They said then they feared Manson's three women follow- ers planned to take the stand and incriminate themselves. Resting, they said, was a way to stop them. The women turned Uie tables Friday morning when they refused to speak outside the jury's presence. Then Manson volunteered to testify. Sometimes verging on tears, Manson spoke of his women co- defendants and other young per- sons who formed his nomadic clan which lived communally at the suburban Spahn movie ranch. Rebutting testimony of a wit- ness who said he ordered the killings, Manson said: "I don't even like to eat meat because that is how much I am against killing. So, you have got the guy that is against killing on the witness stand, and you are all asking him to kill you." 2 shot, dead in beer parlor ENDAKO, B.C. (CP) Alex Melntosh, 44, of Fraser Lake, B.C. was remanded to Nov. 30 ivhcn he appeared in provincial court in Burns Lake charged with two counts of non-capital murder, following the recent beer parlor shooting of a man and a woman at the Emiako Shot as they sat in the hotel were Kathleen Gunnonoot, 42, of Fraser Lake, and Arthur Schmidt, 36, of Bndako, live in UN his foot in the door following the voting on Chinese representa- tion in the 127-counlry General Assembly Friday. The annual Albanian resolu- tion calling for expulsion of Na- ionalist China and the scaling of the Communists was ap- the first lime in his- tory by a three-vote majority. Last year it was defeated by eight votes. Canada, which recognized Pe- king last month, voted yes for the first time this year. Tlio three-vote majority was not enough to pass because pre- viously the assembly had given a small majority to an Ameri- can resolution saying that pas- sage required a two-thirds ma- jority of those voting. The majority for ftb resolu- tion, significantly, fell to 14 from 23 Jast year. A two-thirds majority would have required 67 votes for passage. Canada also voted in favor of the American two-thirds resolu- tion. The votes Friday were: Albanian: 51 for, J against and 25 abstentions. Last year it was 48 for, 58 against and 21 ab- stentions, including Canada, American: 66 for, 52 against and seven abstentions. Last year: n for, 48 against and four abstentions. Tiie atmosphere in the blue and gold chamber was electric just before the voting and sev- eral times President Edvard Hambro of Norway had to call for order. After the Albanian vote, applause prevented him from announcing the result for about one minute. Sixteen countries changed their vote on (he Albanian reso- lution and 12 on the two-thirds majority question. Only two countries changed from yes to no on the Albanian. Observers said the erosion In the votes that was seen this year can be expected to con- tinue. They said the voting showed that many countries are in a "transitional mood" as in- dicated by their switch to ab- stention. And the Americans, the great- est opponent of Hed China over Ihe years, gave strong Mica- lion that they are considering a change in vote next year. Some informed officials looked to France as the one sin- gle country responsible for lha dramatic change in vote results. France was working on her for- mer African colonies for a change in vote. To a degree this was successful. Obssrvers say that France, strong believer in Communist Chinese membership in the UN, can be expected to have more success in a pressure campaign before the session of the assem- bly nest fall. RECOGNITION IMPORTANT Meanwhile, as post-mortems continue, it appears that Can- ada's recognition of Communist China, and the formula used for that recognition, is looming large. Canada and Chliia found in talks in Stockholm a way to deal with Peking's demand that the world recognize its sover- eignty over Formosa (National. 1st The formula, also adopted by Italy, involved Canada's "tak- ing note" of Peking's claim to sovereignty over Forsoma. Manhunt follows holdup EDMONTON (CP) One of the largest manhunt's in Ed- monton's history is under way for the three men who held up an armored truck Friday, es- caped with shot a by- stander and bashed two guards. The bystander, George Malysb, 33, was in serious con- dition in hospital after a bullet slammed through his right arm, broke a rib and lodged in his right chest cavity. Two bandits had swooped in on two employees of Loomis Armoured Car Service just out- side the Park Plaza Simpsons- Sears store as they carried about in cash to their truck in four sacks.
