Freeman denied! knowing anything

Wilkinson, son of an American

when he disappeared in Oklahoma.
His body was found in Grand

Mrs. Freeman was convicted of

ALICE, Texas,, March 15. <U-»»—
South Texas political boss George
B. Parr went on trial Monday on
charges of brandishing a pistol,
with the outcome possibly hinging
on the comparative contours of a
gun and a pair of binoculars.
Parr, the “Duke of Duval Coun-
ty," is charged with brandishing
a gun at Manuel Marroquin, part-
time newsman and former tortilla
maker, now prominent in the anti-
Parr Freedom party.
Parr has said he brandished no
pistol, but merely waved a pair of
binoculars while arguing with
Marroquin following a meeting of
the freedom party at San Diego.
The meeting was in Jim Wells
county, Just across the line from

attorney, Ed Lloyd of Alice, asked
him to agree to another postpone

He said Lloyd “told me when
we agreed to a postponement last
month that he would definitely be
ready March 15.”
The alleged pistol-brandishing
occurred eight weeks ago. Marro-
quin said he saw a car parked
near his property, where the open-
air Freedom party meeting was
held. He said he thought the car
was stuck and went over to offer
When he approached, he said,
Parr and an assistant, Juan Bar-
rera, drew pistols and pointed
them at him from within the car.
Marroquin charged that Parr
told him he would kHl him
everyone else who had attended
the meeting. Parr has admitted
swearing at Marroquin, but said
he swore in Spanish. He and Ber-
rera have denied they carried pis-
tols and Parr said Marroquin saw
his binoculars rather than a gun.
Jim Wells authorities filed
charges of illegal pistol possession
against Parr and Barrera.
The incident led to a wide in-
vestigation of activities in Parr’s
realm and a fight between Parr
and the Texas Rangers.
Two days after the incident near
Marroquin’s property, Parr ar-
rived at the Jim Wells county
