Fire fighters keep vigil in Los Angeles LOS ANGELES (UPI)-Firefighters kept their vigil today over three major bush fires in Southern California, all of them contained behind fire lines but still not under full control Increased humidity and reduced winds helped fire crews improve their position, but officials poted a continued high fire hazard. Damage from the three major fires—in Chevy Chase Canyon and Whiting Woods near Glendale and in Weldon Canyon near Newhall—was expected to exceed $3 million.

Brown throw out Ruby's murder conviction because of 182 legal errors and grant a new trial. The motion for a new trial was filed by Phil Burleson of Dallas, an appeals specialist and one of two of Ruby's trial lawyers who are still on the case. Ruby, 52, was convicted and sentenced to death for shooting accused presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald in the base ment of Dallas city hall last Nov. 24. The motion is the first step I to get Ruby's conviction and 'death sentence into appeals court. Burleson filed the motion after talking by telephone xvith high-powered criminal lawyer Percy Foreman of Houston, hired Thursday to replace Melvin Belli as head of the Ruby defense team. The motion was filed before visiting Judge Sam Johnson of HiUsboro, Te.x., substituting for ! Brown who is on vacation. "I will not rule on it," Johnson said. It will have to wait for Judge Bro«-n to get back." Burleson and Joe H. Tonahill of Jasper, Tex., assisted Belli in the trial. Ruby fired Belli, retaining both Burleson and Tonahill. But there was some doubt as to their status. Foreman, who said he has i never met Ruby, was tied up in court today but said he was preparing a motion for a new- trial and would file it on Monday. Burleson had originally planned to file the motion today. Attorneys Burleson and Joe H. Tonahill of Jasper, Tex. are both still representing Ruby. Foreman said his agreement, a signed contract with Ruby's sister and three brothers, specified that he would be chief defense attorney, "but I w-ould certainly have no objection to Joe and Phil remaining in the case. In fact, I would like to have them with me." Foreman said he would base his motion for a new trial on two arguments: —That Judge Joe B. Brown should not have admitted into testimony statements by officers about what Ruby said while under arrest; —And that the judge should have disqualified jurors who witnessed the killing on television. Salinger takes out papers for senate candidacy SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) -! Pierre Salinger today took the first formal step toward seeking the Democratic nomination for U. S. senator from California when he posted a $450 filing fee with the San Francisco registrar of voters. Salinger, who resigned Thursday as White House press secretary, appeared at the office of Registrar Charles Rogers at 9:15 a.m., paid the fee in cash and picked up the necessary pa pers for filing his candidacy before the 5 p.m. deadline today. He scheduled meetings with advisors and supporters throughout the day, along with a news conference at noon PST. His formal declaraUon must be filled out and endorsed by at least 65 supporters. Meanwhile, Salinger's successor as White House press secretary, George E. Reedy, told newsmen in Washington that President Johnson would take |no sides in the Senate primarj' election in California. Salinger arrived in San Francisco by plane early today from Washington. He declined to discuss his plans, but said he wanted to consult with friends, 'particularly about residential qualifications." "It's great to be back in Cali fomia," he said. ^Vhen asked if he planned to enter the Senate race, Salinger commented "there's always room for one more." He said he would hold a news conference at 10 a.m. PST during which he was expected to make his bid on the Democratic ticket. The portly Salinger Thursday resigned unexpectedly the high White House position he had held since President Kennedy's 1960 presidential victory. President Johnson accepted Salinger's resignation "with the greatest regret and reluctance" and immediately named George Beedy, a long-time aide, to Salinger's job. In announcing his own resignation, Salinger also disclosed that Andrew T. Hatcher is quitting his post as associate White House secretary. The 38-year-old Salinger is required under California law to file his declaration of candidacy in San Francisco by 5 p.m PST (8 p.m. EST) today. He also must submit a list of his sponsors at the same time. There was some question as to whether Salinger would be eligible to run for the Senate race in his native state. The Constitution require.<; only that a Senate candidate be ah "inhabitant" of the state in which he runs at the time he is elected. California state law- requires a three-month registration with the party but does not specify such registration must be in this state. A Democratic source pointed out that the Supreme Court haa ruled favorable in such cases as Salinger's in the past on two grounds: That the question is submitted to the voters when they elect him and that the Senate sets its own rules of eligibility to serve. If Salinger's name goes on the ballot, he will take on at least two formidable candidates for his party's nomination. Incumbent Clair Engle is recovering from brain surgery and has announced that he uill run for re-election. Engle has never lost an election in California. State Controller Alan Cranston, who has the backing of the 70,000-member California Democratic Council, Thursday welcomed Salinger into the race and predicted several other candidates would file before the deadline.

Reedy, a close associate of President Johnson since Uie Chief Executive's Senate days, took over as presidential press secretary today in a surprise changing of the White House guard. Appointment of the 46-year- old Reedy followed the resignation Thursday of Pierre Salinger, who quit to run for the Democratic nomination to the Senate in California. Salinger was named press secretary in 1961 by President Kennedy. Leaving with Salinger was Associate Press Secretary Andrew T. Hatcher, another Kennedy appointee and the first Negro ever to serve in the White House press office. Hatcher accompanied Salinger to California. He is a former California state official who was recruited by Kennedy to aid his 1960 campaign for the presidency. Goldwater hammers at Demos foreign policy House group rejects silver dollar minting WASHINGTON (UPI) — The House Appropriations Committee decided today it would be dime wise and dollar foolish to use the government's dwindling silver supply for SI coins. The committee rejected a request by the Bureau of the Mint for $650,000 to strike 50 milhon new silver dollars to add to dwindling supplies. The Treasury has only about $27 million in silver dollars in its vaults and Western senators and congressmen have urged it to mint some new ones. The big cartwheels haven't been minted since 1935, and Westerners, including Nevada gamblers are afraid their favorite coins will vanish. But the AppropiaUons Committee said all kinds of coins are in short supply and even with around-the-clock shifts at U.S. mints, all denominations are being rationed. The committee noted that there were no substitutes for pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters and halves, while silver dollars have paper currency counterparts.

SACRAMENTO (UPI) — CaU- fomia Democrats today outwardly welcomed Pierre Salinger's entry into the U.S. Senate race but privately wondered if he was eUgible. Most left litUe doubt tiiat the voters will provide the answer in the June 2 primary election, although there was some chance of a court test.
