ST. PAUL, Minn. (UPI) - A jury
yesterday awarded $10,000 to a 74-year-
old woman who claimed a "singing
cowboy" gave her a heart attack and
ruined her life when he used an air-
plane's address system to warn
I passengers to be ready for a crash lan-
The six-member federal jury decided
Air California Inc. was 80 percent
negligent and that passenger Larry
White of Waukow, Iowa, was 19 percent
responsible for damages. The jury said
the woman, who also was awared $226
in medical expenses, was 1 percent
negligent in the case.
THE JURORS, who deliberated
about three hours Monday and yester-
day before returning the verdict, rejec-
ted a claim of punitive damages for
Adeline Miller of Rochester.
Miller alleged in a lawsuit that the
joke ruined her life and that she now
has a fear of flying, is claustrophobic, is
afriad of snowbanks and is hesitant to
"ride in cars.
"We're very happy," her attorney,
Jonathon Gallop, said.
"IT'S VERY nice that a woman who
is 74-years-old and on Social Security
can go up against a major corporation
and justice can prevail."
White was returning from Las Vegas
with 162 vacationers on Jan. 29, 1983,
when he joked to passengers over the
public address system that the plane's
landing gear was stuck and they should
be prepared for a crash landing at the
White, who admitted he had been
drinking, finished by leading the
passengers in the country tune, "Lord,
It's Hard to be Humble."

WASHINGTON (AP) - Nancy
Reagan admitted yesterday that she is
afraid sometimes when she goes out in
public with her husband and said no one
could ever understand or prepare for
the glare of publicity and the con-
finement of life in the White House.
As she prepared for the beginning of
another four-year stint beside her
husband at the center of power, Mrs.
Reagan said "I don't think that
anybody can ever imagine how much of
a change it is until you're actually here.
Nobody can ever prepare you for the
scrutiny that you're under.
"WE'VE BEEN in public life prac-
tically all our lives, but this is dif-
ferent," the first lady said in an inter-
view. "There's no way to prepare your-
self for it."
But sitting in the mansion's ground-
floor Map Room with Secret Service
agents just outside the door at all times,
Reagan said she probably has "a dif-
ferent view" of the intense security
than others who have chafed at the loss
"If it weren't for the Secret Service, I
wouldn't have a husband," she said in a
reference to the agents who shoved
Reagan into his limousine and rushed
him to a hospital after he was seriously
wounded by a would-be assassin in
"SO I HAVE a very tender spot in my
heart for them," Mrs. Reagan said.
Asked if she is ever afraid when she
goes out in public with her husband, her
voice dropped to a barely audible
"Umhmm," and she nodded very
slightly. And asked if she will be afraid
on Monday during the inaugural
ceremonies and parade, Mrs. Reagan
paused and said in a voice barely
above a whisper, "Well, we'll see."
Mrs. Reagan said she thinks she has
grown by "being in the middle of
decisions that are being made that will
affect the country and possibly the
"It is fascinating," she said.
"Frightening at times, frustrating at
times, but fascinating."

issues at today's meetings.
