Lincoln Service has helped thousands prepare for these tests every year since 1948. It is one of the largest and oldest privately owned schools of its kind and is not connected with the Government. To acquaint the readers of this newspaper with the splendid opportunities in Government positions full details have been printed in a new booklet: "U. S. Civil Service Positions and Salaries" which will be mailed free to anyone who requests it. No obligation.

H. WEILER (C) 1»71 N.Y. Times News Service NEW YORK - The Eskimos are coming. Or, rather, the Eskimos are staying put and we are going to them — "we" be ing the ever - adventurous Martin Ransohoff and crew of stal wart, long - johned moviemak­ ers. 'Producer Ransohoff has purchased rights to "White Dawn," James Houston's recent novel about three whalers who were shipwrecked in 1896 and had to come to terms with the Eskimos, their culture and their climate. The film, to be shot in both English and the Eskimo language, will get under way next spring on ice - cold Baffin Island — 900 miles from the North Pole, where the real-life events that inspired Houston's novel took place. Houston, a Canadian w h o served as the first civil administrator of West Baffin Island for 12 years, will also function as technical supervisor on "White Dawn." Except for the three principals — one of whom Ransohoff says will be played by a black actor — all of the roles will be acted by Eskimos. • • • CHESTER ERSKINE is having another cinematic fling. Erskine — a veteran writer, producer and director—had a hand in such diverse items over the years as "The Sailor Takes a Wife," "The Egg and I." "All My Sons," "Take One False Step," "Androcles and the Lion" and "Split Second," but his last movie was "The Wonderful Country" in 1959. Now, all of a sudden, he pops up on Fire Island, directing "A Change in the Wind," based on his own screenplay. "A Change in the Wind" takes place during the prohibition era — in fact, on the very day that Lindbergh flew the Atlantic — and it concerns an Irishman who comes to this country but continues to help finance the cause for Irish independence by becoming a rum runner. The cast includes Anne Meara, Stephen Joyce, Bill Devane, Richard Mulligan and John Pleshette. • • IN CASE you haven't already been told, Sven Nykvist is shooting "Viskningar Och Rop" at Taxinge Nasby. If you don't know what the devil we're talking about, you will when we tell you that Taxinge Nasby is a sumptuous Swedish manor house, that Sven Nykvist is the brilliant cameraman who has worked on so many movies with Ingmar Bergman, and that "Viskningar Och Rop" is Swedish for "Whisperings and Cries," the film now being di- rr"'ed by Bergman. Sometimes it's difficult know­ ing exactly what a Bergman film is about — there were even those who couldn't quite figure out what Elliott Gould's problem was in Bergman's "T h e Touch" — but this one is reported to be about the intense relationships of three sisters and a doctor. It's set at t h e turn of the century and it stars Harriet Andersson, Liv Ullmann and Intrid Thulin as the sisters. • • • THEY DON'T make movies the way they used to — or do they? Listen to what producer Oliver A. Unger has in t h e works. "We're remaking a cou pie of wonderful oldies, 'Treasure Island' and 'The Call of the Wild," he said, brimming over with almost childlike enthusiasm. Unger, a movie veteran, has not forgotten that "Treasure Island" has been filmed four Quickie Divorces Attract Business lt:3t-Clnema Sunday Night, "International House" A Gift" Vinct Oibson, «, 7, 11 1, J, 11- and "It's il:3s-Best of .Hollywood, it, 13 — "Baby, Tht Rain Must Fall" United Fund Film, 10, 11 U :M-N Minutee, 11 Movie, t • cannon, 1 IMS-ABC Weekend News, it, 11 11 :30-KSN Lata Newt, 1, 1, 11 Hearing Is Postponed WICHITA (AP) — A Sedgwick County district court hearing on contempt citations against promoters of doggy bing was postponed Friday until 10 a.m. Oct. 26. The continuation was requested by the attorney for the corporation conducting the bingo phying-dog racing enterprise, Ken's Klub Inc., doing business as Wichita GH Club, Inc. District Court Judge Howard C. Kline agreed to the continuation because of the absence of the regular attorney for the corporation. The first doggy bingo games were Tuesday night, but were halted after sheriff's officers seized all the equipment on a court order obtained by County Atty. Keith Sanborn. SAN JUAN, P.R. (AP) With quickie Mexican divorces outlawed, the Dominican Republic's new seven-day divorce law is attracting U.S. business Inquiries started flowing in after singer Barbra Streisand and actor Elliot Gould were.di­ vorced in the Dominican Republic last July. Lawyers in the Dominican Republic and representatives elsewhere seem to be outdoing attorneys in Haiti, which instituted quickie divorces last November and December, about the time Mexico banned them. Advertise Haiti and the Dominican Republic share the Caribbean island of Hispaniola and the Dominican Legislature wouldn't be outdone by a neighbor. It legalized the quickie divorce in May. Enterprising attorneys set up offices and began advertising in newspapers published where divorce is illegal or difficult. Some Puerto Ricans are concerned about the effect on the morals of this predominantly Roman Catholic society. Balta sar Corrada del Rio speaking as "a Puerto Rican, a Catholic and a lawyer," said: "It is a shame to treat such a serious matter with such little reflecv tion. It is also wrong to make Puerto Ricans go outside their island to dissolve a marriage which was made here, which affects other people here, and which is being destroyed by conditions here." Three Divorces Corrada del Rio says he has handled only tliree divorces in his 12-year career. The three most common grounds for divorce in Puerto Rico are separation, desertion, and physical or mental cruelty. Mutual consent is not enough for divorce here. Barbra Elliott times already and "Call of the Wild" twice, but that doesn't bother him in the least. He's convinced that what the world needs now is family entertainment. Besides, his version of "Treasure Island" written by Wolf Mankowitz and starring Mark Lester, will include Robert Louis Stevenson's actual experiences in writing the novel for his stepson, Lloyd. And his remake of "Call of the Wild" is certain to concentrate more on the adventures of a dog that joins a wolf pack than on the love story that was stressed in William Wellman's 1935 film Paft 17 The Hutchinson Newi Sunday, Oct. 10,1171 with Clark Gable and Loretti Young. Come to think of it, they don't make them like Gabli and Youhg any more, either. • • • SUSAN MARTIN is one woman who isn't going to be stopped by male chauvinism among moviemakers. At 29, she is already a full - fledged producer- editor, having served in that . capacity on "Punishment Park," Pete Watkins's simulated documentary about the brutal treatment of draft evaders that will be shown at tha New York Film Festival Oct. 11. Now Miss Martin is looking forward to her job as assistant director and editor of "Tout Va Bien," Jean - Luc Godard's film starring Yves Montand and Jane Fonda. Corrada del Rio also questions the legality of the seven day Dominican divorce, which he said did not give time for a party to contest the suit. A Haitian divorce can be obtained for a little as $500 in at tomey 's fees. The partner seeking a divorce goes to Haiti for three days to set the procedure in motion with an attorney. After that the partner can leave Haiti; the attorney takes care of the rest.
