Lenore Kroman, associate professor
of social work, died early yesterday
mor'ning in University Hospital after
suffering from cancer. She was 59.
A University faculty member since
1975, Kroman was widely recognized
for her research in community mental
IN 1975, Kroman was named Social
Worker of the Year by the Lansing-
Jackson chapter of the National
Association of Social Workers. Also that
year, the state legislature awarded her
a resolution of commendation for her
work as a consultant to the state.
Kroman was interested in young
people and their professional develop-
ment, according to Dee Kilpatrick,
assistant dean of the School of Social
Work. "She was very student-
oriented," he said.
"She didn't just lecture, she told us
about her personal experiences," said
Bill Tichenor, a former student.
KROMAN TAUGHT TWO social
work classes: Advanced Interpersonal
Practice and Mental Disorders of
Adults. Despite her illness, Kilpatrick
said, Kroman never missed a class.
"She was a really strong individual,"
Pauline Bush, a secretary at the
school who knew Kroman for 19 years,
said Kroman had a rich career as a
social worker. "She was a very brilliant
woman - very dedicated," Bush said.
Kroman was born Aug. 1, 1921, in
New York and received her B.A. degree
from Hunter College in 1942. She earned
an M.A. in social work at Case-Western
Reserve University in 1944.
BEFORE RECEIVING a faculty ap-
pointment to the University's School of
Social Work, Kroman was a field in-
structor at Columbia University and
Michigan State University. In 1975, she
headed the school's federally-funded
Community Mentalm Health Training
Grant Program in Detroit.
Kroman is survived by her mother,
Jeanette Davis of Los Angeles, Calif.;
two sons, Jonathon, a University law
student, and Steven of San Jose, Calif.;
and a daughter, Ruth, of San Francisco.

Kirkpatrick gets Senate OK,,
Donovan moves one step closer
The Senate Labor and Human Resources Committee voted yesterday to
approve Raymond Donovan as labor secretary after weeks of checking
reports that the New Jersey businessman had ties to labor racketeers and
other organized crime figures.
The vote to send the nomination to the full Senate was 11-0, with five liberal
Democrats voting "present."
Meanwhile, the full Senate unanimously confirmed the nomination of
Georgetown University professor Jeane Kirkpatrick to be U.S. ambassador
to the United Nations.

WASHINGTON-Nearly a dozen former hostages and members of their
families were among the overflow crowd of more than 2,000 who gathered
under the soaring arches of the National Cathedral yesterday to com-
memorate the day designated by President Reagan for giving thanks.
The observance took varying forms around the country: School chijdren
signed a 300-foot yellow ribbon in St. Paul, Minn.; the former hostages were
made honorary citizens of Montana by the governor; and, in Boise, Idaho,
the First Christian Church bells rang 444 times-one for each day the 52
Americans spent in captivity.
Defendant testifies in
Scarsdale Diet murder trial
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-Jean Harris testified yesterday she begged Scar-
sdale Diet Doctor Herman Tarnower to see her the day of their fatal confron-
tation, and that she intended to kill herself at his home and have her ashes
sprinkled near the daffodils in his yard.
"I wanted to be at the side of the pond by the daffodils in the spring and
that's where I was going," Harris testified at her trial.
Harris, 57, a native of Shaker Heights, Ohio, is accused of fatally shooting
Tarnower. She maintains it was an accident that happened as they struggled
for the gun she planned to use on herself.
The prosecution contends she shot Tarnower, 69, her lover of 14 years, in a
jealous rage over his affair with Lynne Tryforos, his medical assistant.
Mental health chief may be
ousted as part of shake up
LANSING-The troubled state Mental Health Department instituted a top-
level shift yesterday which set off a flurry of embattled agency chief Dr.
The ranking Republican on the House Mental Health Committee said he
would seek Ochberg's ouster, but an influential Democrat said. the
legislature should stay out of the matter.
Dr. V.A. Stehman was replaced as chief deputy by Albert Meuli-head of
the department's Upper Peninsula operations. Stehman, who served as ac-
ting director before Ochberg's appointment and saw the department through
the touchy patient abuse scandal, was named director of clinical affairs.
When the dam broke at Buffalo Creek, West Virginia, a lot of
people weren't as lucky as this little guy.
Jamie and the rest of the Mosley family made it up the hill
just in the nick of time. Seconds later, a wall of water swept all
their earthly possessions away.
Here you see Jamie in the Red Cross shelter, thinking it
One look at that face, and we're awfully glad we were there
Every year, you know, Red Cross touches the lives of mil-
lions upon millions of Americans. Rich. Poor. Average. Black.
White. Christian and Jew. With support. With comfort. With
a helping hand when they need it.
So when you open your heart, with your time or your money,
you can be certain it's in the right place.
