Heart attack kilL
MEXICO CITY (AP)- British
comedian Marty Feldman, whose
bulging blue eyes and wacky style
brought laughter to millions of
moviegoers, has died of a massive
heart attack, his agent said yesterday.
Michael Maslansky, manager and
agent of the 49-year-old comedian, said
in Los Angeles that Feldman died
Thursday night at about 9:30 p.m. in his
Mexico City hotel room hours after
completing his role in a new movie.
"PARAMEDICS were called to the
hotel room, but they were unable to
revive him," Maslansky said.
Feldman had just finished work on
"Yellow Beard," a spoof of pirate
movies in which he starred with James
Mason, Madeline Kahn and John
Although a British citizen, the
comedian had lived in Hollywood for
several years with his wife, Lauretta,
who survives him. They had no
THE COMBINATION of Feldman's
wild hair, popping eyes, broken nose
and splayed feet was called everything
from freakish to ugly. But the face that
launched a thousand gags brought fame
and fortune to the zany comedian from
London's cockney East End.
In the "special peculiarities" section
of his first passport, Feldman is said to
have written one word: "Face."
The star of Mel Brooks' 1973 movie
"Young Frankenstein" and "The Last
Remake of Beau Geste," which he
directed in 1976, Feldman once earned
this description from the London Daily
"HE LOOKED like something that
had fallen off the roof of Notre Dame
Cathedral in a thunderstorm."
Feldman moved to Hollywood in the
mid-1970s to be "where the movie
Feldman once said his distinctive
face "is me, the sum total of the
disasters of my life."
"My nose is testimony to the fact that
I was a poor fighter. My eyes are the
product of a thyroid condition from an
accident. The scar on my forehead
proves I'm a very bad cricket player.
"Physically, I am basically equipped
to be a clown."
Born in London July 8, 1933 of Polish-
Russion parents, Feldman started his
career in school theatricals. He left
school at age 15 to form his own jazz
group in Paris and later worked as an
assistant to an Indian fakir whose act
featured flying tom-toms, arrows and

that 'your story and my story become
our story.' "
Greeley's study surveyed 2,500
Roman Catholic men and women bet-
ween the ages of 15 and 30, and was
conducted by the National Opinion
Research Corporation of Chicago.
"PRACTICALLY speaking, religion
gives meaning to our lives," Greeley
said, adding, "the network that calls
(our life stories) out, is what could be
said to be our religion."
Greeley said "it is the hope-renewing
experiences that we are most willing to
recall and tell, because they call up the
most meaning in our lives."
"We are all story tellers telling the
story of our life in which we are both the
narrator and principle character," he
said. "It is oftenrour religious heritage
on which we draw to get the story
ACCORDING to Greeley, the four
realities used by the team of resear-
chers were "God, heaven, Mary, and
The study participants were given the
four realities and a list of words to
associate with them. The idea was to
think of the reality and then to decide
whether or not the associate words
were strongly or weakly associated.
In addition to the findings, Greeley
said there were a number of unexpec-
ted "gee whiz" discoveries, one of
which he referred to as the "Kramer
vs. Kramer Phenomenon."
Greeley used a chart to illustrate the
new discovery which showed that as a
marriage gets better, so does the
couple's religious imagination. But
when the marriage takes a turn for the
worst, so does the imagination. Greeley
said that it is hard to tell which follows
which, but said he believes they go hand
In his concluding remarks, Greeley
used a scene from the movie "All That
Jazz" in which the character, Joe
Gideon, greets the Angel of Death.
Greeley said the question Gideon is for-
ced to ask is "whether death will be a
cold slab, or the embrace of a warm
lover, and, after all, isn't that the only
question that's important?"

Sitter pleads guilty to murder.
PERRY, Fla.- Christine Falling, a 19-year-old baby sitter suspected of
killing five children and an elderly man, pleaded guilty yesterday to
strangling three of the children.
Under terms of a plea bargaining arrangement, State Attorney Jerry
Blair said Miss Falling will not be prosecuted for the deaths of two other
children, Joseph Spring, 2, and Jeffrey Davis, 4, both of Lakeland, nor the
death of 77-year-old Wilbur Swindle.
All died in Miss Falling's care over a 21/2-year period.
