(Art.)' Courier ff«ws - Saturday, March' 18, 1967 - Page M/JW7O JUST SHAKEN — Attendents from Howard Funeral Service remove Judy Hunt, 20, of 2030 West Chcikasawba from the scene of an automobile accident which occurred on Walnut and Broadway at 2:09 p.m, yesterday. Mrs. Hunt, who is expecting a baby, was taken to the Blytheville Air Force Base Hospital and held overnight for observation. She waa re- leased this morning with no injuries having been found other than bruises of the leg. Driver of the other vehicle was Mary Bassett, 21, of 1301 Church St., Jonesboro. No charges were filed and no other injuries were reported. (Courier New« Photo) OSWALD (Continued from Page One) volved "triangulation of crossfire," diversionary shooting, a possible flight to Mexico and Cuba, the sacrificing of one man as a scapegoat to permit the others to escape. Of the three alleged conspirators, only Shaw, who stepped down as managing director of the International Trade Mart here 16 months ago, is alive. Oswald was shot fatally by Jack Ruby, in the Dallas police station two days after the Nov. 22, 1963 assassination of Kennedy. Ferrie, former airlines pilot with a homosexual record, was found dead in bed last Feb. 22. The coroner ruled his death resulted from natural causes — an a-neurysm of a blood vessel in the brain. Shaw, a rugged 6-foot-2, gray- haired man with erect military bearing, Was calm and stoic when the decision was read. Deepening lines in his face and bloodshot eyes, however showed the strain he has beei under since his arrest March 1 When arrested, Shaw called Garrison's charge "fantastic.' He denied having any part in t conspiracy and said, "I am completely innocent of any suc u charges." The Warren Commission found that Oswald was the as sassin of Kennedy, but the Nev Orleans judges refused to admi the commission's report as evi dence in the hearing. "This report is fraught wit hearsay. Hearsay four or fiv times removed," Judge Eager said Wednesday in announcin the 2-1 vote on rejecting th commission's findings. Garrison produced two wi nesses who linked Shaw an Oswald, New Orleans born ex Marine who defected to the Sc viet Union, then returned afte three years. Oswald, the Warren repor documented, was in New 0 leans from early April 1963 unt Sept. 25, 1963. Vernon Bundy, 29, an admi ted narcotics addict, walke over to Shaw in court Frida and put his hand over the at cused's head, identifying him a the man he saw with Oswa' here on the Lake Pontchartra seawall. Neither Bundy nor Russo tc tified before the Warren Com mission. They were not que tioned by federal agents in th case, either. U.S. Atty. Gen. Ramsay Cla said Shaw was investigated b the FBI and cleared of any pa in the assassination. Shaw sa earlier this month he was n aware of any FBI probe of activities. Ferrie gave a statement to the FBI shortly after the assassination. Garrison had arrested him briefly three days after the slaying in Dallas. The Warren Commission said it had found no evidence that Oswald was involved with any person or group in a conspiracy, but it noted: "Because of the difficulty of proving negatives to a certainty the possibility of others being Involved.. .cannot be establshed categorically." The court released Shaw on his present 110,000 bond which Shaw posted several hours after his March 1 arrest by Garrison, Russo said he knew Oswald M "Leon Oswald" and Shaw as "Clem Bertrand." Russo admitted he had been bypootind thru ttaw whll« idgecrest levival Starts Revival services begin tomor- watRidgecrest Baptist lurch. Services will be hsld nightly rough March 25.

Box 245 Blytheville, Arkansas 3-11, 18 ohead and, one top official said, a central point of the Guam talks would be to have "the old team and the new take stock together." In addition to the Bunker- Lodge shift, Deputy Ambassador William J. Porter will be replaced soon by Eugene Locke, no* ambassador to Pakistan. Robert Komer, a Johnson assistant, will move to Saigon to l.-ike charge of the pacification program. A number Of American civilian officials at lower levels are in line for rotation to other assignments. Just why Johnson has decided on such a far-reaching turnover of civilian personnel at this time has yet to be explained. Officials insisted, however, that there would be no overnight changing of the guard — that the new men would be "phased in" over a period of weeks. I They said the objective was to achieve a smooth transition. Another big mystery concerns he future of the pacification program. Asked why Johnson decided to Ty all the way to Guam, instead of to Honolulu where he met Ky, Lodge and Westmoreland 13 months ago, one White House source said: "It's a good business-like place. There are no diversions." He said the talks would be the equivalent of a two-day meeting of the National Security Council.

Shaw's attorneys filed more than 50 formal exceptions during the hearing, laying the groundwork for possible appeals. The exhaustive testimony un hypnotism and use of sodium pentothal —the so-called truth serum — drew a continuing stream of defense objections. Such testimony, argued defense attorney F. Irving Dymond, would not be permitted in • trial. H* uid the prosecution was trying "to slip it in the back door" by getting it into the record of the preliminary hearing.
