Ga. <AP) - A wealthy widow whose family warned her against living alone has become the fifth woman found strangled in 3'* months in a quiet, residential neighborhood of this west Georgia city. Unlike the four other victims, all of whom were strangled with stockings, authorities speculate Kathleen Woodruff, 74, was killed with her own scarf. Mrs. Woodruff, widow of former University of Georgia football coach George "Kid" Woodruff ST. and a member of one c4 Columbus's most prominent families, was discovered desd in her'bed'lite Wednesday morning by her maid. As they have in the previous murders, police refused to discuss she Woodruff case in detail, but officers at the scene said Mrs. Woodruff apparenUy had been beaten and strangled by an intruder who entered her brick home through an unlocked rear window. After the first two murders, many of the residents in the neighborhood armed themselves with pistols, burglar bars, dogs and dead-bolt locks, but Mrs. Woodruff apparently did not fear for her safety. Tonimie Stevens, the Woodruff family maid for 53 years, said the widow repeatedly was urged to take on a live-in companion. "She just wouldn't listen. She felt nobody would bother her." Mrs Stevens saM. The other four victims, aged between 59 and 89. also were found strangled a; their homes in the same Wynnton Road district of Columbus.

His plan was to make it from the crest of Squaw Valley to Picayme ValJey 10 miles west, aboot 200 mfles north of San Francisco.

That evening he saw a helicopter, but it swooped behind some trees and vanished. "If it had come over 30 feet more it would have seen me," he said. "I yelled, but I couldn't make myself heard over the rotor." On Monday morning the Placer County Search and Rescue Team began scouring the mountains near Nevada for him. But night came again, and Schine was still lost, and fear- ing for his life. He dug out another cave and slept. He said he awcke Tuesday determined to get a grip on himself. "I got the direction right this time, and began foDowing the sun. I didn't see an animal or a person for three days." At a stream, Schine found his first signs of civilization — discarded beer cans. He climbed a hill; in the distance, voices. "I thought I was hearine things again," he said, but it was true this time. He was hearing, and finally saw, the rescue team.
