That testimony from sev- eral witnesses was one of the most dramatic revela- tions at a Coast Guard hearing in the Times Bldg. Thursday. Witnesses identified the occupants of the- boat as Harry J. Morris, 44, of 4215 Walnut Ave., Lynwood, an accountant, and his wife, Leota, 40. BOTH ON the advice of their attorney, refused to testify other than to give their names and addresses. Their basis for refusal was that they might incriminate themselves. Victims in the Cerritos Channel accident were Su- san Lynn Hamilton, who remains in Seaside Hospital in critical condition, and her 1 1 -year-old brother, Michael. Both were in an 8-foot punt which, witnesses tes- tified, was struck by a cabin cruiser. t THE COAST GUARD hearing was conducted by Cmdr. L. H.
