The strategy session underscored the dependence of financially strapped cities upon the federal government. " The U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting centered mainly on the question of what will the Democratic president do for the cities. The mayors and Carter representative Howard Samuels agreed that the most crucial task is stimulating employment in the cities and stemming the flight of resources and people to the suburban areas. "You've got to move jobs in or people out," said Samuels, a New York Democratic "The people are there, the unused (factory) capacity is there/' so it is important to make an allout effort for urban recovery. Syracuse Mayor Lee Alexander, vice president of the U.S. Conference of May ors, is among tl By MIKE CONNOR ROME — Police are seeking two men in connection with the weekend stabbing death of a Rome liquor store owner. A spokesman for the Rome Police Department said Sunday Stanley E. Gryzier, 59, of 608 S. James St., Rome, was found bound and stabbed early Sunday morning at his home. Gryziec was the owner of Gryziec's liquor store at 606 S. James St. Police were summoned to the scene at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday by Gryziec's brother, Bernard, who had been told of the attack by the slain man's wife, Esther. Mrs. Gryziec told police that she was in the kitchen at home late Saturday night when two men, both wearing ski masks that covered their heads entirely, broke through the door. She told police the men handcuffed her, and said she believes she lost consciousness momentarily when one of the men choked her. Before they left the house, she said, the men removed the handcuffs. Mrs. Gryziec then tried to phone for helo. but discovered the telephone lines in the house had been cut. She found her husband lying in a front hallway bound with cords apparently taken from blinds. Mrs. Gryziec went to the home of her brother - in - law, who called the police. When Patrolman John Keys arrived at the scene, Mrs; Gryziec led him to where her husband was lying bound and stabbed. Gryziec was taken to Rome City Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:23 a.m. Sunday by an attending physician, Dr. N. Rachakonda. It was later determined - that Gryziec had died of a stab wound through the left side of the back which penetrated the heart. Robbery was the apparent motive for the break - in, police said, but it had not been determined Sunday whether anything was missing from the house. Detective Francis Uhl, who was assigned to the case, was being assisted by the Oneida County district attorney's office and the state police. In a move to develop leads, police have requested that anyone who was in the S. James Street area between 10:30 p.m. Saturday and 12:45 a.m. Sunday please, contact the department. Gryziec, who owned and operated the liquor store next to his home since 1946, is survived by his wife and three children.

Accompanying the Syracuse mayor is Mrs. Ann C: Michel, federal and state aid coordinator for the city. ( New York City Abe Beame said Carter has suggested three ways for boosting urban employment — extending benefits to firms for each person they hire off the jobless rolls, an increased federal commitment to on - the - job training programs and federal" incentives to prevent layoffs. Other incentives suggested by Samuels or the mayors included an urban development bank, which would use federal funds to provide business with low - interest loans for locating or expanding in a city and to cities for funding certain economic projects. "Our problem isn't that we don't have job opportunities, because we do," said George Moscone of San Francisco. "We're hurt because we provide jobs to about 250,000 people who live outside the city." Richard Fulton of Nashville said another problem facing the nation's big cities is the flight of industry overseas where labor is cheaper. s Samuels spent much of his time Sunday reiterating that Carter would not "simply throw money" into city coffers. "He's got to know how much a program will cost, how it's going to run and how it's going to be audited" before endorsing any urban programs, Samuels said.. Asked about that edict, conference President Kenneth Gibson of Newark said, "It. doesn't discourage me. I don't throw money at my. problems in Newark." Some 120 mayors were meeting to decide what priorities they will present to Congress and to Carter in the coming months. Gibson said conference officials would request a meeting with the President - elect "to convince him the cities should be a top priority." . "We're not talking about what the mayors want, we're talking about what the people need," said Gibson. He called for increased federal aid to stimulate employment and assist in such areas as housing, transportation and health. The mayors attempted to determine what Carter's election would mean for the cities, but many obviously were taking a wait - and - see attitude. The body of Mrs. Evelyn Brezee, 50, is carried from a car parked on a dirt road off the Kirkville Road near Route 481 in the Town of DeWitt. Howard Hanes, 54, a boarder at Mrs. Brezee's house, was also found dead in the car. Carbon monoxide poisoning believed to be the cause of death, police said. Carrying the stretcher are John Coleman, left, and David Crosley of the Onondaga County Medical Examiner's Office. With them are Lt. Robert Rhoades of the