Baretta's Thing is flexing his muscles beneath a tight, short-sleeved sweatshirt and shoving villains around — usually pushing their sweating, snarling faces practically up against the camera.

"Pull the trigger. You got nothing to lose . . ." That's when I smelled a speech coming and I went under for a while. I awoke 10 minules later. Still the gunpoint scene, perhaps a tad more sweat. "Go ahead," barked Baretta. "Your name ain't worth nothing. But think about your old man and your old lady. They got that name, too.

"Suddenly I felt the plane hit something and the roof split open," she continued: "Someone handed me a lifebelt. I asked for another for rny husband and it was passed over. For information come by our office or call 777-8841 and ask for Penny. "I don't know how we got into the water but the next thin« we knew we were holding on to a fishing buoy and froM- ins." Her husband was rescued with her. Funchal nir traffic contra! said the plane was in radio and visual contact with ground controllers when it started 1 losing altitude during an otherwise normal approach.
