Page 1«A LOS ANGELES -AP) - A killer dubbed the “Night Stalker” who terrorizes suburban homes at night has been linked to 14 murders from I ais Angeles to San Francisco, but officials fear the search for the man may have been hampered by the release of too much information. Dental records that may be those of the gap-toothed killer have been sent to more than 3.000 dentists and a reward has grown to $35,000. Police would not comment Saturday on reports that the killer scrawled messages on the walls of victims’ homes. "We have definitely tied 14 murders to this individual and possibly as many as 33 individual cases in L A. County and the case in San Francisco.” Los Angeles County Sheriff Sherman Block said at a hastily called news conference late Friday. Previously, police had blamed the attacker for seven murders and 27 attacks, including rapes, beatings and kidnappings, most in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valley areas of Southern California. The first assault was reported Feb. 8 and the first slaying March 17. Block criticized San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein for telling reporters that last weekend s murder of San Francisco resident Peter Pan, 66. and the attempted murder of his wife Barbara, 64. had been linked to the “Night Stalker” through ballistics tests. Ms. Feinstein revealed the results of ballistics tests Friday as she announced that she was adding $10,000 to a reward fund for information leading to the capture of the attacker. The fund now stands at $35,010. She declined to elaborate on the caliber of the murder gun or any See STALKER, Page IGA Long distance choice must be made By SUSAN HAIRE Managing Editor Area residents have about a week to decide which long distance carrier w til handle their long distance calls If no decision is made in that time, residents will be assigned a carrier Andrew Watson, vice president of Texas National Communications in New Braunfels, warned residents that they should make the decision on which carrier to use “lf they don’t, Southwestern Bell will make that decision for them.” He added that a list of local long distance carriers should have accompanied their last month’s telephone bill, along with the rn* formation of the need to choose a long distance carrier. “I woud suggest,” he said, "that area residents call the companies on the list and inquire into their service and charges. “Then they need to decide which service best fits their needs and send in the form provided bv Bell in the bill.”InsideToday's Weather Another sunny and hot day is forecast for today and Saturday with temperatures expected to reach the upper-90s or IOO Temperatures should drop to the nod 70s overnight.

That means any discounts you obtain through your long distance    carrier,    will    be negated. You will pay the Bell long distance rate. Don’t call 1-plus if you want those discounts,” he said. He pointed out, however, that 1-plus dialing could be used outside the lata without incurring the additional charges, but added that 90 percent of the phone calls an average person makes will be inside the lata. According to Watson, all the changes in the phone system is part of the court-ordered divestiture. Rare breed Cathy Teufel exercises a 2-year-old Peruvian colt.
