Krist Indicted For Kidnaping Of Barbara Mackle DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — Gary Steven Krist was indicted Monday on a charge of kidnaping for ransom 20-year-old Barbara Jane Mackle—a charge that could draw a penalty of life imprisonment or death. Announcing this today, DeKalb County Dist. Atty. Richard Bell said his office would try the case and would move immediately to have Krist brought here from Miami. Krist, 23, an escaped convict, has been in Miami since he was captured on alligator-infested Hog Island in Florida Dec. 22— five days after Miss Mackle was kidnaped from a motel here, held for $500,000 ransom and buried alive in a coffin-like box. She was rescued, alive and well, after 80 hours under ground. Federal authorities brought extortion charges against Krist but said he would not be prosecuted on a federal kidnap count because the Emory University student was not taken out of the state of Georgia during her ordeal. Bell said federal authorities "have cooperated with me in my decision to prosecute on behalf of the state of Georgia." Miss Mackle appeared before the DeKalb County grand Jury Monday along with her mother and her father, Robert Mackle, multimillionaire friend of President-elect Nixon. The grand jury also indicted Ruth Eisemann Schier, a 26- year-old blonde now on the FBI's most wanted list, on a kidnaping charge. The FBI has identified her as an accomplice of Krist in the case. Bell said conviction on the kidnap charge would draw a penally of death or life imprisonment, depending on the jury's recommendation. WORKER CRUSHED ROGKFORD, HI.

Mary Price, Oracle Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market picked up strength in fairly active trading late Tuesday afternoon. At 1 p.m. the Dow Jones average of 30 industrials had climbed 3.54 to 926.65. It was down more than a point in early trading. Advances by individual stocks outnumbered declines by a substantial margin on the New York Stock Exchange. Brokers said it was heartening that the Dow industrials were able to hold above 920 but expressed doubt over how far tiie rally could go. Some brokers had looked for the market to interrupt its prolonged slide on the basis of good economic news, including a forecast of an increase in housing starts in 1969, goodl sales by most automakers and a report that sales kept pace with inventory accumulation in November. On the other hand, a major brokerage firm said a disturbing factor was a statement in an interview by Federal Reserve Board Governor George Mitchell that the board was willing to gamble on a minirecession and accept higher unemployment in order to bring inflation under control. At midway the New York Stock Exchange common stock index held a gain of .22 at 56.99. Several big blocks crossed! the ticker tape, including 19,000 and 20,000 shares of Youngstown Sheet, unchanged at 45%. Youngstown had advised its stockholders to turn down a tender offer by Lykes as too low. A 28,100-share block of Kayser-Roth traded at 39, off %, and a 22,500-share block of Tampa Electric traded 1 at 27%, off 4-H Federation Meeting Is Set Here Jan. 16 The regular monthly meeting of the Jefferson County 4-H Federation will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, January 16, at the Illinois Power Co. on west Broadway.

