Basically the comedy-drama (and it is just (hat, both comedy and drama wrapped up in a couple of somclimes-slartiing acts) is well done by the Southbury cast. It moves rapidly, it engrosses the audience, it provides no little food for thought about human beings and their foibles — plus a good many rather uproarious lines. It also includes a heallhy sprinkling of what may be generally classified as "four- letter words," some of which visibly jolted (he opening night audience.

Richard DeKreilas, 36, of Ledyard and Donald Brant, 43, of Providence, R.I., are on trial for killing Guslavous L. Carmichael, 38, of Boston and an unidentified woman on about Dec. 31. 1970. Stale police say Mrs. De- Freilas led them lo the double grave in Ledyard during May, 1974. Defense attorneys said T\ies- day her motive for testifying was to gain immunity from prosecution in the double- murder case and reduction ol a Rhode Island robbery sentence from five years to probation. The proseclion said she was afraid of Ihe pair. Judge William L. Hadden had previously disallowed that line of testimony, bul ruled Tuesday it could be continued as long as r» specifics were mentioned.

(UPI) A three-judge federal court in Hartford has heard argument on three lawsuils challenging the constilulionalily of stale welfare cutoffs.

Joseph Blumenfdd and U.S. Circuit Court Judge J. Joseph Smith reserved decision on the case. Legal aid lawyers told the judges Ihe policy presumes unfairly lhat welfare recipients who have violated Ihe law have alternative means of support. Howard Schiller of Tolland- Windham Lfgal Assistance suggested if Ihe slale suspects fraud, il should prosecute the specific case under criminal statues.
