TO:       James E. Seibert, Magistrate
          United States District Court
          Room 433, Federal Building
          Wheeling, West Virginia

FROM:     Paul Andrew, Mitchell, B.A., M.S.
          Counselor at Law

DATE:     November 29, 1996

SUBJECT:  U.S.A. v. Looker et al.

I am  authorized by Mr. Floyd Raymond Looker to inform you of His
intent to  execute and  file His  Plea  in  Abatement  and  Sworn
Statement in  the matter  now before  you.   These pleadings have
been mailed to him at the Northern Regional Jail via Express U.S.
Mail postmarked  today, for executing and filing immediately upon
receipt of same;  they have also been mailed to His Pastor, Butch
Paugh in  Nettie, West  Virginia, and  to His stand-by counsel of
record, Mr.  Stephen D. Herndon at 76 Fifteenth Street, Wheeling,
West Virginia.

Because of  the logistical  difficulties involved  in  delivering
these pleadings to Mr. Looker, getting them signed by Mr. Looker,
and then  getting them filed in the United States District Court,
I respectfully  request, on  His behalf,  that you  postpone  the
arraignment scheduled  for 1:30  p.m. in Courtroom 433 on Monday,
December 2,  1996, until  such time  as these  pleadings  can  be
processed through normal channels.

It is  also Mr. Looker's understanding, and expectation, that His
Plea in  Abatement must  be heard  by a  qualified and  competent
federal judge, and not a magistrate.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Sincerely yours,

/s/ Paul Andrew, Mitchell, B.A., M.S.
