EARL WILSON SOFTSELL SAM ft*. f«m. TU«. HI u. wf INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM)_B-5 Non-Catholic Cardinals Elect Pope Each Night By EARL WILSON NEW YORK -- One of the newer sights of marvelous Times Square is nine red-robed "Cardinals" and nine other appropriately robed clerics striding erectly and solemnly along W. 46th St. each night around 9 o'clock as though going to elect a Pope. They're actors, coming from a dressing room in Hie back, tn enter the front of the Helen Hayes Theater whore they will indeed choose a Pope in "Hadrian VII." "Bless me, father!" a drunk said one night to "Cardinal" Richard Nicholls. Kids cross themselves. Their 12-foot long trains pet in their way as they form a procession up the aisles to the stage. "Papal C h am be r 1 i n" Jack Hallow's feet got caught in his robe once. He had to rip it. A woman touched "Cardinal" Theodore Tenley's robe. "Is it real silk?" she whispered. "It's good goods," he assured her. "Cardinal" Tom Gorman, a Methodist from Ohio Wesleyan, Louis Zorich, Truman Gaige, William A. Bush, Robert Hewitt, Arthur Morrow and Gillie Fenwick never waver in their solemnity as they're stared at by people going to Dinty Moore's bar or to the Mayfair burlesque. It just happens, none of the "Cardinals" is a Catholic. A couple are Jewish and wear mazuzahs under their robes. That's New York! Art Linklelter's off to Switzerland skiing. "David Niven and I are the leading Hollywood ski nuts now," he says. This is his first year in the International Ski Set, and he'll be working hard at skiing for three weeks. "In the winter now," he says, "I do a minimum of work and a maximum of .skiing."

Lewis and said, "Do you remember me?" Joe didn't. "I'm the fellow who gave you a horse that won and paid $65." Joe replied, "I remember the horse hut I don't remember you." THE MIDNIGHT F.ARI.... Teddy Kennedy was striding along Park Avr. in ihe 70s the other night in the sleet without an overcoat -- and if there was any security around, our private observer couldn't spot it.

WISH I'D SAID THAT: Lou Rrecker discovered the most boring character: "He doesn't listen even when he's talking." REMEMBERED QUOTE: "Even a professor soon discovers how little he knows when a child begins asking questions." EARL'S PEARLS: Chris Smith tells us his w i f e has exactly the same measurements she had when they were first married: "But. they're i n d i f f e r e n t places."
