Want to a»k a farnaui |Mwn a quattlon? Sand tha quMUon on · postcard to "Art." Family WMW, 641 Y. 10022. Wa'll pay $5 for publliliad quattkm. Sony, wa can't amwer othan. La»ln«lon Ava., Na» York. N.Y. fORSEN.EDWASDJ.GVKNEY of Florida What does England nave against our orange juice? A coujm of mine tcfco ctnfed London last summer tetts me there t* a heavy tax on frozen orange juice there, but not on "essential foods"-like fresh oranges.-S. G., Lakeland, Fla. · The thing is a clear and simple inequity. It means, if you please, that caviar from Russia is not taxed in the United Kingdom, but orange juice from Florida is. It is ridiculous to tax orange juice,-but to exempt fresh oranges, milk, tea and other foods. Orange juice is not a luxury. It is certainly more beneficial to the health of the people of England than Scotch whiskey is to the people of the United States. FOR SHJJVET FOJTIEK You directed Harry Belafonte in a role that won him critical acclaim in your movie, "Bock and the Preacher." Any special trick to getting that kind of performance out of a friend of youra?-H. P. F., Oklahoma City, Okla. · No special trick. Harry has always been a strong character actor, but he just couldn't overcome his matinee-idol appearance. We fixed that by changing his whole appearance with blackened teeth and ragged clothes. FOR CONNIE STEVENS Is there any chance that you and Eddie Fisher will get back together again?--Mrs. A. Smith, Fort Myers, Fla. · No. We are good friends, and I still see Eddie. But as for marriage--not again. FOR HUGH MARLOWE, actor You've been married twice--once young and once late in life- How would you compare the two experiences?-!. Kendall, Thousand Oaks, CaKf. ^ A second time around" marriage has many benefits--at least for a man. When my two sons by my first wife were growing up, 1 was busy buikhng my career and was away for long periods of time. One day, I sadly discovered my two small boys were six feet taB. By now I've built my bridges and have time to spend with my wife, time to help and watch my smallest son grow into a man. FOB RICARDO MONTALBAN, actor Why do you do so many guest appearances on TV?--D. Borak, Cincinnati, Ohio · Getting acting jobs is becoming more difficult and the pay is going downhill fast As production costs go up, the only place producers can cut down expenses is with actors. Two years ago I got 910,000 for an one-hour show as a guest star. Today the top price is $1,750 to $2,000.Before,, if you did six or seven guest appearances a year, you could maintain star status. Not anymore.' FOR LUCILLE BALL Do you speak any foreign languag«?-O. F- East StLouis, · Unfortunately, no. I didn't even learn Spanish although I was married to a Cuban for so many years. Desi not only didn't teach me, he wouldn't even teach our kids. He said he was too busy learning English! FOR LARRY CSONKA, football star of the Miami Dolphins Iff been reported that you criticized President Nixon because of his practice of phoning winning football coaches. Truer-David Moore, Durham, N.C. · It's true. That sort of thing doesn't help anybody. And it brainwashes people into believing that football is so much more important than it is. This thinking is reflected in the action of some football coaches who take the game too seriously and in so doing spoil it for the youngsters they coach. FOR ROBERT, TVs "Banyan" Vfktn did yeu«et alt-tike -rfntaffi ran Hurl tn jTmr Wasn't it quite expensive to wreck mem, as often happened in your chase scenes?--Mrs. Charles Hardm, Biloxi, Miss. · Cars for "Banyan" were supplied by the Movie World Company, one of several firms that rent can to TV and movies. Yes, it was very expensive to wreck them, but damage done in "Banyon" filming was actually minor. FOR ROMANABANVELOS, Treasurer of the United States Why isn't our currency printed in different colon like it is in other countries?-Mrs. A. C. Hen, New London, N.H. · We've received a number of suggestions both for and against a change in the color. The principal argument in favor of such a change is that it would enable people to distinguish drTominationi more easily. But changing the color of different denominations presents several problems, among them the possibility that it might be easier to counterfeit colored currency--plus, of course, the increased costs FOR SEN. GAXLORD NELSON (Wit.}, eoamuor of a m requiring amUructim standard* for scAaoi hue* There's been a lot of shouting afl year about school busing to bring about racial balance. Wbrt I want to know is, wbrfs the Government doing to make the buses safer?-T. · It's taken six yean for the Department of Transportation to reach the point of preparing a proposal for more protective seat standards for school bases. That standard still has not been fuDy implemented. The fact that the Department has only one individual in charge of pupil-transportation safety gives some measure of the priority afforded school-bus safety. The potential for tragedy is great Dac*mbr31, 1972 DONALD ML HUrKMO, V J, Advertising Director Aaaoc. AdvartMno; Mar.: Hakscl J.
