11B -June 20, 1976 Sunday Gazelle-Mail Charleston, West Virginia Bailey to Request New Hearst Trial Cancer-Causing Diabetic Drug Replaced SAN DIEGO (AP) - Attorney F. Lee Bailey says he will ask for a new trial for Patricia Hearst, based on new evidence he says has been discovered and evidence he says was withheld from the defense by the prosecution. The young newspaper heiress was convicted last April of robbing a San Francisco bank with the Symbionese Liberation Army. Bailey disclosed his plans Friday to the San Diego Union after meeting for nearly two hours with Miss Hearst at San Diego's Metropolitan Correctional Center, where she is undergoing a 90-day diagnostic study prior to sentencing. * * * IN A RECENT interview with The Associated Press, he said the government withheld the fact that two witnesses -- owners of a car allegedly stolen by Miss Hearst and fellow SLA members William and Emily Harris - identified Harris as the man who threatened a clerk with a shotgun. Anthony Shepard, a clerk at Mel's Sporting Goods store in Inglewood, testified during Miss Hearst's trial that he wasn't sure if it was the heiress who stalked him down a street with a gun. Bailey contended that Shepard's grand jury testimony and that of the car's owners was withheld by the government. Harris allegedly told the two in the car, "I'll get that son of a bitch," referring to Shepard. The clerk was involved in a scuffle with the SLA members on May 16,1974, when the three were trying to escape iden-. tification. * * * BAILEY SAID,."We had 11 attorneys and numerous investigators on the case, but we didn't get the kind of evidence we have now." He did not elaborate f u r t h e r on his claims of new evidence. Bailey also said he met for an hour with a San Diego resident concerning his client, but would not identify the person he talked to, nor would he say what they discussed. Bailey said he was not seeking a retrial of Miss Hearst because of the death this week of U.S. District Court Judge Oliver Carter. Carter, who presided over the first trial, died Monday in San Francisco. He had given Miss Hearst a preliminary sentence of 35 years pending the outcome of the diagnostic studies. WASHINGTON (AP) - A drug company is quietly replacing stocks of a widely used oral diabetes treatment because the drug contains minute amounts of a cancer- causing chemical, federal officials acknowledged Saturday.

Dr. Sidney M. Wolfe, of the Health Research Group, said the contaminant chemical, a nitrosamine. was proved in studies to cause cancer in rats and hampsters. The chemical is suspected of causing human cancers and the FDA previously took steps to eliminate it in other products. Dr. J. Richard Crout, director of the FDA's Bureau of Drugs, said in a statement that Wolfe's charge of a secret agreement between FDA and Upjohn "is without foundation and irresponsible. * * * "THE AMOUNT of nitrosamine in the; old product consumed daily by a patient 1 t a k i n g the maximum dose of Tolinase would be thousands of times smaller than the dose that causes cancer in rodents," Crout said. "The FDA does not notify the public of manufacturing changes for drugs when no health hazard or violation of law is involved,"he continued. "Patients now taking Tolinase should not disrupt their therapeutic programs,'' Crout said. English Tour Bus Crash Kills 3 Americans Introducing popular WICKER and CANE FURNITURE, We are presenting this- RATTAN ROCKER $4995 . »w 1 p I 1 1 Save $20.00 GATWICK, England (AP) - A bus carrying 16 Americans, two Britons and a Frenchman on a Bicentennial tour of historic sites skidded off a rain-slick road and overturned in a ditch Saturday. Police said three American women were killed. Two American women and an American man were admitted to Redhill General Hospital while the others were treated and taken to a nearby hotel for the night. Police Inspector Richard Duplock named the dead as Elizabeth Moss of Newton, Mass., Mary Martin of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Mary Hinkle, of Chestnut Hill, Mass. Their ages were not given. He said Mrs. Martin was traveling with her husband, Lewis Henry Martin, who was only shaken up. * * * DUPLOCK IDENTIFIED the three who were hospitalized as Elizabeth Childs of Norfolk, Conn., leg and back injuries: Helen Gray of Washington, D.C., head injuries, and Elliot Forbes of Cambridge, Mass.. with wrist cuts. A spokesman for the bus firm initially said the vehicle was carrying 20 American passengers but the figures were revised following the police investigation. Survivors reported the Americans, most of them from the New York City and Bos- ton areas, had arrived at Heathrow Airport from the United States a few hours earlier. Police said the three who died apparently were thrown out of windows and crushed under the vehicle. The injured were treated at Redhill General Hospital where three persons were admitted. Others were taken to a nearby hotel. Police said the bus driver was not hurt. The tour was organized by Supertravel Ltd. of London, police said. Police said the bus was traveling from Epsom to Firle Place, about 50 miles south of London, when it apparently careened off a rural road near Horley village and overturned into a ditch. Firle Place is the residence of Viscount Gage, whose ancestor, Gen. Thomas Gage, ordered the British troops to Concord to fight the American rebels in 1775. Welch was traveling with his wife Ellen, their daughter Ann and son-in-law Duncan Campbell. Campbell, a photographer from Vermont, said: "There was a terrific bang and a lot of screams. I scrambled to my feet and helped people who were trapped.' Whether Your To know us is to love us Quality, Pride, Value, Craftsmanship, Selection and Service . . .

Regal Ceremony Unites KingGustaf, Sweetheart STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - After a secret jet-set courtship of four years, King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden married his commoner sweetheart Saturday in a regal ceremony attended by kings, presidents and princes and witnessed by millions across Europe on television. Sweden's 24th queen is Silvia Renate Sommerlath, a 32-year-old German who took out Swedish citizenship only the day before the wedding. To the delight of her new subjects, she delivered her vows in near-flawless Swedish after a crash language course. After the 40-minute ceremony at Stockholm's medieval Storkyrkan, or Great Church, the couple mounted a horsedrawn open landau for a procession through the streets of Stockholm, under a heart traced in the clear blue sky by Swedish air force jets. * * * THE ROUTE was lined by a jubilant throng of 150,000 Swedes waving flags and holding balloons with the royal couple's portraits. Many had waited since dawn. At Skeppsholmen Island opposite the Royal Palace the king and queen boarded the royal barge Vasaorden to review- Swedish and foreign naval ships and receive a 21-gun salute. The couple then withdrew into the castle for a wedding luncheon with about 300 invited guests, serenaded by 150 fiddlers and pipers. They planned to leave later for a two-week honeymoon safari in Kenya. The lavish pageant cost Sweden Sl.l million but was expected to bring in at least four times that much from tourists and TV. * * * THE BRIDE WORE a diadem of cameos set in gold and pearls and an ivory Dior gown with a train worn earlier by her new sisters-in-law, Princesses Birgitta and Desiree. The 30-year-old king, in admiral's for. mal dress, beamed as his bride said her vows before royalty of eight nations and 1,400 other guests. : Sweden's Archbishop Olof Sundby was · assisted at the wedding by the bride's uncle, Rev.
