Woman Says Yablonski Killing Had Approval of the 'Big Man WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP).Annelle Gilly's statement detailing her knowledge of the Yablonski murders "has moved us a step up the ladder in the hierarchy of the Dulled Mine Workers union," says Special Prosecutor Richard A. Sprague. And one can assume, Spargue added, that "in the course of time there will be more arrests." Sprague commented after Mrs. Gilly's statement, -which drew UMW. President W. A, "Tony" Boyle's name into the slayings and said "the union" was behind them, was read Thursday In Washington Counly Court. "My father told me 'that Yablonski murder had the ap-' proval of the 'big man,''' Mrs. Gilly said in her 21M-page statement. "To me, that meant Tony Boyle, president, United Mine Workers Union." Boyle refused to meet with newsmen, but the UMW's general counsel, Edward L. Carty, denied in New York thai Boyle or any oilier UMW member had anything to do with the killings. He termed Mrs. Gilly's statement, on the basis of excerpts reported by the press, extremely vague. He said- t!w term "big man" could apply to many persons. The statement contained no the other references to Boyle aside from Mrs. Gilly's interpretation of the words "big man." Mrs. Gilly did not say how she concluded that this meant Boyle. Joseph A. "Jock" Yablonski, 59, UMW insurgent; his wife Margaret, 57, and their 25-year- old daughter Charlotte were shot to death in their sleep at their stately home in nearby Clarksvilte. Their bodies were found on Jan. 5, 1970. Yablonski had just lost heated campaign to unseat Boyle from (he presidency and was about to testify before a federal grand jury in Washing' ton, D.C., that was probing UMW affairs, 'This case will only be s cessfully concluded when we find out who ordered this assassination and who put up the money," Sprngue said. "And I suspect that we will reach that level." Mrs. Gilly's statement was read at a pretrial hearing for her father, Silous llnddleston, 63, one of five other persons currently in custody in the case. Ho is charged with murder and conspiracy. Mrs. Gilly's husband Paul was convicted of murder and sentenced to death for the Yablonski killings last month. Mrs. Gilly is also charged with murder and originally entered a plea of innocent. However, at a hearing Tuesday she changed her plea to guilty and turned slate's evidence Â· in return for a prosecution pledge not to seek the death penalty against her. in her statement, given to the FBI, Mrs. Gilly said her fathenl Prl., April 14, 1972 GRREU3Y (Colo.)

'Hair' To Be Presented in Oklahoma City DENVER (AP) - The .10th Circuit Court of Appeals Thursday ordered" Oklahoma' City, Okla., to allow the musical "Hair" to .be presented in the city's auditorium. The ruling' reversed an Oklahoma Cily federal district court decision, wtiich had upheld the city's right to ban the production in the Civic Center Music Hall. The circuit court ruling remanded, the'.case back to U.S. District Court Judge Luther Eubanks with direction^ to vacate the judgment,and to direct the city administration to make the hall available for the rnusl cal. The suit was filed by Southeastern Promotions, Ltd., New York firm, which was denied permission by the city to present "Hair" on April 27-28. Southeastern Promotions contended it was being denied its constitutional rights while the city claimed it had a right to deny a lease for the hall. The circuit court ruled, however, that the city "jettisoned its contention" that it could refuse permission for the musical on proprietary grounds. The court further said, "It (the city) now argues, as does the appellee, that the issue is whether the production is ob scene." The appeals court said il could not rule on the obscenity question because the lower court did not consider whether "Hair" is obscene. Furthermore, the court said only part of the show's scrip! was presented as evidence, ant the panel could not make a nil ing based on representative samples. Judge Hugh H. Arnold con inued the case to May 8 for rial setting. Binder, in the information : iled against him, is accuse of using the telephone to disturb Mr. and Mrs. Don Kelly by re jeated, continued and anony nous telephone calls with tb ntent to harass and disturb Ihi Kellys and thelf family.
