BlO-Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 HOROSCOPE Cobb: Thinking Man's Thespian white, and you've mellowed a little, grown a little more mature hopefully. "And the result Is far better not only because you live to fight another day but because the proportions are within reasonable reach. "The striving for perfection Is not in Itself a virtue. It's a good thing to instill in the young. But It isn't a virtue in Itself because It can interfere with realizable goals." Has Cobb readjusted his own sights over the years? "Hopefully. I admit that when I was younger I wasn't prepared to be that reasonable. You have to have gone to bed and wakened a minimum number of times to one day decide that It's not all black or - fJi: : n I ,-'-' I world I feel so strongly about It that I would rather the theater replaced a good part of our diplomacy in the world. "I think it is much more an amalgamating Influence for good in the world culture, not just theater but for my purposes, theater. More so I think than any other endeavor. "I'm not as hopeful of the diplomatic efforts aboard of really creating mutual understanding and peace. In a naive way perhaps I have more confidence in efforts of this kind." Increasing freedom of the individual both politically and artistically is conceded by the star, whose own troubles during the McCarthy era are a closed chapter, but not without some reservations. "I think the liberalization of our times has touched the theater as well as other aspects in our lives. But concurrently, irresponsible license has encroached on our avenues of communication and expression as well. Often one is confused for the other. "The license is the fact that anyone by virtue of his being a citizen can deliver himself of any notion, idea without fear either of bureaucratic censure or opprobrium by his colleagues. He has the right, there is no yardstick. I think it's chaos. I don't like that. "I don't want to imply that the answer is to take his right away. No, that's part of the price the exorbitant price in 1 bitions, aspirations. Seek reliable counsel.

EDITOR'S NOTE Lee J. Cobb, the burly actor known beat for his starring role in "Death of a Salesman," is returning to the stage after a 15-year hiatus. The part that has lured him back is Shakespeare's King Lear. By WILLIAM GLOVER M-;W YORK (AP) In rhe ihcater now," and there was gently grievance in the dark, familiar voice, "the actor is the only one who is expected to be a lover. "Everyone else is practical, hard headed. It wasn't so when I befian." This, continues J. Cobb, is why he's been absent from Broadway 15 years, endlessly doing films and TV that weren't nearly as gratifying. A man must eat to idealize another day, and he is a realistic romantic "I'm not sentimental about the theater" mildly self-mocking, accepting if not exactly liking the way the world spins. ' ."Very few things in movies afe creatively rewarding. But the economic consideration was very much a practical step on my part. I admit it." The man who earned stardom and enduring career identity as Willy Loman in Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" returned to the stage Nov. 7 in the challenge of "King Lear," his first brush . with Shakespeare since apprentice days. The production opened the Lincoln Center Repertory season at the Beaumont Theater. Reports from rehearsals are that the Sti-year-old headliner, lonce regarded as difficult, and Ihe young company have experienced salutary, mutual stimulation. . "It's no credit to anyone that he dreams of doing Lear ," Cobb deprecates why he said yes to this after turning down uncounted bids since his last visit here in 1953. His reason is oeeper. "I think any of the great plays involves all of us so deeply, and the areas for mutual, reciprocal involvement are shrinking so fast in the Palm Beach Jr. College Players Present "PHILADELPHIA, : HtRE I COME!" ; NOVEMBER 14,15,16,17 : 8:14 P.M.

He was won back to do "Lear" because he feels deeply that "great plays" are badly needed in this period of shifting values. THE LURE OF LEAR - Lee J. Cobb holds the title role of "King Lear" (at right). The production opened the Lincoln Center Repe-tory season at the Vivian Beaumont Theater. Cobb has been absent Kate Smith Happy With Her New beloved second home on an Island in Lake Placid, N.Y. Much of her time, too, is spent handling the financial affairs of Rated, the corporation she formed with Collins, which owns not only Kate Smith, per my opinion that we pay for freedom. "We are going through a period in the arts when never has mediocrity been so disproportionately rewarded as It Is now. We've got Innovators today who don't know what they're revolting against. "The ease of dissemination and the exploitation of It for business reasons has encouraged us to artificially auto-intoxicate Impulses however benighted. "We are also influenced by a contempt which is politically inspired and encouraged, against our heritage. This Is doing violence to our own lives." Which brings him back to this "King Lear" and a question: does the play have particular validity today? "The sad ihlng Is that a question like that can be legitimately put. Because to ask that question Is to be already suffering under some of the evils we touched on. Is mother love timely? If it doesn't make us squirm, is love timely? "When the time comes that one does not only ask is It apt to do Lear or timely and the question is merely rhetorical and you don't do It, I'll cash in my chips." Cobb expects to still be developing his concept of Lear "by the time we close. The reward is in the reaching." Talk of craft technique opens up reflections on broader matters, like a man's philosophic outlook. still young, she already has appeared as guest star on "Music Hall" and "The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show." Now it's "The Smothers Brothers" and on Nov. 27 there comes the "Jonathan Winters Show." Later there will be "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" "I don't know what they'll want me to do, but it probably will be fun" "Hollywood Palace" and, perhaps her favorite work-week of the season, "The Dean Martin Show." It was only four years ago that Kate, crushed and feeling inadequate after the death of her long-time business partner and manager, Ted Collins, was seriously contemplating retirement. The "new" Kate maybe not all new but a Kate Smith who is 57 pounds lighter than last season' model is so busy that her public relations man, George Bennett, complains mildly that he only sees her when she's being Interviewed. She flies to the coast for a week or two of television work with the casual . ir of a suburban commuter catching his morning train. She makes a minimum of three record albums a year. She takes on a concert date when the spirit moves her or the place interests her. She has no money problems. After Collins' death, Kate Kath to her friends decided to leave New York and Its memories and take up residence near the place in which she grew up. She took a long lease on an apartment In a Washington suburb and moved furniture, wardrobe and her collections. "Then, all of a sudden, I started working so much that I never had time to get there," she said. "In the two-and-one-half years I had the place, I spent 16 weeks there. I figured it had to be the most expensive closet pace In the world and I was stuck a lot of the time in hotel rooms in New York. So I moved back.' In her off-hours, she prowls the antique stores of the city and also manages to reserve plenty of time during the warm months to spend at her SHAKES MILK COFFEE By CYNTHIA LOWRY NEW YORK (AP) - Kate Smith, after five decades of reaching hearts and lifting spirits with her rich singing voice, now finds herself in what she calls "the most rewarding period of my life." Television's current passion for variety shows in assorted forms has given her long, successful entertainment career now direction and fresh stimulus. The songbird of the South, the woman who has moved that moon over thousands of mountains, has become a Jet-age wandering minstrel. With the television season Still the Finest Recreation of them all.

"Ail this has been a rebirth of myself and, of course, a new career," she said happily.

On the other hand, she enjoys the savors "the beat and sound of contemporary music." In fact her next album will be a salute to the Jimmy Webbs and Burt Bacharchas of the young generation. "The new sound is like a shot In the arm Just what singers and musicians needed," she said. Miss Smith, who will be 60 next May, has been singing before audiences since she was 8. She became a professional at 18. Appearing in her second broauway show, she was spotted by Ted Collins, a record company representative, who signed her to a recording contract. r WALGREEN Good j 12, J ' '7 ' I Hrn op?-: $ '-,: '1; r ' m p y ; " " ' T V. .