county sheriffs department and Assistant Dist. Atty. John Brenizer. Black Clergyman Again Shut Out •PLAINS, Ga. (AP) — Deacons Sunday., locked the front doors, of the church, to which President - elect Jimmy Carter belongs, after refusing a black activist minister admission through a basement door for worship services. Last Sunday, services were canceled to keep the black pastor away. The Rev. Clennon King, minister of a nondenominational church in nearby Albany, said he would return to the Plains Baptist Church next Sunday to repeat' his efforts to join the congregation. Carter, . on a working vacation at St. Simons Island off the Georgia coast, was not present on Sunday. But his cousin, state Sen. Hugh Carter, described the in Earthquakes Shake Iran, Mindanao TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - A severe earthquake struck a mountainous region of northeast Iran on Sunday morning, killing at least 16 persons ' and injuring 32, according to the relief agency, Red Lion and Sun.; Another quake was recorded early Monday on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, but there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage there. Most of the victims in the Iranian quake lived in the village of Vandik, where all of the 150 mud - brick houses collapsed, a spokesman for the Red Lion and Sun said. That agency is Iran's equivalent of the Red Cross. - . cident as "a move to. embarrass the President - elect in his church." ■ But Jimmy. Carter said through an aide he has reason to hope his home church's policy of denying entrance to blacks will be changed at a church conference to be held after worship services next Sunday. Carter spokesman Jody Powell said Carter would attend the meeting next Sunday and may try to convince others to - change the church policy. The church's pastor, the Rev. Bruce Edwards, also did not attend Sunday's services. He said last week that he would not be present because of a previous commitment. Deacons said he was on vacation. The Rev. Mr. Edwards5 has been asked to resign after publicly criticizing the deacons' refusal to admit the. Rev. Mr. King. A church meeting has been called for Nov; 14 to consider the' matter. Deacons refused to talk with reporters after Sunday's services. The Rev. Mr. King arrived just after Sunday school classes began. He walked into a children's classroom in the basement and then into an adjacent room, where the men's class was meeting. He was allowed to ".stay for the session, but two deacons physically restrained him afterwards from following members of the class, sometimes taught by Carter, upstairs to the sanctuary. The deacons handed the Rev. Mr. King a copy of a church rule adopted in 1965 which requires ushers to refuse admission to "any Negroes or any other civil rights agitators." the printed statement noted that Carter, a former deacon, voted against the rule when it was adopted. Deaths of 2 Laid to Gas Poisoning By GREGORY W. MILLER Carbon monoxide poisoning is believed to be the cause of the deaths of two persons whose bodies were found Sunday evening in a car parked on a dirt road in DeWitt. Howard Haynes, 54, and Evelyn Brezee, 50, were pronounced dead at the scene. Deputies said two of her children found the bodies. The car was parked not far from her home. Haynes had been a boarder at the Brezee house at 6886 Benedict Rd. Lt. Michael F. Goudy III said "the two. had last been seen Saturday night. Goudy said he assumed the deaths had been accidental, since the car's ignitition was on and there was no gasoline left in the gas tank. Autopsies were scheduled for Monday by the Onondaga County Medical Examin - - er's Office. However, that office gave as a tentative cause of death carbon monox - ' ide poisoning. The 1964 station wagon, which was owned by Haynes, was parked on a rutted dirt road in the middle of a field off Kirkville Road. The road, which is rarely used, leads to Benedict Road, Goudy said. Mrs. Brezee was on the driver's side of the front seat, while Haynes was beside her. The windows of the car were rolled up. The bodies were discovered at about 5 p.m. by two of Mrs. Brezee's children, Goudy said, who then summoned an older relative. Service arrangements for her will be made by Traub Funeral Home, Bridgeport. Arrangements for Haynes were not confirmed Sunday night. snowfall. One person was hospitalized for a possible neck injury and two cars were towed from the accidents, which occurred at about 10 p.m. in the northbound and southbound lanes of the highway on the ice - slickened bridge over the Seneca River. Ironically, only moments before the accidents, Town of Clay police dispatcher Gerald Green had decided to telephone radio stations with warnings about driving conditions, which had been made haz - . ardous by the nearly one inch of wet, freezing snow that fell Sunday night. According to state Trooper Edwin E. Croucher, the accidents began in the northbound lane of 481 when a cardriven by Glynn M. Meggisbn, 20, of PeekskiU, skidded sideways on the icy bridge and was hit by a car driven by Linda Deeb, 26, of Old Forge. In quick succession, Croucher said,, three other cars coming over the bridge piled into the first two when they tried to Stop, but could not because of the ice. The second accident occurred in the southbound lane, Croucher said, when two ears pulling over to help with the first accident skidded and collided.
