THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 1977 v News Efiateei?s No influence with Jimmy WASHINGTON - Jimmy Carter's sister said she has "zero" influence with her brother, but that if he asked for her advice, she'd have a lot to give him. "But he's never asked for my advice and I doubt if he ever will," said Ruth Carter Stapleton after a discussion session on "The Religious Experience" at the Kennedy Center yesterday. "I have opinions about everything he does," Mrs. Stapleton said. She recalled that while campaigning for her older brother in 1976 she had "slight differences" with Carter on certain subjects. "But I avoided those subjects like the plague. I would not cause any controversy or take issue with what he said. My purpose was to get him elected." The only way her work with the inner healing ministry had been affected by the election of her brother to the presidency, Mrs. Stapleton said, was that "now, a lot more people come to hear me talk." AP Princess visits WASHINGTON - Princess Anne arrived in the United States yesterday for a tribute to a royal namesake and ancestor, Queen Anne. The 26-year-old only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II arrived on a British Airways VCIO with her husband, army Capt. Mark Phillips. She was met at Dulles International airport, in suburban Viginia, by British Ambassador Sir Peter Ramsbotham. She will spend five days here and in Maryland. AP Groucho teases HOLLYWOOD - Groucho Man, recovering from his second hip surgery this year, is well enough to be teasing the nurses, a spokesman for the 86-year-old comedian said yesterday. Marx underwent surgery Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The surgery was a follow-up on the operation Groucho underwent last March following a fall at his home, according to Nat Perrin who was appointed Groucho's temporary conservator earlier this year. UPI Grace graces medal ROME A profile of Princess Grace of Monaco is depicted on the most recent Ceres Medal, a medallion released by the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization. The princess was chosen in recognition of her dedication to Red Cross activities and for extensive work on behalf of young people. First issued in 1971, the medal has previously portrayed Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Coretta Scott King, widow of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.-AP Cleric of the year NEW YORK - The Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, president of Notre Dame University, has been awarded the Society for the Family of Man medallion as the 1977 "Clergyman of the Year," it was announced yesterday. The award was announced jointly by society President Raymond P. Shafer and the Rev. Dr. Kenneth L. Folkes, president of the Council of Churches of the City of New York. "This is the first time a Roman Catholic clergyman has won a Family of Man Medallion and all of us with the Council of Churches of the City of New York are pleased with the growing ecumenical spirit prevailing among the churches in the city," Folkes said. - UPI Radio actor dies LOS ANGELES - Alan Reed, one-time radio straight man most recently known as the voice of Fred Flintstone on the animated television series "The Flintstones," is dead at age 69. A family spokesman said yesterday that Reed died at St. Vincent Medical Center on Tuesday after a long illness. He had been a straight man and foil for nearly all the famous early radio comedians, including Eddie Cantor, Jack Pearl, Bob Hope, Bert Lahr, Jimmy Durante, Al Jolson, Ed Wynn and Fanny Brice. Reed was the original Daddy to Miss Brice's Baby Snooks and the poet Falstaff Openshaw on the Fred Allen show.

AP The ever changing restaurant scene Although I don't know how to interpret it, the rash of new restaurants breaking out these days is probably a sign of the times. The restuarant mosaic is constantly changing anyway, as neighborhoods alter in character, and as traffic patterns are reshuffled by street and highway construction. Some restaurants have changed owners and names half a dozen times over the years; there always seems to be someone in the wings, eager to try his hand. It's virtually impossible to keep track of all the new activity, but this is typical of what is happening: THE ALEXANDER STREET-Park Avenue area has blossomed out recently. Hugo's, on Alexander between East Avenue and Gardner Park, is being operated by Louis Glessman. It is in the building formerly occupied by the Montmartre. Glessman bought the business from Ernie Passero and his father, Anthony, and it has been "going very well." Matter of fact, he's just expanded the operation to seven days a week. Mike Rizzo is the chef, Bradley Westcott in charge of the dining room, and Barbara Morrison the wine steward; there aren't many women wine stewards. I guess that should be "stewardess." Glessman is adding a 30-seat private dining room on the lower level. The decor of Hugo's is Art Deco of the 1925-35 era, and soft big band music plays in the background. A new discotheque-type place, Lloyd's Ltd., is scheduled to open next door to Hugo's, and across the street at the Rio Bamba, owner Pete Van Cola has created a new parking lot by purchasing the old rooming house that was next door, and razing it. Mike Sarli, the Rio Bamba maitre d points out that "it's the only place in town with valet parking." Van Cola has operated the Rio for the last 18 years and says that "business is great." He has on the drawing board plans for an addition to the south side of the building. Jerry Vor-rasi is chef. Farther south on Alexander Street, in part of the building that houses the Normandy apartments is the new Born to be a Nazi J. Ross Baughman of the Lorain Journal staff infiltrated the American Nazi movement in October 1976. Over the next seven months, he had an inside look at its people and plans. This is one of a countmuing series of stories copyrighted by The Lorain Journal. By J. ROSS BAUGHMAN LORAIN, Ohio (AP) - Frank Collin of Chicago, who heads the largest city chapter in the American Nazi movement and recently won a broader power base within the movement, would like to be president. He also believes he was born to be a Nazi and says the U.S. movement is in better shape than ever. A veteran of the original American Nazi party in the 1960s, Collin was elected national coordinator of the newly formed National Socialist Congress during a Cleveland meeting last February. There he united 19 Nazi chapter from the United States, Canada and Western Europe and since has recruited working-class people from seven additional cities. I estimate there are 1,300 dues-paying uniformed members nationally. The party's newsletter, generally sent only to such members, has a circulation of 1,500. Chicago's National Socialist Party of America (NSPA), under Collin's direct control, is regarded as the biggest and best-organized Nazi group in the congress, able to put 75 uniformed storm troopers on the street in an emergency. Add to that a fluctuating group of at least 50 Youth Corps members in "White Power" T-shirts. "WE ARE REALLY PROUD of our kids," Collin told me. "We train them to be ruthless little barbarians. We even give them a chance at a shotgun, even when it bruises their little shoulders. It's good for them toughens them up." I asked Collin, whose rhetoric is much more guarded, if he thought Chicago saw the Nazis as interested in overthrowing the U.S. government. "They're not sure how far we plan to go, and unfortunately that's our fault for not being more consistent "dveFlRe ' long " haul," he said.

