Birth weights ranged from 2 pounds 14 ounces to 7 pounds 12 ounces. Price too high for Hope's plateau SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Local officials have given up efforts to buy a tract of mountain land from comedian Bob Hope that they had wanted for a park. For almost two years, park planners had tried to get hold of China Flat, a 706- acre plateau Hope owns in the mountains 40 miles northwest of Los Angeles. The grassy area, home to golden eagles, prairie falcons, deer and an occasional mountain lion, was valued at $1,100 an acre by the Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District in Ventura County. But Hope wanted $20,000 an acre, and park officials have dropped efforts to persuade him to cut his price. Bob Hope Second Lady pays visit to K.C. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — As part of her campaign to stamp out illiteracy, Barbara Bush visited two educational centers here. "I'm very interested in motivating children to learn and read," the 60-year- old wife of Vice President George Bush said Friday at the end of her 30-minute tour of Kaleidoscope, a creative art center. The next stop was The Learning Exchange, where educators trade resources and ideas. "Illiteracy is not an incurable disease," she said after her tour. Barbara Bush Patty Duke to wed drill sergeant LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wedding bells will soon ring again for actress Patty Duke, who is engaged to marry an Army drill sergeant she met while filming a movie about life in the military. Duke, 38, recently elected president of the Screen Actors Guild, will marry Sgt. 1st Class Michael Pearce on April 26 in Los Angeles. , The two met while she was filming the CBS-TV movie "A Time to Triumph," in which she portrayed a housewife who became an Army pilot to support | her family. The movie was broadcast last week. Pearce, 31, of Wallace, Idaho, served as a techni-1 cal adviser during filming of the movie at Fort I Benning, Ga. Duke Duke has been married twice previously, the last time for 14 years to actor John Astin. She has custody of their two sons, Sean, 12, and Mackenzie, 13. Wyman improving after surgery SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - Oscar- winning actress Jane Wyman continues to improve after abdominal surgery, but it will be another week before she can go home. Wyman, President Reagan's former wife who now stars as the sinister Angela Charming on CBS-TV's "Falcon Crest," entered St. John's Hospital on New Year's Day with flu-like symptoms. She underwent abdominal surgery for removal of an adhesion on her intestine Jan. 2 and celebrated her 72nd birthday in the hospital two days later. Jane Wyman Names became a bit confusing FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Newborn Brigitte Fargo is heading home to Moorhead, while Nicholas Morehead, who was born the same day in the same hospital, already has gone home to Fargo. The babies were born last week at Dakota Hospital in Fargo, which • borders on Moorhead, Minn. Tamara Fargo and Dorene Morehead took Lamaze childbirth classes together and were due to deliver eight days apart, but ended up having their babies within 14 hours of each other. Gunman takes over store, shoots two before turning gun on self Another whacky title is now his TOKYO (AP) — Ashrita Furman, who holds world records for somersaulting, hand-clapping and stretcher-bearing, claims to have chalked up another whacky title by hopping 11.5 miles on a pogo stick up and down Mount Fuji. Furman, 31, of New York, said it took 8% hours to jump 6.2 miles up the 12,460-foot mountain and 5.3 miles down. That broke a 10.5-mile mark he had set in New York that qualified him for an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records. Furman admitted he was "sore all over from jumping like an ostrich." The feat was documented by videotape and two witnesses. Furman, a health food store owner, is no stranger to Guinness records. In 1980 he somersaulted 10 miles through New York's Central Park, and in 1981 he clapped for 50 hours, 17 minutes, and was on a stretcher- bearing team that carried a 140- pound weight 127 miles, all benchmarks. ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - A man took a woman believed to be his wife hostage at a convenience store, fatally shot an employee and wounded another before killing himself Saturday, a day after he was served with divorce papers, police said. The hostage sneaked out of the store as the gunman talked to authorities on the telephone, and the man then fatally shot himself in the head, said police spokesman Jim Willett. The woman had been held at gunpoint for more than six hours after the gunman walked away from a drug-alcohol treatment center Saturday morning, Willett said. He had been served with divorce papers Friday, he said. The hostage called her family shortly after the incident began and told them the gunman "was desperate and she was afraid he wouldn't give up," Willet said. He would not identify the gunman or the hostage. The man "was extremely irate, profane" when he allowed police to enter the 7-Eleven store about 3% hours after the siege began to remove two store employees who had been shot, said Police Chief David Kunkle. "He was making comments that he wished he'd killed the man." Adventurers trace South Pole trip LONDON (AP) — Three Britons retracing the antarctic journey of explorer Robert F. Scott reached the South Pole on Saturday, but the ship sent to take them home was crushed by the ice and sunk, the expedition organizer said. Peter Christopherson, the London- based organizer, said Robert Swan 26, Roger Mear, 35, and Gareth Wood, 33, reached the pole at 11:53 p.m. local time after an 833-mile trek. He said no one was hurt in the loss of the ship, the Southern Quest, which had been moored at an ice floe near Cape Evans and the Jack Hayward base camp. Christopherson did not specify when the ship sank, but said all 24 crew were rescued from the ice by a U.S. helicopter from the American ship Polar Star and were taken to the U.S. base at McMurdo for medical checks. He said the single engine plane carried on the Southern Quest had been taken off before the accident, and would fly to the pole to pick up the men, according to plan. Pilot Giles Kershaw is to ferry two of the men back to base, then return to the pole to pick up the third man and the equipment, he said. Two other members of the expedition, Dr. Mike Stroud and cameraman John Tolson, waited at the base camp. The plan had called for the expedition to sail from Jack Hayward base back to Lyttleton, New Zealand, on the Southern Quest. Christopherson said new plans for the return trip had not yet been worked out. In 1911, Scott set off from Jack Hayward base, also on Nov. 2, and arrived at the pole Jan. 18, 1912, shortly after Norwegian Roald Amundsen became the first man to reach the pole. Scott and his four companions died on the return trip. Terry Palmer, 30, of Mansfield was dead on arrival at Arlington Memorial Hospital, said hospital spokeswoman Carlene Ness. Craig Talley, 25, of Arlington, was in fair condition with gunshot wounds to the arm, foot and leg, she said. Talley had "played possum," pretending to be unconscious, Willett said. "We suspect they were not random victims because he (the gunman) paid absolutely no attention to the customers in the store, and he became very irate when he discovered the man was not dead," Willett said. Mark Weathers, 15, one of about five customers inside the store, said he was playing video games when he saw a man with a black ski mask walk inside. "I thought, 'It ain't cold enough outside for a ski mask,'" he said. "Then I saw the black and silver .357 Magnum in his hand. After I saw the gun I ran out the door.'' He said he rode his bike down the street and called the police. "I heard two gunshots when I was leaving," Weathers said. "I didn't look back. I didn't want to. I thought he was shooting at me." The gunman was described as a white man in his mid-40s. Police said his only demand was that he see no uniformed officers. Police surrounded the store and blocked off traffic at the intersection where the store sits in a low-income neighborhood. Arlington is halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth.
