Moammar Khadafy on Saturday invited President Reagan to visit him in his tent headquarters. "Yes, why not," Khadafy told six reporters during a two-hour interview in the tent at his heavily fortified barracks headquarters where he entertains friends as well as world leaders. "If Reagan comes here, he will change his mind," Khadafy said. "He would see that I don't live in trenches, wearing hand grenades in my belt; that it is not that I don't laugh or smile and have no family, and that I hate." "He would change, I know," Khadafy added. "I invite him through you." With the 43-year-old Khadafy during the interview were his wife Sophia, 32, and four of his eight children. Reagan has called Khadafy "the world's No. 1 terrorist" and accused him of supporting international terrorism, including the Dec. 27 attacks on the Rome and Vienna airports in which 19 people were killed. Five Americans and four terrorists were among those slain. Khadafy responded by calling Reagan "an Israeli dog," a harsh insult in the Arab world, and "a failed actor." He also has said Reagan is the chief source of trouble in the Middle East. Both the United States and Israel accused Libya of supporting Palestinian renegade Abu Nidal, and surviving terrorists of the airport attacks said they belonged to his organization. Libya's official JANA news agency called the attacks "heroic." Khadafy said later the attacks were "unlawful" and that they had hurt the Palestinian cause. In the interview, Khadafy cited a JANA report that said the Reagan administration had declared "a state of national emergency ... to face the Libyan threat." "We laugh when we hear about this, because we have no hostile intentions to do these dangerous things against the United States," Khadafy said. Earlier in the week he had threatened to send suicide squads to America if Israel or the United States attacked his North African nation. Russell man dies in truck crash RUSSELL — A 35-year-old Russell man was killed early Saturday in a one-car accident near Russell. Carroll Mudd, the owner of SOS Oil and Jetwell Services in Russell and the Tee-Box Restaurant in Hays, died at about 4 a.m. from injuries he sustained in an accident on Highway 40 west of Russell. Undersheriff Grover Williams reported that Mudd's truck was traveling east when it left the road, went into the south ditch for 120 feet, hit a field access road and went airborne. It struck a sign, crossed the highway and went into a field, turned sideways, slid for 800 feet and rolled over on its top. Williams said Mudd was thrown from the truck and the truck landed on him. Mudd died at the scene. Jacques named 125th coordinator Shjriey Jacques, Salina, has been appointed by Gov. John Carlin to coordinate the Saline County celebration marking the 125th anniversary of Kansas' statehood. Jacques is Saline County clerk. County coordinators are expected to serve as liaisons between the state-level Kansas Commission for the 125th and local groups, Carlin said in a statement distributed by the governor's press office. "The success of this celebration depends on the state, county and city units working together," he said. State-level observances of the 125th anniversary are scheduled in Topeka for Jan. 29, the date Kansas Jacques was admitted to the union in 1861. Other state and local celebrations are planned throughout 1986. /King LAWRENCE (AP) — A majority of Kansas voters wants a state lottery and pari-mutuel betting on horse racing, according to a poll performed by the University of Kansas Institute for Public Policy and Business Research. Poll results released Friday show, 63 percent of state voters approve of a lottery while 57 percent favored pari-mutuel betting on horses. The telephone poll was conducted among 626 Kansans aged 18 or older and selected randomly. Interviews were conducted between Jan. 4 and Jan. 6. The response rate was 74 percent, and the poll had an error margin of 4 percent. Ex-student sentenced LAWRENCE (AP) — A 25-year-old former University of Kansas student charged with tampering with a university computer in an attempt to alter a grade was sentenced Friday to 18 months in the Douglas County Jail. The former student, Kenneth Eisele, in November pleaded guilty to four counts of unlawfully gaining access to a computer, a court official said. (Continued from Page 1) as a federal holiday. That honor, until now, has belonged solely to the first president. Harry Truman called King a troublemaker, and J. Edgar Hoover, whose FBI sought to discredit him and sabotage his movement, once labeled him the most notorious liar in the country. Years later, Ronald Reagan balked at the notion that he deserved federal sainthood. But when Reagan finally signed the holiday legislation with King's widow, Coretta Scott King, at his side in 1983, the president declared that King had . "stirred our nation to the very depths of its soul." "If American history grows from two centuries to 20," said Reagan, "his words that day will never be forgotten." When King delivered that speech, 101 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, nine years after the Supreme Court declared dual school systems unconstitutional, he re* garded his work barely begun. It was still a time when restaurants and hotels could refuse to serve black patrons, when property owners refused to sell them homes, when state governments connived to deny them ballots and when police used dogs and water hoses and cattle prods to repress the peaceful protests King organized against all that. He was, then, only 34 years old, and would live just five more years before a white drifter shot him down in Memphis, Term. But he did live to see great progress since that day in the Capitol, including the passage of two landmark laws, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the same year he won the Nobel Peace Prize, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Some see irony in the fact that King, an apostle of nonviolence, died by the bullet. The truth is that he courted confrontations with those who fostered rage and ignorance. The street was his battleground, and he marched in hundreds of them, sometimes bloodied, and often wound up in jail for the opportunity to turn the other cheek while standing toe-to-toe with someone like Sheriff Jim Clark of Selma, Ala. "Our determination," he once said, "is not a brag, it is not a boast, it is not a thing we whistle up in the dark hours of the night when we know not from which direction a blow may fall — or an assassin's bullet may Meetings Correction Because of a Journal error, the time of the funeral was omitted from the obituary Saturday for Marie K. Helwer, 90, Sylvan Grove. The funeral will be at 2 p.m. Monday at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Sylvan Grove, with burial in the Sylvan Grove Cemetery. These are the government meetings scheduled for the week of Jan. 13 as compiled by the League of Women Voters of Salina. Meetings are open to the public and convene at the City-County Building, 300 W. Ash, unless otherwise noted. Monday Salina City Commission, 4 p.m., room 200.

