Melvin R. Laird said Tuesday that Soviet
and Communist Chinese advances in
long-range nuclear missiles, including the
possibility of an operational Chinese
ICBM in two to four years, demand full
deployment of the Safeguard missile
In an annual "military posture" report
to - Congress, Laird disclosed that
President Nixon had ordered preliminary
construction work at a fourth antibailistic
Mils face Assembly
RALEIGH Two bills to abolish the
death penalty in North Carolina were
introduced in the General Assembly
Tuesday, but one would apply only to
persons under 21.
A bill to abolish death for all capital
charges, including murder, rape,
kidnaping, arson and burglary, and make
life terms mandatory was introduced in
the House by Rep. Henry Frye,
The bill would also commute to life
the death sentences for all persons now
on death row. It would also leave to the

SAIGON-U.S. military sources
claimed great success Tuesday for the
offensive against the Ho Chi Minh Trail in
Laos, announcing that South Vietnamese
troops supported by American warplanes
had set back North Vietnam's capability
to wage war by at least five months.
South Vietnamese troops, who began
the Laos campaign Feb. 8, were reported
to have captured and destroyed about
14,000 tons of war material
ammunition, weapons and food. This is
5,300 tons more than the amount seized
in the two-month U.S.-South Vietnamese
offensive in Cambodia last spring.
"It is difficult to evaluate exactly what
this all means," on U.S. source said of the
Laos push. "But the indications are that
this qis Ka :-severe' -'setback for1.-the
Communists. Within the terms of what
American military authorities said about
the meaning of the Cambodian operation,
then what has so far been discovered in
Laos would put the Communist war
effort at least five months back."
Some of the achievement of the Laos
offensive was dimmed Tuesday by a
report that a third accidental strike by
U.S. aircraft on South Vietnamese troops
.in Laos in three days killed one South
Vietnamese marine and wounded 11.
I The latest incident happened Monday
when U.S. fighter-bombers attacking
Communist troops within 50 yards of
South Vietnamese positions dropped one
bomb on a South Vietnamese bunker.
The other accidental raids occurred last

whether a person serving life would be
placed on parole.
The other bill, sponsored by Sen. Jyles
Coggins, D-Wake, would only abolish the
death penalty for persons under 21 at the
time the capital crimes were committed.
A death penalty bill, endorsed by Gov.
Bob Scott, failed by a 68-38 vote in the
General Assembly two years ago. But
Frye said "We feel we have a much better
chance to get the bill passed this time."
Frye said statistics bear out that the
death penalty "is not a deterrent to

South of the South Vietnamese
offensive, on Laos' Bolovens Plateau,
Laotian troops reported killing at least
250 North Vietnamese soldiers Monday
and early Tuesday in hurling back two
large scale attacks on a hilltop position.
The Bolovens Plateau contains several
branches of the Ho Chi Minh Trail leading
into South Vietnam and Cambodia.
Communist troops have been trying to
take control of it for months.
ASPERMONT, Tex.-The sun shone
bright over the dry fields of grain
sorghum and a dusty wind rustled the
prickly pear, prairie grass and
tumbleweeds across Stonewall County
Tuesday, but Homer Berry kept the faith.
"I can do it," he said wita a grin and a
pat on the smoke-pot he pulls behind his
red pickup truck.
"Just keep your eyes on the sky."
Berry, 65, is a rainmaker and time was
running out on him. He signed a 30-day
contract with local farmers to bring five
inches of rain at $2,000 an inch to the
405 W. Franklin
He announced a new strategy of
"realistic deterrence," based on increased
arms aid for U.S. allies and reduction of
American forces committed overseas.
He urged greater spending on research
and development, particularly on a new
manned bomber and a long-range
submarine missile fleet, warning that
"towards the mid-to-late 1970s, we may
find that we have no technological lead at
all or worse may lag several years
crime ana inai u siaies nave auuuueu
He said in states where the death
penalty still exists, "It has been used
primarily against the poor, the ignorant
and the minorities. It is not administered
fairly, in practice."
Coggins, admitting he was unaware
that Frye was also introducing a bill to
abolish capital punishment, said he did
not support total abolishment because
"there are times when it is well-justified."
He used an example of when a
pregnant woman is beaten and murdered
or when small children are murdered.
Coggins said "teen-agers are more apt
to do things on the spur of the moment,
without premeditation, in a childish rage,
you might say."
He said his bill falls in line with his
previous thinking on lowering the voting
age. "I thought young young people did
not have the judgment and experience"
that adults did.
The senator said basically he feels
teens are apt to show a "lack of prior
judgment and recognition of the
seriousness of the effect" of a crime.
Under Frye's bill, no one sentenced to
life imprisonment could be paroled unless
90 days public notice was published in
three statewide circulation newspapers in
If parole was recommended, then the
governor would have the final decision on,
whether to approve or disapprove the.
Frye said he felt the parole provision
was the most important aspect of his bill,
and could determine if it gets adequate

