By Tim Cuprisin and Terry Anderson Of the Press-Gazette Two counts of first-degree murder were expected to be filed this afternoon against a suspect in the beating death of John Quimby and the disappearance of Mary Maciejewski, according to Brown County Sheriff Leon Pieschek. Brown County District Attorney Peter Naze left the closed-door John Doe investigation into the case at about 11 a.m. to draft a criminal complaint, Pieschek told reporters waiting outside Chief Judge William J. Duffy's chambers. Pieschek said the suspect, a man he did not identify, was in custody this morning. The suspect was questioned earlier this week in the probe. At this point, authorities do not know the whereabouts of Maciejews-ki's body, but when asked if he believed she was dead, Pieschek replied, "Oh yeah." The John Doe probe entered its third day shortly after 9 a.m. today. District Attorney Peter Naze greeted reporters as he and Lt. Marvin Gerlikovski, the county's chief investigator in the case, entered the chambers. But Naze, who was carrying a box of files, refused to acknowledge reporters' questions. When Naze left the chambers at about 11 a.m. and again refused to comment. "I may have something for you later today," he said. Sheriff Leon Pieschek was meeting with other investigators in the Quimby-Maciejewski case this morning and was unavailable for comment. Gerlikovski spent much of the morning shuttling between the courthouse and the Public Safety Building. He also declined comment, but when asked if the John Doe hearing would end today, he crossed his fingers. Duffy '8 only comment this morning was that a John Doe hearing "probably" would resume today. The judge has not admitted that the probe he is conducting is connected with the Quimby-Maciejewski case, but Pieschek confirmed that Thursday. Another investigator in the case, Sgt. Daniel Mclaughlin, hinted shortly after the hearing resumed this morning that it may not end quickly. "You're probably going to stand for a while," he told reporters. It's been more than a month since Quimby, 1434 Beachtree Drive, was found slumped over in his car, which was parked outside Symbo's Merry-0 Bar in Howard. A pathologist determined that the 21 -year-old Quimby died from multiple skull fractures. Maciejewski, 21, a Pulaski resident, was last seen about 3:25 a.m. on July 20 in Quimby 's car near Glendale Avenue and llillcrest Hoad, a half-mile from the tavem. Investigators said the two were at the Imr together the night of July 19. After the bar closed, they went out for pizza with some friends. More than 100 persons, including friends of the victims and people who were in the tavern that night, have been questioned. Reagan sees future for America great z r " ' " - 3 Gannett News Service DALLAS A confident Ronald Reagan declared a "springtime of hope for America" Thursday as he accepted the Republican Party's nomination to a second term as president of the United States. "Greatness lies ahead of us," predicted Reagan. "America is coming back and is more confident than ever about the future." The Nov. 6 election, said Reagan, will not be a choice between left or right "but of up or down . . ." His administration, said Reagan, brings a "record of accomplishment and the promise of continuation." He coupled his ebullient view of the future with attacks on the Democrats, blaming them for every tax increase of the past quarter-century. "Our friends in the other party," said Reagan, "have never met a tax they didn't like." George Bush, his run ning mate, accepted tne vice presidential nomina tion with a speech of praise for Reagan, saying he would lead America in the next four years "on the high road to peace, prosperity and opportunity." An 18-minute film introduced the President, and the evening concluded with Ray Charles' rendition of "America, The Beautiful." Here are excerpts from the night's main addresses: President Reagan: "The choices this year are not just between two different personalities, or between two political parties. They are between two different visions of the future, two fundamentally different ways of governing their government of pessimism, fear and limits or ours of hope, confidence and growth." "By nearly every measure, the position of poor Americans worsened under the leadership of our opponents. Teen-age drug use, out-of-wedlock births and crime increased dramatically. Urban neighborhoods and schools deteriorated. Those whom government intended to help discovered a cycle of dependency that could not be broken.

