t 26 Wednesday, December 8, 1976 Random Notes Capitol out of Lennon suit Not all suicides considered 'punishment for survivors' J Advice By CHARLES M. YOUNG Rolling Stone Writer JOHN LENNON seems unlikely to sign again with Capitol Records, now that Capitol has withdrawn from the expensive lawsuit-counter-suit go-round with Morris Levy, president of Roulette Records, for releasing an unauthorized Lennon album. Capitol decided to settle with Levy for $170,000 of the $290,000 originally awarded by the court. This means that Lennon, who was awarded $150,000, will have to fight Levy's appeal of the decision by himself. That's poor strategy by Capitol, if the label hopes to woo back the former Beatle, currently a free agent for recording purposes. Since lawyer fees and the printing of transcripts could cost Levy up to $50,000, sources close to Lennon speculate that Levy may still hope to get Lennon to make an album for him to avoid the stress and expenses of another trial. Levy denies such assertions. "All I want is for justice to prevail," he says. "John lied to me. and I feel morally bound to pursue it." CHICAGO WAS the first band to earn a certified platinum album for Columbia, and Cartier was the first jeweler to use platinum in its settings, so there was some underlying logic to the group posing at the New York store with a 25 lb. platinum bar worth $60,000, $75,000, $100,000 or $300,000, depending on who you talked to. With appropriately sarcastic oohs and ahs, the musicians hefted the bar back and forth in the showroom for photographers and took a tour of the workshop. "It is the union of two great artistic forms," commented Cartier's design director, Alfred Durante, who described himself as a "big fan" of the group which has sold 21 million albums. "Get away from me. Rolling Unscramble these four Jumbles, one letter to each square, to form four ordinary words. Stone stinks," said guitarist Terry Kath, when asked for his own reaction. "Every time we read it someone starts pounding the walls. You only appreciate garbage music." FINALLY OVER the anemia that caused the cancellation of his "Alice Goes to Hell" tour, Alice Cooper is making up for lost time. Reached in Toronto where he is recording a new album tentatively titled "Whiskey and Lace" for early spring release, Alice declared the record "total rock & roll. It's not even a concept." When that's finished, he will star in the stage play and movie biography of turn-of-the-century evangelist Billy Sunday. "He used to pick up chairs and use them to chase the devil around the stage. He was bigger than Billy Graham," says Alice. Producer of the play is Bill Sargent who last year tried to reunite the Beatles, tried to get a man to fight a great white shark as live theater, and successfully produced "Give 'em Hell, Harry." Alice further plans to collaborate with Bernie Taupin on a musical for next Christmas. "We really like each other's lyrics. He's more Tennessee Williams and I'm more . . . well, like 'Only Women Bleed'." AFTER STOPPING Tina Turner's car for a traffic violation, a West Hollywood police officer saw a handgun in Tina's purse and arrested her for carrying a concealed weapon, a misdemeanor that can carry a sentence of up to six months in county jail. Her attorney expects the charges to be dropped because she has been receiving threatening phone calls over the past four months. , Living alone since the break-up with her husband Ike, she now has a bodyguard at all performances. Beyond the phone calls, a car she had ridden in and apartments THAT SCRAMBLED WORD GAME by Henri Arnold and Bob Lee she had visited have reportedly been shot up. SHERBET, an Australian band which has sold more than a million albums in its native country (which has a total population of 13 million), stopped by the office to complain about American work laws for foreigners. "It's disgusting," said guitarist Garth Porter. "Neil Diamond can come to our country and walk out with a fortune. We come here and they can't even get permits in time for us to go on TV shows for which we were already booked." The group had been scheduled for "American Bandstand" and "Midnight Special," among others. The United States and Australia have no artistic exchange program as do the United States and Britain. Fellow Australians AC-DC had to cancel a tour here for the same reason. ', EVERYONE AROUND Paul Kantner swears he is serious about his stated intention to climb Mt. Everest in the coming year. The government of Nepal issues permits to those making the trek and is booked . solid through 1980, but Kantner says he will do it illegally with one guide on the north face during winter. Asked why, he said; somewhat, un-originally, "Because it's, there,''' f Grace Slick had her own theory: "He's climbing Everest because it's the only mountain in the area that he can pronounce." The Nepalese embassy said they would have to write home to find out the penalties for illegal mountain climbing. a -- HUBOG ' I s I k A A I YURRC 1 I I Y I I I A A GUMPSY I y I LUMUTT FTT "T I LJ I T Stand for the speaker!

DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just read the letter from the woman whose mother committed suicide. I was appalled that her psychiatrist had told her, "Suicide is punishment for the survivors. The person who does this dastardly deed plans it that way. It is the ultimate payback for real or imagined abuse." No wonder the woman cries a lot. That psychiatrist of hers needs a psychiatrist. If there's anything the poor girl doesn't need it's more guilt. Twice in the last three months I "was lucky enough to be pulled back from the brink. I have a husband who adores me and two small children who need, their mother's love and care. 1 I was the, .victim of massive depressions that left me in a state of anxiety. Death seemed like the only release when the darkness moved in -I never once planned a suicide but I attempted it four times. - ( - I still have bad days but I have good ones, too. Writing this letter has helped make this day a better one. hope it does the same for the woman who is grieving over her mother s suicide -r and secretly holding her self responsible, t- Horse's Mouth Dear Friend: Thank you for valuable and illuminating . letter, Here's another: DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am not a therapist, but I know something about suicidal people because I am one myself. It may be true (as that woman's doctor said) that some people kill themselves to punish the survivors, but it is unfair to say this is the way it is for all. I have attempted suicide several times once as a teenager. My life has been a series of failures -including unsuccessful and prolonged periods of psychiatric treatment. The reason I have not killed myself is because I don't want to lay any guilt on my daughter. My concern for her , outweighs the pain of living. I wonder how many "accidents" were carefully planned suicides by people who had no desire to live but wanted to spare their loved ones the guilt Thousands, I'll bet.
