to
.either hold the line or reduce, taxation. Maybe this is a
beginning of even further relief of a citizenry which is
becoming 'excessively burdened by taxes from all levels.
At the last County Commission meeting, Commis-
sioner Leo Kennedy observed, that the coming tax year
is the first year since he has been on the board-some
18 years-that the millage rate has been under 10 mills.
While Kennedy's observance is good news to tax payers,
the great relief which shows .on the surface isn't all dol-
lars and c6nts. This is also the first year in history that
a mill in Gulf County has brought in $50,000. This
creeping up of valuations, plus a high millage rate is what
was breaking-.the tax-payers back. .
Many desirable public expenditures were deleted from
all budgets in Gulf County this year. This is to the cre-
* dit of the county, school and city commissioners who
Too Late To Classify

When I crossed the Atlantic on
the Queen Elizabeth a number of '
years ago, I recall the trip as
one of the most enjoyable ex-
periences of my life. I recall
what a majestic ship she was,
our comfortable accommodations,
the service and splendid meals.
At that time the old queen
was in her glory and what a
queen she was. Now she has
been put out to pasture and a
new queen reigns, the Queen

and the Caribbean.

The best show of the week was playing at the Court-
iss house this week when Assistant States Attorney Leo
ie. Jones and Miami attorney Irwin Block tested each other's
ng knowledge of the law in arguing the five petitions filed.
im by Block in the case of Freddie Pitts and Wilbert Lee
,e- who will be tried for murder in the near future.
a The fact of two men facing trial for their lives was
op heavy drama, it's true, but. the arguments on the ques-
in tions to be decided held the rapt attention of everyone in
ur the crowded courtroom for two long days.
by If a TV network had cameras in the Gulf County
to courtroom on Friday and Saturday, they would have pro-
duced the best trial program you have seen on television
est in quite some time. Both men, their associates and Judge
iri- John Crews kept the drama moving and there just wasn't
of any "dead spots" during the entire proceedings.
nd- It was fascinating to watch attorneys and the judge#
of- weigh every word they said in order to produce a desired&'
point or effect, without talking themselves into a box
ity from, which they couldn't come out of.
m, Block and Jones were pretty evenly matched when
rx- it came to recall of the law. Both had done their home-
ive work well in preparing for the two days. When it comes
riP down to the actual trial, the drama should equal any
contrived story designed to hold one in suspense by the
for best of playwrights.
gh In watching courtroom productions on television, it
has always fascinated me how the attorneys can get the
answer, they want from a witness, even though the wit-
ness doesn't want to answer. I have always put this
"ability" to the playwrights who write the script. But,
after being on the witness stand Friday, I find that one
has to stop and think after being asked a question by a
competent attorney, in order to answer the question in
the manner which will give your version of the answer
and not the lawyer's desired version.
ces' The defense, attorneys Block, Dade County Public
am, Defender Phil Hubbart and attorney Maurice Rosen spent
er. the two days trying to prove that the defendants, Pitts
and Lee, could not get a fair an impartial trial in Gulf
aeen County, due to the fact that The Star and the Pananma
ig. City News-Herald had carried stories almost entirely al-
luding to the guilt of the pair. .-The three said. these
hied stories have served to convince everyone in Gulf and Bay
eas, of the guilt of Pitts and Lee.
er. True, the two newspapers published stories of the
proceedings as they happened, which did .point to the guilt
ice, of the pair. We contend, however, that the guilt aspect
and was brought about by the evidence produced. We firmly
believe that should defense!attorneys find themselves able
to prove that the pair are not guilty, they will be released
if by a Gulf County jury.
ald Gulf County people may not bd a lot of things, but
a we have found them to be honorable and fair. We firmly
ca- believe they would be fair in this instance, also, and ren-
der a verdict based exclusively on the evidence.

"Beginning September 1, the

lists to have headlights turned
on at all times while in opera-
tion during daylight hours," said
Patrol Director, Colonel Reid
A study made by the Patrol re-
vealed that motorcycle accidents
increased 36 per cent in 1970
over the previous year.
Clifton feels that the new law
is for the benefit of motorcycle
riders by making them more vi-
sible to other drivers. Motor-
cycles are more difficult to see
than larger vehicles and. their
speed and distance are often
hard to judge. A
Clifton concluded by urging
motorcyclists "to comply with
the law in order to be seem and
not hurt. A rider has little
chance of escaping injury when
struck by an automobile."
