WASHINGTON (AP) -- Kermit
the Frog began life looking more like
a lizard - made of an old spring coat
and a split pingpong ball. Now, his
original incarnation is back in an
exhibit that traces Kermit's 42-year
journey to stardom.
The split pingpong ball, with a
couple of dashes of black paint,
became Kermit's eyes when he and
other "Muppets" first appeared in
1955 on a Washington television
show called "Sam and His Friends."
And while Muppets creator Jim
Henson developed Kermit and his pals
for entertainment, they became known
worldwide for children's education
when, 14 years later, they got their big
break on Public Broadcasting
System's "Sesame Street."
The Muppets "are largely commer-
cial entertainment, but there's always
a little heart, a little moral to it," said
Paul Avery, a University of Maryland
instructor who put together the exhib-
it, "The Muppets Take Maryland," at
the university's College Park campus.
"There's always the message that
people need to work together, and
how you treat people is important,"
said Avery, who teaches a course
related to the Muppets.
Kermit got his start at the College
Park campus, where Henson met his
partner and later wife, Jane Nebel.
On "Sam and His Friends, Kermit
became "frogified," as Henson put it,

from his original lizard-like image.
It wasn't until 1969 that producer
Joan Ganz Cooney, appalled by the
state of children's TV, put Kermit and
others onto "Sesame Street."
The characters went on to even
wider fame in their own television
show, and in Hollywood movies.
Henson, who died in 1990, invent-
ed the word "Muppets" by combining
"marionettes" and "puppets."
"There was nothing in Kermit out-
side of the piece of cardboard,"
Henson once said. "It was originally
cardboard - and the cloth shape that
was his head."
"He's one of the simplest kind of
puppet you can make, and he's very
flexible because of that ... which
gives him a range of expression."
Kermit still makes appearances on
"Sesame Street:" Now, says the
Henson firm's publicity, he is the
bright green, "gentlemanly, sophisti-
cated and intelligent" frog-reporter.
The American version of Sesame
Street appears in 39 countries, and 34
other countries have other versions.
The exhibit runs through Friday.
Another early Kermit is on tour as
part of the traveling "America's
Smithsonian" exhibit celebrating the
museum's 150th anniversary. That
show travels to Portland, Ore., April
3, Birmingham, Ala,, May 29, and
later to California, Illinois, Ohio and
Texas.

Hillary Clinton talks
in South Africa

Equal Opportunity
Employer

SOW ETO, South Africa (AP) --
Hillary Rodham Clinton spent her first
day in South Africa yesterday talking
about two issues troubling post-
apartheid society -- violent crime and
the need to improve education for
blacks.
The first lady, often smiling broadly,
thrilled children at a school and an
orphanage in this sprawling black
township outside Johannesburg, then
led a panel discussion on domestic vio-
lence and child abuse to wind up the
second day of her two-week African
trip.
People in Soweto waved and cheered
Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, and
children sang for them during the pair's
visits.
At the Entandweni Lower Primary
School, Mrs. Clinton sat in on a first-
grade class and even taught English for
a few minutes, encouraging the uni-
formed youngsters to name things
inside and outside the classroom.
A crowd of journalists laughed out
loud when the first student, a girl,
answered, "The police are outside the
classroom."
Her comment evoked memories of
the era when schoolchildren took part
in anti-apartheid protests and often
clashed with police in Soweto.
Clinton pushed a favorite theme -

donors.
Clinton donated a computer and
printer, wall maps and an atlas to the
school.
She also put in a plug for her hus-
band's school uniform campaign, when
a student asked her if U.S. children
wore uniforms like the South Africans.
"President Clinton wants more stu-
dents to follow the example of students
here in Soweto and wear uniforms."she
said.
Clinton also visited the memorial for
the first student killed in the notorious
Soweto student uprising of 1976 and
paid tribute to all who helped bring
down apartheid.
"I came to South Africa today, on
behalf of my husband and my coun-
try, to thank you for the struggle you
went through and the courage it
took," she said at the Hector Peterson
Memorial.
The memorial includes a picture of
the slain Peterson being carried in the
arms of his older brother. The photog-
rapher, Sam Nzima, who carried the
camera he used to take the famous pic-
ture, also met Clinton.
Later in the day, Clinton offered sug-
gestions for dealing with chronic
domestic violence and child abuse.
She cited efforts in some American
cities to improve cooperation between
