40 Santa Cruz Sentinel Wednesday, March 25, 1981 Atlanta Mothers Draw Criticism For Taking Cash ATLANTA (AP) The mothers of some of the 20 black youths slain recently in the Atlanta area are being criticized by civil rights leaders for stumping the nation in search of donations. "Some try to take advantage of it. Some of the relatives act as if they ought to be compensated for their closeness to the children," said state Sen. Julian Bond, local president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Several parents have pleaded for money while giving lectures or appearing at memorial services and marches being staged across the nation in memory of the 20 dead youths and two others who have disappeared during the past 20 months. The Committee to Stop Children's Murders, a mothers' group formed by the parent of a slain child, is in the process of sending $618 checks to each of the 22 families, said Lenora Laken, a volunteer from Philadelphia and the wife of tracker Don Laken, a participant in many weekend searches for clues in the cases. More money will be mailed by the committee after an accountant straightens out the group's bookkeeping system, Mrs. Laken said. "We're not soliciting anything. It's just that we have overwhelming support, and it comes in from all over the country," she said. However, Mrs. Laken has scheduled several appearances in which the mothers have accepted or pleaded for money. Six appearances are scheduled for the coming weekend and dozens more in weeks to come, said Mrs. Laken. She said about five such engagements are scheduled daily. Most of the slain youths came from low-income families. Some came from single-parent homes. "Many of us parents are not working people. We need all the help that people can give. So far, it's not enough," said Beverly Belt, stepmother of victim Earl Lee Terrell. The foster mother of 10-year-old Darron Glass, missing since last September, charges fees for interviews. Fannie Mae Smith told a reporter Tuesday she would refuse to discuss the cases for less than $40 an hour. "I'm not going to do this for free. It's $20 for a half hour, and more depending on how much time it takes," she told The Associated Press. Kraft Cleared Of Cocaine Charges WASHINGTON (AP) - Tim Kraft, who resigned as Jimmy Carter's re-election campaign manager in the face of allegations that he had used cocaine on two occasions has been cleared of the charges by a special prosecutor. "Credible evidence ... does not warrant any criminal charge," special prosecutor Gerald J. Gallinghouse said in papers filed Tuesday with U.S. District Judge Bar- rington D. Parker. The prosecutor said no further investigation is neces sary and that he will recommend to a special judicial panel that there be no indictment. Kraft resigned in the crucial last two months before the election. He issued a statement Tuesday through his lawyers saying the nine months of investigation has cost him and the American taxpayer a great deal of money. "I sincerely wish some enterprising reporter or news organization would tabulate and report on the vast sums spent over the last three years for special prosecutors and their investigations into mischievous and meritless al legations, which would customarily be rejected," Kraft said. Gallinghouse was appointed by a three-judge U.S. appeals court under an ethics-in-government law that calls for a special prosecutor when allegations are made against a public official. When the charges surfaced last fall, Kraft said they grew out of an investigation into allegations that Carter chief of staff Hamilton Jordan had taken cocaine at New York's Studio 54 in 1978. In that case, too, a special prosecutor decided there was insufficient evidence to indict Jordan. Foster Mother Says Judy Confessed To 3 Other Murders INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Just a few days before he was electrocuted, convicted murderer Steven Judy confessed that he was responsible for at least three unsolved deaths and alluded as well to a "string of bodies" in four states, his foster mother says. Police said they had suspected Judy of committing one of the murders and are investigating the other deaths. Mary Carr, Judy's foster mother, said she divulged Judy's confession because she was afraid an innocent person could be wrongfully held in those cases. "I thought about not saying anything," Mrs. Carr said at a news conference Tuesday at her Indianapolis home. She said she had a "battle of conscience over who to tell and when to tell." "I'm just hoping some other man hasn't been convicted of something Steve's done," she said. "I've gotten into this death penalty thing so deep." Judy, 24, was electrocuted March 9 for the rape and murder of Terry Lee Chasteen and the drownings of her three young children. He had refused to appeal his death sentence, saying he would rather be executed than spend his life in prison. Mrs. Carr said Judy told her March 4 and March 6 that he killed Linda Unverzagt, 28, of Indianapolis, whose body was found Nov. 4, 1978, in an abandoned house. She had been strangled and raped. Judy also told her about the deaths of two Louisiana women, Mrs. Carr said, although she didn't know details. Mrs. Carr said Judy also referred to "a string of" bodies in Illinois, Texas, Florida and Louisiana, but didn't go into details because "I started getting a twitch that was driving both of us bananas." Record Drug Seizure Reported In Tennessee SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - After seizing 614 pounds of uncut cocaine reportedly the second-biggest haul in U.S. history Tennessee authorities were searching today for the four people who are believed to have brought it into the country. The cocaine in dozens of plastic yellow bags filling 13 boxes and two duffel bags was taken from an unattended airplane at the Sevier County Airport. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation officials said the cocaine has an estimated street value of $217 million. It is under lock and key in Nashville, where it was taken for weighing, analysis and safekeeping after Tuesday's predawn raid, they said.
