(UPI) - A policeman Thursday testified 'Michael R. Soles told him and another officer that he had been thinking about shooting people for two days before a sniping from the 26th floor balcony of a downtown hotel Aug. 11 in which three persons were killed and seven others wounded. Police Chief Henry Salmans Jr. of Great Bend, who was b Wichita policeman at the time, said he and detective Steve Trainer questioned Soles after he was captured. "Trainer asked him why and Soles said because it makes me feel good shooting people," Salmans said. Salmans was one of six officers who captured Soles in a 26th floor room at the Holiday Inn Plaza. The others were Robert Carter, Sgt. Charles Franklin, Lts. Mike Hill and John Coonrod and Charles Clare. They were among 104 state witnesses who have testified since the trial began nine days ago. Soles, a Sand Springs, Okla., resident, has pleaded innocent by reason of insanity to 15 felony charges in the shootine. Judge Tom Raum recessed the trial until 10 a.m. Monday because of other proceedings scheduled Friday in his division of Sedgwick County District Court. A jury of seven women and five men are hearing the case. The arresting officers testified they fired several shotgun blasts through a glass partition before Soles, wounded by pellets, threw a rifle over the balcony and screamed, "I give up." In earlier testimony, Carter said Soles, lying on an emergency room table, was told he had killed two persons and responded by weeping niltl saying the officers should have killed him. Carter said Soles asked him how many he had killed nnd Carter said he knew of two dead (another died later). Carter said Soles wept and said, "Oh, my God. I shouldn't have let the police take me alive. I should have let them kill me."

OKLAHOMA CITY (UPI) — The metric system is a communist plot, as the director of the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center sees it. "Metric is definitely communist," Dean Krakel said. "One monetary system, one language, .one weight and measurements system — one world — all communist! We are playing into communist hands." Krakel delivered his views in'an editorial in Persimmon Hill, a publication of the Cowboy Hall. •"Here in the West, we're closer to our heritage — the land. We know the West Was • won by the inch, foot, yard and mile. Water rights, by which you live.or die in the arid West, are in gallons and acre- feet," he said. Krakel also blamed liberals, • the National Education Cigarette Smuggling Is . Big Business .WASHINGTON (UPI) — Cigarette smuggling — dumping millions of dollars into organized crime coffers- is so prevalent that every other pack sold in New York City comes from an illegal source, experts say. A Massachusetts official, testifying this week before the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations, • said that unless the federal government outlaws the contraband cargo nationally, it 'will abandon the nation to "criminal overlords." The government panel Thursday made public its report, which found state and local governments lose at le^st $390 million a year in tax revenues because of the smuggling. • It recommended, however, that "the states, not the federal government, should be held responsible for. the resolution of this problem." It said stiffer state laws and mQre vigorous enforcement should be carried out. Morris Weintraub, president of a wholesalers' group, said "one out of every twj) packs consumed in New Yqrk City is bootlegged. The underworld has become the biggest wholesaler in the state of "New York." Weintraub, who heads the Council against Cigarette Bootlegging, said smugglers have netted at least $750 million in profits on the East Coast alone during the last 10 ye£rs. School Board Meets Monday A relatively light agenda is in-store for the school board of USD 489 at the board's regular meeting Monday night. The meeting, which begins at'8 o'clock, will be at the Catherine Grade School. The board will consider a request to attend a professional meeting, a request for free textbooks, a maternity leave and also will discuss the hiring of certified and non-certified personnel. The final item on the agenda is a request for capital outlay funds to replace some equipment in Hays High. Association, federal, state and city bureaucrats and "dollar- grabbing commercial interests" for imposing on Americans "one of the most wretched, unkind, confusing, unwanted, costly, unvoted-on domestic impositions ever conceived.." "Is this what America gets for her glorious 200th birthday?" he asked. He contended it would divide families because millions of parents would never understand it, thereby widening the generation gap. Costs would be staggering, he contended, and "think of what it will do to'our football fields and the game itself." He.'ll personally have nothing to do with it, Krakel declared. ' Krakel said U. S. News and World Report contacted him of the American National for a printed debate with Metric Council, after reading Malcom O'Hagan, president his editorial. & Featuring -is.
