Spenser, who has appeared in 11 novels, is a fictional detective in Boston who has become something of a cult figure to readers of Parker's popular mysteries. "There are people, who' just adore Spenser and, by implication, me, whom they want to be Spenser," Parker said in. an interview at his farmhouse near Lynnfield.

"I'm pleased, I'm moved, but I'm puzzled. I've never felt anything the way some people feel about Spenser."

Weather For Wednesday, Dec. 28 Seattle 40 32 Billings t5-10 Fargo, -5 -5 Milwaukee rv Boise FjNew York 30y20 HOVLAND, Minn. (AP) Once a filthy derelict scrambling for food from garbage cans In Chicago, Jimmy Korf now enjoys a new life on the shores of Lake Superior, where he hunts and fishes with his long-lost father. Korf, 21, weighed 90 pounds last spring when he was found on the streets of Chicago. He has since filled out to 160 pounds, his hair is free of lice and he talks of a future.

Korf's transformation and his reunion with his father, 20 years after their family split up, began with an article in the Chicago Sun-Times about that city's street people. Reporter Dirk Johnson interviewed Korf in December. The young man "was really lost," Johnson recalled. "He asked if this was Chicago and wondered if Christmas had gone by." Johnson learned that Korf had been hospitalized for hallucinations before being released to a halfway house in February 1981. After a fight there, Korf left for the streets.

On Jan. 31, the newspaper published Johnson's story about Korf. A picture showed the young man peering from behind a metal fence. About the same time, James Korf Sr. was searching for Jimmy.

The elder Korf decided to look for his son while on his way to Florida from Chicago Bay, near the Canadian border. The elder Korf, 46, admits that he had lived "kind of like a gypsy" in the 20 years since his marriage to Jimmy's mother broke up. Jimmy was the couple's third child. Korf, an artist, stopped in Chicago on the way to Florida and learned that Jimmy had left home and could not be found. A two-month search through family, friends, police and doctors yielded no trace.

And then one day a relative told Korf of the newspaper article. "It was pretty difficult to recognize him," Korf said. "I felt guilty and all that. I was floored." Finally able to contact his son, Korf took him to Minnesota. Although Jimmy suffers from still-undiagnosed learning disabilities, he is doing some reading and 'Says he plans to go back to school someday.

The elder Korf is looking for a trade school for his son. "I don't feel numb anymore," the younger Korf says. "I feeL.more muscles and I don't get so tired. I can meet people every day and I really like everybody a lot. I used to be really paranoid, but now I try to make sense."