behind the Soviets in some critical areas
by that time."
Laird reported that Russia will have
added 110 land- and submarine-based
missiles to its arsenal by mid-1971, for a
total of 1,900 compared to 1,710 for the
United States. But he said the United
States still will outnumber the Russians in
totals of bombs and warheads.
After he submitted bis report to the
House Armed Services Committee, its
chairman, Rep. F. Edward Herbert, D-Ia.,
said Congress must give the Pentagon
everything it needs or "the Soviets will be
ahead of us in almost every phase by
1975 in delivery, in megatonnage."
In the unclassified version of his
lengthy report, Laird said of the Chinese
"The start of testing has not yet been
confirmed, but a reduced range test of an
ICBM may have occurred in late 1970."
Pentagon officials, referring to details
in the secret version of the report, said a
2,000-mile flight of a missile without
warhead which many experts are
convinced was an ICBM test occurred
within mainland China las last year.
The average range of an ICBM is 5,000
miles or more, but the Chinese flight was
believed to have been held deliberately to
2,000 miles to keep it within China's

RALEIGH Declining to take a
definite stand on how to pursue a medical
school at East Carolina University, the
ECU Board of Trustees Tuesday directed
that a study be made of a proposed
one-year training program in conjunction
with the medical school at the University
of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
The State Board of Higher Education
last month proposed that East Carolina
devise a one-year medical training
program beginning the 1971-73 biennium
with students finishing their last three
years at the University of North Carolina.
Gov. Bob Scott supported the Board

FT. BENNTNG, Ga.-The prosecution
closed out its case against Lt. William L.
Calley Jr. Tuesday after calling a witness
who contradicted Calley's story that
Capt. Ernest L. Medina ordered the
slaughter at My Lai.
Medina, who also faces courtmartial
for the My Lai incident, will testify here
Wednesday as one of the witnesses called
by the six officer jury. He said he would
offer "direct refutation" of Calley's
"We've nothing further," the
prosecutor, Capt. Aubrey M. Daniel told
the court at 2:46 p.m. EST on the 44 th
day of one of the longest court martials in
but said he favored an eventual four-year
medical school in Greenville.
East Carolina officials had been
pushing for a two-year program to begin
next year with eventual development of a
four-year medical school.
An ECU Board of Trustees member
said Tuesday it would depend on the
study whether the board would ask the
present General Assembly to appropriate
operation and construction funds for a
two-year medical school.
The board passed a resolution that
said, "The Board of Trustees do not, at
the present time, feel sufficient
information is available for them to
recommend a definitive course of action
.to insure that a program in medical
education is begun at East Carolina
University in the 1971-73 biennium
which would be in the interests of the
state and the university."
The board directed its Executive
Committee, ECU President Leo W.
Jenkins, Dr. Edwin W. Monroe, Director
of Health Affairs, and Dr. Wallace R.
Wooles, dean of medicine, "to take
appropriate action, in light of developing
information, to insure the most
productive program possible in medical
education is begun at East Carolina."

Galley's Chilian counsel, Georgs W.
Latimer, said the defense also had
presented all its regular witnesses, but
reserved the right to request that the jury
also call Maj. Gen. Samuel W. Koster,
who commanded the American Division
at My Lai.
Indications are th3t after the jury
witnesses are heard a recess of several
days will be called while jury instructions
are prepared. Both sides will then sum up
their cases, and the trial likely will go to
the jury the week after next.

LaCross had a job exactly Like Calley 's
at My Lai in that both were platoon
leaders and attended the same briefings.
Calley, 27, is on trial for his life for
alledgedly killing 102 villagers at My Lai.
Calley testified Medina told him to
"waste" the villagers because they were
delaying him on what was to have been a
lightning sweep through the village.
"Did Capt. Medina give any
instructions to kill every man, woman
and child in that village?" the prosecutor,
Daniel, asked LaCross while quizzing Jum
concerning a platoon leader's briefing
prior to the My Lai operation.
"No, sir," LaCross replied.
