U-B-r-UJBBOCK AVALANCHE-JOURNAL—Friday Evening. April 4, 1975 At 90, University Student Mai Wickham Still Jogs MADISON, Wis. (UPI) — Like many college students, Mill Wickham jogs a litlc, eats natural foods and wears earth shoes. He's an honorary .mem- ber of the now generation at 90 and spends much of his time years old. Wickham is the oldest student lit the University of Wisconsin. I-if attends under special status 'New' Patty Hearst Pictured By FBI WAS!ICNGTON (API - The FBI released Thursday a new composite photo and drawing of fugitive newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst, with her hair cut very short and apparently bleached blonde. An FBI spokesman said n Rents had been told by a NEW LOOK—The FBI released m in Washington this composite photo and drawing of fugitive Patty Hearst. According to the bureau. Miss Hearst 'has cut her hair short.(APWircphoto) Heart (Continued From Page One) Pierce, secretary; and David Seim. E in m a 1 e n e Chatman was elected chairman of the board and Russ Wilkinson will be the vice chairman. In accepting the new job, Dr. Faust outlined general goals for his term, including organization to involve the community in tnt' ^figlit against heart disease; strides to increase the program audience by 25 per cent and increase giving to 25 cents per capita (last year amounted to 21 cents per capita); and provide more programming for minorities. Dr. 0. Brandon Hull, speaker for the event, reminisced about early cardiac care in Lubbock, when there were only "three EKG machines in town—and one of those didn't work," and (raced rapid progress in that area. Presenting slides of cardiac cai'c facilities in Methodist Hospital, Dr. Hull showed closed circuit televisions and hcarl. monitoring equipment currently used. "We're not seeing the critically ill patient like we used to," he commented and said cardi- ogenic shock is more the "exception than the rule." He said perhaps patients are "coming in earlier" for cardiac care. In the past year, he said. 8G7 cases were monitored and "now we're saving 50 per cent of the patients" who develop arrhythmia (irregular heart action caused by disturbances, in discharge of cardiac impulses). Ten years ago, he said, the patient freqcently died with the same condition. He attributed much of the progress to nurses becoming adept at monitoring, and to •'money, research. . .public ed ucation and continuing education." Rickman reported Ihe county exceeded its 1974-1975 heart fund goal by more'than $2,000. He said more than 45,000 educational leaflets were distributed during the drive. Standing committee chairmen chosen for the 1975-1976 term are: Dr. Tevis for public education; Lorenz Lutherer, profes- hional education; Mildred Montgomery, public relations: Karen Raines, community service; and Bill Pittman, campaign. source that Miss Hcnrst had changed the style of her hair, whi-ch was long and dark at the time of her abduction on Fob. 1, 1D74, by the Liberation Army. Along with the picture, FBI Director Clarence M. Kclley released an eight-page .justification for the bureau's forced entry March 15 into an Alexandria apartment in a futile hunt 'or the fugitive heiress. The statement said the decision to break sin was made because of the "definite air of au- Vicnticity" of the anonymous tip that led the FBI to the npartment. "Reasonable .. . efforts to question the occupant of the apartment had been repelled" and the Symbionese Liberation Army lias "a virtual suicidal compulsion toward violence." he statement said. "The two agents and two (Alexandria) detectives at Ihe scene . . . were confronted with making an on-the-spot decision. They chose to force the door as they had reason to believe that Patty Hearst was in the apartment and their action would reduce the. potential for violence." The apartment was the residence of Elizabeth Norton, 21. snd Bernadine Davis. 24. Miss Norton was alone in the apartment at the time. The FBI later said Miss Davis closely resembles Miss Hearst. Miss Norton's attorney said later that she had asked the agents to slip their identification cards under the door but, that they 'had refused because "the last time we did that . . . agents got shot." Kellcy's statement said the agents ' could not show Miss Norton their identification cards because the door bad no peephole and there was not enough space : to slide a badge or card beneath the door.

The conversation might have continued hut the streetcar was at the end of the line and Dukakis was quickly off the trolley, into the subway throng, and on his way to the State House.

