A.--Excellent results can be SPARKLING STARDOM -- Melba Moore hit the top in April when she won Broadway's ranking honor, a Tony award for the best supporting role in a musical, "Purlie." Stardom hasn't changed her she says. Being Herself Causes Some Problems for Melba Moore By NAOMI ROCK AP Newifeaturet Writtr NEW YORK (AP) - Melba Moore peered into a mirror, on the peach-colored wall of her tiny L-shaped dressing room. Parting her black hair down the center, she fashioned a short pigtail just above each ear, picked up two foot-long pigtails and began tying them to her own hair. "I'm not quite used to being a star," she said. "I can't imagine other people doing things for me--like a hairdresser." She smiled broadly--a childlike grin that faintly dimpled her chin and put a sparkle in her dark, almond-shaped eyes. Between the smile and the pigtails she barely looked 16, much less her age--25. "I really flipped over the award," she said, speaking of winning the Antoinette Perry Award in April for the best supporting role in a musical-"Purlie." "Butt here's a lot of hard work ahead. I can't assume that because I did this successfully I can do anything as weir." She ."spoke in a soft, even tone that'., betrayed no hint of her voice range, a range that takes her .-speaking voice from a girlish pitch to a gravely growl, and her singing voice from sweet soprano to throaty roar. But seeing her there, barefoot and suit. been herself--tmpreten- she's tious. "But that causes me problems now," she said with a laugh. 'People keep telling me there are certain things I can no longer be nonchalant about--like riding buses, where people recognize you, and dressing like a bum. "At best the way I dress is very, very casual. I like nice clothes but I never took very much interest in them. "Now it's like living under a microscope. My hair has to be in place and my makeup just right. I know it's important to look good, but what comes across, on the stage or on the street, is what the person really like." As far as she's concerned, Melba -continued, stardom hasn't changed the basic who quit a brief career leaching music in Newark, N.J., to find her way in the world of show biz. "I don't think that I, Melba, am any different, but some people treat me as though I were," she said, a touch of sadness in her voice. "The things that have changed are the outward ones, like demands on my time. I was just as busy before, but in a different way. I was busy knocking on people's doors. People are coming to me now." obtained with a dry mix unless he soil is clay or does not drain jroperly. The. dry mix is made 'rotn one part of portland cement to five parts of sand. After digging out the path for the :ricks, apply the dry mix to a leight of two inches. Set the aricks into the dry base, standing them on edge and placing ,hem about a half-inch apart. When the bricks are solidly in place, spread more dry mix into :he joints. The easiest way to do this is to take a shovelful of the mix and throw it onto the bricks, then another shovelful in a defferent spot, and so on When the entire pathway is covered, use a long-handled brush to spread the mix so that it falls into the joints. Using a garden hose with a medium spray, wet the joints so that the mix settles down well below the surface. Apply more mix between the joints, then spray again. Repeat the procedure a third time. When the mix is well packed into the joints at the desired level, allow it to harden, then brush the excess from the tops of the bricks. Q.--I use one of the rooms In [· our house as a part-time office. I have three metal filing cipi- nets. The green paint on them looks kind of seedy and I wouid like to repaint. Will an ordinary paint be all right or must these cabinets have some kind of special paint? A.--Any paint specified for use on metal will do. But before you paint, clean the cabinets Jioroughly with a mild detergent and warm water. You may discover, as a friend did recently, that the poor appearance of the cabinets was caused by dirt and grime rather than a deterioration of the paint. In any case, the washing should be undertaken even if it develops that painting is required. Q.--Is it necessary to clean all the paint from a brush if latex paint was used? A--Yes. Latex paint hardens on the bristles the same as oil paint does. The quicker you remove the latex paint from the brush with water, the easier it will be. A woman knows a woman's needs.
