2A ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1995 PEOPLE Compiled by Harry Levins Of the Post-Dispatch Staff The Baby Boomlet: Rocker JON BON JOVI has chilled out about his second shot at fatherhood. With his wife, Dorothea, due to deliver Sunday, he tells USA Today: "First one, I had, like Learjets waiting on the runways. This one, it's like, 'Oh, we're having a baby, right?' " Actress LINDA PURL, 39, gave birth Feb. 6 to a son with an unending name: Lucius Jackson Arthur Plantagenet Cary. Her husband is screenwriter Alexander Cary. DARREN E. BURROWS, 29 you know him as lovable oddball Ed Chigliak on "Northern Exposure" is a first-time father. His wife, Melinda Delgado, 30, gave birth to William Franklin on Dec. 29. Marriage seems to have gone stale for WILL SMITH, TV's "Fresh Prince of Bel Air." His wife, Sheree, has filed for divorce. The Smiths, both 26, have a 2-year-old son. Tidbits from Broadway: BETTY BUCKLEY, late of "Eight Is Enough," will be Broadway's next Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Sunset Boulevard." The actress will replace GLENN CLOSE on July 4, the day after Buckley's 47th birthday. . JULIE ANDREWS, 59, last opened on Broadway in 1960, in "Camelot." Now, she's returning in the stage-musical version of "Victor-Victoria," which husband BLAKE EDWARDS made as a movie in 1982. Down in Montgomery, Ala., a committee is raising money to make a memorial out of the boyhood home of singer NAT "KING" COLE. He was born in Montgomery in 1919 and lived there until age 7, when his family moved to Chicago. Cole died 30 years ago this week. Slap the name TOM CLANCY on a book, and it sells even if Clancy didn't write it. The author and Steve Pieczenik "created" the plot and characters for a new best-seller, "Tom Clancy's Op-Center," leaving the writing to somebody named Jeff Rovin. Clancy defends his approach as honest. "George Lucas didn't write all the 'Star Wars' books," he says. "Gene Roddenberry didn't write all the 'Star Trek' books." Rolling Stone magazine asked country's WILLIE NELSON who could party the hardest, KRIS KRIS-TOFFERSON or WAYLON JENNINGS. His answer: "Well, I wish you hadn't said Kris. I can out-party Waylon but Kris, he makes it a religion." Somebody asked an aide to ROSEANNE at her wedding this week to Ben Thomas why the guest list included her first husband, Bill Pentland. The answer: "He's the father of her children." So why did it omit second husband TOM ARNOLD? "He's , and you can quote me on that." ON THIS DAY On Feb. 17, 1964, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its "one-man, one-vote" decision on congressional districts.

City Fourth-Grader Sets Out To Meet Her Idol By Tom Uhlenbrock Of the Post-Dispatch Staff Thelma Hilliard met a milestone in American history and walked away with a kiss and a lipstick smudge on her cheek. The fourth-graders in Thelma's class at Jackson Park School in University City were asked to write essays about the person they admired most. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a popular subject. So was Rosa Parks. Thelma chose Shirley Chisholm, and drew a portrait of her for extra credit. "She was the first black lady of Congress," Thelma explained, Chisholm, who in 1972 also became the first black woman to run for president, was speaking Thursday night at Webster University. A meeting was arranged. Thelma squirmed in a chair in Sun-nen Lounge, giggling with her parents, Lawrence and June Hilliard. But she immediately recognized the gray-haired woman who strolled by. "That's her," she said, and jumped up to greet the object of her admiration. The 9-year-old was nearly as big as the former New York congresswom-an, who weighed 98 pounds when elected to the House of Representatives in 1968. "I'm a great big fat thing of 115 now," smiled Chisholm. Chisholm marveled at Thelma's artwork and said it would take a prominent place among portraits given her by children throughout the country. "A friend helped me with the glasses," said Thelma. Although she's been out of Congress more than a decade, Chisholm noted that her talks still attract audiences. ., f. ?

'A, Wendi FitzgeraldPost-Dispatch Shirley Chisholm expresses her delight with a portrait painted for her by Thelma Hilliard, 9, of Jackson Park School in University City. The two met Thursday at Webster University. "I tell them education is the key to everything," she said. "They shouldn't pay attention to doomsday criers. Stand firm and persist, and they'll succeed." Chisholm lost her smile when asked how the current Congress was faring. "Don't broach that subject," she said. "There's a real retrogression of the civil rights movement going on in America." But her graciousness returned when yet another question was asked, and her answer was met with disbelief. "I don't get overly excited when people say I was the first black woman to be in Congress," she said. "But I do get excited when I tell them I'm 70, and they say I look 50." After a round of picture-taking, the two walked their separate ways. "I've met a special person," said Thelma. mw)!wiwe.4iMl BULLETIN BOARD AWARDS The Walbridge Caring Communities Program will have its fifth annual awards banquet Feb. 25 at the Holiday Inn-Convention Center.
