Mur1er City, U.S.A.
The record setting Detroit homicide toll for 1973 has
been broken already. Detroit police originally announced
750 homicides for the city last year, but revised that to
751 following an autopsy of a man who died on Dec. 31.
Police said Walter Perry, 73, was beaten to death. The
autopsy revealed he suffered a broken neck when at-
tacked by a pair of assailants outside of a Detroit bar
on New Year's Eve. The broken neck was listed as the
cause of death. His attackers made off with $65.
The devil made him do it
A Mount Clemens, Mich. man, who said he struck his
wife and children to save them from the devil, was
sentenced to life in prison Tuesday for beating his wife
to death with a baseball bat. Jimmy McDonald, describ-
ed by his 13-year-old daughter Clara as a "religious
nut" who made the members of the family kneel and
pray for hours, testified he decided to kill his family
May 2 after reading the Bible for several hours. Mc-
Donald told them the Bible "lit up" and warned him
his family would come under the influence of Satan.
"This was a senseless, brutal and vicious killing," said
Circuit Court Judge Frank Jeannette. "Nothing I can do
is punishment enough."
Woman burned up
A Laketon Township woman is burned up over a tele-
vision announcer's advice. And so is part of her car.
Muskegon County sheriff's deputies said the woman
followed an announcer's tip to put a blanket and light
bulb under the car hood for better starting on cold
mornings. Deputies said the light bulb apparently ig-
nited the blanket, causing about $50 damage to her

there before," it said. The previous record at Vostock
was not even close-minus 6 degrees.

amid signs of an imminent agreement on a disengage-

The White House and State Department said that
Kissinger, making his second trip to the Middle East
in less than a month, would confer with Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat, who is recuperating from

bronchitis at Aswan, and then fly to Israel.
The trip is expected to last less than a week. No
other stops are planned, State Department spokes-

not be ruled out.

Democrats deny




over Second Ward council contest

Charges that the Democrats and
Republicans have conspired to
eliminate the Human Rights Par-
ty (HRP) yesterday drew a strong
denunciation from a high-level
Democrat who demanded any proof
of such a deal be made public.
Democratic Second Ward chair-
man Thomas Wieder termed the
allegation made earlier this week
by HRP City Council member
Jerry DeGrieck (First Ward) "to-
tally and completely without sub-

duce evidence to support the
charge. DeGrieck yesterday said
no concrete evidence existed and
that he had never claimed a "di-
rect deal" between the two par-
ties ever took place.
The council member alleged
that the failure of the Republicans

dominated Second Ward in next

from a scheme to "destroy" HRP,
of which Democrats had prior

The Second Ward is HRP's
strongest ward, although the party
lost a close election to the Demo-
crats there last year. Many HRP
leaders fear that persons who
might be expected to vote Repub-
lican will instead cast their bal-
lots for the Democrat, since no
GOP entry is in the race.
ALL THREE parties recognize
that Democratic chances for vic-
tory have improved with the lack
of a Republican candidate. "Dem-

CLEVELAND, Ohio ,:P)-Robert
White, president of Kent State Uni-

he hoped a federal grand jury
probe of the incident would "clear
up the record."
White, called to testify yesterday,
pledged full cooperation, saying he
would answer jurors' questions "as
best I can."
ASKED WHETHER he felt the
record now was not clear, White
answered, "No, but there are a lot
of questions in people's minds. The
grand jury should be able to an-
swer those questions."
The grand jury is looking into
the May, 4, 1970, confrontation be-
tween Ohio National Guard troops

testing U.S. military involvement in
Cambodia. The Justice Department
