'Zebra'Jury Holds Second Night Session SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ Cloaked in secrecy and unprecedented security, a San Francisco County grand jury has held an unusual second consecutive night session into the Zebra street slayings. Rarely docs the "grand jury meet more than once a week But the jury weighing evident against three men charged in the random slayings held a three-hour hearing Monday nighi and returned again Tuesday night. In both instances, about 20 policemen sealed off City Hall and the unidentified witnesses refused to answer newsmen's questions as they entered Walter Giuhbini, chief assistant district attorney, refused to say how many witnesses have been called or to disclose their identities. 'There was no confirmation that Ihe secret informer whose April 28 meeting with .Mayor Joseph L. Alioto led to the arrests has testified Three black -men--Larry C Green, Z2; J.C. Simon. 29, and Manuel Moore, 29--have been charged with three of the 13 random killings of whites here in the past six months. Thev will enter pleas Thursday Their attorney. Clinton White of Oakland, said they are innocent. Giubbini has refused to say whether the accused men will be, ordered to appear before the grand jury. GAG ORDER He also refused because of a gag order issued last Friday to discuss any aspect of the Zebra case, so named after the "Z" radio channel police have used in their investigation. Judge Agnes O'Brien Smith of Municipal Court issued the order Friday. , Li. William O'Connor, the police department's public affairs officer, meanwhile disputed an article that appeared in Tuesday's editions of the San Francisco Examiner. The story said the arrests of the three men may have been "premature" and may have destroyed months of police work into the killings. O'Connor said the story by columnist Dick Nolan was "substantially false in many of its material facts and totally false in its innuendoes. 1 He said the department "will be in a position to refute the false impression conveyed by this article" when the gag 'order on publicity is lifted. Nolan also said a special 28- man detail of black policemen was keeping suspects under 24- hour surveillance. His sources were not identified. Artcomm TIMES, Wed., May 8, 1*74 A 25 rAVITTEVILlC. Â·Â·KANSAS Interior Issues Plea For Mining On Federal Land WASHINGTON (AP) -- An Interior Department study rms estimated that Ihe nation's reed for coal will increase threefold by the year 2000. To help supply the needed coal, the study proposed Mint the government allow 10 underground coal mines and 31 strip mines on Federal land. "This report Finds no measures available which could stimulate an equivalent production potential of alternative energy sources . . . . " the department said in a review of possible alternatives to increased coal production. The study was based on a forecast that coal production, now around 600 million tons per year, would more than double to about 1.31 billion tons per year by the year 2000. In addition, "A total of 175.8 million tons of federal coal . . . will be needed each year," the two-volume draft study said. "Assuming that 85 per cent of the federal coal produced in 2000 would be extracted by surface mining methods, about 31 surface mines, each producing 5 million tons per year, and 10 underground mines, each producing 2 million tons per year, would be required," it said. Most federal coal is found in some 193,345 square miles of the Rocky Mountain and Northern Great Plains regions, the study said. The projected 175.8 million tons per year oF Federal coal in the year 2000 would represent about 13.4 per cent of the na- tion's.total projected coal production. On Monday assistant Interior Secretary Royston Hughes urged that coal production be more than tripled by 1585. However, the Interior study gave no consideration to such a rapid expansion. The study also noted that underground cool mining has the highest disahling-injury rate of any major industry, while strip mining ruins its landscape at least as long as the mine is operating.
