Her Paintings Will Benefit Rusk Institute By VEDA GRAVES Staff Writer Twenty-four vibrant paintings by Palm Beach Ar-itst Marie Hetherington are on display at the Kenyon Galleries in New York City to benefit its Medical Center and Rusk Institute. The show will run through Dec. 19th. The wild creatures portrayed, from cheetahs, to zebras and birds to frogs, reflect a reverence for life and appreciation of the "natural grace God gave these forms of life," as the artist says. This is the year for hanging of such beautiful creatures on the walls. And why? Because, the artist believes, people either envy or identify with the freedom they possess. In private life the artist is Mrs. William Morgan Hetherington, and she resides with her husband at 428 Chilean Avenue in Palm Beach. She hopes to fly to New York, weather permitting, for a fete in her and other exhibiting artists' honor, November 18th. A native of Virginia, Mrs. Hetherington spent a great part of her life in New York, on Long Island. She was a visitor to Palm Beach frequently since 1936, and settled in residence here about ten years ago. She has been involved in the community through the Institute of World Affairs and its Roundtable series, which she feels one of the best things ever to happen in Palm Beach. It has had a tremendous impact on people, she said, and affected the thinking, I believe, of people on the election. Most people are so busy, she added, that m.. - v rrt J&f-rima;:-.. v-. "''- LANDSCAPE STUDIED - Palm Beach artist Marie Hetherington gives a critical look at one of her landscapes, against a backdrop of her work. Still lifes and wild creatures are among her paintings. A-rri ' i r 1 s MitlilMi learning in depth, however desirable, just isn't accomplished on international issues. As an individual, Marie Hetherington has great personal hope for a lasting world peace, and believes it is attainable. "There must be a better answer to conflict than wars," she adds. Marie and her husband enjoy swimming and social pleasantries. She is proud of the fact he is not only an excellent tennis player but also has trophies to his credit. Last season she had a one-woman show at Galerie Montmartre on Worth Avenue where she again has been invited to show a collection. Following her present involvement in New York City she hopes to concentrate on readying a local exhibit, possibly for early spring. That single little word, hope, is a key one in Marie Hetherington's vocabulary. Old Jokes Funny Today Marriage: A Laughing Matter WHICH NEXT? At left, as Jay Sherry (left) and Gerald Bold put together a puzzle, neither is aware that little Gerald is putting together his own little life through the training and play therapy. FRIEND ANSWERS -Wayne Brown (below) responds to the telephone call made by Gerald, and brings a big smile to his face. Daily pre-school classes are attended by the young victim of a shooting. shirts still come out blue or pink on occasion. She still loses socks. "Yes, it's clean," the husband says when she hands him the pink or blue shirt. "But when I gave it to you it was white." Take the kitchen. Long ago as today there are complaints when the food's too well done, too rare, too skimpv. too fatty. "My wife," the husband tells his friends, "serves well balanced meals. One day I complain and the next day the kids complain." Wachs says another area of married life in which humor is unchanged is bringing up children. "Parents today are more permissive than the ones of yesteryear but the jokes then as now are about rebellious and precocious children. "Son, it's about time we talked about sex," father says. "Okay, Dad, what do you want to know?" son replies. Wachs. father of three, lives in Searingtown, Long Island, N.Y. He claims couples who believe their problems unique and different from those that faced their parents are By PATRICIA MCCORMACK NEW YORK (UPI) - The next time pudding boils over, dog upsets cat's bowl of milk and a strap breaks on your bra all at the same time have a good hysterical fit of laughter. The alternative: Depression and that's bad. Ever since Eve and Adam started it all, laughter's what has kept marriages on a somewhat steady course. That's straight from Mark Wachs, author of a new book, "The Funniest Jokes and How to Tel! Them" Hawthorne. This very serious fellow, an authority on humor, has written other joke books. "Although we are living in a more sophisticated era, one of H-bombs, riots, strike and revolutions, people are still laughing at the same married-life jokes they laughed at 50 years or more ago," he said. "There are new space jokes, sick jokes, ethnic jokes, known-knoek jokes, but the situations that arise in marriage stay basically the same." Take the laundry, Fifty years ago a woman did all the washing by hand. Today she puts it all in the washing machine. Some of the white Mr "Maybe the locales and the standard of living have changed," be said, "but the problems are the same." Consider money. The following old money jokes work just as well today as they did years ago: "A bargain is something you can't resist at a price you cannot afford." "Starting from scratch isn't so hard it's starting without it that's relly tough." Consider, too, mother-in- -ljH--jk-cr -They haTfenT" changed. "I heard your mother-in-law was dangerously ill," the man says. "eah," the other man replies. "But she recovered and now she's dangerously well." Wachs' book doesn't contain any off-color jokes or any that make fun of religion. A reason for no off-color jokes: Pre-teeners are reading his book. One of his biggest fans is his son Scott, 9, who contributed a joke to the new book. "A nickel and a dime were standing on the edge of a shelf. Which fell off first?" Answer: The nickel. The dime had too much "cents" to take a tumble. Photos By Tony lies t!!. - J-- '' j .-v. - tifc : f !: - -v. ,gS -" J .SfWi .v F; vkCIIJZI fry. "j rj.

