' I hope they’re (the voters) going to support Proposition six,” Sagebiel said. “The city is any number of years behind in recreation programs for the citizens.” Following the passage of Proposition six, which also includes funds for development and improvement at HEB Soccer Fields and Haymarket Park, the parks board hopes to keep up with the city’s Yul Brynner dies NEW YORK i AP) Yul Brynner, whose more than three dozen movies were dwarfed by a record 4,625 stage performances as the bald, autocratic monarch of Siam in “The King and I,” died today at the age of 65, his spokesman said. His wife, Kathy Lee, and his four children were with him when he died at I a.m. at The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, said spokesman Josh Ellis of {Jolters Ruskin Friedman Inc The agency handled the publicity for the most recent Broadway production of the dassie musical, which ended in June. “He died of multiple complications that came as a result of what was originally cancer,” Ellis said. “He faced death with a dignity and strength that astounded his doctors. He fought like a lion.” “He was a remarkable person." said Charlton Heston, who .starred with Brynner in Cecil B. DeMille’s 1956 epic “The Ten Commandments.” “His work in King and I’ was beyond compare. He was a very special talent I’m very sorry to hear of his death.” Although Brynner made more than three dozen movies, including “The Ten Commandments,” “The Magnific e n t S e ven” and “Anastasia,” he was best known for his stage and screen portrayals of the king iii the Rodgers and Ham-merstein musical classic. The role brought him a Tony in lt»52, an Oscar iii 1957, and a special Tony in June. He played his final performance as Hie king June 30 at the Broadw ay Theater at the end of a tour lasting almost 4G years. That tour was interrupted iii September 1983 when Brynner, who at one time smoked five packs of cigarettes a day, needed treatment for lung cancer. He received radiation therapy at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. “I think that the discipline I acquired through 53 years of working iii show business has helped me enormously with my own physical problems whether it was a crash iii the circus when I was 17 or the serious illness which I had more recently,” Brynner said in an interview last December. “You have to make a choice — being sick in bed, and that’s a fearsome kind of thing — or playing in a Bleater to standing ovations every night. The choice is obvious. I simply go on playing.” Brynner was born Taidje Khan on Sakhalin Island, north of Japan, which is now a part of the Soviet Union. His office gives the date as July ll, 1920, although Current Biography lists the year as 1917 and Who’s Who in the Theater as 1915. His background was as exotic as his looks. His father was a Mongolian mining engineer who was born in Switzerland and later changed the family name to Brynner His mother was a gypsy who died at lus birth. Brynner’s early childhood was spent in Beking but he went to Paris to live with his grandmother and study. In Europe, Brynner began performing in nightclubs and circuses and later worked as an acrobat until a fall at 17 forced him to give up the trapeze. He studied philosophy at the Sorbonne and acting with Russian director Michael Chekhov and came to the United States in 1941 with Chekhov’s acting troupe. in Seguin visiting their grandparents at the time of the accident. Davis told investigators that he knew he had hit something on the bridge but did not know until he turned back that he had struck the girls. recreational needs. Future smaller bond issues should include funds for land acquisition for future parks. “I think based on the (Chamber of Commerce) master plan update, that land acquisition is certainly a key category," Sagebiel said. “There’s also a need for a 27-hole golf course and we’re still going to be inadequate in fields for soccer, softball and baseball, and little league “The entire situation is at virtual capacity,” he said. Tin parks board is also proposing an improved fee system to help pay for some of the future parks improvements, Fox pointed out. “It doesn't seem fair that the taxpayer should share evenly in some of these things if they all don’t use them," he said. What if Proposition six doesn’t pass? “The projects are still needed, they are still necessary,” Chair said. “It’s still important and ifs been important for the last five vars. It’s going to be important and it’s not going to go away.” Continued from Page 1A Chairman Yasser Arafat told reporters Wednesday night that the organization had asked Egypt to surrender the hijackers to it for judgment and punishment. The PLO has not confirmed that it has custody of the hijackers. U.S. Ambassador Nicholas Veliotes, who boarded the ship Wednesday to investigate the incident, had insisted that Egypt prosecute the hijackers, and the White House demanded that the pirates lie turned over for “appropriate punishment." The Foreign Ministry said that at 5:10 p.m. Wednesday (10:10 a.m. CDT) the terrorists surrendered to representatives of the PIX) and were taken to the Port Said Naval Base. The death of I^on Klinghoffer of New York City was confirmed only after the surrender agreement was made. ★ Barbour_ Continued from Page 1A “There are cost-cutting and position reduction moves going on across the state to take care of the loss.” These budget cuts were part of the state’s reduction in funds for higher education. The Extension Service is considered part higher education in Texas,Jackson said. Jackson said about IOO positions have been eliminated from the service’s budget. The service is still finalizing reduction plans and is contacting individuals whose Nine hours after the hijackers surrendered, the Achille Lauro steamed into Port Said under government orders for an investigation into the death of Klinghoffer, who was traveling with his 58-year-old wife, Marilyn. Veliotes, the U.S. ambassador, told reporters after leaving the ship: “When the Egyptian government made its agreement with the hijackers, it did not know that an American or anyone had been murdered.” Visibly angry, Veliotes said: “Our position is that these are murderers. There should be a full investigation, and they should be prosecuted according to the laws of Egypt like any other criminals.” Franz Bogen, Austria’s ambassador to Egypt, said the Achille Lauro may be kept in Port Said for up to 48 hours for investigation into the death of Klinghoffer. positions have been eliminated, he added. Jackson said the positions eliminated are in all areas of the service including home economists, specialists in various aspects of agriculture and administrators at the service’s headquarters at Texas A&M University in College Station. Schumann said four positions have been eliminated in this district of the state. The other positions are in Uvalde, Medina and Val Verde counties. By LILLIAN THOMAS Staff writer So far 25,094 persons have registered for the Nov. 5 election. County Tax Collector Gloria Clennan is busy counting all the voter registrations this week, and County Clerk Rosie Bosenburv continues preparations for the election. Sunay was the deadline for registering to vote for either the general election, which will have proposed state constitutional amendments on it, or the Canyon Lake incorporation election. The organizers of the incorporation effort changed the name of the incorporated city from Sattler to the Village of Canyon I .ake, Bosenbury said. Commissioners voted to consolidate the voting precincts for this election since the voter turnout for amendment elections has always been small, previous commissioners court meetings have revealed. “It costs the county a lot of money to man all of those voting places,” the county clerk explained. “But since we are consolidating precincts, we are urging the registered voters who are 65 and older or disabled to vote absentee by personal appearance or to apply for a ballot by mail.” Absentee voting for both the incorporation election and the constitutional amendment election will be conducted in Room 104 of the county clerk’s office. The office will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday beginning Wednesday, the count clerk said. The last day to vote absentee is Nov. 1. On election day, precincts I and 2 will have their polling place at the American legion Hall. Those in precincts 3, 4 and 5 will vote at Comal Elementary. Voters in precincts 7 and 8 will vote at the First United Methodist Church. New Braunfels High School at the east entrance has been designated the polling place for precincts 8,9,12, 22 and 23. Bulverde Community Center will serve as the polling place for Precinct IO. Voters in precincts ll and 15 will cast their ballots at Eagles Hall. Those in precincts 13,14 and 21 will vote at Smithson Valley High School. Canyon I>ake High School gym will serve as the polling place for precincts 16,17 and 20. And Canyon City Fire Department has been designated the polling place for precincts 18 and 19.
