Kristin did it!
Sue Ellen's sister shot J.R.

NEW YORK (AP) - J.R. Ewing was shot by
Kristin Shepard, his wife's sister and his former
mistress, CBS revealed last night in a long-
awaited episode of Dallas in which vieweres also
learned she is apparently pregnant with his child.
The show that answered the question "Who shot
J.R." capped a phenomenal publicity campaign,
and CBS hoped the installment would become the
all-time ratings champion for an episode of a
regular series.
But for all those hooked on the prime-time soap
opera, the nail-biting did not end with last night's
disclosure.
VIEWERS LEARNED that it was Kristin who
fired two bullets into the conniving oil baron in the
darkened corridor of his downtown offices.

But Lorimar Productions, which packages the
series, forced viewers to wait until the Nov. 28 in-
stallment to learn her motive as well as what hap-
pens to her next.
Broadcast time for the big episode was 10 p.m.
EST in the East and Midwest, but there was a one-
hour delay in the Rocky Mountains and a three-
hour lag on the West Coast. Viewers there who
were unable to bear the suspense could telephone
friends in the East.
LORIMAR, MINDFUL of the publicity bonanza,
announced elaborate security precautions to
guard the assailant's identity, locking the produc-
tion set, swearing writers to secrecy and filming
several different solutions to confuse cast and
crew.

So delightfully despicable is J.R., played by
Larry Hagman, that virtually every character on
the show became a suspect. When the shots rang
out, he had just driven one business associate to
suicide, another to bankruptcy, and was on the
verge of sending alcoholic wife Sue Ellen to a men-
tal institution, framing sister-in-law Kristin for
prostitution, and driving goody-goody brother
Bobby away from the family homestead, South-
fork.
Speculation about the culprit became an ob-
session among the program's estimated 250
million followers worldwide. Until the Nevada
Gaming Commission stopped the fun, a Las Vegas
casino was taking bets this week on who shot J.R.

House approves anti-busing bill

WASHINGTON (AP) - The House
gave overwhelming final approval
yesterday to an appropriation bill that
includes an amendment prohibiting
government lawyers from seeking
court-ordered busing plans in school
desegregation cases.
Despite Carter administration com-
plaints that the amendment would
cripple federal efforts to end
segregation in public schools, the House
approved the measure on a 240-59 vote
and sent it to the Senate.
The anti-busing amendment was at-
tached to a $9.1 billion appropriation
bill containing money for the Justice

Department and for programs in a
variety of other agencies, includingthe
Commerce and State departments.
The measure was expected to face lit-
tle serious opposition in the Senate,
which added its version of the anti-
busing amendment after the ap-
propriations bill had been sent to the
floor without it. There was no indication
when the bill would be considered by
the Senate, which adjourned yesterday
without taking up the measure.
Final Senate approval of the bill and
the anti-busing amendment would send
the legislation to the White House
where it faces an uncertain future.

and the second worst hotel fire in U.S.
history, exceeded only by a Dec. 7, 1946
fire at the Winecoff Hotel in Atlanta
that killed 119.
"It's a sickening sight in there," Gov.
Robert List said after touring the bur-
ned-out area. "It's just burned-out
devastation. It turns your stomach."
Dinsman said the fire apparently
started in an exhaust fan in the kitchen
of a ground-floor delicatessen of the
hotel near where the casino is also
located. He said flames spread quickly
to the casino and up through the "eye in
the sky"-a open catwalk above the
floor used to monitor gambling.

CLARK COUNTY Fire Chief Roy
Parrish said, "We were told a wall of
fire fell down in the casino."
He ruled out arson asthe cause of
fire.
Some survivors said no alarm soun-
ded to warn guests of the danger.
Parrish said the fire apparently
destroyed the amplifiers on a manually
activated alarm system. He had earlier
said apparently "no one had pulled it."
"The amplifiers for the fire alarm
were in the basement of the hotel,"
Parrish said. "Our theory is that the
fire consumed the amplifiers before
they could be used."

VIBO VALENTIA, Iraly (AP)-Two
high-speed Italian/ passenger trains
slammed into a string of boxcars that
had been lost by a passing freight in a
bizarre accident yesterday that killed
at least 20 people and injured 112,
authorities said.
Many still were trapped in the

wreckage hours later. The victims
groaned and cried out for help as rescue
workers using blowtorches and
crowbars struggled to free them. Police
found the body of a baby still clinging to
a dead woman, believed to be the
child's mother.

