Casella, who was related to a number of Santa Cruzans, died in New York Wednesday. He had been a mechanical engineer with the Morey Machinery company in Astoria, N.Y., for 20 years, and for many years was employed by the makers of Ever-eady Batteries. He invented a carton folding machine which still is in use throughout the United States and during World War II worked for the government on ordnance projects. He was born in San Jose and attended school in San Francisco. He was the son of John and Louisa Casella, pioneer settlers in S;inta Clara county, and is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Clementina Costella and Mrs. Theresa Uorgazzi, both of Santa Cruz; four nieces, Mrs. G. B. Lofberg and Mrs. E. D. Fitzsimons, both of Santa Cruz, and T. V. McGowan and Mrs. William Gallagher, both of San Jose; and a nephew, John E. Costella of Walnut Creek.

Just exactly how it was all straightened out was not clear even yet, but the three major networks promptly scheduled the dramatic face-to-face wrangle on their 11 p.m. news shows. NBC will also show the tape in color Sunday at 6 p.m. i;sr. They called wire services to announce they had received a go-ahrad. The video tape recording arrived here by plane Saturday morning and was scheduled to have been shown at various times Saturday and Sunday by the ABC, CBS and NBC television networks. But before they could get on the air with it, they began to en counter an exasperating and puzzling series of circumstances. First came word from the state department that American showing of the 16-minute color recording was to be held up until a copy could be made and sent to Moscow for simultaneous transmission over Soviet TV. That would require at least a day or so. Then began a rash of telephone calls to Washington and Moscow to ascertain who issued the order and what prompted it. The results led to even further consternation. At first, the networks got the idea that Nixon himself was the originator and that the delay stemmed from an arrangement with Khrushchev. Then the networks got through to Nixon and his aides, who ex pressed surprise over the situa tion. A CBS correspondent with Nixon informed his office here that the vice president disclaimed responsibility for the order.
