The awards were sponsored by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference founded by ' King. The Drum Major for Justice "awards take their name from King's statement, "Just remember me as a drum major for justice." In accepting his award, Gre- Lewis gory said, "You Gregory know Martin and all of us hit that door in the 1960s in a way tha.t they'll never be able to close it again. Nothing but light is coming through that door now." Austrian honored by architects Hanz Hollein NEW YORK (AP) - Austrian architect Hanz Hollein, 51, who won the most prestigious award in his field, is known for buildings that include a touch of fancy. The winner of the $100,000 1985 Pritzker Architecture Prize has had only two commissions in the United States, both noted for their entrances. A Manhattan art gallery features a chrome-plated cylinder at the bottom of the cubistic stucco facade and a doorway to a Fifth Avenue shop has arches downward, instead of upward. About 400 architects were considered for the Pritzker. Cupid can't convince the judge PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — A judge has ordered a 38-year-old man with an infatuation for Chris Evert Lloyd to keep away from the world's No. 2 female tennis player or face a jail term. John Mallouk says he fell in love with Lloyd the first time he saw her 14 years ago and has written at least 200 love letters to her. The Ford Challenge Cup tournament last weekend was only a few blocks from Mallouk's villa. At the request of tournament officials, Circuit Judge Thomas Sholts barred Mallouk from the event. "Everything has been taken care of," was all Lloyd, 30, would say. Chris Evert Lloyd Kerrey joins symphony in concert OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Gov. Bob Kerrey joined the Omaha Symphony on stage, reading poetry selections that accompanied two pieces in a 90-minute family concert before a nearly full house in the 2,750-seat Orpheum Theater. Kerrey told the audience he was glad to honor a request to take part in the symphony's salute to animals in a performance of Camille Saint-Saens' "Carnival of Animals." "My response was, when the Legislature's in session, that's all I do is partic- Bob Kerrey i pa te in a carnival of animals," he said. French honors for Brigitte Bardot PARIS (AP) - Actress Brigitte Bardot, 50, was named a chevalier of the French Legion of Honor for her "36 years of cinematographic activity." Bardot retired from films in 1973 and has spent much of her time since in semi-seclusion in St. Tropez. Her principal public activity has been as a champion for animal rights. Meanwhile, Bardot has ordered her lawyers to sue singer Sacha Distel for publishing details about their life together in the early 1960s that she alleges are overly intimate. Brigitte Bardot Teacher tardy; fees refunded KIRTLAND, Ohio (AP) — Five students who complained their physics instructor was chronically late to class will get back the money they paid for the course last semester, trustees at Lakeland Community College have ruled. Lakeland President James Catanzaro said the students would get refunds of about $100 each but that the teacher, Emin G. Turker, would not be penalized because of his good past record. "I think it's a very good statement about the quality of education today that the students were so concerned," Catanzaro said. JL 11C kJdAA**** v %»»••• •••— — • Foster parents face abuse charges in death of 2-year-old daughter The Salina Journal Tuesday, April 9,1985 Page 2 NEPTUNE, N.J. (AP) - The short, sad life of Rosa Swain began in a roach-infested apartment with a mother who 10 years earlier had beaten another infant daughter to death. When Rosa was 2 months old, her mother broke her legs. Welfare workers took her from her home and placed her in a succession of foster homes during the next 18 months, until she went to live with a couple who said they wanted to adopt her. A month shy of her third birthday, Rosa died, and her foster parents have been charged with murder. The head of the state's child welfare agency says he has determined that Rosa's placement with foster parents was handled "responsibly." "Yet we had a child die," said Thomas Blatner, director of the Division of Youth and Family Services. "If you don't have a procedural flaw to blame, it's even harder." Rosa's mother, Margaret Delores Caine, had been found guilty in Virginia in 1972 of involuntary manslaughter in the beating death of a 2-week-old daughter. She was sentenced to three years on probation, changed her name and moved to Trenton. Rosa, born Jan. 27, 1982, spent "If you put 1,000 people in a lineup, she would have been the 999th to be picked as a possible child abuser." —Edward Hunter her first weeks in an apartment described as "a real hellhole" by Edward Hunter, Caine's public defender. Also in the household then were Rosa's father, George Swain, and 4- year-old Ashley, Caine's son from another relationship. Hunter described Caine as "quiet and softspoken." "If you put 1,000 people in a lineup, she would have been the 999th to be picked as a possible child abuser," he said. But on March 30, 1982, Rosa was hospitalized. Assistant Mercer County Prosecutor Kim Otis said the child had a broken femur