Investigators say Daniel
shooting was homicide
LIBERTY, Texas-The sheriff investigating the shooting death of former
Texas House Speaker Price Daniel Jr. said authorities "know who did it,"
but were waiting yesterday for an autopsy report and to question the dead
man's wife.
The 39-year-old Daniel, son and namesake of one of the state's most
prominent political leaders, was found shot Monday night in a hall between
the kitchen and carport at his home in this southeast Texas town. Officials
said he was slain with a .22-caliber rifle found in a bedroom of the house.
Liberty County Sheriff, "Buck" Eckols said no charges were filed im-
mediately. He said no action would be taken until he received the autopsy
report and questioned Daniel's wife, Vickie, who recently filed for divorce.
Reagan, Senate act quickly
on Cabinet appointments
WASHINGTON-President Reagan, in one of his first official actions,
formally nominated his Cabinet yesterday, only minutes after the
inauguration. The Senate called a mid-afternoon session to begin confirming
his choices.
Reagan signed the commissions for the 13 members of the Cabinet and for
four appointed to Cabinet-level posts ata brief ceremony in the small but or-
nate President's Room, just off the Senate chamber.
All of Reagan's nominees appeared certain of confirmation, including his
most controversial appointment, Alexander Haig as secretary of state.
Labor secretary nominee Raymond Donovan was still under investigation
by the Senate Labor Committee and is the only nominee who has not been
approved by committee. Donovan's construction firm has been accused of
being involved in illicit deals with unions and organized crime.
Psychiatrist challenges
Garwood insanity plea
A prosecution psychiatrist testified yesterday Robert Garwood, the only
Vietnam veteran to be tried as a turncoat, was sane during the nearly 14
years he spent behind enemy lines.
The defense claims Garwood, charged with desertion and collaboration
with the enemy, was driven insane by Viet Cong torture and should not be
held responsible for his actions.
"He gave me a good, clear account of his conduct during that time
period," said Navy Capt. Patrick O'Connell, chief of psychiatry at the Naval
Aerospace Medical Institute at Pensacola, Fla. "This account did not in-
clude any description of symptoms I would look for in a mental disefse in a
psychiatric sense."
O'Connell is one of several psychiatrists expected to testify as the
prosecution attempts to knock down the defense's case.
Kelley urges refund to go
with gas rate increase
LANSING-Attorney General Frank Kelley urged yesterday that refund
provisions be attached to any Michigan Consolidated Gas Co. rate increase,
warning the firm might seek massive hikes if a pending divestiture takes
Kelley charged the parent American Natural Resources Co. is likely to
drop Michigan Consolidated this summer and may be "skimming off"
valuable storage rights and other assets for less than their fair value.
The result, Kelley said, could leave the newly independent com-
pany-Michigan's largest natural gas firm-"sick, and in immediate need of
enormous rate increases."
Michigan Consolidated President Robert Stewart said the separation bet-
ween the two companies would have "no significant effect on the company's
future rate increase needs."
Company officials said a decision is expected early this year on
divestiture. They had no immediate comment on Kelley's skimming charge.
Mao's widow may get life
sentence, not death
PEKING-China paved the way yesterday for an expected decision to
spare Mao Tse-tung's widow from the firing squad and instead sentence her
to hard labor on a remote farm for the rest of her life.
China legislator Liu Fuzhi said that Gang of Four leader Jiang Qing and
several other defendants could be executed for their crimes of treason
during the 1966-67 Cultural Revolution but added "the death penalty may be
suspended for two years during which the prisoner will be helped to reform
through labor."
If a defendant shows reform, the sentence can be reduced to life im-
prisonment, Liu said.
For over a week, diplomatic sources have reported that China's leadership
had decided on this compromise to spare the life of the widow of the late
Communist Party chairman.
