(AP) A federal judge has set June 24 as the date for hearing William Calley's challenge of his convic- tion for murdering 22 Vietna- mese civilians. The date was set on Monday as Judge J. Robert Elliott took under study a government re- quest that bail allowing Calley his freedom be revoked. Elliott indicated he would con- tinue Calley's bond although Asst. U.S. Atty. Charles Erion argued that "substantial consti- tutional questions" on the issue had been answered in various military courts. However, Elliott noted that the supreme court had granted bail to a former army captain in 1969. Elliott said the case was similar to Calley's. Calley, 30, was freed on his personal recognizance in lieu of bail on Feb. 27 after nearly three years of house ar- rest at his bachelor apartment at nearby Ft. Benning. If Elliott denies his petition seeking reversal of his convic- tion, Calley would be returned lo army confinement. But he also would be eligible for parole ..icused of murdering Sarah Ann Ottens. 19, a U. of I. coed March j13, 1973.

LAFF A DAY Judge Louis Schultz. in deny- ing the change, said news cover- age has not been prejudicial, and modern transportation methods would make it easy for disruptions to take place, no matter where the trial was held. Johnson County Attorney Carl Goetz Tuesday refused to com- ment on whether the prosecu- tion may seek a stay order from the Iowa supreme court, which could delay the trial. Goetz, however, confirmed he plans to discuss such a stay order with Asst. Attorney Gen- eral Garry Woodward. The Hall trial is scheduled to begin Thursday. aide John Ehrlicliman expected dairy farmers to reaffirm their million promise in light of the .forthcoming price increase, the (sources said. Nelson is said to have agreed, and Ihe next day prices went up. At the time, Kalmbach was President Nixon's personal law- jver and his chief fundraiser. Chotincr had resigned from the White House staff three weeks earlier and, as a private lawyer, was being paid a year by Nelson's group, Associated Milk Producers, Inc., the largest dairy cooperative in the nation. Chotiner died Jan. 30 of injuries suffered in an auto accident. More than a year before his death, he testified that ''under no circumstances" would he ever have linked government favors with campaign donations in his discussions with the confinement.
