(/P)—A white ex-convict goes on trial today for a massacre of three Negro children. Thlrty-clght-ycar-old Leon Turner Is accused of shooting to death Nell Harris, 4, Mary Burnslde, 8, and Frankle Thurman, 12, In their home near here shortly before midnight last Jan. 8. Turner will he tried first on charge of murder of the four-year- old. Death Penalty Sought District Attorney Henry Rodgers said he would ask the death penalty. In Mississippi, the death penalty—carried out 'n the electric chair—is rare for a white man charged with murdering a Negro. rtodgcrs described the slaughter as "a drunken orgy of revenge.' Last week wlndol Whltt, 25, nisi accused In the three staylngs, wn. convicted of the murder of (hi Harris child and was Jven a life prison sentence. A brother, Mai colm Whitt, 27, under simila charges, Is slated to go on trla March 21. In wlndol whitt's trial, the Whit brothers testified that Turner alon entered the Negro home and come out declaring he "had killed the whole damn bunch of them." Turner did not testify. State witnesses said Wlndol Whitt, armed with a shotgun, blocked the victims' escape. 1'arenl Was Shot The parent of the slain children, liomas Harris, 27, told the Jury iat a bullet from Turner's gun lattered his spine. Harris said _ lay helpless on the kitchen loor vhlle Ruby Nell pleaded for ,'ater. The child died after officers rrlvc-i about dawn. The other vie- ims were his step-children.

Home Korceably Kntercd Rodgers said the three white men lad forccably entered the Harris home and had attempted to rape he Negro woman Dec. 22. After the Dec. 22 foray, the white men escaped from Jatl. The Jan. slaughter, Rodgers said, was >rompted by a mistaken Idea that he Harris family had caused the arrest o( the trio. Malcolm Whltt surrendered the day after the shooting. The other Lwo were taken after a 57-hour manhunt. Bloodhounds handled by Clarence (Ilogjaw) Mulllns, state prison trusty, led a posse to the potato hut where windol Whitt and Turner were hiding.
