Will Try to Fire Guard in Panama By ROBERT BERRELLE2 Associated Press Writer PANAMA (AP) - Hoarse from tear gas in a confrontation with the Panama National Guard, the president installed by' the National Assembly said Tuesday night he would try to fire the guard's commander today, President Max Delvalle, his cabinet and legislators were kept from meeting in the assembly Tuesday by Brig, Gen, Bolivar Vallarlno, commander of the 4,000-man guard, the country's only armed force. Rioting followed. Vallarino told The Associated Press/ "There are not two presidents in Panama. The constitutional president Is Marco A. Robles unless the Supreme Court rules otherwise, In which case the National Guard will abide by that pronouncement," The court convenes Monday. Robles was ousted by the assembly Sunday in a 30-0 impeachment conviction on charges that he violated the constitution by promoting a candidate to succeed him in the May 12 elections. Delvalle seemed cheerful as he spoke with newsmen after a cabinet meeting in his suburban home. He would not say what was discussed at the meeting but asserted the dismissal of Vallarino and all four of his top subchiefs probably would be acted on today. Downtown Panama appeared quiet Tuesday night after guardsmen dispersed crowds with tear gas and rifle shots, and seven persons were treated for gunshot wounds. Delvalle and his deputies/ caught briefly in the melee outside the assembly hall, ducked Into their cars and drove:away, A large group, of newsmen and cameramen were engulfed in tear gas and a hail of flying objects. Associated Press photographer James Bourdler was struck in the ankle by a grapefruit-sized rock but was not badly hurt.

Gulick, act* Ing head of the Maritime Administration, for 79 members of his staff who had received invitations to the $250-a-plate dinner to be held April 4, Gulick reportedly told those present that contributions were not being sought by arm twisting. But, the source said, Gulick added: "If you want to make sure that you have a nice, clean file —and you can be sure that a file Is kept somewhere — you know what to do." Gulick denied he made such a statement. "There was no pressure, no solicitation and whatever they wanted to do was in accordance with their own circumstances and their own positions," he said. "I'm inclined to think that this is a small minority that wants to think this way, I'm just at a loss to understand why." John J, McCarthy, deputy general counsel for the Civil Service Commission, said his office was checking into the allegation that contributions were solicited and that if the findings warrant it, "We will investigate up to the hilt." The invitations to the dinner, being given by Rep. Michael Kir wan, D-Ohio, and Sen. Edmund S. Muskie, D-Maine, for President Johnson, went to 12,000 persons, including government personnel with a pay- grade level of GS-15 and above whose salaries range from $18,400 up. The meeting on the question of contributions was called by Gulick for 11 a.m. last Thursday in a conference room near his office in the General Accounting Office building. Gulick arrived at 11:10 a.m. with his general counsel, Carl ,C.Davis.,, .,..„.... .,„:,.;. ..,,: .,. 9 (j)The,»spurge, said/ Gulick, tpok his place at the head of a long table before a standing-room- only crowd and said: "I'm going to lay It on the line. I'm going to give it to you as it was given to me. "C. R. Smith wisely turned this over to Howard Samuels and Bob Lee passed it on to me. (The references were to the new secretary of commerce, the undersecretary of commerce and the special assistant to the secretary for public affairs, respectively. "C.R. Smith feels that $250 is too much. He thinks that perhaps $50 would be about right. Maybe some of you would like to go in together. You know it Rules Judge Can't Increase Punishment LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The attorney general's office said Tuesday that a trial judge cannot increase the period of punishment assessed by a jury. Deputy Atty. Gen, Rodney T Parham said the opinion involved interpretation of Act 50 of 1968, the new Department of Correction Act, Section 28 of the act provides that persons sentenced to less than life imprisonment are "eligible for parole at any Unu>, unless a minimum time to be served is imposed," Parham said in the opinion requested by Circuit Judge WU* Uam J, Kirby of Little Rock that a trial judge could not fix a minimum sentence where a jury assessed a maximum sentence, DECLARES (from page one) Ugencergawering organization incapable of supervising paeifi< cation, "a very worthwhile pro* gram," Put, he said, the e LA was pri< nnry supervisor of the program and, the post is not known since funding is frpm CIA sources not subject to public Inspection., Roche said. 50,000 §pijtb Viet? namese pacification workers were "recruited., trained and paid, ijttier the auspices of the Central Intelligence Agency."

"If ypu want to make sure that you have a nice clean file -and you can be sure that a file is kept somewhere-you know what to do." One of Gullck's aides said he felt it was inconceivable that anyone left the meeting with a feeling that he had been pressured, But the employe who was at the meeting said, "The tone of CuUck's remarks was that, 'I'm a nice guy and I'm not going to do anything to you (if you don't contribute) but.,,' "I've seen pressure before, but this is the worst I've ever run into," the source added.
