"Jock" Yablonski and his family. The prosecution prom ised to make "at least one more arrest. We do not intend to stop with this conviction," said Special Prosecutor Richard Spriague.

Police hurled tear gas at rock-throwing demonstrators in a 45-minute melee along Ber nardo O'Higgins Avenue, the capital's main street. At the height of the fighting, troops armed with submachine guns and wearing gas masks ran onto the street to guard the entrances to the Defense Ministry, which fronts on O'Higgins Avenue.

"Whatever action we take will speak for itself," he said. Pass was accused of converting a $20,000 union organizing loan from Boyle into a murder fund by having .the money kicked back from Tennessee and Kentucky coal miners in District 19, of which he had been financial secretary. He also represented the district on the UMW International Execu tive Board. The conviction was delivered by a jury of seven men and five women after five hours of deliberation. The trial lasted 15 days, including two hours of defense testimony. Head Held High Pass, a stocky, balding man, stared with his head held high as each of the polled jurors said "guilty of murder in the first degree." As he was led from the nearly empty court­ room he waved to several fanily members, including his wife and son. "We hayenU given up," Mrs. Beulah Mae Pass said. "We know he isn't guilty." Defense attorney Harold Gon dolman said he would appeal the verdict "by Friday." Three other men, including former field organizer William J. Prater, have been convicted of first degree murder in the case. A woman and two men, one of them a former UMW 'local president, have confessed. None has been sentenced on state charges. Prater, who wrote a confession the day after his March 26 conviction, was the key witness against Piass, his longtime colleague. Prater pleaded guilty to a federal charge of interfering with Yablonski's civil rights by having him killed and was sentenced to life imprisonment.

Pentagon Says Communists Building Vietnam Air Base c WASHINGTON (UPI) - Pen tagon officials report the North Vietnamese are building five air \ bases in Communist-held areas of South Vietnam which could be used for military operations. The Communists, Pentagon officials said, are justifying the bases as civilian airstrips but apparently are equipping them for military transport flights >and — potentially — jet fighter operations. So far, the bases have raised ittle concern in Washington. U.S. officials see them more as a Communist attempt- to demonstrate ownership of a "going, organized administered arm" in preparation for setting up a provisional government than as a direct military threat. American officials also discount reports received from the field Tuesday thiat a North Vietnamese MIG19 made are reconnaissance flight over South Vietnamese city of Quang Tri and that two other MIG flights have crossed government-held territory since the Jan. 27 cease-fire. while Laird was secretary of Defense. The News said that John Dressendorfer, a high Pentagon official, "actually made phone calls on Ball's behalf to the highest levels of the SEC."
