Black Magic Scare Grips Britain LONDON (AP) Pillaged graves, suicide by curse, dis- membered bodies, murder these are the ingredients of Britain's current black magic scare. Rev. Percy Gray, 38-year- old vicar of St. Crispin's An- glican Church in South Loii- don, disclosed Wednesday the latest chapter in the scandal, the story of a child's body taken from its coffin in Nun- head Cemetery. "The body may have been the subject of a black magic he said. "A lot of this evil has been taking place Space Women By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) Five women who lived twi weeks on the bottom of the sea Killer's Hand Hurt LOS ANGELES (AP) Linda Kasabian testified here that a woman defendant at the Sharon Tate murder trial com plained after the killings tha her hand said tha when she stabbed there were bones in the way and shi couldn't get the knife through.' Mrs. Kasabian said the com ment came from P a t r i c i (Katie) Krenwinkel, 22, whom she identified earlier as the woman she saw chasing victim Abigail Folger across the lawn at actress Sharon Tate's home Q. Did Katie say anythini about one of girls in the house' A. Yes, she said one of the girls was crying for her mothe and for God. Mrs. Kasabian was askec whether the other two persons who she said went on the mis sion to Miss Tate's house sail anything as they drove away from the scene. "Yes they did. They com plained about their heads. The> said that people were puffin their hair. Sadie (Susan Atkins said that when she was strug gling with a big man he hit her head."

Lethbridge 5.70 9.00 have increased the odds that lipstick and powderpuffs one day will be standard equipment aboard United States space- ships. But space agency officials caution women's liberation groups not to get their hopes too high, because it will be eigM to nine years before a female flies in a U.S. spacecraft. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration plans late in this decade to have space stations orbiting the earth with as many as 50 persons aboard. That's when women will play a role. But they must be quali- fied in a medical or scientific field. The question of women in space came up in Washington Monday when five female scien- tists and technicians received awards as the first woman team to live and work underwater. 17 TEAMS INVOLVED Their undersea stay from July 6 to July 20 was part of a pro- gram called Tektite II in which 17 teams, 16 of them men, are taking turns at long submersion in warm water of Great Lama- shure Bay in the Virgin Islands. Tiiey lived in a dwelb'ng sub- merged 50 feet and made fre- quent trips outside in diving gear to explore marine life. Project manager for the fem- ale team was Richard Sprince of NASA. Sprince said "We've got to start looking to that when asked whether NASA would consider bringing women into the astronaut program. He said the women worked as efficiently as men on Tektite II. A small group of American women have argued for distaff astronauts since the Russians sent the world's only space- woman, Valentina Tereshkova, into orbit for three days in 1963. Many U.S. space observers note, however, that the space- ship used then was totally auto- matic and say the Soviet Union probably sent Valentina up more for propaganda than tech- nical gain. THREE PUSH HARDEST Most determined of the U.S. women have been Jerrie Cobb and Jacqueline Cochrane, two pilots with thousands of hours [lying time, and Jane Hart, also a pilot, wife of Senator Philip A- Hart (Dem.- Mich.) and mother of eight children. Miss Cobb applied for astro- naut training, but was rejected. Up to now, NASA's position has been that it's not that women can't learn to fly in space, but that space is still a pioneering venture for which man is more suited. A woman, officials say, can always use her perogative to change her mind and get mar- ried after NASA has invested several hundred thousand dol- lars and a lot of time in her training. Dr. Charles A. Berry, chief astronaut physician, says it would be nice to have women along on extended flights such as two-year missions to Mars. But, he cautions: "They've got to be able to do useful work and contribute to the mission, and you certainly can't have just one woman among a lot of men." Student Loans OTTAWA total- ling were granted to students from July 1, 1969, to June 30, 1970, the fi- nance department reports. Loans of to stu- dents were authorized in the same period the previous year. DOCTOR'S TIP Hungarian hospital doctors are underpaid and take tips to boost their salaries, a Hungar- ian trade union paper disclosed. since the cemetery was closed in January last. year. "After prayers had been said, the body was rc-intcrred and it was then that I felt it necessarry to find some prot- ection for the dead." The vicar said he plans a society for the protection of the dead. This is only the latest of a series of tragedies bound up with the cult of black magic. Michael Harrington, 35- year-old bachelor, was re- ported to have hanged himself in his room because he was convinced a girl had put a curse on him. Witnesses at a coroner's inquest testified that a girl had led him into the world of black magic, talked of killing three men with a curse and claimed she could put a similar curse on Har- rington. In May, Joseph Baxter, 19, was jailed on a charge of manslaughter in the death of the grandson of the first Earl of Jelh'coe. Police found a blood-stained letter beginning "Hail Satan" and ending with the Lord's Prayer written backwards. Canon John Pearce-Higgms, vice-provost of Southwark Ca- thedral, said: "This is an evil cult which is growing and growing. It is high time it was stamped out. The Harrington case is a typical example of what can happen." Vicar Gray said that since January scores of graves have been violated, the chapel pillaged, the war memorial stripped and crosses turned upside down at Nunhead Cem- etery. Gwilym Roberts, a member of the House of Commons, raised the question of black magic in Parliament earlier this year. He planned to intro- duce a bill against the cult but lost his Commons seat in the June IS election.