in one leg, a broken ankle on the other leg, several cracked ribs and traces of other untreated injuries. Caine pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and is now serving a 10-year sentence at the state prison for women. Rosa and Ashley were placed in two foster homes before going to live with Susie and Herbert Holloway on Nov. 16,1984. Then on Dec. 15, Neptune police Capt. Vincent Martin said, Susie Holloway called for assistance. "When the officer arrived, he was told by Mrs. Holloway that the child had stopped breathing," Martin said. Monmouth County Prosecutor John Kaye will not comment on the case now, but has been quoted as saying Rosa "was beaten continuously over a long period of time." He has said she died of edema, a swelling of the brain caused by head injuries. The Holloways had adopted an infant son, Jason, in August 1983, and took in Rosa and Ashley with the intent of gaining permanent custody. Following a two-month investigation, an eight-count indictment was handed up Feb. 25, charging the Holloways with murder, endangering the welfare of a child, child abuse and child cruelty. They pleaded not guilty March 4 and were released on $160,000 bail each two days later. Jason and Ashley were moved to separate foster homes. Town votes to become sanctuary CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — The Cambridge City Council, after a noisy hearing before 200 supporters, voted 5-4 Monday night to declare the entire city a sanctuary to Latin American refugees. Under the resolution, city agencies and employees will not cooperate with federal efforts to expel the estimated 5,000 illegal immigrants from El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti who have fled to this university city of about 95,000 residents. The resolution also would extend city services to all Cambridge residents, whether or not they are U.S. citizens. Proponents said refugees, worried they will be forced to prove citizenship, may not be seeking medical treatment or education for their children. City attorney Russell Higbee said that in his opinion the vote is not binding. But one of its sponsors, council member David Sullivan, said he thought it was binding in the sense that it ordered city officials not to cooperate with federal officials. Jury selection begins in von Bulow trial PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) Twenty-nine people were dismissed Monday as jury selection began for Claus von Bulow's retrial on charges of twice trying to kill his wife. Only five of those left in the jury pool indicated, they were not familiar with the widely publicized case. Providence County Superior von Bulow Court Judge Corinne Grande dismissed the potential jurors after determining that the expected eight- to 10-week trial would be too much of a hardship on them. Von Bulow, who was smiling but silent as he moved through a throng of reporters on the way inside the court, watched as Grande asked the remaining jury pool of about 90 people if they had ever heard or read anything about the case. When too many hands went up for her to count, she reversed the question, asking how many had not heard or read anything about the case. Only five hands went up. She also asked if any in the group had made up their minds that von Bulow was either guilty or innocent of two counts of attempted murder, and 18 people raised their hands. By the end of the day Monday, no prospective jurors had been seated. The process of picking 16 for the panel is expected to take two weeks. Upon his morning arriva! at the courthouse, the 58-year-old von Bulow climbed out of the front seat of a taxi after handing the driver a fistful of bills. He was accompanied by defense laywers Thomas Puccio, John Sheehan and Peter DiBiase. Grande was expected to dispense with a formal arraignment and simply tell potential jurors that von Bulow has pleaded not guilty to both counts of attempted murder, each of which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

Von Bulow, a Danish-born financial consultant, was found guilty in 1982 of trying to kill Martha "Sunny" von Bulow by injecting her with insulin, in the couple's Newport mansion in 1979 and 1980. Mrs. von Bulow, a 53-year-old heiress to a Pittsburgh utilities fortune, has been in an irreversible coma since December 1980. Von Bulow was sentenced to 30 years in prison, but remained free on appeal. Last year the state Supreme Court overturned the conviction, saying von Bulow's constitutional rights were violated because search warrants were not obtained before testing was done on drugs and drug paraphernalia allegedly found locked in his closet. Von Bulow said Sunday that he "feels very good and very optimistic going into the trial." Von Bulow's attorneys have said they will ask Grande to sequester the panel, which was not done in Newport during the initial proceedings in the highly publicized case. The second trial was moved to Providence to avoid tying up the smaller Newport court system. The jury will be impaneled when 16 residents have been approved by the judge and attorneys. Reporters were initially barred from the proceedings, with the judge claiming that no one from the media had asked in advance to be allowed inside.