In the same building is the International Supper Club owned by Phil Cubiotti and managed by his father, Don. It has been in operation nearly two years, featuring French Cuisine with a weekend menu of 28 entrees and "specials" during the week. The club's facilities are in what was, years ago, the Normandy's spacious dining room. Not far away, at 54 Park Ave., is a new one, Iggy's Study, operated by Nelson Bardo and John Grace. This restaurant was created from a rooming house; the interior has been remodeled with oak woodwork and a balcony arrangement. It has a continental atmosphere, with classical music at the lunches and Sunday brunches which are a highlight of the operation. The setting is a bit reminiscent of San Francisco andor Toronto. This is the first venture into the restaurant business for partners Bardo and Grace. "We're doing very well." Farther out Park Avenue, in what used to be Ozzie's Pizza shop just east of Berkeley Street, is'Frank Trapani's new Big Apple Cafe, a small place specializing in food "a little Italian, a little American, a little Jewish, a little French." It serves wine and beer. Trapani owns the women's clothing store, La Deja Vu, next door, in partnership with Bob Manzella who is handling their three dress shops while Trapani runs the restaurant. Trapani, 27, and his brother, Sam, 19, did the remodeling; Frank did the decorating; his mother bakes most of the pies. THERE ARE OTHER NEW entries into the restaurant sweepstakes.

A spectacular spectacle By BERNARD DREW Gannett JVews Service "A Bridge Too Far," the Joseph E. Levine $25 million epic about a disastrous World War II mission, was directed by Richard Attenborough from a screenplay by William Goldman. It stars (if for only ten minutes apiece) such stars as Robert Redford, Laurence Olivier, Sean Connery, Dirk Bogarde, Gene Hackman, Liv Ull-mann, Ryan O'Neal, James Caan, Elliott Gould and Michael Caine. Expensive, expensive, expensive. You almost feel that if the money spent on the movie had been poured into Operation Market Garden the futile airborne assault into Holland in 1944 the operation might have been successful. By MARY RITA KURYCKI D&C Staff Writer Lillian Silver insists she has "no patience or vision with puzzles." Perhaps, she suggests, that's why she is "in awe of them." Puzzling over puzzles at the request of Xerox Corp., Mrs. Silver, two years ago dreamed up a show for the company's local exhibit hall. The show, "By Design," featured "art with scientific elements." Now she's re-dreamed that show, expanded it, and is providing the Ontario Science Center with "some art to mix with their science." Her show, "Deceptions In art, Nature and Play," opens at the Ontario Science Center, Toronto, -tomuni). It wiU TunougS'Ttiie" summer there and close October 10. In Review Not that it's a bad movie. Running just under three hours, it's far too long but it's not bad. Sometimes it's quite good and when director Attenborough, who can direct a war better than anybody else I can think ot, shows us dozens and dozens of planes leaving England or a sky full of parachutists descending into Holland, the picture is enthralling. But it's a highly complex story and the superstars are, on one hand, a distraction it s a little disconcerting to see Robert Redford enter the film nearly two hours into it, act cocky and angry for about ten minutes and then vanish; but they do Large figure of Napoleon stands amid trees in Tomb of Napoleon.' deceptions in art "PUZZLES HAVE SUCH a logic in construction, such tightness in form, they create almost an abstract design," Mrs. Silver said. Her "looking for the common elements in creation of puzzles and in art" led her into other areas. The result a show which features artists whose works are built on deceptions. "By Design," the local Xerox-sponsored show of 1975, received international attention. Scientific America featured it in a cover article. That article sparked the interest of administrators at the Ontario Science Center.

In the confusion of the many battles, we would require a map and searchlight to get our bearings were it not for the friendly faces of Caan, Connery, Gould, et al, serving as human guideposts. The movie is based on actual facts. Field Marshall Montgomery devised a plan in September 1944, three months after D Day, in which 35,000 British and U.S. paratroopers would be dropped into Eastern Holland and secure the six major bridges leading into Germany. Simultaneously, a massive British ground force was to move in from Belgium and join the paratroopers at Arnhem. Turn to Page 4C was talking about," she said. No one before had shown as much interest in locating and exhibiting deceptive art, she said. ANAMORPHIC WORKS OF ART must be viewed with a reflective cone or cylinder to translate abstract swirls of color into conventional images. Locating one such piece of art commonly led to another, she said. "There's a network of people around the world interested in deceptive art. Cornelius Roosevelt, grandson of Theodore, is one. And he knew of someone else, and so on. Nothing else ties these people together but this interest," Mrs. Silver said.
