Pet beagle tutored top barker CHICAGO (AP) — Five-year-old Michelle Madonia has barked her way to fame and fortune, and she owes it all to her pet beagle. First, she won a contest called the National Bark-Off by doing the best impersonation of a barking dog. And that led to a television appearance on "Late Night with David Letterman" — and a free night in New York for her and her parents. The kindergarten student, who learned to bark from her dog, Lisa, started howling her way to fame in a contest at a shopping mall in October. She was the only child to show up at the Chicago contest in a dog costume. And she won. At the finals in New York, Michelle had to compete against contestants from 12 other cities. "I knew I was going to win," Michelle said. "I want the world to know me. I want to be a star." Her prizes include a trophy and a trip to Hollywood to watch the making of the "Proud Puppy" cartoon show. She and the other finalists also were invited to appear on the Letterman show, where they barked for a nationwide television audience. Songwriters plan to cite Jennings • NASHVILLE, Term. (AP) - Waylon Jennings, who has written such country music hits as "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?" and the theme from "The Dukes of Hazzard," will be honored by the Songwriters Guild of America. The guild announced it is saluting the country star for his contributions to songwriting and his encouragement to aspiring songwriters. Waylon Jennings Cardin clothes to dress up Soviets Pierre Cardin MOSCOW (AP) — Designer Pierre Cardin is bringing haute couture to Mos- covites, signing a contract with the Soviet Union to make clothes especially geared to the lif estyle of a nation of workers. It is his dream "to dress up all the 280 million people" of the Soviet Union, Cardin said after a signing ceremony with the Soviet deputy minister of light industry. The clothing will "express the spirit of France in the Soviet Union" and will be designed to accommodate the work and lifestyles of Soviet citizens in 21 fashion lines introduced each fall and spring, Cardin said. Parrot pitchmen push computers JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Robert Dyess is relying on a pair of parrot pitchmen to help him sell computers. Dyess, the 34-year-old owner of Mid-South Micros, is teaching parrots Sam and Clyde to say "IBM" instead of "hello." He will feature them in company advertisements and will use them to entertain customers. He said the birds make fine pets, but come at a hefty price. He bought them for between $1,000 and $2,000.

Many from New Cambria's surrounding farms are regulars, as are the assortment of Abilene and Salina residents who travel winding Kansas Highway 40 to nurse beers and shoot the breeze. But Roe wears another hat, besides that labeled "bartender." His sign, "Jim's Tavern and Barbershop," tells some of the story, as do the Kansas liquor and barber licenses that grace the walls. "Sometimes people come in for a beer, sometimes they come in for a haircut," saidRoe. "And then there's those who'll come in for a beer and a haircut." Roe said the idea to have a combination barbershop/tavern was born of necessity. He said he knew a barbershop wouldn't make it in New Cambria and thought he might stay afloat if he combined the barbershop with another trade. Thus, Roe's rather unlikely barbershop and tavern duo was born. In two large rooms containing the bar, tables, pool tables and a "Pac Man" game the beer and conversation flow. In a small room containing a barber chair and his other barber's equipment, hair is shorn in Roe's no- nonsense $4 haircuts. "I have some that'll get a beer and sit in the chair and drink it," he said. "A few ask me if I mind, but I don't." None of his barbershop patrons worry about Roe slipping with the shears and snipping an earlobe, he said, because he doesn't drink the beer he serves up. Roe has owned his business for 27 years, and his father had owned a barbershop in New Cambria — although not in the same building. Since bartenders and barbers spend many hours listening to people's problems, Roe probably puts in double time. "Someone is always telling me about their wife problems," he said. "I just listen and sometimes feel glad that I'm not married." Nowadays, he said, the discussion Scott William. Jim Roe cuts the hair of Bob DeHaven, Solomon, while other customers eat a pizza in Roe's bar. over a beer or a haircut has turned to farming problems. And since his business fluctuates with the wheat prices, Roe can relate. "Things haven't been so good lately," he said. "No one has money, and the ones that do are pretty tightfisted. But I really don't have serious worries, because I do own my building." He said not many people have been highly surprised at his combined businesses. But when the Air Force Base was in Salina, he said, the enlisted men loved to be able to come and get a haircut and drink at the same time. "Some of those boys thought it was funny," he said. "Many of them were from cities like Chicago and had never heard of anything like this.'' And his place is one where patrons can truly get away from it all. "Don't have a phone," he said, "never have. That way no one gets calls from their wives looking for them." Authority to relocate cornerstone The Salina-Saline County Building Authority has agreed to accept the old city hall cornerstone that was displayed at the former Smoky Hill Museum in Oakdale Park. The park building is being demolished. The cornerstone will be relocated near the flagpole in front of the City- County Building, 300 W. Ash. The building authority oversees the operation and maintenance of the build- ing. Before it is placed at the new site, the stone will be trucked to a stone quarry at St. Mary's, where it will be repaired for $55. The 32- by 34- by 20-inch stone came from the city hall that stood on the southwest corner of Ash and Fifth. Museum Director Ed Stelfox said the building was built in 1912 and demolished in the 1960s. Concerned about the cost of glasses?