Miss Falling, who initially contended the deaths were a "weird coinciden-
ce," appeared before Circuit Judge Larry Bodiford yesterday morning in
Blountstown and pleaded guilty to the murders of Caissidy "Muffin" John-
son, 2, and 10-week-old Travis Coleman, both of Blountstown.
Later in the day she was brought before Circuit Judge Royce Agner in
Perry, where she pleaded guilty to the killing of 8-month-old Jennifer
She was sentenced to life imprisonment in each case. Under Florida law,
she will be required to spend at least 25 years behind bars.
Suspects in Tylenol case
spotted in New York City
NEW YORK- Two people wanted for questioning in connection with the
killing of seven people by cyanide-poisoned Tylenol capsules have been
photographed by a store surveillance camera in Manhattan, the FBI an-
James and Leann Lewis were photographed Nov. 21, indicating they are
still in New York City, said Ken Walton, deputy assistant director in charge
of the FBI's New York office.
Lewis is wanted on a federal warrant accusing him of trying to extort $1
million from McNeil Consumer Products Co., the maker of Tylenol, and his
wife is wanted for alleged felonious misuse of a Social Security card.
Walton said the FBI identified the Lewises on the basis of the photos and
the transaction that took place in the business. The man and woman were
together and she used identification in the name of Leann Lewis, he said.
"We're concerned now, on the basis of what we've found, that they're
without funds, anxious," Walton said. "Their letters to newspapers indicate*
they're under a substantial amount of stress."
He urged the Lewises to "stop running," saying "there is no evidence
directly linking them" to the Tylenol murders.
Killer storms rip through South
Three more tornadoes slammed into Arkansas yesterday and a child
drowned in swirling floodwaters on the second day of storms that have killed
at least 10 people in the Mississippi River Valley.
As many as four people were reported missing in Illinois.
Temperature records toppled in Michigan and Florida as a heat wave
reached from the Guli of Mexico to Canadian border states that are more
used to snow this time of year. The weather set wetness records, too-
Michigan got more than 3 inches of rain in a 24-hour period, breaking a
record for December.
There were blizzard conditions in Montana: Winds howled at 90 mph
yesterday, one day after three people died in accidents on icy roads.
Oregon and Washington were soaked by a Pacific Ocean storm that
carried 70 mph gusts and knocked out power lines.
High winds knocked an 80-foot hole in the wall of a company in Lowell,
Ind., that makes storm doors and windows and a tornado tore the roofs from
several houses yesterday morning in Eunice, La.
Forecasters said more heavy rains-caused by a strong low-pressure
system pulling unseasonably warm, wet air from the Gulf of Mexico-
threatened to inflict additional flood damage from the southern Great Lakes
Popular parks get fee increase
LANSING- The Natural Resources Commission agreed yesterday that it
should cost a little more for outdoor enthusiasts to pitch their tents or park
their campers in Michigan's 13 most popular state park campgrounds.
The commission voted 6-0 to increase from $6 to $7 per night the camping
fee at a baker's dozen of parks in the Lower Peninsula. The increase will
take effect Jan. 1.
The Department of Natural Resources had requested the increase, saying
it was necessary to raise enough money to maintain park services at current
Fees for modern camping sites at the remainder of Michigan's 83-park
system will continue at $6 per night. Semi-modern campsites will remain at
$5 per night and rustic campsite charges will stay at $4 per night.
DNR officials said they do not anticipate an overall increase in park fees
for at least a year.
Last minute negotiations save
Boston's Herald American
BOSTON- Newspaper tycoon Rupert Murdoch reached agreements with
the Boston Herald American's unions yesterday, clearing the way for him to
buy the tabloid just minutes before its owners planned to shut it down.
Murdoch won the concessions with the last of the newspaper's 11 unions at
4:50 p.m. The Hearst Corp., owner of the money-losing morning daily, said it
would cease publication at 5 p.m. Murdoch had agreed to buy the paper from
Hearst on the condition that the newspaper's unions agree to layoffs and
other cost-cutting changes.
"It's been a very successful day," Murdoch said as his negotiating team
headed for a round of champagne toasts in a hotel suite.
Details of the concessions that saved the deal were not announced. The
agreements were still subject to ratification votes later by union members.
