ROCKY TELLS JURY OF ATTICA UPRISING WARSAW, N.Y. (AP) _ Vice-President Nelson Rockefeller, saying he was "just doing my duty," testified Friday before a grand jury investigating the 1971 Attica prison revolt. Rockefeller, who was governor of New York at the time of the inmate rebellion, entered the Wyoming .County Courthouse in this western New York village as 200 onlookers, including about 25 protesters, pressed against police barricades. The demonstrators chanted: "Close the Attica murders, make Rocky to the time; the grand jury is a cover-up, for Rockefeller crime." Critics' Charges Some .critics of the state's handling of the Attfca revolt, which claimed 43 lives, have blamed Rockefeller for the bloodshed on the final day of the Sept. 9-13, 1971 uprising, when 39 persons died in a state- ordered police assault. Asked how he felt about the events of four years ago, Rockefeller said, "Looking in retrospect, we. should have gone right through in the beginning. They (the inmates) didn't have any arms or guns then." "I'm just doing my duty," he said when asked the reason for his grand jury appearance. What the panel wanted to ask Rockefeller has not been disclosed. A State Police helicopter hov- -rod overhead, and Secret Service agents spread through the •?a as Rockefeller arrived in Warsaw, only a few miles from Attica state prison. He also has been criticized for refusing to go to the prison to take a hand in peace negotiations before police stormed the rebel-held section of the prison. Two Juries ^ Two grand juries have had roles in investigating the Attica revolt. The original grand jury returned indictments against 62 Attica inmates on charges ranging from murder and kid- naping to coercion and assault for acts allegedly committed during the rebellion. The second grand, jury, the one before which Rockefeller appeared, was formed to investigate any wrongdoing by police and guards during and after the assault. S«t., Aug.

U3. District Judge William C. Hanson delayed sentencing Joseph Patrick Carey and Charles Eldon Gould until after a pre-sentencing investigation is completed. They are free on $5,000 bond each. The two charges each carry a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison, or $25,000 fine, or both. Deliberated 10 Hours The jury of eight women and four men deliberated about 10 hours before giving its verdict about 3:30 eluding a Monday. The 'jurors p.m. trial Friday, con- that started are believed to have been deadlocked, 6 to 6, for much of the time. Some 20 to 25 votes were taken. Carey, 29,. of Booneville, and Gould, 27, of Des Moines, were indicted in connection with the smuggling of '2V4 pounds of cocaine from Colombia tq the United States last May. Pleaded Guilty . , David Keith Miller, 26, of Altoona also was indicted on the same charges. He pleaded guilty last week and is awaiting sentencing. Miller and his sister, Barbara Ann Kenworthy, 20, of Des Moines — named as co-conspirator but not a defendant here — were the principal prosecution witnesses, Asst. U.S. Atty. George Perry told the jury that Mrs. Kenworthy has received assurance from the U.S. attorney in Miami, Fla. — where she faces charges similar to those filed against Miller, Carey and Gould — that a recommendation for 5 years probation will be made to the sentencing judge for her truthful testimony here. ( Hollowed-out Shoes Mrs. Kenworthy testified she carried the cocaine from Colombia in two pairs of hollowed-out shoes. She was arrested in Miami last May 17 and agreed to deliver a substitute substance to her brother and Gould in Des Moines May 19. At the time of the arrests, U.S. Atty. Allen Donielson called it the largest cocaine case ever in Iowa and a federal drug agent estimated the cocaine had a street value of between $200,000 and $2 million, depending on the quantities in which it was sold. In closing arguments, Raymond J. Gazzo, attorney for Dr." Michael Gould, said Mrs. Kenworthy Adams, chief of emergency services at Broadlawns Polk County Hospital in Des Moines, and Iowa Highway Patrol Capt. Ted D. Godfrey of Des Moines. told several versions of smuggling the cocaine until she found one that satisfied federal officials.

Carey, argued that Mrs. Kenworthy, a "frightened person, threatened with 30 years in prison" had a "sweetheart arrangement, master-slave thing" to testify as the prosecution desired.

Kissinger sees Sinai pact signing before Congress acts on U.S. role JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (AP)|part of the peacekeeping oper- — Secretary of State Henry A. \ ation. Mansfield has said he sres the prospect of another Vietnam-type involvement in the- making. And has declared "One Vietnam is one too many." Israeli officials are pained by the comparison. "Such a parallel is misleading," says Israeli Foreign Minister Yigal Allon. "We have Kissinger said Friday night that Israel and Egypt will sign a Sinai agreement before Congress acts on the use of American civilians in surveillance posts. Kissinger said after meeting with Israeli negotiators -for 8V4 hours that he was aiming to have the two sides initial the pact early next week and signing could come a few days[later. Israel Fullback Under the accord, Israel would stage a broad withdrawal giving up the Gidi and Mitla mountain passes and the Abu Rudeis oilfield in return .for still unspecified political and diplomatic concessions from Egypt. Until now U.S. officials had given the impression that the Ford administration would seek congressional approval before the signing of an agreement that would interpose U.S. technicians between the separated armies. The U.S. officials have said they anticipated some critical debate and "no wild enthusiasm" but eventual consent.

The U.S. technicians working in the early warning stations, which will be within the United Nations buffer, will be helping both sides _ the Israelis and the Egyptians. "They (the Americans) win not fight, but their presence will furnish the area with political stability," Allon said. Others in Israel are not so sure. They can be divided into two factions: those who oppose the new Sinai pact outright and those who believe that an American presence in the region is not in the best interests of Israel or the United States. Women's Group A women's group has taken fhe offensive by writing U.S. Congressmen and urging them to vote against the posting of any Americans in Sinai.
