RMflandt Mr Fodt 8-W »diiMdoy ,Mi.26.1M> PeiYekr ghfcn death senfencer ^ITI geh Bfe LOS ANGELES {UPI)-A former pdiceman has been given t »o death seotences for his part in tiw "double indemni^" Mayings of his wife and bis girl friend 's husband. A seven-man, five-woman jury retunied the verdict against Paul Perveler, 31. Tuesday. The same jury also sentenced his platinum-haired girlfriend to life in prison for ber part in the slayings. Last week the same jury convicted Perveler and Mrs. Kristina Cromwell, 27, of fiist- degree murder for the Dec 11, 1966. slaying of ilarim Crom- weU. 27. and the April 30. 1968. death of Jtrs. Cheryl Perveler. The prosecution, which charged the motive for the killings was to collect up to $85,000 in double indemnity insurance policies, termed the killings "the most brutal, savage, cold^ilooded. pre-meditated murders imaginable." Mrs. Cromwell was given a life sentence after her attorney begged for mercy, arguing that she was not an equal partner in the death of her husband and that she had been under Per\°eler 's influence. Marlm Cromwell's body was found in the couide 's burning home and Mrs. Pervder was shot to death in the carport of their apartment house Just seven weeks after her marriage. Kixon busy searching out others' viewpoint By MERRIMAN SMITH UPl While Heusa Raperter BONN. Germany (UPI)— ".Vow. let me see if I have this right" "May we return to that point for a moment? I want to be completely clear about your position." These were actual and frequent quotations from President Nbcon as he talked in private with leaders of NATO and the Belgian government in Brussels, and as his discusaons went on at even greater length in Britain with Prime Minister Harold Wilson. FurthermoFe, this was to be a continuing Nixon pattern here in Germany, then m Home and Paris. .'Vccording to his hosts thus far, the technique of searching out and understanding the other man's viewpomt was being well received locally. In virtually every conversa- ticm with U.S. officials on the inside of Nixm's meetings with European leaders, they made one central point: Tiw President could exchange views and explore crisis situations without agreeing or disagreeing with lus opposite numbers. Undoubtedly, this made for somethmg less than fireworks on the front pages and airwaves of the wotid, but it was the way Nixon wanted his trip to go. His mission was essentially exploratory, educational and designed to profit from the amplification of ideas and issues during face to face contacts, as opposed to exchanging viewpomts through stilted diplomatic channels. During his bng hours of conversation in London there were, to be sure, black notebooks jammed with items for discussiMi. Nixon studied these as a college senior cramming for his finals but, there was no priority of subjects in many ti his European c(Hiversations. Nbcon and Wilson, for example, jumped all over the ti^ical lot when they were togetho-. N^xon had attempted to sUte his purposes plainly and public- 1 ]y but quite obviously not to! the satisfaction of certam' diplomatic experts in government These specialists much preferred the often delicate shadings of carefid diplomatic language' to what could tie the less exciting truth. nccsi iMD nnt /m ms Y*« caa lia.
