(AP Wircphoto) Modern Style Whammy Found In Red Book MOSCOW, March 27 «1 -- Tin Literary G a i e 11« says a red- haired woman in Baku has convinced a lot of people she can put the whammy on cops, tax collectors and wandering husbands. She is known as "The Invincible Zcinab." According lo th» account published today she ha» modernized the sorcery business end made it quite profitable. I( (he things two Literary Gazette reporters found out abonl Zoinab are true, the magazine took a risk in telling the story. A local humor magazine in Ba^ xu did a satirical piece on Zeinah some tima ago despite the sorceress' warning that "If you writ* about me you will be sorry." That night the local publication's presses broke down. Th(' incident shook the Caspian port city 1,200 south oi Moscow and enhanced Zcinab'a reputation. The Literary Gazette reporter! said Zeinab's tricks are widely believed in Azerbaijan, where Baku is located. They sairt sho has done away with .the old-fashioned props like boiling cauldrons, black cats and blinking owls .and instead wean stylish clothes, lives in a two-story house with TV and automatic refrigerator and watches the moi ey roll in. Zeinab uses a simple pilch in volving mumbo jumbo with n loci rnd the number seven. Clicnfi '.vho. \v_TMt her help in pcr.sonn 1 mailers bring Zeinab a lock aii( .wvcn items site wants--such al seven JCO-ruble notes, pairs ol stockings, oranges or s i l v e r spoons. An income lax collector, su»- peeling that Zeinab was not re- purling all the ruble note-i, questioned her about her return*. Her relatives hustled him into lh» street and Ihe revenucrs decided not to buck the lide. The uolice want no part of her. A "while back she was arrested, (or swindling, and sent lo jail. But this enhanced her reputation, too, when a court freed her after only seren days--her lucky number- in the lockup. College Costs Show Increase Survey Claims WASHINGTON.
