(AP) "I did calisthenics, situps, pushups and jogged almost all says a 17-year-old blind girl of her night alone in the snow-covered San Bernar- dino mountains. Cheryl Anne Beem of Ana- heim, Calif., wandered away from a group of blind teen- agers Saturday during a weekend camping trip spori- t sored by the Braille Institute of Los Angeles and Orange counties. She spent the night at the level of the moun- tains, where the temperature dropped to 26 degrees. She was wearing a cap, sweater and light slacks when she walked out of the wilderness on her own Sunday. Authorities said Cheryl was in good spirits and appeared in good health after being found by Max Howell, 12, of Fountain Valley. He led her the final mile to camp Os- ceola, a YMCA camp where he had been staying. The camp is about five miles from the spot she left Saturday. Chickie Mclntosh, a director at the camp, said she knew the girl was healthy she smiled and said: "I think my teeth are finally unfreezing." "I wasn't Cheryl later joked with searchers. "I knew where I was but several other people didn't know." More than 50 sheriff's deputies and volunteers had been looking for her. Peripheral Vision Cheryl, who has been legal- ly blind for two years, has pe- ripheral vision that enables her to see things to the side, but not driectly in front of her. "She could have walked to- ward a cliff there are a lot 'of them around there and not know whether it was six feet or GO feet said a Football sheriff's spokesman, referring herself with tree branches, she said. Cheryl said she once heard and saw one of the two heli- copters searching for her. But she was not noticed even though she waved and carved SOS into the snow, filling the letters with dirt and leaves for visibility. "I began to get angry be- cause I was afraid I was going to miss my English class on Monday." Cheryl is a B-plus student at Anaheim high school. Doctor Counts The Blessings of NEW YORK Dr. Frank S. Caprio, noted psychiatrist and) author, recently wrote in the National Enquirer that watching TV football is not only good for your husband's mental and emc- tional health, it's also good for to for lack of depth percep- tion.

Colombia In just a few weeks of cam- paigning Senator Maria Eu- genia Hojiis de Moreno has succeeded in shaking (lie can- didates of the traditional lib- eral and conservative parlies in a bid for the presidency in Colombia. Part of the dynamic 40- ycar-old's appeal reflects the popularity of her father, (.'en. Gustavo Rojas Pinilla, who was president of Colombia be- tween 1953 and 1957. Gen. Pin- ilia came close to winning tiie presidency back after a wildly demagogic campaign in 1970. But Maria Eugenia who has been active in polities for 15 years is also popular in her own right and has been dubbed "captain of the peo- ple" by her supporters among urban poor. Her style is una- shamedly populist. But her aim is to bring socialism lo Colombia. Voters Will Choose Even without Maria Eugen- ia's participation, Colombia is reaching a political crossroads in the April 21 elections. For the first time in 24 years voters will also be able to choose between liberal and conservative candidates. During the late 1940s and early 1950s the historical ri- valry between the liberals and conservatives erupted in a civil war in which upwards of people were killed. Then in 1953, Gen. Rojas seized power in a coup d'etat and managed to re-establish some semblance of order: Worried by the likely per- petuation of the military re- gime, the liberals and conser- vatives formed a "national front" agreement under which the presidency alternated be- tween the two parties during four four-year terms between 1958 and 1974. This agreement expires next year and the par- tics have each nominated sep- arate candidates for the presi- dency. While the national front did bring political stability and economic growth to the country, it excluded the elec- torate from participation in public life. In the 1958, 1962 and 1966 elections, with only one serious candidate seeking the presidency, absentionism and frustration grew. ANAPO Challenge In 1970, the picture changed dramatically when Rojas threw down a direct challenge to the national front and ran for office on the ticket of the National Popular Alliance (ANAPO) party. Seeking out the poor and promising the impossible, the Rojas cam- paign caught fire and most Colombians now believe that he actually won the elections but.was the victim of ballot fraud. ..For this year's election, the liberals chose Dr. Alfonso Ixipex Miclielsen, a 60-year- old former foreign minister whose father was president twice. sees himself as pro- gressive and has promised a more energetic agrarian rc- furm program, hut his policies would probably vary tittle from those of the national front governments. The conservative candidate is 54-year-old Alvaro Gomez Hiirlatio, an openly rightwins politician whose father was also president. He favors the Brazilian model of develop- ment with rapid economic growth hut few social benefits. But since the liberals and conservatives have been in of- fice without interruption since 1958, it is difficult for (hem lo repudiate many of (he un- popular aspects of the na- tional front. "Personal" Campaign Widespread disenchantment with the traditional parlies offers Maria Eugenia her chance of emerging victorious in a three-way split of votes. Supported fully by her 74- year-old father who felt he was too old to run again, Maria Eugenia hopes to at- tract the votes of the millions of Colombians who normally abstain in elections. Because ANAPO lacks money for an intensive radio and television campaign, Maria Eugenia will he forced to travel to the smallest towns to seek support. But this "per- sonal touch" may win her many additional votes. Her platform is vague, talk- ing in general terms of agrarian reform, national- ization and worker benefits. But her campaign is directed clearly at the urban poor of Colombia's large cities. It is not known how the country's male voters will react to the prospect of a female president. The prob- lem of "machismo" (male chauvinism) exists in Colom- bia as it does elsewhere in Latin America. Another crucial question, should Maria Eugenia win in April, is whether the army will allow her to assume office not because she is a woman but rather because she prom- ises to bring socialism to Co- lombia.
