KINGSPORT TIMES Tuesday March 30 1971 Manson Sentenced Continued From Page 1 Miss Krenwinkel echoed: Youre removing yourselves from the face of the earth Youre all fools There never has been any justice in this courtroom Your system is just a game In which you all make money Miss Van Houten shouted It took court clerk Gene Darrow more than 20 minutes to read the " verdicts The names of the victims were never mentioned Superior Court Judge Charles H Older told the jury if it were in his power he would award them a medal for ser-! ving on the jury which was sequestered longer than any (ither panel in history He stepped from the bench Calley Convicted Continued From Page 1 A fourth charge of murder of a' two-year-old child was reduced to a finding of guilty of assault with intent to murder Calley denied all except firing six to eight shots along with others of his platoon into the ditch with his muzzle only five feet from the villagers but said he doesnt know whether he hit anybody Five of his platoon testified they saw his bullets ripping into the screaming group in which mothers were diving protectively on top of their children The government charged the slaughter was by Calleys own hand or by his platoon members at his command Calley testified he told one of his soldiers Paul D Meadlo to waste one group of prisoners Calleys was the first capital case to be tried on charges growing out of the May Lai massacre of March 16 1968 and the first conviction Sgts David Mitchel and Charles E Hutto were acquitted of assault with intent to murder while the Calley case was in progress The Calley case was a landmark in military jurisprudence both the longest court-martial and longest deliberation in American history There has been no trial in the Army with as many alleged murders and no military trial Continued From Page 1 libraries such as the one at Church Hill will be forced to close Even if county courts decide to offer assistance they cannot afford to provide funds which would be required to purchase the volume and variety of books necessary to keep the library on the level it is now Last year when the county library system required additional funds Hawkins County squires approved the money without debate or dissenting vote But the idea of financing the entire cost of all libraries in the county on their own would probably be too much for the already-strained county budget to handle If they close this library high school children will have to travel all the way to Kingsport or Rogersville to check out a book for a book report Considering the number of assignments in high schools or even grade school nowadays it would not only place a great burden on the students but on the libraries which would have to serve them Mrs

was to formally pronounce sentence April 19 but it was not expected that Manson and the women would be executed for at least three to five years if ever An appeal to the California Supreme Court is automatic in all death penalty cases This isnt the end this is just the beginning because of all the nonsense Mansons lawyer Irving Kanarek said The jury has perpetuated the very thing it sought to eradicate defense attorney Paul Fitzgerald said I fail to see how it solved anything The society which kills its problem children denies itself he added with multiple alleged murder of persons whose names were unknown The trial began Nov 12 The jury got the case on the third anniversary of My Lai Its verdict came on the second anniversary of the March 29 1969 letter by Ronald L Ridenhour to the White House and Congress that sparked the My Lai investigation It took Col Clifford H Ford the court president two minutes to deliver the details of the four counts of guilty His six-foot-two frame standing in the jury box towered above the diminutive Calley whose eyes widened at the first mention of guilt Calley stood at attention facing Ford saluted weakly with his fingertips at eye level and listened pink-faced but without grimace to the verdict When it was over he saluted again in an unorthodox motion that had the palm of his hand covering his right eye Ford snapped a salute in return On the way down the hall with his attorneys to the defense office Calley said nothing except: Can I go back to my quarters? He could not Military police arrived shortly to take him to confinement Inside the defense room his red-haired girl friend Anne greeted him and wept Rural Libraries Actually the Church Hill Library is not much to look at Located in a three-room block building the city purchased when they bought a house next door to be used as a health department the library shares breathing space with the Church Hill Police Department an insurance agent and storage space for maintainance crews or other city operated agencys The one room alloted the library is lined wall to wall floor to ceiling with books In addition books not available on the shelves can be ordered from the bookmobile when it makes the bi-weekly stop here If its an emergency ( my book report is due Friday and Ive got to have it! ) then shelves quiver and shake until an adequate substitute is found even if other libraries have to be contacted in the process "Its a good library one that fills a definite need for the residents of Church Hill To ask them to do without it when they see so little of their tax dollar used for anything that will directly benefit them is not fair the librarian said FUNERALS TAYLOR JOHN HENRY Funeral services for John Henry Taylor $6 Dungannon who died Saturday will be conducted at 2 pm Wednesday Irom the Dunqannon Freewilt Baptist Church with the Rev Echol carter officiating Bunal will be m me Taylor family cemetery The body is at the residence The Estes Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements PYLE LORENA Funeral services for Mrs Lorena N Pyle 71 2011 E Glenwood Ave Knox vilie will be conducted at 3 30 pm Wednesday from the Hamlett Dobson Funeral Home Chapel with the Rev Dr Thomas F Chiicote and the Rev J Ray Stuart officiating Bunal will be m Oak Hill Cemetery The body will remain at the funeral home where the family will receive friends from 7 to 9 p m Tuesday Hamlett Dobson Funeral Home is m charge ot arrangements Pallbearers are Paul E Gentry Perry D Kendrick Jack E Vaughn Thomas Gilliam Clifton M Kenner Roger A Lmeberry S S Benedict and W R Keslner I ONLY 17 ARE YOU BEING PRESSURED ON YOUR When you prepare your own tax return the pressure on you is tremendous You never know if you're doing things right Let H & R BLOCK prepare it for you Receive BLOCK'S famous guarantee of accuracy Why risk a costly mistake See H&R BLOCK GUARANTIt W fuerontee accurate preparation at ovary If wo moko any errors that cost you any Intorast wn will poy that ponolty or Intorost AMERICA'S LARGEST TAX SERVICE WITH OVER 5000 OFFICES 1760 987 3007 Ft Henry Dr Lynn Gordon Dr Bloomingdala OtlHWtlKOAVS AM lottM -
