U, 1H» PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) Shaw Trial Witness Admits He TOLD BY FBI MEN Made Up 'Bertrand' Story DACY GUNSLINGING ty read some of the perjury case record. The record showed that Andrews told the grand jury he believed "Bertrand" was Eugene Davis, a bar owner in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Haggerty ruled then that Alcock could not go into the matter, but later reversed himself, saying Andrews waived his protection by answering defense questions about "Bertrand." By VINT MADER Staff Writer Four FBI agents Tuesday identified Robert Lee Dacy as the kidnaper who emptied a revolver at them and twice held the weapon to the head of his 5-year-old hostage, Stanley Stalford Jr., during a pursuit from a South Los Angeles ransom rendezvous. Special agent Emmett Dohorty. 20-year FBI veteran, testified at Dacy's trial before Santa Monica Superior Judge Laurence J. Rittenband the defendant shot him in the shoulder Aug. 30, as he drew beside the suspect's speeding car. Agent Paul Chamberlain told the jury of six men and six women how lie rammed Dacy's car at Im- perial Highway and Vermont Avenue after deciding Dacy would escape "if 1 didn't slop him now." Chamberlain said Dacy also grasped the boy in a stranglehold and held the revolver muzzle to the victim's ear b e f o r e he was pulled out of the car. The boy was kidnaped from his Beverly Hills home two days earlier and held at the Trade Winds Motel, 11441 E. Carson St., Lakewood. The prosecution is seeking the death penalty for Dacy, a 39-year-old aircraft mechanic who lived at 610S E. Tanglewood St., Lakewood, on grounds he caused the boy bodily harm.

By DON McKEE NEW ORLEANS UP) -A pudgy lawyer who said "my mouth ran ahead of my brain" testified Tuesday that he made up the name "Clay Bertrand" and a story that "Bertrand" tried to get an attorney for Lee Harvey Oswald after President John F. Kennedy's assassination. "I can't give you any explanation," said Dean A. Andrews Jr., a defense witness at Clay Shaw's trial on a charge of conspiring to assassinate Kennedy. "Once you make a fool .out of yourself, you're stuck with it," Andrews said. . Andrews, convicted of perjury in August 1967, said his testimony before a Warren Commission investigator and a grand jury was "page after page of bull." "In other words, it is page after page after page of lies?" asked Asst. Dist. Ally. James L. Alcock. "If you want to call it that, that's your privilege," Andrews retorted. "Bertrand" is the alias w h i c h Dist. Ally. Jim Garrison contends Shaw, used in plotting Kennedy's death with Oswald and David W. Ferric, a former airline pilot. Both Oswald and Feme are dead. It was Andrews' story that first injected "Clay Bertrand" into the investigation. Andrews told a federal agent, in 1963 he received a call from a man by that name who wanted a lawyer for Oswald, arrested soon after Kennedy's murder in Dallas and charged with the slaying. On the witness stand Tuesday, Andrews testified he talked by telephone Nov. 23, 1963, with a friend named Gene Davis. During the conversation, Andrews said, either he or Davis said something about Oswald. "I never can remember what I said," Andrews said. Q. You mean to tell me that no one called you on behalf of Lee Harvey Oswald? A. Per se, yes. The phone call I received was from Gene Davis and involved the sale of an auto. Asked why he called another attorney about defending Oswald, Andrews replied: "That is something I can't answer." Me said he was under sedation in a hospital at the time and his memory was foggy. But he said he thought about trying to become Oswald's lawyer. "I'd like to be famous, loo, other than a perju- ror." he said. Q. This call in behalf of Lee Harvey Oswald was a figment of your imagination? A. I have tried to say that consistently and nobody gave me the chance. Q. Didn't you testify before the grand jury. A. Three times. Q. Did you tell them this was a figment of your imagination? A. No, all I knew was that I was walking into a trap. I Q. Didn't you have a chance before the Warren Commission? A. They never gave me THEN THEY ALL TOOK A COLD SHOWER BALTIMORE l/l'l -With more than 100 men in frantic pursuit, a nude girl dashed across the College Park campus of the University of Maryland Tuesday night. The nude darted out of the shadows about 11 p.m. and raced across an open space in front of Cumberland Hall, a men's dormitory. As the men poured out of the dorm and gave chiise, she stumbled twice before reaching ;i wailing car which whisked her away. The only casually was a male student who injured his ankle when he fell down a slariway trying lo investigate a report of a second nude girl. DEAN A. ANDREWS 'Page After Page of Bull' a second bite of the apple. Andrews, who resigned as an assistant district attorney in suburban Jefferson Parish after his perjury indictment, testified that when he talked to an I 7 BI agent he suddenly realized Davis might get in trouble. So, he said, he tried lo think of a cover iname and remembered Davis once was jokingly introduced in a bar as "Clay Bertrand," Criminal Dist. Court Judge Edward A. Haggerty Jr. leaned over to ask why that particular name was chosen instead of "Joe Brown or Charlie Smith." "Of all names, I had to pick that one," Andrews replied. "I d i d n 't deliberately lie," he said. "I might've overloaded my mouth with importance of being a witness in front of the Warren Commission. I didn.t deliberately lie. The only explanation 1 can give is my mouth ran ahead of my brain." Q. You said you saw Clay Bertrand six weeks before the assassination? Was that a lie? A. You call it a lie. I call it huffing and puffing. Andrews explained his behavior by saying' "1 started it and couldn't quit. I just didn't want to get Gene Davis involved." He called the whole thing a farce. "There was no way that 1 could go. I was hemmed in," he said. Minutes later Andrews loft the stand after telling Alcock: "I told the D.A.'s office Clay Bertrand wasn't Clay Shaw . . . Nobody believed me." Court adjourned after the defense qualified handwriting expert Charles N. Appel Jr. of Washington, a former FBI expert. Earlier, Andrews testified that he had pulled the "Bertrand" name out of the air to hide the identity of the person allegedly seeking a lawyer for Oswald. He said he gave authorities a "cover name" but repeatedly claimed Fifth Amendment rights in court and refused to identify "Bertrand" on the grounds it might be used against him in a perjury case.
