People Journal Plus Wednesday, April 10,1985 Page 2, Mystery car striping appreciated OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - After design consultant Thomas Roberts left his new Audi in an airport parking lot for a week, he found someone had brushed paint on his car. But he's not complaining. The paint was in two sharp, tasteful pinstripes on each side. "It was an expert striping job," Roberts said. "If I had it done at a garage, it probably would cost $75 to $100. I know I'm not mad." The identity of the artist remains a mystery. Roberts said he was in Los Angeles for a week and got back into town late at night. "Next morning what caught my eye was that there was a long clean mark on the side of my car where -the dust had been Thomas Roberts checks striping. wiped off. Then I saw the stripe. My car didn't have a stripe when I left, but it has one now." Pearl to receive theology degree LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) Singer Pearl Bailey says she really has something to sing about now. At the age of 67, Bailey is about to graduate from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., with a degree in theology. "I'm always been firm on education and very strong on mind expansion," ". said the singer, whose father and brother were both preachers. "I think learning is one of the greatest things. All my life I've been a reader ' and I always sought knowledge. I'm so tired of people associating entertainers with all the boozing, all the drugs." Bailey Booklet banned for cover bikini •> WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - A booklet to promote the metric system with a bikini-clad woman on its cover has been banned as sexist by school officials. "Metrication, American Style" was written in 1974 by John Izzi, head of the mathematics department at Toll Gate High School. "It's wonderful that they're going to ban the book," said Izzi, 53. "It'll make it famous and it'll really promote the metric system." On the booklet's ?over is a picture of Izzi standing beside a poster of a woman whose measurements are listed in millimeters. The booklet was not used as part of the regular curriculum, but Izzi distributed it to students as an educational extra. He said it has been distributed nationwide. Politics lures "Love Boaf actor DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Fred Grandy, the Sioux City native who plays the hapless character Gopher on "The Love Boat" television series, says he might give up his role to move back to Iowa and run for Congress in 1986. "In my position as a TV actor, I expect a degree of skepticism," he said. "But I would say that at this point I'm seriously considering it." Grandy, 36, a Republican and resident of Venice, Calif., would be up against Democrat Berkley Bedell, who last year easily won re-election to a sixth term. Fred Grandy Newman gift to aid drug research LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor Paul Newman, whose 28-year-old son died from an alcohol and drug overdose, said he will give $1.2 million to the University of Southern California for a research center dedicated to preventing drug abuse. The money will come from the Scott Newman Foundation, created by the actor and his family to fight drug abuse after his son's death in 1978. The money is provided in part from profits from "Newman's Own" brand food items including salad dressing, spaghetti sauce and popcorn. p au l Newman Tele-puzzle ACROSS 1,5 Shown, Cathy on "Knots Landing" 12 MaudorEdie 14 Taylor or Winwood 15 "- Ed" 16 Yes. to Charo 17 Told whoppers 18 Sign-olt lor Lancaster 19 The Doughboys 21 Donna and Rex 23 Vic Tayback role 24 Mr. Mineo 25 Individual 26 Apr 15 address 27 Robin Williams role 30 "The — Boat" 32 He was Lou Grant: inil 33 Prefix with lidy 34 "— in the Dark" 36 "— Malone" 39 "My-Sal" 40 Stallone, for short 43 Linklelter or Carney 45 "— Abner" 46 Rigorous 48 She's Lady Ashleyi 49 Hall an em 50 Actress Phillips 51 He's Webster: inil. 53 "CHiPs" star: init. 54 "Or Blue Eyes" 56 He was Dr. Welby 58 Peter - ' 59 Mimics DOWN 1 He's Lance 2 " ot Jeannie" 3 Rio'sconl. 