(Bobby) Baker faced the threat of a contempt citation today but three members of thc Senate Rules Committee agreed he was safely entrenched behind the Fifth Amendment. Sen. John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky., said the Fifth Amendment was an "air tight de fense" against contempt action Sens. Howard W. Cannon, D-Nev., and Robert C. Byrd D-W.

Chief defense attorney Melvin Eelli renewed his motion for a change of venue to any other Texas community when thc state insisted on questioning a prospective juror who said he did not believe Ruby could be proved insane at the time he shot Lee Harvey Oswald. He demanded trial in another city "where it will be apparent that we are not in the Dark Ages, that there is such a thing as insanity.'' He was overruled. The defense demanded change of venue again when Mrs. H.M. Walne, a widow, declared she had an opinion in the case and "no intelligent person can avoid having one." Call More Veniremen Dist. Judge Joe B. Brown ordered the trial to continue and more veniremen were called. In the fourth day of the trial not one juror has yet been qualified. Prospective juror No. 21, the fashionably-dressed Mrs. Walne. was dismissed "for cause." So was J. P. Carr. a mon­ ument maker, who was thc fourth venireman for the day. The first three were quickly excused for cause because they did not believe in the death penalty, which the state seeks. It was a morning of roaring, caustic, sometimes rollicking exchanges between opposing attorneys and the judge. Belli at one point shouted: "We're surrounded by the police here." and asking that his table be moved so that no one could hear the instructions he was giving to an associate who was questioning a venire­ man. Belli Shouts Challenge Carr said he had no scruples against capital punishment. Dist. Atty. Henry M. Wade began to explain to him the law on insanity and asked him if he could follow it. There was a long pause while Carr pondered. Then he said: "Well, I don't think they can prove he was insane." Belli sprang to his feet and said: "I challenge the juror for cause." Wade said he wanted to tell Carr about the law on insanity and Belli shot back: "I don't think he wants to know." Wade continued thc questioning on insanity, and Belli stood! and intermpted. I cleanup task i I ANGRA DO HEROISMO, Azores (UPD—The islands of thc Azores archipelago, rocked by three days of sharp earthquakes, stopped trembling today and their residents began to clean up the wreckage. The quakes miraculously caused no casualties, a U.S. Air Force spokesman said. But they destroyed almost all of the 2,000 homes of the pencil- shaped island of Sao Jorge and flattened the island's main city, Vila Das Velas. The last—and worst—quake came Wednesday morning, a tremor that registered force eight on the 12-degree international scale. But by that time there were no houses on Sao Jorge left to topple and an international evacuation of the island was underway. At least 1,800 of the island's 20.000 residents were taken to other islands. The remaining 18.200 persons began the massive repair job today. Communications between the island and this central Azores district capital were restored Wednesday by a team of telephone engineers.
