ABILENE, Dec. 1.0 (AP) -John Rugh, county attorney, said today Dickinson County will fight a beas corpus action filed to test the validity of the Kansas bone dry law.

An application for such a writ was filed Tuesday with the Supreme court by Bruce Heath, Abi. lene lawyer, on behalf of Richard Manning arrested November 20 on charges of possessing liquor and maintaining a nuisance. A hearing on the case has been set for December 8 at Topeka. "We have no intention of releas. ing the prisoner," Rugh declared.

"The hearing has been set for De. cember 8 and I will appear before the Supreme court at that time to argue the case." Heath alleged Manning is held illegally, since the arrest was mada under the bone dry law. This law, he contended, was invalidated by the repeal vote last month. The case has received state-wide attention as a test of the state'a prohibition law. A court order releasing Manning would have the effect of invalidating the bone law before the state Legislaure na- time to act.
