(AP) A week ago today a horse named Sonny unlatched a'tiam door and walked 20 steps up a narrow stairway into the hayloft. His owner, Paul Gallaty, said the 4-year-old gelding apparently wanted for once to get his absolute fill of hay "he's always eating." ----------------------------------------------In due course, Gallaty missed Sonny and went look- ing for him. He was mildly astonished lo find his horse gazing down at him from a second floor window of tlie bam. Gallaty tried lo lead Sonny down the stairs, hut the horse, weighing pounds, refused to come along. His owner recruited a dozen helpers but Sonny stood pat. Gallaty Iried blindfolding Son- ny, but the liorse balked when- ever lie came to the steps. A vetcraniarian gave Sonny a sedative, but woozy as he was the horse still wouldn't go down the stairs. Gallaty cleared the hay out of the loft and tried three days ol starvation, figuring Sonny would succumb lo the pangs of. hunger. Sonny didn't. A motorist on a road which nins past the barn was so slar- tied by the sight of a horse look- ing out of a second floor window that he drove inlo a ditch. All else having failed, Gallaty bought 200 bales of hay. He built these Monday inlo an outsizcd stairway leading from lite ground lo the hayloft's outside doors. The vet gave Sonny another sedative. Hopes were tied around Hie Iiorse's neck, legs and body. Then they dragged him through the doors and down the hay sleps, bumpity-bump, bumpil.y-bump, all the way back to terra firaria.

Calling themselves the Con- cerned Officers Movement, about 25 Washington-based offi- cers, moslly Navy men. have banded together lo provide a fo- rum for what they say is grow- ing disillusionment among their ranks with Ihe Indochina war. A leader says the small group is probably Ihe first antiwar or- ganization at tlio officer level. "Most of Ihe junior officers are somewhat disillusioned about [he war in LI. (j.g.)

The lieutenant said the news- leltcr is being pul out in confor- mily wilh regulations, since nei- ther government facilities, materials nor lime are used.
