Jefferson W. Cochran, associate administrator of the FAA’s engi neering and development office, told Air Traffic Control Association delegates the tragic accident that killed 144 persons “is of course going to affect the safety statistics.” But he said the country’s safety rec ord was “second to none.” The San Diego accident, no mat ter what the cause, shows that safety efforts could be better, he said. Quentin S. Taylor, FAA deputy administrator, opened the morning session of the ATCA conference by telling delegates the association faces “some major safety issues that need to be addressed.” Dr. James J. Kramer, associate administrator for the National Aeronautics and Space Administra tion, said NASA is involved in pro grams concerning aviation safety. He said NASA is working on projects that could help improve aircraft operations in poor visibility and those involving human error.

The appeals courts also reversed a felony conviction given James L. Morgan because the indictment against the Bryan man did not spe cifically detail the charges against him. On Oct. 25, 1975, Morgan pleaded guilty to robbing a home and was given a 10-year probated sentence. He was later sentenced to five years in prison for violating probation. The criminal appeals court re versed the decision, saying that the indictment failed to satisfy all the conditions necessary for conviction of a felony theft. In another decision Wednesday, the court refused to remove 37 ar rests from the record of a Fort Worth man currently serving a 20-year sen tence for murder. Paprskar claimed the arrests should be removed since no indict ments followed the arrests and since he was not convicted of a felony in the five years preceding each arrest. The court, however, ruled that it had no jurisdiction to expunge the arrests since there were no criminal penalties attached to the Fort Worth court order denying Paprskar expunction of the arrests.
