NEW YORK—Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger has
topped the Gallup Poll's
most-admired-men list for
the second year in a row.
At the same time, People
and Ti me magazines chose
their year's notables from the
list of Arab personalities who
have gained worldwide recog-
nition this year.
People, a weekly magaZine
published by Time-Life, Inc.,
has named Yasir Arafat,
head of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization, one of the
25 "most intriguing" persons
of 1974.
People's editors said Ara-
fat was selected because he
"gained new status as a
`stateless head of state' and
remains secure as head of
the PLO thanks largely to his
`carefully staged UN appear-
ance.' "
Meanwhile, Time Magazine
announced that King Faisal
has been: chOsen as its man



of the year, and a photo of
the Saudia Arabian chief
adorns the Jan. 1 issue of the
publication.
People also named Joseph
Hirshhorn, the 75-year-old
Jewish millionaire, who in
1974 was responsible for the
opening in Washington of the
museum housing the $100
million art collection he gave
the U. S.; Valerie Harper, a
non-Jewish actress who plays
`Rhoda," a top-ranked new
TV show; and Erica Jong, a
32-year-old New York writer
whose novel "Fear of Fly-
ing," a chronicle of a New
York "Jewish Princess,"
has become what the maga-
zine described as the femin-
ist movement's' author of the
year.
