Seek dismissal of top U.S. legal official BOSTON (AP) Some 220 delegates at the American Newspaper Guild convention have called for the "dismissal or resignation" of U.S. Attor- ney-General John N. Mitchell. The members approved unan- imously yesterday a resolution accusing Mitchell of an "attack on the constitutional guarantees of free press and free speech' which "includes the incredible actions of the government inat- tempting to muzzle newspapers in the Pentagon Papers cases."

The 38th Guild convention, representing members in Canada, the U.S., and Puerto Rico, also approved a resolution condemning "abuses against newsmen, which includes police, military and government agents, who harass, intimidate and impersonate newsmen, and who seek to block reporters and photographers from reaching sources of news." down his decision h the trial di- vision Of a federal court, said It would be a violation of "free- dom of expression" to restrain the showing of the one-hour doc- umentary written by Toronto journalist Frank Rasky.

He said: "There has not been, In my opinion, a prima facie showing fhat if this film were shown it would violate a legal right or commit a wrong or slander or libel a living person."
