Taylor, then the brand new commander of the 101st Airborne Division, now the nation’s top military man as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Tourists trace the routes of the Allied landings on Normandy 20 years ago tomorrow on a giant wall map at Omaha Beach, France. By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — “Mon general, use this bullet on the Boche.” Thus did an old French farmer welcome Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor to Normandy 20 years ago. A few hours earlier, in the predawn darkness, Taylor had leaped from a low-flying transport plane to lead the first wave of U.S. paratroopers in the historic assault. Uncertain where he was, Taylor had walked up to a French farmhouse, knocked on the door and asked for help in getting his bearings. The old farmer, overjoyed that the Americans had come, disappeared for a moment and • ^ l' then returned with his bullet— v Iv'^.a.4 a token 0f his hope for victory over the Germans. Today, Taylor is the top military man in the United States, and he still recalls D-Day as “the most dramatic day I ever spent in my life.” This says much—for few men living have witnessed as many dramatic and historic days. In his time, Taylor has slipped alone into Nazi-held Rome to negotiate with the Italians, confronted the Russians as U.S. commander in Berlin, led in some of the most desperate greatest enemy — fog. This weather was a surprise. We thought we had a clear night and yet there was a great bank of fog. The planes flew in a formation of V’s—almost touching wings—in very tight formation as we crossed the Channel. “The fog was not continuous fighting in Korea, sat at Presi- —here it was cloudy and there dent John F.

Now Taylor wears four stars as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He also wears 40 decor ations, many for valor. At the time of Normandy, he had only recently pinned on his second star and taken command of the 101st Airborne Division in England. The assault of Nazi Germany’s “Fortress Europe” was the tOlst’s baptism in battle. It also was Taylor’s first combat jump. Here, after refreshing his recollection, is the way Taylor described that day: “This was the first action of the 101st—it had to go right. I wanted to be sure that the spirit and confidence of the men were high. I visited all units in their 17 departure areas and talked to the men in groups from 1,000 down to 24. “We had an early heavy dinner about 6 o’clock. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower accompanied us to the departure airfield. About ll o’clock at night— it was still daylight there—Gen. Eisenhower went from group to group talking to the men as they got into their parachutes. As we got into the air, darkness had just begun to fall. We circled around over southern England and waited for the transport fleets to fall into formation. It was a beautiful sight as we fell into line, straightened out and headed for France. “As we got closer we saw our “While we were still in the-fog, on came the red light,! which means — Stand up and check equipment.

Reardon. 36, of New Cumberland, found guilty of second degree manslaughter Tuesday, has been filed in Common Pleas Court. Reardon was convicted after a jury deliberated 4 hours over his responsibility for the death of a twin brother, James K., in a traffic accident on April 13, 1963, on Route 212, east of Route 8. Atty. Thad Bowers, counsel for Reardon, based his motion for a new trial on 4 major reasons. The lawyer charges Prosecutor Harlan Spies with irregularity in court procedure because he permitted the trial to proceed without notifying the court that certain prosecution witnesses had not been served with summons. Only after the jury had been impaneled and a witness had been examined and cross-examined did Spies move for a continuance of the trial, Bowers notes in his petition. Spies is also charged with having used improper legal language in challenging on of his own witnesses in open court and before the jury. Bowers contends the prosecutor’s language had tended to inflame and prejudice the jury against his client. Bowers had asked for a mistrial and was overruled at the time the incident occurred. His motion for a new trial, the defense counsel points out 4 errors of law occurring dur ing the trial: (I)—Refusal of the court to order a direct verdict in fa,vor Dover High’s 164 members of of the defendant at the end of | the 1964 graduating class staged the state’s case;    their senior banquet last night (2)—The court’s disposing of in the high school cafeteria.
