fcliiiyihiyiyir A24 FRIDAY, JULY 26, 1996 LOS ANGELES TIMES THRIFTS: Conversion to Bank Status Continued from Al trast, pay 23 cents for every $100 in deposits. This means Great Western pays $70 million a year for the same deposit insurance that costs Bank of America $2,000. Premiums for the S&L insurance fund are far higher because the fund must still foot the bill for continuing costs of the massive thrift bailouts of the 1980s. The ultimate danger of an exodus of S&Ls is a crippling of the insurance fund, and the inability of the remaining S&Ls to pay interest on special bonds issued for the S&L cleanup. This could lead to another costly taxpayer bailout. As more thrift deposits become bank deposits, there will be a shrinking of the thrift industry's ability to pay the $1.5-billion-a-year federal insurance bill, which includes $793 million in interest payments for those special bonds. The exposure for taxpayers could be more than $27 billion the interest costs of the special bonds for the next 30 years as well as the expense of any individual thrift failures. Such a prospect is expected to prompt Congress to force banks to foot part of the bill for the S&L cleanup. The House Banking Committee voted Thursday for a complex plan that would provide an infusion of cash from the thrift industry for the ailing S&L fund, require banks to make contributions and eventually create a single insurance fund for all banks and thrifts. But it is uncertain whether House Republican leaders can work out a version with their Senate counterparts that would pass Congress before the legislators adjourn for the election campaigns. Meanwhile, the approval of bank charters for a huge S&L such as Great Western, with Irwindale-based Home Savings of America and Los Angeles-based California Federal Bank waiting in the wings, dramatically illustrates how the leakage of thrift deposits could become a flood. Cal Fed, the nation's lOth-larg-est thrift, has an application pending with the office of the comptroller of the currency to open a national bank in Los Angeles. Home Savings, the largest thrift, has applied for a state charter in Washington. The comptroller regulates national banks. "We've been trying to become more bank-like for a long time," James F. Montgomery, chairman of Great Western, said Thursday. "It's too bad we have to do it this way, rather than the right way" through a merger of the insurance funds and the charters for the separate financial institutions, he said. "Eventually, there will be a single banking industry in this country." The S&Ls, which traditionally specialize in home mortgage lending, also have charter authority to sell insurance, invest in real estate and operate in other business ventures. Banks have powers concentrated in consumer and business lending. "We hope this will be a wake-up call to Congress," said Montgomery, who is also chairman of America's Community Bankers, an S&L trade group. Nearly $100 billion of the S&L industry's $700 billion in deposits is held by institutions that have applied to the comptroller for permission to operate banks. Only customers, rather than S&L management, can shift deposits to the new banks. Thus, S&Ls seeking to move money are ex pected to mount special marketing campaigns, offering certificates of deposit and other accounts at above-market interest rates. For current customers whose CDs mature, the S&Ls would offer to pay a higher rate at the bank for renewing the CD than would be available at the thrift The cus-' tomer would merely have to sign a paper, opening a new account at the bank. Great Western still needs approval from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and the Federal Reserve Board for permission to run banks with full commercial and consumer lending powers, and to operate a holding company for the bank units. Its banks would not require new buildings but would operate in existing Great Western offices. The comptroller approved the first application to switch earlier this month, giving TCF Financial Corp. of Minneapolis the right to open national banks in Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. This signaled the "bursting of the dam" as S&Ls rush to move their money away from exposure to the high-cost insurance fund, said Paul A. Schosberg, president of America's Community Bankers. "Congress has just not been able to keep up with reality," said Edward C. Furash, managing partner of Furash & Co., a financial consulting firm in Washington. "The reality is the thrifts have to make major choices in the next two or three years about shifting to become major commercial banks, or contracting themselves," he said.

Forest Lawn Mortuary By MYRNA OLIVER TIMES STAFF WRITER Jean Muir, one of the first actresses blacklisted as a purported Communist sympathizer during the zealous McCarthy era, has died. She was 85. Muir died Tuesday in a nursing home in Mesa, Ariz. The blond actress was scheduled to play the mother in "The Aldrich Family" television series in 1950 when she suddenly was fired by NBC and General Foods Corp., the program's sponsor. The dismissal occurred after her name, along with those of about 150 other show business people, was listed in a 1950 booklet called "Red Channels: the Report on Communist Influence in Radio and Television." Muir vehemently denied the accusation, telling news media: "I am not a Communist, have never been one and believe that the Communists represent a vicious and destructive force, and I am opposed to them." But General Foods refused to relent, saying she had become too controversial to appear on their family show. ' The accusations of Communism in her case were apparently prompted by printed reports that she had been a member of the - ' ";?sf 1 "V " ' Y Los Angeles Times Jean Muir in 1979 Congress of American Women, which was listed by the U.S. Department of Justice as subversive. She said she had belonged to the group for six months, but resigned "because I suspected it." The blacklisting took an emotional toll on Muir, and prompted a lengthy bout with alcoholism. She did not work on the small screen again until 1958 when she had a role in an episode of "Matinee Theater." Muir's ordeal was described in detail in the 1952 book by Merle Miller "The Judges and Judged." Born Jean Muir Fullarton in New York City, the actress began her career on the Broadway stage in 1930. She moved to Hollywood under contract to Warner Bros, in - 1933 after a triumph in the play "Saint Wench." Muir made a spate of mostly mediocre motion pictures in the 1930s, including "The World Changes," "The White Cocka too," "Oil for the Lamps of China," "A Midsummer Night's Dream," and "The Outcasts of Poker Flat." She also created and operated Jean Muir's Theater Workshop on Santa Monica Boulevard. Muir worked briefly in London and then returned to New York where she married attorney Henry Jaffee in 1940. She continued her career on the stage and in the new medium of television. Muir taught drama at Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., from 1966 to 1976 and lectured at other colleges as well. She is survived by two sons, Michael of Los Angeles and David of Belmont, Calif., and a daughter, Margaret Bauer of Mesa. CASE.

