Hoax Revealed LADYSMITH, Wis. (AP) ThP "while lady" who haunted the lovers' lane near here brought a serious case of Halloween fever as the traditional season of ghosts and witches approached. The "whire lady" was first reported at a secluded spot where high school lovers often park, but reported sightings soon c me in from all over. An estimated 150 people crammed into the lovers lane area Monday night, hoping to catch a glimpse the "lady" but she did not reveal herself. The reason. Dahlke said, was that two teen-age humans admitted being the sorcerers who conjured the "spirit." But there have been very few lovers In the lane since the "white lady" appeared.

Dublin Festival Becomes Big International Event READER'S DIGEST DHBLL ,UPI! lwo ttlfhS t'ULIl M'dl lilt' UR'aitT in I fi fur --i'"- - nun - Ht -"I "ill mi 1 1 il tit mi -t n i ill i Ireland loaves its conventional home to stage a whirligig of contrasts in drama, production and acting that has rapidly become a major international event. The Dublin Theater Festival sets out to cater to every taste and, if one is to judge by audience reaction, it is succeeding admirably. In pocket-size theaters, in conventional settings, in hotel ballrooms and amidst the baronial splendor ot the great Irish mansions, theater-lovers are being treated at a feast of drama that travels the full range of human emotions. Old-time revues: stark, single scene productions; sultry plots of neurosis. Incest in the Tennessee Williams belt of the American Deep South; rapier wit and heavy acting; they all are to be found among the 2i offerings at the festival. Initial interest centered on the play "After The Fall" by New York playwright Arthur Miller. Although some critics believe it is .based on his broken marriage to the late film actress Marilyn Monroe, the play failed to impress the critics. "Much too long to sustain Interest," was the consensus. . The play, which aroused much controversy on its 14 -6 , il ll LfHOCK-RESISTANli premiere In the United States, had the advantage over all other productions of some intense advance publicity. Each year some actor or actress or playwright walks away with the honors. And this year it looks as if young Irish playwright Hugh Leonard is going to be the man. His "The Au Pair Man," which had its world premiere at the Gate Theater, was a dazzling cascade of wit in the Oscar Wilde tradition. Its impact on the audience and critics alike was enormous and he found a perfect vehicle in actress Joan Greenwood, w hose talents have carried her to success on the screen, stage and on television. Directed by Ted Kotcheff, who has done much work in television in Canada and Britain, "The Au Pair Man" is high comedy of unusual merit and wit. No festival would be complete without a work of the late Brendan Behan, the lovable, rollicking Irish playwright who lost his epic battle with the bottle and who died leaving a vast potential tragically untapped. The Abbey Theater, which Brendan once scoffingly dismissed as the "bacon and eggs theater," will run his "Borstal Boy," while the Peacock Theater will show "An Giall" the original Gaelic version of his most widely recognized work, "The Hostage." Organizers were openly jubilant at the interest the festival has aroused both among Irish and international drama circles. Read these true stories about people who have been helped by Congressman Ed Gurney.They're only a few of hundreds of cases in Gurney's file-but they will show you why he'll make a great Senator.

Grand Opening For our 11th Season Arthur Jattte "You know, it's pretty discouraging when you buy a house and call several times for repairs that are never made. Especially when your husband is in Vietnam. FHA helped us buy that house and were supposed to pay tor the repairs we just kept being put off though. The repairs are now in progress, however, thanks to -Consressffisa-Ed -Curney. I called him and fie wenhight to-work on the problem. We expect the repairs to be finished real soon." "When a man pays taxes every year, right on time he expects to get his refund if he has it coming. Five months, a lot of talk, and a lot of paper work and I got nothing from Internal Revenue, I got my refund only after Congressman Ed Gurney stepped in. I told him about my problem and he called Internal Revenue directly. In a short time the whole problem was straightened out." "I had disability payments coming and couldn't get any action out of the Veterans' Administration. Congressman Ed Gurney heard about my problem and went to work on it. He called the Veterans' Administration alid in a short period of time I had a reinstatement of my pension and I can't tell you how much those payments help." "After making Social Security payments all those years, I retired but received no Social Security checks. Alter six months of talk ing to federal officials I found out they had lost my file. I called my Congressman Ed Gurney. He went straight to the Social Security Administration and got the whole thing straightened out. I'm now receiving monthly Social Security checks." -"I went througtrali the legal tangiramHederahedlapi trying to get a labor certification for Charles Peers a Canadian National. He was turned down at the Atlanta Regional office. I went to Congressman Ed Gurney for help. He called the Department of Labor directly and in no time had the problem solved. ' We got a labor certification and Charles Peers is now on the job." "You know, sometimes it takes a little extra help to cut federal red tape. Several times in the last tew years I've needed assistance with difficult problems. Most recently, my son was wounded in Vietnam. For 20 days I could find out nothing about his condition. I called Congressman Ed Gurney he cut the red tape and I got my questions answered in only two hours." "So there I was in New York with 600 crates of celery to be unloaded and this official tells me I gotta wait three days because of some legal technicality that I can't unload. Thinkin' it over, I took a chance and called my Congressman, Ed Gurney and you know what he went straight to the FTC in Washington and in an hour had the whole thing settled." 615 E. ATLANTIC AVE. DELRAY BEACH, FLA. With bookings up by more than 40 per cent over previous years they feel the festival has established itself on the international drama calendar. The impact of the festival on the theater In Ireland has extended far beyond Its annual two week blooming in the capital. Since its inception 11 years ago with the avowed intention of fostering a rebirth in playgolng among the Irish the festival's influence has been little short of dynamic.

A recent tour by the Abbey Players in rural Ireland drew packed houses In every major town they played, and there has been a marked increase in the number of new Irish playwrights presenting their works for inclusion In the festival.
