A vote could come late Monday or

A senior Israeli defense official,
however, said the government

way to gain acceptance of the plan
would be for Shultz to persuade King

accuses the governor of trying to

Mecham contended he did not intend

"Ignorance of the law is no
defense," Eckstein told senators.
The prosecutor accused Mecham
of making a number of statements
