Page 2 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Thursday, March 24, 1988 Pole Telephone Continued From Page ! her daughter was riding high as she entered the final day of an adventure that has been an emotional roller coaster. "Mellissa is running on sheer adrenaline at this point," said Mrs. Sanders. She said her daughter will face certain unexpected challenges when she returns to the ground. "For one thing I'm going to have to sue for slander and defamation of character," said Mrs. Sanders. She said the lawsuit would be filed against Dick Turner, the man with whom the Sanders' launched the pole-sitting venture. "I can't jus* sit by and let the man say things against us," Mrs. Sanders said. "We've done nothing wrong. It's just that he pulled out on Mellissa, and now he doesn't want to see her succeed. He's trying to put a damper on it." Turner suggested the pole- sitting stunt as a way to advertise his restaurant and raise money for a charitable cause. Miss Sanders said she moved from Arizona to do the stunt under Turner's sponsorship. However, Turner opted out of the project less than six months after it. was started. He contends the Sanders' expected too much financial support and were claiming too large a percentage of the charitable proceeds. "I initiated the whole thing, and I'm glad she made it," said Turner, who plans to turn $3,300 in donations over to Indiana University cancer research this week. "But she wanted to change the rules once she got up in the house, and that's not right. "I've sure learned one lesson," Turner said. "Never do anything without a contract.'' Miss Sanders said she spent her last night with friends and reporters in the shack atop two telephone poles. Miss Sanders said today's celebration would include her pet cat who has kept her company throughout the stunt. The teen-ager's fiance, 25- year-old Keith Seal of Monterey, Calif., was on hand Wednesday afternoon helping Miss Sanders prepare for her descent. The two met after Seal read an article about Miss Sanders and decided to telephone her. They announced their engagement in August, before ever having met. "He's great. He's been just great," Miss Sanders said, adding that she would share her first post-pole dinner with Seal. Miss Sanders said she plans to move back to Arizona in May and attend a trade school. Although she doesn't regret the venture, she said, "I've had mirror after mirror up here, and every one has broken almost immediately. Maybe that's why I've had bad luck. I never could see anything clearly." Around Town Building Permits Anna Wandrei,. 435 Washington St., $631, Weatherization.

Asked if a treaty would be ready in time, Reagan said, "I have no way of answering that." Shevardnadze called it "a possibility." The envisioned treaty would set a ceiling of 6,000 warheads on long-range missiles and bombers, but the two sides must still set sub-limits on the various types of weapons and decide how to verify compliance with a pact.

Shevardnadze said progress has been made on verification, but "much more work needs to be done," at the continuing round of talks in Geneva and at two more Shultz-Shevardnadze sessions, first in Moscow April 21-25 and then in the middle of May at an unspecified site. Shuitz and Shevardnadze portrayed their governments as working with a common purpose to fit pieces of the arms control puzzle in time for the summit. Continued From Page 1 signatures to ask for toll-free calling between Royal Center and Logansport. Royal Center customers balloted at the end of 1987 and Logansport customers voted the first of this year. Royal Center businessman Max Metzger, instrumental in circulating the petition, said today he was very happy with the outcome. "It should help emergency services and the overall relationship between businesses in Logansport and Royal Center," he said. Marni Lemons, of the public information office of the URC, said Royal Center GTE customers had the option of voting for EAS regardlessof who would pay the costs; voting for EAS only if Logansport shared the costs, or voting against EAS. Of the 741 GTE customers in Royal Center, 360 voted yes, regardless of who would pay the cost of EAS; 81 voted yes, only if Logansport shared the cost; and 35 voted against EAS. A total of 476 ballots were returned from Royal Center customers. In Logansport, the 12,429 GTE customers voted only for or against EAS. A total of 2,452 voted for EAS and 2,573 voted against it. In all 5,025 ballots were returned from Logansport customers. Lemons said the low ballot return from Logansport was not unusual. "Usually it is the smaller community rather that the larger community that is more interested in the issue. Lemons pointed out that had Logansort customers agreed to share the costs, it would have been relatively low, a 92-cent increase per month for the next five years. EAS will be available to anyone with the Royal Center 643 exchange, Berry said. Obituaries Katheryn E. Patton MONTICELLO — Katheryn E.
