The New York Post on Wednesday quoted an unidentified Hollywood insider as saying that Travolta will make an estimated $15 million as TDAtrru TA the womanizing presi- TRAVOLTA dent i a l candidate. Tra- volta signed after Tom Hanks pulled out, the Post said. The governor's bisexual wife may be played by Emma Thompson, the Post said. The author of the political novel was listed only as "Anonymous," creating a literary mystery solved when The Washington Post unmasked Newsweek columnist Joe Klein as the writer in July. Travolta shot to stardom playing dimwitted Vinnie Barbarino on TV's "Welcome Back Kotter." He was a disco hunk in "Saturday Night Fever" and a coke-snorting hit man in "Pulp Fiction." Burns has lock on future STURBRIDGE, Mass. — Ken Burns, archaeologist of the past, has a lock on the future. The historian is finishing up a two-part film on Thomas Jefferson, the first installment of a series on six famous Americans. The series will run on PBS until 2000. His next series, about jazz, will air that year. "I stand before you today a man who knows what he's going to be doing every. day between now and the end of the millennium," the creator of two acclaimed PBS series on baseball and the Civil War said Tuesday upon receiving a history award from Old Sturbridge Village. Beach boy in hot water CONCORD, N.H. — No day at the beach for Brian Wilson: New Hampshire's high court cleared the way for the former Beach Boy to be sued for libel. The Supreme Court on Wednesday unanimously affirmed a lower court ruling allowing Beach Boy Al Jardine and Brother Records Inc. to sue Wilson for his 1991 book, "Wouldn't It Be Nice," in New Hampshire. The plaintiffs claim that the book makes several false assertions involving song authorship and members of the band. They sued in New Hampshire after; missing the filing deadline for libel suits, in California. Wilson's lawyers had ai> gued that the case should not be heard here because New Hampshire has almost no connection to the case.

Broken promise means more than chewing tobacco Dear Ann Landers: When I met "Jimmy" five years ago, I was a moderately heavy smoker and he occasionally used chewing tobacco. He frequently expressed his dislike of my smoking, and I let him know how I felt about his "social dipping." We tried to quit together at one point but were unsuccessful. When a close relative of mine died of emphysema, I finally managed to stop smoking. After we became engaged, Jimmy promised to give up his habit but told me he wanted to do it v gradually. Three months ago, we were married. I asked only one thing of him — that he not bring any dip on our honeymoon. He agreed. Well, you guessed it. The third day of ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. our honeymoon, I discovered dip spilled on the bathroom counter. When I asked Jimmy about it, he said it was no big deal and got mad at me for "snooping." I cannot begin to describe how angry and hurt I am. Jimmy insists I'm overreacting and says I should get over it. Ann, it's not only that I dislike dipping, it is a matter of a broken promise and a blatant lack of consideration. I am not sure what I should do about this. When I tried to bring up the subject immediately after the honeymoon, Jimmy refused to discuss it. Instead of trying to make good on his promise, he leaves spit cans where I can see them. I am becoming very bitter about this and find myself snapping at him for every little thing. Obviously, I am NOT "getting over it" and need some advice. — A Disappointed Newlywed in Greensboro, N.C. Dear Greensboro: What Jimmy does not seem to understand is that this has gone far beyond the chewing issue. It is TV TONIGHT now a matter of basic integrity. He broke his word and tried to cover it up. And now he leaves those nasty spit cans where you can see them and tells you to "get over it." Your husband has a serious addiction. Unless he seeks professional help to overcome it, your marriage is in for some very stormy weather, and I wouldn't bet on its survival. Dear Ann Landers: Yesterday, my husband, "Bill," and I were having lunch in an upscale restaurant. A male acquaintance on the way to his table stopped by, rubbed Bill's bald head and made a tasteless comment. This has happened before. You can bet men who do this invariably have a healthy head of hair themselves. How can people be so insensitive as to say such things as "Put your hat on, the glare off your head is blinding me." My husband has a super personality and takes the ribbing better than I do. But he and millions of others like him do not choose to be bald. Such remarks are total-, ly uncalled for, and although the recipif ent may good-naturedly laugh them off, they do hurt. Please address this in your column, Ann. Maybe some of the jerks who think such remarks are funny will recognize themselves and try to be more sensitive. — Bill's Wife in Florida Dear Wife in Florida: The "jerks" rarely recognize themselves, and when they do, they offer as a defense "No harm was intended," "You're too thin-skinned," or "Where's your sense of humor?" Individuals who joke around about another person's weight, height, baldness, etc., are clods. The best response is NO response — a long, cold stare will convey the message.
