Nearly clear skies with light winds helped temperatures drop throughout the South. By midnight, frost was scattered across Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi into northern Florida. More than 40 cities tied or broke records for low temperatures on Tuesday. Today, Apalachicola, Fla., had a record low of 39 degrees, one degree colder than the mark set on the same date in 1954. At midnight Tuesday, Tallahassee hit 28 degrees. Georgia peach growers were worried about the freezing weather's effect on the state's crop of an estimated 140 million pounds. Temperatures of 28 degrees or below cart damage peaches in their early stages. "We don't need cold now," said Stephen Myers, a horticulturist with the University of Georgia Extension Service in Athens. In Florida, a forecaster said citrus trees could withstand the cold, but vegetables that are just weeks away from harvesting are vulnerable to frost damage. Do Canadian households have more snowblowers or air conditioners? 50% more air conditioners Faces Fox ad wins 3 awards LOS ANGELES (AP)Michael J. Fox's acrobatic quest for a soft drink to satisfy an attractive apartment neighbor won three awards in an international competition for television and radio commercials. The TV commercial for Diet Pepsi was named sweepstakes winner, world's best live action 60-second English-language Fox commercial and best humorous commercial at Tuesday's 28th International Broadcasting Awards dinner. A series of three commercials for Wine World was the radio sweepstakes winner. It also won the series trophy. The annual competition sponsored by the Hollywood Radio and Television Society attracted more than 5,000 entries from 60 countries. Radio personalities Casey Kasem and Gary Owens were masters of ceremonies at the black-tie presentations at the Century Plaza Hotel attended by an estimated 1,500 advertising and broadcasting executives from around the world. The society also honored Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Betty White and Estelle Getty of NBC's "The Golden Girls" as international "Women of the Year." Gish donates $10,000 to school's film fund BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - Actress Lillian Gish has donated $10,000 to Bowling Green State University to enhance the film theater that bears her family's name. The gift is designated for the Dorothy and Lillian Gish Film Theater endowment fund, which supports activities in the building that commemorates the Gish sisters' contributions to the performing arts. The theater, dedicated in 1976, showcases the art of film by offering regular showings of classic movies. The theater is undergoing a $250,000 renovation of its seating, projection facilities, and gallery. The renovation is scheduled to be completed in May 1989. Ms. Gish also donated $10,000 in 1986 to advance and support the study of film at Bowling Green. Ms. Gish, 91, was born in Ohio and made her acting debut at the turn of the century in the village of Rising Sun, about 20 miles from Bowling Green. Kreskin predicts changes in dinner theaters HAZLETON, Pa. (AP) - The TV personality who calls himself The Amazing Kreskin looked into the future of entertainment and predicted that dinner theaters next season will offer more than just musicals. Bowie Future dinner theaters will resemble the supper clubs of the 1940s with plush decor, outstanding meals and a wider variety of entertainment, Kreskin said Tuesday in a speech to the annual convention of the National Dinner Theater Association. Because television is offering a wider choice of entertainment, "to survive in the next decade, you must offer more than the same old buffet and musical," he said. Musicians fighting drugs with benefit concerts MOSCOW (AP) —Musicians from 10 Western countries including David Bowie, Jennifer Rush and Irish rockers U-2 have agreed to perform along with Soviet musicians in benefit concerts next month to fight drug addiction. The official Novosti Press Agency said other foreign performers scheduled are Level 42, Supertramp, Foreigner, Tangerine Dream and Bon Jovi. Participating Soviet groups are Aquarium, Bravo, Brigade S, Black Coffee and others whose music ranges from heavy metal to traditional rock 'n' roll, Novosti said. The press agency did not give a date, but said the three six-hour concerts will be held in late April at the 30,000-seat Olympic Stadium in Moscow. Sources close to the organizers said the concerts were postponed from this month because of bureaucratic red tape. Former Nixon aide to chair ethics panel COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Jeb Stuart Magruder, a former White House aide who served seven months in prison for his role in the Watergate coverup, says he's well prepared to head the mayor's commission on values and ethics. "I talk about these issues to the Kiwanises and the Rotaries around here, as well as deal with these issues through the church, so I would hope that my background would be helpful," Magruder said Tuesday. After his release from prison in 1976, Magruder entered a seminary and was ordained in 1981 as a Presbyterian minister. Mayor Dana Rinehart appointed the 15-member volunteer commission, on which he also will sit, as part of the city's response to an incident last year in which passersby made off with bags of money that fell from an armored truck on a freeway. Magruder, President Nixon's deputy director of communications at the time of the 1972 Watergate break-in, pleaded guilty to perjury and conspiracy to obstruct justice. Lites MasterCard wants Fustuce Ringgenberg HEMET, Calif. (AP) - The cat's out of the bag. Fustuce Ringgenberg, better known as Fred, proud recipient of a letter offering him a MasterCard from an Ohio bank with a $5,000 limit, hasn't worked a lick in his 2>/ 2 years. Janet Ringgenberg said she was flabbergasted that her cat got a pre-approved invitation. Ms. Ringgenberg said she has been trying unsuccessfully to get a credit card since she was divorced three years ago. "Where's he going to go with it?" she asked. "He doesn't even leave home, let alone leave home without it," she said with a smirk. "It's hilarious. I think it's just a big joke." Fustuce mostly lies on the rug or nestles in the easy chair, she said. His biggest worry is whether he'll get canned tuna. The story probably began a year ago. when Ringgenberg's 18-year-old daughter, Barbara, filled out a questionnaire on toothpaste and breakfast cereal and mailed it in with Fustuce's name on it. "I thought they'd send us some free coupons or something," Ms. Ringgenberg said. Instead, Fustuce's name apparently ended up on a mailing list bought by Credit Card Service Bureau of Springfield, Va., to solicit customers. Betty Rothgeb, administrative assistant to the company's chairman,*said household pets get on the list of prospective customers "from time to time." "There's no danger he (Fustuce) is going to be given a credit card," Ms. Rothgeb said. "Obviously, since the cat has no credit, it would be denied." Rock-N-Roll with "SNOWHIIE" Fri.,Sot,SSun.
