Mrs. Levant Lets Oscar Come Home HOLLYWOOD ~(UPI)_ Pianist Oscar Levant and his wife, June parted about three weeks ago after a violent, shoe-throwing argument, were back together todsy for a trial reconciliation. , What passes for matrimonial bliss once again settled over the couple's Beverly Hills home where Oscar returned with a three-day growth of whiskers and several dirty shirts. News that the couple had kissed end made .up-sheathing their barbed comments-was announced Jast n.ght to Oscar's television audience, apparently endin-j Mrs ' Levant's threat to divorce the acid-tongued pianist. "''m the house-broken cobra who made headline stories today (referring to the reconciliation). I had a minor, domestic difference which ended when I ran out of lighter fluid and clean shirts." "This is the most warlike reconciliation I've ever heard of." Oscar said, but June countered: "This is a trial reconciliation." Asked if the reconciliation would mean the end of Mrs. Levant's divorce suit, Levant snorted. "Divorce? What divorce? Let her divorce her lawyer." After Mrs. Levant, a former singer and dancer, broke off with Oscar, she acquired her own television show. She formerly served as Levant's foil on his program. "It looks like everything will work out now," said Mrs. Levant. M I hope *o." They have been married for 18 year* and hive three daughters.
