D4 Akron Bt-won Journal VVe.1nesd.iy, December 23, 1981 KSU professor plans By Barbara SfheehUT Beacon Journal s aff writer A Kent State University professor who left Poland last weekend will not cancel her plans to return after the holidays. "We love the country and the people. Besides, I have a one-year contract," said Jacquelyn Y. Silson, who is teaching political science at the University of Warsaw as part of Kent State's exchange program in Poland. Mrs. Silson, her architect-husband, Kevin, and the couple's 3-year-old son, John, have been in Warsaw since fall. They flew to London last weekend not for safety reasons, but for a long-planned vacation. The family expects to return to Poland Jan. 4. "There is no physical danger there for us. Our neighbors look out for us," Mrs. Silson said in a telephone interview from her London hotel. ALTHOUGH she said life has not changed dramatically for the American family, the mood in Warsaw is somber under martial law.

They try to help you, to answer your questions.' KSU professor Jacquelyn Y. Silson "Most people feel that the government will destroy what was achieved. They see little that they can do," said the Kent State professor, who is assigned to teach Poles about government and equal opportunity in the United States. Warsaw's university has had few disruptions. Except for sporadic student strikes and some minor police incidents, classes have gone on as usual, she said.. But there are signs of the government crackdown on the centuries-old campus. Several faculty members have been arrested, including some outspoken supporters of the Solidarity labor movement. There is no pattern to the campus arrests. Mrs. Silson said several professors not involved in politics have been jailed. Carr Rose, 57, of Akron. Tuesday. Hopkins funeral home.

In Front ggiiiiii 6 II 1 Outside the university, soldiers patrol the streets. But even there, the Silsons feel no danger. "They are not hostile, not abrasive," Mrs. Silson said. "They try to help you, to answer your questions." HER AMERICAN accent apparently is a factor. The Poles want to guarantee the safety of foreigners, she said, even to the point of warning Americans to avoid certain neighborhoods targeted for mass protests. Poland's well-publicized food shortage prompted the Silsons to fill their suitcases with canned goods and staples before leaving the United States. Their fears of going hungry were unfounded. There was plenty of flour and sugar. And since the military takeover, items that Ex-soldier organizes Dozier prayer service For an old comrade abducted by a terrorist group in Italy, "there's nothing that can be done but get down on your knees and pray." That is why Charles E. Jenney, who served with Brig. Gen. James L. Dozier in Germany about 20 years ago, is helping organize a local prayer service for Dozier, who was kidnapped by the Red Brigades from his home in Italy last Thursday. The non-denominational service, set for noon Saturday at the Lockwood United Methodist Church, 3680 Manchester Road,' Coventry Township, is to coincide with similar services in Buffalo and in Corvallis, Ore., which are being organized by former military men who served with Dozier. The Rev. Robert Snyder will officiate locally. JENNEY met Dozier at Fort Meade, Md., where they were lieutenants.

Mrs. Silson was thankful to have packed cans of tuna fish and jars of peanut butter goods that are impossible to find in Poland. "Peanut butter is pretty important when you have a 3-year-old," she said. Most urban Poles, fearing a collapse of the economy, have stockpiled enough food to last one to two months. No one will starve for a while, according to the Kent teacher. New air service proposed for Akron-Canton Airport By Peter Phlpps Beacon Journal staff writer A Cincinnati-area businessman wants to start another full-sized jet airline service this spring, this one providing Akron-Canton Airport connections with Chicago, receiving clerk for B & W in Bar-berton, said he had mixed emotions. "I was surprised and happy that he'd attained that rank and I was shocked over what happened." While in training at Fort Meade, Jenney got the impression that Dozier was "a little sharper than the rest of the officers in the company." "He was strictly a military man," Jenney said. Jenney lost touch with Dozier after they served 18 months in Europe together. And he had only casual contacts with Jack Harig over the last 20 years, even though both live in Barberton. Harig also attended the officer training school with Dozier at Fort Meade. Jenney called Harig after seeing his name Sunday in a Beacon Journal story about Dozier. The two men are trying to locate area residents who were stationed at Fort Meade in the 2nd and 3rd Armored Calvary regiments from 1956 through 1960.

