Kniss is now with the Martin at Jayne, and Julius Barnes, found guilty on charges stemming from the murder of Jayne's brother, will be overturned when the case is appealed. A Cook County Criminal Court jury Saturday found the three men guilty of charges stemming from the Oct. 28, 1970, slaying of Jayne*s brother, George.

The jurors found Silas Jayne and LaPlaca giulty of conspiracy to commit murder and found Barnes guilty of niurder. All three defendants had been charged with murder and conspiracy and therein lies the basis of appeal by defense attorneys, led by prominent defender F. Lee Bailey. Bailey has said that the jury's verdict was inconsistent and may have been a compromise. For the verdict to be consistent, Bailey said, the jurors would have had to find all three defendants guilty or innocent of both charges. However, Bailey, who repre- sented Silas JaynCj '^viewed the verdict as somewhat of a victory. **Murder is a very serious Palestinian guerrilla charge," Bailey said after the Salah Khalaf told verdicts were returned. "Conspiracy is a relatively minor felony. I would call this almost an acquittal."

The report, prepared by League experts, will be discussed Wednesday at a meeting aimed at studying the role of Arab youth in the battle, the Middle East News Agency said. The report stressed the nfeed of an over-all Arab oil strategy, but said this strategy should be part of a general confrontation plan. The report left details of a joint plan to be agreed upon by the Arab governments.

UNIFAX F r Director Will Restore faith' L RALEIGH, N. C. (UPI) - Sen. Sam Ervin, D-N.C, says the naming of William D. Ruckelhaus to replace L. Patrick Gray as acting director of the FBI can "restore confidence" in the agency. Ervin, chairman'of the Senate's select committee probing the Watergate bugging affair, also said that he expects Gray will be summoned to testify before the group in light of reports that Gray destroyed files belonging to E. Howard Hunt, convicted already in the case. •*Rucklehaus is a mighty good man," said Ervin, who was here for unveiling of a bust of naval hero John Paul Jones. * . , *'I have a high opinion of Ruckelshaus," he said. **I think he cart restore confidence in the FBI." The Tar Heel Democrat said he was hopeful hearings on the Watergate affair by his committee could resume May 15. Public reaction to the Watergate, Ervin said, could help congress regain some of its lost power because if the executive casnot keep its own house in order, why it s certain the people of the nation aren't going to be wUling for the executive to take over the powers of congress.

Belfast. The Provisionals declared a truce in Roman Catholic areas of Londonderry to coincide with a religious festival. The truce officially expired at midnight Sunday. British spokesmen assailed the truce as "empty." "Contrary to the IRA promise," a spokesman said, "the so-called week of truce was the most violent in the city truce, but it is obvious nsw their announcement was nothing but an empty promise." The three weekend murders raised the toll in nearly four years of shooting and bombing among minority Catholics, majority Prv>testants and British security forces to 780, among them 209 soldiers and Ulster Defense Regiment militiamen. The last weekend fatality was Royal Marine Pvt. Graham Cox, 19, shot Sunday night in an ambush of an army vehicle that slowed down to cross an anti-speed ramp m the Catholic area New Lodge in Belfast. An 'Other soldier was seriously wounded. "We put up that ramp at the request of New Lodge, which age attacks on civilians from, speeding cars." a British "Residents this year.
