AND BEAR By George Lichiy "Small wonder we all wind up as defense plant vice presidents after we retire . .. The Services never taught us any practical skills!" Italian lawyers fight Marine's extradition United Press International ROME — Italian defense lawyers will fight any move to extradite Raphael Minichiello to the United States and plan to ask for psychiatric examination of the AWOL Marine who hijacked a U.S. commercial jetliner at gunpoint, legal sources said yesterday. The request for the examination was expected to lay the basis for a defense claim that Minichiello was insane when he hijacked a Trans World Airlines Boeing 707 over California and forced the crew to fly him 6,700 miles to his native H&ly. The 20 - year - old Vietnam war veteran from Seattle was captured by Italian police in the hills south of Rome last Saturday to end his 26-hour flight across two continents and an ocean. His elderly father, Luigi, who lives in southern Italy, has named lawyers Mario Siniscalchi of Naples and Nicola Lombard! of Rome to defend his son. They are expected to see Minichiello, being held in Rome's Queen of'Heavens Jail today for the first time. . „ , ; Neither could be reached yesterday but their strategy •was outlined by close'legal sources. The United States last Saturday asked that Minichiello be handed over on a warrant for his arrest. He could face a death penalty if convicted on charges of air piracy in the United States. Italian assistant prosecutor Massimo Carli, however, on Sunday and Monday filed eight charges that could bring Minichiello 30 years imprisonment here if convicted by Italian courts. Legal experts said the filing of formal charges re-, moved the possibility of Minichiello being handed over to the United States on an arrest warrant. They said he could be returned only after formal extradition proceedings. Carli said Monday he was certain Minichiello would be tried first in Italy. A U.S. Embassy spokesman said yesterday no formal notification of this had been received thus far from the Italian government. Even if he is tried and convicted here, Minichiello could be extradited to the United States after serving his prison term. He also faces a court martial at Camp Pendleton, Calif., on a charge of breaking into a post exchange.

Antihijack net tested United Press International WASHINGTON - Federal aviation officials said yesterday a new hijacker detection system used at certain airline passenger terminals has shown gratifyning results in its first three weeks. Although no "hard - core suspects" have been turned up by the screening system, officials said, its workability and effectiveness are becoming evident. The report came from Nathaniel H. Goodrich, general counsel of the Federal Aviation Administration and Dr.H. L. Reighhard, deputy FFA air surgeon and head of a task force on airline hijacking. In interviews and in testimony before a House commerce subcommittee, the two said three weeks of use at certain undisclosed loading points for Eastern Air Lines had strengthened their confidence the system works and will ultimately lend itself to wider use. As described by Reighard, the detection of potential hijackers is accomplished in two steps performed without the awareness of passengers. First, airline ticketing and boarding personnel compare the observable behavior Of individual passengers with a "behavioral profile" psychologists have drawn up of the typical hijacker. Second, passengers are electronically surveyed by a device that detects metal masses the size of a weapon, but is unaffected by smaller objects such as belt buckles or watches. A passenger who flunks both tests is taken aside and searched by a U.S. marshal, Reighard said, but so far this has not happened in the Eastern screening — and there hae been no hijackings. said, there have been no pas- catch without question the person with the characteristics of the hijacker and who is carrying a weapon," Reighard said. 6 orphans to know stick-togetherness Associated Press ARLINGTON, Minn. Somehow, says , 15-year-old Kathy Can-oil, she and her five younger brothers and sisters orphaned by a traffic accident are going to remain together as a family. Mr. and Mrs. John Carroll of Arlington died in a collision Monday night near Dawson, Minn. Also killed were the Carrolls' close friends, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Rausch- endorfer of Arlington, and the driver of the second vehicle, Maurice Kallhoff, 30 of Dawson. The Rauschendorfers left four children, the youngest still living at home. All of the Carroll children are young and remain at home. They are Susan, 13; Cindy, 11; Danny, 10; Duane, 8; Douglas, 7, and Kathy, the eldest, who assumed leadership of the family. "We are going to stick together," the determined Kathy said yesterday. "But we don't know what will happen next." The Carrolls and Rauschen- dorfers frequently went on hunting and fishing expeditions together. Last Thursday the two couples left for Wyoming to hunt deer. They had planned to return home Monday night, the Carrolls told their children in a telephone call Saturday. "They said they were all having a real good time when they called us," Kathy said. "They added though that they couldn't wait to get home." Mrs. Carroll's 33rd birthday was last Saturday. The children planned to celebrate the birthday upon their parents' return home. "We had a birthday cake ready for Mother," Kathy said. "We had it prepared for her last night." The Carrolls and Rauschen- dorfers were about 100 miles from home when their pickup truck-camper collided with the semi-truck loaded with soybeans and driven by Kallhoff. Just before the vehicles came together, the highway patrol said, the pickup truck hit a deer. NOMINATION OKAYED WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Judiciary committee has approved the nomination of Paul J.
