Dies inds for Green Bay Dynasty Builder lOc SUNDAY Aaaciatcd Press By TOM SEPI'Y Associated Press Sprjrls Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Vin- ccul Thomas Lombardi, who be- came a lengendary figure by building the (ircen Day Packers inlo a world clianipion pro loot- ball dynasty, died early today in Georgetown University Hospital of cancer. Tlie 57-year-old Lombardi, head coach, executive vice pres- ident and part owner of Ihe Redskins at the Mora on Pg. 6C time of his death, .underwent. surgery June 27 during which a tumor, said to be non-malig- nant, and two (eel of colon were removed. One month -later lie underwent what was described as "assitional surgery" at Ihe hospital. A spokesman at [lie hospital said Lombard! succumbed at a.m. EOT, his wife, Marie, at his side. Lombardi, an awesome task- master with his players, lived by the motto: "Winning isn't Ihe big thing. It's Ihe only thing." And no one ever doubled il. He arrived at Green flay, Wis., population in 1959 one year after Ihe Packers had posted a miserable 1-10-1 record, their worst ever. lie said he was "no miracle ycl forged a 7-5 record during his firsl season, won the divisional championship the fol- lowing year, and (hen proceeded to capture National Football League titles in 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, and 1967. His Packers also won the first two .Super Bowls against American Football League learns. His nine-year coaching record at Green Day was 83-23-4. After becoming the first man in Ihe NFL playoff history ever to win three straight champion- ships, he retired as a coach to Exempt Foundation Set Up n Uses 'System' to Avoid Tax By JEAN H1CLLUK AssociHtcd Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Yip- pie leader Jerry Rubin, using the laws of "the system" he seeks to destroy, has .set up a (ax-exempt foundation to shield a major portion of his income from federal lax collectors. The foundation, called Ihe So- cial Education Foundation and also known as tne Jerry Rubin Fund, holds the copyright on Rubin's best-selling, revolution- preaching bonk, "Do Pro- ceeds from the book go to the foundation and are thereby pro- tected from income tax assess- ments. Among oilier things, the Rub- In hook calls on young people to leave iheif homes, burn their schools anil create a new socie- ty. Legal papers filed with the In- ternal Revenue Service say the foundation world, among other things, use its funds for "relief of the poor, distressed and un- derprivileged Lessen the burdens of government dc- .fend human and civil rights se- cured by law and make awards to citizens who render conspicuous service to the com- munity." The foundation, however, is 3Vz months delinquent in filing a mandatory tax statement, with IRS. The foundation was incorpo- rated in New York in May 19119. The solo trustee is Nancy S. Kurshnn, identified in the past as Rubin's wife. How much money Rubin and oilier benefactors have shoveled into the foundation could not be determined. The tax statements of tax-exempt foundations arc public records, but Rubin's foundation has not filed any lax statement. And his literary agent and lawyer aren't saying how much he's made. "We have a normal Carl Brandt, Rubin's New York literary agent said in a telc- plione interview. "Simon Schuster (publishers of "Do send over Ihe proceeds, I take my tee off the top and for- ward the rest to the foundation's mailing address." Brandl would not divulge the address. Rubin's lawyer, Abraham L. Wax, would say even less. "Write me a he told a reporter. Nor could any more be learned from Sidney M.

The foundation papers filed last year say the organization had assets of when formed. Rubin, convicted with four other members of the Chicago 7 in connection with Ihe violent demonstrations in Chicago at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, could not be reached for elaboration. Rep. William Schcrle, R-lowa, who first heard of the founda- tion, called il "a disgrace and an affront to the ordinary law- abiding citizens of this country that a man like Rubin should he granted a tax haven for the profits of his propaganda. Tlie director of the IKS should re- voke his lax exemption. "We should not be forced to subsidize our own destruction with our own taxes." Wisconsin U.

Six U.S. MPs were members members of combined Ameri- can-Vietnamese police patrols which answered a trouble call, the U.S. Command said, and came under fire. The first patrol was fired on from a rooftop and one Ameri- can was shot through both legs, the command said. As Ihe sec- ond patrol arrived, grenades were thrown down and another American was wountled. The third MP suffered a minor arm wound. The command said the MPs took cover in a building where they fired their weapons in Ihe air, a spokesman said. Another U.S. official said earlier they look part in a "gun battle." According In Ihe command, the MPs stayed under cover un- til national police reached them. One of the MPs, Sgl.

"I hope to he a winner Ihe first he lold his first news conference in the nation's capital. The record during his initial Redskins victories, 5 losses and 2 lies, was almost idcnlial to the mark he made during his first Green Bay sea- son. It also kept intact Uimhiirdi's record of never having a losing season in 10 years of pro fool- ball. A native of New York, where he was born June 11, 1313, the S-fnol-7, 170-pound barrelled- chested Lombardi played his collegiate football Fordham University. He played guard and was one of (he famed Seven Blocks of Granite in the middle 1030s. After coaching and teaching at St. Cecelia High School in Kn- glewood, N'.J., he became line coach at Fordham. In 1948, Lombardi was named assislanl lo Earl "Red" Filaik al West Point. He left the U.S. Mil- itary Academy in 1054, to join the New York Giants under Jim Lee Howell as offensive line coach. In four years with Ihe Giants, they won two divisional lilies and one world champion- ship.

"I canno! make any predic- tions on whal kind of learn I'll have. Bui I know this much: You will be proud of Ihe team because I will be proud of the learn." Lombardi was summing up his own philosophy. Along with pride, he stressed love and dedicalion. For his players, this totaled up to hard work, sacrificing success. He often said one of his Inugh- cst jobs al both Green Bay and Washington was to do away with a defeatist aUilmte. "De- featists won't be with Ihe club very he said.

COLOR A DO CITY After deliberating five hours Wednesday without reaching a jurors in the Robert Monleilh murder trial were having the testimony of a key slate's witness read back lo them at mid-morning Thursday. The r.ll-male jury was to then resume i's deliberations and, under 'order of .fudge Austin MrCloud, will remain locked up until a verdict is readied. McCLOUD sent the jury lo bed at p.m. Wednesday after jurors had requested the testimony of Dr. Herman Schaffer, Abilene pediatrician who attended three- month-old Stephanie Monteith before her death on Jan. 17. Criminal Disl. Ally. Ed Paynter has contended that Montcith caused the infant's death by healing her with his 1'Mmls o'n .Ian. 10. Monloilh's 18-year-old wife, Judy, had been charged loo until charges against her were suddenly dropped Tuesday. Dr. Schaifer had testified Monday thai, in his medical opinion, the baby's death was caused by a s U bd u r a 1 (bleeding inside the skull causing pressure on Ihe l.rain) anil brain damage brought about by blows on Ihe mandible j a w area approximately one week before. THE STATE conlends that that opinion concidcs with Montcilh's admission that he "lapped" Ihc infant lightly on Ihe checks and jaw on Jan. 10. M'inleilh and his wife both tcslificd that he accidentally dropped Ihe child on her head on Jan. 13, and defense attorneys tontend Ihal this fall, and not Ihe alleged beating, was the of death. The jury has four choices for a verdict: guilty of murder with malice aforethought, guilty of murder without malice afrrclhought, guilty of aggravated assault, or not guilty. Monteith is charged with ''murder with malice and Paynter is seeking the death penalty. THE OTHKH TWO offenses of which Monleilh could be found guilty are "lesser included and carry ranges of punishment much less extreme. "Aggravated assault" is a misdemeanor offense and carries a jail term ana line, but no.prison term.
