Trial of Edd Clark, 56, a minister in the Church of American Science, yesterday was reset for Jan. 3 by Superior Judge Fred J. Hyder.

Clark, who resides at 1811 N. First Ave., was scheduled to go on trial yesterday on a charge of practicing medicine without a license.

Harry A. Stewart Jr., attorney for Clark, advised Judge Hyder he had been ill several weeks and had been unable to properly prepare his client's defense.

Charles C. Stidham, chief deputy criminal county attorney, did not oppose the defense motion.

Clark was taken into custody in September after a secretary in the county attorney's office and a policewoman allegedly paid him $55 for treatments.
