Kansas By Richard Robinson The Rolling Stones were in the center of a major controversy this week which is holding up the release of their latest album, "Beggars Banquet" The Stones, who have absolute artistic control over their albums, want the cover to depict a bathroom wail with graffiti scribbling such lines as "John Loves Yoko," referring to John Lennon and his girl friend Yoko Ono. Apparently their American record company isn't as excited as the musicians are over the effect such an album cover would have here. So the album has been held up until a decision can be made. This has been going on for some weeks now and may continue unless Jagger gives in. Pat Paulsen, the comedian who has been running for president via "The Smothers Brothers Show" is planning a testimonial dinner supporting his candidacy in New York. His album, "Pat Paulsen for President" is being rushed out this week. Pat, by the way, got 51 write-in votes in the New Hampshire primary and was in Chicago trying to woo a few delegates over to his side. Bob Dylan, who has not appeared in concert since his motorcycle accident over a year ago, except for a Woodie Gutii- ne benefit, is reported to have agreed to make his first public appearance in concert next summer at the Singer Bowl at the World's Fair Grounds just outside New York. Dylan will give performances for three nights according to the latest report, and will presumably be backed by his band who recently re- APPAREL 610 Com'l Fashion Firsts by Totcne and King » V-Nccks • Turtles • Crews • Cardigans in New Fall Colors!

Composed of electronic sounds and a clap of thunder, the singb depicts the birth of man and has already begun to receive underground" airplay. The Young Rascals, who were awarded six gold discs last week for their iast two singles and four albums, grossed a near-record $82,000 for their Hollywood Bowl concert in Los Angeles earlier this month.

HELPS EMPORIA WELCOME OUR NEW NEIGHBORS FROM PALMERTON, PENNSYLVANIA Dear Ann Landers: Revcutly you accepted a suggestion from a well-meaning reader who came up with a safe way to smoke in bad. The woman said if a person trains himself to hold the cigarel between the middle and fourth fingers, the cigaret cannot drop out of his hands if he should fall asleep. "He will be awakened when the cigaret burns down to his fingers," she added. As chairman of the Emergency Rescue and First Aid Committee of the New York Firemen's Association, I hope you will retract that statement and tell your readers there is no safe way to smoke in bed. Bed-smokers run two risks. One is asphyxiation, the other is fire. The so-called "safe" way might awaken the smoker before he becomes roasted alive, but it would not prevent him from being asphyxiated by the smoldering of a wool blanket or a foam rubber mattress. Please take the word of a fireman who has carried out too many corpses. — R. E. G. Dear R. E. G.: It was dumb of me to have printed that woman's letter and I hereby accept 10 lashes with the old wet noodle. The correct advice is as follows: Do NOT smoke in bed. The ashes on the floor might be your own. •f t 1 Dear Ann Landers: Wilma and I went together for three years. I thought for sure we would be married. When she told me she had another guy she liked better I was shocked and hurt. But I wished her luck, told her to keep my ring and to forget about the $600 she owed me. Wilma and the guy took off for California and I was under the impression they were married but I was wrong. Six months later she came back to town — five months pregnant. Her boy friend had run out on her. She was broke and sick and hungry for a square meal. I told Wilma I still loved hve and asked her to marry me. We have been married two years and I never on'je mentioned the fact that the baby wasn't mine. I thought we were getting alone fine, untii two months ago when Wilma asked me to send her to California to visit her folks. They had never seen the baby. I worked on the car for two cíays getting it ready for the 200-mile trip to the airport. Last week Í got a letter from her saying she and the baby were not coming back. She said she has a job out there but I have a hunch she has teamed up again with the guy who got her pregnant. What do you think? —ANONYMOUS Dear Anon: Your story is a heart breaker, but I think you will be lucky in the long run if Wilma stays in California. *• i i Dear Ann Landers: My penmanship is absolutely terrible and 1 am ashamed of it. I have tried my darndest to improve but I am a hopeless case. A few weeks ago my father passed away and I had to acknowledge many bouquets and telegrams. 1 typed the thank- yon notes on my personal stationary and signed my name in ink. It came back to me that I was "a jerky dame who had no manners" bacause the notes should have been handwritten. I wish I couki have done the notes by hand but 110 one would have been able to read them. Am I "a jerky dame"? — THE SCRAWLER Dear S: Better to send a typewritten note than a handwritten note that is illegible. As a person who has seen a great deal of illegible handwriting, I'm with you. i i •( What awaits you on the other side of the marriage veil? How can you be sure your marriage will work?

Part of the original British group invasion, they had two big hits here. "She's Not There" and "Tell Her No." Although thej released an album at the time, which was very strange, hip and underground, by the way, thev get little notice. Now they aré back with another album "on a new label. Date (TES 40I3). It's not at a!! in tune with their earlier sound but it is interesting and, at some points, brilliant. Called "Odyssey and Oracle," the sound is full with a solid orchestra, and several numbers have haunting melodies. TI:e Zombies have basically a soft rock sound. They know how to work in a recording studio and tio everything on a very professional level, making the'album a polished, complete work of art Wild rumors that Eric Clapton will join the Rolling Stones after his own group breaks up at the end of the year are being flatly denied by Clapton and Stone lender Mick Jagger . . .
