People "NOW LISTEN UP!" — Television commercial personality Clara Peller, a Chicago resident and avid Bears fan, sports a Bears jersey with the number of William "The Refrigerator" Perry as she awaits Sunday's Super Bowl. A poster of Perry is on the wall behind her. Princess tops 'worst-dressed'list ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) Mr. Blackwell has named Princess Stephanie of Monaco as the worst-dressed woman of 1985, saying her "unisex wardrobe entitles her to use either bathroom." Next on Blackwell's 26th annual list of the world's 10 worst- dressed women were actress Joan Collins of the television series "Dynasty" and rock star and actress Madonna, labeled "Skid Row's nomination for a poverty party centerpiece contest." In a departure from tradition, Blackwell also named actress Lauren Button "Fabulous Woman of the Year," and gave entertainer Liberace the "Halley's Comet" award for his "out-of-this-world, brilliant array of flashy, glitzy glamour." Blackwell, whose first name is Richard, first issued his list in 1960. It has become a Hollywood institution. Also named were rock singer Tina Turner, actress Michele Lee, actress Whoopi Goldberg, actress and former model Cybill Shepherd, actress and singer Lisa Hartman, actress Apollonia and actress Heather Thomas. Princess Stephanie rates the worst. Blackwell also named 10 women to his list of "Fabulous Fashion Independence of 1985." They included first lady Nancy Reagan; Raisa Gorbachev, wife of Soviet leader Mikhail Gor- bachev; Princess Caroline of Monaco, sister of Princess Stephanie; Diana, Princess of Wales; and actresses Jaclyn Smith, Meryl Streep, Mary Tyler Moore, Priscilla Presley, Jane Wyman and Jane Seymour. Anti-drug documentary*readied Bruce Weitz WASHINGTON (AP) — Bruce Weitz, the scruffy undercover cop Belker on "Hill Street Blues," joined with first lady Nancy Reagan to promote an anti-drug documentary. Mrs. Reagan, who is to appear in the May 7 public television broadcast of "Chemical People II," said at a White House reception that she hoped the effort would help those who have become "slaves to drugs." The program follows one televised in 1983 that helped inspire 8,000 anti-drug groups around the country. Both Weitz and Mrs. Reagan appeared in the initial broadcast.

Benjamin Studer, 5, who was missing, is ready to return home after he saw himself on TV. Missing boy sees himself on TV BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - A 5- year-old boy kidnapped a year ago was located after the child saw his picture on a television show about missing children and notified a baby sitter, authorities said Thursday. The baby sitter said she "nearly dropped dead" when the boy pointed out his picture on the NBC television show "Missing" Tuesday night. "He said, 'Look at me, I'm on TV,' " said the baby sitter, Pam Robinson, 30. "I tried to take his attention away by telling him it wasn't him, but he knew. They gave his name and everything." "I saw myself on TV and I told Pam," the boy told reporters at the Jefferson County Family Court. "People were missing on TV. I didn't run away." Police charged Benjamin Lester Studer, 33, of Covington, Ky., Tuesday night with kidnapping his son, Benjamin Lee "Buddy" Studer, from his ex-wife last year. Jennifer Studer said she After 3V2 years, 34 deaths/ police expect to get Green River killer SEATTLE (AP) — Capt. Frank Adamson says he doesn't know the name of the Green River killer, but he's certain the nation's worst current serial murder case will be solved and he hopes 1986 will be the year. In the 3% years since the first bodies were found in the Green River south of here, the unknown killer has slain 34 young women, mainly prostitutes or street people. Another 11 missing women are feared slain. Many of the victims were strangled. A cause of death cannot be established for all. Their remains have been found dumped in remote areas south and east of Seattle and in a suburb of Portland, Ore. "By this time next year I'm fairly optimistic we will have him in jail," Adamson told a reporter early this month, while surveying a rural ravine where the skeletons of two long-dead victims had just been found. Predictions like that make Adamson's boss, King County Sheriff Vern Thomas, a little nervous, and Adamson later hedged his outlook. Praising his detectives, he said, "I'm very optimistic their work will pay off sometime in the indefinite future — and I would suggest a prediction of this year is not too bad. "There's no doubt in my mind we will solve this case," the 44-year-old Adamson says. "I continually go back to the belief (the killer) is somewhere in our files.'' Through 1986 some $8.5 million in county, federal and state dollars have been committed to the case. The apparent two-year lull in the killing has allowed Adamson's investigators to eliminate 200 to 300 suspects, many of them men convicted of other murders, and to locate The Salina Journal P.O.BOIT4O ZlpCod«874O2 Published seven days a week, 365 days per year at 333 S. 4th, Salina, Kansas, by— Salina Journal, Inc.

Adamson says the Green River Task Force is concentrating these days on checking more than 50 "category A" suspects, men deemed worthy of immediate investigation. Adamson has headed the King County-funded task force since January 1984, when it was expanded from the small group that first wrestled with the case. In recent developments: • A 15-year-old Seattle girl abducted last September from a Portland, Ore., street and left for dead 30 miles outside the city provided a detailed description of her attacker.

Bexar County sheriff's officers found the body of John Cruz, 18, Wednesday afternoon, said Sgt. A. E. Ramon, who said Cruz had been shot once in the head at close range. No arrests had been made by early today, he said, and police had no suspects. "We had been watching it (the grave) for such a long time before we started spot-checking it," said Ramon. "During the day, it is difficult to have a team set up in broad daylight without being seen. "Also, we do have a manpower problem," he said. "We have a heavy caseload. And there was a budget problem, also." He said he could not elaborate on the staffing situation at the sheriff's office. Sheriff's deputies had been told Sunday about the two-foot-deep grave near the San Antonio river in south Bexar County and had kept a watch on it "pretty much" around the clock since then, Sheriff Harlon Copeland said. "We watched it for 24 hours for three days," said Ramon. "It got to a point that a lot of the work was getting backlogged and we had to come in. And we started spot- checking it. And the last time was when the body was dumped out there." Round-the-clock surveillance was called off at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Cruz was last seen early Wednesday, when he left his job at a convenience store, a co-worker said. The grave is about five miles from the store. The sheriff estimated the man was killed at the site Wednesday morning within two hours of when his body was found at 1:30 p.m. At 3:15 a.m., a man telephoned Cruz's family and said he had their son and wanted $26,000. The family received a second call about noon Wednesday from a man who said the ransom had increased to $30,000. The caller said he would call back at 3 p.m. to make arrangements for a money drop. That call was never made. Copeland maintained that the killer could not have known the grave was under surveillance. Cruz's family had received a $3.5 million settlement just months ago in connection with an auto accident that killed Cruz's father and one of his sisters, officials said. screamed with joy when she heard that her son had been found. "I watched the show because I knew he was going to be on there," she said. "You just pray something will happen. The Covington police came riding up to the house and said, "They found your son.' I started screaming." Jennifer Studer said she planned to drive to Birmingham Thursday to claim her son at a Bessemer church, where he is being cared for until his mother arrived. told police the attacker drove a dark- colored station wagon, outfitted like a taxi. The attack resembled the Green River slayings, fueling hopes the killer had finally made a mistake. The task force termed the case "a particularly strong lead.'' • Fourteen FBI agents have joined the case, bringing the size of the task force to 55. The agents, all veterans, are checking potential killers, Adamson says. • King County has approved a $2.5 million 1986 budget to maintain the task force at roughly the same level as 1984 and 1985.
