Page fen WHO'S BALDY? Maximilian Schcll sports an exposed dome and beard for his role in American Film Theater's "Man in the Glass Booth." Costar Lois Nettleton got a haircoloring and new accent. Art triumphs over long hours, low pay By Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD - (NEA) The American Film Theater, which had some successes and some failures in its first ambitious season, is back with a second year of plays- into-films efforts. The hallmark of the project appears to be excellent properties, excellent casts, excellent directors — but low budgets, which mean a relatively rapid shooting schedule. They are making "The Man in the Glass Booth," for example, in 25 days. Arthur Hiller is directing the Robert Shaw play, with a cast headed by Maximilian Schell and LOis Nettleton. Schell admires the AFT project, because he says it means good casts on good plays. He says he would never do this part on the stage — "It's too long and too tiring" — but welcomes the chance to do it on film. He is bald and bearded for the part. His leading lady, Lois Nettleton, is changed too. Her blonde hair is a few shades darker, and she is using an accent, "This is the hardest accent I've ever done," she says, "and I've done a lot of accents." It is so hard that she's afraid of losing it from day to day. So shtikisn't taking any chances -*fshe's speaking with her accent even off camera, day and night. She's playing a Sabra (native-born Israeli) lawyer. The part was written for a man by Shaw and played by men on stage. Nobody knows why it was changed for the film and she and Hiller decided that there should be just a slight accent. "I had never been to Israel," she says, "and I knew no Israelis. I had no idea of their speech patterns. From what I could find out, there were many different accents in Israel." She began studying up on Israel and Israelis — "I always like to immerse myself in my roles" — and went to various Israeli agencies in Los Angeles. At one, she met a young Sabra girl, recently arrived for a tour of duty here. "She had just the accent I wanted," Lois says. "I got friendly with her and we spent an entire day together. I taped her and I'm copying the way she talks. From time to time, I play the tape to refresh myself. ' Nobody talks much about how much money the actors are making for these AFT projects, but it isn't much. Everybody works on considerably less salary than they usually demand. The general rumor is that they make about one-eighth their ordinary salary. 'I love doing this," Lois says, "no matter what the money is, because it's such a good part, with such good people, in such a good production." One j thing they all like is •Hiller's insistence on a lengthy rehearsal period. For "The Man in the Glass Booth," they rehearsed for two weeks together before they shot a single frame of film. , '«ir'V\V VJ--WY r*qffij$W'"\1jg%jp{^W//ff//fWII//IIIU& BOOK REVIEWS THE WOMAN HE LOVED. By Ralph G. Martin. Simon and Schuster. 503 Pages. Ralph Martin's new look at the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, their romance and its consequences, is billed as the first impartial, unauthorized account of the well-known love story. The author of "Jennie: The Life of Lady Randolph Churchill," has another best-seller on his hands, Far-reaching research, interviews with friends of both the Duke and Duchess and, finally, interviews with the Duchess herself combine to make his account completely engrossing. W a 11 i s Warfield Spencer Simpson Windsor made the journey from Baltimore to London to life in Paris with seeming ease. Martin details some of the hardships and problems involved in the change from Maryland belle to former King Edward VIII's consort. The details of the Duchess's romance in Washington with Argentine diplomat Don Felipe A. Espil are recounted at length. Friends said Espil was the one true love of Wallis Windsor's life, and that she would have married him had he asked her. Certainly just as fascinating are details from interviews of friends around the couple during their romance, the abdication and their eventual marriage in France. The Puke's subsequent efforts to have bis family accept the Duchess are especially touching. Martin details the pair's controversial trip to Germany during Hitler's prewar reign and Us political repercussions. Sometimes it seems no detail is too trivial fur inclusion in this account. But all in all the new look at the Windsors and their life is dramatic, fascinating reading. Certainly it is a gossipy, candid account of a , great love story that romantics adore. Eye SJbyarbutt Associated Press THE ADVENTURES OF GOD IN HIS SEARCH FOR THE BLACK GIRL. By Brigid Brophy. Atlantic-Little, Brown. This collection of 20 fables and a short novel might aptly have been subtitled "The Wit and Wisdom of Brigid Brophy" for in it Miss Brophy makes stunning, often spectacular use of those two valuable — but rare — qualities. The title story, for example, is a beautifully done exercise which details the efforts of God, "a respectable, tallish, rather Roman-Senatorial man with a white beard," to dramatically demonstrate that he is a fictitious character. To help him in his efforts, he enlists the help of Voltaire, Gibbon and Shaw and after some widely humorous discourses and adventures the little group comes up with a seemingly workable plan. In "A Literary History," Miss Brophy outlines step by logical step her "proof" that Ambrose Bierce did not die as believed but instead became the South American writer Jorge Luis Borges. Her arguments are quite reasonable. At least they are until the reader •tomes upon another fable a bit further on titled "Democracy" in which Miss Brophy skillfully, and wittily, destroys the meaning of "reasonable." "The Two Emperors" is a succinctly put tale in which the perfect solution to the arms race is found and then lost when the power to control a nation's destiny falls from the hands of gentle men into those of more violent persuasion. A couple of the fables in this collection are just a bit too arch to sit comfortably with the reader, but the great majority are first-class productions and most entertaining to read.

