(AP) — Entertainer Johnny Carson is gambling on Nevadans having a sense of humor. Gov. Richard Bryan asked for an apology for a : joke he said held the state's women up to ridicule, I but Carson told his "The Tonight Show" TV audience that Bryan should "lighten up," and held forth with | more Nevada humor. Samples: "Nevada is a rich state, with 38 percent of the I nation's gold. Most of that in the teeth of six cocktail f waitresses in Reno." "Nevada serves a useful purpose: It separates' California from Colorado so John Denver doesn't Carson keep Californians awake all night with weird songs about mountains." "Visitors love Nevada in the summer, when it's hot, especially if they're doing medical research. Nevada is first in the nation in buzzard autopsies..." The original joke? "What's the difference between a parrot and a Nevada woman? You can teach a parrot to say no." Fords ensure land conservation JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Actor Harrison Ford and his wife want to protect the other residents of their Snake River property — two bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, moose, elk, deer and trumpeter swans. So they've put 132 acres in a conservation trust. _ Ford, best known for his roles as the swashbuckl : ing archeologist Indiana Jones, and Melissa Math-' ison have donated the easement to the Jackson Hole i Land Trust. Two creeks are home to cutthroat trout I and the property has the largest great blue heron rookery in Wyoming, said trust executive director | Jean Hocker. "It's hard to imagine such a place covered with | buildings, but that certainly could have happened Ford some day. The Fords have done a splendid thing by making sure that it never will," Hocker said. Fiberglass infant needed diaper NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A huge fiberglass infant created to welcome 1986 at the Jackson Brewery had an impish grin, a cute belly, and—Oh, my! — no clothes. It's a boy, an anatomically correct boy. So brewery officials told sculptor Blaine Kern Jr. to fashion a cover-up. Kern, creator of Mardi Gras floats, lashed out angrily at first, but relented and put a diaper on the infant. "It's stupid," he said. "It's the prudish people in this world who cause dissension. It's a baby. It's not female, it's male." The brewery is a French Quarter structure that once churned out beer but was recently renovated to create a mall full of specialty shops, restaurants and bars. Weatherman to cut quite a cake LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — Does zany NBC weatherman Willard Scott take the cake? He'll be expected to cut a colossal one tonight. Scott, of the "Today" show, will cut the 40-by-40-foot cake at a Lake Charles Civic Center party. The event is one of a number of kickoff events scheduled between now and Mardi Gras in February. The recipe calls for 100 pounds of flour, 40 pounds of powdered sugar, 30 pounds of butter, 14 pounds of shortening, five pounds of yeast, 30 dozen eggs, two gallons of dry milk, 67 cups of water and a pint of vanilla. It is being prepared by chefs at the Sowela Technical Institute. Willard Scott He's backward, and proud of it! MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Anthony Thornton is proud he did something backward. The designer of athletic shoes is claiming a record for walking 83 miles backward within 24 hours. Thornton, 35, of Minneapolis, barely beat a record of 82.95 miles in 24 hours, as listed in the "Guinness Book of World Records." Thornton walked around the boardwalk on the Washington Avenue Bridge across the Mississippi River. Each trip around is about a quarter of a mile. He hired a security firm to log each circuit. "I walk everywhere I go," said Thornton, who has participated in "numerous walks" of varying lengths during the last 18 years. Brady book emphasizes his wit CENTRAUA, 111. (AP) — The biography of White House Press Secretary James Brady, wounded during the attempted assassination of President Reagan in 1981, was not intended as a plea for gun control, its author said. While biographer Mollie Dickenson said she hopes the book helps the cause, she said her main goal in the book, tentatively titled "Thumbs Up — The Story of Jim Brady," is to capture a sense of the Centralia native's quick wit, spirit and courage. Brady, 45, earned a reputation for quips before he, President Reagan and two Secret Service officers were shot by John W. Hinckley Jr. on March 30,1981. Brady's wit survived. When he returned to work Rradv after months of therapy, Brady called Hinckley "an * awfully bad shot" and told the White House press corps "I missed most of you." Brady, still in pain and partially paralyzed, undergoes four hours of intensive therapy daily. He still holds the title of press secretary and assistant to the president, and works a few hours each week. Women alerted about deadline