The callers threatened her life, she said. They called her names. Ultimately, she fled El Paso with her husband all because a collection agency was pressuring the couple to pay a $2,000 credit-card debt. Now, it's the credit-card company that owes. A jury awarded the Driscols $11 million, ruling that Household Credit Services Inc. of Salinas, Calif., and the now-defunct Allied Adjustment Bureau violated the state Debt Collection Practices Act. The law prohibits debt collectors from threatening violence or making harassing or obscene calls. Fuhrman tapes held The Associated Press LOS ANGELES A screenwriter decided Thursday she still won t give audiotapes of her Mark Fuhrman interviews to lawyers for Fuhrman or the police depart ment, even though the O.J. Simpson trial judge vouched for the attorneys' integrity. Laura Hart McKinny worries that more details from her explosive tapes will be leaked to the media if additional tapes or transcripts are disseminated, her lawyer said. Poultry labels changing The Associated Press WASHINGTON If a packaged chicken is frozen solid, it's not "fresh," the Agriculture Department has decided. The new rule takes effect in a year. Currently, poultry that has been chilled to as low as 0 degrees Fahrenheit frozen stiff can be sold as fresh. Under the new rule, birds can be called fresh only if they have never been chilled below 26 degrees, the temperature at which chickens and turkeys begin to freeze. 25 not immunized The Associated Press ATLANTA About 25 percent of the nation's toddlers aren't protected against measles, mumps, polio and other common childhood diseases despite a government push for vaccinations, federal figures show. The number of fully vaccinated youngsters ages 19 to 35 months is at a record high near 75 percent but the figure has remained about the same for two years, said Dr. Walter Orenstein, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Immunization Program. Reynolds urged to quit The Associated Press WASHINGTON The top House Democrat urged Rep. Mel Reynolds on Thursday to resign to avoid possible expulsion from Congress due to his convictions for sexual miscon duct with a minor.

A New York City resident, Eisenstaedt died Wednesday vacationing on Martha's Vineyard. Eisenstaedt's images of the famous and infamous Hitler and Mussolini, Marilyn Monroe, Ernest Hemingway, the Kennedys, Sophia Loren won him fame and 87 covers at Life, where he was one of the original staff photographers. But his most acclaimed photograph showed two ordinary people: a sailor sweeping a nurse off her feet with a kiss in New York's Times Square on the day 50 years ago this month that Japan surrendered to end World War II. The photo, which expressed the unbounded joy and relief that Americans felt at the end of the , war, became a Life cover. It remains a defining moment in photojournalism. "When people don't know me anymore they will remember that picture," Eisenstaedt said years later. 'Moments in photography' His work helped elevate the image of photographers as "not just button-pushers but creative journalists," said Howard Chap-nick, a former president of the Black Star picture group and author of Truth Needs No Ally, a history of photojournalism. Eisenstaedt pursued "the very spontaneous, instantaneous moments in photography that people have tried to emulate for the past half-century," Chapnick said.

"His composition was perfect. His timing was perfect. His curiosity was endless," said Capa, who worked for Eisenstaedt in the 1930s. "He really did not set up the subjects. He composed what there was. He was truly a documentary photographer." Eisenstaedt was born in 1898 in the city of Dirschau, Germany, which is now in Poland. He began shooting pictures at 12 when his uncle gave him a camera. After serving in World War I, in which he suffered shrapnel injuries, Eisenstaedt went to work as a salesman in Berlin to help out CALLING THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER GENERAL INFORMATION 721-2700 CLASSIFIED AOS 421-6300 President and Publisher Harry M.

But his true interest lay in art, and he studied paintings in the Berlin museums. When he learned how to make enlargements in the late 1920s, he took up photography seriously. Three days after quitting as a salesman, he began several years of free-lance work for the Associated Press by heading to Stockholm to photograph writer Thomas Mann at the Nobel Prize ceremonies.

A: - 1 Associated Press file photo Alfred Eisenstaedt, right, attends the opening of the Time-Life Photo Center in New York on June 1 . At left is Life photographer Carl Mydans. a picture magazine, he offered a job to Eisenstaedt, who came to the United States in 1935. While working on the prototype of what would become Life, Luce said, his faith that the magazine would succeed was confirmed when he saw Eisenstaedt's photos of a sharecropper family in the South. 1 million pictures Eisenstaedt was one of the four original staff photographers at Life. He eventually took, by his estimate, 1 million pictures. Some of Eisenstaedt's most enduring photographs were of world leaders: a glowering Joseph Goeb-bels flanked by bodyguards, Winston Churchill brandishing his cigar in front of a fish tank. But many of his Life covers focused on lighter subjects, such as celebrities and Americana. "He was a gentle photographer and a very gentle man, and I think that carried through in his work," Chapnick said. He oversaw production of 13 books on his work, including Eisenstaedt: Remembrances, published in 1990. Delivery and Subscription Service .651-4500 Monthly rates Ky.

Mary Ann Glendon of Harvard University will be the first woman to take the leadership role for the Roman Catholic Church at a major international gathering. Glendon, 56, describes herself as an "economic liberal and social conservative. Vatican officials said she shares the general thrust of the pope's policy on women favorable to improving their economic condition, averse to abortion. Glendon was chosen three months ago by the pope with an apparent eye to taking on the U.S. delegation. Women's status decried The Associated Press GENEVA At the present rate of change, it would take women close to half a millennium to occupy the same number of top-level jobs as men, the International Labor Organization (ILO) said today. And in every country in the world, women earn on average one-third less than men for the same work, the U.N. labor agency said in a report released before next month's U.N. World Conference on Women in Beijing. The difference is partly due to the fact that more women work part-time, but mostly it is because they are undervalued as employees, the report said. Court: Extradite Neo-Nazi The Associated Press COPENHAGEN, Denmark Denmark's highest court cleared the way Thursday for an influential American neo-Nazi to be extradited to Germany, where he faces trial and a possible five years in prison. No further appeals are possible. Gary Lauck, 42, of Lincoln, Neb., has been the main supplier of propaganda to German neo-Nazis for Lauck about 20 years, according to German authorities. His NS Kampfruf, or NS Battle Cry, newspaper glorifies Hitler and contains anti-Semitic articles. He heads the National Socialist German Workers' Party-Overseas Organization, which was banned in Germany in 1974. Lauck was arrested at Germany's request in March, when he was in Denmark to attend a convention of neo-Nazis. Ebola epidemic over The Associated Press GENEVA An epidemic of the Ebola virus that killed nearly 250 people in Zaire is over, the World Health Organization announced Thursday. More than 40 days have passed since the last cases were reported, the U.N. agency said. Ebola is transmitted through bodily fluids and secretions. The cause is still unclear. Altogether, 315 people were infected in the epidemic and 244 died. COMING UP An auction today in Skowhe-gan, Maine, will include the largest privately owned collection of Greta Garbo memorabilia, including photos and papers.
