Argentinan leader Calley conviction probed

returns trom exile

By DIANA PAGE
BUENOS AIRES (UPI) - Juan
Peron returns to Argentina to-
day, once again the most power-
ful man in the country, as he
was during his 1945-55 term of of-
fice.
EIGHTEEN YEARS of exile
will end finally June 20 for Per-
on, who makes his comeback
with army ranks and properties
fully restored, his ambitions ful-
filled. -
President Hector Campora,

show on inauguration day. The
new president immediately began
fulfilling his campaign promises,
decreeing amnesty for political
prisoners and fixing prices.
The new government made it
clear it was counting on Peron
to handle the major problems -
the violent divisions within the
Peronist movement and the free-
wheeling leftist guerrillas who
said they intended to continue at-
tacking capitalists and the armed
forces.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Attor-
neys attempting to overturn the
conviction of Lt. William Calley
have asked a military court to
probe the role the White House
played in investigating the My
Lai massacre.
THE ATTORNEYS filed a mo-
tion Monday with the U. S. Court
of Military Appeals asking it to
order the production of inter-
views, wiretaps, logs and other
records collected by two former
White House aides who have been
mentioned in the Watergate case.
The lawyers cited published
reports that former New York
policeman John Caulfield and an
associate, Anthony F. Ulasewicz,
interviewed My Lai participants
on behalf of the White House.
Caulfield and Ulasewicz worked
on undercover projects for the
White House for three years be-
ginning the spring of 1969, prin-

principal military lawyer, said
the attorneys had asked the court
to obtain the records to learn
"everything the White House
staff did that involved My Lai."
"We don't know what we'll
find in the records because we
didn't know about their involve-
ment before,' Gordon said. Gor-
don said such material might
raise doubts about the truthful-

ness of witnesses if they said one
thing to the White House investi-
gators and another at the court
martial of Calley. It said the re-
cords also could supply evidence
of a White House effort to convict
Calley.
CALLEY'S defenders already
have charged that numerous high
officials, including President Nix-
on and then Army Chief of Staff
William Westmoreland, pursued a
policy of punishing Calley "in or-
der to cleanse the Army of any
guilt." They have asserted that
such "command influence" is
grounds for olerturning Calley's
conviction.
Calley was convicted of mur-
dering at least 22 civilians in the
massacre at My Lai March 16,
1968.

"Campora in government, Peron in power
. . let Juan do it."
-Peronist party slogan

whom Peron selected as the
candidate for his movement,
campaigned on the slogan "Cam-
pora in government, Peron in
power."
Those who thought Peron had
made a mistake when he picked
the former dentist as his presi-
dential candidate were in for a
rude awakening after the March
1t electioiis, wheit Campora won
six million votes, or half the bal-
lots in a nine-man race, thanks to
loyalities of past Peronists.
