Garri Kasparov Korchnoi wants a chess rematch TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Chess master Victor Korchnoi has hinted he may take on world champion Gary Kasparov. Korchnoi, who defected from the Soviet Union in 1976, said he announced last year that he would not play former chess champion Anatoly Karpov because Karpov "had become a political symbol of the Soviet Union." But since Kasparov defeated Karpov this fall, "I hope that my ambition will appear again" to vie for the world chess crown, Korchnoi said in a telephone interview. Korchnoi, who lives in Switzerland, was visiting his stepmother, who lives in Israel. Victor Korchnoi Trip to hospital proved big task HENDERSONVILLE, N.C.

Lottery winner beats big odds BELLA VISTA, Calif. (AP) Luck like John Fruits' doesn't grow on trees. It comes in the form of winning ticket after winning ticket in the California lottery. The 47-year-old landscape gardener has won many $2 and $5 prizes, two prizes of $100, one of $5,000 and still another for $10,000. And this week he scratched off a ticket and won a $25,000 instant prize. "This is phenomenal," said lottery district manager Sandra Jones. "Think of the odds." The lottery handicap gives a ticket buyer a 4,000-1 chance for twin $100 prizes; 40,000-1 for a $5,000 prize; 80,000-1 for a $10,000 ticket and 240,000-1 for the three scratch-off aces that add up to a $25,000 bonanza. After spending $4,500 on lottery tickets, Fruits said he planned to use his winnings to buy more. He's holding out for a $1,000 winner to complete his set. The Salina Journal P.O.

(AP) — A man who saw a group of people authorities here thought may have been linked to an unidentified boy whose body was found in Thayer County last month was unable to recognize photographs of the dead child, the Cheyenne County Sheriff said Friday from Sidney. Sheriff Darrell Johnson said a corrections officer from his western Nebraska county "seemed to recall" a woman in Sidney on Dec. 12 carrying a boy fitting the dead boy's des- cription. But the officer was unable to say that photographs of the dead boy supplied to him by the Nebraska State Patrol were those of the child he saw in Sidney. "It turned out to be a nonproductive lead from our end," Johnson said. "We are just trying to help in any way we can." Authorities believe the child was a 9 or 10 years old. He had blond hair, 4- foot-2 and weighed about 50 to 70 pounds. ALL LADIES' WINTER SHOES & BOOTS l /2 PRICE "Mid StmteUfU's Only LiOlei' Shot SpedMlty Sftop " While Supply Lasts!
