WASHINGTON WV-If they can get passports and money, 12 American World War II veterans hope to go to Moscow for a celebration of the meeting of tJ.S. and Soviet troops at the Elbe River in Germany 10 years ago. The 12, members of a group calling themselves the American Veterans of the Elibc River Linkup, accepted a Russian invitation yesterday in a cable saying Without qualification that "we will leave for Moscow hi a few days." But Joseph , Polowsky, of Chicago, secretary of the group, conceded that funds must be raised to finance the trip, although he said, ' 'We'll try to figure out something." There was no official indication what attitude the State Department might take when the men apply for passports. Both Polowsky's group and the Elbe Day National Veterans Committee—a group set up by five veterans' organizations—celebrate today the meeting of Russian and American troops at the Elbe April 25, 1945. Armies of the two nations had been fighting across Germany from opposite directions. Polowsby's group is composed of men actually present at the meet- Ing of the troops. The Moscow celebration is planned for May 9, the day Russia recognizes as the end of the fighting with Germany. Police Probe Rape-Murder Of Woman, 86 NEWPORT, E.

W) — A man described by police as a former suitor was questioned early today in the bludgeon slaying of Miss Elizabeth Dose, 29, a pretty Beth Israel Hospital nurse. Police took the man into custody for extensive questioning after he and four other male friends of the victim underwent lie detector and chemical tests. Police Said the man reacted to the lie detector test and chemical tests showed that blood might have come in contact with one of his cheeks. During a break in the questioning, police said the man admitted he had a key to Miss Dose's apartment. The man who killed the attractive nurse by striking her on the head with a heavy weapon tried to cover up his crime by setting fire to the bed on which she lay. A medical examination showed she was clubbed to death. Police said a Cambridge man Informed them he and Miss Dose had a date Friday night and that they both returned to her apartment. He was quoted as saying that Miss Dose changed into a robe and had coffee with him before he left about 12:30 a.m. Saturday. The killer apparently entered the apartment after he left. About four hours later three other tenants of the apartment house smelled smoke and together they broke into Miss Dose's kitchenette apartment and discovered her body on the burning bed. Police said she had not been sexually attacked and that robbery was not the motive. Miss Dose came here about 18 months ago. She was a graduate of Mercy College of Nursing, San Diego, Calif., in the class of 1950. Five to Receive Honor Degrees From Hendrix COlSfWAY, Ark.
