Lack Clues In Slaying ROME - 'Rome police reported no new leads Monday in the stabbing death of a Rome liquor store owner. Detective Francis Uhl, who is heading the investigation into the weekend killing of Stanley E. Gryziec, 59, of 608 S. James St., reported Monday that the descriptions of the two assailants, who handcuffed Gryziec's wife before binding and stabbing Gryziec, are vague since the two were wearing ski masks. Uhl said it is known only that both are male, one of average height and stocky build, the other tall and slim. The two assailants broke into the Gryziec home late Saturday night and made off with about $100 in cash, Uhl said. He said the couple's 6 - year - oid grandson was asleep upstairs during the break - in, and was unharmed. Gryziec's home is next door to the liquor store he has operated for 30 years, and police believe the two men were looking for liquor store revenues when they broke into Gryziec's house. ■ Anyone who was in the S. James Street area late Saturday night or early Sunday morning is requested to contact the police department.

ENGINEER TO TALK AUBURN - The regular meeting of the Cayuga County Association of Villages will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Riordan's Restaurant. William Catto, county environmental health and sewer engineer, Big Turnout For Auburn Swim Squad By TIM ANDERSON AUBURN — A resolution to require that all contract negotiations between the Auburn School District and any bargaining agencies be conducted at public sessions was tabled at Monday night's meeting of the Board of Education. Peter Kachris, assistant superintendent of administration, told the board that the Auburn Teachers Association (ATA) contract specifically requires that initial contract negotiations be conducted in private. Should the board, pass the resolution, he said, it would be a violation of that contract. , However, Kachris said, it "would not be out of order for the board to go on record as approving of such a resolution." Board Member Roger Basha suggested that since John McCarthy, who submitted the resolution, was not present, the board should table the motion until the next session "out of courtesy to a fellow board member." McCarthy was unable to attend becausehe was stranded in Marcellus by the unexpected snowfall, according to Board President James Cranfield. Another McCarthy resolution requiring all applicants for employment by the school district to "identify their relationship, by blood or marriage,, to any administrator employed currently by the district," or to "incumbent board members" was also tabled. The resolution comes on the heels of some controversy in the district concerning alleged nepotism. In other action, the board approved payment of all school district bills for the month of October. The board also moved to a accept a bid of $1,920 by the Automatic Letter Service for the. purchase of new typewriters fro Auburn High School. On behalf of the board, Father James Enright congratulated the Auburn High School Model United Nations Club for winning the "Outstanding Individual Delegation" awared award at last weekend's Model United Nations. The event was conducted at Cayuga County Community College. ' The board approved a motion by Cranfield to move December's board meeting from Dec. 6 to Dec. 13, because "The 13th is the only date we can find for the board Christmas party."

It took her 11 V* hours to per - cate for setting a record for one con - form this feat. Peeler Outdoes Herself WOLCOTT - Kathy Wafler, a 17 - year old high school senior from Wolcott, recently broke her "world record" for the longest apple peel. Kathy cut a strip of peel from one Twenty - Ounce apple 2,068 inches, or 172.33 feet, well over half the length of a football field.

Eleven and a half hours of precise, concentrated work left the champion with tired eyes and a sore back. She had been practicing in odd moments' for about two weeks before the contest and says that her father gave her some useful tips.
