Pnina Rosenblum, one of Israel's top models, looks almost as good in an army uniform as she does in a bikini. In fact, since "Rosie" was inducted seven months ago, her commanding officers have found her appearance so disconcerting that recently they decided to let her go. "It was because I was too sexy," says the 36-24-36 blond. The army has a different story. "She was released." sniffed a spokesman, "because of her failure to integrate in the army and her demonstrated lack of interest in adjusting."
A bravely smiling Charles Evers—mayor of Fayette, Miss. and brother of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers—met newsmen after being indicted by a federal grand jury for income tax evasion. Although Evers, 51, says he is innocent, the government claims he owes $50,000 in back taxes.

On and off the tennis court, former Florida Secretary of State Richard Stone likes to project the image of a winner. Perhaps that's why Stone, a Democratic primary candidate for U.S. Senate, decided to take a carefree leap over the net after victory in a recent campaign tennis match. But Stone was more adept at getting the ball over the net than himself. After a disastrous four-point landing, Stone managed a brave smile—despite a gash over his eye and a broken arm.
