And he doesn't real ]y care if he ever makes another movie. Bwarta Bill was in town f6r a few days to visit his family. He rarely gets back to Hollywood, the town that made him rich and famous, these days. Mostly, he divides his time between his homes in Switzerland and' Kenya. He and a couple of partners own some 1,300 acres in Kenya, at Nanyuki, ; on the northern slopes of Mt. Kenya,. This is Holden's Shangri-la, a place where he has found peace and contentment — and a purpose. "I expect," he says, "to spend most of my time in Africa from now on. I feel at home there."

During fiscal 1%7 and the first six months of 1968, U.S. coin production was limited to composite or clod-type coins. The growth in total number of coins produced in the 18- month period slackened substantially—an indication .that the shortage had been alleviated. The smooth changeover from silver to clad coins has proved the value of money is not determined by gold or silver, but rather if money can adequately perform the economic functions for which it is designed, Tune in on this GE special • Solid-state design • Big'214" dynamic speaker,* Rugged polystyrene cas« with carry thong • Automatic volume control • Built-in Antenna • Includes earphone.

He's doing one in Mexico soon - "The Wild Bunch" - because it is about a period of history which intrigues him. Otherwise, he'll stay in Africa and soak up contentment. "Africa has gotten to me," he says. "The wild life, the scenery, the climate, the sense of being away from it all." Of course, it isn't as though he had left civilization behind. In the center of his 1,300 acres is his Mt. Kenya Safari Club, which is a pretty fancy pad. "We've taught the,bartenders how to mix a good Martini," he says, "and the chef can charcoal - broil a .steak to perfection." So Holden is roughing it within reason. But he doesn't always stay at the club. He has gotten deeply involved in Kenya affairs,, and the young government has a game commission which often asks Holden to, go on survey safaris. "I'm on safari a lot," he says. "We go to remote areas to survey the game, to see if those places are suitable for moving some of the animals and birds." He is also on the Kenya Film .NAVAJO NURSE BECOMES AF MAJOR ' AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Loretta S. Jendritza of the Air Force Academy hospital is particularly proud of two things. She is a full-blood Navajo and recently was promoted to the rank of. major, the first woman of her tribe to attain this high rank as an Air.Force nurse. Maj. Jendritza, operating room supervisor at the hospital, is married to Warren E. Jendritza, who works at the nearby Colorado Springs Post Office. Mrs. Jendritza has been in the Air Force since. 1956 and it the Academy hospital nearly four years. Commission, which is trying to establish a film laboratory there. NowadaySj whenever a film company visits, they ship their film elsawhere to be processed. The Kenya government would like to keep some of that business at home, as a first step to establishing a film industry. Holden is working to help with that project. He and his associates are also developing a game farm on their property. They, feel that native game — various types of antelopes and buffalos — can be made sources of food, and they believe these are better for the purpose, than imported cattle, which are subject to diseases that the native game are immune to. Holden is also working on a series of nine documentaries about East Africa, being produced by David Wolper. "And I spend a lot of time," be says, "trying to persuade visitors not to take wild animals home as pets. They think cheetahs are cute.— they are — but they need a wild diet. As pets, they require certain things — calcium and vitamin shots and diet supplements — which make them harder to care for than a baby.
