People The Salina Journal Sunday, January 26,1986 Page 2 MASSIVE MANICURE — Adam Gonzalez, a bill poster in El Paso, Texas, appears to be doing a manicure on a mammoth scale as he removes an old outdoor billboard ad. lacocca book 3rd on all-time list NEW YORK (AP) — Chrysler Corp. Chairman Lee lacocca's autobiography is the third-most successful general-interest book ever published, after "Gone With The Wind" and "Jonathon Livingston Seagull." "I never thought the day would come when they'd | be comparing me to Rhett Butler," lacocca said. Books like the Bible, dictionaries and cookbooks I have sold more copies, but Bantam Books spokesman Stuart Applebaum said they are listed as | reference rather than general-interest publications. The hardcover edition of "lacocca: An Autobiog-1 raphy" has entered its 51st printing, 15 months after' it went on sale, and set a publishing record with 2,610,000 copies in print. lacocca Only two hardcover books have been more successful: "Gone With the Wind" by Margaret Mitchell, with 6,015,000 copies printed since 1936, and "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" by Richard Bach, with 3,107,500 copies since 1970. Rocker defends 'Suicide Solution' LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Ozzy Osbourne defended his song "Suicide Solution" as a life-affirming song after parents of a teen-ager who killed himself filed a lawsuit against the heavy-metal rocker. "The song wasn't written for suicide. It was anti-suicide," Osbourne, 37, said. "It was about a friend of mine who killed himself on alcohol and drugs. 'Suicide Solution,' meaning solution as a liquid, not as a solution to the way out." He said the friend was Bon Scott of the Australian heavy metal group AC/DC, who died in London of acute alcohol poisoning in February 1980. The lawsuit was filed last October by the parents of John Daniel McCollum, 19, of Indio, who shot himself in October 1984 while listening to the song. Ozzy Osbourne Credibility of witness questioned LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The juror was not nearly as interested in a defense witness' testimony as he was in his shoes. Fred Scheiterlein of East Lansing, listening to evidence in a concealed weapons case, passed a note to the judge that the witness was wearing his shoes. "It was the darndest thing that ever happened in my courtroom," said Ingham County Circuit Judge James R. Giddings. Giddings said Scheiterlein identified the shoes from paint stains and the condition of their laces. He told lawyers and excused the juror. The witness was jailed pending arraignment on a theft charge. Tabloid stories distress Osmond PROVO, Utah (AP) - Entertainer Marie Osmond says she's hurt deeply by supermarket tabloids that portray her as a "wayward black sheep" who cares little for the principles of her Mormon faith. Osmond, 25, gave the keynote speech at a women's health conference where she told about 1,500 women that sensational stories "hurt me deeply, especially when they attack my motherhood, womanhood and beliefs." She was divorced last October from her husband of three years, former BYU basketball player Steve Craig, and was granted custody of their son, 2-year-old Stephen Craig. Marie Osmond Tavern cussing may become legal OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Tavern cussing may soon be legal in the state of Washington. Washington's 50-year-old liquor rules ban "profane and vulgar language'' in bars, taverns and restaurants with liquor licenses. But the House has approved legislation to prohibit the Liquor Control Board from passing regulations on the subject "except when there is a clear and present danger of disorderly conduct." Barrier is broken DETROIT (AP) — Mayor Coleman Young has become the first black member of the 80-year-old Detroit Golf Club. Club President Arthur Brooks said the 67-year-old mayor's application for "house membership" was granted Wednesday night by the club's 12- member board. He refused to release vote totals. "House membership" means that Young may use all the club's facilities except the golf course. The mayor does Coleman Young not play golf. Robber kept a date with the cops NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A 20-year-old man was arrested on robbery charges after showing up for a date with the woman he is accused of holding up at knifepoint. Janice Head, 35, an assistant restaurant manager, said she was robbed as she left work. The robber, who asked "personal questions" during the holdup, took her purse and then called later asking for a date. "I said I couldn't meet him then, but said if he would come back to the restaurant at 12:30 that night, I would be alone,'' she said. The police were waiting, and arrested George T. McClain of Nashville. /,; Soviet defector may be most valuable ever By The New York Times WASHINGTON - A high-ranking officer of the KGB fled