Frl., Aug. », 1978 • DES MOINE8 REGISTER / 8 PEOPLE in iM ntwt Ootlntss The coolness of Jennifer Rendrtx, 15, is being credited by doctors in Topeka, Kan., with saving the life of her brother, Andrew, 11, after the boy crashed into a storm door while playing with friends at his home. Jennifer found him standing with* both arms bleeding. She told the boy to lie down, stay quiet and not move, and she found the pressure point for the artery. Then she told a neighbor child to call police to send an ambulance and told other children to find someone in the neighborhood who could help. Andrew underwent 4% hours of surgery. Sort of... The board of education in Cherry Hill, N.J., voted to permit high school students to smoke in school. Sort of. Students must obtain written permission from their parents. The written permission must be verified by a telephone call and by a registered letter. Then smoker I.D. cards will be issued. But before the students can light up, they must agree to attend a minimum of three counseling classes on the hazards of smoking. Then they can smoke — in designated areas and under supervision. Campaign aid The chances of President Ford campaigning in New Hampshire for Senate candidate Lotris C. Wyman are excellent, a Wyman spokesman said in Concord. He said the trip probably would be made in the last week before the Sept. IS special election. He said plans are still tentative, pending a ruling by the Federal Election Commission on who pays for campaign visits by the President. Fatal curse The burglar who stole a relic box from the Sausalitb, Calif., home of Zen philosopher Alan Watte may have gotten more than he bargained for — a fatal curse, Mr». Watts says. The tur- quolse-studded box from Tibet contained three bits of the late philosopher's bones, and, according to Tibetan legend, the fatal curse. Watts, author of "The Spirit of Zen," "The Way of Zen," and other works, died in 1973. TV serial CBS' "As the World Turns," now in its twentieth year and one of the most popular of the daytime TV drama serials, may be expanded to an hour format, beginning in December. However, Bud Grant, vice-president of daytime programming, said in New York City, "No deal has been set. There are a number of details that have to be ironed out."

Trial delay Rock singer Charles William (Chuck) Negron, lead singer of the group Three Dog Night, won another delay in Louisville, Ky., of his trial on charges of illegal possession of narcotics. He was arrested several weeks ago, while the group was appearing in Louisville, when police searched his hotel room and allegedly found small quantities of narcotics. Dropped Promoters of a weekend jazz concert in Newport, R.I., said they would comply with a Clay Council order that they drop Blood, Sweat and Tears, a rock group, from their show. Nebon Atnado, promoter of Jazz in Newport, said he was trying to book a fill- in jazz group. City councilmen had complained that the rock group might attract undesirable persons to the concert.
