(AP) — Getting a glacier named after him didn't leave a University of Maryland professor cold, but he admits, "There is probably less to it than meets the eye." The U.S. Board of Geographic Names recently honored Theodore J. Rosenberg by naming a glacier after him in recognition of the research he has done in Antarctica, where he and a team of scientists from the University of Maryland have been studying energy particles and electromagnetic waves. Rosenberg said he doesn't know what guidelines are used for naming places in Antarctica after people. Rosenberg said the glacier bearing his name is 750 miles west of Siple Station, a research area on the Palmer Peninsula in Antarctica. The professor said he doesn't know how big the glacier is, and doesn't ever expect to see it. BRIDGEPORT, W.Va, (AP) — A forgetful gunman returned to the savings and loan branch office he had just robbed to pick up a portable walkie talkie he left behind. The man entered a branch of the First Federal Savings and Loan bank in Clarksburg Friday afternoon, announced to the lone teller it was a holdup, and gave her a briefcase to fill with cash. After dashing out of the building with $2,500, police said, the gunman returned moments later to pick up the walkie talkie. BARROW, Alaska (AP) — U.S. scientists are tracking a pregnant polar bear who evidently has little respect for convention or international borders. The bear was tagged with a special radio transmitter by a federal research team last June as she wandered north of this Arctic coast community. But in September, she headed west and crossed the Bering Sea ice into Siberia. Her radio signals are coming in loud and clear from the Soviet Union via satellite for readings by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service researchers in Barrow. She was one of two bears tagged at the time, according to project leader Jack Lentfer. Lentfer said he has written his counterparts in Moscow, asking their help in tracking the bear or permission to follow her into Siberia to recover the transmitter. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — How does il feel being Dolly Parlon's younger sister? Stella Parton, a country music singer herself, is asked that almost every day she's on the road performing. "I lell them it feels good," Here's How Kansans Cast Votes WASHINGTON (AP) — Here are the 1977 ratings of members of Congress from [owa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska received from Public Citizen, a Ralph Nader- affiliated group which says it is pro-consumer. The ratings are based on 40 roll calls on such issues as consumer protection, oil and gas policy, atomic power, tax revision, ecology, government subsidies and government revisions. For instance, a rating of 90 percent means the member voted with the group's qwn views on 36 of the 40 votes. Here are the ratings of House members: IOWA Democrats — Bedell 75; Blouin 75; Harkin 75; Smith 45. Republicans — Grassley 28; Leach 50. KANSAS / Democrats — Glickman 65; Keys 80. Republicans — Sebelius 8; Skubitz 15; Winn 15. MISSOURI Democrats — Boiling 53; Burlison 60; Clay 70; Gephardt 78; Ichord 23; Skellon 33; Volkmer 58; YoungDemocral — Baucus 70. — Coleman 33; Taylor 15. NEBRASKA Democrat — Cavanaugh 70. Republicans — Smith 23; Thone 25. The Public Citizen ratings for senators include: IOWA: Clark, D 90; Culver, D 88. KANSAS: Dole, R 23; Pearson, R 33. MISSOURI: Eagleton, D 70; Danforth, R 28. NEBRASKA: Zorinsky, D 53; Curtis, R 5. she said. "What more can I say?" Stella, who has been to hairdresser's school, could spend a-glamorous and exciting life working on sister Dolly's wondrous wigs. But she prefers a country music career of her own despite the dilemma of carving an identity separate from Dolly's. She's making inroads on her sibling's spotlight. Her last single, "Danger of a Stranger," was a moderate hit in the United States and abroad. She also has recorded her second album, "Stella Parton Country Sweet," and recently began work on a third. Her popularity has reached the point that Tammy Wynelte called a West Palm Beach, Fla., radio station last spring while in Florida and requested one of Stella's songs. But success has brought out detractors. She's capitalizing on her famous name, some say. Others speculate that Dolly has helped her. The truth is that Stella has not asked her sister for favors and Dolly hasn't offered any. "It wouldn't have been fair if I'd have asked her," said Stella, four years younger than Dolly. They hardly ever see each other. They checked separately into the same Los Angeles hotel recently and neither knew the other was there. When they do get together, cooking, rather than careers, is a major topic of conversation. Then there are the comparisons: singing style, appearance, everything. Stella regards the comparisons disguised expectations of greatness —as compliments. "I'm me and she's her," she said in an interview in her record company office. "Everybody is doing their own thing. There's room for both of us, but not for two Dollys." She's shorter and slimmer than Dolly, appearing as fragile as a snowflake. Their voices are somewhat alike and both have dimples. While Dolly is enamored with wigs, Stella is fascinated by hats. She owns 200. Stella shows indications of the Parlon ambition. She keeps all her press clippings and diligently writes thank you notes to fans. Like her sister, she moved to Nashville from her family home near the Smoky Mountains right after graduating from high school. Her first hit was "I Want To Hold You In My Dreams Tonight" in 1975 (Published in The Garden City Telegram on the 28 day of November, 19771 ORDINANCE NO. 1262 AN ORDINANCE RELATING TO CHANGING THE NAME OF CERTAIN STREETS IN THE CITY OF GARDEN CITY; KANSAS.

