mt Th» M* Jntw Uke. KaMpA Monttftt SSftWS«a»8!fc^^ rap crime... WASHINGTON AP) - They ay they are prisoners in their own apartments, and not .even safe there. They say they are afraid to walk the streets of their city and tbe halls of their public bousing buildings because they've been mugged, beaten, or taken by con artists. They say they are angry because, after working hard all their lives, the; have not obtained the peace and respect they feel they deserve. And they say they want the government to take their lax dollars and do something about it. These are Washington's elderly, who, because of their frailty and loneliness are particularly susceptible to crime. About a dozen of these elderly victims testified this week before the House Select Committee on Aging at a hearing held in the Edgewood Terrace Senior Citizens Center in northeast Washington. "In a free country ... you can't hardly live for being afraid you'll be ill-treated by the same kind of animal you are -- a human being," James F. Kelley. 74, said. Kelley's wife had been mugged. "I just can't see why the citizens of America who have worked hard for this country and gotten to this golden age, and can't be respected," he said, tears brimming in his bright brown eyes. "There have been several robberies and people have been beaten up in my building. Two of them never came back from the hospital," Mrs. Sinclair Wylie said. "It nukes you feel like you are living in a prison. I even call my apartment 'Ceitblock 1003,'" Mrs. Wylie said. About 35 per cent of all crimes committed in Washington, D.C., are against people over 50, Del. Walter Fauntroy, D-D.C., testified. But psychological consequences of crime are perhaps more traumatic for the elderly than are the physical ones, Fauntroy said, causing senior citizens to curtail trips to the bank, market and church. Because of the need for someone to talk to and declining mental awareness, senior citizens are easy marks for confidence men, said police LI. Kenneth Moreland. Only about five to 10 per cent of those who have been taken in by a con artist report the crime. Moreland said. They are embarrassed or feel they did something illegal. All who testified decried a lack of security in the National Capital Housing Authority senior citizen buildings. It's easy for alcoholics, robbers and eon men to get in and out, they said. Mrs. Tomme Pierre, head of a r e s i d e n t c o u n c i l f r o m those buildings, said most security guards are untrained, underpaid students. Most of those who testified had either been mugged themselves, or had neighbors who were victimized. Many cried as they recounted being attacked on busy streets in broad daylight.

(AP) - "Child bearing has become an industry," says an official of the Child Welfare League of America. "Today, ordering a baby is like putting in an order for a new Vega. "You buy the color you want, you buy the model you want and all that anyone cares is that you've got enough money to pay;, fpr it," Merwin R. Crow, the organization's assistant executive director, "said Friday, Black-market babies are a booming business in this country, he told the Portland City Club. "The high price for an infant today ; -- granted he or she is white, physically fit and mentally okay - is between $40,000 and $50,000. "A low-cost baby would be between $7,000 and $8,000," he said. "And maybe you could get a 'Friday Surprise 1 for under $7,000." Crow estimated that about 5,000 children in the U.S. are sold on the black market annually to "wealthy, childless couples who will do anything or pay anything for children." He added, "If people don't realize what black-marketing of babies is doing, the wealthy will win. Simply because someone has $40,000 or $50,000 to spend doesn't mean they will make good parents. Crow said there are about 100,000 legally adoptable children in America, "but most of them are not white and some have physical and mental problems." He urged that potential adoptive parents deal only .with legally accepted agencies and to "at least consider the possibilities of taking hard-to-place children." That category includes older children, youngsters of mixed races, those with physical problems, the retarded, the emotionally disturbed and siblings whose families requested that they be kept together. "There has been a phenomenal flipflop that's created a scarcity of children," he said. "In 1970, 75 per cent of all unmarried pregnant women gave up their babies for adoption. "In 1975, only 25 per cent did because of the pill and abortion and the sociological acceptance of keeping an illegitimate child."
