Then they drove off again and stopped in a pasture, according to the taped statement. McCrary said he left the car, heard the woman "holler" and heard shots fired. McCrary said he did not see the woman die, but said: "I heard him (Taylor) holler something back to her, I don't know. He was choking her or something. I was too far away to see. I was disgusted." After hearing the shots, McCrary said, "I remember I stopped and I flinched and the chills run down my back."

Daddy's playing in his office clothes!" Amonium compound used as antidote DENVER (AP) - Tox- icologisls at the University of Colorado Medical Center say they are using a little-known amonium compound as an antidote for several chemeial and plant poisons. Drs. John E. Ott and Barry Rumack say the substance, called physostigmine, has been used at Colorado General Hospital to counteract overdoses of more than 100 brands of sleeping pills, decongestants and analgesics. The substance has' also been used to counteract antidepre's- sioh drugs and poisonous plant substances, Olt and Rumack said. The doctors added that near- ly all the counteracted poi- sonous'substances are widely available to the general public. Olt and Rumack told a recent Denver pediatrics seminar for doctors that physostigmine is not widely recognized as a valuable antidote.
