Barbara Identifies Kidnaper MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - U.S. Atty. William Meadows says Barbara Jane Mackle has identified Gary Steven Krist and Ruth Eisimann-Schier as the couple who buried her alive in North Georgia after she was kidnaped. Meadows' disclosure came Monday during a preliminary hearing at which federal extortion charges were added to the kidnaping counts against Krist and Miss Eisemann-Schier. Krist, who was captured Sunday on swampy Hog Island off the Florida Gulf Coast, replied "Yes" twice during the hearing when asked if he understood the new charges and his rights. Miss Eisemann-Schier, described as a 5-foot-3, 26-year-old sometimes blonde of athletic build, is being sought. There was no explanation of how or when Miss Mackle's identification was made. The hearing in a heavily guarded room at the Dade County jail in Miami was continued until Jan. 10 to give Krist and an attorney who is temporarily representing him time to study the charges. Miss Mackle, a 20-year-old Emory University coed and daughter of a wealthy Coral Gables land developer, was kid­ naped from an Atlanta motel last Tuesday. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents found her late Friday, buried in a coffin- like box in a shallow pit 20 miles from Atlanta. Baps On Coffin FBI agents said Miss Mackle led them to the pit by using her knuckles to rap on the lid of the box. The kidnapers had telephoned her general location to the FBI after her father paid a $500,000 ransom. Krist, a Marine researcher, and Miss Eisemann-Schier, a student, worked together at the University of Miami's Institute of Marine Science. Officers have discounted reports that a third person was involved in the kidnaping. In Redwood City, Calif., Krist's estranged wife—Carmen Simon Krist—told newsmen her husband "wants to be remembered—to make an impact on the world he lives in." Mrs. Krist 22, said she left Florida two weeks ago and went to her parents' home in Red- ACCUSED KIDNAPER AT FORT MYERS, FLA.—Handcuffed and guarded closely, Gary Steven Krist is pictured at Fort Myers, Fla., when he left hospital there.

Sahara Desolation It looked like a most inhospitable place, a scene of desolation more complete than any Sahara. As Anders handled the camera for the 12-minute telecast from an altitude of about 150 miles, he described the sur-| face as "whitish-gray, like dirty beach sand with lots of footprints in it." Neming unnamed craters after astronauts, including themselves, Anders turned lunar tour guide with such description as: "We're passing over crater Borman right now. Lovell's right next to it and Anders right next to it." The television was beamed after Apollo 8 a tiny speck in limitless space, whirled through its second of 10 planned orbits of the moon. Each pass takes about two hours. The spacecraft was injected initially into an orbit ranging from 69 to 193 miles above the surface. The astronauts are to shoot themselves out of orbit at 1:0^ p.m. Wednesday for the 58-hour return to earth. The momentous orbit insertion climaxed a 69 hour journey that started Saturday at Cape Kennedy in which the astronauts, like three wise men of the f-ast, guided themselves toward a bright object in the heavens. Although Borman, Lovell and Anders are more than a quarter million miles from home, they'll l>.!.ow it's Christmas. Mission control plans to pipe Christmas cai-ols and a recorded church service to them over the radio didn't love me. He said he wanted a separation." "I still love him," she said, "and I don't believe in divorce. "I don't know the woman they say was involved in this thing with him. It comes as a great shock to me. I think they were together the first time on a two- weeks cruise a few months back." The cruise in September was a Marine institute trip to Bermuda where Krist, then working under the assumed name George Deacon, drove Miss Eisemann-Schier around on a motor scooter. Miss Eisemann-Schier, a native of Honduras with a degree in pharmacology from the University of Mexico, became a poor student after the Bermuda trip, her former professors at the institute said. May Drop Charges Meadows said federal kidnap­ ing charges against the pair may have to be dropped later because it appears Miss Mackle was not transported across a state line "A HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR ALL."

A new Pacific storm lashed the northwest with gales and soaking rains along the coast and flung heavy snows inland from the Cascades and Sierras to the northern Rockies. Lakeview, in south-central Oregon, shoveled through 16 inches of snow. Biting gales sweeping the eastern Great Lakes scattered flurries into the Appalachians and dumped heavy snow into western New York and adjacent lake areas. Travelers warnings were issued for eight New York counties pelted by snow and winds up to 50 miles an hour. Six inches of snow fell atop a coating of ice in sections east of Buffalo to add an extra hazard for motorists winding up Christmas shopping and those getting an early start on holiday travel. A new blast of Arctic air rolled across the plains and Midwest, driving temperatures below zero in a region plastered by up to 2 feet of snow Sunday and Monday. Highway crews plowed through 10-and 12-foot drifts in portions of Kansas-, Nebraska, Iowa, the eastern Dakotas and Minnesota. Blowing and drifting snow continued to frustrate clearing operations in parts of southwestern Minnesota, and some highways were open only to one- 1 way traffic. The snow ranged] up to 26 inches in depth at Morris, Minn., and 25 inches at Duluth. Before churning into the northeast, the weekend storm heaped 12 to 16 inches of snow across northern Michigan. All roads except U.S. 41 were closed in the state's Upper Peninsula for a time Monday. As the latest in a series of City Treasurer Files Petitions For Reelection City Treasurer Mary Lou Eubanks, 206 south Fourth street, today became a candidate for reelection. She filed her petitions at city hall this morning. Mrs. Eubanks is completing Li.r second four- year elective term a city treasurer. She served as treasurer before that, by appointment. Burglars Loot Christmas Gifts Christmas thieves are on the loose. Barbara Smith, 517 south 24th street, Monday told police burglars entered her home and stole Christmas presents sometime after 2 p.m. Monday. Mrs. Smith said the burglars entered the house through a rear window. She said the Christmas tree was torn down and drawers in the house were ransacked. Missing were presents under the Christmas tree including one key chain, two western string ties, two western bow ties and several pieces of children's jewelry. Bloodmobiie In Mr. V. Next Week; Need Is Great The Red Cross today asked college students, at home for the holidays, to become donors when the Bloodmobiie comes to Mt. Vernon the last two days of this year. The unit will be at the Central church of Christ. Donor hours will be from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. Monday, January 30 and from 9:00 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, January 31. Barbara Strattan, executive secretary of the local Red Cross chapter, said that blood is in low supply at hospitals during the Christmas season, a time when many injuries from accidents are forecast. "We realize that the pre-New Year's period seems an awkward time for the Bloodmobiie to come but the need is great," she said. Walk-in donors will be welcomed both days. 4 MT. V.
