DERELECTION OF DUTY and other charges against four
more officers - Lt. Col. David Gavin, Lt. Col. William Guinn,
Maj. Charles Calhoun, and Maj. Frederick W. Watke - accused
in the alleged coverup of the My Lai case were dropped yesterday,
the Army said, because of "insufficient evidence."
The four were part of a group of fourteen officers who were
charged last March after an army panel reported evidence indicating
that "certain persons, wittingly or unwittingly, suppressed certain
information about the incident from passing up the chain of com-

LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT CORP. rejected yesterday the gov-
ernment's offer to settle its dispute on the controversial C5 trans-
port plane project.
The firm said that it would instead seek to recover its lossesj
through litigation.
The Pentagon had offered to settle the tangled dispute if Lock-
heed would take a $200 million fixed loss. Deputy Defense Secretary
David Packard also offered the alternative plan which Lockheed has
chosen to accept, involving drawn-out litigation.
Through this process, spokesmen for Lockheed said the company
hopes to gain a better financial settlement than the government had

PARIS L4'-- The U.S. combat role in South Vietnam will
end after the middle of next summer, when the South Viet-
namese will take over the military burden, Defense Secretary
Melvin Laird said yesterday.
However, according to Laird, U.S. forces will continue to
protect logistics, air and artillery bases.
"We will have an air support role and the combat forces
which will be assigned to the logistics, support and artillery
roles will not be a combat mission but will be a security mis-
sion," he told a news conference.
"They will be there to protect and support the forces that
are assigned these roles , . . We will be in a position where
the American combat respon

THE HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE has been artifically
synthesized for the first time, a University of California bio-
chemistry professor, Dr. C. H. Li, announced yesterday.
The discovery represents a research milestone in man's quest
for an understanding of the chemical basis of the body's function.
The achievement by the Hormone Research Laboratory at U of
C.'s San Francisco campus may lead to the eventual elimination of
most forms of dwarfism; a new method of controling cholesterol, as-
sociated with arteriosclerosis and heart disease; and a possible cure
for cancer.

THE TRIAL of nine Jews in Leningrad was suddenly halted
yesterday ten minutes after it opened. Reports circulated that the
Soviet government had decided to cancel any further prosecution
of Jews.
Relatives of the Leningrad defendants had been told by court
officials that the trial had been postponed because one of the de-
fendants was ill with influenza.
However, a correspondent for the F r e n c h communist paper
L'Humanite reported that there would be no further trials of Jews.
Though there was no official confirmation of the report, the
Soviet government frequently uses correspondents of Western com-
munist papers to leak information.

THE PENTAGON said yesterday that it is sending agents
around the globe to determine the total cost of the country's
foreign arms program.
A defense spokesman said the United States spent $4.8 billion
during the fiscal year to provide arms to other nations, but added that
the figure does not include millions or possibly billions of dollars in
assistance to Vietnam or in military sales.

'Wiretap in
e ase found
It became apparent last month
that the government had b e e n
wiretapping in the case of Law-
rence (Pun) Plamondon, a White
Panther Party official accused of
bombing the Ann Arbor Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA) office
in September of 1968.
That wiretapping had been used
became known when the justice
department submitted tapes to the
U.S. District Court in Detroit, af-
ter a judge ordered that they sub-
f mit any tapes relevant to the case.
The judge will decide next week
whether the tapes will be admis-
sible as evidence in the case. The
government claims that the wire-
taps were legal and national se-
curity was involved, though it did
not originally disclose that t h e
tapes had been made.
According to Buck Davis, an at-
torney for the defense, the de-
fense requested several months
ago that it be permitted to obtain
any wiretaps related to the case.
In response to that motion, the
judge ordered the U.S. attorney
to produce any tapes which might
have been made. Now the Justice
Department has forwarded some
tapes to the judge.
The tapes are not to be seen by
either the defense or prosecuting
attorneys unless the judge rules
that they are admissible as evi-
Also accused in thercase are two
other White Panthers, John Sin-
clair and Jack Forrest. All three
are accused of conspiracy and
Plamondon is also accused of car-
rying out the actual bombing.
The conspiracy charge carries
a maximum penalty of five years
in prison and a $10,000 fine. The
second count, only naming Pla-
mondon, carries a maximum pen-
alty of ten years in prison and
$10,000 fine. There are no mini-
mum penalties.
The FBI investigated the bomb-
ing of the CIA office, which hand-
led prospective agents from the
University and Michigan State
University. The bombing, which
caused $6,000 worth of damage,
occured after six similar blasts in
the Detroit area.
One year later, a Detroit grand
jury indicted the three Panthers
on the conspiracy charge. Police
then began an interstate search
for Plamondon, and he was appre-
hended nine months later by
Michigan State Police who charg-
ed him with carrying a concealed