4 Some radios 5 Actress Hayes 6 Oil the subject 7 1 and 66 8 Isaac on "Love Boat" 9 Star ol "Highway lo Heaven", init. 10 Co-star ol "Switch" 11 Carter and Gwyn 13 Masculine title 20 Polly Holliday role 22 Played Sam Benedict: init. 23 Actress Farrow 28 Crimson 29 Dianne — 30 NFL Coach Phillips 31 "Three Men Horse" 34 Singer Kazan 35 Everyone 37 Sheepish sound 38 Dahl or Golonka 39 She's Chris Cagney 40 Bealle Ringo 41 Tu;ner and Wood 42 12mos. 44 Model Cheryl 46 Placement 47 "— Largo" 50 "MyGal—" 52 Mauna — 55 Insigne lor Lear 57 Sign on elevator Puzzle solution ' on Page 7 Tailure' at sewing now a prizewinner By CAROL LICHTI Staff Writer Christine Shively would like to tell her seventh grade sewing teacher about the $1,000 prize she recently won. Although Shively says she flunked that seventh grade class it is hard to believe considering she was the winner of the 1984 American Home Sewing Association's sewing contest. Shively, 32, Kipp, learned of her achievement in mid-February. The soft cotton doll, which sits spinning wool on a wooden spindle, is on display at Martha Brown's, 112 N. Santa Fe. The doll was judged on its appropriateness of fabric and color schemes. Judges also considered the skill and orginality it took to make the doll. Shively entered five of her dolls in the contest. "I figured I had nothing to lose but the postage and photographs," she said. Shively has been making the dolls for three years. "They've changed so much from the beginning," she said. Shively left a teaching job to go into the dollmaking business. She said she hoped the prize will help her business. ' "I've had orders from New York to Alaska," she said. A sales representative in Kansas City, who only handles handcrafted items, has been marketing Shively's dolls since June. Shively said she just walked into the sales representative's office and he agreed to take her on. From June to Christmas, the busiest time for dollmaking, Shively said she and her three employees make about 30 dolls a week. The employees help put the dolls together, dress them and put on their hair. Shively hand sews the faces herself. "Because the face is handmade they come out different every time," she said. "My signature is the'face." The dolls range from $25 to $50 depending on the materials used to make them, Shively said. The dolls are identified by a tag on the inside which says "Christine." Her partner, Lou Lyda, also helps by inspecting the dolls and making special items for them. Shively said she has learned a lot from starting her own business. The most important thing she learned has been inventory strategies. Hav- ing a backup of inventory is essential, she said. Her business makes two lines of dolls, "Jester Days," which are the custom dolls, and."Christine's Col- lectables." She'said she is planning two new dolls, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and Bojangles, a black • doll. ' ; : She has had two of her dolls se-~ lected for a mail order program.' She is also considering advertising.' options and other ways to make her; business grow.

T— A JJ:J.: A_ _ _ . . * • ^^^^ ^ WIlll By JUDITH WEBER Staff Writer ABILENE - Robert Whitworth, former president of the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce, has accepted a job as Abilene's economic development director and projects coordinator, Whitworth headed the Salina chamber for 17 years before resigning in October to become executive vice president of the Liberal Chamber of Whitworth Commerce and director of economic development for Seward County. He said he views the the Abilene job as "an opportunity to go home, to do something for my hometown." Abilene City Manager Stan Stewart said, "The city commission made the decision two or three months ago to advertise for a projects coordinator. When Whitworth said he was interested, we changed the position a little." Stewart said Whitworth's hiring signifies a more aggressive approach to economic development in Abilene. In addition to economic development responsibilities, Whitworth will assist with city projects. "Abilene is my hometown," Whitworth said. "It's something I thought I would enjoy doing." He added, "There's nothing wrong with the job here. Things are going good in the city and county. Chamber membership has increased. I'm satisfied with the progress in the six months I've been here." Whitworth said he hopes to be in Abilene by June 15. He signed a three-year contract at Liberal, and said Liberal officials are disappointed he is leaving so soon. "They were counting on me to rebuild the program and get economic development off the ground," he said.
