Spanish King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia begin a five-day trip on Monday. Before the 1962 marriage, Greeks took to the streets to protest l a special tax levied to fund her dowry and wedding. • Still, her return isn't a problem for even the staunchest anti-monarchists. . ; "It's a non-event," said Socialist deputy loannis Kapsis. "We are indifferent." ! Greece abolished the monarchy in a 1974 referendum, with 70 percent voting against it. Sinatra buried with favorites LOS ANGELES — Frank Sinatra was buried with some of his favorite things: a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey, a pack of Camels, a Zippo lighter and 10 dimes. „ »;, Daughter Tina Sinatra said carrying the dimes dated back to the 1963 kidnapping of her brother when her father wartf- ed to make sure he always had pay phone change. Slje placed the dimes in his pocket. Her sister, Nancy, put the bottle of whiskey in Sinatra's pocket and someone else slipped in the cigarettes and lighter. Sinatra, 82, died May 14 of a heart attack. He was buried last week. From Wire Service Reports T ADVICE Readers debate singing of the national anthem Dear Ann Landers: I read the letter from "Seattle," who commented about how people mangle our national anthem. You are right, Ann. It's a disgrace. Now, I have to add my two cents' worth. I watched the opening game between the Anaheim Angels and the New York Yankees and was outraged at what went on during the rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Audience members did not stand, although it was suggested that they do so. Nor did they accept the invitation of the announcer to join in the singing. It is incomprehensible that people who live in the greatest country in the world refuse to acknowledge that blessing by singing its national anthem with pride and enthusiasm. ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. The players are equally disgraceful, standing slack-jawed, looking bored, chewing gum, spitting sunflower seed hulls and scratching themselves. These guys earn fabulous salaries, and yet, they are not thankful enough to stand up straight and sing. Please print this letter, and sign me — Senior Citizen from California Dear California: Here's your letter. I received several others on this subject, some from readers who were equally outraged. Take a look at my mail: Dear Ann: This is in response to the person who wrote to complain about pop singers who make hash out of our national anthem at sporting events. I wish to speak in defense of the perpetrators. As a professional musician, I can tell you "The Star-Spangled Banner" simply is too difficult to be sung properly by un• trained voices. The range is wide (more than an octave), the phrases are unusually long, the tempo is majestically slow, TV TONIGHT and the melody is full of leaps. Proper execution requires a trained vocalist, one with a well-developed range and good breath control. — Jane H., doctor of musical arts in Emporia, Kan. Dear Jane: Thanks for your professional opinion. Here are a few more: From Middle America: I want to say amen to the person who wrote to complain about the way our national anthem is butchered at sports events. "God Save the Queen," "Oh, Canada" and "La Marseillaise" are not rocked, jazzed up or screamed. National anthems in other countries are sung with reverence and pride. Boston, Mass.: Freedom of expression is one of the privileges Americans value most, but please, not with our national anthem. I wish those innovative folks would express themselves some other way. Boone, N.C.: People who mangle the national anthem should not be criti- cized. They are doing the best they can. Until we replace "The Star-Spangled Banner" with something that is simple to sing, like "God Bless America" or "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," ..we will continue to hear our national an-' them sound like someone has put a : f,ew too many away. Grand Forks, N.D.: I carry earplugs when I go to a sports event where I know, the national anthem will be sung. I put fhe plugs in right before "land of the freeeee and the home of the brave." It helps. ' Los Angeles: What are they teaching kids in school these days? One thing they are not teaching them is the words to : tfur! national anthem. When I was in the fourth grade, we learned "The Star-Spangled Banner" and were told to stand up straight when we sang it — or else. Is patriotism dead all over or just in California? ; Dear Los Angeles: I live in Chicago, and patriotism is alive and well here. Anybody in California want to respond? 5/24/98 7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30 7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30 10:00 10:30 9PBS, Bunker Hill-Hays National Memorial Day Concert (CC) 83144 Masterpiece Theatre 227989 Murder 88182 MrBean 64502 IS MTV load Rules Road Rules Darla 17 Beavls 62027 NBC, Wichita flovle "Beethoven's" Cont'd I Movie **» "Guarding Tess" (1994), Nicolas Cage 4453 News 6803279 Seinfeld [B The Nashville Network i-Fish 931927 Bill Dance Out.
