Gunmen kidnap diplomat
!'speaks to women

DETROIT-For women to improve
themselves, they must "close the gap
between who they want to be and who
they actually were at 7:30 this mor-
ning," cartoonist Cathy Guisewhite
The 33-year old University graduate
who created the "Cathy" cartoon
character spoke to about 500 people in
Cobo Hall at Strategies '84, a career
"(THERE IS) a gap between how
things are when everyone else does
them and how they are when I do
them," said Guisehite, who admits her
life is quite a bit like her comic strip
To succeed, women must overcome
that gap, she said, even though it seems
like "everything always seems to fit
everyone else better."
Guisewhite has overcome that con-
flict. Her comic strip is now syndicated
in more than 400 newspapers nation-
wide, and Cathy,the character who is
always struggling to balance her career
and personal life, now appears on
bulletin boards, mugs, and pajamas.
BEFORE Guisewhite started her
comic strip seven years ago, the
Midland native received an English
degree and was the vice president of a
Detroit advertising firm.
Guisewhite gave women attending
the conference advice on how to suc-
ceed in a career by sharing her own
You must find ways you are unique,
even if those ways aren't particularly
favorable, Guisewhite said. "I not only
expect my complexion to go when
something big comes up, I've learned to
plan by it," she quipped.
IT'S important to accept who you are
and keep a sense of humor about it, she
added. Although women have
problems balancing careers and
relationships, Guisewhite warns that
they don't have a monopoly on such
confusion-men are struggling with
And women still have a lot of
progress to make, she said. "The
future of women's rights is in the hands
of a president with a bullet wound who
won't change his mind on gun control,"
Despite such obstacles, Guisewhite
said women must be optimistic, and
proud of the things they are going right.

BEIRUT, Lebanon-Three gunmen kidnapped an American
diplomat in West Beirut yesterday, forcing him into a car at
gun point and speeding off. There was no immediate ransom
demand or claim of responsibility.
William Buckley, 55, first secretary in the embassy's
political section, was the third American kidnapped in the
Lebanese capital in five weeks. His abduction came as heavy
shelling in the capital violated the three-day old cease-fire.
BUCKLEY WAS seized at about 7:30 a.m. by three gunmen
as he left his apartment house in the Ras Beirut neighborhood
of mostly Moslem west Beirut for the U.S. mission on nearby
Eim Mreisseh boulevard, said embassy First Secretary
"Eyewitnesses told us that the American diplomat was
taken out of his diplomatic vehicle outside his apartment," a
police spokesman said.
"The kidnap was carried out by three men in civilian
clothes. One of the three approached the diplomat, who was
warming up his car engine, and forced him to get out at gun-
BUCKLEY, A native of Medford, Mass., was forced into the
assailants' white Renault and driven away, the witnesses told
The kidnap car was seen later in the day near Khalde nine
miles south of Beirut, an area controlled jointly by the Shiite
Amal and Drize Moslem militias.
The U.S. Embassy warned the more than 50 diplomats based
in Beirut to take extra precautions and was considering
moving all staff into the fortress-like British embassy com-
pound, which houses the temporary U.S. Embassy offices.
Plugh said there had been no threats or warnings of the kid-
Two other Americans, journalist Jeremy Levin and
American University professor Frank Reiger, have been
reported missing from Ras Beirut since Feb. 6 when Moslem
militiamen took control of West Beirut from the Lebanese ar-
my. No one has taken responsibility in any of the abductions.

Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and
West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl
sent personal messages of
congratulations to Machel and Botha.
It was South Africa's firstnon-
aggression pact with a black neighbor.
Botha called the agreement "a major
turning point" that could promote peace
elsewhere'in the region.
"I see a sub-continent in which coun-
tries work together to rationalize and
increase food production, develop
regional trade, establish housing
programs. . . and many other mutually
beneficial activities," Botha said.
"WE START off with a burden of
mutual suspicion and bitter memories
that, as we progress, must be shed by
the wayside," he added.
The pact, welcomed by the United
States and other Western countries,
capped more than a year of economic
and military pressure by anti-Com-
munist South Africa to force neigh-
boring states to expel African National
Congress (ANC) guerillas who are
fighting to topple the South African

Paul Jensen's candidacy for a seat on
the City Council ended abruptly this
week after receiving notice from a state
election, office in Lansing that the party
under which he's running is invalid.
The American Independent Party
(AIP) received less than 1 percent of
the vote for Secretary of State in
November 1982 making American In-
dependent Party candidates ineligible
to run for any position in Michigan this
year, said Jim Chapman, an official at
the Elections Division in Lansing.
Jensen was able to run for mayor last
year under the Independent Party only
because the attorney general issued a
special provision allowing AIP can-
didates to participate in the April 1983
The only minority parties under
which candidates in Michigan can run
are the Libertarian and the Tisch par-
ties, said City Clerk Winifred North-
Although Jensen received less than 1
percent of the vote in last year's
mayoral election, he was set to try
again this year for a Fifth Ward Council
seat, and he has already announced his
candidacy for governor in 1987.
Jensen, who has already appeared at
two debates this year with other council
candidates, could not be reached for
