STEWART FIGHTS 'A LOUSY COLD'

Actor James Stewart, who was to have received a honorary law degree from Pepperdine University on Friday, canceled his appearance because he has "a lousy cold," his publicity agent said.

Stewart, 82, the gangly, slow-speaking, reluctant hero of 80 films, also has been forced to cancel other engagements, said his agent, John Strauss.

Stewart, who commanded a bomber squadron in the Second World War, was nominated six times for Oscar awards and won one, for his role opposite Katharine Hepburn in "The Philadelphia Story" in 1940.
