N EW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton, who made headlines for her imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt, unveiled a statue Saturday honoring the crusading first lady in the city where she was born and died. "When I last spoke with Mrs. Roosevelt she wanted me to tell all of you how pleased she is by this great, great new statue," Clinton joked to thousands who gathered for the unveiling in Manhattan's Riverside Park. The 8-foot bronze statue, the work of artist Penelope Jencks, depicts Roosevelt leaning against a rock, gazing in deep thought. It is part of a $1.3 million renovation of the southern entrance to park funded by public money and private donations — including one by Clinton herself. "It seems that wherever I go she has been there before me," Clinton said. "Whether it is visiting South America or South Asia, sewing on a union label at a garment factory here in New York City, writing a newspaper column or speaking at a political convention, I can always count on someone saying to me, 'Well, I remember when Mrs. Roosevelt did that.' There's a great deal of comfort in those words forme." Eleanor had a long tenure as first lady Roosevelt, a tireless worker for social causes, was first lady from 1933 to 1945, longer than any other. She was born in New York in 1884, taught classes in the city's settlement houses in the early 1900s, married Franklin D. Roosevelt here and was a delegate to the United Nations in the 1940s. She died here hi 1962. "Eleanor Roosevelt was a great role model," said Marjorie Long, who credited Eleanor Roosevelt with helping her break with her family's Republican tradition to become a Democrat. "She said what she meant.... She had strong convictions." T NATIONAL WOMEN'S HALL OF FAME The Associated Press First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton sits with Eleanor Roosevelt's grandson Franklin D. Roosevelt III during a ceremony unveiling the statue of Eleanor Roosevelt on Saturday in New York. Ten named to women's hall of fame Hall celebrates women who have fought for progress and freedom By The Associated Press SENECA FALLS, N.Y. — Maria Goeppert Mayer, the first American woman to win the Nobel Prize in physics, worked for 30 years in her field for little or no pay. Strict nepotism rules forbade the German immigrant from being hired as a professor as she followed her husband, Joseph, to university posts in Baltimore, New York and Chicago between 1930 and 1960. "They would not give a post to a man and his wife — these were laws left over from the Depression," her daughter, Maria Mayer Wentzel, said Saturday. "Of course, she wanted to continue her research and teaching, so she did a lot of voluntary work at the universities." By the time she was appointed a T BAD MOOSE DAY The Associated Press Mary Hallaran salutes after her induction into the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, N.Y., Saturday. full-time physicist at the University of California at San Diego in 1960, Mayer had developed the shell model of an atom's nucleus, a breakthrough that earned her the Nobel Prize in 1963. For that accomplishment, and for her silent battles against the injustices of the male-dominated field of science, Mayer was inducted with 10 other women Saturday into the National Women's Hall of Fame. The ceremonies take place annually in this upstate New York town where the first women's rights convention was held in 1848. The Hall of Fame honors women who have made valuable contributions to society and to the progress and freedom of women. Mayer died in 1972. Five others honored posthumously included Louisa May Alcott, whose "Little Women" remains a literature staple for young girls, and Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first U.S. citizen to be canonized a saint, mainly for her work on behalf of immigrants. Among the honorees in attendance was Maria Tallchief, 71, the American Indian ballerina best known for her performances in the 1950s and 1960s in the New York City Ballet. Anne Morrow Lindbergh, whose flights with her husband Charles laid the groundwork for modern aviation, could not attend for health reasons. The other inductees were: • Charlotte Anne Bunch, a femi- ; nist who raised awareness about | gender-based human rights. ' ; • Mary A. Hallaren, who chamr.,. pioned permanent status for? women in the military after Worldl War II as director of the Women's' " Army Corps. • Oveta Gulp Hobby (1905-1995),,, the first female to attain the rank.of ji colonel in the U.S. armed services. • Wilhelmina Cole Holladay, , founder of the National Museum of •* Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. • Ernestine Rose (1810-1892), an ' early advocate for women's rights i and the abolition of slavery. —Edith Wharton (1862-1937), a ' major American novelist of the > 20th century who was the first ••' woman to receive the Pulitzer •' Prize for fiction. Two moose mishaps in one day leave driver shaken By The Associated Press ISLAND POND, Vt. — Michael O'Keefe had what could be called a bad moose day. The 44-year-old machine operator felt lucky to escape with only a few scratches after two moose-related traffic accidents in one day. It began when he was driven to work by an uncle and his car slammed into a 700-pound moose on a foggy road in northeast Vermont early Sept. 29. The accident shattered the windshield and flattened the roof, but neither man was seriously hurt. The moose was killed. O'Keefe was treated for cuts and then went out to go apple picking. Five hours later, a still-shaken O'Keefe drove home alone in his pickup truck when an 800-pound moose came barreling toward him. "This giant moose came screaming out of the woods at a full gallop. I hit my brakes and blew my horn and cut the wheel," he said. The moose crashed into the front of the truck on the passenger side. "The antlers caught the top of the truck and his nose hit the windshield," O'Keefe said. "As he was coming down, I yanked my truck from under him so he'd land , on the highway." Game warden Paul Fink, who had just given the first moose to a slaughterhouse, was called in to kill the badly injured second animal. "Everybody around here has had their close calls," O'Keefe said. "My poor heart can't take much more." DEATHS & FUNERALS Arch Weaverling MANKATO — Arch Weaverling, 90, Mankato, died Friday, Oct. 4,1996, at Jewell County Hospital Long Term Care Unit, Mankato.
