Police have not completed a report on the precise cause of the smashup. Three South Charleston teenagers escaped serious injury shortly before midnight Friday when the car in which they were riding collided hea- don with a tractor-trailer on MacCorkle Ave., near Arlan's department store. Charleston police said. Treated for minor injuries at Charleston Area Medical Center's Memorial Division and later released were Douglas Lee Eavenson, 18, of 1323 Village Dr., Gary Hoke, 18, of Overlook Way, and Scott Simmons, 18, of 1411 Princess Dr. Eavenson was driving a late-model car that collided near the Patrick Street Bridge interchange with a truck driven by Homer Duval Martin, DR.

William L. Calley Jr. appears to be living well while he awaits civilian court action that some authorities -- including the judge in the case himself -- say has a good chance of reversing altogether his conviction on charges of mass murder of Vietnamese civilians at My Lai. Calley, who has been entirely free from his house arrest on personal bond since Feb. 27. now comes and goes as he pleases -- with the exception of having to elude newsmen -driving about the city of Columbus in a white Mercedes Benz sports car loaned to him by a sympathizer, taking flying lessons at $17 an hour and preparing for courses he has signed up for at a local college. He is not employed, although his attorney says he has received a number of job offers he is mulling over. The exact amount contained in the defense fund raised through contributions is not known, but is said to be substantial -into six figures. Galley's appeals and reviews within the military system are now complete, and he has two important challenges pending in federal court. * * » THE FIRST, to be argued early next month, demands disclosure by the Army of all material relevant to Galley's conviction -- including the so- called "Peers Report," the secret Army investigation of the My Lai incident said to contain information on whether Army higherups tried to conceal the massacre. Also sought are any eyewitness ac- India Defends Testing NEW DELHI, "India (AP)A week after India exploded its first atomic device and entered the exclusive nuclear club, the euphoria that swept the country is beginning to fade. The more mundane issue of economic survival has shoved aside the temporary distraction provided by the under- gound nuclear test May 18. Soaring food prices, fears of a poor wheat crop, the continuing national rail strike, coal and electricity shortages, a drop inindustrial production and government budgetary deficits have again sobered the country. But Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's government still re- j e c t s a n y i m p l i c a t i o n a t home--as well as explicit and sometimes tough accusations abroad--that it is squandering funds on nuclear explosions at the expense of India's hungry masses. "It's an u n f a i r comparison," said one senior officials. "It is not a guns-or-butter situation. The amount spent on the nuclear device was trivial, while the benefit of this experiment for future development of the country may be tremendous." Officials insist that I n d i a does not have a lopsided view of its priorities. One Western diplomat said: "It is wrong to contend that some Indians will starve because of the money spent on the nuclear test, and it is eqaally wrong to say more fo4l would have been grown if th$Test had not taken place." counts of the incident and any reports made to the govern- m e n t by the so-called "plumbers" unit involved in the Watergate affair. The White House unit is alleged to have covertly inquired into the My Lai case. that move is preliminary to the major action by the Calley defense attorneys to overturn the military conviction on constitutional grounds. Federal Judge J. Robert Elliott of the Georgia Middle District Court, who released Calley on $1,000 personal bond, has agreed to hear the arguments June 24. Elliott, in a highly unusual public statement, has already said in court, in response to prodding by prosecution attorneys, that he felt Calley would be successful in his suit to overturn the conviction.
