No holiday for Henry Fonda Henry Fonda HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - Actor Henry Fonda was listed in stable condition at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Monday, but doctors still do not know when the 76-year-old actor will be released. Fonda, who had a pacemaker implanted seven years ago, entered the hospital Nov. 17 for observation during a change in prescriptions for chronic heart disease. A hospital spokswoman said late Sunday that the actor's condition was stable with no date set for his release. Fonda hoped to return home for the Thanksgiving holidays, but remained in the hospital so doctors could monitor a change in his medication. He shared Thanksgiving with his daughter, actress Jane Fonda, at his bedside. The actor's hospitilization forced him to miss last week's premiere of his latest film, "On Golden Pond," in which he stars with Katharine Hepburn and his daughter. No longer lookin' for love HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Actress Charlene Tilton, who plays Lucy Ewing on the popular "Dallas" prime-time soap series, and country singer Johnny Lee have announced their engagement.

Sakharov continues protest MOSCOW (UPI) - Rejecting compromise, So, yiet dissident Andrei Sakharov renewed his pledge not to break his hunger strike until Soviet authorities allow his 26-year-old daughter-in-law to go to the United States. Sakharov, 60, the Nobel Peace prize winner who has been banished to Gorky, and his wife Yelena Bonner began their ninth day Monday consuming only mineral water in a desperate attempt to win '.freedom for Lisa Alexeyeva. ;•' In the first letter Miss Alexeyeva has received ;from the nation's most famous human rights advocate, Sakharov thanked U.S. authorities for their vocal support on his behalf and implicitly rebuked West European personalities for their silence. In -June, Miss Alexeyeva was married by proxy to Alexei Semyonov, Mrs. Bonner's son by a previous marriage. Z. The letter, delivered Sunday in Moscow, said ""We are all right. But you see symptoms and indications that are normal for hunger strikers."

There are an estimated 40,000 Hmong living in the U.S. f High court sidesteps controversial sex discrimination issue WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Supreme Court sidestepped an important sex discrimination dispute Monday and let stand a decision that says school boards can keep some boys and girls' athletic teams "separate but equal." The Justices, without comment, rejected an appeal by 4-foot-ll Karen O'Connor, who wanted to play basketball on the sixth grade boys team at a suburban Chicago school. Also Monday, the high court agreed to weigh a migrant worker controversy over whether Puerto Rico can sue to force East Coast apple growers to use Puerto Rican workers instead of Jamaicans. The justices will hear an appeal by the growers, challenging rulings that found Puerto Rico may file suit to ensure its workers — as U.S. citizens — are hired before foreign nationals. Thousands of temporary farm workers are needed by the apple growers to bring in the harvest each fall. Because enough workers are usually not available locally, growers customarily employ both out- of-state and foreign laborers. Returning from a two-week recess, the court also heard oral arguments on a case involving whether a former president, Richard Nixon. In addition, it: • Agreed to try to define, in a Florida marijuana case, how far police may go in using a standardized "profile" of criminal traits as a reason to approach and question a person. • Decided 6-3 that a California Jury used the wrong standard in declaring 11 films obscene and tossed the case back to the state courts. • Announced it would attempt to clear up continuing confusion over the power of states to tax activities on Indian reservations. The Justices agreed to review a New Mexico ruling upholding state taxes levied against a construction company building a school on a Navajo reservation. • Agreed to review an important water rights case from Nebraska about whether a state may prohibit its citizens from transporting ground water to another state for commerical purposes. • Let stand a decision ordering the powerful Bechtel Corp. to abide by an agreement not to participate in a anti-Israel boycott of businesses blacklisted by Arab League nations. • Rejected an effort by two champions of the Old West — officials of the Cowboy Hall of Fame — to stop the metric conversion movement. The pair argued "the country mile and a bushel and a peck would disappear" if the United States adopted the "foreign" measurements. • Turned down an appeal by William "Willie the Rat" Cammisano, a Kansas City, Mo., underworld figure who is serving extra prison time for refusing to testify before Congress. • In a second case involving Congress, refused to' review a ruling that bars a U.S. senator from challenging in court a federal law he argued doesn't let him vote on members of an important economic committee. • Refused to disturb a free speech ruling from California that allows cities to ban the posting of political campaign signs on public property. • Declined to review the malpractice case of a psychiatrist who declared 154 air traffic controllers