20 Years Ago In CED History:

June 15, 1983:
* In a series of three cases, the U.S. Supreme Court limits the power of state
and local governments to restrict access to legal abortion. The rulings bolster

an abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy.

June 16, 1983:

chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet, or president.

recommends after a two-year study that the U.S. government pay $20,000 to each
of the 60,000 surviving Japanese-Americans who had been placed in detention
camps during World War II.
* Pope John Paul II returns to his native Poland for a second visit that had
profound political as well as religious implications. The pontiff met twice
with Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski, Poland's premier, and once with Lech Walesa, who
had headed Solidarity, the independent federation of labor unions that had been
outlawed by the government. During his visit, the pope openly calls for a
return to the agreements of August 1980 that had led to the establishment of
* U.S. senators raise their annual salaries to $69,800 and delay until 1984 any
limit on income from speeches and writing.

in Stuttgart; budget matters head the agenda.

Challenger, is launched from Cape Canaveral with a crew of five, including Dr.

* Paul A. Volcker is appointed by President Reagan to a second term as chairman
of the Federal Reserve Board.
* During a 17-day session that began June 6, the National People's Congress of
China appoints Li Xiannian president, a largely ceremonial position not
occupied since 1968.

June 19, 1983:
* Larry Nelson wins the U.S. Open Golf Tournament at the Oakmont Country Club
near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Tom Watson, who won the Open the previous year,
was the leader until falling behind on the 16th hole.

workers equally in providing health benefits for their spouses.

Back in 2002 I submitted this question about my CED player.

I can't find the solution that some one sent me, but they recommended that
the audio chip be replaced.  If you know of the solution please send it to

I believe the player is a RCA SGT075

Thansk again.

Subject: Desktop Picture of Gregory Peck CED's

Hello All:

I took the front cover images of eight Gregory Peck movies on the CED Magic
CD-ROM and made a 4 x 2 matrix of them which you can download and display as
the background of your computer desktop. The first image is 1920 x 1200 pixels
- the exact dimensions of Apple's 23-inch Cinema Display. This image will
automatically scale down to Apple's smaller widescreen format displays:

The next two images are in the 1024 x 768 and 800 x 600 resolutions commonly
used on Windows PC's. Because these resolutions are in the more square 4:3
ratio, it was necessary to put a black bar above and below the image to avoid
excessive scrunching:

Mr. Peck actually appeared on the front covers of nine CED titles, but it was
necessary to leave one of them out to get a wider-than-tall rectangular image.
I left "The Sea Wolves" out, since to me, it seems to be his least
memorable CED role.
