Qalesburg Register-Mail GALESBURG, ILL., TUES., JULY 3, 1973 SEC. 2 PAGE 13 CalleyAttorneys' Request Denied WASHINGTON (UPI) - Attempts by attorneys for Lt. William L. Calley Jr. to make the government disclose any White House involvement in the investigation of the My Lai massacre have been turned down by the highest court of military law, The U.S. Court of Military Appeals ruled Monday that the attorneys presented a case that was "too insubstantial and tenuously founded" July 18 when they tried ito force disclosure of the role played in the My Lai probe by White House investigators John J. Caulfield and Anthony F. Ulasewicz. Both Linked Both Caulfield and Ulasewicz have been linked to the Watergate cover-up. Galley's defense team presented the military appeals court with published references that Caulfield and Ulasewicz interviewed participants in the 1968 My Lai massacre on behalf of the White House "to determine if the first accounts of the atrocity were correct."

'One Horse Fire' Unchecked In Fourth Day of Destruction Capt. J. Huston Gordon, Calley's principal military lawyer, said at the time he did not know what would be found in the records "because we didn't know about their (Caul' field and Ulasewicz's) involvement before." 20-Year Sentence Calley is serving a 20-year sentence for murdering at least 22 civilians at the South Vietnamese hamlet March 16, 1968. The court, in rejecting the request, said Galley's attorneys had not indicated the new material had any bearing on evidence admitted at CaMey's trial or that it might have resulted in a more favorable verdict cr sentence, The court said in addition that the defense lawyers did not claim the alleged White House investigations in any way violated either the Constitution or the Uniform Code of Military . . .. , , ,* . ... j ustice * Princess Anne views a portrait of herself at an unveiling Defense lawyers said the - ceremony iivthe Mansion House, residence of the Lord Mayor court action had no effect on 0* London.

Calley still is under confinement at the MIAMI (UPI) - Tropical Storm Alice built its strength to 60 miles an hour today and drifted toward Bermuda, where residents were warned to prepare for a possible "direct hit." The season's first tropical storm was located at 6 a.m. EDT near latitude 28.8 north, longitude 65.5 west—about 250 miles south-southwest of Bermuda. Winds Increased Monday night, Alice's winds increased from 50 miles an hour to 60 m.p.h, and the National Hurricane Center in Miami said "environmental conditions favor a slight increase in strength today." The storm was expected to move toward the north of north- northeast at the rate of 10 m.p.h. or less today and tonight. "It's too far away to make a precise track but it conceivably could score a direct hit on Bermuda. But Bermuda is such a small place that the slightest variation would change that prediction," said hurricane forecaster Joe Pelissier. Storm Lingering "This storm is not very well organized and had been linger* ing at just below storm strength. I expect no rapid deepening through today and would be surprised if this became a very strong hurricane," he added. But Pelissier said the storm could still intensify to minimal hurricane force before reaching the Bermuda area Wednesday morning, although he said, "I don't think it will." As is usual with the**8torm and hurricane advisories issued from the National Hurricane Center here, residents ol the resort island of Bermuda' were warned Monday night to keep their radios tuned for latest advisories, and be prepared for possible rough season, heavy rains, and gale winds.