totally disabled due to Job-related psychological problems. • In another dispute involving controllers, refusing to hear the controllers union's argument that federal courts may not block strikes or other Job actions by federal workers. The sex discrimination controversy dates back to August 1980, when Karen's father, Joseph O'Connor, asked that she be permitted to try out for the boys' basketball team. At the time, she was an 11-year-old sixth grader at MacArthur Junior High School In Prospect Heights, HI. The school is a part of an athletic association that requires separate teams for boys and girls in contact sports, including basketball. By October 1980, the Prospect Heights Board of Education denied her father's request and suggested she try out for the girls' team. Represented by her parents, Karen filed suit in- federal court. Although a district Judge ruled in her favor, the school board convinced the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago to block that ruling,. *>WOOD Tensions mounting in Poland fP/inHmiA/l fVftm Paaa 1^ ^^ (Continued from Page tars with Wagner in the television series "Hart to Hart," sobbed, "There's nothing I can say. It's Just not fair." Miss Powers, whose close friend William Holden died last week, said, "It can't be a loving God to do this. We've known each other since we were children. I can't believe it. And those poor little children of hers!" Miss Wood, in her second marriage to Wagner, the co-star of TV's "Hart to Hart," was born Natasha Gurdin in San Francisco July 20, 1938, one of three daughters of Nicholas and Marci Gurdin. Her father was an architect who turned to stage designing and • her mother was a ballet dancer. The family moved to Santa Rosa when she was 4, and shortly after a movie company visited the city to film "The Happy Land." Natalie and her mother were hired as extras. Director Irvin Pichel remembered the girl two years later when he was trying to cast the part of an orphan in "Tomorrow is Forever." After a screen test she was signed and her named changed to Natalie Wood. In 1947, she was named "the most talented Juvenile motion star of the year," by Parents Magazine. She was Child Star of the Year in 1950, so judged by the Children's Day National Council of New York. Her portrayal as the child Susan in the classic "Miracle on 34th Street," brought a second box office Blue Ribbon Award. She received starring roles in several major films, including "Marjorie Momingstar," "Cash McCall," "West Side Story," "Gypsy," "The Great Race," and "Inside Daisy Clover."

There is a tendency for people to live from one crisis to another. "Let's say the transmission is going out in your car and you have a thousand and one things to do at work. "Are you going to let that stop you from enjoying a beautiful sunset. It sounds hokey, but most often what we need is to stop and smell the roses, to take time for ourselves." All this philosophy sounds good on paper, Crow admits, but is hard to put into practice. Still, it's worth having. "It's the kind of life that you see in the clerk who smiles all the time and WARSAW, Poland (UPI) - The emergency powers the Communist Party is demanding that parliament provide for the government may include a ban not only on strikes, but also on all but religious meetings as well as restrictions on travel, the government news agency Interpress said Monday. The Communist Party backed its call for such measures with publication in its official newspaper of a list of strikes and other protests this month despite Solidarity-state talks and a summit of church, party and Solidarity leaders. "Anarchy is spreading," the Communist Party newspaper Trybuna Ludusaid. Strikes involving more than 200,000 fanners, students and oil workers persisted around the country and truckloads of police surrounded a firefighters academy in Warsaw in where 300 students were on a sit-in. The Solidarity inner national presi- dium held an emergency meeting to discuss the national situation and scheduled a meeting Thursday of all regional union branch leaders ahead of a full national commission session next week. Prime Minister Wojiech JaruzeUdd threatened martial law if the strikes are not diminished. ' "The right to strike has been permanently abused," Jaruzelski told a Central Committee meeting. "The party's' answer has to be and is proportionate to the situation." Kansans get taste of snow, rainfall Kansas got a little wet around the edges late Sunday and early Monday. The moisture ranged from light snow in extreme Northwest Kansas to rain throughout most of North-Central and Northwest Kansas. Snowfall in Northwest Kansas ended early Monday morning, prompting National' Weather Service forecasters to cancel a traveler's advisory for the extreme Northwest corner of the state. But there's still a possibility of light snow or snow flurries in parts of North- Central Kansas late Monday afternoon and evening as colder temperatures and northerly winds move into the area. Goodland, which received .84 of an inch of rain before snow started falling about 3 a.m., finished with about two inches of snow. Goodland, however, was the only major reporting station with measurable snowfall. Winds over North-Central Kansas, mostly southerly