LOS ANGELES (AP) - Leslie Van
Houten, the high school homecoming
princess who became a disciple of mass
murderer Charles Manson, was found
guilty again yesterday of first-degree
murder and conspiracy in the 1969 Tate-
It was the third time that the 28-year-
old Miss Van Houten had been tried for
the shocking murders.
ONE OF HER trials ended in a hung
jury last year. But yesterday's convic-
tion affirmed the original jury verdict
in 1971 which convicted her along with
Manson and twoother women.
The 1971 verdict was overturned by
an appeals court which ruled Miss Van
Houten had been denied adequate legal
representation after her lawyer,
Ronald Hughes, died on a camping trip
during the trial.
The slender, dark-haired Miss Van
Houten hung her head and clutched the
sides of her chair when the verdict of
guilty of first degree murder in the
slayings of Leno and Rosemary
LaBianca was read.

Disappearance still baffles police

of various Ann Arbor neighborhoods,
trying to gain information of Gold's
The search was organized by the
family and friends through the Hillel
Foundation in Ann Arbor and Temple
Emanuel in Oak Park. They met at the
Hillel Foundation at 10 in the morning,
and broke up into groups of six people to
scour the University area.
The groups circulated through
various neighborhoods, showing pic-
tures of the missing woman and asking
residents if they had seen her since her
disappearance June 16.
"I FOUND THIS morning that about
90 per cent of the people we talked to
knew about the case, and that's really
tremendous," said Lillian Hyman, a
friend of the Gold family. "The few that
didn't know were those that were away
for a week or two, or those that had just
come to town," Hyman added.
"Most people had already seen the
leaflets or flyers that we have been
posting, and those that hadn't took
some. People were very 'com-
passionate," said another canvasser.
The group Imet back at the Hillel
Foundation at 1 o'clock, and a smaller
group went out again at 2. Later in the
afternoon, Ferguson met with them to
discuss any leads the group may have
"WE'RE JUST going to have to go
over every lead we have-we've got a
few leads already this morning," said
Adela Gold, Beverly's mother. "If
we've only got one lead, then we will
just have to check it out to the end," she
Several new pieces of information
were turned up, mostly from people
who said they have seen persons wat-
ching Gold's description after her
disappearance. Others claimed to have
seen unfamiliar cars frequently driving
through Gold's neighborhood. One
report mentioned an orange truck
which was often seen in the area.
Beverly Gold is about 5-foot-4, with
hazel eyes and brown hair. When she
was last seen, she was wearing blue
jeans and a t-shirt. She is 20 years old.
