People Bob Geldof Pete Rose 'Most inspiring people' selected WASHINGTON (AP) — Mother Teresa, Pete Rose and Bob Geldof are among the year's "10 most inspiring people," a private group says. Calling the winners "heroes for our time" the Millennium Society said the Nobel Prize-winning crusader, the baseball star, the Irish rock musician-philanthropist and seven others "helped fuel the hopes of so many young people looking with confidence to the future." The others are: Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, "for his faith in young people;" Titanic explorer Robert Ballard; Uli Derickson, purser on the TWA jet hijacked to Beirut, "for grace under pressure;" Soviet chess champion Gary Kasparov; South African dissident leader Winnie Mandela; entertainer Bob Hope; and Ebelia Gasca Rosas, an infant survivor of the Mexico City earthquake selected "for the miracle amid the ruins." Mary Lou now legally an adult FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - Gold medal gymnast Mary Lou Retton, the mini powder keg who wowed millions in the 1984 Olympics, has been legally declared an adult although she's a month shy of her 18th birthday. "I'm still Mary Lou," she said after a judge declared her emancipated from her parents, allowing her to make her own financial decisions. She asked for the court order so she could invest in a New York limited partnership that will own a Gary, N.C., apartment complex. Ronnie Retton, of Fairmont, said the action gives his daughter a tax break on her investments. She turns 18 on Jan. 24. Mary Lou Retton Storks sometimes strike twice POMONA, Calif.

FIEDLER Jr. Staff Writer D.W. eased his 80-pound frame cautiously over the rock ledge and stood on a narrow outcrop. Belayed to adult leader John Karath, he was ready to execute his descent. "On belay!" shoutedD.W. "Belay on," Karath answered. With his right hand tucked behind him in the brake tion, posi- D.W. First in a series inched backward over the edge of the sheer rock cliff. Fifty feet below sprouted a garden of cacti and boulders. His eyes widened, and the youngster grew reluctant to relax his left hand grip on the belay rope. "Lean back and spread your feet," Karath said. "I need something to hold on to ... I'm scared ... I need something to hold on to. Wait, the rope's slipping ... something slipped...." The boy's breath came in short gasps as his weight took up the slack in the rope. "Easy. Do you feel the rope tighten up?" "Yeah," D.W. said, sounding much relieved as the slack disappeared. "All right, D. Dub, good form," Karath said as D.W., in commendable rappelling stance, crept down the rock wall. About halfway down, confidence regained, D.W. walked up the cliff , face, leaned back, and hung upside ' down 20 feet above rock and prickly pear. "Look at me, Chief John, look, at me." His eyes no longer were the size of bagels, and he was smiling. Karath - "Chief John" to D.W. and the 11 other youngsters participating in the Passport For Adventure program — continued to act as be- layer for the rest of the group as they took turns on the rock.

During the late 1960s, staff members at St. Francis Boys Homes examined the histories of the boys who were under their care and found that the first signs of trouble surfaced around the ages of 10 and 11. They tried to build a corrective program aimed at that vulnerable age group for boys and girls who seemed likely to develop behavior problems la ter in life. From their labor was born 'Passport for Adventure, an early intervention program conducted mostly in rugged outdoor settings for fourth- through sixth-grade boys and girls. Gordon Fiedler Jr. Each sip of rationed water was savored. Karath was one of three "chiefs" in charge of this adventure, set in Big Bend National Park, Texas. The others were Cheryl Leavitt and Ken Goldberg. This was the last of three outdoor sessions for D.W., Dusty, Eric, Adam, Billy, John, Mark, Dale, George, Aaron, Benjy and Richard. They already had camped in the Arkansas Ozarks and hiked through Canyonlands National Park in Utah. Each trip lasted 15 days. Between trips, the boys sandwiched five days at home and school. The last session usually is the most physically and mentally demanding, the chiefs said. If the session itinerary calls for backpacking, as it did in Big Bend, they cover more miles. Also, with two sessions under their belts, the boys have the routine learned and can start running the show. Jim Beer, who directs the Passport program from the St. Francis headquarters at 509 E. Elm, Salina, said the boys and girls who are chosen to participate might exhibit a variety of problems, although most have low self-esteem, are shy and possess few social skills. Bill Pfohl, who once was a chief and now is group supervisor, said the 12 youngsters in each Passport group are picked at random from a pool of 16. Youths are recommended for Passport by their teachers or, in a few cases, parents. "We are looking for kids who know they have problems and who want to use Passport to change those things," Pfohl said. Some, obviously, try to point a finger at a sibling or classmate as the source of the problem, Pfohl said. "They just don't realize they need to be responsible for their actions," he added. Passport children sign contracts committing themselves to the program, and, the adult leaders hope, to change. "We try to get the kids to get control over their own lives," Beer said. Toward that end, each child spends (See Passport, Page 3) nutri system , _.^\j~^A 1.5 Shown, Fallen on "Dynasty II: The Colbys" 10 She's Jessica Fletcher 12 Mother ot 1 Across 14 Japanese drama 15 Proceeded 16 CBS anchorman 17 ID for a Thomas 18 Pecan, e.g. 20 Living quarters 22 Collection 23 In the past 24 Fish eggs 25 Range ol Knowledge 26 Dan Blocker role 29 Dismal ACROSS 31 Sign-oil lor Stanley 32 That is: abbr. 33 Played Maj.
