People SHUFFLIN' ON DOWN — Second-grade students from Chicago's St. Stephen's School dress the part to demonstrate the Super Bowl Shuffle during an appearance on a Chicago TV show. The Shuffle is a song and video recording by some of the Bears players that has become a best-seller in Chicago. Student joins Dizzy for a 'rap' NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Dizzy Gillespie got a standing ovation from a high school audience, but the most enthusiastic cheers went to a student the be-bop trumpeter invited onstage to perform a "rap." Gillespie, featured in the first of a series of workshops and evening concerts designed to teach New Orleans students about jazz, didn't understand at first when Dewayne Clipps asked what he thinks of rap. "Rap is a personal friend of mine," answered Gillespie, 68. The 900 or so students in Booker T. Washington High School's auditorium burst into laughter, realizing that he was talking about black activist H. Rap Brown. Pianist Ellis Marsalis, who performed with a trio of young musicians as Gillespie's backup group, explained that Gillespie had missed the meaning of Clipps' question. "It's rap music you're speaking of!" Gillespie exclaimed, his eyes opening wide. "I like that. I like Dizzy Gillespie the words they put to it. You do that?" Clipps, a 16-year-old sophomore at Clark High School, nodded. Gillespie then invited him on stage. To the accompaniment of quick cymbal taps by drummer Noel Kendrix, Clipps rattled off a minute or so of the fast-paced rhymed verse known as rap. Rogers eyes Hawaiian home site HONOLULU (AP) — Entertainer Kenny Rogers has applied for a home site on the Hawaiian Island of Lanai. David R.

(AP) - A man's check for $2.5 million in unpaid 1984 income taxes set the record for New York State's tax amnesty program. Tax Department workers were staggered when the check arrived in Albany. Officials estimated the New York City man's income for 1984 was between $24 million and $28 million. Part of the check total included $167,000 in interest. But if the man hadn't used the amnesty program and had been audited, he could also have faced more than $600,000 in penalties. Since the amnesty program began Nov. 1,1985, more than $83 million has been paid in. Travolta's historic ranch for sale SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — Actor John Travolta wants to sell his historic ranch near this coastal community for $3.9 million.

Long-wed couple get to share bed JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A couple wed more than 50 years who faced eviction from a nursing home because they wanted to share a bed will instead be permitted to remain there in a private room. Gena Willis, 87, and his 86-year-old wife, Marie, had disturbed others at the Community Nursing Home because they wanted to sleep in Willis' bed in the room he shared with three other men. The home will turn an employee break room into a private bedroom for the couple, said Mendal Kemp of the state Health Care Commission. Three weeks ago, the Willises were asked to find a new home. Nurses said Willis was calling for his wife in the night, and she joined him in his bed. The home also said they violated Health Care Commission regulations by disrupting the health and safety of others. The home, which cares for impoverished patients, normally does net have private facilities.

Some charges against Goetz are dismissed NEW YORK (AP) — Attempted murder and assault charges were dropped Thursday against subway gunman Bernhard Goetz by a judge who ordered the case presented to a third grand jury. Three charges of criminal posses-' sion of a weapon were retained against Goetz, who' said he shot four youths on a subway train more than a year ago' when he believed they were about to rob him. The four counts of attempted murder and four counts of assault were dropped by Judge Stephen Crane because of a "prejudicial error" in instructing the second grand jury that indicted Goetz, according to court papers released by Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau. Crane also said the charges should be dropped due to developments Goetz "concerning one or more of the 'victims,' necessitating a superseding indictment." The developments Crane apparently was referring to were recent reports of statements made by one of the victims that the four youths were in fact planning to rob Goetz. Crane severed the original weapons charges brought by the first grand jury on Jan. 25,1985, from the more serious charges contained in a second indictment returned March 27. The shootings occurred Dec. 22, 1984, when Goetz stepped on a subway train. He sat down and was approached by a black man who either asked for or demanded $5. Goetz pulled a revolver, said, "I have $5 for each of you," and began shooting. He fled before police arrived and surrendered nine days later in Concord, N.H. "I responded viciously and savagely ... just like a rat," Goetz said in a later telephone conversation with a neighbor. Industrial production jumps in December By The New York Times WASHINGTON — Output at the nation's factories, mines and utilities rose 0.7 percent last month, the second strong monthly advance in a row, the Federal Reserve Board said Thursday. Analysts said the industrial production figures showed that the economy was picking up momentum, as earlier figures on employment and retail sales in December had suggested. Some analysts said that the stimulative effects of a falling dollar were clearly taking hold. "A lot of things are falling into place," said David Hale, chief economist for Kemper Financial Services, a Chicago-based insurance company. "We're now back in the close to 4 percent growth range." The Commerce Department .last month estimated fourth-quarter growth to be at a 3.2 percent annual rate, raising the overall 1985 expansion to 2.4 percent. Thursday's report reflected strength in nearly all areas of manufacturing, which was up 0.8 percent, as well as in the output of utilities and mines. The Federal Reserve also reported that revised figures showed a November gain in industrial activity of 0.6 percent, instead of the 0.4 percent gain originally reported. White House spokesman Larry Speakes said the "sizable" two- month gain in industrial output "combines with other data to show that 1986 will indeed be a good year for the economy." The administration has adopted a 4 percent overall economic growth target for 1986, strong enough, if realized, to further reduce unemployment. The December unemployment rate, reported last week, was 6.8 percent. Rain, fog delay return of hard-luck Columbia SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) — Rain and fog in Florida kept luckless Columbia from landing Thursday, and NASA said failure to bring the shuttle back to its home port Friday would force cancellation of a March flight devoted to Halley's comet. The astronauts, who endured a record seven delays before finally launching their mission Sunday, were instructed to aim toward about a 6:15 a.m. CST landing today at Kennedy Space Center. But National Aeronautics and Space Administration officials said the Florida weather forecast was uncertain and it was expected to be even worse on Saturday. Included among the crew is former Salinan Steve Hawley. Officials said if the prospects appeared dim for Columbia being able to land in Florida on Friday or Saturday, it would be diverted to Edwards Air Force Base in California, landing there about 7:40 a.m. today. Columbia's planned landing on Thursday was canceled just 19 minutes before mission commander Robert Gibson was to trigger rocket engine firings that would drop the winged craft out of orbit. "We will wave off for 24 hours," Mission Control communicator Fred Gregory 41he astronauts. "You're no- go for the deorbit burn," "Understand, Fred," Gibson said. The wave-off Thursday was the eighth operational delay for Columbia's flight. Launch of the mission was postponed seven times over 25 days before it lifted off last Sunday. The delays put NASA into a tight schedule bind to meet the agency's goal this year of launching 15 shuttle flights, including the comet study mission. Columbia is scheduled to be launched again on March 6, carrying into orbit an array of instruments focused on Halley's comet.
