"I'd like to see women's achievements become part of the landscape, instead of an unusual occurrence," King said. "Anytime women do better, it also helps men." -, King is this year's recipient of the Elizabeth Blackwell Award, given to women whose lives exemplify outstanding service. Named for the first woman in America to receive a doctor •of medicine degree, the award is given by Hobart and William Smith Colleges. , ( Cardinal bats at Sunday bail NEW YORK — Now that Cardinal John O'Connor has said his piece to Majop League Baseball, he's turning to Littlfe League. - 3 One month after vowing to boycott professional baseball to protest teams that played on Good Friday, O'Connor said he wants children in church On Sunday, not playing ball; In his weekly column in Catholic New York, headlined "Unthinkable as a Cigar at Breakfast .at Age 10," O'Connor called for Little Lea g° e anfll children's soccer clubs to reschedule their Sunday games so as not to conflict with morning Mass. "How many altar pastors have been told by altar servers, 'I can't serve Sunday; I have a Little League game'? This is the constant erosion, the constant secularization of our culture that I strongly believe to be a serious mistake," he said. Author awarded for originals TULSA, Okla. — Many people may know E.L. Doctorow for the musicals and movies his books have inspired. Some, though, prefer the original. Doctorow, author of such books as "Ragtime," "Billy Bathgate," "Big as Life'' and "Loon Lake," has been awarded the 1998 Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award. "Much of his work has come to public attention through the films they've iri-> spired, not by the books themselves," said James Watson, chairman of the selection; committee. " The award is given by the Tulsa Library; Trust to writers not for any individual! work but for their collective writings. ; Doctorow is an English professor at; New York University. He'll receive his' $20,000 prize on Dec. 4. " From Wire Service Reports T ADVICE Ann, reader once again target 'sleazy sweepstakes' Dear Ann Landers: Can you stand one more letter about sweepstakes? I hope so because too many people are being ripped off. * A few years ago, I received a letter stating that I had won $26,000. I was very excited and waited patiently for the money to arrive. I finally wrote several letters to the sweepstakes company asking about my prize. They all were returned with no forwarding address. After nearly three months of sending registered letters to various addresses, I notified the FBI, which checked out the addresses and notified me that the sweepstakes company had gone out of business. I then received two letters from anoth- ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. er lottery outfit wanting to know why I had not returned the forms to claim a $25,000'prize. I wrote back, stating that I had not received any claim forms. My letter went unanswered. I then received a letter from the same company, saying if I returned the winning number, I would receive $11 million. Several weeks later, I received yet another letter stating that I had the identical winning number as another person in Oklahoma, and the one who sent in his or her claim first would receive $11 million. The second person, they said, would get $50,000. I figured there was something fishy going on, but I sent back my claim form anyway to see what would happen. Guess what? I received an opportunity to buy several more magazines at a reduced rate. I hope you will print this letter and warn your readers about these sleazy offers. — M.S. in Philadelphia Dear Philadelphia: I have printed several letters over the years about the TV TONIGHT sleazy sweepstakes operations, and I hope my readers have paid attention. How two formerly respected and admired people can continue to be spokesmen for one of these operations is beyond me. Dear Ann Landers: You recently printed a letter saying Medicare coverage was extended to cover additional tests as of Jan. 1.1 am on Medicare and need some information. I hope you can help me. Whenever Medicare did not cover something, I always paid for it out of my own pocket. Now I hear that I cannot do this anymore. Is this true? I don't know what to do or who to believe. Will you please explain this to me? — Brooklyn, N.Y. Dear Brooklyn: According to the Medicare Rights Center, this is not true. You always can pay for health care services that Medicare does not pay for. Apparently, the recent budget cuts have confused a lot of seniors on this very subject. For anyone who wants information on! Medicare, send $3 to Medicare Rights; Center, Box RM, 1460 Broadway, New York, N.Y. 10036. Dear Ann Landers: I am aware that, you said, "No more Burma Shave signs,"; but I hope you'll make an exception. Bur-! ma Shave signs were like a beginner's; bible for new drivers back in the mid-'30s.- The signs were targeted more toward! highway safety than shaving, and their 1 ; little jingles sent messages that are just as relevant to the motoring public today, as they were years ago. Here is an old one; I dug up: Famous last words About lights that shine, "If he won't dim his, I won't dim mine." • Thanks, Ann. — Paul in Virginia •; Dear Paul: OK. There you go. I have; complied with your request, but, dear? readers, no more, please.