When designing jewelry, Thomason considers the weara- 3! lily of the piece and how it will enhance its owner, the quality of materials used and sheer artistic design. Most of its designs have symbolic meaning. As a child, Thomason fantasized that the messas and buttes of the southwest are really tumps of a growing, flowering earth. From this fantasy has come his "Growing Earth" jewelry scries. Much of Thomason's work is done in the studio of his old. rambling Spanish home in Albuquerque. He displays his jewelry designs in his nearby gallery —"which is about the size of a large closet," the jeweler said. Thomason will be among the artists featured this weekend in the "Fiesta del Arte" in Odessa. Adopted (Continued From I*RE« One) said. "He ate four bananas. He was just starved. The abundance of food that was in the refrigerator was just fantastic to him. I guess." Phillip's memory of hunger lasted for months. "He would clean up his plate and every grain of food he saw on the table," Mrs. Golas said. "I would take the pot back to the kitchen and he would cry. 'More.'" Phillip, abandoned at an orphanage in Can Tho as an infant, was adopted by Peter Golas. and his wife a little more than one year ago through Friends of Children of Vietnam, Ihe agency sponsoring the current rescue flights of homeless children from Saigon. Phillip now is a typical little boy. He loves ice cream, spaghetti and his red tricycle. Mrs. Golas goes easy on sweets with Phillip because his teeth still are bad. He helps her set the (able at night and puts pennies he finds into a bank shaped like a rabbit. Golas, a professor of Chinese history at Denver University, said lie was an antiwar activist in the 1960s and his feeling the Vietnam war was immoral prompted dim lo adopt Phillip. The couple has a daughter, Katherine. "He wouldn't talk for a long time." said Mrs. Golas, stroking the boy's shoulder as he played with his Easter basket on the window ledge of the living room. "We had to use signs. It look a while." She said the scar.s on Phillip's face caused by insect bites are nearly gone but she said his scalp infection permanently killed patches of his hair. He speaks English fluently. Golas said school officials tried to convince him to wait one year before enrolling Phillip in kindergarten but said he refused. Golas said Phillip will repeat the grade next fall "and he'll go through with no problem. He's adjusted very well. We've been lucky." "We've lost contact with all the others," she said.

''1 like students because they give me so much," said U'ickham, who lives in a small, book-filed apartment near fraternity row, "I wanted to meet nnd talk to students. I didn't dream of tli« success I've had." Wickham farmed for 40 years near Janesvillc, Wis. He sold his place and went to Europe before returning to campus life about six months ago. G r e g a r i o us and popular among his fellow students, Wickham says he has read most of the greats of philosophy, literature and psychology. He calls it collecting "geniuses." and that's his religion. "I've got my own religion. It's so big there ain't no name Jewelry would fit it," he said. "Philosophy, psychology, comparative literature, and especially the MIA Awareness Week Promoted By City Groups "Missing In Action Awareness Week" will continue through Sunday in an effort to "promote awareness among the people in Lubbock that we have at least 1,000 men stil! missing in action," said chairman Ann Kuhl. Today and Saturday, a booth will be set up in South Plains Mall where interested persons can sign letters which will be mailed to national legislators. "This is to help place public pressure to get North Vietnam to honor the peace treaty so that we can let the Joint Casualty Resolution Center investigate crash sites" of American airplanes, Mrs. Kuhl said. Bumper stickers and brochures will be available at the booth, she added. The goal for the week is 50,000 signatures. A booth was placed in front of the Texas Tech University Center earlier in the week. Also scheduled today is dedication of a "freedom tree" in front of wing headquarters at Reese Air Force Base. poets, showed me religion."

Suspicious Auto Fires Increasing In Dallas DALLAS (AP — Blame it on) the economy, or soaring fuel costs, or whatever, but Dallas fire officials say an alarming number of big cars are going up in smoke. And, according to fire and insurance investigators, a number of them are set ablaze purposely so owners may colleci insurance. Officials reported also that there was a sharp rise in the number of large, expensive burned cars, which looks suspiciously like someone might be having difficulty with monthly payments. The National Automobile Theft Bureau, which investigates fraudulent claims, said suspicious car fires in 1974 increased about 50 per cent over 1973. And in the first three months, this year, another 50 per cent increase over the same period last year has been noted. LEVI BIG BELLS ALL COTTON Jack Davis Western Wear (Across From Tech) A bureau official, C. C. Benson, estimates suspicious automobile fires each year mean a $3 million loss in Texas. "In the typical cases," Benson said, "owners don't want, the car lo burn jusl a little. They add Uammables to be sure the car really burns up." However, he said, trained arson investigators easily spot "tell-tale" signs of the flammables and many insurance claims are denied. "Vehicles are not that much of a fire hazard, and when they burn lo a total loss and the front headlights, motor grills and tires are melted," he said, "it's a little suspicious." Wickham was born in Missouri in 1884. He discovered his "geniuses," he said, while n college student. After graduation he sold pots and pans around the Midwest for 10 years, but saved the summers for school at Wisconsin. When he wasn't, studying, he said, he spent his time looking for a wife "who was an original thinker and who didn't have a religion." After an eight-year search, he found a girl who fit thn bill in a library. He said he proposed two minutes after meeting her, and before he knew her name. "She was more original than 1 thought," Wickham said. "She was almost a genius." The- Wickhams were married for 40 years and had two daughters. His wife died eight years ago. Though Wickham may be 90, he insists he's only "47 in spirit" and doesn't fear dying. "I'm not afraid of death," he said. "Say I pass on. There is no death. God is as much here as any galaxy in time." ANNIVERSARY SALE | WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY f FRIDAY & SATURDAY I Open 10-6 Men.-Sat. I 5412 Slid* Road • Plains Plaza Center 799-T269 FATHERS' DAY SPECIAL!