for claims The Salina Journal Monday, January 6.1986 Page 2 ALL LADIES' WINTER SHOES & BOOTS 14 PRICE WASHINGTON (AP) - An American company, acting under court supervision, begins a 91-nation advertising campaign today to alert 4.5 million women that they have only four more months to file claims for health problems caused by the Dalkon Shield. The A.H. Robins Co. of Richmond, Va., and an international public relations firm will mount the advertising campaign to inform women they must give notice of their claim by April 30 or be forever barred from suing. The campaign is aimed at an estimated 2.8 million women in the United States and 1.7 million women overseas who received the Dalkon Shield intrauterine contraceptive device between 1971 and 1974, when the Food and Drug Administration asked Robins to halt sales because of health risks. The campaign is being monitored by federal bankruptcy Judge Robert R. Merhige, who approved the advertising plan as part of Robins' petition seeking to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy law. Robins sought the protection of the bankruptcy court last year after being deluged with some 13,000 lawsuits over the Dalkon Shield. The lawsuits contend that poor design of the shield allowed bacteria to enter the uterus, causing ailments including pelvic disease, blood poisoning and infection, sterility, spontaneous abortions and even death. The company and its insurer already have paid some $520 million to settle about 9,450 of the cases. Robins asked the court, however, .to set a deadline for new claims against it involving any of the 2.8 million Dalkon Shields distributed in the United States or the 1.7 million distributed overseas. Merhige has ruled that any of those women seeking damages must give notice by April 30. Under Merhige's order, Robins Couple win sweat suits suit LOS ANGELES (AP) — A couple forced off a Europe-bound airliner because they were wearing jogging suits have won their small claims suit against World Airways. Donald and Magdalena Colgan of Oxnard, 60 miles west of downtown, boarded a World Airways jet in Los Angeles last June for their first trip to Europe. But they only got as far as Baltimore-Washington International Airport. Although their gray his-and-hers jogging suits were apparently acceptable in Los Angeles, an airline official in Baltimore found them too casual. The couple bought the half-price tickets from a friend through a World Airways program offering discounts to friends and relatives of employees. The airline said a brochure accompanying the discount tickets said dressy attire was required of such ticket-holders. "Nobody mentioned that to us when we boarded in L.A.," said Colgan, 37. "If they had, we would have come back next day or changed our clothes there or whatever.... We wanted to be comfortable.'' But they couldn't get to their clothes during the Baltimore stopover, and the plane and the Colgans' luggage went on to Frankfurt, West Germany. The airline is appealing the $1,000 judgment the Colgans won last month in small claims court. The Colgans said that in their 10 months of planning for the trip — visas, passports and a $15,000 loan to buy a car in Europe — two "nice, clean" jogging suits were the last thing they expected would interfere.

The U.S. campaign includes quarter-page advertisements in 225 of the nation's largest newspapers and full- page ads in six national weekly magazines — Time, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, People, Jet and TV Guide — as well as in the National Enquirer and The Star. In broadcast media, Robins will make 30-second announcements 41 times on network television; 171 times on cable "superstations" and the Spanish Information Network; and 45 times on Puerto Rican television stations. All the notices will tell women they must give notice by April 30 to pursue a claim for damages against Robins. The claim can be as simple as mailing a postcard to the clerk of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Richmond with name and address and a stat- ment that a claim is being filed, the company said. The procedure does not require a lawyer. Claimants will receive further instructions and a questionnaire that must be completed and returned by June 30. The overseas campaign is being handled by the Washington-based public relations firm of Burson- Marsteller. It involves no paid advertising, instead relying on news broadcasts, assistance from government health agencies and public service announcements it will ask newspapers and television and radio stations to print or broadcast free. The firm plans to hold news conferences on the claim deadline in 15 foreign countries over the next two weeks, including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Wayne Pines, the Burson- Marsteller executive handling the campaign, said the program will be tailored to the country involved.
