Says trial unfair
United Press International
Chisholm, D-N.YM declared Tuesday that
J oan Little could not get a fair trial in eastern
North Carolina because of the "worst sort of
prejudices against black women" there.
Mrs. Chilsholm asked U.S. Attorney
General Edward Levy to intervene on Miss
Mrs. Chilsholm told reporters here:
"There are very few black people of either
sex called to serve on juries on these (eastern
North Carolina) counties. So this can really
hurt Joan who lives in a region where many,
many Caucasian people hold the worst sort of
prejudices against black women."
In Washington, N.C., Attorneys for the
accused murderess asserted Tuesday that the
method used to select the grand jury that
indicted her systematically excluded blacks
and poor people.
Marvin D. Miller, who played a similar
role in the trial of the rebellious Attica prison
inmates, told the court that tax and voting
records used to form the jury pool were
Miller, from Alexandria, Va., argued that
since blacks and the poor pay
proportionately fewer taxes and votes less
frequently, they appear less often on the jury
To bolster his point, Miller called Mrs.
Donna Cherry, who drew up the jury list
from which the grand jury that indicted Miss
Little was chosen, to stand to testify that she
used only the tax and voter rolls.

South Vietnam's air force shelled
United Press International
S A IGON Communist gunners,
wheeling mortars and long-range artillery to
within 30 miles of Saigon, bombarded
South Vietnam's major air base Tuesday and
grounded more than half the country's jet
Two government planes that did get off
the artillery battered runways, a pair of A37
Dragonfly jets, were downed by Communist
ground-to-air SA7 missiles and their
crewmen killed near Ben Tranh, 36 miles
southwest of Saigon.
The bombardment of Bien Hoa air base 14
miles north of Saigon and the downing of the
planes indicated Communist forces had
pushed toward the capital a dangerous array
of weaponry artillery with a range of 17
miles and SAM missiles that can cripple the
government's air force, vital to any defense
The Communist forces that attacked Bien
Hoa bypassed the besieged privincial capital
of Xuan Loc, 38 miles northeast of Saigon,
where fighting has raged for a week. M ilitary
strategists said the attack against the air base
might signal the start of a major drive against
that keystone of Saigon's defenses.
The artillery Russian-made 130mm
cannon-hit Bien Hoa with 20 shells Monday
night and a second barrage, at least partly
from mortars, was launched Tuesday,
military sources said. The shells damaged the
base's longest runway and gounded the
government's workhorse F5 Freedom
The smaller A37s, however, could use a
shorter runway and continued their
bombing missions against North Vietnamese
and Viet Cong forces tightening a ring
The shelling of Bien Hoa, which occupies
a vital spot on Saigon's northern defense
perimeter, marked the closest use yet made
of the long-barreled 1 30mm guns around the

Panel considers evacuation fund
United Press International
WASHINGTON The Senate Foreign
Relations Committee Tuesday completed a
first draft of legislation to give President
Ford a $200-million South Vietnam
emergency fund, mainly for evacuating
Americans and some South Vietnamese.
The legislation would also allow U.S.
troops to be used to safeguard the.
Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger,
predicted the legislation, on lines worked out ;
at an unusual White House meeting Monday
between President Ford and the entire
committee, would be acceptable to the
The draft legislation, which committee
chairman Sen. John Sparkman described as
"tentative," will be sent to the White House
for study and the committee was to consider
it again Wednesday. 5
Kissinger, in a 2Vi hour appearance before,
the Senate Appropriations Committee
Tuesday, also pressed for an additional $722
million in military aid for the Saigon
government which he said would run out of
ammunition by early June.
"If Congress does not approve our request
then chaotic conditions will develop quite
rapidly," Kissinger said, echoing
administration warnings that Saigon had a
chance to survive the Communist onslaught
with additional American aid but would
inevitable fall without it.
Sen. Jacob Javits, R-N.Y., said the
general contingency fund was envisaged by
the committee as "a global fund" to
underwrite the evacuation of U.S. citizens
and some other nationals.

PHNOM PEN H Communist-led rebels
bombarded Phnom Penh from two sides
Tuesday. The government's best army
division destroyed its own supplies and
retreated five miles to try to protect the
capital in the dying hours of its defense.
Military sources said the rebels were a bare
10-minute drive from the heart of the city.
Collapse appeared imminent.
Khmer Rouge insurgents swept into the
northwestern suburbs and hammered the
eastern fringes with barrages of artillery and
rock fire, touching off fires and turning
residents into refugees.
A message on the UP1 leased news wire
between Phnom Penh and Saigon-Hong
