Corona Norco Independent (Newspaper) - January 12, 1973, Corona, California caps Corona Elisberg jury ¡s selected LOS ANGELES AP - A jury of 10 women and two men, including a Vietnam war veteran, was chosen today to judge Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo in the Pehtagon Papers trail. It was the second jury to be selected in the. case. The first panel, sworn last summer, was dismissed after a four-month trial recess while matters were appealed to higher courts. Defendants waived their right to protection against double jeopardy in order to get a new jury. Defense and prosecution attorneys quickly used ' their preemptory challenges today to remove persons they felt were not sympathetic to their side. The defense removed persons who expressed hawkish views on. the Vietnam war. And, except in one instance, the government appeared to be removing those who had antiwar views. The surprise /6nR&s^y came when government pii-osecutoiNpavid Nissen exhausted his challenges ^d left on the jury a Vietnam war veteran Vho said he disapproves of the war and told the judge, "I pray for peace." ^ The veteran had earlier provided one of the most dramatic moments in, jury selection as he told of being nearly blown apart accidentally by a l^.S. bomb. He receives a 40 per cent disability pension. The jurors include housewives, a jazz pianist, a postal clerk and occupations as varied as a seamstress and an auto assemblyman. Selection of alternate jurors began immediately. Six alternates are to be sleected, and U.S. District Court Judge Matt Byrne indicated he would question 19 more prospective jurors before challenging begins for alternates.

Minsk conference held MINSK, U.S.S.R. AP - President Georges Pompidou of France conferred privately with Soviet Communist party chief Leonid I. Brezhnev for hours today on a wide range of world problems, including Vietnam and the Middle East. Asian drug traffic WASHINGTON (AP) - Drug traffic in Indochina cannot be slopped until illicit guns-for-opium trade is stopped in Burma and stronger antinarcotics measures are taken in neighboring countries, according to a House staff Report. The report, prepared by two House Foreign Affairs Committee staff members, cites information that Royal Lao 'Air Force pilots are flying narcotics throughout Indochina and that high Laotian officials are involved in drug traffic. It says closing down traditional opium routes appears to have led to development of new ones. Index Church............................I.")

Authorities then believed that the impact ejected the victims, and Simpson and Lucas are inspecting the seat belts. Later it was learned that only one man was ejected, and he was pronounced dead upon arrival at Corona Community Hospital. Three of the victims, relatives of the pilot, had come to Corona from OiUario, Canada, to attend his wedding, scheduled for tomorrow. They had rented the plane from Aero-O-VVest Aviation shortly before the craft crashed into an orange grovie southwest of Ontario and Mangular in ai hill area. 85th Year, No. 152 Corona, Califoria Friday, January 12,1973 Phone 737-1234 18 Pages—10 Cents Prime Norco poultry is killed By BETTE REINCKE Squawking chickens and blue-coveralled men from the Newcastle task force were the focal point of .the scene this forenoon at John Madruga's Norco Poultry Breeding Farm. White leghorns, valued by the government at about $4 each, were being tossed in bunches of four to six hens each, into the rear of a large truck, connected by ominous hose to the exhaust pipe of a smaller vehicle. They were being gassed by carbon monoxide because early this week Norco's first case of exotic Newcastle disease was discovered in a pullet pen at Madruga's Sixth and Temescal ranch. TODAY, the remainder of the pullets in the same pen look listless and off-color and some are going into the more definite symptoms including gasping and huddling with eyes closed. MADRUGA'S BIRDS are of^ prime breeding stock called Babcock. He bought them as day-old chicks from New York at $2.25 each-which is high-priced for chicks. He said that the price now is much higher. He was calm as he watched the birds being tossed into the truck. The task force has already destroyed ii.OQO chicks and 75 cases of eggs were being wheeled out for dumping. There were about 8,000 chickens at the ranch and another 8,500 in poultry houses at his Hillside ranch. Also being taken away for burial was all feed, all scrapings and manure-everything that had ai;iy contact with the chickens which have become infected with the usually fatal disease. It does not harm humans. Although all types of' birds are supposed to be susceptible to the disease, the federal task force seemed oblivious to hundreds of sparrows and other wild birds flitting about in the trees. One worker noted that there wasn't much use worrying about it as they coul^'t be caught to be killed. DOUG DETTROW, a youth who works for Madruga, said 39 pullets at his Detroit Street home would have to be destroyed too because of his contact with Madruga's ranch. Everyone eptering the ranch either had to don disposable boots or have shoes disinfected as they left. The workers wore blue coveralls, boots and white caps over their hair and many, though not all, wore gloves. Madruga said he has had "sentinel birds" at his ranches since August. They are laboratory-raised hens that have not been vaccinated against the disease. They are the bellwethers for Newcastle because if they get it it's a fairly good bet the rest of the flock is infected. All Madruga's birds were vaccinated. He said he'd seen the visible inner signs of Newcastle in an autopsy of one of the first birds to get sick. He said there were rough warts inside the sick birds, in various organs and intestines. They were quite easy to spot, he said. HE HAS LIVED in Norco since 1943 and has worked with poultry for 41 years. Once the entire ranch is cleaned and disinfected, he hopes to continue, incubating eggs and selling chicks but doesn't plan to go back into the full breeding cycle again. Madruga is not bitter or angry about being hit by Newcastle, taking it philosophically with a shrug. The disease is bad, he said, and it must be stopped before it spreads to other parts of the country. Fund for families of sniper victims NEW ORLEANS AP - A wealthy banker has started a fund for the families of three policemen killed in the New Orleans snipings. Louis Roussel presented a check for $5,000 Thursday to Irevih Magri, head of the Patroln?an's Association of New Orleans, with instructions that it be shared among the families of Deputy Police Supt.

