ATLANTA (UPI) - A top medical
examiner, likening the case to that of
"Jack the Ripper," said yesterday he
believes one person with a sexual or,
racial "hangup" is responsible for the
slayings of 15 Atlanta black children.
Dr. Larry Howard, director of the
Georgia Crime Laboratory, also
disclosed that at least one of the victims
was garroted with a rope.
Eighteen children have disappeared,
and authorities previously said they
believed more than one killer was in-
THE BODIES OF 15 of the children
have been found, and the three other
children are officially listed as missing
in the macabre string of murders and
disappearances that started in July
Referring to the case of Terry Loren-
zo Pue, 15, one of the most recent vic-
tims, Dr. Howard said, "a rope or some
rough material had gone around the
neck. I suspect it was in the nature of a
rope. It had a woven pattern.
"I assume he was garroted from the
back," Howard said in an interview.

"That's the way you would approach
somebody if you wanted to do'that."
HOWARD SAID the killer had used a
"Japanese stranglehold" on another
victim whose body was examined in a
county laboratory. Such a hold involves
wedging a person's neck in the crook of
the elbow. "It's a very difficult hold
to break," said Howard.
Pue's body was found Jan. 23. He had
been strangled, as had four others.
Some of the victims have been stabbed,
others shot or asphyxiated. The cause
of death in five of the killings has not
been established.
Howard, who has investigated hun-
dreds of murders during the 11 years he
has been head of the state's forensic
services, said one man is responsible
for the slayings of the 15 children.
"I suspect it is one person," said
Howard. "There is such a dearth of in-
formation. When there is such a lack of
information, it's always one person."
The killer, said Howard, apparently
is a person "with some kind of sexual
hangup or racial hatred." But he said
investigators have found nothing to in-
dicate the race of the killer.

Dougherty would not say precisely
what libraries he will ultimately
recommend for elimination, but he did
say that those named in the contingen-
cy plans are not the most essential in
the system.
The Social Work Library contains
materials that probably exist in other
locations, Doughtery said, and the
smaller libraries may be too
MARK SULLIVAN, a technical
assistant at the Bureau of Government

Library, said that his unit acts as a
departmental library for faculty mem-
bers of the Institute of Public Policy
Studies, rather than serving the
average LSA student.
When deciding on the cuts, Dougherty
said highest priority will be given to the
library's distinguished research collec-
tions, which he compares to those at
Harvard and Yale.
Lowest on the priority list are ac-
tivities the director said could be reac-
tivitated if the budget were restored at
some future time.

FALN members found guilty
CHICAGO-A federal court jury found 10 suspected members of the Puer-
to Rican terrorist group FALN guilty yesterday on federal charges stem-
ming from bombings and attempted bombings in the Chicago area.
The 10, termed by a prosecutor, "members of a clandestine army" with no
regard for the law or human life, were convicted on all counts of seditious
conspiracy, armed robbery, interstate transportation of stolen vehicles and
violations of weapons laws.
The defendants were not in court after the trial's opening. When they
disrupted proceedings and contended they could not be tried in U.S. courts
because they were prisoners of war in their fight for Puerto Rican indepen-
dence: They refused to present a defense, saying they should be tried by an
international tribunal.
Dwyer reunited with family
NEW YORK-Free-lance writer Cynthia Dwyer, expelled from Iran as a
spy, returned home yesterday to a joyous family reunion at the end of a nine-
month stay in a Tehran prison as America's "53rd hostage."
Dwyer, 49, of Amherst, N.Y., was reunited privately with her husband,
John, and their children at New York's Kennedy Airport where her flight
arrived from Zurich, Switzerland.
Dwyer went to Iran last April to write about the Iranian revolution as a
sympathizer of the new regime, but was arrested May 5 following the abor-
tive U.S. hostage rescue attempt. She spent nine months in Tehran's
notorious Evin prison on espionage charges.
State differs with survey
LANSING-State officials denied yesterday that Michigan-once the base
of a booming auto industry-now has developed the most unattractive
climate for manufacturers in the continental United States.
But a top business leader agreed with the essential findings of the study by
the Chicago accounting firm Alexander Grant & Co.-that Michigan's high
taxes and wage rates, strong unionism and expensive worker's and unem-
ployment compensation systems give it the worst business climate among
the 48 contiguous states.
Results of the study-similar to earlier findings-were released Tuesday.
State board approves
borrowing of $500 million
LANSING-The State Administrative Board approved yesterday the long-
delayed borrowing of $500 million to ease Michigan's cash flow problems.
The unanimous vote at a special meeting presided over by Gov. William
Milliken approved the unusual negotiated sale of short-term notes to a New
York-based syndicate headed by the investment firm of Solomon Brothers at
a rate of 10.5 percent-described as reasonable under current tight money
market conditions.
The funds-mainly needed to cover upcoming school aid and revenue
sharing payments-will be paid back in September.
Body of lost boy found in
California wilderness
SAN DIEGO-A lone hiker came across the body of a 9-year-old boy lost
for four days in the wilderness of mile-high Mount Palomar yesterday, two
miles from a base camp where 400 people were taking part in San Diego
County's biggest search.
Discoyery of the bodymarked a tragic ending to the massive search for
Jimmy Beveridge, son of Larry and Jackie Beveridge of Spring Valley,
Calif. The boy became separated from his brothers, Rob: 6, and Jeff, 7, on a
hiking trail during a family camping trip last Saturday.
The hunt continued for one of the searchers who has not been seen since
Koch insults residents
New York Mayor Edward Koch said yesterday he only meant to praise
when he implied he could detect residents of drought-stricken Greenwich,
Conn., by their smell, but some Greenwich residents were not flattered.
Koch has been trying to encourage city residents to save water, and on
Tuesday he pointed to the Greenwich situation. Koch noted that with Green-
wich reservoirs down to a 27-day supply, townspeople have been asked to cut
water use by 60 percent. "That means people there don't take showers every
day any more," explained New York's mayor. He proceeded: "It's getting
so you can tell when someone comes from Greenwich, Connecticut. We don't
want that to happen in New York City."
Greenwich First Selectman Ruth Sims called the remark crude and said it
made light of a "serious situation."
Proxmire urges more cuts
WASHINGTON-Sen. William Proxmire (D-Wis.), long-time foe of excess
spending, yesterday called President Reagan's proposed $50 million budget
cuts "far too feeble" to avoid disastrous deficits and more inflation.

And President Ronnin Barnard of the U.S. Savings Leauge Association
urged adoption of "double duty" tax cuts that will encourage both savings
and investments to stimulate the economy and fight inflation.
