On stage, Jimmy McGary is a bearded giant hugging a tenor sax the size of a 1949 De Soto. At Dee Felice's funeral last week, a hornless McGary was a sad wee leprechaun of a man. Grieving in silence, he stood at the end of the line of mourners paying their last respects to the well-known, much-liked drummer, club owner and patron saint of unemployed musicians who lost a two-year battle with cancer Aug. 31. McGary's fellow musicians showed their grief in different ways. Pianist Steve Schmidt played the soft, warm ballads Felice loved to accompany with his silky brushwork. Guitarist Kenny Poole walked up to the casket, hugged Felice's daughter, Shelly DeFel-ice, and then stepped back. Poole slowly took out his wallet. From it, he carefully removed a guitar pick. With tears gliding down his face, he slid the pick into the breast pocket of Felice's sport coat. In the back of the room, the talk turned to the future. Everyone, from a fellow musician, vocalist Larry Kinley, and a fellow club owner, the Blind Lemon's Eddie Sheppard, to a fellow fashion plate, Dino's owner, Bob Elkus, was wondering what was going to become of the Dee Felice Cafe, the Covington, Ky., club Felice opened in 1984 to serve Cajun and Creole cooking with jazz. "I'm going to keep it going for him," Shelly DeFelice says. "When we opened the club, he told me, 'I'm doing this for you.' Now, I'm doing this for him." She aims to keep her father's memory alive by operating the cafe, maintaining the seven bands playing under his name and releasing recordings from tapes he made during his career, which began at the age of 14 in the Western Hills High School's marching band and ran through stints with James Brown and Mel Torme as well as fronting his own groups, the Dee Felice Trio, Dee Felice and the Mixed Feelings, the Dee Felice Sleep Cat Band and the Dee Felice Big Band.

"I have stacks and stacks and stacks of reel-to-reel tapes of live recordings from (such long-gone Cincinnati clubs as) the Living Room, the Playboy Club, the Blue Angel and all kinds of tapes of the big band. Getting these tapes on record is my next major project." No major changes are planned at the club, save one. Shelly DeFelice wants to do something her father would never let her do: hang his photos on the walls. "We had a great picture a guy painted of dad playing drums. We had it up and dad said, 'You gotta take it down. It's not right.' He was so humble. He never wanted any picture or article of him on a wall in the club. "But now nobody can see him up there on stage, behind the drums, going like this," she says, doing a sly nod. "That's how he would recognize you when you walked into the room. "Oh, if I could only see him do that. But I can't. So, the next best thing is to put up the pictures. "People gotta see him. I want them to know who he is and what a great-lookin' guy he I have trouble talking about him in the past tense was." Shelly DeFelice wants people to remember her father. So do Jimmy McGary and Katie Laur. As they stood together at Felice's funeral, McGary stared forlornly at the drummer's casket. "Katie," McGary said with a weary sigh, "my generation is gone." "Yeah," Laur drawled, and putting put her arm around McGary's shoulder, added, "but not forgotten."

Roy Watford intends to find out by following a high-nutrition, low-calorie diet that has increased the life spans of laboratory animals 40-60. The 74-year-old Californian pathologist is one of eight scientists who will soon spend two years in Biosphere II, a greenhouse microcosm of Planet Earth, in the Arizona desert. September's Walford profile accompanies, "Feeding Frenzy," a special section on the maze of available advice on what to eat, what to avoid, and why. LEAR'S Twiggy the string bean with doe eyes. Just a look or more? The September profile presents Twiggy Lawson, now 42, talking with humorous candor about her successes and failures, and the "madness" of her four-year modeling stint in the 1960s. She recently moved from London to Los Angeles, where she'll co-star in the new CBS sitcom Princesses. Noteworthy fashion features include the best of the fall collections from Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. Magazine Rack appears each Wednesday in Tempo. VANITY FAIR October s hot cover fades to tepid profile as Jessica Lange talks about the tangle of men in her life. Pegged to this winter's release of the Cape Fear remake (with Robert De-Niro), the Lange profile is mostly old history with one brief summer interview for spice. Less heat and more interesting: Ann-Margret retaking Broadway. Strange glimpses of the late Jerzy Kosinski via photographer Czeslaw Czaplinski. ESQUIRE Detecting a societal shift away from cynicism and toward something dubbed "The New Sincerity," the September issue has a lot of fun making the case. Examples: Jay Leno over David Letterman on The Tonight Show. Northern Exposure over Twin Peaks. Colin Powell over Oliver North. Chicago Bulls over Los Angeles Lakers. Kevin Cost-ner over Bill Murray. Well, OK, not every example is a winner. But the attempt is sincere. Really.

