Area By FRANK CAFONE Press Staff Writer Anyone who goes begging for Halloween treats from "Black Christmas" is going to be disappointed. This tepid, inconclusive suspense yarn comes to the screen with the low degree of flair and imagination usually Opinion reserved for TV film fantasies and drug store paperbacks. In an attempt to give an old story a new setting, the tale unfolds at Christmas time on a New England university compus. Oscar Winners Scoring Again LOS ANGELES (AP) -Double Oscar winners Al Kasha and Joel Hirschorn have been signed to write the music for "Pete's Dragon," the biggest musical project at Walt Disney Productions since "Mary Poppins."

It sounds like Mercedes McCambridge on the other end doing her "Exorcist" routine. NO ONE takes the calls seriously, until one of the women disappears. The police search everywhere except the attic of the house. Slipping in and out unseen, the caller lurks there, and at his leisure climbs down and picks off the women one-by-one. Occasional thrills are delivered as the killer stalks his prey. His shadow crawls along the wall as he sneaks up on his victims. . His brown eyes glare from behind doorways as he lies waiting to pounce. The chief suspect in this grisly affair is a high-strung composer of cacaphonic concertos, who has been dating one of the sorority sisters. Fonteyn, Nureyev Broadway-Bound NEW YORK (AP) - Dame Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev will appear on Broadway for 13 performances, from Nov. 18 to Nov. 29, 'it was announced by Hurok Concerts. The couple, whose last joint appearances here were with the British Royal Ballet in 1972, will dance in the Uris Theater. . The program, to be repeated at each performance, will . include two American premieres, a New York premiere and a revival of Frederick Ashton's "Marguerite and Armand," which Ashton choreographed for Dame Margot and Nureyev In 1963. "Floresta Amazonica," a Pas de deux created for Dame Margot by Ashton to a . (1823 - 1892) painted "Arctic Scene" (c. 1 870), to resemble a photograph. All hope for suspense and a surprise ending is based on having the audience believe the composer is the killer. BUT THIS theory is remote. The composer is played by Keir Dullea. We know the killer has brown eyes, but Dullea's eyes are blue we remember seeing them turn from blue to psychedelic orange in "2001: A space Odyssey." This stupid oversight maimes a story in need of all the help it can get. Alone at the rescue, is Marion Waldsman, a hip housekeeper who hides a - bottle in every room, but she is victimized far too early in the film The show might as well be over after the housekeeper is hoisted Into the attic with a block and tackle hooked through her throat. The other performers (including John Saxon, a detective, and Olivia Hussey, the heroine) simply walked song of Villa-Lobos, and Murray Louis's "Moments," created for Nureyev, will have their first American performances. Other dances on the program will be Leslie Edwards, principal dancer of the British Royal Ballet, Daniel Lommel, principal dancer of the Bejart Ballet, and artists of the Murray Louis Dance Company. Lommel and Nureyev will dance the first New York performances of Maurice Bejart's pas de deux to Mahler's "Songs of a Wayfarer." Dame Margot and Nureyev danced for two . weeks at Kennedy Center during the summer, but Edwards will be the only guest artist from that engagement also dancing with them in New York. By PAT HIPP Special to The Press LAWRENCEVILLE -After the current exhibition, "American Paintings: A Gathering from Three Centuries," closes at the Squibb ' Gallery on Oct. 31, 65 works will vanish from public view,, perhaps never to be seen again. The art was discovered in 48 Princeton area homes during a Bicentennia) Inventory undertaken by "the Historical Society of Princeton for the Smithsonian Institution's National Collection of Fine Arts. Over 600 paintings were uncovered in the Princeton area, some, as was a Rembrandt Peale, hanging unidentified in dark corners. The 600 paintings are the largest single source to date, according to Abigail Booth, coordinator of the Smithsonian's national survey. One hundred thousand paintings, she reports, have been inventoried throughout the United States. The current exhibition at the Squibb Gallery is the nation's first showing of art rediscovered through the Bicentennial Inventory, which has been in process since 1970. THE 63 PAINTINGS were selected for stylistic quality, historical interest and intrinsic appeal. The selection was made by Darrel Sewell, curator of American Art, Philadelphia Museum of 'Black Christmas9 through this dull film and picked up their checks. THEY'RE HARDLY to blanae. The script offers no inspiration and is riddled with cliches and predictable events. It also relies too heavily on foul humor for comedic relief. The only New Laws Give By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer (Second of a Series) Women are getting additional protection in the world of business, thanks to a new federal law that prohibits discrimination against credit applicants on the basis of sex or marital status. The law, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, is one of two credit statutes taking effect Oct. 28. The Federal Reserve Board is working out final details of regulations to implement the law, and some provisions will not take effect for a year, but the basic rules already have .been set forth. Millions of credit cards are held by women. W.R. Sim' mons and Associates Inc., a market research firm, estimates that about 48 per cent of the 35.2 million Master Charge cardholders are women. Many cards are held by women in their husband's names. If a woman tries to get a credit card or loan in her own name, she may find it difficult because she has no credit rating of her own. UNDER THE NEW law, accounts used by both a husband and wife will have to be listed in both their names. Creditors also will have to include both names in reports to rating services. Previously, some creditors provided information in the husband's name only, even if the wife used the account and had her own charge card. Art; Norman Hirschl, president of Hirschl and Adler Galleries, New York; and Ellwood Parry, assistant professor of Art History, Columbia