(AP) Generoso Pope Jr., the owner of the National Enquirer who built the weekly news- paper into a successful supermarket tabloid, died Sunday after suffering a heart attack at his home. He was 61. Mr. Pope was taken to John F. Ken- nedy Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, said hospital spokesman Larry Schwingle. Mr. Pope, a New York City native who graduated from Massachusetts In- stitute of Technology at age 19, was 25 when he borrowed to buy the weekly New York Enquirer. He made it a tabloid, and invented the paper's loud, glitzy style featuring sen- sational headlines and often bizarre stories. Mr. Pope had said that the paper evolved when "I discovered that gore would sell gory pictures, gory stories. Circulation now stands at 4.5 million. While the tabloid flourished, its style has many critics and has netted many lawsuits from celebrities over the newspaper's contents. Comedienne Carol Burnett sued for libel in 1981, winning Frank Sinatra settled his ?22 million suit, brought for an article saying he was injected with a youth serum made of fetal sheep cells. Gary Grant sued and settled over an article alleging he was in a love trian- gle. Actress Shirley Jones sued over an article alleging her husband drove her to drink. That million suit also was settled for an undisclosed sum. Mr. Pope was involved in every aspect of the Enquirer, had kept up his usual brisk pace in the newsroom in thp past week and "looked vibrant and said Enquirer reporter Roeer Capettini. "It's a very sad occasion." said Mr Capettini. "He truly was loved by his employees. He demanded a lot of us, but he rewarded us and compensated us." "If you took this away from me, I'd probably Mr. Pope told the News- Sun Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale in an interview last year. Sir Sachevereii Sitwell dies at age LONDON (AP) Sir Sachevereii Sitwell, poet, art critic and last of the Sitwell trio of literary siblings, has died at the age of 90, his son said. Francis Sitwell said his father died Saturday at his home, Weston Hall near Towcester, Northamptonshire, 50 miles north of London. Sachevereii and his eccentric brother and sister, Sir Osbert and Dame Edith Sitwell, were for nearly 50 years the first family of British literature. They were regarded as the spearhead of the avant-garde during the 1920s, when they were known as the "stormy petrels" of the London scene. All three were prolific writers and gathered around them some of the most talented and creative people of the time. Composer William Walton lived in their London apartment for many years. He wrote music to accompany Edith's public readings of her poetry and composed "Belshazzar's Feast" in the stables at Weston Hall. "He made such a frightful din on the piano we had to banish him from the Sachevereii once said. The Sitwells organized the 1919 exhibition of French art that introduced Picasso and Modigliani to the British public. They were parodied by Noel Coward, and their long-nosed, patrician faces invited caricature. Sachevereii Sitwell was born Nov. 15, 1897, the youngest child of the Fourth Baronet Sitwell and descendant of the Saxon earls of Northumberland. His first work was published in 1924 and over the next 56 years he produced 50 volumes of poems and at least 40 other books on travel, music, art and architecture. While his brother delighted in scandalizing literary circles with his exhibitionism, and his equally famous sister became renowned for her eccen- tricity of dress, SachevereK preferred U> spend his time traveling. He said in 1982 that he had fulfilled a desire of his youth to see every beautiful place and thing in the world. He rated the Italian city of Venice first and the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia second. Dame Edith died in 1964. When Sir Osbert died five years later, Sachevereii became the Sixth Baronet Sitwell Townsend to address councs The Women's Center Council of Frederick County will hold its annual meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at Waltzing Matilda's Restaurant.
