Brooklyn Pair Jailed As Thieves in Probe Of Slaying at LeRoy BATAVIA, May 8 Two Brooklyn men, suspects in Ihe robbery-slaying of Anthony De Francisco, also known ; Frank, of LeRoy last Sunday, will spend the next 30 days in Genesee County Jail while investigation into the slaying is continued. City Judge J. Vincent Serve Imposed the jail terms on Isi dore Oback, 39, and Max Desat-nick, 35, on their pleas of guilty to charges of petty larceny during a special session of City Court late this afternoon. Specifically, the larceny count involves the theft of one box of 10 spark plugs from Phil and Jim's Service Station at 582 E. Main St. in Batavia at about 4:40 p.m. last Saturday. Oback actually took the plugs while Desatnick acted as "lookout" and engaged the station proprietor in conversation to divert his attention, according to State Trooper Leon Taggart of the BCI. Nothing New Meanwhile, state police and the Genesee County Sheriff's Department said there is nothing new in the investigation in the slaying. Oback and Desatnick have steadfastly denied any knowledge of the killing and have said they were not in the Le Roy area at the time of the slaying. The slaying is believed to have occurred be tween 9:30 and 11 a.m. last Sunday. According to Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy Harry W. Mc- fariana, tne room cictk ai Rund's Hotel, 48 South Ave., Rochester told him last night that two men registered there as "Oback" and "Desatnick" at 11 o'clock last Sunday night.

Sheriff Frank L. Gavel said at least two witnesses have placed the pair in Le Roy at about 11 a.m. Sunday.

Stephens and Sheriff Gavel said Oback had admitted having been engaged in the "business" of stealing spark plugs for the past seven years. The men said this was Desatnick's first trip, the latter having been released from Green Haven Prison only 18 days ago after serving two years on an extortion charge. Sheriff Gavel said authorities are checking alleged discrepancies in the times given by the men for their Saturday activities and the times given by witnesses who allegedly saw them in the area.

Disc Jockey Indicted as Inciter Of Rock-Roll Riot BOSTON, May 8 (TP) New York disc jockey Alan Freed was indicted by a Suffolk County grand jury today on charges of inciting the unlawful destruction of property during a riot touched off at Frced's rock 'n' roll show Saturday night. Dist. Atty. Garrett Byrne said that unless Freed surrenders by next Monday he will order the radio personality arrested and extradited here for trial. Byrne said further evidence will be presented to the grand jury and indictments against others may be obtained. The indictment against Freed was based on the so called "anti anarchy" statute. It concerned the violent aftermath of Freed's show at Boston Arena attended by more than 6,000 young peo ple. Fifteen persons, including six women, were robbed or assaulted by roving gangs of teen-agers. One, a Navy sailor, was stabbed. The penalty upon conviction is up to three years in state prison or 2Vz years imprisonment and up to $1,000 fine. The trouble led Mayor John B. Hynes to ban future rock 'n' roll shows in public auditoriums. Such shows were subsequently banned in New Haven and New Britain, Conn., and Newark, N.J Freed, who has been in New York since the Boston show, de nied there was any trouble in or around the arena. In New York, Frced's attor ney, M. Warren Troob, said he was shocked by the grand jury action. Troob declined to disclose Freed's whereabouts and declared he was "at a loss to say what we will do in answer to the arrest order. An incident of this type has never happened before. It is as shocking to us as it is to anyone else. We'll decide what to do after we learn more about the Boston indictment in a more otticial manner."

Johnson, 38, piloted a Locl'heed F104A Star- fighter up at a 45-degree angle above the Southern California desert town of Mojave to the new mark yesterday. He topped by more than two miles the height of 80,190 feet 15.19 miles claimed for a French experimental Trident Isere-06 at Istres, France, last Friday. The French flight had exceeded the mark of 76,928 feet, or 14.57 miles, reached last April 16 by a U.S. Navy Grum man F11F-1F flown by Lt. Cmdr. George C. Watkins. How did the stratospheric climb feel?

At a news conference, John son described the flight: His plane, powered by a Gen eral Electric J79 engine, left Palmdale with a full load of fuel almost 5,000 pounds of a mixture made mostly of light kerosene. "I flew a pattern to get the fuel down to where I wanted it," Johnson related. He flew to Santa Barbara at 35,000 feet, made a climbing turn to 40,000 and went into his steep climb over Mojave giving the engine full power. 45-Degree Angle Just before heading into the climb at an angle of approxi mately 45 degrees he was going a little over twice the speed of sound. He experienced 2.7 G's nearly three times the pull of gravity when he pulled upward. He had no trouble controlling the plane. At the top of his climb he was going 622 mph.

NC Democrat and Cr Rochester, N. Y., Fri., May 9, 1953 Sack Look Good For Our Morals, Graham Asserts SAN FRANCISCO, May 8 (VP) Evangelist Billy Grahim said tonight: "I like the sack look. It has taken the sex out of dress. It's healthy for the morals of the country." Addressing an audience of 18,000 in the 16.500-seat Cow Palace, he departed from his sermon to comment on the stoning of Vice President Nixon in Lima, Peru. "You shouldn't blame the people of South America as a whole for it," he said. "There is a small, well-organized minority who will do this sort of thing. Most people in South American are pro -(North) American. I found that out from my travels around South America. Mr. Nixon conducted himself with courage and honor and we North Americans should be proud of it." Graham said the incident shows that "in spite of our giveaway programs we can't buy friends and it might wake our nation up to its responsibilities in South America." He held up the Biblical! strong man Samson as an early J example of juvenile delin-i quency. His topic was "God's Delinquents." "He had a parental problem, and a romantic problem," Graham said. "But he sinned. and sin blinded Samson and he ended up grinding a mill an bound by his blindness to his son. Then God forgave Samson and restored his strength. He can forgive you and restore you to your proper place in life." Graham said there is more crime in America today, with more of it committed by young people. The trouble is partly parents who are unprepared for parenthood, Graham said, and too much leisure time among children, who need to have more to do. Most young people are more familiar with Jayne Mansfield's measurements than they are with the First Command ment, he asserted. "There is nothing wrong with sex in its proper perspective," he said. "The Bible adopts no tiptoe, hush-hush attitude tow ards sex."