"We just don't think birds are the end of it." As part of his effort to broaden the appeal and build the society membership, Berle recently abandoned its emblem. The graceful egret in flight gave way to a corporate-style logo with a flag motif that puts Les Line, whom Berle removed last spring after 25 yedrs of editing Audubon magazine, in mind of "a certain brand of roach killer." As a casualty in Berle's drive to remake the, society's image through its most visible platform, Line is not impartial. But his analysis of larger forces at work in the environmental movement has a compelling ring: "The naturalists have been replaced by ecocrats who are more comfortable on Capitol Hill than in the woods, fields, meadows, mountains and swamps.

It's an identity any environmental group would covet. But to Peter A.A. Berle, the lawyer who took over the venerable conservation organization in the mid-1980s, it's all wrong. "The bird image hurts us," declares one Berle associate. "The old school of conservationists, who were interested in wildlife for wildlife's sake, are dying out. We're left with a populace that is interested in the environment to the degree that it touches their private lives, i.e., waste disposal." Critical view However that may be, reporter Dyan Zaslowsky makes a persuasive case in the September-October Harrowsmith Country Life that the changes Berle is carrying out at the National Audubon Society court its self-destruction. As prominent an old friend of the society as Roger Tory Peterson told Zaslowsky that John James Audubon would be "absolutely bewildered" by the changes. Zaslowsky acknowledges that Berle put a financially messy house in order. But she wonders openly about his wisdom in spending members' contributions on a brand-new headquarters building, expensive image consultants and protracted legal wrangling with the New York State Audubon Society. nomsscs HOT SHOTS PS331 CINCINNATI EABTOATE 1:25; 3:20; 5:20; 7:40; 0:35 1:25; IM; 6:20; 7:40; 0:35 BPRINOOALE ERLANOER ' 1:25; 3:20; 5:20; 7:40; 0:35 1:25; 3:20; 5:20; 7:40; 0:35 NOMiKi TERMINATOR 2 LTTJ CINCINNATI EABTOATE 1 00; 4:00; 7:15; 10:05 1:00; 4:00; 7:15; 10:05 BPRINOOALE ERLANOER 1:00; 4:00; 7:15; 10:05 1:00; 4:00; 7:15; 10:05 101 DALMATIANS 5T CINCINNATI EABTOATE 1:05; 2:45; 4:25; 5:00 1:05; 2:45; 4:25 BPRINOOALE ERLANOER 1:05; 2:45; 4:25; 6:00 105; 2:45; 4:25; 6:00 THE DOCTOR ESQ CINCINNATI EABTOATE 1:30; 4:20; 7:20; 0:50 1:30; 4:20; 7:20; 0:50 BPRINOOALE ERLANOER 1:30; 4:20; 7:20; 0:50 1:30; 4:20; 7:20; 0:50 DEAD AGAIN I CINCINNATI BPRINOOALE 1:05; 3:25; 8:35; 7:50; 10:05 1:05; 3:25; 5:35; 7:50; 10:05 BINGO iffi CINCINNATI I ERLANOER 1D0; 5:30 1:00; 5:15 MOBSTERS la CINCINNATI ,a.1)00 HARLEY DAVIDSON ' t MARLBORO MAN ffTJ CINCINNATI 7;4M;M mm CINCINNATI'S Zm. bjCl CT MOST LUXURIOUS THEATERS I I FOREST FAIR MALL AX BIGGS PLACE MALL N EXIT 39 OFF 1-275 EXIT 63-B OFF 1-275 2 753-6588 ROBIN HOOD IFffTO CINCINNATI EABTOATE 1:15; 4:15; 7:10; 10:00 7:10; 10:10 BPRINODALI ERLANQER 1:15; 4:15; 7:10; 10:00 1:15; 4:15; 7:10; 10:00 IEASTMASTEP.il E233) CINCINNATI EABTOATE 1:00; 3:15; 5:25; 7:35 1 00; 3:15; 5:25: 7:35; 0:45 BPRINODALI .
