Court May Order A4-Palm Beach Post, Thursday, December 9, 1976 II 1 I ft Kim New Murder Trial . a-' .el 131 it r. ari 1 . i The grounds around the Rockefeller mansion are so V. : vi mutt heavily wooded that Secret Service agents were concerned about protection because they could not see from one side to the other. UPI Telephoto ST. ROSE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Supreme Court is considering the possibility of a new trial for a black teenager sentenced to death for the 1974 murder of a white youth during racial trouble at a local high school. Two witnesses have changed their testimony in the case, but the legal arguments hinge on whether it was legal to try the defendant who was 16 at the time as an adult. The court took the case under consideration more than a month ago after three lower panels rejected defense appeals. It could rule at any time. Gary Tyler, who was 16 at the time of the incident, was convicted by an all-white jury in St. Charles Parish, about 30 miles north of New Orleans, on Nov. 18, 1975. The vic tim was Timothy Joseph Weber, 13. According to court testimony, Tyler was on a bus riding home from Destrehan High School on Oct. 7, 1974, when the shooting occurred. The school had been closed by officials because of a racial fight. Weber was shot to death as he stood beside the road. Two witnesses - both students who were on the bus with Tyler -have ehanged their testimony. The key to the case, however, is Tyler's age. After he was convicted and sentenced, the U.S. Supreme court ruled that the state's death penalty law was unconstitutional. At the time of Tyler's conviction, the state constitution - which has since been revised - allowed juveniles to be treated as adults only in cases which carried the death penalty.

A historical sculpture from an old Aloany, N.Y. hotel sits on the back patio. The house is crammed with antiques, including two grandfather clocks and large Oriental rugs. Many of them came with the place when Rockefeller bought it. The grounds are so heavily wooded that the Secret Service was originally concerned about protection because they could not see from one side to the other. It probably will be sold complete with the high intensity lighting system installed by the Secret Service, since Rockefeller refused to let the government pay for it. It has a certain sense of history -Rockefeller says he played tennis there with then-Vice President Henry Wallace, and Henry Kissinger dines there often. The sale will be handled by the family real estate brokers, William J. Yates Inc. of Briar-cliff Manor, N.Y. Roosevelt except John Kennedy. At 68, Rockefeller is retiring from the Washington scene to his new Japanese tea house on the family estate at Pocantico Hills overlooking the Hudson River, his 5th Avenue duplex in Manhattan, his ranches in Texas and Venezuela and his coastal retreat at Seal Harbor, Maine. Rockefeller moved into the Washington house when he was named vice president in August 1974. He shunned the less impressive new vice president's mansion, and his wife Happy and their two young sons stayed in New York City. Rockefeller commuted on weekends. The original wooden farm house was built after the Civil War, and a more modern wood and brick addition that dwarfs the original section has been added over the years. Unlike other Rockefeller residences, the Foxhall estate is not a gallery for the vice president's priceless art collection - there are only three big modern art paintings bold slashes of green, red and black - surrounding FOR SALI Modest city mansion on about 25 wooded acres along the Potomac on posh Foxhali Road in Washington, DC New swimming pool Seven bedrooms, five baths.

Inquire Vice President Nelson Rockefeller after inauguration WASHINGTON (UPI) - Vice President Rockefeller, or any Rockefeller for that matter, would never be so crass as to advertise in a newspaper, but his office confirmed yesterday that the second most valuable privately owned piece of real estate in the capital soon will be on the market. A Rockefeller spokesman said the $8 million price tag put on the property by the Washington Post was "speculation" and refused to confirm or deny it. Only a year-and-a-half ago, a rough figure of $1.5 million was floated by Rockefeller aides, and the property is assessed by the city at $2.1 million - second highest in Washington. Rockefeller has owned the property since the 1940s when he came to town to work for President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He has found it convenient to have a house in Washington.

Folger, a division of Procter & Gamble Co., said its wholesale price to retailers for a pound of vacuum Folger coffee would rise from $2.68 to $2.88, effective immediately. "This action is a result of continuing increases in imported green coffee prices," a company spokesman said. Folger coffee is marketed primarily in the Midwest and West. In New York, the National Coffee Association said green coffee prices have soared 218 per cent since July 1975 when a severe frost damaged 70 per cent of Brazil's 1976 coffee crop and touched off a sharp rise in U.S. wholesale coffee prices. The composite price of green coffee beans sold by various growers now is $1.94 a pound, compared with 61 cents a pound before the frost struck Brazil, the world's largest coffee producer which supplies 60 per cent of all U.S. coffee imports. Brazil will not produce a full coffee crop for at least three years. The U.S. wholesale coffee price in November was $2.32 a pound, up 91 cents from the first seven months of 1975 before the Brazilian frost disrupted world coffee markets, according to government statistics. Although the price of coffee at the retail level has moved up steadily in the past 16 months, there usually is a 60-day lag period before hikes in Efciting action for the whole family.