Newly appointed delegates who did not receive a notice of the meeting are urged to attend. Itefreshments will be served. Negro Groups Attack Nixon Appointments By WAI/TE RMEARS Associated Press Writer KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) —President-elect Nixon, who pledged that dissenters would be heard in the counsels of his administration, has encountered some—although apparently second-hand. Leaders of six Nego organtea- tions spent over an hour with Nixon in New York Monday and two of them asserted 1 later that his appointments are troubling the Black community. Nixon arrived early today In Key Biscayne, his Florida retreat, for a surprise visit expected to extend until Friday. He came alone, and planned to work alone on the final draft of his inaugural address. Nixon is expected to spend Friday night and! Saturday in New York, then fly to Washington next Sunday on the eve of his inauguration. After Monday's New York meeting, Matthew Wright of the Black Power Conference singled out Daniel P. Moynihan, Nixon's assistant for urban affairs, for his criticism. Wright said Moynihan is committed to "the white mind set," which emphasizes the rehabilitation of buildings instead of people in dealing with city problems. "He has added to the possibility of disorder in the streets by his being there," Wright said. He said he believes a Negro should have been Nixon's chief adviser on the cities. But he acknowledged that he had not brought up this complaint during the meeting with the President-elect. He said Nix-! on was gracious. "He talked j and we listened," Wright said 1 . Home Damaged By Blaze Here Fire yesterday caused considerable damage to the home of Eunice Mays, 1105 south 22nd street. Firemen said the floor around a floor furnace and a wall were damaged by fire. There was also heat and smoke damage to the house. Make Plans For Demonstrations To Mar Inaugural WASHINGTON (AP) - Antiwar groups who plan a "coun- ter:naugural" parade the day hefore President-elect Nixon »akes office also wants to hold a counterinayral ball. But so tar they don't have a ballroom. They proposed erection of a circus-like tent, 300 feet long and 100 feet wide, near the route of the parade, but their spokesman, David Dellinger, says the government has stalled" on granting permission for that. Dellinger, 52, head of the National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam, said the tent would also be used as a staging headquarters for protestors. He met Monday with Harry Van Cleve, an official of the Giweral Services Administration appointed to handle the demonstrations for the government Afterward, Dellinger said the protestors obtained permission to march down Pennsylvania Avenue in a 'counlerinau- guial" parade Sunday. Nixon's ina'igural parade will be Monday. Dellinger said several organi­ sations will participate in a three - day antiwar program in Washington timed to coincide with the inauguration. Among them, he said, are the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the New Party, mens Liberation Movement, the Wnmens' International League for Peace and Freedom' and some units of the Students for a Democratic Society.

White for injuries suffered in an Oct. 29, 1967 accident. Mrs. Brown seeks $10,000 for injuries suffered in an accident on south 10th street team from Wright-Potterso'n AFB at Dayton, Ohio, brought in liquid foam for pumping into the sewers. More than 1,800 persons spent the night in emergency overnight shelters in schools, an armory and a Salvation Army facility. Others of the 4,000 living in the area moved in with friends or relatives for the night Four factories closed down and sent their employes home —or to the emergency shelters. Civil Defense officials rushed cots and bedding to the emergency shelters. Supermarkets in this northern Ohio city of 60,000 population remained open to' make food available for the displaced persons. The pipeline gave way shortly before sundown Monday, touching off a series of small explosions. One man was burned. At the time, a pumping station was Working to push the oil through the pipe to Toledo. The thick, black oil poured out, at first threatening only a few hundred homes, and then endangering more than a thousand homes when it flowed from the streets into the sewer system. Witnesses said small explosions sent sewer lids flying 50 feet into the air. On some streets the oil stood six inches deep. The oil ran out of the sewers into the Ottawa River, turning it inky black. The only fire in the first hours of danger broke out at a pumping station at the city's sewage treatment plant on the banks of the river. Firemen contained the blaze, then extinguished it. The fire knocked out the city's J sewage treatment system. BIGGEST SEABORNE ASSAULT (Continued From Page One) 7th Fleet commander offshore, said: "The area has been a refuge for Communist sympathizers for the last 20 years. We know that Viet Cong and North Vietnamese units are in the area and use it as a resupply point." About a dozen Navy ships took part in the landing. In Saigon, the U.S. Command said today allied forces have seized 700 tons of enemy weapons, munitions and rice in the last 2Va weeks, seriously cramping tlie Communist command's ability to launch offensives in some areas. A spokesman said the capture of this booty by allied sweep operations around Saigon and Da Nang may be partly responsible for the prolonged lull in major ground fighting. South Vietnamese headquarters also reported that government troops sweeping the central highlands near the city of Pleiku today killed 29 enemy soldiers guarding a munitions store. It yielded four mortar tubes, 36 machine guns and 17 rifles. There were no South Vietnamese casualties. Paris Talks Change In Paris, Ambassador W. Averell Harriman made a farewell speech to the Anglo-American Press Club as he prepared to turn over his assignment *a chief U.S. spokesman at the Vietnam peace talks to Henry Cabot Lodge. Harriman reminded the American people the United States is fighting a limited war in Vietnam, with limited Objectives that can be, achieved short of total military victory.

Hatley, Cottage, Tenn., $10 on charge of disobeying traffic signal Walter Gowler, Rt. 460 East, Mt. Vemon, $10 on charge of leaving driveway without due caution; Arnie M.

