(AP) - David Owens Brooks, a young father accused of murdering four of the 27 victims in Houston's mass slayings case, is due in court for pretrial hearings today. Ted Musick, Brooks' lawyer, says he will ask state District Court Judge William M. Hatten to set a sanity trial for Nov. 4 for the 19-year-old defendant, whose 7-month-old child was born after he was jailed. The jury would determine if Brooks is now sane and com- petent to help in his defense on the charges. If the jury decides he is, a trial on the first of four cases would be set. Musick said if Brooks is ordered to stand trial, he will seek a change of venue and enter a plea of temporary insanity. A ruling of insanity would preclude prosecution and Brooks could be sent to a mental hospital. Only 432 pounds of a 1,000- pound steer are cut, wrapped and sold to customers.

DETROIT (AP) - A small petroleum firm is promoting a new "super" synthetic motor oil for autos it says can last up to 10 times longer than conventional lubricating oil. Pacer Petroleum Co., of Houston, Tex., says its sales are "growing like weeds." But Detroit's Big Three auto makers say they aren't ready for an oil change. They are making tests of their own, however. And they are interested. Pacer's Sol I^vy says cars using the firm's EON E-ll synthetic oil can go 40,000 miles between oil changes. U.SM auto makers recommend conventional oil changes every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. Levy also says E-ll provides better protection for engine parts, causes less engine wear and results in better fuel economy than petroleum oils. However, E-H sells for $5 a quart, compared with less than $1 a quart for conventional oil. But Levy says in the long run it is less expensive because E-ll users buy one-tenth as many quarts over 40,000 miles of driving. Outside the auto industry, synthetic oils are not new. Germany developed them during World War II and the aircraft industry has used them for years. About a half dozen companies market such oils. Pacer is the first to offer the product nationwide for auto owners. I-evy estimated more than 250,000 cars now use the product, and the company expects $6 million in sales this year. "It's just unbelieveable the way it's taken off," he said. Pacer is advertising heavily in Detroit, a market which can make or break a new auto product. Ads plug E-ll as the oil used in Houston police cars and boast the oil "never needs to be changed." The auto makers, while not rejecting Pacer's claims outright, express skepticism about the "super oil." They say synthetic motor oil needs more testing before the firms can either reject or recommend Lt for use in their cars.

By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer Higher prices for everything from peanut butter to pork chops helped push up the family grocery bill again during August, according to an Associated Press marketbasket survey. The survey showed that the marketbasket has risen 11 per cent so far this year and prices are 14 per cent higher than they were 12 months ago. The AP checked the prices of 15 food and nonfood items in 13 cities on March 1, 1973 and has rechecked at the beginning of each succeeding month. The latest check, at the start of the Labor Day weekend, provided little encouragement for consumers. More than 40 per cent of the total number of items checked went up during "August. Eggs were up in every city checked —although they generally were cheaper than a year ago when $l-a-dozen eggs prompted consumers to seek other sources of protein. Sugar continued its seemingly relentless rise, increasing in 11 cities during August. Pork chops were up in eight cities, reflecting higher prices paid to farmers for their hogs. Peanut butter, which had remained fairly steady in pricen went up in six cities last month. Coffee was up in eight cities. The AP survey showed that during August the market- basket went up in every city surveyed except Dallas, Tex., where it dropped by a penny or a fraction of 1 per cent. The average increase was 4% per cent. During July, the AP mar- ketbasket rose in all 13 cities. On the average, the bill for the marketbasket was 23 per cent higher than it was on March 1,1973; 14 per cent higher than it was on Sept. 1, 1973; and 11 per cent higher than it was on Jan. 1, 1974. The Agriculture Department says that food prices will continue to rise during the rest of 1974, but at a slower rate than previously. The department recently upped its estimate of how much the over-all 1974,increase would be, boosting it from 12 to 15 per cent because of the recent drought that damaged the corn crop and is expected to mean higher prices for meat, milk and poultry. The sugar increases have been the largest in the AP mar- ketbasket. Since last Septem- bern the price of a five-pound sack of granulated sugar has risen an average of 143 per cent, jumping from 74 cents to $1.80. The increases ranged from 129 per cent in Boston, where the price went from 79 cents to $1.81, to 202 per cent in Atlanta, where it rose from 64 cenis to $1.93 over the 12-month period. During August, the price of sugar was up in 11 cities, rising an average of 6 per cent, and unchanged in one city. In the 13th city, sugar was unavailable on one of the check dates. Grade-A medium white eggs went up in all 13 cities during August, rising an average 12 per cent. But in every city except Albuquerque, N.M., they were lower than they were last September, down 19 per cent. The AP survey covered Albuquerque, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Providence, Salt Lake City and Seattle. The items on the checklist were: chopped chuck, center cut pork chops, frozen orange juice, coffee, paper towels, detergent, fabric softener, butter, eggs, peanut butter, tomato sauce, chocolate chip cookies, milk, all-beef frankfurters and granulated sugar. —Obey all traffic laws.
