Theater Week By WILLIAM GLOVER AP Dram* Critic NEW YORK (AP) - "Room Service" was installed anew Tuesday night at the Edison Theater, a 1937 whiz with some 1970 wheeze, but still tolerably amusing. All the farcical liijinks about a bunch of novices fast-talking a hit play into being stands as one of Broadway's best showbiz satires. The text is still valid, but the performance is less than totally satisfying. It isn't until Ihe company directed by Harold Stone is well into the middle act that more than the twinkly light frame which surrounds the stage begins to glow. While the whole dizzy plot premise is being set up, the actors cudgel lines so fast and loudly that drollery is almost obliterated. Ron Leibman, usually typecast in roles of incipient psychosis, works desperately to convert some ornate mannerisms into comic represcnlation of the shoestring producer flimflamming his way to success. Leibman and his cohorts settle into a more persuasive tempo when Michael Lombard comes on for an hilarious turn as a waiter auditioning for a chance to act. Reinforcing the subsequent merriment are defl performances by Darrell Zwerling, almost-angel of the inner show; Alek Primrose, a myopic doctor and Joel Wolfe, collector of bad debts. In an ear largely Intent on more meaningful drama, the frankly escapist mood of "Room Service" is undeniably attrac tive. If you aren't too insisten on the sort of perfection that the Marx brothers brought to such scampers, relax and enjoy, Brezhnev Meets With Castro's Little Brother MOSCOW (-AP). - Sovie Communist party leader Leoni I.

Chief Long advised parents to ee to it that their youngsters' icycles are thoroughly inspect- d by a knowledgeable mech- nic, and noted that many bi- ycle retailers were offering free ike inspections throughout May, which is celebrated as American Bike Month. Brakes, ights, reflectors, chains, spokes ires, gearing devices and other ·Hal parts should be checked adjusted and repaired, he said. 'Today's youngster leads an ctive life,"' Chief Long said, 'and uses his bike for practic- lly everything. Obviously, the like takes a lot of abuse. Thai's 'hy a thorough preventive maintenance inspection is a ,ood idea." The veteran police official it on to say that parents ave the additional respponsibil- ty of making sure their children and observe safe cycling )rocedurcs. "What many people don't rea- ize," he said, "is that a bicycle considered a vehicle, Ihe e as an automobile, and that most of the same rules of vehi- ular traffic apply lo bikes. Therefore, such regulations as seeping to Ihe righl and observ- ng stop signs, red lights and ine-way streets apply to bicycl- sls as well as motorists." The bicyclist should consider himself a bicycle driver, driv- ng a vehicle in and with the stream of Iraffic. It is his responsibility to drive safely." Many community groups am veterans organizations cooper ale with the bicycle industry in celebrating American B i k e Month by conducting commu nily-wide bicycle safely pro grams, inspections, rodeos field days and races. "These programs," Chief Long said, "deserve our complete cooperation and support. Riding a bicycle is part of Ihe life pattern of American children. We should see to it that it remains a safe, pleasurable and healthy activity." To help parents instruct their children in safe bicycle driving techniques, Chief Long passed along the following safe bike driving code, received from the Bicycle Institute of America. 1. Obey all traffic regulations, lights, stop signs, one-way streets. 2. Keep right. Ride single file. Don't weave in and out, swerve, race or stunt in traffic. Never :)itch a ride on a truck or other vehicle. 3. For night riding, be sure to lave a white light in front and a red light or state-approved re- Blackmun Happy With Outcome ROCHESTER, Minn.
