WASHINGTON (P) -- Three of-
ficers of the. Clemency and Parole
Board will visit Lt. William Cal--
ley Jr. on Nov. 27 to hear his ap-
peal for clemency in the 20-year,
sentence he is serving for mass
murder in My Lai.
The board's visit, an unusual
step authorized by the Secretary
of the Army, bypasses .a number
of routine channels and is sepa-
rate from a hearing the Army's
Court of Military Review has
scheduled for Dec. 4.
The 29years-old Calley, convict-
ed of at least 22 murders in the
South Vietnamese hamlet, has been
under house arrest at Ft. Benning,
Ga., since his sentencing on March
31, 1971.
Calley's lawyers, who requested
the speed-up of the clemency pro-
cess, will not be present when
members of the board interview
the former platoon leader.

fined at the Disciplinary Barracks
at Ft. Leavenworth, Kan., and nor-
mally .takes place in cases like.
Calley's eight months after con-
finement.
In Calley's case, the disposition
board will send its recommenda-
tions to the commander at Ft. Ben-
ning, to go directly to the Provost'
Marshal General of the Army.
This procedure bypasses the
commandant of the military pri-
son, who would normally review
the board's recommendations and
send them, along with his own, to

the Provost Marshal General.
It is not the first time that Army
routine has been changed in the
controversial Calley case. After the
6-man court martial convicted Cal-
ley and sentenced him- to life in
prison, President Nixon personally
ordered the house arrest and said
he would review the final disposi-
tion after the Army's long chain
of legal procedures was over.
Calley's lawyers, in addition to
asking for the clemency hearing,j
filed a 461-page petition to the
Court of Military Review claim-
ing 32 errors in his 4 -month trial,
ranging from command influence,
suppression of evidence and viola-
tion of constitutional rights.
The court will determine whe-
ther the findings and sentence are
legally correct and whether the
sentence is appropriate. Should
the conviction be affirmed, Calley
may petition the U. S. Court of
Military Appeals, composed of
three civilian judges, for a review
of matters of law.
