(AP) — Frank Borman, chairman and chief executive of Eastern Airlines, will be honored for his contributions to aviation. The 1986 Tony Jannus Award, named after the pilot who in 1914 began the world's first scheduled airline, will be presented at a banquet here March 28. Borman, an astronaut, began his career at Eastern in 1970 and became president, board chairman and chief executive officer six years later. Under his tenure, antiquated equipment was phased out, larger planes were purchased, and flight routes were extended beyond the East Coast.

Merrill picked as poet laureate HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Poet James Merrill's verses have earned him a Pulitzer Prize, two National Book Awards, the Bollingen and the Critics Circle Award. Now the Stonington native is Connecticut's first poet laureate. The Connecticut Commission on the Arts named him for the honor, which was created by the Legislature last year. An advisory panel recommended him from among dozens of nominees. Merrill, 59, will carry the title for life. James Merrill He'll pass celestial legacy to son PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Being teased about his name has been a family legacy for Halley Comet Reed III, his father and grandfather, but seeing his celestial namesake streak across the sky has made it all worthwhile, he says. "I look at it every night," said Reed, 17. "It just makes me feel good." Reed's grandfather, who lives in Chester, 111., was named for the comet when it made its last pass near the Earth 76 years ago. Although all three have been teased about it, the youngest Halley Comet Reed says he plans to pass the name to his first son, despite some good-natured opposition from his fiancee, Monte Yvonne Powe, 16. Jerry Lee Lewis, wife reconcile MEMPHIS, Term. (AP) — Rock 'n' roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis, whose private life is often as torrid as his piano playing, has withdrawn a divorce petition claiming his sixth wife wants to change his personality. Kerry Lewis said she and her husband began | talking about a reconciliation at a New Year's Eve j party marking her 23rd birthday. "He didn't want) nobody else kissing me at midnight," she said. She married Lewis in April 1984, less than a year] after the singer's 25-year-old fifth wife died of a drug f overdose. Lewis, 50, had claimed his wife tried to "re-forge 1 and re-constitute" his personality. Lewis ScofHawreturns The Salina Journal '59 ticket, no cash PORT ARTHUR, Texas (AP) — An overnight parking ticket issued in 1959, written by an officer who left the police force at least 20 years ago, arrived in the mail last week at the Port Arthur Police Department. The ticket was issed on a form discontinued at least 10 years ago and arrived in its original envelope. No payment was enclosed, however, and police had to pay 29 cents postage due. The ticket was issued at 3 p.m. on Oct. 27,1959. Officials said they had no idea who sent the ticket since there was no return address, and the ticket recorded only the license plate of the offending car, 1959 license RJ8011. Records don't go back that far. The officer who wrote the ticket, W.G. Morgan, left the police force to re-enter the Marine Corps and has ,, since retired. The violation fell under the ticket's category of "other," and didn't have a fine listed. Computer careers lose appeal with students LOS ANGELES (AP), — Fewer college freshmen plan careers in computers or engineering than a year ago, and the number who consider it very important to make a lot of money decreased for the first time in 15 years, a new study says. While business remained the most popular major, students are slowly returning to careers in education as a nationwide baby boomlet creates a teacher shortage — a turnabout from a decade earlier when there were more teachers than jobs and few people were entering the field, the study found. The study also found that while the majority of the freshmen still consider themselves middle-of-the-road politically, they have traditionally liberal views on such issues as disarmament, military spending, taxes, pollution and abortion. The 164-page report being released Monday was compiled by the Cooperative Institutional Research Program. It was sponsored by the American Council on Education and the University of Californa at Los Angeles graduate school of education. The study was based on surveys of 192,453 students, or a little over 1 percent of the fall 1985 freshman class of 1.66 million at 365 colleges and universities. One of the most surprising discoveries was the drop in interest in computer and engineering fields. "This declining interest in technological careers stands in stark contrast to the growing national concern for increased technological training and technological capacity in the American workforce," the report said. Only 4!4 percent of the freshmen indicated they intend to pursue careers as computer programmers or analysts, down from 6.1 percent in 1984 and a high of 8.8 percent in 1982. In engineering, the drop was less severe, declining to 10 percent in 1985 from 10.4 percent the previous year. Freshmen interest in the biological and physical sciences also waned slightly, while the humanities gained. Business remained the most popular major with 24.8 percent, up from 24 percent a year earlier and 21.3 percent in 1980. The survey found 6.2 percent planned on teaching careers, compared to 5.5 percent in 1984 and an all- time low of 4.7 percent in 1982. The highest level was 23.5 percent in 1968. In Washington, D.C., Howard Carroll, spokesman for the 1.7 million- member National Education Association, said he was encouraged by the increase in those planning to become teachers. "The trend is slowly getting started but it is significant," Carroll said. He pointed to overcrowding in schools and recent teacher shortages as a new generation of children begin entering elementary school. The number of students indicating it was essential or very important to be financially well off declined slightly to 70.9 percent, reversing 15 years of increases. In 1984, the percentage was 71.2 percent. But the new rate still remained far above the record 1970 low of about 39 percent. Uranium discharge leaks into air for three weeks PIKETON, Ohio (AP) - Radioactive material used to enrich uranium for nuclear reactors leaked for three weeks from a U.S. Department of Energy plant before being detected, but the company said Sunday that there were no abnormal levels in the air. The leak of 108.8 pounds of uranium hexafluoride was discovered Friday, said Tim Matchett of the Goodyear Atomic Corp., which operates the plant for the DOE. "There was no significant concentration (in the air)," Matchett said about air monitoring tests. "It provides further confirmation that there would be no adverse effects." He said air samples at the site and off-site showed normal readings during the three-week release, and that results of soil vegetation samples and additional air samples would be available early this week. The material apparently escaped as a gas through a vent at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant. The leak was discovered when data from a new air emissions monitoring system was checked, Matchett said. The material was "slightly more radioactive than that which would be found in nature." Uranium hexafluoride is used to enrich uranium for use in nuclear reactors. If ingested in harmful doses, the compound can cause liver damage and other illness.
