NFW tiRtEANS ()-A federal appeals
court yesterday ordered an end to for-r
mer Army Lt. William Calley's freedom
on bail while his conviction in the My l s d i c
ILas killings is argued in ciili n courts,
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
rexversed a lower cotirt judge who
granted Calley bail in February-block-
ing the Army's move to send him toI
military prison at Ft. I eavenworth, Kan.
IN A FIVE-PAGE ruling issued 21
hours after a special expedited hearing,
the three-judge panel ordered Calley
back into Army custody-with the Army
to decide where it wants to keep him.
In Washington, the Army said it is
'prep. red to resume custody of William;
Calley a nsoon as it is legally permis-
sible to do so."
The ruling means Calley must con-
tinue serving his 10-year sentence while
his lawyers argue before U.S. District
Judge Robert Elliott in Columbus, Ga.,
in an effort to have his military con-X
viction retried in civilian court.'
A JUNE 24 hearing is set in the Geor-
gia court.
Calley attorney Houston Gordon said
from Covington, Tenn.:
"It was unexpectedly quick and we're
going to take all steps we can just as
fast as we can to either ask the 5th;
Circuit Court of Appeals to review their
decision or try to have it 'set aside by
a higher authority."
THE NEXT STEP would be an appeal
to the U.S. Supreme Court.,

WASHINGTON (,' After a week of
see-sawing, there still was no final word
yesterday on whether John Ehrlichma

TIlE JUDGE scheduled another mee-

order" will be issued then.
Even if Ehrlichiman is finally tried
with Bernard Barker, Eugenio Martinez
and Gordon Liddy, it seemed likely the
last-minute maneuverings will force a

Ehrlichman was severed as a defend-

lawyers could not gain full access to his
White House files for material he sub-
poenaed for the trial.
ON WEDNESDAY, Buzliardt told Ge-

strictions on Ehrichman notes already
submitted by the White Ilose to the
judge. And he signed a sworn statement
that the remaining subpoenaed notes
contained nothing that could help or
hurt Ehrlichman.
