Inmate releases hostages
when promised TV spot

CARSON CITY, Nev. (UPI)-A prison inmate who held
two nurses hostage for 12 hours freed them yesterday after
authorities promised he could voice his complains about
prison conditions on television.
Neither nurse was harmed.
NURSES NELDA CUSHMAN and Gloria Wynott said they
were scared but never thought inmate David Wayne would
carry through a threat to kill them if his demands weren't
carried out.
Wayne, using a homemade knife, captured a guard in the
prison hospital and took the two nurses captive. Six other in-
mate patients were in the hospital at the time. He barricaded
the steel door with a refrigerator, chairs and tables to ham-
per guards if they tried to rush in.
Then he threatened to kill the hostages if any rescue at-
tempt was made. At one point, Wayne placed Cushman on a

bed with two razor-sharp scalpels suspended by a rope above
her eyes. She was in that position about 10 minutes while
Wayne released the guard.
NEGOTIATIONS'CONTINUED on and off through the
night. At one point Wayne called off the talks in order to eat a
hamburger.
At dawn the inrnate agreed to surrender.
Cushman broke down and cried when she talked to repor-
ters about the ordeal. Both nurses said they thought Wayne
serving 20 years for attempted murder, was capable *
killing them.
They said he did not seem close to carrying out the threat
during the night, although he showed occasional flashes of
anger at prison officials.
Prison officials said they would allow Wayne to be inter-
viewed on television to voice his complaints about prison:
conditions.

Federal judge upholds
Detroit census ruling*

DETROIT (UPI)-A federal judge
rejected a government bid yesterday to
set aside a landmark order to revise the
U.S. census, and chided the Census
Bureau for failing to comply with his
order to outline an adjustment
procedure.
U.S. District Judge Horace Gilmore
gave the Census Bureau two weeks to
draft a specific plan to adjust official
population figures to include those
missed bx census-takers-particularly
blacks and Hispanics.
GILMORE rejected government
arguments he should order a new trial

or set aside his adjustment ruling
because improved census methods will
provide a more accurate 1980 head-
count with "essentially no measurable
undercount."
He also rejected a government
argument the ruling should be set asidi
because the Census Bureau has deter-
mined there is no'"statistically defen-
sible" way to guage the undercount or
adjust for it.
Gilmore ruled Sept..25 raw ;census
figures are not as accurate as they
could be and cannot be used to appor-
tion U.S. House seats or distribute
federal aid unless adjusted to include
the undercount.
THE RULING came in a suit filed b
Detroit, which argued thousands
local residents were missed in the een
sus-taking process-cheating the city
out of millions of dollars in aid and
proper congressional representation.
"It is the duty of the Census Bureau to
expend its full, best-faith effort to com-
ply with the court's order," Gilmore
said. "When an order of a District Court
of the United States is made, it must b
obeyed."
