(Coronado, California) Commander Lloyd Bucher's attorney, E. Miles Harvey says has no plans of calling upon high-ranking names at witnesses. Testimony heard from engine room crew. Some say they thought of disabling ship's engines, but not ordered to do so. Only 1 knew of ship's real mission. All expressed loyalty to Bucher. [BUCHER - asserts he's delighted to go back on stand; captivity period next. More close-knit relationship with crew because of captivity together, than any crew ever served with. Would like to serve with men again.]