The dead man's widow, Cesira Galva, was at Corona Municipal Airport awaiting the return of the plane while a crew from_ Kniffin's Ambulance was racing to Corona Community hospital with her husband, George, 31, and the trio of injured persons. Galva, of Ontario, Canada, was pronounced dead upon arrival. MRS. GALVA, expecting the birth of another child, was rushed to the hospital immediately upon receiving news of the crash. Injured when the plane smashed to the ground between two rows of orange trees were the pilot. Livio" C. Martin, 31, of 1265 W. Tenth, Corona; Loris Cecchetto, 45; and Marisa Cecchetto, 33, both of Ontario, Canada; Police said that the Galvas and Cecchettos, relatives of Martin, had come to Corona to attend his wedding tomorrow. Martin had rented the plane, a four-place Cherokee, to give his ^relatives an aerial view of the city. Aer-o-West Aviation, an airport business, owned the plane. Police and firemen said the plane was flying extremely low when the oil pressure di-opped and the propeller stopped. MARISA, apparently the least injured of the group, told police that she heard Martin say, "There's no oil pressure." The propeller stopped, and the plane went into a glide. She said she recalled nothing else until she found herself sitting in the smashed plane with Loris and the injured pilot. Galva was thrown out of the plane upon impact. DÀVID SMITH, 16, of 952 Alta Loma, was riding a motorcycle with friends in the southwest hill area when the plane passed oven He told his parents, Mr. and Mrs. David Smith, that the craft was only about 150 feet above ground. David said he heard the motor sputter, saw a puff of smoke from the plane, and noticed that the propeller had stopped. The plane glided a ways, then crashed into the trees behind a hill. He said he could see the glow of fire arise. MARISA said the plane caught fire upon impact. She managed to get out of the craft, along with Marttn, and they removed Loris. They pulled Galva .lying on the ground nearby, farther avvay from the burning plane. Police and firemen, alerted that a plane had crashed, had difficulty in pinpointing the exact site. Fire Chief Jim Johnson said that one of the motorcyclists droye to the intersection of Ontario and Mangular and led authorities to the crash site, near the top of a hill to the southwest. Corona reserve officer John Wise was the first of the rescue workers to reach the scene. At that time all the occupants were out of the burning plane, and it was first thought that the impact had ejected them. Officers Ruben Martinez and Al Rose arrived shortly after Wise. A resuscitator from the ambulance failed as workers were preparing to load the victims, and Martinez and Rose took over. Martines gave Galva mouth-to-mouth resuscitation while kose administered an external 'heart massage. THE OFFICER leaped into the ambulance and continued their efforts to revive Galva until the ambulance arrived at the hospital. They said that Galva was bleeding badly from the mouth, nose, eyes and ears. Police said that Martin. received numerous lacerations and a fractured jaw in the crash, while Marisa, five months'pregnant, complained of spine injuries. Loris also received a broken jaw. The orange grove in which the plane crashed borders and unpaved road that winds over the-tiills. The plane struck between the first and second rows of trees, leading some officials to believe that Martin was attempting an emergency landing on thè road. Weather Mostly fair through the weekend with some early morning fog tomorrow. Warme:. Today's ndon temperature was 64, after an overnightjow of 39. Yesterday's high was 67.More Watergate guilt pleas?
