Curtis was unsuccessful in seeking to regain a seat in Congress in 1968, 1970 and 1972. Drew Eberson, designed, renovated movie theaters Drew Eberson, an architect who designed and renovated many motion-picture theaters in 1he United States and abroad, has died of pneumonia at a convalescent center in Bloomficld, Conn. He was 85 and lived in Stamford, Conn. Mr. Eberson was the son of John Eberson, one of the country's most influential theater architects who earned the nickname "Opera House John" at the beginning of the century by designing numerous small-town auditoriums. The two Ebersons practiced in partnership from 1 926 until the father's death in 1 954. In later years, Mr. Eberson renovated many of the playhouses originally designed by his father. Mr. Eberson was a native of Hamilton, Ohio. He received his architectural degree from the University of Pennsylvania. In World War II as a colonel in the Army Corps of Engineers, he was chief of operations in construction in the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations. He also supervised the design and construction of several military projects in upstate New York. Mr. Eberson, who died Saturday, is survived by his wife, Peggy; a stepdaughter, Suzanne Callahan, of Old Greenwich, a sister, Elsa Kyle, of Marco Island, and a stepgrandson. Compiled from The Associated Press and The New York Times. BARNSTEAD, N.H. Sarah Caldwell, the force behind New Hampshire's living-will law that allows a doctor to abandon extraordinary measures to keep a terminally ill person alive, has died. She was 42. Ms. Caldwell suffered from multiple sclerosis. Officials are awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause of her death last week. She learned she had multiple sclerosis in 1982. Her son, Mark Caldwell, said the news devastated her for a while, but she bounced back and was particularly inspired to work on winning passage of the living-will legislation. In 1983 and 1985, the state House and Senate passed legislation to let people die if their disease progressed to a stage requiring machines to keep them alive. But then-Gov. John Sununu vetoed it both times. Ms. Caldwell counted votes from her wheelchair as the state Senate in 1985 overrode Sununu's second veto. She wept when the tally was read, and senators hugged her. Joseph Corr, cartoonist and advertising executive Joseph E. Corr an advertising executive, former magazine publisher and cartoonist, has died of heart failure at New York Hospital.

He was an advertising manager and promotion director for Life magazine, then in 1978 became vice president of marketing for the spirits group of Heublein Inc. Mr. Corr was publisher of Vanity Deaths Elsewhere Fair magazine from August 1981 until December 1983. At his death Saturday, he was president and chief executive officer of Corr and Till an advertising agency in Manhattan. He was also a cartoonist, whose work appeared in Cosmopolitan and other publications. Mr. Corr served as a paratrooper in World War II and the Korean War and was awarded a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. He is survived by a daughter, Kathleen Lee Corr; a son, David Lawton Corr, both of Manhattan; a sister, Kathleen Lee Sample of Stamford, two brothers, Fitzhugh Lee Corr of Cincinnati and Christopher Joseph Corr of Phoenix; and a grandson. L. Curtis, congressman from Massachusetts BOSTON Laurence Curtis, a longtime Republican politician who held several state posts and was elected to Congress for five terms, has died at age 95. The graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School joined the Naval Reserve Flying Corps when World War I started and lost a leg in a flight-training accident. He served one term as state treasurer, three terms as state senator, two as state representative and two as Boston city councilor. From 1953 to 1962, he served in Congress. Rep. Curtis, who died Tuesday, was on the House Judiciary and the Foreign Affairs committees. In 1962, he lost the Republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat to George Lodge, who went on to lose Kemp wants all top HUD aides barred from post-job lobbying Republic Wire Services WASHINGTON Housing and Urban Development Secretary Jack Kemp, in a bid to strengthen ethics at his scandal-plagued agency, told a House panel Wednesday that he wants all top-level employees to be barred from lobbying HUD after they leave their jobs. In another development, federal officials and independent auditors say a coinsurance program at the Federal Housing Administration has accumulated losses of $1 billion, twice as much as government auditors originally had thought, The New York Times reports today. That estimate of co-insurance losses alone would make the FHA, which insures mortgages totaling $275 billion, the most troubled segment of HUD. Meanwhile, Rep. Tom Lantos, chairman of the House Government Operations subcommittee, which has held several hearings on the emerging scandal, said he will call U.S. trade representative Carla Hills to testify about her lobbying on behalf of a mortgage concern and a real-estate developer. double that figure. "Coinsurance" is HUD terminology for a program under which private lenders assume about 20 percent of the risk of insuring a mortgage while the government assumes responsibility for the remaining 80 percent. Introduced in 1983, it was based on an assumption that the private lenders could oversee most of the underwriting process, credit checks and appraisals without government supervision. But auditors hired by the government have concluded that this approach led to enormous losses. The audit and the FBI's interest in Demery seem to have opened a major new front in the HUD investigations being carried out by the Justice Department, congressional committees and Kemp, The Times said. Hills also has had ties with DRG Funding, a Washington-based mortgage concern that has defaulted on nearly $500 million in loans largely insured by HUD. While in private legal practice, she lobbied then-HUD Secretary Pierce and his aides on behalf of DRG and a separate realty firm seeking federal assistance on Florida housing projects. be. held in Pima County Superior Court for Rendon, who was convicted in 1984 and sentenced to 15 years in prison because he had two previous convictions. Rendon's attorney, Frank Leon of Tucson, said Wednesday that he was pleased with the decision and indicated it could enable dozens of other people convicted of first-degree burglary because they stole a weapon to seek new trials. In addition, the FBI has expanded an inquiry into a private coinsurer, DRG Funding, to include a probe of the company's ties with Thomas T. Demery, assistant secretary for housing from 1986 to 1988. Kemp, appearing before the Housing, Banking and Urban Affairs subcommittee, said he has asked the Office of Government Ethics to restrict post-employment lobbying by all of HUD's 140 top employees. Currently, Kemp said, about 58 of the 140 positions are exempt from those restrictions exemptions requested by his controversial predecessor, Samuel Pierce. Several top Reagan administration officials have acknowledged lobbying HUD after leaving the agency to win approval for lucrative housing subsidies or other projects. The influence-peddling scheme, which also involved several well-connected GOP political consultants, is one of several HUD scandals. On Capitol Hill on Tuesday, Kemp estimated that waste, fraud and mismanagement in HUD have cost taxpayers $2 billion. But the losses in the FHA coinsurance program could house in south Tucson in which he did not carry a weapon or threaten his victims with the stolen guns. Burglars in situations such as Rendon's should be convicted of second-degree burglary, the justices said in an opinion issued Tuesday. First-degree burglary carries a sentence of 514 to 14 years in prison, while second-degree burglary carries a sentence of 3.7 to 10 years in prison.
