MADISON, Wis. (AP)- Wisconsin on Tuesday
becomes the first state to hold a referendum on a
nuclear weapons freeze, and .the Reagan ad-
ministration is warning that approval could undercut
its negotiations with the Soviet Union.
The question on the ballot asks whether the state
should urge the federal government to seek a mutual
freeze on and reduction of nuclear weapons in talks
with the Soviet Union and other nations. More than
200 town, city and county governments have ap-
proved some type of call for a nuclear weapons
freeze, but Wisconsin is the first of seven states this
year to make it a statewide issue. Residents of Brat-
tleboro, Vt., will also vote on a similar question in
that state's Sept. 14 primary.
AS PASSED by the legislature, the ballot question

reads:
"Shall the Secretary of State of Wisconsin inform
the president and Congressof theUnited States that it
is the desire of the people of Wisconsin to have the
government of the United States work vigorously to
negotiate a mutual nuclear weapons moratorium and
reduction, with an appropriate verifications, with the
Soviet Union and other nations?"
The other statewide referendums-in California,
Rhode Island, Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan, and
Arizona-will be held during the general election on
Nov. 2. The proposal will also be on the ballot then in
the District of Columbia.
The referendums are largely symbolic since
results are not binding. But freeze proponents in
Wisconsin say it will send the Reagan administration

a message to get busy on arms limitation talks ana
help prevent a nuclear war.
Opponents argue that a freeze now would increase4
the risk of war by locking the United States into an in
ferior military position against the Soviet Union. The
Reagan administration, which defeated a freeze
resolution in the House of Representatives last month
by just two votes, is taking on the Wisconsin proposal
as a threat to U.S. efforts to negotiate a nuclear arms
freeze with the Soviet Union in Geneva, Switzerland.:
Campaigning for the proposition last week, Sen.
Alan Cranston (D-Calif.) said a yes vote "would sen4
a message.. . that the people of Wisconsin want an
end to the nuclear arms race, an end to the threat of
nuclear war."

September 6 - November 30, 1982.

By GREG BRUSSTAR
This calendar is not as explicit as the
Playboy one, nor as ingenious as one
from National Geographic, but is has a
special way of telling which day of the
month it is. The pin-up models are all
over 60 years old.
The cover of "Sexy Sixties" features
a long and lean set of female legs,
presumably belonging to some senior
citizen, although it is hard to tell.
SIXTY-YEAR-old Betty Jean of
Florida, with 35-25-36 measurements,
appears beside a pool in a swimsuit as
the January beauty. Irene Niksa's 65-
year-old legs appear on the April page,
with her age not at all apparent.
Bill Baldwin, the calendar's creator,
claims the publication is not ,all hype,
but a calendar with a cause.
"On TV the only people who buy cars,
clothes, or go to fancy hotels are 25
years old," Baldwin said. As a result,
he says, young people have the wrong
impression about older people.

"YOU NEVER see old people on TV
unless it's a constipation or false teeth
commercial, he continued. "TV doesn't
portray the true image of old people -
some of us aren't classified as senior
citizens."
The 30 people in the calendar show of-
fered their smiles or physiques in an at-
tempt, as the cover claims, to give "a
new dimension to that tired phrase
'Senior Citizen'." a
BALDWIN, who is 60, found his
models through advertisements he
placed in newspapers across the coun-
try. He received more than 225 photos
from people all over the nation. The
thirty people in the caldendar show off
their smiles or phvsiaues.
Baldwin also has other ideas which
may boost the image of senior citizens,
including Sexy Senior Models, a beauty
contest for those over 60, and the Sexy
Senior Nightclub, where the enter-
tainers would be over 60- "You know,
someplace where we can raise hell
without young people," Baldwin said.
Irene Niksa, 65, model for April, said
her friends urged her to send a picture
to the calendar. She admits the calen-
dar is "unusual, and our friends get a
kick out of it."
THERESA MADER, 62, of Royal Oak
said, "It lets people know how the
people over sixty feel." She advocates
that older people stay active and she
adds, "we still have a lot of living to
do."
Lucille Pearson, 60, of Troy, who is
the October. 1983 model, said the
calendar "gives a new perspective to
senior citizens."
Niksa, Mader, and Pearson are
members of a senior citizen dance
troupe called the "Dazzle Dancers."
They perform for various senior citizen
benefits and at nursing homes around
the Detroit area.
