THE DAILYTAR HEEL
WASHINGTON-Free trade advocates,
fighting a seemingly futile battle against
strong protectionist sentiment, demanded
to know Thursday where President Nixon
stood on the measure they claimed could
touch off an international trade war.
'The President will make a decision"
, once Congress finishes work on the bill,
replied House Republican Leader Gerald
R. Ford, R-Mich.. Nixon has threatened
to veto the bill if the final version is laden
with quotas other than on textiles, which
sources confirmed Thursday that
President Nixon is considering replacing
three cabinet members, particularly
Interior Secretary Walter J. Hickel, as
part of a post-election house cleaning.
The other two department chiefs
expected to quit around year's end are
Treasury Secretary David M. Kennedy
and Agriculture Secretary Clifford M.
FT. HOOD, Tex.-Sgt. David Mitchell,
tears falling' from his cheeks onto two
rows of combat medals clipped to his
chest, testified Thursday he did not shoot
anyone the day the Army claim
American troops slaughtered Vietnamese
civilians at My Lai.
His attorneys then rested their defense
case for the 30-year-old Louisiana Negro,
the first U.S. soldier to stand trial for the
alleged massacre March 16, 1968.
1 '"I've been thinking this over for a year
;now, and I'm still not sure what
happened and who was in my squad that
day," Mitchell said, choking back, tears.
I " "But I am positive that I did no shoot
anyone. I know what I did and what I did

But the President has never said how
he feels about the bill written by the
House Ways and Means Committee and
Rep. Donald Fraser, D-Minn., said, "I was
hoping the President would offer his
leadership to the nation and to the
Congress on this bill."
The measure the House was
considering would impose quotas on
textile and shoe imports, freeze oil
import quotas by law, provide tax breaks
for U.S. exporters and liberalize relief for
import-injured American firms.
The mid-term elections gave Nixon a
chance to protect his political flanks
against criticism, settle old scores and
reward losing Republican candidates by
making high-echelon personnel changes
for the next two years.
It has been an open secret for months
that the White House wants Hickel's scalp
for a public display of disloyalty that has
never been forgiven. That was his letter to
Nixon, leaked to the press, imploring the
President to heed the voice of young
people who then were protesting the U.S.
intervention in Cambodia.
Among those in contention for
Hickel's job is Rep. Rogers C. B. Morton
of Maryland, who is reported to be
unhappy over a lack of influence at the
White House as Republican national
chairman. If Morton makes a move, the
GOP chairmanship may go to White
House counselor Robert Finch, a trusted
Nixon political adviser.
Hickel, the millionaire former
governor of Alaska, has said he would
quit only if fired. His earliest chance for
elective office would be the 1972 House
Kennedy, at 65 the oldest member of
the cabinet, does not have particularly
good relations with Congress and is
infrequently outgunned by other
economic policy advisers to the President.
Hardin's position at the Agriculture.
Department was shaken by farmer unrest,
over price support policies that helped
lead to Republican election losses. Of the
nine House seats won by Democrats,
eight were farm belt.

Although Fraser urged Nixo to give
the House a clear sign of where he stood
on the bill, he said that he had received a
call from the State Department -which he
said was instigated by the White
House-urging him to help kill the bill.
"The State Department is very
concerned about the effects of the bill,"
agreed Rep. Brock Adams, D-Wash. He
cited reports that other nations were
prepared to retaliate against U.S. goods if
restrictions are placed cn their imports.
But Rep. John W. Byrnes, R-Wis.,
ranking Republican on the Ways and
Means Committee, urged members to
vote for it.
Nixon's original trade proposal
included textile quotas, limited
tariff -cutting authority -which the bill
contains-some relief provisions and the
tax break for U.S. industries. It did not
include shoe quotas, the freeze on oil
quotas, or give him broad new authority
to impose quotas on other goods if the
tariff commission finds imports hurt

wanted to testify and it appeared the
judge would grant their wish.

Lebanese border, with heavy mortars for
an hour and a half early Thursday, a
guerrilla spokesman in Amman said. An
Israeli spokesman denied the report but
said guerrilla mortar had hit Metulla the
two previous nights.
In Cairo, an Egyptian government
spokesman attacked as "regrettable"
President Nixon's request to Congress to
appropriate $500 million in aid to Israel,
and said this simply encouraged Israel to
continue its "aggression" and defy United
United Nations resolutions.
In Beirut, Lebanese Premier Saeb
Salem, whose country has been
earmarked for $5 million in U.S. foreign
aid, also denounced Nixon's action as
"being unjust to the Arabs."
A Jordanian government spokesman
said the fighting in Amman was provoked
by the guerrillas when they attacked
Jordanian police positions Wednesday
evening. . , -, . i
The guerrillas and government .forces
exchanged machine and mortar fire and
grenades in the fighting that lasted until
7:30 a.m. Thursday. Neither side issued

Charles Manson and the three young
women for the Sharon Tate and LaBianca
One of the young women, Patricia
Krenwinkel, stood up and announced
that she wanted to take the witness stand
contrary to the tactic of resting the case.
Superior Court Judge Charles H. Older
summoned all the attorneys and
defendants into his chamber to decide the
next step to take.
In the judge's chambers, Susan Atkins

"war wagon" for protection, closed in
Thursday on a small group of Black
Panthers holed up in a New Orleans
apartment who vowed a shootout.
Police Supt. Clarence Glarusso climbed
info the armored vehicle and. usrnj: a
turret loudspeaker, ordered the blacks to
surrender their sandbagged apartment and
basement in the tense Desire housing
Early in the afternoon, police said a
shot had been fired from a building about
two blocks away. The officers said the
sniper's bullet and a firebomb were limed
at a police car but both missed. The shot
wounded a Negro boy.
It was the only shot heard in the first
five hours of the confrontation.
Giarrusso offered to pull all police out
if the Panthers agreed to surrender at
police headquarters on charges of
misdemeanor trespassing. He said they
would be released on bail. The Panthers
rejected the offer.
Police prepared to fire tear gas into the
headquarters the blacks had occupied for
a month in defiance of the city housing
authority, which told them to leave then
asked for police assistance.
Some Negroes in the low rent, red
brick housing project took police
instructions and evacuated their
apartments before officers began moving
in. But more than 200 stood around and
watched the police operation.
