0- WASHINGTON tM - The private foundation headed by
Supreme Court Justice William 0. Douglas has sold its $2-
million stoclk holdings in a firm which owns three Las Vegas
gambling casinos, a foundation official said yesterday.
Justice Douglas, as the president and only paid official of.
the Albert Parvin Foundation, has come under fire in Con-
! gress for his. outside salary and the stock ties with the casino

week in the controversy over a $20,000 check from the family

the decision would affect about
100 federal cases.
The decision was the court's
first major pronouncement since
Abe Fortas resigned last week
under fire. It follows last year's
gutting of federal regulations to
register gamblers and certain fire-
arms users.
In reversing Leary's conviction
and 5-to-30 year prison sentence
the court struck two vital blows
at federal marijuana laws.
First, it established that a de-
fendant cannot be prosecuted for
transporting ,untaxed marijuana
so 'long as he correctly invokes
his fifthsamendment protection
against self-incrimination.
Second, it prohibits the assump-
tion that ra defendant knew the
marijuana was foreing-grown and
hence illegally imported.
And, in a companion case in-
volving a jazz musician from Co-
lumbus, Ohio, the court riddled a
third federal marijuana law-one
that made it a crime to obtain
marijuana without having paid
the transfer tax.
Still, Leary may not be wholly
in the clear.
The rulings permit convictions
based on proof the defendant knew
the untaxed marijuana found in
his possession was smuggeld into,
the country..
In other 'important actions, the
high court:
" Refused to review a Califor-

Informed sources said yesterday that Police Chief Krasny
is expected to announce today the dismissal of the patrolman
who was charged by the Human Relations Commission with
beating an HRC staff member on assignment.
However, Krasny last night called the reports "errone-
ous" and said no decision was made as of yesterday.
Krasny said he will make a public statement today con-
cerning the results of his investigation as soon as he confers
with Mayor Robert Harris and City Administrator Guy Lar-
com, who were out of town yesterday.
"I'm exploring all the legal angles," Krasny said, ex-
