2 Women Win Gold Medals In College ROTC Programs The AmeeiMtti Prett GAINESVILLE Once an all-male bastion, the Reserve Officer Training Corps at the University of Florida has changed so much that two of the three outstanding senior cadets this year are women. ' Janet Strong is the Army winner, Jennifer A. Lewis the Navy winner and Norman W. Hoyt Jr. the Air Force winner. Men still lead in the number of cadets by a heavy proportion, bow-ever. Selection of outstanding seniors is made by military science professors, and the gold medal awards are given by the Daughters of the American Revolution. Miss Strong, 21, of St Petersburg, described her approach as, "The object is to do everything the guys do pull your own weight but not to make a fool out of yourself if you can't do something and need to ask for help." She plans to make the Army a career and will be assigned to Fort Gordon, Ga. "I would like to go to Germany from Georgia because I lived there for five years and also because I like to travel," she said. She already has completed parachute school. "There were 12 girls out of 300 people at the school," she said. "Only four of us made it." A cadet major and executive officer of her 175-member battalion, Miss Strong said she had no special leadership problems. "You have to make a little more effort than the guys because you have to prove yourself first," she said. "Sometimes there are personality conflicts but you have to keep them separate from your professional duties." Miss Lewis, 21, a midshipman from Key West, didn't join the ROTC program until her junior year. Consistently in the top 5 percent of her class in military standing, she is an industrial and systems engineering student After graduation and commissioning as an ensign she hopes to be accepted for pilot training. "They only process women once a year, and they only accept 15 women into the program," Miss Lewis said. "I won't know until next fall if I will be going. If I don't make it I'd like to do something with aviation intelligence." FOR CONVENIENT HOME DELIVERY CALL 761-4610 State Digest Fifth Pot Boat Seized In Four Days News Wire Service MIAMI Two Florida men have been arrested in the area's fifth "pot boat" seizure in four days, the U.S. Coast Guard says. The Key West fishing boat "Charles M." was being towed to San Juan, P.R., after it was discovered loaded with 17 tons of marijuana, the Guard said. Arrested on pot smuggling charges were James Swope Jr., 33, of Miami, and Clinton Hayes, 25, of Tallahassee. Also arrested were Stephen Black, 31, of Seal Beach, Calif., and Ron Auth, 31, no address available. Meanwhile, VS. Customs spokesman Jim Dingf elder said 41 pounds of cocaine, value estimated at 111 million, was confiscated from a Colombian freighter anchored here yesterday. Report Cites Illegal Variances TALLAHASSEE Natural Resources Director Jay Landers planned to meet with Cabinet members today about a report indicating his predecessor knowingly recommended approval of construction that violated state law. The report detailed six violations that allegedly occurred before the Cabinet granted variances for construction at beachfront motels owned by friends of suspended Natural Resources Director Harmon Shields. One Panama City motel was owned by Shields' longtime friend Charles Hilton, and a Fort Walton Beach motel was partly owned by powerful Senate Rules Chairman Dempsey Barron. The Cabinet asked for the report after the St Petersburg Times reported DNR officials permitted illegal expansion at the motels and then drafted after-the-fact zoning applications for Cabinet approval. Shuttle Launch Is Delayed Again CAPE CANAVERAL A special space agency inspection team is still probing records of the troubled Space Shuttle program that is $475 million over budget and officials say delays will postpone the Columbia launch until sometime next year. The Space Shuttle Columbia was originally scheduled for blastoff from the Kennedy Space Center Nov. 9 but the lagging installation of special ceramic tiles comprising the heat shield has put the National Aeronautics and Space Administration far behind. Deputy's Killer Given Life Term FORT MYERS A 16-year-old runaway from Indiana was sentenced to life in prison yesterday for the murder of a Lee County Sheriff's deputy. Circuit Judge Jack Schoonover imposed the sentence on Donald David Dillbeck after Dillbeck confessed to the April 11 murder of deputy Lynn Hall. Dillbeck, a recent runaway from Anderson, Ind., will not be elgible for parole for 25 years. Hall was shot in the head and back with his own revolver while on patrol at Fort Myers Beach. Dillbeck said Hall awakened him as he was sleeping in a stolen car. "He threw me down on the ground and I reached up and pulled his gun from his holster and shot him," Dillbeck said. He was arrested seven hours later, a few hours after Hall died. to all HOTEL, t8W8. QfBS tyiySSP-Si WE if . that wil be told to public m tow at $2.99 8a Yd. Mem welcome.
