CRAIG EVANS "cool" has never been tested to the extent indicated in this photo of him playing piano in the midst of the Truckee River. However, performing in the Silver Dollar Room of Harolds Club, where the atmosphere is ultra-casual, requires an adaptable entertainer. Off - limits to primadonnas, the stage of the Silver Dollar Room is occupied from dusk to dawn by Evans, comedian Paul Gilbert, Jo Ann Jordan andor the Winners and Tony Austin & Co. KATHY JUSTICE IN 'FIVE CARD' Katherine Justice has been signed by producer Hal Wal-lis for the second female lead-in Paramount Pictures' "Five Card Stud." The suspense Western, which stars Dean Martin and Robert Mitchum and costars Inger Stevens, is before the Technicolor cameras in Durango, Mexico, under the direction of Henry Hathaway. Miss Justice, a former Miss Ohio, will play the daughter of a Colorado rancher in "Five Card Stud." The young actress, a graduate of Carnegie Tech, appeared last year on the popular television series "Big Valley" and recently co-starred with Mitchum in "The Way West." "Five Card Stud" will be filmed from a screenplay by Marguerite Roberts, based on a novel by Ray Gaulden. ierry Lewis Those who find it hard to imagine Jerry Lewis as the father of six sons, now are also called upon to think of the zany-acting comedian as a grandfather. If it's any help to those who find this difficult, Jerry acts like every other grandfather who ever lived. Younger looking than most, maybe, but typical. This seemed obvious from the moment he drove into the parking lot of the National Broadcasting Company's Bur-bank studios the day after son Gary's wife Jinky gave birth to a girl, Sara Jane. Jerry checked in with a smile full of teeth and a fist full of pictures. Bob Finkel, executive producer of Jerry's show, met the comedian in the lot. Bob gave Jerry his hand and Jerry gave Bob the pictures. After a few moments of THEATER IN OLD INN A Turkish inn built 130 years ago has been converted Into a 450-seat theater for stage productions. The management claims it is the first playhouse opened here for legit since the Roman era. BBr 'gyBi J Prov highly animated conversation, they walked arms-around-shoulders toward Jerry's rehearsal hall. But on the way, Jerry bolted to another rehearsal hall, the one used by choreographer Nick Castle and the show's dancers. Jerry stuck his head in the door and the air filled fast with congratulations and questions. The answers were, "They're both fine, Gary's tired and I'm exhausted." Jerry explained, "Gary and I had a 49-hour wait. We were playing cards in the fathers' room and our heads were drooping. I didn't even see the nurse walk up. First I knew, she was saying, 'It's a baby girl, Mr. Lewis to me. Gary jumped up and said, 'Hey, what about me? I had something to do with this, you know.' " A couple of minutes later, Jerry said, he tried to phone the baby's other grandfather in Manila, where he's a harbor master. "I kept getting a break in the connection. I'd say, 'You have a new baby . . and then, snap. I tried again and again. Same thing. At the other end it must have been torture. Finally someone sug es 1 ypica gested the solution. I said, 'Girl, girl, girl' 12 times and at least one of them got through, I'm sure." Asked what the little one looks like, Jerry offered the snapshots, apologizing for their slightly blurred quality. "Here," he said, "pictures from nervous hands." Jerry beamed. "She's so alert and so graceful the way she holds out her little finger. I've seen six sets of lit 'h: . S Grandf tle hands all grubby ones so believe me, these are graceful." Jerry looked at his watch. "Gee, just think she's almost 24 hours old." Finkel looked at his own watch. "Gee, just think, you're late for rehearsal." Jerry bounded away like a leaping gazelle. Jerry, in fact, may have set a new world record in a rather specialized category cither leaping from a standing start for grandfathers in show business.
