(AP) — "Tonight Show" writers are preparing a comic "salute to Nevada" aimed at appeasing Gov. Dick Bryan, who was angered by a ;joke that he said denigrated Nevada ; women. Last month, "Tonight Show" host Johnny Carson asked, "What's the difference between a woman from Nevada and a parrot? "You can teach a parrot to say 'no,' " Carson said. Bryan demanded an apology, complaining that the joke played on a stereotype fostered by legal prostitution in Nevada.

Dick Bryan Stars wish for peace, good health NEW YORK (AP) — Rock sii.'ger Cyndi Lauper's wish for the new year was peace on Earth and a cure for AIDS, but crooner Julio Iglesias had his own health in mind. "I'm going to quit smoking!" Iglesias resolved New Year's Eve. Actress Liza Minnelli only wanted "peace in the world," and actor Matt Dillon also took a serious tack. "My wish for 1986 is that we all find patience, understanding, tolerance and friendship for each other," he told the Daily News. Vice President George Bush vowed "to keep my weight down and my chin up," while Sen. Alf onse D'Amato, R-N.Y., promised Lauper Iglesias "to work very hard for all the people of New York State and to see the Giants win the Super Bowl." Comedian Bob Hope linked his fortunes in 1986 to his golf swing. "My resolution?" he said.,"To break par!" ' And impressionist Rich Little said he will "stop being so impressionable." TAKING THE PLUNGE — The air was a balmy 30 degrees, the water a mere 36 degrees and the ice only 5Vz inches thick when 63 members of the Mount Gretna Polar Bear Club took their annual New Year's Day plunge in Lake Conewago at Mount Gretna, Pa., as 200 others watched.

(AP) Burger King's television commercials about an out-of-touch loser named Herb has a Herb here sizzling over his name being used as the butt of a joke. "At first I thought it was funny, but I'm getting comments from people about 15 times a day," said Herbert Paul Schenck. "They've got an ad out now that says, 'Hey, nincompoop.' People say, 'Yeah, I know you. You're that idiot on TV.' So I told them I'm tired of their smear campaign against Herb." Schenck, a 32-year-old printer, has asked other Herbs to join him with public complaints and pickets. The national hamburger chain began airing the commercials Nov. 1, portraying "Herb" as the only person on Earth who hasn't sampled its wares. Most of the 200 Herbs who've written Burger King about the $40 million advertising campaign like it, a spokeswoman said.

Moammar Khadafy has warned that any reprisals against Libya in connection with the airport attacks at Rome and Vienna could spark a war that eventually reaches American and Israeli streets. The 43-year-old radical Libyan leader, quoted by the official news agency JANA, threatened Wednesday that an assault on Libya would prompt him to "declare war in the Mediterranean and in all the Middle East." He called Palestinian guerrilla acts "the most sacred action on earth" but denied Libya was responsible for the "field operations" of Palestinian fighters. U.S. and Israeli officials say they believe a Palestinian faction headed by Abu Nidal and reportedly based in Libya carried out the Dec. 27 airport attacks that left 19 dead and about 120 injured. While the JANA dispatch did not directly refer to the twin atacks, Khadafy was quoted as saying that Palestinians are acting "as a reply to what Israeli fighter planes did in Tunisia when they massacred tens of Palestinians there." Israeli planes bombed Palestine Liberation Organization headquarters hi Tunisia on Oct. 1, killing at least 60 Tunisians and Palestinians. "Should the Israelis reply to this act, there would be another reply against them at the hands of the Palestinian people," Khadafy said. However, he added that "we are not responsible about the type of field operations" of the guerrillas. Couple terrorized man for 6 years, police say NEW YORK (AP) - An accountant and his wife terrorized a retarded man for six years, beating him, forcing him to do their housework and robbing him of his Social Security checks, police said Thursday. Without his welfare check, the 40-year-old victim was forced to go to friends and neighbors for handouts. When police discovered his plight on New Year's Day, he had collapsed from malnutrition; scars on his arms, legs, back and face indicated that he had been beaten and scratched, police said. Melvin Moshlak, 45, and his wife, Norma, 52, of Brooklyn were charged with grand larceny, robbery and assault, said Housing police Officer Mitchell Buchwalter. They were being held pending arraignment, said Linda Sachs, a spokeswoman for Brooklyn District Attorney Elizabeth Holtzman. "They threatened his life," Buchwalter said, "They told him that they would kill him." According to a complaint filed with the district attorney's office, for six years the Moshlaks allegedly forced the man to turn over most of his Social Security checks. The amount allegedly stolen was not made clear. The complaint charged they beat, scratched and hit him with a bottle "causing bleeding, scarring and bruises." Buchwalter said it was not clear how the man knew the couple or how the attacks began. But almost every day, Buchwalter said, the man would travel the mile from his apartment to the Moshlaks' flat. There, he would do housework. Death rate drops among pregnant women over 35 CHICAGO (AP) — The death rate among women 35 and older from pregnancy-related causes has dropped nearly 50 percent hi recent years, though women that age are still three times as likely to die from such causes as younger women, a study shows. "Although older women will probably continue to be at higher risk of maternal death, recent trends ... should be reassuring to younger women who are considering postponement of pregnancy and to women aged 35 or older who are contemplating pregnancy," researchers said in an article in Friday's Journal of the American Medical Association. The reseachers suggested the decline could be attributed to the higher "socioeconomic status" of older women having babies hi recent years. "In general, people of lower education and income have higher mortality rates," Dr. James W. Buehler, who headed the study at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, said hi a telephone interview. "In addition, advances in medical care probably have contributed to the decline," the researchers said. The study said pregnancy-related deaths among women age 35 and over were about 50 percent lower hi 1982 than from 1974 through 1978. The mortality rate among such women hi 1982 was 24.2 deaths per 100,000 live births, compared with an average 47.5 deaths per 100,000 live births for 1974 through 1978, the study said. The mortality rates included deaths from abortions.