Vernon, $20 on charge of improper use of registration and $20 on charge of no valid operators license; Leonard C. Crowley, Rt. 7, Mt. Vernon, $20 on charge of speed- ng er nearly two hours of questions. He asked Mrs. Molina, graying and spectacled, if she could fairly judge Sirhan in the knowledge he shot the New York senator. "Yes," she replied quietly. Questions by Deputy Dist Atty. David M. Fitts, indicated the prosecution would attack the "diminished responsibiliy" concept on grounds it would be difficult to prove a man's state, of mind nearly eight months ago. "This is not something that can be weighed and measured," he said. Fitts told Mrs. Molina there may be conflicting expert evi dence concerning Sirhan's state of mind on the night Kennedy was shot. "Would you agree there would be a reasonable doubt as to what the state of mind was, since it is a hard thing to find out?" he asked. Before the juror answered Emile Zola Berman, one of the three defense attorneys, objected on grounds the question presupposes there will be reasonable doubt." "We don't accept that," he said. Judge Herbert F. Walker sustained the defense objection. Fitts then asked Mrs. Molina about her earlier response that she had no conscientious objections to the death penalty. Should she sit on the jury and find the defendant guilty of first degree murder, he said, "Would you have the courage to' come downstairs to the jury box and say 'Sirhan, because of the murder of Sen. Kennedy, you must die in the gas chamber'?" Again she nodded yes. Sirhan, 24, reacted to the. trial's first reference to the gas chamber by cupping his hands on the counsel table and bowing his head. The jury selection, expected to take two weeks or more, began promptly Monday morning after Judge Walker rejected a defense motion to dismiss the trial jury list on grounds it was not drawn from a cross-section of the community. Three prospective jurors, two of them housewives, were dismissed on their contentions that serving on the jury would cause them hardship. To Hurt Israel Arabs Plan To Tighten Boycotts By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Arab states plan to tighten their 16-year economic boycott of Israel and foreign firms that do business with the Jewish state, a spokesman said Tuesday. But he did not announce what action would be taken. Mohammed Mahjob. commissioner general of the Arab League's Boycott Israel movement, said in Damascus, Syria, that measures "to plug the gaps in the siege" are in the offing. Se said they would be approved at a conference in Qatar Jan. 20. Currently on the Arab black list are firms that have main of branch factories in Israel; firms that hold shares in Israeli businesses; firms that render con- stractural or technical aid to Israeli industry; firms searching for natural resources in Israel; banks that do more business in Israel than in Arab states, and those that give the right to'use names, trade marks or patents to Israeli concerns. Shipping and air lines are blacklisted it they carry Jewish immigrants or military cargo to Israel. The boycott regulations also' apply against film stars and movie companies that are deemed to serve Israeli propaganda or financial interests. America's Ford Motor Co. and Coca Cola are on the black list. To' avoid a similar fate, many large firms such as Renault of France shut down their assembly plants in Israel, Mahjob said 67 firms from various countries have applied to be taken off the black list and have provided documents proving the termination Of their association with Israel. These applications will be decided at the Qatar conference, he said. In Tel Aviv, an army spokesman reported fresh border clashes between Israeli and Jordanian troops while the military leaders of both countries appeared on a British television' program Monday night. The spokesman said two Israeli soldiers were wounded in brief firefights and another was wounded when his jeep ran over a mine in the occupied west bank of the Jordan River. In separate interviews with the British Broadcasting Corp., King Hussein of Jordan welcomed Big Four moves toward a Middle East peace settlement and Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan said: "Peace cannot be imposed on anybody." Dayan reiterated the Israeli contention that the only way to get peace would be direct talks with the Arabs. He said Israel had no intention of relinquishing territories it occupied in the 1967 war, would retain the strategic town of Sharm el Shiehk at the head of Tiran strait and would not relinquish administrative control of Jerusalem. Hussein warned that Israeli attempts to retain Jerusalem would mean that "the city of peace could once again become a battlefield."

Neither side commented on the talks in compliance with a request from the Mediation Service.
