Rainbow Executive Board, . said official word was ~ received . that the Inter-. national Order of Rainbow for n Girls has changed its mem- „ bership policy.

Walters' attorney, Greg Herman, questioned the complainant after Scott overruled his motion that the courtroom be cleared before questioning. Scott again ruled Monday that a crime had been committed and there was probable cause to hold Walters/or trial. Walters remains in'the Ellis County Jail on failure to post $25,000 bond. Government Investigating Video Games WASHINGTON (UPI) The government is trying to determine if those electronic video games so popular as gifts this Christmas can damage television picture tubes. Officials said Monday the Federal Trade Commission staff is exploring the possibility of a full-scale investigation, but a spokesman warned against jumping to any conclusion about the games being harmful. "We are conducting a staff investigation to determine ff there is some adverse impact by these games on TV receivers," one official said. "But at this point there's no determination. You can't imply there's a problem jus 1 ! because there's an investigation. We're trying to be balanced." Electronic ping-pong, tennis and similar games are a hot- selling Christmas item due to recent mass production and technological improvements, which have brought the price of many of them down to under $100. ,An independent newsletter, "FTC Watch," said the agency will approve and announce a full investigation later this week. It-quoted commission sources as stressing that there is not sufficient evidence to show the games can in fact damage a picture tube, but the staff wants to make sure. FTC Watch said more than 3.5 million of the video games have been sold, to the tune of $242 million a year. The newsletter said one discount catalog retail store has been using a hand-lettered sign on one of the game products, warning shoppers that a permanent imprint might be left on the TV screen after prolonged use.

He has done this dally for five years. (UPI Photo) Syria, Egypt Team Up CAIRO (UPI) — Egypt and Syria agreed Tuesday to forge close unity and to seek an early resumption of Arab- Israeli peace talks despite the political upheaval caused by Israeli Premier Yitzhak Rabin's resignation. Diplomatic sources said the agreements were reached in talks between Presidents Hafez Assad of Syria and Anwar Sadat of Egypt spanning a fourday official visit by the Syrian leader, his first since the two countries reconciled their differences last October following a 13- month rift. They said the unity plan calls for close coordination in political, military and other fields through joint councils topped by a political' command made up of Sadat and Assad. But it stops short of a complete merger, they said. The plan was embodied in a joint' declaration Sadat and Assad signed Tuesday morning before the Syrian leader flew home. . Just before Assad's departure, he and Sadat made a onehour inspection tour of some Egyptian military equipment, including warplanes, arrayed on the tarmac of Cairo airport. Newsmen and photographers were barred from the display, and officials said it included some advanced weapons Egypt acquired lately. The diplomatic sources said Sadat and Assad agreed to STUDY LIGHTS ' ITHACA, N.Y.

By RODNEY HOFFMAN GARDEN CITY (HNS) After suffering a high voltage shock and amputation of an arm and leg, you might expect George Andrasek of Scott City to be depressed. Instead, he's eager to join his family at home for Christmas. "You can't let something like this bother you. You just have to go on living," he said. "I think it was just a freak accident." Two weeks ago, Andrasek was working about four miles northeast of Leoti with a crew from Wheatland Electric Co., in Scott City. A series of new poles had been installed and Andrasek climbed one to make the last connections. > Power was inadvertantly turned onto one of the wires he was handling. "I was up on the pole and had one boot stuck in the pole and then I had my right leg hanging over the neutral line," he said. "Then I heard a real loud, shrill-almost popping sound. They said I was hanging over the wire." Andrasek never stopped .breathing. He was semiconscious though a wire with 7,620 volts nearly brushed across his heart. He spent more than eight hours in an operating room in St. Catherine Hospital while doctors removed his left arm and right leg. Even that had its complications. "The doctor said the leg and arm had to come off or I'd die. I laid up here almost 24 hours and no one would sign the consent for amputation. Finally I told them I would sign it," he said. "We strongly believe in the Lord," Andrasek explained. "What they (his family) were believing was that the Lord would heal me." By his own account of rapid improvement has been nothing less than he expected. After surgery again last Saturday, he was told he would be In Intensive care for two or three days. Sunday morning he was taken to general care. His wife, Penny, makes daily trips from Scott City to visit him. But he's seen his nine-month-old daugther, Julia Ann, only once since the accident, lie proudly points to several snapshots of her displayed on the wall of his room. / "They told me I might nol get to go home until New Years but I'm hoping to go home for Christmas because it's uny little girl's first Christmas," he said. Andrasek, who has been working at Wheatland Electric for two years, said he's eager to return to work once he goes through a rehabilitation program with an artificial leg. His arm cannot be replaced. "When I get out of the Hospital I've got a guaranteed job for lift; at Wheatland Electric. They said Ihev would train me to do whatever I want." Andrasek said he could chose a career in business m a n a ge me n I, electrical engineering "or 1 may want an easier job and go there and collect utility bills." While in St. Catherine, the life-long Scott Cily native celebrated his 29th birthday. Nurses brought him a cake and sang "Happy Birthday."