To blacks who sought to share the buses with whites in Montgomery, Ala., King advised: "If cursed, do not curse back. If pushed, do not push back. If struck, do not strike back, but evidence love and goodwill at all times." King was born on Jan. 15,1929, in a middle-class, 12-room Atlanta home. He was named Michael Luther until he was 6, when his father, a preacher, prophetically renamed himself and his son after the Christian protester of the 16th Century. Martin graduated from high school at 15, attended Atlanta's Morehouse College, was one of six blacks in a student body of 100 at Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, Pa., and won a fellowship for his doctoral study at Boston University. He wrote his dissertation on "A Comparison of the Conceptions of God in the Thinking of Paul Tillich and Henry Nelson Wieman." He read the works of Hegel, Tillich, Reinhold Niebuhr, Henry David Thoreau and Mohandas K. Gandhi. From Thoreau he got the idea of civil disobedience: it was morally right to violate an unjust law; from Gandhi he got passive resistance, the idea that chased the British from India. But it was a tired black woman, Rosa Parks, who truly set him on the path that made him the pre-eminent leader of the civi rights revolution. On Dec. 1,1955, Parks, a seamstress, got on a bus, and in violation of the social norms of Montgomery, refused to take a back seat when a white man demanded the one she was in. King, then the pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, organized a 382-day boycott of the city's buses by blacks. When the boycott ended after the Supreme Court declared bus segregation unconstitutional, King was known — and notorious to many — throughout the South. The Montgomery experience led him to marches by the hundreds and jailhouses by the score. At lunch counters, theaters, department stores, colleges and libraries, he led sit-in protests against the South's thoroughly accepted racial segregation. In 1957 alone, he traveled 780,000 miles and made 208 speeches. His tactics, bold and unsettling when he first used them, only partly explained his success. His greatest gift, the uncanny quality which roused blacks to confront police dogs, billy clubs and tear gas, to echo the movement's fight song, "We Shall Overcome," was simply his own personal magnetism. In church, he would tell the faithful that "When the blood flows, let it be ours," and they would say "Amen." But he could walk into a tavern or a pool hall, say the same thing, and the blacks there would also say "Amen," and line up to drop their knives and brass knuckles into his sack. Rarely did the austere Dr. King unveil his wit. But it was there. In the 1964 Selma-to-Montgomery march, someone in the rear called to King: "Let's sing 'There is no Balm in Gilead.' " "Let's do," King answered. "And let's pray that there is no bomb in Montgomery." In 1965, King turned against the Vietnam War for draining resources from the poor. He was planning a "Poor Peoples' March" on Washington in 1968, when, on April 4, he was shot and killed as he stood on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, when he had gone to lead a demonstration in behalf of striking garbage men. A white ex-convict, James Earl Ray, pleaded guilty to the murder, but in 1978 a House committee concluded that the assassination probably was the result of a conspiracy that remains unearthed. King is buried in Atlanta. His tombstone bears his words: "Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I'm free at last." Holiday (Continued from Page 1) the first time that a black man has been so honored." The Rev. Tom Glenn, of the First Presbyterian Church, said he and other organizers hope the worship services and other events begining Monday and ending on the holiday will help educate Salinans by increasing awareness. "There is still much unfairness and prejudice," said Glenn. He said his all-white congregation will host worship services next Sunday to honor King and his accomplishments. The Rev. William Whitaker, of St. John's Baptist, said the gesture by the First Presbyterian congregation was in the true spirit of King. "Sin shackles all men," he said. "Christ saw no color and he died for all mankind. We all have souls." He said the efforts by black and white comunity leaders to plan a week of King activities had been "a lovely fellowship." "The emphasis needs to be placed on all humankind," he said. "Having a week of celebration will help let the community know that prejudice is ignorance." Events will take place at locations across the city. The schedule includes: Monday: 11:30 a.m., The Quayle United Methodist Church Choir will sing at the Leisure Years Center. 245 N.
