The World at a Glance ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., DEC. 27, 1972 Page 3 Howard Hughes Last Words LONDON (AP) - Billionaire recluse Howard Hughes landed in Britain early today and immediately vanished, the U.S. Embassy reported. Hughes had been driven from his luxurious hotel refuge in Nicaragua by last week's devastating earthquake. The 66-year-old American tycoon arrived without a passport but was rushed through immigration controls at the request of American authorities, official sources said. He landed at London's Gatwick Airport shortly after midnight, arriving in one of his own 10-seater Lockheed Jetstar executive planes. A convoy of limousines met the plane and took the arrivals away. Hughes in recent months had been living in a hotel in Managua, the Nicaraguan capital, but reportedly fled from there after the earthquake that shattered the city early last Saturday. Fourth Oath SEOUL (AP) - Chung Hee Park, who has ruled South Korea since 1961, took his fourth presidential oath today with a pledge to "build a great Korea— prosperous, just, full of hope, and above all, reunited." The inauguration was held before some 3,000 persons. They included 2,359 delegates to the National Conference for Unification which elected Park to a six-year-term Dec. 23. The inaugural and promulgation of a new constitution earlier in the day marked the start of the Fourth Republic. It ended a Western-style democracy which had existed since 1948. Park was elected to his third term last year and then rewrote the old constitution, having it approved by a national referendum Nov. 21. lie said the reforms were needed so that the nation can meet international power politics and better pursue a peaceful reunification of South and North Korea. A new single-house National Assembly is to be elected in the spring, but it will have little power and the president can dissolve it when he pleases. Australia CANBERRA (AP) - Australia's new Labor government is ending defense aid to South Vietnam and training of Cambodian military personnel in Australia, Defense Minister Lance Barnard announced today. Barnard made his announcement following the return of the last Australian troops from Vietnam. The previous government had promised South Vietnam about $12 million in defense aid in the next two years. NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) "Offer everybody a drink on me," jazzman John Provenzano said in one of his last words to his family. The veteran clarinetist died here Tuesday at 75. Known as Johnny Zano when he helped export jazz upriver to Chicago in 1918, his career spanned the early years of the 20th century. In a note written to his family shortly before his death, he asked: "Give me a nice funeral. Lots of flowers. By a few bottles of New Orleans whiskey and offer everybody a drink on me. That"s it, See you later." Funeral services are scheduled Thursday. No Cop GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) The 84 residents of remote Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific are without a cop. Tom Christian, 35, the one-by- two mile island's radio officer, reported Tuesday that Pitcairn's lone policeman has quit and will not be replaced. In a weekly radio message monitored here, Christian said the island's jail was empty throughout 1972. "Sometimes there is a minor dispute over the boundary of a garden, or some of the young fellows get into a bit of mischief and the police officer is called in," Christian said. "But on the whole, a policeman on Pitcairn is about as out of place as a camel in the arctic." 19 Killed FORT SUMNER, N.M, (AP) — At least 19 persons were reported killed Tuesday when a bus carrying a church youth group collided with a truck carrying a load of cattle on a narrow bridge, state police said. Officers said the bus was one of two traveling together carrying 58 young people and seven adults from a Baptist church in Austin, Tex. Police said the truck apparently struck a railing and jackknifed into the second of the two buses to cross the bridge. The other bus was not hit, officers said, although earlier reports had indicated it too was involved in the accident In addition to the dead, hospital officials reported at least 10 injured, two critically. Closes Gates ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Disney World closed its gates for two hours Tuesday when a capacity crowd of some 50,000 post-Christmas visitors jammed into the Magic Kingdom. With the tourist attraction's huge parking lots packed with 12,000 vehicles, Disney officials shut off access at 2 p.m. and stayed closed until 4 p.m. No trifling problem, but it's for the birds By Abigail Van Buren K »n *1 OIICMO Trlbunt-N. Y. Ntws Srnd., Inc.] DEAR ABBY: I wouldn't miss your column for the world. I find it so interesting and educational, but I do become disgusted with some of the petty things some people find to complain about. Most of us have so much to be grateful for. I personally find so much comfort in God and prayer that I have no time to think about trifles. However, I do have a problem with birds nesting in my drainpipe. Have you a solution for my problem? Thank you for any help you can give me. MRS. F. S. DEAR MRS. P. S.: After the eggs have hatched, clean out the drainpipe with a garden hose. If the Mamma bird comes back after that, she's cuckoo. DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of five children. The oldest i; seven, the youngest is a year. My husband and I pride ourselves on being good parents and we try to give each child as much individual love and attention as possible. This is sometimes difficult because our eldest is severely brain damaged and requires extra care. My problem is my 3-year-old. She is a bright and beautiful child, but she throws terrible tantrums, kicks, screams, holds her breath, and won't stop until I give her what she wants. She never sits still, refuses to go to bed at night, and is mean to the other children each time my back is turned. If I have to discipline her with a spanking, I can feel myself really laying it on her with all my might to get my anger out. I am sure I am part of her problem because she is always so sweet and cooperative with her daddy. When she does come to me for affection I have to force myself to kiss or cuddle her. She is so difficult most of the time, I find it nearly impossible to "love her"—and I feel so ashamed of myself. The other children are so well-behaved and lovable, I sometimes wonder if maybe I brought the wrong baby home from the hospital. Please help me. ASHAMED DEAR ASHAMED: Children who are hyperactive and incorrigible should be examined by a pediatrician. There is a reason for her behavior. Take your problem child to a doctor and tell him your story. Perhaps you. too, need instruction on how to handle her. DEAR ABBY: You recently allowed nurses to express their views concerning how they preferred to be addressed by their patients. Will you please give patients equal time? It ha6 become the custom in many hospitals and doctors' offices recently to address patients by their first names. In some social situations elderly people accept this familiarity without resentment, but I think since doctors and nurses wish to retain their titles, patients should be accorded the 9ame respect. I am not Caroline. I am Mrs. . OVER SEVENTY DEAR OVER: Doctors and nurses who address elderly patients by their first names intend no disrespect. They think the patient appreciates the less formal approach. And some do. CONFIDENTIAL TO BINGHAMTON MOTHER: Yes. parents should warn their small children about child molesters in language the child is able to understand. Instruct the child to report ALL adults who attempt to take liberties with them whether he's a relative or not. Many relatives, guilty of child molesting have gone unchecked and unpunished because youngsters are taught to believe that it's an expression of affection which is permissible. Problems? Trust Abby. For a personal reply, write to ABBY. BOX 69700, L. A.. CALIF. 90069 and enclose a •tamped, addressed envelope.
