But the 23-year-old red-haired Brooklyn veteran steadfastly denied he murdered any ct his fellow prisoners. GALLAGHER, sitting with his arms crossed and constantly tsppine one toot, testified calmly in last-ditch effort to win acquittal of charges he committed the "unpremeditated" murders of three prisoners and collaborated with the enemy. The defense rested after calling a total of 11 witnesses, including Gallagher. A total of 27 men testified against Gallagher. There were five more prosecution witnesses to testify, and the ofen.e said it might present Callagher as its sole rebuttal witness before the case goes to the court-martial judges for a decision today. Callagher testified 'under cross-examination that his poor reputation with other POWs was based purely on untrue rumors they had heard about him. I KNOW when I walked down toward another squad, they said. "You better keep quiet here comes Gallagher.'

Gallagher is charged with killing Cpl. John William Jones of Detroit, Cpl. Donald Thomas Baxter of VVaukon, Iowa, and a soldier identified only as Dunn. He allegedly threw the sick and starving Jones and Baxter outdoors to freeze to death and beat Dunn and then hung him on a wooden peg. . The defendant said he had thought often about the death of Jones. "I do not feel guilty," he said. "I've often wondered if I'd left that man in the room if he'd have lived. I believe ' that with all the men dying in that room he would have died anyway. "I couldn't just see a man lie there and die. I was wondering about it. Maybe if I hadn't put him out he wouldn't have died. I still don't believe it was my fault." FORT LEWIS, Wash. (AP) Lt. Jefferson D. Erwin admitted yesterday that he made some of the pro-Communist statements attributed to him while a prison er of war in Korea. But, he declared,' he made them under threat of death. Erwin, 38-year-old Blanchard, Okla., career soldier, told of the death threats by- his Chinese captors when he took the stand in his own behalf. He is being court-martialed on charges he made disloyal statements and aided the enemy while a prisoner in 1951. When the . indoctrination program started in his Cmp 5, Erwin said he was threatened with death if he did not agree to voluntarily arise and make a pro-Communist statement at a meeting of prisoners the next day. The statement was to the effect the South Koreans started the war with the backing of American aggressors. Erwin said he prefaced the the statement, and all others he was forced to make, with words that the Chinese have taught us that the South Koreans, etc' or "according to what informa tion we have available to us here, the South Koreans, etc." DID YOU KNOW...
