Kansan among top women cited NEW YORK (AP) — Ms. magazine publisher Gloria Steinem handed out awards to the first female Harlem Globetrotter, comedian Lily Tomlin, President Reagan's daughter Patti Davis, and 10 others the publication named''Women of the Year.'' Other honorees were AIDS researcher Matnilde Krim, Portland, Ore., Police Chief Penny Harrington, Motown Productions President Suzanne de Passe, Navajo Indian Mae Chee Castillo, Philadelphia gerontologist Elaine Brody, Chicago community organizer Gale Cincotta, Los Angeles City Council member Joy Picus, and literary editors Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar. Lynette Woodard, Wichita, Kan., was honored "for challenging popular stereotypes of skill and strength" by becoming the first woman Harlem Globetrotter. Tomlin was chosen "for making ordinary women into stars and vice versa," in her Broadway show "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe." Hometown to screen 'Purple' EATONTON, Ga. (AP) — Organizers are hoping Alice Walker will come home for a special screening of "The Color Purple," the Steven Spielberg hit movie based on her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Proceeds from two screenings Jan. 18, and an accompanying reception, will go to the new "Color Purple Scholarship Fund" at Putnam County High School, said Ruth Walker Hood of Atlanta, the novelist's sister. The movie, winner of the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, tells the story of a black rural Georgia woman in the early part of the 20th Century. Walker has said the book has its roots in the experiences of women in her Putnam County family. Alice Walker Klinghoffer story may be movie NEW YORK (AP) - The story of Leon Klinghoffer, the disabled American tourist who was killed during the Achille Lauro ship hijacking last October, and his wife, Marilyn, may be made into a television movie. Mrs. Klinghoffer has been talking to producers about selling the story. "This is not a crass commercial thing," said a spokeswoman, Letty Simon. "(Mrs. Klinghoffer) doesn't want to be a public figure, but she feels the story should be told." Klinghoffer, who was confined to a wheelchair, was killed and his body dumped overboard by Palestinian terrorists who seized the cruise snip in the Mediterranean. His body later washed Marilyn Klinghoffer ashore in Lebanon. Soviet poet plans visit to U.S. MOSCOW (AP) — Poet Yevgeny Yev- tushenko plans to visit the United States next month for the American premiere of his autobiographical film "Kindergarten," Tass said. Yevtushenko, who last went to the United States in the summer of 1985 for poetry readings, told the news agency he has been invited by "a number" of American universities to give poetry recitals during his next trip. "Kindergarten," which opened in the Soviet Union in 1984, is based on Yev- tushenko's reminiscences of childhood during World War II. Yevtushenko made a reputation in the 1960s as an anti-establishment poet, but has since gained official recognition. Wisconsin asks state employees to aid fanners on King's birthday MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin's governor asked state employees Wednesday to spend Martin Luther King Jr. Day helping farmers pick corn left in fields by wet weather, and a black leader applauded the idea as consistent with King's "struggle... for all people." "Helping people who are in trouble seems a good way to commemorate the holiday," Gov. Anthony Earl said, adding that he and others in his office plan to get into the fields to help with the delayed harvest. An estimated 680,000 acres of corn, or 20 percent of the 1985 crop, remain in snow-packed fields, the highest percentage at this time of year in more than a decade, agriculture experts said. The state's livestock herds also are threatened by a dwindling supply of feed corn. Earl spent part of Saturday in Iowa County helping a farmer pick corn in a snow-covered field, and said he intended to help another farmer soon. Many farmers can use assistance •'from people who aren't afraid of a little hard work," Earl said. "The worst they will probably get is a little wet and a little cold." The Democratic governor's plan would be consistent with King's "struggle for the dignity and worth of all people," said Howard Fuller, secretary of the state Department of Employment Relations and a black activist from Milwaukee. He said it was a way state employees from secretaries to executives could observe Wisconsin's new Jan. 20 holiday. "I think the governor has highlighted the state's farmers as people in need of assistance," said attorney Walter White Jr., president of the Milwaukee Urban League. "I note that they are not the only people in need of assistance in the state," he said, "but I like the governor's ... implication that Dr. King's birthday is not a birthday to be cele- brated like those of some of the presidents." The move also could help make urban residents more aware of farmers' problems, said state Sen. Walter Chilsen, whose district around Wausau includes large dairy farms. But Chilsen said he was skeptical about how helpful "city slickers" might be in aiding farmers. There'* a HEALTH INSURANCE Shield for you too! AT SHELTER, IT'S A MATTER OF PERSONAL PRIDE.

(AP) — Coca- Cola has won the Fillmore Society's 1985 Medal of Mediocrity for "classic indecisiveness" in changing its product almost as often as Millard Fillmore changed political parties. The society celebrates mediocrity in the name of the president deemed easiest to forget. Coke's campaign in bringing out a new formula "wasn't an advertising coup," said Phil Arkow, society vice president. "It was the biggest man- g flop since the Edsel.