'Bomber' named in indictment LOS ANGELES (Af) - A 31- year-old Yugoslavian immigrant, accused of terrorizing las Angeles as the so-called "alphabet bomber," has been named in a 25-counl indictment. Muharem Kurbegovic was charged by the county grand jury with 3 murder counts, 6 arson counts, 15 counts of violating laws on use of destructive devices and one count of willful and malicious burning of personal property. Superior Court Judge Raymond Choate set Oct. 2 for arraignment of Kurbegovic after the indictment was announced on Wednesday. He was also ordered held without bail as he has been since his arrest Aug. 22. Charges in the indictment stem mainly from a Aug. 6 explosion at Los Angeles International Airport in which three persons were killed and 35 injured in the Pan American World Airways section of the international terminal. Fifty-seven witnesses appeared before the grand jury, including survivors of the blast that rocked the busy airport, shattering windows and scattering bodies and furniture. Some arson charges stem from two fires last July 4 at apartment complexes in suburban Marina.Del Rey. The "alphabet bomber" terrorized metropolitan residents after claiming responsibility for the airport bombing. He vowed to spell out "in blood" the name of his organization, "Aliens of America," if demands for better treatment of aliens and the repeal of sex laws were not met. THE A FAMILY' LAWYER HOPE (ARK.) StAR Dr. Lamb Thursday. September 26, iS?4 Wif© plans meals for hubby's health fly Lawrence E. Lamb, M.t). DEAR DR. LAMB - My husband, 42, had a moderate heart attack eight weeks ago. He still is off work, weak and tires so easily. We both live in fear of another attack. I'm hoping with proper care, a proper diet, and rest he will live a long life. I have heard you have a book on food and diets with recipes. This is a whole new world to me, and I need all the help I can get. The book store here does not have the book. Please tell me how to get one as I want to do everything I can to help my husband regain his health. DEAR READER - Your husband is fortunate to have a wife who wants to make the extra effort necessary to help him. It's true that you need help to plan meals that are low in fat, low in cholesterol and designed to prevent heart and vascular disease. It is well and good to tell a patient he needs to do these things, but you can't do it very well without some guidelines. To limit the fat calories in the diet to 35 per cent of the calories consumed you need to be able to know how much fat in calories, not grams, is in the food you eat. The book includes a listing of almost all common foods and their values in calories, plus the recipes you mentioned. It is designed for people like you. You can get it by ordering it direct. Write to The Viking Press, 625 Madison Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10022, and ask for my book, "What You Need to Know About Food and Cooking for Health" (price $10.00). It' is good to follow such a plan after a heart attack, but I would be much happier if people would follow these principles before they get sick. A good program can go a long way toward preventing a heart attack in the first place. DEAR DR. LAMB Please tell me what to do about leg cramps. Sometimes at night a cramp occurs in the calf of my left leg. Nothing relieves it but to get out of bed and walk around. DEAR READER - It is best to prevent them and to do that it is helpful to know what is causing them. Some of them are from poor circulation to the legs. If the problem of circulation is bad enough then in selected cases surgery is indicated. A detour around a blocked artery can improve the situation remarkably. In other instances there is a problem in circulation stimulated by smoking cigarettes. The cramps are a symptom of this problem. Certainly it is important to receive good treatment for this and, of course, to stop smoking. Some people are helped by taking calcium. A high percentage of the American population has a dietary deficiency of calcium. Many leg cramps are not related to any real disease or problem the doctor can define. If you keep the legs warm it will help a lot in preventing the cramps. Many of my readers have reported success by wearing good, warm socks to bed. If you have cramps in the summer months wear them to bed then also. A warm blanket or any means used to keep those feet and legs warm at night seems to work wonders. But, if you have lots of trouble or keeping them warm doesn't help, then I really think you should have an examination to be sure you don't have a problem with your circulation to your legs.