Prisoner exchange treaty
to return five Americans
ANKARA, Turkey-The publication Thursday of a prisoner exchange
treaty with the United States in the national gazette bodes the return in the
near future of five Americans serving long sentences in Turkish jails.
The treaty, which was ratified by the U.S. Senate last year, did not get
Ankara's final approval until this week. Technically, the Americans could be
released from Turkey's jails within 30 days, when the treaty goes into effect.
Without the treaty, most would have had to wait until 1982 or 1983 to be con-
sidered for a transfer, and one would not be eligible until 1989. Legal obser-
vers have said red tape probably will delay their release until early next
year at least.
The exchange treaty also provides for Turks now in American prisons to
request a transfer home and U.S. prisons are being canvassed to locate
Turkish prisoners.
Reagan lays congressional
groundwork, upsets Israelis
WASHINGTON-President-elect Ronald Reagan said yesterday he suc-
ceeded during a four-day Washington visit in laying the groundwork for
relations withyCongress and determined that transition efforts are "working
very smoothly."
Reagan was greeted warmly throughout Washington during his stay. He
met with President Carter at the White House, Democratic and Republican
congressional leaders on Capitol Hill, big-name media and social powers at
parties, and even had h surprise session with West German Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt.
Meanwhile in Tel Aviv, Israeli officials said privately they believe Reagan
snubbed Israel by refusing to meet with Prime Minister Menachem Begin
when he was in the United States. Reagan turned down Begin's request for a
meeting last week, saying he did not want to meet with foreign leaders until
after he takes office Jan. 20. Israeli newspapers headlined the meeting with
Schmidt, noting that it contradicted the reasons Reagan aides gave to Begin
for not granting his request for a similar meeting.
Federal officials discuss Klan
GREENSBORO, N.C.-U.S. Justice Department officials met yesterday
with state prosecutors to discuss possible federal charges against six Ku Klux
Klansmen and Nazis acquitted earlier this week in the slaying of five Com-
munists more than a year ago.
A state Superior court found the six men innocent on murder and rioting
charges in the deaths of the five Communists at a Nov. 3, 1979 anti-Klan
rally, a verdict which sparked protests from civil rights groups and demon-
strations this week in several cities.
U.S. Attorney H.M. Michaux and several officials from the U.S. Justice
Department huddled with Guilford County District Attorney Michael
Schlosser most of the day. Schlosser declined to comment on the specifics of
the discussions.
Ex-POWs talk of Garwood
CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C.-A former prisoner of war testifying against ac-
cused traitor Marine Robert Garwood, admitted yesterday that he agreed
under torture to join-forces with the Viet Cong.
Gustav Mehrer testified he signed propaganda statements for the Com-
munists after being beaten, threatened with death, hung upside down for
hours, and tied to bamboo stakes in a leech pit. Mehrer also testified the tor--
ture was so severe he begged the Viet Cong to kill him.
Mehrer said he was given increased rations of tobacco, bananas, and
sugar after he signed propaganda statements for the Communists, but his
guilt led him to attempt suicide and eventually renege on his promise to join
ranks with the Viet Cong.
Another survivor of the POW camp testified yesterday that he encoun-
tered an armed Garwood leading three American POWs down a jungle trail,
and later saw Garwood being treated warmly bynCommunist soldiers, with
'a whole lot of shaking hands and hugging going on
Mao's widow reported sick
at "Gang of Four" trial
PEKING-Jiang Qing, 67 year old widow of Mao Tse tung and leader of the
"Gang of Four" currently on trial, appeared sick and perplexed in film clips
broadcast on Chinese television last night.
Meanwhile, Chinese newspapers reported that fourof the 18 defendan-
ts-Wang Hongwen, Jiang Tengjiao, Qiu Huisue, and Wu Faxian-had ad-
mitted guilt after reading the indictment charging them with plotting to
murder Mao, staging an armed coup, and framing and persecuting thousan-
ds of officials and other Chinese citizens. They could receive the death

penalty if found guilty.
During Thursday's opening session, Jiang Qing was said by Chinese repor-
ters to have broken into tears at one point but in general to have maintained
her poise, holding her head high and showing no effects from her detention
since shortly after Mao's death in 1976.
In a television program aired last night, however, Jiang appeared old,
seemed unable to hear well, and said she was sick as she received her copy
of the 28,880-word, 48 court indictment

stitutions that student loan officials
recommend.
STATE AUTHORITIES issued the
suspension period because soaring in-
terest rates have made it more difficult
to sell the bonds necessary to fund
student loans, John Houkje, director of
the State Direct Student Loan
Program, said yesterday.
Increases in 21980-1981 loan ap-
plications received by the financial aid
office added to their financial troubles,
Raphael said.
"THERE HAS BEEN a 72 percent in-
crease in the number of applications
received by this time last year," she
said.
Earlier this month, state agencies
were forced to move deadlines for
Fall/Winter 1980-81 applications up to
October 31 to allow enough time to
process this overflow, Raphael said.
But deadline changes could not com-
pensate for the serious depletion of fun-
ds state agencies are faced with.
Board members of the Michigan
Higher Education Loan Authority
recommended the University's ap-
plication suspension earlier this week.
"It's a problem affecting schools that
all Michigan students attend," Houkje
said.
Funding from private sources is one
possibility University officials are
looking into, Raphael said.
