"I am homef alone most of the time. The peephole at least gives you some sense of security since you can see who is at the door. Many times people ring my bell and say they have the wrong apartment.

'Kidnaped' Boy's Body Is Found; Mother Held Longview, Tex., Oct. 7 (UPI) Rickey Dell Crowder, a 22-month-old baby whose mother reported him kidnaped and begged for his return, was found dead today in the bottom of a deep gully. The 25-year-old mother was charged with murder. T "" " Hilda's Tab: S95 Million Rickey Dell's brother, Rex Jr., 5, led police to the scene. Rex j had said several times that he ; had heard Rickey Dell crying and ' thought he could take police to the spot. The mother, Mrs. Rex Crowd- ; er, also was there when the body j was found. j Mother Passes Out I The mother, Mrs. Rex Crowder j "passed out," Sheriff Noble Crawford said. She was locked up in a hospital room with bars on the window. Medical Examiner Ernest Jones said the baby had been dead 12 to 15 hours. The baby apparently was thrown down the gully last night, in T-shirt and diaper, when the temperature was in the 40s. Rickey Dell's father, a private in the Air Force, is on his way home from Clark Air Force Base i'i the Jfhuippines on emergency; leave. ' ' 1 the yard, after they had been ejected on the order of Nitze about 5 P.M., Celler said he had received assurances from the secretary about the new construction. Dismissals to Halt Celler added 'there will be no more discharges until an official study is completed" in several months. Workmen at the yard and public officials have voiced concern that the yard, where jobs have been declining steadily, may ultimately close. Celler was among a group of Congressmen who met at the jrard with Nitze and Republican Sens. Kenneth B. Keating and Jacob Javits. Earlier, Nitze told reporters that no decisions had been made on the fate of the huge naval installation. Not Music to Dolan This was no music to theears of Thomas Dolan, president of the Brooklyn Metals Trades Union. "It's what we've been hearing for a year now," snapped Dolan. He said there were now only 9,750 employed at the yard, with 100 machinists due to be laid off in December. Dolan said that if the Navy failed to come up with a contract today, further layoffs of workers would be inevitable. Mayor Wagner and Robert F. Kennedy, Keating's Democratic Senatorial election opponent, dropped in during the afternoon to talk with Nitze. New Orleans, Oct. 7 (AP) Hurricane Hilda's rampage through Louisiana's billion-dollar offshore oil fields was the most costly in the industry's history, a check showed today. Estimate of the known loss stood at $25 million after a preliminary inspection, bringing the total hurricane damage to $95 million. Oilmen said the figure could spiral upward as they reach more of the expensive rigs which dot the Gulf of Mexico to the south and east of the mouth of the Mississippi River, in the shallow seas of the con-ijwntal shelf.; r t ; Mother Shops, 2 Babies Die A Queens jnother left her two young daughters alone for an hour and a half yesterday to go shopping.

"Now a Legal Matter" He said yesterday that the apartment has a doorman and peepholes are not necessary. He thinks the door should be restored, noting that if everyone were to install peepholes, they would be placed at different heights, destroying the looks of his property. He said he didn't know about the peephole until July. "It is now a legal matter and is in the hands of our attorneys," Frankel said. Mrs. Janovic's attorney, Bruce Gould, said he plans to ask City Council to pass legislation allowing peephole installations. If an eviction is issued, he will fight it in Civil Court.
