UPI News Briefs Honeymoon Starts On A False Note L'ANSE, Mich. (UPI) John Girardi's brother gave Girardi a wedding sendoff he is not likely to forget. Girardi, 22, and his bride, Deborah, were married Saturday and set off on a honeymoon in Michigan's upper peninsula. But on Monday, Baraga County sheriff's deputies forced Girardi's car to the side of the road and brusquely ordered Girardi to get out of the car. One deputy frisked Girardi while the second searched the car, looking for a gun. Instead, the officers found wedding bells and a "Just Married" sign in the NEW OFFICERS of the Galveston Noon Optimist Club were installed at the home of Gerald Dyer.

(Photo by William K. Macdonald) Brother Denies Ruby Met Oswald WASHINGTON (UPI) Jack Ruby never met Lee Harvey Oswald before gunning him down in front of television cameras two days after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Ruby's brother testified Tuesday. Earl Ruby, 63, Jack's younger brother, told the House Assassinations Committee he does not believe Jack was involved in any conspiracy. "I asked him point-blank if he had known Oswald before," Earl said of his brother. '"Absolutely not. by THOMAS JOSEPH ACROSS 1 "Beau - " 6 Particle; jot 10 Irish partisan 11 Present 12 Require 13 Arabian coastal region 14 Of the stars 16 Hot time in Paris 17 Shooting match 18 Trumpet's relative 20 Drooping 22 Greek letter 23 Miss Home 24 Hotbed 28 Held court 31 Kind of club 32 Rouse oneself 35 Large vase 36 Brink of an event 37 Corrupted 40 Chalcedony 42 Oceanic 43 Brink 44 A Fagin trainee 45 Numerical suffix 46 Horseman DOWN 1 Non-Jew 2 Begin 3 Rock formation 4 Follow 5 Interweave 6 Pronoun 7 Machismo adherents 8 Enraged 9 Precept 10 Jovial Yesterday's Answer 15 Decay 19 Resounded 21 Just over 25 Baffling 26 More tranquil 27 Offer 29 Succor 3G Quiver 32 Assail 33 Duck 34 Twilled fabric 38 Indonesian island 39 Parched 41 Hideaway What? Are you nuts?' were his words." Asked if Jack would have lold him of any involvement, Earl replied: "Well, he knew he was going to die when he had cancer. If he had known anything, he would have told me." Earl, a stocky man with graying hair, testified in a nervous husky voice before the committee investigating the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination of Kennedy. He was asked to comment on a BBC interview in which Jack said he had "a secret" and "no one will ever learn the true facts" about why he shot Oswald. "I'm the only person who knows the truth," Ruby said in the interview, which was shown on a screen set up in the House caucus room. Alan Adelson, a Detroit attorney who said he know Jack better than anyone in the United States, broke in then and said Oswald's murderer had become "paranoic." "He got the feeling all Jews were being taken to Dallas to be disposed of in his paranoic state," Adelson said. Earl testified that his brother was a very sensitive man, quick to take impulsive action. He said he once asked his brother why he shot Oswald. Jack was quoted as saying he was moved to kill Oswald "when I saw him come through the door with that smirk on his face, looking so happy he killed the president." Earl said his brother frequently practiced with his revolver and may not have intended to kill Oswald because he aimed at his stomach rather than at his chest or head. He said he had loaned his brother a total of $15,000 over the years and never got a penny back. Yet, he said, he remained on friendly terms with his brother. Earl said he did not know of Ruby's alleged underworld friends but recalled one of his brother's good friends was Lewis McWillie, described as a Las Vegas, Nev., gambler. He said Jack visited McWillie in Cuba in 1959 on a vacation-business trip. HOUSTON (UPI) — A jury has acquitted a 50- year-old woman of murder in the shooting death of her husband, who she testified had abused her for 30 years. Sadie Blundell admitted shooting Robert Blundell, but said she did so because he was beating her following a motel confrontation with his 19-year-old girlfriend. The jury decided she acted in self-defense. Mrs. Blundell said her husband repeatedly beat her, went out with other women and then rededicated their marital vows: "I thought he'd straighten up. I guess I loved him." HOUSTON (UPI) — A woman blinded by a gunshot wound four years ago has been convicted of voluntary manslaughter and sentenced to 10 years in prison in a man's shooting death. Gladys Oscar was convicted and sentenced in the shooting of Melvin Eddie Hafford despite defense demonstrations to remind the jury she could not see to aim a gun. Prosecutors said the defendant confessed to the shooting, but she repudiated that statement in testimony saying another woman paid her $500 to take the blame. "She said to just tell the police Eddie tried to rape me," she testified. "She said my being blind would get me out of jail and we'd go to Cleveland, Ohio." JAKARTA, Indonesia (UPI) — Police in West Java are interrogating 15 men they say confessed to stealing bodies from a cemetery and sold them. Authorities said that the bodies, stolen in the city of Cianjur, were sold for up to $36,000 in Jakarta but they did not say who purchased them, the newspaper Sinar Harapan paper reported. The men did not say what the bodies were used for. MANILA, Philippines (UPI) — Guerrillas littered a highway with nails then ambushed and killed two policemen when they stopped to fix a flat tire, the official Philippine News Agency said Tuesday. A senior police officer and a junior officer were killed in the ambush in Davao Del Norte Province of Mindanao Island 500 miles from Manila. Four other officers were wounded. Police said the Communist New Peoples Army was responsible for the ambush Monday afternoon. MOSCOW (UPI) — Soviet archeologists have discovered a Stone Age dwelling made of mammoth bones in a village south of the Ukrainian capita of Kiev, Tass news agency reported Tuesday. Tass said the primitive house was the fourth of its kind found in the region, following similar discoveries between 1966 and 1972. Tass said a skillfully worked reindeer horn found during the excavation helped archeologists to date construction of the bone home to about 12,000 years ago. The agency said the reindeer horn was used as a sceptre by tribal leaders of the ancient hunters and said specialists described it as a "highly valuable archeological find." MOSCOW (UPI) — Soviet authorities have completed preparations for the trial of Robert Nazaryan, head of the Armenian branch of the dissident Helsinki human rights monitoring group. Dissident sources told Western correspondents that they expected Nazaryan, who has been in jail in Yerevan, Armenia since his arrest last December, would go on trial shortly on unspecified charges of anti-Soviet activities. The sources said Nazaryan relayed the news to his family that the investigation and pre-trial action had been completed. Nazaryan told his wife, mother and sister that he had rejected efforts by the secret police to follow the example of Georgian dissident Zviad Gam- sakhourdia, who pleaded guilty and recanted earlier this year and was sentenced to a relatively mild three years in labor camp. back seat and a thoroughly confused bride in the front. The police search was prompted by a telephone call from Cindy Nelson, 20, who worked at a service station in Three Lakes where the couple had stopped minutes earlier for gas. When Ms. Nelson began to fill the tank, she found a note reading, "Help me, I'm being kidnapped. Call the police." She complied. Girardi eventually convinced police his bride was not a kidnap victim but his brother had played a practical joke. Police allowed the Girardis to continue their honeymoon. f-27 DAILY CRYPTOQUOTE - Here's how to work it: AXYDLBAAXR is LONGFELLOW One letter simply stands for another.
