Chjrltsftn, West Vlrjlnli LSD Incident Prosecution 'Impossible' Shopping in the Rain " HUDDLING TOGETHER to gain protection from the rain under a single umbrella, two shoppers, who seem to know each other fairly well, walk along Capitol Street. (Staff Photo by Lawrence Pierce) WASHINGTON (AP) -Array Secretary Martin R, Hoffmann said in a letter released Saturday that two dozen U.S. soldiers on duty at an Army communications center were drugged with LSD by a fellow soldier in an incident last year in West Germany. Eighteen of the 24 soldiers affected were hospitalized for up to six days for "disturbances of the central and autonomic nervous system," Hoffmann said. However, the soldier whom Army investigators suspect was responsible for putting the hallucinogenic drugs into the com- INavy Lieutenant Killed in Argentina BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - A navy lieutenant searching for the slayer of Argentina's federal police chief was shot to death Saturday, the government said. Security officials said Lt. Jorge Mayol was killed by leftist guerrillas during a search ordered after the death of Gen. Cesareo Cardozo, 50. No guerrilla casualties or arrests were reported. Mayol's death raised to at least 509 the number of persons killed in political violence since Jan. 1.

Hoffmann in a June 4 letter released by Aspin, said that the suspected culprit was not identified by the investigators until after his discharge from the Army in July 1975, almost five months after the incident at Massweiler, West Germany. * * * THE INCIDENT occurred Feb. 26,1975 during a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) training exercise termed WINTEX. "The maneuver was not affected by the absence of the hospitalized soldiers," Hoffmann said. The message center was being manned around-the-clock at the time, the Army secretary said. Three hours after a fresh shift of 40 soldiers came on duty that morning, he said, "the initial illness was reported." "A skeleton force continued to work Ford, Educators Meet on Busing WASHINGTON (AP)-Prsident Ford met for 'about 90 minutes Saturday with · nine educators, most of whom apparently were sympathetic to his goal of minimizing busing as a means of desegregating public schools. When representatives of the educational delegation met with reporters, none expressed a negative view when asked if they disagreed with Ford's objectives. However, Roland W. Jones, superintendent of schools in Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C., did say that "undoubtedly the schools would resegregate" in his area if they no longer were required to bus pupils to achieve racial balance. Although Jones said he did not known enough about the legislation Ford plans to submit to make a judgment about it, he said he thought abandonment of busing would produce a gradual return to racially segregated schoojs of unequal quality. All of those who talked with reporters uniformly applauded efforts by F. David Mathews, secretary of health, education and welfare and a participant in the meeting, to devise a program for developing community support for school boards. 169 SUMMERS CHAS.W.VA.

Hoffman said that LSD - lysergic acid diethylamide -- was discovered in urine of the soldiers affected. * · "NO SOLDIER involved in this incident has, to our knowledge, suffered a severe reaction from ingestion of LSD," the secretary said. But he said the Army will provide followup physical and mental examinations to any soldiers who wish them. The soldier suspected of drugging the coffee, who was not identified in the letter, was outside the reach of military authority when the Army's Criminal Investigation Command completed its probe, Hoffmann said. Hoffmann said that the CIC commander will refer the Army's final report to the Justice Department "for action deemed appropriate." But Aspin said that alleged crime would be outside the Justice Department's jurisdiction also, because the incident occurred in Germany. Aspin said that the Army's deputy general counsel "agreed that prosecution appeared to be impossible."
