The verdict and sentences-ranging from 84 years to one year -- were pronounced after ,a four-day secret trial in an army court. : Lt. Col. Gladstone pefassetti Deixeira, who was com- juander of the garrison at the time of the deaths,, was sentenced to seven years,in pris: on but military sources said he was to face further "charges.- The story'first came to light last February -with an announcement from the army public, relations office that said military officials had uneartliied what they believed to be a drug ring operating among soldiers at Bara Nan- sa, jhfmiles west of Rip de Janeiro. In trying to get information. about the operation, the announcement said, officers entrusted .with the .interrogations "acted, in a depraved manner, provoking the death of the sol-, diers." '.-. Since : that brief announcement with no further explanation, there was no mention of the case'until recently, when it was announced the trial was about to begin. . The court said some of the . evidence put before it indicated other officers were involved. ;It asked the prosecutor to begin an investigation into the alleged involvement of these men.

"Slim WAC's. look-more attractive,'' said a spokesman for the army, officially called the ground self-defense force. He said that was not thereason · for-the ban on heavy recruits, but he did not explain the reason. ' Under a- new ruJing, the minimum weight for women recruits was set at 94% pounds and the t maximum weight at : 99 pounds, reducing the present weight limit ,by; four pounds. - The'army includes about 1,- OOO-WACs, More hamburger; for Army, roast High cost scuMing Navy steaks WASHINGTON ,(AP) With food prices rising, the Navy-has ordered mess cooks to substitute hamburger for steaks and -chops.

"Menus'will-be jiist as nutri-. tious but not as delicious," explained-a military food service officer. Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt Jr., in a message to .all com-' mands, noted a 20 per cent rise'in Navy food costs "over the last six months. , " . . ' · The Agriculture Department · Tuesday reported a 5 per cent rise in food prices from mid- December Jo mid-January, a 21 per cent increase over last January's prices. . Zumwalt,' the chief of. naval operations, ordered-food managers Jan. il to "suspend re-^ quisitioning of selected high- cost luxury and convenience items" such as steaks, roasts, lamb chops and lobster and to reduce "consumption of other . high-cost items." "Substitution .of lower-cost items in menus and in requisitioning, for resupply is. directed, consistent with requirements to serve'a quality ration and maintain prescribed subsistence endurance levels," the admiral said. Similar, orders are expected shortly from the .Marine Corps. · The Army and Air Force have yet to adopt these'drastic measures but officials indicate similar steps may be taken if the price trend continues. "We're watching; very .closely the rapid price rise of cer- . tain things" such as shrimp, lobster, minute steaks, sirloin and '.some fish fillets, said the, ·chief of the Army's buying pro- .gram.;;; /· · ' ' " - - ./.'- ' ;. . ·' "Steak is still on the menu,"; ; said the'officer, who asked not to be quoted by name, "but we'll have more pot roast and swiss steak than ever before."
