GREGORY INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - A strong possibility existed today that future jury selections in Indiana will be made from voter registration lists instead of from tax duplicates of the county's list of property owners. A unanimous decision reached Monday by the Indiana Supreme Court strongly endorsed the system proposed by Vanderburgh Circuit Court Judge William H. Miller, who recently directed gvanderburgh County jury commissioners to select names of prospective jurors from the most. recent list of registered voters. A writ of mandate filed by the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor-elect William J. Brune sought to invalidate Miller's order. However, Chief Justice Don-, aid L. Hunter of the Supreme Court said Brune's petition was denied unanimously. "I think we have the constitutional authority to do it," Hunter said of the action taken during Monday's informal session. A formal opinion will be issued with a few days, Hunter said. Present state statute directs that prospective jurors be taken from tax duplicates of the county's list of property owners. However, a change a few years ago in the method of assessing such owners removed many of them from the list. The switch (Continued on page six) ^ Convention Highlights Reported At Meeting Memorial Service A Memorial Service was held for the late Oliver D.

Thomas of Ames, Iowa, was one of the volunteers who took part in the fruitless attempt to rescue prisoners of war from North Vietnam last month. Thomas returned to Ames last weekend to visit his family and was interviewed % Jim Mone of. the Ames Daily Tribune. The following, one of the first accounts of the raid from the viewpoint of an enlisted man, is Mones report: By JIM MONE Ames Daily Tribune (Written for UPI) AMES, Iowa (UPI)-An Iowa serviceman who took part in an unsuccessful November raid on a North Vietnamese prisoner of war camp. near Hanoi is convinced there was no security leak involved in the mission. Sgt. Marshall A. Thomas, 22, of Ames said in an interview even the participants were kept' in total secrecy about the nature of the mission until "it was too late to run or cry." Security, he said, "was a big thing.*'. Although the U.S. prisoners had apparently been moved out of the camp- situated about 23 miles from Hanoi—shortly before the U.S. rescue . mission, ° only one participant in the raid was wounded. Had there been a leak, Thomas said, "We all would have weighed 25 more pounds— all lead." Thomas, the son of Mrs. Leo A. Thomas of Ames, is a number of the Army Special. Forces Division. He was in training at Ft. Bragg, N.C., when he heard a call for volunteers for a "worthwhile mission which was reasonably hazardous." In early September, the volunteers were sent to Eglin Air Force Base in Florida to begin rigorous training for the mission. Thomas said while the men were training in survival, weaponry and patrolling, a village was being constructed on scale and based on definite landmarks. Thomas Figures Out Task "It didn't take an intelligence expert to figure out what it was," Thomas said. From then on, Thomas said, he knew his task involved "getting someone out." Much of the training was done during the evening hours so the men could learn io function by moonlight, Thomas said. When the volunteers learned the true nature of their mission, many were scared, some had trouble eating and sleeping and some of the more . talkative men suddenly became "pretty quiet," he said. An undisclosed number of helicopters finally took off for the Son Tay Prison Camp, and a flare ship dropped three minutes worth of light to illuminate the village and prison compound. "They had no idea what was going on," Thomas said of the villagers and North Vietnamese soldiers. When the flares died, a quarter-moon provided the only light. The raid was timed to the minute, Thomas said, praising the well executed plans that failed only because the prisoners had been moved from the village. Thomas said one helicopter even staged a crash to confuse the enemy. "There was quite a bit of resistance," he said. "All the people who were a threat had to be disposed of." Could Not Believe Thomas said he was in "awe" when he learned the American POWs had been moved out "I could not believe all that training would not pay off any results," he said. Later, he said, his opinion changed. "We showed we. could stick our head in the tiger's mouth, and the tiger didn't sneeze," he said. Thomas praised both the team effort and the "military genius" behind the rescue mission. Thomas said he is convinced (Continued on page six)
