Threats by Manson
disciple draw worry

Fromme defends trees

LOS ANGELES OP) - An al-
leged "death list" of industry
executives given out yesterday
by Charles Manson disciple
Sandra Good evoked concern,
though not alarm, from Calif-
ornia's attorney.general.
His staff was studying the law,
however, to see if the threats
were illegal.
TWO prosecutors of Manson,
the convicted murderer -of ac-
tress Sharon Tate and six oth-
ers, were divided in their opin-
ions of how seriously to take the
threats, by the roommate of Lyn-
ette "Squeaky" Fromrne, who
was arraigned yesterday on
charges of trying to assassinate
the President.
A spokesman for state Atty.
Gen. Evelle Younger said, "Of
course he's concerned. Any
time someone makes that kind
of statement . . . and some of
these people have done horrible
things."
He. said Younger's staff had
reached a preliminary conclu-
sion that the issuing of the list
alone did not constitute a crime,
said the spokesman.
GOOD SAID the executives on
the list had been singled out for
assassination by what she called
an "International People's Court
of Retribution." There was no
independent verification of what
that signifies.
Many of those named are oil
industry men, utilities adminis-
trators accused of wanting to
overrun the country with nu-
clear power plants, and logging
magnates.
Manson prosecutor Vincent
Bugliosi called the statement
"more than just rhetoric" and

said it "should be taken very
seriously.
"I THINK those on the list
should be very concerned," he
said, because Good is a "hard-
core member" of the Manson
family.
But another prosecutor in the
case, Stephen Kay, has labeled
Fromme's gun-wielding of last.
week as a publicity move, and
played down the seriousness of
the death list.
"I don't think it's real seri-
ous," he added. "But of course
with the Manson family you can
never tell. They're" unpredict-
able."
"I'M AMAZED that a name
like mine would be on such a
list," said Louis Gandsey of
Rolling Hills, Calif., an official
of Atlantic Richfield Co.
Herbert Gray, regional vice
president of the Westinghouse
Corp. in Atlanta, said, "Most of
my appearances have been in
places where there is accep-
tance of power plants. It's kooky
and very bizarre. I wonder if
taking note of them only accel-
erates this kind of thing."
"I don't know why they don't
lock these people up," was the
reaction of E.S. McCawley, a
spokesman for Remington Arms
Co. executive Philip Burdett.
In Midland, Mich. FBI agents
continued their investigation
into a threatening telephone call
reportedly made by a member
of the Manson family to a top
executive of Dow Chemical Co.
The caller on Sept. 4 report-
edly criticized Dow for produc-
ing napalm during the Vietnam-
ese war and for polluting the
air with the substance.#

began.
THE JUDGE interrupted. But
she went on: "I want you to or-
der the corps of government en-,
gineers to buy up the parks ...
You have jurisdiction over the
redwood trees . . . The import-
ant part is the redwood trees."
"The gun is pointed, your
honor," she said firmly as the.
judge tried to silence her. "The,
gun is pointed. Whether it goes
off is up to you."
The judge then ordered her
removed from court.
LEAVING quietly in the es-
cort of a marshal who grasped'
her arm, Fromme said cheer-
fully: "I hope I wasn't rude."
The judge assured her she
wasn't, and he said he would
do everything he could to have
her tried in 60 to 90 days.
Fromme is the first person to
be tried on the charge of at-
tempted murder of the Presi-
dent, a charge enacted after the
assassination of President John
F. Kennedy in 1973. Conviction
