> Think It Through E. F. HITTON THE GENERAL AND IIIS GENERALS A big bully wouldn’t likely want to pick a duel with a peace- lo\ing chap who wasn't threatening him, even if the bully knew he had the best shooting irons, and was sure he would win, provided he also knew he was going to get badly shot up himself, and might get one right between the eyes.

The burglar may think he has a pretty sure thing in a midnight attack, but he doesn’t fancy the chance of getting buckshot in his lace. I don’t blame the generals. They are experts, and doing their duty. We should listen to them. But it’s possible that Ike knows the overall jigsaw' puzzle better than any one of them.

Jury Reports Near Violence In Finch Trial LOS ANGELES <AP> — Wrangling by jurors in the Finch murder trial almost erupted into violence as the seven women and five men deliberated to a bitter, exhausting deadlock. This was the report today of two members of the panel—one a woman who said that at one point a male juror threatened to throw her out a window of the locked jury room. The jury was dismissed Saturday after failing to agree whether Dr. R. Bernard Finch. 42. and his mistress. Carole Tregoff. 23. had plotted and killed with a bullet-in-the-back the doctor’s estranged wife. Barbara Jean Finch. The wealthy surgeon and his onetime receptionist broke into sobs when the jurors announced they were deadlocked. They face another trial. A date will be set Thursday. While all seemed outwardly serene during the eight days of deliberations, reports of shouts, insults and near-violence came from two jurors—Louis Werner! and Genevieve Lang. Mrs. I^ang Threatened Mrs. Lang, 34. a secretary, said ! a male juror turned the locked jury room into a panic Friday when he shouted at her: "I’m going to pick you up and throw you out the wind,ow.” She said the juror, whom she ’ did not identify, started “to pick up the jury table—-he started to take off his coat—I was scared. “One woman ran for the buzzer and buzzed for the baliffs. Another screamed hysterically at the door. It was terrifying to realize we were locked in that way.” After baliffs quitod the dispute, Mrs. Lang said: "I want off the jury.” However, she stayed on the; panel and the next day they an-' nounced the deadlock—10 to 2 to convict the balding surgeon of second-degree murder and 8-4 to acquit his pretty mistress. Voted Convictions Werner, 66, retired sales manager, identified the two male jurors standing between Finch and a five-year-to life prison sentence as Dolres Jaimez, 33, and Eddie Lindsay. 28. both Los Angelos postal employes. “We voted our convictions,” said Jaimez. "Basically, the other members of the jury just didn’t accept other people’s views and argued irrationally,” said Lindsay, a gro. Finch and Carole remain county jail. Their attorneys they will ask for their release bail. The district attorney says will oppose such a move.
