54.1. U. S. v. Powell, et al. (ND Calif. S. Div., #35065.) For facts, see IV DOCKET 3. Prior to trial prosecution notified Ct. and Defs. they did not intend to introduce evidence as to falsity of certain statements printed in China Monthly Review which indictment alleged to be false. Jan. 26, 1959: Ct., in summarizing issues made by indictment for jury, omitted these issues. U. S. attorney did likewise. Defense motion to dismiss on ground indictment had in effect been amended and changed substantially from that returned by Grand Jury denied. Jan. 29: Prosecution attempted to prove Defs.' magazine had been distributed in prisoner-of-war camps in North Korea and there used to indoctrinate American POW's. Defense objected: evidence outside issues made by indictment and outside scope of statute, 18 USC § 2388, which is limited to acts within U. S. and admiralty and maritime jurisdiction of U. S.

During argument, outside presence of jury, U. S. atty. observed that offered evidence would be admissible to prove treason. Ct. replied: "I would agree with you that the evidence so far presented in this case would be prima facie—I am not ruling on what a jury would do—would be prima facie sufficient to sustain a verdict of guilty under the treason statute. * * * It appears now that the evidence already introduced would be prima facie sufficient to support and sustain a verdict of guilty under 2381." Many newspapers and radio and TV news commentators told public judge had said Defs. were guilty of treason. Defs. made motion for mistrial. U. S. atty. did not oppose it, felt some prejudice might have been caused by newspaper coverage given Ct's. remarks.

Jan. 30: Ct. granted mistrial motion: U. S. Atty. filed complaint for treason against each of 3 Defts., requested they be held without bail pending return of indictment. Ct. released on own recognizance on treason complaint. No treason indictment yet field.
