Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 28, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Three Episcopal priests bless the offerings of bread and wine during the consecration of Holy Communion af Riverside church in New York Sunday. The ordination of the women as Episcopal priests is still in dispute. Performing the ceremony are, from left, the Rev. Alison Cheek, the Rev. Carter Heyward and the Rev. Jeannette Piccard. Queen's Cousin Gets Probation in Mercy Killing KKAUING, England (Al') "I laid her on her face so she would not swallow her loiwue. 1 wrapped her in a blanket so she would nol Liet cold My intention was that she would die quickly, peace- fully and painlessly." Police (inoled Klixabelh Wise, a (bird cousin of Queen Klixabelh II, as recounting in these words how she killed her ll-month-old blind and deaf daughter, F.mma, on .June after doctors told her the child had no hope of living. I'larrd on Probation Mrs. Wise, 38. pled Ktiilty to manslaughter Friday on grounds of diminished rcapun- sihility and was placed on probation for 12 mouths. meaning if she commits no oilier offense in that time she will not receive further le.Ljal punishment. "I regard Ibis as an ex- treme case even among excep- tional cases." Judge Kenneth Jones [old Mrs. Wise. "In my judgment you have suffered enough." The court was told that three-quarters of the child's Drain hud been destroyed in disease and thai she could not swallow and was fed by a tube through the nose. The prosecution said Mrs. Wise admitted giving the child barbiturates crushed in milk after doctors told her Kmnia hail no hope of recovery. Mrs. Wise, separated from her husband, was staying with her friend. Jennifer Cubbitl, when the child died. Mrs. Cubbitt testified: "I have never seen a maternal insiinct so strong in any Soviet Killer By harry James MOSCOW (IJPI "My sis- ter's husband told me to be careful." a woman office worker said. "I'm going home early lonight and taking a taxi." She was one of a growing number of Muscovites trou- bled by persistent rumors in the capital about a psycho- pathic, killer stalking women in Moscow. The murder scare is grow- ing by word of mouth in the absence of hard news in the official media. The Soviet press virtually ignores crime news unless used to point up a moral. Police Visits Soviet sources say, however, that police have visleil a number of factories, offices and schools in the capital to warn women and children not to go out alone at night. An official spokesman said Monday police are looking (or a blond man. about 25 years old. for questioning in connec- tion with the murder of one woman. Soviet sources said there seems lo be more than usual police activity and document checks in the capital. Hut a Western traveler said he no- ticed nothing unusual during a drive to Borodino, west of the city. The rumors going around the capital generally say the killer has slain at least seven women in Moscow. The stories say the murders have taken place in dark lobbies or eleva- tors of apartment buildings. Gruesome Version One of the more gruesome versions says Soviet authori- ties found the decapitated head of one of the women victims in a Moscow pond. The rumors tend to be vague. One says the murders have taken place in the capi- tal's Tagauka district. An- other mentions the Kievskii region. Others don't bother to mention any location. The last Moscow murder scare, however, had some ba- sis in fact. The rumors pre- ceded the arrest of a man in for five apparently sense- less slayings in the capital. The murder scare isn't the only rumor in the capital. Another says scores or even hundreds of escaped Soviet prisoners are on the loose in Moscow.

On AUK. 15 the house of bishops, one of the .uoveniin.u chambers of the Proteslant Episcopal Church, expressed the opinion lliat the ordinations were invalid.

The bishops' act did not satisfy the women, .lust before the service, they said, "While we rejoice in this action, we must note that women do not exist merely in principle. We are women and we are priests." e NEW YORK (AP) Fat people are even-tempered and jolly and smile all the lime, right'.' Wrong. Members of the National Assn. To Aid Fat Americans.

By Abigail Van Huron AHIJY: "Slumped" asked how to say no to sex. since she was a divorcee and couldn't use (lint old "I'm sav- ing myself for marriage" excuse.' You told her she didn't need an excuse just give him a flat "no." Well, lliat would run a guy off permanently, which may nol be what the lady wants to do. Perhaps she would like to get to know him belter. I suggest that she say. "Don't rush me." Thai's not a flat and she doesn't run the risk of hurling a man's ego.

Devere F. Pentony, dean of the school of behavioral and social sciences, said Friday that Miss Davis had asked for Mart-lime work but was (old (here were no such positions open. And even if there were, Pentony said, she would have been rejected because of her reputation. Miss Davis was fired as a philosophy instructor al UCLA because she was a Commun- ist. She also was acquitted of charges resulting from the 11171) Marin comity courthouse slinoloul which left four per- sons including a judge dead.
