BSU's best chests will aid charities Ball State news bureau The best-looking chest at Ball State helps raise money for charity in October. Students are helping students and the community with a Chest King pageant, fun run, slam dunk contest and other activities at this year's Campus Chest fund drive at Ball State. The man with the best-looking chest on campus will be named Oct. 25. Pictures of the contestants' chests (neck to navel) will be on display at the corner of McKinley and Riverside (or the Student Center in case of rain) Oct. 23-25. Students will drop pennies in jars to vote for the best looking chest, said chairman Jaynie Eubanks.

THE MUNCIE EVENING PRESS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1989 SUSPECT, WOMAN HAND-IN-HAND WHEN HE'S ARRESTED PAGE 11 Spurned boyfriend held in kidnapping WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) A Fort Wayne, Ind., man is held without bond, charged with kidnapping an ex-girlfriend from her home in Sullivan, Ind., authorities said. Jody Lamont James, 25, was walking hand-in-hand with Dorothy Lynn Quillen, 19, when the FBI moved in Wednesday night to arrest him in her disappearance, FBI spokesmen said. James denies he forced the woman to come with him from Indiana. James waived removal Thursday in an appearance before U.S. Magistrate Ann Vitunac and was remanded to federal marshals for transportation to Indiana. Prosecutors said James was still on probation for kidnap, assault and armed robbery convictions in California in 1982. Quillen spent the night in West Palm Beach and flew home Thursday morning, said FBI spokesman Paul Miller in Miami. "Physically, there were no outward injuries to her," he said. "She is very afraid of this individual." An FBI special-weapons team had staked out the West Palm Beach Auditorium after learning James would show up to apply for a job, and Quillen was with him. The FBI charged James burst into a Sullivan house with a handgun Sept. 30, ordered everyone to "get down," and dragged the woman out to his car. Investigators determined the pair had been staying with James's relatives in West Palm Beach since last weekend) Police said James and Quillen met a year ago when she lived in Fort Wayne, and she recently moved to Sullivan to get away from him. James was arrested on a federal kidnap warrant issued Oct 3 in Fort Wayne and faces related charges in Indiana and Illinois, Ervin said. The federal charge carries a possible life sentence. Hoosier among astronauts to be honored Stepmom gets probation in child's death CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) Indiana's Virgil I. "Gus" Gris-som and 13 other astronauts who died while pursuing the goals of the space program will be memorialized with a "Space Mirror" monument for which ground has been broken. " Grissom's son, Gary Mark Gris-som, said it was "about time" they got around to building a memorial. 1 "When I was younger, I thought NASA would do something. It's a shame that it has taken this long," Grissom said. His father, from Mitchell, Ind., was the second American in space and died with two other Apollo 1 crew members in a 1967 launch pad fire. A member of each of the astronauts' families was on hand at a ceremony Wednesday at Kennedy Space Center to place a star on the cornerstone of the Astronaut Memorial, inspired by the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger. "To Those Who Gave Their Lives To Bring The Stars A Little Closer," read a plaque unveiled on the cornerstone for the $5 million memorial, to be completed next year. "We honor their courage, because so few of us are courageous. We honor their knowledge, because so few of us can understand the unknown. We honor their quest, because it is the way to the future," said Alan C. Helman, founder of the Astronauts Memorial Foundation. The "Space Mirror" will be 42 Vi feet high by 50 feet wide, constructed of mirror-finished granite with the names of the 14 cut through its surface like a stencil. Listed with Grissom will be Challenger crew members Dick Scobee, Michael J. Smith, Ronald E. McNair, Ellison S. Onizuka, Judith A. Resnik, Gregory B. Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe; Grissom's fellow Apollo 1 crew members Edward H. White II and Roger B. Chaffee; and astronauts killed in T-38 training accidents: Theodore C. Freeman, Charles A. Bassett, Elliot M. See Jr. and Clifton C. Williams. . Now you know ... Coal wasn't used as fuel until the 12th century, though it had been used for sculpture before then. Most of the funds were provided by the sale of Challenger license plates in Florida. WANTED Nazis and Japanese Souvenirs Wanted by private licensed collector. All types.

(AP) - A Winona Lake woman who pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent child in the death of her 4-year-old stepson was sentenced to a year on probation. Kosciusko Circuit Court Judge Richard Sand sentenced Sean M. Cox, 33, who originally was charged with reckless homicide and felony neglect of a dependent child. "This wasn't an abuse case. It was a tragic accident," Sand said. Cox was accused of shaking Larry Cox Jr. on July 28, 1988, after she found him with some children's aspirin she had told him to leave alone.' When Cox shook him, the child's head hit a wall, authorities said. The child acted listless after he hit his head, but did not become unconscious, authorities said. A few hours later, when the child's condition worsened, Cox took him to the hospital, authorities said. The boy died two days later. A Kosciusko County grand jury indicted Cox in August 1988.
