Enquirer and News, Battle Creek. Mich., Wed., Mar. 3. 1976 Delegates from 27 countries to hold 'court' on crimes against women LOOKING FC3 AHAYTOEXACH TKX l"GII 13C0KI CU3T0K31 ASK ABOUT A ENQUIRER and NEWS STOCK MARKET PAGE ADVERTISEMENT TELEPHONE 964-7161 aDGEHiD anm cms BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) - Wom-i en's organizations from 27 countries will ; meet here this week as a "International Court on Crimes Against Women." ! i . Men will be banned from the five-day ; meeting that starts Thursday, except for the opening and closing sessions. ... "We will not have a jury pass a sent-6 ence, but will hear charges and witnesses," one of the organizers said. Forty-eight women from 24 countries are scheduled to give testimony, but 700 to 800 women are expected to attend the meetings, including about 60 from the United States, the organizers said. Witnesses will include a Danish pornographic model, a French prostitute and women who had been sent to psychiatric institutions by their husbands. Leading feminists such as French writers Simone de Beauvoir and Benoite Groult, American writer Kate Millett, sociologist Diane Russell, French lawyer Gisele Halimi and others have pledged their support and some of these will attend. Organizers, however, declined to name well-known participants. ' - "We don't want any stars," said Ly-dia Hoton, an organizer. "We will not list our sponsoring organizations either. We do not want this to be a meeting of organizations. Our court is not a court of judges, lawyers, jurists. It is a people's court." "Limited admission of men was decided because at a similar British court on women crimes, males ridiculed the event," organizers said. "Woman journalists will be admitted to all proceedings." They outlined this agenda: Sexual crimes: rape, forced prostitution, molesting of women in pornography, the killing of women by men. Reproduction and medical crimes: forced motherhood by making contraceptives illegal or inaccessible, forced sterilization, seduction or rape of woman patients. Family and law crimes: unpaid work for housewives, wife beating, divorce rules favorable to men, persecution of women in the home. Economic and political crimes: lower pay for women, lack of job opportunities, women in poverty, torture of women political prisoners. rv V ( FP "A SQUARE DEAL ALWAYS" A-8 Police ruling out suspect in slayings DETROIT (AP) - Po-. lice say Carl Mayweather Jr. has been virtually ;- eliminated as a suspect in the "Big Foot" murder of five prostitutes last summer along Detroit's sleazy Cass Corridor. - Police said Tuesday they believe the killer labeled Big Foot because witnesses said he had very large feet and hands still is at large. When Mayweather was arrested Jan. 27, allegedly in the act of raping a woman, police said they believed the strapping man was Big Foot. But police said Tuesday that there are many reasons to doubt that Mayweather was the killer. :' Police said Mayweather was in jail Feb. 16, 1975. when the body of Valinda Brown was found raped : and strangled on the city's near West Side. Investigators said the slaying was very similar to one of the five Cass Corridor mur- ders. GEM WISE By JOHN R. GODFREY MEMBER AMERICAN GEM SOCIETY AMERICA'S SUPER ROCKS, PART II In my last article I spoke of two important diamond discoveries, the Eagle and the Uncle Sam. The latter stone was procured from the Crater of Diamonds near Murfreesboro. Arkansas. The Three other famous stones found in the area are the Eisenhower, the Gary Moore, and the Star of Arkansas. The Eisenhower is a 3.11 carat diamond found in 1957. It has been retained in its rough form which resembles the profile of President Eisenhower. Mrs. Ruth McRae of Texas, its discoverer and owner, had it mounted as a pendant. In i960 a 6.43 carat vel low flawless gem was disroveredbv Neils Bach. He named it the Gary Moore alter tne weu-knnwn radio and tele vision personality who had recently visuea ine mine. A 'New YorK urm set the stone's value at $6000. The Star of Arkansas in its 15.31 carat rough form Droved to be Haw less and colorless! After being cut to a long narrow shallow 8.27 carat marquise, it was valued at $11,000 to $15,000. Its fine quality and rarity for an American stone soon brought about a reappraisal at $25,000 to $100,000. Perhaps you are now wondering how cutting, color, claritv, and carat weight affect the value of a stone. I will cover this topic in a later ar ticle. However, I can personally answer this and other questions and show you some gleaming examples at my store. There's no charge for askine. no charge for looking.