the Soviet Union last year and may be the most valuable defector from the Soviet bloc to the United States in recent years, congressional sources said Saturday. The defector is providing information that "is much more important" than any provided by Vitaly S. Yurchenko, the turnabout Soviet defector who returned to Moscow last year, one congressional source said. Another described the defector as a senior Soviet officer of the KGB, the Soviet intelligence and security agency, who escaped by helicopter last spring from East Germany. According to that source, the officer was questioned at an American military base in West Germany before traveling to the United States, where he has assumed a new identity. The CIA would not confirm the reported defection. "We don't comment on defectors," said Kathy Pherson, an agency spokesman. Two of the congressional sources said the CIA had gone to great lengths to keep information about the new defector from being disclosed, largely because publicity might have upset the summit meeting in November between President Reagan and Mikhail S. Gorbachev, the Soviet leader. "He is better than Yurchenko," one of the sources said of the new defector. "I don't know his rank, but he was a high guy at the KGB." Although it is unclear what responsibilities the defector had in the Soviet Union, the source said the United States might now learn valuable information about the KGB's organization and management. Details of the defection were disclosed in the issue of the magazine U.S. News & World Report that goes on sale next week. American law-enforcement officials have said that Yurchenko provided tips that could lead to numerous arrests of Soviet spies working in the United States. Ronald W. Pelton, a former employee of the National Security Agency, who was reportedly identified by Yurchenko, is awaiting trial on espionage charges in Maryland. But there have also been accusations that Yur- chenko was a double agent sent to the United States to disrupt intelligence agencies here. In November he fled from his American handlers at a Washington restaurant and, after a news conference at which he accused the CIA of kidnapping him, he went home. The American intelligence agency has denied that Yurchenko was held against his will. South African mourners hack man to death JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) — Mourners at the funeral of a leading anti-apartheid black turned on a man suspected of being one of his killers and hacked him to death Saturday, returning to the church service chanting, "The dog is dead!" In another development, South Africa relaxed its border squeeze on Lesotho where a new, rightist military government began expelling refugees that South Africa argues are anti-apartheid guerrillas, official sources said. South Africa says its "bottom line" for good relations with Lesotho is expulsion of alleged guerrillas South Africa says belong to the African National Congress, the main force trying to topple its white-led government. Lesotho government sources, said some 60 refugees flew out on an Air Zimbabwe Viscount, but their destination was uncertain. The military leaders sezied control in Lesotho on Jan. 20. In the black township of Leandra 50 miles east of Johannesburg, about 5,000 people jammed in and around a church hall for the funeral of Chief Ample Mayisa, who was hacked and burned to death by a mob of blacks two weeks ago. During the ceremonies, blacks identified by mourners as Mayisa's killers hurled taunts and stones at the mourners, but fled into surrounding fields when chased by about 60 mourners armed with knives and clubs. Witnesses said the mourners cornered one man, hacked him to death and returned to the chapel in blood-stained dress suits chanting, "The dog is dead! The dog is dead!" Mayisa, an influential foe of apartheid, was to have served as a host the day after his death to Chester Crocker, the U.S. assistant secretary of state for African affairs, who toured riot areas. ' "That is the work of apartheid, that the community turns against itself," Anglican Bishop Simeon Nkoane said after the funeral. Apartheid is the system of legal segregation under which 5 million whites rule 24 million voteless blacks. Since September 1984, more than 1,000 people have been killed in racial violence. Leandra residents who witnessed Mayisa's killing said his attackers claimed they belonged to Inkatha, the Zulu political movement that supports peaceful means of dismantling apartheid. The 6 million Zulus are South Africa's largest ethnic group. Near Durban, a black man was killed Saturday when police tried to arrest stone-throwers, and an officer was stabbed in the shoulder. Earlier Saturday, the Randfontein Estates Gold Mine near Westonaria, west of Johannesburg, fired scores of black gold miners suspected of being involved in Tuesday's mob killing of two white policemen.