NORTH OF 5 POINTS Garden City Ex-Soaper Back To TV Suffering By JAY SHARBUTT AP Television Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - For three years, Donna Mills was in a soap opera, "Love is a Many Splendored Thing." As Mrs. Laura Elliott, she says, she suffered a lot, as is the custom in soap operadom. Her husband dallied with an older woman. She got pregnant, but lost the baby. She ran off with a merchant seaman. She lost her memory. She stole her sister's baby. She also had a bad car accident. It was at this point, smiled Miss Mills, an attractive, blonde-haired, blue-eyed native of Chicago, "I had to leave. I couldn't take it any more." But tonight she resumes her suffering. This time, it is as a Los Angeles police detective on the run in a two-hour NBC movie, "The Hunted Lady." The show, which she hopes will become a series, was produced by Quinn Martin. Martin is the chap who in 1963 began "The Fugitive," in which David Janssen played a doctor on the lam. Tonight's effort may seem just warmed over lam, but Miss Mills says there are differences. Her fugitive character is not just running from the law (she was framed by the mob after she investigated a politician the mob secretly owned). She Kansas Book Available Again TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The stale Historical Society says a reprint of its popular illustrated Kansas history book entitled, "Kansas—The 34th Star," is again available in a reprint edition. The first edition published in 1976 was quickly sold out. It is largely a history of Kansas through photographs, drawings and maps and was sponsored by the Kansas American Revolution Bicentennial Commission, the governor's office and the Legislature. The book will be available in bookstores, but also can be ordered for $6, plus $1 for handling, through the society's office at 120 W. 10th St., Topeka, 66612. also is being chased by a mob hit man, whose marching orders are: "Find her, silence her." But the big difference, she says, is an obvious one, "the difference between a man running and a woman running, a woman alone on the road, trying to get jobs and coping with living alone." In the show's grand finale, she added, she'll still be on the run, which would set the stage for a series if NBC says keep running. If such happens, it wouldn't be her first prime time series. A few years ago, after playing Clint Eastwood's old flame in "Play Misty For Me," she co-starred in a short-lived comedy, "The Good Life." "It was fun while it lasted, but after that I got offered every comedy pilot in the world," she said. "But I turned them all down because I didn't want to get typed as a comedy actress. "But then," she grinned, "I started doing a lot of 'victim' roles for some reason." She TUESDAY NIGHT SPECIAL BAR B-QUE RIBS $189 INCLUDES POTATO & TOAST 1 FREE HEFILL ON ALL BEVERAGES SERVING FROM 11 HIV! TO a HM OF NORTH HIGHWAY 83 GARDEN CITY had reference to TV movies involving a damsel, her, in dire distress. After this, she said, "I started being more selective and went for a wide variety of roles, even as a killer." Miss Mills, soft-spoken and pleasant in manner, has logged 20 credits in as many TV movies since "The Good Life" expired. In fact, she just finished one, a Super Bowl thriller for ABC. By coincidence, David Janssen, the first "Fugitive," was in it. "I'd never met him before," she said. "I told him I was doing a pilot, a 'Fugitive' kind of thing, and we talked a lot about it. He thought it was a terrific idea, a good premise for a series." Janssen has said he'd never return to the grind of a weekly series. Perchance he counseled against such to Miss Mills? "No, no," she said. "He said — well, the only tip he gave me was, 'Just make sure you have good scripts.'" 1 To any of these towns, you get same-day delivery!
