Wife unconscious Navy man arraigned in Newark slaying NEWARK A 34-year-old Navy petty officer was ar-. raigned in his hospital bed yesterday on charges of mur- der and attempted murder as the result of a shooting spree that left his wife seriously in- jured and her ex-husband dead. Herman M. Anderson, an in- structor at San Diego Naval was charged with the offenses in his heavily-guard- ed ward at Highland Hospital in Oakland before Fremont Municipal Court Judge M. 0. Sabraw. A Jan. 9 date was set for plea. Sabraw assigned the public defender's office to represent Anderson, who was arrested after the a.m. Thursday tragedy at the home of Thomas Leone. 4810 Wind- ermere Drive, Newark. THE SUSPECT'S wife, Don- na, 30, was reported still un- conscious and in critical con- dition last night in Oak Knoll Naval Hospital, Oakland. An- derson himself was listed in fair condition, recovering from a bullet wound in the head. Newark police say they have uncovered no motive for the triple shooting, during which Anderson reportedly turned a .22-caliber revolver on himself after the gunplay. Detectives have talked to the suspect and say they have a statement from him. The dead man, Fred Laxo, 32, is Mrs. Anderson's ex-hus- band. Fremont court records show she filed a complaint July 2, 1965, against Laxo charging failure to support their two minor children, Linda, then 9, and Fred, then 7, between August 1964 and July Laxo was arrested but later posted bail. When he failed to appear in court a no- bail warrant was issued. His trial finally was held on July 7, 1967, and he was scheduled to be sentenced July 24. HOWEVER, HE failed to show up for the second lime and the court issued a bench warrant, which never was served. A week ago Laxo called his Fremont attorney, Gilbert De Borba, and asked that his case be placed on yesterday's court calendar. The action was withdrawn when Laxo was killed. De Borba said Mrs. Ander- son had agreed to drop the charges against her former husband if he would agree to pay all future child support. De Borba had planned to ask the court to refer the matter to the probation department so a settlement could be worked out. According to police, Ander- son was on weekend leave from his San Diego land duty, where he wcs assigned about six months ago after a stint on the USS Klondike. Police said Anderson en- tered the Leone home and after a brief exchange of words shot his wife, and then Laxo, both sitting in the home's kitchen-dining room.

Ag- new met with President Chiang Kai-shek Saiurday to discuss Nationalist Chi- nese concern over America's peaceful overtures toward Communist China. Despite Agnew's assurances that Formosa had no cause for alarm over the American contacts with Peking, in- formed sources said Chiang stressed the dangers of Ihe American move and the pos- sible effects on non-Commu- nist Asian nations. On his arrival from Vief- n a m Friday, Agnew told Chiang that 'Hhe peace and prosperity of this area is of special importance to us, and we are pledged to stand firm to commitments we have made to our allies."