But their suitcases were searched for film and stories that might tell the world of Poland's turmoil. Kent State officials heard from Mrs. Silson Monday. Provost Michael Schwartz said administrators have not decided if she should return to Ohio. "We really don't want to order her home," he said. "She seems quite comfortable with the idea of going back." The Silsons will visit Paris before returning to Poland. If New York and Youngstown. William Young, president of Best Airlines, said he is looking to buy planes for the flights. Although Young is not experienced in the airline business, he said he has hired an experienced man as operations manager for the company, which was incorporated just last month. The company filed a request Wednesday with the Civil Aeronautics Board for permission to start the flights in May. Airport director Fred Krum said he understands Young intends to Qy DC-9s out of the airport, which in recent years has seen all but United airliners give way to smaller commuter planes. "But I don't know how real this can be we'll have to see," Krum said. YOUNG SAID his company plans to fill a market left empty by the major air carriers after the airline industry was deregulated in 1978. Since deregulation, United Airlines has cut Akron-Canton service from 14 to four flights a day and Eastern Airlines has eliminated service. "We have been looking for markets with good population that are underserved by the major carriers," Young said from his Florence, Ky., office. "When Akron, Canton and Clinton wife charged in husband's murder By Tom Ryan Beacon Journal staff writer A 29-year-old woman has been charged with murder in the Monday night stabbing, death of her husband in their home at 7591 Fifth Ave., Clinton. Summit County sheriff's detectives said Sheila Hiltabidel allegedly stabbed her husband, Lawrence, once in the chest. Hiltabidel, 24, died at Barber-ton Citizens Hospital at 11:52 p.m., about two hours later. "We don't know for sure what led up to the stabbing," said detective Roy E. Mosley. "We have only bits of the story now and we are working on the details." Mosley said the Hiltabidels reportedly went with his father and a brother to the Golden Spike, a Clinton bar, for drinks and to play some electronic games Monday. The father reportedly dropped the couple off at their home about 9:45 p.m., but Hiltabidel went out again, alone, returning shortly before 10 p.m. DEPUTIES were called by a neighbor after Hiltabidel staggered to the neighbor's house. Clinton firefighters said he was conscious on the way to the hospital and several times asked them to open the doors because he could not breathe. Mrs. Hiltabidel was arraigned Tuesday in Barberton Municipal Court. She was being held in Summit County Jail in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond. The couple and her three children, Ronald, 9, Tammy, 8, and Charity, 5, moved to Clinton about three months ago from the Johnson Corners area of Barberton. Both were unemployed and she was receiving welfare payments. The children were not at home when Hiltabidel was stabbed. They are being cared for by Mrs. Hiltabidel's parents in Norton. The Hiltabidels had recently appealed to a Clinton citizens committee organized to help needy families in the village. "I interviewed the family at their home and they seemed to get along well," said committee chairman Ned Ledbetter. "The children were beautiful. "We gave them enough groceries to last about two weeks, a Christmas tree, decorations and three gifts for each of the children. "That little one (Charity) was a heart-stealer. When we took in the groceries, she said she'd rather have a Christmas tree than something to eat. "That did it. We got some help Poland flights from Paris to Warsaw are halted, they will try to find another route. The freedom to come and go makes them observers, not participants, in a bleak chapter of Polish history. "I don't think you can ever feel like you're going through it when you have an American passport and can leave when you want," Mrs. Silson said. "But when you see your friends, you suffer. Things can never be the same." Youngstown are put together, it's a bigger market than Cincinnati." Young said he plans to start two non-stop flights a day from Akron-Canton to Chicago and two flights a day to New York, with a stop in Youngstown. If that service succeeds, Young said, he will consider starting service to Atlanta and Washington or Philadelphia. Although Young is a newcomer in the air travel business, he has operated a successful motel chain, Krum said. Young's Columbia Sussex Co. has 23 motels in the Midwest. A CURRENT Akron-Canton carrier, Christman Air System, announced Thursday that it will upgrade commuter service Jan. 1. Christman officials said the company can all but guarantee that Pittsburgh passengers will fly on a 14-seat, jet-prop plane instead of eight-seat, piston-prop planes. The company showed off its new $1.4 million Beech jet prop plane to newsmen and travel agents Thursday. On Jan. 1, Akron-Canton passengers also will be able to get connection flights to Buffalo and Washington in addition to the current service to Parkersburg and Charleston, W. Va. from people like Marvin Sullivan, who donated a tree and the Firemen's Association, which wrote a $50 check." LEDBETTER was one of the firefighters who responded with the emergency medical team to the Hiltabidels' home. "Everyone in the community is sick about this," Ledbetter said. "We don't know what happened, really, but we are very concerned about what is going to happen to those kids." Collier back as budget chief Associated Press COLUMBUS Gov. James A. Rhodes shuffled his Cabinet officers Tuesday, returning Howard L. Collier to his old post as budget director. The resignation last week of Philip S. Hamilton as administrative services director triggered the changes, which take effect Jan. 1. William D. Keip, 36, director of the office of budget and management, will succeed Hamilton, 52, who is going into private business. Collier, 49, will take a year's leave of absence as vice president for finance at the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo to serve as budget director for the remainder of Rhodes' term. In 1982, apple replaces globe Associated Press NEW YORK The lighted globe that traditionally descends a mast above Times Square to' mark the start of the new year has been remade in the image of a big apple, New York's symbol of sweetness and temptation. The owner of the building at No. 1 Times Square, TSNY Realty Corp., had said that if no one agreed to pay for the cost of sliding the lighted globe down a mast on the building, the traditional event would not take place. Radio station WMCA paid more than $90,000 to cover the labor and electricity costs, and the cost of redoing the traditional globe in the form of a 6-foot-tall apple. The apple was built by Jonathan Starr, the grandson of Jacob Starr, who built the first globe in 1907. r
