Green Beret cites threats by patients United Press International FT. BRAGG, N. C.'- Capt. Jeffrey MacDonald, a Green Beret doctor accused of killing his pregnant wife and two daughters testified at his military hearing yesterday that dfug users he had treated threatened his life, his attorney said. Questioned-by Col. Warren V. Rock, the hearing examiner who joined in the four hours of cross examination, MacDonald said drug patients commonly showed paranoid tendencies That manifested themselves in threats. MacDonaW has maintained his family was attacked by three men and a blonde woman, who he said may have been on drugs. He said the woman repeatedly chanted, "Acid is groovy." The Army originally described the incident as an apparent "ritual killing" before it charged MacDonald. Attorney Bernard Segal of Philadelphia, president of the American Bar Association and the only source of information for newsmen who are barred from the proceedings, said MacDonald illustrated three types of threats he had received. He said MacDonald related patients would either say, "I'm going to kill you," "I'll get you" or "You'll- be sorry for doing that." Rock, who must determine whether MacDonald faces a court-martial for the February slayings, recessed the hearing at the conclusion of yesterday's cross-examination to allow prosecution attorneys time to prepare rebuttal testimony. He set Aug. 25 as the tentative resumption date. Segal said Rock participated for about 45 minutes in the questioning. His final question, according to Segal, was, "Did you murder your wife and children?" The doctor almost choked as he replied, "No," Segal said. The prosecution laid out the alleged murder weapons before MacDonald—two paring kives, an ice pick and an 18- inch-long board about two inches thick. He said he had never seen any of them before. MacDonald also said he did not recognize two pictures the prosecution showed. One was of a male with a thin mustache, similar to a sketch drawn by an artist under direction of MacDonald and the second a picture of a girl with long black hair. MacDonald could not identify a hair brush found in his apartment that had brown hairs with light roots. It presumably didn't belong to anyone in the household.
