The jury began deliberations Thursday, fout were unable to reach a verdict. On trial are Charles Zemater, 44, of Chicago and Raymond Auler, 51, of Milwaukee, Wis. A third defendant, Craig Poulter, J24, was dismissed last week for lack of evidence. A fourth man, Robert Monoghan, 30, has pleaded guilty and a fifth man, James Cotton, is still a fugitive. Planning A Trip? During the nine - day trial, two women testified they had been lured to Vietnam as entertainers, then threatened and forced into prostitution at a Saigon nightclub and villa called "The Office." Two other women testified they had gone willingly to work as prostitutes. Before the case was sent to the jury Thursday, the prosecution called the defendants "society's seedier characters." Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas G. Dent told the jury they were called before pimps and prostitutes "not because we chose to, but because these were the people the defendants chose to associate with."

"Where they got that saw is the $64,000 question," Dieterich said. "They haven't had a visitor since they've been here and all we can figure out is they must have gotten it somehow from outside." Dieterich said Julius Brewer, 32, Colorado Springs, Colo., and Charles Costa, 23, Whittier, Calif., made their first escape attempt June 11 through the building's attic They were recaptured soon after in Cam den, 111. — NOTICE — HODGES SUPPER CLUB In Williamsfield, III.
