Single Copy 25* Wet Storm 1 Cash registers ring in the joljdays in Y-S slugs state Skier dies in Truckee slide By ROGER PETTERSON Associated Press Writer A strong, wet storm slugged Northern California with rain and heavy, blowing snow Friday, dumping nearly 3 feet of new snow in the Sierra Nevada to close out a month that has already seen record accumulations. And November's unusual blast of cold rewrote more record book entries as temperatures on the northern Plains fell as low as 31 below zero. A snow slide buried two people at a Lake Tahoe-area ski resort Friday, killing one of them. The other man escaped without suffering serious injury. The fast-moving Northern California storm snarled traffic with snow in mountain passes and dumped nearly an inch of rain at San Francisco. Pacific Gas and Electric reported outages at some 7,100 homes See Back Page, STORM t Libya: Egypt plans invasion Egypt rejects 'propaganda' report CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Libya claimed on Friday that Egypt has completed a military buildup along its border and is preparing to invade after blaming Libya for the hijacking of an Egyptair jetliner last week The official Libyan news agency JANA, monitored in Cairo, said the Egyptians planned to claim Libya was plotting an air raid on Egypt and then launch an attack on Libya. An Egyptian Foreign Ministry source, who spoke on condition he not be identified, dismissed the Libyan report as "purely propaganda.'' In another dispatch, JANA claimed U.S. forces in the Mediterranean had increased surveillance of the border in the past 48 hours to help the Egyptians plan the attack. JANA said the United States was eager for an excuse to intervene militarily in Libya "to put an end to the role'' that country played in confronting American policy" against the Arabs. Egypt's foreign minister, Ahmad Esmat Abdel Meguid, said Egypt has increased its troops along the Libyan border "in view of the seriousness of the situation that has come out of the hijacking." "We certainly do not want to embark on any action we consider dangerous, but we have to make Libya understand that we certainly do not accept their interference with us," Meguid told reporters in Brussels after a visit to Belgium to confer with See Back Page, LIBYA t 1 Shop with a friend! 25 shopping days to Christmas Weather Partly cloudy, rain Sunday.

Times News Service MANILA, Philippines - Some- \ times, says Imelda Romualdez Mar- ; cos. when the accusations of j extravagance, corruption and misrule get her down she thinks of her j favorite movie. "OK, they don't like my face." the 52-year-old wife of President Ferdinand E. Marcos said of her American critics. "But I can be a good friend. I feel like the hunchback of Notre Dame. Here was this man, but such a beautiful spirit, you know? It is my favorite movie." 'They call me corrupt, frivolous," Marcos said in an interview in a dining room of Malacanang Palace, i am not at all privileged. Maybe the only privileged thing is my face. And corrupt? God! I would not look like this if I am corrupt. Some ugliness would settle down on my system." In a three-hour interview this week. Marcos spoke of the pressures she said she felt as her Filipino political opponents and critics in Washington bear down on her husband's administration. Describing the Marcos era as her country's Camelot, and her husband and herself as the incarnation of a Filipino legend of Adam and Eve, she said criticism from the United States merely reflected ignorance of her nation's culture.

Christmas buying swings into high gear; talking bears, cuddly dogs 'hot' By HAROLD KRUGER A-D Staff Writer Rain didn't dampen Yuba-Sutter shoppers' enthusiasm yesterday as the Christmas buying season kicked into high gear. "It was just wild, just wild," said Jo-Ellen Yarema, general manager of the K Mart store in Yuba City. "They were lined up at a quarter to seven. They were fighting over blankets. They were fighting over gold - 74 percent off. They are just buying everything. "The fake Christmas trees were doing well, and the toys are just outstanding. The Pound Puppy was hot stuff. He's the saddest looking dog in the world, and ev- eryone loves it. The Cabbage Patch Doll is definitely not hot." At the J.C. Penney Co. Inc. store in Linda, Manager Dick Hollen-beck said, "We've been selling a lot of basic clothing - flannel shirts - some of the more popular toys and electronics. Christmas started early, and it's going to continue. It should be a good December." Hollenbeck said "availability is tight" for Teddy Ruxpin, the cuddly, talking, teddy bear. Video cassette recorders are also moving briskly, he said. At the Marysville Mervyn's, Operations Manager Steve Nash said Teddy is going strong, as are the Gtobots and the Transformers. "It's been busy, no doubt about it. Everything is going real smooth. Business is what we anticipated," he said. Said Dick Neves, manager of Syd K. Kahn Inc., a Marysville shoe store: "We're looking for a fairly busy season. I don't expect anything fantastic, but it will be good. Our downtown is busier than it has been the last two years. Things look pretty good. By and large, the season's been pretty good. The year has been not all that bad. Considering the local conditions, I don't think we got anything to complain about." Just down the street, at F.W. Woolworth Co., store Manager Ka-maran Jaleel said, "It hasn't really started too good compared to last year. I guess we are going to make it. Last year, it was bigger. We are expecting it next week to pick up." At the GEMCO Membership Department Store in Yuba City, Manager Mike Sperbeck said his store experienced a "real fine opening." Doors opened at 8 a.m. instead of the usual 9 a.m. The Sears, Roebuck & Co. store in Yuba City opened two hours earlier than usual - 8 a.m. - and sales were "very, very good, bet-See Back Page, SHOPPERS | Atlantis spacewalkers quickly build structures in Earth orbit SPACE CENTER. Houston (AP) - Two spacewalking astronauts quickly assembled a 45-foot beam and a pyramid-shaped structure in the cargo bay of shuttle Atlantis on Friday in a test of construction techniques that future homesteaders may use to build villages in orbit. Sherwood Spring and Jerry Ross, working with the precision of a well-drilled team, built the long beam in less than 40 minutes and were able to construct a 12-foot pyramid in 11 minutes. This was much faster than experts had predicted, and Mission Control said the spacewalkers were an hour ahead of schedule at one point, despite occassional breaks to enjoy the view from their 220-mile-high construction site. The beam was assembled from 93 aluminum tubular struts that snap 5m Back Page, SPACE | (AP Photo) Astronauts Jerry Ross (left) and Sherwood Spring assembled a tower in the Shuttle's cargo bay. 'The Nutcracker' starts today in the A-D A Christmas classic, "The Nutcracker," starts in the Yuba-Sutter Appeal-Democrat today as a special holiday season treat for youngsters of all ages. Basing their work on ETA. Hoffmann's tale, "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King," artist Joe Kubert and his students at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, N.J., have created a charming Christmas comic strip. It will appear as part of The Mini-Page pullout in The Appeal-Democrat's TV This Week tabloid in each Saturday's Weekender Edition between now and Christmas. "Many people don't realize that Tchaikovsky's ballet was based on a very original story about a little girl, a nutcracker soldier and her dreams one Christmas Eve," Kubert said.
