THRU SAT. I Downtown, West Palm Beach PHONE 833-1973 From Post Wirt Srvic4i WASHINGTON - You may never have heard of Foster Chanock, 24, who is an assistant on the staff of President Ford. But he is one of the hottest tickets on the job market. Without making much of an effort, ' he has received three job offers in the month since his boss lost the election to Jimmy Carter, one from a prominent college and the others from telecommunications firms. Next week, a representative of a new Republican senator will come down to the White House to see Chanock - in hopes of luring him to Capitol Hill. And just before Christmas, he will hit New York City for three days, talking with investment banking outfits, telecommunications firms and broadcast companies. Because he is young, bright and well-educated (University of Chicago and London School of Economics), Chanock may have brighter prospects than some of Ford's departing aides. But the fact is that few of them appear to be facing any real problems in getting good jobs. "The response of moderate to total strangers to the Ford White House as the last thing you did has been positive," said Chanock. Michael Duval, another top Ford assistant, added, "There's a great acceptability of people who worked for President Ford." Only a handful of the President's aides have made up their minds on post-White House employment. Army Maj. Robert Barrett, a military aide, will remain with Ford permanently after Jan. 20, serving as the chief of the small staff allowed former presidents. Max Frieders'dorf, the chief congressional liaison for the Ford White House, has accepted a job that capitalizes on his Capitol Hill experience, staff director of the Sen ate Republican Policy Committee. A few at the White House have an idea about what work they want to do, but haven't narrowed things down to a particular job. Counselor John Marsh, for instance, said he expects to take some sort of "law-related" post in Washington. Marsh, a former Democratic congressman from Virginia, may have a political future. He has been mentioned in speculation as a possible candidate for the Senate seat of William Scott, (R-Va.) who is quitting in 1978. Like Marsh, White House counsel Philip Buchen intends to remain in Washington. A lawyer from Grand Rapids, Mich., who was summoned three years ago by his old friend, Ford,. Buchen wants to practice law in Washington. So does Douglas Bennett, the White House personnel chief. "I'm going to stay in Washington and practice law," he said. "I've turned down three or four offers" of nonlaw jobs. On the other hand, people like Richard Cheney and William Seid-man and Michael Duval haven't figured out exactly what they want to do, though they have plenty to choose from. Cheney, the White House chief of staff, is in the enviable position of being wooed. "He's just been sitting back and looking at offers," an associate said. "He hasn't had to seek anything." A onetime investment banking consultant, Cheney is said to be moderately interested in running a small company. But he said he will wait until January before devoting full attention to finding a new job. Seidman, a Grand Rapids pal of Ford who became a White House economics adviser, has been asked to return to his old accounting firm, Seidman & Seidman. But he's not sure that he wants to. For now, he is in no rush to decide. "I've never before really had a chance to stop and look around," he said. Next week, he will look at some companies in the Middle West and on the Pacific Coast. Before taking any permanent job, Seidman plans to act in a few movies as an extra, since his Hollywood-based son offered him this chance after Ford lost. Duval, who was Ford's main coach for the televised campaign debates with Carter, has also been looking across the board - "some corporations, some law practices, investment banking and some entrepreneurial possibilities." For anyone at the White House in a quandary over employment, personnel chief Bennett and scheduling boss Jerry Jones have set up a special "jobs bank." They also brought in a trio of experts from top executive recruitment firms to lecture White House staffers on how to pick jobs in the outside world. Not many, however, appeared to need this kind of assistance. Of all the senior White House aides, press secretary Ron Nessen is the only one who is mentioned by associates as facing difficulties. Several weeks ago, Nessen was complaining widely about the lack of job offers. But Thursday, he said, it is a matter of choosing the right job. "I've got a few things I'm weighing.

LOS ANGELES (UPI) - The mummy that dangled for years in an amusement park fun house is that of a turn-of-the-century outlaw ambushed in Oklahoma in 1912, a filmmaker, whose firm once owned the side-show corpse, said Friday. Dave Friedman, president of Entertainment Ventures Inc., said his firm obtained the petrified bodv of the bandit, Elmer McCurdy, in 1921 as security on a $500 loan that never was repaid. An Oklahoma City sheriff sold it to a carnival operator after McCurdy, who had sworn he never would be taken alive, was tracked down and shot by members of a posse, Freidman said. Carnival sideshows often displayed mummified bodies of gunned-down outlaws in the 1920s and 1930s. Friedman said McCurdy's much-traveled cadaver was retired in the 1940s to a company warehouse in Los Angeles. The mummy remained there until it was sold in 1968 to the Hollywood Wax Museum. The museum later sold it to the amusement park. The mystery surrounding the mummy arose Tuesday when a television crew using the amusement park for a segment of the "Six Million Dollar Man" moved the mummy, covered with red fluorescent paint, and an arm fell off. A technician was about to glue the arm back on when he noticed a bone sticking out. The coroner was called and an examination of the remains determined the victim was shot to death, an autopsy was performed shortly after death, and the body was professionally embalmed. The autopsy was not thorough, however; the copper jacket of a 32-20-caliber bullet was found inside the victim's abdomen. A spokesman for the coroner's office said the body would be examined further and dental imprints will be made in an attempt to make positive identification. The body cannot be identified from fingerprints because it has no fingers. "You just can't paint it red and use it for laughs," he said.