University. A 64-page catalogue containing all 65 paintings has an introduction by Parry. A comprehensive range of our most well-known American artists, who painted in the years from 1762 to 1914, is represented. The collection includes 24 portraits, 25 landscapes, four still lifes, eight genre paintings and four animal paintings. Only five or six have ever been shown publicly before. One artist, Thomas Cole, is represented by more than one work. Two small studies for later landscapes are shown. One, "Study for the Hunter's Return," 1845, is of particular value, because the final work has not been found. THE 57 KNOWN artists (seven are anonymous since many early primitive painters did not sign their work) in the show include Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Erwin Church, John Singleton Copley, Childe Hassam, Edward Hicks, Winslow Homer, George Inness, Ernest Lawson, Peale, Maurice Prendergast, Albert Pinkham Ryder, Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Sully and John Trumball. There is even a Maxfield Parrish. . Of interest is the "BVattle of Princeton" by John R. dirty lines that are funny are the ones that haven't been heard before of which there are few. Bob Clark, director of uncertain background, is responsible for this ho-hum horror. If it's his first effort, he's off to a bad start. All credit application forms must include a section explaining the new law bans discrimination because of sex. Here are some questions and answers about other provisions involving women and credit: Q. Who is covered by the law? A. The act covers all those who regularly extend credit to individuals, including banks, finance companies, department stores, credit card issuers and government agencies such as the Small Business Administration. (Men, as well as women, are covered by the law, but men have not had the same problems as women in getting credit in the past.) Q. Can creditors ask about a woman's marital status if she is applying for her own account? A. Yes. The law does not bar creditors from asking about marital status so long as such a question does not conflict with state laws. If an application form does include a section for marital status, only the terms married, unmarried and separated may be used. Q. Can creditors ask a woman about her husband's ernings? A. That depends on who will be using the account and will be responsible for debts. If only one person will use the account, the creditor may not ask anything more than the spouse's name and address. If husband and wife will use the account jointly, the creditor can ask for more complete information about wmmmmmmwmsmMm- m m mmmmmi mmmimm i?2bss m. mmMmmmm mmmmmmmsmmimi;m:m mmmhmm wisaiss: wmmmm mamsmMMmmMm r- llillilllllilllllll - pi : "Filling the Pond" (no Chapin. This is a copy of Curtin of his "Battle of Monmouth", except that he eliminated Molly Pitcher and her cannon from the background and added General Mercer, mortally wounded. "Ocean County Democrat" by John F. Peto, is a "bulletin board" painting of Charles Haslett, editor of the Ocean County Democrat along with the newspaper; painted by the artist when he moved to Island Heights from Philadelphia. It is fascinating to walk around the gallery and trace the development of American art even though 65 paintings can hardly tell the whole story-from 1762 to 1914. Portraits, of course, "vere most popular in colonial painting, and it is the flat, non-dimensional portraits that we think of as "primitive." And here we trace the evolution of the portrait satisfactorily from Joseph Blackburn's "Susannah Grey Richards", 1762, through 1885 when William Merritt Chase painted his sensitive study of William T. Trego. Again, we see, however, sparsely, landscapes changing before us, from Cole, and Hicks, whose "Peaceable Kingdom" we all know, to Prendergast and Hassam, much influenced by the post-impressionists. Among them is "Hunt's House" (Hilltop farm), anonymous, in Hopewell. The house still1 stands and is on sale for a, million dollars. "AMERICAN PAINTINGS" is a charming show. It won't take you long to see Women Better both of them. Q. DO CREDITORS have to count income from alimony or child support when determining whether an applicant qualifies? A. Yes. These payments must be considered like any other Income, provided they are made under a written agreement or court order and provided it seems likely they will continue. In order to determine whether the income is likely to continue, the creditor can take into account things such as date, painter unknown) is A CDrrnv Da nv Dneco 1 11 Tues., Oct. 21, 1975 J- "Christmas in the 1 890's" by Lauren Ford shows the fireside while the children have a wonderful time with it.

They recognize each other across the centuries. whether past payments have been made regularly. . Q. Can a married woman get an account under her maiden name if she wants to? A. Yes. Creditors must give credit under any legal name you chose, providing it is recognized by state law. Q. What about courtesy titles such as "Miss," "Ms." or "Mrs."? A. Any application form that requests a consumer to designate a title, must also note that the selection of a remarkably precise watercolor documentary.

This is designed to end the practice of some lenders who refused to count a wife's income when considering eligibility for something such as a mortgage. The lenders argued that the wife might quit work and therefore her income could not be relied on. Q. What happens if a cou-4 pie gets divorced? Does the wife lose her account? A. Not unless there is some evidence to indicate she won't be able to pay the bills. Creditors cannot close accounts or require people to reapply for new accounts just because there is a change in their marital status. Q. Do you have a right to an explanation if you are denied credit? A. Yes. Any person who is denied credit turned down for a card or refused a loan can demand a written statement giving the reasons. Q. What happens if you believe you are being discriminated against because of sex or marital status? A. You must take the case to the creditor first and explain your belief. If you are not satisfied, you can file a complaint with state or local authorities or with the Federal Reserve Board, Office of Saver and Consumer, Washington, D.C. 20551.
