i A Boston Evening Globe Friday, December 15, 1972 Soviet magazine hails Richardson JXvuter : MOSCOW The Soviet foreign affairs magazine iew Times today welcomed the appointment of Elliot Richardson as US Defense Secretary, describing him as a man of "moderate liberal trend." The description con- Hub suspect held in NYC '.Francis P. Salemme, a j suspect in the 1967 murder I ot William Bennett, was ' arrested yesterday by the ' FBI in New York City. Bennett's body has never been found. Salemme disappeared after being indicted by a Suffolk County Grand Jury in 1969 on the murder charge. 'He also faces trial in Neuu England's Most Gift eb trasted with the standard Soviet propaganda reference to his predecessor, Melvin Laird, as being among the "hawks" of Washington. But the magazine warned that the Pentagon, traditionally a chief target of Soviet propaganda, had Middlesex County for the attempted murder, by bombing, of Atty. John Fitzgerald's auto. Fitzgerald is a prominent criminal lawyer. James L. Handley, in charge of the Boston FBI office, said Salemme will be arraigned before a US Magistrate in New York prior to being returned to Boston.

"Its multibillion dollar budget is not likely to be reduced," the weekly's New York correspondent reported. However, Western observers here saw today's relatively friendly presentation of Richardson to the Soviet reader as symptomatic of the new climate between the superpowers following President Nixon's Moscow summit in May. New Times said Laird's departure "confirms the failure of Washington's policy from a position of strength." It shows the obvious fact that the. enforced change of military course in the new condi 1- ' tions requires new leaders." It said neither Richardson, nor the new Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, Caspar Weinberger, nor the new director of the Office of Management and Budget, Roy Ash, could be called hawks. "They all came from Harvard University, and up to now have been preserving its tradition of non-acceptance of military reactionary extremism. "This circumstance is especially remarkable concerning Richardson, who is to head the gigantic military machine of the defense ministry," New Times said. ELLIOT RICHARDSON . , . not a hawk But it cautioned that Richardson would have a counter-balance in his deputy, "the Texas multi millionaire and oil magnate William Clements," who it called a "frank conservative." New Times also objected to the appointment of Peter Brennan as Labor Secretary, noting that he had instigated clashes between building workers and antiwar demonstrators in 1970 while head of the New York local of the Construction Workers Union. Stone Probe hints BATON ROUGE, La. A special state investigating committee says it's up to local authorites to determine possible personal criminal liability in a student-police confrontation at Southern University in which two young blacks died. In a preliminary report on the Nov. 16 shooting, the biracial committee said the fatal shot came from an area where six men had gathered, "an area where sheriff's deputies had deployed." But the report did not say specifically that the shot which killed Denver A. Smith of New Roads, La., and Leonard D. Brown of Gilbert, La., was fired by a sheriff's deputy, nor did it identify the six men in the group. But Atty. Gen. William J. Guste J-, in releasing on Thursday the report of the 12-member committee he headed, said: "I think it is a fair assumption that it H 4 2 i i 7 ' ? i , ; ft ' !i f - i 1 1 deputy fired fatal shot He said the committee did not attempt to determine who exactly fired the fatal shot of No. 4 buckshot because "the matter may involve personal culpability and addresses it- CRIMSON TRAVEL SERVICE THE S.
