Formal sentencing is scheduled .for ..April 12, at which time attorneys representing the/"defendants are expected to^ask for a new trial, . ; The attorneys -- Harry Simon, representing Lehman; Luke McKissack, representing Koory/'and E. Fred Lightner, representing Stamp, indicated they: would appeal the ver diets if a new trial is not granted.' They a r g u e d throughout the month-long trial that Hon- eyman'i heart was in 'such bad shape that he could have expired at any time, and all on ar doctors agreed that Honey- pital. man could indeed have died at any .time, even in his sleep'. -The felony murder rule was ne.ver intended for this type of application," McKis saok argued to the jury. "This is absurd and bizarre. It is H legal, for instance, for a car to be driven through a crosswalk when the crosswalk Is occupied by a pedestrian. -'But if the pedestrian Is one step away from stepping onto the sidewalk, and clear across the street-a .motorist proceeds -through the crosswalk with . no. possibility of dyigeir to tie .pedestrian, it is ri?t'proper for that motorist to^be cited:" lit WA*S fik'ewYse 'riot proper for. the three defendants to be charged with mur- d^r because Carl Honeyman diS not take care of his health, the three defense lawyers argued. ·'Honeyman, who ignored his doctor's orders to q u i t smoking, lose weight and JOSEPH D.

"M o s t e m b a rrassing," Ceijas confided, as he adjusted a furled umbrella for a journey to the civil .jail on West 37th Street. He is 29 and gave a Miami address. C e i j a s ' embarrassment stemmed from a little matter of c r e d i t -- $27,000 worth, according to the Diners' Club, of which he might be classed a most active member. He joined the club last June, paying the annual dues of $11 with a check w h i c h , the c l u b complained, ' bounced. But by that time, Ceijas was off and running, Diners' Club Card at the ready. In July, the club charged, Ceijas turned up in Rome, waving the card beneath the noses of airline ticket agents, hotel managers, rest a u r a n t proprietors and shop keepers. Then it was on to Gay Paree and Old Vienna, with the little card ever in hand. Finally, in -Zurich, according to authorities there, Ceijas' credit spree ended when he tried with his card to get a car rental agency to put him in the driver's seat. The Swiss government accused him of fraud and he was deported. Which is how a welcom- HE declined an o f f e r to have a doctor called, but some 15 minutes later fell to the floor while talking to police officers. He was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Mary's Hostal. The trial, presided over by Superior Court Judge Beach Vasey, had been watched with keen interest by lawyers. The appellate courts are expected to review the verdicts with great thorough' ness, and all four attorneys involved in the trial agreed that the landmark case opens the door for a wide spectrum of interpretation in both civil and criminal law. ing delegation happened'to, greet Ceijas. upon his arrival at Kennedy Airport Friday. Besides the sheriff's deputies, it included customs officials and a Leonard · Wellt, a t t o r n e y for the credit card firm. With them the greeters brought an arrest order, signed by State Supreme Court Justice Birdie Amsterdam, on complaint of the Diner's Club. But this was not the final indignity visited upon the returning traveler. Customs agents stripped him of a $600 watch, and said he faces a fine for failure to declare it. The watch, of course, according to authorities, had been purchased by Ceijas with his little Diners' Club Card. GREAT SHAPE Gemini 8 astronauts Neil Armstrong and David Scott got medical clearance Friday for blastoff Tuesday on a three-day v o y a g e that calls for four historic orbital hookups and a record ' space "walk." "They're in great shape . . . very much ready," reported mission flight surgeons Dr. Fred Kelley and Dr. Norman Plncott. While the two pilots were undergoing the m e d i c a l tests at Cape K e n n e d y , flight controllers a r o u n d the world played a dead- serious game of keeping t r a c k of a little moving light as it inched steadily NEIL ARMSTRONG (LEFT), DAVID SCOTT ' Astronauts Ready for Tuesday Blastoff across a flat map of earth. The light represented the Gemini 8 spacecraft. Flight Director Eugene Kranz conducted the test of the global tracking network from Flight Control Center at Houston, Tex., watching closely while the toy Gemini changed colors from yel-. low to red as it passed from the imaginary light to dark side of the world. After nearly three hours of checking with his stations, Kranz was convinced that all is in readiness in that department for the or : bital voyage, America's first - m a n n e d space effort in 1966.

There had been reports that M i s s Shrlmpton, reputed to be the world's highest paid model, had been refused a .permit and would be allowed to stay in this country for three weeks, working only when a photographer stated a U.S. girl could not do the work. An' Immigration Department spokesman said the model who a r r i v e d in New York Wednesday, will be allowed to work here through Sept. 11, 1966. Aaron Frosch, the attorney for the Eileen F o r d Model Agency which han- .dles Miss Shrimpton, said the' whole incident was a misunderstanding and Miss Shrimpton never was denied a permit. MAXIMUM BONUS Gordon E. Freeman, 44, is $10,000 richer today because he re-enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard at Portsmouth, Va., for six years. Freeman, of Morehead City, N.C., became the first man in the Coast Guard or Navy to qualify f o r the maximum $10,000. re-enlistment b o n u s approved by Congress last September. ' The bonus resulted from Freeman's service longevity and the Coast Guard's critical shortage of electricians mates. "I went back to get the retirement b e n e fits," he said. Freeman is married and has two children.

Their mission: bring rare Type A-RH negative blood to Inglewood's Centinela Valley Hospital for a patient whose name they never knew. . Succeeding calls at 7:13 and 8:45 p.m. took deputies to Hawthorne Memorial in Hawthorne, Crenshaw Medical Center in Los Angeles, Baldwin Hills Hospital, Los Angeles, and finally, Harbor General, Torrance.

He con tended that it was just sue; a textbook-fund slash tw years ago that stopped th board from adopting a "pack age plan" for the so-calle "new math" and is giving th innovation a "rocky road." None of the board member could say how Gov. Edmun G.

Contempt Denied by Klansmen State Grab of Oil-Land Tax Pends (Continued from Page A-l) troller to deduct from state apportionments to local entities amounts equal to taxes collected on the state's interest in leasehold net-profit oil and gas contracts. The State Lands Commission m e m o acknowledged Jiat primary impact of the aw would be on the Long Beach tidelands, where Los Angeles County, Long Beach and the Long Beach Unified School District now gain tax revenue. . . : It also could affect future state oil and gas contracts," . predicted the state memo. Consideration of the resolution for the grab of funds · was delayed until March 31 on motion of State Finance Director Hale Champion. '[ haven't yet determined what the complete impact will be ... and I also want to find out whether a legal need exists for consideration at the special session," de-- clared Champion. - · · Previously, Gov.

The seven officials of the Jnited Klans of America, Inc., ace individual trials in fed- ral court here, beginning une 13 .with .Shelton. They were indicted by a grand, jury after the House interest taxes of Los Angeles County, Long Beach a n d ' r :ited them for contempt on March 3. The action stemmed rom their refusal to produce ecords subpoenaed by the louse Committee on un- American Activities during its nvestigation of the Klan, « « * * THE defendants said only 'not guilty" in their individual arraignments before Federal Judge Burnita Matthews one of the. few women federal judges in the country. The seven were freed on $500 bail each, which was posted by Lester Chalmers, Raleigh, N. C., who served as their attorney during the House hearings. If convicted, the Klansmen could draw a maximum $1,000 fine and one Long Beach Unified School District will reduce future slate oil profits. The result is the 1.966 controversy on whether Sacramento should raid the tidelands taxes. An additional factor is the 1966 election. Some Southe/ii Californians have advised the Brown administration that- a 1966 fund' raid 'might have'-' considerable political reper-" cussions.
