The rumor has hamburger mag nate Ray Kroc, who founded and runs McDonald’s, handing over money to the San Francisco-based Church of Satan. The story has been circulating for about a year, chiefly in the Bible Belt, McDonald’s •spokeswoman Stephanie Skurdy said, and has appeared in print in at least one church bulletin. "At first we didn’t want to dignify it, she said. “But now it’s just red- hot. ” Timberlake said the firm also con sidered a national advertising cam paign to combat the rumor but de cided that approach would only spread the story to millions of people who had not already heard it. Miss Skurdy said there may have been some attempts to boycott McDonald’s franchises because of the rumor. But overall, she said, the chain has seen no impact on sales.

The Norwegian vessel, Nvitungen, was followed into port by the Rainbow Warrior, a converted trawler chartered by the Greenpeace ecological organization in an attempt to halt the seal slaughter. The Norwegian ship, which Tuesday scouted the small group of islands where the seals are located, returned to Kirkwall for discus sions with two representatives of the Scottish Department ol Agricul ture and Fisheries. The hunt for 5,000 seals, including 4,000 pups, was scheduled to start Wednesday. There was no indication of the nature of the talks on land. Pete Wilkinson, a spokesman for Greenpeace at Kirkwall said the meeting appeared to be “slightly unusual since communications between the government and the sealing operation are usually hand led by radio. But he was not optimistic that the hunt would be stopped and said Greenpeace members were ready to take action, including placing themselves between the seals and the hunters. tection under the law. “I really think we re going to get together (with the credit union),” she said. “I owe about $7,000 and the house needs about $3,000 in re pairs. I think that as long as I pay the bills I will be able to keep the house. ” Mrs. Martin said the riding rein forced the feeling that women in Louisiana still “are treated like ani mals.” “Tm very disgusted,” she said. “It’s an unreal situation in our coun try and in this world where women are really treated like animals.

Mrs. Martin claimed her es tranged husband insisted on placing a second mortgage on their house to help his mother pay off debts. She said she told her husband she could not meet the payments, and the credit union sued when it received only $50 in payments. Mrs. Martin failed to file a con sent declaration with the mortgage papers that would have prevented her husband’s unilateral action. mm MU If you want the real thing, not frozen or canned . . .