Doe probe continues: Brown County police Lt. Marvin Gerlikovski, right, and Officer Todd Zehms prepare to enter the chambers of Chief Judge William Duffy this Press-Gazette photo by Ken Bohrend morning. Duffy is conducting a closed-door John Doe hearing into the July 20 murder of John Quimby and disappearance of Mary Maciejewski. Suicide ruled in arrested man's death STURGEON BAY (PG) A 23-year-old rural Sturgeon Bay man who died in police custody earlier this summer fired the fatal shot himself with the arresting officer's revolver, Door County Judge Edwin C. Stephan ruled Thursday. The ruling came after a coroner's inquest into the shooting death of John Bochek, lioute! 2, Sturgeon Bay, in the emergency room of Door County Memorial Hospital during the early morning hours of July 30, Bochek had been arrested by Sheriffs Deputy Connie Uecker, 23, a few hours earlier on a drunk driving charge and had been taken to the emergency room at his request for a blood-alcohol test. A Breathalyzer test taken at the Door County Safety Building an hour after the arrest showed a .18 percent blood-alcohol content, almost twice the legal limit of .10 percent. Uecker, who joined the Sheriffs Department Feb. 12, 1983, testified Bochek had been so Please see SuicldeA-2 Zima won't oppose school project Please see ReaganA-2 By Scott Hildebrand Of the Press-Gazette Alderman Guy Zima will not stand in the way of a $6.5 million Green Bay school renovation project, which faces voter scrutiny in a Sept. 11 referendum. Zima led the campaign to defeat a school building and renovation plan in the district's only previous referendum in 1977. But he said Thursday there is little "fat" in the new project. "The project has been reduced more to the necessities, rather than a pie in the sky attitude," the West Side alderman said. Voters will be asked in the referendum whether they support spending $8.5 million to renovate and upgrade facilities at four high schools and two junior high schools. The Green Bay Education Association, the union representing the school district's 1,000 teachers, submitted petitions calling for the referendum in June. The petition drive was part of a protest over a contract dispute be- "If the project was extravagant I would be out In the community actively campaigning for a 'no' vote." Guy Zima tween the teachers and the School Board. The GBEA's Executive Board decided Thursday to make no recommendation to the union's general membership on the referendum. GBEA members will discuss the union's position on the referendum at a general membership meeting next Thursday. Zima said he does not plan to take an active role in support of the school project. He said it will be up to individual taxpayers to decide whether they can afford the facilities plan. "I don't know if the timing is right for a fairly large expenditure," he said. "That's why I want to leave it up to the public to decide whether to support it or not. "But if the project was extravagant I would be out in the community actively campaigning for a 'no' vote," he said. Zima said the project is a major improvement over the 1977 project. That $6.5 million project included major building additions and remodeling at West High School and Washington Junior High School. It was intended to be the first part of a $13 million building and renovation plan. Zima led the drive to put the 1977 project on the ballot and campaigned for voter rejection of the plan. It was defeated by a 56-44 percent margin. Zima said additions to buildings included in the 1977 plan were not needed at a time when school district enrollments were declining. The new plan, he said, addresses building needs which have to be dealt with sooner or later. He said the gy-masium and locker rooms at West High are in "atrocious" condition. The building plan includes $1.7 million for a new physical education facility and other improvements at West High School. It also calls for 12 new classrooms and several remodeled areas at Preble High School at a cost of $2.3 million, new vocational education rooms and classroom renovation at East High at a cost of $1.1 million and a new library, cafeteria and other improve-' ments at Washington Junior High for $95),(XX). Zima also led an effort to force an $11.4 million downtown redevelopment plan to a referendum in 1980. Voters approved that plan. No organized opposition to the school district project has yet sur-' faced. Earlier this week, a group named "Conserve Our Schools' was organized to encourage a 'yes' vote in the referendum. Fans will find changes at Lambeau Field By Tom Murphy Of the Press-Gazette About 3,000 tickets remain for the Lambeau Field debut Saturday night of the Green Bay Packers under new Coach Forrest Gregg. The Packers play the Indianapolis Colts in the 24th Annual Bishop's Charities Game. Kickoff is 7 pjn. Besides Gregg's debut in Green Bay, a number of other changes will be evident at Lambeau Field. One includes $2.8 million in capital improvements which doubled the number of restroom facilities and modernized concession stands. The 51 stands, now operated by Promotions Management, Inc., have been leased to 43 non-profit groups in Northeastern Wisconsin. 7 Vi j V- ' Forrest Gregg Makes Lambeau Field debut Saturday The organizations will retain 10 percent of gross soft drink and beer sales and 12 percent of food sales, said John Van Stechelman ofPMI. Among the concession innovations will be tap beer at prices ranging from $1.25 for 14 ounces to $2.50 for 33 ounces in a souvenir Packer plastic mug. Pop is priced at three levels with a 33-ounce "keeper kup" for $1.75. Tap beer will be available at concession stands only. Bottled Beer sales will continue in the bleachers. Packy Packer, Green Bay's response to standardized National Football League mascots, also will be introduced Saturday. He will wear a bulbous Packer helmet, an old-time butcher's apron and oversized black butcher's shoes. Although the NFL Properties' logo has Packy with sausage Something new When the 1984 Green Bay Packers play their first game in Lambeau Field at 7 p.m. Saturday, there'll be some new touches: Head Coach Forrest Gregg Mascot Packy Packer Revamped cheerleading squad More concession stands Bigger and better restrooms Inside today strung over his shoulder, the live version will not brandish brat-wurst. A yet unnamed group of 24 young women will double as an entertainment troupe and cheerleaders, said Shirley Van who continues as director. Meanwhile, with the opening of Highway 172 from 1-43 to Highway 41, Brown County police are anticipating a different traffic flow to lambeau Field. Police wid they're expecting that more motorists coming from the east and south will be using Highway 172. That may create a backup of vehicles on Oneida Street as they come off 172, police said. If a backup occurs, police urge motorists to use Ashland Avenue to Potts Avenue, then to the stadium. Around Wisconsin A-12.
