Many businessmen stuck to their stores to prevent looting even though endangered by the fighting. Since the outbreak of street fighting in Saigon during the Viet Cong's Tet offensive last February, there have been repeated complaints not only of looting but of senseless smash ing of whatever could not be carried off. Vietnamese, Chinese and American homes all have been hit. . The situation has done nothing to improve the government's image or to convince the people of Saigon that the soldiers are their protectors against Viet Cong depredations. However, there is an added dimension to the looting in Cho-lom, the Chinese section of Saigon, where much of the current fighting is now taking place. The Vietnamese have always disliked the Chinese because of their domination of commerce. Like some looters in the United States, the soldiers may feel that they are only getting back a little of what has been squeezed out of them in the Fdbfce-Hli f 1 it i 11 v-ta nsisar raw LfLOi 8 Sioux Falls Argus-Leader Tues.,June4, 1963 Mr. and Mrs. Jack of Pipestone, Minn., named Miss Sixteen Dakota in a contest Sturdevant has been of South. sponsored ; fife f j 'Can I file it under 'B' and take the rest of the day off, boss?' in FORMER ASTRONAUT Sioux Falls.

The obvious blow to prosecu tors, the decision is important, also, m what it did not do. It did not, said Stewart, bar prosecutors from challenging prospective jurors who say un der questioning they could nev er vote to impose the death penalty, or those who say their death-penalty reservations would prevent them from giving an impartial verdict on a de fendant's guilt or innocence.

White said the majority has made it impossible for states to get juries that will enforce the death penalty. - Justice William O. Douglas, in a separate decision, contended that the court had not gone far enough.' He dissented from its refusal to reverse a guilty verdict rendered by a Chicago jury from which opponents of capital punishment were excluded automatically. At present. 38 states have capital punishment, 12 do not. In some states juries set penalties, in some judges do the setting and in others the death sentence is mandatory unless the jury recommends mercy. Specifically, the decision reverses the death sentence the jury imposed on William C. Witherspoon, 43, in the 1959 slaying of a Chicago policeman, Mitchell Stone. But his convic tion stands and the next move is up to state authorities acting under the high court's ruling. Thirty -nine prospective jurors were excluded without any effort to find out whether their scruples would invariably compel them to vote against capital punishment, Stewart wrote. "If the state had excluded only those prospective jurors who stated in advance of trial that they would not even consider returning a verdict of death it could argue that the resulting jury was simply 'neutral' with respect to penalty," he said for the majority. "But when it swept from the jury all who expressed conscientious or religious scruples against capital punishment and all who opposed it in principle, the state crossed the line of neu trality. says he thinks he may live to be 100, or maybe even HO, Jim Gernhart, a resident of Burlington since 1943, drew 1,200 to this eastern Colorado farming community June 3, 1951, when he staged his own funeral.
