Carter calm despite
N. Korean shooting
of U.S helicopter
WASHINGTON (A ) President Carter said yesterday that
the U.' S. helicopter shot down in North Korea had flown over
Communist territory by mistake and that "our primary interest
is in having the incident not escalate into a confrontation."
Three American crewmen were killed and a fourth was cap-
tured yesterday in the latest incident marring the uneasy Korean
truce. The North Koreans later failed to show up for a meeting
sought by the American-led United Nations command and the
discussion is set for Saturday (10 p.m. EDT today).
PRESS SECRETARY Jody Powell told reporters yesterday
afternoon that North Korean members of the armistice commis-
sion said the captured man had been wounded and was receiving
medical treatment.
Powell said he did not know whether U. S. troops in South
Korea were placed on alert. But a Pentagon spokesperson said

After 93 grueling h o u r s of
poring over thousands of con-
fusing and often conflicting tes-
timony, the nine women and
tlfree men of the jury convicted
nurses Leonora Perez and Fi-
lipina Narciso of poisoning pa-
tients at the Ann Arbor Vet-
eran's Administration (VA) Hos-
pital. But because of the com-
plex nature of the case, many
people are still uncertain of just
what crimes the .nurses were
found guilty. The following is a
description of each incident for
which the two were convicted,
including the victim's name, the
name of the nurse in question,
and the details of the crime.
* Mark Hogan, 75 - Narciso
was convicted of injecting Pavu-
lon, a powerful muscle-relaxant,
into the retired carpenter's in-
travenous medication tube.
NARCISO WAS, by 'testimony '
and her own admission, with
Hogan in his room about five
minutes before his breathing
failure, she told the old man ;1$'
"Have a nice dinner,. Mr. Ho-
gan." A few minutes later Ho-
gan stopped breathing.
