The young man, Robert Lopez, did have a prior criminal record for armed robbery and other offenses and the. New York City officials Action Line checked do not consider bis sentence unduly'. r - , ·· . . . harsh. Under .New York 1.3W, the minimum he could have drawn was 3 years,the maximum 30, according to Robert Holmes, the assistant district attorney assigned to the case. Lopez, E 20-year-old East Harlem youth, was sentenced for two crimes -- for the Kennedy bike theft and for the armed robbery of an auxiliary policeman. He pleaded guilty to both and drew two M64-year sentences which wffl run concurrently. He will be eligible for parole after one year.

Iii mint condition ' Early last year I ordered two 1974 proof coin sets from the U.S. Bureau'of the Mint in San Francisco. I paid $14 for' both sets. Sometime later I checked with the bureau and found out they had been shipped to someone else through a computer error. I was told .the problem would be straightened out but I have heard nothing more. Please see if you can get them to mail my coins. H.K., Long Beach. . * · You should have your coins in a couple of weeks. When Action Line first called the bureau, Audrey Broussard told us they .were planning to have the person who received the corns by mistake either mail them back or pay for them. Then, she said, they would get yoiir coins to you.'However, at our request, she got authorization to send another set to you first to avoid further delays. · ; . ' · . .

The sets, marketed under the Panasonic, J.C. Penney, Penncrest and* Bradford-brands, could emit 5 to 25 times the maximum amount of radiation allowed under federal standards, said an FDA spokesman. Owners of the affected models will be notified by mail who they -are supposed to contact for service. The sets will be repaired at no charge to the consumer. Until the sets ale ^repaired, viewers would be safe if they sit at least effect away from the set, according to the .FDA Spokesman. The model numbers for the Panasonic sets, all preceded by the letters "CT" are: 201, 252, 253, 254? 256, 256A, 314, 324, 398, 398A, 701, 701A, 702, 704, Mfljsil; 911E (VTR), 911V (VTR), 912,. 924, 944, 2514, 2524 and 2534.

Archivist · , '. r 'What are the academic requirements and prof es- sibnal background required for an individual who wishes to be an archivist--such as for a university or the federal government? Also, what is the difference between an archivist and a librarian? G.H., Long t. Although there is no formal certification required t b e an archivist, the general requirements are an advanced degree in history or library science, according to Ann Campbell, executive secretary of the Society of 1 American Archivists. A spokesman for the Library ofSCongress said the federal government requires its archivists to have master's degrees in history. Mrs. 6?5npbeU said it would be helpful if one desiring to be ^archivist had some experience working in an archives manuscript depository. However, she said most ajjrchivists are trained on the job. The difference between an archivist and a librarian is that an archivist ha'ndles and catalogs original documents while a librarian handles printed material such as books, magazines and newspapers. Some universities now offering formal fining to Jbe an archivist include Western Washington State University and the University of Wisconsin. .

Plus M,\ri-Othors Sired in Ccrrito* Listed as jobless at day care center Brown aide got welfare benefits SACKAMEKTO CJPI- Gov. Brown said Wednesday, he was "very surprised" to learn his press secretary was listed as unemployed so his daughter could attend a publicly financed day care center at reduced rates. Press Secretary Bill Stall' said be had no idea why he was so listed, in 1973 and, "for the record, I was just as surprised." A federal audit report said the state: spent $50,000 in federal funds to operate two day care cen- tlnjwrsity for 104 nhil. dren who'were not eligible . under federal rules. About 230 children were cared for at the centers, and the federal government asked the state fora refund. The flap was the first of its kind to ripple the otherwise placid · first three weeks of Brown's administration. Stall, former Associated Press political writer and bureau chief in Sacramento, said his daughter attended the center twice a week for three months in the,spring of 1973. His wife was taking one class at the university. Stall, who left the news service to join Brown's staff earlier this month, said he did not have "the faintest idea" how he was listed as unemployed on a day care center form. If the federal audit is correct, Stall said, he will reimburse the government immediately. He said that, at the time, he had worked for the Associated .Press for 14 years and had ho intention of becoming unemployed; He reported his salary at about $20,500 a year. State. Education Department officials said the case would be appealed to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, .which issued the audit. The officials were reluctant to discuss Stall's case specifically, but said it was a "clerical error" that enabled his daughter to attend at reduced rates. The children of unemployed persons attended the center at reduced rates because their fami- lies were eligible for the federal assistance under Aid to Families with Dependent Children, The parents of such children pay about 7 cents an hour to the center, while the federal government subsidizes-the center under the AFDC pro- gram at 93 cents an,hour. "Somebody reached an illogical conclusion," Stall said. "We assumed it was a baby-sitting service. "She wouldn't have been there if we ever had . any idea it was supposed to be for welfare cases," Stall said. RETREADS TIRE CO. ver 30 Years in Some Location Jredlt . B ol A .
