lives in South Burlington Vt in jogging suits The newspaper said it re ceived the pictures wrapped in piece of white paper but without any statement or demands from the Revolutionary Justice Orga nization which claimed respon sibility for the kidnappings last fall I think it is a very good sign a very good sign They are alive and I am pleased that there is this Waite said after seeing the pictures Publication of the photos came a day after the proIranian Islamic Jihad group sent a blackandwhite photo of Ameri can hostage Terry Anderson to Western news agencies in Beirut along with a statement threatening reprisals if a sched uled Jan 26 Islamic summit in Kuwait takes place An Nahar said it was not clear why the Revolutionary Justice Organization which has called the two men American spies released the pictures at this time But a political source said the group holding Tracy and Cicippio may have wanted the photos published as something of a reminder to Waite that there are American hostages other than those held by the Islamic Jihad Cicippio who was kidnapped in Moslem west Beirut Sept 12 was bearded while Tracy a convert to Islam who was ab ducted Oct 21 was cleanshaven Both men were smiling when their photographs were taken and appeared relaxed and healthy Tracys mother in South Burlington said the photo of her son was a pretty good indication he was

Superior Judge Douglas Cox Superior court officially does not begin handling misdemeanor violations until Jan 29 but Cox began presiding over misde meanor cases last week as a special judge appointed by Circuit Court Judge Robert Justice Cox began his tenure by slapping fourday jail terms on first offenders convicted of driving while intoxicated Officials in the Governors Task Force on Drunken Driving said it is unusual in Indiana for first offenders to serve j ail time The average fine for drunken driving in Indiana is and normally any jail sentences imposed by Indiana judges are suspended for first offenders Its a dif ferent story for second offenders who can face prison terms of up to five years Second offenders in Cass County usually spend some time in jail The typical sen tence for second offenders in the county has been 120 days in jail with longer sentences being suspended In his first week handling DWI cases Cox sentenced four first offenders to four days in jail and did not suspend the jail time The penalties also included fines court costs of 90day license suspensions and 180day license restrictions The of fenders also were ordered into an alcohol rehabilitation program Previously first offenders traveling through the Cass County court system faced sentences of one year with the department of corrections but typically the jail sentences were suspended in favor of a probationary period Circuit court has been the primary avenue for DWI offenders but superior court will begin taking those cases along with other traffic cases with the change in superior court judges
