Paris isolated as worst snow
in years devastates Europe
By UPI and Reuter
On the 12th day of Christmas yesterday, Europe's
worst winter storm in 15 years spread to the
Meanwhile, about 3,000 troops worked with police to
clear roads after Paris was threatened with virtual
isolation by ice and snow.
PARISIANS WERE advised to stay home over the
weekend, and weathermen predicted freezing tem-
peratures and more snow in parts of the country until
Northern France and roads leading south from the
capital have been worst hit by the current cold snap.
Main roads south of Paris had been almost cleared of
eight inches of snow, but some roads southwest of Paris
still were closed to all but emergency traffic.
ON THE FRENCH Riveria, the town of Cannes swit-
ched off the Christmas lights to save power for heating. It
even snowed in the balmy Canary Islands.
At least 141 deaths have been blamed on the severe
weather that has blanketed the continent with snow and
kept temperatures below freezing since New Year's Eve.
After day-long snowfalls Friday, large tracts of France
were still snowbound with scores of roads still blocked and
highways littered with thousands of abandoned vehicles.
AN ITINERANT French peddler found frozen to death
in his truck and a Normany farmer who died after aban-
doning his car to walk home were among the latest
fatalities in the big freeze-up.
Three other persons died in traffic accidents in Italy's
icy roads and three children died in a fire in Hungary
when they were left alone in a house where a faulty stove
had been pressed into service to keep out the cold.
UNITED NATIONS (AP)-A report

capitalist countries eventually will
have to ask communist nations to help
solve the world's energy problems.
The report also says Western leaders,
and especially President Carter, should
do more to drive home the idea that the
energy problem is serious.

"ANY GLOBAL approach to energy

Photos of sex victim found with
Chicago murder suspect s effects
CHICAGO (UPI) - Color
photographs of an unwilling sex victim
- one of dozens of young men police
say were drugged by John Wayne Gacy
-; have been recovered from the
suspected mass-sex slayer's home, in-
vestigators said yesterday.
Two , color Polaroid prints of Robert
Sipusich, 23, were found among Gacy's
possessions, police said. One showed
the young man sprawled across Gacy's
bed, nude and unconscious.
SIPUSICH TOLD police Gacy lured
him to his modest ranch-style home in
Norwood Park Township four months
ago with the offer of drugs, then
chloroformed him and sexually at-
, Gacy, 36, has told police he killed 32
young men and boys after having sex
with them. He said he buried 27 bodies
ip his dirt crawl space and dumped five
others in the Des Plaines River, after
his makeshift graveyard became too
crowded to accomodate more bodies.
Twenty-nine recovered bodies have
been linked to Gacy, but he has only
been charged with one murder - that
of Robert Piest, 15, of Des Plaines.
PIEST'S 13ODY has yet to be found
but investigators said they have
discovered the first evidence linking
Gacy to Piest. A down jacket belonging
to Piest was recovered from under-
neath Gacy's laundry room - exactly
where Gacy told investigators he hid it.
Piest disappeared the day he was to
have seen Gacy about a part-time job
with Gacy's construction company -
one of many lures police said Gacy used
to get young men and boys to his home.
Another was the promise of drugs.
Investigators said Gacy, who was
originally picked up on marijuana
charges, may have had access to many
different kinds of drugs because he
remodeled many drug stores.
IT APPEARS Sipusich was a victim
of that ploy. He told investigators he

last fall and Gacy offered him am-
Gacy said they would have to go to his
home to pick up the drugs - only part
of Gacy's extensive private collection
that he bragged about, Sipusich said.
Within an hour, Sipusich said he was

Sipusich said he screamed when he
first regained consciousness and saw
Gacy on top of him.

that rag again and I passed out,"
He said he came to at dawn and jum-
