' 'This is an all-time first for me," Cash told his audience in the Corn Palace. "It's the first time I've done a show with the hiccups." Cash, who alsofcad a recent Cash bout with the flu, sipped water during Sunday afternoon's performance. He even left the stage for a short time to try unsuccessfully to get rid of his hiccups. He and his wife, June Carter Cash, performed to the audience of 2,000 for about two hours. Leader says movies help anti-apartheid NEW YORK (AP) - The Rev. Allan Boesak, an anti-apartheid leader, says productions such as the movie "Cry Freedom" and the musical "Sarafina" play important roles in publicizing the struggle of blacks in his native South Africa. "You cannot reach everybody by making a speech, or even by saying something on television," Boesak Boesak said in an interview in April's Essence magazine. "Some other people are more convinced by reading a book, by meeting someone face to face, by seeing a play, by seeing a movie. I believe that if you get all these different audiences, and you speak to them in a medium that they can understand, then so much the better." Boesak, 41, is a minister in the Dutch Reformed Church and president of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches. Under South Africa's racially restrictive laws, which reserve most power for the white minority, he is considered of mixed race. The magazine said writer and former Black Panther leader Elaine Brown interviewed Boesak when he and his wife, Dorothy, and four children were in Los Angeles recently. Singing mother to record album next month WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. (AP) - Having a newborn baby won't keep three-time Grammy-winner Deniece Williams from the recording studio, her publicist says. Miss Williams, 35, who gave birth Saturday, is planning to record an album next month, press agent Bob Angelotti says. "Mother and child are doing fine" but will remain in the hospital for several days, he said. Forrest Matthew Westering, who weighed 9 pounds, Bounces at birth, is the first child for the singer and her husband, Brad Westering, who were married in 1986. Miss Williams has two children from a previous marriage. Day's condition upgraded from critical to serious SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - Doctors removed singer Dennis Day from the critical list after he responded to treatment for a head injury he suffered last week in a fall at home. His condition was upgraded to serious Monday after surgery Saturday relieved swelling of the brain, said Armen Markarian, spokesman for St. John's Hospital. Day, 71, was diagnosed last July as suffering from amyotropic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease, a progressive nerve disorder that causes loss of muscle control. Day became famous by performing with comedian Jack Benny starting in 1939. An accomplished Irish tenor, Day also was known for playing the innocent foil to Benny's irascible character on television and radio. Lites Teacher sets new record with 32,770 push-ups JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Whitey Bloom knows about life's ups and downs, and ups and downs, and ups and downs. Bloom, a stocky junior high school teacher, knocked off 32,770 push-ups in 24 hours during the weekend, unofficially breaking by 197 the Guinness Book of World Records' mark for the most push-ups in a single day. With about 60 friends and supporters cheering him on, Bloom broke the record shortly after noon Sunday. He plans to mail a log book and other papers to Guinness for official confirmation. Bloom said he slept about 20 minutes during the 24 hours. Support from friends was essential. "The last couple of hours, they were really cheering me on," he said Monday. "I was just dogged tired and I'm not sure I would have made it without them." Bloom trained for months with a daily regimen of several thousand push-ups. In a practice session around Christmas, he did 16,000 push-ups in about seven hours, "just to get a feel for it." Now he just feels sore. "The best thing about it is when I woke up this morning, I didn't feel obligated to do my usual 1,000," he said. Largest tamed gorilla is adjusting well GULF BREEZE, Fla. (AP) - Colossus, a 502-pound ape reputed to be the largest lowland gorilla in captivity, was adjusting well to his new home in a private zoo after moving from New Hampshire, his keepers said. "He's doing wonderfully," said Pat Quinn, director of The Zoo. "He's eating well, vocalizing, a lot of chest pounding and stomping on his bed." The 20-year-old gorilla was moved Sunday night from Hudson, N.H., where he had been purchased from Benson's Animal Park when it went out of business. The ape was flown on a DC-3 piloted by Stan Brock of the "Wild Kingdom" television show to Pensacola and then trucked to The Zoo on Monday. Moving pads were put around and inside Colossus' packing crate to keep him warm during the trip, Quinn said. He developed an attachment for the blankets, taking a pair with him to his new home in two adjoining cages, or bedrooms as Quinn prefers to call them. "He's got those blankets with him all the time," Quinn said, adding that no one has volunteered to try to take them away. "We don't short sheet gorillas," he joked.