Nathalie Delon, sexy-looking wife of French film star Alain Delon, flew in to sign a couple of movie contracts, protected by police the while. Nathalie has been receiving ugly letters which have upset her terribly. The Paris uproar over the murder of her husband's bodyguard has far from died down. His Will's To Win He 's A Profile Of Courage c . .-.: v; ' ' , 'i , I I i i : j-i Tl y j Clin ...... U tjjfc jt-4'" What has happened to little Gerald Bolds since he was the victim of a shooting while innocently watching a television program at a neighbor's house? Then, as I told you, Marco Torlonia, of one ot Italy's finest families, went off and got married, very quietly, to Philippa de Nanteuil. It may sound simple, but really it was complicated and may be even more complicated when Marco's parents, Alessandro Torlonia, Prince of Civitella Cesi, and the Infanta Beatriz of Spain, daughter of the late King Alfonso XIII, recover from the shock. To go into it just a bit: Philippa, Australian born with an early-Picasso-painting look about her, divorced the Vicomte de Nanteuil some time ago. She hadn't married him in the church; therefore, on her part, she was free to contract a church marriage with Marco. Marco had been madly in love with Philippa for several years, ever since she broke off with Dino Pecci-Blunt, still atiother Italian aristocrat who travels in the international set. The trouble was Marco was then married to although completely separated from the former Orsetta Caracciolo. It was the sort of tragic situation that happens all the time everywhere and twice as often in Italy. Months ago Orsetta died at the age of 27 and Marco and Philippa were able to crown their dream of love with church bells. As Marco's father is not helping financially, the newly-weds' monetary situation is scarcely brilliant. To keep themselves in pasta, both have taken bit parts in pictures. Philippa is in a scene in Vittorio Gassman's new hit, "The Black Sheep," and Marco can be seen in the coming "The Adventurers." It would be too wonderful if she turned out to be Audrey Hepburn and he turned out to be Paul Newman. Still another Torlonia, Ines, who scandalized all Rome when she left her husband for love of Lillio R us poll of top Italian nobility, has grown tired of it all and left Lillio flat. Lillio himself had left his wife, Domitilla, after two decades of marriage to be with Ines so the scandal worked two ways. Now that Lillio's sweetie has flown, Roman bloods are wondering if he'll reconcile with Domitilla and his family. As for Ines, she has absolutely no intention of returning to her husband so let's hear another chorus of "Che Sera Sera" out there, please. There's more where that came from. In Turin, absolutely divine looking Antonella Agnelli has decided to leave her husband, Umberto. She turned up in the Grand Hotel in Rome surrounded by trunks and suitcases indicating a long stay, to put it mildly. Queen Frederika of Greece has been left in Rome without the solace of the presence of her son. King Constantine, and her daughter-in-law, Queen Anne Marie. Only temporarily, of course, but there you are. Frederika looked marvelous all in white at Artur Rubenstein's recital at the Sala dei Greci. The maestro's two appearances were sold out and all the beautiful people crowded the stage to congratulate him. After the concert Rubenstein and his wife Nela had supper with Wally Toscanlni and author ("The International Nomads," "The Golden Cases") Lanfranco Rasconi, just back from a London visit with the Douglas Fairbankses and a Paris sojourn with darling Daisy Sol da U. The Sacheverell Sitwells are about to descend (it's the only way they ever arrive any place) on Rome for a stay with ex-American Ambassador to Rome James Dunn and his wife Mary. And Gore Vidal has returned to his Rome apartment after a few weeks in the U.L I'is book, "Washington, D.C.," can now be found in its Italian edition in all the bookstores you'll be fascinated to hear. P. S. The reason King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie were not with Frederika at the Rubenstein concert is because they were off in Madrid paying a visit to Don Juan Carlos of Spain and his wife, Sophia, who is King Constantine's sister. You can't blamp th? 'V.iii for clinging together. It's such a small cUb.and it gdsbtr. illei all the time. Thanks to the dedicated workers and friends Gerald has met at the Crippled Children's Society and Rehabilitation Center, something inspiring and wonderful is happenung. He is a student in the preschool classes at the center, 300 Royal Palm Way, Palm Beach, daily from 10 to 11:15 a.m. He also undergoes regular therapy, and is provided transportation without charge for the daily routine by the American Red Cross. 4. The six-year-old little boy is one of a family of nine children in the Belle Glade area. Because of the difficult circumstance (he is paralyzed from the waist down because of the shooting) he is living in the County Home. Gerald's sweetness and personality, and hft dignified struggle to learn to care for himself has touched many hearts. Perhaps somewhere, and soon, more friends will want to sponsor this courageous little boy. POSITIVE WITH NEGATIVE - The resort fashion image gets a double take in this coat-dress costume knitted of polyester acrylic. The twin stripes reverse from black and white to white and black, from French navy and white to white and navy. A PENSIVE MOMENT - Gerald turns a bit reflective, as six-year olds sometimes do, as he washes his hands at the Crippled Childrens Society Rehabilitation Center, He is paralyzed from the waist down.
