'Jack The Ripper Theory Draws Palace Denial By DON FORBES LONDON (AP) Buck- ingham Talace officials came to the defence Wednesday of lie Duke of Clarence, great uncle of Queen Elizabeth, denying sto- ries that lie might have been Jack the Ripper, ghoulish mur- derer of the last century. The duke could not have killed at least two of the Ripper victims because he was away from London at the lime, the officials said alter delving through fife palace arcliives. Thomas StoweU, eminent sur- geon who started the furor when he said he knew tlie identity of the Ripper, declined once more to name the nobleman he says was the murderer. But UM 88-year-old doctor said rnithinR likely tu end speculation that Uie killer, known lo bave slain five London prostitutes and mutilated their bodies, was in fact Edward, Duke ot Clar- ence. StoweU refused to acquit tlie duke, although Buckingham Palace las rummaged through court circulars dating to 188S, when Uie Ripper was on the loose, and found evidence, re- leased discreetly through infor- mal sources, that tlie duke was out of London.

Palace statemenU thai the duke was shooting in Scotland find celebrating his fathar's birthday at a royal country resi- dence, when two of the murders occurred, have helped cast more fog over the Ripper's identity. Despite the official palace view that the slory is "too ab- surd and ridiculous for com- ment, there is a growing body of expert crimiiioJogists who be- lieve (he duke may have been the Ripper. StoweU, vlio has spent 50 years collecting evidence about the Hipper, aroused the contro- versy with an article in The Cri- minologist, claiming the killer was a yoimg man of noble blood and heir lo a title. London Sunday Times crime writer Magnus Linklater delved into Stowells facts and descrip- tion of the high-born suspect and found they tallied with the ideas nf another expert, NAMES DUKE He was Donald McC'ormick, who has just republished a book on the Ripper's gruesome car- eer.

Officially, tlie duke died o! pneumonia in 1892, but some historians expressed belief he was a homosexual who died crippled by syphilis in a mental hospital.
