Last-Minute Switch In Lawyers Planned By Ray, Source Says Painting Stolen ZURICH, Switzerland (LTD Police Monday announced the theft of a Salvador Dall painting worth $25,000 from Zurich's Kunsthaus art gallery.

Sources close to Ray said the defendant maneuvered the lawyer change to delay the trial in the vague hope that something might change the picture and the case against him might be dropped. Foreman will ask for a continuance of the trial because he needs time to prepare the case particularly since Arthur Hanes, fired as Ray's lawyer is refusing to turn over his files and records on the case until he is paid $15,000 he claims Ray owes him. Judge Battle, who met with Hanes and prosecutor Phil Canale Sunday night after the change in lawyers was announced, said no jury venire would be called for the 9:30 a.m. EST opening of the long-awaited trial. Ray hired Hanes when he was arrested last summer in London. It was learned that Ray's brothers, John and Jerry, had urged him from the outset to hire Foreman. Hanes, on the other hand, reportedly tried without success to reach Ray's brothers since June. Hanes told Foreman by telephone Sunday night that until he is paid, "Don't call me, I'll call you." Hanes had suspected for some time that he might be fired. The suspicion apparently was strengthened last Wednesday, his final meeting with Ray. It was reported that in addition to his hopes that a delay might somehow change the situation, Ray was unhappy with Hanes' handling of the case. And his brothers were disgruntled with the financial agreement Hanes made with author William Bradford Huie, who Is writing a series of articles In Look Magazine. The details of the financial arrangement Hanes made with Huie have never been disclosed, but it was understood that Ray received $30,000 for his story, and Hanes several times that amount. Ray's brothers thought the defendant should have gotten a larger share. It was learned Friday that after Ray was arrested this summer In London, John Ray wrote him-addressing him under his alias of R. G. Sneyd in care of Heathrow Prison urging him to hire Foreman. Ray wrote back that he had agreed to hire Hanes, a former Birmingham mayor, and the inclusion of another attorney would be up to Hanes.

They considered it was not a major violation of the understanding that led President Johnson to end the bombing of North Vietnam Nov. 1. The impression in both Saigon and Washington was that North Vietnamese gunners, who killed four Marines and wounded 41 Sunday by raining 75mm artillery shells and 122mm rockets on three Leatherneck positions below the DMZ, were testing to see how the United States would react. The reaction was swift, but restricted to counterfire under standing orders which Johnson had given the U.S. commander, Gen. Creighton W. Abrams Jr. A spokesman said Marine planes and artillery destroyed one of the enemy's firing posi-' tions, threemiles west of Con Thien and a half-mile north of the southern edge of the frontier-straddling buffer zone.

Ray traveled about in Mexico then drove to Los Angeles November, 17, where, Huie says, he received "a command to come to New Orleans for instructions." He quotes Ray as having written that he drove to New Orleans, where Raul "said we had one more job to do and we'd do it in about two or three months." Ray wrote that Raoul promised him "travel papers" to anywhere he wanted to go and $12,000, and when he asked what the job was he was told I'not to worry about it and not to ask puestions," Huie states.

MANY MANY THANKS NEW YORK (AP) James Earl Ray, charged in the slaying of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is quoted in the current Look magazine as having said he unknowingly became involved in "some sort of plot to kill King" eight months before the murder. Author William Bradford Huie says Ray wrote from his Memphis, Tenn., jail cell: "I suppose I became involved in some sort of plot to kill King when I first took those packages into the United States from Canada ... But nobody told me anything about any planned murder of King or of anyone else." The "packages" were not identified by Ray or Huie. The article quotes Ray as having written that, while a fugitive in Canada in August, 11167, he met a man named Raoul who offered him money, a car and "travel papers" if he would establish himself In Birmingham, Ala., and make himself "available." Before leaving for Birmingham, Flay made two auto trips across the border at Windsor-Detroit with "packages" concealed in his old car by Raoul, Huie relates. In Birmingham, Ray got a room and bought a white Mustang with $2,001) given him by Raoul, Huie wrote. Raoul also gave Ray $.rO0 for living expenses and $5O0 for some camera equipment, the article states. Huie said Ray did not know why he was asked to buy photographic equipment. After six weeks in Birmingham, Ray went to Mexico where he met Raoul and, at MEMPHIS, Tenn. (UPD-James Earl Ray planned for as long as a month to make a last-minute switch In lawyers to delay his trial for the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it was learned Monday. It appeared the move would succeed. Famed trial lawyer Percy Foreman, brought into the case Sunday, spent the day drawing up his request for a continuance of the trial, set to begin Tuesday. Judge V.
