Jordan makes plea
No business like monkey business
Apparently not satisfied with such mundane goings-on as sail-'
ing his motorcycle over the Grand Canyon or a pool of sharks, Evel
Knievel is moving onward - and upward. The daredevil says he's
planning to leap out of a plane at 40,000 feet and plunge parachute-
less into a haystack. Knievel claims he has been offered $20 million
by unnamed backers to pull the stunt in Las Vegas next July 4.

not here. Not making a difference is a
cost we cannot afford."
Mrs. Carter, who has carried Presi-
dent Carter's human rights campaign
to South America, said the goal of U.S.
womenis "equal participation."
THERE HAVE BEEN and will be "a
lot of disagreements and conflicts, sh*'
said. "But I agree with my daughter-in
law Judy that we must guard agains
obscuring valid issues with defensive-
ness and anger."
Mrs. Ford said women "must keep
focused on our goals - in business, edu-
cation, employment, politics or in the
She said women can have different
interests, "but we shouldn't be dismay-
ed by the clash of opinions and ideas."
MRS. JOHNSON said, "I once
thought the women's movement
belonged more to my daughters than to
me, but I have come to know that it
belongs to women of all ages."
Dr. Gloria Scott, president of the Na-
tional Girl Scouts, opened the confer-
ence by calling it "the most significant
and far-reaching event in this century
.. We are in passage and our fates are
But it was Jordan who brought down
the house with descriptions of the plight
of women. Her fiery brand of Southern
straight-talk inspired delegates to the
Democratic National Convention last
year, when she became the first black
woman ever to keynote the nominating
convention of a major U.S. political
"HUMAN RIGHTS apply equally to
Soviet dissidents, Chilean peasants and
American women," she said.
"When our rights are limited ... when
our rights are violated, we need a do-
mestic human rights program. This
conference could be the beginning of
such an. effort," said the Texas Demo-
She said delegates should not be
brainwashed by those who predict,
.chaos. "Tell them they lie."
FORMER REP. BELLA Abzug (D-
N.Y.) told the delegates that women
are speaking for themselves these
"And I believe the whole nation will
have to listen to what we say," said Ab-
zug, who chairs the federal commission
sponsoring the conference.
"After this weekend, the whole nation
will know that the women's movement
is not any one organization or set of
ideas or particular lifestyle," she said.
"It is millions of women deciding indi-
vidually and together that we are
determined to move history forward."
LIZ CARPENTER, former press sec-
retary to Mrs. Johnson who is a mem-
ber of the women's commission, spoke
to the diversity of the women repre-
sented at the conference.
"Who are 'we the people' gathered
here in Houston? We are the female
people left out in Philadelphia,' " sie
said. "And the irony - the real irony --
is that there would have been no Ameri-
ca without us. So we are here to stake
our claim on its past and its future.'
Carpenter said women have seen
their own dreams shattered and short-
changed, however, by "insecure men
and women fearful of a world of equil-
"Are we so dangerous? So alien to this
land we have founded? Are we so
threatening? So 'forward' and 'brash'
and 'pushy' to ask for fairness?' " she
The women roared back a resounding
But before he starts mapping
out his jump, Knievel has
some other business to attend
to. First, he said he's going to
customize his body. He's hav-
ing his spleen removed, an op-
eration he figures will help les-
sen his chances of getting kill-
ed, and he's also having a
"homing device" implanted in
his chest to help guide him to
the haystack. Before the jump,
however, Evel will have to ser-
ve out a 60-day jail term for
beating a TV executive with a
baseball batr recently. They
don 't call him Evel, for noth-
PRESTON STURGES' 1942
Preston Sturges', a brilliant screenwriter-turned-director and his meteoric
films were the consolation of comedy lovers in the '40's. This one is probably
his most inventive. A successful movie director (of hits like "ANTS IN THEIR
PANTS OF 1931") wants to tackle a serious subject and takes to the roads of
depression America to do research. His troubles are funnier than the'films he
makes. Starring JOEL MC CREA and VERONICA CARE.

Dual jobs tough
PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) - Very few
college football players do play or can
play both offense and defense. David
Noyes Powers, a defensive back for
Princeton, was asked if he would like to
"I would like to play both ways,"
Powers replied. "But I'm not sure I
ould. Not so much from the physical
stamina point of view but football is so
sophisticated, I'm not sure I could
master two positions. On our team the
offense and defense watch films of
games separately, meet apart at half-
time, and sit apart. They are really two
separate teams. College football has be-
come too sophisticated."
