(AP) — The 10-year-old daughter of a General Motors Corp. executive, abducted at knife-point from her bedroom Sundays was back home unharmed today. Police Detective Lt. Ed Ostin said the abducter entered the unidentified executive's $50,000 home in this Detroit suburb and forced the child to leave with him in his car. She was released without injury about 90 minutes later on a rural northwest Oakland County road in Davisburg. Ostin said the intruder may have planned to hold the girl for ransom. But he added, "At this point, there's no way of telling what the motive was." The family told police that it could think of no reason for the abduction. The names of the girl and her parents were withheld at the family's request, Qstin said. —Shop in Hope. NEW YORK ZAP) - "I have no intention of aging gracefully," Jacqueline Susann wrote in 1962. "I will go out kicking, screaming, fighting the battle of eternal youth." At the time, Miss Susann, in the midst of a career as a stage and television actress, already knew she had cancer. But she went on to make a fortune with her lusty novels, "Valley of the Dolls," "The Love Machine" and "Once is Not Enough." "Valley of the Dolls" sold 17 million copies and won her a place in the Guiness Book of Records. Saturday night, at 53, Jacqueline Susann died at Doctors Hospital, where she had been a patient for seven weeks. Until recently, only her husband of 30 years, television- movie producer Irving Mansfield, and two close women friends knew of her illness, or that the "pneumonia" and other ailments she had suffered in recent years were a recurrence of cancer. Even her son, Guy, and her mother, Mrs. Rose Susann of Philadelphia, were unaware of the seriousness of her illness. Miss Susann's long-lime publicist, Esther Margolis, said on Sunday that the authoress had a partial mastectomy (breast surgery) on Christmas Day, 1962, and the disease was in remission for many years. Miss Susann saw "Vall«y of the Dolls" and "The Love Machine" made into movies that also became "bestsellers," with the film version of "Once is Not Enough" scheduled for release next spring. She came to New York from her native Philadelphia an aspiring actress. She appeared in 21 plays, including "Banjo Eyes," "Jackpot" and the road companies of "The Animal Kingdom" and "Watch on the Rhine" before turning to television as a dramatic actress, game show panelist and mistress of ceremonies on interview programs. But "Valley of the Dolls," "Love Machine" and "Once Is Not Enough" made her the first novelist in history to have three consecutive No. 1 bestsellers. Mansfield said his wife last spoke to him three days ago, when she came out of a coma, saw him beside her and said, "Irving let's get the hell out of here!" Fire damages school at P,B. PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) •Fire of undetermined origin extensively damaged offices and some classrooms at the Southeast Junior High School early today and forced cancelation of classes. Dr. Roy Scoggins, superintendent of Pine Bluff schools, said it was hoped that classes could resume Tuesday. Scoggins said no estimate of monetary damage was available. The Pine Bluff Fire Department received an alarm about 5:20 a.m. and dispatched four trucks to the scene. Brennan noted for simplicity OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Walter Brennan played many different personality types over a half century, but he was known for brevity and simplicity in his own life. Brennan, who died at 80 on Saturday after a long battle with emphysema, was noted for playing the grizzled sidekick to the big stars of Westerns early in his career. He later gained ' national fame as the wise and wisecracking grandfather, Amos McCoy, in television's "The Real McCoys." Brennan's first Oscar was awarded for his 1936 performance in "Come and Get It," in which he played a lumberjack who ages from 25 to 75. Two years later, he won an Oscar for portraying an 84- year-old man in "Kentucky." In 1941, Brennan won again for his role as Judge Roy Bean in "The Westerner," starring Gary Cooper. The three Oscars were for best supporting actor. The white-haired veteran appeared in hundreds of films dating back to 1923 and starred in four.television series before retiring two years ago to his 11- acre grapefruit ranch in Moorpark, about 35 miles north of Los Angeles. In the last year, he was in and out of St. John's Hospital here for treatment of emphysema. His wife of 54 years, Ruth, and three children were with him when he died. Among his last acting roles were appearances in two successful movies written for television, "The Over-the-Hill Gang" and "Return of the Over-the-Hill Gang." Obituaries HOY R. DAKL1NG Hoy R.

(AP) — Former President Richard M. Nixon, ailing with phlebitis, checks into a bright, new hospital wing today. Preserving the same secrecy which surrounded him in the White House, Nixon and his aides declined to reveal his expected check-in time in advance. A hospital spokeswoman and nurses said the staff had no idea when he would arrive. According to the hospital schedule, Nixon was to go directly to his room after check-in. There, hospital personnel will take blood samples and complete other diagnostic procedures. Hospital spokesmen said it was likely, considering Nixon's symptoms, that he would undergo intravenous treatment with anticoagulant drugs. Such treatment thins the blood and aids in keeping the blood clot in the patient's leg from flaking off and producing smaller clots which might move to other parts of the body. During such treatment, the patient must remain immobile because any physical injury could bring on profuse bleeding. A bloc of eight private rooms at Long Beach Memorial Hospital Medical Center was cleared of patients on Sunday in readiness for Nixon's arrival. All Around Town .By The Star Staff.
