Seven-term senator Stennis
SwOnt seek ir-election

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Sen.
John Stennis, 86-year-old dean of the
r U.S. Senate and third in line to the
presidency, announced yesterday he
will retire at the end of his seventh
term next year because of old age.
The decision by the Democratic
veteran of 40 years in the Senate
touched off an immediate political
scramble in Mississippi over a suc-
cessor, and complicated his party's
prospects of maintaining control over
the Senate, where Democrats hold a
54-46 edge.
Stennis had reported as late as the
summer months that he had not made
up his mind about a re-election race,
and his announcement sounded a sad
"I greatly regret leaving the Senate

where it is my high privilege to
represent the people of Mississippi,
whom I dearly love and respect," he
said, "but age and health control.
My heart says 'yes,' run again, but
my best judgment says 'no."'
Stennis, who was shot and
wounded by robbers in 1973 and has
been confined to a wheelchair since
he lost his left leg to cancer in 1984,
noted that he would be 93 at the end
of an eighth term.
Stennis made his announcement
through his Jackson office after
surgery at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center at Washington for what was
described as a routine prostate pro-
cedure to relieve a partial obstruction
of his bladder.
In Washington, Senate Majority

Leader Robert Byrd said the announ-
cement by Stennis "is tantamount to
the proclamation of the end of an era.
"In his 40 yearts in the United
States Senate, John Stennis was at
the center of, of a vital participant in,
some of the most momentous
decisions and legislative efforts in
modern American history," said Byrd
S tennis, who first won a special
1947 election after the death of the
arch-segregationist Sen. Theo Bilbo,

Senate and thus third in line to the
He becomes the fourth senator to
decide against seeking re-election

Hart speech on campus
costs UAC money

(Continued from Page 1)
speech did not sell out and Cone
attributes this to the high prices.
"The ticket price represented
inexperience, I think," he said.
Green said ticket revenues
accounted for about 20 percent of the
costs, she said.
The rest, according to Green, will
come out of the UAC budget. UAC
gets about $2 from all full-time
students each semester, according to
Speta. This source of revenue
generates $130,000 to $150,000 for
the organization each year, he said.

UAC's actual operating budget is
larger; it draws on profits from
plays, movies, Laughtrack,
Soundstage, and other UAC
productions, Speta said.
UAC would not give a figure for
the total expense of Hart's visit.
Cone was also unhappy with
Hart's change of topic. It had been
advertised as a speech on "The State
of Democracy in America" but Hart,
at the last minute, changed his topic
to present his version of the nation's
policy agenda.

Compiled from Associated Press reports
Schultz meets with Hussein
LONDON - U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz met with King
Hussein of Jordon yesterday to try to find a formula for peace talks
between Hussein and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
Hussein has proposed Middle East peace talks be held within the
framework of an international conference, but Shamir objects to Soviet
"We are looking for ways that will meet everyone's objections to get
into the direct negotiations," Shultz added. "But so far we haven't found
that answer."
Shultz helped coordinate yesterday's military operation against Iran and
the U.S. diplomatic follow-through, while holding talks in the Middle
East with Israeli, Saudi and Egyptian leaders.
Earlier yesterday in Cairo, Egypt, Shultz said that Israel and Egypt
have a genuine interest for peace, but that his Middle East visit broke no
new ground towards that goal.
Deaver' s perjury trial begins
WASHINGTON - Jury selection began yesterday in the perjury trial
of Micheal Deaver, as the Supreme Court rejected the former White
House aide's bid to allow attorneys in the case to question prospective
jurors in private.
The Supreme Court without comment rejected Deaver's argument that
allowing public questioning of jurors would jeopardize his chances of
getting a fair trial.
Deaver, former deputy White House chief of staff, is charged with
lying to a federal grand jury and a House subcommittee that investigated
his lobbying activities for alleged ethics law violations.
The list of possible witnesses includes both President Reagan and his
wife, Nancy, both close friends of Deaver's, as well as a host of current
and former senior administration officials such as Secretary of State
George Shultz, Treasury Secretary James Baker, Attorney General Edwin
Meese III and Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger.
Goetz to be jailed for 6 months
NEW YORK - Subway gunman Bernhard Goetz was sentenced
yesterday to six months in jail, ordered to undergo psychiatric treatment
and fined $5,000 by a judge who rejected recommendations that he be
allowed to go free.
Goetz, who shot four youths on a subway nearly three years ago, stood
impassively as acting state Supreme Court Justice Stephen Crane
sentenced him on the single gun possession count of which he was
The crime carries a maximum penalty of seven years in prison, though
first-time offenders like Goetz rarely go to jail.
Goetz was also sentenced to five years of probation and 280 hours of
communtiy service at New York Medical Center.
First lady recovering well
WASHINGTON - Nancy Reagan, "feeling just great" two days after
breast-cancer surgery, got a get-well basket of cookies and a big kiss from
President Reagan yesterday as she continued a rapid recovery, her
spokesperson said.
"She'll be coming home soon," Reagan called out to reporters as he
left the White House for his fourth visit to Bethesda Naval Medical
Center in nearby Maryland.
The president's physician, John Hutton, issued a statement earlier in
the day saying the first lady's recovery "is continuing very well and she
fells wonderful."
Coffee boxes in Seattle man
SEATTLE - William Weir's house may cramp his style, but the
view is terrific.
For a week now, Weir has lived inside a billboard, waving to
passers-by, from his perch 25 feet above one of Seattle's busiest
Weir is getting paid - he won't actually say how much - by a
coffee company to cram himself into 176 square feet of living space for
32 days.
But it isn't as rough as it sounds. He eats catered gourmet meals. He
hauls up messages and gifts in a gym bag tied to a rope, and a delivery
box dangles to await the morning newspaper. A cot sits in a small back
room when he wants to retreat from the narrow, glass-paned front.
"In some ways it's almost like being a zoo exhibit," said Weir, a 26-
year-old actor.

There's no question the stunt has drawn attention. His phone rang
during an interview Saturday, messages from anonymous supporters are
pinned to the wall and the hoarseness of his voice illustrates the strain
of talking to passers-by.
Weir said he gets as much satisfaction fron the uniqueness of the job
as he does from being a magnet that draws people to a food-bank
donation truck parked below.
