Chandlee Forman, architect for National Park Service Kids injured, moms blame TV show BALTIMORE (AP) At least eight youngsters have been seriously injured in recent weeks by bottle bombs they said they learned to make from watching the television show, MacGyver, authorities say. The show's producers said they do not recall an episode in which the character used a bottle bomb, but some victims' mothers have told doctors they saw the show. "This is a nightmare for us," said Dr.

Terrence O'Brien, an ophthalmologist at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Wilmer Eye Institute. O'Brien said he knew of two mothers who said they watched the show a few weeks ago. "We're concerned about the children, but the producers of the show just don't remember that episode, and we would never divulge what devices are made of for fear someone would try to duplicate them at home," said Harry Anderson, Paramount Pictures spokesman. MacGyver is an ABC-TV series whose hero uses scientific knowledge to outwit criminals. The latest victim, Kevin Hines, 11, remained hospitalized Friday.

His eye was badly burned March 15 by an exploding bottle bomb. He had picked up a glass bottle bomb that had been shaken by another boy. The bottle exploded. According to O'Brien, Kevin was about to throw the bottle when it exploded in his right hand, propelling glass that slit his right eyeball. The other eye was splashed by the drain cleaner.

Among the other incidents, an 11-year-old Baltimore boy was injured when he struck a bottle bomb with a stick; a Baltimore woman told police that boys threw a similar bomb at her home; and: a Harford County boy was seriously burned three weeks ago when he tried to make one of the devices. All of the boys told authorities they learned to make the bottle bomb after MacGyver. "Last year, a kid in Allegany was seriously injured trying to make a bomb after watching MacGyver," said Bob Thomas, a spokesman for the state fire marshal's office. O'Brien sent the producers a letter three weeks ago telling them about the injuries, he said. So far, he has received no response.

Dr. Allen Walker, director of the Johns Hopkins Children Center, urged producers of the show to warn viewers that it might be dangerous to imitate the MacGyver stunts. New York Times Service H. Chandlee Forman, an architect, historian and archaeologist who served as chief architect of the National Park Service, died Monday of cancer at his home in Easton, Md. He was 87.

As an architect Dr. Foreman specialized in private residence restorations. In the 1930s his historical and archaeological discoveries at James- town, and St. Marys City, contributed to the understanding of these two landmark North American settlements. He was the author of 14 books, primarily about American homes of the 17th to early 19th centuries.

In the 1940s and 1950s he was professor and head of the art department at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Ga. It's economical PLAN and prudent to select AHEAD a cemetery lot now.
