December 14, 1976 PAGE 2 HAYS DAILY NEWS Roy Would Take HEW Post TOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) — Former 2nd District Congressman Dr. Bill Roy says he has been contacted informally by several members of President-elect Jimmy Carter's staff about a possible appointment to a position in the new administration. "My interest is only in one position in that department (Health, Education and Welfare) and that's the secretary- ship," Hoy said. "But there are lots of people qualified for the job and 1 don't place any great hope that I'll be the one to get it." Roy said he has had no official contact with the Carter administration. "T'vc had unofficial, or maybe you could call them informal contacts," he said. "But I can't evaluate those contacts now. "I'd rather not go into those conversations," he said. Roy said the contacts have been made over a period of time. "Until 1 hear from one of about three people, I don't place great emotional stock in these contacts," Roy said, _ indicating Carter was one of' three formal contacts. He would not name the other two. "It's just a judgment on my part that those two people are the ones working the most closely with Carter," Roy said. "I'm not interested in any other position. It would have to be a really unusual contract for me to take any other position, and,I don't see that now because I prefer to stay in Kansas." Roy, a lawyer and a doctor, is currently director of medical education at St. Francis Hospital. The former congressman, who lost a Senate bid to Sen. Robert Dole, R-Kan., said he received several telephone calls Monday from persons outside the Carter camp offering to support him as an assistant HEW secretary. But Roy said he advised them he would not be interested in assistant positions. Roy said he does not think Carter has decided yet who will be HEW secretary. "I've talked to people who are so well-informed they would have known if he'd chosen anyone," Roy said.

(UPI) Denise Guseman and her friends heard the shots as they drove along a crowded downtown street and thought a bank robbery was in progress. Then" one of the bullets hit Miss Guseman in the neck.

Michael Soles, 19, has pleaded innocent by reason of insanity to the charges. Miss Guseman testified that she, her sister Penny and two friends were riding in a car on Douglas Avenue, in front of the Holiday Inn Plaza, the highest building in Kansas. The sniper fired from a balcony on the building's 24th floor. "We heard a few shots, and someone said, 'Someone must be robbing the banK,'" Miss Guseman testified. "I was driving around the curve and saw this car stopped when I was shot. It was a pretty hard blow and I just fell right over." Miss Guseman was in the car behind that of free-lance photographer Joe Goulart, who was killed by one of the bullets, said policeman Gary Olson. Olson said he had parked hjs patrol car and was trying to aid another officer help the Gusemans when "a gentleman ran up and said, 'I think you better check this (Dodge) Dart.'" "I went over to the car and saw 1 a~rnan lying face down with his head on the floor of the passenger's car," Olson testified. "When I turned him over and pulled him out of the car, I recognized who it was. "It was Joe Goulart. After I got him out of the car, I was satisfied in my own mind that Mr. Goulart was dead."

For 20 years I have' been a dedicated husband and father. My relationship with my wife was built on love and devotion. It's almost as if we have been on a honeymoon all these years. My wife was a virgin when we were married and I would have trusted her anywhere with anyone. My. confidence was completely shattered six months ago when I discovered by accident that she was carrying on an affair with another man. This • was bad enough, but when I learned she was paying for the motel rooms with the money I worked so hard to earn, it was more than I could stand. My wife has begged me to forgive her — promised it will never happen again, but I am so hurt I just can't seem to forgive and forget as you have advised so often in your column. I haven't made love to her in six months and fdon't want anyone else. The only way our marriage will ever get back to where it was is if my wife goes before our minister and renews the vows she had broken. In order for this to have real meaning she would have to offer to do it on her own. I don't want the idea to come f,rpm nie. You could help us both by printing this letter and making a few comments.

The teacher says it. is because he likes me and he is just showing off. I am afraid if he keeps this up he will get sick and die and it will be my fault. What should I do about this problem? — Worried Girl Dear Girl: Nothing. Don't reward his crazy behavior by letting him know you are worried. If he finds out be might start to drink ink. Be pleasant when he acts normal. When he goes in for the funny stuff pay no attention to him whatsoever.-'.

You'd think the answer to this question could be looked up somewhere but we can't find it. Please tell us who pays for the groom's gold wedding band when there's a double-ring ceremony?
