Official MEXICO CITY (UP) — Police questioned seven Indians today as "first rate suspects" in the shotgun murder of a U. S. State Department official who could not give bandits the money they demanded because he carried only travelers checks. The Indians were among 240 persons rounded up by Mexican army troops, vigilantes and police Sunday in the wake of the highway robbery slaying of Dr. Ralph B. Swain, 40, of Benton, 111., a Point Four official attached to the U. S. embassy in Nicaragua. Family Sees Shooting Swain was killed by a shotgun blast in the chest Saturday before the eyes of his horrified wife, Su- zuanne, and their sons Tommi, 12, and Ralph, 10. They were stopped by four bandits as they drove through a wild mountainous section 130 miles southwest of Mexico City. Mrs. Swain said the masked gunmen appeared suddenly, two on either side of the road, and forced the car to stop. One of them stepped up and demanded 2,000 pesos, about $250. Swain tried to explain that he had no cash and carried only travelers checks. When Swain reached into an inside pocket to get the travelers checks, Mrs. Swain told police, the jittery bandit fired the shotgun. merger issue, a subject of argu-jof the Indian custodial camp ment for many vears.

(UP) — The Macon County grand jury lvened today for a session expected to touch on charges of mistreatment of county home and hospital patients. State's Attorney Kenneth Evans declined to say flatly whether he would ask the grand jury to make a complete probe of conditions. However, it was noted that one of the cases to be presented to the Jury was that of Herschel Jerden, a former orderly at the hospital who is charged with assaulting patients. Brutality Uncovered Evans said in a special report to the County Board of Supervisors last month there were instances of brutality, neglect and financial irregularities at the home. He said some aged patients who were dying were left in a separate room at the home, without any notification of relatives about their condition. Evans said there were reports of attendants throwing scalding or ice water on patients to make them hurry through baths, or to follow other instructions.