during the morning, were expected to switch to the north- HOKEY in the postman. It's people who have evaluated what makes their lives worth living, and they go on and live it." Crow is the author of "Wind Chimes," a book of poetry, and "Biofeedback," a book he has co-authored with a K -State professor. "There is something to be said for the people who are laid-back and mellow," he said. "The people who come to see me traditionally are very tense and nervous. Typically, they are 15 to 20 minutes early for an appointment. I usually tell these people to try and come five minutes or even 10 minutes late sometimes — and not get uptight when a train stops them and they have to sit at the tracks for 10 minutes." This process, Crow says, has taken him a long time to achieve. west during the day, bolstering the area's chances for snowfall. Northwest winds already were reported at Russell by noon. 1-70 from the Colorado line east to the Oakley area was reported slushy in spots with other roads in Northwest Kansas wet but not hazardous, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. Overnight rainfall throughout the area ranged up to 1.24 inches near Esbon in North-Central Kansas by 6 a.m. Monday. Salina recorded only .34 of an inch at the same time, but raised its total to .64 by noon. * -tr -tt The brunt of the winter storm system was hitting Colorado and Nebraska. The Colorado Highway Patrol reported heavy snow in many mountain passes, including Wolf Creek Pass in the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado where 15 inches of snow had fallen during the past 24 hours. Grover, in Northeastern Colorado, reported three foot drifts being kicked up by high winds which were causing drifting snow and ground blizzards. "I finally have gotten to the point where I can say I like myself," he said. "Biofeedback has worked for me, and I know it has worked for others. It just feels good not always to have the tension; and when I do, I've learned how to cope." Still, he finds it difficult to talk about his accomplishments. He has coached Little League baseball, "although I'm not sure the team will claim me now." And he has taught Sunday School at Sunset Presbyterian, "although I know my minister will read that and ask himself, 'When was this?'" He also is a precinct committeeman. "I'm involved in a lot of one-shot things. It all goes back to that philosophy that it's the quality, not the quantity," he said. A winter storm warning was in effect for northeast and south-central Nebraska Monday afternoon and evening with, a winter storm watch in th'e southeast A traveler's advisory also was posted for the west-central section. Heavy snows were predicted in the northeast and south-central sections. Areo Rainfall (Selected cities) (24-Hours to 6 a.m. Monday) Wilson Lake 86 Woodrufl(3SW) 64 Goodland 84 Atwood 83-.

The Salina Journal Area 4-H'ers win top scholarships Three Salina area 4-H'ers are among nine Kansana who have been awarded $8,000 in scholarships at the 60th National 4-H Congress which opened Sunday in Chicago, m. Matthew Wineinger, 15, Marion, and Marvin Fehlman, 19, Wakefield, were awarded $1,000 national scholarships. Cathryn Gorrell, 19, Culver, earned a $750 regional scholarship. Wineinger, a Kansas 4-H Project Award winner in beef, earned his award from the American Simmental Association and the Friends of the National 4-H Council. A sophomore at Marion High School, Wineinger uses a computer to analyze his 37-head beef herd's performance. He also has purchased a half-interest in a 160-acre native grass pasture in the Flint Hills area to provide grazing for his herd. The keystone of his herd is an orphan baby heifer calf offered to him by the Wetland Angus Ranch. "This registered Angus heifer .was raised by me, showed at many shows, served as the foundation of my current beef cow herd and is still active in production in my herd today," Wineinger, the son of Mr. and Mrs, Earl Wineinger, said. Fehlman, winner of an agricultural scholarship, received his award from the International Harvester Co., sponsor of the 4-H agricultural program. The Clay County youth's swine and beef herds are now paying his way through Kansas State University where he is a sophomore. He began raiting swine in 1977 and, despite a battle with swine diseases, one of his pigs finished 10th in the 1981 Kansas Junior Livestock Show. Fehlman, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Fe.hlman, was a member of the * t Kansas Livestock Team which competed at the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Ky. Gorrell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Gorrell, has excelled in the 4-H horse program and earned her scholarship from the Santa Fe Railway System. The Ottawa County girl learned patience from training hones in her 4-H project and has been caring for three mares and a stallion owned by a local man. "I've read almost every article I could find on barrel racing," she said. Gorrell was a member of of the 1980 State Youth Conference planning cora- mttttee and has been enrolled In a number of project! that ranged from clothing to food-nutrition. She is a sophomore at Cloud County Community College, Concordia, and plans a career as an elementary school teacher.
