The helicopters relmncd after a month lo bring the intelligence agents out, and the teams are now located in territory con- rolled by the Cambodian government, the sources said. One team came upon an enemy camp in nallanakiri prov- nce, near .where Ihe Ho CM Minh trail luns through Cambodia.

Seale Charge Dismissal Seen Unusual (Continued from Tig* 1) 1970, to overrule Only two of the nine Justices, Varrcn E. Burger and 1'otter Blewart, favored hearing the government's argument thai udges must either swilch the ile of a trial, delay it until the publicity eases or keep trying to impanel an unbiased jury. Says Hilling 'Old' Richard Uvillcr, a former New York prosecutor who caches criminal law at Columbia University, said Judge Milley's ruling "seemed odd." "There have been many Instances of highly publicized 1 crimes in which it has proved possible, though difficult, to assemble an impartial jury nevertheless," Uvillcr said in discussing the action with a newsman. Noting that it took four mon Hi s to pick a jury for the Seatc-Huggins trial, the ex-prosecutor went on: "I don't say ne's wrong. The cost to the courts of these protracted trials is very, very grave. Maybe all tha system can afford is one trial per customer." "Forget Quickly" Still, Uviller said, "it's remarkable how quickly people forget what they read and put it out of their minds." To Insist on using only a jury that has never heard of defendants like Jack Ruby, Alice Crlmmiiis, Charles Manson and Bobby Seale, "might mean selecting a jury only of morons and illiterates," he said. The Sureme Court' has been exceptionally protective of defendants' right to a fair trial, Longshoremen Demand Tip Of $450 NEW YOUK (AP) -- H was during March last year when entertainer Jackie Gloason's luggage-all 21 pieces of It--was being carried aboard Ibo luxury liner France about to depart tor Europe.