UNIFAX Texas Farmer, Police Battle PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UPI) - "The One Horse Fire," the worst blaze in California this year, burned unchecked into a fourth day today, flaming through mountain timber country and into a scenic state park. With more than 10,000 charred acres of forest and brush land behind it, the fire moved ahead on a four-mile- wide front in the-- fringes of Mount San Jacinto State Park, six miles northwest of this popular Southern California resort city. The state Division of Forestry and U.S. Forest Service fielded an army of 1,500 men—and the six women of the "Morningstar Blue's" from Fresno, Calif., an all female squad that is a rarity in the virtually all male world of forest firefighting teams. Because of the rough mountain terrain into which the fire burned—steep slopes, peaks reaching 6,500 feet and more, and cliffs up to 500 feet—the firefighters were chasing the blaze in a fleet of- 12 helicopters. They used ropes to clamber down cliff faces to get at the spearheads of flame. Started by Fireworks The fire started in dry brush land Saturday near One Horse Springs, from which it took its name. Authorities said the blaze, which began in the Morongo Indian Reservation, was started by fireworks. Three boys were questioned by sheriff's deputies and released Forest Service officials estimated the fire had consumed more than one million board feet of timber since it got into the pine forests at higher elevations, and done $359,000 damage to timber, watershed and equipment. They reported about 50 firefighters had been treated for minor injuries, including sprained ankles, cuts, small burns and poison oak swellings. DENNING, Tex. (UPI) Van Lacy, a 67-year-old retired farmer, killed his common law wife Monday and, barricaded within his East Texas farmhouse, fought a 55-minute gunbattle with, police, officers said. The county sheriff, a deputy, a highway patrolman, an ambulance driver and a friend of the deputy were wounded. "We don't know what got .into him," Chief Deputy S. E. Hearell said. "He's pretty old. He doesn't do much but live out there and collect welfare." The first hint of trouble came when someone called the San Augustine County sheriff's of­ fice at 8 a.m. to report a shooting at the Lacy farm, eight miles west of San Augustine and 16 miles west of the Louisiana border. County Sheriff John Hoyt sent deputies Richard Davis and Hearell to investigate. A friend of Davis', Horace Roger Williams, went along for the ride. The deputies arrived at the house, and Davis was sent to cover the back door as Hearell walked to the front door. Williams was told to remain in the car. "As I went to the front door, I heard a -shotgun blast," Hearell said. "I saw Davis EPA Study Shows Cars Chief Polluters of Water WASHINGTON (UPI) - A study carried out for the Environmental Protection Agency concludes that cars are primary polluters of water. Biospherics, Inc., of Rock ville, Md., an independent research firm, said in a report issued Monday <by the EPA that pollutants spread on roads by autos befoul rivers and streams almost as much as municipal sewage. The pollutants include asbestos from brake linings, rubber from tires, zinc from oil and tires, lead from gasoline, and nitrogen and phosphorus com- the pounds. Rainstorms carry pollutants into waterways. Biospherics worked for a year gathering data for the report. Its technicians vacuumed Washington's Capital Beltway to analyze debris. The firm said it concluded road runoff is an important, heretofore unknown, source of Potomac River pollution. "Altogether, when the data for the Washington area is projected to the entire country, roadway pollution from cars becomes a critical national problem," the study said. HELSINKI (UPI) - Thirty- five nations of the East and West opened the European Security Conference today to seek ways to turn the dying cold war into a warm era of peace. "A new mood of cautious but real hope is abroad throughout the continent," U.N. Secretary General Kurt Waldheim told the 35 foreign ministers gathered in the blue and white concert hall of Helsinki's Finlandia House. He hailed the security conference as a key step toward "the new balance of prudence ... the discernible emergence of an era of negotiation, dialogue and contact." The 35 foreign ministers included Secretary of State William P. Rogers, who said he came "with the blessing of President Nixon." Andrei A. Gromyko of the Soviet Union said that "we are Real Estate Today By DICK ROZYNEK, GRI Realtor Zoning And The land Owner A good community has zoning laws to protect its homeowners. However, zoning is even more important to the buyers of land who are planning to erect a custom-built home ..(or ..a -prefabricated home). Some communities may have zoning lhat will make it impossible for you to build the home you plan. For instance, one community may require a specific amount of acreage for a one-family zone.

There were princes from Lichtenstein, Cardinal Agostino Casaroli, from the Vatican, and a former British earl, Sir Alec Douglas-Home. The talks, the result of seven years of persistent Soviet diplomacy, were expected to last four to eight days. The Western foreign ministers, as they arrived here, said they expected the Soviets to give as much as they get, particularly in the area of "human contacts" —the right of all Europeans to travel, meet each other and read what they want. Rogers and Douglas-Home arrived at the last moment from London where they celebrated Douglas-Home's 70th birthday the night before. Also arriving just before the start were France's Michel Jobert Italy's Giuseppe Medici, West Germany's Walter Scheel and Canada's Mitchell Sharp. Endorse Mandates The ministers will endorse set of mandates—laid out > in preparatory talks here — on human contacts, trade and military security. The documents will then go to diplomat ic experts meeting in Geneva this fall for refining and detailing. The experts' work will be returned to a third stage here for final approval, possibly at a European summit meeting The United States and Cana da were the only non-European nations represented. Finnish President Urho Kek konen opened the conference by telling the delegates that "your talks can, without exaggeration be truly termed historical...the conference that opens today is without precedent in the history of our continent." The conference was believed to . be the biggest European forum since the Congress o Vienna in 1815. Preliminary work on the conference began seven months ago, but Moscow actually! began pressing for such a meeting in 1966. At that time, it wanted Europeans and their Atlantic allies to join the East in a mutual renunciation of force recognition of East Germany and increased trade. A series of documents drawn up in the pre-conference nego tiating agreed on the Russian goals, but also included items sought by the West—including increased or easier exchanges between East and West in such fields as business and human relations. around back clutching his face." Hearell ran around to the back of the house as the farmer ran through the house to the front. He fired once out the window hitting Williams in the head. "About that time the ambulance drove up . around front and Lacy ran out on the front porch and fired right through the passenger side of the window," Hearell said. That blast hit Lonnell Garner, 45, the ambulance driver, in the arm. "Some other deputies showed up along with the DPS officers and the battle, began," Hearell said. Among the Reinforcements Among the reinforcements were Sheriff Hoyt and Texas Department of Public Safety Patrolman Doyle Pittman. "He (Lacy) started blazing away with that bolt action shotgun at everyone," Hearell said. "That's when the sheriff caught a blast in the face and where Patrolman Pittman got hit. "Finally after about an hour, Lacy pitched the shotgun out on the road and gave up." Hoyt, Davis and Williams were taken to hospitals in Shreveport, La. Hoyt, wounded in the left eye, was in satisfactory condition. Davis also was in satisfactory condition with wounds in the face. Williams, wounded in the mouth, was in serious condition.
