(AP) Farm labor leader Cesar Chavez was free today to spend Christmas with his family after 20 days in a jail cell for con- tempt of court in a continuing lettuce boycott. The California Supreme Court Wednesday ordered Chavez re- leased on his own recognizance pending a hearing by the high court on his claim that an in- junction he was accused of vio- lating deprived him of constitu tional rights. The high court's 6-to-l ruling also allows Chavez and his AFL-CIO United Farm Workers Organizing Committee to con- tinue the lettuce boycott until the court has held the hearing for which a date is still to be set.

Sales of vitamin C shoiv boost Increased sales of vitamin are reported by several dru stores in the Lethbridge area It has been indicated c some pharmacists that peopl may be following the advice o Linus Pauling, Nobel Prize- winning chemist, who recently endorsed the use of massive doses of vitamin C to fight the common cold. Of several drug stores called all reported increased sales of vitamin C. Most reported, how- ever, that area doctors have long prescribed the use of the vitamin for patients with colds. One druggist reported nearly a 25 per cent increase to his sales of vitamin C, but be- lieved that people might really be taking much more than was really necessary. All the druggists called said that a heavy dosage of the vita- min would not be harmful. Any excess would simply not be used by the body. One druggist reported that in his opinion vitamin C was not helpful in all situations. He said that vitamin C was gen- erally beneficial to the gums and helped to control fever during a cold, but that right now its benefits were somewhat exaggerated. WASHINGTON (AP) A major reorganization of mili- ary intelligence has been or- ered by Defence Secretary lelvin Laird following charges he army carried out a vast spy operation against civilians in the United States. In a move to tighten civilian control over the military, Laird [irected that command of the defence intelligence agency be] removed from the joint chiefs oi staff, the Pentagon's ranking military body, and placed di rectly under his authority. "I want to be certain that de partment of defence intelligence md counter-intelligence activi lies are completely consistent with constitutional rights, all other legal provisions and na- tional security he said "These activities must be con- ducted in a manner which rec- ognizes and preserves individ- ual human rights." Laird's orders, to "take effect at the earliest date practical' but not later than Feb. 1, were spelled out in a memorandum to the joint chiefs, the civilian sec- retaries of the army, navy and air force and the directors of the various defence agencies. Although the defence chief did not refer directly to disclosures last week that army intelligence agents had spied on hundreds of civilians, he indicated this was one 0f the determining factors for his action and made refer- ence to "abuses." DESTROYED FILES Daniel Henkin, chief Pentagon spokesman, declined to explain what Laird meant by abuses, but noted the army was ordered ast June to destroy its volumi- nous intelligence files on civil- ans considered potential trou- pe makers. For at least the last year, there have been charges in Con- gress and from former army in- elligence agents that military authorities were overzealous in conducting surveillance of per sons involved in anti-war activi ies or leftist political groups. Laird told Congress earlier this month these activities, in stituted during the Johnson ad ministration when the army was called on to help quell civilian disturbances, have been drasti SILENT DRILLING PARIS (Reuter) A French engineer has developed a si- lencer for road drills which cuts down their deafening noise by 90 per cent.

A British Law Society spokesman says: "There simply won't be enough judges or buildings to meet the demand." The Divorce Reform Act, effective Jan. 1, is the first major change in matrimonial laws since 1937, when cruelty, desertion and insanity were added to adultery as grounds for ending a marriage. The new law allows unhappy couples to cancel marriages after two years of living apart, h" both partners agree. After five years apart divorce will be virtually automatic even if one partner objects.
