The coroner said DeFreeze died of gunshot wounds. Asked if DeFreeze could have committed suicide, Noguchi said. "There is that possibility, but we're not quite WVEA the election. He said he would have something to say at a later date. +· FROM THE ONSET of the three-day meeting Thursday, the session was animated. Before any business was conducted, there was a controversy surrounding the seating of delegates from McDow- e'll County. One group had -been appointed. The second ;tiad been elected by teachers. -~ f Originally, the appointed ;group was certified. Later, - the elected group replaced the ; first and was seated when the -meeting convened. During the .".first session, delegates voted - fo oust the elected group and seat the appointees. Robert Turner, a McDowell County principal and president of the West Virginia Secondary Principals' Assn. was spokesman for the appointed delegates. They were chosen by James Lane, president of the McDowell County Education Assn. Roscoe Keeney, unsuccessful candidate for president on the reform ticket, said Saturday he regards the outcome of the election as a defeat for teachers. "Teachers dedicated to reform in the association must work harder and harder to gain control of their own organization. Kanawha County teachers will continue their progressive programs of active involvement of teachers in decision-making and will continue to work for reform in the WVEA. "Teachers identified with the TURN (Teachers United for Rights Now, the reform organization) group are to be commended for their hard work to bring about change in the state, especially in bringing about a complete reversal in the program of the West Virginia Association of Classroom Teachers. It will take a little longer to bring about the changes in WVEA." Keeney is president of the Kanawha County Association of Classroom Teachers. 9- A MOTION SUPPORTED by TURN to establish a political action arm of the WVEA also was defeated Saturday. - Newly-elected members of ." the executive committee are - Jean Douglas, Beatrice Noll, " Roberta Boggs, Robert Har; man, Patty Blevins, Charles - Moses, George La Neve, and ; Paul Higgins. - ; Executive committee mem- . hers representing educational - organizations are Catherine '. Smith, Robert Turner, Dan Makins, John Santrock, Ernest Page, Russell Crouse, Geraidine Noell, Robert Lindsey, James Stone and Leonard Clay. certain yet." He said that DeFreeze had a gunshot wound in his right temple and may have committed suicide during the gun battle. Noguchi said Miss Soltysik, also known as "Mizmoon," Mrs. Perry. Wolfe and the unidentified woman all died of burns and smoke inhalation. Asst. Police Chief Darrell Gates said that an article with Miss Hearst's name on it was found in the house but added: "We don't think she had been in the house. Our judgment is that she was not there, but again, there's some speculation." Noguchi said examinations had also ruled out the possibility that the unidentified woman was another suspected SLA member, Camilla Hall. Mrs. Perry had multiple gunshot wounds, including one in the chest and one that hit her spine, Noguchi said. Noguchi said Mrs. Perry and the unidentified woman were found at the back of the house, near the kitchen. The other three were found near the bathroom on the opposite side of the frame house in South Los Angeles. Police Cmdr. Peter Hagan had said earlier Saturday that some of the bodies were further disfigured because ammunition belts they wore around their waists exploded during the fire. John Lester, a spokesman for Patricia's father, Randolph A. Hearst, editor and president of the San Francisco Examiner, said: "Dr. Thomas Noguchi just called the Hearst residence and talked to Mr. Hearst, and he told Mr. Hearst that they have examined the five bodies taken from that house in Los Angeles and the conclusion they have reached exactly is that Patty Hearst was not -I repeat, was not -- in that house yesterday." Asked if he was sure Miss Hearst was not among the five dead persons, Noguchi said: "That is definite. There was no question about it. We could not be mistaken." if THE CORONER said X rays and dental charts were used to m a k e sure Miss Hearst was not one of the dead. He said the unidentified female was too badly burned to d e t e r m i n e height and weight and that medical examiners were trying to identify her by bone structure. A police spokesman with Noguchi at the news confar- ence said all five of the victims apparently were wearing gas masks at the time of their deaths. Nearly 500 heavily armed policemen and federal agents participated in the Shootout -the second raid of the day on a suspected SLA hideout. No one was found in the first raid, but authorities confiscated wigs and other items left behind by the terrorists when they fled. Koreans, Japanese Face Court-Martial (C) jVeic Vorfe Times Service SEOUL -- A senior South Korean official disclosed Saturday that 65 Koreans and two Japanese will be put on trial before a secret court-martial for antigovernment dissent as President Park Chung Hee presses a vigorous campaign to crush opposition here.

James Cleveland of Los Angeles, Calif., will be at the West Virginia Baptist in Hilltop at 7 p.m. Tuesday to conduct the organizational meeting of the state chapter of the workshop. with representatives of the tribe and the leaseholders, challenged Melcher's version of the department's action. But officials did not deny that Morton was likely to favor the Indians' petition for a lease cancellation. One top official here called the announcement "premature," saying, "An outright lease cancellation is a strong option, but there is no definite decision." But by telephone Melcher insisted he had been "privately advised that the leases will be declared invalid." He said he had "given congratulations" to tribal leaders. One Interior spokesman said that Melcher was "trying to get into the act." *· THE 4,000 impoverished Northern Cheyenne, once one of the most warlike Plains tribes, own at least two billion tons of the low-sulfur, or union formation, in Eastern Montana, the largest single block of coal in the United States. The leases involved cover the choicest half of the Indians' coal reserves. The leasing companies, with a $2.7 million investment there to date, are the Peabody Coal Co. of St. Louis, the nation's largest coal producer, the Consolidation Coal Co. of Pittsburgh, the second largest; American Metal Climax Inc., with headquarters in New York; the Chevron Oil Co. of San Francisco, a subsidiary of Standard Oil of California, and two smaiier Montana-based leaseholders. Spokesmen for the companies could not be reached Saturday, but one Interior Dep a r t m e n t aide said that company executives learned last week that a decision for the Indians was likely and they were "seething." ^ THE TRIBAL council early this year retained the Seattle law firm of Zionitz, Pirtle, Morisset to press for abroga- tion of all leases negotiated by the Bureau. Alvin J. Ziontz, the tribe's chief counsel in the dispute, said that the Indians' petition contended that the Bureau had "simply ignored" an array of departmental requirements in making the leases as the Northern Cheyenne trustee. The petition said that the Bureau had not only failed to obtain a fair market price for the leases but had also failed to conduct technical and environmental studies of the impact of suddenly superimposing on the remote reservation an estimated construction and mining force of 30,000 largely white workmen. The Bureau's own regulations, the petition said, limit single-company permit or lease holdings to 2,650 acres at a time, and the Indians' corporate charter limits leases to a five-year term.
