Commission retains top lawyer for Oswald WASHINGTON (UPI) — The Warren Commission announced it has retained one of the nation's top lawyers to. protect the interests of Lee Harvey Oswald. President John F. Kennedy's alleged assassin. The attorney is Walter E. Craig of Phoenix. Ariz., current president of the American Bar Association. The announcement by the presidential commission investigating the assassination said Craig "has accepted this responsibility as a public sen' ice." Craig will personally undertake the task with the assist ance "of such associates as he may himself choose," the an nouncement said. It said he would have available to him all the materials in the hands of the commission. The commission, headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren, has heard secret testimony from the widow, mother and brother of Oswald. The commission had said previously that it would take care to sec that Oswald's interests were protected, even; though he was killed himself two days after the Nov. 2 snssination in Dallas, Tex.

In two previous efforts to annex to MWD, the election was conducted by the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water district on an area basis.

According to a report, a scr­ ies of locked doors at the home blocked the would-be intruder's entry. He pried a lock and a hasp off of a rear door, but the door was bolted from the inside. He then apparently forced his way through a window into a service porch, but again a locked door leading to the kitchen stopped him from gaining entry inside the house itself. The method of entry was thc same used in other burglaries in thc neighborhood.