(NEWSPAPER ENTKKPKISK ASSN.i "Command" Performance Three days before concert time, a rock singer informed the promoter that he had changed his mind about doing the show. The promoter hastened into a local courtroom for help. "I want a court order commanding him to perform," he said, "That is what he agreed to do when he signed his contract." But the court denied the promoter's request. The court said it had no authority to force an unwilling man to sing.

Then the Professor led his jack of hearts. East could do nothing better than to rise with the ace and lead the suit back. The Professor won with dummy's king discarding a club from his hand; ruffed dummy's last heart; cashed his ace of trumps; and showed his hand. He explained: "I am going to play my last high diamond. West's best play will be to discard. Then I will ruff my little diamond and lead a trump. West will have to lead a club or give me a ruff and discard. Either way I will only have to lose one club trick." (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) This is the law's usual attitude with regard to contracts that call for personal service of one kind or another. Although the courts may award dollar damages for breach of contract, they generally won't force a singer to sing, a painter to paint, or a baseball player to play baseball. Why? Because, say the courts, it would be too hard to tell whether the performer—acting under compulsion—was really doing a good job or was only going through the motions. Furthermore, a forced performance is considered too close to involuntary servitude. Courts are reluctant, said one judge, to "turn contracts of service into contracts of slavery." (In that case, he refused to force a dancer to dance.) Sometimes, however, a court will put indirect pressure on the performer by at least forbidding him to "do his thing" for anybody else. Thus, a basketball star who broke his contract was ordered by a court not to play for another team. But even this lesser form of pressure is used only if the performer's services are unique— that is, if his employer cannot find a reasonably satisfactory substitute. For example: A piano company went to court to prevent a disgruntled salesman from going to work for another firm. But the court decided that the circumstances did not justify such a drastic order. The court said the company was not facing any "irreparable harm," since it could hire another salesman to do pretty much the same job. An American Bar Association public service feature by Will Bernard. By Oswald & James Jacoby The professor won the diamond lead with dummy's king and promptly played the king of spades. East showed out. The student gasped, "Haven't you finally gone wrong?" "Not at all," replied the Professor." The odds are that if trumps break 3-0, East would hold them. I still have a very good chance to make my contract. If I had played trumps the other way and West showed out I would surely be set." Then the Professor proceeded to make his contract. He led a diamond to his ace. If West had ruffed it would have been too bad but The bidding has been: 26 West Pass Pass Pass Pass North 14 3* 44 4N.T. 5N.T.

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - After providing a temporary home for 300 young men from 38 states and six foreign countries, Nearly Home has been closed permanently because of a lack of operating funds. Bill Pruessing, the founder and director of the 3-year-old shelter for men 17-21, said Wednesday that inflation had slowed contributions and that it was decided to close the home now rather than to try to struggle along another month or two. "The reason for doing it now is that we didn't want to get the boys enrolled in school only to have them have to change schools in the middle of the terra," Pruessing said. The six youths at Nearly Home when it was closed were sent home or back to the institutions that referred them to Nearly Home. Nearly Home was for youths who had never been in trouble with the law. Its motto was, "Let's keep the good guys good." Pruessing said Nearly Home is about $900 in debt. Toe Rev. Thomas Walsb WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) The Rev. Thomas J.
