LOS ANGELES (AP) - Today, the
ninth anniversary of the brutal Sharon
Tate-LaBianca slayings, also is the day
Leslie Van Houten is to be sentenced for
murder in the case.
Her attorneys, who say she is com-
pletely rehabilitated, will call a parade
of witnesses in a desperate effort to win
her release on parole.
SHE HAS ALREADY served eight
years on earlier convictions.
Although she was convicted of mur-
der in 1971 with Charles Manson and
two other "Manson girls," Van
Houten's two subsequent trials set her
apart from the tribe of still-devoted
Manson followers who languish in
California prisons.
Van Houten was a changed woman.
No longer the prattling, defiant teen-
ager of the first trial, she was neatly
dressed, smiling and articulate.
HER ATTORNEY, Maxwell Keith,
who won a new trial for Van Houten,
hoped not for acquittal but for convic-
tion of manslaughter which would give
her a chance at parole.
Van Houten has admitted stabbing
Rosemary LaBianca the night of Aug.
10, 1969, but she said it was after the
woman was already dead. Although she
was convicted of conspiracy in the
murder of Tate and four others the
previous night, Van Houten was not
along thatnight.
It is up to Superior Court Judge Gor-
don Ringer to choose a sentence for Van
Houten; He has a number of options.
One which will be urged by defense
lawyers is a reduction of the conviction.

has said it is up to Congress to decide.
The states that have rescinded ap-

and Nebraska. Kentucky's action was
vetoed, however.

month approved an extension of the
ERA deadline from March 22, 1979, to
June 30, 1982, and the extension issue

Ring mystery solution
just a .flush away

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - A 10-
month mystery in which more than
4,500 rings vanished one and two at a
time from the repair shop of a jewelry
company has been solved. The key
clue: a cleaning woman noticed that too
much toilet paper was being used in a
particular restroom.
"It was baffling. We had these repor-
ted losses but weren't able to track
them. No one would ever guess they
were being flushed down a toilet,"
George Gay, director of personnel for
the L. G. Balfour Co., said yesterday.
"WE HAVEN'T taken an inventory.
They would be a complete mixture of
what we offer. I'm sure we'll find a
World Series ring and probably others
from special events of this type," said
He would not identify the cleaning
woman who helped solve the ring
Neither would he identify the
disgruntled employee, now dismissed,
who apparently had been randomly
wrapping the rings in tissue, then
flushing them. Gay said no criminal
charges have been filed and gave no in-
dication there would be.
THE RINGS were -diWpearing from'
the r'epair shop of tHe, lent that is'
located about an hoiis, sou)hMof,
Boston. Gay said the'shop is always

very busy. People send their rings there
to be enlarged or to have other work
done on them.
"If it's a World Series or NBA cham-
pionship ring, the athletes usually get
fatter as they get older. The rings need
enlarging," Gay said.
In June, a cleaning lady noticed an
unusual amount of toilet paper was
being used in a particular women's
room and she called this to the firm's
"MOST ALL jewelry companies have
special traps in their plumbing systems
because we know this can be a way to
remove things," Gay said.
Maintenance workers opened the
trap and discovered the rings piled in
wet gobs of tissue.
Gay said the rings are still being
cleaned with acid and being returned to
their owners, along with a note that
apologetically says the ring has been