Annette Neptune Soclety-Burbank Frances Eisenberg; Teacher Challenged Firing By MYRNA OLIVER TIMES STAFF WRITER Frances R. Eisenberg, who was dismissed as a Los Angeles high school teacher in 1953 for refusing to answer questions about membership in the Communist Party, has died. She was 91. Eisenberg, who tutored privately after she was fired, died Tuesday in her West Hollywood home of complications after surgery. Even though Eisenberg and many other teachers in the Los Angeles Unified School District signed loyalty oaths, they were summarily dismissed for refusing to answer questions about Communism posed by the Board of Education. The firings then were legal under the state's Dilworth Act. But Eisenberg and five others were vindicated in 1981 by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge who said they should have been reinstated in 1968 the year the Board of Education repealed its regulation for implementing the Dilworth Act. The judge also ordered the school district to give the teachers some back pay. Eisenberg had been a distinguished teacher of English and journalism at Canoga Park High tt.aaV.lii U-l-'- jfV-Al Loa Angeles Times Frances R. Eisenberg in 1981 School for 16 years and at Fairfax High School for seven. She said getting fired came as "a terrible blow." "Our position was that we were loyal," Eisenberg told The Times in 1981. "We had signed loyalty oaths to support the United States and the state of California in good faith. We felt the investigation was an invasion of privacy and a violation of our constitutional rights. A board committee had cleared the teachers of any wrongdoing, she said. "But the board was not satis fied," she added, "because this was the era when they wanted to drum up this hysteria. So the board called another committee hearing. Then we were dismissed. Eisenberg's story was chronicled in a book by Martha Kransdorf titled "A Matter of Loyalty: the Los Angeles Board of Education vs. Frances Eisenberg. Eisenberg had spent the last 30 years living in the West Hollywood area and was a key organizer of senior citizens in the 1984 cam paign for cityhood. She was active in the Coalition for Economic Sur vival and, from its inception 1987, in the West Hollywood Sen ior Advisory Council. The city last year presented her with an Angels Amidst award for her community work. In 1995, Eisenberg raised $2,100 for public radio station KPFK-FM (90.7) by requesting donations as gifts in celebration of her 90th birthday. She said that, because of her impaired vision, she relied heavily on public radio as a source of information. GILDEN, Jack, of San Marcos, California, died Monday at this home.

Lenox died of an apparent heart attack in his Van Nuys home on Tuesday, his 50th birthday. In 1989, Lenox and producer Simon R. Lewis set up "Making the Short Fiction Film" for UCLA Extension. The, program helped new filmmakers produce, write and direct films to be screened at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts ,and Sciences' Samuel Goldwyn Theater. While traditional film schools like those at U3C and UCLA approach filmmaking as art, Lenox and Lewis focused on fl'mmaking as a commercial business making films to sell. "I have found (this program one of the most rewarding adventures of my life," Lenox told The Times in 1992. "There's nothing like seeing a lightbulb going on in someone's eyes. There's nothing like seeing something with potential live up to its potential." A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Lenox was a musical prodigy who performed before the Texas State Music Teachers Assn. when he was 6. He rejected a music scholarship to study economics at Southern Methodist University. He also earned a bachelor's of fine arts degree in cinematography there. Lenox moved to Los Angeles in 1970 to enter the Directors Guild of America's apprenticeship program. He soon became assistant director on popular television comedies Including "The Odd Couple," "Love American Style' and "Happy Days." Within five years, Lenox made his solo directing debut on "Laverne and Shirley." Lenox went on to produce "The Brady Bunch" reunion shows, in cluding "The Brady Girls Get Mar ried," and the limited series "The Brady Brides." He was nominated for an Emmy for his work as executive producer of the NBC miniseries "Long Hot Summer," starring Don Johnson, Jason Robards and Ava Gardner. On the big screen, Lenox was best known as executive producer of "Splash" in 1983, starring Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah and John Candy. Lenox's most recent production was "Lily Dale" for Showtime.
