Marden Brown, 52, had pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual contact with a child, younger than 16. Circuit Judge Boyd Mc-Murchie ordered Brown to serve 15 years in prison on each count and said each sentence would be served consecutively. However, the judge suspended 15 years of the sentence on several conditions, including that Brown have no contact with children under age 18 and that he complete a sex offender treatment program. Brown also will be placed on supervised parole after his release from prison.

Kowalski will be deputy director of requirements in his fourth assignment to the Pentagon during his 25-year career. The new job involves looking at the Air Force's long-range needs and possible threats. "The office looks at what kind of things - such things as aircraft, upgrades and weapons -we need to get in our programs," said Kowalski, who also commands the 28th Bomb Wing at Ellsworth. He said his departure probably will be late next month or early in March. Col. Joseph Brown, vice wing commander at Ellsworth, will replace Kowalski. Col. David Crockett of Maxwell Air Force Base at Montgomery, Ala., will replace Brown as vice wing commander for the 28th Bomb Wing, which includes 29 B-1B Lancer long-range bombers.

Ross Kin-dermann, a math professor at South Dakota State University in Brookings, has a copy of the book that carefully describes the various correct uses of Victorian calling cards. He will talk about them at the first presentation of the 16th annual Brown Bag Lecture Series in Brookings. The free talks, sponsored by the South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum, will be the next six Fridays at the Old Sanctuary. Women used the cards for making social calls. Men used them for business. Politicians had their own cards, and they also were used simply among friends - some even with poems and other quotations imprinted on them. "They're a good insight into the customs of the ages," Kinder-mann said. One or more corners turned down conveyed certain meanings, said Patty Kratochvil, owner of Threads of Memories antique mall in Brookings. Depending on the type of card, it could mean the Brookings s , u Sioux Falls F A " C Events to mark anniversary of FROM STAFF REPORTS The 31st anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion will be marked Thursday with several events.

"These cards really show social graces of that time," she said. Kindermann has collected 750 cards from the late 1820s to just before World War I. He began his . collection 12 years ago when he found an old trunk at a store in Sioux Falls that had belonged to a card salesman. It was still filled with sample cards. One of his most valuable cards has "Mr. Cleveland" imprinted on it and the signature of President Grover Cleveland on the back. Kindermann, a Milwaukee native, said, "I have always been interested in old paper products like prints and postcards." Victorian calling cards were originally found primarily in the East. Only later, as the West was settled, did they appear in this region. One of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books has a chapter on affect men, women and families. For information, call 361-3500. Bishop Robert Carlson of the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls will preside at a noon Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral. Christ the King Catholic Church and First Assembly of God will host the annual ecumenical Prayer Rally and Walk for Love and Life.

His collection includes not only individual cards, which he stores in acetate-free windows to preserve them, but also sales sample books. He also has a few accompanying objects, such as a silver tray to receive cards and holders to carry them. Early cards were simple, with just the name and possibly a small design imprinted on them. Even in the days before offset and extensive color printing, the cards of later Victorian times were multicolored and quite ornate, including flowers and birds, and selling at a price much lower than what Kindermann must pay now for them. Some later cards changed from the usual rectangular shape to such complex shapes as fans. Some even had fringed edges. Rather than just being one Roe v. Wade taSouth Dakota clinic.

"Many cards also had room on the back for handwritten messages," Kindermann said. John Awald, museum director, said the lecture series tries to respond to audience interests, and museum personnel also actively search for ideas from newspaper stories.
